Akhter Can’t Answer These Challenges!

November 28, 2008

From Akhter’s comment:

Muslims claim that their faith promotes justice, peace, and freedom. Critics of the faith (and some Muslims themselves) cite verses from the Qur’an that seem to promote violent, armed warfare. How can these different images be reconciled?

Answer: The entire Qur’an, taken as a complete text, gives a message of hope, faith, and peace to a faith community of one billion people. The overwhelming message is that peace is to be found through faith in God, and justice among fellow human beings.

From What does the Qur’an say about terrorism? [http://islam.about.com/od/terrorism/f/terrorism.htm] under the byline of Huda:

Muslims claim that their faith promotes justice, peace, and freedom. Critics of the faith (and some Muslims themselves) cite verses from the Qur’an that seem to promote violent, armed warfare. How can these different images be reconciled?

Answer: The entire Qur’an, taken as a complete text, gives a message of hope, faith, and peace to a faith community of one billion people. The overwhelming message is that peace is to be found through faith in God, and justice among fellow human beings.

Our correspondent must be:

  • ignorant
  • incoherent
  • inarticulate

or indolent. In any case, he is a plagiarist.

The entire Qur’an, consists of two types of verses: clear and ambiguous. The former are easily understood; to be believed & implemented. The latter are known only to Allah and left for him to implement. This fact becomes clear when we read 3:7 and its tafsir.

Surahs 8 & 9 contain clear, imperative verses which sanctify & mandate perpetual warfare; aggressive conquest. These two Surahs are full of rabble rousing & warmongering, but they are not the exclusive containers thereof, rabble rousing & warmongering are superintending threads woven throughout Allah’s book. Worse yet, they are exemplified in Moe’s Sunnah. Moe testified that he was ordered to fight the people until they do things his way. Click that link, read the hadith, then use the Sunnah link in the left side bar to find the index to Sahih Bukhari and read Books 52, 53 & 59. See how peaceful & benign Islam ain’t.

Islamic law, Shariah, is derived from what Allah & Moe said in the Qur’an and did on the battlefield as well as in the Mosque. It clearly states that Jihad against Kuffar in their home countries is a communal obligation binding upon Muslims in every year. [O9.1] It clearly states that the Caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians, citing 9:29 as the basis of that statute. [O9.8] It clearly states that the Caliph fights all other people until they become Muslim. [O9.9]

The numbers in the paragraph above refer to the Book, Chapter & Paragraph of the cited text in Reliance of The Traveller. Use the search engine in the tool bar to find them. Read them and curse Islam.

All of which must be mis-translated, mis-interpreted or taken out of context. Yeah, right. Ibn Kathir spent his long life studying and teaching the Qur’an & Sunnah. His exegeses is widely accepted as authentic. It presents the Arabic text, English translation, relevant ayat & ahadith upon which his explanation is based. Which of these is at variance with the obvious prima facie meaning of the text?

Explain the use of imperative terms:

  • order
  • command.

Explain the triumphalism:

  • Muslims will conquer
  • Muslims will Dominate

Square your explanation with:

Explain

No Muslim can truthfully & accurately meet these challenges. It won’t be done because it can’t be done, because Islam is mercenary & martial, a war machine & murder cult, not a legitimate religion.

Deception Confirmed!

June 28, 2008

Concerned Reader has commented on A Common Word Between Us and You: Deception! at Go Burn With Muhammad. Due to the length of the comment and the issues raised therein, which make it a target rich environment, I am responding to the comment in this post. The comment is block quoted paragraph by paragraph with my comments and supporting evidence between the paragraphs.

This is an interesting perspective. I definitely did not get the same picture from the Common Word document that you did.

I read claims by Muslims in the light of Islam's canon of scripture,
 tradition, law & commentary.

I actually saw it as laying a foundation for dialog between people of the two faiths. The document was actually showing that Christianity has as its roots, monotheism, even if some within Christianity have erred into bi or tri-theism.

Islam has a monologue, not a dialog. Since Islam declares itself
 to be superior, the only true religion, and denigrates all others,
 it only speaks, it does not listen except for whimpers of surrender.

I also saw within the document, the most hopeful part I might add, an statement to the effect that Christians and Jews who remain within monotheism and obey the two Commandments–love God and love your neighbor do not need to convert to Islam to be of the faithful.

Both Judaism & Christianity are monotheistic. Educated Christians 
know that the trinity is three manifestations of one deity, not 
three deities.  Muslims play selective word games against us.
  • 2:62. Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve . [The Meaning of Mu’min, or Believer]
  • 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 Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel), while they disbelieve in your Book, the Qur’an]. 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, Allah knows what is in the breasts (all the secrets).”
  • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
  • 9:30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allah’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

Read Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir of 2:62, linked after the verse above. That tafsir quotes 3:85, an extremely lucid expression of Islam’s intolerance. Allah cursed us and declared perpetual war upon us, which is reflected in Sharia.

The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29)…

A genuine, sincerely professed peace overture would violate Allah’s ordinance, subjecting the Ulema to eternal damnation.

I would say that this is highly significant. This is actually setting a precedent for monotheistic pluralism. Although, yes, Christians and Muslims have much to talk about in regards to our understanding of Jesus and his nature. True biblical faith Christians should have no doubts about their monotheism and thus, we can move forward in sharing from the Scriptures about some of our differences in understanding regarding other shared terms, such as the Gospel (Injil), the Word of God (Kalimatullah), and Messiah (al-Masih).

Islam's 'understanding' of Jesus is documented in 
The Defamation of Jesus Christ. The Qur'an claims that it 
confirms the earlier scriptures. Allah also asserts that Satan 
corrupted Christ's teaching by throwing in falsehood.

Lastly, Islam and its use of Jihad found in the Qur’an is purely of a defensive nature, similar to Augustine’s just war. Many of the Scriptures being used by jihadis are taken out of their historical and even Qur’anic context. One ayat or verse is used, but all you have to do is read one verse before or after and you will discover that there are conditions being drawn both for when you are allowed to attack and when you are compelled to cease fighting.

Purely defensive?
  • 2:190. And fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allâh likes not the transgressors.
  • 2:191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
  • 22:39. Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allâh is Able to give them (believers) victory

Those three ayat are obviously related to defensive warfare, but 9:29, quoted above and cited in Sharia as the basis for annual military expeditions against Kuffar, is clearly aggressive in nature. Why take my word for this? See what Ibn Kathir wrote about it.

  • The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
  • This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah’s religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims’ control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination

That ain’t defensive warfare! Moe himself confirms this fact.

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

Moe was ordered to fight until his victims recite Shehada and do things his way. When they comply their blood and property is sacred to Muslims. That means that until we submit to Islam, its open season on us.! By submitting, we protect ourselves from Moe, saving our lives & property.

Lets look a little deeper into Reliance of the Traveler.

@O9.1: The Obligatory Character of Jihad…

As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year.

The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants of that country, who must repel the non-Muslims with whatever they can).

The first listed condition, when we are in our own countries, is clearly offensive, not defensive. Note that it must be performed annually. This quote from the Hidaya, cited in a Swedish forum, confirms the blindingly obvious.

The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the traditions which are generally received to this effect. […] When the Muslims enter the enemy’s country and besiege the cities or strongholds of the infidels, it is necessary to invite them to embrace the faith, because Ibn Abbas relates of the Prophet that he never destroyed any without previously inviting them to embrace the faith. If, therefore, they embrace the faith, it is unnecessary to war with them, because that which was the design of the war is then obtained without war. […] If the infidels, upon receiving the call, neither consent to it nor agree to pay capitation tax, it is then incumbent on the Muslims to call upon God for assistance, and to make war upon them […]

“Those passages in the traditions” are fully documented with commentary in Riyud-us-Saliheen, Book 11, Chapter 234.

I wonder if part of the Common Word document mentioning war and defense has to do with the fact that our own president has used very religious vocabulary, even using the word “crusade”, in my opinion rather flippantly, esp. in this day and age. Considering some of the religious Right’s vocabulary on top of this, and what seems like a War on Terror becomes a war against Muslims, i.e. the statement by a Christian religious leader that Muhammad (saw) was a terrorist. If Muhammad (saw) was a terrorist, then would not those who follow the religion of Islam be the recipients of Bush’ war against terror?

Was World War II war against Panzers & Kamikazis or was it fought 
against National Socialists & Imperial Japan?  Terrorism is a 
tactic, not an enemy.  The enemy is an institution whose canon of 
scripture & tradition sanctifies & mandates casting terror as a 
battle tactic.
	President Bush's vocabulary  has been lacking in truth, 
moral clarity & consistency. War on Muslims? No, it is a war by 
Islam against Kuffar. Moe was a terrorist, and bragged about it.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331
Allah made me victorious by
awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’sjourney. …

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing
the widest meanings, and I have been made
victorious with terror
(cast in the hearts of the enemy), …

I don’t really want to argue politics, but I think the Common Word Document is not seeking Christians converting to Islam. The document actually is encouraging Christians to return (if they’ve left) to monotheism. Secondly, that monotheistic Christians and Jews actually do not have to accept Islam, but can remain faithful within their own religions. I think this is highly significant–I guess it’s a glass half empty vs. half full kinda thing eh?
Blessings, Concerned Reader

The Ulema’s missive is obviously an example of dawa, a summons to submission, which is a condition precedent to mounting an attack. Its tone is condescending and its content is deceptive, as I clearly documented in A Common Word Between Us and You: Deception! The claim that we can remain faithful to Christianity and be accepted by Islam is demonstrably false, as I proved by ample evidence above. We are accused of Kufr in the form of Shirk: associating partners with Allah. Christianity and Islam are clearly contradictory and incompatible. Islam is clearly the sworn enemy of Jews & Christians.

About George Weigel’s Comments

February 10, 2008

George Weigel,  Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C.  commented on the Ulema’s missive in an interview  with (CNA).  A transcript is available at the missive’s home page.

Jihadism, while a lethal distortion of Islam, nonetheless appeals to certain tendencies in Islamic self-understanding that can only be successfully overcome by a re-connection in the Muslim mind between faith and moral reason.

History confirms the lethality of Jihad. The ravings and writings of Muftis & Imams the world over  confirm  its continued appeal.  But can it be overcome, and was there ever a link between faith and moral reason in Islam?  Is Jihadism a distortion of Islam?

In the Qur’an, Allah tells Muslims that  Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you [Hilali & Khan 2:216]  prescribed, [Yusuf Ali] or  enjoined, [Shakir].  According to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir :

Allah says, `He willed for you to meet the armed enemy ﴿rather than the caravan﴾ so that He makes you prevail above them and gain victory over them, making His religion apparent and Islam victorious and dominant above all religions. He has perfect knowledge of the consequences of all things, you are surrounded by His wise planning, although people only like what appears favorable to them,’

Al-Taubah 111 reveals the relationship between Allah &  Muslims. [Hilali & Khan]

Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

This receives ample confirmation in As-Saff 9-14. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! [10-11 Hilali & Khan]

That vitiates the distortion theory!!

About the ideological conflict Mr.  Weigel says:

 Making compelling arguments in favor of the free society will reconnect us with the great ideas on which our liberties rest. Putting faith and reason into conversation will strengthen the unity of our diverse society. Defending religious freedom, and supporting those Muslim reformers who seek to make an Islamic case for tolerance and pluralism, reminds us that American civil society is built on truths about the dignity of human life.

Can America find leaders willing and able to make the compelling arguments for freedom, justice & dignity  against Islam’s intolerance, triumphalism & supremacism?  Can Islam be reformed, considering its perfection and the immutability of Allah’s word?

Merry Christmas from the Learned Scholars of Islam

December 27, 2007

I found at New Media Journal, a reference to a Yahoo News article about the Ulama’s Christmas greeting.  The text of the greeting is reproduced below, followed by a quote from a statement about the sanctity of innocent lives.  After quoting the documents, I will dissect them and expose the deceptions therein contained.

A Muslim Message of Thanks and of Christmas and New Year Greetings, December 2007

 In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

May God bless Muhammad and his kin and bless Abraham and his kin

Al-Salaamu Aleikum; Peace be upon you; Pax Vobiscum

Peace be upon Jesus Christ who says: Peace is upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day I am resurrected (Chapter of Mary; the Holy Qur’an; 19:34).

During these joyful holidays we write to you, our Christian neighbors all over the world, to express our thanks for the beautiful and gracious responses that we Muslims have been receiving from the very first day we issued our invitation to come together to ‘A Common Word’ based on ‘Love of God and Love of Neighbor’ (see www.acommonword.com for the document and the responses).

We thank you and wish you all a joyous and peaceful Christmas Holiday Season commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, may peace be upon him.

We Muslims bear witness that: There is no god but God, without associate, and that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger, and that Jesus is His Servant, His Messenger, His Word cast to Mary, and a Spirit from Him …. (Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Ahadith al-Anbiya’).

We pray, during these blessed days, which have coincided with the Muslim feast of the Hajj or Pilgrimage, which commemorates the faith of the Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him), that the New Year may bring healing and peace to our suffering world. God’s refusal to let Abraham (peace be upon him) sacrifice his son—granting him instead a ram—is to this day a Divine warrant and a most powerful social lesson for all the followers of the Abrahamic faiths, to ever do their utmost to save, uphold and treasure every single human life and especially the life of every single child. Indeed, it is worthy of note that this year Muslim scholars issued a historic declaration affirming the sanctity of human life—of every human life—as an essential and foundational teaching in Islam upon which all Muslim scholars are in unanimous agreement (see details at www.duaatalislam.com). May the coming year be one in which the sanctity and dignity of human life is upheld by all. May it be a year of humble repentance before God, and mutual forgiveness within and between communities.

 Praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds.

The sanctity of human life: God has forbidden the killing of innocents whether
they be Muslim, Christian, or otherwise. All who take life without legitimate
justification commit a major crime and an atrocity before God.


  • May God bless Muhammad and his kin and bless Abraham and his kin.

“Abraham and his kin” includes the Jews,  of whom Allah said “They are the worst of creatures.” ; do the Ulama sincerely bless those whom Moe has cursed or are they unaware of 9:30?

  • Al-Salaamu Aleikum; Peace be upon you; Pax Vobiscum

This greeting contravenes Moe’s explicit command concerning greeting Kufar.

Sahih Muslim   Book 026, Number 5389:

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.

  • Peace be upon Jesus Christ who says: Peace is upon me the day I was born, the day I die, and the day I am resurrected (Chapter of Mary; the Holy Qur’an; 19:34) [Ref. preceding ayeh 33.]
  1. PBUH: why? PBU Moe is explained.
    • 33:56. “Allâh sends His Salât (Graces, Honours, Blessings, Mercy, etc.) on the Prophet (Muhammad ) and also His angels too (ask Allâh to bless and forgive him). O you who believe! Send your Salât on (ask Allâh to bless) him (Muhammad ), and (you should) greet (salute) him with the Islâmic way of greeting (salutation i.e. As­Salâmu ‘Alaikum)” .[TheCommand to Say Salah upon the Propht] Clearly, Moe had some doubt concerning his own salvation and was seeking reinforcement, knowing that he was a sinner. Is there any doubt about  Jesus Christ’s eternal destination?
  2. On what day did Jesus die? 4:157. And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allâh,” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]:
      4:158. But Allâh raised him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allâh is Ever All ­Powerful All  Wise.
  • uphold and treasure every single human life and especially the life of every single child. Indeed, it is worthy of note that this year Muslim scholars issued a historic declaration affirming the sanctity of human life—of every human life—as an essential and foundational teaching in Islam upon which all Muslim scholars are in unanimous agreement

Is that so? Every human life is sacred to Islam, especially the children?  In Sahih Muslim, Muslim Book 019, Number 4294, we read: “do not kill the children”.  But in Book 019, Number 4321 we read: “It is reported on the authority of Sa’b b. Jaththama that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him), when asked about the women and children of the polytheists being killed during the night raid, said: They are from them.”

What is the reason for the injunction and for the exception, if life is sacred? In Sahih Bukhari  Volume 5, Book 59, Number 512 we read:   “Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives.”  Does that give you a hint? What did they do with captives? See 8:67 & 47:4.  What happened to Safiya?  What happened to the adolescent boys of the  Banu Qurayzah tribe?  But all human life is sacred, particularly the children, right?

If all human life is sacred to Islam, why did Moe say: I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.”   Clearly, our lives ain’t sacred to Muslims until we submit to Islam!!

  • The sanctity of human life: God has forbidden the killing of innocents whether
    they be Muslim, Christian, or otherwise. All who take life without legitimate
    justification commit a major crime and an atrocity before God.

Who is innocent? 5:33 establishes the punishment for making mischief against Allah: 5:33. “The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. ”  Who incurs that penalty? Ibn Kathir lets the cat out of the bag in his tafsir of this ayeh: “Wage war’ mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways. Mischief in the land refers to various types of evil. ” You are subject to the penalties imposed by 5:33 for disbelief!!!  If  you do not believe in and obey Allah and his Messenger, you ain’t innocent.  Whenever a Muslim’s lips are moving, his pen is writing or his fingers are on a keyboard, look out for the weasel words!!!

Tolerance Must Be Reciprocal

December 2, 2007

Is Islam tolerant? What did Allah & Muhammad have to say on tolerance & related matters? [Emphasis added.]

3:19. Truly, the religion with Allâh is Islâm. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, then surely, Allâh is Swift in calling to account.

3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. 

3:86. How shall Allâh guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and after they bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad) is true and after clear proofs had come unto them? And Allâh guides not the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers).

3:87. They are those whose recompense is that on them (rests) the Curse of Allâh, of the angels, and of all mankind.

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).

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.

Allah only accepts Islam; where’s the tolerance in that? Judaism & Christianity will never be accepted; Where’s the tolerance in that? If anyone turns away from Islam, the curse of Allah, the angels and all mankind is upon him; where’s the tolerance? Perhaps its in the hadith.   Abasement, humility & destruction are consequences of disbelief. How tolerant!!

Sahih Bukhari   Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:

Narrated ‘Ikrima:

Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

Malik’s Muwatta Book 36, Number 36.18.15

Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “If someone changes his deen – strike his neck!“[…]

Apostates may be killed. That’s Islamic law.

@O8.4 Click this link, search for @O8.4.

There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O: or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die).

Does Allah have any more choice epithets for us?

8:22. Verily! The worst of (moving) living creatures with Allâh are the deaf and the dumb, those who understand not (i.e. the disbelievers).

98:6. Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad  from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.

We are the worst of creatures; destined for Hell fire. Yep, Islam is real tolerant.  Allah added something more.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Is that of any force or effect, or just blowing off steam?

@O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),

Reliance of the Traveler, the all purpose handbook of Islamic Law, told you that the Caliph makes war on Jews & Christians and why. Al-Misri quotes the same verse I quoted for you, he quotes it as the basis of fiqh.  Muhammad added insult to injury.

9:30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

What does Allah say about Muslims?

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).

Muslims are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; exactly what is the meaning of this? Muhammad has the answer!

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.

See how tolerant Islam is? It calls us the worst of living creatures, declares war upon us, curses us and calls for the decapitation of aptostates. Then it calls for Muslims to lead us to Islam with chains on our necks!
Why in Hell should we tolerate that?!

For those recalcitrant morons who require more evidence of Islam’s violent intolerance: links to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir; the titles alone should convince anyone. Read the tafsir and curse Islam.

Islamic law (Sharia) on Jihad from Reliance of
the Traveler
:

O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph
(o-25) makes
war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians
(N: provided
he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if
they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by
paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the
significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining
in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they
become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax
(O: in
accordance
with the word of Allah Most High,

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who
forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not
practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the
Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran
9.29),

the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon
whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be
accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until
Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the
divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail
a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of
Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him
peace),

“I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”

this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be
peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a
follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

O-9.9

The caliph fights all other
peoples until they become Muslim
(O: because they are
not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to
settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the
Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers,
are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they
either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions
to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs,
neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh
Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y-21), 6.48-49) ).

Why? Because that is what Allah commanded and Muhammad exemplified.

“Peace” They Say When There Is No Peace

October 18, 2007

“They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.”
Jer 6:14

Page 15 of the Ulama’s letter contains more deceptions. [Emphasis added.]

Finding common ground between Muslims and Christians is not simply a matter for polite ecumenical dialogue between selected religious leaders. Christianity and Islam are the largest and second largest religions in the world and in history. Christians and Muslims reportedly make up over a third and over a fifth of humanity respectively. Together they make up more than 55% of the world’s population, making the relationship
between these two religious communities the most important factor in contributing to meaningful peace around the world. If Muslims and Christians are not at peace, the world  cannot be at peace. With the terrible weaponry of the modern world; with Muslims and Christians intertwined everywhere as never before, no side can unilaterally win a conflict between more than half of the world’s inhabitants. Thus our common future is at stake. The very survival of the world itself is perhaps at stake. And to those who nevertheless relish conflict and destruction for their own sake or reckon that ultimately they stand to gain through them, we say that our very eternal souls are all also at stake if we fail to sincerely make every effort to make peace and come together in harmony. God says in the Holy Qur’an: Lo! God enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorteth you in order that ye may take heed (Al Nahl, 16:90). Jesus Christ  said: Blessed are the peacemakers ….(Matthew 5:9), and also: For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? (Matthew 16:26).
So let our differences not cause hatred and strife between us. Let us vie with each other only in righteousness and good works. Let us respect each other, be fair, just and kind to another and live in sincere peace, harmony and mutual goodwill.

  • If Muslims and Christians are not at peace, the world cannot be at peace.” What did Allah say about peace between Islam and Christianity?

    9:29 Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. [The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah]

    What did Muhammad say about that?

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

    What does Fiqh (Islamic Law) say about that? (Reliance of the Traveler.)

    O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
    The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
    “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29)…

    Did they not say, on Pages 6 & 7, that they should obey Allah? What did Allah say about suing for peace?

    47:35. So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islâm), while you are having the upper hand. Allâh is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.

    What did  Muhammad say about abandoning Jihad?

    Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

    Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

  • no side can unilaterally win a conflict between more than half of the world’s inhabitants” What happened to their faith; don’t they believe Allah’s promises? What promises? I’ll let Ibn Kathir tell you.
  • And to those who nevertheless relish conflict and destruction for their own sake or reckon that ultimately they stand to gain through them, we say that our very eternal souls are all also at stake if we fail to sincerely make every effort to make peace and come together in harmony.” How can Muslims put their souls at risk?

    2:195. And spend in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd of all kinds, etc.) and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allâh), and do good. Truly, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good-doers).
    (And spend in the cause of Allah and do not throw yourselves into destruction) “This is not about fighting. But about refraining from spending for the sake of Allah, in which case, one will be throwing his self into destruction.”   The Ayah (2:195) includes the order to spend in Allah’s cause, in the various areas and ways that involve obedience and drawing closer to Allah. It especially applies to spending in fighting the enemies and on what strengthens the Muslims against the enemy. Allah states that those who refrain from spending in this regard will face utter and certain demise and destruction, meaning those who acquire this habit.

    Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2506:
    …Thereupon Allah, the Exalted, revealed, “And spend of your substance in the cause of Allah, and make not your hands contribute to (your destruction)”. To put oneself into danger means that we stay in our property and commit ourselves to its improvement, and abandon fighting (i.e. jihad).

  • Jesus Christ  said: Blessed are the peacemakers ….(Matthew 5:9)”  But Allah said:  O Prophet (Muhammad)! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not understand.[8:65] Wasn’t there something about being commanded to fight?
  • For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? (Matthew 16:26).” But Allah said: “They ask you (O Muhammad) about the spoils of war. Say: “The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger.“…[8:1] and “Allâh has promised you abundant spoils that you will capture, and He has hastened for you this, and He has restrained the hands of men from you, that it may be a sign for the believers,…” [48:20] And Muhammad said: “The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.” [Muslim Book 019, Number 4327] and …”while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand…“[Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220]
  • ” So let our differences not cause hatred and strife between us. Let us vie with each other only in righteousness and good works. Let us respect each other, be fair, just and kind to another and live in sincere peace, harmony and mutual goodwill.”
    • The strife is caused by Islam’s accursed doctrines, which sanctify and mandate conquest, terror & genocide.
      • 2:216 Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know.
      • 3:151 We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
      • 8:12 (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.
      • 8:39 And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
      • 8:67 It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
      • 9:29 Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

If the learned scholars of Islam genuinely desire peace, they have only one good option: apostasize and convert. Allah sanctified and mandated war. Allah’s word is final, because it is perfected [5:4, 11:1]  and can’t change [10:64, 30:30, 35:43].  There is no later revelation to abrogate 9:29. Since it was nearly the last to be revealed, it trumps the earlier, more tolerant & peaceful ayat. Muhammad’s Sunnah confirms it as documented above. How can you hope to undo 1384 years of Islamic history? You can’t edit the Qur’an, and  the resulting Fiqh is well established.

Will the Ulama now consult together, and in unison, rule the ayat which sanctify, mandate & promote Barbarism to be the work of Shaytan, not Allah and order them stricken & expunged and along with them, the interdependent Sunnah & Fiqh?  And if they will, will the Ummah al Islamiyya accept and enforce their ruling?

Or will peace come only when the last Muslim joins Muhammad in the Hellfire? The choice is yours, not ours, for only the aggressor can make real and lasting peace without requiring the extermination of the aggressor. Will you put away forever the weapons of war; forge your swords into plow shares and hitch up your oxen? If you will not abandon Jihad and the damnable doctrines which perpetuate it, you will leave the civilized world no choice but to usher you into the fire.

The Devil is in the Details

October 17, 2007

On Page 15 of the Ulama’s letter to Christianity, we find this:

Finally, as Muslims, and in obedience to the Holy Qur’an, we ask Christians to come together with us on the common essentials of our two religions … that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside God … (Aal ‘Imran, 3:64).
Let this common ground be the basis of all future interfaith dialogue between us, for our common ground is that on which hangs all the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 22:40). God says in the Holy Qur’an:
Say (O Muslims): We believe in God and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes, and that which Moses and Jesus received, and that which the prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. / And if they believe in the like of that which ye believe, then are they rightly guided. But if they turn away, then are they in schism, and God will suffice thee against them. He is the Hearer, the Knower. (Al-Baqarah, 2:136-137)

They preach to us about Common essentials;  and immediately demand that we profane Jesus Christ. Islam denies his deity, crucifixion, death and resurrection.  It is Christians who must abandon their faith; Islam does not compromise!

The next to last sentence of the quote from al-Baqarah conceals more than it reveals. “But  if they turn away , then are they in schism, and God will suffice thee against them. He is the Hearer, the Knower.”

  1. if they turn away” is a common expression in the Qur’an. How is it used? As a pretext for war.

    Turn now to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir.  Good News for the Believers of Eternal Delight

    (73. O Prophet! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, — and worst indeed is that destination.) (74. They swear by Allah that they said nothing (bad), but really they said the word of disbelief, and they disbelieved after accepting Islam, and they resolved that (plot) which they were unable to carry out, and they could not find any cause to do so except that Allah and His Messenger had enriched them of His bounty. If then they repent, it will be better for them, but if they turn away; Allah will punish them with a painful torment in this worldly life and in the Hereafter. And there is none for them on earth as a protector or a helper.)

    Threatening the Disbelievers with Torment in This Life and the Hereafter

    (And I will make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve till the Day of Resurrection. Then you will return to Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which you used to dispute. As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.)

    This is what Allah did to the Jews who disbelieved in `Isa and the Christians who went to the extreme over him. Allah tormented them in this life; they were killed, captured, and lost their wealth and kingdoms. Their torment in the Hereafter is even worse and more severe, …  ) (62. Verily, this is the true narrative, and there is no god except Allah. And indeed, Allah is the Almighty, the All-Wise.) (63. And if they turn away, then surely, Allah is All-Aware of those who do mischief.)

  2. God will suffice thee against them

Turn now to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir.
Encouraging Believers to fight in Jihad; the Good News that a Few Muslims can overcome a Superior Enemy Force

Allah encourages His Prophet and the believers to fight and struggle against the enemy, and wage war against their forces. Allah affirms that He will suffice, aid, support, and help the believers against their enemies, even if their enemies are numerous and have sufficient supplies, while the believers are few. Allah said,

﴿يَـأَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ حَرِّضِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَلَى الْقِتَالِ﴾

(O Prophet! Urge the believers to fight), encouraged and called them to fight. The Messenger of Allah used to encourage the Companions to fight when they faced the enemy. On the day of Badr when the idolators came with their forces and supplies, he said to his Companions,

«قُومُوا إِلَى جَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا السَّمَوَاتُ وَالْأَرْض»

(Get ready and march forth towards a Paradise as wide as the heavens and earth.)

`Umayr bin Al-Humam said, “As wide as the heavens and earth” The Messenger said,

«نَعَم»

(Yes) `Umayr said, “Excellent! Excellent!” The Messenger asked him,

«مَا يَحْمِلُكَ عَلَى قَوْلِكَ: بَخٍ بَخ»

(What makes you say, `Excellent! Excellent!’) He said, “The hope that I might be one of its dwellers.” The Prophet said,

«فَإِنَّكَ مِنْ أَهْلِهَا»

(You are one of its people.) Umayr went ahead, broke the scabbard of his sword, took some dates and started eating from them. He then threw the dates from his hand, saying, “Verily, if I lived until I finished eating these dates, then it is indeed a long life.” He went ahead, fought and was killed, may Allah be pleased with him.

Allah said next, commanding the believers and conveying good news to them,

﴿إِن يَكُن مِّنكُمْ عِشْرُونَ صَـبِرُونَ يَغْلِبُواْ مِاْئَتَيْنِ وَإِن يَكُنْ مُّنكُمْ مِّاْئَةٌ يَغْلِبُواْ أَلْفًا مِّنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ﴾

(If there are twenty steadfast persons among you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons, they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve.)

Allah provides, suffices, and makes a Way out of Every Hardship for Those Who have Taqwa

Far from being an offer of peace, the letter is a demand for surrender.  While it is more subtle than Muhammad’s extortion letters, it is no less threatening.

Islamic Antagonism to Christianity

October 17, 2007

Page 15 of the Ulama’s letter raises the antagonism again in this quote; note the sentence I have highlighted.

Is Christianity necessarily against Muslims? In the Gospel Jesus Christ  says: He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters abroad. (Matthew 12:30)
For he who is not against us is on our side. (Mark 9:40) … for he who is not against us is on our side. (Luke 9:50) According to the Blessed Theophylact’sxxiii Explanation of the New Testament, these statements are not contradictions because the first statement (in the actual Greek text of the New Testament) refers to demons, whereas the second and third statements refer to people who recognised Jesus, but were not Christians. Muslims recognize Jesus Christ as the Messiah, not in the same way Christians do (but Christians themselves anyway have never all agreed with each other on Jesus Christ’s  nature), but in the following way: …. the Messiah Jesus son of Mary is a Messenger of God and His Word which he cast unto Mary and a Spirit from Him…. (Al-Nisa’, 4:171). We therefore invite Christians to consider Muslims not against and thus with them, in accordance with Jesus Christ’s  words here.

To anyone familiar with Islamic doctrine, that sentence is an obvious deception.  What does Allah say about Jesus & his disciples?

  • 2:87 …We gave ‘Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]….
  • 2:136. Say (O Muslims), “We believe in Allâh and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Ibrâhim (Abraham), Ismâ’il (Ishmael), Ishâque (Isaac), Ya’qûb (Jacob), and to Al-Asbât [the twelve sons of Ya’qûb (Jacob)], and that which has been given to Mûsa (Moses) and ‘Iesa (Jesus), and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islâm).”
  • 2:253 …and to ‘Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), We gave clear proofs and evidences, and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]. If Allâh had willed, succeeding generations would not have fought against each other, after clear Verses of Allâh had come to them, but they differed – some of them believed and others disbelieved. If Allâh had willed, they would not have fought against one another, but Allâh does what He likes.

According to the Qur’an, Allah gave Jesus signs and support And  Muslims believe what was given to Jesus.  Wars coming after Christ’s time were Allah’s will; would have been prevented by unanimity of belief..

  • 3:39 …”Allâh gives you glad tidings of Yahya (John), confirming (believing in) the Word from Allâh [i.e. the creation of ‘Iesa (Jesus), the Word from Allâh (“Be!” – and he was!)], noble, keeping away from sexual relations with women, a Prophet, from among the righteous.”

Sexual abstinence afforded Jesus nobility & righteousness.  How then is Muhammad, a rapist, with multiple wives, one of them married at age six and consummated at nine superior to Jesus?

  • 3:45 …”O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allâh gives you the glad tidings of a Word [“Be!” – and he was! i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary)] from Him, his name will be the Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), held in honour in this world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allâh.”

    3:46. “He will speak to the people in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous.”

  • 3:48. And He (Allâh) will teach him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] the Book and Al-Hikmah (i.e. the Sunnah, the faultless speech of the Prophets, wisdom, etc.), (and) the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).

    3:49. And will make him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] a Messenger to the Children of Israel (saying): “I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I design for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allâh’s Leave; and I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I bring the dead to life by Allâh’s Leave. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Surely, therein is a sign for you, if you believe.

    3:50. And I have come confirming that which was before me of the Taurât (Torah), and to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a proof from your Lord. So fear Allâh and obey me.

    3:51. Truly! Allâh is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him (Alone). This is the Straight Path.

    3:52. Then when ‘Iesa (Jesus) came to know of their disbelief, he said: “Who will be my helpers in Allâh’s Cause?” Al-Hawâriûn (the disciples) said: “We are the helpers of Allâh; we believe in Allâh, and bear witness that we are Muslims (i.e. we submit to Allâh).”

  • 3:55. And (remember) when Allâh said: “O ‘Iesa (Jesus)! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you [of the forged statement that ‘Iesa (Jesus) is Allâh’s son] of those who disbelieve, and I will make those who follow you (Monotheists, who worship none but Allâh) superior to those who disbelieve [in the Oneness of Allâh, or disbelieve in some of His Messengers, e.g. Muhammad , ‘Iesa (Jesus), Mûsa (Moses), etc., or in His Holy Books, e.g. the Taurât (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), the Qur’ân] till the Day of Resurrection. Then you will return to Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which you used to dispute.”

    3:56. “As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.”

Punishment in this world? How would that be administered? By military might, of course; that is Muhammad’s role.

  • 3:59 Verily, the likeness of ‘Iesa (Jesus) before Allâh is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: “Be!” – and he was.
  • 3:61. Then whoever disputes with you concerning him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allâh, and having no share in Divinity) say: (O Muhammad ) “Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves – then we pray and invoke (sincerely) the Curse of Allâh upon those who lie.”

Allah commands Muhammad to invite the Christians to a cursing contest.  Allah suggests a negative confession of faith. What was it Christ taught about taking oaths?  Why is Allah contravening what he taught Jesus?

  • 3:63. And if they turn away (and do not accept these true proofs and evidences), then surely, Allâh is All-Aware of those who do mischief.

Turning away refers to rejecting Islam. Mischief is  punishable by death, crucifixion or amputation of hand and foot on opposite sides. Mischief includes simple disbelief. See To The Ulama: Hell NO!!!!!!!   for the details.

  • 3:64. Say (O Muhammad ): “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allâh, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allâh. Then, if they turn away, say: “Bear witness that we are Muslims.”

This ayeh has been dissected in To The Ulama: Hell NO!!!!!!!.

  • 3:65. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Why do you dispute about Ibrâhim (Abraham), while the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) were not revealed till after him? Have you then no sense?

A clear and obvious insult from Allah: calling us senseless.

  • 3:69. A party of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) wish to lead you astray. But they shall not lead astray anyone except themselves, and they perceive not.

    3:70. O people of the Scripture! (Jews and Christians): “Why do you disbelieve in the Ayât of Allâh, [the Verses about Prophet Muhammad  present in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] while you (yourselves) bear witness (to their truth).”

Another insult: imputing cognitive dissonance.

  • 3:71. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): “Why do you mix truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know?”

    3:72. And a party of the people of the Scripture say: “Believe in the morning in that which is revealed to the believers (Muslims), and reject it at the end of the day, so that they may turn back.

Allah calls us liars and hypocrites.

  • 3:75. Among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is he who, if entrusted with a Cantar (a great amount of wealth, etc.), will readily pay it back; and among them there is he who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay it unless you constantly stand demanding, because they say: “There is no blame on us to betray and take the properties of the illiterates (Arabs).” But they tell a lie against Allâh while they know it.

Allah calls us frauds & blasphemers.

  • 3:98. Say: “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Why do you reject the Ayât of Allâh (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) while Allâh is Witness to what you do?”

    3:99. Say: “O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Why do you stop those who have believed, from the Path of Allâh, seeking to make it seem crooked, while you (yourselves) are witnesses [to Muhammad  as a Messenger of Allâh and Islâm (Allâh’s Religion, i.e. to worship none but Him Alone)]? And Allâh is not unaware of what you do.”

We are witnesses of Jesus Christ, not Allah.  Allah is an ancient Arabian idol, not God.

  • 3:110 …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.

These ayat are dissected in Islam: Not Against Us ?.

  • 4:157. And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allâh,” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]:

    4:158. But Allâh raised him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allâh is Ever All­Powerful, All­Wise.

    4:159. And there is none of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), but must believe in him [‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), as only a Messenger of Allâh and a human being], before his [‘Iesa (Jesus) or a Jew’s or a Christian’s] death (at the time of the appearance of the angel of death). And on the Day of Resurrection, he [‘Iesa (Jesus)] will be a witness against them.

Jesus was not crucified, killed nor resurrected. Yeah, right.

  • 4:171. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allâh aught but the truth. The Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), was (no more than) a Messenger of Allâh and His Word, (“Be!” – and he was) which He bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (Rûh) created by Him; so believe in Allâh and His Messengers. Say not: “Three (trinity)!” Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allâh is (the only) One Ilâh (God), Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allâh is All­Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs

How does Allah dispose of affairs? He sends Muhammad with his army!

  •  5:46. And in their footsteps, We sent ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) , confirming the Taurât (Torah) that had come before him, and We gave him the Injeel (Gospel), in which was guidance and light and confirmation of the Taurât (Torah) that had come before it, a guidance and an admonition for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).

    5:47. Let the people of the Injeel (Gospel) judge by what Allâh has revealed therein. And whosoever does not judge by what Allâh has revealed (then) such (people) are the Fâsiqûn (the rebellious i.e. disobedient (of a lesser degree) to Allâh.

The Qur’an contravenes the Gospel, it does not confirm the Gospel.  5:47 labels us mischief makers, 5:33 informs us how those who make mischief should be punished.

  • 5:110. (Remember) when Allâh will say (on the Day of Resurrection). “O ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Remember My Favour to you and to your mother when I supported you with Rûh­ul­Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)] so that you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and when I taught you writing, Al­Hikmah (the power of understanding), the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel); and when you made out of the clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My Permission, and you breathed into it, and it became a bird by My Permission, and you healed those born blind, and the lepers by My Permission, and when you brought forth the dead by My Permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from you (when they resolved to kill you) since you came unto them with clear proofs, and the disbelievers among them said: ‘This is nothing but evident magic.’ ”

    5:111. And when I (Allâh) put in the hearts of Al-Hawârîeen (the disciples) [of ‘Iesa (Jesus)] to believe in Me and My Messenger, they said: “We believe. And bear witness that we are Muslims.”

Show us where that malarkey is in the Holy Bible!!!

  • 5:112. (Remember) when Al-Hawârîûn (the disciples) said: “O ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Can your Lord send down to us a table spread (with food) from heaven?” ‘Iesa (Jesus) said: “Fear Allâh, if you are indeed believers.”

    5:113. They said: “We wish to eat thereof and to be stronger in Faith, and to know that you have indeed told us the truth and that we ourselves be its witnesses.”

    5:114. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: “O Allâh, our Lord! Send us from heaven a table spread (with food) that there may be for us – for the first and the last of us – a festival and a sign from You; and provide us sustenance, for You are the Best of sustainers.”

    5:115. Allâh said: “I am going to send it down unto you, but if any of you after that disbelieves, then I will punish him with a torment such as I have not inflicted on anyone among (all) the ‘Alamîn (mankind and jinns).”

    5:116. And (remember) when Allâh will say (on the Day of Resurrection): “O ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Did you say unto men: ‘Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allâh?’ ” He will say: “Glory be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner­self though I do not know what is in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the All­Knower of all that is hidden and unseen.

Clearly Muhammad was insane; he claimed to remember what had not yet come to pass.

  • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    9:30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

    9:31. They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allâh (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allâh), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilâh (God – Allâh) Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) . Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him).”

    9:32. They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allâh’s Light (with which Muhammad  has been sent – Islâmic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allâh will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kâfirûn (disbelievers) hate (it).

    9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).

9:29 commands Muslims to make war on us, conquer us and force us to submit to extortion. 9:30 curses us. The next to ayat are supporting pretext. 9:33 declares that Islam must be made superior: it must dominate the world. 9:29 tells us how that is to be done.   Can we know this and believe that Islam is not inimical to us? Can we be aware of these facts and not condemn Islam?

  • 19:30. “He [‘Iesa (Jesus)] said: Verily! I am a slave of Allâh, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet;”

    19:31. “And He has made me blessed wheresoever I be, and has enjoined on me Salât (prayer), and Zakât, as long as I live.”

    19:32. “And dutiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant, unblest.

    19:33. “And Salâm (peace) be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!”

    19:34. Such is ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). (it is) a statement of truth, about which they doubt (or dispute).
    19:35. It befits not (the Majesty of) Allâh that He should beget a son [this refers to the slander of Christians against Allâh, by saying that ‘Iesa (Jesus) is the son of Allâh]. Glorified (and Exalted be He above all that they associate with Him). When He decrees a thing, He only says to it, “Be!” and it is.

    19:36. [‘Iesa (Jesus) said]: “And verily Allâh is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (Alone). That is the Straight Path. (Allâh’s Religion of Islâmic Monotheism which He did ordain for all of His Prophets).” [Tafsir At-Tabarî]

    19:37. Then the sects differed [i.e. the Christians about ‘Iesa (Jesus)], so woe unto the disbelievers [those who gave false witness by saying that ‘Iesa (Jesus) is the son of Allâh] from the meeting of a great Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection, when they will be thrown in the blazing Fire).

    19:38. How clearly will they (polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) see and hear, the Day when they will appear before Us! But the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers) today are in plain error.

    19:39. And warn them (O Muhammad ) of the Day of grief and regrets, when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness, and they believe not.

    19:40. Verily! We will inherit the earth and whatsoever is thereon. And to Us they all shall be returned,

Muslims will inherit the earth!! Do you have a clue what that means? The meek?  Then you are indeed a damned fool!  Muhammad claimed ownership of the entire earth. Muhammad claimed ownership of all the world’s treasure. Allah terrorized a Jewish settlement and caused Muhammad to “inherit” their property.  It means that Muslims intend to conquer and dispossess all non-Muslims!!! And they claim they ain’t our enemy. Yeah, right.

  • 61:6.  And (remember) when ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: “O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allâh unto you confirming the Taurât [(Torah) which came] before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed . But when he (Ahmed i.e. Muhammad ) came to them with clear proofs, they said: “This is plain magic.”

    61:7. And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allâh, while he is being invited to Islâm? And Allâh guides not the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk.

    61:8. They intend to put out the Light of Allâh (i.e. the religion of Islâm, this Qur’ân, and Prophet Muhammad ) with their mouths. But Allâh will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it).

    61:9. He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâmic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh and in His Messenger Muhammed ) hate (it).

    61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

    61:11.  That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

    61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity [‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.

    61:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad ) to the believers.

    61:14. O you who believe! Be you helpers (in the Cause) of Allâh as said ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), to Al­Hawârîûn (the disciples): “Who are my helpers (in the Cause) of Allâh?” Al­Hawârîeen (the disciples) said: “We are Allâh’s helpers” (i.e. we will strive in His Cause!). Then a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved. So We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the uppermost.

61:10 is directly related to 9:111, go now and read it!  61:11 contains a key phrase: “strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives”. Lets view the context.

  • 4:74. Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allâh, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allâh, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.
  • 4:76. Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allâh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tâghût (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitân (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitân (Satan).
  • 4:95. Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with their wealth and their lives. Allâh has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allâh has promised good (Paradise), but Allâh has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward;
  • 9:19. Do you consider the providing of drinking water to the pilgrims and the maintenance of Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah) as equal to the worth of those who believe in Allâh and the Last Day, and strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh? They are not equal before Allâh. And Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers.
  • 9:41. March forth, whether you are light (being healthy, young and wealthy) or heavy (being ill, old and poor), strive hard with your wealth and your lives in the Cause of Allâh. This is better for you, if you but knew.

Allah sent Muhammad to make Islam victorious over Christianity and if a Muslim wants to avoid Hellfire he’ll strive hard against us with his wealth and his life.  The other ayat using those expressions make the meaning crystal clear.

61:12-13 promise great rewards to those who join the Jihad: victory in the present and the celestial bordello in the next world.
61:14 claims that Jesus led an army in battle. Where in the Gospels & Acts is that reported??

Allah and his messenger insult Jesus and his disciples. Allah and his messenger declared and are prosecuting war against us. And they want us to believe that they are not our enemies!

Islam: Not Agaisnt Us?

October 16, 2007

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.
