Is Islam A Dangerous Religion?

Is Islam A Dangerous Religion?


There is violence in the Muslim world, ISIS
and Al Qaeda are proof of that, but the media often conflates that to imply that Islam is violent.
For example, on his show a while back Bill Maher implied that all Muslims hold “pernicious”
beliefs. That was his word: “pernicious”. Which means “having a harmful effect”. Ben Affleck, who agreed to be on the show
for some reason, said that Maher’s statement was “gross” and “racist.” Because he thought
Maher was implying that Muslims have a harmful effect. That they are dangerous or evil. And
he knows that there are over 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and that generalizing about a large
group of people is “racist and gross.” Which it is. But Maher, who WAS implying most of that,
didn’t back down from his argument because there IS violence and evil in the Muslim world,
and he DOES believe that organized religion is pernicious. He made a documentary about it.
He also believes that Islam is more pernicious than other religions. He argues somewhat reasonably
that the Koran does say some very outdated and potentially dangerous things
about how people should be treated. Teachings that are proven to have a harmful effect when
interpreted by ISIS or Al Qaeda, who are Islamic groups that, Maher would argue, share a lot
of the same beliefs as everyday regular Muslims. Therefore, all Muslims have a lot of the same
beliefs as ISIS. Which is true….and terribly misleading.
Muslims and ISIS both teach from the same Koran, but to get some actual perspective on what that
says about Islam, we should bring in the ideas of a real life expert on religion, Reza Aslan.
He argues that both Ben Affleck and Maher are wrong. …Sort of. Aslan argues that Muslims who distance themselves
from the extremist elements of the Muslim Community by claiming that those extremists
are not “real Muslims” are denying that religious violence has a religious motive. And it obviously
does. So, Maher is right: Islam is a part of this. But Maher is also wrong because, and I quote,
“Islam doesn’t promote violence or peace. Islam is just a religion. And like every religion
in the world, it depends on what you bring to it.” End quote. So, if you find yourself talking about the
pernicious effects of Islam, you should really be talking about the pernicious effects of
ISIS or Al Qaeda. Not Islam itself. Because Muslims are a group of people largely defined
by their following Islam, but they are also many different groups and cultures. Saudi
Arabian Muslims are different than Turkish Muslims and Turkish Muslims are different
than Indonesian Muslims and they’re all different than Militant Jihadist Muslims.
So, let’s not talk about Muslims in general terms; let’s talk about them individually by the
name of their exact group. ISIS oppresses women. Turkey, in 1993, elected a woman as
their prime minister. That sort of thing. If you found this video informative please

  1. Catholic church has a bad reputation in murdering and enslaving people….don't understand why say one is dangerous and the other not….don't understand why so many killings in the name of religion

  2. There's not even a word like weapon or Sowrd written in Holy Quran.. Study and research before defaming 1.6 Billions. Stop being a stupid or a raciest

  3. Lies lies lies. Just open your eyes to Islam today and how it got to today, and you will know Jesus is the only truth.

  4. What a load of cr*p! Political correctness is killing any attempt to sort this issue. You now the easiest thing to say is that both opinion are wrong and the truth is on the middle?! No Islam is not just a religion it is one of the most indoctrinated religions in in modern history. If there was no prayer and beliefs in the super natural it would become another ideology like Fascism or Communism. And no there are religions across the human history that promoted only peace and had minimal acts of violence! Do you compare such religions with ones that order you to fight for God and wage wars again entire cultures, and civilizations (Ex Islam and Christianity..etc). The simple truth is that among the Abrahamic religions Islam is the only one yet to be reformed. The future of Islam is the same as the status of Christianity today.

  5. I am a Muslim. I know I don’t always follow the Islam rules but I do stand up for my religion

  6. Is Islam a dangerous religion? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 no you idiots! CIA = ISIS 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  7. Hey you there not bad i think you are imnot muslim im catholic but we should respect other religions god made us to learn kind helping and more

  8. Islam is inherently evil and Turkey only elected a woman because the country's elites forcefully secularized the government.
    Christianity is a religion of faith, Judaism and Islam are a religion of laws. Islam is inherently incompatible with rational, Western, enlightenment values. The only thing that made Judaism acceptable is they don't believe in converting others to their religion.

  9. Since everyone on comment section acting like they are expert and scholars on religions or islam, i'm gonna said this. "Even brilliant guy like Bill Maher or Reza Aslan still make mistakes like having the problem of Induction". Well because, we all only like and aim to be rational that we forgot we're emotional beings naturally.

  10. 😂😂👌Sabse bade pegamber ka darja modi ji ko do qki onhone gujrat me musalmano ka sarvnash kiya tha😁😁

  11. Ok so, the people of this religion are ruining its peace and the country where i live is peaceful. I dont see anything wrong with it. Its an Islamic country. If you see the olden days in Islam nothing was like that like killing people and stuff. Allah sent the prophets to make the people understand about the religion but some did not listen to the prophets but the prophets never harmed them rather they explained them wht is right. So the people today are the one's ruining the peace of Islam not the religion.

  12. Wait so u wanna bring this up here we go again, it’s not the religion it’s the politics. They are using Islam like a shield.

  13. Islam have own world.. America and western country interrupt in middle East for Oil . Hitler killed lakhs of people but no one call him terrorist. America destroy Japan using by nuclear. So how he's fight against terror ? Thousand of children died in Afghanistan, Syria, Gaza every day but whole world calling muslims are terrorist ! We are not terrorist we tried to protect our Land and family !

  14. The video is too short and doesn't go into deep. If you want to understand a subject as complex as Islam, you need to make at least a few hours long clip.

  15. Yes, Islam is dangerous. It makes the mind, and heart dark for those who get in too deep.
    I want to hear about Hinduism and Buddhism, two of the oldest religions in the world. Yes, sometimes, religions in the past have proven to take a bad turn, but none worse than Islam. Islam as destroyed the most families by far, and many don’t want to stop. these are God’s families, created by God, and given their religions by God. For some reason, Muslim think someone want to hear about Islam. Nobody in their right mind wants to hear about Islam. Why don’t you tell me more about God. That’s what I want to hear about. That is what we should all want to hear about, not about Islam. STOP IT with the Islam talk. Who cares about Islam. Talk about God.

    And, don’t say God told you to do something horrible to God’s children. It’s a lie, and we are tired of it. Find peace. Let’s talk about how much God loves us all.

  16. Islam is evil. Most Muslims believe in either homophobia, sexism, punishment for apostates (people who leave in Islam), who are raped. I could go on and on and on, but there are just a few things.

  17. The proverb for this video:
    1.The pen is mightier than the sword
    Meaning:Words is strong than violence and war.

  18. Stay secular to islam and a few decades later it won't leave you in a condition to stay or not stay secular by your choice.

  19. Just look at the talibans ,Pakistanis,bangladeshi radical muslims , afghanistan, seria, iraq,iran, Somalia, the cancer is everywhere

  20. Im a Turkish non-muslim woman. Thank you for letting the world know Tansu Çiller she is a huge inspiration for me 🙂

  21. Islam isnt a person muslims are people that follow islam written by followers of a 54 year old man that sexually abused and raped a 9 year old child. All abrahamic religions are religions of violence and thats a fact, Dummy that made this video.

  22. ISIS isnt Islamic lmaooooo and I'm not denying it like every muslim in saudi where I live disapproves with ISIS and their terrorist regime. Idiots cannot possibly represent a religion as truly peaceful as islam.

  23. Yes the muslims are different within their community but they are all following the same book right? And what is with the brotherhood of Muslims even in different countries they would start to protest against their own government if one imam/maula/da'i starts to put a fatwa or something. Didn't something similar happened with Salman Rushdie?.
    Disregarding the laws of the land and started self imposed Sharia police in London, that is not peaceful and very frankly scary. Even if you take 10% of Muslims in any country you are talking about 1.8m people who certainly would love to have sharia laws imposed .IF a pastor preaches bible does he start insulting Islam or other religions too? Or any other preachers other than Islamic ones.Islam preachers dont start by the belief of spreading Islam through quran , they believe to spread it through insulting and discrediting others beliefs. Its okay for them to criticize other books but they cannot take criticism of Quran , that much was very apparent With " Satanic verses " .
    The want mosques in all the countries of the world but god forbid you can build a church or a temple or even open pray or preach your religion in an Islamic country…
    See i might be wrong in my perspective but all this is from the news/some basic facts in quran/ ex Muslims/ even practicing Muslims ,So i am sorry if i have understood it wrong. And if i am please do let me know which part i didn't understand

  24. If the Quran promoted violence don’t you think that everyone would’ve been at war with Muslims long ago and not only in the past decade when the media shows Muslims as violent

  25. It's not true
    Islam doesn't promote to any violence or any type of profanity which effects to any type of living organisms
    But some groups of people has made a bad persona of us which is exactly contrary to the Islam

  26. Plz stop being fools and racist our religion is not violent at all allah doesn't say kill people steal money and drink alcohal

    So go fck yourself lmao

    You are the racits not us

  27. I am an Arab and Muslim advice for every person visiting Bladen if he spoke about Muslims badly in Muslim countries in our country there is no freedom we send your head to your country only

  28. Im muslim not a really muslim but i like when someone called me dangerous its make me feel very strong 😊😊😊😊

  29. Why peoples still don't understand that islam is just a clicking time bomb ….waiting to explode ….!!!they care for nothing except their religion…. !!!and hate those who dont follow it ….!!!
    Its what their holybook teaches them….!!!

  30. Ayatollah quotes Qur’an 9:111 on Feb 5 2018
    The following is the full text of a speech delivered on February 5, 2018, by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, in a meeting with the officials in charge of commemorating Ayatollah Muhammad Sadiq Saduq and the 372 martyrs of Golpayegan.

    In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful,
     
    As the gentlemen in the meeting pointed out, the city and area of Golpayegan is an area which cultivates many scholars. In the past 150 years, great scholars have emerged from this city. In the present time, too, there are some great scholars from Golpayegan in Islamic seminaries. However, the color and quality of martyrdom is something beyond these things.
     
    Thankfully, as the gentlemen pointed out, the city of Golpayegan has had outstanding martyrs, including the late Shahid Saduq. I have not met him, personally, but the characteristics that you've mentioned are outstanding characteristics: first, the characteristic of serving the people, second the characteristic of facing and confronting the Taghuti [tyrannical] apparatus, and most importantly, the characteristic of martyrdom on the path to God. He lost his life on this path and he was martyred: this is a valuable and magnificent deed. I hope that God will raise his position and associate him with his saints, with the martyrs of the early Islamic era and with the martyrs of Karbala (blessing be upon them).
     
    Other men who were martyred in the arena of fighting against the enemy –whether during the Sacred Defense Era or in other areas – all enjoy the lofty position of martyrdom. On the issue of martyrdom, what is important is that one becomes ready to sacrifice his life on the path to God. All our self-sacrificing soldiers who were prepared to lay down their lives enjoyed this virtue, but sometimes, Allah the Exalted particularly favors some individuals by rewarding them– with martyrdom – in cash." So, the value of such individuals increases several times because they receive the rewards of such jihad in cash: "Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods. For theirs in return is the garden of Paradise. They fight for His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an… [The Holy Quran, 9: 111]." In other words, Allah the Exalted accepted the commodity of martyrs – their lives and their persons – and has rewarded them directly with Paradise in exchange. –This is the best deal and the best profit.
     
    Our life is a resource which will be lost, in any case, whether we want it or not. There is no person who can preserve this life which is their most valuable resource. It exists for a while, and then it will be taken from us. This outcome happens in various ways: a person gets into an accident, for example, in the desert or on the streets, and they die like so. Another person dies of some disease, but another person bargains with God. They trade this perishable life with God. Before the Revolution, I used to frequently add that martyrdom is a merchant-style of death. It is a calculated death. A person who is martyred on the path of God is actually making the best kind of calculation. –This is because our life is not something eternal.
     
    According to a common saying in Farsi, "Spilt oil should be donated to an Imamzadeh [an Imam's child] as an offering." Well, our lives are like spilled oil because they cannot be preserved. If one offers this to an Imamzadeh (as), this is a valuable and clever act. Our martyrs had the intelligence to trade this perishable life with Allah the Exalted. Allah the Exalted speaks to them in this tone: "Allah has purchased of the believers their persons." Dear God, who are we that you want to purchase our lives? This life belongs to you: it is yours, and we have no power over it.
     
    Notice that Allah the Exalted places a very high value on mujahids who struggle on the path of God: "…Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods. For theirs in return is the garden of Paradise. They fight in His cause, and slay and are slain [The Holy Quran, 9: 111]." –This is what sacrifice is. Allah the Exalted has chosen this path for our martyrs: we should attach great value to this.
     
    You, who are defending, supporting, respecting and venerating this dear clergy-martyr – Shahid Saduq – and the other martyrs of your city should know that this is an exceptional task. I hope that Allah the Exalted will reward you, God willing. I hope that, like its past, the future of Golpayegan will be imbued with knowledge, spirituality, and self-sacrifice.

  31. Qur’an 5:51—O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other.

    Qur’an 9:73—O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them.

    Qur’an 9:111—Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain.

    Qur’an 9:123—O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.

    Qur’an 47:35—Be not weary and fainthearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost.

    Qur’an 48:29—Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are ruthless against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.

  32. I wanna sit down with all Islam phobics and teach them THE CONTEXT of the Quran not only a SMALL part, read the whole chapter before u judge

  33. Island is an Arabic word
    Meaning of Islam: light, peaceful, kindness, clean

    Rules:
    -no killing
    -cannot commit suicide
    -no drinking
    -not taking drugs
    -be kind at all times
    -be 100% honest
    -love even the hate

    Breaking any of these rules will automatically send you out of the Islamic culture. There all you needed to know

    Edit: I liked my own comment so I’m not a 0gal

  34. Christianity also preaches pernicious dogma…and tortured millions of native people because they were not Christian…with a little paper known as the doctrine of discovery….it states that anyone who is not a Christian was to be enslaved… And Christianity was to prevail against all savage nation's.. their lands and wealth were to be confiscated…this document is uesed to this very day to keep all native people suppressed

  35. It doesn't matter how you tried to paint and polish islam it will stay the cult of Muhammad whos whole so called prophethood live was a murderous trail of bloodshedding untill today.
    Quran is a false scrable book of Muhammad and his advisors.

  36. Plz do not say such bad things about religions my religion is islam that does not mean i am going to be mean to other religions Muslim respect everyones faith therefore you should too

  37. It's really sad the fact that people are calling Muslims terrorists when the islamic terrorists are killing these innocent Muslims in their own country. Also the islamic terrorist make less than 0.01% of the whole Muslim population and 2% of the world terrorists, but I guess the media makes more money when islamic terrorists are put more than other terrorist, as more people seem to be finding Islam interesting. But regardless looking at the interpretation of the Islamic scholars and from the Hadith for each verse of the Al Quran, I never seen a thing about killing innocents or apostles. Also from non-muslim historians, Islam killed the least amount of apostles compared to christianity and Judaism, and that was from the bad rulers, and again just because some says they are Muslim, doesn't mean they follow Islam, like was Hitler following Christianity?

  38. Indonesian Muslims and Turkish are different but sooner or later Islam will consume them… U r just a foolish person living comfortable life…

  39. "islam doesn't promote violence or peace Islam is just a religion….."??!!!? In order to claim to be expert in something… anything you shouldn't be brain dead in the first place.
