Introducing Islam
by Suhel Farooq Khan

Does Islam teach violance?

Not at all - Islam is the most peaceful religion in the world.

The word Islam is derived from the Arabic root-words Silm and Salam meaning Peace.
Islam and Muslims always promote peace.

The typical Muslim greeting Assalmu ‘Alaykum means May peace with you. Its reply Walaykum Assalam means May peace be with you too.

Islam considers violence as one of the worst crimes. In Islam, killing an innocent is like killing entire humanity. (Qur-an 5:32)

Muslims, the followers of Islam, lead their lives in accordance with the simple, logical and peaceful guidelines laid down by the Qur-an and the traditions of
(Peace be upon him), the last Messenger of God; with an objective to make this world a better place to live.

Islam, the embodiment of peace, provides a complete code of life covering every aspect of it through these guidelines and there is absolutely no room for any irrationality like violence in Islam.

Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his companions, the early Muslims suffered the worst physical and mental persecution by the Quraysh of Makkah but they never used violence in retaliation. They forced Muslims to migrate to Madinah, leaving their homes and entire belongings.

Following the Truth, Muslims conquered Makkah without shedding any blood, only eight years after their migration.

Muhammad (Peace be upon him), the last Messenger of God, pardoned even his worst enemies who had abused, humiliated and tortured him for almost 20 years and even plotted for his death; in an unprecedented show of mercy, compassion and kindness in line with the Islamic traditions of maintaining peace.

It is in sharp contrast to the many developed nations, who had indulged in the mass annihilation of innocent native races after invading their lands, only for material gains.

Islam allows fighting back in self-defense, but prefers those who can forgive their tormentors.

Islam had introduced, defined and practiced human rights more than 1,400 years before the term was even coined by the West.
