Is Islam that evil?

Assalamualaikum (Peace Be Upon You) 

I always believe in this statement, "Every good things will always facing obstacles in it progress".Same goes to Islam. Recently,I became very interest with other religions,Hindu,Buddha and Christian (but of course,it's NOT because I'm doubting the truth of Islam,Lailahaillallah Muhammadurrasulullah,There is no God except Allah,and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the Messenger of Allah).


I've been following a discussion about religion from last year.I heard lot of different opinions that came from different people from vary religions.But,what make me interest the most is when those non-believers spread bad words about Islam.They keep repeating the same arguments about Islam is a religion of terrorist, oppressed women and yada yada yada..They even insulting Al-Quran and post verses from Quran just to mislead peoples' impression towards Islam.

I even found sites that list how evil Islam is.So,these are my arguments towards them:


1."Islam is a religion of terrorist"


They keep saying this,even make slogans about that..So,if Islam is a religion of terrorists,what do you call other religions? Those who killed all the innocent peoples,kids,women all over the world.It's quite funny when Nazi killed Jews long time ago,nobody relate it to religion.Funny how media all over the world twisting the fact when Palestinians was trying to protect their country from the real terrorist,those Palestinians have been labelled as Terrorists. Funny how nobody relate the World War I and World War II with any religions. Funny how the incident 9/11, media all over the world quickly put the blame on the Muslims.


They claimed Islam is a religion of terrorist and they even use a verse from Holy Quran that said :


"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day ... " Quran 2:29


Why cant they mentioned THE WHOLE VERSES AND NOT TAKE ONLY SMALL PART OF IT? This verse was directed to those non muslims that want to live in Muslim land but refuse to follow Islamic rules and what make it worse,they want to fight Islam and be enemy to Muslims.


"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge 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. "Quran 2:29


Islam give people freedom to choose any religion that they want.It can be seen clearly in Chapter 109 of Holy Quran,(The Disbelievers, Atheists)


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 


1. Say : O ye that reject Faith! 

2. I worship not that which ye worship, 

3. Nor will ye worship that which I worship. 

4. And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, 

5. Nor will ye worship that which I worship.

6. To you be your Way, and to me mine. 




Islam never ask it followers to threat non Muslims badly.Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him,also taught Muslim to be kind to all people no matter what their race or religions.


Prophet Muhammad (saw) treated everybody, friend or foe, with kindness and taught his companions to do likewise. It is reported by Abu Basra Ghifari (ra) that when he was a non-believer he came to Madinah and stayed as a guest of the Messenger of Allah (saw). He drank milk from all his goats at night but the Prophet (saw) did not say a word. That night he and all his family slept hungry.


There is also another proof from numerous proof on how kind he,Prophet Muhammad towards the non-believers.


In the valley of Hudaibiyah while Prophet Muhammad (saw) was saying the morning prayer with his companions, seventy or eighty non-believers came down quietly from the mountain of Taneem in order to kill the Muslims during prayer. They were caught and brought before him. He treated them well and released them all. 


Whoever said,Muslim always give harmful threat towards non-believers is completely telling lies. Islam is the religion of peace. You can practice your religion including spiritual and physical religion acts as long as you didn't create war towards Islam.


Islam is a peaceful religion.It can't be deny from the laws of war in Islam.

  • Muslims are forbidden from attacking others who do not attack them
  • Fighting in the cause of GOD Almighty those who fight us is what "Jihad" is all about. We can't go and kill a non-Muslim just because he is a non-Muslim. That is absolutely forbidden in Islam.
  • Jihad can only be declared when the Muslims are attacked. Muslims are not allowed to attack those who do not attack them. And even when war breaks out, if the enemy offers an honest peace, then we should accept it and end the blood shed
  • And if a treaty of peace was made, then we must honor that treaty to the end.
  • Do no betray or misappropriate any part of the booty
  • Do not practice treachery or mutilation.
  • Do not kill a young child, an old man, or a woman. 
  • Do not uproot or burn palms or cut down fruitful trees. 
  • Do not slaughter a sheep or a cow or a camel, except for food. 
  • Leave people who have set themselves apart in hermitages to accomplish the purpose for which they have done. 



I think,I'll continue my other argument next time.Last but not least,don't misuse the word 'Jihad' as an accuse to call Muslims as terrorist.

Jihad is not only refers to physical fight,in fact,it brings lot of other useful meanings.To make it simple,let me break it down into a list:

  1. Personal Jihad : This is the most important form. This type of jihad, called the Jihadun-Nafs, is the intimate struggle to purify one's soul of evil influences -- both subtle and overt. It is the struggle to cleanse one's spirit of sin
  2. Verbal Jihad: To strive for justice through words and non-violent actions.
  3. Physical Jihad: This relates to the use of physical force in defense of Muslims against oppression and transgression by the enemies of Allah, Islam and Muslims.
