Reflection Or Action?
It Is Like Asking Food Or Water! [Quote – 883]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Islam is all about reflection and thinking. The Qur’an is clear on that. 

But in life there is something else that is critical. And that is action.

Just like there is no food without water and there is no water without food.

In some ways, Reflection and Thought themselves could be considered action.

But when thought becomes a hindrance to action, or even a substitute for action, then that is not the kind of reflection and thought that Islam commends and encourages.

To a truly meaningful and productive life, that kind of useless thought and purposeless reflection is dysfunctional and counterproductive.

For, the essence of life, and life’s true purpose, is action, functionality, productivity and growth. And empty thought runs directly counter to life’s supreme purpose and ultimate outcome.

That is why Islam’s First Responders — Sahaabah Kiraam and the next generation — were among the most lucid thinkers the world has known.

At the same time, they were also among the world’s quickest and most decisive actors. With them to think and to understand something was to leap to implement it in their lives — and all around them.

That is why in less than 100 years they totally changed the world from the way they found it to the way Islam wanted it to be: Free, Equal, Prosperous and Truly Enlightened.

END
