Is Islam a Terrorist Religion?


Not in the least. Islam strictly condemns the use of violence against innocent lives. There is no justification in Islam for terrorism. Targeting the lives of innocent civilians and their property through suicide bombings or any other means of attack is haram (impermissible), and those who commit these acts are criminals, not martyrs.

The Qur’an states in this regard: “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

Respect for persons of all faiths and backgrounds is integral to Islamic principles. As it has been said by Imam Ali (a.s.): “People are divided into two groups. Either they are your brothers in faith, or your brothers in humanity.”
