Salam. I have a question whether Allah punishes all those who are not Muslims. In cases where the subject is born into a family following another religion, who has chosen to believe his ancestors and has done good deeds throughout his life outweighing his sins, will Allah punish him?

I am a Muslim (not very orthodox) and I am proud to be born into a Muslim family. I hope I will learn a lot through this site. Thank you, may peace be upon you.

@kteerShorta, I seek refuge with Allah azza wal jall from what you are suggesting. With that said lets proceed, inshallah, it is true that the word makr at it root means deception or deciever amongst similar words, what you are negating is the fact that the attributes of Allah are beautiful and perfect one cannot attribute imperfection to Allah azza wal jall. Now, in the quran this word is used in a negative content towards the disbelievers who are plotting to decieve Allah and His messenger saws. The quran is the words of Allah and when Allah used this word it was against those that were kufar from the root word kuf which means to conceal or cover up and what they were concealing or covering up was the Haqq of Allah. So when Allah azza wal jall used this word against them it is not imperfection for Allah is Al Hakim, Al Alim, the wise , the all knowing, and the best to plott and decieve those who plot to decieve Him, for there is no ayah in the quran that says Allah plot or decieves the believers for that would be imperfection which Allah can never be. This word is directed only to hypocrites, polytheist, and those who reject the ayats of Allah and attempts to put out the light of islam. This the haqq, I pray Allah azza wal jall forgives you and guides you to the ultimate truth. Salaam

وعليكم السلام و رحمة الله وبركاته

If the message of truth (Islam) came to a person and they rejected it (or chose to remain ignorant when they could've learned) - then yes. They will be punished by Allah سبحانه و تعالى. As the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said that those (Christians, etc) who hear of him and reject him will take a seat in Hellfire. But if they never heard of Islam, then Allah سبحانه و تعالى is most fair.. He will test them in the afterlife, according to ahadith.

Hey Im new here, but would it not be extremely unfair to punish someone when in the Qur'an openly states many times that Allah is the 'best deceiver'. So when people reject or does not understand, then Allah will punish them hard for not believing in him Allah...

Isn´t this manipulation really? Is Allah the Lord Mad Heat?

Maybe you are referring to the verses which say He is the best 'plotter' or 'planner' (I've never read a translation say that He is the 'best deceiver' nor is that one of His attributes). Allah سبحانه و تعالى is able to deceive the disbelievers (who choose to fight against the truth), but He does not deceive those who are genuine to the truth. So no.. not 'manipulation.' If you are punished, it is because of what you yourself chose. Hope that helps :)

The Qur'an openly states many times that Allah is the 'best deceiver'. The root word used in these verses is Makr which means deception.

IN THE NAME OF GOD!The Quran says:3-And lo! of the People of the Scripture there are some who believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto you and that which was revealed unto them, humbling themselves before Allah. They purchase not a trifling gain at the price of the revelations of Allah. Verily their reward is with their Lord. Lo! Allah is swift to take account. ( 199 )...The Quran says:57-On the day when thou (Muhammad) wilt see the believers, men and women, their light shining forth before them and on their right hands, (and wilt hear it said unto them): Glad news for you this day: Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein ye are immortal. That is the supreme triumph. ( 12 ) On the day when the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women will say unto those who believe: Look on us that we may borrow from your light! it will be said: Go back and seek for light! Then there will separate them a wall wherein is a gate, the inner side whereof containeth mercy, while the outer side thereof is toward the doom. ( 13 ) They will cry unto them (saying): Were we not with you? They will say: Yea, verily; but ye tempted one another, and hesitated, and doubted, and vain desires beguiled you till the ordinance of Allah came to pass; and the deceiver deceived you concerning Allah; ( 14 ) So this day no ransom can be taken from you nor from those who disbelieved. Your home is the Fire; that is your patron, and a hapless journey's end. ( 15 ) Is not the time ripe for the hearts of those who believe to submit to Allah's reminder and to the truth which is revealed, that they become not as those who received the scripture of old but the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened, and many of them are evil-livers. ( 16 ) Know that Allah quickeneth the earth after its death. We have made clear Our revelations for you, that haply ye may understand. ( 17 )
