Proof that God exists ( RT 11/5/08)

Risalah Tauhid 11 May 2008

The world is formed of jirim and 'arod. From there we can establish that the world is created and it is new. Therefore, God exists because the world is new. Everything new has a creator.
'Jirim' refers to a physical being that occupies space, while ' 'arod' is a being that is liable to change. A jirim is like an atom, that can stick together to form a much bigger entity. Entities change form due to growth, climate, external force etc.

Thus for Dalil 'Aqli, we have established that God exists due to 3 evidence:

  1. That the world is new
  2. That jirim is new
  3. That 'arod is new
As for Dalil Naqli, there are many ayats in al-Quran that argue for existence of Allah.
An example is what we understand from Surah az-Dzariaat ayat 23:

By God who created the heavens and earth, it is the truth (that He exists), just
like (the truth that) you can speak.

Said Ustaz Zakaria:
  • A tree is both jirim and 'arod, because it is a composition of atoms and grows with age.
  • It is the ruh (soul) not the jasad (body) that absorbs the Islamic lessons.
  • Knowledge is a provision we take for the long journey. After death, knowledge is the one safeguarding from the trials in our grave.

Wallahu a'lam
