Welcome to our program, Islam insight. In it we are dealing with some of the most prevailing questions in the minds of the Muslims, especially our new Muslim brothers and sisters.
And in this session, we shall deal
the questions pertaining to one of the significant pillar
pillar of a man the hereafter.
So we may have the first question from you, brother, Islam, Polycom Salama.
Whether I want to ask what is hereafter, and how can read logically prove it?
Hereafter, as the name itself defines, it means life after death. In Islam, there are two lives that we live in this world. And we have the permanent life in the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala He has sent here to this world with a purpose, with a purpose that we have to fulfill in the limited time available. We know the reality of this life that it has to end, one day or the other, we have to depart this world. People, they reject Allah, the people, they reject Koran, people reject Muhammad peace be upon him. people reject so many realities. But this reality that is death, nobody denies it, but the Muslim or otherwise, whether atheist or agnostic, or anyone who has this sense of
understanding, he will never, ever deny the reality of death.
Allah subhanaw taala has given this here after the belief in hereafter as one of the pillars of faith as the pillars of Rhema, without which we will have no Mr.
Jonas Yeoman, aka the man in the Allaha in the Hereafter, is one of the pillars of Islam. And this is so significant pillar of Islam, that it helps us realize that we Muslims who don't belong to this fall, we do not belong to this world.
We are not going to be here forever. We are going to depart this world one day, and we don't know when the day will come. Allah subhanaw taala he reminds us again and again in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala for example, says we are here to hydrolock Amina Allah, the life which is going to come the later life is better for you than this world. But the mankind is engaged, is involved, is busy
in taking and gaining this world,
and they are in race in absolute race to get this wall. They're running after this world.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
macabre until you reach the grave and the person unless and until the debt comes to him. He is so busy in developing his careers in building
Holmes in doing every possible thing, that he can live this life in luxury in a better way. So, the person is absolutely involved in this, Allah subhanaw taala, he has given this belief in hereafter, so that we may think beyond and how can we prove it logically?
First and foremost,
this belief in here after that we have, it's not a blind belief, it is based on sound and intellectual understanding, it is not a blind belief, number one, number two, if there is no life after death, then there is no concept of good and bad,
why should a person do good? Why should a person should avoid the bad, there is no point there is no logic for doing good, there is no logic for not doing bad.
That means, we as Muslims can give a logical reply to the people, why they should do good, they should do good in this world, so, that they can get in return in the Hereafter, they should avoid Bad's so that they can be saved from the punishment of hereafter. Third, reason why or how logically life after death or the Hereafter is there is because if there is no life after death, then that means there is no concept of peace, human values and justice. Why should a person be peaceful to others? Why should a person be obliged to the human values? Why, if he has the belief in hereafter, he will be accountable, he knows that one day he has to pay his account, he has to stand alone,
where there is no rescue. So, that logically proves that they should be your after. And the last point is why they should be here after or the reason or logic why they should be hereafter. Because in this world, you cannot get everything in terms of justice in full. You cannot get justice in full, a person who might kill 10 people or like for example, Hitler who killed 6 million Jews. What punishment what best punishment Can you give?
It would equate only one life What about the rest of the millions of lives? Allah subhanaw taala he has the power to give life to give debt and to give life again. Because as Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Yaseen for Allah subhanaw taala to recreate which he has created for the first time is easier.
So there is no justice or complete justice in this world in order to have complete justice, they must be here after Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Surah number three and number 185. On that day, you will have the complete Recompense. So these are the reasons why or how you can prove logically they should be here after on the top of it on the top of all logics, it is the command and the commitment and the plan have a loss of power. That this is your after, and this is the claim of the Creator who has created everything he claimed that it is going to come to it means it is going to come for sure.
