Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Good Muslims Know

An email from a Gold Star Mother. I have added a hyperlink to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir so that you can verify the quoted text.

Ben, real quick here: the reason why I state what good Muslims know, and that is, the Sira is an indispensable part of Islam, because it is a major part of what comprises the sunnah, is also seen throughout ibn Kathir’s tafsir.

Consider the value and respect rendered to ibn Kathir. Then, take note, how often he works off of the report of none other than “Muhammad, son of Ishaq son of Yasar.”

Ibn Ishaq was “born in Medina, about A.H 85. . . . His grandfather Yasar fell into the hands of Khalid b al-Walid.” He was amongst the prisoners Kalid sent to Abu Bakr in Medinah. There, his son, Ishaq, ibn Ishaq’s dad, was born about the year 50.

Hence, the respect for ibn Ishaq as a reliable transmitter. And Tabari works off of ibn Ishaq’s work.

The difference between knowing the prophet and his companions and knowing of them is in knowing of what is in the pages of the sira and digesting that or not knowing of them. Once you get into them, you will only state the same.


Threatening the Jews With Defeat and Encouraging Them to Learn a Lesson From the Battle of Badr

Muhammad bin Ishaq bin Yasar recorded that `Asim bin `Umar bin Qatadah said that when the Messenger of Allah gained victory in the battle of Badr and went back to Al-Madinah, he gathered the Jews in the marketplace of Bani Qaynuqa`.

Therefore, Allah said,

﴿قَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ ءَايَةٌ﴾

(There has already been a sign for you) meaning, O Jews, who said what you said! You have an Ayah, meaning proof, that Allah will make His religion prevail, award victory to His Messenger, make His Word apparent and His religion the highest.

﴿فِي فِئَتَيْنِ﴾

Allah will make his religion prevail, award victory & make Islam superior. That ayeh is 3:13 . It lays bare Islam’s supremacism & triumphalism. Go now, and read that Tafsir. See what Allah said to the Jews; see what Muhammad did to them!

Questions for Fred Thompson

The following quote was found at

  • A key adviser said the two biggest issues motivating Thompson are “Islamic radicalism and the threat of terrorism reaching our shores,” and a sense that “politics has broken down in the domestic arena, too.”

One phrase in that quote bothers me: Islamic radicalismAre you merely careless with the language or  ignorant of Islam? The term implies that Islamic terrorism is a deviation from the orthodox standard of Islam. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Here is the standard of Islam; what Allah & Muhammad said and did:

  1. 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).[The Prohibition of Obeying the Disbelievers; the Cause of Defeat at Uhud]
  2. 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.“[Allah commands the Angels to fight and support the Believers]
  3. 33:26-27 And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things. [Allah drove back the Confederates disappointed and lost] [The Campaign against Banu Qurayzah]
  4. Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
    Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
    1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
    2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
    3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
    4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
    5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
  5. 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), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” …

There you have Allah’s words, from the Hilali & Khan translation of the Qur’an. I have hyperlinked the Surah:Ayat numbers to the source for easy verification and access to the entire document.  Bracketed references are to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, which explains the meaning of the ayat.  Muhammad’s words come from Khan’s translation of Sahih Bukhari, the most accepted & trusted hadith collection.


  1. Do you understand this: “We shall cast terror”…”I will cast terror”…”Allah cast terror”…”Allah made me victorious by awe”…I have been made victorious by terror” ?
  2. Then has Islam been hijacked, distorted or perverted as President Bush claims?
  3. Then is not terrorism an intrinsic sacrament of Islam?
  4. Then will you abjure the use of distracting & deceptive adjectives when discussing Islam?

Those are the minimum requirements for receiving my vote, both in the primary and the general election. Those who fail the fourth test will not get my vote.
