From whichever angle you view it Islam is the Religion of PEACE AND LOVE……


     Islam means peace and love



  Al-Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil ‘Alamin was-Salatu was-Salamu ‘alá Asra fil Anbiyaa wal Mursaleen.
       “There is no helper but Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD),
        No guide but (Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) messenger of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), no provision but Taqwa

There is a common stereotype that dominates the minds of some Muslims
And Non-Muslims alike where they think that Islam calls for wars
With those who do not hold the Islamic beliefs.
Reading the base principles of Islam with relation to the struggle that prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
And his followers had to go through in order to spread peace, reveals the fallacy of that notion.
         "S.l.m" is the root out of which the words Islam and salaam (peace) are derived.
Salaam is the word that is used for everyday greeting for the followers of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).
Al-Salaam is one of Allah's names as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an.
Salaam or peace is the status of a person who becomes worthy of being a Servant of Allah ‘Abdullah:

Servants of Allah the most Compassionate are those who walk on earth in modesty
And if ignorant people address them, they say," Peace
(HQ: 25:63).

Peace has a very special meaning in the Call that the prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) carried.
Without discerning that meaning,
We are not able to catch up with the changing events in his life
 That seem contradictory sometimes, and therefore, they are misinterpreted.

Peace has not merely a political dimension where people just live together without fighting for mutual interests.
It is not an enforced state to make the weak unable to fight the stronger.
Peace overwhelms human relations when inner peace spreads in the hearts of humans collectively, and freedom is guarded.

Peace is a spiritual state, which reflects the inner freedom.
Once the person has nothing to fear in the world
And nothing to give an absolute value to,
Peace and serenity overwhelm her/his soul,
And his/her own existence will spread energy of love.

Peace on the social level cannot be realized fully and truly without an inner one.
We are spreading wars because we create our enemy to release the conflicts that overwhelm our souls.
We invent reasons that may appear logical and acceptable in order to justify our attacks, Aggression and violence. Differences in beliefs, ideas, traditions,
And thoughts can never be legitimate reasons for wars and aggression.
Life, according to teachings of Islam,
Is a very precious gift and should be cherished with great respect.
Therefore, wars should be avoided, and violence should not be practiced against any person.

.. If anyone kills a person who did not kill, and did not mischief on earth,
It would be as if he killed all human beings.
And if any one saved a life of one person,
It would be as if he saved the life of all human beings. (HQ: 5: 32) (Our translation)

The Islamic Call came to educate human beings to know themselves;
 Their true selves, so they could be in control of their low selves with all its desires and egoistic endeavors.
To tame this animal like ego is the real challenge, which is called the great struggle al-Jihad al-Akbar.
The smaller struggle Al-jihad al- asghar is known through entering into a physical battle,
When there are no other alternatives.
 One does this for an ultimate goal,
Not just defending his own life as an individual, but also facing courageously any power that aims to conquer the Truth.
In the middle of the battle, the motive of the martyr is not to revenge but to defend a higher cause. Unless her/his heart is full of peace,
S/he would not be considered a Muslim, and martyrdom would not be achieved.
The lower self should not take the lead in defending the cause of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD).
That is only possible if the fight is done for the sake of peace.

What makes the worrier in control of the lower self is her/his remembrance of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD).
In the Holy Qur’an, the phrase "Fear Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)"Is repeated enormously with the aim to bring to the consciousness the awareness of the Divine Presence.
Bringing that awareness supports the state of peace within one's soul and overcomes the tempting aggression of the self.

The prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
Struggles for Peace in Madinah

Naturally, the prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) would expect to spread peace and to live in peace.
When he migrated to Madinah, he brought peace to conflicting tribes there.
 It was clear that Peace was the goal to be realized among people from different faiths, And/ or from different races.
Muslims had the responsibility to spread peace and to absorb the enmity of others.
A Muslim can diminish hatred by spreading love; Dark by shedding light and aggressiveness by dispersing peacefulness.

Nor can Goodness and Evil be equal. Repel (Evil) with what is better:
Then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it was thy friend and intimate! (HQ: 41:34).

From that core principle, the prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) set the rules of the necessity to live in peace with citizens from the same community and to conform to its legal system whether Muslims form the majority or the minority of that community.

During this period, the Muslims' power was getting greater, not because they intended to be more powerful,
But because they were attacked, and they unexpectedly were winning almost every battle that they had to enter.
All the battles they fought were for defense. In other words they had no choice but to enter those battles.

The other reason that he (Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
Fought for was when people with whom he made a covenant or a treaty, Broke them. Muslims were asked to be alert and ready to fight with those people.

But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and taunt you for your Faith,
Fight ye the chiefs of Unfaith: for their oaths are nothing to them: that thus they may be restrained (HQ: 9:12).

What happened in Madinah's time made this period appear somehow as different from Mecca’s period?
The Prophet of Allah (Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) became a ruler of a community, which put different kinds of responsibilities on his shoulders.
He had to settle different conflicts among the tribes of Madinah and looked to establish a homogeneous community.
He was supported by the Revelation and succeeded to found a just society
Where people from different ethnic origins,
And different religious affiliations were treated equally and given the right to use their Holy Books as their legal frame of reference for their disputes:

Let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein
(HQ: 5: 14).

But why do they come to thee for decision, when they have (their own) Law before them?
Therein is the (plain) command of Allah
(HQ: 5: 43)

Because The Prophet (Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) became a ruler,
Many historians (Muslim and non-Muslims) confuse between the religious call
And the political status of The Prophet (Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), Thinking that establishing an Islamic society was the major goal of the call, And as such turning Religion into politics. From this perspective, they mistakenly think that
The prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)'s battles were for power and authority.

Prophet (Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
Peace for the Whole World
While it is true that The Prophet (Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
 Played a political role as a head of a community,
The religious Call he carried remained clear and distinct.
By being a ruler he conveyed a message that is part of the Islamic Call.
He meant to give an example of how the mundane and the sacred are not separated.
Being a prophet did not necessitate that he would leave a task he was chosen to carry.
It was absolutely true that he used his place as a ruler to establish a community overwhelmed by Islamic principles,
And he had to defend those principles by strengthening his position.
Still, no force was used to convert people to Islam.
His ambitions (Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) were not political, But religious, because his call targeted the whole world.

Sending messengers to the great empires of the time was an extension
Of the prime principle of the Call that one should love for one's brother what one loves for oneself.
The most appropriate means at that time to convey what had been revealed to
The Prophet (Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam),
Actually the only available means was to send envoys to heads of different tribes in Arabia And to kings and emperors in the surrounding areas.
 In case of great nations such as Rome, Persia and Abyssinia (Ethiopia),
It would have been impossible to reach people in those places without the permission of their rulers.
If the ruler opened to the Call, that would be a great achievement for the message;
 It would reach people. While if the ruler did not accept the Call,
 Then there would be no chance for people to hear or know about it.
As a messenger from Allah, The Prophet (Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had no choice but to try the only available way.

When the rulers of great empires at that time refused The Prophet's invitation,
 They also wanted to protect themselves from the spread of the call, which may cause disturbances in their countries.
The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) knew well that their refusal meant also that
They would try to conquer this newly emerging Call. And they did try.
He was not militarily ready to face the world, but he took the risk,
Fulfilling the responsibility that he was given.

As for the messages that the prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) sent to emperors,
Kings and rulers, there are some common traits that are characteristics for those messages.
In order to read them correctly,
We have to take into consideration the connotation of the very thoroughly selected phrases, As well as to relate them to the Holy Qur’an language on one hand, And to the core of the Islamic teachings on the other hand.
 Because they were misinterpreted, they leave the impression that
The prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was threatening the power of those old Empires.

Generally speaking, we can see that all the messages started with the same phrase
"Peace is to whoever is well guided”.
That is the phrase, which the Holy Qur’an mentioned as was used by Moses (Alayhi salaam)
When he went to ask the Pharaoh of Egypt to stop enslaving the children of Israel and get them their freedom.
Moses (Alayhi salaam) did not mean that if the Pharaoh did not listen to his advice he would fight him.
He was doing double mission. On one hand,
He was calling the Pharaoh to believe in Allah who is Supreme Transcendent And cannot be materialized in any shape or idea.
On the other hand, he was asking him to be just and fair.
When the Pharaoh did not listen to Moses (Alayhi salaam),
The latter took the children of Israel out of Egypt and crossed with them the Red Sea in order to go to the land of their fathers.
This phrase of "Peace is to whoever is well guided" should not be taken as a threat.

The other sentence that is also common in the messages is "I invite you to what Islam calls for.
Accept Islam and you will be saved”.
This sentence sounds again like a threat, which is like saying,
"If you don't listen to the call, then you will end up to be crashed by the Muslim forces, and in order to save yourself from that destiny, you should convert to Islam".
To interpret that sentence as such is to consider Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
As a crazy man who dared to challenge great powers by such naïve words.
That could never be the case for the prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
 Who led and ruled the community with wisdom and high moral.
He assumed that if those emperors were wise enough,
They might have allowed Islam's teachings to spread among their people
And they would remain good and just leaders.
The following sentence explained it. "If you do not,
You will be responsible for leading your whole nation astray".
 The goal of the messages is well defined.
It should be remembered that the word "Islam"
Meant in The Prophet's use all the Revelations
That preceded Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).

The argument that the prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) did not mean to threat
Or to wage war against those empires is supported by the fact that he was not as powerful as they were.
He had extremely less supplies of money, Weapons and number of people.
Yet, he found himself in a place where he had to enter into a battle against those strong troops of great empires.
At the same time, it was the prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)'s task as a prophet to reach human beings who were ready
And waiting for the guidance regardless of how far they were.

“Tell them what Islam is,
If Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) made of you a tool
For guiding one single human being to the Path of Truth,
That is better for you than having the whole world under your thumb”.
Narrated by Al Bukhari and Moslem

"Never be the starters of war.
Even if they started, wait until they kill one of you,
Then tell them: cannot we have any other option than that (killing)?
 If even one of them was guided to the righteous path,
That will be one of the best things in the world”.

Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayha Wasallam)
Struggle to Reinforce Peace.....
             In new lands, the call for joining Islam's teachings was smooth and peaceful.
 The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) provided his followers with the instructions how to deal with people.

"Tell them first about the content of the Message of Islam
And give them the choice to join Muslims…
If they don't, tell them that the second option is that they can,
Instead pay jizya and we live together in peace.”
Narrated by Muslim, Abu Dawud and Al Tirmidhi

Peace within this context meant that they should accept that Muslims,
 Who became responsible for arranging things in those areas after the defeat of their rulers?
Would be their protectors and pay the assigned amount of money
That is devoted to that task, which was called Jizya.
Not paying the Jizya meant that they were violating the Islamic rules, and indicating their enmity.

Along this line, we can also understand the saying Of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)...
"I was commanded to fight people until they say:
 We witness that there is no GOD but Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)
And Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD);
Turn their faces in the direction we do, offer Sacrifices the way we do,
And perform prayers the way we do.
Only then they can save their lives and money from me”
Narrated by Abu Dawud, Al Tirmidhi and Al Nisa’i

The literal meaning of that saying contradicts with many others and with verses in the Holy Qur’an:

No compulsion in religion.
Say, "The Truth is from your Lord": Let him who will, believe, and let him who will, reject (it): (HQ: 18: 29)
If it had been thy Lord's Will, they would all have believed, all who are on earth!
 Wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe! (HQ: 10: 99)

This Hadith should not be taken literally, simply because it would contradict with the basic principles in Islam.
Certainly, the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam):-Did not intend to fight people In order to force them to be Muslims.
We may deal with the Hadith metaphorically.
 It represented The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)'s will of spreading the word of truth.
He might meant to say that spreading the word of truth was not an easy task,
It was a struggle against the dark side in people,
And it was his mission as the messenger of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD),
The light and mercy of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), to send away that darkness,
And people, then, were supported to be qualified for witnessing the oneness of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD).

At that time, international laws did not exist; safe borders were not secured,
And sovereignty of a state was not respected. There was only one language, that is, of power.
The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)’s mission was not to impose But to free people from illusions.
The free person guards freedom for all.
All the way through he was forced to fight for survival.

To clarify the situation briefly, the argument is demonstrated along the following points:

1, to be a ruler WAS NOT The Prophet's goal or choice.
 He (Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was chosen by people of Madinah to carry on that responsibility.
He used his position to spread the Call that
Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) charged him with,
Not through violence or power, but by creating an atmosphere of PEACE AND LOVE.

2. The battles that he (Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had to enter were not a choice either.
There were no other options. The Holy Qur’an addresses Muslims saying,

"Fighting is prescribed upon you, and ye dislike it...” (HQ: 2:216).

The term “prescribed upon you” as read in its context suggests that fighting was a solution for a problem and hence it was a temporal situation.
The verse also points to the fact that fighting was disliked by Muslims because they were trained during the Call to live in peace.
If there was another alternative, The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) was asked to incline to stop fight.

But if they incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in Allah (HQ: 8: 61).

The first verse that was revealed to allow Muslims to confront those
Who fought them explains the reason of that permission.

To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to confront the aggressor),
Because they are wronged; and verily, Allah is Most Powerful for their aid.
(They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,
 (For no cause) except that they say, "Our Lord is Allah (HQ: 22: 39-40).

3. fighting that was prescribed by the Holy Qur’an was not against peace.
 It was not done out of hatred or lust for domination.
A fighter was not to fight to earn any special status, or to take any material gains.
He fought only for the sake of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) and by His name.

4. Fighting as a phase in Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)'s life was a struggle jihad.
To take the step towards that jihad required great faith in Allah and a degree of inner freedom and inner peace.
 Unlike the psychology of soldiers in normal situations of wars,
The Muslim fighter did not defend his life;
Rather he defended the Call, wishing to be killed as a martyr.
The power of faith that he carried made one fighter equal to many.

"Never aspire for confronting your enemies (in a fight).
Pray to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) to be among those
Who seek living peacefully with others?
But if ever you confront them (in a fight) be patient
And know that Heaven is as close to you as the shades of the swords".
Narrated by Al Bukhari, Moslem and Abu Dawud

To fight was a struggle jihad, because victory was not granted,
And the Muslim troops were almost always less in number.
 Fighting was also jihad because it was a result of offence
And aggression from some groups with an intention of oppressing or exploiting others, violating legitimate rights or working for preventing the word of Truth from reaching others.

5. We can safely say that whenever there was an urge to fight in the Holy Qur’an, the reason was also mentioned with an advice to be just, not to exceed the limits, and not to transgress.

Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors (HQ: 2:190).

O ye who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing,
And let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice.
Be just: that is next to Piety: and fear Allah. For Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do (HQ: 5: 8).

And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression,
And there prevails justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere;
But if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do (HQ: 8: 39).

The Holy Qur’an also guides Muslims to refrain from fighting haphazardly and direct their attacks to innocent people:

Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression.
(HQ: 2: 193)

It can be safely said as well that Muslim fighters were guided to be alert
To restore peace at the first sign that transgressors show serious inclination to stop their aggression:

But if they cease, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
(HQ: 2: 192).

Tolerance in Treating People
From Other Beliefs
........The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam),
Who did not impose the Islamic teachings on others, tolerated the differences and accepted them as facts.
This was an anticipated attitude from a prophet, who made peace and love,
This was the main core of his mission.
There are many examples in his life that showed this kind of tolerance.
When Asma (RadiAllahu anha), the daughter of his companion Abu Bakr (RadiAllahu anhu) asked him about what she should have done with her mother who was opposing the Islamic teachings,
He answered her that she should keep in good terms with her mother.
Asma (RadiAllahu anha) was a little bit confused because she could not understand one of the verses
That banned a Muslim then from Madinah to take one of the unbelievers as a friend.
The verse says,
"O ye who believe! Take not My enemies and yours as friends (or protectors),
Offering them (your) love, (take them not as friends),
Holding secret converse of love (and friendship) with them: …
And any of you that does this has strayed from the Straight Path (HQ: 60: 1).

Asma’ R.A. came to grips with the fact that this verse meant to point to a certain incident.
The verse criticized a behavior of a Muslim who confined secret information to a person from Quraish whom he considered a friend.
This person delivered the information to the masters of his tribe.
As such he chose to be enemy to Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)'s message,
So how come that a follower of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) could have taken him as a friend!

A holy verse was revealed to support The Prophet’s Advice to Asma (R.A):
Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith
Nor drive you out of your homes,
From dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just (HQ: 60: 8).

The holy verse sends away any confusion by saying that Muslims are free
To choose their friends from among all people regardless of their belief As long as those people accept living in peace with them. Live alone People of the Book.

The Messenger of Allah [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] said:
"I swear to Allah in Whose hand my life is, that you cannot attain heaven
And eternal happiness unless you have faith,
And you cannot have faith unless you love each other.
Should I not guide you towards some task, as a result of which,
Love and friendship will be created among you?
“They answered: "Yes, O Prophet of Allah" He added:
 "So, salute each other (with peace) openly and clearly."
(Sunan Abu Dawud, vol.4, narrated by Abu Hurairah R.A...).
  The Religion of Islam is the religion of fraternity and brotherhood among people.
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) called people towards friendship and caring because they are the foundation of co-operation and happiness in this life.
One feels happy and at peace when living with one's own family or with loving friends.
That feeling and love and respect goes both ways
 And one cannot forget family and friends because of one's love for them.

It is when there is no love that enmity among people is created which often leads to aggression breaking out.
If there was real love, fighting among people would not erupt nor would one steal another's property nor there such a gap between rich and poor.

Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) will not be pleased with us and we not will live in happiness unless we love each other.

Our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) guides us towards the right path by instructing us to greet each with the salutation of peace (salaam) as the first sign of showing affection for each other.
 He says: "Salute each other (with peace) openly and clearly."
He guides us in this way because such a salutation
And greetings make both love and happiness enter our souls.
Love among Muslims is a sign for their true and sincere belief,
And all Muslims are brothers and they love each other.
So, whoever dislikes his Muslim brothers and hurts them is not a true believer.
This is endorsed by the Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) who says:
No believers will be true in their belief unless they love each other.

These holy traditions (Hadith) guide us to the knowledge that Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) will be displeased with us
And will not let us enter Paradise unless we believe
And act upon the guidance of His Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).

 His Messenger (Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has spelt out:
It is obligatory for Muslims to love each other in order to be believers and thus enter Paradise.
      No one will enter Paradise except the person who truly believes in Allah.
     A Muslim cannot be a true believer unless he loves his other Muslim brothers.
    Initially saluting each other with peace causes love
And fraternity among people and reaches their hearts.
    Those who salute and greet others deserve
    And gain the double reward of happiness in the life of this world and in the Hereafter.

 Islam means peace and love. From whichever angle it is viewed,
It is absolute peace, pure peace and nothing.
However, there has been a lot of distortion of true Islamic teachings.
One wonders about what is the concept of peace in Islam.
What makes Islam a religion of peace?
The very name of Islam is something very unique.
It is the first time in the entire history of religions that a religion has been given a name which literally means “peace”.
The word “Islam” has two connotations; firstly,
It means submission to the will and command of
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and secondly,
It means peace. Furthermore, Islam is a religion which has been established by Allah Almighty.
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has various attributes
And one of His attributes is As-Salaam, that is, the one who bestows peace.
One who believes in Islam is called a Muslim.
The definition of a Muslim is ‘one who is entirely at peace with himself
 And who promotes peace in society.’
 A more beautiful definition of a Muslim has been given by the very founder of Islam,
The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam). He is reported to have said:
“A Muslim is that person from whose hands and from whose tongue all people are safe” (Bukhari).

        Qur’an 39:60 On the Day of Judgment wilt thou see those
Who told lies against Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD).-
Their faces will be turned black; is there not in Hell an abode for the Haughty?

Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said
"Whoever intentionally lied against me should prepare himself to sit on his seat in Hell (in the day of judgment)".

To avoid misrepresenting the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam),
The authentic Hadith must conform to the following criteria and standards:
1. It cannot contradict the Qur’an
2. It must comport with the overall ethics and morals of
Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
 (Who is described in the Qur’an as a "mercy for all mankind" Rahma Li Alamin?)
       Qur’an 21:107 we sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures.
3. It must attain to the highest level of moral standards
"Makarem Al-Akhlaq" and human conscience and dignity.
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said.
"I was given the revelation only to fulfill the highest levels of ethics and Morals"
Any word, statement, or deed attributed to Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) must first conform to the three aforementioned points before it can be considered authentic.

1. A man once asked Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) regarding good morals and what they consist of.
The Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) replied to him
And said "to care even for those who boycott you,
To give to those who deprive you, and to forgive those who did evil things against you."
2. A man came to the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and asked him,
 What is the religion? ....
The prophet replied "to have high moral standards and ethics
And to deal with people with good manners"...
.then the man approached the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
 From his right side and asked him again what is the religion? ....
The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said again
"To have high moral standards and ethics and to deal with people with good manners “....
Then the man asked him again, now from his left side. What is the religion? ....
The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
Repeated "to have had high moral standards and ethics and to deal with people with good manners."
Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:
 "The powerful person is not the one who has great physical strength But the one who control himself when angry."
.........The Qur’an addresses believers, saying:
” 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 are just.” (Qur’an, 60: 8)

Thus, it is not permissible under any circumstance for Muslims to mistreat a non-Muslim
 Who has not committed any aggression against them?
 They are not allowed to harm, threaten or terrorize him,
Steal his wealth, cheat him or deprive him of his rights.
It is obligatory upon Muslims as well to honor whatever lawful treaties
and agreements are made with non-Muslim parties.

Coexistence does not mean that we cease to promote our positive values.
As an aspect of their kindness and concern for humanity,
Muslims are expected to invite non-Muslims o the truth of Islam with words of wisdom, Sound arguments and a pleasant manner.
This is a debt owed by Muslims to the peoples of the world in gratitude to
 Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) for his guidance and countless blessings.
Verses from the Qur’an referring to Islam as the religion of peace, love and brotherhood:
You who believe! Enter peace (Islam) totally.
Do not follow in the footsteps of Shaitan.
He is an outright enemy to you. (Sura al-Baqarah, 208)
Allah calls to the Abode of Peace and He guides whom He wills to a straight path.... (Surah Younus, 25)
            ... If someone kills another person—
Unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth—
It is as if he had murdered all mankind. ... (Sura al-Maida, 32)

The believers are brothers, so make peace between your brothers
And fear Allah so that hopefully you will gain mercy. (Sura al-Hujurat, 10)

Obey Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) and His Messenger (Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
And do not quarrel among yourselves lest you lose heart and your momentum disappears.
And be steadfast. Allah is with the steadfast. (Sura al-Anfal, 46)

As for those who believe and do right actions, the All-Merciful will bestow His love on them. (Surah Miriam, 96)

You are the best nation ever to be produced before mankind.
You enjoin the right, forbid the wrong and believe in Allah... (Surah Al ’Imran, 110)

Make allowances for people, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant. (Sura al-Araf:, - 199).

"It is important in this present day that the children of
Adam (Alayhi salaam) clearly understands the true meaning of Islam.
We must know the value of its purity, of its peacefulness, its unity,
Its sincerity, its honesty, and the value of its conscience and justice and truth..."

"Islam is equality, peacefulness, and unity. Islam is inner patience,
Contentment, trust in Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam),
And praise of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).
One who understands this and puts it into practice will be a true believer...."

"Allah has asked mankind to accept this, to find freedom, and to raise the flag of unity on the tree of love."

Please pray for me and ask Almighty Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) to forgive me.
  May Almighty Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) guide all of us to His Truth?
  May Allah Subhanahu wata`aalaa grant us what is best in this world and the next!
  Action speaks louder then words my friend’s practice Islam the way of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) did.
  May Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) help us to do that which He loves and which pleases Him?
  May Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) make our efforts sincere and keep us all on the straight path………..
