Four superior principles in life according to the holy Quran

SHAFAQNA – According to the holy Quran the most important principles which the human being must pay attention to, regarding the philosophy and the style of life are:

  1. Acceptance of the hereafter and the Day of Judgment: A person who believes in the hereafter and the Day of Judgment tries to live in a way that he/she is able to answer for his/her deeds during lifetime, and makes sure that his/her actions do not cause Divine Wrath.
  2. Performing Salaat: Performing Salaat is a worshipping act and the way to connect to God in proper manner. This is the most complete way for the human being to strengthen Godly characteristics within himself/herself.
  3. Spending in the way of charity (Infaq/Sadaqah): The most superior good deed after Salaat is to be generous towards other people. The one, who spends in charitable deeds, is aware of social responsibility and other people’s situation is important to him/her. That is why in the holy Quran, after Salaat, spending in the way of charity is emphasized (Ayah 3, Surah Al-Baqarah).
  4. Observance of Divine Laws: The fourth superior principle which is mentioned in the holy Quran is observance of Divine Laws, because the person who does not believe in the hereafter, carries out any good or bad deed and does not recognise any red lines, and according to the holy Quran becomes corrupt/immoral/sinful, as these people who are after creating doubts about the Day of Judgment (Ayahs 1 to 5, Surah Al-Qiyamah).

In Ayahs 42 to 46 of Surah Al- Moddathther, the residents of hell will be asked: “What led you into hell fire? They will reply: We were not of those who used to perform Salaat; nor were of those who fed the indigent; but we used to talk vanities with vain talkers; and we used to deny the Day of Judgment.”
