Does God exist?

Who created those rocks, those hills, those mountains?
Assalamualaikum~ ^^

Today has been quite a day for me. What was supposed to be my first summer study day turned into a day where studies seemed to be the least of my worries (surprisingly). Today, I did more packing up than studying - maybe because my mum thinks we're gonna go soon. Oh well, might as well pack up now rather than later. Plus, I learnt a simple tip from my mum's friend on how to lose weight - something really useful for me - UNSURPRISINGLY! :) Anyhow, as promised with a special friend, for the rest of my summer days and the days ahead, I would like to try - using all my knowledge and logic, to prove that God exists. InsyaAllah, I will update this blog every night before I go to sleep.

So, does God exist?

(A good story to illustrate how God does exist - click here.)
From the way I see it. If there was no God, how am I here? If there was no Creator, how am I here? Imagine a chair - there would be no chair if there was no man who made it, would there? A house - you won't get a house without groups of people building and structuring it. So, how can I ever say there is no God?

The theory of evolution -


Evolution is the change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms through successive generations. After a population splits into smaller groups, these groups evolve independently and may eventually diversify into new species. A nested hierarchy of anatomical and genetic similarities, geographical distribution of similar species and the fossil record indicate that all organisms are descended from a common ancestor through a long series of these divergent events, stretching back in a tree of life that has grown over the 3,500 million years of life on Earth.[2] - wikipedia


seems completely absurd to me. Would it ever make sense to say that my ancestors were a number of monkeys or orang utans? Seriously, if those theorists want to claim their ancestors were some monkeys, they can be my guest. Me - I believe God created Adam and Eve, my first ancestor.

What came first, a chicken or a chicken's eggs?

In everything that happens, there has got to be an origin, a start - and who or what can create and has created this start if it's not the Creator itself? The evolutionist claims that life starts from the mutation of other animals etc. But, have they ever questioned themselves - who created those other lives? If it was some cells, who created those cells? Nature? Who created nature?

Plus, let's not forget the fact that evolution has only been a theory. Never has it been proved and I think it is most unlikely they will ever be able to prove that theory of theirs. For example, imagine an apple. If we leave it on its tree, not laying a single finger on it - would it transform into a pear or would it fall down its tree, ready for us to eat? There is just no way that there is no God. if there was no God, who can claim power over this world? If there was no God, will we then start worshipping some man who's just the same as us - needs the same air, needs the same necessities as we do?

*I am not trying to tell you what to think. This is my personal opinion. Any feedback on what you think is highly encouraged to be shared here. At least, I can try and see what you're seeing. :)
*InsyaAllah, after this, I will include "The Qur'an & Modern Science : Compatible or Incompatible" written by Dr. Zakir Naik.

  1. couldnt agree more :P
    chicken and egg is a doctrine for us to believe and keep passing on the belief of evolution

  2. Allah created chicken first.and He told us about that in the holy Quran. Just recently, scientists proved that this theory is correct.

    Doesn't this tell us that Allah is the creator since He told us way before mankind can come up with the conclusion?

    nicely written obachan. :)

  4. Asslamualaikum,

    It's been a while, Nabilah.
    Just a quick note.

    Evolution and God's existence does not contradict each other. A Muslim can believe in evolution as long as it doesn't contradict their aqidah. God does things scientifically. Like rain doesn't just pour from the sky without the whole evaporation-condensation water cycle. If evolution is a method used to diversify living things on this planet, then why not?

    I USED to claim that I believe in evolution but chose not to for two reasons.

    1. I have doubts in the conventional theory.
    2. MOST evolutionists are atheists, agnostic or non-theists. I prefer to not be associated to them.


    Wallahu'alam. Wassalam
