Islam is not a “religion”
The Meaning of Man
This World and the Hereafter
Islam, the Message
Development and Underdevelopment
Justice and Spirituality
Defamatory Campaigns against Islam
Modern man no longer wonders!
The “what” and the “why”
O Bewildered Man!
The prevailing concepts in the contemporary leading civilization define man as a being that was self-made as a result of evolutions that took place in the very distant past. Man was a germ that had come from Mars, or another planet, and then evolved on the shores of an ancient sea into a fish, a reptile, a mammal walking on all fours, until it became an ape. Then the ape evolved until “he” could speak; “he” spoke for reasons readily furnished to the modern, perplexed man by pseudo scientists who obstruct him from the way of God. That primitive ape spoke, according to them, to fulfill certain needs: subsistence, survival, self-defense. That is the meaning of man in the contemporary Godless civilization.
Yet when Muslims speak of man, they see him as a creature just like the heavens and the earth, and the fauna and flora that are in them. Man is a creature. This man-creature has been granted a singularly great care by the Maker—Glorified be He—Who prepared for him a temporary house from which he will traverse into a House in which he will dwell for eternity. He will traverse from the house of this world into the House of the Hereafter. God—Exalted be He—created him in this world to test him and to give him the chance to perform righteous deeds for which he will be rewarded in the Hereafter, in Paradise.
