Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Innocence of Muslims Update: CAIR Wants You to Know Moe: Free DVD


 

I learn from God Discussion, that the St. Louis chapter of CAIR
has put up a billboard offering a dvd containing the PBS hagiography of
Moe: Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet.”. The billboard offers two methods of
contacting CAIR to ask questions about Moe or to order the dvd:
(636)
686-0650 and an email legacy@cair-stlouis.com
.  This is CAIR’s response to The Innocence of
Muslims.
If you have not seen that trailer, view it now before
reading and viewing further. For documentation of the trailer’s
conceptual content, see this blog post:

The billboard advertises a web address: http://www.knowthelegacy.com/ . It also offers a
single sentence about Moe: “The man
who came in peace
.”.

Lets examine the veracity of that description.  Tafsir Ibn
Kathir  quotes three hadith, two of which are relevant to this
issue.

(I was sent with the sword
just before the Last Hour, so that Allah is worshipped alone

without partners. My sustenance was provided for me from under the
shadow of my spear. Those who oppose my command were humiliated and
made inferior, and whoever imitates a people, he is one of them.)

When
a man says that he was “sent with the sword”, I have doubts about his
passivity.  When he says that his income came from his spear and
those who oppose him were humiliated, the doubt increases in intensity.
But there is more.

Volume 1, Parts 1.25.7

He (lbn Sa`d) said: `Abd Allah Ibn Numayr informed us on the authority
of Malik i.

e. Ibn Mighwal, he on the authority of Abu Husayn, he on the authority
of Mujahid,

he on the authority of the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him; he
said:

I am Muhammad and Ahmad, I am Rasul al-Rahmah, I am Rasul al-Malhamah, I

am al-Muqaffi and a1-Hashir; I have been
raised for Jihad and I am not raised for



tillage.

Moe said that he was “raised for Jihad“,
notfor tillage“. What is
Jihad; is it peaceful? How are Jihad and agriculture alternatives? Lets
tackle the first question with a translator’s footnote to Surah
Al-Baqarah 2:190 which defines the word.

(V.2:190) Al-Jihâd (holy fighting) in Allâh’s Cause
(with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost
importance in Islâm
and is one of its pillar (on which it
stands). By 
Jihâd Islâm is established, Allâh’s
Word is made superior, (His Word being 

ilaha illallâh 
which
means none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh), and His Religion (Islâm) is propagated.
By abandoning 
Jihâd (may
Allâh protect us from that) Islâm
is destroyed
and the Muslims fall into an inferior position;
their honour is lost, their
lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish
Jihâd is an obligatory duty in Islâm on
every Muslim,

and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost
heart wish to fulfil this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a
hypocrite.


Narrated
‘Abdullâh bin Mas‘ûd رضي الله عنه: I asked Allâh’s Messenger صلى الله
عليه وسلم “O Allâh’s Messenger! What is the best deed?” He replied, “To
offer the 
Salât (prayers)
at their early fixed stated times.” I asked, “What is next in
goodness?” He replied, “To be good and dutiful to your parents.” I
further asked, “What is next in
goodness?” He replied, “To participate in Jihâd in Allâh’s Cause.

I did not ask Allâh’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم anymore and if I had
asked him more, he would have told me more. (
Sahih
Al-Bukhâri
,
Vol.4, 
Hadîth No.41).

According to the translators, Jihad is “holy fighting” , of the utmost
importance, a pillar of Islam  that establishes and propagates
Islam. If Jihad is abandoned, Muslims lose their temporal power.
But what is the legal definition?

Chapter O9.0: Jihad

(O:Jihad means to
war against non-Muslims
,
and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare
to establish the religion.
And it is the lesser jihad. As for
the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self
(nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)
said as he was returning from jihad.

“We have returned from the lesser jihad to the
greater jihad.”

The scriptural
basis for jihad,
prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such
Koranic verses as:

-1- “Fighting
is prescribed for you’
‘ (Koran 2:216);

-2- “Slay
them wherever you find them
” (Koran 4:89);

-3- “Fight
the idolators utterly
” (Koran 9:36);

and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari
and Muslim
that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

I
have been commanded to fight people until they testify
that
there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah,
and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved
their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam
over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;

and the hadith reported by Muslim,

“To go forth in the morning or evening to
fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and
everything in it.”Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts
of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give
him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he
dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally
attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought
in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy
ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent
others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were
forty-seven in number.)

Jihad
means war against infidels, of course it must be purely defensive,
right?

O9.1: The Obligatory Character of Jihad

Jihad
is a communal obligation
(def: c3.2).  When
enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer
obligatory upon others (O: the evidence for which is the Prophet’s
saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

“He who provides the equipment for a soldier in
jihad has himself performed jihad,”

and Allah Most High having said:

“Those of the believers who are unhurt but sit
behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah’s path with their
property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their
property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind. And to
each, Allah has promised great good” (Koran 4:95).

If none
of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then
everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there
was a possibility of having performed it.
In the time of the
Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal
obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. 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).

http://www.shariahthethreat.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/reliance_of_the_traveller.pdf#page=622

Offensive
Jihad
against passive infidels is fard Kifaya, a communal
obligation and required in every
year.  Perhaps we should cross check this to make sure of
it.

Hedaya Vol II, Book IX, Ch. 1 Pg.
141  PDF 154

The destruction of the
sword  is
incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors
,
as
appears from various passages in the  sacred writings which are
generally received this effect.


http://www.archive.org/stream/hedaysorguide00hamigoog#page/n154/mode/1up

The Shafi’i & Hanifi schools of fiqh hold offensive Jihad to be
fard Kifaya and constant. We need a third opinion, lets turn to the
Maliki school.

30.2b. Inviting people to Islam first

And it is preferable, according
to us, that the enemy are not fought until they have been invited


to the din of Allah except if
they attack first
.

[The Malikis prefer that each group be called upon to abandon their
disbelief and be called to the

shahada whose contents are not prescribed. He calls to the general
message of the Prophet for three

days in succession unless they attack first. Then the call is not
recommended. Indeed, it becomes

obligatory to fight them.]

http://www.baytulislam.org/Documents/fiqh/imammalik/The-Risala-A-Treatise-on-Maliki-Fiqh.pdf#page=284

Three strikes and you are out: Islamic law holds
offensive Jihad, undertaken on Islam’s initiative against passive
infidels, without provocation, to be an  annual mandate.  Moe
said that he was raised for Jihad, not for tillage.  One hadith
illustrates the difference: Jihad and agriculture are alternative
sources of income and wealth.  Jihad is preferred over
agriculture.

Sunan 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.

What
would they abandon?  Jihad. What would they return to?
Jihad. What is their religion? Jihad. What is Jihad?
Aggression  against infidels. Jihad is not listed as one of the
five pillars of Islam, so what is its status?  Jihad is the
highest peak of Islam!

Then, he said, “Shall I not inform you
of the head and pillar of the issue and the apex of



its hump?”
I said, ‘Certainly, O Messenger of Allah (SAW) .” He said, “Its head is
Islam, its



pillar is Salah
and the
apex of its hump is jihad
.” Then he said, “Shall I not tell you
about

the root of that”? I said, “Certainly, O Messenger of Allah (SAW)!” He
held his tongue

and said, “Keep it in check.” I asked, “Shall we be taken to task for
what we speak with

it”? He said, “May your mother weep at you, O Mu’adh! Will people be
cast in hell on

their faces or on their nostrils except as the consequence of their
tongues?”

[Ahmed 22-77,Ibn Majah 3973]

Having dispensed with the al-taqiyya about Moe being
peaceful, I present to you the PBS documentary, available to everybody,
not just those in St. Louis.
I
watched it on tv several years ago, and found it to be hagiographic due
to the LibTard bias of PBS. 
Some
alternatives follow.

An alternative documentary consists of narration,
apparently from Lings’ Sira, and classical and modern art.  I was
surprised to find  two of Moe’s murders of critics mentioned in
this series.  The producer is a skeptic.

Before I tell you about original sources, I present for inducement of
slumber a long, slow paced narration, apparently from Ishaq’s Sira. I
did not listen to much of this, so I can not tell you whether it is
complete. It is likely to be biased, because it is narrated by a
Sheikh.

Books

Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah
was edited by Hishham to remove material embarrassing to Islam.
Judging by what remains, that was one Hell of a book! Guillaume
translated Hishham’s Rescension as The
Life of Muhammad
.

Tabari’s 40 volume world history runs parallel to
Ishaq and the translators use Ishaq as a reference.  Volumes 6-9
are of interest. Having read Volume 8, I can recommend it without
reservation.

Those books are not inexpensive, and there is a
great deal of dross to slog through to reach the juicy bits.
Fortunately for us, Craig Winn sorted them out  for us. His 1000
page The Prophet of Doom
combines the Qur’an, hadith, Ishaq & Tabari to provide context
& chronology. The most significant quotes from those sources are
included in an appendix Winn melds five Qur’an translations, so
those quotes will not match up directly with the standard works but the

hadith , Ishaq and Tabari quotes are faithfully reproduced.

Ibn Sa’d’s hadith collection is effectively a
sira.  While, like other hadith collections, there is much
redundancy, you will find some interesting material not available in
the other collections, including extensive quotes from Moe’s extortion
letters.

The Sealed Nectar
comes close to being an official biography.  It confirms much of
the material in the other books. If you combine this book or Ibn Sa’d’s
with the six hour lecture series, your curiosity should be well
satisfied.
