Creator and creation: Commonality in all religions

The divine scriptures of all religions reveal common grounds while dealing with the subject of creation and the creator (Supreme power: the God or Allah) which strengthens the belief of a connect between human being and the Almighty, besides stressing upon them inculcation of the positive/natural attributes of humanity. Since time immemorial, man has tried to understand the ‘existence’ and ‘cause’ of Universe, besides theory of the ‘Creator’ and the creation. Scientists/Philosophers viewed that the Universe was created with some ‘immaterial’ or ‘primal’ matter, not yet sundered into its individual elements. Further, ‘Big Bang theory’ says that Universe came into being as a result of an explosion of the cosmic egg. These hypotheses are supported by religious scriptures of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism and Hinduism as well:

“Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then we parted them, and we made every living things of water? Will they not then believe?” (Al Anbiyaa:30)

“The day when we shall roll up the heavens as a recorder rolleth up a written scroll. As we began the first Creation, we shall repeat it.” (Al Anbiyaa: 104)

Such as remember Allah, standing, sitting and reclining and consider the creation of the heavens and the earth, (and say): our Lord! Thou createdst not this in vain. (Batil)”. (Aal-e-Imran:191)

“Existence or non-existence are illusionary vision beyond ones perception.” – Shunyata (Buddhism)

“Vision comprehendeth him not, but he comprehendeth (all) vision. He is the subtile, the aware.” (Al An-am: 103)

“Lo! God engulfs everything” (Ha Meem Sajda: 54)

“Know thyself, one who know his own self knows his God”. (Brihadaranyk Upanishad- 2.4.5)

“Ponder on the Supreme self within you.” (Mundakopanishad- 2.2.5)

“In the beginning all this was but the manifested (Brahman). From that emerged the manifested. That Brahman created itself by itself. Therefore, it is called the self-creator.” (Taittiriya Upanishad – 2.7.1)

In a nutshell, various religions are different manifestations to deliver Almighty’s message/wish to the creation, as per contemporary/geographical needs, hence harmony amongst human beings is in the gist of every religion.
