The word “unity” is derived from the word “unit” which means “one”. Simply, we can call a nation united when all the people of that particular nation have the same beliefs, ideas and thoughts and they work together with peace and harmony.
“Where there is unity there is always victory”Publius Syrus
We all know that unity is strength. It is one of the essential components of a strong nation. Great things can be achieved if there is unity among the people. Similarly, Muslim Unity is the need of an hour. Once they learn to stay together, they can bring real glory to Islam. The Muslim countries will also feel powered by this unity and they can create peace in the world as well.
“Islam stands for the unity and brotherhood of mankind and not for disrupting the oneness of the human family.”Mahatama Gandhi.
Muslims are desired to be united on religious grounds as well. They need to develop a true understanding of the Quran and the existence of God. Instead of following the difference in the thoughts or classes, Muslims need to follow the truth in all aspects. It may help them to aim for a better life.
“Muslim Unity comes not from the triumph of a single view, but from courteous respect for difference.”
By collaborating with each other with loyalty, patriotism and spirit of hard work, Muslim countries can cooperate in economic development. They also need to follow common trade and industrial policies to ensure uninterrupted growth in the world. Muslims must stay together with love and sympathy, they should avoid minor disputes and quarrels so that they will be strong and no other nation would be able to attack or overcome them.
“Never hate each other; never be jealous of each other; never think ill of each other; never boycott each other. Always remain brothers unto each other, o servants of Allah.”Sahih Muslim & Sahih Al Bukhari.
Unity is the key to maintaining brotherhood in the world. It is important to support each other. Unity also involves the expression of pleasure and a sense of joy while helping each other. The strength of trust and bond between people can help to set up a good fortune. It is beneficial not just for one person but also for the entire community.
“If you will work in co-operation, forgetting the past, burying the hatchet, you are bound to succeed.”Mohammad Ali Jinnah
Muslim unity can work as a true inspiration for leadership and growth in the world. It is a way to avoid conflicts in society while opening ways for love and good fortune. Unity also inspires people to adopt humanity and generosity in life. This feeling is a must for the Muslim community that is already suffering lots of distress around the world. Muslims also need to find ways to organize in political, cultural and economic fields.
“Come forward as servants of Islam, organize the people economically, socially, educationally and politically and I am sure that you will be a power that will be accepted by everybody.”Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
