Here is a misunderstanding that needs to be educated.

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Freedom Rights or offensive rights

Submitted by A Muslim (United Arab Emirates), Feb 2, 2006 at 17:23

The verse which you refer of the Holy Quran is that when idol worshippers looted the Muslim's lands and wealth Allah ordered his Final Messenger Prophet Muhammed PBUH to fight against these non believers who have looted your wealth and This act is more than idoltory. It was not that Allah ordered ALL Muslims to fight againt Non Believers. Prophet Muhammed PBUH never encouraged Muslims to take swords on hands untill this verse was revealed on him to fight for your rights against the non believers and this resulted the Battle Of Badr in which Muslims won back thier lands and wealth and on that No unbeliever was taken prisoner. Prophet Muhammed PBUH ordered that any prisioner of war who will teach 10 Muslims to read and write will be released. What would you call this?. isnt this so human. Islam teaches the Laws to Live in this World not to Hate the Humans of the World. Please dont misunderstand this concept of the verse.
