Myth vs Fact #23

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 3:169 Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allâh as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision.
Tafsir The Great Reward for Those Who migrate in the Cause of Allah

The Reason and Wisdom Behind the Defeat at Uhud

Virtues of the Martyrs

Bottom Line: Examine the title of the first of three tafsirs listed above. Migration is a euphemism for joining Jihad.  If you doubt this fact, go to and search for migrate; examine the context in which it is used.  In this ayeh and the surreounding context, Moe is rabble rousing: inciting the Muslims to fight disbelievers. He is working on overcoming objections to Jihad.
