What Does the Quran Tell Us About Karma?
“My business just folded, practically overnight! How did this happen?”
“I don’t know, dude. Must be bad karma.”
We hear the word “karma” a lot in the media but do we know what it means? More important, do we know what it means for us?
The word orginated in the Hindu culture, which believes in reincarnation and the idea that the good and bad deeds of your former lives were what determined your good (or bad) fortune in the present life.
But when you hear the word “karma” in a movie or a television series, it probably just means, well— fate: the rewards and punishments meted out to us as a result of our actions. That’s the sense in which we’ll be looking at it here.
Islam doesn’t teach reincarnation, but the connection between our deeds and our futures is stated clearly in the Quran and hadith.
The Quran makes it clear that we will be rewarded for our good deeds and punished for our sins, but not necessarily in our earthly life. Allah holds us responsible for our evil deeds and remembers our righteous acts, smiling favourably on them. The righteous will earn blessings in this life but infinitely more in the hereafter.
And [for] every person We have imposed his fate upon his neck, and We will produce for him on the Day of Resurrection a record which he will encounter spread open. [Quran, 17:13]
The Righteous Look for Good Karma
The slaves of Allah do not, as do certain religious sects, seek out suffering as a form of spiritual discipline. Neither do they wish suffering on each other.
And he who believed said, ‘O my people, indeed I fear for you [a fate] like the day of the companies . . .’ [Quran, 40:30]
Bad Karma is Associated With Denial and Disobedience
The Quran repeats many times with many examples that the fate of the unbelieving disobedient ones is far from rosy.
Similar situations [as yours] have passed on before you, so proceed throughout the earth and observe how was the end of those who denied. [Quran, 3:137]
And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals. [Quran, 7:84]
Then We sent after them Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were unjust toward them. So see how was the end of the corrupters. [Quran, 7:103]
You’ll Have Good Karma if You Tell the Truth About Allah, Even if People Don’t Believe You
Who lived out this lesson better than Yunus and many other of the prophets? Allah instructed them to tell the truth, regardless of how the people responded. And He rewarded them for having the courage to do so.
And they denied him, so We saved him and those with him in the ship and made them successors, and We drowned those who denied Our signs. Then see how was the end of those who were warned. [Quran, 10:73]
Good Karma Only Comes to Those Who Open Their Eyes and Fear Allah
The Message continually exhorts us to open our eyes, to reason, to seek the truth. A life of distracted busy-ness or wilful blindness does not lead to good karma. Cultivate consciousness.
And We sent not before you [as messengers] except men to whom We revealed from among the people of cities. So have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? And the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah; then will you not reason? [Quran, 12:109]
Whatever you have will end, but what Allah has is lasting. And We will surely give those who were patient their reward according to the best of what they used to do. [Quran, 16:96]
Good Karma Comes to Obedient Believers
Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve. [Quran, 2:62]
And if they had believed and feared Allah, then the reward from Allah would have been [far] better, if they only knew. [Quran, 2:103]
Good Karma Comes to Humble Givers
Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders [of it] or [other] injury will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. [Quran, 2:262]
When it Comes, Your Good Karma Will Be Beautiful Beyond Imagining
Their reward with Allah will be gardens of perpetual residence beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever, Allah being pleased with them and they with Him. That is for whoever has feared his Lord. [Quran, 98:8]
As much as Allah has blessed you in this life, don’t look to the dunya for the lion’s share of your good karma. Alhamdulillah, nothing the world can offer you can compare to the fate of righteous believers!
May your mind be opened and your deen strengthened,

Doing Good From Dhul Hijjah and Beyond
Why You Need Al-Fajr and How to Make it a Habit
ISLAM IS BETTER THAN KARMA:
Karma is a kind of yoga. So it is called “karma yoga”. Karma has three criteria:
1. The person who is performing this yoga, has to think that ‘I am not doing anything, the God is making me to do works as I am just a part of nature which nature is making me to do works and nature is the part of param atma or supreme soul who is actually God’.
2. The karma yogi has to do works but has to remove the desire of the results of works because krishna explains in bhagabat gita that deeds are not the cause of suffering for mankind.the desire coming from deeds is the cause of sorrow and so the desire or attraction or lust coming from works has to be avoided, and thats why the karma yogi works only but does not desire the result of works.
3. The karma yogi has to submit the works and desire or result to God and by this way,he becomes free from lust and desire and all kinds of anxiety of the world.
Limitations of karma according to me:
1. GOD is highest in honour and position:
While practising karma, one has to believe in Panentheism. That means, one has to believe that everything in this universe are just portion of God. Hinduism says the same that God is the supreme soul and from the supreme soul, other souls have come and the universe is also part of this supreme soul. Gradually the souls are covered with illusion and become impure filled with desire. So hinduism says that we are actually souls which are eternal,but the body is demagable. So the purpose of life is to know the nature of this eternal soul and become pure by different process like first idol worship, then meditation when mind is more mature, adopting karma yoga,bhakti yoga etc. Thus to be pure and to remove all the desire, a person has to pass birth and death on earth or on any other planet for several times. Then when his soul is fully desire free and pure, he will be free from the illusion and mix with supreme soul who is GOD.
Now if all the things in the universe are part of God,then the dirt, filth and the negative issues are also God’s part! Surely it is an insult to God and also it makes God inferior.
Islam teaches that it is GOD Almighty who is saying in the Quran that He is not comparable with anything in the universe.
“There is nothing like Him”(Al-Quran, 112:04)
And Allah is not a soul, but He is the Creator of all souls and universe and human and animals have souls, plants, planets do not have souls.
So Allah is above all the worldly limitations Who is the True Creator and highest in position Who is beyond our limted time and space and dimensions. So to me karma is not the true way because it makes God inferior by saying that we are the portion of God.
2. Karma is not practically perfect for people:
While anyone is practising karma, he or she has to give up the desire of the result of works. This is not practical and natural for human being. For example, if any student studies for exam, then it is natural that he will expect to get good result. But when anyone is practising karma, he has to give up the desire for result of the exam. So in every exam,he has to make the mentality in such way that ‘I am not giving exam,God is making me to do exam. And so I have no right to expect result either it is good or bad.I just have to fulfill the exam properly with all strength for God’s sake’. It is just abnormal. This abnormality was discovered by me when I came to know about the way of doing works in islam.
Islam teaches five types of work-compulsory(farj), inspirable(mustahab), wishable(mubah), discouraged works(makrooh) and forbidden works(haram) and also before doing anything it is said “bismillah”(In the name of GOD) and after finishing work,it is said “alhamdulillah”(all the praises and thanks to GOD). Thus one can reminds the Almighty God and worship Him every moment.
So, Islam shows a better and easier way of gradual purification of both body and soul than karma.
Thats true in Islam no reincarnation,Karma also not in Islam, we have Kifarah. What you give, you’ll get back; either its in a good way or vice versa. Allah is fair, you know?
There’s no karma in islam. Sometimes we might misunderstanding or have less knowledge about islam that’s why we shud always learn and keep learning. In islam we have kifarah. Kifarah means the consideration from Allah towards us as replying for our sins in this temporary world. What u give u will get back. Always do good to people
What Karma Is and What Karma Isn’t
I hear this a lot: “What comes around goes around.”
I love the saying, and I also love saying it. And I love saying, “Bad karma” and “That’s just karma, dude,” and what I really mean with that is, “you had it coming,” or “tough break,” or “it couldn’t be helped,” but like many people who grew up with too many Judeo-Christian notions it’s hard to really embrace Eastern philosophy without letting those old Christian concepts leak in, and I promise you, I am getting it all wrong, because karma is not “what comes around goes around.” And it’s not: “You deserve that.” Not at all.
I like best what Paramhansa Yogananda defined it: karma is a habit.
The way I understand it, karma is the cycle that happens because a certain perception, thought or action (good or bad, doesn’t matter) takes root, and creates a cycle of circumstances and effect that is hard to break. Karma isn’t what happens to you because you messed up: karma is what happens to you as a result of a continuos cycle of attitudes, actions, thoughts, and perceptions. That is why those who think of karma as a “come around goes around” situation sooner or later start saying that karma doesn’t work: all the crooks seem to always get away with things, and we are always stuck with the short end of the stick. The irony here is that your being stuck with the short end of the stick is exactly what karma is about. It’s about how you can cultivate habits that influence everything in your life.
Here is an example of how karma is comparable to habit: if you’re in the habit of being rude to people, it’s your karma that you will always be alone or disliked. That is, the consequence of the cycle of your treatment of others is your karma, which in this case, is loneliness. Moreover, karma is also the fact that you’re rude to people: the cause is inseparable from the effect. You have somehow managed to cultivate a habit of rudeness. This habit has now become your karma, which includes the consequences of your being rude to others, as well as the habit itself, since the habit is something that you cultivated yourself, and therefore is now your karma.
So, as you can see from the above example, karma is not retribution: it is merely the consequence of your actions, which are the consequences of a habit from which you never broke free. In this case, the consequences are easily seen, but in some cases we have to go deeper into Vedic thought to understand how karma works.
For example, Yogananda once alluded to the fact that for some people poverty is karma, and he really did mean it in the context of habit. Those who do not understand karma can get angry at the idea that poverty is someone’s karma, but that’s because once again they make the mistake of understanding karma as some kind of divine decree, or divine justice. Saying it’s your karma to be poor is like saying you deserve it, which is ridiculous! Of course they get offended: nobody wants to be told that they deserve being poor, sick, burdened with physical challenges, etc. But this is not what karma is, really, people, believe me. It’s not how karma works.
Karma is the habit of your soul, it’s a natural manifestation of all the collective actions and thoughts of all your lifetimes. And no, it isn’t a “you get coal for being bad and candy for being good” kind of situation. Let me illustrate why that would be the wrong analogy.
Think of this example: you are born to a family where your mother owns nothing but the clothes on her back and your father is either unemployed or nonexistent. This is your “normal” environment in which you grow up. You seldom if ever come into contact with anyone who encourages you to do anything with yourself because, well, look at your role models: they have done nothing or could do nothing for themselves and they have no expectations, not for themselves nor for you. These are the kind of circumstances that cultivate your “karma” or cycle of habit. Chances are, that in this lifetime, you will be poor because your habit is to think of yourself as poor and to surround yourself with poor people whose attitudes are (not wrongly or rightly) attuned to breeding only poverty. Not only will you probably never have any real opportunities: if those opportunities by some stroke of luck did come your way, chances are you wouldn’t recognize them or know what to do with them. IT is not because you’re bad, or stupid, or deserving of poverty: it is simply because you are stuck in a cycle where getting out of your poverty would require unusual effort, unusual help, and, let’s face it, unusual luck.
Unfortunately, in the Vedic cosmos, this has consequences beyond the cycle of one lifetime. If your karma is poverty, you may seek a karma of poverty because this is what is familiar to you, just like for many people who were born in dysfunctional families abusive lovers continue to show up. This is because abusiveness, for better or for worse, what is familiar for them, what is normal: they had abusive parents raise them, and so when they grow up they (unconsciously) seek that abusive figure in their partners. It’s not what they desire, it’s not even what they may consciously choose, but it’s an invariable cycle that will continue to happen for as long as the person who is stuck in it continues with the same perceptions, habits, and patterns, and for as long as that person continues to blame “fate” (which in a sense they would be right) and doesn’t get help, they will continue to get suck in abusive relationships.
If abuse is your habit, then abuse is what you will continue to find long after you have left your parent’s home. Similarly, if poverty is karmic (a habit of your soul) then the tendency will be for your soul to incarnate in those circumstances that will invariably bring on poverty and continue the cycle of poverty — until you break whatever it is about your soul that seeks poverty and continues its vicious cycle. In the meantime your soul will incarnate again and again when it finds conditions that are familiar to it and to its habit or karma. Therefore, for as long as certain attitudes, perceptions, etc. exists, the soul will likely continue to seek conditions that will result in poverty. By contrast, a soul who believes it deserves riches and privileges will only seek to reincarnate during those circumstances that are most favorable to riches and privileges. That is why it seems that the privileged always get away with things. Because, well, they do!
You could be someone who is stuck in a cycle of violence, too: you could be someone who can never conceive of attaining anything without fighting to the death for it, and this attitude will be reinforced with each lifetime where this attitude manifests the same results. The more you drink of that toxic poison, the more you toxic you will get. Just as it’s true that if you’re born in violent circumstances (whether it’s in some gang-ruled district of LA or in some corner of Afghanistan) it’s likely that your future will be ruled by that violence and that you won’t break from it. It takes a truly special person and some truly special effort and opportunity to break you out of that cycle of violence if you’re born into it. Well, I’m sorry to say, but that’s karma: and I mean, karma works the same way. The more you grip violence as a habit of life, the more that violence will be your life, now and always, in all future lives — until you change.
It also means that it works the other way: if you cultivate a habit of nonviolence, of generosity, etc. slowly but surely (maybe not in this lifetime) the karmic habit will be broken, and you will start to find yourself in circumstances that are favorable to continuing a cycle of generosity and non-violence. It is not because you are saintly and some divine entity willed you to be rewarded. This is very different than the Christian idea of service and reward. This is a habit. Your actions and words dictate the environment that you create for yourself from moment to moment.
Because it is the natural law.
Because it is the law of the cosmos to find balance.
Because it is the law of the cosmos for all things to reap according to their nature.
To make matters even more complex, Yogananda also teaches that karma doesn’t just manifest on the individual level. An individual is responsible for his karma, but a country’s karma is the responsibility of the country as a collective, and the karma of an age is also the responsibility or habit of an entire age.
There are countries that seem unable to ever evolve out of a cycle of constant war. The karma of an entire country is a habit of the people who hover in that country. In an age when we only value materialism, it is and will be the karma of our age to be ruled by materialism. And so on.
So, you see, karma is neither “god’s plan” not divine retribution, which is really what you’re saying when you’re saying “What comes around goes around.” You’re saying, “Sooner or later you’re gonna get yours.” You’re saying, “You have it coming.” And when you’re saying “my karma is sickness” you’re not saying that you deserve sickness: you’re saying that sickness has become your cycle.
And as if this weren’t complicated enough, in some tangential sense, karma really could mean “what comes around goes around.”
For example, f in one life you were so careless about life that you engaged in and encouraged in others to engage in cruelty to animals, sooner or later, when you eventually reincarnate as an animal, (because it’s inevitable, because time is infinite, because all that can possibly happen will eventually happen) you’re going to be on the receiving end of that cruelty that you proposed, initiated or contributed to way back in that other life. (But time isn’t linear, so you may end up being a baby who dies of poisoned water in one life time and be born as a Senator who passes a bill to allow the poison to seep in the water in the next).
There is no enthroned entity who determines your karma: it is you. Karma is a Vedic concept which predates Buddhism by hundreds, maybe thousands of years. There are plenty of divinities in Vedic philosophies, but ultimately reality is a natural law. The Brahman (not to be confused with Brahma, a divinity) is more akin to the cosmic soup or unified field of quantum theory than it is to any Judeo-Christian concept of omnipotent divinity. Vedic philosophy is about the natural order of an infinite cosmos which possesses infinite creative possibilities within it.
I suspect that the reason why so many of us yogis and Buddhists and what-nots mistake karma for divine decree or retribution is because most of what we know about karma comes to us from English translations of Sanskrit texts that are replete with terms that have no literal translation in our language. Moreover, I think it’s nearly impossible to separate language from culture, and ultimately even the most open-minded and well-meaning translator is bound to filter these Eastern concepts through the lens of Western thought, which is invariable influenced by Judeo-Christian thought.
Karma, if it were translated properly, would probably have a really long and awkward translation like, “it is in the natural order of the universe that such thoughts, words, and actions as should arise and manifest will have natural consequences, which may be long term or short term, but that will invariably reverberate through time and space and manifest in realities that are direct consequences to those thoughts, words and actions, and thus create a self-perpetuating cycle.”
It’s much easier to say Karma. It’s such an elegant term.
What is Karma and How Does it Work?
What is karma? And what are the different types of karma? Sadhguru looks at these questions and explains the role karma can play in a spiritual seeker’s life.
What is karma? That’s a question that is often answered with explanations of good and bad actions. But karma is something far more profound than that. Yogi and mystic, Sadhguru, looks at these questions and explains the role karma can play in a spiritual seeker’s life.
Questioner: What is karma? Are there different kinds of karma and how do they affect us?
Sadhguru: What you call as “my life” is a certain amount of energy controlled by a certain amount of information. This information, in today’s terms, can be called software. A certain amount of life energy is charged with a certain amount of information. Together, this information technology is you. You become a certain kind of character because of the type of information that has gone into you. The past impressions of life go far beyond the moment you were born, but in your perception right now, at least from the moment you were born till today, what kind of parents, family, and education you had, what kind of religious and social background, what kind of cultural realities – all these impressions have gone in. Someone has become a different character simply because of the type of information that has gotten into him. This is what is karma. This information is traditionally called karma or karmic body or causal body – that which causes life.
This information is on many different levels. There are four dimensions, two of which are not relevant right now. For understanding, we can talk about the other two. One is sanchita karma. This is the warehouse of karma which goes right back to a single-celled animal and even inanimate substances from where life evolved. All the information is there. If you close your eyes, become aware enough and look into yourself, you will know the nature of the universe – not because you are looking at it through your head, but simply because this information is present in the making of the body. There is a warehouse of information going back into creation. That is your sanchita karma. But you cannot take your warehouse and do retail business. You need to have a shop to do retail. That “retail shop,” which is for this life, is called prarabdha.
Prarabdha karma is a certain amount of information allotted for this life. Depending upon the vibrancy of your life, life allots for itself how much information it can take on. The creation is very compassionate. If it gives you the whole lot of karma that you have, you will be dead. Right now, many people are tortured by the simple memories from the 30-40 years of this lifetime. If they are given a hundred times that memory, they wouldn’t survive it. So, nature allots prarabdha, an allotted memory that you could handle.
What is karma and its role in a seeker’s life?
Once you enter the spiritual path, you are making a statement, “I am in a hurry to get to my ultimate destination.” You don’t want to take one hundred lifetimes. And in the process of this one hundred lifetimes you may gather enough karma to last out for another thousand lifetimes. You want to hurry it up. So, once a spiritual process begins, if initiations are done in a certain way, it opens up dimensions which would not have opened up otherwise. You would have lived a more peaceful life if you were not spiritual, but a more lifeless life too, closer to death than life. Without anything fundamental being shaken within you, maybe you just passed comfortably.
So does this mean all negative things happen to you once you are on the spiritual path? That’s not how it is. It is just that when life moves at a tremendous pace – a pace much faster pace than that of people around you – you think some tragedy is happening to you. No tragedy is happening to you. It is just that they are going at normal speed but your life is rolling on fast-forward.
Many people have this wrong notion that once you enter a spiritual path, you will become peaceful and everything will be clear. If you take on a convenient belief system and become a single-track mind, then everything seems to be clear. But if you are genuinely on the spiritual path, nothing will be clear. Everything will be a blur. The faster you travel the more of a blur it becomes.
A few years ago, I happened to be in Germany and after we finished the program, I had to drive to France, which was about 440 km from where I was. Usually the journey takes five hours. I had no intention of staying on the road for five hours so I just pushed it and we were doing something like 200 kmph. The countryside was supposed to be beautiful in this region, and I thought I would look at it. I tried to roll my eyeballs but everything was a blur and I couldn’t take my eyes off the road for a moment. It was snowing and we were driving crazy speeds.
So, the faster you go, everything becomes a blur and you can’t take your eyes off what you are doing for a moment. If you want to enjoy the countryside, you must go easy and slow. If you are in a hurry to reach your destination, you gas it. You see nothing. You are just going. The spiritual path is like this. If you are really on the spiritual path, everything is in turmoil all around you. But you are still going, so it’s okay. Is this alright? If it’s not alright, you can go at the evolutionary pace. Maybe it will take a million years and you will get there.
For those who are in a hurry, there is one kind of path. For those who are not in a hurry, there is another kind of path. You must be clear what the hell you want. If you get onto the fast track and try to go slow, you will be run over. If you are on the slow path and try to go fast, you will get a ticket. Every seeker must always decide – does he want to just enjoy the road or does he want to get to the destination quick?
