Intellectual Discourse Making on The True Way of Life

One of the most preliminary parts of humans is being blessed with intelligence. Modern medical practice confirms that the heart can think like the brain. Hence, the combination of both is called intelligence. The most prominent belief for human beings is believing in Allah and his messengers and it is only possible because of this intellect. So, we must pursue definite knowledge before coming to any conclusions or following anything blindly. Indeed, those who have questioned their intellect will accept guidance from God. The holy Quran mentions the story of 7 young people (The people of cave) which we read every Friday. These people had no Prophet or guidance around them yet they came up to a conclusion that they can’t worship other deities and used their intellect in search of truth, so they got the guidance from God. The Quran rejects superstitions and urges you to mold beliefs and ideas upon definitive knowledge. Undeniably, the message of the prophets is based upon the very fact that man must use his intellect, i.e ears, eyes, and brain to safeguard himself from misguidance and to find the path of righteousness. Since Allah Almighty has blessed humans with these senses, Human beings will be responsible to choose the way of justice. So, we can’t blame it on destiny and if Allah were to ordain us to destiny, then the purpose of books and messengers will be obsolete.

Now coming to science, we know that the definition of science is the knowledge obtained through observations and experiments. The Quran accepts the knowledge which is either revealed or discovered. Except for this, Quran doesn’t accept any other forms of knowledge. Consequently, if anything is agreed upon these two forms of knowledge, then it is the enlightenment of God. Contrary to that, if both of those do not agree then the Quran and Islam do not consider it as truth. Let’s give an example here – some people believe that if a black cat crosses their path, then it’s a bad omen so, they might think that their tasks are either delayed or incomplete. It is a common belief throughout the world that is neither based on knowledge nor facts. It has been discovered that its illogical. Now let us understand some science here, we know that earthquakes are a result of disturbances in tectonic plates. Okay, so what causes this disturbance? Currently science has no answer to this question. Let’s take another example – the tidal waves in the ocean are the result of a gravitational force, The moon’s gravitational pull-on Earth is the main reason for the rise and fall of ocean tides. When you Question again, where did this force come from? then science doesn’t have an answer, The only answer the scientists will say in both cases is that it is the physical phenomenon of nature. We can understand from this that even science has limitations and shortcomings. It is a prerequisite to know the solution to those problems which fall beyond the control of human knowledge.

Everyone knows that a half-truth is always dangerous moreover, it diverts our ideologies, with half-truths we are going to end up in the wrong direction. Now, coming to the atheists, they believe that the creation of this universe was either by explosion or Big Bang. They do not believe in God and they think that our forefathers have passed this false delusion of God and they think that there is no concrete evidence for the existence of God. Today in this modernized era, we have learnt about the big bang theory through many observations and experiments, but how come an uneducated man knew about it 1400 years ago? Without any revelation of God, how can anyone point this out? That too in the period when science was not discovered? (I.e., Refer Quran 21:30) If there is no god as proclaimed by atheists then it is suitable for a man to commit suicide. If a traveler doesn’t know his destination and has no one to guide him and has no ways and means to find his destination then he possesses only one thing- a complete disappointment. Today, modern science is at very peak grade Even after that we Muslims can claim that there is not a single verse of the Quran that contradicts the established science because we believe that this universe is the action of God and the Quran is the discourse of God and no doubt his discourse and action cannot contradict. We know today that Islam is the most rapid growing religion in the world because of the authenticity of the Quran. Quran claim is very clear and evident before us, that mankind has to surrender before Allah and follow the path shown by the prophets of Allah. Now we have to instigate whether this claim is worth accepting? Why not search ourselves and enquire whether we have another option open for us before accepting it?

If a man uses his intellect and attempts to understand rationally and attempts to understand the fact-finding way, this will be sufficient to satisfy him that human life is one and it is inseparable in all parts of his life because, all aspects of life are co-related to each other, He may infer from his intellect that the whole of humanity has but one purpose and must strive to achieve it. All the aspects of our life for example; Art, culture, morals, educational, financial, administrative, civilization, politics, military, law, religion, and society needs one comprehensive system of life where all these aspects mentioned are harmoniously fitted because all of us possess the same nature and temperaments in principles and actions. By following it, as the humanity as a whole, then only he can achieve the highest attainable aim for which he was created and learn how to live a peaceful and happy life in this world without any corruption or evildoing. As a matter of fact, if one says that we need division of life regarding (geographical, racial, time) anything then it is no exaggeration to say that the ideologies of two brothers born in a single womb of a mother will be different so one who tells us we need different laws regarding the division of life then he must also say that we need different laws for every single individual which will be completely pointless and baseless. Human preferences, characteristics, power, capabilities have seen only slight change from the first day of this planet to this day. Hence We need a flawless system of life that folds universal, lasting, and perpetual principles, and is thus able to pass changing conditions and circumstances safely and able to solve all mankind’s problems with harmony and peace. Only with this system of life a man can travel towards his destination safely.

For this, a man must find answers to such questions as What is his nature? What is the nature of this universe? Moreover, he requires knowing that whether his life ends in this world only or he has to stand in front of someone who has bestowed this large number of blessings and is accountable for every single action of his life. Humans need comprehensive and adaptable principles of social life which are free from imbalance and extremes. We must stock all 4 sources which are desire, intellect, observations & experiments, and history of the nations of the past, in a complete way as possible to see the ideal system of life. To adapt this way of life we just need a guide who is God, he has deposited into every creature it’s guidance, the one who made everything in its proper shape and guided its functionality. If you want any proof then get hold of an ant, fly, or spider and study it. If God has guided them, then surely man must be guided too. Islam is the only true and correct system of life because it is compatible with the real facts of life. Not only this but it is also correct in terms of justice, and Allah has also bestowed upon us guidance. The greatest demand of belief is that not only do you enjoy the blessings of the right system of life but also invite others. All your struggles and efforts must be for making this right system of life accessible to all human beings.

Modern-day Ignorance

Today, in this modernized era, humanity is utterly distorted. We find people who judge an entire culture or community based on the actions of certain evil people, we find superstitious beliefs, we find people who spread fallacies and see the daughter as a burden, demand a dowry, slander as it’s their birthingright and kill each other for money, glory, property.

Humans are carrying out all the activities of brutality and vandalism which don’t have any logic or rational explanation. In our society, almost everyone can read and write. All that we have obtained in a wide range of schools, colleges, and universities, achieved so many qualifications, are just paper degrees. Compared to days of the past, gaining knowledge is so easy through various means and resources.

Firstly, the state of ‘ignorance’ means the ‘lack of knowledge or comprehension’ or inappropriate education, and we can also say it’s a fear of learning, growing, and being correct.

From the Islamic point of view, the ‘state of ignorance’ means that the individual does not have authentic knowledge of God and the prophet. He has no wisdom about the true purpose of life and what will happen to him after he dies and how he will account for his actions in the sight of God. Ignorance itself is neither immoral nor unpleasant, but acting on such ignorance may result in both. It is the actions based on the implications of ignorance that lead to prejudice.

There are two significant reasons behind this ignorance. They are; that people believe that the ideologies or principles which they represent are the only way to lead a better life and they refrain to comprehend how they came into existence, and what is the evidence today that justifies their ideologies and principles and also perhaps tackle and challenge things in the wrong way.

These people misinterpreted the fact that solutions or principles provided by God are superior to a man. Consequently, people who are in authority become outrageous and tyrants because they realized that he is only responsible to himself for his affairs and they come in so far as the solution furnished by the book of God is not the solution to their problems. They even make declarations and lies which they want to follow, instead of God’s book.

We must raise here a question that, ‘Do we have to follow the ideologies of imperfect human beings?’ Or should we follow the divine Laws of God who treats us righteously?

The second most significant thing is that the more a man cultivates his bond with the things of the world, the more he will be a transgressor which results in an eminent loss in the Afterlife.

Sadly, today people live on the verge of faith, which represents that they do not want to practice the divine laws in sacred books. This commences a vicious circle, in which the young people don’t want to practice the laws of the holy books and thus, we will not find a solution if this is our nature.
Until and unless we promote and cultivate the true divine laws by adopting them and representing in the same manner of the sacred books we will not change this society. Even if you follow the true God’s ideology, the revolutionary outcome arises from the revolutionary actions, change will not come unless you learn, adapt and reflect the book of God and accepting the truth from persons, even who we hate.

Unfortunately, when people do not believe in what they should, namely, when they do not have sound faith in God, that is an attribute of human nature, which leads them to believe in falsehoods. Human nature is inclined to a quest for the truth but sometimes people put on the hat of falsehood and try to satisfy their heart, which yearns for the truth. Living with more wisdom and knowledge allows us to act more ethically when events occur that lead to such a challenge, but it doesn’t necessarily imply the converse, which is that acting ethically means we are wiser and more knowledgeable.

One cannot claim ignorance after one has been given the knowledge, for denial of such information to claim ignorance is morally equivalent to lying and manipulation.
However, this is an internal battle, because those outside, cannot determine if one is denying the knowledge, unable to integrate the knowledge into their beliefs, or incapable of understanding what knowledge was bestowed and hence, the moral quandary is internal.

The only solution to the ignorance of the modern age is that man must be aware of his mistake and accept God as his superior. An ignorant person doesn’t care about anything because he is unaware of the truth, whereas the one who knows about the truth can perceive the strict incoming of the hereafter. Whenever man holds the reality by his discretionary knowledge and accepts the only way of life is through God and the prophets who came up with the message of God and live as a way that God willed, then he will attain happiness in this life and success in the hereafter.
