Islam is one of the largest religions in the world. When a person says "La Illaha Ill Allah Mohammad eh Rasoullilah,"" (There is one God "Allah- and Mohammad is his messenger) he or she becomes a Muslim. This phrase teaches peace and implies harmony; in no way does it mean to inflict harmful acts on others or to be a terrorist. Terrorism is not, in any way, affiliated with Islam; in fact, it contradicts the belief of Islam. In addition, there is a misconception that has developed which links Islam and terrorism together. The media has been a big contributor to this misconception in many ways.
In the religion of Islam, there are five duties that a Muslim must obey. These are referred to as the five pillars of Islam. Nowhere in these pillars does it state that the killing of other human beings is an obligation. The first pillar consists of the recitation of the Muslim act of faith: "There is only one God, Allah, and Mohammad is His messenger."" The second pillar is the act of praying five times a day, facing in the direction of the Qa'aba in Mecca. The third pillar is the donation of a portion of the surplus of one's wealth to charity. The fourth pillar is fasting during the holy month of Ramadan " a total abstinence of all food and drink from sunrise to sunset. The last pillar is to make a pilgrimage to Mecca (called the Hajj) at least once in a lifetime. These pillars, none of which implies terrorism, are what build the foundation for a Muslim. .
Islam in no way supports the killing of innocent people, the causing of destruction, or creating chaos in the world. In fact, it is one of the most peaceful religions in the world. Islam teaches patience, obedience, peace, and purity. The Holy Quran encourages the practice of obeying and following God, yet ordains his followers to avoid the creation of destruction, war, and any other kind of violence. Islam even teaches its followers not to take revenge against their enemies.
