Ridiculous Reasoning

Hazrat Hakimul Ummah Thanwi (rahmatullahi alaihi) relates:

In Kerana (a town In India) a lawyer once asked me: “Why is Salah five times a day Fardh?”

I said, “Why has your nose been created on your face?”

He replied: “It would have appeared ugly if it was on my neck.”

I said: “Never! If everyone’s nose was at the back of the neck, it would not seem unsightly?”

He thus remained speechless.”

Nowadays, there is a general habit amongst Muslims that they ask the wisdom and the reason behind every commandment of Allah. And even though every single commandment and injunction in the Shari’ah is filled with external and internal benefits and wisdoms, it is not necessary that we must understand everything. The true reality of Islam is complete submission to Allah, whether we know the reason behind His commands or not.
