.... Life (or energy) is infinite, everlasting similar to God, which needed no cause, just as God.

Let us consider that energy is infinite. It has not left the presence of Allah for Allah is nearer to all things not like the nearness of bodies and not like one who would have to be in any place by moving from one place to another but that Allah is aware and near to all things.
Ultimately this energy has a source from which it comes from and it is from Allah. For Allah is the only infinite source of energy or life.

And as to your next point: (if you mean that Allah should have a partner then this partner should be of equal power and if so an equally great creation should exist. One would need proof of an existence of such a parallel existence. We know that it dose not exist in our world for there are only a finite amount of galaxies and space which Allah has created in order to sustain life as we know it but that this finite space and time and dimensional phenomenon dose not mean that Allah (the same One God) can not make it grow indefinitely in directions and dimensions that as of yet we have not seen or come near to understand. Another words: The Qur'an tells us that: if all the seas were made of ink and the seas with seven more seas were ink too and all the trees were pens with seven times that or more in quantity Allah's word ("BE" or the word that creates all things will not end).

As for another God existing this God would have to have created the same thing and possibly more and bring it as evidence to the other creation as proof of its' own existence before one could change one's belief. Other wise it is just speculation with out any basis for a good argument.

Abu-Yusuf Once Said: "He who seeks knowledge through speculation will become a heretic"

... Please explain to me how God can exist forever but life, or energy, cannot.

The Creator must be of a different nature from the things created because, if the creator were of the same nature as the creature or the matter created then the creator would have to be temporal and therefore need a maker. It stands to reason that nothing (not even ENERGY as we know it) is like Allah the creator. If the creator is not temporal then the same creator must be eternal. But if the same creator is eternal, then the same creator cannot be caused, and if nothing causes the same creator to come in to existence, nothing causes the same creator to continue to exist, which means that the same creator must be self sufficient. And if the same creator is dose not depend on anything for continuance of the same creators existence, then that existence can have no end. The creator is therefore eternal and everlasting: Thus it is written: “The creator is the first and the last.”
“All that dwells upon the earth (and in all places) is perishing, yet still abides the face of thy lord, majestic, splendid”

As Ever Humble
Forever Peace
