This article deals with a very important and basic feature of Islām on whose foundation the whole façade of Islām is erected, i. e. , Peace. If we study the Quranic injunctions, the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muḥammad (r) and his kind actions i. e. his Sunnah, it becomes quite obvious that our topic of research is the top most concern of al-Sharī’ah, because peace is the foremost attribute of Islām. Islām means to prevail peace not only in the lives of the people in this world, but in the hereafter, too. In this research paper, the author has done his level best to prove that peace and solidarity play an important role in all the spheres and walks of life. Islām emphasizes it the most. Islamic teachings regarding peace include an individual’s life affairs, as well as the national and the international relations. We notice that all actions taken by the holy Prophet (r) meant to spread peace among the Muslims and the non-Muslims. The Holy Prophet (r) was explicitly declared as ‘Raḥmah li’l-‘Ālamīn’ (A mercy for all the worlds) by Almighty Allāh. We need to highlight and follow his sublime example to let the Muslims and the rest of the world know what Islām actually stands for; in a single word, it is just PEACE!
