  • Does Man need religion?



    Strongest results

    Faith is the strongest and noblest motive for scientific research.

    Man cannot, under any circumstances, live without religion.

    Just as man is social by nature and cannot live alone and be isolated from society, he is also innately devout and cannot live properly without religion. Religiousness is a natural instinct in man.

    The clearest proof of this is that man flees to Allah Almighty when facing difficulties and hard times. Allah says: }And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allh, making their Faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others{(Al-Ankabt: 65) Dale Carnegie

    The religious and the sick

    I can remember the days when people talked about the conflict between science and religion, but no more. The newest of all sciences psychiatry - is teaching what religion teaches. Why? Because psychiatrists realize that prayer and a strong religious faith will banish the worries, anxieties, strains and fears that cause more than half of all our ills, as Dr. A. A. Brill said: Anyone who is truly religious does not develop a neurosis.

    Just like a person who manufactures a machine knows best about how it works and about its maintenance, the Creator likewise knows best about His creation and their needs: }Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves) All-Aware (of everything).{(Al-Mulk:14)

    Due to the fact that the Creator is Compassionate All-forgiving and All-Generous, He prescribed for people religion, so that their souls would flourish and their lives would be set right. Allah says: }O you who believe! Answer Allh (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he (pbuh) calls you to that which will give you life.{(Al-Anfl:24)

    This is why even those who go against their natural instinct and deny Allah, know within their souls that they are liars and are ungrateful. Allah says: }And they belied them (those Ayt) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayt) are from Allh, and Msa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allh in truth, but they disliked to obey Msa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidn (disbelievers, disobedient to Allh, evil-doers, liars.).{(An-Naml:14) Dale Carnegie

    Be deep

    The Philosopher, Francis Beacon, was right when he said: It is true that a little philosophy inclines mans mind to atheism; but a deep study of philosophy brings mans mind to religion.

    This is clearly seen during difficulties and hard times. Allah says: }40. Say (O Muhammad pbuh): Tell me if Allhs Torment comes upon you, or the Hour comes upon you, would you then call upon anyone other than Allh? (Reply) if you are truthful! 41. Nay! To Him Alone you call, and, if He will, He would remove that (distress) for which you call upon Him, and you forget at that time whatever partners you joined with Him (in worship)!{(Al-Anm:40-41)

    He also says: }And when some hurt touches man, he cries to his Lord (Allh Alone), turning to Him in repentance, but when He bestows a favour upon him from Himself, he forgets that for which he cried for before, and he sets up rivals to Allh, in order to mislead others from His Path. Say: Take pleasure in your disbelief for a while: surely, you are (one) of the dwellers of the Fire!{(Az-Zumar:8)

    For that reason, all humans have been created with a natural instinct placed inside them by Allah, which is the desire to want to worship a god in whose hands all power lies, Who does whatever He wishes and ordains what He wishes.Allah says: }And if Allh touches you with harm, none can remove it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He is Able to do all things.{(Al-Anm:17)

    He also says: }Whatever of mercy (i.e. of good) Allh may grant to mankind, none can withhold it, and whatever He may withhold, none can grant it thereafter.{(Ftir:2) How can the power of knowledge and the power of the will make man happy?Dr. Douglas R. Archer,

    Truth is crystal clear

    My Ph.D. thesis dealt with education and nation-building, and I discovered that the basic pillars of Islam provide a great foundation and a valuable base for rebuilding the nation socially, economically and spiritually.

    Man has two powers: the power of knowledge, and that of will; and the more effort he exerts to achieve them, the closer he becomes to reaching the goal he desires. Such is the case with happiness.
