Why the Merciful Allah does not intervene?

Like many other previous years (Muslims died in stampede: 402 in 1987, 1426 in 1990, 270 in 1994, 340 in 1997, 118 in 1998, 14 in 2003, 35 in 2001, 251 in 2004), this year during hajj some 363 pilgrims got killed and more than 1500 have been injured by stampede at the “Stoning Satan” ritual of the final day of Hajj. In addition to this more than 76 people also died in hotel collapsing incident in Mecca. These believers of Allah (Mumeen Mussalmans) went to Mecca (House of Allah) only to appease Allah and they were pelting stone to a concrete wall (they call it Satan) to appease Allah. God/Allah of Muslims should be very happy that His believers went to near His own home to worship Him. Even the blood thirsty cruelest human being would not harm his guests when they are in his own house. Now, these stupid believers of Allah were not only Allah’s  guests, but they were His devout slaves went to His house for His mercy and to appease him by their extreme piety and penance, so that they can get a place in Islamic heaven.

Now could anybody tell me why on earth the so called merciful Allah could allow such dangerous stampede to happen in the first place? Why He Himself (as all Muslims do believe that only Allah can take his life) killed all those slaves or guests of Him? Is it possible that actually this stampede killing was orchestrated by the great powerful Satan himself? Because of their pelting rains over his body the Satan got angry and killed those stupid human believers of Allah, and Allah virtually could not protect his slaves. Because Allah is actually less powerful than Satan! This logic fits better to this incident, isn’t it? Historically, when devout Muslims (slaves of Allah) arrive in front of Allah’s decorated home on earth—always some slaves get killed either by stampede, or by fire, or by bomb blast, or by hotel collapsing etc. Was not Allah the Merciful, all knowing, almighty and compassionate? Then how come He can not really intervene to almost anything in the whole world? What kind of dumb and heartless deity is He?

Allah/God/Baghban/Jehovah—none of them can ever intervene to anything in this earth. Here are some recent terrible incidents (where Allah/God could do absolutely nothing) which are lighting our painful memories with great pains:

  1. Where was the all powerful and merciful God when these Arab terrorists flew their aircraft and crashed them into the WTC and Pentagon building killing more than 3000 innocent humans?

  2. Earthquake in Bagram, Iran (6.7 Richter scale in, 2004) killed more than 50,000 humans when they were in their sleep during night—where was this Merciful Allah?

  3. Earthquake in Los Angeles (6.7 Richter scale, 2004) of same strength killing only 2 humans—why this utter partiality of God?

  4. Earthquake in Pakistan (8.5 Richter scale, 2005) killed hundred thousands poor but pure (pukka) Muslims. Where was the merciful Allah at that time?

  5. Tsunami in the Indian ocean killing more than 250 thousand mostly poor, destitute, innocent human beings; amongst which almost two hundred thousands were Muslims (Allah’s favorite slaves)—why Allah did not save them?

  6. Devastating Cyclone Katrina in the Gulp of Mexico destroying many cities and towns in the American south—again died a few hundreds poor Americans—why Allah did not save them? Same type of disastrous cyclone would kill in millions in the third world countries. Why this partiality?

  7. In 2005, when Golam Mostafa alias Tula Mian (a madrassha educated mullah in Bangladesh) put his seven-month old child Solaiman to sword in the delusion of performing a religious duty of Qurbani 'directed by a voice heard in dream—Why Allah did not come to intervene at all?

  8. 12 miners died in W. Virginia Sago mine. God sent thunderstorm which caused the underground explosion blocking the path through which those underground miners were receiving oxygen supply. They were dying of carbon monoxide poisoning. Thousands of Christian devotees were in church praying to Almighty, compassionate God for their safety. But God did not heed them at all. Human rescuers went down (risking their lives) in the tunnel to save those stranded miners. Relatives and friends of those stranded miners were busy praying to God for their safety. When news came (erroneous of course) that 12 miners were alive—Christian devotees were cheering, yelling and thanking God for His mercy, “Miracle, Miracle, Praise to lord God has given 12 miracles”.  They were not at all thanking those poor rescuers who risked their lives to save the miners.

Next moment when news was changed to just one survival—devotees started blaming those mine rescuers and management etc, but never blamed God at all. Then these poor people were chanting God has given one miracle— thanks God. Actually the guy who survived was almost dead and without modern medical miracle (created by human and not by God) this miner would have died immediately. He survived because he was the youngest and perhaps poisonous gas concentration was less in his area, or his capacity to withstand poison gas was more than others. No damn miracle worked there. Yet human will thank God for his safety, and will blame rescuers for the killing of those 12 miners. For those survived they thanked God but those who are dead they blamed human rescuers! What a hypocrisy?

The fact of the matter is—God never could interfere to any of the dreadful acts of human beings nor could he ever interfere with any such natural devastation like cyclone, hurricane, earthquake, flood, etc. He never did interfere when millions of human beings were gassed to death by Hitler or when thousands of people were drowned with the sinking Titanic. Similarly, God never did intervene when hundreds of man, women, and children were perished when an Egyptian Aircraft went down in the icy water of Atlantic Ocean in 2002! The historical truth is that God never could interfere—when millions of human beings were perished by deadly diseases before the discovery of medicine by humans. He never could interfere when one fourth of the world populations were perished by bubonic plague!!! These are all documented cases. Bubonic plague used to scare the ancient folks all over the world. Similarly, small pox (Guti Bosonto) and cholera (Ola Utha) used to dread our grandfather’s and father’s generation (as the Allah’s Gazab) in the early twentieth century. It was the discovery of antibiotics and other medicines that conquered these pestilences. The God, who may have been too powerful and too merciful at one time, had nothing to do with the eradication of these deadly diseases. And these are cold facts of the progress of human civilization.

If one analyzes all the facts and figures of the growth of human civilization in a cool head, one will find out quite easily that our God, Allah, or Baghaban was never omnipotent, omniscient, all mighty or Merciful!!! May be He never did exist in reality. Only He exists in the human imagination! May be, we the humans actually created Him and gave him all those mouthful adjectives only to make Him a big thing worthy of worshipping! May be, Allah, God or Baghaban is completely a deaf and dumb and blind entity! He never sees anything, feels anything, hears anything, knows anything or does anything by Himself! He never did talk with any Prophet, nor had He revealed Himself to anybody! And that’s why all of our questions will remain unanswered forever. May be, we the humans shall have to find the answer of those intelligent questions about Qurbani or questions about the madness of Satan Stoning Rituals of poor Muslims. We the humans should discover the way to love each other. We the humans should stop these mockery of worshipping God by sacrificing (Qurbani) other’s precious life for our own penance. Only then, could there be any justice and lasting peace on earth.
