What are the evil quotes in Quran?Does it support killing people?Cause muslims are always saying that Quran is a book of love and im having hard time to believe that

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. These include commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to hell if they do not join the slaughter. 

The context of violent passages is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God that should never, ever be critiqued. Most contemporary Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book’s call to arms. Moderates, Islamists and jihadists read the same book but they interpret it differently, all calling each other “not real Muslims” and their interpretation is “not real Islam.”

The call for love in the Quaran is not a call to love for all, instead Muhammad and Allah will only love you if you become Muslim and you submit, which is what Islam directly translates to - submission. What many people don’t understand though is the Quran is not exactly the equivalent of the Bible. The Quran is the holy truth of Allah while Islam’s closest version of the Bible is the Hadith. They are the historical accounts of the life of Mohammad, all his actions and sayings and it explains the Quran and Allah’s preachings. Muslims use this as the second source of Islamic law/Sharia law so anytime they say “well this isn’t in the Quran so it has nothing to do with Islam,” I’ll bet you it’s in the Hadith. 

It’s the scripts within the Hadith that make it blatantly clear the type of man Muhammad was, and the only way to describe him is being a bloodthirsty warlord hellbent on conquering the infidels and who forced a 9 year old girl to marry him and have sex with him when he was 53. Yet they tell us that Muhammad was the most perfect, flawless man and we even in Western countries risk being charged and locked up if we say anything that goes against that belief. Because it’s Islamophobia to tell the truth, apparently.

THE QURAN TEACHES US TO BE OPTIMISTIC

I always find myself questioning the things I do, even if I was the one who opted to do it from the beginning. I frequently ask myself whether I’m doing the right thing. Whether there’s any good in the things I choose to put myself in. The school I go to, the activities I join, the events I attend, the friends I choose to keep. Are my decisions going to benefit my future or are they just a waste of time? I wonder if I’m really doing anything right these days. You see, I have always had this fear in me. This fear I can’t specifically explain. I often am afraid if I make the wrong choices, especially when I have to make big important life decisions. What if my plans don’t work out? Who will I be in 10 years? Will I ever really figure it out?

I hate self-doubt. You know when they say we are our own biggest critics, they’re hella right.

Sometimes, the plans that I have for myself, are not exactly the plans that Allah has for me. I get myself in a relationship, and it ends tragically. I take up a course I thought I’m good at, and later fail miserably. I apply for a scholarship, but then find out I was rejected. I plan to graduate on time, but got sick and am told to defer my studies. All these circumstances, it all leads to self-doubt. Will I ever be good enough for anything?

A few days ago, I was reading Surah Al-Kahf and stumbled upon a verse that struck a chord with me. It was so beautiful I made it my phone’s wallpaper lol. The verse goes:

إِلَّا أَن يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَاذْكُر رَّبَّكَ إِذَا نَسِيتَ وَقُلْ عَسَىٰ أَن يَهْدِيَنِ رَبِّي لِأَقْرَبَ مِنْ هَٰذَا رَشَدًا 

“Except “if Allah wills.” And remember your Lord when you forget & say “May my Lord guide me to what is right” (18:24)

Perfect timing. This verse isn’t only a do’a but also a statement of optimism. “Asa” according to the arabic language is a verb used to express hope. Subhanallah, Allah is teaching us that the most fundmental thing we need is His guidance. He is teaching us that in the end, He knows best what is good for us and all we have to do is give our best in the things we do. The rest is Allah’s job. I learnt that if we do what is good, our effort will never go to waste, even if things don’t turn out the way we want it. Our compensation is with Allah. 

The verse screams optimism. It says “when you forget” because whenever something bad/failure befalls us, we tend to lose hope. We are bound to feel lost & confused. Been there a lot of time. So this powerful verse is telling us ‘no, don’t give up, hang in there and ask Allah to guide you’. He created us, He created the stars and the universe, so He definitely knows what is best for us. Whatever happens yesterday, stays there. If we have failed in the past, that failure should not dictate our future. 

“Amazing is the affair of the believer, verily all of his affair is good and this is not for no one except the believer. If something of good/happiness befalls him he is grateful and that is good for him. If something of harm befalls him he is patient and that is good for him” (Saheeh Muslim #2999)

So I guess we will never really have all the answers, but it’s perfectly okay, What we do know is that we can always ask Allah to guide us to what’s the best for us.

As long has we put our trust in him, we are in good hands.

No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself for the outcome of all affairs is determined by Allah’s Decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come on your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee.
