“We have brought before them the truth, and there is no doubt that they are lying. Never did Allah take unto Himself any son, nor is there any god beside Him. (Had there been any other gods) each god would have taken his creatures away with him, and each would have rushed to overpower the other. Glory to Allah from all that they characterise Him with!”
(Al-Qur’ān – 23:90-91)
The unbelievers’ assertion that aught other than the One True God partakes of Divinity (that is, shares with God any of His attributes or authority, or His rights vis-a-vis His creatures) is a lie. They also lie when they say that there will be no After-Life. This can even be shown to be so by virtue of their own statements. For, on the one hand, they themselves concede that God is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and that He has absolute control over everything in the universe. On the other, they contend that godhead is not exclusively God’s but rests with others too – with those who are bound to be His creatures and servants and, thus, under His omnipotent control.
The same applies to the unbelievers’ contention regarding the After-Life. On the one hand, they concede that God has created both human beings and this enormous universe. On the other, they contend that God is unable to resurrect those whom He once created. Such an assertion is most patently irrational. Thus, both their doctrines, polytheism and denial of the After-Life, are altogether inconsistent with their own stated positions.
