“I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them. It is not ye who slew them; it was God.” Surah 8:13-17.
“Fight against those who believe not in Allah nor the last day nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the people of the scripture, until they pay jiziah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Surah 9:29
“Fight them, until there is no persecution and the religion is God’s” Surah 193
“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them is on of them.” Surah 5:51 & 3:28
“Kill the mushrikeen (polytheists, Christians and non-Muslims), wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush”. Surah 9:5
“O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you; and know that Allah is with those who are believers.” Surah 9:123
“And fight them until there is no more fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every king of) worship is for Allah (alone).” Surah 2:193

These are just few suras (verses) from the Koran.
Islam has nothing to do with peace. EVERYTHING in Islam is by force.

"Is Islam a religion of peace?"

The big task here is to convince the faithful that the phrase allahu akbar is a mistranslation of the actual sentiment "aloha snackbar" then troll the crap out of them if they ever share their faith through social media.

"If you illiterate goat-lickers understood your religion as well as I do, you wouldn't believe any of it.""--blah blah blah

No. Hell no.

No religion is a religion of peace.

Even Jesus has a warring yin to his peaceful yang.

That is the nature of all religions. It is always one tribe against all other tribes.

Is Islam a religion of peace?

1. Islam is one of the three Abrahamic religions.

2. The god of the Abrahamic religions is Yahweh.

3. Yahweh was the tribal god of the Israelites.

4. Yahweh is essentially a god of war as can be seen throughout the OT.

5. Both Christianity & Islam claim to be religions of Peace.

6. A review of history/historical events shows the true nature of the people of the Abrahamic religions.

7. While each of the three Abrahamic religions have enjoyed limited and localized periods of peace, over all their nature is and has been one of war and violence.

Therefore the answer to the OP's question is: No. Islam is not a religion of peace.

There are peaceful Muslims and peaceful sects of Islam (yes, I am the one defending Islam. Weird, huh?)

However:

Muhammad was a rampaging, child abusing, mass murdering, psychotic, sexually perverted lunatic with delusions of grandeur, an insatiable lust for women and semen (he was covered in the stuff all the time), and wanted his pathetic ideology to dominate the entire world - and if violence is required for that, then, so be it.

So, to answer the question; no. Islam is not a religion of peace. And in fact, if humanity ever has a hope of attaining peace Islam must first be relegated to the annals of history.

Since you're in such an understanding and (sort of) charitable mood, I'm wondering if you could give some input on this outfit I'm thinking of...

but without the hand bag and sandals, I'm sticking with my shiny black army boots and matching black leather thigh bag...

My opinion of your ensemble and how good it looks is entirely dependent on the amount of tequila you ply me with Chaski... as always

And for all of you on TFS, both new and old, this is the correct answer whenever having discourse with me.

(...no... not the other kind of "course"... rude jerks... )

YES, Christianity is a 'religion' of peace. Actually, it is the only religion which promote peace in its full meaning.


Jesus said, “you shall love your Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it ‘You shall love your neighbor as your self. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets,” Mt22:37-40
“A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; as I loved you , that you also love one another, by this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another, John 13:34-35
“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come into him and make Our home with him.” John 14:23
“These things I command you, that you love one another.” John 15-17
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of judgment, but I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment “. Mt. 5:21-22
“Furthermore, it has been said, whoever divorces his wife let him give a certificate of divorce. But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery.” Mt 5:31-32
“You have heard that it was said, you shall love your neighbor and hate you enemy; but I say to you ‘love you enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those spitefully use you and persecute you.” Mt 5:43-44

“Love never fails.” 1 Cor 13:8
“For I have come not to call the righteous, but the sinners.” Mt. 9:13
“with all lowliness and gentleness, with long suffering, bearing one another in love.” Eph 4:2
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.” Eph 5:25

“For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” 1 Tm 6:10
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.” Mt 6:8

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you , not as the world gives I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27

Actually Buddhism and Jainism are the only religions which promote peace in its full meaning.

All of the Abrahamic faiths present war in their history and teachings and promote war to some degree.

Pretending that they don't promote wars is disingenuous at best.

Do as Muhammad says and not as Muhammad does

The more extensive and meticulous a religion's pupils are with their practices the greater the demonstration of how they do not trust themselves nor the thoughts and ambitions they keep inhibited.

chask, I refer to the written text of a faith, not to the behavior of some followers. Please, check the written words of each faith to reach a proven conclusion. Where does it say in any of the mentioned faiths "love your enemies"?
The Bible is FULL of such strong love teachings.

Yes, there are SOME teachings of love and forgiveness.

HOWEVER, The Bible is also FULL of strong hate teachings.

Perhaps you should read it... and by "read it" I actually mean read ALL of it from its first word to its last word, and study it, and while reading ALL of it >>> pay attention. Do not ignore the parts you don't like. Do not make excuses for the parts that present hate. Read it ALL and acknowledge fully what it says.

If you are of a mind and motivated, you should consider doing the same for the holy books of other religions.
