As we all know that Allah intervenes in whatever we do, he is looking at us and nothing can happen without his will. In that case does Allah own the events like children dying in a bomb as well? And if he does then isn't it that he does nothing and just watches other people in pain? When we say that Allah loves you more than mother etc. A mother would never watch her children dying in this way.

Then there are people who say that Allah wants you to do something about it etc. My question becomes humans have limitations. I cannot go to Syria into a war zone even if I wanted to but Allah can do anything! Then why is he silent and letting it happen. And please I want a good answer not something like "God works in mysterious ways and we can't know anything for sure" or "This place is a test not real etc." the pain that these children and their families face are REAL. Period.

So kindly let me know your answers on this.

  • The answer is that it is a test. What more do you want? That doesn't make the pain any less real. In fact, if the pain wasn't real, there would be no test. But, the pain is the test. – The Z Dec 28 '19 at 15:19
  • please tell me again why a 3 year old is getting gang raped and burned afterwards in India? What kind of a sick minded test is that? – Jess Garnald Feb 5 at 23:17

This is more of a chat question, however a very interesting question nevertheless. I, too, have thought about this often, and have come to a conclusion that I see fit personally. You may accept it, or deny it.

Allah (SWT) is all-mighty. He is considered the all-wise and most noble. However, Allah (SWT) does not always intervene in what we do. He is always there and watches us, however he does not always intervene. In the Qura'an, we read stories of the tribes of Prophet Moses and Jesus (PBUT), and it is specifically said that Allah sends these adhab (terrors) to the tribes for not being believers (if you do not know the two stories, I advise that you read them).

However, I believe your question may be targeting more on the side of mosque shootings (God forbid), where people are doing Salat and are believers. Allah does not decide that "I am going to kill these people today". Allah is all-merciful as well, he would never want to kill people, and Allah loves us more than our mothers, as you said. Some people are just crazed deviants from the light of Allah, and they do these things. Allah will not have mercy on those who cheat, lie, and kill the innocent, and rather the innocent believers of Islam!

In short, Allah does not intervene in these bombings and shootings. It is the crazed deviants that commit these ill deeds.

Again, a very interesting and intriguing question. Let me know what you think.
