Everything is consistent in the divine system
By: Dr. Ismail Ulukus
In my previous articles, I explained you that the divine system has a perfect unity and integrity, everything is created with a specific purpose in order to perform a definite function within this unity, objects, facts and processes are organized to complement each other and the factors are provided with qualities and abilities to fit the purpose of creation. I tried to give some typical examples for the above to be understood better. The divine system has no doubt hundred thousands of situations similar to those examples given. However; I think those selected examples will be enough to explain how all was created in order.
Dear readers, all of these are provided by using very accurate and precise measurements in the universe which is a unique and perfect system and has sights of the Creator's attributes of wisdom, might and grace. You see the huge consequences we are confronted with as a result of even 0.001% of variation in carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere.
# Everything in the Universe is consistent
Anything in the divine system was and is created by Allah (swt), the creator of the system, in accordance with specific proportions. This is called "providence" (qadar). There is nothing out of proportion in the divine order where "the proportion and rates" between the elements are determined in order to provide for the needs of a perfect whole.
"... For all things has Allah appointed a due proportion?" (Talaq, 3)
"We sent aforetime our messengers with Clear Signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance (of Right and Wrong)" (Hadid, 25)
Furthermore, every event that does and will take place in this excellent and perfect order is connected to a written program, by Almighty Allah who is the creator, owner and manager of this order so that they are valid for all times and all places.
"No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a Book before We bring it into existence: That is truly easy for Allah." (Hadid, 22)
" from Whom is not hidden the least little atom in the heavens or on earth: nor is there anything less than that, or greater, but is in the Record Perspicuous" (Saba, 3)
"Nothing have We omitted from the Book; ..." (An'aam, 38)
# Nothing in Universe is random
The unity and integrity in the universe, is nothing but the reflection of the Creator's attributes of existence and the unity.
Allah is the one and only in his presence, attributes and works (creating and managing). He is unique and has no partners or assistants. Everything in the universe has a unity, integrity, coherence and consistency because everything is created by the same power or in other words the system is built by a single power. Nothing in universe is random. Nothing is overlooked; everything is integrated point by point and grid by grid in the system up to the finest detail.
Besides, not only the system was built and positioned but the mechanisms, which will create the necessary energy for its dynamism, provide its security and continuous renewal were created too.
Please remember the nutrient and energy chain which provides food for all the living being. Remember that a living thing's feces or corpse can be a source of nutrition for others. Remember how thousands of years old trees which are cut at the bottom renew themselves branching from their roots. Remember how a flower put at the window turns its leaves towards the light in order to assimilate more. Remember how a person's hands become callous protecting the lower tissues from the impacts, when he ends up doing jobs with his arms using digging tools after working in passive jobs. Remember how the birds and other animals molt as they pass from cold to hot seasons and how they form tissues suitable to the new season. Remember how the trees in the forests become taller in order to get more light; how a wound is healed by forming a scar tissue when a living being is injured. Remember how all surfaces of living beings are covered by an infarct protecting them from viruses and bacterial infections; how we try to protect our body heat by sweating in hot weather and shivering in cold weather. Remember how we are warned by a pain or ache mechanism even when a small problem occurs in any part of our bodies. Please try to seize how our Lord protects each living being from many bad and negative situations with his mercy; how perfect mechanisms he created within the living beings' constitution by observing the environment we live in.
Without doubt, the divine order is a perfect system in every aspect. Nobody is able to know, understand or explain in every detail. If we consider this system, which is composed of systems within a system, from the perspective of our world, we seize that it was not contented with the creation of these mechanisms but also designation of a ruler for the system with the creation of an intelligent creature as "human being" who is honorable and will look after the world.
# The status of the Human Being
The "human being" has an especial duty and status within this wonderful system. It is ordered in Qur'ân that:
"We have honored the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favors, above a great part of Our Creation." (Isra, 70)
That our Lord has now provided us with transport even in the sky but not only on land and on the sea. We must thank him on every occasion.
Indeed, today, we see that even The Creator granted many creatures some of his wisdom, as much as they would need, He not only granted the human being wisdom but also opened the doors to new knowledge by teaching them the learning techniques and blessed them with competency for some of his secrets. Thus enabled human beings to reach the point to be competent to many secrets of creation.
The certain attributes of Allah which He partially blessed the other creatures with appear in human beings in greater extent than they do in the other creatures. Although many of the creatures can see and hear as they need, human beings added both the smallest bacteria and viruses and the furthest places of the universe to their knowledge with the use of equipment they produced.
# Human being is the caliph of Allah on earth
A human being is an honorable creature. Human is the caliph of Allah on earth. He is a saintly creature. Allah created human being in a way that he can comprehend his presence and manage the earth and therefore blessed him with the necessary abilities such as ‘mind’.
"and makes you (mankind) inheritors of the earth..." (Naml, 62)
"It is He Who hath made you the inheritors of the earth: He hath raised you in ranks, some above others: that He may try you in the gifts He hath given you" (An'aam, 165)
"And He has subjected to you, as from Him, all that is in the heavens and on earth: behold, in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect." (Jathiya, 13)
Besides the material support, the Creator also gives humans support for spiritual education so that they can achieve the highest level of matureness. The human being can only reach the fifth-dimension through spiritual education. (Please read our article titled "Correct Understanding the Human") Unfortunately, many people ignore this grace and gift nowadays and deprive themselves the chance of getting to know their God sufficiently.
Be entrusted to Allah..
