Is Islam really a "religion of peace"?
>>
It depends on what parts of the Quran you choose to follow.

I choose to follow the ones that don't require me to murder the infidels and wage a holy war against the non-believers. I also don't follow the "don't drink alcohol and don't do drugs".
>>
>>685159041
But surely to be a 'true Muslim' you would have to follow ALL of the Koran.
>>
>>685159041
how can you choose a part to follow? When your evidence for god is "This book" can you really afford to say "No not that part... or that part" ?

I'll gladly take not being a "true Muslim" over killing my friends for no reason.

>>685159570
The Quran was written over a thousand years ago, and is violent in some parts. I believe that it was written for a different time, a time where a world like this wasn't envisioned so I don't follow the rules that I consider outdated.
>>
>>685159844
Thats a good point, from a muslim point of view, do you consider isis to be not ture muslims, as they follow different parts? or would they be the "true muslims"

No, I don't believe ISIS to be true Muslims. Sure, they make be following the rules of the Quran, but they also gloss over the rules that would require them to not kill the innocent, or women children and the elderly, etc.

They take the violent parts of the Quran and use it to its full potential to suit their needs, and they ignore the rest of the Quran that requires them to be good people.

>>685160282
Like I mentioned above, it's clear that the Quran has violent sections but within those sections are limits to what a Jihadist should and can do. Unfortunately ISIS doesn't keep to those limits.

Extremism isn't bad as long as the core beliefs are truly non-violent.

For example an extreme buddhist wouldn't step on a bug.
An extreme muslim would blow up infidels, therefore islam is not a religion of peace

>>685165355
The issue with Islam is that it is fundamentally violent. The 'extremists' follow it in it's entirety whilst the 'normal' ones only follow the ones they want to. This while people call it "The religion of peace"
>>
Every religion can claim to be whatever they want to be. However no religion is true. Meaning whatever you follow it's up to you to decide whether your beliefs lie within that religion. No religion can be peace, everything needs balance. Where ever there is peace so there is war/chaos. In the case of Islam they believe in Jihad, which is a holy war, but let's be honest war is war. So the peace must come somewhere, right? Peace comes after war, but is that truly peace or just the words/perception of the victor? We don't know what is ideal peace. Our perception of it is deluded by victories. Definition of peace is freedom from disturbance aka tranquility. Such a state will never exist in our society because we are humans and we can do nothing about our greed and etc. In the end we are only human, we deserve peace and war, sadness and happiness and whatever. Maybe one day we will transcend into a higher level. I'm writing bullshit because I'm bored, sorry if you actually read this.

Iunno, I'm atheist, so that doesn't apply to me.

However, to the islamists that it does apply to (or any other religion), they are born into it. Knowing the consequences of forsaking your religion in islamic countries, they must cling to it or dey ded or live in the closet.

Also, being in a Christian household, some of my family members flipped shit when they found out I was an atheist.

>Is Islam a religion of peace
no abrahamic religion can be let me explain some history to you

YHWH was a Canaanite (are where isreal is) god of war and storms
at one point some people decided all other Canaanite gods (Baal, Berith, Mot, Moloch) were false, and called them demons, and decided o call themselves Yahweists iirc. they wouid later call themselves Jews. So then about 900 years later after already succeeding in pissing off kost major religions after calling their gods false and demons some of these jews declare a guy named Jesus their prophet in hopes of following the path zoroastrianism took, the idea of having some human that claims to have communicated with their god adds legitimacy. some of the jews disagree and say he isn't the prophet, the people that believe him to be the prophet break off and form early christianity, and immediately do as they did before and call the jews' belief illegitimate. then The Roman Catholic church and the middle ages happens and christianity decides to borrow some things once more, they take a page from zoroastrianism again and make up a super evil figure called the devil, who's ultimately a mix of demons in general, the angel of judgement satan, the angel of disaster mastema, and the fallen angel lucifer. this would later be the reason why the're so much confusion as to whom the devil is in modern christianity. they also steal the image of Nike and Victoria (winged goddesses) for their various angel statues and pictures. Thy also claim several gods such as the celtic Brigid were not gods, but instead saints while other gods like Diana are claimed to be Demons.

all the while this is happening the middle east has a man claim to be a second, and final, prophet, creating Islam
These two groups go at it and expand a fair bit over the next several hundred years, bringing us to now for the most part.

So there you have it. a trio of religions with a history of infighting, shit talking other groups, and a god of war
>>
In the world we live in, with our knowledge and understanding of biology and genetics and the evidence we have; I cannot fathom how anyone believes in god.

>the prophet muhammed who is the only true prophet of God according to islam
Nah, they acknowledge the other prophets and the books they brought down.
But Muhammed was the latest and last. In Islam, Jesus was a prophet, for example.
>>
>>685164942
then you believe in the shahada and therefore everything muhammed the pedo warlord says
>>
It is if you only follow the five pillars of Islam aka the only important parts.

>Declaration of faith and trust that professes that there is only one God (Allah) and that Muhammad is God's messenger.

>Salat (ṣalāh) is the Islamic prayer. Salat consists of five daily prayers according to the Sunna; the names are according to the prayer times: Fajr (dawn), Dhuhr (noon), ʿAṣr (afternoon), Maghrib (evening), and ʿIshāʾ (night).

>Zakāt or alms-giving is the practice of charitable giving based on accumulated wealth.

>Fasting

>Pilgrimage to Mecca (at least once in your life)

>>
If religious text is left up to interpretation, and there is varying consensus on a meaning of that text, the unfortunate reality is that the religious followers who interpret that information and are the majority, become literal representations of that text. Since a shocking amount of Muslim men and women follow the Koran and take the representation of that book to be violent, it is inevitable that the meaning of that book takes on a violent connotation, and the religion as well. Many people who follow Islam standby and do nothing as the acts of violence are committed, meaning that it becomes acceptance. Religion does change over time and may take on different forms, but as of this moment, Islam cannot be a religion of peace.
