    Doubts in Allah (OP)


    Hello, I’m trying to believe that there is a greater power out there but I’m struggling.

    Why is the world not eternal?
    Can’t bacteria have evolved into humans?
    Why don’t many people believing in God? Many scientists and people of knowledge don’t. I’m so sad that I believe this. Will Allah ever guide me back? I’ve tried to read the Quran and Hadith but I’m still the same. I don’t want any other religion than Islam. But in order for this to happen I must believe. Why is it so hard? I’ve stopped doing all the stuff I was doing before and wonder if I’ll die like this. Might as well enjoy life since I won’t change back.

    Respected brother, Assalaamo alaykum.

    1. What I said was in fact extremely important because @stilltrying she said a few times that she is going to Hell. This is not true. You never know. It is expected that Allah will guide you right and protect you from Hell. Always keep good expectations from Allah. To a brother/sister who is confused about Tawheed, we must show both sides of the picture, side with mercy and the side with the severe punishment. If this was not true then Allah wouldn't show the two sides repeatedly. Know that Allah is the most Merciful but All-Wise and knows our nature. So Allah informed us again and again as:

    Surah Al-An'aam verse 165 (translation)


    (6:165) For He it is Who has appointed you vicegerent over the earth, and has exalted some of you over others in rank that He may try you in what He has bestowed upon you.146 Indeed your Lord is swift in retribution, and He is certainly All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate.

    ************************************************** ************************************************

    As a matter of fact, mankind fears punishment
    more
    and becomes obedient with the thought of punishment than with the expectation of kindness and mercy. In the above (verse 165 of the surah Al-An'aam) Allah mentioned His Attribute of retribution (punishing) first and then the quality of Mercy /Forgiving.

    2. What I said is true in the light of the Holy Quraan and the Sunnah. Once Ibraaheem alayhi salaam said that only those become hopeless from Allah's Mercy who are astray. See the translation of the verse 56 of the surah Al-Hijr:


    56. He (Ibraaheem) said, "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?"

    Assalamu Alaykom sister.

    I am fully aware and do agree/acknowledge what you have stated in the first point. However, you should also keep in mind that a person who is doubting Allah's existence, will surely doubt the punishment that ensues, thus rendering such warnings and threats as useless points to mention. These threats can even have a negative impact such as to detering people away from islam if not mentioned in a correct manner. In this case, a person who is in doubt will surely benefit much more if they heard an intellectual argument that can challenge their perception of their current theory about the natural state of this world.

    Always put yourself in the shoes of the people you are talking with so that you can see their perspective and guide them from their point of view to yours. Find a common ground of perspective to build your argument from there so that it will be easier for your listeners to follow. Dont assume that they will have the same level of knowledge and faith that you have. I find this the best way to reach out to someone in need.

    As for the Ayaa you mentioned, i do strongly acknowledge that threats are important and keep people in check, but only for those who already believe in him. And though the attribute of God's wrath was mentioned first, 2 of His merciful attributes followed <3 .
    (Quran 3:159) So by mercy from Allah, [OMuhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] andharsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them andask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you havedecided, then rely upon Allah . Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].

    And Allah knows best.
