There are the congenital defects: like mongolism
God has the wisdom: He makes clear to you His marvels: when you see the defect, you will know the wisdom
: if you see the abnormal mentality, you will know the sound mentality. If there is no defect, you will not know the intact state.
In mongolism for example, we feel pity of course for the defective one, but we on the same time will know the chromosomes, the heredity and the genes .. etc which is a tremendous discipline of knowledge.
Moreover, the mongol one will have no reckoning or taking to account (will not be judged) like the sane one; every one will be taken to account according to his mind and reason.
In addition, the mongol will be a medium (or a messenger) between men and women: he carries messages for example, and he can go to women in their privacy, because he is not sexually alert.
So this is some explanation, and certainly God is more Merciful than you and me about the mongol one.
The mongol will go to Paradise, while the sane one, who may be an atheist or a disbeliever and a wrong-doer: will go to Hell on account of his disbelief and wrong-doing.
If the parents are righteous monotheists (and they believe in all His messengers) and they show patience and do not blaspheme, their mongol son or daughter will accompany them in Paradise and they all will be happy forever.
I asked the Quran interpreter
about the mongol (having Down's syndrome), and he answered me almost like this.
