    The Qur’an And Violence

    THE QUR’AN AND VIOLENCE

    Dr Robert Morey says on pg.39 of his book Islamic Invasion:

    This should not be a surprise to anyone because Islam not only condones such violence (talking about assassination) but actually commands in certain instances, in the Qur’an Muslims are told in Sura 9:5 ‘Kill the disbelievers wherever you find them’ what are Muslims supposed to do to the people who resist Islam? Sura 5:33 says “their punishment is …<question as to why he did the dot dot dot> execution, or crucifixion or the cutting off of the hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land.” In the west such things as cutting off someone’s hands or feet because he would not accept your religion is unthinkable

    [Dr Robert Morey, Islamic Invasion, pg. 39]


    Dr Morey has quoted verse 5:33 from the Qur’an but he has left 3 dots to indicate he has partially quoted the text, he intentionally left out:

    “Those who wage war against Allah and Allah and His Messenger and strive to make mischief in the earth”

    By leaving this part out Morey has attempted to paint the picture that Islam allows the indiscriminate killing of anybody that chooses not to accept the Islamic faith but actually this verse refers to those who wage war on Allah and His Messenger by waging war and causing mischief in the earth.

    to be more elaborate about the type of people this verse from the Qur’an applies to we have to look at the context of Sura 5 verse 33 before and after where Allah relates the happenings of Kane and Abel in which Kane kills his brother unjustly out of envy and in doing so, earned the sin as if he had killed the whole of humanity. Allah tells us the very reason why He revealed the verse:

    Who killed a human being unless it be for manslaughter or mischief in the earth then it is as if he killed the whole of humanity”

    By revealing this verse Allah is informing us about the sanctity of human life and the blood of mankind, this is why directly after this verse Allah says:

    The punishment of those who wage war with Allah and His Messenger and strive with might to make mischief through the land is execution, or crucifixion or the cutting off of the hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land.”

    So this verse refers to a particular type of people and it also strongly indicates that killing people is a form of waging war against God and His Messenger, it does not condone the killing of any westerner who does not want to embrace Islam as Dr Morey would like us to believe.

    Plus Dr Robert Morey tends to forget that there are a great number of Arabic Coptic Christians still living within the Arabian Peninsula, and we can’t forget about the Jews and Christians that lived within the Holy land of Jerusalem at the time of Muslims rule

    In Islamic Sharia there are four Punishments laid down for those who disobey the rulings of Allah and His Prophet (in subject to killing and so forth) who attempts to spread mischief on earth or who arm themselves and overtly intend to kill others…

    1) If one of the mentioned persons kills another then he himself will face the death penalty. If the victims heirs forgive him, he will still be executed because this is not a personal matter of the heirs but involves the social peace and harmony of the whole community (unless accidental)

    2) If he killed the person and also took his wealth then he will be publicly hanged so that it acts as deterrence (for others who desire to commit the crime)

    3) If the person who stole the wealth and did not kill the victim, then his right hand and left foot will be cut off.

    4) If the person does not steal nor kills anyone but instead aimed a weapon to infuse fright and terrorise people, then he will be extradited from his land. In other words, he will be separated from his family and will be imprisoned in another region.

    Some Scholars have commented that such a person should be extradited since there is a possibility that he will continue his crime in the new region. Instead the criminal should be imprisoned until he repents. The real aim is to protect the public from his behaviour, this will not be achieved by extradition but by ensuring he is kept behind bars and he repents sincerely. Makhool writes under this verse that Umar [r] remarked “I will keep such criminals in prison until I am sure they have repented. I will not let them go free into other regions where they will become a source of mischief for the inhabitants.” (Tafseer Qurtubi)

    The reason for revelation of this verse was when the people from the tribe of urena came to Madinah to accept Islam, they became sick. The Holy Prophet [s] advised them to drink milk mixed down with camel’s urine that they were given in charity. On doing this they were cured but they became so reviled that they killed the Shepard of the camels and ran away with 15 camels. The Holy Prophet [s] sent Hazrat Yassar [r] after them. These wretches however martyred Hazrat Yassar [r] after burning his eyes out and cutting of his hands and his feet. Later these people were arrested and bought back. The verse was revealed on this occasion.

    the punishment is applied to these following 3 types of people:

    1) He who obstructs and blocks the road (the highway man)
    2) He who blocks the way and seizes the wealth of the people
    3) and he who kills the people and seizes their goods.

    Their punishment will be the following, banishment, cut of the hands and the feet, execution.

    Also in regards of Islamic Shari ‘a we find In the Shafee fiqh book Umdat as Salik (reliance of the traveller) on pg. 616

    Section 015.0: the penalty for highway robbery

    015.1: the Caliphs obliged to summon whoever uses a weapon (o: though force suffices to be considered a weapon or taking money by dint of ones fists.) and makes people afraid to use the road (o: no matter whether in the wilderness, a village, or in the country, meaning he frightens those who pass along the way by means of his strength or weapons) if the highway man responds to the summons before he has injured anyone, then he is only disciplined. (Def: 017). If he steals the equivalent of 1.058 grams of gold under the previously mentioned conditions (014.1) both his right hand and his left foot are amputated. (A: the difference between a highway man and someone who takes by forcible seizure (dis: 014.6) is that the latter does so within earshot of help. While the offence of the highway man is far greater because he menaces the life line of the community and its trade routes.)

    015.2: if a highway man kills someone, he must be executed, even when the person entitled to retaliation (def: 03) aggress to forgo it. If the highway man robs and kills, he is killed and then left crucified for three days, if he wounds or maims someone; retaliation is taken against him, though it may be waived by those entitled to take it.


    The book further reads:

    015.3: (N: the penalty for highway robbery such as mandatory execution, crucifixion, and amputating the hand and the foot is cancelled if the highway man repents. (A: desists, and gives himself up) before he has been apprehended, though he is still liable to retaliation (def: 03) by parties entitled to it (A: for injuries or deaths he caused to victims and is financially responsible for restoring the money he has taken.) 616 Umdat as Salik.

    from the evidences I have shown we see clearly that the verse 5:33 does not refer to non Muslims who wish not to embrace Islam as Morey would have us think but it refers to those terrorists who rob, kill, harm and oppress people by use of force and so forth and here again we see Islam opposes terrorism.

    Indeed the Islamic law is just and am sure many people would nod their head in agreement with the above but yet there are some that still would think this ruling of the chopping of the hands and the feet to be extreme as many Christians voice but yet when missionaries quote this verse they do great injustice to the context.

    Further on in verse 34 in Sura 5 Allah says:

    Except those who repent before you have them in your power so know that Allah is the all forgiving and Merciful. (5:34)

    If the bandit or the mischief maker repents for his behaviour before the capture and publicly announces his desire to lead a life of peace, then the set punishments (i.e. public execution, to cut of the hands and the feet, to imprison) will be dropped, however if the victim of the crime does not forgive the offender, then the criminal will still face the decreed punishment. A criminal’s repentance will not be accepted after he has been arrested for his crime, but in fact will face the full extent of the law.

    The reason for this is because his repentance is no longer based on sincerity and truthfulness. This case is similar to a person who repents to Allah as he draws his last breathe before dying (Tafseer Qurtubi) and repentance at such a time is not accepted. (Tirmidhi, book of supplications)

    So the criminal has chance to repent and in doing so avoids the punishment only if the victim’s family overlook and pardon his wrongdoing. This is the nature of Allah the all Loving God who is willing to forgive, unlike the God of the Bible whom the Christians and Jews call Yahweh.

    In Jewish law if a burglar breaks into your home and you start fighting him but yet the man is too strong and overpowers you and you are on the brink of being killed when all of a sudden your wife comes to your rescue by grabbing his private's and squeezing them causing the attacker to flee in pain and by this method she saved your life but yet you are commanded by Yahweh to:

    cut of her hands and not to pity her (Deuteronomy 25:11-12)

    is this Just?

    In this respect which is more Just the Qur’an? Or the Bible? Is Yahweh really the God of love as Christians say? In reply to Morey cutting of your wife’s hands because she saves your life by squeezing the secrets of the attacker is unthinkable!

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    so much for your list of crap ...time for education

    THE MEANING OF JIHAD

    Jihad is a word that encompasses anything to do with struggle, a term often misunderstood to mean Holy War (Harbun Qudsun). A mother that brings up a child, A father working to put food on the table, a community building a school can also be termed as a Jihad, so in reality the word Jihad can have positive meaning whereas the word war may not always be a positive thing.

    JIHAD IN THE QURAN AND THE SUNNAH

    And whosoever STRIVES (JAAHADA), STRIVES (YUJAAHIDU) only for himself (29:6)

    As for those who STRIVE (JAHADU) in Us (the cause of Allah), We surely guide them to Our paths, and lo! Allah is with the good doers. (29:69)

    FIGHTING AINST ONES OWN EVIL IS A JIHAD

    The Holy Prophet said to the Muslims when they was returning from battle:
    "We are now returning from the lesser Jihad (Jihad ul Asghar) to the greater Jihad (Jihad ul Akbar) , the Jihad against the self." They asked: "What is the greater jihad? He said: "The servant's struggle against his lust." (Ibn al-Qayyim al-Fawa'id. Sunan Nisa'I, al-Bayhaqi in al-Zuhd al-Kabir (p. 165 §373=p. 198 §374) and al-Khatib in Tarikh Baghdad (13:493=13:523) cf. al-Ahdab, Zawa'id Tarikh Baghdad (9:309-311 §2077). Imam al-Ghazzali – ihya uluwm ud deen cited by Ibn Rajab in his Sharh Hadith Labbayk (p. 128))

    You have come back from the smaller jihad; what about the greater one?" They asked, "What is the greater jihad?" He [Ibn Abi `Abla] replied: "The jihad of the heart." (narrated by al-Nasa'i in his Kuna, narrated by al-Bayhaqi in al-Zuhd (p. 152). Ibn Hajar, Tahdhib al-Tahdhib (1:142)

    “The most excellent type of Jihad is to practice jihad against your own self and own desires for the sake of Allah., and the most excellent type of hijrah (emigration) is to abandon evil deeds and sin." (Tirmidhi, Ahmad, and Tabarani, Ibn Majah, Al Hakim Sahih Ibn Hibbanm, No. 4862, Ibn Hibban (#1624, 2519): Authentic; - Shu`ayb al-Arna'ut (Commentary on Ibn Hibban): authentic; - al-Hakim: sahih; - `Iraqi confirms him; - it is also in; - Albani included it in the "Sahiha".)

    DOING A PERFECT HAJJ IS A JIHAD

    A'isha, Allah be well-pleased with her, asked: 'Messenger of Allah, we see jihad as the best of deeds, so shouldn't we join it?' He replied, 'But the best jihad is a perfect Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).'" (Sahih Al-Bukhari #2784)

    LOOKING AFTER THE PARENTS IS A JIHAD

    On another occasion, a man asked: "Should I join the jihad?" The Prophet asked, upon him peace, "Do you have parents?" The man said yes. The Prophet said: "Then do jihad by serving them!" (Sahih Al-Bukhari #5972)

    SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN A COURT OF AN OPPRESSOR IS A JIHAD

    Muhammad encouraged Muslims to demand justice in the name of Allah. When asked: "'What kind of jihad is better?' Muhammad replied, 'A word of truth in front of an oppressive ruler!'" Sunan Al-Nasa'i , No. 4209

    MILLATARY JIHAD IS NOT THE 6TH PILLAR OF ISLAM

    "And it is not proper for the believers to go out to fight in Jihad all together. Of every troop of them, a party only should go forth, that they (who are left behind) may get instructions in the deen, and that they may warn their people when they return to them, so that they may beware (of evil).” (Quran 9:122)

    Every Muslim has to forfill the pillars of Islam, the witnessing of there is no God but Allah and Muhammad saw is His Messeneger, the establishment of prayer 5 times a day, paying zakat, fasting in the month of Ramadan and doing pilgrimage to makkah but the above verse shows that not everybody has to do a military jihad therefore it is not a pillar of Islam.

    EVEN NON MUSLIMS CAN DO JIHAD AGAINST MUSLIMS

    And We have stressed on man concerning his parents, his mother bore him undergoing weakness upon weakness and his weaning takes two years that give thanks to Me and to your parents. Lastly, the return is towards Me. And if they both do Jihad to make you associate with Me a thing of which you have no knowledge then obey them not and accompany them in the world very well and follow him who turned to Me repently, then to Me is your return, I shall inform you what you used to do. , sura 31 verse 14-15

    We have insisted on man to be kind towards parents. And if they do Jihad to make you associate with Me of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. To Me is your return, then I will inform you, what you used to do. Surah 29 verse 8

    KAREN ARMSTRONG SPEAKS ABOUT THE ISLAMIC JIHAD

    In her book "Muhammed," author Karen Armstrong writes: "Fighting and warfare might sometimes be necessary, but it was only a minor part of the whole jihad or struggle. A well-known tradition (hadith) has Muhammad say on returning from a battle, ' We return from the little jihad to the greater jihad,' the more difficult and crucial effort to conquer the forces of evil in oneself and and in one's own society in all the details of daily life." (Karen Armstrong, "Muhammed: A biography of the Prophet," Harper SanFrancisco, (1993 )

    GOD ALLOWS THE FIGHTING AGAINST OPPRESSION

    "To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to defend themselves), because they are wronged - and verily, Allah is Most Powerful to give them victory - (they are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right - (for no cause) except that they say, 'Our Lord is Allah'..." (The Holy Quran, 22:39-40)

    "Fight in the cause of Allah against those who fight against you, but do not transgress limits. Lo! Allah loves not aggressors. ...And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against transgressors."(The Holy Quran, 2:190, 193)

    "And why should you not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)? - Men, women, and children, whose cry is: 'Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You, one who will protect; and raise for us from You, one who will help.'" (The Holy Quran, 4:75)

    "And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, (are not cowed but) fight back."(The Holy Quran, 42:39)

    "They ask you (Muhammad) concerning fighting in the Sacred Month. Say, 'Fighting therein is a grave (offense) but graver is it in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the path of Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and drive out its inhabitants. Persecution is worse than killing. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith, if they can..."(The Holy Quran, 2:217)


    TO BE KIND TO THE NON MUSLIMS WHO DON?T FIGHT AGAINST YOU

    God does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you over religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. God loves those who are just. God merely forbids you from taking as friends those who have fought you over religion and driven you from your homes and who supported your expulsion... (Qur?an, 60:8-9)

    RULES OF COMBAT

    Upon the Holy Prophets advice Abu Bakr gave the following command to his army before the first Syrian expedition: Stop, O people that I may give you ten rules to keep by heart: Do not commit treachery, nor depart from the right path. You must not mutilate, neither kill a child or aged man or woman. Do not destroy a palm tree, nor burn it with fire and do not cut any fruitful tree. You must not slay any of the flock or herds or the camels, save for your subsistence. You are likely to pass by people who have devoted their lives to monastic services; leave them to that to which they have devoted their lives. You are likely, likewise, to find people who will present to you meals of many kinds. You may eat; but do no forget to mention the name of Allah. (Tabari, ta rich, 1, 1850, cited in majid khadduri, war and peace in the law of Islam, john Hopkins press, Baltimore, 1955, p. 102.)

    PROHIBTION OF KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE WOMEN AND CHILDREN

    if someone kills another person ? unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth ? it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind... (Qur?an, 5:32)

    do not kill anyone God has made inviolate, except with the right to do so, and do not fornicate; anyone who does that will receive an evil punishment. (Qur?an, 25:68)

    When the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the Muslims who were with him. He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the cause of Allah. Fight against those who do not believe in Allah. Wage a holy war: do not embezzle the spoils, do not break your pledge, do not mutilate (the dead) bodies and do not kill the children.(Sahih Muslim 804)

    when the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, sent out a raiding party, he would say to them, 'Make your raids in the name of Allah in the way of Allah? do not kill children. (Maliks Muwatta 21:11)

    The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade those to kill women and children. He said that one of the men fighting had said, 'The wife of ibn Abi Huqayq began screaming and I repeatedly raised my sword against her. Then I would remember the prohibition of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, so I would stop. Had it not been for that, we would have been rid of her.' " (Maliks Muwatta 21:8)

    The Holy Prophet said Do not kill children. Avoid touching people who devote themselves to worship in churches! Never murder women and the elderly. Do not set trees on fire or cut them down. Never destroy houses! (Ahmad Diya?al deen al hadith, vol one 84/8)

    Abu Bakr on a military expedition said: "I advise you ten things: Do not kill women or children or an aged, infirm person. Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place. Do not slaughter sheep or camels except for food. Do not burn bees and do not scatter them. Do not steal from the booty, and do not be cowardly." (Imam Maliks Muwatta 21:10)

    The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) did not kill the children of the enemy, so you should not kill the children. (Sahih Muslim 8:35)

    PROHIBITION OF MUTALATION AND ROBERRY

    The Prophet forbade robbery and also forbade mutilation (or maiming) of bodies. (Sahih Bukhari 3:654)

    When the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the Muslims who were with him. He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the cause of Allah. Fight against those who do not believe in Allah. Wage a holy war: do not embezzle the spoils, do not break your pledge, do not mutilate (the dead) bodies and do not kill the children.(Sahih Muslim 804)


    when the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, sent out a raiding party, he would say to them, 'Make your raids in the name of Allah in the way of Allah. Do not mutilate and do not kill children.' (Maliks Muwatta 21:11)

    PROHIBITION OF BURNING PEOPLE WITH FIRE

    Narrated Ikrima Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn Abbas, who said, "Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, 'Don't punish (anybody) with Allah's Punishment.? (Sahih Bukhari 4:60)

    Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud We were with the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him)
    during a journey. He went to ease himself. We saw a bird with her two young ones and we captured her young ones. The bird came and began to spread its wings. The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) came and said: Who grieved this for its young ones? Return its young ones to it. He also saw an ant village that we had burnt. He asked: Who has burnt this? We
    replied: We. He said: It is not proper to punish with fire except the Lord of fire. (Sunan Abu Dawud 1131)

    PROHIBITION OF COMMITTING SUCICIDE

    Do not kill yourselves indeed Allah has been Most Merciful with you And who does that out of aggression and injustice then We shall burn him in fire and that is easy for Allah (4:29-30)

    Do not take life which Allah hath made sacred.? (6:151, 17:33 25:68)

    Suicide bombing is an action of despair and Prophet Jacob said to his sons: Do not despair the spirit of Allah, indeed no one despairs the spirit of Allah except the disbelieving people (12:86)

    The Prophet peace be upon him said: ?Indeed, whoever kills himself, then certainly he will be punished in the Fire of Hell, wherein he shall dwell forever.?(Sahih Bukhari 5778 and Sahih Muslim 109 and 110)

    Whoever commits suicide with piece of iron will be punished with the same piece of iron in the Hell Fire." Narrated Jundab the Prophet said, "A man was inflicted with wounds and he committed suicide, and so Allah said: My slave has caused death on himself hurriedly, so I forbid Paradise for him." (Sahih Bukhari 7:670, 2:445)

    the Prophet peace be upon him said let there be no harming your self or harming other people (Hadith 32 of Imam Nawawi?s 40 hadith )

    PROHIBTION OF WISHING FOR DEATH

    The Holy Prophet said: none amongst you should make a request for death, and do not call for it before it comes, for when any of you dies, he ceases (to do good) deeds and the life of a believer is not prolonged but for goodness. (Sahih Muslim 1234, Sahih Bukhari 7:577)

    One companion of the Holy Prophet said ?Had the Prophet not forbidden us to wish for death, I would have wished for it." (Bukhari 7:576)

    the Holy Prophet recommended to supplicate by saying: O Allah, keep me alive as long as there is goodness in life for me and bring death to me when there is goodness in death for me. (Sahih Bukhari 7:575)

    DOES ISLAM TEACH TO HATE THE JEWS?

    Narrated Anas ibn Malik When Safiyyah heard that Hafsah had called her a Jew's daughter she wept. Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) came in where she was while she was weeping and asked her what was making her weep. When she told him Hafsah had called her a Jew's daughter the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "You are a prophet's daughter, your paternal uncle was a prophet, and you are married to a prophet, so what has she to boast of over you?" He then said, "Fear Allah, Hafsah." Tirmidhi 1645

    Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As Mujahid said that Abdullah ibn Amr slaughtered a sheep and said: Have you presented a gift from it to my neighbour, the Jew, for I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Gabriel kept on commending the neighbour to me so that I thought he would make an heir? Abu Dawud 2446

    Narrated Abdur Rahman bin Abi Laila Sahl bin Hunaif and Qais bin Sad were sitting in the city of Al-Qadisiya. A funeral procession passed in front of them and they stood up. They were told that funeral procession was of one of the inhabitants of the land i.e. of a non-believer, under the protection of Muslims. They said, "A funeral procession passed in front of the Prophet and he stood up. When he was told that it was the coffin of a Jew, he said, "Is it not a living being (soul)?" Bukahri 2:339

    Narrated Abu Said Al Khudri While Allah's Apostle was sitting, a Jew came and said, "O Abul Qasim! One of your companions has slapped me on my face." The Prophet asked who that was. He replied that he was one of the Ansar. The Prophet sent for him, and on his arrival, he asked him whether he had beaten the Jew. He (replied in the affirmative and) said, "I heard him taking an oath in the market saying, 'By Him Who gave Moses superiority over all the human beings.' I said, 'O wicked man! (Has Allah given Moses superiority) even over Muhammad? I became furious and slapped him over his face." The Prophet said, "Do not give a prophet superiority over another, for on the Day of Resurrection all the people will fall unconscious and I will be the first to emerge from the earth, and will see Moses standing and holding one of the legs of the Throne. I will not know whether Moses has fallen unconscious or the first unconsciousness was sufficient for him." Bukhari 3:595

    THE FIRST SUICIDE MARTYR

    The first suicide martyr is Samson which is narrated in the Bible (Judges chapter 16) He committed suicide along with killing 3000 palestinian men and women (Judges 16:27) the Jews and the Christians glorify this act, but within the doctrines Islam this ideology is absent.

    PROHIBITION OF MAKING MISCHEIF IN THE EARTH

    Eat and drink of God's provision and do not go about the earth corrupting it. (Qur?an, 2:60)

    Do not corrupt the earth after it has been put right. Call on Him fearfully and eagerly. God?s mercy is close to the good-doers. (Qur?an, 7:56)

    God does not uphold the works of those who cause mischief.? (Qur?an, 10:81)

    When they are told, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are only putting things right." No indeed! They are the corrupters, but they are not aware of it. (Qur?an, 2:11-12)

    But as for those who break God?s contract after it has been agreed and sever what God has commanded to be joined, and cause corruption in the earth, the curse will be upon them. They will have the Evil Abode. (Qur?an, 13:25)

    GOD HATES CORRUPTION AND MISCHEIF

    God does not love corruption" . (Qur?an, 2:205)

    GOD IS AGAINST WARMONGERS

    Each time they kindle the fire of war, God extinguishes it. They rush about the earth corrupting it. God does not love corrupters. (Qur?an, 5:64)

    Whenever he holds the upperhand, he goes about the earth corrupting it, destroying (people's) crops and breeding stock. God does not love corruption. When he is told to have fear of God, he is seized by pride which drives him to wrongdoing. Hell will be enough for him! What an evil resting-place. (Qur?an, 2:205-206)

    THE PUNISHMENT OF THOSE WHO CAUSE MISCHEIF IN THE EARTH

    There are only grounds against those who wrong people and act as tyrants in the earth without any right to do so. Such people will have a painful punishment. (Qur?an, 42:42)

    But as for those who break God?s contract after it has been agreed and sever what God has commanded to be joined, and cause corruption in the earth, the curse will be upon them. They will have the Evil Abode. (Qur?an, 13:25)

    Those who wage war against Allah and Allah and His Messenger and strive to make mischief in the earth, their punishment is execution, or crucifixion or the cutting off of the hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land (5:33 Qur?an)

    PAST NATIONS DESTROYED FOR GOING TO EXTREMES IN THE RELGION

    Allah says ?Do not go to extremes in your religion? (Quran 4:171)

    The Holy Prophet said ?Beware of extremism for extremism destroyed the people before you (Ahmad and others) ?iyyakum wal ?ghuluw-wa fa-inna-ma ah(tied ha)laka man kaa na Qablakum al ?ghuluw-wu.

    GOD FORBIDS GROUP METALAITYS IN WRONG DEEDS

    Help one another in benevolence and piety. Do not help each other to wrongdoing and enmity. And fear God. God is severe in retribution. (Qur?an, 5:2)

    Let not the hatred of a people [who once] obstructed you from the Sacred Mosque lead you to transgress. Help one another in benevolence and piety, and help not one another in sin and transgression? (Qur?an, 5:2)

    But do not obey any vile swearer of oaths, any backbiter, slandermonger, impeder of good, evil aggressor, gross, coarse and furthermore, despicable.(Qur?an, 68:10-13)

    GOD COMMANDS FORGIVENESS NOT REVENGE

    We did not create the heavens and earth and everything between them, except with truth. The Hour is certainly coming, so forgive with fair forbearance. (Qur?an, 15:85)

    Those of you possessing affluence and ample wealth should not make oaths that they will not give to their relatives and the very poor and those who have made emigration in the way of God. They should rather pardon and overlook. Would you not love God to forgive you? God is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Qur?an, 24:22)

    Make allowances for people? (Qur?an, 7:199)

    A good action and a bad action are not the same. Repel the bad with something better and, if there is enmity between you and someone else, he will be like a bosom friend.? (Qur?an 41:34)

    The repayment of a bad action is one equivalent to it. But if someone pardons and puts things right, his reward is with God. Certainly He does not love wrongdoers.? (Qur?an, 42:40)

    those who give in times of both ease and hardship, those who control their rage and pardon other people ? God loves the good-doers" (Qur?an, 3:134)

    You will never cease to come upon some act of treachery on their part, except for a few of them. Yet pardon them, and overlook. God loves good-doers. (Qur?an, 5:13)

    GOD COMMANDS JUSTICE IN ALL CASES

    God commands you to return to their owners the things you hold on trust and, when you judge between people, to judge with justice. How excellent is what God exhorts you to do! God is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (Qur?an, 4:58 )

    if you do judge, judge between them justly (Quran 5:42)

    O You who believe! Be upholders of justice, bearing witness for God alone, even against yourselves or your parents and relatives. Whether they are rich or poor, God is well able to look after them. Do not follow your own desires and deviate from the truth. If you twist or turn away, God is aware of what you do. (Qur?an, 4:135)

    O Mankind! We created you from a male and female, and made you into peoples and tribes so that you might come to know each other. The noblest among you in God?s sight is that one of you who best performs his duty. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Qur?an, 49:13)

    O You who believe! Show integrity for the sake of God, bearing witness with justice. Do not let hatred for a people incite you into not being just. Be just. That is closer to faith. Heed God (alone). God is aware of what you do. (Qur?an, 5:8 )

    GOD COMMANDS GOODNESS

    And do good as God has been good to you. And do not seek to cause corruption in the earth. God does not love corrupters. (Qur?an, 28:77)

    Be good to your parents and relatives and to orphans and the very poor, and to neighbours who are related to you and neighbours who are not related to you, and to companions and travellers and your slaves. God does not love anyone vain or boastful. (Qur?an, 4:36)

    ISLAM ENCOURAGES TO BE MERCIFUL AND COMPASSIONATE

    In a famous saying of Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, he says: ?The merciful are shown mercy by the Merciful one. Show mercy to those on earth and you will be shown mercy by the One in Heaven.?

    The Qur?an declares that Muhammad was sent as a Mercy to the worlds (21:107) something to which he himself testified when he refused to curse a warring tribe: ?I have not been sent to curse, but as a summoner and as a mercy?.

    the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, declared that ?people are God?s children and those dearest to God are the ones who treat His children kindly.?12

    Muhammad God bless him and grant him peace, used to say that even if one person remains hungry in a particular area, no angel will descend in that area until that hungry person is fed.13

    GOD COMMANDS COMPASSION

    Then to be one of those who have faith and urge each other to steadfastness and urge each other to compassion. Those are the Companions of the Right. (Qur?an, 90:17-18)

    ISLAM SPREADS PEACE

    O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of Satan. He is an outright enemy to you. (The Qur?an, 48:26)

    THE TRUE SERVANT OF ALLAH

    And the true servants of the Merciful (Allah) are those who walk on the earth with humility and softness and when the ignorant address them they reply with peace (Quran 25:68)

    SPEAK GENTLY WITH PEOPLE

    Speak good to people (Quran 2:83)

    Go to Pharaoh; he has overstepped the bounds. But speak to him with gentle words so that hopefully he will pay heed or show some fear. (Qur?an, 20:43-44)

    And to Madyan their brother Shu?ayb. He said, ?My people, worship God! You have no deity apart from Him. Do not give short measure and short weight. I see you prospering and I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing Day. My people! Give full measure and full weight with justice; do not diminish people's goods; and do not go about the earth, corrupting it. What endures with God is better for you if you are believers. I am not set over you as your keeper.? They said, ?Shu?ayb, do your prayers instruct you that we should abandon what our fathers worshipped or stop doing whatever we want to with our wealth? Yet you are such a lenient, normal person!? He said, ?My people! What do you think? If I do possess a Clear Sign from my Lord and He has given me His good provision, I do not want to oppose you in what way I am forbidding you. I only want to put things right as far as I can. My success is with God alone. I have put my trust in Him and I turn to Him.? (Qur?an, 11:84-88)

    tender-hearted and forbearing.? (Qur?an, 9:114)

    It is a mercy from God that you were gentle with them. If you had been rough or hard of heart, they would have scattered from around you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them, and consult with them about the matter. Then when you have reached a firm decision, put your trust in God. God loves those who put their trust in Him. (Qur?an, 3:159)

    ISLAM IS NOT BY FORCE!

    Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair admonition, and argue with them in the kindest way. Your Lord knows best who is misguided from His way. And He knows best who are guided. (Qur?an, 16:125)

    So remind them! You are only a reminder. You are not in control of them. (Qur?an, 88:21-22)

    Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair admonition...? (Qur?an, 16:125)

    You are not responsible for their guidance, but God guides whoever He wills.? (Qur?an, 2:272)

    To you your religion, and to me, mine? (Qur?an, 109:6)

    If your Lord had willed, all the people on the earth would have believed. Do you think you can force people to be believers? (Qur?an, 10:99)

    We know best what they say and you [O Muhammad] are not a compeller over them. But warn by the Qur?an whoever fears My warning. (Qur?an, 50:45)

    Do those who believe not know that if God had wanted to He could have guided all mankind? (Qur?an, 13:31)

    If your Lord had willed, all the people on the earth would have believed. Do you think you can force people to be believers? (Qur?an, 10:99)

    There is no compulsion in religion. True guidance has become clearly distinct from error. Anyone who rejects false deities and has belief in God has grasped the Firmest Handhold, which will never give way. God is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Qur?an, 2:256)

    Say: ?Mankind! The truth has come to you from your Lord. Whoever is guided is only guided for his own good. Whoever is misguided is only misguided to his detriment. I have not been set over you as a guardian.? (Qur?an, 10:108)


    "of any organized attempt to force the acceptance of Islam on the non-Muslim population, or of any systematic persecution intended to stamp out the Christian religion, we hear nothing. Had the caliphs chosen to adopt either course of action, they might have swept away Christianity as easily as Ferdinand and Isabella drove Islam out of Spain, or Louis XIV made Protestantism penal in France, or the Jews were kept out of England for 350 years. The Eastern Churches in Asia were entirely cut off from communion with the rest of Christiandom throughout which no one would have been found to lift a finger on their behalf, as heretical communions. So that the very survival of these Churches to the present day is a strong proof of the generally tolerant attitude of Mohammedan [sic] governments towards them"( Arnold, Sir Thomas W., The Preaching of Islam, a History of the Propagation of the Muslim Faith, Westminister A. Constable & Co., London, 1896, p. 80)

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    Andaraawus, I have read through your response and find nothing new. It is the same typical religious response when faced with the facts of what is actually happening(proof's in the pudding). It is the same old "distract from the topic at hand by changing the subject" routine, and spewing out a bunch of verbal diarrea about topics that have nothing to do with what was originally stated.
    I believe alot of muslims would never hurt anyone. I also believe that a disproportionally large number of muslims are quite willing to hurt or kill others when compared to other religions (ie. buddists, hindus, sikhs, christians, jews, etc). I know you will give examples of other atrocities by members of other religions, and I will agree with you that they did indeed happen. The facts still remain, many, many, many more killings are committed by muslims on a regular basis than any of the others. You can change the subject all you want, but the facts remain. Read the list. I can post much more. I could post December.
    I should know better than to try to convince you, as with most religious people, even when faced with indisputable facts, you will still deny what you see.
    Many muslims love to hate. Not all perhaps, but many more than with other religions. Read the list slowly, and ponder the significance of each incident. Imagine you are there. Imangine you are the child of the schoolmaster watching as the muslim men cut off your father's head because they don't like his way of thinking. That is your religion of peace, tolerance, and compassion. Killing someone for thinking in a different manner than what you do is barbaric, uncivilized, and comparible to the behavior of a wild beast. Like I said, I don't believe all muslims would hurt others. If you are one that would not, then congratulations, you are civilized.

    .
    No that is not our religion of peace, it's what we are trying to tell you, islam teaches the opposite, its up to the person, muslim or non-muslim, to follow what islam says

    Killing someone for thinking in a different manner than what you do is barbaric, uncivilized, and comparible to the behavior of a wild beast

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    and plus he has commietd a error called the red herring , notice how he didnt even touch the issue at hand, with the context of the first thread but totally shot in a different direction talking about israel and blah blah blah, did i ever mention israel in my post? no ...

    the reasonable thing to do would be to read the first post before posting some irrelevant crap that doesnt even involve the subject...

    where in the Quran does it say to the Muslim:

    Blow yourself up! kill innocent israelis! Kill the Jews!

    we are dealing with the Quran and violence not Israel and the problems therein.

    Is it true that Arabic books are banned in Israel ? if so where are the Qurans?

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    oh i didnt see his reply ...

    well pop goes the weisel.

    Islam is against terrorism whether it be state terrorism or vigilante terrorism, im sure that pulling loads of referenecs from ira bombings and so forth will not prove that the Christian faith teaches terror.

    When dealing with such claims we have to look to the primary texts and the teachings of Islam in which i have done.

    I have gave sufficent evidence in which he has failed to address instead he has resulted to ad hominem attacks by saying i am spurting out
    verbal diarrea about topics that have nothing to do with what was originally stated.
    Infact you will find it very relevant to the topic at hand, and he hasnt addressed one point put forth.

    I believe alot of muslims would never hurt anyone.
    bravo billy boy and the burning questiuon is why?

    (proof's in the pudding).
    correct answer , 10 scooby snacks to the contestant!

    RULES OF COMBAT

    Upon the Holy Prophets advice Abu Bakr gave the following command to his army before the first Syrian expedition: Stop, O people that I may give you ten rules to keep by heart: Do not commit treachery, nor depart from the right path. You must not mutilate, neither kill a child or aged man or woman. Do not destroy a palm tree, nor burn it with fire and do not cut any fruitful tree. You must not slay any of the flock or herds or the camels, save for your subsistence. You are likely to pass by people who have devoted their lives to monastic services; leave them to that to which they have devoted their lives. You are likely, likewise, to find people who will present to you meals of many kinds. You may eat; but do no forget to mention the name of Allah. (Tabari, ta rich, 1, 1850, cited in majid khadduri, war and peace in the law of Islam, john Hopkins press, Baltimore, 1955, p. 102.)
    Just out of curiousity, and I'm just asking because I am curious, why does a religion of peace have rules of combat?

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    Andaraawus, You are a very angry man. Is that a normal trait in your group of friends? Is this a typical muslim response? So quick to lash out. Would you hit me if we were sitting together? If it were possible for Allah to sit with us, would he want you to? I doubt it. I think Mohammed would though.
    I actually didn't mention Israel either. As far as the list goes, I only posted it in the most relevent place. Yes, it was a little bit of topic, I agree.
    Perhaps, you are missing the point. I come as an unbeliever, and post a topic to engage in discussion about what seems to be the truth. Seeking answers, perhaps the approach was a little antagonistic, but effective. I am practically begging to be proven wrong. It would be welcome see that I was wrong, rather than the alternative. It would seem an opportunity for you to bring someone to islam, by demonstrating the peace and love for others that you say is the basis of islam. Instead, sadly, you only prove what is said in the demonstration of your hostile words. Moss, on the other hand provides a shimmer of hope through his more gentle approach. How about it Andaraawus? Are you feeling the love? Is Allah pleased with your hostile attitude? Does god endorse this? If we were seated together, would you want to hit me?

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    Your question is appreciated no worrys

    to keep the peace during the battle field, you wont find an army on earth past and present with moral like this, as for the rules of combat unfortunately in this world there needs to be order, where is the peace and freedom if one nation is being oppressed? combat needs to used at times and difficult situations. in a nutshell the Quran says

    Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said : Our Lord is Allah . For had it not been for Allah ' s repelling some men by means of others , cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques , wherein the name of Allah is oft mentioned , would assuredly have been pulled down . Verily Allah helpeth one who helpeth Him . Lo! Allah is Strong , Almighty (Quran 22.40)

    Mashallah that's a good question by br. prawned, alhumdulillah all praise be to God.
    Basically, islam no doubt is a peaceful religion, that is its ultimate aim to estabilish peace, but islam is a practical religion and also realistic. Sometimes force is needed to achieve peace, you can tollerate so much, but when an enemy oppress you so much you will need to fight for freedom of people, for self defence, to stop oppression etc. In these cases you need to do Jihad, that is striving in the cause of Allah, and in this case to estabilish peace, because the opposition is against peace and is promoting evil
    In these cases fighting is allowed, but rules had to be put in place so people would not trangress. If an enemy was to surrender, a muslim had to let him live, and not only that the muslim had to guide him to a place of security! imagine that bro, not only does he let him live but he guides him to a place of shelter
    I mean look at the rules of war, it says not to even destro a tree, subhanallah glory be to allah, how beautiful is that, not even a tree can be destroyed.

    Sorry bro you can't say that. What makes you think Muhammed SAW would allow that, if allah wouldn't then how could Muhammed SAW his messenger. i advise you to read a biography of the holy prophet Peace Be Upon Him, he would receive insults far far greater than what you've hurled at him and he wouldn't retaliate.
    This is a sincere question now, what makes you think Muhammed Peace Be Upon Him would do such a thing, are you going to say based on his followers. This is not a very good argument, you can't judge a person by his followers. think of how many muslims there are in the world, over a billion, think about that number over a billion. There are bound to be some "extremists" or whatever you like to call them, they are a minority who do such acts, vast majority follow Muhammed SAW to the best of their ability, but unfortunately the small minority due to their major actions have greater impact and unfortunately portray islam in an incorrect manner
    With all due respect, i think it's quite illogical, unfair and in some ways ignorant to judge a man, loved by so many, on the basis of a minority of people. Do you honestly think so many people would love this man if he was full of hate, do you think this many people would convert to islam if the so called starter liked killing people?

    this is simply a ad hominem laced with a red herring people he cant refute the facts so he turns his attention to me and myself and attempts to belittle my character.

    If it were possible for Allah to sit with us, would he want you to? I doubt it. I think Mohammed would though.
    I think it would be a good idea for you to refer to my document The Prophets Anger and also Imam Ghazalis The Causes of Anger and It's Medicine document

    I dont know if you can remeber zippy out of rainbow?

    I actually didn't mention Israel either. As far as the list goes, I only posted it in the most relevent place. Yes, it was a little bit of topic, I agree.
    Red Herring admitted no problem

    Seeking answers,
    more like pusihing you bigoted behaviour down out throats

    perhaps the approach was a little antagonistic, but effective. I am practically begging to be proven wrong. It would be welcome see that I was wrong,
    i dont know what you expect from me , maybe a box of choclates and a bunch of flowers for valentines

    rather than the alternative. It would seem an opportunity for you to bring someone to islam, by demonstrating the peace and love for others that you say is the basis of islam. Instead, sadly, you only prove what is said in the demonstration of your hostile words.
    yes well i wwill deal with people accordingly

    Moss, on the other hand provides a shimmer of hope through his more gentle approach. How about it Andaraawus? Are you feeling the love? Is Allah pleased with your hostile attitude? Does god endorse this? If we were seated together, would you want to hit me?
    you see how moss asked ? now how nice moss was and i dealt with him accordingly , if you dont like my attitude and sterness towards you then reconsider your approach , and i will treat you accordingly, speak nicely and i will to ...thank you

    Re: The Qur’an And Violence

    If we wanted to talk about atrocities perpetrated against Muslims, we'd be here forever. We can talk about the some 30 000 civilians killed from the invasion in Iraq, concerning which experts say "most of those who died were women and children and air strikes from coalition forces accounted for most of the violent deaths.". Or we can talk about the 28 masacres of palestinian Muslims. Or maybe let's talk about the 360 000 Muslims executed in China and the torture of Imaams. Or the "Many old and weak Tibetan Muslims as well as children that died of starvation". And we haven't even begun looking at Kashmir, Chechnya, Bosnia or Kosovo either.
