Qur'an Contradiction:

Everything and Everyone is Obedient to God?

To Him belongs every being
that is in the heavens and on earth:
all are devoutly obedient to Him.
-- Sura 30:26

This is just not true. The Qur'an itself talks hundreds of times about the disobedient, the transgressors and the evil-doers, both among men and among jinn.

Do you honestly think anything happens that God does not will? If so, what? As long as everything is under the domain of God's will, then it can ONLY be obedient to Him.

Obviously, if the "disobedience" of an "evil" person is according to the will of God, then the person is actually obedient (i.e. does what God wants that he does). I.e. according to this answer, no such thing as disobedience exists. Why then does the Qur'an constantly threaten punishment to the disobedient if they are only do what God wants them to do?

And the claim of the above verse is not only that they are all factually obedient, some voluntarily, some grudgingly, but it claims that all are devoutly obedient, i.e. voluntary and eagerly.
