Do the Holy Books encourage warfare by stating that punishment in Hell is promised to non-combatants and by giving a guarantee of entrance into Heaven as a reward for those who fight and die in the cause of God or Allah? (Jihad)

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

James 1:20 – For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God...

James 4:1 & 8 – 1. From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not here, even of your lusts… 8. Cleanse your hands ye sinners…

An-Nisa 4:77 – “Our Lord! Why have you ordained fighting for us?... Say (to them, O Muhammad): the Hereafter will be better for him who fears Allah.

Al-Fath 48:16 – Tell the desert Arabs who were left behind: “You will soon be called upon to fight a mighty people. You will have to fight them, or they will submit… if you turn your backs as you did before, Allah will punish you with a painful torment. Historical Events
