Qadr and dealing with Doubts

Qadr and dealing with Doubts

Yesterday in Masjid al-Nabawi, Shaykh Sulayman al-Ruhaylee (حفظ الله) was asked a question about Qadr; the questioner wanted to know why does Allaah do such and such & why does He do this & this etc.

The shaykh answered by saying this is سوء الادب مع الله – bad mannerisms with Allaah. We don’t need to know the wisdom behind everything. Everything Allaah does is either a blessing or an act of justice.

I think this is a good way to deal with some of the shubahaat that a lot of people ask these days as knowing the apparent wisdom behind it will not benefit them anyway. What is more important is strengthen their relationship and Emaan in Allaah so they can get to a point where they hear and obey. Allaah will not be asked about what He does, however we will be.

لَا يُسْأَلُ عَمَّا يَفْعَلُ وَهُمْ يُسْأَلُونَ
“He is not questioned about what He does, but they will be questioned.” (Quran 21:23)
