Agenda for a Purer, Healthier and More Peaceful world

 

There might have hardly been a period in the history of mankind that can be described as truly peaceful. But considering the recent international developments, it will not be unfair to say that we are heading towards relatively more turbulent times. Peace is becoming increasingly more elusive at every level. Yet, we are hardly serious about finding ways to achieve peace. Dr Javed Jamil rightly laments, “Peace is talked most and practised least.” The most unfortunate part of the debates on peace is that Islam --- thanks to the designs of the enemies of Islam and the behaviour of some of the friends-- is being presented as a threat to peace. The reason behind the growing Islamophobia is simple. What peace is, and how it should be achieved, are the questions that are being answered by those who are least qualified to indulge in this exercise: the ruthless political and economic powers of the world. “Islam means Peace” by Javed Jamil is a bold attempt to unveil the designs of the forces that are ruling the roost, and presents Islam in its sublime best. The most remarkable feature of his approach is that he is neither defensive nor apologetic in his treatment of the issues involved; he does not seem to have any worldly masters to appease. This makes his discussions candid and forthright. And when this forthrightness combines with his extraordinary literary style, which is both creative and investigative at the same time, the result has to be wonderful. Dr Jamil’s latest work deserves not only attention but also a comprehensive debate, for this is not just an endeavour to prove that Islam means and promotes peace, but is a challenge to the currently dominant forces led by the political and economic superpowers. He does not simply present the problems faced by the world today but also their solutions. His thesis can be summed up as follows:

Book Review by Syed Adil

The Title of the Book, "Islam means Peace" is a give-away. I thought it very pertinent at a time when Muslims the World over feel persecuted and under siege from all quarters. The title from the outset is apt and is an invitation to both the skeptics and believers to enhance and reaffirm their pre-conceived notions about Islam. For a skeptic a great opportunity to find fault and shred to smithereens the Author's attempt to convey Islam as an instrument of World Peace and for a believer to feel reassured about Islam being all that he thought it was and perhaps even more. How far the Author has succeeded in winning the skeptic over even while retaining the believer has to be seen. The author did well to quote the "UNESCO" definition of Peace as it is understood, accepted and pursued today and contrasted it with the way shown by Islam. He argued that while the earlier is the brain child of those who seek to promote their own selfish interests, the latter is based on the principle of complete submission to God, hence acceptance of a System of Peace as shown by God. A three dimensional Islamic System of Peace that is based on Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties and Fundamental Prohibitions is an absolute must for Real Peace is a very persuasive argument by the Author. On the one hand much of all ills today and on the other the maligning of Islam by the World media has its genesis in a flawed definition of Fundamental Rights & Duties. Javed Jamil absolutely insists that Fundamental Rights & Duties without Fundamental Prohibitions are a tool of the devil and an invitation to all that is ill in the Society. Unless Fundamental Prohibitions are equally well defined and become easily interpretable and justifiable, World Peace cannot be possible. He feels this anomaly can be corrected only if lead can be taken from the way shown by Islam. The Author by virtue of being a Believer seems to be completely at ease in making his case on the strength of what Allah said in the last revealed Ayaat (Verse) to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in which, Allah says: "This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your Religion" The Author's implicit faith thus enables him to trace peace in the order shown by Allah from the five Pillars of Islam (Shahada/Pledge, Salaat/Prayer, Roza/Fasting, Zakaat/ Charity and Hajj/Pilgrimage). He then goes on to take an in depth look of Prohibitions as enjoined by Islam. Again the Author is able to amply demonstrate why the Islamic Prohibitions such as Drinking, Gambling, Usury, Hoarding, sexual corruption, forbidden Foods and so on are a cause of evil and conflict. In respect to the Islamic System of governance, Jamil articulates that the ultimate sovereignty belongs to God. Hence all Laws need to be framed in the light of Quran by virtue of it being the word of Allah in its entirety and the Sunnah (sayings and doings of Prophet Muhammad PBUH). Consequently the Supreme Leaders are to be chosen from among the best of Scholars who are able to strictly adhere to the direction as shown by the Quran and Sunnah. To his credit Jamil is entirely forthright and eminently honest in taking on some of the trickier issues that need a lot of articulation. Issues such as Polygamy, Divorce Law, Laws of Inheritance, Women’s Rights, Banking Laws, Islamic Social and Economic System, Jihad and a host of other issues. One has to say that at the end of it, he did appear to have succeeded in making a very strong case. The Author has given enough reason for those who have views that are contrary to that of the Author to sit up and introspect as to their hitherto predetermined notions about Islam. Jamil further goes on to make a comparative study of Islam with what the other scriptures in respect to Christian, Hindu, Jewish and other faiths have to say about war, use of force and violence. The readers I am sure will find this a particularly riveting chapter, simply because here they are able to have a bird’s eye view of all Scriptures and what they have to say and make an analysis themselves. The Author has not shied away from taking a swipe at his own community. He argues that Muslims have forgotten their purpose and objectives. They have ceased to make any impression on the World community and appear to be insensitive to the larger issues that concern all as a whole. Rather than impacting on the hearts and minds of the people on the strength of what they are able to give and do, the community as a whole has become static and dependent on others for their well being. The Book especially in the latter half tends to become a bit of a drag when the author in his zeal to make his point resorts to extensive statistical detail. This I suppose could have been avoided. Also when Jamil sermonizes on the community's Do's and Don’ts, he tends to deviate slightly from what the Book aspires to achieve. However equally when he talks of the need for the West to look at Islam from the prism of understanding and objectivity, he does make a compelling point that this could well pave way for a better understanding, the dispelling of false notions and a convergence of approach to a lasting and more comprehensive Peace. The concluding part in which the Author makes an appeal to the Christian World in an open Letter sounds particularly earnest and sincere. Even more importantly it conveys a very powerful message when he combines his appeal with the verses 82-84 of 5 from the Quran.
