A Mother's Love

"Alamak, habis la.. dah basah nih..Dah la, apa bleh buat." I exclaimed.

"O'oh.. hm, nanti balik boleh cuba seterika kasi dia kering..," My mother assured.

I thought she wasn't serious. Now it's all ironed up.

I just came back from a short weekend getaway and unfortunately, my mini copy of a translation of the Noble Qur'an got wet. The soft and thin pages will never retain the same shape again. Still, my mum tried to do something about it by ironing out the remaining damp pages. I was wondering what was she doing cooped up in the room for past half hour or so.. Masya Allah.

Of course, the book has now expanded a little larger than its original state and is in shambles. I'm probably going to buy a new one and the old one will be disposed of (burnt), but I just had to take a picture of this for memory's sake as a reminder of one of the many numerous little things that my mother does out of love for the sake of her children..

My Lord! Bestow on my parents Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young.

O Allah, forgive me and my parents, and reward them with the finest reward. O Allah, elevate their position in the hereafter and this Dunya; make that which befalls them an expiation for their sins. O Allah, grant them residence in Firdaus, the highest level of Jannah, with the Prophets, the Siddeeqeen, and the Martyrs. Ameen.

Love you Mum, I really appreciate this and all the many other things big or small that you do for us each and every day. (",)

And no it's not Mother's Day.. never wait till Mother's Day..

Striving For Success by The Way of Allah

This is the second article from that I've translated for the benefit of all, insya Allah. (Original article entitled 'Mencari Kemenangan Dengan Acuan Allah' here!) Do note that the accuracy of the translation may not be 100%, but the general idea should be there. It is one of the articles in my personal collection of Islamic articles that I refer to often as a reminder from time to time.


"Hm.. Allah had saved the grossly ignorant dwellers of Mecca who had not only tarnished Masjidil Haram with more than 300 idols but also performed circumumbulation around it naked! But Allah had saved them from the attacks of Abrahah's Elephant Army," I tried to reflect the situation at Mecca just before the birth of Rasoolullaah SAW.

"If such grossly ignorant Meccan dwellers were saved from destruction, why didn't Allah save us? Why are we Muslims continuously at the losing end? Aren't we already worshiping Him? Aren't we the ones who are striving in His Name? Why didn't Allah help us then?" The questions that were disturbing my thoughts became more and more critical.

Moreover, if we were to view it in today's context, whatever that's bad and of ignorance continues to win and flourish, but whatever of Islam and the truth continues to be weakened and oppressed as if it is not being aided.

Where did it go wrong?

I searched deep in thought, while at the same time, my hands searched.. each and every page of Allah's word was turned and contemplated upon until I came to a particular promise by Allah:

“And Allah would not punish them while you (Muhammad sallallaahu'alayhi wasallam) are amongst them, nor will He punish them while they seek (Allah's) forgiveness.” (Al-Anfaal 8 : 33)

That's His promise.

That there will be no tribe that will be left in suffering, if in their midst lies Muhammad SAW (peace and blessings be upon him).

It doesn't matter that the dwellers of Mecca were grossly ignorant, the reason being was that the imminent birth of Muhammad SAW will be from them, hence, it becomes a reason for Allah to save them, just as how Allah had saved those who strive during of the war of Badar, Uhud and even Khandaq which was highly critical due to its situation of potentially endangering the lives of all Muslims back then.

Today, our Prophet SAW (peace and blessings be upon him) is not physically present and will never be.. because his body have returned to its origin. But how about the way we practice our religion? Is our Islam the same as Rasoolullaah's Islam? Is the way we search for success and victory, similar as compared to the way Rasoolullah SAW searched for it? Or in simpler terms, does Rasoolullah SAW, figuratively speaking, 'exist' in our daily lives? Do we try to follow the way he lived, drink, eat or go about performing his responsibilities in the challenges of everyday life?

Maybe Rasoolullaah SAW is not present.. as many of those who are named Muhammad today and strive due to love for Prophet Muhammad..  neglects and do not follow the reference that was used by him SAW (peace and blessings be upon him).:

“[Our Sibghah (religion) is] the Sibghah (religion) of Allah (Islam) and which Sibgah (religion) can be better that Allah's? And we are His worshipers." (Al-Baqarah 2 : 138)


Death lurks from the back, as well as the front.

Moses and the pious Children of Israel were surrounded and trapped. At their backs were Pharaoh and his army, while at the front was the vast sea. Logically, there's no way out.

"Let's just prepare ourselves for death!"

However, giving up the hope of Allah's blessings is not a characteristic of those who deserve to be helped. Because all the narrow mindedness of this worldly life can never be compared to the Allah's vast powers and ability to provide help.

“And whoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he could never imagine.” (Al-Thalaq: 2-3)

The sea was parted, providing help through a safe avenue which was totally unexpected and unthinkable for Moses and the Children of Israel. Even as humans of a low standing, they were saved and able to continue their journey while the mighty Pharaoh and his army who has managed to be in power and dictate their people for a long time, easily fell defeated, drowned in the sea.. because they are too lowly as compared to Allah All Mighty and All Powerful.

The condition for success is TAQWA (Taqwa = God consciousness - the love and fear that a Muslim feels for Allah. [A person with taqwa desires to be in the good pleasures of Allah and to stay away from those things that would displease Allah. He is careful not to go beyond the bounds and limits set by Allah.]).


Taqwa is not a merely a slogan. It is also not a mode for the Friday prayers Imam to put his congregation to sleep.

Taqwa is the yardstick that Allah will use to measure the qualities of humans. The best of you are those who have the highest form and value of taqwa.

"What is Taqwa?", asked Umar al-Khattab towards Ubai ibn Ka'ab (radhiyallaahu'anhuma).

"Have you ever walked through a path full of thorns?" replied Ubai with a probing question.

"Yes I have," Umar replied.

"What did you do as you walked?" continued Ubai.

"I would slightly lift my thobe and walk slowly and carefully," replied Umar.

"And so, that is TAQWA!" concluded Ubai ibn Ka'ab towards Umar al-Khattab's question regarding TAQWA.

TAQWA is the measure of the quality of humans who have to continuously face a path of various challenges. There will be benefits as well as losses. There will be things that are permissable and non-permissable... a person of Taqwa will consider every single matter in his life as a whole. He will proceed with caution, be smart to control the steps that he will take, and be concerned and not heedless towards any challenges that will come in his way throughout his life. That is TAQWA.

A person of Taqwa is not someone who would live life as he likes.

A striver of Taqwa is not someone who strives as he likes.

They would carefully consider every single law of Allah, things that will lead to success and things that would lead to failure and doom.


The question is, how does the law of Allah work?

"Abide by the Qur'an and Sunnah," as what we all would generally state.

Exactly and it's true.. however, maybe it's not yet clear, complete or even practical.

The guidance of Allah is there in the Qur'an and Sunnah, but that's not the only references where the guidance of Allah exists in this life. There is guidance from the two main texts, and there is guidance from the rules of the universe.

The rules of the texts is termed as Syariatullah.

The rules of the universe is termed as Sunnatullah.


As Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam taught us how to go about leading our daily lives, he often provided a demonstration that would enable a person to encompass the ways of Syariatullah and Sunnatullah.

i. Daily Living

Just observe how slaughtering is performed. We were taught to slaughter in the best manner. And the Sunnah of it can be explained through the practice of saying the Basmalah (Bismillaahirrahmaanirraheem) and the use of a sharp knife. What is the purpose of using a sharp knife?

"So that the chicken would feel less pain!" would be the standard answer for most of us.

"Syariat (Rules of Allah) is provided for the benefit of mankind, not the chicken," I would explain.

The use of a sharp knife will fasten the work of slaughtering. There would be lesser energy used which would contribute to a more productive outcome. Efficiency and effectiveness would increase.. to put it in today's context, our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was teaching us on matters regarding productivity.

Therefore, the quality of a good slaughter is not just through the saying of Basmalah, but also depends on the usage of sharp knife.

ii. Matters of Striving in life

"I am the Messenger of Allah, I am most loved by Allah, Allah have ordained for me to migrate and strive for His religion, Allah will definitely help me..!?"

Has there ever been a moment whereby the Prophet sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam thought that way? Did the Prophet ever perceived that as long as his mission was in Allah's name, for Islam and the truth, that the mission would definitely result in victory, hence he would belittle the importance of planning and strategy?

The answer is... Never once in his life!

For the migration, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) would utilize every available wisdom and would maximize opportunities for success with the consideration of all forms of strategy that it would be the principle reference to what would be named later as THE SCIENCE OF STRATEGY.

The planning and strategy of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was so vast that his companions had to ask, which plan is a revelation from God and which plan is his own professional view?

The revelations from God would be something that is a must to follow and abide by in Syariatullah terms. While in Sunnatullah terms, there is a need for continuous discussions, analysis and work as a whole.

There is no higher or lower preference between meeting the demands of Syariatullah and Sunnatullah.. because both make up the rules of Allah for the welfare of human lives. The textual verses of rules that we are bound to follow and the sciences of the rules of the universe are both to be fully implemented as a whole.


Such an approach towards the question of Syariatullah and Sunnatullah, was not only recorded during the times of Prophetship, whereas it continued to be a yardstick for the perfection of the works of the Ummah in future agendas that followed.

"Constantinople will definitely be freed. The best of leaders is its leader (the one who conquers it) and the best of armies is its army (which conquers it)" [Hakim, 4.422; Bukhari, Tarikh al-Saghir, 139; I. Hanbal, 4.335]

Year 44 of the Hijri calander, Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan (radhiyallaahu'anhu) sent the first delegation of Muslims with the sole purpose of subduing the city of Constantinople. Many of the Prophet's companions participated, including Abu Ayyub al-Ansari and Ibn Abbas himself. They had set out with a strong belief of the possibility of attaining success due to the promise of the Prophet sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam, that the great city of Constantinople along with its pride and arrogance will fall in the hands of Islam, not to be colonized but to be freed from the slavery between their own people.

How was the strength of Constantinople back then? How was the climate there? How was the sociopolitical condition of its residents?

The companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) didn't know. Even so, because they were so convinced with the promise of the Prophet, that there would be a future victory for Islam... they proceeded.

The mission wasn't successful. It didn't mean that it failed, it was just not the time for success. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (radhiallahu'anhu) died a martyr. Even though they were the generation of companions that were under the direct tutelage of Rasooolullaah sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam, still, Allah had not allowed success because there's a big lesson to be learnt that needs to be heeded by the Ummah.

Efforts were then made in the period of Sulaiman bin Abdul Malik, in the era of Harun al-Rashid and was continuously tried agan and again.. even till the era of Sultan Yildirim Beyazit (1389-1403) and Murat II (1421-1451) during the Ottoman era.. the promise of the Prophet was still not yet fulfilled.

Until the rise of the era of the Ottoman Sultanate, when the 7th Sultan titled Sultan Muhammad bin Murad II was crowned. He was a normal human being who has special qualities.

Special in the passion towards the mission of Constantinople.

Special in the possession of a character with a high virtue and vastness in knowledge.

Special in mastering the proficiency of governing and the art of war.

Special towards the practice of Syariatullah and Sunnatullah which was highly valued in the name of TAQWA.

Sultan Muhamamad al-Fatih researched regarding the city of Constantinople from a strategic aspect, political aspect and social aspect. He knew enough about the strengths and weaknesses of the city he was about to subdue, therefore he proceeded in accordance to the information that he had gathered. And even his army was at a similar level of God consciousness and noble attributes that he possessed.

While he was with the thousands of his army, marching towards Constantinople, they had passed by a field of grapes. Sultan Muhammad pretended to fall ill.

"Only grapes would cure my illness," he proclaimed.

However, not even a soldier from his army had grapes with him. The field of grapes that wasn't theirs was not even touched and it was not even brought up as one of the proposed solutions to solve the problem.

"I am fine now!" exclaimed Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih.

It was proven that his army was the best of armies. Sultan Muhammad was 'cured' as he observed the high level of Syariatullah that his army possessed as seen with their TAQWA, as well as them abiding the laws of Sunnatullah.

After the offer for a peaceful resolution was rejected at the last minute, attacks were launched one after another... the battle went on for more than a month until finally, came the moment that was promised by Allah and His messenger.. Constantinople collapsed in the hands of a normal human being who possess certain special qualities... Sultan Muhammad bin Murad II a.k.a. Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih.

A normal human being who's special in some aspects, was able to forge success due to combining the practice of the laws of Syariatullah and Sunnatullah.

The Prophet's (sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam) saying regarding the victory of Islam in the city of Constantinople didn't occur in the hands of his companions. It was obtained in the hands of the best of leaders and army, more than 800 years after that promise was made by the Prophet.

That is the formula for the success of Islam.

Islam was not won only due to its mission being an Islamic mission.

Success happens when there is a completion of the right form of efforts to meet with every single factor that is required for success.

Come on strivers of Islam.. if the goal is to bring victory to Islam, don't give an excuse that the walls of Constantinople are too strong to fall or that the journey is too far. Don't give an excuse that it is too tricky to solve. Success is near, if those who strive completes the conditions of TAQWA. Which is the compliance of Syariatullah and Sunnatullah.

Integrity is important.

Commitment towards the Syari'ah laws while campaigning is important.

What's permissible and not permissible will always be important.

Record efficiency and management is important.

Usage of all forms of communication skills is important.

Technology is important.

Both Islamic Law and Science is important.

That is the formula for the success of Islam.


"The city of Constantinople will be in the hands of this nation!" reminded the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) towards his companions who were tiring in the battle of Khandaq.


That sort of promise is too much.

Why so? The number of residents of Madeenah were small. Furthermore, the Prophet (sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam) and his companions were caught in between life and death, as they were being surrounded by the entire rank of Arab Nationalists who teamed up to form the Coalition army. And suddenly, the Prophet gave a promise that we, who were very small in number as well as in a state of in between life and death, will subdue Constantinople, the biggest city in the world!

Isn't this something impossible?

This is how the Prophet (sallallaahu'alayhi wassalam) motivated his companions.

Believing after seeing something, has no value of faith. It is only a form of attestation towards something that has been produced. This type of belief is a cheap form of belief that has no need for effort and sacrifice.

However, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught his companions to believe before seeing something, and to work hard towards realizing what they believe in.

That is the greatness of the motivation of the mind of a professional Mu'min (pious and righteous believer).

They believe before they see and work hard to see what they believe.

We have never seen Paradise, however, we believe in it. Therefore, work hard to see what we believe.

We have also never seen the success of Islam, furthermore, we are clouded by one failure after another. However, we believe that the future belongs to Islam. Therefore, work hard to see what we believe.

Indeed, victory belongs to Islam.

If all the conditions that lead to it are met.

Last sermon of 'Umar ibn 'Abd Al-'Azeez

Taken from

It is reported that the last sermon ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz – Allâh have mercy on him – delivered was as follows:

He praised Allâh and said, “You were not created in vain, nor will you be left without purpose. Verily, you have an appointed time in which Allâh – the Most High – will come down to judge you.

Wretched and ruined will he be who leaves the mercy of Allâh and is denied a Garden whose width is that of the heavens and Earth.

Know you not that no one will be safe tomorrow save one who is wary of today and fears it; and sells the transitory for what will remain, and the little for the plenty, and fear in exchange for security [in the hereafter]?

See you not that you are in the loins of the dead, to be taken by those who remain after you, until all matters return to the Best of Inheritors?

Every day, [in the funerals] you accompany those returning to Allâh the Mighty and Sublime, having spent their time, until you hide them in a crevice in the ground, in the belly of a bare and unfurnished hole, having parted from their loved ones, stroking the dirt and facing their accounts. Now, they are dependent on their deeds, free of what they left behind, in need of [the deeds] they put before them. 

So fear Allâh before the time He appointed is up and death descends upon you. This is what I have to say.” He then lifted the edge of his garment over his face and wept profusely, and made everyone around him weep.

Abû Bakr Al-Daynûrî, Al-Mujâlasah wa Jawâhir Al-‘Ilm Vol. 3 p343.

Are We in Need of God?

This post is an attempt to translate this article 'Perlukah Manusia Kepada Tuhan?' from with the hope that it may benefit non-Malay readers too..

"If you agree that you need God in this life, only then can I explain why there's a need to perform 'solat' (obligatory prayers). If you agree that you need to pray because you need God in this life, only then would I be able to answer your question on why you have to wear the 'tudung' (Muslim women's head-dress)!"

This is the type of explanation that I often repeat during the programs that I conduct, relating a past experience with two youths who forced me to think hard so as to differentiate between the 'presenting problem' and the 'real problem' at hand.

The 'presenting problem' is that the youth refuses to don the head-dress, refuses to pray, wants to adopt a pet dog at home and hates a particular Islamic Affairs Department in a certain state for detaining popular artistes at 'The Zouk', a discotheque located at Jalan Ampang.

However, the bigger problem is the inability for the youths to realize whether they need God in their lives. Therefore, do religion still have relevance in the remainder of this life, known as the end of times?

If the question "Is there a need for God?" is not solved, then no matter what we do, such as reprimanding a Muslim who refuses to pray, will fall on deaf ears. What are we asking him to pray for? To pray to Who?

If this matter is not solved, then all the attempt to advise regarding matters such as donning the head-dress, covering the 'awrah' (obligatory parts to be covered for a Muslim women), dressing modestly and so on, is an assimilation to the noise that a 'modified exhaust pipe' of a motorcycle, passing through the neighborhood, produces. It is a nuisance to the public and irks the ears.

The biggest challenge for me as a 'da'ie' (caller to Islam), is to encourage humans to think, whether they need God in their lives. This is the most important question that must be solved, before other religious matters are to be presented.

At least Sheikh Abu Bakar Jabir al-Jaza’iri had written a book entitled 'Aqidah al-Mu'min' (The Belief of a True Muslim) beginning with the topic, "The need of Humans for Belief (Faith)". The question of why humans need religion in their lives is placed first and foremost before other aspects of religion are brought forward for discussion.

However, how much does one need to explain, in order to solve this question, as exemplified by Sheikh Abu Bakar Jabir al-Jaza'iri, before we simply claim in a cliche, "Faith is the Solution!"

This is the issue at hand, that forced me to re-look on such fundamental questions, because I'm truly disturbed with the reality that humans have lost their relationship with God. If, for example, humans are living in a period of hardship, and we suggest to them to have faith in God in order to find strength, it would be an easier task.

However, in the context of the contented lives that many currently experience, where almost everything is affordable and readily available, what of God and the Day of Judgement?.. Are they still relevant?


I'd like to quote a part of the experiences of Rene Descarte (1596 - 1650) in his efforts to build upon the basis of the truth. Educated at 'Jesuit School La Flêche', he ended his study with the most important question, "Is what I'm studying all this while the truth?"

How refreshing it is, the feeling of abandoning all the knowledge that have been gathered, recorded onto a roll of certificate, then to rebuild one's belief on one's own choice, and not on knowledge which is being forced fed, or traditional knowledge passed down throughout generations and also indoctrination which is tiring and blinding?

Hence, he started questioning everything that he had learnt all the while, doubting everything until finally, Descarte came to a basis that is the strongest, which is impossible for him to have any doubts about it... which is the reality of himself!

He's unable to doubt himself because he feels that he himself is a reality, not an illusion. He's able to ensure that his own self is a reality, as he did something which is important which is TO THINK.

Thinking makes his own self a reality, unlike dreaming. Thinking is far from illusion. And it resulted, in his own words, the well known phrase:

Dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum!
"I doubted, therefore I think, therefore I am!"

That was how Descarte found the truth for himself. Truly rational, embarking on a journey of knowing  oneself. Thinking and finding oneself.


The road to build upon one's faith have to be built on one's effort to know oneself. That is the basis that our religion teaches:

"Whoever knows oneself, will know his God"

Knowing God through knowing Oneself...

That is the key for humans to return to, bridging their ties with God. Which is the result of the ability to know oneself. The question is, what are the aspects that one must find in oneself?

People who explore their personal selves, will come to two realities. Each and every human being, have strengths and weaknesses. The knowledge of one's strengths and weaknesses will be the factors that will lead to a person discovering and knowing himself.

People who realize that their lives must have a goal will force themselves to find a potential. All this, is on the basis of belief that there is not one person who is born stupid, however, every human is born with different forms of intellect.

What makes a person dull are certain things that surround him. It could be his parents, even his teacher and the school itself. Schools shouldn't be producing students who are either clever or dull. However, schools should produce students of different forms of intellect. The job of the education system is to discover the greater potential in every student, and not to filter out students who do not conform to the general standard of intellect.

However, a person will not be able to discover his potential if he lives meagerly. Work meagerly. Think meagerly.

To achieve something wholeheartedly will enable a person to quicken the use all his strength and potential. Once all the strengths of oneself is recognized and maximized, only then will he cross his limits and discover his weaknesses.

This is the way a scientist meets God. To him, science is not just about discovering opportunities, but the mutual agreement towards the limits of the left and right. Those limits are not due to the known and seen universe, but from a being that is too small and weak to fathom.

This is what happens when discovering space, it results in a conclusion that humans and science, are too weak and small to provide answers to life's biggest questions. Most of what we understand about space and beyond, are estimated data and far from the results of experience. Data which proves the perfection of the universe and the weakness of their occupants called human beings.

Scientists become humans who are weak and limited, facing the perfection of a proven system, the perfectness of God.


Allah has provided humans with an added ability for us to define our own goals.

Allah has bestowed upon humans weaknesses for us to find Him.

Humans cannot afford to remain sated. He will be hungry. And that hunger is what will drive himself to find food. And as a result of food, his weakness will be sustained. For a while.

Humans cannot afford to stay fresh at all times. He will be tired and sleepy. Without any form of aid, that tiredness and sleepiness is what will drive him to search for a period of rest. And as a result of rest, humans regain their strength. For a moment.

That is the physical weakness of humans. Without a need to be taught, that weakness drives humans towards a source of strength to sustain it. A weakness in the form of hunger will drive him to search for strength through food. A weakness in the form of tiredness and sleepiness will drive him to search for strength through rest and sleep.

The weaknesses and limits bound to a human is not only through the physiology of oneself, but also through the soul and emotions.. spiritually and mentally.

Without a need to be taught, humans who are oppressed and tortured, will find their souls yearning for justice. The yearning of the tortured souls in the search for justice, is a way for him to meet God. It is where Allah introduces Himself as THE MOST JUST (AL-'ADL).

Without a need to be taught, humans who are disturbed and fearful, will find their souls yearning for peace and safety. The yearning of the souls which are living in disturbance and fear, is a way for him to meet God. It is where Allah introduces Himself as THE SOURCE OF PEACE (AS-SALAM) and THE GIVER OF TRANQUILITY (AL-MU'MIN)

It is for these reasons Allah Almighty introduces Himself with 99 names, so that each and every human being returns to Him through a source of STRENGTH, whenever they are troubled with WEAKNESS.


Human beings will only search for God, once they recognize the weakness of oneself.

One's weakness will not be known if one does not strive to optimize one's abilities. That form of striving will not exist if human beings are lazy and have a meager outlook on life.

Hence, the heaviest sentence that is given in this world, to the worst of crimes... when human beings LIVE NEGLIGENTLY AND ARE LAZY TO THINK.

Laziness is a SIN because it holds back a person from the obligation of knowing oneself and knowing God.

It is these types of human beings who thinks as if they themselves are god...

"Have you seen him who takes his own lust (vain desires) as his ilaah (god)? And Allaah knowing (him as such), left him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart, and put a cover on his sight. Who then, will guide him after Allaah? Will you not then remember?" [Al-Jathiyah 45:23]

While in reality, he is more heedless than a cattle...

"And surely, We have created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have their hearts wherewith they understand not, and they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those! They are the heedless ones." [Al-A'raf 7:179]

Both of the verses above, is regarding the lives of human beings who act like they are gods, and also live like animals due to a mind, eyes, ears and a heart which doesn't function. Both are due to the reluctance to think and to observe life. They are given a mind, with eyes and ears to see and to listen with their hearts... but the hustle and bustle of the worldly life lead them to forget who they really are and who is HE.

Therefore, it is justified that these type of negligent human beings are punished by God due to their own laziness in searching for the truth.

Think about it...
