Sprituality In Things
The work today which should be done is to take the spirituality out of these material things. Lets consider an example for this. Tree grows by absorbing water from it's surrounding but there's a whole process going on behind it. Sun rays strikes the surface of sea water and at a particular temperature it begins to evaporate and leave the salt behind. These water vapors then become clouds and it rains. It's a law of nature. In this we see that every thing needs to purify itself so that it could be useful. Water is purified and then is used to rain. Plant's absorb this water and use it's potential to become a tree full of fruits and flowers. Hence Everything is needed to be purified. Koran terms this purification as "Tazkia" and for a person this purification is termed as "Tazkia e Nafs".
Koran tells us that this purification is the main objective of any prophet or messenger sent toward any nation. In Surah e Jumma it's said that our Prophet Mohammad (May Allah's Mercy Be Upon Him) was sent for the same mission and this purification is done by educating people about "Kitaab" and "Hikamah". Koran is the book which contain these two things, in which 75% of it is Hikmah while other is Kitaab. Hikmah can only be gained by a person who thinks and observe this nature.
Our nature is full of signs of God and Hereafter but the thing is to find that signs. Plants get the purified water by the law of nature. But there is no such thing for a person. God have given him great mind and intelligence to figure out the mysteries of nature , to think in a way that every thing contains a spiritual message in it. If he is breathing , he should think that there's a God who has provided him this air to breath and not only has he provided him but he continuously is providing him , thus recall that his God is "Rehman" and "Rahim". Similarly if he sees someone in pain he should think that how healthy he is , if he sees someone in difficulties he should praise his God that he is not there with that difficulty. If a person develops his thinking like this he would be able to really grasp the meaning of "الْحَمْدُ للّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِين" and would not be sad and depressed in any manner cause he will then always thank God for making him so good from others.
The above thinking is in accordance with the education of Islam and is the way of thinking of our beloved Prophet (May Allah's Mercy Be Upon Him). However it can only be gained when a person read Koran and thinks on it , when he observe every little thing of nature and thus always recall his God and praise him. In this way he will be able to really believe that there is a God and simultaneously would be able to make his way easily to paradise in the hereafter.
May Allah make our thinking in accordance with Koran and gives us the ability to take spiritual message from all around the us."l end all of this by saying that All The Praise Is For God The Most Beneficial The Most Merciful".
