Dear fellow brothers! Do we know how Allah implemented prayers, fast and the Hajj pilgrimage etc. in Islam? We think that Allah introduced them all of a sudden at one go. But it is not. Muhammad implemented or rejected in stages, according to the temperament of relationships with the communities, from whom they was copied. In the next two articles, let us unearth the facts on the stages of ‘Fasting’ during the 23-year-long prophetic carrier of our prophet Muhammad.
How can it continue to be maintained that Islam is peaceful and "good for women?" Not only does the Koran sanction discrimination and bigotry against women, as well as wife-beating, but Islamic or sharia law includes the right to marry females of any age and to have sex with girls as young as nine years old. Women are considered worth one-half of men, if that, and female sexuality is viewed as so perilous that women in fundamentalist areas and families must wear oppressive clothing. Moreover, around 140 million women and girls worldwide have their genitals hacked off or otherwise mutilated, the bulk of which female genital mutilation is justified in the name of Islam.
RAMADAN! A SALVATION BONANZA TO US MUSLIMS?
Dear Muslim brethren! When we speak of fasting – the third pillar of Islam, it is impossible for us to separate the month of Ramadan from it. When our discussion centers on Ramadan, it is quite common for us to discuss Ramadan-related rituals, such as the additional prayer called ‘Taraaweeh’, prayed immediately after the usual fifth prayer ‘Ishaa’, and the mid-night prayer ‘Qiyam Al-Lail’, as well as Zakat, Fitra, Lail Al-Qadr, Itikaak, Suhur and Iftaar etc. We cannot separate the month of Ramadan from the third pillar of Islam. In fact the month ‘Ramadan’ should have declared officially the 3rd pillar of Islam. Whatever good religious deeds we do in the blessed month of Ramadan will be rewarded 700 times more by Allah. So, it is very important for us to know more about the sacred month of Ramadan.
We know better because we have already EXPERIENCED it in our homelands.
But they don’t believe us. They act like they know better about Islam just by looking at the smiley faces of Muslims.
Muslims use an endless list of fallacious and silly arguments in their defence of indefensible Islam. Here is a list of those:
‘Out of Context’ Argument
When one raises questions about verses of the Quran or Muhammad’s actions from the hadith, all Muslims—be it mullahs or educated moderate ones—parrot only one thing in defence: ‘You are talking out of context’, ‘please find out under what circumstances Muhammad did so’, ‘there must be some reason for that’ and so on. But they themselves will never try to find out those contexts or circumstances under which Muhammad did so many malicious things, or nonsensical or violence-inciting verses were revealed. And when you show them the context of verses from the tafsirs, which often make Islam appear even more evil and atrocious, they immediately change tune to claim that ‘this verse is allegorical’ and on the worst scenario, they would say ‘this verse is sarcastic’. Just imagine that the creator of the universe is talking in allegorical or sarcastic terms for guiding humanity through His divine scripture.
Military adventure is often the best option for a despotic regime undergoing fiasco.
“The people crave for the destruction of Israel”. This was the slogan of thousands of Muslims who joined a massive demonstration in Al-Azhar Mosque – the spiritual bastion of the "Muslim Brotherhood" in Egypt. It was the first mass anti-Israel demonstration organized by the "Muslim Brotherhood", the party of Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi. However remarkable this event was, it went nearly unnoticed in the mass media.
Although the official reasons given for organizing the event were the detention of Jerusalem Mufti in Israel and the IDF airstrike in Syria, any other minor event could have been a valid motive.
Islam is a religion that stands on lies of the mullahs and ignorance of the Ummah. These two are perfect combination for each other. The former say or write whatever they wish and the later accept them without ever verifying. The Ummah completely rely on the supposed integrity of the Mullahs. Muslims are eager gullibles, who are happy to be fool because they are happy with their idiotic belief. Actually they deceive none but themselves.
They believe that Islam is true, the Quran is divine and Muhammad was a prophet of the Almighty, just because the Quran contains few noble and wise verses which are much fewer than the foolish, nonsensical, morally wrong, scientifically erroneous, and logically pervert ones. Any diabolical person can plagiarize noble thoughts but they fail to plagiarize noble deeds of really great and benevolent persons. Muhammad was such a person, who could steal the wisdom of earlier scripture but he could not emulate did of the old prophets.
Free Speech versus Criminal Hate Speech
The U.S. Department of Justice is waging a very serious challenge to Americans’ constitutional right to Free Speech by trying to criminalize the criticism of Islam utilizing the Civil Rights laws.
Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, was quoted by the Tullahoma News suggesting that some inflammatory material on Islam might run afoul of federal civil rights laws.
"We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected," Killian told the newspaper.
An ex-Muslim, named Ahmed, wrote the following letter to Ali Sina, founder of faithfreedom.org:
Dear Mr Ali Sina,
I am Ahmed. I am writing to you from my friends email id. I thank the power of whatever is ruling this earth that I landed on your website in search of the truth.
I was a God fearing Muslim. As early as when I was 20 years old I had so many questions regarding my religion. Questions like:
a) Why is music not allowed?
b) Why shouldn’t we laugh loudly?
c) Why will Non-Muslims (even very good ones) not be ALLOWED in Heaven and will continue to burn in Hell forever? Aren’t all humans God’s creation? Any creator will love his creation and not discriminate.
His name is Ibrahim Sarsur. He is considered a very moderate Muslim. When one reads about moderate Muslims like him, one can't but wonder what moderate Islam is all about. Here are some narrations about him:
Did Muhammad fear Allah and respect Prayers?
In articles 4A-G in this series, we have studied the various types of prayers in Islam and how they benefited our prophet. Most of Muhammad clever followers understood the motives behind his establishment of the prayers. So they preferred to go Jihad, which brought them wealth and women, than bearing the burden of praying and spending most of their time with Muhammad in his mosque-cum-military camp. Prayers were the traps that Muhammad used to bribe, recruit, and train his follower for Jihad, and finally send them to Jihad expeditions against the non-Muslim tribes. That was his ultimate goal. When a few of his followers really took the prayers as the way of salvation, Muhammad was disturbed by their attitude, and spoke to them openly to advised that they should not be too religious and spend too much time on praying.

I can say with confidence that the only civilization attributed to religion is the so-called “Islamic civilization”. Other civilizations do not base themselves on religion. We do not hear about the “Christian civilization”, the “Jewish civilization” or the “Buddhist civilization”.
When I was a student in the Arab schools, I studied a curriculum module or unit called 'Islamic civilization' which was taught by a Salafist Imam. His whole curriculum was a biography of the Salafists “Ahlu Sunna” group; a group that wants to follow the works of Muhammad’s times and the early Muslims. All we studied was “so and so said...” and “the Shari’a tells us to do such and such...” the whole curricuum was designed for “Islamic brainwashing”. The instructor Imam never gave a smile in his lectures and taught topics that had no relation to civilization For me, this class was “the straw that broke the camel's back” and that led me to go and finish my studies in the lands of the heathens.
The Spanish government approves Imran Firasat’s extradition to Indonesia.
It seems all set that I will suffer death or severe punishment for exposing the truth about Islam. And it is not fanatic Muslims coming to get me and claim my life, say, like the murder of a British soldier on a London street on 23 May 2013. Instead, the stage for my sufferance of death or severe punishment for criticizing Islam has been set by the Spanish government’s Ministry of Interior, which has decided to extradite me to Indonesia for serving punishment for alleged murder charges.
About the horrific public beheading of a British soldier on a London Street to the shouts of “Allahu Akbar” by 2 Muslim men, Ahmed Jama (26), a Muslim, said: "Screaming ‘Allah-hu-Akbar’ and killing innocent people is nothing to do with Islam." Similarly, the Muslim Council of Britain that represents Britain’s 2.5 million Muslims, said in a statement that it was “a barbaric act that has no basis in Islam.” So said David Cameron, Britain’s Prime Minister: “There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.”
But if Islam’s sacred scriptures and its 1400-year-old history are to be given any credence, then the religion of Islam has everything to do with this horrific murder.
In my last article on Friday congregational prayer in this series, we have noticed Muhammad’s struggle to maintain his influence and power over all of his followers. To achieve that he initially forced his followers to say all the five daily prayers at his mosque under his imam-ship. But as he took up arms to engage in jihad wars for subjugate the kafir communities of Arabia, the Muslim community spread far and wide. Under these circumstances, forcing all of his followers, especially those living far away from his house in Medina, to come to his mosque for every prayer became impossible. He, therefore, established the once-in-a-week compulsory Friday prayer, the Jumaa, to be performed in congregation at his mosque.
In continuation on the same topic, let us study the norms Muhammad set for Friday prayers with the sanctification of Allah, and the essence of Muhammad’s khutba sermon. We will also investigate how Muhammad used the weekly Friday prayer occasion to motivate his followers to wage Jihad attacks on non-Muslims in the name of Islam.
In order to keep his hold over his followers, Muhammad initially forced them to say each and every prayer at his mosque under his own Imam-ship, but when that didn't work as his community spread farther and farther from Medina, he invented the once-in-a-week Friday Congregational Prayer, the Jumaa, in order to keep his sway over all of his followers.
Recently, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled that the Biblical Speech Opposing Homosexual Behavior is a ‘Hate Crime’.
Hate is demeaning to human dignity – for both the hater and the hated. Yet, abhorrent as it is, hate speech is not necessarily a criminal act. Hate speech that calls for violence, murdering, terrorizing, enslaving or torturing of any individual or groups is criminal.
This is an excerpt from a letter to Ali Sina from Alan in Sweden, a victim of Muslim assault in Malmo.
In September last year (2012), Muslims demonstrated in Malmö against freedom of speech. I protested and was kicked and beaten by Muslims. And as I ran to police for safety, they arrested me, not my assailants. The assault on me as well as was my detention by police was filmed as can be seen here:
Readers may be bored that the chapter on prayers is getting too long. I’m trying my best to keep the discussion as short as possible. Prayers are the most ruinous requirement of Islam for us Muslims. There are more than 30 different kinds of prayers that were designed by Muhammad for his own benefit and advantage. So, I want to cover it as much as possible in the shortest span.
Prophet Muhammad collected a 1/40th portion of obligatory Zakat, that he imposed on Muslim, to swell his coffer. He collected it even after a Muslim’s death as a condition to lead their funeral prayer. He had received the pending Zakat for the deceased from their kin or friends. This clearly shows: How fond of wealth and greedy Muhammad was!
