If we go out and we look at surrounding we would see two kinds of creations one is living thing and other is non living thing. In living things God created different creatures out of them Human being received the highest position, they are known as ASHARAF UL MAKHLOQAT and the reason for getting this tile is they have power to use there intellect and spend their life in respect to it. The basic purpose of a Human being is to spend a good quality of life here quality means by following ethics and principles of humanity. Islam is the religion that guides an individual to spend life in an effective manner. According to Hazarat Ali “it is indeed a religion founded on truth. It is such a fountain-head of learning that several streams of wisdom and knowledge flow from it. It is such a lamp that several lamps will be lighted from it.”
It is being rightly said Islam guides an individual in every aspect of life. The best example is the life pattern of last Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) who spends life in accordance with teaching of Islam and He use to live happily.
Islam is a religion that promotes thinking, spiritual faith. It is a religion that teaches compassion and tolerance and that upholds the dignity of man, Allah's noblest creation.
One of the important characteristic of Islam is its openness that not only includes the concept regarding religious practices but it also includes the matters regarding daily life issues.
If we observe a human life it is based on 4 main factors that are: biological, social, economical and spiritual. If these four factors are in balance then only a human can spent his life effectively. Miraculously all these four factors are clearly covered in teachings of Islam and there is no reason by which a man don’t feels satisfied with life after following teachings of Islam.
If we turn folds of history we have a great example of Fatmid khilafat. It was formulated on the basis of preaching of Islam, in which all four factors that I mentioned above were included that includes brotherhood, peace, equality, rights and duties of citizen, obligation of government toward their citizen, thirst of knowledge and many more.
If we look at the work of Imam of time that is His Highness Prince Karim Aga khan he also emphasize on spending the life according to teachings of Islam.
In the end it is important to note that Islam is the best religion of the world and we should study the points that Islam emphasize and should follow them; then only we would be able to form a healthy society.
