As may be established through observation, matter is not the thing served so that everything may be ascribed to it. It is rather the servant. It renders service to the process of the perfection of a truth. And that truth is life. And fundamental of that truth is spirit. (Bediuzzaman, The Words)

Nobody is doubtful about the service of matter to life. We see a number of examples of this situation in our daily life we even experience them. Simply expressing if our hands hold a pen, it is because soul orders it. Soul and the quality of life in it is in the rank of master, as for matter, it is servant. That is, what is being served is life and soul and what serves is body. In that case, soul and all functions related to it cannot be attributed to this servant and again cannot be expressed through it.

The most common definition of matter is like the following: the things that take up space are called matter, which could be divided into smaller pieces, which could be weighed and comprehended through the sense organs. Here is another definition that the scholars of physics of our age make about matter: Matter is the materialized form of energy.

In previous times, some people used to worship idols. Now the same sort of people worships the matter of idols. These new idol-worshippers are called materialists. But there is a significant difference between these two: Idol-worshippers acknowledged them gods, invented some sorts of obligations through their mind or following their elders, and wished to practice those obligations with great sensitivity. As for materialists, their worshipping matter has to do with escaping from responsibility. Because, they never feel responsible in the face of matter.
