During the recent attacks in Paris, Islam has become more and more ‘deserving’ of being associated with Terrorism.
When Terrorism is mentioned, Islam has to be added to it.
‘Muslims are terrorists!’
This is what the media promotes nowadays.
All Muslims are terrorists!
Actually, if you follow the media, you will inevitably come out with this mindset…but if you research then you will actually realise that Islam isn’t ISIS and that the name Islam itself has the meaning of peace!
So how can a religion which means ‘peace’ ever promote terrorism?
Islam is derived from the word ‘salama’ which according to the Hans Wehr Arabic to English dictionary means to be safe and sound, unharmed, unimpaired, intact, safe, secure.. etc.
Islam means submission, resignation, reconciliation to the will of Allah.
From this, we can deduce that Islam is a terrorist religion???
In the era of the four rightly guided Khulafaa (Caliphs), they were taught that before war, they should present Islam to the masses. They cannot kill anyone without presenting Islam to them.
And this is exactly what they carried out…
and through all this Muslims are terrorists??
In the era of our holy Prophet Muhammed (salAllahu alayhi wa salam), when the non believers would try harming him, he never once prayef for bad to afflict them. In the well known incident of Taif, the people attacked him so badly that blood was dripping till his sandals. He could’ve prayed to Allah to send a punishment to these people but he didn’t. He prayed that they may be guided.
Now tell me that Muslims are terrorists???
A Hadith (narration/tradition) states that a Muslim is he who other Muslims are safe from his hands and tongue. Meaning we shouldn’t (okay we try) harm the next Muslim by speaking bad of him or harming him physically (i.e the hand).
ISLAM IS A PERFECT, PRISTINE AND A PURE RELIGION BUT MUSLIMS ARE NOT. SO DON’T CONFUSE THE RELIGION WITH IT’S FOLLOWERS. DON’T BLAME ISLAM FOR THE ACTIONS OF THE FOLLOWERS.
ISIS is NOT a part of Islam.
Islam is the religion of those who believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and destiny that all good and bad is from Allah.
Islam is to believe that Muhammed (salAllahu alayhi wa salam) is the final messenger and no prophet will come after him. To believe that all the Companions (radhiyAllahu anhum) are Muslims and are on truth is part of believing as well.
To end of my rant, I’d like to say that please Muslims are not terrorists.
I hope I got my point across.
