This question already has an answer here:

I know that God Almighty is able to do all thing and I made dua to God to reverse time back till the moment He created the Pen and to change and add many things including life etc.

I told this my mother and she said: "Stop right there. Not even in millions and trillions years in future God will reverse time back for anyone. Even if He did, He did with a purpose to show the people that He is able to do all things and that's it. And if one makes dua to Him, then He'll not reverse the time back."

How can I explain to my Christian mother that one does not know Allah's decision?

  • @Kilise Don't ever say this that God didn't know that I would wish for certain things,coz God Almighty knows everything,the past,present and future and He knows when I'm gonna wish a thing also. – Alex A Sep 8 '17 at 12:25
  • this is what I am saying, if God already know what you would wish for trillion years ago, why would he now, turn back the time and grant you the wish? He could have done it trillion years ago since he already knew you would wish something like that.... This kind of thinking will only make you end up in paradoxes – Kilise Sep 8 '17 at 12:35
  • Please add that hadith or reference of what happened to the prophet so we know what you based your question on – Kilise Sep 8 '17 at 12:43
  • @Kilise Well,He did this once at the time of prophet Muhammad and prophet Muhammad asked God to reverse time back for a person who didn't payed,so I was thinking that if prophet Muhammad asked why shall I not try?At least I give a shoot.And because I would like to ask Him to reverse time back so that I can have second chance to build a bright near future. – Alex A Sep 8 '17 at 12:46
