To Allah alone belongs the ownership, the origin, the control and dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that are contained in them. His power has no limit in scope and level and is not tied to any rule, because all of these are His creation. As the originator of all things, it is easy for Him to breathe life into clay just as He makes a similar life, the result from processes that include sperm drop transforming into a clot of blood, then into flesh, its subsequent taking form, etc.
At the same time, He may decide to stop the process at any stage in a woman’s womb or allow the foetus to be brought out in tender form which gradually grows and develops with the attributes of quantum and quality. He then makes it to degenerate and eventually expires.
He can as He did, in the case of Jesus, breathe life, commence the same process in the womb of a woman without the introduction of sperm. Also, He can as He did, against the logic of potency, make aged couple fruitful. Ibrahim (A.S) and Zakariyya’u (A.S) are case studies. Muslims do not therefore doubt or disbelieve that only Allah can and will resurrect life. And as with men, so we notice with vegetation.
See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.
Allah is unlike any creation in His attributes. His are absolute. The inconsistency in comparing the originator and creator of all things to any creation of His may be revealed in comparing a slave to a free man. The difference is appreciable and glaring.
Allah sets forth the parable (of two men: one) a slave under the dominion of another; he has no power of any sort; and (the other) a man on whom We have bestowed goodly favours from Ourselves, and he spends thereof (freely), privately and publicly, are the two equal? (By no means:) Praise be to Allah. But most of them understand not.
