Proof God is Uncreated (RT 18/5/08)

Risalah Tauhid 18 May 2008

2nd Dalil - Proof that God is Eternal

Truly God is eternal (uncreated). Rejecting this concept would have implied God is ‘new’ and ‘created’ by some other force.

If God had been created by another ‘force’, then who created that force? And we already know God creates everything else. Now we are in catch-22, which does not make sense. This situation is called ‘Durr’, and it is impossible (mustahil).

In another perspective, if God had been created by a more superior ‘force’ (name it Force #1), then it is just possible that there is Force #2 who created Force #1, and Force #3 who created Force #2. The chain goes on, which makes argument pointless. This situation is called ‘Tasalsul’, and is also rejected.

Dalil Naqli to establish that God is uncreated is the ayat from al-Quran:

He is (the God) who is the First with no beginning, and the Last with no ending.

Ustaz Zakaria added:

  • Pure talk does not make Islam any stronger. We become strong by educating ourselves.
  • Hj. Daud Bukit Abal (rh) also had a deep knowledge in ‘ilm Tauhid even though more famous for specialty in Tasawwuf.
  • Reflecting about God constitutes remembrance of Allah in a subtle way (zikr khaufi).

Wallahu a'lam
