Muslims against terrorism.

“If anyone harms (others), God will harm him, and if anyone shows hostility to others, God will show hostility to him.” - Sunan of Abu-Dawood, Hadith 1625.

In Islam, Muslims are not allowed to kill innocent human beings. They are only allowed to fight back, those who fight them first. And I repeat fight back, those who fight them first.

It can be summarized like this:

  • No killing of women, children or innocents - these might include hermits, monks or other religious leaders who were noncombatants;
  • No wanton killing of livestock or other animals;
  • No burning or destruction of trees and orchards; and
  • No destruction of wells.

Please forget about all the misconceptions you have about Islam. Ask an actual muslim about Islam instead of taking your knowledge from Islamophobic sources. If you really want to know how a muslim is supposed to lead a war, then read the free PDF file called “Islamic rulings on warfare”. You’ll understand everything much better.
Terrorism, hostage taking, attacking non-muslims first, killing innocent human beings, killing animals for the fun of it, torturing any creature etc. is forbidden. Check out this website called Answering-Extremism.

Don’t judge a religion based on it’s followers. It’s not religion that motivates these awful actions, but hate. Islam is perfect but muslims are not. If you really want to know who Muslims are supposed to follow & be like, then please watch this video, it’ll mend your heart: The Mercy of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) - Bilal Assad.

Here are also some wonderful websites that refute misconceptions about Islam: Almost all misconceptions, the 10 most common misconceptions about Islam, Islam & Tolerance & Top 10 Misconceptions About Islam.

Remember that every single religion has it’s extremists & misguided followers, Islam is unfortunately no exception.

If you’re not Muslim, please take a second to read this. Even if you might have doubts about something in our religion, just read this or ask someone! We’re nice people, I swear.

Man pleads guilty to threatening to kill Prez & blow up hospital, but he's not Muslim so you didn't hear about it

well.

Threaten to kill the president and all it gets is a teensy weensy eensy little article.

wow ok

Not to mention, my favorite (as in not at all) euphemism of all time: “Disgruntled X” for whenever it’s a white person attempting/acting out an act of terrorism.
