We have discussed the fact that Allaah has the full knowledge of everything, the secret, the open, the knowledge of yesterday and of today, and that nothing occurs anywhere at anytime except that Allaah has the fore knowledge of it Glory be to Him. He has full knowledge of what they shall do and of what shall happen to each of them.
The Writing Abu al-Abbass Abdullah bn Abbass al-Haashimiy [RAJ reported that the Messenger of Allaah [peace and blessings be upon him] said, "The first thing AIlaah created is the pen and He commanded it to write. It [the pen] said, What do I write? He said, Write everything that shall exist until the Day of Resurrection. " (Abu Dawood and Tirmidhee).
So, all that shall exist since the Pen was created until the Day of Resurrection is written from the fore knowledge of Allaah The All-Knowing, in the Book known as al-Laoh al-Mahfooz. Allaah says, "He knows that which goes into the earth and that which comes forth from it, and that which descend from the heaven and that which ascends to it. And He is the Most Merciful, the Oft-Forgiving. "[Q 34: 2].
Allaah also says, "Know you not that Allaah knows all that is in the heaven and on earth? Verily, it is (all) in the Book (al-Laoh al-Mahfooz). Verily that is easy for Allaah." [Q22:70]. So, Allaah knows all, commanded the Pen to write all and everything the secret, the open, the events of yesterday and those of today what each and all of His creatures shall do and what shall happen to each and all of them is written in Lawh al-Mahfooz.
