Jawaid Bhai, during the time of King Solomon, the Queen of Sheba also had the option to go to war but she opted out of it. She said that when kings go to war with other countries they do not only cause devastation but also make “the noblest of its people, the meanest”. (Al Qur’an 27:33-34).
Today, no woman wants war. She wants to live in peace and raise her children in a very safe and positive environment.
Although, most men are still not like that, but they are also beginning to learn that in modern warfare there are no real winners.
Eventually, Truth has to prevail over Falsehood. And, definitely this cannot be settled with war.
Hence, world events demonstrate that in a global village it has no option but to solve its problem by dialogue, diplomacy and consensus.
