The Religion Of The Ignorant
If a person fails to use his reason, he will fall under satan's spell and be deceived by the false faÃ§ade of things in this world that are actually hollow, transitory and troubling.
This also applies to courting, or dating. A young man or woman enters the emotional atmosphere they have viewed in films or learned about from those around them. They imagine that by entering a relationship, they will be the happiest people on Earth. But the fact is, they will soon realize that there is no perfect relationship such as they had imagined. Yet even that will not inspire them to think. They will simply believe they got bored with their old flame and need to start looking for a new one.
Alternatively, they see marriage as a great ambition, imagining that true happiness will begin once they have achieved it. They thus enter a vicious circle, which they can never escape until the day they die, since they fail to use reason. They have now fallen under the scope of the verse in the Qur'an that reads:
To those who disbelieve, the life of this world is painted in glowing colors... (Surat al-Baqara, 212)
They have joined the ranks of those described here:
And what of him the evil of whose actions appears fine to him so that he sees them as good?... (Surah Fatir, 8)
In another verse the situation of such people is revealed in these terms:
As for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, We have made their actions appear good to them and they wander about blindly. (Surat an-Naml, 4)
The adornments of this world are deceptive, because they are not real and permanent. The blessings in this world have been created only as an imperfect example of the true blessings in the Hereafter. It is possible to take true pleasure from these blessings only when one realizes that they have been created by Allah as poor examples of the true blessings of the Hereafter. The only way of attaining peace and comfort in this world is to turn to Allah. As revealed in one verse, "... Only in the remembrance of Allah can the heart find peace" (Surat ar-Ra'd, 28).
Since members of Ignorantism are unable to comprehend this, they forget Allah and, imagining that the adornments of this world are real, solid and permanent, they turn from the true pathâ€”and suffer as a consequence. The way that deniers are taken in by the life of this world is described as follows in one verse:
