Summary
  • A God-centric worldview is imperative for a life of inner peace according to Said Nursi (d. 1960), a twentieth century Muslim scholar. The prime focus of a God-centric worldview is how life and events are interpreted and what meaning is given to those events. Throughout his writings, Nursi puts great emphasis on the metaphysical dimension of the universe, so much so that it is the basis of his worldview. This worldview could be pinned down to the Qur'ānic verse: “Who has created everything in the best way.” According to Nursi, this verse expresses how humankind should view the world as an abode of goodness and beauty outright or through the results it produces. This perspective of life and events transforms the worldview of an individual, leading to a state of inner peace since the individual is now able to give meaning to all life and events in a way that satisfies the heart and mind. A tawḥīd-centric worldview is imperative for a life of inner peace according to Nursi. The prime focus of a tawḥīd-centric worldview is how life and events are interpreted and the meaning given to those events. This worldview could be pinned down to the Qur'ānic verse: "Who has created everything in the best way‟ (32:7). According to Nursi, this verse expresses how the world should be viewed as an abode of goodness and beauty. Nursi elaborates on this worldview, by emphasising the need to look at life as other indicative (mānā-yīharfī). Nursi explains that, according to the Qur'ānic view, everything in the universe is mānā-yīharfī; it is a mirror to make known the Divine names and attributes of God so that the tawḥīd concept is better realised in one's life. This perspective of life and events transforms one's worldview. Such a positive transformation, leads to a state of inner peace as the individual is now able to give meaning to life and events in a way that satisfies the heart and mind.
