Islam is a religion of peace in the fullest sense of the word. The Holy Quran calls its way ‘the paths of peace’
Verse 5:16 of Holy Quran,
By which ALLAH guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darkness’s into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path.
Verse 2:205 of Holy Quran,
And when he goes away, he strives throughout the land to cause corruption therein and destroy crops and animals. And ALLAH does not like corruption.
In fact the word Islam itself means peace. So the spirit of Islam is the spirit of peace. The verses of the Holy Quran breathe the spirit of peace. “In the name of God, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate”. This verse is repeated in the Holy Quran no less than 113 times. It shows the great significance Islam attaches to such values as Mercy and Compassion. Furthermore the Holy Quran states that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was sent to the world as a mercy to mankind.
Verse 21:107 of Holy Quran,
And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.
It shows that most verses of the Holy Quran (and also the Hadith) are based on peace and kindness. The ideal society, according to the Holy Quran is the house of peace
Verse 10:25 of Holy Quran,
And ALLAH invites to the Home of Peace and guides whom He wills to a straight path
Islam attaches great significance to peace. Thus Islam is a religion of peace in the absolute sense of the word. Every teaching of Islam is based on the principles of avoidance and peace. Any kind of deviation from the model is a deviation from Islam and is due to misconceptions. We must, therefore, understand the principles and ideology of peace given in Islam and base our actions upon these principles so that peace will prevail in the world.
Verse 8:60 of Holy Quran,
And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of ALLAH and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom ALLAH knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of ALLAH will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.
Verse 60:7-9 of Holy Quran,
Perhaps ALLAH will put, between you and those to whom you have been enemies among them, affection. And ALLAH is competent, and ALLAH is Forgiving and Merciful. ALLAH does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, ALLAH loves those who act justly. ALLAH only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion – [forbids] that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers.
