In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

He is the One who initiates and repeats

[59:24] He is the One GOD; the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer. To Him belong the most beautiful names. Glorifying Him is everything in the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

God reminds us in Quran that among His signs of infinite mercy and power is that He REPEATS His creation, constantly, in addition to initiating it. The precise balance(15:19-21) of all the seen and unseen creatures committed in the service of humans (31:20), necessitates the repetition of the creation. As long as souls are brought back to life on earth to use their last chance of redemption, God will continue to REPEAT His creation and maintain that accurate balance.

[10:4] To Him is your ultimate return, all of you. This is GOD's truthful promise. He initiates the creation, then repeats it, in order to reward those who believe and lead a righteous life, equitably. As for those who disbelieve, they incur hellish drinks, and a painful retribution for their disbelieving.

Study the Origin of Life [29:19] Have they not seen how GOD initiates the creation, then repeats it? This is easy for GOD to do.

Repeating the creation has been always a difficult concept for the majority that questions the Hereafter. God creates whatever He wills whenever He wills and also repeats His creation precisely whenever He wills and according to His predetermined plans:

[36:77] Does the human being not see that we created him from a tiny drop, then he turns into an ardent enemy?
[36:78] He raises a question to us - while forgetting his initial creation - "Who can resurrect the bones after they had rotted?"
[36:79] Say, "The One who initiated them in the first place will resurrect them. He is fully aware of every creation."
[36:81] Is not the One who created the heavens and the earth able to recreate the same? Yes indeed; He is the Creator, the Omniscient.
[36:82] All He needs to do to carry out any command is to say to it, "Be," and it is.

[56:47] They said, "After we die and turn to dust and bones, we get resurrected?
[56:48] "Does this include our forefathers?"

[23:34] "If you obey a human being like you, then you are really losers.
[23:35] "Does he promise you that, after you die and turn into dust and bones, you will come out again?
[23:36] "Impossible, impossible indeed is what is promised to you.

[46:33] Do they not realize that GOD, who created the heavens and the earth without the least effort, is able to revive the dead? Yes indeed; He is Omnipotent.

The balanced repetition of creation also includes the sophisticated regeneration of the cells within the same species during its life span. This is a fact of both living and sustenance. As an example, in the human species, our blood cells, manufactured in our bone marrows, have a specific and limited life span and it is a fact that new ones have to be constantly recreated every single second. There is 2.5 millions of red blood cells (only one kind of our blood cells) to be produced every second to maintain a satisfied level in our blood since the average life span of every cell is only about 120 days. This is necessary to maintain a 2.5 trillion balance at any moment. Another example is that the cells of our 100,000 taste buds on our tongue are constantly being renewed every ten hours roughly. We shed about 40 pounds of skin cells in average life time and new ones are constantly recreated. The same mechanism goes basically with all of our tissue cells at different rates. Considering all our body tissues, 25,000,000 new cells are being recreated or regenerated by God Almighty per second. Any minor imbalance of this process, result in health disorders of various intensities.

[30:27] And He is the One who initiates the creation, then repeats it; this is even easier for Him. To Him belongs the most sublime similitude, in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

[51:21] And within yourselves; can you see?

[77:19] Woe on that day to the rejectors.
[77:20] Did we not create you from a lowly liquid?
[77:21] Then we placed it in a well-protected repository.
[77:22] For a specific period.
[77:23] We measured it precisely. We are the best designers.

With the incomparable perfection of our creation and recreation, God has posed a challenge for the humans to recreate just one fly - the insect that is considered the main food supply for frogs and birds and has an average life span of only twenty days! Indeed, like all living creatures, God almighty repeats the fly's creation every second. There are some amazing facts that are worth studying about flies. There are over 120,000 species of flies ranging in size from 1/20th of an inch to three inches. That makes up the fourth largest insect order - about 12% of the total insect population. Eliminating 1 female fly can reduce fly populations by up to 500 flies/year.

Flies are born full size - they don't grow. They have 4000 lenses in each eye. They are capable of smelling through their antennae. They hunt very low for food -18" or less from the ground. Flies remain dormant until their body temperature reaches approximately 65 degrees F. They love heat, light, and low wind. They don't have teeth or a stinger, so they don't bite nor do they sting. To attack, they simply thrust a needle-like spike into their victims and injects a digestive juice that breaks down the victims cell tissue. They then suck the liquid in to ingest it.

Flies are the only insects that have only two wings. All other insects have four wings. A fly's wings beat 200 times per second! Average speed of a fly in flight is 4.5 m.p.h.. Flies jump up and backwards when taking off. They only continue to beat their wings so long as their feet are free. As soon as the feet become stationary, they stop flying. This is the fundamental rule of Fly Power! They are especially very quick in takeoffs and landings - their skill far exceeds that of any other insect or bird. Scientists found that the tiny wing stubs called halteres in a fly are actually wired to the flies' eyes. In the virtual reality system, there was an obvious and immediate connection between those muscles and the eyes. These are just few facts about flies. Can the human idols repeat the creation of just one fly out of the 120,000 species?

Can They Create a Fly? [22:73] O people, here is a parable that you must ponder carefully: the idols you set up beside GOD can never create a fly, even if they banded together to do so. Furthermore, if the fly steals anything from them, they cannot recover it; weak is the pursuer and the pursued.

The challenge of initiating and repeating the creation as well as the most logical debates about it are cited clearly in Quran posing questions for the intelligent ones: Who is in full control of that ? Do coincidences exist? and if they do, would they repeat in constant, precise, consistent, and objective manner?

[15:19] As for the earth, we constructed it, and placed on it stabilizers (mountains), and we grew on it a perfect balance of everything.
[15:20] We made it habitable for you, and for creatures you do not provide for.
[15:21] There is nothing that we do not own infinite amounts thereof. But we send it down in precise measure.
[15:22] And we send the winds as pollinators, and cause water to come down from the sky for you to drink. Otherwise, you could not keep it palatable.
[15:23] It is we who control life and death, and we are the ultimate inheritors.

[27:64] Who is the One who initiates the creation, then repeats it? Who is the One who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Is it another god with GOD? Say, "Show me your proof, if you are truthful."

Reflect on Your Idols [10:34] Say, "Can any of your idols initiate creation, then repeat it?" Say, "GOD initiates the creation, then repeats it. How could you deviate?".

[16:17] Is One who creates like one who does not create? Would you now take heed?


Peaceful Friday, salaam, and God bless.
