A Nation without Religion cannot survive

 

A large majority of people wrongly assume that religion is merely a series of rituals. However, apart from rituals Islam, the true religion, covers every aspect of life and provides a Qur’anic viewpoint and moral values. A sincere believer who is committed to his religion strives to earn mercy, blessings and salvation from Allah by living the high moral values of the Qur’an every moment of his life. He never deviates from righteousness, sincerity, moderation, respectful and merciful conduct é in brief, good morals. That is why societies practicing the moral values of the Qur’an will enjoy benefits desired by everyone.

For instance, a family living by the moral values of the Qur’an will not face many of the problems experienced in today’s societies. But children in our day often rebel against their parents, fail to discriminate between right and wrong, and assume aggressive attitudes. Meanwhile, there are parents who do not feel the necessity to teach their children what is right and good and who do not provide proper guidance. These parents cannot even manage to get along well with each other. There are quarrels and abuse rather than love, respect, understanding and mercy.

But in a home where family members live by the Qur’an, children obey their parents and even avoid complaining, since Allah commands them not to express irritation [2]

But those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined and spread corruption on earth- for them is the curse, and they will have the worst home.  [4]

As described in the verse, a righteous person who is on a straight path, fears Allah, attaches importance to spiritual values, and is enthusiastic to serve his country and nation is sure to bring goodness to his society. That is why it is so important that people learn about the true religion and live by the Qur’an. Allah describes those of elevated morals as follows:

[And they are] those who, if We give them authority in the land, establish prayer and give zakah, and enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. And to Allah belongs the outcome of [all] matters.  [1]  See Surah al-Isra’, 17:23.

[3]  Surah ar-Ra’d, 13:25.

[5] Surah al-Hajj, 22:41
