A Non-Muslim Asks: Is Islam PEACEFUL?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Gibril F Haddad

Greetings, You say that Islam is a peaceful religion. Please tell me why Arafat and Saddam Hussein and bin Laden  and the Ayatollas and Hamas are all hell-bent on  destroying the Jews and the Christians of the world? Are they not Muslims who are trying to destroy Jews and Christians?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Arafat and Saddam to my knowledge are not Muslims but secularists. Bin Laden may be a private Muslim person but is unqualified as a Muslim leader as explicitly stated by Mullah Omar himself: http://www.upi.com/print.cfm?StoryID=10122001-072256-7017r 

Some Ayatollahs may have the opinion to say but not their principal leader at this time, the president of Iran who is one person of wisdom and moderation worth a million Blairs and Bushes. As for Hamas, they are the product of Israeli terrorism. Remove the latter and you will cut their lifeblood.

If you are seriously interested in the true Islamic position on terrorism read: http://webpages.marshall.edu/~laher1/TERRORISM.HTML     

Peace to those who follow guidance.
