Man cannot adopt true morals unless he imbues himself with the colours of the attributes of his Creator and Master. Man should try to model himself on Divine attributes, by bringing his natural impulses which are themselves a proof of His existence and adumbrate His attributes intoproper use under the Shariah.Love, for instance, is a natural emotion, but it can become a great moral quality if used properly, i.e., in conformity with the attributes of God. Faithfulness, mercy, anger, honour, etc., are also natural emotions that can become excellent morals if manifested and put into use at the appropriate time and place. All these faculties have been vouchsafed to man because he has been created in the image of his Creator. In themselves, these faculties are neither good nor bad, it is only their use that makes them one or the other. In man these qualities should be exercised in conformity with God’s Act (Nature), and Word (the Shariah). There is no other solution to such a complex and entangled problem. I could go further and point out many other benefits one can derive from belief in God, but this much should suffice for now. I wish to make it clear, however, that I have only discussed the benefits which are normally obtained through belief in God, and have not gone into much greater spiritual, moral, intellectual, and even material benefits a true believerderives as he advances further and further towards God.
