Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Some pleople say, “If Allah didn’t create Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), nothing of the universe would created” is it correct ? 


A: People talk according to the level of their understanding and the understanding of the people they are addressing. Allah Ta’ala has created the universe for His worship, and the leader of all worshippers is Hadhrat Nabi (sallallah alaihi wa sallam). So indirectly this world has been created for him.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
