    Posted by Taimur Mughal on September 22, 2022 at 1:40 pm

    Children that died in small age or before puberty , aill they be resurrected at the Day of Judgement as children? And as they are innocent would they be directly sent to Paradise or will they also be asked questions? As In a surah Allah says it will be asked to a girls that was buried alive what was her fault that she had to undergo such thing!!

    Can someone explain?

    Thank you.

    Assalam-o-Alaikam. Since Allah sent us for a test and Allah will not do an atoms weight of injustice. Allah can’t give children a fee pass to heaven without a test. Others may call it an injustice.

    Allah must have another way to serve justice.

    Since Allah know all our future, perhaps he only let those children die in early age that are known to be going to heaven. Allah can show the their future to everyone to show that he is serving justice. This may not be done with children who are known to go to hell. Allah can’t just send them to heaven. That will be an injustice. Allah can’t send them to hell either as they will object that they were not given a chance.

    Another possibility may be that perhaps Allah gives the children another life in this World to allow them to go through the test and prove themselves.

    I don’t think children will be born as children on the last day. Everyone will be born in his or her prime. Quran talks about large pearl like objects spread around in heaven that will turn into children (youths) who will serve people in Junnah, but it doesn’t sound like human children.

      Arent you misinterpreting surah waqiah, it doesnt really say it turns into Pearl youths , its a metaphor that they may look like scattered pearls, and as far as children sending back, But Allah says clearly nobody can return once he or she is dead. And what about This verse that Allah is asking the girls that was buried alive?? Arabs used to do that with their kids. So your explanation is not making sense in that regard!

      Can you clearify.

      Thank you.

      Good Challenge Taimur!

      There is not a clear answer about children in Quran so either we do not answer, or infer from other information or have a plain unsubstantiated guess.

      1. Children servers in Heaven looking like scattered pearl. We do not know if it a metaphor or reality. There is nothing stated specifically in Quran as if it is a metaphor. If there is a metaphor used, Quran specifically states that it is a metaphor. There are many examples of that.

      2. Allah says no body comes back after death. Could it be for adults who’s test is complete. If it is for everyone, then my assumption that all the children who die in young age might be those deserving of Junnah if they were to go through the test. Otherwise other people will object why they were not put to test.

      3. Allah is asking girls why they were buried alive doesn’t mean when they are being questioned by Allah they are still young girls. If they were to be in the same age as they were buried alive then most of them will be less than a day or only a few day old when they were buried.

      In my understanding in Allah’s court everyone will come in their prime age.

      If you look in this world alot of people consider giving benefits and happiness to innocent creature a love, a Goodness , a compassion and there is no way they consider it injustice. So How can it be injustice if God make existence of innocent creature in jannah a perfect existence without suffering?

      Brother Waleed. In this World they are innocent children, but in the last day they may be reborn as adults.

      Wouldn’t you object if you had to go to difficulties if life to pass the test. What if you fail the test of life and being sent to hell and you see a group of people going to heaven without a test, Wouldn’t you object?

      I think the concept of test which Quran present is not the best conceivable form of existence. I think the best conceivable form of existence is existence without suffering. So I don’t know why God created suffering and I don’t know if there is any situation in which putting any creature not only children in eternal suffering is justice or not.

      Still no satisfying answers.

      I think maybe they will be resurrected as kids and will be going straight to heaven without hisaab because they could not grow and be tested in This world , God made them eternal youths like they are in Paradise. But still wil they also be waiting on the day of Judgement? Will they also see all the horrors etc.? Still not clear all This.

      God Almighty’s know best .

      Since Jannah has not been created yet so everyone has to wait. Horrors are only shown to those in this waiting area who have knowingly committed evil beyond any doubt and have no chance of any relaxation on the Day of Judgement. Those who were unable to take the test can obviously not be in this category.
