No to terrorism by Nayzak No to terrorism by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],


Many ignorant people in the west unjustly accuse Muslims of terrorism as if terrorism is a Muslim monopoly. ignorance about Islam and the misleading media are what blinds these people and prevents them from seeing the truth about Islam.

There is no doubt that everyone in the west is in agreement on at least one thing: Terrorists are Horrible. But what is not clear in the minds of many of these people at this moment is the fact that Muslims are NOT terrorists. Islam does not teach terrorism, bombing, kidnapping, hijacking and murder. Quite the opposite is true. Even the "Jihad" [often misunderstood to mean "Holy War") is nothing like the newspapers and television media have portrayed it in the past.

Timothy McViegh blew up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City a number of years back was a Roman Catholic. Did anyone accuse the church for what he did? Unfortunately, the same is not true for Muslims and Arabs. The vast majority of Muslims or Arabs have no association with the violent events around the world yet Islam is invoked with terrorism. It is unfair to 1.5 billion Muslims of the world and religion of Islam.

Is it justice to blame a nation on the basis of the opinion of its rivals and enemies, ignoring the greatness of that nation, its roots, scholars and books?
Islam has forbidden violence in all its forms. It has forbidden hijacking airplanes, ships and other means of transport and has forbidden all acts that would undermine security

Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy and forgiveness. If an individual Muslim were to commit an act of terrorism, this person would be guilty of violating the basic tenants of Islam.

God says in the holy Qur'an in 5:32:
مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا ۚ
translation:
"whoever kills a soul not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it is as if he had killed all mankind. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved all mankind".

The last prophet of Islam, prophet Mohammed -peace and blessings be upon him- said:
"He who harms a person having a treaty with the Muslims, or charged him more than he can, I will argue against him on the Day of Judgement"
and
"Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise"
and
"He who hurts a dhimmi* hurts me, and he who hurts me annoys Allah"




*dhimmi : a non-Muslim living legally in Islamic land and holding a different belief.




I hope this was beneficial.

Being autistic, I was so in the dark about the truth about Islam. Until I met a girl named Maya, whom was Muslim & my friend. I haven't seen her in a while, so I really do miss her. 

 Also World History had opened up my mind to the good things about the Middle East. I am still awestrucked by how much the Muslim faith was all set up before Christianity started. 

  I hate terrorism, but I also despise how the newscast media is spewing up hate for fans of fandoms & people with autism. They are making people like me look like villains, which we are not.

  So I am with you!

The dictionary definition is wide enough that any sort of conflict that involves violence can be considered terrorism.

I love this picture for so many different reasons. The artistic quality (<333) and the wonderful message that needs to be yelled from the rooftops all across the West. 

Nothing pisses me off more than ignorant bigotry. 
Like in all aspects of society, religious or what have you, there are extremists. Extremists and radicals who use the name of God for their own selfish evils. I mean, here in the West, I'll see the occasional news story of a woman (usually Christian) who kills her children because "God told her to". (Not to mention our problem with fanatic religious cults based around polygamy and child rape....) No one ever associates that with the assumed "evils" of Christianity. It's always about obvious mental and/or personality disorders the person may have that could have contributed to the crime(s). I just can't stand how these ignorant "deeply conservative" right wingers portray Islam/being Muslim as interchangeable with extremist terrorism. Just like crimes here, they're committed by a bunch of crazies. Religion has nothing to do with it.

A lovely thing I saw on NBC about 2 years ago was a special on true Islam. How it teaches peace and kindness, pretty much like any other system of faith.  Yet, DISTURBINGLY, a poll I recently viewed had shown a lot Americans still believe Islam to be a "non-peaceful" religion.  It's like, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Do you KNOW how to read? Or even skim the pages of Wikipedia, for that matter?  Just blows my mind.

These madmen know exactly that they don't just kill the people they blow up and shoot. With every innocent a certain group kills, two or more innocents of this group will be killed in attempts to find those who committed the crime and even more will be killed for revenge. They don't just commit a crime, they force more people to create crimes, creating more victims. Yes, the US didn't act right when they attacked Afghanistan and the Iraq. They committed crimes. And there's no excuse for that. But this is a guilt the americans don't have to carry alone on their shoulders, it lasts on these terrorists as well. And the worst is, by turning against the americans, joining their ranks and killing more innocents, people just support them more and THAT is what their true intentions are behind vicious attacks like 9/11. The americans are a minor target. The main target are their own people, so they are forced to join them and become as guilty as all who just turn this vicious circle more and more.

The difference is that Timothy McViegh did not destroy the Federal Building because of his religious but personal beliefs. The 9-11, Boston, Madrid, etc bombers did blow up innocents in name of their faith. It might be a different interpretation of Islam than your faith (and granted, it shows the ignorance of many western media sources that they are unable to distinguish between the types) but it demonstrates the extreme views and actions of some people with this this religion.

Comparing the two is ridiculous.

regardless of his intentions, if his religion isn't mentioned, the religion of the supposedly Muslim terrorists shouldn't be mentioned. if their religion is mentioned, his should be mentioned. that's how a non-biased media should deal with things.

"The 9-11, Boston, Madrid, etc bombers did blow up innocents in name of their faith."
In fact, the 9-11 was an inside Job. it was achieved by the transgressing government as an excuse to ravage Muslim lands and steal their wealth. Now everybody knows the truth of the filthy terrorism of the west. We also shouldn't ignore that international terrorism is led by Western governments and planted in Muslim countries to prevent their union and corrupt the image of Islam.

but it demonstrates the extreme views and actions of some people with this this religion.
if some people have extreme views, especially if they contradict their religion, the religion shouldn't be blamed.

Comparing the two is ridiculous.
yes, Everything that doesn't fit your twisted and corrupted image of Islam is ridiculous.

But how is what these people are doing now any different than when Mohammed fought against the pagan leaders of Mecca?
Reply
:iconnayzak:
Nayzak Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012
It is different on so many levels.
Mohammed did not kill any innocent people. he did not attack or command attacking civilians. he did not spread terror.

first, the prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- did not fight the pagan leaders of Mekkah. they are the ones who fought him. when he started preaching the religion of the God peacefully (just talking), the pagans urged him to stop. since he did not, they used violence and started hostilities. they tortured and killed many Muslims yet the Muslims were patient for many years. until the God allowed them to fight back, and they did. it was a justifiable defensive fighting.
Now, if you mean the conquest of Mekkah, well, the Muslims simply took back what belonged to them. The holy Kaaba was first built by prophet Abraham -peace be upon him- centuries ago for the worship of the one God, Allah. the pagans sullied it with their idols. Mohammed was simply commanded to remove what did not belong there. and when he conquered Mekkah, he did not spread violence and terror. he even forgave his enemies. if you read any neutral biography of the prophet Mohammed, you will realize that whenever the prophet was faced with a choice, he always chose the peaceful one. he never started fighting unless he had no choice. I recommend Martin Lings' biography of the prophet Mohammed if you are interested.

according to the laws of Islam, what Mohammed did was justified.
according to the same laws of Islam, what these terrorists do is not justified.
according to international laws, what Mohammed did was also justified.
according to international laws, what the terrorists do is not justified.
there is no way to think they are similar.

Nayzak Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012
Jesus -peace be upon him- had different circumstances. he could not gather enough followers to stand and fight. To my knowledge, He also planned to get prepared to fight back. that's why he asked his disciples to prepare swords. but in the end, he realized that it would be suicidal and his followers would all be killed, so he commanded them not to fight. if all were killed, no one would spread the message of Jesus after his departure.

and the God knows best.

Nayzak Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012
Well, what I know is that each prophet had specific circumstances. for example, the circumstances of Jesus were different from those of Moses or David. therefore, we can not assume that all had similar chances to achieve their missions.

returning to prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him-, the beginning of his mission, he told his followers (when they were as little as the followers of Jesus -peace be upon him-) that they will fight and defeat both the Byzantines and the Persians. as crazy as it might have sounded, that really and literally happened in less than half century.

My father has a very negative view on Islam and muslims. One of his main arguments is that "Why don't westernized muslim's speak out against extreamists activity? Why do they not protest against terrorists?"
Basically my father feels that this percieved silence of everyday muslims means that they are in support of, or at least unsympathetic towards the whole situation.

I say to him that I have heard of a handful of muslim's from time to time online like yourself speak out against terrorism, saying 'We do NOT support terrorists.", however this alone is not enough to change his way of thinking. I also stated that I beleive that the reason we don't hear muslim's stating thier views against terrorism is because the news chooses most of the time not to show these protests. My dad unfortunatly puts too much trust in the media and appears to refuse that it would manipulate stories and stereotypes for it's own gain.

This conversation happened a while back, however recently one of my close friends has stated that he too thinks this way. "If normal muslim's are so against terrorism, how come we never hear them say so?" Because I have yet to do more extensive reasearch into this topic, I often feel that my words and opinions hold no ground and I am powerless to argue back. This is something I do plan to work on for the future, I wish to defend the muslim community from such negative perceptions.

It appears that this is something that perhaps many people whom distrust the muslim community believe, or it is at least a point in the argument that could be used against muslims. Have you Nayzak encountered this point of view before?

will this [link] and this [link] be enough to convince your father?

I believe the problem is that the western media focuses more on the extremist voices and ignores the peaceful Muslims no matter how loud they yell. the media, in fact, is a business company. it's obvious that they will give you only what allows them to sell more and get their pockets fuller. telling you about good and nice Muslims isn't as exciting and entertaining as evil and dangerous desert dwellers who need a (American) hero to discipline them. you get my point?

people who get their information from varied sources can easily find the truth.

I hope the above 2 articles are a good start. for more, please visit this link: [link]

Thank you very much for this wonderful and helpful response! I did not expect quite the reply, I'm filled with glee.

I am happy that at least if my father brings up this argument again, I will have a much more educated response. It is true, the news media shows what bests profits them, without any concious as to how it effects everyday people, and sadly this has shaped my fathers very negative perspective.

Thank you for your help, I very much enjoy reading your articles and learning more about Islam. Peace be to you friend.

But I wonder, what about terrorist attacks against those who doesn't have an agreement with the muslims? Like Israel. the jews in Israel are not dhimmis, and hold agreements with some, but not all of their neighbours. Is it neccessary for a person to have an agreement with the muslims to avoid being a victim of terrorism?

And I think the reason why people think terrorism is associated with islam is that the terrorists themselves claims it is in the name of islam. Timothy McVeigh didn't do his terror in the name of christianity.

I don't ask to be rude, but because I don't know and I am interested in understanding...
