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.
Itikaaf is a ritual Muslims observe during the fasting month of Ramadan.
ITIKAAF - A PAGAN RITUAL
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)
“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.
Beginning in the fall of 2014, the United Kingdom will require all British schoolchildren to complete a unit on the history of Islam, proudly reports Press TV, Iran’s 24-hour English language news organization.
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:
In this article, I will discuss in full the issue of fasting for Muslim women, our Muslim sisters, who are the most deprived specious on earth.
RAMADAN FAST IS FOR ALLAH (OTHER ISLAMIC DEEDS FOR SATAN?)
Dear Muslim sisters! Muhammad says on behalf of his puppet Allah, fasting is the only rituals he expect from his slaves for them to attain salvation and that Allah will deal directly with his ‘slaves’ with regards to Ramadan fasting.
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.
“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:
- The repetitiveness we see in the Qur’an is amazing. It has an embedded code in it that will leave one in awe.
- 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.
Eating, drinking and smoking at all public places in Islamic countries during fasting hours in the so-called ‘holy month of Ramadan’ are prohibited to ensure the sanctity of fast of pious Muslims, who observe the ritual.
In the previous two articles (5G & 5H), we have compared the fasting spirits—Jesus vs Muhammad, and Modern Muslims vs Sahaaba, respectively. In this article, let us investigate the fasting spirit of our incomparable prophet, the greatest Prophet of God, and one and the only ‘perfect’ Muslim and human being ever to be born.
FASTING OF MUHAMMAD – THE FUNNY SIDE
While Muhammad’s character is filled with too many negatives, the worst tyrant sometimes shows a sense of humor in their words and deeds. Some of Muhammad’s sayings and actions on various issues too would have made people laugh. Actually, there were many occasions on which he made his followers laugh. Unfortunately, the Mullahs try their best to hide those hadiths from us, thus depriving us a little bit of fun that Islam offers. Here, I have picked one such entertaining hadith from the chapters of fasting.
Narrated 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle used to fast till one would say that he would never stop fasting, and he would abandon fasting till one would say that he would never fast… (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:190 & 192)
How the Jihadis mercilessly vandalized the gentle pre-Islamic Berbers of North Africa – Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and transformed them eventually into bloodthirsty aggressors who would soon vandalize Spain (640-711)
The Berbers were the ancient indigenous people of North Africa west of Egypt. They were made up of many tribes, but they managed to maintain their culture, their Hamitic languages, and considerable military power during successive invasions of their land. In ancient times, North Africa had been colonized by the Phoenicians (who became the Carthaginians), they were followed by the Romans, the Vandals (one of the Germanic tribes that destroyed the Roman Empire), the Byzantines, and finally the Arabs. Other foreigners, notably Greeks and Jews, also ruled parts of ancient North Africa at different times.
In part 1 of this article, we have analyzed the facts about why our Muslim women are not free to fast for their god ‘Allah’. In part 2, we have discussed about the disgraceful status Islam has accorded to Muslim women. In this final part, I will analyze further about Muslim women’s inability to oblige to the orders of Allah and who is playing in-between them and their God?
The Canadian Government is proclaiming a new law that would ban:
"Promoting Terrorism, Violence, or Criminal Activity: A foreign national who makes public statements or uses any means to broadcast, write, produce, publish or distribute material, including a website and public speaking, to express views which:
- (a) promote or glorify terrorist violence;
Being itself a collection of myths, it comes as no surprise that the Quran endorses various kinds of myths and folk tales. The existence of Jinn, Angels, the Jinx, the belief in magic and the random interpretation of dreams are only some of those fables endorsed by the Quran. None of this folklore was invented by Islam; they have been known by ancient nations for centuries. But humanity moved on and dismissed those as nonsense old folk-tales. However, it is impossible for Muslim societies to make such a forward move, because Allah’s words in the Quran have sanctified them as truth. So, as per Islam, there is nothing wrong with those myths; they are as real as their own existence. After all, Muslims believe there is nothing in the Quran that can be disputed or doubted, it is absolute truth.
This article focuses on the interpretation of dreams, based on my own experience in the Middle East. I suspect that other Muslim societies are no different as far as belief in such myths and nonsense is concerned.
“Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.” -- Socrates
My second book, The Allah Delusion, is available for order via online stores. In my first book, Islam Dismantled: The Mental Illness of Prophet Muhammad, I had critically examined the claims of Muhammad’s prophethood and found them inadequate. In the present book, I have argued that today science has advanced sufficiently to be able to make a definitive judgement on the existence or nonexistence of Allah. In this book, I disapprove not just the idea of Allah as a God but also the respect for the belief in Allah.
While keeping fast, kissing, sucking tongues, having sex -- all was OK for the Prophet and the Sahaaba. But will we modern Muslims dare do likewise?
This latest revolution in Egypt, the second in the last two years, is a symptom of a deep-rooted problem at the heart of Islam itself: Egypt is on the verge of a civil war to bring a resolution to the never-ending tension between what Islam demands versus what the people really want.
This is the central problem in most Muslim countries: the difficult choice between a civilian, military "infidel" government, and a totalitarian Islamic theocracy. The problem is compounded when most Egyptians consider themselves both Muslim and lovers of democracy, but refuse to see that Islam and freedom cannot co-exist. How can Islam anywhere produce a democracy when freedom of speech and religion are outlawed, where there is no free and independent judiciary, and equal rights for women, minorities and non-Muslims are legally suppressed?
Dear Muslim sisters! In Part 1 of this article, we have come across many ‘golden sayings’ of our noble prophet about Muslim women. Those sayings make it crystal clear that your status in Islam is not only lower than men, but also as low as or even lower than domestic animals. The troublesome issue of women in Islam is endless. We can’t cover it all in a few short articles. So, I will keep this discussion brief touching only a few points and complete it in three parts, leaving an earnest request to my Muslim sisters to spend some of your time to study Islamic scriptures on your own in order to know your real status in Islam.
PRIVILEGE FOR MUSLIM MEN IN SEX
Muhammad’s imaginary brainchild Allah the most Gracious has allowed Muslim men to marry up to four wives. If they desire for the pleasure of new flesh even after having four wives, they can just dismiss one by uttering ‘talaq’ three times and bring in a new one. In addition, Muslim men can have slave-girls as many as they want to spice up their sex life.
DIRECT REWARDS FOR FASTING MUSLIMS FROM ALLAH
This title would have shocked both the Muslims and ‘infidels’. But it is true as per recorded Islamic sources. I dedicate this multi-part article to the liberation of all women, of my Muslim sisters in particular.
Dear Muslim Sisters! Allah specifically says that the observance of fasting by Muslims is entirely for Him and He will give rewards directly without the interventions of any one (!) (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:128).
