Islam and Peace

Islam created a society more free from prevalent cruelty and social tyranny than any society that has ever been in the world before. The peaceful atmosphere is required for the spiritual and moral progress of the individual. A good society can be developed in the atmosphere of peace. Islam does not permit rampant violence. But there is considerable prejudice against Muslims and they are viewed with suspicion.

Islam is the religion of peace. The word "Islam" in Arabic is “Salama” which means submission of desires to the will of Allah. Personal peace can be achieved by totally submitting of oneself to God. As Holy Quran says: “And we were ordered to submit to the Lord of the worlds”. Even the greetings favored by Muslims means “May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you.” Peace is a natural state which attracts each and every individual. Good person do not like to create turbulence that affects the peace. When the citizens of any state are satisfied and enjoying peaceful atmosphere then it has a positive impact on the outside environment. Peace is disturbed when the balance of rights and responsibilities between individuals and societies is lost. The lack of fulfillment of responsibilities and encroachment of rights can lead to deep wounds. These irreparable rifts can ultimately lead to full-fledged war. The dilemma in today’s world is that every country wants to look at peace according to their benefit. So they never feel ashamed to support other countries that are working against peace.

The Islam teaches the Muslims that peace is achieved through tolerance, forgiveness, responding to evil with good and proactive good deeds that bring happiness to others. The Holy Quran calls the Muslims the people of the ‘middle path. It says, “There is no compulsion in religion.” The Quran calls for coexistence with other religions: “To you your religion and to me mine.” The Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “You are all born of Adam and Adam was made out of clay. An Arab has no superiority over the non-Arab. Neither does a white man enjoy superiority over a black man, nor a black man over a white man except by piety. Remember that your lives and properties are sacred and inviolable among one another.”

Islam also gives a distinct system of human love, which relates to the dealings of Muslims with the whole world. In this regard, the Quran says: “The believers are brothers to each other; therefore make peace between your two brothers and fear Allah, so that you may gain mercy.” A western scholar Mr. James Michener said: "More than most religions, Islam preaches the brotherhood of all races, colors and nations within its fold. Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself probably had the same skin coloring as Jesus, a very suntanned white, but today his followers embrace all colors: black men from Africa, yellow men from China, brown men from Malaya, white men from Turkey.”

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) was described as “mercy for the two worlds.” In his conduct, he was tolerant, ever merciful and forgiving. He signed treaties of peace with the Jews and the Infidels. In the early years of Islam, majority of the Meccans were against the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). They inflicted a lot of pain and misbehaved with the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and his Companions. But the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) taught his companions that they should show patience and forbearance because they are on right path. The Victory of Mecca is a unique example in human history of a non-violent, bloodless, peaceful conquest that had no casualties and no collateral damage. It is a universal example of forgiveness and returning evil with good for the world to follow.

But now it seems that these Islamic qualities of tolerance and kindness have been negated by the so-called champions of Islam. They represent a revengeful Islam. Their language is harsh and threatening. These people have discolored the image of Islam in the world. Personal Representative (Mr. Picco) of the Secretary-General for the UN Year of Dialogue among Civilizations has said: “History does not kill. Religion does not rape women, the purity of blood does not destroy buildings and institutions do not fail. Only individuals do those things.” It is really astonishing as to how, with the passage of time, these circles have come to occupy the center-stage in many Islamic societies. Their ideas are based on extremism and militancy. The image of Islam projected by such hypocrites is far from the Islam practiced by Muslims over the centuries.

It is time for Muslim societies and governments to disown such extremists and project the peaceful face of Islam. As Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) has said: “The Merciful has mercy on the merciful. O people! Have mercy on the people on the earth and the Merciful of the skies will have mercy on you.” Muslims should discover higher standards of social values by developing the universal spirit and co-operation towards others. If the true understanding of the Islam is effectively spread, a broadminded and tolerant Muslim society can be charted out. The lives of Muslims should represent true essence of Islam that can connect with the rest of world in a way that promote peace for all. Amen.

Hellow dear, You have written a very good article about Islam and Peace. You have put many Ahdees in this article without reference. You should give proper reference of Ahdees and Ayah of Quran in Bracket also.
(I don't know about it that, Is it required or not in essay or any other topics? If yes or not please mention it here).

I read your essay, its an excellent topic and needs to be shed more light on to remind the world that Islam is a religion of peace. I made some changes to the first three paragraphs, there were some words repeated. Its important to realize not repeating a word frequently throughout your work and just use a synonym instead. I'm not changing too much just whatever i spot and made my changes Bold so you know.

References are very important like already said, always cite your references when quoting someone or from somewhere, especially from the Quran.
