the answer is that the attribute of God is that God loves. His name is "Al wudood" which means the one who loves so God is the possessor of this attribute if the creation is not there, that does not mean this attribute is not there. The answer is simple God is not dependent on the Creation to have the attribute of love

If you are asking whether women are created with the sole purpose of being serene for men, and whether its important for them to marry and do that to achieve salvation. The answer is no. Quran 51:56 And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. Women are subject to the same religious obligations as men such as prayer, fasting, ...

Allah (the only, unique God in Islamic beliefs), created/creates two types of creations: Creations who don't have their own will: they're مسخّرة or مسيّرة (unfree). Those creations act according to the criteria or routine Allah specified that they will follow. In other simpler words they're "automated", and those creations are not judged to go to Hell or ...

In many different verses of the Quran, we are urged to look at the world around us and to think about its creation. Basically, the existence of other planets allow us to understand certain names of God, such as the All-Powerful (القادر) and the All-Knowing (العالم). So these extra planets give us an opportunity to think and understand the names and ...

I think it is (evolution in general) because of this verse: Noble Quran 71:14 'Seeing that it is He that has created you in diverse stages?

In Short: No, neither with the original evolution theory nor with theistic version. In length: First I strongly recommend you watch the documentary movie named "Expelled" that is about the war between two major theories: evolution vs intelligent design. The movie is somewhat highly criticized but you must see the movie before judging the two sides. Once you ...

Since not a clear explanation is given in Qur'an explaining things specifically as to why did Allah create other planets, but the reason is given as why did he create things on earth other than humans, thereby applicable and hence helpful to answer as to why there are other planets too. And the earth, We have made it plain and cast in it mountains and We ...

First part of your question: Why hasn't god distroyed the devil? http://quran.com/7/14 [Satan] said, "Reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected." http://quran.com/7/15 [ Allah ] said, "Indeed, you are of those reprieved." The satan begged god to allow him to prove to god that he (devil) is better than man. God delayed the devils ...

Living things were created from water: Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe? (Al-'Anbiya' 21:30) Allah has created every [living] creature from water. And of them are those that move on their bellies, and of ...

Allah created everything for a purpose, but excess or incorrect placement of anything can be dangerous. E.g. water is amazing and life for us. However, if it enters your lungs, it does the opposite. Similarly, fire is amazing, it helps us cook food so that we can eat and be healthy and living, it's helpful for life. But imagine the same fire surrounding ...

No,we already know that angels are made up of light and jinns are made up of fire. The word 'everything' is according to the context of that verse. In that verse Arabic word for 'everything' used is 'kulla'. For example: Suppose you little brother is eating chips and you asked that you wanted to eat some. Then he said I ate everything and nothing is left. ...

Use of robots that do not resemble creatures is permissible. What is not permitted is the resemblance to Allah's creation as quoted in Abi Zur'a's hadith (also in Sahih al-Bukhari 7559) in your question: "Who are most unjust than those who try to create something like My creation?" Even if this were to be a matter where opinions differ, there is an ...

There is nothing in the Qur’an or sunnah that indicate who lived on Earth before Adam. Rather the reports that speak of this are the opinions of those who wrote the Tafsir, among the companions and tabieen(Those who followed the companions). To know what they have said go back to Tafsir At-Tabri, Ibn Kathir, and Tafsir "Tahreer and Tanweer". In a nutshell, ...

Mr. Zeeshan answered part of it. The perfection Allah mentions is that of our nefs and spiritual side; see Quran suras 91 and 95. We are granted perfect nefs as individuals, that is in perfect submission to Allah, when we are first born. (91:7) Wa Nafsin Wa Mā Sawwāhā (And the human nefs that (Allah) formed to perfection) (91:8) Fa'alhamahā Fujūrahā ...

The way I see it, in this verse Allah is addressing those who are in doubt about the resurrection by providing them with a simple example which is the creation of human beings. There are a two possible meanings both of which can be proven to be right: 1.The verse is just stating the certain stages through which a human being comes to existence without ...

I think this is just a matter of you throwing yourself into confusion with non-sequitirs (ie, fallacious connections). The false connection is in this statement you made: "So when we compare the ayaths we can see that all the three verses (mentioned above) starts by referring the seven heavens and then says about the stars created which are referred as ...

The only thing Islam mentions is that there were other creations on planet earth before human beings; Creatures that are "smart" non-animals like Jinns for example. Logically speaking, there must have existed a wild and natural life including animals and plants. But Islam does not mention anything specific about the topic (as far as I know) and such things ...

According to Islam, God cannot be restricted by time or space...so by asking who God loved "before" he created the world doesn't seem to make any Islamic sense. It's like saying God can be restricted by time similar to humans and that He did not know the believers before He created them.

It's hard to me to answer this in English but i'll try my best. First we have to answer one thing. Does ALLAH need anything to survive or to be a God?!!! Of course NO. Then we have to say that ALLAH doesn't in need for anybody and anything. This will be the rule that will guide us. Now When ALLAH want to make a thing He just says Be and it will be, ...

Your key question is: Are there several universes? Your secondary questions (indicated through your clarification) are: Where is Allaah? What are the heavens that Allaah has mentioned in the Qur'aan? Is it safe to say we can never fully understand Allaah? What are the capabilities of Allaah? Is knowledge only what is in the Qur'aan? Are there ...

I'm no scholar of course, and this is not a fatwa, however: We have been told that: Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, "Be," and it is. Source: http://quran.com/2/117 i.e. he can do anything and everything he wills. So I think if Allah wanted to change time he could, but I don't think he will ...

Maybe there is a reason to why Allah created other planets for us but scientists haven't discovered it yet. Remember how people believed that the Earth is flat? Maybe we are going to know why he made other planets, we just need the right concept and explanation or better technology to prove the reason why we need other planets around the Earth.

Well, this is a tricky question for one principal reason: Germ Theory came into existence only in recent times and no writings, religious or otherwise, ever talked about germs before that. (In fact, the first person to suggest that doctors should wash their hands, namely Ignaz Semmelweis, was ridiculed and ended up in a nervous breakdown). So there would ...

I can't help but point out that water is literally produced from fire: Flames consist primarily of carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen and nitrogen. (Wikipedia) E.g. for methane combustion, we have the following chemical reaction: (Image source: Wikimedia commons) But I don't think this is the way it's intended to be interpreted. The Qur'an also says: ...

There is proportionality throughout the universe. and we even came to know that gravitational waves exist. so if our star (sun) were to disappear one day it would disrupt the design and we wont exist (because gravity). in such a case how could stars be thrown at the devils? Are you saying that the verse means that the sun is actually thrown at the ...

The purpose of God is to be.... well, God. To do whatever He wants. No one talks about it because "purpose" applies to what is created with a reason in mind (eg, humans created by God to worship, camels created by God for riding, pens created by humans for writing, nests created by birds for sheltering their eggs, etc). It is not applicable to God since no ...

Someone very beautifully answered this question here. To summarize, Allah is above all constraints like space, time, energy and matter. These cannot be applied to Allah like it does to His creation. Allah was, is and will be. There is no beginning to Him nor an End. So to ask what Allah was doing before / now or after is illogical. If you are asking from ...

What the Quran states about Purpose: In Quran, surah Saad, verse 27 reads: وَمَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَاءَ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا بَاطِلًا ۚ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ ظَنُّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ۚ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنَ النَّارِ [Al-Qur’an 38:27, translator: Arberry] We have not created the heavens and earth, and what between them is, for vanity; ...
