Islam is against terrorism and violence


What does Islam say about terrorism?

Its very unfortunate today that Terrorism of any sort is always related to Islam and Jihad. A few extereme elements in the clan often misinterprete the teaching of the holy Qurn and present the world all wrong deeds in name of Islam and Jihad.

And due to such elements, Islam stands to often blamed.

But did any one try to understand the teachings of Islam, Its Prophet and the Quran. Who gave you the right to kill in name of Islam? Who are you to kill the innocent people in name of Islam? Are you A MUSLIM? The Answer is NO. You are not a Muslim. You are not a true follower of Islam and its te4chings. If you were a true follower of islam you would not have dared to do such heinious crime.

The Glorious Qur’an says:
And do not kill those souls whom Allaah has prohibited unless [justified by] a due [legal] right {Surah Al-An'am : 6:151}
The Messenger of Allaah said, in an authentic hadeeth reported by imam al-Bukhari,
Whoever kills a non-Muslim who has an agreement with the Muslims then he will not smell the fragrance of Paradise
Our religion of Islaam prohibits transgression and oppression. It prohibits oppression even if this transgression is against someone that we hate. It is still impermissible. We have to be just when dealing with everyone.

Allaah, the Most High, said,
 And do not let the hatred of a people cause you not to be just. Be just, because it is closer to piety 
Some of the verses of Qran below:
"God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes, that you should show them kindness and deal justly with them. God loves just dealers." [Noble Quran 60:8]
"Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not begin aggression, for God loves not aggressors." [Noble Quran 2:190]
"If they seek peace, then seek you peace and trust in God for He is the Hearer, the Knower." [Noble Quran 8:61]
" and let not the hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is next to piety; and fear Allah, for Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [Noble Quran 5:8]
"But (remember that an attempt at) requiting evil may, too, become an evil: hence whoever pardons (his foe) and makes peace, his reward rests with Allah- for, verily He does not love transgressors." [Noble Quran 42:40]
"The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! He between whom and thee there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a bosom friend. [Noble Quran 41:34]
Some of the Prophet Muhammad's Teachings (Sunnah)

  • He prohibited Muslim soldiers from killing women, children and the elderly, or cut a palm tree, and he advised them, "do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child."
  • "Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years."
  • "The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed." Killing is the second major sin in Islam.]
  • "There is a reward for kindness shown to every living animal or human."
  • From the above teachings how can you decide Islam is a religions of violence. Those who fight and create loss to humanity have never understood the teachings of Islam and Quran.
Islam is a reliegion of peace and love.

The message of the Quran is clear as we have seen, that the sanctity of any human life is to be respected and any violation in that regard is paramount to the worst crime.  Mercy is at the heart of the Islamic call, “We sent thee (O Muhammad) not save as a mercy for the peoples” (21:107); a totally different message to what the terrorists are sadly imparting to humanity.
