Wisdom behind Religious Injunctions

  • Each and every injunction of the Syariah contains an abundance of wisdom and innumerable lessons to be learnt. This is because the Islam preached by our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. intends only to protect the welfare of human beings. 
  • We must realise that our wealth is never ours solely - it belongs to Allah. And just as He has stipulated the portions for each beneficiary, He has also attached responsibilities to each of these portions. 
  • Islam, in addition to justice, also emphasises the values of compassion and mercy when dealing with inheritance.
