Islam and Life: What a Perfect Confluence! And What a Perfect Choice! [Quote 408]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Islam and life: What a perfect confluence! What a perfect combination, I mean.

And, if you ask me, what a perfect choice!

Let me explain.

For those wanting to know what Islam is, let me ask them a very different question: What is it you want most out of life?

For, Islam is all that life is and more – much, much more.

I mean, tell me all that you seek, or need, from life. And I will show you how Islam offers you all that you seek or want or need from life – and more.

I will even tell you how Islam shows in practical terms – step by step – how you can get what you want.

That is one of the things that never ceases to amaze me about Islam. And, personally, pushes me harder and harder, and closer to closer, to the point of crying out: “No! There is no way this Islam could be from any source other than God.

Therefore, for example, if it is wealth you seek, Islam offers you the worlds. Not one world but two: this world and the next world.

Islam throws open before you the treasures of both worlds. Treasures you never even would suspect exist.

If it is health you seek, Islam opens doors for you of not only physical but of also mental and spiritual health. To the point that you are inexorably driven to conclude: Islam is all about health and wellbeing – your own health, in every imaginable way, and everyone else’s health and wellbeing.

If, on the other hand, it is love you are looking for, Islam guarantees you love in all its purest and most sublime and perfect forms. And in its fullest, richest and most glorious abundance.

For, Islam offers you physical and psychological love and fulfillment through your lawful, pure, filial, spousal and conjugal bonds.

And it offers you the highest and most soaring and abiding forms of intellectual and spiritual love in the form of loving God and his vast, varied and endless creation that envelops you in never-ending and ever-widening concentric circles, both horizontal and vertical.

Islam teaches you to love everything beautiful in this world.

If it is the satisfaction of human achievement you wish, then Islam offers you the joy and comfort, and deep satisfaction, of turning to God formally, and “ritually,” as it is sometimes called, no less than five times a day – and reporting to him, directly and in person, all that you did or did not do, and then hear from him at the same time.

These five-times-a-day formal worship routines are called “Prayers” in English, which in some ways is a misnomer, and Swalaat in Arabic by the Qur’an – God Almighty’s book in human hands.

If it is power you seek, Islam offers to make you the master of the world, nothing less – the master of all you survey, as someone once said, and of much more that most other people can neither survey nor fathom.

Islam beckons you to tap directly into the power of God, speaking through his speech; seeing through his vision; hearing through his hearing; partaking of his infinite knowledge and wisdom; and grasping and holding through his hand.

And Islam offers you the power to fill this entire world with love and justice and compassion and goodness for all of God’s creation.

And it points the way to the power you can have to reach out and touch other human hearts – greater and richer and more indomitable than whom there is no domain on earth – and ignite in them the eternal spark of love of God and his creation and a passion for service for each and every one of them.

So, if your life is about any or all of these things, and more, and if you seek, hunger, pine and strive for any or all of these things, then Islam is the answer to your quest.

In all these cases, Islam is the place for you to turn to. For, Islam is the only earthly door that you can tap, and that will open for you all these wonderful vistas of earthly life.

And of all of life’s hopes, dreams and possibilities, that you may ever want, wish or search for.

That is why I say: Islam and Life! What a Perfect Confluence!

And what a perfect choice!

For you and me and everyone else!

END

Dr. Pasha
