By Kabbani, Shaykh Muhammad Hisham
Contrary to ill-founded doctrines of extremism, terrorism, and what is often portrayed in the media, Islam is based on peace: with blood relations, loved ones, colleagues, neighbors, communities and nations. However, one cannot establish peace unless one has peace in their heart. Today the world is in a perpetual state of chaos and unprecedented upheaval. Families are uprooted by social and political crises, poverty has spread worldwide, and corruption is rampant. How can peace coexist in such a negative environment? Based on traditional Islamic source texts-the Holy Qu'ran, the Holy Traditions (hadith) and opinions of venerated scholars throughout history-"The Peacemakers As Taught in Classical Islam" examines what real peace is, how to acquire it, who the genuine peacemakers are and how to benefit from them.
