Did Allah create heavens and the earth? If so then why is 'we' used in Quran instead of 'I'?

I lately heard Prophet(SAWA) and Moula Ali(a.s) created it?

Please share your views people.

Salam Allah is only creator but created heavens & earth from the light of PProphet(SAWA) and Moula Ali(a.s)

To 'Just a muslim'

I have heard this before that in royalty Allah uses 'we' for himself.

So why in Quran it states 'Nehnu Auliyakum' as 'auliya' is a plural of 'walli' and that would make it 'Nehnu walliyukum' but 'Nehnu Auliyakum' is mentioned.

'Nehnu Auliyakum' means 'we are you walli(s).A plural.

'Nehnu Walliyukum' means 'we are your walli. A singular'

Allah is saying 'Auliyakum' which means plural but Allah is one. So why is it being 'We are your Walli(s)' instead of 'I am your Walli' or 'We are your Walli'.

Surah 41

Ayah 31

because it is the rules of grammar. we cant use a plural pronoun and describe it by a singular noun. not in this case atleast. i dont know if you know arabic. if you do, then i can explain in more detail. if not, i can explain in layman terms. dont want to give the layman explanation to someone who knows arabic.

if you have any implications or claims regarding the use of plurals for the One God, please do mention them as well.
also, you can quote my comment. that way i will get a notification that you replied.

Thank you for making me understand on how to reply to a comment as I didn't know it because I am bit new to this website in terms of posting questions myself.

I used to read question and answers on this website.

I took your point and asked my wife to give me examples of plural pronouns and singular noun and she made me understand.

I already knew it in English this is how it is used but in Arabic it is the same rule, I didn't know it.

Thank you for informing this. Thank you for informing this. I myself do not know Arabic completely and I do try to learn it.

Can you tell me furthermore on 'Wallahu khair ur raazikeen'.

Rizk - Food we eat

Razzaq - Provider of rizk

Raazikeen - Food providers

'Allah is the best among all the providers of Food' (Most close and literal translation of the ayat)

So are there any other food providers than Allah among whom Allah is showing comparison to us?

And kindly brother please do give me more examples in 'layman terms' as well as in 'expert terms'.

if I understand your 'expert terms' explanation then I will understand that I am not in the layman category in regards to Arabic.

this question doesnt have much to do with arabic. others might answer this as well.

while it is true that Allah is the only one who truly provides, it is said that every person provides for those who are dependent on that person, by means of the provision given by Allah. such as a father providing for his family. so, i would say this is talking about it in that sense. one important thing to note, which may or may not be related to this, is that one of the names of Allah is Al-Razzaaq. razzaaq and raaziq are slightly different. razzaaq has more power in it, grammatically. raaziq is just someone who provides. the ayah in question speaks about the best of raaziqeen, plural of raaziq. and Allah knows best.

Brother Muslim,

But you see what I am not able to grasp here is, what I have always known is that we cannot call anyone as 'Razzaq' aur 'my raazik' except the almighty Allah. Right?

Now the point comes where in we have sources 'waseela' 'tawasul' that is in between us and Allah.

For example: Mothers are a waseela by Allah of food for babies and similarly fathers are a waseela too as they work and provide us food.

His job is a waseela for him of food, my job is a waseela for me and it goes on and on...

Now on the other hand let us imagine that Allah is saying this in comparison to others then this itself as per my understanding is falling under the category of 'shirk' as because we all know Allah is one and there is none like him and Allah does not need to compare himself with others to make us understand.

So are there any other powers providing Food? Which ofcourse cannot be greater than Allah.

Or is this ayat a complete different story than what is being informed to us by our so called ullemas or Quran interpreters?

Why am I thinking in so deep is because lately this has come into my ears that the actual author of Quran is not Allah instead it is Masoomeen(a.s) who are the real authors of Quran.

Please note I believe in Tawheed, Risalat and Wilayat so do not take me as Nusayri or Alawi and from where I heard this even they are not Nusayris or Alawis.

Salam Ahlulbayt (as) as Imam Ali (as) said are speaking Quran & they are minor siql & Holy Quran is major siql (Heavy weight) because all Muslims must accept Holy Quran revealed by Allah to prophet (pbu) but Ahlulbayt not accepted by all Muslims & they created by Allah but Quran is word of Allah so they can’t intervene to it & they are role model for following Quran thus only Allah have authority over all & they have authority over us by his permission.

with all due respect brother, i do not want to respond to this due to the mere absurdity, ignorance, kufr and jahalah of this claim, specially as it goes against the quran in so many places.

please note, i am not calling anyone a kaafir. just the statement a statement of kufr.

Salam Alaykom. Allah uses "we" in Quran because he has workers which are from his creation whether they were from the angels or human beings and they work by his might, power and command.

Imam Ali (a.s) (as) says,
· “I have raised the seven skies with the powers and commandments, entrusted to me by my Lord.
· I am the one who when looked at the skies, and did not find any one who can challenge me.
· I am the one who counts his creatures, even though they are numerous, and make sure they return back to their Lord.
· I am the trustee who protects divine commands.
· I do not treat anyone with unkindness, as I am the divine sustainer ‘Wali –Allah’.
· His commands have been entrusted upon me and I have been made ruler over the masses by my Lord.
· I am the one who called the moon and the sun and they moved forward in my obedience.
· I am the one who called upon ‘seven skies’ and they bow down on my instruction and stabilized in perfect posture.
· I am the one who nominated all the Prophets, created all the worlds and laid the earth down.
· I am aware of all those affairs which have been made compulsory.
· I am the Amr (command) of Allah and the ‘Soul’ of Allah, as Allah says: They ask you (O’Prophet) about the soul, you tell them that soul is from Allah’s Amr (command).
· I am the one about whom Allah has said to his Prophet, ‘Two of you will send each and every malicious non-believer to the hell fire.’
· I am the one who brought into existence everything, with the blessing of my Lord, after they were composed.

As mentioned above, such a statement is ghuluw (exaggeration of the attributes and status of the ma'soomeen) and should not be uttered by a true believer of tawheed. The only creator and author of the Qur'an is Allah. Anyone who says otherwise has deviated from the teachings of the ma'soomeen.

Brother

Exaggeration of masoomeen(a.s) statuses?

This is as per Quran

“Verily, the likeness of ‘Eesa (Jesus) before Allaah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: ‘Be!’ — and he was” 

[Aal ‘Imraan 3:59]

Ali(a.s) is Yadhullah, Ainullah, Asadullah, wajhullah and it goes on...

So since Ali (a.s) is the hand of Allah do we believe that Ali(a.s) created Adam(a.s)?

Brother honestly, There is nothing as such as exaggerating their status, the reason being is in order to exaggerate someone's status you have to know their limitations first and nobody knows the limit of Prophet Mohammad(saww) and Ali(a.s). No one knows their limit.

This is a report that is not even reliable, let alone can it even be ascertained to be reliable. This particular tradition seems to have probably come from the Ghulat, and extremists. Alarm bells need to be ringing when reading things like this. I was actually eating when i read this and it ruined my appetite. 

Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 126 : Ali (as) said: “With regard to me, two categories of people will be ruined, namely he who loves me too much (extremists) and the love takes him away from rightfulness, and he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness. The best man with regard to me is he who is on the middle course."

 

حمدويه، قال حدثنا يعقوب، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن شعيب، عن أبي بصير، قال : قلت لأبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) إنهم يقولون قال و ما يقولون قلت يقولون تعلم قطر المطر و عدد النجوم و ورق الشجر و وزن ما في البحر و عدد التراب، فرفع يده إلى السماء، و قال سبحان الله سبحان الله لا و الله ما يعلم هذا إلا الله
532. Hamdawayh who said: narrated to us Ya’qub from Ibn Abi Umayr from Shuayb from Abi Basir who said: I said to Abi Abdillah عليه السلام – they do say, he said: and what do they say? I said: they say that you know the number of the drops in the rain, and the number of the stars, and the number of leaves in all the trees, and the weight of what is in the ocean, and the number of sand particles, so he عليه السلام raised his hand to the sky and said: praise be to Allah, praise be to Allah, no by Allah, no one knows this except for Allah.

 

 


حدثني الحسين بن الحسن بن بندار القمي، قال حدثني سعد بن عبد الله بن أبي خلف، قال حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن يعقوب بن يزيد و محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، قال حدثنا بعض أصحابنا، قال : قلت لأبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) زعم أبو هارون المكفوف أنك قلت له إن كنت تريد القديم فذاك لا يدركه أحد و إن كنت تريد الذي خلق و رزق فذاك محمد بن علي فقال كذب علي عليه لعنة الله و الله ما من خالق إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، حق على الله أن يذيقنا الموت و الذي لا يهلك هو الله خالق الخلق بارئ البرية

398. Narrated to me al-Husayn bin al-Hasan bin Bundar al-Qummiy who said: narrated to me Sa’d bin Abdallah bin Abi al-Khalaf who said: narrated to us Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa from Ya’qub bin Yazid AND Muhammad bin Isa bin Ubayd from Muhammad bin Abi Umayr who said: narrated to us one of our companions who said: I said to Abi Abdillah عليه السلام - Abu Harun – the blind one – claims that you said to him – 'if you want the Eternal then no one can perceive him, but if you want the one who creates and gives out sustenance then he is Muhammad bin Ali عليه السلام', so he عليه السلام said: he has lied upon me, may Allah curse him, by Allah there is no creator except for Allah, Alone, without any partner, it is Allah’s right over us to make us taste death, and the one who does not perish is Allah, the creator of the creations, and the maker of the maked ones.

 

 

 


حدثني محمد بن قولويه، قال حدثني سعد بن عبد الله، قال حدثنا يعقوب بن يزيد و محمد بن عيسى، عن علي بن مهزيار، عن فضالة بن أيوب الأزدي، عن أبان بن عثمان، قال : سمعت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول لعن الله عبد الله بن سبإ إنه ادعى الربوبية في أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) و كان و الله أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) عبدا لله طائعا، الويل لمن كذب علينا و إن قوما يقولون فينا ما لا نقوله في أنفسنا، نبرأ إلى الله منهم نبرأ إلى الله منهم
 

172. Narrated to us Muhammad bin Qulawayh who said: narrated to me Sa’d bin Abdallah who said: narrated to us Ya’qub bin Yazid AND Muhammad bin Isa from Ali bin Mahziyar from Fadhala bin Ayyub al-Azdiy from Aban bin Uthman who said: I heard Aba Abdillah عليه السلام say: may Allah curse Abdallah bin Saba, he claimed divinity for Amir al-Mu’minin, and Amir al-Mu’minin was by Allah an obedient slave, woe be upon the one who lies upon us, there is a group that says about us what we do not say about ourselves, we disassociate to Allah from them, we disassociate to Allah from them.

 

إبراهيم بن محمد بن العباس، قال حدثني أحمد بن إدريس القمي، عن حمدان بن سليمان، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن ابن فضال، عن أبي المغراء، عن عنبسة، قال، : قال أبو عبد الله (عليه السلام) لقد أمسينا و ما أحد أعدى لنا ممن ينتحل مودتنا
 

555. Ibrahim bin Muhammad bin al-Abbas who said: narrated to me Ahmad bin Idris al-Qummiy from Hamdan bin Sulayman from Muhammad bin al-Husayn from Ibn Fadhal from Abi al-Maghra from Anbasa who said: Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: we have woken up (i.e. a time has reached) and there is no one who is more inimical (and enemy to us) than those who claim to love us.

NOTE: The Imam is referring to the Ghulat who exaggerated their status and nullified their activities of guiding the believers and protecting Islam.

 

حدثني محمدبن مسعود، قال: حدثني أبوعبدالله الحسين بن أشكيب قال: حدثني محمدبن أورمه، عن الحسين بن سعيد، قال: حدثني علي بن النعمان، عن ابن مسكان، عن ضريس، قال قال لي أبوخالد الكابلي: أما أني سأحدثك بحديث ان رأيتموه وأنا حي فقلت صدقني، وان مت قبل أن تراه ترحمت علي ودعوت لي سمعت علي بن الحسين عليه السلام يقول: ان اليهود أحبوا عزيزا حتى قالوا فيه ماقالوا فلا عزيز منهم ولاهم من عزيز، وأن النصارى أحبوا عيسى حتى قالوا فيه ماقالوا، فلا عيسى منهم ولاهم من عيسى وانا على سنة من ذلك ان قوما من شيعتنا سيحبونا حتى يقولوا فينا ماقالت اليهود في عزيز، وماقالت النصارى في عيسى بن مريم، فلاهم منا ولا نحن منهم

191. Narrated to me Muhammad b. Masud who said: narrated to me Abu Abdallah al-Husayn b. Ushkayb who said: narrated to me Muhammad b. Awrama from al-Husayn b.

Maryam, so they are not from us, nor are we from them.

 

 

 

 

Brother Resistance

Nehj ul israr, you are denying it's authenticity under what authority?

Nehj ul balagha is more reliable comparatively, under what/whose confirmation?

And brother what difference would it bring to the supremacy of Allah even if those claims are for real? Like Ali(a.s) created earth and heavens?

Can't this be his duty of Ali(a.s) given by the almighty Allah?

Allah can do whatever he wants whenever and where ever, Let's not limit Allah just because we have limited mentality.

He is the owner brother of everything that exists including our beloved Prophet(SAWW) and Moula Ali(a.s). Allah can assign anyone for any task any time he wishes. Allah is the master and rest are his slaves. Ali(a.s) is an abd(slave) and Allah is his ma'bud.

Please don't associate mainstream Shia Islam with Nusayri-boderline Ghulat. These people are like the cancer of our Madhab, they are to us what ISIS/Al Nusra/ et al are to Salafis.

Surah Al-Isra, Verse 110:
قُلِ ادْعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمَٰنَ أَيًّا مَّا تَدْعُوا فَلَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ

And before you present anything ridiculous, I would like to quote some words from munajaat of Imam Ali (asws):

Mowlaya Ya Mowla

Ant'Ar-Rehman, wa ana'l marhoom, wa hal yarhamul marhooma ill'ar-Rehman.

Master O my Master, You are "Ar-Rehman" and I am marhoom, and who else can have mercy on marhoom except Ar-Rehman?

And these verses:

Surah Maryam, Verse 87:
لَّا يَمْلِكُونَ الشَّفَاعَةَ إِلَّا مَنِ اتَّخَذَ عِندَ الرَّحْمَٰنِ عَهْدًا

They shall not control intercession, save he who has made a covenant with the Beneficent Allah.
(English - Shakir)

Surah Maryam, Verse 88:
وَقَالُوا اتَّخَذَ الرَّحْمَٰنُ وَلَدًا

And they say: The Beneficent Allah has taken (to Himself) a son.
(English - Shakir)

Surah Maryam, Verse 90:
تَكَادُ السَّمَاوَاتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْهُ وَتَنشَقُّ الْأَرْضُ وَتَخِرُّ الْجِبَالُ هَدًّا

The heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces,
(English - Shakir)

Surah Maryam, Verse 91:
أَن دَعَوْا لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ وَلَدًا

That they ascribe a son to the Beneficent Allah.
(English - Shakir)

Surah Maryam, Verse 92:
وَمَا يَنبَغِي لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ أَن يَتَّخِذَ وَلَدًا

And it is not worthy of the Beneficent Allah that He should take (to Himself) a son.
(English - Shakir)

Surah Maryam, Verse 93:
إِن كُلُّ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِلَّا آتِي الرَّحْمَٰنِ عَبْدًا

There is no one in the heavens and the earth but will come to the Beneficent Allah as a servant.

Did Allah create heavens and the earth? If so then why is 'we' used in Quran instead of 'I'?

All I have understood by the usage of 'we' in quran is.

1. For the purpose of Allah's glorification which is totally correct as in Arabic, English and Urdu 'we' is used for 'highness'.

2. 'We' is mentioned at times on places where it includes Allah and some other creature, it could be the Angel Jibrael(a.s), Prophet Muhammad(SAWW) or his Aal(a.s), but ofcourse in Allah's supervision only.

As we know Allah is 'ahad' yet we know that he takes work from his creature as per his will.

As per my information Allah alone is the creator.

46:33 Do they not see that Allah, the One who created the heavens and
the earth and was not tired by their creation, is able to give life to
the dead? Yes, indeed, He has power over everything.

Singular and plural pronouns both have been used, see below.

For some creations/work, Allah must have used some of his esteemed(a.s) creatures for it.

1 – Surat Al-Teen: “We have indeed created man in the best of moulds.” [95:04]

(See here Allah says 'we' in terms of human creation and Imam Ali(a.s) says that it is him who moulded Adam's(a.s) mud.

By the order of Allah ofcourse.

2 – Surat Al-Anbiyya: “And We made the sky a protected ceiling, but they, from its signs, are turning away.” [21:32]

3 – Surat Al-Hijr: “Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. [15:09]

4 – Surat Al-An’am: “And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees – of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.” [6:99]

وَهُوَ الَّذِي يَبْدَأُ الْخَلْقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُ وَهُوَ أَهْوَنُ عَلَيْهِ ۚ وَلَهُ الْمَثَلُ الْأَعْلَىٰ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيم

 

It is HU who manifests creation and then repeats it! And that is easy 

for Him (to do)! And to Him belongs the greatest examples in the heavens 

and the earth. HU is the Aziz, the Hakim.

 

Surah Ar-Rum (30:27)

 

أَوَلَيْسَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بِقَادِرٍ عَلَىٰ أَنْ يَخْلُقَ مِثْلَهُمْ ۚ بَلَىٰ وَهُوَ الْخَلَّاقُ الْعَلِيمُ

 

Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them? Yes! HU is the Khallaq, the Aleem.

Surah Ya Sin (36:81)

 

Allah has got infinite names (modes). He creates with many names (modes) like Aziz ,Hakim, Khallaq, Alim  as you can see in above sura.

 That is why "We" used in Quran instead of "I".
