Making Peace among People
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allah's Cause), or
Ma`ruf (Islamic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allah has ordained), or conciliation
between mankind.''
...and making peace is better.''
"So fear Allah and adjust all matters of difference among you.''
"The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islamic religion). So make reconciliation between your

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"On every joint of
man, there is charity, on everyday when the sun rises: doing justice between two men is charity, and assisting a man
to ride an animal or to load his luggage on it is charity; and a good word is charity, every step which one takes
towards (the mosque for) Salat is charity, and removing harmful things from the way is charity".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Almighty Allah has made human body flexible, that is to say, its parts have joints which enable him
to make all kinds of movements. If human beings did not have these joints, it would not have been possible for its
different parts to make movements which they do. Had it been so, one would not have been able to use various parts
of his body as he likes. Thus, these joints are a valuable gift from Allah for which one should always be grateful to
Him. In all, a person has three hundred and sixty joints in his body, as has already been stated in a Hadith narrated
According to some Ahadith, two Rak`ah of Duha prayer (
optional forenoon prayer
) has been regarded sufficient for
this purpose, while in others, it has been stated that if one cannot do anything else for expressing gratefulness to
Allah, he should refrain from harming others as it is a form of Sadaqah.

Umm Kulthum bint `Uqbah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
person who (lies) in order to conciliate between people is not a liar, when he conveys good or says (something)
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
The narration in Muslim added: She said, "I never heard him (she meant the Prophet (PBUH)) giving permission of
lying in anything except in three (things): war, conciliating between people and the conversation of man with his
wife and the conversation of a woman with her husband".
This Hadith tells us a very important principle, that is, in spite of its being unlawful, one is permitted
to tell a lie if one has to do it for reforming one's society or family or in the interest of Muslims in general. If two
Muslim brothers are estranged and someone communicates to them such things which are likely to remove conflict
and rancour between them, promote mutual love and bring them nearer to each other, such action, even if it has a lie,
is not called a lie in Islam.
1. In order to keep the enemy unaware of the true position, it is permissible to make false propaganda as it is an
indispensable device for winning war.
