Allah might decree circumstances for you that cause you pain; this pain is also the occasion for granting you favours and blessings.

Does the name Nourellah exist? I mean is it ok or it might be haram?

It’s a common afghan name. I’m not sure about the permissibility.

Why would it be haram?

It does mean Allah’s noor but it is not literally to mean an attribute of Allah. Just as the Ka’ba is referred to as ‘baytullah’ Allah’s house, it does not mean that Allah lives in there or belongs there, but it is ennobling that particular thing or person.

Purity.

Christian Salvation

If mercy, love, compassion is the nature of the Divine, because He said He has inscribed rahma (mercy), love, compassion on His very Self, on His nature, that has implications far view of history, that the radical Evangelical view of history as being divided absolutely into the unsaved and the saved and that outside having a personal relationship with Jesus there is no salvation is an intolerable challenge to the principle of the Love of God. A god who coherently and recognizably shows mercy and compassion and care to His creatures doesn’t stuff all of salvation into a single moment in human history - because that is mean, that’s being avaricious with the truth. And we now know that the human story is so old; recognizable homo sapiens goes back so many tens of thousands, so many hundreds of thousands of years, to say that it is only in the last 2,000 years that a proper relationship between human beings and God has been possible makes a nonsense of the idea of Divine Love. because that’s not loving, that’s a kind of arbitrary diktat.

The Qur’anic version is quite different: Li kulli qawmin haad. For every people there has been a guide. And the guidance that was given, the salvation that was offered through all of the tens of thousands of prophets has been the same salvation. That is the true understanding of God’s saving action in history based on the understanding of God as having Love and Compassion inscribed on His very nature.

Imam Junayd al-Baghdadi (رحمه الله) once said, "One cannot be an ‘arif (knower of Allah) until he has become like the Earth, which is trampled upon by both the righteous and the sinners, or like the cloud which casts its shadow on everything, or like the rain that quenches the thirst of those it loves and those it does not love.”Source: The Risalah of Imam Qushayri, Chapter: On Ma’rifa (Gnosis)

Let us implore Allah to help us to self-control: one who lacks self-control is deprived of the grace of the Lord. The undisciplined man does not maltreat himself alone, but he sets the whole world on fire.
