This book, Islam is the Religion of Peace, shows with clarity that Islam is the religion of perfect peace, and that the spread of Islam means the spread of peace throughout the world. Muslims must always be true to their promises and covenants, and must treat others with justice and compassion, particularly those who are weak and vulnerable.
The book also makes clear that when the early Muslims overpowered major empires and took over vast areas, their motives were not to subjugate people or to enrich themselves by taking away their resources. Indeed, Islam stands firmly against injustice, tyranny and corruption, and builds a state where all people, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, can en- joy full justice and true compassion. Islam helps people to discard the worship of other beings so that they worship God alone. It takes them out of the darkness of disbelief, delivering them into the light of faith.
