Marathon bombings contradict teachings of Islam

Source: muslimwriters.org | Duluth News Tribune

One year removed from the Boston Marathon bombings, people raise eyebrows about Muslims’ loyalty to the United States or Islam’s viewpoint on terrorism. The bombings had no relationship with the beautiful teachings of Islam. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the bombings.

Quran_1-300x225

The holy Quran condemns all forms of cruelty, violence or extremist terrorism, as is evident by the following verse:

Whosoever killed a person — unless it be for killing a person or for creating disorder in the land — it shall be as if he had killed all mankind.”

A person who kills a person unfairly or who kills someone who had neither rebelled nor became a source of violating peace among the people nor created disorder in the land, it is as if he has killed the whole of mankind. In other words, to kill a person without any cause is, according to God, like the murder of the entire human race. It is obvious from this verse how big a sin it is to take the life of another person without reason.

Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught that the “love for one’s nation is a part of faith.” Thus, sincere patriotism is a requirement in Islam. To truly love God, Islam requires a person to love his nation. It is evident that love for one’s country has been made a part of Islam; Muslims must strive to reach the highest standards of loyalty to their chosen country because that is a means of reaching God and becoming close to him.

I strongly decry the acts of terrorism committed at last year’s Boston Marathon, and those acts in no way should be associated with Islam. On the contrary, I myself reflect… see more at muslimwriters.org

    ALL VIOLENT HADITS SHOULD BE ABROGATED, OTHER WISE…

    Islamic teaching is peaceful teaching and mercy to all mankind, because the teaching came from God.

    Why do extremist Muslim commit violent and kill innocent people? because they follow idols ( Muslim, Bukhari, Osma bin Laden etc )who teaching them to kill people who do follow them.

    The idols have another book beside Holy Quran,namely the book of Hadits Muslim & Bukhari.

    Idols Muslim and Bukhari incited violence and killing such as;

    1. HERESY AND APOSTASY
    Anyone of you who saw heresy, apostasy, let is changing with your HANDS (kill), if not able, let the verbal, if not able to let the heart. However, such is weak as weak faith.HR.Muslim
    2. HOMOSEXUAL
    Prophet said, “If you have people who do act like the people of Lut (liwath) then kill the perpetrators.” (Narrated by Abu Daud, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah).
    3. HONOR KILLING
    Anyone who changes his religion (out of Islam, apostasy) then kill. Wherever you meet them, then kill them. Because real people are killed they will get a reward at the Judgment Day “Bukhari.
    When the end times will appear young people and bad attitude. They said word by using the word of GOD , when they had come out of Islam as an arrow from his bow slipping . Wherever you meet them , then kill them . Because real people are killed they will get a reward on the resurrection day ” HR Bukhari
    ” If two people inducted Caliph , then kill the last of the leader, HR Muslim.

    Those above Hadits are against of Al Quran, or God’s law.

    Allah and Prophet Muhammad (saw) commanded his followers as follow;

    Whosoever killed a person — unless it be for killing a person or for creating disorder in the land — it shall be as if he had killed all mankind.”QS 5:32.

    but those who plot evils, theirs will be severe torment. And the plotting of such will perish. QS 35;10.

    I strongly believe that as long as government do not abrogate the all violent Hadits from the book of Hadits, violence and killing innocent people will never stop, because extremist Muslim believe that they follow the teaching of Islam. Verily, they follow idols or Satan.

    Islamic teaching never have such violent verses from God, except to defend his self from killing of enemy.

    May Allah guide all Muslim Scholars to the truth of Islam. Ameen

    All love

  2. @ dear Salma Javid Khan…Quota “I strongly decry the acts of terrorism committed at last year’s Boston Marathon, and those acts in no way should be associated with Islam.quota.

    We always claim that such violent act is not associated with Islam.

    Can you explains these some verses from Al Quran, which Extremist Musli follow these Islamic commandment from Al Quran as follow;

    I believe that many young Muslims are misguided and misunderstand by False Scholars the true meaning of God’s verses;

    1. Then kill the Mushrikûn wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush.QS 9;5

    2. Fight against those who believe not in Allâh, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Extremist Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. QS 9;29.

    3…O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn QS 9;123.

    4….O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians ( extremist ) as Auliyâ’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Auliyâ’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Auliyâ’), then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). QS 5:51.

    5….Humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allâh, and never fear of the blame of the blamers. QS 5;54.

    7….And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world QS 8;39.

    8…So enjoy what you have gotten of booty in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of Allâh. Certainly, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. QS. 8;69.

    9….Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allâh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tâghût (Satan,).[] So fight you against the friends of Shaitân QS 4;76

    10…They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allâh (to Muhammad SAW). But if they turn back (from Islâm), take (hold of) them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them. QS 4;89.

    I post 10 verses from Al Quran.

    Extremist non Islam accuse that those verses came from Satan.

    Extremist Muslim follow those verses to kill infidel.

    How do you explain to Extremist non Islam and extremist Muslim ??

    Hopefull, we can get the proper answers from you all.Thanks

    All love

  3. Should “Hadith” (islamic) quote “be abrogated” unquote

    OR

    all the Sayings and Traditions of “All earlier Prophets” as well?

  4. Are the Quranic and Biblical Verses “ALLOWED” to be understood in their proper contexts or should NECESSARILY be taken without any relevance?

    What are you trying to preach ?

  5. Please do not delete my respond. If you love for all, none hatred for all, you should accept the different idea, thought, interpretation of Islam, and race. Right? May Allah bless you, Ameen

    @ dear Shahid Pervaiz….

    As we know that The book of Hadits Muslim &Bukhari was created by men. Do you agree that?

    Since man create a book, there is no guarantee all Hadits will be true, Saheeh. Do you agree that?

    Allah and Prophet Muhammad (saw) never justify the book of Hadits Muslim and Bukhari etc. Do you agree that?

    Since Allah never asked Muslims to believe, why Muslim should believe it? do you agree that?

    The book of Hadits Muslim and Bukhari contains ;

    1. The true Hadits, not against Al Quran.

    2. The violent Hadits or false Hadits, these hadits are against Al quran,

    3. The ancient Arab tradition Hadits. These hadits are not Syariah Islam, but Arab tradition. Arab people have to follows them if they want to.
    THese hadits will bring people to backward, the dark-age.

    Such as;
    women haram to show her skin, from face to the toe.
    or women have to wear burqa.
    women haram to drive a car
    women haram to go out side
    women haram to shake hand with a man
    Women haram to get education

    man have to have along beard
    man have to have 4 wives
    Haram to have a dog

    There are thousands ancient Arab tradition Hadits in the book of Hadits.

    REGARDING believe in Bible

    Allah and prophet Muhammad(saw) commanded his followers to believe all prophets and all His books.

    Therefore, Muslim have to believe in Bible.
    Believe Bible, it does not mean at all, if we do not follow Allah’s laws was written in Bible.

    It will a big mistake, if Muslim do not obey Allah and Prophet’ s commandment. Right.
    Do you agree that?

    This Allah commandment;

    The true believer.
    Believing without practicing the law has no meaning, no benefits at all.
    If we believe in God, we have to follow His laws
    If we believe all prophets, we have to follow his teaching.
    If we believe all His books, we have to read and follow what is written in His book.

    Allah said to Prophet Muhammad (saw) as a example;
    The desert Arabs, say “We believe.” Say “Ye have no faith; but ye (only) say `We have submitted our wills to Allah.’ for not yet has Faith entered your hearts. But if ye obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not belittle aught oft your deeds: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.” (14) Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and have never since doubted but have striven with their belongings and their persons in the Cause of Allah: Such are the sincere ones. QS 49:14

    Alif. Lam. Mim . 1 (1) Allah: There is no god but He, the Alive, the All-Sustaining. (2) He has revealed to you the Book with the truth, confirming what has been before it, and has sent down the Torah and the Injil (3) Earlier to give guidance to mankind, and has sent down the Furqan (the book of Zabur). Surely, those who have rejected the verses of Allah, for them there is severe punishment. Allah is Mighty, the Lord of Retribution.QS 3:1-4.

    O ye who believe! Believe —-in Allah— and his Messenger, —and the scripture which He hath sent to —His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him). And who denieth Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far, far astray. QS 4: 136.

    Dear Shahid Pervaiz

    Do you dare to reject Allah and Prophet’s commandment above? Please ponder them.

    With all my love.
    What ever we do, be done with love of God (Cor.16:13).
    If we love each other, we can achieve a big works for mankind
    but if we hate each other, will be destroyed completely, because hate stir up trouble and conflict.
    So let we love each other, Allah will bless us all

  6. Sorry – Do not understand what point you try to make ?

    One time you reject Hadith, second time you accept them?

    Why do you write in such a confusing manner?

  7. QUOTE

    “If you love for all, none hatred for all”

    Should your “copying skills” be questioned or your “comprehension” ?

    Were you trying to say; LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR NONE”

  8. @ Dear alatif, your post of 19 April and the ten verses shown below need to be explained to you and all others who may be in doubt. Please see your posted verses and the brief explanation.
    ————————
    @alatif: We always claim that such violent act is not associated with Islam.

    Can you explains these some verses from Al Quran, which Extremist Muslim follow these Islamic commandment from Al Quran as follow;

    I believe that many young Muslims are misguided and misunderstand by False Scholars the true meaning of God’s verses;

    1. Then kill the Mushrikûn wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush.QS 9;5
    [This verse is soon after the liberation of Makkah. The Mushrikin were guilty of genocide against Muslims. The polytheists and the Unitarians could not be allowed to live together. Even then, a good period of FOUR months was given to the Mushrikin (VERSE 9:2/3) to believe or leave the land and not be seen ever after in the holy land. There was no order to kill them at the time of victory over the Makkans.]
    —————————————-
    2. Fight against those who believe not in Allâh, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Extremist Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. QS 9;29.
    [This verse is about the war and the war zone only. Every one has to align to some side during war and it was the best arrangement and quite peaceful, GENTLE SOLUTION. Nobody need to fear about it now unless a similar situation (wars) arise again.]
    ————————————-
    3…O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn QS 9;123.
    [The word used is Kafir. i.e. fight against the Kafireen. Kafir is not a simple peaceful disbeliever. He/she is a fanatic, hostile disbeliever as every one knows the history of Makkan disbelievers, attacking Madinah every year, ready to kill all Muslims…. The simplistic translations of the quran need to be amended soon about such words as Kafirs. It should not be translated as disbeliever. That gives very wrong meaning and a cue to present day non-Muslims. Every non-believer is not Kafir. Only enemy type disbeliever (like Abu Jehl) is Kafir. Teaching of the Quran is very clear about the meaning and the abode of the Kafireen.]
    ——————————-

    4….O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians ( extremist ) as Auliyâ’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Auliyâ’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Auliyâ’), then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). QS 5:51.
    [The best translation of Aulia is “Guardian or protector”. It should never be translated as friend. Otherwise, non Muslims will say that Muslims are ordered not to befriend the people of the book. That conveys wrong meaning. Wali is not a friend. The father of the bride, who is her wali, is not her friend. He is guardian.
    The correct word for friend in Arabic is “Khaleel”. Translations should be amended forthwith.]
    —————————————-
    5….Humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allâh, and never fear of the blame of the blamers. QS 5;54.
    [Again see the word Kafir in the verse. alatif has not presented the whole verse. It is describing a principle stand for the believers against enemies]
    —————————————

    7….And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world QS 8;39.
    [It is not a good translation of the word Fitnah. Fitnah is not mere disbelief. It describes persecution. Verse says” And fight them until there is no persecution in the matters of faith..”. It means fight them until No COMPULSION IN RELIGION IS ESTABLISHED.]
    —————————————–
    8…So enjoy what you have gotten of booty in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of Allâh. Certainly, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. QS. 8;69.
    [I cannot understand why alatif (OR some one else) has found something wrong with this verse. Everyone should read verses 65 onward to 69/70 to understand that there is nothing bad in this verse too. It is far better than what the victors do to the defeated people in present times.]
    ————————————–
    9….Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allâh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tâghût (Satan,).[] So fight you against the friends of Shaitân QS 4;76
    [Again it is not understood why alatif is concerned about this very good verse. It is telling Muslims to fight against the supporters of Al-Shaitan (i.e. the dare-devil, who is manifest enemy of all mankind.)]
    —————————-
    10…They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allâh (to Muhammad SAW). But if they turn back (from Islâm), take (hold of) them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them. QS 4;89.
    [This verse is also about the Kafireen, i.e. the enemies and fanatic disbelievers. Why should true Muslims befriend the enemies? There is nothing objectionable in this verse.]
    ——————————

    I post 10 verses from Al Quran.
    [I have tried to explain the wisdom in those 10 (actually 9) verses. There is nothing bad in those verses and nothing against peaceful people of any faith. A person may be a Muslim, or a Jew or a Christian, or a Hindu or a person of any faith, as long as he is peaceful (doing good deeds means to be peaceful), there is no harm to him from Islam and he will not have any fear nor will he be sorry.
    That is the teaching of Islam, mentioned in Quran (verse 2:62/63). Muslims are included in that verse 2:62/63 in the first place.
    Dear alatif, you are right. Many young Muslims misunderstand these verses and the extremists use them for violence. But the Promised Masiha a.s. who brought the new knowledge, that is because he was also Al-Mahdi (the guided One), we need to adopt these new meanings and spread them in the world. There is no other way except to spread guidance in a very loving and peaceful manner.]Love all, Wassalam.

  9. The 10 verses are a copy of a post in the Catholic forum that I replied about 5 years ago. In that post also, Q.6 was missing.
    The material was the same as posted by alatif presentation. History seems to be repeating….

  10. Please do not delete my respond to Ghulam Sarwar.

    .

    @ Ghulam Sarwar..first of all, I appreciate your respond and you have tried to find the truth, but unfortunately, your responds are not quite right, because your explanation, not base on Al Quran, but base on the Islamic book of History. As you know that the Historical book of Islam created by men, as well as the book of Hadits. Do you agree?

    Let me ask more question regarding your respond. if you do not mind. We agree to seek the truth.Right?

    Your respond is not right. By your explanation.
    .
    i.e, Do you agree Taliban in Pakistan, Jihadits in Syria are in war now, and have been fighting with Infidel (They accuse Govern of Pakistan, Syria are infidel), they collect “Jizyah” from non Islam.
    .
    In other words, a group of extremist Muslim who is fighting every where in this world, they can apply this rule of Allah to non Islam and collect special Tax or “Jizyah”.

    If you agree, It seems to me that you treat non Muslim unfairly. Am I wrong?
    .
    Whereas prophet Muhammad (saw) treated all people fairly and kindly. Look at QS 49 ; 9. QS 4:135 QS 60:8
    .

    Dear Ghulam Sarwar..
    If your explanation base on historical book, no one will buy it. Because the book of History create by man, not by Allah. Author can misguide people easily.

    That is why Allah commanded His people do not believe a man, because a man can make mistake, and misguide you.Believe only in God alone (al Quran) the best your protector, / Guidance,after prophet Muhammad died 1400 year ago.

    Hopefully, you can answer my concern.Thanks
    .
    With all my love.
    What ever we do, be done with love of God (Cor.16:13).
    If we love each other, we can achieve a big works for mankind
    but if hate each other, will be destroyed completely
    so let we love each other, Allah will bless us all
