Purpose of our Creation

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 09/11/2016 - 17:41

Salam I am paraphrasing slightly but it seems that some people say God created this world because He wanted to be known. I find it hard to understand why God would want appreciate or gratitude from humans, and why he would create us for that person? This question is always popping up and no one I have spoken to has been able to give me a full and comprehensive answer that has satisfied me. Why were we created? Why did God create us? If the purpose of our existence is to serve God why does everyone have different amounts of hardship?

Philosophy of Worship

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 08/15/2016 - 03:52

Why does Allah demand so much praise and worship. A supreme being shouldn't care about whether it is praised or not. Furthermore, why would a just supreme being allocate punishment to someone simply for not worshiping/praising it?

Suicide in Islam

Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 08/12/2016 - 22:55

Quran 2:286 "Allah does not task any soul beyond its own capacity..." If that is the case why do so many people commit suicide and even more feel suicidal. Being suicidal means that one cannot bear the pain that was placed to them in this life. Furthermore suicide is punished as murder in the hereafter. So Allah, who is supposedly just, placed someone (or allowed them to be placed) in a situation where they want to kill themselves. Then Allah decides to torture them forever due to their misery in this world. How does this make any sense?

Punishment or Test?

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 07/10/2016 - 15:23

Salam I've just had a divorce and my in laws have spread very bad things about me. They have sent fake papers about me to the community regarding my health. It has affected my reputation and the way people perceive me a lot. I'm really upset and saddened by this because I try to be a good person but I feel really unlucky and bad.

Black Magic & Evil Prayers

Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 07/01/2016 - 21:06

Salam,

I wanted to ask is the concept and principal of buddai and somebody conducting black magic on someone real in islam? If it is, I find it difficult to understand when we talk about nothing being able to occur without the will of God, so then how can bad blessings or black magic, or taveez occur?

This makes me very concerned and saddened Please help me

Thanks

Lectures on End Times

Submitted by Anonymous on Sat, 06/18/2016 - 15:36

I have been watching some lectures by a sunni sheikh ( Sh.Imran Hosein) who talks about the End times, freemasonry and dajjal. I find his talks to be quite interesting, but yet i'm not satisfied since its from a Sunni source. please provide me with a link that i may refer to such a lecture or topic given from a Shia perspective.

Desperate for Help

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 06/12/2016 - 20:16

Salaam.

If one keeps leaving Allah after trying to worship Him, keeps sinning, and feels that either Allah does not exist or exists but hates him so does not worship Allah, what should one do? I have incurable diseases and feel ignored whenever I ask Allah for help and become more angry and depressed as my life keeps getting worse and I see innocent Shias suffering and seeking help yet they continue to suffer and die.

I really want to euthanise myself.

Why Worship God?

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 06/02/2016 - 11:16

Salaam Alaikum,

I need some perspective on this matter: an agnostic friend asked me, even if God does indeed exists, why should I worship Him? I am at a loss to answer. His question stems from the position of not seeing God as being active in this world. He already dedicates his life to helping make this world better, and sees no benefit in worshipping God, even if God exists.
