Is Islam a religion of peace ?
If yes, explain how.
Islam is a religion which strongly believes in peace. To start with the Islamic religion is believed to be comprised of two religions that is Dar al-Islam and Dar al-Harb. Where Dar al-Islam is the real house of Islam governed by the Muslims under the guidance of the Sharia Laws whereas Dar al-Harb is believed to be the house of War. Most faithful Muslims believe in bringing the world into a uniformity kind of leadership where all the world governance is marked by a similar system of governance. Some Muslims seek to achieve this through persuading their potential faithful and others through employing tyranny. Those who are not living by the Sharia Laws are believed to be Jahiliyya meaning ignorant. They are believed to be the perpetual causes of war to the Muslims nations which is always against Islamic faith. Other Jahiliyya Muslims have taken advantage of the Jihad War and misinterpreted it by divining it by war but in the real sense Jihad according to the Qur'an means striving in the way of Allah. They have misinterpreted it and now they are carrying several attacks on innocent people across the globe in the name of Jihad War which is strongly denounced among the Muslim faiths. Therefore, Islamic religion is a religion of peace and strongly believes in a peaceful world.
