The lovelessness, unhappiness and conflict in society are increasing day by day. A report concerning children in Britain has set out how they are being “DEMONIZED” by society. The report states that attitudes toward youngsters generally are hardening, and that a great number are in detention. This once again reveals how crucially important it is for society to live by the moral values of the Qur’an. People who abide by the moral virtues of the Qur’an have very great compassion for one another. It is impossible for there to be lovelessness, unhappiness or conflict among such people. Our Almighty Lord reveals this in verses:
A Light has come to you from Allah and a Clear Book. By it, Allah guides those who follow what pleases Him to the ways of Peace. He will bring them from the darkness to the light by His permission, and guide them to a straight path. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 15-16)
Other Muslims have closer ties to the Muslims than their own selves. They protect, elevate and value each other before themselves. When it comes to children needing protection, they set themselves to one side and enthusiastically and affectionately help them for Allah’s (God’s) approval. That is why there is always peace in Muslim societies. There is no conflict or crime because everyone behaves in a manner of which Allah will approve. Believers who fear Allah treat one another with enormous loyalty and compassion. By Allah’s will, they are able to live together in peace, happiness and love. There can be no lovelessness or unhappiness among people who possess an intense love and fear of Allah. In the Qur’an, Allah praises love and solidarity and commands people to have moral virtues. Human nature is predisposed to love and beauty. Human beings want to be happy. But when they seek happiness through worldly means they fall into a great error and are totally unable to find the peace, security and love they seek.
Allah reveals in a verse that human nature is created to be compatible with Qur’anic moral values:
So set your face firmly towards the Religion, as a pure natural believer, Allah’s natural pattern on which He made mankind. There is no changing Allah’s creation. That is the true Religion – but most people do not know it. (Surat ar-Rum, 30)
Greed for money or material possessions is one of satan’s snares. When people live without thinking of the Hereafter, without faith, solely for their own worldly interests, they literally become friends of satan. But in doing this, they are heedless of the following verse of the Qur’an:
… Satan always leaves man in the lurch. (Surat al-Furqan, 29)
That is why it has become almost nothing out of the ordinary to come across increasing numbers of reports of “demonization” in the press. The numbers of children committing crimes, and aggressive people, murderers and perverts, have reached terrifying proportions. The solution is to live in full compliance with the moral values of the Qur’an, and to act out of a love and fear of Allah.
