Q: If we say that Allah is capable of doing everything, is He capable of creating another God? And if we say that he is capable of doing so, then we will be denying His oneness and if we say that he is not, we will be denying his ability of doing everything. What is your Eminence’s answer? 

A: This question is wrong; since we cannot ask whether Allah is capable of creating another God like Him because it is impossible to have another God. That is not because Allah is incapable of creating it, but since it is impossible to have a God other than Him. Besides, the capability lies in creating what could in its nature be created and not in creating what is impossible.
