With all the wars and destruction, that is taking over the world in these past few years, some muslims start to doubt and question Allah’s presence. For me, it’s shocking. Many seem to ask “why isn’t Allah helping those people? why did He leave us?” but why don’t people ever turn the question and ask themselves?
Allah (swt) gave us the freedom to choose what we want to be in this life and what path we want to build our life on. What is happening with the world at this moment, is all a result of what choices we have made. Did Allah tell us to start wars? to destroy and manipulate? or did he tell us to be kind to oneother and spread peace?
Allah never left us, but we surely left him. How many times did you choose to do something that pleased you and others but was against your religion? You would be lying to yourself if you believe that you haven’t ever chose to please others than to please Allah.
The point isn’t to start questioning whether Allah exists or not, or if He has left us or not, because questions like these are meaningless and ignorant. We should be asking ourselves if we, as human beings, are even deserving of peace when we ourselves create wars and disunity.
Allah gave us the freedom to choose the path we please, but nothing comes without consequences. So choose wisely.
