Duties of Proximity: Towards a Theology of Neighbourliness
Beautiful mardin is indeed an abode of peace! May God keep Mardin peaceful! Yet like all worldly abodes, Mardin is a temporary and fleeting abode. The eternal and constant abode of peace is the hereafter Garden of Paradise, with its ultimate peace of joyfully seeing the divine manifestation of the Lord Himself, The Peace! It is to that hereafter peace that God invites us. The true hereafter abode of peace, ‘dar al-salam’, is also the true abode of Islam, ‘Dar al-Islam’.
