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

In our everyday experience we see that the more man is acquainted with the components and composition of a particular thing, the greater will be his knowledge of predicting its future course. For example, a watchmaker makes a watch. As he has good knowledge of its parts and make-up, he can predict with a great degree of confidence how long the watch will last. However, as man is not his own creator, he does not possess perfect knowledge of the various elements of his body and the true value of the existing objects in the world and so he does not have knowledge of what will happen to himself or to anything in the future.

Thus, if there is anyone who has knowledge of the future, then it will certainly be the Creator of the world, that is, God. Allah, Most High, sent His messengers to the world (for man, being man, does not know what the future holds). As a result, the Most High God discloses to him news of future events as the Holy Quran informs us:

The Knower of the unseen, so He makes His secrets known to none, Except a messenger whom He chooses. For surely He makes a guard to go before him and after him” (72:26–27).

By this method, Allah, Most High, proves that He exists. We must always bear in mind the announcement of the Holy Prophet (sas) fourteen hundreds years ago:

But this day We shall save thee in thy body that thou mayest be a sign to those after thee….” (10:92).

This is the promise that Allah, Most High, made to Pharaoh when he was about to be drowned.

It is interesting to note that the Torah states unambiguously that Pharaoh and all his chariots sank beneath the sea like a stone. The Holy Quran contradicts this and said that Pharaoh’s body would be preserved. Thus, the discovery of his mummified body in the present age in which we live provides indubitable testimony of the existence of God.

Similarly, the eclipse of the moon and the sun in the month of Ramadan on the thirteenth and twenty-eight days clearly testifies to the truth of the Imam Mahdi. Further, the fact that this sign was fulfilled to the letter in the time of the Mujaddid, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib, in the year 1894 AD provides conclusive proof of the existence of God and the truth of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib.
