  • Alas! We have been deceived. We supposed the life of this world to be constant, and so have lost everything. Yes, this passing life is but a sleep; it passes like a dream. This frail life flies like the wind, and departs.

The Civilization in the Qur'an

The Qur’an, which is a mercy for mankind, only accepts a civilization that allows for the happiness of all, or at least of the majority. Modern civilization has been founded on five negative principles: Its point of support is force, the mark of which is aggression. Its aim and goal is benefit, the mark of which is jostling and tussling. Its principle in life is conflict, the mark of which is strife. The bond between the masses is racialism and negative nationalism, which are nourished through devouring others; their mark is collision. Its enticing service is inciting lust and passion and gratifying the desires. But lust transforms man into a beast. As for the civilization the Shari‘a of Muhammad (saw) comprises and commands, it is as follows: Its point of support is truth instead of force, the mark of which is justice and harmony. Its goal is virtue in place of benefit, the mark of which is love and attraction. Its means of unity are the ties of religion, country, and class, in place of racialism and nationalism, and the mark of these is sincere brotherhood, peace, and only defence against external aggression. In life its principle is mutual assistance instead of conflict, the mark of which is accord and solidarity. And it offers guidance instead of lust, the mark of which is human progress and spiritual advancement. Do not loosen your hands from Islam, the preserver of our existence; cling onto it with all your strength or you shall be lost!
