“114 chapters in the Quran, 86-90 are classified as Meccan” Unquote
Quran does not classify the verses or the chapters to be Meccans or Medinian .
This has perhaps been done later on the basis of Hadith, which never existed in the time of Muhammad and was collected 250/300 years after Muhammad, or by guesswork; and therefore has no relevance with our present discussion.
A particular verse and the verses in the context quite clarify the situation at hand; hence no need of any such classification.
Quran is the first and the foremost source of guidance of Islam/Muhammad for the Muslims whatever the denomination.
I don’t debate with anybody to win; I only discuss.
Our present discussion will remain focused on the topic “There is no violent verse in Quran if a verse is seen with the verses in the context”.
That is where our discussion began. I will ignore all other things that our friend bobbierileyjr mentions, please.
The discussion is open for everybody of any religion or no-religion, no bar from me.
No list is to be discussed; one verse at a time with the verses in the context. We can discuss verse by verse, as many verses as our friends may want to.

Quote “And why would you leave out Sura 5:38
“[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah . And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” Unquote
This verse was not missed; it was given in my post of March 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm; it was numbered [5:39] , and read “And as for the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands in retribution of their offence as an exemplary punishment from Allah. And Allah is Mighty, Wise.”
THE MISSING VERSE WAS:
“[5:38] They will wish to come out of the Fire, but they will not be able to come out of it, and they shall have a lasting punishment.”
Later the mistake was rectified with these words:
“I have made the necessary correction on my blog where I quoted the verses; you may check it there, please.
There is no edit button here for correction.”
Sorry for the inconvenience.
This is just to straighten the record.
