What the Islamic scriptures really say about jihad and violence ?

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

What the Islamic scriptures really say about jihad and violence?

 

For years Islamic terrorists have justified their actions as being compelled by their faith. Osama Bin Laden reportedly thanked Allah when he heard the news of this week’s attack. Other terrorist groups invoke Islam as well. Hezbollah, the name of one militant group, is the Arabic word for Party of God; Hamas is the Islamic Resistance Movement.

Are the terrorists who cite the Qur’an distorting the spirit of the religion or depicting its emphasis accurately? Here are several of the Qur’an passages most frequently cited, and analysis from Islamic scholars.

On Jihad or “Holy War”

Chapter 2, verse 190: Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loves not transgressors.

This portion of the Qur’an was written in about 606 C.E., when the Prophet Muhammad and his followers were under attack in the city of Medinah, says
Imam Yahya Hendi,

a Qur’anic scholar who is the Muslim chaplain at Georgetown University. There, they had established their own state. But various coalitions of non-Muslim tribes–including Christians, Jews, atheists and animists–continued to go to war with them. This portion of the Qur’an explains their reasoning behind striking back.

What Islam Really Says about Killing the Innocent ?

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

5-32

Taken from Introduction to The Book of Jihad and Expedition, by Abdul Hamid Siddiqui. Read the entire text.

Even in a declared war, certain rules must be followed:

The Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) has given clear instructions about the behaviour of the Muslim army. He observed:

“Set out for Jihad in the name of Allah and for the sake of Allah. Do not lay hands on the old verging on death, on women, children and babes. Do not steal anything from the booty and collect together all that falls to your lot in the battlefield and do good, for Allah loves the virtuous and the pious.”

Do animals have rights?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

 

Do animals have rights?

The vegetarian argument is that killing animals for the benefit of humans is cruel and an infringement of their rights. They put both on the same level without conceding any superiority to humans over animals. This argument is seriously flawed, because if animals had rights comparable to those of humans, they must also have equivalent duties. In other words, we must be able to blame them and punish them if they violate the rights of others. It is absurd that it should be considered a crime for humans to kill a sheep, but natural for a lion to do so. The problem stems from a misconception of the role of human life within the animal kingdom: a denial of purposeful creation within a clearly defined hierarchy degrades humans to the level of any other creature. Yet even then, the argument is illogical: Why should plants, for example, be denied the same protection from a violation of the sanctity of their life?

Is Islamic slaughter cruel?

The question of how an animal should be slaughtered to avoid cruelty is a different one. It is true that when the blood flows from the throat of an animal it looks violent, but just because meat is now bought neatly and hygienically packaged on supermarket shelves does not mean the animal didn’t have to die? Non-Islamic slaughter methods dictate that the animal should be rendered unconscious before slaughter. This is usually achieved by stunning or electrocution. Is it less painful to shoot a bolt into a sheep’s brain or to ring a chicken’s neck than to slit its throat? To watch the procedure does not objectively tell us what the animal feels.

What does Islam say about homosexuality?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Islam teaches that homosexual acts are sinful and punishable by God. This teaching comes not from human beings, but from the Creator of all humans. God tells us in His own words how He punished the people of Lot for their homosexual behaviour.

The story of prophet Lot, on whom be peace, finds mention in several Qur’anic passages, especially Chapter 26:160-175 which reads:

“The people of Lut rejected the apostles. Behold, their brother Lut said to them: “Will ye not fear (God)? “I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust. “So fear God and obey me. “No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from the lord of the Worlds. “Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, “And leave those whom God has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing (all limits)!” They said: “If thou desist not, O Lut! thou wilt assuredly be cast out!”

Is Allah forgiving or revengeful?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Allah forgiving or revengeful?

The Qur’an says several times that Allah is most Merciful and Forgiving but also says many times that He gives severe punishment. Is He Forgiving or Revengeful?

1. Allah is most Merciful

The Qur’an says several times that Allah is the most Merciful. In fact all the 114 Surahs i.e. chapters of the Glorious Qur’an except for Surah Taubah chapter 9, begin with the beautiful formula, Bismillah-hir-Rahman-nir-Rahim, which means, “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful”.

2. Allah is Forgiving

The Glorious Qur’an mentions in several verses including Surah Nisa, chapter 4 verse 25 and Surah Maidah, chapter 5 verse 74:

And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

3. Allah gives severe punishment to the deserving

Islam says “Beat your wives”???

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Could you please tell me why the Quran tells men to “beat them” meaning their wives? (chapter 4, verse 34)

Answer:

Thank you for asking about Islam. It is our committment to try our best to provide answers to questions to the best of our ability. However, sometimes we come across questions for which we do not have answers. In this case we will refer you to others who may be able to provide you with proper answers.

Please be aware that we as Muslims, must never lie about anything, especially our religion.

Secondly, we do have the original text of the Quran and the preserved teachings of Muhammad, peace be upon him. This enables us to verify exactly what was said, intended and taught by Muhammad, peace be upon him, as being the religion of Islam.

Understanding Allah, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Question:

Please explain clearly about these:

1. Who is Allah?
2. Who is God?
3. Who is Jesus?
4. Can I see all of them?
5. Whether they are all the same, since we say that Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are the same.
6. Suppose I want to pray, how should I start praying?

Answer

Thank you for your questions. I would like to start out by saying that Muslims believe that all prophets of God preached the same simple truth of the One Sovereign God.

Who Is Allah? Who Is God?

Allah is God. The name Allah is the Arabic word for God. More precisely, it is the One Eternal Creator, Lord of the whole universe. It is the same Arabic name for God that is used in the Arabic Bible.

It is pronounced almost the same in other Semitic languages: “Eloha” in Hebrew, and “Allaha” in Aramaic. According to Jesus (peace be upon him), God is One, with no partner whatsoever. I quote the following verses from the Bible:

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and him only.’” (Matthew 4:10)

“Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.” (Mark 12:32)

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.’” (Mark 12:29)

Who Is Jesus?

Jesus is one of a long string of prophets of Allah sent to all nations throughout history, starting from Adam, who received the first guidance from Allah, to the final one, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them all).

Was Islam spread by the sword?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

How can Islam be called the religion of peace when it was spread by the sword?

WAS ISLAM SPREAD BY THE SWORD?

It is a common complaint among some non-Muslims that Islam would not have millions of adherents all over the world, if it had not been spread by the use of force. The following points will make it clear, that far from being spread by the sword, it was the inherent force of truth, reason and logic that was responsible for the rapid spread of Islam.

1. Islam means peace.

Islam comes from the root word ‘salaam’, which means peace. It also means submitting one’s will to Allah (swt). Thus Islam is a religion of peace, which is acquired by submitting one’s will to the will of the Supreme Creator, Allah (swt).

2. Sometimes force has to be used to maintain peace.

Is God Pure, Good, Loving and Fair?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

If so, then where does evil, hatred and injustice come from?

Allah tells us He is Pure, Loving, and absolutely Just in every respect. He says He is the Best of Judges. He also tells us the life we are in here is a test. He has created everything existing and He created whatever happens as well. There is nothing in this existence except what He has created. He also says in the Quran He created evil (although He is not evil). He is using this as one of the many tests for us.

Consider people who do so much evil in the earth and then live to a ripe old age in the splendor and wealth of their ill-gotten gains and die without ever being taken to task for their deeds. Where is the justice or fairness in this? Allah provides a clear answer for us in Quran as to what is in store for these most evil of people:

A brief enjoyment in this world! – and then unto Us will be their return, then We shall make them taste the severest torment because they used to disbelieve [in Allah, belie His Messengers, deny and challenge His proofs, signs, verses, etc.]

[Noble Quran 10:70]

Is the Light of the Prophet(saw) from Allah’s light?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012
Is the Light of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) from Allaahs Light?
Question:Was the light of Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) from the Light of Allaah, or from some other light?
Answer:The light of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) is the light of the Message and the Guidance by which Allaah guides whom He wills from among His creatures. Without doubt, the light of the Message and the light of guidance are from Allaah. Allaah, the Most High says: It is not given to any human being that Allaah should speak to him unless (it be) by Inspiration or from behind a veil or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise. And thus We have sent to you, (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)) Ruhan (an Inspiration and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is faith, but We have made it (this Quran) a light therewith We guide whomsoever of Our worshippers We will. And verily, you (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allaahs religion of Islamic Monotheism). The path of Allaah, to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. Verily, all matters at the end go to Allaah (for decision). [1] But this light is not a part of the Seal of the Awliya, as some of the pantheists claim, for he was flesh, blood and bone… etc He was created from a father and a mother and he had no creation prior to his birth.  (more…)
