As Salaam Mualaikum Ya Warisul Ambiya,

What is or is their any proof or authentic view from the time of the Prophet SallallahuAlaihiWasSallaam to the time of Shaykh Abul Hasan Al Maturidi about the issue of the first creation of Allah Tala! Was is it water that Allah Tala created first? Was it Prophet SallallahuAlaihiWasSallaam's Noor or Ru'ooh that Allah Tala created first? What did Allah Tala Create First? Also does this issue effect a person Aqidah and will it cause a person problems during questioning in the grave and the questioning on the day of judgment?

Dear Brother in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

A few Ahadith are quoted in regard to the above-mentioned question but they are not authentic. However, Ulama have different opinions on the subject. Some are of the opinion that the Prophet¡¯s Noor has been created first when the others view that the Ruh is the first creation of Allah. A few Ulama state that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta¡¯alah has created, first, Qalam (Pen). There are other different opinions as well. But as a matter of fact, this is not a part of our faith and none will be asked about this issue neither in the grave nor on the Day of Judgment. Therefore, we should avoid spending our precious time in such kind of issues and must devote ourselves to getting basic and necessary teachings of Islam.

And Allah knows the best,
