One of the important subjects in Islamic Studies and civilisation is Salaam (Peace) that has been repeated several times in Qur?an and Sunnah in different chapters. Though, this subject despite its importance in Islam and human life as whole has not yet been well studied. This article attempts to define the concept of Islamic peace, its importance and connection that existed between peace and justice in Islam. In this respect, the following issues such as rule of peace and tolerance will be also discussed; this helps to eliminate the misconceptions against Islamic peace making and will elaborate a basic frame work for peace makers and negotiators in the world.
