3. “And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys… But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book.” (Qur’an, 31:19-20)

4. The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (peace be upon him) said: “He who gave up disputing while he is right, a palace of high rank in Paradise will be built for him. He who gave up disputing while he is a fabricator, a palace in the center of Paradise will be built for him.” (al-Tirmidhi who declared it as hasan)

5. “There are no people who went astray after having been guided except for indulging in disputation.” (al-Tirmidhi)

7. “Do not dispute with your brother, ridicule him, nor promise him and then break your promise.” (al-Tirmidhi)

8. Bilal ibn Sa’d radiAllahu `anhu (ra) said, “If you see a disputing, arrogant, and bigoted person, bear in mind that they are utterly lost.”

9. Luqman `alayhi assalam (as) said to his son, “O son! Do not dispute with the knowledgeable lest they detest you.”

10. `Umar (ra) said, “Do not learn knowledge for three things and do not leave it for three things. Do not learn it to dispute over it, to show off with it, or to boast about it. Do not leave seeking it out of shyness, dislike for it, or contending with ignorance in its stead.”

11. It was narrated that Abu Hanifa said to Dawud al-Taa’i, “Why do you prefer seclusion?” Dawud replied, “To struggle against myself to leave disputing.” Abu Hanifah said, “Attend meetings, listen to what is said, and remain silent.” Dawud said, “I have done so, but I have found nothing heavier than this.”

12. `A’ishah (ra) narrated that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “The most hated person with Allah is the most quarrelsome person.” (al-Bukhari)

13. Ibn Qutaybah said that his disputant said to him, “What is the matter with you?” He replied to him, “I will not dispute with you.” The disputant then said, “Thus you have come to know that I am right.” Ibn Qutaybah responded, “No, but I respect myself more than that.” At this the disputant retracted and said, “And I will not claim a thing that is not my right.”

14. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “The one initiating abuse incurs the sin of abusing as long as the other did not return it.” (Muslim)

17. “Do not invoke Allah’s curse, His anger, or Hellfire.” (al-Tirmidhi who declared it hasan sahih)

18. “Men accustomed to cursing will not be intercessors or witnesses on the Day of Resurrection.” (Muslim)

19. Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (ra) narrated, “I asked the Messenger of Allah ﷺ about what saves me from Allah’s wrath, and he said, “Do not become angry.” (al-Tabarani and Ibn Abdul Barr) Ibn `Umar, Ibn Mas’ud, and Abu Darda’ (ra) relate similar conversations on their own behalf.

20. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “He who is victorious over his passion at the time of anger is the strongest among you. He who forgives having the power to release (his anger and take revenge) is the most patient among you.” (a-Baihaqi in Shu’ab al-Imaan)

21. Abu Hurairah (ra) narrated, “The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, ‘The strong person is not he who has physical strength but the person is strong if he can control his anger.” (al-Bukhari and Muslim)

22. `Umar ibn Abdul Aziz wrote to one of his governors and said, “Do not punish at the time of anger. If you are angry with any man, keep him in detention. When your anger is appeased punish him in proportion to his crime.”

23. ‘Ali ibn Zaid mentioned, “A man of the Quraysh spoke harshly to the Caliph `Umar Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz who remained silent for a long time and then said, “You wish that the devil rouses in me the pride of the Caliphate and I treat you so rudely that you can take revenge tomorrow (in the Afterlife) on me.”

24. Ibn ‘Abbas (ra) narrated, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “And when you get angry, keep silent.” (Ahmad, Ibn Abi Dunya, al-Tabarani, and al-Bayhaqi)

25. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Anger is a burning coal. It burns in the heart.” (al-Tirmidhi and al-Bayhaqi)

26. “When anyone of you gets angry, let him perform ablution because anger arises from fire.” (Abu Dawud)

27. “Nobody swallows a more bitter pill than that of anger—seeking the satisfaction of Allah.” (Ibn Majah)

28. `Umar (ra) said, “He who fears Allah cannot give an outlet to his anger (by sinning). He who fears Allah cannot do what he likes.”

29. A nomad said to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ “Advise me.” And he ﷺ said, “If a man defamed you with what he knows about you, do not defame him with what you know about him. For the sin is against him.” The nomad said, “I never abused any person after that.”

30. Al-Hasan (ra) said, “He that did not safeguard his tongue did not understand his religion.”

You thought it was over didn’t you? Here is a little something extra to encourage us not only to avoid such negative traits, but to also proactively seek positive ones in their place.

10 Reasons to Strive for Generosity of Spirit and Kindness in Speech

1. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Kind speech and feeding (the hungry) guarantee you Paradise.” (al-Tabarani)

2. “And speak nicely to people.” (Qur’an, 2:83)

3. “When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally.” (Qur’an, 4:86) Ibn Abbas commented on this and said, “He who greets you return his greeting in better words even if he were a Magian.1 He also said, “If Pharoah were to speak nicely to me, I would do so to him.”

4. Anas (ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Verily there are chambers in Paradise; their insides and outsides can be seen – for him who spoke kindly and fed (the hungry).” (al-Tirmidhi)

5. He ﷺ also said, “A good word is also a charitable deed.” (Muslim)

6. “Ward off the Fire even if by giving half a date in charity. If you could not afford that then utter a kind word.” (al-Bukhari and Muslim)

7. `Umar (ra) said, “Generosity is an easy thing. It is a smiling face and kind words.”

8. Some wise men said, “Do not be stingy with a word that does not arouse your Lord’s wrath yet it pleases your brother. It may happen that Allah gives you the reward of those who do good works.”

9. “And let not those among you who are blessed with graces and wealth swear not to give to their kinsmen, the poor, and those who left their homes for Allah’s cause. Let them pardon and forgive. Do you not wish that Allah should forgive you?” (Qur’an, 24:22). Abu Bakr (ra) had cut off his financial support of his relative Mustah because Mustah had participated in the slander against his daughter `A’ishah (ra). After this verse was revealed, he resumed and even increased the amount he gave Mustah in financial support.

10. “Show forgiveness, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the foolish.” (Qur’an, 7:199)

Qur’an 9: 29 ; Qur’an 8: 39 ; Noble Qur’an 2: 190
And few questions..
1. There are several terrorists in world, but please give example of organized terrorist groups made by non Muslim RELEGEOUSE groups.
2. Why a non Muslim in a Muslim country doesn’t have rights as per a Muslim
3. How many direct descendents of Prophet Muhammad (like Abu bakr) are preachers and not warlords??

5. Last but not the least: How many other religious sites will indicate hatred and negativity targeting other religions the way this site is doing??

“And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with ‘Salamaa’ (peaceful words of gentleness).” (Qur’an, 25:63)


I’m sorry for my lack of knowledge- i’m answering only two questions of you 1&5.
1. There are so many non muslim terrorist groups but nobody calls them by their religion. And there is a misconception that all the groups in the arabic name are islamic.
Did anybody call Hitler and his nasi party who killed jews A Christian terrorist group? Which religion LTTE belongs to? Who killed my beloved Gandhiji? Who was Veerappan?
What i’ve to say is who ever terror the innocent people ,, punish them.. Don’t have check his religion..
5. There are so many sites in muslim names,. if u read further u can realise they are anti-islamic…

If write more I’m sure u will call me a TERRORIST…
Pls take this in the spirit of friendship & understanding.
May God’s peace & guidance be up on you..


Aman the beauty of those text quoted by you is in the context of those text. Please read them in to get complete picture, picking & choosing one Aayat out of context & proclaiming it to be Incitement for War or killing is betrayal of literature.

Assignation of Father of Nation is considered as an act of Terrorism, RSS killing Gandhi to build Hindu Nation. That act alone proves that there are other religious group who perpetrate terrorism in name of religion. (Not listing the recent bombing done by RSS or its partners)

Non-muslim have similar right as muslim under a Islamic government but I agree there have been few bad example set in this world but for every bad example of set by a Muslims I’ll show you more than 3 by Non-muslims.

Every Muslim is a preacher as long as the word(Quran)is acceptable to other(muslims or Non-muslims) & there is no oppression of weaker section of society (muslims or Non-muslims).

Banu Qurayza tribe:
• The prophet Muhammad was in a treaty with the Qurayza tribe
• The Qurayza tribe broke the treaty
• Once they broke the treaty they were liable for a punishment
• The Qurayza are not innocent
• The prophet Muhammad made Sa’d the leader who would pronounce judgement over the Quryaza tribe
• The prophet did this at the request of the Al-Aus tribe, an ally of Qurayza
• Sa’d a former Jew judged the Banu Qurayza by their own Torah, from Deuteronomy 20

So when you put all of this together, we see that no crime was committed, and that the Qurayza tribe are far from innocent, and that the prophet Muhammad didn’t kill them just for the sake of being Jewish, or because he was supposedly evil.

Millions of other religious sites are there which spread hatred against Islam. I am sure you know them better then me or any other Muslim.



We are living at an age of information. How about using google to find your answer rather than writing a comment on a website.

In order to gain a proper understanding of many verses in the Holy Quran, it is important to understand and know the historic context of the revelations. So many revelations in the Holy Quran came down to provide guidance to Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) and the fellow Muslims based on what they were confronting at that time. Verses 8:12, 9:29, 8:39 and 2:190 are such verses. Referring specific group of people in the lifetime of prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Just google it and find out. It is not that hard. Now to your questions.

1) here’s a list of Non-Muslims Dictators and numbers of lives they are responsible for.
Joseph Stalin – 42,672,000
Mao Zedong – 37,828,000
Adolf Hitler – 20,946,000
Chiang Kai-shek – 10,214,000
Vladimir Lenin – 4,017,000
Hideki Tojo – 3,990,000
Pol Pot – 2,397,000

Not to mention Timothy McVay, Anders Behring Breivik.

An FBI report shows that only a small percentage of terrorist attacks carried out on U.S. soil between 1980 and 2005 were perpetrated by Muslims.

2) At a time when European kingdoms executed people for not being Christians, non-Muslims in the Islamic world were able to practice their faith freely, work and trade like a normal citizen. They paid a higher tax, but also were exempt from joining the military. The non-Muslims were integral part of society. Compare that to minorities who had didn’t have the right to exist in other parts of the world.

3) Abu Bakr is not a descendant of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). You just proved how little you know about Islamic history.

This is it from me. Trying using google for the rest of your questions.


Brother Aman, you wrote you heard negative things. Why don’t you read the quran fully and find out what islam is really about. You have Dr Zakir Naik in india who can answer your questions.
