Followers wore red hats, thus being called qizilbash. Shah Abbas the Great, another Safavid ruler was also religious, but shifted slightly away from the previous form of Twelver Shiism. Shah Abbas was successful in renovating the army and changing the location of the capital. With the army, he was able to subdue the Uzbeks and Portuguese, and conquer lands such as Mesopotamia. Babur (elaborated in previous IDs), a Mughal ruler, was also a patron of Islam.
Muhammad, God’s prophet, was a follower of Islam, and thus prayed to Allah, the Islamic “Supreme God.” Muslims follow Sharia Islamic Laws. Rather than having emperors, they had Sultans, as their leaders. Islamic Caliphates were able to unite the fighting tribes in the Arabian Peninsula, and spread throughout the Middle East of Europe. The Islamic Caliphates were soon able to conquer North Africa and the Persian Empire. However, as the Islamic Caliphates were expanding their empire, they were seized from expanding by the Byzantine Empire, in the battle of Tours (Spielvogel
This is stated by Rita Gross who considers the psychological and spiritual aspects of humans as explanations on why there are many forms of religion. She declares that religious diversity, which is an inevitable phenomena, exists because it is impossible for humans to conform to only one type of religion psychologically and spiritually (Gross, 2015). This notion is supported by William James who said that it is not possible that creatures in such different positions and with such different powers as human individuals are, should have exactly the same functions and the same duties. No two of us have identical difficulties, nor should we be expected to work out identical solutions. Each, from his peculiar angle of observation, takes in a certain sphere of fact and trouble, which each must deal with in a unique manner (James, 2014).
In the widest sense Dharma suggests all pervading rules or order that upholds the universe. This inexorable and unalterable order makes the universe what it is. Thus, Dharma is much broader than what law connotes and is used in various other senses such as conduct, right, duty and functions of the legal order. The fundamental principle underlying Dharma is uniformity or regularity of order which is universally accepted. From the point of view of a common man the term Dharma may be said to include three things, namely – religion, duty, and inseparable quality of a thing or order.In the absence of a better expression, Dharma has been translated as religion in English language.
The conflict between morality and religion. After having those arguments and discussions, I learnt to respond them in a proper way. No matter which of the religion or morality they stand for, we should respect and stand on their shoes. We would found that we share so many common values, if we open our mind to them. Self-leadership Self-leadership is one of my weaknesses.
Even despite his creation of the world if we are to agree and follow God’s guidance without question this theory shows us that we are actually instead only undermining God’s goodness. Another major issue with the Divine Command Theory is the non–moral commandments listed in the Bible. If we were to strictly abide by the theory we would have to follow every command God makes as if it were moral code. Certain commands God makes are still applicable in every day life, the 10 commandments and even others can easily be followed by a dedicated individual. However it is when non-moral commands come to play where the DCT begins to lose its meaning.
Justice is very competing term from people to people. There are also some notion of justice which is universally accepted. There is the notion of justice which differs from group to groups and religion to religion. As mentioned above these different notions of justice is categorized as substantive justice which is universally accepted. But how do we ensure that these substantive notions of justice is being implemented?
Additionally, profound questions are raised about the presence of God in almost every tragic historical event, unfavorable medical diagnosis, oppressed institutional setting, acts of terror, and natural disasters that appears evil, or out of character for the loving, creator and keeper of this vast universe. Moreover, modern challenges are plagued with myths and fallacies about the triune God or the Trinity. Worshipping three divine entities as one is a creedal responsibility for believers, that is met with faith and shielded in Grace. Subsequently, nonbelievers as Freud sees a belief in God as an infantile illusion believing our needs are met by an omnipotent parent. (Migliore 67).
The book of Antigone holds a variety of conflicts that affected the outcome and created a rise and fall to many characters. The main reason the conflicts in the play were caused was due to each person 's religious beliefs. This religious theme is seen throughout all of Antigone. The main character Antigone believed in a organized civilization including people having a religion and following the Gods words, while also binding to governmental rules. One major example of a conflict caused by religion is when Creon creates religious laws to act against many of antigone 's beliefs and not bury Antigone 's brother.
We must grant him his due regarding some of the absurdities found in theology. And yet, it escapes him that perhaps religious doctrines exist to serve subtle moral purposes, and that scientific fact is not their major concern. His opinions about religion epitomize all the myopia common to materialism and atheism. He forgets the profoundly inspirational qualities of faith; he ignores religion’s storehouse of literature, myth, and consoling rituals; and he entirely forgets the critical importance of religion in passing on a culture’s moral values. Had he understood the nature of man more deeply, he would have understood that only philosophers and saints can be induced to do good by appeals to reason alone; for the average man, only the fears of eternal damnation will keep his baser instincts in check.
