Is Islam a Religion of Peace? (Answering Islam Part 16)

Is Islam a Religion of Peace? (Answering Islam Part 16)

Muslims who carry out terrorist attacks in
the name of Allah quote the Qur’an to justify their attacks. Muslims who condemn violence in the name of
Allah also quote the Qur’an to justify their condemnation of violence. The Qur’an contains both peaceful and violent
teachings, so it’s very easy to pick a verse that will justify either peaceful or violent
behavior. But is obeying Allah simply a matter of picking
a verse that justifies whatever you happen to be doing? Or is there a coherent message about peace
and violence? The Qur’an presents its own method of interpretation—the
Doctrine of Abrogation. In Surah 2, verse 106, Allah declares: Whatever communications We abrogate or cause
to be forgotten, We bring one better than it or like it. Do you not know that Allah has power over
all things? According to the Qur’an, then, when Muslims
are faced with conflicting commands, they aren’t supposed to pick the one they like
best. Rather, they are to go to history and see
which verse was revealed last. Whichever verse came last is said to abrogate
(or cancel) earlier revelations. When we apply this method to the Qur’an,
we find that there are three stages in the call to Jihad, depending on the status of
Muslims in a society. When Muhammad and his followers were only
a tiny minority of the population, they were commanded to preach a message of peace and
tolerance. If a Muslim had a disagreement with an unbeliever,
he was commanded to quote Surah 109, verse 6: “To you be your religion and to me be
my religion.” At this stage, Muslims weren’t allowed to
fight, even to defend themselves against persecution. Many Muslims point to Qur’an verses that
were revealed during this time as proof that Islam is a religion of peace. But the message of the Qur’an eventually
changed. When Muhammad had gained a larger following
and had formed alliances with various tribes, but wasn’t yet strong enough to subjugate
non-Muslims, he was ordered to wage Defensive Jihad. At this stage, Muslims are ordered to fight
unbelievers, but only if the unbelievers do something first. A characteristic passage is Surah 2, verses
190 to 193: And fight in the way of Allah with those who
fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed
the limits. And kill them wherever you find them, and
drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter. And do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque
until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the
recompense of the unbelievers. But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving,
Merciful. And fight with them until there is no persecution,
and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility
except against the oppressors. So there’s fighting in Stage Two, but the
fighting is a response to persecution, or oppression, or even criticism. Many Muslims in the West insist that this
is the end of the story. Fighting is only for self-defense. But the revelations continued to change as
the Muslim community expanded. When Muhammad and his followers became the
most powerful force in Arabia, they were commanded to wage Offensive Jihad—violently subjugating
non-Muslims, simply for being non-Muslims. Surah 9, verse 29 of the Qur’an commands
Muslims to “Fight those who do not believe in Allah . . .” Notice, this is a command to fight people
based on what they believe. Surah 9, verse 73: O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers
and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them. Strive hard against whom? Oppressors? Persecutors? People who are attacking you? No. “Strive hard against the unbelievers (non-Muslims)
and the hypocrites (people who claim to be Muslims but aren’t fully submitting to the
commands of Allah and Muhammad.)” Surah 9, verse 123: O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers
who are near to you and let them find in you hardness. Surah 48, verse 29: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those
who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. The distinction in these verses is not between
people who are attacking you and people who aren’t attacking you. The distinction is between believer and unbeliever,
and those who are with Muhammad are only to be merciful towards fellow Muslims. Putting all of this together, we see that
jihad proceeds in stages. Stage One: Promote peace and tolerance when
the Muslim community is thoroughly outnumbered. Stage Two: Fight defensively when the Muslim
community is strong enough to fight, but not strong enough to conquer. Stage Three: Fight offensively when the Muslim
community is strong enough to violently subjugate non-Muslims. Interestingly, you can look at any country
in the world and see how the message of Islam changes based on the strength of the Muslim

  1. Yo David, I've got a question for you, that I would be very very very grateful to get an answer.What few books would you recommend for a person wanting to get into Apologetics?
    Thank you!

  2. I still think it's a violent religion because of other verses, but I can see how fight could be interpreted as "argue" instead in this verse. Fight them unrelentingly, unless they are already Muslim, save the argument for Non-Muslims. But Allah probably wouldn't have used the word "fight" instead of "argue" if he meant "argue" and didn't want it to be misinterpreted as "fight". Terrorists and many muslim countries certainly interpret it as "fight".

  3. Hi. I didn’t find another way to reach you. Please help me in this research. It is about the secret of Vatican. They are saying that:
    According to Exodus 3:14, when the Lord appeared to Moses as a burning bush, He referred to Himself in the Hebrew tongue as “Yaweh,” meaning, “I am who I am.” However, the Holy See now says that was only part of God’s message to Moses. “God said, ‘I am who I am,” the Vatican source told Sky News. “He then followed up with, ‘And I am [this name].’ That final word is what the Holy See plans to make known to the world.”

    As to why the Catholic Church has gone to such great lengths to keep God’s true name a secret remains unknown. What is clear is that the Papacy has maintained an unbroken chain of communication in regards to the matter dating back to 468 A.D. “In keeping with tradition, each successive Pope since Hilarius has been made aware of the Lord’s name,” Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed on Friday.

  4. Hi David. Please make videos about Yousuf estes as make of Zakir Naik. He seems to criticize Christianity very thoroughly. Plz do it…

  5. And also I have noted that many of the Muslims who converted from Christianity say that one of the reasons for their conversion is that the prophets and apostles in the Bible (including Jesus Christ) prayed to God bowed down their heads towards the ground, just as the Muslims pray today and saying that it was real worship. Please make a video on this. God bless you….

  6. Islam is the death cult of peace. Just imagine how peaceful it'll be once they've managed to murder everyone on the planet except those who are actively murdering everyone in the name of Islam!

  7. David, could you do a video on Malaysia and Indonesia? I've heard those nations are peaceful, yet have more Muslims than the Middle East. I'm rather curious about this topic.

  8. If islam religion of peace, the discussion will never exist. The hates, devil works like killing and beheading, blowing up peoples , killing innocent are negatives actions. Negatives means bad means evil. So islam is evil religion. So simple.

  9. We actually don't need to argue whether we can interpret Islam correctly since there's clear evidence many "misinterpret" the Muslim sources. So either way, Islam is the problem.

  10. David,

    Does Allah = God? the moslem and Judeo – christian concepts seem to be very different! This business of 'killing them where you find them' is total anathama to Christians for example, asis slavery , treatment of women and all the rest of it

  11. The Islamic Conquest of Polytheistic India  
    “The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period.” Will Durant1935 “The Story of Civilisation: Our Oriental Heritage” (page 459)

    Muslim historian Firishta [full name Muhammad Qasim Hindu Shah, born in 1560 and died in 1620], the author of the Tarikh-i Firishta and the Gulshan-i Ibrahim, was the first to give an idea to the medieval bloodbath that was India during Muslim rule, when he declared that over 400 million Hindus got slaughtered…”  Perhaps that was a boastful exaggeration. Or perhaps not."

  12. David have you ever heard of the famous cliff richard a Christian singer had talked about the koran being a beautiful book and yet he claims to follow christ ..perhaps you should do a video for him and offer him a debate .His views are also on you tube. I think celebs are virtue signalling.Even that Australian Iman admits faults and violence in the book and demands reform.i was a person going to work and experienced 7th July bombings and one lone wolf attempted attack in East London

  13. if you haven't already, i feel it would be a great idea to make a video on how different sects and regions of the islamic world consider each other Infidel

  14. My Christian friends, Islam is a religion of violence, and I thank brother David for his efforts, sure after all Christianity is the religion of peace, it is the most peaceful religion in the world, and after I have done my academic research…, I found the opposite, and here is what I found in the Bible:
    1- If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 21:18-21
    2- “I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.” (1 Timothy 2:12)
    3- “This is what the Lord Almighty says… ‘Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’” (1 Samuel 15:3)
    4- “Do not allow a sorceress to live.” (Exodus 22:18)
    5- “Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us – he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.” (Psalm 137:9)
    6- “So the man took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight. When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, ‘Get up; let’s go.’ But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.” (Judges 19:25-28)
    7- “In the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.” (Romans 1:27)
    8- “And Jephthah made a vow to the Lord, and said, ‘If you will give the Ammonites into my hand, then whoever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return victorious from the Ammonites, shall be the Lord’s, to be offered up by me as a burnt-offering.’ Then Jephthah came to his home at Mizpah; and there was his daughter coming out to meet him with timbrels and with dancing. She was his only child; he had no son or daughter except her. When he saw her, he tore his clothes, and said, ‘Alas, my daughter! You have brought me very low; you have become the cause of great trouble to me. For I have opened my mouth to the Lord, and I cannot take back my vow.’” (Judges 11:30-1, 34-5)
    9- ‘Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt-offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you.’ (Genesis 22:2)
    10- “Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the cruel.” (1 Peter 2:18)
    11- “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:22)
    Stop following David Wood, stop being sheep, be the master of your own minds, be kind, be rational, be moral, what is the point in debunking Islam when your religion can easily debunked, from the age of the earth, the way we came to life, and morals…, we are all humans why do you always seek to label each other and separate yourselves from each other? Because that's what David wants? Because that's what God wants? Is that what you really want?

  15. This man still wasting his life trying to downbring Islam? You can lead a couple people astray, You can critisize our Prophet but you’ll never even come lose to kissing his feet.

  16. חִכּוֹ, מַמְתַקִּים, וְכֻלּוֹ, מַחֲמַדִּים; זֶה דוֹדִי וְזֶה רֵעִי, בְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם.
    If any of you people can read the language of Jesus then why dont you read this. The song of Solomon clearly telling you about Muhammad! This is in Hebrew!
    David Wood I pray that you are rid of the soul of satan for the way you talk about our religion is against the teachings of Christ. Even if you consider us your enemy Jesus says to treat them with love and care.Where does he say to make fun of other religions. You are not a Christian you are a bad human. You do not know the context of Quran you are no-one to talk.
    And I think I should start a youtube channel talking about the KKK and support it with verses of the bible just to earn money. Disgusting man. Who earns money by going agaisnt the word of Jesus and speaking badly of other religion. Give me a verse in the bible which says to talk badly of other religions.
    P.s: All muslims can read arabic the word of the original Quran. If you were true believers you would learn Hebrew and understand the real meaning and speak the word of Jesus.

  17. David, I think you have pointed out before that the verses 2:190-193 use the Arabic word "Fitnah" rather than "prosecution", which is better defined as 'disbelief' or 'defiance'… would I be correct to assume those verses are not as defensive as they have been made to appear?

  18. David 'Hard'Wood for prez 2024!! This guy is great. He is my hero. He is what will make America great again! He embodies everything we are as a nation — he is a cross-dressing, father-beating, narcissistic, psychotic, drivel-spewing, un-informed carpet-munching, rabble-rouser!!… other than that, he is fantastic. He is America! David 'Hard'Wood for prez 2024

  19. David 'Hard'Wood for prez 2024!! This guy is great. He is my hero. He is what will make America great again! He embodies everything we are as a nation — he is a cross-dressing, father-beating, narcissistic, psychotic, drivel-spewing, un-informed carpet-munching, rabble-rouser!!… other than that, he is fantastic. He is America! David 'Hard'Wood for prez 2024!!

  20. Hey David, great video! Also, I thought you'd like to take a look at this video attempting to "expose" you:
    What do you think of it? 'Cause it looks to me like some wacky conspiracy theorist video.

  21. Since Stage 3 is going to happen anyway it is wise not to appease muslims or to accommodate them in anyway. When they are majority we will regret being compassionate and liberal towards them. Be uncompassionate and unyielding to those whose doctrines demand your violent subjugation. Cast them out. Mock them. Mock their false prophet. Never be silent and forever criticise Mohamed and his corrupt mind. Reveal to the world the evil and perversion that is core to Islam as silence is approval of evil.

  22. If Islam is being judged based on act done by some Muslims who does not even comprise of minority, then will you accept if we will call all Christians as crusaders?

  23. Is Islam a religion of piece??? Hell yes!! …..When Muslums and their so called religion get a hold of something all you find left is a piece here , a piece there…a piece everywhere.

  24. You all believe in the same Abrahamic God and Muhammed was the last prophet so I find it bizarre that you Christians chose to not follow the last revelation because you can't believe in one without believing in the other when the messages are from the same God same Angels talks of the same heaven and hell same Jesus, Adam and Eve wake up Christians Jesus is coming back and we will see if you call him God and what he will say to those who do.

  25. It would be good to remind people that the koran is NOT written in chronological order, its written according to number of verses per chapter. the Hadith give us the story of the order of events in the koran.

    please show the hadith that indicates the historical order of 109.6

    Also, could you do a little bit on verses that say the Koran is to be held above all other laws and muhammad is the perfect example of a human?

  26. Quran (8:38-39) – “Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven… And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”

  27. No. It's a cult. The participants are directed to violence: in the home, in the community, in the world. The fact that this cult has a 'jihad of the womb' demonstrates just how violent the core ideology has become.

  28. CAN.YOU.PLease.answer.thisquestion…………Br when Jesus never claim that am gonna die for mankind's sin when he never claim divinity neither any previous prophets claim messiah to b crucified for mankind's sin in old testment than why should I believe that he died for me ???And if that's the case than why did many nations before get destroyed I mean they were also humans.aint god bisaed in this case??

  29. simply remove two words kafir and jihad the very irritating and very controversial words from the so called holy book every thing in cult falls flat and a mountain of relief is obvious.

  30. Non-Muslim: I believe in Co-existence.
    Muslim: I don't.
    Non-Muslim: You are trouble
    Dumb Non-Muslims: I stand with Muslims.
    Me: Right…

  31. Love that you've done this series of short segments that answer single questions, better for sharing on social media.

  32. How on earth is it that the WEST is still having this conversation about this IDEOLOGY that is attacking Western Democracy in every country ?? Avoiding the VERY obvious ! ISLAM is an IDEOLOGY with a RELIGIOUS arm that it NOT PEACEFUL !
    WESTERN NATIONS brought migrants in who are members of this supremicist IDEOLOGY & did not bother to do ANY HOMEWORK about the Ideology or the AGENDA & NOW have their POPULATION being attacked & the SO CALED COWARDS in CHARGED are both in DENIAL & BEWILDERED because they have NO IDEA what to do next !
    It is the BLOODY ARROGANCE that continually gets us all in TROUBLE ! NOW we have a TRUE FIFTH COLUMN in the pace – with not a bloody clue on how to clear it out !

  33. Lol he is obssesed with Islam hahha He attacks Islam cuz he knows many many many christians are converting to ISLAM hahahahhahaha

  34. Yes – Islam is a "religion of peace". You just need to know the context of what they mean by that. They simply mean that once the world is 100% Muslim, then there will be peace. So their job now is to either convert the heathen by word, or by force, to achieve their idea of peace.

  35. To believe that a man is god or the literal son of God is absolute Idolatry .True early Christianity never accepted this most evil belief ,this concept came from the European lands where this heresy evolved from the twisted minds of pagan Europeans under Constantine .Go check your history Trinitarians.

  36. Do you know David there is no difference between you and common traditional Muslims
    Every one of you interpret Quran the same way for his own sake :
    – stupid Muslims for that Islam is only the truth religion and they are all right about every dam thing
    -and you David to credit and prove your point of Islam
    You David just like this Muslim interpret Quran as Muslims ,and this mainly not your all fault its Muslims old heritage of Islam and Quran dominated view and interface to any western or foreign
    -Reading you for translated Quran from classical Arabic that most Muslims don't know a much to English and taking common Muslims interpretation to your video is non sense
    -You probably don't know or read about moderate truth Quran interpretation or what they called heretic in Muslims today
    And I don't blame who's like you david
    Of course Muslims who

  37. brilliant video David,
    there's just one thing that confuses me:
    why the peaceful verse at surah 109 comes after the evil verses at surah 9?
    are the verses of the quran not written in the order they were revealed?

  38. What a foolish man he is not even sure what is he arguing for, trying to protect that book those ancestors couldn’t defend it.

  39. You're a real dirt bag man, dedicating your life to hate on islam with your cancer channel. You're obviously still upset about 9/11 and cant move on you pathetic guy. You talk of islam being a lie but what about Christianity? Apparently we're not a religion of peace but tell me something why did Jesus in the bible say i come with sword, sell your cloaks and buy swords. Sword was actually mentioned over 400 times in the bible. 0 in the Qur'an. We pray 5 times a day, no wine like Christianity. "blood of Jesus Christ".. Ridiculous. You go church on a sunday and you thank jesus for everything yet if he was the son of god he would of been a better god than god himself as jesus walked on this planet.. And its real rich saying we have contradictions and different versions yet how many versions of the Bible is there hm? There is only 1 Qur'an that us muslims know and its truth. Were the only religion to have any reference to science, things only being found out with 20th century technology but guess what? It was revealed in the Qur'an which was written over 1400 years ago. Also how many people do you know that has memorised all verses of original bible in koine greek? Now go ask a muslim the same but about the Qur'an. Guaranteed he knows someone who memorised the whole of the Qur'an or he has himself. Your channel is cancer putting just one religion down while hiding the lies of your own.

  40. David you said to look at any Muslim country we're Muslims are in a majority to see stage 3 of jihad and I looked at Bosnia,Albania and Kosovo which are 3 Muslim majority countries in Europe they have so much tolerance of people of other faiths there are churches next to mosques and Muslims in these countries we're they are a majority are not not oppressing anybody and they are not trying to impose Sharia. So I think you should not generalise people.

  41. Today, many non-Muslims regard Islam as a religion that promotes violence, terrorism and war. Unfortunately, they rely in their view of Islam on the general media, which is not always accurate in reporting the news. Many media outlets, such as TV, radio, newspapers and magazines, are influenced by their investors or owners who have certain agendas and who want to promote certain values and points of view. Other media outlets are simply after the "big story", in order to make more money and more profits. Others are simply "followers", who only gather news from other sources, re-package it and try to sell it again purely as a business.

    In all these cases, the news reporting is not accurate, but is driven by ulterior motives or simply by profits. Only very few media organizations are committed to providing accurate and true information, regardless of financial gain. Therefore, people today should be very careful in what they take from the media.

    Before blindly accepting what the TV, radio or newspaper is reporting, one should think critically about what is being reported. Is this being reported accurately, or is it being exaggerated or even completely fabricated? Who are these people reporting the news, and do they have vested interests to report the story in a certain way, or are they completely objective and fair? Critical thinking is very important in all aspects of life, especially when it comes to accepting the media reports about important and controversial issues.

    Islam is in fact a religion that promotes peace and understanding among people of all faiths, and it strongly prohibits all forms of violence and aggression against all people regardless of their faith or race.

    2. Islam Prohibits Violence and Aggression, and stands for Peace and Justice.

    Islam clearly prohibits all kinds and forms of aggression and violence against anyone, except in self-defence. Islam is a practical religion, meant to be implemented in every aspect of our life. Therefore, it realizes the fact that a person who commits aggression and violence against others will not cease these actions unless they are deterred by similar actions taken against them.

    Islam also places very high importance on justice, and allows for aggressors and unjust people be punished accordingly, unless they repent before they are brought to justice. At the same time, Islam encourages people to forgive those who have wronged them whenever possible.

    Evidence of these ideals can be found in the Holy Qur'an, which is the word of God revealed to the messenger of God, Mohammad peace be upon him. It can also be found in the Hadith, the sayings of Mohammad peace be upon him, and in his teachings to Muslims. A few examples of this are shown below from the Holy Qur'an:

    "Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, and do not transgress; for Allah loveth not transgressors." (Surah 2, Verse 190).

    "But if they cease (fighting you), Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah 2, Verse 192).

    "But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in Allah: for He is the One that Hearth and Knoweth (all things)." (Surah 8, Verse 61).

    "The prohibited month, for the prohibited month, and so for all things prohibited, there is the law of equality. If then any one transgresses the prohibition against you, transgress ye likewise against him. But fear Allah, and know that Allah is with those who restrain themselves." (Surah 2, Verse 194).

    " … and let not the hatred of some people in (once) shutting you out of the Sacred Mosque lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not one another in sin and rancour: fear Allah: for Allah is strict in punishment." (Surah 5, Verse 2).

    "Nor can Goodness and Evil be equal. Repel (Evil) with what is better: then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate!" (Surah 41, Verse 34).

    "O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do." (Surah 4, Verse 135).

    "God advocates justice, charity, and regarding the relatives. And He forbids evil, vice, and transgression. He enlightens you, that you may take heed." (Surah 16, Verse 90).

    "And if ye do punish them, punish them no worse than they punished you: but if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient." (Surah 16, Verse 126). The first three verses above instruct Muslims to fight those who fight them, and not to commit aggression first, as God does not like transgressors. They also instruct Muslims to stop fighting those who wish to cease fighting them, and to accept peace with the enemy who becomes inclined towards peace.

    The fourth verse mentioned above instructs Muslims that if someone transgresses against them, they should respond to them likewise, and it reminds Muslims to fear God and to restrain themselves to this limit.

    The fifth verse reminds Muslims not to let hatred of some people for past reasons to lead them to transgress against those people or be hostile towards them. It also instructs us to help each other in good and righteous actions, and not to cooperate in aggression and sin, and it reminds them finally of the strict punishment of God to encourage them to abide by these principles.

    The sixth verse reminds us that goodness and evil are never equal, and that we should repel evil with good actions. This means that when someone is unjust to us or commits evil against us, we are encouraged to respond with kind and good actions, so that the hatred between us and that person will evaporate and will become an intimate friendship!

    The seventh verse mentioned reminds us to stand up for justice, even if it is against ourselves or our family, and even if it is against those who are rich or powerful, because justice applies to everyone. It also reminds us that God knows everything we do, and so if we act unjustly even in our hearts, God knows what we did and we will be accountable for that.

    The eighth verse informs us that God enjoins us to follow justice, and that God forbids us from committing evil, vice and transgression.

    The ninth and final verse reminds Muslims that if they are punished, that they may only respond with the same punishment and not to go over this limit. However, they are reminded that forgiveness and patience is the best course of action.

    These are the wonderful ideals of Islam:

    To pursue peace with everyone including past enemies, except when they fight the Muslims and refuse peace, then Muslims are allowed to fight in self-defence.

    To ensure that we always apply justice and never transgress against others even if they are our enemies.

    To repel evil actions with good actions, in order to replace hatred with an intimate friendship.

    To respond to punishment with the same punishment, but that forgiveness and patience is even better than retaliation.

    3. Islamic Principle: Living Peacefully with All Nations and Peoples.

    The verse mentioned below informs us that we were created and made into various nations and tribes so that we may get to know each other, and not so that we may despise and hate each other. Then we are reminded of the the fact that the best of us in God's eyes are those who are most righteous.

    "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full Knowledge and is well-acquainted (with all things)." (Surah 49, Verse 13).

    This wonderful principle of Islam makes it clear that there is no single people, race, or nation that is better than others. God created us all equal. In God's eyes, the best of us are the most righteous and most kind.

    God created mankind as different races and nations although He could have created us all with as one nation, with one language and one religion. However, as stated in the verse mentioned above, God created these different nations and tribes so that we get to know other each other, and not to hate each other because we are different. This tells us that we should celebrate our differences and not hate each other based on them. Islam also teaches us to realize that no single race or people have supremacy over others, and that we are judged solely based on our actions.

    This verse also teaches us that we should live peacefully with other nations and tribes and we should respect each other and our differences. We should learn to live together and to get to know each other, and to engage in dialogue amongst all nations and treat every human being as being equal.

    4. Islamic Principle: There is no Compulsion in Religion

    The verse from the Qur'an which states this principle of no compulsion in religion is the following:

    "Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects Evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah hearth and Knoweth all things." (Surah 2, Verse 256).

    The holy Qur'an reminds us that there must not be compulsion in religion. It states that the truth stands out clear from error, and that those who reject error and believe in God are the saved ones.

  42. Read Quran and Islamic teachings using POSITIVE mind. Muslims battled with non-muslims even when they were very few in numbers (313 muslims vs thousands non-muslims), read correct history then talk about it. When there were only few muslims God(Allah) commanded muslims to do some thing against such people who are doing wrong and spreading violence and hatred towards other and this will cause mass destruction in future for human being. Even muslims did not start any battle first. Read correct history. When there were only few muslims in numbers then Allah sent Angels to help muslims and they succeeded, again plz read and present correct history. I am not here to answer every person, and dont have much time to reply to every comment. I strongly believe in Islam and Quran, and NO one will ever be able to convince me about Christianity even you try on me for next 100 years and more. Please stay away from doubt and negativity. God bless you all brothers and sisters.

  43. 📑1of 2
    ●Why did Aisha marry the Prophet mohammedﷺat young age❔And what is the wisdom behind it ⁉
    ●According to[ authentic sources], Prophet Muhammad ﷺ married Aisha, when she was 6 years old, and the marriage was consummated after she turned 9.
    ●It's important to understand things in their[ historical context]
    For instance It would be silly to ask, what kind of milk did they drink 1400 years ago.
    Or to ask what kind of engine they used back then.
    Therefore one must first understand that things 1400 years ago were very different from now, times have changed and so have humans.
    ●Was this [normal practice] 1400 years ago?
    1400 years ago it was very common for women to marry at a young age.
    ●It is a historic fact that girls from the ages of 9 to 14 were married off in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America.
    Saint Augustine ~350 AD⤵
    He married a girl who was 10 years old.
    -King Richard II 1400AD⤵
    He married a 7 year old .
    -Henry VIII 1500 AD⤵
    He married, a 6 year old
    ●[Even in the bible]: "but save for yourselves every GIRL who has never slept with a man."
    ●[Catholic Encyclopedia]"
    Mary the mother of Jesus was 12 when she married 99-year old Joseph"
    Church of England ministers could marry 12 year olds in Britain.
    ●[Before 1983 Catholic canon] law permitted priests marry off brides of at the age of 12.
    Alot of people are unaware In United states in the state of Delaware in 188O, the minimum age for marriage was 7 years old and in California is was 10 years.
    Even NOW the marriage age for some states are
    12(MA) 14(NY)
    ●[The enemies of the prophetﷺ never think of that]
    At the time of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺthose Who refuse his message tried every method and strategy to harm him.
    They were always looking for chances to attack him verbally or even physically.
    Some of this verbal abuse consisted of calling him a Magician,crazy. ..
    However, they never thought to point out or object to his marriage to Aisha. Why?
    Because this was the norm of society, meaning it was completely normal..
    Did you know:
    Prophet Muhammadﷺhad only one wife, Khadijah, throughout the first 54 years of his life?
    Did you know she was widow?
    Did you know that she was 15 years older than him
    Heﷺspent his entire youth with her.
    Heﷺwas loyal to her until and after her death by keeping ties with her friends.
    But what about Aisha?
    Was she a child when she agreed to marry the Prophet Muhammadﷺ?
    ●[note1:it is prohibited] :
    It is stricty prohibited in Islam to marry someone before the age of puberty(Quran 4:6)
    ●[Note2:age of puberty *time *temperature ]:
    the age of puberty varies throughout different times and different places
    According to the scientific references: Girls might enter full-blown puberty anytime between ages 9 and 15.
    Also : The average temperature of the country is considered the chief factor with regard to menstruation and sexual puberty.
    ●[So: was Aisha, a child?]
    NO she was not!

  44. Islam is peace ,peace,peace and prophet Muhammad SAW is pure love to all mankind.he is the only prophet send to all mankind .respect to islam.

  45. disagree with the stage of number three when the prophet become a nation at the Allmadeena he had to ally the countries that surround it under terms and agreement ,but they be trade him and tried to assassin him and start a waragainst him ,so that;s therefor he fought back and won and took justice for their betrayal

  46. 3rd stage is to fight to spread Islam, and since at the 1st Muslims' time many unbelievers fought hard against Islam to keep them out of their lands. And did Muslims kill unbelievers whenever they found them at that time either? No

  47. Im sorry but, im gonna defend islam on this.

    I was born a muslim, raised in a muslim family, in egypt.
    of course, i knew arabic, and i memorized a lot of quran.
    But after that happened, a few years later, something made me become atheist only in front of myself.
    i hid it from everyone, even partially myself.
    i still prayed when i had to.
    and you know what made me not believe in some of it?
    Not a religion
    Not for nothing.
    But because of science.

    Science. why you ask? here.

    How was the earth created? The big bang.
    How did life start on earth, How do humans exist on earth, How do water and mountains and trees exist? Constant evolution starting from an unknown creature that is most likely extinct.

    No such thing as jesus, or mohammad, i hope you are aware that both religions are corrupted, and equally false. If they were true, and "god/allah" punished those who killed/enslaved muslims/christians with tsunamis and other events, sometimes "leading them to the right way", give me a valid reason why he stopped.

    And now, defending islam.

    As i said, i know arabic and i memorized a lot of quran, when i got access to the internet, i heard about translated quran, so i went and checked it out, and guess what, not a single word was correct from the arabic version.

    It went from "Forgive atheists and others, If they threaten you, Turn to your god and don't start war" To "Kill atheists and others, if they don't turn, or you will burn in hell with them"

    Its not accurate. it never will, the Quran is something that can't be translated correctly, and if it could, the media wouldn't do it.
    Religions are as corrupted as they seem, they are the reason of 10% of the world's wars, they brainwash people, and they aren't self-aware, islam isn't a religion of MAXIMUM peace, but it's doing its best.

    You wonder why we fast on ramadan for 16 hours? not because allah wants us to starve to death, or something.
    But because Allah wants the rich to feel like the poor, eating almost nothing everyday.
    And plus, on ramadan, multiple charities distribute food to the poor, and even give you numbers to call if you find a homeless trying to eat, AND IN THE WINTER, charities are collecting donations to buy blankets for homeless people, and buy some of them a house with a roof.
    if we were terrorists egypt and the middle east wouldn't be fighting isis, President of egypt, Abdel fattah, has set up multiple camps around the corners of the country to defend against Terrorists.

    And you know why Quran claims that muhammed married 4 women?

    Because they needed help, they were poor, helpless, and looking for the least amount of money.

    When muhammad married zeynab, she was poor, but then continued with him to a marketing success and riches.

    And i honestly don't know where people get their info about muhammad raping women from, if you have a source please reply with it, but not a translated version because these are false.

    Anyway, Peace will never come, nothing such as peace in this world anymore, the only way it can be peaceful if all living creatures and the changes they made to this world disappear, then the earth can be truly peaceful once again.

  48. People like this man is the main reason of terrorism. These guys use incorrect translation of Quran to mislead People and turn them into terrorists.
    The verse shown on 1:37 is completely mistranslated. In reality the verse says- " your deed and its result is for you and my deed and its result is for mine"
    It actually tells us not not interfere into other's matters unnecessarily. If you don't believe me you can check out on your own.
    And 2:15, the verse has been mistranslated here as well.
    Here Allah has told us to defend ourselves if and only if someone else attacks. Nowhere in the verse you'll find words like slay or slaughter. These people are using these types of words to spread out islamphobia.
    And the third part about offensive jihad. That thing happened only once . People who accepted Islam was forced to leave Mecca and after the Muslims became stronger they returned back to their birthplace. Since the Muslims were huge in numbers, the nonbelievers of mecca surrendered immediately. The battle was won without shredding a drop of blood. And after that prophet Muhammad (s) forgave all the oppressors and embraced them as brothers. Even he forgave the killer of his beloved uncle. That killer killed his uncle, took out his heart, and drank his blood. Yet, he didn't take revenge.
    So, I request please stop showing Islam as a religion of terrorism. It doesn't teach terrorism. People are misguided. In fact Islam has said us if cause any trouble to any other human being even if he is not Muslim we'll be punished in the afterlife. Islam also says " if anyone of you killed someone innocent, he literally killed the whole mankind".

  49. Hi guys can someone give their opinion on this- Scroll down (about half way) to case 2 on this webpage and give it a read The problem i have with this Muslim's response is that there are other verses in the quran that explicitely say bad things about christians and jews (e.g there is a verse that says christians and jews are the worst of god's creatures) surely these other verses refutes his argument here? What are other people's thoughts?

  50. Nice scripted video "Dr" . How much people that make a script & pay you to spread the lies about Islam gave you? Seem funny that idiot people was fall to this cheape acting skill. What kind of stupid people really buy this acting skill? You never understand Islam by just read it like that. Everything your learn need a guide for it. You cant learn Islam @ Al Quran by yourself. Someone need to teach you. But i dont waste my time to debate with ignorance person like you. You just did this for money afterall. You just actor btw with cheap acting skill. You must be desprate to be celebrity 😂

  51. Allow Me to Prove you Wrong!

    The Last Chapter Of The Quran is Surah Al-Maidah We know this By Looking at the Verse
    "This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion"
    Quran (5:3)

    In This Last Surah We Find the Command
    "O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do."

    But What it is the Definition of Justice according to Islam?
    Well Here it is

    "Allah does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you in the deen or driven you from your homes,or from being just towards them. Allah loves those who are just. Allah merely forbids you from taking as friends those who have fought you in the religion and driven you from your homes and who supported your expulsion. Any who take them as friends are wrongdoers."

    Quran(Surat al-Mumtahana, 8-9)

    and Sometimes Justice is not Peaceful But Does that mean it's Wrong?

  52. Islam is religion of evil, and Mohamad is prophert of the Lucifer! Why? Becouse GOD and JESUS never order kill all not muslims people for him!!! JESUS, hi is just only one way of thrue and love to GOD!! JESHUA – Ha Rishon ve ha Acharon, ha Alef ve ha Tav, Gibor ve Elion!! Ha Melech ha Mlachim!! AMEN!!!
