Proof There is Only One God (RT 29/6/08)

Risalah Tauhid 29 June 2008

6th Dalil – Proof Oneness of God (Wahdaniah)

If God was not singular, then the world would not come into existence. If there were more than one God, each must have been weaker and would complement the powers of the other. How could they create and maintain this world if they have weakness?

A further proof is the word from al-Qur’an:

وَلَو كَانَ فِيهِمَا آلِهَةٌ إِلاَّاللَّه لَفَسَدَتَا
(ألاءنبياء اية 22)

If there was God in the heavens and earth other than Allah, surely they (heavens
and earth) would be obliterated.
(al-Anbia’ -22).

We can further break down this issue into 4 rebuttals:

  1. If really more than one God worked together to create this world, how would they handle the tiniest of nucleus, which is undividable? It is like forcing 2 or more pens marking a small dot on a piece of paper.

  2. If one God made an object in half, then another God picked up where the first one left off, who would be responsible for the total object?

  3. If one God made it nighttime, and the other decided it should be daytime, things would go helter skelter.

  4. If many Gods collaborated to create something, at least one should give way to the more competent God. The one giving way was undeniably weak. But since all of them were Gods, they share that “weak” attribute. It is simply impossible that God is weak.

Said Ustaz Zakaria:

  • Men’s purpose in life is to be faithful to God.
  • Plant’s and animal’s purpose in life is to benefit mankind.
  • God made intelligence for us as a mean to be faithful to Him. Intelligence is not a mean by which we make a living. Contemplate this: a chicken has no intelligence, yet its stomach is full every morning; man with intelligence has no guarantee he has something to eat that day.
  • A person whose heart is alive always see Allah in his daily activities. All we need is knowledge on dalil.
  • Hadith: “A person who has understanding in his religion is a person who Allah has blessed with virtue.”

Wallahu a'lam
