A good society is one where everyone knows their purpose & lives it. The God & there is no god but He, Who has no partners has created us for worship & in exchange for that worship, He rewards us in this life, in the grave & in the next life with Paradise, eternity of Happiness.
There have been “societies” that lived their purpose, but very few. The most famous of them that we know of is that of the children of Israel. The early years while Prophet Moses was among them. But people are weak & they rebelled right after The God saved them from pharaoh. The God showed them one of the greatest of miracles, parting the ocean so that they walked from one end to the other. Water raised up like a mountain on both sides of them. But they, once saved, created a calf made of gold & began to worship that. But The God is Most Forgiving. He forgives again & again. But that forgiveness benefitted them nothing. They rebelled more & more, became more arrogant with each generation, till they began killing their own Prophets, which were from among their own people. But basically, the “society” is “good” while The Prophets were among them. But, most go right back to the way things were before the coming of any of The Prophets. The first 3 generations, while Prophet Muhammad was among them, the next, then the next. But we as a whole are getting worse & worse with every new generation. But there are still a few who try their best to live as righteous as they can.
There can never be a “good” society, because what would make it “good” will be all of the people on the same page. Belief in The One God, The Lord & Creator of all. Worshipping Him as He has taught through His Prophets & Revelations. And why would that make for a “good” society? Because with the love & fear of our Creator, it governs our actions, we fight against ourselves to comply with what is His Will not our own. We would not kill, oppress, abuse, lie, cheat, hate, fornicate, drink, do drugs, rape, etc. Because with a whole society loving & fearing The God, following His Teachings:
Do not kill
Don’t be jealous
Don’t give false witness
Don’t force women into marriage nor prostitution
Stand by the will of the deceased
If one is going to divorce, part in kindness
Don’t commit adultery
Be generous to one’s neighbor
Give much in charity
Would make us better individually, by putting into practice These commands, among others, which are the teachings of The God through His Prophets & Revelations. If we as a “society” lived by what The God has revealed, we would not have not one problem. Because He has given us a criterion by which to govern laws:
There would be no drunk drivers
Young mothers who don’t know who the father/s of their children are
No injustice in courts
With the occasional few, but for the most part it would be crime free, why? Because with love & fear comes respect. We would love & fear The God, creating the utmost respect for Him & His Laws. With that in place & the fact that we know He Sees us, Hears us, knows what our inner selves whisper to us, He knows us in & out. So knowing that creates God Consciousness. Example: your parents have set rules, one of which is to come home straight from school. Bell rings, schools over, your friends want to hang out. You let them know you have to go straight home. They keep egging you on & you really want to go. But out of love, fear & respect for your parents, you fight that urge, turn down your friends & go home. And because you are such a devoted, loving & obeying child, they surprise you with a trip to Disney Land. The only difference between that example & that of us as servants of The God, is that though your parents couldn’t see what was happening after school, the peer pressure topped with your own desire to just disobey & go, The God can see us, we have no secrets. The parents could only reward you because of what they knew, you came home on time. But The God rewards beyond the act alone. For He knows & saw the battle, I.e. the peer pressure & the jihad against your own desire to disobey. He rewards if we think about doing evil but don’t. He rewards if we think about doing a good deed but didn’t. If only all of mankind knew The Greatness of The God & the immense reward for belief & worship, not only in this life, but in the grave & when resurrected & go on to live for eternity, all of mankind would gladly race to believe.
