Worthy Consideration

Allah says in Sura Rum Ayat no. that????

“Do they not reflect within themselves: Allah did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them two but with truth and (for) an appointed term? And most surely most of the people are deniers of the meeting of their Lord.”

Worldly Progress

Now consider this Ayat, Sura Rum Ayat no. 7.

يَعْلَمُونَ ظَاهِرًا مِّنَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ عَنِ الْآخِرَةِ هُمْ غَافِلُونَ

“They know the outward of this world’s life, but of the hereafter they are absolutely heedless.”

Now a days people’s condition is like this. Their thinking is limited up till world. That is why they content with the worldly instruction only. They make their own world. That is why today a man has worked surprisingly in the worldly progress. A man has been attained perfection in agriculture and other scientific knowledge. Even a man has been progressed in science of medicine. Now, the heart surgery is also become easy and also changes the heart but it is very sad that people do not pay attention towards spiritual disease of the heart. New inventions of lives are available today but have not made arrangement for the satisfaction of the heart. A man has reached in the atmosphere environment and has traveled thirty lakhs twenty two thousand kilo metre far from the earth but have not controlled on their mind. He has reached on such places where we did not guess to reach there but according to the spiritual he stepped backward and has become worst than animals. He come to know that solar system is in the old age but then also he does not think of world’s destruction. He sees many men dying everyday and he knows that no one can remain left but it does not effect on him but the future life after the death does not come to mind.

One more world

People do not think that there is a device that is hidden in every worldly thing, and then there will be advice of existence of the world also. The world would not been created without any reason. Therefore there is one more life after the death and there is one more world also after this world. And that world is not horrible like this world. A man can reach to happiness and state of rest.

This world is for recognition

Allah has given wisdom and ability to a man that he would consider on this world and gets knowledge through it. See this that tiny creature has art to do something and obtain assurance on Allah and think that there would be skill in his creation. He can make it easy to refer the Holy book of Allah and the Hadith of Muhammad and Alay Muhammad (s.a.w.s.). Hewill come to know that he has born recognize Allah and His worship. He has been created to get good attribution and perfection and has been created for approach till the life of the world and the hereafter. He has been created to see all these blessings that he cannot guess of it. Allah says in Sura Sajdah Ayat no. 17.

فَلَا تَعْلَمُ نَفْسٌ مَّا أُخْفِيَ لَهُم مِّن قُرَّةِ أَعْيُنٍ جَزَاء بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ

“So no soul knows what is hidden for them of that which will refresh the eyes, a reward for what they did.”

(Surah Sajadah 32:17)

In other words, Allah has created human being, one perishable world and one everlasting world. Allah wants that we should see manifesting divine mercy and beneficence means to consider of Allah’s bounties, skill, charity and mercy and then see Allah’s grandeur and dignity that means consider of Allah’s justification and curse on the unjust people. There are many Ayats of Quran have been mentioned till today. We are contented with it.

Consideration and anxiety is the best worship

Hazrat Amirul Mo-mineen (a.s.) was saying admonish yourself by means of consideration and anxiety. Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) says,

Be anxious about best worship of Allah and His commands.

(From Usul al-Kafi Bab Tafakkar).

Imam Ali Reza (a.s.) says,

“Keep up prayer and fast is not a worship. To be worried and considered about Allah’s work is the real worship.”

Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) says mostly the worship of Abu Zar’s (r.a.) was to be worried and anxious about Allah and take a lesson from it. Another tradition of Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) is recorded along with this that to be considered for once hour is very much better than worship of one year and only the wise people accept this guidance.

(From Beharul Anwaar vol 15 pg 195)

Standard of worship depends on knowledge of God. As a result of consideration and anxiety the recognition will be increased and its rewards also. Perhaps it should not be obtained from the worship of less recognition of one year and would obtained from the worship of one hour. It does not mean that a man should give up prayer and only worries and considers. Hazrat Amirul Mo-mineen (a.s.) says if people would think about Allah’s grandeur and his blessings, they would come to the right path and would fear of punishment of the hell. (From Nahjul Balagah).

“Consideration and anxiety is the cause of good deed.”

Hazrat Ali (a.s.) says, sonsideration and anxiety call us towards good deeds and visit us to practice on it. Allamah Majlisi says, in the detail of this Hadith that this Hadith contains all kinds of consideration and anxiety. To consider on Allah’s grandeur prepares people for fear of God and to obey Him. And this makes them thought about the perishable world and its bounties that he can give up by the command of Allah. In this way taking a lesson from other they find the way of their reform. Unjust and cruel persons get punishment in the world from Allah or the worldly people then he ties to protect from the bad deeds and bad manners. Considering the divine secret of worship and hint he knows the target and performs his prayers with great attention. Considering the high stages of the hereafter a man running about to get it. The result of his consideration a man act upon the commands of religion and Islamic laws and protects from sin. And in this way he gets benefits to consider about good attribution and good manners and he himself decorated it.

Style of worries

Hasan Saikal says that I asked Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that people copied out the tradition of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) that to think about one hour is better than to perform the prayers standing whole night. So in what style he should consider and worry in this connection? Imam (a.s.) said he should pass by the ruins or deserted place and should ask the ruins, where are they who were residing in you? Where are people who built you? What has happened to you? Why don’t you speak? (None of you to speak, all have passed away).

Consideration and anxiety is the way of recognition

Big and small creations of the universe are the signs of Allah. A man knows by considering about that there is a creator of each creation. Some one is there to set in motion the things. In this way when a man thinks, he finds some expediency and necessity in each creation. Hence he understands that creator of these things is very powerful. His wisdom and strength is unlimited. Allah has been holding up carefully the whole system of universe. Whether animals or the human beings. He has made the system of their lives very carefully. Human can also controls the arrangement up till limit. He has got wisdom and bravery. Wisdom and bravery and ability to control an arrangement is also a creation of the universe. And human being himself is a creation. He was not before but created afterwards. Is the creator of the wise people can be ignorant?

Needles of the clock

The famous philosopher and a writer ‘Waltar’ (born in 1694 and died in 1774) has been included among the wisest men of the world. He writes in his book Qamoos Philosophy that the best way to reach up to the mystic knowledge is that we should not notify only the system of universe only but we should be attentive to its intentions and skills that all creatures are created.

He says when I see a clock that its bell shows the different time I declared the result at once that certainly this clock is made by sensible man so that it shows the time by organized way. When I see the parts of my body, the result is declared that certainly some intellectual has made these organs of the body to lead the life well mannerly (from vocabulary of Quran pg. No 356)

The condition of the needles of a clock is that a special machine is made and the needles of hours, minutes and seconds are fixed. If one needle is failed, the whole clock does not work. An intelligent man has made it very carefully. When this is a condition of this small clock then surely such vast universe and well-arranged systan of the universe is also made by The Knower, The Wise.

The Body structure

The structure of the body is very astonishing thing. It has systems of chewing swallowing, digesting etc. Besides, it includes the system of developing and increasing generation. It has an arrangement of making new blood and purifying blood. It has different kinds of organs like heart, liver, kidney, eyes, ears etc and most of all an amazing thing are wisdom and it has also ability of give senses. To consider about each and every thing we amazed. Indeed that Allah the Powerful has been created all these things.

Our Holy Quran says in sura Saffat Ayat no. 96

وَاللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمْ وَمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

“And Allah has created you and what you make.”

(Surah Saffat 37:96)


Allah has given a man an ability of doing all works. Allah has given intelligence and understanding power and of course he has given power that he should utilize his ability correctly or wrongly, he would get his result.

Habit or Warning

According to habit if a man will look carelessly to the things, he would not get prudence or knowledge. He should observe all these things with sense and manners so he can take a lesson from it. And in this way he can think Allah’s unlimited wisdom and strength. Seeing a new thing a man says bravo! What a wonderful thing! This is his imagination. Allah says in the Holy Quran in Sura Yusuf Ayat no 105.

وَكَأَيِّن مِّن آيَةٍ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ يَمُرُّونَ عَلَيْهَا وَهُمْ عَنْهَا مُعْرِضُونَ

“And how many a sign in the heavens and the earth which they pass by, yet they turn aside from it.”

(Surah Yusuff 12:105)

Study it

To practice the consideration and for recognition of Allah, studying the ayats of the Holy Quran. Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) discussed four points about oneness of Allah to his follower Mufazzal. And said study it. There are many books besides the Holy Quran, read it. There are many details about the earth and the sky and other creatures. Your knowledge can be increase by reading it. We give some details in brief to increase the knowledge.

Infidel king and Pious Wazir

It is said that in previous time was a materialistic infidel king and his wazir was very pious. One-day wazir thought to give him advice. It was not an easy task. Wazir built a magnificent palace in the jungle without informing the king and planted the different kinds of fruits and flowers around it. One day the king and his wazir passed by that palace while hunting. The king surprised and asked who has built this palace? I have passed by this way a several times but I have not seen it before. The wazir said – It is possible that it has been built automatically. The king said ‘How is it be possible? The wazir said here the storm comes in the sea very often. It is possible that stones might be separated from the mountains and gathered here by floating because of the storm of the sea. Then by chance they might be gathered on one after another. The same condition of these trees and plants that are grow here because of the storms. The king said no one would agree with you. This splendid palace cannot build without the help of skilled are hitect. You must inquire that who has built it here? The wazir said you said that none could agree that this palace is constructed automatically. Then surely some one has built it intentionally. Is the body structure not important than this structure? Besides human beings all beasts and all kinds of vegetables are not astonished more than this? Can any wise man tell this, seeing the system of whole universe that all these are made without any source? Hearing this the king became ready to think over it and he also became a pious.

Discussion of Ali Bin Misam

Ali Bin Misam was a great Shia Scholar in the time of Mamoon Rashid. Shaikh Mufid says, one day Ali Bin Misam went to Hasan Bin Sahal the vazir of Mamoon Rashid. One secular man was sitting by Hasan sahal. People were giving him great respect and were listening his unbecoming gossip. Ali Bin Misam became very sad. He said – I have seen a very strange thing today. People asked what he has seen? He replied – I saw a boat without a boatman on the bank of river Dajla. People were crossing the river in that boat. That secular man asked, O Vazir! Do not listen to him. He has no sense and he has become a mad. A boat is made of wood and inorganic matter and no need of wisdom, sense and device to sail the boat without boatman. Ali Bin Misam said. That is absurd you called me a mad because a boat without a boatmen. The sun, the moon, the earth and all drops of sky and all present things in it how are moving. Their arrangement is made properly and you say that the boat of vast universe is sailing without a boatman! And besides it you consider yourself as an intelligent. That secular man ashamed and knew that he has made a story to give him guidance this incident is written in the book of scholar Shaikh Abbas Kummi Tahfatul Ahbab pg no. 237.

Whiteness and Yolk of an egg

Abu Shakir Desani was a religious hypocrite. One day he came to Imam Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) and said “O Ja’far Ibne Muhammad! Take me to my Lord.” Hazrat (a.s.) said Take a seat. He sat. At that time a child was playing with an egg holding in his hand. Hazrat (a.s.) asked that child – Son! Give me this egg. A child gave him that egg. Then Imam (a.s.) asked Desani, see this egg is like a strong fort and its strong peel is covered around it. Under this peel is a thin skin and under this thin skin like silver water floating inside and a Yolk like gold in the middle of it. But whitish does not mix with a Yolk or a Yolk does not mix with whitish. They do not come out automatically from an egg. We don’t know, what will come out from it, male chick or a female chick. After a few days, a chick breaks the peel from inside and a beautiful chick like a peacock’s beautiful feathers. O, Daisani! The reason of its creation is Allah the Wise and Powerful or your imagination? How is it come into existence automatically? Abu Shakir Daisani bowed down his head and raised his head suddenly and said – “I bear witness that there is no god but one God and I bear witness that Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) is His Rasul (s.a.w.s.). Whatever my belief was at first, I repent for it.

(From Beharul Anwaar vol. 2 chapter Asbate Sane pg. 7).
