God on Trial is a movie and a World War II drama about a group of Auschwitz prisoners who decide to put God on trial. The tale is based on anecdotal reports of an actual band of concentration camp inmates who convened a rabbinical court to determine how such evil could exist in a God-centric universe as they awaited the determination of their own fates — death or hard labor. The Jews in the movie fail to see any reasons why God is not coming to their special rescue despite the Covenant that He made with Abraham and Moses. It is good movie, bringing out many good points as they try God for violating the special Covenant with them. The extreme suffering of people in the concentration camp is undeniable. Nevertheless, they completely fail to bring out that they and their elders may have themselves violated the Covenant, in not recognizing the Messiah and in denying the other prophets of God. The Covenant may have been moved to a different nation now!
What was the covenant that Allah gave to the Prophet Abraham and how has it played out for his two sons Ishmael and Isaac in the last 4000 years? If the promises and prophecies have come true over the last 4 millennia then there is every reason to believe that they are relevant to our times also.
