When Allah creates the human being to be His Khalifah on Earth Allah gives to the human being the responsibility to ensure the continued successful completion of His Grand Cosmic Plan. This responsibility as Allah’s Khalifah is no small matter since it ultimately includes all of Allah’s physical creation in its progression toward spiritual perfection, and of course requires the ability to utilize many attributes and powers by Allah’s Khalifah to be successfully carried out. After selecting human beings to fulfill this most glorious role as His Khalifah Allah of course ensures the human being has all the qualities necessary to successfully carry out the responsibilities of this role granted us by His Mercy. Allah provides us with these necessary qualities when He breathes into the new human being, still in their mother’s womb, a God Consciousness. This breathing in of Allah’s Spirit includes the opportunity to use a sufficient number of Allah’s infinite attributes in some small degree of their power which is necessary to allow the human being to act successfully as His Khalifah.Compared to the powers allowed to be utilized by the animals the powers granted human beings by Allah, so we can successfully carry out our role as His Khalifah, are of such great magnitude as to make us virtually super beings in comparison. We are granted the use of sufficient attributes and powers that already allow us to transform our planet, and we are on the verge of being able to transport those magnificent abilities from our planet out into the greater universe.
To be a true human being must include the realization of the full meaning and responsibility that comes with that most homoured role as Allah’s Khalifah. By giving us the use of these attributes and powers Allah has subjugated all of nature to the human race. This subjection does not give us the right to manipulate and exploit nature to our will, but requires us to exercise dominion over nature in such a way that leads nature to continue toward the spiritual fulfillment of the whole of Allah’s physical creation according to His Will. To carry out this role as Allah’s Khalifah successfully is the purpose for which we were created, and is the means by which we can attain Paradise after our brief travail in this material world.
If we human beings do rightly carry out our majestic responsibility to ensure the successful fulfillment of Allah’s Grand Cosmic Plan using the attributes and powers granted us only for that task then all will go well. Individual life will be happy and successful and the society of human beings will be happy and successful, both in this physical realm and later in the spiritual realm. The great worry though, since to be Allah’s Khalifah requires us to be granted a virtually unlimited degree of free-will, is that we may not choose to use the attributes and powers granted us rightly and instead of utilizing our ‘super’ qualities in the service of Allah to carry out His Will we could make the greatest mistake ever possible to make and use those attributes and powers to fulfill whatever sordid and degenerate desires that may arise from out darkest recesses of our character instead of using them solely in the rightful service to Allah.
There could be no more dangerous creature on earth than a Khalifah of Allah who no longer acknowledges his created nature to be the servant of Allah and sees himself owing no allegiance to his Creator, but has allegiance only to himself. Such a creature is in possession of a power for destruction that is truly Satanic in its nature. A human gone so wrong wields, for only some short time until the damage caused becomes irrevocable, a virtually godlike dominion over the earth and all that inhabit our cherished planet because this perverted dominion is devoid of the loving care which Allah displays towards all His creatures and which loving care Allah requires His human Khalifah to also display toward all of His creation. A Khalifah of Allah lacking in the required love and caring toward all of Allah’s creation will surely destroy himself and his kind, thereby forfeiting all possible opportunity to assist in bringing Allah’s Grand Cosmic Plan to the fullest of its spiritual completion.
I say to you my dear Muslim brothers and sisters, if a way can not be found to bring every member of the human race to the point where they are living good and right lives in full accord with the Will of Allah then we will not be able to complete the responsibilities of the role for which we were created. Our spiritual development will come to an end and Paradise will not be the culmination of our material existence. I understand that this will be a difficult realization to accept and an even more difficult task to execute, but for both the worldly and the spiritual future of all human beings there is no acceptable alternative but success.
