Gems of the Promised Messiah & Imam Mahdi (as) – True Comfort is Tied to Religion Alone

I have observed that there are also many in this day and age who consider religion to be fanaticism and they do not hold any respect for it in their hearts. They claim that the dwellers of Arabia were savages and illiterate – that the Qur’an was sent down at that time apropos of their needs. Now the world has advanced and this is the age of enlightenment. Now religion needs to be amended to suit the present times. But let it be known that religion is not some absurdity. Quite the contrary, real comfort of the world and salvation in the hereafter are bound up with this religion alone. Those unlettered people of Arabia who were the sincere servants of this religion – their being unlettered was itself a miracle in that these same unlettered people, after coming under the sway of Quranic teachings, worked such wonders that claimants of great scholarship were utterly unable to compete against them.
