Abstract

According to Quranic teachings, there is no alternative to peace which is the real goal of Islam. Peace in social life is a state where all the routines of life are going on without any violence. The concept of peace is defined as a healthy, positive, and mutually civilized human relationship. Because of the growing terrorism in the world, it is the need of time to spread the message of peace all over the world, for which the teachings of the Qur’an can play a very important role in this regard. For this, the true teachings of the Qur’an and its correct interpretation must be communicated to all people so that no person/institution can mislead the people. Islamic teachings bear witness to the fact that Islam and Quranic teachings do not encourage terrorism and such incidents. The world has seen a wonderful demonstration of peace under the leadership of the Holy Prophet. This research article highlights that the concept of peace provided by the Qur’an is comprehensive, lasting and uniform, and useful for all humanity, and the same formula can be followed to bring about reform. This paper concludes that peace is possible just with the teachings of the Qur’an.
