"Tell me about this nature and the beauty you
see in it, do you think is it self- sustained? -- What you see as nature is the Creator, the Originator, the Shaper, what
you see Is Allah, so why do you call Him nature?
If, on the other hand, the adversary says: "Nature is an
abstract quality, a display in need of an agent, and all that we witness of its accomplishments is brought about without nature
having knowledge, will, ability, or even the mere consciousness of what it is producing. All that we see is evidence of nature's
Then the reply should be that no sane person would accept this reasoning. Do you really believe that
the amazing actions and beauties that we see in this world, that no mind can fathom or fully appreciate, are made by an agent
that itself has no thinking, ability, wisdom or feeling? Would anyone believe such reasoning but a madman or an animal?
the reply should be: "If what you claim were true, I would be clear that such an abstract quality cannot have created itself
or originated itself, so who is its Lord, Maker and Originator? Who enabled it to do all that? This logic is a most decisive
piece of evidence in favor of believing in the Originator and Maker of nature, believing in Allah and in the infinity of His
ability, knowledge and wisdom.
Nothing can create itself', nature itself would discredit such logic: it in fact contradicts
mind, innate intuition. For it is not possible to have wise effects without the agency of a wise, able and knowing entity;
that it is not possible to have well-controlled effects without here being a maker who is able, in control of things.
you accept the necessity of the great Creator (Allah), beside whom no other god exists, and no other lord, stop calling Him
nature or the 'self- active mind' or such appellations. Say instead: What I describe is Allah, the Creator of everything,
the Originator of the world, the Shaper, Lord of the Worlds, Sustainer of the heavens and the earth, Lord of the east and
the west, He created, and perfected what He crafted. Do not deny His Names and Attributes and Self, and attribute His making
to another and His creation to someone else.
You have to concede His existence, and attribute to Him authorship, creation,
lordship and control. There is no other way, praised is Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
Allah's ability and evidence of
creating the world is made more manifest within this verse, as Allah says:
Allah is the One who sends the winds
like heralds of His Mercy. When they have carried the heavy laden clouds, We drive them to a land that is dead. Then We cause
water to descend, and with it bring forth fruits of every kind. So shall We raise up the dead, that you may be admonished.
