Salam I've heard something along the lines of this for as to why god must be infinite If this uncaused cause was finite then that means, that it's sustenance cannot be itself. All creation can't sustain itself it requires an external source to sustain itself. For example your lungs might internally sustain you but you need an external source (oxygen) to sustain those internal sources.If the uncaused cause is finite then it needs something else to constantly sustain it. All finite things come to an end.However this uncaused cause cannot be sustained by something else, otherwise it is not the uncaused cause. Hence the uncaused cause must be infinite in power in order to sustain itself internally. If this uncaused cause is infinite in power then it is omnipotent and hence it is god. Finally, this uncaused cause must transcend all. Something that bought something else into existence must transcend its creation. If it was confined by the same abilities as the thing it creates, then it cannot create creation as it becomes creation since it is confined to the dimension of which it creates. The fact that this uncaused cause is prior to time space mass and energy shows that it transcends everything that exists and hence it is the one and truly transcendent being. Also from a physics standpoint I believe that only an infinite being can expand something infinitely small (or nothingness) into something. Do you acknowledge the fact that the universe was infinitely small at one time and hence in order for the uncaused cause to expand from an infinitely small point (Big Bang) He has to be infinitely powerful. Can someone critique these and add more points as to why god must be omnipotent @Enlightened Follower @Abu-Jafar Herz@.InshAllah.
In The Name of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. This is an interesting document on theology: http://www.scribd.com/doc/75311059/A-Short-Discourse-on-the-Unlimited-One dealing with three issues: God and His Attributes; God and Time; God and Omnipresence. NOTE: It is written by an amateur and NOT a Shia scholar so NOT everything in the book may be sanctioned by Shias and believed by them. Also, even though the result he tries to bring may be in line with the Shiite beliefs but his methodology and his way of reasoning - how he reaches this result - may NOT be agreed to by Shias. May Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, bless us all, our families and our loved ones. May He guide us all to The Straight Path with His Perfect Guidance and may He, The Forgiver of Sins, The Oft Forgiving forgive all our sins for, indeed, there is neither any refuge nor any respite for the sinners except in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì.
