Why does Allah not tell us what kind of being he is? Why does he leave us in the dark? Can he not define himself?

The God of the bible tells us through the words of Jesus what kind of being he is:

John 4 v 24

King James Bible
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Should we believe in a god who refuses to tell us what kind of being he is? Or perhaps he cannot tell us because he does not exist, except in the minds of his followers.

    At this moment in the world, Allah is known indirectly from the Scripture which is the most closest source possible to know Him.

    As in Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep, God went to seek the lost sheep into the mountains, slopes and cliffs whereas we humans who luckily live in the Goldilock Zone are counted as the saved sheep that should maintain a self-restraint. Certain wolves – such as Pauline ones – want us to think that our shepherd hates us because of the sins of our parents, and leaves us forever.

    Now, by the values of that parable, Islam doesn’t believe in the Calvinist answer of Predestination for a question of “Theodicy”, namely why a bad luck or crime happens.
    In the Calvinist Theology, it is as if God has predetermined that someone has to be raped, and knowingly he refused to help her.

    In the Free Will theology, as a price of His temporary absence, God assures the victims that they are always His saved sheep, no matter what or how. In the Free Will theology, due to His concern of seeking the lost sheep somewhere, it is as if God isn’t quite aware at this moment of what happens in our life, as if He doesn’t foresee how particular crime would befall us, hence consequently He can’t intervene. It is as if God exerts a “middle knowledge”.

    In the Calvinist Theology, God wants the crime to happen, and he doesn’t help us.
    In the Free Will theology, what is needed at this moment for the saved sheep is to remain patient, enduring the test of life, getting unified with other saved sheep against the wolves that want us to be another lost sheep.

  2. “θ says: In the Free Will theology, what is needed at this moment for the saved sheep is to remain patient, enduring the test of life, getting unified with other saved sheep against the wolves that want us to be another lost sheep.”

    Are you saying that God erroneously puts us in a bad world where the Holocaust, rape, torture, Hurricane, and whatever evilness may happen? Despite temporarily, is he choosing to put us in this bad world where we may experience horrible fate?

    “martha_layton says: Are you saying that God erroneously puts us in a bad world where the Holocaust, rape, torture, Hurricane, and whatever evilness may happen? Despite temporarily, is he choosing to put us in this bad world where we may experience horrible fate?”

    What happens in the hell could possibly happen on the earth as well. Evil circumstances such as Natural disasters, torture, rape, killing,et cetera always happen daily in the hell.
    Demons hurt other demons in the hell.

    When God created the hell as a “tormenting abode” for demons, God knows better how it also opens a possibility that the demons may accumulate a devilish desire of have a revenge against God’s people on the earth.

    Now, it depends on such a “random chance” to make a person on the earth meet with his twin demons coming out from the hell. Whenever it happens, a shield or protection of God gets weakened on the earth for such a person, so that he gets vulnerable of the problem of Evil briefly. That would be getting worse if such person doesn’t equip himself with the prayers or good deeds.

    The point is, the demons are wholly responsible for the Evilness. They want so much to hurt the humans, including the believers, on the earth.
    They want to make the earth become a new hell. By borrowing a fiction narrative, the demons want to open a portal to invade the earth.

    When God created the hell as a “tormenting abode” for demons, God knows better how it also opens a possibility that the demons may accumulate a “devilish desire” of having a bloody revenge against God’s people on the earth.

    Normally, a demon could not give a greater impact over any kind of persons. A demon may inflict a more greater evilness upon his “twin humans” on the earth.
    Now, it depends on such a “random chance” to make a person on the earth meet with his twin demons coming out from the hell. Whenever that unlucky event happens, a shield or protection of God gets weakened on the earth for such particular person, so that he gets much vulnerable of the problem of Evil briefly. That would be getting worse if such person doesn’t equip himself with the prayers or good deeds.

    The point is, the demons are wholly responsible for the Evilness. They want so much to hurt the humans, including the believers, on the earth.
    “Problem of Evil” would have not taken place on the earth if the demons had just minded of their own business in the hell.
    They want to make the earth become a new hell. By borrowing a fiction narrative, the demons want to open a portal to invade the earth.
