Some time ago I received the following email from a Muslim friend:
â€œYou say that God ‘s hands are tied by his own laws. You write, ‘God can do anything except deny himself and ignore his own laws. ‘ Why should our Creator impose such a constraint on his mercy? Even if he made such a law, he could break it straightaway since he is all-powerful! He can choose to forgive sin without punishing it. He can forgive just like that.â€
The tract answers this.
