Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Its Islam, Stupid.


In a Washington Post article about Islamic criticism of anti-terrorism training, Jeff Stein quotes Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser.  These quotes have been culled out of context.

But “to indict a whole system for using some people who hate or fear Islam,” he said, was “wrong.”

“It’s not a systematic problem,”

“equate political Islam and sharia with Islam itself.”“If they see Islam itself as the problem, then the [training] strategy is dead in the water….It doesn’t present any type of solution.”.

Indicting Islam as a system

To Dr. Jasser, Islam is a personal belief system; a non political religion. To Islam’s founder, it was a way of life, encompassing the entire range of human events. Moe dictated and exemplified everything for his followers, right down to how to urinate & defecate. Moe’s decision is law, in the context of this ayeh, it is matters of matrimony, but the rule extends to all issues he might decide. [Emphasis added.]

  • 33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.

 

disobeys Allâh and His Messenger

Moe said something very instructive about this.

What command did disbelievers disobey?  The command to submit to Islam! One of Moe’s many extortion letters has a clue for you.

  • […]It is better for you, either to accept Islam or agree to pay Jiziya and consent to remain obedient to Allah, His prophet and his messengers. […] If you do not accept these terms and set them aside, I do not need your presents and gifts. In that case, I shall have to wage war (to establish peace and security). Its result would be that the big ones shall be killed in war and the commoners shall be taken prisoners. […] [LETTER TO THE CHIEFS OF AQABA]

 

terrorism: systematic problem

How can anyone deny that Allah’s revelations and Moe’s sunnah are  part of Islam?

  • 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.”
  • 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.
  • 8:60. And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.
    • Alternative expressions from other translators:
      • that thereby ye may dismay the enemy
      • to strike terror
      • to frighten thereby the enemy
      • to terrify thereby the enemy
      • to make the enemies of God… in dread thereof
      • whereby ye may strike terror into the enemy
      • whereby ye may strike a terror into the enemy.
  • 33:26. 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.

    33:27. 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.

  • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
  • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).
    • Alternative expressions from other translators:
      • because of the terror in their hearts
      • greater in being feared in their hearts
      • greater fear of you in their hearts
      • you strike more terror in their hearts
      • arouse greater fear in their hearts
      • a keener source of fear in their hearts
      • the fear of you is more intense in their hearts
      • by reason of the terror [cast] into their breasts from God

Allah said that he would cast terror and that he did cast terror so that two Jewish settlements were destroyed and the inhabitants enslaved and dispossessed. How can anyone deny the obvious fact that terrorism is sanctified by the Qur’an?  Examine what Moe said about it.

  • Sahih 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. […]
  • 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),[…]

How did Allah make Moe victorious?  What does that make Moe?  What does that make Muslims?

  • 33:21. Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much.

How do you emulate a terrorist without becoming a terrorist?  What sort of person has a terrorist as his role model?  And how did Allah cast terror?  This quote comes from page 28 of Volume 8 of Tabari’s history: The Victory of Islam. 1

Before reaching the Banu Qurayzah, the Messenger of God
passed his companions at al-$awran. “Has anyone passed you? ”
he asked. ”Yes, . Messenger of God,” they replied. “Dihyah b.
Khalifah al-Kalbilgi passed us on a white mule with a brocade-
covered saddle.” The Messenger of God said, ”That was Gabriel,
sent to the Banu Qurayzah to shake their fortresses and cast terror
into their hearts.”

This quote comes from page 368 of Ishaq’s Sira. 2

Our attack upon God’s enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina
who did not fear for his life.

This quote comes from page 461 of the Sira.

The apostle besieged them for twenty-five nights until they were sore pressed and God cast terror into their hearts.

Allah’s word is law to be obeyed.  Moe’s sunnah is an example to be emulated.  It is obvious that terrorism is a foundational part of Islam.  Muslims terrorized people by invading, killing, plundering and enslaving with great brutality.

equate political Islam and

sharia with Islam itself

How can anyone claim that Islam is apolitical?  Moe established himself as a warlord in Medina. He consolidated ‘spiritual’ & temporal power in his own hands. Islam demands the imposition of sharia, which is based on the Qur’an & sunnah.   Dr. Jasser wants to do something which is implicitly  condemned: to cherry pick Islam.

  • 13:36. Those to whom We have given the Book (such as ‘Abdullâh bin Salâm and other Jews who embraced Islâm), rejoice at what has been revealed unto you (i.e. the Qur’ân) , but there are among the Confederates (from the Jews and pagans) those who reject a part thereof. Say (O Muhammad ): “I am commanded only to worship Allâh (Alone) and not to join partners with Him. To Him (Alone) I call and to Him is my return.”
  • 13:37. And thus have We sent it (the Qur’ân) down to be a judgement of authority in Arabic. Were you (O Muhammad ) to follow their (vain) desires after the knowledge which has come to you, then you will not have any Walî (protector) or defender against Allâh.
  • 2:85. After this, it is you who kill one another and drive out a party of you from their homes, assist (their enemies) against them, in sin and transgression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although their expulsion was forbidden to you. Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allâh is not unaware of what you do.

Islam itself as the problem

What did the terrorists say when they slit the throats of the flight crews?  What do Muslims say when they slit a goat’s throat for eid?  What motivates terrorists?

A search of the Noble Quran translated by Hilali & khan returns:

  • reward: 63
  • gardens 53
  • success: 37

Here is one example for your enlightenment.

  • 3:195. So their Lord accepted of them (their supplication and answered them), “Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female. You are (members) one of another, so those who emigrated and were driven out from their homes, and suffered harm in My Cause, and who fought, and were killed (in My Cause), verily, I will remit from them their evil deeds and admit them into Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise); a reward from Allâh, and with Allâh is the best of rewards.”

The relationship between Allah and the Muslims is central to the problem.

  • 9:111. 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 .

Master: slave; they do Allah’s wet work, killing his enemies. What if they don’t?

  • 9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

    9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.

There are 41 instances of “painful torment” in the Noble Qur’an.  Muslims get their ticket to Paradise by jihad, and are damned if they don’t.  That is the root of the problem. Terrorism: what Islam is; what Muslims do.
