How to Establish Peace in Society
In the universe, stars and planets are constantly in motion but they do not collide with each other. The peace that man yearns for already exists in the universe. The reason for this is given in the Quran: ‘The sun cannot overtake the moon, nor can the night outpace the day: each floats in its own orbit’ (36:40). Similarly, we too must establish an orbit of activities for ourselves so that we may cause no harm to others in the pursuit of our life’s goal. Thus, we do not need to invent the method of establishing peace in human society. We need only imitate the universe.
