Allah is the only Self-Existing Being


A: Allah (Exalted be He) is the Only Necessary Being. No other being has brought Him into existence. Other beings are brought into existence by Him (Exalted be He), and their existence depends on His Will and Power. It is up to the Will of Allah (Glorified be He) to sustain the creations or cause them to perish. (Part No. 1; Page No. 459) The evidence derived from the Qur'an, Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet) and reality confirms that our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a human being like all other human beings that Allah created from a male and a female, then he died when his life came to an end. He was brought into existence like all other creations, but he was distinguished in that Allah (Exalted be He) selected him to convey His Message to all mankind and to be the last of His prophets (peace be upon them all). Moreover, All rational people agree that there is no channel between the necessary and the possible existence to say that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is that channel or is in it. `Aqly (reasonable) rulings are three according to the unanimous view of scholars i.e., necessary, impossible, and possible existence. So, claiming that there is a fourth rational ruling whether it is a channel or something else contrary to the implications of the textual and rational evidence is wrong.
