Terrorism

Commited to eradicating terrorism through education
Our commitment to eradicate terrorism

We at Oxford Salafi Dawah are devoted to eradicating terrorism in all of its forms. We actively engage with the local community to warn against and dispel any misconceptions & deviated understandings and ideologies spread by extremist groups, such as Isis, Al-Qa’ida, Boko Haram and their likes. We understand how detrimental holding extreme views can be and are fully committed to conducting and organising lectures & seminars to combat extremist ideologies and to raise awareness of the dangerous of radicalisation and the devastating, long-lasting effects it can have on a person and the society at large. To date we have distributed thousands of leaflets dedicated to dispel some of the misbeliefs promoted by extremist groups and have engaged in countless interactions with the public to raise awareness of such issues

Proofs from The Qur'an and Sayings of the Messenger

The Islamic view point on terrorism, extremism and fanaticism:
Allāh سبحانه وتعالى said in His Noble Book:
فَاسْتَقِمْ كَمَا أُمِرْتَ وَمَنْ تَابَ مَعَكَ وَلَا تَطْغَوْا ۚ إِنَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ
So stand (ask Allah to make) you (Muhammad) firm and straight (on the religion of Islamic Monotheism) as you are commanded and those (your companions) who turn in repentance (unto Allah) with you, and transgress not (Allah’s legal limits). Verily, He is All-Seer of what you do. [Surah Hūd: 112]

And Allāh تعالى said:
“مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَٰلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا ۚ
“Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely…” [Al-Māidah: 32]

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
“‏ إن الدين يسر، ولن يشاد الدين إلا غلبه”.
“The religion (of Islam) is easy, and never does a person take extremes in religion except that it overpowers him…” [Al-Bukhari: Book of Miscellany volume 1: 145]

And he ﷺ said:
‏”‏إِيَّاكُمْ وَالْغُلُوَّ فِي الدِّينِ فَإِنَّمَا أَهْلَكَ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمُ الْغُلُوُّ فِي الدِّينِ”‏ ‏.‏
“…And beware of going to extremes in religious matters, for those who came before you were destroyed because of going to extremes in religious matters.” [Ibnu Majah, authenticated by Al-Albani]

And he ﷺ said:
“هَلَكَ الْمُتَنَطِّعُونَ؛ هَلَكَ الْمُتَنَطِّعُونَ؛ هَلَكَ الْمُتَنَطِّعُونَ”
“Destroyed are those who were fanatic! Destroyed are those who were fanatic! Destroyed are those who were fanatic!”. [Sahih Muslim 2670 – ‘The Book of Knowledge’]
