Misconceptions about Islam

Islam does not Promote War with Enemies

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Islam Today I 10 Dec. 2007

Contrary to common belief, Islam does not promote war with their enemies.

Under the scheme of the divine trial of human beings, God has granted man freedom. Due to this freedom, enmities may develop between people (20:123), which sometimes lead them to war. But Islam makes a clear difference between enmity and war.
