I have often been asked by people who experienced abuse, if Hashem gives us everything that we deserve, and if there is a measured reason for every challenge that we face, does that mean that when someone experiences abuse Hashem has decided that they deserve it?

1) What is the Torah Hashkafah on such a question?

2) What is the best way to address that question with someone who is experiencing abuse in an honest, but sensitive way?
