Apapun yang terjadi kepada Anda, akan tetap menjadi sesuatu yang menguatkan Anda, bila Anda tidak mengijinkannya untuk melemahkan Anda.Maka mulailah dari tempat di mana Anda berada, dan mulailah sekarang. Anda sampai, hanya karena Anda berangkat.Dan ingatlah, bahwa Batas waktu itu dibuat bukan karena Anda harus selesai, tetapi karena Anda harus segera memulai. Dan setelah pengertian ini mendapatkan tempat yang kuat di hati Anda, perjelaslah bagi diri Anda sendiri, bahwa Keberhasilan Anda ada pada tempat yang lebih tinggi dari yang sedang Anda kerjakan sekarang. Kemudian, janganlah berlaku seperti orang yang mengeluhkan apa saja yang tidak terlihat di dalam sebuah gambar, Berfokuslah pada yang telah jelas terlihat, karena dari sana lah Anda mencapai tempat-tempat yang belum terlihat bahkan oleh imajinasi Anda. Lalu bekerja keraslah dalam kedamaian bahwa Anda telah melakukan yang benar. Janganlah berupaya menjelaskan mengapa Anda tidak mencapai yang belum Anda capai. Bekerjalah untuk mencapai yang telah jelas bagi Anda. Maka, Mulailah keberhasilan Anda dari mana pun Anda berada.(Mario Teguh)

What Does Islam Say about Terrorism?

Islam, a religion of mercy, does not permit terrorism. In the Quran, God has said:

“God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers.” (Quran 60:8)

The Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, used to prohibit soldiers from killing women and children,[1] and he would advise them: “...Do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child.”[2] And he also said: “Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years.”[3]

Also, the Prophet Muhammad has forbidden punishment with fire.[4]

He once listed murder as the second of the major sins,[5] and he even warned that on the Day of Judgment, “The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed.[6]”[7]

Muslims are even encouraged to be kind to animals and are forbidden to hurt them. Once the Prophet Muhammad said: “A woman was punished because she imprisoned a cat until it died. On account of this, she was doomed to Hell. While she imprisoned it, she did not give the cat food or drink, nor did she free it to eat the insects of the earth.”[8]

He also said that a man gave a very thirsty dog a drink, so God forgave his sins for this action. The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, was asked, “Messenger of God, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?” He said: “There is a reward for kindness to every living animal or human.”[9]

Additionally, while taking the life of an animal for food, Muslims are commanded to do so in a manner that causes the least amount of fright and suffering possible. The Prophet Muhammad said: “When you slaughter an animal, do so in the best way. One should sharpen his knife to reduce the suffering of the animal.”[10]

In light of these and other Islamic texts, the act of inciting terror in the hearts of defenseless civilians, the wholesale destruction of buildings and properties, the bombing and maiming of innocent men, women, and children are all forbidden and detestable acts according to Islam and the Muslims. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the vast majority have nothing to do with the violent events some have associated with Muslims. If an individual Muslim were to commit an act of terrorism, this person would be guilty of violating the laws of Islam.
