Muslim Response: Extremists Hijack Bus And Kill 28 Non-Muslims

As Muslims we need to get the word out there that the reported actions of Al Shabab extremists are indeed unislamic. If we fail to do so there will be more ignorant crimes such as the killing of 28 non-Muslims in a bus hijack as well as more hatred of Muslims (Islamophobia) around the world.
The stakes are high!
While the right wing revel in the murders of 28 non-Muslims in Kenya by reportedly Al Shabab militants the informed Muslim is condemning the murderers and telling folk that these actions are totally unislamic.
While the right wing misuse this horrific terrorist act to hate-monger against Muslims informed Muslims are denouncing the attack, considering the families of those lost ones as well as getting the word out that Islam does not allow such terrorism in order to stop this type of ignorant crime taking place in the future.

Report from Sky News:
Al Shabab militants have hijacked a bus in Kenya, with gunmen singling out 28 non-Muslims and shooting them dead, according to police.
One officer said the passengers, who were travelling to Nairobi, were "brutally executed" by the Islamic extremists. His colleague claimed that the 60 people on board were told to disembark, and then sorted into two groups based on the faith they professed.
The attack took place in Mandera, a town on the border between Kenya and Somalia. An estimated 100 militants were involved.

According to a regional police chief, the extremists were planning to drive the non-Muslims into Somalia, but the bus became stuck.Al Shabab, a well-known terror organisation, was also responsible for the attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, which left 67 people dead. The group, which has been fighting to topple Somalia's government, said last September's massacre was in retaliation to the continued presence of Kenyan troops in the warring country
Terrorist act of hijacking a bus in Kenya and killing 28 non-Muslims is a CRIME according to Sharia (Islamic Law)

The Islamophobes are spreading the lie that Islam allows acts such as the bus hijack and killings in Kenya. Here we see this lie refuted in 10 seconds by a Muslim scholar!

Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad's 10 second comment destroy the Islamophobes' false narrative of 'Islam preaches terrorism'. He states, according to Sharia, terrorism is classified as Hiraba (Hirabah) which is punishable by death. Thus we learn, Sharia is against terrorism.

What is Hirabah?

The term hirabah refers to public terrorism in a war against society and civilization.  In legal terminology it is defined as “spreading mischief in the land,” but its precise meaning, as defined by Professor Khalid Abou el Fadl, is “killing by stealth and targeting a defenseless victim in a way intended to cause terror in society.”  This is the Islamic definition of terrorism.  It is the very opposite of jihad.
The term hirabah comes from the root hariba, a verb that means to become angry and enraged.  By derivation the nown harb (pl. hurub) means variously “war” and “enemy.” 
[Dr. Robert D. Crane, Hirabah versus Jihad,]

Here's Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad informing us that terrorist acts such as those carried out on the World Trade Center are actually seen as a crime punishable by death according to Sharia. He distinguishes between Jihad and terrorism - the two are not the same thing. The Sheikh highlights another important point to take away; terrorism does not have its origins in Islam, it's something that was borne from the French revolution and 19th century anarchist movements as well as pointing out that terrorism is an expression of westernization!

Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad also mentions the lack of reporting in the West of what the official Muslim position on matters actually is.

Terrorism is an expression of Westernization - Abdal Hakim Murad

Muslims against terrorism

AlShabaab and Alqaeda, why they commit terrorism - Asghar Bukhari:

Muslims against terrorism

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
