Reconciliation in the Islamic Tradition

(p.151) 9 Reconciliation in the Islamic Tradition
Just and Unjust Peace

Daniel Philpott

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a justification for the ethic of political reconciliation from the Islamic tradition. It seeks to show how the Islamic tradition provides a grounding for the concepts of reconciliation, justice, peace, and mercy that the previous chapters set forth. For these tasks, it turns both to an analysis of language as found in Islamic scriptures and an analysis of God's response to evil as found in the Islamic tradition. The chapter explores musalaha rituals as rich examples of reconciliation.

Keywords:   human rights, righteousness, musalaha
