From the time of antiquity two lines of thinking were always predominant, the materialistic and the spiritualistic viewpoint. The materialistic point of view states the human beings and other living creatures come to life according to a specific pattern and constellation of chemicals and molecules. On the other hand, the nonmaterialistic view point emphasizes that the life factor is something more than a composition of various chemicals. The vital life factor is purposeful and is responsible for the continuation and maintenance of both biological and psychological organization in living entities.

This life factor can be considered to be dependent on Allah for its existence and functioning.
