The creation of man
It has unanimously accepted by various scriptures and even science that the universe has created long before the creation of man. He administrates and conducts it through numerous malaeks, known as faresta in Farsi and angel in English, and also similar to the god and goddess worshipped by the Indians, Romans and Greeks as well. Allah has conducted the whole universe disciplined with these numerous angels who are actually natural power without free will. The angles do their job ordained by Allah for them properly without deviating a little bit. Actually any deviation is impossible as these natural powers have no free will power. The gravity is an angel for an instance. The lord creator Allah has ordained it to retain throughout attracting everything. He continues its duty since the creation of the universe and will persist till end. He has not allowed taking rest even for a fraction while. Different religion (better to say code of life) considers different natural powers as their god and goddess. As Barun is the god of air, Surjadev (Sun) is a god in Hindu, Neptune is the god of ocean in Greek, Vulcan is the god of fire in Roman, similarly in Islam there have specific angels for fire, air, water, power etc. like the gravity. Another resemblance is, all religion (code of life) considers them as uncountable in number. It is usual, because the number of natural creation is numerous as well.
In different Indian religion the numbers of the angel are assume to be 330 millions. The Christians also considers such a huge extent of numbers. Priest scholar of 13th
century, Albertus Magnus has expressed calculating that the correct number of the angels are 39 crore, 99 lack, 20 thousand, and four (how he calculate it, Allah knows), approximately 7 crore higher than that of Hindus. In the religion sinto of Japan consider their number as 80 lacks. In meraj (the visiting event of the messenger of Allah, Mohammad sm. with Allah.) the messenger of Allah had seen thousands of angels enters gradually in the mosque baitul mamur to prays (salah) to Allah. To describe their number, the messenger of Allah has said, one who has prayed there one time will never find further chance to pray there i.e. they are numerous in number. (Hadis- sabet al butany from Anas (ra.), moslem, meskat)
. For the time immemorial the creator Allah has been administrating and conducting His vast creation through his countless malaeks (angels). Once He wished to create man. Why he wished so, I don’t know. Also I don’t know whether anybody knows the answer. He has hinted a little bit Himself in the holy Qur’an. He has said- “I haven’t created it for passing time”. (Sura, al-mulk: 02
). It is obvious. Since time is His creation, then no question arose to pass time for him. Again Allah has said, he would like to test us whether we serve the good deed. (Sura, al-mulk: 02)
In a word, Only He knows why He has created man, the best and worst creation of all.
(Sura, at-teen: 4-5).
There have no way to deny that he had created. Describing the period of creating man, He has said in holy Qur’an that, ‘when He wished to create man, He calls all of the angels saying them I am going to create my representative on the face of the earth. They reply, what need to create Your agent? They will create fasad, unrest and safakuddima on earth. (Sura, al-bakarah: 30).
The secret of creating man is dormant in the speech of the angels. Therefore, let’s take a pause to understand the matter very well.
According to Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, one son of Adam (as.) killed by the other. It was the opening of bloodshed on earth which is ongoing till today. These two i.e. unrest and bloodshed is the grand problem of the mankind till creation. The specific words used by the angels are “fasad” which means injustice, unrest, turmoil, anarchy etc. and another word is “safakuddima” that means bloodshed. The summarized meaning of which is, man will be in unrest and bloodshed to be Allah’s representative. Amazing fact is their forecast has absolutely come true. Begging from the murder of the son of Adam (as.), these unrest, turmoil, anarchy, injustice, iniquity as well as bloodshed never stops for a while and also these are the biggest crisis of mankind since then. All the efforts of human being in this sector have lost into vain. This is not the last; these are the specific problems of the mankind that shove its existence on earth under question.
Here the matter to be focused that, the maleyeks (angels) did not argue against the creation of man that, they will not go to temple, mosque, church, pagoda, synagogue for pray to You and do not keep fasting as well rather said creates unrest, iniquity, dispute, and bloodshed on earth. It clearly means that the major problem is the second one. Does Allah not understand the malayeks? Of course, He is, nevertheless He created man disregarding the objection of malayeks. In the holy Qur’an the creator Himself has informed us some basic and fundamental facts on the creation of man. One of them is about the degree of gravity, prestige and affection to this new creation. Allah has created the whole universe including the angles with just single word Kun, be. (Just said and happened)(Sura, al-bakarah: 119, An-nahal:40, Yasin:82)
but has created the man i.e. Adam(as.) with His own hands (Sura, Saad:75) and then breathed into from His soul. (Sura, Hijar: 29). Only this single thing is enough to realize that how much gravity, prestige and affection He has added with this creation. Very important fact to note, Allah has used the word ‘from my soul’, directly the creator’s soul. That means all the attributes and qualities of the creator has come to man. Even the free will power also. Indicating this Allah has said, “I have submitted my amanat to man.” (Sura, Ahjab: 72). None of the creation including malayeks do not belong to these attributes of Allah. All of those are running following the rules of Allah. These are knows as natural system. No one is able to deviate a hairs split from His rules. Because they have not provided free will power to do so. Only Allah has the free will power to do whatever and whenever He likes. When Allah has breathed his soul into man, all His attributes with free will power has come in. All the creation frightened to accept the amanat of Allah i.e. His soul rather than man; with which he has proved himself the injustice and foolish. (Sura, al-ahjab: 72). Before submitting the soul of Allah, man was just usual one of the numerous numbers of creations. When he breathed into from the soul of the creator just then has converted as a unique one. He has become the representative of the greatest creator with all of His attributes including every power.
Difference remains only in case of degree of power. The power man provided with was extremely little. Let’s consider a drop of water of ocean for explain the matter. If you analyze a drop of water collected from ocean, its physical and chemical properties and composition will similar as the oceanic water, but it can’t make a devastating storm, can’t submerge a ship as well. Again if you fire up a candle form the sun, it will contain all the properties of sun’s fire but can’t be able to heated up and enlighten planets like the sun. Nevertheless, the flame of the candle is similar as the sun.
Secondly, the creator has made this new creation learn the name of everything. (Sura, al-bakarah:31). That means, Allah has teaches them about all the creation, their properties, functions, working method etc. in a word, science. The science on which, all the creation has based on. This is making us understand that, Man will achieve the knowledge of every creation of the universe. Man is now conversant on more of the creation in comparison to the number of thousand years before and obviously this number will increase in far future. Allah asks the malaeks whether they know about all creations, but they don’t. (Sura, al-bakarah: 32) The reason, I mentioned earlier, they are only a natural power, and they have not the talent to alter as they commanded to do. Thirdly, calling the malayeks, Allah has commanded to sajda, prostrate them before Adam. They all obey Allah except iblis(Satan). (Sura, al-bakarah: 34)What it means? It means, the malayeks obeyed Adam as the great and superior due to bearing the soul of Allah which is absent in them. Secondly, Allah has employed all the natural powers for the service of man. Fire, water, air, electricity, magnet, soil etc. billions of malayeks are under this job. Only iblis disobeyed Allah and denied to prostrate before Adam.
One question may arose here, if the malayeks are natural power without free will, belong to them how iblis become able to disobey Allah? Answer is to say is, all the malayeks are created of light, except iblis who is made of fire. In fact iblis is a gin rather than malayek. He rose to the stage of malayeks through austere ascetic practice and worshiping. Though he has no free will power but due to being created with fire, still arrogance was present in him which he could not wipe up even after austere ascetic worshipping. His superciliousness thrive and grow just when was commended to lay prostrate before soil made Adam. He threw challenge to Allah, if you (Allah) let me the power to enter in the mind of human being I will prove, they will refuse you. As I have obeyed you as the Rab- the maintainer till now, they will not. Allah accepted the challenge and also gives him the power to enter in body, mind, and brain of human being to persuade him to be disobedient. (Sura, al- bakarah: 36, an-nisa: 119)
The onward history may describe in short as; Allah has created Hawa (as.), the wife of Adam (as.) and allow them to live in the paradise just forbidding one thing. Getting the permission of Allah, iblis has entered to the mind of Adam, Hawa (as.) and instigating them to disobey the particular prohibition of Allah. As a result, Allah has banished them form the heaven to the earth for a certain period of time i.e. till the dooms day. (Sura, Al- Bakarah:36). He has further said, “I must send guide for you.” (Sura, Al- Bakarah: 38).
Here question may arise, if man has provided the soul of the creator himself then why they need to be guided? Simply the answer is, he has all the attributes and powers of the creator but with very small quantity. (Sura, Bani israyl:85). Man could create a code of life if he had enough knowledge on how the universe has created and how it moves away. But he doesn’t. Secondly, iblis continually instigates him.
Moreover, the vital reason is the challenge of iblis. Iblis challenged Allah that he will make the whole mankind rejecting the code of life form Allah and it’s inevitable outcome will be injustice, hostilities, and bloodshed.
Sending the system of life time to time for the mankind through a series of messengers, Allah has said, “Obey Me as the only lord, director and lead your individual, collective and national life in accordance to My system of life, then remains no fear of you. (Sura, Al-Bakarah: 38).
No fear of what? No fear of fasad and safakuddima, i.e. unrest and bloodshed and finally no fear of the hell. The code of life, system of life sent by Allah time to time, named as peace by Allah Himself, which is known as Islam in Arabic term. That means, “When the system of life by Allah will be accepted and established, the outcome will be peace; personal, familial, collective, national level peace, i.e. Islam. Instead of it will create unrest, injustice, inequity, man to man conflict, and bloodshed which was the estimation of the malayeks or angles against the creation of man.” Therefore, the code of life sent by Allah several times starting form Adam (as.) to Mohammad (sm.) introduced with the same name, Islam-peace.
That is the gist of all. Rest of the works of this system of life like praying (salah), fasting (saom) and many more are just pertinent, minor deeds. Prove is, Today all of the follower of different religion are performing all of those pertinent works with enough heartiness and devotion. Outcome is unceasing accession of unrest, fighting, conflict, bloodshed neck and neck let alone peace. Not only this, now the existence of the mankind on the way of destruction. Not only this, the invention of the dreadful weapons has pushed the whole mankind under threat.
If the whole mankind under different religion put their devotion forward to worship and perform rituals perfectly, even then the worldly unrest, iniquity, bloodshed will not stopped rather increase with the same pace of today. Because the total populace of the world is now leading their life with their own political, socio-economic systems rejecting the code of life sent by Allah through His long chain of messenger i.e. they have adopted the minor eliminating the root. That is the reason, for what the malayeks of have not argued against creating man that they won’t worshipping, fasting, and not celebrating rituals as well, they has said that they would be in unrest, iniquity, injustice and bloodshed.
That means the basic question is to live the whole mankind in peace, Islam not the relevance of worshipping. So, I have mentioned earlier, it is necessary to comprehend the argument of the malaeks against creating the man very well; otherwise we will fail to realize the aim of creating man and the magnitude of human life as well.
Allah has sent His representative or vicegerent Adam (as.) to the earth with his wife Hawa (as.). Said- “Go, and propagate there. I must provide the system of life to avoid injustice, iniquity, bloodshed on earth”. (Sura, Bakarah:38) That means, Allah Himself has taken the responsibility of compiling such a system of life that can inevitably ensure peace. It is very easy to understand, Allah will never fail to His responsibility. At first He has given the code of life to the very first man Adam (as.). We can assume, this code of life was short and concise because it encompasses a little populace-Adam (as.), his offspring, and his grand-child. Surely the problems around them were also limited. Then propagating continues according to the decree of Allah. The offspring of Adam (as.) gradually spread over the earth with increasing numbers and becoming isolated to each other. But the creator had not forgotten His responsibility for a moment while. He has continuously provided code of life to different secluded communities of bani adam (offspring of Adam) through messengers to survive in peace (Islam) rather than unrest, anarchy and bloodshed. Meanwhile, Iblis has not also forgotten his challenge, promise. He has put all of his possible effort forward to instigate bani Adam to reject the code of life of Allah or at least to lead astray from it, the unavoidable upshot of which will be unrest, injustice, and bloodshed. Allah has sent a new messenger to a community to amend the code of life where iblis has succeeded to
Now the issue to be considered is, the code of life that Allah has sent in different place and community of the earth, what it basically is? Observation exposes, the fundamental and vital base of this is, Confess and belief on Allah as the only lord, actually not as the only lord but also the complete lord of the earth. To mean this, Allah uses the word “Elah.”.
Today the word Elah is translated with ‘he who is to be worshiped’. This translation does not bear the actual meaning and gravity of the word Elah. Reason is, all of the religion of the world have almost perverted. One perversion of them is to exclude the national issues as political, economical systems from collective life and confine them only in personal or individual life; and formal worshipping is important one of them. Allah has not used the word Elah with an aim to mean so. He used it to mean-“He, whose rules and orders can’t be violated.” In the period of every messenger from the Adam (as.) to Mohammad (sm.), the foundation word ever was “La elah ellallah.” i.e. ‘there is none to be obeyed other than Allah’, and then added the name of the messenger of that time. He has never used another word as an alternative of elah. He may use ‘la Rab (guardian) ellallah ’ or ‘la malek (lord) ellallah.’ or many other words as well, form His 99 names, but He never uses the alternative of the word elah with a series of millions of messengers. Why? Because, it is only He, without whom, others orders and inhibition will not accepted.
It means, if anybody obeys some rules of Allah and some rejects then Allah will no more remains his Elah. It is utterly logical. Because, it is very common sense, “A code of life that will exempt mankind from unrest, iniquity, anarchy, war, bloodshed, will must be emphasized on political, socio-economical issues.” That’s why Allah has set the foundation of the code of life sent by the messengers is to obey Him as the one and only Elah, the director.
Allah has emphasized this foundation speech i.e. Monotheism, tawheed- the sovereignty of Allah in such a manner that from Adam (as.) to Mohammad (sm.), it was put forward with the same claim, not to obey others, rather than Allah as the lord. If do, I won’t forgive anybody and if just don’t do it, I won’t punish for any sin and crime. (Sura, Nisa: 48, 110, 116). Apparently, it looks as the flattering claim/demand of an arrogant, supercilious dictator. Is it actually is? When we look at the cosmos, the extensive creation around us, an impossibly large sight has appeared in front of us. Only the Milky Way or Galaxy where our solar system is present, is so large that the scientists do not success to find out our specific location yet in it.
Nevertheless it is only one of the galaxies out of numerous numbers. Till today the boundary of the universe is unidentified. The far most thing that man able to find out till now is a Quasar of twenty billion light years away. A few days ago its existence has traced through an observatory of Australia. If anything runs with a speed of a hundred eighty six thousand and four hundred mile per second then it will take twenty billion years to reach in that quasar. What a tremendous distance? Out of imagination and out of idea as well. Nobody knows how much more creations still present after the quasar. It is hard to find out that very solar system where we are present in the gigantic huge creation let alone our earth. What need of the creator of this vast creation, to such a great extent, to obtain the acceptance of His supremacy to a smallest organism like man? Why it does matter to Him (matter of headache) if we obey other as the lord other than Him? What will be His problem if man makes a way of life to lead themselves?
Fact is, it doesn’t matter to Him. He knows, if man obeys manmade way of life rejecting Him, the obvious outcome will be the demolition of His very loving and own made creation with unrest and bloodshed on earth. So, He wants man to establish and obey His code of life to survive in unlimited peace and security.
It is common sense if man doesn’t belief and accept Allah as the only lord creator then no question arose to obey the rules provided by Himself as the complete code of life. That’s why such immense emphasis has put forward for the tawheed, (Monotheism) sovereignty of Allah. It is the scrimmage of love from the creator to save the loving creature form unrest, torture, injustice and bloodshed. The foundation of all the code of life, religion from Adam (as.) to Mohammad (sm.) is to obey Allah as the only elah, lord. This is the deen ul kaiema, Traditional Religion (sanatan religion), straight path. It is spontaneous that after accepting Him as the only elah, lord no code of life is acceptable rather than Him. And it is the only demand He logically claimed to man.
Let’s see now, the code of life that the creator sends time to time what actually is? It seems with a close observation that the foundation is the everlasting tawheed i.e. the sovereignty of Allah. Other side was the dos and don’ts obeying which will give an obvious outcome of unlimited peace and security with progress as well in individual, familial, and collective level. Second side is not everlasting rather dependent on time and space. The code of life the lord sent to different communities was logically different in respect to orders depending on time, space, and problem. There have further two more division there, one is of objective and another is of process.
The objective is always the same- living in peace and justice. It will be bloomed in front of us combining all of these four main parts that, the entire subject matter of human life will controlled by the code of life of Allah. Otherwise it could not considered as the code of life for man or if be then incomplete or partial. It will be considered as sherk when anybody obeys any ordinance of others in any facets of life after accept and adopt Allah is the only life director.
Allah has sent different code of life in ages through a series of messengers who is human being like us. Here a problem arises. As the messengers of Allah were similar to us as a normal person, after claim as the messenger of Allah, a very usual question comes out, what is the proof? Anybody may ask, what is the proof that he is claiming as the messenger in sake of Allah not for any personal benefit, leadership, or establish any imaginary theory? No doubt, very logical question. Allah has applied the same provision as He for His messengers. That is Sign. Allah has provided some special sign with the work of His messengers which were well enough to dispel doubts of logical person. So, logically He has given miracle powers to His nabies and rosuls that is absent in normal man. These has introduced as ayat, sign by Him. Now we know it as mojeja, the miracle. When anybody doubts or distrust on the system of life brought by the messenger then he banished all suspicion with that miracles.
Following the same procedure, Allah with His Ruth or love has sent different messengers chronologically to a nation, community when the code of life failed to provide them peace, i.e. Islam due to perverting or rejecting it. (Hadis- from Ebn masud (ra.), Meshkat.) Coming there the new messenger said, “You have perverted the system of life brought by the previous messenger of Allah. Consequently I have been sent with a new system of life.” People of fair intelligence accept the code of life believes him observing his words, works, livelihood, and miracle power.
Some other peoples for the persuasion of Satan denial him and stable on the past perverted din. A new din, code of life has born on earth. In course of time, with the persuasion of Iblis, perversion again took place in that new code of life. As a result the system again have been failed to provide ever desired peace.
Then Allah once again has sent a new rosul i.e. messenger and a din, religion has added to the serial. Thus Allah has sent millions of messengers with an aim to the peace of the mankind. Purpose was always being the same that is the survival of the mankind on earth in complete peace rather than unrest, injustice, war, and bloodshed. Believing the messenger, whenever a community, nation has applied and established the code of life by Allah in national, familial, and individual life, all types of unrest, injustice, fighting, bloodshed stopped. Instead they start living in arcadian happiness and peace. This condition could not have been everlasting, as Eblis was not buttoned-up and still not to be. Tirelessly he has been persuading man, perverts and obsoletes the code of life, consequently man falls into unrest and bloodshed, and still he does the same.
If we have looked back, we see the aspect of Islam sent on earth time to time founded on the sovereignty of Allah, varies in some case which was dependable on space, time. (and vessel). As for example, marriage between siblings was a provision in the Islam of Adam (as.). It was very logical as there was no man on earth other than them. In course of time, the number of populace enlarged, they spread over the earth and that provision was forbidden in the code of life by the messengers onward, as there remains no need to obey it. Similarly, when man starts to invent and gain knowledge on different things, in a word, advanced in logic and intelligence, the code of life sent, updates with the same pace. Every time when men accept the code of life by the messenger of Allah, justice and peace established. Where the nabies i.e. messengers of Allah has denied, the populace declined into unrest, injustice and bloodshed and destroyed in the long run.
Every messenger of Allah has to face the perverted followers of his preceding messenger. Perhaps there remains no necessity to send a new messenger if the previous code of life would have been undistorted.
An idea is necessary here on how these codes of life have distorted. When a messenger succeeded in his work, i.e. his community or race has accepted and established the code of life brought by him, remains in peace and justice. After his earth from the earth, man starts perverting the code of life with the instigation of Satan. The main perversions may sorted out as follows-,
a) The personality, cheering character, miracle power of the messenger has fascinated and enchanted his followers and they showed him infinitive reverence. Many of them love him from hearts. Subsequently after his death, they wished to establish him to a superior position. It is a normal, intrinsic and psychological Occupation of human being to consider as well as represent his beloved on a superior position. Although the messenger of Allah clearly and undoubtedly has said several times, “I am just a man like you. I have been sent with a code of life and some miracle power. So, don’t think me else than a messenger, otherwise it will be a great sin.” But with the instigation of too much fan, and Satan, the followers has considered the messenger as the son of Allah and even in some cases placed him in the position of Allah.
b)After the retirement of a messenger on earth, his followers start, over-analysis with the code of life brought by him. Excessive analysis of anything spoils and destroys it. No exception occurs in case of them. Different viewpoints comes out, followers of each viewpoint gather separately, as a result whole nation divides into different views for and against. Thereafter, inevitably they involved into conflict and finally destroyed.
c)There have other inevitable result of this over-analysis too. One of them is, rough-and-tumble the sequence of directives (or rules and regulations) of the code of life i.e. failed to grade the rules according to their importance, though all included in the same code. Due to over analysis, the top necessary rules on which our life and death (survival on earth) depend, superseded by very unnecessary directives and over do with these as well.
d)Another suicidal result of this over-analysis was confinement of the right to discuss and explain the code of life that sent for the people of all spheres of a nation, to a particularIt was very normal to be so.
As the rules provided for the peoples of all levels of a nation, these was simple to understand for all/simply comprehensible to all. But the analysis, over-analysis of that special group has taken it beyond the cognition of common people. As a result, discussion on the code of life has limited to this very class and subsequently their opinion considers final in all facets of the code of life. These are the hierophant, who has created themselves in every code of life, every religion and the core goal of the code of life destroyed. The whole populace of a nation has engaged them knowing the provision on minute matters of life to the clergymen, and they too with their over interest has invented different enigmatic rules and regulations.
e)Another distortion took place due to vested interest. Though in beginning they have accepted the code of life, when it goes against their vested interest, they have managed the law analyzer (mufti) with tricks and deception to alter the rule in favor of them. Gradually ignoring the key aim, they thought their main duty to practice those trifles subjects.
Every code of life has totally distorted by the combined, collective influence due to the reasons mentioned above. The creator has selected a lively, dynamic, national code of life. With the instigation of Satan it has altered to an aimless, soulless, static, ritualistic subject. Inevitably man again laden into unfair, torture, injustice, and bloodshed. Then again the greatest and most merciful Allah has sent a messenger bringing man back to peace and justice.
There is also a specific reason of sent new messengers except the perversion mentioned earlier. That is the evolution of mankind. Man has slightly advanced in knowledge and science in the meantime of two messengers. Due to surroundings a short variation occurs and different new problems have arisen. So, naturally the code of life changed a bit from the previous system, though the basic truth, the sovereignty of Allah, the seratul mostakim (simple straight path) keeps its face as usual. Variation takes place just in less important matters that are dependent on time and space.
The sum and substance of the new messenger’s invocation without small back and forth depending on space and time is like below:
- 1.You have made the code of life of my preceding messenger meaningless and ineffective in various ways. You have interfered in the book of Allah, distorted it according to your exploitation. You have rough-and-tumble the priority and create unrest with tiny matters. You have even involved into pluralism destroying the sovereignty of the only lord Allah. So the most merciful Allah has sent me to tell you-
- 2.I have admitted the lord you follow and the book sent by Him. (Sura-Al Emran: 3, Al-Anam: 92, 93).
- 3.But you distorted it so much that I have declared it invalid.
- 4.The code of life I brought will have been effective from now.
- 5.Watch/Observe the sign, ayat (verse), miracles to prove myself as the sent of the almighty.
- 6.Admit me as the messenger of Allah, reject the preceding distorted code of life and accept the new one brought by me.
What is the result of this declaration? We see several outcomes during the lifetime of different messengers. Some people have accepted the call of the messenger, some have mistrusted and denied him and remain firm on the previous perverted system. In case of a few messenger a little number of people has responded, others keep up the exploded rituals. In some cases the followers of the former messenger has killed the new messenger came. (Sura: Al-Emran: 181,183). Again it also happened that, after totally rejecting or killing a messenger, many people have admitted and accepted him and established the code of life brought by him.
During every messenger most of the people deep heartedly realized him as the true messenger of Allah. Because he has extraordinary personality, character power and finally the power to do miracles, show ayat (verse), mojeja. Nevertheless some peoples allow him, accept Islam and some denied.
Close observation says, the reason who has accepted the messenger is:
- a)Those who kept their soul more or less exempt from Iblis despite of living in perverted Islam, and thus realized the downfall of the code of life with sorrow but haven’t the power to protect.
- b)General people who were helpless even after being tortured.
- c)Those who haven’t care the unavoidable torture for accepting the call of the messenger of Allah.
And who denied, their cause was-
- a)The clergymen who has thought themselves as the container and the carrier of the code of life. This class is always self-conceited with their knowledge. It was very natural, - because they survive on the contribution and charity of the society, nation and untiringly analyze, over analyze with the law and orders of Islam and provides ordinances to common peoples. Creates different new laws/ordinances with hard labor to prove themselves superior to other priests. In spite of the acrimonious discordance in these priests on different ordinances, they were united in the case of the new messenger. The reason is why, consciously or subconsciously they all were aware that, if the new code of life was been being accepted, their top honored place will be lost. The arrogance which makes them busy with tireless dispute themselves united them again against the new messenger as well. Every messenger of Allah has faced tremendous obstruction and prevention from this priest class.
- b)Those who not belonging to the priest class, were devoted to the religion and performs any sect through and through created by the clergyman.
- c)Some other was who has accustomed with the law and order of the clergyman, and has no wish and time to listen others but the priests. Some of them have realized the messenger as the sent of Allah but owing to the fear of mockery, torture of the deviated society, even familial unrest, they openly denied the messenger.
- d)One more sort of people have not acknowledged and accepted the messenger. These are they who has truly opposed first time thinking the messenger false. Later on when they realize their fault watching the personality, sign, miracle power (mojeza) of the messenger, their propensity hinder them to accept the truth saying that, “Don’t you be a laughing stock accepting the man who has said fraud, lair by you and forbidden to accept by others?” For this apparent loss of face many people denied the messenger and the code of life carried by him even knowing it as the truth.
Though I have presented several different reason of denying a messenger, actually with a profound look we see the root cause is pride, Vanity. For this why every religion pronounced again and again, “He, who has a little bit vanity, will not be liberated.” Pride is one of the foes among six inner foes of man. Amazing fact is, among these six foes/instincts of man only one is present in the almighty Allah. It is pride and He is the only worthy of it not man. Therefore, the punishment of pride is so quick and in the current lifeTo my mind, Vanity is the only strong devilish power to ignore the enlighten truth like daylight.
We discussed on why the messengers has dismounted with different code of life one after another in ages. But it has to keep always in mind, /we have to remember that, though it seems different code of life actually all of these are Islam, sirat-ul-mostakim (the simple straight path), simple to comprehends, everlasting system of life, inevitable outcome of acceptance and establishment of which in individual and collective life is peace and security that Allah wished to provide us.
At present two wrong conceptions are available about Islam. One of this is the religion that the so called Muslims followed, and other religions are named different. But actually all the codes of life from Allah have been provided with the same name Islam, peace; acceptance and activation of which keeps man in peace and happy and rejection of which push to a inevitable outcome of unrest, bloodshed, injustice; Political and socio-economic injustice that the malayeks (angles) have said about.
Second concept (akida) is, the name of surrender to Allah’s wish/will is Islam. It is also wrong. The cause is, if Allah wills, each and everybody of the earth believe Him instantly. There will remain no unbeliever, doubter, moshrek or monafek (insincere). (Qur’an: Sura: Al-an’am:35, Yunsu:100). So, it is not. Allah has breathed into man from His own soul, that means, He has provided man the power of rationality, intellect, knowledge and above all the free will power, and also instructs them the way to live in peace without clash, bloodshed through the messengers. After that, He only observes who obeys him and who is not.
Therefore it is not Islam to surrender to Allah. The outcome of accepting and establishing the code of life by Allah is called Islam. If man would be known about all the rules and regulations with which the universe created and moves forward, then it could possible for him to make such a code of life that provide him peace. But man doesn’t know it, he has not provided with such extent of knowledge. So, the creator, Allah has instructed him the way, the code of life, establishing of which will provide the desired peace. He has guided through series of messengers like Monu/Nooh (AS.), Krishna (AS.), Judhistir/Idris (AS.), Ebrahim (AS.), Moses (AS.), Isa (AS.), and the last messenger Mohammad (SM.). (It the result of my research that Monu, Krishna, Judhistri as. were the messengers of Allah. It is my personal point of view; I force nobody to accept it.) This Islam doesn’t mean that I won’t kill any creature, if anybody thieves my coat, I will give him my cloak.
The populace/religion that propagates this lesson is more than other religions of the world. But at present the whole mankind involves in highest unrest and bloodshed ever in the history. Not only these, the followers of that doctrine have killed 1.5 billions of people through 2 world wars in the last century, demolish two cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki including millions of people, and now going to destruct the whole mankind with nuclear weapons.
Allah has sent His messengers in every place, communities, and nations with the code of life for the mankind to live in peace other than unrest, injustice, and bloodshed. (Qur’an: Sura: An-Nahal: 36). A portion of the mankind has accepted and established it and the others has denied. Those who accepted it, their political, economical system, i.e. every systems of the society have been moved in accordance to it. It was not only the source of all rules and regulations of the society but also it accepted as the only law, no other rules were acceptable out of this code of life. Due to different cause (these causes have mentioned earlier) the code of Allah has altered and used after its wrong explanation. But even those faulty and tort laws have to use under the level of the guise of that code of life. It was not possible to activate them under the level manmade. He who has read the book at a glance ignoring the history of the earth even they couldn’t deny that, human society is always ruled with the laws of religion.
Whenever and wherever a messenger has established a religion or code of life, the monarch ruled there with those laws, nothing else. The wise and clergyman have explained those directives and objectives of rules and the monarch or ruler have brought those laws into force. If laws out of the religion tried to circulate, the society never accepts, if need they raised to rebellion. Let’s consider West Asia for an instant. Before the Jews, laws of different divinity like Aman or Ra were on going there. Even those are the result of the religion by the messenger of Allah that has been perverted. After establishing the tawheed, the sovereignty of Allah again, by the messenger Ebrahim (AS.), this sent deen (code of life) was in force as the law of the nation Jew, as long as they were in middle asia. Let’s come to India. Study the history including the ramyan and mahabharat. It will clear before you that the governor governs according to the scripture, i.e. it was the constitution of them. The scripture based constitution, the directives of which (constitution) used by the bramyan clergyman and the responsibility to conserve and bring it into force were placed on the Khatriya monarchs. It was out of the ability of the monarch or ruler to practice any orders and directives in against of that constitution. Same was the condition of Europe. The state ruled by the king according to the instruction of pope. No king can disobey the order of pope, it do then he falls in the sufferings of unlimited adversity. Finally to say, nothing is accepted anywhere of the world as the source of law other than religion.
Question may arise, if it is the fact, then how come the provision of worshipping of statue against the sovereignty of Allah? How even the democracy of Greeks born in? To get the answer of these questions, just look back to the passage where I mentioned about the perversion of deen. One of those is, though they verbally admitted the unfading sovereignty of one Allah, de facto they worships more than one sovereign with the provocation of Iblish and for convenience as well. But my opinion is,- even the provision of worshipping more than one sovereign has also come into being under the level of the code of life of Allah and His messenger. The experiment done by the Greeks 25 thousand year back was momentary and limited within a small city. Further there hasn’t any proof that, it has detached of religion. Rather the artistry, statue of gods, temples etc. all the vestige found is the evident of strong religious influence. For the sake of argument let that experiment with democracy was detached of religion, even then it would occupy a tiny portion in the thousand years of history of religions.
If we put together the speech I discussed earlier, a vivid picture appears in front of us. That is, if we start from the creation of man, considering the whole earth as background, we see, the first man Adam (as.) with his offspring survives on earth in peace obeying the code of life of Allah. Iblish, according to his promise tries man to deviate from that code of life, and instigate them to break the laws. Iblish has made killed Hable (son of Adam, as.) by his brother Kable. When that code of life perverted enough due to break several rules, Allah sent another messenger. Some respond to the new messenger’s call and accept the new system, and some remains firm in the old deen dismounted on the messenger Adam (AS.). Such a way, creates two deens, two religions two code of lives. Meanwhile the propagation of man runs onward. Gradually, the offspring of Adam (as) spread over the earth. Everywhere of the earth, where they settle down, the sent of Allah, i.e. messengers comes with the deen-ul-kayema, sanatan deen, (the only universal, true and unchanged code of life). The purpose was all the same to live only and peace and happiness rather than unrest and bloodshed. Simultaneously different messengers were present in different places over the earth. One may in a corner of China, one in South America, one in Europe, one may in middle Asia, one in any corner of India.
Allah hasn’t forgotten His promise for a while. Time flows away, messengers have been going away giving the system of life, and the Satan has made those distorted and ineffective through instigating man. Then the messengers come again with a new system of life and been created a new religion. Most of it has lost before. They has lost and also the code of life brought by them. If we look back, we see the Islam brought by them. We can see it but in distorted and obscure form due to the trespass of man.
It is the actual past of man. Many have explained the history from different point of view. But the acceptance and denial of truth, non-stop conflict of justice and injustice, tugging or drag and pull of man with the soul of Allah and Iblish individually and collectively is the actual past of man till Adam (AS.) to present. It is not only the past; but also the future is undoubtedly the same. No intermission, no deviation, caused, causing and will cause into it in far future. Different philosopher provides different explanation of history including the class discrimination struggle of Karl Marks. None of those is completely true; it could hardly a partial true and a partial true of too little extent. If ever the struggle of vanishing class discrimination of Karl Marks ends (if even the dream of Karl Marks implemented), then both the history and explanation of Marks will be stunted and dumb. The same thing is considerable for other cases as well. The explanation that is limited within a time limit that is past, can’t be a complete explanation. Alike to the history, the explanation of it should be the same till the final time.
