Peace in the Quran: Part I

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | Aug 09, 2020

The Quran is undoubtedly a book of peace. It is not a book of war and violence.

This can be judged from the fact that all of the Quran’s pronouncements are directly or indirectly related to peace.

Avoiding the useless

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | July 19, 2020

The Quran advocates a purposeful life. It exhorts people not to indulge in useless talk or useless activity. On this subject there is a particularly apt verse in the Chapter Al-Muminun (The Believers) of the Quran:

“Successful indeed are the believers, those who are humble in their prayer; and those who turn away from everything vain.” (23: 1-3)

The realistic approach

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | June 28, 2020

According to religious traditions, God created the human being and settled him in Paradise. But after some time, man committed a grave error and was sent down to earth.

According to this story of creation, we lost our initial advantage and since then only the second best has been available to us. This story shows us the right direction for our lives.

Goodness in every situation

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | June 20, 2020

Strange are the ways ofa believer, for there is good for him in every situation. And this is not true for anyone except for a believer. If he has an occasion of happiness, he is grateful, thus this happiness becomes good for him. If a difficulty befalls him, he keeps patience over it, and so the difficulty becomes good for him. (Sahih Muslim)
