Yes, we can produce a long list of steps that can be taken to promote peace. The list includes education, communication, understanding, economic assistance, negotiation, statesmanship, treaties, protocols and other government mechanisms to minimize resistance and resolve disputes. However, we know from unlucky experience that these approaches do not always achieve something.
There is another major force for peace, and I am personally influenced through the lessons of history, witnessed by science and confirmed by culture that beacon of hope. It is a force which offers civilization the best hope for extensive and lasting accord around the globe. Islam, the only solution to world peace.
‘Challenge your soul’ is the terminology we used to reflect man’s search and need for ‘inner’ peace, happiness and tranquility. This translates in ones pursuit of the worldly gratifications, such as money, power, wealth and recognition. For them it is not just a choice a life-style but a system of life, hence becomes religion. For others, such gratifications can be had from seeking a meaning, understanding and conviction of the purpose of life. Their quest usually takes them to acknowledging a divine order and the pursuit to please “The Supreme and Guardian over all” in hope of a time immortal with eternal, happiness and tranquility. For them this is not only a choice of a system of life but also preference of a life-style.
Islam, is both a system of life and a choice of life-style, it offers both the promise of a true success in life and answering the question of the reason of life. If offers peace, happiness and tranquility both in this life and life after death, a time that is eternal. Islam also offers peace in all aspects of the person and their relationships. Peace in their relationship with God, family, friends, community, government. It covers the harmony in all areas and faculty of our lives.
The word Islam, translates from Arabic as peace and it is the very essence of peace. So why have Islam today become synonyms with war, conflict, violence, intolerance, repression and poverty. This because Islam is the best product with Muslims who are the worst sales men.
