Terrorism Is Not the Monopoly of Islam

Terrorism is derived from the word “terror” which means fear or fright. The word terrorism became famous after 9/11 when world saw a plotted plan which turned the tables and the enemy revealed itself without any hesitation. After the incident or false drama of 9/11 the world turned against Muslims and terrorism became Islamic terrorism. Islamophobes tried their level best to make such a plan against muslims that their power could be crushed worldwide and it happened exactly the same.

Unfortunately we see some figures actually involved in the terror activities that have nothing to do with islam but they do all that in the name of islam. The biggest example in the TTP of Pakistan and the African islamist groups who unknowingly do what they are funded for. In this article Islamic stance on terrorism is going to be discussed in detail, inshallah.

ALLAH swt says in Quran 5:32
“For that reason, We decreed for the children of Israel, “If someone kills a human being _ unless as a penalty for murder, or unless it is to prevent the spread of corruption in the world _ it is as if he has killed the entire humanity. And if someone saves a life, it is as if he has saved the entire humanity. Certainly, (all) Our messengers had brought to them the clear (irrefutable) proofs. Despite that, most people in the world continue to commit (outrageous) excesses.”

The verse mentioned above is a clear cut stance of islam on the matter of terrorism. There is no way a muslim can kill anybody other than the death penalty, if he does he has made a grave mistake and has committed a big sin. If this is what islam says how can one justify the killing of anybody in the name of islam? Similarly, those who criticize islam day and night and find all those verse from Quran which they can quote out of context, why do not they see this verse of holy Quran and see what actually Quran says about unjustified murder?

 In another place ALLAH swt talks about the incident of habil and qabil when the one killed the other for an unjustified reason and purely out of evil intentions.

Al-Quran 5:030
“His (evil) soul acceded to the murder of his brother. And he killed his brother and became one of those who incurred a real loss.”

Today we see muslims dying in muslim states by the hands of muslims for the reason unknown. Aren’t those incurring a real loss by killing innocent kids and people who have nothing to do with anything?

When islam does not promote anything which is associated with islam, why the non muslim world is so bent to prove that islam is religion of terrorists? It is only because those who are sitting in white house do not want islam to grow back to the position it was before. Because it is only the truth that can defeat the lies. If there will be no truth visible to the world there will be nothing to defeat the lies. This is the formula adopted by the west and all the other anti Islamic powers to suppress islam.

ALLAH swt says in another place in Quran 2:178
“O ye who believe! the law of equality is prescribed to you in cases of murder: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, the woman for the woman. But if any remission is made by the brother of the slain, then grant any reasonable demand, and compensate him with handsome gratitude, this is a concession and a Mercy from your Lord. After this whoever exceeds the limits shall be in grave penalty.”

This is the ruling of islam even on a justified murder. There are two ways for the murdered’s relatives either to demand the kill or to ask for a compensation, when islam promotes forgivness and life, islam cannot promote what the anti Islamic forces call “Islamic terrorism”. For those who still think islam is the religion for muslims only, they should learn islam themselves instead of falling for the lies of the islamophobes.

There ae various ahadith that deal with this matter.

Bukhari Volume 9, Book 83, Number 9:

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:

The Prophet said, "Al-Kaba'ir (the biggest sins) are: To join others (as partners) in worship with Allah, to be undutiful to one's parents," or said, "to take a false oath." (The sub-narrator, Shu'ba is not sure) Mu'adh said: Shu'ba said, "Al-kaba'ir (the biggest sins) are: (1) Joining others as partners in worship with Allah, (2) to take a false oath (3) and to be undutiful to one's parents," or said, "to murder (someone unlawfully).

Those who talk about the “killing” of early muslims should also care to find the sources of knowledge of islam not the sources of evil of the devil worshipers.

The anti Islamic world is eager to present a false image about islam but they should also know that;

Al- Quran 3:054

“And (the unbelievers) plotted and plan, and God too planned, and the best of planners is God.”

Today, despite of all the hatred spread against islam, the number of followers of islam is increasing day by day because people when try to find terrorism from Quran and sunnah, they find nothing but peace and humanity.
