Assalam u Alaikum!
- It's said that Allah created human beings for us to worship Him. Correct? Why would Allah want us to worship Him? I dont mean that as a disrespect of course but he is the most powerful thing, well nothing really compares to him if you really belive in Him isnt it? So why would he want to be worshipped? One reason, in my opinion, could be that if you worship Him you lead a good and pious life. But I am a little curious as to is there a reason specified why Allah would like his children to worship him?
- This is a silly question probably but it springs from my inquistive nature. Who created Allah? It seems, from what you suggested,that Allah doesnt have a beginning or and end. He neither begets nor is he born. So has this world been created many times over? Or is this the only time the world was created? And if it was indeed the only time is there a mention of what Allah did before it? Like I said it kind of sounds silly but if you think abt it it is more abt the Lord himself..Perhaps no easy answer on this one.
These 2 questions were asked by an athiest and I would be grateful if you could help answering them.
