the recognition of the Islam Islamic Studies 113- the Islam and the religion7Sharia 7

In the name of God, the Compassionate and the Merciful and the Compassionate

In relation to the philosophy of the Sharia and the divine rules such as prayer, fast, Hajj, admonishing fellow believers to do right and to avoid sin, khoms, zakat and so on, it is appropriate that an important point should be mentioned; when he or she chooses a religion, he or she should accept its rules and regulations because each religion is defined along with its rules and regulations. Therefore, if someone benefits from the name of the religion and calls himself or herself with the name of the religion, he or she will be called with the name of the religion apparently. In fact, we cannot call him or her a religious person. For example, a real Muslim is a person that not only accepts the Islam, but also accepts its rules and tries to act all of the rules. He or she is like a person that has entered an organization and has been evaluated. Therefore, he or she should accept its rules and should not act and do anything  with his or her desires. Before he or she entered there, he or she did not have to obey its rules because its rules did not include him or her. But when he or she accepts to work there, if he or she uses its benefits and advantages, he or she should respect its rules and follow them. If he or she is more organized and conscientious and works more than a due time, he or she is granted more reward. But if he or she is not dutiful in his or her job, he or she will be fired after several warnings and will not use from its benefits anymore.

 

It is true about the acceptance of the religion. If he or she acts the rules of the religion and is faithful to them, he or she will achieve whatever has been promised in this world and in the doomsday. If he or she lives in the world in a decent way, he or she will be appreciated and glorified and will be qualified to be extolled according to whatever he or she has done and in the doomsday, he or she will be sent to heaven. This matter is what the prophet had  announced. For example, if he or she fulfills the obligations, gives up doing haram (prohibited) things, does mostahab (recommended) actions and avoids doing makroohat (disproved but not forbidden things), he or she will be more rewarded and will be satisfied by the people entering heaven. In contrast, if he or she is not faithful to them, he or she should not expect to be rewarded. In addition, he or she is not qualified to be rewarded and this point, that people will be rewarded or punished based on their deeds is very important. If he or she is a really decent person and his or her life has been like decent persons, he or she will be sent to heaven along with the Imams and prophets and if  someone is an adulterer, a polytheist and a hypocrite, he or she will not be qualified to be a righteous person in religious parties because his or her heart and mind are dark and are deprived of spiritual, mental, thought, belief, moral and practical health. Hence, he or she will be behaved based on his or her deeds. In fact, he or she has a close relationship with his or her beliefs, morals and actions and heaven and hell are according to the actions of the beliefs of people. It is completely clear that heaven and hell will reveal facts and no one will be able to deceive and to lie to others. But a person will be in a situation that not only will the earth, the sky, the angels and the prophets witness the deeds of persons and attest against them, but also the organs of persons will attest against them and will talk according to the permission of God

                  

وَ قالُوا لِجُلُودِهِمْ لِمَ شَهِدْتُمْ عَلَيْنا قالُوا أَنْطَقَنَا اللَّهُ الَّذي أَنْطَقَ كُلَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ وَ هُوَ خَلَقَكُمْ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ[1]

 

Hence, a person should act in a way that she or he can benefit from the promises of God and can get rid of the tortures of God. Of course, there are a lot of matters in this area that should be discussed in their own part. It seems that reviewing the holy verses of Zelzal Surah will reveal a lot of facts. Especially this verse which states

 

يَوْمَئِذٍ تُحَدِّثُ أَخْبارَها[2]

 

The end of this verse refers to the intention of an action whether it is good or bad

 

فَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقالَ ذَرَّةٍ خَيْراً يَرَهُ وَ مَنْ يَعْمَلْ مِثْقالَ ذَرَّةٍ شَرًّا يَرَهُ[3]

 Hence, what is important to know is that if we act to the  sharia and the divine rules correctly, it will be beneficial for individuals and the society and it will have the happiness of the world and the doomsday for them. Unfortunately, due to the lack of recognition or superficial recognition towards the sharia of the Islam, some people attribute features to the Islam that are in contrast with the nature of the Islam that is selfless towards the exalted God. Of course, this lack of recognition is true about the Gods of Ibrahim because some people consider difference among the God of Musa, Isa and the prophet of the Islam, His excellency Muhammad (peace of Allah be upon him and his descendants) whereas all of the prophets such as these great prophets have talked about an absolute fact and a single God that is powerful, elite and sagacious. All creatures benefit from his infinite mercy. People that are also guided in the right path foster their talents and benefit from infinite mercy devoted for righteous people. Hence, we need to be alert enough and try to be in the path of bliss and happiness with correct recognition of the Islam and with fulfilling obligations and responsibilities.
