The current paper addresses concept, nature, samples and types of aggression in order to define them, and to study different prevention and control methods from different perspectives especially from an Islamic approach. Qualitative methods and content analysis tools were used in this research. The statistical community consisted of 48 hadith and historical books, which were selected objectively and used as samples. The results of the research showed that the infallibles emphasized seven methods (tolerance, negotiation, affinity among members, exercising of power, relation control, mediation, arbitration and consultation) to solve and to manage aggression. A high percentage of usage of aggression control and prevention methods was found in 70 hadith and historical documents. They imply that in conflicts the infallibles used tolerance and meditation with greater frequency (%17.14 and %14.28) whereas arbitration was used with lesser frequency (%10) to prevent and to control aggression. Furthermore the infallibles were only seen in conflicts if they themselves were involved or if they were acting as a third party.
