Assalamalecum WA rehmatullahi WA barakhatahu.we know that in this world many namesake Muslims are behind various wrong things because of which the whole community pays.but if you observe A Muslim means a person who submits his will to Allah and obtain peace,in broader aspect a person who follows Qur'an and sayings of prophet is a real Muslim.a person does not need to have an Arabic or Persian name to b a Muslim,even with the names such as David etc,but if he follows Qur'an can b a Muslim.so all these terrorists who say that they are doing this for Allah actually they are companions of Satan and had earned a ticket for hell,because it is mentioned in Surah Al Maidah ch 5 v 32-if U save an innocent human being,as if U have save the whole humanity,but if U kill an innocent human being as if U have killed the whole humanity.so if a person goes opposite to this verse,he is not a Muslim.Allahfiz

Meaning of the word Islam < Some Muslims will say , It is the Submission to the will of their God , Allah . However , The word Islaam is taken from the 5th name of their God , Allah , As Salaam meaning The Peace , '' Taken from The Ashuric / Syriac Arabic root word '' Salama , Meaning '' To Have , To Be Peaceful ''; Which Euro-Arab and Muslims greeting '' As Salaamu 'Alaykum , '' Meaning '' Peace Be Upon You , Come from , The word Salaam was derived from The Aramic / Hebrew word Shalom , Meaning '' Peace . ''

The word Muslim is derived from The Ashuric / Syriac Arabic word Salama meaning '' One Who Is Of Peace ,


One doesn't go to school let His / her's mind to die , They go to school so that their mind will come alive .

Similarly those who are born into a Muslim family and carry an "Islamic name" but do not practice Islam is also not a Muslim. The minimum requirement to be a Muslim is to practice the Five Pillars of Islam.

Those terrorists who pick up a gun with the intent to kill an innocent soul has also left the fold of Islam and he is not a Muslim.

While I can certainly understand your passion on such issues as those mentioned in your above post Abu Loren, please know and understand, that you must provide evidence to support your assertions.

If you are asking me for evidence from Islamic Jurisprudence then it is not there. But logic tells me that the only time a Muslim can pick up a gun is to fight in the way of Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala. These terrorists are not fighting in the way of Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala but for their own personal reasons which are mainly geo-political.
 
The Somali terroist organisation Al Shabaab has now allegedly tageted Muslims in the UK as being their enemy and was on their 'hit list'. Tell me what a Muslim can be called who kills a fellow Muslim.

What about requirements to be a Muslim? What's your evidence? A distinction should be made between killing and murder, however murder has a penal code, and a much worse penalty in the next life provided one's repentance isn't accepted.

I'm surprised you ask these questions. It is very clear when it says that in the Qur'an that killing is a great sin and the following Hadith makes it clear.
 
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

Allah's Messenger (PBUH) mentioned the greatest sins or he was asked about the greatest sins. He said, "To join partners in worship with Allah; to kill a soul which Allah has forbidden to kill; and to be undutiful or unkind to one's parents." The Prophet (PBUH) added, "Shall I inform you of the biggest of the great sins? That is the forged statement or the false witness." Shu`ba (the sub-narrator) states that most probably the Prophet said, "the false witness."

Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 5977
In-book reference : Book 78, Hadith 8
USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 8
