Description from the publisher:
Peace and Conflict Resolution in Islam: Islamic Perspectives on War; Peace and Conflict Resolution argues the case for Islam as the prescription for constructing and maintaining a society of peace; tolerance; compassion; justice and equality at every level of humanity. The book draws exhaustively from the Qur'an and hadith; and other field related sources; and investigates and analyses historical events from the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the early caliphate of Islam. The author concludes that in its essence Islam is a religion of balance and peace; and as such it should be viewed not as something distant or foreign but as a modern catalyst for conflict resolution; peacemaking and peacebuilding in the global arena. Some of the topics covered include: - Historical truths and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims - The concepts of war and peace in Islam - Ethics of war and peace - Islam and Just War Theory - The question of nonviolence - Human nature and inter-personal conflict - Prophet Muhammad as a peacemaker - Muslim women as champions of peace - Practical peacemaking and conflict resolution tips - and much more.
