Jamia Mosque imam Qazi Abdul Mateen recently gave a talk to youngsters about how Islam’s main greeting “assalamu alaikum” shows it is a religion of peace.
He said the greeting was a complete prayer that means “may God keep you at peace in this world and hereafter” and an “affirmation that your life, wealth, family and all your belongings are at peace from me”. He said: “True peace cannot be achieved if you have any hatred or moral indecency toward others. You cannot harm people and then pray for their peace.”
If you like a translation of this, please let us know. Muslims are forbidden to pray for slain enemies.
(This is what Tony BLiar means when he babbles about “education is the key”– by making British kids tolerate the intolerant, by making Brits submit to Islam, “Islamophobia” will vanish and we can all live in harmony, under Islam of course.).
