Violence against anyone is unIslamic, especially against women and children. This article is in view of the recent suicide madness in the city of Quetta in Pakistan, nine women and several children, many countless times over since decades and no reprieve? Any Muslim perpetrating such shameless acts is not worthy of the privilege to be called a Muslim as clearly stated in Hadith and Quran. _‘Do not become infidels after me by killing each other.’ Prophet Muhammad/Hadith Al-Bukhari [1:22-OB] _‘Non-combatants were not killed even in a battle, there being a prohibition against the killing of women and children.’ Hadith 16 Prophet Muhammad’s sayings: _That person is not one of us who inviteth others to aid him in violence. And he is not one of us who fighteth for his tribe in injustice. And he is not one of us who dieth in assisting his tribe in tyranny. _The creation is God’s family; for its sustenance is from Him. Therefore the most beloved unto God is the person who doeth good to God’s family. _Kindness is a mark of faith. And whoever does not kindness hath no faith. _‘The way of blame is only against those who oppress mankind, and wrongfully rebel in the earth. For such there is a painful doom.’ 42:42 Quran _‘O ye messengers! Eat of good things and do right. Lo I am aware of what you do. And lo, this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty unto Me. But the mankind have broken their religion amongst them into sects, each sect rejoicing it its tenants.’ 23:51-53 Quran _‘Establish worship, pay the poor due, and bow your heads with those who bow in worship. Enjoin ye righteousness upon mankind while ye yourselves forget to practice it??? And ye are readers of the Scriptures! Have you no sense???’ 2:43-44 Quran _Violence is neither permitted to Muslims, nor sanctioned under any circumstance, yet Islamic world today is engaged in violence amongst Muslims in the name of what? Ethnic cleansing? Territorial rights? Right to kill? Right to oppress women? Right to fundamentalism? Where are the religious leaders with sound knowledge who should be denouncing these acts of violence all over the world? All gone, is it possible, as stated in Hadith??? _‘Allah does not take away the knowledge, by taking it away from the hearts of the people, but takes it away by the death of the religious learned men till when none of the religious learned men remains. People will take as their leaders ignorant persons who when consulted with give their verdict without knowledge. So they will go astray and will lead the people astray.’ Prophet Muhammad/ Hadith Al-Bukhari [1:100-OB] _‘Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection.’ Prophet Muhammad/ Hadith Al-Bukhari [1:38-OB] _‘God hath not created anything better than Reason. The benefit of which God gives are on its account, and understanding is by it, and God’s wrath is caused by disregard of it.’ Prophet Muhammad _‘Announce O Muhammad, unto My slaves that verily I am Forgiving, the Merciful.’ 15:49 Quran _Willing to be touched by Grace, may God’s Guidance come to the misguided horde of suicide-bombers, so that all could work together for love, peace and harmony in the world.
