Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalamu wa alaikum Wr Wb
Brother and sister of deen
I had heard and read some say that ALLAH would have not created this world if he had not created Our Loving and last Prophet MOHAMMAD sallala wa alaihi wa sal lam.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Allah not created if no prophet (saws)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 67 Surah Al Mulk verse 2:
He (Allah) created death and life that He may test you, to see which of you is the best in deeds.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 45 Surah Jathiyah verse 22:
22 Allah created the heavens and the earth for just ends and in order that each soul may find the recompense of what it has earned and none of them be wronged.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 44 Surah Dukkhan verses 38-40:
38 We created not the heavens the earth and all between them merely in (idle) sport:
39 We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.
40 Verily the Day of Sorting Out is the time appointed for all of them
Allah Says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 15 Surah Hijr verse 85:
85 We created not the heavens the earth and all between them but for just ends.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 30 Surah Rome verse 8:
8 Do they not reflect in their own minds? Not but for just ends and for a term appointed did Allah create the heavens and the earth and all between them: yet are there truly many among men who deny the Meeting with their Lord (at the Resurrection)!
Your Question: I had heard and read some say that ALLAH would have not created this world if he had not created Our Loving and last Prophet MOHAMMAD
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, in light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Glorious Quran, the Lord Declares the precise reason and wisdom behind His creation: ie. to involve mankind to a test, so that every soul may taste the recompense of his deeds done in their appointed time of one life.
To say or believe that the Lord creates or destroys His creation for the purpose of any one individual would not be accurate! Allah Subhanah created everything in existence to involve man (and jinn) to a test; and the teachers or Prophets the Lord appoints are an absolutely integral part and parcel of the test.and without the appointment of the Prophets of Allah to convey the Lord Message to mankind, the test would not be valid!
Thus in that sense one may deduce that were it not for the teachers and Messengers appointed by Allah, man would not have received the Message of their Lord; and if man would not have received the Message of their Lord, their test would have been invalid.and without the test, there would have been no creation! But that would apply to every Prophet of the Lord Most High, Adam, and Nuh, and Ibraheem, and Musa, and Isa, and Mohamed (saws), etc; not the Last Messenger (saws) alone!
As much as we may love, respect, revere, and honor our beloved Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), we as believers in Allah and the Last Day, must be careful not to go to excesses in our love and assign or give someone a rank or position from ourselves which does not rightfully belong to him.
The people who received the Scriptures before us went to excesses in their reverence of the Prophets who came to them, and in their excessive reverence raised them to a pedestal that did not rightfully belong to them, so much so that in time they blasphemed and declared one amongst them to be the begotten son of Allah Subhanah Himself!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 171:
171 O people of the Book (Jews and Christians)! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah aught but the Truth. Christ Jesus, the son of Mary was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah and His Word which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One Allah: Glory be to him: (a Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
