Allah Will Never Do Wrong to His Servants
Human race is actually vulnerable and needs protection. In the beginning of human life on earth, compared with all other animals, human is one of the weakest creature. Human body is not as big and is not as strong as bear, nails is not as strong as tiger and when he runs it is not as fast as horse. So, before weapon, culture and technology were invented, human is really one of the weakest ceature in vulnerable from distinction.
Fortunately, Allah giving human mind and intellegence, so with those mind and intellegence human can survive and even become superior amongst other creatures. Human now become the conqueror on earth, Khalifah fil Ardh.
However, becoming the conqueror, self-destruction is potentially happened during the long history of human civilization. As example was the history of Sodom people, who were prefer to engage with the same sex. If this kind of influence left freely spreaded to every where, then at the end their number will increase and most of the people were influenced by Sodom behavior. This will give impact on decreasing of birthrate, and some time in the future human will distinct from earth. So then, in order to prevent this influence from spreading, Allah swt extingushed Sodom people by persecuting them with rock rain.
And apparently, from the long history of human being, the ultimate thread was coming from disbelieving, refusing to believe in God, refusing to have faith in Allah swt. Because, without believing in God, the upcoming human civilization will be formed by satan. The civilization which will plunge human into distinction. So, if this disbelieving left freely to spread, then human civilization will come into darkness and horrifying.
Without directions and guidance from God, man will hate each other. Hostility, betrayals, repressions and wars will arise every where. And at the end, man will kill each other and bloodshed, so then human can perish from the earth.
Hence, the intial refusing to believe in God shall be suppressed and blocked from spreading. So then human civilization will be able to prevail on earth. Those are the reasons why Allah swt gave punishment to the people of Aad, people of Tsamud and also the pharaoh. The punishment itself didn’t mean to be unjustified to human race, but it was intended to preserve and protect upcoming human civilizations.
مِثْلَ دَأْبِ قَوْمِ نُوحٍ وَعَادٍ وَثَمُودَ وَالَّذِينَ مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ ۚ وَمَا اللَّهُ يُرِيدُ ظُلْمًا لِلْعِبَادِ
“Like the custom of the people of Noah and of 'Aad and Thamud and those after them. And Allah wants no injustice for [His] servants.” (QS 40:31)
So as to pharaoh, the punishment of Allah swt to the pharaoh was didn’t mean to unjustified His servant, but to stop influence of disbelieving from spreading to the next generation of human being. With this, then the next human civilization will improve and prosperous. Not distinct and perish from earth.
Then in the matter of believing, the way Allah teaches human for believing is so human’s way. There are none of verses in the al-Quran which wrongly teaches human. All of the verses were composed and revealed in a way that human mind will be able to accept this easily. So, under the condition of human mind in freedom, not being confined, and men having willingness to use their mind, the teachings of al-Quran will be very easy to be understood. Not only very easy but the teachings itself is so perfect.
هَٰذَا بَلَاغٌ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيُنْذَرُوا بِهِ وَلِيَعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا هُوَ إِلَٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ وَلِيَذَّكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
“This [Qur'an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded.” (QS 14:52)
Inside of the holy al-Quran, men are explained how to know Allah the Unseen by recognizing His signs of Existence over the universe and over the body of themselves. Then, by recognizing and contemplating those signs of Allah, then human mind will be easily understanding and believing in Allah.
So, in this case, human were not pushed to accept and to believe Allah the Unseen, but with contemplating on the signs of Allah then human mind will be easily understand the teaching to believe in Allah swt. So, once again we can conclude that Allah was never doing wrong toward His servants. (AK/SY)
