Various acts of terrorism such act of riots, suicide bombings, and the greatest one was the attack on September 11th 2001 at the World Trade Center (WTC) USA, which tom down the image of Islam to the world people in which the acts committed by Moslems with inhuman. Whereas, the terrorism committed by the radical Islamists reflects acts of beyond complete teaching of Islam. Islam teaches people having excellent characters (akhlaqul karimah), encompassing the teaching humanity, the defense on the values of humanism in regard to building a mutual relationship with others (hablumminannaas ). This article argues that Islam as a religion or an ideology does not content the people t commit coercions in resolving any conflict. In fact, coercions which resulted disadvantageous and sufferings t other people or event to the innocents must be prevented. Islam encourages the people to stand firm and stri against despicable moral and acts of against God (asysyiddaa 'u 'alalkuffar). However, more humanly characters are strongly encouraged and taught in the acts towards Islam as a manifestation of the excellent moral teaching (akhlaqul kariimah).
