Qur'aanic Verse 75:5:
5. Bal yureedu al-insanu liyafjura amamahu
5. But3, man desires to go on doing evil in what lies ahead of him [in worldly life].
3. Use of this word ‘but’ here is significant. It is not for want of cogent reasons that man would not believe in the Hereafter; the need for it – the inevitability of it – is ingrained in the very nature of man! But he suppresses this inner call of his conscience; for, otherwise, he would not be able to lead a profligate life, the Satan has lured him into.
