Example text

In the Qur'an, God informs us that such wealth is evil and will only bring torment in hell: Those who are tight-fisted with the bounty God has given them should not suppose that that is better for them. No indeed, it is worse for them! What they were tight-fisted with will be hung around their necks on the Day of Rising. God is the inheritor of the heavens and the earth and God is aware of what you do. (Surah Al 'Imran: 180) In Surat al-Qasas, God relates the story of Qarun. God bestowed great fortune upon Qarun but he became vain due to extent of his wealth, and grew insolent towards his Lord.

Everything, whether apparently evil or good, takes place by God's Will. We experience only those things God wishes for us. God reminds us this fact as follows: If God afflicts you with harm, no one can remove it except Him. If He desires good for you, no one can avert His favour. He bestows it on whichever of His slaves He wills. He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Yunus: 107) Consequently, whatever we experience in this life, whether or not it seems good or evil, is, in reality, good, since it is what our Lord predetermines for us.

Surat al-Mulk: 2) In many verses of the Qur'an, God makes it clear that man is created to be a servant to his Creator. It is also stressed that the life of this world is a test, designed to distinguish the Reasons That Prevent Some People From Seeing The Good good from the evil: We made everything on the earth adornment for it so that We could test them to see whose actions are the best. (Surat al-Kahf: 7) Because man's entire life is part of a test, nothing that befalls him is accidental. If a person fails to grasp that there is a purpose behind these events, falsely assuming that they happen apart and independently of God, then he commits a grave error.
