Creation of Man

 Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is a greater (matter) than the creation of men: Yet most men understand not.



See they not how Allah originates creation then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.       Quran-29:19


The creation of the Heaven and earth God says is indeed a more complicated task than the creation of Man but we should understand clearly that however complicated or however difficult a task it might seem; to God it was a simple task – for all he had to do was to intend as to what he wanted and say “Be” and it came into “Being” i.e. it comes into existence; at this juncture we should also understand that God created all things without any prior model or sample – everything of his creation was and is and will be ORIGINAL – God never had the necessity to copy or imitate someone else it is only we human beings who are copying and imitating the creations of God Almighty.


Or who originates Creation then repeats it and who gives you sustenance from heaven and earth? (Can there be another) god besides Allah? Say "Bring forth your argument if ye are telling the truth!"



God CHALLENGES man and tells him that it is He (God) who is the creator and sustainer of all that he has created and if man disagrees then God challenges him to bring another being who would create in an original form i.e. – he should create something original without taking any samples or models from God’s creation nor taking or using what God has created like metal, wood, water, stone, sand, etc., etc., if there be any other than God then let him create something equal to what God has created from NOTHING – this alone is sufficient proof that there is no God save the ONE and ONLY True God who is in truth the Creator and sustainer.


He Who has made everything which He has created most Good.  He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay.     



And He it is Who hath created man from water, and hath appointed for him kindred by blood and kindred by marriage; for thy Lord is ever Powerful.



God created Adam(a.s) with water and clay and God gave Adam an original form and from Adam he created his mate Eve, and God drew forth from the loin of Adam and Eve their entire progeny i.e drew forth the complete human race, to the very last child to be born on this earth and asked them “Am I not your Lord!” to which they unanimously replied “Certainly you are our Lord”.  Here, most Scholars are of the opinion, that it is the souls of the people that was brought out and questioned, but we should understand that the souls of people are not drawn out from the loins, it is definitely the physical body which was drawn out from the loins for the souls are with God Almighty and have no necessity to be drawn from the loins of man.


 When thy Lord drew forth from the children of Adam from their loins their descendants and made them testify concerning themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord (who cherishes and sustains you)?"  They said: "Yea! we do testify!"  (This) lest ye should say on the Day of Judgment: "of this we were never (aware of or) mindful."   Quran-7:172


Allah reminds the entire human race of their initial promise to Him; - and as for the Prophets, and the Revelations that have been coming to them from time immemorial are all but reminders from God Almighty of their promise, their Initial promise to their Lord and Creator, Cherisher and Sustainer, and it is a promise that they would worship none other than Him the One and ONLY True Lord.


Or lest ye should say: "Our fathers before us may have taken false gods but we are (their) descendants after them: wilt thou then destroy us because of the deeds of men who were futile?"   Quran-7:173


But  when Adam and Eve trespassed the law of God, they were commanded to go to the earth along with all their progeny and they were sent down:


Then did Satan make them slip from the (garden) and get them out of the state (of felicity) in which they had been.  We (God) said: "Get ye down all (ye people) with enmity between yourselves.  On earth will be your dwelling place and your means of livelihood for a time." Quran-2:36


At this juncture I would like to point out that most of the scholars are confused as to what happened to the entire humanity – the entire progeny of Adam and Eve, that was taken out from the loins of Adam and Eve, as far as I am concerned when God says “get ye down all you people” then  the entire progeny of Adam and Eve came to earth and were intermingled with the earth – they were part and parcel with the earth – in the soil, water, vegetation, and animal products and air, for God Says:


Has there not been over Man a long period of Time when he was nothing--(not even) mentioned?        Quran-76:1

For God says in the Quran that there was a long period of time from the time Adam came to this earth till the time one by one the people were born on this earth when none were able to even guess or imagine, as to where they were, or what form they were occupying – it was only when the Father consumed the product of the earth and produced the sperm, similarly the mother consumed the product of the earth and produced the egg and they fertilized and then the mother consumed the product of the earth – like vegetations, animal products, water, air, etc. etc. and passed on the nutrients to the baby till it was born and then the child like parent consumed the product of the earth and grew his full growth collecting all his necessary ingredients from the earth and its products, in which he was totally mingled – God in front of our own eyes collected us (our physical form) from various parts of the earth sometimes from all parts of the Globe and built us right in front of our eyes – only the soul came from above and was blown into the body of the child when it was still in the womb of the mother on the 120th day.  The entire physical body was gathered from the earth – where we were lying all along without knowing where we were or what form we occupied or where all we were spread out.


Allah's Apostle, the truthful and truly-inspired, said, "Each one of you collected in the womb of his mother for forty days, and then turns into a clot for an equal period (of forty days) and turns into a piece of flesh for a similar period (of forty days) and then Allah sends an angel and orders him to write four things, i.e., his provision, his age, and whether he will be of the wretched or the blessed (in the Hereafter). Then the soul is breathed into him.
Bukhari Hadith – 8:593     By Abdullah(r.a)


So one should understand that from the beginning of life we were all in this earth and we will be in this earth till the end of the time on this earth – i.e. till the resurrection day, God collected us in front of our eyes and will disintegrate us into the soil (the earth) in front of the eyes of the others and would certainly collect us back for the Judgment day and reassemble us in front of His Mighty Throne and it is indeed an easy task for Him.


And he makes comparisons for us and forgets his own (Origin and) Creation: He says "Who can give life to (dry) bones and decomposed ones (at that)?"

Say "He (God) will give them life Who created them for the first time! For He is well-versed in every kind of creation!       Quran-36:78,79


Not only does God Almighty gather us from the earth right in front of our own eyes, He will also make us judges of our own deeds on this earth on the resurrection day, for He being God Almighty knows fully too well where we are going to go either to Hell or Heaven, even before he created us for He is God, He is the ALL Knowing God, and if He did not know it then He cannot be called the All Knowing – this life is for ourselves to know as to what we sought in this earth – did we seek Good or Bad, did we do the right thing or the wrong thing, did we seek God’s way or Satan’s way,  every bit of thought word and deed of our earthly life would be portrayed in front of us from the beginning, to the time of our death, and then we would have to be the Judge of our own deeds – and we would give the judgment as to whether we belong to Hell or Heaven, and mind you your mouth would not lie – what it says would be the TRUTH and only the TRUTH.


Friends – this life is but a very very short one – it has been expanded and magnified to make it look like a long long time – actually the fifty or hundred years we have is like a fleeting second and it would disappear in no time and when we  compare it  with the billions and billions and billions of never ending life of the hereafter it is nothing more than a drop of water when compared to the entire oceans of the world; - in this short time on earth we have to prove to ourselves whether we belong to God or Satan, to Heaven or Hell.  Please seek the truth which God has sent us thru his unique, unadulterated, unpolluted, book which has been preserved in its pristine purity, the one and only book of God which has been preserved in this form, THE QURAN and trim your life in accordance to this Quran for this  will enable you to enter into a life of never ending bliss never ending JOY and enable you to have anything and everything you want, and much   more, in the true sense; where everything could be had just for the asking and what more, there will never be any don’ts or sins, or old age or sickness or death or any calamities; everything would be legal and achievable and enjoyable.


May God Almighty guide us and teach us to understand His religion with utmost ease and comfort and adhere to it with the same ease and comfort; and enable us to reach the highest of Heavens without any questions being asked  (aameen).
