Islam is a Belief of Blood

E-mail Print PDF

quran-terrorismFrom Peshawar Pakistan to Nairobi Kenya, from Damascus Syria to Benghazi Libya, Muslims are on a killing rampage. The civilized world is shocked and distressed. Some mutation seems to take place in the humanness of the person the minute he announces his subservience to Islam by reciting the Shahada: "I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger." The individual becomes intolerant, violent and the shedding of blood becomes central to his life.

The Greek had their gods, so did the idolater Arabs before Muhammad appeared on the scene. Muhammad chose a minor idol as god and the only god and elected the name of Allah for him. According to Muhammad, Allah is not only the god; he is the all-everything god, embodying all imaginable attributes that were previously monopolies of different gods of the polytheists.

 

Early non-Muslim Sources Concerning the Advent of Islam

E-mail Print PDF

Preface: This article, whilst a separate piece in it's own right, forms part of my series on Jihad which comprises the articles: Jihad – the four forms and the West, “Greater Jihad”, “Lesser Jihad” and “Jihad in the Way of Allah”, The Pact of Umar and Allah’s war covenant with the Muslims, pt.1, pt.2 and pt.3.

As such this article demonstrates that the attitudes inherent in, and the aims of, Jihad as set out in the previous articles were put into practice from the earliest post-Muhammad period of Islam, which thus provides historical validation of the previous articles.

 

Peeling Back The Layers Of Taqiyah

E-mail Print PDF

Who has not heard of taqiyah? But did you know that it is onion shaped? Taqiyah sounds and means the same as the Sanskrit word thugee from the root sthag. They may be related. The idea behind the taqiyah is to deceive the victim and when he is least prepared overpower him and subdue him. This was also the philosophy of the Indian thugs.

Taqiyah has many layers. The most common form is when Muslims deny that certain Islamic behaviors have anything to do with Islam.

 

Abi Zara – The Role Model of Muhammad as a Loving Husband

E-mail Print PDF

In a hadith, Muhammad says a person named Abu Zara was his "role model" when it comes his love toward his wives. Some rare humility for one, deemed the finest man ever to be born, who never found any other man superior to himself. And Abu Zara and Muhammad as loving husband is concerned -- like 'role model' like 'fan'. Both lustful and heartless toward their wives!

 

‘Greater Jihad’, ‘Lesser Jihad’ and ‘Jihad in the Way of Allah’

E-mail Print PDF

Preface

In a previous article I described the various types of jihad and demonstrated that Jihad encompasses warfare/fighting and terror and indeed this forms the vast majority of “jihadi activity”.

Some Muslim writers and commentators have made the argument that the “real jihad” is all about “battling one's inner demons” as it were and that “real jihad” has little to do with fighting anybody and that when jihad does involve fighting it is only in defence{1} of Muslims and/or Islamic lands.

In this article I intend to extend and amplify the arguments presented in the previous article to show that not only does jihad include fighting, it is sword-jihad that is the primary meaning of jihad and that far from being defensive, it is offensive in nature.

To do that I will use the primary sources of Islam: the Koran, Hadith (in particular the Sahih Hadith of Bukhari and Muslim) and Sharia Law.
