Beware of Terrorism
Anis Sulalah Ahdi
Many bomb of commit suicide was done in Indonesia since the Balies Tragedy at 2005. And now was be the famous news, bomb tragedy in JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton hotel, Mega Kuningan Jakarta at 17th of July 2009. This incident brings our awareness that terrorism still around us. We are the Indonesians feel that our country was became the dangerous one, the next terrorist country. As we have known that all bomb calamity caused by Moslem named by holy war (jihad). But it was wrong because, our religion Islam never teaches us to offend others people although they are not in one belief with us.
Islam is an Arabic word and connotes submission, surrender and obedience. As a religion, Islam stands for complete submission and obedience to Allah. Another literal meaning of the word Islam is “peace” and this signifies that one can achieve real peace of body and mind only through submission and obedience to Allah. Such a life of obedience brings with it peace of the heart and establishes real peace in society at large.
Islam is the tranquility religion, in the emergence history of it, Prophet Muhammad delivered the doctrines to the community without force to accept it. In fact, Moslem society can life contiguously with others religion (non Moslem)
Peacefulness is the point message from prophet Muhammad. Peacefulness is the noble destination that always hard fought by all people in this earth. It can imagine If in this world no peacefulness, they would loose the civilization that they have built it.
Many explosion that was done by terrorist behalf of Moslem and Jihad would emerge bad opinion about Islam, and it was happened, all people said that fundamentalism and all violence, cruelty and impertinence always identical with Islam. Islam is the religion that in the same manner as other religion, which like peacefulness and no violence. As Buddha that teaches the simplicity, as the Christian that teaches love and affection, also as Confucianism that teaches discretion.
Islam never teaches Moslem to hurt other people with violence and also flaw although other people hurt us, but we have to know that Islam always give us the way to make people follow our religion without it.
Jihad or Holy war is not like what now days happened, the friend asked to the prophet Muhammad, ”What is the best jihad?”, Prophet said, “The best jihad is says the truth to fight the evil, the best jihad is the good pilgrimage, the best jihad is serve parents, the best jihad is to fight the carnal desire.”
So, Islam is never teaches to damage the peacefulness in the earth, but Islam is the religion that unite all difference, and make peacefulness.
We as the Moslem have to fight all things that would damage Islam’s name. Try to bringing back the freedom to have the peacefulness, without hurt others and creates the dissension. Because Islam like peace and love.
