Islam: Not Agaisnt Us?

On page 14 of the letter, the authors quote 3:13-15. [Emphasis added.]

As Muslims, we say to Christians that we are not against them and that Islam is not against them—so long as they do not wage war against Muslims on account of their religion, oppress them and drive them out of their homes, (in accordance with the verse of the Holy Qur’an [Al-Mumtahinah, 60:8] quoted above). Moreover, God says in the Holy Qur’an:  They are not all alike. Of the People of the Scripture there is a staunch community who recite the revelations of God in the night season, falling  prostrate (before Him). / They believe in God and the Last Day, and enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency, and vie one with another in good works. These are of the righteous. / And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them. God is Aware of those who ward off (evil). (Aal-‘Imran, 3:113-115)

It is not possible that the ayat refer to us, since we believe in the deity of  Jesus. Lets examine the context.

  • 3:110. You [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden), and you believe in Allâh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh – and rebellious against Allâh’s Command).

    3:111. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped.

    3:112. Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allâh, and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allâh) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allâh’s disobedience, crimes and sins).

    3:113. Not all of them are alike; a party of the people of the Scripture stand for the right, they recite the Verses of Allâh during the hours of the night, prostrating themselves in prayer.

    3:114. They believe in Allâh and the Last Day; they enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (Islâmic Monotheism, and following Prophet Muhammad) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and opposing Prophet Muhammad); and they hasten in (all) good works; and they are among the righteous.

    3:115. And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for Allâh knows well those who are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).

    3:116. Surely, those who reject Faith (disbelieve in Muhammad as being Allâh’s Prophet and in all that which he has brought from Allâh), neither their properties, nor their offspring will avail them aught against Allâh. They are the dwellers of the Fire, therein they will abide. (Tafsir At­Tabarî, Vol. 4, Page 58).

    3:117. The likeness of what they spend in this world is the likeness of a wind which is extremely cold; it struck the harvest of a people who did wrong aginst themselves and destroyed it, (i.e. the good deed of a person is only accepted if he is a monotheist and believes in all the Prophets of Allâh, including Christ and Muhammad). Allâh wronged them not, but they wronged themselves.

    3:118. O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitânah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed We have made plain to you the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses) if you understand.

    3:119. Lo! You are the ones who love them but they love you not, and you believe in all the Scriptures [i.e. you believe in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), while they disbelieve in your Book, the Qur’ân]. And when they meet you, they say, “We believe”. But when they are alone, they bite the tips of their fingers at you in rage. Say: “Perish in your rage. Certainly, Allâh knows what is in the breasts (all the secrets).”

    3:120. If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2), not the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allâh surrounds all that they do.

    3:121. And (remember) when you (Muhammad) left your household in the morning to post the believers at their stations for the battle (of Uhud). And Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.

    3:122. When two parties from among you were about to lose heart, but Allâh was their Walî (Supporter and Protector). And in Allâh should the believers put their trust.

    3:123. And Allâh has already made you victorious at Badr, when you were a weak little force. So fear Allâh much [abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden and love Allâh much, perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained] that you may be grateful.

    3:124. (Remember) when you (Muhammad) said to the believers, “Is it not enough for you that your Lord (Allâh) should help you with three thousand angels; sent down?”

    3:125. “Yes, if you hold on to patience and piety, and the enemy comes rushing at you; your Lord will help you with five thousand angels having marks (of distinction).”

    3:126. Allâh made it not but as a message of good news for you and as an assurance to your hearts. And there is no victory except from Allâh, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

    3:127. That He might cut off a part of those who disbelieve, or expose them to infamy, so that they retire frustrated.

Ok, we are alright so long as we do not make war on Muslims, right? And some of us are faithful to Allah and have no worries about the afterlife. Yeah, wrong!!! Islam practices kitman!  The Ulama have practiced it in their letter wherein they lie by obfuscation, selectively quoting the Qur’an.  As proof whereof I have supplied the immediate context  of the cited ayat.  Lets dig a little deeper.

  • You are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf  and forbid Al-Munkar and you believe in Allâh.  Muhammad’s audience were great guys; remember that the Qur’an was recited in his Mosque, the revelations were part of his Qutbah. So they enjoin good and forbid evil, ain’t that sweet? What does this ayeh really mean?  Muhammad told us already, but we weren’t listening. Now is the time to read his words and take them to heart.

    Sahih Bukhari  Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.

    Do you believe it? Why in Hell not?! Ignorant and recalcitrant readers require more proof. I am willing to supply corroborating evidence; are you willing to receive it?  Virtues of the Ummah of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, the Best Nation Ever  Ibn Kathir declares the hadith hassan. Its about capturing people in war and putting chains on their necks. How kind and loving is Islam!!!

  •  And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fâsiqûn  So most of us are rebels against Allah to be wared upon.
  • They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped. Oh, we won’t make war on Muslims, drive them off their land, etc? and we will be easy prey. Yeah, right.
  • Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allâh, and destruction is put over them. We don’t obey Allah, so we must be humiliated and destroyed. So much for the Islamic hand of peace!

    Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

    Muhammad plainly declared that he got his living by his spear and he would punish anyone who does not obey his command. Can you relate “abasement and humility”  in this hadith to  indignity and destruction in 3:112,  the ayeh immediately preceding the ayeh quoted by the Ulama?  And they accuse us of taking ayat out of context!

  • 113…115 are discussing the righteous minority.
  • 116 says we have no defender and will finish in the fire. The Good News that Muslims will Dominate the People of the Book
  • Read of 117 in the Tafsir linked above, it fits in with 116.
  • 118 forbids taking us as advisors, friends, etc. Muslims must be in positions of superiority over Kuffar.
  • 119-120  continue the theme of 117.
  • 121…125  give us a hint of the real relationship between  Muslim & Kuffar; Predator :: Prey. The Reason Behind the Battle of Uhud
  • there is no victory except from Allâh, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
  • That He might cut off a part of those who disbelieve, or expose them to infamy, so that they retire frustrated.  126-127 fit right in with 111-112.

    christ are lived more than 500 years under Ottoman Empire.Can u imagine these.?
    visit http://www.whyislam.org or islam.org an read quran.

  2. dajjal Says:

    Dhimmitude was horrible, with social and legal inferiority and the Jizya, but the Ottoman Empire went far beyond that. The Jannisary & Devshirm systems, revealed in all their horror by British diplomatic dispatches, are extremely shocking.

  3. deutsche Says:

    the Jizya was for protecting the people because they dont need to go to army.

  4. deutsche Says:

    horrible: after 500 years some religion some language some cultural background.
    learn more about Ottomans

  5. dajjal Says:

    Jizya is not a substitute for Zakat, nor is it in lieu of military service. Jizya is primarily a means of humiliation & economic coercion; secondarily a source of income to the Caliph.

    Answering Islam has an excellent article on Dhimmitude which includes the rules for collecting Jizya. At one time, the collector had to be seated, the payor standing; the collector was required to pull the payor’s beard and slap his ear while collecting the coins. See also Reliance of the Traveler.

    Yusuf Ali’s footnotes are not the best source of information on this subject!

  6. deutsche Says:

    Jewish and Christian was riches people in ottoman time how can be?
    how can we talk about schocking?
    _____________________

    Jizya
    In states ruled by Islamic law, jizya or jizyah (Arabic: جزْية) is a per capita tax imposed on free non-Muslim adult males who are neither old nor sick nor monks , known as dhimmis, in exchange for being allowed to practice their faith, subject to certain conditions, and to enjoy a measure of communal autonomy as well as being “entitled to Muslim protection from outside aggression and being exempted from military service”. Taxation from the perspective of dhimmis who came under the Muslim rule, was “a concrete continuation of the taxes paid to earlier regimes” (but now lower under the Muslim rule ) and from the point of view of the Muslim conqueror was a material proof of the dhimmi’s subjection.

  7. deutsche Says:

    burn with muhammad (inshaallah with his love)

  8. dajjal Says:

    Dhimmitude & Jizya were only imposed on two classes of people of the book:
    1. those who surrendered to Muslims without a fight
    2. those who were attacked and conquered by Muslims.

    The primary protection afforded was against Islam, for proof of this, see Bukhari9.92.388 and 4.52.196 . Protection against external attack was incident to protection of the Ummah occupying conquered territory.

  9. Defamation of Religions Resolution Revised « Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back Says:

    […] Islam: Not Agaisnt Us? […]

  10. Joe Six-Pack Says:

    Muslims did stretch the law by claiming that the U.S. owed them Tribute because of our ships traveling through the Med. The U.S. reacted by attacking and getting our men back and burning the ships. This is just one of the major issues at the root cause of the wars today regarding the war between Islam and the modern national government.

    • dajjal Says:

      Visit Wikipedia and read the Barbary War topic. The cause of their actions is delivered with extreme clarity.

      If you ain’t Muslim and have not submitted to a treaty of dhimmitude and paid tribute, you are fair game, its open season and there is no bag limit.

      I refer doubters and dissenters to Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 and 4.53.386, which latter hadith should be compared to the statement of the Dey of Algiers.
