Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Search Pains

Bloggers enjoy seeing search engine referrals, but yesterday, I found a disturbing one. What You Need To Know About Islam received three page views from two search engine results.  The first search, repeated once, is not a problem; it indicates timely curiosity.

  • any one want know about islam
  • i am new to islam what all i should know

The second query gives me a pain. It indicates that someone sold his or her soul to Satan without first reading the sales contract with its codicils.  My guess is that the seeker did not find what he or she was looking for in that post.  It contains information that should stop any moral person from making the sale.

The recent ‘revert’ to Islam will probably want to know the basics of the salat schedules, postures, gestures & compulsory prayers, zakat, fitra & other arcana that require significant research to uncover. The Resources post would be more useful to that reader because it presents links to several large Islamic libraries where that sort of practical information can be found.

In this case, cliches such as “look before you leap” and “investigate before you invest”  come to mind.  Anyone who is toying with the idea of ‘reverting’ to Islam should read its canonical texts before reciting Shahada.  The Qur’an and Sahih Bukhari should be required reading for anyone who might be tempted by the “simplicity”, “certainty” & ‘beauty” of Islam.

Islam is a one way street, you can get in but you can’t get out. Apostates are executed where Allah’s writ runs.  Satan’s recruiters are unlikely to tell prospects about that,  the requirement of circumcision and the fard al-kifaya of jihad.
Women and girls who are exposed to Muslims in the work place or college should read  Islamic Misogyny now, while it can do them some good.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

  1. Islam is a one way street, you can get in but you can’t get out. Apostates are executed where Allah’s writ runs. Satan’s recruiters are unlikely to tell prospects about that, the requirement of circumcision and the fard al-kifaya of jihad.

    Not true. Please go through the following Post.

    • 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.'”


      4:89. They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allâh (to Muhammad ). But if they turn back (from Islâm), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them.

      Reliance of the Traveller is the handbook of Shafi’ite Fiqh. Book o, Chapter 8 sets forth the law of apostasy. o8.1 & 8.2 inform us that the penalty is execution. Reliance 08.1 Scroll down to 8.7 for a list of 20 ‘acts entailing’ apostasy .

      • I will research on the Hadith and then let you know what it really was about.

        You quoted Qura’an, let me quote from the same Holy Qura’an.

        Surely those who turn their backs [artaddu] after guidance has become manifest to them, Satan has seduced them, and holds out false hopes to them. That is because they said to those who hate what Allah has revealed, ‘We will obey you in some matters’ and Allah knows their secrets. (47:26–27)

        then again

        They swear by Allah that they said nothing, but they did say the word of disbelief and did disbelieve after they had embraced Islam… So if they repent, it will be better for them, but if they turn away, Allah will punish them with a grievous punishment in this world and the hereafter. And they shall have neither friend nor helper in the earth. (9.74)

        then again

        Those who believe, then disbelieve, then again believe, then disbelieve, and then increase in disbelief, Allah will never forgive them nor will He guide them to the way.

        The matter is with God in the afterlife.

      • The following comes from Tabari Vol. VIII: “The Victory of Islam”, pg. 178.
        “The Messenger of God ordered that he
        should be killed only because he had become a Muslim and then
        had reverted to being a polytheist.

        He fled to ‘Uthman, who was his foster-brother,739 and ‘Uthman hid him. ‘Uthman later
        brought him to the Messenger of God after the people of Mecca
        had become calm. He asked the Messenger of God to grant him a
        promise of safety. The Messenger of God is said to have remained [I 640J
        silent for a long time and then to have said yes. After ‘Uthman had
        taken him away, the Messenger of God said to his companions
        who were around him, “By God, I kept silent so that one of you
        might go up to him and cut off his head!” One of the An~ar said,
        “Why didn’t you give me a signal, Messenger of God?” He replied,
        “A prophet does not kill by making signs.””

        After the conquest of Mecca, Moe had a list of people who were to be killed. Lu’ayy was one of them ‘cuz he had reverted.
