THERE IS NO ‘ISLAMIC TERROR’
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
Peace and Blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad his family and companions
Those who blindly address terrorism as ‘Islamic terrorism ‘ do not have active intellect. They are either doing bigotry a work to demonize Islam for various reasons or just copy pasting jargon used by Western media.
As there cannot be ‘love hate’ or let’s say ‘Ishq hate’, ‘Muhabbat Duhsman ‘etc, there cannot be ‘Islamic terror ‘, because terror is the opposite of Islam (state of tranquillity) .
It is impossible for hot and cold to be together, fire and water in one bowl!
So saying ‘Islamic terror ‘ only expose one’s own lack of intellectual integrity, and ethical behaviour towards a faith that begin it’s statement with Peace (Salam) Mercy (Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem) and blessings (Baraka)
In simple words, if we says: Define terrorism :
According Outreach Islam, “Terror/terrorism a state of bloody violence against civilians of all faiths, against Muslims and non-Muslims and is the absence of Islam- which (Islam) means a state of Peace, mercy and tranquillity “
Quran Warns about Terrorists:
Quran 2: 8-12
And of the people are some who say, “We believe in Allah and the Last Day,” but they are not believers.
They [think to] deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not.
In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.
And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.”
Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah) declares war on terror 1400 years ago!
Sahih Bukhari Narrated Yusair bin ‘Amr: I asked Sahl bin Hunaif, “Did you hear the Prophet saying anything about Al-Khawarij?” He said, “I heard him saying while pointing his hand towards Iraq. “There will appear in it (i.e, Iraq) some people who will recite the quran but it will not go beyond their throats, and they will go out from (leave) Islam as an arrow darts through the game’s body.’ ” (Book 84, Hadith 68)
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: When ‘Ali was in Yemen, he sent some gold in its ore to the Prophet. The Prophet distributed it among Al-Aqra’ bin Habis Al-Hanzali who belonged to Bani Mujashi, ‘Uyaina bin Badr Al-Fazari, ‘Alqama bin ‘Ulatha Al-‘Amiri, who belonged to the Bani Kilab tribe and Zaid AI-Khail At-Ta’i who belonged to Bani Nabhan. So the Quraish and the Ansar became angry and said, “He gives to the chiefs of Najd and leaves us!” The Prophet said, “I just wanted to attract and unite their hearts (make them firm in Islam).” Then there came a man with sunken eyes, bulging forehead, thick beard, fat raised cheeks, and clean-shaven head, and said, “O Muhammad! Be afraid of Allah! ” The Prophet said, “Who would obey Allah if I disobeyed Him? (Allah). He trusts me over the people of the earth, but you do not trust me?” A man from the people (present then), who, I think, was Khalid bin Al-Walid, asked for permission to kill him, but the Prophet prevented him. When the man went away, the Prophet said, “Out of the offspring of this man, there will be people who will recite the quran but it will not go beyond their throats, and they will go out of Islam as an arrow goes out through the game, and they will kill the Muslims and leave the idolators. Should I live till they appear, I would kill them as the Killing of the nation of ‘Ad.” (Sahih Bukhari Book 93, Hadith 527)
Sahih Muslim: Jabir b. Abdullah reported that a person came to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) at Jirana on his way back from Hunain, and there was in the clothes of Bilal some silver. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) took a handful out of that and bestowed it upon the people. He (the person who had met the Prophet at Ji’rana) said to him: Muhammad, do justice. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Woe be upon thee, who would do justice if I do not do justice, and you would be very unfortunate and a loser if I do not do justice. Upon this Umar b. Khattab (Allah be pleased with him) said: Permit me to kill this hypocrite. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: May there be protection of Allah! People would say that I kill my companions. This man and his companions would recite the Qur’an but it would not go beyond their throat, and they swerve from it just as the arrow goes through the prey. (Book 5, Hadith 2316)
Sahih Muslim : Abu Said al-Khudri reported: ‘Ali b. Abu Talib sent to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) from Yemen some gold alloyed with clay in a leather bag dyed in the leaves of Mimosa flava. He distributed it among four men. ‘Uyaina b. Hisna, Aqra’ b. Habis and Zaid al-Khail, and the fourth one was either Alqama b. ‘Ulatha or ‘Amir b. Tufail. A person from among his (Prophet’s) Companions said: We had a better claim to this (wealth) than these (persons). This (remark) reached the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) upon which he said: Will you not trust me, whereas I am a trustee of Him Who is in the heaven? The news come to me from the heaven morning and evening. Then there stood up a person with deep snnken eyes, prominent cheek bones, and elevated forehead, thick beard, shaven head, tucked up loin cloth,and he said: Messenger of Allah, fear Allah. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Woe to thee. do I not deserve most to fear Allah amongst the people of the earth? That man then returned. Khalid b. Walid then said: Messenger of Allah, should I not strike his neck? Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: Perhaps he may be observing the prayer. Khalid said: How many observers of prayer are there who profess with their tongue what is not in their heart? Upon this the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I have not been commanded to pierce through the hearts of people, nor to split their bellies (insides). He again looked at him and he was going back. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: There would arise a people from the progeny of this (man) who would recite the Qur’an glibly, but it would not go beyond their throats; they would (hurriedly) pass through (the teachings of their) religion just as the arrow passes through the prey. I conceive that he (the Holy Prophet) also said this: If I find them I would certainly kill them as were killed the (people of) Thamud. (Sahih Muslim, Book 5, Hadith 2319)
‘Ali said: Whenever I narrate to you anything from the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) believe it to be absolutely true as falling from the sky is dearer to me than that of attributing anything to him (the Holy Prophet) which he never said. When I talk to you of anything which is between me and you (there might creep some error in it) for battle is an outwitting. I heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as saying: There would arise at the end of the age a people who would be young in age and immature in thought, but they would talk (in such a manner) as if their words are the best among the creatures. They would recite the Qur’an, but it would not go beyond their throats, and they would pass through the religion as an arrow goes through the prey. So when you meet them, kill them, for in their killing you would get a reward with Allah on the Day of judgement. (Book 5, Hadith 2328)
Muslims are Commanded not to Seek Revenge, but to Seek Justice through the Government and Ultimately from God Almighty:
Sunan Abdu Dawood : Narrated abu Musa al-ash’ari: The apostle of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:before the Last Hour there will be commotions like pieces of a dark night in which aman will be a believer in the morning and an infidel in the evening, or a believer in the evening and infidel in the morning. He who sits during them will be better than he who gets up and he who walks during them is better than he who runs. So break your bows, cut your bowstrings and strike your swords on stones. If people then come in to one of you, let him be like the better of Adam’s two sons. (Book 35, Hadith 4246)
At the end of this article you have understood that:
1- Islam do not command to kill innocent people (people those who are not declaring war against your people)
Quran 5:32 whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
2- Islam forbid Muslim public to take laws in their own hands!
Quran 4:59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.
3- Islam forbid corruption oppression and injustice
Quran 6:82 They who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice – those will have security, and they are [rightly] guided.
4- Muslims must be vigilant against corrupters of their religion!

On the authority of Abu Saeed Al-Khurdari, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say: “Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith.” related by Muslim. Book 1, Hadith 79)

7- Islam is to obey Allah and to obey His Messenger and those who are in authority among you!.
Muslims must listen and obey even if an ethiopian is appointed as their leader!. See Sahih Bukhari Book 88 and 89
8- Islam says Murder of innocent people is from a Jahiliya age (period of ignorance) see Sahih Bukhari Book 88!
Sahih Bukhari: Narrated Jarir: The Prophet said to me during Hajjat-al-Wida’: Let the people keep quiet and listen. Then he said (addressing the people), “Do not (become infidels) revert to disbelief after me by striking the necks (cutting the throats) of one another (killing each other).” (Book 3, Hadith 122)
9- Islam defines Muslim as the one from whose hands and tongue the people are safe!
DESCRIPTION OF THE MUSLIM/BELIEVER:
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (Peaceand blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: “The Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand the people are safe, and the believer (i e aMuslim who attained excellence in Faith-Mumin) is the one from whomthe people‘s lives and wealth are safe“ (Sahih/Most authentic)
From the Book: Sunan An-Nasa’i , Chapter: The Book of Faith and it’s branches. Hadith Number 4998.
10- Islam provide theological and jurisprudential declaration of war against terrorism!
Quran 5:3 This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion. But whoever is forced by severe hunger with no inclination to sin – then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful
Peace be upon the Prophets and Messengers of Allah
