4.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] and {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).
