Unquestionably, nothing can be more important than the creation of man and his knowing his Creator. What we have done throughout the booklet is to try to comprehend a subject that is an issue of the utmost importance for every person.

We think it necessary to remind the reader at this point that one does not need reams of information to grasp that the universe and everything in it, including oneself, have been created. It is as much within the scope of the conscience and reason of a small child as it is within that of an adult to grasp that he was created. The prophet Abraham's words in the Qur'an are a very good example of what we mean.

The Prophet Abraham once lived in a community that did not believe in God and worshipped totem poles instead. Although he had never received any teaching about the existence of God, he had grasped with his reason and conscience that he had been created-moreover, that he had been created by God, Who created the heavens and the earth. In the Qur'an it is related like this:

When the night covered him over, he saw a star. He said: "This is my Lord." But when it set, he said: "I love not those that set." When he saw the moon rising in splendour, he said: "This is my Lord." But when the moon set, he said: "Unless my Lord guides me, I shall surely be among those who go astray." When he saw the sun rising in splendour, he said: "This is my Lord; this is the greatest (of all)." But when the sun set, he said: "O my people! I am indeed free from your (guilt) of giving partners to God. For me, I have set my face, firmly and truly, towards Him Who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I ascribe partners to God." (The Qur'an, 6:76-79)

As we see in the example of the Prophet Abraham, everyone who has reason and conscience and, more importantly, who "does not reject in iniquity and arrogance" is capable of understanding that the universe was created and, moreover, that it was created with a great order and plan.

No doubt the state of those who reject the existence of God, despite all the manifest signs displayed for all to see, is quite astonishing to those who have reason and conscience. In the Qur'an, the following is stated about those who do not believe in God's power of creation:

If you marvel (at their want of faith), strange is their saying: "When we are (actually) dust, shall we indeed then be in a creation renewed?" They are those who deny their Lord! They are those round whose necks will be yokes (of servitude): they will be companions of the fire, to dwell therein (for aye)! (The Qur'an, 13: 5)

The things related in this booklet are more important than anything else in your life. Perhaps you have so far failed to give due consideration to the importance of this subject or perhaps you may never have even thought about it before. However, be assured that to recognise God, Who has created you, is more important and urgent than anything else you can do.

Think about what He has granted you: you live in a world subtly-planned down to its slightest detail and created specially for you. You had no part in this process. You opened your eyes one day and found yourself amidst countless blessings. You can see, you can hear, you can feel…

And it is so because He willed such a creation. In a verse it is said:

It is He Who brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers when you knew nothing; and He gave you hearing and sight and intelligence and affections: that you may give thanks (to God). (The Qur'an, 16:78)

As stated in the verse, it is none but God Who has given you everything you own and Who created the universe you live in. Therefore, come and submit your whole self to God and be grateful to Him for all the blessings He has endowed you with and thereby earn an eternal reward. If you do the opposite, you will be showing ingratitude and exposing yourself to a penalty that, by the will of God, shall last forever.

Be assured: He does exist and He is very close to you…

He sees and knows everything that you do, and hears every word you utter…

And be assured that everyone, including you, will soon give account to Him…
