East or West Which One is the Winner?

on Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Today we live in a multipolar age of multiple civilizations. We’ll slight our attention here to just two—Islamic civilization and its Western Christian counterpart. What sets them separately, and on clash? And the large query is, Has Islam lost everything against the West?

We will look into some details about the nature and the effects of the clashes. There are several problems making the situation complex. Islam wants global peace and stability and the West also wants the same. The history, the recent past events and the current global scenario tell a quite different story.

The west wants “global peace” for its citizens only, the Muslims want the same, even Israel has its own form of “peace and stability’’ and we can see many of its leaders talking about the aforementioned just after attacking innocent people of Ghaza. This is the least desired situation. If peace is a global issue, then treat it globally, irrespective of regions and countries and same for other issues.

Objectively, we can see how Islam is successful in its purpose of delivering its message to the world, trying to establish Islamic Laws all over the world, peace and stability and human welfare in this world and the next world.

The Islamic message points at fortifying the association between man and his Creator, briefing him of his Lord and of his avocation before Him. It goes without saying that man’s knowing his Creator and organizing his relations with Him are the most genuine needs in man’s existence, and have the deepest impact on his destiny. This is in light of the fact that man’s acknowledgment of Allah the Glorious and his being joined with Him involve acknowledgment of truth, exceptional peace, and building life under the direction of aforementioned clear and iridescent standards.

The Islamic message points at protecting the submission of life. To acknowledge the humankind and protect it from any devastation or harm: “Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and He will relieve them of their burden…” Quran (7:157)

Islam points at handling agreement and accord between man and the planet around him, making him feel he is a part of this being and has his place in it. Consequently, he might advance in himself a general mindfulness of the universe, and reveal the knowledge and more astonishing reason for his being, to which he may be better associated and through which he might better comprehend life. He will hence uncover the unity of the general rationale which goes through nature. Social order and life, and by which he understands that his being is a part of this uniform and exact planet, in which there is nothing neither vain nor futile. Each sort of being is associated with an incomparable goal. Turning to Allah, the Great Creator of the universe.

By means of this sense, rage, sadness, isolation and critical loss vanish from man’s life: “Did you ponder that We had made you for nothing, and that you would not be reverted to Us? Allah is the most glorious Kind, the Ultimate Truth!”

Islam’s point is to empower man to perform his mission of growing and recovering the earth, and of building human development, and advancing life through information and work. Man has been made on this earth to exemplify the Will of Allah and His Wisdom as showed in His animals -the insight of changing, growing and making a ton of great and favors on this earth.

When we compare things on the basis of above mentioned objectives, we can see that Islam is on a rise, the message is spreading, and more and more people are seeking knowledge about Islam. Material economy usually adopted by the West is not going to support the world population for long. So be optimistic and pray for the success of Islam for which Allah has guaranteed.
