Debunking The Myth That The Qur’an Endorses Violence

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Kaleef K. Karim

It is astonishing to see how Christian extremists, and Zionists love to cherry-pick verses out of the Quran in order to support their conclusion that Islam endorses violence against the innocent. Sadly, the ignorant, bigoted folk spew this further to the masses that Islam is a religion of violence. Let’s be clear – Muslims are never ordered to fight against the innocent. Neither the Quran nor the Hadith endorse violence against the innocent. However, as I have examined in many of verses in their historical context, the Quran does allow people to fight back in self-defence, in order to repel oppression, persecution and tyranny.

The following verses below are used by critics who espouse that Islam is a religion of violence. I have provided scholarly commentaries on the verses, in order to better understand the verses and clarify them through their historical context. Click on the links for more information.

    You have done a great job by telling people the myth that the Quran endorses violence. For those who wants to learn Quran FREE of cost, I would recommend Noorani Qaida App to learn Quran with Tajweed. It is very useful application that will help you recite and read the whole Quran after completion of all of the 17 chapters of it.
