Boston Bombing: Who and Why
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.
The quote above comes from the Hnifi version of Islamic Law and is
found in Hedaya, Volume II, Book IX, page 141. It means
that infidels may be attacked without provocation.
The Qur’an verses1
behind that passage from Islamic Law have no expiry, they are open
ended,. Thus, the communal obligation to wage Jihad against
disbelievers continues to the end of the world.
Infidels, at all times, by some party of the Mussulmans.
The quote above comes from Page 140 of Hedaya’s second volume; it is a
translator’s note The Shafi’i school’s Reliance of the Traveller,
in Book O9.1. makes plain the fact that attacks against
passive infidels are required annually; that all who know of the
communal obligation are sinners if no attack is carried out when it is
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.…
Objectors declare that Islam is a religion, an
equally valid pathway to God. They pray and they sway so it must be
ok. Was any legitimate religion founded for the personal emolument of its founder?
Does the deity of any legitimate religion sanctify and reward acts of
terrorism? Does the founder of any legitimate religion brag about
winning wars by terrorism? 3:151, 8:12,39,57,60,65,67,
Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220. 2 Does the
deity of any legitimate religion demand genocide3 as the
price of admitting its founder to Paradise?
Is Islam a legitimate religion entitled to the umbra
of protection afforded by the First Amendment’s free exercise clause?
Why do they attack us?
That is what Adams & Jefferson wanted to learn
when they met Tripoli’s Ambassador, so
they asked him. At that
time, we had no boots on the ground in Arabia or Asia and Israel was
dominated by the Ottoman Empire.
ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the
Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all
nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that
it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could
be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and
that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure
to go to heaven.
Anything and everything Moe said while reciting the
Qur’an and everything he did in pursuit thereof is the “law of the
Prophet” After Moe died, Umar sent the army to fight nearby
kingdoms. The Persians wanted to know why they were being attacked.
Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till
you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet
has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed
(i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as
he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become
your master.” he
The orders to fight
Surah Al-Baqarah 2:216 makes it plain that Jihad4
is ordained for Muslims; a communal obligation. The next verse
makes it plain that Jihad, in that context, means holy war.
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.
2:217. They ask you concerning
fighting in the Sacred Months (i.e. 1st, 7th, 11th and 12th months of
the Islâmic calendar). Say, “Fighting therein is a great
(transgression) but a greater (transgression) with Allâh is to prevent
mankind from following the Way of Allâh, to disbelieve in Him, to
prevent access to Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah), and to drive out its
inhabitants, and Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And they will never
cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion (Islâmic
Monotheism) if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his
religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this
life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire.
They will abide therein forever.”
The primary Jihad imperatives are found in Surah
Al-Anfal and Surah At-Taubah. Note that there is no mention of
their being defensive in nature and no geographic or chronological
limits on these imperatives.
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.
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
Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 is one of several hadith
which confirm the Jihad imperatives. It also brings unpleasant facts to
- Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims: The season is
open and we can be attacked with impunity.
- As disbelievers, we have no human rights; we only obtain them by
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
The Jihad imperatives are codified into Shari’ah, in
The Reliance of the Traveller O9.8 &
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,…
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) ) …
Where is the defensive or retaliatory element in
those provisions of Islamic law? To see clear confirmation of the
obvious, turn to O25.9 where waging war against neighboring
infidels is listed as an eighth duty of subordinate rulers.
What motivates Muslims?
Terrorists are motivated by Allah’s threat and
promise because they are believers5. If they were hypocrites,
whose Islam goes no deeper than their throats,
they would not be planting bombs. On resurrection day, Allah will
weigh their sins against their good deeds. The swing of the balance
determines where they spend eternity, Paradise or Perdition.
A Muslim who does not join the Jihad when called
will be damned.
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
A Muslim who joins the Jihad with good intentions
will have his sins forgiven and be admitted into Paradise.
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
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.
The minimum number of wives in Paradise is two.
The maximum number is 72. The quantity and quality of food and
wine the Muslim gets and the number of virgins he gets is a function of
which of the 100 levels of Paradise he is admitted to, which is a
function of the balance of his sins and good deeds. How can a
Muslim gain extra credit toward an upgrade in Paradise? By any
step taken to injure or enrage disbelievers: ACTS OF TERRORISM!
. This fact is clear on the face of the text in 9:120.
was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the
neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh’s Messenger (Muhammad when
fighting in Allâh’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer
their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst
nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any
step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an
enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness.
Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn.
Why do they hate us?
Muslims hate us because we are not them. Why?
Because Allah hates us; we are accursed,
of creatures who must be punished,
and gathered into Hell. Muslims love what Allah loves and
hates what Allah hates. The concept is called Wala Wal Bara.
They hate us and attack us because we ain’t Muslims;
nothing short of sincere conversion to Islam will change that. If
we want to stop the attacks, we must deport all Muslims and exclude
them from entering. There is no acceptable alternative.

While it is possible that others have adopted the Islamic M.O., it is
unlikely. Multiple explosive devices set to detonate at the same
time and disperse shrapnel into large crowds fits the pattern of
Islamic terrorism. A person of interest, described as a an
exchange student from Saudi Arabia, was chased down and tackled by a
witness. Do you notice anything familiar? Where were
most of the Magnificent Nineteen from? What kind of Visa did they
use to gain admission?
Why do Muslims need to hurt us? Because we are
not Muslims. Everyone who is not Muslim is deemed to be a rebel
against Allah, one who disbelieves, contradicts or opposes Allah &
Moe. I disrespectfully direct doubters, dissenters & deniers to
Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:33 and Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir thereof. . Surah Al-Imran 3:12
informs us that we are to be “defeated and gathered together into
Hell”. Surah At-Taubah 9:29
commands Muslims to wage war against Jews, Christians &
Zoroastrians until we are subjugated and submit to extortion. 9:120
promises Muslims that any step taken to injure or enrage disbelievers
will be imputed to them as a righteous good deed. When Judgment Day
comes, after Muslims murder the last Jew, Allah will weigh their sins against their good deeds. The
swing of the balance will determine where they spend eternity.
Of course, Goddamned fools know that terrorism is harram in
Islam. They know that
killing innocent persons is forbidden They know something that ain’t true.
They do not know, because they have not read 5:33 and Ibn Kathir’s
Tafsir, that only
Muslims are innocent. The
prohibition is on killing Muslims. Since they have not read Sahih
Bukhari, damned fools do not know that no Muslim shall be killed for killing a disbeliever.
UN resolutions declare that Islam cannot and must not be associated
with terrorism. There are four little problems with that: Allah
said that he would cast terror and did cast terror. Moe said that he
was made victorious with terror. Allah commands Muslims to strike
terror into the hearts of disbelievers.
Almighty God, who answers prayer, I beseech thee for
the immediate death and eternal damnation of the perpetrators of the
Boston bombing, and those who ordered, financed, facilitated, planned,
aided, assisted and or approve of, celebrate, sympathize with or take
pleasure in that most accursed crime against humanity.
“Its Islam, stupid!” And so long as there are
believing Muslims on our soil; in our cities, it will not be possible
to be safe and secure. We must constantly anticipate the next
flash of fire; the next blast, knifing, vehicular homicide or
shooting. Eventually, trust and comity will be completely
shattered and normal life will be impossible.
Put an end to it. Disrespectfully and contumaciously
demand proscription of the propagation & practice of Islam.
Tell your Congressman & Senators that, unless Muslims are expelled
& excluded, they will be removed from office and replaced in the
next election cycle.

You denounce ‘violent extremists’; do you denounce Muhammad bin

followed up with his army, slaughtering, dispossessing and enslaving2
those who refused to submit ? Muhammad said that he was “raised
for jihad and not for tillage”3, “sent with a sword to see that
Allah is worshiped4”
and “commanded to fight”5 with men. He
also said that he was “made victorious with terror”6

denounce him as a terrorist.
