The Qur'an and 'moderate' Muslims

Did you know that during the life of Muhammad he knew some Muslims who did' want to fight Jihad, and who just wanted to get along? They were moderate folks, you know.

The Qur'an itself addresses them with these words:
"Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it maybe that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know." (2:216)
The lesson is that living at peace with non-Muslims is not okay! Allah knows what is best, and that's jihad.

Pray for Muslims to know the prince of peace. Pray for Muslims to know "the one, true God, and Jesus Christ whom [he] has sent" (Jn 17:3).
