Why the Birmingham Manuscript is Significant

E-mail Print PDF

The discovery of an old artefact is always a welcome addition to our knowledge since it boosts, or modifies, our understanding of history. From this perspective alone, the discovery of the Birmingham manuscript is significant, but there is more to it.

I first learned about the news when the subject came up as I was visiting some friends after the Eid festival. Most in the room praised Allah for sending regular signals to prove to mankind that Islam is the true religion. I had to leave soon, and as I was leaving, I overheard somebody expressing his disappointment at the news because he assumed all along that we already have the original full Quran of Uthman.


Chattanooga Terrorist Murderer : An Well-educated, Peaceful, Devout Muslim's Sudden Jihadi Turn

E-mail Print PDF

It’s all about Islam – you hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, naive Kafirs!

Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez shot and killed four Marines and wounded another at military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA.

Raised in the US from the age of 7, he was an well-educated electrical engineer having university degree and was from a well-to-do middle-class family.

The media elite immediately went on a crusade desperately seeking reasons for Mohammad's violent self-radicalization from any sources other than his religion, Islam.

A CNN commentator grabbed onto his quote: “My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?”


The During and After Ramadan Scenarios in the Arab World

E-mail Print PDF

Islam's fascinating success as a religion is primarily thanks to its non-Arab followers, who read, pray and practice Islamic terminologies like ‘Alhamdulillah’, ‘Masha Allah’, ‘Subhanallah’, ‘Insha Allah’ in Arabic, an alien language to them. The early Arab conquerors, who were clever politicians too, imposed their ‘religion’ and the Arabic language (only for religious purposes) intentionally on the conquered subjects in non-Arab lands. This policy became an excellent survival tool for their primarily political ‘religion’. Arabic is the ritual language in Islam. Non-Arab Muslims had no choice but to read their holy books (Quran, Hadith etc.) and perform Islamic rituals in Arabic without ever knowing the truth about what lies behind their supposedly peaceful religion.


Ramadan Fasting : An Occasion of Massive Food Wastage by Muslims

E-mail Print PDF

The month of Ramadan fasting for Muslims – An occasion for savoring varieties of delicious food than remember Allah:

Until the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the US by Muslim extremists, non-Muslims around the world used to think Islam as a peaceful religion like any other – still many do although many non-Muslims and even Muslims have changed their mind since. Yet, Muslims have been committing such crimes around the world from the founding days of Islam under Prophet Muhammad to the present day. The explosion of heinous crimes and barbarisms that Muslim extremists have perpetrated against non-Muslims in recent years are awakening people about the dangers of Islam and are starting to see Muslims in increasingly suspicious light. They have been starting to study Islam's sacred texts and historical literature, and exposing the massive cruelties and barbarisms hidden in those documents. The majority Muslims, both the non-practicing moderates and the radicals, instead of looking into their scriptures, charge this critical scrutiny of Islam by non-Muslims as evil Islamophobia.


Ramadan – The Muslim Holy Month to Realize the Pain of Hunger of the Poor

E-mail Print PDF

Muslims say that the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, called Ramadan, is the most sacred for them, especially because of its being the occasion of the month-long fasting in Islam. Many well-meaning and good-hearted non-Muslims too regarded this month with respect as a sign of their respect toward Muslim beliefs. We read stories of how some unaware non-Muslims even keep fast alongside their Muslim neighbors to show their deep respect to the Muslim holy month of fasting. Such instances represent the extent of success Muslims have been able to achieve in fooling well-meaning non-Muslims about their religion. Yet, we must agree that in several aspects, the month of Ramadan is certainly something out of the ordinary – or we must say Muslims have turned it to be so.

In reality, through the month of Ramadan, Muslims have degraded the sacred ancient ritual of ‘Fasting’ by turning it into a child’s play that allows Muslims to fast all day long with a sound sleep, and to feast throughout the night in a festive mood. I was shocked to witness this in Saudi Arabia during my stay there, although the same may not be true for the non-Arab Muslim countries. Please read my previous articles about Ramadan to know the about the entire scenario of the month Ramadan starting from the period of Muhammad until now (see links at the end of this essay). I was astonished to know about the statements of Aisha (Muhammad’s favorite wife) that she never fasted during Ramadan. Likewise, there are a number of shocking information in the hadith about the ‘sacred’ month Ramadan.


Nothing to Do with Islam

E-mail Print PDF

In the immediate aftermath of the massacre of civilians in Tunisia David Cameron, the U.K.'s Prime-minister has once again assured the British public and non-Muslims worldwide that the attack was not carried out “in the name of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace.” The killers, rather, “do it in the name of a twisted, perverted ideology.”

Of course I believe what he says.

It is a great relief to me that I have such an Islamically educated man as the leader of my Country. Perhaps we should call him Mufti sheikh Imam Ayatollah Cameron to reflect his encyclopaedic knowledge of Islam.

You think I'm being sarcastic?



The Qur'an's Mythical Science

E-mail Print PDF

Muslim scholars still claim that the Quran contains numerous scientific miracles. Many Muslims Arabs regard those claims as the most important reason why they accept Islam as the true divine religion.

The term ‘scientific miracle’ is a contradictory expression, just like saying a black white. Science  is based on explanations and calculated results while miracles are unpredictable and unexplainable. However, by claiming the Quran has ‘scientific miracles’, the Muslim scholars only mean that the Quran is correct and in agrees with science. Of course, any book is supposed to be correct but since the Quran is centuries old, Muslims believe it was expected to be wrong, had it been authored by a man.

How did the Issue of scientific miracles come up?

The issue of scientific miracles in the Quran is fairly recent, only about four decades old. There was nothing about this subject in the standard Islamic education as approved by Al Azhar and Arab governments until at least the 1970s. Before that, the Arab Muslims were taught that the Quran has a language miracle, a claim many Arabs didn’t find convincing.



The Quran: Different Modes and Moods in which Muhammad Received Inspirations from Allah

E-mail Print PDF

This article will shed light on the 'various modes’ of receiving revelation by our prophet for our holy book, “The Quran”. It will reveal to the reader about the extent to which our holy prophet played with the innocence of his disciples and subsequent generations of Muslims.

While growing up, we the Muslim kids in our locality used to feel crazy about the month of Ramadan because of its attraction of fasting. Being a young child, aged below ten years, my mom did not like her beloved son to go through the pains of fasting. So she would avoid waking me up for the pre-sunrise meal (suhur) before we start fasting. But I was very adamant about fasting, and one day I kept my fast even without the ‘Suhur’ meal. My mother understood my religious zeal for fasting and gave in, allowing me to fast from the next day. Youngsters like me in the community liked to fast, because it was a matter of high status amongst the peers and also to share the table with the elders during the evening ‘Fatoor’ or ‘Iftaar’ for breaking fast was a matter of pride. My mother never cooked that much varieties of delicacies in the whole year that she used to cook during the fasting month. The same was true for every Muslim family in our community – as if it was more of an occasion of feasting than fasting. Whenever we friends met up during this month, we took pride in discussing about the numerous varieties of delicious foods our moms cooked for the 'suhur' and 'iftaar' parties.


Burning Alive is Islamic

E-mail Print PDF

Recently, the Islamic State (IS) Jihadi group in Iraq and Syria has burnt alive a few prisoners of war and apostates of Islam by gathering them inside a cage before setting it on fire. Many Muslims have expressed shock at such a barbaric practice. They say this is not Islamic. Let us read the Quran, ahadith and Islamic history to find out whether or not Islam allows burning human beings alive.


On the Day of Judgment Allah will sort out the good and the evil; Allah will command to seize and drive the evil-doers into the midst of blazing fire... 44:40

For the unbelievers, garments of fire will be cut out; and boiling water poured over their heads… 22:19


The Monster We Created: Saudi Arabia, Western hypocrisy and the Rise of Islamic Terrorism

E-mail Print PDF

After 9/11, America discovered that most of the terrorists were from Saudi Arabia but pretended not to notice anything. Instead of punishing the Saudis, America attacked Afghanistan and then Iraq.

Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen, the Arabs’ poorest nation, for nearly three months. Yemen’s only fault being its diverse population structure which worked well with them for centuries but the Saudis don’t like it anymore. Tens of thousands have been killed, injured or displaced in the country that didn’t have much to start with. The war on Yemen doesn’t even get reported by the Western media; you have to look hard and search to find something about it.

Saudi Arabia uses the Arab League as a political tool to herd the rest of the Arab states. It asked the Arab League to suspend Syria, a founding member of the league, in an unprecedented move in the history of the organisation. In a similar way, the Saudis use the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which they created, to herd the Islamic world.

It is common knowledge that nearly all terrorist Islamic organisations enjoyed the financial or political support of Saudi Arabia, or both, yet it has never been blamed for it.


The Real 5 Pillars of Islam

E-mail Print PDF

Muslims claim that Shahada (Testimony to the faith), Prayer, Fasting, Hajj, and Zakaat are the five primary pillars of Islam. But from dictates of the Quran and the actions of prophet Muhammad as well as actions of Muslims throughout history, the following are true five pillars of Islam:

  1. Jihad Terrorism: Murdering Kafirs Guaranteeing Accession To A Virgin Delight Paradise

  2. Sex Slavery/Rape

  3. Subjugation of Muslim/Kafir Women

  4. Child Molestation

  5. Booty

Oppression by Diet Coke Denial - The Lies of Tahera Ahmed

E-mail Print PDF

tahera-ahmed-diet-coke-oppressionDiana Dempsey, a fellow passenger onboard the same United Airlines flight that allegedly oppressed and discriminated Tahera Ahmed by allegedly denying her an unopened Diet Coke, has a very different account of the incident (from Pat Condell Appreciation Group on Facebook):

"I was actually on this flight on Friday evening from ORD to DCA. I have been a reader of this forum for a long time but seeing this all over the news made me sign up so I could tell you what really happened here and hopefully stop this liar in her tracks. I was sitting close enough to her tohear everything that was said.

The flight attendant came up to the lady (I believe she even took her order first in the entire cabin as she was seated in the bulkhead 7d) and took her order.

She ordered a coke zero and a hot green tea with a Splenda. The flight attendant handed her a full diet coke with a cup on top and then told her that the green tea would take a few minutes and she would get it to her ASAP.

The lady said very rudely and condescending to the FA that she ordered a coke zero and basically pushed the soda back to the flight attendant. The FA said she was sorry and attempted to find a coke zero for her (which she did not have many of) and told her that she could only give her a portion of the can not the full can.


Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) and Muhammad's Magical Cow

E-mail Print PDF

surah baqarah (cow), prophet-muhammad-magical-cowThe Quran tries to bluff anyone who doubts that it is the verbal word of God: “If you doubt what We have revealed to you, ask those who have read the Scriptures before you.” (Surah 10:94)

If this were an honest statement, why the distribution of the Bible is banned in the following countries according to Gideons International:

  1. Afghanistan,

  2. Algeria,

  3. China (People's Republic),

  4. Comoros,

  5. Djibouti,

Impowerment of Women in Islam: Islamic Propaganda about the Pre-Islamic Arab Practice of Burying Daughters Alive

E-mail Print PDF


As stated earlier, gullible Muslims around the world celebrates Muhammad as the liberator of women. The most important propaganda in this regard is that he rescued female babies from being buried alive by their parents.

While there is some truth in this propaganda, but Muslims blow it out of all proportions.

In the distant past, some societies (India, China etc.) used to practise infanticide as a means of population control. Female infanticide was more common especially in male-dominant societies, because women did not participate in economic activities and were considered an economic burden. Unfortunately, even today, female infanticide exist in some countries albeit at much less frequencies.

The pre-Islamic society of the Arab desert too practiced infanticide due to famine. There are multiple references in Islamic scriptures, referring to the Arabs' practice of infanticide that included both male and female infanticide. In pre-Islamic Arabia, women were not absolutely equal to men, but were relatively free and independent. They used to participate in business, ride camels, travel alone without any male escort, were allowed to buy slaves and were free to choose their life-partners without the help of a male guardians. It is Muhammad who snatched their freedoms from the Arab women and enslaved them under the male dominance. Muhammad brought their social status down to the level of domesticated animals.


Islam Is Idolatry

E-mail Print PDF

I had a discussion with a Muslim who argued, “Muslims don’t worship black stone of Kaba. They worship only Supreme God, Allah. Black stone is foundation stone of Ka’ba. It is not idol.” He then went on berating Hindus for worshipping animals and statues and called me misguided. Here is my reply.

Every building rest on a foundation and before the invention of concrete all buildings were made of stone and they had at least four corner stones. However no one circumambulates around them touches them and kiss them. The Islamic ritual of hajj is stone worship, the most primitive form of idolatry.


Jihad Attack on Garland Muhammad Art Exhibition and Media's Cowardly Attack against the Brave Defenders of Freedom

E-mail Print PDF

muhammad-cartoon-bosch-fawstinRightfully the greatest defenders of freedom were the generation that fought the Nazis during Second World War. They came from farms, towns, villages, cities—aged 17, 18, 19 and so on—to sacrifice their lives to save our civilization from the threat of the fascistic and racist Nazi dictatorship. Furthermore, after that great victory, these patriots were immediately plunged into defending the freedom of Western Civilization from the totalitarian ideology of Communism.

Today our freedom and democracy are under threat from the fascistic and murderous 1400-year-old ideology of Islam that seeks to destroy all religions, conquer all nations, subjugate or murder all kafirs who refuse to convert to Islam, and destroy all democratic constitutions and freedoms, replacing them with the totalitarian Sharia Law.

In the face of this grave new threat, new brave defenders of freedom have emerged to defend Western Civilization and preserve democracy and freedom. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Wafa Sultan, Brigette Gabriel, Geert Wilder, Pamella Geller, Robert Spencer, and Bill Warner are to name few among those brave new fighters. These brave men and women risk their lives in the defence of liberty so that our children, the future generations, can enjoy living their life as free citizens with full equality, and right to 'Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness'.


The Quran: Multiple Authors and Multiple Languages

E-mail Print PDF

Unlike the hadith collections, which were subjected to thorough scientific scrutiny by different scholars in different places and at different times, the Muslims never subjected the Quran to any form of scientific examination. On the contrary, they are warned against it because scientific studies are based on doubts, which is unacceptable to Muslims who are not supposed to have any doubts about the Quran. It is essential in Islam not to doubt the divine origin of the Quran and its preservation by Allah himself. To boost their confidence, Muslims learn to recite this verse as evidence of Allah’s promise to protect his book from corruption:

Q. 15:9 “it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian”


Empowerment of Women in Islam? False Propaganda Galore!

E-mail Print PDF


Islamic propaganda machine succeeded largely in its mission of shadowing the evils of Islam and its prophet. This has unfortunately continued for the past fourteen hundred years. It got a bit of hammering since the invention of the internet. Thanks to our scientists, internet has provided us the opportunity to understand the deceptive political ideology of Islam hiding behind the religious mask.


Turkey's Armenian Genocide: A 20th-century Islamic Holocaust

E-mail Print PDF

April 24, 2015 will be the 100th anniversary of one of the worst human massacres in history: The genocide of the Armenian Christians by the Islamic Ottoman Empire.

Much will be written about this cruel tragedy on its 100th aniversary but few will declare that this was a holy act of Jihad for the Muslim Ottoman Turks, inspired by dictates of the holy Quran and Sunna of Prophet Muhammad. Ürgüplü Hayri, the Shaykh al-Islam of the Ottoman Caliphate, issued a fatwah in November 1914 saying: “The massacre of unbelievers who rule over us whether they are found in public or private places is now our duty, as it is said in Allah’s words, ‘Take them and kill them wherever you find them.’”

The foundation for the massacre was laid out by the Prophet of Islam in the year 627 AD through the Massacre of Banu Quraiza Jews, beheadeding 700 to 900 men and boys. What makes Muhammad's massacre of the Jews worse than Hitler's is that Muhammad utilized alleged sanction from Allah to carry it out, which is laid out in the Quran (33:26): “And He brought those of the People of the Scripture who supported them down from their strongholds, and cast panic into their hearts. Some ye slew, and ye made captive some.
