Mules or camels
« on: June 29, 2017, 02:08:50 PM »
Assalamu allaykum ,

I have a question related to the following passage inshaAllah, it is quran 16:8, And [He created] the horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and [as] adornment. And He creates that which you do not know.

2 questions regarding it

1. It says that allah had created the horses, mules and donkeys. But the mules were not created by allah in that sense were they? Because allah never created the mule rather it was the horse and donkey which had intercourse which brought forth the mule. So how do i explain the above.

2. Why is the camel not mentioned in the verse? It says "for you to ride" and the animals which they used to ride mostly were camels and not horses and donkeys

1- Who is your creator. He created you from the semen and ova of your parents. If he wished, you would have never been existed.

2- Quran is Allah words not yours. He says whatever he wants to say.

He is not questioned about what He does, but they will be questioned.

Since when could the One who controls the whole universe be questioned, and who could question Him when He holds sway over all His servants? Indeed, His will is free, unlimited, beyond restraint, even by the system His will has chosen to govern the universe. Questioning and accountability are subject to certain established criteria and defined limits. Sometimes arrogance takes its hold of people, so that they impudently ask why has God done all this? And, furthermore, what is the wisdom behind it? The way they put these questions suggests that they see no purpose or wisdom in all this. Thus they overstep the limits of proper behaviour towards God Almighty. They also overlook the limits of human understanding dictated by its position in the universe. Needless to say, man remains ignorant of the reasons, causes, effects and objectives that apply to the universe.

It is the One who knows, manages and controls all that operates His will, conducts all matters and controls all things. It is He who “cannot be questioned about whatever He does, whereas they shall be questioned.”

Allah knows best
