Why Were We Created?

Before the beginning, there was God and nothing else. Then God created the angles to carry out certain tasks in areas that cannot stand the manifested presence of God .

Al –Araaf 143

When Moses came to our audience, and his Lord spoke to him he said, “My Lord, let me look at you and see You,” He said, “You cannot see Me, but look at the mountain, if it stays in its place, then you can see Me.” Then, when his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, He caused it to crumble and Moses fell unconscious. When he came to, he said, “Glory be to You, I repent to You, and I am the first to believe.”


However, one of the archangels who was given vast and special powers and authority, namely Satan, became ridden with pride, started to develop haughty ideas. He thought he was powerful enough to be a partner of God. Since these ideas were simply internal thoughts, none of the angles were aware of Satan’s outrageous haughtiness. God of course was fully aware.


Al-Baqarah 30

Then your Lord said to the angles, “I am placing a representative on earth.” They said, “Shall you place therein one who would corrupt therein, and shed blood, while we braise Your glory and hold You sacred?” He said, “I know what you do not know.”


God could have punished Satan, that would have left the rest of the angles puzzled. They would have wondered why God treated Satan in that manner when he had done nothing wrong. It was the second choice exposing Satan.

In order to expose Satan as a haughty rebel, God decided to create a creature from a lowly materials, clay, namely Adam. Then He asked the angles to fall prostrate before Adam. They all fell prostrate, but not Satan. Thus Satan was exposed as a rebel.


Al-Baqarah 34

Then we said to the angles, “Fall prostrate before Adam. “They fell prostrate, except Iblis (Satan): he refused, turned arrogant, and thus, he became a rebel.


The angles see God and know that He is the Lord of the universe. Consequently, God wanted to show the angles a creature who submit completely to God, without ever seeing Him. And this is the second purpose behind creating us. Now that Satan has been exposed and punished, the only purpose of our life is to discover God, reach Him, and come to the conclusion that He alone is king and master, without ever seeing Him. When you thus fulfill the purpose of your life, God is proud of you.

Al –Dhaariyaat 56

I have not created the jinns and the humans except to worship Me alone.


The inventors of hadith, inspired by satan, stated that the angles were created from light. Since the Quran states that Satan was created from fire.

Al –Araaf 12

God said, “what prevented you from prostrating, when I ordered you?” He said, “I am better than he, You created me from fire, and created him from clay.”


There are two types of creatures on earth who are undergoing the test, namely, the humans and jinns. The humans are descendants of Adam, and the jinns are descendants of Satan. Both Adam and satan sinned, and both were banished to the lowest universe.

Al Baqarah 36,37,38

But the devil duped them out of it, causing their eviction therefrom. We said, “Go down as enemies to each other, and on earth will be your habitation and sustenance for a while.”

Then Adem received from his Lord words, whereby He redeemed him. He is the redeemer, the merciful.

We said, “Go down therefrom, all of you, and when guidance comes to you from Me, those who follow My guidance have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.”


The fact is that we were not forced into this situation. The Quran teaches us that we were given a choice, and we decided, each one of us, that we wanted to undergo the test. On the other hand, the choice of happiness or misery, both in this life and the hereafter, is completely and absolutely up to us.


Yoonus 62,64

Absolutely, God’s allies have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

They have deserved happiness in this life, as well as in the hereafter. God’s decisions are never changeable. This is the greatest triumph.


Ta Ha 124

“As for him who disregards My message, he will have a miserable life, and we raise him, on the day of resurrection, blind.”


We are absolutely free to choose belief in God or disbelief, this is God decree throughout Quran.


Al –Muzzammil 19

This is a reminder, whoever wills shall seek a bath to his Lord.


If we decided to seek Him and heed His message, He creates the circumstances that augment our guidance.


Al –Araaf 146,147

I will divert from My revelations those who commit pride on earth, without justification. Consequently, even if they see all kinds of miracles, they will not believe therein, and when they see the path of guidance they will not accept it as their path, and when they see the path of evil they will accept it as their path. That is because they have rejected our revelations and disregarded them.

Those who reject our revelations, and the meeting of the hereafter, their works are nullified. Have they not deserved the retribution by their actions?


Yoonus 99,100

If your Lord wills, He can make all the people on earth believe. Would you force the people to believe?


Al –qasas 56

You cannot guide those you love. God is the one who guides whomever He wills, for He is fully aware of those who deserve the guidance.


The Quran teaches us that God is extremely displeased with those who prohibit anything is not specifically prohibited in Quran.

If you worship God alone, you follow His instructions alone.


Al –Baqarah 173

He only prohibits for you animals that die of themselves, blood, the meat of pigs, and animals sacrificed in any name other than God’s. However, if one is forced (to eat these), without being malicious or deliberate, then he incurs no sin. God is forgiver, merciful.


Deth is great mystery to most people. Not so for the students of Quran. The Quran tells us exactly what death is like. Death is exactly like sleeping, the period between death and resurrection passes like one hour of sleep.


Al –Room 55

On the day of resurrection, the sinners will swear that they had lasted one hour. That is how wrong they were.
