    do some Muslims want to wage jihad on all non Muslims?

    Why do some Muslims want to do jihad on all non Muslims?


    Does Islam promote violence?



    The Qur’an tells us in Surah Taubah, verse 5

    "Kill the mushriqeen (pagans, polytheists, kuffar) where ever you find them."

    This verse is one of the most commonly quoted that is often used to perpetuate the myth that Islam promotes violence and that all non-Muslims should be killed.

    Yet you will never find the same people spreading this myth quoting the verse before or the verse after.

    Why is that?

    Because by doing so they will be exposed. This question does not need me to answer, rather once the verse is put into context all becomes clear.

    However as you may not have access to the Qur’an right now, a brief explanation is below;

    Verse 1 of the same surah mentions a peace treaty between the Muslims and the Mushriqeen (pagans) of Makkah. This treaty was then violated by the Mushriqeen of Makkah.

    And then a period of four months was given to the Mushriqeen of Makkah to make amends. Otherwise war would be declared against them and it is in the context of war we find the above quoted verse 5.

    To understand it better, say that during America’s war with Iraq, Suppose the President of America or the General of the American Army told the American soldiers during the war: "Wherever you find the Iraqi’s kill them".

    Now if I say that the American President said, "Wherever you find Iraqi’s, kill them" and I do not mention the context it is in, he sounds like a butcher. But if the context is mentioned and that he said it during a war, it will make more sense who exactly he is referring to.

    But wait, you may say, that is a bit brutal killing everyone in war, and in answer to this the Qur’an provides the answer once again in the following verse, verse 6,

    "If one amongst the pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah; and then escort him to where he can be secure that is because they are men without knowledge."

    Now, tell me, how many western generals or leaders have orders to let enemy soldiers free if they ask for it? And further to escort these enemy soldiers during war to safety?

    And further just to understand the nature of the rules that Islam has during war, we find in a hadith, Abu Bakr (r.a), the Prophet Muhammad's (s.a.w) successor, told a military commander: "I advise you...Do not kill women, or children, or an elderly, infirm person. Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place. Do not slaughter [animals] except for food. Do not [harm] honey bees. Do not steal from the [spoils of war], and do not be cowardly."

    Islam promotes violence and barbarism?

    Judge for yourself .
