Healing our broken world
We must re-write our future ambitions, based on unity, peace, love, compassion – Laiq Ahmed Atif
In his New Year’s Day message, the worldwide head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community drew attention towards the hardships faced by humanity during the past year and prayed that humanity is blessed with health, peace and prosperity in this New Year. He concluded his message by saying:
“True celebration will be when all of mankind upholds the values of humanity; when the vengeance between people turns into love.”
Undoubtedly, both good and bad has always remained with humanity. God says in the Holy Quran: “And We have pointed out to him the two highways of good and evil” (90:11).
“I will give my all in your service thinking not of power but of possibilities. Not of personal interest but of the public good. And, together, we shall write an American story of hope, not fear; of unity, not division; of light, not darkness; an American story of decency and dignity; of love and of healing; of greatness and of goodness.”
These were the promising, encouraging and wisely selected words of President Joe Biden in his inauguration speech after taking his oath as the 46th president of the United States of America.
I eagerly listened to his speech; it was a powerful message and I hope it will reach far and wide.
His speech was a message of hope and healing to the fractured world we live in.
I pray that this dream comes true, his words become a reality and his sentiments are translated into action.
As president of the world’s most powerful country, Joe Biden not only becomes a healer to the wounds of Americans but of the entire world – Laiq Ahmed Atif
