Is it stated in the Quran that everything was created for man and that everything was put at his disposal?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Everything was created for man and man was created for Allah. 

"It is He Who hath created for you all things that are on earth; Moreover His design comprehended the heavens, for He gave order and perfection to the seven firmaments; and of all things He hath perfect knowledge." (al-Baqara, 2/29)

Allah created man as the most superior being in the universe.

"And He has subjected to you, as from Him, all that is in the heavens and on earth: Behold, in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect." (al-Jasiya, 45/13)

Since everything except man was created for man, the most beloved creature in the eye of Allah is man. Our Lord created man as the king of the earth since He loved him most.

"Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: ‘I will create a vicegerent on earth.’ They said: ‘Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?’ He said: ‘I know what ye know not.’" (al-Baqara, 2/30)

Allah states in the verse below that He created everything for man and that he created man for Himself:

"Who say, when afflicted with calamity: ‘To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return.’" (al-Baqara, 2/156)
