Auburn06 76 Posted February 16, 2015 Share Posted February 16, 2015 (edited) The thread on the killing of 21 Christians keeps getting derailed so here is where we can talk about how the extremists are not true Muslims. In fact, in the middle east,the highest number of victims due to terrorism are Muslims. btw; Allah is Arabic for "the God"...Arabic speaking Jews & Christians say "Allah" The basics: http://www.islamtomo...ds/islam_is.pdf Resource for below: http://www.islamcan....ml#.VOJF7PnF9tw What Does Islam Say About War? Like Christianity, Islam permits fighting in self-defence, in defence of religion, or on the part of those who have been expelled forcibly from their homes. It lays down strict rules of combat which include prohibitions against harming civilians and against destroying crops, trees and livestock. As Muslims see it, injustice would be triumphant in the world if good men were not prepared to risk their lives in a righteous cause. The Qur'an says: Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits. God does not love transgressors. (2:190) If they seek peace, then seek you peace. And trust in God for He is the One that heareth and knoweth all things. (8:61) War, therefore, is the last resort, and is subject to the rigorous conditions laid down by the sacred law. The term Jihad literally means 'struggle', and Muslims believe that there are two kinds of Jihad. The other 'Jihad' is the inner struggle which everyone wages against egotistic desires, for the sake of attaining inner peace. How Does Islam Guarantee Human Rights? Freedom of conscience is laid down by the Qur'an itself: 'There is no compulsion in religion'. (2:256) The life and property of all citizens in an Islamic state are considered sacred whether a person is Muslim or not. Racism is incomprehensible to Muslims, for the Qur'an speaks of human equality in the following terms: O mankind! We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in God's sight is the greatest of you in piety. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (49:13) "Kill them where you find them" explained.
