02 – If God exists, then why doesn’t He show Himself to us? Why? Sincere Questions, Sincere Answers – Shaykh Hamza Karamali

We often wonder, “Why?”–Why does God want us to worship Him? Why does He send people to the Hellfire? Why can’t Muslims eat pork? Why is life so miserable? Why did the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) fight so many wars?
In this series of lessons, Shaykh Hamza Karamali teaches us the etiquette of asking such questions, carefully analyzes what exactly each question means, highlights common logical fallacies, and then shows us how God answers these questions in the Qur’an.

This is the second episode of the series, “Why? Sincere Questions. Sincere Answers.” Questions like this come to our minds because we hear them posed by the “New Atheists”, who want to sow doubts in the minds of religious believers. He begins by explaining why such questions are incompatible with our slavehood to God, and then goes on to unpack and refute the logical argument that lies hidden behind this question.
