Diversity in Unity
Thus, accepting the world and human beings in their difference from self, we recognise the Divine transcendence in them. We recognize in the other the face of God and at the same time what we are themselves, albeit in a different mode.
After all, "For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced out way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community. But that He may try you by that which He has given you. So vie one with another in good works. Unto Allah ye will all return, and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ." (Qur'ān, 5:48)
