May Peace be upon You!

"Asalamu Alaykum" literally translated from Arabic means may peace be upon you! Sometimes, i think that certain muslims should meditate more deeply on the meaning of that greeting. Thousands of christans have been displaced in iraq and are still enduring persecution under the so called "ISIS" group. Innocent children have been martyred for refusing to renounce their christian belief. In Africa, thousands of people have been killed in Nigeria and others abducted under "boko haram" group.



I read something on a website last week that said why is it that other religions in the world can live in peace side by side but there is always conflict with Islam? I understand that we are all sensitive when it comes to religion but why must certain Muslims resort to violence when they feel that their faith has been slighted? In Christianity, Jesus taught us to turn the other cheek when we are slighted by others and to forgive those who hurt us. I think that Muslim clerics need to condemn senseless acts of violence which are often perpetrated by some should i say over zealous sections of Muslims. Their is no justification for murdering innocent children and terrorizing people in the name of God!



There are many peace loving Muslims out there and i am happy to say that i work with a kind hearted Muslim lady. We can co exist in peace with one another and learn to respect each others beliefs without resorting to senseless acts of terror and bloodshed. "Asalamu Alaykum, Peace to you All."
