Muslim doctors and terrorism


#1

In the wake of the recent bomb threats in London and Glasgow, the Islamic Medical Association UK has sent the following letter to ICN. *
No doubt all British Muslim doctors were shocked and horrified to hear about the Muslim doctors who have, allegedly, been involved in terrorist attacks in Glasgow and London.
We strongly believe that a truly practicing Muslim doctor will never intentionally cause harm to any human being, or cause any damage to buildings.
Some may say that unjust, aggressive, British foreign policies might “provoke” some harmful and violent reactions. However no harmful act against any innocent civilian can ever be justified or accepted in Islam.
In the Holy book, the QUR’AN, it says that: to kill an innocent human life it will be, in the eyes of GOD, like killing the whole of mankind! (Please see at the end the Oath of the Muslim Physician).
Muslim doctors, nurses and other health professionals, have faithfully served the British public for many years, surely it would be wrong to stigmatize all Muslim doctors in Britain because of the few accused!
The Oath of a Muslim Physician ***
Praise be to Allah (God), the Teacher, the Unique, Majesty of the heavens, the Exalted, the Glorious, Glory be to Him, the Eternal Being Who created the Universe and all the creatures within, and the only Being Who contained the infinity and the eternity. We serve no other god besides Thee and regard idolatry as an abominable injustice.
Give us the strength to be truthful, honest, modest, merciful and objective.
Give us the fortitude to admit our mistakes, to amend our ways and to forgive the wrongs of others.

Give us the wisdom to comfort and counsel all towards peace and harmony.
Give us the understanding that ours is a profession sacred that deals with your most precious gifts of
life and intellect.
Therefore, make us worthy of this favoured station with honour, dignity and piety so that we may devote our lives to serving mankind, poor or rich, literate or illiterate,
Muslim or non-Muslim
, black or white with patience and tolerance with virtue and reverence, with knowledge and vigilance, with Thy love in our hearts and compassion for Thy servants, Thy most precious creation.

*Hereby we take this oath in Thy name, the Creator of all the Heavens and the earth and follow Thy counsel as Thou has revealed to Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). *
*"WHOEVER KILLS A PERSON (soul) … IT IS AS IF HE KILLED ALL MANKIND, AND WHOEVER SAVES A LIFE, IT IS AS IF HE SAVED THE LIFE OF ALL MANKIND… "(The QUR’AN: Chapter 5, verse 32) *
This medical oath, which is a composite from the historical and contemporary writings of physicians of the Islamic World, was officially adopted by Islamic Medical Association of North America in 1977.
*Dr A Majid Katme (MBBCh, DPM), spokesman: Islamic Medical Association/UK

Perhaps now it is the time to ban the muslim immigrants to secular country and instead… forward them to middle east like Saudi Arabia, they are a rich country, arent they?

Since one of the doctors is linked to it here in Australia, there have been a spate of arrest today as well.

It is quite sad this is now the new way of which they choose to fight.
I pray nothing will come of this new plot.
We put our trust in doctors, lets hope this problem will soon be resolved.

In Islam… faith to Allah is most important than anything. They do not bother to kill anyone just for the sake of Islam.

That is Islam and that is what it teaches… pitiful…:rolleyes:

I think this is good evidence that Mohammedan ideology is violent by its nature and core faith. It is not neccessarily limited to the poorly or uneducated masses in the Muslim world, but is being “justified” by the highly educated.
