Hindu temple set on fire in Pakistan over blasphemy


[Reuters] Hundreds of angry Muslims attacked a Hindu temple and set it on fire in southern Pakistan overnight following a rumour that a member of the Hindu community had desecrated the Koran, police and community leaders said on Sunday.

A Hindu temple burns after it was attacked in Larkana by Muslims, southern Pakistan’s Sindh province, March 15, 2014.

The incident took place just before midnight on Saturday after locals in Larkana district alleged that Sangeet Kumar, 42, had torn out pages of Islam’s holy book and tossed them down on the street from the roof of his home.

“Our Dharamshala (community centre) has been gutted and the temple has been partially damaged. All the statues have been destroyed by the attackers,” Kalpana Devi, chairperson of the local Hindu committee, told Reuters.

Hundreds of students from local Islamic seminaries attacked the temple holding batons, one witness, Javed Shah, said. Police arrived quickly to protect Kumar from the angry crowd.

“They acted smartly and took him out after making him put on a police uniform to save him from the wrath of the crowd,” said Shah.

“It took nearly 20 minutes to break down the doors (of the temple) before they entered the compound and set it on fire. They also set fire to the temple before ransacking it.”

Sindh province, where the attack took place, is home to most of Pakistan’s small Hindu community which numbers about two million among a population of about 180 million.

Pakistan’s rocky relationship with neighbouring India, a predominantly Hindu country, has fed tension between the two communities in smaller towns but outright acts of violence are rare.

Police said they were investigating the matter.

“The situation is not satisfactory,” Deputy Inspector General of Larkana, Khadim Rind, told Reuters. “Sanjeet Kumar has been accused of desecrating the holy book by the locals. The accused is in our custody.”

Tensions were high in the region following the incident, with Muslim protestors taking to the streets in several towns and setting fire to shops belonging to Hindus in the city of Usta Mohammad.

The Hindu Panchayat Council, a representative body of Hindu minorities, has appealed on Hindus to keep a low profile while celebrating the ongoing Holi festival of colours.

  1. JESUS OF NAZARETH PREACHED THIS SERMON:

    SERMON ON THE MOUNT

    MATTHEW 5
    The Beatitudes
    1And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. 2Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:
    3″Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
    5Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
    6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
    7Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
    8Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
    9Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
    10Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11″Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
    Believers Are Salt and Light
    13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
    14″You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
    Christ Fulfills the Law
    17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
    Murder Begins in the Heart
    21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, “Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, “You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. 23Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.
    26Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.
    Adultery in the Heart
    27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not commit adultery.’
    28But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. 30And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
    Marriage Is Sacred and Binding
    31 “Furthermore it has been said, “Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.
    Jesus Forbids Oaths
    33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, “You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ 34But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37But let your “Yes’ be “Yes,’ and your “No,’ “No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
    Go the Second Mile
    38 “You have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.
    Love Your Enemies
    43 “You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
    44But 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, 45that 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. 46For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

    MATTHEW 6

    Do Good to Please God

    1″Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.
    The Model Prayer
    5″And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
    8″Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. 9In this manner, therefore, pray:
    Our Father in heaven,
    Hallowed be Your name.
    10Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done
    On earth as it is in heaven.
    11Give us this day our daily bread.
    12And forgive us our debts,
    As we forgive our debtors.
    13And do not lead us into temptation,
    But deliver us from the evil one.
    For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
    14″For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
    Fasting to Be Seen Only by God
    16 “Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
    Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
    19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
    The Lamp of the Body
    22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
    You Cannot Serve God and Riches
    24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
    Do Not Worry
    25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
    27Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
    28″So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
    31″Therefore do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?’ or “What shall we drink?’ or “What shall we wear?’ 32For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

    MATTHEW 7

    Do Not Judge

    1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?
    4Or how can you say to your brother, “Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
    6″Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
    Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking
    7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
    The Narrow Way
    13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
    You Will Know Them by Their Fruits
    15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
    19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
    I Never Knew You
    21 “Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
    Build on the Rock
    24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
    26″But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
    28And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, 29for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

    • Lucky bin Pastor, You fondly quoted this verse : Matthew 7:21

      “Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

      Do YOU notice the words : “but he who does The WILL of MY FATHER in heaven”??

      THAT is what the MUSLIMS do….they believe in the WILL of ONE God and do HIS Will
      as stipulated in the Quran!

      Jesus says, if anybody does ANYTHING in his name even if they cast out devils, and many other wonders they DO… like children’s molestation in the Churches…..”“I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!”.

      Jesus says : DO EVERYTHING in the NAME of GOD…and that is what MUSLIMS do and believe in Jesus as the Messenger of God!

      You have quoted the proof of worship of ONLY ONE God in the Bible. Now, do you want to still believe in the Trinity???

      • JUST LIKE YOUR FALSE ILLITERATE PROPHET, YOU ALSO DON’T READ PROPERLY! YOU ASSUME FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH BELIEVE IN THE TRINITY! ROMAN CATHOLICS & PROTESTANTS BELIEVE IN THE TRINITY! BUT THE FIRST FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH DIDN’T TEACH THE TRINITY, BUT THEY DID TEACH ABOUT FALSE PROPHETS LIKE MUHAMMAD! JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH & THE LIFE! JESUS IS NOT GOD, HE IS FROM GOD! JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE LIFE FORCE – THE CREATOR! JESUS BRINGS LIFE, EVEN TO THE DEAD! I THANK JESUS FOR MUHAMMAD! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF EVIL! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF HATE! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF DEPRAVITY! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF DARKNESS! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF SENSUALITY! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRUE PROPHET & A FALSE ONE! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF IGNORANCE! WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT HAVE SEEN THE FACE OF HEDONISM. WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT HAVE SEE A DEMON IN HUMAN FORM. MUHAMMAD WAS THE MOON! JESUS IS THE SUN! THE MOON CAN ONLY REFLECT THE LIGHT OF THE SUN! THE SUN GIVES LIFE! JESUS IS THE TRUTH. HE IS THE TRUE PROPHET! HIS WORDS GIVE LIFE! MUHAMMAD WAS THE LIE! MUHAMMAD WAS A FALSE PROPHET! HIS WORDS BRING DEATH! JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH & THE LIFE! JESUS IS NOT GOD, HE IS FROM GOD! JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE LIFE FORCE – THE CREATOR! JESUS BRINGS LIFE, EVEN TO THE DEAD! MAY THE LIFE FORCE BE WITH YOU! THE INCREDIBLE TEACHINGS OF MOHAMMED WOMEN Women are deficient in mind and religion. Muhammad asked some women, “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half that of a man?” The women said, “yes,” He said, “This is because of the deficiency of the woman’s mind. ” Vol. 3:826 Muhammad to women: “I have not seen any one more deficient in intelligence and religion than you.” Vol. 2:541 The majority of people in hell are women. Muhammad said, “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers are women. ” Vol. 1:28, 301; Vol. 2:161; Vol. 7:124 Women are a bad omen. Muhammad said, ” Bad omen is in the woman, the house and the horse.” Vol. 7:30 Women are harmful to men. Muhammad said, “After me I have not left any affliction more harmful to men than women.” Vol. 7:33 Women may not wear wigs. Muhammad said, ” Don’t wear false hair for Allah sends His curse upon such ladies who lengthen their hair artificially.” Vol. 7:133 SEX AND MARRIAGE Muhammad’s sexual strength is equal to 30 men. Anas said, “The prophet used to visit all his wives in an hour round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number.” I asked Anas, “Had the prophet the strength for it?” Anas replied, “We used to say that the prophet was given the strength of thirty (men). ” Vol. 1:268 Muhammad married a 6-year-old child. “Narrated Aisha that the prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old.” Vol. 7:64 Allah hurries to please Muhammad’s sexual desires. When the Quranic verse that allows Muhammad to postpone the turn of any wife was revealed, and when Muhammad said that Allah allowed him to marry his adopted son’s wife, Aisha (one of his wives) told him, “O Allah’s Apostle I do not see but that your Lord hurries in pleasing you. ” Vol. 7:48 When a woman is divorced irrevocably, she can not return to her husband until she marries (including having sexual intercourse) with another man. “Narrated Aisha: The wife of Rifaa Al-Qurazi came to Allah’s Apostle and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle, Rifaa divorced me irrevocably. After him I married Abdur-Rahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi who proved to be impotent.’ Allah’s Apostle said to her, ‘Perhaps you want to return to Rifaa? Nay (You cannot return to Rifaa) until you and Abdur-Rahman (the impotent man) engage in sexual intercourse!” Vol. 7:186 HUMAN RIGHTS Islam is to be imposed by force. Muhammad said, “I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and whoever says, ” None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, his life and property will be saved by me.” (otherwise it will not). Vol. 4:196 Apostasy is punishable by death. Muhammad said, “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.” Vol. 9:57 A Muslim must not be killed if he kills a non-Muslim. Muhammad said, ” No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir” (infidel). Vol. 9:50 Ethnic cleansing is practised. Muhammad said to the Jews, “You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle (Mohammed) and I want to expel you from this land (The Arabian Peninsula), so, if anyone owns property, he is permitted to sell it.” Vol. 4:392 Muhammad’s last words at his deathbed were: “Turn the pagans (non-Muslims) out of the Arabian Peninsula.” Vol. 5:716 ETERNAL SECURITY No assurance of Salvation. Muhammad said. “By Allah, though I am the apostle of Allah, yet I do not know what Allah will do to me.” Vol. 5:266 God punishes a deceased if his relatives weep. Muhammad said, “The deceased is punished because of the weeping of his relatives.” Vol. 2:375 When you speak badly about a deceased, the deceased will go to hell. Muhammad said, “You praised this, so Paradise has been affirmed to him, and you spoke badly of this, so hell has been affirmed to him. You people are Allah’s witnesses on earth.” Vol. 2:448 Urine on your clothes will bring punishment from God. Muhammad said, “The deceased person is being tortured in the grave not for a great thing to avoid, it is for being soiled with his urine. ” Vol. 2:460 Holy war (Jihad) is a guarantee of heaven. Muhammad said, “The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostle, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to paradise (if he is killed). ” Vol. 1:35 MEDICINE Drinking camel’s urine will make you healthy. “The prophet ordered them to follow his camels, and drink their milk and urine, so they followed the camels and drank their milk and urine till their bodies became healthy.” Vol. 7:590 Fever is from the heat of hell. Muhammad said, ” Fever is from the heat of hell, so put it out (cool it) with water.” Vol. 7:619 A fly in your drink is a cure. Muhammad said, “If a housefly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease. ” Vol. 4:537 How the baby’s looks are determined. Muhammad said, “As for the child, if the man’s discharge precedes the woman’s discharge, the child attracts the similarity of the man, and if the woman’s discharge precedes the man’s, then the child attracts the similarity of the woman.” Vol. 5:275 MISCELLANEOUS If you eat garlic don’t come to the place of worship. Muhammad said, “Whosoever ate from this plant (i.e. garlic) should not enter the mosque.” Vol. 1:812 Effect of evil eye Mohammed said, “The effect of an evil eye is a fact. ” Vol. 7:636 Which shoe you should put on first. Muhammad said, “If you want to put on your shoes, put on the right shoe first, and if you want them off, take the left one first.” Vol. 7:747 Breathing in your drink is bad. Muhammad said, “Don’t breath into your drinking utensil.” Vol. 1:156 God frightens his devotees with eclipse. Muhammad said, “The sun and the moon are two signs amongst the signs of Allah and they do not eclipse because of the death of someone but Allah frightens His devotees with them. ” Vol. 2:158 Satan urinates in people’s ears, when they don’t wake up for prayer. Narrated Abdullah: the prophet was told that a person had kept on sleeping till morning and had not got up for the prayer. The prophet said, “Satan urinated in his ears.” Vol. 2:245 Yawning is from Satan. The prophet said, “Yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: “Ha”, Satan will laugh at him.” Vol. 2:158 Stars are missiles, which God uses to hit the devils. The creation of stars is for three purposes, i.e., as decoration of the sky, as missiles to hit the devils, and as signs to guide travellers. Vol. 2:158 STUPID HADITHS MOHAMMED CHOKED SATAN WITH HIS BARE HANDS Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet once offered the prayer and said, “Satan came in front of me and tried to interrupt my prayer, but Allah gave me an upper hand on him and I choked him. No doubt, I thought of tying him to one of the pillars of the mosque till you get up in the morning and see him. ….Then Allah made him (Satan) return with his head down (humiliated).” Sahih Bukhari 2:22:301 WATER MIXED WITH DEAD DOGS & MENSTRUAL CLOTHES STILL CLEAN: Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri: The people asked the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him): Can we perform ablution out of the well of Buda’ah, which is a well into which menstrual clothes, dead dogs and stinking things were thrown? He replied: Water is pure and is not defiled by anything. Abu Dawud 1:66 , See Also Abu Dawud 1:67 Fever comes from the heat of Hell The Prophet said, “Fever is from the heat of Hell, so abate fever with water.” Sahih Bukhari 7:71:621, See Also Sahih Bukhari 7:71:619, Sahih Bukhari 7:71:620, Sahih Bukhari 7:71:622 Wicked wigs Narrated Abdullah (bin Mus’ud): Allah’s Apostle has cursed the lady who uses false hair. Sahih Bukhari 6:60:409 Divinely cooked and delivered pot of meat fixes Prophet’s performance problems in bed Waqidi said: “The prophet of Allah used to say that I was among those who have little strength for intercourse. Then Allah sent me a pot with cooked meat. After I ate from it, I found strength any time I wanted to do the work.” Ibn Sa’d’s Kitab Tabaqat Al-Kubra, Volume 8, Page 200 Sheep owners are humble while horse and camel owners are arrogant Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The main source of disbelief is in the east. Pride and arrogance are characteristics of the owners of horses and camels, and those bedouins who are busy with their camels and pay no attention to Religion; while modesty and gentleness are the characteristics of the owners of sheep.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:520 A drink that gives you wings Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said “If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:537 A crying tree misses the Prophet’s sermons Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: The Prophet used to stand by a tree or a date-palm on Friday. Then an Ansari woman or man said. “O Allah’s Apostle! Shall we make a pulpit for you?” He replied, “If you wish.” So they made a pulpit for him and when it was Friday, he proceeded towards the pulpit (for delivering the sermon). The date-palm cried like a child! The Prophet descended (the pulpit) and embraced it while it continued moaning like a child being quieted. The Prophet said, “It was crying for (missing) what it used to hear of religious knowledge given near to it.” Sahih Bukhari 4:56:784 Trees as informers Narrated ‘Abdur-Rahman: “I asked Masruq, ‘Who informed the Prophet about the Jinns at the night when they heard the Qur’an?’ He said, ‘Your father ‘Abdullah informed me that a tree informed the Prophet about them.\'” Sahih Bukhari 5:58:199 A saluting stone or a delusional Prophet? Jabir b. Samura reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: I recognise the stone in Mecca which used to pay me salutations before my advent as a Prophet and I recognise that even now. Sahih Muslim 30:5654 Hellfire complains to Allah Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The (Hell) Fire complained to its Lord saying, ‘O my Lord! My different parts eat up each other.’ So, He allowed it to take two breaths, one in the winter and the other in summer, and this is the reason for the severe heat and the bitter cold you find (in weather).” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:482 Abdomen contradicts Allah Narrated Abu Said: A man came to the prophet and said, ‘My brother has got loose motions. The Prophet said, Let him drink honey.” The man again (came) and said, ‘I made him drink (honey) but that made him worse.’ The Prophet said, ‘Allah has said the Truth, and the abdomen of your brother has told a lie.” Sahih Bukhari 7:71:614 One sneeze, two sneeze, three sneeze, four Malik related to me from Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr from his father that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “If a man sneezes, invoke a blessing on him. Then if he sneezes, invoke a blessing on him. Then if he sneezes, invoke a blessing on him. Then if he sneezes, say, ‘You have a cold’.” Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr said, “I don’t know whether it was after the third or fourth.” Al-Muwatta 54 2.4 Allah likes sneezing but hates yawning Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Allah likes sneezing and dislikes yawning, so if someone sneezes and then praises Allah, then it is obligatory on every Muslim who heard him, to say: May Allah be merciful to you (Yar-hamuka-l-lah). But as regards yawning, it is from satan, so one must try one’s best to stop it, if one says ‘Ha’ when yawning, satan will laugh at him.” Sahih Bukhari 8:73:242 Allah, rain there, not here! Summary: People’s livestock were dying because of lack of water. On request, Muhammad prayed to Allah who instantly brought so much rain that that caused livestock to die due to excess of water. Then Muhammad told Allah to rain around them, not on them and the rain stopped. Narrated Sharik: Anas bin Malik said, “A person entered the Mosque on a Friday through the gate facing the Daril-Qada’ and Allah’s Apostle was standing delivering the Khutba (sermon). The man stood in front of Allah’s Apostle and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle, livestock are dying and the roads are cut off; please pray to Allah for rain.’ So Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) raised both his hands and said, ‘O Allah! Bless us with rain. O Allah! Bless us with rain. O Allah! Bless us with rain!” Anas added, “By Allah, there were no clouds in the sky and there was no house or building between us and the mountain of Silas’. Then a big cloud like a shield appeared from behind it (i.e. Silas Mountain) and when it came in the middle of the sky, it spread and then rained. By Allah! We could not see the sun for a week. The next Friday, a person entered through the same gate and Allah’s Apostle was delivering the Friday Khutba and the man stood in front of him and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! The livestock are dying and the roads are cut off; Please pray to Allah to withhold rain.’ ” Anas added, “Allah’s Apostle raised both his hands and said, ‘O Allah! Round about us and not on us. O Allah!’ On the plateaus, on the mountains, on the hills, in the valleys and on the places where trees grow.’ ” Anas added, “The rain stopped and we came out, walking in the sun.” Sharik asked Anas whether it was the same person who had asked for rain the previous Friday. Anas replied that he did not know. Sahih Bukhari 2:17:127 Fight polytheists by trimming moustache Ibn Umar said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be opon him) said: Act against the polytheists, trim closely the moustache and grow beard. Sahih Muslim 2:500, See also: Sahih Muslim 2:501 Allah loves sneezes (aacchoo!) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Allah loves sneezing but dislikes yawning; so if anyone of you sneezes and then praises Allah, every Muslim who hears him (praising Allah) has to say Tashmit to him. But as regards yawning, it is from Satan, so if one of you yawns, he should try his best to stop it, for when anyone of you yawns, Satan laughs at him.” Sahih Bukhari 8:73:245 Pus better than poetry Abu Sa`id Khudri reported: We were going with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). As we reached the place (known as) Arj there met (us) a poet who had been reciting poetry. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Catch the satan or detain the satan, for filling the belly of a man with pus is better than stuffing his brain with poetry. Sahih Muslim 28:5611 Spit on the left for protection against bad dreams Narrated Abu Qatada: The Prophet said, “A good dream that comes true is from Allah, and a bad dream is from Satan, so if anyone of you sees a bad dream, he should seek refuge with Allah from Satan and should spit on the left, for the bad dream will not harm him.” Sahih Bukhari 9:87:115 Death be upon you, too Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle said, “When the Jews greet you, they usually say, ‘As-Samu ‘alaikum (Death be on you),’ so you should say (in reply to them), ‘Wa’alaikum (And on you).” Sahih Bukhari 8:74:274 The almighty wind Narrated Anas: Whenever a strong wind blew, anxiety appeared on the face of the Prophet (fearing that wind might be a sign of Allah’s wrath).

Abu Dawud 1:205 Narrated ‘Abbas bin Tamim: My uncle asked Allah’s Apostle about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the prayer. Allah’ Apostle replied: “He should not leave his prayers unless he hears sound or smells something.” Sahih Bukhari 1:4:139 Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Allah does not accept prayer of anyone of you if he does Hadath (passes wind) till he performs the ablution (anew).” Sahih Bukhari 9:86:86 Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Zam’a: The Prophet forbade laughing at a person who passes wind. Sahih Bukhari 8:73:68 And Allah taught Adam all the names as follows: He taught him the name of everything, down to fart and little fart. Tabari I 267 Allah curses tatooed women Narrated Ibn Mas’ud: Allah has cursed those women who practise tattooing or get it done for themselves, and those who remove hair from their faces, and those who create spaces between their teeth artificially to look beautiful, such ladies as change the features created by Allah. Why then shall I not curse those whom Allah’s Apostle has cursed and who are cursed in Allah’s Book too? Sahih Bukhari 7:72:826 Dye your hair because Jews and Christians don’t Narrated Abu Huraira : The Prophet said, “Jews and Christians do not dye their hair so you should do the opposite of what they do. Sahih Bukhari 7:72:786 Greeting order Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “The young should greet the old, the passer by should greet the sitting one, and the small group of persons should greet the large group of persons. ” Sahih Bukhari 8:74:250 Well hello, hello, hello Narrated Anas: Whenever Allah’s Apostle greeted somebody, he used to greet him three times, and if he spoke a sentence, he used to repeat it thrice.

Sahih Bukhari 8:75:419 Overweight omen Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “On the Day of Resurrection, a huge fat man will come who will not weigh, the weight of the wing of a mosquito in Allah’s Sight.” and then the Prophet added, ‘We shall not give them any weight on the Day of Resurrection’ Sahih Bukhari 6:60:253 Searching for the meaning in life… and 3 stones Narrated Abdullah: The Prophet went out to answer the call of nature and asked me to bring three stones.

Sahih Bukhari 7:62:159 Genies like bones and animal dung Narrated Abu Huraira: That once he was in the, company of the Prophet carrying a water pot for his ablution and for cleaning his private parts. While he was following him carrying it (i.e. the pot), the Prophet said, “Who is this?” He said, “I am Abu Huraira.” The Prophet said, “Bring me stones in order to clean my private parts, and do not bring any bones or animal dung.” Abu Huraira went on narrating: So I brought some stones, carrying them in the corner of my robe till I put them by his side and went away. When he finished, I walked with him and asked, “What about the bone and the animal dung?” He said, “They are of the food of Jinns. The delegate of Jinns of (the city of) Nasibin came to me–and how nice those Jinns were–and asked me for the remains of the human food. I invoked Allah for them that they would never pass by a bone or animal dung but find food on them.” Sahih Bukhari 5:58:200 Incantations while having sex Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said, “If anyone of you, when having sexual relation with his wife, say: ‘In the name of Allah. O Allah!

Sahih Bukhari 2:24:495 Looking at genitals or talking during intercourse may cause disabilities for child Narrated by Abi Hurairah that the prophet PBUH said: If one of you got engaged in intercourse, they shouldn’t look at the genital for that inherits blindness, and not talk too much for that inherits aphonia (lack of the ability to talk). Hadith translated by FFI forum member Say “Allah willing” during intercourse to give birth to Islamic militants Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “Once Solomon, son of David said, ‘(By Allah) Tonight I will have sexual intercourse with one hundred (or ninety-nine) women each of whom will give birth to a knight who will fight in Allah’s Cause.’ On that a (i.e. if Allah wills) but he did not say, Allah willing.’ Therefore only one of those women conceived and gave birth to a half-man. By Him in Whose Hands Muhammad’s life is, if he had said, “Allah willing’, (he would have begotten sons) all of whom would have been knights striving in Allah’s Cause.” Sahih Bukhari 4:52:74i Dirty teeth can invalidate a fast Swallowing bits of food that may be left between the teeth is regarded as eating, so it invalidates the fast… Ibn Qudaamah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Mughni, 3/260: If a person has food between his teeth, one of the following two scenarios must apply: 1 — It is a small amount that he cannot spit out, so he swallows it. This does not invalidate his fast, because it cannot be avoided. It is like saliva. Ibn al-Mundhir said: The scholars are unanimously agreed on that. 2 — It is a large amount and he can spit it out. If he spits it out there is no sin on him, but if he swallows it deliberately, his fast is invalidated according to the majority of scholars, because he has swallowed food that he could have spat out willingly when he is mindful of his fast. So this breaks the fast just as if he deliberately started eating. End quote. Islam Q&A – Fatwa #78438 “This Muhammad of yours is a dwarf and fat” Narrated AbuBarzah: AbdusSalam ibn AbuHazim AbuTalut said: I saw AbuBarzah who came to visit Ubaydullah ibn Ziyad. Then a man named Muslim who was there in the company mentioned it to me. When Ubaydullah saw him, he said: This Muhammad of yours is a dwarf and fat. The old man (i.e. AbuBarzah) understood it. So he said: I did not think that I should remain among people who would make me feel ashamed of the company of Muhammad (peace be upon him). Thereupon Ubaydullah said: The company of Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a honour for you, not a disgrace. He added: I called for you to ask about the reservoir. Did you hear the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) mentioning anything about it? AbuBarzah said: Yes, not once, twice, thrice, four times or five times. If anyone believes it, may Allah not supply him with water from it. He then went away angrily. Abu Dawud 40:4731 The fact that the old man AbuBarzah ‘understood it’ implies that Ubaydullah’s description of Muhammad as a fat dwarf was accurate. Watermelons and cucumbers “If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey]. In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”. “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”. Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129 A Muslim Shia website notes: “Maybe this is another reason why ‘Umar the Khalifa never went on jihad: somebody had to stay behind and organize the cucumber distribution.” Companions of Muhammad masturbated during Jihad “If a man is torn between continued desire or releasing it, and if this man does not have a wife or he has a slave-girl but he does not marry, then if a man is overwhelmed by desire, and he fears that he will suffer because of this (someone like a prisoner, or a traveller, or a pauper), then it is permissible for him to masturbate, and Ahmad (ibn Hanbal) is explicit on this. Furthermore, it is narrated that the Companions of the Prophet (s) used to masturbate while they were on military expeditions or travelling”. Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129 Don’t flash Allah Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet had forbidden: (A) the Mulamasa and Munabadha (bargains), (B) the offering of two prayers, one after the morning compulsory prayer till the sun rises, and the others, after the ‘Asr prayer till the sun sets (C) He also forbade that one should sit wearing one garment, nothing of which covers his private parts (D) and prevent them from exposure to the sky; (E) he also forbade Ishtimal-as-Samma’. Sahih Bukhari 7:72:709 Doodling is a sin! The scholars of the Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas said: Whatever is images of animate beings such as insects and other living beings is not permissible, even if it is drawn on a blackboard or on paper, and even if the purpose of it is to help in teaching, because it is not essential and because of the general meaning of the evidence concerning that. (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 1/685) What is prohibited is making images of animate beings, whether that is engraving or painting on walls or fabric or paper or woven cloth, and whether it is done with a feather or a pen or other equipment, whether the thing is drawn as it is or whether some imaginary element is introduced, so it is made smaller or larger or more beautiful or more ugly, or it is drawn as a stick figure. (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 1/696) Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ibraaheem (may Allah have mercy on him) said: One of the most serious of evils is making images of animate beings and keeping them and using them. There is no difference between that which is three dimensional and that which is on paper, whether it is produced by machines or otherwise. This meaning was mentioned by al-Nawawi in Sharh Saheeh Muslim, and he mentioned that it is the view of the four imams. The hadeeths which emphatically warned against that are well known. (Fataawa Rasaa’il Muhammad ibn Ibraaheem, 13/173) Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said: Making images of animate beings, whether they are human or otherwise, is undoubtedly haraam and is a major sin, because it is proven that the one who does that is cursed by the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). This is clear, whether they are three-dimensional or drawn by hand. (Majmoo’ Fataawa wa Rasaa’il Ibn ‘Uthaymeen 2/288) Islam Q&A – Fatwa No. 129446 Animals and living things Muttaqi (God-fearing) monkeys Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them. Sahih Bukhari 5:58:188 According to `Amr b. Maymûn : I was in Yemen. Amongst the female goats of my people, I saw that at a heightened place, a male monkey brought along a female monkey and slept while keeping her hand beneath his head. During this time, a young monkey came and signaled the female monkey. She softly removed her hand from beneath the male monkey’s head and went with the young monkey. She fornicated with him and I was watching it. After that, the female monkey returned and was softly trying to put her hand back under the male monkey’s head that he woke up bewildered and smelled her and then screamed. All the monkeys gathered thereafter. He would point towards her and scream constantly (i.e. she has committed adultery). At last the other monkeys went towards the right left and brought along that young monkey whom I recognized. They dug a hole for this young monkey and the female one and stoned them to death. So I saw monkeys stoning to death too besides the human race. Taiseer-ul-Baari, volume 2, Page 626 This is consistent with the Qur’an in its claim that Jews (who at one time practiced stoning) were turned into apes: “And you know well the story of those among you who broke Sabbath. We said to them: “Be apes—despised and hated by all. Thus We made their end a warning to the people of their time and succeeding generation, and an admonition for God-fearing people.” Qur’an 2:65 Unpaid debt to turn into talking snake on Judgement Day Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “On the Day of Resurrection the Kanz (Treasure or wealth of which, Zakat has not been paid) of anyone of you will appear in the shape of a huge bald-headed poisonous male snake and its owner will run away from it, but it will follow him and say, ‘I am your Kanz.\'” The Prophet added, “By Allah, that snake will keep on following him until he stretches out his hand and let the snake swallow it.” Allah’s Apostle added, “If the owner of camels does not pay their Zakat, then, on the Day of Resurrection those camels will come to him and will strike his face with their hooves.” Sahih Bukhari 9:86:89 Monkeys and pigs are humans who once played music Narrated Abu ‘Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash’ari: that he heard the Prophet saying, “From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, ‘Return to us tomorrow.’ Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection.” Sahih Bukhari 7:69:494 Zoophilia pardonable but not homosexuality Abu Dawud 38:4448 prescribes the death sentence for an unmarried man who commits sodomy but there is no prescribed punishment for having sex with an animal: Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: There is no prescribed punishment for one who has sexual intercourse with an animal. Abu Dawud 38:4450 Sheeps prefer female babies Narrated Umm Kurz: I heard the Prophet (may peace be upon him) say: Let the birds stay in their roosts. She said: I also heard him say: Two sheep are to be sacrificed for a boy and one for a girl, but it does you no harm whether they are male or female. Abu Dawud 15:2829 Have flu? Try fresh camel urine The climate of Medina did not suit some people, so the Prophet ordered them to follow his shepherd, i.e. his camels, and drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they followed the shepherd that is the camels and drank their milk and urine till their bodies became healthy. Sahih Bukhari 7:71:590 YOU AIN’T NOTHING BUT A HOUND DOG! Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs… ” Sahih Bukhari 1:9:490 Goat ate my Qur’an ‘Aisha: “The verse of the stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my bed. When the messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.” Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal. vol. 6, p. 269; Sunan Ibn Majah, p. 626; Ibn Qutbah, Tawil Mukhtalafi ‘l-Hadith (Cairo: Maktaba al-Kulliyat al-Azhariyya. 1966) p. 310; As-Suyuti, ad-Durru ‘l-Manthur, vol. 2, p. 13 HOLY COCKS & DEVIL DONKEYS Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “When you hear the crowing of cocks, ask for Allah’s Blessings for (their crowing indicates that) they have seen an angel. And when you hear the braying of donkeys, seek Refuge with Allah from satan for (their braying indicates) that they have seen a satan.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:522 COWGATE Narrated Abu Huraira: Once Allah’s Apostle; offered the Morning Prayer and then faced the people and said, “While a man was driving a cow, he suddenly rode over it and beat it. The cow said, “We have not been created for this, but we have been created for sloughing.” On that the people said astonishingly, “Glorified be Allah! A cow speaks!” The Prophet said, “I believe this, and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar too, believe it, although neither of them was present there. PART 2 While a person was amongst his sheep, a wolf attacked and took one of the sheep. The man chased the wolf till he saved it from the wolf, where upon the wolf said, ‘You have saved it from me; but who will guard it on the day of the wild beasts when there will be no shepherd to guard them except me?” The people said surprisingly, “Glorified be Allah! A wolf speaks!” The Prophet said, “But I believe this, and Abu Bakr and ‘Umar too, believe this, although neither of them was present there.” Sahih Bukhari 4:56:677 More horse dung and urine equals more heavenly rewards Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “If somebody keeps a horse in Allah’s Cause motivated by his faith in Allah and his belief in His Promise, then he will be rewarded on the Day of Resurrection for what the horse has eaten or drunk and for its dung and urine.” Sahih Bukhari 4:52:105 Lost camels can be returned to their owners but not sheep Narrated Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani A man asked the Prophet about the picking up of a “Luqata” (fallen lost thing). The Prophet replied, “Recognize and remember its tying material and its container, and make public announcement (about it) for one year, then utilize it but give it to its owner if he comes.” Then the person asked about the lost camel. On that, the Prophet got angry and his cheeks or his Face became red and he said, “You have no concern with it as it has its water container, and its feet and it will reach water, and eat (the leaves) of trees till its owner finds it.” The man then asked about the lost sheep. The Prophet replied, “It is either for you, for your brother (another person) or for the wolf.” Sahih Bukhari 1:3:91 A house may be set on fire by a mouse This hadith has been reported on the authority of Jabir through another chain of transmitters but with a slight variation of words:” The mouse may set the house on fire over its inhabitants.” Sahih Muslim 23:4994 Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’z-Zubayr al-Makki from Jabir ibn Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Lock the door, tie the waterskin, turn the vessel over or cover it, and put out the lamp. Shaytan does not open a locked door or untie a tied knot, or uncover a vessel. A mouse may set fire to people’s houses about them.” Al-Muwatta 49 10.21 YOU DIRTY RAT! The Prophet said, “A group of Israelites were lost. Nobody knows what they did. But I do not see them except that they were cursed and changed into rats, for if you put the milk of a she-camel in front of a rat, it will not drink it, but if the milk of a sheep is put in front of it, it will drink it.” PART 2 I told this to Ka’b who asked me, “Did you hear it from the Prophet ?” I said, “Yes.” Ka’b asked me the same question several times; I said to Ka’b. “Do I read the Torah? (i.e. I tell you this from the Prophet.)” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:524 Race relations, the Islamic way Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “Listen and obey (your chief) even if an Ethiopian whose head is like a raisin were made your chief.” Sahih Bukhari 1:11:662 In a dream, Satan cannot imitate the Prophet Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for Satan cannot imitate my shape. Sahih Bukhari 9:87:123, See also Sahih Bukhari 9:87:124, Sahih Bukhari 9:87:125, and Sahih Bukhari 9:87:126 Don’t be late, the angels are watching Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “On every Friday the angels take heir stand at every gate of the mosques to write the names of the people chronologically (i.e. according to the time of their arrival for the Friday prayer and when the Imam sits (on the pulpit) they fold up their scrolls and get ready to listen to the sermon.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:433 Allah wants to see you…naked Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet said, “You will meet Allah barefooted, naked, walking on feet, and uncircumcised.” Sahih Bukhari 8:76:531, See also Sahih Bukhari 8:76:532, Sahih Bukhari 8:76:533, and Sahih Bukhari 8:76:533 Women are just like camels Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “Women are just like camels, out of one hundred, one can hardly find a single camel suitable to ride.” Sahih Bukhari 8:76:505 Flag fixed behind the buttocks It is narrated on the authority of Abu Sa’id that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: On the Day of Judgment there will be a flag fixed behind the buttocks of every person guilty of the breach of faith. Sahih Muslim 19:4309 Satanic influences Satan ties three knots at back of our head while we sleep Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “During your sleep, Satan knots three knots at the back of the head of each of you, and he breathes the following words at each knot, ‘The night is, long, so keep on sleeping,’ If that person wakes up and celebrates the praises of Allah, then one knot is undone, and when he performs ablution the second knot is undone, and when he prays, all the knots are undone, and he gets up in the morning lively and gay, otherwise he gets up dull and gloomy. ” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:491 SATAN’S LULLABY Narrated ‘Abdullah : A person was mentioned before the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and had not got up for the prayer. The Prophet said, “Satan urinated in his ears.” Sahih Bukhari 2:21:245 WHY DO ARABS HAVE BIG NOSES? Abu Huraira reported: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said. When any one of you awakes up from sleep and performs ablution, he must clean his nose three times, for the devil spends the night in the interior of his nose. SATAN’S LULLABY Narrated ‘Abdullah : A person was mentioned before the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and had not got up for the prayer. The Prophet said, “Satan urinated in his ears.” Sahih Bukhari 2:21:245 Sahih Muslim 2:462 Satan tries to interrupt Muhammad Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet offered a prayer, and (after finishing) he said, “Satan came in front of me trying persistently to divert my attention from the prayer, but Allah gave me the strength to over-power him.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:504 Satan gets unlimited hospital passes Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:506 Satan & yawning Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: ‘Ha’, Satan will laugh at him.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:509 Man talks to Satan for 3 nights and Satan steals his food Narrated Abu Huraira Allah’s Apostle deputed me to keep Sadaqat (al-Fitr) of Ramadan. A comer came and started taking handfuls of the foodstuff (of the Sadaqa) (stealthily). I took hold of him and said, “By Allah, I will take you to Allah’s Apostle .” He said, “I am needy and have many dependents, and I am in great need.” I released him, and in the morning Allah’s Apostle asked me, “What did your prisoner do yesterday?” I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! The person complained of being needy and of having many dependents, so, I pitied him and let him go.” Allah’s Apostle said, “Indeed, he told you a lie and he will be coming again.” I believed that he would show up again as Allah’s Apostle had told me that he would return. So, I waited for him watchfully. When he (showed up and) started stealing handfuls of foodstuff, I caught hold of him again and said, “I will definitely take you to Allah’s Apostle. He said, “Leave me, for I am very needy and have many dependents. I promise I will not come back again.” I pitied him and let him go. In the morning Allah’s Apostle asked me, “What did your prisoner do.” I replied, “O Allah’s Apostle! He complained of his great need and of too many dependents, so I took pity on him and set him free.” Allah’s Apostle said, “Verily, he told you a lie and he will return.” I waited for him attentively for the third time, and when he (came and) started stealing handfuls of the foodstuff, I caught hold of him and said, “I will surely take you to Allah’s Apostle as it is the third time you promise not to return, yet you break your promise and come.” He said, “(Forgive me and) I will teach you some words with which Allah will benefit you.” I asked, “What are they?” He replied, “Whenever you go to bed, recite “Ayat-al-Kursi”– ‘Allahu la ilaha illa huwa-l-Haiy-ul Qaiyum’ till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and no satan will come near you till morning. ” So, I released him. In the morning, Allah’s Apostle asked, “What did your prisoner do yesterday?” I replied, “He claimed that he would teach me some words by which Allah will benefit me, so I let him go.” Allah’s Apostle asked, “What are they?” I replied, “He said to me, ‘Whenever you go to bed, recite Ayat-al-Kursi from the beginning to the end —- Allahu la ilaha illa huwa-lHaiy-ul-Qaiyum—-.’ He further said to me, ‘(If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you, and no satan will come near you till morning.’ (Abu Huraira or another sub-narrator) added that they (the companions) were very keen to do good deeds. The Prophet said, “He really spoke the truth, although he is an absolute liar. Do you know whom you were talking to, these three nights, O Abu Huraira?” Abu Huraira said, “No.” He said, “It was Satan.” Sahih Bukhari 3:38:505t FARTING SATAN Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “When the Adhan is pronounced Satan takes to his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight in order not to hear the Adhan. When the Adhan is completed he comes back and again takes to his heels when the Iqama is pronounced and after its completion he returns again till he whispers into the heart of the person (to divert his attention from his prayer) and makes him remember things which he does not recall to his mind before the prayer and that causes him to forget how much he has prayed.” Sahih Bukhari 1:11:582 SATAN THE CHILD MOLESTER Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:506 Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab: Abu Huraira said, “I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘There is none born among the off-spring of Adam, but Satan touches it. A child therefore, cries loudly at the time of birth because of the touch of Satan, except Mary and her child.” Then Abu Huraira recited: “And I seek refuge with You for her and for her offspring from the outcast Satan.” (3.36) Sahih Bukhari Book 55 No. 641 Call of nature related to offensive and wicked things Narrated Anas: Whenever the Prophet went to answer the call of nature, he used to say, “Allah-umma inni a’udhu bika minal khubuthi wal khaba’ith i.e. O Allah, I seek Refuge with You from all offensive and wicked things (evil deeds and evil spirits).” Sahih Bukhari 1:4:144 PARADISE: “appetizing vaginas” & “ever-erect” penises Abu Umama narrated: “The Messenger of God said, ‘Everyone that God admits into paradise will be married to 72 wives; two of them are houris and seventy of his inheritance of the [female] dwellers of hell. All of them will have libidinous sex organs and he will have an ever-erect penis.’ ” Sunan Ibn Maja, Zuhd (Book of Abstinence) 39 PART 2 “Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e. Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.” Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur’an, p. 351 Allah punishes Muhammad for Safiyah’s capture by making him fall off a camel Safiyah bint Huyay was a woman that Muhammad captured and married, after killing her husband. Narrated Anas bin Malik: We were in the company of the Prophet while returning from ‘Usfan, and Allah’s Apostle was riding his she camel keeping Safiya bint Huyay riding behind him. His she camel slipped and both of them fell down. Abu Talha jumped from his camel and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! May Allah sacrifice me for you.” The Prophet said, “Take care of the lady.” So, Abu Talha covered his face with a garment and went to Safiya and covered her with it, and then he set right the condition of their she camel so that both of them rode, and we were encircling Allah’s Apostle like a cover. When we approached Medina, the Prophet said, “We are returning with repentance and worshipping and praising our Lord.” He kept on saying this till he entered Medina. Sahih Bukhari 4:52:318 Tortured in the grave for peeing on himself Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: Once the Prophet, while passing through one of the grave-yards of Medina or Mecca heard the voices of 2 persons who were being tortured in their graves. The Prophet said, “These 2 persons are being tortured not for a major sin (to avoid).” The Prophet then added, “Yes! (they are being tortured for a major sin). Indeed, 1 of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine while the other used to go about gossiping. PART 2 The Prophet then asked for a green leaf of a date-palm tree, broke it into two pieces and put one on each grave. On being asked why he had done so, he replied, “I hope that their torture might be lessened, till these get dried.” Sahih Bukhari 1:4:215 TURN YOUR ARSE WEST, MY BOY! Narrated Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari: Allah’s Apostle said, “If anyone of you goes to an open space for answering the call of nature he should neither face nor turn his back towards the Qibla; he should either face the east or the west Sahih Bukhari 1:4:215 BLACK DOGS ARE DEVILS Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of ‘Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, his prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog. PART 2 I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguish it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as you are asking me, and he said: The black dog is a devil. Sahih Muslim 4:1032 Playing chess is evil Buraida reported on the authority of his father that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: He who played chess is like one who dyed his hand with the flesh and blood of swine. Sahih Muslim 28:5612 SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON ME Aminah and her vagina light According to accepted sirat, Muhammad’s mother had light coming out of her vagina when giving birth to him. When the prophet came out of his mothers vagina, the light covered the east and the west which reached all the way to Sham (Syria today) sirat ibn hisham 166 Free a Muslim slave, and save your private parts Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “If somebody manumits a Muslim slave, Allah will save from the Fire every part of his body for freeing the corresponding parts of the slave’s body, even his private parts will be saved from the Fire) because of freeing the slave’s private parts.” Sahih Bukhari 8:79:706 Don’t ever raise your head The sin of raising your head before the imam is so great, your face will transform into a donkey. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “Isn’t he who raises his head before the Imam afraid that Allah may transform his head into that of a donkey or his figure (face) into that of a donkey?” Sahih Bukhari 1:11:660 He pees like a woman Narrated Amr ibn al-‘As: AbdurRahman ibn Hasanah reported: I and Amr ibn al-‘As went to the Prophet (peace be upon him). He came out with a leather shield (in his hand). He covered himself with it and urinated. Then we said: Look at him. He is urinating as a woman does. The Prophet (peace be upon him), heard this and said: Do you not know what befell a person from amongst Banu Isra’il (the children of Israel)? When urine fell on them, they would cut off the place where the urine fell; but he (that person) forbade them (to do so), and was punished in his grave. Abu Dawud 1:22 COMMITT SUICIDE Whoso is wont to think (through envy) that Allah will not give him (Muhammad) victory in the world and the Hereafter (and is enraged at the thought of his victory), let him stretch a rope up to the roof (of his dwelling), and let him hang himself. Then let him see whether his strategy dispelleth that whereat he rageth!. Qur’an 22:15 Drunk water while standing up? Puke it out! Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: None of you should drink while standing; and if anyone forgets, he must vomit. Sahih Muslim 23:5022 2 things the Prophet loves: perfume and women Al-Hasan al-Basri wrote: “The Messenger of God said, “The only two things I cherish of the life of this world are women and perfume. Ibn Sa’d’s Kitab Tabaqat Al-Kubra, Volume 1, Page 380 Aisha said “The Prophet of God liked three things of this world: Perfume, women, and food; he had the [first] two, but missed food.” Ibn Sa’d’s Kitab Tabaqat Al-Kubra, Volume 1, Page 380 Don’t look up! Jabir b. Samura reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The people who lift their eyes towards the sky in Prayer should avoid it or they would lose their eyesight. Sahih Muslim 4:862 Abu Huraira reported: People should avoid lifting their eyes towards the sky while supplicating in prayer, otherwise their eyes would be snatched away. Sahih Muslim 4:863 15. Harm No. 14: Leads to Masturbation . . . Just as it is unlawful and forbidden to commit sexual intercourse with a strange man or woman, it is likewise forbidden to masturbate. Unfortunately, this sin has become widespread in this day and age. In some narrations of Hadith there are severe warnings against this sin. It has been mentioned that the person who masturbates shall be resurrected on the Day of Judgment with a pregnant hand. It has also been mentioned that the ناکح الید (the one who masturbates) is under the curse of Allah. Fulfilling one’s sexual desires in an unlawful manner is obviously impermissible. But one should also be cautious of excessive permissible sex. Too much sexual intercourse spoils the health and drains one’s strength. Spiritually, one does not get enjoyment in worship and Zikr. If also causes the child to be born weak and frail. It is for this very reason that the Buzurgs have advised to preserve the semen. After 15 to 30 days when there is a strong urge to have sex, only then should one fulfill one’s desire. The lion copulates once a year and from that it breeds offspring. Similarly, those people who have intercourse after long intervals of time produce strong and healthy children. Therefore, moderation is necessary in sexual relations with one’s wife, otherwise excessive sex can even lead to death. My Shaikh, Hazrat Phoulpoori (رحمۃ اللہ علیہ) narrated to us the incident of an Alim who had a very beautiful wife. Whenever he would come home from running errands and would see his wife, then he would not be able to control himself. He used have so much sexual relations that after six months, instead of discharging semen, blood started to ejaculate from his penis. This eventually led to a severe fever after which he died. Beauty was the cause of his death. This is why I advise to have moderation in permissible things as well. As for the unlawful, then my advice is not to even go near Haraam. May Allah Ta’ala grant us the ability to practice upon what has been said. Amen The 14 Harms Of Casting Evil Glances Shaikh ul Arab wal Ajam Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb Muhammad the inadvertent trend-setter has a temper tantrum Narrated Ibn. ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle wore a gold ring or a silver ring and placed its stone towards the palm of his hand and had the name ‘Muhammad, the Apostle of Allah’ engraved on it. The people also started wearing gold rings like it, but when the Prophet saw them wearing such rings, he threw away his own ring and said. “I will never wear it,” and then wore a silver ring, whereupon the people too started wearing silver rings. Ibn Umar added: After the Prophet Abu Bakr wore the ring, and then Umar and then ‘Uthman wore it till it fell in the Aris well from ‘Uthman. bin ‘Umar : Allah’s Apostle wore a gold ring, then he threw it and said, “I will never wear it.” The people also threw their (gold) rings. Sahih Bukhari 7:72:756, See also: Sahih Muslim 24:5210, and Sahih Bukhari 7:72:755 Wanna have an affair and steal things? Go ahead! Narrated Abu Dhar: The Prophet said, “Gabriel said to me, ‘Whoever amongst your followers die without having worshipped others besides Allah, will enter Paradise (or will not enter the (Hell) Fire).” The Prophet asked. “Even if he has committed illegal sexual intercourse or theft?” He replied, “Even then.” Sahih Bukhari 4:54:445 Prophet Muhammad’s BO-scented perfume, anyone? Narrated Thumama: Anas said, “Um Sulaim used to spread a leather sheet for the Prophet and he used to take a midday nap on that leather sheet at her home.” Anas added, “When the Prophet had slept, she would take some of his sweat and hair and collect it (the sweat) in a bottle and then mix it with Suk (a kind of perfume) while he was still sleeping. “When the death of Anas bin Malik approached, he advised that some of that Suk be mixed with his Hanut (perfume for embalming the dead body), and it was mixed with his Hanut. Sahih Bukhari 8:74:298 Moses slaps the Angel of Death Narrated Abu Huraira: The angel of death was sent to Moses and when he went to him, Moses slapped him severely, spoiling one of his eyes. The angel went back to his Lord, and said, “You sent me to a slave who does not want to die.”….. Sahih Bukhari 2:23:423,
        • Lucky the Pastor, I hope this is not VULGAR! You said :

          “JUST LIKE YOUR FALSE ILLITERATE PROPHET, YOU ALSO DON’T READ PROPERLY!”
          But you had previously said that Muhammad plagiarised the Quran! So, when he was unable to read properly how did he plagiarise???????????//

          You continued : (X) :”YOU ASSUME FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH BELIEVE IN THE TRINITY!”
          AND (Y) “ROMAN CATHOLICS & PROTESTANTS BELIEVE IN THE TRINITY!”

          You have said that : (X) the ‘FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH’ do NOT believe in TRINITY and (Y) due to that they are different from the Catholics and the Protestants in that they believe in the Trinity.
          It becomes absurd because (X) believes in Jesus as single God whereas (Y) believes in the same Jesus + Trinity which CANNOT Equate to ONE Christian Religion!

          X – T = Jesus = Son THE God = God Y+T = Jesus = Son of God = Trinity
          >>>>>>>>>>>>> NOT equal to ONE Christianity!

          And you continued : “BUT THE FIRST FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH DIDN’T TEACH THE TRINITY”.
          Correct, that IS what the Quran says = Muhammad is NOT false Prophet!

          “BUT THEY DID TEACH ABOUT FALSE PROPHETS LIKE MUHAMMAD!”. It means they taught you falsehood!

          “JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH & THE LIFE!”…you forgot to add : “for those Israelites…living at that time who finally slayed him and hung him on a mango tree!(that is if he ever lived)

          “JESUS IS NOT GOD, HE IS FROM GOD!” …meaning there are two Gods?…explain that from the Nazarean view……and so is every person from God! What miracle was in his conception as he stayed in mama Mary’s womb for 9 good months, just like you and I?

          “JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE LIFE FORCE – THE CREATOR!”…where is that written in the Bible, pastor?? Refer to this John 5:19 (KJV) :
          19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can DO NOTHING OF HIMSELF!!

          and Acts 2:22 (ESV):
          22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders AND SIGNS that GOD DID through him in your midst..”
          NOTE : “….AND SIGNS that GOD DID through him..”.

          “JESUS BRINGS LIFE, EVEN TO THE DEAD!”.
          John 13:16 (KJV) “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than HE that sent him.”

          You continued : “I THANK JESUS FOR MUHAMMAD!”. That IS correct!

          And finally : “WITHOUT MUHAMMAD I WOULD NOT KNOW THE ESSENCE OF EVIL!”.
          Again correct, Pastor! Without the Quran’s prohibition of SINS YOU would have NEVER
          known the EVILS. That is why the Quran says in 5:36 (P) :

          “And serve Allah. Ascribe no thing as partner unto Him. (Show) kindness unto parents, and unto near kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and unto the neighbour who is of kin (unto you) and the neighbour who is not of kin, and the fellow-traveller and the wayfarer and (the slaves) whom your right hands possess. Lo! Allah loveth not such as are proud and boastful”.

          Do you “SEE” your wrong perception of Islam, Lucky bin Pastor?

          • Admin/Raj, you purposely didn’t include the correct information that this video is saying : “child marriage is NOT limited to any religion or Nation” and that “27 countries in the developing world practice it.”

            Why did you delete that part and showed ONLY an old Taliban sitting near a small girl? What about the Hindu child marriage that the same video shows! I am NOT aware of any child marriages having occurred in my long life amongst the Muslims within East Africa..!

          • YOU ARE TOO BUSY FUCKING GOATS!

            (5) Fifth example of Sunni morality –
            BESTIALITY CAN BE PERFORMED DURING HAJJ

            Sunni Imam Abu Bakar al-Kashani (d. 587 H) records in his authority work ‘Badaye al-Sanae’ Volume 2 page 216:
            ولو وطئ بهيمة لا يفسد حجه
            “If he had sexual intercourse with an animal that will not make his hajj void”

            (6) Sixth example of Sunni morality –
            PEDOPHILIA, BESTIALITY & NECROPHILIA CAN BE PERFORMED WHILST ONE IS FASTING

            In Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim, page 603:
            “It was narrated by Ahmed that a man came to him that feared that he would ejaculate while he was fasting. Ahmed said: “What I see is that he can release semen without ruining the fast, he can masturbate using his hands or the hands of his wife, If he has an “Ammah” whether be it a girl or a little child, she can masturbate for him using her hands, and if she was a non-believer, he can sleep with her without releasing (his semen), if he released it in her, it becomes impermissible”.
            Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim, page 603
            Not to be hard done by, the Hanafi’s follow suit. In Fatawa Qadhi Khan, Page 820, the learned Hanafi scholar Allamah Hassan bin Mansoor Qadhi Khan sets out those acts that do not invalidate one’s fast, and he includes:
            “Sex with animals, dead people and masturbation, does not invalidate one’s fast provided ejaculation does not occur”
            Fatawa Qadhi Khan, Page 820

            COMMENT:

            What can we say about such Fatwas of morality? Fasting in Islam, is viewed as a means via which a believer purifies himself, via self-discipline, he dedicates that time to the remembrance of Allah (swt) and keeps aloof from sinful thoughts and acts. That is the theory, but the Hanbali and Hanafi madhab allows a man (whilst fasting) to have sex with kaffir women, animals, and dead people, the only proviso being that no ejaculation takes place! Ibn Hanbal was however more considerate to his adherents allowing for a man to ejaculate whilst fasting, providing the deed is achieved via masturbation, and to this end he can do it himself, or seek the help of his wife or a small child! Is this is not evidence that Ibn Hanbal was endorsing paedophilia? Would any decent man (Muslim or Non Muslim) find it appropriate to use a child for sexual stimulation? If we put together these type of fatwas one shudders to think of the image of these great Salaf, entering the war whilst fasting, their buttocks exposed, having sex with melons at the ready. This image would have terrified the opposition!

            ANIMAL LOVING MUSLIMS: ISLAM & ZOOPHILIA

            Pakistan has banned content on more than a dozen websites because of “offensive” and “blasphemous” material, while they themselves rank No. 1 for certain sex-related search terms, including “child sex,” “rape sex,” “animal sex,” “camel sex,” “donkey sex,” “dog sex,” and “horse sex”.[1]

            IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD

            AFGHANISTAN

            In a society where homosexuals and adulterers are stoned to death for “sexual immorality” you would expect a similar outcome for someone caught having sex with an animal. Surprisingly this is not the case.
            An Afghan soldier was detained by police after being caught having sex with a donkey in southeastern Afghanistan, a police officer told AFP.
            The soldier was discovered with the donkey in an abandoned house in a small village of Gardez, the capital of Paktia province, last week, a local police officer said.
            “He was caught in the act by a small boy who immediately told police about what he had seen and police arrested him in action,” the Gardez-based officer told AFP, requesting anonymity.
            The soldier claimed he committed the act because he did not have enough money to get married.
            After being caught with the donkey in a village about 100km south of the capital Kabul, he was jailed for four days and then released without charge.
            According to tradition in south and southeastern Afghanistan, a suitor must pay around $US5,000 ($A6,800) to the parents of the girl he wishes to marry.

            The Age, March 16, 2004
            Could it be that the soldier was released without charge because there is nothing in the Qur’an that prohibits bestiality?

            PALESTINE

            In 1923, the Director of Health in the British Mandate government in Palestine sent out a questionnaire to his Principal Medical and Health Officers in the country, asking them to report on various sexual practices and attitudes among the Muslim Arab population.
            As a result, the British discovered that the Muslim Arabs engaged in bestiality.
            The Nablus officer finds sodomy and “similar vices” “not uncommon in some of the towns but less so in the villages where…bestiality is by no mean unknown” and “immorality…rather lightly regarded” in those villages that are closer to the larger towns. He comments, “in the villages there seems to be curiously little feeling against bestiality which I have heard admitted in a very airy way on more than one occasion. Sodomy is considered disgraceful but not I think more so than ordinary immorality” (III).

            PAKISTAN

            In Southern Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Balochistan, sex with animals is a common practice among rural youths and considered a rite of passage into adulthood.
            In southern Punjab, much of NWFP, Sindh and Balochistan sodomy and bestiality are common among rural youths. In fact, he caught two boys trying to rape a goat in the vicinity of the mazar of Hazrat Sultan Bahu. The punishment meted out to them was 10 blows with a chhittar (shoe) each on their butts. They protested however that in many rural areas having sex with an animal was considered a rite of passage on the way to becoming full members of the male society!

            DONKEY KILLED AFTER BEING RAPED

            In June 2011, a male who was caught having sex with another man’s donkey was fined Rs 50,000. This fine was not imposed for having sex with an animal, but for committing adultery. The raped donkey was labelled a ‘kari’ (an adultress) and eventually honor killed by its owner.

            Incredible though it may sound, a donkey was declared ‘Kari’ and shot dead here in a remote area on Monday. The Jirga imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the alleged ‘Karo’.
            The reports said that in Village Ghahi Khan Jatoi, a villager Ghazi Khan alias Malang shot dead his donkey on being ‘Kari’ with Sikandar Ali alias Deedo. He attempted to kill Sikander too but the alleged Karo managed to escape and surrendered himself to an influential person of the area.
            Sources said the influential person summoned both the parties and imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the Karo. They said Sikander and his family were forced to pay Rs 50,000 on the spot and the remaining amount in two installments.
            The sources added that the alleged Karo pleaded innocence at the Jirga, but the Jirga members paid no attention to it. Sikander’s family said he paid Rs 50,000 to save his life otherwise he would have been killed.

            OTHER COUNTRIES & BESTIALITY — RELATED SEARCHES

            Pakistani Muslims are not alone in their search for porn.
            Google, the world’s most popular Internet search engine, has found in a survey that mostly Muslim states seek access to sex-related websites and Pakistan tops the list. Google found that of the top 10 countries – searching for sex-related sites – six were Muslim, with Pakistan on the top. The other Muslim countries are Egypt at number 2, Iran at 4, Morocco at 5, Saudi Arabia at 7 and Turkey at 8. Non-Muslim states are Vietnam at 3, India at 6, Philippines at 9 and Poland at 10.

            MIDDLE EAST

            Bestiality is common among boys of tribal Arab cultures.
            Miner and DeVos (1960) comment that amongst Arab tribal cultures, “Bestiality with goats, sheep, or camels provides another outlet. These practices are not approved but they are recognized as common among boys.” Havelock-Ellis [note 52] states “The Arabs, according to Kocher, chiefly practice bestiality with goats, sheep and mares. The Annamites, according to Mondiere, commonly employ sows and (more especially the young women) dogs.”

            Serving History
            There is also a certain saying which remains popular among the Arabs:
            The Arabs have never taken quite so condemnatory an attitude towards the practice, and indeed a popular Arab saying had it that

            “The pilgrimage to Mecca is not complete without copulating with the camel.”[9]

            SUDAN

            In February 2006, a man caught having sex with a neighbor’s goat was not punished, but ordered by the council of elders to pay the neighbor a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) and marry the animal because he “used it as his wife”.
            A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his “wife”, after he was caught having sex with the animal.
            The goat’s owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders.
            They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi.
            “We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together,” Mr Alifi said.

            MOROCCO

            Morocco is an Islamic country, with 98.7% of the population Muslims.[10] The following is taken from a paper on sexuality in Morocco written by Nadia Kadiri, M.D., and Abderrazak Moussaïd, M.D., with Abdelkrim Tirraf, M.D., and Abdallah Jadid, M.D. Translated by Raymond J. Noonan, Ph.D., and Sandra Almeida.
            In the rural world, zoophilia is still very widespread and not blameworthy. With masturbation, it constitutes an obligatory passage in the adolescent male’s apprenticeship of sexuality.
            The operative phrase is ‘obligatory passage in the adolescent male’s apprenticeship of sexuality’. Obligatory. It means in rural Morocco, Muslim males must have sexual intercourse with animals as part of their sexual apprenticeship.
            Also according to the scholars Allen Edwardes and Robert Masters, Ph.D, FAACS, the Muslims of Morocco believe that sexual intercourse with donkeys “make the penis grow big and strong” and masturbation is often scorned by them in favor of bestiality.[12]

            SLAMIC SCRIPTURE

            The above paper also says “it is prohibited without question by the Shariâ”. But is this alleged prohibition within the Shari’ah extracted (as it must be) from the Qur’an and Hadith, or has this fiqh been derived using external non-Islamic sources?

            QURAN

            In contrast with what secular and non-Islamic religious sources say about bestiality, this is what the Qur’an has to say on the subject:
            That’s right – absolutely, positively nothing. Unlike the Qur’an’s clear-cut rulings on the morality of homosexuality, Polygamy, rape, and pedophilia, the permissibility of bestiality seems to have been left open to ‘interpretation.’
            If Islamic teachings were truly opposed to such a practice, then this omission is somewhat surprising when you consider that, historically, bestiality was indigenously accepted in the Middle-East.[13]

            HADITH

            There is no prohibition against bestiality to be found within the two Sahihs. The following hadith is taken from the Sunnah Abu-Dawud collection, not Bukari or Muslim.
            Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If anyone has sexual intercourse with an animal, kill him and kill it along with him. I (Ikrimah) said: I asked him (Ibn Abbas): What offence can be attributed to the animal/ He replied: I think he (the Prophet) disapproved of its flesh being eaten when such a thing had been done to it.
            Abu Dawud 38:4449
            Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? And it is. Just look at the very next hadith.
            Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: There is no prescribed punishment for one who has sexual intercourse with an animal.
            Abu Dawud 38:4450
            This is a very clear contradiction. How can one hadith say kill the person committing bestiality, and the very next one say there is no prescribed punishment for the same person? Both statements cannot be true.
            What’s worse; these two contradictory hadiths (transmitted through different isnad) have been attributed to the same person. Abu Dawud himself had said the former of the two hadith is “not strong” and the latter further “weakens” it.[14]
            From the above, we can gather that Robert Masters had correctly stated, “bestiality was not specifically prohibited by the Prophet,”[9] so there is little wonder that Islamists generally shy away from mentioning Abu Dawud 38:4449 in their pronouncements on bestiality.

            SAHIH (AUTHENTIC) HADITH

            As we have previously mentioned, there is no prohibition against bestiality to be found within the two Sahihs (Authentic). However there does exist a certain hadith and commentary by the renowned Islamic scholar al-Nawawi, which is of interest.
            The following narration does not exist in the English translations of Sahih Muslim, but a similar (but sanitized version) appears in: Sahih Muslim 3:684
            و حدثني ‏ ‏زهير بن حرب ‏ ‏وأبو غسان المسمعي ‏ ‏ح ‏ ‏و حدثناه ‏ ‏محمد بن المثنى ‏ ‏وابن بشار ‏ ‏قالوا حدثنا ‏ ‏معاذ بن هشام ‏ ‏قال حدثني ‏ ‏أبي ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏قتادة ‏ ‏ومطر ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏الحسن ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي رافع ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي هريرة ‏ ‏أن نبي الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏إذا جلس بين ‏ ‏شعبها ‏ ‏الأربع ثم جهدها فقد وجب عليه الغسل ‏

            Narrated by Zuhair Ibn Harb, narrated by Ghasan Al-Masma’i, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Al-Mathny, narrated by Ibn Bashar, who said that it was narrated by Muath Ibn Hisham, narrated by Abu Qatada, narrated by Mattar, narrated by Al-Hassan, narrated by Abu Rab’i, narrated by Abu Huraira who said:
            “The prophet — peace be upon him — said, ‘If one sits between a woman’s four parts (shu’biha Al-arba’) and then fatigues her, then it necessitates that he wash.’
            In the hadith of Mattar it is added ‘even if he does not ejaculate (yunzil).’ Zuhair narrated among them using the phrase ‘Ashba’iha Al-arba’. It was also narrated by Muhammad Ibn Umar Ibn Ibad Ibn Jablah, narrated Muhammad Ibn Abi Uday, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Al-Mathny, narrated by Wahb Ibn Jarir who both related from Shu’bah who narrated from Qatada who gave this same chain of transmission, except that in the hadith of Shu’bah it has the phrase ‘then he labored’ but did not have the phrase ‘even if he does not ejaculate.’

            IMAM AL-NAWAWI (1234 — 1278 AD)

            Below is a short bio of al-Nawawi, whose commentary of Sahih Muslim is second only to Ibn Hajar’s commentary of Sahih Bukhari.[15]
            Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi was born in the village of Nawa in Southern Syria, Nawawi spent most of his life in Damascus where he lived in a simple manner, devoted to Allah, engaging single-mindedly in worship, study, writing and teaching various Islamic sciences. The life of this world seems scarcely to have impinged upon him. He was a versatile and extremely dedicated scholar whose breadth of learning was matched by its depth.
            Imam Nawawi died at the young age of 44 years, leaving behind him numerous works of great importance, the most famous of these being:
            • al-Arba’un Nabawi (An-Nawawis Forty Hadith)
            • Riyadhus saleheen
            • al-Maqasid (Al-Nawawi’s Manual of Islam).
            • Kitab al-Adhkar,
            • Minhaj al-Talibin (a main reference for Shafi’i fiqh)
            • Shar’ Sahih Muslim (he was the first to arrange the sahih of Muslim in the now familiar categories)
            Although best known for his works in hadith, Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277) was also the Imam of the later Shafi’i school of Jurisprudence, and widely acknowledged as the intellectual heir to Imam Shafi’i. He was a renowned scholar and jurist who dedicated his life to the pursuit of Islamic learning.

          • MECCA & THE HAJJ: AN ARABIAN FOLSOM STREET FESTIVAL:

            WHY NON MOHAMMEDANS AREN’T ALLOWED INTO MECCA:

            (1) First example of Sunni morality
            SALAFI “ULAMA RULED THAT MASTURBATION (WANKING) IS HALAL
            Shamsuddin Ibn Qayyim al Jawziya who is one of the only scholars that the Wahabis do not reject and who was a student of Ibn Taymiyya. Let us quote what he writes in his Bada’i al-Fuwa’id, page 129:
            “Ibn ‘Aqeel, and many of our scholars, and our Shaykh [Ibn Taymiyya] have ruled that masturbation is makruh (disliked), and never explicitly said he that it was haram”.
            Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim, page 129
            He then presents his own discussion on the conditions that make masturbation halaal:
            “If a man is torn between continued desire or releasing it, and if this man does not have a wife or he has a slave-girl but he does not marry, then if a man is overwhelmed by desire, and he fears that he will suffer because of this (someone like a prisoner, or a traveller, or a pauper), then it is permissible for him to masturbate, and Ahmad (ibn Hanbal) is explicit on this. Furthermore, it is narrated that the Companions of the Prophet (s) used to masturbate while they were on military expeditions or travelling”.

            COMMENT:

            The polytheists at the dawn of Islam must have been terrified by that scene:
            (AN ARMY OF WANKERS)
            an army of pious companions, their pants nice and short, their beards stretching down to their wastes, their swords held high with one hand while they heartily masturbate with the other. If this was the type of scene going on, we might be able to understand why so many companions refused to go on jihad. Would Dr. Salamah march off to battle with only an army of masturbators to protect him? Or was this tactic of masturbatory jihad supposed to be some sort of an offensive stratagem, to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy? Indeed, these companions were masters at the art of war!
            We appeal for justice: who is promoting debauchery, the Sunnis or the Shi’a? There are a lot of Ahkam surrounding travelling mentioned by the Prophet (s) and the Imams (as): the obligation to pray two rakaat for zuhr instead of four, or the obligation to break one’s fast. This Sunni ‘alim, who is one of the singularly most distinguished Sunni’ ulama and is adored by the Wahabis, has offered another hukm for travelling the permissibility of masturbating. And yet when a Shi’a says that a man is allowed to contract temporary marriage in order to satisfy his desires, Dr. Salamah passes a hukm of takfir. One is allowed to masturbate but not contract a temporary marriage? Is this not the peak of insanity?

            (2) Second example of Sunni morality:
            SUNNI ‘ULAMA LEGITIMISED THE USE OF DILDOS (FEMALE SEX TOYS)

            After this ingenious fatwa, Ibn Qayyim then goes on to make permissible the use of a dildoe by women. It is only logical; when the husbands leave to go masturbate and spread Islam by the sword, they need something to do with themselves. On the same page as quoted above, Ibn Qayyim writes:
            “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”.

            COMMENT:

            Now, according to Dr. Salamah’s logic, the Saudi government should therefore purchase a large number of such dildoes, and distribute them to old widows or otherwise unattractive women who cannot marry. Since anything that is permissible, according to Dr. Salamah, requires stand sanction and support, than clearly a dildoe distribution office needs to be immediately established in the great Islamic state of Saudi Arabia.
            Maybe this is another reason why ‘Umar the Khalifa never went on jihad: somebody had to stay behind and organize the cucumber distribution.

            (3) Third example of Sunni morality –
            SUNNI ‘ULAMA HAVE RULED ON PERMISSIBILITY OF HAVING SEX WITH WATERMELONS

            That was not a typographical error. Ibn Qayyim continues this discussion, which exemplifies the morals espoused by Sunni Islam:
            “If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey]. In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”.

            COMMENT:

            All the Muslims should certainly be grateful that Ibn Qayyim has offered this advice on the easiest way to masturbate, and clearly Ibn Qayyim has done a lot of personal research on this issue. This is the ruling of the “saved sect”: Contracting temporary marriage with a woman is haram, but contracting temporary marriage with a watermelon is halaal. In his defence, perhaps Ibn Qayyim only meant that it is allowed to marry a watermelon with the intent of divorcing it, for doing Mut’ah with a watermelon would clearly be an act of fornication.
            Let us remember the words of Dr. Salamah quoted at the beginning of this book:
            Mut’ah, on the other hand, is an open license for sexual pleasure with as many women as one can financially afford. The women who engage in Mut’ah are hired women; thus, it can be performed with all women irrespective of their age, character, conduct or religion. It requires no witnesses, nor is there any obligation on the man’s part to provide food and shelter to the woman.
            Well, it seems that in the Nasibi logic having sex with as many women as one can afford is utterly immoral, but having sex with as many watermelons as one can afford is not. Based on this, let us ask him some questions about the Ahkam related to having sex with watermelons: Are there any conditions as to the age of the watermelon? For example, is it allowed to perform a marriage with the intent to divorce with a newly grown watermelon, or must one wait until the watermelon is nine years old?
            Must it be a pious watermelon, or is it permissible to contract a marriage with the intent to divorce with a watermelon that is known to “get around”?
            May a pious brother share his watermelon with another pious brother, or would the second man’s marriage with the intent to divorce constitute an act of fornication unless the watermelon observes proper ‘iddah?
            Are witnesses required in the marriage with the intent to divorce of a watermelon? May other watermelons serve as witnesses in that marriage, since according to Sunni fiqh all marriages require witnesses? Applying the Sunni principle of Qiyas (analogy), we can strongly argue that if it is allowed to marry (with intention of divorce) a watermelon, than certainly it is allowed for a watermelon to bear witness to another watermelon’s blessed and chaste marriage.
            What about oranges?
            Really, we have to ask all reasonable Muslims: would you rather follow ‘ulama that rule on the permissibility of having sex with fruits and vegetables, or follow the pious path of the Holy Imams (as), of whom Allah (swt) has said:
            We intend, O Family of the Prophet, to remove from you all impurity, and to give you a through purification.
            Al-Qur’an, Surah Al-Ahzab, Ayah 33
            Does somebody who spends his time thinking about whether or not it is permissible to have sex with watermelons really sound like somebody who has been removed of all impurity? Why is Ibn Qayyim even thinking about such things? What kind of personal life does such a person have that would lead him to debate such issues in his mind? What happened in Ibn Qayyim’s life that one day he woke up and said: “I really need to find out if its halaal to have sex with watermelons.” Is the type of clergymen who openly rules for the permissibility of having sex with watermelons (with conditions, of course, such as that one is on a journey) be the kind of person you would want to meet in a dark alley, much less do taqlid of?

            (4)Fourth example of Sunni morality –
            A SALAFI WOMAN CAN SUCKLE A SALAFI MAN WITH A BEARD

            We read in Sahih Muslim Hadith Number 3426:
            Ibn Abu Mulaika reported that al-Qasim b. Muhammad b. Abu Bakr had narrated to him that ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Sahla bint Suhail b. ‘Amr came to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and said: Messenger of Allah, Salim (the freed slave of Abu Hudhaifa) is living with us in our house, and he has attained (puberty) as men attain it and has acquired knowledge (of the sex problems) as men acquire, whereupon he said: Suckle him so that he may become unlawful (in regard to marriage) for you He (Ibn Abu Mulaika) said: I refrained from (narrating this hadith) for a year or so on account of fear. I then met al-Qasim and said to him: You narrated to me a hadith which I did not narrate (to anyone) afterwards. He said: What is that? I informed him, whereupon he said: Narrate it on my authority that ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) had narrated that to me.

            COMMENT:

            This reference is especially for Dr Salamah who has accused the Shi’a of being filthy proponents of Mut’ah, what right do you have to attack us when have the above Fatwa of Ayesha allowing your women to suckle men with beards so as to make them mahram? How many pubescent Salafi men has your mother suckled so that they can enter your house? When your madhab allows your mothers / daughters to breast feed men with beards what gives you the right to attack the practice of Mut’ah? If today any Nasibi tries to suggest that this practice no longer exists in their school and it was only Ayesha who had issued the fatwa then we shall present the thoughts of their Imam Ibn Tamiyah as quoted by one of the revered scholars of Salafies Ibn Uthaimeen:
            واختار شيخ الإسلام ابن تيميه رحمه الله التفصيل وقال إذا دعت الحاجة إلى إرضاع الكبير وأرضع ثبت التحريم
            “Sheikh ul-Islam ibn Taymia (may Allah’s mercy be upon him) chosed to explain in details and said that if the breast suckling by an adult was necessary and he suckled, then the prohibition (of marriage) is established.”
            Fatawa Nur Ala Aldarb, Volume 10 page 204
            Imam Ibn Hazm records:
            ورضاع الكبير محرم ولو انه شيخ يحرم كما يحرم رضاع الصغير
            “The breast suckling by an adult prohibits (marriage) even if he is an old man just like it prohibits (marriage) in the case of suckling by a child”
            Al-Muhala, Volume 10 page 17
            Now compare this morality to the comments of a contemporary Salafi scholar from “Islamic Fatawa Regarding Women” compiled by Muhammed al-Musnad and translated by Jamal Zarabozo. In Chapter 19, Questions of a Miscellaneous Nature under the sub heading Ruling Concerning Women Driving Automobiles’, Imam of the Salafi Nasibi Shaykh bin Baz stated:
            There have been numerous questions concerning the ruling of women driving automobiles. The response is the following:
            There is no doubt that such is not allowed. Women driving leads to many evils and negative consequences. Included among these is her mixing with men without her being on her guard. It also leads to the evil sins due to which such an action is forbidden. The Pure Law forbids those acts that lead to forbidden acts and considers those means to be forbidden also. Allah has ordered the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the women of the believers to remain in their houses, to wear hijab and not to display their adornments to non-mahram males as that leads to promiscuity that overruns a society.
            Now on the one side these moralistic Salafi have this kind of fatawa prohibiting their women from (Allah forbid) driving a car as this may cause promiscuity, and on the other hand they deem it permissible for their women to suckle men with beards! Women driving ‘leads to many evils and negative consequences’, but if the same women were to remain at home suckling men with beards, that’s fine!

            (5) Fifth example of Sunni morality –
            BESTIALITY CAN BE PERFORMED DURING HAJJ

            Sunni Imam Abu Bakar al-Kashani (d. 587 H) records in his authority work ‘Badaye al-Sanae’ Volume 2 page 216:
            ولو وطئ بهيمة لا يفسد حجه
            “If he had sexual intercourse with an animal that will not make his hajj void”

            (6) Sixth example of Sunni morality –
            PEDOPHILIA, BESTIALITY & NECROPHILIA CAN BE PERFORMED WHILST ONE IS FASTING

            In Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim, page 603:
            “It was narrated by Ahmed that a man came to him that feared that he would ejaculate while he was fasting. Ahmed said: “What I see is that he can release semen without ruining the fast, he can masturbate using his hands or the hands of his wife, If he has an “Ammah” whether be it a girl or a little child, she can masturbate for him using her hands, and if she was a non-believer, he can sleep with her without releasing (his semen), if he released it in her, it becomes impermissible”.
            Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim, page 603
            Not to be hard done by, the Hanafi’s follow suit. In Fatawa Qadhi Khan, Page 820, the learned Hanafi scholar Allamah Hassan bin Mansoor Qadhi Khan sets out those acts that do not invalidate one’s fast, and he includes:
            “Sex with animals, dead people and masturbation, does not invalidate one’s fast provided ejaculation does not occur”
            Fatawa Qadhi Khan, Page 820

            COMMENT:

            What can we say about such Fatwas of morality? Fasting in Islam, is viewed as a means via which a believer purifies himself, via self-discipline, he dedicates that time to the remembrance of Allah (swt) and keeps aloof from sinful thoughts and acts. That is the theory, but the Hanbali and Hanafi madhab allows a man (whilst fasting) to have sex with kaffir women, animals, and dead people, the only proviso being that no ejaculation takes place! Ibn Hanbal was however more considerate to his adherents allowing for a man to ejaculate whilst fasting, providing the deed is achieved via masturbation, and to this end he can do it himself, or seek the help of his wife or a small child! Is this is not evidence that Ibn Hanbal was endorsing paedophilia? Would any decent man (Muslim or Non Muslim) find it appropriate to use a child for sexual stimulation? If we put together these type of fatwas one shudders to think of the image of these great Salaf, entering the war whilst fasting, their buttocks exposed, having sex with melons at the ready. This image would have terrified the opposition!


  2. This man was presented as the” Greatest PROOF” ( Sabse Bada Gawah) by various news channels. Arrey Bahi Log BELIEVE ONLY WHAT THE COURTS WILL SAY AND NOBODY ELSE.

    • Lightman, thanks for the link…which I went through casually and NOTED the following :

      This Bholaram IS a Liar and is “in an arranged show”..speaking from a memorised script. When he veered away from the point to be made, the actual script writer corrected him…when he looked behind to get the guidance. Ask yourself : what is he doing there when he IS supposed to defend the sexual pervert in the courts? Who is he to claim that the rapist “BABA” is innocent when the Ashram dude is lingering in the jail for the same crime? Isn’t that contempt of court as the courts have to give a ruling? Isn’t that fake incitement put in the minds of those Baba worshippers.

      Points to NOTE :

      1. He runs a Yoga and we know what these guys do to the YONIS of innocent girls, with their Linghams!
      2. He mentioned nothing on the innocence of the Sexual pervert Baba.
      3. He is prepared to face the gaol for defamation of India TV and other two personalities namely Mahendra Chawla-his former secretary, who exposed the bastard and a fake “JBJ Prakash”.
      4. This Bholaram is a “Lachari”, a money hungry dude, a sexual pervert also…as birds of the same feathers flock together!
      5. Astrology is fake…he is a believer in that too!
      6. He has created the “car” story stashed with cash and with media gundas. Why should
      7. The suicide story does NOT match in the picture.
      8. Visiting, knowing or living with a serial rapist does NOT mean that one can know his true colors…when he becomes a werewolf!!
      9. He vilifies Mahendra Chawla just as muslim clerics do to the Apostates.
      10. These “Babas” are dangerous dudes…recall a few days ago… the intimidation of the second witness through acid throwing……even life of Chawla is in danger, now he cannot walk freely……these babas are NOT Bapus as the only genuine Bapu was Mahatma Gandhi!!

      The heading should be “Subse Bhada Juttha Gawai”

      • Actually Bholaram was arrested by the Jammu Police when his plans to get dead bodies from someplace else and placing them inside Ashram premises( so that a new case could be created) was foiled by one of the people he had asked to get the bodies…No one is prompting him any script as the stage was filled with invited guests which included several well respected civilians. The so called “prompting ” is made by the host of the meeting ( I’m forgetting his name) in order to remind him to point out things fast and to remind him some of the things which were important .

      • …Hmmm When none of the case has been proven in courts I am amazed to see you making such claims against Bapu . Why cant you be impartial like us(Govardhan Peeth) until the final decision comes out? ( Actually you dont need to be or do anything , this case does not involves muslims in any way so its better they keep out of it , The FOUR Acharyas of the Shankar Peethams as the foremost authority on Sanatan Dharma have decided that they will take a strong official stand and decide what to make of this whole story but only after the courts verdict ) … and please also explain that from where did you get the Idea that Yoga is about sex? also I would like to know if its just this case of do you have a generalized hatred toward everything Vedic(Hindu) including its monastic order.

        • …Uhhmmmmm….refer to my past comments on Tantric yoga…but maybe this site will help you know why Yoga gurus are sooo sexual perverts : Why does yoga produce so many philanderers?
          http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/28/health/nutrition/yoga-fans-sexual-flames

          If this Bholananji, the Speaker in the video is a Yoga teacher and after the claim of 100 cures and ailments achieved by Yoga, then why is he suffering from the ulcers??

          “Gurus and sex scandals are nothing new; Bikam Choudhury-the accused rapist is not the first and probably will not be the last yoga guru embroiled in a sex scandal. Indeed, he joins a long list of others including Swami Muktananda, Swami Satchidananda, Amit Desai, and of course, John Friend, whose recent scandal made headlines last year and has left the future of Anusara yoga in question.” Elle.com

          Nithyananda estbalished an Ashram at Bidadi, near Bangalore on Jan 1, 2003 called Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam, with the stated mission of reviving Vedic tradition and sharing his enlightenment experience. The ashram offers programs on meditation, yoga and healing which are often conducted by Nithyananda.
          In December 2010, India Today reported that police planned to conduct an investigation into the wealth of Nithyananda and the ashram.He was alleged to have accumulated ₹1400 million (~ US$ 23 million) in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Nithyananda’s younger brother manages his finances and those of the ashrams outside India as well as the Nithyananda Imports and Exports business. In June 2012, India Today reported that Nithyananda “heads 20 foreign trusts and nine Indian trusts that call themselves charitable institutions and pay no taxes”. It described his website, http://www.nithyananda.org, as “a full-fledged e-commerce site”

          Sun TV scandal[edit]
          A video that apparently showed Nithyananda engaging in sexual acts with women, allegedly Tamil film actress Ranjitha, was broadcast on the Tamil television channel Sun News on 2 March 2010.

          Accusations by Arathi Rao
          Arathi Rao, a former follower of Nithyananda, gave a detailed account of her five-year experience with the guru. She alleged that Nithyananda repeatedly raped her and threatened her with dire consequences if she revealed it to anybody.

          Mahamandelshwar and Madhurai Adheenam controversies
          In June 2012, a Hindu organization in Tamil Nadu, filed a petition in Madurai court against Nithyanada alleging misuse of Madhurai Adheenam mutt for practicing immoral activities and for serving holy water laced with drugs.

          Again ashrams…similar tactics came to the aid of the sexual perverts. These Babas are
          fake…….they have goondas to do their dirty work of silencing the victims.

          Regarding my attitude you may judge as you please!

        • LM, I have NO hatred towards anybody of ANY religion…as I believe in Humanity first. That is why I say ….always…”Be Good, Do Good”.

          But whatsoever sites I visit…I give a good share of truth and justice to the topic. Here, since this site is Anti-Islam, I would like to give pro-Islam views but only if it is true and am able to do so, though my own personal beliefs matter less here. I do NOT live under pseudo because I wouldn’t like to profane any religion for the sake of it. All religions are for social gatherings and community living of people but a few of the faithfuls are …… are not that “faithful” in every religion.

          I am less interested in others pocketing billions at the expense of the poor and some supporting them for their own ulterior motives but anything of interest cannot be ignored, correct?

          Negativity is a standard to be maintained …as there is always “Opinion” and “Fact to sift from…a touchstone of very high IQ.

          • As far as Bapu’s organization is concerned we did made an independent study from our own side and found that the news stories are extremely exaggerated , there are a few cases where they did receive tax related notices but its not that much of a big deal…Anyway you gave a Nice Reply Plum…But I dont agree on one point . The idea the Negativity is the standard which must be maintained is preposterous to me. Instead I think Objectivity should be our status-quo in every situation . I dont know if you know this or not but there is a story about Omar Caliph and how he didn’t kill his enemy in battle because his sense of objectivity had been maligned by his negetivity ( personal descent and hate) for the said person . Few muslims become terrorists and everybody begins finding faults with their religion, this too happens when we maintain Negativity as the default standard with which we meet every thing ( especially every unfamiliar person , thing or Idea) in life. On the other being objective gives us more options to make a logical and more importantly a MORE INFORMED decision as to how to react to a certain situation .

          • YOU ARE A FOUL MOUTHED, TAQIYYA LIAR! YOU HOLD UP THE CULT OF DEATH & DESTRUCTION, MOHAMMEDANISM. YOU HOLD UP ITS MANUAL OF DEATH, THE QURAN! YOU HOLD UP ITS PERVERT OF MECCA, AS AN EXAMPLE FOR MANKIND. THE PERFECT EXAMPLE FOR MANKIND THE PERFECT MUSLIM And surely thou hast sublime morals (Surat Al-Qalam 68:4). Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:21). Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly. ALLAH’S ARITHMETIC: 54 INTO 9 GOES NICELY THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults. Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man? Do you think that is what she would choose? Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old? The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old. MUHAMMAD: HIS SEX LIFE, SEX ABUSE & CHILD MOLESTING Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly. Let us investigate how did the prophet live Islam; how did the prophet apply the eternal teachings of God in his daily life? In this search for the historical Muhammad, we will utilize the Islam’s holy books, its own writings. MUHAMMAD’S MOLESTATION OF BABY AISHA Muhammad fantasized about baby Aisha before soliciting her from her father. Sahih Bukhari 9.140 Narrated ‘Aisha: Allah’s apostle said to me, “you were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘if this is from Allah, then it must happen. AISHA’S FATHER DID NOT APPROVE AT FIRST Aisha’s father, Abu Bakr, wasn’t on board at first, but Muhammad explained how the rules of their religion made it possible. This is similar to the way that present-day cult leaders manipulate their followers into similar concessions. Sahih Bukhari 7.18 Narrated ‘Ursa: The prophet asked abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “but I am your brother.” the prophet said, “you are my brother in Allah’s religion and his book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.” MUHAMMAD WOULD THIGH WITH BABY AISHA HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89). Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child. According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her. Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs? Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9. Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar). The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’ After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age. That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers\'” (Fatwa No. 31409). Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir) AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES From the Hadith of Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible). Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231: Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar: I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ” Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232: Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them. Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them. From the Hadith of Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible). Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230: Narrated ‘Aisha: as above (229). Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231: Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar: I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen.

MARRIAGE AGE LAWS UNISLAMIC: PAK SCHOLARS By Aamir Latif, OnIslam Correspondent Wednesday, 12 March 2014 The CII announced that laws setting age for marriage are un-Islamic and that Muslim children can get married at any age once they attain puberty. KARACHI – A ruling by a prestigious religious council describing laws banning underage marriage in Pakistan as un-Islamic has divided the country’s scholars and activists over the Islamic ruling and changing economic conditions surrounding the widespread practice. “Terming the underage marriage completely invalid and illegal is not the right thing,” Maulana Wali Razi, a Karachi-based religious scholar, and a former state minister for religious affairs , told OnIslam.net. “There are examples of underage marriages even in the Islamic history , including that of noble Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon Him) with Umm-ul-Momineen ( Mother of Muslims), Syeda Ayesha Siddiqa (RA),” he added. Maulana Razi was commenting on the ruling of the country’s Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) issued on Tuesday which sparked contradicting reactions. The CII, a constitutional body responsible for giving legal advice to the government on Islamic issues, announced that laws setting age for marriage are un-Islamic and that Muslim children can get married at any age once they attain puberty. Maulana Mohammad Khan Sherani, a former senator, who is serving as the CII chairman for the second term, ruled that the laws are unfair as no age could be set for marriage, and Nikkah of even minors can be solemnized but only with the consent of their guardians. However, the wife and the husband could only be allowed to live together once they reach puberty. According to current laws, the minimum age for a girl to marry is 16, and for a boy is 18. However, the said laws are practically not followed, especially in rural Pakistan. Islam highly appreciates marriage and gives it due care stating detailed rules and ruling in every single and small matter. Islam doesn’t impose a specific age for eligibility for marriage and leaves it for the legal authorities to decide the proper age for marriage in order to maintain interests of both husbands and wives. This, of course, changes from one country or community to anther depending on many considerable factors. In Islam also it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry. Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission. CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES Though Maulana Razi agreed that there is no age limit set for marriage, he asserted that underage marriages can create a host of social and economic problems not only for the couple, but for their families as well. “Things have completely changed. Every era has its own demands and conditions,” Maulana Razi told OnIslam.net. “Today’s children are not that mature. In my opinion, they (underage couples) are not able to cope with the tough terrain of marriage”. “Nowadays, personal liking and disliking are very important. The children may bow to their parents at the time of wedding no matter they like each other or not, but after marriage, their life will be in deep trouble,” he maintained. Economic issue plays an equally vital role in regard to underage marriage, Razi opines. “It’s not the old era when necessities of life were limited, and people could survive with minimum means. It’s the era when economy prevails,” he thought. “If the husband is a minor and totally dependent on his parents, how would he cope with his and his wife’s economic needs,” Maulana Razi asked. “It (dependence) will create an animosity within the family” Moreover, he said, the underage couple will more be involved in handling the domestic affairs rather than their education. “Therefore, in my opinion, once a boy is economically and socially settled, then he should get married. No doubt as soon as possible,” he added. “But, let me make it clear again, there is no age limit for marriage in Shari’ah,” he maintained. Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, the chairman of moon-sighting committee, agrees. “The guardians have the authority to marry their children on the pretext that being parents they would take all decisions for the betterment of their children,” Mufti Muneeb told OnIslam.net. “But, if it is proved that parents have misused this right for vested interest, then the state has the authority to take action,” he clarified. Mussarrat Jabeen, a women rights activist and a columnist, however opposes the CII ruling. “Underage marriage means, you are snatching their childhood,” she told OnISlam.net. “It is a proven fact that even if a child skips one year through double promotion in school, he or she misses the entire environment that he or she should have experienced during that one year,” she opined. The women rights activist, however, agreed with Maulana Razi that the mental immaturity can cause various social issues for the underage couple. “Marriage requires mental maturity and sanity. And if this is not there, the marriage will turn out to be a total mess,” Jabeen contended. CHILD MARRIAGE DEBATES REIGNITE IN YEMEN OnIslam & News Agencies Sunday, 15 September 2013 00:00 Yemeni former child bride Nujud Mohammed Ali protests in support of a child marriage ban in Sanaa in 2010. SANAA – As the story of the Yemeni child who has reportedly died on her wedding night continues to cast shadows on the Yemeni government, a prominent Yemeni official has called to activate the legal age for marriage bill and raise it to 18 years. “We are asking to fix the legal age for marriage at 18, as Yemen is a signatory to the international conventions on children’s rights,” Yemen’s Human Rights Minister Huriya Mashhoor, told Agence France Presse (AFP) on Saturday, September 14. The minister noted that she aims to activate legal age for marriage bill which was issued in 2009 and subsequently froze by Al-Islah party. “I wrote to the president of the chamber of deputies to re-file on the parliamentary agenda the bill limiting the age of marriage,” Mashhoor said. Moreover, she urged to amend the minimum age for marriage to be 18 years, instead of 17. Mashhoor’s proposal followed last week reports about the death of an eight-year-old girl in Yemen of internal injuries on the first night of her marriage to a man in his 40s. The story of Rawan’s death, denied by local officials, has sparked anger over the old Yemeni practice. Child marriages are widespread in Yemen. Estimates show that 52 percent of Yemeni girls are married off before the age of 18 and 14 percent before the age of 15. There are some cases in which young girls as little as 8 were being allowed to enter a marital union. Islam highly appreciates marriage and gives it due care stating detailed rules and ruling in every single and small matter. Islam doesn’t impose a specific age for eligibility for marriage and leaves it for the legal authorities to decide the proper age for marriage in order to maintain interests of both husbands and wives. This, of course, changes from one country or community to anther depending on many considerable factors. In Islam also it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry. Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission. WORRYING TRADITION The minister’s proposed bill followed Yemeni officials’ denial of the incident, confirming that Rawan is still alive. “The young girl Rawan Abdo Hattan is still alive and normally lives with her family who, in turn, deny the whole thing,” Ali al-Qaissi, the governor of Hajja province, told Yemeni official news agency SABA on Saturday. “The young girl is currently in a social protection centre after undergoing physical and psychological tests in a public hospital in the area.” Prior to Al-Qaissi’s statement, the Human Rights Minister said that they still lack ‘evidence’ to the girl’s death, raising concern about the attempts to ‘silence’ the case. “We do not have enough evidence at the moment about the incident,” Mashhoor said. “But I am worried that there could be an attempt to silence the matter, especially as it took place in an isolated rural area in Hajja province where there have been similar cases before. “If the case was confirmed and covered up, then the crime would be more serious,” she added. Last Wednesday, Human Rights Watch warned that 14 percent of girls in Yemen are married before the age of 15, and 52 percent before 18, citing Yemeni and 2006 data from the United Nations. In certain rural areas, girls as young as eight are sometimes given in marriage to men much older than they. Earlier in 2012, a HRW report said the repercussions of child marriages reverberate throughout Yemeni society as it prevents women from completing their education, keeping Yemen in a state of prolonged ignorance. The problem of Yemeni child marriage caused worldwide outrage in 2010, with the case of Nujod Mohamed Ali who had been married at the age of 10 to a man 20 years her senior in 2008. Granted a divorce after he sexually abused and beat her, Ali became involved in campaigns against forced underage marriages, leading to calls to ban women from marrying before the age of 18. Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, the highest religious body in the Sunni Muslim world, has recently issued a manual on the rights of Muslim children. “Marriage in Islam is regulated by certain rules, namely, children must reach puberty and maturity so that they can get married,” the manual said. EARLY MARRIAGE SCARS PAKISTANI CHILDREN By Aamir Latif, OnIslam Correspondent Sunday, 27 May 2007 14:10 “I had no idea what did marriage mean? Sassi told IOL. KARACHI — Eleven-year old Sassi is currently hiding at a shelter home located in a slum area of Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi. She is not hiding from police, but from her own drug-addict father, who had sold her in the name of marriage to a 70-year old man when she was 9 in 2005. “I had no idea what did marriage mean? I remember my mother was crying, and fighting with my father, who was forcing me to go with them (her husband and family),” Sassi told IslamOnline.net in the corridor of her shelter house. “They beat up my mother who was trying to save me.” Hailing from a small town Thatta, located some 100 kilometers off southeast Karachi, Sassi had been recovered by the local police on the request of her mother who filed a petition in a court some 20 days after her daughter’s forced marriage. “They forcibly took me to their home in a nearby village,” she recalled. “As soon as I reached their home, one of their women gave me something to eat, which got me unconscious. When I woke up the next morning, my clothes were littered with blood.” Sassi said she was “molested” by her husband several times. The police arrested her father and her husband, who were later released on bail following non-pursuance of case by her mother. The father had received Rs 70,000 (1200 US dollars) for marrying her to the aging man. Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf said on Tuesday, December 5, his government was planning legislation to outlaw forced marriages, including a practice of marrying off women to settle disputes. The annual number of child marriages taking place in Pakistan remains unknown. It is believed most such forced marriages, many occurring in relatively remote rural areas, go unreported. Parents are often tempted to sell off young girls in exchange for the high price offered by grooms, often many times the age of their brides. Bride prices commonly range from $1,000 to $5,000, with younger girls drawing a larger amount. In Islam it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry. Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission. NIGHTMARE Sassi said the days she spent with her husband were her worst nightmare. “I didn’t know what to do. I just wanted to either die or flee from there,” she said with her eyes welled up with tears. “But he used to keep a close eye on me. It seemed as if he knew about my wish.” Sassi was sent by her mother to a shelter home, run by an NGO providing shelter to homeless women, with the assistance of Thatta-based women organization. “My mother sent me here because they (her husband and his family) had threatened to abduct me,” she said. “They said that I am the honor of their family, and they can’t let their honor to go away.” Sassi is studying, working and residing in the shelter house. “I am very happy here. I don’t want to go back.” Haider Rizvi, Chairman of the Department of Psychology, University of Karachi, warns of the extreme adverse physical and emotional impacts of such marriages. “If a young girl gets married in her quite early age carries many health hazards like poor reproductive health due to increased pregnancies, therefore chances of death become double,” he told IOL. “The poor young poor girls cannot get proper education, cannot even get the opportunity to learn the domestic work/skills……..especially when the expectations of in-laws are quite high then domestic problems are started……consequently end up with early divorce.” The expert also notes that with a big age difference, the chances of becoming a widow at a younger age is more likely. “Psychological theories reveal that most of us develop a primary relationship with someone who is within three years of our own age. In our urban society, now the acceptance has been developed for young couples; on contrary in rural or slum areas the situation remains the same where the female is considered as a child producing machine or a sex-tool.” Rizvi maintains that it is high time for parents to think and revise their cultural and family norms. “The early marriages for the girls should be discouraged at every level of the society.” COMMON Lawyer Naeem said early marriages are common in rural areas of Pakistan. (IOL Photo) Sassi ‘s lawyer, Saleha Naeem, says early marriages are common in rural areas of the South Asian Muslim country, where women make up nearly 52 percent of the population. “This is not the only case. I am also seeing the cases of three other girls, and one of them was married when she was only 6 years old,” Saleha told IOL. According to the law, she says, a girl cannot marry until she is 16, but like all other laws, the implementation of this law is weak. Saleha thinks the specter of illiteracy is behind the early marriage phenomenon. “A majority of people in the rural areas are unaware of the importance of an educated mother. Instead of providing education to their daughters, they want to get rid of them as soon as possible by marrying them to even men of their fathers’ age,” she said. “There needs to be greater awareness on a wider level of the rights of women and also punishment for those who violate laws by selling their children. The impunity available to them has aggravated the situation,” insisted the lawyer. The Sindh and southern Punjab region is one of the most impoverished in the country, and research carried out into the issue indicates this is a key factor in the increase in such unlawful unions. “This phenomenon is common in families belonging to low income bracket,” Justice (rtd) Majida Rizvi told IOL. “They generally consider girls as burden, and illiteracy is a major reason for that. As soon as the girls turn 11-12, they think it is high time to get rid of this burden,” she said. “It’s a perverted society in many ways. We have reports that such marriages are becoming increasingly common, and they will stop only if the law is applied.” COMPLICATED Justice Majida, who was Pakistan’s first woman high court judge, notes that the legality of early marriages in Pakistan is a complicated issue. “Under Pakistani law, the Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 states no female under 16 or male less than 18 may marry. But under Hudood Ordinance, as soon as a girl reaches her puberty, she can marry,” aid the chairwoman of Women Rights Commission. “This complication needs to be sorted out because Pakistan is a warm country, and generally girls reach their puberty at 11 or 12 years here,” Justice Majida said. In 1990, Pakistan ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Child, which prohibits child marriages. In addition under the Muslim Family Law Ordinance, a girl must have attained the age of 16 and a boy must have turned 18, and both need to consent before the marriage can take place. Hassamuddin Mansoori, a renowned religious scholar, says there is no age restriction for marriage in Islam. “The 16-year age restriction is in the Pakistan panel code. It has nothing to do with Islamic law,” he said. “According to Islamic law, if a girl or boy has reached puberty, they can marry.” Mansoori said that marriage in Islam is regulated by certain rules, mainly that children must reach puberty and maturity to get married. However, he said, the decision of marriage should be taken in line with the cultural, economic and social conditions of local society. “There is no provision of forced marriages in Islam. This is totally unacceptable,” Mansoori insisted. He recalled that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) asked for his daughter Fatima’s consent before marrying her to imam Ali. “A Woman has the right to accept or reject marriage proposals,” Mansoori averred. “Her consent is a prerequisite to the validity of the marital contract, according to the Prophet’s teaching. It follows that if an “arranged marriage” means the marrying of a female without her consent, then such a marriage may be annulled if the female so wishes,” he added. “If a person classified as a child is married, when he or she reaches the age of puberty and maturity, then Islam gives him or her the right to choose whether to go on with that marriage or not”, he maintained. “It’s not mandatory that the day you reach puberty, you have to get married. No, not at all. This is only permission that now you can marry. Otherwise, this decision should be taken in line with the circumstances being faced by every individual.” CUSTOMS In 2002, the then Chief Justice Irshad Hassan declared the two notorious customs of Vani and Swara as un-Islamic and expressed concern over the rising number of these cases. Vani and Swara customs are found in some parts of Punjab and NWFP respectively under which minor girls of a family are married to men, no matter how old they are, of the rival family to settle down enmities and disputes. Recently, two girls were rescued by the intervention of the Chief Minister of Punjab. A 17-year-old girl was about to be married to a 77-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl was about to be married to a 55-year-old man to settle a criminal dispute in Mianwali, a southern district of Punjab. These marriages were arranged by four murder convicts who saved themselves from the death penalty after reaching an agreement with the aggrieved family to pay a fine and hand over eight young girls as “compensation” to the aggrieved family. “Although there are national laws such as the Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 and the Pakistan Penal Code that prohibit the sale and underage marriage of girls, these customary practices will be difficult to prevent unless laws are rigorously implemented and those breaching the contract are dealt with strictly under the law,” said Justice Majida. CHILD BRIDE DEATH TRIGGERS YEMEN UPROAR OnIslam & Newspapers Tuesday, 10 September 2013 00:00 Child marriages are widespread in Yemen. CAIRO – Reports about the death of an eight-year-old girl in Yemen of internal injuries on the first night of her marriage to a man more than five times her age has sparked anger over the widespread practice, denied vehemently by Yemeni officials. “Her family and her groom could have waited for some time before having this marriage,” a blogger using the moniker “Sad” was quoted by Gulf News. “It was not fair at all and the marriage should not have happened even if some tribes believe that it is a good custom.” The story was first caught by the Kuwait daily Al-Watan which said that an eight-year old Yemeni school girl, Rawan, has reportedly died from internal injuries on her wedding night in the northern province of Hajja. Sparking outrage worldwide, the case prompted calls for immediate and harsh sanctions against whoever was involved in allowing a pre-pubescent eight-years old Yemeni school girl to marry a man in his 40s. As the news spread, people took their protests to Twitter, Facebook and their personal blogs, determined to protest child marriage and what they perceived as child abuse. Other bloggers offered their prayers for the “bride”, lashing out at the “groom” and the girl’s family. Angry Man, a blogger, posted that the man was “an animal who deserved to be punished severely for his crime.” “All those who supported such a crime should also be punished,” he said. Bu Omar said that he was disturbed by the death report. “Rawan’s family members are not humans. They do not deserve to have children,” he said. Rights activists have also condemned the report, urging Yemeni authorities to pursue the matter legally. Child marriages are widespread in Yemen. Estimates show that 52 percent of Yemeni girls are married off before the age of 18 and 14 percent before the age of 15. Marriage in Islam is of utmost importance as it is upon the lawful union of a man and a woman that society grows strong and that moral is preserved. In Islam it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry. Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission. DENIAL As outrage is growing in magnitude, Yemeni officials denied the accident, rejecting the media version of the story. “When I heard the rumors, I called the girl’s father. He came with his daughter and denied the marriage and death of his daughter,” said Mosleh Al Azzani, the director of Criminal Investigation in Harradh district where the marriage allegedly took place, Yemen Post reported. “I have the photos of the girl and will show it to anyone.” Aziz Saleh, a local investigative journalist also confirmed that he personally contacted the authorities and received assurances that media reports had been fabricated. “All of them maintained that neither the marriage nor death had taken place,” he said. Ahmed al-Qurishi, the head of SEYAJ Organization for Childhood Protection, an NGO which advocates children’s rights also denied the media version of the story. “I got in touch with the director of Criminal Investigation, Hajja’s prosecutor and the province’s security chief who all flatly denied the story,” he said. Al Qurishi said that his organization conducted its own investigation into the issue by sending some activists to the area. “The preliminary results show that the story was untrue,” he said. “Some people create these stories to get publicity and attention and aid from international organizations.” Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, the highest religious body in the Sunni Muslim world, has recently issued a manual on the rights of Muslim children. “Marriage in Islam is regulated by certain rules, namely, children must reach puberty and maturity so that they can get married,” the manual said. A recent HRW report said the repercussions of child marriages reverberate throughout Yemeni society as it prevents women from completing their education, keeping Yemen in a state of prolonged ignorance. MUHAMMAD, 50, MARRIES BABY AISHA AGE 6 Sahih Bukhari volume 5, book 58, number 234 Narrated Aisha: the prophet engaged (married) me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, um ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became alright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some ansari women who said, “best wishes and Allah’s blessing and a good luck.” then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. Sahih bukhari volume 8, book 73, number 151 Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the prophet would call them to join and play with me. (the playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-bari page 143, vol.13) Muhammad’s father in law, Umar bin Khattab, the second rightly guided khalifa, married a child, Umm Kulthum. Umm Khultum was about 9 years old when she was married. Umar was certainly not doing wrong according to Islam, Muhammad once said that even the devil would step aside when he met Umar in an alley. Islam is indeed the true religion for pedophiles, rapists, sadistics etc. Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3310: ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old. Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64 Narrated ‘Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death). Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65 Narrated ‘Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: I have been informed that ‘Aisha remained with the Prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death).” what you know of the Quran (by heart)’ Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88 Narrated ‘Ursa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death). Some Muslims claim that it was Abu Bakr who approached Muhammad asking him to marry his daughter. This is of course not true and here is the proof. Sahih Bukhari 7.18 Narrated ‘Ursa: The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “But I am your brother.” The Prophet said, “You are my brother in Allah’s religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.” Arabs were a primitive lot with little rules to abide. Yet they had some code of ethics that they honored scrupulously. For example, although they fought all the year round, they abstained from hostilities during certain holy months of the year. They also considered Mecca to be a holy city and did not make war against it. A adopted son’s wife was deemed to be a daughter in law and they would not marry her. Also it was customary that close friends made a pact of brotherhood and considered each other as true brothers. The Prophet disregarded all of these rules anytime they stood between him and his interests or whims. Abu Bakr and Muhammad had pledged to each other to be brothers. So according to their customs Ayesha was supposed to be like a niece to the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca. Yet that did not stop him asking Abu Bakr for her hand, even when she was only six years old. But this moral relativist “Holy Prophet” of Mecca would use the same excuse to reject a woman he did not like. Sahih Bukhari V.7, B62, N. 37 Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: It was said to the Prophet, “Won’t you marry the daughter of Hamza?” He said, “She is my foster niece (brother’s daughter). ” Hamza and Abu Bakr both were the foster brothers of Muhammad. But Ayesha must have been too pretty for the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca to abide by the codes of ethics and custom. In the following Hadith he confided to Aisha that he had dreamed of her before soliciting her from her father. Sahih Bukhari 9.140 Narrated ‘Aisha: Allah’s Apostle said to me, “You were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘Uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘If this is from Allah, then it must happen. Whether Muhammad had actually such a dream or he just said it to please Aisha is not the point. What matters here is that it indicates that Aisha was a baby being “carried” by an angel when the Prophet dreamed of her. There are numerous hadithes that explicitly reveal the age of Ayesha at the time of her marriage. Here are some of them. Sahih Bukhari 5.236. Narrated Hisham’s father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old. Sahih Bukhari 5.234 Narrated Aisha: The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. And in another Hadith we read. Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 41, Number 4915, also Number 4916 and Number 4917 Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) married me when I was seven or six. When we came to Medina, some women came. according to Bishr’s version: Umm Ruman came to me when I was swinging. They took me, made me prepared and decorated me. I was then brought to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him), and he took up cohabitation with me when I was nine. She halted me at the door, and I burst into laughter. In the above hadith we read that Aisha was swinging, This is a play of little girls not grown up people. The following Hadith is particularly interesting because it shows that Aisha was so small that was not aware what was going on when the Holy Prophet “surprised” her by going to her. Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 90 Narrated Aisha: When the Prophet married me, my mother came to me and made me enter the house (of the Prophet) and nothing surprised me but the coming of Allah’s Apostle to me in the forenoon. Must have been quite a surprise! But the following is also interesting because it demonstrates that she was just a kid playing with her dolls. Pay attention to what the interpreter wrote in the parenthesis. (She was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty) Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151 Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13) Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311 ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old. The holy Prophet died when he was 63. So he must have married Aisha when he as 51 and went to her when he was 54. Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 33 Narrated ‘Aisha: I never felt so jealous of any woman as I did of Khadija, though she had died three years before the Prophet married me, and that was because I heard him mentioning her too often, and because his Lord had ordered him to give her the glad tidings that she would have a palace in Paradise, made of Qasab and because he used to slaughter a sheep and distribute its meat among her friends. Khadija died in December of 619 AD. That is two years before Hijra. At that time the Prophet was 51-years-old. So in the same year that Khadija died the prophet married Aisha and took her to his home 3 years later, i.e. one year after Hijra. But until she “grew up” he married Umm Salama. In another part Aisha claims that as long as she remembers her parents were always Muslims. Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 245 Narrated ‘Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) I never remembered my parents believing in any religion other than the true religion (i.e. Islam), If Ayesha was older i.e. 16 or 18 as some Muslims claim, she would have remembered the religion of her parents prior to becoming Muslims. Now someone may still claim that all these hadithes are lies. People are free to say whatever they want. But truth is clear like the Sun for those who have eyes. No sane person would be aroused by a 6-year-old child. Decent people wince at the thought of this shameful act. Yet some Muslims deny them. The question is why so many followers of Muhammad would fabricate so many false hadithes about the age of Aisha, which incidentally confirm each other? MUHAMMAD RESERVED BABY AISHA FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE SHE WAS A VIRGIN & HE WANTED A VIRGIN. Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 7, book 62, number 17 Narrated jabir bin ‘abdullah: When I got married, Allah’s apostle said to me, “what type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” he said, “why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s apostle said, “why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?” Hence, Muhammad’s comments indicate that his reason for marrying Aisha while a young virgin is so that he could fondle and sexually play with her! AISHA WAS NOT THE ONLY BABY GIRL MUHAMMAD FANTASIZED ABOUT In the classic history, Sirat Rasul Allah (The Life of Muhammad) by Ibn Ishaq, there is an account in which Muhammad expressed a marital interest in a crawling baby. This event seems to have occurred around the time of the battle of of Badr, when he was about 55 years old. He had married Aisha two years earlier, when he was 53 years of age. (Suhayli, ii. 79: in the Riwaya of Yunus i. I. Recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lfadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said, ‘if she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’ but he died before she grew up and sufyan b. Al-aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him rizq and lubab… [Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 311] Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “if she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Musnad Ahmad, number 25636) MUHAMMAD WOULD BATH & FONDLE AISHA Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little Aisha and fondle her. Narrated ‘Aisha: The prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses). MUHAMMAD CONSUMMATED HIS MARRIAGE TO BABY AISHA, WHEN SHE WAS 9 Sunaan abu Dawud: book 11, number 2161: Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: I and the apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. The clothe). MUHAMMAD WOULD SEXUALLY ABUSE HIS WIVES Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period. Bukhari volume 1, book 6, number 299: Narrated ‘Abdur-rahman bin al-Aswad: …(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the prophet could.” WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223] Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex. According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine, which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls. ALLAH PROMOTES PEDOPHILIA Quran 65.4 “and those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. They are still immature) their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to him, he will make his matter easy for him.” Sura (65:4) lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed period for divorce. It clearly says, Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age. This means that Muslim men were allowed to marry baby girls. This is the eternal word of god. This is an eternal law of Allah. All Muslims must believe in this teaching. Otherwise, they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam. ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED THE RAPE OF FEMALE CAPTIVES: RAPE JIHAD: Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus. Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born. REMEMBER: ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE Al-’Azl Al-’Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-’Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject. Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle . Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135 Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed. Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136 When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.” Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432 “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24 You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like). Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4: “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.” MARRIAGE IN ISLAM: A WHOREHOUSE FOR MEN, A JAILHOUSE FOR WOMEN In the Quran, there is no word for marriage. The only word used is nikah, which means ‘having sex’ or ‘sexual intercourse’ in Arabic. WIVES IN ISLAM According to Quran a wife is some one with whom you have sex with. Different types of wives are: 1. A paid wife with an open ended contract (House wife) 2. A paid wife with a fixed term contract (Muta wife) 3. A paid visitation only wife with a visitation contract (Misyar wife) 4. Slave girl (bought gifted or captured) The price paid for vagina is called Mahr. Thus according to Quran a contract wife is like a whore who gets paid for her vagina called Mahr while a slave girl wife is like a whore who does not get paid a Mahr for her vagina. Q 4.24: Seek out wives by means of your wealth, and give those with whom ye have cohabited their price. APPROACH HER IN ANY WAY YOU WANT A wife has no say in the way the husband approaches her for enjoyment. Prophet said (Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 81): “you are given the right to enjoy the women’s private parts”. Q 2.223: Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations in any manners), when or how you will. (trs. Hilali & Khan) WIVES CAN BE DUMPED AT WILL Like a client can dump a whore at will and pick up another one, the Quran says a husband can dump his wife and get another one. Q 4.20. If you want to exchange one wife for another than don’t take back any part of what you paid her. Hadiths say that Hasan Bin Ali, Prophet Mohammad’s beloved grand son, who died young, went through more than 70 wives in his short life. The husband is like a client of a whore. Once a wife is paid Mahr she is obliged to submit her private parts 24/7 to him. WHORES CAN DUMP A CLIENT, MUSLIM WIVES CANNOT DUMP HER HUSBAND If a whore changes her mind and does not want sex she can. She can return the money and kick him out. However, in Islam a wife does not have that liberty. Once the Mahr is paid her vagina is his to enjoy. She must submit to him any time he gets an urge. Ibn Majah 1854: “Prophet said if he asks her to surrender herself to him for sexual intercourse on a camel’s back, she should not refuse him even on a camel’s saddle.” However in our prophet’s case, whenever he had a huge urge (erection) and his child-wife got scared and ran away during foreplay, he had to catch her, bribe her with a new doll and drag her back to bed. SAYING NO COSTS ISLAMIC WIVES WHIPPING AND DIVINE CURSING If a wife refuses sex to a husband Allah ordered husbands to give her a good whipping. Quran 4.34: Scourge (whip) your wife if she does not obey. And ordered angels to curse her all night. Bukhari 4.54.460: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed for sex and if she , he angels will curse her till morning”. A WHIPPED WIFE MUST BE PUT ON AN INJURED LIST Once a wife is whipped badly, she cannot lie down and have sex without severe pain, seriously limiting the ways a husband can approach her thus violating aya 2.223. Our prophet told the momins to postpone sex with her. Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 132: The Prophet said, “When you flog your wife like you flog your slave then postpone the sexual intercourse.” VAGINA CONTRACTS OPEN-ENDED CONTRACT (REGULAR WIFE) A n open ended contract is signed for a negotiated price for an undetermined period. In addition wife gets boarding lodging and clothing. However if the husband decides to dump her, he can break the contract verbally and kick her out (4.20) any time he wants to but he cannot get any money back he paid for her vagina even if he used it for five minutes. Q 4.20: if you replace a wife by another, you cannot get any part of Mahr back even if it was a large sum. A broken contract cannot be renewed until the her vagina is used by another momin and is then released (halala). Q 2.230: And if he has divorced her, then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has sex with another husband. And if he has divorced her then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has married another husband. Then, if the other husband divorces her, it is no sin on both of them that they reunite. On the other hand a wife has no right to break a contract similarly. She can only break it if she can prove him to be impotent or insane in a court of law. SHORT-TERM CONTRACT or MUTA WIFE A man can sign a contract with a woman to use her vagina for a pre-determined period at negotiated price. The contract can be renewed without the requirement of interim use of her vagina by another man. VISITATION CONTRACT (MISYAR WIFE) In this contract a husband visits a misyar wife for sexual pleasure and pays her for each visit. The husband does not have to provide her boarding and lodging. WAYS TO ACQUIRE SLAVE GIRLS A slave girl doesn’t get paid Mahr for her vagina. She is acquired as a free gift (Maria was a free gift for Prophet from Egyptian king), bought from another owner (sometimes prophet took away pretty girls for free from their owners*) or captured after killing her father or husband (prophet took 20% of the captured women from a raid booty). Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4345: It has been narrated on the authority of Salama (b. al-Akwa’) who said: We fought against the Fazara and Abu Bakr was the commander over us. Abu Bakr bestowed a young girl upon me as a prize. She was one of the prettiest girls in Arabia. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her (had not have sex with her) when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me in the street and said: Give me that girl, O Salama. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me again in the street (Salama was parading the young beauty to make other jihadis jealous). Prophet said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father. I said: She is for you. Messenger of Allah! By Allah, I have not yet disrobed her. SLAVE GIRLS ARE THE BEST BARGAINS IN ISLAM Quranic ayas 4.3, 4.24, 23.6, 33.50 & 70.30 allow a Muslim man to have sex with slave girls. A slave girl can be bought or acquired by killing infidels and capturing their wives and daughters. Slave girls are the best bargain Islam has to offer to Muslim men but unfortunately Muslims are denying themselves this great reward from Allah just to appease infidel west. The uses of a slave-girl are: 1. They provide sex 24/7. 2. They are used as house maid 3. Offered as sex partners to overnight house guests. 4. Offered as gifts to family and friends for a few days or for good*. (*The History of Tabari, vol 8, pge 29-30: From his share of captive women, prophet gave his son-in-law, Ali a slave girl, Raytah bt Hilal to enjoy her at his will. He also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave girl Zainab b. Hayan, and bestowed another girl (name unknown) to his father in-law Omar Ibn Khattab. Omar gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of Prophet’s other elite companions received slave girls as gifts). 5. Sold to raise cash, if the need be. SLAVE GIRLS ARE INCOME PROPERTIES Islam is the only religion which allows momins to pimp the bodies of their slave girls for side incomes. Thus Quran taught 1400 years back what modern day pimps are learning now, that is to control many prostitutes and get rich on their income. However Islam is a very compassionate religion. While many pimps force their prostitutes to sell their bodies, Islam prefers that momins avoid coercion. Q 24.33. Do not compel your slave girls to prostitution to drive income from her body if they are not willing. But of course Allah is a forgiving God. In case momins do beat them up and force them to prostitute, Allah said he will forgive them. Q 24.33. (continued) But if you did force her to prostitute Allah can forgive you because he is forgiving and compassionate.
          • LM, I used to do very well in my School life and later have done better in my business and family life.

            The method I apply, to every situation, is that I visualise and ask everything that is being fed to the brain and nothing should be left to perplexity later. You have to ASK to get whatever you want and people are always there to give an answer. Being filled with haughtiness and pride destroys even the strongest bonds and suspicion ….suspicion is like a flaming sword that severs that bond!

            What do you say to that?

          • I tend to think Only Pure objectivity is the best response …. Objectivity does not mean that you must believe in every thing people say …on the contrary it means quiet the opposite . Take court cases for example …I have no firsthand information about any case so I refuse to make any decision based on what PEOPLE TELL ME…So I refuse to say that the accused party is innocent and he/she should be freed and at the same time I dont give in to those who tell me that the accused is a criminal . Only true Objectivity and Dispassion allows me to see the situation as it is ….Suspicion is good as long as its fair to all sides of a story and I think this is what being Objective helps me achieve.

        • LM, without sounding scholarly, objectivity is neutrality, were as subjectivity is proceeding from or taking place in a person’s mind. When referring to negativity it is NOT the bias…or the negativity Bias but the perception of an inquiring mind through ASKING!

          When NEWS…any channel reports a subject you CANNOT take that reporting Objectively but Subjectively….in that you have to think through your own perception as well. So, you will gain knowledge through the negativity of asking and NOT depend on the actual reporting as you will begin sifting the opinion from the facts. How does one achieve that? It is ONLY through Subjectivity and Negativity, correct?

          Thus the “asking” overrides any non-conformity as the matters may remain pending before the courts for their ruling. It is not always the case that the courts are always right!

          We know of thousands of cases where High court’s rulings have been flipped over by the Supreme or Appeals courts, in the World.

          For example : Ashram dude’s case is already known through witnesses, viral videos and intimidation of witnesses by acid throwing…which is an extremely heinous crime…which his gundas did. But the rapings he used to do and that is a fact. The world knows that as a fact! He is NOT a victim of injustice or media targetings…after all the dude has been exposed and so has his son!!

          Would you have been talking soft about the crook who has amassed billions, stashed poor peoples cash in foreign banks if he had done the molestations to any of your very close kin??

          • In any incident where the hard facts are not available to me first hand I am always going to believe in the Facts and Proofs which a court of law duly accepts as facts and proofs and nothing else. I dont see anything wrong with my position.

          • …and this means the final decision of the judiciary . I refuse to make my decision based on exaggerated news stories alone which ask us to take accusations as facts .

          • LM, you are an intelligent person and have NO hatred towards any religion though you have every right of criticising any faith where it is wrong…and it is for us to support you through negativity of asking. For example, I may ask very irrelevant questions like : where is God?…where does he she live…where??? Why do people believe in the scriptures when ALL of them are human made?? Why are there religions…different faiths in the FIRST place? How do people receive guidance from God? If God/s are in heavens, then why build Temples, churches and Mosques…and why believe in all these fake Pirs, pastors and Babas who are there ONLY to suck off the people????

            Asharam Dude’s case : He has NOT been convicted to date as yet but was nabbed for a crime called RAPE.. right? Since he awaits trial, just because he is a “baba”(an Arabic word)…does that mean he should be allowed to walk free until the time of the trial? If YES, then that would be injustice to all the suspected criminals in the world and if NO then he is already a suspected criminal. It means this dirty dude should be put under Lock and Key until further notice…save for the few, he has NO sympathisers but deadly goons!!!! There should be a ZERO taint in the personality, behaviour, speech…etc., of a LEADER…this Old dude is just silly…and needs to die behind bars. How many of such sleep with the daughters, wives, mothers of others…these dudes are DANGEROUS!!

            In Islam, the Quran is the Leader…and how do you taint an open Book for ALL to read, a Book that establishes Morality for mankind? Even if you are NOT a Muslim, at the least, go through it and you will form NO different view from mine!

            This “Sexual Bapu” didn’t attend the court recently because he suddenly felt his body shuddering ….as the reality downed on him… and visited the prison hospital instead!

          • First of all All religions preach the highest standards of morality for humans , the theology might be different but the basic manual of life offered by all faiths( even atheist faiths like Buddhism) is more or less similar.

            Asking questions to increase your level of understanding cannot be called as being Negative until those questions are purposely aimed at hurting or insulting someone .

            I think I have made it clear that to me, when facts are completely unknown, its the Judiciary which matters the most . Any party to any judicial case should only be allowed to go free only if it has been proven that the party is innocent . So the question of letting anyone go free just like that does not even arises.

            Needing to go to a hospital means that the individual need some medical attention and any made-up or fake situation will be easy to spot by the trained medical professionals . Anyway …I dont see how that affects the court proceedings in any manner , the case will continue no matter what and that is the way it should be… I know that in the end no party or individual but the TRUTH will come out as the winner . My Insistence is on the final decision of the court and nothing else.

      • Salaam,

        Muhammad was an illiterate Arab & camel driver. Arabs were very slow coming to reading & writing. Poetry was their means of passing on traditions, history & religion.

        The Prophet’s life is perhaps the most fully and rigorously documented of any person in pre-modern times

        THE PERFECT EXAMPLE TO MANKIND

        THE PERFECT MUSLIM

        And surely thou hast sublime morals
        (Surat Al-Qalam 68:4).

        Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar
        (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:21).

        Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly.

        ALLAH’S ARITHMETIC: 54 INTO 9 GOES NICELY

        THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA

        A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults.
        Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man?
        Do you think that is what she would choose?
        Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old?

        The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old.

        MUHAMMAD: HIS SEX LIFE, SEX ABUSE & CHILD MOLESTING

        Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly. Let us investigate how did the prophet live Islam; how did the prophet apply the eternal teachings of God in his daily life? In this search for the historical Muhammad, we will utilize the Islam’s holy books, its own writings.

        MUHAMMAD’S MOLESTATION OF BABY AISHA

        Muhammad fantasized about baby Aisha before soliciting her from her father.
        Sahih Bukhari 9.140
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        Allah’s apostle said to me, “you were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘if this is from Allah, then it must happen.

        AISHA’S FATHER DID NOT APPROVE AT FIRST

        Aisha’s father, Abu Bakr, wasn’t on board at first, but Muhammad explained how the rules of their religion made it possible. This is similar to the way that present-day cult leaders manipulate their followers into similar concessions.
        Sahih Bukhari 7.18
        Narrated ‘Ursa:
        The prophet asked abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “but I am your brother.” the prophet said, “you are my brother in Allah’s religion and his book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.”

        MUHAMMAD WOULD THIGH WITH BABY AISHA

        HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH

        Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).

        Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.

        According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.

        Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?

        Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.

        Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).

        The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’

        After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.

        That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers'” (Fatwa No. 31409).

        Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

        AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES

        From the Hadith of Bukhari:

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

        Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

        I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

        From the Hadith of Bukhari:

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        as above (229).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        MARRIAGE AGE LAWS UNISLAMIC: PAK SCHOLARS

        By Aamir Latif, OnIslam Correspondent

        Wednesday, 12 March 2014

        The CII announced that laws setting age for marriage are un-Islamic and that Muslim children can get married at any age once they attain puberty.
        KARACHI – A ruling by a prestigious religious council describing laws banning underage marriage in Pakistan as un-Islamic has divided the country’s scholars and activists over the Islamic ruling and changing economic conditions surrounding the widespread practice.
        “Terming the underage marriage completely invalid and illegal is not the right thing,” Maulana Wali Razi, a Karachi-based religious scholar, and a former state minister for religious affairs , told OnIslam.net.
        “There are examples of underage marriages even in the Islamic history , including that of noble Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon Him) with Umm-ul-Momineen ( Mother of Muslims), Syeda Ayesha Siddiqa (RA),” he added. Maulana Razi was commenting on the ruling of the country’s Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) issued on Tuesday which sparked contradicting reactions.
        The CII, a constitutional body responsible for giving legal advice to the government on Islamic issues, announced that laws setting age for marriage are un-Islamic and that Muslim children can get married at any age once they attain puberty.
        Maulana Mohammad Khan Sherani, a former senator, who is serving as the CII chairman for the second term, ruled that the laws are unfair as no age could be set for marriage, and Nikkah of even minors can be solemnized but only with the consent of their guardians.
        However, the wife and the husband could only be allowed to live together once they reach puberty.
        According to current laws, the minimum age for a girl to marry is 16, and for a boy is 18. However, the said laws are practically not followed, especially in rural Pakistan.
        Islam highly appreciates marriage and gives it due care stating detailed rules and ruling in every single and small matter.
        Islam doesn’t impose a specific age for eligibility for marriage and leaves it for the legal authorities to decide the proper age for marriage in order to maintain interests of both husbands and wives.
        This, of course, changes from one country or community to anther depending on many considerable factors.
        In Islam also it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry.
        Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission.

        CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES

        Though Maulana Razi agreed that there is no age limit set for marriage, he asserted that underage marriages can create a host of social and economic problems not only for the couple, but for their families as well.
        “Things have completely changed. Every era has its own demands and conditions,” Maulana Razi told OnIslam.net.
        “Today’s children are not that mature. In my opinion, they (underage couples) are not able to cope with the tough terrain of marriage”.
        “Nowadays, personal liking and disliking are very important. The children may bow to their parents at the time of wedding no matter they like each other or not, but after marriage, their life will be in deep trouble,” he maintained.
        Economic issue plays an equally vital role in regard to underage marriage, Razi opines.
        “It’s not the old era when necessities of life were limited, and people could survive with minimum means. It’s the era when economy prevails,” he thought.
        “If the husband is a minor and totally dependent on his parents, how would he cope with his and his wife’s economic needs,” Maulana Razi asked.
        “It (dependence) will create an animosity within the family”
        Moreover, he said, the underage couple will more be involved in handling the domestic affairs rather than their education.
        “Therefore, in my opinion, once a boy is economically and socially settled, then he should get married. No doubt as soon as possible,” he added.
        “But, let me make it clear again, there is no age limit for marriage in Shari’ah,” he maintained.
        Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, the chairman of moon-sighting committee, agrees.
        “The guardians have the authority to marry their children on the pretext that being parents they would take all decisions for the betterment of their children,” Mufti Muneeb told OnIslam.net.
        “But, if it is proved that parents have misused this right for vested interest, then the state has the authority to take action,” he clarified.
        Mussarrat Jabeen, a women rights activist and a columnist, however opposes the CII ruling.
        “Underage marriage means, you are snatching their childhood,” she told OnISlam.net.
        “It is a proven fact that even if a child skips one year through double promotion in school, he or she misses the entire environment that he or she should have experienced during that one year,” she opined.
        The women rights activist, however, agreed with Maulana Razi that the mental immaturity can cause various social issues for the underage couple.
        “Marriage requires mental maturity and sanity. And if this is not there, the marriage will turn out to be a total mess,” Jabeen contended.

        CHILD MARRIAGE DEBATES REIGNITE IN YEMEN
        OnIslam & News Agencies
        Sunday, 15 September 2013 00:00

        Yemeni former child bride Nujud Mohammed Ali protests in support of a child marriage ban in Sanaa in 2010.
        SANAA – As the story of the Yemeni child who has reportedly died on her wedding night continues to cast shadows on the Yemeni government, a prominent Yemeni official has called to activate the legal age for marriage bill and raise it to 18 years.
        “We are asking to fix the legal age for marriage at 18, as Yemen is a signatory to the international conventions on children’s rights,” Yemen’s Human Rights Minister Huriya Mashhoor, told Agence France Presse (AFP) on Saturday, September 14.
        The minister noted that she aims to activate legal age for marriage bill which was issued in 2009 and subsequently froze by Al-Islah party.
        “I wrote to the president of the chamber of deputies to re-file on the parliamentary agenda the bill limiting the age of marriage,” Mashhoor said.
        Moreover, she urged to amend the minimum age for marriage to be 18 years, instead of 17.
        Mashhoor’s proposal followed last week reports about the death of an eight-year-old girl in Yemen of internal injuries on the first night of her marriage to a man in his 40s.
        The story of Rawan’s death, denied by local officials, has sparked anger over the old Yemeni practice.
        Child marriages are widespread in Yemen.
        Estimates show that 52 percent of Yemeni girls are married off before the age of 18 and 14 percent before the age of 15.
        There are some cases in which young girls as little as 8 were being allowed to enter a marital union.
        Islam highly appreciates marriage and gives it due care stating detailed rules and ruling in every single and small matter.
        Islam doesn’t impose a specific age for eligibility for marriage and leaves it for the legal authorities to decide the proper age for marriage in order to maintain interests of both husbands and wives.
        This, of course, changes from one country or community to anther depending on many considerable factors.
        In Islam also it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry.
        Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission.
        WORRYING TRADITION
        The minister’s proposed bill followed Yemeni officials’ denial of the incident, confirming that Rawan is still alive.
        “The young girl Rawan Abdo Hattan is still alive and normally lives with her family who, in turn, deny the whole thing,” Ali al-Qaissi, the governor of Hajja province, told Yemeni official news agency SABA on Saturday.
        “The young girl is currently in a social protection centre after undergoing physical and psychological tests in a public hospital in the area.”
        Prior to Al-Qaissi’s statement, the Human Rights Minister said that they still lack ‘evidence’ to the girl’s death, raising concern about the attempts to ‘silence’ the case.
        “We do not have enough evidence at the moment about the incident,” Mashhoor said.
        “But I am worried that there could be an attempt to silence the matter, especially as it took place in an isolated rural area in Hajja province where there have been similar cases before.
        “If the case was confirmed and covered up, then the crime would be more serious,” she added.
        Last Wednesday, Human Rights Watch warned that 14 percent of girls in Yemen are married before the age of 15, and 52 percent before 18, citing Yemeni and 2006 data from the United Nations.
        In certain rural areas, girls as young as eight are sometimes given in marriage to men much older than they.
        Earlier in 2012, a HRW report said the repercussions of child marriages reverberate throughout Yemeni society as it prevents women from completing their education, keeping Yemen in a state of prolonged ignorance.
        The problem of Yemeni child marriage caused worldwide outrage in 2010, with the case of Nujod Mohamed Ali who had been married at the age of 10 to a man 20 years her senior in 2008.
        Granted a divorce after he sexually abused and beat her, Ali became involved in campaigns against forced underage marriages, leading to calls to ban women from marrying before the age of 18.
        Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, the highest religious body in the Sunni Muslim world, has recently issued a manual on the rights of Muslim children.
        “Marriage in Islam is regulated by certain rules, namely, children must reach puberty and maturity so that they can get married,” the manual said.

        EARLY MARRIAGE SCARS PAKISTANI CHILDREN
        By Aamir Latif, OnIslam Correspondent

        “I had no idea what did marriage mean? Sassi told IOL.
        KARACHI — Eleven-year old Sassi is currently hiding at a shelter home located in a slum area of Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi.
        She is not hiding from police, but from her own drug-addict father, who had sold her in the name of marriage to a 70-year old man when she was 9 in 2005.
        “I had no idea what did marriage mean? I remember my mother was crying, and fighting with my father, who was forcing me to go with them (her husband and family),” Sassi told IslamOnline.net in the corridor of her shelter house.
        “They beat up my mother who was trying to save me.”
        Hailing from a small town Thatta, located some 100 kilometers off southeast Karachi, Sassi had been recovered by the local police on the request of her mother who filed a petition in a court some 20 days after her daughter’s forced marriage.
        “They forcibly took me to their home in a nearby village,” she recalled.
        “As soon as I reached their home, one of their women gave me something to eat, which got me unconscious. When I woke up the next morning, my clothes were littered with blood.”
        Sassi said she was “molested” by her husband several times.
        The police arrested her father and her husband, who were later released on bail following non-pursuance of case by her mother.
        The father had received Rs 70,000 (1200 US dollars) for marrying her to the aging man.
        Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf said on Tuesday, December 5, his government was planning legislation to outlaw forced marriages, including a practice of marrying off women to settle disputes.
        The annual number of child marriages taking place in Pakistan remains unknown.
        It is believed most such forced marriages, many occurring in relatively remote rural areas, go unreported.
        Parents are often tempted to sell off young girls in exchange for the high price offered by grooms, often many times the age of their brides.
        Bride prices commonly range from $1,000 to $5,000, with younger girls drawing a larger amount.
        In Islam it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry.
        Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission.
        NIGHTMARE
        Sassi said the days she spent with her husband were her worst nightmare.
        “I didn’t know what to do. I just wanted to either die or flee from there,” she said with her eyes welled up with tears.
        “But he used to keep a close eye on me. It seemed as if he knew about my wish.”
        Sassi was sent by her mother to a shelter home, run by an NGO providing shelter to homeless women, with the assistance of Thatta-based women organization.
        “My mother sent me here because they (her husband and his family) had threatened to abduct me,” she said.
        “They said that I am the honor of their family, and they can’t let their honor to go away.”
        Sassi is studying, working and residing in the shelter house.
        “I am very happy here. I don’t want to go back.”
        Haider Rizvi, Chairman of the Department of Psychology, University of Karachi, warns of the extreme adverse physical and emotional impacts of such marriages.
        “If a young girl gets married in her quite early age carries many health hazards like poor reproductive health due to increased pregnancies, therefore chances of death become double,” he told IOL.
        “The poor young poor girls cannot get proper education, cannot even get the opportunity to learn the domestic work/skills……..especially when the expectations of in-laws are quite high then domestic problems are started……consequently end up with early divorce.”
        The expert also notes that with a big age difference, the chances of becoming a widow at a younger age is more likely.
        “Psychological theories reveal that most of us develop a primary relationship with someone who is within three years of our own age. In our urban society, now the acceptance has been developed for young couples; on contrary in rural or slum areas the situation remains the same where the female is considered as a child producing machine or a sex-tool.”
        Rizvi maintains that it is high time for parents to think and revise their cultural and family norms.
        “The early marriages for the girls should be discouraged at every level of the society.”

        COMMON

        Sassi ‘s lawyer, Saleha Naeem, says early marriages are common in rural areas of the South Asian Muslim country, where women make up nearly 52 percent of the population.
        “This is not the only case. I am also seeing the cases of three other girls, and one of them was married when she was only 6 years old,” Saleha told IOL.
        According to the law, she says, a girl cannot marry until she is 16, but like all other laws, the implementation of this law is weak.
        Saleha thinks the specter of illiteracy is behind the early marriage phenomenon.
        “A majority of people in the rural areas are unaware of the importance of an educated mother. Instead of providing education to their daughters, they want to get rid of them as soon as possible by marrying them to even men of their fathers’ age,” she said.
        “There needs to be greater awareness on a wider level of the rights of women and also punishment for those who violate laws by selling their children. The impunity available to them has aggravated the situation,” insisted the lawyer.
        The Sindh and southern Punjab region is one of the most impoverished in the country, and research carried out into the issue indicates this is a key factor in the increase in such unlawful unions.
        “This phenomenon is common in families belonging to low income bracket,” Justice (rtd) Majida Rizvi told IOL.
        “They generally consider girls as burden, and illiteracy is a major reason for that. As soon as the girls turn 11-12, they think it is high time to get rid of this burden,” she said.
        “It’s a perverted society in many ways. We have reports that such marriages are becoming increasingly common, and they will stop only if the law is applied.”

        COMPLICATED

        Justice Majida, who was Pakistan’s first woman high court judge, notes that the legality of early marriages in Pakistan is a complicated issue.
        “Under Pakistani law, the Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 states no female under 16 or male less than 18 may marry. But under Hudood Ordinance, as soon as a girl reaches her puberty, she can marry,” aid the chairwoman of Women Rights Commission.
        “This complication needs to be sorted out because Pakistan is a warm country, and generally girls reach their puberty at 11 or 12 years here,” Justice Majida said.
        In 1990, Pakistan ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Child, which prohibits child marriages.
        In addition under the Muslim Family Law Ordinance, a girl must have attained the age of 16 and a boy must have turned 18, and both need to consent before the marriage can take place.
        Hassamuddin Mansoori, a renowned religious scholar, says there is no age restriction for marriage in Islam.
        “The 16-year age restriction is in the Pakistan panel code. It has nothing to do with Islamic law,” he said.
        “According to Islamic law, if a girl or boy has reached puberty, they can marry.”
        Mansoori said that marriage in Islam is regulated by certain rules, mainly that children must reach puberty and maturity to get married.
        However, he said, the decision of marriage should be taken in line with the cultural, economic and social conditions of local society.
        “There is no provision of forced marriages in Islam. This is totally unacceptable,” Mansoori insisted.
        He recalled that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) asked for his daughter Fatima’s consent before marrying her to imam Ali.
        “A Woman has the right to accept or reject marriage proposals,” Mansoori averred.
        “Her consent is a prerequisite to the validity of the marital contract, according to the Prophet’s teaching. It follows that if an “arranged marriage” means the marrying of a female without her consent, then such a marriage may be annulled if the female so wishes,” he added.
        “If a person classified as a child is married, when he or she reaches the age of puberty and maturity, then Islam gives him or her the right to choose whether to go on with that marriage or not”, he maintained.
        “It’s not mandatory that the day you reach puberty, you have to get married. No, not at all. This is only permission that now you can marry. Otherwise, this decision should be taken in line with the circumstances being faced by every individual.”

        CUSTOMS

        In 2002, the then Chief Justice Irshad Hassan declared the two notorious customs of Vani and Swara as un-Islamic and expressed concern over the rising number of these cases.
        Vani and Swara customs are found in some parts of Punjab and NWFP respectively under which minor girls of a family are married to men, no matter how old they are, of the rival family to settle down enmities and disputes.
        Recently, two girls were rescued by the intervention of the Chief Minister of Punjab.
        A 17-year-old girl was about to be married to a 77-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl was about to be married to a 55-year-old man to settle a criminal dispute in Mianwali, a southern district of Punjab.
        These marriages were arranged by four murder convicts who saved themselves from the death penalty after reaching an agreement with the aggrieved family to pay a fine and hand over eight young girls as “compensation” to the aggrieved family.
        “Although there are national laws such as the Marriage Restraint Act of 1929 and the Pakistan Penal Code that prohibit the sale and underage marriage of girls, these customary practices will be difficult to prevent unless laws are rigorously implemented and those breaching the contract are dealt with strictly under the law,” said Justice Majida.

        CHILD BRIDE DEATH TRIGGERS YEMEN UPROAR
        OnIslam & Newspapers
        Tuesday, 10 September 2013 00:00

        Child marriages are widespread in Yemen.
        CAIRO – Reports about the death of an eight-year-old girl in Yemen of internal injuries on the first night of her marriage to a man more than five times her age has sparked anger over the widespread practice, denied vehemently by Yemeni officials.
        “Her family and her groom could have waited for some time before having this marriage,” a blogger using the moniker “Sad” was quoted by Gulf News.
        “It was not fair at all and the marriage should not have happened even if some tribes believe that it is a good custom.”

        The story was first caught by the Kuwait daily Al-Watan which said that an eight-year old Yemeni school girl, Rawan, has reportedly died from internal injuries on her wedding night in the northern province of Hajja.
        Sparking outrage worldwide, the case prompted calls for immediate and harsh sanctions against whoever was involved in allowing a pre-pubescent eight-years old Yemeni school girl to marry a man in his 40s.
        As the news spread, people took their protests to Twitter, Facebook and their personal blogs, determined to protest child marriage and what they perceived as child abuse.
        Other bloggers offered their prayers for the “bride”, lashing out at the “groom” and the girl’s family.
        Angry Man, a blogger, posted that the man was “an animal who deserved to be punished severely for his crime.”
        “All those who supported such a crime should also be punished,” he said.
        Bu Omar said that he was disturbed by the death report.
        “Rawan’s family members are not humans. They do not deserve to have children,” he said.
        Rights activists have also condemned the report, urging Yemeni authorities to pursue the matter legally.
        Child marriages are widespread in Yemen.
        Estimates show that 52 percent of Yemeni girls are married off before the age of 18 and 14 percent before the age of 15.
        Marriage in Islam is of utmost importance as it is upon the lawful union of a man and a woman that society grows strong and that moral is preserved.
        In Islam it is not permissible for the guardian to compel the one under his guardianship to marry someone she does not desire to marry.
        Rather, it is necessary to seek her consent and permission.
        DENIAL
        As outrage is growing in magnitude, Yemeni officials denied the accident, rejecting the media version of the story.
        “When I heard the rumors, I called the girl’s father. He came with his daughter and denied the marriage and death of his daughter,” said Mosleh Al Azzani, the director of Criminal Investigation in Harradh district where the marriage allegedly took place, Yemen Post reported.
        “I have the photos of the girl and will show it to anyone.”
        Aziz Saleh, a local investigative journalist also confirmed that he personally contacted the authorities and received assurances that media reports had been fabricated.
        “All of them maintained that neither the marriage nor death had taken place,” he said.
        Ahmed al-Qurishi, the head of SEYAJ Organization for Childhood Protection, an NGO which advocates children’s rights also denied the media version of the story.
        “I got in touch with the director of Criminal Investigation, Hajja’s prosecutor and the province’s security chief who all flatly denied the story,” he said.
        Al Qurishi said that his organization conducted its own investigation into the issue by sending some activists to the area.
        “The preliminary results show that the story was untrue,” he said.
        “Some people create these stories to get publicity and attention and aid from international organizations.”
        Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, the highest religious body in the Sunni Muslim world, has recently issued a manual on the rights of Muslim children.
        “Marriage in Islam is regulated by certain rules, namely, children must reach puberty and maturity so that they can get married,” the manual said.
        A recent HRW report said the repercussions of child marriages reverberate throughout Yemeni society as it prevents women from completing their education, keeping Yemen in a state of prolonged ignorance.
        MUHAMMAD, 50, MARRIES BABY AISHA AGE 6
        Sahih Bukhari volume 5, book 58, number 234
        Narrated Aisha: the prophet engaged (married) me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, um ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became alright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some ansari women who said, “best wishes and Allah’s blessing and a good luck.” then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.
        Sahih bukhari volume 8, book 73, number 151
        Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the prophet would call them to join and play with me. (the playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-bari page 143, vol.13)
        Muhammad’s father in law, Umar bin Khattab, the second rightly guided khalifa, married a child, Umm Kulthum. Umm Khultum was about 9 years old when she was married. Umar was certainly not doing wrong according to Islam, Muhammad once said that even the devil would step aside when he met Umar in an alley. Islam is indeed the true religion for pedophiles, rapists, sadistics etc.
        Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3310:
        ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.

        Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

        Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: I have been informed that ‘Aisha remained with the Prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death).” what you know of the Quran (by heart)’
        Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88
        Narrated ‘Ursa:
        The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).
        Some Muslims claim that it was Abu Bakr who approached Muhammad asking him to marry his daughter. This is of course not true and here is the proof.
        Sahih Bukhari 7.18
        Narrated ‘Ursa:
        The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “But I am your brother.” The Prophet said, “You are my brother in Allah’s religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.”
        Arabs were a primitive lot with little rules to abide. Yet they had some code of ethics that they honored scrupulously. For example, although they fought all the year round, they abstained from hostilities during certain holy months of the year. They also considered Mecca to be a holy city and did not make war against it. A adopted son’s wife was deemed to be a daughter in law and they would not marry her. Also it was customary that close friends made a pact of brotherhood and considered each other as true brothers. The Prophet disregarded all of these rules anytime they stood between him and his interests or whims.
        Abu Bakr and Muhammad had pledged to each other to be brothers. So according to their customs Ayesha was supposed to be like a niece to the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca. Yet that did not stop him asking Abu Bakr for her hand, even when she was only six years old.
        But this moral relativist “Holy Prophet” of Mecca would use the same excuse to reject a woman he did not like.
        Sahih Bukhari V.7, B62, N. 37
        Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
        It was said to the Prophet, “Won’t you marry the daughter of Hamza?” He said, “She is my foster niece (brother’s daughter). ”
        Hamza and Abu Bakr both were the foster brothers of Muhammad. But Ayesha must have been too pretty for the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca to abide by the codes of ethics and custom.
        In the following Hadith he confided to Aisha that he had dreamed of her before soliciting her from her father.
        Sahih Bukhari 9.140
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        Allah’s Apostle said to me, “You were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘Uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘If this is from Allah, then it must happen.
        Whether Muhammad had actually such a dream or he just said it to please Aisha is not the point. What matters here is that it indicates that Aisha was a baby being “carried” by an angel when the Prophet dreamed of her.
        There are numerous hadithes that explicitly reveal the age of Ayesha at the time of her marriage. Here are some of them.
        Sahih Bukhari 5.236.
        Narrated Hisham’s father:
        Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.
        Sahih Bukhari 5.234
        Narrated Aisha:
        The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.
        And in another Hadith we read.
        Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 41, Number 4915, also Number 4916 and Number 4917
        Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
        The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) married me when I was seven or six. When we came to Medina, some women came. according to Bishr’s version: Umm Ruman came to me when I was swinging. They took me, made me prepared and decorated me. I was then brought to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him), and he took up cohabitation with me when I was nine. She halted me at the door, and I burst into laughter.
        In the above hadith we read that Aisha was swinging, This is a play of little girls not grown up people. The following Hadith is particularly interesting because it shows that Aisha was so small that was not aware what was going on when the Holy Prophet “surprised” her by going to her.
        Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 90
        Narrated Aisha:
        When the Prophet married me, my mother came to me and made me enter the house (of the Prophet) and nothing surprised me but the coming of Allah’s Apostle to me in the forenoon.

        Must have been quite a surprise! But the following is also interesting because it demonstrates that she was just a kid playing with her dolls. Pay attention to what the interpreter wrote in the parenthesis. (She was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty)

        Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)

        Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311
        ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.
        The holy Prophet died when he was 63. So he must have married Aisha when he as 51 and went to her when he was 54.
        Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 33
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        I never felt so jealous of any woman as I did of Khadija, though she had died three years before the Prophet married me, and that was because I heard him mentioning her too often, and because his Lord had ordered him to give her the glad tidings that she would have a palace in Paradise, made of Qasab and because he used to slaughter a sheep and distribute its meat among her friends.

        Khadija died in December of 619 AD. That is two years before Hijra. At that time the Prophet was 51-years-old. So in the same year that Khadija died the prophet married Aisha and took her to his home 3 years later, i.e. one year after Hijra. But until she “grew up” he married Umm Salama.
        In another part Aisha claims that as long as she remembers her parents were always Muslims.
        Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 245
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        (the wife of the Prophet) I never remembered my parents believing in any religion other than the true religion (i.e. Islam),
        If Ayesha was older i.e. 16 or 18 as some Muslims claim, she would have remembered the religion of her parents prior to becoming Muslims.

        Now someone may still claim that all these hadithes are lies. People are free to say whatever they want. But truth is clear like the Sun for those who have eyes.
        No sane person would be aroused by a 6-year-old child. Decent people wince at the thought of this shameful act. Yet some Muslims deny them. The question is why so many followers of Muhammad would fabricate so many false hadithes about the age of Aisha, which incidentally confirm each other?

        MUHAMMAD RESERVED BABY AISHA FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE SHE WAS A VIRGIN & HE WANTED A VIRGIN.
        Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 7, book 62, number 17
        Narrated jabir bin ‘abdullah:
        When I got married, Allah’s apostle said to me, “what type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” he said, “why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s apostle said, “why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?”
        Hence, Muhammad’s comments indicate that his reason for marrying Aisha while a young virgin is so that he could fondle and sexually play with her!

        AISHA WAS NOT THE ONLY BABY GIRL MUHAMMAD FANTASIZED ABOUT
        In the classic history, Sirat Rasul Allah (The Life of Muhammad) by Ibn Ishaq, there is an account in which Muhammad expressed a marital interest in a crawling baby. This event seems to have occurred around the time of the battle of of Badr, when he was about 55 years old. He had married Aisha two years earlier, when he was 53 years of age.
        (Suhayli, ii. 79: in the Riwaya of Yunus i. I. Recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lfadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said,
        ‘if she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’
        but he died before she grew up and sufyan b. Al-aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him rizq and lubab… [Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 311]
        Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “if she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Musnad Ahmad, number 25636)

        MUHAMMAD WOULD BATH & FONDLE AISHA
        Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little Aisha and fondle her.
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        The prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).

        MUHAMMAD CONSUMMATED HIS MARRIAGE TO BABY AISHA, WHEN SHE WAS 9
        Sunaan abu Dawud: book 11, number 2161:
        Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
        I and the apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. The clothe).

        MUHAMMAD WOULD SEXUALLY ABUSE HIS WIVES
        Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period.
        Bukhari volume 1, book 6, number 299:
        Narrated ‘Abdur-rahman bin al-Aswad:
        …(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the prophet could.”

        WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS
        Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior:
        “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223]
        Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex.
        According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine, which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls.

        ALLAH PROMOTES PEDOPHILIA
        Quran 65.4 “and those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. They are still immature) their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to him, he will make his matter easy for him.”
        Sura (65:4) lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed period for divorce. It clearly says, Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age. This means that Muslim men were allowed to marry baby girls. This is the eternal word of god. This is an eternal law of Allah. All Muslims must believe in this teaching. Otherwise, they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam.

        ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE
        “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24
        You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like).
        Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4:
        “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”
        MARRIAGE IN ISLAM:
        A WHOREHOUSE FOR MEN, A JAILHOUSE FOR WOMEN
        In the Quran, there is no word for marriage. The only word used is nikah, which means ‘having sex’ or ‘sexual intercourse’ in Arabic.

        WIVES IN ISLAM
        According to Quran a wife is some one with whom you have sex with.
        Different types of wives are:
        1. A paid wife with an open ended contract (House wife)
        2. A paid wife with a fixed term contract (Muta wife)
        3. A paid visitation only wife with a visitation contract (Misyar wife)
        4. Slave girl (bought gifted or captured)
        The price paid for vagina is called Mahr. Thus according to Quran a contract wife is like a whore who gets paid for her vagina called Mahr while a slave girl wife is like a whore who does not get paid a Mahr for her vagina.
        Q 4.24: Seek out wives by means of your wealth, and give those with whom ye have cohabited their price.

        APPROACH HER IN ANY WAY YOU WANT
        A wife has no say in the way the husband approaches her for enjoyment.
        Prophet said (Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 81): “you are given the right to enjoy the women’s private parts”.
        Q 2.223: Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations in any manners), when or how you will. (trs. Hilali & Khan)

        WIVES CAN BE DUMPED AT WILL
        Like a client can dump a whore at will and pick up another one, the Quran says a husband can dump his wife and get another one.
        Q 4.20. If you want to exchange one wife for another than don’t take back any part of what you paid her.
        Hadiths say that Hasan Bin Ali, Prophet Mohammad’s beloved grand son, who died young, went through more than 70 wives in his short life.
        The husband is like a client of a whore. Once a wife is paid Mahr she is obliged to submit her private parts 24/7 to him.

        WHORES CAN DUMP A CLIENT, MUSLIM WIVES CANNOT DUMP HER HUSBAND
        If a whore changes her mind and does not want sex she can. She can return the money and kick him out. However, in Islam a wife does not have that liberty. Once the Mahr is paid her vagina is his to enjoy. She must submit to him any time he gets an urge.
        Ibn Majah 1854: “Prophet said if he asks her to surrender herself to him for sexual intercourse on a camel’s back, she should not refuse him even on a camel’s saddle.”
        However in our prophet’s case, whenever he had a huge urge (erection) and his child-wife got scared and ran away during foreplay, he had to catch her, bribe her with a new doll and drag her back to bed.

        SAYING NO COSTS ISLAMIC WIVES WHIPPING AND DIVINE CURSING
        If a wife refuses sex to a husband Allah ordered husbands to give her a good whipping.
        Quran 4.34: Scourge (whip) your wife if she does not obey.
        And ordered angels to curse her all night.
        Bukhari 4.54.460: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed for sex and if she , he angels will curse her till morning”.

        A WHIPPED WIFE MUST BE PUT ON AN INJURED LIST
        Once a wife is whipped badly, she cannot lie down and have sex without severe pain, seriously limiting the ways a husband can approach her thus violating aya 2.223. Our prophet told the momins to postpone sex with her.
        Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 132:
        The Prophet said, “When you flog your wife like you flog your slave then postpone the sexual intercourse.”

        VAGINA CONTRACTS
        OPEN-ENDED CONTRACT (REGULAR WIFE)
        A n open ended contract is signed for a negotiated price for an undetermined period. In addition wife gets boarding lodging and clothing. However if the husband decides to dump her, he can break the contract verbally and kick her out (4.20) any time he wants to but he cannot get any money back he paid for her vagina even if he used it for five minutes.
        Q 4.20: if you replace a wife by another, you cannot get any part of Mahr back even if it was a large sum.
        A broken contract cannot be renewed until the her vagina is used by another momin and is then released (halala).
        Q 2.230: And if he has divorced her, then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has sex with another husband. And if he has divorced her then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has married another husband. Then, if the other husband divorces her, it is no sin on both of them that they reunite.
        On the other hand a wife has no right to break a contract similarly. She can only break it if she can prove him to be impotent or insane in a court of law.

        SHORT-TERM CONTRACT or MUTA WIFE
        A man can sign a contract with a woman to use her vagina for a pre-determined period at negotiated price.
        The contract can be renewed without the requirement of interim use of her vagina by another man.

        VISITATION CONTRACT (MISYAR WIFE)
        In this contract a husband visits a misyar wife for sexual pleasure and pays her for each visit. The husband does not have to provide her boarding and lodging.

        WAYS TO ACQUIRE SLAVE GIRLS
        A slave girl doesn’t get paid Mahr for her vagina. She is acquired as a free gift (Maria was a free gift for Prophet from Egyptian king), bought from another owner (sometimes prophet took away pretty girls for free from their owners*) or captured after killing her father or husband (prophet took 20% of the captured women from a raid booty).
        Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4345:
        It has been narrated on the authority of Salama (b. al-Akwa’) who said: We fought against the Fazara and Abu Bakr was the commander over us. Abu Bakr bestowed a young girl upon me as a prize. She was one of the prettiest girls in Arabia. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her (had not have sex with her) when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me in the street and said: Give me that girl, O Salama. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me again in the street (Salama was parading the young beauty to make other jihadis jealous). Prophet said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father. I said: She is for you. Messenger of Allah! By Allah, I have not yet disrobed her.

        SLAVE GIRLS ARE THE BEST BARGAINS IN ISLAM
        Quranic ayas 4.3, 4.24, 23.6, 33.50 & 70.30 allow a Muslim man to have sex with slave girls. A slave girl can be bought or acquired by killing infidels and capturing their wives and daughters.
        Slave girls are the best bargain Islam has to offer to Muslim men but unfortunately Muslims are denying themselves this great reward from Allah just to appease infidel west. The uses of a slave-girl are:
        1. They provide sex 24/7.
        2. They are used as house maid
        3. Offered as sex partners to overnight house guests.
        4. Offered as gifts to family and friends for a few days or for good*.
        (*The History of Tabari, vol 8, pge 29-30: From his share of captive women, prophet gave his son-in-law, Ali a slave girl, Raytah bt Hilal to enjoy her at his will. He also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave girl Zainab b. Hayan, and bestowed another girl (name unknown) to his father in-law Omar Ibn Khattab. Omar gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of Prophet’s other elite companions received slave girls as gifts).
        5. Sold to raise cash, if the need be.

        SLAVE GIRLS ARE INCOME PROPERTIES
        Islam is the only religion which allows momins to pimp the bodies of their slave girls for side incomes. Thus Quran taught 1400 years back what modern day pimps are learning now, that is to control many prostitutes and get rich on their income.
        However Islam is a very compassionate religion. While many pimps force their prostitutes to sell their bodies, Islam prefers that momins avoid coercion.
        Q 24.33. Do not compel your slave girls to prostitution to drive income from her body if they are not willing.
        But of course Allah is a forgiving God. In case momins do beat them up and force them to prostitute, Allah said he will forgive them.
        Q 24.33. (continued) But if you did force her to prostitute Allah can forgive you because he is forgiving and compassionate.

  3. NEVER TRUST RETARDED MOHAMMEDANS:

    ‘PACT OF UMAR’
    Religious genocide Mohammedan style

    The basis of The Pact of Umar is Muslim supremacism over the populations of non-Muslim “People of the Book” (the dhimmis) whom they had defeated in battle. According to the Pact, the lives and property of vanquished peoples were forfeit by reason of their defeat—but their Muslim overlords would refrain from exacting the penalty of death, nor would they be required to convert to Islam, as long as they kept the terms of surrender laid out for them in the Pact.

    The rules are very specific and include stipulations that new churches, monasteries, and synagogues may not be built and existing ones may not be repaired. Bells may not be rung, the Jewish shofar may not be sounded, and prayers and singing must not be heard by Muslims. Specifics about clothing, shoes, and hair style were enforced to mark non-Muslims with a distinctive look. This is where the yellow star for Jews came from. Dhimmis were not permitted to ride a noble animal like a horse, but only a donkey. They were barred from owning weapons. It is forbidden to offer them the Muslim greeting of peace. Dhimmis were forbidden to read, or study, or teach their children the Qur’an.

    Under Islamic law, repairing a dilapidated or damaged church is viewed by Muslims as a flagrant provocation that violates the ordained second-class status of dhimmis in a Muslim-dominated society like Egypt’s. Such provocation, according to the fiery sermons preached in the mosques, automatically revokes the Christians’ right to exist in a Muslim land and gives Muslims the right to “uphold their honor” by attacking the churches and killing the “offending” Christians.

    The Pact of Umar Permits the Persecution of the Copts in Egypt

    Violence in Cairo

    Did You Know That What Egyptian Muslims are Doing to the Copts is Legal Under the Pact of Umar?

    Images of Coptic Christians being savaged in Egypt’s streets, run over with tanks, shot, killed, and beaten with no way to defend themselves horrify us. The sight of howling Muslim mobs surging out of mosques after Friday prayers, wielding clubs, knives, and sticks and intent on destroying yet another ancient Coptic church seems senseless to those who are unfamiliar with the long history of Islamic violence against non-Muslims. And when the Egyptian security services, instead of defending the Copts, opened fire on unarmed Christian demonstrators who were protesting their mistreatment at the hands of their Muslim neighbors, as it did in early October 2011, killing dozens and injuring hundreds, the natural response is outrage.

    What Egypt’s Copts know all too well, but many in the non-Muslim world do not, is that Muslim demands that Christians hide the practice of their faith, allow their churches to fall into ruin, remove the crosses, and silence the bells are all integral to Islamic dogma and stipulated in Islamic law. In fact, ever since the first decades of the Islamic conquest of the Middle East, special rules have been enforced by Muslim conquerors to deal with defeated Christian and Jewish populations and ensure their permanent subjugation.

    These non-Muslim peoples are called the Ahl al-Dhimma or “dhimmi people.” The rules created to emphasize their defeated status and the supremacist identity of Islam were codified by the second Islamic Caliph and named after him in “The Pact of Umar.” These very detailed regulations can be found in books of Islamic law such as “The Reliance of the Traveller” (‘Umdat al-Salik), which includes a chapter called “The Ahl al-Dhimma.” The basis of The Pact of Umar is Muslim supremacism over the populations of non-Muslim “People of the Book” (the dhimma) whom they had defeated in battle. According to the Pact, the lives and property of vanquished peoples were forfeit by reason of their defeat—but their Muslim overlords would refrain from exacting the penalty of death, nor would they be required (as the pagans were) to convert to Islam, as long as they kept the terms of surrender laid out for them in the Pact.

    The rules are very specific and include stipulations that new churches, monasteries, and synagogues may not be built and existing ones may not be repaired. Bells may not be rung, the Jewish shofar may not be sounded, and prayers and singing must not be heard by Muslims. Specifics about clothing, shoes, and hair style were enforced to mark non-Muslims with a distinctive look. This is where the yellow star for Jews came from. Dhimmis were not permitted to ride a noble animal like a horse, but only a donkey. They were barred from owning weapons. It is forbidden to offer them the Muslim greeting of peace. Dhimmis were forbidden to read, or study, or teach their children the Qur’an.

    So, when today’s Egyptian Copts, even with a government permit, make repairs to their churches and Muslims respond with violent fury, they are acting according to Islamic law and the Pact of Umar. Under Islamic law, repairing a dilapidated or damaged church is viewed by Muslims as a flagrant provocation that violates the ordained second-class status of dhimmis in a Muslim-dominated society like Egypt’s. Such provocation, according to the fiery sermons preached in the mosques, automatically revokes the Christians’ right to exist in a Muslim land and gives Muslims the right to “uphold their honor” by attacking the churches and killing the “offending” Christians. According to the Pact of Umar, the pledge of “protection” (from lethal attack by Muslims) is broken. This is why the Egyptian police either stand by and do nothing while Muslims assault Copts and their churches or actually participate in the killing, as they did in early October 2011.

    And so Egypt’s churches are disappearing, one by one. Egypt’s Christians are fleeing the country by the tens of thousands. The Jews were evicted a long time ago. And it’s all legal—under shariah.

    • Lucky bin Wanker, you quoted : “Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly”.

      That IS correct….ALL Muslims believe that…every word of the Quran is ETERNAL. You are so profoundly correct!!! Where did a hoodlum like you –who had failed in the kindergarten… even reciting Jack and Jill…get that from, coccydynia??

      Many Christians believe that “Jesus” was the Perfect person…though he NEVER lived in real life…yet they don’t follow him, why? Jesus of the Bible never ate pork, never married, never murdered, never smoked, never molested children, never raped women, never did same sex marriage, never did homoship,…etc……yet Christians do that as army like IRA doesn’t fall in the category of “terrorists”. What about maximum prostitution in the Western world? What about the drug consumption?

      Yet they beheaded Saul bin Paul the Liar and never came to the assistance of Jesus when he was yelling at the top of his voice….Oh daddy, daddy, why do you abandon your own baby????

      Hindus believe in Rama as the Perfect being. Sikhs believe in Gurus as the perfect persons, etc.

      What is wrong in Muslims believing in the Quran as the Eternal Word of Allah and the Ideal personality of Muhammad as based from the Quran???

      Muhammad is praised in the Quran and so do Muslims pray for him because of the Quran. So, what is your problem, poleslaw??

      • MOHAMMED & HIS COMPANIONS USE OF VULGAR LANGUAGE

        SURAT AL-BAQARAH (The Cow) – سورة البقرة
        2:256

        Sahih International
        There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
        2:257

        Sahih International
        Allah is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve – their allies are Taghut. They take them out of the light into darknesses. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.

        It is central in Islamic teachings to believe that Mohammed is the most perfect man Allah has ever created. He is even superior to Allah’s other creations like the angels. In short, Mohammed is the best of all the creations of Allah, who described his manners as ‘great’ as we understand from this verse ‘
        Quran.68: 4 And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character’.
        In sura Al najm, the Quran explains why Mohammed had such a great character- because Allah inspired him.
        Read sura al najm:
        Quran.53: 3. Nor does he say of his own desire.
        Quran.53: 4. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him.

        Mohammed himself explained why he was such a great man with such great qualities in his hadith ‘Allah brought me up to the good manners and He did so well’. Therefore it is no surprise that the Quran wants mankind to follow the example of Mohammed:

        Quran.33: 21. Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct.
        Muslims do not only believe that Mohammed had better manners than any other human before or after him, but they also believe that Mohammed is one of the most expressive and eloquent of his time. Even some Muslims tend to associate miracles to his sayings in the same way they associated miracles to the Quran, although the majority of Muslims relate the miracles to the meaning of his sayings (ahadith) rather than its language style.

        A careful reading of Islamic history, written by Muslim historians with inevitable bias towards Islam and its founder, Mohammed, reveals some amazing findings. Mohammed and his Companions were not people with high integrity, as Muslim scholars want us to believe. In this article, we will focus on the language style used by Mohammed, the most eloquent, best expressive, and the best mannered human created by Allah, as Muslims want us to believe.

        MOHAMMED

        The following hadith is reported by both Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sunan Abu Dawud. It is certified as sahih (authentic) and refers to the story of a Muslim man called Ma’ez who came to Mohammed filled with guilt and admitting adultery:

        When Maez came to the prophet pbuh, he (the prophet) asked him ‘ perhaps you kissed or touched or looked at her, he (Ma’ez) said ‘no, messenger of Allah’. He (the prophet) said ‘ aniktaha? (Did you fuck her) and used no other word, he (Ma’ez) said yes, he (the prophet) said until that from you disappeared inside that from her? He (Ma’ez) said yes, and then he ordered him to be stoned (to death).
        Source: Bukhari, number 6324( in the Arabic book)

        When I read the word ‘aniktaha’ I did not believe my eyes, how could Mohammed say something as rude as that? Al Bukhari must be a very brave imam to include it in his book. The word is an extremely vulgar word in the Arabic language and you will never find it written in any Arabic book or paper, and you will never hear it in any Arabic language radio or TV; it is just too rude!

        How come that a man who is believed to be the most eloquent, the best expressive Arab of his time could use such a rude and vulgar language? Did he run out of words? Here, in this hadith, Mohammed, claimed to be inspired by Allah (Quran.53: 4) caught red-handed using an offensive language suitable only for people with bad manners.

        If you ask ordinary Muslims about the above hadith, the chances are they will admit they never heard it before. But when you ask Muslim scholars for an explanation, they will try hard to justify it on the basis that the word was not considered so rude at the time. Nevertheless, we know aniktaha has always been a very rude word to the Arabs. In fact, the emphasis by the narrator of the above hadith that Mohammed ‘used no other word’ is in itself an indication that the narrator was aware of the obscenity of the word, and the possible disbelief of the readers. The absence of the word from all decent Arabic literature or poetry is another indication of the rudeness of the word.

        Other Muslim scholars claim that Mohammed deliberately used the word to make sure the man knew what he was talking about, because a decision of life and death would have to be taken. I find this a laughable explanation because Mohammed did not insist on such clarity in other similar circumstances where decisions of stoning were made. According to the above hadith, even after pronouncing the offending word, Mohammed continued to demand more elaboration on the sexual act by asking ‘until that from you disappeared inside that from her’. Ma’ez was a man full with guilt that he couldn’t keep in his chest; he turned to his moral leader to make his confession. He is obviously a man in desperate need for help and support. Mohammed exploited the man’s weakness and despair by asking him to elaborate more on his sexual experience. All the help Ma’ez received from Mohammed was mental torture then cruel slow death by stoning.

        MOHAMMED’S COMPANIONS

        The highly revered companions of Mohammed, known as sahaba, are generally believed to be the best Muslims after Mohammed. Ten of those sahaba were given a guarantee by Mohammed that they would go to paradise. The fact that some of those sahaba actually killed each other in the power struggles that followed Mohammed’s death does not ring alarm bills in Muslims’ minds. We also have historical evidence that those sahaba also used vulgar language in the presence and absence of Mohammed, who never reprimanded them for their uncouth behavior. Let us read the following from the books of sira (Mohammed’s history) and other books of Islamic history:

        Abu-Bakr was Mohammed’s closest friend; later he became the first Caliph of Islam. The following incident took place when Mohammed was massing an army outside Mecca in preparation to conquer the city. Urwa Ibn Masoud, who was one of the chiefs of Quraysh (Mohammed’s tribe) , went to meet Mohammed outside Mecca to dissuade him from attacking the city and his own tribe. Urwa gave a talk to remind Mohammed that he (Mohammed) is, after all, belongs to Quraysh while the people around him may sometime desert him. Abu Bakr heard that but did not like it, he said to Urwa:

        “We desert him? Go and suck the clitoris of the Al-Lat (the goddess of Quraysh)”.

        Sources: The Sira Alnabawya by Ibn Hisham, Almaghazi by AlWakidi and Altabari.
        Uthman Ibn Affan, the third Caliph, once said to Ammar Ibn Yasser

        “You the one who bites the penis of his father”

        Sources: Ansab Al-Ashraf by Al Balathri, Attabakat Alkubra by Ibn S’ad

        Ibn Masoud heard a man looking for something in the mosque, he shouted at him using obscene words, another man blamed Ibn Masoud for saying such words, Ibn Masoud answered: we were ordered (by Mohammed) to do so!
        Source: Reported by Al Albani from Sahih Ibn Khuzayma

        A man called Ajrad Al Tamimi had a dispute with Ubayy Ibn Ka’ab, Ajrad said (with pride)
        “O the tribe of Tamim’, Ubayy answered him may Allah make you bite the penis of your father. People said to Ubayy ‘ we did not know you are rude’ he said ‘the prophet pbuh ordered us to say that, and no other words, to people who behave like Jahilia behavior”

        Reported by Ibn Asaker in History of Damascus.

        The use of vulgar language by Mohammed and his companions is hardly surprising to anyone who knows the truth of Mohammed and Islam. After all, they were corrupted men in every aspect of their lives. But the news can be shocking to those Muslims who were brought up to believe that Mohammed is a holy personality. Considering the level of censorship that was practiced by early Muslims to polish the image of Islam and tarnish the image of anything that is not Islamic, it is astonishing how much has reached us to tell the truth.

        « Wa’alaykum Salaam, Love

        Beware the Fire »
        Wa’Mutasima!
        March 10, 2014 By Rabia Chaudry

        A couple of years ago, while discussing the Arab spring uprisings and their implications, a good friend commented to me, “Isn’t it interesting that all these men are risking their lives protesting for their rights and dignity, the same rights and dignity they often withhold from their own women?” It was an astute observation about the broad dynamic between Muslim men and women today in many countries across the world.

        That comment has stuck with me since. It brings to my mind the story of the Muslim woman, held captive and humiliated by the Romans, who cried out “Wa Mu’tasima!”, calling the name of the Muslim king thousands of miles away. Her captors laughed at her, asking her why she was calling out to the king – did she think he would mount a black and white horse and come defend her from so far away? News of her cry reached Al Mu’tasima, and he did indeed mount a black and white horse, gathered his army and declared the famous line,“When the first person of my army reaches the land of the Romans, the last of my army will have left here (the Muslim barracks)”. With an entire army of soldiers on black and white horses, he reached the area where the woman was held and freed her, acknowledging that he had come in response to her cry.

        Those days are long over. Fast forward many centuries and here we are, a time and place when Muslim women fight for their honor on all fronts. Against anti-Muslim bigots who strip her of agency, secular feminists who demean her choices, and Muslims themselves who marginalize, abuse, and mock her. The past few days we hit a new low, when a prominent UK scholar attached to the Islamic education institute Al Maghrib issued a series of tweets and Facebook posts ridiculing International Women’s Day, making crude “jokes” about women in general, and then backing up his statements with such gems as this:

        ABU EESA SHAHEENA SALAHUDDIN AZAD: you’re right, I apologize.
        I don’t understand women and tell the guys not to bother either, and we make jokes about them too.
        The aforementioned two crimes power my thirst and desire to rape women, beat them black and blue, harass them, abuse them, lock them in the boiler room at home and in the Masjid, belittle their hijab and nijab and tell everyone to mutilate their girl’s private parts and then marry them off whilst they’re still at Nursery.
        Right. Got it
        Lads, feel free to do all of the above. I give you the fatwa to do it dammit!

        Of course, the aftermath has not been pretty. Hundreds have responded on both his Twitter account and Facebook page and the social media sphere has been buzzing all day with the drama. In response to his crass misogyny, Hind Makki launched the #Muslimmaleallies hashtag, calling attention to the wonderful Muslim men who support, love, and respect women. I launched #FireAbuEesa because it’s beyond my comprehension why Al Maghrib still remains silent and why Abu Eesa* is a part of their teaching staff.
        Ordinarily finding a Muslim male misogynist in the social media universe is really par for the course. Heck, finding male misogynists of all backgrounds online is no stretch. But this is not any old person. This is a man (self identified as an “Imam, Scholar, Writer, Alpha-Male, Comedian, Superstar…”) who has over 19,000 followers on Twitter, over 40,000 followers on Facebook, teaches Islam for a major Muslim organization, and is a prolific public figure.

        His almost ridiculous defense, that he’s a comedian and he’s joking, was unraveled by his own hand when he ranted in a deeply hateful way:

        In the same very long post trying to justify his obnoxious comments, he goes on to compare International Women’s Day (“IWD”) to Black History Month and Mothers Day, trying to make the argument he doesn’t believe in paying lip service to token holidays. Except that’s not the truth. He doesn’t believe International Women’s Day should be every day (like maybe he does with Mother’s Day), he thinks its a feminist plot to…well, I’m not sure to do what, maybe bring attention to the contribution of women and the suffering of women globally, which apparently is intolerable to him.

        Now, I’m not purporting that everyone should be on board with a campaign like IWD, though why anyone would object is beyond me. What I find inexcusable about this series of public excretions (yeah I said it) is that they come from a “scholar” of Islam. A scholar who should be well acquainted with the verse: “O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule another people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule other women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames.” (Quran 49:11). A scholar who should be spending his time in better ways than planning up a series of offensive tweets over a weekend. A scholar who should be able to comprehend the effect of his words on his followers.

        Not only were hundreds of Muslim women hurt and offended, Abu Eesa opened the door for a world of ugliness from some of his male followers, who saw that bashing women publicly was just fine. If a “scholar” can do it, why not?

        My day was ruined not by his juvenile tweets and old, lame jokes (women too hard to understand? oooh hahahah, it’s actually because you’re an idiot). It was ruined when I read, and re-read, his pseudo fatwa to rape and beat women, FGM, child marriage, and a host of other oppressions that Muslim women do in fact suffer every single day in this world. We’re not daft, it was widely understood to be a sarcastic remark. But as someone who has lived through an abusive marriage, his words alone brought back black and blue memories and tears. As the mother of of two young girls, it brought more tears because I thought of them and the fight they would inherit from us, a fight for simple dignity and decency from Muslim men as the norm. I wonder if they’ll be able to hold on to the deen in the face of external and internal challenges, because not everyone is strong enough in their faith to reject the ugliness of some of our leaders. Muslims are apostatizing, rejecting a religion that is made to seem harsh, hateful, misogynistic, angry, and judgemental by people like Abu Eesa. Instead of using gentle speech and beautiful language to draw people to Islam, “scholars” like these burn bridges to faith.

        I would ask Al Maghrib to deeply consider who they want representing their institution. I understand that there will always be highly conservative factions among Muslims who will believe that women are inherently crooked like the rib they were made from, or conniving like the women who surrounded Yusuf (AS), or deficient in intellect because the Quran demands two female witnesses in place of one male witness in certain situations. I’ve met these people, I know them. Yet, I have never seen such a spectacle made of personally held misogynistic beliefs by a Western “scholar”. I can only imagine what Abu Eesa would think of the injunctions “the best among you is he who is best to his wives” or “do treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers” if they weren’t given by the Prophet himself (saw). Al Maghrib, and the rest of us, should expect better manners, kinder opinions, and loftier output from it’s teachers than what Abu Eesa delivers. Someone should also tell the brother that being funny does not have to be at anyone’s expense. Imam Suhaib Webb is funny and irreverent but doesn’t insult and mock others.** It’s possible to actually be a superstar and not be a jerk.

        Yesterday I was busy being one of the “feminists” Abu Eesa hoped would be burning and writhing at his words. I was angry, no doubt. But I was also busy like most feminists are – dropping off one daughter to school, driving 60 miles round-trip for work, taking care of legal clients, toting my little one around because she stayed home from school, quickly visiting my elderly father, picking up the older one from school after work, running home to cook dinner, feeding the family and putting away the dishes, bathing and dressing my younger daughter, reviewing Islamic history for my older daughter’s test, responding to work emails, tweets, Facebook posts, getting my salaahs done, writing this piece, generally helping the world go around, and ironically preparing to give a presentation on Islam at the Department of Transportation today.
        And like many other presentations, today I also expect questions about the status of women in Islam, about why we are treated badly, about why we are oppressed by our men. With every presentation it gets harder to stick to the script, harder to force attention to the Quran and Sunnah, to the gentility of the Prophet (saw) when the truth is millions of Abu Eesa’s are out there and find it funny to demean us, mock us, and belittle our struggles. I ask only that institutions like Al Maghrib not give support and cover to such people.
        *Normally I would respectfully refer to such a teacher as Shaykh but in this case the deference is not deserved.
        **Alhamdulillah for the rahma of American Muslim scholars. What is in the water in the UK?

        SURAT AL-BAQARAH (The Cow) – سورة البقرة
        2:256
        Sahih International
        There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
        2:257
        Sahih International

        THE LIGHT OF ISLAM IS DARKNESS:

        Allah is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve – their allies are Taghut. They take them out of the light into darknesses. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.
        Strictly, the topic of treatment of women in Islam, in itself, is massive. Please read other essays on this issue. Many such callous treatments are based upon superstitions, archaic, and barbaric traditions. They are nothing but ‘voodoos’ in a modern society.
        In Islam, a woman is truly problematic. From the moment of her birth until her death she endures much more Islamic tyranny than a male Muslim. All these Islamic torment are inflicted on her just because of her sex and biology. When we pursue this episode, we will understand why the Islamists encapsulate a woman with so much of ‘voddoo’ burden, and why it is just impossible to reform Islam, vis-à-vis women.

        ALLAH HATES MENSTRUATION

        Monthly period of a woman is the basis of survival of human species. This natural phenomenon is prevalent in all mammals. There is nothing impure, ugly, reprehensible, or sinful in this biological cycle of a woman. We must respect, show understanding, and provide all assistance and care so that a woman passes this period with ease, comfort, and hassle free.
        Unfortunately, in many religions this monthly period of a woman is treated as a disease, unholy, and impure. Islam is no exception on this. It appears that Allah Himself has a great dislike for the menstruation cycle of a woman, even when He Himself had designed this biological process, for the survival of His creation.
        In verse 2:222 of the Qur’an Allah has declared menstruation as a disease, and has instructed men not to indulge in sex during this sickness of women. Embarrassed, many Islamists often twist the wordings and insist that this verse actually shows utmost respect for women’s period. This explanation by the crafty Islamists is just a fib. For the truth of Allah’s hatred for women’s period we must turn to hadis.
        Sahih Bukhari
        (3.31.172) says that menstruation is a defect in women, for they cannot fast
        and pray during their periods. Allah has more hatred for women who have
        prolonged and heavy flow during her period. In Sunaan Abu Dawud
        (1.1.0287) we read that excessive blood-flow during a woman’s period is from
        Satan. To illustrate the damaging effect of women’s menstruation, ibn Sad
        (p.1.22) writes that the menstruating women and unclean people touched the white stone (of Kaba), so it turned black.
        Surprisingly,
        Benjamin Walker (p.47) writes that Kaba means female pudenda. In fact, the
        Black Stone is shaped like a vulva, while the shrine itself is set in an ovoid
        space. In a hadis in Sunaan ibn Majah (1.595, 596) Muhammad said that
        a sexually defiled man and a menstruating woman cannot recite the Qur’an.
        Since Allah has declared menstruation a disease, defilement, here are a few Islamic methods to cleanse a woman when she is menstruating:
        After menstruation clean the private parts and apply musk (fragrance) there… (Sahih Muslim, 3.0647)
        Put a dish under a menstruating woman’s vulva while she is in prayer… (Sahih Bukhari, 1.6.306)
        Use saliva and nails to rub off bloodstains from period… (Sahih Bukhari, 1.6.309)
        Wash period blood with jujube leaves… Sunaan Nasai, 1.295)
        Period blood, clean with musk… (Sunaan Nasai,1.429)
        Besides hating women’s menstruation, Allah insults them further in verse 2:223. In this verse, Allah considers women’s vagina as a sowing field, like a machine to produce babies. He says (in verse 2:223) that wives are tilths, sow in them in whatever manner you like. Ibn Abbas says that this verse means the vulvas of your wives are plantations for your offspring, and Jalalyn explains that it is the place where you sow [the seeds of] your children.

        ISLAMIC PENALTY FOR HAVING SEX WITH A MENSTRUATING WOMAN

        If, by mistake, or by chance, a man has intercourse with his wife during her period, Islam prescribes financial penalty to expiate this infraction (i.e., violating verse 2:222).
        There are a number of ahadith on this peculiar Islamic punitive measure. Here are a few samples:
        If you have sexual intercourse with your wife while she is menstruating then you must give one Dinar or half a Dinar in alms… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0264)
        Perform sexual intercourse during the start of menstruation, pay one Dinar; towards the end of menstruation—pay half a Dinar… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.1.0265)
        Do sexual intercourse during a woman’s period, donate one Dinar or half-a-Dinar… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 1.640, 650)
        Do sex with a menstruating woman, pay a fine of one Dinar… (Sunaan Nasai, 1.292)
        The above ahadith demonstrate the legal force of Islamic Voodoos.

        ISLAMIC WOMEN EJACULATE SPERM

        In Islam, it is believed that during her orgasm, a woman ejaculates sperm, just as a man does. A few ahadith even suggest that as a man has nocturnal emission or wet dreams, a woman too discharges her sperm during her sexual dreams. Here are a few ahadith to marvel at Allah’s incredible biology.
        When a woman ejaculates sperm, she should take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.198, 199)
        If a woman has nocturnal discharge, she should take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.197)
        When a woman has wet dreams, she should take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.200)
        Men’s sperm is white; women’s sperm is yellow…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.202)
        Women has discharges during wet dreams, that is why the son resembles the mother…(Sahih Bukhari, 1.3.132)

        ALLAH DISLIKES WOMEN: HE HAS MADE WOMEN CROOKED

        In the Qur’an Allah expresses His dislike for females. In verse 43:18 we read that the weak personality of females cannot be associated with Allah; Allah does not like daughters (women). Undeniably, in this verse, Allah openly disparages women. We might think that may be we are missing something good in this verse,
        may be Allah cannot be that hateful to women, who He had created from Adam’s
        rib.
        To clarify that Allah does indeed dislike women, here is what ibn Kathir writes about this verse:
        Women are regarded as lacking something, which they make up for with jewellery and adornments from the time of childhood onwards, and when there is a dispute, they cannot speak up and defend themselves clearly, so how can this be attributed to Allah?

        In ahadith we read the reasons why Allah considers women crooked and reprehensible.
        Sahih Bukhari (7.62.114) writes that Allah created women from Adam’s rib; that is why she is crooked. Sahih Muslim (8.3466) writes that a woman is like a rib, if you straighten it you will break it and if you leave her alone you will benefit by her; her crookedness will remain in her. In another hadis in Sahih Muslim (8.3467) we read that Allah created women crooked: if you try to straighten her you will break her and breaking her is divorcing her.
        Imam Ghazali exposes more of Allah’s displeasure for women. He writes (Ghazali, p.2.41) that daughters are such burdensome that a man will go to paradise for having the burden of one or two or three daughters. This should not surprise us considering the truth that in many Islamic paradises ‘honour’ killing of women is not considered a serious crime. In Islam, women’s lives are indeed very cheap—Allah has rendered a woman nothing more than mere chattels in the hands of either her father, or her husband, or her son, or her brother, or her grandson, or her legal guardian. In Islam, it is compulsory that a woman must be always under the guardianship of a male or her Wali.

        In Islam, a woman is viewed merely as a repository of sexual organs. Here is what Ghazali (p.2.43), the greatest of all Islamic scholars writes about women. Ghazali quotes Ali, Muhammad’s cousin and son in law:
        A woman has ten private parts. When she gets married, her husband covers one private part; when she dies the grave covers other nine private parts.
        Allah’s hate for a barren woman has no bound. Ghazali (p.2.24) writes that Muhammad said:
        A prison in the corner of a house is better than a childless woman.
        Ghazali (ibid) writes further that an ugly woman with children is better than a beautiful woman without children.

        WOMEN, DOGS, DONKEYS & PIGS ANNUL AN ISLAMIC PRAYER

        Please read the following ahadith to measure the Islamic Status of a woman:
        A woman, an ass and a dog disrupts the prayer; if you use the back of a saddle
        then that will guard against the disruption of the prayer… (Sahih Muslim, 4.1034)
        A passing woman, a dog, and a monkey annul a prayer. Aisha complained that
        Muhammad’s companions had made women dogs… (Sahih Bukhari, 1.9.490, 493,498)
        A menstruating woman and a dog cuts off a prayer…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 2.0703)
        A black dog is Satan; or a donkey or a woman cancels a prayer…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 2.952)
        An ass, a woman, and a black dog annuls a prayer…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.753)
        I quoted from the five of Sahih Sitta (the authentic six) ahadith to demonstrate the importance of this hadis.

        kemalettin • 3 days ago
        The geniune, intense relationship, love, and affection between men and women do not arise only from the needs of worldly life. Yes, a woman is a companion to her husband not only in this worldly life, she is his companion in eternal life too. Since she will be her husband’s companion in eternal life, she surely should not attract the looks of others besides her husband, her everlasting friend and companion, and should not offend him and make him jealous. In consequence of the mystery of belief, her believing husband’s relations with her are not confined to this worldly life and his love is not only animal and temporary, so long as her beauty lasts; he holds true, earnest love and respect for her because she will be his companion in eternal life. And he bears that love and respect for her, not only during her youth when she is beautiful, but also when she is old and unsightly. Certainly in return for this, she should show her beauties to him alone and restrict her love to him; this is demanded by humanity. Otherwise she would gain very little and lose much.
        According to the Shari‘a, the husband should be a good match for the wife. That is, they should be suitable to one another. The most important aspect of this is with a view to religion.
        Happy the husband who sees the wife’s firm religion and follows her, and
        himself becomes pious in order not to lose his companion of eternal life.
        Happy the wife who sees her husband’s firmness in religion and becomes pious so as not to lose her eternal friend.
        Alas for the man who becomes dissolute, which will lose him for ever that
        righteous woman.
        Alas for the woman who does not follow her pious husband and loses her eternal blessed friend.
        And a thousand woes on the unhappy husband and wife who imitate each other in
        sin and vice, helping one another to enter Hell-fire!

        THIRD INSTANCE OF WISDOM
        Happy family life is perpetuated through mutual confidence between husband and wife, and heartfelt respect and love. Immodest dress and free-and-easy behaviour destroy the confidence, and spoil the mutual respect and love. For out of ten women who favour immodest dress only one will not try to make herself liked by strangers because she does not find other men more attractive than her husband. Nine will find others better than their husbands. And only one out of twenty men will not find other women more attractive. Then besides the true love and mutual respect disappearing, it may arouse extremely ugly and base feelings, as follows:

        We are not doing alright in the UK at all, we don’t seem to be doing ok worldwide when it comes to women’s issues. Thank you so much for writing so beautifully and so honestly about these issues. It gives me hope. I too was abused in my two marriages with Muslim men and it has left me with lifelong consequences, not to mention the effects upon my children. I can’t go to the old mosque I used to attend even now without having panic attacks and becoming quite mentally unwell, so I avoid most muslims and have done for years. It’s only been in the past 6 months that I have met a better class of sister on facebook and I’m planning to wear hijab and try again insha Allah. Every time I tried before there was always some obnoxious person that put me off. It’s the lack of support towards sisters that’s just as bad as the abuse itself. Brothers using Islam to justify their cruelty and stop sisters from speaking out and getting help. Shut up we are told in no uncertain terms. Stop causing fitna. As if we were the ones who beat and abused ourselves. As for the hatred towards feminists – yes, I am a feminist, and proud – that is a part of me , its in my heart and soul that I want to fight and write about these issues. How does that take me out of the fold of Islam? As for those that criticize feminist sisters for not speaking up about other abuses of women worldwide, 3 points: First, the sister is right. Brothers are getting fired up about the abuse of women in places such as Syria but don’t say a word about the abuse that’s happening all around them. Second, it is feminist groups that draw attention to these issues, that put them in the news, just because I am concerned about my own situation – you don’t know how involved I am or how concerned I am about my sisters abroad. Thirdly, abuse starts with words. it starts with a mind set. This is a post of mine from tonight on an FB site against domestic violence. I hope you don’t mind me copying it. But may I also say that the brother in question made some very racist remarks and no one is saying a thing about that.

        Nour Domestic-Violence

        Why do you think domestic violence is so common in our society?
        I think it starts with language. The language we allow in society that promotes misogyny and tyrannical patriarchy. Words that are used against women that denigrate us to second class citizenship. Jokes that are made and left unchallenged. Points of view by powerful people – left unchallenged as nobody wants to be ‘that woman’. It starts with a way of thinking about women. How we are shown in the …media, in magazines, in porn. The way that our religious scholars sanction abuse, even if just by their silence. By telling feminists or women with opinions that we are against Islam, by cutting off our access to the scholars and limiting our knowledge of our own faith. By slandering the women that run away, get away, no one helps them, all that is said is; ‘She took her hijab off, she left her deen, she went to kuffar for help…’ and; ‘she deserves what she got’, when the woman is murdered.

        Good article except for the part you describe men who view and treat women as inferior as “conservatives”. They are not. They are misguided. Also, this should be a lesson that Muslims should seek knowledge from proper Islamic institutions like Al Azhar and so on. Who the heck these people are? Every Tom, Dick and Harry is a “sheikh” or “scholar” these days! Really? I think he is an imposter deliberately planted amongst youngsters to misguide and divide just like Choudary, Omer Bakri and the rest.

        THE PERFECT EXAMPLE FOR MANKIND
        THE PERFECT MUSLIM
        And surely thou hast sublime morals
        (Surat Al-Qalam 68:4).
        Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar
        (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:21).
        Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws ofgod to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly.

        MUHAMMAD WOULD THIGH WITH BABY AISHA
        HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH

        Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia,
        the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).
        Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.
        According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age.
        However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.
        Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he
        ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and
        emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?
        Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile
        would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.
        Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her.
        Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).
        The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the
        children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the
        thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’
        After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send.
        As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his
        fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.
        That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers'” (Fatwa No. 31409).
        Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

        AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES
        From the Hadith of Bukhari:
        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).
        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:
        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:
        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        Astaghfirullah! You obviously have no fear of Allah if you can talk like this. I can only pray that Allah guides you for your speech can be a means of destruction for you.

        My comment is no different than men joking about raping women. I knew it would cause outrage – just as joking about rape does. Funny how men don’t like the taste of their own medicine. It’s ok to joke about rape but not for me to mention castration? You are a hypocrite. Allah / God is ashamed of any man who treats women with such disrespect, hatred, violence, and evilness. Any man who is violent against women and girls – especially rapists, and those who condone it and joke about, all deserve the most severe punishment possible. Men who committ rape, condone it, or joke about it are doing the devil’s work, not the work of God – they are demons. Rape is the worst crime and crisis on this planet and needs to be eradicated by any means necessary.

        ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE
        “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24
        You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like).
        Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4:
        “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

        WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS
        Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior:
        “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223]
        Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex.
        According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine,
        which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls.

        Promising KissesXx Karen Bradley Ehler • 5 days ago
        He didn’t joke about rape. Honestly, the response that he gave regarding rape was a sarcastic response, calling out the twisted logic and conclusion that the other person had thrown at him, claiming that he had a “thirst and desire to rape and beat women, etc etc.” Of course he could have worded his response differently, but in no way whatsoever did he joke about rape or abusing women. This is simply a slander against him that most of his critics are using against him. Yes, his jokes on IWD were wrong but we need to address that. We need to stay truthful and not use the false slanders against him to prove our point. Of course, I am not attacking you in any way, I am merely clearing the fog about this inshaAllah 🙂

        RAPE JIHAD:
        Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage
        Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.
        Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
        So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?
        So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

        REMEMBER:
        ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD
        ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE

        Al-’Azl
        Al-’Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the
        practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-’Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.
        Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .

        Sahih Bukhari
        7:62:135
        Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us
        while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.

        Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136

        Although i may not be a fan of such jokes, I absolutely agree with the Shaykh regarding the modernist feminist movement which has hijacked many sisters and their brains! We have enough in the Qur’an and Sunnah to monitor, regulate and improve the condition of our sisters and to treat them well. We don’t need foreign un-islamic secular concepts for any issue, including women rights.

        WOMEN ARE STUPID: SATAN CONTROLS WOMEN
        In Islam, a woman is an extension of Satan or devil. This might sound unbelievable to those who are accustomed to the secular (or non religious) treatment of women in un Islamic countries. There are plenty authentic Islamic sources where women are truly considered as devils. Let us consult a few such Islamic scriptures.
        In Sahih Muslim (8.3240, 3242) and in Sunaan Abu Dawud (2.11.2146) we read that a woman advances and retires in the shape of a devil; so when one sees a woman, he should come to his wife and have intercourse with her. Truly, Muhammad did the same. Once after watching a beautiful and sexy woman, Muhammad hurried to have sex with Zaynab bt. Jahsh. Imam Ghazali (p.2.26) confirms this hadis by repeating the story. Another hadis in Tirmidhi (927) writes that after watching a charming woman Muhammad hurried to have sex with Sawda, another of his wives; then he said, ‘Your wife is the same kind of thing as the other woman.’
        Ghazali (p.2.26) explains the devilish nature of woman in this manner:
        If you see a woman in front (sic) she is a devil. After seeing such a woman, hurry to your wife because your wife also becomes a devil; have sex with your wife.
        Ghazali upholds the misogyny nature of Islam. He writes (ibid, p.2.43) that a woman is like a private part. When she comes out of her house the devil holds her high. Ghazali (p.3.87) even quotes Muhammad, ”A woman is the string of the devil.”
        A hadis in Sunaan ibn Majah (5.4003) tells unambiguously that women are stupid; they lack intelligence, no matter how educated and scholarly she might be (remember, Ms. Banazir Bhutto is a Harvard and Oxford
        graduate). According to Islamic Sharia, a woman cannot be a judge, and she can never be a caliph or the head of an Islamic Paradise. In case we are thinking of Indonesia, Bangladesh, or Pakistan, please know that these countries are not real Islamic. Most Islamists will tell us that so far, there has never been a perfect Islamic country, since Muhammad had established such a paradise in Medina.
        Let us consult the following hadis to ascertain why in a perfect Islamic society a woman can never be the head of state.
        People ruled by a woman will never be successful (a jihadist who fought in the battle of the camel remembered this saying of Muhammad)…(Sahih Bukhari, 5.59.709)
        If a nation is ruled by a woman then that nation will not succeed…(Sahih Bukhari, 9.88.219)
        A woman, a slave, and an unbeliever is not fit to be a moral police…(Ghazali, p.3.87)
        Islam considers women truly evil. Numerous ahadith attest that as per Islam a woman is no better than a horse, a camel, a crow, or a house, because, in Islam, these objects are treated as signs of bad omen. Let us read the following messages of Islam:
        The evil omens are: the horse, the women and the house…(Sahih Bukhari, 4.52.110, 111)
        A house, a horse and a woman is an evil omen; a mat in a house is better than a barren woman…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.29.3911)
        If there is a bad luck in anything then it is horse, the abode and the
        woman…(Sahih Muslim, 26.5528, 5529)
        No good fortune in a woman, a horse and a house…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 3.1993)
        Seek refuge from a woman, a servant and cattle—they are evils…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 3.1918)
        Miserliness, pride, and cowardice are bad for men but good for women…(Ghazali, p.2.32)
        On the treatment of women in Islam here are a few more remarkable quotes from Ghazali:
        Muhammad said, “Fear unchaste women because she will make you old before you grow old”… (Ghazali, p.2.34)
        Women are like crows; only a religious woman is like a crow with white belly among one hundred crows…(Ghazali, p.2.34)
        In Islam, women are such despicable that a man should never shake hands with a woman who is not his wife. It seems, in Islam, a leper’s hand is purer than a woman’s hand. Reportedly, Muhammad had never touched the hands of a woman, except his wives. Here are a few ahadith on Muhammad’s great hatred for women who were not his wives.
        Muhammad never shook hands with a woman…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.2874)
        Muhammad never touched the hand of a woman except his wives…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.2875)

        MAJORITY OF WOMEN WILL BE IN ISLAMIC HELL

        Allah possesses so much hatred towards women that He has relegated most women to hell. Here are a few ahadith where Muhammad claimed that he saw that most of the inhabitants of hell are women.
        Majority in hell are women because they are ungrateful to their husbands… (Sahih Bukhari, 1.2.28)
        Majority of women are in hell because they are deficient in intelligence…
        (Sahih Bukhari, 1.6.301)
        Those women who are naked even in their dresses and lead their husbands to astray will go to hell…(Sahih Muslim, 24.5310)
        A naked woman tears down the curtain of Allah… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 5.3750)
        A woman should veil herself even from a blind man [note 3532, vol. iii, p.1147]… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.32.4100)

        ISLAM: THE CULT OF RETARDS

        • Lucky bin Liar, The BIGGEST CRIMES BY CHRISTIANS!

          The founder of the “salvation” Church, Saul bin PAUL the Liar, was finally BEHEADED by the Same Church that he had founded….and the Christians, NONE of them…EVER came to the RESCUE of Jesus, when he was being slaughtered and hung on a Mango Tree when he was yelling at the top of his voice….Oh DADDY, DADDY, why do you ABANDON your OWN baby?

          A. Around 65 AD, Paul was imprisoned in Rome, beheaded, and then buried OUTSIDE Rome!! Why this dude was beheaded NO Christian knows…the same Christians who cut his head off, like those fake videos on you tube, made up by anti-Islam sites!!

          Acts 5:30 (KJV)
          The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom YOU SLEW and HANGED on a TREE.

          So, let us analyse Acts 5:30 :

          1. “The God”. Which God? Islamic…Hindu?…Jews? and when did this Jew God become Christian God???
          2. “Our”. Who is that possessive “our”? Is it the Hindus? or Jews? or Christians??
          3. “Raised up”. How is a person “RAISED”?…and where is “UP”?
          4. “Raised up Jesus”. Couldn’t Jesus fly on his own? Wasn’t he “floating” around when Saul bin Paul the Liar “heard” him and saw or the disciples during the last meal! …a bright light during daytime or night time?…. was it moonbeam? …sunbeam? …and he became blind for 3 years because of light????
          5.” You SLEW”. Slay is to cut the throat with a knife then blood spills from the cut and “slew” is a past tense of that!!
          6. “Hanged on a Tree”. Hung on a mango tree? Like a slaughtered goat…hung from a tree…with the throat slit?

          So, Lucky the Catholic Taqiyya, what do you make of that Paul the Liar, YOU the LIAR???

          • SHIA’S VIEW OF MOHAMMED’S WIVES

            The Shia insult the wives of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.), even though the Quran refers to Prophet Muhammad’s wives as Mothers of the Believers.
            Let’s examine what the Shia’s books say:

            1. When Shia’s Imam Mahdi (the 12th Shia Imam) comes, he will bring Prophet Mohammad’s wife, Aisha, back to life, whip her as a punishment to avenge Prophet Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. (Al-Shafi, Vol. 2, p. 108), (Haq-ul-Yaqeen, p. 139 & 347) & (Hayat-ul-Quloob, Vol. 2, p. 901)

            2. Prophet Mohammad’s wives, Aisha and Hafsa, are accused of poisoning Prophet Mohammad. (Jila-ul-Ayoun, p. 118)

            3. Abu Bakr, Omar, Aisha & Hafsa poisoned Mohammad. (Quran Translation by Shia Scholar, Maqbool H. Dehlevi, Chap. 28, p. 894)

            4. Aisha is insulted and described negatively. (Hayat-ul-Quloob, Vol. No. 2, Page No. 879) & (Tohfa-e-Hanfia Dar Jawab Tohfa-e-Jaffria, p. 271 & p. 334)

            5. Aisha and Hafsa were hypocrite and infidel women. (Hayat-ul-Quloob, Vol. No. 2, p. 900)

            6. Aisha was a hypocrite. (Hayat-ul-Quloob, p. 867)

            7. Aisha was an infidel woman. (Hayat-ul-Quloob, Vol. No. 2, p. 726)

            8. Aisha is accused of committing adultery. (Quran Majeed by Maqbool Hussain Dehlevi, p. 840)

            9. An insult to Aisha and prophet Mohammad’s companion, Muawiyah. (Tohfa-e-Hanfia Dar Jawab Tohfa-e-Jaffria, p. 65)

            10. Prophet Mohammad’s wife, Hafsa, was an indecent woman. (Tohfa-e-Hanfia Dar Jawab Tohfa-e-Jaffria, p. 123)

            Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 713:
            Narrated Ibn Abbas:

            ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab used to let Ibn Abbas sit beside him, so ‘AbdurRahman bin ‘Auf said to ‘Umar, “We have sons similar to him.” ‘Umar replied, “(I respect him) because of his status that you know.” ‘Umar then asked Ibn ‘Abbas about the meaning of this Holy Verse:– “When comes the help of Allah and the conquest of Mecca . . .” (110.1)

            Ibn ‘Abbas replied, “That indicated the death of Allah’s Apostle which Allah informed him of.” ‘Umar said, “I do not understand of it except what you understand.”

            Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, “O ‘Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.”

            end quote.

            Okay, so Aisha is alleging here the Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa(SAWW) allegedly died from alleged poison he ate at the battle of Khaibar. This is impossible!!! The battle of Khaibar happened in around 6 AH or 7 AH (at the latest); that is in the “common era” 628 C.E. or 629 C.E. (at the latest). All the sources tell us the Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa(SAWW) died in 10 AH or 632 C.E. in the “common era”. So that means the Prophet(SAWW) lived for 3 to 4 years after the battle of Khaibar!!! Have you ever heard of someone allegedly eating poison in a food; and then allegedly living for another 3 or 4 years. ALSO CRITICALLY keep in mind there is no evidence that the Prophet(SAWW) was sick during this 3 or 4 year period, at the very minimum we’d expect to see signs of someone suffering throughout those 3 or 4 years with the effects of the poison! Obviously there was no poison presented over this 3 or 4 years, it was aisha bint abi bakr and hafsa bint umar who carried out the evil crime on the orders of their sinful fathers Abu Bakr and Umar ibn al-Khattab the homosexual drunkard.

            PROPHET MUHAMMAD WAS MURDERED

            Section : Articles || Date : 2010 / 06 / 17 || Reading : 16020

            This article is the transcription of a lecture delivered by His Eminence Shaykh Yasser Al-Habib, on “Who Killed Allah’s Messenger?”

            Even today the Muslims know very little of their Prophet’s history (Peace be upon him and his pure family). Therefore, they believe he died a natural death, but in fact, he had been assassinated. This fact should not come as a surprise to anyone, given the fact that the Holy Quran had predicted it clearly in Chapter Aal Imran as Allah the Almighty said:”And Muhammad is no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him; if then he died or is killed will you then turn back upon your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah; and Allah will reward the grateful.” (144:3).

            Let’s pay particular attention to this section: “if then he died or is killed”. It confirms that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) would not die a natural death. Rather, it confirms that he would be killed. The conjunctive (or) in this verse means “Rather”. In Arabic, sometimes (or) indicates uncertainty and probability. In other contexts, it imparts correction. Since it is next to impossible that anyone should suspect Allah’s word, since He has insight into the unknown, Allah must have intended to impart the other meaning. Accordingly, the meaning of the verse is: “If he died, rather, he is killed, you turn upon your heels.” By analogy, Allah said in Chapter Al Saffat, speaking of Prophet Yunis (Peace be upon him); “And We sent him to a hundred thousand, or they exceeded.” (37:147) That is, “And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded.”

            In Hadiths, even those reported by the Bakri sect, it is confirmed that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) was martyred. For example, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal, Al-Tabarani and Al-Sanaani among other famous scholars of the Bakri sect, reported Abdullah Ibn Massoud, a companion to Allah’s Prophet, saying: “I am willing to take an oath nine times that the Prophet was murdered, but I am not willing to take an oath even once that he was not. This is because Allah made him a Prophet and a martyr as well.”(Refer: Masnad Ahmed, Vol I, Page 408; Mojam Al-Tabrani, Vol X, Page 109; Musannaf Al-Sanaani, Vol V, Page 268).

            How then was the Prophet murdered, and who were the perpetrators of such a heinous crime? In fact, it is from this point that the paths of Shiites and the Bakri sect diverge. While Bakri sect claim that the Prophet was poisoned by the Jews, Shiites stress that he was poisoned by his two wives Ayesha and Hafsa, as commanded by their fathers Abu Bakr and Omar. Let us take a look at the evidences of each party to decide which one is true.

            Bakri sect says that when the Prophet’s army won the Kheibar battle defeating the army of the Jews, a Jewish woman, Zeinab Bint Al-Harith invited him and his companions to a banquet. That woman wanted to take revenge upon the Prophet because her brother Murhab Bin Al-Harith, who was commander of the Jewish Army, had been killed by Imam Ali (Peace be upon him) and this had led to the victory of the Muslim Army. The Jewish leaders used the woman’s desire to take revenge and goaded her into assassinating the Prophet. She poisoned the meat she cooked for the Prophet and his fellows. The Prophet died after having the poisoned meat.

            This is the belief of Bakri sect, but it can easily be refuted by the following scientific evidence:

            Firstly, the Khaibar Battle took place in the seventh year of Hegira. While the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) died in the eleventh year. This means that there is a time gap of four years between the two incidents. It is very unlikely that a person dies because of a poison he had taken so many years ago. It is also because generally the effect of poison is immediate and even if it takes time it cannot exceed a few months in which the health condition deteriorates gradually. In the case of the Prophet, we notice that he had been in the peak of his health and throughout the said four years he had no unusual health complaints. He would participate in the battles to defend Muslims as usual. Thus, it defies any logic that his health deteriorated suddenly and he died of a poison he had had taken more than four years ago despite the fact that he enjoyed good health throughout that intervening period.

            Secondly, if we accept that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) consumed that poisoned food, it will be a proof of his not being a true Prophet– May Allah forbid! This is because it was the Jews and the woman who wanted to put the Prophet under trial by means of their scheme. Is he truly a Prophet who gets revelation from Allah? If he was a Prophet, he would know that this food was poisoned and would not consume it. If not, he would consume it. Authentic Hadiths provide that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) knew it and did not consume the food. He admonished his retinue not to consume it either. This was one of his miracles due to which the Jewish woman was so impressed that she converted to Islam, for that she earned the Prophet’s forgiveness and exemption from punishment.

            Al-Bukhari and Al-Darami and other famous scholars of Bakri Sect relate that “When Muslims won the battle of Kheibar, the Jews invited the Prophet to a banquet in which they had served poisoned mutton. The Prophet ordered his followers to call up all the Jews to speak to them. When they were present, he asked them: “If I ask you something, will you answer me honestly?” “Yes”, they answered. “Have you put poison in this mutton?” he asked. “Yes”, they answered. “Why?” he wondered. “We wanted to know whether you are a true prophet or not” they answered. “If you are a true prophet, this would not hurt you. But, if you are not, we would get rid of you”. (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol IV, Page 66; Sunan Al-Darmi, Vol I, Page 33).

            Al-Khateb relates: “A Jewish woman cooked poisoned mutton and offered it to the Prophet and his retinue. The Prophet said to his retinue: “Do not consume this food. It is poisoned. He then asked the woman: “Why have you done this?”, to which question she answered, “So that I can tell whether you are a true or false prophet? If you are true, Allah will reveal you that this food is poisoned so you won’t consume it. But, if you were false, you would eat it and die. Thereby, I would relieve people of you.” (Refer: History of Baghdad, Vol VII, Page 384).

            Contrary to these Hadiths, there are other Hadiths that tell that the Prophet actually consumed some of that food. In the process, he admonished his followers to stop eating, and that one of them did really die. The Prophet ordered to have the woman killed. Obviously, these Hadiths are not authentic, and cannot be trusted. As we have already pointed out, this is because they mean that the Prophet was false, having discovered that the food was poisoned so late that one of his followers had already become a victim.
            It should be noted that Al-Baihiqi and Abu Dawood and other famous scholars of the Bakri Sect confirmed that the Prophet neither killed, nor punished Zeinab Bint Al-Harith. (Refer: Sunann Al-Baihiqi Vol VIII, Page 46; Sunan Abu Dawood , Vol II, Page 369).

            Al-Zohri, a great ancient scholar, confirmed that the Jewish woman was not killed although this was commonly believed by some people. Rather, she converted to Islam, and was forgiven by the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family). (Refer: Musannaf Al-Sanaani, Vol XI, Page 29, Prophet’s Biography by Ibn Kathier, Vol III, Page 389).

            Third: a most significant Hadith as maintained by the Bakri sect to ascribe Prophet’s sudden death to the poisoning attempt by the Jews four years ago, is one that was reported by Bukhari from Ayesha. She relates: “Allah’s Prophet told me on his death bed, ‘Ayesha, since I consumed that poisoned food after the Kheibar Battle, I have been in pain. Now it is the time for my heart to stop beating because of that poison.” (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol V, Page 137).

            We cannot trust that Hadith for many reasons: one of which is the fact that Ayesha is an infamous liar. She would lie even to the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family). Al-Bukhari reported Ayesha saying: “Allah’s Prophet was eating honey at Zeinab Bint Jahsh place. So Hafsa and I agreed to tell him, upon his return that he smelled of Maghafeer”. (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol 6, Page 68. Maghafeer is a substance extracted from a tree. It has a sweet taste but very foul smell.)

            Ayesha knew that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) had taken honey from his other wife, Zeinab Bint Jahsh. Being jealous of her, she agreed with her friend, Hafsa, to hurt the Prophet by claiming that he smelled foul when he consumed that honey. Thereby, he would stop eating it, and consequently stop visiting his wife, Zeinab.

            That was a lie. A woman, who would not abstain from lying to the noblest prophet, would not abstain from lying to ordinary people, either. Therefore, the Hadiths reported by her cannot be trusted, especially when she, herself, was accused of being involved in the murder of the Prophet. Naturally, she would try to divert suspicion by pointing fingers at others.

            Let us not forget that the Holy Quran stated that Ayesha and Hafsa were sinful wrongdoers whose hearts deviated from the true path. Allah warned them that by merely marrying the Prophet, they would not be exempted from going to hell. This was set forth in the Chapter Al Tahreem: “If you both turn to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined (to this); and if you back up each other against him, then surely Allah is his Guardian, and Jibreel and the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the helpers. (…) Allah sets forth an example to those who disbelieve the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut: they were both under two of our righteous servants, but they acted treacherously towards them so they availed them naught against Allah, and it was said: Enter both the fire with those who enter.” (66:10 &4)

            Two women who lie and receive harsh words from Allah in a full chapter would not abstain from lying. Undoubtedly, they were poised to commit any misdeed, even if it was the assassination of the Prophet himself.

            Let us not forget that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) had described Ayesha as “The spearhead of disbelief and the horn of Satan”. Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and other famous scholars of Bakri Sect related: “The Prophet, (Peace be upon him), emerged from Ayesha’s room saying this is the spearhead of disbelief! It is from here that Satan’s horn emerges”! (Refer: Masnad Ahmed, Vol II, Page 23).

            A woman condemned by Allah as wrongdoer, and threatened to be tortured in hell if she does not repent, and one described by the Prophet as the spearhead of disbelief and Satan’s horn; one who confesses to having lied to the Prophet is a woman whose Hadiths cannot be trusted, especially if they seem to be in her favour.

            One of the reasons why we should not believe in Ayesha’s Hadith about poisoning the Prophet is that she contradicts herself in another Hadith. She claimed that the Prophet did not die because of the Jewish woman’s poison. Rather, the cause of his death was because of another disease! According to Abu Yoalla, Ayesha also said that: “Allah’s Prophet, (Peace be upon him), died of an ailment Dhatul Janb”! (Refer: Masnad Abu Yoalla, Vol. VIII, Page 258. Dhadul Janb is an internal tumour that forms on man’s side. It leads to death when it explodes.)

            Ayesha claimed that, although the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) had ruled out the possibility of the Prophet developing such a tumour due to its being a demonic one that a Prophet would not develop. The Prophet said of that tumour: “It is Satanic, and I cannot develop it because Allah has delivered me from any of Satan’s powers”. (Refer: The Beginning and the End, Ibn Katheir, Vol. V, Page 245).

            It seems that Ayesha was confused while putting her point before the general public with regard to the issue of Prophet’s killing. When she claimed he died because of that Jewish woman’s poison consumed four years ago, people did not find that very plausible. Therefore, she came up with another cause of death. Therefore, she made up another reason, namely that of the lateral tumor. Thereby, she contradicted herself. This confusion itself points fingers at her and even gives rise to suspicions about her.
            Now that we are sure of the implausibility of the Bakri version of the Prophet’s murder (Peace be upon him and his pure family) due to the shortcomings, contradictions and poor evidence. Now, we can move on to the Shiite version.

            Generally, Shiite Hadiths are more credible. They are a set of the statements by the Imams from the Prophet’s family (Peace be upon them all). Undoubtedly, those Imams were far better informed of their grandfather’s, the Prophet’s, history and of his religion. None of them may lie, because the Quran confirmed their innocence against the sins. The Prophet had ordered that their words and deeds be followed. All Muslims agree to the fact that those Imams were very truthful, noble, faithful and chaste.
            The Imams confirmed that their grandfather, the Prophet, had been poisoned in his last days by Ayesha and Hafsa, at the order of their fathers, Abu Bakr and Omar. Abu Bakr and Omar were conspiring to usurp the throne after the demise of the Prophet. However, the Prophet would also stress that his rightful successor would be his cousin, and the husband of his daughter, Imam Ali (Peace be upon him). He even coerced them once to pledge allegiance to him on the Ghadir Day.

            At the same time, the Prophet brought to light the fact that some of his companions and wives would turn against his successor. He warned his followers against this, stressing that it would be their test from Allah. Those who would show their allegiance to the rightful successor would pass the test and go to heaven. While those who would let him down and support the rebels, would go to the eternal hell since they would be apostates. That is, deserters who converted back to disbelief, even if they called themselves Muslims.
            Sometimes, the Prophet would confront Abu Bakr, Omar, Ayesha and Hafsa with the fact that they hated his heir, predicting in their presence that their conspiracy would succeed to oust him from power. The Prophet did that as ordered by Allah to put those four into a further test.

            One of the famous ancient Shia interpreters of Quran relates a Hadith as reported by the Imams that further elaborates on the Prophet’s assassination. That interpreter is Ali Ibn Ibrahim Al-Qommi, a great scholar who lived in the days of Imam Al-Hassan Al-Askry (Peace be upon him). He was known among Shias for his veracity and honesty in the way he related Hadith from Imams.

            The Hadith reported by Ali Ibn Ibrahim says: “The Prophet said to Hafsa: I will tell you a secret. If you divulge it, Allah, His Angels and people will curse you. So, what is it? wondered Hafsa. The Prophet said: Abu Bakr will be able to seize the Caliphate and power after me, and will be succeeded by your father, Omar. Hafsa wondered: Who informed you of this? Allah, the Omnipresent, the Omniscient informed me. On the same day, Hafsa divulged the secret to her friend, Ayesha. In turn, Ayesha divulged the secret to her father, Abu Bakr. So, Abu Bakr came to Omar and said: My daughter Ayesha told me a secret reported by Hafsa, but I cannot always trust what Ayesha says. So, you ask your daughter Hafsa, make sure and tell me. Omar went over to Hafsa, and asked her. In the beginning, she was startled and denied it. But, Omar said to her: If you have indeed heard this secret, then, tell us so we can immediately seize power and get rid of Muhammad”. So, Hafsa said, yes, he told me that. At this point, those four got together and conspired to poison the Prophet” (Refer: Tafseer al-Qommi, Vol II, Page 367, Bihar-ul-Anwar by Allama al-Majlisi, Vol XXII, Page 239).

            There is another great ancient scholar of the Quran, Muhammad Ibn Massoud al-Ayashi who also belonged to the Bakri sect, but was later divinely guided to the true faith and converted to Shia faith and believed in the Imams. That scholar lived till the end of Third Century Hegira. Scholars have ever since relied on his book that he wrote to interpret the Holy Quran (Tafseer).

            When this great scholar reaches the point where he interpreted the verse I have referred to earlier, he relates a Hadith reported by al-Imam al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him) in which he confirms that Abu Bakr, Omar, Ayesha and Hafsa had committed the crime. Imam al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him) was sitting with a group of his followers, and asked them: “Do you know whether the Prophet died a natural death or was murdered? Allah the Almighty says: “if then he died or is killed”. The truth is that the Prophet was poisoned in his last days before he died. Ayesha and Hafsa administered poison in his food. Upon hearing this, the Imam Sadiq’s followers said that they and their fathers were among the worst villains ever created by Allah.” (Refer: Tafseer al-Ayashi, Vol I, Page 200; Bihar-ul-Anwar, by Allama Al-Majlisi, Vol XXII, Page 516)
            Al-Ayshi relates another Hadith attributed to Imam Al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him) in which he says: “al-Hussein Ibn Munther asked Imam Al-Sadiq about Allah’s words “if then he dies or is killed will you turn back upon your heels”. Does it mean that the Prophet died a natural death or was murdered? Imam Al-Sadiq said: In this verse, Allah refers to the Prophet’s companions who committed the misdeed”. (Refer: Tafseer Al Ayash, Vol I, Page 200; Bihar-ul-Anwar, By Allama Al-Majlisi, Vol XX, Page 91)

            These Hadiths confirm beyond doubt that the Supreme Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) was killed by poison administered in his last days and not which was allegedly given four years prior to his death. They also confirm that the crime was an act of treachery by his two wives and their fathers. Jews had nothing to do with this.

            If we take a closer look at the Quranic verse that speaks of the Prophet’s death, we notice its consistency with these Hadiths. The verse says: “And Muhammad is no more than an apostle; the apostles have already passed away before him; if then he dies or is killed will you turn back upon your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah and Allah will reward the grateful.” (3:144).

            In that verse, Allah addresses the Prophet’s companions and not the Jews. The verse associates the (Prophet’s death) and the (turning back), which means apostasy. We hereby understand that the assassination of the Prophet was to be followed by turning back and apostasy. This actually happened, and turned in favour of the rebels who seized power, i.e. Abu Bakr and Omar. Thus, it was addressed to the accused in the first place and not to the Jews who were no longer a threat in Medina .

            It is true that the verse was quoted in relation to the Uhud battle, to reprimand the Prophet’s companions who had let him down, by fleeing and leaving him alone with Imam Ali amidst the non-Muslim warriors. But, the verse also speaks of the future. It says that a group of people would turn back and become apostates. They would bring no harm to Allah, because they would actually be harming themselves as they would go to hell. On the other hand, another group of people would keep their faith and would be well rewarded by Allah and enter the Heaven. This is because they were grateful to Allah for His blessings by keeping their allegiance to His Prophet and his rightful successor.

            It is now evident that the crime was described by these Hadiths and this is in consistence with the Quran. Therefore, it is obvious that the Shiite version of the Prophet’s assassination is trustworthy.
            But is there any evidence in the resources of Bakri sect, that supports the Shiite version and shows involvement of the Prophet’s two wives in the crime?

            In fact, most of the Hadiths that reach us through the pious Imams from among the Prophet’s descendants (peace be upon all of them) are supported by Hadiths in Bakri resources, even if implicitly. It is here that the power of Shiism, as it does not rely only on Shiite resources. Rather, it brings forth supporting evidence from the sources of other sects for the facts put forth by the Imams.

            There is a Hadith related by the famous scholars of Bakri sect like Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and Ibn Kathier. In that Hadith, Ayesha confesses that when the Prophet was sleep during his illness she put a strange substance into his mouth with the help of the other wives. Ayesha did it intentionally despite Prophet’s prohibition. When the Prophet woke up, he saw the residuals of the substance that they had put into his mouth. He angrily asked what it was and who had disobeyed his orders. Ayesha and her collaborators justified their action saying that it was just a medication. Following that, they accused the Prophet’s uncle, Al-Abbas Ibn Abdul Muttalib. However, the Prophet acquitted his uncle and ordered that those who were with him in the room should be punished by having the same substance put into their mouths.

            Ayesha relates: “When Allah’s Prophet contracted the terminal disease, he told us: Don’t put the medicine in my mouth. But we disobeyed him on the ground that every patient dislikes medication! So, we put the substance in his mouth. When he regained his senses, he wondered: Who did that? Have I not admonished you not to do that? So, we said: It is your uncle Al-Abbas who thought that you might have contracted a lateral tumour! The Prophet said: This disease is caused by the Devil. I cannot contract it. The Prophet ordered that everyone in the house must put the same substance into their mouths, except Al-Abbas, as the Prophet said: He was not with you”. (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol VIII, Page 42; Sahih Muslim, Vol VII, Page 42; Masnad Ahmed Ibn Hanbal, Vol VI, Page 53; Prophet’s Biography by Ibn Kathier, Vol. IV, Page 446).

            It seems that people were confused about what had happened to the Prophet. This was the matter that forced Ayesha to relate this Hadith in an attempt to falsify and conceal the truth. She wanted to hide the truth of the substance that she put into the mouth of the Prophet, claiming that it was a medication. She explained that what she made was “lad”, which means administering medication to a side of the mouth.
            What exactly was that strange substance? Why did Ayesha and her collaborators intend to put it into the Prophet’s mouth during his sleep? Why did Ayesha and her collaborators falsely accuse Al-Abbas of the crime? Why did the Prophet order to have them punished by putting the substance into their mouth? Basically… how could Ayesha and her collaborators disobey the word of the Prophet?

            These controversies prove that a serious crime was perpetrated against the Prophet. If there had been no crime, the Prophet would not have ordered to punish the perpetrators. If that substance had been indeed a medicine, the Prophet would not have forbidden it to be put into his mouth. This would not have stirred his anger.

            Therefore, that substance must have been the poison that the Prophet’s children spoke of later. Those who helped Ayesha prepare it must have been Hafsa, Abu Bakr and Omar whose names were not revealed by Ayesha in her Hadith on that strange substance. Their interest was associated with the Prophet’s homicide, as they were going to seize power and oust his family from there.

            There remains a question unanswered: Can the two wives of the Prophet dare to kill him? Is it possible that Abu Bakr and Omar, who were among the Prophet’s companions, dared to commit such a crime?
            The answer is: It is not unlikely at all, because the Quran mentioned that the two wives of the prophets, Noah and Lut betrayed them and would go to hell. These verses in the Chapter Al Tahreem were revealed in the first place to address Ayesha and Hafsa by citing this example. In the same chapter, Allah testified the infidelity and wrongdoing of Ayesha and Hafsa. He threatened them strongly should they fail to repent, as I explained earlier.

            Quran predicted that the Prophet’s companions would turn against him as I have said earlier. The Prophet had also predicted in his several Hadiths that most of his companions would go to hell. History reveals that most betrayals and acts of treacheries that occurred after the Prophets were committed by their wives and companions.

            Al-Bukhari related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) said: “On doomsday, when I will be at the water pond delivering water to those who will be thirsty among my followers, a group of my followers will come to drink but the angels will drive them away and take them to Hell! And I’ll say: Oh, God! They are my companions! But God will tell me: You do not know what they did after your death. They degraded themselves to apostasy. Following that, another group of my companions will come to drink but the angels will drive them away and take them to Hell. And I’ll say: Oh, God! They are my companions! But God will tell me: You do not know what they did after your death. They degraded themselves to apostasy. Thus, only small number of my companions will escape like deserted camels in the desert.” (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol VII, Page 206).

            No one can claim that Abu Bakr cannot be among those people who will be driven to Hell, since the Prophet himself did not exempt him from that.

            Imam of the Malki school of thought, Malik Ibn Anas, relates that the Prophet prophesied to the Muslim martyrs of Uhud that they would go to Heaven. So, Abu Bakr wondered: “Aren’t we their brothers who have submitted to Islam just as they did, and fought in jihad just as they did; so, why don’t you give us the good news that we will go to heaven? The Prophet said: “It is absolutely true that you are their brothers, but I do not know what you will do after my death”. (Refer: Al Muatta of Malik Ibn Anas, Vol II, Page 642).

            Therefore, we should not exempt Abu Bakr and Omar from the crime of having taken the life of the Prophet, especially when they had tried that once before when the Prophet was on his way back from the city of Tabuk. He had to go past a rough road up a mountain. That road is called Al-Aqaba by Arabs. Those who have to go down it, on a camel for example; must choose a camel with a very quiet disposition. Should it panic, it will trip and its rider will fall and die. Abu Bakr and Omar conspired with a group of the Prophet’s hypocrite companions. They would lie in wait for the Prophet at the time of his crossing this Aqaba to frighten his camel so that she falls and he dies. This fact was reported also by the Bakri resources in clear terms, but the Bakri people try to hide and deny this fact.

            Ibn Hazm Al-Alndulsi, a famous scholar of Bakri Sect, lashed at Al-Waleed Ibn Jamia, dismissing him as a liar. But why? Ibn Hazm says: “Because he related Hadiths that state that Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, Talha and Sa’ad Ibn Abi Waqqas wanted to kill the Prophet and made sure that he met with the accident in Tabuk”. (Refer: Al Mohalla of Ibn Hazm, Vol. IX, Page 224).

            Al-Walid Ibn Jamia was not a Shiite. He belonged to the Bakri sect. Contrary to what Ibn Hazm said about him, he is so widely known for veracity and credibility that Ibn Habban would say “May Allah be pleased with him”, whenever his name was mentioned. The famous scholar of Bakri Sect in this field, “Al-Thahabi” also testified the truthfulness and credibility of this man. If he had not been honest, he would not have his Hadiths related by the famous compilers of Hadith like Muslim, Al-Baihiqi, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and Ibn Shabba.

            So, Al-Walid Ibn Jamia is not a liar. This proves that Abu Bakr, Omar and their group indeed tried to murder the Prophet as he was passing through Al-Aqaba on his way back from Tabuk. This is a famous incident in which Allah saved the life of His Prophet by a miracle. The Prophet forgave the perpetrators and refrained from punishing them.

            Thereby, we can be sure that Abu Bakr and Omar indeed wanted to kill the Prophet. Though, their plan in Aqaba failed, their next plan succeeded by collusion with their daughters Ayesha and Hafsa who administered poison to the Prophet during his sleep. Just as the Prophet forgave those who tried to kill him in Al-Aqaba, Imam Ali did the same after the martyrdom of the Prophet, fulfilling the will of the Prophet so that Allah’s test continues for them and for the humanity as a whole.

            In fact, the Prophet was just a normal patient. During his sleep, Ayesha and Hafsa administered this poison in the Prophet’s mouth, in order to hasten the seizure of power by their fathers, while ousting the rightful successor, Ali Ibn Abi Talib. It was in this way the greatest and the noblest Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) fell prey to the treachery of his two wives and companions. This is a fact that most Muslims are not aware of.

        • Have YOU seen the daughter of the King of Saudi Arabia?…see her photo!

          Don’t be surprised, but the daughter of the King of Saudi Arabia is a beautiful, modern woman, who doesn’t mind going out in public wearing only a scarf on her head and showing a bit of her hair!

          Adlah bint Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz Al Saoud, is a modern women, who calls for the freedom of women and who believes that “Al Niqab” is more of a tradition, while the scarf is more of what Islam calls for!

          Adlah sat in for an interview with the French newspaper “Le Figaro” and shared her views about marriage, Hijab, work for women and social media.

          Adlah is an active woman in Saudi Arabia. She participates in welcoming foreign delegations, she attends plays and events, she poses for photos with young women and men.

          Adlah sees that there’s a real problem with underage marriages and calls for setting the rules straight and setting an age for marriage.
          She also sees no problem in women and men working side by side, as long as there’s mutual respect and laws that indict harassment.

          • RAPED & MURDERED

            Saudi “celebrity” preacher raped and murdered five-year-old daughter
            saudi-celebrity-preacher-raped-and-murdered-five-year-old-daughter
            by Tahir Mustafa

            March, 2013

            People in Saudi Arabia were outraged when a court said a preacher who was convicted of raping and brutally murdering his five-year-old daughter was to be set free after a few months in jail and paying “blood money” to the girl’s mother. What kind of law exists in the archaic kingdom?

            What kind of society would execute minors after extracting confessions under torture but allow a child killer to get away with a relatively light sentence because he happens to be one of their own? Only in Saudi Arabia does this happen. There are two sets of laws: one for foreign workers that have virtually no rights, and another for Saudi citizens that can get away, literally, with murder. To understand the phenomenon, let us consider two unrelated cases and their outcomes.

            One relates to a Sri Lankan domestic servant, Rizana Nafeek who was accused in 2005 of smothering an infant under her care to death in the town of al-Dwadmi. The Sri Lankan maid was barely 17 and had been in the kingdom only a few weeks. She did not speak Arabic and was forced to confess to the crime under duress. She was not properly represented by a lawyer. The Saudi Interior Ministry announced on January 9 it had executed Rizana Nafeek despite mercy pleas from her poor parents to King Abdullah to spare her life.

            The other case relates to a Saudi “celebrity” television preacher, Fayhan al-Ghamdi, who tortured and murdered his five-year-old daughter. He was also accused of raping the young girl. Al-Ghamdi was sentenced to a few months in prison and ordered to pay $50,000 in “blood money” to the mother (the preacher’s wife) of the dead girl, Lama. The judge said that is all what is required under Saudi law and the preacher could walk free. The news scandalized Saudis from all walks of life who demanded the preacher be executed. The issue garnered so much publicity that the Saudi regime was forced to intervene and say the preacher would stay in prison. A statement issued by the Saudi Justice Ministry on February 12 said al-Ghamdi remained in prison and the “case was continuing.”

            The murdered girl, Lama, had suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken back, broken ribs, a broken left arm and extensive bruising and burns. Social workers said she had also been repeatedly raped and burnt. The girl’s father, al-Ghamdi, admitted using a cane and cables to inflict the injuries after doubting his five-year-old daughter’s virginity and taking her to a doctor. This was reported by the group, Women to Drive, that leads the campaign challenging the regime’s ban on women driving because according to Saudi preachers, this could lead to immorality!

            Saudi Arabia claims to be governed by Islamic Law and that its constitution is the “Qur’an and the Sunnah” yet under the country’s legal system, fathers cannot be executed for murdering their children nor can husbands be executed for murdering their wives. What ayat of the Qur’an and what hadiths say that fathers are permitted to kill their daughters without punishment? The same scandalous exemption exists in the case of husbands killing their wives. Killing daughters, that is, newborn girls, was a common practice in pre-Islamic Arabia because fathers were ashamed of having daughters. Islam put an end to this barbaric practice.

            In a ruling, the presiding judge told the prosecution that it could only seek “blood money” from the offender, in this case the murdered girl’s father. The judge refused to sentence him to death saying according to the “law,” he could not do so. Instead, the judge ruled: “Blood money and the time the defendant had served in prison since Lama’s death suffices as punishment.” What kind of law would allow a father to rape his own daughter, break her skull, ribs, back and arm using a cable and yet sentence him to only a few months in prison?

            Let us return to the case of the Sri Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek. She was convicted after extracting a confession from her without a translator present to explain to her what she was charged with. Instead, based on this “confession” she was sentenced to death and beheaded by the Saudi regime. The Sri Lankan maid had been in the kingdom only a few weeks and was barely 17 when the incident occurred. The infant’s mother accused her of smothering the child, an allegation Rizana vigorously denied after she understood what she was charged with.

            From a poor Sri Lankan family, Rizana came to work as a domestic servant in Saudi Arabia in hopes of earning a decent living to look after her family’s needs back in Sri Lanka. She was sent to the house of the Quthaibis where she was required to look after the infant, feed it, change its diapers, cook food for the family, wash the dishes and clothes as well as clean the house, which was more like a mansion. New to the job and still a minor — under International Law, a person under 18 is considered a minor (Rizana Nafeek was 17 at the time) — she tried her best to fulfill all these chores. One day when she was bottle feeding the infant, it started to choke. She rushed to tell the baby’s mother. When they returned, the baby was not breathing. The mother accused Rizana of choking the baby to death. She had no reason to harm the infant. Yet this became the basis for her trial and subsequent conviction in 2007. Despite frequent appeals to the Saudis including King Abdullah, these went unheeded and Rizana was executed by beheading in January 2013. The life of a poor Sri Lankan maid was not worth much, as far as the Saudis are concerned.

            She was given no access to lawyers before her conviction. No translators were provided to explain to her what she was being charged with. Even the Sri Lankan Embassy in Riyadh did not make any serious effort to help her. After all, she was a Muslim — yes, part of the much maligned Muslims worldwide that are up to no good — and not worth spending any time in helping her. The manner in which the Saudi authorities handled Rizana’s case evoked strong criticism from Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch (HRW). These two bodies and others also argued that her execution had breached the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child which Saudi Arabia has ratified. In fact, Saudi Arabia is in breach of violating the rights of its own children as well if they happen to be female, as the case of Lama demonstrates. The Saudis seem to harbour a special grudge against women. It is the only regime in the world that does not allow women to drive.

            While the Sri Lankan government did not care much about one of its citizens, a frightened young woman, being brutalized and murdered in a strange land, the American anti-war group, United National Anti-War Coalition (UNAC) launched a petition to lobby the US government to end its special relationship with the Saudi regime and terminate the $60 billion arms deal. UNAC has called for an end to Saudi cruelties and called upon the US government to not sell weapons to this regime.

            At its meeting in January, the UNAC Coordinating Committee endorsed the following internet petition to the US president and Congress: “The beheading of domestic worker Rizana Nafeek by the government of Saudi Arabia is the last straw. The regime should be an international pariah. Cancel the $60 billion US-Saudi Arms deal.” (To sign the petition, go to: http://signon.org/sign/condemn-the-execution?source=c.fwd&r_by=1386477).

            While it is unlikely that the US government would terminate its relationship with the House of Saud given the American elites’ tight links with Saudi rulers, the fact that groups and organizations in the US are beginning to take note of Saudi atrocities is a hopeful sign. It is grassroots mobilization that would build pressure against such tyrannical regimes and force the US government to take notice even if it does not want to. UNAC seems to have a good grasp of the terrible situation in Saudi Arabia. Its statement that accompanied the petition went on: “The gruesome beheading of Rizana Nafeek, carried out by Saudi Arabian authorities, must mark the end of tolerance for the Saudi regime. This kingdom executes people for witchcraft and blasphemy, and lashes women who dare to drive cars. It does not allow the existence of labor unions, but does permit old men to marry children. Political rights are non-existent and demonstrations are put down violently. The regime is a notorious sanctuary for tyrants from Idi Amin of Urganda to Zine Ben Ali of Tunisia.”

            According to the British daily, The Guardian, there are currently 45 foreign maids on death row in Saudi Arabia. Most are accused of killing their employers. The Saudis are notorious for mistreating poor domestic servants, whether from Sri Lanka or the Philippines. They often suffer sexual abuse. If they resist, they are accused of all kinds of crimes they have not committed. Often the charge against them is attempted murder that lands them in prison. How many of the 45 foreign maids on death row will end up on the chopping block is anybody’s guess but the fact is the Saudi authorities are quick to punish foreigners even if the evidence against them is weak. It is the word of the Saudi employer or his relatives versus that of a poor domestic servant with little or no legal representation.

            Girls from poor families in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India and the Philippines are lured by unscrupulous operators with promises of good pay as domestic servants in Saudi Arabia. Many end up being sold into prostitution rings in the kingdom. They cannot even escape because their passports are snatched by “employers” upon arrival in the kingdom. When they are caught, it is these poor girls that are beheaded for “spreading vice,” not the operators or the Saudis that run such rackets. The Saudi rulers have the gall to claim they are following the Qur’an and the Sunnah. May they be judged and punished according to the divine Book!

          • Lucky the Dudy, what is happening dudy? You said : “According to the British daily, The Guardian, there are currently 45 foreign maids on death row in Saudi Arabia. Most are accused of killing their employers.”

            Let me ask you, what is the punishment of killing in your country if you have any? So how many of the LOCAL women are lingering in those Jails of Saudi Arabia? Why did they report only foreign women?

            What about in USA, in Britain? In Indian Jails how many female killers are waiting for the court rulings?? Even if the report is true, 45 is a very negligible number in comparison to other countries in the world…dudy!

    • Lucky the Poor Church Mouse,…why don’t you go to Saudi to BEG on the streets rather than waste our time here …with the lowest IQ you have….as in Saudi Arabia even beggars ARE millionaires, even beggars ARE more intelligent than YOU!

      Saudi beggar dies leaving million-dollar fortune behind!

      A 100-year-old woman in Saudi Arabia, who spent decades begging on the streets, has died leaving behind a secret fortune of gold coins, jewellery and a real estate portfolio worth a whopping USD 10,66,580.

      The blind woman had begged for 50 years on the streets of Jeddah, before she suddenly died at her home, leaving behind a sizeable fortune.

      Known as Eisha, the beggar had amassed a fortune valued at Saudi Riyal 3 million (USD 799,935), including four buildings in the Al-Balad district of Jeddah, and an additional Saudi Riyal 1 million (USD 266,645) in jewels and gold coins.

      What do you say to you becoming a beggar for sometime???

      • YOU FUCKING MORON,

        THAT’S THE ESSENCE OF MOHAMMEDANISM!

        YOU BASTARDS PRETEND YOUR CULT OF DEATH IS THE RELIGION OF PEACE, WHEN IN FACT, FOR 1400 YEARS IT HAS BEEN THE CULT OF DEATH & DESTRUCTION!

        YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE CULT OF DEATH & ALL MEMBERS WILL BURN FOR ALL ETERNITY!

        YOU ARE SUB-HUMAN, NEANDERTHAL, MORONIC MOHAMMEDANS.

        • LUCKY BIN f*****NG WANKER, There is NO religion called MUHAMMADANISM on this planet, do you get that DUMBEST MORON?

          The people who follow the religion of ISLAM are called MUSLIMS. This poor Lady was a
          Muslim who kept begging to support others! In Islam it is obligatory to give Zakaat and Alms to the poor- of any religion, beginning with KITH and KIN, and that is what she was given…with which she was able to buy property like houses so that she helped settle other poor people, whom she NEVER charged rent.

          Which other person in the Western world CAN DO THAT….he/she being a BEGGAR.

          The above example shows the beauty of ISLAM…how Muslims become considerate even when they are poor. She didn’t need the money for herself but for others…..and used to buy Real Assets to promote the lives of others…….. do you get that dumbest MORON in the world??

          So, can YOU become a beggar and help others instead of invoking hatred towards those who are in the graves, the dead persons?

          Muhammad left the Quran behind and he is Resting In Peace. Why do you go witch-hunting with references from the fake Hadiths? Islam is for those who believe in the Quran.

          And finally, I can see that you have NO valid argument against Islam and have been acting extremely poopy!!

            YOU SON OF A GOAT:

            BESTIALITY IN KENYA
            Posted on August 7, 2013

            Bestiality refers to sexual intercourse between human beings and animals. It is confined to grossly emotionally and intellectually immature men. From the time immemorial bestiality has been common among herdsmen who are known to practice bestiality on cows goats and sheep. In recent times cases of bestiality have become so common and this has left sociologists and criminologists puzzled as to what has led to the upsurge of this crime.

            In Kenya a man had been charged with committing an unnatural act with a chicken before Nyeri Resident Magistrate. He was released on a bond of Kshs 100,000 with a surety of similar amount. It is claimed his 10 year old son found him in the act and informed his 18 year old brother who later reported the matter to the chief (see standard Newspaper July 25 p 20). At Koibatek court a man has been jailed for six years after admitting that he committed an unnatural act with a donkey. Four men in Maragua were chased away by members of the public when they wanted to have a carnal knowledge of the donkey which they had already tied so that they are able to commit the heinous act. Some girls recently were accused in Mombasa court when they were engaging in sex with dogs. These cases may be a tip of iceberg. The phenomenon may be more widespread than we think. Bestiality is also widespread worldwide.

            Swedes are increasingly indulging in farmyard frolics resulting in physical and psychological injury for the unwilling animals. Horses are the species most often abused. A total of 209 cases of bestiality have been documented since 1970’s of which 161 involved horses. It is also of interest to note that bestiality is not illegal in Sweden (www.the local. se/1357/20050429/). Bestiality is also widespread in India and Germany. It is also rampant in Okhlahoma state and it is of interest to note that when it was banned in Missouri, it was opposed by Indiana university professors.

            In the book, petals of blood by Ngugi wa Thiong’o the spread of bestiality is brought to light as having been entrenched the Kenyan society. Ngugi gives the name of the victim as Wanja who was forced by a German tourist to copulate with his dog (Petals of Blood p 132-134)

            According to Kenyan’s penal code chapter 63 section 162, bestiality is a crime. Section 162(a) states, any person who has carnal knowledge of any person against the order of nature or (b) has carnal knowledge of an animal is guilty of felony and is liable to imprisonment for fourteen years with or without corporal punishment. It is not only in Kenyan society that bestiality is considered to be a serious crime but even in Tanzania. The Tanzania penal code section 154 express the view the society holds towards those who engage in bestiality, buggery and homosexuality. The law states:

            “Any person who has carnal knowledge of any person against the order of nature or has carnal knowledge of an animal or permits a male person to have a carnal knowledge of him or her against the order of nature is guilty of felony and is liable to imprisonment for fourteen years”.
            The question which lingers in our mind, is what drives a person to be involved in such an act?
            Many studies after Lombroso who argued that criminals are born have found a relationship between crime and state of mind. Most of the criminals are mentally defective, feeblemindedness, suffering from mental degeneracy which is characterized by mental warp and instability. So it is likely that the zoophiles are those who are mentally unbalanced, mentally defective and incapable of managing their affairs with ordinary prudence.
            The use of narcotics, liquours and drugs weakens the will power and destroy the moral sense and this leads towards crime. When the self control is weakened it distorts the judgement and sometimes prepares the way for criminal action in this case bestiality.

            Most of the zoophiles are likely to have suffered child abuse. When children suffers child abuse it causes their brain to hardwired wrong. The abuse not only causes them sexual confusion but it also burns out their sexual arousal sections and causes them to need ever mounting. Man is adventurous by nature. He seeks thrills and fun. In the process he does a lot of experimentation. Man wants to try new things and bestiality is one of them. During the time of Sodom and Gormorrah women had become so cheap leading to men having carnal knowledge with other men (hence the term sodomy), might it be a repeat of history but this time men having affairs with animals?

            Sometimes men might have had bad experiences with women at sexual level. Either they might have been despised at performance level or might have been despised by women because of their poor state. In the process of feeling inferior they turn to animals which are weak and after all no consent is needed. Of course this is a state of the more powerful taking advantage of the weak (animals). When a man who has low self esteem has carnal knowledge with an animal he feels elated and his ego massaged. What this also means is that problem of finding a suitable partner can lead to bestiality.

            Bestiality is an occupation hazard. Some zoophiles have deep emotional bonds with their animals. This love is equivalent to the relationship between husband and wife, and of course affairs are the fringe benefits of the relationship. In this case sexual attraction is one of the reasons for engaging in bestiality.
            Poverty can also lead to engaging to bestiality to some people. Poverty is ever there with her debasing influence, ever crowding the weak soul to criminality to make a living. Girls who are seeking a life of affluence might be an easy target for rich tourists who come to Kenya for sexual tourism. What they want is money. Having carnal knowledge with a dog is not a big deal

            Social change with its accompanying influence of westernisation coupled with weakening of norms and mores affect behaviour. Customs and religion of a community play a very important role in daily lives of the members of the community. Deviant behaviour is punished either through ridicule or excommunication. Nobody wants to be excommunicated or to be stigmatized, but now the traditional institutions have been weakened and so the moral conscience having been weak, engaging in bestiality is not a big deal.
            Socialisation to a certain behaviour is crucial. If a child grows seeing the father or mother engaging in bestiality when they grow up they are likely to engage in the same. It is also likely that peer pressure plays a very important role in bestiality. Some of the herdsmen who have engaged in bestiality might influence their colleagues to experiment. But of great interest is also to find out when this crime is rampant, is it during cold seasons or hot seasons? Getting involved in bestiality has effect both on the animal and the zoophile. There is psychological stress to both the zoophile and the animal. Other effects are:
            • Injuries to the genitalia due to vaginal and anal penetration.

            • Cut and stab wounds
            • One can be harmed and killed by the animals
            • Stigmatisation by the society in the case of the zoophile.
            • Diseases are also likely to result
            • Ripple effect especially in the case where the child sees the father getting involved in bestiality, is likely to get involved when he grows up or hates such on act completely.
            All in all bestiality is an issue of great concern in our Kenyan society and so intervention measures need to be put in place so that the situation does not

            TEEN ARRESTED FOR BESTIALITY
            By Manuel Odeny, 21 October 2013

            A 13 year old boy arrested for alleged bestiality and incest will be taken for a mental check up.
            The class three pupil was found by his colleagues while mounting a calf at Nyamanga village in Suna West constituency before reporting the matter to his parents.

            CLERGY ALARMED BY WAVE OF BESTIALITY IN MT KENYA
            By Wambugu Kanyi, 30 July 2013

            RELIGIOUS leaders in the Mt Kenya region have raised concerns over the wave of bestiality reported in the region. Speaking during inter-denominational prayers held at Central Park grounds in Nanyuki town on Sunday, Bishop Francis Maina, the chair of Mt Kenya Outreach Ministries, said they are worried that men in the region have taken comfort in having sex with animals.
            There have been reports of men engaging in bestiality with chicken and cows in the region. Maina said these acts are devilish.
            “Such unnatural acts must be condemned in the strongest terms possible. The cases of youth raping old women and homosexuality have also increased at an alarming rate,” he said.
            The prelate urged all leaders to join hands in condemning such acts to ensure they end as they are shameful and disturbing to the society. Maina urged the youth to refrain from such evil behaviours and engage in more constructive activities.
            The bishop lamented the rise in homosexuality in Laikipia county and urged the police to carry out investigations. He said the church leadership and the government must join hands to wipe out such vices.
            Two weeks ago at a Nanyuki court, a 65-year-old woman disowned her son saying has been engaging in bestiality. The man is said to have raped two of his chicken until they died. Another man in Limuru was reportedly caught in the act with a cow.
            CASES OF BESTIALITY IN KENYA
            In recent months, there has been a lot of cases of bestiality in the country. This video shows a man who was sentenced to 14 years in jail for being involved in bestiality. What is the reason for bestiality? What causes men to rape animals and leave women in their homes? Are there health risks involved with bestiality or is it a form of perversion?

            Pakistan has banned content on more than a dozen websites because of “offensive” and “blasphemous” material, while they themselves rank No. 1 for certain sex-related search terms, including “child sex,” “rape sex,” “animal sex,” “camel sex,” “donkey sex,” “dog sex,” and “horse sex”.[1]

            AFGHANISTAN

            In a society where homosexuals and adulterers are stoned to death for “sexual immorality” you would expect a similar outcome for someone caught having sex with an animal. Surprisingly this is not the case.
            An Afghan soldier was detained by police after being caught having sex with a donkey in southeastern Afghanistan, a police officer told AFP.
            The soldier was discovered with the donkey in an abandoned house in a small village of Gardez, the capital of Paktia province, last week, a local police officer said.
            “He was caught in the act by a small boy who immediately told police about what he had seen and police arrested him in action,” the Gardez-based officer told AFP, requesting anonymity.
            The soldier claimed he committed the act because he did not have enough money to get married.
            After being caught with the donkey in a village about 100km south of the capital Kabul, he was jailed for four days and then released without charge.
            According to tradition in south and southeastern Afghanistan, a suitor must pay around $US5,000 ($A6,800) to the parents of the girl he wishes to marry.

            Could it be that the soldier was released without charge because there is nothing in the Qur’an that prohibits bestiality?

            PALESTINE

            In 1923, the Director of Health in the British Mandate government in Palestine sent out a questionnaire to his Principal Medical and Health Officers in the country, asking them to report on various sexual practices and attitudes among the Muslim Arab population.
            As a result, the British discovered that the Muslim Arabs engaged in bestiality.
            The Nablus officer finds sodomy and “similar vices” “not uncommon in some of the towns but less so in the villages where…bestiality is by no mean unknown” and “immorality…rather lightly regarded” in those villages that are closer to the larger towns. He comments, “in the villages there seems to be curiously little feeling against bestiality which I have heard admitted in a very airy way on more than one occasion. Sodomy is considered disgraceful but not I think more so than ordinary immorality” (III).

In fact, he caught two boys trying to rape a goat in the vicinity of the mazar of Hazrat Sultan Bahu. The punishment meted out to them was 10 blows with a chhittar (shoe) each on their butts. They protested however that in many rural areas having sex with an animal was considered a rite of passage on the way to becoming full members of the male society!

            DONKEY KILLED AFTER BEING RAPED

            In June 2011, a male who was caught having sex with another man’s donkey was fined Rs 50,000. This fine was not imposed for having sex with an animal, but for committing adultery. The raped donkey was labelled a ‘kari’ (an adultress) and eventually honor killed by its owner.

            Incredible though it may sound, a donkey was declared ‘Kari’ and shot dead here in a remote area on Monday. The Jirga imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the alleged ‘Karo’.
            The reports said that in Village Ghahi Khan Jatoi, a villager Ghazi Khan alias Malang shot dead his donkey on being ‘Kari’ with Sikandar Ali alias Deedo. He attempted to kill Sikander too but the alleged Karo managed to escape and surrendered himself to an influential person of the area.
            Sources said the influential person summoned both the parties and imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the Karo. They said Sikander and his family were forced to pay Rs 50,000 on the spot and the remaining amount in two installments.
            The sources added that the alleged Karo pleaded innocence at the Jirga, but the Jirga members paid no attention to it. Sikander’s family said he paid Rs 50,000 to save his life otherwise he would have been killed.

            MIDDLE EAST

            Bestiality is common among boys of tribal Arab cultures.
            Miner and DeVos (1960) comment that amongst Arab tribal cultures, “Bestiality with goats, sheep, or camels provides another outlet. These practices are not approved but they are recognized as common among boys.” Havelock-Ellis [note 52] states “The Arabs, according to Kocher, chiefly practice bestiality with goats, sheep and mares. The Annamites, according to Mondiere, commonly employ sows and (more especially the young women) dogs.”

            Serving History
            There is also a certain saying which remains popular among the Arabs:
            The Arabs have never taken quite so condemnatory an attitude towards the practice, and indeed a popular Arab saying had it that

            “The pilgrimage to Mecca is not complete without copulating with the camel.”[9]

            SUDAN

            In February 2006, a man caught having sex with a neighbor’s goat was not punished, but ordered by the council of elders to pay the neighbor a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) and marry the animal because he “used it as his wife”.
            A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his “wife”, after he was caught having sex with the animal.
            The goat’s owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders.
            They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi.
            “We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together,” Mr Alifi said.

            MOROCCO
            Morocco is an Islamic country, with 98.7% of the population Muslims.[10] The following is taken from a paper on sexuality in Morocco written by Nadia Kadiri, M.D., and Abderrazak Moussaïd, M.D., with Abdelkrim Tirraf, M.D., and Abdallah Jadid, M.D. Translated by Raymond J. Noonan, Ph.D., and Sandra Almeida.[11]
            In the rural world, zoophilia is still very widespread and not blameworthy. With masturbation, it constitutes an obligatory passage in the adolescent male’s apprenticeship of sexuality.
            The operative phrase is ‘obligatory passage in the adolescent male’s apprenticeship of sexuality’. Obligatory. It means in rural Morocco, Muslim males must have sexual intercourse with animals as part of their sexual apprenticeship.
            Also according to the scholars Allen Edwardes and Robert Masters, Ph.D, FAACS, the Muslims of Morocco believe that sexual intercourse with donkeys “make the penis grow big and strong” and masturbation is often scorned by them in favor of bestiality.[12]

            SLAMIC SCRIPTURE

            The above paper also says “it is prohibited without question by the Shariâ”. But is this alleged prohibition within the Shari’ah extracted (as it must be) from the Qur’an and Hadith, or has this fiqh been derived using external non-Islamic sources?

            QURAN

            In contrast with what secular and non-Islamic religious sources say about bestiality, this is what the Qur’an has to say on the subject:
            That’s right – absolutely, positively nothing. Unlike the Qur’an’s clear-cut rulings on the morality of homosexuality, Polygamy, rape, and pedophilia, the permissibility of bestiality seems to have been left open to ‘interpretation.’
            If Islamic teachings were truly opposed to such a practice, then this omission is somewhat surprising when you consider that, historically, bestiality was indigenously accepted in the Middle-East.[13]

            HADITH

            There is no prohibition against bestiality to be found within the two Sahihs. The following hadith is taken from the Sunnah Abu-Dawud collection, not Bukari or Muslim.
            Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If anyone has sexual intercourse with an animal, kill him and kill it along with him. I (Ikrimah) said: I asked him (Ibn Abbas): What offence can be attributed to the animal/ He replied: I think he (the Prophet) disapproved of its flesh being eaten when such a thing had been done to it.
            Abu Dawud 38:4449
            Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? And it is. Just look at the very next hadith.
            Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: There is no prescribed punishment for one who has sexual intercourse with an animal.
            Abu Dawud 38:4450
            This is a very clear contradiction. How can one hadith say kill the person committing bestiality, and the very next one say there is no prescribed punishment for the same person? Both statements cannot be true.
            What’s worse; these two contradictory hadiths (transmitted through different isnad) have been attributed to the same person. Abu Dawud himself had said the former of the two hadith is “not strong” and the latter further “weakens” it.[14]
            From the above, we can gather that Robert Masters had correctly stated, “bestiality was not specifically prohibited by the Prophet,”[9] so there is little wonder that Islamists generally shy away from mentioning Abu Dawud 38:4449 in their pronouncements on bestiality.

            SAHIH (AUTHENTIC) HADITH

            As we have previously mentioned, there is no prohibition against bestiality to be found within the two Sahihs (Authentic). However there does exist a certain hadith and commentary by the renowned Islamic scholar al-Nawawi, which is of interest.
            The following narration does not exist in the English translations of Sahih Muslim, but a similar (but sanitized version) appears in: Sahih Muslim 3:684
            و حدثني ‏ ‏زهير بن حرب ‏ ‏وأبو غسان المسمعي ‏ ‏ح ‏ ‏و حدثناه ‏ ‏محمد بن المثنى ‏ ‏وابن بشار ‏ ‏قالوا حدثنا ‏ ‏معاذ بن هشام ‏ ‏قال حدثني ‏ ‏أبي ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏قتادة ‏ ‏ومطر ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏الحسن ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي رافع ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي هريرة ‏ ‏أن نبي الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏إذا جلس بين ‏ ‏شعبها ‏ ‏الأربع ثم جهدها فقد وجب عليه الغسل ‏

            Narrated by Zuhair Ibn Harb, narrated by Ghasan Al-Masma’i, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Al-Mathny, narrated by Ibn Bashar, who said that it was narrated by Muath Ibn Hisham, narrated by Abu Qatada, narrated by Mattar, narrated by Al-Hassan, narrated by Abu Rab’i, narrated by Abu Huraira who said:
            “The prophet — peace be upon him — said, ‘If one sits between a woman’s four parts (shu’biha Al-arba’) and then fatigues her, then it necessitates that he wash.’
            In the hadith of Mattar it is added ‘even if he does not ejaculate (yunzil).’ Zuhair narrated among them using the phrase ‘Ashba’iha Al-arba’. It was also narrated by Muhammad Ibn Umar Ibn Ibad Ibn Jablah, narrated Muhammad Ibn Abi Uday, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Al-Mathny, narrated by Wahb Ibn Jarir who both related from Shu’bah who narrated from Qatada who gave this same chain of transmission, except that in the hadith of Shu’bah it has the phrase ‘then he labored’ but did not have the phrase ‘even if he does not ejaculate.’

            IMAM AL-NAWAWI (1234 — 1278 AD)

            Below is a short bio of al-Nawawi, whose commentary of Sahih Muslim is second only to Ibn Hajar’s commentary of Sahih Bukhari.[15]
            Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi was born in the village of Nawa in Southern Syria, Nawawi spent most of his life in Damascus where he lived in a simple manner, devoted to Allah, engaging single-mindedly in worship, study, writing and teaching various Islamic sciences. The life of this world seems scarcely to have impinged upon him. He was a versatile and extremely dedicated scholar whose breadth of learning was matched by its depth.
            Imam Nawawi died at the young age of 44 years, leaving behind him numerous works of great importance, the most famous of these being:
            • al-Arba’un Nabawi (An-Nawawis Forty Hadith)
            • Riyadhus saleheen
            • al-Maqasid (Al-Nawawi’s Manual of Islam).
            • Kitab al-Adhkar,
            • Minhaj al-Talibin (a main reference for Shafi’i fiqh)
            • Shar’ Sahih Muslim (he was the first to arrange the sahih of Muslim in the now familiar categories)
            Although best known for his works in hadith, Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277) was also the Imam of the later Shafi’i school of Jurisprudence, and widely acknowledged as the intellectual heir to Imam Shafi’i. He was a renowned scholar and jurist who dedicated his life to the pursuit of Islamic learning.

            Commentary of Imam Al-Nawawi on the Hadith
            The saying of the prophet — peace be upon him- ‘When he sits between her fours parts) mostly its a home animal (shu’biha Al-arba) and has intercourse with her then fatigues her’

            In another narration the word ‘Ashu’biha’ is used. The scholars have disagreed about the intended meaning of ‘shu’biha Al-arba’ (the fours) for some said that it means the arms and the legs, while others have said that it refers to the legs and thighs, and other said it means the legs and the edge of the pubic area. Al-Qadi Ayad chose the meaning of the four areas surrounding the vagina. The word (Shu’b) means areas, its singular form being (Shu’bah). As for those who say (Ashba’iha) that is the plural of the word (Shu’b).
            The word Aj-hada-ha (fatigue her) means to plow her, which was also stated by Al-Khatabi. Others have said it means to make her reach exhaustion as in the phrase ‘she made him toil and labor till he was exhausted’. Al-Qadi Ayad — may Allah rest his soul- said ‘Primarily, the word (Jahada’ha) means that the man exerted his effort working in a woman, where the word (Juh’d) means energy and refers to motion by describing the type of work. This is similar to his (the prophet) saying ‘he who plowed her’ meaning he who penetrated her by his motion. Otherwise, what other fatigue could a man experience because of her, and Allah knows best.

            The meaning of the hadith is that the necessity to wash is not limited to when semen is ejaculated, rather it is when the penile head (Hash-fa, lit. “the head of the male member,” i.e. head of the penis) penetrates the vagina, then it is necessary for the man and the woman to wash. There is no disagreement on this today, even though there was disagreement on this by some of the early companions and others later. However, an agreement was later reached and this is what we have shown and presented previously.
            Our companions have said that if the penile head has penetrated a woman’s anus, or a man’s anus, or an animal’s vagina or its anus then it is necessary to wash whether the one being penetrated is alive or dead, young or old, whether it was done intentionally or absentmindedly, whether it was done willfully or forcefully.

            This also applies if the woman places the male member inside her while the man is asleep, whether the penis is erect or not, whether the penis is circumcised or uncircumcised. All these situations require that the person committing the act and the one the act is committed on must wash themselves, unless the person committing the act or the person the act is committed on is a young male or female. In that case it cannot be said that the person must wash, for they do not have the responsibility, rather it is said that this person is in a state of impurity. If that person can discern (the sexual act) then his guardian can command him to wash just as he commands him to perform the ablution washing for prayers. For if he prays without washing, his prayer has not been performed correctly; likewise if he doesn’t wash after he reaches puberty he must be forced to wash. If he washed as a youth and then reaches puberty, then he does not have to repeat the washing.

            Our companions have said that intercourse occurs when a healthy male’s penile head completely penetrates (an orifice), as has been unanimously agreed. Thus, when the penile head has completely disappeared (inside the orifice), then all the regulations concerning washing apply. It is unanimously agreed that it is not necessary that the entire penile shaft penetrate to apply the regulations of washing. If part of the penile head penetrates, then the regulations of washing are not imposed as is agreed, except by an odd few of our companions who said that even in this case all the regulations of washing apply. However, this opinion is wrong, rejected and abandoned. If the male member was severed and what remained was less than the length of the penile head, then none of the washing regulations apply. If the part remaining was equal in length to the penile head length then that part must completely penetrate for the regulation of washing to apply. If the part remaining was greater in length to the penile head length then there are two famous opinions for our companions. The most correct is that if the portion that penetrates is equal to the length of the penile head, then the regulations for washing apply. The other opinion is that none of the regulations for washing apply until the entire remaining length of the penile shaft completely penetrates and Allah knows best.
            If a man wraps a sheath around his male member and then ejaculates inside a woman’s vagina, then there are three opinions from our companions. The most famous is that the man must wash. The second is that he does not have to wash because he ejaculated inside the sheath. The third is that if the sheath is thick and prevents climax and wetness (in the vagina) then washing is not necessary, otherwise it is necessary and Allah knows best.
            If a woman inserts (in her vagina) an animal’s penis she must wash, and if she inserts a detached penis (thakaran maktu-an, lit. “a severed male member”) there are two opinions; the most correct is that she must wash.

            Sahih Muslim – Book of Menstruation – hadith #525 – Commentary

            ISLAMIC SCHOLARS

            Some Sunni Islamic scholars have ruled that bestiality does not invalidate the hajj or ones fast.
            ولو وطئ بهيمة لا يفسد حجه

            “If he had sexual intercourse with an animal, that will not make his hajj void”
            Abu Bakar al-Kashani (d. 587 H), Badaye al-Sanae, Vol. 2, p. 216
            “Sex with animals, dead people and masturbation, does not invalidate one’s fast provided ejaculation does not occur”
            Allamah Hassan bin Mansoor Qadhi Khan, Fatawa Qadhi Khan, Page 820
            Others have said it is halal.
            لقد كانت نكاح الحيوانات قبل البعثه منتشره وتروى كثير من الروايات انها حلال لكنها مكروه والاحوط وجوبا ترك هذه العاده التي تسبب الأذى النفسي ويجب عليك الاعتراف لصاحب الاغنام ودفع قيمتها لمالكها

            Sex with animals before the mission (Islam) was wide spread and many narrations are narrated that it is halal but makrooh (disliked). And on the compulsory precaution one should abandon this practice that may cause self harm. And you must admit this to the owner of the sheep and pay the owner.
            Sex with animals Fatwa
            al-Uzma Seyyid Ali al-Sistani

            CONCLUSION

            From all of the above, we can certainly see that, unlike the West, Islamic societies do not universally harbor negative attitudes towards bestiality. Many Muslims seek out gratification or are indifferent to this perversion, and in some cases it is even openly promoted and made obligatory.
            This is all in stark contrast with their attitudes towards homosexuality and their allowance of pedophilia. Therefore to claim that the West without the guidance of Islam has allowed bestiality is not only false, but hypocritical when you consider that this perversion, alongside pedophilia, is left largely unhindered by the Islamic clerisy in their societies and runs rampant among followers of Islam.
            Aside from their own embarrassment, we can also see that there is little basis for any Shari’ah prohibition of bestiality/zoophilia as the Qur’an and the Sahih Hadiths (Bukhari and Muslim) do not prohibit this unnatural practice, furthermore the references we have examined outside of the two Sahihs are considered weak.

            ISLAMIC CLERIC CONFIRMS ALL SUNI MUSLIM MEN ARE SODOMITES

            You know how some people insult Muslims by calling them crude names that are the equivalents of sodomites and bestialists (butt- and goat-f**kers)? It turns out at least the sodomite insult is true! We have it straight from the mouth of none other than a Muslim cleric — a London-based Shiite cleric named Yasser Habib.

            ‘PERFUMED GARDEN’

            by Abu Nuwas:

            O the joy of sodomy!
            So now be sodomites, you Arabs.
            Turn not away from it–
            therein is wondrous pleasure.
            Take some coy lad with kiss-curls
            twisting on his temple
            and ride as he stands like some gazelle
            standing to her mate.
            A lad whom all can see girt with sword
            and belt not like your whore who has
            to go veiled.
            Make for smooth-faced boys and do your
            very best to mount them, for women are
            the mounts of the devils

            THIS IS REAL MOHAMMEDANISM:

            Surah 8:69: “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good.” (Yusuf Ali)

            ISLAMIC QUESTION & ANSWER, ONLINE WITH MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI, SOUTH AFRICA, ASK THE IMAM:

            “It may, superficially, appear distasteful to copulate with a woman who is not a man’s legal wife, but once Shariah makes something lawful, we have to accept it as lawful, whether it appeals to our taste, or not; and whether we know its underlying wisdom or not.”

            ALL SUNNI MUSLIMS ARE SODOMITES

            Satan Attends Every Childbirth; He Touches Every Infant
            Except for Mary and her Son Jesus, all babies cry during their birth, because Satan touches them… (Sahih Bukhari, 4.55.641)
            Whenever a child is born, Satan pricks it; that is why the child cries. Only Mary and Jesus were not pricked by Satan…(Sahih Muslim, 30.5837, 5838)
            Say prayer during sexual intercourse, and Satan will not touch your child…(Sahih Bukhari, 4.54.503

            ALL SUNNI MUSLIMS FINGER FC-KED BY SATAN AT BIRTH

            In a broadcast on the UK’s Fadak TV on May 24, 2012, Habib calmly and dispassionately asserts that all non-Shiite males — especially the Shiites’ Muslim rivals, the Sunnis — are sodomized at birth by the devil, and grow up to become “passive homosexuals”, i.e., the “bottom” of a homosexual pair who is penetrated in anal sex.

            Islamic cleric confirms Muslim men really are sodomites
            You know how some people insult Muslims by calling them crude names that are the equivalents of sodomites and bestialists (butt- and goat-f**kers)? It turns out at least the sodomite insult is true! We have it straight from the mouth of none other than a Muslim cleric — a London-based Shiite cleric named Yasser Habib.
            In a broadcast on the UK’s Fadak TV on May 24, 2012, Habib calmly and dispassionately asserts that all non-Shiite males — especially the Shiites’ Muslim rivals, the Sunnis — are sodomized at birth by the devil, and grow up to become “passive homosexuals”, i.e., the “bottom” of a homosexual pair who is penetrated in anal sex.

            TRANSCRIPTION OF YASSER HABIB:

            “Anyone who consents to being called ‘Emir of the Believers’ is a passive homosexual. Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, for example, who willingly assumed this title, was, without a doubt, a passive homosexual. The same goes for the caliphs Othman Ibn Affan, Muawiyya, Yazid, and the rules and sultans of the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties, as well as some of the rulers and sultans of our day and age.

            For example, the king of Morocco bears this title. This is how you know that he is a passive homosexual. This is in addition to the evidence revealed by Western media, which showed that the current king of Morocco is indeed a passive homosexual who belongs to the homosexual community. This was leaked from his palace by his assistants, his servants, and his ‘boys,’ whom he would penetrate and who would penetrate him. They fled to Europe, sought asylum, and exposed all this.

            Cleric Yasser Habib exposes Kalifa Umar as a Sodomite

            It is told (in the hadith) that Umar Ibn Al-Khattab had an anal disease, which could be cured only by semen. One should know that this is a well-known medical condition, which is also mentioned in sacred texts. Someone who, God forbid, has been penetrated in the anus, a worm grows within him, due to the semen discharged in him…
            A disease develops in his anus, and as a result, he cannot calm down, unless. he is penetrated again and again.

            The Shiites are undoubtedly protected from this disease, and from committing this abominable and hideous act. As for the Nasibis (who hated the prophet Muhammad’s family), they are definitely afflicted with this homosexuality.
            One of the devils is present at the birth of every human being. If Allah knows that the newborn is one of our Shiites, He fends off that devil, who cannot harm the newborn. But if the newborn is not one of our Shiites, the devil inserts his index finger into the anus of the newborn, who thus becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is not a Shiite, the devil inserts his index finger into this newborn’s anus, and when he grows up, he becomes a passive homosexual.

            If the newborn is a female, the devil inserts his index finger into her vagina, and she becomes a whore. At that moment, the newborn cries loudly, as he comes out of his mother’s womb. Note that some children cry normally at birth, while others cry loudly and incessantly. You should know that this is the work of that devil, according to this narration.”

            Islam is NOT a religion, but an insane political system and sex cult populated by the severely mentally impaired.”

            When cleric Yasser Habib “says ‘passive homosexual’, he is referring to the receptive, submissive, female-equivalent partner. Dominant, inserting male homosexual activity is universally accepted in Islam. He has no problem with that. It’s grown men ‘catching’ that he has a problem with.”

          • MUHAMMADANISM:

            It is a grave but a generally serious error to allow people who follow the CULT of Muhammad, to arrogate only to themselves the title Muslimoon as if they were/are the first and only Monotheists on the planet.

            It is an undeniable fact, that the so-called ‘Muslims’ follow the Sunna (the lifestyle, the manners, doings and sayings) of Muhammad even if and when it contradicts the Quran in such instances as the number of prayers, the punishment for fornication, the alleged prohibition of drinking wine etc.

            By definition, those who emulate a human being, belong to a CULT and NOT a RELIGION. Muhammadanism is in actuality, the CULT of MUHAMMAD.

            Being called a Muhammadan Muslim is similar in context as calling someone a Buddhist or a Christian.

            Any Monotheist is automatically a Muslim.

            All Israelites, all Jews, all Hanifs and all Christians – who believe in Jesus as a prophet only – are of course Monotheists and hence are Muslimoon.

            Jews are Muslimoon of the Mosaic faith while the Arabs – in general – and Pakistanis, Somalis, Chechen, etc, and others for example, are Muslimoon but are followers of Muhammad’s version of ‘Islam’.

            Just because a general perception is wrong, it does not mean it should not be corrected especially since the Quran itself defines who and what a Muslim is; one who submits to the will of the One and Only Allah; a Monotheist.

            Not every Muslim is a Muhammadan/follower of Muhammad; but most followers of Muhammad/Muhammadans are Muslimoon.

            Since the Quran asserts that the Arabs were ignorant of previously revealed Scriptures, then it is utterly useless to try to find ‘proofs’ contradicting their claims of ‘prior knowledge’ of Biblical events. The Quran makes it crystal clear, that they were both unlearned and illiterate people.

            The historical and archaeological records moreover, show them to be a people without writing and without even the rudiments of a meaningful structured and vibrant civilization.

            All their claims to the contrary are false, and are totally based on wishful-thinking to give themselves ‘roots’ and a worthy ‘ ancestry’ so as to compete with, and even attempt to supersede the People of the Book.

            Both the Quran and their own history show that ‘Islam’ – which in reality is Muhammadanism – is basically a severe, uncompromising and hatemongering cult belief syatem.

            Almost every learned leader among the Muhammadan ‘divines’ from Khomeini to Nasrallah as well as in all their media of information, all one hears or reads are words of anger, accusations, hate, bloodcurdling calls for death and destruction to any and all so called ‘unbelievers’.

            The Muhammadan sects themselves, do not escape this ingrained and loathsome hatred as they accuse each other of blasphemy, idolatry and Shirk as can be seen between the Sunnis and Shias – for example – all over the ‘Muslim’ world.

            The greatest threat to Muhammadan Islam is the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth as well as INFORMATION & KNOWLEDGE.

            The greatest allies of Muhammadan Islam are IGNORANCE and STUPIDITY.

            Because in reality, the Muhammadan version of Islam is nothing more than a tossed salad of plagiarised, pirated, plundered and/or perverted precepts, ideas, concepts, thoughts, fetishes and traditions from the Bible, New Testament, Zoroasterian religion and pagan Arabian religion.

            Almost all the traditions of the ‘Muslim’ followers of Muhammad are repackaged Arabian paganism disguised under the mantle of ‘Islam’.

            This is why the followers of Muhammad are prohibited from reading the Bible since this would make them aware of the sources from which most of the Quranic ideas, stories and legislation, both religious and judicial, come from.

            Becoming aware of these differences induces in the thinking person the seeds of doubt. To overcome doubt, one must investigate even more; contrasting and comparing sources so as to arrive to some conclusion.

            An indepedently thinking Muhammadan, becomes a danger to himself – his beliefs – and his immediate entourage.

            Of over 53 countries in the world that have a majority of Muhammadans, only ONE, Turkey is a true democracy; all the others are despotic or authoritarian regimes which control all sources of information, turning their people into unthinking robots and zombies. So much for the none existent justice, compassion, equality etc, etc that the Muhammadans brag about.

            There are very few sane ‘theologians’ among the plethora of demented and perverted multitudes of Mullas, Imams and Ayatoullas since any among them – or even among the laity – who do not conform to the fundamentals of the faith, are automatically and very quickly labelled heretics and then summarily murdered and eliminated.

            It is the only ‘religion’ that decrees the murder of any Muhammadan who changes his/her mind to get out of the faith.

            It is wishful thinking and an extremely short-sighted view to believe, that it is a few ‘fundamentalists’ who are hijacking ‘peaceful Islam’. The facts are, that the greatest majority of Muhammadans are fundamentalists since they totally believe in the precepts, doctrines, instructions and dogmas of both the Quran and its interpreters among their leaders.

            That is why one sees them in demonstrations in ‘Palestine’, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Egypt, Yemen etc celebrating the death and destruction brought about by the murderers of September 11th as well as when any Americans or ‘none-believers’ are blown to pieces such as happened in Kenya and Bali for example.

            Even if 99% of them are ‘peace loving’, the remaining 1% terrorists constitute 12,000,000 hate mongering and suicidal fanatics that this world cannot possibly afford to let roam free.

            The Muhammadan world is full of fanaticism, bigotry, hate, jealousy, anger, hypocrisy and endemic ignorance fanned every Friday by the sermons of their ‘religious’ leaders. The greatest enemy of Muhammadanism are not the imaginary and perceived West, the Christians, the Hindus, the Israelis etc. but the Truth, the whole truth and nothing but the Truth.

            Their greatest enemy is the QURAN that incites them to hate, to discriminate, to dehumanize, to insult, to denigrate, to dispise, to enslave, to conquer and or to mass murder all those who do not believe as they do, the UNBELIEVERS, who constitute the majority 85% of humanity.

            Because their enemy is from within, they are not willing to face reality – which would be excruciatingly painful – and admit fault. They blame their self inflicted ‘misfortunes’ on all and sundry, because it is much more comforting and easier to do, than to look in the mirror and admit ugliness.

            Any psychiatrist worth a grain of salt would tell, that to cure oneself and exorcise one’s demons is attained first by looking truthfully at oneself and admitting guilt, mistakes, ugliness etc otherwise one cannot ever be cured.

            Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 8.9 Narrated byAsma bint Abu Bakr
            My mother came to me, hoping (for my favor) during the lifetime of the Prophet. I asked the Prophet, “May I treat her kindly?” He replied, “Yes.” Ibn ‘Uyaina said, “Then Allah revealed: ‘Allah forbids you not with regards to those who fought not against you because of religion, and drove you not out from your homes, that you should show them kindness and deal justly with them.’…….(60.8)”

            Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 7.115 Narrated byIbn Umar
            During the lifetime of the Prophet we used to avoid chatting leisurely and freely with our wives lest some Divine inspiration might be revealed concerning us. But when the Prophet had died, we started chatting leisurely and freely (with them).

            *** This INNOCENT statement was DIVINELY SAVED FROM THE AX OF ABROGATION, which speaks VOLUMES about the state of mind of Muhammad’s followers as long as he was alive. A STATE OF PERPETUAL FEAR ***

            Muhammadanism is a CULT which is warmongering in outlook, extremist in action and utterly totalitarian in its objectives. It is a belief system that cannot ever be compared to the Judeo-Christian ethics but fully compatible with National Socialism and Bolshevism since all of them arrogate only to themselves every conceivable right while denying for all others any political, social, cultural or religious legitimacy.

            It was Muhammad, after all, who – contrary to all the traditions of even the pagan Arabians – took up arms against his own tribe and deliberately and wilfully destroyed all the bonds that held the individual honour bound in fidelity and defence of his kith and kin.

            It was Muhammad who turned sons against fathers, sisters against brothers and parents against their own families unless they believed in
            “Allah and his messenger”.

            It is important to point out, that Muhammad preceded Stalin and Hitler in creating the ultimate ‘Cult of Personality’ where-by all his followers swore fealty only to himself and would murder father, mother, brother or sister at his orders.
            (Ibn Ishaq’s/A. Guillaume, The Life of Muhammad p.369).

            It was Muhammad who broke every single rule of ‘prohibitions’ among the pagan Arabians and justified these wanton deeds with the ‘MADE TO ORDER’ “then it was revealed” verses.

            In his Quran, Muhammad, SUBCONSCIOUSLY, described himself FLAWLESSLY –

            2: 204 There is the type of man whose speech about this world’s life may dazzle thee and he calls Allah to witness about what is in his heart; yet is he the most contentious of enemies.

            Muhammad fits this MAN PERFECTLY.

            Allah, it seems, was at Muhammad’s beck and call for almost twenty three years during which, Muhammad received personal divine sanctions regarding everything that Muhammad coveted or required such as:

            He was sanctioned to ‘marry’ as many women as he needed to satisfy his sexual appetite.

            To change Arabian law so that he could marry his own adopted son’s wife whom he lusted for.

            To marry and have intercourse with the nine years old child Aisha.

            To conduct Piratical attacks against the caravans of the Quraysh during the FORBIDDEN MONTHS.

            To Slaughter those whom he disliked even if they were in the SANCTUARY of the Ka’ba.

            To Slay and conduct war against all UNBELIEVERS until they either CONVERT, be SUBJUGATED or be SLAUGHTERED.

            To Rob, Steal, Plunder and Loot anyone or any group that he feels inclined to and then collect 20% of the ILL BEGOTTEN ‘rewards’

            All of which were very CONVENIENTLY and READILY SANCTIONED by the forever willing and ready Allah. It seems that Allah, the creator of the universe, paid more attention to Muhammad’s personal needs than to any other of his prophets or even his People.

            All the above ANOMALIES and observations can be perfectly EXPLAINED and UNDERSTOOD when one comes to the simple CONCLUSION that the Quran is actually Muhammad’s own

            ALTER EGO

            projected into the unsuspecting mouth of Allah, the Rock god of the Ka’ba, the

            BLACK STONE.

    • Lucky bin COCCYDYNIA,
      Where is your counter argument against Islam? You did say that according to Muslims the Quran is Eternal.

      That IS correct….ALL Muslims believe that…every word of the Quran is ETERNAL. You are so….so correct!!! Where did a dumbie like you get that from, coccydynia??

      And why do you copy paste the same comments that you make over and over??

      Where is your counter argument after our replies to you?? You are so dumb that you DO NOT answer my questions, why STEATOPYGOUS?

        ISLAMIC SCHOLAR WHO SEXUALLY ABUSED GIRL, 11, AS HE TAUGHT HER THE KORAN SPARED JAIL BECAUSE HIS WIFE DOESN’T SPEAK ENGLISH
        March 19, 2014
        So this pedophile doesn’t serve time because his burka’ed wife doesn’t speak English well enough. The UK is done, cooked, over.
        I am surprised that the court didn’t cite Muhammad as the example. Next to Aisha, this terrified 11-year-old girl was an old-timer.
        This is dhimmitude. What crime would ever be excused because of extenuating circumstances at home? It is an affront to civilized men who live under rule of law. It is a crime against little girls and his future victims. It is another attack on that poor little girl. She is forever scarred by this Islamic scholar and the failure of the British criminal justice system to protect her and see that justice was served.
        I have not heard one Muslim cleric condemn this abuse, or this hafiz.
        “Islamic teacher who sexually abused girl, 11, as he taught her the Koran spared jail because his wife doesn’t speak English,” Daily Mail, [1]March 18, 2014 (thanks toDavid)
        • Suleman Maknojioa, 40, squeezed girl’s chest under her prayer scarf
        • Attacks took place as he gave lessons in Arabic to girl and her brothers
        • Father of six convicted of five counts of sexual activity with a child
        • He was handed a suspended sentence after judge told family rely on him
        AN Islamic teacher who repeatedly molested a terrified girl of 11 as he taught her the Koran has escaped a jail sentence because his wife’s English is so bad.
        Suleman Maknojioa, 40, repeatedly rubbed the youngster’s leg and reached under the folds of her prayer headscarf to touch her chest.
        He was given a suspended sentence because the court heard the father of six’s family were so dependent on him and he is ill with kidney problems.
        Maknojioa was supposed to be giving the girl and her two brothers private tuition.
        He was said to have favoured the girl and claimed the touching was done to reassure her.
        But his confused victim became terrified whenever [2]lessons were due.
        He was finally reported to police after the children’s mother overheard her two sons, aged 13 and seven, talking about the incidents.
        Maknojioa was a respected hafiz – a scholar of the Koran.
        On the day he was arrested he was due to teach 30 children at a mosque near his home in Blackburn.
        He was later convicted of five counts of sexual activity but on Monday he escaped with a 40-week prison sentence suspended for two years.
        A family friend condemned the sentence. ‘This is a total disgrace,’ said the friend, who asked not to be named.
        ‘What type of message does this send out to paedophiles? He should be behind bars for this type of abuse. We are all horrified.’
        Preston Crown Court was told Maknojioa had been engaged by the children’s parents in 2012 to teach them about the Islamic faith up to three times a week at their home in Lancashire.
        In September that year the girl and her two brothers started tuition of the Koran in Arabic in their living room.
        [3]
        The court heard she was better at her lessons than her brothers, who were often told off. Maknojioa began touching the girl’s arms and head, then moved to her legs, feet and chest and her thigh.
        The girl claimed that the touching typically occurred as she prayed or read from the Koran while kneeling or sitting cross-legged.
        She told the jury: ‘I was too afraid to say something. He would put his hand under my headscarf on my chest and he would squeeze.
        ‘He would only use the one hand. The other hand would be writing something or he would be pointing to my brothers and telling them to pray harder.
        ‘No matter how hard my brothers tried to pray it wasn’t good enough. He would always say I was better, even if I wasn’t.
        Convicted: Maknojioa was found guilty of five counts of sexual activity with a child
        +4
        Convicted: Maknojioa was found guilty of five counts of sexual activity with a child
        ‘My brothers asked me what he had been doing and I didn’t know how to describe it. I told them he had touched me up. They told me to tell Mum and Dad – but I just didn’t want to tell anyone.
        ‘It went on for ages, his hand going up and down. I was afraid of what my teacher would do.’
        Her older brother said: ‘I knew what was happening for about a month before my parents. My sister would get very upset at the idea of anyone knowing.
        It was difficult for me to know what to do. He favoured her. He would give her ten pages to learn and we would only get three.
        ‘That way he spent most of the lesson with her. He did it slyly. When it happened, she was trying to pray. I have seen him touching her thigh in a stroking motion. It was inappropriate.’
        This went on from September 2012 to June 2013 until the course of lessons ended. The girl’s father later confronted Maknojioa at his home but he denied all the charges.
        Frida Hussain, defending, said: ‘He is married with six children. His wife doesn’t work and speaks very little English, they are dependent on him to lead their lives and with the running of the household.
        ‘One of the children has learning difficulties. Because he doesn’t teach now he is reliant on benefits.’
        Judge Michael Byrne told Maknojioa: ‘The parents invited you into the sanctity of their own home. They trusted you and left you with their children.
        ‘I have read a letter from the girl in which she sets out her initial confusion at conduct of this sort from one…who she and her brother were expected to trust.
        ‘The older brother felt he wasn’t able to protect his sister. She was of a tender age, young, vulnerable and impressionable.
        ‘There could be no greater recognition of trust than between a minister of religion and pupils whose care is entrusted to him by parents.
        ‘You breached that trust deliberately and repeatedly.’
        Maknojioa will be under supervision for two years and made the subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order for ten years.

        INTELLIGENCE
        FAQ
        What is intelligence?
        Intelligence the intellectual ability to resolve new or complicated situations; the ability to learn from our experiences; the ability to adapt; the ability to correctly designate intrinsic connections and relationships, which help us to solve new problems and orient ourselves in situations that have occurred. It is likely the single most important and certainly the most studied of all the abilities that modern psychology recognizes. An intelligence quotient, IQ, is a way to measure
        intelligence.
        What is an intelligence quotient (IQ)?
        An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a number that describes a person’s intelligence in relation to the rest of the population.
        What is an average IQ?
        An IQ in the 90 to 110 range, which roughly 50% of the population has, is considered an average IQ.
        What levels of intelligence exist?
        above 140: Genius intelligence – absolute characteristics for creative activities,
        designates the direction of learning for others (0.2%)
        up to 140 Exceptional superior intelligence – extraordinary characteristics
        for creative activities, excellent managers or specialists (2.8%)
        up to 130 Highly above average intelligence – easily completes university level
        studies, can achieve outstanding results in creative or managerial activities (6%)
        up to 120 Above-average intelligence – completes university studies, with a
        good work ethic, can obtain a very good job (12%)
        up to 110 High average intelligence – completes university studies with difficulty.
        With consistency and hard work, a person at this level can obtain the
        social classification of the preceding category (25%)
        up to 100 Average intelligence – is able to pass graduation exams, fills a mid-level
        work position (25%)
        up to 90 Slightly below-average intelligence – can complete basic education and works well in manual professions (10%)
        up to 80 Borderline low intelligence – completes basic education with
        difficulty, successful in a special school (10%)
        up to 70 Moron, low intelligence – if he/she is guided well, completes special school
        (6.8%)
        up to 50 Idiocy, middle degree of low intelligence – un-teachable, but adopts
        self-sufficient habits (2%)
        up to 20 Imbecility, severe low intelligence – un-teachable and un-trainable
        (0.2%)
        Why is this IQ test better than other IQ tests?
        Because, thanks to many already tested individuals, it has the ability to
        much more accurately measure IQ when compared to other IQ tests.
        MUSLIM INBREEDING IN GREAT BRITAIN CAUSING MASSIVE SURGE IN BIRTH DEFECTS
        Referring to the culture of Muslim arranged marriages between cousins, environment minister Phil Woolas said: “If you have a child with your cousin the likelihood is there’ll be a genetic problem.”
        According to today’s Sunday Times, the minister, who represents Oldham East and Saddleworth said ”If you talk to any primary care worker they will tell you that
        levels of disability among the . . . Pakistani population are higher than the
        general population. And everybody knows it’s caused by first cousin marriage.
        “It’s very difficult for people to say ‘you can’t do that’ because it’s a very sensitive, human thing.” (Now there’s a liberal apologist if ever I heard one)“Awareness does need to be raised but we are very aware of the sensitivities,” he added.
        If you go into a paediatric ward in Bradford or Keighley you will find more than half of the kids there are from the Asian (MUSLIM) community. Since Asians only represent 20 per cent-30 per cent of the population, you can see that they are over represented. I have encountered cases of blindness and deafness. There was one poor girl who had to have an oxygen tank on her back and breathe from a hole in the front of her neck.
        The parents were warned they should not have any more children. But when the husband returned again from Pakistan, within months they had another child with exactly the same condition. (You can lead a camel to water….)
        Research for BBC2′s Newsnight in November 2005 showed British Pakistanis accounted for 3.4 per cent of all births but have 30 per cent of all British children with recessive disorders. UK DAILY MAIL
        INCEST IN ISLAM
        Introduction
        The Oxford Dictionary defines incest as sexual intercourse of near relations.
        Elaborating on this Encyclopaedia Britannica (CD ROM version) writes:
        Generally speaking, the closer the genetic relationship between two people, the stronger and more highly charged is the taboo prohibiting or discouraging sexual relations between them. Thus, sexual intercourse between a father and daughter, a mother and son, or a brother and sister is almost universally forbidden. Sexual relations between an uncle and niece or between an aunt and nephew are also generally taboo, and relations between first cousins are prohibited as well in some societies.
        On the harmful effect of incestuous relation Encyclopaedia Britannica also writes:
        Highly inbred populations have diminished reproductive success and become gene pools for hereditary disorders.
        Incest in the Qur’an: Marriage between father and his biological daughter
        Muslims will find it hard to believe that Allah in the Qur’an has violated the universal condemnation of incest. Let us read verse 4:23 24 which lists the categories of women that a Muslim man may not marry.
        004.023 (Yusuf Ali)
        YUSUFALI: Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters; father’s sisters, Mother’s sisters; brother’s daughters, sister’s daughters; foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives’ mothers; your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;-
        004.024
        YUSUFALI: Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.
        One might think that verse 4:23 specifically prohibits a man from marrying (that is, to have sex) with his biological daughter. However, this may not be so. Hashim Kamali, one of the most eminent scholars of Islamic Jurisprudence and currently the Professor of Islamic Law and Jurisprudence at International Islamic University Malaysia writes:
        An example of the zanni in the Qur’an is the text which reads, ‘prohibited to you are your mothers and your daughters’ (al Nisa’ 4:23). The text is definitive in regard to the prohibition of marriage with one’s mother and daughter and there is no disagreement on this point. However, the word banatakum (‘your daughters’) could be taken for its literal meaning, which would be a female child born to a person either through marriage or through zina, or for its juridical meaning. In the latter sense ‘banatukum’ can only mean a legitimate daughter.
        The jurists are in disagreement as to which of these meanings should be read into text. The Hanafis have upheld the first of the two meanings and have ruled on the prohibition of marriage to one’s illegitimate daughter, whereas the Shafis have upheld the second. According to this interpretation, marriage with one’s illegitimate daughter is not forbidden as the text only refers to a daughter through marriage. It would follow from this that the illegitimate daughter has no right to inheritance, and the rules of guardianship and custody would not apply to her. (Hashim Kamali, pp. 21 23)
        Note: The Qur’an scholars divide the Qur’anic verses into two classes: qati—definitive, no speculation and zanni—speculative. Even the eminent Sharia expert Professor Hashim Kamali admits that the Qur’an is ambiguous. (Hashim Kamali, p. 33.)
        This will be a bombshell to the Muslims. Hashim Kamali testifies that at least one sect of Islam (that is, Shafi) allows a Muslim man to marry his biological daughter and have sex with her if the daughter has been born illegitimate.
        We may wonder how a Muslim man could have an illegitimate daughter since in Islam all sex out of marriage, except sex with one’s sex-slaves, is forbidden. Let us ponder on the following situations:
        A Muslim unmarried man has sex with a Muslim unmarried woman.
        The woman gives birth to a daughter. Because of their Zina, both of them receive one hundred lashes. The punishment over, they depart—going their own way, or they decide to marry, but the daughter remains illegitimate. When the daughter turns eight or ten the biological father marries his daughter.
        This incestuous marriage is allowed by the Shafi rule, according to professor Kamali. If they are Hanafi or other sect the father may not marry the illegitimate daughter.
        A Muslim unmarried man (of Shafii sect) has sex with a Kafir woman. She gives birth to a daughter. The father receives the Islamic lashing. The woman may go scot free depending on which Islamic country she resides, because in some Islamic countries non Muslims are exempt from Sharia laws. The illegitimate daughter lives with her mother. When the illegitimate daughter turns eight or more she becomes halal for her biological father. He marries his biological daughter.
        A Muslim unmarried man commits adultery with a married Muslim woman. She becomes pregnant. As per Sharia law the man receives one hundred lashes and the woman is sentenced to be stoned to death. However, her stoning is postponed until she gives birth to her child and weans the baby of breastfeeding. This condemned woman gives birth to a daughter. At age two the baby girl is taken away from her mother. Then the mother is stoned to death. The hapless child may be sheltered in a foster home or even live with her biological father. When the daughter turns eight her biological father marries her.
        Let us ponder on what might happen if a Hanafi unmarried man has illicit sex with a Shafi married woman
        Presumably, Malaysia follows Shafi, Bangladesh follows Hanafi.
        Malaysian married Muslim woman + Bangladesh unmarried man = Zina and adultery.

        Malaysia’s religious police catch them in action. Both of them receive Islamic punishment as per Shafi law. The woman may not receive stoning–as it is not enforced in Malaysia.

        The woman gives birth to a girl–this is the illegitimate daughter to the man. Let us call her daughter A.

        What about the woman? Will the daughter be illegitimate to the mother? As per Islamic rule, yes. Later, the woman’s husband divorces her. She moves on, along with her illegitimate daughter.

        The sex offender man marries the woman. May be, the wife gives birth to another daughter–this time legitimate. Call this daughter B.
        Now, as per Islamic Law can we say A and B are sisters? Nope.
        The entire family lives under one roof.

        When A, the illegitimate daughter, turns 8 or more, the biological father marries her.
        He now has two wives–his sex partner wife + his own illegitimate daughter. That is, the man is simultaneously married to the mother and the daughter.

        So, Islamically, he may have sex with his biological daughter and her mother—perfectly legal as per Shafi rule.
        I am not sure if this incidence happened, say in Bangladesh or India or Pakistan, what would happen as these countries follow Hanafi Muslim laws.
        We must remember when a Muslim lives in Malaysia whether he is a Malaysian citizen or not he must abide by the Islamic Sharia of Malaysia which is largely Shafi.
        SEX BETWEEN SONS & THEIR FATHER’S CONCUBINES
        Stepping further on verse 4:23 24, it may even be Islamically possible for a son to have sexual intercourse with his father’s concubines or father’s sex partners. In this case the mother is not a biological mother, but still a mother, no matter what—just as step mother.
        On the restrictions women who can be married as depicted in 4:23-24 Maulana Maududi writes:
        The word ‘mother’ applies to one’s step-mother as well as to one’s real mother. Hence the prohibition extends to both. This injunction also includes prohibition of the grandmother, both paternal and maternal. There is disagreement on whether a woman with whom a father has had an unlawful sexual relationship is prohibited to his son or not. There are some among the early authorities who do not believe in such prohibition. But there are others who go so far as to say that a woman whom a father has touched with sexual desire becomes prohibited to the son. (Maududi 4/34.)
        INCESTUOUS MARRIAGES AMONG CLOSE BLOOD RELATIONS
        Here is another verse from the Qur’an that may suggest that incestuous marriages are permissible in Islam.
        025.054
        YUSUFALI: It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord has power (over all things).
        Eminent tafsir writer Jalalyn writes:
        And it is He who created human beings from water (sperm) and then gave them relations by blood and marriage—because men and women marry to seek progeny. Your Lord is All Powerful, possessing the power to do whatever He wills. (Tafsir Jalalyn, Tr. Aisha Bewley, p. 781).
        Some scholars say this verse allows Muslim men to have sex with their daughters [incest]: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAaf83RVtvM&feature=related or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2pLbhrl3ZY)
        (Reader may find the video has been removed from the first link. When I tested I found the second link working.)
        MARRIAGE BETWEEN FATHER-IN-LAW & WIFE OF AN ADOPTED SON
        In the Arab society in which Muhammad lived the tradition of adoption was noble and sanctified. Their adopted sons were like their own biological sons and the wives of adopted sons were like their own daughter-in-laws.
        Zayd bin Haritha was Muhammad’s adopted son. Muhammad even got Zayd married to his (Muhammad’s) cousin sister Zaynab bt. Jahsh (Tabari, p. ix.134). But later, when Muhammad saw her beauty and sex appeal, he became passionate to have sex with her.
        In the Arab society this kind of marriage between father-in-law and daughter-in-law, whether of adopted son or not, was considered incestuous.
        But Muhammad did not care. He sought Allah’s help, and Allah promptly sent down appropriate verses to let Muhammad satisfy his desire. Zaynab became Muhammad’s eighth wife. Accordingly, Allah also changed the adoption rule—He permitted Muslims to marry their adopted sons’ wives after they obtain divorce from their husbands (33:37). Even Tabari and Waqidi admit that Muhammad married his cousin sister Zaynab bt Jahsh out of last (Tabari, p. viii. xii). Here is what the eminent Islamic historian Tabari writes about this ‘incestuous’ marriage of Muhammad.
        Muhammad had uncontrolled fascination for Zaynab bt. Jahsh
        The Messenger of God came to the house of Zayd b. Harithah. (Zayd was always called Zayd b. Muhammad.) Perhaps the Messenger of God missed him at that moment, so as to ask, “Where is Zayd?” He came to his residence to look for him but did not find him. Zaynab bt. Jahsh, Zayd’s wife, rose to look for him but did not find him. Because she was dressed only in a shift, the Messenger of God turned away from her. She said: “He is not here, Messenger of God. Come in, you are as dear to me as my father and mother!” The Messenger of God refused to enter. Zaynab had dressed in haste where she was told “the Messenger of God is at the door.” She jumped up in haste and excited the admiration of the Messenger of God, so that he turned away murmuring something that could scarcely be understood. However, he did say overtly: “Glory be to God the Almighty! Glory be to God, who causes hearts to turn!” (Tabari, p. viii.2)
        While the Messenger of God was talking with A’ishah, a fainting overcame him. When he was released from it, he smiled and said, “Who will go to Zaynab to tell her the good news, saying that God has married her to me?” Then the Messenger of God recited: “And when you said unto him on whom God has conferred favor and you have conferred favor, “Keep your wife to yourself…” (Quran 33:37)—and the entire passage. (ibid, p. viii.3)
        INBREEDING: COUSIN MARRIAGES
        In Islam cousin marriage is quite popular and widely acceptable. Cousin marriages, especially among first cousins, are a potentially harmful practice because the children born out of such marriages suffer from many genetic disorders. A comprehensive article about this debilitating practice among Muslims can be read here:
        http://www.islammonitor.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3910:muslim-inbreeding-impacts-on-intelligence-sanity-health-and-society&catid=294:social-practices-interactions&Itemid=61
        Let us find out why Muslims are more likely to indulge in first cousin marriage than other communities.
        033.050
        YUSUFALI: O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
        This verse unabashedly permitted Muhammad to have sex with his first cousin sisters even without marrying them. Why Allah permitted Muhammad to indulge in such a reckless incestuous relationship? For the answer, we need to know the context of this verse. A hadis in Tirmidhi (print version) tells us this:
        Muhammad proposed Umm Hani, his cousin sister, to marry him. She declined. So Allah revealed that Muhammad could have sex with his cousin sisters who had migrated to Medina without marrying them (33:50). Umm Hani said though she was Muhammad’s cousin sister, Muhammad could not have sex with her as she did not migrate to Medina. She only embraced Islam after Muhammad had conquered Mecca. (Daif)…(Tirmidhi 5.3214)
        Here is the complete Hadis:
        Tirmidhi, vol. 5, Hadis 3214, p. 522
        Umm Hani bint Abu Talib said: “The Messenger of Allah proposed to me, but I asked him to excuse me, so he did excuse me. Then Allah [Most High] revealed: “Verily We have made lawful to you your wives, to whom you have paid their due, and those whom your right hands possess—whom Allah has given to you, and the daughters of your paternal uncles, and the daughters paternal aunts and the daughters of your maternal uncles, and the daughters of your maternal aunts, who migrated with you, and a believing woman, if she offers herself to the Prophet… (33:50). She said: “So I was not lawful for him because I did not perform Hijrah; I was one of the Tulaqa.(Daif)
        [Abu ‘Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan [Sahih] we do not know of it except from this route as a narration of As Suddi
        [In a footnote the translator describes the Tulaqa are those who accepted Islam after the conquest of Makkah.]
        The readers should note that Abu ‘Eisa is Imam Tirmidhi’s kunya (that is, father of ‘Eisa). According to Imam Tirmidhi this Hadis is Hasan, meaning it is a reliable Hadis.
        Umm Hani was the daughter of Abu Taleb, Muhammad’s uncle. AbuTaleb brought up Muhammad in his home. Muhammad fell deeply in love with Umm Hani, but was greatly aggrieved when he asked to marry her but Abu Taleb refused. This meant Abu Taleb, a Meccan pagan, did not like first cousin marriage. But, as demonstrated in the above verse, Allah found a way to satisfy Muhammad’s desire to have sex with his old flame.
        The truth was: although Allah said in the verse that those of Muhammad’s first cousin sisters who had migrated with him to Medina were eligible to have sex with him, Muhammad never followed Allah’s instruction. The great Islamic scholar Maulana Maududi writes:
        The ladies from among his first cousins, who emigrated along with him. The words “who emigrated with you” do not mean that they accompanied the Holy Prophet in his migration journey but this that they also had migrated in the way of Allah for the sake of Islam. The Holy Prophet was given the choice to marry any one of them he liked. Accordingly, in A.H. 7 he married Hadrat Umm Habibah. (Incidentally, in this verse it has been elucidated that the daughters of one’s paternal and maternal uncles and aunts are lawful for a Muslim. In this regard the Islamic Law is different both from the Christian Law and from the Jewish Law. Among the Christians one cannot marry a woman whose line of descent joins one’s own anywhere in the last seven generations, and among the Jews it is permissible even to marry one’s real niece, i.e. daughter of one’s brother or sister. (Maududi 33/87.)
        To justify the marriage between first cousins among Muslims, Maulana Maududi cites irrelevant matters of the Jews and the Christians. While currently, the first cousin marriage among the Jews and the Christians is indeed rare, the same may not be true for the Muslims as the statistics from the above article demonstrates.
        In fact, Dr. Mahathir the former Prime Minister of Malaysia was so concerned about the first cousin marriages among the Muslims in Malaysia that he wrote a book, The Malay Dilemma. In this book Dr Mahathir postulated that one of the main reasons for the absolute backwardness of Malays is due to their practice of in breeding. He was a medical professional. He wrote that because of in breeding the Malays have a very limited genetic pool.
        Here are a few excerpts from Dr Mahathir’s book The Malay Dilemma.
        Generally speaking, modern ideas on the evolution of man are not acceptable to Muslims and therefore to Malays. But even Malays admit that certain characteristics are passed from parents to offspring. “Bapak borek, anak beritek” is a well known Malay saying which means “A spotted father begets a speckled son.” The meaning is obvious. If this is so for an individual then hereditary influence must play a role in the development of a collection of individuals which constitutes a race. What is not generally known by the Malays is the effect of in breeding.
        In this book I have explained how the laws of genetics, which govern the transmission of hereditary characteristics, are affected adversely by in breeding and other marriage practices.
        There has been a lot of scientific thinking on the subject of in breeding and the effect on human society. Cyril Dean Darlington, a British geneticist, in his book, The Evolution of Man and Society, takes the extreme view that the evolution of human society is the product of genes. According to him, civilizations flourish and decay in obedience to genetic decrees. He pointed out that once a ruling class fixed itself in power, it sought to conserve that power by in breeding, thus denying the infusion of fresh stock. It was this habit, according to Darligton, that expedited the decline of the Pharaohs, the Ptolemies and the Caesars.
        This interesting hypothesis is perhaps too extreme to be generally accepted even by non Muslims. In any case, Darligton was referring mainly to incest, a practice which is unknown among the Malays. However, the modern definition of in breeding includes marriages between first cousins and other close relatives, a practice fairly common among the Malays. Hereditary influence also produces an adverse effect in a society which, abhorring celibacy, insists that everyone, fit or unfit, should marry. Thus, the deformed in mind and body are somehow paired off and reproduce.
        While it must be admitted that inbreeding is not general among the Malays, what cannot be denied is that the instances of in breeding are greater among them than among the other major races in Malaysia—the Chinese. In fact Chinese marriage customs specifically prevents in breeding. And so it is correct to say that in breeding together with forced marriages of the unfit produce a much greater percentage of human failures among Malays as compared with other races.
        This explanation is offered in mitigation and defense of my views. Nevertheless it is not expected that they will be easily accepted. The implications are too depressing and hold no promise of easy or rapid remedies. (Dr Mahathir Mohamad, The Malay Dilemma, p. 1, 2.)
        Mendel’s law states that offspring are not intermediate in type between the two parents, but that the type of one or the other is predominant according to a fixed law. The importance of this law lies in its rejection of the popular concept that offspring must be a dilution of the opposing characters of the parents.
        Mendels’s Law is best illustrated by experiments in breeding white and brown mice. Provided that a sufficiently large series of experiments is carried out, the mating of white and brown mice will produce not spotted or brownish white mice but white mice predominantly. But if this (sic) first generation of white mice are mated among themselves, the offspring are not all white but a mixture of pure white and pure brown in the proportion of three whites to one brown. The point this illustrates is that white is a dominant characteristic which shows up in the first generation. However, even though the first generation appears pure white, it has a hidden brown factor which is transmissible to the next generation. But this brown factor is weak as shown by the fact that only one in four of the second generation is brown in colour. (Dr Mahathir Mohamad, The Malay Dilemma, p. 17)
        A dominant characteristic tends to cancel a recessive characteristic, and it is clear that if the parents have different sets of dominant characteristics, then the offspring will have a combination of all the dominant characteristics of the parents. It follows therefore that the best offspring are those resulting from parents with different good dominant characteristics. Thus since close relatives tend to resemble each other and the chances of carrying similar recessive characteristics are greater, marriage between such relatives will not produce the best offspring. On the other hand, as unrelated people have more differences in characteristic, a marriage between such people would tend to produce ideal offspring with good dominant characteristics of both parents, while the recessive characteristics are cancelled. (Dr Mahathir Mohamad, The Malay Dilemma, p. 18 19)
        Predictably, after the first publication of The Malay Dilemma, the Malaysian Government banned it, and Dr Mahathir was expelled from the Malaysia’s most dominant Muslim party UMNO (United Malays National Organisation). Malaysian Law stipulates that all Malays are, by definition, Muslims. A few years later, Dr Mahathir was again admitted into UMNO, and he finally became the UMNO president, but his book The Malay Dilemma remained proscribed. Only after Dr Mahathir became the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the ban on this controversial book was lifted, and republished in 1981.
        Admittedly, Dr Mahathir is very knowledgeable in genetics and his courage to tell the truth is admirable.
        But Dr Mahathir did not have the supreme intrepidity to blame the genetic root of Malay backwardness to Islam—more precisely that the Malays, being deeply Islamic religious, are simply following Islamic rules on first cousin marriage and emulating their prophet, Muhammad. Dr Mahathir was too fearful to be seen as anti islam. He blamed the Malays for their proclivity towards in breeding and not Islam. It was too dangerous for him to do so.
        CONCLUSION:
        Like it or not, Incest in Islam is alive and kicking well as can be illustrated from several verses of the Qur’an. The various interpretations, often contradictory, just prove that these words could not be from Allah. Allah cannot be so dim-witted not to know what is best for His Ummah. All knowing, almighty Allah cannot be so careless that He would leave His words in such a manner that what one group of Muslims means to be halal may be death to another group of Muslims. The topic of incest in Islam is such a dangerous game. It also possible that the inherent backward of the Muslim in general might be rooted in their limited genetic pool because of incestuous marriage practiced in many Islamic nation.

        MUSLIM INBREEDING:
        IMPACTS ON INTELLIGENCE, SANITY, HEALTH & SOCIETY
        Thursday, 25 November 2010 Nicolai Sennels
        Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the offspring’s intelligence, sanity, health and on their surroundings
        The most famous example of inbreeding is in ancient Egypt, where several Pharaonic dynasties collapsed after a couple of hundred years. In order to keep wealth and power within the family, the Pharaohs often married their own sister or half-sister and after a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule. Another historical example is the royal houses of Europe where royal families often married among each other because tradition did not allow them to marry people of non-royal class.
        The high amount of mentally retarded and handicapped royalties throughout European history shows the unhealthy consequences of this practice. Luckily, the royal families have now allowed themselves to marry for love and not just for status.
        The Muslim culture still practices inbreeding and has been doing so for longer than any Egyptian dynasty. This practice also predates the world’s oldest monarchy (the Danish) by 300 years.
        A rough estimate shows that close to half of all Muslims in the world are inbred: In Pakistan, 70 percent of all marriages are between first cousins (so-called “consanguinity”) and in Turkey the amount is between 25-30 percent (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 More stillbirths among immigrants”
        Statistical research on Arabic countries shows that up to 34 percent of all marriages in Algiers are consanguine (blood related), 46 percent in Bahrain, 33 percent in Egypt, 80 percent in Nubia (southern area in Egypt), 60 percent in Iraq, 64 percent in Jordan, 64 percent in Kuwait, 42 percent in Lebanon, 48 percent in Libya, 47 percent in Mauritania, 54 percent in Qatar, 67 percent in Saudi Arabia, 63 percent in Sudan, 40 percent in Syria, 39 percent in Tunisia, 54 percent in the United Arabic Emirates and 45 percent in Yemen (Reproductive Health Journal, 2009 Consanguinity and reproductive health among Arabs.).
        A large part of inbred Muslims are born from parents who are themselves inbred – which increase the risks of negative mental and physical consequenses greatly.
        The amount of blood related marriages is lower among Muslim immigrants living in the West. Among Pakistanis living in Denmark the amount is down to 40 percent and 15 percent among Turkish immigrants (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 More stillbirths among immigrants”.).
        More than half of Pakistani immigrants living in Britain are intermarried:
        Smile twists across Kaled Assoum’s face. Lying in his cot, he gurgles happily as his mother, Randa, tickles his belly and kisses him on the face. The eight-year-old, pictured above with his grandmother, was born with severe intellectual and physical disabilities. He cannot walk, talk, and feeds through a tube in his stomach. He has the mental capacity of a one-year-old. FROM The Sun-Herald (Sydney, 28th May, 2006), pages 79-80
        The research, conducted by the BBC and broadcast to a shocked nation on Tuesday, found that at least 55% of the community was married to a first cousin. This is thought to be linked to the probability that a British Pakistani family is at least 13 times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive genetic disorders.” (Times of India, 17/11 2005 Ban UK Pakistanis from marrying cousins).
        The lower percentages might be because it is difficult to get the chosen family member to the country, or because health education is better in the West.
        LOW INTELLIGENCE
        Several studies show that children of consanguineous marriages have lower intelligence than children of non-related parents. Research shows that the IQ is 10-16 points lower in children born from related parents and that abilities related to social behavior develops slower in inbred babies:
        “Effects of parental consanguinity on the cognitive and social behavior of children have been studied among the Ansari Muslims of Bhalgapur, Bihar.
        IQ in inbred children (8-12 years old) is found to be lower (69 in rural and 79 in suburban populations) than that of the outbred ones (79 and 95 respectively). The onset of various social profiles like visual fixation, social smile, sound seizures, oral expression and hand-grasping are significantly delayed among the new-born inbred babies.” (Indian National Science Academy, 1983 Consanguinity Effects on Intelligence Quotient and Neonatal Behaviours of nsari Muslim Children”).
        The article “Effects of inbreeding on Raven Matrices” concludes that “Indian Muslim school boys, ages 13 to 15 years, whose parents are first cousins, were compared with classmates whose parents are genetically unrelated on the Raven Standard Progressive Matrices, a nonverbal test of intelligence. The inbred group scored significantly lower and had significantly greater variance than the non-inbred group, both on raw scores and on scores statistically adjusted to control for age and socioeconomic status.” (Behaviour Genetics, 1984).
        Another study shows that the risk of having an IQ lower than 70 goes up 400 percent from 1.2 percent in children from normal parents to 6.2 percent in inbred children: “The data indicate that the risk for mental retardation in matings of normal parents increases from 0.012 with random matings to 0.062 for first-cousin parentage.” (Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, 1978 Effect of inbreeding on IQ and mental retardation”). The study A study of possible deleterious effects of consanguinity concludes, that “The occurrence of malignancies, congenital abnormalities, mental retardation and physical handicap was significantly higher in offspring of consanguineous than non-consanguineous marriages.”

        MENTAL & PHYSICAL DISEASES & DEATH
        The risk of stillbirth doubles when parents are first cousins (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 More stillbirths among immigrants). One study analyzed the risk of perinatal death (the child dies during its own birth), infant death (child dies while still infant) and autosomal recessive disorders (serious and often deadly genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy):
        Perinatal mortality in the Pakistani children was 1.5 times higher than that in the Norwegian children, and infant mortality in the Pakistani children was more than double that in the Norwegian children. Deaths due to autosomal recessive disorders were 18 times more common in the Pakistani children. Similarly, deaths due to multiple malformations, which may be part of unrecognized autosomal recessive syndromes, were 10 times more common.
        (BMJ, 1994 Infant death and consanguineous marriage.)
        There are also evidence suggesting that inbred people has a higher risk of developing mental disorders: “The clinical observations indicated that depression is very high in some communities where the consanguinity of marriages is also high.” (Indian Journal of Psychiatry, 2009 “Relationship between consanguinity and depression in a south Indian population”.
        Another study focused on the relationship between intermarriage and schizophrenia: “The closer the blood relative, the more likely was there to be a schizophrenic illness.” (American Psychiatric Press, 1982 The role of genetic factors in the ethiology of the schizophrenic disorders.
        The increased risk of insanity among children of marriages between cousins might explain why immigrant patients are stressing the psychiatric system and are strongly overrepresented among insane criminals: “In Sct. Hans Hospital, which has the biggest ward for clinically insane criminals in Denmark, more than 40 percent of the patients have an immigrant background.” (Kristeligt Dagblad, 26/6 2007 Ethnic minorities overrepresented among the criminal insane).

        IMPLICATIONS FOR THE WESTERN & MUSLIM WORLD
        Kaled’d father Mohammed says: “From the beginning I was a bit sad and she was abased. She started crying but I said in the end we can’t do anything. That’s how God created him. Even if we cry from now on until 100 years, you can’t do anything .” FROM The Sun-Herald (Sydney, 28th May, 2006), pages 79-80
        The consequences for offspring of consanguineous marriages are unpleasantly clear: Death, low intelligence or even mental retardation, handicaps and diseases often leading to a slow and painful death. Other consequences are:
        Limited social skills and understanding, limited ability to manage education and work procedures and painful treatment procedures. The negative cognitive consequences also influence the executive functions. The impairment of concentration and emotional control most often leads to anti-social behavior.
        The economic costs and consequences for society of inbreeding are of course secondary to the reality of human suffering.
        However, inbreeding among Muslims has severe implications for both the Western societies and the Muslim world.
        Expenses related to mentally and physically handicapped Muslim immigrants drains the budget for other public services: “When cousins have children together, they are twice as likely to have a disabled child – it costs municipal funds dearly. Disabled immigrant children costs Danish municipalities millions. In Copenhagen County alone, the number of disabled children in the overall increase of 100 percent at 10 years. … Meredith Lefelt has contacted 330 families with disabled children in Copenhagen. She estimates that one third of their clients have a foreign cultural background.” (BT, 10/11 2003 Immigrants inbreeding costing one million.
        On top come the expenses for Muslim immigrants who – because of different consequences of being born from blood related parents – are not able to live up to the challenges of our Western work market: Muslim immigrants and their descendants in Europe have a very high rate of unemployment.
        The same goes for Muslims in USA, where the Gallup Institute made a study involving 300.000 people concluding “The majority of Muslims in USA have a lower income, are less educated and have worse jobs than the population as a whole.” (Berlingske Tidende, d. 3. marts 2009: Muslims thrive in USA.
        The cognitive consequences of Muslim inbreeding might explain why non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the Danish army’s intelligence test than native Danes: “19.3% of non-Western immigrants are not able to pass the Danish army’s intelligence test. In comparison, only 4.7% of applicants with Danish background do not pass.” (TV 2 Nyhederne, 13/6 2007 Immigrants flunk army test.
        It probably also explains – at least partly – why two thirds of all immigrant school children with Arabic backgrounds are illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system: “Those who speak Arabic with their parents have an extreme tendency to lack reading abilities – 64 percent are illiterate. … No matter if it concerns reading abilities, mathematics or science, the pattern is the same: The bilingual (largely Muslim) immigrants’ skills are exceedingly poor compared to their Danish classmates.” (Rockwool Foundation Research Unit, May 2007: Ethnic students does not make Danish children worse.
        The high expenses on special education for slow learners consumes one third of the budget for the Danish schools. “Immigrant children are clearly overrepresented on Copenhagen’s schools for retarded children and children with physical handicaps. … 51 percent of the children on the three schools in Copenhagen for children with physical and mental handicaps har immigrant back ground and on one of the schools the amount is 70 percent. … These amounts are significantly higher than the share of immigrant children in the municipality, which is 33 percent. The many handicapped children are a clear evidence that there are many intermarried parents in the immigrant families.” (Jydske Vestkysten, 4/4 2009 Tosprogede i overtal på handicapskoler).
        Our high level of education may also make it harder for inbred students to follow and finish their studies: “Young people with minority backgrounds have a significantly higher dropout rate at secondary schools than youth with a Danish background. For trade school education, the dropout rate among immigrants is 60 percent, twice as high among adolescents with a Danish background….
        There is great variation in educational outcomes when compared with national origin. For example, dropout among young people with Lebanese or Iranian background is far greater than among people of Vietnamese background.” (Center for Knowledge on Integration in Randers, May 2005 “Youth, education and integration“). ”Among immigrant children that are born and raised in Denmark, more than a third has no education. Among native Danes it is less than one fifth that do not get an education. (Statistics Denmark: “Indvandrere i 2007”.
        The negative consequences of inbreeding are also vast for the Muslim world. Inbreeding may thus explain why only nine Muslims ever managed to receive the prestigious Nobel Prize (5 of them won the “Peace Prize” – for peace that turned out not to last for very long).
        The limited ability to understand, appreciate and produce knowledge following a limited IQ is probably also partly the reason why Muslim countries produce 1/10 of the World average when it comes to scientific research: “In 2003, the world average for production of articles per million inhabitants was 137, whereas none of the 47 OIC countries for which there were data achieved production above 107 per million inhabitants. The OIC average was just 13.” (Nature 444, p. 26-27, 1. November 2006 ”Islam and science: The data gap”.
        The lack of interest in science and human development in the Muslim World is also clear in the UN Arab Human Development Reports (AHDR). AHDR concludes that there have been fewer books translated into Arabic in the last thousand years than the amount of books translated within the country of Spain every year:
        “The Arab world translates about 330 books annually, one fifth of the number that Greece translates. The cumulative total of translated books since the Caliph Maa’moun’s [sic] time (the ninth century) is about 100,000, almost the average that Spain translates in one year.” (Eugene Rogan ”Arab Books and human development”. Index of Censorship, vol. 33, issue 2 April 2004, p. 152-157). “70 percent of the Turkish citizens never read books.”(APA, 23 February 2009 “).

        CONCLUSION
        There is no doubt that the wide spread tradition of first cousin marriages among Muslims has harmed the gene pool among Muslims. Because Muslims’ religious beliefs prohibit marrying non-Muslims and thus prevents them from adding fresh genetic material to their population, the genetic damage done to their gene pool since their prophet allowed first cousin marriages 1,400 years ago are most likely massive. The overwhelming direct and indirect human and societal consequences have been explained above.
        Compassion for the health of future generations should be enough to ban intermarriage among first cousins. The economic and societal consequences do also count. Such a ban would also lessen Muslim immigration to the West because many Muslim families would like to be able to continue their practice of intermarriage in order to live up to cultural and religious traditions and keep wealth and power inside their family.
        A legislative ban on first cousin marriages is a logical and compassionate imperative for both the Muslim world, for EU and our Western national governments.

      • Lucky bin Lucifer, and finally the followers of Islam are called Muslims and NOT Muhammadans. So, how does Islam become a Cult, MUFUGLY?

        • THE PERFECT MUSLIM

          THE PERFECT EXAMPLE FOR MANKIND

          EVERYONE SHOULD DO WHAT THIS PERFECT MAN DID:

          ALLAH SAID:

          And surely thou hast sublime morals
          (Surat Al-Qalam 68:4).

          Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar
          (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:21).

          Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly.
          Muslims claim Muhammad to be the “Best of Creation, God’s Last Messenger, Perfect & Ideal Man supposed to be followed by all mankind”.

          Interestingly, it is Muhammad himself who is attributing these divine-traits of “last messenger, best of creation” to himself. This self-inflated ego & narcissistic behavior speaks a lot of the spiritual excellence & comparison of Muhammad with other self-less enlightened souls such as Nanak, Buddha and other high intellectuals of history. In any case, Mohammed has successfully made his followers believe that his spoken word, recorded in the Qur’an, is the verbatim word of Allah, hence its contents are true and therefore the divine proof that Muhammad really is the “last messenger & perfect man to lead all mankind” because the Qur’an says so. This circular logic a child can expose, but not Muslims.

          In order to make our world free of Islamic terrorism and ghastly infidel slaughter, Exposing and creating awareness on Muhammad is important. Most Muslims know nothing about the personal accomplishments & biography of Muhammad other than the oft-repeated cliché

          “Muhammad is the perfect & last messenger of God, and is the best of creation better than all other prophets who came before & after Mohammed”.

          This is what Muslims are brought up believing right from childhood, and that is the limits of what they will ever know about Muhammad’s’ life. The interesting thing is that almost every detail of Muhammad’s’ life is available to us from Islamic texts such as Hadith, Sira’s and the Qur’an. Which hand he used for drinking, which foot he first used to enter washroom, which wife he slept on which day, in what manner he slaughtered infidels, what armor he wore when he went on attacking Arabian tribes, even his peculiar habits such as using female eye-liner (surma) and using hair-color (henna) are recorded in the hadiths. The most important point that emerges from the study of Hadiths & sira’s is that there was always a perfect co-incidence of timing of Allah’s’ revelation with Muhammad’s’ wants. For example, if Muhammad wants to sleep with one slave girl but not the wife with whom he earlier promised to sleep, he would invoke Allah’s’ intervention to reveal a new verse to allow him to fulfill his sexual desires. Muhammad’s’ numerous sexual scandals such as marriage to a 6 year old girl are well known.

          Lets study another incident of Muhammad’s’ pedophilia.

          According to one Hadith no. 16245, Chapter title “Hadith of Mu’awiya Ibn Abu Sufyan”, Mohammed sucked the tongue & lips of little boy Hassan. There are numerous other verses in which the Muslims of his time have reported Muhammad would suck tongues & lips of little boys. At that time Muslims were so blinded that they think this was an act of Mohammed’s’ generosity. Even today when Muslim scholars are confronted with this hadith, their most favorite response is that Muhammad was so pious that he even donated his “holy saliva” to quench the little boys’ thirst in the dry lands of Arabia.

          Similarly when confronted with the fact that Mohammed married 6 year old girl year old Ayesha and would rub his penis (“thighing”) between her thighs until he ejaculated because she was too small to be penetrated; Muslim apologists respond by saying that “Ayesha was so lucky to have received the honour to give pleasure to Mohammed” and that “Mohammed was so compassionate that he did not penetrate the little girl until she was 9″.

          Thanks to this very blind faith of his followers, Muhammad’s scandalous life events & pedophilia have been permanently recorded in the Islamic texts. This blind but foolish faith that Muslims have for Mohammed, as shown by the justification Muslims give to support Mohammed’s’ pedophilia & numerous other scandalous activities shows one dangerous fact:

          That (devout) Muslims are indeed brainless zombies who will do anything Mohammed orders them. This is why Muslim terrorists don’t think twice before slaughtering infidels, as per the instructions of Mohammed’s’ numerous infidel slaughtering verses of the Qu’ran. Muslims are in fact, so much intoxicated with Mohammed’s’ name, that it only takes a Mullah to create a fake story of blasphemy against Mohammed, and that can make the entire Muslim population to grow berserk and create hooliganism, this was evident at the time of partition of India riots.

          The life of Muhammad as revealed from the Islamic texts of Qu’ran, Hadith & Sira is full of immoral & scandalous life events so much that even in his own-life time Mohammed had to make Allah reveal a new verse to protect his reputation. His numerous affairs with women, rape of little girls & other sexual misconduct caused much uproar among his followers that Muhammad made his make-belief friend Allah to intervene and “reveal” a new Verse at the right time to save Muhammad’s prophetic reputation among his followers.

          At one time Muhammad had a glimpse of a beautiful woman, Zainab, the wife of Mohammed’s adopted son. Mohammed desperately wanted to marry & have sex with Zainab but to do such a thing with one’s own daughter-in-law was unethical according to ancient Arab traditions and this fact would have seriously affected Mohammed’s prophetic reputation. At this time Allah came to Muhammad’s’ rescue by revealing a verse prohibiting adoption anymore. Hence Zainab’s husband was no longer Muhammad’s son and hence Muhammad’s marriage to Zainab could not be criticized.

          Now-a-days whenever Muslims are confronted with numerous infidel slaughtering verses in Qur’an, the Islamic-apologists respond by asking to not take verses out of context but to study them in accordance with the events & life of Muhammad at that time. Now this is interesting because, once Muhammad’s verses of scandals & infidel slaughter in the Qu’ran are studied “in-context” as the Muslims say, the reputation & religious image of Islam ‘the perfect religion’ is even more shattered. His polygamous marriage to Zainab, his own-daughter-in law, reveals that not only did Muhammad break the ancient Arab ethics of not marrying ones’ daughter-in-law for the sake of his sexual lust, but when this verse is studied ‘in-context’, it shows that Allah was nothing but Muhammad’s convenient make-belief friend who only revealed verses every now & then to suit Muhammad’s needs & will.

          In fact, One of the wives of Muhammad (Ayesha) reported on one occasion when Muhammad revealed a new verse from Allah allowing himself to fulfill his never-ending sexual desires:

          “I said (to the Prophet), “I feel that Allah hastens in fulfilling your wishes and desires.”

          (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 311).

          Ayesha must have noticed this frequent co-incidence of timing & place of revelation of Allah’s verse with the needs & convenience of Mohammed.

          Clearly, Allah was a make-belief inner friend of Muhammad whose only use was to satisfy Muhammad’s sexual & territorial ambitions. Muhammad was a narcissist who considered himself equal if not more important than even Allah. There is more mention of the word Mohammed than the word Allah in the entire Qu’ran.

          Mohammed’s pedophilia & slaughter of innocent Arabian tribes are a thing of the past, but his legacy of numerous infidel slaughtering commands in the Qu’ran, are followed by pious Muslims even today. Wherever Muslims get the upper hand, they use the Qur’an to justify the slaughter of Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jews in the name of Islam.

          80 Million Hindus & Buddhists have been slaughtered since the arrival of Islam in India. Entire populations of Afghanistan, Pakistan & Bangladesh whose ancestors were once Hindus or Buddhists were converted to Islam at the point of sword.

          Today, 9 out of 10 world conflicts involve Muslims. As recently as 1946-47 in the partition of India, About a Million Hindus & Sikhs were slaughtered because Muslims of India suddenly decided to break India to make the dar-ul-Islam of Pakistan, because they could not live side by side with the dirty kuffars – the Hindus & Sikhs; which is why Pakistan means “land of the Pak (Pure) people”

          All this because of Islam & its promises of 72 virgins in heaven. Yet after every Muslim terrorist attack, our news media & liberal people jump to save Islam because of its religious sugar coating hence making it exempt from all criticism.

          So the question to ask is, can a scandalous & immoral man like Mohammed be considered qualified enough for us to give him the status of a prophet and allow Muslims to create Infidel genocide & terrorism around the globe today? How many more infidels will have to be mercilessly slaughtered by Islam, before we start taking the infidel hating & world domination verses of Islam & Muhammad seriously?
          The first step to Islam free world is to expose the scandalous sexual biography of Muhammad and make the people aware that a man like Muhammad does not qualify to be a normal person, forget about being a Prophet. In fact to call Muhammad a prophet is an insult to all other intellectual and superior beings of our history.

          PERVERT MUHAMMAD

          ISLAM, HOMOSEXUALITY AND OTHER PERVERSIONS

          Muhammad had homosexual tendencies. One such tradition is the following taken from a newsgroup posting:

          فى يوم خرج محمد إلى السوق فوجد زاهرا وكان يحبه فأحتضنه من الخلف
          فقال له زاهر اطلقنى من انت؟ فقال له محمد انا من يشترى العبيد ورفض ان
          يطلقه فلما عرف زاهر أنه محمد صار يمكن ظهره من صدر محمد
          السيرة الحلبية ج 3 ص 441 وفتحي رضوان في (الثائر الأعظم) ص 140

          Translation:

          One day, Muhammad went to the market, there he found Zahir, whom he liked, so he hugged him from behind. Zahir said: let go of me, who are you? Muhammad told him: I’m the slave trader (literally, I’m the one who buys the slaves), and refused to let go of him so when Zahir knew it was Muhammad, he drew (stuck) his back closer to Muhammad’s chest.

          Source:
          Al Seera Al Halabya (Muhammad’s Biography) by Al Halabya, volume 3, p. 441 and Fathy Rdwan in his book Al Tha’er al A’azam (The greatest rebel) (Quoted as found at http://f24.parsimony.net/forum54389/messages/20756.htm)

          Muhammad would also invite young boys to see him wash his private parts:
          Narrated Anas bin Malik:
          Whenever Allah’s Apostle went to answer the call of nature, I along with another boy used to accompany him with a tumbler full of water. (Hisham commented, “So that he might wash his private parts with it.”) (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 152; see also Numbers 153-154)
          Now the authors may accuse us of being perverted for even seeing any homosexual overtones in this tradition. We would respond by saying the same is true of their reading of Acts 16:3, which only exposes how sick and filthy their minds are. As they say, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

          Other sick practices of Muhammad include having his young child bride wipe semen off his clothes:

          Narrated ‘Aisha:
          I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible). (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229)
          Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:
          I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231; see also Number 232)
          Narrated ‘Aisha:
          I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233)

          Not only did nine year old Aisha have to marry and live with an over fifty year old Muhammad (making him old enough to be her grandfather) but she also had to wipe semen stains from her elderly husband’s clothes while still a young girl!

          Other traditions state that Muhammad would actually allow young boys to suck his tongue and he would suck the tongue of others. For instance, in “Musnad Ahmad,” Hadith number: 16245, Volume Title: “The Sayings of the Syrians,” Chapter Title: “Hadith of Mu’awiya Ibn Abu Sufyan,” we read:
          Narrated by Hisham Ibn Kasim, narrated by Huraiz, narrated by Abdul Rahman Ibn Abu Awf Al Jarashy, and narrated by Mua’wiya who said,

          “I saw the prophet – pbuh – sucking on the tongue or the lips of Al-Hassan son of Ali, may the prayers of Allah be upon him. For no tongue or lips that the prophet sucked on will be tormented (by hell fire). (Source)

          For it was narrated by Fatimah Bint Asad, the mother of Ali – may Allah be pleased with her – who related that when she gave birth to her son, it was the prophet who named him Ali and the prophet spat in Ali’s mouth THEN ALLOWED HIM TO SUCK ON HIS TONGUE till he fell asleep.

          She also said, “On a later day we requested a wet nurse for him (Ali) but he refused her breast so we called for Muhammad – pbuh – WHO PLACED HIS TONGUE IN ALI’S MOUTH and he fell asleep. This is the way it was as Allah willed it.” (Source)

          الرسول يمص لسان علي بن أبي طالب و يغذيه من ريقه المبارك
          وفي خصائص العشرة للزمخشري أن النبي صل الله عليه وسلم تولى تسميته بعلي وتغذيته أياما من ريقه المبارك بمصه لسانه فعن فاطمة بنت أسد أم علي رضي الله تعالى عنها أنا قالت لما ولدته سماه عليا وبصق في فيه ثم إنه ألقمه لسانه فما زال يمصه حتى نام قالت فلما كان من الغد طلبنا له مرضعة فلم يقبل ثدي أحد فدعونا له محمدا صلى الله عليه وسلم فألقمه لسانه فنام فكان كذلك ما شاء الله عز وجل هذا كلامه فليتأمل.

          Muhammad also appeared naked before a man:

          Narrated by Muhammad Ibn Ismail, narrated by Ibrahim Ibn Yahya Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abad Al Madany, narrated by Abu Yahya Ibn Muhammad, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Ishaq, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Muslim Al Zuhri, narrated by Urwah Ibn Al Zubair narrated by Aisha who said,

          “Zaid Ibn Haritha came to Medina while the prophet – pbuh – was in my house. He (Zaid) came and knocked on the door so the prophet rose up and went towards him naked, dragging his garment behind him. By Allah I had not seen the prophet naked before this or after it (in front of people). Then the prophet embraced Zaid and kissed him.”

          Abu Issa stated that this was a sound hadith, THOUGH STRANGE, and that Al Zuhri was only known for (sound) hadith. (Sunan Al Tirmidhi, Hadith Number, 4412, Volume Title: “The Book of Permission and Manners of the Prophet,” Entry Title: “What is Related About Kissing and Embracing”. (Source)

          Muhammad went so far as to claim that there are young boys awaiting the believers in Paradise:
          And round them shall go boys of theirs as if they were hidden pearls. S. 52:24 Shakir
          Round about them shall go youths never altering in age, With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink; S. 56:17-18 Shakir

          And round about them shall go youths never altering in age; when you see them you will think them to be scattered pearls. S. 76:19 Shakir

          We wonder, what will Muslims be doing with these young boys, hold hands and sing together? It is passages such as these that led some Muslims to argue that homosexuality and pederasty would be permitted in Paradise. For instance, New York Times columnist Judith Miller, while commenting on the reason Egyptian professor and columnist Farag Foda was assassinated, wrote:

          “About two weeks before his murder, he mocked what passed for intellectual discourse among Islamists by citing a recent sermon by Egypt’s most popular preacher, Abdel Hamid Kishk, a blind sheikh who constantly attacked both the government and its official religious establishment. Kishk had been telling his audience that Muslims who entered paradise would enjoy ETERNAL ERECTIONS and the company of young boys draped in earrings and necklaces. Some of the ulema, the religious scholars at al-Azhar, the government’s seat of Islamic learning had disagreed. Yes, they said, men in paradise would have erections, BUT MERELY PROTRACTED, NOT PERPETUAL. Other experts disputed the possibility of pederasty in paradise. ‘Is this what concerns Muslims at the end of the 20th century?’ Foda asked in a column in October magazine. ‘The world around us is busy with the conquest of space, genetic engineering and the wonders of the computer,’ while Muslim scholars, he wrote ‘in sadness and pain,’ were worried about sex in paradise. In a column published just before he was killed, Foda reported that the Tunisian government had videotaped militant Islamic leaders on their prayer rugs, unwilling to await paradise, making love to beautiful women here on earth. Meanwhile, Egyptian militants in Assyut were ordering believers not to eat eggplants and squash because of their resemblance to sexual organs. ‘The Groups of Darkness are obsessed with sex,’ he wrote.” (Miller, God Has Ninety-Nine Names [A Touchstone Book, published by Simon & Schuster, 1997], pp. 26-27; bold emphasis ours)

          Please note carefully here that not all of the experts disagreed with Kishk’s views regarding the permissibility of pederasty or that men will have eternal erections in Allah’s sexcapade called Paradise.

          And:

          Abul-Ala Maari said that homosexuality will be permissible in paradise. He based this opinion on Sura al-Waqi‘a 56:17-23: “Round about them are male youths of freshness … and there will be huris (‘beautiful companions with large and lustrous eyes, like pearls well-guarded’)” …

          “Abul-Ala said: ‘If wine is prohibited in this world and allowed in paradise, the same will happen with homosexuality’ (Risala al-ghufran by al-Maarri and Khawater Muslim fi al-mas’ala al-Jinsiyya by Muhammad Jalal Kishk).” (True Guidance (Part 4), An Introduction to Quranic Studies [Light of Life, P.O. Box 13, A-9503 Villach, Austria], p. 122)

          These passages may have also been the impetus behind Muslim men desiring to sleep with young boys, and the reason why others felt free to express their homosexual desires in writing. Professor Philip K. Hitti writes:

          “The servants were almost all slaves recruited from non-Muslim peoples and captured by force, taken prisoners in time of war or purchased in time of peace. The white slaves (Mamluk) were mainly Greeks and Slavs, Armenians and Berbers. Certain slaves were eunuchs (khisyan) attached to the service of the harem. Others termed ghilman, who might also be eunuchs, were the recipients of special favour from their masters, wore rich and attractive uniforms and often beautified and perfumed their bodies in effeminate fashion. We read that ghilman in the reign of al-Rashid, but it was evidently al-Amin who, following the Persian precedent, established in the Arabic world the Ghilman institution for the practice of unnatural sexual relations. A judge under al-Mamun used four hundred such youths. Poets like abu-Nuwas did not disdain to give public expression to their perverted passions and to address amorous pieces of their composition to beardless young boys.” (Hitti, History of the Arabs from the Earliest Times to the Present, revised tenth edition, new preface by Walid Khalidi [Palgrave Macmillan, 2002; ISBN: 0-333-63142-0 paperback], p. 341; bold emphasis ours)

          Writing on the reasons for the collapse of the Abbasid Empire, Hitti says:

          Then there were the social and moral forces of disintegration. The blood of the conquering element became in course of centuries diluted with that of the conquered, with a subsequent loss of their dominating position and qualities. With the decay of the Arab national life, Arab stamina and morale broke down. Gradually the empire developed into an empire of the conquered. The large harems, made possible by the countless number of eunuchs, the girl and THE BOY SLAVES (ghilman), who contributed most to the degradation of womenhood AND DEGENERATION OF MANHOOD; the unlimited concubines and the number of half-brothers and half-sisters in the imperial household with their unavoidable jealousies and intrigues; the luxurious scale of high living with the emphasis on wine and song – all these and other similar forces sapped the vitality of family life and inevitably produced the persistently feeble heirs to the throne. The position of these feeble heirs was rendered still more feeble by their interminable disputes over a right of succession which was never definitely determined. (Ibid., 485; bold and underlined emphasis ours)
          Interestingly, the Quran seems to suggest that lesbianism will also be tolerated! Compare the following citations:

          Those who bear the power and those around Him celebrate the praise of their Lord and believe in Him and ask protection for those who believe: Our Lord! Thou embracest all things in mercy and knowledge, therefore grant protection to those who turn (to Thee) and follow Thy way, and save them from the punishment of the hell: Our Lord! and make them enter the gardens of perpetuity which Thou hast promised to them and those who do good of their fathers AND THEIR WIVES and their offspring, surely Thou are the Mighty, the Wise. S. 40:7-8 Shakir

          Whoever does an evil, he shall not be recompensed (with aught) but the like of it, and whoever does good, WHETHER MALE OR FEMALE, and he is a believer, these shall enter the garden, in which they shall be given sustenance without measure. S. 40:40 Shakir

          Lo! those who kept their duty dwell in gardens and delight, Happy because of what their Lord hath given them, and (because) their Lord hath warded off from them the torment of hell-fire. (And it is said unto them): Eat and drink in health (as a reward) for what ye used to do, Reclining on ranged couches. And we WED them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes. And they who believe and whose seed follow them in faith, We cause their seed to join them (there), and We deprive them of nought of their (life’s) work. Every man is a pledge for that which he hath earned. And We provide them with fruit and meat such as they desire. There they pass from hand to hand a cup wherein is neither vanity nor cause of sin. S. 52:17-23 Pickthall
          Verily, for THE RIGHTEOUS is decreed a triumph – Walled gardens and grapevines, , And over-flowing cups. Therein they will hear no vain discourse nor lying; A recompense from thy Lord – a gift amply sufficient – S. 78:31-36 Sher Ali

          Islamic traditions unashamedly say that men will have perpetual sex with these beautiful wide-eyed virgins:
          Narrated Anas bin Malik:

          The Prophet said, “Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the Hereafter) would wish to come back to this world even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah’s Cause).”
          Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah’s Cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all the world and whatever is in it. A place in Paradise as small as the bow or lash of one of you is better than all the world and whatever is in it. And if a houri from Paradise appeared to the people of the earth, she would fill the space between Heaven and the Earth with light and pleasant scent and her head cover is better than the world and whatever is in it.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 53)

          Muhammad reported that some (persons) stated with a sense of pride and some discussed whether there would be MORE MEN IN PARADISE OR MORE WOMEN. It was upon this that Abu Huraira reported that Abu’l Qasim (the Holy Prophet) (may peace be upon him) said: The (members) of the first group to get into Paradise would have their faces as bright as full moon during the night, and the next to this group would have their faces as bright as the shining stars in the sky, AND EVERY PERSON WOULD HAVE TWO WIVES and the marrow of their shanks would glimmer beneath the flesh and THERE WOULD BE NONE WITHOUT A WIFE IN PARADISE. (Sahih Muslim, Book 040, Number 6793; see also 6797)
          Narrated Anas ibn Malik

          The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “In Paradise the believer will be given such and such power to conduct sexual intercourse.” He was asked whether he would be capable of that and replied that he would be given the capacity of a hundred men. Tirmidhi transmitted it. (Al-Tirmidhi, Number 1482, ALIM CD-Rom Version)

          Here also is Ibn Kathir’s commentary on S. 56:35-37:

          Abu Dawud At-Tayalisi recorded that Anas said that the Messenger of Allah said,

          Anas said, “I asked, ‘O Allah’s Messenger! Will one be able to do that? He said,
          At-Tirmidhi also recorded it and said, “Sahih Gharib.” Abu Al-Qasim At-Tabarani recorded that Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah was asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! Will we have sexual intercourse with our wives in Paradise?” He said,

          Al-Hafiz Abu ‘Abdullah Al-Maqisi said, “In my view, the Hadith meets the criteria of the Sahih, and Allah knows best.” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir (Abridged) Volume 9 (Surat Al-Jathiyah to the end of Surat Al-Munafiqun), abridged by a group of scholars under the supervision of Shaykh Safiur-Rahman Al-Mubarakpuri, Darussalam Publishers & Distributors [Darussalam Publishers & Distributors, Riyadh, Houston, New York, Lahore; First Edition: September 2000], pp. 429-430; bold and capital emphasis ours)

          And also his comments on Surah 78:33:

          meaning, wide-eyed maidens WITH FULLY DEVELOPED BREASTS. Ibn ‘Abbas, Mujahid and others have said,

          “This means ROUND BREASTS. They meant by this THAT THE BREASTS OF THESE GIRLS WILL BE FULLY ROUNDED AND NOT SAGGING, because they will be virgins, equal in age …” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir (Abridged) Volume 10 (Surat At-Tagabun to the end of the Qur’an) [First Edition: September 2000], pp. 333-334; bold and capital emphasis ours)

          This is in marked contrast to God’s true word, the Holy Bible:

          “So Jesus said to them, ‘The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those who are regarded as worthy to share in that age and in the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage. In fact, they can no longer die, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, since they are sons of the resurrection.” Luke 20:34-36

          Reading these statements from the hadiths along with the passages of the Quran, one can safely infer that women will also have sex with the houris as well as with their husbands.

          We break it down so that our readers can see more clearly the implication of these statements:

          1. All (not just some, not just the male) believers who do good will enter Paradise.
          2. In Paradise, there will be young maidens and boys, fruits, meats, rivers of wine, honey, milk and water for all the believers to enjoy.
          3. Since women believers will also enter Paradise this means that they too will engage in “joyful” pleasures with young maidens.

          The following author presents the possible reasons why Muhammad would permit such perversions:
          To make his doctrine on sex more attractive to his followers, Muhammad assured them of having in Paradise a multiple of doe-eyed virgin houris with whom they would have sex ad infinitum. For those men who would not be interested in females, he made a different provision for them. They would be attended in Paradise, he told them, by young boys, graced with eternal youth, who to the beholders’ eyes, will seem like sprinkled pearls. When they would gaze upon the scene (a reference, perhaps, to human anatomy), said he, they would behold a kingdom blissful and glorious (human anatomy, again?). The boys shall be arrayed in garments of fine green silk and rich brocade, and adorned with bracelets of silver. Muhammad himself would give them pure and holy wine, mixed with camphor, to drink 76:19-21). In their state of drunkenness, those boys would be providing complete sexual pleasures to their pious masters, a tantalizing concept that induced many homosexual pagan men to accept Islam without having any regard to the consequences they were likely to face, before their death, in this world.

          From the Quran, we have learned much about the Paradise and the amenities it holds for its residents. It width is alone that of the whole of the heavens and the earth (3:133). It has everything to provide a blissful life to all of its occupants. It has more fruits than all the fruits our whole earth has; it has neither rain nor heat of the sun. It does not experience storms nor does it have the snow of the winter (76:13). By virtue of the controlled climate that the Paradise has, neither its present occupants need now nor its future inhabitants would need any homes to live within. All of its present occupants, prophets Idris and Isa (Jesus Christ to the Christians), being two among many others, have all along been living in the Paradise’s open sky. For comfort, they wear silk robes (76:12). They spend their time reclining on soft couches, shadowed by tree branches, from which always hang clusters of fruit (76:14).

          Paradise’s inhabitants partake their meals from silver dishes; they have large silver goblets for drinking not only the purest water but also the delectable wine (47:15); its measure being dependent on the drinker’s wish (76:16). No matter the quantity of wine one consumes, he never gets drunk. Instead, he feels a soothing sensation that makes him yearn for sex. If the blessed soul wishes for a female, a doe-eyed virgin houri presents herself for copulation. On the other hand, if another soul wishes for anal sex, he will find a boy, graced with eternal youth and appearing like sprinkled pearls, ready to satisfy carnal lust.

          Depending on the length of their respective erections, the Paradise’s inhabitants may remain locked with their partners for an indefinite period of time.

          And this goes on in an open space, where God appears every now and then to witness his beloved Muslim men’s performance. Aroused by unending erotic scenes, celibate Isa must also be enjoying uninterrupted sex either with the houris or with the boys to compensate for what he had missed during his short stay on earth.

          Copulations over, both the houri and the boy turn virgins once again, ready to serve those men who may wish to have them without a moment’s notice.

          Since pious Muslim men – – and their number is huge- – avoid excessive and entertaining sex in their ephemeral lives, the sight of most of their brethren engaging themselves, before their eyes, in sex in a large group will not appear to them like an orgy. Instead, it would appear to them as being another pious act in Paradise; its methodology, composition of partners and duration having been determined by God himself. (Mohammad Asghar, MUHAMMAD & ISLAM: Stories not told before, PART – 13)

          Now the authors may claim that the hadiths state that only men have sex with the maidens, not women. The problem with this claim is that the Quran nowhere says that only the men will have maidens of pleasure, but that this will be the reward of all believers which includes males and females. The authors must provide an explicit reference saying that the women will not have sex with these maidens of delight. They can’t simply assume this and pass it off as proof.

          The authors may also wish to argue that the Quran condemns homosexuality, to which we reply where does the Quran explicitly condemn it? One verse that is often appealed to is the following:
          And as for the two who are guilty of indecency from among you, give them both a punishment; then if they repent and amend, turn aside from them; surely Allah is Oft-returning (to mercy), the Merciful. S. 4:16 Shakir

          Nothing stated here leads one to think that the author had homosexuality in mind. In fact, a totally different picture emerges once the passage is read in context:

          And such of your women who are guilty of any flagrant impropriety – call to witness four of you against them; and if they bear witness, then confine them to the houses until death overtakes them or ALLAH opens for them some other way. And if two from among you are guilty of it, punish them both. And if they repent and amend, then leave them alone; surely ALLAH is Oft-Returning with compassion and is ever Merciful. S. 4:15-16 Sher Ali

          From the context one can argue that 4:16 is referring to the women mentioned in verse 15, i.e. that Allah is prescribing the punishment to be imposed on immoral women, whether the nature of the immorality is sexual or something else. The late Maulana Muhammad Ali agrees since this is what he says about 4:16:
          The crime spoken of in this verse is the same as that in the previous verse. The committers are two, and though the masculine gender is used, it does not imply that they are both necessarily males. Slight punishment is explained by Qatadah as meaning reproving with the tongue (AH). Islam requires the utmost modesty in sexual relations.

          The reference to repentance in connection with the mention of fahishah is further proof that fahishah does not here mean fornication, but some immorality short of that, for fornication is punishable criminally, and penitence on the part of those guilty of it cannot avert the punishment (Ali, Holy Qur’an – Arabic Text, English Translation & Commentary [Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha’at Islam Lahore Inc. USA 1995], p. 193, fn. 552; underlined emphasis ours)

          Now someone may argue that this interpretation is untenable since their punishment is already prescribed in verse 15. On the contrary, verse 15 says that this will be the prescribed punishment until Allah opens another way:

          … then confine them to the houses until death overtakes them OR ALLAH OPENS FOR THEM SOME OTHER WAY …

          Verse 16 prescribes this other way which Allah alluded to in the prior verse. In other words, verse 16 abrogates the punishment prescribed in verse 15. This is not the only time where one verse abrogates the verse right before it:

          O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred (steadfast) they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence. Now hath Allah lightened your burden, for He knoweth that there is weakness in you. So if there be of you a steadfast hundred they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a thousand (steadfast) they shall overcome two thousand by permission of Allah. Allah is with the steadfast. S. 8:65-66 Pickthall

          4:16 may also be including the male involved in the act, so that both the male and female participants are singled out. Maulana Abdul Majid Daryabadi says:

          584. (whether men or women, married or unmarried). The enactment here is general. It speaks of any two persons guilty of the act, in contradistinction to ‘married women’ of the previous verse. In several nations, as among the Greeks and in the earlier period of Roman history, there was no recognition of the offence of adultery, ‘unless a married woman was the offender.’ (Tafsir-Ul-Qur’an Translation and Commentary of the Holy Qur’an, Volume I [Darul-Ishaat Urdu Bazar, Karachi-1, Pakistan; First edition: 1991], p. 311)
          This is perhaps why Rashid Khalifa translated it in the following manner:

          The couple who commits adultery shall be punished. If they repent and reform, you shall leave them alone. GOD is Redeemer, Most Merciful.

          Muhammad Asad’s notes provide evidence for understanding the verse in this manner, since he writes:
          … According to most of the commentators, this refers to the immoral conduct on the part of a man and a woman as well as to homosexual relations. (Message of the Qur’an [Dar Al-Andalus Limited 3 Library Ramp, Gibraltar rpt. 1993], p. 104, fn. 13: http://www.geocities.com/masad02/004; underlined emphasis ours)

          Apart from the claim that some took this in reference to homosexual relations, Asad demonstrates that there is nothing in the wording of 4:16 that necessarily points to it. One must first assume that this refers to homosexuality and then proceed to read that into the text. Asad also writes:

          … Some of the commentators attribute to the term fahishah (here rendered as “immoral conduct”) the meaning of “adultery” or “fornication” and are, consequently, of the opinion that this verse has been “abrogated” by 24: 2, which lays down the punishment of one hundred stripes for each of the guilty parties. This unwarranted assumption must, however, be rejected. Quite apart from the impossibility of admitting that any passage of the Qur’an could have been “abrogated” by another of its passages (see surah 2, note 87), the expression fahishah DOES NOT, BY ITSELF, CONNOTE ILLICIT SEXUAL INTERCOURSE: it signifies anything that is GROSSLY IMMODEST, unseemly, lewd, indecent or ABOMINABLE IN WORD OR DEED (cf. Lane VI, 2344f.), AND IS BY NO MEANS RESTRICTED TO SEXUAL TRANSGRESSION. Read in this context, and in conjunction with 24:2, this expression obviously denotes here immoral conduct not necessarily amounting to what is termed zina (i.e., “adultery” or “fornication”), and therefore redeemable by sincere repentance (in contrast to a proven act of zina, which is punishable by flogging). – It is noteworthy that in all cases of alleged sexual transgressions or misbehaviour the Qur’an stipulates the direct evidence of four witnesses (instead of the two required in all other judicial cases) as a sine qua non of conviction. For the reasons underlying this injunction, as well as for its judicial implications, see note 7 on 24:4. (Ibid., fn. 14; bold and capital emphasis ours)

          Asad shows that there is nothing contextually which necessarily points to homosexuality. As a side note, Asad rejected the widely held Muslim belief that the Quran abrogates itself and it is therefore not surprising that he rejected the opinions of Muslims regarding the abrogation of 4:16.

          The authors may try to appeal to the story of Lot in the Quran where the men of the town are considered immoral for wanting to sleep with the male guests:

          And (We sent) Lut when he said to his people: What! do you commit an indecency which any one in the world has not done before you? Most surely you come to males in lust besides females; nay you are an extravagant people. And the answer of his people was no other than that they said: Turn them out of your town, surely they are a people who seek to purify (themselves). So We delivered him and his followers, except his wife; she was of those who remained behind. And We rained upon them a rain; consider then what was the end of the guilty. S. 7:80-84 Shakir

          And when Our messengers came unto Lot, he was distressed and knew not how to protect them. He said: This is a distressful day. And his people came unto him, running towards him – and before then they used to commit abominations – He said: O my people! Here are my daughters! They are purer for you. Beware of Allah, and degrade me not in (the person of) my guests. Is there not among you any upright man? They said: Well thou knowest that we have no right to thy daughters, and well thou knowest what we want. He said: Would that I had strength to resist you or had some strong support (among you)! (The messengers) said: O Lot! Lo! we are messengers of thy Lord; they shall not reach thee. So travel with thy people in a part of the night, and let not one of you turn round – (all) save thy wife. Lo! that which smiteth them will smite her (also). Lo! their tryst is (for) the morning. Is not the morning nigh? So when Our commandment came to pass We overthrew (that township) and rained upon it stones of clay, one after another, Marked with fire in the providence of thy Lord (for the destruction of the wicked). And they are never far from the wrong-doers. S. 11:77-83 Pickthall

          But even here the authors are without support for the following reasons. First, one can argue from the context that what the Quran is condemning is gang rape, i.e. that a group of men wanted to sleep with the male guests against their will. Trying to appeal to Lot’s negative comments about their lust of men and his willingness to offer his daughters in place of his guests to prove their point that Allah condemns homosexuality won’t work. Appealing to Lot would mean that the authors’ would have to then agree that Lot’s willingness to allow his daughters to be violated by these men was something also acceptable in God’s sight. Lot was obviously wrong in even suggesting that the evildoers sleep with his daughters, implying that he may have also been wrong in his views regarding same sex relations (at least as far as the Quran is concerned). The only way the authors can show that Lot’s negative view of same sex relations was right is to quote passages from the Quran explicitly stating this.

          The authors may try to argue that the Quranic account echoes the Genesis story and since the OT condemns homosexuality the Quran would therefore be in agreement. (Cf. Lev. 18:22; 20:13)
          Even though the evil men’s desire to sleep with the male guests would be condemned as a homosexual act in light of the overall context of the Pentateuch, this doesn’t necessarily mean that this is the case with the Quran. For instance, the Quran permits sexual relations which the Pentateuch condemns as abominable. Compare the following:

          “If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, and if after she leaves his house she becomes the wife of another man, and her second husband dislikes her and writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, or if he dies, then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled. That would be detestable in the eyes of the LORD. Do not bring sin upon the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance.” Deuteronomy 24:1-4

          In contrast with:

          “A divorce is only permissible twice: after that, the parties should either hold together on equitable terms, or separate with kindness. It is not lawful for you, (men), to take back any of your gifts (from your wives), except when both parties fear that they would be unable to keep the limits ordained by Allah. If ye (judges) do indeed fear that they would be unable to keep the limits ordained by Allah, there is no blame on either of them if she give something for her freedom. These are the limits ordained by Allah. So do not transgress them if any do transgress the limits ordained by Allah, such persons wrong (themselves as well as others). So if a husband divorces his wife (irrevocably), he cannot, after that, re-marry her until after she has married another husband and he has divorced her. In that case there is no blame on either of them if they re-unite, provided they feel that they can keep the limits ordained by Allah. Such are the limits ordained by Allah, which He makes plain to those who understand.” S. 2:229-230

          The Ahadith state:

          Yahya related to me from Malik from al-Miswar ibn Rifaa al-Quradhi from az-Zubayr ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn az-Zubayr that Rifaa ibn Simwal divorced his wife, Tamima bint Wahb, in the time of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, three times. Then she married Abd ar-Rahman ibn az-Zubayr and he turned from her and could not consummate the marriage and so he parted from her. Rifaa wanted to marry her again and it was mentioned to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and he forbade him to marry her. He said, “She is not halal for you until she has tasted the sweetness of intercourse.” (Malik’s Muwatta, Book 28, Number 28.7.17; see also Number 28.7.18)
          In light of the foregoing one can argue that, since the Quran nowhere explicitly condemns homosexuality, the men of Lot were not being judged for having homosexual inclinations but for wanting to rape the guests against their will.

          The authors may shout “not so fast,” and appeal to the next quotation which says that Allah designed for a man to marry a woman:
          The people of Lut gave the lie to the apostles. When their brother Lut said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)? Surely I am a faithful apostle to you; Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me: And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds; What! do you come to the males from among the creatures And leave what your Lord has created for you of your wives? Nay, you are a people exceeding limits. They said: If you desist not, O Lut! you shall surely be of those who are expelled. He said: Surely I am of those who utterly abhor your doing: S. 26:160-168 Shakir
          Yet again this can be easily explained away. One can argue that Allah wasn’t rebuking them so much for wanting to have sex with men, but for wanting to forsake their wives. In other words, had these been unmarried men than there would have been no problem with them having sex with other men. Therefore, this passage can only be used to show that a man cannot abandon his wife to sleep with another man, but can only do so if he is single.
          The authors may still appeal to other passages such as S. 29:28-29 where Lot condemns the men for coming into other men.
          One could account for the above by arguing that the condemnation of homosexuality in Lot’s story only shows that it was not acceptable at that time period. One can equally argue that just as the Quran abrogated other forbidden sexual relations, such as the Mosaic prohibition of marrying one’s former wife who had remarried, the Quran also did away with the prohibition of homosexuality; especially when we take this in light of the passages that imply that homosexual relations will be permitted in, of all places, Paradise!
          In one last act of desperation the authors may turn to the hadiths to prove that Islam condemns homosexuality. Note for instance the following hadiths:
          Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
          The Prophet cursed effeminate men (those men who are in the similitude assume the manners of women) and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, “Turn them out of your houses.” The Prophet turned out such-and-such man, and ‘Umar turned out such-and-such woman. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 72, Number 774; see also Volume 8, Book 82, Number 820)
          Narrated Um Salama:
          that once the Prophet was in her house, and an effeminate man was there too. The effeminate man said to ‘Abdullah, (Um Salama’s brother) “O ‘Abdullah! If Ta’if should be conquered tomorrow, I recommend you the daughter of Ghailan, for she is so fat that she has four curves in the front (of her belly) and eight at the back.” So the Prophet said (to his wives) “These effeminate (men) should not enter upon you (your houses).” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 72, Number 775; see also Volume 7, Book 72, Number 774; Book 62, Number 162; Volume 5, Book 59, Number 613)
          Again, several responses are in order. First, these traditions would simply point to contradictions between the Quran and the ahadith. The rule of thumb is that when the ahadith contradict the Quran than the ahadith are to be rejected. Second, none of these hadiths condemn homosexuality, but condemn men for acting like women and vice-versa. This view is supported by the following hadith:
          Malik said from Hisham ibn Urwa from his father that an effeminate man was with Umm Salama, the wife of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. He said to Abdullah ibn Abi Umayya while the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was listening. “Abdullah! If Allah grants you victory over Ta’if tomorrow, I will lead you to the daughter of Ghailan. She has four folds on her front and eight folds on her back.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “This sort of man should not enter freely with you.” (It was customary to allow men with no sexual inclination to enter freely where there were women). (Malik’s Muwatta, Book 37, Number 37.6.5)
          Thus, we have to ask: Why were there effeminate men to begin with? What were they doing there with the Muslims and why didn’t Muhammad punish them for being effeminate? This leads me to my final point.
          If the Quran does condemn homosexuality then what is the punishment that it prescribes for those practicing it? We find passages prescribing the punishment of fornicators and adulterers, but where is the prescribed punishment for homosexuals? The following author, although erroneously assuming that Surah 4:16 refers to homosexuality, candidly admits:
          That homosexuality must be treated as a crime in a Moslem State is evident from the story of Lot and his people. Verse IV.20 says: “If two men commit indecency punish them both; if they repent and mend their ways, let them be.” In this case NO SPECIAL PENALTY HAS BEEN PRESCRIBED. (Faruq Sherif, A Guide to the Contents of the Quran [Garnet Publishing Limited, UK (printed in Lebanon); reprinted 1995, 1998], p. 214; bold and capital emphasis ours)
          Equally important, where does the Quran explicitly condemn lesbainism? Where is there any passage prescribing punishment for lesbians? There is no such passage.
          Now I am sure that the authors would accuse me of twisting the passages of the Quran regarding homosexuality so as to avoid accepting its condemnation of such a practice. They would say that the reason why I fail to see what the Quran says about homosexuality is because my “perverted” mind blinds me from seeing it. I would respond by saying that this is precisely the same problem the authors have when they accuse the holy Apostle Paul of being a homosexual despite his clear condemnation of such relations.
          For more on Islam and homosexuality we highly recommend the following book: Islamic Homosexualities: Culture, History, and Literature, by Stephen O. Murray (editor), Publisher: New York University Press; (January 1997), ISBN: 0814774679. The contributing authors demonstrate just how prevalent the practice of homosexuality, including lesbianism, was in Muslim lands throughout the centuries.

        • 1000 EVIL TEACHINGS THAT MUST BE RENOUNCED, DENOUNCED, AND REMOVED FROM KORAN
          CRUELTY, WAR, SADISM, TORTURE!
          Principle of “eye for an eye”
          O ye who believe! the law of equality is prescribed to you in cases of murder: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, the woman for the woman. But if any remission is made by the brother of the slain, then grant any reasonable demand, and compensate him with handsome gratitude, this is a concession and a Mercy from your Lord. After this whoever exceeds the limits shall be in grave penalty. In the Law of Equality there is (saving of) Life to you, o ye men of understanding; that ye may restrain yourselves. 2:178-179
          Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. But if they cease, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression. The prohibited month for the prohibited month,- and so for all things prohibited,- there is the law of equality. If then any one transgresses the prohibition against you, Transgress ye likewise against him. But fear God, and know that God is with those who restrain themselves. 2:190-194
          Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don’t kill them.) 2:191-2
          And slay them wherever you find them and drive them out of places whence they drove you out for persecution is worse then slaughter. 2.191
          And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah 2:193
          War is ordained by Allah, and all Muslims must be willing to fight, whether they like it or not. 2:216
          And they will not cease from fighting against you till they have made you renegades from your religion, if they can. And whoso becometh a renegade and dieth in his disbelief: such are they whose works have fallen both in the world and the Hereafter. 2:217 called for the killing of the apostate
          2:243-245 Didst thou not Turn by vision to those who abandoned their homes, though they were thousands (In number), for fear of death? God said to them: “Die”: Then He restored them to life. For God is full of bounty to mankind, but Most of them are ungrateful. Then fight in the cause of God, and know that God Heareth and knoweth all things. Who is he that will loan to God a beautiful loan, which God will double unto his credit and multiply many times? It is God that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return. 2:243-245
          If a wound hath touched you, be sure a similar wound hath touched the others. 3:140
          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: their abode will be the fire; and evil is the home of the wrong-doers! 3:151
          God wanted Muslims to exterminate non-Muslim army
          God did indeed fulfil His promise to you when ye with His permission Were about to annihilate your enemy,- until ye flinched and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed it after He brought you in sight (of the booty) which ye covet. 3:152
          Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; (Here Allah is saying that those jihadi who dies [commit suicide] is not dead but he will be living with Allah).
          Now, I do not believe that anybody can have slightest doubt that the above clear invitations (from Allah) for the ardent fanatical believers can very easily convince the blind pukka (pure) Muslims to become a time-bomb (suicidal) in order to kill infidels/kaffirs—for the cause of Allah! 3:169

          “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).”
          3:85
          Disbelievers will go to Hell. 3:196
          “He who disobeys the Apostle after guidance has been revealed will burn in Hell.” 4:114
          Let those fight in the cause of God Who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of God,- whether he is slain or gets victory – Soon shall We give him a reward of great (value). 4:74
          Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject Faith Fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of Satan. Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands (from fight) but establish regular prayers and spend in regular charity? When (at length) the order for fighting was issued to them, behold! a section of them feared men as – or even more than – they should have feared God: They said: “Our Lord! Why hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not Grant us respite to our (natural) term, near (enough)?” Say: “Short is the enjoyment of this world: the Hereafter is the best for those who do right: Never will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least! 4:76-77
          “Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you are in towers built up strong and high! If some good befalls, they say, ‘This is from Allah;’ but if evil, they say, ‘This is from you (Muhammad).’ Say: ‘All things are from Allah.’ So what is wrong with these people, that they fail to understand these simple words 4:78
          Except those who are feeble—men, women and children—who cannot devise a plan nor have the means or power. These are those whom Allah is likely to forgive.”
          4:8 “
          Then fight in God’s cause – Thou art held responsible only for thyself – and rouse the believers 4:84
          “What is the matter with you that you are divided about the Hypocrites? Allah has cast them back (causing their disbelief). Would you guide those whom Allah has thrown out of the Way? For those whom Allah has thrown aside and led astray, never shall they find the Way. 4:88
          What is the matter with you, then, that you have become two parties about the hypocrites, while Allah has made them return (to unbelief) for what they have earned? Do you wish to guide him whom Allah has caused to err? And whomsoever Allah causes to err, you shall by no means find a way for him. THEY DESIRE THAT YOU SHOULD DISBELIEVE AS THEY HAVE DISBELIEVED, SO THAT YOU MIGHT BE ALL ALIKE; THEREFORE TAKE NOT FROM AMONG THEM FRIENDS UNTIL THEY FLY THEIR HOMES IN ALLAH’S WAY; BUT IF THEY TURN BACK, THEN SEIZE THEM AND KILL THEM WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TAKE NOT FROM AMONG THEM A FRIEND OR A HELPER. (4:89)

          If the unbelievers do not offer you peace, kill them wherever you find them. Against such you are given clear warrant. 4:91 ( Offering peace in Islam means surrendering. All 67 out of 68 wars of Muhammad were offensive. They are called qazwah (raid, ambush, sudden attack). That is how Muhammad waged his wars. He raided, massacred and looted civilians with no warning. The one defensive war, ‘ditch’ was not fought. That is why the Islamic terrorism ‘jihad’ will continue until the West “offers peace
          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 (sacrifice both life and wealth) 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. 4:95
          “Verily, when angels take the souls of those who die wronging themselves (by staying home), they say: ‘In what (plight or engagement) were you?’ They reply: ‘Weak on the earth.’ Such men will find their abode in Hell, an evil resort!” 4:97
          On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief (corruption) in the land it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then there came to them Our apostles with clear Signs yet even after that many of them continued to commit excesses in the land. 5:32
          Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam Koran 5:33
          The punishment of those who pit themselves 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, except those who repent before you have them in your power (5:33-34) 5:33
          The only reward for those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom… 5:33
          Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. 5:34
          O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah, and seek the way of the approach unto Him, and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed. 5:35
          Execution and torture for those who fight against the Muslim armies; As for those who disbelieve, lo! If all that is in the earth were theirs, and as much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of the Resurrection, it would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom. 5:36
          They will wish to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it. Theirs will be a lasting doom. 5:37
          Cut off the hands of thieves. It is an exemplary punishment from Allah. 5:38
          Stealing should be punished by amputation of hands: As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from God, for their crime: and God is Exalted in power. 5:41
          We ordained therein for them: “Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear. Tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal.” (Does this verse sound humane?) 5:45:
          Christians will be burned in the Fire. 5:72
          Muslims that make friends with disbelievers will face a doom prepared for them by Allah 5:80
          Allah will torment those how deny his revelations. 6:49
          Let the idolaters kill their children. It is Allah’s will. 6:137
          “They ask you about the benefits of capturing the spoils of war. Tell them: ‘The benefits belong to Allah and to His Messenger.’” 8:1
          Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an. 8:12
          During the battle of Badr, something momentous happened: Allah ordered the angels to fight alongside the Muslims and to strengthen their spirits, and He told [the angels] that he would strike terror into the hearts of the infidels. [The Koran says]: ‘Remember thy Lord inspired the angels [with the message]: I am with you. Give firmness to the Believers, I WILL CAST TERROR INTO THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO DISBELIEVE. THEREFORE STRIKE OFF THEIR HEADS AND STRIKE OFF EVERY FINGERTIP OF THEM. THIS IS BECAUSE THEY ACTED ADVERSELY TO ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER; AND WHOEVER ACTS ADVERSELY TO ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER – THEN SURELY ALLAH IS SEVERE IN REQUITING (EVIL). THIS – TASTE IT, AND (KNOW) THAT FOR THE UNBELIEVERS IS THE PUNISHMENT OF FIRE. O you who believe! When you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. And whoever shall turn his back to them on that day – unless he turn aside for the sake of fighting or withdraws to a company – then he, indeed, becomes deserving of Allah’s wrath, and his abode is hell; and an evil destination shall it be. So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy) but it was Allah Who smote, and that He might confer upon the believers a good gift from Himself; (8:12-17)
          When you fight with disbelievers, do not retreat. Those who do will go to hell. 8:15-16
          It is not ye who Slew them; it is God; when thou threwest a handful of dust, it was not Thy act, but God’s…..” (Allah said, the killing of surrendered soldiers were done by the wish of Allah) 8:17
          So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world). 8:39
          Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from Unbelief), their past would be forgiven them; but if they persist, the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them). And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily God doth see all that they do. 8:38-39
          To insure a lion’s share of booty for himself: “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy and the wayfarer.” (8:41)
          The angels smite the face and backs of disbelievers, saying: “Taste the punishment of burning!” 8:50
          The worst beasts in Allah’s sight are the disbelievers. 8:55
          If you apprehend treachery from any group on the part of a people (with whom you have a treaty), retaliate by breaking off (relations) with them. The infidels should not think they can bypass (Islamic law or the punishment of Allah). Surely they cannot escape 8:58
          The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy. 8:59
          Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels. 8:60
          Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power including steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you and ye shall not be treated unjustly. 8:60
          The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.8:65
          O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred (steadfast) they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence. 8:65
          if there are a 100 of you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish 2,00, and if a 1,000 , they will vanquish 2,000 (two thousands) with the leave of Allah…” [This fabulous verse was written in the diary of Muhammad Ata the leader of 9/11 terrorists]. 8:66

          It is not fitting for an Apostle that he should have prisoners of war until He thoroughly subdued the land….” (Allah insisting Prophet to kill all the prisoners, and should not keep any surrendered prisoners alive) 8:67

          But (now) enjoy what ye took in war (booty), lawful and good; but fear God…” (Allah encouraging Muslims to accept booty spoils of war “Maal-E-Ganimat”) Had there not been a previous sanction from God, you would have been sternly punished for what you have taken. Enjoy therefore the good and lawful things which you have gained in war, and fear God. (Surah 8:69)
          Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels (non-Muslims) out to the last. 8:7
          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 as truth 9.:111
          “If they violate their oaths and break treaties, taunting you for your Religion, then fight these specimens of faithlessness.” 9:12
          Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of believers” 9:14

          Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood. 9:123
          “[The question is]: This violence, ruthlessness and firmness – Is it [meant to be] a permanent law and feature of war, or does it apply only to the early [years of Islam]? The answer [is given in] Koran 9:123, where Allah says: ‘O ye who believe! Fight the infidels who are near to you, and let them find ruthlessness in you, and know that Allah is with the faithful.’ This was one of the last suras to descend, its verses were among the last to descend, and the laws [they set out] are timeless… The perfect Muslim is gentle with his fellow believer and harsh towards his enemy, the infidel…”
          O ye who believe! Take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love Infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong”. [Quran is asking Muslims even to go against their own father and brothers in respect of religious faith] 9:23
          Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax. 9:29
          Verse 9:29 forms the basis of the system of dhimmitude prevalent in the Islamic empire, which institutionalised the second-class status of non-Muslims (specifically Christians and Jews) and forced them to pay tribute for ‘protection’:

          “Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya [poll tax] with willing submission, feel themselves subdued.”
          FIGHT THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN ALLAH, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, NOR FOLLOW THE RELIGION OF TRUTH, OUT OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE BOOK [Christians and Jews], until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and THEY ARE IN A STATE OF SUBJECTION. (9:29)
          “Allah is not bound by any contract or treaty with non-Muslims, nor is His Apostle.” 9:3
          NOTE: In other words, it is acceptable to break treaties and obligations with pagans and make war on them whenever strong enough to do so (Qur’an 9:3)

          Another translation but it’s really the same isn’t it?
          “Believers, what is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allah (i.e., Jihad) you cling to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? Unless you march, He will afflict and punish you with a painful torture, and put others in your place. But you cannot harm Him in the least.” 9:38

          Unless ye go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place; but Him ye would not harm in the least. [Allah’s hatred to those who are reluctant to join Islamic jihad] 9:39
          “Only those ask for exemption (from Jihad) who believe not in Allah and whose hearts are in doubt, so that they are tossed to and fro. If they had intended to march out to fight, they would certainly have made some preparation and readied their equipment; but Allah was averse to their being sent forth; so He made them lag behind. ‘Sit you among those who sit.’ If they had marched with you, they would not have added to your (strength) but only (made for) discord, spying and sowing sedition. There would have been some in your midst who would have listened to them. But Allah knows well those (peace-loving Muslims) who do wrong and are wicked.” 9:45
          “They had plotted sedition before, and upset matters for you until the Decree of Allah (to fight) became manifest, much to their disgust. Among them are many who say: ‘Grant me exemption to stay back at home (exempted from Jihad). And do not tempt me (with promises of booty).’ Have they not fallen into temptation already? Indeed, Hell surrounds them.” 9:48
          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 [become believers] and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them (9:5)
          Kill those who join other gods with Allah wherever you may find them. (9:5-6)
          Those who oppose Allah and His messenger will burn in the fire of hell. 9:63
          “How can there be a covenant between Allah and His Messenger and the disbelievers with whom you made a treaty near the sacred Mosque?” 9:7
          “Some of you made a deal with Allah, saying, ‘If You give us booty we shall pay You the tax.’ But when He gave them booty, they became greedy and refused to pay. As a consequence of breaking their promises, Allah filled their hearts with hypocrisy which will last forever.” 9:75

          “How (can there be such a treaty), seeing that they get an advantage, the upper hand over you? They do not pay you respect, or honor you or the ties of kinship or covenant. With (good words from) their mouths they entice you (to negotiate), but their hearts are averse to you.” 9:8

          “He punished them by putting hypocrisy in their hearts until the Day whereon they shall meet Him, because they lied to Allah and failed to perform as promised. Allah knows their secrets. Those who slander and taunt the believers who pay the zakat (for Allah’s Cause) voluntarily and throw ridicule on them, scoffing, Allah will throw back their taunts, and they shall have a painful doom. Whether you ask for their forgiveness or not, (their sin is unforgivable). If you ask seventy times for their forgiveness Allah will not forgive them.” 9:77
          “Those who stayed behind rejoiced in their inaction behind the back of the Messenger. They hated to strive and fight with their goods and lives in the Cause of Allah. They said, ‘Go not forth in the heat.’ Say, ‘The fire of Hell is fiercer in heat.’ If only they could understand! So let them laugh a little, for they will weep much as a reward for what they did. If Allah brings you back (from the campaign) to a party of the hypocrites and they ask to go out to fight, say: ‘You shall never go out to fight with me against a foe. You were content sitting inactive on the first occasion. So sit with the useless men who lag behind.’ Do not pray for any of them (Muhammad) that die, nor stand at his grave. They rejected Allah and disbelieved His Messenger. They died in a state of perverse rebellion.” 9:81
          “And let not their wealth or (following in) sons dazzle you or excite your admiration. Allah’s plan is to punish them with these things in this world, and to make sure their souls perish while they are unbelievers. When a surah comes down enjoining them to believe in Allah and to strive hard and fight along with His Messenger, those with wealth and influence among them ask you for exemption from Jihad. They prefer to be with (their women), who remain behind (at home). Their hearts are sealed and so they understand not.” 9:85
          “The (complaint) is against those who claim exemption (from fighting) while they are rich. They prefer to stay with the (women) who remain behind (at home). Allah has sealed their hearts. They are content to be useless. Say: ‘Present no excuses: we shall not believe you.’ It is your actions that Allah and His Messenger will observe. They will swear to you by Allah, when you return hoping that you might leave them alone. So turn away from them, for they are unclean, an abomination, and Hell is their dwelling-place, a fitting recompense for them.” 9:93
          Non-Muslim who pretend to believe (so they won’t be killed by Muslims) are unclean and will go to hell. 9:95
          “The Arabs of the desert are the worst in unbelief and hypocrisy, and most fitted to be in ignorance of the command which Allah hath sent down to His Messenger. Some of the Bedouins look upon their payments (for Allah’s Cause) as a fine and wish disasters to fall on you (so that they might not have to pay). Yet on them be the disaster of evil.” 9:97
          On the last day Allah will kill all the disbelievers (and then he will torture them forever in hell). 10:45
          Any one who, after accepting faith in God, utters Unbelief,- except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith – but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from God, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty. This because they love the life of this world better than the Hereafter: and God will not guide those who reject Faith. Those are they whose hearts, ears, and eyes God has sealed up, and they take no heed. Without doubt, in the Hereafter they will perish. But verily thy Lord,- to those who leave their homes after trials and persecutions,- and who thereafter strive and fight for the faith and patiently persevere,- Thy Lord, after all this is oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. 16:106-110
          When we decide to destroy a population, We send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then we destroy them utterly. (17:16-17)
          Do they see Us advancing, gradually reducing the land (in their control), curtailing its borders on all sides? It is they who will be overcome.21:44
          Disbelievers will wear garments of fire, boiling fluid will be poured on their heads, their bellies and skin will be melted, they will be tormented with iron hooks, and when they try to escape they will be driven back with the taunt: Taste the doom of burning. 22:19-22
          “..fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem” “for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods” 22:19-22

          And how many populations we destroyed, which exulted in their life (of ease and plenty! Now those habitations of theirs, after them are deserted—all but a miserable few! And we are their heirs! (28:58)
          “Allah turned back the unbelievers [Meccans and their allies] in a state of rage, having not won any good, and Allah spared the believers battle. Allah is, indeed, Strong and Mighty.” 33:25
          A part [of them] ye slew, and a part ye made captives; (Every male of Quraiza tribe, above the age of 13 were killed, others were made captives) 33.26
          Everything Those Infidels Have Everywhere In the World Already Belongs to the Muslims, Take It
          And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things. 33:27
          Before taking an ex-daughter-in-law, Zeinab bint Hajash, previously married to his adopted son Zaid, as his seventh wife: “Then, when Zaid had dissolved his marriage with her, with the necessary formality, We (Allah) joined her in marriage to thee in order that, in the future, there may be no difficulty to the believers in the matter of marriage with the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved, with the necessary formality, their marriage with them. And Allah’s command must be fulfilled. (33:37)
          Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. So believers, send your blessings on him, and salute him with all respect—a worthy salutation. Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger and speak evil things of them—Allah has cursed them and prepared a humiliating torment.” 33:56

          “Those who speak negatively of Allah and His Apostle shall be cursed.” 33:57

          Those who oppose Islam will be slain with a fierce slaughter. 33:60
          Those who have denied the Book and the message…with chains and shackles round their necks they shall be dragged through scalding water and burnt in the fires of Hell. 40.70
          The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from God: for (God) loveth not those who do wrong. But indeed if any do help and defend themselves after a wrong (done) to them, against such there is no cause of blame. The blame is only against those who oppress men and wrong-doing and insolently transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice: for such there will be a penalty grievous. But indeed if any show patience and forgive, that would truly be an exercise of courageous will and resolution in the conduct of affairs. 42:40-43
          “Were they to obey, showing their obedience in modest speech, after the matter (of preparation for Jihad) had been determined for them, it would have been better. Is it to be expected that if you were put in authority and given command that you would do mischief in the land and sever your ties of kinship. Such men are cursed by Allah. He has made them deaf, dumb and blind.” 47:21
          “Believers, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger. Do not falter; become faint-hearted, or weak-kneed, crying for peace.”
          And any treaties with Infidels can be broken anytime for any reason, they have no meaning. 47:33
          And be not slack so as to cry for peace and you have the upper hand, and Allah is with you, and He will not bring your deeds to naught. 47.35
          ‘It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. You desire the frail goods of this world, while Allah desires [for you] the hereafter; and Allah is Mighty and Wise [Koran 8:67]’… The word ‘prophet’ in this verse appears in the indefinite form, which means that [all] the prophets used to kill many of their enemies by the sword rather than take them captive… Allah says this explicitly [in the following verse]: ‘So when you meet the infidels in battle, then cut off their heads, and after you have killed many of them by the sword, place [them] in shackles, and afterwards either set them free if you choose or let them ransom [themselves] until the war ends 47:4
          “The desert Arabs who lagged behind (in fighting) will say to you (Muhammad): ‘We were engaged in (looking after) our flocks and our families.’ We have prepared for them a Blazing Fire!” 48:11
          No blame is there on the blind, nor is there blame on the lame, nor on one ill (if he joins not the war): But he that obeys God and his Apostle,- (God) will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow; and he who turns back, (God) will punish him with a grievous Penalty. 48:17
          “He rewarded them with abundant spoils that they will capture. Allah has promised you much booty that you shall take, and He has made this easy for you.” 48:19
          It is He Who has sent His Apostle with Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion: and enough is God for a Witness. Muhammad is the apostle of God; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other. 48:28-29

          Those with Muhammad are ruthless toward disbelievers and merciful toward themselves. 48:29
          God has decreed: “It is I and My apostles who must prevail”: For God is One full of strength, able to enforce His Will. 58:21
          It is He Who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the Book from their homes at the first gathering (of the forces). Little did ye think that they would get out: And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from God! But the (Wrath of) God came to them from quarters from which they little expected (it), and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers, take warning, then, O ye with eyes (to see)! And had it not been that God had decreed banishment for them, He would certainly have punished them in this world: And in the Hereafter they shall (certainly) have the Punishment of the Fire. That is because they resisted God and His Apostle: and if any one resists God, verily God is severe in Punishment. 59:2-4
          Whether ye cut down (O ye Muslim!) The tender palm-trees, or ye left them standing on their roots, it was by leave of God, and in order that He might cover with shame the rebellious transgresses [the unbelievers defeated in battle]. What God has bestowed on His Apostle (and taken away) from them – for this ye made no expedition with either cavalry or camelry: but God gives power to His apostles over any He pleases: and God has power over all things. What God has bestowed on His Apostle (and taken away) from the people of the townships,- belongs to God,- to His Apostle and to kindred and orphans, the needy and the wayfarer; In order that it may not (merely) make a circuit between the wealthy among you. So take what the Apostle assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you. And fear God; for God is strict in Punishment. 59:5-7

          As we can see, pillage and plunder is condoned in the Quran as a punishment for non-Muslims who resist Muslim armies. In the verse above, Muhammad even says that wantonly cutting down palm trees of an enemy town is acceptable.
          The booty of Banu Nadir belongs to Muhammad; this is because no fighting, either with horses or on foot took place; one must obey Muhammad’s decision (blindly and totally)…59.6
          Whatever booty goes to Muhammad belongs to Allah; it shall go to the relatives, the poor and the travelling alien; accept whatever booty Muhammad gives…59:70
          Desire for death is the only way to demonstrate true belief
          Say: “O ye that stand on Judaism! If ye think that ye are friends to God, to the exclusion of (other) men, then express your desire for Death, if ye are truthful!” 62:6
          Muslims who want the war against non-Muslims to stop are hypocrites
          They [the hypocrites] are the ones who say, “Spend nothing on those who are with God’s Apostle, to the end that they may disperse (and quit Medina).” But to God belong the treasures of the heavens and the earth; but the Hypocrites understand not. 63:7
          Allah has prepared chains, manacles, and a raging fire for the disbelievers. 76: 4
          Anti-Jewish sentiment in the Koran:
          2.61 Wretchedness and baseness were stamped on the Jews and they were visited with wrath from Allah.
          2:96 Jews are the greediest of all humankind. They’d like to live 1000 years. But they are going to hell.
          4:160-1 For the wrongdoing Jews, Allah has prepared a painful doom.
          4.16 And for the evildoing of the Jews, we have forbidden them from some good things that were previously permitted them.
          5.82 Indeed you will surely find that the most vehement of men in enmity to those who believe are the Jews and the polytheists.
          5.60 God has cursed the Jews, transforming them into apes and swine and those who serve the devil.
          9.29 Fight against such of those have been given the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, as believe not in Allah nor the last Day.
          9.30 The Jews say that Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say the Messiah is the son of Allah. Allah attack them! How perverse they are!
          9.34 Many of the rabbis and the monks devour the wealth of mankind and wantonly debar men from the way of Allah.
          Quran-33:26- “And He brought those of the People of the Book [Jewish people of Banu Qurayza] who supported them from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts, some of them you slew (beheaded) and some you took prisoners (captive)”
          Quran-33:27- “And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things.” [Merciful Allah asked Prophet Muhammad to confiscate entire properties of surrendered Jews]
          Quran 62: A hypocritical Jew looks like an ass carrying books. Those who deny the revelations of Allah are ugly.
          Verses that show intolerance of and incite violence against non-Muslims and other religions:
          SURA
          Don’t marry non-Muslims
          2:221 Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they believe: A slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever, even though he allures you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the Fire. But God beckons by His Grace to the Garden (of bliss) and forgiveness, and makes His Signs clear to mankind: That they may celebrate His praise.
          3:24 They [Christians and Jews] say: The Fire will not touch us save for a certain number of days. That which they used to invent hath deceived them regarding their religion.” (The Fire will burn them forever.)
          3.28 Let believers not make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful. He that does this has nothing to hope for from God.

          3:54 “‘Lord, we believe in Your revelations (the Torah and Gospels) and follow this Apostle (Jesus). Enroll us among the witnesses.’ But the Christians contrived a plot and Allah did the same; but Allah’s plot was the best.”
          3:56 As for those disbelieving infidels, I will punish them with a terrible agony in this world and the next. They have no one to help or save them.
          3.85 He that chooses a religion other than Islam… in the world to come he will be one of the lost.
          3.118 Believers, do not make friends with anyone but your own people.
          4.101 The unbelievers are your inveterate enemies.
          4.156 They denied the truth and uttered a monstrous falsehood against Mary. They declared, “We have put to death the Messiah Jesus, the son of Mary, the apostle of Allah.” They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they thought they did.
          4:171 “O people of the Book (Christians), do not be fanatical in your faith, and say nothing but the truth about Allah. The Messiah who is Isa (Jesus), son of Mariam, was only a messenger of Allah, nothing more. He bestowed His Word on Mariam and His Spirit. So believe in Allah and say not Trinity for Allah is one Ilah (God)…far be it from His Glory to beget a son.”
          5.14 With those who said they were Christians…we stirred among them enmity and hatred which shall endure until the day of Resurrection.
          5:37 “The (Christian) disbelievers will long to get out of the Fire, but never will they get out there from; and theirs will be an enduring torture.”
          5.51 O you who believe! Take not the Jews and Christians for friends, they are friends one to another. He among you who takes them for friends is one of them.
          5.72 Unbelievers are those who say “God is the Messiah, the son of Mary”..Unbelievers are those who say: “God is one of three.”

          8:67 It is not fitting for an Apostle that he should have prisoners of war until He thoroughly subdued the land….” (Allah insisting Prophet to kill all the prisoners, and should not keep any surrendered prisoners alive until He (Prophet) occupied entire Arabia.
          8:71 And if they intend to act unfaithfully towards you, so indeed they acted unfaithfully towards Allah before, but He GAVE YOU MASTERY OVER THEM
          9.28 O you who believe! the idolaters are nothing but unclean, so they shall not approach the Sacred Mosque (Mecca) after this year; and if you fear poverty then Allah will enrich you out of His grace if He please; surely Allah is Knowing Wise.
          9:31 They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah son of Marium and they were enjoined that they should serve one God only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up (with Him).
          Qur’an 9:32 They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light, though the unbelievers are averse.

          Teachings Concerning Women And Paradise
          They ask thee concerning women’s courses. Say: They are a hurt and a pollution: So keep away from women in their courses, and do not approach them until they are clean. 2.222:

          Women are sexual objects : Likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223);
          And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but men have a degree (of advantage) over them. And God is Exalted in Power, Wise 2:228
          Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her. 2:282
          God (thus) directs you as regards your Children’s (Inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females 4:11
          Lewd” women should be punished with life imprisonment : If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or God ordain for them some (other) way. 4:15
          They ask thee for a legal decision. Say: God directs (thus) about those who leave no descendants or ascendants as heirs. … if there are brothers and sisters, (they share), the male having twice the share of the female. 4:176
          WIFE SWAPPING: You can change your wives. Islamic wife-swapping requires saying “talaq” three times to one of the four wives, and replacing her with another wife. 4.20
          All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. You can’t have sex with married women, unless they are slaves obtained in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like). 4:24
          If any of you have not the means wherewith to wed free believing women, they may wed believing girls from among those whom your right hands possess 4:25
          Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice. 4:3
          Tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them” (4:34).
          Men are in charge of women, because Allah made men to be better than women. Refuse to have sex with women from whom you fear rebellion, and scourge them. 4:34
          “Muslims, draw not near unto prayer…(if) ye have touched women…then go to high clean soil and rub your face and your hands.” 4:43 (Muslim women are pariahs and dirty?).
          When it’s time to pray and you have just used the toilet or touched a woman, be sure to wash up. If you can’t find any water, just rub some dirt on yourself. 5:6
          “…who restrain their carnal desires (except with their wives and slave girls, for these are lawful to them…” Again, Muslim men were allowed to have sexual relations with their wives and slave girls. 23:5,6:
          Adultery and fornication must be punished by flogging with a hundred stripes: The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by God, if ye believe in God and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment. 24:2

          Vile women are for vile men, and vile men for vile women. 24:26
          People who have committed adultery or fornication lose the right to marry chaste Muslims: Let no man guilty of adultery or fornication marry any but a woman similarly guilty, or an Unbeliever: nor let any but such a man or an Unbeliever marry such a woman: to the Believers such a thing is forbidden. 24:3
          Anyone who falsely accuses a chaste woman should be flogged with eighty stripes:And those who launch a charge against chaste women, and produce not four witnesses (to support their allegations),- flog them with eighty stripes; and reject their evidence ever after: for such men are wicked transgressors;- Unless they repent thereafter and mend (their conduct); for God is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful. 24:4-5
          Allah also said: ‘And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc) and not to show off their adornment except what must (ordinarily) appear thereof, that they should draw their veils over their Juyubihinna
          Note: Juyubihinna. The ‘big dispute’ in islam today is whether the veiled cover of the body must include the hands and face or not. Nothing else is in dispute, no naked ankles or feet, no naked arms, no hair showing, no neck exposure. As you might guess, the prevailing opinion today is that the hands and face must be covered. 24:31
          Such elderly women as are past the prospect of marriage,- there is no blame on them if they lay aside their (outer) garments, provided they make not a wanton display of their beauty: but it is best for them to be modest: and God is One Who sees and knows all things. 24:60
          Muhammad’s wives should stay in their houses
          O Consorts of the Prophet! … stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance; 33:32-33
          Allah gave Zeyd’s wife, his own daughter in law to Muhammad in marriage. This was so that all Muslims would know that it’s OK to marry your adopted son’s ex-wife.
          It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by God and His Apostle to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys God and His Apostle, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path. Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of God and thy favour: “Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear God.” But thou didst hide in thy heart that which God was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear God. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee [Muhammad]: in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their marriage) with them. And God’s command must be fulfilled. There can be no difficulty to the Prophet in what God has indicated to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of God amongst those of old that have passed away. And the command of God is a decree determined. (It is the practice of those) who preach the Messages of God, and fear Him, and fear none but God. And enough is God to call (men) to account. 33:36-39
          It follows from this revelation that the adopter may marry the ex-wife of his adopted son and vice-versa.
          “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but [he is] God’s Messenger and the Seal of the Prophets. God is Aware of everything!” 33:40
          “We married her off to you so that there would be no objection for believers in respect to their adopted sons’ wives once they have accomplished their purpose with them. God’s command must be done!” 33:37
          This verse is for Muhammad. ALLAH allows Muhammad to own and rape his slave girls.
          O Prophet, We have made lawful for thee thy wives whom thou hast given their dowries; and those whom thy right hand owns out of the spoils of war (booty) that God has given thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncle, and daughters of thy paternal aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncle, and daughters of thy maternal aunts, who have emigrated with thee, and any Believing woman, if she gives herself to the Prophet, provided the Prophet also desires to take her in marriage; it is exclusive for thee, apart from the Believers; We know what We have ordained for them concerning their wives and what their right hands own; it is so that there may be no blame on thee; and surely God is Forgiving, Merciful. 33:50
          Nobody can marry Muhammad’s widows after he is dead
          And when ye ask (his ladies) for anything ye want, ask them from before a screen: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is it right for you that ye should… marry his [Muhammad’s] widows after him at any time. Truly such a thing is in God’s sight an enormity. 33:53
          You must not speak ill of God’s apostle, nor shall you ever wed his wives after him; this would be a grave offense in the sight of Allah. 33:54
          O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) over their bodies (when outdoors). That is most convenient that they should be known and not molested.’ 33:59
          Those who “did wrong” will go to hell, and their wives will go to hell with them (no matter how they behaved). 37:22-23
          But the single-minded slaves of Allah will enjoy a Garden filled with lovely-eyed virgins. 37:40-48
          God regards women as inferior to men
          37:149-155 Now ask them their opinion: Is it that thy Lord has (only) daughters, and they have sons?- Or that We created the angels female, and they are witnesses (thereto)? Is it not that they say, from their own invention, “God has begotten children”? but they are liars! Did He (then) choose daughters rather than sons? What is the matter with you? How judge ye? Will ye not then receive admonition?
          Female companions await those who enter the Gardens of Eden on the Day of Reckoning. 38:52
          Allah will reward faithful Muslims after they die with “fair ones with wide, lovely eyes.44:54
          Allah will reward those in the Garden with beautiful wives with wide, lovely eyes. 52:20
          BABY TILTHS: 65.4 You can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age.
          And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens), and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him. 65:4
          Muhammad’s wives need to be careful. If they criticize their husband, Allah will replace them with better ones.
          O Prophet! Why holdest thou to be forbidden that which God has made lawful to thee? Thou seekest to please thy consorts. But God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. God has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths (in some cases): and God is your Protector, and He is Full of Knowledge and Wisdom. When the Prophet disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his consorts, and she then divulged it (to another), and God made it known to him, he confirmed part thereof and repudiated a part. Then when he told her thereof, she said, “Who told thee this? “He said, “He told me Who knows and is well-acquainted (with all things).” If ye two turn in repentance to Him, your hearts are indeed so inclined; But if ye back up each other against him, truly God is his Protector, and Gabriel, and (every) righteous one among those who believe,- and furthermore, the angels – will back (him) up. It may be, if he divorced you (all), that God will give him in exchange consorts better than you,- who submit (their wills), who believe, who are devout, who turn to God in repentance, who worship (in humility), who travel (for Faith) and fast,- previously married or virgins. 66:1-5
          It may be that if he divorces you, his Lord may give him in exchange wives better than you __ surrendering, believing, obedient, penitent, serving, journeying, previously married and virgins. 66:5
          And those who guard their chastity, Except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed, … Such will be the honoured ones in the Gardens (of Bliss). 70:29-30,35
          Perhaps to make up for the anticipated shortage of women in heaven, the Quran promises Muslim men beautiful virgins (houris) for their sexual pleasure (Q 44:54, 78:33, 55:56, 56:36 etc)
          “The righteous (Muslims) they shall triumph…Theirs shall be voluptuous women” – Q 78:31-33.

          “As for the righteous (Muslims)…We (Allah) shall wed them to beautiful virgins with lustrous eyes” – Q 44:51-54

            Because of your IGNORACE & lack of EDUCATION, you fail to understand that there is such a thing as PARAPHRASE: When paraphrasing, it is important to keep the original meaning and to present it in a new form. Basically, you are simply writing something in your own words that expresses the original idea.

            A TEXT OUT OF CONTEXT IS A PRETEXT

            Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax. 9:29

            Verse 9:29 forms the basis of the system of dhimmitude prevalent in the Islamic empire, which institutionalized the second-class status of non-Muslims (specifically Christians and Jews) and forced them to pay tribute for ‘protection’:

            “Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya [poll tax] with willing submission, feel themselves subdued.”
            FIGHT THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN ALLAH, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, NOR FOLLOW THE RELIGION OF TRUTH, OUT OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE BOOK [Christians and Jews], until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and THEY ARE IN A STATE OF SUBJECTION. (9:29)

            IF THE JEWS & CHRISTIANS REFUSE TO PAY THE JIZYA OR CONVERT, THEN THEY ARE TO BE KILLED!

            FIGHTING ALL PEOPLE UNTIL THEY DO WHAT?

            The Quran commands Muslims to fight all unbelievers:
            Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, 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. Sura. 9:29
            The above emphatically exhorts Muslims to conquer the following groups of people until they pay a sum of money (Jizya) as a sign of their subjection and humiliation:
            • Atheists/Agnostics (those who believe not in God nor the Last Day).
            • Jews and Christians (people of the Book).
            • Everyone else, whether Hindus/ Magians, Buddhists etc., since these groups do not prohibit what
            Muhammad forbade nor believe in Islam, the so-called “religion of Truth”.

            Please note that the passage does not limit the taking of Jizya from the Jews and Christians; it clearly says that the Jizya is to be extracted from all of the subjugated groups that are listed, i.e. those who do not believe in Allah and the last day, or forbid what Muhammad forbade etc.

            To say, as some try do, that this verse is referring only to the Jews and Christians makes absolutely no sense when we note that these groups believe in Allah and the last day, just as the Quran testifies:
            And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, “We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our God and your God is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam).” Sura. 29:46

            Those who believe (in the Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians, – any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, – on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Sura. 5:69, cf. 2:62

            This last reference presupposes that Jews and Christians are among those who believe in Allah and the last day. How, then, can the Jews and Christians be listed with those who do not believe in the existence of God and the final judgment? Doesn’t this make it rather obvious that the Quran has some other group in view besides the Jews and Christians from whom Jizya can be extracted?

            This, perhaps, explains why Muslim leaders such as Umar ibn al-Khattab took Jizya from the Persians even though they were labeled pagans, specifically al-mushrikeen or those who ascribe partners with Allah:
            Narrated Jubair bin Haiya:

            ‘Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans. When Al-Hurmuzan embraced Islam, ‘Umar said to him, “I would like to consult you regarding these countries which I intend to invade.” Al-Hurmuzan said, “Yes, the example of these countries and their inhabitants who are the enemies of the Muslims, is like a bird with a head, two wings and two legs; If one of its wings got broken, it would get up over its two legs, with one wing and the head; and if the other wing got broken, it would get up with two legs and a head, but if its head got destroyed, then the two legs, two wings and the head would become useless. The head stands for Khosrau, and one wing stands for Caesar and the other wing stands for Faris. So, order the Muslims to go towards Khosrau.” So, ‘Umar sent us (to Khosrau) appointing An-Nu’man bin Muqrin as our commander. When we reached the land of the enemy, the representative of Khosrau came out with forty-thousand warriors, and an interpreter got up saying, “Let one of you talk to me!” Al-Mughira replied, “Ask whatever you wish.” The other asked, “Who are you?” Al-Mughira replied, “We are some people from the Arabs; we led a hard, miserable, disastrous life: we used to suck the hides and the date stones from hunger; we used to wear clothes made up of fur of camels and hair of goats, and to worship trees and stones. While we were in this state, the Lord of the Heavens and the Earths, Elevated is His Remembrance and Majestic is His Highness, sent to us from among ourselves a Prophet whose father and mother are known to us. Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.” (Al-Mughira, then blamed An-Nu’man for delaying the attack and) An-Nu’man said to Al-Mughira, “If you had participated in a similar battle, in the company of Allah’s Apostle he would not have blamed you for waiting, nor would he have disgraced you. But I accompanied Allah’s Apostle in many battles and it was his custom that if he did not fight early by daytime, he would wait till the wind had started blowing and the time for the prayer was due (i.e. after midday).” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386)

            Now lest a Muslim say that the Persians were also classified as being from the people of the book note the following text:

            And this is a Book which We have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous, that ye may receive mercy: Lest ye should say: “The Book was sent down to two Peoples before us, and for our part, we remained unacquainted with all that they learned by assiduous study:” Sura. 6:155-156

            The two peoples mentioned here are the Jews and Christians:

            (Lest ye should say) so that you will not say, O people of Mecca, on the Day of Judgement: (The Scripture was revealed only to two sects) the people of two religions (before us) i.e. the Jews and Christians, (and we in sooth were unaware) ignorant (of what they read) their reading of the Torah and the Gospel; (Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs; source)

            We have revealed it, lest you should say, ‘The Scripture was revealed only upon two parties – the Jews and the Christians – before us and we (in has been softened, its noun omitted, in other words [read as] inna) indeed have been unacquainted with their study’, their reading [of the scripture], not knowing any of it, since it is not in our own language. (Tafsir al-Jalalayn; source)

            Clearly, the Quran doesn’t include anyone other than the Jews and Christians as the people of the book since they were the only ones who were given the book from Allah. Therefore, if the Quran were limiting the taking of Jizya to the people of the book then Muhammad violated the orders of his own scripture by permitting the Persians to pay it since they are not part of this group.

            In fact, Muhammad himself is reported to have permitted his followers to take Jizya from the pagans/polytheists:

            Chapter 2: APPOINTMENT OF THE LEADERS OF EXPEDITIONS BY THE IMAM AND HIS ADVICE TO THEM ON ETIQUETTES OF WAR AND RELATED MATTERS

            It has been reported from Sulaiman b. Buraid through his father that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the Muslims who were with him. He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. Then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of Muhajirs and inform them that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajirs. If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muslims and will be subjected to the Commands of Allah like other Muslims, but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai’ except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. When you lay siege to a fort and the besieged appeal to you for protection in the name of Allah and His Prophet, do not accord to them the guarantee of Allah and His Prophet, but accord to them your own guarantee and the guarantee of your companions for it is a lesser sin that the security given by you or your companions be disregarded than that the security granted in the name of Allah and His Prophet be violated. When you besiege a fort and the besieged want you to let them out in accordance with Allah’s Command, do not let them come out in accordance with His Command, but do so at your (own) command, for you do not know whether or not you will be able to carry out Allah’s behest with regard to them. (Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4294)

            All of this presupposes that Islam permits the existence of other religions and worldviews under its umbrella, provided that those who embrace such beliefs are willing to pay Jizya.

            This may account for why the following Muslim scholar believed that Quran. 9:29 refers to all disbelieving groups, not just to Jews and Christians:

            Verse 28 appearing earlier referred to Jihad against the Mushriks of Makkah. The present verses talk about Jihad against the People of the Book. In a sense, this is a prelude to the battle of Tabuk that was fought against the People of the Book. In Tafsir al-Durr al-Manthur, it has been reported from the Quran commentator, Mujahid that these verses have been revealed about the battle of Tabuk. Then, there is the reference to ‘those who were given the Book’. In Islamic religious terminology, they are referred to as ‘ahl al-Kitab’ or People of the Book. In its literal sense, it covers every disbelieving group of people who believe in a Scripture but, in the terminology of the Holy Quran, this term is used for Jews and Christians only – because, only these two groups from the People of the Book were well-known in and around Arabia. Therefore, addressing the Mushriks of Arabia, the Holy Quran has said…

            lest you should say, “The Book was sent down only upon two groups before us, were ignorant of what they studied.” – 6:156

            As for the injunction of Jihad against the People of the Book given in verse 29, it is really not particular to the People of the Book. The fact is that this very injunction applies to all disbelieving groups – because, the reasons for the injunction to fight mentioned next are common to all disbelievers. If so, the injunction has to be common too. But, the People of the Book were mentioned here particularly to serve a purpose…
            Regarding the instruction given in this verse that once these people have agreed to pay jizyah, fighting should be stopped, a little explanation may be useful. According to the majority of Muslim jurists, it includes all disbelievers – whether from the People of the Book or from those other than them. However, the Mushriks of Arabia stand excluded from it for jizyah was not accepted from them. (Mufti Shafi Usmani, Maariful Quran, Volume 4, pp. 360-361, 365; source;)

            But this contradicts other passages of the Quran, as well as specific Islamic narratives, which demand that those who claim that Allah has a son or that he has co-equal partners must convert to Islam or die:
            And an announcement from God and His Apostle, to the people (assembled) on the day of the Great Pilgrimage,- that God and His Apostle dissolve (treaty) obligations with the Pagans (al-mushrikeen- literally, those who associate partners with God). If then, ye repent, it were best for you; but if ye turn away, know ye that ye cannot frustrate God. And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith. (But the treaties are) not dissolved with those Pagans (al-mushrikeen) with whom ye have entered into alliance and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor aided any one against you. So fulfil your engagements with them to the end of their term: for God loveth the righteous. But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans (al-mushrikeen) wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. If one amongst the Pagans (al-mushrikeen) ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of God; and then escort him to where he can be secure. That is because they are men without knowledge… O ye who believe! Truly the Pagans (al-mushrikoon) are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the Sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty, soon will God enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for God is All-knowing, All-wise… The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of God, and (they take as their Lord) Christ the son of Mary; yet they were commanded to worship but One God: there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (yushrikoon) (with Him). Fain would they extinguish God’s light with their mouths, but God will not allow but that His light should be perfected, even though the Unbelievers may detest (it). It is He Who hath sent His Apostle with guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it). Sura. 9:3-6, 28, 30-33

            The foregoing plainly states that:

            • Muslims must fight and slay al-mushrikeen wherever they find them unless they repent and convert to Islam.
            • Al-mushrikeen are unclean and therefore cannot approach the sacred mosque, that is the Kaba in Mecca.
            • Jews and Christians are al-mushrikeen because they ascribe partners with God, i.e. Jews believe that Ezra is God’s son and that their rabbis are lords besides God, whereas the Christians profess that Jesus is the Son of God and that he and the Christian monks are lords in place of God.

            What this basically implies is that Muslims must fight and slay the Jews and Christians until they repent and become Muslims. The hadith literature provides substantiation for our exegesis since it quotes Muhammad as saying that he was ordered to fight the people, not just the Meccans, until they become Muslims:
            Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
            Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform a that, then they save their lives an property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24)
            Narrated Anas bin Malik:
            Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387)

            Chapter 9: COMMAND FOR FIGHTING AGAINST THE PEOPLE SO LONG AS THEY DO NOT PROFESS THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH AND MUHAMMAD IS HIS MESSENGER

            It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) breathed his last and Abu Bakr was appointed as his successor (Caliph), those amongst the Arabs who wanted to become apostates became apostates. ‘Umar b. Khattab said to Abu Bakr: Why would you fight against the people, when the Messenger of Allah declared: I have been directed to fight against people so long as they do not say: There is no god but Allah, and he who professed it was granted full protection of his property and life on my behalf except for a right? His (other) affairs rest with Allah. Upon this Abu Bakr said: By Allah, I would definitely fight against him who severed prayer from Zakat, for it is the obligation upon the rich. By Allah, I would fight against them even to secure the cord (used for hobbling the feet of a camel) which they used to give to the Messenger of Allah (as zakat) but now they have withheld it. Umar b. Khattab remarked: By Allah, I found nothing but the fact that Allah had opened the heart of Abu Bakr for (perceiving the justification of) fighting (against those who refused to pay Zakat) and I fully recognized that the (stand of Abu Bakr) was right. (Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0029)

            It is reported on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah, and he who professed it was guaranteed the protection of his property and life on my behalf except for the right affairs rest with Allah. (Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0030)

            It is narrated on the authority of Jabir that the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded that I should fight against people till they declare that there is no god but Allah, and when they profess it that there is no god but Allah, their blood and riches are guaranteed protection on my behalf except where it is justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah, and then he (the Holy Prophet) recited (this verse of the Holy Qur’an): “Thou art not over them a warden” (lxxxviii, 22). (Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0032)
            It has been narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer, and pay Zakat and if they do it, their blood and property are guaranteed protection on my behalf except when justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah. (Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0033)

            And:

            And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I have been sent just before the Hour with the sword, so that Allaah will be worshipped ALONE with no partner or associate.” Narrated by Ahmad, 4869; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2831. (Question No. 34647: The reason why jihaad is prescribed; source; capital and underline emphasis ours)

            Thus, even Jews and Christians, not just the Arab pagans, had to convert to Islam otherwise Muslims would have to kill them as well if they didn’t.

            This further implies that Jews and Christians could not approach Mecca since, being al-mushrikeen, they are unclean. We again find the hadiths substantiating this very point:

            Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
            Umar expelled the Jews and the Christians from Hijaz. When Allah’s Apostle had conquered Khaibar, he wanted to expel the Jews from it as its land became the property of Allah, His Apostle, and the Muslims. Allah’s Apostle intended to expel the Jews but they requested him to let them stay there on the condition that they would do the labor and get half of the fruits. Allah’s Apostle told them, “We will let you stay on thus condition, as long as we wish.” So, they (i.e. Jews) kept on living there until ‘Umar forced them to go towards Taima’ and Ariha’. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 39, Number 531)
            It has been narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattab that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim. (Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4366)

            To summarize the contradictions:

            • Quran. 9:29 along with certain Islamic narrations teach that Muslims are to fight all the unbelievers until they pay the Jizya and feel subdued. This presupposes that Islam allows even pagans to live under Muslim rule without having to convert to the Islamic faith.

            • Quran. 9:1-6, 28, 30-33 all say that Muslims are to kill those who associate other beings with God, including Jews and Christians, until they repent and become Muslims. The hadith literature provides attestation that this is precisely what Muhammad commanded, specifically, that he (and subsequently his followers) was to fight all the people until they became Muslims. This naturally assumes that Jews and Christians, not just the pagans, must convert to the Islamic faith or die.

            There is a way in which Muslims can reconcile Quran. 9:29 with what immediately precedes and follows. One can understand from Sura 9 that all those who convert to Islam, whether pagans, Jews, Christians etc., are to pay Jizya as a sign that they have been subdued and brought into the fold of Islam.

            Although this may solve the contradiction within the Quran it doesn’t help resolve the problems raised by the hadith literature. The Islamic narratives quote Muhammad as expressly stating that the people must be fought until they testify that Allah is god and that he is his messenger which not only contradicts the Quran but also conflicts with the other reports that we quoted where Muslims allowed pagans such as the Persians to remain in their religion provided that they paid Jizya.

            Hence, no matter how a Muslim tries to reconcile all of this some of the contradictions will still remain.

            THE TERMINATION OF ISRAEL A QURANIC FACT
            MISSION ISLAM
            By Sheikh Abu Al-Waleed Al-Ansari,
            Translated by Abu Al-Waleed Al-Hamawi

            It is evident that Allah has Promised to subject upon the corrupted Children of Israel His believing servants who will afflict them with a horrible torment…
            Praise be to Allah who grants dominance to whom He wills and deprives it of whom He wills. He is the Enricher and the Preventer. He the Almighty Says:
            “And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allah may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allah likes not the Zalimun” [Qur’an 3:140].
            Peace and blessings upon His servant and messenger who was sent as a Mercy to this world. He (saws) said: “Verily, this matter (i.e. this Religion) will reach what the night and the day has reached (i.e. the whole earth). Allah will not exclude an urban nor a nomad household without which this religion would have entered” [Reported by Ahmad].
            During these times when the affliction upon the people of Islam is exacerbated, Islam continues to suffer ruthless attacks by its cunning enemies. These are the times of hardship and agony when the Muslim struggles to convince himself about the reality of the inverted facts. This is expected when polytheism becomes religious monotheism, when adulation of the enemies of Allah is regarded as wisdom and craftiness, when slackening to support and defend the oppressed Muslims is a sign of intelligence and aptitude. In short, when truth becomes falsehood and falsehood becomes truth. Living these critical times, one feels the urgent need of those honest and trustworthy people of knowledge and religion who are sincere to Allah, His Book, His Messenger and to the Imams of the Muslims and their common folk.
            Unfortunately, we observe that many of those who claim to have knowledge are negligent in declaring the truth and in inviting people to it. Instead they garnish the falsehood and dissolute its identity in order to justify their negligence while accepting the transient adornments of this world. This lead the ignorant blind-followers to regard the statements made by these false men of religion as true evidence to dismiss them from preparing for revival.
            One of the consequences of this chronic disease that was caught by the Muslim Ummah is the content and approval of our people when the infidel rulers of today held a permanent accord with the Jews. Those who did not approve this accord were nevertheless influenced by the fabrications made by those rulers and said: “The presence of the Jews on the land of Palestine has become an unavoidable reality that we must accept. The Ummah must now be prepared to deal with it!!”. There are also those poor and defeated people who thought that this cursed accord will relieve their difficulties. The best of those people were crying: “Land in exchange for peace”. All those people overlooked the fact that this is a matter of Kufr and Iman and that it is a trial from Allah to test His servants and to distinguish the wicked from the good, and to witness those who will give victory to the religion by sincerely fighting for Allah’s Cause, as He the Most High said:
            “Do you think that you shall be left alone while Allah has not yet tested those among you who have striven hard and fought and have not taken Walijah [(helpers, consultants from disbelievers, pagans, etc.) giving openly to them their secrets] besides Allah and His Messenger, and the believers. Allah is Well-Aquatinted with what you do” [Qur’an 9:16],
            “Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, ‘When (will come) the Help of Allah?’ Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near!” [Qur’an 2:214].
            Indeed it is a trial and an affliction by Allah who promised to give victory, honour and consolidation to the believers. There is no doubt that disbelief and falsehood will be abolished, in particular the state of the Jews who earned Allah’s Anger, the murderers of the Prophets and the enemies of the Messengers. The termination of this state is announced in the Book of our Lord and proclaimed by our Prophet (saws).
            Allah (swt) States: “And we decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that indeed you would do mischief on the earth twice and you will become tyrants and extremely arrogant! So, when the promise came for the first of the two, We sent against you slaves of Ours given to terrible warfare. They entered the very innermost parts of your homes. And it was a promise (completely) fulfilled. Then We gave you once again, a return of victory over them. And We helped you with wealth and children and made you more numerous in manpower. (And We said): ‘If you do well, you do good for your ownselves, and if you do evil (you do it) against yourselves’. Then, when the second promise came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to make your faces sorrowful and to enter the mosque (of Jerusalem) as they had entered it before, and to destroy with utter destruction all that fell in their hands. [And We Said in the Taurat (Torah)]: ‘It may be that your Lord may show mercy unto you, but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment). And We have made Hell a prison for the disbelievers” [Qur’an 17:4-8].
            In the previous verses, Allah (swt) mentions how the Children of Israel rebelled and disobeyed the Command of Allah, and how they became extremely arrogant. The Qur’anic Mufasiroon (commentators) – May Allah have mercy upon them – have lengthily described how the Jews did mischief on this earth twice. Most of them report that the doing of mischief twice had passed when the Jews killed Zachariah (as) and then killed Yahiah (John) son of Zachariah (as). However, the scholar Al-Shinqeety -may Allah have mercy on him- says in his Tafseer (Adwa’ul-Bayaan), that their conclusions were based on Israi’liat (Jewish reports). Al-Shinqeety in commenting on the verse ‘But if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment)’, says:
            “The Most High explains how he decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture, that indeed they will do mischief on the earth twice. When the first promise came, He sent against them slaves of His given to terrible warfare who occupied their homes and tortured them. Then, when the second promise came to pass, He sent to them a tribe that made their faces sorrowful and who entered the mosque (of Jerusalem) as they had entered it before, and who destroyed with utter destruction all that fell in their hands. He (swt) also explained that if they return to doing mischief for the third time, then He will return to take revenge from them by subjecting their enemies upon them ‘but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment)’.
            Moreover, Allah (swt) did not explain here whether they have or have not returned to mischief for the third time. However, He did indicate in many other verses that they have returned to mischief by disbelieving in the Messenger [i.e. Muhammad (saws)], by covering his characteristics that are mentioned in their books, and by breaking their covenant with him and supporting his enemies, and many of their other hideous habits. So Allah (swt) has retaliated to fulfil ‘but if you return (to sins), We shall return (to Our Punishment)’ by sending His Prophet (saws) and the Muslims upon Bani Quraitha and An-Naddeer, Bani Qainuqa’ and Khaybar where they were killed, made captives and expelled, and those who remained were forced to pay the Jiziah, so that they were deprived and dishonored. Among the verses that prove their return to mischief is the Sayings of the Most High:
            ‘And when there came to them (the Jews), a Book (this Qur’an) from Allah confirming what is with them [Torah and the Gospel], although a foretime they had invoked Allah [for coming of Muhammad (saws] in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then when there came to them that which they had recognized, they disbelieved in it. So let the Curse of Allah be on the disbelievers. How bad is that for which they have sold their ownselves, that they should disbelieve in that which Allah has revealed (the Qur’an), grudging that Allah should reveal of His Grace unto whom He wills of His slaves. So they have drawn on themselves wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers, there is disgracing torment’ [Qur’an 2:88-90],
            and His Saying: ‘Is it not (the case) that every time they make a covenant, some party among them throws it aside?’ [Qur’an 2:100],
            and His Saying: ‘And you will not cease to discover deceit in them..’ [Qur’an 5:13],
            and His Saying: ‘And those of the people of the Scripture backed them (the disbelievers) – Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land, which you had not trodden (before)’ [Qur’an 33:26-27]”. [Adwa’ ul-Bayaan 3/408]
            It is evident that Allah has Promised to subject upon the corrupted Children of Israel His believing servants who will afflict them with a horrible torment. And here they are today, they have become tyrants and extremely arrogant, they have spoiled the tillage and the progeny and caused mischief on earth. We ask the Almighty to hasten His Promise for He has Stated:
            “And (remember when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (ie. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft-Forgiving (for the obedient and those who beg Allah’s Forgiveness)” [Qur’an 7:167].
            Commenting on this verse, Ibn Katheer reports how Mousa (as) forced the Jews to pay land tax, then they were conquered by the Greeks, the Kashdanies and others, then they were surmounted and degraded by the Christians, then when Muhammad (saws) came, they were under Islam’s subjugation and custody, compelled to pay the land tax and Jiziah. Finally, their end will come when they emerge as supporters of Ad-Dajjal (Anti-Christ), who will be killed by Eesa bin Maryam (Jesus) (as) and the Muslims. This battle will take place at the end of time. [Tafseer Ibn Katheer 2/288]
            The Praiseworthy Said: “The Jews say: ‘Allah’s Hand is tied up (ie. He does not give or spend of His Bounty)’. Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay, both His Hands are widely outstretched. He spends (of His Bounty) as He wills. Verily, the Revelation that has come to you from Allah increases in most of them their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. We have put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it; and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief-makers)” [5:64].
            In this verse, Allah (swt) revealed how their Kuffr, extreme envy and departure from the truth, led them to deceive the believers. He (swt) further revealed that He will defend His believing servants and will repel the conspiracy of the Jews in two ways:
            Firstly, He (swt) has put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection, they will never agree upon the truth so long as they deny and disbelieve in the Prophet (saws).
            “You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided” [59:14].
            Secondly, Allah (swt) has promised to extinguish every fire of war they kindle. Hence, every time they betrayed the Prophet (saws) and the Muslims or continue to contest the religion of Allah, He the Almighty abolishes their cunning ambitions.
            It is important for the Muslim to know the characteristics of the Jews that are mentioned in Allah’s Book because it will be these characteristics that will initiate their downfall and humiliation. Some of these distinctive characteristics of the Jews are explained below:
             They like to spread mischief and corruption on earth and strive hard to accomplish this, “and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief-makers)” [5:64].
             They have incurred the Curse and Wrath of Allah. The consensus opinion of the Imams of Tafseer regarding the people asserted in the verse, “those who earned Your Anger” [1:7] is the Jews. This opinion is supported by the Allah’s Saying:
             “Say [O Muhammad (saws) to the people of the Scripture]: ‘Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swine’s, those who worshiped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in Hell-fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)” [5:60].
             They are people of indignity, disobedience and transgression as Stated by Allah (swt): “Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allah, and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved in the Ayats (evidences, verses, revelations, etc.) of Allah and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allah) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allah’s disobedience, crimes and sins)” [3:112].
             They are people of cowardliness, dismay and weakness as described by Allah (swt): “They fight not against you even together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls. Their enmity among themselves is very great” [59:14],
             “and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped” [3:111].
             As a result of the above, they tend to adhere strongly to this life even if it was a humiliating villainous life, as Allah Said:
             “And verily, you will find them (the Jews) the greediest of mankind for life..” [2:96].
             Furthermore, they will always remain divided and disagreed among themselves; and conceal enmity and hatred towards each other as verified by Allah (swt): “We have put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection” [5:64]. and “You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided” [59:14].
             This is a great advantage for Muslims since during wars and fighting, their ranks will disunite and their assemblies will disintegrate.
            If one is to follow the stories of the Jews in Surat Al-Baqarah, Al-A’araf and others, and how they treated their prophets, one would find wonders. Their disbelief and rejection of the Message of Allah with utmost arrogance is the true nature of the Jews. That is why no deviant nation has been Cursed by Allah more than that of the children of Israel. They truly earned the Wrath and Resentment of Allah, and thus they have lost all the factors of survival and existence.
            As for the glad tidings of the Sunnah which were articulated by the trusted and the trustworthy Muhammad (saws), Ibn Umar (ra) narrates that the Prophet (saws) said: “The Dajjal (anti-Christ) will appear behind the city, then Allah will exploit the Muslims to kill his followers, so that the Jew would hide under a tree or (behind) a stone, and that tree or stone will say to the Muslim: ‘There is a Jew (hiding behind me)! Kill him’ ” [Reported by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad].
            The Prophet’s (saws) saying, ‘You will fight the Jews’ is addressed to the Companions; however, within the context it intends those who come after them. The above mentioned Ahadeeth and others confirm the occurrence of a battle with the Jews wherein they will be killed. Those Ahadeeth embody great tidings for this Ummah, which are the continuity of the religion of Islam till the time when E’esa bin Maryam (as) descends and the continual existence of the Supported Group (At-Ta’ifah Al-Mansoorah) which will continue to fight till he (as) descends as stated by the Prophet (saws):
            “There will always remain a group from among my Ummah who will continue to fight by the truth, they are apparent to those who oppose them, until the last (followers) of them fight the Maseeh Ad-Dajjal” [Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawood].
            The Ahadeeth that describes At-Taai’fah Al-Mansoorah are famous and numerous in both of the Saheehs and other compilations. Many of the Sahabah (ra) narrated the descriptions of this group which include the fact that they establish Allah’s Commands, and that they are supported and upheld by Allah (swt).
            The above mentioned sacred verses and narrations indicate that this Ummah has been promised victory and consolidation when it abides by the prerequisite causative means, ie. when it arms itself with steeds of war and prepares itself to fight for the Cause of Allah (swt). Thereafter, the State of the Jews will perish.
            Taken from Nida’ul Islam

      • THE QURAN IS PROOF THAT MUHAMMAD WAS ILLITERATE – COULDN’T READ OR WRITE!
        HE LISTENED TO THE PAGANS, JEWS & CHRISTIANS TALKING ABOUT THEIR SCRIPTURES, BUT BECAUSE HE WAS UNEDUCATED, HE GOT THINGS ARSEWAYS! THERE IS NO CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER TO THE QURAN & IT HAS THE APPEARENCE OF BEING PUT TOGETHER BY A SCHIOPHRENIC!
        MUHAMMAD WOULD HAVE GOT A D-MINUS FOR HIS ATTEMPT.

        DIVINE QURAN OR COSMIC JOKE?

        According to the Islamic theology, the Koran was written by Allah in heaven and has no human authors. Indeed, the Koran claims that the revelations given in it (that were not revealed in the previous Scriptures) are new (Sura 2:151). According to the non-Muslims that lived in Mecca, however, the Koran was filled with a bunch of old myths, fairy tails, and legends that the people who lived and traveled in the area commonly told. Unless stated otherwise, all Koran quotes are from Pickthall’s translation:

        “And they say: Fables of the men of old which he hath had written down so that they are dictated to him morn and evening.”

        -Sura 25:5

        The Koran’s response to this is to deny it completely and call it a lie:

        “…so that they have produced a slander and a lie.”

        -Sura 25:4

        The Koran affirms that everything in the Koran is a revelation from God and not a fairy tale from a human author.

        On the contrary, it can be shown that the un-believers in Mecca were right. The stories told in the Koran are nothing more than Jewish, Christian, Arabic, and Persian apocryphal fables, legends, fairy-tales and other fictional narratives that were told in the area of Mecca in the 7th century. They are not a *revelation* from God.

        MECCA DURING THE TIME OF MUHAMMAD

        As a child, Muhammad was a normal Arab who liked to talk with people of various nationalities traveling in caravans. Mecca was a city where traders from all over the Middle East would come to trade along the trade routes. They would bring their stories from their respective cultures and tell them to the locals.

        Also, after the destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, the Jews scattered across the world. One of the places that some of them scattered to was southern Arabia with a large community in Medina. They likewise brought some of their apocryphal fables out of the Midrash and Mishna with them and told these stories to the Arabs.

        Lastly, after their views of Christ were considered heretical by an ecumenical council, the Emperor banished Nestorian Christians outside the borders of the Empire. The Nestorians, because they originated in the east, moved in the direction of the closest border, eastward, and many ended up in Arabia. They set up monasteries there and along the caravan routes that Muhammad would travel on. Two important men in Muhammad’s life, Waraqa ibn Nofal, who was considered Muhammad’s uncle, and Buhaira, a monk who taught Muhammad some things about the Bible, were both Nestorians. The Nestorians likewise brought their apocryphal stories to Arabia and told them to those who passed along the trade routes.

        In the end, it all makes sense. Muhammad learned all of these creative stories from those he came in contact with. When he proclaimed to all that he was a prophet, he retold these imaginative and poetic narratives under the pretense of revelation. This is one of the reasons that the Koran seems so poetic and elegant at times.

        THE FABLE & LEGENDS

        ARABIC LEGENDS

        THE JINN

        In multiple places, the Koran speaks of a created race of beings called Jinn (Suras 18:50, 72:1, etc.). However, in the west, we commonly call them genies. [Yes, the same genies from Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, I Dream of Genie, etc.] These jinn, spirit beings who lived in caves, the ground, trees, and other natural places, were a popular superstition in Arabia before Islam, and scholars have noted this animistic influence on Islam for quite some time now:

        http://www.answering-islam.org/Books/Zwemer/Animism/chap7.htm

        ARAB POETRY
        In Muhammad’s day, many Arab poets resided in Mecca, and one poet’s daughter accused Muhammad of taking one of her father’s poems and putting it in the Koran as if it were Divine revelation (Sura 54:1, 29, 31, 46):

        “Imraul Qais’s daughter once heard this Surat recited aloud. She immediately recognized her father’s poem and demanded to know how her father’s verses had become part of a divine revelation, supposedly preserved on stone tablets in heaven!”

        – Dr. Anis A. Shorrosh, Islam Unveiled (Nashville, Tenn.: Thomas Nelson, 1988), p.193.

        THE SHE CAMEL STORY

        The story told in the Koran about the prophet and the rock that ‘gave birth’ to a she-camel was a well known narrative in the Middle East at the time of Muhammad (Sura 7:73-79).

        THE STORY OF THE 12 SPRINGS

        The story in Sura 2:60 about Moses striking a rock with his staff and 12 springs of water for each of the twelve tribes coming forth was a Jewish and Arab legend that was around well before Islam.

        JEWISH LEGENDS

        ABRAHAM & NIMROD

        The narrative about Abraham mocking the people for their idols and being saved by God from Nimrod’s fire in Sura 21:51-71 is clearly from the Midrash Rabbah. Here is Sura 21:58-69:

        “Then he reduced them to fragments, all save the chief of them, that haply they might have recourse to it. They said: Who hath done this to our gods? Surely it must be some evil-doer. They said: We heard a youth make mention of them, who is called Abraham. They said: Then bring him (hither) before the people’s eyes that they may testify. They said: Is it thou who hast done this to our gods, O Abraham? He said: But this, their chief hath done it. So question them, if they can speak. Then gathered they apart and said: Lo! Ye yourselves are the wrong-doers. And they were utterly confounded, and they said: Well thou knowest that these speak not. He said: Worship ye then instead of Allah that which cannot profit you at all, not harm you? Fie on you and all that ye worship instead of Allah! Have ye then no sense? They cried: Burn him and stand by your gods, if ye will be doing. We said: O fire, be coolness and peace for Abraham…”

        -Sura 21:58-69

        Now, compare that to the narrative from the Midrash Rabbah:

        “Abraham getting up took his staff in his hand, and having broken the idols with it…placed the staff in the hand of the largest (idol). His father coming up said: who has done this?

        Abraham said…the largest one took the staff and broke them all to pieces. His father said, why do you tell such a foolish tale? Do these (idols) know anything? Nimrod said: If you argue with me about things which I am unable to worship other than fire, into it I will cast you. So let the god you worship deliver you therefrom. So Abraham went down into the flames and remained there safe and unhurt.”

        -Midrash Rabbah

        CAIN, ABEL & THE RAVEN

        The story in Sura 5:27-32 about a raven covering up Abel’s body after Cain killed him most certainly came from a tradition preserved by Pirke Rabbi Eleazar and the Jewish Mishnah. The following is from the Koran:

        “But (the other’s) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers. Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother’s naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother’s naked corpse? And he became repentant. For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.”

        -Sura 5:30-32

        The following is from Pirke Rabbi Eleazar (notice the parallels between this and Sura 5:30-31):

        “Adam and Eve, sitting by the corpse (of Abel) wept not knowing what to do, for they had as yet no knowledge of burial. A Raven coming up, took the dead body of its fellow (mate), and having scratched up the earth, buried it thus before their eyes. Adam said, “Let us follow the example of the Raven,” and so taking up Abel’s body buried it at once.”

        -Pirke Rabbi Eleazar

        The following is from the Jewish Mishnah (notice the parallels between this and Sura 5:32):

        “We find in the case of Cain who murdered his brother, the voice of thy brother’s blood cries (Genesis 4:10). It is not said here blood in the singular, but bloods in the plural. That is, his own blood and the blood of his seed. Man was created single in order to show that to him who kills a single individual (a human being) it shall be reckoned (counted) that he has slain the whole race; but to him who preserves the life of a single individual, it is counted that he has preserved the whole race.”

        -Jewish Mishnah, Sanhedrin 4:5

        THE HOVERING MOUNT SINAI

        The tale about God lifting up Mount Sinai over the Israelites as a threat if they did not follow the Law comes from the second century A.D. Jewish fable, Abodah Sarah. Here is Sura 7:171:

        “And when We shook the Mount above them as it were a covering, and they supposed that it was going to fall upon them (and We said): Hold Fast that which We have given you, and remember that which is therein, that ye may ward off (evil).”

        -Sura 7:171

        Now, here is part of Abodah Sarah:

        “I raised (by shaking it from its roots) the Mountain (Sinai) to be a covering over you as it were, a lid.”

        -from Abodah Sarah

        THE LIVING GOLDEN CALF

        The narrative in which the golden calf-idol that the rebellious Israelites forge actually moos (Sura 20:85-88) is from a Jewish legend that was recorded by Pirke Rabbi Eleazar. Sura 20:85-88:

        “He said: Lo! We have tried thy folk in thine absence, and As-Samiri hath misled them. Then Moses went back unto his folk, angry and sad. He said: O my people! Hath not your Lord promised you a fair promise? Did the time appointed appear too long for you, or did ye wish that wrath from your Lord should come upon you, that ye broke tryst with me? They said: We broke not tryst with thee of our own will, but we were laden with burdens of ornaments of the folk, then cast them (in the fire), for thus As-Samiri proposed. Then he produced for them a calf, of saffron hue, which gave forth a lowing sound. And they cried: This is your god and the god of Moses, but he hath forgotten.”

        -Sura 20:85-88

        Now, compare this to Pirke Rabbi Eleazar:

        “And this calf came out lowing, and the Israelites saw it. Rabbi Yehudah says that Sammael was hidden in its interior, and was lowing in order that he might deceive Israel.”

        -from Pirke Rabbi Eleazar, Part 45

        SAVING PHARAOH OUT OF THE SEA

        The story of Sura 10:90-92 where Pharaoh is saved by God from the enclosing Red Sea that Moses and the Israelites journeyed through is from Pirke Rabbi Eleazar and Midrash Yalkut. Here is Sura 10:90-92:

        “And we brought the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh with his hosts pursued them in rebellion and transgression, till, when the (fate of) drowning overtook him, he exclaimed: I believe that there is no God save Him in Whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of those who surrender (unto Him). What! Now! When hitherto thou hast rebelled and been of the wrong-doers? But this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayst be a portent for those after thee. Lo! Most of mankind are heedless of Our portents.”

        -Surah 10:90-92

        Compare that to Pirke Rabbi Eleazar and Midrash Yalkut:

        “Perceive the great power of repentance! Pharaoh, king of Egypt, uttered very wicked words-‘Who is the god whose voice I shall obey? (Exod. 5:2). Yet as he repented, saying, ‘Who is like unto thee among the gods?’ (Exod. 15:2). God saved him from death; for it saith; ‘Almost had I stretched out my hands and destroyed; but God let him live, that he might declare his power and strength.’”

        -Pirke Rabbi Eleazar, Part 43; Midrash Yalkut, Part 238

        [It must be noted that Muslims attempt to use the above Surah to prove the Divine inspiration of the Koran. It is believed that the body of the Pharaoh of the Exodus was found in the late nineteenth century, and Muslims argue that Muhammad could not have known that the Pharaoh survived except through Divine revelation. However, as I have shown above, the Jews beat Muhammad to it by several centuries. If this is any indication of inspiration (which its not), then the credit must go the Talmudic compilers and not to the Koran. Yet again, we have proof of Muhammad receiving his “revelations” from human sources.]

        SOLOMON & THE HOOPOE BIRD

        The story about Solomon, the Hoopoe Bird, and the Queen of Sheba in Sura 27:17-44 undoubtedly comes from the Jewish II Targum of Esther. Because the passages are so long, I will not cite them here, but instead, I will list the literary parallels that prove that this Koranic story comes straight out of the II Targum of Esther:

        1. Both start out with Solomon gathering together armies of jinn (i.e. genies) and men.
        2. Both have Solomon searching for a bird and saying that he will kill it for disobeying his orders.
        3. Both have the bird appearing and talking to Solomon about the Queen of Sheba.
        4. Both have the Queen of Sheba worshipping some part of nature (i.e. idolatry).
        5. Both have Solomon sending a letter to the Queen of Sheba, and the Queen of Sheba asks for the advice of her nobles.
        6. Both have the Queen of Sheba entering into a palace made of glass, and thinking it to be water, she lifts up her dress a bit.
        7. Both have Solomon crying out to her that it is not water but glass when he sees the hair on her legs.

        LEGENDS & THE QURAN

        This article considers the relation of the Qur’an, the central religious text of Islam, and myths and legends. “Myths are narratives that serve to explain and describe the experienced world by laying bare its archetypal patterns; they are often staged in a cosmic or supernatural framework so as to manifest binding truths, to generate meaning and provide guidance. Legends, raising no such universal claim, may be understood as narratives of pious imagination celebrating an exemplary figure.” [1]
        Whether the Qur’an contains myths or legends is a hyper-sensitive and controversial question since “the term ‘myth,’ in particular, is sometimes thought to be irreconcilable with the concept of revelation.”[1] The Qur’an contains many religious accounts considered legendary or derivative by non-Muslim historians.[2] Most of this literature was created hundreds of years after the events they document, therefore they are not considered to have any historical accuracy. The content is usually Jewish folklore rejected by Jewish scholars. Historians and source critics think that Muhammad mistook these accounts for being orthodox Jewish and Christian beliefs and therefore incorporated them into the Qur’an.[3] Critics of Islam therefore conclude that the Qur’an cannot be from God because it contains these unhistorical legends.

        THE QURAN’S RESPONSE

        During Muhammad’s lifetime, non-Muslims accused Muhammad of borrowing from “tales of the ancients” to compose the Qur’an. Because Muslims believe that the Qur’an was not revealed all at once, the Qur’an quotes these critics.

        “But the misbelievers say: “Naught is this but a lie which he has forged, and others have helped him at it.” The disbelievers of that time were the ones who accused him of lying but other ones that were on his side were the ones who helped him at it. And they say: “Tales of the ancients, which he has caused to be written: and they are dictated before him morning and evening.” Say: “The (Qur’an) was sent down by Him who knows the mystery (that is) in the heavens and the earth: verily He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Qur’an [Qur’an 25:4-6]) –translated by Yusuf Ali ”

        SATAN & ADAM

        In the Qur’an, Satan originally has favor with God. When God creates Adam, he commands all the angels to bow to him. Satan refuses to bow to Adam and is therefore rebuked by God. The apocryphal Jewish work Life of Adam and Eve also contains this narrative.

        QURAN

        “Behold! thy Lord said to the angels: “I am about to create man, from sounding clay from mud moulded into shape; “When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him.” So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together: Not so Iblis: he refused to be among those who prostrated themselves. (God) said: “O Iblis! what is your reason for not being among those who prostrated themselves?” (Iblis) said: “I am not one to prostrate myself to man, whom Thou didst create from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape.”

        [Qur’an 15:28]

        THE LIFE OF ADAM & EVE

        “Then Michael came; he summoned all the troops of angels and told them, “Bow down before the likeness and the image of the divinity.” And then, when Michael summoned them and all had bowed down to you, he summoned me [Satan] also. And I told him, “Go away from me, for I shall not bow down to him who is younger than me; indeed, I am master prior to him and it is proper for him to bow down to me. [2] ”

        Additionally, some confusion comes from the Qur’anic passage because in it God speaks to the angels, implying that Satan is an angel while elsewhere in Islam Satan is called a jinn instead, this is because of the grammatical rule called tagleeb in the arabic language, in which the majority in a certain area gets the noun. For example, if in a room there is 100 boys and one girl, the tagleeb rule applies all in the room as boys because they are the majority but the girl is still a girl, thus when God says to the angels “Prostrate” Satan was in the area but is not an angel.

        ANIMAL NAMES

        According to the Qur’an, God dictates the names of the animals to Adam. This element is similar, but the opposite of Genesis, that tells about the naming of the animals but says that Adam named them. There is a document written later than Genesis and before the Qur’an that might link these two accounts.
        “ The wisdom of Adam displayed itself to greatest advantage when he gave names to the animals. . . . But without the gift of the holy spirit, Adam could not have found names for all.[4] ”

        KILLING ALL MANKIND

        The Qur’an says that because of the murder of Abel by Cain,

        “ . . . That if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. . . . Qur’an [Qur’an 5:32] –Translated by Yusuf Ali ”

        The Qur’an does not tell the reason for the connection between Abel and this proverb, but the Jewish Mishnah does.

        “For this reason, man [i.e. the first human being] was created alone to teach that whoever destroys a single life is as though he had destroyed an entire universe, and whoever saves a single life is as if he had saved an entire universe.

        (Mishnah Sanhedrin, 4:5)[5]

        Note that the Mishnah is respected by most Jews as human commentary, not divine.

        ABRAHAM IDOL WRECKER

        A Jewish depiction of Abraham smashing the idols

        The Qur’an has the same story as the Midrashic about Abraham smashing idols contained in Midrash Bereishit 38:13 and Surah 21 in the Qur’an. Abraham’s father was an idolater but Abraham is a devout monotheist. Abraham breaks many idols and the people try to burn him until God rescues Abraham.

        Qur’an surah and verse Qur’an quote Midrash

        21.51 “What are these images, to which ye are (so assiduously) devoted?” “Then why do you pray to them and worship them?”[6]
        21.57 “after ye go away and turn your backs” “the woman rushed out into the street”[7]
        21.58 So he broke them to pieces, (all) but the biggest of them “he broke them all except the largest”[8]
        21.62 They said, “Art thou the one that did this with our gods, O Abraham?” “‘What hast thou done?’ they demanded, angrily.”[9]
        21.63 He said: “Nay, this was done by – this is their biggest one! ask them, if they can speak intelligently!” “I? Nothing,” answered Abraham. “See, the largest idol . . . It seems to me that he has been angry and has killed all the others. Ask him why he did this.”[10]
        21.65 “Thou knowest full well that these (idols) do not speak!” “‘They cannot speak,’ said Terah.”[11]
        21.68 They said, “Burn him and protect your gods, Let them be bound and cast into the furnace[12]
        21.69 We said, “O Fire! be thou cool, and (a means of) safety for Abraham! “Abraham walked unharmed in the flames”[13]
        21.70 We made them the ones that lost most! “Twelve men in all perished . . . Haran was burned to ashes at once”[14]

        The Qur’an does not explain what it means that the idolaters lost more than Abraham, but the Midrash explains. The story is accepted by Jews as non-historical and created by Jews who were warning of following the Greek gods. Elements of the story probably have roots in the Apocalypse of Abraham and the Book of Jubilees. Abraham’s father’s name is Azar in the Qur’an and Terah in the Midrash and Bible

        “ . . . though some of the later Arab writers give the name . . . as Tera&;. Others claim that Azar was his real name, while Teraḥ was his surname (Nawawi, “Biographical Dict. of Illustrious Men,” p. 128; but see Jawaliḳi, “Al-Mu’arrab,” ed. Sachau, p. 21; “Z. D. M. G.” xxxiii. 214). Still a third class of authorities say that Azar means either “the old man” or “the perverse one.” [15] ”

        However Shia Muslims believe that Azar is Abraham’s Uncle, and that he looked after Abraham like a son when his biological father died.

        MOSES’ MILK
        God forbids Moses from suckling from a foster mother in both the Qur’an and Talmud.

        “ And We had already forbidden foster suckling mothers for him, until [his sister] said: Shall I show you a household who will rear him for you and take care of him?” [Qur’an 28:12] ”

        “ The Holy One, Blessed is He, said: “Shall the mouth that will one day speak to me suckle from anything unclean?” [16] ”

        PHARAOH’S MAGICIANS

        Pharaoh’s magicians in the Bible magically turn their staffs into snakes, but the Qur’an says this was only a trick and that the magicians convert and follow Moses. Ambrosiaster, a 4th century biblical commentary, also says the magic was a trick and they converted:
        “ Jannes and Jambres were two brothers, magicians and enchanters of the Egyptians, who through phony magic thought to resist God’s mighty acts. But worsted by Moses they confessed in pain from their sores that God was active in Moses.[17] ”

        KORAH’S KEYS

        The Qur’an describes Korah as exceedingly wealthy in the same way as the Talmud.
        “ Korah was one of Moses’ people, but he betrayed them and oppressed them. We gave him so many treasures that the keys would certainly weigh down a company of men possessed of great strength. [Qur’an 28:76] ”

        “ And Rabbi Levi said: “The keys to Korah’s treasure house was a load for 300 white mules and the keys and locks were leather.” [18] ”

        FLYING MOUNTAIN

        Both the Qur’an and the Talmud tell the story of God raising a mountain over the Israelites
        “We raised the mountain over them as if it had been a canopy, and they thought that it was going to fall on them. (We said): “Hold firmly to what We have given you.” [Qur’an 7:171] ”

        “The Holy One, blessed is He, raised a mountain over Israel as though it were a dome. And He said to them: if you hold to the Torah all is well, but if not you will be buried here! [19] ”

        THE CAVE

        The story of men protected by sleeping in a cave is taken from a Jewish legend, according to Muhammad Asad, though was understood by the earliest Islamic scholars as a Christian legend.
        “As already mentioned, the majority of the classical commentators rely on this Christian legend in their endeavour to interpret the Qur’anic reference (in verses 9-26)[Qur’an 18:9-26] to the Men of the Cave. It seems, however, that the Christian formulation of this theme is a later development of a much older oral tradition -a tradition which, in fact, goes back to pre-Christian, Jewish sources. This is evident from several well-authenticated ahddrth (mentioned by all the classical commentators), according to which it was the Jewish rabbis (ahbdr) of Medina who induced the Meccan opponents of Muhammad to “test his veracity” by asking him to explain, among other problems, the story of the Men of the Cave. Referring to these ahddrth, Ibn Kathir remarks in his commentary on verse 13 of this surah: “It has been said that they were followers of Jesus the son of Mary, but God knows it better: it is obvious that they lived much earlier than the Christian period-for, had they been Christians, why should the Jewish rabbis have been intent on preserving their story . . . ? [20] ”

        MARY’S CARE

        Several elements of Mary’s story in the Qur’an, her miraculous food and finding a husband, are absent in the Bible but present in the Gospel of James.

        GOD CARES FOR MARY

        Quran

        “Every time that he entered (Her) chamber to see her, He found her supplied with sustenance. He said: “O Mary! Whence (comes) this to you?” She said: “From Allah: for Allah Provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure.”[Qur’an 3:37] ”

        GOSPEL OF JAMES

        “And Mary was in the Temple nurtured like a dove and received food from the hand of an angel. [21] ”

        CASTING LOTS TO CARE FOR MARY

        Quran

        “ they cast lots with arrows, as to which of them should be charged with the care of Mary. [Qur’an 3:44] ”

        Gospel of James

        “ [L]et every one of them bring his rod, and he by whom the Lord will show a sign will be the husband of Mary.[22] ”

        MARY RECEIVES MIRACLES FROM BABY JESUS

        The Gospel of Pseudo-Matthew describes Mary sitting below a palm tree with Jesus, Jesus talking to Mary when he is a baby and baby Jesus performing miracles to nourish Mary with dates from a palm tree and a stream of water.

        QURAN SURA 19

        “So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place. And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree: She cried (in her anguish): “Ah! would that I had died before this! would that I had been a thing forgotten and out of sight!” But (a voice) cried to her from beneath the (palm-tree): “Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a rivulet beneath thee; “And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree: It will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee. [Qur’an 19:22] ”

        GOSPEL OF PSEUDO-MATTHEW CHAPTER 20

        “And it came to pass on the third day of their journey, while they were walking, that the blessed Mary was fatigued by the excessive heat of the sun in the desert; and seeing a palm tree, she said to Joseph: Let me rest a little under the shade of this tree. Joseph therefore made haste, and led her to the palm, and made her come down from her beast. And as the blessed Mary was sitting there, she looked up to the foliage of the palm, and saw it full of fruit, and said to Joseph: I wish it were possible to get some of the fruit of this palm. And Joseph said to her: I wonder that thou sayest this, when thou seest how high the palm tree is; and that thou thinkest of eating of its fruit. I am thinking more of the want of water, because the skins are now empty, and we have none wherewith to refresh ourselves and our cattle. Then the child Jesus, with a joyful countenance, reposing in the bosom of His mother, said to the palm: O tree, bend thy branches, and refresh my mother with thy fruit. And immediately at these words the palm bent its top down to the very feet of the blessed Mary; and they gathered from it fruit, with which they were all refreshed. And after they had gathered all its fruit, it remained bent down, waiting the order to rise from Him who bad commanded it to stoop. Then Jesus said to it: Raise thyself, O palm tree, and be strong, and be the companion of my trees, which are in the paradise of my Father; and open from thy roots a vein of water which has been hid in the earth, and let the waters flow, so that we may be satisfied from thee. And it rose up immediately, and at its root there began to come forth a spring of water exceedingly clear and cool and sparkling. And when they saw the spring of water, they rejoiced with great joy, and were satisfied, themselves and all their cattle and their beasts. Wherefore they gave thanks to God. [23] ”

        JESUS CREATES BIRDS

        In the Qur’an, Jesus forms birds out of clay,

        QURAN

        “ I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird [Qur’an []] ”

        This parallels an episode in the apocryphal Infancy Gospel of Thomas where he does the same:[24]

        INFANCY GOSPEL OF THOMAS

        “[Jesus] then made soft clay and shaped it into twelve sparrows.[25] ”

        The Infancy Gospel of Thomas was written, at the earliest, in the second century or, at the latest, in the sixth century.

        JESUS SPEAKS IN THE CRADLE

        The Injilu ‘t Tufuliyyah or the Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ, contains an Arabic translation of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas and additional narratives. This contains a narrative of Jesus speaking while an infant, also contained in the Qur’an.

        QURAN

        “ But she pointed to the babe. They said: “How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?” He [Jesus] said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet; And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live; (He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable; [Qur’an 19:29] ”

        INFANCY OF GOSPEL OF THOMAS

        “Jesus spake when he was in the cradle, and called out to his mother Mary:— “Verily I am Jesus, the Son of God, the Word, whom thou hast given birth to according to the good tidings given thee by the Angel Gabriel, and my Father hath sent me for the Salvation of the World.” ”

        • Lucky bin Historian, …now we are somewhere…at least at some place where we can ponder. You see, before the Quran came some of the people of the Book had divulged from the original teachings. The Quran came to converge them back and in so doing its objective became to Unify the belief in ONE God, as per both the Bibles before the expunging of other Books such as James, Barnabas, …

          Thus Muslims are told to believe also in the Torah, Zabur and Injil together which exhibit the same message as that of the Quran.
          Only Saul bin Paul popped-up from nowhere and suddenly every thing was about Paul, Paul and more and more Paul who brought about the fake Salvation theory, very different from what the unknown author of Matthew alleged that Jesus taught. This dude did NOT even read Matthews! Refer to Acts 5:30 for that.
          This LIAR-Saul …used the unknown friends like Luke, John and Mark to forge his tells and thus the original message of Matthews about “Jesus” was forgotten. Paul is NOT mentioned in the Quran nor did the Jews ever accept this liar, who with his letters strengthened the Greek Church…but the same Church eventually beheaded this Liar!

          That is why there is the fundamental sin of Shirk meaning NO other god/s should be worshipped in the Quran.

          For those who believe in the Quran they are called believers and they follow it practically. In doing so…. so much evil like Nudity, prostitution, adultery, Random, Superstition, Idolatary, divorces, drugs, gay relations, murder, all the bad vices, like child molestations in the churches, sleeping with worshippers… are removed and instead they become more virtues, pious, God loving people. When the Quran does all that good
          to masses then would you find faults with it and make them join the filthy, filthy world??

          All the believers believe in every word of the Quran and for that matter of how it is preserved or how it was written is their faith to tell them. Whatever the Vedas, Sutras, Avesta, Bible, Guru Granth Sahib say,.. their followers believe in EACH and EVERY word! If I do not follow Hinduism…a misnomer, then who am I to doubt their belief?
          That is why the Quran says : “to you your religion, to me my religion”.

          If the Christian world had kept their morals according to their scriptures the carpet underneath their feet would NOT have disappeared. Today, Christianity is a mere cult that has become a TarPaulin affair, with more and more scandals coming eventually to the fore!

          Just BE GOOD, DO GOOD if you have nothing else to follow…!!!!

      Senior Saudi Cleric Saleh Al-Fawzan: The Sun Revolves around the Earth

      In a recent interview, Saleh Al-Fawzan, a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars, said that there is no doubt that the sun revolves around the earth. The interview aired on Saudi Channel 1 and was posted on the Internet on January 23, 2014. Following are excerpts:

      TV host: Allah says in a Koranic verse: “And the sun runs towards its stopping point. That is the determination of the All-Powerful, the All-Knowing.” Does the sun revolve around the earth?

      Saleh Al-Fawzan: There is no doubt about it. The Koran says: “The sun runs…” Nevertheless, they say that the sun stands in place and the Earth moves. This contradicts the Koran.

      […]

      Ignoring the Koran and adopting modern theories is not something a Muslim can do. A Muslim must follow the Koran.

          Changing The Times: Islamic Waqf Now Claims King Solomon Was A Muslim, Temple Mount Has No Jewish Connection
          01/22/2014

          Daniel 7:25a, “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law …”

          It is worth repeating that when the Prophet Daniel wrote that Antichrist would intend to “change” or “make alterations” to times and law, it is quite clear that the “law” was a direct reference to the desired implementation and subjugation of Sharia Law upon all non-Muslims, regardless of where they lived. But it is becoming increasingly evident that seeking to make changes to the “times” was likely a direct reference to something we’re witnessing this very day both inside and outside the Muslim world: the rewriting of history …
          By Maayana Miskin, INN –

          “The Islamic Waqf, which supervises the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, has issued a pamphlet that makes new claims regarding the Mount – arguing, among other things, that King Solomon was a Muslim and that there is no Jewish connection to either the Temple Mount or the Western Wall (Kotel).

          Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute supplied Arutz Sheva with a copy of the pamphlet, which is currently being distributed to visitors to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Temple Mount.

          In one section, titled, ‘Al-Buraq Wall and NOT the Wailing Wall,’ the pamphlet teaches, ‘Al-Buraq wall is part of the western wall of the Al-Aqsa mosque.’ The pamphlet goes on to link the wall to Islam, stating that it is known as the site where Mohammed ‘tied his winged steed, Al-Buraq.’ (According to Islamic legend Muhammed did not die but flew to heaven on a winged horse called Al-Buraq.)

          ‘Jews and some Christians, while falsely claiming it is part of their so-called ‘Temple,’ have made a ritual of standing in front of it, and wailing over the power they say was lost to Muslims. Despite the lack of a shred of proof to support these claims, they have turned it into a Jewish shrine since occupation in 1967, and have been conducting so-called archaeological excavations beneath it… in preparation for laying hands over the whole Mosque,’ the pamphlet continues.

          The Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site, and is widely recognized as the former site of the biblical Temple. The Mount is also the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

          The ‘informative’ pamphlet is full of ‘utterly ludicrous, Kafkaesque lies,’ Richman said. He noted that guidebooks to the holy site published by the Waqf in 1925, and again in 1950, recognized the site’s Jewish history, including the existence of the Temple built by King Solomon…

          The updated pamphlet denies historical evidence that the Biblical King Solomon ever built a Jewish Temple, offering the following argument as proof: ‘Solomon was just another prophet of Islam, and therefore, he could not have the authority to build a structure for the worship of any other god but Allah.’
          In a section titled ‘Marwani Prayer hall and NOT Solomon’s Stables’ the claim that King Solomon was Muslim was reiterated.

          ‘Solomon – peace be upon him – was one of the prophets of Islam,’ stated the pamphlet, which accused ‘Jews and crusaders’ of referring to an underground chamber near the Temple Mount as ‘Solomon’s stables’ in a deliberate attempt ‘to try to lead people into believing that the structure is part of the so-called ‘temple.’’

          Previous Waqf pamphlets, however, referred to Solomon’s Stables as ‘Solomon’s Stables.’” Read more.

          By Joel Leyden – “Jerusalem — February 10, 2012 ….

          One need not trek thousands of miles to view the ancient Dead Sea Scrolls in Jerusalem.
          Smack in the middle of Times Square and Broadway in New York City, the Discovery Museum has been displaying this ancient, Hebrew literature since last October.

          The ancient, 2,000 year-old Hebrew scrolls were accidentally discovered in 1947 by a Bedouin boy high above the Israel Dead Sea in a number of caves. The Dead Sea Scrolls reveal the history of the Jewish Second Temple period (520 B.C.E.-70 C.E.), particularly from the second century B.C.E. until the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E. – a time of crucial developments in the crystallization of the monotheistic religions.

          The Dead Sea Scrolls are a vivid testament to the life, times, community and legal heritage of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.

          In a world filled with blatant propaganda and lies by the Palestinian Authority (PA), Iran, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, it is refreshing to view upon these well preserved documents that speak of community and values by Jews who lived in biblical Israel.

          These Jewish documents contain numerous copies of books from the Hebrew Bible, written in Hebrew, not Arabic!
          How can Arabs or the UN declare that Israel, the West Bank or Gaza is occupied land when these documents were written over 600 years before the prophet Muhammad, before there was anything called Islam or Palestine?

          These Jewish documents contain numerous copies of books from the Hebrew Bible, written in Hebrew, not Arabic!”

          AISHA OWNED THE FIRST WINGED HORSE

          Abu Daawood and An-Nasaa’ee have narrated with another chain (wajh aakhar) from ‘Aa’isha that she said:” The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) returned from the battle of Tabook or Khaibar…”.

          Then the side of the curtain which was over the dolls of ‘Aa’isha was uncovered. He said: What is this, O ‘Aa’isha? She said: My dolls. She then said: then he saw amongst them a winged horse which was tied up. He said: What is this? I said: A horse. He said: A horse with two wings? I said: Didn’t you hear that Sulaiman (Solomon) had horses with wings? Then he laughed”

          MUHAMMAD’S NIGHT JOURNEY

          No Muslim can deny the importance of Mohammed’s night journey in Islam, because this trip determined the Islamic rituals of praying five times a day, and performing ablution – or washing before prayer. In other words Mohammed’s night journey should impact the lives of 1.5 billion Muslims all over the world – five times – each and every day.

          Qur’an, sura 17.1

          “Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things)”.

          Mohammed’s alleged overnight trip covered the 1,000 miles from Mecca to Jerusalem, a trip to heaven, and a return to Mecca by morning, and is described in part as follows:

          Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0309:
          It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I was brought al-Buraq Who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of vision. I mounted it and came to the Temple (Bait Maqdis in Jerusalem), then tethered it to the ring used by the prophets. I entered the mosque and prayed two rak’ahs in it, and then came out and Gabriel brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk.

          So Mohammed flew on al-Buraq to the temple in Jerusalem, tied it up to a ring “the prophets” had used in the past, and went on in to the Temple to pray. Because of the fantastic nature of Mohammed’s claims, some 21st century Muslims try to suggest that this was a vision or dream, but according to perhaps the most highly regarded historian of Islam:

          Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 228:
          Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
          The sights which Allah’s Apostle was shown on the Night Journey when he was taken to Bait-ul-Maqdis (i.e. Jerusalem) were actual sights, (not dreams). And the Cursed Tree (mentioned) in the Quran is the tree of Zaqqum (itself).

          Additionally, the rock enshrined in the Dome of the Rock on the temple mount, is supposed to be where Mohammed and Baraq launched from, for the leg of the trip to heaven. So it would be untenable to suggest that Mohammed’s journey was a dream or vision, while at the same time claiming that he launched from a very much physical and tangible rock, on the temple mount.

          Doubtless there were many skeptics when Mohammed recounted the details of his trip the morning after his night journey on the flying animal. As Dr. Rafat Amari points out in the introduction to “Islam: In Light of History”, Abu Bakar (the first assistant of Mohammed who became his first Caliph) confirmed Mohammed’s descriptions of the temple he had visited, because Abu Baker claimed he had once taken a journey to Jerusalem and had seen the temple himself, and remembered it to be just as Mohammed had described it.

          There is, however, a little difficulty with their accounts. The temple had been torn down over 500 years before their claims of personal visits to it. Indeed if Mohammed had actually hitched his flying animal anywhere near where the temple had been, as he claimed “the prophets” had hitched theirs, at the time in history that his night flight is supposed to have occurred, he would have found that the temple mount was being used as a garbage dump. The Muslim’s own Caliph Omar would have observed this when he marched into Jerusalem in 639 AD, not very many years after Mohammed offered his account detailed above.

          While Mohammed and Bakr didn’t need to be concerned about their largely illiterate followers traveling the 1,000 miles from Mecca to Jerusalem, to scrutinize their accounts, what excuse do today’s Muslims have in this 21st century information age?

          “In light of all this, we ask the following questions:

          * What Temple did Muhammad visit, enter and pray at before ascending to heaven?
          * Seeing that the Quran mentions a journey to a Mosque that did not exist during the lifetime of Muhammad, how can you consider the Quran to be 100% the word of God?
          * In light of the fact that both the Quran and the Islamic traditions contain this historical error, how can you trust either source to provide you with reliable information on the life of Muhammad and the first Muslims?
          * Does not the fact that the Quran mentions a Mosque which was only erected in AD 691 prove that there were Muslims who unashamedly and deceitfully added stories to the Quranic text and passed them off as revelation from God?
          * If you cannot find an answer to this historical problem within the Quran, why do you still remain a Muslim?”

          FLYING ANIMALS

          Flying camels, or baraqs, were nothing new to Islamic tradition. It was how they explained away the transportation impossibilities that resulted from the fictional history the Islamic “historians” had created.

          For example it was one of these mythical flying camels that enabled Abraham to pay visits to his son Ishmael in Mecca, a 1000 miles away. Islamic tradition also holds that it was a Baraq that enabled Ishmael to attend his father Abraham’s funeral in Hebron. Are we beginning to get the picture? Any time the thousand miles between Mecca and Israel presented the obvious geographical impossibility, of any suggestion of Abraham or Ishmael ever having been in Mecca, simply break out the flying camel! Hmmm

          But then the flying camel wasn’t invented by Muslim historians but had been in mythology from long before. It was utilized in Persian Zoroastrian mythology.

          Quoting Dr. Amari

          “The Pahlavi Texts of the book of Dinkard are Zoroastrian canonical comments on the Avesta, considered part of the Zoroastrian scriptures. It mentioned KaiKhusrois, a mythological prophet who transformed Vae, the god of the air, into the shape of a camel. He then mounted him and went where the immortal mythological Persians dwelt.”

          Indeed, when combined with the “Mecca” page, what we learn is that every Muslim on earth, bows toward and is supposed to travel to and circumambulate, the very same black stone moon god idol, that the pagans bowed toward and circumambulated before Mohammed. Now we learn that the reason that Muslims bow toward that black stone idol five times a day, and wash before doing so, is because Mohammed claimed to have taken a trip on a flying animal. Beyond the obvious questions about flying animals, that even an 8 year old might ask, Mohammed’s visit to and prayer in a temple, is also shown to be a physical impossibility. Some suggest it was a reference to the mosque that was built on the temple mount, but no “prophets” ever tied camels up to that mosque, let alone that it wasn’t built until 685 AD, long after Mohammed was dead and buried.

          The real reason Muslims pray five times a day and perform ablution, is likely because Mohammed became deeply involved in the second century occult cult of the Sabians, by way of four of his relatives. This cult apparently had so much influence over Mohammed’s daily life, that some in his own tribe referred to him as “the Sabian”. In the Quran Mohammed lists Sabians right alongside Christians and Jews.

          Qur’an, surah 2:62

          “Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day…”

          Qur’an, surah 5:69

          “Those who believe (in the Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the sabians and the Christians…”

          And guess what?

          The occult Sabian cult prayed five times a day and performed ablution.

          Excerpt from “Occultism in the family of Mohammed”

          “Waraqa was one of the founders of the group called Ahnaf. In the first narration of the life of Mohammed, written by Ibn Hisham in the 8th century A.D., we read:

          The Honafa’, or Ahnaf, was a small group started when four Sabians at Mecca agreed. Those four were Zayd bin Amru bin Nafil, Waraqa bin Naufal, Ubaydullah bin Jahsh, and Uthman Bin al-Huwayrith.[xxxi][31]

          The four founders of Ahnaf were all related to Mohammed. They were descendants of Loayy, one of Mohammed’s ancestors. Furthermore, Waraqa bin Naufal and Uthman Bin al-Huwayrith were cousins of Khadijah. We know this from Mohammed’s genealogy presented by Ibn Hisham.[xxxii][32] Ubaydullah Bin Jahsh was a maternal cousin to Mohammed. Mohammed married his widow, Um Habibeh. All this reveals the close connection between Mohammed and the founders of the group.”

          Before fundamental, Quran and Hadith following – true Muslims – received Western financing through oil purchase to expand their murder of innocent non-Muslims all around the world – with 2 million killed in the Sudan alone by the Islamic beast during this Islamic Second Jihad – the only thing I would have likely recalled knowing about Arabia would have been what I learned as a child. This would include stories like Aladdin’s lamp from which a genie emerged when it was rubbed, and Ali Baba and his magic flying carpet. Interesting now in adulthood to learn about Mohammed’s night flight that 1.5 billion people are not only expected to believe, but also to follow, five times a day.

          Funny how Muhammad could remember the entire Quran but he couldn’t remember what Jesusalem was like after he had supposedly been there. Look how vexed he was when actually questioned about Jerusalem. How is it that he could remember exactly everything that all the prophets he met in heaven said to him but couldn’t for the life of him remember anything about Jerusalem.
          “Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, reported:

          Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I found myself in Hijr and the Quraish were asking me about my Night Journey. I was asked about things pertaining to Bait Al-Maqdis which I could not preserve (in my mind). I was very much vexed, so vexed as I had never been before. Then Allah raised it (Bait Al-Maqdis) before my eyes. I looked towards it, and I gave them the information about whatever they questioned me…

          Hadith numeration in Sahih Muslim [Arabic only]: 251”

          http://www.muslimtents.com/baytalmaqdis … aqdis.html

          So why didn’t Allah just make the pages of the Quran appear in front of him instead of making Gabriel teach them to him, taking 20 damn years? Even if he couldn’t read what he saw he could copy it. Anybody can copy what they see. Besides, what did Gabriel do to deserve such a punishment as having to spend 20 years of his valuable time trying to teach an idiot a whole book when he couldn’t even manage to learn reading and writing, which I’m assuming is a lot easier than learning an entire book by memory? It would have made more sense for Gabriel to simply teach Muhammad how to read and write and then showing him the scroll and saying “read”.
          It would have taken only a month or two.

          THE NATURE OF MUHAMMAD’S PROPHETIC EXPERIENCE
          AL-MI’RAJ: THE ALLEGED ASCENT TO HEAVEN.
          1. The Story of the Mi’raj in the Hadith.
          One of the most famous Islamic monuments in the world is the Dome of the Rock which stands on the site of the original Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. It is the third-holiest in the Muslim world after the Ka’aba in Mecca and Prophet’s Mosque in Medina and commemorates the alleged occasion of Muhammad’s ascent through the seven heavens to the very presence of Allah. It stands above the rock from which Muhammad is believed to have ascended to heaven. The narrative of this ascent is recorded in all the major works of Hadith in some detail, but there is only one verse in the Qur’an openly refer ring to the incident and in a limited context at that.
          The traditions basically report that Muhammad was asleep one night towards the end of his prophetic course in Mecca when he was wakened by the angel Gabriel who cleansed his heart before bidding him alight on a strange angelic beast named Buraq. Muhammad is alleged to have said:
          I was brought al-Burg who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof at a distance equal to the range of vision. I mounted it and came to the Temple (Bait-ul Maqdis in Jerusalem), then tethered it to the ring used by the prophets. (Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, p. 101).
          Some traditions hold that the creature had a horse’s body and angel’s head and that it also had a peacock’s tail. It is thus represented in most Islamic paintings of the event. The journey from Mecca to Jerusalem is known as al-Isra, “the night journey”. At Jerusalem Muhammad was tested in the following way by Gabriel (some traditions place this test during the ascent itself):
          Allah’s Apostle was presented with two cups, one containing wine and the other milk on the night of his night journey at Jerusalem. He looked at it and took the milk. Gabriel said, “Thanks to Allah Who guided you to the Fitra (i.e. Islam); if you had taken the wine, your followers would have gone astray”. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 6, p. 196).
          After this began al-Mi’raj, “the ascent”. Muhammad passed the sea of kawthar, literally the sea of “abundance” (the word is found only once in the Qur’an in Surah 108.1), and then met various prophets, from Adam to Abraham, as well as a variety of angels as he passed through the seven heavens. After this Gabriel took him to the heavenly lote-tree on the boundary of the heavens before the throne of Allah.
          Then I was made to ascend to Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (i.e. the lote-tree of the utmost boundary). Behold! Its fruits were like the jars of Hajr (i.e. a place near Medina) and its leaves were as big as the ears of elephants. Gabriel said, “This is the lote-tree of the utmost boundary”. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 5, p. 147).
          This famous tree, as-sidratul-muntaha, is also mentioned twice in the passage in Surah 53 describing the second vision Muhammad had of Gabriel (Surah 53.14,16) where he also saw the angel ‘inda sidrah, “near the lote-tree”. Gabriel and Buraq could go no further but Muhammad went on to the presence of Allah where he was commanded to order the Muslims to pray fifty times a day:
          Then Allah enjoined fifty prayers on my followers. When I returned with this order of Allah, I passed by Moses who asked me, “What has Allah enjoined on your followers?” I replied, “He has enjoined fifty prayers on them”. Moses said “Go back to your Lord (and appeal for reduction) for your followers will not be able to bear it”. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 1, p. 213).
          Muhammad allegedly went back and forth between Allah and Moses till the prayers were reduced to five per day. Moses then told him to seek yet a further reduction but Muhammad stopped at this point and answered Moses:
          I replied that I had been back to my Lord and asked him to reduce the number until I was ashamed, and I would not do it again. (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasulullah, p. 187).
          Allah then said whoever observed the five times of prayer daily would receive the reward of fifty prayers. Muhammad then saw some of the delights of paradise as he returned to Gabriel and Buraq and then beheld the torments of the damned before going back to his bed in Mecca that same night. This, briefly, is the narrative of the ascent.
          2. The Night Journey in the Qur’an.
          As said already, the Qur’an has only one direct reference to this whole episode and it is found in this verse:
          Glory to (God) Who did take His Servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque whose precincts We did bless, – in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things). Surah 17.1
          The “Sacred Mosque” (al-masjidul-haram) is interpreted to be the Ka’aba at Mecca and the “Farthest Mosque” (al-masjidul- aqsa) the Temple at Jerusalem (also referred to as al-baitul- muqaddas – the “holy house”). The great mosque which presently stands next to the Dome of the Rock is accordingly known today as the “al-Aqsa” mosque.
          The verse is somewhat vague as it refers only to “signs” that Allah would show him. What is important, however, is the fact that the verse refers purely to the “journey by night” (asra), from Mecca to Jerusalem, and makes no mention of the ascent through the heavens (mi’raj) at all. Indeed the Qur’an nowhere directly refers to nor outlines the supposed ascent – a striking omission if it was a genuine experience. Some Muslim commentators have sought allusions to it elsewhere in the Qur’an but the passages quoted are too weak to be relied on with any certainty.
          Those who know how large a part the Miraj, or miraculous journey on the Borak, bears in popular conceptions of Mohammedanism will learn with surprise, if they have not gone much into the matter, that there is only one passage in the Koran which can be tortured into an allusion to the journey to heaven. (Bosworth Smith, Mohammed and Mohammedanism, p. 186).
          There are some who say that the vision referred to in Surah 53.6-18 (see page 100) refers to the Mi’raj, but we have already seen that Muhammad recited this very Surah at the time of the first emigration to Abyssinia, and the passage must therefore refer to one of the very early visions as the Mi’raj is only said to have taken place some years later just before the Hijrah. Another hadith supports this conclusion by identifying this passage more clearly:
          Masruq reported: I said to Aisha: What about the words of Allah: Then he drew nigh and came down, so he was at a distance of two bows or closer still . . . (53.8-10)? She said: It implies Gabriel. He used to come to him in the shape of men; but he came at this time in his true form and blocked up the horizon of the sky. (Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, p. 112).
          The occasion Ayishah records is plainly identified as one of those where Muhammad had a vision of the approaching angel in the sky rather than a manifestation of the angel during their ascent through the heavens. If the verse had referred to the Mi’raj, Ayishah would have surely mentioned the fact, but it patently refers to an independent occasion.
          Furthermore the narratives in the Hadith expose a glaring anachronism. After proclaiming that he had been to Jerusalem Muhammad was allegedly asked to describe the Temple. He is said to have replied:
          I stood at al-Hijr, visualised Bayt al-Muqaddas and described its signs. Some of them said: How many doors are there in that mosque? I had not counted them so I began to look at it and counted them one by one and gave them information concerning them. (Ibn Sa’d, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Vol. 1, p. 248).
          Another tradition states that when the Qurayah disbelieved him, Muhammad answered “Allah lifted me before Bait-ul-Maqdis and I began to narrate to them (the Quraish of Mecca) its signs while I was in fact looking at it” (Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, p. 109). There is a real problem here for the structure had been destroyed more than five hundred years earlier and the site at that time had become a rubbish-dump and was so discovered by Umar when he conquered Jerusalem some years later. It cannot be said that Muhammad saw a vision of the Temple as it had been before it was destroyed for the Quraysh were asking him to describe contemporary Jerusalem as he saw it that very night. How could he have counted the doors of a building that no longer existed?
          The whole story of the Mi’raj as found in the Hadith may well be a pure fiction, a conclusion that will be reinforced through a study of its sources shortly. Here let it be said that it is not at all certain that Muhammad ever claimed that he actually ascended to heaven. It is possible that he merely related a striking dream, which he took as a vision, in which he imagined his journey to Jerusalem. Al-Hasan reported:
          One of Abu Bakr’s family told me that Aisha, the Prophet’s wife, used to say: “The apostle’s body remained where it was but God removed his spirit by night”. (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasulullah, p. 183).
          These words clearly teach that Muhammad never left his apartment the whole night. Furthermore the Qur’an plainly restricts the journey to the Isra as we have seen. It is probable that what was originally nothing more than a dream of a journey to Jerusalem has been transformed into an actual physical event which was followed by an ascent through the heavens to the throne of Allah himself.
          The suggestion that even the Isra was only a dream is strengthened by the fact that the anachronism appearing in the Hadith is also found in the Qur’an for the latter also states that Muhammad was taken to the Temple in Jerusalem in Surah 17.1 quoted above. Although the Qur’an does not refer to the baitul-muqaddas but only to the masjidul-aqsa, it is clear that the same shrine is intended as the Qur’an in the same way describes the baitullah, the Ka’aba in Mecca, as the masjidul-haram. Furthermore the context establishes this interpretation for, only a few verses later, the Qur’an actually records the destruction of the second Temple in Jerusalem and here simply describes it as al-masjid (Surah 17.7 – the word today is only used of a Muslim mosque but in the Qur’an it is commonly used for any holy sanctuary).
          Although Muhammad obviously knew of the destruction of the second Temple, it seems he believed that it had been rebuilt like the first one. The fact that he first chose Jerusalem as his qiblah before turning to the masjidul-haram in Mecca adds considerable weight to this suggestion for he would hardly have chosen the former if he had known that no masjidul-aqsa stood on the site at that time, where the mosque of this name now stands, but only a compost heap.
          It seems appropriate to conclude that the experience Muhammad had was really only a dream which characterised his illusions about Jerusalem, and that the whole story of the Mi’raj is accordingly nothing more than a mythical fantasy imaginatively built upon it.
          3. A Literal Event or a Mystical Experience?
          Orthodox Muslims hold that the Mi’raj was a literal, bodily ascent to heaven, but others have suggested that it was purely a mystical experience. The distinction goes back to the early days of Islam and is summarised in the following quote:
          The belief in the Ascension of the Prophet is general in Islam. Whilst the Asha’ri and the patristic sects believe that the Prophet was bodily carried up from earth to heaven, the Rationalists hold that it was a spiritual exaltation, that it represented the uplifting of the soul by stages until it was brought into absolute communion with the Universal Soul. (Ali, The Spirit of Islam, p. 447).
          To this day those who believe that Muhammad actually went up to heaven and back remain overwhelmingly in the majority and the event is commemorated once a year during the lailatul-mi’raj, “the night of the ascension”, which falls on the 27th night of the Islamic month of Rajab. In more recent times, however, prominent Muslim authors have rejected the possibility of a physical ascent and have offered an assortment of alternative spiritual interpretations.
          Now, it is agreed by all that Muhammad’s Ascension was a matter of seconds or minutes instead of being days, months or years, and the words used for it by all biographers is Miraj, the same as used by God for the ascension of the angels or spirits who have no bodies . . . The Miraj is nothing but Inspiration or Revelation raised in degrees. (Sarwar, Muhammad: the Holy Prophet, pp. 119, 122).
          Since “faith” is an abstract concept, it is obvious that the Prophet himself regarded this prelude to the Ascension (the cleansing of his heart) – and therefore the Ascension itself and, ipso facto, the Night Journey to Jerusalem – as purely spiritual experiences. But whereas there is no cogent reason to believe in a “bodily” Night Journey and Ascension, there is, on the other hand, no reason to doubt the objective reality of this event. (Asad, The Message of the Qur’an, p. 997).
          Haykal has a novel view – he alleges that the discoveries of modern science, e.g. the reproduction of images on television and voices on radios, etc., proves that forces of nature can be transferred from one place to another, and so concludes:
          “In our modern age, science confirms the possibility of a spiritual Isra’ and Mi’raj . . . Strong and powerful spirits such as Muhammad’s are perfectly capable of being carried in one night from Makkah to Jerusalem and of being shown God’s signs” (The Life of Muhammad, p. 146).
          Quite what is meant by the latter statement, only the author can know. Nevertheless his interpretation is typical of modern attempts to cast the ascension into a mystical mould, reminiscent of the rationalistic interpretations of the “free-thinking” age of early Islam when similar attempts to explain the Mi’raj in rationalistic terms were made.
          In fact Haykal returns to the standpoint of the Mu’tazila, who also rejected the realistic understanding and denied that the ascent into heaven had occurred in the body. (Weasels, A Modern Arabic Biography of Muhammad, p. 84).
          The fanciful nature of the traditional story of the Mi’raj has made more educated Muslims realise that the orthodox interpretation is perhaps more consistent with the marvellous tales of the Arabian Nights than the world of reality. Even the early biographer Ibn Ishaq had his doubts about the narrative. In his introduction to the Sirat Rasulullah, Guillaume states:
          “In his account of the night journey to Jerusalem and the ascent into heaven he allows us to see the working of his mind. The story is everywhere hedged with reservations and terms suggesting caution to the reader” (p. xix).
          A famous biographer perhaps gets to the heart of the matter by suggesting that, as Muhammad was already looking northwards towards Medina for the future of his ministry and had decided to adopt Jerusalem as the qiblah, the imaginations of his mind by day probably became the fantasies of a dream by night: “The musings of the day reappeared in the slumbers of the night” (Muir, The Life of Mahomet, p. 117).
          At this stage we are bound to ask on what authority it may be suggested that the story of the Mi’raj, as recorded in all its details in the traditions, was purely a mythical adaptation of a simple dream. Did later scribes put it all together as a pious figment of their fertile imaginations? Not at all. Another modern Muslim author gives us a clear indication as to why much of it is an acute problem to recent scholars.
          The doctrine of a locomotive mi’raj or ‘Ascension’ developed by the orthodox (chiefly on the pattern of the Ascension of Jesus) and backed by Hadith is no more than a historical fiction whose material comea from various aourcea. (Rahman, Islam, p. 14).
          Let us now, in closing, examine these sources on which early traditionists relied for their details of the story.
          4. The Sources of the Alleged Ascent.
          Stories strikingly similar to the Mi’raj are found in various religious works predating the time of Muhammad and it is virtually certain that later scribes borrowed elements from these to create the story found in the Hadith.
          In these later narratives of the Mi’raj we find mythology unrestrained by any regard for reason or truth. We must now inquire what was the source from which the idea of this night journey of Muhammad was derived. (Tisdall, The Original Sources of the Qur’an, p. 225).
          Stobart refers to Surah 17.1 as Muhammad’s “simple account of what was probably only a dream prompted by his waking thoughts” and relieves him of responsibility for the fanciful narratives found in the Hadith:
          For the details of this revelation, with all its later embellishment of curious and extravagant fiction, drawn from the legends of the Haggidah, and the dreams of the Midrash and the Talmud, the prophet cannot, in fairness, be made responsible. (Stobart, Islam and its Founder, p. 141).

          Stobart refers to Jewish works where accounts similar to that of the Mi’raj are found, but perhaps the real origins of the Islamic account of Muhammad’s ascent to heaven are those stories found in Zoroastrian works which are strikingly parallel to the Mi’raj. Tisdall states that “The story may have incorporated elements from many quarters, but it seems to have been in the main based upon the account of the ascension of Arta Viraf contained in a Pahlavi book called ‘The Book of Arta Viraf”‘ (The Original Sources of the Qur’an, p. 226), where we find remarkable coincidences. Arta Viraf was a saintly priest who had a mi’raj of his own some four hundred years before the Hijrah:

          It is related that; when this young Arta Viraf was in a trance, his spirit ascended into the heavens under the guidance of an archangel named Sarosh, and passed from one storey to another, gradually ascending until he reached the presence of Ormazd himself. When Arta Viraf had thus beheld everything in the heavens and seen the happy state of their inhabitants, Ormazd commanded him to return to the earth as His messenger and to tell the Zoroastrians what he had seen. All his visions are fully related in the book which bears his name. (Tisdall, The Original Sources of the Qur’an, p. 227).

          There are numerous details in the narrative which correspond to those in the Hadith. Just as Gabriel guided Muhammad through the heavens, so Sarosh, one of the great Zoroastrian archangels, guided Arta Viraf. Likewise he came into the presence of Ormazd and visited paradise and hell as well.
          It is unnecessary to point out how great is the resemblance between all this and the Muhammadan legend of Muhammad’s Mi’raj. (Tisdall, The Original Sources of the Qur’an, p. 229).

          The Zoroastrians also teach that there is, in paradise, a marvellous tree called humaya in Pahlavi which corresponds closely to the sidrah, the lote-tree of Islam. Indeed the Zoroastrians even relate that their founder also passed through the heavens and visited hell.

          In the fabulous Zerdashtnama there is also an account of Zoroaster having ages before ascended to the heavens, after having received permission to visit hell, where he found Ahriman (the devil). (Tisdall, The Sources of Islam, p. 80).

          In his other book St. Clair-Tisdall comments that Ahriman, the Satan of Zoroastrianism, “closely corresponds with the Iblis of the Qur’an” (The Original Sources of the Qur’an, p. 230). It certainly seems that the whole account of the Mi’raj is a subtle adaptation done by Muslim divines sometime after the subjugation of Zoroastrian Persia during the Arab conquests in the early days of Islam.
          We may conclude that tradition has nonchalantly adorned the story of Muhammad’s dream with marvellous records of an ascent through the heavens. It is highly probable that Muhammad himself declared no more than that which we find in the Qur’an – that he had a vision or a dream in which he was carried to Jerusalem and there saw various signs. The isra of the Qur’an has been transformed into the mi’raj of the Hadith. In a very subjective way the former may well have been a vision or, more probably, a strange dream, but the latter does truly seem to be no more than a pious fiction drawn from the fables of other religious records and works.

          AL ASRA (THE NIGHT JOURNEY)
          In the year 621 A.D., the eleventh year of the Prophet’s call, he experienced another spiritual event. The Prophet at the time was staying with his cousin, Hind, the daughter of his uncle Abu Talib. She was also known as Umm Hani.
          In a spiritual vision during the night, the Holy Prophet was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to the Prophet Solomon’s Temple at Jerusalem which was known to the Muslims as the Distant Mosque.
          This vision, although purely spiritual, was so vivid and realistic in its nature that the Holy Prophet could easily describe the city of Jerusalem and the Distant Mosque to the amazement of the disbelievers.

          • Lucky bin BuraQ, let us quote the verse you mentioned and you, the dumbie….then piled so much heaps of rubbish…MM told you to make your comments short…okay– the flying donkey??
            Quran : 17.1:

            “Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things)”.

            There is NO mention of Jerusalem in the above verse NOR of the Temple Mount and when did God Bless Jerusalem, rodomontade???

            Farthest mosque means an area of prayer beyond reach of any human. Do you get that
            STEATOPYGOUS???

            In the above verse is there mention of the name of “His servant”?? Is the flying donkey or a horse mentioned there??? It is Bukhari whom you love created the fable and gave cretns like you the carrot…to yahoooo against Islam over here!

            Suddenly you seem to be bankrupt!!

          • WE ALL KNOW ABOUT YOUR OPERATION & HOW THEY PUT A MONKEY BRAIN IN WHERE THERE WAS NONE BEFORE!

            BUT COME ON, EVEN A MONKEY KNOWS ALL ABOUT THE NIGHT JOURNEY!

            “The Islamic Waqf, which supervises the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, has issued a pamphlet that makes new claims regarding the Mount – arguing, among other things, that King Solomon was a Muslim and that there is no Jewish connection to either the Temple Mount or the Western Wall (Kotel).

            Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute supplied Arutz Sheva with a copy of the pamphlet, which is currently being distributed to visitors to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Temple Mount.

            In one section, titled, ‘Al-Buraq Wall and NOT the Wailing Wall,’ the pamphlet teaches,

            ‘Al-Buraq wall is part of the western wall of the Al-Aqsa mosque.’ The pamphlet goes on to link the wall to Islam, stating that it is known as the site where Mohammed ‘tied his winged steed, Al-Buraq.’ (According to Islamic legend Muhammed did not die but flew to heaven on a winged horse called Al-Buraq.)

            ‘Jews and some Christians, while falsely claiming it is part of their so-called ‘Temple,’ have made a ritual of standing in front of it, and wailing over the power they say was lost to Muslims. Despite the lack of a shred of proof to support these claims, they have turned it into a Jewish shrine since occupation in 1967, and have been conducting so-called archaeological excavations beneath it… in preparation for laying hands over the whole Mosque,’ the pamphlet continues.

            The Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site, and is widely recognized as the former site of the biblical Temple. The Mount is also the site of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

            The ‘informative’ pamphlet is full of ‘utterly ludicrous, Kafkaesque lies,’ Richman said. He noted that guidebooks to the holy site published by the Waqf in 1925, and again in 1950, recognized the site’s Jewish history, including the existence of the Temple built by King Solomon…

            The updated pamphlet denies historical evidence that the Biblical King Solomon ever built a Jewish Temple, offering the following argument as proof: ‘Solomon was just another prophet of Islam, and therefore, he could not have the authority to build a structure for the worship of any other god but Allah.’
            In a section titled ‘Marwani Prayer hall and NOT Solomon’s Stables’ the claim that King Solomon was Muslim was reiterated.

            ‘Solomon – peace be upon him – was one of the prophets of Islam,’ stated the pamphlet, which accused ‘Jews and crusaders’ of referring to an underground chamber near the Temple Mount as ‘Solomon’s stables’ in a deliberate attempt ‘to try to lead people into believing that the structure is part of the so-called ‘temple.’’

            Previous Waqf pamphlets, however, referred to Solomon’s Stables as ‘Solomon’s Stables.’”

          • Lucky bin idiot, why do you waste space and our time copy pasting the same long…longer….longest…material over and over, idiot? Didn’t the wise gentleman called MM refuse you to do the same? When will that go through your thick skull, pussyfart???

    • Lucky bin Daft, the word FIGHT = NOT EQUAL TO KILL = YOU = DAFT!

      The Quran is CLEAR that whoever becomes an ENEMY of ISLAM, an ENEMY of the MUSLIMS, who wishes THE BELIEVERS TO DIE should be fought against in EVERY manner.

      If you WISH death for OTHERS so shall YOU taste!
      That is what the Quran says LOUD and CLEAR…. an EYE FOR AN EYE, meaning when somebody begins hostilities then return it in the same manner. In simple words…DO NOT attack FIRST but RETALIATE only WHEN attacked.

      In short ISLAM says : DO NOT PROVOKE Islam OR you will be punished in the same kind.
      Quran 109:6 : Pickthall: “Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion”.

      Now, what is the problem with that, DAFTY?

      • YO SON OF A KENYAN MONKEY,

        REAL ISLAM & JIHAD

        The Truth about ISLAM: in its own words

        In the words of the prophet Muhammad.

        Bukhari:V4B52N220 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror. The treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.”

        Bukhari:V4B52N260 “The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.”

        Bukhari:V7B67N427 “The Prophet said, ‘If I take an oath and later find something else better than that, then I do what is better and expiate my oath.”

        EARLY HISTORY OF PEACEFUL ISLAM:

        Islamic leaders and politicians constantly tell us in English that “Islam is a peaceful religion”, but one can’t help wondering if they would say it quite so often if they were absolutely sure it was true.

        Some recorded massacres of Muslim history:

        On December 30, 1066, Joseph HaNagid, the Jewish vizier of Granada, Spain, was crucified by an Arab mob that proceeded to raze the Jewish quarter of the city and slaughtered its 5,000 inhabitants. The riot was apparently incited by Muslim preachers that had angrily objected to what they saw as inordinate Jewish political power. Similarly, in 1465, Arab mobs in Fez slaughtered thousands of Jews, leaving only 11 alive, after a Jewish deputy vizier treated a Muslim woman in “an offensive manner.” The killings touched off a wave of similar massacres throughout Morocco. Other mass murders of Jews in Arab lands occurred in Morocco in the 8th century, where whole communities were wiped out by Muslim ruler Idris I; North Africa in the 12th century, where the Almohads either forcibly converted or decimated several communities; Libya in 1785, where Ali Burzi Pasha murdered hundreds of Jews; Algiers, where Jews were massacred in 1805, 1815 and 1830 and Marrakesh, Morocco, where more than 300 hundred Jews were murdered between 1864 and 1880.

        Decrees ordering the destruction of synagogues were enacted in Egypt and Syria (1014, 1293-4, 1301-2), Iraq (854¬859, 1344) and Yemen (1676). Despite the Qur’an’s purported prohibition, Jews were forced to convert to Islam or face death in Yemen (1165 and 1678), Morocco (1275, 1465 and 1790-92) and Baghdad (1333 and 1344). Some escaped, but the Jews of Arabia who remained were pretty much completely wiped out. Islamic revisionists claim they were killed because they were literally asking for it, is their apologetic rubbish propaganda. These Islamic revisionists (Islamaniacs) claim that the Jews demanded it as per their own law. I mean that’s like the Nazis claiming they were only accommodating the Jews demand to get warm by the ovens. Like Goebbels said, the bigger the lie, the easier it is for others to believe it.

        In the violent, nearly 1,400-year relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims, Jihad and Dhimmitude were firmly established by the 8th century. Perhaps the pre-eminent Islamic scholar in history, Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406), summarized five centuries of prior Muslim jurisprudence with regard to the uniquely Islamic institution of jihad:

        In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the [Muslim] mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force… The other religious groups did not have a universal mission, and the holy war was not a religious duty for them, save only for purposes of defense… Islam is under obligation to gain power over other nations.

        Between 1894-96, the Ottoman Turks massacred over 200,000 (Dhimmi) Christian Armenians, followed by the first formal genocide of the 20th century, in 1915, at which time they slaughtered an additional 600,000 to 800,000 Armenians. Contemporary accounts from European diplomats confirm that these brutal massacres were perpetrated in the context of a formal Jihad against the Armenians who had attempted to throw off the yoke of Dhimmitude by seeking equal rights and autonomy. Regarding the 1894-96 massacres, the Turkish-speaking interpreter of the British embassy reported:

        …[The perpetrators] are guided in their general action by the prescriptions of the Sheri [Sharia] Law. That law prescribes that if the “rayah” [dhimmi] Christian attempts, by having recourse to foreign powers, to overstep the limits of privileges allowed them by their Mussulman [Muslim] masters, and free themselves from their bondage, their lives and property are to be forfeited, and are at the mercy of the Mussulmans. To the Turkish mind the Armenians had tried to overstep those limits by appealing to foreign powers, especially England. They therefore considered it their religious duty and a righteous thing to destroy and seize the lives and properties of the Armenians…”

        The scholar Bat Yeor confirms this reasoning, noting that the Armenian quest for reforms invalidated their “legal status,” which involved a “contract” (i.e., with their Muslim Turkish rulers).

        This …breach…restored to the umma [the Muslim community] its initial right to kill the subjugated minority [the dhimmis], [and] seize their property…

        In the following chronology, note how closely Islam’s inception is associated with war. From 623 to 777, a span of 154 years, there are 83 military conflicts involving the Muslims…. Muslims tell us Islam is a religion of peace, but all historical facts seem to discredit that claim rather convincingly.

        Undeniably, Christians have in the past also committed despicable acts in the name of God, and in recent history the Serbia conflicts and the Protestant-Catholic Northern-Ireland clashes stand out as examples. But there are three major differences and distinctions that can be drawn between those crimes and the acts committed in Islam’s name.

        The first difference is that the unfortunate events were limited in both time and scope, they had an end.
        The second distinction is that terrorists acting from Christian cultures always did their vile deeds in violation of scriptural teaching and the example of Christ, not in fulfilment of it, as in Islam.

        The third dissimilarity is that people from Christian cultures who perform terrorist acts against others are recognized as criminals, not worshiped as heroes. To expect Muslims to drop their belligerence toward the West, which has existed since Islam’s founding in the 7th century, is to expect them to jettison core values of their faith — something for which there is no precedent in Islamic history. Although nowadays nothing seems less tolerated than pessimism, yet in relation to Islam this attitude is in fact simply just realism.
        Most Americans have a benignly positive attitude toward religion, but is our civic piety, allied with political correctness, blinding us and keeping us from asking reasonable questions about Islam, questions upon which the survival of our civilization may depend. Do Western cultures, obsessed with tolerance, render us incapable of drawing reasonable conclusions about Islam’s core values and designs? The general reluctance to criticize any non-Christian religion and the almost universal public ignorance about Islam make for a dangerous potentially lethal mix.

        Unlike Constitutional provisions in the US, there is no cultural or scriptural mandate for separation of church and state in Islam, making secular democracy an alien and hostile concept. Women have few rights over and against their husbands, who may legally beat their wives and concubines. Enslaving infidels and raping infidel women are justified under Qura’nic law (and still occur in some Muslim lands). Grotesque punishments for crimes — beheadings and the like — are not medieval holdovers; on the contrary, they will forever be part of authentic Islam as long as the Qur’an is revered as the perfect Words of Allah.
        While Muslims in the West live in peace, prosperity and religious liberty, Christians and other “Infidels” in Muslim lands have been, are now, and will continue to be persecuted, sometimes unto death. Turkey is the only Muslim country that could be called democratic, and that’s probably a stretch. The example of Turkey is laudable, but sadly it shows that secularist values can only be imposed on Islamic societies by force, and will therefore remain tenuous. Because Islam demands death for heretics, moderate Muslims will always risk their lives if they offer more liberal interpretations of their faith.

        The problem is that for all its schisms, sects, and multiplicity of voices, Islam’s violent elements are firmly rooted in its central texts; as such, Islam cannot be other than a religion of violence. It would be too pessimistic to say that there are no peaceful strains of Islam, but it would be imprudent to ignore the fact that deeply imbedded in the central documents of the religion is an all-encompassing vision of a theocratic state that is intractable and fundamentally different from (and opposed toward) democratic values and Western governments based on them.

        THE QURAN’S VIEW OF JEWS & CHRISTIANS:

        A basic principle of Islamism holds that humanity is divided according to a strict hierarchy of worth. At the top of this hierarchy are free Muslim males, the cream of humanity. Below them, in descending order of humanity, are: Muslim male slaves, free Muslim women, Muslim female slaves, the males of the “People of the Book” (Jews and Christians), and, then, the females of the ‘People of the Book’. Finally, the rest of humanity comes in dead last (excuse the pun), because they lack a soul they are regarded as worthless having no rights whatsoever. This unfortunate final grouping includes Buddhists, Hindus, Mormons, atheists, agnostics, and others. But before Jews and Christians celebrate escaping last-place in this uniquely Islamic popularity contest, the fine print should first be carefully studied.

        With quotes referencing Christians and Jews from the Quran like: – “WORST OF CREATURES, PERVERSE, FRIENDS OF SATAN”, it seems impossible to characterize Islam as a tolerant religion harmless to others. By one widely accepted definition of a ‘Religion’; … “An organization dedicated to raising the spiritual awareness and moral standards and actions of its followers, and in improving peaceful relationships with others”, Islam seems to fall well short of qualifying. Early Islam was clearly neither harmless nor tolerant of non-believers. Intolerance seems the cruel norm in Islamic societies, while tolerance, charity and kindness towards different cultures and religions is glaringly absent. The fruits of extreme Islam are bitter indeed, and it is by their fruits that we should judge them.

        The clear direction appears to be that Muslims are not allowed to even be friends or take favours from Jews and Christians, unless the devotion and tax is extracted by force or threat of force.
        Quran 98:1 Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and among Al-Mushrikun (polytheists) were not going to leave (their disbelief) until there came to them clear evidence.

        Quran 98:6 Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Quran and Prophet Muhammad) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.

        Quran 5:51 O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya’ (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya’ to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya’, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong & shy; doers and unjust).

        Quran 58:19. Shaitan (Satan) has overtaken them (the Jews). So he has made them forget the remembrance of Allah. They are the party of Shaitan (Satan). Verily, it is the party of Shaitan (Satan) that will be the losers!

        Quran 4:76 Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan).

        Quran 47:35 So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islam), while you are having the upper hand. Allah is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.

        Christians and Jews then and now hold a special place in Islamic theology. In the end, they were regarded with contempt by Muhammad, and were presented in a hateful manner in the Qur’an and in modern Islamic theology today. The final direction appears to be this: When the Muslims have the upper hand, they are not to seek peace, but instead they are expected to sacrifice and toil for the continued destruction of all their enemies. The final words reported from the mouth of the dying Muhammad were a curse on the favoured ‘People of the Book’.

        From Ibn Sa’d page 322: When the last moment of the prophet was near, he used to draw a sheet over his face; but when he felt uneasy, he removed it from his face and said:

        “Allah’s damnation be on the Jews and the Christians who made the graves of their prophets objects of worship.”

        The bitterness of this final utterance from their beloved prophet, as he died a painful death at the hands of a Jewish girl (Shiias say it was Abu Bakr, Umar & their two daughters, Aisha & Hafsa, who poisoned him), obviously still weighs heavy on the minds and hearts of all of Islam. Revenge is a glorified mandate for Muslims yesterday and today.

        THE QURAN ON RELATIONS WITH NON-MUSLIM FAMILY MEMBERS

        Islam has an anti-family element, causing Muslims to fight and kill even their relatives if they reject Muhammad’s rule. Family ties, devotions, and sensibilities form the backbone of Western civilizations, from which we derive our strength and teach morality. In Islam, even normal, natural family bonds are subservient and must yield to Muhammad’s vision of Islam. That is why in many Muslim communities and households each family member is expected to police the acts, thoughts, and expressions of other members in the household. On a slightly broader scale, communities are expected to monitor the conduct of families in their neighbourhoods. So in Islamic lands, the control structure in place extends from the highest branches of the government (including the Judiciary), to the lowliest family member. The consequences imposed for failure to support the official family, neighbourhood, tribal, national policy with respect to violent Jihad vary by tribe and region, but are often quite brutal.

        Quran 48:29 Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe (or ruthless, vehement) against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.

        Quran 58:22 You (O Muhammad) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful.
        In the officially state-sponsored Wahhabi controlled elementary schools in Saudi Arabia (our alleged ally in the war on terror), there is a fifth-grade lesson book that reads as follows:

        “It is forbidden for a Muslim to be a friend of one who does not believe in God and his Messenger or who fights the Islamic religion. God has severed the [link of] friendship between Muslims and infidels. The Muslim, even if he lives far away, is your brother-in-belief, while the infidel, even if he is your brother of kin, is your enemy by religion.”

        When one takes into consideration all that Muhammad and his devoted followers ask of the faithful, the direction to have no Muslim friends makes perfect sense. It’s all part of the psychology of violence. Built-in natural human feelings of empathy and all impulses of conscience must first be overcome before an individual can perform an act of violence on another. Normal feelings of affection, respect, and trust toward a friend would get in the way of an Islamic Jihad movement. So not only does Muhammad dehumanize non-Muslims, he also specifically tells followers not to develop personal relationships with others. This philosophy and psychology, when internalized, is designed to groom the Muslim believer into becoming an effective, non-thinking, non-feeling Jihadist warrior (i.e. a killing machine). Not exactly in line with his oft repeated claim that ‘God is most merciful, most forgiving, most loving and charitable’, but that contradiction does not seem to register. Certainly any personal dilemma resulting from such contradictions are easily dismissed once fully immersed in the blood-lust and lynch-mob mentality of Islamic Militants. Apparently ‘most-merciful’ in their minds only applies to Muslims, or to survivors who agree to pay tribute, or in other words, an eternal ‘survivor tax’.

        THE INESCAPABLE INFERENCES:

        Instead of trying to comprehend and facing the true roots of militant Islam, we have preferred to hope that Islamic violence is just the pernicious work of a few individuals or radical groups. We hope that by destroying the al-Qaida network the threat of Islamic terrorism will cease. We can then put it out of our minds and hope and pretend that it will no longer affect us. We are captivated by sports, Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, and rock stars. We are happy that the DOW is back up and interest rates have lowered, and hope the recession will soon be over. Yet, those planning our destruction are still living among us and saying that Islam is a religion of peace. All the while, just as Maslama deceived his good friend Ka’b b. al-Ashraf in order to murder him, militant Muslims are prudently, patiently planning their next acts of terrorism.

        VITAL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

        (1) What are the teachings of real Islam found in the Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira with respect to the use of violence, call it jihad if you like, to aggressively spread it’s power over non-Muslims, and are these teachings valid and applicable today?

        ANSWER: It should be obvious that real Islam still calls for the use of jihad, force and violence, when able, to spread Islam’s power over non-Muslim people. The jihad may take the form of passing out literature for Islam, or it may take the form of assassination, or a bombing of a building, or a massacre, for worse. These teachings are valid and applicable even today.

        (2) Is real Islam behind and does it condone the murder of hundreds of thousands of victims all over the world, or are these Muslim terrorists doing something well outside Muhammad’s religion?
        ANSWER: Yes. Real Islam is behind the murder of hundreds of thousands of victims all over the world. Official Islamic theology taught in most parts of the world justify violent acts to further the cause of converting all to Islam, especially acts designed to weaken the “Great Satan- America”, deemed the biggest threat to that cause.

        (3) What does the future hold for Islam and the West?
        ANSWER: Continued Islamic violence. Would that it could be said otherwise, but it appears likely that Muslims will yet perform many large and small acts of murderous violence against us. If given the chance they may, one day, detonate a nuclear warhead, or warheads, as many in the movement see it as their only viable option. In order to advance Muslim theology as they see it, these militants know that the West must be brought low, regardless of the cost. They are dedicated and may eventually succeed in obtaining the bombs or bomb material from Iran, Pakistan, Korea or perhaps from a former Soviet Republic Country. Muslim militants are cognizant of how to go about this, their goal is our incapacitation, and they believe the best way to accomplish this is through the use of WMD’s.

        So, why is it that so many Muslims want to see the West broken or destroyed?

        The West is a powerful. Its military strength and cultural power represents the best hope against the violent spread of Islam. Obviously, if the West is weakened or incapacitated, then Muslim terrorists can begin to act with more impunity throughout the world.

        CONCLUSION

        By their own words and works, Islam is apparently a violent religion after all, and large parts of it continue to condone and allow the use of aggressive violence to spread its dominion over non-Muslims. The war that Muhammad launched long ago continues today, but the stakes are getting higher. America, European and Asian nations will continue to be adversely affected by the actions of real Muslims – those that are obeying their “God and Prophet” – as they have been in the past. The West previously insulated by distance and oceans are no longer safe and have become the relatively new targets of expansionist Islam. For all the cries against Zionism by Muslims, it is in truth Islam that has the most aggressive ambitions and designs on other peoples and lands.

        “Will you listen to me O Meccans? By him who holds my life in His hand I bring you slaughter.” (Muhammad, some of the earliest words spoken in Mecca, shortly after his first visit by “Gabriel”, to people who rejected his claim to prophethood). “The Life of Muhammad”, by A. Guillaume, page 131.

        “Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle (Muhammad) have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.”

        We see that Muhammad had many people murdered. By request, by command, by implication, Muhammad had many killed, some while they slept. There were no trials, no judgments, and no dialog. If you insulted Muhammad, if you doubted his credibility, or if you spoke out, you were killed. Men and women, young and old, all were killed because of Muhammad’s intolerance, anger, hatred, and disdain towards those who spoke out against him. Today, Fatwas continue to be issued demanding that faithful kill any perceived to insult the prophet or discredit his divinity. One wonders if the thin skin and short temper of Islam is due to insecurity stemming from the inherent weaknesses of its doctrine. The fact remains that challenging the doctrine of Islam or hearsay against the prophet carries the penalty of death to this day. The intellectually insincere individual full of hatred will certainly not benefit from this article; rather he will undoubtedly be greatly offended by the facts outlined herein. As the saying goes,
        “A man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still”.

        A closed mind will forever be unable to draw correct inferences from a set of facts plainly laid out before him.

        Make no mistake about it: By any standard of any age, Muhammad deployed murderous tactics that can only be described as terrorist in nature. Muhammad, indeed, taught his followers to oppress or kill non-Muslims. Today’s Muslim terrorists are following his actions literally, … like prophet, like followers.
        Today’s Muhammedan terrorists commit their acts with full understanding and belief that they are based upon what Muhammad said and did, and what he expects of them. Based upon Muhammad’s actions and teachings, large parts of Islam continues to practice, justify, support, finance, or tolerate terrorism against non-Muslims today. The life of Muhammad is and will continue to be used by militants as justification to attack and murder those who differ from them.

        Muhammad taught his followers that Islam is the final and universal religion. Where Islamic law has been instituted, no other religion is tolerated, unless it agrees to submit to Islamic rule. Today, more than forty nations have a majority population of Muslims, and Muslim leaders have spoken of their goal to spread Islam in the West, until Islam becomes a dominant, global power. That global agenda is in keeping with Muhammad’s final clear orders: convert… pay with submission … or die.

        MUSLIM WHO LEAVE ISLAM:

        Under Islamic law [the Sharia is based on the Qur’an, the example of Muhammad (sunna) and the consensus (ijmaa)], anyone falling away from faith in Islam commits an “unforgivable sin”. Such “apostates” must be taken into custody by force, and called on to repent. Anyone so confronted and who does not immediately repent and turn back to Islam has forfeited his life, and is to be put to death by the state. While this is not carried out on a regular basis in the many Islamic lands practicing Sharia, the threat is ever present. One of Islam’s most respected theologians and prolific writers in the last century, Pakistani Abu’l Ala Mawdudi, insists that both Qur’an and Hadith demand an apostate’s execution. He quotes the Qur’an (9:11-12) and the canonized Hadith: “Any person, i.e. Muslim, who has changed his religion, kill him” (Al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, p. 45). The Islamic scholar, Majid Khadduri, agrees that Qur’anic commentaries say a believer who turns back from his religion must be killed if he persists in disbelief (p. 150). Today “Islamic jihad” draws on religious texts whose interpretations, some genuinely peaceful Muslims dispute. They challenge this interpretation of jihad because they wish to live in peace with non-Muslim peoples and nations, and as a result, their lives are also threatened. Muhammad was not content to conquer by force, or kill those that merely opposed him verbally. Muhammad also taught that Muslims who leave the Islamic faith are to be murdered as well. Here are some quotes from Bukhari’s collection of Hadith. Remember, Bukhari’s Hadith is the second most important writing in Islam, following the Quran.

        Bukhari, volume 9, #17
        “Narrated Abdullah: Allah’s Messenger said, “The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Messenger, cannot be shed except in three cases: in Qisas (equality in punishment) for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (Apostate) and leaves the Muslims.”

        Bukhari volume 9, #57
        Narrated Ikrima, “Some atheists were brought to Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s messenger forbade it, saying, “Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).” I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Messenger, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.”

        Bukhari volume 9, #64
        Narrated Ali, “Whenever I tell you a narration from Allah’s messenger, by Allah, I would rather fall down from the sky, then ascribe a false statement to him, but if I tell you something between me and you, (not a Hadith), then it was indeed a trick (i.e., I may say things just to cheat my enemy). No doubt I heard Allah’s messenger saying, “During the last days there will appear some young foolish people, who will say the best words, but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will leave the faith) and will go out from their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”

        Not only did Muhammad teach that Muslims are to murder those that have left Islam, “wherever you find them”, he further taught that a Muslim who commits this type of murder of fellow Muslims will also be doing God’s service and will be rewarded. It is in this spirit and understanding that many ‘honour’ killings occur in Muslim communities.

        THE MURDER OF KABAA BIN AL-ASHRAF

        Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, a chief of the Jewish tribe of Banu Nadi, was a victim of Muhammad’s rise to power which personifies the prophet’s moral failings. Once Muhammad gained political power and the ability for force his will on others, some of the Jewish tribes around him grew mistrustful and opposed both his message and his rising influence. Muhammad ordered Ka’b bin al-Ashraf’s murder, and authorized deception in the process.

        Muhammad was driven by power; however he tried to disguise it or sublimate it by his invocation of Allah, and the Jews who lived in the town of Yathrib and elsewhere in the Arabian Peninsula who would not submit to his iron rule simply got in the way. The Jew that got in the way, that opposed the will or whim of this vicious man who covered his worldly ambitions with Allah’s mantle, was promptly dispatched to Sheol.
        The Fifth Commandment, if Muhammad knew it expressly at all, did not apply to Muhammad in his view. He doubtfully read Exodus, since he was supposed to be illiterate. Perhaps it might have done him some good had he read, “Thou shalt not MURDER. (Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy. 5:17) It would also have done him well to have heard Jesus’ angle on that commandment. (Matthew. 5:21-22). He certainly seems not to have been open to the divine injunction that prohibited murder that was contained in the recesses of his heart, i.e., the natural law.

        But in Muhammad’s view, there was no need to read the Scriptures prior to his supposed revelations; they were corrupted on Muhammad’s account (See Qur’an 5:13, 41.). And whatever was therein contained was of no moment since, by the supposed revelations of Allah which came to us through the mouth of Muhammad, whatever Muhammad did was perfect. If the Fifth Commandment has to take a back seat to Muhammad’s “perfect” desires, and if the unwritten law of God in the heart of every man that says one should not MURDER an innocent man had to be squelched, then so be it: Allah and his messenger know best.

        Unlike the God of the Jews, Allah did not say, “Thou shalt not MURDER.” Rather, Allah said, “Thou shalt MURDER.” Or so Muhammad would have it where it was to his political advantage.

        Though Muhammad had ostensibly entered into an informal treaty with the Jewish tribes in the town of Yathrib (which later was known as Medina), there was tension between Muhammad’s followers and the Jewish tribes, including the Banu Nadi. (This seems to be a chronic feature of Islam’s relationship with its neighbours, even to this day.)

        Al-Ashraf, it may be conceded, was an opponent of Muhammad, believed Muhammad a false prophet, and opposed himself to Muhammad’s worrisome rise.
        After Muhammad’s victory at the battle of Badr, al-Ashraf grew particularly concerned.
        THAT WAS NOT A CRIME!
        It was from Muhammad’s vantage point. In Muhammad’s eyes, opposition to him and his doctrine and will was anathema: nay, it was more than that; it was a virtual death sentence.
        “He [al-Ashraf] inveighed against the apostle,” wrote a plaintive poem at the loss by the Quraysh tribe defeated at Badr, and “composed amatory verses of an insulting nature about Muslim women,” Muhammad’s biographer Ibn Ishaq tells us.
        This was the extent of his alleged crimes.
        The enmity between al-Ashraf and Muhammad and Muhammad’s response to it is found in several sources, including Sahih al-Bukhari 3.45.687 and 5.59.369. The second hadith is particularly long, so only parts will be quoted here. The hadith begins:
        “Allah’s messenger said ‘Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His apostle?’
        Thereupon Maslama got up saying, ‘O Allah’s messenger! Would you like that I kill him?’
        The prophet said, ‘Yes.’
        Maslama said, ‘Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e., to deceive Ka’b).’ The prophet said, ‘You may say it.’”

        So here we have two moral lapses by Muhammad to the Realpolitik of the day. The first: a willingness to put a political opponent to death–political murder. The second: a willingness to use all manners of deceit to advance the political murder–lying. Here we find an instance of the questionable doctrine of taqiyya, or dissimulation, approved by the alleged prophet of Allah, the Arab war idol and transformed moon god who–unlike Jesus Christ who says, “I am the truth” (John 14:6)—Allah says of himself that he is the “best of deceivers,” Allahu khayru al-makirina, (Qur’an 3:54).

        Based on the pretence that, as an opponent of Muhammad, he wanted to borrow a camel load or two of food, Maslama visited al-Ashraf at night and, together with his foster brother Abu Naila, was invited into Maslama’s fort. The plan among the conspiring assassins was to compliment al-Ashraf on his perfumed hair, and, when he was distracted, to cut off his head.

        The plan worked, and together Maslama and Abu Naila cut of Muhammad’s enemy’s head.
        According to the Muslim historian Ibn Ishaq, the Muslim poet Ka’b bin Malik (who should be distinguished from the murdered Jewish poet and political enemy of Muhammad, Ka’b ibn al-Ashraf) said:
        “Sword in hand we cut [Ka’b] down.

        By Muhammad’s order when he sent secretly by night Ka’b’s brother to go to Ka’b.
        He beguiled him and brought him down with guile.
        Mahmoud [bin Maslama] was trustworthy, bold.”
        Ibn Sa’d’s Tabaqat records Muhammad’s delight at the successful murder of his political opponent:
        “Then they cut his head and took it with them [and] . . . they cast his head before him [Muhammad]. He (the prophet) praised Allah on his being slain.”
        Allahu akhbar. The pseudo-prophet can rejoice at an innocent man’s death, just like many of his followers could rejoice at the countless attack, and the deaths of millions who did none of their killers wrong. This is what happens when you are the prosecutor, the alleged victim, and the judge. The defendant, even if innocent, has no voice. This is because, in Islam, Allah and his messenger know best, Allahu wa rasulluhu a’lam.

        This is the Muslim mantra that blinds him to the fact that his alleged prophet is a sinner, a violator of the natural law, and most certainly not an authentic prophet.

    • Ajay, Pakistan is a failed country? How come they have daily bombings there?? When there are fatakras bursting daily under their arses, do we call that a failed country? No, it is called a “doomed” state. Their politicians live in fear of walking in the streets where a Taliban can appear like a ghost!

      Pakistan is a “doomed” state…see how many executions, how many more killings of leaders as well as civilians?

      • MUHAMMAD THE GOD OF MOHAMMEDANISM

        MOHAMMEDANS DEMAND:

        -Show a single Quranic passage that commands Muslims to worship Muhammad
        -Show a single hadith that commands Muslims to worship Muhammad
        -Show any companion that worshiped the Prophet Muhammad with the consensus of the other companions
        It is our pleasure to provide answers to this Mohammedan challenge.

        So here they are.

        MAKING DU’A (INVOKING) & PRAYING TO MUHAMMAD

        Muhammad instructed his followers to pray to him directly during their daily acts of worship:
        Narrated Shaqiq bin Salama:

        ‘Abdullah said, “Whenever we prayed behind the Prophet we used to recite (in sitting) ‘Peace be on Gabriel, Michael, peace be on so and so. Once Allah’s Apostle looked back at us and said, ‘Allah Himself is As-Salam (Peace), and if anyone of you prays then he should say, At-Tahiyatu lil-lahi wassalawatu wat-taiyibatu. As-Salamu ‘ALAIKA aiyuha-n-Nabiyu wa rahmatu-l-lahi wa barakatuhu. As-Salam alaina wa ala ibadil-lah is-salihin. (All the compliments, prayers and good things are due to Allah: peace be on YOU, O Prophet and Allah’s mercy and blessings be on YOU. Peace be on us and on the true pious slaves of Allah). (If you say that, it will be for all the slaves in the heaven and the earth). Ash-hadu an la-ilaha illa-l-lahu wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasuluhu. (I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and I also testify that Muhammad is His slave and His Apostle).”
        (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 12, Number 794)

        This isn’t the only time that Muslims were instructed to pray and/or make invocations to their prophet.
        There is a specific narration which says that Muhammad actually taught a blind man to pray to Allah as well as to himself, an invocation which Muslims continued to use long after Muhammad’s death:

        Tirmidhi relates, through his chain of narrators from ‘Uthman ibn Hunayf, that a blind man came to the Prophet and said, “I’ve been afflicted in my eyesight, so please pray to Allah for me.” The Prophet said: “Go make ablution (wudu), perform two rak’as of prayer, and then say:
        “Oh Allah, I ask You and turn to You through my Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet of mercy; O MUHAMMAD (YA MUHAMMAD), I SEEK YOUR INTERCESSION with my Lord for the return of my eyesight [and in another version: “for my need, that it may be fulfilled. O Allah, grant him intercession for me”].”
        The Prophet added, “And if there is some need, do the same.” (Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, Reliance of the Traveller: The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law (Umdat Al-Salik) in Arabic with facing English text, Commentary and Appendices, edited and translated by Nuh Hah Mim Keller [Amana Corporation; Revised edition, July 1, 1997], w40.3, p. 935; bold and capital emphasis ours)

        Muhammad expressly instructed the blind man to address him directly in his prayer in the same way that he addresses Allah!

        The blind man wasn’t told to simply ask Allah to heal him on behalf or for the sake of Muhammad. Rather, he was specifically directed to address Muhammad directly by asking for his intercession.
        Now just in case Zaatari attempts to explain this away by saying that this took place when Muhammad was still alive, the following is a report of a man who offered up this same exact invocation during the caliphate of Uthman bin Affan:

        Moreover, Tabarani, in his “al-Mu’jam al saghir,” reports a hadith from ‘Uthman ibn Hunayf that a man repeatedly visited Uthman ibn Affan concerning something he needed, but Uthman paid no attention to him or his need. The man met Ibn Hunayf and complained to him about the matter – this being after the death (wisal) of the Prophet and after the caliphates of Abu Bakr and Umar – so Uthman ibn Hunayf, who was one of the Companions who collected hadiths and was learned in the religion of Allah, said: “Go to the place of ablution and perform ablution (wudu), then come to the mosque, perform two rak’as of prayer therein, and say:

        ‘O Allah, I ask You and turn to You through our Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet of mercy; O MUHAMMAD (YA MUHAMMAD), I TURN THROUGH YOU to my Lord, that He may fulfill my need,’ and mention your need. Then come so that I can go with you [to the caliph Uthman].” So the man left and did as he had been told, then went to the door of Uthman ibn Affan, and the doorman came, took him by the hand, brought him to Uthman ibn Affan, and seated him next to him on a cushion. ‘Uthman asked, “What do you need?” and the man mentioned what he wanted, and Uthman accomplished it for him, then he said, “I hadn’t remembered your need until just now,” adding, “Whenever you need something, just mention it.” Then, the man departed, met Uthman ibn Hunayf, and said to him, “May Allah reward you! He didn’t see to my need or pay any attention to me until you spoke with him.” Uthman ibn Hunayf replied, “By Allah, I didn’t speak to him, but I have seen a blind man come to the Messenger of Allah and complain to him of the loss of his eyesight. The Prophet said, “Can you not bear it?’ and the man replied, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I do not have anyone to lead me around, and it is a great hardship for me.’ The Prophet told him, ‘Go to the place of ablution and perform ablution (wudu), then pray two rak’as of prayer and make the supplications.’” Ibn Hunayf went on, “By Allah, we didn’t part company or speak long before the man returned to us as if nothing had ever been wrong with him.” (Ibid., w40.4, pp. 936-937; bold and capital emphasis ours)
        Here was an individual at the time of the caliphate of Uthman ibn Affan who offers up the same prayer that the blind man did, praying and asking Muhammad in the same way that he asks Allah!(1)
        Nor was this an isolated instance. We find situations where Muslims would cry out to Muhammad for their specific needs:

        437. What a man says when his foot goes to sleep
        964. ‘Abdu’r-Rahman ibn Sa’d said, “Ibn ‘Umar’s foot went to sleep and a man said to him, ‘Mention the person YOU LOVE MOST.’ He said, ‘Muhammad.'” (Aisha Bewley, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari, XD. Gestures; *; capital and underline emphasis ours)

        Notice the irony here. Ibn Umar didn’t cry out to Allah, as we would expect him to do seeing that Muslims are supposed to love their lord more than anything. Rather, Ibn Umar calls out to Muhammad instead!
        All of these narrations establish the fact that Muhammad commanded his followers to worship him since he himself is supposed to have said that supplication and prayer are the very essence of worship, and that Allah loves nothing more than supplication:

        3828. It was narrated from Nu‘man bin Bashir that the Messenger of Allah said: “Indeed the supplication is the worship.” Then he recited: “And your Lord said: Invoke Me, I will respond to you.”[1] (Sahih) (English Translation of Sunan Ibn Majah – Compiled by Imam Muhammad Bin Yazeed Ibn Majah Al-Qazwini, From Hadith No. 3657 to 4341, Ahadith edited and referenced by Hafiz Abu Tahir Zubair ‘Ali Za’i, translated by Nasiruddin al-Khattab (Canada), final review by Abu Khaliyl (USA) [Darussalam Publications and Distributors, First Edition: June 2007], Volume 5, 34. The Chapter On Supplication, Chapter 1. The Virtue of Supplication, p. 95; underline emphasis ours)
        [1] Ghafir 40:60. (Ibid.)

        And:
        296. The excellence of supplication
        712. Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet said, “Nothing is dearer to Allah than supplication.”
        713. Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet said, “The noblest act of worship is supplication.”
        714. An-Nu’man ibn Bashir reported that the Prophet said, “Supplication is worship.” Then he recited, “Call on Me and I will answer you.” (Bewley, Al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari, XXX. Supplication; *)
        These are just some of the many ahadith which have been used by Muslim scholars to prove that making du’a or supplication to anyone other than Allah is nothing more than creature worship, and therefore shirk:

        COMMENTS:
        Asking anything that is subjected to Allah alone from any creature IS WORSHIPING THAT CREATURE, so it is considered polytheism, (i.e., associating partners with Allah). The creature might be a non-living thing like a stone, sun, straw, tree, etc., or a living thing like an animal, jinni, angel or even a pious person or a Prophet; asking them for anything which is beyond the ability of creatures is polytheism. (English Translation of Sunan Ibn Majah, Volume 5, 34. The Chapter On Supplication, Chapter 1. The Virtue of Supplication, pp. 95-96; capital and underline emphasis ours)

        Renowned Salafi scholar Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi quotes other notable scholars concerning the definition of shirk:

        Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab (d. 1206 A.H.) defined it as: ‘… directing an act of worship to other than Allah, (such as) calling out to others as well as Allah, or intending an act of worship that Allah has commanded to other than Allah.’ …

        Thus, shirk involves believing in a partner along with Allah. Such a ‘partner’ could be a partner in lordship (rububiyyah), or in worship (uluhiyyah), or in attributes (asma wa l-sifat). In other words, the essence of shirk involves giving Allah’s rights to other than He. Therefore, to claim that a certain object or deity has power to bless one with one’s needs is shirk. Likewise, to prostrate or MAKE DU‘A to other than Allah is also shirk. And the claim that any created object knows everything, or can hear any plea directed to it, is shirk. Whenever any specific right of Allah’s is given to any other object, whether that object be a living being or an inanimate object, real or imagined, shirk has occurred. (An Explanation of Muhammad ibn ‘Abdul Wahhab’s Kashf al-Shubuhat – Critical Study of Shirk, translation and commentary by Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi [Al-Hidaayah Publishing & Distribution, Birmingham, UK], pp. 14-15; bold and capital emphasis ours)

        And:

        2. Shirk in Uluhiyyah. The concept of Tauhid al-Uluhiyyah necessitates that one direct each and every act of worship to Allah and only to Allah. Thus, to direct any act of worship to other than Allah is an example of shirk in Uluhiyyah. Examples of acts of worship that are due only to Allah are DU‘A, PRAYER, prostration, vows and oaths. Shirk in Uluhiyyah is the most common type of shirk amongst mankind. This is because most of mankind affirms the existence of One Creator, yet directs acts of worship to other than Him. Thus, Christians, while believing in God ‘the Father’, direct most of their worship to Jesus Christ. (Ibid., p. 37; bold and capital emphasis ours)

        Qadhi also explains why there is absolutely no justification in Islam for praying to a prophet that has died, especially prayers that are offered at or near his gravesite:

        4- Comparing dead prophets with living ones. The belief that prophets are alive in their graves continuing a life similar to the life of this world drives many people to ask dead prophets for favors and du‘as. The type of life that a prophet enjoys after his death is completely different to the one that we experience in this world, and the presumption that they are the same leads to shirk. Thus, there is no evidence that the prophets can hear the conversations that take places. The only matter that the Prophet stated reaches him after death is the sending of salutations upon him, for Allah has assigned special angels to bring him the salams. Other than that, there is no evidence that requests reach him as well. Hence, none of the Companions ever requested any matter from him after his death [sic]. (Ibid., p. 50)

        And:

        2. Even on the supposition that this right existed, the Qur’an explicitly mentions that calling out to other than Allah is shirk. Therefore, even if we hypothetically accepted the adversary’s premise that these prophets and saints have a right over Allah that their requests be answered, we can respond by stating that Allah labeled asking these dead prophets and saints as a sin THAT HE WILL NOT FORGIVE. (Ibid., p. 120; bold and capital emphasis ours)

        Qadhi further argues that calling on someone other than Allah in one’s heart during times of distress is an act of hidden shirk:

        Hidden shirk is that which occurs in a person’s heart, and which other people cannot see or ascertain. For example, if one’s heart calls out to other than Allah at times of distress, this is an example of hidden shirk. Likewise, if a sick person puts his complete trust in a doctor to cure his disease (neglecting the fact that Allah is the One Who cures), this too is a type of hidden shirk. (Ibid., p. 42)
        This means that Muhammad taught his companions to commit both manifest and hidden shirk!

        ALLAH TAKES MUHAMMAD AS HIS PARTNER

        That’s not all. Muhammad made himself Allah’s partner in respect to salvation, love, and devotion.
        For instance, Muhammad ordered his followers not to love anything as much as, or more than, Allah AND himself:

        Say: ‘If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your clan, your possessions that you have gained, commerce you fear may slacken, dwellings you love — if these are dearer to you than God AND His Messenger, and to struggle in His way, then wait till God brings His command; God guides not the people of the ungodly.’ S. 9:24 Arberry

        And:

        Narrated Anas:
        The Prophet said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:

        1. The one to whom Allah AND His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else.
        2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake.
        3. Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 15)

        Muhammad further demanded that all true believers fully submit themselves to him and his desires:
        But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission S. 4:65 Hilali-Khan

        Muhammad went so far as to connect obedience to his orders with the forgiveness of sins and Allah’s love, e.g., if a person wants Allah to love him/her and to be forgiven of his/her sins then s/he must perfectly obey Muhammad:

        Say (O Muhammad to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur’an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Say (O Muhammad): “Obey Allah AND the Messenger (Muhammad).” But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the disbelievers. S. 3:31-32 Hilali-Khan

        After hearing Muhammad recite these verses, some of his contemporaries accused him of trying to make himself comparable to Jesus in Christian devotion:

        (Say) O Muhammad!: (If ye love Allah) and His religion, (follow me) follow my Religion; (Allah will love you) He will increase your love (and forgive you your sins) which were committed when you followed Judaism. (Allah is Forgiving) of whoever repents, (Merciful) towards whoever dies in a state of repentance. This verse was revealed about the Jews who claimed they were the children of Allah and His beloved ones. When this verse was revealed ‘Abdullah Ibn Ubayy said: “Muhammad is commanding us to love him as the Christians loved Jesus”, and the Jews said: “Muhammad wants us to take him as a compassionate Lord, just as the Christians took Jesus as a compassionate Lord”. (Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs, Q. 3:31;)

        These folks could clearly see that Muhammad was commanding his followers to view him as an object of religious worship in the same way that Christians did (still do) with Christ. However, Christians admit that Jesus is God in the flesh, and is therefore worthy of all worship, glory, and honor. Muhammad, on the other hand, is supposed to be an imperfect, fallible human being. To, therefore, fully submit to and perfectly obey him is to give a creature the honor and reverence which belongs only God.

        But it gets even better (or should we say worse?). According to another tradition, Q. 3:31 was composed to encourage the pagans to abandon their idols for Muhammad!

        (Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah…) [3:31]. Said al-Hasan ibn Jurayj: “Some people had claimed at the time of the Messenger of Allah that they loved Allah. They said: ‘O Muhammad! Verily, we love our Lord’, and so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse”. Juwaybir also reported that al-Dahhak related that Ibn ‘Abbas said: “The Prophet saw the Quraysh in the Sacred Mosque prostrating to their idols which they erected therein, with eggs of ostriches hanging from them and earrings dangling from their ears. And so he said to them: ‘O Quraysh! You have contravened the religion of your fathers Abraham and Ishmael, both of whom were Muslims’. They responded: ‘O Muhammad! We worship them out of love for Allah and so that they bring us closer to Him’. Upon which Allah, exalted is He, revealed (Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah) and you worship your idols to bring you closer to Him, as you claim, then (follow me; Allah will love you…) for I am His Messenger to you, His proof against you, AND I AM MORE WORTHY OF REVERENCE THAN YOUR IDOLS”. Al-Kalbi also related from Abu Salih that Ibn ‘Abbas said: “When the Jews said: ‘We are the children of Allah and His beloved’, Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse. Then the Messenger of Allahread it to the Jews but they refused to accept it”. Muhammad ibn Ishaq reported that Muhammad ibn Ja’far ibn al-Zubayr said: “This was revealed about the Christians of Najran, for they had said: ‘We venerate and worship Christ out of love and veneration for Allah’. And so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse as a response”. (‘Alī ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi, Asbab al-Nuzul; bold and capital emphasis ours)

        Muhammad not only wanted the pagans to get rid of their idols, he also wanted them to take the very love and reverence which they had for their gods and give it to him instead.

        In other words, Muhammad basically wanted everyone to make him their personal idol!

        This leads us to our next section.

        MUSLIMS ARE TO REVERE & GLORIFY MUHAMMAD DAY & NIGHT

        The Quran claims that it is written in clear Arabic so that people can understand:
        Thus doth God MAKE CLEAR His Signs to you: In order that ye may understand. S. 2:242 Y. Ali
        A. L. R. These are the Ayats of Revelation, – of a Qur’an that makes things clear. S. 15:1 Y. Ali Hilali-Khan
        We verily, have made it a Qur’an in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). S. 43:3 Hilali-Khan – cf. Q. 2:187, 219, 242, 266; 3:103, 118; 4:26, 176; 5:89; 11:1; 16:103 24:18, 58-59, 61; 44:3; 57:17

        The Islamic scripture also says that it fully explains all of its verses:

        And thus do We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) IN DETAIL, that the way of the Mujrimun (criminals, polytheists, sinners), may become manifest. S. 6:55 Hilali-Khan
        Say: “Shall I seek for judge other than God? – when He it is Who hath sent unto you the Book, EXPLAINED IN DETAIL.” They know full well, to whom We have given the Book, that it hath been sent down from thy Lord in truth. Never be then of those who doubt. S. 6:114

        Alif Lam Ra. A Book whose verses ARE SET CLEAR, and then distinguished, from One All-wise, All-aware: S. 11:1 Arberry

        And the day We shall raise up from every nation a witness against them from amongst them, and We shall bring thee as a witness against those. And We have sent down on thee the Book making clear EVERYTHING, and as a guidance and a mercy, and as good tidings to those who surrender. S. 16:89 Arberry

        He sets forth for you a parable from your ownselves, – Do you have partners among those whom your right hands possess (i.e. your slaves) to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you? Whom you fear as you fear each other? Thus do We explain the signs IN DETAIL to a people who have sense. S. 30:28 Hilali-Khan

        A Book, whereof the verses are EXPLAINED IN DETAIL; – a Qur’an in Arabic, for people who understand; – S. 41:3 Y. Ali

        Muhammad even claimed to be gifted with the most eloquent speech and expressions:
        Narrated Abu Huraira:
        The Prophet said, “I have been given the keys of eloquent speech and given victory with awe (cast into the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping last night, the keys of the treasures of the earth were brought to me till they were put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle left (this world) and now you people are carrying those treasures from place to place. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 87, Number 127)

        And:

        Abu Burda reported on the authority of his father: Allah’s Messenger sent me and Mu’adh to Yemen saying: Call people (to the path of righteousness) and give good tidings to the (people), and do not repel them, make things easy for them and do not make things difficult. I (Burda) said: Allah’s Messenger, give us a religious verdict about two kinds of drinks which we prepare in Yemen. One is Bit’ which is prepared from honey; it is a fermented Nabidh and is strong and turns into wine, and (the second is) Mizr which is prepared from millet and barley. Thereupon, Allah’s Messenger, who had been gifted with the most eloquent and pithy expressions, said: I forbid you from every intoxicant that keeps you away from prayer. (Sahih Muslim, Book 023, Number 4961)

        In light of such assertions, this means that we are to assume that the following verse,
        Surely We have sent you as a witness and as a bearer of good news and as a warner, That you may believe in Allah and His Apostle and may HELP HIM and REVERE HIM, and GLORIFY HIM, day and night. S. 48:8-9

        Was deliberately written in such a way where the one being helped is the same one that is being revered and glorified. In the immediate context this can only be Muhammad, i.e. he is the one whom Muslims are not only ordered to help, but also commanded to worship and praise!

        After all, if this is referring to Allah then this implies that he is an impotent deity who requires and needs the help of his creatures. Yet to say that this is refers to Muhammad basically means that Muslims are commanded to glorify their prophet in the same way that they glorify their god!

        The following Christian author explains the major problems and dilemma which the grammatical structure of this passage causes for Muslims:

        “This sentence is disrupted because of a sudden shift from addressing Muhammad to addressing other people. Apart from this, the accusative pronoun in ‘succour Him, and reverence Him’ refers, beyond doubt, to Muhammad, who was mentioned earlier, not to God as the English translator understood it. But ‘give Him glory’ refers to God. The entire verse is chaotic. The reader cannot be expected to understand its true meaning from the arrangement of words. It is kufr (‘unbelief’) to say ‘succour Him, and reverence Him, and that you may give Him glory at the dawn and in the evening’ about Muhammad, since glory should be given to God alone. It is also kufr to make such a statement with reference to God, since God almighty is not in need for succour or help!” (‘Abdallah ‘Abd al-Fadi, Is the Qur’an Infallible? [Light of Life, PO Box 13, A-9503 Villach, Austria], pp. 182-183;)

        There is a lot more evidence which we could have easily produced but, for the sake of brevity, this will have to suffice for now.

        ENDNOTES:

        (1) Zaatari may wish to argue that this is not an authentic narration, and if so, then he would be grossly mistaken. The greatest hadith scholars have all classified this report as absolutely sound:
        This is an explicit, unequivocal text from a prophetic Companion proving the legal validity of tawassul through the dead. The account has been classified as rigorously authenticated (sahih) by Baihaqi, Mundhiri, and Haythami.

        AUTHENTICITY OF THE HADITH OF THE BLIND MAN
        Tirmidhi has stated that the hadith of the blind man is “a hadith that is well or rigorously authenticated but singular, being unknown except through his chain of narrators, from the hadith of Abu Ja’far, who is not Abu Ja’far Khatmi,” which means that the narrators of this hadith, despite Abu Ja’far being unknown to Tirmidhi, were acceptable to the degree of being well or rigorously authenticated in either case.
        But scholars before Tirmidhi established that Abu Ja’far, this person unknown to Tirmidhi, was Abu Ja’far Khatmi himself. Ibn Abi Khaythama said: “The name of this Abu Ja’far, whom Hammad ibn Salama relates from, is ‘Umayr ibn Yazid, and is the Abu Ja’far that Shu’ba relates from,” and then he related the hadith by the channel of transmission of ‘Uthman from Shu’ba from Abu Ja’far.
        Ibn Taymiya, after relating the hadith of Tirmidhi, said: “All scholars say that he is Abu Ja’far Khatmi, and this is correct.”

        Reflect on this.

        The hadith master, Ibn Hajar, notes in Taqrib al-tahdhib that he is Khatmi, and that he is reliable (saduq).
        Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr likewise says that he is Khatmi, in al-Istii’ab fi ma’rifa al-ashab. Moreover, Baihaqi related the hadith by way of Hakim and confirmed that it was rigorously authenticated (SAHIH), Hakim having related it by a chain of transmission meeting the standards of Bukhari and Muslim, which the hadith master Dhahabi confirmed, and Shawkani cited as evidence. Dhahabi and Shawkani, who are they? The meaning of this is that all the men of the hadith’s chain of transmission are known to top Imams of hadith such as Dhahabi (and who is severer than he?), Ibn Hajar (and who is more precise, learned, or painstaking than he?), Hakim, Baihaqi, Tabarani, Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr, Shawkani, and even Ibn Taymiya.

        This hadith was recorded by Bukhari in his al-Tarikh al-kabir, by Ibn Majah in his Sunan, where he said it was rigorously authenticated (SAHIH), by Nasa’i in Amal al-yawm wa al-layla, by Abu Nu’aym in Ma’rifa al-Sahaba, by Baihaqi in Dala’il al-nubuwwa, by Mundhiri in al-Targhib wa al-tahrib, by Haythami in Majma’ al zawa’id wa manba’ al-fawa’id, by Tabarani in al-Mu’jam al-kabir, by Ibn Khuzayma in his Sahih, and by others. Nearly 15 hadith masters (huffaz, hadith authorities with more than 100,000 hadiths and their chains of transmission by memory) have explicitly stated that this hadith is rigorously authenticated (SAHIH). As mentioned above, it has come with a chain of transmission meeting the standards of Bukhari and Muslim, so there is nothing left for a critic to attack or slanderer to disparage concerning the authenticity of the hadith. Consequently, as for the permissibility of supplicating Allah (tawassul) through either a living or dead person, it follows by human reason, scholarship, and sentiment, that there is flexibility in the matter. Whoever wants to can either take tawassul or leave it, without causing trouble or making accusations, since it has been this thoroughly checked (Adilla Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama’a, 79-83). (Keller, Reliance of the Traveller, pp. 937-938;)

        The author continues:

        It is well to review some salient features of the proof that was given, such as:
        (1) that there are 2 hadiths, Tirmidhi’s hadith of the blind man and Tabarani’s hadith of the man in need to whom Uthman ibn Hunayf related the story of the blind man, teaching him the tawassul that the Prophet had taught the blind man.
        (2) Tirmidhi’s hadith is rigorously authenticated (sahih), being the subject of the above investigation of its chain of narrators, the authenticity of which is established beyond a reasonable doubt and attested to by nearly 15 of the foremost hadith specialists of Islam. The hadith explicitly proves the validity of supplicating Allah (tawassul) through a living intermediary, as the Prophet was alive at the time. The author of the article holds that the hadith implicitly shows the validity of supplicating Allah (tawassul) through a deceased intermediary as well, since:

        The Prophet told the blind man to go perform ablution (wudu) pray two rak’as, and then make the supplication containing the words, “O Muhammad, I seek your intercession with my Lord for the return of my eyesight,” which is a call upon somebody physically absent, a state of which the living and the dead are alike.

        Supplicating Allah (tawassul) through a living or deceased intermediary is, in the author’s words, “not tawassul through a physical body, or through a life or death, but rather through the positive meaning attached to the person in both life and death, for the body is but the vehicle that carries that significance.
        And perhaps the most telling reason, though the author does not mention it, is that everything the Prophet ordered to be done during his lifetime was legislation valid for all generations until the end of time unless proven otherwise by a subsequent indication from the Prophet himself, the tawassul he taught during his lifetime not requiring anything else to be generalized to any time thereafter.

        (3) The authenticity of Tabarani’s hadith of the man in need during the caliphate of Uthman is not discussed by the article in detail, but deserves consideration, since the hadith explicitly proves the legal validity of supplicating Allah (tawassul) through the deceased, for ‘Uthman ibn Hunayf and indeed all the prophetic Companions, by scholarly consensus (ijma’), were legally upright (‘udul), and are above being impugned with teaching someone an act of disobedience, much less idolatry (shirk). The hadith is rigorously authenticated (sahih), as Tabarani explicitly states in his al-Mu’jam al-saghir. The translator, wishing to verify the matter further, to the hadith with its chain of narrators to hadith specialist Sheikh Shu’ayb Arna’ut, who after examining it, agreed that it was rigorously authenticated (sahih) as Tabarani indicated, a judgement which was also confirmed to the translator by the Moroccan hadith specialist Sheikh ‘Abdullah Muhammad Ghimari, who characterized the hadith as “very rigorously authenticated,” and noted that hadith masters Haythami and Mundhiri had explicitly concurred with Tabarani on its being rigorously authenticated (sahih). The upshot is that the recommendedness of tawassul to Allah Most High – through the living or the dead – is the position of the Shafi’i school, which is why both our author Ibn Naqib Al-Misri, and Imam Nawawi in his Al-Adhkar (281-282), and al-Majmu explicitly record that tawassul through the Prophet and asking his intercession are recommended. A final article below by a Hanafi scholar concludes the discussion. (Ibid., pp. 938-939; bold emphasis ours)

        Hence, Mohammedans must contend with the fact that it was their own false prophet who actually permitted his followers to worship him as a god since, as Muhammad himself is reported to have taught, invocation or supplication (du’a) is the very essence of Islamic worship.

    THEIR ALLAH IS A FUCKING ARABIAN ILLUSION.

    THEIR QURAN WAS PLAGIARIZED & COPIED & PASTED FROM THE BIBLE, THE TALMUD, THE WRITINGS OF ZOROASTER, AND THE SABEANS

    SABIANS OF THE QURAN:

    The Qu’ran briefly announces the Sabians as people of the book but provides no details as to who they were. It is only logical that considering there is no explanations on who they were is that either the Sabians were well known at the time of Mohammed or that the name Sabian describes who they were in one word.

    There also appears in many written books a confusion as to who the Sabians are. They are described as everything from star worshippers to descendants of the Queen of Sheba. Many authors only refer to the Sabians of Harran as the Sabians of the Qu’ran and that today there are no Sabians left. Yet in the border areas of Southern Iraq and Iran there is a group of people who are known as the Mandaeans. Locally the Moslems refer to these people as Subi- The Sabians.

    There is a lot of evidence that shows the Mandaeans are not the Harranians and are the true Sabians of the Qu’ran. Many authors have mixed up the various reports about the Sabians without first dividing them into two different groups. This confusion began when the Harrians (in the 9th century) stole the name Sabians in order to protect themselves from the Moslems.

    These Sabians of Harran [the ones that are falsely identified with the Qu’ran] are planet and idol worshippers. Yet throughout the centuries the true Sabians of the Qu’ran have never been forgotten. They are the Mandaeans, a monotheistic group that worships God and God alone.

    Let me put forth the evidence that supports this.

    1. The word Sabean (Sabian)
    2. The etymology of the word sabiun
    3. The Arab writers before 832 to 833 AD
    4. The Arab writers after 833 AD
    5. Conclusion

    1. The word Sabian (Sabaean)

    The whole debate on who the Sabians are is caused because of the following verses from the Qu’ran, the Holy Book of Islam:

    2:62 “Those who believe, and the Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabeans, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.” (87)

    5: 69 “Those who believe and the Jews and the Sabaeans [Sabians] and this Christians— whoever believes in Allah and the last day anddoes good they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (88)

    2: 17 “Those who believe and those how are the Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians [Zoroastrians] and those who set up gods (with Allah)– Allah will decide between them on the day of resurrection for God is a Witness over all things.” (89)

    But just what does the word Sabians mean and where does it come from. There are two specific uses for the word. They are:

    1. The sabium is the plural of sabi. There are two roots associated with this word.

    A. The first root is saba’a meaning “to change, to come out, to convert, to return” (90) According to medieval scholars the Arabs used this verb for the stars when they came out and night—also for a camel when it returned—but it is more commonly used for someone who has changed religions. Two examples are: when someone became a Muslim —saba’s fulanun “ so and so changed his religion” (91) and sabana sabana “ we have changed our religion, converted” (92) used by the people of Ben Jazimah when Kalid ibn al-Walid.

    B. The word saba means to “incline, to turn over”. (93) The Arabs use this verb for when a man has left his religion and is inclined to another.

    2. The word sabi was used to describe Mohammed during his time in Mecca. Islamic scholars give the explanation for this word simply as “one who has changed his religion” so thus the prophet was called sabi. On the other hand those Muslim scholars who lived during the early Islamic period and knew of Mohammed make a specific connection between the word sabi for the prophet and his teaching. According to these early writers the teaching of the prophet is connected with the beliefs of the Sabians who live in Iraq with a monotheistic belief system. (94)

    ‘Abd al-Rahman ‘ibn ‘Zayd (d.798 AD) wrote:
    “The polytheists used to say of the prophet and his companions ‘these are the Sabians’ comparing them to them, because the Sabians who live Jaziartal-Mawsil (today known as Iraq) would say ‘there is no God but God’.” (95)

    Rabi’ah ‘ibn ‘Ubbad (who lived at the same time as Mohammed) wrote:
    “I saw the prophet when I was a pagan. He was saying to the people, ‘if you want to save yourselves, accept that there is no God but Allah’ At this moment I noticed a man behind him saying ‘he is a sabi.’ When I asked somebody who he was he told me he was ‘Abu Lahab, his uncle.” (96)

    Both ‘Ibn Jurayi (d. 767) and ‘Ata ‘ibn Abi Rabah (d.732) wrote:
    “I saw the prophet when I was a pagan. He was saying to the people, ‘if you want to save yourselves, accept that there is no God but Allah’ At this moment I noticed a man behind him saying ‘he is a sabi.’ When I asked somebody who he was he told me he was ‘Abu Lahab, his uncle’ Of the relationship between the Sabians who lived in Sawad (in Iraq ) and Mohammed it is mention that the polytheists of Mecca were heard to say of Mohammed “he has become a Sabian.” (97)

    ‘Ibn Jurayi (who lived in the 8th century) wrote:
    ” He (Mohammed) is a Sabian” (98)

    ‘Abd al-Rahman ‘ibn Zayd (d798 AD) wrote:
    The prophet and his companions are referred to as “these are the Sabians” comparing Mohammed to the Sabians (99)

    2. The etymology of the word sabiun

    It is a common belief that the word Sabean comes from Sabi’un (“Convert”), meaning one who ‘converts’ from the worship of many gods to the worship of the One True God’ The definition was used mainly by Arab scholars from the middle ages. According to many western scholars the word sabiun is not of Arab origin. The most logical theory is that the word used by the Arabs was originally Mandaic (the language of the Mandaeans- also known as the Sabians of the Qur’an). In Mandaic the verb sb was developed from the Syriac verb. In Mandaic the ayn of the Syriac is changed into the alaf in Mandaic. The Arabs then borrowed the word root sb from the Mandaeans. Lets look into this in more depth. (100)

    Arab lexicographers explain the word sabi as being derived from the verb which, means “arise, apostatize” or “incline, turn away from the (true) religion” Thus giving the meaning “ those who take on a new religion other than their own” just like Mohammed did. Western scholars do not accept this definition. The western scholars while they differ on the etymology they all agree that the word is non-Arab in origin.

    E. Peacock in 1649 suggest that the word sabi is derived from the Hebrew sabba meaning “army, troops”. (101) M. Tradieu in 1986 once again brings up this theory. (102) R. Bell leans towards the word being a play on the name Sabeans of South Arabia. (103) H. Grimme looked to the Ethopic verb sbh which means “tributum pendere” (weigh, tribute) (104) J. Wellhausen, (105) D. Chwolsohn (106), and E.S. Drower (107) suggests that this term is connected with the Syriac verb sb which means to “dip, moisten, dye, baptize” J. Segal explains the word comes from the geographical term Soba– (the city of Nisibis). (108)

    The word Sabian was already in used before the appearance of Mohammed. Eusebius recounts the works of Hegesippus who named the sects that once existed among the Jews.

    “There were, moreover, various opinions in the matter of circumcision among the children of Israel, held by those who were opposed to the tribe of Judah and to Christ: such as the Essenes, the Galileans, the Hemerobaptists, the Masbothaei, the Samaritans, the Sadducees, the Pharisees.” (109)

    Another form of the word Masbuthaeans, ‘Basmothaeans’, appears in the Apostolic Constitutions, in a list of Jewish heresies.

    For even the Jewish nation had wicked heresies: …Sadducees … the Pharisees … the Basmotheans … the Hemerobaptists…the Ebionites…the Essenes. ” (110)

    The word Masbuthaeans comes from the same root as the word Sabian. In Mandaic the word Masbuta is the term used for the baptismal rite. The Mandaic word Masbuta also comes from the root SBA that means to immerse, dip in, or baptize. (111) This is the same root that is used for the word Sabian (also spelled Sabaean). The Sampsaeans, as recorded by Epiphanius, honored life and the water the life that originated in the water. Epiphanius did have a look at one of their books from which he transcribe the following:

    “I will be your witness on the great day of Judgement.” (112)

    This saying is very familiar to Mandaean students in comparison and use of words. Very easily this could have been or is a phrase from a Mandaean text.

    Eisenman concludes that the word “Sampsaeans” is also just another form of the word “Sabaeans”.

    “These ‘Elchasaites are virtually indistinguishable from another group Epiphanius is later calling the ‘Sampsaeans’, another probable corruption or variation of the Syric / Islamic Sabians or ‘Masbuthaeans, that is Daily Bathers, below.” (113)

    Many Arab writers have written the about the Sabians in what could be classified as ancient literature. These Arab writers can be divided into two groups. The first set is those writers closest to the time of Mohammed who wrote about the Sabians. The other group is the writers after the Caliph al-Mamun.

    3. Below is a list of the early Islamic writers and their views on who or what the Sabians are.

    ‘Abd ‘Allah ‘ibn al-‘Abbas (lived about 650 AD) wrote:
    The religion of the Sabians is a sect of Christianity. (114)

    Ziyad ‘ibn ‘Abihi (d. 672 AD) who was the governor of Iraq during the first Umayyad caliph Mur awiyah wrote:
    The Sabians believed in prophets and prayed five times daily. (115)

    Mujahid ‘ibn Jarir (d 722 AD) wrote:
    The Sabians have no distinctive religion and is somewhere between Judaism and Magianism. (116)

    ‘Ibn Abi Nujayh (d749) wrote:
    The Sabians were between Judaism and Magianism. (117)

    Suddi (d745 AD) also wrote:
    The Sabian religion is between Judaism and Magianism. (118)

    Hasan al-Basri (d728 AD) wrote:
    They read the zabur (Psalms) and pray in the direction of the qiblah. He also wrote that the Sabian religion resembled the Magians and worshipped angels. (119)

    Wahb ‘ibn Munabbih (d 728-732 AD) who was originally from Iran wrote:
    The Sabians believe “there is no God but God” and that they do not have canonical law. (120)

    ‘Ata ‘ibn ‘Abi Rabah (d732 AD) wrote:
    The Sabians live in “Sawad” and are not identical with the Magians, Christians, or Jews. (121)

    ‘Ibn Jurayi (who lived in the 8th century) also wrote:
    The Sabians are in Sawad and are between the Magians, Christians, or Jews. He also wrote that the polytheists said of Mohammed “He is a Sabian”. (122)

    Qatadah ‘ibn Di’amah (d736 AD) wrote:
    The Sabians worshipped angels, read zabur, prayed five ritual prayers. In addition he writes that they pray to the sun. (123)

    ‘Abdul al-Zanad (d.747 AD) wrote:
    The Sabians are from “Kutha” in Iraq, they believe in prophets, fast 30 days in a year, and pray 5 times daily towards Yaman. (124)

    ‘Abu Hanifah (d.767 AD) who is the founder of the Hanafite School of Islamic Law wrote:
    The Sabians read zabur and are between Judaism and Christianity. (125)

    ‘Awza’ (d.773 AD) a representative of the ancient Syrian school of religious studies wrote:
    The Sabians are between Judaism and Christianity. (126)

    Malik ‘ibn ‘Anas (d795) wrote:
    The Sabians are between Judaism and Christianity and they have no scriptures. (127)

    Khalil ‘ibn Ahmad (d. 786-787 AD) who was in Basra before his death, wrote:
    The Sabians believe they belong to the prophet Noah, they read zabur, and their religion looks like Christianity. He also states that they worship the angels. (128)

    ‘Abd al-Rahman ‘ibn Zayd (d. 798 AD) wrote:
    The Sabians say that their religion is a religion to itself and they live near Mosul (jazirat al-mawsil) and believe in only one God. He also wrote that they have no prophet, no scriptures, and no cult yet their main belief is “there is no god but God”. He also remarked that the Sabians did not believe in the Prophet Mohammed, yet the polytheists were known to say of the Prophets and his companions “these are the Sabians” comparing them to them. (129)

    ‘Ahmad ‘ibn Hanbal (d. 855 AD) the ‘Iman of Baghdad wrote:
    The Sabians are a sect of Christianity or Judaism. (130)

    In conclusion the Sabians of the Qur’an as described were of a monotheistic belief system, which resemble Judaism, Christianity and Magianism and were located in Iraq around the areas of Mosul and Kutha. These Sabians also existed before Mohammed and it is claimed that Mohammed was at some time one of the Sabians.

    4. The Arab writers after 832 to 833 AD

    The term Sabians of Harran only appears in the late 9th century. Before this date they were referred to only as Chaldeans or Harrians or Nabataeans. The later Moslem writers describe (after the Caliph al-Mamun THE DATE 832-833 AD) describe these Sabians as people who worship planets, idols, stars, and are located in the city of Harran. The Harrians adopted the name Sabians for two reasons. The first it was the Harrians who wanted to be protected from Islam because the Harrians believed in pagan rituals including HUMAN SACRIFICE. Reason two is that they were active in politics (unlike the Mandaeans) and were known to the courts of Baghdad. Thus they were able to keep portraying the lie of being the Sabians of the Qur’an. Yet the true Sabians were never forgotten. At the same time the Arab writers wrote of the Sabians of Harran they also referred to a second set of Sabians by various names and set them to live in Iraq as monotheist with a book and prophets.

    ‘Ahmad ‘ibn al-Tayyib (d. 899 AD) is quoted in books by the authors al-Maqdisi (d. 950 AD) and ‘Ibn al-Nadim —the source was probably from his book (al-Tayyib) titled Kitab Risalatih fi Wasf Madhaib al-Sabiu’in. Al-Tayyib wrote:

    The Harrians are from the city of Haran and describes their worship of planets and rites. Al-Tayyib gave a lot of information about the Harrians in the theology, gods, fasting, sacrifices, prayers, and festivals. He also mentions a book described to him by al-Kindi (his teacher) used by the Harrians in which there is a section on Hermes and the Unity of God, which Hermes had written for his son. (131)

    ‘Ibn ‘Ishun al-Harrani al-Qadi (d.912 AD) is quoted by al-Mas’udi:
    He used only the name Harrians and describes them as planet worshippers and idols worshippers. (132)

    ‘Abu ‘Ishaq al-Farasi al-‘Istakhri (d. 915- 919 AD) wrote:
    Harran is called as the City of the Sabians and states that there are 17 holy places there. He also mentions a hill dedicated to the prophet Abraham where the Sabians pray. (133)

    ‘Abu Ja’far Muhammad ‘ibn al-Tabari (lived 838-922) is one of the earliest sources for commentary on the Qur’an and the history of Islam.

    In his commentary book on the Qur’an he examines the etymology of the word sabiun and is the first to give the meaning of sabi as someone who takes on a new religion other than his own.

    Yet in his book of the history of Islam he states that the word sabi is a personal name derived from Lamech, the father of Noah and the Sabians took their name from Lemach. Al-Tabari also is the first to use the word sabians for idolaters in general. He also is the first to claim that Budasab (Buddah) called his people to the religion of the Sabians and that Bishtasb and his father Luhrasb, the rulers of Persia after Kaykhusraw embraced the religion of the Sabians until Sami and Zoroaster came to Bishtab with their beliefs. (134)

    ‘Abu Bakr Muhammad ‘ibn Zakariyya al-Radi (d. 923 AD) was a famous chemist and physician is the first to mention there are now two Sabians. He wrote:
    The Sabians of Harran and the kimariyyun. They are different Sabians and the latter opposes the religion of the Harrians. AL- Radi is quoted by al-Masudi from al-Radi’s book titled Al-Mansuri. (135)

    ‘Abu al-Hasan ‘Ali ibn Husayn al-Mas’udi (d. 957 AD) is the first to do an in-depth study of the Sabians.

    He uses the term sabium to include all religious sects from China to Egypt and from Syria to Egypt. He states the Sabians are star- worshippers. He is especially interested in the Sabians of Harran and describes their beliefs, rites, and rituals. He made a visit to Harran in 943 AD and saw the last Harranian temple named mughallitiya in Bab al-Rika. He wrote of the words Plato above the gates to Harran and spoke to a number of learned men in the Harranian religion. He also mentions that the kaldaniyyun who pray to the north and live in lower Iraq between Wasit and Basra. He says these people are opposed to the Harranians. (136)

    Hamzah al-‘Isfahani (d. 961 AD) spoke of the Sabians:
    “Today (10th century AD) their descendants live in the city of Harran and Ruha (modern Urfa). They gave up this name Chaldaeans from the time of the caliph al-Mamun and adopted the name sabiun” (137)

    ‘Ibn al-Nadim (d. 987 AD) wrote in his book Al-Fihrist an account of al-Mamun encounter with the Harranians. This account which was written by ‘Abu Yusuf ‘Isha al-Quatiyi unfortunately no longer exists. ‘Ibn al-Nadim wrote:

    ” Abu Yusuf Isha al-Qatiyi, the Christian, said in his book on the investigation of the school of thought of the Harnaniyun, who are known in our times as the Sabians (al- Sabah) that at the end of his life (days) al-Mamun journeyed through the regions of Mudar, heading towards the Byzantine country for a raid. The people met him and prayed for him. Among them were a group of the Harnaniyun whose mode of dress was wearing of short gowns and who had long hair with side bands (ringlets) like the long hair of Qurrah, the grandfather of Sinan ibn Thabit. Al-Mamum found fault with their dress saying to them, ‘which of the wubject people are you?’ They said ‘we are the Harnaniyah. He said ‘Are you Chrisitnas’ They replied No. Then he said are you Jes. No they said. He inquired are you Magians? They answered no. So he said to them have you a book or prohet . When they stammered in reply he said to them: Then you are unbelievers the slaves of idols, Ashab al Ras, who lived during the days of my father al-Rasid! As far as you are concerned it is legitimate to shed your blood as there is no direct established for you as subjects……….As you do not belong to one or other of these groups now chose one of two alternatives: Either embrace the religion of Islam or else one of those religions which Allah mentioned in His book. Otherwise I will slay you to the last man. I am going to grant you a delay until I return from the journey of mine’…..Then he (the shaykh ) said to them(the Harnaniyun) ‘When al-Mamun returns from his journey say to him ‘We are Sabians (Sabiun) for this is the name of the religion which Allah may his name be exalted mentioned in the Qur’an. Profess this and you shall be saved by this.’ The date when al-Mamun returned through the lands was 8333 AD.” (138)

    Abu Abd Allah Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khawarizmi (d. 980-981 AD) wrote:
    That the Sabian rmembers live in Harran and Iraq. They adopted the name sabium at the time of the caliph al-Mamun. He also states that the real Sabians are a group of Christians. (139)

    ‘Abd al-Qahir al-Baghdadi (d. 1037 AD):
    He divides the Sabians into two groups—the Sabians of Harran and true Sabians of Wasit. (140)

    ‘Abu al-Rayhan Muhammad ‘ibn ‘Ahmad al-Biruni (lived 972 to 1048):
    He also divides the Sabians into two groups. He writes that the first group is the Harranians from the city of Harran and the other group is at Wasit in Sawad al-Iraq. He states that the ones in Iraq are the true Sabians. (141)

    Al-Burni (about 1050- AD) writes:
    “This sect (al-Harraniyyun) is much more known by the name the Sabians than the others (who live in Wasit and vicinity) although they themselves did not adlopt this name before 228 AH under Abbasid rule, solely for the purpose of being reckoned among those from whom the duties of the Dhimm are accepted and towards whom the laws of Dhimma are observed. Before that time they were called heathens, idolaters, and Harrians.” (142)

    ‘Abu Muhammad ‘ibn ‘Ahmad ‘ibn Hazm al-Qurtubi (lived 994 – 1063) states:
    The Sabians are star and idol worshippers. He also includes a new idea that the religion of the Sabians was ancient until a group fabricated stories about planet worship. That is why God sent Mohammed and Islam to change the religion back to the way it was before the fabrication. (143)

    ‘Abu al-Qasim Sa’id ‘ibn Sa’id al-Andalusi (d. 1070 AD):
    He says the Sabians are idol worshippers. But he also mentions there was a former Sabian religion. (144)

    ‘Abu al-Fath Muhammad ‘ibn ‘Abd al-Karim al-Shahrastani (lived from 1086 to1153):
    He writes in his book on comparative religions: there are two Sabians —the ancient first Sabians and the Harranians. (145)

    From here on most of the Arab writers write that the Sabians are from Harran and are idol worshippers. The true Sabians of lower Iraq – Iran area are referred to by a variety of names.

    5. Conclusion

    The Sabians are mention by contemporaries of Mohammed in the terms that Mohammed was a Sabian. Until 832-833 AD there is only one Sabian group named with Sabium referred to as those who immerse in water. These Sabians live in Iraq with a monotheistic religion that resembles Judaism and Christianity. They have prophets and religious scriptures. Mohammed wrote of these Sabians to be included in the Qur’an. It is only after the cut off date832-833 that the term and definition for sabium changes. This is directly influenced by the propaganda of the Harranians who took the name Sabians. After 832-833 AD the definition is given for the word sabium. The word now no longer means to immerse in water but to convert from one religion to another. At the same time the Harranians are now calling themselves Sabians. The Sabians of Harran are defined as idol worshippers and the term Sabians is now being used to include a wide variety of religions. There is still mention of another Sabian sect – the true/ ancient/ first Sabians in Iraq that wash themselves with water. We also know that the word for sabium is taken directly from the Mandaic who changed the root verb from Syraic. In conclusion there can be no doubt that the true –original—and only Sabians (Sabeans) of the Qur’an are the Mandaeans.

    It is a common belief that the word Sabian (Sabaean) comes from Sabi’un (“Convert”), meaning one who ‘converts’ from the worship of many gods to the worship of the “One True God”. Arab lexicographers explain the word sabi as being derived from the verb, which means “arise, apostatize” or “incline, turn away from the (true) religion”. Thus giving the meaning “ those who take on a new religion other than their own” just like Mohammed did. Abu Jafar Muhammad ibn al-Tabari (838-922) is credited with being the first who wrote of this meaning. In his commentary book on the Qu’ran he examines the etymology of the word Sabi’un and is the first to give the meaning of sabi as someone who takes on a new religion other than his own.

    Western scholars do not accept this definition and while they differ on the etymology, they do all agree that the word Sabi’un is not of Arab origin. The most logical theory is that the word used by the Arabs was originally Mandaic (the language of the Mandaeans). In Mandaic the verb “sb” was developed from the Syriac verb. In Mandaic the ayn of the Syriac is changed into the alaf in Mandaic. The Arabs then borrowed the word root “sb” from the Mandaeans.

    The verse about Jews, Christians and Sabeans

    2:62 “Those who believe, and those who followed Jewish law, and [also] Christians and Sabeans, whoever believes in Allah and in the Last Day and does good
    deeds, they shall have their reward before their Lord, and there shall be no fear upon them, nor shall they grieve.” [Al-Baqarah]

    Qadi al-Baydawi said the following in his respected exegesis (tafseer):
    (Bracketed [] comments prefixed by SZ: are from Shaykh Zadeh’s exegetial annnotations on Baydawi’s exegesis. Parenthesised () comments are my own, added where the English translation of the author’s diction does not convey the meaning which is obvious in the original Arabic):
    “‘Those who believe’ i.e. from the ummah of Muhammad. It has been said that the reference here is to the hypocrites, since they (i.e. ‘those who believe’) have been associated with the disbelievers (i.e. the other three groups – Jews, Christians and Sabeans are disbelievers, and thus mention of believers in the same category as them does not make sense, unless we take it as referring to [SZ: those who profess faith by their tongue only] and are therefore believers in the eyes of the world, but not before Allah)
    . . . .
    (he then discusses the etymological roots of the words for ‘Jewish’, ‘Christian’ and ‘Sabean’)
    . . . .
    ‘they shall have their reward before their Lord’, that is, whoever among them was following his religion before it was abrogated. [SZ: he (al-Baydawi) adds the word(s) ‘among them’ in consideration of the possibility that ‘whoever believes’ is a (part of speech in Arabic, signifying a particular type of subject) whose
    (another part of speech, which refers to the predicate referring back to the subject) is ‘they shall have their reward’; and this predicate () along with its subject () comprises the predicate () for the words of The Exalted (meaning), “Those who believe . . .”. A phrasial invariably requires an (something which connects it to its , for otherwise we would have a hanging phrase, which is inadmissible), but none is (explicitly) mentioned, and so it (the ) is implicitly understood to be ‘among them.’]”
    Suheil adds: the above highlights the importance of being fully conversant with the Arabic language before attempting to interpret the Qur’an. In this light, the Prophet has said, “Whoever spoke about the Qur’an according to his (own, unlearned) opinion, or without knowledge, should seek his place in the Fire.”

    From the above extract, we may also infer that there are two possibilities for interpreting the verse:
    i) That there is an implicit , which renders the meaning as follows:
    “Those who merely profess to be believers, as well as those who follow Jewish law, and Christians, and Sabeans – whoever among them now affirms faith in Allah and the Last Day (the hypocrites must do so by adding affirmation of their hearts to their verbal declaration of faith, the others by embracing the completion of revealed religion which was sent with Prophet Muhammad) shall have their reward before their Lord, and there shall be no fear upon them nor shall they grieve.”
    ii) That the verse refers to those Jews, Christians, etc. who faithfully followed the religion revealed to them before it was abrogated. Thus, included in the promise of salvation given by this verse are those Jews who followed the Torah and died prior to the coming of Prophet Jesus, and those Christians who followed the Injeel and did not commit and who died prior to the coming of Prophet Muhammad. This interpretation is supported by that which has been narrated by Ibn Kathir in his exegesis of the verse, which is that the verse was revealed about the former companions of Salman the Persian. Salman told the Prophet that “they used to pray and fast, and believe in you and that you would be coming as a prophet.”
    Those Jews who rejected Jesus are excluded from the glad tidings, as evidenced by the verse (translated):

    61:14 “. . . Jesus, Son of Mary, said to the disciples, ‘Who will be my supporters in the cause of Allah?’ The disciples said, ‘We are supporters of Allah(‘s cause).’ So, a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved.”[Al Saff]

    Thus, those who rejected Jesus became disbelievers, and lost the promise of salvation.

    Similarly, those Jews and Christians who do not accept the message of Prophet Muhammad also become disbelievers, as testified to by the Hadith in Sahih Muslim,
    “There is no Jew, nor any Christian, who hears about me, and then does not believe in me and in that with which I have been sent, except that Allah must enter him into the Fire.”

    It is not permissible to interpret the verse as implying that all Jews, Christians and Sabeans will enter heaven, because:
    a) This contradicts the proofs presented in ii) above (and other similar proofs which I have omitted above), and any interpretation of a verse which contradicts other decisive verses and ahadith is to be rejected.
    b) It is not known with certainty who the Sabeans are.

    Mujahid said: they are a people different from the Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians, and Ibn Kathir has preferred this view.

    Abul-`Aliyah and al-Dahhak said: they are a sect of the People of the Book who read the Zabur.

    Abu Ja`far al-Razi said: I have been informed that they worship the angels, recite the Zabur and pray to a Qiblah.

    Wahb ibn Munabbih said: they are those who recognise Allah on their own, who have no shari`ah by which to act, and who do not commit kufr.

    al-Qurtubi said: they claim that they follow the religion of Noah.

    Some scholars said: they are those who did not receive the message of any prophet.
    Abu Hanifah said: they are part of the People of the Book, who worship faced towards the planets.

    Abu Yusuf and Muhammad ibn al-Hasan said: they worship the planets and believe the planets have an influence on them, and they are therefore disbelievers.

    According to some of the above opinions, the Sabeans are clearly classified as disbelievers, who are not guaranteed salvation under any revelation. The absence of any decisive identification of the Sabeans brings this verse into the category of the – those verses whose exact meaning is ambiguous and should be left to
    Allah.

    A text whose exact meaning is vague or unclear cannot be used to prove a point even in jurisprudence, let alone in the fundamentals of doctrine. According to the self-evident rule of usul, the ambiguous must always be referred back to the decisive, and certainly, there is no dearth of decisive texts on the issue of salvation.

    3: 7 “As for those in whose hearts is a disease, they follow that of it which is ambiguous, seeking and seeking to interpret them whereas none knows their (exact) interpretation except for Allah.” [Aali-`Imran]

    FROM: http://webpages.marshall.edu/~laher1/sabeans.html

    W. St. Clair-Tisdall (W.St. Clair Tisdal, The Sources of Islam, The Orgins of the Koran, pp.236-237) writes that the Sabeans inhabited Syria. They were the followers of Seth and Idris.

    Sabeans fasted for 30 days from night to sunrise, observed Eid and prayed for the dead without prostration. Muhammad simply copied their system of fasting (only change made was fasting from dawn to dusk) and retained the celebration of Eid and the prayer for the dead in exactly the same fashion as the Sabeans.

    Thus the rules on fasting as prescribed in verses 2:183-187 were actually adapted from the Holy Scriptures of the Sabeans. In fact, the Qur’an confirms itself that the system of fasting was a copy-cat from other faith, but remaining coy about which religious scripture Muhammad copied from.

    Here is verse 2:183 that says that the Islamic system of fasting is the mimicry of the other faith (Sabeans, of course):
    2.183 O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint
    The Sabeans possessed a book called ‘Pages of Seth’. They observed 7 prayers a day, 5 of which were at the same hours as chosen by Muhammad.

    They also venerated Ka’ba. Muhammad, most likely, learned about the Holy Scripture of the Sabeans from Bahira, the monk and from Salman, the Persian, because both of them had spent a considerable amount of time in Syria and were well aware about the sources, rituals and the religious doctrine of the Sabeans. Muhammad simply incorporated those in the Qur’an – passing them as Allah’s dictum.
    On the Sabeans, the Dictionary of Islam (Hughes Dictionary of Islam, p.551) writes that they worshipped the stars secretly but openly professed to be Christians.

    Others say that they were of the religion of Sabi, the son of Seth, the son of Adam. Some say they were of the religion of Noah. Their Qiblah was towards the south, from whence the wind blows.
    No doubt, after learning about the Sabeans, Muhammad was profoundly impressed by their religion and hastened to incorporate some of their rituals in Islam. He regarded them as the true believers of Allah. In fact, the Dictionary Islam (ibid) writes that the Arabs used to call Muhammad as Sabi-he who has departed from the religion of the Quraysh. The Qur’an mentions them 3 times in the following verses:

    2.62 Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures) [Hadoo], and the Christians [Nasara] and the Sabians [Sabi’een],- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

    5.69 Those who believe (in the Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures) [Hadoo], and the Sabians [Sabi’oon]and the Christians [Nasara],- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

    22.17 Those who believe (in the Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures) [Hadoo], and the Sabians [Sabi’een], Christians [Nasara], Magians [Majoos] , and Polytheists [Ashrakoo], – Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for Allah is witness of all things.
    Note: that those verses also contain the the Christians and the Magians (Zoroastrians).

    *** In the verses above, the Quran uses the word Hadoo, which actually means ‘those who converted to the religion of the Jews’ from among the indigenous Arabian tribes ***

    MOHAMMEDANS ARE THE MISSING LINK — NEANDERTHAL MAN – SUB-HUMAN.

      • ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF ALLAH.

        ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED THE RAPE OF FEMALE CAPTIVES:

        RAPE JIHAD:
        Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage
        Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.
        Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;
        and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
        So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?
        So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

        REMEMBER:

        ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD
        ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE

        Al-’Azl
        Al-’Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-’Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.
        Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .

        Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135

        Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.
        Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136

        When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end

        Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”

        Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432
        Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”

        THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA

        A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults.
        Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man?
        Do you think that is what she would choose?
        Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old?

        The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old.

        HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH

        Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).

        Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.

        According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.

        Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?

        Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.

        Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).

        The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’

        After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.

        That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers'” (Fatwa No. 31409).

        Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

        AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES

        From the Hadith of Bukhari:

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

        Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

        I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

        From the Hadith of Bukhari:

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        as above (229).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

        Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

        I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

        MUHAMMAD RESERVED BABY AISHA FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE SHE WAS A VIRGIN & HE WANTED A VIRGIN.

        Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 7, book 62, number 17
        Narrated jabir bin ‘abdullah:
        When I got married, Allah’s apostle said to me, “what type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” he said, “why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s apostle said, “why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?”
        Hence, Muhammad’s comments indicate that his reason for marrying Aisha while a young virgin is so that he could fondle and sexually play with her!

        AISHA WAS NOT THE ONLY BABY GIRL MUHAMMAD FANTASIZED ABOUT

        In the classic history, Sirat Rasul Allah (The Life of Muhammad) by Ibn Ishaq, there is an account in which Muhammad expressed a marital interest in a crawling baby. This event seems to have occurred around the time of the battle of of Badr, when he was about 55 years old. He had married Aisha two years earlier, when he was 53 years of age.
        (Suhayli, ii. 79: in the Riwaya of Yunus i. I. Recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lfadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said,
        ‘if she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’
        but he died before she grew up and sufyan b. Al-aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him rizq and lubab… [Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 311]
        Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “if she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Musnad Ahmad, number 25636)

        MUHAMMAD WOULD BATH & FONDLE AISHA

        Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little Aisha and fondle her.
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        The prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).

        MUHAMMAD CONSUMMATED HIS MARRIAGE TO BABY AISHA, WHEN SHE WAS 9

        Sunaan abu Dawud: book 11, number 2161:
        Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
        I and the apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. The clothe).

        MUHAMMAD WOULD SEXUALLY ABUSE HIS WIVES

        Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period.
        Bukhari volume 1, book 6, number 299:
        Narrated ‘Abdur-rahman bin al-Aswad:
        …(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the prophet could.”

        WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS

        Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior:
        “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223]
        Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex.
        According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine, which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls.

        ALLAH PROMOTES PEDOPHILIA

        Quran 65.4 “and those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. They are still immature) their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to him, he will make his matter easy for him.”
        Sura (65:4) lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed period for divorce. It clearly says, Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age. This means that Muslim men were allowed to marry baby girls. This is the eternal word of god. This is an eternal law of Allah. All Muslims must believe in this teaching. Otherwise, they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam.

        ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE

        “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24
        You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like).
        Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4:
        “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

      • Plum Bhai…I have found that most of the media presents just one side of the story and that to presents an exgerrasted version of it as truth. There is a difference between an allegation and a Court proven Crime … I am connected to the Govardhan Peeth (Puri Matham) and hence was closely associated with the Kochi Peetham whose Acharya Srila Jayendra Saraswati was maligned in a worse manner in a murder case. The news channels at that time as well had proclaimed (before the judiciary did) that the the Shankaracharya is indeed a criminal but now after almost NINE years the courts have finally said that there is no case against him…..And this story was considered a minor event and played only two or three times …. This time as well the same thing has happened , there are NO PROOFS except those which are presented before the courts and the authenticity of those proofs will be decided by the courts . So I think its extremely wrong to say anybody is guilty or not guilty before the court’s final decision comes out.

    • Lucky bin Primitive Barbaric Ape, Do you know the difference between Sabians and the Sabbeans? Do your homework before making Buncombe’s, will you, pumpkin brained HIRCISMUS?

  5. Hindus should leave that damn country ASAP ..thousands have already fled . I can understand communal tensions which erupt once a while …. My Intelligent, Muslim Pakistani friends tell me this has been going on from the day when Pakistan was created .

    • Lightman, dude, both Hindus and Muslims have killed each other. So if murder of a Hindu by a Muslim means Islam being evil, murder by a Hindu of a Muslim should also mean Hinduism being demonic.

      • Look at this girl who opened the eyes of the world…she was sexually molested… but was thrown acid on her by the “Bapu’s” goons.

        There are thousands of them…these sex Perverts…the devils!!

        • AISHA, THE BABY BRIDE OF MUHAMMAD:THE MOTHER OF BELIEVERS MURDERED & THROWN DOWN A WELL

          What is the proof that Mu’awiya killed Aisha and her brother Abdul-Rahman as well as Saad bin Abi-Waqqas?

          ( Section : Misdeed )

          Question :

          May peace and the mercy of Allah be upon you.

          Eminent Sheikh Yasser al-Habib (may Allah protect him).

          We have a couple of questions, most of them are related to issues concerning historical incidents and important historical figures.

          What are the historical evidences we can rely upon to confirm that Mu’awiya killed Aisha, and her brother, and Abu Bakr, and Saad, son of Abi-Waqqas?

          Pray for us. Thank you in advance.

          Answer :

          In His Name, splendid be the praise of Him. May peace and the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.

          May Allah increase our rewards and your rewards in the remembrance of the tragedy of the martyr Hussain, his household and companions (may Allah’s blessings be upon them). May Allah make us and you among those who demand their revenge along with our Leader, the Master of the Command (may Allah’s blessings be upon him, and may Allah hasten his noble reappearance).

          In a previous reply we discussed how the relationship between Aisha and Mu’awiya (may the curse of Allah be upon them both) was at unrest during its last days, as well as the relationship between Mu’awiya and Aisha’s brother, Abdul-Rahman. The cause of this unrest was Mu’awiya’s desire to appoint his son, Yazeed (may Allah curse him), as his successor, which was disliked by Aisha and Abdul-Rahman and hence they opposed him. This strengthens the possibility that Mu’awiya ordered the execution of them so that he may pass the leadership to his son.

          Among those who stated that Mu’awiya killed Aisha as well as killed several others; was Al-A’mash (i.e. Sulayman, son of Mahran), a reliable and trustworthy person according to us and to the Bakris alike. Al-Nibati narrates the following of him: «When he (Mu’awiya) entered Kufa, he said: “I did not kill you in order to make you perform prayer and fasting, because I know you were performing this! Rather I killed you so that I may rule over you!” Upon then, Al-A’mash said: “Have you seen a man with less modesty than him? He has killed seventy thousand people, among them are Ammar, and Khuzayma, and Hijr, and Amr, son of al-Hamaq, and Mohammad, son of Abi-Bakr, and Aws, and the son of Sawhan, and the son of Al-Tayyehan, and Aisha, and the son of Hassan, and then he says this!?”» [1]

          Some might criticize the reliability of this narration for the fact that Al-A’mash wasn’t alive during Mu’awiya’s era, and that he was born the same year in which Abi-Abdillah al-Hussain (may Allah’s blessings be upon him) was martyred. However, this criticism is rejected, because his purpose in this narration wasn’t to testify his witnessing of the incidents, but rather he only meant to mention historical incidents, and hence this narration of his was only to inform others of Mu’awiya’s acts.

          As for the question concerning how Mu’awiya actualled performed the killing; Al-Nibati narrates of the author of Al-Masalit that Mu’awiya: «…He was sitting on the pulpit and commanding people to pay allegiance to Yazeed. Upon then Aisha said: “Did the two Sheikhs (here she meant Abu Bakr and Omar) call for the pledge of allegiance for their sons?” He said: “No.” She said: “Then who do you follow (as your example)?” Then he became embarrased, so he prepared a hole for her in which she fell and died.»

          According to the narration of the son of Abil-‘Aass, he said: «”Which spot do you wish to be buried in?” She said: “I had decided to be buried next to the Messenger of Allah, however I invented new things (to the religion) after him, so bury me in Al-Baqee.” It is also reported that Mu’awiya used to threaten people to make them pay their allegiance to Yazeed. This news reached Aisha, so she entered upon him after her two uncles while riding a donkey, and it urinated and laid it droppings on his carpet. Then he said: “I can not stand the words of this obscene woman!” Then he arranged for her end. Abdullah, son of Zubayr, used to mock him with the following words:

          “The donkey went with the mother of Amr,
          She didn’t return, nor did the donkey return!”» [2]

          It was done in the 58th year of the noble Hijrah. Sheikh al-Nemazi says: «In year 58, Mu’awiya toppled Aisha into the well.» [3]

          As for her brother, Abdul-Rahman, his death was due to unknown circumstances in a place called “Al-Habashi”, and it took place after he left Medina for Mecca in response to Marwan, son of Hakam, who called him to pay allegiance to Yazeed. It is probable that Mu’awiya sent someone to kill him and bury him alive. The first one who doubted that he died a natural death; was his sister Aisha. Al-Hakem and Ibn Asakir both narrated that she saw a woman go into prostration and then die. Upon then she said: «”In this woman, I find a lesson for Abdul-Rahman, son of Abi-Bakr; he rested in one of his resting places, and when they went to wake him up, they found him dead.” Then Aisha suspected that this was done to him out of evil, and that it was done quickly (to finish him off), and that he was buried alive. She saw that he was a lesson for her. Then, whatever was in her of these suspections went away.» [4]

          However, even though doubt was removed from Aisha – or at least that’s what the narration says – doubt is not removed from us, because we have already been informed of Mu’awiya’s character; a tyrant specialized in political assassinations!

          As for Saad, son of Abi-Waqqas, the Bakri sources state that Mu’awiya assassinated him with poison just like how Imam Hassan (may Allah’s blessings be upon him) was killed. Among these narrations is the following that is narrated by Al-Maqdasi on the authority of Sha’ba, who said: «Saad and Hassan, son of Ali, died on one (and the same) day. He said: It is reported that Mu’awiya poisoned them.» [5] The following is narrated by Abul-Faraj al-Esfahani: «Mu’awiya poisoned him (i.e. Imam Hassan) when he wanted to make Yazeed the successor after him, and he poisoned Saad, son of Abi-Waqqas, as well. They both died on days close to each other.» [6]

          May Allah grant you and us knowledge and understanding. Peace. The 5th of the month of Muharram al-Haram, year 1429.

        • Nobody knows who those persons were …Recently a news story was shown that Shobha Bhutra the SP of surat was threatened over the phone by Bapu’s Goons….later on the 16th of Feb when the guy was caught he said that he has no connection with Bapu or his organization . Many Newspapers printed this but Why no big TV channels except ETV Rajasthan covered it? I cannot understand…Media should be fair to all and ALWAYS …ALWAYS present BOTH SIDES of the story.

          • .refer to my past comments on Tantric yoga…but maybe this site will help you know why Yoga gurus are sooo sexual perverts : Why does yoga produce so many philanderers?
            http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/28/health/nutrition/yoga-fans-sexual-flames

            If this Bholananji, the Speaker in the video is a Yoga teacher and after the claim of 100 cures and ailments achieved by Yoga, then why is he suffering from the ulcers??

            “Gurus and sex scandals are nothing new; Bikam Choudhury-the accused rapist is not the first and probably will not be the last yoga guru embroiled in a sex scandal. Indeed, he joins a long list of others including Swami Muktananda, Swami Satchidananda, Amit Desai, and of course, John Friend, whose recent scandal made headlines last year and has left the future of Anusara yoga in question.” Elle.com

            Nithyananda estbalished an Ashram at Bidadi, near Bangalore on Jan 1, 2003 called Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam, with the stated mission of reviving Vedic tradition and sharing his enlightenment experience. The ashram offers programs on meditation, yoga and healing which are often conducted by Nithyananda.
            In December 2010, India Today reported that police planned to conduct an investigation into the wealth of Nithyananda and the ashram.He was alleged to have accumulated ₹1400 million (~ US$ 23 million) in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Nithyananda’s younger brother manages his finances and those of the ashrams outside India as well as the Nithyananda Imports and Exports business. In June 2012, India Today reported that Nithyananda “heads 20 foreign trusts and nine Indian trusts that call themselves charitable institutions and pay no taxes”. It described his website, “nithyananda.org”, as “a full-fledged e-commerce site”

            Sun TV scandal[edit]
            A video that apparently showed Nithyananda engaging in sexual acts with women, allegedly Tamil film actress Ranjitha, was broadcast on the Tamil television channel Sun News on 2 March 2010.

            Accusations by Arathi Rao
            Arathi Rao, a former follower of Nithyananda, gave a detailed account of her five-year experience with the guru. She alleged that Nithyananda repeatedly raped her and threatened her with dire consequences if she revealed it to anybody.

            Mahamandelshwar and Madhurai Adheenam controversies
            In June 2012, a Hindu organization in Tamil Nadu, filed a petition in Madurai court against Nithyanada alleging misuse of Madhurai Adheenam mutt for practicing immoral activities and for serving holy water laced with drugs.

            Again ashrams…similar tactics came to the aid of the sexual perverts. These Babas are
            fake…….they have goondas to do their dirty work of silencing the victims.

            Regarding my attitude you may judge as you please!

          • Again I refuse to comment on anything before the courts prove a crime has been committed, and this is not just for Hindu related cases but for all allegations made against anyone.

            I think its not correct to mix Tantra with traditional Yoga…Tantra is not a Vedic Way and hence its practices cannot be considered ” Yoga” . In the west people do refer to it as ” Tantric Yoga” but that is a misnomer as Tantrik Practices as poles apart from the teachings of Patanjali Yogsutra..

            Bholanand is not into tantra He taught Hatha Yoga for various physical and mental problems and just because he taught Hath Yoga does not mean that he is knows Pranayam , and Ayurveda as well . Hath Yoga is helpful in making the body strong and does help with certain diseases particularly lifestyle diseases .

            I would also think twice before calling Bikram Chaudhry a Yoga Teacher as he too has zero understanding of the Yogsutra and has come up with his own copyrighted Yoga System..God only knows what strangeness he teaches..

            ..I find this entire thing funny because Bhai you are the first to say that its the individuals fault and not Islam’s and when it comes to something non islamic you let go of your views easily …Lets say that even if people like Bikram and Nityananda are criminals How come its the fault of the Yogic Teachings of the Vedic Masters ??? ..It would be a similar thing to saying that Islam produces Hardliners and terrorists when you say yoga produces criminals. .


          • Dear Plum…In response to your generalist comment ” these babas are fake” I would request you to view this documentary me and my friends created a couple of years back .

          • Please watch it on YT as for some reason the resolution got messed up on this site.Just click on the YouTube logo on the bottom right of the video. Thanks

          • YO LIGHTMAN,

            You have fallen for the Mohammedan trick of switching the subject:

            THE SUBJECT IS:

            Hindu temple set on fire in Pakistan over blasphemy

            Pakistan means ‘land of the pure’ or ‘pure land’.

            NOW THAT’S A SICK JOKE!

            ANIMAL LOVING MUSLIMS: ISLAM & ZOOPHILIA

            Pakistan has banned content on more than a dozen websites because of “offensive” and “blasphemous” material, while they themselves rank No. 1 for certain sex-related search terms, including “child sex,” “rape sex,” “animal sex,” “camel sex,” “donkey sex,” “dog sex,” and “horse sex”.[1]

            IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD

            AFGHANISTAN

            In a society where homosexuals and adulterers are stoned to death for “sexual immorality” you would expect a similar outcome for someone caught having sex with an animal. Surprisingly this is not the case.
            An Afghan soldier was detained by police after being caught having sex with a donkey in southeastern Afghanistan, a police officer told AFP.
            The soldier was discovered with the donkey in an abandoned house in a small village of Gardez, the capital of Paktia province, last week, a local police officer said.
            “He was caught in the act by a small boy who immediately told police about what he had seen and police arrested him in action,” the Gardez-based officer told AFP, requesting anonymity.
            The soldier claimed he committed the act because he did not have enough money to get married.
            After being caught with the donkey in a village about 100km south of the capital Kabul, he was jailed for four days and then released without charge.
            According to tradition in south and southeastern Afghanistan, a suitor must pay around $US5,000 ($A6,800) to the parents of the girl he wishes to marry.
            Soldier caught with his pants down
            The Age, March 16, 2004
            Could it be that the soldier was released without charge because there is nothing in the Qur’an that prohibits bestiality?

            PALESTINE

            In 1923, the Director of Health in the British Mandate government in Palestine sent out a questionnaire to his Principal Medical and Health Officers in the country, asking them to report on various sexual practices and attitudes among the Muslim Arab population.
            As a result, the British discovered that the Muslim Arabs engaged in bestiality.
            The Nablus officer finds sodomy and “similar vices” “not uncommon in some of the towns but less so in the villages where…bestiality is by no mean unknown” and “immorality…rather lightly regarded” in those villages that are closer to the larger towns. He comments, “in the villages there seems to be curiously little feeling against bestiality which I have heard admitted in a very airy way on more than one occasion. Sodomy is considered disgraceful but not I think more so than ordinary immorality” (III).

            PAKISTAN

            In Southern Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Balochistan, sex with animals is a common practice among rural youths and considered a rite of passage into adulthood.
            In southern Punjab, much of NWFP, Sindh and Balochistan sodomy and bestiality are common among rural youths. In fact, he caught two boys trying to rape a goat in the vicinity of the mazar of Hazrat Sultan Bahu. The punishment meted out to them was 10 blows with a chhittar (shoe) each on their butts. They protested however that in many rural areas having sex with an animal was considered a rite of passage on the way to becoming full members of the male society!

            DONKEY KILLED AFTER BEING RAPED

            In June 2011, a male who was caught having sex with another man’s donkey was fined Rs 50,000. This fine was not imposed for having sex with an animal, but for committing adultery. The raped donkey was labelled a ‘kari’ (an adultress) and eventually honor killed by its owner.

            Incredible though it may sound, a donkey was declared ‘Kari’ and shot dead here in a remote area on Monday. The Jirga imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the alleged ‘Karo’.
            The reports said that in Village Ghahi Khan Jatoi, a villager Ghazi Khan alias Malang shot dead his donkey on being ‘Kari’ with Sikandar Ali alias Deedo. He attempted to kill Sikander too but
