Questioning Allah Ta'ala's decisions

Q: One of my Hindu friends asked how God decides if someone will be wealthy and others will be poor. Similarly, how will someone be born healthy and others disabled. etc. Is this decision randomly made by God or is there some logic behind it? I understand this life is a test but why do some people have relatively easy tests and others really hard tests?

A: Allah Ta`ala did not ask you to find the reason as to why someone is healthy and someone is wealthy. Had He included you in this decision then you would have a reason to ask. And since He kept you out so you will remain out if it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
