Peace beyond sides

Peace requires courage, peace requires validity of both. It is the manifestation of understanding. Aggression is easy, oppression is easy, it comes without having to look beyond what you directly see in front of you. Your issues, your problems. Peace on the other hand is a byproduct of empathy; feeling and realizing what the other side feels. Without it we are merely taking sides, infuriating one and exonerating the other, dehumanizing one, power lifting the other, vilifying one and justifying the other. Peace on the other hand requires no sides it only requires understanding!

The Prophet (PBUH) said: “He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully (by God)”

For “the reward of goodness is nothing but goodness. [Qur’an 55:61]
