As a way to appease the international political climate, this paper intends to highlight some of the main Muslim tenets that are conducive to peace. The four tenets that will be exposed will be the Islamic law of requital, which stipulates that both the individual and the state are the architects of their own fate. The Theory of equilibrium or al addl is the second tenet presented. The latter demonstrates how inner qualities are important for the equilibrium of man and the world. The third tenet is concerned with din, which is the broad goal of life and the program of action to be reached. Din has two functions, one, the development of the human person by getting rid of his inner conflicts and two, the social environment in which he lives. The fourth tenet is presented with the Sufi assumptions that all psychological activities and all religious activity is essentially of the same nature and that the main problem of man is selfishness. Hence, from that contention derives the point that a discipline is to be adhered to if one intends to reach moral improvement.

Keywords: Islam, Peaceful Religion, Ethics, Core of Islam, Psychological Activities and Spiritual Ones Are Alike, The Main Problem of Man is Selfishness
