Three Tough Questions…

Three Tough Questions…

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 any expert who could answer his three Questions. Finally, his parents were able to find a Muslim scholar.

Young Man: Who are you? Can you answer my questions?

Scholar: I am one of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala)'s slaves and Insha Allah (God willing), I will be able to answer your questions.

Young Man: Are you sure? A lot of professors and experts were not able to answer my questions.


Scholar: I will try my best, with the help of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala).

Young Man: I have three questions.

1. Does God exist? If so, show me His shape.

2. What is taqdeer (fate)?

3. If shaitan (Devil) was created from the fire, why at the end he will be thrown to hell that is also created from fire. It certainly will not hurt him at all, since Shaitan (Devil) and the hell were created from fire. Did God not think of it this far?

Suddenly, the Scholar slapped the young man's face very hard!

The young man [feeling pain]: Why did you get angry at me?

Scholar: I am not angry. The slap is my answer to your three questions.

Young Man: I really don't understand.


Scholar: How did you feel after I slapped you?


Young Man: Of course, I felt the pain.

Scholar: So do you believe that pain exists?

Young Man: Yes.

Scholar: Show me the shape of the pain!

Young Man: I cannot

Scholar: That 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: That is taqdeer (fate) my second answer…My hand that I used to slap you, what is it created from?

Young Man: It is created from flesh.


Scholar: How about your face, what is it created from?

Young Man: Flesh.

Scholar: How did you feel after I slapped you?

Young Man: In pain.

Scholar: That's it. This is my third answer. Even though Shaitan (devil) and also the hell were also created from the fire, if Allah wants, Insha'Allah (God willing), the Hell-fire will become a very painful place for Shaitan.


The wise Scholar was Imam Abu Hanifa [Rahmatullah Alaiy] and the man, was a famous Jewish scholar of that time and after this incident he became a Muslim and accepted the right path. This shows that logical proofs are also the way to spread Islam.
