I will not pray till you answer my questions!
A story about a young man went to foreign country to study for few years and then he went back to his original country. His family was thrilled by his returning and makes a special reception for him. However, when a prayer time came,, he refused to go to pray with them in nearby mosque and said: I won't pray with you unless one of your great sheiks come to answer my 3 questions first!
So, one of his family members brought a good scholar.
The scholar said to that young man: what are your questions?
The young man replied: and do you think you can answer my questions while many people before you couldn't?!!
The scholar said: let's try and God help us!
The young man replied: my 3 questions are:
1- Is God really existing?! If he does, show me his form.
2- What is Divine Fate or Decree?
3- if Satan is made with fire, so how he will be tortured in hell and fire will not hurt him anyway?!
So, When the young man said what he has,, the scholar slapped him toughly on his face that made him burn with pain!!
The young man got mad and said: why did you do that?! You couldn’t find an answer!!
The scholar replied: I did, and my answer is with this SLAP!
The young man said: I don't get it!
The scholar replied: what do you feel after I slapped you!
The young man said: horrible pain!!!!
The scholar replied: so, you think that pain existing!
The young man said: SURE!! I'm still feeling it!!
The scholar replied: Then, can you show me this pain and its form?!
The young man said: I can't!!!!
The scholar replied: so, this is my answer toward your first question. We feel that God existing with his marks, signs, …etc,,, even though we can't see him!
The scholar added then: did you dream that someone will slap you on your face?!
The young man said: NO!!
The scholar added: did anyone tell you that I will slap you today or have you got any knowledge about this before?!!
The young man said: NO!!!!
The scholar replied: this is the Divine Fate,,, we don't know what will happen before it happens!
The scholar added: my hand that slapped you now, can you tell me which material that made of,,, the origin material?!
The young man said: Clay!!
The scholar added: and your face?!
The young man said: Clay too!!!
The scholar replied: and what did you feel after I slapped you?!
The young man said: Real Pain!!!
The scholar replied: Exactly,,, that goes with Satan as well! God made him with Fire,, and Fire in Hell will be real pain and real torture for him too.
After that, The young man convinced and went to pray with that scholar,, and became good Muslim.
My brother told me this story when he heard it for first time in a religious program. Then, I found this story this week in a newspaper and I decided to translate it for you because it's really worthy!
