عنوان مقاله [English]
Man’s true life is a multifaceted one which embraces intellectual, moral, political, social, individual and other dimensions and terminates into nearness to good in an evolutionary fashion. Man is endowed with the potential to exploit this life by God (the most high), and Islam, like other divine religions, has provided him with a particular strategy to bring this potential into realization and ascend him from an evil beast toward perfection and succession of God and in the meantime, bless him with the true life. The current study adopts a descriptive-analytical approach to dig into Quranic verses and tradition of the Immaculate to arrive at the religions’ strategy for realization of Man’s true life. It was revealed that the religion has a five-step strategy to this end which include showing the path, appointing the leader, preparing the instruments and necessities for departure, showing the barriers and the way they are tackled and showing he terminal objectives. Through these steps, Man can arrive at perfection and realize his true life.
