RE- barde's( is islam synonmous to violence ??)

Assalamu alaikum mal barde,

As i promised that i will fully reply back on the above caption see below how i personally view and perceived the topic islamically.

First of all the act of violence or inciting terror in the hearts of defenseless civilians, the wholesale destruction of buildings and properties, the bombing and maiming of innocent men, women, and children are all forbidden and detestable acts according to Islam and the Muslims. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the vast majority have nothing to do with the violent events some have associated with Muslims. If an individual Muslim were to commit an act of terrorism, this person would be guilty of violating the laws of Islam.

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

[Qur'an 5:32]

One of the core meanings of Islam is peace. Therefore, the inhumane and horrific events that is happenin now at for instance bagdhad,afganistan,chechenya and the rest of the world which caused innocent casualties - including many Muslim victims - is clearly, without a doubt, completely un-Islamic.

However, it should be noted that the actions of an individual or a small group do not necessarily represent the beliefs of a particular religion, nor is that religion responsible for such actions. Therefore, the media?s labeling of those who are allegedly responsible for these actions as ?Islamic Terrorists? and the linking of such actions to Islam or the Qur?an, is incorrect. Rather, such inhumane actions clearly contradict the teachings of Islam - just as the bombing at Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh and the killings that occurred at Ibrahim Mosque, Hebron by Dr. Baruch Goldstein clearly contradict the teachings of Christianity and Judaism, respectively.

 In reality, Islam not only condemns violence,terrorism and suicide missions, but also prohibits them completely. Thus, many Muslim nations, organizations, and communities all around the world have condemned such actions, hoping never to see its like again.  

It is also unfortunate that harassment of various kinds (including shootings, beatings, stone throwing, robberies, vandalism, death threats and hate language) has occurred against innocent Muslims resident all over the world because of wrong perception or of some group among the muslims. In addition, Islamic places of worship and Muslim owned businesses have now become the targets of some peoples? anger and ignorance, just as the American people had become the targets of the anger and ignorance of the perpetrators of the World Trade Center attacks. Such bigotry and hatred is inhumane and unjustified.

May God, Almighty, the One without any associates or partners in His Divinity, guide us all to the Truth and spread peace throughout the earth. Ameen.

Radina billahi Rabban,
 Wa bil Islami Dinan,
 Wa bi Muhammadin Nabiyya!"
