SPECIAL FEATURES Religion of Islam Faith & practice American scholars sites Questions & answers Lectures & event News & Articles Jihad = Struggle
Today's extra ordinary subject matter is that Islam is being generally regarded as the enemy and as a threat to humanity. However, it has also been portrayed as a hostile, fanatical and violent and even idolatrous religion. These attributes and many social vices being linked with the religion necessitated the need to design and develop a site that would send the message of Islam to the entire world. A site that provides basic information about Islam, its various forms of application, their significance in the practical life of man and the nature and scope of the system which it wants to establish to bring virtue, goodness and peace in the lives of people. A site that will give place to better understanding of Islam and closer cooperation based on tolerance, facts, honesty and understanding in the areas of agreement and disagreement and respect for differences where we may disagree.

Islamic fundamentalism in the context of terrorism
If contemporary terrorism is to be accurately and thoroughly understood clinically and impartially, it is necessary at the outset to dispel one current political and religious myth: Islamic fundamentalism in the context of terrorism is a misnomer, since a true Muslim who adheres to the fundamental tenets of Islam must view terrorism as a serious crime and a blasphemy. Islam not only forbids acts of terrorism such as the killing of women, children and unarmed or surrendered combatants but also forbids the destruction of public and private properties, buildings, even the felling of a tree if it has a single green leaf on it is forbidden. Over one hundred thousand victims of terrorism in Algeria, Nigeria and across Africa, the Middle East were Muslims, and several hundred thousand Muslim police officers and soldiers, from all over the world, are directly engaged in fighting terrorism and have taken substantial casualties in doing so. The simple conclusion to draw as to the causes of terrorism today can be attributed neither to the adherents to any single ethnicity, religion, poverty or social class but that a significant number of the more outrageous terrorist acts may be attributed to a small number of terrorists, who have an ulterior or a political motive and use religion or other reason as a mere tool to justify their acts; and they are entirely divorced from their enclave: social class, religion, culture or ethnic background who distort it and use it as a convenient cover to try to legitimize their actions in the popular minds. But under sub-measures of the world counter-terror, the surveillance discourse serves to control and regulate Muslims' perception of terrorism and the undertone of Western values and national security narrative, which continue to normalize and perpetuate anti-Muslim sentiment and construct Muslims as “suspect” communities at every possible opportunity. This ensures that anti-Muslim racism remains a key feature of contemporary western society, which is unfortunate. Read more in 2.3 Islam and Terrorism or Islam versus the West Connotation. It may be difficult, perhaps impossible, to stop a determined individual who wants to commit an act of terrorism if they get through every security check, but some things can be done to prevent, stop and limit the acts and the spread of extremist violence and radicalization of young people; and divert their support.

The word "Islam" is derived from the Arabic root "SLM" which means, among other things, peace, purity, submission and obedience. "Islam" means submission and total devotion to God alone. Similarly, the word Muslim is used in the Qur'an to describe one who submits to the will of God, and devotes his worship to Him alone. The Qur'an considers Abraham, David, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, and all other messengers and prophets, as Submitters, including any of their true followers. Muslims believe in the first commandment in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and in the Qur'an the Final Testament.
