Surely Allah (rabbul ‘izza) is All Knowing, the Most Wise. Why did Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى create some wrongdoers if He knew these wrongdoers will end up in hellfire. And even worse, why did He create some stubborn disbelievers who will receive eternal damnation? Surely He is not a God who likes to inflict pain unto His creation. If you say He gave mankind free will, then surely He has knowledge that which of these will use their free will for evil.

Allah has given us free will. He will judge us for his actions. 

It is wrong to blame Allah for the actions of people.

Wsalam bro

Authubillah am not blaming Him سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى for our actions, but he has knowledge of which of His creation will do something deserving eternal damnation. So why did He create us. Who am I to disrespect Him or to question Him. For I am only following his command to think and to reflect, and insha’Allah I will get an answer.

Is traffic accident Evil, if so, what is the cause of it? not following the law.

So, do you blame the traffic system for creating this evil? 

*****

If there were only two people in the world. What will be the cause of any evil? 

Oh I think I understand a bit.. so you are saying the Creation of free will necessitates evil as a byproduct.

Thanks for the answrr

Jesus taught that the kingdom of heaven (which is more real than the visible world that we can see) is like unto...

He put another parable before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, 'Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?' He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' So the servants said to him, 'Then do you want us to go and gather them?' But he said, 'No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, "Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn."'" - Matthew 13:24-30

All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world."  Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field." He answered, "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. - Matthew 13:34-43

God knows who will pass or fail the test, however if He decided not to make mankind go through these tests and only reward or chastise according to His knowledge, people might easily object. But with the tests, God can present the result for the people for them to convict themselves


The result of that testing will be found wide open before us on Judgement Day leaving man with no excuse regarding what he "would have done" or not in any situation 17:13-14"And (for) every human, We have imposed his fate upon his neck, and We will produce to him on the day of resurrection a book which he will encounter wide open. Read your book; sufficient is yourself today against you as a reckoner".

God is Omniscient but His attribute of Justice necessitates that he does not merely reward and punish people on the basis of His knowledge but only after we manifest our good or evil potentials during trials, whose intricacies and higher wisdoms are with God 3:179"On no account will Allah leave the believers in the condition which you are in until He separates the evil from the good; nor is Allah going to make you acquainted with the unseen".

 

These actions are not considered "done" until actually and concretely materializing. Several examples are given in the Quran to illustrate that principle, among the most explicit is the child slain prior to becoming an evil, sinful person and therefore is not considered guilty of the sin he would have commited had he kept on living.

 

For this purpose did Allah 67:2"created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving". God puts us through these tests so that He might see us acting out what He knew we would do, again because he does not hold one accountable on the basis of His foreknowledge otherwise people might present the fact that "they did not do it" the day they are raised for accountability 10:14"Then We made you successors in the land after them so that We may see how you act". Wanting to see what you will do does not suggest that He does not know what you will do. He wants to see your actions when they happen on the ground although he knew that they will happen before. One may ask why? the reason is that we are accountable only to what we actually do. So, we are not accountable for our acts that are in God's knowledge until we do them and He observes them happen for fact, and the verb "ilm" is not simply "knowing" but also conveys the sense of knowing factually, ie in concrete.

 

One of Atheists' favorite attack on God is that His Omniscience contradicts human freewill. Since God cannot be wrong then the person is compelled to choose what God has foreseen. If God knows the person will choose A, then choice B becomes impossible. However nobody will ever explain the physical process by which one is compelled to follow one course instead of another. The relationship between omniscience and moral accountability is something known, for now, to God only and any attempt at understanding it is mere conjecture 6:148-9.

 

To a believer holding the opinion that God lives outside of time -which is another of His creations- the question "if God knows I will choose A, can i choose B?" starts with a wrong premise since it is speaking from the perspective of two different entities, one being affected by time (human) the other living outside of it since it is His own creation along with all things outside of Him. God created both space and time, since both can only exist in the presence of a material universe. The notion of when and where thus began after the creation of the universe. Since He precedes all creation the spacetime dimension is therefore not a factor to Him. He can see and influence the present while remaining beyond time and space. This reality from God's perspective is stated in the Quran in several ways, including through literary devices when it uses past tenses for future events.

 

Things unfolding in the future, being created or destroyed a thousand year from now is from our perspective, but from God's these things have already happened so when one asks whether he can choose B instead of A he is in fact asking if he can choose something else than what he already chose. In reality there is no future or God foreseeing anything, time is only from our perspective.

 

God is therefore not in the midst of the stream of the succeeding moments of time, as is the case with humans. He does not design, He creates. God is not only without beginning or end of days, but with Him thousands of years are as one human day. Hence, God knows in one eternal intuition that which for the human consciousness is past, present and future. In a strict sense, therefore, there can be no foreknowledge or prescience with God, and the distinctions people make when speaking of God's knowledge is after all an anthropomorphism. Consequently to the fact that the only way the human mind can conceive of the Divine omniscience is in its relation to time, we attribute anthropomorphic expressions to God and picture Him reacting as things unfold from our perspective.

 

The Quran in verses such as 22:47 answers the disbelievers request of hastening on them the promised punishement. It tells them that a day for Allah is like 1000 years to us which indicates one day and a thousand days are indifferent for Allah and that the promise punishement will come on them as prophecied by the prophet, and it did come on them soon after 21:109"and I know not whether that which you are promised is near or far". Similarly in 70:4 Allah says that angels ascend to Him in a day equal to 50 thousand years, again because what men conceive of as "time" has no meaning with regard to God, because He is timeless 112:2, without beginning and without end 57:3, so that in relation to Him, one day and a thousand years or 50 thousand years are all alike. Particularly in 57:3 the Almighty states that He is the First, the Last, as well as being Over and Under everything. This verse is in the context of the Almighty's knowledge, as opposed to the knowledge of a human being. Our knowledge is confined by where we are, as well as the time of our existence. His existence is not encompassed by these restrictions of serial time.

 

Again in 16:77,54:50,70:6-7 Allah speaks of the Day of Judgement as far to us yet "like the twinkling of an eye, or closer still" to Him implying not only its unpredictability and suddeness, but also the absence of any time-interval between God's decreeing it and its materialization: and this explains the phrase "or closer still" at the end of the verse.

 

The Quran is also repleat with verses speaking of the future, in the past tense. This is not only a literary device conveying the idea of certainty that the event will unfold, as is most often the case, but it also shows that from God's perspective these things have already occured yet to us they still need to come into existence.

 

There are some flagrant examples conveying this idea that from Allah's perspective things have already happened and yet to us they will unfold in the future. When the Quran speaks of the people who misuse the property of orphans under their care, and eating benefits from their wealth as "swallowing fire" ie as if they are already in hell without perceiving. It also says that man literally builds his place in the hereafter through his current actions, like living in parallel, and he will be made to "inherit" his abode after death. In 11:119 the Quran says the word of God is already fulfilled regarding Him filling hell with a certain category of people spoken of in the previous verses. This shows that the utterance of these words happened in a realm not bound by time, and that the filling will happen after the Day of Judgement which is closer than the twinkling of an eye to God, ie there is no time space between its decree and its unfolding from Allah's perspective.

hi we have some conclusion in shia islam too but it's about clay of people that both bad & good clay exists in everybody but we can choose to be bad or good & in judgment day these two types of clays will separate from each other like as native american quote that says what kind of wolf you feed .

Why did Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى create man, considering that He knew many of them would be bad and end up in the hellfire?
question
Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى knows the fate of all people, and at the same time we are sure that many people will end up in Hell, therefore, if one of those in Hell asks Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى why He created him, while He knew that he was going to end up there, what will His answer be?
Concise answer

1) Punishment from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى is a result of man willingly disregarding divine guidance and not listening to the call of the ''outer'' and "inner" messengers.

2) The knowledge of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى regarding the way His creatures will act in different situations, in no way results in them being forced to take that method of action, and in other words, Allah's knowledge reveals His creatures’ course of action, nothing else.......

As you correctly note, mankind has free will.  This means that evil people are responsible for their actions, and deserve to be punished for their evil.

But why would God create them in the first place if He knew they would end up in Hell?

Here is one reason.  To be given the opportunity to be good is a good thing.  God gave evil people the opportunity to be good.  Even though they didnt make use of this opportunity, it was still a good thing for God to give it to them

Here is another reason.  Consider what the world would be like if all the evil people in all history never existed.  It would be radically different wouldn't it?  For one, there wouldn't be much of the human evil that we know about from studying history.  But there also wouldn't be as much of the human good that was a direct response to this evil.  For instance, the sacrifice of Imam Hussain was an incredible good.  It was beautiful.  It contained many lessons for us, and has inspired generations of people to be better.  This sacrifice would not have occured had Yazid, Umar Sad, Shimr, etc not existed.

This shows that the existence of evil people, and evils actions, can potentially lead to even greater goods.  God, being all good, wants to maximise the good.  If possible, He wants to create the 'best possible world'.  This requires allowing evil.

Because good doers are good only in relation to bad doers, like night isnight only in relation to day, down is in relation to up, left in relation to right etc...

So God intends to create only the good and only the good doers, but in order to so so, He has permitted to exist the evil and the evil doers.  It is precisely due to God wisdom that evil exists because it serves a good purpose.  So the fact of the matter is that evil is not evil per se, It is a relative evil.  From God’s eyes, all is good because each and every single “atom” serves a good purpose.  Even Shaytan is good, He is not evil per se.  shaytan is evil in a relative sense, evil in relation to whether or not we should follow him.  But the function of shaytan to misguide is good in as much as it gives meaning to function of guidance by the prophets.  Had there been not miguider then there would be no need to send a guider.

In relation to the OP, it has a major false premise which is the (Christian) notion og ingrained sinfulness. In Islam, none is born good nor evil but with the potential to be both.

 

The concept of freewill and accountability that distinguishes mankind from the rest of creation 2:30,64:1-2 presupposes the free ability to do both good and evil. Man is therefore not a spiritualy static, stagnant entity. There is in him a mechanism, a driving force that creates a flux. It is al nafs allawwama/the self-reproaching soul 75:2 which much be nurtured and trained to confront the moral obstacles in one's life. The more it is trained the more it morphs into a positive state called al nafs al mutmainna 89:27 and the more it is neglected the more it changes into al nafs al'ammara bil sou'/the soul that incites to evil 12:53.

 

One has therefore to train and purify his spiritual side just as he would train and strengthen his physical body, and make it rise to the noblest spiritual station. In sura maarij for example, it speaks of man's tendancy to be hasty and of impatient disposition, somewhere else referred to as an ingrained weakness of human nature 4:28. This is the manifestation of man's animalistic side, seeking immidiate satisfaction of base desires regardless of the consequences, but then gives the instructions on how that tendency can be tamed, starting with regular prayer, then a commitment towards fellow humans in need, hearkening one's sense of moral accountability (the self-reproaching soul), understanding God's threat of chastisement and never feeling secure or self-conceited in the matter, maintaining all that is connected to sexuality inside specific boundaries, being trustworthy and act upon one's word 70:18-35.

 

The objective of human creation is spiritual purification through divine worship, which will ultimately earn it an eternal bliss and reward. Reward is thus the true reason for which God has made mankind. It is a great mercy, and besides that ultimate reward, God's mercy manifests itself in this world in innumerable aspects both inside and outside of man.

 

Inwardly, it is man's ability to perceive the existence of a single Creator 7:172-3 referred to in 30:30 as man's hardwired uprightness at birth.

 

It is well known that genetically, humans are programmed to to see life forces – a phenomenon called hypersensitive agency detection – everywhere we go, regardless of whether they’re there or not. Scientists say this might be an ancient defense mechanism that helped us avoid concealed danger, such as lions crouched in the grass or venomous snakes concealed in the bush, but that it also made us "vulnerable" to inferring the existence of invisible agents, such as a benevolent God. That mechanism, labelled "System 1" also encourages us to see things dualistically, meaning we have trouble thinking of the mind and body as a single unit. This tendency emerges quite early: young children, regardless of their cultural background, are inclined to believe that they have an immortal soul. For these reasons, many scholars believe that religion arose as “a byproduct of our cognitive disposition”, ie it would be cognitively unnatural to not believe, and to think of oneself in a non-dualistic way, which is why atheists must fight against that natural urge to believe in an existence with a purpose, that they are a part of something bigger, that life isn’t completely futile. Even those who explicitly describe themselves as non-believers, still harbor superstitious and non-rational thought processes. It is also established that inscribed in our DNA, there is a moral compass and sense of justice making us, since the youngest age, prefer good than bad actions.

 

It is the general guidance refered to 20:50 and instilled in all humans without exception.

 

That spiritual fabric, combined with the spiritual senses of perception 23:78,46:26,67:23,76:2 create an understanding of what is good and bad for the soul and helps hearkening the calls of the self-reproaching soul in place of the evil-inciting conscience whenever a moral crisis arises. It is with that implicit notion that the Quran in many places refers to the commendable deeds with the general term maaruf/recognized,accepted and to the evil deeds as munkar/rejected.

 

As stated above, the more the calls of the self-reproaching soul are hearkened and acted upon in place of the evil-inciting conscience, the more the soul is purified until it reaches a status referred to in 89:27 as al nafs al mutma'inna/the secure, peaceful soul. It is to be noted that this stage is something one can never permanently achieve in this life, one is constantly switching between these 3 states even though some spend more time in one state than the other depending on their spirituality, which is why God only addresses the righteous with this term once all matters are settled in the afterlife and the successfull are invited to enter their eternal blissful state. In consistency with that principle, the Quran in sura ghaashiya/88 pictures the successful as having an apeased and content face only in the hereafter while utter humility will be all over the face of the doomed. These 2 states are generally reversed in this life.

 

The opposite can also happen until one's spirituality becomes incapable of making the right moral choices and is sealed despite having been given the ability to perceive the right from the wrong 76:3,90:8-10,91:7-10"And (by) a soul and He Who proportioned it. And inspired it with its wickedness and its virtue. One has succeeded whoever purified it. And one has failed whoever corrupted it".

 

Outwardly, divine mercy manifests itself through revelations, that make a clear distinction between the right and wrong ways 2:38,16:9,92:12 and that direct mankind's spiritual senses of perception towards the innumerable signs attesting to the existence of God, the hereafter, a day of judgement and accountability. As it states in sura insan, immidiately after speaking of God's innate guidance, man is also actively guided with external factors 76:2-3"We made him a being indowed with hearing and sight, verily We have shown him the way (and it rests with him to prove himself) either grateful or ungrateful".

Rather than allowing evil it’s to expose evils. That’s why hypocrites are worse than idol worshipers. Think back to the story of Iblis, the first hypocrite/he was a devout worshipper so much so all the jinns and angels would tell Allah how great of a worshipper he was, nobody was more devout than Iblis amongst creations at the time. But guess what, time came and he was given a command and he refused. Thus the exposing his disbelief and arrogance. God gave a great example that day it was so important that we donate any evil as shaitan of which Iblis is the epitome of. God wishes to expose the hidden breast. Because of this the humans of earth are worse than shaitan(I.e yazid(la) bani ummaya(la)) lol shaitan hasn’t even realize he’s been bowing down to humans for a long time. These men born of clay truly are beasts hiding in plain sight they are the definition of evil and wrongness. And this whole story is about right vs wrong

Those who hearts would never surrender in disbelief and hypocrisy. And they’re wrongdoings will be met with justice(eternal hellfire, after all syeda will tell Allah all the injustice done to her and ask for her justice, you don’t think those who have angered her and hurt her will be met with the minimum of eternal hellfire?) nay they require the maximum...sayeda let us fulfill your dua....

The Bible compares hellfire to the flood, wherein the world was once destroyed by water, in the days if Noah, but is being kept now for final destruction by fire...

They will say, "Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation." For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace. And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. - 2 Peter 3:4-18

we have same as this two paragraph in Holy Quran too but for us when Imam Mahdi (aj) cames with prophet Jesus (as) current earth becomes like as heaven & we will use all of it's benefits & after passing it whole of earth will destroy by great earthquakes that it beomes like a flat field for attending of whole people for judgment & they will enter the old heaven & hell based on judgment of their actions.

This question is related to creation. I have read that when Allah (AWJ) ordered to begin creation to angels, He (AWJ) order an angel to bring soft clay which was of good quality and also ordered to bring hard clay which was of low quality. He (AWJ) then said: "I would create from this (soft clay) humble servants whom I will reward for their obedience and for I will create from that (hard clay) those creation which will disobey me and I will put it into Hell". Then He (AWJ) merged both clays and created Adam a.s. Thus, every human is born with good thoughts and bad thoughts.

Allah (AWJ) fashioned us such that we are in constant struggle even though we are sitting idle. We have thoughts from both sides. Some people say that Allah (AWJ) says: "I would fill jin and ins into hell". And they interpret it as: "I will put Jins and Humans into hell". That is wrong interpretation according to some  but rather the word "Jin" is used for  aggressive thoughts such as "anger and obstinacy" and "ins" is derived from "uns" which means  "love and care". Thus, anyone who used properties of "jin" and "ins" for their own needs and wishes and rather than according to orders of Allah (AWJ) then surely these are bad habits and are destined for bad place as hell. But if "jins" and "ins" properties are used for good purposes and in obedience of Allah (AWJ) then it deserve a better place. Choice is ours, Allah (AWJ) just mentions you consequences.

If Yazeed had withdrawn demanding allegiance from Imam Hussain a.s, even then Imam Hussain a.s would have been victorious and bad "jins" and "ins" of Yazid would have been destroyed and we would have mentioned as to how Imam Hussain a.s stood on his stand. But problem is that people consider religion for mockery due to their wishes and deeds. Allah (AWJ) do not want bad for anything and neither want to leave his creation blind and without marifah. He (AWJ) says that stick to me and follow me for I am the way. But many do not because of ignorance. 

This is our choice whether we want to enter into heaven of hell.

Wsalam bro

Authubillah am not blaming Him سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى for our actions, but he has knowledge of which of His creation will do something deserving eternal damnation. So why did He create us. Who am I to disrespect Him or to question Him. For I am only following his command to think and to reflect, and insha’Allah I will get an answer.

To this question, why did he name heaven as heaven and name hell as hell ? His creation, His choice. He (AWJ) knows who will go to heaven and who goes to Hell, But He (AWJ) also says that I have decreed "Badaa" also translated as "Change of Nature", so in our lives, a person who may have lived pious life may end into hell due to his final decisions before death and a person who lived all of his life in sins may end as a believer. Do not ignore "Badaa", or it may also happen, a person born as believer but got disbeliever and then believer and then disbeliever and then believer and then died. He (AWJ) knows but we do not know about each other, so, we should as an obedient servants accept his decision as we obey our parents. He (AWJ) is more than our parents bro, we should realize this at least.

It is matter of how much you gain knowledge about him, do you live your life for your own sake and if you live for your own sake then hereafter is not for you. Or if you live for the sake of Allah (AWJ) to help people, to be nice and be your critic and mentor to improve your being. Then you deserve a high status.

I read in Quran that when people of Bani Israel saw cow that samri  bring with him and saw their mooing, they begin to worship it. However, Allah says: "why did not they ponder that cow did not guide them to anything good except mooing". So, we are to think whether anything which we see is helping us in guidance or not.

True ignorance was created to understand importance of knowledge  but people have taken it for other purpose for which it was not created.

Salam yes they normalise the mocking of belief in God and religion. Even Muslim youth is accepting such liberal values via the positive reinforcement of these messages.

Even satanic subliminal messages in the music industry has an effect on the subconscious mind.

Wallahu A’lam
