Allah Almighty Is The Creator of Everything
For a Muslim it is imperative to believe in the Supremacy of Allah Almighty. He is the Creator and the Lord, therefore, whatever a Muslim wants or a Muslim desires comes from Allah Almighty. Hence, it is vital that a Muslim must recognize His Authority and turn to Him in all the needs.
In Quran, Allah Almighty has clearly stated His authority and mentions it time and again that everything and every bounty of the world is from Him and He ought to be invoked for everything. The lines below discuss the Supremacy of Allah Almighty and the element of freewill presented in Islam.
In Quran, Allah Almighty says:
“….Allah is the creator of everything….” (13:16)
From this ayah of Quran it is imperative that Allah Almighty Himself takes the title of the Creator, thus, whatever a person sees in this world, whether it’s the galaxies, the stars, the planets, the earth, the organisms living in this earth, all the natural surroundings and inhabitant and even the best marvel of all – man is the creation of Allah Almighty. Therefore, every Muslim shares the belief that it is Allah Who has created everything.
A Muslim would consider the making of all the natural things and all the natural phenomenon that occur a blessing from Allah Almighty, however, the skeptic mind would ask that although Allah has created whatever is natural, and what about the things created by man? Quran also answers to this question of people in the following way:
“And God created you and what you make” (37:96)
This hadith clearly explains that although the natural things are created by Allah, however, the man made things are also a part of His creation. It is He who has created man and provided him with all the idea and intellect required to create something. If it were not for Allah Almighty He would not have provided the intellect to people that make them think about things and perceive an idea. If it weren’t for Allah Almighty there would not have been situations that trigger the need for finding a solution for something and thus creating something. Hence, Allah Almighty is the Creator and all the creation whether it is directly natural or an indirect one in the form of man creating them is concerned, it all is from Allah.
At another place in Quran, Allah Almighty says:
“And they contrived, and God contrived, but God is the greatest of contrivers.” (3:54)
From this ayah the message becomes clear for all those who think that they can outdo God or have done the creation of God by creating something of their own are plainly wrong. Rather, all what is undertaken by man is watched over by Allah Almighty and there is none who can contrive better than Him. If there were any better contrivers they would have altered the universe and would have caused a drastically change in whatever is present.
In a nutshell, Allah Almighty is the Creator and whatever is in this world either natural or manmade is a form of creation of Allah Almighty and there can be no denying His craftsmanship.
