Being Distanced from the Mercy of Allah

    سُئِلَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله عَليهِ السَلامْ:

    مَنْ أَبْغَضَ الْخَلْقِ إِلىَ الله؟ قَالَ عَليهِ السَلامْ: مَنْ يَتَّهِمُ إلَيْهِ. قِيلَ وَ أحَدٌ مَنْ يَتَّهِمُ اللهَ؟ قَالَ عَليهِ السَّلام نَعَمْ. مَنِ اسْتَخَارَ اللهَ فَجَائَتْهُ الْخِيَرَةُ بِمَا يُكْرِهُ فَسَخَطَ. فَذَاِلِكَ يَتَّهِمُ اللهَ.

al‑Imam al‑Sadiq (as) was once asked: "Who is the worst creation in the eyes of Allah?" The Imam (as) ,replied, "The one who levels an accusation against Him (Allah). " The person retorted, "Is it possible for a person to level an accusation against Allah?" The Imam (as) ,replied, "Yes. The one who asks Allah for the best and it (the best) is given to him but in the way of something that he does not like, and he becomes upset. Thus, this is the one who has leveled an accusation against Allah. ‘’ 2
