Question
Why did Allah create us in tribulation, struggle, and in social disparity. why didn't Allah initially create us in harmony and in a utopia environment without injustice, and without evil. Why does Good and Evil have to exist why can't it all be Good. Why have free will if Allah knows that people would do wrong. WHY CANT LIFE BE LIKE THE WAY HEAVEN/JENNAH IS DESCRIBED, where there is no trials and no tests. with everyone having good thoughts and good outlook. no evil and no bad doings. why did Allah create evil. I am sorry if this is too much for asking. I been looking for an answer for this and i have never gotten a satisfying answer.i am a muslim and I want to make my iman stronger. thank you.

Answer
Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

Assalmalaikum

Dear Brother,

[Quran 17:85] ... of knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to you, (O men!)"

Here we have to agree to one of the greatest fact that our knowledge and thinking power is limited. Allah is more knowledgeable than us and he created everything for a purpose, and Allah knows the complete logic behind all this.

However humans are one of the best creations of Allah and he did a favour upon us of Free will (which is not the case with his other creations). Allah also listens to us and answers our supplications. Its we who refuse to accept what he gives us and always complain.

[Quran 2:186] When My servants ask you (Prophet Muhammed) concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every supplicant when he calls on Me. Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me, That they may walk in the right way.

The whole list of creations are for humankind to enjoy. The different kinds of fruits, the earth, the water, the animals etc etc, Allah created for us so that we can enjoy them and thank him in return.

[Quran 53:39] That man can have nothing but what he strives for;
[Quran 53:40] That (the fruit of) his striving will soon come in sight:
[Quran 53:41] Then will he be rewarded with a reward complete;
[Quran 53:42] That to your Lord is the final Goal;

[Rad 13:11] ...... Verily never will Allah/God change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (with their own souls).

[Quran 30:4]..... With Allah/God is the Decision, in the past and in the Future...........

[Quran 67:1] Blessed be He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things has Power.

[Quran 67:2] He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed, and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving.

However the other being that enjoyed the same benefits was the Jinns. one of them refused to obey Allah and played a trick on the humans which eventually got us out of Paradise. However Allah was not to be blamed, it was our mistake. But see how Allah still showed mercy upon us ? he sent us to the earth, provided all the means of livelihood, protected us from the evils of iblis and his troops, and promised us a safe passage to Paradise.

All that counts, is whome one trusts. If you trust Allah, you are through, and if you trust iblis, you are ruined.
