Salaam Alaykum Please review the links provided below. Please feel free to refer any additional or specific questions to the 'Aalim Network wa salaam, Mustafa F Acting Moderator, 'Aalim Network _____________________________________________________________________ QUESTION: Asalaam Alaykum Recently I was having a discussion with a Sunni brother about the Shia belief of 'Adl which is according the Shaykh Kashif ul-Ghita that "God the Almighty is not unjust to anybody, nor does He commit any action which could be considered bad by man's primordial sense." Does this mean that Allah (SWT) is compelled to do justice which is in accordance with man's primordial sense? Or does Allah (SWT) do justice as He pleases, even if it may be different from man's definition of justice? The Sunni brother told me that they don't believe in that definition of 'Adl and since 'Adl is an essential belief for a Muslim, does this make them kafir? ---- ANSWER: [Moderator's Note: Both articles were obtained from www.al-islam.org] <<Al-Adl.html>> <<divine justice.html>> Attachment Converted: "c:\program files\eudora\attach\Al-Adl1.htm" Attachment Converted: "c:\program files\eudora\attach\divine justice1.htm"
