Hereafter: Life After Death
Many people wonder as to how a person with a scientific and logical temperament, can lend any credence to the belief in life after death. People assume that anyone believing in the hereafter is doing so on the basis of blind belief.
There are more than a thousand verses in the Glorious Qur’an containing scientific facts. Some have been discovered by science and others will be discovered as science advances.
The concept of peace and human values or 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 human law provide justice to all humankind?
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 the 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 humankind. There will be definitely a day of judgment for final justice.
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/her own style.
All religions basically exhort mankind to be righteous and eschew evil. But Islam goes beyond that. It guides us towards practical ways of achieving righteousness and eliminating evil from our individual and 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).
we should hurry to ask Allah (SWT) for forgiveness and start following true religion before the last day of our life (who knows tomorrow we will get up from sleep or not!)
May ALLAH (SWT) show us the right path. Aameen
