Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into Ayat number 30 of the esteemed Surah Al Baqarah that emphasizes the decision of Allah to send down a Khalifa on the earth. Khalifa in this Ayat refers to Prophet Adam AS, and our Prophet ﷺ because he was the Khalifah of Allah SWT appointed by Him to implement His laws. 

When Allah SWT informed them that He was going to create a creation on the earth, the angels raised a question about this with Allah SWT only for the sake of learning and they wanted to know the wisdom behind such a decision. If the wisdom behind this action was the worship, praise, and glorification of Allah, then that was already being done by the angels.

He (Allah) said: “I know that which you do not know” which implies that only Allah SWT knew the benefit of creating this type of creature. He would create Prophets and send Messengers, people who are truthful, martyrs, righteous believers, worshippers, the modest, the pious, the scholars who implement their knowledge, humble people and many more types who love Allah SWT and follow His Messengers AS.
