Muslims often refer to the following Hadith:
کنت کنزا مخفیا فاردت ان اعرف فخلقت الخلق لاعرف
I was a hidden treasure; I wished to be known. Hence I created the creatures so that I could be known.
However, it is important to note that this Hadith is considered fabricated according to the standards set by Muslims themselves.
Moreover, why did Allah "desire" to be known, especially by a low-level creature like humans, whom Allah Himself created?
Furthermore, when Allah begins to "wish" for something, He no longer maintains the attribute of al-Samad (ٱلصَّمَدُ), which signifies eternal self-sufficiency and independence from all.
Quran 11:2: ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ
"Allah, the Eternally-Self-Sufficient/Independent-of-All (Himself in no need of anything)
Hence, an entity that begins to "wish" for something cannot be an eternal and independent God.
Moreover, the Quran claimed that Allah created mankind for His worship.
Quran 51:56: وَمَا خَلَقْتُ ٱلْجِنَّ وَٱلْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
I have not created the jinns and mankind except to worship Me.
However, when something begins to "wish" or require worship, it ceases to possess the attribute of al-Samad (ٱلصَّمَدُ) and therefore cannot be considered a God. Furthermore, it is illogical that Allah would "wish" to be worshipped by a low-level creature such as humans, whom He Himself created.
- Allah's desire to be worshipped reflects narcissism, as it indicates a self-centered motive for creating humankind.
- This narcissism is further amplified if we are to believe that Allah would condemn individuals to eternal hellfire for not recognizing him as the true creator, regardless of their genuine intentions. There are countless good-hearted individuals born into non-Muslim families who contribute to humanity, yet they fail to perceive Allah as the true God. All their virtuous deeds would be rendered futile, subjecting them to eternal suffering.
- Furthermore, this narcissism is heightened if we are to believe that even if individuals acknowledge Allah as the creator, but do not worship him properly five times a day, they would endure severe and barbaric punishment in the afterlife.
- This narcissism is also evident in the belief that Allah inflicts death upon newborn babies or subjects innocent children to immense pain through severe disabilities, as a means to teach a lesson to other humans to worship him correctly, lest they too experience similar suffering.
- Moreover, this narcissism is reinforced if we accept the Islamic story where angels are compelled to worship Allah without any free will, further emphasizing a self-centered desire for adoration.
Moreover, Muslim preachers claim:
Mankind was created to pass the TEST
However, the question arises: Why did Allah desire for mankind to undergo a test, which required their creation in the first place?
Additionally, while the desire for Allah to be "known" may be considered as a possible reason or logic behind creation, the concepts of "worship" and "test" only pertain to tasks that humans must fulfill after their creation. They do not inherently provide a reason or logic for the initial act of creation itself.
If Allah was Eternal, why did He create the universe only 13.8 years ago?
If Allah is eternal, why did He express the desire to be worshipped only 13.8 billion years ago?
Can we speculate that Allah existed eternally but, for some reason, became exceedingly bored only around 13.8 billion years ago? As a result, He created a game featuring two characters: mankind and Satan, and now Allah takes pleasure in their dramas as a means to alleviate His boredom?
Why does Allah show concern specifically for our Earth in this vast universe, and even more specifically for mankind, who supposedly arrived on Earth only 6000 years ago (according to Islam)? Why would Allah be concerned about our individual homes and bedrooms, monitoring whether we are worshipping Him or not?
In our galaxy, the Milky Way, alone, there exist billions of stars similar to our Earth, and there are billions of galaxies in the universe. So, what then is the purpose behind the creation of this immense universe?
According to authentic Hadiths (traditions), the arrival of the Mahdi is anticipated soon, as Muslims have been dominated by non-Muslims. However, once the Mahdi comes, instead of exploring space and the universe with spaceships, there will supposedly be Doomsday, where the heavens will collapse onto the Earth and the entire universe will be destroyed.
Thus, the question persists: What is the purpose behind the creation of such a vast universe?
Ultimately, these considerations lead one to question whether this god is a creation of human imagination.
Yeah, it's a man-made god.
