In The Name Of Allah, The Most Compassionate Most Merciful.

Which,in your perspective is better; to denounce this world and outcast yourself from the society and settle in a temple where you're not bothered by the worldly issues, or to use what you have to serve a good purpose and try to help people by being productive in the society and be a good member in it. Which do you consider better and more

If you ask a question like this, it won't give you answer that can stop the battle you are fighting within.

I could tell you to pick one, or none, or both, but neither of it would be answer to the real question you long to ask. And you know you can't give into any answer because it's not your own so you would forever doubt it.

Apropos, you answer your questions through your experience. Thus there is none in my comment. It's just a meaning to consider.

why not do both?not be bothered by worldly issue because it does not help you,to worry about every one else free will that you are not responsible of the choice and consequence. but learn the truth of the matter and help people that you can help around you with a good heart in understanding and truth. maybe that if you do that the world will change and issue and conflict will get solved and the world will be a better place. then people will not have to outcast them self from the world. so let there be light, Be the light that you can be,experience and enjoy.

if we are here to learn from
experiences in the material realm
locking up within a fortess
limits your exposure

you would then need more time
to unfold into your
and realize your return

very good point Fred yet sometime taking a step back and let thing unfold is needed. motion and rest. you need to acquire a balence, in that duality.and balence is found not in extreme but right in the middle,seing both extreme and how they relate to each other.

agreed, what some call Christ is the resultant force of Spirit and Matter in union to allow creation

The thing is my friend, there is very little we can do, and doing that very little is enough.You dot have to always think about worldly issues, and try to solve them. In time Allah will take care of them. Allah will reward good with good and evil with evil. What we have to do, is live up to the best we know, as good people. Because we honestly cant solve world problems. :)

So I'm telling you, do both 50-50!

it is not that we cannot solve world problem united and each doing is part,we could but because of the division we are not united why do you think that some are rich with enuff money to live a fee life time and some are poor and dying? why do you think that people wage war? is it not because there is judgement making a division?why so much darkness?(judgement,conflict,division,hate,etc..) when people should have a good heart in understanding and truth.and be the light that they can be.

@white tiger You see, you say something but what you want is for me to agree with you. This is how wars are made, by forcing someone's ideal upon another. May be as individuals we can stop forcing our beliefs upon others and contribute to world peace?
