An atheist entered the presence of al-Rida (as) when he had some people in his presence.

Therefore, Abu al-Hasan al-Rida (as) asked him: O man! Can you not see that if your view is correct, and it is absolutely not, then we are equal, despite our prayers, fasting, alms-giving, and the beliefs we profess have not harmed us?

The atheist remained silent.

Then Abu al-Hasan (as) added: However, if our view is the correct one, which is certainly the case, then you are lost, and we are saved.


This must be true:

Driving rationality from irrationality is logically incoherent- a severe Delusion

In the Quraan: SHAKIR: 113.001 Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn, 113.002:  From the evil of what He has created,

"Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is, over all things, Disposer of affairs."[Quran 39:62]


Just because someone has created something which has a bad aspect, does that force the bad aspect onto the creator?

Also, in order to give humans free will, there MUST be both good and evil. Obviously, Allah has created humans to do good, but would it be wise to blame Allah for the humans resorting to evil? He has left humans to do evil because, if he does not, it would remove free will, thus causing the test to be void and useless.

Concerning suffering there are mainly two fundamental questions.

The first is, what is the origin of suffering and from where does it emerge?

The other is whether agony and pain are concordant with the justice and mercy of God.  

All the religious people of the world should answer these two questions.

If God is the Lone Creator of the world and the Manifestation of goodness, then where have all these miseries come from?

Can the God of Goodness be the agent of misery and just as He creates, can also destroy? ......

If there was no free will, life would be completely determined by God, hence pointless because it wouldn’t be an effect of our decisions, then why create life in the first place? Therefore God created a life with purpose and worthy, rather than one in which our decisions play no role and is fully determined. For there to be free will we must be capable of both moral good and moral evil (the absence of good).

If an all-good God has a very good reason  (creating and worthy life with purpose namely free will) for allowing the absence of good (evil) then there is no paradox because the concept of allowing the absence of good for a good reason does not contradict His all-good nature.
