How to Bring About a Good and Right World #5

For those who are not yet Muslim this plan for the creation of a fully and truly Islamic world should still be widely and warmly welcomed. In rightly practiced Islam never through any form of compulsion would any person have their culture or their religion taken from them. It is reasonable to expect that eventually virtually everyone will want to become Muslim; but, that day should only come when the beliefs and practices of Islam have shown themselves to be so compellingly attractive that no person could not welcome the opportunity to be Muslim. Until that day Muslims and non-Muslims should live together in peace, harmony, and respect while working united to right every wrong presently existing in the world. No other course of action can be considered right, or reasonably followed. Since Allah has in the past sent His prophets to all the people of the world it is not surprising that all the world’s people have long shared the same basic ideals of what is good and true and right. This will make the task of creating a fully and truly Islamic world much easier.

As a means to help clarify the true unity of all the world’s diverse people with presently differing ideologies and religions it is proposed that we accept every human being as Muslim (without a capital ‘M’), and those who have realized their Islamic nature and professed the shahada as Muslim(with a capital ‘M’). In this way, from the beginning, no person is left outside the universal brotherhood of Islam. In this context Islam (without a capital ‘I’) refers to the natural right relationship between the created existence and God, while Islam (with a capital ‘I’) refers to the religion based on that natural right relationship between the created existence and God, who we know as Allah.
