Islam is not War

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: Does ISLAM want war?

Islam is justice. There is no peace without justice, and without justice there is no peace. There is no room for the realist mentality that dictates "the end justifies the means." There is a code that sharia and sunnah dictate to Muslims how to obtain justice. First in their hearts, then by their tongues, then by their hand. I think Muslims really need to concentrate on step one right now and purify their hearts, but the strive for justice should never stop.

The Prophet Muhammad, may God's peace and blessings be upon him, said: "Whoever goes to sleep, and wakes up without concern of the affairs of the Ummah, then he is not one of us"

The Prophet Muhammad, may God's peace and blessings be upon him, also said: "Whoever killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims, shall not smell the smell of Paradise though its smell is perceived from a distance of forty years."
