Why don't Muslims ever blame their holy texts for the violence Muslims commit?
Quran (48:17) - "There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom." Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means 'spiritual struggle.' Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?
Quran (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."
Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.
Quran (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah"
Quran (9:20) - "Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah's way are of much greater worth in Allah's sight. These are they who are triumphant." The "striving" spoken of here is Jihad.
Quran (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."
Quran (48:29) - "Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves"
Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah'.
Tabari 9:69 "Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us"
-Bing/Google search “civil wars in the world” and determine where they are being fought; then research each civil war and determine who is fighting in them. The results are startling: 90% of them involve one combatant-religion -- Islam. Muslims extremists fight in civil wars against Hindus, Sikhs, Jews, Shamans, Copts, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Christiana, animists and Confucians and all other non-Muslim entities. They fight in China, Russia, Bosnia, Cyprus, Macedonia, Israel, Pakistan, India, Indonesia-Ambon & Halmarhera, Côte d'Ivoire, Kashmir, Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Kurdistan, Kirghizia, Nigeria, Philippines, Somalia, Turkey, Chechnya, Sudan, Yemen, Thailand, Uganda, Azerbaijan, Mali, Chad, Libya, Bangladesh and East Timor.

The statement number (9:123) is the most violent statement regarding peaceful co-existence of different religious communities side by side in this world. But the problem is, whenever you mention it to them, they will somehow explain its validity. This is not only a problem with Muslims, it is a problem with almost every religion or sect or ism of this world. Everyone tries to make valid their unjust and illogical statement in some way or the other. But the main problem is every ism is changeable we have seen that in the history of mankind. But this is one religion, which is very strict in this regard that not a single line can be changed from the book. Even the Marxism says that when situation arises, they have to adopt to that situation. I don't understand how our leaders talk about "Peaceful co-existence" or "Brotherhood" with hidden hatred in somebody's pocket? Until and unless they edit and rectify those hateful words, how can they talk about peaceful co-existence or secularism ? Kazi Nazrul Islam, an eminent poet of Bengal has written in one of his poem that "We are two flowers in one bud---Hindu & Muslim". This type of lines may sound sweet, but if you place the (9:123) statement side by it, what will you find? You will find that the Hindu neighbours who are living near the Muslim neighbours in the same locality are Idol-worshipers, and as they are not believers in Quoran, the Muslim should fight with those innocent Hindu neighbours and the Hindu neighbours should see hardness in Muslim fighters as such. This is totally unacceptable. If they cannot edit their hatred statement, there is no way of friendship with them. And social, economical, religious boycott should follow as a rule. In this world, where every country is depending on almost every country in some way or the other, this boycott may not work. But inside minds, secretly, this boycott will always remain until they wipe out their hatred statements. The Muslims should know this truth that people may talk about peace, love, and other sweet words, but the real thing they should know that a social separation will always be there drawing a boundary line between Hindus and Muslims for the above mentioned reasons. So, what is needed that they should rectify themselves first and then talk about peace, love, and brotherhood.

I don't feel they're an precise chance to Islam, but there's no doubt that the politically motivated machinations of Bin laden and al Queda have given Islam very bad publicity and indisputable harm. The ideology of al Queda and bin weighted down is centered on a politically stimulated adgenda and it is as some distance eliminated from the ideas and beliefs of the great majority of Muslims as the ideology and political motivation of the Christian fundamentalist terrorists comparable to Timothy McVay is from the usual Christians philosophy and ideology. We ought to don't forget additionally that they,(al Queda) are representing an awfully tiny group of radical fundamentalists with industry and political connections and adgendas ~ they have got contacts within the easiest locations of business and govt in the U.S.A. For illustration the Bush family has maintained advisory and business dealings with the Bin weighted down family for many years and this has been endured regardless of the 9/ll tragedy. Correctly G.W.'s brother was once at a assembly in ny with the Bin encumbered family representaves in the course of the morning the terrorist attack on the dual Towers occured. It must even be remembered that in each principal terrorist attack there have also been Muslims among the victims. The Qu'ran immediately teaches us that it is incorrect and sinful to damage civilians and nowhere does it inform us that martyrdom is a sure technique to Jannah. Actually,it teaches us that lifestyles is the sacred gift of Allah (swt) and must be valued above all matters, like the Bible it condems suicide and the taking of life besides in absolute self defence.

Muslims will never accept their mistakes, because they believe that everything in the Quran is good, and they will defend it to the point that they would lie(Al-Taqiya) to disbelievers(Kafirs).
You can never clean a mind of a brainwashed person, these people follow primitive un-evolved Arabic lifestyle which is very different to the modern world. There is NO such thing as Islamic culture, just Arabic culture, which is renamed as Islamic culture. Islam destroys culture wherever they are taken. They destroy old Buddhist temples, synagogues, and churches, and replacing it with Arabic culture.
It's hard to believe but 40% of Muslims are radicals, you seldom see peaceful Muslims, when they're the majority they will eradicate the non-Muslim minority just like what they are doing in Syria today, they kill non-Sunni Shias & Christians and want to replace Syria's moderate society into an Islamic hell hole like Iraq & Pakistan. 50% of wars & terrorism is caused/inspired by Islam.Source(s): Visit www.TheReligionOfPeace.com to be updated on the Islamic killing spree list.

Context context and context and yes we will keep on repeating this till you get it right. The message of God must be taken as a whole instead of trying to find holes in it. There are none :)

Every verse is connected to one another and there is also a full information and explenation for EACH verses (called Asbab An-Nuzul). Those terrorist are not muslims!
- RuchjatLv 77 years ago
Salam No most Muslims do not blame the holy book Qur'an text itself for violence committed by Muslim terrorists but we blame Muslims who misinterpreted jihad in the Qur'an

To use such terms whether out of context or not, shows the kind of allah muslims worship.

You twist the meaning and translation so bad! I'm getting the following translations from several websites, (not from your corrupted Anti-Islamic websites)....they all have same exact translation and wording etc:
"There is not upon the blind any guilt or upon the lame any guilt or upon the ill any guilt [for remaining behind]. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger - He will admit him to gardens beneath which rivers flow; but whoever turns away - He will punish him with a painful punishment."
I don't see anything wrong in this ayah..?
"And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors."
Do you know what cease means? It means to stop fighting, treaty, both quit, etc. In the end it says if they cease then there is no aggression except on the oppressors! That means if they treaty with us or don't fight us in the first place....then there shall be no fighting between the two! ITS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU IN BLACK AND WHITE! Fitnah means defamation.
"And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers."
It says God will punish them. Once again I don't see anything wrong in this verse. But again, you Anti-Muslims always change the interpretation and meaning of verses.
"[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, 'I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."
If you actually look at the verses previous before this and following this, this is talking about in times of war. This surah is called Surat Al-Anfal which means Spoils of War. This is directly talking about during wartimes in this verse if you look at the surrounding verses.
"And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah . And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do."
Stop leaving out "if they cease" all the time. You're doing that on purpose so you can make a point that's based off of lies.
"The ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives are greater in rank in the sight of Allah . And it is those who are the attainers [of success]."
Do you know what the hell Jihad means? I didn't think so. You only listen to what your corrupted sources, media, and government tell you.
"O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous."
Once again, refer to the previous verse and the following verse and you'll only find that YOUR interpretation is wrong.
"Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration. That is their description in the Torah. And their description in the Gospel is as a plant which produces its offshoots and strengthens them so they grow firm and stand upon their stalks, delighting the sowers - so that Allah may enrage by them the disbelievers. Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds among them forgiveness and a great reward."
You didn't want to put the rest of the verse because it ruins your hypocrisy, doesn't it? I don't even need to explain to you. Just read the real translation from every real Islamic source by yourself.
No space to type hadith here. But refer back to Qur'an always. So stop being such a liar and committing fitnah!
Hypocritical person, hypocrite. You twist meaning of everything to fit your desires.

You're taking these quotes out of context. It's like pulling some random words out of a book.
I love to eat vegetables.
You're doing this: "I love to eat." So, this person sounds gluttonous. However, if you were to finish the entire sentence, you'd see that this person is healthy.
Read the entire Quran before making your assumption. Make sense? :-)
