Accordingly, it is highlighted that goodness should be the foundation of every partnership. The nation with the adversarial relations is urged by Allah SWT to observe justice. Allah SWT has commanded to stand out firmly for Allah as witnesses for the sake of justice, and let not the enmity of a people cause you to turn away from justice. They are advised to do justice, for that is akin to piety (Al-Quran: Al-Ma’ida ,
But those who are too arrogant to worship me will surely find themselves in hell, in humiliation. (Qur’an 40:60). The above mentioned Qur’an verse clearly shows the important of seeking help and supplicating to Allah. Dua’a in Islam is a spiritual means by which the believer praises, beseeching for help and guidance from Allah Almighty. It is a great form of worship in Islam, it serves as the weapon for the believer, it is the crucial bond between the creator and His slaves and also the best thing that Allah Almighty requests from His servant to engage in day and night, though Allah Almighty is not in need of any creation.
International organizations like United nations also do some efforts by make forum to discuss this kind of issues.

UNITY As I aforementioned earlier, unity, to put it light, is the state of being together and join by a way of interest, norms, share, and so on.

The Qur’an says: “And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided,” (Surah Ala-Imran, 101).

There is even a hadith that says “Adhere to my sunnah and the sunnah of the righty guided caliphs and cling to it with your morals.” That is why it is justified why the Deobandis accept any innovations from the Caliphs. However, even with the Sunnah some actions do not add to the sunnah but they are more of a personal understanding of some practices in Sunnah which of course is refused by the Deobandis. A counterargument to the school of thought of the Deobandis can be the Hadith “whatever the Muslims deem to be good is good according to Allah.” The Deobandis are following the Literalist interpretation of Qura’an and Sunnah which is not consistent with the Universalist Theory of Islam as it restricts human minds and does not give them enough space for thinking and being different in life which is something God created us with. God did not create humans to just follow the rules without even thinking about them, the main aim was to have the earth developed. If God
Islam is an influential religion in the way that it combines between understanding the human’s nature, needs, and weakness. But in the same time, Islam always encourage people to follow their nature, needs, and weakness in a good way.

Sufi considers every thought, feeling, perception and self-worth that he or she has as a manifestation of God. Sufi sees them to be on a spiritual journey toward Allah SWT. I want to relate about the ‘knowledge’ with this film, Lucy. In Lucy, Professor Norman once points out that the main point of life is to pass on knowledge. This point of view is similar with Islam’s point of view that attaches great importance to knowledge and education.
