In the ongoing quest to reveal what Islam says about itself, I want to review two additional Medina surahs before returning to the Hadith. The 48th opens admitting Muhammad was flawed. Qur'an 48:1 "Verily We have granted you (Muhammad) a splendid Victory that Allah may forgive you your sins and faults of the past and those to come." Muslims claim Muhammad was perfect, for he had to be better than Yahshua. But unfortunately, it's hard to imagine a less perfect human than the one described in the Islamic scriptures. If this man were alive today, he would be public enemy number one.
They say that confession is good for the soul. In that light, I'd like to give Muhammad the opportunity to explain how he achieved this "victory" of which Allah has spoken and explain what motivated him: Bukhari:V4B52N220 "Allah's Apostle said, 'I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror. While I was sleeping the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.'"
After touting his "heavenly armies" and promising rewards to those who surrender, Muhammad, speaking for Allah, goes on the attack. Qur'an 48:6 "And He may punish the Hypocrites who imagine an evil opinion, or have evil thoughts about Allah. It is against them that the wheel of misfortune will turn, a disgraceful torment: the Wrath of Allah is on them: He has cursed them, and He has prepared Hell for them." How is it not possible to think evil thoughts about Allah? He describes himself: plotting against men, leading men astray, deceiving them, shackling them, dragging them to hell, using their bodies as kindling, roasting men on a spit, feeding them molten pitch, pouring boiling water over them? Allah confesses to being a terrorist, to murder, to thievery, and to selling children into slavery. His character rivals only Muhammad's in depravity.
Yet Muhammad and Allah believe that this is "good news," also known as "the gospel." Listen: Qur'an 48:8 "We have truly sent you (O Muhammad) as a witness, as a bringer of Good News, and as a Warner: In order that you (O men) may believe in Allah and His Messenger, that you may assist him and honor him, and celebrate His praise morning and evening." Muslims have been ordered to honor Muhammad.
The next verse should help freethinking men and women separate themselves from the prophet's deception. Qur'an 48:10 "Verily those who swear allegiance to you (Muhammad), indeed swear their allegiance to Allah." It is another confession. Muhammad was Allah. He created Allah's persona. He not only attributed his words to Allah, he used his "god" to advance his personal agenda. This whole charade has been played out to make everyone submissive to an insane megalomaniac so that he could lay claim to what he craved. If Allah's name were erased in each of the hundreds of places throughout the Qur'an that Muslims are ordered to believe in, submit to, and obey Allah and His Apostle, nothing would change.
By way of added proof, I'd like to bring your attention to something we will cover again later in the chronology. Bukhari:V5B59N733 "While Umar was talking to the people, Abu Bakr said, 'Sit down, Umar.' But he refused. So the people came to Abu Bakr and left Umar. Bakr said, 'To proceed, if you used to worship Muhammad, then Muhammad is dead, but if anyone of you used to worship Allah, then Allah is alive and shall never die.'" Abu Bakr confirmed that Muslims "used to worship Muhammad." Not out of respect, mind you. They worshiped Muhammad for the same reasons they would come to worship Allah. They feared him. They knew good Muslims would kill them the moment they stopped. Islam's first historian paints the drama this way: Tabari IX:187 "Bakr saw that Umar would not listen. He went forward. 'I swear by the Lord of the Ka'aba that Muhammad is gone. Those people who formerly worshipped Muhammad must know that the deity you worshiped is dead. Those who formerly worshipped Allah must know that Allah is still alive and immortal.'" In death, Muhammad had given birth to the god he had created in life. They became separate and distinct for the first time.
But that is not to say Muhammad didn't have help creating Islam. By his own admission he was demon possessed. His behavior and the testimony of his contemporaries confirmed it. He met with Lucifer, albeit disguised as Gabriel. While most of the Qur'an is nothing more than Muhammad whining, threatening, and seducing, some of it was inspired. Muhammad used Allah's Black Stone to satiate his cravings. Satan used it to deceive and damn mankind. Together they were the demonic trinity.
A harsh assessment? What other options do we have? Swimming in this sea of putrid immorality and grotesque criminality, confronted with such an onslaught of deceit, hatred, and violence, how can any other conclusion be drawn? There is no way to make seventy-five terrorist raids and the murder and enslavement of tens of thousands look godly. Piracy isn't good, nor is pedophilia, incest, or rape. Torturing people for money is bad. Armed with the evidence - the Islamic scripture - the verdict is undeniable. Islam was a demonic scam. The religion served a man and a beast, enabling them to lord over mankind, making beasts of men.
The perverted founder of the perverse doctrine that forever enslaved the free and peace-loving Bedouins of Arabia, proclaimed: Qur'an 48:11 "The desert Arabs who lagged behind will say to you (Muhammad): 'We were engaged in (looking after) our flocks and our families.' They say with their tongues what is not in their hearts." Qur'an 48:12 "Nay, you thought that the Messenger and the Believers would never return to their families ; this seemed pleasing in your hearts, and you conceived an evil thought, for you are a people lost (in wickedness), worthless folk doomed to perish. If any believe not in Allah and His Messenger, We have prepared for them a Blazing Fire!" While it's good to be consistent, being consistently bad isn't good. This is the twentieth time we have been told that Muslims who lead productive lives, who go about their business, who take care of their families, but who are not willing to leave their homes to fight on Muhammad's orders are "lost," "wicked," "worthless," "doomed," and "hell-bound."
Satan, masquerading as the capricious Black Stone of the Ka'aba, shows his true colors: Qur'an 48:14 "To Allah belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth: He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He pleases." Only Lucifer would be pleased to punish. "Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Returning to piracy and plunder, the Devil's Advocate preaches: Qur'an 48:15 "Those who lagged behind (will say), when you marched forth to capture booty (in war): 'Permit us to follow you.' They wish to change Allah's decree to say: 'You will not march with us: Allah has declared (this) beforehand.' Then they will say, 'Nay, you are jealous and envy us.' Nay, but little do they understand." I understand: "There is no booty for bad, peace-loving Muslims. Booty is only for good Muslims - the jihad terrorists," so sayeth the Lord. And before we leave this divine pearl, notice the way it began. Muslims "marched forth to capture booty in war." They did no go out to share the faith. Muhammad's militants were mercenaries, not missionaries.
Qur'an 48:16 "Say (Muhammad) to the wandering desert Arabs who lagged behind : 'You shall be invited to fight against a people given to vehement war with mighty prowess. You shall fight them until they surrender and submit. If you obey, Allah will grant you a reward, but if you turn back, as you did before, He will punish you with a grievous torture." This may be the clearest definition yet of "good" and "bad" Muslims and their relative status. Bad Muslims are peaceful; they are against fighting. They will go to hell. Good Muslims are obedient jihad warriors, fighting until all infidels surrender, submitting to Islam. They are rewarded with booty and Allah's brothel.
Oft-Forgiving and Most-Merciful, Allah grants the blind and the lame a "Get Out of Jihad Free" card. Since one must be blind to follow this lame religion, I'm surprised more Muslims don't take advantage. Qur'an 48:17 "There is no blame for the blind, nor is it a sin for the lame, nor on one ill if he joins not in the fighting. But he that obeys Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens of Bliss. He who retreats, (Allah) will punish him with a painful doom." Somebody had a one-track mind. Obey me and fight or go to hell. The Qur'an is as repetitive and irritating as a broken record.
Qur'an 48:18 "Allah's Good Pleasure was on the Believers when they swore allegiance to you (Muhammad) under the Tree: He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down His Sakinah to them; and He rewarded them with a speedy Victory." No he didn't The swearing of allegiance under the tree preceded the capitulation at Hudaybiyah. There was no speedy victory - only dismay and anguish. The natives were restless - wanting to kill anything that moved. No wonder team Islam can't get their Bible stories right. They can't even remember their own sorry history.
Reconfirming that Islam was all about money, the Qur'an's god makes armed robbery "easy:" Qur'an 48:19 "He rewarded them with abundant spoils that they will capture. Allah is Mighty, Wise . Allah has promised you much booty that you shall take, and He has made this easy for you. He has restrained the hands of men from you; that it may be a sign for the Believers that He may guide you to a Straight Path . And other benefits which you have not yet obtained." As we shall soon see, the only one who got booty from the victory over Mecca was Muhammad. He inherited his heart's desire - the Ka'aba Inc. All other Muslims lost ground, as future spoils were divided inequitably, unfairly favoring the new converts.
I would be remiss if I didn't highlight the confession. Allah promised the Muslims "abundant spoils" and "much booty." He did not promise them "many souls." Islam wasn't about salvation or even conversion. It was about conquest and money. This is a political mantra, not a religious dogma.
In Islam: war and terror were all in a day's work, standard operating procedure. Qur'an 48:22 "If the unbelieving infidels fight against you, they will retreat. (Such has been) the practice (approved) of Allah in the past: no change will you find in the ways of Allah."
This next verse was "handed down" to excuse Muhammad's cowardice and capitulation at Hudaybiyah. It was also the Islamic god's way of letting his troops know that peace treaties could be used to lure an enemy into a false sense of security so that Muslims might conquer them more readily. Qur'an 48:24 "It is He Who restrained their hands from you and your hands from them in the valley of Mecca, after that He gave you the victory over them ."
Allah says the Meccans deserved their fate because they delayed Muhammad from stealing what he coveted: a founder's share of the Ka'aba Inc. Qur'an 48:25 "They are the ones who denied Revelation and hindered you from the Sacred Mosque ." The verse goes on to explain that the reason for not trouncing the Meccans right then and there was that some believers were hiding in their huts and Allah didn't want them hurt. "Had there not been believing men and women whom you did not know that you would have trampled down and on whose account a crime would have accrued to you without knowledge, (Allah would have allowed you to force your way). If they had not been there, We would have punished the unbelievers with a grievous torture." The moral of the story is: it's good to trample down infidels so long as you are careful not to injure Muslims in the process.
Muhammad's Muslim militants had worked themselves into a lather over not being able to fight the merchants of Mecca and take a spoil. But since that didn't sound religious, Allah claimed: Qur'an 48:26 "While the Unbelievers got up in heat and cant - the zealotry of the Age of Ignorance - Allah sent down His Sakinah to his Messenger and to the Believers, and made them stick close to the command of self-restraint."
The Islamic terrorists were certain that they were going to conquer Mecca because Muhammad had told them he had envisioned it in his dreams. Qur'an 48:27 "Truly did Allah fulfill the vision for His Messenger: you shall enter the Sacred Mosque, if Allah wills, with minds secure, heads shaved, hair cut short, and without fear. For He knew what you knew not, and He granted, besides this, a speedy victory." This would have been a prophecy if it had actually been written prior to the attack on Mecca, not a dozen years later, and if the surah didn't contain post occupation passages.
Then sharing the Devil's agenda: Qur'an 48:28 "It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam), that he may make it superior to every other religion, exalting it over them." While Muhammad was wrong, he saw Judeo-Christianity as a competitive "religion," and his had to be better, to be "exalted over every other religion." This mirrors the true meaning of Allahu Akbar. But how can that be if Islam was supposed to be a confirmation of the Torah and Gospels, as Allah has so often claimed? Or is this really just the serpent's way of competing with Yahweh?
The verse continues to protest: "Allah is a sufficient Witness. Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. Those who are with him are severe with Infidel unbelievers, merciful amongst themselves. You will see them bow and prostrate themselves, seeking Allah's acceptance. On their foreheads are marks, the traces of their prostration." Rub their faces in it, will you? It's so Muhammad to gloat about how he damned so many, forcing them bow to the Devil. And while that's unforgivable, how can a religion that claims its hallmark is tolerance, say: "be severe with unbelievers?"
And I'm afraid there is something far more sinister lurking here. Lucifer removed his veil when he said that his mark would be on their foreheads and that his followers would be known by their prostrations . Speaking of how Lucifer will use Islam in the last days, John wrote this in the 13th chapter of Revelation: "I saw another therion (poisonous and destructive beast) coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb and spoke as a serpent . He exercised power and caused mankind to prokuneo (to prostrate , kissing like a dog) themselves to the first therion (poisonous beast) as protos (the greatest ) whose death stroke was adored (jihad killers are adored martyrs). He makes pur (fire or lightning ) come from the sky in the presence of men. And he planao ( deceives , leads astray, or seduces ) mankind by the means of the signs which he had power to do ; saying to the people that they should build a statue to him, showing that he had survived the stroke of the sword . The therion (poisonous and destructive animal) made the idol come to life, and it said that whoever did not prostrate themselves to the image of the therion should be slain . And he requires all, small and great, rich and poor, eleutheros (exempt from obligation ) and doulos (submissive ), to receive a charagma (scratch or etching, a mark of servitude) on their right hand or on their forehead . No man may buy or sell, except those who have the charagma of the onoma (authority or character) of the therion (poisonous and destructive animal), or the number of his onoma . Let him with understanding calculate the arithmos (number or reckoning) of the therion (beast): for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666." Rather than invent a new dogma to oppress mankind, the AntiChrist and his False Prophet will use Islam.
While the last Qur'an verse spoke of the "marks on their foreheads, the traces of their prostration," Muslims were also known by their right hand. Bukhari:V8B76N545 "Allah's Apostle, said, 'All who are called to account on the Day of Doom will be ruined.' Aisha said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Hasn't Allah said: "For him who will be given his record in his right hand, he surely will receive an easy reckoning?"' (Qur'an 84:7) The Apostle said, "That (Verse) means only the presentation of accounts, but anybody whose account is questioned will be punished.'" A "reckoning" is an "accounting" so Aisha was right. Muhammad had contradicted Allah and confirmed John's prophecy.
Ever desirous of being accepted as a real prophet, our counterfeit proclaimer ended the 28th verse and the 48th surah by errantly suggesting that marks and prostrations are godly identifiers in the Bible. "This likeness is in the Taurat ; and their similitude in the Injeel ." Yes, the Scripture alludes to prostrations and marks, but they are Satanic references, not godly. Just as Christ's "Love your enemy" is the antithesis of "be severe with unbelievers." And the distinction is important. Since the Gospels say one thing and the Qur'an says another, they couldn't have been inspired by the same spirit. Loving and afflicting are opposite paths; they cannot both lead to paradise. One path leads in an entirely different direction.
