The answer to the first question is that God is purely perfect; and having a purpose and aim for any of His actions is meaningless to him (because normally we fix an aim in our life so we get perfection through our aim but Allah is perfect). Therefore he creates, because creation is necessary for his essence. That, creation is the essence of Him, and the assumption of a non-Creator God, is like the assumption of a triangular square, is a contradictory assumption. Therefore it is a contradictory assumption that Almighty Allah is there but He has no creation.
We humans have the power of imagination and reason; We have hearing and sight, our ears and eyes are instruments; We even seek perfection and awareness; and …; These are our innate perfections, or in other words, our intrinsic attributes; In a way that if these forces are not there will be no creature in the name of man, and the defect and weakness in these forces is a way of being defective and weak in being human. Please note that having eyes and ears is not enough to see. To see and hear requires the power of sight and hearing, which are spiritual powers, which is why man sees and hears in the state of sleep without eyes and ears.
Now, if someone asks us why you see or hear? What answer do we give? We answer: we hear and we see because we are human and we have the power of hearing and sight. In the same way, we imagine, we reason, and we seek consciousness; because we are human beings and these are the nature of human beings. A being who does not have the power of hearing and sight ـ not the eyes and ears and the intellect and the imagination and the pursuit of knowledge and perfection are certainly not human beings;because it lacks early human perfections. Such a creature, if it is alive and looks like a human being, is only a human being overnight. It's like making a monkey look like a human with plastic surgery. Of course, it should be noted that the purpose of these principles is not to make them active.
God Almighty is also comprehensive of all existential perfections; He creates because He is the Creator; It provides sustenance because it is a pleasure; He gives life and well because he is Alive and …. If God did not create, there would be no God; Because if he didn't create, he wouldn't be the creator; And if he were not the creator, he would not have had this attribute of perfection; And if it lacked one of the perfections, He was imperfect, and if He was imperfect, He was not obligatory (compulsory); And a being that is not obligatory is not God. So God creates.
Because creation is his innate perfection. If we do not imagine, then we would not have the power of imagination, if we do not reason, then we would not have reason; If we do not have the authority, we would not be free. However, in the conventional view, these seem to be separate. Because they are single; And the singular adjective and the verb are, in a way, the same – does it mean a building that has not a buider and a painting that has not a painter? God, who is not the Creator, is an illusory being named God. So it doesn't make sense to say if God didn't create us it doesn't make sense to say that God would not have created us if He had wanted too. Not only is God inherently obligatory, His will, knowledge, and authority are also obligatory. The phrase "if he wanted" means "it was possible" and "possibility" as opposed to "necessity". If it is said, "It was possible for God not to create us," it means that there is a possibility in God's will, knowledge, and authority. While in the field of obligatory existence, there is no way. Because of the possibility of attributes, the possibility of essence becomes necessary; and the possibility of existence is not inherently compatible with the necessity of existence.
The result is that God's creation is his essence; and the assumption of a non-creative God is the assumption of a non-God being. Therefore, he does not create to acquire perfection, but because he has perfection in the name of creation, he creates.
From what has been said, it is clear that what God has created is the appearance of the names of His perfections, all of which are the essence of God. Therefore, all beings (creations) are the appearance of the names (Asma) of God and the appearance of the perfections of Him, the emergence of knowledge, will and free will. Therefore, God had no purpose other than creation. Creation because creation is his innate perfection. He created because He is God. If there were no creation, then there would be no God. If it is not disabled, it will certainly not be the perfect cause.
When we say God created, we do not mean that there are creatures within God. The creation of God is not like the work of carpenters and builders and painters and so on. The creation of God is like the creation of the power of our imagination, except that God is obligatory to exist, but the power of imagination is possible to exist. Just as the power of our imagination reveals imaginary forms as soon as we will, so God reveals beings as soon as He wills. Our imaginary forms do not come from non-existence, but their perfections are the imaginary power that emerges; That is, our will, in the form of which imaginary beings appear. Therefore, as soon as we take our will from them, they die in our will. Creatures are also the manifestation of God's perfections and names (Asma) and the manifestation of His will. Imaginary forms are not separate from the power of imagination; Creatures have no meaning apart from God. Imaginary forms are not separate from the power of imagination (mind) and will, but they are not the same as the power of imagination and will or part of them. Creatures are not separate from God, but they are not the same or other than Him.
Question: – As Allah is all-knowing and knew that humans will behave in the torturous ways they do in today's time, why did he create humans in the first place? Were the 14 masoomeens not enough for him, along with all the jins and angels, for his praise?
– Why did he not take away the soul off satan when he opposed Allah? Yes I understand now people would say "it is to give satan a chance" but at that time, if all the jins and angels were loyal to him, who would question it?
– If our destiny is already written by Allah, will duas and hope change anything? If we are not happy with the way our life is, but it's meant to be that way, is there a point of doing anything? And if everything is just an action-reaction, does God have anything with what we do in our lives (good or bad) and we just have to bear the consequences of our own actions?
Answer: God knows the destiny of human beings before creation and we know that many human beings go to hell, if one of them asks God on the Day of Resurrection, why did you create me? While you knew I'm going to hell, what will be God's answer?
1-Divine torment is a reflection of man's voluntary action in not using the means of guidance and not listening to the call of the inner prophet and the outer prophet.
2. God's knowledge of destiny and how beings interact and behave does not force them to err, and in fact God's knowledge reveals the actions of His servants.
3. The creation of the people of cruelty and their creation is a necessity, the devil must exist, in order to enable the growth and development of human beings in this context.
4. Although the creation of the demons of jinn and humans is a necessity, who plays this role is by choice and will, and there is no compulsion from God.
The problem with the "riddle of the creation of the people of cruelty and their torment" goes back to the famous argument of “compulsion and authority". It says, "Why did God, who knew the destiny of the creatures from the beginning, create them?" This creation is obligatory and is completely out of human control. On the other hand, even if that creature does not rebel, it will lead to the creation of a contradiction and contradiction in God's knowledge that the being is rebellious, so that being must always be in rebellion and cannot behave differently. This is another force therefore, in the form of a few points, we will deal with the connection between "God's knowledge" and "servants' compulsion or authority":
1- God's knowledge of destiny and how beings interact and behave does not force them to sin. For example, if you use a situation such as a building or a high place, you see your friend driving and you see that with this driving style, he will surely fall and you will have complete knowledge and awareness of the unpleasant consequences of his unruly behavior and rationality. And after a few minutes he gets to the natural effect of his work, are you to blame? Did you cause it to fall into the valley? Has your knowledge of the fate of his incorrect choice of driving style forced him to fall? Do governments and road engineers and car manufacturers who know for sure that many accidents are due to horseback riding, car racing, and improper use of cars and roads, are the cause of the compulsion of road accidents? God never recorded anyone's destiny in sin and transgression. This hadith has been narrated by many Islamic scholars from the Holy Prophet (PBUH): It is self-restraint to know that they have a wrong idea and that a large number of prophets are dissatisfied with them and curse them.
3- It is better to say that God knows who has used the means of guidance and who is turning their backs on it, and that torment is a reflection of the people's voluntary action in not using the means of guidance. It's like a teacher who, on the day of the start of the lesson, tells the factors of academic success and knows who is listening and who is up in the air. Naturally, he has good grades and awards for his family, and a negative grade and its troubles because he demanded the same thing with his actions.
4-So the teacher's knowledge reveals and discovers the actions of children, not their compulsion to be lazy. Therefore, theologians have said: God knows the obedience and sin of the servants, and this knowledge is the discoverer and the subject of the actions of the servants. All these protests are justified when God does not send any means to guide and at the same time expect obedience, but when the inner prophet (common sense and instinct) and the outer Prophet (Prophets and Imams) and the book (Heavenly Books) and the divine scholars (Awliya Allah and Olema’s) Prepared for this purpose, who is to blame? The one who "has hundreds of lights and goes astray"? Or punishing the offender for breaking the light? Living in today's world Life in school is the will and everyone's happiness and cruelty are in his hands. And he is the one who must move and ask God for guidance and more success.
5- God created man and made him want to evolve. For evolution, the role of the devil must be considered in order to allow growth in this context. The existence of the devil is not harmful to people of faith and those who want to follow the path of truth, but is a means of progress and development; because progress and development always take place in the midst of contradictions.
6-Although the role of the demons of Jinn and Human have a necessary role and should exist, but who will play this role is by choice and will, and there is no compulsion from God. God did not even create the devil, the devil. Because he was a companion of angels and worshipers for many years (6,000 years) but later, by his own will and due to arrogance, he took the path of rebellion and deviation and turned away from God's mercy. This is exactly what Yazid did; In other words, Yazid has accepted this role by his choice. So Yazid cannot say why God created me; Because God says creating your role was a necessity, and if he says why should I play that role? God will answer that you chose this role of your own free will and you could not be Yazid and you will be reprimanded for this.
In other words, there must be bad human beings in this system so that other human beings can fully interact with them. For example, it must be Yazidi, so that Imam Hussein (AS) and what he did will make sense, and it is in this context that Imam Hussein (AS) must reach the position of martyrdom and achieve the highest position. But God did not force anyone that he must be an example of Yazid, but that it is man himself who puts himself in that position by his own free will; therefore, he cannot hold God accountable for why I should play the role of Yazid; because there is no need at all, and he could not be like that.
7-The principle of human creation is the grace bestowed on him by God. It's like someone spreading a tablecloth and inviting people to come and enjoy the food on the table. Now, if in the meantime no one eats this food voluntarily and there are irreparable effects due to hunger, then there is nothing wrong with the host and he cannot be asked why he invited him, what if he did not invite him and His knowledge (that a certain guest did not eat) was enough to be reprimanded by the same guest for not inviting me, and if you invited me, I would eat that food.
What you asked about why God has not created us as Ahlul bait so in this concern I just mention this Quranic verse:لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ
Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability. For it is (the benefit of) what it has earned and upon it (the evil of) what it has wrought. (2: 286)
We should not be worried if Allah has not created the Prophet because we can’t even imagine what responsibility they had and how Allah examined them and how Allah will reckon them according to their duty and responsibility in this world. Therefore what being and existence Allah has given us we will be questioned accordingly on the Day of Judgement.
