In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
"A fact of this world life" is an expression, which is unknown to the majority of us. One whohas knowledge of this life is in fact the smartest and the most successful of all people. On theone hand, worldly life is a fact that nobody can deny. On the other hand, it is extremelydifficult to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of it.
Almighty Allah(S.W.T.) poses us a basic question:
"What! did you then think that had created you in vain and that youshall not be returned to us?" (Al-Qur'an 23:115)
In this Divine question two points are clear: One is that "life is a fact" and the other is that "ithas a purpose". In many places the Holy Qur'an has made this point clear by giving usexamples of past historic events. The wealth of Shaddad and Fir`aun (Pharaoh), and personsof such categories, perished. They left this world ;with nothing but their own deeds and theyare tasting the punishment for the evils they committed.Some of the verses of the Holy Qur'an have make it clear that this worhtless world is nothingbut play. For example:
"And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and play: and as for the next abode, that most surely is the life - did they but know! "(Al-Qur'an 29:64) I think we should strive hard, by using whatever meansand sources we have, to understand this worldly life.
HADITH AL-QUDSI (Sacred Hadith) is one of; the sources which opens up our eyes, shakesus up, and awakens us so that we may think. For example:"O Son of Adam! obey Me to the extent of your deeds towards Me. Disobey Me to the extentof your ability to tolerate the Fire of Hell. Collect wealth in this world according to the length of your stay here. Collect for the Hereafter (Aakhirah) according to the length of your stay here.Do not think that your death is far and that the Bounties (you receive from Allah) will alwaysbe available, or that your sins are hidden." (Al-Hadith Al-Qudsi, Hadith No.13)The materialistic world has dragged humankind into a race of unlimited desire. This madsearch for pleasure, excitement, new sensations and the accumulation of material wealth,results in a disgracerful life. This drive to experience more and more is the direct and rootcause of all family and social problems and manifests itself in genocide, homicide, substanceabuse, child abuse and violence towards women. The so-called "civilized" countries of our time have failed to understand this, although they possess sophisticated weapons to defendtheir values as well as accurate computers. In my view, Islam is the only solution to all of these problems. Not only does it teach that we should be achievers in this worldly life, but it
