The Secret Beyond Matter

In the morality of the Qur'an, there is no room for despair or distrust

In the Qur'an, Allah reveals the best solutions to every situation. For this reason, there is no such thing as an unsolvable problem in the life of a believer. If he follows the road revealed in the Qur'an, a believer will easily be able to surmount every problem he meets. Allah revealed this to Ibrahim (as) in the Qur'an:

They said, "We bring you good news of the truth, so do not be among those who despair." (Surat al-Hijr: 55)

Allah also reveals in the Qur'an that He has made Islam an easy religion for human beings:

We have made the Qur'an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there? (Surat al-Qamar: 17)

No matter what difficulties a person encounters in his life, or how serious a mistake he has made, Allah has provided a way out and He reveals this in the Qur'an to His servants. In order to grasp the simplicity of religious morality, a person must be able to appreciate the sublime names of Allah and be aware of His infinite power and limitless knowledge. A person with such awareness will have no room in his life for despair, resignation or helplessness. Allah is the protector, friend, helper and guide of pure-hearted believers. His power is sufficient to save them from every anxiety and difficulty.

It is Allah Who creates both difficulty and ease. He has created these according to His sure wisdom to test human beings and to show who is determined in his relationship with the Lord. For those who do not become overwhelmed by despair even in their most difficult moments, and who are patient and determined in their trust in Allah, He has created ease together with difficulty. In the Qur'an, Allah gives the good tidings of this assistance:

We will ease you to the Easy Way. (Surat al-A'la: 8)

For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease. So when you have finished, work on. And make your Lord your goal! (Surat al-Inshirah: 5-8)

As it says in these verses, a person "only has to make the Lord his goal" in order to experience this ease. But because some allow themselves to be directed by satan and their lower selves, they remain deprived of this ease announced in the Qur'an. On the one hand, they are aware that they are on the wrong road, and on the other, instead of submitting to Allah, they try to solve their problems with satan's help. For this reason, they always come up against a dead end. As long as they do not turn to the morality of the Qur'an, their situation will continue to repeat itself. Meanwhile, satan makes them think this continuous repetition is due to the fact that they are in the grip of an insolvable situation. He is able to persuade them to gradually turn this idea into an obsession. However, their inability to come to a solution is entirely due to their not following the road revealed in the Qur'an.

The important fact is, these people could actually save themselves from this spiritual state if they wanted to. Their consciences tell them what they should do. Allah inspires in their consciences the idea that He will rescue them from their pain if they take refuge in Him, that He will answer all their prayers and will certainly help them. But because they are under satan's influence and want to obtain certain things by using their rebellious morality against believers, they cooperate with satan and refuse to relinquish their old behavior.
