As far as Islam is concerned, this fact shows an irony for this religion strongly propels its adherents to pursue an excellent life (hayatan thayybah) both in worldly life and hereafter. Moreover in Islam, religion and development are very closely related each other where the level of development is dependent upon the implementation of religion in the society.
