INJUSTICE,SUFFERING AND OPPRESSION.
I am talking to those who believe in GOD in this post. and everybody interested in reflecting.
Are we expecting this life to be perfect? Yet GOD is perfection, so why this contrast?
GOD created the weather elements for us ,the sun ,fire…etc Can we say,when these things harm/kill GOD created “evil”? So why does extreme heat,cold ,fire,extreme weather harm/kill people?
Suffering ,oppression,injustice occur all over the earth in all ages why?
Let us go back to the origin of this life,why did GOD set us up to be humans on earth? Why not be Angels or animals or…any other creation?
GOD created all this universe for us and restricted us to live on this tiny insignificant place-earth- compared to other bigger planets why?
GOD made earth habitable for us and made reproductivity so that its inhabitants will have a turn living in it why?
GOD sent us scriptures with prophets and made sure each generation had the message,why?
What is apparent is we had no choice in where we live or what was created in it. We are here and we are trying to make sense of why and how.
Qoran does not explain existence of suffering/evil. That part of the knowledge is with GOD and we have only been given some of the knowledge
The message of Qoran is a way of life; a code of conduct for successful living in the trials and tests of this life. it is not an all encompassing theory of everything
But since we are asking about it, We want a peaceful life and a peaceful people in it. Anything that is not peaceful in its nature is contrary to the message of Qoran. In order to attain this state , we face trials and tribulations. It is not only believers or disbelievers who do this but all other religions like Christians, Jewish believers, Hindus and above all Buddhists in their quest for the Nirvan, face tests and their success in attaining the peace depends upon their performance in those tests
A peaceful state , by design, requires a system of accountability and correction. In order to attain the perfect peace, several stages have to be passed successfully. Suffering through those stages is actually a journey and not an end in and of itself
A peaceful state of a person requires submission to GOD Alone and this is the hardest test to pass. This involves tests and tasks which are inexplicable and illogical according to human reasoning and standards. These tests may come in form of sudden catastrophes, painful affliction of innocent people and irrational loss of life and wealth. These tests qualify as truest form of human suffering and require the highest form of surrender to the almighty.
While one reflects/study/ponder Qoran to find answers to these difficult questions,what is certain is that GOD is in control,GOD does everything for good reasons and GOD is the only just judge for everyone. Complete and perfect justice for what each one deserves.
Why do we expect the life and death of everyone on earth to be the same when GOD expects one of two ways .Disasters /suffering…happens to all but it is due to choices and decisions of the “evil ones”.
Believers should accept that this is part of life and accept whatever happens to them,knowing that all good is from GOD and all bad is from the decisions and choices of either us or others that can affect us.
A verse that gives us the strength to accept whatever comes our way,good or bad and to know that as long as there are “evil people” there will carry on being disasters and suffering. Only when all are peaceful and submitting to our Creator will there be total peace and perfection:
Even if a Quran caused mountains to move, or the earth to tear asunder, or the dead to speak (they will not believe). God controls all things. Is it not time for the believers to give up and realize that if God willed, He could have guided all the people? The wicked/ disbelievers will continue to suffer disasters, as a consequence of their own works, or have disasters strike close to them, until God’s promise is fulfilled. God will never change the predetermined destiny.
وَلَو أَنَّ قُرءانًا سُيِّرَت بِهِ الجِبالُ أَو قُطِّعَت بِهِ الأَرضُ أَو كُلِّمَ بِهِ المَوتىٰ بَل لِلَّهِ الأَمرُ جَميعًا أَفَلَم يَا۟يـَٔسِ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا أَن لَو يَشاءُ اللَّهُ لَهَدَى النّاسَ جَميعًا وَلا يَزالُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا تُصيبُهُم بِما صَنَعوا قارِعَةٌ أَو تَحُلُّ قَريبًا مِن دارِهِم حَتّىٰ يَأتِىَ وَعدُ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُخلِفُ الميعادَ
Suffering is good for awareness of the soul to return to GOD Alone for connection and protection.
GOD bless .
