They have to keep telling us, because this is so obviously false, it can only be put across by constant repetition.
“We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.” (Qur’an 3:151)
“When your Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast terror into the unbelievers’ hearts; so strike above the necks, and strike every finger of them!” (Qur’an 8:12)
“Make ready for them whatever force and strings of horses you can, to strike terror thereby into the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them that you know not; Allah knows them. And whatsoever you expend in the way of Allah shall be repaid you in full; you will not be wronged.” (Qur’an 8:60)
“Then, when the sacred months are over, kill the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.” (Qur’an 9:5)
“Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, and do not practice the religion of truth, even if they are of the People of the Book — until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” (Qur’an 9:29)
“Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill, and are killed; that is a promise binding upon Allah in the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Koran; and who fulfils his covenant truer than Allah? So rejoice in the bargain you have made with Him; that is the mighty triumph.” (Qur’an 9:111)
“Islam has nothing to do with terrorism: Imam of Kaba,” IANS, April 2, 2016:
The Imam of Islam’s holiest shrine Kaba in Mecca in Saudi Arabia on Saturday denounced terrorism in the name of Islam, making it clear that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism.
“Holy book Quran and Hadish – saying of Prophet Mohammad are against violence and terror. Islam has nothing to do with terrorism or terror acts,” said Sheikh Saleh Bin Muhammad Bin Ibrahim Aal Talib at a crowded press conference at a posh hotel here amid tight security.
He said violence has no place in Islam. “Islam is what Quran and Prophet Mohammad stand for, it is not what terrorists or terror outfits claim.”
Without naming terror activities by the Islamic State (IS), Al Qaeda and other terror organisations, Sheikh Saleh said Islam is against the killing of innocent people and creating terror.
“These days some terror outfits have been killing innocent people and using suicide bombers to kill people are wrong and have nothing to do with teaching and preaching of Islam,” he said.
Sheikh Saleh said that killing of innocent people and use of suicide bombers to kill people are ‘haram’ in Islam. “What happened in Brussels and other places, where innocent people were killed, Islam has nothing to do with it.”
Stressing on the need for peace and harmony across the World, he said: “Muslims are the main victim of terrorism. Large number of Muslims in Muslim countries have been killed.”
Sheikh Saleh said Islam is a religion that guarantees security of life of the people. “Islam stands to protect five things including human life,irrespective of regions and religions across the World.”
He said that the name of God means peace, safety and security. But some people are trying to defame Islam. “Even there is no force permissible in Islam in the matter of religion. There are no words to use force to convert people to Islam.”
Sheikh Saleh said that Saudi Arabia is working to end terrorism is accepted by western countries also. The country is facing terrorism for the last 20 years. “Terrorism has harmed Saudi Arabia.”
Earlier, Sheikh Saleh addressed a gathering of people, mostly Muslims, on ‘Islam and World Peace’.
He was slated to visit Patna on Friday but his visit was postponed after as he was denied a visa by the Indian embassy in Saudi Arabia.
