Islam is not the religion of peace ..its a religion of salvation .. to attain salvation one has to submit him/herself to the will of god .. which means living life in peace ..from within .. peace cannot be attained by killing eachother .. why? because its within us .. if a jew, muslim,christian wants to live in peace he ought to exercise his beliefs, stretching his/her mind to the end of the horizon .. islam is knowledge, knowledge is power, power is faith and in faith theres peace .. then salvation .. so the faithfull irrespective of any religion walks on the above mentioned path .. sooner or later he/she would realize the truth and by none other than god himself .. so its better we dont judge eachother and leave the judgement to the one up there ! ..if he had to thump the religion on mankind, which he is capable of he would have done so .. why he didnt do it because he is with us against satan ..even the devil knows he cant win the battle .. but its just a matter of faith my fellow beings .. unfortunately we all lack it and the little of what we have is wasted .. the light is ever so bright, lest a blind could see .. far beyond the horizon stretched across the sea .. wonder where i would be, without the shade of thee ..Oh lord almighty !

I meant killing to infidels in 'Dar al Harb' that waging war on Muslims, with their army and tank ..What do America and Israel in the land of Muslims NOW!!!

it is forbidden in Islam the attack on the peaceful disbelief (infidels)


Do you understand now why Islam is peace ?
I need to jump in here;
If someone of Islam places America responsible for a family members death and revenge is sought, wouldn't any American do?
I really want to understand the Islamic faith but there seems to be a lot of fine print when it comes to the "do's and dont's" of killing the enemy.
A poster on a different thread made the comment, "I don't worry about a Christian blowing me to pieces". I have to admit, neither do I but I do concern myself with a Muslim doing it. It seems that "Islam" is willing to generalize a whole culture (Americans) for a crime that an individual (or government) did, but when this culture (Americans) returns the genralzation of Islam, Muslims are taken back (I do understand not all Muslims feel this way).
This is the general feeling in groups; Its like, "well if they (Islam) don't respect my faith then screw theirs."
You two, by reading your post, are not the stero typical Islamic Muslims most Americans associate with the Muslim community.
Its the lack of knowldge on both sides that breeds fear and hatred.

In other words, you are the physical control on YOur Thoughts against the substance of them.

Ideally the substance is unity of Form and Matter. The eating is materially the whole of it, but from my discussions with Islamists (in the nineties mind you) the idealistic being of Self is never adequate for the physical control for mental beliefs. Actually, when I fasted there was some hopeful refusal of uncontrolled thinking.
