Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Hakeem Olajuwon

The difference must be distinguished between worship and respect. Islam orders you to obey and respect, as long as you are not worshiping anything other than God ... Islam is a religion of peace. You don't attack. You explain. — Hakeem Olajuwon

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

Don't hate the Muslims or Islam. Hate if you must, the fundamentalists who consistently compel the human society to turn away from even the peace loving Muslims. However, the term hate would be an understatement when we are referring to the fundamentalists. The fundamentalists are the biggest enemies of the human race. Without the presence of the fundamentalist inspiration, no violence in the name of religion shall ever fester on this planet. People from all religious, spiritual and non-religious background shall live in harmony, enriching each other's lives, if there are no fundamentalists to divide them apart. — Abhijit Naskar

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Idries Shah

The important place held by Jesus among the world's six hundred million Moslems ... and the agreement of both religions about the necessity for surrender to God as the means of salvation, thus makes it comparatively easy for a Moslem to address himself to Christians: the sympathy and the history are already there. — Idries Shah

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Sam Harris

To speak specifically of our problem with the Muslim world, we are meandering into a genuine clash of civilizations, and we're deluding ourselves with euphemisms. We're talking about Islam being a religion of peace that's been hijacked by extremists. If ever there were a religion that's not a religion of peace, it is Islam. — Sam Harris

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Karen Armstrong

If we are to avoid catastrophe, the Muslim and Western worlds must learn not merely to tolerate but to appreciate one another. A good place to start is with the figure of Muhammad: a complex man, who resists facile, ideologically-driven categorization, who sometimes did things that were difficult or impossible for us to accept, but who had profound genius and founded a religion and cultural tradition that was not based on the sword but whose name - "Islam" - signified peace and reconciliation. — Karen Armstrong

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Pope Francis

In this work (peace building), the role of religion is fundamental. It is not possible to build bridges between people while forgetting God, ... But the converse is also true: it is not possible to establish true links with God while ignoring other people. Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam. — Pope Francis

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Tim I. Gurung

Christianity is stigmatized by the myriad of child abuse scandals; Islam is hijacked by fanatics and given a bad name. Buddhism is all about the good teaching of peace, respect and nonviolence, and Hinduism is all about finding faith, respect and belief in everything as they strongly believe that God is omnipresent and lives in everything, and other religions have their own faith, belief and way of reaching the almighty one. No religion is good or bad; it is the man who makes it bad. Paganism is a path to nowhere; but the subject of religion is a can of worms that is better left uncorked. Agnosticism might get their chance, and for the sake of equality and fairness, let the monotheist speak out.'"

My No.7 book is coming....! — Tim I. Gurung

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Sam Harris

The position of the Muslim community in the face of all provocations seems to be: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn't, we will kill you. — Sam Harris

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Muhammad Ali

What's really hurting me, the name Islam is involved, and Muslim is involved and causing trouble and starting hate and violence ... Islam is not a killer religion ... Islam means peace, I couldn't just sit home and watch people label Muslims as the reason for this problem. — Muhammad Ali

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Feisal Abdul Rauf

Koran says whoever believes in God in the last day shall be saved. It is a religion whose very name, Islam, comes from the word Shalom, which means peace. It's about establishing peace. We greet each other with peace be upon you, which the Jews do in greeting each other. — Feisal Abdul Rauf

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Let me make my point in the simplest possible terms: Islam is not a religion of peace. — Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Jay Parini

It's probably incorrect to say that Islam is 'a religion of peace,' as some politicians like to say. Overstatements like that don't clarify anything. — Jay Parini

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Maajid Nawaz

I can say with a level of confidence that Islam is not a religion of war, only because the majority of Muslims don't subscribe to that perspective, not because there's something inherent in the text that tells me it's a religion of peace. — Maajid Nawaz

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Hamza Yusuf

The onus is on us as a community to really put forward a different face for our religion, for our community, and for our Lord, and for our Prophet, peace be upon him, because it's really unacceptable that a religion with all of this beauty should be painted with such ugly strokes. So we're really here trying to paint a beautiful picture of our faith in action. — Hamza Yusuf

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

I do regard Islam to be a religion of peace in the same sense as Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism are. — Mahatma Gandhi

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Now, when I assert that Islam is not a religion of peace I do not mean that Islamic belief makes Muslims naturally violent. This is manifestly not the case: there are many millions of peaceful Muslims in the world. What I do say is that the call to violence and the justification for it are explicitly stated in the sacred texts of Islam. Moreover, this theologically sanctioned violence is there to be activated by any number of offenses, including but not limited to apostasy, adultery, blasphemy, and even something as vague as threats to family honor or to the honor of Islam itself. — Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Islam expect every Muslim to do this duty, and if we realise our responsibility time will come soon when we shall justify ourselves worthy of a glorious past. — Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

This is manifestly not the case: there are many millions of peaceful Muslims in the world.

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Dave Champion

There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. If, for the sake of argument, 1 million are violent, that's a mere .000625 percent of them. I wonder who among you wants to be judged on such a tiny minority. Further, at 1.6 billion, if all Muslims - or even most Muslims - were violent, the world would already be in flames. Most people simply want to live their lives in peace, with some degree of material comfort. I find it bizarre - and disturbing - that so many Americans imagine that being a Muslim somehow trumps human nature and makes ordinary simple people want to rise up and kill everyone. That takes a special kind of stupid. — Dave Champion

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Jermaine Jackson

I think Muslims have become the new Negroes in America. They are being mistreated at airports, by the Immigration - everywhere. Islam is a religion of peace. They are wrong. — Jermaine Jackson

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Jordan Keller

What these followers do not realize is that the Islamic faith is mostly a peaceful religion. The violent tactics spread by Islamic radicals is a common misconception of the religion that has made it hard for most Islamic cultures around the world to continue peacefully. The misinformed assume that all Muslims, followers of Islam, are dangerous threats. Yet the truth is that the words of Islamic faith are about peace, not war. — Jordan Keller

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By G. M. Davis

It is the contention of this book that the idea that Islam is a religion of peace is fundamentally, totally, and disastrously wrong. In fact, Islam is intrinsically violent; it is the impetus for modern terrorism, and its doctrines necessitate that the only possible relationship between Islamic civilization and non-Islamic civilization is war or subjugation. — G. M. Davis

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Wendell Berry

Those who say Islam is a warlike religion must ask if Christianity has been as well. — Wendell Berry

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas

Change, development and progress, according to the Islamic viewpoint, refer to the return to the genuine Islam enunciated and practised by the Holy Prophet (may God bless and give him Peace!) and his noble Companions and their Followers (blessing and peace be upon them all!) and the faith and practice of genuine Muslims after them; and they also refer to the self and mean its return to its original nature and religion (Islam). — Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Mosab Hassan Yousef

Islam is not a religion of peace. Islam is a religion of war, and most Muslims don't understand the true nature of Islam. — Mosab Hassan Yousef

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Idries Shah

And there are many people, both Moslem and Christian, who have a good grasp of each others0 conceptions of surrender to God an other principles. But the widespread existence of bias, misinformation and lack of knowledge ( ... ) militate against the effectiveness of dialogue, ( ... ) by the most subtle and one of the most effective of instruments, the subconscious, almost the subliminal, introduction of hostility. — Idries Shah

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Infuriatingly stupid analysts - especially people who called themselves Arabists, yet who seemed to know next to nothing about the reality of the Islamic world - wrote reams of commentary [after 9/11]. Their articles were all about Islam saving Aristotle and the zero, which medieval Muslim scholars had done more than eight hundred years ago; about Islam being a religion of peace and tolerance, not the slightest bit violent. These were fairy tales, nothing to do with the real world I knew. — Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Jeb Bush

Is Islam a religion of peace? I'm sure for some of the practitioners, but it's been hijacked by people who have an ideology that wants to destroy western civilization, and they're barbarians. — Jeb Bush

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Imran Khan

When I was older, I found Iqbal's work hugely inspirational. He argued against an unquestioning acceptance of Western democracy as the self-governing model, and instead suggested that by following the rules of Islam a society would tend naturally towards social justice, tolerance, peace and equality. Iqbal's interpretation of Islam differs very widely from the narrow meaning that is sometimes given to it. For Iqbal, Islam is not just the name for certain beliefs and forms of worship. The difference between a Muslim and a non-Muslim is not merely a theological one - it is a difference of a fundamental attitude towards life. — Imran Khan

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Walid Shoebat

What the West does not understand about Islamism is that Jihad is very systematic. It has stages. If Muslims have the upper hand, then Jihad is waged by force. If Muslims do not have the upper hand, then Jihad is waged through financial and political means. Since Muslims do not have the upper hand in America or Europe, they talk about peace in front of you while supporting Hamas and Hezbollah in the back room. The whole idea of Islam being a peaceful religion emanates from that silent stage of Jihad. — Walid Shoebat

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Douglas Murray

The claim that Islam is a religion of peace is a nicety invented by Western politicians so as either not to offend their Muslim populations or simply lie to themselves that everything might yet turn out fine. In fact, since its beginning Islam has been pretty violent. — Douglas Murray

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Reza Aslan

Islam doesn't promote violence or peace. Islam is just a religion, and like every religion in the world, it depends on what you bring to it. If you're a violent person, your Islam, your Judaism, your Christianity, your Hinduism, is going to be violent. — Reza Aslan

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Jeffrey Lang

As I read the Qur'an and prayed the Islamic prayers, a door to my heart was unsealed and I was immersed in an overwhelming tenderness. — Jeffrey Lang

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Jared Brock

What are the chances that of all 1.59629 quadrillion square feet of physical land on planet Earth, three major world religions are literally fighting over one single rock? — Jared Brock

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Nosrat Rasool Allah

God in His mercy had sent messengers to convey His message, to different peoples, in different times. Each prophet came with guidance and miracles that were relevant for his time, and for his people, but the message was the same: That there is only one God, and worship is for him alone. This "Islam" was the religion brought by all the prophets of God. Islam was the religion of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them all). God has in His Grace, addressed this issue to man in His final revelation, the Noble Quran. — Nosrat Rasool Allah

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

The whole humanity together must start working on focusing on reinforcing the elements of love and compassion from Islamic philosophy into the general human psyche. — Abhijit Naskar

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Abdullah Of Saudi Arabia

Muslims are not bloodthirsty people. Islam is a religion of peace that forbids the killing of the innocent. Islam also accepts the Prophets, whether those prophets are Mohammed, God's peace and blessing be upon Him, or Moses or the other prophets of the Books. — Abdullah Of Saudi Arabia

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Chuck Todd

It seems to me that this debate, whether Islam is a religion of peace or not, really, it's irrelevant for outsiders. It's for Muslims to decide whether it's a religion of peace or not. — Chuck Todd

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Muhammad Ali

I believe in the religion of Islam. I believe in Allah and peace. — Muhammad Ali

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

This was an infidel country, whose way of life we Muslims were supposed to oppose and reject. Why was it, then, so much better run, better led, and made for such better lives than the places we came from? Shouldn't the places where Allah was worshipped and His laws obeyed have been at peace and wealthy, and the unbelievers' countries ignorant, poor, and at war? — Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Michael Muhammad Knight

One thing was for sure: I had no interest in questioning whether Islam was inherently a religion of peace or one of war, whether the terrorists had misappropriated an innocent faith or the liberal Muslims were only in denial of what Islam actually taught. I'd never claim to know what "true" Islam stood for; religions were too big to make it that simple, there was too much history and too many verses, and everyone just took the parts that they wanted anyway. For a prophet's message to become what they call a world religion, it'd have to be big enough to accommodate all kinds of personalities. Good ones, mean ones, greedy ones, kind ones, hard ones, soft ones, and they all own Islam as much as it owns them. The water has no shape; it's shaped by the bottle. I could see that as a Muslim, contrasting Qari Saheb's sweetness with that maniac Rushdie, and I even saw it with Catholics in Geneva, between sweet Gramps and that dickhead monsignor or Fat Ed. — Michael Muhammad Knight

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Ramsey Clark

Islam is the only religion that gives dignity to the poor. — Ramsey Clark

Islam Is A Religion Of Peace Quotes By Sarah Macdonald

I've learned much from the land of many gods and many ways to worship. From Buddhism the power to begin to manage my mind, from Jainism the desire to make peace in all aspects of life, while Islam has taught me to desire goodness and to let go of that which cannot be controlled. I thank Judaism for teaching me the power of transcendence in rituals and the Sufis for affirming my ability to find answers within and reconnecting me with the power of music. Here's to the Parsis for teaching me that nature must be touched lightly, and the Sikhs for the importance of spiritual strength ... And most of all, I thank Hinduism for showing me that there are millions of paths to the divine. — Sarah Macdonald
