Does Islam teach terrorism?

Absolutely not, Islam does not teach the killings of innocent people. In the previous post you can see that the 4 verses that Christian quote where killing is mentioned in specific context and only pertains to the Makkan pagans at the time doe not promote killing of innocent people today. There are no other Quran verses that orders any killings of innocent people. This is a stigma that the west has placed on Islam as part of it’s propaganda campaign. The few Muslims that kill innocent people are nothing more than murderers. There is no way for them to justify the murders they commit even though they want to use the rouse of Holey war and Jihad, they are not justified. 

What most people who call Muslims terrorist don’t know is that there are considerably more Christian terrorist than what there are Muslim terrorist but Western media never brand terrorist acts by Christians as terrorism. According to CSI (Centre for Strategic  & International Studies) show that in the US between 1994 and 2020 there were 894 terrorist acts perpetrated by white extremist. 90% of all terrorist acts throughout the word were perpetrated by non-Muslims. Only 10% of all terrorist acts in the world where by Muslims and of that, 4% where Muslim terrorist killing Muslims.  There is also a Quran verse where God tells us that Jews and Christians have been killing innocent people for more than two thousand years and though God has sent messengers to them to warn against this they do not listen. 

Therefore We ordained for the Children of Israel that he who slays a soul unless it be (in punishment) for murder or for spreading mischief on earth shall be as if he had slain all mankind; and he who saves a life shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.54 And indeed again and again did Our Messengers come to them with clear directives; yet many of them continued to commit excesses on earth. Quran (5:32)

Muslims are also victims of terrorist acts and not only by Muslim but by other extremists groups as well which the Western media never mentions. If Muslims are also targets of terrorist attacks does Islam teach the killings of innocent Muslims?  of course not, so why would you think Islam would promote the killing of innocent people when clear the Quran verse above (5:52) tells us that the killing of one innocent person is as if he had slain all of man kind. The Quran further tells us not to take life which God has made sacred.

“… take not life, which God has made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus does He command you, that you may learn wisdom” Quran (6:151)

God also says that even if you have enemies and they incline to peace then we must also incline to peace. 

“And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon Allah. Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.” Quran (8:61). 

Let us look at the meaning of the word terrorism according to Britannica

terrorism, the calculated use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population and thereby to bring about a particular political objective. Terrorism has been practiced by political organizations with both rightist and leftist objectives, by nationalistic and religious groups, by revolutionaries, and even by state institutions such as armies, intelligence services, and police.

In the last two decades we have seen one government who has killed over 11 million innocent Muslim under the rouse of wiping out terrorism only to take over those Muslims countries and steal all their resources but no media has ever labled this countries administration as terrorist. If this was done by a Muslim country they would instantly be called a terrorist country. In China over 1.5 million Muslims has been put in consintration camps and tortured daily to give us Islam, In India Muslims and killed every day because they are Muslim, in Myanmar (Burma) over a million Muslim has been mascaraed because they are Muslim, the list goes on and on….

Islam does not promote, teach or encourage terrorism just as the Christianity and Judaism does not teach it. Terrorism are the evil actions of people and has no place in religion.
