When Every Child goes to Jannah then why not kill all the children?

Answer: 

Islam believes in Success in this world and in the hereafter.

 

Point #1:

We should follow the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). When we read the life history of the Prophet (peace be upon him), he never did these kinds of activities. A Muslim has to follow and strictly adhere to the teachings of the Prophet (i. e. The Quran and Saheeh Ahaadeeth)

 

Point # 2:

Islam teaches to secure our Jannah first, then blood relations, close relatives and neighbours, city, national and international. If we believe in killing all the innocents so that they achieve Paradise, then our paradise is at loss. The Quran says in Surah Maedah (5):32 “If any one kills any human being, unless be it for a murder or creating mischief in the land, he has killed the entire humanity”. If anyone kills any innocent life then on the Day of Judgment he will get punishment of killing entire mankind. On the contrary, the same ayah (verse) continue saying “If anyone saves a life of one individual, it is as if he has saved the whole humanity” What will be the choice of any sensible person? Killing or saving lives?

 

Point #3:

We don’t know Ilm-e-Gaib (The knowledge of unseen). The person might accept Islam and work for his deen and achieve much higher paradise. The person can create wonders and please God Almighty. If we kill him/her in childhood then we are destroying the law of God.

 

Counter Question:

Why can’t one man sacrifice himself for the benefit of others?

 

Point #1

When it comes to the hereafter and the punishment of God Almighty, no one can sacrifice himself for the benefit of others. The Quran says even a loving mother will throw her baby and thinks of herself.

Point #2

This life is the test for the hereafter. So every individual should secure his place in the paradise first and then bother about others. We should follow the way given by the God Almighty. Whatever is commanded by Almighty Allah should be followed and we should abstain from those things which are prohibited by God Almighty.

 

Point #3

We cannot commit sins or displease God Almighty for the sake of others. Killing is a major sin in Islam.

 

Point #4

Guidance is in the hands of Allah. He will give to those whom he wishes not to those whom we wish.

 

The Solution:

The Quran says in Surah Nahl (16):125 “Invite (all) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching…” Conveying the message to the humanity in the most sensible manner and constantly try and convince the reality of God Almighty. Dawah (inviting, preaching) is the only solution to save mankind from the hell fire. Allah commands in the Glorious Quran in Surah Ghashiyah (88):21-22 “So remind them – you are only one who reminds. You are not a dictator over them.”
