Fundamentals of Faith: Proofs of Existence of God
In this 5th episode of Fundamentals of Faith, Shaikh Abu Ammar Yassir Qadhi presents some of the proofs of the existence of God. This continues from the previous episodes about our Imaan/Faith/Belief (Tawheed) in Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and the knowledge that brings life to our heart. A must see lecture for all.
We Read in the Qur’an:
“If you asked them, ‘Who created the heavens and earth and subjected the sun and the moon?’ they would surely say, ‘Allah.’ Then how are they deluded?
Allah extends provision for whom He wills of His servants and restricts for him. Indeed Allah is, of all things, Knowing.
And if you asked them, ‘Who sends down rain from the sky and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness?’ they would surely say ‘Allah.’ Say, ‘Praise to Allah’; but most of them do not reason.”
[Surah Al-Ankabut, Ayat 61-63]
“Their messengers said, ‘Can there be doubt about Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth? He invites you that He may forgive you of your sins, and He delays your death for a specified term.’ They said, ‘You are not but men like us who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshipping. So bring us a clear authority.’
Their messengers said to them, ‘We are only men like you, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah. And upon Allah let the believers rely.'”
[Surah Ibraheem, Ayat 10-11]
“Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators [of themselves]?
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain.
Or have they the depositories [containing the provision] of your Lord? Or are they the controllers [of them]?
Or have they a stairway [into the heaven] upon which they listen? Then let their listener produce a clear authority.”
[Surah At-Tur, Ayat 35-38]
“He created the heavens without pillars that you see and has cast into the earth firmly set mountains, lest it should shift with you, and dispersed therein from every creature. And We sent down rain from the sky and made grow therein [plants] of every noble kind.
This is the creation of Allah. So show Me what those other than Him have created. Rather, the wrongdoers are in clear error.”
[Surah Luqman, Ayat 10-11]
