NO COMPULSION IN ISLAM AND THERE IS NO CONTRADICTION ABOUT THAT AS NON MUSLIMS THINK!
GUIDANCE:HOW TO FOLLOW ISLAM ACCORDING TO QUR’AN AND HADITH, THIS IS FOR EVERYONE OF US, SPECIFICALLY THIS IS FOR NON MUSLIMS, THOSE WHO THINK THE QUR’AN CAN BE INTERPRETED ON HOW THEY WOULD WANT
It would be better for them to read the whole of Qur’an, as some verses of the Qur’an explain one another and hadith also some of them explain one another, rather than reading one verse and then trying to prove their point and also learn the Qur’an based on how prophet Muhammad (PBUH) explained before everyone else.
Often they take random statement, random numbers and random Muslims names and link it to Qur’an, hadith or seera…
We Muslims notice this kind of false information about Islam.
We Muslims rely on Islamic teaching before Arabic language as sometimes what it means in Islam, may have different meaning in Arabic language, e.g. “HAJJ” means “PURPOSE” INTENTION” BUT IN ISLAM IT MEANS “HAJJ PILGRIMAGE” VISTING THE THE KAABA/MAKKAH PERFORMING HAJJ, THE DEEDS OF HAJJ.
Sometimes if you translate Arabic into another language, the translation may not be accurate, in this case we may rely on Arabic language rather than translation.
PROPHET MUHAMMAD IS THE TEACHER OF ISLAM SINCE HE WAS SENT BY ALMIGHTY ALLAH 👇👇👇
16:44. With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad ) the reminder and the advice (the Qur’an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought.
62:2. He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad ) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism), and teaching them the Book (this Qur’an, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah(As-Sunnah hadith: legal ways, orders, acts of worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad ). And verily, they had been before in a clear error.
After him (prophet Muhammad PBUH) is how prophet’s companions explained and understood about Islam, specifically the four leaders, as prophet told us to follow their path after him.
Chapter: Adherence To The Sunnah
Narrated Irbad ibn Sariyah:
AbdurRahman ibn Amr as-Sulami and Hujr ibn Hujr said: We came to Irbad ibn Sariyah who was among those about whom the following verse was revealed: “Nor (is there blame) on those who come to thee to be provided with mounts, and when thou saidst: “I can find no mounts for you.”
We greeted him and said: We have come to see you to give healing and obtain benefit from you.
Al-Irbad said: One day the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) led us in prayer, then faced us and gave us a lengthy exhortation at which the eyes shed tears and the hearts were afraid.
A man said: Messenger of Allah! It seems as if it were a farewell exhortation, so what injunction do you give us?
He then said: I enjoin you to fear Allah, and to hear and obey even if it be an Abyssinian slave, for those of you who live after me will see great disagreement. You must then follow my sunnah and that of the rightly-guided caliphs. Hold to it and stick fast to it. Avoid novelties, for every novelty is an innovation, and every innovation is an error.

Then general agreement (consensus) as Muslims agree, specifically Muslims scholars
4:115. And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad ) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers’ way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell – what an evil destination.
According to all those evidence I have mentioned recent, it’s enough proof for everyone of us, that there is no need of any explanation from non Muslims about Islam based on their opinion as ALLAH had clearly refuted them (non Muslims) to explain about Islam generally!
NOTE: some non Muslims may rely on a Muslim scholar and that scholar may try his best but he might not be on the right way, he can make mistakes as we all humans make mistakes, this does not indicate it would support non Muslims claim, as many other scholars might be against of his claim. The scholar that they trying to claim that would support their claim might tell us what others say, but he has no any proof of his claim.
ALLAH clearly directed us to go back to him and his prophet
4:59. O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad ), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.
Some non Muslims might claim ALLAH and his prophet are equal because ALLAH always say if you obey him (prophet Muhammad (PBUH) indeed you have obeyed ALLAH. But they are not equal, as prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is his his messenger
Here is the reason why ALLAH said; “if we obey prophet Muhammad (PBUH) indeed obey ALLAH
Qur’an 53:2. Your companion (Muhammad ) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
3. Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
4. It is only an Inspiration that is inspired.
There is no chance for anyone of us to explain about Islam as long we are against Allah’s teaching and his prophet and then how his companions understood about Islam and also Muslims scholars if they agree on something (general agreement/ consensus)
HERE IS THE REASON MAKE THEM THINK THAT THERE IS CONTRADICTION ABOUT IT👇👇👇
109:1. Say (O Muhammad () to these Mushrikun and Kafirun): “O Al-Kafirun (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His Angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadar, etc.)!
2. “I worship not that which you worship,
3. “Nor will you worship that which I worship.
4. “And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping.
5. “Nor will you worship that which I worship.
6. “To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism).”
9:5. Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2;191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
This chapter was a response to some of the nobles among the Qurayshi idolaters that suggested to the Prophet (pbuh) as a compromise that he should worship their gods for a year and they will worship his God for a year in return. In addition, they wanted him to stop criticizing their gods and calling them false. So Allah responded to them by sending down this chapter of the Qur’an to His final prophet. Ibn Abbas, a companion of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), said that the following verses were also revealed in addition to this chapter in response to the Quraysh’s request:
“Say, [O Muhammad], “Is it other than Allah that you order me to worship, O ignorant ones?” And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah, your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers.” Rather, worship [only] Allah and be among the grateful.” [Qur’an 39:64-66].
These verses 9:5 and 2:109 where ALLAH said kill them wherever you find them and turn them out where ever they turned you out, HE (ALLAH) said the reason to do this and is to take revenge as them started the problem as they have turned out prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his companions and wanted to assassinate prophet Muhammad (PBUH), they (disbeliebers) did bad to Muslims at that time.
9:12. But if they violate their oaths after their covenant, and attack your religion with disapproval and criticism then fight (you) the leaders of disbelief (chiefs of Quraish – pagans of Makkah) – for surely their oaths are nothing to them – so that they may stop (evil actions).
9:13. Will you not fight a people who have violated their oaths (pagans of Makkah) and intended to expel the Messenger, while they did attack you first? Do you fear them? Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are believers.
9:14. Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people,
9:15. And remove the anger of their (believers’) hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
NON MUSLIMS PLOTTED TO ASSASSINATE PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)
830. And (remember) when the disbelievers plotted against you (O Muhammad ) to imprison you, or to kill you, or to get you out (from your home, i.e. Makkah); they were plotting and Allah too was planning, and Allah is the Best of the planners.
Note: if non Muslims say that ALLAH decieved them so did the God of the bible not a deciever and not decieved his own people in Jeremiah 4:10?
ALLAH decieved non Muslims, not Muslims and there is no where in the Qur’an says that HE (ALLAH) decieved us Muslims!
Usually if people attack us first, definitely we would defend ourselves, our country, our family, our wealth and everyhing else that belongs to us and this is normal, we call it self-defence!
HERE IS THE PROVE THAT ISLAM IS PEACE AND IT GIVES PEACE TO EVERY ONE OF US AS LONG WE GIVE PEACE ITSELF AND ITS PEOPLE
60:8. Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allah loves those who deal with equity.
If the case is to kill all non Muslims as non Muslims think then prophet Muhammad (PBUH) could be the first person to kill all non Muslims as he had a “Jew”neighbour and never killed him or misbehaved towards him, but he was kind to him as this Jew man used to respect and give peace to prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
WHAT PROPHET MUHAMMAD SAID ABOUT NEIGHBOURS AND HOW THE COMPANIONS USED TO TREAT THEIR NEIGHBOURS EVEN IF THEY ARE NON MUSLIMS👇👇👇
Chapter 57: Begin with the neighbour
Mujahid reported that a sheep was slaughtered for ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr. He asked his slave, ‘Have you given any to our Jewish neighbour? Have you given any to our Jewish neighbour? I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, ‘ angel Jibril kept on recommending that I treat my neighbours well until I thought that he would order me to treat them as my heirs.'”
Reference : Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 105 In-book reference : Book 6, Hadith 5 English translation : Book 6, Hadith 105.
If non Muslims incline to peace even during the battle we are asked by ALLAH to give them peace and not fight with them👇👇👇
8:61. But if they incline to peace, you also incline to it, and (put your) trust in Allah. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.
Islam is not what you hear from social media or what you hear from other people, but according to Qur’an and the explanation of prophet Muhammad (PBUH)!
●Some Qur’an verses explain one another and prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the teacher of the Qur’an before everyone else (Qur’an 16:44)
Kill them whereever you find them and drive them where they drove you out (Qur’an 2:191).In this verse, ALLAH is talking about the people that drove out prophet and his companions from “Makkah” started the problems and killed some Muslims (Qur’an 9:13).
Non Muslims always read out of context about this verse and other verses similar to this verse
There is no compilation in Islam (2:256). Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allah loves those who deal with equity. (Qur’an 60:8)
Even during the battle, if non Muslims incline for peace, we have to incline to it (Qur’an 8:61)
●Non Muslims read out of context about this verse of Qur’an 109:6), where ALLAH said; “you shall have your religion and I shall have my religion”
●ALLAH revealed this chapter 109, quraish (idol worshipers), wanted prophet to worship their gods, and this is the only thing they wanted from prophet as ALLAH explained from the beginning of the chapter until to the end, but non Muslims read only the last verse of it!
The truth has come (arrived) and falsehood has vanished, indeed falsehood is a vanish thing!
