RIGHTEOUSNESS

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: QURAN 'S TEACHING

Submitted by Mohamad Nozzi (Singapore), Apr 9, 2009 at 19:54

Quran 2:193, "...fight...If they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression". The phrase, those who practise oppression, in Quran 2:193 certainly refers to those people still remain in fighting spirits. The phrase, let there be no hoslitity, is mentioned in Quran 2:193 with the phrase, if they cease, if implies that we, Muslims, must not have any hatred with us when we stop as a result that the other parties stop fighting with us. In which religions that would teach us not to have hatred at the time when the fighting is over. Certainly! None of other religions could be holiest than Holy Quran. The reason is simply that a person could never stop immediately his/her hatred with someone who has just fought with you. Yet the Holy Quran demands us to discipline us in such a way that we must not have any hatred to other people immediately once the other parties stop fighting with us. From the verse here, you can easily see the righteouesness that Allah wants us to achieve.

However, Muslim extremists have acted against this verse in such a way that they still stir up the spirit to fight even though non-Muslims have ceased their fighting.
