Does the Quran tell Muslims to kill non Muslims?

Does the Quran tell Muslims to kill non Muslims?

Of course no.

 

It is the opposite. Muslims are commanded by God to treat people; of all beliefs and cultures; friendly, kindly, and peacefully unless they fight us on our religion or they occupy our lands and drive us away from our homes

In the Quran, Holy book of Islam, God has said (meaning English Translation):

 

” God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers.” (Quran, chapter 60/ verse 8)

 

Even in time of war, Prophet Muhammad (peace upon him) used, in any military conflict, to prohibit soldiers from killing women, children, old people, or any civilian. He would advise them:

 

{…Do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child.} And he also said:

 

{Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years.}

 

Also, the Prophet Muhammad (peace upon him) listed murder as the second of the major sins (the first major sin is denying the oneness of God), and he even warned that on the Day of Judgment, {The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed.}

 

Quran states that Allah (God) created all people from Adam and Eve and made them in different cultures, races, and faiths to compete and cooperate together for the mankind prosperity and not to fight.

 

 

Those who think that Muslims hate Christians can refer to the Quran sayings (meaning English translation):

 

“…. You will find the nearest in love to Muslims those who say “we are Christians’. That is because amongst them are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world and they are not arrogant. And when they listen to the Quran revelation received by the Messenger (Muhammad), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognized. … So because of what they said, Allah (God) rewarded them ….”

 

[Quran, chapter 5, verses 82-86]

 

God explains in Quran that he caused the different nations with different beliefs only for them to compete in doing good deeds that bring them closer to God, but not to stay in conflict or hatred. Quran says:

 

\”… If Allah had willed, He would have made you one nation (one belief), but that may test you in what He has given you; so compete in good deeds; then God will inform you about that in which you used to differ\”

[Quran, chapter 5, verse 48]

 

 

In addition, the Quran Golden Rule says (Meaning English translation):

“There is no compulsion in religion…”

[Quran, Chapter 2, Verse 256]
