Does God exist?
This is a fundamental question, though it its answer is very clear indeed!
Yes, it is!
If any reasonable person starts to look around himself giving it a moment to ponder about the marvellous creation of God (Allah the Almighty, the Creator of all), one would certainly see the many signs of God’s Ultimate and Unlimited Power reflected in everything around us. The rivers, the oceans, the seas, the land, the heaven, the stars, the plants, the animals and even the human beings themselves. All these and many other creatures are full of miraculous signs that prove the Oneness of God and His Ultimate Power that can neither be ignored nor defied by any of His creatures!
Allah the Almighty says in the Ever-Glorious Qur’an what may mean,
“Then do they not look at the camels – how they are created? And at the sky – how it is raised? And at the mountains – how they are erected? And at the earth – how it is spread out? So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder. You are not over them a controller.” (Al-Ghashiyah 88: 17-22), and,
“We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the Truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?” (Fussilat 41: 53)
