    Abstract

    Muslim divine theological sources are two; namely, the Koran and the Prophetic tradition. Both sources explain about human suffering in this world and the coming suffering for some human beings in the hereafter. Some of the human sufferings are caused by their own thoughts, decisions and actions such as adulterers, polytheists and hypocrites while some other sufferings are inflicted by other human beings who decide to become evil doers such as thieves, rapists, robbers, cheaters and killers. The human evil doers make other humans their victims and inflict suffering on them. This study focuses on human suffering based on the Koran and the Prophetic traditions. Some of the sufferings take place in this world while some other sufferings are going to be in the hereafter for some human beings.
