The Details of the Question

Do the disabled have any fault since they are created so?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Allah is the possessor of the property. He (SWT) disposes of His property as He wishes. No one can object to His actions and interfere in His creation. Allah (SWT) creates the cells of man, arranges the place of his organs, and bestows upon him a humane entity. Man has not given anything to Allah, Who has given all these bounties; so he cannot claim any rights from Allah.

If man had given something to Allah (SWT) in return for what has been given to him, he would have had a right to object by saying, “Give me two eyes, not one!”, “give me two hands, not one!” or “Why did you not give me two feet but only one?” Injustice arises from an unreturned right. What right does man have in Allah (SWT) so that he might be inflicted injustice because it has not been satisfied?

Sometimes Allah Almighty gives a person many things in the hereafter in return for removing his foot. By removing his foot, He (SWT) makes His servant feel his impotence and weakness. If He lets the feelings of His servant develop towards him, He will have given many things to him by removing something very small from him. It means this is actually, though not apparently, the grace of Allah (SWT) to His servant.

In the same way, Allah Almighty sends a person to Paradise when he is martyred for the sake of Him...A person becomes a martyr in the battlefield whereby he rises to a position, which godly people long for. Upon seeing him, others wish Allah Almighty had made it possible for them to be martyrs. Such a person loses nothing even if he is smashed into pieces for the thing he receives is far greater than his apparent loss.

Even if some people consider this situation inappropriate, having vexation, resentment and with a hostile attitude towards Allah (SWT), these kinds of defects have attracted the affection of Allah (SWT). The objections of some rebellious and ungrateful people in this respect are unfair and improper.
