The Koran is a book of peace?

Qur’an:9:88 “The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah’s Cause.”

Qur’an:9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Qur’an:9:112 “The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

Qur’an:9:29 “Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”

Ishaq:325 “Muslims, fight in Allah’s Cause. Stand firm and you will prosper. Help the Prophet, obey him, give him your allegiance, and your religion will be victorious.”

Qur’an:8:39 “Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.”

Qur’an:8:39 “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”

Ishaq:324 “He said, ‘Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must have no rivals.’”

Update:

Christianity bashers , your a day late and a dollar short.the old testament has been revised to the New Testament which are the gospels of peace!

    hey jennifer your quotes are out of context.

    [2:256] There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in Allah has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. Allah is Hearer, Omniscient.

    2:272] You are not responsible for guiding anyone. Allah is the only one who guides whoever chooses (to be guided). Any charity you give is for your own good. Any charity you give shall be for the sake of Allah. Any charity you give will be repaid to you, without the least injustice.

    If anyone slays a person- unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land -it would be as if he slew all people. And if anyone saves a life,it would be as if he saved the life of all people. Qur'an 5:32

    Oh you who believe!Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be against rich or poor, for Allah can best protect both.

    Follow not the cravings of your hearts, lest you swerve, and if you distort justice or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well acquainted with all that you do.

    Qur'an 4:135

    "Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loves not the transgressors" (2:190). In subsequent verses, Muslims are called upon to stop fighting when the opposing party ceases its aggression.

    yes the quran says to fight those who oppress you, but if they want peace then you should seek peace your only quoting the verses that say to fight.

    I believe that the evidence speaks for itself. And there is one more point to note; Israel (Old Testament) was not told to kill all non-Jews throughout the world. The Jews only drove a specific number of peoples out of the land of Palestine. The Jews were not told to kill Gentiles outside their land; once the land was taken, the warring stopped.

    This point alone shows quite a difference between the Koran and the Old Testament.

    Do not look upon anyone as unclean no matter who they are or what they worship. God let Peter know this also in a dream, because there will always be good Muslims, and bad Muslims. Just like in the Bible there were Bad Jews, and good Jews. Which proves that every one is a sinner no matter what group or religion they are in.

    If u already didn't know, it is said that a koran that is not in arabic is told not to be a "Koran". If u learned arabic and read the "real" koran, there is some stuff like that in it but not like the way u say it. U make it seem like its only a book of violence. Yeah, like there's no violence in the Bible. 50% of korans that are in English are fake. I bought some korans in English version (bought somewhere about 7) and found out all seven were in one way or another different. Hope this helped.

    No it's not but they will say it is. They can lie to you and it's OK as you are an infidel and not worth the truth.

    "ambush them using every stratagem of war" This includes coming into "other" countries and saying they are peacful until it is time to make war on others.

    And?...so does the bible say "an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" and most of us do not take it literally. Plus, its very easy for someone who is an outsider to a religion or whatever...to misinterpret things. We werent raised muslim or other religion so we dont understand their beliefs and values. We know for a fact many dont understand catholicism, whether its people who are or were catholics, and non-catholics.

    The quran does not put down any religion in jesus's time we belived he did bring the bible or in arabic al-engile and we belive in jesus as much as christians do but the only diff is that we belive jesus was a prophet not a god or gods son

    Islam is a hate-based religion. They are taught to hate and destroy all non-believers (the infidel) and those teachings come from the Koran.

    Religion is the root of all evil.

    Muslim, Jewish, Christian, other

    They ALL incite hatred, violence, and non-thinking.

    Find God within yourself. Be a good person.
