Islam FAQs - Part 2

Do we believe that Allah created the heavens and earth in 6 days?
Yes, but He did not rest on the seventh day, because He did not get tired. Allah is perfect He does not get tired, nor does He sleep, eat, go to the bathroom, feel pain, or die for that matter.

Can we see Allah?
Allah is not like the sun. Anyone can see the Sun. But Allah is the most beautiful. Nothing is as beautiful as Allah. Actually looking at Allah is the greatest pleasure of the people in Pradise. This pleasure Allah does not give anyone but the believers. So no one will see Allah before he dies.

Does Allah see us?
Allah sees us, and knows everything about us. He knows us better than we know ourselves. There is not a leaf on a tree that blows away, or stays in its place except that He knows it. There is not a dry spot, nor a wet spot, nor a grain in the depths of the earth except that Allah knows it.

Do we have free will?
Yes, of course. Allah does not punish us for something we did not do on our own. But at the same time, our will is not inspire of Allah's will. We cannot do anything if Allah will not allow it. In other words nothing goes on in Allah's kingdom without His will.

Did Allah create Evil?
evil is the result disobedience to Allah's religious laws which is the willful sin of the man and jinn; everybody obeys natural laws whether they will it or not.
Thus Allah created the creatures who do evil, and knew that they would do evil, and he allows it to happen in His creation, and in this sense only He is the creator of evil in the meaning that He creates everything. Allah is all good and everything he does is good, and even this evil that exists has some good in it in that from the presence of evil he brings forth good, and He will judge all with perfect justice and reward those that do good and punish those that do evil and do not repent for that evil.
