Peace my dear brother,
This a question that is anticipated by the Quran and it is responded to in multifaceted ways. For the sake of brevity, I will cite just a couple of examples.

The Quran asks one to ponder on God's perfection by assessment of the harmony that exists throughout His Creation and the Universe. Here is one verse:
'Who has created the seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Can you  see any rifts (flaw / disorder)?  Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return to you weakened and made dim'
From each nucleotide in a DNA strand, each nucleus, each cell, each organ, each creature, to the multitude of creatures throughout this planet and His creation throughout the Universe. Each atom within each entity on our planet, throughout the numerous celestial bodies within our solar system, to the many possible solar systems amongst our galaxy and the billions of galaxies throughout the Universe, God has created a mechanism of harmony, a system of utter perfection. It is not some random process which has been conjured out of nothing. It has a purpose and a destined end.

Such immense knowledge required to underpin the working of such a Universe must be perfect.
'With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knows but He. He knows whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf does fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a record clear' 

In tems of our Creation, and with regards the state of our souls, His knowledge still remains absolutely perfect. For Him the raising of a whole humanity will be like the raising of a single soul. He will make no mistakes.
'Your creation and your raising (from the dead) are only as (the creation and the raising of) a single soul. Lo! God is Hearer, Knower'
You may have seen this video. If not, please sit back, and take a look. I wont say much, but after the few minutes you'll see, there isn't much one can add to it.

Your brother,
