Kalām Argument

Kalām was an Islamic scholar centuries ago. He came up with an argument for the plausibility of the existence of a god. Modern Christian Creationist, William Lane Craig, added to the argument and claimed it proved the existence of the Christian god.

Kalām’s original version went like this:

Whatever begins to exist has a cause;
The universe began to exist;
Therefore:
The universe has a cause.

William Lane Craig’s version goes like this:

The universe has a cause;
If the universe has a cause, then an uncaused, personal Creator of the universe exists, who sans the universe is beginningless, changeless, immaterial, timeless, spaceless and enormously powerful;
Therefore:
An uncaused, personal Creator of the universe exists, who sans the universe is beginningless, changeless, immaterial, timeless, spaceless and enormously powerful.

What’s wrong with this argument?
