Towards PEACE -1 by Nayzak Towards PEACE -1 by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],


:bulletred: One World

There is a very beautiful verse in the holy Qur'an, which sums up Islam’s view on multiculturalism in a poetic and succinct way. It says:
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
"O mankind, indeed We have created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. and Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. "

translation of verse 49:13

Note the Quran does not say, "O Muslims", or "O Arabs", or "O Pakistanis", or "O Bangladeshis" or "O British people". It says, "O Mankind", "O Human beings!". It addresses us as a species, the human family. It reminds us that we have descended from common parents, Adam and Eve -peace be upon them-, the primordial human ancestors. Our differences of culture, race and language are superficial. They are there simply to let us wonder in sheer amazement at God’s infinite artistry and creativity. Our differences must be celebrated, enjoyed. They are not an excuse for Pride or arrogance. All over The world, we face serious problems of violent xenophobia and racism, where differences are exploited to promote fear and hate. Muslims have become one of the main targets of this destructive process.

Islam stresses our common humanity, and appeals to our higher instincts of love, truth and justice.

The Last prophet of Islam, Mohammed -peace be upon him-, was the living Qur'an. His life example illustrated how people of different backgrounds can live peacefully together. In the last days of his life, he delivered a sermon, his final sermon, in which he set out Islam’s own view of human rights. This is an extract from his sermon:
“O People, your life and property is a sacred trust. Remember that you will indeed appear before God and answer for your actions… "
"O people, your wives have rights over you and you have rights over them. Treat them well and be kind to them for they are your partners and helpers…."
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab. A white person has no superiority over a black person, nor does a black person have any superiority over a white person, except by God-consciousness and good actions…”
“Know that every Muslim is a brother and sister to every other Muslim . You are now one brotherhood, one family of believers. ..”

This sermon is Islam’s declaration of Human Rights, delivered in 7th Century Arabia. Nothing comparable was produced until the United Nations Declaration of Human rights in 1948… over 1,300 years later!

We Muslims are very fortunate, to have such clear guidance from our primary sources, the Qur'an and the Prophetic Sunnah (Sayings and Doings of the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him-), on this crucial way in which people should regard human diversity.


Despite our many superficial differences, beneath the skin we are all basically the same. Did you know that if the whitest Caucasian patient lies desperately in need of a blood transfusion in hospital, his family, his friends and neighbours might be powerless to help him if they had the wrong blood type? Yet this very same white patient could be saved by the blood of the blackest man on the planet, if their blood types matched! Amazing! Our physical differences are only skin deep! We are more deeply and closely connected to one another than we think!


To be continued, in sha'Allah...

I hope this was beneficial

IN THE DRAWING: I got inspiration from this one [link]
the chinese word in the Asian girls' shirt is "love". if you read it with the jigsaw puzzle, it will be "love peace".

Wassalaamu alaikum

If I am right, it's from the God. if I am wrong, it's from myself.

يا أستاذ نيزك
ما شاء الله عليك عندك شغف و دفاع عن الإسلام كويس لكن. . . .
لاتنسى إنه أعمالك بشوفها كل الناس و بالذات صغار المسلمين و المسلمات الصغيرات في بيوت أهاليهم و هم لا يدرون عما يشاهده أبناءهم الصغار

لاتنسى يا أستاذ نيزك إنه برامج الأطفال كلها في ديار المسلمين بتطمس على كل رمز من رموز الصليب

اتوقع بتعرف شو معنى الصليب و ما يحمله من أفكار

نحن مسلمين بنعترف بالنصرانية لكنا ما بنعترف بالصليب

و ما شاء في مرة سابقة عملت لنا نشرة طويلة عريضة بتحكي فيها عن إنه ليس هناك رمز للإسلام و الآن حضرتك بتقر الصليب على النصرانية؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟
كما إنه ليس للإسلام الحقيقي شعار و أيضاً ليس في النصرانية بمعتقداتنا أي شعار

إتق الله في أعمالك التي يراها صغار المسلمات و المسلمين قبل كل شيء

و آخر شغلة رجاءاً إتكلم معي في العربي إحتراماً للأصولنا و معتقداتنا

الصديق العزيز الاخ رنيم , بالتاكيد عندما تحدثت عن ان الشعر الاصفر وسيلة لمعرفة الدين كانت مزحة ,لكن يبدو انها لم تفهم كذلك .
وضعى للصليب فى عمل فنى بالتاكيد لا يعنى اننى اؤمن به أو اننى اوافقه ولكن فقط انا أقبله كدين يدين به الكثيرين -أعنى أقبل التعامل معه - ولكن بالتاكيد لا أؤمن بانه الدين القويم ولاالصراط المستقيم بل هو من قبيل أظهار سماحة الدين وقبوله للاخر
ثانيا يأخى نن مسلمون لا نعترف لا بالصليب ولا بالنصرانية على انهم دين من الله أو كانوا من عند الله بل أن الدين عند الله الاسلام منذ خلق ادم حتى بعث محمد عليهما الصلاة والسلام , وانا ارى ان هذا العمل لا يوصل اى رسالة للاطفال سوى التعايش مع الاخر وقبوله ليس الايمان ثم ان اعمال الفنان ترى جملة وليس بترا فأنه كما شجع على التعايش والسلام فى هذا الاعمل فانه قد أنتقد التثليث فى الكثير من الاعمال وكما قال لك أعطه بديل عن الصليب يرقى عن الشبهات وأظنه سيقتنع بقولك :)

أتوقع إنك تتفرج على أفلام كرتون الأطفال في بلادنا
و كما إنه كثير من المسلمين ما برضى إنه إبنه أو بنته يتفرج على الصلبان في التلفزيون أرجوا ما ترضى لهم يتفرجوا عليه هنا

إذا أنت كنت مقتنع بالفكرة و لا تفتن بها
غيرك بتفرج علها و بعتبرها فكرة مستساغة
و الدليل على ذلك
قبيح ما يفعله بعض أولاد المسلمين من وضع شعارات فرقهم الرياضية و التي تحمل صلبان و يلبسونها في ملابسهم و للأسف الشديد صرنا نشوفهم بالمساجد
لأنه فكرة الصليب صارت مستساغة عندهم

و أتوقع بتعرف إنه الحكم الإسلامي يتضمن إزالة مظاهر الصليب و ليس النصرانية بحد ذاته

أرجوا منك الرجاء الحار تحس بخطورة وضع الصلبان بأي من أعمالنا أو صورنا التي ننشرها

القضية ليست وجهات نظر نختلف فيها!! لكن القضية هي قضية حكم شرعي ما عندنا فيه أي خيار

والله يهدينا الجميع و يصلح عقائدنا و أخلاقنا للدين الحنيف

إذن ماذا تقترح أن أضع بدل الصليب؟
Reply
:iconraneem90:
Raneem90 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
بدل أن تضع الصليب ضع علم دولة

عندما يتحدث الغرب عن السلام في رسوماته لايكترث كثيراً بالديانات بقدر ما يهتم بالسلام العالمي بين الدول
تجد روسيا و أمريكا مثلاً: كلتاهما نصرانيات ولكنهم بينهم عداوة وبغضاء كبيرة كما قال الله:
وَمِنَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا۟ إِنَّا نَصَارَىٰ أَخَذۡنَا مِيثَاقَهُمۡ فَنَسُوا۟ حَظًّا مِّمَّا ذُكِّرُوا۟ بِهِ فَأَغۡرَيۡنَا بَيۡنَهُمُ الۡعَدَاوَةَ وَالۡبَغۡضَآءَ إِلَى يَوۡمِ الۡقِيَامَةِ وَسَوۡفَ يُنَبِّئُهُمُ اللّهُ بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَصۡنَعُونَ
سورة المائدة رقم الآية 14

لو وضعت علم أمريكا بكون أفضل, و إن كان كثير من الناس سوف يتعارضوا مع الفكرة لكن هذا شيء خطأ فادح!!!! لأنه أمريكا مليئة بالمسلمين و أيضا المسالمين الأمريكيين

و كونه أغلب من يشاهدك أمريكان سوف تكون فكرة جيدة أن نريهم أننا حريصين على السلام, بدل من الفكرة القبيحة عنا التي يرونها في وسائل إعلامهم

و إذا كان لابد من ذكر النصرانية! إفعل كما يفعلوا هم. ارسم رجل دين بدون صليب, و أتوقع كل النصارى بيعرفوا أشكال رجال دينهم ونحن أيضاً

أخيراً أقول كما إنك باقتناعك التام بنزع كل الشعارات عن ذاك الشخص المسلم و الذي ايضاً ليس له ادنى قيمة مقدسة عندنا, أرجوا منك من باب أولى تنزع الصلبان التي تحمل شبهات فبيحة قد يقع فيها ضغار المسلمين
و كما أنه وسائل ترفيه أطفالنا مطهرة من رموز الصليب, أرجوا منك الرجاء الحار أن لا تضع لهم إياها هنا من حيث لا يدري أهلهم

و خلي دايماً حرصك على رضى الله و الحفاظ على أبناء المسلمين أكثر من قول أي إنسان

و أتمنى لك كل السداد و التوفيق لطريق الخير
