If Islam is a religion of peace and toleration, and murder is against the will of Allah. Does Allah reward terrorists?

On one hand they say murder is the worst thing a person can and will make them go to what they call hell. On the other hand terrorists claim to be doing Allah's bidding when they bravely murder innocent women and children in the name of Islam and Allah. So which is it?

They are not doing Allah's bidding ! They are doing the bidding of some fanatics who interpret the Quran the way they want to . Allah does not reward terrorists who kill innocent people . I've read the Quran and there is nothing there about killing people . Just these Ayatollahs and fanatic Imams tell the young ones this to get them to do terrorist acts . Kind of like brainwashing !

Islam, a religion of mercy, does not permit terrorism. In the Quran, God has said:

"God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers." (Quran 60:8)

The Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, used to prohibit soldiers from killing women and children,[1] and he would advise them: "...Do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child."[2] And he also said: "Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years."[3]

Also, the Prophet Muhammad has forbidden punishment with fire.[4]

He once listed murder as the second of the major sins,[5] and he even warned that on the Day of Judgment, "The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed.[6]"[7]

Muslims are even encouraged to be kind to animals and are forbidden to hurt them. Once the Prophet Muhammad said: "A woman was punished because she imprisoned a cat until it died. On account of this, she was doomed to Hell. While she imprisoned it, she did not give the cat food or drink, nor did she free it to eat the insects of the earth."[8]

He also said that a man gave a very thirsty dog a drink, so God forgave his sins for this action. The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, was asked, "Messenger of God, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?" He said: ?There is a reward for kindness to every living animal or human."[9]

Additionally, while taking the life of an animal for food, Muslims are commanded to do so in a manner that causes the least amount of fright and suffering possible. The Prophet Muhammad said: "When you slaughter an animal, do so in the best way. One should sharpen his knife to reduce the suffering of the animal."[10]

In light of these and other Islamic texts, the act of 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.

the verses are clear ...

( 8 ) Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes - from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.

( 9 ) Allah only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion - [forbids] that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers. Quran (60:8-9)

Again with the vague doublespeak. Is there a reason why you can't or won't give a straight answer? It's like talking to a child who has his fangers crossed behind his back. I once heard an IMam declare that to a Muslim, only Muslims are innocent. And if Islam teaches murder of infidels who will not submit to the will of Muslims, then that would mean that killing infidels would be a commandment of Islam, and the duty of Muslims. But then again Taqiyya would justify the vague half denial of this. And Kitman would justify maintaining that Islam is a religion of peace and toleration in spite of the fact that most terrorists are Muslims who are hailed as heros in the Muslims community.

Umm Kulthum, daughter of ?Uqbah, said : I did not hear the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) giving licence for anything people say falsely except in three matters. The Apostle of allah (May peace be upon him) would say : I do not count liar a man who puts things right between people, saying a word by which he intends only putting things right, and a man who says something in war, and a man who says something to his wife says something to his husband.

But Taqiyya and Kitman are devices that Muslims use to hide truth from those they desire to decieve.
Perhaps the words of Muslims is sufficient since Mulsims never lie right?

Since there are few of them preaching violence, and the majority of Muslims in the world live in peace, I would say that the peaceful ones are the mainstream.

It would appear that the extremists are politely ignored by the 'mainstream' because the mainstream would become a target for protesting the extremists actions too. Sort of like catch 22 in support of terrorism. I say, kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out.

EVERY religion preaches the practice of conversion. They all refer to the sword (force and threat) for compliance. You must realize all Religions use similar tactics to enforce their existence and to continue their profligation.

It sounds like to you all religions are based on the bible. But even the Judaism, the original Religion from which Islam and Christianity is based never practiced a join us or die campaign. I think only Christians have the join us or else theme going. But Christians go with join us or you won't be saved. Leaving Muslims as the only join us or die religion. Have you ever heard of buddhists for example converting infidels at the edge of the sword?
Report as
No. But i have not heard of Buddhists using terrorism (as was originally asked) All religions are most decidedly NOT Christian based. BUT all (well, almost all) have an overwhelming drive to either convert or die mantra. This is used to promote, expand and increase adherents. This is how religion survives and thrives. Show a religion that is base upon some 'form' of man Christianity, Islam, whatever, and you will find the need to 'demand' obedience (under threat of death if not accepted) This is where the universal theory of 'the death penalty' originates from. We (Man) are able to take away (and give) life. This is a man made form of demanding obedience.
Report as
There are more peaceful religions than the join us or else ones. In fact I think the Abrahamic religions, specifically Chrstianity and Islam practice this. The original question never mentioned anything abot Budhism and terrorism. Are you confusing Islam and Buddhism? They are different.

The term Muslim is a privelage as well as a responsibility that terrorists do not deserve to have. So, the answer is no.

The issue is, the Imam's who authorize the " Just Cause". It is lost in the argument, when the leaders of a sect use THE Book in this manner.

Yes I notice the language seems intentionally convuluted and vague. THey do not simply say killing is wrong. They say things like without just cause or corrpuption. They say things like fought you over religion or have driven fromyour homes, or having a treaty wiht Muslims. The language is vague and seems to sugar coat that commiting terrorist acts is allowed and is in fact the duty of Muslims. They pretend the land of ISrael was once theirs and say they drove us from our homes. They say they have no treaty with Islam therfore it is their duty to kill all infidels. They say everyone but Muslims are corrupt, and give them just cause therefore killing them is required. They talk around the point with muddled language but they seem to say one thing nut really mean something else. Is this Kitman?
