Those statements are taken from my cbox. In this particular post, I would like to counter all his ignorant allegations.

First Point: Definition of Jihad

The meaning of JIHAD is ‘Striving’ or ‘struggle’. It is used in Islam to refer to a variety of different efforts enjoined upon the believers. Striving to keep God and His Messenger more important than loved ones, wealth and one’s own self is the most basic form of JIHAD prescribed on every Muslim. Doing the righteous deeds prescribed by God is itself a JIHAD. The Prophet was reported to have said,

“The best JIHAD is the perfect hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).” (Bukhari)

On another occasion, someone asked the Prophet if he should join the war against the Quraisy tribe whom threatened the life of Muslims. The Prophet responded by asking him whether his parents were still alive and when he replied that they were, he said, “Make JIHAD by serving them.”

JIHAD is usually translated by the Western media as “holy war” is a greatly misunderstood principle in Islam. There is no term in Arabic which means “holy war”. War is not “holy” in Islam it is.

Now, the truth is revealed!

Second Point: True Terrorist

A terrorist is a person who causes terror. The moment a robber sees a policeman he is terrified. A policeman is a terrorist for the robber. Similarly every Muslim should be a terrorist for the antisocial elements of society, such as thieves, dacoits and rapists. Whenever such an anti-social element sees a Muslim, he should be terrified. It is true that the word ‘terrorist’ is generally used for a person who causes terror among the common people. But a true Muslim should only be a terrorist to selective people i.e. antisocial elements, and not to the common innocent people. In fact a Muslim should be a source of peace for innocent people.

The question is who’s actually causing terror to humankind? Muslim? Then how many countries that Muslim has destroyed? How many lives lost in the hand of Muslim? And most importantly, where is the root of evil actually? History tells everything.

You know who’s actually being destroyed, killed, slaughtered and raped! It’s very obvious! It’s Muslim!

Each and every human being in this world is not in favour of maintaining peace and harmony. There are many, who would disrupt it for their own vested interests. Sometimes force has to be used to maintain peace. It is precisely for this reason that we have the police who use force against criminals and antisocial elements to maintain peace in the country. Islam promotes peace. At the same time, Islam exhorts it followers to fight where there is oppression. The fight against oppression may, at times, require the use of force. In Islam force can only be used to promote peace and justice.

See what’s happening in Palestine? What’s wrong of defending our own land that has been hijacked by Zionist? While you people allow them to kill unarmed children, women and old people of Palestine. And of course you know that there is no Israeli that can be defined as ‘Civilian’ since all of them including school children are allowed to carry weapon. Yet, you see Muslim as terrorist! How ignorant you are.

Third Point: Islam is a religion of peace

Islam comes from the root word ‘salaam’, which means peace. It also means submitting one’s will to Allah (swt). Thus Islam is a religion of peace, which is acquired by submitting one’s will to the will of the Supreme Creator, Allah (swt).

Muslims ruled Spain for about 800 years. The Muslims in Spain never used the sword to force the people to convert. Later the Christian Crusaders came to Spain and wiped out the Muslims. There was not a single Muslim in Spain who could openly give the adhan, that is the call for prayers.

Muslims were the lords of Arabia for 1400 years. For a few years the British ruled, and for a few years the French ruled. Overall, the Muslims ruled Arabia for 1400 years. Yet today, there are 14 million Arabs who are Coptic Christians i.e. Christians since generations. If the Muslims are terrorist, there would not have been a single Arab who would have remained a Christian.

The Muslims ruled India for about a thousand years. If they wanted, they had the power of converting each and every non-Muslim of India to Islam. Today more than 80% of the population of India are non-Muslims. All these non-Muslim Indians are bearing witness today that Islam was not a religion of terror.

“Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error” [Al-Qur’an 2:256]

Fourth Point: Don’t judge a car by its driver

If you want to judge how good is the latest model of the “Mercedes” car and a person who does not know how to drive sits at the steering wheel and bangs up the car, who will you blame? The car or the driver? But naturally, the driver. To analyze how good the car is, a person should not look at the driver but see the ability and features of the car. How fast is it, what is its average fuel consumption, what are the safety measures, etc. Even if I agree for the sake of argument that the Muslims are bad, we can’t judge Islam by its followers? If you want to judge how good Islam is then judge it according to its authentic sources, i.e. the Glorious Qur’an and the Sahih Hadith. USA and UK are both Christian-dominated countries. Is it fair for me to say Christian is the religion of terror for what they have done to Iraq, Afghanistan and also Palestine?

If you practically want to check how good a car is put an expert driver behind the steering wheel. Similarly the best and the most exemplary follower of Islam by whom you can check how good Islam is, is the last and final messenger of God, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Besides Muslims, there are several honest and unbiased non-Muslim historians who have acclaimed that prophet Muhammad was the best human being. According to Michael H. Hart who wrote the book, ‘The Hundred Most Influential Men in History’, the topmost position, i.e. the number one position goes to the beloved prophet of Islam, Muhammad (pbuh). There are several such examples of non-Muslims paying great tributes to the prophet, like Thomas Carlyle, La-Martine, etc.


Now, Let us see who’s telling a lie. My advice is read and understands first before you are ready to critics anything about Islam teaching. Because you won’t find any flaws in this perfect religion of God which comes from the undisputable word of God which is Al-Quran and preached by Prophet Muhammad, the last messenger of Allah.

Well, it’s not ended here. There’s more to come. Hope you can put off your ego to read this. You can also refer to this website if you still don't believe me. Wallahu’alam.
