The Truth Or The Religious Element (11)
To all these easy reasoning, the Qur’an opposed its decisive argument drawn out from the open book of nature. It demands minds to meditate a little on the successive forms which the human being passes through,
“While He has created you in (different) stages [i.e.first Nutfah, then ‘Alaquah and then Mudghah].” (LXXI, 14), since a drop of blood until his final marvellous state on birth time,
“And indeed we created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth). * Thereafter We made him (the offspring of Adam) as a Nutfah (mixed drops of the male and female sexual discharge and lodged it) in safe lodging (womb of the woman). * Then We made the Nutfah into a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood), then We made the clot into a little lump of flesh, then We made out of that little lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We brought it forth as another creation. So Blessed is Allâh, the Best of creators. * After that, surely, you will die. * Then (again), surely, you will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection.” (XXIII, 12-16).
“God brings out the living _from the dead and brings out the dead from the living” (XXX, 19). Isn’t it easier for the artisan who started the first creation to recommence it?
“And He it is Who originates the creation, then He will repeat it (after it has been perished); and this is easier for Him. His is the highest description (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but He, and there is nothing comparable unto Him) in the heavens and in the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.” (XXX, 27).
The Qur’an draws our attention, particularly to the seasonal events. Don’t we see when God pours down rain on the barren and lifeless earth, “it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every lovely kind (of growth)? (XXII, 5-7).
“Look then at the effects of Allâh's Mercy! How He revives the earth after its death: Verily, that (Allâh) shall indeed raise the dead, and He is Able to do all things”. (XXX, 50),
On what is the resurrection founded? The Qur’an establishes it not only in a divine decree, this sort of obligation which God has made it a duty to Himself,
“And they swear by Allâh their strongest oaths that Allâh will not raise up him who dies. Yes (He will raise them up), - a promise (binding) upon Him in Truth, but most of mankind know not.” (XVI, 38) but also in the requirement of the supreme justice and of the highest wisdom:
“In order that He may make manifest to them the truth of that wherein they differ”, (ibid, 39) and to reward to everyone his deeds, “And Allâh has created the heavens and the earth with truth, in order that each person may be recompensed what he has earned, and they will not be wronged.” (XLV, 22).
