“…astonishing is the fact that because the sun and moon have the powerful attraction of gravity, they are at such a massive distance from one another so that they do not collide. Does not all of this show that the universe emerged from a creator who is not only all-knowing but possesses infinite knowledge?”
(continued from yesterday)
“It could be assumed that chance resulted in the creation of our eyes, but how formidable the likelihood of a sun coming into existence millions of miles away to enable them to function properly. Chance may have given birth to our ears, but what power created sound for them to hear; we may accept that dogs and bears randomly came to be found in snow-capped countries, but how did they come to possess such long hair that it protected them from the cold; if chance gave birth to thousands of afflictions, it also gave birth to the requisite cures; chance created stinging nettles which at a touch cause itchiness and it also created spinach as a remedy.
“The random chance of atheists is a peculiar thing indeed. It provided for the birth and regeneration of those things that were destined to die, but did not fasten a regenerative cycle to those things that do not meet with [a quick] death. If human beings did not die after their birth, the world would soon have come to an end, hence why death is inextricably attached to them. Whereas celestial bodies like suns, moons and planets do not have a life cycle. No less astonishing is the fact that because the sun and moon have the powerful attraction of gravity, they are at such a massive distance from one another so that they do not collide. Does not all of this show that the universe emerged from a creator who is not only all-knowing but possesses infinite knowledge? His laws are so perfect, they do not contain any sort of contradiction or incongruity. Even my own fingers appear to me as a proof of His existence.
“If, with the knowledge that has been extended to me, I had been given the claws of a lion, I would never have been able to write. God gave claws to lions instead of knowledge, just as He gave me knowledge and the fingers with which to record it. Countless experts and scholars are employed day and night to help improve the governance of nations, yet occasionally they commit such grievous errors that they cause great damage to the state and sometimes bring about its destruction. However, if we accept the workings of the universe emerged from chance alone, it is peculiar to think that thousands of intelligent minds make mistakes, but chance succeeds without fail.
“The truth is: there is a creator of this universe who is a master (Malak) over its entire extent and magnitude. He is mighty. Were it not so, such purpose and design would never have been apparent. As the Holy Qur’an says, cast your eyes in every direction and it will become fatigued [from the search]; an order will be manifest in everything. The virtuous are conferred their reward while the wicked receive their punishment. Everything within the universe functions according to its allocated task and does not desist for a moment. This is an extensive subject but I will end the discussion here. For those who have been given wisdom, a simple hint should suffice.”
