Muslims, like anyone else, are plagued with many issues and conflicts that are in desperate need of resolution. In order for there to be a healthy and viable community these issues must be addressed in an amicable, just and proper way to the full satisfaction of the community. To allow conflicts to be unresolved is tantamount to leaving an open wound and if unchecked will wreck the peace and tranquility of the community as a whole.
Islam is grounded in a solid and unshakeable foundation of faith and belief or Iman. Iman is the belief in Allah the Exalted, His angels and messengers, His revealed word or scriptures, the Hereafter, the Day of Judgment and His Qadar. These pillars of Iman or faith are condensed in “Amantu Billahi, wa Mala’ikatihi, wa Kutubihi, wa Rusulihi, wal Yawmil Akhiri, wal Qadri Khairihi wa Sharrihi Minal Lahi Ta’ala, wal Ba’thi Ba’dal Mawt.
The conflicts that the Ummah faces have to be solved by taking into account the pillars of belief, Islamic Jurisprudence and its Shari’ah or Law. In doing so will satisfy the deep, core principles of our faith or iman and make sure that our account or hisab on the Day of Judgment will be in a better position, with the ultimate level of saa’adah or happiness, with fawz and falah or success and well-being in this life and in the next.
