Pleasure and Wrath of the God

Assalaamu'alaikum wa rahmatullah

I learned that it is not cute to have such a long title. I tried to make the title simple but catchy. I think that it is an art itself, haha. I am trying to continue the discussion of Abdullah al-Hadad in his letter to fellow brethren.

The God the Highest through His will has put on His pleasure in the obedience towards Him and His wrath is in disobedience towards Him. He promises paradise for those obedient servants but threatening those who disobey with "bitterness" in this life and so on due to His infinite fairness and wisdom. 


These are the limits of the God the Highest, and whosoever obeys the God the Highest and His messenger will be admitted to the gardens which rivers flow, to abide therein, and that will be the great success (Surah al-Nisaa' 4:13).

"And whoever disobeys the God the Highest and His messenger, and transgresses His limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall have a disgraceful torment" (Surah al-Nisaa' 4:14).

The God the Highest commanded His believing servants to compete in reaching the "forgiveness" and getting the "paradise" besides protecting themselves and their family from the "torments of hell" through obedience to His commandments but avoiding His prohibitions.

"And march forth in the way which leads to forgiveness from your Lord, and for paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for the pious ones" (Surah Ali-'Imran 3:133). 

"O those who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are appointed angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey the God in what He commands them but do what they are commanded" (Surah al-Tahrim 66:6).

Sealed with prayers for mercy, peace and love, amin!
