Peace, Love and Hope for Humanity!
An Eid Greeting to All from Dr. Pasha and
www.IslamicSolutions.com Family

Dr. Pasha

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)

 

Calling all Jews, Hindus, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists and everyone else everywhere! Come share with us the joys and blessings of this Eid. Also, on this happiest of days, come shed with us a few tears for all that is wrong with our common human family everywhere.

The blessed and most beautiful month of Ramadan 1429 has drawn to a close. On this most joyous and felicitous occasion, our greeting to all – Muslim and non-Muslim alike all over the world – is Salaam: Peace! Love! Hope for Humanity!

Suffice it to say that peace is one of the most essential requirements of human life on earth. Hence the maker of humanity and the world, God Almighty, sent down a system whose very name is derived from the root of peace – Salaam – to show and guide humanity to the path of peace: peace right here in this world and eternal and everlasting peace in the next world.

And he, God Almighty, the maker and master of the worlds, made “Peace!” the common mode of greeting among those who will be smart and good enough to embrace that divine gift of “Peace!” from their loving master God.

But Salaam is more than a mere greeting. It is much more than a simple equivalent to “Hi!” or “Hello!” It is a profound and comprehensive prayer – as profound and comprehensive as it can be. It is a prayer that asks God to shower upon those to whom it is addressed all the most wonderful blessings that this world has to offer.

Salaam is thus a very special gift to all of humanity directly from the maker and master of humanity who calls himself: As-Salaam – “The Peace!”

So, our greeting to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and to the entire world, on this most joyous occasion of Eidul Fitr 1429 is: Salaam! It is our greeting to those we know as well as to those we don’t know.

Our message on this occasion to all is “Peace!” And the destiny and final outcome we seek for all in this world, as well as in the next world, is peace.

Peace on earth, and in the lives of all of God’s slaves and children, is our most secret wish and our most ardent prayer on this happy and sad day.

This day is a happy day, for it is a day of Eid celebrations. It is also a sad and heartbreaking day on account of all the terrible suffering and pain that seem to be the fate of all too many human beings in all too many parts of the world today.

Much of it of our own doing, brought about by our own omissions and commissions. All the terrible things we do to one another and all the good and right things we fail or refuse to do for each other.

What we should not forget on this blessed day is the simple fact that all of us human beings – Hindus, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists and others – are tied together in a single family unit by the common drop of Adam’s blood. On this day, we should also remind ourselves that God is our friend, if we will only accept his hand of friendship that he has extended to us.

Today is a good day to remind ourselves that no matter how dark and long the night that has surrounded us in the past, it will pass, giving birth to a new dawn of hope, peace, liberty, justice, equality, joy and blessings for all humanity: not just for this or that group, but for all human beings all over the world.

Ramadan was a month of practical training in that message of eternal hope and universal love. Ramadan was the month of the Qur’an.

This was the month in which Muslims and non-Muslims both should have let the Qur’an help them by reading it and seeking the answers to their problems from its pages. One great lesson of this Eid is, with the passing of Ramadan, we must all plunge ever more enthusiastically into the Qur’an: reading it; learning it; trying to understand it; figuring out ways to practice it; and allowing it to fill our lives with health and happiness.

The clarion call of the Qur’an to all is hope.

“Despair not,” says God Almighty in the Qur’an. All we need to do is to turn to him and grab hold of the hand of divine friendship that he has extended to us.

Wassalaam!

END
