One Creator And He (Alone) Has The Right To Be Worshipped

Allaah (The Most High) said:

‘’No son (or offspring or children) did Allah beget, nor is there any ilah (god) along with Him; (if there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allah above all that they attribute to Him!’’ [Quran, 23:91]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: Ponder upon this overwhelming proof with this short and clear statement; for indeed a true god has to be a Creator and a performer of actions, and he benefits his slaves and averts evil from them. And had it been that there was another god alongside Him [Allaah (The One Free from All Imperfections)], then that god would have had his own creation and actions, and He (The One Free from All Imperfections) is not pleased that another god is associated as a partner of His.

And that is because (if such a god was existent) and able to overcome him, he would have done so. And if (such a god) was unable to overcome Him, he would have taken away what he created and depart, just as the kings of this world isolate themselves from one another when they are unable to overcome and gain authority over others. Therefore, there has to be one of the (following) three affairs:

[1] Either that each god departs with what he has created and with his authority, [2] or that some of them gain authority over others, [3] or that all of them are placed under the authority of one god, who controls their affairs and they do not control His affairs, and they are restrained by His judgements, but they cannot restrain Him with their judgements. So He (alone) is the true God and they are His nurtured and subjugated slaves.

The organization of the affairs of world above and below, the connection between them and their establishment upon a well-planned and perfect organization neither clashes nor becomes ruin. This is the most confirmed evidence that the controller of its affairs is one and that there is not another god besides Him, just as evidence makes it impossible for its creator to be more than one and that there is not another creator for it.

And just as it is impossible for the universe to have two equal Lords and creators, likewise it is not possible for it to have two gods that have the right to be worshipped.[1]

Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq Bin Abdul Muhsin Al-Badr (hafidha-hullaah) said: ‘’one of the heads of the philosophers was walking in the streets with his students; so they went past an old woman and she said: ‘’who is this’’. It was said to her: ‘’Do you not know who he is? He has more than a thousand proofs to prove the existence of Allaah.’’ She replied: ‘’If he did not have with him a thousand doubts, he would not have needed all these proofs.’’ [2]
