Does Islam teach us to kill ?

juillet 1, 2006 oceane04

[Quran 7:28] They commit a gross sin, then say, « We found our parents doing this, and GOD has commanded us to do it. » Say, « GOD never advocates sin. Are you saying about GOD what you do not know? »

[Quran 49:13]« O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant. « 

[Quran 5:87] … and do not aggress; GOD dislikes the aggressors.

[Quran: 7:199] ……You shall resort to pardon, advocate tolerance, and disregard the ignorant.

The relations of Muslims (Submitters) with others are based primarily on peace, mutual respect and trust. The theme in the Quran is peace as long as there is no oppression or injustice that cannot be resolved by all the peaceful means available.

The religion of  Islam forbids the killing of innocent people, irrespective of the cause – religious, political or social beliefs.

Quran, the Muslims’ holy book and scripture declares;

[Quran 6:151] « …… You shall not kill – GOD has made life sacred – except in the course of justice. These are His commandments to you, that you may understand. »

[Quran17:33] « You shall not kill any person – for GOD has made life sacred – except in the course of justice. ….. »

The laws of the previous scriptures that applied to previous generations and current generation are repeated and emphasied for the Muslims (Submitters) in the Quran. Muslims (Submitters) are commanded to follow such laws. Quran reiterates ;.

[Quran 5:32] « ……, we decreed for the Children of Israel that anyone who murders any person who had not committed murder or horrendous crimes, it shall be as if he murdered all the people. And anyone who spares a life, it shall be as if he spared the lives of all the people. ………….. »

The religion of Islam condemns the killing or even the persecution of people merely because they embrace a different religion. The Quran mandates the absolute freedom of religion in a society. It does not allow Muslims to fight except for self defense and to enforce peace. It does not allow restrictions on  those who disagree on religious matters. It urges the Muslims to treat such people kindly and equitably!

[Quran 2:256] « There shall be no compulsion in religion… ».

[Quran 60:8]« GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable. »

[Quran 8:61]« If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in GOD. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient. »

[Quran 4:90]« …… Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD gives you no excuse to fight them. »

Regrettably, many terrorists groups have used the name Islam to promote their cause and this gave many non-Muslims a chance to asperse Islam and label the Muslims as terrorists. Deliberately ignored on the other hand, are terrorists who happen to be Christians or Jews.

With all the great laws established on earth by God or man, the evil among the human being, will  find a way to abuse, distort or misinterpret them. This does not make these laws evil but rather proves the evil nature of these criminals.

Terrorism as an act of violence has been committed by people from all religious and political backgrounds.
