Quran Says Every Event Has A Reason
٣٠ وَمَا أَصَابَكُمْ مِنْ مُصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ وَيَعْفُو عَنْ كَثِيرٍ
And whatever strikes you of disaster – it is for what your hands have earned; And He pardons much. Quran Surah Shura 42:30
As per the Quran, this is not only for material things but also for moral deeds. Start doing bad deeds or even only evil thoughts in your mind, and you will reap the consequences.
And this is what modern science tells us that in this universe all happenings are made up of interlocking chains of cause and effect in a relationship between events or things, where one is the result of the other or others. This is a combination of action and reaction.
In Philosophy, Science and Physics Causality, causation, or cause and effect is influence, by which one process, event, or state i.e a Cause contributes to the making of another process, event, or state i.e an Effect, where the cause is partly responsible for the effect, and the effect is partly reliant on the cause. In general, a process has many causes, which are also said to be causal factors for it, and all lie in its past. An effect can in turn be a cause of, or causal factor for, many other effects, which all lie in its future.
Examples of Cause and Effect
- We received 5 inches of rain in two hours. – The area was flooded.
- Smoking tobacco – Lung cancer
- An oil spill – Fire- Many deaths to animals wildlife
- He never brushes his teeth. – He has three cavities.
- The girl broke her leg. – The physician put it in a cast.
- Sedentary lifestyle – Diseases and obesity
In order to establish a cause & effect relationship, below five criteria must be met.
- Temporal precedence: The cause must precede the effect
- Co-Occurrence: Whenever the cause happens, the effect must also occur
- Non Occurrence: If the cause does not happen, then the effect must not take place
- Covariation: The effect & strength must vary in proportion with changes in the cause and its strength
- Control for extraneous variables: the covariance must not be due to other variables
Quran Miracle: Nothing Happening Without Some Purpose
Believe me, there is not a single smallest incident happen to you but has its reasons in addition to the physical cause and effects. As I told you above, that as per Quran Cause & Effect is not only for material things and phenomenon but also for moral deeds. You can look at the rise and fall of nations that throughout history when nations as a whole become corrupt and sinful their decline starts. For getting a detailed understanding of how this happens on an individual level, why we also see righteous in afflictions, and moreover why you should not judge people by their apparent situation, please read “Real Cause of Afflictions”, Quran Miracle: Neuroplasticity And “Punishment Or Respite.”
Check your memory, it might have happened to you and your conscious deep inside might have stored that feeling, regarding why that recent or a past incident some injury, an obstacle in your task or a small car accident happened to you.
