My need of knowing who created me , the aim of my existence, and where I am going to go is much more important than my need of food. Actually, having no food leads to death, and death will happen one day inevitably, but if there is a retribution after the death and I was not on the right path, I will lose Paradise and receive the punishment of the Creator.
Is there a Creator For This World?
The natural common sense (Fetrah) is the strongest evidence of the Creator’s existence . Allah the Al Mighty says: ((So set you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him) your face towards the religion (of pure Islâmic Monotheism) Hanîf (worship none but Allâh Alone). Allâh’s Fitrah (i.e. Allâh’s Islâmic Monotheism) with which He has created mankind. …)) Sûrat Ar-Rûm (The Romans) 30
This truth ,which all people agree on ,does not need any proof , because generally humankind agrees on the existence of the Creator who controls this universe. In fact, all people agree on the Creator’s existence except few of them. Here are some of the evidences that prove the Creator’s existence of this wide perfect universe.
First, the measurement of this universe cannot be described. The distance from the moon to the earth is 384,000 kilometers and the light of the moon reaches the earth in less than two seconds. Moreover, the galaxy is about 90,000 light-years across. Every light year is 10 trillion kilometers. This means that the measurement of our galaxy is 900,000 trillion Kilometers. Furthermore, there are millions of galaxies and stars far in the discovered space which need milliards of light years , so how much is this distance? and how much is the distance of the unknown space? In addition, the size of the earth is bigger than one trillion cubic kilometers. The sun is 1,3 million times the size of the earth. The volume of VY Canis Majoris is 9 billion times that of the sun . The volume of Andromeda is 1000 milliard milliard times that of sun.
So, who created this universe with its sky, earth , human beings, animals, and plants? Has it been found without a founder? Nothingness can find nothing because it is nothing! Or has this universe found itself by itself? If it has created itself , then it must had been there before it had created itself.
This is false because how can the doer be the object, and the Influential can be the effect, and the causative can be the cause? So, if it was there before its creation, how can it create? Allah the Al Mighty says: “Were they created by nothing? Or were they themselves the creators?” Sûrat At-Tûr (The Mount)35
Therefore, there must be a creator for the existence of the universe. Is it the Nature as some say? But the Nature is a part of the world and the world has not created itself, So how can this part create itself? Who created the nature? Why this nature cannot create any more as it has created itself in the past? How can nature gives the creatures the ability of reproduction controls this process ? If there is no control over the propagation , the locust , for example , will eat all the green plants on the earth during few years! If the universe has been created by chance , why does the system of this universe is still steady and has no mess and disorders? Moreover, is nature blind -as some say- and it creates mindlessly and randomly so, one who has nothing can give nothing. Who has no apple cannot give you an apple unless he got it. So , how can the nature grants human beings the mind while it has no one?! Furthermore, how can nature lead people to follow the right naturally by the natural common sense (Fetrah)? Even if it opposes their desires? Also, if one does not follow the right , his conscience scolds him _unless a bad change acquired to his natural common sense (Fetrah)_So how can this happen? If it has been said that the social habits leads people to grow up on good morals which leads them to blame themselves . Therefore, why did the society choose this habit if the morality is not a natural common sense (Fetrah)? So, who created this morality?? Does nature has any morals?
Is this fine, well-organized and systematic universe exists by chance as some have said? The chance is possible in some cases and impossible in others. Here is an example which is an evidence against the myth of the existence of this universe by chance, it is huge increase in the number of creators . For example, take ten papers , write a series numbers on each one from one to ten, put them in a box, and shake it well. Then , try to pick them from the box serially from one to ten without looking at them. The chance of picking the number one firstly is 1 to 10, the chance of picking the number one then the number two sequentially is 1 to 100 , and the chance of picking number one to number ten serially is 1 to 10,000,000. That means there is only one chance for a correct choice among 10,000,000 wrong times. This is to coordinate only ten numbers. What about the coordination of this perfect universe?
If the earth was smaller, its gravity would be less and it would not hold water and air in it as in the case with the moon. In contrast, if the size of earth is bigger, the gravity will increase and the life on the earth will be impossible. So, who determine this size of the earth? Is it the chance? If the earth is closer to the sun, it will be burned , and if the earth is farther, it will be frozen. Is it the chance which assign this perfect distance?
Moreover, the earth rotates around its axis at a rate of 1000 miles per hour. If it rotates at a rate of 100 miles per hour, the length of the day and the night will increase 10 times more than its currently length. Also, as a result, the plants will burn during the day and freeze at night. In contrast, if the rotation of the Earth about its axis increases up to 10,000 miles per hour, the length of the day and the night will be the tenth of its currently length.
If the thickness of the earth’s atmosphere is thinner than its currently thickness, the meteors will penetrate the earth’s outer sphere daily and they will fall down on the earth and will burn it. In contrast, if the thickness of the earth atmosphere is thicker than it is, the rays ,which animals and plants depend on and which kills the bacteria and produces vitamins, will disturb . In addition, If the sun shines with half of its currently light, we will freeze . In contrast, if it shines with more than half of its current light, we will be dust.
Moreover, the percentage of the oxygen in the air is 21%. If this percentage changes to 50%, all flammable materials in the world will become susceptible to ignition with the first spark of lighting. Similarly, if the percentage of the oxygen in the air reduces to 8%, many features of civilization which was discovered by man would not be possible such as fire. Regarding to animal and plants life , look at this amazing relationship between the oxygen and the carbon dioxide. Animals breath oxygen and breath out the carbon dioxide that plants need in order to live while the plants give the animals the oxygen. If this exchange does not exist, the animals use oxygen thus, man and animals will die and vice versa.
The reproduction of man is based on the existence of the sperm in the male and the ovum in the female. Then, the fetus is produced as a result of their union. Hence, why do female has an ovum and the male has a sperm? And why do they haven’t the same thing , why each one is vital to one other?
Moreover, the fetus has eyes before its exit from the womb although it does not need them inside the womb, but it is going to need them when it goes out of the womb. Also, the fetus has the hearing ability although it does not need it inside his mother’s womb. When a fetus is in a womb, the teeth have their roots. Besides that the fetus is provided with a respiratory system to use after his exit from the womb. This show that the creator of this fetus knows that he will go out of this womb to another world where he needs these organs and that why He provides him with them.
If it has been said that who has made the spacecraft and has designed the astronauts’ outfit is someone who had never been taught or knew nothing about knowledge, we won’t believe that, because he must has a data about the space ,temperature degrees, pressure, and etc… As well, the one who had created this fetus surely knows that it will go out from this womb to another environment where he will need these organs . That is why He provides him with them . It is not the chance , but He is Allah (God) the Creator , the Omniscient.
In Addition, the human body consists of cells where each one weighs part of a billionth of a gram. Each cell includes a nucleus which includes foreign bodies including chromosomes carrying the genes from parents to children and grandchildren.
Where are the genes in a cell that cannot be seen with a naked eye? How do the instructions transport? Who does issue them to specify the color of hair, eyes, height, facial features , the way he walks , mood, bones, muscles, fingers, nails, and the genetic diseases…etc There is no doubt that cells are forced to change their shape and nature to fore full the needs of the creature. Some of cells are for flesh , some are for skin, some are part of the formation of the right ear or the left ear, and so on.
Hundreds of thousands cells look like they are been pushed to do the right thing at the right time in the right place. The truth is that cells are obedient. No doubt that these operations are an expression of the divine power. Human body includes 50 trillion cells. Each cell contains 46 chromosomes. Each chromosome contains more than fifty thousand genes. The number of the genes that cause the individual differences between people is” one hundred fifteen with eighteen zeros on its right (115,000,000,000,000,000,000)”.
Who is the Creator of this world ?
There is no sense in saying that this universe has existed by chance versus billions and billions of possibilities which emphasize that this universe does not exist by chance. What has been mentioned above about the series of numbers from one to ten is an example. In addition, what is the percentage of chance to write a perfect book in math by typing on a keyboard randomly by an infant? No doubt that this is impossible . What about the possibility of the existence of this universe by chance?
Here is another example about the possibility of the formation of a protein molecule by chance. Actually, each protein molecule is composed of five compounds (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulphur ). The number of atoms that make up the protein molecule is around forty thousand atoms. As of 2008, there are 117 known elements in the nature which are distributed randomly. Accordingly, the possibility of this composition between the five compounds to form only one protein molecule is one to (one with 196 zeros on the right) which is unuttered number.
All that are for the formation of one protein molecule only. Thus, how could we scientifically imagine the possibility of all biological, physiological, geological, astronomical combinations, and others in this universe by chance or without a wise and a creator? Suppose that this protein molecule has been formed by chance. Therefore, who can put the great secret in this molecule which is the spirit? Allah the Al mighty says: ((And they ask you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him) concerning the Ruh (The spirit); Say:” The Ruh (The spirit) is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my lord. And of knowledge , you (mankind) have been given only a little.”)) Surat Al- Isra (The Journey By Night)XVII 85 Allah the Al mighty says: (( This is the creation of Allah. So show Me that which those (whom you worship) besides Him have created. Nay, the Zalimun ( polytheists, wrongdoers and those who do not believe in the oneness of Allah) are in plain error.)) Surat Lugman (Lugman) 11 Allah the Al mighty says: (( O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily, those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatches away a thing from them, they will have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought.)) Surat Al Hajj (The Pilgrimage)73
All what have been mentioned above indicate that the life system is not a messy one, but in fact, it is a proposed and planned system. Also, the weak possibility of their claim is impossible. Actually , who brought the life in this living creature?
Accordingly, this universe must have a creator who has a great power that enable Him to create this universe . Moreover, He must has knowledge , wisdom, and life. Also, He exists without any need of any one. He is the Creator and He is a Single God.
If there were two Gods of the universe , they must be both a live , able, knowing , willing and able to choose. The two who are able to choose can choose differently, because each one is not forced to conform on the other’s choice. Hence, if one of them wants something against the other’s desire, compulsorily, one of them will achieve his desire without the other. The one who cannot achieve his desire is unable. In fact, the unable cannot be a god.
If there were more than one creator, then would be more than one god. This would lead to the imperfection of heavens and earth. Also, heavens and earth would be out of their system, because the interests would conflict, each god would want to prevail over the other, each god would want to be the one who command and forbid, each god would take away what he had created, and each would try to overcome the other!
Allah the Al Mighty says: ((Had there been therein (in the heavens and the earth) alilhah (gods) besides Allah, then verily, both would have been ruined. Glorified is Allah, the Lord of the Throne, (High is He) above all that (evil) they associate with Him!)) Al Anbiya (The Prophets) XXI ,22
Allah the Al Mighty says: (( Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him) to these polytheists, pagans ): ” If there had been other alihah (gods) along with Him as they assert, then they would certainly have sought out a way to the Lord of the Throne (seeking His Pleasures and to be near to Him) )) Al-Isra (The Journey by Night) XVII,42
Allah the Al mighty says: (( No son (or offspring) did Allah beget, nor is there any ilah (god) along with Him. (If there had been many gods), then each god would have been taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified is Allah above all that they attribute to Him!)) Surat Al Mu’minun (The Believers)XXIII 91
If someone says: ” I believe in the existence of the Creator and the controller of this universe, but who is the founder of this Creator?” If we agree with this, we would end up with that Allah is the founder of the world, because if something had found Him , so who would found His founder? and so on… till we conclude that there must be a founder of the universe who is Allah.
As a result, we all agree on the existing of God for this universe ,and that this God has no founder. Also, we agree on that He is characterized by the attributes of perfection whereas some of this God’s Attributes can be recognized by our minds and some cannot be recognized without Allah’s messengers who He has sent to us to explain our Creator’s Attributes and to clarify the right way of worship him.
