00:00:01--> 00:00:01

The next question

00:00:03--> 00:00:06

My name is Mohammed Hassan from Lucknow India.

00:00:08--> 00:00:19

My non Muslim friend asked me, Why is the agenda and jahannam and Islam? If Allah is merciful, then why does he punish people in Hellfire for committing check?

00:00:22--> 00:00:32

So basically the brother has two questions, why is the agenda and jahannam? And the second question that why does Allah subhanaw taala punish people for committing ship?

00:00:33--> 00:01:03

The first question regarding gender and Johanna, Allah subhanho wa 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 Subhana Allah says in Surah mulk jasminum 67 was sent to a lady hola como tal hyah Talia Baloo accom au come Asad Ramallah, it is Allah who has created that a life to test which of you are good indeed, this life, it is a test for the hereafter.

00:01:04--> 00:01:15

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 is general for those.

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

And if you do bad deeds, we will go into hell fire.

00:01:21--> 00:01:33

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 conducting an examination.

00:01:35--> 00:01:41

Certain students they fail certain students they get first class first marks, they get full marks.

00:01:42--> 00:01:50

Now, can the teacher give all the students full marks or first class first marks? But actually No.

00:01:53--> 00:02:03

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,

00:02:04--> 00:02:12

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

00:02:14--> 00:02:23

similarly, if students appear for a medical examination, certain students they fail certain students they get high marks.

00:02:25--> 00:02:40

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

00:02:41--> 00:02:45

they will kill human beings. Similarly, an engineer

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

students they appear for an engineering degree.

00:02:51--> 00:03:01

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.

00:03:02--> 00:03:44

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, it 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's just if Allah subhanaw taala wanted he could have admitted every one to

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

paradise, but well is the test.

00:03:49--> 00:04:25

Now coming to a second part of the question, wherein you said that why does Allah subhanaw taala punish people for committing schilke Allah subhanaw taala clearly says in the glorious Koran, and so nessa Chapman forest and 48 and so the Nyssa chapter number four was 116 in a la hella yo feudal and your Shaka be way out of middleman, Luna, Delica, Lima Yeshua, Wilma usually Kabila he fought for Cardiff Tara if minalima and another place for Cordova Laval and bayda, that if Allah subhanaw taala, if he pleases, he may forgive any sin, but the sin of sherek He will never forgive.

00:04:27--> 00:04:54

So Allah subhanaw taala if he pleases, he may forgive any sin, but the sin of shake, 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 shares before he dies, if he asks for to repentance, Allah subhanaw taala He will forgive him.

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

I would like to give you an example.

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

The

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

As a person who robs the police man, arrest this person. Now can the policeman say that I am merciful? Let the robber go scot free, but natural No, the person has committed a wrong at he needs to be punished for his wrong act.

00:05:17--> 00:05:31

Similarly, if anyone does anything wrong, does bad 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.
