any people today are looking for a way to establish a way of life that willbring them contentment, inner certainty and peace. Some of these seekersbelieve they will find the happiness and peace of mind they are lookingfor in religions such as Hinduism or Buddhism. Many people have been influenced bythese eastern religions because of their aura of mystery and mysticism, and because theymake use of techniques such as meditation, and because of the unusual attitudes, dress,manner of speech and religious practices of those who follow them. However, thesereligions espouse many beliefs and practices that conflict with reason and logic.The belief in karma is one such characteristic of these religions that are currentlyattracting interest in our countries. Although it encourages people to adopt certainpositive moral qualities, the philosophy of karma also contains several erroneous andsuperstitious beliefs. It is not possible for these superstitions, which form the basis of thebelief in karma, to become a way to freedom for humanity or to bring people genuineinner certainty and peace of mind. On the contrary, they cause even greater spiritualconfusion.The way to ensuring real happiness and peace of mind in this world is the religion ofIslam and its source, the Qur’an which our Lord, Allah, the One and Only Lord of theuniverse, chose for humanity in order to restore the truths previously revealed toProphets and Messengers among all peoples on earth but forgotten and corrupted tosome extent almost everywhere.This book deals both with those aspects of the belief in karma that concern good ethicalpractices that accord with the teachings of the Qur’an, and with those erroneous aspectsthat accord neither with the Qu’ran, nor with human reason and nor with humanconscience.
