Conjecture about the Power of Allah
Surah ‘Al-Hijr – (The Rocky Tract) – 15
‘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)
وَإِن مِّن شَىْءٍ إِلَّا عِندَنَا خَزَآئِنُهُۥ وَمَا نُنَزِّلُهُۥٓ إِلَّا بِقَدَرٍ مَّعْلُومٍ 21
|21. And there is not a thing but with Us are the stores thereof. And We send it not down save in appointed measure.||21. Wa ‘im-min shay-‘in ‘illaa ‘indaNaa khazaaa-‘inuh; wa maa Nunazzi-luhuuu ‘illaa bi-qadarim-ma’-luum.|
It was mentioned in the previous verses that collective arrangement of the both (the earth and the heavens) is a sufficient proof that Allah Almighty, His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and His Word (Holy Qur’aan) are True. In this verse, it has been explained that if you will reflect in any thing of the world, you will conjecture about the Power of Allah Almighty and will understand that no one can create any thing save Allah Almighty. For creation of any thing, too many ingredients are required, collection of which is compulsory. Even one seed of grain cannot be made without collecting different atoms of the matter. Stores of these atoms are safe separately with Allah Almighty. By taking different particles from those different stores in a specific quantity and ratio, it is necessary to gather them at a place. Then hardly one little seed of grain will be produced. It is not in the power of any of the creatures to create a particular thing by collecting these particles in a specific quantity from countless stores and bring them together. Moreover, the thing is changed even by bringing the particles together with different ratio, for example, if we gather double quantity of hydrogen and single quantity of oxygen (H2O), it will become water. Whereas if we gather H2O2 (equal quantity of the both – Hydrogen and Oxygen), then it will become any other thing, peculiarity of which will be quite different from the water.
Particles of many things and their mutual ratio has been known by means of human research, but the mankind has not accepted it so far that He is Creator and Manager of this entire universe; Who brought together these atoms for every thing with a specific ratio. Human being began to invent the things himself by collecting these particles of the matter. To some extent he succeeded in it too; but alas! They did not know the actual Creator.
