Professor of Interpretation and Qur’an Sciences, Dr. Abdul Salam Al-Majidi, received a confusing question during his episode of the Days of God program, broadcast on the Qatari “Al-Jazeera Mubasher” channel.
The text of the question directed to Dr. Abd al-Salam al-Majidi was: “What was God Almighty doing before the creation of our master Adam, and what will he do after humans enter Paradise and Hell”
And the person who asked the question continued that he feels a kind of embarrassment in asking this question.
Satan and his mite
Pointing out that “Satan is whispering to him,” but Dr. Abdul-Salam Al-Majeedi told him that the question is natural and there is nothing wrong with it, but the questioner must comprehend the answer.
Abizaid Majidi in the context of responding to questions the owner of the question, recalling the verse in the verse: “I will create a Khalifa in the earth where they Atjal of mischief therein and shed blood, while we praise praise and sanctify you said I do not know what you know.”
He explained that the question of the angels here was for understanding and not to denounce or object to the command of God, stressing that the question is for the sake of understanding things.
In response to the caller’s question, Sheikh Abdul Salam Al-Majeedi said that we should not measure the attributes of God Almighty with the attributes of human beings.
And that the creation of God is not confined to the creation of Adam, referring to the creation of mountains and the creation of angels and other creatures of God, what we know and what we do not know.
And Sheikh Al-Majidi continued, on the need not to measure unseen matters with the things that we live in our lives.
And he gave an example of the limitations of human perception, compared to small creatures such as the falcon in sharpness of vision and the spider and his sense of movement, so how could he realize the metaphysics of its knowledge with God?
The sheikh narrated the story of the American mathematics professor Geoffrey Lang, who converted to Islam after he was an atheist, and was Christian before it, after meditating Surat Al-Baqarah.
He added that those verses were what caught the attention of “Lang”, and he continued to do so until he received a copy of the translation of the Qur’an and accepted it as a courtesy.
One night, while he was alone, he did not find anything to read, so he grabbed the translation of the Qur’an and that moment transformed his life, and he told about that in his book (The Struggle for Faith).
