God is The Creator.
In the Name of God, The Most Merciful, The Ever Merciful to His believing servants.
All praise belongs to God, may He extol His Messenger in the highest company of the Angels and grant him peace, his family, companions and those who follow them until the Day of Judgement.
As for what proceeds,
There are two things in existence.
The Creator, and what He created.
They are two separate things with no likeness to each other.
God, He is The Creator.
He is The First — none came before Him.
He is the Last, none will come after Him.
He is The Ever-Living, with Perfect Life, not proceeded by death nor will it be followed with it.
The things He created, however, are different.
They are dependent upon and provided for by God.
He created them whenever and however He willed.
They are completely dependant upon Him and they never leave His Ownership or Control.
They only act with what He willed and brought into existence by the ways and means He decreed.
There is no movement except by His Permission.
Though people have taken gods (things they worship) from the things He created, He is The True God, The Only One Deserving of Worship.
How can we turn to others besides Him, when He created and controls everything and we cannot move except by His Permission?
God is the Originator of Everything, its Owner, and Provider.
Who Created the God?
“Who created the God?” — then, may mean two different questions.
Who created The True God? — meaning: God — which is a false and illegitimate question.
“Who created the god” — meaning some created thing which people have wrongly started to worship.
Who Created God?
God is the Creator.
If He had a creator, he would be created and not The Creator.
“Who created God” is a false question.
What you are really saying is: who created The Creator.
But look, to say this question you are saying that God is The Creator (meaning, not created and He is The Creator of all things)!
The reality is that this question is something put out by the enemies of God.
The two categories of people who fall into this are 1. Arrogant people with worldly desires and 2. Those who have been misled by the first group.
As for the arrogant misleaders — they have evil desires for the world which they wanted to justify — so they went looking for excuses to not submit to God.
This is the reality of atheism and materialist religions.
They did not come about by reflecting upon the sky and the earth and everything in between them.
They came about first by evil desires, then searching, looking for excuses to justify what they really want.
See, with reflection upon creation we know innately that God, He is The Only Creator.
If you were to poke a child in their back, what would they do?
If they are of sound health — they will look to see who did it.
Because it is something built into humans that they know for every action there is a cause.
And the atheists admit this, but they don’t tell anyone.
See, science is based upon underlying assumptions which atheists don’t tell you.
They all assume that everything around them is:
Real, material, orderly, designed, consistent, observable, that causes are tied to effects and rational.
Now, that’s a lot of structure and design for this so-called “random existence” atheists lie about!
They are admitting that there are clear rules in the creation, for example: that every cause they are observing has an effect and for every phenomenon there was a cause.
But wait, who is enforcing all of this clear structure?
We know that if we put our hand in the fire, it will burn.
And that water removes thirst.
But who has tied causes to effects?
Who created the god?
If by this question it is intended — “Who created that created thing which people are wrongly worshipping?”
(Whether it be a tree or a grave, or the person in it, or a prophet or an angel).
Then the answer is the same — God, The Creator!
And in this is sufficient refutation of what the people may be upon,
Because upon the simplest of reflection, we know that what they are doing is false.
Ask those who worship things that God created, “Who created this god?”
They must say “God”,
Or perhaps they have been misled into believing that something can come into existence without a creator.
You are journeying through a desert.
There is only sand, as far as the eye can see.
A time later you come upon a great mansion.
Made of marble and silver and long, shiny windows.
Gardens surrounding it and a well for drawing water.
If I told you this created itself, would you believe me?
A house (big or not) doesn’t have the knowledge, ability, will and wisdom to create anything!
We know, just by reflection, that something separate from the house created it.
Then what is harder to create, a house — or the sky, the earth and everything in it.
All the animals, trees, plants, clouds, bicycles, cars and houses and whatever is besides that.
Obviously this is harder.
And the sky doesn’t have the knowledge to create itself.
So there must be a creator outside of it with the Knowledge, Will, Power and Wisdom to create it.
And He is God, The Most High.
Now as for what people might have fallen into worshipping — then if they still can’t see how it is created (because their reasoning has become corrupted), then tie everything together for them –
“You see this person who you are worshipping, they used to be a drop of sperm. If they stop eating food they will die, stop drinking - they will die and breathing also,
How can this be your lord, since they are weak and incapable and completely controlled by another?
The Only True God is the One Who created everything and is controlling and regulating the affairs, and He is God, The Mighty and Majestic.”
Look to the statement of Abraham, the intimate friend of God, which God, The Perfect and Most High, has related to us in The Qur’an:
فَلَمَّا جَنَّ عَلَيْهِ ٱلَّيْلُ رَءَا كَوْكَبًا قَالَ هَٰذَا رَبِّى فَلَمَّآ أَفَلَ قَالَ لَآ أُحِبُّ ٱلْءَافِلِينَ
“So when the night covered him with darkness, he saw a star. He said, “This is my lord.” But when it set, he said, “I like not those that set”The Noble Qur’an 6:76
Meaning: can this be my lord?
Abraham was saying this to help his people realise the truth — that created subjected beings are not worthy of worship. See below!
فَلَمَّا رَءَا ٱلْقَمَرَ بَازِغًا قَالَ هَٰذَا رَبِّى فَلَمَّآ أَفَلَ قَالَ لَئِن لَّمْ يَهْدِنِى رَبِّى لَأَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلضَّآلِّينَ
And when he saw the moon rising up, he said, “This is my lord.” But when it set, he said, “Unless my Lord guides me, I will surely be among the people gone astray.”The Noble Qur’an 6:77
Meaning again, “can this be my lord?” Demonstrating to the people the foolishness they were upon.
فَلَمَّا رَءَا ٱلشَّمْسَ بَازِغَةً قَالَ هَٰذَا رَبِّى هَٰذَآ أَكْبَرُ فَلَمَّآ أَفَلَتْ قَالَ يَٰقَوْمِ إِنِّى بَرِىٓءٌ مِّمَّا تُشْرِكُونَ
And when he saw the sun rising, he said, “This is my lord; this is greater.” But when it set, he said, “O my people, indeed I am free from what you join as partners in worship with God.
إِنِّى وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِىَ لِلَّذِى فَطَرَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ حَنِيفًا وَمَآ أَنَا۠ مِنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ
Indeed I have turned my face towards He Who created the heavens and the earth, inclining towards truth and I am not of the polytheists.”
وَحَآجَّهُۥ قَوْمُهُۥ قَالَ أَتُحَٰٓجُّوٓنِّى فِى ٱللَّهِ وَقَدْ هَدَىٰنِ وَلَآ أَخَافُ مَا تُشْرِكُونَ بِهِۦٓ إِلَّآ أَن يَشَآءَ رَبِّى شَيْـًٔا وَسِعَ رَبِّى كُلَّ شَىْءٍ عِلْمًا أَفَلَا تَتَذَكَّرُونَ
And his people argued with him. He said, “Do you argue with me concerning God while He has guided me? And I fear not what you associate with Him [nothing can happen to me] except when my Lord wills something. My Lord encompasses all things in Knowledge. Will you not then remember?”The Noble Qur’an, 6:78–80
And the reality is that The All Knowing, All Wise, All Able Creator has sent prophets and messengers to mankind to inform them of Him and to call them back to what they are most in need of –
Singling Him out in worship, submitting to Him completely — and this is the foundation of every good.
Can they be equal, the one who God has guided, who commands the people with what is best for them and prohibits them from what is harmful to them,
And the one whose deeds are fruitless, like one who is blind and death and cannot understand?
If there is one who still cannot see reason, see that this create dbeing they are submitting themselves to is powerless – perhaps they see that they are there intercessors with God (like the Christians say about the Prophet Jesus, then say:
“Are they more hearing than God, or more merciful, or more able to answer your prayers?”
And if they say they are God then say:
“Bring your proof if you are from the truthful.”
All praise belongs to God, The Lord of The Worlds, May He extol our Messenger Muhammad in the highest company of the Angels and grant him peace, his family and companions altogether.
