Phrases about Allah

Question ID: 28070

Assalamualaikum Mufti

My question is as follows:

In many a books or lectures i have read or heard the following phrase ‘ Allah is the best of Creators ‘ . I do not have sufficient knowledge on the Quraan or hadith to relate or understand this. What i would like to know is, is it permissible to use such a phrase? , is it from the Holy Quraanic verses, i am inquiring about this since i am looking at it plainly from the literal aspect where it would appear that ‘Creators’ is plural or a comparison to other Creators. For fear of uttering something without knowledge and saying something which could have a relation to shirk since Allah is the only Creator please could you clarify this for me and explain further, also could you explain the context of when Allah addresses us in the quraan using ‘ We’ as a plural form since it is linked to my initial question. If time permits could you please include the aspect with regard to the allegorical meanings and style of words used in the Noble Quraan in terms of clarifying my question, also any literature recommended for further understanding which would be beneficial in this regard will be appreciated.

Forgive me for my ignorance,May Allah bless you.

It is used like this in the Quraan. 'Halq' means joining and contributing of molecules and matter. Download Aqaaidul Islaam from site.
