In the name of Allah....

As muslims when we do something we always say

"In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful".

I am just wondering and curious as to, what exactly should we do in Allah(SWT).

Is it right to kill innocent human beings in the name of Allah (SWT) or is it an injustice and a crime done? How can you justify these killings or jihads, where innocent lives are taken away??

The Allah(swt) I am familiar with is the most gracious and the most merciful of all. So where do these 'terrorsits' get off saying that they are doing this for Allah(swt) and for Islam???

And more disturbingly, how did the Taliban or what did the Taliban get off on, when they committed those atrocities against women and children in Afghanistan??
To keep it close to home, where do some of these self proclaimed "sheiks" get off on telling women what to do, what to not to do, how to speak, how not to speak, where to walk, where to sleep, and bla bla bla in the Name of Islam and Allah(swt?). How do they justify it??
And least but not last, WHAT ABOUT YOU??? How do you justify to yourself, that;

1) it is alright for an adult male to marry a girl child? (would you stand back if that was your little girl?)

2) that is is alright for women to sleep on the floor while the husband gets the bed - because a wife should never be in the same category as their husband?

3)it is alright to lock your wife and children in the house, in case they dared to show their face? who is responsible, in case of a fire and they suffocate to death?

I could go on and on. I just don't understand how people justify these by using or rather abusing Islam. And most of all, why are people turnig a blind eye to this??
