  • Is Life A Test?

    Posted by Nadeem Minhas on April 26, 2024 at 8:09 pm

    Considering that Islam is a logical religion and the purpose of life in Islam is a test.

    But life doesn’t meet all and some crucial criteria of a test.

    1. In a test, everyone knows for certain that they are taking a test, but as a whole very few people in the world know that life as a test. Life as a test and a certainty should have been established in everyone’s mind from birth.

    2. The end result of a test is a definite and a clearly understandable reward and no punishment. Yet if we fail the test of life, there is extreme and eternal punishment. On the otherhand, there is no distinct, clear or tangible reward but just a concept of paradise if someone passes the test.

    Furthermor, there is hardly any test in this world that can’t be retaken, if failed a few times, but there is only one opportunity to take and pass the test of life.

    In a test all opportunities are given to prepare for the test, yet life provides no opportunity to prepare to pass the test.

    People mostly struggle throughout the life just to survive. How can they spare time to explore numerous religions to find the truth. Not everyone has the time or intellectual ability to research and identify a true religion.

    Islam never explained its test as you explained….

    What Islam says that your test will be based on your capability to do things,get things,and improve understanding of things….

    For example a fully handicapped person would not be told in islam that you have to pray salah….but an able person would be orsered to pray etc….

    So it makes no sense then to give other opportunity to prove yourself improved…..

    Where in case of exams in world reservations are given as well for those persons….even if there is not this kind of thing but one thing is there is demand of increasing ability at last….but here in islamic here is demand of improving and understanding things sincerely at which ever level you are….

    Pt 2:obviosly who never tried or got to know about is life test etc….for them there will be that sort of reservatio s from Allah….if this can be done there is no necessary to re exam…
