Creation of Allah (SWT)


I have the belief that Allah is the sole creator of all creation.  Thus is it right to say that “phone is a creation of Allah” or “good and bad was created by Allah”?

Please pray that for me that Allah give me a death with Iman.


Alaykum Salam,

Allah is indeed the sole absolute creator of all creation, al-Khaliq and al-Khallaq, al-Mubdi’, Badi` al-samawat wal-ard, Fatir al-samawat wal-ard etc. As for creatures such as human beings or animals or plants that make up ingenious devices for their own benefit, they are all relative creators or inventors by permission of Allah Who gave them that ability.

When describing Allah we always use the expressions He Himself mentioned, or His Prophet (saws) mentioned. When describing creatures we may attribute them the ability to invent or create in the relative sense mentioned, such as phones.

As for “good and bad” then the Pillar of belief in Qada‘ and Qadar makes it obligatory on all Muslims to believe indeed that all good and bad is by Divine decree. At the same time, the onus of responsibility for evil is carried exclusively by evil-doers, i.e. creatures.

May Allah grant you and us to live and die with Iman.
