Reply by Allah to Angels
Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
30c. He said: Surely I know that which ye know not.
30c. Qaala ’Inniii ‘a’-lamu maa laa ta’-lamuun”.
When Allah Almighty proclaimed before His Bright Beings (Angels) (peace be upon them): I wish to appoint My vicegerent in the earth. The Angels (peace be upon them) established a conception thoughtfully about the Caliph and considered that; which are being created from such different things (clay, water, fire and air), when they will come in the world, essentially they will spread disturbance, unrest and quarrel with one another. They will shed blood of their brothers and rob. It was one side of the life of mankind, which was presented by the Angels (peace be upon them). That is to say; such side which was dark; and in which, only evil was seen.
Before the Angels (peace be upon them), it was a side of that person; who was going to become Caliph. But which qualities were hidden into the human being, they did not know about them, for example; new ideas and inventions, development in different fields of life as his reach from the depth of oceans to the heights of the skies, development in different departments of the science i.e. physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, computers, aeroplanes, vehicles, construction technology, petrochemical, ships, his journey towards different planets, electromechanical, agricultural, industrial field, his control over the clouds and rains, his control over the birth, vegetation etc. Therefore, they produced one side of the picture according to their guess, and along with it they presented that side, in accord with which, they were going on. In it, corroboration and obedience in every matter and command of Allah Almighty was included. The Angels furnished this request; not as an objection but respectfully.
Both sides of the life of His Caliph did exist before Allah Almighty. That is to say; He was Aware of His caliph’s present position as well as about the forthcoming changes into him with the passage of time. He was acquainted that His Caliph will bring changes in the entire world with his knowledge and wisdom.
So, God Almighty answered on the request of the Angels (Peace be upon them), “I know and you do not know”. It aims that you don’t know about how much advisability and philosophy are hidden in creation of My Viceroy.
