E-mail Print PDF

The regular readers of Islam-watch and Faithfreedom sites have already read a few superb comics created by 'Abdullah Ibn Abi Sarh. Evidently, all his comics depicting the truth about Islam and Muhammad’s life were outstanding. He is a truth-teller, but in a very special, effective, hilarious, clear and strong language.

 

How the Sikhs Countered the Brutality of Muslim Invaders Turned Rulers in India, Part 1

E-mail Print PDF

Atrocities and excesses by Muslim rulers in India gave rise to the Bhakti movement. Among all the Hindu cults that sprang up from the Bhakti movement, Sikhism earned displeasure and enmity of the Muslim rulers, including the Mughal Emperors, as it contained an element of militancy to save the Hindus from Muslim atrocities and also taking revenge for the same.

 

Are Allah and Muhammad Islamophobes, Mr. Awad?

E-mail Print PDF

Nihad Awad, executive director and founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, declared that the Nairobi Mall Massacre was "An attack on my religion". He also compared the al-Shabaab Muslim Jihadis with Islamophobes by saying:

“The common denominator between the extremists and advocates of Islamophobia (creating fear of Islam) is that both believe that a perverted view of Islam is the foundation of religion.”

 

Will a Ban of the Quran Become a Reality?

E-mail Print PDF

quran-banned-russiaThe idea of a legal ban of the Quran, because of its incitement of hatred, violence and terrorism, may sound incredible today. But trends in recent decades would suggest that it may become a reality in the not-too-distant future.

Calcutta Quran Petition, 1985

It may be said that the modern campaign for a legal ban of the Quran started with a petition filed on 29 March, 1985 in the Calcutta High Court in West Bengal, India, asking the Government to confiscate the Quran—whether in Arabic or any other language. The petition—moved by Chandmal Chopra, advocate of Calcutta High Court, Hamangshu Kumar Chakraborthy and Sital Singh under Article 226 of the Constitution of India—asked the court to direct the State of West Bengal to declare the Quran as forfeited to the government on grounds such as below:

 

Caught up in Jihad Raid? What a Muslim to Do?

E-mail Print PDF

You are a good moderate Muslim living in the land of the kafirs. One day you entered a busy shopping mall. As you are browsing around, suddenly the air is filled with thunderous explosions followed by booms of gunshots. For a moment you don't know what to make of all this. You would perhaps think it is some kind of sinful kafir celebration, or maybe the mall is celebrating its 20th year of operation.

Suddenly the sound of gunshots comes closer and you see hundreds of kafirs are scurrying for cover like the cockroaches – yelling and screaming in fear and terror. You see some of the kafirs get hit by bullets and fall on the floor with blood pouring out of their wounds. For some, heads are blown off, stomachs are torn open.

You wonder maybe a gun-trotting crazy kafir gone berserk again and you start running, risking yourself of being shot by the murderer on rampage.

Then suddenly you hear the screams of “Allahu Akbar” as the murderers unleash their bullets.

Just stop.

 

The Sunnah of Islamic Beard 2 – Copying From the Jews

E-mail Print PDF

The first part of this article—in reference to Major Nidal Hasan’s claim that he grew beard because his Muslim faith required him to do so, not to show disrespect to US Army regulations—listed a number of impractical hadiths, which ‘clever’ Muslims today conveniently ignore or refuse to practice, because of the little bit of commonsense left in them. There are hundreds of such idiotic hadiths scattered in the Islamic sources, which we cannot discuss in detail in a short article like this.

 

Jihadists in Kenya Mall Massacre: ‘All Muslims Leave, We Want to Kill Non-Muslims Only’

E-mail Print PDF

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been made victorious with terror” [Bukhari 4:52:220]

Al-Shabab, a Jihadi Islamist militia from Somalia in an attack, reminiscent of the Mumbai and Boston Marathon Massacres, on a Nairobi shopping mall in Kenya killed 59 and wounding 175. According to eye witnesses, al-Shabab Jihadists targeted only the non-Muslims by declaring: “All Muslims leave, we only want to kill non-Muslims!” Well, that's exactly what Allah teaches Muslims in the Quran [48:29]: "...Those who follow him are harsh to the unbelievers but merciful to one another"

The killing was indiscriminate. They didn't care about whom they murdered, whether women and children.

 

CAIR-FAIL: Analysis of CAIR’s 2013 Report on Islamophobia in the U.S.

E-mail Print PDF

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has released its 2013 report on Islamophobia, titled “Legislating Fear”. The report constitutes one big pity party over the abject failure of CAIR (and other Islamist organizations) to convince Americans that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance. Although the report is 162 pages long, much of it was cut and pasted from their previous 2009-2010 report.

Islam in Action: Father Stones Daughter to Death

E-mail Print PDF

Stoning is integral to Islam, a part of its Sharia Law – the divine constitution of Allah.

The penalty for adultery between a married man and a married woman is 100 lashes with a whip and death by stoning. (Volume 3, Part 3, p. 359)

 

The Doctrine of Sitr

E-mail Print PDF

The word “Sitr” itself is related to the Arabic word for a curtain or a veil, and carries the meaning of drawing a blind over something that is not to be revealed.

The doctrine of Sitr is related to the concept of “Aurah” or “dishonour / shame”.

In simple terms, when a person does something “shameful” or “dishonourable” within the Muslim community, it should be hushed up and only repeated offenders should be brought to (Islamic) justice. This is justified on the grounds that in the Hadith a duty is laid on Muslims to protect each other and each other’s honour.

Sitr developed in a primitive culture where the concept of a crime had not been fully developed into a formalised system. Muslims adhere to Sitr because of their religious belief. But times have surpassed this concept.

 

Islam is Arabic Judaism

E-mail Print PDF

Maimonides states that God is spreading ideals of the Torah to all over world through Christianity and Islam. This is plan of God. This claim of Maimonides finds support in the fact that all of those religions are bent on destroying idolatry.

Jewish patriarch Abraham can be considered the first Jews. And as offspring of his son Ishmael, Muhammad and the Arabs were in essence of Jewish descents, or were brothers of the Jews. Having residing in Arab Peninsula and deviating from Judaism, they become polytheistic Arabs.

 

Story of Uqba’s Mockery of Muhammad and Muhammad’s Cruel Revenge

E-mail Print PDF

Introduction

Uqba ibn Abu Mu'ayt ( عقبة بن أبو معيط‎) (d. 624 AD) belonged to the Quraish tribe. He was a blood relative of the prophet of Islam. He had two children: a boy named Walid ibn Uqba and a girl named Umm Kulthum bint Uqba.

When Muhammad’s mission was not making any headway in Mecca, he started insulting the local polytheistic gods and beliefs. In return, some members of the Quraysh clan started treating Muhammad badly. He was insulting their religions, and when their cup was full, they returned the favor in his own coin.

 

Islam's Degrading Dictates toward Women Entertained in British Court

Islam: The Worst Anti-Woman Ideology Ever

The wearing of the Niqab, a compulsory religious obligation when women go out (Quran 33:59), is an act that is degrading and demeaning for Muslim women, which turns them into subhuman beings. Allah hates and belittles Muslim women, the sheer extent of which can found here. She is the property of her husband, who can rape her (she cannot refuse her husband's sexual demands). If she is raped by another Muslim man, she must produce 4 Muslim male witnesses to incriminate the man. Otherwise she will be guilty of adultery and will be stoned to death.

 

The Sunnah of Islamic Beard – A Few Words to Fort Hood Shooter Major Nidal Hasan

E-mail Print PDF

WHETHER GROWING BEARD HAS ANY DIVINITY?

Few days ago, there was International news about forcible shaving of the beard of the USA Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan, who was sentenced to death for the November 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage, in which 13 people died and 30 were injured. He was born in the USA to Palestinian Muslim parents. He is now around 43 and served 25 years in the US Army.

Major Nidal Hasan began growing a beard after his November 2009 shoot massacre, which caused delays to his court-martial, because it violated the Army grooming regulations. Hasan said he grew beard, because his Muslim faith required it and was not meant as a show of disrespect to US Army regulations.

 

Treaty of Washington 2013: Peace Treaty with the Religion of Peace

E-mail Print PDF

The Quran commands Muslims to fight against the Kuffar until Islamic rule and law is established in every nook and corner of the world. Devout Muslims attacked the United States on September 11, 2001 (9/11) to achieve that divinely commanded goal of Islam. Islam has since kept making inroads into the American life, including the White House, where at least six Muslims serve as advisors for the Obama administration. On the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, let us review what would be the outcome of an Islamic conquest of America today.

 

The Quran: Jesus is God

E-mail Print PDF

Note: This article looks at Jesus from the Islamic perspective. Therefore, and for the sake of arguments, Allah will be considered as God, which is believed by Muslims, although not shared by non-Muslims.

The Islamic perception of Jesus is clear to Muslims of all sects, in fact it is one of the few areas where all Muslims are in agreement. In summary, Islam teaches that Jesus was a prophet with a status second only to that of Mohammed, just like Moses and Abraham. He had different conception and birth from the rest of humans in the sense he had a mother but no father. Allah blessed Jesus with some special miracles, just like he did with the other prophets. The Jews tried to kill Jesus but they didn't, they killed another person who looked like him. Jesus did not die and was taken to heaven, where he is living today.

The Fellowship of the Minds!

"I am convinced about the veracity of my opinions, but I do consider it likely that they may turn out to be incorrect. Likewise, I am convinced about the incorrectness of the views different from mine, but I do concede the possibility that they may turn out to be correct.” — Imam Shafa’i

(This attire has explicit language contents about God Al-Mighty and if found objectionable, then you should not read it with closed eyes but an open mind!)

A man with a glower and a long thick beard was leaving a convenience store when he suddenly felt dizzy and shortness of breath. He hurriedly reached for the wall and slid down against it, then blacked out… Sometime later he woke up and could see nothing, but he felt a distinctly eerie presence!

 

Via-Negativa: The Language of Religious Reasoning

E-mail Print PDF

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." – Aristotle

Many of us have a dim and distant memory of early childhood gaffes with words, of those occasions when you thought you had grasped the meaning of a word only to discover sometimes in a rather embarrassing way that you had got the wrong end of the stick and were using the word in an odd and different way. My wife recalls one such tricky occasion with her use of the word "stoned".
