The “Best of Creators” Statement in the Qur’an is Not a Contradiction

Then We developed the seed into a clot. Then We developed the clot into a lump. Then We developed the lump into bones. Then We clothed the bones with flesh. Then We produced it into another creature. Most Blessed is Allah, the Best of Creators. (al-Mu’minun Surah, 14)

Another mistake of those who believes there are contradictions in the Qur’an is a expression in al-Mu’minun Surah verse 14. Why Allah used the expression of «Most Blessed is Allah, the Best of Creators » as the last sentence of this verse though he highlighted that he is one and only and wanted his believers to believe his unity tens of times?

This expression creates an impression for the ones who don’t know some aspect of Qur’an and Arabic that this is an expression that contradicts general narrative of Qur’an when they first look it, but there is no contradiction in the sense of both Arabic grammar and narrative aspect. This statement is not a contradiction but a superior and beautiful expression of Arabic language.

That is because Allah is the Reality, and what they worship besides Him is falsehood, and because Allah is the Exalted, the Supreme. (Luqman Surah, 30)

As in this verse, when Allah states his adjectives, he uses some words that doesn’t used for expressing comparison in Arabic. Kebir word is a word like this. It means the mightiest and represents a meaning that there is no a little less mighty creator for him to be compared. It clearly notifies that only Allah is mighty and no go dis who have such might. Expression in al-Mu’minun Surah is an example of this. Such is the meaning of the Creator’s most beautiful statement. (ehsenel halikın) There is no other “best creator”, its meaning and Arabic expressions describe it like this. As there is no contradiction anywhere in the Qur’an, there is no contradiction in this verse at all.
