Proofs from the Holy Quran of the Existence of God — A Summary of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s Arguments

Edited and translated by Imam Kalamazad Mohammed

Proof 12

There is a logical and coherent system operating in the management of the world. For example, the sun gives light and thereby the crops are ripened; the moon also works as a lantern in the night; water quenches thirst, etc. In short, all things in nature serve to benefit man and from this we can make three inferences:

  1. Firstly, it can be said that all this happens by chance, but this is clearly erroneous, for if that were so, that would mean that sometimes things will happen and sometimes not.
  2. Secondly, we may conclude that everything in the world works at its own discretion and volition. That will mean, however, that we will be forced to accept that there is a plurality of gods instead of One.
  3. The third way to explain this harmonious system is to concede that these things do not happen by chance or by self-volition, but instead, everything in nature operates under the guidance of a powerful Sovereign.
