Qur'an 4:114

One of the words for peace in the Qur'an is sulh. This word may also be translated as reconciliation. It derives from the root sad lam ha, from which are also derived words for righteousness, goodness, making amends, compensation, restitution, reform and setting things right. The word islah, from the same root, is also used for peace, reconciliation and reform.

Ayah 114 of Surah al-Nisa may be translated as:
"There is no good in many of their confidential counsels, except for those who command charity or what is honorable or peace (islah) among people."
