do you think the sunnis are wrong or right in the concept of justice?

nabi Ibraheem (as) was asked my God to kill his own child nabi ismael (as) . agree?

sunni concept of justice is : because god said do it, it is good, god said dont , it is bad

shias: it is bad, so god says dont do it. it is good, so god tells you to do it.

then why nabi Ibraheem was told to kill his own child if we know for sure that killing is a bad thing.

killing is bad, because god said"do it" it became good.

so, sunnis are right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

shias are right too, I am not saying shias are wrong, but they must get more metaphysical.

What made you think that Allah (SWT) would let Abraham slaughter his own son?

Allah wanted to test Ibrahim's faith thats it !! , He wanted to see whether Ibrahim had not grown to love his son more than the almighty...

No, Allah did not lie. He really ordered Abraham (as) to act as he did, but He really did not allow him to kill innocent at the end. It was test for Ibrahim (as) and his son, - both of them agreeded about it. It was just trust test and Abraham (as) knew that what ever Allah orders him to do has wisdom in it and Allah would fullfill only justice in His orders. The test was that Abraham (as) had to trust Allah that Allah will not ask him to do anything injustice and also be ready to sacriface his son for Allah. And in the end, Allah´s wisdom was obvious and trought miracle Allah´s ordered only justice.

Sunni´s are wrong, because it was not good to kill own son. It was good to trust Allah, that Allah will not order injustice and His wisdom is over all.

Book: Justice of good

Chapter 4, al bada.

Please read the whole chapter.

http://www.al-islam.org/adl_ilahi/

ps. As you can see from this explanation that Allah did not actually shown in dream that Ismael would be killed. Read carefully, and you will see that Allah did no lie, and Allah only orders what is good and justice.

2. The Sacrifice of Prophet Ismai’l:

Now let us look at another example. Prophet Ibrahim was shown in a dream that he was sacrific­ing his son in the name of God. As it was a dream, he must have seen how he was to kill Isma'il. He must have seen himself binding the hands and feet of the child, blindfolding himself and then putting the knife on the child's throat and pressing it down. Naturally, by seeing this dream he though he was required to kill his only son Isma'il in that way. Therefore, he steeled his heart to sacrifice his only child.

The child heard it and prepared himself to be killed in obedience to the command of God. Father and son both were willing to sacrifice everything in the name of Allah. Prophet Ibrahim did as he had creamed himself doing; he bound the hands and feet of the child and put him in the position of prostration; arid blindfolding himself, put the knife and cut the throat. After removing the blindfold from his eyes, he saw Isma'il smiling and a lamb slaughtered in his place.

Prophet ibrahim thoaght that he had failed in his test. But he had done what he had seen himself doing in dream. Of course, Allah had not informed him of the events up to the last stage. Because if Ibrahim had known that Isma'il would be saved, or if Isma'il had known that he would be saved, there would have been no meaning in that test; there would not have been any chance of showing their willingness to sacrifice everything in the name of Allah. So God showed to Ibrahim in his dream the events to. a certain stage but kept him unaware of the first stage; not informing him how the whole episode was to end. Because they did not know the result. Ibrahim and Isma'il were able to show, how willing they were to obey the command of God even to the extent of sacrificing their lives and the lives of their dear ones in His name.

If they had known the result from the beginning, the test would have been meaningless.
