“A VERY USEFUL CONVERSATION ABT THREE QUESTIONS”

Standard

Three Questions

There was a young man who went overseas to study for quite a long time. When he returned, he asked his parents to find him a religious scholar or any expert who could answer his 3 Questions.
Finally, his parents were able to find a Muslim scholar.

YOung man:
Who are you? Can you answer my questions?

SchoLar:
I am one of Allah (SubHana Wa Ta`ala)’s slaves and Insha-Allah (God willing), I will be able to answer your questions.

YOung man:
Are you sure? A lot of Professors and experts were not able to answer my questions.


SchoLar:

I will try my best, with the help of Allah (SubHana Wa Ta`ala).

YOung Man:
I have 3 questions:

1. Does God exist? If so, show me His shape.
2. What is thaqdir (fate)?
3. If shaitan (Devil) was created from the fire, why at the end he will
be thrown to hell that is also created from fire. It certainly will not
hurt him at all, since Shaitan (Devil) and the hell were created from
fire.

Did God not think of it this far?

Suddenly, the SchoLar slapped the young man’s face very hard. Young Man
(felt pain): Why do you get angry at me?

SchoLar:
I am not angry. The slap is my answer to your three questions.

YOung Man:
I really don’t understand.

SchoLar:      
How do you feel after I slapped you?

YOung Man:
Of course, I felt the pain.

SchOlar:      
So do you believe that pain exists?

YOung Man:
Yes.

SchoLar:      
Show me the shape of the pain!

YOung Man:
I cannot.

SchoLar:
That is my first answer. All of us feel God’s existence without being able to see His shape… Last night, did you dream that you will be slapped by me?

YOung Man:
No.


SchoLar:
     
Did you ever think that you will get a slap from me, today?

YOung Man:
No.

SchoLar:
That is takdir (fate) my second answer…… .. My hand that I
used to slap you, what is it created from?

YOung Man:
It is created from flesh.

SchoLar:      
How about your face, what is it created from?

YOung Man:
Flesh.

SchoLar:      
How do you feel after I slapped you?

YOung Man:
In pain.

SchoLar:
That’s it. This is my third answer, Even though Shaitan (Devil)
and also the hell were created from the fire, if Allah wants, insha-Allah (God willing), the hell will become a very painful place for Shaitan. 
  

A CONVERSATION…
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST EXPLANATIONS OF WHY ALLAH ALLOWS PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT I HAVE SEEN:

A MAN WENT TO A BARBERSHOP TO HAVE HIS HAIR CUT AND HIS BEARD TRIMMED.

AS THE BARBER BEGAN TO WORK, THEY BEGAN TO HAVE A GOOD CONVERSATION. THEY TALKED ABOUT SO MANY THINGS AND VARIOUS SUBJECTS WHEN THEY EVENTUALLY TOUCHED ON THE SUBJECT OF ALLAH,

THE BARBER SAID: “I DON’T BELIEVE THAT ALLAH EXISTS.”
“WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?”ASKED THE CUSTOMER.WELL, YOU JUST HAVE TO GO OUT IN THE STREET REALIZE THAT ALLAH DOESN’T EXIST. TELL ME, IF ALLAH EXISTS, WOULD THERE BE SO MANY SICK PEOPLE? WOULD THERE BE ABANDONED CHILDREN? IF ALLAH EXISTED, THERE WOULD BE NEITHER SUFFERING NOR PAIN. I CAN’T IMAGINE A LOVING ALLAH WHO WOULD ALLOW ALL OF THESE THINGS” THE CUSTOMER THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT, BUT DIDN’T RESPOND BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANT TO START AN ARGUMENT.
THE BARBER FINISHED HIS JOB AND THE CUSTOMER LEFT THE SHOP. JUST AFTER HE LEFT THE BARBERSHOP, HE SAW A MAN IN THE STREET WITH LONG, STRINGY, DIRTY HAIR AND AN UNTRIMMED BEARD HE LOOKED DIRTY AND UNKEMPT. THE CUSTOMER TURNED BACK AND ENTERED THE BARBER SHOP AGAIN AND HE SAID TO THE BARBER: “YOU KNOW WHAT? BARBERS DO NOT EXIST.”
“HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?”ASKED THE SURPRISED BARBER.
“I AM HERE, AND I AM A BARBER. AND I JUST WORKED ON YOU!”
“NO!” THE CUSTOMER EXCLAIMED. “BARBERS DON’T EXIST BECAUSE IF THEY DID, THERE WOULD BE NO PEOPLE WITH DIRTY LONG HAIR AND UNTRIMMED BEARDS, LIKE THAT MAN OUTSIDE.”

“AH, BUT BARBERS DO EXIST! THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE DO NOT COME TO ME.”
“EXACTLY” AFFIRMED THE CUSTOMER. “THAT’S THE POINT!

ALLAH, TOO, DOES EXIST! THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO HIM AND DON’T LOOK TO HIM FOR HELP. THAT’S WHY THERE’S SO MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING IN THE WORLD”
