Abstract

by The Qoran and every Islamic book begin with the words: "In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful." In this formula, which is put at the head of every book and every treatise, which is re- peated every day hundreds of times at the beginning of any action of importance, the divine attributes of compassion and mercy are partic- ularly emphasized and selected out of the great number of God's names and attributes which are known both from the Qoran and from Mu- hammedan tradition. It is one of the most positive and firmest convictions of every Muslim that God is compassionate and merciful.-But did the Muslims never doubt the mercy and compassion of God ? What mankind has experienced, what happens every day in this world, God's own world, does this confirm the conviction that God is compassionate and merciful ? Whence comes the evil that occurs in the world ? And what is the answer to the more universal question: What is the real meaning of the universe and the things going on in it ? Why has God created this strange world? First, let us see what the dogmatic Muslim theologians have said
