|TRADE NEWSWIRE|: boko haram, a terrorist group, that facade their nefarious operations with Islamic identities and are wreaking havoc in Nigeria, especially in the North East region of the country, are not Muslims but enemies of the religion of Islam-which stands for Peace, TRADE NEWSWIRE reports.
The actions of boko haram over the years against Nigerians in general be it Muslims, Christians and Traditionalist alike are totally against the teachings and tenets of Islam, as they kill, maim, abduct, marry women forcefully, causes violent among other devilish acts against humanity which Islam clearly go against.
Below are some of the teachings of Allah in the Holy Quran and that of the Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) that preaches against violence end encourages peaceful co-existence of human being on earth.
“Whoever kills a soul, without [its being guilty of] manslaughter or corruption on the earth, is as though he had killed all mankind, and whoever saves a life is as though he had saved all mankind”. (Surah Al-Ma’idah -5:32)
“Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And God hears and knows all things.” (Quran 2:256).
“If it had been your Lord’s will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe?” (Quran 10:99).
“The Messenger’s duty is but to proclaim the Message.” (Quran 5:99)
“So if they dispute with you, say ‘I have submitted my whole self to God, and so have those who follow me.’ And say to the People of the Scripture and to the unlearned: ‘Do you also submit yourselves?’ If they do, then they are on right guidance. But if they turn away, your duty is only to convey the Message. And in God’s sight are all of His servants.” (Quran 3:20)
Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) said the following:
“Anyone who kills a sparrow i.e a small bird for nothing, it will cry aloud to God on the day of resurrection, saying, ‘O My Lord! such and such a man killed me for nothing, he never killed me for any good”- not to talk of killing fellow human being.
“God is not merciful to him who is not so to mankind”.
“Faith is a restraint against all violence, let no Mu’min commit violence”.
“You will not enter paradise until you have faith; and you will not complete your faith, till you love one another”.
“God is gentle and loves gentleness”.
“A perfect Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands mankind is safe, and a true emigrant [muhajir] is one who flees from what God has forbidden”.
“Anyone who walks with a wrong doer in order to strengthen him knowing all the while that he is a wrong doer, has departed from Islam”.
Every religion has a distinctive virtue, and the distinctive virtue of Islam is modesty.
“The best of God’s servants are those who, when seen, remind one of God; and the worst of God’s servants are those who carry tales about to do mischief and separate friends, and seek for the defects of the good”.
