What is the wisdom behind the atoms to be used up to the Day of Judgment being prepared beforehand?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

7.2.6- The atoms to be used up to the Day of Judgment were prepared beforehand

Yes, Allah Almighty, who set a boundary and limit for everything, balanced everything with measure and weighing, keeps the whole universe under His divine control with all of its events and states, rules, manages and trains the whole universe with perfect  balance, does not allow anything to remain out of the scope of His will, knows and sees all land, property, the universe and space, all states and deeds, prepared enough atoms for the crops He will get and the artistic things He will create from the benches of the universe up to the Day of Judgment.   

That Pre-eternal Wise Being keeps the atoms that He created by ibdamahd and sends them from one task to another to those benches by turns. That is to say, He makes an atom or element fulfill endless tasks and gets endless products. The All-Powerful Wise Being, who closed  the door of ibdamahd after creating all elements, makes atoms do one task after another and uses them repeatedly in order to show His infinite wisdom.

7.2.7- Just like an author plans his book and writes it…

Let us explain this issue in another way: Let us assume that a wise and knowledgeable person wants to write a very comprehensive book covering various sciences. First, he wills to write the book in his heart, which is like the Arsh; then, he determines the content of the comprehensive book in his brain, which is like the Kursiyy. Then, he fills his pen with enough ink to write the book and writes the book in accordance with the principles he has determined in his memory. Is it possible to say for that wise and knowledgeable person:

“Why does he fill the ink before the book? He should fill the pen with the ink before each page.”?

Can it be regarded as a deficiency for the writer to fill all the ink beforehand? In fact, this state does not show deficiency of the writer but the perfection of his knowledge and his prudence. In addition, it shows that the whole book is encompassed by his knowledge, that each letter is determined by calligraphic style, that each letter is written according to the plan and determination in his knowledge, that the book is present and ready in his knowledge even before it is written with its form and content. Thus, the author writes his book with his wonderful knowledge and comprehensive memory as he has determined it and arranges it neatly.

Similarly, the Pre-eternal Wise Being willed to write this book of the universe. He determined all atoms (which are like the ink in the example), namely, the elements, which were necessary to be written for the book, and created them with His infinite power. All the elements act according to the plan and determination in that pre-eternal knowledge and function like the ink of the book of the universe.

To sum up, various animals and plants in the world that were produced from the same simple substances and that were written with the same ink become exposed to the same air, the same water and the same light but each species, and even each individual, has colors and shapes, characteristics, taste and smell, life and emotions, temperament and abilities that distinguish them from others. These innumerable virtues and characteristics that are not found in the atoms appear with “ibda”.

Yes, the spring season is an example of this reality that resembles the Day of Resurrection. What is more, every  moment is like a spring for the “ijad” and “ibda” of Allah Almighty. If the atoms on earth were to be re-created at any moment and in every stage, perhaps the Earth’s current weight by would increase millions of times today, the overall balance in the universe would be disrupted and the expected results of creation would not emerge.
