109 Verses From The Quran That Call For Violence

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

I will begin by admitting that the Christian Bible has many passages that call for violence, however other than the ones describing the end times, all those all those verses are in the Old Testament. When Christ came into the world, He taught that love and forgiveness is what we should practice, not hate and revenge. The Quran on the other hand teaches Muslims to kill and hate. There is no old or new dispensation when it comes to the teachings of Islam, it is all one era, with one aim. That aim is to spread Islam around the world, and to kill anyone who does not convert.

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to go to war with nonbelievers. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter. What follows are those verses.

    The Quran:


    “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places
    whence they drove you out, for persecution
    [of Muslims] is
    worse than slaughter [of non-believers]
    … but if they desist, then lo!
    Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until
    persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”
    historical context
    of this passage is not defensive warfare, since Muhammad and his Muslims
    had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan
    adversaries.  In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that
    Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they

    later did
    ).  The use of the word “persecution” by some Muslim translators is
    thus disingenuous (the actual Muslim words for persecution – “idtihad” – and
    oppression – a variation of “z-l-m” – do not appear in the verse).  The actual Arabic comes from “fitna” which can
    mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. 
    Taken as a whole, the context makes clear that violence is being authorized
    until “religion is for Allah” – ie. unbelievers desist in their


    Quran (2:244)
    “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth
    all things.”


    Quran (2:216)
    Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is
    possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing
    which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”
    only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also
    contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the
    audience was obviously not under attack at the time.  From the Hadith, we
    know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into

    raiding merchant caravans
    for loot.


    Quran (3:56)
    “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in
    this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”


    Quran (3:151)
    “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that
    they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. 

    This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity
    (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).


    Quran (4:74)
    “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for
    the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious,
    on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”
      The martyrs of Islam are
    unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter.  These Muslims
    are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the
    cause of Allah.  Here is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.


    Quran (4:76)
    “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”


    Quran (4:89)
    “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the
    same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in
    the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize
    them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or
    helpers from their ranks.”


    Quran (4:95)
    “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and
    those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their
    persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with
    their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith)
    Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished
    above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” 
    This passage
    criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting
    them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes.  It also
    demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the
    Quran, but
    rather a spiritual struggle.  Not only is the Arabic word used in this
    passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the
    physically disabled are given exemption.  (The Hadith reveals the context
    of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to
    engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).


    Quran (4:104)
    “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then
    surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…”
      Is pursuing
    an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?


    Quran (5:33)
    “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and
    strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered
    or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides
    or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this
    world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”


    Quran (8:12)
    “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore
    strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” 
    reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.


    Quran (8:15)
    “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not
    your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless
    maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath
    from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”


    Quran (8:39)
    “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder,
    unbelief) and religion should
    be only for Allah” 
    Some translations interpret “fitna” as
    “persecution”, but the traditional understanding of this word is not supported
    by the historical context (See notes for  2:293, also).  The Meccans were simply refusing
    Muhammad access to their city during Haj.  Other Muslims were allowed
    to travel there – just not as an armed group, since Muhammad had declared war on
    Mecca prior to his eviction.  The Meccans were also acting in defense of
    their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and
    establish Islam by force (which he later did).  Hence the critical part of
    this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah”,
    meaning that the true justification of violence was the unbelief of the
    According to the Sira (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 324) Muhammad further explains that “Allah must have no rivals.”


    Quran (8:57)
    “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in
    those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”


    Quran (8:59-60)
    “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s
    Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape.  Make ready for them all thou canst of
    (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of
    Allah and your enemy.”


    Quran (8:65)
    “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”


    Quran (9:5)
    “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters
    wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait
    for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the
    poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” 
    According to this
    verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam. 
    Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions
    Five Pillars.


    Quran (9:14)
    “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to


    Quran (9:20)
    “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth
    and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These
    are they who are triumphant.” 
    The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.


    Quran (9:29)
    “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that
    forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge
    the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they
    pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” 

    “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews.  This was one of the
    final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military
    expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the
    Christian world in just the next 100 years.  Islam is intended to dominate
    all other people and faiths.

    Quran (9:30)
    “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The
    Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate
    the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are
    turned away!”


    Quran (9:38-39)
    “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to
    go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the
    life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as
    compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a
    grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” 
    This is a warning to
    those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.


    Quran (9:41)
    “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and
    your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.” 

    See also the verse that follows (9:42)
    – “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would
    (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed)
    on them”
      This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in
    self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long
    distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case,
    according to the historians).

    Quran (9:73)
    “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be
    unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” 

    Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely
    firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter.  It also explains
    why today’s devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.


    Quran (9:88)
    “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with
    their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they
    who will prosper.”

    Quran (9:111)
    “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for
    theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and
    slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the
    Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah?
    then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement


    Quran (9:123)
    “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and
    let them find in you hardness.”



    – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a
    family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either
    through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion.  The story (which is not
    found in any Jewish or Christian source) tells of Moses encountering a man with
    “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the
    surface, but are then justified according to later explanation.  One such
    action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74).  However, the wise
    man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by
    “disobedience and ingratitude.”  He was killed so that Allah could provide
    them a ‘better’ son.  (Note: This is one reason why honor killing
    is sanctioned by Sharia.  Reliance of the Traveler (Umdat al-Saliq) says
    that punishment for murder is not applicable when a parent or grandparent kills
    their offspring (o.1.1-2).)


    Quran (21:44)
    “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until
    the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land
    (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”


    Quran (25:52)
    “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the
    utmost strenuousness…”
       “Strive against” is
    Jihad – obviously not in the personal context.  It’s also significant to
    point out that this is a Meccan verse.



    “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the
    alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them,
    then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while.  Accursed, they
    will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”
    This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder”
    in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to
    “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167)
    and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those with “diseased hearts” (which include Jews and
    ), and “alarmists” or “agitators who include those who merely speak
    out against Islam, according to Muhammad’s biographers.  It is worth noting
    that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today’s
    terrorists do.  If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of
    Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah’s eternal word to Muslim


    Quran (47:3-4)
    “Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe
    follow the truth from their lord.  Thus does Allah set forth form men their
    lessons by similitude.  Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks
    until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,” 

    Those who reject Allah are to be subdued in battle.  The verse goes on to
    say the only reason Allah doesn’t do the dirty work himself is in order to to
    test the faithfulness of Muslims.  Those who kill pass the test. “But if
    it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them
    (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But
    those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be


    Quran (47:35)
    “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be
    (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,”   


    Quran (48:17)
    “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is
    there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth
    Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers
    flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.” 

    Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle.’ 
    Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?


    Quran (48:29)
    “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless)
    against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” 
    Islam is
    not about treating everyone equally.  There are two very
    distinct standards that are applied based on religious status.


    Quran (61:4)
    “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way” 
    Religion of Peace, indeed!  This is followed by (61:9):
    “He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the
    religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even
    though the infidels may resist


    Quran (61:10-12)
    “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a
    grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye
    strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons:
    That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and
    admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in
    Gardens of Eternity.”
      This verse was given in battle.  It uses
    the Arabic word, Jihad.


    Quran (66:9)
    “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be
    stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” 

    The root word of “Jihad” is used again here.  The context is clearly holy
    war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites” – those who
    call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

    From the Hadith:


    Bukhari (52:177)
    Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be
    established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will
    be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”


    Bukhari (52:256)
    The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to
    attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women
    and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are
    from them (i.e. pagans).”
     In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is
    permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. 
    This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.


    Bukhari (52:220)
    Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious
    with terror’


    Abu Dawud (14:2526)
    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things
    are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is
    no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and
    not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be
    performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day
    the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)


    Abu Dawud (14:2527)
    The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah
    (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler,
    whether he is pious or impious


    Muslim (1:33)
    the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to
    fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that
    Muhammad is the messenger of Allah


    Bukhari (8:387)
    – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the
    people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’. 
    And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we
    slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not
    interfere with them except legally.”


    Muslim (1:30)
    “The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so
    long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”


    Muslim (1:149)
    “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which
    of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and
    Jihad in His cause…”


    Muslim (20:4645)
    “…He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said:
    There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade
    one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal
    to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id) said: What is that
    act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!”


    Muslim (20:4696)
    “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:
    ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any
    desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.'”


    Muslim (19:4321-4323)
    – Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over
    the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against
    unbelievers.  His response: “They are of them (meaning the enemy).”


    Tabari 7:97 
    The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew
    who falls under your power.” 
    Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s
    men because he insulted Islam.  Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his
    orders to kill.  An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his
    Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.


    Tabari 9:69 
    “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us”  The words of
    Muhammad, prophet of Islam.


    Tabari 17:187 
    “‘By God, our religion (din) from which we have departed is better and more
    correct than that which these people follow. Their religion does not stop them
    from shedding blood, terrifying the roads, and seizing properties.’ And they
    returned to their former religion.”
      The words of a group of Christians
    who had converted to Islam, but realized their error after being shocked by the
    violence and looting committed in the name of Allah.  The price of their
    decision to return to a religion of peace was that the men were beheaded and the
    woman and children enslaved by the caliph Ali.


    Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 327:
    – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A
    slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of
    this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires
    killing them to manifest the religion.'”


    Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 990: –
    Lest anyone think that cutting off someone’s head while screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’
    is a modern creation, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who
    seems to approve.


    Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992: –
    “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.”
     Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.
