SHAFAQNA – Islam wants Muslims to live as an independent unit and have continuous social order where every individual should consider himself/herself a member of one body which is the Islamic society and know that this society should become strong and powerful. The Quran wants Islamic society to be a preferred one as mentioned in Ayah 139 of Surah Al-e-Imran, saying: Do not falter nor feel saddened, if you are truly believers, you are superior.
Belief is the reason for being superior, what does belief do? Belief is the reason for unity and the base for personality as well as an engine for the dynamism of Islamic society. Ayah 46 of Surah Al-Anfal said: Obey Allah (SWT) and the Prophet (PBUH), do not quarrel or be in dispute with each other otherwise you will falter and will be weak; be patient as Allah (SWT) stands by the patient.
