Myth vs Fact #87

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 9:120 It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allah’s Messenger (Muhammad SAW when fighting in Allah’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allah, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allah wastes not the reward of the Muhsinun
Tafsir Allah the Exalted here explains His order to Muslims to march forth with the Messenger of Allah for the battle of Tabuk.

Rewards of Jihad

The Order to speak the Truth

Bottom Line: This Surah is about the gazwat against Tabuk. Its purpose is to reprimand those who refused to join the expedition.  Tabk was an offensive mission. Note that inflicting injury upon an enemy is a deed of righteousness. You are looking at clear proof of the fact that Islam is aggressive, not peaceful.
