Building peace and sustaining it has been a priority for many since violence prevents people and nations from achieving their goals. The roadmap to peace starts from the school. It is necessary to instil peace in students' hearts by including it in the school curricula. That is to prevent extremism and achieve human security. This research looks at the importance of integrating peace from the Islamic perspective into the school curricula at all levels. It also investigates how the concept reflects on the individual and societal levels. The research examines peace in the Qur'an and Sunnah. It reviews some educational models and theories that support peace and suggests ways to include it in school curricula. The study proposes an Islamic model of peace education by analysing the concepts of peace in the Qur'an, Sunnah and Hadith and how can they be applied in school curricula. The model is designed by considering four dimensions: classroom, school environment, the wider community, and environment.
