Allah's guidance to mankind

From the beginning of time, when Adam (Peace be upon him) was created , Allah has guided mankind. The very nature of mankind is inclined towards weakness and desires - a combination of the body, mind and spirit that are constantly in conflict. If left to himself, man will certainly destroy all that lies around him. Being prone to greed, pride, aggression and all that is base, if left unguided, the human being descends to the state of being less than an animal. Indeed, animals, like everything else in nature, willingly submit to the laws of nature as provided by Allah. On the other hand, often if left unhindered by environmental or educational influences, the human being, will naturally seek Allah; truth and peace. Indeed the human being is a complex being!

Allah says in the Qur'an,
"Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould),
Then reduced him to the lowest of the low,
Save those who believe and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise)."
(Sura At Tin 95:4-6)
