No end to this cruelty

Today the world is facing great threats of terrorism. Thousands of innocent people have been killed and still there seems to be no end to this cruelty. Some blame Islam as a religion of grave terror and bloodshed. But, in reality, there is no connection between Islam and terrorism at all; Islam is as closely related to terrorism as light is to darkness or life is to death or peace is to war. Islam very strongly condemns terrorism and encourages establishing peace and order in the land.
However, one cannot deny that on many occasions some Muslims are found involved in terrorist activities either individually, on behalf of a group or on behalf of a country with a predominately Muslim population.
But let it be very clear that we do not justify terrorism of any kind whatsoever, whatever the colour, religion, sentiment or objective the terrorist may claim to represent. Islam does not approve of disorder in any form. Islam does far from teach terrorism. It teaches rule of law, obedience to the authorities and does not let anyone take the law into his own hands. The Holy Quran states:
“O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey His Messenger and those who are in authority over you.’ (Ch.4: V.60)
The Holy Quran states that “those who create disorder in the earth, they are the real losers”; “and commit not iniquity in the earth, creating disorder”; “and Allah loves not disorder”. Such words and phrases are found in the Holy Quran repeatedly.
After this clear teaching such terrorist actions of some Muslim individuals or groups have no cover or justification at all, and they must be condemned widely. And those who are involved must be brought in front of justice.
As far as Islam is concerned, it categorically rejects and condemns every form of terrorism. It does not provide any cover or justification for any act of violence, be it committed by an individual, a group or a government.
The Muslim Community, which is a peace loving and law abiding community, strongly condemns all acts of terrorism anywhere in the world.We join in spreading a message of peace, love, harmony, tolerance and brotherhood.
We reject and condemn all acts and forms of violence and terrorism unreservedly and totally, because it is our deeply rooted belief that not only Islam but also no true religion, whatever its name, can sanction violence and the bloodshed of innocent men, women and children in the name of God. God is love, God is peace!
Love can never beget hatred, and peace can never lead to war.

Growth of Terrorism 

​Education and Poverty do not adequately explain the growth of Terrorism. While Terrorism through the ages was associated with Political demands, the current Terrorism is strictly Religion based with followers wanting to use religion by injecting it into Politics and the political structure. The demands of this kind of Terrorism is that it impinges and infringes on the Civil and Human Rights of the population and like a Cancer destroys society, taking a heavy toll on innocent lives in the process. The use of Religion as a tool to try and control people, stop their empowerment and use it for Power grab is dangerous. It is dangerous because it acts as an opiate to create illusion and delusion and derail the process of rational thinking.

Are terrorists humans? 


Yes, they are but they kill humanity in inhumane ways.It’s a mistake to simply label terrorists as “evil” or psychologically deranged – in fact, psychologists who have studied terrorist groups have found that terrorists tend to be stable individuals, not paranoid or delusional. What seems to make terrorists essentially different from others is their ability to “switch off” their sense of empathy in service to their beliefs and goals.

Empathy and compassion seem to be natural for human beings. It’s natural for us to feel for the sufferings of others, and to respond with a desire to alleviate their suffering. If you lack the ability to empathise, then it’s very likely that you could be diagnosed as a psychopath.
To become a terrorist means disengaging this natural empathy, so that a person can treat certain other human beings .. the members of the groups he feels he is fighting against …as objects, and kill them without remorse. It means seeing members of those groups as fundamentally “other” and refusing to connect with them. It is only a complete lack of empathy which makes it possible for one human being to behead another.
Terrorism is the symptom of a sick society; and like any competent doctor will tell you, the only way to get rid of a symptom is to treat the disease. Popping pain-killers will not cure you of the headache if it’s caused by a tumour in the brain. Just agonising about how horrible the pain is will not make a whit of difference so far as the underlying tumour is concerned.

some people will hurt you everytime..so?????

For some right intentions do not always mean the right results.your impact may be different and harm the other person.or it could backfire and harm you which in good intended missions happen….have experienced both in the recent past…and it isn’t pretty good….we should all probably strive for a holistic view rather than believe things will fall into place with just the right intention…and not the hurt some responses of selfish others… … .but I have been burned by doing this too many times so now I have just learned to mind my own business. If it isn’t something that directly affects me or impacts me, then I have learned to keep my nose out of it. For most people even when you think that you have their best interests at heart they aren’t going to appreciate what you are trying to do for them anyway, so why even bother? most of the time you will just get chewed out so I have even stopped going to all of the trouble for nothing. I figure that if they need help they will ask, and if they don’t then I am better off keeping to myself.
