    Is Islam a Peaceful Religion?

    "And if you are slain or die in the way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all they could amass." (Surah 3:157)

    The prophets said, "the person who participates in (holy battles) in Allah's cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and his Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr)." (Hadith 1.35)

    There are other such verses in the Koran, Hadith, and other Islamic writings. And yet, President Bush said "Islam is a peaceful religion."

    The problem is that few people in the Western world have read the Koran.

    What do you think? Is the Islam a peaceful religion?

    Allmost all religions are based on violent, homicidal, hugely offensive ideas, in addition to the "nice" bits.

    This one is no different. Like most Christians however, most Muslims are peaceful and honest.

    Like any demographic. People are just people, we are all the same.

    Exactly right m8! I know a few muslims here who are really nice people, as well as jews, christians, etc.....all the same.

    Even the christian and jewish bible have verses in them that are pro war or pro violent. It's just the nutters that take that shit so seriously, well, they are the ones that blow shit up, or fly planes into buildings.

    I liken these radicals to the old Spanish Inquisitors, who tore through Europe killing everyone who didn't see things quite like them. (They were Catholic Christians)


    Cheers, Pokey

    No religion is more peaceful or more violent than any other religion in itself.

    However, people practicing a certain religion can be violent and they usually have no problem finding support for it in various texts, regardless of which religion they practice.

    At this point in time, we do have a problem with violent people practicing Islam, but blaming that on Islam itself is making it too easy for yourself. But since a lot of people like easy explanations (requires less thinking, I suppose) we hear a lot of talk about "Islam not being a peaceful religion". Even from the terrorists themselves, which kind of proves how stupid that assumption is.
