I just suffered through the last conversation I will listen to where an ignorant person tries to explain why the ‘terrorists’ are perverting Islam and how Islam is actually a ‘peaceful’ religion. THAT IS NOT WHAT MUHAMMAD TAUGHT!
To those who believe the ‘terrorists’ have perverted Islam, I say that it is a violation of Natural Law, the principles of sound reasoning and basic civic duty to:
— Speak from ignorance — especially when your words place others in mortal jeopardy!
— Refuse to educate yourself!
— Reject correction when it is offered by those who know more than you!
— Reject the truth once you have learned it!
If I sound angry, I apologize. I am not angry; I am frustrated. For the last three days, I listened to radio talk show host, Mike Broomhead, as he admitted he does not know Islam, then went ahead and old his audience that the ‘terrorists’ believe in a perversion of Islam. According to Broohead, the ‘radical’ Muslims have perverted the teachings of Muhammad much the same way the Westboro Baptist church has perverted the teaching of Christ. Then today, Broomhead put a Westernized Sunni Muslim on the radio to support his claims that the ‘terrorists’ are following a perverted teaching of Islam. Even Beck, who claims to have written his book, “It Is About Islam,” has told his audience that the ‘terrorists’ are following a perverted understanding of Islam. Well, I am telling anyone who will listen, these people are all wrong about Islam and the teachings of Muhammad (and several of them are flat-out lying about it).
The root of the problem is that Jesus told His followers that those who live by the sword will die by the sword, while Muhammad boasted that he and his followers would be victorious by the sword. The two religions are negations of each other. This means you cannot make direct comparisons between them. If you do, you will be wrong — period! I have written that it is against Natural Law and the principles of logic and sound reasoning to accept heresay when you can go directly to the source. This is why I ignored what I was hearing about Islam from our politicians, the news and from commentators and took the time to read the Qur’an for myself instead — just like Jefferson and our founders did. And, just like Jefferson and our founders, I discovered the truth about Islam is much different from what these people have been telling us.
Did you know that the Qur’an is a mess? You cannot make a religion from it. You need the Sunna for that. The Sunna is a collection of Hadith, or sayings and customs of Muhammad. You also need Muhammad’s official biography. This is because you have to have Muhammad’s example of how to live Islam, or none of the Qur’an will make any sense. The Sunna and official biography of Muhammad are all official holy books in Islam. They are also where the truly ugly side of Islam hides. Very few in the West are even aware of the existence of these other Islamic holy books, let alone what is in them. If they were, then they would not be so accepting of the ignorance and lies coming from our ‘leaders.’
Islam was created by Muhammad. He is the sole creator of this religion. There were no other co-founders. This makes Muhammad the soul and highest authority on what Islam is and is not. His words end all discussion and debate on any issue concerning Islam. Muhammad said this very same thing. In fact, he made it a command to all Muslims:
“They can have no Faith, until they make you (Muhammad) judge in all disputes, and find in their souls no resistance against Your decisions, accepting them with complete submission.”
“No Muslim has any choice after Allah and His Apostle have decided a matter.”
“He who disobeys the Apostle after guidance has been revealed will burn in Hell.”
Muhammad also claimed to be the ‘perfect’ man, and that his example was the ‘perfect’ example for all Muslims to follow:
“You have indeed a noble paradigm in the Apostle of Allah.” [A second translation reads:] “You have in (Muhammad) the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct for anyone to follow.” [A third reads:] “Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day.” [A fourth reads:] “Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent prototype.” [A fifth says:] “You have indeed a noble paradigm [archetype, exemplar, standard, model, or pattern] to follow in Allah’s Apostle.”
Muhammad even went so far as to equate himself with his god, Allah, in that Muhammad commanded Muslims to pray to him. Muhammad even said Allah and the angels prayed to him, Muhammad:
Allah sends His Salat on the Prophet (Muhammad) and also His angels too. O you who believe! Send your Salat on him (Muhammad), and greet him with the Islamic way of greeting (salutation i.e. As-Salamu ‘Alaikum).
- 1. the ritual prayer of Muslims, performed five times daily in a set form.
So, what did Muhammad say about terrorism? He said:
“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror.’”
What did Muhammad say about Jihad?
“Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims), though you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and like a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not.” [Another translation reads:] “Warfare is ordained for you.”
If you are a non-Muslim and you have a Muslim friend, you might want to consider what Muhammad said about Muslims taking non-Muslims friends:
“Believers! Take not into your intimacy those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, and Christians). They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin. Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths. What their hearts conceal is far worse. When they are alone, they bite off the very tips of their fingers at you in their rage. Say unto them: ‘Perish in your rage.’”
“We reject you [non-Muslims]. Hostility and hate have come between us forever, unless you believe in Allah only.’”
And if you think your Muslim friends are telling you the truth, you might want to consider this:
Bukhari 84: 64
Whenever I tell you a narration from Allah’s Apostle, by Allah, I would rather fall down from the sky than ascribe a false statement to him, but if I tell you something between me and you (not a Hadith) then it was indeed a trick (i.e., I may say things just to cheat my enemy). No doubt I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”
In case you do not understand, Muhammad gave true believers permission to lie to non-Muslims to protect themselves and/or to further the cause of Islam. Muhammad also said that, toward the end of time, many will claim to be Muslims, but they will be false Muslims and that true Muslims should kill them. In fact, Muhammad told the true believers to kill anyone claiming to be Muslim but who disobeys Muhammad’s commands:
“Allah said, ‘Do not turn away from Muhammad when he is speaking to you. Do not contradict his orders. And do not be a hypocrite, one who pretends to be obedient to him and then disobeys him. Those who do so will receive My vengeance. You must respond to the Apostle when he summons you to war.”
“Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy – a fierce slaughter – murdered, a horrible murdering.”
“If they turn back from Islam, becoming renegades, seize them and kill them wherever you find them.”
Now you know why so many Muslims kill others we believe to be Muslims. It is because they are following Muhammad’s command to kill the apostates (fake believers) who refuse to obey Muhammad’s commands.
But what of all the supposedly ‘peaceful’ passages in the Qur’an? For the most part, they come from the first 3 years of Islam, before Muhammad said Allah told him to wage war on non-believers. About this and many other things, Muhammad said:
“We do not abrogate any of Our verses (of the Qur’an) or cause it to be forgotten except [unless] that We substitute it with something better or similar; don’t you know that Allah has full power over everything?”
In other words, the ‘peace’ verses were erased and replaced with the commands to wage war until there is only Islam.
But, please, don’t take my word for it. Read the Qur’an and Hadith for yourself. Read Muhammad’s biography, the one Islam accepts. Test it all against history. Here is a start. The following each contain passages from the Qur’an and most widely accepted Hadith, all of which are fully cited. But understand, the passages in these links are but a few select choices. There are many more. In fact, 1 in every 55 verses in the Qur’an commands killing. The Hadith are even worse.
Know that by posting this, I honestly put my life at risk. Muhammad would see this post as an insult, and so will all true Muslims. This means they have been commanded to kill me. I do not fear, as my faith is in the Lord, Jesus Christ. If you look into it, you will find that Islam is the literal negation of Christianity. There is no more antichrist religion in this world than Islam. In fact, in Islamic end times prophecy, their savior is the ‘Antichrist; in the Bible’s Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ. They champion everything the Bible condemns, and condemn everything the Bible exalts. And Muhammad left them with a final command to wage war against the entire world until there is only Islam.
