Islam Question and Answer – Ruling on one who curses life

Ruling on one who curses life
Is it permissible for a man to curse life if he gets angry or if heg ets fed up? We hope that you can advise us concerning that.

 

Praise be to Allaah. 

It
is not permissible for a man to curse life if he feels fed up, because
the Prophet (peace and blessings
of Allaah be upon him) said, in a hadeeth qudsi that Allaah says, “The
son of Adam offends Me by inveighing against [the vicissitudes of] Time,
and I am Time. In My Hand is the alternation of night and day.” It was
also narrated that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do not inveigh against
Time, for Allaah is Time”, i.e., He is the One Who is controlling Time.
So when man is afflicted with calamity, he must be patient and seek
reward, for Allaah has enjoined patience.

 And
Allaah said to His Prophet ` (peace
and blessings of Allaah be upon him) (interpretation of the meaning):

“This
is of the news of the Unseen which We reveal unto you (O Muhammad);
neither you nor your people knew it before this. So be patient. Surely,
the (good) end is for the Muttaqoon (the pious)” [Hood 11:49]

 Let
man know that no matter what happens there is something worse than that
somewhere else in the world. If he understands that, then his problem
will become easier to bear.
