One of the beautiful attribute of Allah swt is AS-SALAAM- THE PERFECTION, THE SOURCE OF PEACE.
We are living in times where we are witnessing oppression, fear, threat at both physical and mental levels and the irony is that the oppressors are doing it in the name “peace”, this ayat of Holy Quran comes to mind from surah baqrah- “And when it is said to them: Make not mischief (corruption) on Earth, they say: We are peacemakers only.”
They are creating mischief and corruption in the name of “peace”and general mass follows them blindly in their false notions and narratives.
So what we should do?
We should not despair and try our best as per our capabilities.
And we should always remember-
Allahumma antas Salaam wa minkas salaam, tabaarakta yaa Dhal Jalaali wal Ikraam. (I seek Allah’s Forgiveness. O Allah, You are As-Salaam and from You is all peace. Blessed are You, O Possessor of Majesty and Honour).
HE is As -Salaam, we will find peace in HIM, and in what HE has ordained for us.
Our hearts are designed in such a way that if they seek for someone else than HIM, they will land in restlessness.
“In the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest”(Quran)
And similarly our outer world is created in such a way that if we will seek peace other than what HE has ordained then corruption and mischief will appear.
“Stand for Justice, be it against your own selves” is what HE has ordained in surah nisa and with justice comes peace.
