The articles of faith

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


If we reflect on the description of previous Section, we shall find some very necessary principles of life from it:


  1. All humankind of the world will not be Believers. Only those people; whose hearts have tendency of seeking the truth and the right, they will incline unto this matter wholeheartedly. But the people who are engaged in collecting worldly advantages by enjoying the slight pleasures, they are not effective; whether you cause to understand them as much as you can, admonish them by reciting the verses of God’s Word, they will never believe. Therefore, Allah Almighty has made so law of life for the mankind that He has added up perfect guidance in Holy Qur’aan for them; who want to seek the Truth. And for teaching this Book of Allah Almighty, the Religious Scholars remained in the world always. Seekers of the Truth used to come unto them successively, so that they might learn the Scripture and remove their doubts.


  1. Nobody can compel any other for believing. Every individual has been provided opportunity for choosing the way and religion he/she desires in accord with own sense and capability and he should act upon it according to own will. Different religions and the people of separate thoughts from one another will remain among the people up to the last day of the world. So verily it is sufficient that every individual should solve own doubts by asking from own scholar. Then it is duty of the scholar that he should not keep his personal worldly benefits in view at the time of describing the Truth. He should explain the matter correctly, without any greed, before them who come unto him in search of the Right for the sake of Allah Almighty, and only due to the reason that it has been commanded in Holy Qur’aan that the seekers should ask and the scholar should explain. It is duty of every individual.


  1. For keeping up such atmosphere that seekers of the truth may carry on their effort freely, and they may not be entangled in articles of faith willing or unwilling, moreover, they should understand about them (religious tenets) with cool heart and cause to know them. It is necessary that safety and peace should be established in the world. Nobody should use force of any sort against any other, and every individual should be able to get necessities of life according to his needs. Religion is an important thing. When there is no compulsion in it; then how can be “violence and oppressing one another” lawful for worldly advantages?


It is known from this verse that in the world, people of every doctrine will exist. Therefore, it is incumbent that authority should be of justice, safety and peace.
