A reply from a Muslim..
America- the land of the free, liberty, where God sheds his grace on thee? The land of tolerance? Battling all racism, prejudice, small-mindedness?
I thought racism was just a past and something in history books.
Hatred and ignorance for Muslims and Islam is pathetic.
I am an American, and I am a Muslim. I’ve been studying MY religion my entire life. My source for Islam is the Al-Qu’ran not Faux News. First of all, the Qu’ran does NOT tell us to kill. Why do anti-Islamic people love taking out verses referring to specific battles and use it against us? I remember the verse in the Bible where Jesus says: “I have come not to bring peace, but a sword.” See how horrible that sounds? But, I know that’s not what Jesus is trying to say. See how much taking things out of context can distort the meaning? I can easily take out passages from Mein Kamf to make Hitler’s actions seem justifiable.
Consider these verses from the Qu’ran:
“If you will stretch forth your hand towards me to slay me, I am not one to stretch forth my hand towards you to slay you surely I fear Allah, the Lord of the worlds.”
“Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice.”
“Do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression.”
“If ye kill an innocent, it is as ye has slain all mankind, and if ye save one life, it is as ye has saved the lives of all mankind.”
Sharia Law also shows up. Sharia Law cannot be forced on people who don’t want to follow it.
The Qu’ran affirms freedom of religion. There are Muslim majority countries which are secular such as Turkey, Azerbaijan, Tunisia, Mali, Malaysia, Indonesia…
“And if your Lord had pleased, surely all those who are in the earth would have believed; will you then force men till they become believers? And it is not for a soul to believe except by God’s permission; and He casts uncleanness on those who will not understand.” — This verse from the Qu’ran is very clear on freedom of religion.
“Say, ‘The truth is from your Lord’: Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject it.”
Terrorism does not have a religion. If it did, why don’t we blame Christianity for KKK killing, burning, shooting, hanging so many blacks, Catholics, Jews? What about killing Native Americans who didn’t convert to Christianity huh? What about the Inquisition? How about the Crusades when the Crusaders massacred the Jews? And, the persecution of Jews since they killed Jesus Christ by the Christians? How about the blowing up abortion clinics?
Can’t you see this is what happened to the Japanese people also after the attack on Pearl Harbor? How Japanese people were put in camps?
I am a Muslim. I am an American. I love America with all my heart. This is supposed to be the land of freedom and religion tolerance, and PEACE. It breaks my heart to see Americans scapegoating Muslims and blaming all of Islam for 9/11. Please, please.. I hope they stop their hatred towards us. I’m sure Jesus Christ would not have approved. We are merely human beings just like them.
