GOD, HIS CREATION, MANKIND AND RELIGION

What is religion ?

In answer to this question most people would say that it is a faith or belief- leading human beings to worship a particular God or Lord. Perhaps, human beings are provided with an inherent instinct of worshipping their Creator or God. At present there are many such beliefs existing in the world. Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Parsi (Zoroastrianism) are examples of these.

Now, the question arises, as to how these religions came into practices among different groups of people in the world. Before going to get an answer to this question, and discuss the issue of religion further, one must know some facts about God and His Creation.

To summarise, in the words of the Prophet Muhammad: "Every person is born with the innate religious faith (to submit to Allah, the Almighty i.e. Islam)".  If the child were left alone, he would worship Allah in his own way, but all children are affected by those things around them, seen or unseen. The Prophet  Muhammad (PBUH) reported that Allah said, "I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray". The Prophet (PBUH) also said, "Each child is born in a state of "Fitrah" (submit to the will of Allah), then his parents make him a Jew, Christian or a Zoroastrian, the way an animal gives birth to a normal offspring, Have you noticed any that  were born mutilated?"(Collected by Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim).

So, just as the child submits to the physical laws which Allah has put in nature, his soul also submits naturally to the fact that Allah is his Lord and Creator. But, his parents try to make him follow their own way and the child is not strong enough in the early stages of his life to resist or oppose the will of his parents. The religion which the child follows at this stage is one of custom and upbringing and Allah does not hold him to account or punish him for this religion. However, he has been asked to look for the true religion and apply the knowledge Allah has given to him, when he is able to think independently.
