The inner peace
A lot of people now days suffer from emotional imbalances, depression, sadness, anger and anxiety. Every human being on this earth is looking for peace. In the 82nd Ayah at Surah Al-An‘am, Allah SWA informs us something which was said by the Prophet Ibrahim to his people. Before this Ayah,the Prophet Ibrahim asked firstly in Ayah 81st “which of the two groups do you think deserves peace more?” “فَأَيُّ الْفَرِيقَيْنِ أَحَقُّ بِالْأَمْنِ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ”. And then in Ayah 82nd it was cleared who attain peace in their life. “They who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice – those will have security, and they are [rightly] guided” “الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَلَمْ يَلْبِسُوا إِيمَانَهُم بِظُلْمٍ أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمُ الْأَمْنُ وَهُم مُّهْتَدُونَ”
Injustice is not just disturbing something on the outside or someone on the outside but also on the inside, even when you do wrong with yourself. Also, this Ayah contains a beautiful meaning, Allah is describing the case inwhich you commit injustice to someone else you’ve actually disturbed something inside you! That kind of people who have faith can avoid injustice, those are the people that deserve peace. They will have peace inside themselves.
We can see soldiers who come from war witnessing atrocities or committed atrocities, after their return back, they face suicide, nightmares or inability to build relationships, or sleeping disorders. This mainly happens because they were damaged inside. They don’t have any peace anymore and they can’t live without it. Everyone may suffer lack of inner peace, starting from criminals to normal people. We are always vulnerable to do sins and fatal mistakes all the the time. Each one of us has this weakness to sins and mistakes. In many stages of our life we face inner peace disorders. But Allah has given us a complete and ultimate guidance, which it can be found in the Holy Quran and Sunnah.
Faith gives you calm, peace and tranquility. You’re not jittery. You’re not disturbed. You’re not just constantly in the need for other reforms. You’re just at rest. You have an inner peace! You mess yourself up when you keep using entertainment more and more to fill the empty space inside you. It’s just tearing you apart. Thus we need to decide to stop putting spiritual toxic inside ourselves. We need the revelation in our life and for our souls. We need to renew our relation with the Quran.
