From one Muslim to the world

“..Take not life, which Allah hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus does He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.” (al-An’am 6:151)

The verses of Qur’an reveal that killing any human being without a just cause is equal to killing the entire humanity. If this is what the holy book teaches, then how do you suspect the Muslim population to be blood-sucking leeches? The recent dreadful Paris attack, the attack on Mumbai and so many others by terrorists are simply expressing their hostility towards the very religion they claim to be theirs! They are the people who are committing horrible crimes in the name of Islam. They have lost their humanity in the midst of evil and are trying to disrupt the peaceful society. We defy those people and their unforgiving acts. They do not belong to Islam. Islam prohibits suicide and murders. In fact, no religion favours taking life.  If the motive for terrorism is religious, it is impermissible in Islamic law. It is forbidden to attempt to impose Islam on other people. The Qur’an says, “There is no compulsion in religion. The right way has become distinct from error.” (-The Cow, 2:256).

Stop suspecting us! Stop making us feel a leper, an outcast! We are a part of this world and we, too loath the blasphemous terrorists! We are humans and unlike any other terrorist, we fear getting someone’s blood on our hands. Do not stereotype us for that one per cent who are spoiling the pure Islamic religion.”The Prophet also said that there are people who kill in the name of Islam and go to hell. And when he was asked why, he said, ‘Because they weren’t fighting truly for the sake of God.’ It is painful to be scrutinized every minute by hundreds of eyes. It is cruel of you to think we don’t feel how you do. It is insulting to call all of us, “heartless wretched and cold-blooded animals.”

This is a message, a request from one Muslim to the world that, “Every Muslim is not a terrorist.”
