Abstract

Islam as a complete way of life has provided us with social regulations to guide our interactions with one another. Conflict is inherent in human nature, however, if properly tackled can be reduced to the barest minimum. Islamic social regulation lays the foundation for mutual respect granting social rights to individuals and groups irrespective of creed, race or cultural affiliation. It is only through the actual application of such social regulations that peace and tranquillity can be achieved by man on the earth. The paper presents some of these social etiquettes, beginning with the Islamic social conduct within the family, between neighbours and in the society at large. Paths to the attainment of harmonious co-existence among diverse ethnic and religious groups are also highlighted. The paper recommends, among others, that parents and religious leaders, in recognition of their vital position in the socialization process, should imbibe Islamic social regulations so as to serve as good role models in the society.
