Embracing religious unity!

Aug 4, 2020, 2:26 PM

There is a popular saying that if ‘we want to achieve our goal’, then let us empower ‘ourselves with the weapon of knowledge and let us shield ourselves with unity and togetherness’. And the biggest strength of mankind lies in our unwavering unity. This, therefore clearly speaks about the importance of unity in any undertaking.

It is said that the foundation for our existence on earth depends on our ability to communicate, compromise and unite.

The Caliph General of Pirang during his recent sermon to mark the Muslims feast of Eid Adha locally called Tobaski made an empathetic appeal for Muslims to embrace unity and shun all vices that could weaken our faith. The call is apt, considering the fact that issues relating to religious division is on the rise in the country.

Let’s remind ourselves that it is our collective responsibility to stand up against matters that have looming potential to divide people. And those who should put-out the fire should not start it. As Muslims we should stop castigating one another and participate in issues that can unite the country.

As religious people, it is a collective duty to preach peace at all times.

Our glorious Quran even condemns speaking ill against one another. These are vices that are completely against the teachings of the Sharia and the practice of Islam.

Almighty God, our sole creator, who created the heavens and the earth, even cursed those bent on criticizing and castigating others. Such action only fuels hatred and enmity for children of Adama.

Religious leaders have a great role to play when it comes to preaching peace and unity.

Let’s learn to show love and care towards one another.

"All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth."

Mahatma Gandhi
