The Path of Jihad

Have you ever wondered why there are lots of sufferings and pain that we witness and experience in this world? Can you think of one particular distressing event in your life or in someone's life that led you to question why is this thing happening? Could Allah decree it to happen?

Though Allah knows everything and plans things to happen according to His will, yet we need to discover from His Holy Books whether the evil that we see happening in this world is part of His good purpose for those who do good. It is not enough that we resign to our fate or accept passively in mind that our Most Merciful and Most Benevolent Allah decrees what happened, what is happening, and what will happen. We need to find out what is really His beautiful plan for us. Let's study Allah's design and purpose for creating this world. In the light of His inspired revelation, we can also find the answers to a number of events that have had occurred in our lives as well as in the lives of our significant others.

Allah created Lucifer a perfect jinn, endowed with beauty and intelligence. But pride came into his heart. He did not want to prostrate himself to Adam, for the latter was created from clay unlike him who was made from fire. Lucifer aimed to be like the Most High. In his rebellion against Allah, Satan and his followers were expelled from heaven. They were cast out into the earth.
