Title: My Advice to the Muslims who are debating non-Muslims

 Usually in open discussions  , Christians start to divert out of the topic by pretending that Islam permits violence by quoting a couple of verses from The Holy Quran such as 9:29 ..

If Christians divert then try using the easy point which is explaining from the Quran to them , if they won't listen then quote the fighting verses mentioned in their bible ..

Why did the Muslims have to fight the unbelievers ?

First of all , we know what Mohammed pbuh suffered from pain after starting declaring Islam .. Abu Lahab one of his uncles and his wife used to put woods and fire in front of the road of Muslims ... however, Muslims did not do anything that time , rather Allah promised hell for Abu Lahab and that his money does not give him an advantage in his judgement , also Allah promised to put around his wife's neck is a rope of [twisted] fiber. 

The leaders of Quraish also wanted troubles to the prophet and his followers , they wanted their place in Quraish to be the highest such as the Jews of Banu Quraiza , Banu Qainuqaa , and Banu Al Nuthaeer who begrudged the rise of Islam there ...
so they started mobilizing men to go against them and fight them ....


So after the migration of the prophet and his followers to Al-Habasha ( Ethiopia ) .. the King therein accepted the message of the prophet but before the migration Quraish knew about this  so they sent " Amr " who was a friend of the King to fire them out ..  but he failed because Al-Najashi already believed in the message ..

Quraish's animosity increased now ... they wanted to make Mohammed strange in Mecca so they made troubles to the muslims in Mecca

SO THAT'S WHY MUSLIMS THAT TIME WANTED TO FIGHT !
AND THEY GOT WHAT THEY WANT

ALLAH REVEALED :


Surah Hajj Chapter 22 Verses 39-40
" Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom
war is made because they are oppressed,and most surely
Allah is well able to assist them;"

40 "Those who have been expelled from their homes
without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord
is Allah. And had there not been Allah's repelling
some people by others, certainly there would have been
pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and
mosques in which Allah's name is much remembered; and
surely Allah will help him who helps His cause; most
surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.

Moreover , Allah promised Muslims to win this battle by revealing angels to fight in the first battle , the battle of Badr .  {Quran 8:12}

and this PROPHECY WAS FULFILLED ...

During the battle Abu Jahil , was about to die , he asked one of the Muslims , "who are those spiritual creatures who are wearing white clothes " ? the Muslims replied " The angels " This disbeliever arrogant said " it is honor for us that we fought the people of earth and the people of the sky ( heaven ) " .


So this is why Allah revealed fighting verses in the Quran , also this is a proof that Muslims themselves that time wanted to fight for their rights .. from Surah Muhammed :

" Those who believe say, "Why has a surah not been sent down? But when a precise surah is revealed and fighting is mentioned therein, you see those in whose hearts is hypocrisy looking at you with a look of one overcome by death. And more appropriate for them [would have been] " .



#2 Accusation that Quran is from Satan.

Dear Muslim , start debunking this lie by quoting Quranic verses testifying that Quran is not from Satan , so the claim is originally refuted !

Allah revealed :

"And the Qur'an is not the word of a devil, expelled [from the heavens]." [ Surat Al Takwir Chapter 81 Verse 25 ]

"And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah . Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing." [ Surat Al A'rat Chapter 7 Verse 200 ]

In the face of amazing evidence put forth by us Muslims that the Quran is a miracle (free of contradiction, only one version of Quran, memorised by millions, scientific facts, inimitable nature, etc) you often find that a knee jerk reaction by Christians is to make the claim that it is Satan that has created the Quran which is why it has these amazing features, ultimately to trick us into believing it is from God so that we go to hell. You can respond with the following:

1. Ask them how they can be sure that Satan hasn

Assalamo Alaykom brother Hassan,
 
I read your interesting post. May Allah reward you heaven for your efforts. I just want to add few verses from Quran.

If a non-Muslim ask you about the fighting verses in Quran, you answer this is for those who begin hostilities against Muslims. This is called “self defense”. Allah (The Almighty God) said in Quran:
•   (2:190) Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.

And before Muslims are allowed to begin fighting (for self-defense), Muslims must first negotiate for peace, but if the non-Muslims disagreed, then I believe that every human on earth would agree that Muslims have every single right to self-defense.
•   (2:208) O believers, enter the peace, all of you, and follow not the steps of Satan; he is a manifest foe to you.

Therefor, the fighting verses you are asking for are examples of what’s happened to those who began fighting against Prophet Mohammad.

If non-Muslims don’t fight Muslims, then Muslims must deal with non-Muslims kindly and justly i.e. live together as neighbors and friends, work together to produce best quality products, protect them if they ask for protection, etc. Allah (The Almighty God) said in Quran:
•   (60:8) Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

Prophet Mohammad said:
•   Let whosoever believes in Allah and in the Last Day honor his neighbor.
•   Receiving your friend with a smile is a type of charity and putting some water in your neighbors bucket is a charity.
•   A man walking along a path felt very thirsty. Reaching a well he descended into it, drank his fill and came up. Then he saw a dog with its tongue hanging out, trying to lick up mud to quench its thirst. The man saw that the dog was feeling the same thirst as he had felt so he went down into the well again and filled his shoe with water and gave the dog a drink. Allah forgave his sins for this action. The Prophet was asked: Messenger of Allah, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals? He said, There is a reward for kindness to every living thing.


Therefore, it doesn’t make any sense at all that Prophet Mohammad wants Muslims to kill for no reason while on the other hand is promoting good conduct towards the neighbor and the dog. Also, it doesn't make any sense at all that if Satan helped Prophet Mohammad inventing the Quran to tell him to promote towards peace and charity!!!
