Answered by Dr. Shehzad Saleem

I have heard people say that we are intuitively aware of a Creator. Is this true?


There is no doubt about the fact that the perception of Creator is found in the intuition of every person. The Qur’ān says that before mankind was created, the Almighty took a covenant from the spirits of all individuals about Him being their Creator. At that time, all of them acknowledged this fact which was subsequently made a part of their intuition by the Almighty. A person who still denies this fact is bound to be doomed in the Hereafter. The Qur’ān says:

When your Lord drew forth from the children of Adam from their loins their descendants and made them testify upon themselves [saying]: Am I not your Lord. They said: Yes indeed we do testify. [This was done] lest you should say on the Day of Judgement: Of this we were unaware of or [you put forward the excuse] that our forefathers were idolaters and we were their descendents after them. Will you then destroy us in retribution of the misdeeds of the evil doers. (7:172-73)
