How Could G-d Allow This To Happen?

"How could G-d allow this to happen"?

This question has been repeated time and time again throughout the centuries. Perhaps it is not really a question but rather a cry of despair. While everyone asks this profound question, no one is capable of understanding the answer. Man can ask this question, but only G-d can answer.

"Could this have happened because of....?"

The answer may be yes or it may be no. Or the answer may be yes and no at the same time.

I don't have the answer, but I know that there is one.

When something bad happens, instead of asking "why", we should ask "how?" - "How can I help?"

A Jew must believe and perceive that everything happens at the hand of G-d, and the Holy Blessed One does not execute judgment without justice, G-d forbid. This is fundamental. It is one of the Thirteen Principles of the Jewish Faith.... Besides this, it is also a source of strength and joy in times of suffering.
