Quran was revealed to Mohammed through the Angel Gabriel from the God who described Himself in Quran as the owner of Wisdom and science:
Lo! As to thee (Mohammad), the Qur'an is bestowed upon thee from the presence of One who is Aware of All Wisdom (Logic) and sciences
So, we find Quran is the logical word that gives the logical proof of truth of such belief in One God and in the Day of Resurrection in addition to trust the Religion of Islam.
In the following successive verses (59- 64) from one of the chapters of the Holy Quran, Al-Naml, you will find how these logical questions are casted in a miraculous and logical series of questions to prove the Oneness of God. However, you will find such sequence starts by the following question to think over your gifted logical abilities:
(Who) is Real? Allah as the logical God or any false god (as the nature, the physical matter, or a dead son) may be associated with Him ?
Then, you will get to five exciting proofs of the illogic of the claim of those who assigned for themselves materialistic gods or idols. You will read at the end of each proof this repeated logical-comment or question:
Can there be another god besides Allah (as that the other claims; i.e. as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, matter, nature, etc.) [60, 61, 62, 63, 64]?
At the end of such miraculous series of logical questions, you will get from God, who gifted you a mind, the following instruction to fulfill:
Bring forth a Logical Proof for Your Claims if you feel you have the truth ?
Now, let us read the English translation of such logical questions as translated by three different translators
These are the Questions. Thinking as humans who have a human mind and logic, the only logical answer of these questions should be as follows:
No; the universe that we live in should be owned, created, controlled and sustained by only One God who sent these logical questions and finely tuned our life and the life of this universe to his obedience and recognition.
Now; let us try to find the logical answer for each of the questions found in these verses:
Any fair person who is not deviated from the straight path should recognize such fine tuning of the whole universe that is surely designed by a Very Wise God to adopt us and the other the living creatures to live inside it. Such unique system that has a unity of design, objective and control represents a sufficient proof of the Oneness and Wisdom of the Creator. The wisely designed water cycle that gives the rain to help the seeds to germinate and grow into a tree of well-laid-out garden of beauty and delight cannot be designed by nature. The adjusted dose of the sun's radiation that keeps us alive and keeps the sustainability of water, plants and all other resources in such conserved form is designed, estimated and controlled in highly scientific way. The sun's radiation helps the water to evaporate from the salt seas and form clouds that are driven to fill the rivers. Such systems are surely designed, created and controlled by One Great God. No one could think also such marvellous gardens to grow up by itself without the Will, Science and Art of One Great God. Such design and arrangements are beyond the man's power or any other materialistic power.
Any one who has scientific knowledge should see that our earth, as a planet, is distinguished by certain features that are not found in any other planet. This question is as a brain storm which obliged us to think such features of the earth that makes it suitable for our life. The Earth is located the right distance from the sun. Consider the temperature swings we encounter, roughly – 20 degrees to 48 degrees. If the Earth were at greater distance from the sun, we would all freeze. Any closer and we would burn up. Even a fractional variance in the Earth's position to the sun would make life on Earth impossible. The Earth remains this perfect distance from the sun while it rotates around the sun at a speed of nearly 67,000 mph. It is also rotating on its axis, allowing the entire surface of the Earth to be properly warmed and cooled every day. If we assume an increase of the time of rotation, the results will be burning of half of earth that faces the sun and freeze of the other half that is in the opposite side. The percentage of the water surface and the continent surface is finely tuned to allow formation of clouds and adjust other tuned parameters.
Formation and supply of rivers is surely done by Wisdom and Control of great Creator. The collection of clouds in selected points in the sky to supply the rivers by great quantity of water to form them in specific time every year is not a problem of chance. It is the Will of God to sustain the life on the sides of the rivers and build intended societies. Such Will is expressed in Quran by specific words; made rivers (of fresh water) to flow through it;
God set in the earth settlements that determine its gravity that suits its size. Such size and gravity holds our bodies and our means of life to move on the earth freely. Such gravity holds a thin layer of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending about 50 miles above the Earth's surface. If Earth were smaller, a new atmosphere would exist and will be impossible to accommodate our life, like the planet Mercury. If Earth were larger, its atmosphere would contain free hydrogen, like Jupiter. Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human life. It is also the only known planet equipped by water in the three phases to survive our life and the life of animals and plants.
And our moon is the perfect size and distance from the Earth for its gravitational pull. The moon creates important ocean tides and movement so ocean waters do not stagnate, and yet our massive oceans are restrained from spilling over across the continents. The best logical comment for this question came at the end of this verse:
Can there be another god besides Allah (who can give the earth these features)?
Allah answers this comment by this logical sentence
Nay, most of them have lack of sciences (to be able to understand such scientific signs).
Any human feels weakness in certain times of his life. He feels the existence of a certain power that counts for him his deeds and that fairly weighs hem. Unconsciously, we ask such power to save us. If we were sincere in our demand, our sufferings are ended our demands are responded and get superiority over those who terrify us. Looking to the history, you shall find how God saved those who were truly his followers. In Mohamed's times, God helped the Muslims to spread their religion all over the world in few years. God helps his followers to be real inheritors of the earth. The history is a sufficient proof for who search how God saved His followers. Then, this question is followed by a logical comment for those who forget the God's favors:
(Can there be another) god besides Allah? Little it is that ye remember!
The answer should be: No; there is no God but Allah. He is the Merciful God who saves us in the hard times if we ask Him faithfully. However, our human arrogance makes us forget the mercy of God and illogically deny His favor after passing each critical situation.
All of us, specially the believers, feel God's guidance that leads us to the right path when we are lost. As the stars and the moon-light guide us in the dark nights on earth, sea or air, the God's light and guidance shines our way in the hard times. These are the feelings of those who trust God and follow His orders. Similarly, wind is used in the sky to guide or derive the clouds to rain in special in special locations of the earth. It is used to sail the ships in seas and oceans. It is used to grind grains and generate power. Such harmony of guidance, moon, stars, winds, clouds, rains and rivers cannot be arranged, created, organized and sustained with more than one God. So, the logical end of this verse is:
Exalted by Allah above what they associate (with Him)
Yes, logically Allah who harmonizes all these elements is above their claimed nature, son, idols or crosses.
Scientists discovered by logic there is a start of creation in a moment called "Big Bang." Some claimed without any logical proof this start happened without the Will of God. Logically, it is impossible for such marvellous start of this unique universe which is surely built by One Hand to be a Godless start. Scientists predicted also the end of universe in a moment they call it "Big Crunch." In this moment, the metric expansion of the space eventually reverses and the universe collapse for an ultimate fate. Logically, according to scientific theories and according to this verse, the universe recollapses or another universe will be started with another big bang. Can any wise man think such universe had started by itself and will restart as the Quran states and the science predicts by itself once more?
In the second of this verse we find a logical question of how our Sustenance of rains, resources, money, luck or destiny is arranged for each of us. Who looks to such Sustenance will find that this sustenance is fairly gifted to those who deserved it according to fair and logic rules. No one can find any logic to assume such fair rules are decided without the Will of Fair God who has one of His Names: The Justice.
The Logical end of this verse and these verses is:
All the arguments point to the Unity of Allah: there is none whatever against it. Now, Have You a Poof for an Opposite Claim?
Of course, it is impossible for humans as owners of logic and minds to think any assumption without a proof. God states five proofs for His Uniqueness. If you have any point that may violate such fact submit it. Otherwise; you should be a Muslim who trusts his simple belief in One God and a Day of Resurrection.Just that is the Islam with No Dogmas, No Inheritance, No Mediators, and No great sins.
