What are the proofs of Gods existence?
Proving somethings existence is lot easier than proving the non-existence of something. We can prove an apple breeds existence with a simple demonstration just by showing its location on earth. However, someone who claims non-existence of something can only prove it by looking everywhere on earth and in the universe. And this is impossible. So we can say, non-existence cannot be proved.
No one can claim that it is impossible to enter a palace, which has 999 open doors and 1 close. A denier constantly considers that one closed door. In fact, even that door is closed only for his /her spiritual world, which was once closed there is no closed door for the believer. He/she would better not close his/her eyes just so. Actually, 999 doors are open or even wide open for everyone. Let us present the door and several proofs.
Possibility Proof: Possibility has equal relation with existence and non-existence. Something may exist; it may not exist. In our daily conversations, we use that word for which something can or cannot happen. All of the created bears this reality, My existence and non-existence were equal (before I was created). If I do exist, it is because of the One who chooses my existence to my non-existence. And that can be only God.
Hudus (Created Later) Proof: Hudus means created later. The biggest proof of Hudus is change. If there is change in creation, there should be an initial point (cause) of this motion. Before that initial point (cause), the creation was not in the field of existence. If you are still in non-existence, you are incapable of being or not being, Later existence should be Gods creation. According to thermodynamics law, incidents such as matters constantly drifting towards non-existence, cosmos (its magnetic field) constantly getting larger, suns wearing out its energy demonstrate that the realm of existence has a beginning.
Art Proof: From an atom to a human, from a cell to galaxies, there is a vertiginous art that parades in the Universe. Every creation in the Universe have the below listed qualities.
- It has a value of the great work of arts
- It is very precious
- It is done easily in a short time
- It could be in great numbers
- It is convolute and has varieties
- It is constant,
whereas things, which are done easily in a short time and which are convoluted and many should not be considered as work of art or cannot be precious. However, if the maker is God things change and complete opposites can come together.
Impossibility of circular motion and Teselsul (Chain Events) it is impossible without the existence of first cause: Impossibility of Circular motion is defined with the example; you ask a question to a man who claims that the maker of an egg is a chicken as, Who did make the chicken? The answer is, Egg. According to this claim, we should eliminate the chicken in this process. Therefore, the maker of an egg is another egg, which is impossible. Teselsul (Chain events) on the other hand is a method of proving the existence of God by tracing a thing back to its first cause of (creation). That is to say, this fruit was bared by that tree, that tree was grown from a prior seed of a fruit, and that was bared by a prior tree Thereby, we ask to the first tree or to the first fruit,Who did create this? as of our right!
The way of Quran is far different from Circular motion, and Teselsul (chaining events). For the questions such as, Who did the egg? or Who did the fruit? the answer is directly God created. It is proven that the causes (chicken, tree) that have no share in science, will, compassion, and mercy; and also that have no possibility to understand what human, wisdom and art are, would have no impact for the creation of the consequences. Thereby, Circular motion and Teselsul (Chaining events) proofs are not needed.
Wisdom and Purpose Proof: There is a proper purpose and usefulness in every creation. It is not observed any purposelessness, meaninglessness or anything, which is considered waste. However, neither in the realm of matter nor in the world of plants and animals and nor objects and incidents have the conscious to follow this chain of purposes. If that is so, the only reasonable way is to adhere the conscious functioning of the Universe, wisdom and purposes to God.
Solidarity Proof: From rain is to gallop to the rescue of earth, from sun is to come to the help of eyes; to the air is to clean the blood, this universe is with full of solidarity. None of these that are helping each other is aware of their existence. Therefore, causes cannot be the maker of these incidents.
Cleanliness Proof: Cleanliness and purity in the Universe as an independent proof tells us about God who is also called as Al-Quddus (The Holy, The One who is pure from any imperfection). The bacteria, bugs, ants, and many raptors that clean the earth; wind, rain, snow; icebergs and fishes in the oceans; atmosphere in the sky; black holes in the heaven; oxygen that cleans blood in our bodies and spiritual breathings that ease distresses in our souls, all announce the name Al-Quddus and manifest the God Himself beyond that name.
Face (Visage) Proof: Any humans face down to the smallest details does not bear any resemblance to billions of people, who have ever lived before him/her. This rule is valid for the people who will ever come after him/her. Face proof is a mighty announcement that introduces God (who knows His creation down to the smallest details and who has power to shape His creation how ever He wishes, who can draw billions of pictures as identical for one view and different from each other for another view and distinguish those which have possibility of looking alike from among billions of pictures and put things in order out of infinite possibilities) to the deafest ears.
Creation and Conscience Proof: There are uncountable proofs and signs in the creation and in the inborn characteristics of a human. For to give a case to a point; the inborn characteristics and the human conscience know that every blessing it receives, requires gratitude. If he/she had ever received a prophet or had found the way of God, he/she expresses gratitude to God. Otherwise, he/she would worship to fallacious deities. This worshipping becomes true by the urging of human conscience. The feeling of appreciation also exists in the human nature. Shows, exhibitions take place because of that feeling. Humans as in accordance with their inhered creation, are in the state of expressing gratitude to the stars parade on the sky, to the flowers and trees show off on the ground, to the gazelles and lions in the forests, to the fishes in the oceans and are in the state of expressing gratitude to the divine arts perfection demonstrated on them (by God).
History as a Proof: (The history of religions be witness), humanity have never had an age without a religion. They were sometimes fallacious and even absurd, but they have never left to follow a spiritual system. This need is inhered to the creation of human by God and human is responsible to believe in it.
Quran as a Proof: Every reason that proves that Quran is the word of Gods also proves Gods existence. There are hundreds of evidences and these are all available down to the smallest detail in the related Islamic sources. In addition, these proofs spell as, God exist peculiar to their language.
Prophets as a Proof: Every reason that proves the existence of Prophets and especially of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) (master of the two realms), have to be added to the reasons that proves Gods existence. For the reason of Prophets existence announces Tawheed (Unification, Oneness of God). If that is so, every reason that proves the prophets prophethood, proves the existence of Gods existence at the same time. Every reason that proves their being True Prophet declares that God exists and One with the same amount of enforcement or even lot more.
