What is the first thing that Allah created?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Allah Almighty created the father of mankind, Adam (PBUH). When Adam raised his head, he saw that some name was written with an enormous Nur (heavenly light) at the Great Throne: “Ahmad.” He asked wondering:

“O my Lord, what is that light?”

Allah Almighty replied:

It is the light of a prophet who is going to come from your offspring. His name is Ahmad up in the heaven and Muhammad on earth. If it hadn’t been for him, I wouldn’t have created you as well!(Qastalani, Mawahib al-Ladunniyya: 1/6)

The enormous truth that we faithfully adhere was also proclaimed by the owner of the light after billions of years.

One day, one of the Companions, Abdullah bin Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) asked,

“Oh Allah’s Messenger, will you explain what Allah created before everything else”? He replied:

"Before everything, He created your Messenger’s noor (light) from His own light. The light would travel with Allah’s power and as it wished. At that time, there was no lawh mahfuz (preserved tablet), no pen, no Heaven, no Hell, no angel, no sky, no land, no sun, no moon, no person, and no jinn." (Qastalani, Mawahib al-Ladunniyya:1/7)

Firstly, the Light that enlightened the heavens with all its grandeur secondly shone in the forehead of Adam (PBUH). Then, from one prophet to another, It came to Abraham (PBUH) and through him to his son Ismael (PBUH).
