The next question
My name is Muhammad Hassan from Lucknow India.
My non Muslim friend asked me why is the Jana and Johanna and Islam? If Allah is merciful, then why does he punish people in Hellfire for committing Sheikh?
So basically the brothers has two questions. Why is the Jana and jahannam? And the second question that why does Allah subhanaw taala punish people for committing shirk?
The first question regarding Jana and Jahannam, Allah subhanaw taala he has created as human beings, he has given us human beings a Free Will this life it is a test for the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Mulk Shabnam 67 was sent to Allah the Halacha mounter will hire Talia Balu welcome, or you can ask Allah is Allah who has created a live to test which of your good deeds this life, it is a test for the hereafter.
And based on our good deeds based on our righteous deeds, we will enter into the gardens of Paradise. There are various levels of China, the highest it has genital photos.
And if you do bad deeds, we will go into hellfire.
Allah subhanaw taala he has given us a free will. So our reward the reward for our good deeds, it is Jana. And I would like to give you a simple example. A teacher conducts an examination.
Certain students they fail certain students they get first class first marks, they get full marks.
Now, can the teacher give all the students full marks or first class first marks? But actually no.
Because the students who worked hard they will say why did I toil Why did I put in so much effort. If I knew that I would get full marks, I wouldn't have worked hard,
I wouldn't have put in so much effort. So, even if the teacher wants to be merciful in this situation, the teacher has to be just
similarly, if students appear for a medical examination, certain students they fail certain students they get high marks.
Now can the examiner can the teacher give all the students high marks, but natural law those students who fail they cannot be given high marks because later on when they become a doctor, instead of saving human lives, they will take human lives
they will kill human beings. Similarly an engineer
students they appear for an engineering degree.
So certain students they get high marks certain students they fail. Now can the teacher give those students who have failed high marks but natural No.
Because later on, when they get the degree, instead of constructing buildings, they will end up destroying buildings, they will build buildings which will fall down. So when the students they appear for the medical examination, they get the degree this is their reward, that they will become a doctor, Allah subhanaw taala based on our deeds, this life is a test for the hereafter. If we do good deeds, if we do righteous deeds, we will enter into the gardens of Paradise. If you do bad deeds, we will go into hellfire Allah subhanaw taala He is the Most Merciful, but at the same time Allah subhanaw taala he is just if Allah subhanaw taala wanted he could have admitted every one to
Paradise, but well as a test.
Now coming to a second part of the question,
wherein you said that why does Allah subhanaw taala punish people for committing Shirke Allah subhanaw taala clearly says in the Glorious Quran in surah nisa Chapter Four Psalm 48. And so the Nyssa chapter number four was 216 in hola hola El Faro and you should be well fiddle Maradona dal you can even Yasha Wolmar you should be la he Fauchard forklift or if Monaldi MA and another place *a Doval love Allah, Allah Ada, that if Allah subhanaw taala if he pleases, he may forgive any sin, but the sin of Sheikh he will never forgive.
So Allah subhanaw taala if he pleases He may forgive any sin, but the sin of Sheikh he will never forgive and he gives opportunity to human beings several times not once, not twice, but several times in this life. Allah subhanaw taala He is merciful, but at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala He is just and if the person if he has committed Sheikh before he dies, if he asks for to repentance, Allah subhanaw taala He will forgive him.
I would like to give you an example.
There is a person who robs the police man, arrest this person. How can the policeman say that I am merciful? Let the robber go scot free, but natural No, the person has committed a wrong act, he needs to be punished for his wrong act.
Similarly, if anyone does anything wrong, does by did Allah subhanaw taala He is merciful, but at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala he has to be just with these people. I hope that answers your question.
