Islam stands for peace. Ahmadiyya Muslim community presents the real picture of Islam.

The true victory of Islam, as is evident from the word 'Islam' (submission) itself, lies in our complete surrendering our selves to God and freeing ourselves of our egos and our passions. No idol, whether it is the idol of our desires, our our intentions, or the idol of creature worship, should stand in our way, and we should submit ourselves entirely to the will of God. After reaching this state of Fana (self-annihilation), we will attain baqa (the life of eternity) which will give our eyes a new light, our minds a new passion; and we will become a wholly new being and the same Eternal God will become for us a new God. This is the true victory, and one aspect of it is Divine ammunion.(the green announcement p. 28)

  The Promised Messiah (as) says:

The members of my Jama'at, where ever the may be, should listen with attention.there purpose of their joining this movement and establishing the mutual relationship of spiritual preceptor and disciple with me is that they should achieve a high degree of good conduct ,good behavior and righteousness. No wrongdoing, mischief, or misconduct should even approach them. they should perform the five daily Prayers regularly, should not ultter a falsehood and should not heart any one with their speech.they should be guilty of no vice and should not let even a thought of any mischief, or wrong, or disorderliness, or turmoil pass through their minds. They should shun every type of sin , offense, undesirable action,passion, and unmannerly behavior. they should become pure-hearted and meek servants of God Almighty, and no poisonous germ should flourish in their beings....  Sympathy with mankind should be their principle and, they should fear God Almighty. They should safeguard their tongues and their hands and their thoughts against every kind of impurity, disoderliness and dishonesty. They should join their five daily prayer services without fail. They should refrain from every kind of wrong, transgression, dishonesty, bribery, trespass and partiality.The should not participate in any evil company. If it should be proved that one who frequents their company does not obey God's commandments... or is not mindful of the rights of people, or is cruel or mischievous, or is ill behaved, or is seeking to deceive the servants of God Almighty by speaking ill or abusively of them, or is guilty of imposture towards the persons with whom they have entered in to a covenant of bai'at, it should be their duty to repel him and to keep away from such a dangerous one. They should not design harm against the follower of any religion or the member of  any tribe or any group. Be true well-wishers of everyone, and take care that no mischievous, vicious, disorderly, or ill-behaved person, should be ever of your company, or should dwell among you; for such a person could at any time be the cause of your stumbling...
 These are matters and conditions that I have been urging from the beginning, and it is the duty of every member of my jama'at to act upon them. You should indulge in no impurity, mockery or derision. Walk upon the earth the earth with good hearts, pure tempers, and pure though. Not every evil is worth fighting, and behave with steadfastness and meekness. Do not attach anyone improperly, and keep your passions under complete control. If you take part in a discussion, or in a exchange of views on a religious subject, express yourself gently and be courteous. If anyone misbehaves towards you,withdraw from such company with greetings of peace. If you are persecuted or reviled, be mindful that you should not meet stupidity with stupidity, for otherwise you will be counted in the same category as your opponents. God Almighty desires that you should become a  community that should set an example goodness and truthfulness for the whole world. Hasten to exclude everyone from your company sets an example of evil, mischief, provocation and ill-behavior. He who cannot dwell among us in meekness, goodness and piety, Using gentle words and comporting himself in ways of good conduct, should depart from us quickly, for God dose not desire that such dwell among us. He will die miserably, for he did not adopt the way of goodness. Therefore be alert and be truly good-hearted, gentle and righteous. You will be recognised by your regular attendance at prayer services and your high moral qualities. He who has the seed of evil embedded in him will not be able to conform to this admonition. (Tabligh-e-Risalat, vol. 7, p. 42-43. Ishtihar, May 29, 1898)
 He further said:
 A man should not be conceited, nor indecent, nor ill-mannered towards the fellow beings, He should act with love and goodness and should not bear ill-will towards anyone for personal reasons. He should behave firmly or gently in accordance with the occasions or conditions. (Malfuzat, new ed., vol. 5, p. 609)
