Good, Bad and God [Quote 444]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Dunya impinges on us human beings in all kinds of ways.

Dunya is Arabic in the Qur’an for “The World” – meaning this earthly world in which we live today.

As distinct from another world, Aakhirah – the next everlasting world that we will enter after death.

So, while we human beings are in this world, the Dunya, all kinds of things happen to us. Some we call good and some we tend to see as bad.

But good or bad, the impact of all them on one’s life is often very real and tangible.

But then some of the more clear-headed among us look at the source where all of it comes from, where all things have their origin: God Almighty.

Then some of the more blessed ones among us hang our heads in shame and say: How can anything bad ever come from someone so good!

And that is in spite of all that the 19th Century French Deist and revolutionary thinker Voltaire had to say in that most biting satirical book of his called Candide, ou l’Optimisme.

In response a Believer, if he is truly blessed and guided by God, would tend to say:    

Radwitu Billahi Rabban wa Bil-Islami Deenan wa Bi Muhammadin, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallama, Nabiyyan wa Rasoolaa!

END

(Dr. Pasha)
