Abstract

Problem statement: This article begins with an effort to discuss the wisdom of discussing belief and religion in multicultural society in the world. Approach: The article focuses that human beings cannot reach to the entire truth even to the visible or experienced things through their wisdom, so to trace God's existence based on mere intellectual capacity is baseless. The misconception regarding the unity of religions or religious pluralism is also discussed in this article. The article is written in the view of solidarity of entire humanity with the following of one eternal religion, as well as examines Islam's major role as being the religion of God. Results: This article finds that revelation is needed beyond the human intellectual capacity. God guides humanity through the revelation on those matters, which are beyond human intellect. The concept of one religion, adhering to the teachings from God directly should be the central idea of human intelligence. Conclusion: The article finds that Islam has answered those questions, i.e., the God as a Creator, revelation, resurrection and the responsibility of human being as the most blessed creation of God. These questions are often raised in the mind of a common human being-a believer in God and often in the search of truth.
