Three Tough Questions 1-2-3

There was a young man who went overseas to study for quite a long
time. When he returned, he asked his parents to find him a religious
scholar or any expert who could answer his Three Questions.
Finally, his parents were able to find a Muslim scholar.

"Who are you? Can you answer my questions?," asked the young man

"I am one of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala)'s slaves and Insha'Allah

(God willing), I will be able to answer your questions," replied the

"Are you sure? A lot of Professors and experts were not able to
answer my questions," replied the young boy

"I will try my best, with the help of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala)"
"I have 3 questions," began the boy

1. Does God exist? If so, show me His shape.

2. What is takdir (fate)?

3. If shaitan (Devil) was created from the fire, why at the end he
will be thrown to hell that is also created from fire. It certainly will
not hurt him at all, since Shaitan (Devil) and the hell were created
from fire. Did God not think of it this far?

will be slapped by me?," the ascholar replied

"Did you ever think that you will get a slap from me, today?," the
scholar continued


"That is takdir (fate)........" The scholar continued, "My hand that

I used to slap you, what is it created from?"

"It is created from flesh," replied the young man

"How about your face, what is it created from?"

"Flesh, as well" replied the young man

"How did you feel after I slapped you?"

"In pain."
"Even though Shaitan (satan) and Jahannam (Hell-fire) were created
from fire, if Allah wants, insha'Allah (God willing), the Hell-fire will
become a very painful place for Shaitan (Devil)" ended the wise

The wise Scholar had answered all three of the tough questions by
one slap...
