Once again Abdul Rahman refers to Quran verses which have already been explained by Muslim Scholars.

Abdul Rahman you said:

Qur'an 8:12 "I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle."


Qur'an 8:57 "If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned."

Qur'an 8:67 "It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughtered in the land."

Mr. Rahman didn't you forget to mention the fact that these verses are from the Chapter called The Spoils of War. Abdul Rahman why didn't you mention the whole of 8.12 because it says:

When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite there necks and them of each finger. (The Noble Quran, 8:12)

Allah in the above verse is telling us how he sent down angels to help Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to his first victory against the pagan of Arabia. The battle was named Battle of Badr in which only seventy unbelievers were killed half of whom were killed by Ail's sword. The verse cannot be used for terrorism because the Battle of Badr took place in a battlefield where they no women and children.

Again you didn't mention the whole of 8.57 it says:

Those of them with whom thou madest a treaty, and then at every opportunity they break their treaty, and they keep not duty (to Allah).

If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.

And if thou fearest treachery from any folk, then throw back to them (their treaty) fairly. Lo! Allah loveth not the treacherous. (The Noble Quran, 8.56-8.58)

In 8:56 it is saying that those enemies that the Prophet made treaty with then break it and then make war against who should fight them back. Then in 8.58 it says that if they what to make another treaty with you who should make one with them fairly.

Again who didn't mention the whole of 8.67 which says:

8:66 Now hath Allah lightened your burden, for He knoweth that there is weakness in you. So if there be of you a steadfast hundred they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a thousand (steadfast) they shall overcome two thousand by permission of Allah. Allah is with the steadfast.

8.67 It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land.Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty and Wise.

8:68 Had it not been for an ordinance of Allah which had gone before, an awful doom had come upon you on account of what ye took.

8:69 Now enjoy what ye have won, as lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

8:70 O Prophet! Say unto those captives who are in your hands: If Allah knoweth any good in your hearts He will give you better than that which hath been taken from you, and will forgive you. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (

The Noble Quran, 8.66-70.)

So clearly Mr. Rahman you are telling nothing but lie about Islam.
