AL- QADEE - The Ruler; He Who Completes His Task

Harun Yahya
The Originator of the heavens and Earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it: “Be!” and it is. (Surat al-Baqara, 2:117)

Allah is infinitely powerful. As the verses inform us, He wills something into existence by saying “Be.” No doubt this is an obvious manifestation of Allah's greatness and absolute control over the universe.

From humanity's perspective, all life on Earth operates according to the law of cause and effect. For instance, objects depend upon Earth's gravity to remain stationary, while ships float only because water holds them up. But Allah is exalted above all of these causes and effects, for He creates all causes and the ensuing effects within the framework of certain laws and cause-and-effect relations to reveal whether we are His true servants. No doubt, Allah can easily create things without a cause. Indeed in the Qur'an, Allah relates some of His miracles, such as the birth of Prophet ‘Isa (as) without a father:

She [Maryam] said: “My Lord! How can I have a son when no man has ever touched me?” He said: “It will be so.” Allah creates whatever He wills. When He decides on something, He just says to it: “Be!” and it is. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 3:47)

Allah informs us that everything is possible when He commands “Be.” That Allah has infinite power, owns the entire universe, and rules humanity is related in several verses, as follows:

The likeness of ‘Isa in Allah's sight is the same as Adam. He created him from earth and then said to him: “Be!” and he was. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 3:59)

He created the heavens and Earth with truth. The day He says “Be!” it is. His speech is Truth. The Kingdom will be His on the Day the Trumpet is blown, the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible. He is the All-Wise, the All-Aware. (Surat al-An‘am, 6:73)

His command when He desires a thing is just to say to it: “Be!” and it is. (Surah Ya Sin, 36:82)

He gives life and causes to die. When He decides on something, He just says to it: “Be!” and it is. (Surat al-Ghafir, 40:68)
