As I will explain later on - the essence of Shiite religion is the suffering through adversities and graet calamity that will happen one day.Actually the suffering of the prophet Mohammed's grandsons is the main obsession of Shiites and cornerstone of their religious teaching.
Very inteesting point, and more interesting is the near similarity with the crucifixion. And where does it all come from? from harboring bad thoughts about God, would God fail to protect the righteous!
The believers know better, they know that God saves the righteous and raises their souls before they suffer, they are transferred directly to Heaven, which means that the martyrs like Jesus, Ali and Hussein didn't actually die the horrible deaths their idol-worshippers would like to think it happened.
Also harboring these bad thoughts about God brings these misguided followers additional pain and trauma which facilitates Satan's taking hold of their minds. The karbala festival in which Ali's worshipers whip and inflict serious injuries on themselves is a living proof. Maybe that can be extended also to the self destruction of the modern Christian by means of Alcohol and extremes. Was the Holocaust too a self fulfilling prophecy!
God is indeed the most efficient reckoner, and Hell starts now for the idolworshipers with this constant pain they seem to enjoy!
The Most Merciful saved Jesus:
[4:157] And for claiming that they killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of GOD. In fact, they never killed him, they never crucified him - they were made to think that they did. All factions who are disputing in this matter are full of doubt concerning this issue. They possess no knowledge; they only conjecture, they didn't really kill him.
[4:158] Instead, GOD raised him to Him; GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.
The righteous go straight to Heaven:
[2:154] Do not say of those who are killed in the cause of GOD, "They are dead." They are alive at their Lord, but you do not perceive.
Harboring evil thoughts always backfires:
[48:6] And He will requite the hypocrite men and women and the idol worshiping men and women, for they have harbored evil thoughts about GOD. Their evil will backfire against them. For GOD is angry with them, condemns them, and has prepared for them Gehenna. What a miserable destiny!
Hell is already surrounding the disbelievers!:
[9:49] Some of them would say, "Give me permission (to stay behind); do not impose such a hardship on me." In fact, they have thus incurred a terrible hardship; Hell is surrounding the disbelievers.
