In the name of Allah the most merciful and most gracious
Muslims Wiki was created to highlight the culture, contributions, and the beauty of the Muslim ummah. Islam is a beautiful religion – a religion of peace and moderation. While the image of Islam has been marred by religious fanatics, the fact is Islam has nothing to do with terror or terrorizing people.
Every religion has a minority extermist wing that try to force others to adopt its dogma through violence. But the reality is that they represent an outlier. One cannot define a group of people by the actions of the minority.
Islam in essence promotes peace and moderation. Islam does not allow preemptive strike or aggression. The term ‘Jihad’ has wrongly been equated with Islamic holy war or terrorism. Jihad in fact means working hard and striving to spread Islam through peaceful means.
In the Quran, our God Allah Almighty has stated:
“And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon Allah. Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.” (Surah al-Infal; 8:61)
“Permission is granted to those who are fighting because they have been oppressed…those who have been expelled from their homes without any just cause…” (Surah al-Hajj; 22:39-40)
“Fight in the way of Allah those who are fighting against you; and do not exceed . Verily Allah does not love those who exceed.” (Surah al-Baqara, 2:190)
The medieval Islamic scholar Ibn al-Qayyim has stated about our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Peace be Upon Him):
‘Never did he force the religion upon anyone, and he only fought those who waged war against him and fought him. As for those who entered into a peace treaty with him, or concluded a truce, he never fought them, nor ever coerced them to enter his religion, abiding by his Lord’s order: There is no compulsion in religion. True guidance has become distinct from error [2:256].’
The intent of creating this website is to aggregate the Islamic knowledge and present a more enlightened and peaceful view of Islam.
We hope you find this website informative and useful. And thank you for your time and patience in understanding the message of islam presented in this website.
Peace and Have a good day!
