Many people today are looking for a way to establish a way of
life that will bring them contentment, inner certainty and peace.
Some of these seekers believe they will find the happiness and
peace of mind they are looking for in religions such as Hinduism
or Buddhism. Many people have been influenced by these eastern
religions because of their aura of mystery and mysticism, and
because they make use of techniques such as meditation, and because
of the unusual attitudes, dress, manner of speech and religious
practices of those who follow them. However, these religions espouse
many beliefs and practices that conflict with reason and logic.
The belief in karma is one such characteristic of these religions
that are currently attracting interest in our countries. Although
it encourages people to adopt certain positive moral qualities,
the philosophy of karma also contains several erroneous and superstitious
beliefs. It is not possible for these superstitions, which form
the basis of the belief in karma, to become a way to freedom for
humanity or to bring people genuine inner certainty and peace
of mind. On the contrary, they cause even greater spiritual confusion.
The way to ensuring real happiness and peace of mind in this world
is the religion of Islam and its source, the Quran which our
Lord, Allah, the One and Only Lord of the universe, chose for
humanity in order to restore the truths previously revealed to
Prophets and Messengers among all peoples on earth but forgotten
and corrupted to some extent almost everywhere.
This site deals both with those aspects of the belief in karma
that concern good ethical practices that accord with the teachings
of the Quran, and with those erroneous aspects that accord neither
with the Quran, nor with human reason and nor with human conscience.
