  • Quran 7:179 – Humans Made For Hell

    Posted by Sameer Namole on March 9, 2022 at 8:36 am

    Allah says : [And indeed We have created many jinns and men for hell; they have hearts in which their is no understanding; and the eyes they do not see with; and the ears they do not hear with; they are like cattle – in fact more astray; it is they who are the neglectful.]

    Do we have elaboration of this full ayah. How humans become animals and what is meaning by Almighty created many people for hell.

    This sentence expresses great anger and warning. It means that if a large number of men and jinn who have adopted a rebellious attitude, then after this it can only be said that God has created them for Hell. Thus, it is explained ahead why they will become the fuel of Hell. It is stated that that these people did not take any advantage of the faculties and abilities which the Almighty gave them to understand the truth. The consequence of this was that the very objective of their life became coming into this world, spending time here and then ending up in Hell.

    576 This understanding, seeing and listening refer to their essence and reality; otherwise they fully understand, see and listen what these faculties demand in the perceptible sense to feed their hunger and satisfy their sexual urge.

    577 Imām Amīn Aḥsan Iṣlāḥī writes:

    … They are like animals because just as animals confine their efforts to satisfy the needs of their bodies, in a similar way, their endeavours too are restricted to their material needs and desires. They are less sensible than animals because animals at least take advantage of all the abilities found in their instincts and leave no stone unturned in this regard. On the other hand, human beings not only do not take real advantage of the higher abilities which the Almighty has bestowed on them, they also at times end up doing things which even an ox or a donkey would not do. For example, human beings in spite of being human beings become so foolish and silly that they start worshipping trees, stones and animals but an ox or a donkey can never be so imprudent. The Qur’ān states that it is such people who are not aware in the real sense because even animals are not inflicted with this unawareness. (Amīn Aḥsan Iṣlāḥī, Tadabbur-i Qur’ān, vol. 3, 398) (Al-Bayan)

      Many Thanks for reply, brilliant explanation from the above mentioned ayah.

      But my question is different, lets put in this way

      Before creating humans, Allah Subhanaho wa T’ala knew it already through his power of foreseeing, that this creation will be disobedient, then why did He create humans? Because it was Allah’s choice to create humans? So what I am thinking are humans created for the good ones so they can achieve success and enter heavens?

      The question I heard is , when we read Quran we read in so many places that Allah Almighty is the most merciful and we believe in that off course and experience that in our every day life, the question is, having said that He is the most merciful then how come it’s a mercy to create someone about which He already knew that he will enter hell?

      God knew all in advance, but he decided to let it happen. This is not the test of his knowledge but our test to achieve a status. He is not not just merciful, He is the creator, King and lord of the people who wanted the things this way. He has given us chance to achieve eternal blessings for a very short span of time in the world but if some deliberately fail, He decided to send them to Hell as they refuse to earn His blessings.
