Maududi says: "Such were the disturbing conditions under which the 108th surah was sent down. The Quraysh were angry with the Prophet. His Companions became helpless, poor people who were being persecuted and tyrannized." There is something about Islam that corrodes the mind. The behavior Maududi is railing against is the very legacy of Islam. Every Islamic nation is a tyranny, their people are poor, and non-Muslims are persecuted. For good measure, they even persecute their own, especially women. It is astonishing that an Islamic scholar can write these words without seeing himself in the mirror.
"Furthermore," Maududi continues, "he was bereaved by the death of two sons, one after the other, whereat his nearest relatives, clan, and neighbors were rejoicing and uttering such words as were disheartening and disturbing for a noble person who had treated even his enemies most kindly." Kindly? Never in the course of human events has a "religious" man treated his own clan, his detractors, his kin, so hatefully. Muhammad's spirit tongue-lashed the Meccans in the Qur'an and condemned them to hell. And he would beat the hell out of them by raiding their means of sustenance and conquering their town. Further, Ishaq lists three sons, not two, all of whom died in infancy twenty years earlier.
In his concluding line, Maududi confirms Islam's demonic nature: "At this Allah just in one sentence of this brief surah gave Muhammad the good news, better news than ever given to any man: his opponents will be cut off from their root and not he." The good news is that the prophet's family and neighbors will be "cut off." The "Gospel" of Islam isn't about salvation; it's about damnation.
In this verse, Muhammad claimed his prize - the fountain of perpetual wealth - Kausar. Unfortunately, it flowed from the fountain of deceit - Allah's Ka'aba. Qur'an 108:1 "To you have We granted Kausar, the fountain of abundance. Therefore to your Lord turn in Prayer and Sacrifice." Before we leave the Bank of Kausar I want to bring your attention to the word "therefore." A bargain has been struck. Prayer and sacrifice are services for payments rendered. Muhammad is telling us something we should already know: "I'm doing it for the money."
The following Tradition is yet another confession from the world's best known religious profiteer: Tabari VI:95 "Abu Talib said to Muhammad, 'Nephew, how is it that your tribe is complaining about you and claiming that you are reviling their gods and saying this, that, and the other.' The Allah's Apostle said, 'Uncle, I want them to utter one saying. If they say it, the Arabs will submit to them and the non-Arabs will pay the jizyah tax.'" The "jizyah" is an exorbitant tax collected by Muslims from Christians and Jews to this very day. It's called the "protection tax" and it works just like the one imposed by the mafia. If you pay it, they let you live. If you don't you die.
Just in case you think this Hadith is too incriminating to be part of the Islamic lore, too money grubbing to be prophetic, consider these words from Islam's god. After telling Muslims that "Allah will enrich you out of His bounty," Qur'an 9:29 says: "Fight against those People of the Book who do not follow what Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad) acknowledge as the true religion (Islam), nor accept Our law, until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission, and feel themselves subdued, being brought low." A second translation reads: "pay the tax in acknowledgment of our superiority and their state of subjection." Islam was a money-making scheme - a Profitable Prophet Plan.
Qur'an 108:3 "For he who insults you (Muhammad) will be cut off." Compare these words with those of Christ. Unjustly rather than justifiably criticized, physically tortured rather than verbally teased, Christ prayed: "Forgive them, for they know not what they do." But the dark spirit of Islam cuts the insulters down - sending them off to burn in hell.
