On the doorstep of death

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | March 11, 2018

Of all the stages through which a person will have to pass, death is the most certain. It is possible for one not to be endowed with life at all, but one who is alive is sure, also, to die. Everyone who is alive now will be dead sometime in the future. One day the eyes of those who see will fade and their tongues freeze into silence. 

Man should follow universal norms

The Quran says: “Give just weight and measure and do not defraud others of their possessions. Do not corrupt the land after it has been set in order. “ (7:85)

According to this verse, the world made by God is a perfect world, where everything is set in order. Everything in it functions as it ought to. 

Man should follow the law of God

The Quran states: “God created everything, and He has set for each a measure.” (25:2)This principle is startlingly clear in the world of physics, where research has shown everything in this universe to be governed by laws, which every element adheres to with strict determinism. Physicists marvel at the uniformity of the universe.
