Quran Verses on the Existence of God

The revelation of this Book is from Allah鈥攖he Almighty, All-Wise.

And We have certainly made the Quran easy to remember. So is there anyone who will be mindful?

That is because Allah 斯alone撕 is the Truth, He 斯alone撕 gives life to the dead, and He 斯alone撕 is Most Capable of everything.

馃摉Quran 56:62-67
And you have already known the first creation, so will you not remember? And have you seen that [seed] which you sow? Is it you who makes it grow, or are We the grower? If We willed, We could make it [dry] debris, and you would remain in wonder, [Saying], 鈥淚ndeed, we are [now] in debt; Rather, we have been deprived.

馃摉Quran 56:68-70
And have you seen the water that you drink? Is it you who brought it down from the clouds, or is it We who bring it down? If We willed, We could make it bitter, so why are you not grateful?

馃摉Quran 6:133-134
And your Lord is the Free of need, the possessor of mercy. If He wills, he can do away with you and give succession after you to whomever He wills, just as He produced you from the descendants of another people. Indeed, what you are promised is coming, and you will not cause failure [to Allah ].

Say, 鈥淥 my people, work according to your position; [for] indeed, I am working. And you are going to know who will have succession in the home. Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed.

馃摉Quran 16:70
And Allah created you; then He will take you in death. And among you is he who is reversed to the most decrepit [old] age so that he will not know, after [having had] knowledge, a thing. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Competent.

And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah untruth while he is being invited to Islam. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

馃摉Quran 22:3
斯Still撕 there are some who dispute about Allah without knowledge, and follow every rebellious devil.

Do they not see that We have created for them from what Our hands have made, grazing livestock, and [then] they are their owners? And We have tamed them for them, so some of them they ride, and some of them they eat.

馃摉Quran 52:36-38
Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain, Or have they the depositories [containing the provision] of your Lord? Or are they the controllers [of them]? Or have they a stairway [into the heaven] upon which they listen? Then let their listener produce a clear authority [i.e., proof].

馃摉Quran 52:35
Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators [of themselves]?

But they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, and the disbelievers say, 鈥淭his is an amazing thing, When we have died and have become dust, [we will return to life]? That is a distant return. We know what the earth diminishes of them, and with Us is a retaining record. But they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition.

Those who disbelieve have claimed that they will never be resurrected. Say, 鈥淵es, by my Lord, you will surely be resurrected; then you will surely be informed of what you did. And that, for Allah , is easy.

Other messengers had already been ridiculed before you, but I delayed the disbelievers 斯for a while撕 then seized them. And how 斯horrible撕 was My punishment!

Who does more wrong than those who fabricate lies against Allah or deny His signs? Indeed, the wrongdoers will never succeed.

Say, 鈥淚t is He who has produced you and made for you hearing and vision and hearts; little are you grateful.

How can you deny God, when you were dead and He gave you life, then He will put you to death, then He will bring you to life, then to Him you will be returned? It is He who created for you everything on earth, then turned to the heaven, and made them seven heavens. And He is aware of all things.

馃摉Quran 16:78
God brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers while you knew nothing, and gave you hearing and sight and hearts, so that you might be grateful.

馃摉Quran 2:281

馃摉Quran 69:18
On that Day you will be brought to judgement and none of your secrets will remain hidden.

Does the human being not remember that We created him before, when he was nothing?

馃摉Quran 49:13聽O Mankind, We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into races and tribes, so that you may identify one another. Surely the noblest of you, in Allah鈥檚 sight, is the one who is most pious of you. Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

馃摉Quran 20:55
From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.

[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed 鈥 and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving.

So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts.

Allah 鈥 there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

Exalt the name of your Lord, the Most High.

馃摉Quran 35:1
[All] praise is [due] to Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, [who] made the angels messengers having wings, two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.

Do you feel secure that He who [holds authority] in the heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you and suddenly it would sway? Or do you feel secure that He who [holds authority] in the heaven would not send against you a storm of stones? Then you would know how [severe] was My warning

Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Merciful. Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing.

And a sign for them is the dead earth. We have brought it to life and brought forth from it grain, and from it they eat.

And on the earth there are 斯different撕 neighbouring tracts, gardens of grapevines, 斯various撕 crops, palm trees鈥攕ome stemming from the same root, others standing alone. They are all irrigated with the same water, yet We make some taste better than others. Surely in this are signs for those who understand.

Say, 鈥淚t is He who has produced you and made for you hearing and vision and hearts; little are you grateful.

And they say, 鈥淲hen is this promise, if you should be truthful? Say, 鈥淭he knowledge is only with Allah , and I am only a clear warner.

Every soul will have a taste of death, and you will receive your recompense on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever is swayed from the Fire, and admitted to Paradise, has won. The life of this world is merely enjoyment of delusion.

Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you are in high protected towers.

The death from which you run away will certainly approach you. Then you will be returned to the One who knows the unseen and the seen, and He will tell you what you have done.

Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is, over all things, Disposer of affairs, To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. And they who disbelieve in the verses of Allah 鈥 it is those who are the losers.

Additional Information

These are some verses from the Qur鈥檃n. As Muslims, we believe that the Qur鈥檃n is the word of God. However, it is important to note that one must deeply understand and reflect upon these verses. It is also encouraged to observe the world around you, contemplate your own body, and think about the hereafter and death. To gain a better understanding, it is advisable to connect with local Islamic scholars for further information.
