Is Islam a Terrorist Religion?

Is Islam a Terrorist Religion?
Not in the least. Islam strictly condemns the use of violence against innocent lives. There is no justification in Islam for terrorism. Targeting the lives of innocent civilians and their property through suicide bombings or any other means of attack is haram (impermissible), and those who commit these acts are criminals, not martyrs. The Qur’an states in this regard: "Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed ...
