22) Peace (سلام)
Anyone who ponders Christ's manner of life according to the Gospel and in the Qur'an, finds that he is a man of peace, not a man of war and riot. He did not take part in any attack, nor did he prepare an ambush against his enemies. He did not call to fight, but said, "All those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword." (Matthew 26:52) He would never accept booty, or own slaves – rather he forgave his enemies, took away their sins and reconciled them with God. He loved the poor and comforted the miserable.
The Son of Mary testifies, according to Sura Maryam 19:33, "Peace is upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day when I will be sent forth alive."
Peace remained on him from his birth until his death. He is the Prince of Peace, because he established peace between God and men. He is the real Muslim and fills all those who trust him with his eternal peace. He declared in his Beatitudes, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." (Matthew 5:9)
