3 Questions?

There was a young man who went overseas to study for quite a
long time. When he returned, he asked his parents to find him a religious
scholar or any expert who could answer his 3 questions. Finally, his parents
were able to find a Muslim scholar.

Young man: Who are you? Can you answer my questions?
Scholar: I am one of Allah (SubHana Wa Ta`ala)'s slaves and
insha-Allah (God willing), I will be able to answer your questions.
Young man: Are you sure? A lot of Professors and experts were
not able to answer my questions.
Scholar: I will try my best, with the help of Allah (SubHana Wa Ta`ala).

Young Man: I have 3 questions:
1. Does God exist? If so, show me His shape.
2. What is takdir (fate)?
3. If Shaitan (Devil) was created from the fire, why at the end
he will be thrown to hell that also created from fire. It certainly will
not hurt him at all, since Shaitan (Devil) and the hell were created from
fire. Did God not think of it this far
suddenly; the Scholar slapped the young man's face very hard.
Young Man (feeling pain): Why do you get angry at me?
Scholar: I am not angry. The slap is my answer to your three
Young Man: I really don't understand.
Scholar: How do you feel after I slapped you?
Young Man: Of course, I felt the pain.
Scholar: So do you believe that pain exists?
Young Man: Yes.
Scholar: Show me the shape of the pain!
Young Man: I cannot.
Scholar: That is my first answer. All of us feel God's existence
without being able to see His shape.
Scholar: Last night, did you dream that you will be slapped by
Young Man: No.
Scholar: Did you ever think that you will get a slap from me,
Young Man: No.
Scholar: That is takdir (fate).
Scholar: My hand that I used to slap you, what is it created

Young Man: It is created from skin.
Scholar: How about your face, what is it created from?
Young Man: Skin.
Scholar: How do you feel after I slapped you?
Young Man: In pain.
Scholar: Even though Shaitan (Devil) and also the hell were
created from the fire, if Allah wants, insha-Allah (God willing), the hell
will become a very painful place for Shaitan (Devil).
