Attacking Public Spaces is not Jihad, it is Terrorism!

Allah the Almighty has stated in the Holy Qur’an on murder, that, " would be as if he killed all of mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind…" (Ch 5, v32)

"Indeed, we honoured the children of Adam (Mankind)…" (Ch 17, v70)

The clear instruction in the Quran is therefore that it is never permissible to attack and terrorise non-combatants anywhere (in streets, cinemas, pubs/bars, restaurants and places of worship).  This is clear terrorism which Islam does not permit.  This is never in the name of Islam, in fact discrediting Islam and whoever dies whilst carrying out these attacks is not a martyr, but a terrorist.

Islam is there to protect the lives, property, honour and wealth of all humans.

The Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings be upon him) stated:

"Those who are merciful, Allah shows mercy to them…If you show mercy to those on the Earth, the one in the skies (Allah Almighty) will show mercy to you." (Sunan Abu Dawood, # 4941)
