We have a rude awakening. We need to worry about fitting into what Allah(swt) believes, not try to fit Allah into our concepts.
Quite simply, we do not know nor are we capable of comprehending His (swt) thoughts. But, in his mercy he has consistently pounded his desires for us into our limited intellect, by reveal himself to the prophets. We do not know all, but we can grasp the minimum of what we need to understand.
One beauty of Allah(swt) is we are told through his word and through his actions that he is all MERCIFUL, FORGIVING, and JUST. Nobody will be wrongfully punished. We get to face the ultimate court and receive ALL that we have rightly earned, along with countless bonuses we do not deserve.
The Beauty of these promises can be found in Surah 1, Al-Fatiha
1: 1. In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. S P
1: 2. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds; S P C
1: 3. Most Gracious, Most Merciful; S P
1: 4. Master of the Day of Judgment. S P
1: 5. Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek. S P C
1: 6. Show us the straight way, S P C
1: 7. The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray. S P C
Yusuf Ali's Quran Translation
Those 7 little Ayahs tell us that Allah(swt) will give us all we need, he will continue to provide for us and that each of us will be treated with mercy and forgiven for all faults simply by following his path. It also tells us that he will show us the straight path. We also know from those words that our judgement for how well we follow or stray from the path will be judged with pure fairness and each person seperatly and in accordance with our own deeds and misdeeds.
With that said, we do not need to worry about the person who never had or will have the chance to know of Allah(swt), We know he/she will be treated fairly and justly. We need not know what specific rewards or punishments that person will gain or loose.
All of what is mentioned in the opening topic, Allah(swt) created, and he will do whatever his creation was intended for. This is all Allah's(swt) work. We know he will do his job, he is better at it then we are.
