3. Does Islam have a view of universal peace and solidarity and brotherhood in human societies?
25/01/2010

Islam, which literally means peace, submission, and obedience, is the religion of the universe. The universe is orderly, a cosmos whose parts are linked together and work together for the same purpose and goal.

Everything is assigned a place in the grand scheme of the universe, which works in a magnificent and superb way. The sun, moon, stars, and all heavenly bodies are knit together in a splendid system, follow an unalterable law, and never deviate from their ordained course. Everything in the world, from electrons to nebulae, follows its own laws. The laws of nature are quite manifest in our world, where humanity’s birth, growth, and life are regulated by biological laws. All bodily organs, from small tissues to the heart and brain, are governed by the laws prescribed for them.

This is why Islam is the universe’s religion, for Islam is nothing other than obedience and submission to God, the Lord of the universe. The sun, moon, Earth, and all heavenly bodies are Muslim, as are air, water, heat, stones, trees, and animals, for everything in existence obeys God by submitting to His laws. Even unbelievers and atheists are Muslim as far as their bodily existence is concerned, for each part of their bodies follows the course God established for it, from birth until death and dissolution.

Islam teaches that God, nature, and humanity are not remote, alien to, or opposed to each other. God makes Himself known to humanity through nature and humanity itself, and nature and humanity are two books (of creation) that make God known. Islam is the name of the code according to which nature functions in perfect obedience and by which humanity is required, but not forced, to live by using its free will.
