Yusuf Usman Peace Abstract

Peace is the major teaching of every religion. Peace and security are basic principles upon which religion is formed. No religion embraces violence. Looking at the concept of peace and security from the perspective of various religions, they had been emphasized as core values for followers. Although there are many religions advocating for peace and security, the study shall focus on one major religion, Islam. The word Islam is derived from the Arabic word silm, meaning peace. It also means total submission to the will of Allah (God), and a total way of life. In this paper, Islam has been chosen because it has been wrongly associated with violence, extremism, and terrorism.
