I'd think that depends on the end-game really. Do this for me and I'll do this for you - eternal happiness.
To me, that kind of implies that Allah would have needs (which would imply that he was not perfect). If he was omnipotent, he could remove from himself his desire for worship, and create people with eternal happiness in paradise straight from the get-go.

Then perhaps we are in eternal happiness, we are just unaware of it due to being aware of other things, and placing more importance on these other things. But yes there are a lot of inconsistencies in some ideas of god, it just depends on the idea if one chooses to even accept/create one. Not that I'm a muslim or do I know the first thing about Islam through my own ignorance.

Reality/life/god is perfect, our perception of reality/life/god is certainly not. i.e. plenty of people think that God is a man in the sky when the truth is that we just don't know, and so to conclude that god is a man in the sky is to create an imperfection in one's perception of life, and seemingly we conclude that life is not perfect.
