Safely back to my hometown Alhamdulillah.
During my pilgrimage to holy city of Mecca to perform the Umrah, I had the opportunity for much reflections:
For one thing I am grateful for the faith in Islam.
I am grateful realising God’s mercy is available to us who have faith and hope in Him especially when making prayer in sincerity, calling to His forgiveness. There were tremendous feeling of humbleness witnessing hundred of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world, of all colours and races, regardless of social status or wealth, were all to turn to Allah for forgiveness sincerely hoping their sins were forgiven by Allah and among those who were protected from the hellfire.
ربنا آتنا في الدنيا حسنة وفي الآخرة حسنة وقنا عذاب النار
“Rabbana aatina fi’l-dunya hasanah wa fi’l-aakhirah hasanah wa qina ‘adhaab al-naar”
Our Lord, give us that which is good in this world and that which is good in the Hereafter, and protect us from the torment of the Fire
This all makes perfect sense to me.
Why the need of god who condemn humanity to “original sin” which then could only be forgiven by him demanding that he die?? How can a god can die in the first place?
It is totally illogical to me how can god self controlled his suicide which is clearly faking his own death by exiting his own punishment for the purpose of shedding a “divine” blood in order to forgive people from their sins?
I know that God can just forgive those individual who sincerely repent from a guilty heart and I endeavour all my life to ask for His forgiveness.
Thanks God for this faith.
