[16:125] Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.
Islam is the way to GENUINE Peace...Naturally, the Quran contains some instructions as to how to deal with aggression, but it strictly forbids aggression. You will often hear and read that the book contains and calls for violence and that Islam is aggressive but that is not true, it simply and in all related verses, the book naturally and logically urges the believers to protect and defend themselves.
Although the Quran commands the believers to protect and defend themselves in many war-related verses, it strictly forbids aggression and that is the bottom line.
[2:190] And fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but DO NOT AGGRESS, GOD DOES NOT LOVE THE AGGRESSOR.
[5:87] O you who believe, do not make unlawful the good things that God has made lawful to you, and do not aggress; God does not love the aggressors.
[7::55] Call on your Lord in humility and in secret. He does not love the aggressors.
[2:208] O you who believe, JOIN IN PEACE, ALL OF YOU/COMPLETELY, and do not follow in the footsteps of the devil. He is to you a clear enemy.
By the way, there is a wrongful translation that translates the word "oudwan" as transgression but that is inaccurate... the word means aggression.
You see, it is only natural for the Muslims and believers to tell the rejectors of the truth, the nonbelievers and non-Muslims as they are rejectors of the truth, idol-worshipers and hypocrites (Kafirs, Mushriks and Munafiqs)... that is a fundamental part of conveying the truth (God's message).
Please keep the following verses in mind:
[2:256] There is NO compulsion in religion; the proper way has been clarified from the wrong way. Whoever rejects evil, and believes in God, indeed he has taken grasp of the strongest hold that will never break. God is a hearer, knower.
[18:29]and say:''The truth is from your Lord, so let whoever desires to believe, and whoever desires to reject. we have prepared for the wicked a fire whose walls will be surrounding them. And if they cry out, they are giving a water like boiling oil which burns their faces. what a dreadful drink and what a miserable place!''
[10:99] And had your Lord willed, all the people on the earth in their entirety would have believed. Would you force the people to make them believe?
[88:21] So remind, for you are but a reminder. [88:22] You have no control over them.
That is the real problem in the entire world, the real problem is in the act of aggression. People are free to believe in whatever they choose to believe in but, they are not suppose to aggress.
In the name of God, the Almighty, the Merciful.
[109:1] Say: "O rejectors of the truth,"
[109:2] "I do not worship what you worship,"
[109:3] "Nor do you worship what I worship,"
[109:4] "Nor will I worship what you worship,"
[109:5] "Nor will you worship what I worship,"
[109:6] "To you is your religion, and to me is mine."
You see, there are many people who are blinded by hate and self-deception going around confusing and deceiving people by falsely accusing Islam of being aggressive and violence... they do not distinguish between Islam and the Sunni so-called Muslims which produces movements such as ISIS and the Shia sect that produces a regime such as the Iranian regime. Please make sure you be fair and make the distinction.
God's message does not condone extremism, fanaticism, and radicalism, on the contrary, it commands people to be fair, balanced and moderate in everything even in worshiping God. The moment a Muslim becomes extreme and radical he or she goes out of the fold of Islam.
[4:58] God orders you to deliver anything you have been entrusted with to its owners. And if you judge between the people, then you shall judge with justice. It is always the best that God prescribes for you. God is Hearer, Seer.
[16:90] God orders justice and goodness and that you shall help your relatives, and He prohibits immorality and vice and transgression. He warns you that you may remember.
