Ibn Kathir on God: Creation itself evidence for the Creator

Ibn Kathir reported: Some of the Arabs were asked, “What is the evidence for the existence of the Lord Almighty?” They said, “O, glory be to Allah! The camel’s dung testifies to the existence of the camel, and the track testifies to the fact that someone was walking. A sky that holds the stars, a land that has fairways and a sea that has waves? Does not all of this testify to the existence of the Subtle, Knowledgeable?”

قال ابن كثير قَالَ بَعْضُ الْأَعْرَابِ وَقَدْ سُئِلَ مَا الدَّلِيلُ عَلَى وُجُودِ الرَّبِّ تَعَالَى فَقَالَ يَا سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ الْبَعْرَةَ لَتَدُلُّ عَلَى الْبَعِيرِ وَإِنَّ أَثَرَ الْأَقْدَامِ لَتَدُلُّ عَلَى الْمَسِيرِ فَسَمَاءٌ ذَاتُ أَبْرَاجٍ وَأَرْضٌ ذَاتُ فِجَاجٍ وَبِحَارٌ ذَاتُ أَمْوَاجٍ أَلَا يَدُلُّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى وُجُودِ اللَّطِيفِ الْخَبِيرِ
