No one would ever enter an art museum and claim that the pieces of art came into being ‘on their own’. Every masterpiece has an artist’s name labelled beneath it, isn’t it? How then can one deny the existence of a creator for a universe not only so enormous, but also faultless in its mechanism? It is ironic that the same scientists who wonder and marvel while studying the universe, telling us how perfectly everything works, are the same people who claim God to be non-existent.  The existence of perfection in the creations of this world definitely declares the  work of a Creator behind it.

And so when we carefully observe this perfectionhqdefault in the creation of the universe from the smallest cell in the human body to the biggest of galaxies; the way it has all been created flawlessly; it should suffice for anyone with a sense of thinking, to believe that this indefinite accuracy and complete harmony within every creation simply cannot be the product of more than One creator. Indeed, there must be One creator alone who fashioned everything without any deficiency. For if there were more, then it would contradict this very unity and inter-dependancy of the world. 

This isn’t meant to spark a debate on the existence of God; this is an incentive to ponder over the absolute intricacy of the universe, to those who claim to ‘know’; to ponder upon how everything works together, to study how both the massive and the microscopic coordinate together to achieve perfect balance! A little change and the universe would cease to function the way it should, wouldn’t it?

Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding. [Qur’an 3:190]

Do they not look into the realm of the heavens and the earth and everything that Allah has created and [think] that perhaps their appointed time has come near?In what message after this will they then believe? [Qur’an 7:185]

If Allah SWT wasn’t the One, the ONLY One, Self-Sufficient, And perfect, He wouldn’t so confidently challenge us repeatedly in His own revelation [the Qur’an], to ponder, ponder, and think over the creation of this world, this universe, of man, of life, of death and of the temporary state of everything in this world!

And how many a sign within the heavens and earth do they pass over while they, therefrom, are turning away? [Qur’an 12:105]

  1. As the salaf said, those who do not study about Tawheed are either the jaahil(ignorant) or those from the people of innovation and desires.

    MashaAllah. Beautifully written.
    This piece reminded me of what my nana(grandfather) used to tell us while we were young,
    He would tell us that just looking at the sky is enough for a person to have believe in Allah.
    Because just the construction of one bridge requires hundreds of labors and years of work and hundreds of supporting systems etc and SubhanAllah just look at how the stars are hung, look at how the planets obey their command an move in their path, look how since thousands of years there has been not even a second of delay for the sun to rise or set…all this has to have a great creator behind it. SubhanAllah.
    At that time it used to look like a fairy tale but now when we’re grown up and understand the things, everything is a shock and an overwhelming moment of how mighty and great Allah swt is.
