The Details of the Question

- What is the relationship of Islam with dystopias like according to Orwell, Huxley and others?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Dystopian narratives appear as negative versions of the understanding of ideal society.

The Quran sometimes uses similes to facilitate the understanding of transcendent divine truths. However, it does not use fictional narratives related to the evaluations of people’s lives. It builds a plain reality phenomenon.

As such, the examples of negative societies described in dystopias evoke polytheist-based oppressive societies such as Ad and Thamud, which are categorized in the Quran.
