First of all, we have two questions in need to be answered. Is Islam a religion of peace or war? Is the sword its way to spread, or are there many ways based on persuasion and love? These two questions carry the same meaning, is Islam a religion of peace or war? Peace and Islam are derived from one word; peace (assalaam). And it is one of the attributes of God (the Almighty). Muslims try to come closer to God – by calling him with this name – in praying and supplication, and they name their children with it (Abdel…

Modern government has defined the term terrorism as the use of violence by individuals or groups to achieve political targets. The most common way of terrorism is targeting innocent civilians. Although its misnomer, the modern world use the term Muslim terrorist to describe Islam as a terrorist religion. However, the values of Qur’an hold the Muslim responsible for treating all people, Muslims and non-Muslims, justly and kindly. Moreover, the Qur’an goes beyond that; killing a person is one of the most obvious examples of mischief. God says: “on that account We prescribed for the seeds of Israel that whoever kills…

Suicide bombing is instance in which a person straps explosives onto his body and detonate them in a crowded public area (usually an act of terrorism). Islam forbids suicide bombings. God, Glory Be To Him, says “And don’t kill yourselves. Surely God has been Ever-Merciful to you. And whoever performs that in hostility and unjustly, then we will eventually roast him at the fire; and that has been for God an easy (thing).” (An-Nisa`) (4:29,30).

Muslims are amazed and startled with the claim that Muslims are intolerant with other faiths, as history witnesses the tolerant nature of Islam. As a matter of fact, other religions are more secured under Islamic Rule. Furthermore, throughout the Qur`an, Muslims are reminded that they are not the only ones who worship God. Jews and Christians are called People of the Book, meaning people who have received previous revelations from the One Almighty God that we all worship. The Qur`an also commands Muslims to protect not only mosques, but also monasteries, synagogues, and churches… (They are) those who have been…

Muslims are accused of intolerance to homosexuality or lesbianism which the modern world considers it as alternative life-style personal preference or a natural variation. But, even if Islam did not introduce anti-gay legislature, the texts of Torah condemns these acts. In addition, the side effects of these acts as AIDS are enough making them evil and dangerous to society since the spread of AIDS was concentrated among homosexual community. In Islam, these acts are learned not inborn because if God made people homosexuals then they are not responsible but God is exalted above any kind of injustice or haphazard actions….

Islam establishes great principals to protect the properties of others. It punishes those who commit the crime of theft with amputation. But, the punishment of amputation is not implemented in all cases. There are many cases in which the thief is pardoned from amputation as during the times of famine or if the worker stole from his boss who withhold his pay or when the property was public property or the value of property is less than certain amount or if the property was not kept in proper place. But in case of implementing the punishment of amputation, the organ…

But it prohibits the sale of organs where performing of such operations is available only in private health facilities not public ones. It means that only the rich will benefit from such operations. This process forces many peoples…

Cloning is the process of reproducing populations of genetically-identical individuals whether animals or humans. It is believed that the first time we hear about cloning was in 1997 when Dr. Wilmut called that he had successfully cloned a sheep named Dolly from the mammary cell of an ewe. Islam encourages the use of science to find cures to diseases, developing medicines and anything for the betterment of human lives without harming others. Cloning can be used to save human lives. Most Islamic scholars did not object gene-manipulation in vegetables for the benefit of human lives as there is no harm…
