Reducing Polarisation in the World

There are wars happening in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen. A million Muslims have died in Afghanistan. Another million Muslims are reported to have died in Iraq. More people are dying and being displaced in Syria, and Yemen. After the demise of the caliphate in 1924, it appears that polarisation between Muslims and non-Muslims is getting worse. The clash of civilisations is fast becoming a grim reality. Even the polarisation between Muslims is not decreasing. The Qur’an states, “Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.” (16:125)
