High Regard for Jesus & Mary in Islamic Scriptures? Part 2

E-mail Print PDF

In Part 1 of this article, the ‘place’ of Jesus in Islam has been discussed. This part analyses the ‘place’ of Mary, mother of Jesus, in Islamic Scriptures.

BROADCASTING NAMES OF MUSLIM WOMEN IS SHAMEFUL ACT IN ISLAM

It is a practice among many non-Arab Muslim communities that they don't print the names of brides in the marriage invitation cards. Instead they denote her as ‘Noor-e-Chashmi’ – an expression that somewhat mean ‘our loved one’ or ‘light of our family’. This is because Muslim men don’t want the public, particularly other men, to know the names of female family members unnecessarily. They try to hide the names of female family members from the public.

The Saudis have a unique practice of addressing fellow Muslim men. A bachelor will be called by his name until he gets married. After marriage, he will be called Abu Muhammad (father of Muhammad) until he fathers a son. Even if he fathers 10 daughters and but no son, he will still be called ‘Abu Muhammad’ (‘Abu Muhammad’ here doesn’t refer to Prophet Muhammad, as nobody would dare to be the prophet's father). Only after he fathers a son, say named Qasem, he will be called Abu Qasem. The idea behind this practice is to highlight the names of male family members but hide the names to female members from the public.

MUHAMMAD: DOUBLE REWARD FOR JESUS' FOLLOWERS – ONLY IF THEY ALSO FOLLOW ME!

Allah's Apostle said, " If a man believes in Jesus and then believes in me, he will get a double reward. And if a slave fears his Lord (i.e. Allah) and obeys his masters, he too will get a double reward." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 4:55:655)

Muhammad was trying to sell his brand of religion to the Christians by offering his product two times at the price of one. Was he really liked Christians, their scriptures and their Messiah Jesus?

The Spectacular March of Jihad in America Post 9/11

Stretching from Dearborne in Michigan in the north, to Los Angeles in California in the West, to Miami in Florida in the South, to New York in the East – an Islamic curtain has descended upon the United States!

Behind this curtain, the greatest democracy the world has ever seen, a democracy that has enshrined the equality of all mankind, the equality of women with men, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, assembly, the separation of powers, freedom of religion, equality before the law and the greatest declaration in history:

   

Need of the Hour: A Fatwa against Islam and Prophet Muhammad

E-mail Print PDF

On 31 August 2014, Imams of Britain issued a fatwa, prohibiting British Muslims from supporting and joining the barbaric Islamic State Jihadi terrorist group in Iraq and Syria. The fatwa termed the Islamic State's ideology as “poisonous” and supposedly against the teachings of Islam.

There has been way too many such fatwas over recent years with little impact. Muslims just seem to ignore such fatwas as western-living Muslims joining Jihadi cults both home and abroad continue swelling. It is estimated that at least 500 British Muslims, twice the number of Muslims serving in the British Army, have joined the barbaric Islamic State Jihadi group in Iraq and Syria.

Under these circumstances, and given the seriousness of the danger the world stands face to face with Islamic Jihadi terrorism, the British Imams should have issued a fatwa as follows that could have some beneficial impact for humanity if at all any:

 

U.K. Imams' Fatwa against British Muslims Joining the Islamic State

E-mail Print PDF

The fatwa reads:

“There is no doubt that President Assad’s regime in Syria is oppressive, unjust and brutal, and has committed numerous atrocities against its own people. The same is true of the so-called ‘Islamic State’ (IS) or self-styled ‘Caliphate', formerly known as ‘The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria’: it is an oppressive and tyrannical group. The IS persecution and massacres of Shia Muslims, Christians and Yazidis is abhorrent and opposed to Islamic teachings and the Islamic tolerance displayed by great empires such as the Mughals and Ottomans. [Islamic State] is a heretical, extremist organisation and it is religiously prohibited (haram) to support or join it; furthermore, it is an obligation on British Muslims to actively oppose its poisonous ideology, especially when this is promoted within Britain. British and other EU citizens are bound by their duties to their home countries according to Islamic theology and jurisprudence: it is therefore prohibited (haram) to travel to fight with any side in Syria, including non-state actors, since this is forbidden by laws in EU countries.” See here. (The reason I have had to use the Times of Israel is that it is the only online source I've seen that actually quotes the fatwa.)

 

O Islamophobic Kafers! Do Not Criticize Islam before Knowing the Noble Teachings of Islam Fully, Part 2

E-mail Print PDF

It is our sincere belief that after reading Part 1 of this article, unclean Kafers will rethink about mocking Muslims on the subject of homosexuality in Islam. Indeed, no further discussion is needed when Allah (swt) Himself will supply pearl-like prepubescent boys in abundance for us in His Paradise. The Kafers need not get astonished by this action of Allah. The secrets of Heaven and wisdom of Allah are beyond the intellect of humans. Ignorant Kafers certainly can't comprehend all that.

In Part 1, we have seen that Muhammad equated Muslim women with domestic animals (Tabari IX:113). Let us continue our discussion with some more findings on our holy prophet's comparison of Muslim women with animals.

 

Islamic State in the Grand Scheme of Things

E-mail Print PDF

The Sunni Jihadist ‘Islamic State’ or Dawla Islamiya is the manifestation of what Sunni Islamists have been striving for for a long time, especially groups like Hizb-ut-tahrir and many other hardline Islamist groups.

After 9/11 as I started to research into Islamic teachings I started visiting a liberal ex-Muslim website called secular Islam. There in a comments section for several months I viewed comments / arguments flying back and forwards and in particular some Islamist kept posting links to khilafah.com articles. These were truly scary reading material, very professionally produced with a lot of erudite writers and a large following. More than anything else these articles woke me up to the threat that Islamic thought poses with the most expansionist and supremacist teachings being not a mere historical curiosity but underpinning a large movement of Muslims striving hard for them.

 

The Islamic Terror Orchestra

E-mail Print PDF

islamic terror orchestraIt has been 13 years since 9/11 and the West is still reluctant to link the non-ending parade of jihad groups with Islam. The West is also in denial about the similarities all radical Islamic groups share. It is important for the West to realize that there is a natural division of labor between the different terror groups. Some groups specialize in terror against non-Muslims and Western governments while others specialize in terrorizing Arab governments that refused to follow Sharia. But the truly sophisticated groups are those who reside in the West, calling themselves ‘moderate’ while at the same time defending and controlling the direction of Islamist goals through advocacy, diplomacy, negotiation and PR.

 

A New Qur'an

E-mail Print PDF

Introduction

I was reading an article written by Islamic critic Mu’min Salih about how the Arabs did not think highly of the language of the Qur’an, while, at the same time, we see Muslims who do not know Arabic praise the “high level” language of the Qur’an!

At the end of the article, Salih provided some links to new “out of the oven” Suras written by different people of our age. When I saw such wonderful Suras, my “Eeman” (faith) increased, and I thought it would be nice to have a posting that has some links to the wonderful Suras written by the “prophets” of our age.

Readers are encouraged to provide more links to more “Suras” and “Verses”. I will update this posting with the added links from readers incorporated into it. Thank you in advance.

The following are some of the many Suras posted on the Internet by Arabs:

O Islamophobic Kafers! Do Not Criticize Islam before Knowing the Noble Teachings of Islam Fully, Part 1

Recently, I noticed most western social media making fun about a Saudi Sheikh, who was killed years ago by a donkey while he allegedly tried to sodomize the poor animal.

Never criticize Islam without knowing its noble teachings fully

 

Muhammad the Criminal Mastermind of Arabia and Allah His Imaginary Slave

E-mail Print PDF

The supposed God of the Universe must be of Moral Perfection, so would His representatives on earth. Allah duly claims the same about Prophet Muhammad in the Quran. Therefore, the Hadiths would outline a character and personality of Muhammad that would be of moral perfection. If there is anything said in the Quran or any character and personality traits of Muhammad in the hadiths lacks moral perfection, that would negate the Quran to be the word of God , and Muhammad's claims of being the Prophet of God. In other words, if any words or deeds of Muhammad in authentic hadiths shows him spreading unjustified hatred of non-Muslims, unjustified degradation or denigration women or any other human beings, unjustified act of violence, unjustified act of leading or ordering or planning wars, let alone ordering murders, massacres, rape, enslavement, booty, child molestation, sex slavery, stoning, maiming, terror, torture invoking the name of God, then Muhammad could not be a prophet of God but a fraud.

Norway Deports Islam Critic Imran Firasat to Spain

E-mail Print PDF

imran-firasatIt seems it is Imran Firasat's sin that he is not a deadly Jihad terrorist like Mullah Krekar seeking to destroy the West. Had he been one, he would have found refuge and protection in Norway or any other Western country. Instead, he chose to abandone Islam because of its violent nature and become a passionate critic of the terrorists like Mullah Krekar and their deadly ideology. As a result, there is no place for Imran Firasat in Spain or Norway, and probably nowhere in Europe.

We reported recently that Imran Firasat—having lost his final appeal at the Spanish Supreme Court for the reinstatement of his refugee status, which the Spanish government had revoked two years ago for making the film the Innocent Prophet—recently moved to Norway and sought asylum there, as the Spanish police was looking for him to process his deportation to Pakistan or Indonesia, where he faces execution for apostasy and criticism of Islam.

We also informed that the Norwegian authorities, ignoring his asylum request, detained him and was trying to deport him in a hurried manner.

And indeed he was deported on Monday afternoon to Spain without giving his lawyer sufficient time to contest his deportation in court.

“This seems cynical and as if there is no interest to take into account the fact that this is a unique situation,” said attorney Heidi Bache-Wiig.

 

Norway, a Safe Haven for Al-Qaeda Allied Terrorist Leader Mullah Krekar, Not for Islam Critic Imran Firasat

E-mail Print PDF

-imran-firasatImran Firasat, the Pakistani-born ex-Muslim critic of Islam and film producer, whose last resort to stay in Spain as a refugee was rejected by the Spanish Supreme Court in June, traveled to Norway—a country with distinguished record in offering shelter to people on humanitarian grounds—in the hope of finding refuge there.

But Norway, which even refuses to extradite the dangerous Al-Qaeda allied terrorist leader Mullah Krekar to Iraq, lest he would be executed in his home country, is refusing to offer asylum to Imran Firasat, and is instead set to deport him back to Spain, when Spain is preparing to deport him to Pakistan or Indonesia, where he is almost certain to suffer death under law or mob justice.

 

About Mullah Krekar

Krekar is the founding leader of the Al-Qaeda allied Iraqi terrorist group Ansar Al-Sunnah, which has carried out countless terrorist attacks and massacres in Iraq. He is listed as a terrorist by the UN and the US State Department. In 2003, the Norwegian High Court judged him a "danger to national security" (also by the Norway Supreme Court in 2008) and he was ordered to be deported in February 2003. In 2005, Iraqi justice minister also sought his extradition to Iraq to face justice for terrorist activities.

 

To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam (Part 6B): Zakat the 4th Pillar of Islam – A Means for Making Muhammad Wealthy?

E-mail Print PDF

ZAKAT – A TEAM OF ROBBERS THAT RUINED THE ARAB LAND

Zakat, the fourth pillar of Islam, deals exclusively with wealth. What were the reasons that motivated Muhammad to copy this pagan practice, and impose it on Muslims as well as on non-Muslims. The Quran and hadiths reveal Allah's true intentions behind the imposing of Zakat. There are hundreds of hadiths that reveal the greed of Muhammad (behind the mask of his imaginary Allah), and his bandit Sahaba towards wealth and power. Muhammad accumulated wealth and annexed the neighboring territories by all kinds of crooked means. It is impossible to archive them all in an article. Evidences documenting Muhammad’s evil actions for obtaining wealth and power will requires volumes of books. This part of the series deals with how Muhammad obtained power, and how even the ruler of Rome, the superpower of his time, was afraid of this notorious mafia gang. Most of us don’t pay attention to the fact that our so-called ‘prophet’ was simply a king of Arabia. In this article, I will also list a few hadiths to reveal how a neglected shepherd boy became the king of Arabia.

Vimeo Also Deletes the “Aisha and Muhammad” Movie – Air-Tight Censorship against Criticism of Islam in Western Media

E-mail Print PDF

Those, who are aware of the newly-released movie, “Aisha and Muhammad”, by producer Imran Firasat should already know that Youtube stood in constant and firm vigilance with an iron-whip in hand to strike down any attempt to promote the movie on its website.

Youtube deactivated the first link of the movie within one-and-a-half hours of activation. The second link was deactivated faster that the first. That's how youtube dealt with Imran Firasat's movie.

What baflles us most is the fact that youtube fought hard a legal battle to keep the rather shoddily made video, “The Innocence of Muslims”, after one of it actresses, following death-threat from Muslims, initiated a legal proceeding against Youtube after it rejected her request to remove the video on the ground of defending freedom of expression. The protracted legal battle ran on for nearly a year, and in the final court verdict, youtube lost the case a few months ago, and regretfully deleted the video, terming it a bad day for freedom of expression.
