Peace in Islam

The very word Islam (from the Arabic silm) implies peace, and all the teachings of Islam are based directly or indirectly on this principle. There are traditions of the Prophet that say that ‘Peace is Islam’, and that, ‘God is peace’ (Al-Bukhari). Similarly, there is another hadith that says that a Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands, people are safe. One of the attributes of God described in the Quran is ‘As-Salaam’, which means ‘peace and security’. That is to say that God’s Being itself is a manifestation or embodiment of peace. In the Quran, divine guidance is likened to the ‘path of peace’ (THE QURAN 5: 16)

In Islam, Paradise, the eternal ideal and the ultimate objective of every man, is called the ‘Home of Peace’ (THE QURAN 10: 25) It is also said that the people of Paradise will wish peace for one another, which is another indication of the importance of peace in the ideal society.
