Someone attempted to separate these groups from Islam. Is it a genuine attempt? This person gave 7 main points to prove that. I am going to present the points and I will prove that these groups are actually more muslim that those who claim that Islam means peace.
This Muslim says: The Boko Haram kidnapped girls and forced them to change their religion.
While Islam says: “Let there be no compulsion in religion.....” (Qur’an 2:256)
My reply: Sahih Muslim 3371 says:
We went out with Allah’s Messenger on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and TOOK CAPTIVE some excellent arab women…… WE ALSO DESIRED RANSOM for them.
If Muhammad kidnapped women, and if Muhammad is the best example of how a muslim should be, who are you to accuse Boko Haram for doing exactly what your role model did?
