Islam and Peace

Islam is a religion of peace which aims at intellectual discovery and a higher level of God realization. Islam is synonymous with the culture of love, peace and universal brotherhood. Over the ages, Muslims have adopted violence in the name of jihad. In the Quran, jihad is used to mean conveying God’s message to mankind. The Quran reiterates that we should take up arms only to defend ourselves against attack. Muslims must shun violence and adhere to the principles of peace and brotherhood.
