Who is Muslim and Penalty of Killing any Muslim ?

Assalamo Alaikum (WRWB)

By this Salaam, I assure you that be sure, that I will not hurt you in anyway. I will be peaceful with you, with your dignity, person, self-respect and belonging. You also responded me Walaikumassalaam, with the same spirit. I wonder, then why there is infighting between these salaam speaking peoples! Only for the reason that one does not belong to other's sect or school of thought! Or due to his attire and outlook? This is not me alone who is wondering. Millions of silent majority are wondering among us that what a hypocritical salaam is this! And the height of hypocrisy in our community at large is very much narrated in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Verse 85.

" And yet it is you only who kill each other and abandon your own people from their homes supporting one another in sin and hatred."

Now as a common man let me share my discovery with you here. I am just a common man. In my discovery, I found some fundamental rules commanded by The Qur'an and Hadees.

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 4 verse 94:

"O those who believe, when you go out in the cause of Allah, crosscheck, and never say to anyone who offers you a Salaam that, 'You are not a Mo'min': .. You, too, were once in the same condition - but ALLAH has been gracious unto you. So use your discernment and reasoning. ALLAH knows all your commissions and omissions. ..."

If anyone offers salaam to me, May he be strange to me, by salaams he has sent peace on me, I have no choice left. I have to treat him as Muslim regardless of his school of thoughts or attire or even his Eimaan as the Eimaan rests in the heart of the person and only ALLAH knows what intention was behind that Salaam. Still shamefully I hate him; I hurt him and torch his belongings and even his Masjids. How a deceitful Muslim am I! I must know that in chapter 4 verse 92 ALMIGHTY ALLAH has narrated that...

" And it is not allowed at all for a Mo'min to kill another Mo'min except it happened by error."

And in the next Verse Almighty ALLAH says...

"And whoever kills a Mo'min intentionally; his punishment is Hell-fire forever. ALLAH will condemn him, will reject him and will prepare for him awesome chastisement."

Have I prepared myself to enter in the JAHANNUM forever? If yes, then it is okay for me to kill other Muslims, torch their homes and even their Masjids or bomb them cruelly without fearing ALLAH.

But respected audience, ALHAMDULILLAH neither I am blind up to this extent nor my Rabb has kept me in dark. HE clearly says in the Verses of Holy Qur'an, what will be my end at HIM. And strange enough, the Prophet of Peace (s.a.w.s) also has not kept me in dark. As he was quoted in Saheeh Bukhari, Kitabussalah, Bab Fadl Istiqbale Qiblah.

"One who performs Salah like us, faces the direction of Qiblah and consumes our slaughtered animal is Muslim, and he is under the protection of Allah and His Messenger. So do not try to transgress in the protected things of Allah."

Respected audience, it is me who has been addressed by ALMIGHTY ALLAH. It would be a misconception if I assume that the message is for someone else. I have no choice left for any other Muslim of the world as these 3 conditions apply to all the Muslims regardless of their school of thoughts. Sorry respected audience, I cannot dare to transgress the protected human being by ALLAH and His Rasool (s.a.w.s). I cannot kill humans mercilessly by spreading sectarian violence. It is the Ahsaan of my Creator on me and the rest of humanity in prescribing in simply, categorical and in very open words that . Allah has given Religious freedom to every human and we are not allowing even sectarian freedom. It seems that majority of Muslims across the globe are ignorant of these verses in Holy Quran & Ahadees of Mohammed (s.a.w.s). Now, it is the need of the hour for me to go directly to the heavenly revealed verses and search out the moral conduct I have to follow.

The dignitaries coming from Muslim countries should extinguish this fire in their lands and take accounts of those who want to disturb the harmony among Muslims, take to task who are spreading sectarian violence and intolerance and making this world unworthy of human civilisation. This much I have today to share my views in this esteemed gathering.

Thank you very much for your patience may ALLAH bless us & guide us on Sirate Mustaqeem.
