Hell Fire hellfire

Why Has Allah Created Hellfire?

Have you ever been asked that why has Allah created us, given us the option of obeying Him or not and then created hellfire to punish us? Or, if Allah is so Merciful, so Kind, why has He created the hellfire in the first place? Why does Allah want us to be punished?

These questions are often asked by non believers and unfortunately, sometimes by some Muslims as well. There are two points of view to look at this set of questions; the non believer view or the philosophical view questions Allah’s logic (نعوذ باللہ). It somewhat considers itself smart enough to notice a discrepancy in the seemingly perfect plans of Allah.

The Muslims have a fundamental view on these set of questions. The first three verses of the Quran say:

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful (1) All Praise be to Allah, Lord (Master) of the Worlds, (2) The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (3)

الحمدللہ , which means all praises are for Allah. According to this view, no matter what Allah has created and what its wisdom is, Allah is praise worthy. There can be nothing wrong in His plans.

The next words of the verse are: رب العالمین, which means Allah, is the Master of all these worlds. “Master”, not “Creator”. There is a vast difference between the two and the difference is the reason why someone is a believer while the other is not. “Master” means that Allah has created us and He has full control over us and our lives. He can do whatever he pleases. Masters can be just and kind or they can be cruel and un-just. We are just Allah’s slaves; we cannot question Him or His authority. If we are able to accept that we are simply Allah’s slaves and become submissive to His orders, we would find that He is :

ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ  ٱلرَّحِيمِ

“The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful”

Before Allah tells us that He is our Master, He mentions that He is a Praiseworthy Master! A Merciful and Kind Master. Why would He wish to punish us when He created us with love in the first place? To keep us on the right path; just like parents. When a child does something wrong that is harmful to him in any manner, the parents punish him. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala created us, gave us clear directions about good and bad and the reward for good and punishment for sinners. This is one sign of Allah’s Mercy that He is letting us know in advance that there is something as scary as hellfire if we do not keep ourselves to the right path. Being our Master, He could have chosen not to let us know what the consequences of our deeds, our actions could be.

Allah in the Quran has shown us the two paths, the actions that lead to paradise and the actions that lead to hellfire. So if he chooses to associate partners with Allah (Shirk) and knowingly follows the path of hellfire, should he expect Allah to be merciful to him after deliberately disobeying Allah? Allah says:

And have shown him the two ways? (4)

What are we? Just His slaves! We could have done nothing even then. We should be thankful for the Mercy Allah has shown us by telling us in detail what the hellfire is like and how gruesome our hereafter can get if we do not tread with care in this world.

The thing to come to terms with is that Allah is our Supreme Master and we are nothing but His slaves. Once we come to terms with this fact, our life becomes easier.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
