Former Muslim’s Warning To The West: ‘Islam Is A Sick And Evil Religion’ That Will Stab You In The Back


Why get it from the likes of David Cameron when you can get it straight from the horse’s mouth? Although this former Muslim’s English may be a bit broken, his message comes through loud and clear …

SIOTW – “I was born and raised as Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim. I know every genetic code of Muslim. I know [the] Islamic brain. I live and breath with them. I am an insider. I left Islam when I understood that Islam is a sick and evil religion. The following are the Islamic message to the West.

To the infidels of the West:

The Constitution for the new Islamic Republics of EuroArabia and AmerIslamia is under construction.

We will fight the infidel to death.

Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.

We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.

We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interest than US interest.

We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from the very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with Infidel. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyr. We will take over the Europe first and then US will be the next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the US.

Our children will marry Caucasian in Europe and in America. We will mixed with intricate fabric of the Western society but still will remember to Jihad when time comes. Who are we?

We are the ‘sleeper cells‘.

We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad only. Everything else is secondary.

At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine,… Imagine the news in the world ‘Death of Muslim babies by infidels‘.

We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wildfire. ‘Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies’. ‘Jews killed two women’,

Keep your Nukes in your curio cabinets. Keep your aircraft carrier or high-tech weaponry in the showcase. You can’t use them against us because of your own higher moral standard. We will take the advantage of your higher moral standard and use it against you. We won’t hesitate to use our children as suicide bomber against you.

Visualize the news flash all over the world, …Moslem mother is sobbing, ….crying. ….Her babies are killed by Jews and Americans, the whole world is watching live. Hundreds of millions of Muslims all around the world are boiling. They will march through Europe. We will use our women to produce more babies who will in turn be used as armor/shield. Our babies are the gift from Allah for Jihad.

West manufactures their tanks in the factory. We will manufacture our military force by natural means, by producing more babies. That is the way it is cheaper.

You infidels at this site cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion. We will double again. Do you have enough bullets to kill us?

On the camera:

You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next-door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite, humble that will make you say, ‘wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people’, But, we will stab you in your back when you are sleeping as we did on 911.

There will be more 911 in Europe and in America. We will say, ‘We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.’

Muslims, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftist, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have to then even with France. Fasten your seatbelt. The war of civilizations has just begun.

We will recite Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar before beheading infidels, as we have been doing it. We will video tape those and send it to all infidels to watch. They will surrender – ISLAM means surrender.

We will use your own values of kindness against you.

You are destined to loose.” Source – Stop Islamization of the World.

    Christian world needs to stop pointing venomous fingers at the Muslim world. Starting with the Crusades, the Inquisition, the wholesale slaughter of native Americans, the religious wars in Europe…Christianity hasn’t exactly been a shiny example. Islam teaches women are free and empowered individuals that are equal before God (one of the reasons why Muslim women not required to change surname after marriage i.e. they are not considered chattel). ‘Hijab’ is actually applicable to both believing men and women who are requested to cover their shapes when in public.

    Quran states ‘there is no compulsion in religion’ i.e. you can’t force people in to belief. p.s. Muslims can marry people of other monotheistic faiths. Around 5,000 British people convert to Islam every year – and most of them are women. No wonder people are fed up with their so-called Western life style. But in fact most of the Western converts to Islam are women, which is the clearest affirmation of how well women are treated (contrary to the widely perceived images spread by certain segments of the media).

    The fear of Christians converting to Islam has haunted the Church ever since the times when missionaries were sent to the Holy land to convert Muslims to Christianity but never came back. Instead they converted to Islam and stayed, drawn in no doubt by the fact that they could be spiritual and enjoy a good standard of living at the same time. If Islam did not cherish women, I don’t think these intelligent women would convert. You need to got beyond the stereotype of Women in Islam

    According to Islam; they are reverts. Nothing much to do with Christianity or Judaism; but the belief that all children are born in to Islam, but raised differently by their parents; hence those who accept Islam are merely reverting back to their original faith. Secondly; unlike other religions; Islam has no problem accepting other beliefs and religions as a different path to the same one God. After all God sent 124000 prophets since Adam; and they were all before Islam; Muhammad(PBUH) was the last amongst them. Islam is a continuation of the original beliefs; so it is not wholly shocking to say there are similarities to the bible/ to rah. It would be more surprising if there weren’t any; considering Islam accepts that they were the true faith for their time; however it was they that became distorted overtime; and Islam came to rectify that.

    Islam offers inner quietness and solace to over a billion people, influencing countless households to try to live decent lives. It also offers a balance against crass materialism, encourages care for older relatives, a sense of identity beyond mere individualism. I see beauty and admirable idealism in the devotions of Muslim colleagues, and patients. I see the love of Muslim families at times of crisis. In the mosque, in women’s circle, I can almost feel the relief and the stillness at the centre of my being. This faith matters hugely to so many people. Am I so important that I should deride them?

    One thing those who write against “conversion” do not realize is that those converts found out how false was all that propaganda against Islam. I’ll give two very clear examples. Someone is wondering “I have always wondered how convert women reconcile the dogma of the faith …. Here are some koranic verses on women” then quotes false reading of the Quran. Anyone who read the Quran will find out. The commenter quotes verse 4:15 which was a temporary ruling in a gradually built new society. But the commenter ignores the final ruling in Verse 24:2 which mentions explicitly men and women in equal terms for adultery punishment.

    The commenter mentions “Two female witnesses equal one male witness: in verses:282”. This verse deals with some financial dealing and the main concern is justice and has to take in account how familiar witnesses are with that case. The Quran in other cases does not differentiate, Verses 24:6 – 24:9 which handles the case when a women is accused by husband of adultery, when both give, in exactly same way, opposite testimonies, the women word will be taken.

    In Islam, I would like to tell that we don’t have any conflicts between science and our religion. On the contrary, many of new science theories proves that our holy book ‘Quran’ must be from Allah, this is because it tells us with science facts that has been discovered only recently. Although Quran is from 14 centuries, it has many signs that earth is spherical, in addition is has signs about the Big Bang theory of the universe creation, in addition it has many science facts about the stages of women pregnancy and how the child is created, and a lot of other things that tell us that the Quran must be from the God.

      It must hurt to see that a fraction of us is not fooled by your so called religion. This text is so right on, it hurts, you cannot lie anymore, we know who you are, what you think, and we are now judging the book by its cover, evolution and consciousness will not allow you to take over.

      Iftakar: Muslims, and Islamist always bring up the Crusades: Three things about that;

      One. the Crusades were actually a response to Islam taking over Jerusalem, buthering non-believers, raping their women, and invading Southern Europe as far as Venice, and all of Spain.

      Two. It was 500 + years ago, Islamic butchery is happening now.

      Three. Jesus taught to you love you’re enemies, and nothing in the New Testament teachings of Christ teaches Christians to take slaves, rape non-believers, or cut off the heads of infidels. He was a pacifist who gave his own life for human’s salvation. ~~~ Mohammad was a warrior, earthly prince, rapist, slave trader, pedophile, and murderer. Then they based a religion on his example, that mandates that everyone, not just Muslims submit or die.

    Those British women who were reverted to Islam have studied Islam thoroughly. They did not become Muslim blindly. All babies are born Muslim but their parents convert them Christian and Jews.

    Islam will grow despite of strong opposition to Muslims in the west. Islam is not any new religion, Islam means to submit your will to one and true Lord, who is the Lord of the Thrones. Who sent Adam,Abraham,Ishmael,Isaac,Joanna,Lot,Joseph,Moses,Jesus and Muhammad( Peace and blessings of God be on them all),The Quran Honours Mary as the women chosen above women of all the nations and their is a chapter dedicated to her in Quran called chapter 19, Mary and Jesus(Peace be on him) was the mightiest messengers of God, he was born miraculously without any male intervention, he healed all the blind and sick by God’s Permission. And no Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus Christ as the messenger of God, and Jesus is coming back to this world, and this is our emaan our faith.Jesus says in the Bible that” on that day many will come to me and say, “Lord have we not done mighty works in thy name, in thy name cast out devils. Jesus says” You evil people depart from me, I never knew you”.

    Islam is a religion of peace love and JUSTICE. Muslims don’t and should not prove their innocence who believe that Islam is a violent religion. ISLAM today and after 9/11 has been the fastest growing religion in the WORLD. To be honest, nobody like unpeaceful religion… it seems that its impossible to gain billions of followers if a prophet was evil.. and it has decline the number of Christianity in the world.. Judaism as well.. the only war today was due to people that are greedy for power.. but in majority of Muslims view, politics is only for man who wants to challenge his life. Most of us don’t like politics because later you would be put in trial in front of God. Ordinary Muslims prefer to be away from it..

    Allah our God said in Quran: “When You Are Greeted, Answer With A More Courteous Greeting, Or At Least Of Equal Degree.” (Surah 4: Ayah 86) Islam teach us ”to treat people the way we love to be treated” That what Mohammed peace be upon him said. and He also said ”Shall I tell you something which, if you did, you would love each other? Spread the greeting of peace between yourselves” all I am kindly saying that Islam is really a peaceful religion, please do not judge it before you understand it. If you want to learn about Islam, just read the Quran for yourself and look at Muhammad’s life and what he’s done. Islam is peace it never encourages violent in any way. Islam encourages self defence.

    The Crusades were started by Christians in their desire to have sole control over the Holy Land and by the desire of the Pope, Urban II, to unite the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Church after the schism of 1054, against a common enemy, which was Islam, the Christian Crusaders had no desire to share the Holy land with anyone, in contrast under Muslim rule Jerusalem was a multicultural city with Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities, Jewish communities who had been invited back to Jerusalem by Muslims after the eviction of the Byzantine Empire and its anti-Semitic ban on Jews entering the city which had been imposed by the Romans after the Collapse of the Temple. Jews helped to defend the city alongside Muslims against the crusader army before they were massacred alongside the Muslims by the Crusaders. The Crusades aim was to capture the Holy land from the Muslim Arabs solely for Christianity, it was an act of imperialism, racism and Barbarism that the modern Western world is rightly ashamed of and now rejects, for you to seek to justify it is beyond belief, oh and btw the Mosque you are referring to in Jerusalem is the Al-Aqsa Mosque which was built on the temple mount, a site sacred to Jews that was destroyed by the Romans which has nothing to do with Christianity, and yes Christians subjected Jews to centuries of violent anti-Semitism, particularly during the inquisition when Jews and Muslims had to convert or otherwise leave, or stay and be burned at the stake as heretics.

      What you are trying to do is justify the evil deeds of mohammed and his deceived followers by refering to some non-muslims who may or may not have been equally deceived. BUT–your comment that “The Crusades were started by Christians” is by no means a true reflexion of what REALLY happened! Muslim hoards of bandits and murderers, who professed faith in allah, were the CAUSE of the Crusaders having to DEFEND themselves and their wives and children!

      You are so typically muslim! When you are confronted with the UNCOMFORTABLE FACTS of your islamic history you attack the TRUTH! Even your leader himself confessed to his mother at one point in his life, that he feared he might be influenced by demons! HOW, IN GOD’S HOLY NAME CAN YOU HAVE ANY CONFIDENCE IN SOMEONE LIKE THAT?????

      As for your comment that “no Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus Christ” you are living in ‘la-la’ land! Either you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible who said, “I and my Father are One” and “Before Abraham was I AM” or you make him a liar!

      Jesus Christ is not just one of many prophets–HE IS THE LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS, to Whom you will one day give an account for the deeds you have done in this life!

      You can believe whatever you will, but it won’t change the TRUTH!

      THE TRUTH IS THIS–JESUS CHRIST IS LORD and allah is a god of deception–and mohammed is his FALSE prophet!

      To ‘Iftikhar Ahmad’ – When I read your blithering diatribe of lies I come up with two conclusions–(1) you are clearly ‘Western’ educated, and (2) your insane ‘logic’ does not match the degree of intellect with which you present your arguments.

      (1) You seem to know all about Christianity and Western culture. That takes years of arduous study–even for the best of us. In other words, you are a teacher of sorts, or an imam. Probably an imam! That makes you extremely DANGEROUS TO MY BELOVED AMERICAN PEOPLE! You are preaching LIES AND YOU KNOW IT!

      Your whole ‘claim to fame’ is about SUBJUGATION of innocent people! THERE ARE NO RULES IN ISLAM only the one about KILL THE INFIDEL!

      DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT A ‘GOD OF MERCY AND TRUTH’ DOES NOT JUDGE LIARS AND MURDERERS AND RAPISTS AND DECEIVERS SUCH AS YOU AND YOUR COMPATRIOTS???? LET ME INFORM YOU, OH INFORMED ONE, YOUR DAMNATION WILL BE SEVERE AND MORE INTENSE THAN THE IGNORANT ONES THAT YOU HAVE MANAGED TO DECEIVE. YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK!!!!!

      (2) Your English is impeccable and that’s why I don’t really believe that you are Middle Eastern by birth, such as your name suggests. If, in fact, you are a Middle Easterner who has taken advantage of our Western educational system, then WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!

      PRAY TELL, how does one so meticulously educated as yourself still manage to hang on to 7th century ignorance??? Your koran is filled with NOTHING BUT inconsistencies and contradictions, not to mention, out and out LIES!!

        I was born in India and at the time of partition of India, my parents migrated to Pakistan. I was educated in Pakistan and after graduation from Punjab University as a teacher. Some of my teachers were from Indiana University. I migrated to UK in 1967. I have never been in a Madrassa in Pakistan and I am a western educated Muslim. The Tsunami of the west made me practising Muslim.

        After two years in state schools in London, I became a rebel. I took the British Government to the European Commission of Human Rights because I was not given time off to attend my obligatory Friday prayers in the Mosque. Since early 70s, I started a campaign that state schools are not suitable for Muslim children. They need state funded Muslim schools with Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental period. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.

        The Muslim community has been passing through a phase of fourth Crusades. The battleground is the field of education, where the young generation will be educated properly with the Holly Quran in one hand and Sciences in other hand to serve the British society and the world at large. A true Muslim is a citizen of the world, which has become a small global village. We are going to prepare our youth to achieve that objective in the long run. A true Muslim believes in Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jesus and without them one cannot be a Muslim. My suggestion is that in all state, independent and Christian based school special attention should be given to the teaching of Comparative Religion and Islam should be taught by qualified Muslim Teachers to make the children aware the closeness of Islam to Christianity and Judaism which will help them to think about Islam, as “A Pragmatic and Modern Way of Life,” during their life time.

        British schooling and the British society is the home of institutional racism. The result is that Muslim children are unable to develop self-confidence and self-esteem, therefore, majority of them leave schools with low grades. Racism is deeply rooted in British society. Every native child is born with a gene or virus of racism, therefore, no law could change the attitudes of racism towards those who are different. It is not only the common man, even member of the royal family is involved in racism. The father of a Pakistani office cadet who was called a “***” by Prince Harry has profoundly condemned his actions. He had felt proud when he met the Queen and the Prince of Wales at his son’s passing out parade at Sandhurst in 2006 but now felt upset after learning about the Prince’s comments. Queen Victoria invited an Imam from India to teach her Urdu language. He was highly respected by the Queen but other members of the royal family had no respect for him. He was forced to go back to India. His portrait is still in one of the royal places.

        According to a recent report, Muslim schools performed best overall, although they constitute only a fraction of the country’s 7000 schools. Muslim schools do well because of their Islamic ethos and a focus on traditional discipline and teaching methods. They teach children what is right and what is wrong, because young children need structured guidance.

        Bilingual Muslims children have a right, as much as any other faith group, to be taught their culture, languages and faith alongside a mainstream curriculum. More faith schools will be opened under sweeping reforms of the education system in England. There is a dire need for the growth of state funded Muslim schools to meet the growing needs and demands of the Muslim parents and children. Now the time has come that parents and community should take over the running of their local schools. Parent-run schools will give the diversity, the choice and the competition that the wealthy have in the private sector. Parents can perform a better job than the Local Authority because parents have a genuine vested interest. The Local Authority simply cannot be trusted.

        You better teach your children in your own schools and let migrant communities teach their children according to their needs and demands. British Establishment and society should concentrate on the evils of their own society and stop trying to change the way of life of Muslims. Muslim community does not want to integrate with the British society, indulging in incivility, anti-social behaviour, drug and knife culture, binge drinking, teenage pregnancies and abortion. Prince Charles, while visiting the first grant maintained Muslim school in north London, said that the pupils would be the future ambassadors of Islam. But what about thousands of others, who attend state schools deemed to be “sink schools”? In education, there should be a choice and at present it is denied to the Muslim community. In the late 80s and early 90s, when I floated the idea of Muslim community schools, I was declared a “school hijacker” by an editorial in the Newham Recorder newspaper in east London. This clearly shows that the British media does not believe in choice and diversity in the field of education and has no respect for those who are different. Muslim schools, in spite of meager resources, have excelled to a further extent this year, with couple of schools achieving 100% A-C grades for five or more GCSEs. They beat well resourced state and independent schools in Birmingham and Hackney. Muslim schools are doing better because a majority of the teachers are Muslim. The pupils are not exposed to the pressures of racism, multiculturalism and bullying.

        There are hundreds of state primary and secondary schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out to become Muslim Academies. This mean the Muslim children will get a decent education. Muslim schools turned out balanced citizens, more tolerant of others and less likely to succumb to criminality or extremism. Muslim schools give young people confidence in who they are and an understanding of Islam’s teaching of tolerance and respect which prepares them for a positive and fulfilling role in society. Muslim schools are attractive to Muslim parents because they have better discipline and teaching Islamic values. Children like discipline, structure and boundaries. Bilingual Muslim children need Bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods, who understand their needs and demands.

    Hi Iftikhar, thank you for your comments. I’ll try to make mine as brief as possible.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Christian world needs to stop pointing venomous fingers at the Muslim world.”

    Then this needs to stop:

    Islam and Reality

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Starting with the Crusades, the Inquisition, the wholesale slaughter of native Americans, the religious wars in Europe…Christianity hasn’t exactly been a shiny example.”

    “The popular misconceptions about the crusades are that these were aggressive wars of expansion fought by religious fanatics in order to evict Muslims from their homeland, and force conversions to Christianity. Those who really believe any of that betray their ignorance of history.

    The crusaders were reacting to over four centuries of relentless Islamic Jihad, which had wiped out over 50% of all the Christians in the world and conquered over 60% of all the Christian lands on earth – before the crusades even began. Many of the towns liberated by the crusaders were still over 90% Christian when the crusaders arrived. The Middle East was the birthplace of the Christian Church. It was the Christians who had been conquered and oppressed by the Seljuk Turks. Many of the towns in the Middle East welcomed the crusaders as liberators.

    Far from the crusaders being the aggressors, it was the Muslim armies which had spread Islam from Saudi Arabia across the whole of Christian North Africa into Spain and even France within the first century after the death of Muhammad. Muslim armies sacked and slaughtered their way across some of the greatest Christian cities in the world, including Alexandria, Carthage, Antioch and Constantinople. These Muslim invaders destroyed over 3,200 Christian churches just in the first 100 years of Islam.

    As Professor Thomas Madden in The Real History of the Crusades points out: ‘The crusades to the East were in every way defensive wars. They were a direct response to Muslim aggression – an attempt to turn back or defend against Muslim conquests of Christian lands. Christians in the 11th Century were not paranoid fanatics. Muslims really were gunning for them. Islam was born in war and grew the same way. From the time of Muhammad, the means of Muslim expansion was always by the sword. Christianity was the dominant religion of power and wealth. The Christian world therefore was a prime target for the earliest Caliphs and it would remain so for Muslim leaders for the next thousand years. The crusades were but a response to more than four centuries of conquests in which Muslim had already captured over two-thirds of the Christian world.’

    As the London Telegraph points out: ‘A more realistic view of history requires less retrospective fantasy and more brain work. It means forcing your heads around to see what motivated men and women centuries ago. Try to think the unthinkable – that the Crusaders were right, and that we should be grateful to them.'” Read more here.

    As for the other less-than-shiny examples of “Christianity” you gave, the contention that the inquisition was an actual reflection of Christianity or that Christians committed “wholesale slaughter” of natives is a gross misrepresentation and exaggeration. In many areas, the majority of the native populations that died were killed by “Old World” diseases that Europeans inadvertently carried with them that the natives had no immunity for. If there were conflicts with natives, they often sought peace treaties that benefited both parties. Yes, there have been dark times when so-called “Christians” in the past warred against and mistreated others, but they did not do so because they were obeying Christ’s commands. To the contrary, they were ignoring them. Such behavior was a terrible departure from the faith of Christ, not a genuine reflection of it. In the Qur’an and Hadith, however, Mohammed explicitly calls upon his followers to wage war against non-Muslims and to kill them. But in the Bible, Jesus did not call upon His followers to fight against non-Christians. Not one single time did Jesus ever command His followers to kill their enemies. Instead, He taught us the following:

    Matthew 5:43-46a, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?”

    Where in the Qur’an or Hadith does it command Muslims to love their enemies, to bless them and do good to them?

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Islam teaches women are free and empowered individuals that are equal before God”

    Not according to the Qur’an and Hadith. The inconvenient truth is the fact that under Islam women are considered intellectually deficient, inferior, make up the vast majority of hell’s unfortunate inhabitants, worthy of a “good” beat-down without question when they get out of line and are possessions that can be taken as sex slaves and endlessly raped as the spoils of war. This is the true treatment of Islam’s “free and empowered” women. Here is but a few examples from the Qur’an and Hadith:

    Hadith, Bukhari 6:301, “[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man? … This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’”

    Hadith, Bukhari 5096, “[Muhammad said] The worst sin and distraction from virtue that I have left for man is woman”

    Qur’an Sura 4:34a, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other …”

    Hadith, Bukhari 5196, “[Muhammad said] When I stood on the door of hell, I saw most of its inhabitants were women”

    Qur’an Sura 38:44, “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath …”

    Hadith, Abu Dawud 2142, “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

    Qur’an Sura 33:50a, “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee … those [women] whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war…”

    Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, Page 182: “You see [Allah] will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with their women.”

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Quran states ‘there is no compulsion in religion’ i.e. you can’t force people in to belief.”

    A verse that has been abrogated by later “revelations” according to Islamic teaching. Dr. Muhammad al-Amin in “The Method of Islamic Law” explains that “No infidel [unbeliever] should be left on his land as it is denoted from Muhammad’s statement: ‘I was commanded to fight the people’”.

    Articulated clearly by TROP is the fact that “The Muslim who offers this verse may or may not understand that it is from one of the earliest Suras (or chapters) from the Medinan period. It was ‘revealed’ at a time when the Muslims had just arrived in Medina after being chased out of Mecca. They needed to stay in the good graces of the stronger tribes around them, many of which were Jewish. It was around this time, for example, that Muhammad decided to have his followers change the direction of their prayer from Mecca to Jerusalem.

    But Muslims today pray toward Mecca. The reason for this is that Muhammad issued a later command that abrogated (or nullified) the first. In fact, abrogation is a very important principle to keep in mind when interpreting the Qur’an – and verse 2:256 in particular – because later verses (in chronological terms) are said to abrogate any earlier ones that may be in contradiction (Qur’an 2:106, 16:101).

    Muhammad’s message was far closer to peace and tolerance during his early years at Mecca, when he didn’t have an army and was trying to pattern his new religion after Christianity. This changed dramatically after he attained the power to conquer, which he eventually used with impunity to bring other tribes into the Muslim fold. Contrast verse 2:256 with Suras 9 and 5, which were the last ‘revealed,’ and it is easy to see why Islam has been anything but a religion of peace from the time of Muhammad to the present day.

    There is some evidence that verse 2:256 may not have been intended for Muslims at all, but is instead meant to be a warning to other religions concerning their treatment of Muslims. Verse 193 of the same Sura instructs Muslims to ‘fight with them (non-Muslims) until there is no more persecution and religion is only for Allah.’ This reinforces the narcissistic nature of Islam, which places Muslims above non-Muslims, and applies a very different value and standard of treatment to both groups.” Read more here.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “According to Islam [converts to Islam are actually] reverts. Nothing much to do with Christianity or Judaism; but the belief that all children are born in to Islam, but raised differently by their parents; hence those who accept Islam are merely reverting back to their original faith.”

    Think about what you just said logically. If what you say were true, then according to Islam itself all “non-Muslims” — since they were originally born a Muslim — should therefore be killed if they refuse to “revert” back to Islam:

    Hadith, Bukhari 9.84.57, “Muhammad said, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’”

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Secondly; unlike other religions; Islam has no problem accepting other beliefs and religions as a different path to the same one God.”

    You disagree with the Qur’an and the explicit teachings of Mohammed?

    Qur’an Sura 3:85, “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers [in hell].”

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “God sent 124000 prophets since Adam; and they were all before Islam; Muhammad(PBUH) was the last amongst them. Islam is a continuation of the original beliefs”

    Here are a few facts for your consideration that are historically/archaeologically verifiable. The Qur’an is just 1 book that was written (recited) over a period of 23 years by 1 man. The Bible is a collection of 66 different books that were written over a period of 1,500 years by 40 different authors (the oldest books may be nearly 4000 years old). According to Biblical Scripture, the Law and the Prophets ended with John (Luke 16:16), and was fulfilled with the true Jesus of Biblical Scripture (Matthew 5:17). We believe that all additional “law” from any self-professed “prophet” afterward is man-made and false.

    As I note in my “Questions for Muslim Visitors” page, archaeological discoveries have repeatedly confirmed what Christians have already believed, that Biblical manuscripts and fragments dated even hundreds of years before Mohammed are virtually identical to the canonized Biblical texts we have today. The same cannot be said for the Qur’an, however, despite the claim by Muslims that the Qur’an has never been altered. Even honest Muslim archaeologists acknowledge that many aberrations exist in old Qur’anic texts, a forthright admission that runs counter to the Islamic claim that the Qur’an is unchanged and eternal. Contrary to the claims of Muslim apologists, not only does the Qur’an distort and incorrectly define some very basic Christian doctrines, it is also at odds with factual and observable science by presenting a flat earth model for the earth and universe, for instance (and Muslim apologists scrambled to re-interpret their book when science proved it wrong). Moreover, when Muhammad recited the Qur’an, he clearly stated that he did not believe that the Bible was “corrupt” at that time and called upon Christians to adhere to the Scriptures that they already possessed. But this begs the question: Since the Scriptures we have today are the same Scriptures that Christians had even well before the time of Mohammed, when do you believe the Bible could have possibly been corrupted, who corrupted it, and how was it corrupted? Not only that, please feel free to explain how and why anyone should seriously take a book like the Qur’an that isn’t even arranged chronologically, yet says to ignore earlier verses? What is your definition of “timeless” and “unchanged” and “unaltered”?

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Islam offers inner quietness and solace to over a billion people, influencing countless households to try to live decent lives.”

    Then why is there so much death and misery in the Islamic world and Muslims killing other Muslims? Although not all Muslims are terrorists, why are virtually all terrorists Muslim? How can Islam offer “inner quietness and solace” when it promotes things like terrorism, war, the love of death and martyrdom, hatred, misogyny, racism? It even instructs Muslims to lie in the defense and promotion of Islam. How does any of this influence Muslims to “live decent lives”?

    Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The ‘Prophet’ Of Islam, Mohammed

    Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day …”

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “In Islam, I would like to tell that we don’t have any conflicts between science and our religion. On the contrary, many of new science theories proves that our holy book ‘Quran’ must be from Allah, this is because it tells us with science facts that has been discovered only recently. Although Quran is from 14 centuries, it has many signs that earth is spherical, in addition is has signs about the Big Bang theory of the universe creation, in addition it has many science facts about the stages of women pregnancy and how the child is created …”

    Science discovered that the sun does not set in a spring of murky water (Sura 18:86 says otherwise). Science discovered that the earth revolves around the sun, not the other way around (Sura 21:33; 36:38, 40; 91:1-2 all say otherwise). Science discovered that the stars are not close to us (Sura 37:6 says otherwise). Science discovered that the moon does not emit light, but reflects it (Sura 71:16 says otherwise). Science discovered that the earth did not exist before the creation of the universe (Sura 2:29 says otherwise). Science discovered that male sperm comes from the testicles, not from between the backbone and the ribs (Sura 86:6-7 says otherwise). Science discovered that flesh is formed before bones (Sura 23:14 says otherwise). I can go on and on, but here are two videos you may find interesting:

    Iftikhar, what I say to all Muslim visitors, I say with all sincerity to you as well. Please think about this very carefully, because in light of the fact that even Mohammed himself did not know for certain what would happen to him in the afterlife, why should any Christian who knows beyond a doubt that they are guaranteed eternal life through faith in the Jesus of the Bible, give up the Christian faith of Jesus for the Islamic faith of Mohammed which we know will guarantee us nothing? You, too, can have the same guarantee that we as Christians share. All you have to do is believe in and put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. Since you sound sincere, would you sincerely be willing to pray with an open heart and ask God to guide you to His truth, even if that truth is found in the Jesus of the Bible, and not in Islam?

    Matthew 1:21, “She shall bring forth a son. You shall call his name YESHUA, for it is he who shall save his people from their sins.”

    John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten [monogenēs – “unique”] Son [YESHUA], that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

    Isaiah 62:11, “Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy YESHU’AH cometh; behold, HIS reward [is] with HIM, and HIS work before HIM.”

    Revelation 22:12, “And behold, I [YESHUA] am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”

    John 14:6, “YESHUA said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through Me.'”

    Romans 10:13,For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

    Islam is a religion of peace, accepted and practiced by more than 1.25 billion people worldwide. It is the fastest-growing religion in the world, and if it was what some critics claim, why should the people from all walks of life from around the world keep embracing Islam?

    Where is the sword now?

    In Islam, a person has the right to defend himself, his family, his country or his neighbour(s), which justifies the resistance being offered by the people of Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Iraq, Kashmir and Palestine, to attacks on their soils by the so-called liberators, who are actually the occupiers.

    The Holy Qur’an clearly states that if a person saves one life, it’s as if he saved humanity, and if a person kills one human being, it’s as if he killed humanity.

    What is happening in the enslaved Muslim countries is a natural reaction to occupation, bombings, killing and terrorizing of innocent civilians (children, old men and women), rapes, in addition to looting of resources, national antiques and artifacts, above all destruction of property by the occupiers.

    Terror breeds terror.

    We assure those who bash Islam that if there was no occupation in this world by foreign invaders, there would be no resistance – the so-called terror.

    We would like those who criticize Islam to explain the following acts committed by the Christians on Jews, other Christians and Muslims alike, throughout history:

    – Hundreds of thousands of Muslim men, women and children killed by the crusaders, who were Christians.

    – Inquisition of Jews and Muslims from Spain by Queen Isabella, a Christian.

    – Millions of people killed by the European and American Christians during the two world wars.

    – Hundreds of thousands of Christians killed every year by the Irish Christians, including the British and the IRA, both Catholics and Protestants, during the past few centuries. Why are they not blamed to be “Christian Terrorists?”

    Both of them believe in Jesus Christ, who told them to turn the other cheek, and both of them believe in the same Lord, Who commanded that “Thou shall not kill.” Period.

    – Timothy McVeigh, who bombed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, was a Catholic. Are all Catholics terrorists?

    Last but not least, the bombings, killings, raping and lynching of both American Indians and black slaves (Afro-Americans) during the past 200 years in the United States.

    What about them?

    Will those filled with hate for Islam blame Christianity for the above inhuman acts by Christians in various parts of the world since its inception?

    If not, then why are they blaming the religion of Islam for what is a natural reaction to occupation of Muslim countries by foreign invaders?

    Most importantly, these folks should know that the three (3) great Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – have one common basis, and that is one (1) God Almighty, according to the first Commandment, “Thou shall not worship anyone besides Me.”

    “All men (and women) are created equal, and we all are one nation under Almighty God,” is a statement according to the Holy Qur’an and is very well elucidated in the U.S. Constitution.

    Lastly, yet importantly, as brothers in humanity, we recommend those filled with hate get an education in the history of Islam and Muslims, before they dare to write nasty letters full of personal, ingrain hate and vendetta.

    We would be pleased to provide anyone with free copies of the Holy Qur’an and Islamic literature in English, which would help them to understand the truth about Islam and Muslims and get rid of hate from their systems, God willing.

    May God Almighty show you the light, Amen.

      To ‘Iftikhar Ahmad’ – How deluded can you get? You know absolutely nothing of your false “religion”. It’s one thing to be personally deceived about these things, but it’s quite another to blatantly tell lies to promote that deception. My guess: you’re a know-it-all imam!

      Well rest assured, your damnation will be far greater than the innocent men, women and children whom you have personally dragged along with you, on your way to HELL!!!!!

      Remember, Jesus Christ is watching everything that you say and do and you will surely answer to Him on that Day. You’ve chosen to blaspheme His Glorious Name and that of His innocent people. How will you answer Him when He says, Why did you persecute my Church??

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “[Islam] is the fastest-growing religion in the world, and if it was what some critics claim, why should the people from all walks of life from around the world keep embracing Islam? Where is the sword now?”

    If, for the sake of argument, Islam were the “fastest-growing religion in the world”, then it’s not because people are drawn to it because of its appeal. It is because people are forced into submission through threat of death, and remain Muslim under threat of death as well. Even one of the most influential spiritual leaders in the Muslim world himself admitted on Arab television that if it were not for the threat of death, Islam would not exist today:

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “The Holy Qur’an clearly states that if a person saves one life, it’s as if he saved humanity, and if a person kills one human being, it’s as if he killed humanity.”

    Qur’an Sura 5:32 is often called the most “peaceful” verse in the Qur’an, but let’s look at what it’s really saying. Many people who call Islam a “Religion of Peace” quote that portion of Sura 5:32, but then leave out the rest. Here it is in full, with the most important part of the verse emphasized:

    Qur’an Sura 5:32, “Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors”.

    The portion that you quoted seems to imply that it is wrong to ever kill someone, but when read in full it makes two vital exceptions: unless someone is killed for revenge, or unless they are killed for spreading “corruption” in the land. Since the teachings and beliefs of Jews and Christians and all non-Muslims in general are considered “corrupt” in Islam, the fact of the matter is that even the most “peaceful” Qur’anic verse is itself yet another one among many that devout Muslims use to justify the slaughter of non-Muslims (!).

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “What is happening in the enslaved Muslim countries is a natural reaction to occupation, bombings, killing and terrorizing of innocent civilians …”

    Let’s look at all the death that is happening in the Islamic world a little more closely. In an ideal world there would be no killing at all. Truth be told, if Islam never existed then most, if not all, of the people you’re referring to would not be experiencing “occupation, bombings, killing and terrorizing.” Here is what one Muslim paper in Lebanon honest enough to point out something that should otherwise be obvious to anyone:

    Hurriyet Daily News: With 10 Million Muslims Killed Since 1948 at the Hands of Fellow Muslims, Golda Meir Was Right

    “It has been more than two and a half years since Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told to Israeli President Shimon Peres’s face, ‘You (Jews) know well how to kill.’

    It has been more than two and a half years since Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told to Israeli President Shimon Peres’s face, ‘You (Jews) know well how to kill.’ Prime Minister Erdoğan has also declared more than a few times that the main obstacle to peace in this part of the world is Israel, once calling the Jewish state ‘a festering boil in the Middle East that spreads hate and enmity.’ In this holy month of Ramadan full of blood on Muslim territories, let’s try to identify who are the ones who know well how to kill.

    As the Syrian death count clicks every day to come close to 2,000, the Turkish-Kurdish death count does not stop, already over 40,000 since 1984, both adding to the big pool of blood called the Middle East. Only during this Ramadan, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK’s, death toll has reached 50 in this Muslim Kurds vs. Muslim Turks war. This excludes the PKK casualties in Turkey and in northern Iraq due to Turkish military retaliation since they are seldom accurately reported.

    Let’s speak of facts.

    Sudan is not in the conventional Middle East, so let’s ignore the genocide there. Let’s ignore, also, the West Pakistani massacres in East Pakistan (Bangladesh) totaling 1.25 million in 1971. Or 200,000 deaths in Algeria in war between Islamists and the government in 1991-2006.

    But a simple, strictly Middle East research will give you one million deaths in the all-Muslim Iran-Iraq war; 300,000 Muslim minorities killed by Saddam Hussein; 80,000 Iranians killed during the Islamic revolution; 25,000 deaths in 1970-71, the days of Black September, by the Jordanian government in its fight against the Palestinians; and 20,000 Islamists killed in 1982 by the elder al-Assad in Hama. The World Health Organization’s estimate of Osama bin Laden’s carnage in Iraq was already 150,000 a few years earlier.

    In a 2007 research, Gunnar Heinsohn from the University of Bremen and Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, found out that some 11 million Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, (0.3 percent) died during the six years of Arab war against Israel, or one out of every 315 fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.

    According to Mssrs. Heinsohn and Pipes, the grisly inventory finds the total number of deaths in conflicts all over the world since 1950 numbering around 85 million. Of that, the Muslim Arab deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict were at 46,000 including 11,000 during Israel’s war of independence. That makes 0.05 percent of all deaths in all conflicts, or 0.4 percent of all Arab deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

    In another calculation ignoring ‘small’ massacres like the one that goes on in Syria and other deaths during the Arab Spring, only Saddam’s Iraq, Jordan, the elder al-Assad’s Syria, Iran-Iraq war, the bin Laden campaign in Iraq, the Iranian Islamic revolution and the Turkish-Kurdish conflict caused 1.65 million Muslim deaths by Muslims compared to less than 50,000 deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict since 1950, including fatalities during and after Operation Cast Lead which came after the Heinsohn-Pipes study. For those who don’t have a calculator ready at their desks, allow me to tell: 50,000 is three percent of 1.65 million.

    Golda Meir, the fourth prime minister of Israel, or rather the ‘Mother of Israel,’ had a perfectly realistic point when she said that peace in the Middle East would only be possible ‘when Arabs love their children more than they hate us.’”

    Source.

    The number of dead Muslims at the hands of other Muslims continues to climb higher and higher. In Syria, for instance, the number of dead is now closer to 120,000. All across the Islamic world, Muslims are dying at the hands of other Muslims, every year, every month, every week, every day, every hour, every minute. Death follows Islam like a wolf stalks its prey. And it devours. When the world is truly rid of the “Religion of Peace” then there will be, finally, Peace. And that day will come. Read here to find out how. The choice that you need to make is with whom will you stand?

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “We assure those who bash Islam that if there was no occupation in this world by foreign invaders, there would be no resistance – the so-called terror.”

    Reality says otherwise. When there is no “foreign invader” to kill, Muslims are busy killing other Muslims.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Hundreds of thousands of Muslim men, women and children killed by the crusaders, who were Christians… Inquisition… two world wars… the IRA”

    Again, “The popular misconceptions about the crusades are that these were aggressive wars of expansion fought by religious fanatics in order to evict Muslims from their homeland, and force conversions to Christianity. Those who really believe any of that betray their ignorance of history.

    The crusaders were reacting to over four centuries of relentless Islamic Jihad, which had wiped out over 50% of all the Christians in the world and conquered over 60% of all the Christian lands on earth – before the crusades even began. Many of the towns liberated by the crusaders were still over 90% Christian when the crusaders arrived. The Middle East was the birthplace of the Christian Church. It was the Christians who had been conquered and oppressed by the Seljuk Turks. Many of the towns in the Middle East welcomed the crusaders as liberators.

    Far from the crusaders being the aggressors, it was the Muslim armies which had spread Islam from Saudi Arabia across the whole of Christian North Africa into Spain and even France within the first century after the death of Muhammad. Muslim armies sacked and slaughtered their way across some of the greatest Christian cities in the world, including Alexandria, Carthage, Antioch and Constantinople. These Muslim invaders destroyed over 3,200 Christian churches just in the first 100 years of Islam.

    As Professor Thomas Madden in The Real History of the Crusades points out: ‘The crusades to the East were in every way defensive wars. They were a direct response to Muslim aggression – an attempt to turn back or defend against Muslim conquests of Christian lands. Christians in the 11th Century were not paranoid fanatics. Muslims really were gunning for them. Islam was born in war and grew the same way. From the time of Muhammad, the means of Muslim expansion was always by the sword. Christianity was the dominant religion of power and wealth. The Christian world therefore was a prime target for the earliest Caliphs and it would remain so for Muslim leaders for the next thousand years. The crusades were but a response to more than four centuries of conquests in which Muslim had already captured over two-thirds of the Christian world.’

    As the London Telegraph points out: ‘A more realistic view of history requires less retrospective fantasy and more brain work. It means forcing your heads around to see what motivated men and women centuries ago. Try to think the unthinkable – that the Crusaders were right, and that we should be grateful to them.'” Read more here.

    As for the other examples of “Christianity” you gave, the contention that the inquisition or two world wars or the IRA was an actual reflection of Christianity is a gross misrepresentation and exaggeration. Yes, there have been dark times when so-called “Christians” in the past warred against and mistreated others, but they did not do so because they were obeying Christ’s commands. To the contrary, they were ignoring them. Such behavior was a terrible departure from the faith of Christ, not a genuine reflection of it. In the Qur’an and Hadith, however, Mohammed explicitly calls upon his followers to wage war against non-Muslims and to kill them. But in the Bible, Jesus did not call upon His followers to fight against non-Christians. Not one single time did Jesus ever command His followers to kill their enemies. Instead, He taught us the following:

    Matthew 5:43-46a, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?”

    Where in the Qur’an or Hadith does it command Muslims to love their enemies, to bless them and do good to them?

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Timothy McVeigh, who bombed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, was a Catholic. Are all Catholics terrorists?”

    I would encourage you to do a little more research. “McVeigh was born Catholic but drifted away from the faith. He told Time magazine in 1996 that he believed in a deity but had ‘lost touch with the religion’ of his birth. He did ‘maintain core beliefs,’ but declined in the interview to spell those beliefs out.

    He became a little bit more specific before his execution in 2001. We might call him spiritual but not religious. He claimed to be agnostic but not an atheist. McVeigh believed in ‘science’ and not ‘religion,’ he said. (In fact, he said his religion was science.) His murky metaphysical notions included some sort of Deistic creator who set things in motion, not the personal God of Christianity.

    The Oklahoma City Bomber didn’t believe in an afterlife and he certainly didn’t believe in hell.” (Source).

    Unlike the “Catholic” Timothy McVeigh, Muslims who engage in acts of terror have not “lost touch” with their religion. They’ve embraced it. They don’t decline to spell out what their beliefs are. They want everybody to bloody well know it, literally. They don’t claim to be “agnostic”, but rather a firm believer in the “Religion of [Anything But] Peace” and it’s religiously-sanctioned mayhem and murder. And unlike McVeigh, Muslim terrorists definitely believe in an afterlife and, in fact, believe that the only guarantee entry into “paradise” is to die for the cause of “Allah” and his “prophet.” That is nothing but a Satanic deception.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Last but not least, the bombings, killings, raping and lynching of both American Indians and black slaves (Afro-Americans) during the past 200 years in the United States. What about them?”

    The suggestion that Christians committed “bombings, killings, raping and lynching” of natives and blacks is, again, a gross misrepresentation and exaggeration. In many areas, the majority of the native populations of the Americas that died were killed by “Old World” diseases that Europeans inadvertently carried with them that the natives had no immunity for. If there were conflicts with natives, they often sought peace treaties that benefited both parties. As for the mistreatment of blacks, this was yet again a serious departure from Christianity, not a reflection of it. Christianity teaches love, compassion, kindless, equality of all races and genders. The same cannot be said for Islam.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Will those filled with hate for Islam blame Christianity for the above inhuman acts by Christians in various parts of the world since its inception? If not, then why are they blaming the religion of Islam for what is a natural reaction to occupation of Muslim countries by foreign invaders?”

    Look at the teachings of Islam. Are there any verses in the New Testament that command Christians to do anything remotely similar as this? (I didn’t think so):

    Qur’an Sura (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]…and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.” There is a good case to be made that the overall context of these verses is defensive war, however, there are two worrisome pieces to this passage. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of “persecution.” The second is that fighting may persist until “religion is for Allah.”

    Qur’an Sura (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

    Qur’an Sura (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

    Qur’an Sura (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

    Qur’an Sura (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of killing Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

    Qur’an Sura (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”

    Qur’an Sura (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

    Qur’an Sura (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    Qur’an Sura (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage not only criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, but also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Qur’an, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad).

    Qur’an Sura (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Pursuing an injured enemy is not an act of self-defense.

    Qur’an Sura (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    Qur’an Sura (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Qur’an Sura (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

    Qur’an Sura (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah”

    Qur’an Sura (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

    Qur’an Sura (8:59-60) – “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:14) – “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

    Qur’an Sura (9:20) – “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.

    Qur’an Sura (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

    Qur’an Sura (9:38-39) – “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

    Qur’an Sura (9:41) – “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:88) – “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

    Qur’an Sura (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

    Qur’an Sura (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

    Qur’an Sura (25:52) – “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur’an).” “Strive against” is Jihad, obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

    Qur’an Sura (47:4) – “So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,”

    Qur’an Sura (47:35) – “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost: for Allah is with you,”

    Qur’an Sura (48:17) – “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.”

    Qur’an Sura (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves”

    Qur’an Sura (61:4) – “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way”

    Qur’an Sura (61:10-12) – “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.” This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

    Qur’an Sura (66:9) – “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites,” those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Most importantly, these folks should know that the three (3) great Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – have one common basis, and that is one (1) God Almighty, according to the first Commandment, ‘Thou shall not worship anyone besides Me.'”

    It was Yahweh who said that “Thou shall not have any other gods before Me.” Not “Allah.” Not once in the entire Qur’an does the name of Yahweh ever appear. Contrary to the claim of Muslim apologists, Islam has never been and will never be an “Abrahamic faith.” There is only one faith of Abraham, and it is belief in Yahweh and His Promise — Jesus Christ who was crucified — the very thing that Islam completely denies as ever happening.

    Galatians 1b-8a, 14, 16, “Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified… Abraham ‘believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.’ Understand, then, that those who have faith [in Jesus Christ and Him crucified] are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham … He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit… The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say ‘and to seeds,’ meaning many people, but ‘and to your seed,’ meaning one person, who is Christ.

    Iftikhar Ahmad, “Lastly, yet importantly, as brothers in humanity, we recommend those filled with hate get an education in the history of Islam and Muslims…”

    We have. The question now is, have you? Please read this article to truly understand Islam’s history. And please, for the sake of your soul, examine today why you believe what you believe. One day it will be too late.

    The Bible, and any person of wisdom, will say, “you will know them by their acts.” What are the acts of Islam? I’m not talking about 500+ years ago. What are their acts in this century? Not just in the West, but in Indonesia, ( Be-headings, bombings, and slaughter ), and China, Russia, ( The Beslan School, Bombings, Be-headings )? What are their acts is Africa?
    ( Kidnapping and raping school girls, mmore be-headings, taking children into slavery ).

    In these same countries, what do Christians do? Christians feed the poor, heel the sick, and rebuild their homes and businesses after storms and disasters.

    Can you figure it out?
