people who mocked God


Religion is not something to play around with. If you don’t understand it, don’t bash it or talk trash about it and let someone make it understandable for you. Never talk ill of GOD (Allah Almighty) any day, anywhere, anyhow, because HIS wrath there’s no one who can stand it. There have been some ill-minded astray people who mocked God and faced the music there and then. Allah Almighty Himself says in His Holy Book i.e. Quran Majeed:

قُلْ اَبِاللّٰهِ وَاٰيٰتِهٖ وَرَسُوْلِهٖ كُنْتُمْ تَسْتَهْزِءُوْنَ؀لَا تَعْتَذِرُوْا قَدْ كَفَرْتُمْ بَعْدَ اِيْمَانِكُمْ  ۭاِنْ نَّعْفُ عَنْ طَاۗىِٕفَةٍ مِّنْكُمْ نُعَذِّبْ طَاۗىِٕفَةًۢ  بِاَنَّهُمْ كَانُوْا مُجْرِمِيْنَ

Translation: Say: Were you mocking Allah, His Revelations and His Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him)? (Now) do not make excuses. You have certainly become disbelievers after (showing that) you believed. If We forgive a party of you, (even then) We shall torment the other party because they sinned (and mocked their Lord).


The following famous people who mocked God and died a horrible death mysteriously:

1. Pharaoh of Egypt (Who Mocked God)
people who mocked God

When Hazrat Musa (Moses) Alaihissalam invited Pharaoh of Egypt to believe in One God (Allah Only), he mocked God. He said: we have not seen any God on earth. So, now we will climb up into the heavens to see whether there is any God. While arguing with Hazrat Musa Alaihissalam, the pharaoh in an ironic and mocking tone, asked his minister Haman to build a lofty tower so that he could climb up and enter the heavens to look for Hazrat Musa’s God (Allah Almighty) there. Allah Almighty mentioned the same in the Holy Quran in the following Holy Words:

وَقَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ يٰهَامٰنُ ابْنِ لِيْ صَرْحًا لَّعَلِّيْٓ اَبْلُغُ الْاَسْبَابَ؀اَسْبَابَ السَّمٰوٰتِ فَاَطَّلِعَ اِلٰٓى اِلٰهِ مُوْسٰى وَاِنِّىْ لَاَظُنُّهٗ كَاذِبًا   ۭ وَكَذٰلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِفِرْعَوْنَ سُوْۗءُ عَمَلِهٖ وَصُدَّ عَنِ السَّبِيْلِ ۭ وَمَا كَيْدُ فِرْعَوْنَ اِلَّا فِيْ تَبَابٍ

Translation: “Pharaoh said: “O Haman! Build me a lofty palace, that I may attain the ways and means- “The ways and means of (reaching) the heavens, and that I may mount up to the god of Moses: But as far as I am concerned, I think (Moses) is a liar!” Thus was made alluring, in Pharaoh’s eyes, the evil of his deeds, and he was hindered from the Path; and the plot of Pharaoh led to nothing but perdition (for him).” (Al-Momin:37)

Pharaoh mocked God and was taught big lesson. He along with his army was drowned in red sea while chasing Hazrat Musa Alaihissalam. This idiot mocker was ruined and made an example for the whole world. His mummy is lying in Egypt Museum as a warning for the people till the day of resurrection. Moreover, he will face the music in the life hereafter in hell as well.

2. Michael Jackson (American Pop Star)

As a child, he showed his hand to an astrologer. The astrologer told Jackson that he would live to be 70 years old, so Jackson laughed (in a way mocked and challenged God) and replied:

I would live to be 150 years old.

I’ll live to be at least 150” (DailyMailTV)

The famous American pop star Michael Jackson wanted to live for 150 years but unfortunately, he was limited to the age of 50. To ensure his long life he had taken several unprecedented steps like:

  1. He used to wear hand gloves and did not do handshake with people with naked hands.
  2. He used to put on a mask on his face for protection.
  3. In his house, he had appointed 12 doctors to take care of him. These doctors, used to check on a daily basis, his health and fitness, from hair to toenails.
  4. He had never consumed any food until it was thoroughly tested in the laboratory.
  5. 15 people were appointed for his daily exercise.
  6. He always slept in a bed with oxygen (oxygen chamber).
  7. He had in advance, arranged his stand-by donors for all vital parts/organs of the body i.e. heart, lungs, lever etc. These donors would remain ready to donate their vital parts all the time. He used to bear all their expenses.
  8. For the last 25 years of his life, he did not go anywhere without consulting the doctor.

Despite all measures mentioned above, he could not live for 150 years. Rather, his life was limited to 50 years only by the Owner and Controller of life and death (Allah Almighty). On 25th June 2009, his heartbeat stopped. At the time of his death, 12 doctors were present in his home but nobody could save him.

Challenging God for his 150 years long life, he lost to the challenge and died at 50 years only.

Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:

اَيْنَ مَا تَكُوْنُوْا يُدْرِكْكُّمُ الْمَوْتُ وَلَوْ كُنْتُمْ فِيْ بُرُوْجٍ مُّشَـيَّدَةٍ

Translation: “Wheresoever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high.” (Al-Nisa’a:78)

3. Krishna Pal (Date with death on 12/12/12 Ghaziabad, India)

people who mocked God

A 40-year-old man namely Krishna Pal of Uttar Pradesh (India) decided to mock and challenge God and die by his own will and timetable. Krishan Pal hailed from Narora town in Bulandshahr district. He ran a nursery. He decided to take his life into his own hands by killing himself on 12.12.12 on 12-12-12. He jumped from atop a water tank and fell about 80 feet to his death.

To keep his date with fate, the man, Krishna Pal, scaled the overhead water tank at Pratap Vihar in Ghaziabad, Delhi’s suburban town in Uttar Pradesh. Pal earlier wrote a 12-page note that he wished to determine the time of his death on his own, and would like to end his life 12 minutes after 12 p.m. on the 12th day of the 12th month of the year 2012.

He claimed that he would, by thus doing suicide, “challenge God” and take his life and death into his own hands, grabbing these “out of God’s hands”. Pal made elaborate arrangements to execute his plan.

Before scaling the water tank at Pratap Vihar within the police station limits of Vijay Nagar, he had stored bricks and stones to hurl down at people who might dissuade him from his resolve. He also carried a rope and photocopies of his 12-page note.

Krishan Pal reached the top of the water tank at 10 a.m. He tied the rope around his neck, causing alarm among people who saw him then. The police were informed by people. Despite police presence, Pal continued with his “programme”. He also threw down copies of the note he had written, mentioning how he had determined the time of his death, without “consulting God”.

When Pal was busy with his preparations, some people tried to reach the top of the water tank, but Pal hurled at them the bricks and stones he had carried with him. Meanwhile, police gathered at the site to persuade the man to climb down and desist from doing something fatal. Pal told the police officers:

He was challenging God, so who were they in comparison?”

Finding the pressure building on him to desist from suicide, Pal, however, wavered from his plan and jumped to his death at 11.05 a.m. He tried his level best to die with his own will and time but could not succeed and died at the time that was fixed by Allah Almighty.

Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran:

قُلِ اللّٰهُ يُحْيِيْكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيْتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يَجْمَعُكُمْ اِلٰى يَوْمِ الْقِيٰمَةِ لَا رَيْبَ فِيْهِ وَلٰكِنَّ اَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُوْنَ

Translation: “Say: Allah is the One Who gives you life and He is the One Who causes you to die. Then He will gather all of you towards the Day of Resurrection about which there is no doubt. But most people do not know.” (Al-Jathia:26)

4. Thomas Andrews (the Man who Designed “Titanic” Ship)

people who mocked God

After the construction of the RMS Titanic, a reporter Mrs. Albert Caldwell before he and his family boarded the Titanic asked, how safe the Titanic would be. Thomas with an ironic tone, said:

“Not even God can sink this ship”.


“God Himself Could not sink this ship”.

Later the ship sunk killing so many onboard, including him. His body was never recovered but the one, who asked this question, survived. Undoubtedly, Allah Almighty is the One Who controls everything including life, death and the huge ships in the oceans:

اَلَمْ تَرَ اَنَّ اللّٰهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُمْ مَّا فِي الْاَرْضِ وَالْفُلْكَ تَجْرِيْ فِي الْبَحْرِ بِاَمْرِهٖ   ۭ وَيُمْسِكُ السَّمَاۗءَ اَنْ تَقَعَ عَلَي الْاَرْضِ اِلَّا بِاِذْنِهٖ   ۭ  اِنَّ اللّٰهَ بِالنَّاسِ لَرَءُوْفٌ رَّحِيْمٌ

Did you not see that Allah has given in your control all that is on the earth and the ship that moves upon the sea by His command? And He restricts the heavens that it may not fall onto the earth except by His command; indeed Allah is Most Compassionate, Most Merciful upon the human being. (Al-Haj:65)
