Abstract: Moral values by Al-Sulh prioritize the principle of well pleased (redha) in seeking the mercy of Allah SWT. There are ten values basing the Al-Sulh to conduct conflict management namely Salam, Syahadah, Seruan, Sumpah, Sufi, Syukur, Simak, Sabar, Syafaat dan Silaturahim. These values are designed based on the methods of Al-Sulh practiced at the Department of Syarias Judiciary in Malaysia. The implementation of Al-Sulh values has established the essence of peace towards solving disputes in the Islamic household. The development of values in the Al-Sulh education is part of the findings from the study on issues of divorce and broken homes which was solved through the practice of Al-Sulh. In the Al-Sulh practice, the disputed parties are exposed to the ten values and majority of the divorce cases managed to be solved successfully and peacefully in terms of issues such as claims made after a divorce namely fasakh, mutaah, idah, hadanah, mahar and matrimonial property. The findings also showed that the disputed parties who have not agreed to follow the ten values of Al-Sulh often end in vengeance and distrust which will lead to bitter endings or at the worst, their cases would have to be settled in court. In the context of this study, the ten values in Al-Sulh education act as the guideline to understand the concept of peace in conflict management.
