VERY DIFFICULT TIME

In the name of God (Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala), the Most Compassionate, and the Most Merciful. Assallamu'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, that is equivalent in English, "greetings of peace". We are going through some very difficult time, when west relations with moslems have polarized.
Continously devastating condition of Palestinians, who have tyrant and unjust authoritizing by Israel. USA invations on Afghanistan (2002) and Iraq (2003), had destruction and killings of several hundred thousand people of Afghanistan and Iraq. Evil treatment of prisoners by USA military (Abu Ghraib in Iraq, and Guantanamo in Cuba region) are some of the major factors which have turned our world into a lawless, and unjust global village.
I hope we will be a step to undo the stereotypes, and help inspire a constructive and sincere interaction.
Moslems have a Holy Book called, "The Holy Qur'an". For moslems, The Holy Qur'an is the words of God. The Holy Qur'an consist of 114 chapters of varying length. Each chapter is made up of single or multiple revelations. Chapter names are based on a word that appears in the chapter itself. The interpretation of the verses, must be use historic context, events that moslems were facing at that time, and the Sunnah matter.
Sunnah refers to the sayings, approvals, and disapprovals of the Prophet Muhammad. These are compiled in separate books, known as Hadith Books. Unlike The Holy Qur'an which was compiled by Prophet Muhammad himself, the Hadith Books were compiled after the death of the Prophet Muhammad.
The first and the foremost basic right, is the right to live and respect human life. The Holy Qur'an lays down: First, "Whoseover kills a human being without (any reason like) man slaughter, or corruption on earth, it is as though he had killed mankind..." (5:32). Second, "Do not kill a soul which Allah has made sacred, except through the due process of law..." (6:151). Third, "Do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression ..." (5:2). Fourth, "And do not let ill will towards any folk incite you, so that you swerve from dealing justly. Be just, that is nearest to heedfulness" (5:8).
