Islam Promote Peace

Image, Picture, Islam, Peace

Allah means by literal definition, 'The only absolute that which is worshiped'.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) as a mercy to mankind, his mission was for the whole world. He was sent to perfect morals and character.
Islam by definition means surrender and submission only to the One True Creator (Allah).
A Muslim by definition means one who surrenders and submits to the laws of Allah (God). Allah says about Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) Peace Be Upon Him, "When his Lord said to him, "Surrender" (be a Muslim), submitted he, 'I surrendered to Him (as a Muslim), Who is the Lord of all the worlds'. Surah Al-Baqara:Ayat 131
Islam described by the Divine Book Quran, it is the most comprehensive book available to mankind for guidance and nothing has been omitted from it.

Good Muslim, Good Human Being.
Many non-Muslims consider Muslims as angry or annoyed mobs, terrorists and suicidal bombers. Such views regarding Muslims are completely incorrect and untrue. Most Muslims are simple, peace-loving people with their own ambitions, dreams and problems and  they must be treated with the same respect that we give to any other fellow human being.

Islam is the monotheistic and revealed religion. Islam is a natural religion, Islam is not associated with any person, people, short period, or limited place.
Hence, it is not a new religion that Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) brought but it is re-expressed and a final form of same true religion that Allah (God) revealed through all His prophets.

So Islam is the same religion which was given to Adam (Peace Be Upon Him), the first man and the first prophet of Allah, and it was the religion of all the prophets sent by Allah to mankind.
The name of Allah's religion lslam was not decided upon by later generations of man. It was chosen by Allah Himself and clearly mentioned in His final revelation to man.

Islam gives a complete way of life. Islam governs a Muslim’s life in all its aspects. This is the reason why it is not only a religion but also a way of life. It widen the aim of life, showing us how to conduct all human activities in a sound and wholesome manner. It does not allow a hierarchy of priests or intermediaries between Allah and human beings, no far-fetched abstractions and no complicated rites and rituals.

Islam tells us to build a society, which consist on civility, courtesy, compassion and consideration for others.  And link these attributes the matter of faith.
Islam aims to bring about prosperity to all mankind. Peace in every aspect no violence in any form. Islam teaches peace, justice, harmony, tolerance and love.
Islam has laid down some universal fundamental rights for humanity, which are to be observed and respected under all circumstances. 
By reading of the Quran or the Prophetic traditions, we find instructions regarding all matters of life like political, social, economic, material, ethical, national and international. These teachings are detailed and gives complete instructions to follow each and every act.

Islam is not about we're better than you. 
Islam is about let me show you something that is better for you.


The Blessings of Islam:
According to Islam life and religion are same thing, there is no separation. Islam encourages Muslims to adopt certain qualities and characteristics so that they are able to cope with the problems of life and conduct their social relations in the best way. 
There are some universal truths, such as honesty, generosity, altruism, truthfulness, helpfulness, and compassion. Every person naturally has an innate inclination toward these virtues.
Humanity:
One of Islam’s most important characteristics is its humanity; this is highly evident in Islamic legislation and other facets of the religion.
Islam promotes the concept of a human brotherhood and the equality of all humans. It maintains that all humans are the children of one man (Adam) and one woman (Eve) and we all share the same lineage, as stated in the Quran:
'O people! Fear your Lord Who created you from a single soul and made its mate from within it, and from that pair spread many men and women and fear Allah in Whose name you ask for (your rights) and pay attention to the ties of relationship. Undoubtedly. Allah is watching you all time." 
Surah An-Nisaa : Ayat 1
Regardless of race, sex, class status or color we are all one, according to Islam. No superiority on account of class, color, origin or wealth.
Humanity represents one family springing from one and the same father and mother. The unity of humanity is not only in its origin but also in its ultimate aims. Man has a common origin, human status and aim. Other people's interests and rights to life, honor and property are respected as long as the rights of Muslims are intact. Transgression is forbidden.

Justice:
Justice as a basic objective of Islam and a moral virtue, and the standard of justice envisaged by the Quran.
In Islam, justice is also a moral virtue and an attribute of human personality, as it is in the Western tradition.  
Allah spoke to His Messenger in this manner:
“O My slaves, I have forbidden injustice for Myself and forbade it also for you.  So avoid being unjust to one another.” (Saheeh Muslim)
The Quranic standards of justice transcend considerations of race, religion, color, and creed, as Muslims are commanded to be just to their friends and foes alike, and to be just at all levels.
According to another Quranic passage:
'O believers! Stand-up firmly by the Commandments of Allah, bearing witness with justice and let not the enmity of any people incite you that you should not do justice. Do justice that is nearer to piety and fear Allah, undoubtedly, Allah is aware of your doings. Surah Al-Maidah :Ayat 8
Truthfulness:
Truthfulness is a command of Allah , part of faith, and a quality of must for all prophets and is mentioned in 100 places in the Noble Qur'an. 
The spirit of Islam is in speaking the truth. 
Speaking Truth is another important part of Islam about which Quran and Hadith has guided us several times.
Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him said "Truth takes you towards the Virtue and Virtue takes you towards Heaven."
Lying is against human nature and physiology. Like any disease, it has its own signs and symptoms.
Lying not only can create problems in your life but is considered a big sin in Islam. Islam rejects lying in all forms.
Prophet Mohamed (Peace Be Upon Him) said: "Surely those who are most frequent in believing people are most frequent in telling the truth and those who mostly doubt people are the most frequent liars."
A man may keep on telling lies till he is written before God, as a liar”. (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
Honesty:
"When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (the Day of Judgement)."  These are the words of Prophet Muhammad.  
Allah commands that a Muslim be honest in every dealing, honest dealing in trading, buying selling, and even when it comes to giving advise one should give fair or honest advise.
Honesty is an essential attribute of the Muslim character, includes being truthful towards God by worshipping Him sincerely; being truthful to oneself, by adhering to God’s laws; and being truthful with others by speaking the truth and being honest in all dealings, such as buying, selling and marriage.  
Rules Of War:
War is only justified if the state security is endangered. During war destruction of crops, animals and homes, killing non-fighting women, children, and aged people are forbidden.

 Islam is the absolute answer to those who seek a perfect religion and a complete way of life. It guides us to a well-balanced life, one that makes us happy and contented in this world and in the life Hereafter.
