Islam is a religion of violence…..Islam is the only religion that preaches violence….Islam is anti-west…Islam is bla bla bla…
I really don’t know why most of the guys I met here on Ebaby and wrote such sentences have no interest  or desire to hear the other side, they only wish to mock, ridicule, dispute, disprove, and nitpick. What is the reason?  Is it fear or hatred? Or Islam is a religion of violence?
I have made it a point not to waste  time reasoning with such people, but my answer will be for those who are willing to learn. Those will be considered as truly humans. It is difficult for me to regard as truly human someone  who is ignorant and has no desire to learn.
People claim that Islam teaches us to kill everyone. Let us examine this claim by giving some examples of the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. The prophet who was the embodiment of the teachings of the Qur'an.
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was born in Makkah to a tribe called the Quraysh. When he began to call the people to Islam at the age of 40, his followers were persecuted.
The tribe of Quraish the were archenemies of Islam and, for a period of thirteen years while he was still in Mecca, they would rebuke the Prophet, taunt and mock him, beat him and abuse him, both physically and mentally. They placed the afterbirth of a camel on his back while he prayed, and they boycotted him and his tribe until the social sanctions became unbearable. They plotted and attempted to kill him on more than one occasion, and when the Prophet escaped to Medina, they rallied the majority of the Arab tribes and waged many wars against him.
The Pagans waged war against the Muslims numerous times, until finally, the Muslims managed to conquer Makkah with 10,000 men in a bloodless victory. Prophet Muhammad gave the orders: "He Who enters the house of Abu Sufyan [the leader of the Pagan forces] will be safe, He who lays down arms will be safe, He who locks his door will be safe".
After that, he said: "There is no God but Allah. He has no associate. He has made good His promise that He held to his bondman and helped him and defeated all the confederates. Bear in mind that every claim of privilege, whether that of blood or property is abolished except that of the custody of the Ka'aba and of supplying water to the pilgrims. Bear in mind that for any one who is slain the blood money is a hundred camels. People of Quraish, surely God has abolished from you all pride of the time of ignorance and all pride in your ancestry, because all men are descended from Adam, and Adam was made of clay."
Then he asked the people: “O people of Quraish! What do you think I will do to you?
Hoping for a good response, they said: “You will do good. You are a noble brother, son of a noble brother.”
The Prophet then said:
“Then I say to you what Joseph said to his brothers: ‘There is no blame upon you.’ Go! For you are all free!.”
If Islam teaches us to kill. Why then, when  prophet Muhammad defeated the very people he had fought for most of his life, who had been willing to chase him to the ends of the Earth, had he allowed them not only to live, but forgiven them as well?
The Quran says: “Keep to forgiveness (O Muhammad), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant.” [7:199]. It also states: “Good and evil are not alike. Repel evil with what is better. Then he, between whom and you there was hatred, will become as though he was a bosom friend.” [41:34]
In another instance, a Jewish man named Zayd bin Sana came to the Prophet of Islam to reclaim a debt. He grabbed the Prophet by his robe and cloak, pulled the Prophet close to his face, and said, ‘Muhammad, are you not going to give me my due? You and your clan Banu Muttalib never pay debts on time!’ Umar Bin Khattab, one of the companions of the Prophet, got agitated and said, ‘Enemy of God, am I really hearing what you just said to God’s Prophet. I swear by the One who sent him with truth, if I were not afraid that he would blame me, I would have taken my sword and cut your head off!’ The Prophet looked calmly at Umar and censured him gently:
“Umar, that is not what we needed to hear from you. You should have counseled me to pay my debts in time and asked him to seek repayment in a respectful manner. Now take him, repay him his debt from my money and give him an extra twenty measures of date.” [Ibn Kathir, ‘al-Bidaya wal-Nihaya,’ vol 2, p. 310]
The lives of non-Muslims matters to the Muslims. Not all non-Muslims are the enemies of Islam, and should be treated with the respect due to them.
Prophet Muhammad: “Whoever kills a person with whom we have a treaty, will not come close enough to Paradise to smell its scent, and its scent can be found as far as forty years of travel [away].” [Saheeh Al-Bukhari]
Imagine that. Paradise is forbidden to a Muslim if he kills a non-Muslim with whom is a peace treaty.
And here is another Hadith. Prophet Muhammad said: “The obligation imposed by the covenant is communal, and the nearest Muslim must try hard to fulfill it. Anyone who violates the protection granted by a Muslim will be under the curse of God, the angels, and all people, and on Judgment Day no intercession will be accepted on his behalf.”[Bukhari]
 My answer is not perfect. There’re many other questions to be answered about Islam, but I need some coffee right now.

Mr. Zanaz

Your blog is completly wrong.

Islam is the only one religion for peace & love which is selected by Allah whilst others by human beings. ( Innadin indal Islam.......)

No doubts, some declared that Islam is so and so........because some muslims who are the one who defame Islam with bad names and that one prophecized by our beloved prophet 1400 years back. Just refer Islamic history and recognize them who are they.

Best regards,
