    Soohee, Fifth Mehl:
    God covers the many shortcomings of His slaves.
    Granting His Mercy, God makes them His own. ||1||
    You emancipate Your humble servant,
    and rescue him from the noose of the world, which is just a dream. ||1||Pause||
    Even huge mountains of sin and corruption
    are removed in an instant by the Merciful Lord. ||2||
    Sorrow, disease and the most terrible calamities
    are removed by meditating on the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||3||
    Bestowing His Glance of Grace, He attaches us to the hem of His robe.
    Grasping the Lord's Feet, O Nanak, we enter His Sanctuary. ||4||22||28||

    This begs the question...

    How can evil exist if God is 'Benevolent' ?

    Let's debate it. I'll take the side of God is not benevolent.

    You go first, and answer the question. =)

    God was benevolent for those who conspired 9/11 , and was not benevolent for those who were victims .


    Who , knows that the history may have repeated ...

    Those who were victims might have done the same thing in the Past , the people who conspired the attack were victims . ?????

    Now , the second option , If you believe that there is no past life , then its the simple thing Survival of the fittest.
