Lesson # 1056 from Holy Qur’aan

Establishment of peace

Surah ‘TAWBAH or BARAAA-‘AH (REPENTANCE) – Chapter – 9)

Stage – 2, Verse – 24 of 129, Section – 3 of 16 (Part – 10)       


In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful


Everyone must understand it well that according to the principle; prescribed by God Almighty, the meaning of Jihad fii SabiiLIllaah is “A Human Organization”. Therefore, responsibility of human arrangement is imposed on the Believers of God Almighty and Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). The chieftains of the Idolaters of Makkah cast broken faith in this human organization. So the necessity of a separate human organization fell suddenly upon the Muslims in accordance with their own way, so that the mischievous and quarrelsome people might be seized with collective strength and effort for a human organization might be arranged.


Found out that the Muslims should arrange to organize themselves keeping in view that they would have to fulfill the responsibility of the organization of entire humankind in future. To meet this requirement, which principles have been explained in Holy Qur-‘aan, those have been caused to understand in Surah ‘Anfaal and particularly in this Surah (Tawbah), so that if the Muslims arranged to organize themselves according to these instructions, then they can arrange to organize the whole world easily. Those principles are as following:


Principle # 1.

To believe in God Almighty, His Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and the Day of Resurrection {its apparent signs are – offering prayer regularly, paying the poor-due properly, fasting and performing Pilgrimage (Hajj)}.


Principle # 2.

  • To accept that all the human beings are equal in accordance with their entire mutual duties and rights.


  • Adopting the tenet of co-operation in good works and separation from wicked and evil deeds.



  • To give freedom of thoughts and belief to every individual as these are his/her personal matters, on the condition that they should not be cause of interrupting in peace and ease including vexing any person in any case. One form of it is that no one can try to make faith-fellow and thought-fellow to any other individually or collectively, by tempting or forcibly. However, one can advice for good with gentleness and patience.


  • To develop human values, welfare works of the public, mutual peace and safety, and try to establish peace mutually.



  • To arrange for supporting the necessitous in advance and try to remove the poverty of the poor by every possible way.


Note:  Fancies of family, relationship, merchandise, wealth and property etc. cannot prevent the Muslims from performing their duties. Those people, who accept which is written above; honestly and sincerely, they are the Islamic community. Their decisions will be united. Admitting them will be incumbent for all.
