Question text In the event of creating Adam (a.s), why did the angles say that mankind would bring about corruption and bloodshed in the earth; is this not open objection (of God's decision)?
categorization: Angels
At the time God said, "Verily I (intend to) appoint a vicegerent in the earth," the angles conceptualized earthly beings that possess physical desires and live in a world of rivalry and constant change. It is not possible to live without socialization and order; hence these things (the absence of socialization and order) are the causes of corruption and bloodshed. Thus, the angles statement in the presents of the Divine (God) was an attempt to understand the wisdom behind the creation of mankind in such a world.
