Religion is essential to human life because it promotes a belief of the unseen as the ultimate or absolute truth. In a general sense, religion has a major role in human life, as it aims to regulate human to live better. This article attempts to look at the existence of religion as a social reality, the nature of social life, its reactions to social changes and its role in public life. The analysis suggests that religion as a belief offers a form of life in which people of faith can live as virtuous and noble intellectual human beings and have something to hold on. Therefore, with religion humans can live harmoniously and dynamically in a society and collectively advance human civilization.
