As earlier mentioned, it is God’s plan to eventually prove to Iblis and his cronies that His Decision to appoint mankind to be His Vicegerent and to who they are to bow respectfully is a Wise Decision. Pursuant to this, mankind (as Vicegerent of God) would eventually subjugate Iblis and his cronies, govern them and bring them back to worship God once again.

It is the governing which is the most intriguing because there more than three hundred planet-like earths out there in the outer space the homes of the evil ones (Iblis and his cronies). Some of these planet-like earths are more than 8 times bigger than our Earth. So how do we govern them? Even our Earth we need so many Head of State. In addition to the quantity, we will also need quality. Many of these earth-like planets may have, together with their inhabitants, natural elements which are very unforgiving. We require very skillful and tested Vicegerents to govern these earth-likes planets including their inhabitants

What! Are ye the more difficult to create or the heaven (above)? (Allah) hath constructed it. [32]

So how does God get His Vicegerent not only in quantity but also in quality? This is done by Him testing Mankind from generation to generation for a long period of time until the final product – skillful and well-tested Vicegerents, in quantity and quality.

We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false. [33]

Say: “He hath power to send calamities on you, from above and below, or to cover you with confusion in party strife, giving you a taste of mutual vengeance? each from the other.” See how We explain the Signs by various (symbols) that they may understand.[34]

Distress and affliction befell them and they were shaken violently, so that the Apostle and those who believed with him said: When will the help of Allah come? Now surely the help of Allah is nigh![35]

And We have broken them up into various separate groups on the earth, some of them are righteous and some are away from that. And We tried them with good  and evil in order that they might turn (to Allâh’s Obedience).[36]

And remember, We delivered you from the people of Pharaoh: they set you hard tasks and punishments slaughtered your sons and let your womenfolk live; therein was a tremendous trial from your Lord.[37]

If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute.[38]

Then We made you heirs in the land after them, to see how ye would behave![39]

Everyone will be tested as a mean to achieve the end (to produce qualitative Vicegerents) and there is no exception. Just like sunlight, everyone is touched by it. However, the test for Prophets of God was more severe than any ordinary person.

Abu Said Al Khudriy asked,”Oh, Messenger of God, who among the people who are greatly tested?” Messenger of God replied, “Prophets of God.”[40]

1.              Prophet Adam

Then did Satan make them slip from the (Garden), and get them out of the state (of felicity) in which they had been. And We said: “Get ye down, all (ye people), with enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling place and your means of livelihood – for a time.” [41]

2.              Prophet Ibrahim

They said, “Burn him and protect your gods, If ye do (anything at all)!” We said, “O Fire! be thou cool, and (a means of) safety for Abraham!” Then they planned against him: but We made them the ones that lost most! [42]

3.              Prophet Job

Then they planned against him: but We made them the ones that lost most! So We listened to him: We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his people to him, and doubled their number,- as a Grace from Ourselves, and a thing for commemoration, for all who serve Us. [43]

4.              Prophet Zunnun

And remember Zunnun, when he departed in wrath: He imagined that We had no power over him! But he cried through the depths of darkness, “There is no god but Thou: glory to Thee: I was indeed wrong!” So We listened to him: and delivered him from distress: and thus do We deliver those who have faith. [44]

5.              Prophet Jacob

And he turned away from them, and said: “How great is my grief for Joseph!” And his eyes became white with sorrow, and he was suppressed with silent sorrow. [45]

Then when the bearer of the good news came, He cast (the shirt) over his face, and he forthwith regained clear sight. He said: “Did I not say to you, ‘I know from Allah that which ye know not?'” [46]

6.              Prophet Joseph

And (with passion) did she desire him, and he would have desired her, but that he saw the evidence of his Lord: thus (did We order) that We might turn away from him (all) evil and indecent deeds: for he was one of Our servants, chosen. [47]

7.              Prophet Moses

“Go, both of you, to Pharaoh, for he has indeed transgressed all bounds; “But speak to him mildly; perchance he may take warning or fear (Allah).” “But speak to him mildly; perchance he may take warning or fear (Allah).” He said: “Fear not: for I am with you: I hear and see (everything). [48]

8.              Prophet Isa

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.”;- But they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.[49]

9.              Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Allah had helped you at Badr, when ye were a contemptible little force[50]

Hence it is vital that one should not be beguiled by Satan into doing that which God forbids as this will inevitably affect the chance of our descendants from being God’s Vicegerents as such doings are but sins which will invariably affect our spiritual strength and corrupt our moral platform.

And whoever commits a sin, he only commits it against his own soul. [51]

Do not associate any other god with Allah lest you should be thrown into hell, blamed, cast away. [52]

Whoever of you turns back from his religion, then he dies while an unbeliever– these it is whose works shall go for nothing in this world and the hereafter. [53]

O you who believe! Intoxicants and games of chance and (sacrificing to) stones set up and (dividing by) arrows are only an uncleanness, the Satan’s work; shun it therefore that you may be successful. [54]

And go not nigh to fornication; surely it is an indecency and an evil way. [55]

And do not kill any one whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause. [56]

And draw not near to the property of the orphan except in a goodly way till he attains his maturity and fulfill the promise; surely (every) promise shall be questioned about. [57]

And give full measure when you measure out, and weigh with a true balance; this is fair and better in the end. [58]

And follow not that of which you have not the knowledge; surely the hearing and the sight and the heart, all of these, shall be questioned about that. [59]

And do not go about in the land exultingly, for you cannot cut through the earth nor reach the mountains in height. [60]

Let not your soul waste away in grief. [61]

Persecution is severer than slaughter. [62]

Those who have transgressed the limits which God has promulgated should not be languished in anguish as God is Most Merciful so repent and seeks His Forgiveness and not repeating the same mistake and you will find God Most Forgiving.

And whoever does evil or acts unjustly to his soul, then ask forgiveness of Allah, he shall find Allah Forgiving, Merciful. [63]

But whoever repents after his iniquity and reforms (himself), then surely Allah will turn to him (mercifully); surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [64]

Say: O my servants! who have acted extravagantly against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah; surely Allah forgives the faults altogether; surely He is the Forgiving the Merciful. [65]
