Islamic Morals Promote comprehensive Peace

The entire code of Islamic ethics seeks to promote and maintain peace, security and happiness in the society at large. This code enjoins brotherhood and all beneficial things that promote peace, and it forbids all types of actions that instigate evil and implant hatred in the hearts and minds of people. Accordingly, if the members of the society apply the Islamic code of ethics, they would enjoy the peace, security, tranquility and happiness for which they naturally strive and yearn. All values of the Islamic morality produce a better person with the noble traits of character admired universally: truthfulness, fairness, courage, generosity, patience, perseverance, kindness, and courteousness.

The essential objective of Islamic morality is to eradicate all harmful and immoral actions, attitudes and behaviors which displease Allah, the Almighty Creator and Sustainer of mankind, and are therefore declared unlawful. If a Muslim practices any of the forbidden acts, he would expose himself to either punishment in this world by the specified punishments of the Islamic law, or the Wrath of Allah in the Hereafter.

As the modern Arab poet, Ash-Shauki, wrote in verse, explaining that nations of people are naught but their morals and characters: If the morals of the nation cease the nation ceases!
