THE PRINCIPLE OF LOVE & DESIRE: Objective Of Every Action of a Man

The Primary Objective from Every Action is Enjoyment & Pleasure

If the basis of every action is love and desire (al-muhabbah and al-iradah), then the objective is enjoyment and pleasure from that which is loved. Therefore, enjoyment and pleasure are the primary objectives of every action. Likewise, pain and punishment are the main reasons for anger and hatred and the reasons for every preven- tative action. However, ignorance and oppression cause Bani Ādam to apply themselves to corrupt religions and sinful lives, seeking from them pleasure, but in reality, they only contain the opposite.

Complete pleasure is only found in the true religion


A clarification of this is that the actions performed by all of Bani Adam can be split into two types: either they believe them to be a part of a religion or they believe them to not be a part of a religion. Those actions they take as a religion could be the (one) true religion or a false religion. Complete pleasure is only found in the true religion. Therefore, the people of the true religion are the possessors of complete enjoyment, as Allah mentioned in His Book:

اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ * صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ

Guide us to the Straight Way. The way of those on whom You have bestowed Your grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). [Surah al-Fatihah 1:6-7]

And His saying about the righteous, guided believers:

أُولئِكَ عَلَى هُدًى مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ

They are upon (true) guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful. [Surah al-Baqarah 2:5]

And He, the Most High, said:

 قَالَ اهۡبِطَا مِنۡهَا جَمِیۡعًۢا بَعۡضُکُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۚ فَاِمَّا یَاۡتِیَنَّکُمۡ مِّنِّیۡ هُدًی ۬ۙ فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُدَایَ فَلَا یَضِلُّ وَ لَا یَشۡقٰی ﴿۱۲۳   وَ مَنۡ اَعۡرَضَ عَنۡ ذِکۡرِیۡ فَاِنَّ لَهٗ مَعِیۡشَۃً ضَنۡکًا وَّ نَحۡشُرُهٗ یَوۡمَ الۡقِیٰمَۃِ اَعۡمٰی ﴿۱۲۴   قَالَ رَبِّ لِمَ حَشَرۡتَنِیۡۤ اَعۡمٰی وَ قَدۡ کُنۡتُ بَصِیۡرًا ﴿۱۲۵   قَالَ کَذٰلِکَ اَتَتۡکَ اٰیٰتُنَا فَنَسِیۡتَهَا ۚ وَکَذٰلِکَ الۡیَوۡمَ تُنۡسٰی ﴿۱۲۶

Then if there comes to you guidance from Me, then whoever follows My Guidance shall neither go astray, nor fall into distress and misery. But whosoever turns away from My reminder, verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection. He will say, "O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)?" (Allah) will say, "Thus did Our signs come to you, and you forgot them; and thus will you this Day be forgotten." [Surah Ta-Hä 20:123-126] 

And He, the Most High, said:

قُلۡنَا اهۡبِطُوۡا مِنۡهَا جَمِیۡعًا ۚ فَاِمَّا یَاۡتِیَنَّکُمۡ مِّنِّیۡ هُدًی فَمَنۡ تَبِعَ هُدَایَ فَلَا خَوۡفٌ عَلَیۡهِمۡ وَ لَا هُمۡ یَحۡزَنُوۡنَ ﴿۳۸

And whoever follows My guidance, there shall be no fear on them, nor shall they grieve. [Surah al-Baqarah 2:38]

And He, the Most High, said:

 اِنَّ الۡاَبۡرَارَ لَفِیۡ نَعِیۡمٍ ﴿ۚ۱۳   وَ اِنَّ الۡفُجَّارَ لَفِیۡ جَحِیۡمٍ ﴿ۚۖ۱۴

Verily, the abrar (pious and righteous) will be in delight (Paradise); and verily, the fujjar (the wicked, disbelievers, sinners, and evildoers) will be in the blazing Fire (Hell). [Surah al-Infitar 82:13-14]

The people of iman and righteous deeds are promised the ultimate pleasure in the Hereafter, and the disbelievers are promised the ultimate punishment in the Hereafter, a punishment that is too great to mention here; and this is something undisputed among the people of Islam.
