believe in Allah

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST
EXPLANATIONS OF WHY ALLAH ALLOWS PAIN
AND SUFFERING THAT I HAVE SEEN: A MAN
WENT TO A BARBERSHOP TO HAVE HIS HAIR
CUT AND HIS BEARD TRIMMED. AS THE
BARBER BEGAN TO WORK, THEY BEGAN TO
HAVE A GOOD CONVERSATION. THEY TALKED
ABOUT SO MANY THINGS AND VARIOUS
SUBJECTS. WHEN THEY EVENTUALLY
TOUCHED ON THE SUBJECT OF ALLAH, THE
BARBER SAID: "I DON'T BELIEVE THAT ALLAH
EXISTS." "WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?" ASKED
THE CUSTOMER. "WELL, YOU JUST HAVE TO
GO OUT IN THE STREET TO REALIZE THAT
ALLAH DOESN'T EXIST. TELL ME, IF ALLAH
EXISTS, WOULD THERE BE SO MANY SICK
PEOPLE? WOULD THERE BE ABANDONED
CHILDREN? IF ALLAH EXISTED, THERE WOULD
BE NEITHER SUFFERING NOR PAIN. I CAN'T
IMAGINE A LOVING ALLAH WHO WOULD
ALLOW ALL OF THESE THINGS."

THE CUSTOMER THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT,
BUT DIDN'T RESPOND BECAUSE HE DIDN'T
WANT TO START AN ARGUMENT. THE BARBER
FINISHED HIS JOB AND THE CUSTOMER LEFT
THE SHOP. JUST AFTER HE LEFT THE
BARBERSHOP, HE SAW A MAN IN THE
STREET WITH LONG, STRINGY, DIRTY HAIR
AND AN UNTRIMMED BEARD. HE LOOKED
DIRTY AND UNKEMPT. THE CUSTOMER
TURNED BACK AND ENTERED THE BARBER
SHOP AGAIN AND HE SAID TO THE
BARBER: "YOU KNOW WHAT? BARBERS DO
NOT EXIST." "HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?"
ASKED THE SURPRISED BARBER. "I AM HERE,
AND I AM A BARBER. AND I JUST WORKED ON
YOU!" "NO!" THE CUSTOMER
EXCLAIMED. "BARBERS DON'T EXIST
BECAUSE IF THEY DID, THERE WOULD BE NO
PEOPLE WITH DIRTY LONG HAIR AND
UNTRIMMED BEARDS, LIKE THAT MAN
OUTSIDE." "AH, BUT BARBERS DO EXIST!
THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE DO
NOT COME TO ME." "EXACTLY!" AFFIRMED
THE CUSTOMER. "THAT'S THE POINT! ALLAH,
TOO, DOES EXIST! THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS
WHEN PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO HIM AND DON'T
LOOK TO HIM FOR HELP. THAT'S WHY
THERE'S SO MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING IN
THE WORLD."
