Question: Why do bad things happen to good people?
Answer: As we know, the Covenant of God with man, for beholding His Spirit in Trust, has been on the basis of complete free will of his choice and action, and of which the consequences and responsibility, during his lifetime on Earth and in the World. Other important statements of observation of the Covenant:
- As Everything in this World is Decreed by God in due portion; meaning, whatever we do, or even think, producing a certain amount of Energy that we bring into the Common Pot of our World (as we are producers of the Energy of the World) ; thus every time we follow God’s Rule, Admonitions and Way, we charge the share of our Spirit by using It in Its current density; thus producing Good Energy (of the Spirit) for ourselves and other inhabitant of the World in the Common Pot;
- and whenever we choose following other ways than God’s, abusing the Energy of the Spirit in straying, we produce negative energy in ourselves and for the others in the Common Pot. Therefore, our action, thought, word, in this life, has a return consequence in due portion. But as we are not the only person who acts in this world; and we share the action of the other seven billion inhabitants, every instance, poured into this Common Pot; so if we are not Protected by the Good Energy surrounding and protecting us, we become vulnerable to hazardous events in this World. And as today, unfortunately, the Common Pot is getting completely full of bad energy of idol worshipers and wrong doers. Thus, good people and bad people risk the same danger of hazardous events (8:25) !
(8:25) “And guard yourselves against an affliction which may not smite those of you exclusively who are unjust; and know that All’h (The Ruling of the Administration of the World) , Is Severe in requiting.”
In the Judgment of God, at the Judgment Day, good people and bad people they do not get the same treatment of course. Nevertheless, the Ruling of the Administration of the World is the same for everyone! And the reason that God Has Warned against leaving ourselves unprotected. The Commandments of the acts and service of worship of God (upholding the Salat; paying the Zakat, yearly fasting and once in lifetime, if possible, the pilgrimage to the centre of Energy) are precisely for protecting ourselves by the Insurance of the Protection of God against such afflictions and dangerous hazardous events of the World!
