Inventor and Founder of the entire universe
Surah ‘Ibraahiim (Abraham) – 14
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
قَالَتْ رُسُلُهُمْ أَفِى ٱللَّهِ شَكٌّ فَاطِرِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ يَدْعُوكُمْ لِيَغْفِرَ لَكُم مِّن ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُؤَخِّرَكُمْ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍمُّسَمًّى قَالُوٓا۟ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا تُرِيدُونَ أَن تَصُدُّونَا عَمَّا كَانَ يَعْبُدُ ءَابَآؤُنَا فَأْتُونَا بِسُلْطَٰنٍ مُّبِينٍ 10
|10a. Their messengers said: Can there be doubt concerning Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He calleth you that He may forgive you your sins and reprieve you unto an appointed term.||(Part Three – Fourth)
10a. Qaalat rusuluhum ‘aFillaahi shakkun Faatiris-samaa-waati wal-‘arz. Yad-‘uukum li-yagfira-lakum-min- zunuubi-kum wa yu-‘akh-khira-kum ‘ilaaa ‘ajalim-musammaa.
Faatiri – (The Creator), it is the subject, origin of which is fatara. Fatara means “to create at own; any such new thing, sample of which does not exist anywhere”. In accordance with meanings, a word Badii’ is close to Faatir, which means “Inventor, Founder”. Explanation of this word has passed in Suratul ‘An-‘aam.
Messengers (peace be upon them) replied: We call you unto Allah Almighty. Can any intelligent human being doubt concerning Allah (God) Almighty? Many such things which have no example; are created by Him and those exist in front of our eyes i.e. the sky, the moon, the sun, the stars and the earth. All of them have been running according to a system.
We have been drawing your attention unto That Allah Almighty; Revelations of Whose Divine Power have been spreading all around of you. In the presence of such Signs, there is no room of doubt in the hearts of those who think; about their Creator. We are not inviting you, but Allah Almighty, Who created you, has been inviting you unto Himself. Listen to Him. If you will obey His commandment, He will forgive your errors with His kindness, which you committed due to carelessness. And when you will believe in Him then He will give you chance to do good works.
