God did not send any Book or Prophet to establish any Religion. He sent all Books and Prophets to establish a Standard Way of Life (Ad Deeni Haneefan) for all of humanity based on “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and the earth” according to the Creeds of Abraham, which advocate sound reason and logic and do not divide the Truth and Reality of both the secular and religious in our universe.
For example, plants and animals establish “certainty of knowledge” through the methodology of ilm-ul-yaqin (certainty of knowledge by inference and reasoning), ayn-ul-yaqin (certainty of knowledge by seeing and observing) and haqq-ul-yaqin (absolute knowledge, like this is a computer, etc).
Unfortunately, in contrast, in Religion, it is norm to follow blind faith, priesthood, sainthood, traditions of Hadith, Talmud, the dogmas and doctrines of their Church, fabricated tales, etc.
On the other hand, atheists and secularists use “science based” and “evidence based” knowledge, which divide the Reality of the secular and religious by denying the existence of God, much against “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and the earth”?
Hence, all Books of God promote a Standard Way of Life (Ad Deeni Haneefan) giving adequate reasons why they reject all Religions and Evolution and why we should relate to the “the all truth” and Reality of our universe based on “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and the earth”.
To explain this further, let’s take the example of the male and female in the animal kingdom. They get attracted to one another, fall in love and make a home. In their case, they don’t have any complication race, religion, caste, tradition, language, etc. Hence, no honor killing, Hindu Muslim riots, the killing of the Dalit, etc.
Our children are as innocent as they are. To get attracted to a member of the opposite sex is not a crime. It’s natural. If our children had the support of a natural way of life based on “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and earth”, there would be no difference of belief, and therefore no hate, no loss of life or relationship, etc.
Hence, all man-made beliefs systems contradict one another to such an extent that not all of them can be right but all of them can be wrong.
Therefore, let us put our emotions and sentiments aside and follow the Book of God in the context of His Work in Nature to establish a Standard Way of Life (Ad Deeni Haneefan) for our children based on “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and the earth”, which promote both, the secular and religious Truths and Realities of our lives in relation to our universe.
