From the viewpoint of dialectical materialism the universe with all its elements - living, non-living, macroscopic or microscopic, consists of nothing but matter in eternal motion. This motion, from materialistic point of view is generated through unity and struggle of opposites inherent within the matter itself moving in an endless cycle of ‘Negation of Negation’ - from lower to higher and simpler to complex form of existence. The materialist concept of motion is nothing but a blind sequential transformation from matter to energy and energy to matter with no specific goal or purpose.
The very concept throws humanity into the whirlwind of uncertain futurity and adds to their helplessness with nothing to hold on in fearsome loneliness and gruesome complexities of the universe. Any scientific invention, as the materialist school of thoughts claim, is a step forward towards validation and authentication of their doctrine. Materialist views of science focus principally on its utility for fulfilment of material interests of a class or a section of people without least consideration to its ethical and moral values. This harbours an inherent danger of turning science into a weapon of transgression of Universal Balance of Justice (Meezan) and self-destruction for humanity as well as the universe as a whole.
The contemporary history bears testimony to the fact that most of the evils done by modern science emanate from materialistic outlook accompanying it and its dissociation with ethical and moral values. The verses given below confirm holy Quran’s principled stand in the face of materialistic approach to science and its immoral application.
-And they say, what is there but our life in this world? We shall die and we live, and nothing but time can destroy us. But of that they have no knowledge: they simply conjecture (Sura: Al-Jasiyah, Ayat: 24. Ref: Tafseer by Abddulla Yusuf Ali).
