It has unanimously accepted by various scriptures and even science that the universe has created long before the creation of man. He administrates and conducts it through numerous malaeks, known as faresta in Farsi and angel in English, and also similar to the god and goddess worshipped by the Indians, Romans and Greeks as well. Allah has conducted the whole universe disciplined with these numerous angels who are actually natural power without free will. The angles do their job ordained by Allah for them properly without deviating a little bit. Actually any deviation is impossible as these natural powers have no free will power. The gravity is an angel for an instance. The lord creator Allah has ordained it to retain throughout attracting everything. He continues its duty since the creation of the universe and will persist till end. He has not allowed taking rest even for a fraction while. Different religion (better to say code of life) considers different natural powers as their god and goddess. As Barun is the god of air, Surjadev (Sun) is a god in Hindu, Neptune is the god of ocean in Greek, Vulcan is the god of fire in Roman, similarly in Islam there have specific angels for fire, air, water, power etc. like the gravity. Another resemblance is, all religion (code of life) considers them as uncountable in number. It is usual, because the number of natural creation is numerous as well.
In different Indian religion the numbers of the angel are assume to be 330 millions. The Christians also considers such a huge extent of numbers. Priest scholar of 13th
century, Albertus Magnus has expressed calculating that the correct number of the angels are 39 crore, 99 lack, 20 thousand, and four (how he calculate it, Allah knows), approximately 7 crore higher than that of Hindus. In the religion sinto of Japan consider their number as 80 lacks. In meraj (the visiting event of the messenger of Allah, Mohammad sm. with Allah.) the messenger of Allah had seen thousands of angels enters gradually in the mosque baitul mamur to prays (salah) to Allah. To describe their number, the messenger of Allah has said, one who has prayed there one time will never find further chance to pray there i.e. they are numerous in number. (Hadis- sabet al butany from Anas (ra.), moslem, meskat)
. For the time immemorial the creator Allah has been administrating and conducting His vast creation through his countless malaeks (angels). Once He wished to create man. Why he wished so, I don’t know. Also I don’t know whether anybody knows the answer. He has hinted a little bit Himself in the holy Qur’an. He has said- “I haven’t created it for passing time”. (Sura, al-mulk: 02
). It is obvious. Since time is His creation, then no question arose to pass time for him. Again Allah has said, he would like to test us whether we serve the good deed. (Sura, al-mulk: 02)
In a word, Only He knows why He has created man, the best and worst creation of all.
(Sura, at-teen: 4-5).
There have no way to deny that he had created. Describing the period of creating man, He has said in holy Qur’an that, ‘when He wished to create man, He calls all of the angels saying them I am going to create my representative on the face of the earth. They reply, what need to create Your agent? They will create fasad, unrest and safakuddima on earth. (Sura, al-bakarah: 30).
The secret of creating man is dormant in the speech of the angels. Therefore, let’s take a pause to understand the matter very well.
According to Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, one son of Adam (as.) killed by the other. It was the opening of bloodshed on earth which is ongoing till today. These two i.e. unrest and bloodshed is the grand problem of the mankind till creation. The specific words used by the angels are “fasad” which means injustice, unrest, turmoil, anarchy etc. and another word is “safakuddima” that means bloodshed. The summarized meaning of which is, man will be in unrest and bloodshed to be Allah’s representative. Amazing fact is their forecast has absolutely come true. Begging from the murder of the son of Adam (as.), these unrest, turmoil, anarchy, injustice, iniquity as well as bloodshed never stops for a while and also these are the biggest crisis of mankind since then. All the efforts of human being in this sector have lost into vain. This is not the last; these are the specific problems of the mankind that shove its existence on earth under question.
Here the matter to be focused that, the maleyeks (angels) did not argue against the creation of man that, they will not go to temple, mosque, church, pagoda, synagogue for pray to You and do not keep fasting as well rather said creates unrest, iniquity, dispute, and bloodshed on earth. It clearly means that the major problem is the second one. Does Allah not understand the malayeks? Of course, He is, nevertheless He created man disregarding the objection of malayeks. In the holy Qur’an the creator Himself has informed us some basic and fundamental facts on the creation of man. One of them is about the degree of gravity, prestige and affection to this new creation. Allah has created the whole universe including the angles with just single word Kun, be. (Just said and happened)(Sura, al-bakarah: 119, An-nahal:40, Yasin:82)
