Peace in the Holy Quran

"Peace will be upon you. I will ask forgiveness for you of my Lord. Verily, He is ever gracious to me."

By Abu Amina Elias / 13 Feb 2014

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Allah the Exalted said:

وَعِبَادُالرَّحْمَٰنِالَّذِينَيَمْشُونَعَلَىالْأَرْضِهَوْنًاوَإِذَاخَاطَبَهُمُالْجَاهِلُونَقَالُواسَلَامًا

The servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say words of peace.

SurahAl-Furqan 25:63

AndAllahsaid:

وَإِذَا سَمِعُوا اللَّغْوَ أَعْرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَقَالُوا لَنَا أَعْمَالُنَا وَلَكُمْ أَعْمَالُكُمْ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكُمْ لَا نَبْتَغِي الْجَاهِلِينَ

When they hear ill speech, they turn away from it and say:

For us are our deeds, and for you are your deeds. Peace be upon you, we seek not the way of ignorance.

Surah Al-Qasas 28:55

And Allah said:

فَاصْفَحْعَنْهُمْوَقُلْسَلَامٌفَسَوْفَيَعْلَمُونَ

So turn aside from them and say words of peace, but soon they are going to know.

Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:89

And Allah said:

سَلَامٌقَوْلًامِّنرَّبٍّرَّحِيمٍ

Peace, a word from a Merciful Lord.

SurahYaSeen 36:58

AndAllahsaid:

قَالَ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكَ سَأَسْتَغْفِرُ لَكَ رَبِّي إِنَّهُ كَانَ بِي حَفِيًّا

Abraham said:

Peace will be upon you. I will ask forgiveness for you of my Lord. Verily, He is ever gracious to me.

SurahMaryam 19:47

AndAllahsaid:

هَلْ أَتَاكَ حَدِيثُ ضَيْفِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْمُكْرَمِينَ إِذْ دَخَلُوا عَلَيْهِ فَقَالُوا سَلَامًا ۖ قَالَ سَلَامٌ قَوْمٌ مُّنكَرُونَ

Has there reached you the story of the honored guests of Abraham? When they entered upon him and said:

We greet you with peace, so he answered: I greet you with peace, a people unknown.

Surah Adh-Dhariyat 51:24-25

AndAllahsaid:

وَإِن جَنَحُوا لِلسَّلْمِ فَاجْنَحْ لَهَا وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

If the enemy inclines to peace, then incline to it also and rely upon Allah. Verily, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.

Surah Al-Anfal 8:61

And Allah said:

فَإِنِاعْتَزَلُوكُمْفَلَمْيُقَاتِلُوكُمْوَأَلْقَوْاإِلَيْكُمُالسَّلَمَفَمَاجَعَلَاللَّهُلَكُمْعَلَيْهِمْسَبِيلًا

So if they remove themselves from you and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a cause for fighting against them.

Surah An-Nisa 4:90
