This research aims to determine the main factors underlying the glory of the Mughal Islamic empire by using a qualitative approach with a descriptive method. Methods of data collection using literature study of books and ebooks. The results of the research prove that: Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar was the first Muslim ruler who able to maintain his position in a long time, not merely to fulfill his personal ambitions but to take advantage of his position as king to unite all Mughal society under his rule. To realize this vision, Akbar must legitimize his government and build a strong military superiority among his pluralistic society. The sulh-i-kul or tolerance for all policy that he implemented was able to become a driving tool for several subsequent policies such as the abolition of the jizyah, the establishment of ibadat-khana, and the application of din-i-Ilahi to unite the Mughal community in building a superpower empire based on universal tolerance. Without this basic ideology of sulh-i-kul, the Mughal society at that time could not have become a famous empire.
