Real worship leads mankind to peace

Real worship leads mankind to peace

According to the Quran, worship of God controls one’s character. In Chapter Al-Ankaboot, the Quran says: ‘Surely prayer restrains one from indecency and evil.’ (29:45)This Quranic verse gives us a very important aspect of worship. It presents the true picture of the worship of God. 
Worship is not a spiritless ritual. Worship is a living act. A worshipper recites verses of the Quran during his prayer. These verses tell him about the dos and don’ts of his daily life. They tell him what the secret of success is and how one can obtain salvation in the world Hereafter. 
It means that worship makes a person very conscious about his daily behaviour and his social conduct – from his family life to other walks of life. After performing prayer, when the worshipper returns to the society, he is a man with a difference. 
For example, in his worship, the worshipper repeatedly says AllahuAkbar, which means, ‘Only God is great’, or in other words,‘Greatness belongs only to God Almighty’. This saying inculcates the spirit of modesty in the worshipper.  At the end of this worship, he addresses all of mankind by saying, As-salamalaykumwa-rahmatullah, which means ‘Peace and blessings of God be upon you’.
A believer who worships every day and imbibes in himself this spirit through his worship, is bound to become a person who is very cautious in his behaviour. He would lead a life of modesty. He would live with the spirit of peace for all mankind. 
This Quranic verse gives us a criterion to judge the veracity of worship of every individual. If one’s worship reflects in one’s behaviour, then it is worship in the true sense of the word. 
Those whose worship does not fulfil this criterion are merely performing a spiritless ritual and not engaging in real worship.

Jinnah launched his demonic jihad, euphemistically called Direct Action, by his faithful believers coming out of the mosque after the Friday noon prayer. Jihad and the tradition of mayhem by communal riots have always been preached by praying Mullahs. When someone tells me he is a regular prayer, I run to take out my big metallic tape and measure the distance between me and him. With more than 2 billion Muslims and Christians praying to the same Supreme God, either as God or Allah, that there is so much murderous violence in the midst of so much praying would testify to the fallacy of the power of praying in the manufacture of peace. Speaking of peace, no Indian Musalman has ever, even in dream, considered the virtue of learning Peace from the founder of Jainism. Muhammad is not an apostle of peace. He never was. Whenever an Indian Muslim speaks of Peace, instinctively think of Mahavira and of Jainism and I take the Muslim claim to peace as a homeopathic truth. During the practice of the Holocaust God chose to remain silent.
