Islam is love, peace and reconciliation. _ Al-Qaida is hate, violence and destruction. _ The clear proof of peaceful message in Islam is embedded in the sayings of Prophet Muhammad and in Quranic revelations. _But eyes of Al-Qaida are hermetically shut against the traditions of the Prophet recorded in Hadiths._ Imprisoned inside the inferno of their own ignorance they are unable even to acknowledge the Islamic virtues of kindness and compassion, save alone to accept the universal message of unity, harmony and tolerance. _Below are the repetitions of the revelations and Prophet’s sayings which I have quoted often to counter countless distortions of everything Islamic repeated throughout centuries, attaining the life of its own, bloated with lies and unleashing terrible trouncing of terror and tyranny._ May the light of peace blot out the soot of ignorance and cure the blindness of the terrorists and fundamentalists. _‘There are three things of which God disapproves, cunning plans, waste of goods and excessive requests. And three are the enemies of my religion. The fundamentalists, the fundamentalists, the fundamentalists.’ Prophet Muhammad Al Bukhari XX1V:53(2) ¬_‘War is a deceptive error.’ Prophet Muhammad Al Bukhari LV1:157(3) _‘The energetic man is not one who uses force, but one who keeps control of himself in a moment of anger.’ Prophet Muhammad Al Bukhari LXV111:76(1) _‘Permission to fight is given to those who fight against you, but be not aggressive.’ Quran 22:39 _‘And if they (enemy) incline to peace, incline thou also to it.’ Quran 8:61 _‘Wrong not mankind in their goods, and do not evil, making mischief in the earth.’ 26:183 Quran _‘Work not confusion in the earth after the fair ordering thereof, and call on Him in fear and hope’ 7:56 Quran _‘Yet whoso doeth evil or wrongeth his own soul, then seeketh pardon of Allah, will find Allah Forgiving, Merciful.’ 4:110 Quran _‘And if they incline to peace, incline thou also to it, and trust in Allah. Lo, He is the Hearer, the Knower.’ 8:61 Quran _Prophet Muhammad’s sayings: _‘Shall I inform you of a better act than alms, prayers and fasting? Making peace between one another. Enmity and malice tear up the heavenly rewards by the roots— _God has not created anything better than Reason, or anything more perfect, or more beautiful than Reason; the benefits which God gives are on its account; and understanding is by it, and God’s wrath is caused by disregard of it— _Nine things that my Lord has commanded me: to reverence Him; to speak the truth with propriety, in adversity and prosperity; moderation in poverty and affluence; benefit my relations and kindred, who do not benefit me; to give alms to him who refuses me; to forgive him who injures me; to attain the knowledge of God through silence; to mention God in my heart and speech; I should be an example to God’s creatures in love and kindness-- _Verily those who are patient in adversity and forgive wrongs, are the doers of excellence— _That person is nearest to God, who pardons, when he has in his power who would have injured him— _Whoever is kind to His creatures, God is kind to him, therefore be kind to everyone on earth, whether good or bad— _Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever has no kindness, has no faith— _He dies not who gives life to learning— _An hour of contemplation is better than a year’s adoration; go in quest of knowledge even unto China— _Seek knowledge from cradle to grave—what weakens the foundations of Islam: the errors of the learned destroy it, the disputations of the hypocrites, and the orders of the kings who have lost the road— _To spend more time in learning is better than spending more time in praying. It is better to teach knowledge one hour in the night than to pray the whole night—the pursuit of knowledge is a divine commandment for every Muslim, male or female— _God hath treasuries beneath the Throne, the keys whereof are the tongues of poets; he who knows his own self knows God— _Acquire knowledge. It enables its possessor to distinguish from right and wrong; it lights the way to Heaven; it is our friend in the desert; our society in solitude; our companion when friendless; it guides us to happiness; it sustains us in misery; it is an ornament amongst friends and an armor against enemies. _If you can keep your heart from morning till night and from night till morning free from malice toward anyone, you are following my path and he who loveth my path verily loveth me. _God is one and liketh unity. _Do you love your creator? Love your fellow beings first.
