What is “lawful” is clear and what is “unlawful” is clear. The reason is there is nothing that Allah (Exalted be He) has enjoined upon us
but He has put its love into our hearts, and He hasn’t prohibited something unless He has put its hatred into our hearts.
The evidence: “So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. (Adhere to) the nature (framed) of Allah upon which He has created (all) people. (Ar-Rum 30:30)
It means everything that Allah has enjoined upon us we’ve been made, programmed, designed to love it
The strongest evidence: “but Allah has endeared to you the faith and has made it pleasing in your hearts and has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience.” (Al-Hujurat 49:7)
By nature, you’re programmed to love anything that is enjoined upon you.
And you’re programmed to hate anything you are forbidden.
For example, when someone returns home 1 AM.
Yet, his mother had asked him to buy her medication and he told her all pharmacies are closed.
But he knows that there’re some late-opening pharmacies but he was lazy and his mother forgot about it.
But, if he had already gone to the late-opening pharmacies and did not find the medication,
he would return and sleep in all peace of mind. This is pure nature.
So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. (Adhere to) the fitrah of Allah upon which He has created (all) people. (Ar-Rum 30:30)
but Allah has endeared to you the faith and has made it pleasing in your hearts and has made hateful to you disbelief, defiance and disobedience. (Al-Hujurat 49:7)
Suppose that someone had been saved from a drown ship and was casted away on the uninhabited island where he grew up with his mother.
If he had caught a rabbit and ate it alone, he would have felt dispirited.
This person didn’t learn anything about religion.
But, if he had fed his mother half the rabbit, he would have felt contented.
Thus, you’re programmed and designed to love the obedience to Allah.
And to hate His disobedience.
A prominent professor of psychology at the university told that 152% of the West experience depression.
The percentage was inconceivable to us and wondered what could it mean.
He explained that 100 of them have depression and 52 have two depressions.
Disobedience to Allah causes depression. That’s why the believer lives in state of happiness that is priceless.
Because he complies with his pure nature, with his principles.
And the unbeliever lives with depression, whether he likes it or not.
Depression is the disease of the modern age with 152% in the West.
The Islamic religion is in fact compatible with one’s psychology.
Definitely compatible, to obey Allah and be in line with His orders is indescribable contentment.
