Terrorism and Injustice

The Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) was against violence and would be exhaustive in seeking peaceful agreements with those who opposed him. Whenever there was a choice for him to forgive, he would take it. An honest study into his life history will show he was just, but extremely merciful and forgiving in nature.

Killing of innocents is completely forbidden in Islam. The Quran also teaches:


…Allah does not forbid you (muslims) to deal with kindness and fairness to those who have not made war upon you on account of religion, or expelled you from your homes: Very Allah loves those who act with fairness.
(Quran 60:8)


‘Jihad’ is a word which means ‘to struggle’ or ‘to strive’. It is also used to refer to military struggle organized by the head of an Islamic state. If a Muslim nation is at war, defending against aggressors, Muslims in that nation will consider themselves in Jihad, struggling for their religion, people and land. This is a normal right of any nation. However, acts such as suicide bombings and indiscriminate killings are heinous injustices that are completely forbidden in Islam.
