To resurrect concept of fear of God
September 2, 2010 2 Comments
In Pakistan where religion is a strong driving and living force to pass the life of majority of population,but there is complete absence of perception of fear of God in the mind of people.
This fear of God and considering Him a single controller of universe is basic unit of not only Islam but majority religions of world started its preaching on the basis of fear and confidence on God’s immortal and unaccountable powers that is always ultimate source of inspiration of humans to follow the path of diety at all stage of lives.
But seeing the developing intolerant and violent situation in social, economical and political structure ,it is now obvious that we might be good fundamental Muslims who love to follow all basics of Islam but this concept of fear of God is now decaying around us and our religious faith.We have more number of mosques, religious schools and more scholars than 100 years before but where is fear of God in our heart that is the basic theme of our religious belief which can refrain us for doing sins.
Actually the philosophy behind considering the God as the only source of support, driver of our fate and a guardian of our deeds can be explained by following points:
This concept of having blind faith on supreme power gives us mature thought of absorbing failures with strong heart that somebody is taking care of our intentions and acts and He must have some backup concealed plans to secure our fate no matter we do something wrong as per our perception.
This trust on almighty gives us vision of seeing the difference between right and wrong or sin and reward in our daily acts.
This belief of control of uni source of power on one’s fate is resilient driving force to adopt the righteous path in the presence of trouble and cruel people who try to control others’ lives as per their mode of living.
God’s fear in any heart and mind take off its interests in extreme materialistic desires that are basic reasons of atrocities,corruption and oppression in any system.
So all such human traits link with tyrannical and brutal nature would go on rise if fear factor of All mighty would have been vanishing from hearts and minds and this is now rapidly growing in our surrounding making us a senseless and intolerant society.
The another interesting instinct which is sharply developing around is that more sinful trend we adopt in our acts regarding daily and professional lives ,more we would tend to follow the fundamental of Islams like saying prayers regularly, giving charity on large-scale or going to Hajj again and again.
We can see names of Allah written to every street, walls of our home and offices, recite it on rosary beads while doing our routine jobs which are based on fraudulent, corruption, lies and cheating others.
This attitude is found in all classes of society including a common labor to top business tycoon of our system.
So perception of fear of God before doing sins has been diminished from part of our faith that could only refrain our negative energy which we liberate in the form of brutality to weaker groups has become prominent in our civic structure.
So lets take all other acts of faith presentation behind the curtain and try to strengthen concept of fear of God as dominating fear factor of to control folks of different faith.This way we can get the focal energy of masses and they can demolish the idols of human gods in our existing system whom terror and horror is root cause of indifference and injustice prevailing around as strong civic force.This concept of Allah’s ultimate power is like soul which give special powers to minds to act like real super human being a true messenger of Allah.
