    how is allah merciful? (OP)


    how can you describe Allah merciful when he threatens all 'unbelievers' with everlasting punishment in Jahannam, and even Muslims fro the so called '72 misguided sects'?

    Waadih?
    So why is the aspect of mercy highlighted the most? No other king does that.

    If Allah is not merciful Allah need not give a sip of water to UNBELIEVERS or a breath of air , what will you do if all the water goes inside the earth (does not hold water as in many parts of the earth) or mixes with salt water which is present in the most of the earth

    Glorious Quran 67:30 '' Say, "Have you considered: if your water was to become sunken [into the earth], then who could bring you flowing water?"''

    Just a Muslim with Glorious Quran and (hadith) sunnah as my guide as in verse 41:33 '' And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims."

    From Occupied Palestine:

    We have suffered too much for too long. We will not accept apartheid masked as peace. We will settle for no less than our freedom.

    I don´t think it´s evasive. Anyways, you can´t compare Allah to any human and his/hers capacity to rule. Allah surely is a wise king.

    They may be succesful in the worldly life but how do we know they get mercy at the Judgement Day?

    Verse (2:155) And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,

    This is life is only temporary, and it is a test to see how the hungry will react. i.e do you steal, and spread corruption on earth, or do you not steal, and work hard for your bread etc.. God doesn't have to give us food, our existence in itself is a privilege, not a right.
    Allah (SWT) is the inevitable truth, and he says in the quran that he is just, which is enough for me alhamdulilah.

    versus people who have it all set, doesnt that skew the results? when you are hungry and survival instincts kick in, that's how we are made. Its like asking a toyota corolla why it doesn't deliver the performance of a Ferrari.

    Re: how is allah merciful?

    What results dude? You're talking about GOD. GOD by definition is the PERFECT, most knowing, the creator, etc... And when you apply that to your life, it will put everything into perspective, and begin to make sense.
    Yes, human beings are not perfect, and that is why we need the guidance of god (swt)

    How can any legal system in this world sentence an individual to 100 years or more in prison for committing just one single crime? How is this justice? How is this fair? That person will miss his or her family, children and the people he or she loves? How is this even remotely 'merciful'?

    And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute, but the one who loses Allah will never find anything to replace Him.”

    Who else can retain justice for Hitler's incineration of millions of Jews. It's impossible to justify or recompense this crime in this world no matter what, but god can as he is capable of all things.

    Allah , the All wise knows whom to give and how much to give. for some one bad he has given more to them to fall in a trap. For some one good Allah has restricted to save them from Greater trouble. So be happy with whatever we have is the belief of devout muslims though we are obliged to try for the best. This is a wide topic which is also far from our human understandings.

    Read this post #11 about a Blind devout Muslim and see the consequence of getting his Sight. So his blindness was actually a mercy of Allah for him. Allah knows the best

    Why did Allah make people have disabilities?
