Islam - A Religion of Terror




A bomb goes off
in a marketplace in Jerusalem. A suicide bomber launches himself into a
bus full of women and children in Tel Aviv. Foreign tourists get
massacred at a holiday resort in Luxor, Egypt. Villages upon villages
get annihilated in Algeria. The list of events worldwide which have
come to symbolise the 'Islamic terror' are endless. From the times in
the 70's and 80's when Pan Am and TWA aeroplanes would be highjacked,
to the mid 80's in war torn Lebanon where Americans and Europeans would
be held as hostages for years; all such incidents have come to be
identified with the religion of Islam. Such incidents from past and
present have undoubtedly affected Muslims worldwide and more so in the
West. Any Muslim, who wants to practice his/her religion and expresses
the pious desire to live under the banner of Islam, is labelled a
fundamentalist or extremist. Any Muslim man who walks down a busy
street in London or Paris (and Paris moreso) with a beard and a scarf
on his head, is looked upon as being a terrorist who's probably got an
AK47 stashed somewhere on his person. Muslim women who are veiled can't
go anywhere in the Western world without being taunted as being
oppressed or being mad (for covering up). However, are such beliefs and
opinions about Islam really justified?


Exploring the myth

One of the many
short comings which has arisen in the West, is judging Islam by the
conduct of a minority of its people. By doing this, segments of Western
society have deliberately played off the desperate actions of many
Muslims, and have given it the name of Islam. Such behaviour is clearly
not objective and seeks to distort the reality of Islam. For if such a
thing was done Judge a religion by the conduct of its people) then we
too could say that all Christianity is about is child molesting and
homosexuality
whilst Hinduism was all about looting and breaking up mosques .
Generalising in such a manner is not seen as being objective, yet we
find that the Western world is foremost in propagating this outlook on
Islam. So what is the reality of Islam? How does one dispel the myths
which have been created and spread so viciously? The only way to
examine Islam is to simply examine its belief system. Look at its
sources, the Qur'an and Sunna, and see what they have to say. This is
the way to find the truth about what Islam says about terror, terrorism
and terrorists. One who is sincerely searching for the truth, will do
it no other way. The very name Islam comes from the Arabic root word
'salama' which means peace. Islam is a religion which is based upon
achieving peace through the submission to the will of Allah. Thus, by
this very simple linguistic definition, one can ascertain as to what
the nature of this religion is. If such a religion is based on the
notion of peace, then how is it that so many acts done by its adherents
are contrary to peace? The answer is simple. Such actions, if not
sanctioned by the religion, have no place with it. They are not Islamic
and should not be thought of as Islamic.


Jihad

The word jihad
sends shivers down the spines of many Westerners. They readily equate
this term with violence and oppression. However, it must be said that
the meaning of jihad, as a 'holy war', is something which is totally
foreign and not from Islam. If anything, such a de******ion belongs
more so to Christianity and its adherents. It was terms like this which
were used to justify the slaughter and pillage of towns and cities
during the crusades by the Christians. By simply looking into the
sources of Islam, one is able to know that the true meaning of jihad is
to strive/make effort in the way of Allah. Thus striving in the way of
Allah can be both peaceful and physical. The Prophet Muhammed (saws)
said:

"The best jihad is (by) the one who strives against his own self for Allah, The Mighty and Majestic"
In the Qur'an, Allah also says:
"So obey not the disbelievers, but make a great jihad (effort) against them (by preaching) with it (the Qur'an)"
(Surah Al-Furqan 25:52)

فَلَا تُطِعِ الْكَافِرِينَ وَجَاهِدْهُم بِهِ جِهَادًا كَبِيرًا (52)


By controlling
and fighting against ones desires, the Muslims can then also physically
exert themselves in the path of Allah. It is this physical or combative
jihad which receives so much criticism. Because of the sheer ignorance
of this type of jihad Islam is regarded as terror, and Muslims are
regarded as terrorists. However, the very purpose of this physical
jihad is to raise the word of Allah uppermost. By doing this, it
liberates and emancipates all those who are crying out for freedom all
over the world. If the likes of the pacifists of this world had their
way, then the world would indeed be full of anarchy and mischief. The
combative jihad seeks to correct this as Allah says in the Qur'an:

"And if Allah
did not check one set of people by means of another, the Earth would be
full of mischief. But Allah is full of bounty to the worlds"

(Surah Al-Baqarah 2:251)

فَهَزَمُوهُم
بِإِذْنِ اللّهِ وَقَتَلَ دَاوُدُ جَالُوتَ وَآتَاهُ اللّهُ الْمُلْكَ
وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَعَلَّمَهُ مِمَّا يَشَاء وَلَوْلاَ دَفْعُ اللّهِ
النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَّفَسَدَتِ الأَرْضُ وَلَكِنَّ اللّهَ ذُو
فَضْلٍ عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ (251)

Such would be the corruption on this Earth if there had never been a combative jihad that Allah says:
"For had it
not been that Allah checks one set of people by means of another,
monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of
Allah is mentioned much, would surely have been pulled down. Indeed
Allah will help those who help His (cause). Truly Allah is All strong,
All mighty"

(Surah Al-Hajj 22:40)
الَّذِينَ
أُخْرِجُوا مِن دِيَارِهِمْ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلَّا أَن يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا
اللَّهُ وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ
لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا
اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ إِنَّ
اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ (40)




This combative
jihad being both defensive and offensive, is something which is
commanded by Allah upon the Muslims. Through this command the oppressed
and weak are rescued from the tyranny of the world:


"And
what is the matter with you that you do not fight in the cause of Allah
and for those weak, ill treated and oppressed among men, women and
children whose only 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"

(Surah An-Nisa 4:75)

وَمَا
لَكُمْ لاَ تُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ
الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاء وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا
أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَل
لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ وَلِيًّا وَاجْعَل لَّنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ نَصِيرًا (75)




Anyone who knows
the early history of Islam, will know that all those nations and
empires which came under the fold of Islam were indeed previously
oppressed. When the companions of the Prophet Muhammed (saws) went out
for the offensive jihad against the Egyptians, the Persians and the
Romans, we find that the people did not resist against them at all.
Rather, they accepted Islam on such a scale, that it is inconceivable
that the jihad of Islam could be anything other then a liberation for
these people; a liberation from centuries of tyranny. In fact, with the
Byzantine Egyptians and the people of Spain, the Muslims were even
beckoned to come and liberate these lands from the oppression of their
kings. This is the glorious track record of the Muslim jihad Compare
this with the brutal track record of warfare in the Western world over
the centuries. From the crusades against the Muslims to the days of onial
warfare, the Western world has killed, destroyed and plundered
everything which has come in its way. Even today this merciless killing
goes on by the Western nations. While claiming to be about world peace
and security, Western nations are ready to bomb innocent civilians at
the drop of a hat. The classic example of this is the recent bombings
of Sudan and Afghanistan. Whilst claiming that Sudan and Afghanistan
were havens for Islamic terrorists, the bombings of these two nations
could not have come at a better time for the American president Bill
Clinton. The destruction of innocent lives which were a result of these
bombings clearly seem to have been an attempt by Clinton to avert
attention away from his sexual misdemeanours;
something
which he so often gets caught up in. Without doubt this was the reason
for such terror from the American military upon innocent people. This
is the same American military which claims to enter the worlds trouble
spots under the guise of being peace keepers. But

"… when it is
said to them; 'Make not mischief on the Earth', they say; 'We are only
peace makers'. Indeed they are the ones who make mischief, but they
perceive it not"

(Surah Al-Baqarah 2:11-12)

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لاَ تُفْسِدُواْ فِي الأَرْضِ قَالُواْ إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ (11)
أَلا إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ الْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَكِن لاَّ يَشْعُرُونَ (12)

The hypocrisy of the West is indeed astounding.

By looking at the
rules and regulations of this combative jihad it will be clear to any
sincere person that this is indeed the religion of truth. When fighting
an unjust enemy, no matter how unjust they are, it is forbidden by
Islam that their retreating forces are mutilated, tortured or
slaughtered. The treacherous violation of treaties and carrying out
assassinations after a cease fire, are also prohibited. Allah says in
the Qur'an:


"And fight in the way of Allah those who fight you. But do not transgress the limits. Truly Allah loves not the transgressors"
(Surah Al-Baqarah 2:190)

وَقَاتِلُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلاَ تَعْتَدُواْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُحِبِّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ (190)

Not transgressing
the limits means not to kill women and children, for the Messenger of
Allah (saws) "forbade the killing of women and children"
.
Not transgressing the limits means that the elderly, the sick, monks,
worshippers and hired labourers are not attacked. Not transgressing the
limits means not killing animals wantonly, burning crops and
vegetation, polluting waters and destroying homes, monasteries,
churches and synagogues:

"Allah does
not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not
against you on account of religion, nor drove you out of your homes.
Indeed, Allah loves those who deal with equity"

(Surah Al-Mumtahinah 60:8)

لَا
يَنْهَاكُمُ اللَّهُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ
وَلَمْ يُخْرِجُوكُم مِّن دِيَارِكُمْ أَن تَبَرُّوهُمْ وَتُقْسِطُوا
إِلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ (8)



After reading
such passages from the Qur'an and knowing about what Islam commands and
prohibits in jihad, the rules of warfare are given a new meaning; a
meaning of justice. How sad it is then, that whilst Islam is condemned
for striking terror into the hearts of the people, the likes of the
Serbs, the Indian army in Kashmir and the Israeli soldiers in Palestine
are left untarnished for the atrocities they have committed in the name
of warfare.


So what about
suicide bombing, is this too a part of jihad in Allah's path? From what
has already been stated above, it can be deduced that this is not from
the religion. However, unfortunately many Muslims have taken suicide
bombing as being a virtuous act by which one receives reward. This
could not be further from the truth. The Prophet (saws) said: "Those
who go to extremes are destroyed"
.
Suicide bombing is undoubtedly an extremity which has reached the ranks
of the Muslims. In the rules of warfare, we find no sanction for such
an act from the behaviour and words of the Prophet Muhammed (saws) and
his companions. Unfortunately, today (some misguided) Muslims believe
that such acts are paving the way for an Islamic revival and a return
to the rule of Islam's glorious law. However, we fail to bear in mind
that the Prophet (saws) said:

"Do not be delighted by the action of anyone, until you see how he ends up" ]
So, for example what is the end of
a suicide bomber in Palestine?, a leg here, an arm there. Massive
retaliation by the Israeli's in the West Bank and Gaza. More Muslims
killed and persecuted. How can we be delighted with such an end? What
really hammers the final nail in the coffin of this act, is that it is
suicide; something which is clearly forbidden in Islam. The Messenger
of Allah (saws) said:

"He who kills himself with anything, Allah will torment him with that in the fire of Hell" ]
Some are under the misconception
that by killing oneself for an Islamic cause, one commits an act which
deserves Paradise. Once when a man killed himself, the Prophet (saws)
said: "He is a dweller of the Fire". When the people were surprised at this, the Prophet (saws) said:

"A person
performs the deeds which to the people appears to be the deeds
befitting the dweller of Paradise, but he is in fact one of the
dwellers of the Fire"
]

The taking of ones life which Allah
has given as a trust to the human, is a great sin. Likewise the taking
of other lives (which is so often the case with suicide bombing) is
also forbidden, as human life is indeed precious:

"...If anyone
killed a person not in retaliation for murder or to spread mischief in
the land, it would be as if he killed the whole of mankind. And
(likewise) if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the whole
of mankind"

(Surah Al-Maaida 5:32)

مِنْ
أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ
نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ
النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ
جَمِيعًا وَلَقَدْ جَاء تْهُمْ رُسُلُنَا بِالبَيِّنَاتِ ثُمَّ إِنَّ
كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فِي الأَرْضِ لَمُسْرِفُونَ (32)



Thus, all other
types of extremities such as hostage taking, hijacking and planting
bombs in public places, are clearly forbidden in Islam.


The Media

By going through
the teachings of Islam, it is clear that such a religion has only come
to benefit mankind - not to destroy it. So why is there so much hatred
for this noble religion in the West? The answer is simple, the media.
It is the Jewish influenced media of the West which has portrayed Islam
to be something that it is not. During the 70's and 80's when the PLO
(Palestine Liberation Organisation) were carrying out daring highjacks
on the worlds airways, the media in the West portrayed it as being
Islamic. When the Shi'ite suicide bombers of the 80's were causing so
much havoc in the Lebanon and in the Gulf region, the media in the West
portrayed it as a part of Islam. However, it is known by the heads of
the media that the likes of the PLO were not an Islamic organisation,
and that according to Islam, Shi'ites are outside the fold of Islam
.
Yet such facts are never portrayed by a media which seeks to cover the
truth of this religion. A number of years ago, when the Oklahoma City
bomb went off, a headline in one of the newspapers, 'Today'
,
summed up this attitude. With a picture of a fire fighter holding a
dead child in his arms, the headline read: "In The Name of Islam" Time
has of course proven that this bigoted assumption was incorrect, as
Timothy McVeigh, a right wing radical now faces the death penalty for
the crime
. Likewise the bombs which went off in
the Paris metro in 1995, were also blamed on Muslim fanatics. It has
now emerged that the Algerian secret service who having routinely
bribed many European journalists and MPs, were actually behind it. The
desire to throw a veil over Islam is immense by these people:

"They intend
to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will
complete His light even though the disbelievers hate (it)"

(Surah As-Saff 61:8)

يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِؤُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ (8)

Whilst trying to
destroy Islam through this instrument of the media, the Jews clearly
try to portray an image of themselves as being the oppressed people.
Every year, we are reminded as to how many Jews perished under the
Nazis in World War II. We are made to feel sorry for these same people
who have gone on to commit so many crimes upon the Palestinian people.
Some may say that this is a racist and biased viewpoint. But we say; If
this media was not run and orchestrated by the Jews and was truly
neutral, then why are Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir, two former
Israeli prime ministers, not held aloft as being terrorists? Anyone who
knows about the history of the Palestinian ocation
will tell you that these two men were members of the Stern Gang and
Irgun, two notorious Jewish terror groups who killed many innocent
people
. If this media was truly impartial, then why does it not tell about the extent of the Israeli bombardment and illegal ocation of Southern Lebanon and its people? And
if this media really had nothing against the religion of Allah, then
why does it not inform the people that every day hundreds are entering
the religion of Islam? Such things will never be highlighted in the
Western media, simply because to do so would be against their very
interests.


With such immense
pressure against it, it is indeed a blessing from Allah that Islam goes
from strength to strength. It continues to grow faster then any other
religion in the Western world, conquering the hearts and minds of
thousands. All this should not even surprise us though, for Allah has
promised us that this religion will prevail:

"It is He who
has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, so
that He may make it victorious over all other religions, even though
the disbelievers detest it"

(Surah As-Saff 61:9)


هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ (9)


It is a must that
humanity comes towards the religion of Islam. Without it, we will
continue to slip down the road of inequity and darkness. With it we can
establish a society of justice and peace. Religion of terror? ... no.
The way forward? ... yes.

"There is no
compulsion in religion. The right path has indeed become distinct from
the wrong. So whoever rejects false worship and believes in Allah, then
he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And
Allah is All Hearing, All Knowing"

(Surah Al-Baqarah 2:256)


لاَ إِكْرَاهَ فِي
الدِّينِ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ الرُّشْدُ مِنَ الْغَيِّ فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ
بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِن بِاللّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ
الْوُثْقَىَ لاَ انفِصَامَ لَهَا وَاللّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ (256)




Footnotes
1 By using the many cases of child abuse and homosexuality by priests, Such a generalisation about Christianity could be made
2 By using the incident of the
destruction of the Babri mosque in Ayodya, India in December 1992 by
Hindu zealots, such generalisations could be made about Hinduism

3 Authentic - Reported by At-Tabaranee
4 Years of sexual liaison with a
White House aide, Monica Lewinski, has been proved against Mr Clinton.
Since this time, a number of other women have also claimed that they
have had affairs with the president. And this is the same man who
propagates family values and to whom millions look up to!

10 The beliefs which are contained
in the books of the Shi'ites places them outside of the fold of Islam
generally. However, upon the individual Shi'ite, the proofs need to be
established before one can say that he or she is a disbeliever

11 This newspaper no longer exists
12 It is strange indeed that whilst
the Western media criticises Islamic law for being barbaric and harsh,
not a word is said about the fact that McVeigh too will be executed
just as someone would in an Islamic state

13 These two groups killed Arabs,
Jews and the British. They are accredited with the massacre at the
village of Deir Yassin, in which many innocent people were butchered

14 Despite the fact that the UN has even made a resolution against Israel for this illegal ocation, no 'democratic peace loving nation' (like the USA!!) has bothered to implement it
