Proof God's Power,Will,Knowledge,Life (RT 6/7/08)

Risalah Tauhid 6 July 2008

Dalils for Sifats #7 (Power), #8 (Will) #9 (Knowledge) #10 (Alive)

If God lacked any one of the above attributes, then we (creations) wouldn’t be here. But the fact is we are here, so God must be powerful, does things as He likes, has the knowledge to create and manage things, and is alive.

Said Ustaz Zakaria:

  • We can apply the concept of God’s power to creations (possible things) only. He is powerful to create anything that could ever be created.
  • We cannot apply concept of God’s power to ‘must be’ things. Example: It is not right to say "God is powerful, so it must be able to create another ‘God’ or to recreate Himself". This statement is false since God ‘must be’ uncreated.
  • We cannot apply the concept to impossible things either. Example: We cannot say "God can do anything, even make Himself cease to exist". This is false, God ccould never be inexistent.
  • God's knowledge has no limit. He knows every single thing.
Wallahu a’lam.
