Does anyone have any idea how muslims treat kafirs? I mean should we respect kafirs or should we hate them? Or would the most muslim way be to just be normal like all others but not getting good friends with them.. I would really like if you have some hadiths and surrahs about this...Thank you

As I said earlier in other columns, most of those involved here are obviously from homogeneous societies or societies with a large majority of one religion. But for many others, they come from mutli-racial societies of many different religious beliefs. I come from such a society where a family has brothers and sisters, aunties and uncles embracing different religions. Will you who are fond of quoting verses of the Quran and Hadiths (most out of proper contacts)still maintain your opinions if you were in my shoes? If you make enemies or just being hostile in your behavior and reactions to even your own blood (so to speak), how do you think you can ever spread the Words of Allah? Who would listen to you who hate them? Even your relatives would "abandon" you, let alone others as a result of your "unfriendly" approaches based not on your religious teachings but your misunderstanding of them..............

Well, I am in a wrong age group here. If you say that most of you are below 30, then I can be a father to most of you, thus qualifying me to offer (not necessarily acceptable) some advice. Read the story of Sheik Yusuf Estes, a former Christian Music Minister, on what sparked him to study Islam revert together with his whole family. Go to the DeenShow.com and seek out his story and you will hear that he was firstly impressed with the behavior of a muslim visitor to his home, whom he was bent earlier to convert to Christianity. They are many others like him. Visit also the GuideUs TV broadcast from Chicago hosted by Eddie. Perhaps, after listening to all these, you will be more mellowed in your encounters with the non-muslims even if they throw nasty remarks at you. They will realize that they actually focus on muslims instead of Islam. Every religion has its bad hats or black sheep and Christians, no less. There used to be numerous news of the IRAs in the Press but there were never termed as Catholic terrorists, why a different dub on muslims, who hijack Islam for whatever reasons then? I suggest you listen to Sheik Yusuf if you haven't.......

I am not a Muslim, I am Christian. I started learning about Islam recently after becoming friends with a few Muslims from Asia. Their behavior and true love for Allah is what brought me to study Islam. Let me just say a few things. First, please do not let the behavior of the Americans be a guideline for how non-believers treat Muslims. I am American and most Americans do not agree with the actions of the American government. However America is not a theocracy so many Americans are taught to honor their country more than God so they stand behind the decisions of the government even when they do not agree. This is unfortunate but true. Most Americans do not treat Muslims badly. Most Americans respect each others beliefs. Second, again I am new to Islam, but I believe the Qur'an says "Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes - from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly." 60:8 Third, I have said that, with over 2 billion people claiming to be Christian, Christianity is the largest religion in the world BUT with about 1.5 billion Muslims, Islam is the largest FAITH in the world. So many Christians call themselves Christians because they believe in Jesus Christ. They do not live a life for God. We have so much to learn from Muslims in that respect. By watching you, whether I choose to convert to Islam or not, I will know God better and put him first in my life, which will make me a better person. Your behavior is setting an example for the non-believers. You do not have to befriend non-believers, but by showing them respect even when they show you none you prove that God's people are above the non-believers.

Salam MashAllah, Inshallah May Allah help you in your next step,and no Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus Christ A.S (Alyhi-As-Salam)

Salam, please we do not have to treat the kafirs badly because they treat us badly. respect and kindness to them to them is a very good way of inviting them to islam. the reward of a muslim is more in the hereafter than in this world, so please we just have to endure this life and know that it will soon come to an end. If someone is killed because he is a muslim, he has died as a matyr. why don't we look at it in this direction, the kafirs are doing a favour to any muslim that they killed because of his faith. our generation will not be the first set of muslims that are suffering. May Allah SWT put an end to the war on muslims around the world
