Atheism and its dangers

Atheism is the denial of the existence of the Creator (mighty and majestic is He), whether this is through a sick pattern of thought and morbid point of view, or just out of aversion, obstinacy and stubbornness. It is a disease that affects the mind, and results in an imbalance of thinking and darkness in the heart that makes an atheist unable to think properly and makes him have a misguided heart. He, therefore, is only able to recognize and see concrete materialism. As a result, he applies the ideas of the materialistic school of thought on humans and their beliefs, which lead to his suffering and going further astray. An atheist believes that Man is a mere piece of material on which materialistic laws is applied.

Having Iman in Allah, Who is the only god who deserves to be worshipped, is the quality which is honoured the most, has the highest status and receives the most reward

Iman ash-Shafa"i

All that poses a threat in that it reduces the reality of man to sheer materialism and a harsh rationality that is deprived of the pleasures and joys of the soul. An atheist- as long as he does not believe in the existence of Allah- does whatever he wants, whenever he wants, without being scared of any torment and without having any feelings of reverence towards any god. This leads to corruption and the eventual destruction of the human natural disposition, in addition to him being a disbeliever of Allah (mighty and majestic is He)or having a tendency to divert the acts of worship, which should be directed only to Almighty Allah, to others. We, therefore, find that there is an abundance of suicides in the history of atheists, whether they were intellectuals or poets. History is full of such incidents and studies have highlighted this. In a World Health Organisation (WHO) study carried out by two experts, Dr. Jose Manuel and the researcher Alessandra Fleishman, about the relationship between religion and suicide, it was proven that the majority of people who take their lives are atheists.
