Verse from the Qur'an no one quotes: ". . Do not take life, which God has made sacred" (6:151). Or, “…if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of humanity.” (5:32). Interesting how actually reading the Qur'an will broaden our understanding of Islam, instead of mindlessly listening to garbage spewed by the media & other unreliable sources. amirite?

It would be interesting to see a post that pulled negative quotes and see what score it gets.

My World History teacher started off the school year last year with a unit on Islam for that exact reason. Also, it's really annoying when Christians and Jews call Islam a fake religion, because they worship the same god, just in different ways!

Remember that there is a difference between Sharia law and the islamic teachings.

@ronkidonkey Remember that there is a difference between Sharia law and the islamic teachings.

Any law that's written in the Qur'an and sayings of Prophet Muhammad are what make up Shariah Law. However, it's given such a terrible name and people often make up barbaric things about it and sometimes take Arab countries as the example for it. NO Muslim country follows the correct shariah law, they mix it with culture. That's why it's been misunderstood.

" إذ يوحي ربك إلى الملائكة أني معكم فثبتوا الذين آمنوا سألقي في قلوب الذين كفروا الرعب فاضربوا فوق الأعناق واضربوا منهم كل بنان"
وهذا من القران الكريم!

و من هم الكفار؟ أي واحد لا يؤمن بالايات الله نزل على محمد، الذي حب الموت من أي مؤمن غير.

"محمد، من كم هو لا يحب اليهود، قال "ولقد علمتم الذين اعتدوا منكم في السبت فقلنا لهم كونوا قردة خاسئين

obviously for the Arabs on this.
The verse above translated for you English speakers out there (and this is my translation, not the shitty ones you get from Quranic websites)
"Verily, your LORD has inspired the angels to give strength (strengthen) those who believe, upon saying to them (those who believe) 'I am with you', I will cause (A very peculiar form of 'strike') terror into the hearts of the non-believers; therefore, strike them on their necks (a bit above) and also cut off their fingers".

Do you know who the non-believers are? Those who do not believe in Muhamma...

oh wow! look guys, we have an expert on the religion of Islam! even taking the liberty to translate the Holy Qur'an in his very own words!

firstly, you have no authority to translate the Qur'an in your own words. it takes YEARS for SCHOLARS to find accurate translations of the Holy Qur'an and for you to simply write one up based on your own biased beliefs in not going to cut it.
secondly, any discussion on Qur’anic verses that refer to violence would be meaningless, without a study of the surrounding context. you cannot just pluck a verse out of any chapter and have it stand alone, it is both unfair and illogical.

when read in context, the verses do not even remotely suggest an exhortation for Muslims to be vicious or hateful towards people of other faiths. far from this, the Qur’an actually requires that Muslims conduct themselves with fairness and dignity in all matters, and especially in regard to interfaith relations, as indicated by the following verse:

“Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just. [Al-Qur'an 60:8]

I take it you don't speak Arabic.
Alright, since you request it from a different translator...

[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."- Sahih International. Tell me that my translation was wrong.

Killing someone without reason but "Kaffarah" is unreasonable, unfair and illogical. When is killing ever right, exactly? From the point of view of a modern Muslim, tell me.
Anyways...What you have here is a contradiction, and a mighty unsettling one at that.

I do speak arabic, but you are not giving me any source. which surah? what ayah? you haven't provided either of those.

Killing someone for simply not believing in the religion of Islam is forbidden.
“…take not life, which God hath made sacred, thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.” [Al-Qur'an 6:151]

the Qur'an clearly states:
“Fight in the cause of Allah THOSE WHO FIGHT YOU, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth NOT transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from WHERE EVERY THEY Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (FIRST) fight you there...” [Al-Qur'an 2:190-191]

so as a modern Muslim, my answer to you is simple: self-defense.

The Qur'an was revealed section by section. This was during the time of Prophet Muhammad. Verses that speak of battle and war were revealed during the times of war in Mecca/Makkah, when the Arabians attempted killing Prophet Muhammad and the Muslims. Don't shoot out verses that are put out of context, and cherry picked from the Qur'an. Ever thought of reading the whole chapter? Also, a Muslim must follow 8 rules when it comes to war or battle. Just to clear your frustration and lack of understanding:

1) Do not commit treachery
2) Do not deviate from the right path
3) Do not mutilate dead bodies
4) Do not kill children
5) Do not kill women
6) Do not kill the elderly
7) Do not harm or burn trees
8) Do not destroy buildings

This is Shariah Law. It's quite sad to see that it's given such a horrible name. People make up the most idiotic things about it. No one seems to go into the actual, authentic laws.

@Actions speak louder than words

I'm afraid that cliché proveb doesn't really work in this situation. the Holy Qur'an is the book Muslims follow, read, and gain lessons from (just like the Bible for Christianity and the Torah for Judaism).
the religion of Islam says that terrorism, violence, and the killing of innocent people is absolutely forbidden. those who commit those acts in the name of Islam are simply not following true Islamic teachings. basically you can't judge Islam based on imperfect followers, read what the religion actually preaches instead of looking at people who don't really know anything about the religion

I think it also says that you can beat and lock your wife in the bedroom for days if you think she might leave you..
