INTRODUCTION:

 

THE UNIVERSAL PEACE ORDER

We give thanks and praises to God, the Almighty, the Creator and the Sustainer, We pray for perpetual peace and blessings to be upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his holy Progeny.

The philosophy of Salawatia Muslim Mission of Ghana is based solely on the teachings of the Holy Quran and the Traditions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Salawatia Mission is Tijaniyya by orientation. The Tijaniyya Order teachings are also solely based upon the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW), which amongst other things, are self-restraint, patience, tolerance and peaceful co-existence with other people no matter their race, tribe, color, and political affiliations. It teaches the participation in community development. It is based on these Nobel teachings that the Mission embarks upon the promotion of peace in Ghana and in the whole world at large.

The Tijaniyya Order emphatically teaches that the ONLY way to achieve Faith and Outstanding Belief in Allah (SWT) is; “To love for your brother what you love for yourself.” Thus, the Universal Peace Order. So based on these virtues and profound wisdom taking into consideration the numerous conflicts both locally and internationally, Salawatia Mission has no option but to contribute its quota to the promotion of World Peace.

UNFOLDING OF THE SCRIPTURES

The Islamic concept of the Unfolding of the Scriptures, which means “Ayamul-Lah” or “Days of Allah”, was one of the mysteries of Knowledge conferred on man by God. In His infinite knowledge, He taught man by the pen and taught him what he did not know (Q 96:1-5). Among the mystic meaning of Knowledge is the Islamic concept of Unfolding of the Scriptures which is as old as time itself. The Quran attests to this in Chapter 45 verse 15: that says “Tell those who believe, to forgive those who do not believe in the Days of Allah; it is His responsibility to reward each People according to his deeds.”

Also in Quran 14:15 Allah says “We sent Musah (AS) with our signs commanding him to “bring out his people from the depth of ignorance into the light of knowledge, and to also teach them to remember the “Days of Allah”. Verily, in the concept of the “Days of Allah,” (Unfolding the Scriptures), there are signs for those who are steadfast and grateful”.

In a narration of Muslim, and on the authority of Ubaiyi, the Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAW) explained “Ayaamul-Lah” or “Days of Allah” to mean that, “Allah’s Days are some days of fortunes in the year and that some others are of misfortunes”, (Muslim, Book of Fadaail, Hadith No. 4386). In most cases, solutions are prescribed to curb and prevent the misfortunes not to occur, and the fortune days enhanced; hence the unfolding of the scriptures to serve as a guidance for this year, 2013.
