Muslims believe in the Supremacy of Allah Almighty and believe that He is the creator and sustainer of this world, and all that happens in this world is according to His will and knowledge. This believe in supremacy of Allah Almighty comes natural to Muslims.
On the other hand, there are non-Muslims and skeptic Muslims who are always looking for answers, and want to know and factually prove the existence of Allah Almighty and the titles of Him being the sustainer and Creator of this world. The lines below give the proofs of Allah Almighty by relating the world with its mentions in Quran and what science proves it now.
Allah Almighty clearly says in Quran about the creation of this world in the following words:
“‘Be’ and it is” (Yasin: 82)
This ayah shows that Allah Almighty created this universe out of just a single command. He said it to ‘Be’ and it was created instantly. Moreover, to emphasize on Him being the creator of this world, Allah Almighty further says in Quran to the non-believers:
“Have not the unbelievers ever considered that the skies and the earth were once one mass, and then We split them asunder? And We have created every living thing from water. Will they not believer? (Al-Ambiya 30)
This ayah shows that all this earth and the sky were once together and Allah Almighty separated them in to their present condition. The science now proves the fact that there was some kind of a big bang and that everything was once one, after the bang it all separated and came to be as it is now.
Moreover, Allah Almighty has decorated this earth with all the amenities for the betterment of humankind. Allah Almighty says in Quran:
“Allah has made the earth for you as a wide expanse so that you may walk in its spacious paths.” (Surah Nuh: 19-20)
Allah Almighty has furnished the earth with plants, animals, rivers, in order to establish an ecosystem. Moreover, with all the gases Allah Almighty has created an atmosphere which makes life possible and easy for the humans. Science now proves that the atmosphere of earth is self-sustaining and close into which nothing enters nor does anything escape from it.
Adding to this ayah, Allah Almighty further tells about the creation of this world by saying:
“He is the One Who has made the earth a cradle for you, traced the roads on it for you to walk on: and sends down from the sky with which we produce pairs of various kinds of vegetation.” (Surah Ta-Ha: 53)
This ayah is evident of the fact that Allah Almighty is the creator and He is the one who supports and sustains life in this world.
Further in Quran Allah Almighty gives prove of Him being the creator of the world and describes the whole water cycle. By saying:
“We send the winds fertilizing (to fill heavily the clouds with water), then cause the water to descend from the sky, and we give it to you to drink, and it is not you who hold the storage of this wealth (water). (Surah Al-Hijr: 22)
In this ayah, Allah Almighty gives the whole water cycle, which science was able to prove centuries later after the verse was revealed. Thus, the verse proves the truth about the Creator and Sustainer.
Allah Almighty further enunciates His being Creator, Provider and Sustainer of this world in the following words:
“Let man reflect on the food he eats. We pour down rainwater in abundance and cleave the soil asunder. We bring forth grain, grapes, and nutritious vegetation, olives and dates, lush gardens, fruits, and fodders as a means of sustenance for you and your cattle.” (Surah Abasa: 24-32)
Concluding, it can be said that each and every verse of Quran points towards the fact that Allah Almighty is the sole creator, provider and sustainer of this world. Everything goes according to His will and the instructions He has given to it. Moreover, if a skeptic person analyzes the verses of Quran, he or she will definitely reach the conclusion that Allah is the Only God and there is no God but Him.
