First Colossians 1:16
This is a miss-translation and a misquoted verse in the Old testament, it isn't only speaking about Jesus, but all of mankind, that everything was created for them and on account of mankind and everything was subjected to mankind I.e. animals the earth and the universe and mankind will rule everything.
For all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created on account of, because of him and for him.
Strong's Concordance dia Greek
everything was created dia by reason of, for the sake of, because of.
Jesus couldn't of created everything because he said I can do of myself nothing, so the correct translation is because of him or on account of him everything was created and not threw Jesus, just like mankind everything was created because of him or them.
These verses are about mankind.
Simple sayings twisted and misunderstood turning Jesus into God.
The Universe and Earth along with Animals and everything else was created for Mankind and because of Mankind and this is what the Bible and Qur'an teaches.
But Paul has left everyone else out and is saying everything was created for Jesus only and this is not what the scriptures teach, everything was created for Mankind and on account of Man.
Psalm 8:6 talking about Mankind New International Version
You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: 4 what is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You care for him? 5 You made him a little lower than the angels and crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You made him ruler of the works of Your hands; You have placed everything under his feet:…
6 You made him ruler of the works of Your hands; You have placed everything under his feet: 7 all sheep and oxen, and even the beasts of the field, 8the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.… …7all sheep and oxen, and even the beasts of the field, 8the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!…
Psalm 8:4 3 When I behold Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You set in place— 4what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him? 5You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor.…
Hebrews 2:8 and put everything under their feet." In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.
This proves everything was created because of mankind and for mankind including Jesus and you and me, but if you miss translate something it will read something else and say everything was created threw and for Jesus and this isn't true because the scriptures say everything was created because of mankind and for mankind and the Greek in First Colossians 1:16 says everything was created on account of Jesus just like everything was created on account of mankind and everything is subjected to mankind.
Psalms is talking about Mankind as a whole being a little lower then the Angels and everything under Mans feet and rule and everything was created because of man and for man, Paul is simply copying the Old Testament and replacing mankind with Jesus and certain people mistranslated Greek words to give Jesus a higher status and stature and this isn't what the scriptures teach God is always above Jesus and Jesus is only a man and not God.
John 1 talking about the Word of God, is simply talking about the Logos or Command of God I.e. the will of Allah creating everything threw his will or word, command and not threw Jesus, because John says the command of God created Jesus and he was made flesh and everything was created with the divine command of Allah and not using another entity or another person that was along with Allah, you are misunderstanding the basic scripture teachings, that Allah is one and a single entity and like Isaiah says there's no entity along with me and i created everything with my command or will and not another entity or God besides Allah.
Unless you believe Jesus is speech or thought and everyone knows Jesus isn't speech, well some Christians actually believed this; some still today, he's Gods command coming into existence in Mary and born without a father, he's Gods divine will being created, ( and the command of God became flesh and dwelt among us and we saw Jesus glory and nothing wasn't made without the command of God.
The Greek word there is Logos the same Logos used in John for command I.e. speech in Greek or thought
5 command, appoint, ordain, of divine act: in creation Isaiah 45:12; Psalm 33:9; Psalm 148:5, providence 2 Samuel 17:4; Amos 6:11; Amos 9:9; Job 37:12; Psalm 78:23; Isaiah 34:16, redemption Psalm 7:7; Psalm 44:5; Psalm 68:29; Psalm 71:3; so of idol Isaiah 48:5 ("" עשׂה).
I am the one who made the earth and created people to live on it. With my hands I stretched out the heavens. All the stars are at my command.
For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed by God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
He sends forth His word and melts them; He unleashes His winds, and the waters flow.
Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He gave the command and they were created.
Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has ordained it?
I, the LORD, have spoken; the time is coming, and I will act. I will not refrain or show pity, nor will I relent. I will judge you according to your ways and deeds,' declares the Lord GOD."

The word was with God, misunderstanding of scriptures.
Lady Wisdom was with God.
The scriptures say Wisdom was with God and no Christian ever says that Wisdom who's described as female is another entity along with God, correction Christians believe Lady Wisdom is Jesus but Proverbs explains Wisdom is created according to the Septuagint; Hebrew Bible also possessed, so now there's 4 entity"s and all 4 are one, because according to your logic Wisdom is with God and she's eternal and was with God in the beginning and the word was with God in the beginning and it, he's eternal along with the Holy spirit who's with God and the Father who's with all 4 entity's, so now Christians actually have 4 entity's in one and not just three, using Christian logic.
Christianity's problem is you don't understand the scriptures and how they speak allegorically and how they describe things.
The Wisdom of God isn't a different person it's Gods eternal wisdom, like your wisdom isn't a different entity then you.
Gods Word isn't a different person or entity, it's Gods command or thought and will, just like your will or thought is you and not a different entity or person or spirit then yourself.
Jesus isn't God he's a man and prophet sent by God and God speaks and communicates with mankind threw Jesus, just like every other messenger, Angels and prophets, using miracles and prophecies.
Gods Holy spirit, isn't a different entity along with God, it's Gods power force energy and just read Genesis where it says, the spirit of God moved over the deep in the Hebrew it says Gods force or power and not a different entity, because Allah power and force isn't and different God.
THE HOLY SPIRIT In Hebrew, the original inspired language of the Tanach (Old Testament), the word 'Ruach' cannot be construed as a person. It is a force. It is invisible and like wind, because it can be felt or experienced, but not seen. It is the breath of God which disperses His life-force, His energy and His intentions/mind.
It is Yahweh's Spirit which is is omnipresent, but also can be directed in specific ways for specific purposes. It is not His actual Person (which remains incorporeal and outside of the physical dimension) that manifests itself in the world, or which comes to dwell in the hearts and lives of His people.
His spirit can be said to be the emanation of His life-force - i.e. breath Definition of spirit/ruach:
“The basic meaning of ruach is both ‘wind’ or ‘breath,’ but neither is understood as essence; rather it is the power encountered in the breath and the wind, whose whence and whither remains mysterious… 2. ruach as a designation for the wind is necessarily something found in motion with the power to set other things in motion…The divine designation also apparently has an intensifying function in a few passages:
ruach elohim (Gen 1:2) and ruach yhwh (Isa 59:19)”
(Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament, “Ruach”).
Who is Lady Wisdom in Proverbs 8?
Lady Wisdom in Proverbs 8: Was She a Co-Creator with God? Proverbs 8:22-31 gets a lot of attention because of verse 30, where someone was “beside” God “like a master workman.”
Proverbs 8:22-31 gets a lot of attention because of verse 30, where someone was “beside” God “like a master workman.” Christians are used to thinking in these terms because Jesus is cast as God’s agent of creation (Col 1:16; 1 Cor 8:16). But Wisdom in Proverbs seems to conflict with that for a simple reason—throughout the book Wisdom is cast as a woman. Look at Prov 1:20-22. Notice how wisdom is referred to by the pronouns “she” and “her”:
Notice how wisdom is referred to by the pronouns “she” and “her”: Proverbs 8:22-31 is famous for its description of the wisdom of God as a person or entity—a deity-level figure who assists God in some way with the creation of the world.
During his lifetime, Jesus himself didn't call himself God and didn't consider himself God, and ... none of his disciples had any inkling at all that he was God. Historian Bart Ehrman
Bible speaks clearly about God and the Qur'an. Because Allah doesn't walk around and live in buildings that man makes and doesn't use toilets and becomes a human being, male or female and doesn't change his entity, Qur'an there's nothing like Allah in the universe.
Yusuf Ali: (He is) the Creator of the heavens and the earth: He has made for you pairs from among yourselves, and pairs among cattle: by this means does He multiply you: there is nothing whatever like unto Him, and He is the One that hears and sees (all things).
Psalm 86:8 Among the judges (3), mighty (2), rulers there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.

You simply don't understand scriptures because your being taught lies and people are trying to justify a trinity and 3 Gods and are deliberately withholding certain scripture verses and chapters that say the exact same thing about Gods word or command and is actually described as a female and was with God from the beginning, lady wisdom, so what you think the word or Gods command is, it isn't and it isn't another entity with God, but it's Gods command or will that created everything including Jesus and all of us, and the command of God or will of God became flesh, Bible, so Allah simply said be and Jesus was created, just like Adam, all Allah has to say is be and it is, or simply will everything into existence, because Allah simply doesn't keep saying billions of words of creation like the millions of animals and plants and insects, galaxy's and so on.
Allah knows best
