How careful we are about our body?
Paying attention to what we eat or drink these days seems to be the most obvious attempt in order to have a healthy physic because everyone knows that whatever you eat, will have some effects on your body whether good or bad. Even if someone doesn’t have any medical information he will definitely follow medical instructions! Do you know why?! Because doctors say so.
I myself may have a good knowledge about my body. So why whenever I get sick I go to the doctors? Why do I accept their decisions even when they are completely against my own opinion and my will? Because I trust them, I believe that they know my body better than myself!
Just for a second imagine a world without doctors and no diseases yet. People are living their lives till someone emerges and name himself DOCTOR. He presents some warnings about what we should and shouldn’t eat! He claims that you must be careful about your nutrition to have a healthy life. Seems to be hard but If you don’t eat healthy not tomorrow but in a near future you will see the damages. Nobody has seen any illness before! Nobody has ever came back from the future to testify his claims. But don’t you think it is Rational for people to consider that man’s warnings? What if he is right? All he is suggesting is to eat properly and that is clearly for our own good. So what’s the big grouch! If I were one of those people I would certainly listen to the man’s advices!
My friends! All I’m saying is 124000 prophets (doctors) have came and warned us about the big news (afterlife) and claimed that whatever we feed our souls today will have its effect on our next life. I know nobody has ever came back from the death to provide us the truth but don’t you think it is Rational to consider those warnings and instructions (religion)?
اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ لَيَجْمَعَنَّكُمْ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ ۗ وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حَدِيثًا
Allah! There is no god but He: of a surety He will gather you together against the Day of Judgment, about which there is no doubt. And whose word can be truer than Allah´s? (An-Nissa, 87)
زَعَمَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَن لَّن يُبْعَثُوا ۚ قُلْ بَلَىٰ وَرَبِّي لَتُبْعَثُنَّ ثُمَّ لَتُنَبَّؤُنَّ بِمَا عَمِلْتُمْ ۚ وَذَٰلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ
The Unbelievers think that they will not be raised up (for Judgment). Say: “Yea, By my Lord, Ye shall surely be raised up: then shall ye be told (the truth) of all that ye did. And that is easy for Allah.” (At-taghaabun, 7)
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh):
الدنیا مزرعه الاخره
This world is like a farm toward afterlife
