Moment of consideration - 2
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
(continued from the last)
The mankind comes in this world and dies. The period between his birth and death is his worldly life. He can pass this life as he wishes, but usually every individual adopts that way which has been chosen already by the people of his family, tribe, town and country. Such way of life, according to Arabic language, is called “Religion”.
The religions may be many, but Qur’aan says that the correct Religion for the human being is only one, remaining all are false. For explanation of that one Religion, Allah Almighty has appointed His Messengers to the intelligent people from other human beings from time to time, and said to them: Manifest the correct Religion on the mankind.
Then every human being has power of choice that “whether he chooses the Right Religion or Wrong”. It clearly means that “none can compel any other about the Religion”. Every person can pass his life individually or collectively according to own Will without any hindrance, prohibition or obstruction.
Known that; in the world, mutual contradiction will remain in the way of life, and in spite of it, the entire people will live altogether in the same world. That is to say; the people should keep up their differences as well as preserve the life of all people also. What is its form? That is; about the Religion, no individual or group should quarrel with any other individual or group, and they should make a treaty of alliance mutually that none will dispute with any other. Moreover, they will help one another fully and sincerely in “Live and let others live with peace and safety”. And in which matter they feel that any confusion has been occurring, they all should cover it up mutually and let never the mischievous people get strong.
We do not have any concern with the religion i.e. way of life of any person, whether he/she has any religion, caste or belongs to any country. We shall annihilate only mischief, evil, attempt to keep other people under influence, desire to possess all necessities of life alone, aim to accomplish one’s wishes by threatening others and communal disputes.
Every individual can preach for a good way of life i.e. religion, by keeping the pure good-will in view; being a well-meaning. In the same way, the Believers can produce the actual Religion also suitably according to the teachings of Holy Qur’aan before the world by bringing forth themselves as an example of good deeds, words; counsel, homily, good character and chaste manners, and they can persuade the people of the world by acting upon the commandments of Holy Qur’aan.
It appears that the Holy Qur’aan supports to provide facilities of worldly life at first to every human being. After that, It guides the humankind to be prepared for the Day of Resurrection. And it gives authority to everyone that “who desires, should go on Its Guidance”. Then who can say that “Islam compels the mankind to adopt it”?
