Is there a difference between the creation of an atom and the whole universe?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

7.2.2- There is no difference between the creation of an atom and the whole universe

First of all, let us state the fact that the creation of beings in the form of IBDA or INSHA is not different in terms of the power of God Almighty. It is equal for divine power to invent particles out of nothing and to create any being from those particles. That is, one of them is not more difficult or easier than the other.

The creation of beings in the form of IBDA or INSHA is not different in terms of the power of God Almighty. It is equal for divine power to invent particles out of nothing and to create any being from those particles. That is, one of them is not more difficult or easier than the other.

If man, who is in need and poverty all the time and in all circumstances and who cannot meet even a very simple need on his own, assesses this fact based on his weakness and inadequate criteria, he will definitely take the wrong way and be deceived. In the end, he may disbelieve by regarding it irrational. However, according to the judgment “when thinking about the work of a person, it is necessary to consider his attributes”, it is necessary to view the issue  in terms of Allah’s comprehensive attributes and absolute power. Instead of watching the greatness of Allah, who makes this huge universe serve man, in His magnificent works, a person who compares the Divine realities with his own partial mind, power and will fall into great heedlessness.

It is not possible to think that the Creator of everything, who set up the sky like a tent over us, who controls and manages innumerable celestial bodies in the vast space with His power, and who prepared the earth for us with His wonderful works of art, to create beings with “ibda” or “insha” with His power. Besides, if a person believes that Allah has all perfect attributes and attributes weakness to Allah after this belief, he will fall into a contradiction.

The power of God Almighty is from His own essence, is infinite and absolute. There is no difference for His power between creating the sun and creating a particle. He can create, control and manage both of them equally easily. There will be no fragmentation and division in His deed.

The conditions related to the realm of creatures cannot prevent His creation. There is definitely no difference for His power between the creation of things with ibda and insha.

That Great Being, who creates everything with infinitely easily, who manages suns like particles, and who changes everything from state to state, from stage to stage and from attitude to attitude, can easily make something non-existent existent and something existent non-existent with His infinite power.

Yes, it is the most obvious truth that the All-Powerful, who creates innumerable things in a moment, creates particles out of nothing and the other beings from those particles.

Since there is no difference between “ibda” and “insha” in terms of divine power, human mind accepts this fact easily. However, he might seek the wisdom behind creation out of nothing.

We will try to briefly explain the truth of this issue within the framework of the explanations made by our tafsir scholars.
