A Christian missionary previously wrote an article attempting to show that Allah is unjust. No worries I refuted it. However, I would like to turn the tables around and show how just Allah really is compared to the God that Christians believe in.
The Quran says…
Never did We destroy a population, but had its warners. By way of reminder; and We never are unjust.
But those who reject (God) – for them will be the Fire of Hell: No term shall be determined for them, so they should die, nor shall its Penalty be lightened for them. Thus do We reward every ungrateful one! Therein will they cry aloud (for assistance): “Our Lord! Bring us out: we shall work righteousness, not the (deeds) we used to do!” – “Did We not give you long enough life so that he that would should receive admonition? and (moreover) the warner came to you. So taste ye (the fruits of your deeds): for the wrong-doers there is no helper.”
The Unbelievers will be led to Hell in crowd: until, when they arrive, there, its gates will be opened. And its keepers will say, “Did not apostles come to you from among yourselves, rehearsing to you the Signs of your Lord, and warning you of the Meeting of This Day of yours?” The answer will be: “True: but the Decree of Punishment has been proved true against the Unbelievers!” (To them) will be said: “Enter ye the gates of Hell, to dwell therein: and evil is (this) Abode of the Arrogant!”
For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the Penalty of Hell: and evil is (such), Destination. When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth, Almost bursting with fury: Every time a Group is cast therein, its Keepers will ask, “Did no Warner come to you?” They will say: “Yes indeed; a Warner did come to us, but we rejected him and said, ‘God never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!'” They will further say: “Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!” They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions of the Blazing Fire!
Clearly from the Quran we see that no one will ever be punished unless that person has received the true message of God and then rejects it. God will not punish someone who lives in some isolated place and has never received the Message. That would truly be unjust.
However, what do Christians believe?
Christians believe that no one can enter heaven unless they are ‘born again’.
In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.
No where else in the Bible do we see God making exceptions to those who have not received the message. As a matter of fact, we see in the Bible that God has condemned people without even sending a messenger to them.
16In the past, he let all nations go their own way.
The commentary of this verse…
suffered all nations to walk in their own ways;
of ignorance, superstition, and idolatry; which they devised, and chose, and delighted in: not that he gave them any licence to walk in these ways, without being chargeable with sin, or with impunity; but he left them to themselves, to the dim light and law of nature, and gave them no written law, nor any external revelation of his mind and will; nor did he send any prophets or ministers of his unto them, to show them the evil of their ways, and turn them from them, and direct them to the true God, and the right way of worshipping him; but left them to take their own methods, and pursue the imagination of their own hearts: but the apostle suggests, that the case was now altered, and God had sent them and other ministers of his, among all nations of the world, to protest against their superstition and idolatry; and to reclaim them from their evil ways, and to direct them to the true and living God, and his worship, and to preach salvation by his Son Jesus Christ.
Allowed them to live as they wished, prescribing and appointing them no type of religion.
So in the past there were people whom God allowed to commit evil deeds and did not even bother warning them. However, this has changed now and now there is no excuse.
However, there never was an excuse in the first place…
20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
This verse is stating that there is no excuse at all for those to reject God because his qualities are clear.
So that means that those people will be held accountable even due to the fact that they have not been warned!
We clearly see the justice of the God of the Quran in that he does not punish anyone who does not deserve it unlike the God of the Bible who would punish those that he did not even bother warning or helping.
