Why God Created Evil? Answering-Atheist
"There is nothing like Him" (42:11)
Is God Pure, Good, Loving and Fair? If so, then where does evil, hatred and injustice come from?
Answer: God created Evil mainly to test us, some of the reasons for creating evil are known while others unknown. Allah Said: "And God knows, while you know not". The Holy Quran Surah 2: al-Baqarah.
Allah tells us He is Pure, Loving, and absolutely Just in every respect. He says He is the Best of Judges. He also tells us the life we are in here is a test. He has created everything existing and He created whatever happens as well. There is nothing in this existence except what He has created. He also says in the Quran He created evil (although He is not evil). He is using this as one of the many tests for us.Consider people who do so much evil in the earth and then live to a ripe old age in the splendor and wealth of their ill-gotten gains and die without ever being taken to task for their deeds. Where is the justice or fairness in this? Allah provides a clear answer for us in Quran as to what is in store for these most evil of people:
Among the reasons are:
1- God created man to test him. He give us mind and wisdom to think. It is our will to do good or bad. Allah says in Quran
"[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed - and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving " Quran 67:2
2- Allah tells us that He has tell mankind (Souls) about the good and bad in the world
"By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it; And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;-" Quran 91:7-8
3- The world is only a place on enjoyment and fun. This is the real test
"A brief enjoyment in this world! - and then unto Us will be their return, then We shall make them taste the severest torment because they used to disbelieve [in Allah, belie His Messengers, deny and challenge His proofs, signs, verses, etc.]" Noble Quran 10:70
"Know ye (all), that the life of this world is but play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying, (in rivalry) among yourselves, riches and children." Quran 57:20
4- We will be judged by our deeds. Not even a small injustice will be done to a soul
That Day mankind will proceed in scattered groups that they may be shown their deeds. So whoever does good equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it. And whoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom, shall see it. [Noble Quran 99:6-8]
5- God is the Lord of the worlds and as a such he is the creator of everything wither good or bad
6- God created evil as a display of power, as a manifestation and a confirmation that he can create good and the opposite of good. and that he is the only one who can do that. life started with him and so is death. and as he created life from nothing he also can create death and the reasons of death.
7- God created evil as a trail. He said "35. Every soul will taste death. And We test you with evil and with good as trial; and to Us you will be returned"
The Holy Quran Surah 21: al-Anbiya’
8- To affirm our needs and limitations. for you can only know the value of health during sickness, you would know the value of food only when you're hungry and the same with richness and poverty, knowledge and ignorance and so on.
9- Evil is created as a reminder because abandonment can lead people to disbelieve; Allah (SW) said:
"Indeed, man transgresses, Because he sees himself self-sufficient."
The Holy Quran Surah 96:6-7
10- God created evil to prevent greater one (like not getting on faulty airplane) we get upset because we missed the flight but soon we heard some tragedy happened. then we realize it was a bliss to miss.
11- Allah will even judge the Muslims by their deeds. This life is a test for every human. Quran states:
"Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe," and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test). Or those who do evil deeds think that they can outstrip Us (i.e. escape Our Punishment)? Evil is that which they judge! Whoever hopes for the Meeting with Allah, then Allah's Term is surely coming. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. And whosoever strives, he strives only for himself. Verily, Allah is free of all wants from the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns, and all that exists). Those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah (Monotheism) and in Messenger Muhammad peace be upon him , and do not apostate because of the harm they receive from the polytheists], and do righteous good deeds, surely, We shall remit from them their evil deeds and shall reward them according to the best of that which they used to do. And We have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents, but if they strive to make you join with Me (in worship) anything (as a partner) of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do. And for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah and other items of Faith) and do righteous good deeds, surely, We shall make them enter in (the entrance of) the righteous (i.e. in Paradise). Of mankind are some who say: "We believe in Allah," but if they are made to suffer for the sake of Allah, they consider the trial of mankind as Allah's punishment, and if victory comes from your Lord, (the hypocrites) will say: "Verily! We were with you (helping you)." Is not Allah Best Aware of what is in the breast of the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns)? Verily, Allah knows those who believe, and verily, He knows the hypocrites [i.e. Allah will test the people with good and hard days to discriminate the good from the wicked (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test)]." [Noble Quran 29:2-11]
12- Creator of everything is Allah.
"Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction. But if good comes to them, they say, "This is from Allah "; and if evil befalls them, they say, "This is from you." Say, "All [things] are from Allah ." So what is [the matter] with those people that they can hardly understand any statement?" [Quran 4:78]
"Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is, over all things, Disposer of affairs."[Quran 39:62]
13- Even Bible agrees that God created evil
"I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things." (Isaiah 45:7)
“And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.” (Exodus 32:14)
14- Allah stress us on doing good deeds to earn reward
For those who believe and do righteous deeds are Gardens as hospitable homes for their (good) deeds. (Quran 32:19)
For those who believe and work righteous deeds there will be Gardens of Bliss. (Quran 31:8)
Allah created Angles and give them Wisdom but not will, Allah created jinns and blessed them with Will but not wisdom but, Allah created humans and give them wisdom and will to do what they can, will to choose what they want to do, He give humns mind and knowledge to thing what is bad or good for him and to judge it
And not equal are the good deed and the bad. Repel [evil] by that [deed] which is better; and thereupon the one whom between you and him is enmity [will become] as though he was a devoted friend. [Quran 41:34]
Allah Knows Best!
