14 Nov Writings of Hazrat Promised Messiah (as)
Continuing our series of weekly extracts of writings from Hazrat Masih-e-Maud (as) from “Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam”:
If the body is drawn in a particular direction the soul automatically follows it. It is, therefore, a function of the Book of God to direct itself to the natural state of man: that is why the Holy Quran pays so much attention to the reform of the natural state of man and gives directions with regard to every one of his actions, his laughing, weeping, eating, clothing, sleeping, speaking, keeping silent, marrying, remaining celibate, walking, standing still, outward cleanliness, bathing, submitting to a discipline in health an in illness, etc. It affirms that man’s physical condition affects his spiritual condition deeply.
