Which religion is moderate and which is extreme? Who are the radicals? Judaism vs. Christianity vs. Islam vs. atheism

68:35 Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals? 68:36 What is with you? How do you judge?

(“Muslim” is an Arabic word meaning “one who submits (to God)”. According to verses 68:35-36, Muslims are never criminals, because they obey God, and what God orders is good. By definition, if someone was to disobey God, he would no longer be a Muslim, so “Submitting to God” (aka being a Muslim) opposes being a criminal or sinner. On the other hand, if an atheist, Jew, or Christian is a murder, rapist or terrorist, etc., he still would be considered an atheist, Jew or Christian, because an atheist still does not believe in God, a Jew still have a Jewish mother (which makes him a Jew, according to themselves), and a Christian still believes in Jesus as his savior (regardless of his works, according to themselves), so they belong to groups in which there are wrongdoers)(Muslims are not divided into extreme or moderate, there are no degrees, but there are only two kinds, the one who submit, and the one who does not submit to God. On the other hand, non-Muslims can be divided into extreme and moderate)(Allah knows best)

2:177 It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the east and the west but righteous is he who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets and gives wealth in spite of love for it to the near relatives, the orphans, the needy, the wayfarer, and those who ask, and in freeing the necks (slaves); and who establish prayer and give zakah and those who fulfill their covenant when they make it; and those who are patient in suffering, hardship, and periods of stress. Those are the ones who are true and it is those who are the righteous.

(Islam does not encourage slavery or having sex slaves. See the article below “Is slavery allowed in Islam?” and “Are sex slaves allowed in Islam?”. In regard to “sex slaves” in Judaism and Christianity, according to Genesis 38:8, women must have relations with her husband’s brother, while in Islam women have no obligation or cannot be forced to have relations; women can divorce in Islam, but they cannot divorce in Christianity (Matthew 5:32). So, she could be oppressed or abused (e.g. raped) by her husband; in Deuteronomy 22:28-29, if a man rapes a girl, he must marry her forever and can never divorce. So, this could rather punish the victim, and the rapist would go unpunished; according to Numbers 31:17-18, “Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man”. This verse is in a context of slavery “save for yourselves”, and in a context of sex, because they take the virgin ones for themselves)(In Leviticus 25:44-46, “Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.”. And according to Ephesians 6:5, “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.”. And according to 1 Peter 2:18, “Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are cruel / unjust”)(So, slavery is allowed in Judaism and Christianity, while it is not in Islam)(Allah knows best)

29:8 And We have enjoined upon man goodness to his parents, but if they both strive against you to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, then do not obey both of them. To Me is your return, and I will inform you about what you used to do.

(In Judaism and Christianity, even the children could be oppressed and killed by the parents; according to Deuteronomy 21:18-20, “If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.”. Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.”)(Allah knows best)

26:22 And this (is the) favor with which you reproach me, that you have enslaved (the) Children of Israel." 26:23 Pharaoh said, "And what (is the) Lord (of) the worlds?"

5:38 And for the male thief and the female thief - cut off their hands as a recompense for what they earned as an exemplary (punishment) (nakalan) from Allah. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. 5:39 But whoever repented after his wrongdoing and reforms, then indeed, Allah will turn to him in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

(In regard to mutilation, in Islam, there is a punishment for the thieves, but if they repent and reform, Allah will turn to him in forgiveness (5:39))(The root of “nakalan” is “Nun-Kaf-Lam”, and it means “desist; prevent; any punishment serving to give warning to others than the sufferer or that restrains the offender from repeating the offense”. It can be understood as an example to avoid or a deterrence)(In regard to Judaism and Christianity, in Deuteronomy 25:11-12, the context is that woman is punished by cutting off her hand if she seizes in self-defense the private parts of someone who is not her husband)(Allah knows best)

2:222 And they ask you about menstruation. Say, "It is a hurt, so keep away (from) women during (fi) (their) menstruation. And do not approach them until they are cleansed. Then when they are purified, then come to them from where Allah has ordered you." Indeed, Allah loves those who turn in repentance and loves those who purify themselves.

(According to Verse 2:222, you have to keep away from women “in” (fi) their menstruation (blood flowing from the womb). So, men are to keep away from the “private part” of women. In regard to Judaism and Christianity, Leviticus 15:19-20 says, “when a woman has her regular flow of blood, the impurity of her monthly period will last seven days, and anyone who touches her will be unclean till evening. Anything she lies on during her period will be unclean, and anything she sits on will be unclean”)(Allah knows best)

2:190 And fight in the way of Allah those who fight you, and do not transgress. Indeed, Allah does not like the transgressors.

(In Islam, fighting is in self-defense. On the other hand, the world should be concerted that the Jewish Bible tells in 1 Samuel 15:3 about putting to death women, children, babies, cattle, etc; and in Ezekiel 9:5-6 there is killing of old men, women, mothers and children; while It is not about self-defense. As a result of their scripture, they use it as an excuse to kill and expel Palestinians from their homes. And if they were to gain dominance against Christians, they would kill Christians as well. Jews massacred Christians in the past (e.g. in AD 524 the Yemeni Jewish Himyar tribe, led by King Yusuf Dhu Nuwas, massacred more than 22,000 Christians). It was alleged that the Talmud contained slanderous references to Jesus and Mary, etc)(Allah knows best)

5:32 From that time, We ordained on the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul other than for a soul or for spreading corruption in the earth, then it is as if he has killed the whole mankind, and whoever saves it then it is as if he has saved the whole mankind. And surely Our Messengers came to them with clear Signs, yet after that, indeed, many of them surely commit excesses in the earth.

(In Islam, “one single life” is important (5:32). Many non-Muslims do little or nothing for people’s lives; for example, the pollution in cities kills millions people per year, or the nuclear power stations could kill workers or people living around, but they would not dismantle it for one or few persons, or, in United States, the gun violence results in tens of thousands of deaths annually, or smoking kills slowly to smokers and the people around smokers, etc; and historically, USA killed civilians (women and children) in Hiroshima and Nagasaki; communist regimes are atheists and killed more than 140 million people, etc. Some non-Muslims blame Islam and Muslims as the cause of their problems, while they are themselves the problem)(Allah knows best)

3:135 And those when they did immorality or wronged themselves - they remember Allah then ask forgiveness for their sins - and who can forgive the sins except Allah? And they do not persist in what they did while they know.

(In Christianity and Judaism, there is honor killing, the adulterers are “to be put to death” (Leviticus 20:10-11); and also anyone who curses their parents is to be put to death (Exodus 21:17, Leviticus 20:9); and a priest’s daughter must be burned to death if she defiles herself (Leviticus 21:9); and those who has sexual relations with an animal are to be put to death (Leviticus 20:15); “if a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads” (Leviticus 20:13); “Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men” (1 Corinthians 6:9); “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22))(There is no honor killing in Islam. In regard to homosexuals, one interpretation of Verse 4:15 is that they are not sentenced to death, so, “until death comes to them” indicates that they are confined forever, unless they repent and correct themselves in order to get a way out (4:16). In regard to adulterers or fornicators (male and female), they are not sentenced to death or stoning, but to lashes (24:2))(Allah knows best)

2:79 So woe to those who write the book with their hands, then they say, "This is from Allah," to exchange it for a little price. So woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.

(In Christianity, it was said that Jesus abolished in the New Testament the stoning “ordered” in the Old Testament, in which a woman was not stoned after being caught in adultery (John 7:53-8:11). But that story in John 7:53-8:11 is not found in the oldest Bible - It is not found in Papyrus 66 and papyrus 75 (late 100s or early 200s), nor in Codex Sinaiticus and Vaticanus (early/mid 300s), but it is found in a later manuscript for the first time: in Codex Bezae (400s or 500s) which was made in Europe (This is confirmed by the article “Jesus and the woman taken in adultery” in Wikipedia). So the story was invented by men and added to the New Testament later)(So, stoning is supported in the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 21:18-21 and Leviticus 24:16), and is implicitly supported in the New Testament, because according to Matthew 5:17, Jesus confirmed the Law: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them”, and according to James 2:14-26 “faith without works is dead”; and according to Matthew 23:2-3 “the teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.”; according to Acts 15:5 and 15:20, early Christians followed the Law)(Other verses in the sense of violence in the New Testament: according to Matthew 10:34, Jesus said “do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword”; according to Luke 22:36, Jesus said “And if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one”; according to Luke 14:26, Jesus said “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple”; according to Luke 19:27, Jesus told a violent parable “but those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me”)(Allah knows best)

4:6 And test the orphans until they reach marriage. Then if you perceive in them sound judgment, deliver their wealth to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, that they will grow up. And whoever is self-sufficient should refrain; and whoever is poor - let him consume in a fair manner. Then when you deliver their wealth to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Reckoner.

(In regard to pedophilia or child marriages, according to the Qur’an, reaching (age of) marriage” and “accessing the wealth” are related to each other in the Qur’an (4:6), so the Qur’an implicitly says that the “(age of) marriage” is in “maturity”, because “maturity” is directly related to “accessing the wealth” (6:152), and to “full strength, wisdom and knowledge” (28:14) and to getting “wisdom and knowledge” (12:22). On the other hand, getting “their wealth” (4:6) and having “sound judgment” is directly related to “reaching (age of) marriage” (4:6), so “maturity” is implicitly related to “(age of) marriage”. In addition, “maturity” is differenced from “child” in Verse 40:67. So, the Qur’an does not support pedophilia or child marriages at all)(In regard to Christian/atheist countries, according to the article in wikipedia “list of pedophile and pederast advocacy organizations”, there are pedophile organizations in Australia (2), Belgium (5), Canada (2), Denmark (1), France (1), Germany (15), Italy (1), Netherlands (4), Norway (2), Switzerland (1), United Kingdom (2), and United States (5); and also an international organization which had members in 20 countries. This organization uses English, French, German and Spanish as its languages. The list is not including groups which discuss and support the pedophile activism (e.g. “Christian boy love” group, etc.). On the other hand, such organizations are obviously forbidden in Muslim countries)(See the article below: “Does Islam support pedophilia or child marriages? Did Prophet Muhammad marry a 6 year old? Are relations with prepubertal girls allowed in Qur’an (65:4) as some non-Muslims state?”)(Allah knows best)

2:35 And We said, "O Adam, dwell you and your spouse in Paradise, and (you both) eat freely from wherever you (both) wish. But do not (you two) approach this tree, lest you (both) be of the wrongdoers." 2:36 Then Satan made (both of) them slip out of it, and he got (both of) them out from that in which they (both) were. And We said, "Go down (all of you), as enemies to one another; and on the earth, for you is a dwelling place and a provision for a period."

(Jews and Christians make a woman solely responsible for the so-called “original sin”; and they made laws and tradition against women’s rights, while the Qur’an protects women)(Some non-Muslims try to oppress/deny Muslim women’s right to wear the veil/hijab, while the veil is modesty (24:31) and protection of women (33:59), and Mary also wore it (19:16). There are no objections in the Torah on using veil/hijab (Genesis 24:65, Genesis 38:14-15). Women is obligated to wear veil/hijab in the New Testament (1 Corinthians 11:5-7))(There are no objections in the Qur’an on a woman ruling (27:23). On the other hand, in the Bible, according to 1 Timothy 2: 11-15, they are not allowed to have any authority over men)(Women are allowed to learn the Qur’an (33:34). It also implies to have knowledge in different fields (astronomy, biology, geology, etc.). So, it implies that women are allowed to receive education. On the other hand, in Judaism, the Talmud says “women are exempt from the study of the Torah”. So, the rabbis would be preventing women from salvation)(Allah knows best)

2:120 And the Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their religion. Say, "Indeed, the Guidance of Allah is the Guidance." And if you follow their desires after what has come to you of the knowledge, you will have neither any protector from Allah nor any helper.

(There is no freedom of religion in non-Muslim countries, because they try to change people’s beliefs. There is a campaign against Islam (on tv, internet, school, books, etc). They tell lies about Islam with the purpose of making Muslims leave Islam or trying to prevent people from becoming Muslims. They use the man-made concept “freedom of speech” as a cover, to tell lies about Islam, while what some non-Muslims invent about Islam should be called “defamation, falsehood,...”. On the other hand, there is freedom of religion in Islam. See the article below “Is there freedom of religion in Islam?”)(Allah knows best)

6:108 And do not insult those whom they invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made fair-seeming to every community their deed. Then to their Lord is their return, then He will inform them about what they used to do.

(Many non-Muslims make some words into pejorative meanings or terms. For example, “islamist, islamic extremist, jihadist, muhammadans, muhammadanism, etc.”, in order to attack Islam (E.g. they use the word “muhammadans” instead of “Muslim /Submitter (to God)” because “muhammadans” imply that Islam is from Muhammad, not from God). Muslims do not use pejorative meanings against non-Muslims, because there are good manners in Islam. And the worse name or title you can call someone is “non-Muslim, disbeliever, hypocrite, etc.” which is what they are)(Allah knows best)

19:16 And mention in the Book Mary, when she withdrew from her family to an eastern place. ... 19:22 So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place.

(The borders (and also countries, flags, etc.) are man-made, so mankind was deprived of their right to move freely anywhere on Earth)(Verse 3:105 says, “And do not be like those who became divided and differed after the clear proofs came to them. And they will have a great punishment.”)(Some non-Muslims discriminate against people. They prefer the ones like them or who follow their religion, while in Islam you have to treat everyone justly (4:135, 5:8, 60:8))(Some non-Muslims do not want people to enter their country for evil reasons – racism, stinginess, xenophobia, etc, while foreigners might benefit you, and your fellow citizens might harm you)(Many non-Muslims do not follow the Scripture, but they follow man-made laws which are evil and unjust)(We were created from a single soul (7:189), and we are all descendants of Adam (7:11))(Allah knows best)
