Aphorism: No compulsion in our Islamic way of life

The possibility of punishment exists and works as it does because Allah uses it as one of the means by which he shapes his created beings according to His Will, in particular those without His Spirit having been breathed into them. After Allah breathed His Spirit into man there is a much reduced reliance on punishment, ideally no punishment, because Allah has determined that there is to be no compulsion in our Islamic way of life. Man must ultimately do that which is right because he chooses the right by his free-will.
