In this video session we discuss the ever confusing question: If Allah loves unconditionally, then why does he punish? If a person commits a sin, does that mean Allah hates him/her? And what if someone commits a sin and feels bad, how can they get forgiveness? Understanding Allah’s system and how it works is as important, if not more, as understanding laws of physics, gravity, etc. Just like learning basic laws of nature help us to avoid harm, accidents, etc., similarly, understanding Allah's system will allow us to lead balanced and peaceful lives while helping our afterlives as well. We must learn to connect with our Lord in love and devotion. Without His love, we are doomed and religion becomes very scary. It is the reason why sadly we are losing our youth who are turning away from Islam.
