Religion makes one human

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | July 24, 2016, p. 12

Religion is not merely a set of rituals. Just being born in a family or being associated with some group does not make one a religious person. These are all outward or external things. These do not constitute the real essence of religion. The actual reality of religion is internal realization, which is superior to all outward things.

Elias Howe (1819-1867) was born in Massachusetts. He is known for his contribution in the making of the sewing machine. The main breakthrough was the development of a lock-stitch by a shuttle carrying a lower thread and a needle carrying an upper thread, which passes through a hole, situated at the tip of the needle.

Paradise is the supreme reward

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | June 19, 2016, p. 12

What is Paradise? Paradise is the supreme reward, which God gives to His special servants for their deserving actions. Paradise is a world of unique blessings, admission to which is reserved for the chosen few in the second stage of life, the Hereafter.

These special people are those who have demonstrated in ample measure their ability to live on the plane of realities in this present stage of life – the stage of trial. They are the ones who have discovered God’s existence from His signs.

True men of God against negativity

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | June 6, 2016, p. 12

The world of nature is characterized by its equilibriums. Human society must acquire the same equilibrium if it is to function smoothly. 

Ignoring the creator a grave sin

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | May 29, 2016 | p. 12

According to Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet of Islam is reported to have said, “One who never expresses his gratitude to other human beings will never be thankful to God.” 

Thankfulness is a state of mind which cannot be compartmentalized. If it manifests itself in one place, the chances are that it will do so in other places too. If a man shows gratitude to one person, he will surely show it to others likewise.
