The meaning of "World Peace" is a situation in which all individuals, groups and nations while preserving their human dignity, have a life of justice, security, tolerance and cooperation as a "right"; and participate actively in determining their destiny and maintaining this situation in the world.
Immanuel Kant, as the father of liberalism, is considered one of the founders of modernity and the most influential philosophers of modern times. The systematic theory of Kantian peace leans on his ethics and general philosophy.
Whereas, Peace theories in Islamic political thought, in the two political philosophy and political jurisprudence aspects, have no cohesion.
However, in general it can be said that the similarity between peace theory in Islam and the Kantian peace theory are superficial, and the differences are fundamental.
