Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
I have a Muslim relative family who lost their first born child after couple of months of his birth.
The situation of the mother is very bad specially that she is over 30 now (so she might not get pregnant again) and she had spent months breast-feeding her child and the mother-child relationship had been established.
The child was born with birth complications that he had to undergo many surgeries to adjust an internal blood vein.
Islam does not have an answer to their tragedy, and I’m personally searching the Bible for an adequate explanation for that so I can point it to that family.
I have read in the Bible the following:
*“As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.””
*“Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?””
My 1’st inquiry is: Is that birth complication is Satan’s work, Humans work, or GOD’s work?
My 2’nd inquiry is: JESUS said in (John 9:1-5) “that the works of God might be displayed in him”, how does that apply nowadays when no one (even Priests) can do anything regarding many birth defects?
My 3’ed inquiry is: What is the proper explanation from the Bible to tell that family regarding their child?
