My Muslim friend posted the following on my facebook page after posting that ISIS is no different than the KLU KLUX KLAN, both psuedo-religious group (not really Muslim or Christian). What’s the best way to defend the faith against such a comment?
But my main question is regarding the Catholic Inquisitions in comparison to the Islamic teachings on “Munafiqeen”/Hypocrites. Didn’t Catholics persecute and kill off those who pretended to be Catholic?
I am trying to debate my Muslim friend, but at the same time be fair in my judgment.
Thank you and God Bless You!
I explained MANY of these so called “Quran’s Verses of Violence” to you. I told you they are taken OUT OF CONTEXT.
I DONT have to time to do all that again. I will only explain the first 3 verses. Whats written after the these verses is complete nonsense.
///// "Quran (2:191-193) - “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…
but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” /////
These verses came when Muslims had taken refuge in the city of Madina & were being attacked from their previous home city of Makkah (Mecca) which was a rich & powerful city.
So the Meccans integrated their own people in Madina as spies who were Idol Worshipers like Meccans but told the Prophet & his companions that they had converted to Islam. Those are called “Munafiqeen” or Hypocrites. Now Muslims were forbidden to kill other Muslims so they were totally confused.
THATS when these Quranic Verses came ! ! !
