ABSTRACT
Islamic teachings are based on a strong foundation of tolerance. Islam has no connection whatsoever with either terrorism or extremism. Islam is a peaceful, practical religion whose Universal teachings are based on duty consciousness, love, peace, mercy, security of mankind and moderation at all levels. This paper discusses that the essence of the teachings of the Qur'an is the establishment of peace and elimination of mischief and corruption. There are innumerable verses in the Qur'an which condemn the disruption of peace in society or to help in this regard is totally against Allah's Commandments. The Prophet (PBUH) preached and practiced excellent behavior towards all irrespective of caste, creed or colour. He established unity and justice in society and tried to get to the root-causes of moral and social degradation in society and then their complete eradication through practical endeavours. He commanded the Muslims to fulfill the obligations towards non-Muslims and not break the promise and treaties made to them. He (PBUH) forbade prejudiced attitude towards non-Muslims. The prophet (PBUH) not only emphasized good behavior towards human-beings but also towards animals and birds. He (PBUH) also taught Muslims to respect nature.
