This world is a field for the next world. How unfortunate and stupid are those who, instead of sowing their seeds, eat them, thus depriving themselves of reaping much fruit. They do not prepare for that day on which siblings will avoid each other, a mother will disavow her children. These people will be wrong in this world and in the next and will repent in the end. He who is reasonable looks on this world only as an opportunity. During this short term, instead of enjoying worldly pleasures, he sows seeds by doing auspicious deeds, the ones which Allâhu ta’âlâ likes, and thus gathers the many blessings communicated in the âyat-i kerîma. Allâhu ta’âlâ will give infinite blessings for the auspicious deeds and worships done in this short life. And He will eternally torment those who do not follow His Prophet and who dislike Islam.
[As a matter of fact, He declares in the hundred and seventysecond âyat of Sûrat-un-Nisâ: “For those who, believing in Hadrat Muhammad, do the deeds useful for the Hereafter, Allâhu ta’âlâ will give what He promises and many other blessings in addition.
He will inflict vehement punishment on those who presume that it is baseness and retrogression to worship Allâhu ta’âlâ, i.e. to obey Hadrat Muhammad. Such people pretend to be great by calling themselves modern and enlightened. There will not be a helper or an owner of power besides Allâhu ta’âlâ to rescue these disbelievers from Hell, who assume themselves to be superior to everybody.”]
He Himself knows why He will torment them eternally. Men’s short brains cannot comprehend it. For example, He commands various punishments for the murders done in the world. No man can understand the reasons, the ultimate divine causes in them. Likewise, He will torment unbelievers eternally for such a transient, short period of disbelief.
If a person attempts to rationalize all the commandments in the Qur’ân al-kerîm and and all the rules of the Ahkâm-i-islâmiyya within the scope of the human mind and tries to make his mind justify them, he has not understood or believed in the highness of the rank of prophethood. We should not read books that try to explain Islam by making it believable through reason and philosophy.
