Islam is Against Terrorism
Islam, a religion of mercy, does not permit terrorism. In the Quran, God has said:
(God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers) (Quran, 60:8)
“Islam” and other various Islamic terms and concepts are grossly misunderstood in the West. Muslims can hardly find anyone to blame but themselves because (a) they have failed to live by the Islamic tenets in our times, and (b) they have failed to promote understanding of Islam in the West through outreach projects.
What Does Islam Say about Terrorism?
The term “terrorism” does not exist in the Qur’an or the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad. If the terms “terrorist or terrorism” are derived from a verb used in the Qur’an, such as 5:33 describing a “Muslim’s” terrorist acts, it is in condemnation and prescribes most severe punishment. Islam is a religion and a way of life that does not separate politics from religion.
