The Most Peaceful Verse

E-mail Print PDF

“...whoever kills a person, it is as if he had killed all mankind. And whoever saves one it is as if he had saved all mankind... ”

This short article discusses verse 5:32 in the Quran, which Muslims commonly quote when debating critics of Islam. Muslim intellectuals and Imams, as well as Western apologists, often quote this verse as evidence to support their false claims that Islam is a religion of peace. The verse is anything but peaceful and shames, not only the Quran, but Islam in general and all those who quote it.

Pity, Pretexts and Prerogatives: Islamists’ Tools for Eating into Our Culture

E-mail Print PDF

America is a nation of immigrants. Our country is probably one of the most tolerant—racially, religiously and culturally—of any nation in the world. Our legal system reinforces this tolerance with laws against discrimination of any kind, and the worst epitaph that can be meted out to someone in this country is calling a racist or bigot. This is America, after all.

So how does the author justify making accusations against Islamists? Why have they become the exception to America’s general tolerance of just about all life-styles, cultures, and racial backgrounds?


Hats off to Egypt

E-mail Print PDF

Egypt is making history again. The events taking place in that country are of extra ordinary significance. The events, which are big in themselves, got even bigger because they are happening in Egypt, which is the heart of the Middle East. With 84 millions, Egypt is by far the largest Arab country. It is also the cultural centre of the Arab world. In the last century, Egypt contributed more to the Arab culture than all the other countries put together. In addition, Egypt has always been a leading Islamic country because it is the home of Al Azhar which is the most prestigious Islamic institute. Also it is the birth place, and the power base, of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), the mother of all Islamic terrorist organizations.

I could not help writing this about a fellow named Mehdi Hassan. He is a blogger, an Al Jazeera journalist, and frequent guest in major media outlets, such as the BBC. Recently after the murder of British soldier Drummer Rigby on a London street by Jihadists, there was debate, hosted by Oxford Union, on the topic, “Is Islam a Religion of Peace?” Mehdi Hassan was one of the participants in favor of Islam.


A Good Reason to Leave Islam

E-mail Print PDF

The history of religion is probably parallel to the history of man; they came to existence together and may disappear together. As humans became more sophisticated, they became more aware of their lack of understanding of life and death. That lack of understanding provided fertile grounds that nurtured gossips and theories of all kinds. With continued human development, people thought of those questions concerning life and death and probably each person formulated his/her own theories and interpretations. Most people were honest enough to keep their own ideas to themselves without forcing it on others because they knew they made it up. Others were not that honest and proposed their own imagination as true answers for those questions surrounding life and the after life. That was the origin of religion and those dishonest people became the guardians of religions; clergymen, priests, ministers, sheikhs etc, you name it.


To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam 5M - Fasting the Third Pillar of Islam: ‘Lailatul Qadr’ Mumbo Jumbo

E-mail Print PDF

In the last two essays (Part 5K & 5L), we have seen lots of confusions about the date of ‘Lailatul Qadr’ or ‘The Night of Power’. The list of confusions is long and continues in this part.


  1. “…the Prophet came and addressed us and said, I was informed of (the date of the Night of Qadr) but I was caused to forget it; so search for it in the odd nights of the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan…” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:233, 235, 252 & 256)

Battle of Badr: Islam at Its Best

E-mail Print PDF

On the 17th of Ramadan of every year, Muslims celebrate Islam’s most blessed and most important day – the battle of Badr, which took place two years after Hijra. From the Muslims’ point of view, the battle symbolized the victory of what is the right (Haq) against what is wrong (Batel), the oppressed against the oppressors, the Muslims against the Kuffar; in short it symbolized the victory of Islam against the enemies of Allah. The Muslim army won the battle and Mohammed emerged as a rising leader in Arabia that every tribe should fear and respect- or else.


To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam 5L - Fasting the Third Pillar of Islam: Lailatul Qadr – A Mambo Jumbo

E-mail Print PDF


My dear Muslim brothers and sisters! In the last part of this article, we found that ‘Lailatul Qadr’ (‘The Night of Power’), i.e. the night on which angel Jibreel (Gabriel) brought Allah’s first revelation of Muhammad in the cave of Heera, thus bestowing Allah’s apostleship upon him, was forgotten by his entire Ummah – even Muhammad himself, his wife Khadijah, earliest coverts Ali, Zayd and Abu Bakr, and even angel Jibreel and Allah Himself. The most important night in Prophet’s life, the most important date in the relationship between Allah and Muhammad, the one night that is better than 1000 months, can be forgotten by Muhammad, the greatest man ever even in terms of memory, and even by Allah, the Creator of Universe. This says a lot about the very character of the Ummah of Islam.


Why Muhammad Was against Idol-worship?

E-mail Print PDF

Muhammad was very impressed by Judaism. His Islam is an Arabized form of Judaism, which he imposed upon the Arabs. He adopted the idea of monotheistic God, ambulation, circumcision, fasting and prohibition of pig meat etc. from Judaism. Jewish Jehovah became his Allah. He also declared Jerusalem as Qibla of his prayers. He had even adopted Jewish Yom Kippur fasting, which he later discarded after discord arose with the Jews of Medina, and replaced it with fasting in Ramadan. He was highly impressed by Moses and adopted his tactic for establishing his kingdom. He was half Jewish in heart.


To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam 5K – Fasting the Third Pillar of Islam: ‘ITIKAAF’ Ridiculous

E-mail Print PDF

Itikaaf is a ritual Muslims observe during the fasting month of Ramadan.


Dear Muslim brothers! While of most of us know what ITIKAAF is, but very few us know about its origin. Prior to Islam, ‘ITIKAAF’ was a practice among the Pagans of Mecca to retire for a stipulated period in the Kaaba temple away from their family in order to devote themselves in remembrance of, and prayer to, the Lord. Muhammad Islamized this practice in the hope of persuading the Pagans to join Islam. And Itikaaf has been observed by Muslim men for the past 14 hundred years as an Islamic ritual during the holy month of Ramadan. The following hadiths give clear evidence that Itikaaf was a ritual of Pagans in pre-Islamic days:

'Umar bin Al-Khattab said, "O Allah's Apostle! I vowed in the Pre-Islamic period to perform Itikaf in Al-Masjid-al-Haram for one night." The Prophet said, "Fulfill your vow." So, he performed Itikaf for one night. (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:248 & 258-259)


Safeguarding the Ka’aba

“The house has a god committed to its protection”  --  Abdul Muttalib, 570 AD

This article sheds some light on chapter 105, otherwise known as ‘surat Al feel’ (Arabic for elephant) which is one of those short chapters at the end of the Quran. Being short, Muslims learn to read those chapters by heart so they can use them in their daily prayers. The entire chapter is dedicated to an event that allegedly took place in Arabia around 570 AD, the same birth year of Mohammed. This sura is another salient example that when the Muslims read the Quran, their brains automatically shut down.

Earth’s rotation is explained by Qur’an 27:88 and 7:54

An article, entitled Aliens Wrote the Quran? Proof It Wasn’t Written by Humans, claims that the Earth’s rotation is explained by Qur’an 27:88 and Qur’an 7:54.

In part I of this series, we have seen that verse 27:88 talks about the eschatological Islamic view of the destruction of the universe and it has nothing to do with the Earth’s rotation. Let us analyze the other verse, 7:54:

Praying on the Streets of Paris: Taking Back What Allah Has Given to Muslims

E-mail Print PDF

On December 12, 2010, French politician Marie Le Pen said on Muslims’ praying on the streets of Paris:

"For those who want to talk a lot about World War II, if it's about occupation, then we could also talk about it (Muslim prayers in the streets), because that is occupation of territory."

"It is an occupation of sections of the territory, of districts in which religious laws apply. It's an occupation."

"There are of course no tanks, there are no soldiers, but it is nevertheless an occupation and it weighs heavily on local residents."

For speaking her mind about a disturbing reality that grips the streets of Western nations, the EU revoked her parliamentary impunity on July 3, 2013 so that she could be prosecuted for hate-crime charges in French Court.


The Qur’an was written by Aliens - I

“Defending Evil is Evil”

The above quote is mine.

One of the interesting sites is a site dedicated to defending Evil. The site claims that the Qur’an was written by aliens.

There are two basic claims about the Qur’an:

  1. The repetitiveness we see in the Qur’an is amazing. It has an embedded code in it that will leave one in awe.
  2. The Qur’an has many scientific miracles in it that makes it impossible to believe that it was written by humans. No, it was indeed written by aliens.
