Argumentative Essay On Islam Religion

Better Essays
Following the barbaric invasion of the terrorist group, Islamic State, in Iraq further speculation has been circulated around the conception of Islam being the religion of terror and the motive behind the massacre of innocence around the world. As a result of this, and other events the serene religion of Islam have develop into the most embroiled religion to subsist in our society. Although there have been numerous predicaments that challenge the fundamental concept of peace in Islam, it should be insisted that educated people should not be hypnotised by segments of the media. Islam is the world 's second largest religion with 1.6 billion, this correlates to 23% of the world 's population. Is it civilised to paint a pernicious picture of 1.6 …show more content…
Too often I hear those who argue against Islam plea "Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims. The stupidity, inaccuracy, foolishness and idiocy of this seems rather surprising to me. Organisations like the 'KKK ' are never referred to as terrorists, you never see Irish People 's Liberation being referred to as terrorists, you never see Anders Behring Breivik being associated with terrorism or Army of God or Adam Lanza. It is rather saddening while researching this topic an article caught my attention. Adam Lanza was involved in an article of the Dailymail and headline was 'Adam Lanza hated his mother he shot dead because he thought 'she loved the students at Sandy Hook more than him '. This particular headline does not condemn Adam Lanza 's horrifying carnage against the angelic students but rather endeavours to draw sympathetic readers by giving justification for his horrid actions. Once again in the article mentions Lanza 's medical illness but fails to declare that he was a Satan worshipper. The point intended here is that many are seduced into thinking that all terrorists are Muslims because they are repeatedly bombarded(mind the irony) with the word terrorist more than any other …show more content…
There are some Muslim extremists that interpret the Quran in such a disgusting manner but that does not mean all Muslims interpret it in a way which preaches terrorism. As the Muslim community rapidly grows, hate and rage against such a peaceful religion is becoming worrisome. Those who are ambivalent towards the matter should acknowledge it is extremely dangerous to paint a population of 1.6 billion with the same brush. Islam derives from peace, it means peace, it is full of peace. One must judge the religion by the true interpretation of the Quran not the actions of those who supposedly follow it. Fortunately the religion is perfect but Muslims are not, blame the Muslims who commit such evil, not

    What the media industry needs to do, is pass over the walls of stereotypes, and be mature. The fact that people sincerely believe that, because some people who are Muslim are also appalling individuals, the entire population of Muslim people are exactly like that too, is outrageous and frankly juvenile. The media shouldn’t be playing into any kind of stereotypes, because that just encourages racism and further divides our country. For the Muslims it’s a double edged sword, because they are either overlooked completely in the media, or depicted terribly. The representation of Muslim people in the media is racist, dishonest, cruel, and discriminatory.…

    Islamophobia In America

    One could start a lengthy list of people, past and present who fall under this category. Hitler, the KKK, even the American Colonists can be marked up as terrorists. Now, almost all Americans do not look at the Colonists in a negative light, but going by the definition of terrorism, they are just as guilty as anyone else. While their impact on the country was monumental, and was successful in the construction of the United States, they still slaughtered a countless number of Native Americans. To call someone a terrorist, would require them to have committed violent attacks on other people for political reasons, which the majority of the Muslim population, has not done.…

    The terror attacks such as the bombing in Lebanon in 1983, attack at the World Trade Centre in 1993, 9/11 terror attacks in 2001, and continuing ISIS attacks are caused by Muslim terrorists. These events completely changed the image of Islam to the religion that spreads the idea of terrorism. However, it is preposterous that Islam, the religion that promotes peace, supports terrorism. The word "Islam" is derived from "Salaam", meaning peace and submitting to Allah 's will, the God. The face of terror is not the true face of Islam; however, Islam represents peace and does not condone aggressive warfare.…

    In theory, if we don’t blame Christianity for the Klu Klux Klan, why do we blame Islam for ISIS? Muslims around the world are desperately trying to show that they do not condone the violence of ISIS, with other religions also trying to establish sympathy for Islam. Rabbi Marc Schneier, a Jewish pastor who sympathizes with the non-ISIS affiliated Muslims says, “Islamic extremism is a genuine threat to world peace, but those who lump all Muslims together and dismiss as meaningless the courageous stand of the moderate majority against extremism, aren’t helping to win that battle” (qtd. in Malcolm). Despite claims that hate crimes against Muslims have increased, many such as Senator Rubio don’t believe these claims.…

    Although we consider ourselves to be a cultural melting pot, and our constitutional rights give all citizens the comfort of religious freedom; this is largely a theoretical idea rather than the truth. One particularly concerning example is the religion of Islam and the Muslim community face, years of marginalization and stigmatization have contributed to a significant amount of Muslim Americans feeling uncomfortable in their home country. That being said, the typical American’s idea of freedom of religion only extends as far as their comfort level and is primarily based on stereotypical perceptions of the average ‘Muslim’ person, media and other mainstream sources only further misguide our perceptions of what the religion of Islam is actually…

    the article talks and demand a study to find out the main reason behind horrific terrorism attacks (9/11). This article is more persuasive than the former, because it provides some evidence and information to support the thesis. For example, "Why Al-qa 'idah needed to do this as no wise human brothers including Muslims and hurts anyone without any reason". (Afghan paper calls on USA to define what terrorism is, 2007, paragraph 3). there has to be a super power behind, who is funding terrorist and paying them under the table to commence such acts against entire world, "to achieve its strategic objectives ".…

    Effects Of Islamophobia

    Ignorance and misconceptions go together well because if a person is not well informed about a topic people can only base their answer/beliefs on what they are taught. It also does not help that a lot of countries see Islam as a global threat because they think that that the Islam is the “religion of the Sword.” Islam is referred to the “religion of the sword” because back in the Medieval Era, the Prophet was made out to be a violent person as well as the religion was violent, and the beliefs of Islam were irrational. Till this day people still believe that the definition that was made during the Medieval Era is still accurate till this day. People do not realize that this definition was made during the Crusades which was an ongoing between Muslims and Christians for about 200 years. It was obvious that that the Christian’s would make Islamic religion sound terrible since their goal during that time period was to convert as many people to Christianity.…

    Terrorism is more constructed from false interpretations of the Quran and other Islamic scripts. There is proof in the Quran saying specifically that self harm (including suicide) is a sin. Quran 2:95 “and make your own not your own hands contribute to your destruction; but do good; for Allah loves those who do good.” this states specifically that any harm you do to yourself is a sin and is strictly forbidden. Also stated is in Quran 4:28 “ Believers! Do not devour one another possessions wrongfully; rather then that, let there be trading by mutual consent.…

    They are constantly portrayed and labeled as terrorist, but is that a reasonable assumption? A key principle of sharia is that if one is not Muslim they are to discriminate against them, but when pro-Western Muslims come to the US they assimilate into non-Muslim communities. I believe that it is reasonable to say that the majority of Muslims that come to the US are ready to assimilate and leave sharia behind. Sharia can be a very strict and harsh system that people are eager to get away…
