One thousand years ago, no one could imagine that there could ever be created a device by humans that could perform calculations, organize data, make long distance communication a possibility and even point out mistakes of humans themselves. And yet, today every other person owns a laptop and hardly anyone can imagine their life without a smartphone.
However, despite all the development in technology and despite the advanced efficiency of the brain of computers, no one can claim that they come at par with the human brain.
Nor does anyone ever believe the camera lens to be equal to human eye. Although the camera lens captures the most intricate details of the scene, enhances colours and tones and even adjusts the lighting of the environment, it still cannot do what the human eye can.
If you take an aerial view, you’ll come to realize that humans, computer and the camera, all are created after all. Humans are created by God and computer and the camera are created by humans. If we say God is the Creator and all else is creation then in short, they all (humans, computers, cameras) are creation of God. But even then there is no comparison of one creation (humans) with the other creation (computers & cameras).
How strange is it then that a comparison is made between the Creator and creation? Not only is it strange but absurd and illogical as well. How can purely human traits be in God and how can God not do what humans can’t? It doesn’t even make sense. Which is why the Creator does not approve of any such false statements.
And this is what the Creator, Allah says Himself as we find in Sahih Bukhari, 3193:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Allah the Most Superior said, “The son of Adam slights Me, and he should not slight Me, and he disbelieves in Me, and he ought not to do so. As for his slighting Me, it is that he says that I have a son; and his disbelief in Me is his statement that I shall not recreate him as I have created (him) before.”
May Allah make us see the truth and follow the truth only. Ameen.
