“Badi”, is one of the names of Almighty Allah. It means “HE WHO CREATES UNIQUE AND ASTONISHING WORLDS.”
Some people are unable to grasp this almighty title of our Lord’s. Others ignore it, despite having understood it. They seek ways of denial. Allah describes the situation of such people in verses:
And they repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in spite of their own certainty about them. See the final fate of the corrupters. (Surat an-Naml, 14)
Mankind! An example has been made, so listen to it carefully. Those whom you call upon besides Allah are not even able to create a single fly, even if they were to join together to do it. And if a fly steals something from them, they cannot get it back. How feeble are both the seeker and the sought! They do not measure Allah with His true measure. Allah is All-Strong, Almighty. (Surat al-Hajj, 73-74)
Those who are unable to properly appreciate Allah’s might constantly fall into the same error. Instead of producing evidence to support their own claims (as they do not actually possess one shred of evidence to support those claims), they presume to look for flaws in our Lord’s wondrous and sublime Creation (surely Allah is beyond that). The people who do this are generally atheists and Darwinists who set out with the aim of denying Allah. With the advent of the 21st century, Darwinists experienced the worst defeat in their 150-year history. It was in this century that the whole world realized that there are millions of proofs of Creation BUT NOT A SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE FOR EVOLUTION. People have learned during these years that they have been deceived ever since school. They have encountered real scientific evidence for the first time and seen that all the more than 250 million glorious fossils all point to the fact of Creation.
This great defeat has inspired such panic and despair among Darwinists that the adherents of evolution have sought to retrieve the situation with a counter-attack based on lies and deceit. Programs about evolution on the television and Darwinist journals try to neutralize their defeat by constantly raising the same subject. What they maintain is this: that living things are not flawless.
It will be of use to repeat one very important point that we have already set out many times in the past: of course living things are not flawless. But what Darwinists refuse to understand is this; in the same way that living things have been created with an extraordinarily complex and flawless perfection, the secrets of which human beings have not been able to unravel, so their flaws have also been specially created. By creating their imperfections, our Lord shows that He has the power to create whatever entity He wishes as flawless and as beautiful as he wishes. Flaws are a reminder that this world is a temporary place of test. By creating flaws, our Lord shows that the life of this world is not the true aim of life, and that perfection exists only in the Hereafter, in Paradise. Allah, Who flawlessly creates ever more glorious worlds with an extraordinary perfection and beauty, has of course the power create all things equally flawless. Because Almighty Allah is the Lord of all the worlds, and flawless creation belongs to Him alone. His artistry is breathtaking, and full of glory.
If human beings were created perfect in this world they could never know the secret of the test, or that they had to be the servants of Allah, and would never strive to earn His approval and Paradise. This world would suffice for someone possessed of perfections in it, and no longing for the Hereafter would ever arise. There is a special wisdom in the way that although many living things are never with disease, are highly resistant to even the most extraordinary conditions, and that flowers smell lovely wherever they are, while none of these things develop to perfection in human beings. People draw closer to Allah by seeing their own weaknesses; they see the true nature of the life of this world and strive to draw closer to Him in order to attain the Paradise created by Allah, the sole Lord of all perfection. People who know their weaknesses do not become proud and arrogant (surely Allah is beyond that). It is certain that Almighty Allah, Lord of the Worlds, will create every entity in the most perfect, flawless and immaculate form in the Hereafter. That Creation will of course take place by Almighty Allah simply telling them to “Be!” As our Lord says in the Qur’an:
Have they not seen how Allah brings Creation out of nothing, then reproduces it? That is easy for Allah. Say: “Travel about the earth and see how He brought Creation out of nothing. Then later Allah will bring about the next existence. Allah has power over all things.” (Surat al-‘Ankabut, 19-20)
Since Darwinists are unaware of this great truth, they make themselves ridiculous by coming up with the most nonsensical claims. Of course, they themselves are perfectly well aware that these claims are untrue and invalid. They themselves witness Allah’s immaculate creative artistry. But their lack of a single piece of scientific evidence, their helpless position and the panic caused by their defeat impel them to offer such forced and nonsensical statements.
Adnan Oktar Has Discussed the Wisdom behind Human Imperfections:
PRESENTER: Yes, we have a question. “We look at the plants and animals in nature, and they are always perfectly clean, despite living in mud and earth and being unable to wash with soap, but human beings are not like that. Why is it that man has been created with such weakness, despite being a more important and complex life form?” …
ADNAN OKTAR: The weaker people are, the more perfect the test, and the more it draws them closer to Allah. For example, if Allah so wished he could make human beings’ breath as delightful as flowers. He could make our breath smell like flowers or roses.
Allah could have bestowed the force in the rose to human beings’ breath. Our breath could have smelled of roses. We might have had no need to wash, and could have remained spotless all the time. Or we could have stayed stainless like steel. But Allah did this on purpose. Note how there are imperfections everywhere in the human body. The ear has one weakness, the eye another, and they have all been specially created. I was walking past a perfumery one day and thought to myself what a lot of scents and perfumes and various substances there were.
Allah create them in tiny glass bottles and packaged them up, and that is how He shows them to us in our brains.
Had He so wished, Allah could also have created such perfumes in our bodies. But He did not. He did exactly the opposite. Allah could produce a lovely scent in the arm pit, if He so wished. Because He creates delightful aromas in all plants, in the weakest tulip, the carnation or the violet. But Allah has deliberately not done that, so that people should long for Paradise. Otherwise, there would have been the risk of our not longing for Paradise. The more people see their own imperfections, so their desire for Paradise will grow. Because we have an idea of perfect music in our minds, yet we can never find it.
ADNAN OKTAR: We constantly buy CDs and tapes, but we can never find the music we seek. Neither can we find the scent we seek.
ADNAN OKTAR: That is in our subconscious. There is a perfect house, for example. But if we go to a palace we do not like it, and we say, “I wish we could go home.” Don’t we?
ADNAN OKTAR: We do not like any of them in that sense. Because since we have been created for Paradise that idea of Paradise and eternity is a very powerful instinct in our subconscious. The instinct for eternal life is the most instinct in human beings, and the only one that cannot be satisfied. It is an instinct bestowed because it cannot be satisfied. We are given the instinct to eat, and that is satisfied. They are all satisfied, with the exception of the instinct for eternal life. Just think what people would do if they thought they would never die, despite the brevity of this life. (From Adnan Oktar’s interview on Kanal 35 TV on 18 January, 2009…)
Have they not reflected within themselves? Allah did not create the heavens and the Earth and everything between them except with truth and for a fixed term. Yet many people reject the meeting with their Lord. (Surat ar-Rum, 8)
