"In order for a man to enjoy all his instincts and wishes to a logical degree, to live at peace with others and to attain prosperity both here and in the hereafter, he has to observe ethical standards. The advancements and degeneration of human societies do not depend solely on sciences and material progress. Rather, it is the observation of these ethical standards which bring about either prosperity or fall of such societies. A poet says :" Ethics keeps the human race alive, A tribe of humanity which lacks ethics is doomed to die."
At times, the lack of observation of one of the ethical standards might create a human disaster such as the world wars ( e.g. Napoleon entered the conference at Paris earlier than the others to be saluted by them. The king of Russia did not salute him. This action led to the destruction of Russia.) , or affects the well-wishes of a well-doing person. On the contrary, observing such standards saves a man who is going to fall, or covers his faults.
Thus ethics is a requirement for both statesmen and the Messengers of Allah. That is why the magnificent Quran, after eleven swearing, emphasizes that : " A delivered is one who purifies his soul of ethical corruptions and a wretched is one who corrupts his soul."
"He will indeed be successful who purifies it (the soul) and he will indeed fail who corrupts it". (91:9)
The Prophet (saw) was appreciated by God for holding the highest degree of ethical codes: " And most surely you conform (yourself) to sublime morality". And the secret for his appointment to the prophetic mission was his attainment of highest degree of sublime morality.
Alexis Carls, the renowned French scholar, writes in this regards, " We have lost all of our religious commands. The present generations are ignorant of all commands, such as, living in moderate, honesty, responsibility, cleanliness,self-control, love towards others, and courage. Such things are doomed as senseless and are made fun of by younger generations. The modern man recognizes no lie principle except enjoying worldly pleasures. Everybody is the slave to his pride and as a crab is ready to annihilate his fellow-human beings. .... ... ....Thus , all those principles on which our grand fathers laid their ways of personal and social lives, asre now just gone.
SHARE YOUR VIEWS ?????
very nice sharing dear
We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.There is a natural principle of benevolence in man, which is in some degree to society what self-love is to the individual.
