Why Has Allah Closed His Eyes to Palestinian Suffering?

Dr. Shabir Ally addresses a viewer's question about why Allah appears indifferent to the suffering of Palestinians.

He explains that Allah is fully aware of all situations and allows hardships as part of a complex plan that can sometime be beyond human understanding. He says God has empowered humans by giving them freedom and power.

He emphasizes human responsibility in alleviating suffering and says that despite the horrors we are witnessing, the resilience of the Gazan people has revitalized faith among Muslims, attracted non-Muslims to Islam, and caused many people around the world to understand and support the freedom of Palestinians.
