DISTORTIONS ABOUT ISLAM Article(s)
1. The Holy War ( Jihad )
War is not an objective of Islam nor is it the normal course of Muslims. It is only the last resort and is used under the most extraordinary circumstances when all other measures fail. This is the actual status of war in Islam. Islam is the religion of peace: its meaning is peace; one of God’s names is peace; the daily greetings of Muslims and angels are peace; paradise is the house of peace, the adjective ‘Muslim’ means Peaceful.
2. Jesus, Son of Mary
Before anything can be said, three points must be made clear. First, a Muslim is quite at ease as far as the attitude of Islam towards Jesus is concerned; his mind is settled, his conscience is clear, and his belief is sound.
3. Polygamy (Plurality of Wives)
Strictly speaking, polygamy means the plurality of mates. More specifically, if a man has more than one wife at the same time, this is called polygyny.
4. Marriage and Divorce
One of the most distorted concepts of Islam is the real meaning of marriage.
5. The Status of Woman in Islam
The status of woman in Islam constitutes no problem.
