The problem

The problem with the quickly spread news about muslims being terrorists is that it doesn't happen when terrorism is practiced against us muslims by people from other religions or even no religion do you ever see that on the news? Do you every see what happened to muslims who were literally not bothering anyone, the terrorists who consider that they are doing what islam tells us are not following the rule that Allah put for us and that is that you cant ki** anyone ever unless it was for
1. Self defense
2.they kil**d someone : not by mistake/ for self-defense
By the way No.2 is there for a reason and that is so kil***g doesn't seem like something people can do without consequences and so that people are scarred of doing it due to the consequence being their life as well and this is fair enough in my opinion you made someone lose their life.
And the ayat in the Quran proof that!
They are not doing what we muslims are told to do and that is being kind, forgiving, treating our family in the best way, Islam my beautiful religion its only purpose is that we follow what Allah told us to do and that is simply put being decent humans who treat others well and have a heart that can forgive mistakes, I hope that the fact that 1 billion people aren't seen as terrorists just because the media wants that is seen even if it not this is the truth .
