- Logical Proof
By looking into Allah’s creation we see many signs which prove His existence. For instance, if you walk in a desert and you find a yellow and black sharpened pencil with a red eraser, would any wise person dare to say that this pencil, through time, hundreds, thousands or even millions of years ago formed on its own?! What is the chance of that happening?! Can coincidence cause that?!
Well, what if we find dozens of similar pencils around, what would be the chance now?!
Compare this single tiny pencil to this gigantic, complex, coherent, and well-integrated universe with all its abundant and diverse creations. Can it come into existence on its own?!
Allah said: (Were they created by nothing? or were they themselves the creators?) (The Noble Qur’an 52:35)
- Legitimate Proof
Proofs from the Qur’an and the authentic Sunnah (Prophetic tradition) confirm Allah’s existence; additionally, the Qur’an is full of logical proofs which confirm His oneness. Allah asks us to look and ponder upon His creation to be guided to Him.
Allah the Exalted said: (Do they not look at the camels, how they are created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted (and fixed firm)? (19) And at the earth, how it is outspread? (20)) (The Noble Qur’an 88:17-20)
Allah the Exalted said: (We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Qur’an) is the truth.) (The Noble Qur’an 41:53)
