If God exists, why does poverty? How can God, if He exists, the creator of heaven and earth, not eradicate poverty? Since poverty exists, it must mean God doesn’t.

First of all, we must ask ourselves if there is enough food on the planet to feed its population, or did God create the circumstances for poverty to always exist? Currently, the estimated population of the world is approximately 7 billion, and there is enough food in the world in this moment of time, to be able to feed 10 billion people.
So if there is enough food in the world to fulfill the need of every human being, and more, then why does poverty exist? Nelson Mandela would like to answer the question: “Poverty is not an accident, like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings.”
You see, in 2012 alone, the world’s top 100 richest people earned enough money to eradicate extreme poverty four times over. Poverty does not exist because God does not exist. Poverty exists because of the actions of human beings, because of your action. Yes, you. “Did you think you would enter the Garden without God first proving which of you would struggle for His cause and remain steadfast?” [Quran 3:142]

tanx @ Abdul. I like the part whr u stated that, the approximated world’s population is 7 billion and there is enough food to feed 10 billion people hence poverty exists because of the actions of human beings. Greed has poison men’s soul.
