How belief gets light, becomes legend, fation than lost

2020. március 27. - 19:27


Belief loses its importance and value if four issues happen:

1. If it is going to be huge. Anything what is eager to get big, powerful and wants hegemony, supremacy over others, will be lost. History provides many examples. Dominancy and supremacy are fatal and transient. If a desire like this pollutes thoughts and teachings even thoughts will be lost:

Do they not travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those before them? They were superior to them in strength: they tilled the soil and populated it in greater numbers than these have done: there came to them their apostles with Clear (Signs). (Which they rejected, to their own destruction): It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged their own souls. (Quran 30:9)

2. If it becomes epic of heroes, publishing miracles and works like collection of legends. If a faith is mixed with light popular issues what is more acceptable for human mind, its content will be lost. This is the time when it concentrates only to gain popularity instead of being guidance:

When Our Signs are rehearsed to them, they say: "We have heard this (before): if we wished, we could say (words) like these: these are nothing but tales of the ancients." (Quran 8:31)

3. If we follow the footsteps of our fathers and don’t go forward. We have to give respect for fathers and superiors but their truth worked only in their ages. If we fossilize ourselves in a teaching of a particular age and place what is rooted in man and not in God, traditions and even superstitions can be formed from belief. This is very far from the objective of faith. Our task is not to follow blindly but analyzing at first. We have to discover what is the objective of Allah? What could have happened if Abraham (PBUH) doesn’t step forward and remains at the astrological forecasts of his fathers? What would have happened if Mohammed (PBUH) carried on the pagan unbelieves of Quraish tribe? They were prophets and their lives are guidance for us how to apply belief in our life while adopting it to place and age. We should notice that today some of the biggest propagators of Islam have returned back to the age of Jahiliya under title the Islam and they do what Islam forbids. Faith demands from us pondering, thinking and analysis on individual level based on Quran:

Nay! they say: "We found our fathers following a certain religion, and we do guide ourselves by their footsteps." (Quran 43:22)

4. If faith becomes fashion. If its popularity exceeds its comprehension. If it is reduced to the level of an object what can be sold and consumed. In this case the real motivation is sale and not the stimulation of thinking. This phenomenon is business or political enterprise where belief is manipulated:

O ye who believe! take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion for a mockery or sport,- whether among those who received the Scripture before you, or among those who reject Faith; but fear ye Allah, if ye have faith (indeed). (Quran 5:57)
