00:00:01--> 00:00:04

Quran mentions explicitly in

00:00:05--> 00:00:08

chapter number five was the machete, if anyone

00:00:10--> 00:00:35

kills any other human being, unless it be for murder, or for spreading corruption in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity. The Quran says, if any human being kills any other innocent human being, whether Muslim or non Muslim, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity. And there was continues, if anyone faith and human being whether Muslim or non Muslim, it is as though he has saved the whole of humanity.

00:00:37--> 00:01:12

I think student of comparative religion, I have not come across any verse in any scripture besides the Quran, which is so explicit against terrorism, against killing innocent human beings, it failed that if any human being kills any other human being who's innocent, whether Muslim or non Muslim, it is as though you have killed the whole of humanity. And I have not come across any words in any other scripture, any other scripture besides the Quran, which promotes the prevention of terrorism and it says, if any human being fails any human life, whether Muslim or non Muslim, it is as though you have saved the whole of humankind.

00:01:13--> 00:01:27

So Islam condemns all forms of terrorism, Islam condemns the killing of any innocent human being, irrespective of caste, color, creed, irrespective of which nationality belongs to irrespective of which religion it belongs to.

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

Islam, and I

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

condemn all forms of terrorism.

00:01:35--> 00:01:38

I also condemn the 911,

00:01:39--> 00:01:52

which took place on 11th of September 2001, the Twin Tower bombing in New York, where few 1000 people were killed. I condemn the seven, seven seventh of July 2005.

00:01:53--> 00:02:27

London bombing by more than 15,000 people were killed. I also condemned the serial train bomb blast that took place in Bombay on the 11th of July 2016, where more than 180,000 people were killed, also condemned the Gujarat massacre, the riots which were poorly planned, which took place in Gujarat, in India, where innocent few 1000 Muslims were killed. I condemn all sorts of terrorism, where innocent human beings are killed, irrespective whether they're Muslim or non Muslim. And whatever acts of terrorism,

00:02:29--> 00:02:38

which takes the life of innocent human being is to be condemned, including suicide bombing. Now we have recently in the past few decades,

00:02:39--> 00:03:02

that a person goes, he puts up a bomb, goes in the marketplace, goes in a tube station on the road, and he blows himself up and with him, takes several other human lives. This act is not tolerable in any religion, especially Islam. suicide bombing, innocent human beings are killed, is totally private in Islam.

00:03:05--> 00:03:25

Unfortunately, to Islam is a religion, which condemns all sorts of terrorism or acts of terror that took place in the past, which is even taking place in this 21st century. Even though it condemns unfortunately, today, the media portrays Islam as a religion which promotes terrorism
