I'm pretty new to this site and are not so sure how it works. If any part of this question is inapproriate please forgive me.
Most people in this world will at some point ask themselves, why were we created? what will happen once we're dead? how should we live this life? so on and so forth. Most muslims were given these answers way before they were born through the Holy Quran.
However, there is one question that has been lingering in my mind for quite some time and that is; why does Allah create? To ensure full understanding of the context let me explain the question a bit more.
Think about every event that is contained in the Quran, from the creation of the angels, humans, the advent of Satan, how the Adam couple was sent to the earth, the life and stories of all 25 prophets, to the present modern age (all the wars, revolutions, etc) and soon the judgement day, where the non-believers will be sent to Hell while true muslims go to heaven.
Now think of all these events collectively and think, why does all of these needs to happen? Don't get me wrong I truly believe that Allah is the most powerful and because of that there is nothing that He needs nor there is nothing He can't do. Therefore why create? Why does these events needs to happen? Why do we, the humans who have all these tendencies to do exactly the opposite of what He wanted us to do, has to exist? I'm not questioning His power or the concept of His existence nor am I saying that we should just die. I just simply wanted to know this so I can understand better my purpose in life and be a better servant because right now, I think my belief in Islam is shaking because of this question.
If this question or any part of it is not supposed to be asked by a true muslim, please point it out and I will never speak of it again.
Sorry if this is too lengthy,
