Are Humans the Last Species of Living Things To Be on Earth?

Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by


Are humans the last species of living things to be on Earth? Will Allah create anything after us?


Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

When we look at the Qur’an and Sunna, we do not see anything that states that Allah will not create any organisms that do not currently exist on Earth. Furthermore, it is perfectly possible that Allah creates all sorts of animate life in Paradise that do not currently exist.

It may well be that Allah does create something else. We do not know.

I pray this helps.
