Anonymous asked: “Islam is the religion of peace, you say? Uh... Hezbollah, Hamas, IS (ISIS/ISISL), Boko Haram, Al Quaeda, Al Nusrah, Islamic Jihad, Muslim Brotherhood, should I keep going? I'm sorry, what does "peace" mean again? Because if it means terroristic murderers, then yes Islam is absolutely the religion of peace.”
DO YOU SEE US JUDGING CHRISTIANITY ON THE LORD’S RESISTANCE ARMY, THE KKK, THE CRUSADES, THE RAPING OF CHILDREN BY POPES? No.
Absolutely not. Because we refuse to base the 99% on the actions of 1%.
There are 1.6 billion muslims in the world.
That means at least 1 in every 7 human beings are muslim.
It is also the fastest growing religion in the world. Do you really think that would be the case if it was truly violent?
Pick up the Quran. Consider yourself challenged and actually read what it has to say. And don’t cherrypick verses that refer to fighting. Those have conditions because you know why? This is not a pacifist religion. Defending yourself is a duty. “Killing one human being is as if you’re killing the rest of humanity.And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely” - Quran (5:32)
Thank you and salaam. (may peace be upon you.)
And to all the muslims reading this. Do good. Your Creator commands that you contribute towards peace and justice on earth. Our actions to improve humanity will speak louder than any condemnation of these terrorists.
