  • Why The Exam Of This World

    Posted by Muhammad Ahmed on October 21, 2020 at 1:12 am

    A lot of people question why Allah wants to examine his creation when its in his knowledge that most of them are gonna fail the test. We certainly cant know the reason behind his scheme and one might say u can ask him on the day of judgement. But doesn’t this implementation of law of testing in this life while knowing many will fail and suffer make a dent in the perfect image and attributes of god.

    He had Jins and Angels worshipping him already, and then he created another of his creation ‘Human’. It’s his prerogative what he creates. God wanted them to stay in Jannah (or in limits he explained them, knowing human’s desires and curiosity overflow as he designed them so). But they crossed the limits on Iblees’s motivation. Everything about this world starts from here.

    Iblees is gonna do what he said he would do to all humanity until judgment day, and the believers will keep adhering to God’s directives. Today’s world is similar to that Adam’s scenario. Iblees is doing his thing to believers and disbelievers, and believers are choosing their sides as per their self control, beliefs and faith.

    We are all His creations, some may please him and some may not. He’s the decider and knower of everything. It’s not a dent in creation, it is how it is designed to be. Two forces are at play, evil and Good. We are a creation, who have choice and authority to guide their conscience. He wants to give us an eternal life of happiness in Jannah, the cost is to spend this temporary period without crossing the drawn lines of morality and faith. If there was a dent in creation, we may have reversed all the rules of science at surface and Quantum level for every creature existing in here, also the forces that are at play here.

    Yes he knows many will fail because of the way this new creation ‘human’ was designed, and Iblees exploits that weakness in humans. Iblees is destined to be in hell, and so will be the humans following his lead. It’s not God doing what a God isn’t supposed to do, it’s us the creation that are designed in such a way. All we should do is finding dent in ourselves. God created us, just like he created other creations for his worship alone. But then he decided to give us authority and power, to which one of his creation disagreed and internalized hatred towards this new creation (human). All this scheme has huge reward of afterlife in return for the believers, similarly hell is awaiting those choosing the other side.

    So, understanding purpose of creation, and why this stage was set up, and what forces are at play, one can see what’s happening and why it’s happening.

    What’s the bigger purpose of all this? In this temporary period of 60, 80 or 100 years of lifetime of an individual, how far can we understand and explore this universe or all sciences? Not much I guess. We can’t have absolute knowledge of everything in this limited time period. Yes we can thrive, and raise the knowledge bar up, but can’t figure it all.

    To think of it. Iblees raised the same question and argued when he failed the test to do sajda to Adam. He addressed Allah that it is you who have brought me in this situation. Argument was that Allah knew the passion of anaa in iblees and he still put him to test knowing he could fail. So he blamed god for it.

    In contrast adam and hawa repented and didn’t question the test itself.

    Why iblees had Anaa and Adam repented? Because the very purpose of all this creation is Submission to Allah’s will no matter what. He didn’t create bots or computers with default obedience settings, he gave free will to them. It’s his design. Two forces of evil and good are pulling them, only those humble, obedient and submitting to God’s will are gonna make it. Doesn’t show a dent in creation, good and evil are by design there.
