Not by those who do not believe in God, but by those who believe in God, heaven and hell, and all that nonsense. True religion has nothing to do with God. Neither is it a lust for rewards after life, nor is it a fear of punishment in hell. Kahlil Gibran said, “Your daily life is your temple and your religion. Whenever you enter into it take with you your all.”
