How could fanatic Sunni scholars distort the Islamic value of peace?

  

How could fanatic Sunni scholars distort the Islamic value of peace?
 
1- Arab Muslims had established their mighty empire after the death of the Prophet Mohamed. This was against the religion of Islam. To justify this transgression, old Sunni scholars distorted in their traditions the religion of Islam and its Quranic jurisprudence.
 
2- They firstly distorted the Quranic terminology.
The translation of the Quran is influenced by this fanatic wrong interpretation of the Quranic terminology. You will find all of them have only one meaning of the Quranic terms (Kafer) and (Mushrik) it’s related only to faith not to the behavior.
 
Let’s read some examples:
* The translations of one part of verse 36 from chapter 9:
YUSUFALI: (and fight the Pagans all together as they fight you all together)
PICKTHAL:(And wage war on all of thot;>PICKTHAL:(And wage war on all of the idolaters as they are waging war on all of you.)
SHAKIR: (and fight the polytheists all together as they fight you all together;)
The Saudi official translation: (Have mercy on us. You are our Maulâ (Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people. )
*Translation of verse 123 from chapter 9 :
YUSUFALI : (O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.)
PICKTHAL: (.O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him )
SHAKIR: (O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).
The Saudi official translation: (O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious)
 
Understanding Islam in that manner confirms Islam as a religion of terrorism, transgression, and aggression, as it orders Muslims to fight other people who have different religions, just because they do not have the same faith as Muslims..
However, the wise reader of the Quran will find contradiction between these translations and hundreds of the Quranic verses that confirm peace, justice and the unlimited freedom of religion in Islam.
 
3- The smart reader has to wonder:
* If this translation is true :( and fight the Pagans all together as they fight you all together), then it means that all those Pagans are starting war against Muslims, so Muslims have the right to counter them all.
* If this translation is true :( Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith.), so, as long as you ask God for mercy and protection why do you attack others?. It is ridiculous to attack other people and pray to God to help you overcome them. The only meaning is to be peaceful and have to fight to defend not to start war.  
* If this translation is true :( O you who believe, Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious.), then it is impossible to be pious and transgressor at the same time.
This means there is something wrong with these translations.
 
4 -Actually, the Quranic terms (Kafer) and (Moshrik) in these verses have nothing to do with the belief. They only mean transgressors in behavior.
(Kafer) and (Moshrik) have two different meanings according to the Quranic context. In matters of faith, it means: disbeliever, nonbeliever, pagan, infidel, idol worshipper, idolaters.
In matters of behavior, it means: one who commits aggression, it has another term: transgressor.
In those verses God talks about the transgressors who start war attacking the peaceful believers. So, the correct translation should be: (and fight the transgressors all together as they fight you all together.) (and have mercy on us, You are our Protector, and give us victory over the transgressors.) (O you who believe, Fight those of the transgressors who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the pious.).
 
5- Secondly, they distorted the Quranic Jurisprudence in Jihad.
Jihad in fighting has its order, its rule, and its final aim. The rules of Jihad control the order of Jihad, while the order and the rules are under the control of the final aim.
God says (Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loves not transgressors.)(2: 190). The order here is (Fight).The rule is (in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loves not transgressors.).So, jihad by fighting is only to defend, not to attack, thereby starting war.
They distorted it by ignoring the (rules) of Jihad and focusing on the (order), so, for them it is only (Fight) others, not according to God’s rule but for your human ego.
 
6 - The final aim of the Islamic Jihad is to prevent religious persecution, and to defend religious freedom. God says: (And fight them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah (To judge on the Judgment Day), but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.) (2: 193), Also :( And fight them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah; (To judge on the Judgment Day), but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do) (8: 39).
Here, the old Sunni scholars distorted it by changing the Quranic term ( Fitna). It means in the Quran persecution in dealing with people. They made it (disbelief).
The official Saudi has now this distortion. It says :( And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone).[3] But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zâlimûn (the polytheists, and wrong-doers).( 2 : 193)
(And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism, i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world[1]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.[2])( 8 : 39 )
 
7- Thirdly, after distorting the Quranic terminology and the Quranic laws in the Islamic Jihad, the old Sunni scholars forged this narration (Hadeeth) and ascribed it to the Prophet Mohamed,   two centuries and more after his death. This false narration, (Hadeeth) is : ( I am commanded to fight (all) the people until they testify that there is no god but one God, and I am the messenger of God).
 
8- This human made Sunni religion is insisting on distorting the Quranic terminology and the Quranic Jurisprudence and ascribing lies to the Prophet Mohamed, two centuries and more after his death under the name of (Hadeeth) and Sunna. According to their false (Sharee’a) , the old Sunni scholars have divided the world into two camps; their camp, camp of Islam, and the other camp, camp of warfare, of infidels. They are ordered to fight the infidels camp until the end of this world. They also use their (Sharee’a) to accuse other Muslim sects of being idol worshipper to justify fighting them as group and killing them as individuals, as apostates.
