Conclusion: Allah created us with free will to test us. Rather than putting us in hell or paradise He is showing us so we will know.
Question: this seems to be a never ending question. Allah leaves the unbelievers to increase their sins. This affects the good helpless people. Then a person does bear the consequences of another. For eg, Israel and Palestine. We cant do anything. It is a calamity placed by Allah and billions have died and suffering. The innocents are being tested because Allah left the Unbelievers to their sins? It makes no sense and I can understand that although everything else in the Quran makes sense, why some people may not accept the existance of a God. There is too much pain for a Merciful God. How can you love a God who you have to fear? Fear of being tested so harshly? Any happiness can be taken away because of a test. Worshipping God coz of fear is easier than love.
Thank u all for ur answers.

Thank u, I have read the ayats and ultimately it seems we dnt know and all we have to do is struggle. Allah doea not need us. He does not need us to fight for Him. There is too much sorrow and torture. And I dnt understand why the helpless suffer so much. This is where I struggle. This is not explained. Why would something be created out of nothing just to show to the creation who is good or not? Allah knows before who will prosper. Why make us to suffer and test?

Salam! I know Allah created us to test us but I get very disheartened that in His Mercy He created us to test us with so much turmoil. He does not need us but He just created us, it seems, for a game. Look at all the suffering....why? We were just created because He decided to make us and test us? It makes no sense

Thank u but I didnt quite understand ur reply! Allah says in the Quran that we were all asked who our Lord is so that we cannot say we didnt know on the Day of Judgement. What is the point of having asked us when we dont remember this incident?

Salam! Thank u all for ur answers. I have so many questions as I am new to understanding the emergence of hadith. Anyway, my question is that in 7:172 Allah says he asked us who our Lord is so we cant say otherwise in Akhirat. My question is what was the point of asking us that when we do not remember this?

Salam people! I was reading in Yusuf Ali's translation and it says Allah allowed satan to "be amongat those who have respite" Does this mean there are others with respite? Ie long respite like Satan or does it mean short respite like humans?

Islamic Duties / Re: Fasting in Norway

Thank u but it seems to me that alot of it left to own devices. I agree Allah comes before family but He also said He does not want to make things difficult.  I have three small children and if I am tired without appropriate nutrition, who will care for them? I feel as Allah said intention is key. Many traditionalists tell me if Allah judges by intention then people would do what they want. I don't understand that. I thought that would put more responsibility on an individual to do right if they don't have orders to obey but actually be aware that Allah is judging all intentions. Am I making sense?

Islamic Duties / Fasting in Norway
« on: June 29, 2014, 04:33:00 AM »
Salam. How would one fast in Norway when there is no sunset. Also, in the UK dawn to night fast is about 20 hours, is it possible for someone to fast this long and still function for the family?

Prophets and Messengers / Was Yahya given scripture?
« on: June 18, 2014, 02:20:35 AM »
I did a search but couldn't find the answer. In Yusuf Ali's translation Yahya was a Prophet 3:39 and Jesus was a Messenger. But Jesus was given scripture. Was Yahya? They were around at the same time, wern't they?

Thank you
