Divine Punishments - a Beginning of Good

From Ahmed Al-Hassan Wiki

Sculpture-2481969 1920.jpg

There is no cold - only absence of warmth. There is no darkness - only the absence of light. And in the era we live in we get to experience that darkness. We live in what is prophesied as the "End Times".

One might ask, why does God punish creation for their wrongdoings? Is there no other way to help them to become right? The thing is that the creation is free to do right or wrong - and most of creation these days chooses not to use and reflect the light that God constantly shines on us, but rather turns a cold shoulder.

Everything is darkest before the dawn, and most of humanity needs to experience the bitterness of their deeds when they are falling back on them before there is change. The surprising thing is that God does not even expect from creation that it worships him alone, but rather only requires from us a little humanity - a little love at least towards each other. But instead of that most people have allowed their hearts to harden, and allowed kindness and love to wither away, the mainstream has gotten completely rid of the idea of a divinely appointed ruler, they have handed power over to the most wicked, and allowed them to oppress the weakest, or oppressed fellow human beings themselves.

So when evil and inhumane acts of oppression of the weakest reach a peak - an apocalypse, a doomsday, a divine punishment happens. Thereby the Allmercyful allows even those who have forgotten Him to wake up and turn back to Him, and does away with the most wicked, clearing the way for a new beginning of justice, peace, brotherly love, and all which is good...

4 riders prophecy.jpeg

Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

And it shall be that when they say to you, ‘Where should we go?’ then you are to tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord:Those destined for death, to death;
And those destined for the sword, to the sword;
And those destined for famine, to famine;
And those destined for captivity, to captivity.”’

I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

“I will surely snatch them away,” declares the Lord;
“There will be no grapes on the vine
And no figs on the fig tree,
And the leaf will wither;
And what I have given them will pass away.”’”

and they that dwell on the earth, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, shall wonder when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, "Come and see." And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come and see." Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine." When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth

Warnings in Islam coming true today

And in a book of Islamic narrations we read: "Before the appearance of the Mahdi, there must be 2 plagues - the white plague and the red plague." - Bihar Al-Anwar

Without a doubt the Coronavirus is a sign from God leading the way to the Revolution of Imam Mahdi.

The question is what comes after the Coronavirus?

In the Quran it states: {we shall certainly make them taste a nearer toment, prior to the greater torment, so that perhaps they may return} 32:21

And Ahmed Murad (as), one eof the 12 men said:
"For the first time in history, the seller pays the buyer.
#coronavirus, one of the smallest creatures of God, has humiliated your pride.
O People, I still tell you the next is greater and more destructive."

Do not grieve - have faith

A man once came to Ali ibn abi Talib as and said: "I have come to you my master and I am full of grief and sadness and don't know what to do. Help me."
Ali as said "I would like to ask you a question. Did you come into this world with all of this grief?"
The man replied "No"
Ali as said "and are you going to leave this world carrying it with you?"
The man replied "No"
So Ali as said "A matter which didn't come with you nor will you leave with it shouldn't cause so much grief... be patient upon the matters of the dunya... and focus your attention on the kingdoms of the heavens rather than focusing your attention on this dunya and what you want shall be...
For your sustenance has already been divided...
And your destiny established...
And the matters which happen in the world is not worth grief...
Because it is between the hands of the living one...
A person is living in between two matters... an easy moment and a hard moment... and both are a blessing if he only had faith...!"

And in the Quran Prophet Jacob says:
{do not despair of relief from Allah; surely none despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people} - Quran Surah Yusef 12:87

God wants gratitude from the believer

Lady Norhan (as) wife of Aba Sadiq (as) said:

Punishment grateful.jpg

"Overnight, our lives have changed. What was previously considered normal, or even boring, is now for many people to look forward to doing happily again. People began to realize that they are not as immune as they thought, and that they do not control their fate as they wanted.
At times like this, it's easy for people to get depressed and depressed about the present and the future.
Do you know what could change the situation for them? Thanks. Thanks to God who is the first control and the other in their fate.
What we are facing now is no worse than Jesus was facing. Here is Jesus, during the last dinner, knows that he is about to be betrayed by one of his closest friends, he is fully aware that he is minutes away from being arrested and tortured by the soldiers of the tyrant. However, he managed to find something to be thankful for. " and he took bread and thanks..."-Luke 22
Thanks in hard times is not only useful, it is necessary.
Thanks leads to satisfaction, satisfaction leads to serenity no matter the circumstances good or bad.
Ingratitude or lack of thanks leads to despair, and despair leads to depression - also no matter the circumstances good or bad.

It's easy to sit and calculate all the things that are going not in our lives. But do you know what's easier? Thank God for all the blessings that he has given us {and if you prepare the grace of God do not bless it}.
Sit back and thank god for all the positive things in your life.
Allah swt said in the holy Qur'an, {If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.}
However, we need to know that there is no guarantee that if you are on a little bit of your food, you will have more food. There is no guarantee that if you are thankful on your little money you will become more rich. There is no guarantee that if you are healthy, you will not get sick. Then it's not that if you're thankful to God, everything in your life will be fine. The point is that if you are thankful to God, God will be enough for you no matter what.

This is an honorable degree of faith. This is satisfaction. This is the serenity in times of distress. This is what made Jesus be able to find what to thank god for during the last dinner. This is "what I saw only beautiful" that zainab a saw in karbala. This is " if you don't have anger, I don't care said by Muhammad r when they threw stones without mercy until he bleed.
He - God - was enough for them no matter what.
And my answer to those who knew before their time - Imam Ahmed Hassan a - in these difficult times we are going through, because it is enough for them no matter what." - fb-post, 12.04.2020
