The Quran's Logic

Going back to the logic of the Qur'an in portraying Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) we find the following:

Allah has not chosen any son, nor is there with him any god; otherwise each god would have assuredly championed that which he created and some of them would prevail over others. Glorified be Allah above all that they allege. Knower of the invisible and the visible. Exalted be he over all that they ascribe as partners.(23:91-92)

Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) did not create the universe then forgot it or neglected it, but he is in full control of all his creation. Thus he is the over lord, the sovereign. In the words of the Qur'an:

Blessed is he in whose hand is the sovereignty, and he is capable to do all things. Who has created death and life so that he may try you, which of you is best in conduct; and he is the mighty, the forgiving; who has created seven heavens in harmony. You can see no fault in the Beneficent's creation. ( 67:1-3 )

Again in the chapter called (the story) we read:

And your lord creates what he wills and chooses; they never have the choice. Glorified be Allah and be he exalted above all that they associate (with him). And your lord knows what their breasts conceal and what they reveal. And he is Allah; there is no god except he; his is all praise first and last, and his is the judgement; and unto him you will be returned.( 28:68-70 )

Then in order to feel the hand of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) in the world around us the Qur'an shakes us so that we emerge from the state of oblivion. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) says:

Say: have you thought if Allah made night everlasting for you until the day of judgement, who is a god beside Allah who could bring you light? Will you not then hear? Say: have you thought if Allah made day everlasting for you until the day of judgement, who is a god beside Allah who could bring you night wherein you are still and (get comfort). Will you not then see? Of his mercy has he appointed for you night and day that therein you may rest, and that you may seek his bounty, and perhaps you may be thankful.( 28:71-73 )

Not only is Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) the sovereign and controller of the universe, but he is the source of light in it. This is stated in the verse called the verse of lights which says:

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of his light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass; the glass as it were is a shining star. This lamp is kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glowforth though no fire touched it. Light upon light, Allah guides unto his light whom he will. And Allah coins parables to mankind and Allah is knower of all things.( 24:35 )

So for mankind to get a glimpse into the divine light the Qur'an guides us where to seek it:

In houses which Allah permitted to be raised and his name shall be remembered in them. Therein men do glorify him at morn and evening who neither merchandise nor sale beguiles them from the remembrance of Allah, and the establishment of prayer and paying the poor their due. They fear a day when hearts and eyeballs will be overturned. So that Allah may reward them with the best of what they do and increase them out of his bounty. And Allah provides whomsoever he will without measure.( 24:36-38 ) Because some people claim that when god created the universe he was tired so he had to take rest one day which they called the Sabbath. To refute this the Qur'an quotes Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) in the following:

And verily we created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days. Not the least weariness ever touched us.( 50:38 )

The same truth is confirmed in chapter 7 verse 54, which confirms the overwhelming might of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala):

Your lord is Allah who created the heavens and the earth in six days; he then prevailed on the throne. He covers night with day which hastens to follow it earnestly; he also made the sun and the moon and the stars subservient by his command. His is verily all creation and command. So blessed be Allah the lord of the worlds.( 7:54 )

To describe the encompassing knowledge of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) the Qur'an says:

And with him are the keys of the unseen. None but he knows them. And he knows what is in the land and the sea. Not a single leaf falls but he knows it, not neither a grain amid the darkness of the earth, nor of wet or dry but is (recorded) in a clear book.( 6:59 )
