[ANCESTRY OR SCHOLARLY WORSHIP IN ISLAM - SALAFISM]
One main difficulty Rasul Mohammed faced in his mission was convincing his people to abstain from sticking to ancestors and scholars. This called was not fully heeded to by even those who accepted Islam much to talk of those that rejected and remain skeptical, so these belief system gradually becomes a norm in islamic practices though an affront to the Word of God (Quran). As it stands today, it is impossible to find a common Moslem idealogy that adheres to the teachings of the Quran without the inputs of scholars or forefathers, and this explains the divisions amongst Moslems. One will wonder if the Quran actually plays any significant role in the affairs of moslemdom cos all you hear of is what various schools of thought says or do or directed instead of what was revealed, so no matter how the calls to guidance, the Deviators will refer you to the salafis.
Quran 26:74 "They said! But we found our ancestors doing so"
26:75 "He (mohammed) said! Have you considered what you worship"
26:76 "You and your ancient ancestors?
37:69 "They had found their parents astray"
37:70 "And rushed along in their footsteps"
37:71 "And most of the ancients before them went astray"
So in order not to also stray or derail from the islamic rails, a guideline given to moslems 45:18 "Then We set you upon a pathway of faith, so follow it, and do not follow the inclinations of those who do not know" lest they regret later on.
33:67 "And they will say, “Our Lord, we have obeyed our superiors (imams) and our dignitaries (scholars) but they led us away from the way (islam)"
6:116 "Were you to obey most of those (salafi) on earth, they would misguide you from Allah's way (islam). They (salafi) follow nothing but speculation (hadith), and they (salafi) only guess"
10:36. "Most of them (salafi) follow nothing but assumptions, and assumptions (hadith) can in no way replace the Truth (Quran). Allah is fully aware of what they do"
43:43 "So adhere to what is revealed (Quran) to you. You are upon a straight path"
7:3. "Follow what is revealed (Quran) to you from your Lord, and do not follow other masters (Bukhari, Wahab & the 4 imams) beside Him (God). Little you recollect"
25:30 "And the Messenger will say, “My Lord, my people have abandoned this Quran"
One will ask again, how do we get out of salafism knowing the consequences that awaits scholarly worship, or is it that we have a religion of our own either than the Islam Mohammed established, and do we have a different God or judgement to face either than same God who is warning us against the D-Day?

[MASJID HARAM AND MASJID AQSA ARE NOT MENTIONED IN THE QURAN]
If Islam is truly a religion of a People who are submissive to the Will of God or have a thing to do with the creed of Abraham (Silm) then that Islam was long dead with Mohammed or no more have fellowship cos right after the prophet every aspect of his mission was diverted into an Arabic Cult aka Islam, and two of such diversionary doctrines or inventions is the constructions of Masjid Haram, the mosque surrounding the Kaaba in 638 AD, and the Aqsa Mosque/Dome of the Rock, the mosque built in 691 AD to occupy the holy site of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. These inventions were put up to give credence to a false claim that islamic prayers was practiced long before Mohammed but that is not true cos from the year 570 AD when Mohammed was born to the year 610 AD when he was called to prophethood till the year 622 AD of his exile and migration to Yethrib, a Jewish settlement which was later named after the prophet (madinatul Nabiyi), there was no Mosque in Mecca or Jerusalem or any part of the world, the first ever mosque was built in Medina in the very year of the Hijra (migration).
The truth is, the night journey (isra) took place in Mecca few years before he relocated in Medina, and the house of worship he visited in Jerusalem was a Temple not any forgery Aqsa Mosque that was built 75 years later. So if Aqsa means farthiest doesn't mean masjid is same as a temple (Maebab) cos a temple or sanctuary or monastery has their own Arabic names with purposes different from a mosque, check from Quran 22:40. So if the Quran 17:1 States ".....from the sacred house (Kaaba) to the farthiest Temple" why is it not called Maebab Al Aqsa (farthiest Temple) but Masjid Aqsa (farthiest mosque)?
Can't we read between the lines, or you deliberately pretends not see the diabolic agenda to mislead innocent people into believing in the Arabic religion associated with Islam today already existed before Mohammed so as to also justify the mythical ascendancy (Miraj) but know this, the first ever Mosque on planet earth is the one in Medina, and Mohammed undertook his night journey (isra) long before his exile and migration (hijra). Again there was no islamic edifice or mosque or moslems or Arab community in Jerusalem during the lifetime of Mohammed, the Aqsa mosque/dome of the rock were was built in 691 AD, 59 years later so the false claim that the prophet rose to heaven from the dome of the rock is exposed here.
In order to make the forbidden mosque (masjid haram) more relevant than the kaaba, they mentioned it as if that was where Mohammed used to worships and even begun his traunce (isra) from but there was the Sacred Shrine-Kaaba (Darih Muqadas) before the masjid haram was built round it during the caliphate of abubakar (638 AD) so the starting point of the traunce (isra) was Kaaba and not Masjid Haram (forbidden mosque).
There was also the Temple Mount (Jabal Al Maebab) 1651 years before masjid aqsa was built during the caliphate of Ibn Malik in 691 AD, so the destination was also the Farthiest Temple (Maebab Aqsa) and not Farthiest Mosque (Masjid Aqsa). So we got it wrong by the Madrasatil Arabia misinterpretations of Quran 17:1
Quran 17:1. "Glory to Him who journeyed His servant (Muhammed) by night (isra), from the Sacred Shrine-Kaaba (Darih Muqadas) to the Farthest Temple (Maebab Aqsa) whose precincts We have blessed, in order to show him (mohammed) of Our wonders. He is the Listener, the Beholder"
The framers of hadiths that diverted the story to suit arabism are betrayers of the Word of God (Quran). Let me add to your knowledge that it was Romans/Rashidun who invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the 2nd Jewish Temple then put up a mosque there. Islam took to a different course after the death of rasul Mohammed in 632 AD, what is practiced today is the old pagan religion of the Arabs that's why it's almost impossible to justify Islamic beliefs with the Quran but rather with fabricated stories (hadiths) attributed to the prophet.

[THE MASACRE OF MOHAMMED'S HOUSEHOLD "AHLE-BAIT" BY THE UMAYYADS]
The Umayyads were comprised of pagan arabs or the bani Quraish or the People of the Tradition (Ahle-sunnah) based in Mecca and Syria who were dire enemies of Rasul Mohammed/Islam. These same Arab group persecuted the prophet and his followers in Mecca, Perseued them in six various warfares in Medina then later after Mohammed's death invaded and masacred the remaining family and followers of the Rasul, invaded Jerusalem and occupied the holy site of the Temple Mount but yet their descendants/offshoots (sunnis/wahabis) claimed to be the ummah of the Rasul.
In the 7th century Arabia of entrenched ideas of ethnic and tribal superiority, the Prophet Muhammad went against the tide. He challenged inequalities determined by kinship, affiliation, and wealth while seeking to create a society that took care of its weak and treated them with respect. The Prophet’s revolutionary ideas provoked fierce opposition. His own dominant Meccan Quraish tribe turned against him. But his egalitarian message eventually prevailed after first finding resonance with marginalised people such as women and slaves.
The Prophet also ended a vicious cycle of reprisals and constant warfare in Arabia. He helped usher in unity, order, peace, and justice by uniting warring tribes and giving them a sense of community, overcoming the persecution, which forced his flight to Medina, assassination attempts, and wars by much more powerful adversaries (Meccans/Qurayshy).
Yet these Umayyads would rapidly extend their realm by bringing Iraq, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Persia, and the North African coast under their control. Arab armies defeated the mighty Egyptian and Persian empires and forced the Byzantines out of the Near East within a generation after the Prophet death. They moved across North Africa, crossed the Straits of Gibraltar, and controlled the Iberian Peninsula.
The first Arab Empire was the Umayyad, ruling from Damascus (661-750) pushed north into Western Europe until the Battle of Tours-Poitiers in 732 AD stopped its advance. It nonetheless conquered a vast region from the peripheries of India and China to Central Asia, Spain, and North Africa by 750 AD.
As Islam’s spiritual custodian, the Prophet’s favourite grandson, Imam Hussain opposed the distortion of basic Islamic values including through the inauguration of the dynastic Umayyad Empire on the lines of the Byzantine and Sasanian empires.
The situation came to a head when Hussain refused to legitimize Yazid as the latter inherited the empire from his father Muawiya. The refusal triggered the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD which ended with the massacre of Hussain and 72 of his companions and family members. Hussain went down fighting. He gave Yazid’s 30,000-strong force a run for their money. His heroics on the Battle of Karbala field fended off the enemy for 10 days and have since immortalized him in Muslim lore as the ultimate symbol of courage and commitment to the essence of Islam. Hussain was on his way to Kufa in modern-day Iraq with his relatives and followers when Yazid dispatched his forces from Damascus. Yazid wanted to intercept them before they could reach their destination and join a brewing rebellion. His forces besieged Hussain and his companions from the first to the 10th of Muharram (the first month in the Islamic calendar)—Ashura—in the desert plains of Karbala in what is now Iraq.
On the 10th day of Battle of Karbala, an exhausted and wounded Hussain collapsed outside his tent. With an arrow stuck in his arm and a dart injuring his face, he was thirsty and wobbly. Hussain somehow gathered the strength to lift himself off the ground. He raised his hands to heaven as soon as he was back on his feet. ‘We are for God, and to God shall we return,’ he shouted before mounting his horse. Hussain’s sister, Zainab, rushed to his aid but Hussain asked her to go back. Shimr soon executed Hussain but not before the Prophet’s grandson prayed: "Forgive, O merciful Lord, the sins of my grandfather’s people (Meccans/Umayyads) and grant me, bountifully the key of the treasure of intercession…" The surviving women and children accompanying Hussain were imprisoned in Damascus, where an undeterred Zainab challenged Yazid in his court despite being in chains. Zainab’s eyewitness account detailed the events of the Battle of Karbala and its aftermath and move Muslims to tears to this day.
As if that wasn't enough, Yazid sent his army to Madina in 63 AH, under the supervision of his companion,
after destruction in Madina thousand of people martyred they moved to Makkah, this incident known in islamic history as harra. The Battle of al-Harra (Yawm al-Ḥarra lit" or 'the day of al-Harra') was fought between the Syrian army of the Umayyad caliph Yazid I (680–683) led by Muslim ibn Uqba and the defenders of Medina from the Ansar Jewish support) and Muhajirun (Moslem immigrants) factions who had rebelled against the caliph. The battle took place at the lava field of Harrat Waqim in the northeastern outskirts of Medina on 26 August 683 and lasted less than a day. The elite factions of Medina disapproved of the hereditary succession of Yazid (unprecedeented in Islamic history until that point), resented the caliph's impious lifestyle, and chafed under Umayyad economic acts and policies. After declaring their rebellion, they besieged the Umayyad clan resident in Medina and dug a defensive trench around the city. The expeditionary force sent by Yazid and local Umayyads, who had since been released from the siege, encamped at Harrat Waqim, where the rebels confronted them. Despite an initial advantage, the Medinans were routed due to the defection of one of their factions, the Banu Haritha, which enabled Umayyad horse riders led by Marwan ibn al-Hakam to attack them from the rear.
Afterward, the army pillaged Medina for three days, though accounts of the plunder vary considerably. The Syrian army proceeded to besiege the rebel leader Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr in Mecca, though Ibn Uqba died en route. In contrast to Ibn al-Zubayr's call for a shura to decide the caliphate and his but the pre-Islamic period and was alternatively known as Harrat Bani Qurayza or Harrat Zuhra.It formed part of the vast geological system of ḥarras (basaltic deserts) which spanned the region east of the Hauran in Syria southward to Medina's environs.As a result of the fame of the battle, Harrat Waqim was thenceforth referred to in Muslim sources as 'the Harra'. I ask to know, at what period of history did these arabians accepted Islam, or is it a case of the Wolf in Sheep's clothing? [KOOKOspqs]
[THE DEATH OF MOHAMMED, A NEW ERA OF ISLAM AND ISLAMISTS INCURSIONS]
The face of Islam changed right after the death of Rasul Mohammed in 632 AD when Abu Bakr took over as the first Caliph of Islam. I put it this way bcos eventhough the prophet was faced with so many atrocities and invasions both in Mecca and Medina, he never initiates an attack on any group of people or a nation before, all he did was to avoid the Meccan hostilities by exile or resists the arabs invasions of Medina in military self defence. However Islam took to a different dimensions starting from the first successor (Abu Bakr) when he sanctioned an invasion of Syria, a move which was alien to that of the prophet.
In 664 AD sn Arab commander, Amr ibn al-A’as al-Sahmi who led the Muslim conquest of Egypt and served as its governor in 640–646 and 658–664 died in Egypt, an Umayyad Caliphate. Amr bin al-A'as was a rich Qurayshy son, converted to Islam in around 629 AD, and according to him, rasul Muhammad gave him important duties in the fledgling Muslim society. Amr was assigned as the leader of the conquest of Syria by the first caliph Abu Bakr (632–634). He led the Arabs to important successes against the Byzantines at the battles of Ajnadayn and Yarmouk in 634 and 636, after which he had been named ruler of most of Jerusalem.
Amr began the conquest of Egypt on his own initiative in late 639 AD and after a series of successes over the Byzantines that culminated in Alexandria's capitulation in 641 or 642 AD Amr launched the conquest of Egypt.
The first Muslim invasion was the one that happened the fastest, this was followed by westward advances by Amr as far as Tripoli in present-day Libya. These nations were never Arab nor islamic states prior to the conquests but were forced to islamised against their will and belief systems by the Arab invaders.
[WHEN AND HOW THE AYYUBIDS/UMAYYADS CONQUERED JERUSALEM]
The Crusaders captured the city of Jerusalem from the Fatimid Shias in 1099 AD, and ten thousands of Muslims, Jews, and even Orthodox Christians were massacred by the invaders, later it sounded as the First Crusade invasion. With estimating the number of deaths ranging from 40,000 to 70,000, this invasion has come to be recognised as one of the most cruel, savage, and barbarous exhibitions in history. According to the historians, blood covered the Crusaders' ankles and streamed down the streets of Jerusalem as men, women, and children were ruthlessly slaughtered.
Although the Crusaders surrendered to the Ayyubids while the Byzantines did not to the Ottomans, both their conquest of the respective cities as well as the treatment of its citizens was completely different from that of the Crusaders. The Muslims under Salahuddin al Ayyubi and his Ayyubid Dynasty would later regain Jerusalem 88 years later on 1187 CE, while the Ottomans under Sultan Mehmet al Fatih conquered the Constantinople in 1453.
Following in their footsteps was the so-called Fourth Crusade in 1204 CE (600 AH), during which the Catholic Crusader armies not only pillaged Constantinople, the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantine Empire), for three days, but also ruthlessly murdered and sexually assaulted the city's Orthodox Christian inhabitants.
The Crusaders joint forces started a series to siege the city of Jerusalem. After a 38-day long siege, finally the city fell to the Crusaders on July 15.
Previously, despite declining hostilities between the Crusaders and Byzantine commanders, the combined forces marched towards Anatolia, eventually seizing the major Syrian city of Antioch in June 1098. After a series of internal battles over control of Antioch, the Crusaders set out for Jerusalem, which was then controlled by Egyptian Fatimids (Shi'ite Muslims who opposed the Sunni Seljuks).
Later on, the Christian soldiers encamped in front of Jerusalem in June 1099, forcing the beleaguered city's governor to capitulate by mid-July. Despite Tancred's assurances of safety, the Crusaders killed hundreds of men, women, and children as they marched into Jerusalem victorious.
The Crusades waged a series of religious warfare between Christians and Muslims that began with the goal of gaining control of holy sites revered by both religions. Between 1096 and 1291, eight major Crusade voyages took place. The deadly, violent, and often merciless struggles elevated European Christians' stature, making them significant protagonists in the Middle East's land wars.
In 1192, the Treaty of Jaffa was signed between England's King Richard the Lionheart and Muslim Commander Sultan Salah-ad Din of Egypt, the treaty left Jerusalem under Muslim control, which guaranteed Jews could remain in the city. The treaty formed a truce between the Christian and Muslim armies and put an end to the Third Crusade.
This agreement was concluded shortly after the Battle of Jaffa in July–August 1192. In this battle, the army of King Richard I of England, known as Richard the Lionheart, clashed with the army of Salah ad-Din, the Ayyubid ruler of Egypt. And Syria.
Eventually both sides grew tired of the fighting and agreed to a ceasefire. It was decided that both Christians and Muslims would be allowed to move about freely in the Holy Land. Jerusalem would remain under Muslim authority, while Christian pilgrims would be allowed to visit, and the coastline from Tire to Jaffa would remain under Christian control.
Salah ad-Din, or Salahuddin al Ayyubi died (1193) in Damascus, Syria, Ayyubid Sultanate. He was a twelfth-century Kurdish Muslim commander and warrior from Tikrit, northern Iraq. He established the Ayyubid dynasty in Egypt, Syria, Yemen (excluding the Northern Mountains), Iraq, Mecca Hejaz, and Diyar Bakr. Saladin's leadership and military strength were moderated by his gallantry and mercy throughout his struggle against the Crusaders, earning him the respect of both Muslims and Christians.
In comparison to his Christian contemporaries, his morality was so outstanding that mythical and historical accounts of his deeds spread back to the West. The Arabic term Salah ad-Din means The Righteousness of the Faith, and is used as a title of respect. Saladin is also recognised as a Waliullah, which the Sunni Muslims refer to as the servant of God. Before his death he allowed the Jews to returned back to Jerusalem their homeland however every Jewish community has to buy their own plots of land again from Salaulhudeen and his caretakers, so the relationship between the Jews and the Moslem occupiers (Ayyubids/Umayyads) was not that of a helping hand the oppressed and scattered Jewish People to return but an unfair and hostile land grabbing/sales.

[THE JEWISH RACE IS NOT A RELIGION BUT AN ETHNICITY] The Hebrew word that was translated into Jew or Jews or Jewish, is Yehudi, and it's mentioned in 84 different accounts, 74 times in reference to the Jewish race, 7 times to Judah, Judea or judeans, and once as Brethren in the Old Testament. The name Jews or Yehudi was first given ethnic prominence after Gods Covernant with Abraham in order to separate the descendants of Abraham from his father's or ancestral idol worship but the term Yehudi (Jewish) is given a religious connotation by moslem scholars who erroneously limited or situated it to just the followers of Judaism, a religious fellowship named after a fourth generational Jewish prophet in the line of Abraham called Judah, one of the twelve Sons of Jacob.
This stereotype or the madrasatil Arabia (Arabic Education) misconception of who a Jew is has wrongly dispelled the anciency or racial definition of Abraham and his offsprings - 16:120 "Abraham was an exemplary leader devoted to God, a monotheist, and was not of the polytheists"
16:121. Thankful for His blessings. He chose him, and guided him to a straight path"
6:84 "And We gave him (Abraham) Isaac and Jacob—each of them We guided. And We guided Noah previously; and from his descendants David, and Solomon, and Job, and Joseph, and Moses, and Aaron. Thus We reward the righteous"
6:85 "And Zechariah, and John, and Jesus, and Elias—every one of them was of the upright"
6:86 "And Ishmael, and Elijah, and Jonah, and Lot—We favored each one of them over all other people"
6:87 "And of their ancestors (Jews), and their descendants (tribes of Israe), and their siblings (Israelites), We chose them, and guided them to a straight path"
5:46. In their (Ahle-Kitab) footsteps, We sent jesus son of Mary, fulfilling the Torah that preceded him, and We gave him the gospel wherein is guidance and light, and confirming the Torah that preceded him, and guidance and counsel for the righteous"
5:20 "When Moses said to his people (Israelites) “O my people, remember Allah’s blessings upon you, when He placed prophets among you, and made you kings, and gave you what He never gave any other people.”
4:54 "Or do they (arabs) envy the people (Jews) for what (Promise) God has given them of His grace (ISRAEL)? We have given the family of Abraham (Jews/tribes of Israel) the Book and wisdom, and We have given them a great kingdom (ISRAEL)"
24:34. "We revealed to you (Mohammed) clarifying revelations (Quran) along with guidance of those (Jewish prophets) who passed on before you, an advice for the righteous"
45:29 "This Book (Quran) of Ours speaks about you (Jews) in truth. We have been transcribing what you (Jews) have been doing"
17:77. "[This is] The tradition (sunnah) of the messengers (Ahle-Kitab) We sent before you—you will find no change in Our rules"
6:89. "Those (Jews) are they to whom We gave the Book, and wisdom, and prophethood. If these (Arabs) reject them, We have entrusted them to others who do not reject them"
6:90. "Those (Ahle-Kitab) are they whom Allah has guided, so follow their guidance. Say, “I ask of you (Arabs) no compensation for it (Quran), it is just a reminder for all mankind.”
12:111. "In their (Ahle-Kitab) stories is a lesson for those who possess intelligence. This is not a fabricated tale (hadith) but a confirmation (Quran) of what (Torah, Psalms and Gospel) came before it, and a detailed explanation of all things, and guidance, and mercy for people who believe".
So call them Jews or Israelites or Children of Israel or People of the Book (Ahle-Kitab), it's the same race or ethnicity not a religion as propagated by Islamists cos we have Jewish judaists, Jewish christians and Jewish Moslems in today's Israel. Those Jews practicing Judaism are called judaists not Jews, and Judah is one the 12 children of Israel, and if their father Jacob was a Jew, and his father Isaac too was a Jew, how come the father of Isaac who is Abraham not a Jew? It was Abraham who created the Jewish language Hebrew, so if Abraham was not a Jew, how come his sons and grandsons were Jews? The name Israelites became imperative for the descendant of Israel (Jacob) and rest of the Jewish race after him cos in him was the first knigdom of Israel manifested.
All these Quranic reference mean the same people from one generation to the other. Before Abraham disagreed with the idol trade/worship of his father and left home in Hebron he was known as a Jew but because of his nomadic character he was referred to as Hebrew everywhere he settles and the word Hebrew means stranger. His offsprings are the tribes of Israel and by covenant they are called the people of the Book.
However shocking is the rejection Jewish people face all over the World by the same religions proclaiming the scripture, perhaps the Word of God don't mean anything to them, if not, the Torah, Psalms, Gospel and the Quran is about Jews/Israelites, why do Moslem scholars and preachers compromised the Quran with their lips (hadiths/tafsirs), and was God wrong by covenanting with the Children of Israel in 2:40,43 "O Children of ISRAEL, remember my favour which I bestowed upon you and fulfil My Covenant so that I fulfills your Covenant and fear none but Me. And offer prayers perfectly and gives zakat and submit yourself alongside bowing". Depending on only the revelation of Quran leads to semi literacy cos the Qur'an is just a summary of the Biblical stories.

[PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE, THE FRUIT OF ISLAMIC SOCIETY]
A turn-coat is a situation of double standards or paying lip-service to a pressing issue, and moslemdom is one such establishment which says one thing but does the opposites. Listening to utterances of fellow Moslems, one may see Godly people until you feels the brunt of their psychology cos the Arabic term Islam (peaceful submission) has little or no bearing on the so-called muslims (peaceful submiters), we claimed to be peace makers when it's an open-secret that Moslems are the most hostile society among religions.
Going by the examples of Mohammed and the principles that characterized the earlier Moslem community in madina, one cannot deny the fact that Islam was a religion of peace cos of the cordiality of co-habitations/co-existence between Arab Moslems, Christian Jews, Judaists and the Jewish communities, which was acknowledged by God in Quran 60:8. "As for those (Jews) who have not fought against you (moslems) for your religion (Islam) nor expelled you from your homes (in Medina) God does not prohibit you (moslems) from dealing with them (Jews) kindly and equitably. God loves the equitable"
9:117. "God has redeemed the Prophet (Mohammed), and the Emigrants (muhajirun), and the Helpers (Ansars-jews), those who followed him in the hour of difficulty, after the hearts of some of them almost swerved. Then He pardoned them. He is Kind towards them, Compassionate". Lest I forget the inspiring statement of religious tolerance in recent times by the de facto Ruler of the islamic kingdom (Mohammed Bin Salman) "They had Christians and Jews living under their rule. They taught us to respect all cultures, all religions, regardless. These teachings (peaceful co-existence) of the Prophet (Mohammed) and the four Caliphs (Abubakar, Umar, Othman & Ali) they were perfect.. We are going back to the root (religious tolerance), to the real thing (Islam). What happened was that the extremists hijacked and changed our religion into something new for their own interests". Who are these extremists MBS is accusing of making Islam look hostile, they're no other than the Umayyads, Ottomans and the latter day Iran sponsored Hezhollah/Hamas attacks on Israel and Jews.
Islam is a religion of peace in the scriptural sense of the word. The Qur'an calls its way "…The ways of peace…" (5:16) It describes reconciliation as the best policy (4:128), and states that Allah abhors any disturbance of peace (2:205)
The root word of Islam (Arabic) is Silm (Hebrew) which means peace or submission, so the spirit of Islam is the spirit of peace. The introductory verse of the surats of the Quran breathes the spirit of peace; it reads: "In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate."
This verse is repeated in the Quran not less than 114 times. It shows the great importance Islam attaches to such values as Mercy and Compassion. One of Allah's attributes, according to the Quran, is As-Salaam, which means Peace. Moreover, the Quran states that the Rssul Muhammad was sent to the world as a mercy to mankind.(21:107)
A perusal of the Quran shows that most verses of the Quran are based on peace and kindness, either directly or indirectly. The ideal society, according to the Quran is Dar As-Salaam, that is, the house of peace (10:25)
The Quran presents the universe as a model, which is characterised by harmony and peace (36:40) When Allah created heaven and earth, He so ordered things that each part might perform its function peacefully without clashing with any other. The Quran tells us that "It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming." (36:40) For billions of years, therefore, the entire universe has been fulfilling its function in total harmony with His divine plan.
According to Islam, peace is not simply an absence of war. Peace opens doors to all kinds of opportunities which are present in any given situation. It is only in a peaceful situation that planned activities are possible. It is for this reason that the Quran says: "…And settlement is best…" Similarly, Rssul Muhammad has observed: "Allah grants to gentleness (Rifq) what He does not grant to violence ('Unf). [Abu Daawood]
According to Islam, peace is the rule and war is only an exception. Even in defensive war we have to analyse its result; if the result is doubtful, moslems should avoid war. Stray acts of aggression are not enough for moslems to rush into war. They have to assess the whole situation and adopt a policy of avoidance when war is not certain to achieve a positive result.
Any moslem that is not abiding to the principles of PEACE, LOVE AND HARMONY as defined in the Qur'an must stop holding his/herself as a moslem for its by actions that makes one a moslem and not by birth or name or conversion, that is being a moslem by default and not by deed.
