Is He who created the heavens and the earth not able to create the likes of them?

Written and collected by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times

The title of this article is a part of a verse of the holy Quran from Surah Yasin:

Is He who created the heavens and the earth not able to create the likes of them? Of course He is! He is the All Knowing Creator. (Al Quran 36:82/83)

We believe the two fundamental beliefs in Islam, which it shares with Judaism and Christianity are belief in the Transcendent God and accountability in the life after death. (Al Quran 87:16-19) The former is discussed at some length in Surah Al Fatihah and the latter in Surah Al Waqi’ah.

The verse under discussion links the teaching of the Creator God and our accountability.

I believe that a collection of articles below can drive home both these teachings of the holy Quran that are the foundation of Islam and also of the other Abrahamic faiths, Christianity and Judaism:
