Making friends out of strangers: part 2

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian | Sep 6, 2020

The fact is that all the men and women have common ancestors, that is, Adam and Eve. This means that the whole world is a single family, and everyone has that kind of attachment with others that is so noticeable in family life.

Making friends out of strangers: Part 1

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian | Aug 30, 2020

People, normally preoccupied with their family members and a small circle of friends, do not generally want to become familiar with strangers; they take strangers to be ‘others’. This kind of thinking is based simply on suppositions about others – and sometimes such suppositions are unfounded. Experience shows that it is perfectly possible to make friends out of strangers.

Divine Food

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian | Aug 23, 2020

Jesus Christ once said: ‘Man cannot live by bread alone.’ (Matthew 4:4) What Jesus meant was that material provision does not suffice. All bread does is sustain us physically. Further to this, one needs divine provision, or spiritual food. Without receiving such food, the individual cannot develop his or her personality.

Peace in Quran: Part-2

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian | Aug 16, 2020

Some people bracket justice with peace, but Islam does not subscribe to this notion. Islam believes in peace for the sake of peace. According to Islam, justice is not the direct result of peace. Peace only provides a framework within which we may work towards justice. There are so many examples in the life of the Prophet, which prove that the Prophet never bracketed justice with peace.

This can be judged from the fact that all of the Quran’s pronouncements are directly or indirectly related to peace.
