bullet Topic: Answers to 101 Misconceptions on Islam
    Posted: 16 February 2017 at 4:27am

This topic is for the benefit of our non-Muslim visitors who may have a wrong understanding of some of the aspects of our religion.

Since the birth of Islam until this day, there have been waves of oppositions to it, non-stop attacks on it, and false information and misconceptions about it.

These misconceptions still surround Islam. Many people believe that Islam encourages violence, supports racism, oppresses women…

But these fallacies are far from the real Islam.

This folder that presents more than 100 of the most common misconceptions about Islam, Allah, Quran, and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), together with answers to each one of them:

How Can Extremists’ Claims Be Countered?

... In this context, then the issue of countering the deeds of the vocal minority is no longer an issue. To make it an issue changes one’s Islamic development from one to being true to its nature, to one of compromising its nature whilst we are still learning ourselves.

Therefore, the question is not how do we counter the vocal minority, but how can the silent majority be more effective in the practice of Islam not for a noisy few, but as a Mercy to mankind?

List of Most Misinterpreted Verses of The Quran

We have written the following series of articles in response to claims made by opponents that the Quran has ‘164 Jihad’ (or some put it as ‘200 Jihad’) verses in it.

In the sense they want to perpetuate this mythical claim that those ‘164 Jihad’ verses sanctions or endorses the killing of disbelievers (non-Muslims) for no reason other than being ‘non-Muslim’.

What we have done in these series of articles is responded to these false claim(s) by showing their textual contexts, backgrounds as to when they were revealed, which battles they refer to, and we’ve provided exegeses ranging from the earliest to the most contemporaneous, so that we can get a better and more comprehensive understanding of these verses.

7 Most Misinterpreted Verses of the Quran

What follows is a sampling of Quranic verses reductionists and hate mongers love to take out of context now put back into context.

1. Quran 5:51

O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

In this verse, the words “Awliya”- plural- or “wali” – singular- has been (badly) translated as “friends” or “friend”; however, the more appropriate translation would be a “guardian, protector, or advocate”. Muslims are to be advocates and protectors for each other. And friends with everyone.

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was kind to the pagans of Mecca and fought them only when they fought him. He made treaties with the Jews of Madinah and honored the treaties until they broke them. He received the Christians of Najran with kindness in Madinah. They argued with him about Islam, but he treated them with honor and respect. 1

Some translate this verse to mean that Muslims should not take the Jews and the Christians for friends who are exclusively friends of each other at the exclusion and detriment of the Muslims, as is seen in Zionism and the Islamophobic lobby...
