Great Proof of the Absolute Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic) & Therefore the Perfection and Completion of His Knowledge, His Ultimate Wisdom and His Supreme Attributes and Action: (1/2)

Muhammad Alsayed Muhammad

Allah Almighty says in His Wise Book, the Holy Quran, when describing His Will and Ability,

{Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, "Be!"–and it is!}

[Ya-Sin 36: 82]

In other words, if Allah (Glorious & Exalted) wants something, He merely gives the order. He does not need to repeat His Command or confirm it. 

To Him (Glorious & Exalted) belong the keys to the heavens and the earth, to Him all things return, and to Him is the Power of creation and command.

The Verses that refer to the Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic) and to its completeness are too many to count, as are His (Noble & Sublime) creation of the heavens and the earth, the universe and everything contained therein: galaxies, stars, and planets, among which is our earth.

Likewise, one of the greatest signs of the Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic) and its absoluteness is the amazing balance and wonderful harmony of the universe and all it contains.

Then there is also the proportion which is to an unimaginable degree.
Another of the great signs which indicate the Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic) and its completeness is the creation of the human being, in which there are such great blessings they cannot be counted or enumerated…and so on.

Among the ways to demonstrate the greatness of Allah's Wisdom (Mighty & Majestic) and His Ability, which has recently been discovered by modern science, by the most advanced scientific instruments, is the balance and harmony that exists among the parts of the universe.

Also, the make-up of human beings and other living creatures confirms the great Power of Allah (Noble & Sublime) and His Glorious Wisdom and Wondrous Design.

However, we would like to point out other perspectives and indications of the Absolute Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic) and His Supreme Attributes and Actions. Among them are: 

1. Man's Pure, Unspoiled Nature and Honest, Straightforward Reason 

Allah (Mighty & Majestic) created mankind and designed him to believe in His Existence, His Great Power and His Beautiful Attributes.

Thus, we find that if man is faced with a calamity or disaster, he quickly turns to Allah
Almighty in prayer, time and time again, knowing of the Existence of His Lord (Blessed &
Exalted) and having faith in Him and His Great Ability, knowing that He (Glorious & Exalted) Alone is the All-Powerful, that He can remove all of the misfortune and disaster that has befallen him, due to His Absolute Power (Noble & Sublime) and His Great Mercy.
Man's honest, straightforward reason will not accept denial of the Existence of Allah
Almighty, of His Supreme Attributes, or Absolute Power.

If man would only look at himself and contemplate the composition of his own body,
especially after great scientific advances in medicine and in various other fields, with the development of scientific instruments to a great extent, he would know the Supreme Wisdom of Allah (Glorious & Exalted), His Absolute and Complete Power and His Wondrous and Amazing Design.

What if we looked at the human being and contemplated the vast universe created by Allah (Mighty & Majestic), from the heavens and the earths (since science has discovered that the earth is divided into seven layers), the galaxies, stars and living creatures (such as animals and birds), and other nonliving things without souls (such as trees and inanimate objects), especially after the advance of the telescope and the electron microscope, we would see with our own eyes the Great and Awesome Power of Allah (Glorious & Exalted).

As such, man's unspoiled good nature and straightforward, honest, superior, and rightly guided logic is one of the great signs of the Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic) and His Supreme Attributes and Acts. 

2. The Invitation of the Prophets and Messengers and Their Supporting Miracles and Wonders Are a Sign and Testimony to the Truth of Their Message 

Allah Almighty sent the prophets and messengers to call people to believe in Him (Noble & Sublime) and to have faith in His Supreme Attributes, His Absolute Ability, His Ultimate Wisdom, and the Perfection and Comprehensiveness of His Knowledge (Glorious & Exalted), and thus to single Him (Mighty & Majestic) out exclusively for worship, without associating anything with Him. 

Allah (Mighty & Majestic) also supported His prophets and messengers with miracles and wonders that would verify the truth of their message of the Oneness of Allah (Noble & Sublime) and the truth of all the knowledge they bring about His Supreme Attributes and Absolute Power—miracles and wonders that no one but prophets and messengers would be able to produce. 

 Among the miracles granted to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were:  

The splitting of the moon for him (pbuh) This was discovered by science as a result of fissures and gaseous ruptures that were very deep and which could not be explained as the result of meteors and other foreign bodies impacting the moon. This was due to their extreme depth and length, ranging from several hundred meters to hundreds of kilometers in straight or twisting lines, and these great, long rifts passed by a number of deep holes. This was in addition to the discovery of a belt of movable rocks on the moon. This is a characteristic scientists have not found on any other celestial body, and these scientists (among whom were geologists) explained that all of this is the result of the splitting of the moon one time in the past. These rifts have been photographed recently, so that everyone can see them, and so that they might stand as testament to the truth of this great miracle, as support from Allah (Glorious & Exalted) for the call and message of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). This scientific discovery and others are among the reasons many, many people have embraced Islam, accepting it as their religion, and believing and having faith in the Messenger of Islam, Muhammad (pbuh). - The pouring forth of water from between his (pbuh) fingers - The blessing in a little food such that it feeds a multitude - The longing of the tree trunk for Allah's Messenger (pbuh) and hearing the sound of its weeping - The food which glorified Allah, audibly, during the lifetime of Allah's Messenger (pbuh) - The restoration of Qatadah ibn Nu`aman's eye when he was injured on the Day of Uhud (a battle). It fell on his cheek, but then it became the better of his eyes and the sharper in vision. - The healing of some of his companions at his hand (pbuh) without any observable medicine 

There are many, many other examples like these of these miracles and other types of things besides them which have been authenticated and confirmed as being from the Prophet (pbuh).

As such, God the Creator, Whose Existence is testified to by man's unspoiled nature and sound reason is God the Creator, Who called all previous religions (that were revealed to prophets and messengers) to believe in Him and in His Supreme Attributes and Absolute Power. 

3. The Eternal and Infinite Nature of God (Glorious & Exalted) According to His Saying (Noble & Sublime):

{He is the First (nothing is before Him) and the Last (nothing is after Him)}

[Al-Hadid 57: 3]


{He begets not, nor was He begotten}

[Al-Ikhlas 112: 3]. 

And Allah (Mighty & Majestic) created the human being and all other creatures and beings from nothing, according to the Saying of the Most High: 

{Does not man remember that We created him before, while he was nothing?}

[Maryam 19: 67]

{And indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say, "The Almighty, the All-Knower created them."}

[Al-Zukhruf 43: 9]

Indeed, Allah (Glorious & Exalted) was not begotten, and as such, He (Glorious in Stature) is exalted above taking a wife or son.

He (Glorious & Exalted) is the One Who creates from nothing. He creates what He wills, according to what He wants and what He wills, in harmony with His Wisdom (Glorious & Exalted).

So why would He take a son, or more than one, or otherwise, as the liars claim? Surely, Allah (Mighty & Majestic) is to be glorified above such a thing, for He (Noble & Sublime) is the First, and nothing is before Him. 

 It has been confirmed to us through incontrovertible evidence, instinctively, logically, and scientifically, and otherwise, as we have indicated previously.

And if man would look inside his mind at himself as a created being, then he would find his birth to be certain. He would know for sure that he was born, that his parents had been a cause for his existence, that he had once been nothing, that his grandparents had been a cause for the existence of his parents, and so on until he reaches the Existence of the Eternal Creator Who was not born, and Who created man at the beginning of creation from nothing, by His Great and Absolute Power. And so, man ever looks to things and beings around him with the certainty that there must be a cause for their existence, and that, in the beginning, there was nothing, just as he was. Then, it follows that this existence must necessarily have an Eternal Origin uncreated by anything before it. This Maker is the One Who created it—all things and beings—from nothing by the Greatness and Absoluteness of His Power. This Maker is God the Creator, Allah (Glorious & Exalted). 

It can be deduced from all of this that God the Creator must necessarily be Eternal, meaning Living and Everlasting; He does not die, cease to exist, or come to an end. 

Therefore, the certainty of the Eternal Nature of Allah (Glorious & Exalted), by all methods of confirmation and testimony—instinctive, logical, and scientific—is proof and evidence for every intelligent and rational person of the Absolute Power of Allah (Mighty & Majestic). That is,
even though his mind is incapable of comprehending the inner workings of the Absolute Power of Allah (Glorious & Exalted), because man himself is a created being, brought into existence by Allah, the Creator (Noble & Sublime), out of nothingness.

As such, his mind is limited, his abilities are limited, and he is incapable of comprehending that which is above him.  

To draw a simple comparison by way of explanation: 

 Is it possible to put into a small cup of water a quantity equal to two cups of the same size? Of course not.

For, if this small cup of water cannot contain another cup like it, would it be possible for it to contain all that on the earth, from rivers to lakes to oceans, and more of the same pattern to no end?

Surely, the answer is no, it cannot.

This is the likeness of a limited mind. It is like a small cup of water, and it cannot comprehend the inner workings of the Absolute Power of God the Creator (Noble & Sublime).
