Sowing the Seeds of Peace By Mutual Respect


Laiq Ahmed Atif, Malta

These days when the world has actually shrunk to a world village in a approach that would not have been imagined beforehand, we should realise our duties as human beings and may strive to concentrate in the direction of spreading peace, love and brotherhood amongst each other. As well as, it is usually vital to indicate respect for one another’s spiritual emotions and sentiments.

When somebody hurts one other’s emotions by uttering disrespectful phrases towards their faith or towards their holy personages, it results in creating tensions and conflicts between individuals. Such uttering doesn’t profit humanity in any approach. What may be the advantage of hurting such sensitivities that solely improve hatred and dislike between individuals?

We should due to this fact perceive that we can not sow the seeds of peace with out sowing the seeds of mutual respect between us. Collectively, allow us to construct a mutual narrative to all the time present respect for one another, for one another’s religions in addition to for the holy personages, God’s messengers and to the founders of all religions.

The Holy Qur’an states that God has despatched His Messengers to each nation to indicate them the correct path – the trail that results in Him. Moreover, the Holy Qur’an declares the piety and truthfulness of each prophet. The Holy Qur’an says:

‘And for each individuals there’s a Messenger. So when their Messenger comes, it’s judged between them with fairness, and they aren’t wronged.’ (10:48)

‘Verily, We’ve got despatched thee with the reality, as a bearer of glad tidings and as a Warner; and there’s no individuals to whom a Warner has not been despatched.’ (35:25)

In mild of those verses from the Holy Qur’an, it’s clear that Islam categorically states and emphasizes that all through human historical past, in each time and in each a part of the world, God has been taking good care of the spiritual and non secular wants of human beings by sending messengers to ship the divine message to their respective individuals.

This sense of mutual respect and honour for all of the messengers and founders of the world religions lays the muse for common brotherhood, concord, tolerance and peace, one thing which is quick disappearing from the world.

As Muslims, we respect and honour all of the prophets and messengers (peace be upon all of them). We imagine all of them to be the messengers despatched by the Almighty God and we don’t say something disrespectful towards any of them. Nonetheless, we’re deeply saddened once we hear baseless, unfaithful allegations towards our beloved Prophet – Muhammad (sa).

The Almighty God sends His messengers to the individuals in order that they will present them the ways in which carry individuals nearer to God and nearer to humanity. After we learn the teachings of the world’s main religions we discover that the core goals of each faith have all the time been to carry individuals nearer to God and to determine human values.

No founding father of any faith has taught his disciples to disclaim the rights of others or to behave in a merciless method in the direction of different human beings. Islam teaches us to indicate unconditional respect in the direction of all of the prophets of God, makes it crucial on Muslims to imagine in all of the prophets who’ve been talked about within the Holy Bible or the Holy Qur’an, and to make no distinction between the messengers of God. [1]

Subsequently, as a way to preserve peace in society, it’s vital for everybody to eradicate all sentiments of hostility from their coronary heart and to extend their ranges of tolerance. There’s a want to face in defence of the respect and reverence of one another’s Prophets.

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), the Promised Messiah and Mahdi, the holy Founding father of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Group has emphasised on this strategy to attaining peace on the earth, which relies on the true teachings of Islam. He says:

The Promised Messiah (as)

The Promised Messiah & Imam Mahdi, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian

‘This precept lays down the muse of affection, peace and concord, and helps ethical values, in that we contemplate all these prophets true who appeared on the earth—whether or not in India, or Persia or China or some other nation. God instilled their respect and grandeur within the hearts of hundreds of thousands and made agency the roots of their faith, which remained established for hundreds of years. That is the precept that the Qur’an teaches us. In mild of this precept, we honour all spiritual founders who fall below this description whether or not they’re the founders of the faith of the Hindus, or the faith of the Persians, or the faith of the Chinese language, or the faith of the Jews or the faith of the Christians. Sadly, our adversaries can not deal with us this manner, and they don’t keep in mind the pristine and unalterable regulation of God that He doesn’t give that blessing and honour to a false prophet that

He bestows upon the true one. The faith of a false prophet doesn’t take root and doesn’t final lengthy as does the faith of a truthful prophet.

Subsequently, individuals subscribing to this type of perception—who defame the prophets of different nations by declaring them false—are all the time enemies of peace and concord, as a result of there isn’t a higher mischief than abusing the elders of different nations.’ [2]

If we analyse the present worldwide state of affairs, we notice that the world goes by means of occasions of uncertainty and nice turmoil. This requires that we create an environment of affection and affection in order that we will take away the strain and concern, ship a message of affection and peace to all these round us, be taught to dwell in far higher concord than ever earlier than and due to this fact create a greater life and develop into acquainted with the true values ​​of humanity.

Certainly, respect is a core precept for constructing harmonious cohesive societies. Subsequently, allow us to all construct a brand new world, a caring and loving world, by sowing the seeds of peace and concord by means of mutual love and respect.

It’s my fervent prayer that each one of us perceive our duties and collectively play our efficient roles in spreading peace, love, brotherhood and respect amongst all individuals and in flip strengthen our relationship with our Creator. Ameen.
