I was hearing a story that Umar (R.A) beheaded a imam ( person who call for prayer) as he was hypocrite in terms of respecting Prophet Muhammad (PBHH) . Is it true? I have heard Islam to be peaceful. For the context, following video tell more detail. ( it is in Urdu)

    You should elaborate the context in the wording of your question. For example there is another claimed incident where there was some hypocrite with a jew. Also I doubt anyone claims that Islam is pacifist. – UmH Jan 20 at 4:44
  • The incident of hypocrites reciting nothing but Surah Abasa is in e.g. Ihya' Ulum al-Din and Tafsir Rooh al-Bayan. – UmH Jan 20 at 12:49
