PEACE

Peace is more than just the absence of conflict or war. Peace is a multidimensional concept that can be viewed through the lens of both negative peace and positive peace.

Negative peace is the absence of violence and the absence of the fear of violence. Positive peace is the attitudes, structures and institutions that underpin peaceful societies. It is things like the presence of human rights, equitable distribution of resources, good relations with neighbours and more. To understand more about positive peace and the many factors that make a society peaceful.

If two parties of believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them. And if one party of them does wrong to the other, fight that wrong-doer until it returns to the ordinance of God; then, if it returns, make peace between them justly, and act equitably.  Lo! God loves the equitable.

Qur’an 49.9 (Islam)
