Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Terrorism: Islamic Sacrament


Two pending United Nations resolutions share a common deception with previous resolutions and common dogma. Lets examine them closely. [Bold red font added for clarity.]

Combating defamation of religions revised draft resolution

7. Expresses deep concern in this respect that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

Agreed Draft Resolution on the Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief

13. Also emphasixes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned,

How frequently is the association between Islam and rights violations & terrorism made?  Is there an acceptable threshold of frequency, or is any single suggestion of association unacceptable to the UN morality police? Could they perhaps be persuaded to list & enumerated the offensive statements that cause them deep concern?

The deep concern expressed is that Islam is “Wrongly associated” with rights violations & terrorism.  The unstated premise is that Islam neither violates human rights nor engages in terrorism.  We must examine that  premise in the light of truth.

  • human rights violations
    • gender equality
      • 2:223. Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations with your wives in any manner as long as it is in the vagina and not in the anus), when or how you will, and send (good deeds, or ask Allah to bestow upon you pious offspring) before you for your ownselves. And fear Allah, and know that you are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give good tidings to the believers (O Muhammad ).
        • (And they assign to Allah a share of the tilth and cattle which He has created…)[The Meaning of Bahirah, Sa’ibah, Wasilah and Ham]
        • ((Saying:) “Go to your tilth in the morning, if you would pluck (the fruits).”) meaning, `if you want to pluck your harvest fruit.’ [A Parable of the Removal of the Earnings of the Disbelievers]
        • 4:34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband’s property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see illconduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great.
          • Indeed, Allah ordered the wife to obey her husband and prohibited her from disobeying him, because of the enormity of his rights and all that he does for her.  [Dealing with the Wife’s Ill-Conduct]
        • 4:11. Allah commands you as regards your children’s (inheritance); to the male, a portion equal to that of two females;
          • Allah commands that both males and females take a share in the inheritance, although the portion of the males is twice as much as that of the females. There is a distinction because men need money to spend on their dependants, commercial transactions, work and fulfillling their obligations. Consequently, men get twice the portion of the inheritance that females get. [Males Get Two Times the Share of Females for Inheritance]
        • 2:282. …And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her
          • (so that if one of them errs) refers to the two women witnesses; whenever one of them forgets a part of the testimony, (the other can remind her) meaning, the other woman’s testimony mends the shortcoming of forgetfulness in the first woman. [Witnesses Should Attend the Dictation of Contracts]
    • rights of minorities
      • 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.
      • 3:110. You [true believers in Islmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islm has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fsiqûn (disobedient to Allah – and rebellious against Allh’s Command).
      • Shariah: Reliance of the Traveller, Book O (Justice) {rules of Dhimmitude}.
        • O11.5.2 are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar);
        • O11.5.4 must keep to the side of the street;
        • O11.5.6 are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, (A: to ring church bells or display crosses,) recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays;
        • O11.5.7 and are forbidden to build new churches
          • See O11.10 & 11.11 for the penalty clause.

The authors of the resolutions assert that Islam is wrongly associated with human rights violations; implying that Islam is innocent of violating human rights.  I haveproved that Islam is a human rights violator.

I used used quotations from Islam’s canon of scripture to prove the fact that Islam considers women to be chattle property, tilth for men to plow.  It allocates to them half the inheritance a male receives and their testimony is weighted as half that of a male.

I used quotations from Islam’s canon of scripture and jurisprudence to prove the fact that Islam violates the rights of religious minorities.  How can the authors of the resolutions disprove those indisputable facts?

  • terrorism
    • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zlimûn (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.
    • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah 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 cast terror into their hearts;) means fear, because they had supported the idolators in their war against the Messenger of Allah and the one who knows is not like the one who does not know. [The Campaign against Banu Qurayzah]
    • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Bani An-Nadir) 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 Allah! But Allah’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).
      • (and He cast terror into their hearts) means, Allah cast fear, terror and fright in their hearts, and why would that not happen to them He who was given victory, by Allah frightening his enemies the distance of a month, laid siege to them.  [The Reason behind the Battle of Bani An-Nadir]
    • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Bani An-Nadir) breasts than Allah. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allah).
    • Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. [Bukhari 1.7.331]
    • I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), [Bukhari 4.52.220]

The authors of the resolutions assert that Islam is wrongly associated/equated with terrorism, implying that Islam is innocent of it.

I have displayed to you ayat which show beyond doubt that Allah sanctified and Moe engaged in terrorizing his intended victims.  One of them, 59:2, ends with a warning to future victims.  Another ayeh has a similar theme.

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.

It is clear, on the face of Islam’s canon of scripture that terrorism is an intrinsic sacramental tactic of Islam.  I have also displayed quotes from two hadith in which Moe braggs about being made victorious by terror.  That is the clincher.

Beat them to death so that others will see and be scared defenceless.  I have been made victorious by terror.  But, no, Islam has no association with terrorism.  Let the authors of the resolutions come forth and offer relevant, verifiable evidence to substantiate their assertion.  If they shall quote the Qur’an, let them make first ascertain that their ayat have not been abrogated by latter recitations.

What is the big deal; the cause of deep concern ? Why shouldn’t  Islam be associated with or equated with terrorism?

this may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned,

Oh mercy! Some curmudgeon might demand impairment of Muslim’s right to practice Islam!  Where in Hell are these rights ordained:

  • right to conquer
  • right to kill
  • right to terrify
  • right to enslave
  • right to plunder
  • right to rape.

Nowhere  but:

If Muslims have a right to practice Islam then we have no rights. This is because:

  1. Allah commands Muslims to fight pagans & atheists until only Allah is worshiped in the entire world. This commandment is contained in 8:3839. This commandment is confirmed by Ibn Kathir in the following tafsir; its title is dispositive. The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr
  2. Allah commands Muslims to fight ‘people of the book’ until we are subjugated and pay extortion. This commandment is contained in 9:29. This commandment is confirmed by Ibn Kathir in the following tafsir: its title is dispositive. The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
  3. In confirming those two commands, Moe declared that our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslims by submitting to Allah.  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.“[Bukhari 1.8.387]
  4. The relationship between Allah and the Ummah al Islamiyaa is that of master:slave. This fact is made clear in 9:111. Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’n. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .
  5. The compact with Satan is confirmed in Surah As-Saff. 61:10-13 tell Muslims of a commerce that will save them from Hellfire and assurre their admission to Paradise. That commerce is Jihad: holy fighting in Allah’s cause.
  6. Only Allah has the right to be worshipped. 3:2. Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa  (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists.
  7. Jihad, genocide and terrorism are intrinsic Islamic sacraments; part of the regular practice of Islam. Jihad is defined in Shariah and prescribed as an annual practice.

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….

O9.1  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.

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The 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,…

O9.9

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) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y21), 6.48-49) ).

So long as Islam is practiced, human rights are violated and we have neither peace nor security.

Myth vs Fact #488


Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.10.1


Chapter O10.0: The Spoils of Battle

O10.1

A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it.

After personal booty (def: o10.2), the collective spoils of the battle are divided into five parts. The first fifth is set aside (dis: o10.3), and the remaining four are distributed, one share to each infantryman and three shares to each cavalryman. From these latter four fifths also, a token payment is given at the leader’s discretion to women, children, and non-Muslim participants on the Muslim side.A combatant only takes possession of his share of the spoils at the official division. (A: Or he may choose to waive his right to it.)

Bottom Line: What need has the ‘religion of peace’ for legal rulings on the division of spoils of war?

What’s Wrong With Islam/Muslims?


[This blog post has received 4537 views since it was published four years ago.
Since then, links have been broken by web site changes and new
resources have been found.  This post was therefore supplanted by
a new page, but it continues to get the hits while
the new page does not.  I have therefore updated this post,
repairing broken links and adding a few, notably to Ibn Sad’s Sira and
The Sealed Nectar to make more detailed information available to the
reader.  ]

Mercenary Mission

Islam was contrived for the purpose of its founder’s
personal emolument & empowerment through accrual of spoils &
dominion through perpetual war.  Three ayat in Surah Al-Anfal make
this matter crystal clear.  Four ahadith confirm it beyond all
doubt. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils
of war. Say: “The
spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger
.”
So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey
Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers.

The spoils are for Allah and Moe; how many stolen
sheep, camels & dates can an impotent stone idol eat?  How
many captured women can it rape?

8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty
that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh,
and to the Messenger
,
and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also)
the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have
believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad
) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the
two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all
things.

 

8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have
prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made
a great slaughter
(among his enemies) in the land. You
desire the good of this world

(i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires
(for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

Allah wants genocide: “great slaughter”, Moe wants ransom money.
One ahadith omitted from Khan’s translation of Sahih Bukhari speaks
volumes about Moe’s arrogance & avarice, I quote from Aisha
Bewley’s translation.

Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: …It
is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and
grant him peace, “My
provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear
, and abasement and humility
have been placed on the one who disobeys my comman
d.

Moe got his income with his spear: by raiding camel caravans and Jewish
settlements. Later we will see Moe’s ‘command’ and the threat he made
in conjunction with it.   Allah gave Moe a special privilege
not given to anyone else: accrual of spoils.

3. The booty has been
made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before
me.
[Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331]

 

Sahih Muslim Book
019, Number 4327
:

The spoils of
war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because
Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us
.

Allah was very generous: he gave Moe the keys to the
treasures of the world and he made Moe wealthy through conquests.

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), and while I was sleeping,
the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my
hand
.
” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the
world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the
Prophet did not benefit by them).

Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 37, Number 495:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah’s
Apostle he would ask, “Has he left anything to repay his debt?” If he
was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would
offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer
their friend’s funeral prayer. When
Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests
, he said, “I am
more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers,
so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment
of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong
to his heirs. ”

Violence

Islam
is aggressively violent, by
design; irreparably. I quote Islamic law.

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
.[Reliance
of the Traveller
, Book O9.1
]

Jihad
is something  Muslims
must
do against non-Muslims every year.
Exactly what is it?

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
.

What
is its practical application?

O9.8: The Objectives
of Jihad

The
caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…

O9.9

The
caliph fights all other peoples 
until
they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book,…

How
does that apply to the United States of America?

Between
1779 and 1815, the Barbary pirates were attacking America’s
merchant marine, seizing boats, enslaving their crews and stealing
cargo. They demanded payment of tribute for safe passage.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Barbary_War

In
1786 Jefferson and John Adams went to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy to
London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman or (Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman
Adja). They asked him by
what right he extorted money and took slaves
. Jefferson
reported to Secretary of State John Jay, and to the Congress:

The
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
.
[3]

Allah
said:

8:39And 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 ]….

9:29.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 subdued.

Muhammad
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.
 Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387

Caliph
Umar’s general told the Persians:

…Our 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
.”
 Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386

Compare
the answer of Sidi Haji Abdrahaman to Bukhari4.53.386:

  • ordered us to
    fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya

    • that it was their right and duty to make
      war upon them
  • Whoever amongst
    us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise

    • every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be
      slain in battle was sure to go to heaven
      .
  • whoever amongst
    us remain alive, shall become your master

    • to make slaves of all they could take as
      prisoners.

Compare
what Allah said to what Moe said:

  • fight them
  • Fight against those
    who

    • I have been ordered
      to fight the people

Compare
Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9, paragraph 8 to Rodwell’s
translation of 9:29:

Terrorism

Allah said that he would cast terror & did cast
terror. Allah commanded Moe to treat victims harshly so as to terrorize
other prospective victims and build up military strength to threaten
and terrify them.  Allah said that the local Jews were more afraid
of Moe and his army than of himself. Moe said that he was made victorious with terror.
Allah, ever generous to his slaves, guarantees them extra credit
towards an upgrade in his Celestial Bordello for any step taken to injure or
enrage us.

Objections:

What’s
Wrong With Muslims?

If
they believe and are faithful, they obey Allah’s commands by joining
the Jihad, striving hard with their lives and their wealth. If not
called to fight, they support Jihad with Zakat. How did the Holy Land
Foundation raise $13M for Hamas?

8:2.  The believers
are only those who
,
when Allâh is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His
Verses (this Qur’ân) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses)
increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone);

49:15. Only
those are the believers
who have believed in Allâh and His
Messenger, and afterward doubt not but
strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh.

Those! They are the truthful.

61:10O 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 success.

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.

What
is the relationship between Allah & Muslims?

9:111Verily, 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 .

  • They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill
    (others) and are killed.

That’s
what Muslims do; they kill.  That’s what’s wrong with Muslims:
they worship and obey a bloodthirsty demon who commands them to subjugate
us.

Objections:

  • I have Muslim
    friends; nice people, well behaved.

    • Muslims are explicitly commanded, in several ayat, not to
      befriend Kuffar. I will cite one of them.
    • 60:1O you who believe! Take
      not My enemies and your enemies 
      (i.e.
      disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them,
      while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e.
      Islâmic Monotheism, this Qur’ân, and Muhammad ), and have driven out
      the Messenger (Muhammad ) and yourselves (from your homeland) because
      you believe in Allâh your Lord! If you have come forth to strive in My
      Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure, (then take not these disbelievers
      and polytheists, etc., as your friends). You show friendship to them in
      secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal.
      And whosoever of you
      (Muslims) does that, then indeed he has gone (far) astray, (away) from
      the Straight Path
       .
  • Most
    Muslims don’t engage in Jihad.

    • Yet.
      They haven’t been called by their Imam or Mullah. The Ummah is large
      and the battlefronts are relatively small. Once a sufficient number
      have answered the call, the rest are relieved unless an emergency
      occurs.

      • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 311:

        Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

        The
        Prophet said, on the day of the Conquest of Mecca, “There is no
        migration (after the Conquest), but Jihad and good intentions, andwhen you are called for Jihad,
        you should immediately respond to the cal
        l.”

      • Abu
        Dawud Book 14, Number 2497
        :

        Narrated
        AbuUmamah:

        The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: He who does not join the
        warlike expedition
        (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a
        warrior’s family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah
        with a sudden calamity
        .
         Yazid
        ibn Abdu Rabbihi said in his tradition: ‘before the Day of
        Resurrection”.

  • Jihad is the Muslim’s struggle
    against his ego and temptations.

    •  How do Muslims kill and get killed in inner struggle;
      wrestling with temptation?  Review 9:111 & see 3:169.
  • Jihad
    is an anachronism, only applicable to Moe’s lifetime.

    • Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

      Narrated Anas ibn
      Malik:

      The
      Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith:
      to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but
      Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and
      not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad
      will be
      performed continuously
      since the day Allah sent me as a prophet
      until the day the last member of my community will fight with the
      Dajjal (Antichrist)
      .
       The
      tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not
      invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

    • 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
      .

Take
a cold, clear eyed second look at Abu Dawud 23.3455.

  • give
    up conducting jihad
     (struggle
    in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over
    you,

    • Allah will curse the Muslims if they abandon making war in
      favor of productive pursuits.
  • until

      war is their religion

Sharia & Drinking


Do you like to consume an occasional “adult beverage”? Are you willing to allow the entry of Sharia into this country? Perhaps you might reconsider after reading The Reliance of the Traveller [searchable image].

*2*Chapter P14.0: Drinking

@P14.1

Allah Most High says:

-1- “They will ask you about wine and gambling. Say: ‘There is great sin therein’” (Koran 2:219).

-2- “O you believe: wine, gambling, idols, and fortune-telling arrows are but filth of the Devil’s handiwork, so shun them…” (Koran 5:90).

@P1.2

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

-1- “Scourge whoever drinks wine. If he drinks it again, scourge him again. If he drinks it again, scourge him again. If he drinks it a fourth time, kill him.” (N: The ruling of this hadith was later superseded, for the Propeht (Allah bless him and give him peace) was brought a drunkard for a forth time, but did not kill him, showing that execution had been superseded, though the hadith remains a proof that the crime of drunkenness is an enormity.)

-2- “Allah has cursed wine, and whoever drinks it, pours it, sells it, buys it, presses it for another, presses if for himself, carries it, accepts its delivery, or eats its price.”

-3- “Whoever drinks wine in this world shall be forbidden it in the next.

Moe’s Legacy of Violence


OIC Statement by Ambassador Masood Khan on “Incitement to Racial and Religious Hatred and the Promotion of Tolerance” at The Human Rights Council, Geneva, 21 September 2006

First the immediate context. Pope Benedict XVI’s recent speech in Regensburg University has led to protests in the Muslim world. His quotation from the 14th century Byzantine Emperor, Manuel II Paleologos, has deeply hurt the sensibilities of the Muslim all over the world. Since then we are reassured that the Pope has expressed regrets, distanced himself from the quotation from the emperor and given an invitation for frank dialogue, with mutual respect.

Unfortunately, that is not the end of the story because the Pope’s remarks have ignited a controversy about the true message of the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) and Islam. The Pope’s qualified and carefully worded apology, if it can be called one, or the Vatican’s clarification gives the impression that the Muslims have not fully understood the intent and reasoning behind the papal lecture. The irony is that they have.

The Emperor’s quotation is based on three elements: allegation against the Prophet’s legacy; a statement that Islam was spread by the sword; and a derivation that there is a nexus between violence and Islam and violence in Jihad.

The Ambassador takes up the three elements individually.

  1. Moe’s legacy.

One, the Prophet’s legacy is one of peace and amity; not of strife or war. He  was a peace-maker and a peace-builder.

Is that statement objectively true? Leaving the Qur’an aside for the moment as Allah’s legacy, not Moe’s, lets consider the Hadith which are Islam’s oral tradition of Moe’s legacy.

Was Moe a man of peace?

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    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 have.”
  • Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
    The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.
  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Al1ah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.
  • Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4294:
    It has been reported from Sulaiman b. Buraid through his father that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the Muslims who were with him. He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. Then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of Muhairs and inform them that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajirs. If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muilims and will be subjected to the Commands of Allah like other Muslims, but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai’ except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them...

If you imagine that I have cherry picked selections to make Moe look bad, click the link to the Book of Jihad in Malik’s Muwatta and read the section heading. The saying quoted below reveals Moe’s true nature; for this reason it has been Bowdlerized from most of the on line collections.

Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

Those are not the sentiments of a man of peace; that is the attitude of a pirate, not a prophet.

  1. Islam was spread by the sword

The footnotes to 2:190 the Hilali & Khan translation are informative.

Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s word is made superior, (his word being La ilaha illallah which means none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and his Religion (Islam) is propagated. …

[Note: the Qur’an Complex English translation is not being displayed. If you desire to verify the quote, you can download the pdf version  from http://abdurrahman.org/qurantafseer/muhsinkhan.pdf. [29.5MB] Turn to Pg. 52 of the pdf and scroll down toward the bottom of the page. ]

If Islam was not propagated militarily then explain the prominent place of conquests in this table of contents of Islamic history.

  1. and a derivation that there is a nexus between violence and Islam and violence in Jihad

Hilali & Khan stretched matters a bit with their claim that Jihad is a pillar of Islam; it is not in the recognized list. Note their definition, in the foot note quoted above. Compare it to the definition found in Sharia.

The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


Chapter O-9.0: 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: b-7) 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.) [Emphasis & links added.]

Now it is established, by Islamic law, that Jihad is warfare to establish the religion.  What is the the connection between Islam and violence? To fully comprehend it, you should read the entire Qur’an. Three Surhas, 8, 9 & 48 are particularly significant, but violence runs throughout the book, in 164 verses.

Jihad is mandatory, not optional.

  • 2:216. Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’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. Allah knows but you do not know.

The penalty for shirking is extreme: eternity in Hell fire.

  • 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 Allah is Able to do all things.

Jihad is the key to salvation.

  • 64:10.  O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.
  • 64:11.  That you believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
  • 64:12. (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 success.
  • 64:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allah (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad) to the believers.

Is there any violence? Is fighting violence? Do killing & wounding involve violence?

  • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
  • 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost,

Did any truth pass the lips of  Ambassador Masood Khan when he spoke to the HRC? I doubt it, he was off to a very dishonest start.

Shrub & Sharia


Our friend Roger Gardiner published a collection of President Bush’s false statements about Islam. I reacted by sending a link to comments@whitehouse.gov and sending copies to several friends.  I quoted from Islam’s canon of Sharia, adding links to the Qur’an citations. I will add links to the ahadith quoted so that you can verify them as well. Reliance of the Traveler is Islam’s legal handbook, sanctioned by  Al-Azhar. You can verify that at Wikipedia.

I have added emphasis & hyperlinks; I have not  otherwise altered the quotes.  The quotes you are about to read are Islamic law, based on Moe’s recitation & sunnah. If there is any doubt in your mind, visit  The Risala of ‘Abdullah ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani (310/922 – 386/996) A Treatise on Maliki Fiqh .


http://radarsite.blogspot.com/2008/09/from-other-sites-on-line-1-sep-08.html
A supremely important posting by Roger Gardiner at Radar Site. What he posts is true; I have posted the details with ample evidence in the past. My flier:  Thousands Died and Bush Lied documents the details with quotes from Islam’s canon of scripture & tradition.

Claims of a “great religion of peace” “hijacked” by “extremists” are effectively blown to Hell by a few salient quotations from Islam’s canon of law (Sharia) found in Reliance of the Traveler. What the Caliph does, as a routine matter of demonically ordained obligation and how frequently he does it reveal Islam’s evil as nothing else can.

By God, unlike President Bush, to whom a copy has been sent, I do not lie nor do I conceal essential truth. Read it and curse Islam!

Al Misri overlooked 8:39, 9:29, 9:123 & 47:4 in that explanation. To those who would deny the clear and obvious meaning of the cited ayat, I answer with Ibn Kathir’s scholarly exegeses, which includes the ayat and relevant hadith. The tafsir titles alone should be sufficient to clue you in. Click them and read the entire text, ignoring the Arabic, which is translated in the text.

BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) 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: o-11.4) -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,
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
“I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


O-9.9
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) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y-21), 6.48-49) ).

The Caliph makes war upon Kuffar because it is Allah’s command   expressed in 8:39 & 9:29. That is Islamic law because Allah commanded and Muhammad exemplified it. See the Tafsir topics including the word order from the list provided above. The Order to fight until there is no more Fitnah
The Order for Jihad against the Disbelievers, the Closest, then the Farthest Areas
The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr
The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
The Order for Jihad against the Disbelievers and Hypocrites

If you doubt that Muhammad exemplified obedience to those commands, then turn to Riyad-us-Salaheen Book 11, Chapter 234 : Obligation of Jihad.

Back to Reliance: how frequently is the Caliph obliged to attack us?

@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.

Do not blindly take my word for this. Click the links I have provided and verify what I have written. Reliance is one large text file, use the Ctrl F search function to locate the quotes.

Now that you know the truth, don’t conceal it, share it. The voting public needs to be informed. They need to know so that they can demand honesty from the person they will elect November 4.

I sent an email outlining the most critical facts to each of the primary campaigns. None of them responded except by putting me on their mailing lists to solicit funds. My Challenge to the Candidates is clear and well documented, containing a vital subset of the  information presented above. Obama and McCain can not plead ignorance with these facts on the table.

Barack Hussein Obama: What’s In A Name?


Hussein: what’s the big deal? That name is an honorific, after Ḥusayn ibn ‘Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib, grandson of Moe, who was martyred at Karbala in 680. When ranks of Shi’ia cut & flagellate themselves in the streets, they are commemorating his death.

Barack means blessed, similar to the Jewish name: Baruch. The infant son of an American atheist and an African Muslim, allegedly an apostate, was given those names, which indicate Islamic origin. The big deal is this: Senator Obama claims to be Christian, not Muslim. What difference would it make if is Muslim?

Muslims are obligated to raise their children as Muslims and instruct them in the tenets & rituals of Islam. [See Reliance of the Traveler, Book a4.6.] Instructing them is necessary to save them from Hellfire.

Muslims are obligated to obey Allah and his Messenger. [Reliance, Book B7.3] What did Allah order them to do? Most important to us are his orders to:

  1. Make war on Pagans until only Allah is worshiped altogether and everywhere.
  2. Make war on Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until they are subdued and pay extortion.
  3. Terrorize their victims.
  4. Prepare every instrument of war to terrify the disbelievers.
  5. Make a great slaughter.

Using the Senator’s full name is considered to be an implication that he is, in fact a Muslim, and as such, inimical to the interests of this nation.

Is there any indication of his leanings in his public statements? From Wikipedia:

At a meeting with Palestinian students two days later, Obama stated opposition to Hamas in favor of rival party Fatah, noting his desire to “consolidate behind a single government with a single authority that can then negotiate as a reliable partner with Israel.” In a comment aimed at Hamas, he said that “the US will always side with Israel if Israel is threatened with destruction.

What is the strategic difference between Hamas & Fatah? Which one does not use violence? Which one does not give high praise to shaheed? Which one does not demand the erasure of Israel? Which one does not incite terrorism? Which one is not Muslim? The leader of Fatah was the bag man at the Munich Massacre; some moderate!

…on March 11, 2007, Obama said that “if we could get some movement among Palestinian leadership, what I’d like to see is a loosening up of some of the restrictions on providing aid directly to the Palestinian people.

On March 11, 2007 Obama said: “Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people.”[48] On June 4, 2007 Obama stated that “resolution [to the conflict] and a better life for all people” “is something that can be achieved, but it’s going to require some soul-searching on the Palestinian side. They have to recognize Israel’s right to exist; they have to renounce violence and terrorism as a tool to achieve their political ends; they have to abide by agreements. In that context, I think the Israelis will gladly say, ‘Let’s move forward negotiations that would allow them to live side by side with the Palestinians in peace and security.'”[49]

Were Senator Barack Hussein Obama not a Muslim, his statements about Iran, Darfur and the Armenian Massacre would bring down upon him universal condemnation from Muslims, as would his superficial appearance of support for Israel.

Because he is in favor of the “road map”, we know that his ‘support’ for Israel is not genuine. Demanding concessions to Islam in exchange for empty promises is not support!!

Because of his urge to pull out of Iraq and abandon it to al-Qaeda, it is obvious that he sides with our enemy in the global war on terror. Iraq would replace Afghanistan as the staging area for new attacks prompted by the Qur’anic commands listed above. Terrorism would only increase as a result of our demonstrated weakness and lack of resolve, as it did when we fled Tehran, Beirut & Mogadishu.

Were Senator Barack Hussein Obama a genuine convert to Christianity, Muslims the world over would be howling for his head. Apostasy carries a death sentence. Again, I quote from Reliance

O8.1

When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

@O8.2

In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

Why then does Senator Barack Hussein Obama have Muslim supporters?

From Belief Net:

This year, the bulk of Muslim support is likely to go to Democratic Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, said Mukit Hossain, a political consultant to the Muslim American Society, which has taken a leading role in mobilizing Muslim Americans to vote and be active in political life.

Obama, whose Kenyan relatives include Muslims and who lived in majority-Muslim Indonesia as a child, has courted Muslim voters, saying he would be more understanding of their concerns because of his background.

If he is not now and never was Muslim, why would Senator Barack Hussein Obama “be more understanding of their concerns because of his background”? And what difference would that understanding make? Would he reverse Shrub’s paltry & superficial security measures? Would he prosecute the war effectively or would he surrender to Islam?

If he is a Christian, not a Muslim, let him stand and recite the Nicene Creed. Let him declare Jesus Christ crucified, dead & resurrected  as his savior.  Let him expressly abjure Islam’s evil imperatives to conquest, genocide & terror as laid down in :

  1. 2:216
  2. 8:12
  3. 8:39
  4. 8:67
  5. 9:29
  6. 47:4

Let him expressly abjure the explicit declarations of those commands found in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, as outlined in my blog post: ROPMA.

At the same time, I want to hear Senator John McCain, Senator Hillary Clinton and Governor Mike Huckabee acknowledge the existence of those same immutable Islamic doctrines and denounce them as inimical to human life & liberty.

Islam is neither a religion nor peaceful; it is a war machine. I disrespectfully demand that  anyone seeking my vote for high office acknowledge that fact! I can not place trust in anyone who refuses.
