Answers from God

Have you ever had these questions? Ponder the answers from God as stated in Holy Quran:

Why am I afflicted by trials?  “Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe" and they will not be tried? But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars.” Quran chapter 29 verse 2-3

Why don’t I get what I want? “…But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” Quran 2:216

Why is this calamity so hard for me? “Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.” Quran 2:286

Frustrated? “So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers.” Quran 3:139

How shall I deal with hardship? “And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah].” Quran 2:45

What will I get in the end? “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise.” Quran 9:111

To whom shall I rely on? “But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, "Sufficient for me is Allah; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne." Quran 9:129

I can’t bear with this problem! “Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people." Quran 12:87

The Answer of Sultan Brunei

The following is the answer of Sultan Brunei to the west regarding stoning to death as the punishment for gay:

BANDAR SERI BAGAWAN, Brunei – In your countries you practice freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion, etc. It’s in your constitution It’s your political system, your national identity, your rights, your way of life.

In my country, we practice a Malay, Islamic, Monarchical system and we’re going to start practicing the laws of Islam, Sharia Law. Islam is in our constitution, our national identity, our rights, our way of life.

We may find loopholes in your laws and justice system and you may have found ours, but this is our country. Just like you practice your right to be gay, etc. for this world you live in now, we practice our rights to be Muslims for this world and the Hereafter.

This is an Islamic country practising Islamic law. Why don’t you worry about your kids being gunned down in schools, worry about your prisons being unable to accommodate convicts, worry about your high rate of crimes and DUIs, worry about your high suicide and abortion rate, worry about whatever it is that you should be worried about there. Many religions are against homosexuality, it’s nothing new.

The moment you hear that Islam and Muslims making a stand and trying to reaffirm their faith, you judge, you boycott, you say that it’s wrong, it’s stupid, it’s barbaric.

Again, go back to those worries that you should focus on I’ve mentioned earlier. Is it not wrong to legalize deadly weapons, is it not wrong to allow unborn babies to be killed, is it not wrong to allow a lifestyle that results in AIDS and discontinuation of the next generation?

Why do you care so much what’s happening here in an Islamic nation when you didn’t even bat an eyelid about the Syrians, Bosnians, Rohingyas, Palestinians, etc.

Thousands are being killed there and you don’t care, not one is killed here under this Sharia Law, and you make a big fuss, even when the citizens here who are directly affected by it, accepts it with peace.

Punishments may be harsher but it does not mean it’s easier to be carried out. There are processes to go through before an actual conviction. We are fine with it, we are happy. – Brunei United

Poverty, is it from God?

Please fill the blanks…

1. God (Allah) creates LAUGH and….
2. Allah causes DEATH ad gives….
3. Allah creates MALE and …..
4. Allah gives WEALTH and ……

Honestly, most of us will fill the blanks with the following answers:
1. CRY / WEEP
2. LIFE
3. FEMALE
4. POVERTY

Are those answers correct? Let’s check them with the Qur’an, which is the manual book for human being. Does God have the same answers?

وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ أَضْحَكَ وَأَبْكَى

"And that it is He who makes [one] laugh and weep." (Quran chapter 53 verse 43).

وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ أَمَاتَ وَأَحْيَا

“And that it is He who causes death and gives life.” (Quran 53:44).

وَأَنَّهُ خَلَقَ الزَّوْجَيْنِ الذَّكَرَ وَالْأُنثَى

“And that He creates the two mates – the male and female. (Quran 53:45).

وَأَنَّهُ هُوَ أَغْنَى وَأَقْنَى

“And that it is He who enriches and suffices.” (Quran 53:48).

It turns out that most of us answer the first three correctly and fill the fourth blank wrongly.

God’s answer for number 4 is not poverty but sufficiency. Praise be to God as He only enriches and suffices. He does not create poverty; He does not make people poor. That is not God’s attribute. One of the attributes of God is that God is The Most Merciful, so, it is impossible for God to do any harm to human being.
 

Actually, it is us, human being, who create poverty. Such condition happens out of many factors such as economic recession & economic injustice due to corrupt economic system and people’s laziness in making effort to get out of poor condition.

But, in reality, poverty often happens because we are not grateful for what we have. We always want more and more riches… We always want to buy more and more clothes, cars, jewelry, houses, etc. Ingratitude leads to never-ending desire for wanting everything more despite the fact that we don’t need them…

On the other hand, people who are grateful to God are always happy as they are contented all the time. They might not be rich but they don’t feel poor at all. In other words, they feel 'rich' inside (their soul).

Being grateful is one of God’s rule that must be obeyed. It is the act of worship and is the proof of our submission to God’s will. God says, “O you who have believed, eat from the good things which We have provided for you and be grateful to Allah if it is [indeed] Him that you worship.” (Quran 2:172)

God doesn’t need to be thanked; God doesn’t need to be praised. Yet, God commands us to be grateful to Him because He knows that being grateful is good for our soul. When we are grateful to God, we feel peace, calm, and happiness in our soul. Being grateful brings so much spiritual benefit that money can’t buy.

“And We had certainly given Luqman wisdom [and said], "Be grateful to Allah." And whoever is grateful is grateful for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever denies [His favor] – then indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy.” (Quran 31:12)

Poverty, both in spiritual and economical sense, is bad thing. On the other hand, God is the source of kindness. Thus, it is impossible that God, being The Kindest & The Most Merciful, bestow poverty for His servants.  

God does not make people poor. God only gives wealth and suffices. Yet, if we are ungrateful to Him, ‘poverty’ will surely come.
