End of terrorism and declaration of peaceful coexistence

End of terrorism and declaration of peaceful coexistence

 

In the days of ignorance in lieu of the murder of 1 person, several people were killed and this course of vengeance would continue for several centuries.  Fighting for a trivial, unimportant reason and taking each others’ lives was not uncommon at all.  Thus, the wars would go on.  When a war would start, there would be no end in sight and they would continue for years and years.  One war was carried for 120 years.  The end result of these long drawn wars was that there was no peace in the society at all.  Terror and barbarity were prevalent and there would always be an atmosphere of fear and anxiety.

 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) ended this inhumane, terrorist custom; He said:

 

Lo! There will be no revenge-killings for the bloodshed of the days of ignorance

 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) declared human life as sacred; He said:

 

O People, indeed your lives, your properties and your honor are sacred and inviolable to you

 

With these words, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) ended terrorism and gave the universal message of peaceful coexistence.
