The Islamic Unity, peace, and avoidance of division and conflict in the Islamic world

Hilal bin Hassan bin Ali Al-Lawati

There is no doubt that we do not say slogans about the past, but rather we take lessons from it, and we take lessons and knowledge from people of pure souls who cross time and place to fix what corrupts us, and accordingly we are facing two parallel lines, one of which is based on building the soul and the nation on what this building should be. And the other is: What is the reality of this nation and this humanity.

The missionary person is undoubtedly addressed to perform his missionary role, which is not an extension of the line of the prophets, messengers and guardians, and at the same time takes into account the reality and his mental and psychological level, taking into account the challenges facing his message and the responsibility he bears to convey. Or the reality if he has gone off the path of integrity, but rather he must work according to the requirements of the mission, taking into account individual differences, and having insight to put the foot where it should be placed, and sparing himself and the worse message, and from here we will open the door to the important question:

What is the mission of the missionary built on? What are the most important missions of the missionary person? What are the obstacles to his mission? and how can they be avoided?

If we know that, we can understand well what the elements of peace are, on what justice is based on and on it, how terrorism can be confronted in all its forms and types, how brotherhood can be strengthened, and how the missionary goals of the nation can be achieved.

In short, we say: The only element that gathers all the positive reinforcements, and at the same time carries the elements of resistance to everything that contradicts the existential nature is: “Tawhid” and giving monotheism its right of centrality. It is all right for absolutely everything; It is the surest guarantee for the realization of a single nation, and for the dear, strong, knowledgeable and rich nation in all its capabilities, components and resources to achieve existence and sustainability.

A question may come to mind: We are all believe in God the Almighty and monotheism, yet we do not find that solidarity and unity!

Answer: If we go back to the Qur’anic knowledge, to the Islamic knowledge, to the knowledge of the two weighty things, it will become clear to us that the path of monotheism walks in two ways, one of which is the path of entry, but it has become as if it is the final path.

The other is the path of verification, which is required to achieve the elements of civilized success.

As for the first: it is based on the two testimonies, and with it, blood, honor and money of the person is respected as a Muslim, and this monotheism is required and essential, but it is not sufficient to achieve civilization, peace, justice and rights, because the only thing that realizes all of this is: “verified monotheism.” If the nation wants to rise by herself, and stand up in the face of the enemy at all levels and defeating him with peace and insight, it must rise itself to the realization of “tawheed,” that is, to wear the dress of monotheism, that is, to achieve the names and attributes of God, and the way to achieve that is only: “piety.” And not in any manner of piety, but rather Quranic piety, then a set of concepts will become clear to us, including:

Justice, and is it governed by legal provisions, or are its rulings according to its existential nature, and are its rulings imposed out of the subjective needs of beings? Is the same true of the concept of rights? And is the same the case with regard to peace?

We are in a time of openness to everyone, which widened the circles of both positive and negative concepts, such as coexistence as a positive characteristic, and such as terrorism as a negative characteristic, so it was necessary to deal with these vocabulary according to the requirements of human nature, and the requirements of pure monotheism.

Monotheism, essential needs, honor, organizational and foundational role, moral values, humanity, brotherhood, terrorism
