" Destiny-Qadar "
Why did not Allah Create All the People Equally?
Why everyone does not have the same living conditions, why Allah did not create them equally? Why did He create some of them blind, deaf and crippled?
Undoubtedly, Allah knows the best one for his servants through his eternal ilm (knowledge) and gives the best one to them.
Each person in the world is tested according to the conditions they are in. For example; while a wealthy person is tested on what and how he spent his money and how much help he did to the poor, on the other hand; the poor one takes the examination on his patience and submission to his destiny (Qadar).
In a Hadith Qudsi declared as:
“Poorness preserves the faiths of some believers. If I make them wealthy, their moral would be corrupted.
Wealth protects the faiths of some believers. If I make them poor, their heart would be corrupted.
Health preserves the faiths of some believers. If I give them illness, their decencies would be corrupted.
Illness protects the faiths of some believers. If I bestow them health, their attitudes would be corrupted.”
The hikmah (wisdom) behind the unequal creation is to increase the rewards in the hereafter. If a person, living poor or disabled in this world, passes his tests successfully, he would be rewarded, in the hereafter, with a position superior to those having higher living standards. For example; a person who has an incurable disease, at the end of his dreary worldly life, he would gain a degree of martyrs which everyone covets.
In a Hadith narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said:
"No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that." (Volume 7, Book 70, Number 545)
“Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.” (Baqarah, 155)
Another hikmah (wisdom) of people’s given different living-conditions is providing the cooperation and solidarity in the society. For example; the wealthy gain the good wishes and the respect of the poor by helping them, giving charities. Thus cooperation and solidarity are provided among people in the society by coming to each other’s aid with lofty feelings such as mercy, respect solidarity.
Another wise reason of people’s having unequal conditions is to cause the wealthy people to thank Allah (swt) more by getting them look at other people’s lives, comparing their own living conditions with other examples near them and making them reflect upon their own lives and take admonition from those who have lower conditions. As understood it drives the people see other examples in their lives and if they have higher living conditions, this makes them be grateful to Allah for providing them with these good conditions, be grateful to Allah (swt) for giving them the strength and intelligence to be able to obtain the conditions they are in.
