    • Are u serious? This guy got the MHO? wow... So u r saying Muslims r terrorists? ... Look in every single religion on this earth u can find terrorists... That does NOT mean that they r representing their religion... That doesn't mean that their religion orders them to, kill innocent people !!! Islam IS. A religion of peace and ISIS DO NOT represent Islam... They r sooooo far of showing how really Islam is... So before u guys say we r Terrorists and Islam is a religion of war and before believing every single stupid thing media says go and ask about Islam in mosques and try to read about it in order to know its real morals... And once again ISIS do not represent real Islam...

  • It is a religion that STRIVES for peace. Is the essence peace? No.
    Even though islam means peace, i dont believe it is the centre of the religion. If a religion can be so transformed by its fanatics then it must be kindled by something in order for peace to disappear entirely.

    Islam im general is loving, but coexistence is something that needs work.

Let one of them change religions and see what happens. Let one familys daughter have a romantic, sexual relationship and see what happens. Don't tell me that I shouldn't think like this.

  • It is in theory but often not in practice like basically every religion ever. Religion often gets twisted and sickos hide behind a facade of religion to do violent and hateful things.

  • i also watched the intelligence squared debate on islam a few months ago

    i will just say that the islamic definition of 'peace' is very different from the layman's definition of 'peace.' the way islam manifest itself when its people form a majority (even a significant minority) is indicative of that.

    The root word "taqiyya" means to protect against or conceal. As you might gather from the quotes above, the principle of al-Taqiyya is the Islamic justification for lying and deceiving. Al-Taqiyya is drawn explicitly from the words of Muhammad, and from the examples he and his successors set.

  • Every muslim will tell you, any one who uses violence like terrorist, isn't a muslim. The koran strictly prohibits murder and views it as a major sin. But unfortunetly both sides have been politicising it and completely ignoring the majority of its practioners, and the majority of its history. They brought into the world some of the greatest intellectual acheivments in math, philosophy, and science and are now just because the past few decades (thanks to the cold war between russia and america devastating there countries) are viewed as backwards, uneducated, and violent.

  • *Islam does not permit terrorism*

    It's clearly mentioned in the Quran, [ whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.] ( Quran 5:32)

    [ 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)

    ------
    Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said "Do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child." (Sahih Muslim #1731)

    He also said "Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years" (sahih bukkari #3166)

    The Prophet Muhammad used to prohibit soldiers from killing women and children ( sahih Bukhari #3015)

    Also, the Prophet Muhammad has forbidden punishment with fire. ( Abu-Dawood #2675)

    He once listed murder as the second of the major sins ( sahih Bukhari #6871)

    and he even warned that on the Day of Judgment, "The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed" ( sahih Muslim #1678)

    Muslims are even encouraged to be kind to animals and are forbidden to hurt them. Once the Prophet Muhammad said: "A woman was punished because she imprisoned a cat until it died. On account of this, she was doomed to Hell. While she imprisoned it, she did not give the cat food or drink, nor did she free it to eat the insects of the earth." ( sahih Muslim #2422)

    He also said that a man gave a very thirsty dog a drink, so God forgave his sins for this action. The Prophet was asked, “Messenger of God, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?” He said: "There is a reward for kindness to every living animal or human" ( sahih Muslim #2244)

    Additionally, while taking the life of an animal for food, Muslims are commanded to do so in a manner that causes the least amount of fright and suffering possible. The Prophet Muhammad said: "When you slaughter an animal, do so in the best way. One should sharpen his knife to reduce the suffering of the animal" ( sahih Muslim #1955)

    *islam allows freedom of belief*
    [ There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion] ( Quran2:256)

  • Islam is a young faith. And a faith with a particularly violent holy book from a particularly unstable and violently expansionist part of the world.

    Unfortunatly this all means that it doesn't have the same culture of "and we quietly ignore this part of the book" which most other western religions have, nore does it embrace nuenced and open discussion of the book as many older religions have... in essence it suffers from the fact it's going through it's Spanish inquisition phase, in a world which is multicultural and largely post-religion... and this post-religion attitude in the west also means there are plenty of potential converts willing to go and give their lives if that's all it takes to have meaning. (which is also why the rates of christian suicide bombing and fundamentalism have increased).

  • Nah. Islam is a region of questionless obedience. A means to have people willingly let themselves be controlled by others. Women by men, men by the community, the community by the church. And the church wants as much power as they can get, which is why they are not secular.

  • It's teachings are of peace and acceptance. Religion is a scapegoat for people to commit their atrocities. The terrorists that are beheading people are not very good at being Muslim.(I hope saying that doesn't get me killed...) People see something they want and know they have to do really shitty things to get it so they say it's for in the name of god when it really isn't for the religion at all.

    • please people do t use the word jihad that's not called jihad the fighting jihad ended in the old days ISIS AREN'T ISLAM

    • @Omar5881 I never said they were... or that this is true Jihad or anything form the real meaning, but that is how it perceived for us in the West often, and a good analogy for the many ignorant who voted Islam as being violent...

    • Ahhh okie them

  • Doesn't matter peace isn't possible people with no peace of mind (or in mind) can't understand peace, will never understand it and for that they loathe it, want to kill it, take John Lennon for example could of made a difference that scared people, now he's dead, George Harrison didn't get killed by did get stabbed by a mental patient who escaped , so weather Islam is peaceful or not doesn't matter because peaceful isn't possible in this world it's unattainable completely anyone who is high profiled and talks about and really means it dies so it's not worth bringing it up if you didn't know most people gave up the concept of peace in the 80s because most people know there's no use wishing for something that is not possible in this day and age maybe in the next century things will be different but I doubt it there'll always be people who are closer to our animal ancestors than to our actual ancestors.

  • Neither agree nor disagree with thwt statement, it just depends on how you interpret the religion. As you can see, there are some that believe that their religion says you have to kill those who don't believe or who do something wrong, so basically they just turned their religion into something violent.
    But there are others that practice their religion in a peaceful way.

    I haven't read the Quran so I can't tell you what I interpret from it, but like I said, it's all up to the person's interpretation.

  • If all the world is all Muslim, (one specific sect of sunni or shiite to be exact) than I guess to a degree it would be considered peaceful. But it wouldn't be tolerant. Neither would it be successful and I doubt it'd last too long. There is almost a guarantee that at some point later on that a terror group would arise from it

    • The real Islam is in the sunni people anything else isn't called Islam and the shiaa came from A VERY BIG STORY TO TELL

    • so islam is only about 1 billion if you take about the sunni. guess which sect has the most terrorists and many muslims will diagree with each sect within

  • According to Quran yeah Islam is religion of peace but today some people making smear campaign and they always exemplify ISIS. Firstly ISIS is just using the name of Islam so stop the reconcile ISIS with Islam. Quran never says u murder innocent people just like what other holy books says.
