Islam is a religion of peace

Islam is a peaceful religion. It stands for peace and desires peace. The basis of Islam is peace. The word ‘Islam’ is derived from the root silm, which means ‘peace’. In this sense, a true Muslim, one who truly follows Islam, is someone who is at perfect peace, with himself and with others, a person who is a means for the welfare of others. He is someone from whom others can expect goodness, not problems or evil. The Prophet Muhammad is said to have declared, as mentioned in the Hadith collections of Tirmidhi and Nasai: ‘A true believer (mu‘min) is he from whom people’s lives and wealth are safe.’ A true Muslim is one who lives in society, rather than cut off from it, and is impelled with the overwhelming desire to bring peace to humankind. He seeks to bring others close to him, not to drive them away from him. This is why the Prophet declared, in a hadith report contained in the Sahih al-Bukhari: ‘In him there is no merit who is not familiar with others and with whom others are not familiar’.

According to a saying of the Prophet, Islam is welfare (ad-din an-nasiha). The Prophet is also quoted as having said: ‘All creatures are [members of] the family of God’ (al-khalqo ayalullah). Accordingly, a Muslim must behave with all others, fellow creatures of God, in the same way as he behaves with members of his own family. Furthermore, as a hadith report in the Sahih al-Bukhari explains, the Prophet stressed that a Muslim is one who desires for others what he desires for himself.

The fact of the matter is that the biggest blessing of God is peace. Without peace a person cannot properly fulfil his religious, social and economic roles and responsibilities. Nor can he properly benefit from the blessings of God. This is why peace is described as a major divine blessing in numerous verses of the Quran. Thus, for instance, the Quran says: ‘Let them worship the Lord of this House, who provides them with food against hunger, and with security against fear [of danger]’ (106: 3-4).

Quran verses about peace

Listed below are a few verses that support the claim that Islam is a true religion of peace and tranquility.

  • "O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do." (Surah 4, Verse 135).
  • "God advocates justice, charity, and regarding the relatives. And He forbids evil, vice, and transgression. He enlightens you, that you may take heed." (Surah 16, Verse 90).
  • And if ye do punish them, punish them no worse than they punished you: but if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient." (Surah 16, Verse 126).

Hadith about Peace

The Hadith on spreading peace is as follows:

“O people, spread peace, feed the hungry, and pray at night when people are sleeping and you will enter Paradise in peace.” (Sunan Ibn Majah)

Abu Umamah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings be upon him, said:

“Verily, the best of the people to Allah are those who begin the greeting of peace.” (Sunan Abu Dawud 5197)

Narrated ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her): The Prophet (PBUH) said, “The most hated person in the sight of Allah is the most quarrelsome person.” (Sahih Bukhari)

On the authority of Abu Huraira (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), reported: The Messenger of Allah, (SAW), said, “You will not enter Paradise until you believe and you will not believe until you love each other. Shall I show you something that, if you did, you would love each other? Spread peace among yourselves.” (Sahih Bukhari)
