If We had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, “I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together.”
Could evil have been avoided?
Certainly everything is in Allah’s power. If it had been
His Will and Plan, He could have created a world in
which there would have been no choice or will in any of
His creatures. But that was not His Will and Plan.
In the world as we see it, man has a certain amount of
choice and free-will. That being so, He has provided
Signs and means of instruction for man, in order that
man’s will may be straight and pure.
A necessary corollary will be Punishment for the
infraction of His Law. That Punishment must come to
pass, for Allah’s Word is true and must be fulfilled
