Why? Why do we ask why? Are we obligated to justify? Or why do we justify? Did we ask why justification is important or not? What is reasoning? what is the cause and its effect
People are usually in a rush as they draw their own conclusion to answer only one or two of these questions and neglect the rest
Quran Verse: al anbiyah
37. Man is made of haste. I shall show you My portents, but ask Me not to hasten.
Or even if all questions were answered, an answer that is based on someone’s own conclusion is just an opinion, and can be right or wrong. Multiple opinions show conflicts. Same opinions show agreements and correctness. People’s opinions, if they contradict with the words of God, they are wrong, if they don’t, this can be defined as a key to a correct environment of development.
10. Whatever it be wherein ye differ, the decision thereof is with Allah: such is Allah my Lord: In Him I trust, and to Him I turn.
This is the methodology that cause our advancement where the base is taken from the foundations that God sent with his prophets. So our duty is to obey the creator and his prophets to achieve all of this
54. Say: “Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger: but if ye turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and ye for that placed on you. If ye obey him, ye shall be on right guidance. The Messenger’s duty is only to preach the clear (Message).
It’s important to conclude that sharing is the first law for achieving a highly advanced civilization. No body is perfect, but each individual was created to achieve a dedicated task and mission that no one else will share it with him/her.
38. Those who hearken to their Lord, and establish regular Prayer; who (conduct) their affairs by mutual Consultation; who spend out of what We bestow on them for Sustenance;
However, the what and why are the major causes for reaching what we are discussing. What to share? Why to share? And knowing the what and why determines then who is sharing. So who you are is not about who you are. It’s about what you shared and why you shared it.
Here is a story about a little boy. This boy was gifted as he had the ability to look at the world from a different angle. Indeed everyone sees the world from a different perspective. So the ones who think about money, they see the world different than those who see the world as knowledge. This boy sees the world according to nothing but the bless of God without him knowing. This boy did not see a direction as he looked at the world as an experiment. Thinking he was lost, but founded later he was guided by God. During his early ages, he looked at love, sins, good deeds, emotions, and the reactions of nature as life time experiments. Managing to let someone laugh, cry, then trying to convince him jump from the first floor, for example, was something to look at. These kinds of experiments that we are talking about, generated different experiences that did not have meanings by then. 10 years after it was found that all these experiences were made to be linked to situations written in the Holy Quran, which provided the right method to deal with such situations. Which cause a true gaining of wisdom, and keeps developing. This is the kind of learning that we are discussing where unique experiences caused a different kind of learning. Only few will understand this kind of bless, only few will know the God’s wisdom in this.
So why God made this boy experience all of this?
Perhaps there will be multiple answers for this question. One answer is answering the following question: why are we here on earth? Answering this form a text book is easy, but from an experience will make a big difference.
This boy experienced death multiple times, and just that enabled to acquire a different knowledge that many don’t understand. So this was a bless, but why? The answer is to share whatever is learned.
This boy, learned that there is a touched relationship with God, daily interactions, asking and giving. Learned that the real knowledge is not the knowledge we achieve from learning at our schools or computers, but it is the knowledge that we inherit from the foundations that God gave to us. Which is the legacy of all of his prophets, and the Torah, Bible and the Holy Quran. Yes school knowledge is important, but it never aims to reach a highly advanced civilization. This last peace of information is true as the first key to advance is by maintaining our morals and ethical values. Maintaining peace, wisdom, and mind development cannot be done by studying a text book from school. Knowing about the universe cannot be achieved by learning astronomy.
Sharing religion is peace. Muslims are obligated to share their religion with the whole world which is the same religion of Christianity and Judaism. Off course people might see that in a different way, and it’s because the wars between the governments ( or any kind of authority)and races.
They made religion as the medium that causes all the wars. In fact, God sends one message, with different prophets and practices. Islam is a container of these religions. It tells what mistakes were made by the Christians and and Jews and it provides the solutions. Believe that, many massages in the Quran were directed mainly to Christians and Jews. It’s a book for everyone. Also, it warns Muslims to fall into the same mistakes, and guess what? Muslims did not listen as Prophet Mohammed indicated that Muslims will copy all the mistakes that the people of gospel did. So if this boy tells you a thing about religion that you don’t know about, or don’t understand, or disbelieve, will you say that he is an enemy, a hater, or an ignorant person? This Boy is Muslim and lots of Muslims did draw the wrong conclusions about him already, as there was a conflict of understanding.
This boy learned that nothing better than getting closer to God, and knowing the ways of interaction can open a gateway to a different life that no one can understand. This is the only way to gain real knowledge, power and wisdom. In addition to being successful. This will be a fact after knowing that God is the only one who spreads the blessings equally. This is after knowing that everything was written. This is after knowing that nothing happens unless God say so. So why? This boy knows that he can’t pay back for all the blessings, but trying the best to do so. To be thankful and apologetic to God is a key for a better life. Wishing the best to everyone without asking for a return is the key to a highly advanced civilization.
What to share? Who is sharing lies? We don’t want to include more painful facts in this message, but the question tells it as every mature person would know the answer. There is no way to guess.
What to share? Sharing love can cause so much pain. Love is saying the truth. Saying the truth generates enemies. So this boy will have enemies, and he will share his enemies with you too. Sharing truth and enemies will lead to achieve the right knowledge, and to eliminate evil from the map.
How to determine that the truth he says is the truth? The evidence from the Books of God and following the legacy of his prophets are indeed the power that a believer may rely on as a proof of the truth. However, there are different chains of studies that indicated what is real and what is incorrect in the books of God, or the talks of the prophets. The only book that has no errors and no one had the ability to change a word from it is the Holy Quran. God explained how this was made, and it’s a miracle that all Muslims agree on. Then comes the Bible. Muslims believe in Christianity and in the Bible, but let’s talk about a point that everyone should agree on including big time priests from Europe. The church agreed to publish four written versions of the Bible 400 years after Jesus. There was more than four versions but it was found that they had many errors and fake information. They new also that there were some contradictions in the approved four versions. The Quran explained this issue too, and a Quran reader shall know all the contradictions in the Bible. Does this change the fact that the Bible is a valuable book? The answer is no. But we say this as an enlightenment and to let people know that it’s important to understand what to go with and what not to go with from the Bible. Same with the Torah but the Torah has bigger issues. Same with the Hadith of prophet Mohammed, but with this last one, Muslims did design a methodology to distinguish the right Hadith from the incorrect ones by tracing the chains of narrations. So This boy defends for these books, and perhaps he reads the Bible more than many Christians. So please do take this as a message of love, and it’s ok to disagree. Respect to accept the other side.
So there is an Islamic etiquette in delivering such information. Muslims tell what is in the Quran. They also tell what did prophet Mohammed say, or any other prophet. The also, include stories from the Bible and the Torah too. And they aim to provide a guid in knowing what is a perfect match with the Quran and what is not. Muslims share this knowledge with love, and if some one disbelieved, it’s also okay as long as all is living in harmony, respect and loyalty.
Lastly, does it matter if this boy was real or fiction? What is the difference between fiction and reality any way? The message was delivered whether this boy was fiction or real. What happened to the boy was an example of a real time experience. So the experience was real, but was the boy real. Do we need to justify?
This boy can be any blessed person who saw the light from God. If we limit this boy to a one person, this may cause negativity without satisfying the purpose of writing all of this. The whole subject is talking about equality in a way, and therefore, we are all the same. Same blood, should have one faith, one system and one God. That’s how we advance. Perhaps this unification may not apply to the whole world, but the aim is to spread it in a big chunk of it.
So why do we justify when we justify? The answer is not to provide an excuse. The reason is to share an experience so you do it. To share a thought as they are contiguous. To justify so you believe the words we write with a solid proof in the background. To justify so we void repetitive question, or answer the shy who refused to ask. Now did you have all these conclusions for you fundamental answers to the questions that you picked? The questions that were used as a hook for this write up
After all, remember that God is a forgiver and reaching heaven is the ultimate reason of us staying on earth temporarily.
45. The righteous (will be) amid gardens and fountains (of clear-flowing water).
46. (Their greeting will be): “Enter ye here in peace and security.”
47. And We shall remove from their hearts any lurking sense of injury: (they will be) brothers (joyfully) facing each other on thrones (of dignity).
48. There no sense of fatigue shall touch them, nor shall they (ever) be asked to leave.
