Surah Ya Sin, 78 (Allah always described Creation)



Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s live interview dated September 10th, 2011

Surah Ya Sin, 78

He makes likenesses of Us and forgets his own Creation, saying, ‘Who will give life to bones when they are decayed’?”

What is that? Weakness of faith. He cannot believe. What do you need in the face of that? Genuine faith. Absolute faith. Say ‘He Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life. He has total knowledge of each created thing;”

What is that? Signs leading to faith. Because Almighty Allah encourages people to think. He says that He “Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life.” Human beings are created most perfectly. They are made one time only. This pen has been made once. Could the factory make another one? Yes, it could. Why not? We cannot say, “You cannot make another one.” Because it obviously can. Can a craftsman who makes one chair not make another? Yes, he can. That applies to everything. Allah also says He “made them in the first place...” So can He not do it again? That is such an easy thing that human beings cannot comprehend it. Allah reminds us of that. It is so easy but billions of people cannot comprehend it. Then they say, “Actually, that is really true. I never thought about that before.” Human beings think so superficially. That is why Allah reminds us. Their thinking is so impaired that they say, "Who will give life to bones when they are decayed?” Since they are materialists, they say, “Once matter has gone it is all over.” Since they look at things from a materialist perspective. They are unable to equate matter and the soul since they deny the existence of the soul. That is weakness of faith. “He Who produces fire for you from green trees.”

Allah also notes the greenness of wood and says He has made it flammable. Allah opens our horizons. But it never even occurs to people. In other words, Allah’s Creation of trees such that they can be burned, and their arising from green plants and growing from the soil. They emerge from soil and water and soon become capable of being burned. Can you burn soil? No. Can water burn? No. But water and soil combine together. You look and see that something flammable has emerged. Then you look and see that fruit has formed. Oranges, apples, mandarins, walnuts, melons, watermelons, beans, lentils and whatever else you can think of form in the soil. “He Who produces fire for you from green trees.” Allah broadens our horizons. He encourages us to see the signs leading to faith and to think. He reminds us to reflect in order to expand our horizons. When we reflect on it we start thinking of a whole chain of other things. Allah does this so we should think of other things. Does He Who created the heavens and earth not have the power to create the same again?”There is another logic here. Has He created the atmosphere in the most perfect form? Yes, He has. He also created the soil. Does not Allah cause this Earth to float like a feather in the boundless vasts of space? We are like a ship. We are like a ship with 7 billion people in it. We are floating about like a feather in a ship full of 7 billion people. Never running aground or suffering any turbulence. Take a car. No matter what equipment they provide, cars still rock about, as do planes. But there is not the slightest turbulence here. The whole world is moving through the sky. The soul also floats like that. And nothing happens to it. Does He Who created the heavens and earth not have the power to create the same again?”I “made them in the first place” He says, the Earth and sky. So why should I not be able to make the earth and sky of paradise?In other words, “Since I have created man once, why should I be unable to do so again?” He is encouraging us to think. But Allah does not provide so much information as to eliminate the need for our free will. Because the test would therefore be meaningless. Allah prepares the ground for us to reflect. Almighty Allah says,Does He Who created the heavens and earth not have the power to create the same again?”Allah does not leave it there. He encourages people to expand their minds. He is the Creator, the All-Knowing.”

Allah always described Creation. And what I talk about is always Creation. So what do they say about us? “They are creationists,” they say. When we say that “Allah created,” they call us creationists. What do they say? They say, “It was chance that created.” “An idol did it,” they say. But what do we say? “Allah created.” “…when He desires a thing is just to say to it, ‘Be!’ and it is,” saysAllah. Where is the evolution in that? Allah answers evolutionists like that. Evolutionists say, “It must have taken a very long time. Allah could not do so otherwise (may Allah forbid!).” But Allah says, “when He desires a thing is just to say to it, ‘Be!’ and it is.”

Allah gives a time frame. “And it is.” It happens instantaneously. “Glory be to Him Who has the Dominion of all things in His Hand. To Him you will be returned.”

Do you see the signs leading to faith? Allah directs us to these so we will have faith and believe this. That is why the signs leading to faith are the most vital subjectAnd I concentrate on the signs leading to faith above all else. I concentrate on genuine faith. I am opposed to imitation faith. It must not be imitation, but genuine. Imitation faith is weak.
