The Originator; the Innovative Creator

The Originator of the heavens and Earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, “Be!” and it is. (Surat al-Baqara, 2:117)

No matter how competent and intelligent people may be, any innovation or new idea is limited to their background and what they see around themselves. We enjoy five senses and cannot imagine a sixth sense. Moreover, we can use these senses only to a certain extent. For instance, we are utterly ignorant of what we cannot perceive. Accordingly, we cannot think, discover, or exercise our wisdom about something that does not exist on Earth, or in the universe as far as we know it.

Indeed, scientists develop some of their projects by imitating animals in nature and their flawless systems. For example, the dolphin’s snout served as a model for the bows of modern ships, while radar works on the principle used by bats, namely, emitting very high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to compensate for their poor eyesight. Such examples are legion. (For further reference, please see, Harun Yahya, For Men of Understanding , 3rd ed., [ London : Ta-Ha Publishers Ltd., April 2003])

Allah’s knowledge is unbounded. Everything that exists, whether visible or not to the naked eye, is the product of Allah’s innovative creation. At a time when there was nothing, no universe, galaxies, planets, living beings, or even a single cell, He decided to create a flawless system consisting of atoms, molecules, cells, living beings, planets, stars, and galaxies. Upon His command “Be,” the universe and all of its contents came into being based upon no model other than what He willed to be. From the micro-world, of which the humanity became aware after thousands of years, to the celestial bodies discovered during the twentieth century, all of these systems were designed by Allah and function according to His laws. This is related in the Qur’an, as follows:

Say: “My Lord has commanded justice. Stand and face Him in every mosque and call upon Him, making your religion sincerely His. As He originated you, so will you return.” (Surat al-A‘raf, 7:29)

He is the Originator of the heavens and Earth. How could He have a son when He has no wife? He created all things and has knowledge of all things.  (Surat al-An‘am, 6:101)
