What Should Be Our Relationship With Religion?
Now it is clear that the purpose of religion is to make a person a true human being. What ever we do, morning and evening, our actions are constructing and completing our existence; we are our own maker. When we are constructing a building, none of the brick is wasted, whether it is curved or straight. But, if the brick is curved, the wall will be curved too; if the bricks are straight the wall will be straight. So anything we say or do does not go waste. As the Holy Qur’an says: “So, he who has done an atom’s weight of good shall see it, and who has done an atom’s weight of evil shall see it.” (Qur’an 99:7/8)
With the help of these activities, we make ourselves and make our reality, both, those who follow religion as well as those who do not follow religion. If you follow religion, whatever image that will be completed it will be of a human being; without religion, it will be inhuman and it will be just human skin.
Reward (Thawab) is not the purpose of our religion but the philosophy of rewards is to follow religion. The purpose of rewards is to follow the religion and be a true religious person and attain humanity.
