Concept of Hereafter
Many people wonder as to how a person with a scientific and logical temperament, can lend any credence to the belief of life after death. People assume that anyone believing in the hereafter is doing so on the basis of blind belief.
This concept has been given to mankind by the God in his book “Qur’an Kareem” which has more than a thousand verses containing scientific facts. Some have been discovered by the science and others will be discovered as the science advances.
Concept of peace, human values and good or bad is useless without the concept of hereafter. One thing or act can be bad in the eyes of a person but could be good or beneficial for another one.
Every human being wants justice: Do the human law provide justice to all human kind?
The people who do injustice should be punished: Can we punish a murderer of 100 people as compared to a murderer of a single person?
This life is a test for hereafter: If it is not, then why few people are wealthy and enjoying luxuries of life and why few are poor and don’t even have enough food to eat. Life is a test for both of them.
Final justice on the day of judgment. No human law can provide 100% justice to all human kind. There will be definitely a day of judgment for final justice. We all are in examination hall and we will be given result on the day of judgment.
When it is dead sure that there will be a day of judgment and life after death, one should follow the religion instead of passing life in his own style.
All religions basically exhort mankind to be righteous and eschew evil. but Islam goes beyond that. It guides toward practical ways of achieving righteousness and eliminating evil from our individual ad collective lives. Islam takes into account human nature and the complexities of human society. Islam is Guidance from the creator himself. Therefore, Islam is also called The “Deen-ul-Fitrah” (the natural religion).
According to Muslims the only true religion on earth is ISLAM. Everyone has its own choice to find out truth but one must not decide anything just seeing the followers only. Rather one must study sacred scripture to find out truth. ISLAM is for the whole mankind so whoever accept it and follow it will get success. Accepting is not enough till we follow it in true spirit.
We should hurry to ask Allah (swt) for forgiveness and start following true religion before the end of our life. Life is too short(who knows tomorrow we will get up from sleep or not!).
