Existence of God

Humans are superior creation of God, provided with the knowledge and strength to discover and invent. When we see the entire universe we are forced to believe in its existence. Now the question is when and how did it come into being? Explaining its existence as the creation of God is no final answer, so it is generally held--since the very next question which arises is if God made the universe, then who made God?

Well the idea of the creation of universe and the concept of God is mentioned in the Qur’an and by thorough Quran Recitation and understanding we come to know that there is one God who created the universe and every other thing.

Sometimes it is argued that belief must rest on proof. But, from the purely scientific standpoint, nothing in this world can be proved or disproved. So far as believing in anything is concerned, the option is not between the proved and the unproved, but between the workable and the non-workable.

What Islamic school of thought says is that the universe itself does not have the ability to create. It can neither increase nor decrease itself by so much as a particle. As with all other scientific concepts, we must choose not between the universe with God and the universe without God, but between God and a non-existent universe. Since a non-existent universe is unconceivable, we must perforce opt for the concept of the universe with God.
