Bigotry: The Dark Danger

AS-SALAM - The All-Peace

He is Allah—there is no deity but Him. He is the King, the Most Pure, the Perfect Peace , the Trustworthy, the Safeguarder, the Almighty, the Compeller, the Supremely Great. Glory be to Allah above all they associate with Him. ( Surat al-Hashr, 59:23)

Allah gave the good news of an eternal Paradise to His believing servants. Yet one point is often missed here: These servants are rewarded with a beautiful life not only in the Hereafter but in this world as well, as the following verse reveals:

What is with you runs out, but what is with Allah goes on forever. Those who were steadfast will be recompensed according to the best of what they did. Anyone who acts rightly, male or female, being a believer, We will give them a good life and will recompense them according to the best of what they did. ( Surat an-Nahl, 16:96-97)

No doubt, the blissful life in both worlds manifests Allah's attribute of as-Salam upon His faithful servants. A believer who is devoted to Allah and does good deeds to attain His good pleasure will return to His Lord “...well pleasing and well pleased” ( Surat al-Fajr, 89:28). Allah describes what such servants will find in the Hereafter, as follows:

And the garden will be brought close to the pious not far away: “This is what you were promised. It is for every careful penitent: those who fear the All-Merciful in the Unseen and come with a contrite heart. Enter it in peace. This is the Day of Timeless Eternity.” They will have there everything they want, and with Us there is still more. (Surah Qaf, 50:31-35)

Allah's attribute of as-Salam is also His greeting to those who enter Paradise . In Surah Ya Sin 36:58 Allah states: “‘Peace!' A word from a Merciful Lord.” This greeting is the greatest reward that believers will ever receive, for:

Such people will be repaid for their steadfastness with the Highest Paradise , where they will meet with welcome and with “Peace.” ( Surat al-Furqan, 25:75)
