Being more concerned about things that are within one’s control

Q: Why is there so much suffering in the world. Why do babies and children suffer abuse even from parents? why are such precious and innocent lives tormented. I know life is a test but why do these little lives come into being only to be tortured?


A: Things that are not in our control, we should not fall into. We will not be questioned regarding them. We should be more concerned about things that we have control over.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
