Peace and the Holy Quran

The words of the Holy Quran bring our attention to the peace and balance governing the entirety of Existence from particles to galaxies to human being and human societies.

Do they not look at the sky above them? How we have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it?
أَفَلَمْ يَنظُرُوا إِلَى السَّمَاء فَوْقَهُمْ كَيْفَ بَنَيْنَاهَا وَزَيَّنَّاهَا وَمَا لَهَا مِن فُرُوجٍ (50:6)
And the earth—We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)
وَالْأَرْضَ مَدَدْنَاهَا وَأَلْقَيْنَا فِيهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَأَنبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ (50:7)
And the skies has He raised high, and has devised [for all things] a measure
وَالسَّمَاء رَفَعَهَا وَوَضَعَ الْمِيزَانَ (55:7)
so that you might never transgress the measure
أَلَّا تَطْغَوْا فِي الْمِيزَانِ (55:8)
It is He who from on high has bestowed inner peace upon the hearts of the believers, so that – seeing that God’s are all the forces of the heavens and the earth, and that God is all-knowing, truly wise – they might grow yet more firm in their faith.
هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدَادُوا إِيمَانًا مَّعَ إِيمَانِهِمْ وَلِلَّهِ جُنُودُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا (48:4)
The Believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and reconciliation between your two brothers; and fear Allah, that ye may receive Mercy.
إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ (49:10)

Hazrat Salaheddin Ali Nader Angha, the current Sufi Master of the M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi School of Islamic® Sufism, in the book entitled Theory “I” states:

“Whenever we compare the structure of the solar system with the structure and organization of the atomic structure, we observe that within each element of the earth and other planets of the solar system, they all follow the law of submission. They all are submitted to the innate knowledge and are governed by the laws of existence. So too is the human being who is able to cognize the “I”, the source of knowledge. This is the state of total freedom and love which has been amplified in the writings of the Sufi master. This is the total state of freedom and love which has been amplified in the writings of the Sufi masters”[1]
