Creation of The Universe

Existence of God
April 15, 2019

When we build a house it is ensured that foundations of pillars and walls should be strong enough to bear the weight of the roof. However, we are quite amazed when we see that sky over our head is there without any support. Is it not strange? This universe with its heavens, earth, stars, galaxies, seas and all living things are created from non-existence by God and they occupy their position firmly. The Holy Quran says:

        “Say (O Muhammad): Do you verily disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two days and you set up rivals (in worship) with Him? That is Lord of the worlds. He placed therein (i.e., the earth) firm mountains from above it, and He blessed it, and measured therein its sustenance (for its dwellers) in four days equal (i.e., all these four ‘days’ are equal in the length of time) for all those who ask about (its creation). Then He rose over towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth, ‘Come both of you willingly.’ Then He completed and finished from the creation (as) seven heavens in two days and He made in each heaven its affair. And We adorned the nearest (lowest) heaven with lamps (stars) to be an adornment as well as to guard (from the devils by using them as missiles against them). Such is the decree of Him the All-Mighty, the All-Knower.”

        He also says,

        “Have not those who disbelieve know that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe? And We have placed on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with them, and We placed therein broad highways for them to pass through, that they may be guided. And We have made heaven a roof, safe and well-guarded. Yet, they turn away from its signs.”

        Each and everything on the earth make us believe that there is a heavenly power which has created them. All these things are the greatest sign of the creator. n
