"Islamic Terrorism"

By Muhammed Emin

My name is Muhammed. I'm 30 years old and I'm an executive manager in a huge company in İstanbul. Nowadays people talk about "Islamic terrorism," but this is a contradiction in terms. Because terrorism of any kind is against the foundation of Islam. In fact, all forms of unjust aggression are forbidden by Islam.

It is important to notice that even if the terrorists have Muslim identities, the terror they perpetrated cannot be labelled "Islamic terror," just as it would not be called "Jewish terror" if the perpetrators were Jews or "Christian terror" if they were Christians.

Murdering of innocent people is the most obvious examples of mischief. So a Muslim who has fear of God can never commit such an act. A true Muslim educated in the fine moral teaching of Islam approaches everyone with the love that Islam expects.

A Muslim lends beauty to the world and improves it. All true Muslims denounce terrorism of any kind, and share the sorrows of its victims.

Muhammed Emin [Istanbul / Turkey]
