Man can be a true subject and obedient to God once he can perceive that he has a loving God, a God that is all compassion and His mercy overpowers His anger. Such a person can serve society and put the guidance of man in the forefront of his thoughts, and his death shall be an honorable one.
KORAN AND THE NATURE OF MAN
The Holy Koran is in harmony with the nature of man, and the nature of both man and Islam are against oppression and violating human rights. The nature of Islam is a logical one and one which centers on speaking and listening. All of the Koranic verses, except the “Bara’at” verse, scream out that the rulings of the Koran are that of love, compassion, and ease: “Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire hardship for you,” (Al-Baqarah, 185), and also, “We did not send you but as a mercy to the nations,” (Al-Anbiya, 107). Treating man with contempt has no place in Koranic culture and the culture of Imams (PBHT). The Holy Koran clearly stipulates that in talking to people, kindness and good conduct must be taken into consideration: “and speak kindly to people,” (Al-Baqarah, 83). In jurisprudential references, it has been said that being insolent to people even though they may not be Moslem, carries its own punishment, let alone insulting divine religions.
During hajj, people take themselves to the place of sacrifice and look to see whether they are capable of shedding everything off and go towards God cleansed. Hajj is the great legacy of Abraham and Mohammad (PBUH) which allows all God-seeking individuals to understand that if one seeks to be a man in the true meaning of the word, come towards us, take distance from yourself and become Godly. Hajj is the base and platform of Abraham, the breaker of idols, and Esmail the submissive, the devoted Hadjar, Mohammad, Ali, Fatima, Zahra (PBUT). A hajji goes around the house and says, “here I am,” one who wants to throw off the dress of selfishness, and like Esmail, throw himself lovingly at the altar of love, and with knowledge and wisdom, with pleasure and purity, turn toward the objective of giving everything up in a sense with the intention of sacrifice. Otherwise, it will only be a superficial act and the relinquishing of duty and they will not take any other benefit of such a Godly religion held as holy and sacred.
