Why is there suffering in Sikhi?

Recommended Posts

ਦੁਖੁ ਦਾਰੂ ਸੁਖੁ ਰੋਗੁ ਭਇਆ ਜਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਤਾਮਿ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥
dhukh dhaaroo sukh rog bhiaa jaa sukh taam na hoiee ||
Suffering is the medicine, and pleasure the disease, because where there is pleasure, there is no desire for God.

Japji Sahib - "Hukam likh dukh sukh paiieh." 

Just like Sikhs are oppressed by the Government, same way Blacks are oppressed by Whites (usually in the States, Black lives matter). 

One who is under His command will understand the "Why" with the "How." How do you know that glass of Orange is tasty? You heard your friends give different views but would you be intrigued and try a sip yourself or keep questioning "Why is everyone liking that juice?" Ok, I know it's a simple example over a complex situation but thas the thing. Need to be under his command to understand Grand situations of life.

I don't know why there is suffering in this cold world, I see many innocent people dying even though they were religiously devout to God such as the 1984 Anti Sikh Riots. Why would God or Whaeguru do such a heinous thing to cause suffering and hell such as the 1984 Anti Sikh riots.

The suffering is what made us strong.

It's what made the Khalsa what it is, it's what made us fight against oppression and tyranny.

It's why Sikhs are filled with the bravery and courage of lions, and why we aren't afraid when it comes to battle or war.
