A Peaceful Religion? Thoughts on Islam by Naomi Elliott

I woke up this morning, and found an article waiting for me. It was written by my 17 year old daughter. She asked if I would share it, and I thought that now is a good time to share an article about Islam.

A Peaceful Religion? Thoughts on Islam 
by Naomi Elliott

For the last four hours I have been studying the Koran -- also known as the Holy Koran unto Muslims everywhere. I have also been studying their creeds in the last few hours. If people who say that Islam is a PEACEFUL religion read the Koran they would see this is simply not so.

There are 1.57 billion Muslims in the world with an average of 13-25 percent considered radical -- 1.57 billion is a huge number and over 14% of our world population. The radical Muslims make up .04% of our world’s population.

The thing most do not realize is that these radical Muslims are following their creed word for word. Muslims who are not following word for word, according to their own book, are as bad as the unbelievers.

While I was reading the Koran, I realized that what I was reading sounded more and more like the regimes of Hitler and of the Kim leaders in North Korea.

One important thing you need to understand. Islam is NOT a race. It IS a religious cult that we must not be ignorant about. I will say this right now I love Muslims.


But, we must remember just because we love our enemies does not mean we let ourselves be unprotected. What I am saying is that we need to pray for those who seek to hurt us. Luke 6:28 and Matt 5:44 reminds us of this.

While I was writing this reports of more guns and bombs going off in Paris came in. I hope everyone keeps the world in their prayers tonight [and always].

Excerpt from THE KORAN- AL-FATH (The victory)

Verse 48.16
Say unto those of the wandering Arabs who were left behind: Ye will be called against a folk of mighty prowess, to fight them until they surrender; and if ye obey, Allah will give you a fair reward; but if ye turn away as ye did turn away before, He will punish you with a painful doom.

Verse 48.17
There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.

Verse 48.18
Allah was well pleased with the believers when they swore allegiance unto thee beneath the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down peace of reassurance on them, and hath rewarded them with a near victory;

Verse 48.19
And much booty that they will capture. Allah is ever Mighty, Wise.

Verse 48.20
Allah promiseth you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance, and hath withheld men's hands from you, that it may be a token for the believers, and that He may guide you on a right path.

Verse 48.21
And other (gain), which ye have not been able to achieve, Allah will compass it, Allah is Able to do all things.

Verse 48.22
And if those who disbelieve join battle with you they will take to flight, and afterward they will find no protecting friend nor helper.

Verse 48.23
It is the law of Allah which hath taken course aforetime. Thou wilt not find for the law of Allah aught of power to change.

Verse 48.24
And He it is Who hath withheld men's hands from you, and hath withheld your hands from them, in the valley of Mecca, after He had made you victors over them. Allah is Seer of what ye do.

Verse 48.25
These it was who disbelieved and debarred you from the Inviolable Place of Worship, and debarred the offering from reaching its goal. And if it had not been for believing men and believing women, whom ye know not - lest ye should tread them underfoot and thus incur guilt for them unknowingly; that Allah might bring into His mercy whom He will - If (the believers and the disbelievers) had been clearly separated We verily had punished those of them who disbelieved with painful punishment.

Verse 48.26
When those who disbelieve had set up in their hearts zealotry, the zealotry of the Age of Ignorance, then Allah sent down His peace of reassurance upon His messenger and upon the believers and imposed on them the word of self-restraint, for they were worthy of it and meet for it. And Allah is Aware of all things.

Verse 48.27
Allah hath fulfilled the vision for His messenger in very truth. Ye shall indeed enter the Inviolable Place of Worship, if Allah will, secure, (having your hair) shaven and cut, not fearing. But He knoweth that which ye know not, and hath given you a near victory beforehand.

Verse 48.28
He it is Who hath sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may cause it to prevail over all religion. And Allah sufficeth as a Witness.

Verse 48.29
Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves. Thou (O Muhammad) seest them bowing and falling prostrate (in worship), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) acceptance. The mark of them is on their foreheads from the traces of prostration. Such is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel - like as sown corn that sendeth forth its shoot and strengtheneth it and riseth firm upon its stalk, delighting the sowers - that He may enrage the disbelievers with (the sight of) them. Allah hath promised, unto such of them as believe and do good works, forgiveness and immense reward. "
