The chronologically first verses about jihad revealed in Qur'an are (22:39-40) in those it can be seen that a call for war was allowed for Muslims based on an act of self defense and because of the justness of the cause! As I wrote in my comment: This means the Muslims were only allowed to fight non believers when they have been suppressed and abused and ...

Before we answer any question, we examine it to see if there are any inaccurate statements being made within that question and clear that up. First, it's not Islam that is aggressive, and it's not all Muslims that are aggressive either (for just one example, see the Muslim community in England's reaction to three murdered young men during the horrific London ...

First, I don't know of any serious community leader "demanding" this privilege in the West. By and large this is something Western Muslims take in their stride as a necessary consequence of living here. In fact all the scholars that I know in the West counsel patience and information, not demands for privilege. Secondly, you frame your question about ...

There are some verses which give us a different idea. Comments like "sell your cloak and buy a sword" and "I did not come to bring peace" are not entirely pacifistic comments; and one of his close companions was Simon who was a revolutionary zealot!! That aside, even if we assume that Jesus was anti-war and a pacifist, this was only for the time period that ...

In regards to spousal abuse changing the doctrinal position, the answer is no. Prior to entering Jannah, all potential causes of a future dispute will have been settled: عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ:‏ إِذَا خَلَصَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ مِنَ النَّارِ حُبِسُوا بِقَنْطَرَةٍ بَيْنَ الْجَنَّةِ ...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم As much as I made research, I couldn’t find the precise phrase as you mentioned that you said: May our lives be sacrificed for Prophet Muhammad ﷺ And apparently, this phrase “May our lives be sacrificed" can be used as a modern phrase. Although it could be feasible to be used at that time as well. On the whole, it is solely ...

The hadith has many versions from different narrators: Abdullah b. 'Umar reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: The Jews will fight against you and you will gain victory over them until the stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; kill him. Ibn 'Umar reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa ...

Islam claims itself as the ideology of peace and humanity. Meanwhile, Islam is linked to terrorism, violence and extremism by global media. Why? For whatever reasons, there are people who commit terrorism in the name of Islam. Terrorists facilitate the linking of terrorism and Islam by journalists by acting in highly visible ways, e.g.: Islamic State's ...

At the first place, there is no hitting each other in anger in Islam. Everyone is supposed to be patient and forgive each others' deeds. Hitting is not the solution. Although, this is a bit out of context, but I thought could be helpful, And if you fear dissension between the two, send an arbitrator from his people and an arbitrator from her people. If ...

According to Islam, you cannot do more than the disadvantage which the second person caused …. (apparently) But I assume it is better to mention that according to the holy Quran, : «ادْفَعْ بِالَّتی‏ هِیَ أَحْسَنُ» Fend (repel) the hardness(badness) by goodness Of course seemingly according to Islam, (in the mentioned issue if someone hits you), ...

Every book needs a guider. Quran itself says that it needs an interpreter, to exactly avoid such confusions Quran has 6236 verses, it's a TERRIBLE mistake to take out a single verse without cross checking its meaning with the other 6235 verses. Something which ignorant people do and then kill people. I mean why doesn't this question include the other verses ...

No, according to Quran (chapter 60, verse 8): {Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes - from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly} ِAnd Quran chapter 2, verse 190: {Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do ...

My impression is that Answering Christianity is exploiting ambiguity: Wife beating any time and for any reason is never allowed in Islam. By writing "any time" and "any reason", it's natural to read the sentence as if it's universally forbidden, which is an unorthodox stance. It goes against these example fatawa: IslamWeb, Islam Q&A, Zam Zam Academy,...

Divorce in islam is allowed for a reason, which is specially to protect women from this kind of behavior, here is a quote from al-islam.org, a direct answer to your question : It may be asked: What must a wife do if her husband beats her, does not provide her nafaqah, makes life hard on her, does not correctly perform his sexual duties, torments and ...

There are many verses which says, catch them, kill them, slaughter them but... To understand those verses, you need to read before and after to clarify the context of the matter. Specially people talk about Surah Tawbah 9/5: And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in ...

Walakum assalam, You are correct that it is prohibited to hit the face as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, as narrated by Abu Hurayrah: “When any one of you fights, let him avoid (striking) the face.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 5/215) Now as far as your question, well this would be considered a sin, with no ...

there are 2 types of the lesser, Fard Kifaya (offensive, not obligatory. such as expanding into new land) should not take place. while Fard Ayn (defensive and obligatory(not sure if to all or just to those who are males and "able")) should take place. an example of this would be the Syrian army fighting off daesh during Ramadan. ramadan as well as the ...

The Hadith depicts a certain time in the future, the context is not mentioned so we don't know much except the fact that this is prophesied to happen.

I get your point. First of all the cleric who gave such statement must bring out proof to validate his statement. If he does not provide a agreeable proof then his statement is nothing but a means to provoke an unwanted division or problems in India. Also if Lord Shiva is a messenger of Allah, this message would have been informed in Quran or Hadith's. As ...
