I speak of the traditional knowledge in Islam and the knowledge of the saints of Islam.

Umm Ma'bad (may God be well pleased with her) a Companion of Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) said Muhammad's words resembled a string of pearls.

Two of the 201 names of Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) are Sahibul Bayani and Fasihul Lisani. They respectively mean "Owner of Rhetorics" and "Eloquent". Muhammad was a very eloquent speaker and a refined orator. His sayings are known as the Hadiths. The Qur'an, which is from God Himself is not the only scripture in Islam. There are also the sayings of Muhammad, the Hadiths. For example, there is the collection of Hadiths known as Bukhari, or Muslim, or Sunan Abu Daud or Tirmidhi, etc...

The Hadiths, like the Qur'an are not meant to be understood on one's own. People must refer to the saints of Islam for the meanings, because they are holy words. The saints of Islam who are the intimates of God Almighty and His beloved, Muhammad, know the meanings and teach them. Nevertheless, let us consider the beauty of the words of Muhammad, the Hadiths.

This is the very first Hadith in Bukhari.

Narrated by 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for."

Narrated by Anas, the Prophet said, "None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself." (Bukhari)

Note: The translation says Muslim brother, but Muhammad only said brother. Brother refers to one's fellow human being, obviously; and Imam Nawawi also said that brother refers to one's fellow human being.

I speak from the true knowledge of Islamism.

Narrated by 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "ha ha, they believe that hokum. What a bunch of mor-oons."

Which Hadith was the deal-breaker for ISIS? You know the one that says it's cool to cut off heads, but fire is reserved for God's punishment?

Pearls before swine. Geo. Carlin once said "it's all bullsh*t". Allah isn't any more real than Santa Claus, really. Just Bullsh*t.

Dear Muslim75
this Golden Rule must still be interpreted carefully
for what if someone wants to die for God and believes in killing other people for God thinking that is just

It is important for us to learn the difference with God's unconditional love, that seeks correction with forgiveness
and justice with mercy,
and not impose our conditioned views of love and justice on other people that may be flawed.

People are human and prone to project.

So if we think God's love of truth means to punish people to enforce honor,
and we inflict this on each other, this can still do great damage.

What would be justice is if those who believe in retributive justice have this enforced for them,
and those who believe and live by restorative justice have this enforced for them.

the problem is when people who believe in retribution impose on others who don't,
and the ones who believe in corrections try to enforce this with those who don't. then this causes injustice.

Narrated by Abu Huraira, the Prophet said, "The signs of a hypocrite are three: 1. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie. 2. Whenever he promises, he always breaks it (his promise ). 3. If you trust him, he proves to be dishonest. (If you keep something as a trust with him, he will not return it.)"

Narrated by Abu Huraira, Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever establishes the prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah's rewards (not to show off) then all his past sins will be forgiven."

Narrated by Abu Huraira, The Prophet said, "Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the nights."

This sounds very close to the Biblical scripture:
Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

As for forgiveness Matthew 6:14

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.' 14"For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15"But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.

And this is why we are all called to forgiveness in Christ Jesus to receive Restorative Justice,
so this retribution will end that otherwise leads to endless death and destruction, and all suffer for it.

May this division and retribution be ended, and peace and justice restored
to establish the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven. Amen.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Amr, a person asked Allah's Apostle . "What (sort of) deeds in or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" He replied, "To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you don't know."

Narrated by Abu Said Al-Khudri, Allah's Apostle said, "A time will come that the best property of a Muslim will be sheep which he will take on the top of mountains and the places of rainfall (valleys) so as to flee with his religion from afflictions."

Narrated by Al-Ma'rur, at Ar-Rabadha I met Abu Dhar who was wearing a cloak, and his slave, too, was wearing a similar one. I asked about the reason for it. He replied, "I abused a person by calling his mother with bad names." The Prophet said to me, 'O Abu Dhar! Did you abuse him by calling his mother with bad names You still have some characteristics of ignorance. Your slaves are your brothers and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. Do not ask them (slaves) to do things beyond their capacity (power) and if you do so, then help them.' "

I especially enjoyed the Hadith when somoene asked Mohammed in what direction he should urinate. :)

Narrated by 'Abdullah, when the following Verse was revealed: "It is those who believe and confuse not their belief with wrong (worshipping others besides Allah.)" (6:83), the companions of Allah's Apostle asked, "Who is amongst us who had not done injustice (wrong)?" Allah revealed: "No doubt, joining others in worship with Allah is a great injustice (wrong) indeed." (31.13)
