I hate what radicals have done to the beautiful teaching found in the Quran. Similar to what Radicals in the past did to the teaching in the Bible.
The only time Mohammed taught war was in self defense. Jihad is the Spirit that a pacifist can call on to defend himself. Mohammed taught to seek
peace with your enemy first, but if your enemy continues to attack you God will give the pacifist a Spirit of Jihad to help battle the enemy.
This was not the teaching of Martyrdom, but a teaching of victory. God granting victory to the oppressed no matter what the numbers, because God
never takes the side of the aggressor.
If someone dies defending themselves they are granted access to heaven.
There is no such thing as a Holy War, all wars are an abomination to God. However he doesn't expect you to be a pacifist when someone is trying to
forcefully harm you and take what is yours.
The Quran says if at any point the aggressor stops and seeks peace, then all are to lay down their weapons, because God is a God of peace, not war.
There are no virgins for martyrs. This is BS found only in the Hadith.
Only if you disagree with your right to defend yourself would you disagree with the Quran.
The Hadith and Radical Islam does not represent Mohammed or the teaching of the Quran in any way. And the bible did not teach Christians to do the
crusades found in history books.
Using Religion to justify an act of aggression for anything other than self defense is always an abomination to God.
