His mercy masters His wrath

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Dec 1, 2019

Wrath is an attribute of God, and so is mercy. If someone thinks that God created humans in order to make them experience His wrath, this would definitely be an underestimation of God.

It is more correct to say that the reason why God created man was to make him experience His mercy. It is this understanding that is in accordance with God’s glory.

Lessons from nature

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Nov. 24, 2019

We are a minuscule part of a gigantic universe. We should adopt the same behaviour in our lives as that adopted by all the other components of the Universe. This is the correct natural course, and the secret to our success lies in adopting this course.

Accept death as a test

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Nov 3, 2019, p. 12

“Every human being is bound to taste death”, the Quran (3:185) reminds us. Our deaths have been decided by God. We are brought to life by God’s decision. Likewise, death, too, happens because God wills it so.

Respect all religions

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Oct 27, 2019

There are about a dozen major religions in the world along with thousands of other religions and sects. Differences and disagreements are bound to arise, which lead to conflict. How can we create an atmosphere of unity among the adherents of all these religions, so we can all live in peace and   harmony?

The solution does not lie in removing religion altogether—that would not solve anything. The urge to believe in a greater power is strongly inherent in human nature, and human nature cannot be changed.
