Misconception about islam #7

(7) Islam is a religion which is militantly anti-Western, exposes violence, and is very much inclined to wars

 The last misconception is “Islam is a religion which is military anti-Western, exposes violence and is very much inclined to wars”. It is untrue that Islam is millitary anti-western.  As mentioned before, Islam promotes peace. Allah mentioned about equality between human being in surah AL HUJURAT verse 13;

  "O mankind! We created you from a single soul, male and  female, and made you into nations and
 tribes, so that you may come to know one another.  Truly,  the most honored of you in God's
 sight is the greatest of you in piety.  God is All-Knowing, All- Aware.”
This verse clearly mentioned the equality that are promoted in Islam.

Islam dos not exposes violence and very much inclined to wars. Allah stated in the Quran in surah Al-Mumtahinah verse 8;

"God forbids you not, with regards to those who fight you not for [your] faith nor drive you out Of your
 homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them; for God loveth those who are just.”
This ayah clearly shows how Islam urge the believers to be just to others hence disallow violence. Another verse from the Quran which shows that Islam prohibited violence is on surah Al-ma’idah verse 32;
 “If anyone killed a person - unless it was for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed the whole people.”
This ayah clearly shows that Islam only allows self-defence but not to attack. Thus, this proves the whole concept of Islam being a violent religion and inclined to war is a false.
            Although there was time where war is permitted, yet Muslim need to follows the guideline and uphold the limit set by the religion. There were rules regarding one which can be killed and one which are prohibited to be killed.  As mentioned in Al-Baqarah, verse 190
“Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits. God does not love transgressors.”
