No doubt, there are various types of unpleasant events happening in the world. As a result of natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanoes, floods and so forth, hundreds of people die every year. A variety of diseases, calamities, plagues, droughts etc. kill many human beings as well as animals and plants. Many children are born every day with diseases that will cause lifelong suffering. Many criminals are freely committing multitudes of crimes without anyone stopping them. Millions of innocent people were killed during the 1st and the 2nd World Wars, as they are still being killed in different parts of the world.
The question now is, ‘How can the knowledgeable and Merciful God let all these disasters happen? Given all these and many as such catastrophes of life, how can we assert that God is Just?!’
