Why did God create the universe?
God Almighty created the universe with its living and inanimate beings, so God Almighty created in it and perfected it in its making, and this creation did not come in vain, but rather that everything in the universe has wisdom and a purpose. [المؤمنون: 115].
God Almighty created man
God Almighty created man and distinguished him from the rest of the living creatures by possessing the mind. المؤمن بإيمانه بالحكمة التي خلق من أجلها بينما نفى الكافر ذلك، فقال تعالى: (إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لآَيَاتٍ لأُولِي الأَلْبَابِ الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَى جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذَا بَاطِلا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ) [آل عمران : 190-191].
The wisdom of human creation
- God Almighty created man to live in the earth and to be a caliph on it, as well as to know the extent of God’s knowledge, the perfection of His power, and the wonderful creation of His creation. To reward the believers and unbelievers for their deeds.
- God Almighty has honored man and distinguished him with reason and preferred him over many things that He created with a preference. God distinguished man from the beasts that sleep, eat and reproduce only. Only the wise person knows the wisdom of God Almighty’s creation, unlike the ignorant and ungrateful who deny the judgment of their creation. We have seen a lot of heaven from jinn and humanity have hearts that they do not understand, and they have eyes that they do not see, and they are not. [الأعراف: 179].
- God Almighty created man and made him in life and death a test and trial, to know who can succeed in it and who is steadfast on the truth, and who ignores and disobeys and takes the path of error.
- Man was created to worship God Almighty, obey Him, unify Him, know His attributes and names and their meanings, contemplate the greatness of God Almighty, and fight all forms of misguidance, ignorance and corruption that exist on earth.
The beginning of God’s creation of Adam, peace be upon him
God Almighty created Adam, peace be upon him, to show his miraculous workmanship and ability to create him from solid dirt and water to transform him into a being that radiates life and distinguished him with reason and the ability to think, while God Almighty created angels and jinn from nothing.
