Allah Confronts Ayyub

Vinayasadhana --> FEARLESS, FREE AND FAITHFUL -->Allah Confronts Ayyub

This is a personal reflection by a Christian on The Book of Job/
Ayyub from the Hebrew Bible. Religious dogmatism confines
adherents within their tradition over against adherents of other
religious traditions. Such a stance is not able to respond to the
great improbables of life such as the suffering of the innocent. It
can also lead to communal conflict and to the impoverishment
of faith by imaging God in superficial anthropomorphic terms.
Only through facing the tempest within ourselves, and in the
surrounding society, will we encounter Allah the All Merciful, the
All Compassionate, who moves us beyond dogmatic certainties
and religious partisanship. Such was the journey of Job/Ayyub:
a journey from certainty to faith. With such a purifying journey
we can embrace religious pluralism not as compromise but rather
as an occasion for mutual conversion and mutual enrichment.
