Purposely doing wrong & blaming Allah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

AWW Purposely doing wrong & blaming Allah I would appreciate an urgent reply. I know of someone very close to me who use to be a decent Muslim however one day she had a thought that if Allah knows what we are going to do why do it & why didn’t Allah make everyone Muslim so this played on her mind & then she decided to tell me & said she doesn’t fear Allah & is going to hell, at first she felt really bad & I tried explaining to her however now whenever anyone does something she thinks Allah made them do it. She use to look after herself, her family, her job now she said she’s not bothered & doesn’t care less about anything. She’s told me she’s a hypocrite & she thought maybe this is Allah way of sending her astray. She purposely thought why did the prophet have so many wives & she said she hates everyone coz Allah made them. She doesn’t really talk much anymore coz she said Allah already knows what we’re going to say. She could never acknowledge death now She had thought of suicide as she knows she’s failed coz she knows she should be sorry but she goes she not & she said Allah knows who is going to be sorry & puts guilt in people’s heart but she thinks Allah makes her think bad & she’s not sorry & she says why does wrong happen Allah can stop it from happening. She use to have a love for looking after young children, caring for her parents, old people giving 100% & helping everyone out now she’s stopped that & her parents tell her to listen which she doesn’t but in her mind she goes she doesn’t . She also likes being unkempt & doesn’t look after herself anymore. I make her pray her namaz & Quran but she says can’t change her mind of thinking, is there anything I can do so Allah makes her better & she doesn’t commit suicide, she’s only 24 ?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We make dua Allah Taala guide the sister in reference.

Her understanding of how Allah Taala deals is incorrect. We believe that Allah is Al-Hakeem (The One with Most Wisdom). Every action of Allah has wisdom in it. We may not be able to fathom the depth of the wisdom with our limited minds.

However, according to our limited understanding, we are in this world to be tested for our Imaan. Our temptations are part of the test. If there were no negatives, adopting a positive would not be a choice and not the result of a test. There had to be a negative for us to choose a positive and earn the pleasure of closeness to Allah Ta’āla. Examining the presence of evil from this angle is actually a mercy in disguise for true believers.

You could refer the sister to a local reputable Aalim who will try to change her mentality. Providing her with Islamic literature would also be beneficial.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
