Question: Does Allah know our pain and everything else?
Dear Brother in Islam,
The Divine Transcends All Likeness
Allah, the Most High, says :
“the Creator of the heavens and earth.’ He made mates for you from among yourselves––and for the animals too––so that you may multiply. There is nothing like Him: He is the All Hearing, the All Seeing.” [Quran 42:11]
Allah is exalted above all deficiency and absolute in His Perfection. The human being, however, and all created things are limited and dependent by nature. It does not befit Allah, Most High, to be referred to or described in any way that resembles the creation; neither in His Essence (dhaat), nor His Attributes, nor His Actions. (Kharidah Bahiyyah, line 24).
Allah is Well-Aware of His Creatures
Allah, the Most High, says : “How could He who created not know His own creation, when He is the Most Subtle, the All Aware?” [Quran 67:14]
And also: “People, be mindful of your Lord, who created you from a single soul, and from it created its mate, and from the pair of them spread countless men and women far and wide; be mindful of God, in whose name you make requests of one another. Beware of severing the ties of kinship: b God is always watching over you.” [Quran 4:1]
Allah is our Creator and He knows us better than we even know ourselves. The believer should be conscious of Allah’s watchfulness of Him at all times and this entails purging one’s inner and outer states of all that displeases Him and beautifying them with all that He loves.
The Foundation of the Religion
The Islamic creed is the basis of the religion. It is based on the decisive proofs of the Quran and Sunnah and has been explained by the scholars. It is obligatory upon every Muslim to know this creed.
