How Inner Peace Leads to Outer Peace

 Being the most precious creature of God in the universe, human beings are created as social creatures.  The Qur’anic teaching instructs their relationship to themselves, as well as to other creatures.  They have been given a variety of capacities and as a result, their relationships to themselves should be through the development of these capacities.  These capacities are similar to seeds planted in the human nature.  Just as a seed grows and through good treatment becomes a tree, in the same way these capacities flourish and give fruits if they are nourished and treated well.  If these positive capacities do not have a chance to grow, they will become like a rotten seed.  There is no doubt that for the development of positive human capacities, first inner and second outer peace is a necessary environment.
