[Q-ID0568] Allah created everything so can we say that Allah made our houses, clothes, shoes, etc?

‍QUESTION:

What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: We know that Allāh Almighty is the Creator of everything, so can we say that Allāh Almighty made our houses, clothes, shoes, etc and how will we able to differentiate whether Allāh Almighty directly created these things or indirectly?

Questioner: Shareeq from UK

ANSWER:

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

There is no doubt in the fact that Allāh Almighty is the Creator of everything, however what is appropriate is that one attributes only those things in which the direct Power of Allāh Almighty is in relation to. With regards to those things which human beings have made, though Allāh Almighty has given them this ability also, however what is appropriate is that the making of these things is attributed to mankind. It should never be said that Allāh Almighty makes our shoes, as this sentence is disrespectful in the Majestic Court of Allāh Almighty, even though the one who gave the ability to the shoemaker to make shoes is that very same True Creator ﷻ.
