Only peace loving people will gain entry into the Paradise of God



Mohammad Asif Reyaz

On September 6th, 2012, as my academic pursuit moved into the silence of late night, I moved towards my bed very late. I found my three-year old son Mohammad Yehya sleeping on my bed. He was in such a deep sleep that he appeared to be lifeless. I gazed at him thinking that he is almost dead but by the grace of the Almighty he will be raised again anytime soon. At that time I experienced the way man dies only to be raised. In fact every day man experiences life and death but never pays any attention.

My son was blissfully sleeping in an aura of peace. He was in the ecstasy of beautiful slumber. It was not possible for my child to be in such a deep slumber in a war-like situation. Observing this, I started thinking about other children, men and women of the world, who are deprived of peace, hence not able to sleep in peace.

For instance there is a war-like situation in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Myanmar and Palestine. Millions of people around the world are forced to take shelter in refugee camps in alien territories.

God created darkness of night so that man could rest and sleep in absolute peace. But few are destroying this peace and depriving people of sound and peaceful sleep.
 
Leaders talk of war because they know their children are in safer zone. They are sure about their safety hence igniting the fire of war. They know well that it is a lowly sepoy who dies on the border while the leaders enjoy their luxury.

A poet of Urdu has rightly described this situation in his couplet:

Qatl Sarhad pe Sipahi honge
Surkhoru Zille Ilaahi honge

Sepoys will be killed on the border
And our leaders will credit to this

قتل سر حد پہ سپاہی ہوں گے
سرخرو ظل الہی ہوں گے

People must know that those who ignite the fire of war are friends of Satan and Satan abode is hell-the place of fire. They will be thrown into this weeping and gnashing.

Only peace loving people will enter into the paradise, because the paradise is place of peace and love.

Ungrateful, wrong doers and warmongers will not be permitted to enter the Paradise of God, because they are the people who remained ignorant of the value of peace in this world. As stated in Isaiah:  

The way of peace they do not know
there is no justice in their paths.
They have turned them into crooked roads;
no one who walks along them will know peace.
Isaiah 59:8 New International Version {NIV}
Quran states:
Whenever they ignite the flame of war, Allah extinguishes it, and they strive to create chaos in the land; and Allah does not love the mischievous. Qu’ran:5-64
God has made paradise for righteous and virtuous people not for the mischievous one.
