The Islamic Threat to Britain's Open Society

E-mail Print PDF

Author Tufail Ahmad explains how London may look like Islamabad half a century down the line:

For several hundred years, people have thought of Britain as the epitome of modern civilisation and land of Enlightenment that gave rule of law, individual freedom and democracy to the world. In early decades of the 21st century, this image is being eroded, as pockets of Britain are being transformed into isolated enclaves, administered by Islamic clerics associated with different mosques and madrassas.

The Darul Uloom madrassa in the village of Chislehurst, modelled after India’s Darul Uloom Deoband, seeks to produce “an Islamic elite who will rule the Muslim world” — as reported by British Indian journalist Edna Fernandes, who also reported that music, drama and modern foreign languages are deemed un-Islamic and Shakespeare is seen as evil for dealing with subjects like love and revenge. Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam of Darul Iftaa, an Islamic institute in Leicester, delivers fatwas such as: driving a taxi is forbidden by Islam because it may entail taking passengers to a pub. Such fatwas impinge on individual freedom, a fundamental basis of modern societies.

For the Love of Zaynab, Adoption Banned in Islam

E-mail Print PDF

The holy prophet of Islam did many shameful things, which are well documented in authentic early Islamic sources, namely the Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira. I was aware of many of his shameful acts, not of fact that he even had married his son's wife. Not only that, through this process, Muhammad eliminated an age-old noble tradition of adoption, which the Arabs had been practicing before the advent of Islam.

A few years ago, my wife and I became adoptive parents. We adopted a few children from our locality, who needed a safe and loving home to grow up in. This was a decision in my life that I will never regret about. We became the family of those kids in unfortunate situation. They are now our kids; we have a multi-racial family with love for every one. They have a safe haven, and a conducive environment for grooming a good future.

This most satisfying event in my personal life also made me curious to research what Islam says about adoption. I was shocked by my finding. Please do not trust what Islamists of our day write about adoption, which are just lies or deceptions, designed to show Islam in a better light than it is. No Muslims will deny the following verses of the Qur’an:

Allah has not made for a man two hearts in his interior. And He has not made your wives whom you declare unlawful your mothers. And he has not made your adopted sons your [true] sons. That is [merely] your saying by your mouths, but Allah says the truth, and He guides to the [right] way. (Quran 33:4-5, Sahih International trs.)


An Assessment of Rageh Omaar’s BBC Series ‘The Ottomans: Europe’s Muslim Emperors’

E-mail Print PDF

This was an interesting series which told me a few things I did not already know about a neglected subject. Overall, however, it is misleading. Omaar is clearly not an ignorant man. So the deception can only be intentional and consists largely of what he leaves out.

He shows us a historical reenactment in Sogut in Bithynia which was the centre of the Ottoman tribe by about 1300 and the “cradle” of the Ottoman Empire. He does not mention the indigenous population round about however, the Greek speaking, Christian majority and the misery which these Turkic speaking Muslim intruders inflicted on them. The Koran makes it clear that all good Muslims are obliged to make war on infidels wherever they are found (Sura 9) and that any plunder taken is the holy warrior’s just reward for chastising the enemies of Allah. This duty the Ottomans and other species of Turk, those of Danishmend etc. pursued with enthusiasm. Every year from the later 13th century, Turkish horsemen swept down the valleys of Western Asia Minor to destroy the harvest, slaughter the infidel Greek peasants, desecrate their churches and help themselves to any plunder that took their fancy. This last category would include the infidel women who, in Muslim eyes, were fair game. Robert Liddell, in his book “Byzantium and Istanbul” states: “Rape was so much a law of war that the canons forbade a husband to put away a wife who had been defiled by an enemy.” Muslim men in Britain who prey on “Kaffir” girls, i.e. non Muslim girls must be seen as a 21st century continuation of this Islamic tradition; infidel parents of infidel daughters please note. Some mealy mouthed individuals have frantically attempted to represent this activity as just part of the general decline in morals in this country and not associated with any religion or culture in particular. These are just Anglo-Saxon platitudes and betray these babblers’ lack of moral courage. We have seen that the British have not had the moral courage to help the Canadians celebrate the two hundredth anniversary of the defeat of the American invasion of their country during the War of 1812.


The Islamic Model of Loots or Spoils of war

E-mail Print PDF


The dictionary defines loot as goods or objects pillaged at times of war, also called the “spoils of war”. Muhammad used to attack others and obtain loots. His share of the booty or loot was a 20% cut (called the “Khums” in Arabic). In this article, I discuss how Muhammad used to obtain this “holy” 20% share, and distribute the rest of the loot to his Muslim followers.

The Qur’an sanctifies obtaining wealth by attacking others

The Qur’an, the supposed “holy book” of Muslims, not a manual for gangsters, does have a Sura in it, called “Al Anfal”. “Al Anfal” literally translates as “Spoils of war”. The Sura came down as a “revelation” to Muhammad to give him divine guidance on how to distribute the plunder he obtained from the Quraish victorious Battle of Badr in 624 AD.


Islam and Lebanesization of Europe: Lessons from the Soviet Union

E-mail Print PDF

The nations of the former Soviet Union experienced the grim consequences of social experiments on their own skin. Western Europe is next.

Marxist dogma suggests that "national question" should be resolved by

  1. "erasing national differences" and the affirmation of internationalism and
  2. the artificial implantation of language and culture of the carrier of the "progressive ideology".

According to Lenin, "international culture of the global labor movement" should be solely based on the great historic culture of Russia.


Safiyya and the Rape Charge against Muhammad

E-mail Print PDF


Muslim apologists dispute the rape charge against Muhammad when it comes to his sex act with Safiyya bint Huyay. In this article, I quote from a Muslim apologist site and show that even quoting certain selected hadiths to defend Muhammad from the charge of rape of Safiyya does not work.


Evolution as Science vs the Intellectual Hypocrisy of Creation Theory

E-mail Print PDF

(Updated: 2014)

evolutionFor thousands of years, scientists were searching for answer to the mystery of biological origin on our planet, because scientists could not quite accept incoherent religious folklore stories of “Creation Theory” fed by ancient Prophets. Then came the great genius, Charles R. Darwin, a naturalist, born in England on February 12, 1809. Charles Darwin gave us the revolutionary and most acceptable theory of creation, called the “Theory of Evolution”. Darwin explained his theory in his book “On the origin of species” in 1859, detailing the theory of evolution of the biological world by the process of variation, reproduction and natural selection.


Was Muhammad a Rapist?

E-mail Print PDF


Many critics accuse Muhammad of being a rapist by citing certain sex incidents of his from the hadiths and Sira, but Muslims reject such accusations by claiming that those incidents do not qualify to be rape. In this article, I discuss the issue of Prophet Muhammad being a rapist. To keep the article brief, I will cite the cases of three women whom Muhammad had captured and used for sex.


Modifying My Belief

E-mail Print PDF

Egypt Independent has published a testimony of former Muslim Brotherhood member and writer Osama Dorra of how he has resolved to desert Islam as religion from his life:

Osama-dorraI decided to deactivate my practice of Islam as a religion because the “cognitive dissonance” between some of its details and what I think is rational, just and logical has reached a limit that is beyond my comprehension.

I have resolved to reduce the status of Islam to a “cultural reference” that sets the tone for my morals, until I find another reference, or adopt it again as a religion.

The Arab Spring has shaken our confidence in what we were like before revolutions. It has become clear that the assumptions upon which we built our lives were not all sound, the institutions that led us were not all efficient or honest, and the people we thought highly of were not all worthy of that praise.

Death of Noble Abdullah bin Ubayy and the Extreme Meanness of Prophet Muhammad

E-mail Print PDF

Curious readers of the Quran, Sunna and Sira know the extent of Muhammad’s terrorizing and horrific actions recorded by devout Muslim scholars themselves. Many such incidents were carried out by Muhammad himself; countless others on the behest of his orders. Many inhuman acts of Muhammad would fill readers with shame and sadness and make them wonder: Could a human be mean to such an extent? This article will narrate one among many such incidents that should make every human being shocked, saddened and ashamed of beastly personality of Muhammad. But for the cruel prince that Muhammad was, it is just one more feather in his cap.



Hey Germans! Muhammad Was a Big, Bad Wolf, Not a ‘Prophet of Peace’

Germany Adds Lessons in Islam in Schools to Better Blend Its Melting Pot


Germany has a long history of creating fantastic fairytales. It was the Brothers Grimm, who catalogued such great fairytales as Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood and many more.

The elites of Germany have now embarked on the creation of two of the ever-greatest fairytales in history – that (1) Islam is a ‘religion of peace’, and (2) Muhammad was a ‘prophet of peace’.

Schools in Germany will now teach Islam to primary school students starting in the first grade to better integrate Muslims into German society.


Did The Qurayza Massacre Really Happen?

E-mail Print PDF

Walid N. Arafat wrote a provocative article entitled "New Light on the Story of Banu Qurayza and the Jews of Medina" in 1976 for the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland. After outlining the Ibn Ishaq version of the story, Arafat offers this interpretation: "On examination, details of the story can be challenged. It can be demonstrated that the assertion that 600 or 800 or 900 men of Banu Qurayza were put to death in cold blood can not be true; that it is a later invention; and that it has its source in Jewish traditions. Indeed, the source of the details in earlier Jewish history can be pointed out with surprising accuracy" (Arafat 1-2). Three years after Arafat's article appeared, Barakat Ahmad, an Indian Muslim, wrote Muhammad and the Jews: A Re-Examination in which he suggests the Muslims beheaded only 16 or 17 Qurayza leaders while the rest were taken captive.


Collection of Hadiths on Muhammad’s Pedophilia

E-mail Print PDF

This is a collection of authentic Hadiths on Muhammad’s pedophilia. The list is probably not complete. Readers are invited to post in the comments section other hadiths (with reference please) related to Muhammad’s pedophilia that I have missed. I will later add them into the original file.


The Mindset of Muslims

E-mail Print PDF

Muslims never read the Quran from start to finish with the unprejudiced mind and intent to understand its message. If they do, it will become clear to them that this so-called holy book is not from God, but a fabrication of an evil person and is filled with absurdities and violent incitements. They live in a blissful garden of ignorance, where all their questions are choked by lack of interest to think hard about it. There, they don’t have to think. All they have to do is just believe.


An Open Letter to the God of Islam

E-mail Print PDF

infidelIt is axiomatic that to be a Muslim you must: believe in Allah by taking him as your one and only lord, accept Muhammad as Allah’s beloved messenger and take the Quran as a literal work of Allah and a perfect prescription for living.

Hard as I tried, I had a terrible time being a Muslim right at the entry level. I, therefore, decided to write this open letter in the hope of receiving some satisfactory answers to the many questions that trouble me greatly.


Sadaqa – Islamic Charity for the Poor and the Evil Mind of Muhammad

E-mail Print PDF


Islamic Scriptures, such as Quran and the six ‘Sahih Siththa’ (authentic) hadith collections are the Pandora Boxes to know all about Muhammad’s nasty character and intentions. He was the greediest founder of a religion ever lived. He was always after money, sex and power. He was well aware that achieving unholy and immoral goals would require the power of wealth. So, he sought every opportunity to grab the wealth of others by all kinds of unholy means and manners.

Though there are several hadiths on this issue, the following single hadith will suffice to get a measure of the greedy aspect of Muhammad’s character:


‘Peace Be Upon Him’ and Question of Muhammad’s Salvation

E-mail Print PDF

Recently Pakistan banned Malala Yousufzai’s book after Islamists complained about her not mentioning “Peace be upon him” after Prophet Muhammad’s name in the book, which they consider anti-Islamic.

This Muslim tradition of mentioning “Peace be upon him” every time they cite Muhammad in word or writing has confused me for a long time. Does that mean that Muhammad has not achieved salvation yet?


Understanding Terrorism

E-mail Print PDF

Most people think terrorism is a new phenomenon since the term terrorism was only recently used a lot in the media. But actually it's much older than that. The term was first used in 1795 during the French Revolution, but that's not a good way to figure out how old the phenomenon is. I mean, just because a word is 200 years old doesn't mean that the idea the word refers to is 200 years old.

What is terrorism?
