Word For Peace
This short write-up is simply a presentation of my spiritual observation, and anyone can do it now easily. God Almighty has created the world and made the earth the planet of citizenship for all people regardless of religion, caste, culture and creeds, where Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jews, Zorastrians—all reside happily. God provides all of them with means of subsistence, fruits, vegetables, benefits of the sun, rains, joys of different seasons and weather, blood and bones, eyes to see, ears to hear, mouths to eat, legs to walk, minds to think and recognize Him, to name a few of the blessings that He has endowed us with, again with no discrimination in our religions, castes, cultures, races, genders and colours.
Interestingly God Almighty has created the earth for all human beings to live indiscriminately but sadly the humans of the world are divided into borders, countries and states. He has showed no discrimination but we have made such sort of discrimination in our nature.
When pondering over the documents required to be the citizenship of the world whose Creator and Lord is Our God Almighty, we find that He does not need any documents, such as old records of our fathers or fore-fathers, not even Aadhar cards, voter cards or any smart card. The only criteria to be the part of enjoying right to citizenship of this world is that you have eyes, ears, minds, hearts, and other parts of human bodies. Once you fulfil these criteria, you are welcome to be citizens of this world of God Almighty. To become citizens of this world of God Almighty, you do not need to identify yourself as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, or followers of any religions, because your being humans are enough for God’s criteria of granting you citizenship. But this right to citizenship is so much spiritual that it does not require any piece of paper to be handed over to its applicants. This is purely based on true relationship between God and Creatures.
One might ask me as a Muslim to present any evidence to prove this fact in the light of the Quran. I would happily remind him of the very first verse of the Quran in which He says, “All praise be to Allah, Who is the Creator of All Worlds” (1:1). This verse is very spiritual to observe and a solution to many problems rising and developing hatred on the basis of religions or otherwise. When God Almighty says, “…Creator (Rabbul Alameen)”, he means to imply that He has created the worlds in which all parts of the world are included in it. The humans are also the part of this creation. It means He has created all our parts of body, eyes, ears, legs, vegetables, fruits and others which we can very easily and spiritually observe now.
As for the plans of citizenship on the part of God Almighty, He has made this Law equal for all human beings, without any discrimination. Such a beautiful act of God Almighty is a lesson for all human beings to observe the will of God Almighty and enough for my objectivity of what I want to clearly say through this short write-up based on my spiritual observation that you too can easily do willingly. And definitely this is not a new thing, as you all have such ideas.
What we need to do is open our spiritual mind, hearts and eyes to see and appreciate that God Almighty loves all human beings without any discrimination. If it had not been His love, He would not have created them to let them enjoy their life and worldly means in a just manner. But it is we who have not loved Him by becoming good citizens of the world. We have promoted so much hatred in our hearts that we do not have time to love our God Almighty, not even to realize the meaning of loving God Almighty. God Alone is our King and we should live to become good citizens of the world created by Him Alone.
