Perfect Your Belief By Promoting Global Peace, Upholding Justice, And Supporting The Needy

Islam Incorporates The Idea Of Establishing World Peace Key points: 1. He who has three characteristics has perfected belief; holding a sense of justice in oneself, offering peace to the world, and spending in the cause of Allah despite difficult circumstances. 2. Hazrat Ammar is an example who advocated peacemaking rather than retribution despite the fact he suffered horrendous persecution at the hands of the tyrants of Makkah 3. Islamic teachings hold that administering justice must be done with the intention of establishing pure justice rather than out of desperation, coercion, political pressure, or affection. ------- By Kaniz Fatma, New Age Islam 22 November 2022 Islam entails bringing peace to the world, according to the title of a chapter that the Muhaddeseen penned for their hadith books. In this chapter, Imam Bukhari mentions three key lessons of Islam: first, uphold justice without fear or bias; second, promote world peace; and third, spend in the way of Allah despite material difficulties, such as by providing for the needs of the underprivileged and impoverished. Imam Bukhari recounts 'Ammar ibn Yasir as saying, "Whoever has three traits has perfected the faith: holding a sense of justice in yourself, spending in charity despite tough circumstances, and offering peace to the world." This statement follows the title "Offering peace is a part of Islam." Hazrat Ammar stated this. His mother's name is Sumayya, and his father's name is Yasir. After embracing Islam, Hazrat Sumayya, the mother of Hazrat Ammar, was viciously attacked by Abu Jahl; nonetheless, she did not reject her beliefs. Thus, she became the first Muslim martyr. Hazrat Ammar and his father were made to lie on scorching, rocky ground as they endured excruciating pain that disrupted their senses. When the oppressors of Makkah had thrown Hazrat Ammar into the flames, the Holy Prophet lifted his hands and prayed, "O Flames, cool down on Ammar and be safe as you cooled down on Hazrat Ibrahim (peace be upon him)." It is now evident that Hazrat Ammar was one of those companions who was subjected to severe repression and persecution at the hands of Makkah's tyrants. But see how calmly he imparts knowledge in his talks. He is educating people on how to promote peace. It is clear from Hazrat Ammar's aforementioned statement that Islam, which has taught the development of peace across the world, cannot ever teach terrorism. As a result, it must be emphasized that individuals who support terrorism in the name of Islam are in no way genuine Muslims. One of the things that make one's belief perfect, in the opinion of Hazrat Ammar, is having a sense of fairness within oneself. Why is that relevant? The person with an interior sense of justice is the one who genuinely establishes justice in the truest sense. It is implied that nothing should stand in the way of justice, even pressure, fear, love, or other human emotions. Allah will reward anybody who upholds justice in its purest form. Anyone with a genuine sense of justice rejects emotional behaviour, and such a person is only concerned with establishing justice and fairness. He is unconcerned by any relationship, pressure, or fear while doing justice. His sole objective is to uphold justice. By doing this, he simultaneously upholds two rights—the rights of Allah and those of people, which are fundamental Islamic teachings. This education also includes educating people on how to spread peace not just verbally but also through their actions and moral character. The third education is then to spend money in Allah's way while being poor. Islam is a religion of humanity and compassion, as can be seen by taking this into consideration. Islam says that we should help the poor, the needy, and the vulnerable. Money spent on those in need is truly money spent in Allah's way. The essence of this message makes it clear that Allah Almighty loves these people in need so much that He considers anyone who provides for their needs to be a spender in His own cause. ----- Kaniz Fatma is a classic Islamic scholar and a regular columnist for New Age Islam.
