A brief summary of the conference:
It is well known that Allah has chosen Islam as his religion. He said: "Religion is with Allah, Islam" (Al-Imran: 19). "Whoever seeks a religion other than Islam will not accept it" (Al-Imran, 85). All the more particularly what Islam looks like on peace, requires a fairly impartial scan for the importance and pertinence of peace in the writings of the Qur'an and the Sunnah. One of the most important elements of Islam and its mission is the achievement of peace and security in the world. The way of life of peace, as imagined by Islam, is not constrained to a formal comprehension of idea of demilitarization, aggregate security or peace as functionalism. Islamic perspective of peace is far reaching; it is more than a no-war circumstance. Thus, International Islamic University Chittagong, Bangladesh, is based on the role and mission of Islam and its application. It has a leading role in achieving security and peace, which has been linked to all aspects of human life.

Peace activities and peace process are for the most part connected with serene settlement of question; worry for aggregate security; demilitarization; preventive strategy and unctionalism. Question and differences whether political, monetary or ideological have been by and large settled either through utilization of might and control or through arrangements, i.e. intellectual competence, intervention, up close and personal communication and exchange. For this reason such issue like World Peace and Security need to be discussed in round table discussions. Based on the University's keenness on scientific conferences and seminars, exchanging scientific and research ideas and experiences, and its keenness to carry out its scientific and research role and to achieve its mission in the service of society and the nation, and to fight extremist elements that undermine the security, safety of the country, the Faculty of Sharia and Islamic Studies felt the necessity of arranging an international scientific
