“…despite this, it is not ruined, nor does it falter with the passage of time. How insolent it is for a mere insect to attack the Exalted Being of God and hastily pass the judgement that God does not possess all power…”
“It is unwise to deem the powers and wonders of God to be limited. Man does not even know and comprehend his own intrinsic nature yet passes judgements on matters divine. It is such people to which the following refers:
Have you put in order your earthly matters;
So that you have now turned to heavenly matters?
It is incumbent on man to not interfere in a manner that is beyond his reach. Doctors do not know of the causes and symptoms of many illnesses and diseases. When this is the extent of man’s weakness, does it befit him to pass judgements on matters that are beyond him? Not at all. In fact, servitude to God demands that one remains with those who proclaim:
سبحانك لَا علمَ لَنا
Holy art Thou! No knowledge have we.
One may observe that stars—such vast bodies—are suspended in the sky without any pillars and even the sky itself has been raised without any apparent support for many millennia. Every night, the moon reveals itself in immaculate form. The sun rises every morning and follows a well-timed and proper course. We tend to commit some error or other in our own tasks, but just observe the work of Allah Almighty in that this very sun and moon follow their course without fail. If one ponders on these matters daily, in that the sun rises according to a fixed routine day in and day out, and gives us a sense of direction, one is confounded. We go through a multitude of varying states, but the sun does not. If a person were to purchase a watch for 2,000 rupees and at 12 o’clock it showed the time to be 10 o’clock for example, or vice versa, it would be deemed worthless and faulty. But the watch of God Almighty is such that it does not move off course even slightly; it neither requires a key, nor cleaning. Can anyone enumerate the powers of such a Creator? Man is astonished when he observes that his possessions, clothes, vessels, etc., which remain in constant use eventually begin to wear in. Children grow to adolescence and then die in old age. However, the sun that rose the day before, is still the very same sun we see today. It has carried through as such for countless ages and shall continue as such. However, despite this, it is not ruined, nor does it falter with the passage of time. How insolent it is for a mere insect to attack the Exalted Being of God and hastily pass the judgement that God does not possess all power”.
