Does Allah Want People to Sin?

Allah endlessly threatens people with an eternity in hell for sinning, so it may seem, on first glance, that Allah is against sin. Appearances, like Allah, can be deceiving, however. According to Muhammad, Allah wants people to sin, because it gives him an opportunity to show mercy. Indeed, Allah is so desperate to show mercy, he threatens all of humanity with annihilation if we refuse to sin!

Thank you! :) For those having a hard time finding it, it's Sahih Muslim, Book 37, Hadith 6621-6622 - USC-MSA web (English) reference (deprecated numbering scheme).
