Quran Promotes Peace

Reader comment on item: [The Need to Name and] Know Thy Terrorists

Submitted by Muhammad Idrees (Pakistan), Feb 24, 2004 at 23:39

This is in response to Iqbal C (an Indian Muslim living in USA for the last 35 years). My opinion is that Quran promotes peace, not violence. These are the readers of Quran who cannot understand the real spirit of the Quran. First thing is that Quran should be read in context with ground realities at the time when an Ayat was revealed. The people who read Quran out of context normally get misguided and go astray. The prophet of Islam (PBUH) dis-allow to interpret Quran according to ones own will. The interpretation should be strictly according to the famous taffasir (books of interpretation) of Quran.

So the wrong is with the deviated muslims who interpret the Quran according to their own will. These people want some political/financial benefits by acting on the wrong interpretation of Quran.

It is required that we should make clear to non-Muslims that a true Muslim is always a peaceful and loving person who loves human beings as they are also the creation of the God. At the end I will advise brother Iqbal C to re-examine his opinion after studying the Quran in the light of some famous tafsir (interpretation) as done by early Muslims.
