Articulating peacemaking and peacebuilding within contemporary Islamic thought and narrowing the gap between Islamic peace psychology and peace studies is best exemplified by the efforts of Maulana Wahiduddin Khan (Seedat 2006). Born in 1925 in a small village of Northern India (Badharia in the Azamgarh district) to an Indian Sunni Muslim family, Khan is popular for his faith-based approach to jihad that underscores social justice, forgiveness, and patience. Combining Gandhian views of nonviolence and the values of Prophet Mohammad, Khan appeared as a prominent activist during the post-colonial period who condemned fundamentalism and communalism. In his endeavors, he was guided by his urge to portray Islam as a suitable ideology for the modern times.
