Everything in the universe is by His creation
« on: June 16, 2023, 06:03:48 PM »
The ships that sail in the sea like high mountains are among His signs. If He willed, He could stop the wind, so that they would remain on it. Verily, in this are indeed signs for him who is patient and thankful (Surah 42: Shura, 32-33).

The message of the verse is clear. If we can do something in this life, or if something happens, there is a reason for it. If that which makes it happen is removed, then that work-occurrence also ceases to exist.

Nowadays, whether the ships are powered by solar energy or not. Again nothing changes. This time, if the sun's light is stopped, if the sunlight doesn't reach our world, our ship is left stranded.

Or if the ship moves with oars, if the laws of physics that enable movement in this way are eliminated, the ship will be immobilized.

Of course, what is described here applies to all areas of life. Or if one of the elements necessary for life to continue is removed, there is no life on our planet. If the laws of physics that keep an airplane or a bird in the air are removed, they cannot fly.

Surah Nahl: 79 Have they not looked at the birds in the void of the sky, subjugated to a command? None holds them except Allah. Surely in this are traces-signs for a people who believe.

In short, the "sailing ship" in Surat al-Shura refers to both "the sailing ship", "all other technological means", and "all the things we do or have done" in our lives.

By giving a small part of the whole, the whole is brought into view.


42. And We have created for them other things like ships that they may ride on.

Everything that we think we do or that we think happens spontaneously can actually happen through the order that Allah has created and/or other things that He has created. Or, in other words, they are directly realized and created by our Lord.

Surah Vakia

62. And certainly you know your first creation. Then why do you think!

63. What about the seed you sow!

64. Do you bring it to completion, or is it We who bring it to completion?

65. And if We had willed, We could have made it a dry stubble, and you would have been babbling in confusion:

66. "Surely we are much in loss!"

67. "Indeed we are utterly deprived!"

68. And what about the water you drank!

69. Did you send it down from the cloud, or did We send it down?

70. And if We had willed, We could have made it bitter water, so be thankful!

71. What about the fire which you kindled!

72. Did you create its tree, or did We create it?

73. We have made it a sign and a source of benefit for those who dwell in desolate places.

74. So glorify the name of your Lord, the Exalted.

75, 76. I swear by the places of the stars - this is indeed a great oath, if you know

Another example similar to the immobilization of ships is given for human beings in Surah Al-Baqarah:

20. The lightning will almost strike away their eyes, and whenever He gives them light, they walk in it, and when darkness falls upon them, they are immobilized, and if Allah had willed, He would certainly have taken away their hearing and their eyes, for Allah is All-Powerful.

21. O mankind, worship your Lord, Who created you and those before you, so that you may be protected.

22. And He has made for you the earth as a mattress and the heavens as a building, and He has sent down water from the sky, and with it He has brought forth for you a sustenance of fruits and crops, so do not associate partners with Allah while you know.

We are able to realize what is called science and technology thanks to the laws of physics established by Allah and the wisdom and knowledge He has given us.

In short, both natural and technological blessings are all the work of Allah. Past, present and future...

Surah Nahl: 8 He has created horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and as an ornament. And He creates what else you do not know.

Surat al-Nahl 81 Allah has created for you shade from what He has created. He has made for you houses of shelter from the mountains. He has also made for you garments to protect you from the heat and garments to protect you in battle. This is how He completes His blessing upon you, so that you may submit to Him and attain peace.

It was already programmed in our destiny that people will discover and use what and when.

In fact, all this is for us to face ourselves in our 2-day test life, to see what we deserve in the Hereafter, and to taste some small rewards or punishments in this world:

Surah Al-Jaziya 22 And Allah created the heavens and the earth in truth. So that every soul may be brought face to face with what it has earned, without anyone being wronged.

Surah Najm: 31 Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth belongs to Allah. This is so that Allah may punish those who do evil by their deeds and reward those who do good and think well.

Allah's continuous creation of things over and over again is perceived by humans as if it were a mechanical order that occurs spontaneously, when in fact it is the direct creation of Allah:

Surat al-Naml 64 Or is He better who begins to create and then creates again and again, and watches over you and provides for you from the earth? Is there a god besides Allah? Say: "Bring your evidence, if you are truthful."

Surat al-Ankabut 19 Have they not seen how Allah begins creation, then repeats it again and again? Surely this is easy for Allah.

Surat al-Qamar 3 They denied and followed their own desires and delusions. However, every work and occurrence is determined, measured and ordered.

But at the same time, our Lord shows with examples that this is not a spontaneous and unchangeable order, that He can create in different ways if He wishes, that is, He can change the laws He has established, and that these orders even come into existence later.

For example, he shows with evidence that he does not need mother+father=birth, i.e. sexual intercourse, to create:

Surah Ali Imran 59 The case of Jesus in the sight of Allah is like the case of Adam: He created him from dust, then He said to him, "Be," and he became. (Jesus, like Adam, was created without sexuality, one without a father, the other without both a father and a mother, their situations are similar)

Again an example of direct (ancestorless) creation:

Surah Al-Ma'idah 110 And Allah said: "O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favor upon you and your mother. I had supported you with the Spirit of the Holy Spirit, and you were speaking to the people in the cradle and in the age of maturity. I taught you the Book, wisdom, the Torah and the Gospel, and by My permission you created out of clay something like a bird, and you breathed into it, and it became a bird by My permission. By my permission you healed the blind and the blind from birth. You raised the dead by my permission. I kept the Children of Israel away from you. Remember when you brought them clear signs, and those who disbelieved said: "This is nothing but clear magic."

Apart from this, the verses stating that in the hereafter human beings are created directly from the earth, and that the universe was created out of nothing, also describe this situation beautifully.
