People who contemplate their surroundings conscientiously and wisely
realise that everything in the universe-both living and non-living-must have been created.
So the question becomes that of "Who is the creator of all these things?"
It is evident that "the fact of creation", which
reveals itself in every aspect of the universe, cannot be an outcome of the universe
itself. For example, a bug could not have created itself. The solar system could not have
created or organised itself. Neither plants, humans, bacteria, erythrocytes (red-blood
corpuscles), nor butterflies could have created themselves. The possibility that these all
could have originated "by chance" is not even imaginable.
We therefore arrive at the following conclusion: Everything that we see
has been created. But nothing that we see can be "creators" themselves. The
Creator is different from and superior to all that we see with our eyes, a superior power
that is invisible but whose existence and attributes are revealed in everything that
This is the point at which those who deny the existence of Allah demur.
These people are conditioned not to believe in His existence unless they see Him with
their eyes. These people, who disregard the fact of "creation", are forced to
ignore the actuality of "creation" manifested all throughout the universe and
falsely prove that the universe and the living things in it have not been created.
Evolutionary theory is a key example of their vain endeavours to this end.
The basic mistake of those who deny Allah is shared by many people who
in fact do not really deny the existence of Allah but have a wrong perception of Him. They
do not deny creation, but have superstitious beliefs about "where" Allah is.
Most of them think that Allah is up in the "sky". They tacitly imagine that
Allah is behind a very distant planet and interferes with "worldly affairs" only
once in a while. Or perhaps that He does not intervene at all: He created the universe and
then left it to itself and people are left to determine their fates for themselves.
Still others have heard that in the Quran it is
written that Allah is "everywhere" but they cannot perceive what this exactly
means. They tacitly think that Allah surrounds everything like radio waves or like an
invisible, intangible gas.
However, this notion and other beliefs that are unable to make clear
"where" Allah is (and maybe deny Him because of that) are all based on a common
mistake. They hold a prejudice without any grounds and then are moved to wrong opinions of
Allah. What is this prejudice?
