Islam is not evil

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Umar G (United States), Aug 14, 2002 at 00:29

Just a few comments from a 12 year muslim.

A strict interpretation of the Qur'an and sunnah, enjoins Muslims to be fair and just, compassionate, and generous. Killing any human being, unless it be a legal punishment for a crime with a death penalty (after due process), or a combatant in time of war, is prohibited. Even is a time of war, woman, children, and noncombatants are not to be harmed. When the enemy wants to make peace, we are to make peace with them.

This is what Islam teaches. Regarding the verses quoted in previous comments, please look them up and read the verses before and after them to put them in context. They refer to killing the enemy in time of war, and the killing stops once peace is made.

I dont expect you to believe me, but please check these things out for yourself. As the Quran says, truth stands clear from error.
