i read the qur'an regularly and know that god created us to worship him. now in other verses he claim to be a devine intitty and don't need humans.
to me thinking about it won't make sense. why creat us? why live in a war with satan that we humans never created ? why put us in this sitution where a lot of people would suffer hell because of letting satan live tell judgement day trying to decieve us. just because he wouldn't bow to adam? why wouldn't god banished satan to hell instead of giving him a long life filled with deceiving innocente humans? why we(humans) suffer from a hard journey of life because adam ate from the tree? adam mistaken only ONCE yet god did not returned him to heaven(in his life time). now how is it fair to live this life(i mean earth instead of heaven) because the mistake of our father? as far as i know islam stressed that if one mistaken it is his own not all his friends or family?
i persude these questions to my teachers in school. yet , they seem to avoid a direct anwser. they keep saying(it's written in qur'an . so it's god wisdom not to explain that much or that humans can't understand these Q's) now how am i suppose to blieve when hearing these kind of answers
wa aleikum salam
Dear Muslim brother First of all much that you wrote is true. But everything is a big test. If you don´t keep on believing than you have failed in the test. Think of it like this, you have I big test tomorrow and you will have to study very much to get great result. And the next day you are there making this big test the only thing that can help you is your knowledge. Have you been studying much? Have you come prepared? It´s just like that with this world, you need much ilm (knowledge) to get to the high levels of paradise, you need to pray to even be rewarded for you good deeds and to be forgiven for your sins. And you have to always know that where every you are Allah sees you and He is testing you with everything to see if you are a righteous and honest with Allah, so that he can have mercy upon you on the day of judgment. My final advice for you is to get more ilm (knowledge)

5 Reasons On Why Does Allah Test Us
1) Reveal the Patient from the Impatient:
“And certainly, We shall test you with a bit of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits. But give glad tidings to the patient ones who, when afflicted with a calamity, say: “Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.” They are those upon whom are the blessings, descend from their Lord, and they receive His Mercy, and it is they who are guided.” (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:155-157)
“And among mankind is he who worships Allah as if he were upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content with it;. But if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face. He loses both this World and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss.”(Surah al-Haj 22:11)
2) Remove Our Sins and Reward the Righteous:
“And, when he was old enough to walk with him, he said: “O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you, so what do you think?” He said: “O my father! Do that which you are commanded, if Allah Wills, you will find me to be of the patient.” Then, when they had both submitted, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead, and We called out to him: “O Ibrahim! You have fulfilled the dream!” Verily! Such do We reward the good-doers.” (Surah as-Saffat :102-7)
3) Purify the Ranks and Distinguish the Righteous from the Wicked:
“And when the believers saw the Confederates, they said: “This is what Allah and His Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger had spoken the truth,” and it only added to their faith and submissiveness.” (Surah Ahzaab 33:22)
“Allah might make easy the affairs of the people of evil so that they may increase in sin and corruption, and so that they might increase in their buildup of sins and crimes. Then, he may deal with them in this World or the Hereafter – depending on His Wisdom and Decision – on account of this sinister buildup of deeds! On the other hand, He may also prevent them from ease so that they would increase in evil and sin and crimes and suffocation, eventually losing hope in the Mercy of Allah, resulting in an increase in their buildup of evil and misguidance. Likewise, Allah can make easy the affairs of the people of good so that they may become established in their righteous actions and carry out as much of them as they can while increasing in their sustenance, so that they may thank Him for these blessings with their hearts, tongues, and pleasant actions. With all of this, they increase in a buildup of good deeds that they rightfully deserve with Allah because of their righteousness and because of the good that Allah Knows is in their hearts. On the other hand, he may also prevent them from ease in order to observe their patience upon this state, as well as their confidence and hope in their Lord, their relaxation at the realization of His Power, their being pleased with Him as their only Lord – and He is better than all others – resulting in an increase in their buildup of good.”
(Fi Dhilal al-Qur’an)
4) Emphasize the Hardships of This World in Comparison to the Hereafter: “Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the kingdom, and He is Able to do all things. The One Who has created death and life in order to test you and see which of you is best in deed, and He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.” (Surah al-Mulk 67:1-2)
5) Expose the Reality of the Human Being: “Verily, We have created man from drops of mixed semen in order to test him, so We made him hearer, seer. Verily, We showed him the way, so he is either grateful or ungrateful.” (Surah al-Insan 76: 2-3)
“Verily, We have made that which is on earth as an adornment for it so that We may test them as to which of them are best in deeds.” (Surah al-Kahf 18:7)
“And it is He Who has made you generations after generations, replacing each other on the earth. And He has raised you in ranks – some above others – that He may test you in that which He has bestowed on you. Surely, your Lord is Swift in retribution, and certainly He is Oft*-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surah al-An’am 6:165)
“A human being is tested so that he may come to know the reality of himself and others. Life is consists of constant testing; testing with what is bad, or testing with what is good. However, what is best for the believer may be found in what he hates, and what is bad for him may be found in what he likes. The true believer is the one who loves that which Allah has chosen for him. So, if He tests him with something that he loves, he thanks Him, and if He tests him with that which he hates, he is patient and thanks Him in this case, as well. And Allah – the Glorified – gives the believer in accordance with what will lead to his happiness in either this World or the next. So, if it is better for him to have something, Allah gives it to him. If it is better for him not to have something, Allah prevents him from having that thing, just as one who is sick is prevented from too much food or water. Therefore, it is upon a person to completely submit to Allah – the Glorified – in regards to what He has chosen for him, and to be pleased with what Allah has given him, and to understand that if Allah prevents him from something, then it is because Allah wishes to save him from being tested with that thing.”

Assalamualaikum, Dear Muslim brother, Allah will not give a Test that we can't handle because every Test Allah gives , HE knows that we can handle it. HE loves us and that's why he gives us with a lot of test to test your Faith and Believe towards HIM.
Well... we would not be here unless satan did not bow to adam when Allah said bow down to him but satan did not... we still would not be here but satan said im not going to hell by myself imma take others with me: and allah said fine and allah made us as huming beings and said worship him not shaytan allah said we need him thats true but allah dont need us he just created us to worship him not to worship shaytan and go to hell so allah dont need us we need him
thank you for replying so soon . your words carry much wisdom and for that i thank you.
though, i have couple of question: first, i want this ilm. god knows how much i need it. but, you see i came here to find it. i don't know where to seek them other than our imam mosque and school teachers. that's why i hoped to find it here!
lastly, what i understand from your answer that god is TESTING us and will reward us with heavens.
my question lays in your anwser. why TEST us?? he knows what you'll do and actaully , he wrote what will you do. and there, he wrote some will go to hell. from what i recall a hadith that states(what i understood from it)'god love son of adam ' . how come he loves us and has 99 mercy and still test us??
please, don't get my qeustions the wrong way. i mearly want to back my faith up
