The Young Man and The Scholar
There was a young man who went overseas to study for quite a long time. When he returned, he asked his parents to find him a religious scholar or an expert who could answer his 3 questions.
Finally, his parents were able to find him a Muslim scholar.
Young man: Who are you and can you answer my questions?
Scholar: I'm one of Allah's (subhana wa Ta'la) slaves and inshaAllah I will be able to answer your questions.
Young man: Are you sure because a lot of experts and scholars were unable to answer my questions.
Scholar: I will try my best
Young man: I have three questions.
1.Does GOD exist? If so show me His shape?
2.What is takdir? (Fate)
3.If shaytan (devil) is created from fire, then why will he be thrown into the hell fire in the end? It certainly will not hurt him at all, since shaytan (devil) and hell were both created from fire....
Suddenly the scholar slapped the young mans face very hard.
Young man : Why are you getting angry at me?
Scholar: I am not getting angry. The slap is my answer to all three questions.
Young man: I really don't understand
Scholar: How did you feel after I slapped you?
Young man: Of course I felt pain
Scholar: Show me the shape of pain!
Young man: I cannot
Scholar: This is my first answer. All of us feel GOD's existence without being able to see His shape. Last night did you dream that you will be slapped by me?
Young man: No
Scholar: Did you ever think that you will get a slap from me today?
Young man: No
Scholar: This is takdir (fate) . My hand that I used to slap you - what is it created from?
Young man: It is created from skin
Scholar: How about your face - what is it created from?
Young man: Skin
Scholar: How did u feel after I slapped you?
Young man: Pain
Scholar: Even though shaytan (devil) and hell were both created from fire, if Allah wants, InshAllah hell will become a very painful place for the shaytan.
