Peace: the Summum Bonum

People throughout history have wanted to know what the greatest good is. Some thought it was establishing political empires or hoarding wealth or having freedom. Experience has showed that these are not the greatest good. According to Islam, peace is the summum bonum or the greatest good. Peace brings normalcy and opens the door to opportunities, by availing of which we can achieve all kinds of success. Peace is needed for both religious and secular purposes. 

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan
