Allah is the Giver of Life
Have you ever been asked this question?
Which one comes first the chicken or the egg?
The chicken comes from egg. the egg comes from chicken.
And where do chicken comes from?
Allah created it out of nothing!
And He creates it, and Give life to it.
He is the Giver of Life.
Remember when you were looking at my pictures when I was young and you asked me why you are not in the picture? I answered because you were not born yet. And you went on asking where you were..
And now you are born and living in this world. Allah created you and gave you life and with His will you love in this world.
He is Al Muhyi – The Giver of Life.
Giving life to Barren earth
Al Fussilat 41:39
And among His Signs (in this), that you see the earth barren, but when We send down water (rain) to it, it is stirred to life and growth (of vegetations). Verily, He Who gives it life, surely is Able to give life to the dead (on the Day of Resurrection). Indeed! He is Able to do all things. (39)
Ar Rum 30:50
Look then at the effects (results) of Allâh’s Mercy, how He revives the earth after its death. Verily, that (Allâh) (Who revived the earth after its death) shall indeed raise the dead (on the Day of Resurrection), and He is Able to do all things. (50)
Life After death
Al Baqarah 2:28
How can you disbelieve in Allâh? Seeing that you were dead and He gave you life. Then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life (on the Day of Resurrection) and then unto Him you will return. (See V.40:1) (28)
Allah Gives Life
Al Aaraf 7:158
Say (O Muhammad SAW): “O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allâh — to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He); It is He Who gives life and causes death.
Al Hijr 15:23
And certainly We! We it is Who give life, and cause death, and We are the Inheritors. (23)
Al Hadid 57:2
His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, It is He Who gives life and causes death; and He is Able to do all things. (2)
Al Mu’minoon 23:80
And it is He Who gives life and causes death, and His is the alternation of night and day. Will you not then understand? (80)
And as you can read in the verses. Allah is not only the the Giver of life, He is also the Life taker. he can give you life and then give you death and then give you life again.
Al Mumit – The life taker.
These are a pair of Allah’s names that are opposites.
Al Muhyi AL Mumit
Al Mumit – Taker of Life
Now that you know Allah is the one who gives life and also the one who takes life, would you believe that any other power claim that they can do so?
When one is sick and has tried their means to heal and died, who are the one who takes the life away?
When you look around you and you notice that there are so much life, growing plants, frog eggs in the pond, insects eggs arranged neatly at the back of the leaves, newborn babies, reflect on who is the one who gives this life.
