Tujuan Penciptaan Alam Semesta

In Science on October 28, 2008 at 5:30 am

Allah adalah Tuhan semesta alam, yang menciptakan alam semesta dan semua mahluk di dalamnya, diciptakan alam semesta untuk tujuan-tujuan yang sangat penting. Qur’an menginformasikan hal ini sebagai berikut: 

“Dan tidaklah Kami ciptakan langit dan bumi dan segala yang ada di antara keduanya dengan bermain-main.” (QS, 21:16) 

“Dan Kami tidak menciptakan langit dan bumi dan apa yang ada antara keduanya tanpa hikmah. Yang demikian itu adalah anggapan orang-orang kafir, maka celakalah orang-orang kafir itu karena mereka akan masuk neraka. (QS, 38:27)

Semua mahluk memuliakan dan memuji Yang Maha Pencipta dengan cara-cara mereka sendiri. Mereka memenuhi tugas-tugasnya dengan senang dan bergairah. Sebagai contoh, matahari, yang tanpa terjatuh bahkan satu detik pun, bergerak mengitari garis edar, yang sudah digariskan untuknya. Sungai-sungai dengan antusias mengalir ke dalam laut-laut. Binatang-binatang, di bawah perintah dari manusia, melayaninya dengan satu ketaatan yang mutlak.

Di samping itu, jika alam semesta tidak diciptakan, kelanggengan kesempurnaan dan kecantikan dari nama-nama dan sifat-sifat Allah SWT tidak akan pernah diketahui, karena hal tersebut hanya akan dapat diketahui oleh Allah (SWT) sendiri. Dengan menyatakan kecantikan-kecantikan rohani dari nama-nama dan sifat-sifat-Nya, Allah Yang Maha Kuasa, di samping memandang Kecantikan dan Kesempurnaan-Nya sendiri atas karya-karya-Nya sendiri, Dia juga memberi sebagian untuk diketahui para malaikat, manusia, dan jin, yang hal itu merupakan kehormatan dan anugerah yang besar bagi makhluk-Nya.

Pertanyaan tentang “apakah perlu untuk menciptakan mahluk atau tidak?”, Allah (SWT) membuat pilihan Ketuhanan-Nya untuk menciptakan, dan pilihan ini sudah menjadi satu kemurahan yang besar untuk semua makhluk. 

Justru yang tak dapat masuk akal jika Allah swt tidak menciptakan semesta, karena pada ayat-Nya Allah swt, Dia menyebut sifat diri-Nya dengan sifat Shamad — “Allah adalah Tuhan yang bergantung kepada-Nya segala sesuatu.”  (QS. 112:2).

  1. Semua mahluk memuliakan dan memuji Yang Maha Pencipta dengan cara-cara mereka sendiri. Mereka memenuhi tugas-tugasnya dengan senang dan bergairah.

    Jadi kesimpulannya allah menciptakan alam semesta agar supaya dipuji oleh ciptaannya? Apakah ia gila hormat?

    Dear brother, we thank you for its comment and visit,

    The person who gave up atheistic Naturalism and came to believe said: “All praise be to God, I no longer have any doubts, but there are still a few questions about which I am curious.”


    “We hear many lazy people and those who neglect the five daily prayers ask: “What need has God Almighty of our worship that in the Qur’an He severely and insistently reproves those who give up worship and threatens them with such a fearsome punishment as Hell? How is it in keeping with the style of the Qur’an, which is moderate, mild and fair, to demonstrate the ultimate severity towards an insignificant, minor fault?”

    T h e A n s w e r :
    God Almighty has no need of your worship, nor indeed of anything else. Rather, it is you who needs to worship, for in truth you are sick. And as we have proved in many parts of the Risale-i Nur, worship is a sort of remedy for your spiritual wounds. If someone who is ill responds to a compassionate doctor who insists on his taking medicines that are beneficial for his condition by saying: “What need do you have of it that you are insisting in this way?”, you can understand how absurd it would be.

    As for the severe threats and fearsome punishments in the Qur’an concerning the giving up of worship, they may be likened to a king, who, in order to protect his subject’ rights, inflicts a severe punishment on an ordinary man in accordance with the degree that his crime infringes those rights.

    In the same way, the man who gives up worship and ritual prayer is violating in a significant manner the rights of beings, who are like the subjects of the Monarch of Pre-Eternity and Post-Eternity, and is in fact acting unjustly towards them. For the perfections of beings are manifested through the glorification and worship performed by that aspect of them which is directed towards their Maker. The one who abandons worship does not and cannot see this worship. Indeed, he denies it. Furthermore, beings occupy an exalted position by reason of their worship and glorification, and each is a missive of the Eternally Besought One, and a mirror to the Names of its Sustainer. Since he reduces them from their high positions and considers them to be unimportant, lifeless, aimless, and without duties, he is insulting them, and denying and transgressing their perfections.

    Indeed, everyone sees the world in his own mirror. God Almighty created man as a measure and scale for the universe. And from the world He gave a particular world to each person. This world He colours for him in accordance with his sincere beliefs. For example, a despairing, lamenting, weeping person sees beings as weeping and in despair, while a cheerful, optimistic, merry person sees the universe as joyful and smiling. A reflective man given to solemn worship and glorification discovers and sees to a degree the certain, truly existent worship and glorification of beings, while a person who abandons worship through either neglect or denial sees beings in a manner totally contrary and opposed to the reality of their perfections, thus transgressing their rights.

    Furthermore, since the one who gives up prayer does not own himself, he wrongs his own soul, which is a slave of its True Owner. His Owner delivers awesome threats in order to protect His slave’s rights from his evil-commanding soul. Also, since he has given up worship, which is the result of his creation and the aim of his nature, it is like an act of aggression against Divine wisdom and dominical will, and he therefore receives punishment.

    I n S h o r t : The abandoner of worship both wrongs his own soul, which is the slave and totally owned property of Almighty God, and wrongs and transgresses the rights of the perfections of the universe. Certainly, just as unbelief is an insult to beings, so is the abandonment of worship a denial of the universe’s perfections. And since it is an act of aggression against Divine wisdom, it is deserving of awesome threats, and severe punishment.

    Thus, it is to express this deservedness and the above facts that the Qur’an of Miraculous Exposition chooses in a miraculous way that severe style, which, in complete conformity with the principles of eloquence, corresponds to the requirements of the situation.

    With our best wishes…
