WHAT IS RELIGION?
The Arabic word “Deenwhich is trasnslated as “Religion” in English is used for several meanings:-(a)“Islam; Belief in unity of God; Worship; Obedience; All the acts of worship;piety;”. Allthese meanings are interrelated and are connected with the belief in Creator.(b)“Judgment; Reward or Punishment; Account; Order; Law;”. These meanings areinter-related and point to the belief in the Life-Hereafter.(c)The third group of its meanings is: “Custom; character; Habit; Religion revealed andtraditional both.’”The idea behind the word ( )“deen” is that man, by his nature, has to have a patternof life based upon some spiritual ideals or ideas which we call ‘belief’.It appears that the word is more comprehensive than the English word ‘’Religion’’which puts emphasis on only ‘’Human recognition of super-human controlling power andespecially of a personal god or gods entitled to obedience and worship, effects of suchrecognition or conduct of mental attitude, particular system of faith and worship.”
