Action, re-Action and the Laws of Nature

By Mohammad Rafique Etesame

 

It is a universal truth that every action has its re-action. It means “if it is so, then it will be so” in its reaction. For example, if someone commits a crime, then he will be punished, if he follows the laws of his country, he will be rewarded, if he violates them, then he will be punished, if he serves his parents, he will be well-wished, and if he teases them, then he will be cursed. Similarly, if he touches the fire, he will be burnt, if he handles the ice, it will make him cold, and if he eats poison, then he will die and so and so as it is said, “as you sow, so shall you reap”.

 

Infect, reaction for something is a natural law that is inevitable and cannot be changed; as it is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, “Then, can they expect aught save the treatment of the folk of old? Thou wilt not find for Allah’s way of treatment any substitute, nor wilt thou find for Allah’s way of treatment aught of power to change. (Al-Fatir:43)

 

Natural law has two parts, first is a condition that means” If it is so” and second one is “then it will be so” in its reward. It means that if the first one is found, then the second one will also be found.

 

As we know that every government has its constitution and a penal code for the citizens. According to it, the honorable Judges decide the cases and If someone disobeys the Laws of his country, then he will be arrested and is dealt according to the law.

 

Similarly, this universe is infect Allah’s country and He is the absolute Master, powerful King of His regime having no partner in His sovereignty.

 

He created man for His worship and made a constitution for him that is “Religion of Islam” as Ordains in the Holy Qur’an, “This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAM.(Il-Maidah:3).

 

These verses reveal that ‘the constitution’ of the Regime of Allah is only Islam and no other religion is acceptable as the holy Qur’an reveals, “And whoso seeks as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah i.e. Al-Islam), it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter.”(Family of Imran: 85).

 

He gave the warning to man that if he obeys the orders of Allah, then he will be awarded Paradise, and if he violates them, then he will be thrown in Hell. Allah Almighty will set up a “Highly authorized Supreme Court” at the Day of Judgement and He, His highness will be the Chief Justice of His Royal Court and will decide the cases according to Islam.

These decisions at the Day of Judgment will be infect, the reaction of man's actions that he made in this world.

 

Some people deny the Day of Resurrection and say that when the man will be dead and becomes dust or ashes, (as the Hindus set their dead bodies on fire, then whether it is possible to become alive again? So, Almighty Allah Says in the Holy Qur'an, “And they say: when we are bones and fragments, shall we, forsooth, be raised up as a new creation?

 

Say: Be ye stones or iron Or some created thing that is yet greater in your thoughts! then they will say: Who shall bring us back (to life)? Say: He Who created at the first. Then will say shake their heads at thee, and say: When will it be? Say: it will perhaps be soon. A Day when He will call you and ye will answer with His praise, and ye will think that ye have tarried but a little while. (The Children of Israel: 52)

 

It means that all the people will be brought back to lives again, and then they will be presented before Allah, where they will find reward or punishment for their actions. The Holy Qur’an reveals,” Every soul will taste of death. And ye will be paid on the Day of Resurrection only that which ye have fairly earned. Whoso is removed from the Fire and is made to enter Paradise, he indeed is triumphant. The life of this world is but comfort of illusion. (The Family of Imran: 185)

 

It is mentioned before that if someone violates the laws of Nature: is arrested and be punished. Similarly, those people who are the infidels or mushrik, will be arrested and be punished at the Day of Resurrection because they have violated the constitution of the Master of the universe in their worldly life.

 

Also reveals,” The guilty will be known by their marks, and will be taken by the forelocks and the feat. Which is it, of the favors of your Lord, that ye deny? This is Hell which they go circling round between it and fierce, boiling water” (The Beneficient: 45).

 

So, it is necessary for everyone to obey all the commandments of Allah Almighty and do good actions so that he may get the immense reward for their re-actions from Allah and pass a successful life forever. The holy Qur’an reveals, “

 

 

(And ) those who believe and do good works are the best of created beings. Their reward is with their Lord: Gardens of Eden underneath which rivers flow, wherein they dwell forever. Allah hath pleasure in them and they have pleasure in Him. (This is (in store) for him who fears his Lord.(Al-Bayyenah: 8 )
