Ethics

God Is All-Powerful

All people are dependent beings with faults and shortcomings. Confined to time and space, they can continue to exist only by the will of God, Who has created time, space, humanity, and everything else. He is beyond fault and imperfection, supreme and exalted, and nothing can happen if He does not will it to happen. Unless God wills it, no leaf can fall to the ground and no woman can conceive or give birth. God knows every secret and every thing, whether visible or invisible. Given that He is above everything and therefore has infinite and supreme power, no force or thing in the heavens or on Earth can render Him helpless. The following verses reveal these truths:

God created the seven heavens and of Earth the same number, the command descending down through all of them, so that you might know that God has power over all things and encompasses all things in His knowledge. (Qur'an, 65:12) Everything in the heavens and everything in Earth belongs to God. Whether you divulge what is in yourselves or keep it hidden, God will still call you to account for it. He forgives whoever He wills and punishes whoever He wills. God has power over all things. (Qur'an, 2:284) No! I swear by the Lord of the Easts and Wests that We have the power to replace them with something better than them. We will not be outstripped. (Qur'an, 70:40-41)

The Bible reveals that God is All-Mighty:

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered... (Luke, 12:6-7) Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew, 19:26) The Torah has many passages that reveal God's Infinite Power: ... "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever. Wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons, sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things. He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him. (Daniel, 2:20-22) And God said to him: "I am God Almighty." (Genesis, 35:11)
