Unfortunately, Namazi and Rozdar folks have invested too much in fraudulent schemes (Namaz, Roza, & Hajj etc.). It is very difficult for them to realize and accept the fact that all their investment is going down the drain.''
Very strong declaration with no authority. How do you know its down the drain.
I have seen poorest people on earth getting up in dark and freezing morning, make wazoo, walk to a nearby Mosque in minimum clothing and pray fajar. see in northern Pakistan mountains or hot Arabian deserts. . is it all down the drain?
People , who pray, fast or do good deeds are not always evils or mistaken, as you are portraying. Most, if not all have good intentions and a as you say :a lure for rewards. "'
Whats wrong in rewards. Human always look for rewards in next life, only animals dont, as they exist in present only.
Dont you work in a company and look for a salary reward at the end on month. Dont you effort for a better future.
People are not perfect, they just follow a pattern from birth to death, given to them by parents, teachers and society. Every one is not literate enough to analyses, research for wrong or rights. They just walk behind. To understand my point, you have to go around the world and see all walks of life.
We should keep balances in life and should not expect every thing and every one in a certain order. World in not made that way. People are not perfect, but they are not evil or always mistaken either. God will Inshallah forgive their short comings.
Allah Pak, in his infinite wisdom know them as he is the creator and "Rehman and Raheem".
7:156 ... My mercy embraces all things ...
55:8 So that you, too, never violate balance in your lives.
55:9 Therefore, establish Balance in the society in absolute justice. And never belittle the Scale of Justice in the community and in all your transactions with your own ‘Self’ and with others.
55:10 And (know that) the earth He has spread out for all His creatures. ('Anam' = All living beings).
AlImran 3:31 say (O Messenger), “If you love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and preserve your 'Self'. He will save you from trailing behind in humanity and in the community of nations. For, Allah is Most Protecting, Full of Grace (causing benevolent actions to flourish)."
