in response to reader comment: Islam does not mean peace

Submitted by Keith Williams (United States), Oct 29, 2008 at 12:20

Hi,

Thanks for responding to my comments.

Yes you got part of it right but you have to continue that submission is what gives you peace. Inner peace inside you which eminates the outer peace that you display. Islam is peace.

Islam gives inner peace and harmony in the life of every individual who submits to God.

Islam pays much attention to the individual. It is the individuals who make the society. In order to have peace and harmony in the society and in the world at large, it is necessary that the individuals be developed in such a way that they fulfill this objective.

Islam teaches that the inner peace and harmony come through faith in God. Faith is to recognize God as the Creator of everything, Lord of every thing and Ruler of every thing. Faith is to know that this whole universe is moving according to the will of God and according to His command. The whole universe is in harmony with God. By submitting to God an individual lives in harmony within his/her self as well as with the entire creation of God.

Islam does not strip us of our inalienable rights. It gives us limits on those rights though. The same as the laws that we have to obey and are in place in our country. When you cross those limits you get in trouble.

peace
