Is this another way of asking if someone is generally well, or is it specific to a sense of peace/safety?

I put "Are you well?" instead of "Are you peaceful?", but my answer wasn't accepted. It literally means "are you peaceful", but can be translated also as "are you well? or how are you?" I believe. At least this is what was taught to me in Kenya.
