CHRISMARTIN from India stated: "Terrorism presently has become a daily occurence activity especially in few countries like Afghanisthan and Pakistan . Its vicitims majorally are those without means and belonging to poor section of society.Good citizens of any religion would never hamr anyone. The basic cause of terrorism is feeling of insecurity and injustice.The solution to these terrorist attacks is to identify those who are spreading violence and secure and safeguard our future today." Let me express my views on this topic: Most Islamists do not accept that there are unwarranted "terrorists" among Muslims. Sheer unwarranted terrorism, killing innocent lives is not acceptable in Islam, as it is criminal. BUT study these words of Allah in the Quran that determines the persona of a good Muslim: Qur'an 20:8 "Allah! There is no Ilah (God) save Him. His are the most beautiful Names. To Him belong the most beautiful attributes." Qur'an 20:14 "Verily, I am Allah. No Ilah (God) may be worshiped but I. So serve you Me, and perform regular prostration prayer for My praise. Verily the Hour is coming. I am almost hiding it from Myself." So, as far as orthodox Muslims are concerned there is ONLY ONE god and he is ALLAH, and no other god may be worshipped. So to ensure that only Allah is worshipped he has these verses for his people: Qur'an:9:88 "The Messenger (Muhammad) and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah's Cause." Qur'an:9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers(non-Muslims) wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war." Qur'an:9:112 "The Believers (Muslims) fight in Allah's Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed." Qur'an:9:29 "Fight those who do not believe (non-Muslims) until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission." Ishaq:325 "Muslims, fight in Allah's Cause. Stand firm and you will prosper. Help the Prophet, obey him, give him your allegiance, and YOUR RELIGION (ISLAM) WILL BE VICTORIOUS." Qur'an:8:39 "Fight them (NON-MUSLIMS) until all opposition ends and All SUBMIT TO ALLAH." Then to reinforce this doctrine Allah gives the following command: Qur'an:2:216 "Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims), though you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and like a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not." [Another translation reads:] "Warfare is ordained for you." IT IS THE DUTY OF EVERY MUSLIM, regardless of origin or state of wealth or education, serve Allah by "fighting in Allah's cause,"- ISLAMIC JIHAD. And the ultimate sacrifice a Muslim can make for Allah is to die as an ISLAMIC MARTYR. (NOT AS A TERRORIST, BUT AS A JIHADIST MARTYR.) This is the main difference that people do not understand about Islam, that Muslims are dedicated and are prepared to die for Islam. Thus to be a Good Islamic citizen of an Islamic country, every Muslim must be prepared to "Fight in Allah's Cause." Muslims feel that it is an injustice for anyone not to be a Muslim and thus they feel justified to declare Jihad against all non-Muslims. All, non-Muslims are enemies of Islam and the proof is here: Qur'an:9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war." So please understand, chrismartin who said, "The solution to these terrorist attacks is to identify those who are spreading violence and secure and safeguard our future today." The spreading of violence and dissension is ALL COMING FROM THE QURAN, the Word of ALLAH. No one, especially a Muslim, will dare challenge the word of Allah.
