The Peace

To be safe from diseases means to recover, and embrace means yield. And to resign oneself to God means to commit oneself to Him. And Islam is submission and satisfaction. The word “The Peace” is one of the 99 attributes of Allah and it means the freedom from defect and imperfections, also it means calmness stability and safety.

Allah , the Great and Almighty, is the True (right) Peace and the very peace, which is far above every fault and imperfection. Furthermore, God’s existence is safe from death; slumber and sleep and His ability and self-existence are also for above fatigue and weariness. In addition, His words are free from injustice and lie; His wealth is safe from need. His supreme power is also safe from any litigant. But, Allah! There is no god but He; His patience, forgiveness, remission and condination are peace and His necessitarianism is free from futility and tyranny. Furthermore the Islamic law is peace which is free from contradictory, difference and disturbance, in other words God’s law and religion are correspondent to His wisdom; and God’s descending every night the world sky is peace. His wealth, hear, sight are also peace; and His supporting holy men is peace which is free from humbleness, as Allah –to whom belongs might and majesty said: “Say: Praise be to Allah, who begets no son, and has no partner in (His) dominion: nor (needs) He any to protect Him from humiliation” (AL-ISRAA – VERSE 111)
And the Peace is one of the 99 attributes of God. Therefore any one who ponders on the world will find that the peace is concealed everywhere. Consequently, the work acts according to faultless, precise system and the earth where we live revolves very fast around itself, and at the same time it revolves around the sun which results in the day and the night as well as the seasons of the year successively. Despite of those movements, you can find that neither damage nor disorder could break the peace in the world. The sun keeps constant distance from the earth. If the sun comes closer to the earth, undoubtedly, all the living creatures will burn and if it moves away from the earth, surely, all the creatures will become frozen. There are lots of planets. They revolve in their orbits round the sun. some of these planets are many times as big as the earth in terms of size and volume. But what might happen if one of these planets swerves from its orbit and collides with the earth? Undoubtedly, the earth will be destroyed completely. And imagine that the earth has lost its force to gravitate the objects that are over it. Wouldn’t they fly to the outer space without any control? And what if the crust of the Earth becomes weak or is taken to pieces? Wouldn’t the human beings be victims to volcanoes and earthquake? All the universal beings play their role without stopping and defect. For this reason the universe is in peace, safety, calmness and stability. And if we are stricken from time to time by natural disasters, it is because Allah, be He blessed, wants us to remember Him and turn to Him for help and safety. It is clear that these disasters come now and then when there is renunciation from the majority of people; and the purpose of these disasters is to make all people wide-awake and remember after forgetfulness. In fact the peace has spread over the universe after Mohammedan mission when people were living pre-Islamic times; and they were lack of safety, peace and stability because of their deeds. They used to do wrong doings and commit crimes without any religious deterrent or conscience. Even the previous faiths could not put an end to the state of chaos in which people lived before Islam. Despite of the fact that the Roman Empire believed in Christianity, the nature of life there did not differ from that of the pagan trines. We have read about violent wars that Empire was waging against all the states, in order and worship. Peace overspread people and the rate of murders declined in some of Islamic states. Truly Islamic civilization has reached Europe States and brought it out from thedepth of darkness to the light of knowledge. And “Islam” has been given it’s name because it includes Human Beings’ submission to Allah, the Great and Almighty. All kinds of worship purity the human soul and make him feel at peace with himself, with the universe and other people. Islam has, also regulated the rules which control deals between people. And those rules have covered all aspects of deals. We can mention some of those deals like selling, preemption, lease, guaranty, attorney ship, tilth, sharecropping, asking for loan, emancipation, gift, legacy and others. In addition, those rules are characterized by achieving justice among people and balance between their contradictory interests, consequently, this could protect them against fierce wars and bring peace, safety and cordiality. Furthermore Islam has imposed penalty on those who commit on e of the several crimes, such as adultery, steeling, alcoholice beverage and others which disturb peace and safety. And anybody who commits one of those crimes will deserve penalty to deter him from committing that crime. Besides, it is an accurate system which has been constructed by Islam in order to fulfill peace between man and his self and between him and his God, to whom belongs might and majesty. No one is described as Muslim unless Muslims are safe from his backbiting and tyranny.
Sofiaan Bin Oyaynah , may God be blessed with him, says: “There are places where mankind feels depressed and desolated: the day when he sees himself outside the place where he was, or the day when he dies and sees people he wasn’t familiarized with and the Day of Resurrection where he sees himself anong great assembling”. Then he said: God honored Yahya and conferred peace upon him saying: “So peace on him the day he was born, the day he dies, and the day he will be raised up to life (again)!” (MARYAM – VERSE 15)
As if he indicates that God, the Great and Almighty protect (save) Yahya – peace be upon him from the badness of these three places and He saved them from it’s fear. So, if Muslim greets other Muslim by saying: “Al-Salam Alaikum”- Peace be on you. Then it will be as if he is informing him about peace from his side and protect him from his evil & calamity, as if he is saying I am peace to you and not a fighter (evil), and I am a fried and not an enemy.
The Right-Allah, to whom belongs might & majesty wanted to make Islam the end (last) of previous religions, so He said: “This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion” (AL-MADINA – VERSE 3)
And He said: “Those whom Allah willeth to guide, He openeth their breast- inspires their hearts to believe and follow – to Islam” (AL-ANAAM – VERSE 125)
And peace is a favor (blessing) from Allah to reward His messengers (prophets) and His righteous people … as He said: “There came Our Messengers to Abraham with glad tidings, they said “Peace!” He answered, “Pease” and hastened to entertain them with a roasted calf” (HOOD – VERSE 69)
And God, to whom belongs might and majesty said: “So Peace on him the day he was born, the day that he dies, and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)” (MARYAM – VERESE 15)
And He said: “And We left this blessing for him among generations to come later times, peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!” (AL-SAAFFAAT – VERSES 78,79)
And as He said –His saying is the right-: “And We left for them among generations (to come) in later times, peace and salutation to Mossa and Haroon” (AL- SAAFFAAT – VERSES 119,120)
And to whom belongs might & majesty said: “And Peace on the messengers; and Praise to Allah, the Lord and Cherisher of the worlds” (AL-SAAFFAAT- VERSES 181,182)
And He said: “We said, O fire! Be thou cool, and (a means of) safety for Abraham” (AL-ANBEYAA – VERSE 69)
And the God, to whom belongs might and majesty willing doesn’t want to keep the world in a complete peace because He doesn’t want to make the world as a residence place, but it is different in the after life when He (God) reward his faithful and dutiful people with the Heaven (Paradise) .
That God-be He blessed- wants the Heaven (paradise) to be the residence place … the ever ease (comfort) place which is not cutting by a whit (jot) of a misery (unhappiness) it is the place of the complete peace.
So , if we had suffer in the world from different diseases, then we will enjoy (delight in) in the peace place. If God will for us to be safe from the fire. With a lasting (enduring) health not stopping by any diseases that there is no wisdom and no justification. And if we were fighting and combating in the life for its enjoyment, we will delight in the paradise in cordiality is not stopping by envy, spite, rancor or grudge. So, from where these heart epidemic (diseases) will come to us and there is no one in the paradise (Heaven) is missing any thing. And the lowest degrees people in the Heaven will find all that they wish and they are immortal lasting in it.
When believers will meet their God, He will salute (greed) them with the peace salutation as He said: “Their salutation on the Day they meet Him will be peace!”, and He has prepared for them a generous Reward.” (AL- AHZAAB – VERSE 44) .
And Angels will salute them with the peace salutation, as He said: “Gardens of Eternity which they will enter: beneath them flow (pleasant) rivers: they will have therein all that they wish: thus doth Allah reward the righteous, (namely) those whose lives the angels take in a state of purity, saying (to them), “Peace be on you; enter ye the Garden, because of (the good) which ye did (in the world” (AL- NAHIL – VERSES 31,32)
Allah , to whom belongs might and majesty said: “and its keepers will say: “Peace be upon you!” well have ye done! Enter ye here, to dwell therein.” (AL-ZUMAR – VERSE 73)
And He said: “and the Garden will be brought night to the Righteous, no more a thing distant. A voice will say: “This is what was promised for you- for every penitent heedful one, who feared the Most Gracious unseen, and brought a heart turned in devotion (to Him): enter ye therein in Peace and Security; this is a Day of Eternal Life, there will be for them therein all that they wish, and there is more with us” (QAAF – VERSES 31,32,33,34,35)
And after they enter the Heaven, Peace will be their always (ever) Salutation from the Right, to whom belongs might and majesty, so He said: “to dwell therein for aye with the leave of their Lord, their greeting therein will be peace”. (IBRAHEEM – VERSE 23)
O , God, take us out from the life in peace, and send us peaceful and safe on the Day of Resurrection. And let us from the lasting people in your Paradise.
