The Law of Karma
The word “karma” is a Sanskrit term, which literally means “action” or “deed” and this explains something important about the way it works - it is determined by our own actions. To put it simply, whatever you do, good or bad, will eventually come back to you.
You’ve likely heard of this concept before. The term “karma” and its relative term “reincarnation” are almost exclusively associated with Eastern religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism. But did you know that these ideas are also present in the teachings of Islam?
This documentary explores the concept of karma, journey of the soul, and reveals hidden connections between world religions.
Thinking about the Ultimate Justice of Allah is proof enough
Brother Abu Abbas asked the Imam: "How will we be sure that there is Allah?"
The answer from Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan was read on Paltalk on the 4th of May 2016 in English and Arabic:
"May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you
Tell him to think only about one thing and certitude will come back to him, if he uses it correctly.
To think only about the justice of the creator.
Who is the one who brings this justice when for example someone mistreats his parents or one of the parents, who is the one who returns this act of mistreatment against the parents?
Who brings this justice?
You mistreat your parents for example and the creator responds to you with the same action of yours.
Or a person fornicates or transgresses against the honor of people, the creator returns this act and someone comes who transgresses in turn against this persons' honor and so on. This is for the purpose of giving you an example.
In the name of Allah The Most Merciful The Intensely Merciful
"The fornicator does not marry except a [female] fornicator or polytheist, and none marries her except a fornicator or a polytheist, and that has been made unlawful to the believers." (Al Noor verse 3)
Fornication is a debt on you and it is repaid from your household
How can this be without a leader? Or a ruler?
Does nature for example bring forth this justice?
Justice is the Just and he is Allah —there is no god except Him— the Living One, the All-sustainer.
This is enough for every fair truth seeker.
Let him think about this justice and he will know that there is a creator.
The one who mistreats his parents and the fornicator – and we seek refuge from Allah
As you judge, you shall be judged."
