It is said that the Prophet Muhammad predicted a day when the clergy of Islam would be the worst monsters upon the earth, and a true scholar would be rare to find. Some even say that he foresaw the day of terrorism, when many would depart from the true teachings of Islam and follow wicked men who would make mischief in the world. I have read the Quran myself, and noticed many passages which state that Allah takes no pleasure in those who cause mischief upon the earth. And that those who oppress or attack the innocent will have no mercy from Allah and suffer a grievous retribution in the end. If these sayings are so plentiful in the Quran that even I notice them, then how is it that many Muslims or Muslim clerics seem to act as if they do not exist? One should think long and hard before going out on a murdering spree in the name of God, because you just may be following a twisted ideology of man; In fact, that is what anyone who embarks upon this path is doing.
Muhammad also said, "The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr. Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith. None of you truly believe until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself." Does this sound like the words of someone who promotes mass murder? It does not. And for those who twist the words and believe that this kindness is only ment for fellow Muslims, you are greatly mistaken and have obviously ignored the verses in the Quran that tell the Muslim to live in peace among those of different cultures and faiths. Do not blindly follow those who call themselves your spiritual leaders, because they may be leading you to the very hell you're trying to avoid in the hereafter. Open your hearts, read your scriptures, and therein you will find the true nature of God.
