Esmeralda the meaning of mischeif is as follows...

Mischief/Terrorism is an outrageous attack carried out either by individuals, groups or states against the human being (his religion, life, intellect, property and honour). It includes all forms of intimidation, harm, threatening, killing without just cause and everything connected with any form of armed robbery, hence making pathways insecure, banditry, every act of violence or threatening intended to fulfil a criminal scheme individually or collectively, so as to terrify and horrify people by hurting them or by exposing their lives, liberty, security or conditions to danger; it can also take the form of inflicting damage on the environment or on a public or a private utility or exposing a national or natural resource to danger.

All these are manifestations of the mischief in the land, Allah has prohibited Muslims from committing. Allah says in the Qur'an:

"Obviously, in view of the enormity of such acts of aggression, which are viewed by the Shari'ah (Islamic law) as an act of war against the laws and the creatures of God, there is no stricter punishment anywhere in the manmade laws.

And seek not occasions for mischief in the land: for Allah loves not those who do mischief. " (28:77)

Moreover, according to the Islamic Fiqh Council, there are various forms of terrorism, which include state terrorism, the most conspicuous illustration and the most heinous of which is practiced in Palestine today by the Israelis, and by the Serbs in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo.

According to islam terrorism is the most menacing to security and peace in the world,

In Islam, both the individual and the community are exhorted not only to tow the line of moderation, but likewise, to root out extremism and religious intolerance which are sure to destroy the mankind.

The Prophet (peace be on him) said in a report by Imams Ahmad and Al-Nissaie: With regard to the Dhimmis (Non-Muslims living under Muslim protection), Islam ordered that they must be treated justly.

Whosoever carefully studies the two sources of the Shari'ah (Islamic law), namely the Book of Allah [the Qur'an] and the Sunnah (Traditons) of Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him), would discover that they are devoid of any import of extremism, acts of violence or terrorism because a few people make war, and hundreds suffer.

Esmeralda, you also stated that the prophet p.b.u.h was anything but compassionate, you say this on the basis of reading or hearing something you did not even understand or read in full. first get your facts straight woman, and dont you dare insult our beloved prophet for he did not rape jewish girl safiya, show me evidence from the quran or hadith stating he raped her, and was a bad man, as your so quick to jugde. Here are the facts, that have been twisted and edited to add to the prefereces of peoples false agendas. Here is Umm al- Mu'minin, Safiyyah, relates those moments WHEN SHE HATED THE PROPHET FOR KILLING HER FATHER AND HER EX-HUSBAND. The Prophet APOLOGIZED TO HER saying, "Your father charged the Arabs against me and committed heinous acts," he apologized to the extent that made Safiyyah get rid OF HER BITTERNESS AGAINST THE PROPHET. (Al-Bayhaqi, Dala'il an-Nubuwwah, vol. 4, p. 230,

Safiya fell to the lot of Dihya al-Kalbi as a war prisoner. The Prophet (pbuh) redeemed her from Dihya and her dower consisted in her emancipation. The Prophet (pbuh) proposed marriage to her which she accepted and became a Muslim. It appears that the Prophet (pbuh) wanted to soften the hostility of the Jews by entering into blood-relationship with them as he had done in the case of Bani Mustaliq.

Commenting on this marriage, W. Montgomery Watt writes in his work Muhammad at Medina: There may also have been political motives in these unions with Jewesses Safiya.

Marital rape you were saying is justified, cut the crap and get you facts straight my luv. VERSES TAKEN FROM AUTHENTIC HADITHS. Or "It is a vice in a man to assault his unprepared wife, seeking to satisfy his own lust and leaving her before she could achieve her own fulfillment…" Imam al-Ghazali in his Ihya' (vol. 2: 49-50) has mentioned

"It is a rude manner of a man to proceed to have intercourse with his wife without first playing with her."

So in the light of this, we came to realize why Islam lays much emphasis on the concept of mutual love between spouses; why the Glorious Qur'an made it clear that "It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love).

Marital rape however, involves a series of devastating occurrences, often spanning years. When you are raped by your husband, you have to live with your rapist!

The relations between the spouses should be based on tranquility, love and mercy. Allah says, "And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect." (al-Rum 30:21)

You might turn around next and question me on jihad which not terrorism btw!

In Islam, Jihad is ordained to uphold right, repel injustice and establish justice, peace, security and clemency, with which the Prophet (peace be on him) was sent to take mankind out of darkness into light. More specifically, Jihad has been ordained to eliminate all forms of terrorism, and to defend the homeland against occupation, plunder and colonialism.

Jihad is waged against those who support others in driving out people out of their homes, as well as against those who are in breach of their covenants. Jihad is meant to avoid tempting away Muslims from their faith or restricting their freedom to conduct peaceful propagation of their religion.

Allah said:

"Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for your faith, nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: For Allah loveth those who are just. "


"Allah only forbids you, with regard to those who fight you for your faith, and drive you out of your homes, and support others in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). !t is such as turn to them in these circumstances that do wrong." (Qur'an 60:8-9)

Islam has crystal clear rules and provisions that forbid the killing of non-combatants, innocent persons, such as the elderly, women and children; pursuit of fleeing persons, slaying persons who have surrendered, injuring prisoners, or mutilating the bodies of the dead, or destroying structures and buildings that have no

connection with combat. Now you know 9/11 was not an (islamic) attack! Just a word of advice, the site faithfreedom, jihadwatch, islamthereligionofpeace, and many more are anti islam sites, they incite hatred in peoples hearts and and minds and encourage apostacy.They edit verses from the quran and hadith to blind people of the truth and show barbaric scenes. I apologize if i have offended you in any way Esmerald, but i feel strongly about my religion and was extremely offended when you wrote those blasphemous untrue words about the prophet p.b.u.h.

Furthermore i would just like us all read full verses of the quran or hadith and understanding them before jumping to conclusions and criticising someone or something.
