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 13

There are two propositions to consider: either the world came into being all by itself or there is a Maker. If we accept the first supposition, then one will be in error, for to come into being from a state of non-existence constitutes an action and for every action there must be a Doer Who definitely has to be in existence before the action is initiated. So, if the world is responsible for bringing itself into being, then one will have to conclude that the world existed before it came into being, which is a patently absurd proposition. We are left, therefore, with no other recourse but to conclude that Someone brought the world into being from nothingness, and that Someone we call God.
