The poet Abdalaziz Saud Albabtain has published a book titled "Contemplations for Peace." The book encompasses his ideas and insights, aiming for a better future for a world that currently faces significant challenges. Released in both Arabic and English, the book serves as a culmination of his thoughts and aspirations for peace. His dedication to establishing dialogues and conferences worldwide, gathering intellectuals from various backgrounds and perspectives, is evident in his passionate pursuit of peace. As a testament to his commitment, Albabtain carried his message and presented it to the United Nations General Assembly, along with this book.
The book received a foreword from Michael Frendo, the Honorary President of the Parliament of Malta and former Minister of Foreign Affairs. Frendo described the book as a "valuable and heartfelt cry to humanity as a whole to embrace peace as a value, goal, and way of life."
Fernando also commented on the book, saying: "It reflects Albabtain's ongoing commitment to bringing together the diverse components of humanity, despite their different beliefs and cultures, and in the face of economic disparities, in an honest and frank dialogue, aiming to achieve peace between and within nations." Regarding the seven principles outlined by Albabtain in the book "Contemplations for Peace," Michael Fernando states: "The author's proposed seven principles of peace signify an utmost necessity and consensus, a continuous building effort, and a historical endeavor to develop peace as a culture and a way of life for the entire world."
The first section of the book is titled "Seven Principles for Peace." These principles are: Respect and Honesty, Peace is a Necessity, Peace is a Consensus, Peace is a Historical Endeavor, Peace is a Continuous Process, Peace is a Culture, and Peace means Education.
Albabtain doesn't merely present these principles as theoretical concepts; he provides a mechanism for their application in the second section of the book, titled "Seven Means to Achieve Peace." In his view, these means are: The Duty to Do Good is a Path to Peace, The Duty of Reconciliation is a Step Forward Towards Peace, Mediating Between Countries as a Way to Establish Peace, The Preparation of a Practical Planas a Way to Achieve Peace, Joint Interactive Work as a Path for Peace, Making Peace a Unifying Ideal is a Way to Achieve Lasting Peace, and The Doctrine of Peace as a Way for Peace.
Seven principles and seven approaches laid out by Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain before the world, all of which lead to coexistence, love, renouncing wars, and destructive conflicts. Humanity only needs to follow these paths to achieve the dream of peace.
