True Understanding of Islam Leads to Harmonious Society

By His Eminence Shaikh Ahmed al Khalili, Grand Mufti of the Sultanate — Adherence to good moral values and spreading them among people entails a sound relationship with Allah the Almighty which in turn depends on good insight and awareness about religious matters. However, being insightful about Islam requires — contrary to the common thinking — something above the superficial knowledge about the provisions of Islamic Sharia (law). Fiqh (understanding of the Islamic religion) doesn’t mean the rigid, surface understanding of the rules of Islam; rather it is the wide insight of the essential matters of Islam and of the wisdom behind the rules and provisions of Islam. It is the knowledge of the connection between what Allah the Almighty prohibited and what He ordered the Muslims to do for their own interest. It is only when people perform the religious duties as worship rather than inherited stereotyped habits that Muslims develop the true spirit of piety and they become mindful of Allah the Almighty and the Day of Judgment. At this point Muslims become brothers in God; their feeling towards one another becomes stronger and their bond tighter as Allah the Exalted said in the Holy Quran: “The believers are but brothers”. Prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him, said: “The Believer to the Believer is like a solid building, one part supporting the other”.
