What Does Islam Say about Terrorism?

Islam, a religion of mercy, does not permit terrorism. In the Quran, God has said:

“God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers.” (Quran 60:8)

Condemnation of terrorist act committed by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

All Muslims must condemn terrorist attacks. Terrorism is not condoned by Islam under any circumstances; and it violates the principles of justice and compassion that Islam represents.

The condemnation of terrorism is deeply rooted in true Islamic values based on the Qur’anic instructions which consider the unjust killing of a single person equivalent to the killing of all humanity (Quran, 5:32 ). It also forbids destruction and mischief on earth (Quran, 28:77,83). This violence is contrary to the authentic universal core message of peace, love, tolerance and mutual co-operation taught by Islam and all of the God’s Prophets.
