Almost a month has gone but there is no reply from you. As I said earlier blaming with closed eyes by convincing through media/anti-islamic material is very easy but to find truth is quite difficult. I know you cannot not find your claim in the holy Quran since you said its written million times in Quran to kill non-muslims. Anyway, I tell you the truth what is said there which is always quoted out of context by the anti-islamic groups to convince people like you.

SURAH 9: AL-TAWBAH (The Repentance)

  1. A (declaration) of immunity from Allah and His Messenger, to those of the Pagans with whom ye have contracted mutual alliances.
  2. Go ye, then, for four months, backwards and forwards, (as ye will), throughout the land, but know ye that ye cannot frustrate Allah (by your falsehood) but that Allah will cover with shame those who reject Him.
  3. And an announcement from Allah and His Messenger, to those people (assembled) on the day of the Great Pilgrimage that Allah and His Messenger dissolve (treaty) obligations with the Pagans. If, then, ye repent, it were best for you; but if ye turn away, know ye that ye cannot frustrate Allah. And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith.
  4. (But the treaties are) not dissolved with those pagans with who ye have entered into alliance and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor aided any one against you. So fulfil your engagements with them to the end of their term: for Allah loveth the righteous.
  5. But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular Prayers and practice regular Charity, then open the way fro them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
  6. If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah; and then escort him to where he can be secure. That is because they are men without knowledge.
  7. How can there be a league, before Allah and His Messenger, with the Pagans, except those with whom ye made a treaty near the sacred mosque? As long as these stand true to you, stand ye true to them: for Allah doth love the righteous.

They quote Ayah No.5 out of context saying that its written "to kill them wherever you find Kafir (non-muslim)" but they don't have courage to quote Ayah No.6 where it is said "If one ask asylum grant it and escort him to where he can be secure". This is the situation where War is declared with those who broke peace treaty and during War which Army General order for asylum and escort enemy to the secured place? But Allah(swt) who is most merciful to the human being giving them chance.

I request humbly to my misled brothers & sisters to read the holy Quran atleast once to find out truth, otherwise this life is very short, once its gone, then there will be no more chance to repent. At another place Quran says:

The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things).

Until ye visit the graves.

But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality).

Again, ye soon shall know!

Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!)

Ye shall certainly see Hell fire!

Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight!

Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!).

AL-QURAN (Surah 102)

May Allah (swt) show us right path…………..Aameen
