Problem of evil: A price of good

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | April 01, 2018

Besides man, the rest of the world is incredibly beautiful. One only has to look at the luxuriant bloom of a tree and the fragile tenderness of a flower; one only has to gaze at the spectacles of nature, on land and in space; so attractive will one find them that one will not wish to remove one’s gaze.

The Essence of Prayer

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | March 25, 2018

An old peasant was seated alone in the last pew of the village church. “What are you waiting for?” he was asked, and he answered, “I am looking at Him and He is looking at me.”

Man failed the task given by God

“Corruption has appeared on land and sea because of the evil which men’s hands have done: and so He will make them taste the fruit of some of their doings, so that they may turn back from evil.” (Quran 30:41)

On the doorstep of death

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | March 11, 2018

Of all the stages through which a person will have to pass, death is the most certain. It is possible for one not to be endowed with life at all, but one who is alive is sure, also, to die. Everyone who is alive now will be dead sometime in the future. One day the eyes of those who see will fade and their tongues freeze into silence. 

True purpose of life is beyond self

Man should follow universal norms

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Feb 25, 2018

The Quran says: “Give just weight and measure and do not defraud others of their possessions. Do not corrupt the land after it has been set in order. “ (7:85)

According to this verse, the world made by God is a perfect world, where everything is set in order. Everything in it functions as it ought to. 

Man should follow the law of God

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Feb 18, 2018

The Quran states: “God created everything, and He has set for each a measure.” (25:2)This principle is startlingly clear in the world of physics, where research has shown everything in this universe to be governed by laws, which every element adheres to with strict determinism. Physicists marvel at the uniformity of the universe.

Fulfill duties, but expect no reward
