The division of the secular and religious is not natural to “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and the earth”.
All creations, besides humans, believe in God as Designer, Creator, Sustainer, Protector, etc, of the Universe free of all dogmas and doctrines of Religion and follow the secular and scientific path of the creations without being Godless.
Therefore, all belief systems, which separate the secular and religious and make them separate and exclusive, are man-made.
None of them consciously relate to “the natural laws of the different dominions of the heavens and the earth”.
For example, plants and animals establish “certainty of knowledge” according to 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 tree, etc).
The majority of the people of Religion do not do so. They believe in the blind faith methodology of their religions, which separates the secular from the religious.
Likewise, atheists and secularists also differ with Nature on this issue. They support the “science based” and “evidence based” methodology of modern science, which deny the existence of God.
Hence, all belief systems, both secular and religious, are alien to “the natural laws of the heavens and earth”, some way or another.
Therefore, the only valid belief system in the context of the above, which is completely natural to our Universe, is God’s Word, which is explained in the context of God’s Work in Nature.
Its main purpose is not only to establish the Unity of the secular and the religious, but also that of the individual and the community and the national and international.
If you agree to disagree, you will comprise “the all truth” and Reality of your Universe, increasing the division and hate among all the people of this world based on conjecture.
The Qur’an states that the choice is yours. “There is no compulsion”.
