In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

  • The commands of God (Holy Quran) is in our hands.
    Why do we pay attention to the opinions and commands of others?
    What do you call this?
    Dear friends, There are some people who have never read the Holy Quran
    and without having a minimal level of understanding of this Book and its structure,
    they are constantly looking for some verses in the Holy Quran to prove their false point of view.
    They make allegations against Quran by taking some verses completely out of its context.
    Such deliberate misinterpretations are nothing but a cheap shot.
    In Islam not only normal friendship with non-Muslims is not prohibited, but also Muslims are specifically encouraged 
    to deal justly and compassionately with those who do not fight with them and who do not drive them out of their homes and lands.
    As a matter of fact, One can come to the conclusion that,
    Islam does condemn violence against innocent non-Muslims who don’t initiate an attack against Muslims:
    “God does not forbid you, with regard to those who do not fight you for (your) faith, nor drive you out of your homes; from dealing kindly and justly with them; for God  loves those who are just.
    God only forbids you, with regard to those who fight you for (your) faith, and drive you out of your homes,
    and support (others) in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection).
    Whoever seeks such protection, they are the unjust.” (Ch.60, V8, V9).
    I strongly suggest these people read the articles written by Mr. Bazargan and Dr. Gilani in this site;
