I want Muslims to know what the Sira has to say about Muhammad. I want them to know their prophet as he is presented in the Islamic Hadith. I want them to understand the Qur'an when it's placed in the context of Muhammad's life.
I state my intentions scores of times in Prophet of Doom starting with the "Letter to the Reader" and the "Prologue." I wish to expose Islam for its deception, for its intolerance, and for the violence and terror it inspires. I want Muslims to know what the Islamic Hadith says about Muhammad so that they might be free of Islam.
There are only two reasons 1.2 billion people "believe in" Muhammad. First, not to believe in Muhammad in an Islamic nation is a death sentence. Muhammad and Allah told Muslims to kill anyone who rejects their religion. Second, very few Muslims have ever read Ishaq's Sira. Most Muslims have never read Tabari's History. Most Muslims have never reordered the Qur'an chronologically and set it in the context of Muhammad's life. If they had done any of these three things, they would no longer be Muslims. Instead, most Muslims allow themselves to be duped, literally indoctrinated and then used, by cleric and king.
The character, words, and deeds attributed to Muhammad in the Islamic Hadith Collections are pure evil. According to the only sources of information we have regarding this man and the formation of Islam, Muhammad and the first Muslims were pirates and mercenaries, they were thieves and rapists, They were terrorists. They financed Islam via the slave trade. Muhammad and Allah admitted that their vows and oaths were meaningless. They encouraged deceit and deception. To "believe in" a man and god who brag about terrorizing people, enslaving people, robbing people, and deceiving people, is not wise.
Excerpts from Prophet of Doom
From "Letter To The Reader":
The critics of this work will claim that Prophet of Doom is offensive, racist, hatemongering, intolerant, and unnecessarily violent. I agree - but I didn't write those parts. They came directly from Islam's scriptures. If you don't like what Muhammad and Allah said, don't blame me. I'm just the messenger.
Others will say that I cherry-picked the worst of Islam to render an unfair verdict. They will charge that I took the Islamic scriptures out of context to smear Muhammad and Allah. But none of that is true. Over the course of these pages, I quote from almost every surah in the Qur'an - many are presented in their entirety. But more than that, I put each verse in the context of Muhammad's life, quoting vociferously from the Sunnah as recorded by Bukhari, Muslim, Ishaq, and Tabari - Islam's earliest and more trusted sources. I even arrange all of this material chronologically, from creation to terror.
From the "Prologue":
Criticizing a religion is something that makes people squeamish, especially in the paranoid culture of political correctness. Christians say that we are to love, not judge. Jews, after millennia of persecution, are terrified of even the perception of intolerance. Secular humanists, in deference to multiculturalism and the peace process, have sacrificed truth on the altar of their political agenda. So why upset everyone?
Why? Because they will continue to kill us if we don't expose them.
Before revealing what the Qur'an and Hadith have to say about Muhammad and Islam, I'd like to clear up a few inevitable misconceptions. First, on Muslims - I love you in spite of your beliefs and deeds. I would like nothing more than to free you from Islam. I agree with Renan, the famed scholar, who, after dedicating himself to understanding Islamic scripture, wrote: "Muslims were the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain others in the practice of this religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him."
Second, on Christians, you - we - are responsible for the awful mess the world is in. We have turned a personal relationship with our Creator into an emasculated religion, confused and aimless. In the name of that religion, we have perpetrated inhumanities. Today, for fear of appearing hateful we are apparently willing to let a billion people live in virtual slavery, perishing in ignorance and poverty. Tolerance of evil is not a Christian virtue. We are called to be discerning.
Third, on Jews - I love you in spite of yourselves. Fourteen centuries ago your forefathers sold Bible stories to Muhammad and then mocked him when he goofed them up. By doing so you manufactured your own enemy. Now, you are a divided people, unsure whether to appease or fight the terror you helped inspire. As the world's most lettered people, I fear that you understand less than you know. I pray that you come to trust your God before it is too late.
Fourth, on secular humanists, liberals, and agnostics - you are guilty of the very things you denounce in others. History is as condemning of man separating himself from God as it is of man-made religions establishing themselves as intermediaries to God. The last hundred years have been especially indicting; atheistic doctrines have annihilated more people than all religions combined. Truth is not relative. Yet in today's media, secular humanists judiciously edit under the guise of enlightenment. While irritating, this practice is particularly lethal as it relates to Islam. The errant recasting of the religion as peaceful, the reshaping of jihad into a spiritual struggle, the impression you convey that Islam is tolerant and that the terrorists have corrupted their religion, is wrong. Thousands have died in the wake of your illusions.
Fifth, on Islam itself - without deceit and sword, Islam would have been stillborn. An infinitesimal fraction of the one billion people subservient to Islam today actually chose their fate. In Mecca, fourteen hundred years ago, after a decade of preaching, as few as fifty men chose to follow Muhammad. But that all changed in Medina. There, according to the Qur'an and Hadith, Muhammad became a political tyrant, a terrorist, and a thief. His willingness to lead seventy-five armed raids against defenseless civilians swelled his ranks as swiftly as the spoils of "war" filled his pockets.
Equipped with booty stolen from others, Muhammad and his followers conquered and then plundered their neighbors, starting with Arabia. The only choice they offered their victims was "your money or your life." Once subjected to their will, Muslims compelled submission under penalty of death. Islam is, and has always been, a doctrine devoid of choice. It prospers at the business end of a bloody sword. Soon you will see why.
The vast preponderance of today's Muslims do not know their prophet or their religion very well. Theirs is a life of ignorance, despair, tyranny, and mind- numbing ritual. They are kept in the dark, purposely deceived, for the benefit of cleric and king. And there is no incentive for them to learn. Exposed to the truth, they would reject Islam, a decision that could cost them their lives. The Qur'an itself confirms this startling reality. In the 5th surah, the final revelation chronologically, Allah ordered Muslims "not to question the Qur'an," for those who did, he said, "discarded their religion." In that light, we should feel good about freeing Muslims from the oppressiveness of Islam. For by freeing them we will free ourselves from the scourge of Islamic terror.
From the "Prologue":
Why are we so afraid to speak the truth? Here's a clue: on top of one of my press releases, a South Palm Beach radio host wrote this note in her prettiest handwriting. "I wouldn't promote your version of Islam even if I was an evangelical Christian on my death bed." Those who are paid to keep us informed have put their popularity and financial well being ahead of saving lives. And while this is symptomatic of why we are ignorant, I don't have a "version" of Islam. The only Islam I know is the one found in the Qur'an, the one preached by the imams and sheiks, the one promoted in the Islamic media, the one presented by the first Muslim scholars Ibn Ishaq and al-Tabari, the one recorded in the Hadith Collections of al-Bukhari and Muslim, the one Muhammad himself lived and taught, the one terrorists like Osama bin Laden practice. It isn't my version of Islam; it's theirs.
How do you suppose Islam could be any different than the religion lived by its sole prophet, Muhammad? How could it differ from the doctrine espoused by its deity, Allah? If Islam's prophet and god got Islam wrong - who, pray tell, has it right? I have no interest in interpreting Islam. I simply want to expose it. I'm a reporter, doing the job the media should have done. And I have a singular motivation. I want to save Muslims from Islam and thereby save Christians and Jews from Muslims.
Yes, I know. Religions are supposed to be good. Most religious prophets are fine fellows, not terrorists, so all of this is a little hard to swallow. But one was a terrorist. Muhammad assassinated more journalists than any modern militant. He financed his religion entirely through piracy and the slave trade. This prophet was a genocidal maniac. Worse still, his "god" condoned terrorism, piracy, plunder, racism, genocide, deception, and assassination. Allah ordered his followers to kill us - and they did. The evidence screams out from the pages of the Qur'an and Hadith Collections of al-Tabari, Ibn Ishaq, al-Bukhari, and Muslim.
The case against Islam is a lay-down hand. The paper trail, their scripture, points directly to Islam's lone prophet. The blood evidence, both fresh and ancient, leads directly to Muhammad. We even have confessions - thousands of them. In the Qur'an, Allah commands Muslims to "wipe the infidels out to the last." Allah isn't the least bit ambiguous. In the Hadith, Muhammad says, "Kill any Jew who falls under your control. Kill them, for he who kills them will get a great reward." Today's terrorists are simply following their religion as it was originally conceived. Confronted with the evidence, one has to commit intellectual suicide to avoid seeing Islam as complicit in terror.
The truth is obvious: the terrorists haven't corrupted their religion. Islam has corrupted them. The murderers are following their prophet's example. And while most Muslims aren't terrorists, all the really good ones are. They haven't corrupted Islam any more than the S.S. corrupted Nazism or the Kamikazes corrupted the culture of Imperial Japan. We have been fighting a war against the symptoms, not the source.
The Nation of Islam has been at war with everyone, including itself, for 1,400 years. You'll see why Muslims celebrate their "victories," no matter how many innocents perish. You'll learn why their state-controlled media promotes terror. You'll know why their state-controlled schools teach hate. It will become evident why imams encourage martyrdom and jihad. And if that were not bad enough, consider this: our oil money pays for it all.
From the "Prologue":
Recognizing that most people don't have the will, time, or means to invest 10,000 hours into the study of Islam, I have done the heavy lifting for you. I have distilled Islam's five earliest books into one. And rather than taking them out of context, I have organized them chronologically and woven them together. You will see Muhammad, Allah, and Islam as they really are. So that there would be no confusion, I printed their words in bold and my comments in standard type. You are free to read their words alone, interpreting them yourself. Or you can see them as I do.
So that you might appreciate the consequence of ignoring Islam, I have included sections comparing the Islamic scriptures to Hitler's Mein Kampf . Formed as a religion to inspire martyrdom, Nazism caused the worst war in human history. Yet apart from time and place, Islam and Nazism are indistinguishable. Quotations from Mein Kampf are italicized so that they might be distinguished from the Islamic scriptures.
As you read Prophet of Doom you will begin to question the validity of the Islamic sources. The Hadith and Qur'an are so errant historically, logically, and scientifically, you'll think that I am quoting from sources hostile to Islam rather than from its most revered scriptures. When you come to that point, I encourage you to visit the "Source Material" appendix. It is a scholarly review of the works that comprise Islam, their inspiration, history, and authority. This analysis will be particularly helpful for Muslims, since their imams have lied to them about the nature of their scriptures.
Most rational men and women will conclude that a god who is principally vengeful, forgetful, contradictory, and irrational might not be a god after all. But why should we care? It's a free world and Muslims are entitled to their beliefs. What's more, Christians at times have behaved no better. Who are we to cast stones? The fact is, Muslims are killing us, and they will continue to kill us until we have the good sense to understand the doctrine that drives them to such behavior. Besides, the Muslim world isn't free. It has never been free.
Okay, so Muslims aren't free. So what? Why are their problems our problems? Because we are free. We have the opportunity and responsibility to diagnose this disease before it consumes our life, liberty, and prosperity as it has theirs. So fasten your seatbelt. It's time to expose Islam.
From the "Epilogue":
While some may venture outside the confines of Political Correctness, most will not. America will indoctrinate another generation of godless, and thus amoral, thoughtless, and directionless people, as has Europe before us. Our culture and economy will suffer. We will be terrorized. And then, like 1930's Germany, we will long for a dictator who will pull us out of the morass - only to find that he will push us into the abyss. After announcing that we have achieved peace in our time, the world will erupt in global war. And all because media darlings and political actors were afraid to step outside the circle. But I have done my part. I have left you without excuse.
Moving on, I'd like to speak to Christians - actually I'd like to wake you up. Speaking of this generation of believers, Yahweh said, "You are neither hot nor cold so I spew you out of my mouth." We've lost our passion, our courage, our faith. Most Christians don't know God's name, much less what He is like or what He wants. And that is why I believe the world is in such a mess. We're in a position to make a difference, but we've been sleeping on the job.
History tell us that bad overwhelms good until good cares. Islam will continue to poison its faithful and deceive its foes until the planet is embroiled in World War. That is what it was born to do. And while we could stop it, we won't All of us could make the right choice; we could discard that which is false and rely on that which is true. But not enough of us are going to make the right call to make a difference.
So why bother? Why did I write, and why did you read, Prophet of Doom ? Because while we collectively will continue to embrace the lie, deny the truth, and march like lemmings toward our doom, all will not jump into the pit. There is salvation, a bridge to paradise, but it's single file. As Christians, it's our job to point as many people as possible in the right direction. And often that means showing them that the direction they are currently going is wrong.
If you have chosen Yahweh, if you know Yahshua personally, you have been given your marching orders. The Third Commandments proclaims: "You shall not nasa (advance or accept) the shem (character or mark) of Yahweh (I Am - the Creator's name) your elohiym (deity) in shav (an evil, destructive, deceptive, or false manner), for Yahweh will not hold him naqah (clean, innocent, or blameless) who nasa (advances or accepts) His shem (character or mark) shav (evilly, destructively, deceptively, or falsely)." You have been instructed to confront Islam, to save Muslims and non-Muslims from it.
Excerpts from the "Feedback Pages":
When I typed in Islamic scriptures for a religion class ...., one of the search result was yours. It caught my eye and when it opened I was not surprised. I saw the same uneducated naive view I see everywhere.
I would seriously check my sources before putting something like that on the net. And taking things out of the context is really not fair either. The definition of Islam is simple: Peace and Submission. Your website is defacing a name of a great religion. But leave it to ignorant and dumb people like the creators of this website to mess it up. Any true educated open minded individual will tell you, that Islam is a great religion. Recall the crusades it was the Christians who attacked the muslims. I am not surprised there is a second crusade going on as I write this email. Islam was and still is the fastest growing religion because people see the truth and beauty in the religion. And as for the prophet Muhammad (Subhana Watallah) he was a great peaceful guy. In war time he did not slaughter innocent kids and women. He did not destroy many children hospitals and he did not torture the disabled, as some are doing now. This webpage is extremely unfair and false. I would recommend moving this page. (WW)
What causes you to call one of the most contextual and comprehensive presentations of the five earliest Islamic sources an "uneducated naive view" with "things out of context?" The only view I have provided is the one chronicled in the Qur'an and by the first Islamic scholars: Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim. What would cause you to criticize me, saying "I would seriously check my sources before putting something like that on the net," when the sole sources for Prophet of Doom are the earliest and most authentic Islamic sources? Would you rather rely on the opinion of an imam than on the actual message contained in the oldest Hadith and Qur'an
I know the answer to these questions. I only wish you and every Muslim on the planet did. The truth would set you free from the deceptive opinions upon which you cling. I understand that it's shocking to see Muhammad, Allah, the Qur'an, Hadith, and Islam presented in such a harsh light. The very idea that you are trusting your soul to a man who, according to his own scriptures, wasn't deserving of your trust, causes you to lash out at me in denial rather than investigate the evidence for yourself.
While I don't yet know you, I'm willing share what I've discovered in the Hadith and Qur'an only because I love you and Yahweh loves you. We want you to know the truth. Once you know it, what you do with it is up to you.
The overwhelming majority of Muslims have never bothered to read the only book written about Muhammad within 200 years of his death--the Sira or Biography by Ibn Ishaq. An infinitesimal percentage of Muslims have read their oldest uncensored chronological collection of Hadith in Tabari's History. They haven't come to grips with the universally accepted topical arrangement of Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim. Moreover, they have never studied the Qur'an in chronological order or set it into the context of the man's life who revealed it. That's astonishing because it means you don't know your prophet or why and how he created Islam. Worse, it means that anyone with an opinion can poison your mind because you lack the evidence needed to refute them. Your soul is worth more than that. Please take responsibility for it. I care more for you than you seem to care for yourself.
If you care enough about your soul and about the nature of truth, prophets, and God to learn and think for yourself, here's what you need to do. First, I want you to check the Islamic archives for religious material. What you'll discover is that everyone recognizes that the oldest surviving record of Muhammad and the formation of Islam was written by Ibn Ishaq. You'll learn that Ishaq's original manuscript has been lost but that Hisham retained much of what he wrote. Unfortunately, according to Hisham, he censored Ishaq a hundred years later because he recognized that much of what was known about Muhammad was unflattering. Sadly, you'll discover that most all of what Hisham left is unflattering too.
Then you'll discover that Tabari had a copy of Ishaq's Sira or Sirat and faithfully reported everything. Therefore, if you want to know how Muhammad saw himself, if you want to know what he did and what he said, you'll need to read Ishaq's and Tabari's chronological collection of Hadith. That is the ONLY way to know him and to understand the formation of Islam--to see it in context and from the viewpoint of the only early sources. Not a single word was written about Muhammad, Mecca, Allah, or Islam by any secular historian or by any Muslim scholar within Islam's first century. All that we know about Muhammad and the creation of the Qur'an is either in Ishaq's Sira, derived from Ishaq's Sira, or deduced from hearsay--oral tradition--over two hundred years removed from Muhammad's death.
So, you can buy those books and read them yourself or you can read them in the combined format of Prophet of Doom. But whatever you do, don't trust this man until you come to know him.
Your next line: "The definition of Islam is simple: Peace and Submission," is accurate so far as it goes. The consonants form the root of the word "peace" in Arabic and when voweled the word means "submission."
Yet judging something by the root of its word is very dangerous. If we were to do that with the root of the word for Jews, for example, we'd prove that Islam's principal claim is a hoax. In Hebrew the word is "Yahudi" which means that they are followers of Yahweh. Since Allah, as it is used in the Qur'an is one of the two personal names of Muhammad's Ilah, Allah cannot be Yahweh. Thus the Qur'an's reliance on the Hebrew Biblical characters confirms Islam's prophet plagiarized his scriptures from the Talmud--a fact that is independently undeniable.
What is important, isn't the root of the word Islam, but instead, Islam's roots. To understand them, you're going to have to read Ishaq's Sira, Tabari's History, Bukhari's Hadith and then reorder the Qur'an chronologically and set it into the context of Muhammad's life. You won't like what you learn but if you have the wisdom and courage to learn it, the reward will be eternal. This is why I put Prophet of Doom online. It's why I offer it to you free. It does what you need to do.
Your next line is understandable from your perspective, but not true when you know the truth. You said, "Your website is defacing a name of a great religion. But leave it to ignorant and dumb people like the creators of this website to mess it up. Any true educated open minded individual will tell you, that Islam is a great religion." If you were to care as much for you as I care for you, you'd read Prophet of Doom and discover that I didn't deface the name of a great religion. I didn't have to. Muhammad did it for me.
Calling me "dumb" because you are repulsed by the message of the earliest Islamic scholars and deceived by the opinions of today's clerics, is a good thing in a way. It suggests that you are repulsed by terrorism, rape, pedophilia, deceit, assassinations, mass murder, piracy and the slave trade. If you see these things as bad, there is still hope for you. When you discover that Muhammad did all of these things, you'll stop trusting him.
I have dealt with your next excuse in countless emails. You can read them if you wish to be informed or you can see Islam as good because its best behavior taken out of context and revised was better than the worst behavior of others--also taken out of context and revised. But if that's the best you can do, you're wasting your time and your life. You said: "Recall the crusades it was the Christians who attacked the muslims. I am not surprised there is a second crusade going on as I write this email."
Your next line draws erroneous conclusions simply because you are unwilling to think out the real reasons behind Islam's growth. You wrote: "Islam was and still is the fastest growing religion because people see the truth and beauty in the religion." To come to that conclusion you must dismiss the fact that Islam was spread with the sword, not scriptures. You must also ignore the facts that most all Islamic nations kill anyone who chooses not to be a Muslim and that there is a population explosion in the Islamic world. In fact, it is a crime in the Islamic word to criticize Muhammad or Islam and thus no one can rationally think there way to it.
The reason I'm so desirous of freeing you from the deceptions that currently poison your mind and damn your soul is your following statement: "And as for the prophet Muhammad (Subhana Watallah) he was a great peaceful guy. In war time he did not slaughter innocent kids and women. He did not destroy many children hospitals and he did not torture the disabled, as some are doing now." You simply don't know your prophet. He was only peaceful twice. He was peaceful before men in Medina pledged to fight for him as he had no way to implement his threat to slaughter his own family and neighbors. And he was peaceful when he lied to the Meccans and signed a treaty not to terrorize them any more. He reneged on that treaty the following year and conquered Mecca with a 10,000 men under arms. Why would you trust a man whose own scriptures say he was willing to lie to achieve his will?
As for killing women and children, you need to read the Hadith. Your view is completely in conflict with what your own scriptures say. If you have to revise Muhammad for him to be worthy, he's not.
"This webpage is extremely unfair and false. I would recommend moving this page." And I would advise reading it. That way you'll know the that the only way for it to be "unfair and false" is for Muhammad, Allah, Islam, the Hadith and the Qur'an to be "extremely unfair and false."
It's your choice Wafiullah. You live in "submission" to Muhammad's deception. Or you can read, learn, think, and free yourself from it. I believe that your soul, your life, your mind, is worthy of knowing God--the real God. He loves you, as do I. We want nothing more than for you to know Him. It would be my pleasure to introduce you to him.
Your friend, Craig
Thank you for emailing me back, I actually appreciate it, though nothing made sense in it. For starters I am not Muslim. I am a professor of religious studies and a PhD in Philosophy. The tricks your using with your writing is quite impressive. Obviously the masses (which are the asses) would fall for everything you say. You use quotations and elegant writing. But real educated people like myself and many more out there will not fall for it "my friend." It is funny I actually thought there was some intelligence to you, until you sent me this email. It made me realize you are one of those door to door Jahova Witness or Morman missionary, that really irritates the mass majority. Well here is what you can do: Continue pursuing your bigotry and your plan to convert everyone into your religion. The religion of peace and good. Christianity and Judaism are both great religions and are religions of the book, but usually a religion is usually defaced by people like you. Saying the Qu'ran is a big fat lie contradicts your very own beliefs. Many of the stories of the Qu'ran are identical to those in the Torah and the bible. And one more thing it was the jewish people who tried to murder both Jesus and Muhammad. Thank You and May Allah Save You From Whatever Your Smoking. (WW)
You're a professor with a PhD in Philosophy and you write: "though nothing made sense in it." Sure, anything is possible.
You wrote: "The tricks your [you're or you are] using with your writing is [are] quite impressive." But you didn't list a single "trick." If you're so smart, and I'm so tricky, why didn't you provide an impressive array of errors as proof? If you or anyone can demonstrate that there are older and better surviving Islamic sources than the Qur'an, Ishaq, Tabari, Muslim, and Bukhari, and then show how the aforementioned sources could have gotten everything wrong about Muhammad and the formation of Islam, I'll pull the book and write a retraction.
Let me tell you that your book is the most disgusting and hateful thing I have ever read. Why are you Christians and Jews like that? We, Muslims, never insult your Prophets or your religion. Why don't you people leave us alone? It is people like you who are spreading hate and violence all over the world. Listen, do humanity a favor, shut your foul mouth! (BH)
Thank you for demonstrating what Islam does to men. Your note is equal parts ignorant and hateful.
Since the core of Prophet of Doom is nothing more than a presentation of what Muhammad did and said as recorded by the first Muslims, by calling it "disgusting and hateful" you are labeling your Sira, Hadith, Sunnah, and Qur'an "disgusting and hateful." While that's true, it isn't in your interest to make such a claim.
When you said, "We, Muslims, never insult your Prophets or your religion," you demonstrated your ignorance of your scriptures and ours. No book ever written is as hateful and insulting of Christians and Jews as the Qur'an.
Read what Muhammad and Allah had to say about Christians and Jews in the "Muhammad's Own Words" Appendix. Further, the corruption of "our prophets" in the Qur'an, Sira, and Hadith collections is "insulting, disgusting and hateful." Muhammad remade the Hebrew patriarchs and prophets in his own image, corrupting them so that his own immoral, criminal, and violent behavior would appear prophetic by comparison.
As if living on a different planet, you ask and say: "Why don't you people leave us alone? It is people like you who are spreading hate and violence all over the world." What part of the Islamic suicide bombings or 9/11 don't you understand? What part of Allah's orders to "Wipe the infidels out to the last" don't you get? You must have missed the part of the Qur'an in which Allah defines "infidels" as "Christians." (Qur'an 5:72) You must have read right past Qur'an 5:33--the most horrific lines ever attributed to god. I don't suppose you've ever thought about the 3rd surah, the 4th, the 5th, the 8th, the 9th, the 33red, or the 59th. To summarize them as "hateful and violent" would be too kind.
But as with most Muslims, Muhammad included, you are ever ready to thrust your own weaknesses on your accusers. It is Islam that spreads hate and violence all over the world. For 1400 years a river of blood has flowed from the land's Muhammad corrupted. Muhammad's Sira, Sunnah, and Qur'an are why.
Simply stated, Islamic Jihadists will continue to murder peaceful Muslim hypocrites, Christians, and Jews by the thousands and millions until the fraud that Muhammad perpetrated is exposed. According to your scriptures, your prophet and your god were terrorists. They spread hate and violence around the world. To free the world from this scourge, I am committed to exposing the world to the author of the plague he called Islam.
Listen, do yourself and humanity a favor, read Prophet of Doom or at least the five books upon which it was based. The truth will set you free. (Craig)
After 1,400 years, you have accused God's last Prophet and Messenger to have a hidden satanic agenda. Well, I think that this book reflects your truly Satanic Kabbalist Pharisaic Masonic Anti-Christ agenda, not Muhammad's.
You have thrown lies, false translations, out-of-context quotations, etc. to create your fraudulent argument against Muhammad (pbwh).
You are only truly fooling yourself. (AJ)
Congratulations. In three sentences you proved that you are deceived, ill-informed, irrational, and deceitful.
First, Muhammad was Allah's Messenger. The Arabic word used throughout the Qur'an for "God" is "Ilah." Allah was the personal name of Muhammad's god.
Second, Allah's spirit reflected Muhammad's character and Satan's nature. So if you are looking for a Satanic agenda, you'll find it in Islam. Muhammad himself, claimed to have been demon possessed. According to the Qur'an, the eye witnesses, those who knew him better than anyone today, agreed. Muhammad's family and neighbors routinely claimed that he was possessed. What's more, Muhammad even claims to have spoken for Satan--something the Qur'an confirms.
Yahweh, the God of the Bible, is my God. Allah and Yahweh are opposites as are their scriptures and the paths to them.
Third, Muhammad wasn't a prophet because he didn't issue a single prophecy that has come true. The fact that he performed no miracles and issued no prophecies would cause the rational thinker to question his validity of his revelation.
Fourth, the fact that Muhammad falsely claimed that his Qur'an confirmed the Torah when its message differs on every page, proves that he was a liar--a deceitful spirit. The fact that Muhammad's Qur'anic revelations justified genocide against the Jews of Medina and then justified stealing their homes, property, women and children further demonstrates that the Torah and Qur'an could not have been inspired by the same God.
Fifth, nothing says "agenda" better than the Sira--Ishaq's biography of Muhammad that was comprised of the earliest Hadith. If you had read the Sira you would have known that Muhammad was a motivated by sex, power and money. According to the Islamic Hadith, Muhammad was a pirate, not a prophet. According to the Sira, which was the only book written about Muhammad within 200 years of his death, this "prophet" was a pedophile, a rapist, an assassin, a terrorist, a slave trader, a thief, and a war-mongering warlord. You don't find many of those in religious circles.
Sixth, as for Christ, I work for him. Muhammad worked against him. Muhammad and his imaginary friend Allah, disclaimed Christ's sacrifice on the cross, yet it was the centerpiece of his mission. Since Muslims see sacrifice like most pagans--as a way to please their god, rather than as an atone for sin--they don't understand the significance. You ought to read the essays in the Resources section of the site under Cain. Moreover, Muhammad's Qur'an denies the deity of Christ and thus it rejects the central core of the Gospels which it claims to confirm. Those things would make Muhammad the model for the Anti-Christ.
Seventh, I have had a half dozen Muslims call the translations used in Prophet of Doom "false" as if there were a "non-false" translation. The fact is the Qur'an is so poorly written, scholars have to guess as to what Muhammad was trying to say. The most esteemed scholar studying the oldest fragments says: "One out of every five Qur'an passages is unintelligible and cannot be understood, much less translated." There are missing words and meaningless words. In fact, most of the important words and names come from rabbinic Hebrew and Christian Syriac, and thus cannot be translated without expertise in languages other than Arabic. But the Qur'an's biggest liability is that it is chaotic. There is no context or chronology--thus making it a garbled mess. There are dozens of Qur'an translations because no one really knows what it says. To appreciate the actual nature of the Qur'an, you out to read the scholarly assessment in the Appendix of Prophet of Doom called "Islam's Dark Past."
Each time I have been challenged on this topic I have copied the specific translations from Ahmed Ali, Pikthal, Noble by Muhsin Khan, Yusuf Ali, or Shakir. I have demonstrated how the translations used in Prophet of Doom are nothing more than a blending of these translations with an assist from Ishaq and Tabari. No one has ever shown that a single translation was thus "false" as you assert. If you want to try, be my guest. But start at the beginning and use the Qur'an passages that are revealed in each of Prophet of Doom's 25 chapters.
Since most critics of Prophet of Doom, don't read before they attack, I have copied introductory statements in the book which say: "When quoting from the Qur'an and Hadith, I have elected to use a blended translation. No language transfers perfectly - one word to another. Five of my twelve translations of the Qur'an were combined to create the most accurate conveyance of the message possible. However, the writing quality is so poor, the proofreaders of this manuscript suggested that I help Allah and Muhammad out by cleaning up their grammar, punctuation, and verbosity. So for clarity and readability, I have trimmed their unruly word patterns and meaningless repetitions, being careful not to alter the meaning or message of any passage. Insertions within parenthesis (like this) were added by the Arabic translators to fill in missing words or to clarify the text. Insertions within brackets [like this] represent my observations."
Eighth, your "out-of-context quotations" line is especially lame. There is only four types of context and I observe all four in Prophet of Doom. First, and most important there is the context of chronology. The Qur'an lacks this so I provide it via the Sira. I have ordered the surahs in the order they were revealed. Second, there is the context of place, people, circumstance, and time. The Qur'an lacks this too, so I provide it via the Islamic Hadith. This is especially revealing as the Qur'an set into the context of Muhammad's life is disgusting. Third, there is the minor context of adjacency. The Qur'an jumps from topic to topic without intelligent transitions within surahs and between surahs so it lacks this form of context as well. But I elected to present most every verse of most every surah in Prophet of Doom, so I have maintained the adjacency context, too. And fourth, there is the context of topic. Not surprisingly, the Qur'an lacks this form of context as well. It is not ordered by subject. So, to help folks understand what Muhammad had to say about topics like Jihad, terrorism, deception, intolerance, thievery, murder, science, Christians, and Jews, I created a topical appendix at the end of the book and arranged the most important 2000 Muhammad and Allah quotes by subject.
Ninth, your charge that "You have thrown lies, false translations, out-of-context quotations, etc. to create your fraudulent argument against Muhammad," is untrue in every way, including the last. I use the Qur'an and the Hadith collections in Ishaq's Sira, Tabari's History, and Bukhari's topical collection as an argument against Muhammad. This "prophet" hangs himself.
And that brings us to my final point. If you have to say things that are untrue to make Islam and Muhammad appear believable, can they be believable? If one can destroy the credibility of Muhammad, Allah, and Islam by quoting from the Qur'an and Hadith, can they be credible? If Muhammad as depicted in the Hadith mirrors the nature of Allah depicted in his Qur'an, and if both are shown doing and approving despicable, deceitful, immoral, criminal, hateful, sadistic, and violent things without rational justification, are they not despicable, deceitful, immoral, criminal, hateful, sadistic, and violent?
Open your eyes. Read the Qur'an set in the context of the Hadith. Learn the truth. Think.
Well Craig, You have demonstrated what blind hatred for Muslims and Islam does to man! (BH)
You can write, so I assume you can read. Yet you didn't bother. The Letter to the Reader ends with these words: "One last thought before you head down this perilous path. I pray that when you have reached the journey's end, you will share my heart for the plight of Muslims. I want nothing more than to free them from Islam, and in so doing, free us from the terror their doctrine inspires." The Prologue says: "Before revealing what the Qur'an and Hadith have to say about Muhammad and Islam, I'd like to clear up a few inevitable misconceptions. First, on Muslims - I love you in spite of your beliefs and deeds. I would like nothing more than to free you from Islam. I agree with Renan, the famed scholar, who, after dedicating himself to understanding Islamic scripture, wrote: "Muslims were the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain others in the practice of this religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him." (Craig)
If you are talking about violence and bloodshed, the bloodshed in Islamic histroy is like a single drop of rain in the ocean of the bloodshed in the western history. (BH)
What a feeble argument. You're saying: My "religion" is good because it has inspired less murderous behavior than "western history." If it were true, it would be a lousy defense. Since it's not, it's an indictment.
First, let's look at your history. For the first 3000 years of recorded history there is no evidence that the peace and freedom loving peoples who inhabited Arabia ever attacked or conquered anyone. Then Muhammad invents Islam. He leads 75 terrorist raids against Arabs and Jews in ten years. He plunders, taxes, murders, or enslaves everyone within camel ride of Medina--including his own family. Upon his death, all of Arabia is plunged into war. Abu Bakr was miffed that Arabs stopped paying the forced tax so he came at them with the sword of Islam and started the War of Compulsion. It sealed your fate, raping you of your freedoms. Over the next ten years Muslims inspired by Muhammad's terrorist dogma violently attacked, conquered, plundered, and taxed the Persians, the Byzantines, the Syrians, and the Egyptians. Then to prove that Islam couldn't even live with itself, Muslims fought a second civil war within two decades of it's birth. Over the course of the next century, Islamic crusaders brutalized peoples from India to Spain. Never have so few done so much harm to so many. To call it a single drop of blood is unconscionable.
The term "western history" isn't definable so it's hard to address. But let me see if I can shed some light on the "ocean of bloodshed." Mein Kampf, a religious dogma that is indistinguishable apart from time and place from Islam, led to the deaths of 55,000,000 people. With common enemies (Christians and Jews), a common leader, and a common spirit, Muslims sided with Hitler. There were even Muslim SS units--which shouldn't be surprising since the SS was Satanic.
Politically and socially a communist nation is virtually indistinguishable from an Islamic nation. That is why most every Islamic nation was aligned with the USSR and why so many Muslim nations were led by socialists.
Communism, which like Islam is based upon "submit and obey" and "he who fears will mind" led to the murder of 10,000,000 Southeast Asians, 20,000,000 Russians, and 40,000,000 Chinese. Most recently, the world's most "Islamic" of nations, the Sudan, has butchered 3,000,000 Christians in genocidal rage. There is no difference between worshiping no god or a false one. Man apart from Yahweh behaves badly. (Craig)
And let me remind you that I am well educated in Islamic studies and have done some research regarding the Bilbe as well. You are manipulating the Koranic verses and quoting the Hadith out of text. (BH)
The charge that I am "manipulating Qur'anic verses and quoting the Hadith out of text" coming from a man who says "I am well educated in Islamic studies" demonstrates that dogma rather than reason prevails in minds polluted by Islam. One cannot quote the topical Hadith from Bukhari and Muslim out of context and Prophet of Doom steadfastly presents the chronological Hadith in Ishaq and Tabari in their original historical and Qur'anic context. Further, my only "manipulation" of the Qur'an is to rearrange it in the order it was revealed and to set it into the context of Muhammad's life as presented in the Islamic Hadith. You'd be hard pressed to find a rational scholar who would claim that putting verses in the context of chronology, place, circumstance, and time isn't the best way to understand them. Frankly, the only reason Islam continues to deceive so many is that too few have bothered to do what I have done for you. (Craig)
As for 9/11, I am still not convinced that it was carried out by Muslims, for example, if the US can warn the Saudis of impeding bombings in the Saudi Arabia just a few days before it is carried out, how come they could not prevent 9/11 from happening?! (BH)
Islam is amazing. It's ability to poison men's minds is beyond belief. You've got 19 fundamentalist Muslims on four planes screaming out Allahu Akbar, and demonstrating the behavior modeled by Muhammad and ordered in the Qur'an, and you don't think it was carried out by Muslims.
But alas, there is a reason behind the madness. Allah is the best of schemers. He has made you mad. (Craig)
If the president of USA can publicly and shamelessly lie about Iraq and WMD and get away with it, then ordinary people like you can easily fabricate lies about the whole Muslim world. (BH)
We found something we agree on. The president of the USA has publicly and shamelessly lied about Iraq and WMD. Much of the reason I write is so he won't get away with it. But, that is where our common ground ends. The "lies" you claim I "fabricate" are nothing more than a contextual presentation of the five earliest books about Muhammad, his god Allah, his scripture recital, and the formation of Islam. They are indeed "lies" but they are not mine--they are yours.
As for your statement concerning "the whole Muslim world," you again demonstrate that you have not read what you are attacking. Prophet of Doom starts with Muhammad's hilarious presentation of creation and ends with Muhammad's death. It is focused on the cause of the problem, not its symptoms. (Craig)
If you truly believe that you are right then I challenge you to arrange a public debate regarding your book with Muslim Scholar Dr Zaker Naik. (BH)
Have your scholar call any nationally syndicated radio or television program. If he can convince them to hold a debate, I'm pleased to engage him in conversation. As for you, I'd suggest you take personal responsibility for your own soul and start thinking for yourself. (Craig)
You make me laugh. I am not going to say anything more in reply to your baseless accusations. (BH)
Like every other Muslim, you simply give up when confronted with factual evidence that refutes your claims. It's amazing so many people are willing to trust, to fight and die for something they have to lie for to believe in.
You made the following baseless accusation: "If you are talking about violence and bloodshed, the bloodshed in Islamic history is like a single drop of rain in the ocean of the bloodshed in the western history." I responded by recapping the first century of Islamic history--the very time Muslims should have been most in tune with their prophet and god. My sources were all historical and Islamic--the Hadith and Qur'an. Yet you ignored it. Any rational, thinking person who was genuinely interested in the truth would have dealt with what I said. For if it's true, and it is, then Islam is rotten to the core. If it is not true, then why can't you refute what I shared?
Here it is again. Maybe you can do better this time. I said: What a feeble argument. You're saying: My religion is good because it has inspired less murderous behavior than "western history." If it were true, it would be a lousy defense. Since it's not, it's an indictment.
Let's look at your history. For the first 3000 years of recorded history there is no evidence that the peaceful and freedom loving peoples who inhabited Arabia ever attacked or conquered anyone. Then Muhammad invents Islam. He leads 75 terrorist raids against Arabs and Jews in ten years. He plunders, taxes, murders, or enslaves everyone within camel ride of Medina -- including his own family. Upon his death, all of Arabia is plunged into war. Abu Bakr was miffed that Arabs stopped paying the forced tax so he came at them with the sword of Islam and started the War of Compulsion.
It sealed your fate, raping you of your freedoms. Over the next ten years Muslims inspired by Muhammad's terrorist dogma violently attacked, conquered, plundered, and taxed the Persians, the Byzantines, the Syrians, and the Egyptians. Then to prove that Islam couldn't even live with itself, Muslims fought a second civil war within two decades of it's birth. Over the course of the next century, Islamic crusaders brutalized peoples from India to Spain. Never have so few done so much harm to so many. To call it a single drop of blood is unconscionable.
If that recap of the first century of Islamic history is baseless, tell me why. And if you are wise enough to take this challenge, do the research yourself, quote chapter and verse from the earliest sources, and refrain from stating your opinions or those of others. In other words, substantiate all you say as I have done in Prophet of Doom.
In your first email you said: "And let me remind you that I am well educated in Islamic studies and have done some research regarding the Bible as well. You are manipulating the Koranic verses and quoting the Hadith out of text." I refuted both accusations. Yet you were unable or unwilling to defend your position in light of my response
The reasons are clear. You aren't well versed in the Bible, the Qur'an or the Hadith. That is why you are so easily deceived. If you knew these sources as well as I do you, and if you had read the book you were attacking, you wouldn't have made the allegation. Moreover, your position is defenseless as I explained: "The charge that I am manipulating Qur'anic verses and quoting the Hadith out of text coming from a man (excuse me person) who says 'I am well educated in Islamic studies' demonstrates that dogma rather than reason prevails in minds polluted by Islam. One cannot quote the topical Hadith from Bukhari and Muslim out of context and Prophet of Doom steadfastly presents the chronological Hadith in Ishaq and Tabari in their original historical and Qur'anic context. Further, my only "manipulation" of the Qur'an is to rearrange it in the order it was revealed and to set it into the context of Muhammad's life as presented in the Islamic Hadith. You'd be hard pressed to find a rational scholar who would claim that putting verses in the context of chronology, place, circumstance, and time isn't the best way to understand them. Frankly, the only reason Islam continues to deceive so many is that too few have bothered to do what I have done for you."
This proves that your allegation was not true, yet you make no attempt to refute any of it. If you know of an older source, share it. If not, deal with what the Hadith chronicled by Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim actually say.
Moving on, you said: "But I only want to point out to you the following: '1 - I am not a man, I am a woman.' I don't care if you are a man or a woman, young or old, red, green or blue. My issue is the terrorist dogma that has deceived, corrupted, and damned you and so many others.
But I'd be remiss if I didn't point out the folly of being a Muslim woman. Your god thinks you are worth half a man. Your prophet and his companions said: Tabari IX:113 "Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur'an." Why would you follow a prophet like this?
Tabari I:280 "Allah said, 'It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.' Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid." And indeed it is stupid to defend such nonsense.
In a perverted man's world, polygamy rules: Qur'an 4:3 "If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with orphans, marry women of your choice who seem good to you, two or three or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to do justice (to so many), then only one, or (a slave) that you possess, that will be more suitable. And give the women their dower as a free gift; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, eat it with enjoyment, take it with right good cheer and absorb it (in your wealth)." Qur'an 4:11 "Allah directs you in regard of your Children's (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females… These are settled portions ordained by Allah." Like I said, Allah thinks your worth half a man.
Bukhari:V1B22N28 "The Prophet said: 'I was shown the Hell Fire and the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.' When asked what they were ungrateful for, the Prophet answered, 'All the favors done for them by their husbands.'" Yes, Islam has a special place for women.
By way of confirmation and amplification: Muslim:B1N142 "'O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.' A wise lady said: Why is it, Allah's Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell? The Prophet observed: 'You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.' Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, 'Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.'" How can a woman read such offensive and erroneous material and call me hateful? There is something genuinely hateful here and it's Muhammad, Allah and Islam.
Qur'an 4:43 "Believers, approach not prayers with a mind befogged or intoxicated until you understand what you utter. Nor when you are polluted, until after you have bathed. If you are ill, or on a journey, or come from answering the call of nature, or you have touched a woman, and you find no water, then take for yourselves clean dirt, and rub your faces and hands. Lo! Allah is Benign, Forgiving." The Qur'an claims women are unclean and polluted - worse than dirt. I'm sure you noticed there is no requirement for washing if a woman touches a man.
Bukhari:V4B55N547 "The Prophet said, 'But for the Israelis, meat would not decay, and if it were not for Eve, wives would never betray their husbands. '" In actuality, it is Muhammad who has betrayed you. Qur'an 33:59 "Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and all Muslim women to draw cloaks and veils all over their bodies (screening themselves completely except for one or two eyes to see the way). That will be better." Better for whom--the women who are discriminated against?
Qur'an 4:15 "If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; if they testify, confine them to houses until death [by starvation] claims them." That's nice.
Bukhari:V4B52N143/V5B59N523 "When we reached Khaybar, Muhammad said that Allah had enabled him to conquer them. It was then that the beauty of Safiyah was described to him. Her husband had been killed, so Allah's Apostle selected her for himself. He took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad where her menses were over and he took her for his wife, consummating his marriage to her, and forcing her to wear the veil.'" Involuntary sex is rape. You must be proud to follow a prophet who was a rapist. And this story is but one of three rapes chronicled in the Hadith.
Bukhari:V5B59N524 "The Muslims said among themselves, 'Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive and one of his possessions?'" Ishaq:593 "From the captives of Hunayn, Allah's Messenger gave [his son-in-law] Ali a slave girl called Baytab and he gave [future Caliph] Uthman a slave girl called Zaynab and [future Caliph] Umar another." Islam is little more than the quest for sex, money and power.
Bukhari:V3B48N826 "The Prophet said, 'Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?' The women said, 'Yes.' He said, 'This is because of the deficiency of a woman's mind.'" This is so very sad. I feel sorry for you and for every Muslim woman. It's a crying shame.
Ishaq:584 "Tell the men with you who have wives: never trust a woman." Ishaq:185 "In hell I saw women hanging by their breasts. They had fathered bastards." Qur'an 24:34 "Force not your slave-girls to whoredom (prostitution) if they desire chastity, that you may seek enjoyment of this life. [And here's the freedom-to-pimp card:] But if anyone forces them, then after such compulsion, Allah is oft-forgiving." Ishaq:469 "The Apostle said, 'Every wailing woman lies except those who wept for Sa'd.'" Tabari VIII:62/Ishaq:496 "Ali [Muhammad's adopted son, son-in-law, and future Caliph] said, 'Prophet, women are plentiful. You can get a replacement, easily changing one for another.'" That is why Muhammad and Allah think so little of you.
Ishaq:496 "Ask the slave girl; she will tell you the truth.' So the Apostle called Burayra to ask her. Ali got up and gave her a violent beating first, saying, 'Tell the Apostle the truth.'" And women are still beaten throughout the Islamic world.
Your next point is completely inconsistent with the Qur'an, Hadith, and history. "2 - You don't have to liberate me, I was born liberated by the Grace of God. You better liberate your own people!" Islam isn't liberation, it's submission. You know that as well as I do. The most prevalent theme in the Medina surahs is "submit and obey." Here is proof:
|Qur'an 33:36||"It is not fitting for a Muslim man or woman to have any choice in their affairs when a matter has been decided for them by Allah and His Messenger. They have no option. If any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a wrong Path."|
|Qur'an 3:19||"Lo! religion with Allah (is) Surrender."|
|Ishaq:322||"Allah said, 'Do not turn away from Muhammad when he is speaking to you. Do not contradict his orders. And do not be a hypocrite, one who pretends to be obedient to him and then disobeys him. Those who do so will receive My vengeance. You must respond to the Apostle when he summons you to war."|
|Qur'an 8:24||"O Believers! Answer Allah and (His) Messenger when he calls you to that which will give you life [martyrdom].... Fear the affliction and trial that awaits those who do not obey. Allah is severe."|
|Qur'an 4:80||"He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah."|
|Tabari VIII:182||"The people assembled in Mecca to swear allegiance to the Messenger in submission. He received from them the oath of allegiance to himself, to heed and obey."|
|Bukhari:V4B52N203||"I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'He who obeys me, obeys Allah, and he who disobeys me, disobeys Allah. He who obeys the chief, obeys me, and he who disobeys the chief, disobeys me.'"|
|Qur'an 87:10||"He who fears will mind."|
|Qur'an 47:21||"Were they to obey, showing their obedience in modest speech after a matter had been determined for them, it would have been better."|
|Qur'an 47:33||"Believers, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger. Do not falter; become faint-hearted, or weak-kneed, crying for peace."|
|Qur'an 4:114||"He who disobeys the Apostle after guidance has been revealed will burn in Hell."|
|Qur'an 49:14||"The desert Arabs say, 'We believe.' Say: 'You have no faith; but you (only) say, "We submit." For not yet has Faith entered you. But if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not belittle your deeds.' Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and have never since doubted, and have striven with their belongings and lives in the Cause of Allah."|
|Qur'an 49:16||"Say: 'What! Will you instruct Allah about your religion?' They impress you (Muhammad) that they have Surrendered (Islam). Say, 'Count not your Surrender as a favor to me: Nay, Allah lays you under an obligation."|
|Qur'an 9:53||"Say: 'Pay your contribution for the Cause willingly or unwillingly.'"|
|Qur'an 5:4||"This day those who reject faith give up all hope of your religion. Yet fear them not, fear Me. This day I have perfected your religion and have chosen for you Submission as your religion." |
|Qur'an 5:7||"Remember Allah's covenant which He ratified with you, when you said: 'We hear and we obey.' And fear Allah." |
|Qur'an 5:92||"Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and beware!" |
|Muslim:C22B20N4604||"We used to take oath to the Messenger of Allah that we would listen to and obey his orders. He would tell us to say in the oath: As far as it lies in my power."|
|Qur'an 48:10||"Verily those who swear allegiance to you (Muhammad), indeed swear their allegiance to Allah."|
|Qur'an 56:57||"It is We Who have created you: admit the truth and then surrender."|
|Bukhari: V9B89N256||"Allah's Apostle said, 'You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he is a black African slave whose head looks like a raisin.'"|
|Bukhari:V9B89N258||"The Prophet said, 'A Muslim has to listen to and obey the order of his ruler whether he likes it or not.'"|
|Qur'an 58:46||"Obey Allah and His Messenger; and do not dispute!"|
|Qur'an 64:12||"So obey Allah, and obey His Messenger (Muhammad)."|
|Qur'an 3:131||"Fear the Fire, which is prepared for those who reject Faith: and obey Allah and the Messenger."|
|Qur'an 24:51||"The only response of the (true) Believers when summoned to Allah and His Messenger in order to judge between them, is no other than this: they say, 'We hear and we obey.' Such are successful. Those who obey Allah and His Messenger, fear Allah and do right, such are the victorious. Whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger fears Allah and keeps his duty."|
|Qur'an 24:53||"They swear their strongest oaths saying that if only you would command them. They would leave their homes (and go forth fighting in Allah's Cause). Say: 'Swear not; Obedience is (more) reasonable.' Say: 'Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger." |
|Qur'an 4:59||"Believers, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority. If you dispute any matter, refer it to Allah and His Messenger. That is best, and most suitable for final determination."|
|Qur'an 4:64||"We sent not a messenger but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah."|
|Qur'an 4:65||"But no, by the Lord, they can have no Faith until they make you (Muhammad) judge in all disputes, and find in their souls no resistance against Your decisions, and accept them with complete submission."|
|Qur'an 4:66||"If We had ordered them to sacrifice their lives or to leave their homes [to fight], very few of them would have done it: But if they had done what they were told, it would have been best for them, and would have strengthened their (faith)." Qur'an 4:69 "All who obey Allah and the Messenger are the ones whom Allah has bestowed favors [war booty]."|
|Qur'an 4:83||"When there comes to them some matter regarding war, they discuss it. If only they had referred it to the Messenger, or to those charged with authority, the proper investigators would have understood it."|
|Qur'an 4:115||"If anyone contradicts or opposes the Messenger [not Allah] after guidance has been conveyed to him, and follows a path other than the way, We shall burn him in Hell!"|
|Bukhari:V9B92N384||"Allah's Apostle said, 'Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise, and whoever disobeys me will not.'"|
If you think that any of this is about liberation you need a dictionary.
Now as for Grace, it is Allah who needs a dictionary. To be graceful, Allah wants you to sacrifice your money and your life. That makes you the one who gives. He wants you to die fighting for him. In Christianity, Yahweh sacrificed himself. He is the one who gives because grace is an undeserved reward or gift.
Here is how grace actually works: Centuries before Christ came into our world in the form of a man, Isaiah wrote: "All of us like sheep have gone astray. Each has turned to his own way. But Yahweh has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. He was pierced for our transgressions and by his scourging we are healed. He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded [became a bridge] for our transgressions." Yahweh told us how He was going to solve the problem of sin; how He was going to build a bridge from our polluted world to His perfect one. He said that He would sacrifice Himself for our iniquity. The bridge is His gift to us.
Paul, centuries later, in his letter to the Ephesians wrote: "You were dead in your trespasses and sins in which you did according to Satan and his spirit working through the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the world and of our mind. But Yahweh, being rich in mercy, and because of His great love for us, made us alive together with Christ. By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not as a result of works that no one should boast. By the blood of Yahshua, the Messiah, we have been brought near Yahweh."
John, the most passionate of Christ's disciples, composed these stirring words: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. Whoever receives Him, He gives the right to become His children, even to those who believe in Him. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is no longer judged."
Therefore, according to the Bible, there is no day of judgment for those washed by Christ's blood. There are no rituals that earn passage on his bridge - one built entirely out of the timbers upon which He hung. There are no taxes, no tolls, no devotional obligations, no pilgrimages, or prayer performances. Your salvation isn't dependent upon the submission to, or acknowledgement of, any prophet. Fear and fighting have no role. A simple "I do" will suffice. Yahshua said, "I am the way the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but by me." He sacrificed himself so that your sins would all be forgiven, abrogated, in Islamic parlance. His blood on the cross of history, at the crossroads of civilization, frees you to enter a personal and eternal relationship with Yahweh in paradise.
To cross that bridge, you don't need to get on your knees, close your eyes, bring your hands together, bow your head, or face Jerusalem. You do, however, need to make a choice.
Your next point was: "3 - Instead of wasting your time & resources on spreading hate, I suggest you should have directed these efforts towards the social evils engulfing the western society, where a man will even sleep with his own mother, sister and daughter if he cannot find another woman!"
Because I am committed to exposing Muhammad's Sira, Hadith, Sunnah, and Qur'an, I am indeed spreading hate as his words were the most hateful ever presented in the name of religion. Rather than present a hundred hate verses from his lips, I'll simply direct you to the Quotations Appendix on the site. Browse the passages under Tolerance, Christians, and Jews.
There is nothing in the Bible which encourages sexual perversion. Those who partake are condemned. The same cannot be said for Islam. Muhammad was a pedophile, he was incestuous, a rapist, and a womanizer. I encourage you to read the beginning of the Pedophile Pirate chapter. While it's revolting, it may serve to open your eyes. Yet there is a bigger point to be made here.
Unable to defend your own religion, unable to defend the immorality of your prophet, you try to deflect attention away from it and him by suggesting that an infinitesimally small percentage of westerners are perverted. While it's true, they unlike Muhammad didn't make up scripture, didn't claim to be prophets, and they didn't tell anyone to follow their example.

|Tabari VIII:187||"The [sixty-two-year old] Messenger of Allah married Mulaykah. She was young and beautiful. One of the Prophet's wives came to her and said, 'Are you not ashamed to marry a man who killed your father during the day he conquered Mecca?" She therefore took refuge from him."|

|Qur'an 66:4||"If you (women) turn in repentance to him, it would be better. Your hearts have been impaired, for you desired (the ban) [on how many girls Muhammad could play with at a time]. But if you back each other up against (Muhammad), truly Allah is his protector, and Gabriel, and everyone who believes - and furthermore, the angels will back (him) up." Qur'an 66:5 "Maybe, if he divorces you (all), Allah will give him in exchange consorts better than you - submissive, faithful, obedient, adorers who worship, who travel, and are inclined to fasting - previously married or virgins."|

|Tabari IX:131||"My mother came to me while I was being swung on a swing between two branches and got me down. My nurse wiped my face with some water and started leading me. When I was at the door she stopped so I could catch my breath. I was then brought in while the Messenger was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on his lap. Then the men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old." |

|Tabari VIII:1||"In this year the Messenger married Zaynab bt. Jahsh [a first cousin: Allah's Messenger came to the house of Zayd bin [son of] Muhammad. Perhaps the Messenger missed him at that moment. Zaynab, Zayd's wife, rose to meet him. She was dressed only in a shift…. She jumped up eagerly and excited the admiration of Allah's Messenger, so that he turned away murmuring something that could scarcely be understood. However, he did say overtly, 'Glory be to Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!' So Zayd went to Muhammad. 'Prophet, I have heard that you came to my house. Why didn't you go in? [Dad,] Perhaps Zaynab has excited your admiration, so I will leave her.'"|
|Tabari VIII:4||"One day Muhammad went out looking for Zayd. Now there was a covering of haircloth over the doorway, but the wind had lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the heart of the Prophet. After that Allah made her unattractive to Zayd.'"|
|Tabari VIII:3||"Zayd left her, and she became free. While the Messenger of Allah was talking with Aisha, 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? Allah has married her to me.' Then the Prophet recited [Qur'an 33] to the end of the passage. Aisha said, 'I became very uneasy because of what we heard about her beauty and another thing, the loftiest of matters, what Allah had done for her by personally giving her to him in marriage. I said that she would boast of it over us.'"|
|Qur'an 33:4||"Allah has not made your wives whom you divorce your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths."|

|Qur'an 33:37||"You hid in your mind and your heart that which Allah was about to manifest: you feared the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zayd had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We gave her to you, joining her in marriage to you: in order that there may be no difficulty or sin for the Believers in 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."|
|Qur'an 33:38||"There can be no difficulty, harm, or reproach to the Prophet in doing what Allah has ordained to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And the commandment of Allah is a decree determined. (It is the practice of those) who deliver the Messages of Allah, and fear Him. Allah keeps good account. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Last of the Prophets with the Seal: and Allah has full knowledge of all things."|
|Qur'an 33:48||"And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites. Disregard their noxious talk and heed not their annoyances, but put thy trust in Allah. For enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."|
|Qur'an 33:50||"O Prophet! We have made lawful to you all the wives to whom you have paid dowers; and those whom your hands possess out of the prisoners of war spoils whom Allah has assigned to you; and daughters of your paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of your uncles and aunts, who migrated with you; and any believing woman if the Prophet wishes her; this is a privilege for you only, and not for the rest of the Believers; We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom they possess; in order that there should be no difficulty for you and that you should be free from blame."|
|Qur'an 33:51||"You may put off whom you please, and you may take to you whomever you desire. You may defer any of them you please, and you may have whomever you desire; there is no blame on you if you invite one who you had set aside. It is no sin."|
|Qur'an 33:28||"O Prophet, say to your wives and consorts: 'If you desire this world's life and its glittering adornment, then come! I will provide them for your enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner. And if you desire Allah and His Messenger and the latter abode, then lo! Allah hath prepared for the good-doers an immense reward."|
|Qur'an 33:30||"O Consorts of the Prophet! If any of you are guilty of unseemly conduct, shamelessness, or lewdness, the punishment will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah. But any of you that is devout, obedient, and submissive in the service to Allah and His Messenger, and does good, to her shall We grant her reward twice. We have prepared for her a generously rich provision."|
|Qur'an 33:32||"Consorts of the Prophet! You are not like any of the (other) women. Fear and keep your duty, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire. Stay quietly in your apartment. Make not a dazzling display like that of the former times of Ignorance. Perform the devotion, pay the zakat; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah wishes to cleanse you with a thorough cleansing. And bear in mind that which is recited in your houses of the revelations of Allah and the wisdom."|
|Qur'an 33:36||"It is not fitting for a Muslim man or woman to have any choice in their affairs when a matter has been decided for them by Allah and His Messenger. They have no option. If any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a wrong Path."|
|Qur'an 4:23||"Prohibited to you are: your mothers, daughters, sisters.... Also (prohibited are) women already married, except slaves who are captives." [Rape is okay with Team Islam.]|
|Bukhari:V5B59N459||"I entered the Mosque, saw Abu, sat beside him and asked about sex. Abu Said said, 'We went out with Allah's Apostle and we received female slaves from among the captives. We desired women and we loved to do coitus interruptus.'"|
Why don't you try to explain all of these away. Every surah reference quoted above is presented in the context of the surrounding verses and in the context of what the Hadith says about Muhammad's life in Prophet of Doom. If you have the courage and wisdom to read it, you will find the courage and wisdom to flee this disgusting man and his repulsive religion.
Lastly, you say: "4 - By debate I do not mean a radio or TV debate, I mean a conference where if you want you can have other scholars also participating. I will contact Mr Zaker for the same purpose."
Don't bother. First, it's your soul, not Zaker's. Show some initiative, take some responsibility. Either read the source material independently, or read it in Prophet of Doom, but for heaven's sake, read. I am appalled by the willingness of Muslims to lash out without first learning--to criticize without first reading. You are deceived because you allow yourself to be deceived.
Second, I'll debate any Muslim cleric or scholar online, on the radio, or on television. Better yet, why not have Islamic scholars refute the Islamic sources presented in Prophet of Doom. That ought to be interesting because to do so, they will have to call their prophet and god liars.
But, I will not debate in person. Muslims have proved that they cannot be trusted. I have watched video tapes of conferences like the one you suggest. The audience, which is almost always all Islamic, is universally rude. They come to taunt, not to learn. So it's a waste of time. But that's not the biggest problem. Each debate I have witnessed ended violently. Muslims in the audience came at the presenters with knives and batons--beating and stabbing them. Today's Muslims emulate their prophet's character, they follow his example of assassination and brutality. In essence, Muslims prove that Islam is still as rotten as it was when Muhammad first perpetrated it. (Craig)
For all the readers of Prophet of Doom Don't be misguided by Criag and his biased book. Know the true Islam. Be God guide us all to the right path. Ameen (BH)
There is a reason "BH" just gave up. She can't win, nor can any Muslim. Islam is indefensible. It is a lose-lose game. Here is why:
The entire credibility of the Qur'an rests on Muhammad's testimony. He is the only person who heard the angel reciting or the bell ringing in his head. If his character cannot be established as being trustworthy, his "scripture" is worthless. Yet the only account of Muhammad's life written within 200 years of his death is Ibn Ishaq's Sira. Its biographical portrayal of Muhammad's deeds, words, and character prove that he was not worthy of anyone's trust. Islamic scholar Dr. D.S. Margoliouth sums up the depiction of Muhammad in Ishaq's Sira as follows: "The character attributed to Muhammad in the biography of Ibn Ishaq is exceedingly unfavorable. In order to gain his ends Muhammad recoils from no expedient, and he approves of similar unscrupulousness on the part of his adherents, when exercised in his interest. He organizes assassinations and wholesale massacres. His career as the tyrant of Medina is that of a robber chief whose political economy consists of securing and dividing plunder. He is himself an unbridled libertine [morally or sexually unrestrained] and encourages the same passion in his followers. For whatever he does he is prepared to plead the express authorization of his deity. It is, however, impossible to find any Islamic religious doctrine which he is not prepared to abandon in order to secure a political end. At different points in his career he abandons the unity of God and his claim to the title of Prophet. This is a disagreeable picture for the founder of a religion, and it cannot be pleaded that it is a picture drawn by an enemy."
But don't take his word for it. Read the Sira and other Hadith collections yourself. The documented references in Prophet of Doom were derived from English translations of the following ancient Islamic manuscripts. I encourage you to purchase and read them. The Sirat Rasul Allah was written by Ibn Ishaq in 750 A.D. It was edited and abridged by Ibn Hisham in 830 and translated by Alfred Guillaume under the title, The Life of Muhammad in 1955 by Oxford Press. The History of al-Tabari was written by Abu Muhammad bin al-Tabari between 870 and 920 A.D. His monumental work was translated and published in 1987 through 1997 by the State University of New York Press. I quote from volumes I, II, VI, VII, VIII, and IX. Al-Bukhari's Hadith, titled: Sahih Al-Bukhari and The True Traditions was collected by Imam Bukhari in 850 A.D. I have used the collector's original nomenclature because the only printed English translation (Publisher-Maktaba Dar-us-Salam, Translator-Muhammad Khan) was abridged and erroneously numbered. Finally, I recommend that you acquire at least three of the following Qur'an translations: Ahmed Ali, Pikthal, Noble by Muhsin Khan, Yusuf Ali, or Shakir. The oldest Qur'an fragments date to around 725 A.D. - a century after they were first recited. A link has been provided at ProphetOfDoom.net to each of these sites for your convenience.
When a Muslim says, "Don't be misguided by Craig and his biased book," they are in essence saying that the Qur'an surahs and the Hadith from Muhammad's companions that Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari and Muslim relied upon, were biased since Prophet of Doom is simply a presentation of and commentary on these materials. If they do not represent "true Islam," what does?
The undeniable fact is they, and only they, represent true Islam. Muhammad was Allah's lone voice and Islam's sole founder. As such, Allah and Islam must be as he claims. That is why Prophet of Doom presents over 80% of the historical Hadith, and why it uses them to give the Qur'an the context and chronology it otherwise lacks. Since most Muslims have never read the original sources, and since very few Muslims have bothered to read the Qur'an set in the context of Muhammad's life, they are startled by what their own scriptures reveal. They are repulsed by the truth. And unable to refute the Qur'an and Hadith without calling their prophet and god a liar, they give up, deny the source material, and lash out at me.
Hopefully, a few Muslims will take responsibility for their own souls. Hopefully, a few Muslims will read the Hadith collected by Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim and come to terms with the evil nature of their prophet. Hopefully, a few Muslims will read the Qur'an in the order it was revealed and contemplate it's obvious lack of divine inspiration when placed into the context of Muhammad's despicable life. Hopefully, a few Muslims will use their minds, their "scriptures," history, and reason to free themselves from the deception of Islam. Thankfully, some already have, so my prayer is that a few becomes many.
The truth is irrefutable. The Muhammad of Islam must be as demonic, sadistic, murderous, immoral, and criminal as the Hadith collected by Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim present him as he is completely unknown to history. There are no earlier or more authentic sources than these which were written by the earliest Islamic scholars. While every Hadith and Qur'an surah is based entirely upon the verbal testimony of the prophet's companions, if they cannot be trusted there is nothing left to trust.
The only attempts Islamic scholars make to side-step this fatal problem is to say that I have pulled Hadith and Qur'an verses out of context and that some Hadith aren't approved and acceptable. First, the chronological presentation of Hadith and surahs in Prophet of Doom is more contextual than the Islamic sources themselves. So that argument is nonsense. And the second defense won't fly either as the most damning Hadith are found in multiple sources and they are verified in the Qur'an. Such examples are: the Satanic Verses which resulted from covetous desires, the Night's Journey to the nonexistent temple, the accusations that Muhammad was a demon-possessed madman plagiarizing the Qur'an, that Qur'anic scripture was purchased from the Jews, that two Jewish settlements were terrorized and robbed by Muhammad with one ending in mass murder, rape, and the enslavement of children, that Muhammad went to Badr as a pirate, not a prophet, and that Muhammad attacked Christians for no reason other than he craved their money. If the Hadith that present these events are not acceptable then the Qur'an which verifies them isn't acceptable. Further, why would a Muslim trust a contemporary scholar's opinion of what is and is not reliable over the judgment of the first Islamic scholars--Ishaq, Tabari, and Bukhari--the very men who preserved that which modern apologists are evaluating?
There is an equally serious problem with Islam that errant dogma tries to hide. Muslims are told that the Qur'an is a perfect book, directly from God, precisely as He dictated it to Muhammad. Yet that's impossible for a thousand reasons. The most glaring proofs are as follows: The Religious Arabic of the first Qur'ans were unpointed. Therefore, there was no way to distinguish a "j" or "h" from a "k", a "q" from a "f", a "b" from a "t", a "z" from a "r", or a "s" or "d" from a "sh" or "dh". Short vowels were nonexistent and many long vowels were unknown. With half of the alphabet in question, scribes in Baghdad a hundred years after Muhammad's first verbal recitals had to do an enormous amount of guessing. And that would explain the second problem--the oldest Qur'an fragments don't match today's text.
Third, the Hadith depiction of the Qur'an's collection is hopelessly garbled and contradictory. And even then, there is no evidence that any of these scenarios occurred.
Fourth, the oldest Qur'an fragments date to a century after the first recital and thus there is nothing other than hearsay to connect them to Muhammad. And there are many Hadith that show Muhammad himself forgot Qur'an verses and that his followers were conflicted as well. It's devastating to Islam that Muhammad treated his Qur'anic legacy with such disregard--never bothering to write it down or collect it into a book.
Fifth, the leading authority on the initial script of the Qur'an, studying the oldest fragments says: "One out of every five verses is indecipherable - meaningless in any language." That is why Islamic clerics don't want the Qur'an translated out of Religious Arabic, a language an infinitesimal percentage people--even Muslims--understand. The more one knows the worse it gets.
Sixth, there are an overwhelming number of historical and scientific errors in the Qur'an.
Seventh, the Qur'an's claim that it confirms the Torah and Gospels is impossible, since they differ in most every way on most every page. Even the Qur'an's corruption theory was proven errant by the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Eighth, there are countless examples of Muhammad plagiarizing his text directly out of uninspired Jewish legends--in particular the Talmud, Midrash, and Mishna.
Ninth, the Qur'an's most important terms are presented in Rabbinical Hebrew and Syrian Christian words, not Arabic.
Tenth, the Qur'an is very poorly written. It lacks order, transitions, chronology, and context. The spirit who inspired the Qur'an could not have created the universe.
Eleventh, the character attributed to Allah in the Qur'an is devilish, as are Allah's oaths, orders, and occupation.
Twelfth, the Qur'an's message is overwhelmingly hateful, violent, warlike, intolerant, and sadistic. Allah's book promotes everything the Ten Commandments denounce.
Thirteenth, much of the Qur'an served only to excuse and promote Muhammad's criminal and immoral behavior. When he wants to kill his kin, Allah approves slaughter. When Muhammad wants to steal, the Qur'an approves booty. When he wants to capture and sell slaves to finance his war machine, Allah condones slavery. When Islam's prophet wants to fight, Allah focuses on glorifying fighting--calling it the best deed. When Muhammad wants his son's wife, there is a Qur'anic surah dedicated to approving incest. Fourteenth, there are no miracles nor any accurate prophetic utterances in the Qur'an--and therefore no evidence whatsoever that it was inspired. Moreover, desperate to demonstrate his existence and power, Allah errantly claims credit for Muhammad's deeds and for Yahweh's miracles. And fifteenth, the Qur'an is so full of contradictions it contains verses that excuse them. Each of these points, as well as many others, are proven conclusively in Prophet of Doom and in its Source Material Appendix.
Because of the Qur'an's deficiency in context and chronology, it cannot be translated, interpreted, understood, or followed without resorting to the Hadith collections of Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim. There are so many missing words, meaningless words, foreign words, unidentified subjects and modifiers, both translator and interpreter require additional sources. Moreover, unlike any rational book ever written, the Qur'an has no sense of order. It's a jumbled and incoherent mess. Without the chronological Hadith collections of Ishaq and Tabari, it cannot be arranged in the order it was revealed and thus the verse that excuses contradictions and mixed messages (2:106), cannot be applied as one would not know which verses to abrogate. Without Ishaq and Tabari no Muslim would be able to follow Muhammad's example as the 33rd surah requires. Muhammad's Sunnah would be unknown apart from the contextual and historical presentation of Hadith. Moreover, without the four earliest Hadith collections, the Qur'an incessant demand that Muslims follow Muhammad's orders would be impossible. Since the Qur'an only contains Allah's commands, Muhammad's orders can only be found in the Hadith.
Worse still, Islam cannot be practiced without the Hadith collections of Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim because they not only provide its Five Pillars, they alone define them. To prove this point, I'd like to review Islam's Five Pillars to demonstrate that they don't stand without the Hadith Collections found in the Sunnah. But before we begin, Islam provides an important clue. To find the Pillars, we must turn to the Hadith, not the Qur'an. And while I will conduct this analysis using the "approved" version of Islam's Five Pillars, there are competing scenarios we must consider. Muhammad couldn't decide what his priorities were - much less Allah's.
The most famous Islamic proclamations echo the Qur'an's incessant command to fight jihad in Allah's Cause. Muhammad established jihad's preeminence, claiming that fighting was the foundation upon which Islam's other pillars must stand. Under the title "Fighting In Allah's Cause - Jihad," we read: "Jihad is holy fighting in Allah's Cause with full force of numbers and weaponry. It is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars. By Jihad Islam is established, Allah's Word is made superior (which means only Allah has the right to be worshiped), and Islam is propagated. By abandoning Jihad Islam is destroyed and Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape from this duty, or does not fulfill this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite."
The reason jihad supersedes the other pillars is because: Bukhari:V4B52N44 "A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, 'Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad in reward.' He replied, 'I do not find such a deed. Can you, while the Muslim fighter has gone out for Jihad, enter a mosque to perform prayers without ceasing and fast forever?' The man said, 'No one can do that.'" So Jihad is superior to endless prayer and fasting. But there was more:Bukhari:V4B52N46 "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'The example of a Mujahid [Muslim fighter] in Allah's Cause - and Allah knows best who really strives in His Cause - is like a person who fasts and prays without ever stopping. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.'" It's the Devil's rendition of the win-win scenario. And that leads us to the capper, the line that confirmed jihad was better than all of the Five Pillars combined: Bukhari:V4B52N50 "The Prophet said, 'A single endeavor of fighting in Allah's Cause is better than the world and whatever is in it.'"
From the very beginning, there was always a direct causal link between the religion of Islam and Islamic terror:Bukhari:V4B52N63 "A man whose face was covered with an iron mask of armor came to the Prophet and said, 'Allah's Apostle! Shall I fight or embrace Islam first?' The Prophet said, 'Embrace Islam first and then fight.' So he embraced Islam, and was martyred. Allah's Apostle said, 'A Little work, but a great reward.'" Consistent with this message,Bukhari:V1B2N25 "Allah's Apostle was asked, 'What is the best deed?' He replied, 'To believe in Allah and His Apostle Muhammad.' The questioner then asked, 'What is the next (in goodness)?' He replied, 'To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah's Cause.' The questioner again asked, 'What is the next (in goodness)?' He replied, 'To perform Hajj (Pilgrim age to Mecca in accordance with the Traditions of the Prophet.'" This is important because it establishes Three Pillars, with Jihad being the second most important.
The next rendition of Pillars eliminates the Hajj, which was number three above, and replaces it with the Khumus - Muhammad's share of stolen booty.Bukhari:V1B2N50 "They said, 'O Allah's Apostle, order us to do some religious deeds that we may enter Paradise.' The Prophet ordered them to believe in Allah Alone and asked them, 'Do you know what is meant by believing in Allah Alone?' They replied, 'Allah and His Apostle know better.' Thereupon the Prophet said, 'It means: 1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah's Apostle. 2. To offer prayers perfectly. 3. To pay the Zakat obligatory tax. 4. To observe fast during Ramadan. 5. And to pay the Khumus (one fifth of the booty to be given in Allah's Cause) to Allah's Apostle.'"
That said, I promised to resolve Islam's absolute reliance on the Sunnah by analyzing the "officially recognized" Pillars. To begin:Bukhari:V1B2N7 "Allah's Apostle said: 'Islam is based on (the following) five (principles): 1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah's Apostle.'" Let's tackle them one at a time. In its present order, the Qur'an's initial surah, the 2nd, (the 1st is an invocation, not a revelation as it speaks to god not to man) makes a transition from Ar-Rahman to Allah. But as we read on, this changes. The Qur'anic God becomes Ar-Rahman again and then a nameless Lord. Without the chronology the Sira's Hadith provide, Muslims don't know who God is or how many of them there are. Furthermore, they know nothing about the "Apostle." Without the Sunnah, acknowledging him in the profession of faith is like a tape recorder asking to be credited for bringing you the songs of your favorite artist.
But it gets worse. The Qur'an orders Muslims to obey the Messenger. If you don't know what he said that's impossible. The Qur'an alleges that it's entirely composed of Allah's orders, not Muhammad's, so you'd be out of luck. The Qur'an also tells Muslims that they must follow the Messenger's example, yet the only place that example is established is in the Sunnah. Therefore, Islam's First Pillar is utterly meaningless, and impossible to implement, without Ishaq and Tabari.
The Second Pillar is: "2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) prayers dutifully and perfectly." Once again, that's not feasible. The "compulsory congregational prayer" isn't described in the Qur'an. There aren't even any clues. In fact, the Qur'an says that there should be three prayers, none of which it depicts, and the Hadith demands five. The only explanation of the obligatory prostration is found in the Sunnah - and even then it's never described by the prophet himself. Muslims are performing a ritual without Qur'anic precedence. As such, the Second Pillar is rubble.
The Third Pillar does not survive without the Sunnah. To find out why, we turn to the Hadith:Bukhari:V1B2N7 "3. To pay Zakat." How is that possible when the terms of the Zakat are omitted from the Qur'an? The first to commit them to paper was Ishaq. A century later, Tabari referenced Ishaq's Hadith. The only reason Muslims can pay the Zakat is because Ishaq explained it to them. Islam is bankrupt without the Sira.
The Fourth Pillar fares no better: "4. To perform Hajj." Nope. That's impossible too. The only explanations of the Hajj are in the Sunnah. No aspect of the pilgrimage can be performed without referencing the Hadith. Muslims would be lost without it.
Allah fails to redeem himself or explain the final pillar in his "perfect, detailed, and final revelation to mankind."Bukhari:V1B2N7 "5. To observe fast during the month of Ramadan." Allah didn't bother to explain the nature of the fast. Without the Hadith, Muslims would be expected to forgo eating during the entire month of Ramadhan. But that's not the way they observe the fast, for it's not the way it's explained in the Sunnah. As a matter of fact, without the Hadith, Muslims wouldn't know why Ramadhan was special. The only account of the initial revelation is in their Traditions - initially chronicled by Ishaq and then copied by Bukhari, Muslim, and Tabari.
Without Ibn Ishaq and those who copied and edited his arrangement of Hadith concerning Muhammad's words and deeds, there would be no Islam. The Qur'an is senseless and the Five Pillars are meaningless. Faith is folly. And that's especially true since the lone individual responsible for Islam, Allah, and the Qur'an, preached:Bukhari:V9B88N174 "Allah's Apostle said, 'Far removed from mercy are those who change the religion of Islam after me! Islam cannot change!'"
The penalty for escaping Muhammad's clutches has always been high.Bukhari:V4B52N260 "The Prophet said, 'If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.'" This was no ordinary prophet or religion. No, Muhammad was special. He was a terrorist and a pirate, and you don't find too many of those in religious circles.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.'"
Yes, Islam was a fraud. It was all about Muhammad, and he knew it. That is why he required his Sunnah, or example to be enacted as law.Tabari IX:82 "The Messenger sent [killer] Khalid out to collect taxes with an army of 400 and ordered him to invite people to Islam before he fought them. If they were to respond and submit, he was to teach them the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Prophet, and the requirements of Islam. If they should decline, then he was to fight them."
So it all comes down to this: If the Qur'an and Hadith Collections of Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari and Muslim are true, Muhammad was the most evil man who ever lived, Allah was the most demented god ever conceived, and Islam was the most vile doctrine ever imposed on humankind. If, however, the Qur'an and Hadith Collections are untrue, then nothing is known of Muhammad, the conception of his god, or his formation of Islam. There is no rational reason to believe it, observe it, suffer under it, or die for it.
Opening Muslim eyes to the truth about Islam and the fraud Muhammad perpetrated is one of two reasons Prophet of Doom was prepared. I want Muslims to see how their prophet and god are presented in the earliest sources. I want them to read the Qur'an set into the context of Muhammad's miserable life. I agree with Renan, the famed scholar, who, after dedicating himself to understanding Islamic scripture, wrote: "Muslims were the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain others in the practice of this religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him."
The second reason for presenting the Islamic scriptures in Prophet of Doom is a bit more selfish. Islamic Jihadists following Muhammad's example and Allah's orders are murdering millions of Christians and Jews. I want that to stop. (Craig)
"That's an awfully lengthy mail. The below excerpts from one of Mr Zakir Naik's books will answer your major accusations." (BH)
Zakir's excerpts that BH copied and pasted were entirely comprised of opinions based upon either an ignorance of, or disregard for, his own history and scriptures. Not a single excerpt used a historical or archeological fact traceable to within centuries of Muhammad's life. Not a single Hadith was quoted to address the problems raised by the Islamic scriptures sent to BH. The Qur'an was quoted only twice. Both times verses were yanked from their context, giving the false impression that an abrogated verse hadn't been cancelled and replaced by a later one. For example: "10. No compulsion in religion. [Answer:] With which sword was Islam spread? Even if Muslims had it they could not use it to spread Islam because the Qur'an says in the following verse: 'Let there be no compulsion in religion.' [Al-Qur'an 2:256]" That would be tolerant if Allah didn't abrogate the verse by proclaiming in a subsequent revelation: Qur'an 4:90 "If they turn back from Islam, becoming renegades, seize them and kill them wherever you find them." Under the headings of Intolerance, Jews, and Christians in the Muhammad's Own Words Appendix of Prophet of Doom, you'll find several hundred more verses that clearly contradict the "no compulsion in religion" notion. Further to suggest that Muslims didn't use swords to conquer nations because of this verse demonstrates a complete disregard for history. So the bottom line is: either Zakir is too ignorant of his own history and scriptures to be writing about them or he is being purposely deceptive. I believe it is the latter.
It would be sad if that were all there was to BH's unwillingness to think for herself, but there is more. She copied one of my quotes before copying her answer: "The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources don't portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They reveal that he was a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained sexual pervert engaged in pedophilia, incest, and rape. He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet" Answer: Please read below what a Hindu Scholar, Prof. K. S. Ramakrishna Rao has to say about Muhammad: In the desert of Arabia was Mohammad born, according to Muslimn historians, on April 20, 571. The name means highly praised. He is to me the greatest mind among all the sons of Arabia..." Unable, or unwilling to deal with what the five earliest and most authentic Islamic books have to say about Muhammad, BH quotes the opinion of a Hindu scholar. If it weren't so sad, it would be funny.
BH's reply only proves she didn't bother to think about the hundreds of Islamic verses that were sent to her. In that way BH epitomizes why Muslims remain Muslims, and why Islam even exists. They don't know the prophet and god that are depicted in their own scriptures. Ignorance becomes the very culture upon which deception grows. BH's soul is lost and she doesn't care enough about it to think for herself.
While deleting the "answers" BH copied, I couldn't help but notice a few of the Hindu's statements. He or she is as ignorant of the original source material as is BH. The blind are leading the blind in the darkness of night. [comments inserted]:
"Picture these scenes: There is Mohammad the Prophet [that's funny as he will admit that he offered no future predictions], there is Mohammad the General [that's only true if you think a warlord directing mercenaries is an officer]; Mohammad the King [that's only true if you see the towns of Mecca and Medina as kingdoms]; Mohammad the Warrior [yes indeed]; Mohammad the Businessman [piracy and tax colleting at the point of a sword are businesses]; Mohammad the Preacher [and a rotten one at that--his sermons are included in POD]; Mohammad the Philosopher [actually the plagiarizer--the Hindu scholar didn't recognize the Talmud]; Mohammad the Statesman [there was no state, so that's not true]; Mohammad the Orator [just like Hitler]; Mohammad the Reformer [Arabs were transformed from self-reliant and peaceful to plundering pirates who ravaged the world]; Mohammad the Refuge of Orphans [actually he manufactured orphans by murdering their parents by the thousands]; Mohammad the Protector of slaves [Muhammad enslaved thousands of women and children according to the Hadith and Qur'an]; Mohammad the Emancipator of women [once again, the Hindu is unfamiliar with Islamic history, the Hadith, and the Qur'an as Islam treats women like dirt]; Mohammad the Law-giver [scholars have proved that 99.9% of Islamic laws were created 200 years after Muhammad's death]; Mohammad the Judge [this "scholar" obviously never read the ordeal of the Qurayza Jews]; Mohammad the Saint [the character attributed to Muhammad in the Islamic Hadith and Qur'an is the antithesis of Saintly]. And in all these magnificent roles, in all these departments of human activities, he is like, a hero..."
I dare anyone to ascribe to the following quote after reading Ishaq's Sira, the lone biography of Muhammad written within two centuries of his death: "From an orphan boy to a persecuted refugee and then to an overlord, spiritual as well as temporal, of a whole nation and Arbiter of its destinies, with all its trials and temptations, with all its vicissitudes and changes, its lights and shades, its up and downs, its terror and splendor, he has stood the fire of the world and came out unscathed to serve as a model in every face of life." If you believe that the world needs more rapists and pedophiles, pirates and thieves, warlords and terrorists, you've found the right role model.
Hitler, of all people was quoted by the Hindu scholar to make Muhammad look good: "He [Hitler] had studied at no military academy; yet he could organize his forces against tremendous odds and gained victories through the moral forces which he marshaled. Gifted men with genius for preaching are rare. Descartes included the perfect preacher among the rarest kind in the world. Hitler in his Mein Kamp has expressed a similar view. He says "A great theorist is seldom a great leader. An Agitator is more likely to posses these qualities. He will always be a great leader. For leadership means ability to move masses of men. The talents to produce ideas has nothing in common with capacity for leadership." "But", he says, "The Union of theorists, organizer and leader in one man, is the rarest phenomenon on this earth; Therein consists greatness." In the person of the Prophet of Islam the world has seen this rarest phenomenon walking on the earth, walking in flesh and blood."
No miracles and no prophecies are now proof: "It is an article of faith. Looking at the circumstances of the time and unbounded reverence of his followers" says a western writer "the most miraculous thing about Mohammad is, that he never claimed the power of working miracles." Miracles were performed [by Yahweh, the God of the Bible, and falsely credited to Allah] but not to propagate his faith [that's because they were done by Yahweh and Yahshua to prove the Bible, not by Allah to prove the Qur'an] and were attributed entirely to Allah and his inscrutable ways. He would plainly say that he was a man like others. He had no treasures of earth or heaven. [To discover why this is not true, read the Hadith presented in chapter 25 of Prophet of Doom. Muhammad died surrounded by stolen treasure.] Nor did he claim to know the secrets of that lie in womb of future." [That means he wasn't a prophet.]
Muslims are not the only ones who have lost their minds.
I hope this is enough for you to digest for today. Regards, BH
Yes, indeed, it is enough for me. (Craig)
Pls read the below article: Prof Debra Mubashshir, a former ordained preacher was the guest of the Islamic Propagation Centre International recently. She impacted greatly on South African society with her charm, warmth, and fascinating perspective of Islam and what it meant to her. Hers is an enchanting story of a woman who was born and bred in a Christian home and community but who could not resist the attraction of Islam and its magnetic pull... (BH)
Like most Muslims, you are afraid to read what the oldest Islamic sources have to say about Muhammad. The truth doest fit with your beliefs so you cling desperately to opinions. It's as if you think that truth is a popularity contest. Until you come to terms with who Muhammad was, according to the Hadith and Qur'an, you will continue to be deceived.
I have presented you with hundreds of passages from your scriptures by topic as a way of dealing with the issues you raised--yet you ignored their message. I gave you an entire book that orders your five oldest sources, including the Qur'an chronologically, setting them all into the context of Muhammad's life. By reading them you'll discover that you are trusting a sexual pervert with your soul--a rapist and pedophile. By reading them you'll discover that you are trusting a pirate with your eternity--a warlord and terrorist. By reading them you'll discover that you are trusting a false god and a false prophet with your life--as the Qur'an is too dimwitted, too poorly written too historically and scientifically errant, too contradictory, too hateful, violent, and sadistic to be from Yahweh.
But you won't do these things. You are more comfortable being deceived. You have made your choice. (Craig)
Sahi Bukhari Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3: ... (BH)
(This Hadith is covered in the opening pages of Chapter 7, With Whom Am I Speaking, in Prophet of Doom.)
Sahi Bukhari Volume 1, Book 1, Number 6: ... (BH)
(This Hadith is covered in the dialog that begins following the page break on page 512 of the chapter entitled The Tormented Terrorist in Prophet of Doom. The particular Hadith is listed under its Tabari nomenclature Tabari VIII:102.)
While I'm glad that you could find a copy of Bukhari, why are you sending these to me? They are all included in POD along with their counterparts in Ishaq, Tabari, and the Qur'an. The first addresses none of the issues presented to you in the Islamic scriptures I shared. In fact, it does you more harm than good. The second is just an opinion--one that conflicts with an ocean of evidence. And why did you choose these and not share passages from the Book of Jihad, or passages about women?
This first Hadith not only sounds like a demonic experience to me, Muhammad agreed. If you had read on, you would have found that Muhammad said that something terrible had happened to him. He feared for his life. He tried to commit suicide. He was terrorized. He said that he was possessed. These are not good things. You'll find this Hadith and many others on the subject of the first revelation in chapter 7, With Whom Am I Speaking? (Craig)
What the Quran says: "Why should ye be divided into two parties about the Hypocrites? Allah hath upset them for their (evil) deeds. Would ye guide those whom Allah hath thrown out of the way? For those whom Allah hath thrown out of the way, never shalt thou find the Way. They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): so take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (from what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty (Of peace), or those who approach you with hearts restraining them from fighting you as well as fighting their own people. If Allah had pleased, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you: therefore if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (guarantees of) peace, then Allah hath opened no way for you (to war against them)." Quran (4:88-90) (BH)
Once again, I ask, what on earth are you doing? I addressed the absurdity of using Zakir's unfounded opinions and the Hindu fellow your quoted as a defense, and you copy and paste portions of the 4th surah, and much of the 33rd surah, from one of the silly Elizabethian English translations. It's as if you think adding a ye and thee will make it sound religious. It's as if you think one outdated-English translation is "accurate" and amplifying translations into contemporary English is inaccurate. It's as if you think that the Qur'an read outside of the context of Muhammad's perverted life makes it easier to understand.
In actuallity, all you did was condemn your prophet and his book. First, I cover the 4th surah and the 33rd surah in the context of Muhammad's life in Prophet of Doom as I do every Medina surah. If you had read the book you are criticising before you attacked, you would have known that. If you had turned to the Index, you would have found: Qur'an Surah 033: Pviii, 293, 311, 320, 348, 397, 449-60, 464, 470, 486, 551-3, 558, 668, 684, SMxxii, SMxxx. And... Qur'an Surah 004: Pvii, Pxxii, 8, 57, 312, 320, 404-5, 419-20, 447, 460, 478, 482-3, 516-28, 545-6, 546, 556, 558, 559, 575, 578, 664, 690, SMxxi, SMxlvii, SMxlviii. I have copied the longest of the sections on the 4th surah (appropriately from the chapter named The Tormented Terrorist) and the 33rd surah (appropriately from the Lustful Libertine chapter) for your edification.
Second, the fact that many words had to be put into parenthesis by the translators in the verses you quoted below for Allah's book to make sense, demonstrates that Allah's book is deficient. Third, even the verses you copied and pasted from the outdated translation, even removed from the context of the Hadith's account of Muhammad's terrorist raids and sexual exploits, prove my point, not yours. Let's examine some of them.
You copied and pasted... "What the Quran says: "Why should ye be divided into two parties about the Hypocrites?"
[During this period, Muhammad, and thus Allah, was fixated on the problem of deserters. Even he couldn't sell Islam on its merits. Muhammad was trying to entice every man in Medina and the Bedoines surrounding Medina to join him in terrorizing and plundering Arabs and Jews. But far too many people thought the fighting, stealing, and terrorizing were bad so Muhammad had his god call the peaceful people with a conscience, who couldn't handle Islam's immoral and criminal attributes "Hypocrites." If you'll read the Medina surahs in the context of Muhammad's life, you'll see this clearly and undeniably.]
"Allah hath upset them for their (evil) deeds. Would ye guide those whom Allah hath thrown out of the way?"
[Now there is a loving and merciful "god" for you. Allah upsets people, and he throws people out of the way.]
"For those whom Allah hath thrown out of the way, never shalt thou find the Way."
[That's one of many reasons that Allah isn't Yahweh. Yahweh was everyone to know him and he will do anything short of deceit and upsetting free will to lead you to Him. Isaiah wrote: "All of us like sheep have gone astray but Yahweh has laid on himself the sins of us all. For by his sacrifice we are saved." Allah, on the other hand, leads people astray and he wants them to stay lost.]
"They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): so take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (from what is forbidden)."
[This also demonstrates the difference between Yahweh and Allah. Christ asks us to love our neighbors as ourself. Allah doesn't even want Muslims to befriend them. In fact, he wants Muslims to kill them...]
"But if they turn renegades [that means they cease to be Muslims], seize them and slay them wherever ye find them;"
[I can't see how you could read this and square it with the line Zakir used to show that the Qur'an was tolerant in the area of religion. How can a book "inspired by God" be this contradictory? And how can a religion that calls itself "tolerant and peaceful" have a verse that orders Muslims to murder anyone who rejects Islam?]
"and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks. Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty (Of peace), or those who approach you with hearts restraining them from fighting you as well as fighting their own people. If Allah had pleased, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you: therefore if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (guarantees of) peace, then Allah hath opened no way for you (to war against them)." Quran (4:88-90)"
Now, here it is the 4th surah in context. (Note, all of this follows the ficticious Abu Sufan meeting you quoted in an earlier message. Too bad you didn't read it.):
There are other nonexistent letters to Persia, Iran, and Iraq but they're repetitive. I'm going to skip them and return to the Qur'an to see how Muhammad is using Allah. Let's begin by reviewing the 4th surah, which the "stallion" named after the women he craved. It opens with yet another version of creation: 4.1 "People! Be careful of your Lord, Who created you from a single being and created its mate of the same (kind) and spread from these two, many men and women."
Returning to his favorite Meccan theme, the orphan wants his property returned. 4.2 "To orphans restore their property…and devour not their substance (by mixing it up) with your own. For this is a great sin." Muhammad was worried that the Meccans were devouring the assets of the Ka'aba Inc. After all, he had raided their caravans, destroying their only other source of income. And being the world's biggest hypocrite, the prophet never returned the property of the orphans he had created by killing their parents and selling them into slavery.
Since this surah was named "Women," it's only fair that men have more than one. 4.3 "If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with orphans, marry women of your choice who seem good to you, two or three or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to do justice (to so many), then only one, or (a slave) that you possess, that will be more suitable. And give the women their dower as a free gift; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, eat it with enjoyment, take it with right good cheer and absorb it (in your wealth)." According to Muhammad, it's even okay to beat them until they "remit the dower of their own good pleasure."
Returning to what Muhammad craved: 4.10 "Those who unjustly eat up the property of orphans, eat up a Fire into their bodies: They will soon endure a Blazing Fire!"
Next we learn that Allah thinks that men are twice as valuable as women. 4.11 "Allah directs you in regard of your Children's (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females…. These are settled portions ordained by Allah." 4.13 "Those are limits imposed by Allah." In future surahs and Hadiths, Team Islam would call women "half wits," too. Muhammad was itching for a "submit and obey" verse, so…4.12 "Those who obey Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens to abide therein and that will be the supreme achievement. But those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits will be admitted to a Fire, to abide therein: And they shall have a humiliating punishment." In other words, if you treat women as equals, you'll burn in hell. 4.15 "If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; if they testify, confine them to houses until death [by starvation] claims them. If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and improve, leave them alone; for Allah is Oft-Returning."
The following words, coming as they do from the most perverted sexual libertine to have ever claimed prophetic status, are hilarious: 4.23 "Prohibited to you 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 born of your wives to whom you have gone in, no prohibition if you have not gone in; (those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins [leaving wives of adopted sons - like his Zayd - fair game]; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-Forgiving. Also (prohibited are) women already married, except slaves who are captives (of war)." Rape is still okay with Rocky.
Since Muhammad's harem included countless concubines and sex slaves, this too is laughable. 4.27 "Allah likes to turn you, but those lost in the lusts of the flesh wish to turn away - far, far away. Allah does wish to lighten your (difficulties): For man was created weak [and he should know]. Believers, you should not usurp unjustly the wealth of others, except it be a trade by mutual consent, and kill not one another. If any do that in rancor and injustice, soon shall We cast them into the Fire: And easy it is for Allah." This admonition is obviously meant to prevent the growing Muslim horde from turning on itself when infidel targets become harder to find. "Plunder and kill anyone you like, except fellow pirates," the chief hypocrite said.
Some verses later, we are reminded that Muhammad was against people and that his god was mean-spirited. 4.41 "We brought from each people a witness, and We brought you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these people! On that day will those who disbelieve and disobey the Messenger desire that the earth were leveled with them in it, but they shall not be able hide from Allah." "Obey me or my god'll get ya." For a religion fixated on mindless ritual and against honest inquiry, this makes no sense: 4.43 "Believers, approach not prayers with a mind befogged or intoxicated until you understand what you utter. Nor when you are polluted, until after you have bathed. If you are ill, or on a journey, or come from answering the call of nature, or you have touched a woman, and you find no water, then take for yourselves clean dirt, and rub your faces and hands. Lo! Allah is Benign, Forgiving." While this is too weird for words, it's troubling that the Qur'an claims women are unclean and polluted - worse than dirt. It's yet another sign suggesting that Muhammad was abused.
Like so much of the Qur'an, there is no intelligent transition from the dirt bath to this attack on Jews. The entire book is random and chaotic; it is the product of a cluttered and tormented mind. 4.44 "Have you not considered those to whom a portion of the Book has been given? They traffic in error and desire that you should go astray. But Allah has full knowledge of your enemies. Of the Jews there are those who displace words from their (right) places, saying, 'We hear and we disobey' with a twist of their tongues they slander Faith…. Allah has cursed them for disbelief." O great Muslim scholars, if the Jews altered their scriptures to slander Islam as Allah claims, where is the evidence, the proof? What books did they alter? How did they change them? When? And why is there overwhelming evidence that they have not been changed in 2,300 years? The foundation of Islam is a lie.
4.47 "O you People of the Book to whom the Scripture has been given, believe in what We have (now) revealed, confirming and verifying what was possessed by you, before We destroy your faces beyond all recognition, turning you on your backs, and curse you as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers, for the decision of Allah Must be executed." Let me see if I understand this. The Jews were given the Scripture Book by Allah, and the Qur'an is new. But it confirms what it condemns. So the Islamic god is going to turn the Jews on their backs and disfigure their faces while cursing them. Forget for a moment that Allah was a rock, and a dumb one at that, and that Muhammad was a sexual pervert, bloodthirsty terrorist, and a pirate; this just isn't up to the level of scripture. I'd be embarrassed if I were Satan.
Having slimed the Jews, it was time for the dark spirit of Islam to attack Christians. 4.48 "Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgives anything else, to whom He please; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin most heinous." If that's true, Muhammad is toast. Remember the Quraysh Bargain and the Satanic Verses? By setting up Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat as partners with Allah, his sin was heinous and unforgivable. 4.50 "Behold! how they invent lies against Allah! That is flagrant sin." Therefore, Muhammad is in hell. Continuing to assault Christians, Allah says: 4.51 "Have you not seen those to whom a portion of the Book has been given? They believe in sorcery and false deities and say of those who disbelieve: these are better guided than those who believe. They are (men) whom Allah has cursed: And those whom Allah has cursed, you will find that they have no savior." The sorcery and false deities accusation is suicidal. Allah claims to be the God of the Bible so he's condemning himself.
Ever delusional, Muhammad's demonic sidekick is alleged to have said that Christians are envious of Muslims because of the spoils Allah had given his jihad fighters. Qur'an 4:54 "Are they jealous and envious what Allah has given them of his bounty? But We had already given the house of Abraham the Book, and conferred upon them a grand kingdom. Some of them believed, and some of them averted their faces from him. And Hell is sufficient for their burning. Those who reject our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire. As often as their skin is burnt and singed, roasted through, We shall change it for fresh skin, so that they may go on tasting the torment." Once again, we find Allah in Hell. This time he is exchanging the skin of his Christian victims so that their torture can be extended. With every word, Allah grows more Satanic. The veil that once kept us from seeing Lucifer behind these words has been singed. We are now peering directly at Satan, the Prince of Darkness, the Whore of Babylon. For those in churches, the media, and politics eager to embrace Islam, beware. You are dealing with the Devil, and he will kill you. It isn't by chance that hell and punishment are the Qur'an's most repeated and vivid themes. It isn't a coincidence that Allah loves death and awaits the Day of Doom. Nor is it an accident that surest path to Allah's Whore House is martyrdom - death killing Christians and Jews. There is a reason the Qur'an obliterates love, trust, peace, freedom, choice and rational inquery, imposing in their place hate, fear, war, submission, obedience, and deception.
Since the rivers in Allah's paradise flow with wine, and the entertainment is virgins, Islamic heaven as demented as Islamic hell. Qur'an 4:57 "But those who believe and do good deeds, We shall soon admit to Gardens, with rivers flowing, their eternal home: Therein shall they have pure companions." For another a reminder as to why Islam - the religion of submission - is incompatible with freedom and democracy, consider this: Qur'an 4:59 "Believers, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority. If you dispute any matter, refer it to Allah and His Messenger. That is best, and most suitable for final determination." There is no freedom of choice in "submit and obey." And the Hadith and Qur'an speak with one voice as it relates to the central mission of the poligious doctrine.Bukhari:V4B52N203 "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'He who obeys me, obeys Allah, and he who disobeys me, disobeys Allah. He who obeys the chief, obeys me, and he who disobeys the chief, disobeys me.'" Without choice there can be no democracy. There can't be a religion either, but that's another matter. Continuing to focus on the prophet's favorite theme: 4.64 "We sent not a messenger but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah." 4.65 "But no, by the Lord, they can have no Faith until they make you (Muhammad) judge in all disputes, and find in their souls no resistance against Your decisions, and accept them with complete submission." 4.66 "If We had ordered them to sacrifice their lives or to leave their homes [to fight], very few of them would have done it: But if they had done what they were told, it would have been best for them, and would have strengthened their (faith)." 4.69 "All who obey Allah and the Messenger are the ones whom Allah has bestowed favors [war booty]."
Each time I read these passages I close my eyes in horror. The fact that the president of the United States sent America's finest men and women into harm 's way to accomplish the impossible is unforgivable. There will never be freedom or democracy in any Islamic state. Sixty percent of Iraqis are Shi' ite Muslims, from which Hezbollah - Allah's Party - is formed. Thirty-five percent are Sunni Muslims. Enough will follow their prophet's and god's orders to assure two things: American's will die and we will fail. I am also horrified that so few people see through this demented hoax. Islam wasn't created to lead men to a god. It was perpetrated to empower a man. Moving on to war we learn: 4.71 "Believers, take your precautions, and advance in detachments or go (on expeditions) together in one troop. There are among your men who would tarry behind (not fighting in Allah's Cause). If a misfortune befalls you, they say: 'Allah favored us in that we were not present among them.'" 4.74 "Let those who fight in Allah's Cause sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fights in the Cause of Allah, whether he is slain or gets victory - We shall give him a great reward." Jihad is all about greed. The Muslim god promises booty for those who live and paradise for those who die. It's little wonder there are so many suicide bombers selling this life for the hereafter. Sadly, they lose both.
Muhammad spoke as if he were Allah.Bukhari:V4B52N44 "A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, 'Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad in reward.' He replied, 'I do not find such a deed.'" If the best thing a Muslim can do is fight Jihad in Allah's Cause then Islam is a call to war. Bukhari:V4B52N50 "The Prophet said, 'A single endeavor of fighting in Allah' s Cause in the forenoon or in the afternoon is better than the world and whatever is in it.'" Jihad is, therefore, more important than all of the Five Pillars of Islam combined.Bukhari:V4B52N46 "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid [Muslim fighter] in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.'" If you die, you get heavenly booty. If you live, you get earthly booty.
Islam is a religion to die for:Bukhari:V4B52N53 "The Prophet said, 'Nobody who dies and finds Paradise would wish to come back to this life 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 get killed again in Allah's Cause.'" "Martyrdom," "fighting," "Allah's Cause," and "Jihad" are synonymous.Bukhari:V4B52N54 "The Prophet said, 'By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for the believers who do not want me to leave them, I would certainly and always go forth in army-units setting out for Jihad. I would love to be martyred in Allah's Cause and then get resurrected and get martyred again only to be resurrected so that I could get martyred once more.'" But like Imams today, Allah's prophet preferred to send boys out to do his dirty work.
Returning to the Qur'an, we don't miss a beat. 4.75 "What reason have you that you should not fight in Allah's Cause?" Another translation says: "What is wrong with you that you do not fight for Allah?" 4.76 "Those who believe fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of idols: So fight the allies of Satan: feeble indeed is the plot of Satan." This is why the Islamic world refers to America as the "Great Satan." And now that you know the root from which Satan was derived - Adversary - it all makes sense. America is perceived to be a nation comprised of Christians and Jews. We are Lucifer's, and thus Islam's, adversary. Islam is ugly, not complicated.
Speaking for the dark spirit of Islam, Muhammad reminds us how much he despises peaceful Muslims. He also confirms that "fear" in the Islamic sense does not mean reverence, but fright. 4.77 "Have you not seen those to whom it was said: Withhold your hands from fighting, perform the prayer and pay the zakat. But when orders for fighting were issued, a party of them feared men as they ought to have feared Allah. They say: 'Our Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?'" The Qur'an ordains Muslims to fight, whether they like it or not. War is compulsory. The enemy is all non-Muslims. The timeline is forever.
Allah is going to kill the pacifists, so they might as well fight. 4.78 "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?" Arabs recognized that evil flowed directly from Muhammad and his dark spirit. What's more, the Qur'an agrees. The man who folded while negotiating with a Meccan merchant claims he's Allah's messenger to all mankind. But first, Allah must contradict himself. 4.79 "Whatever good happens to you is from Allah; but whatever evil happens to you is from yourself. We have sent (Muhammad) as a Messenger to (instruct) mankind. And enough is Allah for a witness." How, pray tell, is Allah a sufficient witness? The Black Stone never spoke, performed a miracle, or issued a prophecy. This feeble attempt at scripture deserves an "F." The subject matter is ugly - overly focused on demented torments, violence, and war. The message is immoral - approving thievery, murder, kidnapping, the slave trade, rape, incest, and even genocide. The book is plagiarized, and poorly, I might add. And it's jumbled together without context or chronology. It is only a witness in that it exposes the fraudulent nature of Muhammad, Allah, and Islam. 4.80 "He who obeys the Messenger obeys Allah." If it weren't for Muhammad, Allah would be unknown today. He was merely a stone to be thrown.
Next, we are reminded that prophet and pal were losing their grip. Muslims were beginning to think for themselves. 4.81 "They have obedience on their lips; but when they leave you (Muhammad), a section of them plots things that are very different from what you commanded them. So keep clear of them." The reason the first Muslims feigned support was obvious. It's the same reason the vast majority of Germans and Russians pretended to be Nazis and Communists. Dissent was met with imprisonment and death. And this is why we must care enough about "bad" Muslims to free them from "good" ones. 4.82 "Do they not consider and ponder the Qur'an? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy and incongruity." The 78th verse says: "All things are from Allah." The 79th contradicts it saying: "Whatever good happens to you is from Allah; but whatever evil happens to you is from yourself." The Qur'an is so rife with contradictions, it has a verse explaining how to deal with them. "Whenever We cancel a verse or throw it into oblivion, We bring one which is better." That's why the "book" warns: "Do not question the Qur'an. There was a party of you who questioned it and as a result, they lost their faith."
Much of the Qur'an was anachronistic - only pertaining to Muhammad, focusing on his critics, his sexual indulgences, his financial appetite, and lust for power. Muslims are ordered to submit and obey a dead man. Which means the Qur'an only served Muhammad; it was "revealed" for his benefit. This next verse is one of a thousand examples. 4.83 "When there comes to them some matter regarding war, they discuss it. If only they had referred it to the Messenger, or to those charged with authority, the proper investigators would have understood it. Were it not for the grace of Allah, most of you would have fallen into Satan's clutches." Along these lines the Noble Qur'an references this Hadith:Bukhari:V9B92N384 "Allah's Apostle said, 'Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise, and whoever disobeys me will not.'"
Muhammad's never-ending war marched on. 4.84 "Then fight (O Muhammad) in Allah's Cause - you are only responsible for yourself. Incite the believers to fight along with you." How can there be no contradictions in the Qur'an if five verses earlier we read: "We have sent (Muhammad) as a Messenger to mankind," and now he's "only responsible for himself?" And how can Islam be peaceful if its scripture says: "Incite the believers to fight along with you?" The pacifist uprising became so severe, the peaceful Muslims had to be kicked out of the way. 4.88 "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." Once again, we see Allah imitating Satan. 4.89 "They wish that you would reject Faith, as they have, and thus be on the same footing: Do not be friends with them until they leave their homes in Allah's Cause. But [and this is a hell of a but...] if they turn back from Islam, becoming renegades, seize them and kill them wherever you find them." The book that preached: 2.256 "There should be no compulsion in religion," just said "if they turn back from Islam, becoming renegades, seize them and kill them wherever you find them." If that isn't a contradiction, the word needs to be redefined.
This verse is among the most heinous ever attributed to god. It is the ason Islam has managed to enslave a billion people. If a Muslim rejects Islam, he is labeled a renegade, and must be seized and killed on direct orders from Allah. It's hard to imagine a dogma - religious or political - so unappealing it has to murder those who leave, just to keep others in line. Moving on we find Muhammad attempting to justify his cowardice, capitulation, and abdication at Hudaybiyah. Allah says the treaty was an interim strategy designed to deceive the enemy - to lull them into a false sense of peace. 4.90 "Except those who join a group between you and whom there is a treaty, or (those who become) weary of fighting you. If Allah had willed, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. Therefore if they withdraw from you and wage not war, and send you (guarantees of) peace, then Allah has not given you a way (to war) against them." The purpose of terror is to cause people to become so "weary of fighting" they surrender. That's what is happening in Israel today. But if a people desiring peace are perceived to be mischievous, Allah commands his militants to kill them. 4.91 "You will find others who, while wishing to live in peace and being safe from you to gain the confidence of their people; thrown back to mischief headlong; therefore if they do not withdraw from you, and offer you peace besides restraining their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and against these We have given you a clear sanction and authority." So if you wish to live in peace, but are perceived as being mischievous (i.e., non-Muslim), Allah has given his Jihad warriors "a clear sanction and authority to seize and kill" you. Islam is an equal opportunity hater. Even today, "good" Muslims fight and kill more "bad" Muslims than they do infidels. As such, they must be either accident prone or mistaken. 4.92 "Never should a believer kill a believer unless (it be) by mistake." 4.93 "If a man kills a believer intentionally, he will be cast into Hell, to abide therein. The wrath, damnation, and curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him." For the hundredth time we are reminded that "Allah's Cause" is "Holy War," better known as "Jihad." 4.94 "Believers, when you go abroad to fight wars in the Cause of Allah, investigate carefully, and say not to anyone who greets you: 'You are not a believer!' Coveting the chance profits of this life (so that you may despoil him). With Allah are plenteous spoils and booty." Muhammad has bribed his mercenaries to fight for booty. He has demonstrated how easy it is to rob unarmed civilians. So now he is afraid that Muslims will loot everyone they meet. While loot is fine, according to Allah, there is more to destroying a man than just plundering his possessions. Muhammad and Allah were looking at the bigger picture. A world submissive to them was a far greater prize. "Good" Muslims fight. 4.95 "Not equal are believers who sit home and receive no hurt and those who fight in Allah's Cause with their wealth and lives. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who fight with their possessions and bodies to those who sit home. Those who fight He has distinguished with a special reward." A Muslim Hadith explains the verse: Muslim:C40B20N4676 "Believers who sit home and those who go out for Jihad in Allah's Cause are not equal." Fundamental Islam, the Islam of Allah, Muhammad, and the Qur'an preaches Jihad. Islam was born violent and weaned on blood. Muhammad may have felt a momentary twinge of guilt for having banished the Jews. So he had his god say that that the earth was big and the Jews ought to have migrated out of Medina on their own. But since they didn't, they're off to hell. 4.97 "Surely those whom the angels cause to die while they are wrong, shall say: 'In what plight were you?' They say: 'We were weak in the earth.' 'Was not Allah's earth spacious, so that you should have migrated?' So their abode is hell, an evil resort." The prophet's last words were: "Banish the Jews from Arabia." Allah wants Jihadists to live off the land. 4.100 "He who leaves his home in Allah's Cause finds abundant resources and many a refuge. Should he die as a refugee for Allah and His Messenger his reward becomes due and sure with Allah. When you travel through the earth there is no blame on you if you curtail your worship for fear unbelievers may attack you. In truth the disbelievers are your enemy." Either fighting is more important than religion or this religion is about fighting. But either way, that's disconcerting because Muslims see all non-Muslims as their enemy. In Islam, religion and war are inseparable. 4.102 "When you (Prophet) lead them in prayer, let some stand with you, taking their arms with them. When they finish their prostrations, let them take positions in the rear. And let others who have not yet prayed come - taking all precaution, and bearing arms. The Infidels wish, if you were negligent of your arms, to assault you in a rush. But there is no blame on you if you put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because you are ill; but take (every) precaution. For the Unbelieving Infidels Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment." Translated: Thugs who murder for god and booty need to watch their backs. After a while, such thugs become known as terrorists - and people start disliking them. Islam's war is never-ending. 4.104 "And do not relent in pursuing the enemy. If you are suffering hardships, they are suffering similar hardships; but you have hope from Allah, while they have none." So long as Islam exists they will never relent. Religions empower men, giving them authority over others. 4.115 "If anyone contradicts or opposes the Messenger [not Allah] after guidance has been conveyed to him, and follows a path other than the way [of Muhammad], We shall burn him in Hell!" Trying to make amends for the Satanic Verses, Muhammad recited: 4.116 "Surely Allah does not forgive setting up partners with Him; and whoever associates anything with Allah, he indeed strays off into remote error. They call but upon female deities. They call but upon Satan, the persistent rebel!" Muhammad admitted to having been duped by Satan. His crime was associating "female deities" with Allah. Since such sins are unforgivable, I wonder if he's enjoying hell as much as Allah seems to? And while this is a fatal problem for Islam, Muhammad didn't learn his lesson. Rather than calling Allah's daughters "idols" or "false gods," he just called them "deities" again. Allah is the spirit of deceit. 4.118 "Allah did curse him. He said: 'I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires; I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and to deface the (fair) nature created by Allah.' Whoever, forsaking Allah, takes Satan for a patron, they are a loser. Satan makes them promises, and creates in them false desires; but Satan's promises are nothing but deception. (His dupes) will have their dwelling in Hell, and from it they will find no way of escape." Satan doesn' t create false desires; he preys on carnal and vain desires. He defaces mankind, not cattle. But since Islam is war and war is deception, how are Muslims to differentiate between Allah and Satan? In a line that would feel equally at home in the Communist Manifesto, Mao's Little Red Book, or Mein Kampf, Allah instructs Muslims to rat on their parents. 4.135 "Believers, stand out for justice as witnesses for Allah even against yourselves, your parents, your family, and relatives whether it be against rich or poor…. Allah is aware of what you do." This verse serves godless tyrants and their regimes. It's neither civil nor religious. But it helps us understand why Islam and Nazism embraced and why Muslims later aligned themselves with the Communists. Putting himself on par with the god he created, Muhammad tells Muslims to believe in him. 4.136 "O Believers! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the Scripture which He has sent to His Messenger, and the Scripture which He revealed to those before. Any who denies Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far astray." Setting aside for a moment that he was a pervert and a terrorist, how are Muslims to believe in the "scripture revealed before" if it is the antithesis of the "scripture revealed to Muhammad?" And if there was an "uncorrupted" version of the Torah, Psalms, and Gospels, why didn't the Allah/Muhammad brain trust provide Muslims with a copy? It's evident that Muhammad lost his grip on the Medina Muslims. Many came to think as little of him as the Meccans had before. 4.137 "Those who believe, then reject faith, then believe and reject faith, and go on increasing in unbelief, Allah will never pardon them, nor guide them. To the Hypocrites give the glad tidings that there is for them a grievous penalty, a painful doom." The "glad tidings" line is especially perverted. It reveals Muhammad's deeply disturbed character. 4.140 "You have been commanded in the Book that whenever you hear Verses of Allah denied, derided, ridiculed, or mocked [as is the only reasoned response], do not sit with them and engage them in this talk or you will be no different from them. Indeed, Allah will collect the Hypocrites and Infidels together and put them all in Hell." Those who heard Muhammad's feeble, immoral, and violent "scriptures" directly from his lips denied, derided, ridiculed, and mocked them. So Muhammad banned debate. Even to this y, any Muslim who criticizes Islam is imprisoned or murdered. If Islam were open to scrutiny there would be no Muslims. To survive, the poligious doctrine requires its tyrannical dictators to use draconian measures to repress freedom of thought, debate, speech, press, and religion. It's why Islam is wholly incompatible with freedom and democracy. It is why Islamic governments are the most repressive regimes on earth. Islam thrives in submission and ignorance. Therefore, we must defy this ungodly ban and free Muslims from Islam if we hope to free ourselves from the terror it breeds. And the best way to free billions from this lie is to expose it. Truth is lethal to Islam. William Muir, a man considered to be one of Islam' s foremost scholars, agrees: "The Qur'an is the most stubborn enemy of Civilization, Liberty, and Truth which the world has yet known." Those who knew Muhammad best rejected him. They only feigned belief in order to avoid being killed by his goons. 4.142 "The Hypocrites try to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them. When they stand up performing the prayer, they stand sluggishly, to be seen, but they are mindful of Allah but little. (They are) distracted in mind even in the midst of it, swaying between this and that, one group or the another. Those who Allah causes to go astray and err will not find a way. Believers, take not for friends unbelieving infidels rather than believers [because rational thought is contagious]. Do you want to offer Allah an open proof against you? The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire." There's a lot of bad stuff in this passage. First, "Allah deceives." "Those who Allah causes to go astray and err will not find a way." We've been bombarded with this concept so often we've become callous to its implications. God by his very nature is incapable of deceit. The moment he becomes dishonest, he ceases to be good. If God is not true, there is no value in knowing him. And since the Islamic god deceives and leads men astray he can never be trusted, as there is no way of knowing when he is lying. Second, dogmas that require their subjects to feign support in order to avoid death and imprisonment are acknowledging defeat. They are admitting that given the freedom to choose, people would opt out of their repressive regime. Third, hypocrites are defined as Muslims who don't obey the messenger's orders to leave their homes to fight in Allah's Cause. In this verse the pacifists have descended a notch. They have gone from being "the most vile of animals," to "the lowest depths of the fire." If you are a "peace-loving" Muslim, you may want to find a new religion. You're in a lose-lose situation. If Islam is true, you're going to hell. If Islam isn't true, you' re being deceived. Lastly, truth is so devastating to Islam, association with non-Muslims must be prohibited and condemned. Violating this restrictive order provides "open proof" that Muslims are not sufficiently submissive. This next verse has an odd beginning. 4.147 "What can Allah gain by your punishment…" I don't know, and the verse doesn't say. But it's a good question. The Islamic world seems to have ignored this one: 4.148 "Allah does not love the public utterance of hurtful, harsh speech unless (it be) by one to whom injustice has been done." I guess every Muslim in every Islamic hate parade feels that he or she has been injured. Fact is, they have: but only by Muhammad and Islam. Returning to those pesky "bad" Muslims…4.150 "Those who deny Allah and His Messengers, and (those who) wish to separate Allah from His Messengers, saying: 'We believe in some but reject others:' And (those who) wish to take a course in between; They are the real unbelievers; and we have prepared for unbelievers a humiliating punishment, a shameful doom." Methinks our boy doth protest too much. He's losing control, and it shows. The first Muslims, those who had the "benefit" of Muhammad's preaching, had to be threatened to swallow the bitter hatred, violence, and immorality of Islam. They knew that ere was something very, very wrong with the medicine he was dispensing. It appears that the fine folks of Medina asked for a little proof, a miracle perhaps, to show that these situational "scriptures" were from God, not merely Muhammad. 4.153 "The people of the Book ask you to cause (an actual) book to descend to them from heaven. Indeed they asked Moses for an even greater (miracle), for they said: 'Show us Allah in public,' but they were dazed for their presumption. Allah's storm of thunder and lightning seized them for their wickedness." In other words, "No miracles for you. And if you ask again, my god is going to frighten you with a thunderstorm like Moses' God did on Mt. Sinai." As an aside, the request for an actual book was astute. Not a word of the Qur'an had been scribed on a scroll. The Qur'an was little more than a stream of situational recitals thinly disguised to serve Muhammad's agenda. The next series of verses attacks Jews and assails Christ's mission. In the 154th verse the Covenant was described as "the raising of the Mount over the Jews," and them becoming Muslims by "prostrating themselves in submission." In the 155th verse Jews were condemned for "killing the Prophets unjustly." Then in the next they were berated for "uttering a grave false charge of illegal sexual intercourse against Mary." Yet in the 157th Allah contradicted himself by having Jews say: "'We killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary,' but they killed him not, nor crucified him. But it appeared so to them (as the resemblance of Jesus was put over another man and they killed that man). Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself. Those who differ with this version are full of doubts. They have no knowledge and follow nothing but conjecture. For surely they killed him not." As we ponder why Muhammad would lie about such a thing, we must deal with the preposterousness of the allegation. Six hundred years after the single most life- and civilization-altering event in human history, an illiterate and immoral Arab terrorist said it didn't happen and that any who differ have no knowledge. That's like the Soviets saying that Americans didn't walk on the moon simply because the truth didn't fit their agenda. The evidence for Christ's crucifixion is overwhelming. You can argue that he wasn't divine or that he wasn't resurrected but not that he didn't die on a cross believing that he was sacrificing himself for our sins. For that matter, you can't say that "Jesus" was a prophet, or even a great moral teacher, but wasn't God, because he claimed to be God. If he wasn't God, he was a fool at best and more likely a lunatic and charlatan. Moreover, the Jews never claimed to have "crucified the Messiah" because: (a) the Romans crucified him, and (b) the Jewish clerics who wanted him dead didn't recognize him as the Messiah. Simply stated, the Qur'an's position is impossible, and thus it is untrue. Muhammad's motivation, however, was transparent. If Christ's sacrifice on the cross reconciled man with God, the Arab prophet was irrelevant. If even one percent of the Gospel account was accurate, Muhammad was a complete fraud, the most vile liar to have ever lived. And then there was Muhammad's boss, Lucifer. If Christ was not crucified, he killed two birds with one stone. Judaism and Christianity were destroyed. Psalm 22 begins with the Messiah's last words on the cross. It then describes the torment of crucifixion in excruciating detail, five hundred years before the Assyrians invented it. Yet we are told that the Messiah's sacrifice was for all time, applying to those who were yet unborn. It says that all would eventually come to serve him as God. Isaiah 53 is equally specific. Speaking of the importance of the Messiah's sacrifice, the prophet proclaimed: "He was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities, and chastised for our well being. By his scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but Yahweh has caused the iniquity of us all to fall upon him." If that didn't happen as predicted outside the walls of rusalem on Passover, Yahweh is a liar and there is no savior. Since God cannot lie, Yahweh would not be God and the Messiah would be irrelevant. It' s Satan's ultimate fantasy. By deceiving us he achieves his agenda, which is our damnation. Skipping ahead, we rediscover Allah's dependence on Jews for meaningful Qur' anic content. 4.163 "We have sent you inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him. We sent inspiration to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the [twelve Jewish] Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms. Of some messengers We have already told you the story; of others We have not; and to Moses Allah spoke directly." Funny thing, though; Moses didn't mention Allah. Nor did any of the other "messengers." I wonder why? Then, demonstrating his disdain for those he plagiarized, Muhammad said on behalf of Allah: 4.168 "Those who reject [Islamic] Faith and deal in wrong, Allah will not forgive them nor guide them to any path except the way to Hell, to dwell therein forever. And this to Allah is easy." Regurgitating Lucifer's hatred for Jews and Christians was the easiest thing Allah ever did. Leading mankind astray and directing us to hell was all in a day's work for the demented spirit of Islam. Then the terrorist pirate and immoral libertine said: 4.171 "O People of the Book! Do not exaggerate in your religion; nor speak lies of Allah. The Messiah, Christ Jesus, the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not 'Trinity.' Cease and Desist: (it is) better for you: for Allah is one Ilah (God). (Far it is removed from him of) having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. The Messiah is proud to be a slave of Allah, as are the angels, those nearest. Those who disdain His worship and are arrogant. He will gather them all together unto Himself to (answer)…. He will punish with a painful doom; Nor will they find, besides Allah, any to protect or save them." Wow! That was ugly. Not only does Allah demote Christ and rebuke the Trinity, he claims to be the lone God of Creation. The only thing needed to make Satan's wish list complete was to gather Christians and Jews together and roast them in hell. The word's most heinous hater of Jews and Christians went on to say that the Messiah will condemn them: 4.159 "And there is none of the People of the Book but will believe in him (Jesus as only a messenger of Allah and a human being) before his (Jesus') death. He will be a witness against them." 4.160 "For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful for them certain (foods) in that they hindered many from Allah's Way, that they took usury, though they were forbidden, and that they devoured men's wealth on false pretenses, We have prepared for those among them who reject [Islamic] Faith a painful doom." Stunning! The Jews are being condemned to hell for charging interest on loans they made to the Muslims in Medina. Yet the Muslims who stole their homes, robbed their businesses, confiscated their land, slaughtered their men, raped their women, and sold their children into slavery are in paradise conquering virgins. Based upon this I think it's fair to say that Islam is without peer. It's the most dimwitted, deceitful, demonic, intolerant, immoral, and violent dogma ever perpetrated on mankind.
Now you turn your attention to the 33rd surah--a chapter devoted to justifying incest, terror, and theivery. So that you might enjoy its full effect, I have elected to provide you with Hadith passages that immediately preceed the "revelation" of the 33rd surah along with the surah itself set into the context of the life of the man who "revealed" it.
I would also like you to read what I wrote in the Letter to the Reader about your sources: These official works include the Sira, Ta'rikh, Hadith, and Qur'an. Ishaq's Sira, or biography, called Sirat Rasul Allah, provides the sole account of Muhammad's life and the formation of Islam written within 200 years of the prophet's death. While the character, message, and deeds portrayed within its pages are the antithesis of Christ's and his disciples, the Sira's chronological presentation is similar in style to the Christian Gospels. The Ta'rikh is the oldest, most trusted, and comprehensive history of Islam's formation and Muhammad's example, called Sunnah. It was written by Tabari. His History of al-Tabari is formatted like the Bible. It begins with Islamic creation and ends with the acts of Muhammad's companions. Tabari is a compilation of Hadith quotes and Qur'an passages. As such, it provides the best skeleton upon which to flesh out the character of Muhammad and the nature of fundamental Islam. A Hadith is an oral report from Muhammad or his companions. Muslims believe that Hadith were inspired by Allah, making them scripture. The most revered Collection was compiled in a topical arrangement by Bukhari. Allah's Book, the Qur'an, lacks context and chronology, so to understand it, readers are dependent upon the Sira, Ta'rikh, and Hadith. All that can be known about Muhammad's deeds, means, motives, god, and scripture is enshrined in these books. In their pages you will see them as they saw themselves. My only point of departure from Ishaq and Tabari will be the comprehensive review of the early Meccan surahs, a period in which they had very little to say. Our paths will join again as we approach Islam' s midlife crisis: the Quraysh Bargain, Satanic Verses, Night's Journey, and Pledge of Aqaba - a declaration of war against all mankind. At this point, the Sira, Ta'rikh, and Hadith speak more clearly than the Qur'an. So that there will be no confusion, I have set passages from Islam's scriptures in bold-faced type. When quoting from the Qur'an and Hadith, I have elected to use a blended translation. No language transfers perfectly - one word to another. Five of my twelve translations of the Qur'an were combined to create the most accurate conveyance of the message possible. However, the writing quality is so poor, the proofreaders of this manuscript suggested that I help Allah and Muhammad out by cleaning up their grammar, punctuation, and verbosity. So for clarity and readability, I have trimmed their unruly word patterns and meaningless repetitions, being careful not to alter the meaning or message of any passage. Insertions within parenthesis (like this) were added by the Arabic translators to fill in missing words or to clarify the text. Insertions within brackets [like is] represent my observations. I have elected to present Islam's original source material in juxtaposition to my evaluation of its veracity. This format is similar to that used by the first English translators of Mein Kampf as they attempted to warn America about the dangers lurking in Hitler's manifesto. They, as I, found it necessary to hold the author accountable. A great deal was at stake then, as it is today. The last time the world was ignorant of such a hateful and violent doctrine, 55 million people died. If we don't shed our ignorance of Islam, many more will perish.
This is what preceeds the Prophet of Doom review of the 33rd surah:
Moving on, it's time for another assassination.Tabari VII:147 "Amr was sent by Muhammad to kill Abu Sufyan [the Quraysh leader and merchant]. The Prophet said, 'Go to Abu Sufyan and kill him.' …When I entered Mecca I had a dagger ready to slay anybody who laid hold of me. My Ansar companion asked, 'Should we start by circumambulating the Ka'aba seven times and praying two rak'ahs?' I said, 'I know the Meccans better than you do.' But he kept pestering me until in the end we went to the Ka'aba, circumambulated it seven times, and prayed." A good Muslim is a religious assassin. The Quraysh understood the corrosive influence of Islam better than we do.Tabari VII:148 "One of the Meccans recognized me and shouted, 'That is Amr!' They rushed after us, saying, 'By Allah, Amr has not come here for any good purpose! He has come for some evil reason.' Amr had been a cutthroat and a desperado before accepting Islam." So naturally, he was attracted to Muhammad and inspired by Islam. "The Meccans set out in pursuit so I said, 'Let's get out of here! This is what I was afraid of! We will never reach Abu Sufyan now, so save your own skin.' We left at full speed, took to the hills, hiding in a cave. In this way we gave them the slip." A life was spared because the Quraysh understood the nature of Islam. They recognized their enemy and correctly profiled their behavior. While not all Muslims are terrorists, virtually all terrorists are Muslims. This should tell us something about Islam. According to independent surveys, eighty-five percent of terrorist acts worldwide are directly attributable to the Islamic faith. Yet Muslims represent less than twenty percent of the world's population. Since the militants are called "a radical minority" let' s say that only twenty percent of Muslims are "good" ones - jihad fighters in Allah's Cause. If that's true, four percent of the world's population takes Islam seriously. One out of twenty-five humans emulate Muhammad and follow Allah's orders as revealed in the Qur'an and Hadith. These men and women are 2,000% more lethal than the rest of us.Tabari VII:148 "Amr said, 'Let's wait here until the cry has died down. They are sure to hunt for us tonight and tomorrow." In shades of Mogadishu, the Meccans sent too few men into harm's way. "I was still in the cave when Uthman bin Malik came riding proudly on his horse. He reached the entrance to our cave and I said to my Ansar companion, 'If he sees us, he will tell everyone in Mecca.' So I went out and stabbed him with my dagger. He gave a shout and the Meccans came to him while I went back to my hiding place. Finding him at the point of death, they said, 'By Allah we knew that Amr came for no good purpose.' The death of their companion impeded their search for us, for they carried him away." Murder number one. "We remained in the cave for two days until the pursuit had died down and then went out to Khubayb's cross. My companion said, 'Shall we take Khubayb down from his cross?' I went to the cross and untied Khubayb [again]. I carried him on my back and had gone about forty paces when a guard spotted me. I threw Khubayb down, and will never forget the sound his body made when it fell. I managed to throw the guard off, ran to my companion, mounted his camel, and went to the Prophet to tell him what had happened." A foiled assassination attempt and an isolated murder may seem unworthy of the attention I'm affording them. But they were important to Muhammad, Ishaq, and Tabari, and thus to fundamental Islam. And by sharing every episode recorded by Islam's first biographer and historian, leaving nothing of consequence out, I am confirming a profound truth. Islam, as it was taught and lived by Muhammad, was a terrorist dogma.Tabari VII:149 "On the way I went into a cave with my bow and arrows. While I was in it a one-eyed man from the Banu Bakr came in driving some sheep. He said, 'Who's there?' I said [lied], 'I'm a Banu Bakr.' 'So am I.' Then he laid down next to me, and raised his voice in song: 'I will not be a Muslim and will not believe in the faith of the Muslims.' I said, 'You will soon see!' Before long the Bedouin went to sleep and started snoring. So I killed him in the most dreadful way that anybody has ever killed. I leant over him, struck the end of my bow into his good eye, and thrust it down until it came out the back of his neck. After that I rushed out like a wild beast and took flight." Murder number two. "I came to the village of Naqi and recognized two Meccan spies. I called for them to surrender. They said no so I shot and arrow and killed one, and then I tied the other up and took him to Muhammad." Murder number three. Kidnapping number one. The Muslims were having fun.Tabari VII:150 "I had tied my prisoner's thumbs together with my bowstring. The Messenger of Allah looked at him and laughed so that his back teeth could be seen. Then he questioned me and I told him what had happened. 'Well done!' he said, and prayed for me to be blessed." These are the ominous words of the Islamic Hadith, the only words written about this man and his religion within centuries of his death. And they are perverse. Three cold-blooded murders and a hostage taking earned a jovial laugh and a hearty, "Well done!" Although I have shared this with you before, it bears repeating. While some Hadith may be exaggerated and some may be untrue, it doesn't matter. All that counts is that this is the sum total of what is known about the Muhammad of Islam. I have reported every significant event recorded byTabari and Ishaq - the earliest, most respected, and comprehensive chroniclers of the Islamic faith. Therefore, what you have been reading is all Muslims know about their prophet. And that, I dare say, explains their behavior. Tabari VII:150 "In the month of Ramadhan (February 626), the Messenger married Zaynab bt. Khuzaymah. She had been married to Tufayl, who had divorced her." I believe that makes her the fifth member of the prophet's collection. Tabari VII:151/Ishaq:433 "In this year there occurred the disaster of the expedition sent out by the Messenger to Bi'r Ma'unah. The polytheists had charge of the pilgrimage that year [confirming that the Hajj was pagan]. Abu Bara (One-Who-Plays-With-Spears), the chief of the Banu Amir, came to the Prophet and presented a gift. Muhammad said, 'I do not accept presents from pagans, so become a Muslim if you want me to accept it.'" He was willing to steal from any Abu, Tufayl, or Harith, but would not accept diplomatic gifts. Further, there is no empirical evidence that shows men behave better who worship one false god rather than many of them. "Muhammad expounded Islam to Abu Bara and invited him to accept it. He explained its advantages for him and Allah's promises to believers. He recited the Qur'an. Abu did not accept Islam. He said, Muhammad, this affair of yours is most excellent. If you were to send some of your Companions to my people to call them to your religious affair, I would hope that they would respond.'" This is great stuff. Muhammad presented the "advantages for him" to convert his subjects to Islam: "It's the perfect tool for a chief like you," der prophet undoubtedly said. Muhammad's religotic was designed to empower dictators. This is why the poligious doctrine survives after fourteen centuries. Islam wasn't called submission for nothing. Religion is an effective tool in the wrong hands. Allah's prophet reviewed the dark spirit's "promises:" booty for fighters, loot for the living and virgins for the victims; what's not to like? But, Chief Abu wouldn't accept Islam. Instead, he wanted his people converted. And that is the essence of the doctrine of submission. Even today, the tyrannical despots who rule the Islamic world aren't Muslims - their people are. The "religion" is used to control the masses, to fleece them for benefit of cleric and king. Chief Abu knew that Islam would only be to his advantage if his people were coerced into submission. Tabari VII:152/Ishaq:434 "The Apostle was afraid to send his people to Abu's tribe for fear they would kill them. But Chief Abu gave Muhammad a surety [collateral guarantee] so the he sent Mundhir (The-Quick-to-Seek-Death) with forty to seventy riders. After halting at Bi'r Ma'unah, they sent Haram to Amir Tufayl with a letter from Muhammad. When Haram arrived, Amir killed him. Then he set out and took the Muslims by surprise, surrounding them while they were encamped. On seeing them, the Muslims snatched up their swords and fought until they were all killed except Ka'b. The enemy left him at the point of death." Remember, this is after Allah had revealed the 8th and 3rd surahs, so the Muslims believed that they had to fight to the death. As we pick up the story, word gets back to the prophet. Ishaq:434 "Amr and an Ansari were out grazing camels and saw vultures circling around the camp. They went to investigate and saw their Companions lying in their blood. The Ansari said, 'What do you think we should do?' Amr answered, 'Go tell the prophet.'" But they were spotted and the Ansari was killed. Amr was taken prisoner. He lied, we're told, "taking an oath on his mother's life," so they set him free. Amr hightailed it "towards Medina, until, when he was at Qarqarah, two Banu Amir men halted near him in the shade. They had a compact of protection with Allah's Messenger which Amr knew nothing. Amr waited until they were asleep. Then he killed them, thinking that he had taken vengeance for the Muslims who had been slain. When he came to the Messenger, e told him what had happened. The Prophet said, 'You have killed men for whom I shall have to pay blood-money.'" Muhammad's soul wasn't troubled by the news that innocent men had been urdered. His only worry was that coin was going to slip from his pockets. Islam was never about saving souls; it was about stealing money. In the midst of these Islamic terrorist raids, assassinations, murders, and kidnappings for ransom, the next headline appears somewhat benign. It reads: "Expulsion of the Banu Nadir." Tabari VII:156/Ishaq:437 "In the fourth year of the Islamic Era the Prophet expelled the Banu Nadir [a large Jewish community in Yathrib] from their homes. The cause of this was that Amr killed two men to whom had been given a promise of protection by the Apostle. Their chief wrote Muhammad asking him for blood-money. So the Prophet turned towards the Nadir [Jews] to seek their help in the payment of the blood money. With him were Bakr, Umar, and Ali." The Muslims had raided a caravan just north of Mecca. Muhammad's adoptive son grabbed another east of Medina. They allegedly "earned" huge ransoms "selling" the Badr captives back to their families. They had plundered the Qaynuqa Jews, stealing their gold, armor, businesses, and homes. So, how could the pirate chest be bare? The answer is as old as time. Those who steal don't value anything. They go on binges and need ever-larger fixes. Easy come; easy go. So turban in hand, Muhammad had to go begging, this time to the kin of those he had previously plundered. Wouldn't you like to have been a fly on the wall? Tabari VII:157/Ishaq:437 "When the Prophet came to ask for their help in the payment of the blood-money, the Jews said, 'Yes, Abu al-Qasim [Muhammad]. Of course, we will give you the help you want in the way you want it.' Then they spoke privately with one another… [Before we listen to what Islam wants us to believe the Jews said in "private," ask yourself, how did the Muslims know? And since they couldn't have known, what were they trying to accomplish by pretending to know?] Muhammad had gone outside and was sitting by a house wall. The Jews said, 'Who will go on the roof of this house and drop a stone, relieving us of him?'" The Muslim sages were trying to ustify the exceedingly hostile behavior their prophet was about to exhibit. I do not doubt that the Jews might have wanted the prophet dead. I would have wanted him dead. He was a menace to society - a violent terrorist and common criminal. However, this plot is absurd. There is no chance Allah's guy, the grand pontiff of Medina, was sitting in the dirt against the wall of a Jewish home. And there was no chance someone had a stone big enough to kill a man sitting on a thatched (and thus pitched) roof. Further, the Nadir were prosperous farmers. If they wanted to execute Muhammad they would have used an implement more lethal than a stone. Ishaq:437 "Amr Jihash, who was one of the Jews, came forward and said, 'I am your man.' He went up to the roof to drop the stone as arranged. Muhammad was with Bakr, Umar, and Ali [future Caliphs all], and the news of what the people intended came to him from Heaven. He got up and said, 'Do not leave until I come to you.'" This is Ali's second run as stooge. A few years earlier he had been asked to wear the prophet's pajamas, laying in wait for assassins wielding swords. Guillaume in his translation of Ishaq's Sirat Rasul Allah, said: "It is clear that a later story has been attached to this incident. Obviously, if the prophet had overheard their designs there was no need of a supernatural communication from heaven." In other words: the godly inspiration was a hoax. While this account has more holes than a leaky roof,Tabari shares another take on Islam's excuse, I mean, "inspiration." Tabari VII:157 "Amr went up to the roof to roll the stone. News of this came to the Prophet from Heaven, and he got up as though he wished to relieve himself. His companions waited for him but he was gone for a long time. The Jews began to say, 'What has delayed Abu al-Qasim?' Muhammad's Companions left and Kinanah said, 'News of what you intended has reached him.'" This justification is essential for Islam. It serves to excuse grotesque barbarism, grand larceny, and ultimately, genocide. Yet Muhammad had to come o the Nadir to beg for blood money to excuse a double homicide. That does t bode well for their credibility. Ishaq:437 "The Prophet went back to his home. When his Companions thought that he had been gone a long time they got up to look for him. On the way they told a man the story of the treachery intended by the Jews and ordered them to get ready to fight them and march against them." Since Muhammad had run away without telling his gang nything, how did they know?Tabari VII:158 "When the Messenger's Companions returned they found him sitting in the mosque. They said, 'O Prophet, we waited for you but you did not come back.' 'The Jews intended to kill me,' he replied, 'and Allah informed me of it. [One rock to another, I suppose.] Call Muhammad bin Maslamah to me.' When Muhammad came, he was told to go to the Jews and say, 'Leave my country. You have intended treachery.' He went and said, 'The Messenger orders you to depart from his country.' They replied, 'We never thought that an Aws would come with such a message.' 'Hearts have changed,' Muhammad said. 'Islam has wiped out our old covenants.'" This is a stinging indictment. First, these Hadiths are contradictory. While conflicting scripture is common for Islam, this time it's being used to justify a hideously immoral act. Second, Muhammad, the bad boy who had been banished from Mecca for reneging on the Quraysh Bargain and for threatening to slaughter his kin, was now claiming that Yathrib was his country. It wasn't Allah's; it wasn't Islam's. It was his. Third, without any actual provocation, he ordered established families, thousands of them, from their homes because he wanted their money. The most incriminating lines were saved for last: "Hearts have changed. Islam has wiped out our old covenants." Muhammad's poligious doctrine was corrosive - more dangerous than Mein Kampf. Anyone who trusts it is ruined - as is everyone around them. Today's terrorists have not corrupted their religion; Islam has corrupted them. There will be no peace until this false, intolerant, and violent doctrine is expunged from the earth. Tabari VII:158/Ishaq:437 "After telling his Companions about the treachery which the Jews had meditated against him, the Apostle ordered them to prepare for war and to march against them." To "meditate" is to quietly engage in thought or contemplation. If this is true, the Jews said nothing and did nothing. If it's not true, Islam's prophet is a liar. Either way, Muhammad was totally unjustified in ordering his militants to attack. The siege of the Nadir was an act of terrorism and piracy, proving that the sole founder of Islam was a vicious criminal. Tabari VII:158/Ishaq:437 "Muhammad personally led his men against the Nadir and halted in their quarter. The Jews took refuge against him in their homes, so he ordered their date palms to be cut down and burnt. They shouted, 'Muhammad, you have forbidden wonton destruction of property and have blamed those who perpetrated it. Why are you doing this?'" Muhammad didn't answer the question directly. He delegated the excuse to his god. A situational scripture authorizing destruction was "handed down." 59.5 "The palm trees you cut down or left standing intact was by Allah's dispensation so that He might disgrace the transgressors." I'll let you decide if the creator of the universe etched this line on an eternal tablet before the world was created or if Muhammad just made it up. But you should know that the 59th surah was revealed following the banishment of the Qaynuqa Jews the prior year, and yet the verse's authorization was recited in past tense. Also, the obliteration of the date farm "disgraced the transgressors" only in the sense that Muhammad was the transgressor. Muslims confiscated the groves. ackidi writes: Tabari VII:158/Ishaq:437 "Abd Allah bin Ubayy sent a message to the Nadir saying, 'Stand firm. I have two thousand Bedouin men who are united around me. Stay, and they will battle with you as will the Qurayza.' However, Sallam, a Qurayza Jew said, 'We shall not break our compact as long as I am alive. We are eminent among the Jewish people by virtue of our wealth.' Continuing to speak to the Nadir Jews the Qurayza leader said, 'Accept what Muhammad has proposed before you have to accept what is worse.' 'What could be worse?' Huyayy, the Nadir chief asked. 'The seizure of your wealth, the enslavement of your children, and the killing of your men,' the Qurayza Jew replied. Huyayy refused to accept his advice. He told a Muslim urier, 'We will not leave our homes and farms; so do what you see fit.'" w bizarre, a man named Slave-to-Allah rallied to aid the Jews against the uslims. But it's the Qurayza response that is foreboding. They were the largest community in Yathrib. By capitulating to the tyrant, by sacrificing eir brethren, they doomed themselves to the very fate they feared. They were soon plundered, raped, sold into slavery, and murdered. This should be haunting warning to the West, and particularly to the Israelis. Divided as they are now, with many willing to appease Islamic tyrants and trade land in hopes of retaining their treasure, they will lose everything. As we continue with this horrific tale, consider the implications of the following Hadith in the context of Allah being either a pagan idol or Lucifer. "The Messenger magnified Allah and the Muslims magnified Allah with him." This means they yelled, "Allahu Akbar!" - "Allah is Greatest!" Ishaq:437 "So Allah cast terror into the hearts of the Jews. Then the Prophet said, 'The Jews have declared war.'" According to the Islamic scriptures, there was no declaration of war.Tabari VII:158 "Judayy went to Abd Allah Ibn Ubayy to ask for support. He said, 'I found him sitting among a number of his companions while the Prophet's crier was calling men to arms. He said, 'This is a clever trick of Muhammad's.'" Yes, indeed. The Profitable Profit Plan was about to benefit from another "clever trick." If mugging a jogger in Central Park is "clever," this was downright brilliant. "The Messenger of Allah besieged the Nadir Jews for fifteen days. In the end they made peace with him on the condition that the Prophet would not kill them and that their property and their coats of mail would be his." According to the lying prophet, the Jews had "declared war," yet they never wielded a sword or shot an arrow. They were simply "besieged" - starved into submission. Then they were forced to make "peace," Islamic style. The false prophet said: "You give me your property and I will allow you to live." But of course, our profiteer acted with Allah's blessing, making him an Apostle. If, after reading these words, you believe that Muhammad, the instigator and perpetrator of this heinous crime, was a conduit to God, you are as lost as he was. If you believe that Islam was conceived as a tolerant and peaceful religion to save men's souls, you are sadly mistaken. For non-Muslims, I trust you find these words sobering. The negative implications associated with our continued ignorance of Islam are staggering. This is not merely a history lesson. Muhammad claimed that he had "spiritual authority" for his barbarism. He started a "religion" to justify his atrocities and to perpetrate others. That makes Islam the most evil dogma ever conceived - and the most dangerous. What's more, the first Muslims were proud of themselves. They conceived many Hadith to express their joy. The first is rather blunt:Tabari VII:159 "The Messenger of Allah besieged the Banu Nadir for fifteen days until he had reduced them to a state of utter exhaustion, so that they would give him what he wanted. The terms in which the Prophet made peace with the Jews were: he would not shed their blood, he would expel them from their lands and settlements, providing for every three of them a camel and a water-skin." It's getting harder to write polite commentary on this %#$@&! behavior. With Islam, the price of peace has been defined: your home, your property, your business, your country, your everything.Tabari VII:159 "The Prophet fought them until he made peace with them on condition that they evacuate Yathrib. He expelled them to Syria but allowed them to keep what their camels could carry, except for their coats of mail and weapons." Imagine what it was like to record this Hadith. What must the Islamic sage have thought? Imagine being a Muslim today and stumbling upon this. What are your options? If you reject these Hadith Collections, there is no record of the prophet and thus there is no Islam, as he was the lone messenger. Apart from the Sira and Sunnah, nothing is known about Muhammad or Islam's formation. Without his example, the Five Pillars all vanish. Without context and chronology, the Qur'an becomes a meaningless and disjointed rant. It's a lose-lose proposition. If you accept the Hadith as true, as the path to God, the model of morality, you are destined to become a like-minded terrorist. But if you reject them, you lose everything: your culture, political system, religion, prophet, and god. Further, the faithful will kill you. In context, the siege and banishment of the Nadir was outrageous. The people who had built Yathrib, who had lived there peacefully for a thousand years, were forced out of their homes and from their farms by men who had just barely arrived. Less than seventy Muslims had invaded their town, yet, burning with hatred and uncontrollable greed, they plundered it. Ishaq:438 "The Jews loaded their camels with their wives, children, and property. There were tambourines, pipes and singing. They went to Khaybar with such splendor as had never been seen from any tribe." The Jews were giving the Muslims an important message. Even deprived of their worldly possessions, Yahweh's chosen possessed something better than Allah's chosen would ever know. Ishaq:438 "The Nadir left their property to Muhammad and it became his personal possession, to do with it as he wished. He divided it among the Emigrants, to the exclusion of the Ansar." But gone was not forgotten. Before we leave this dreadful example of what fundamental Islam did to men's minds and souls, you must know that the Nadir will be hunted again. The next time it won't be so pleasant. Muhammad's biographer claims Allah revealed these Qur'an verses to his prophet to celebrate the occasion: Ishaq:438 "Allah wreaked His vengeance on the Jews and gave His Apostle power over them and control to deal with them as he wished. Allah said, 'I turned out those who disbelieved of the Scripture People from their homes. You did not think that they would go but I came upon them and terrorized them. And in the next world I will torment them again with a painful punishment in Hell. The palm trees you cut down were by Allah's permission; they were uprooted on My order. It was not destruction but it was vengeance from Allah to humble the evildoers. The spoil which Allah gave the Apostle from the Nadir belongs to him." Ishaq is suggesting that the 59th surah was handed down regarding the Nadir siege rather than the Qaynuqa raid. But that can't be, since the rest of the surah deals with the defeat at Uhud that prompted the Qaynuqa attack. hammad dropped a string of prophetic pearls, all dutifully collected by al-Bukhari, so that Muslims would not miss his message of racial hatred, terrorism, oppression, and greed:Bukhari:V4B52N153 "The properties of Banu Nadir which Allah had transferred to His Apostle as Fair Booty were not gained by the Muslims with their horses and camels. The properties therefore, belonged especially to Allah's Apostle who used to give his family their yearly expenditure and spend what remained thereof on arms and horses to be used in Allah's Cause." Since the dastardly deed was Muhammad's cheme start to finish, the booty was all his. And, in direct contradiction with the Qur'an, Muhammad didn't use his ill-gotten gain to bribe his ercenaries. He used it to buy the affection of his wives and to acquire more weapons of war. Saintly behavior, it was not. Muhammad was not the first tyrant to besiege and plunder, to terrorize, a defenseless community. He was not the first warlord to lure mercenaries into his ranks by sharing some of the property he had stolen. Allah's messenger wasn't the first pervert to buy love following a conquest. And Islam's prophet wasn't the first psychopath to trade booty for weapons so that he could continue plundering. But he was the first do do so while perpetrating a religious scam.Bukhari:V4B52N176 "Allah's Apostle said, 'You Muslims will fight the Jews till some of them hide behind stones. The stones will betray them saying, "O Abdullah (slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him."'" This must have been a real crowd-pleaser because there is a second variation. Bukhari:V4B52N177 "Allah's Apostle said, 'The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."'" By this time, the talking Black Stone had delivered ninety percent of the Qur'an, so Muhammad was familiar with interpreting their special form of communication. The next Hadith is among the most telling in Islam.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 [besieging], the keys to the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.'" He started with his own family, the Quraysh, and then moved on to Yahweh's family, the Jews. Some of the poetic highlights associated with this abusive behavior include: Ishaq:440 "Helped by the Holy Spirit we smited Muhammad's foes. He is a true Messenger from the Compassionate, an Apostle reciting Allah's Book. He became honored in rank and station. So the Apostle sent a message to them with a sharp cutting sword." The "Holy Spirit" is another concept stolen from the Bible. It is grossly misapplied here. I cover the Holy Spirit's actual nature on page 608 in response to another bogus claim. But there was some Islamic truth revealed here. "The Apostle sent a message with a sharp cutting sword." Ishaq:441 "A man who had neither shown treachery nor bad faith haply had a change of fortune and took revenge, cutting down their palm trees and killing the Nadir. A sharp sword in the hand of a brave man kills his dversary. The rabbis were disgraced for they denied mighty Lord Allah." Ishaq:442 "Sword in hand we brought down the Nadir. By Muhammad's order we beguiled them." Actually it was the Muslims who were "beguiled." Moving on, we find that it didn't take long before the Muslim militants needed another fix: Tabari VII:162/Ishaq:445 "There is a difference of opinion as to which of his expeditions [terrorist raids] took place after the one against the Banu Nadir. Some say Muhammad remained in Yathrib for two months before leading a raid on Najd, directed against the Banu Muharib and Tha'labah. As the armies approached one another, no fighting took place, because our army was afraid of theirs." Allah's killer angels must have been preoccupied. This also suggests that the Nadir Jews were unarmed. The Sira and Sunnah say: Tabari VII:162/Ishaq:445 "The rules of the Prayer of Fear were revealed during this raid. [And confirmed in Qur'an 4:102] The Messenger of Allah divided the Companions into two groups; one stood facing the enemy while the other stood behind the Prophet. He magnified Allah by shouting 'Allahu Akbar.' Then he and those behind him performed a rak'ah and prostrated themselves." Magnifying Allah is "The Prayer of Fear" - how appropriate for a terrorist dogma. According to the Hadith, "The Prayer of Fear" is comprised of shouting: "Allahu Akbar!" - "Allah is Greatest!" Greater than whom is the obvious question. Greater than Ar-Rahman? Greater than Hubal, Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, or Manat? Or does Allah want to be greater than Yahweh? And while you might think that I'm poking fun, I'm not. This is a lose-lose game for Islam. If Allah is claiming to be the greatest pagan god, Islam is a farce. And Allah cannot be greater than Yahweh because he claimed to be the Ilah of Abraham and the author of the Torah and Gospels. "Allahu Akbar!" is the war chant of Islamic terrorists everywhere, even today. The fact it's called "The Prayer of Fear" reveals the doctrine's purpose. Islamic dictionaries translate "Allahu Akbar" as "Allah is Greater, Greatest, or Most Great." Yet contemporary Muslim apologists would prefer you to believe that it means "God is Great." Those who profit from imposing Islam recognize that exposing such truth would devastate their power base. So they willfully and knowingly contradict Allah and Muhammad, the Qur'an and Sunnah, to protect what they covet. Since so much is at stake, let's examine Islam's most telling and most frequently quoted slogan in context. While out on a terrorist raid: "The Prophet magnified Allah by shouting 'Allahu Akbar.'" To "magnify" is to make bigger or greater. Yet God is infinate. Yahweh cannot be magnified or be made greater. But a man can be magnified, and so can Satan. The only scenario in which Islam's most important slogan makes sense is as follows: Muhammad created Allah's persona. A rock idol became his alter ego. But it was worse than that. Muhammad was possessed, selling his soul to the Devil. He spoke on Lucifer's behalf. The fallen angel masqueraded as Gabriel and inspired much of the Qur'an. Insecure and insignificant, deceitful, evil, and covetous, they needed to be feared and to be magnified. In the overall scope of things, this next Tradition is of little consequence. Yet, in its own way, it helps establish the relationship between the true nature of Islam and the behavior of Muslims.Tabari VII:164 "We went out with the Messenger on a raid to Dhat Riqa in the neighborhood of Nakhl. At one point, a Muslim killed a polytheist woman. When Muhammad was on his way back to Yathrib, her husband swore he would not rest until he had wrought bloodshed among the Prophet's Companions. He followed our tracks. Muhammad set up guards at night, an Ansar and an Emigrant.… The woman's husband saw them and shot an arrow. The Ansari pulled it out, put it down, and remained standing in prayer. The man shot a second and third arrow him, but exactly the same thing happened. Finally the Ansari, after wing and prostrating himself, woke his companion. 'Sit up. I have been wounded.' The Emigrant leapt to his feet. When the woman's husband saw the two of them there, he fled. Then the Emigrant, seeing the Ansari's bloodstained condition, exclaimed, 'Allah Almighty! Why didn't you wake me the first time he shot you?' 'I was in the middle of reciting a Surah and I did not want to stop without finishing it.'" Islam precludes rational thought and behavior. After murdering one man's wife, Muhammad added a sixth to his harem.Tabari VII:167 "The Messenger married Umm Salamah. In this year also, the Prophet commanded Zayd bin Thabit to study the Book of the Jews, saying, 'I fear that they may change my Book.' In this year the polytheists were in charge of the Meccan Pilgrimage." These three sentences end year four of the Islamic Era. An overly-sexed prophet comes within one of having a different girl for every night of the week. Then the prophetic imposter called the Bible his book, rather than Allah's, and said that he was afraid the Jews would change it. Muhammad may, therefore, have been so delusional that he thought these local Jews would alter Scripture to foil him. Or he was so deviously deceitful, he needed more scripture than the Jews were willing to sell. So he asked Zayd to study the "Book" as a source of future Qur'an revelations. And finally, proving that Islam was just regurgitated paganism, the Pilgrimage, or Hajj, was in the hands of the polytheists.

Opening Volume VIII of Tabari's History, The Victory of Islam, we are confronted by an editor's note. Rather somber in tone, it reveals that years five through eight of the Islamic Era were ugly. We discover: "The religion embodied in the Qur'an changed dramatically. Mecca capitulated. Medina became a purely Muslim polity. The last remaining Jewish tribe was annihilated. Internal Arab opposition from the 'hypocrites,' disintegrated. In short, although Muhammad had begun the period as a local phenomenon, by the end he was 'King of Arabia.'" But some things remained the same. If six wives were good, seven were better.Tabari VIII:1 "In this year the Messenger married Zaynab bt. Jahsh [a first cousin]." But it wasn't as simple as all of that. The story that follows may be more shocking than pedophilia - and that's because Allah wallows in it. It begins with our hero stumbling into the home of his adopted son Zyad. "Allah's Messenger came to the house of Zayd bin [son of] Muhammad. Perhaps the Messenger missed him at that moment. Zaynab, Zayd's wife, rose to meet him. Because she was dressed only in a shift, the Holy Prophet turned away from her. She said: 'He is not here. Come in, you are as dear to me as my ather and mother!' Muhammad refused to enter. Zaynab had dressed in haste when she heard that the Prophet was at her door. She jumped up eagerly and excited the admiration of Allah's Messenger, so that he turned away murmuring something that could scarcely be understood. However, he did say overtly, 'Glory be to Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!'" (That, of course, would make Allah the god of lust, better known as Lucifer.) Since the Islamic Era dawned with pedophilia, it should be no surprise that our lustful libertine has migrated to the verge of incest. The same man who asked his son Ali to serve as bait for Arab swordsmen in Mecca and a Jewish rock roller in Medina now sends his other son, Zayd, off on a terrorist raid so that he might excitedly admire his daughter-in-law. Glory be.Tabari VIII:2 "When Zayd came home Zaynab told him that Muhammad had come. Zayd said, 'Why didn't you ask him to come in?' Zaynab replied, 'I asked him but he refused.' 'Did he say anything?' 'Glory be to Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!' So Zayd went to Muhammad. 'Prophet, I have heard that you came to my house. Why didn't you go in? [Dad,] Perhaps Zaynab has excited your admiration, so I will leave her.'" Tabari VIII:3 "Zayd left her, and she became free. While the Messenger of Allah was talking with Aisha, 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? Allah has married her to me.'" Gods like that can only be found buried in Arabian rock piles. "Then the Holy Prophet recited [Qur'an 33] to the end of the passage. Aisha said, 'I became very uneasy because of what we heard about her beauty and another thing, the loftiest of matters - what Allah had done for her by personally giving her to him in marriage. I said that she would boast of it over us.'" The victim of prophetic pedophilia had become so insecure, she was jealous of the object of inspired incest. This isn't a very attractive picture. Before we peek into the 33rd surah to see why the god of Islam authorized his lone prophet to indulge in this kind of immorality, let's examine a second Hadith. Incest is a serious offense. If Allah's lone conduit was guilty of such a crime, he became worthy of condemnation, not admiration.Tabari VIII:4 "One day Muhammad went out looking for Zayd. Now there was a covering of haircloth over the doorway, but the wind had lifted the covering o that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the heart of the Prophet. After that Allah made her unattractive to Zayd.'" Now that we have exposed Zaynab and confirmed that the motive was lust, it's time to expose Allah and the nature of Muhammad's situational scriptures. While the 33rd surah, called "The Confederates," isn't the Qur'an's most lethal, it is the most vulgar. 33.1 "Prophet (Muhammad)! Fear Allah, and do not obey the Disbelievers and Hypocrites: Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise." A second translation says: "Prophet! Be careful of Allah and do not comply with the unbelievers and hypocrites." Allah is condemning "hypocrites," - the same people Muhammad has been assailing for being peaceful and disobedient Muslims. But in the context of this story on incest, it's lunacy for him to do so. Our boy was committing pedophilia while lusting for incest and Allah had the nerve to call his critics hypocrites! The greatest hypocrite who ever lived prevailed by projecting his own faults on those with the good sense to question his scandalous lifestyle. 33.2 "Follow that which comes to you by inspiration from your Lord: for Allah is well acquainted with (all) that you do." The last Hadith said that while engaged in pedophilia with Aisha, the prophet was inspired to commit incest with Zaynab. If you were wavering on whether the Qur'an was divine revelation or simply situational scriptures, you have just been given a rather profound clue. Imagine the preposterousness of God jotting down and then endorsing a specific incident of prophet immorality before creating the universe and then handing such rubbish down to a pirate as his final revelation to mankind. Yet that is precisely what must have happened if Islam is to be believed. 33.3 "And put your trust in Allah; enough is Allah as a disposer of fairs. [A garbage disposal is more like it.] Allah has not made for any man two hearts in his body: nor has He made your wives whom you divorce your others: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths. But Allah tells the Truth, and He shows e (right) Way." Endorsing incest is sticky business. So that we aren't too rash in our condemnation, let's give the Islamic god another chance: "Allah hath not assigned unto any man two hearts within his body, nor hath He made your wives whom ye declare your mothers, nor hath He made those whom ye claim (to be your sons) your sons. This is but a saying of your mouths. But Allah saith the truth and He showeth the way." That translation wasn't any better. A third and fourth translation serve to confirm my original theory of child abuse stemming from Muhammad's mother having abandoned him. If this occurred it would explain why he craved women, why he mistreated them, and why he saw them fulfilling maternal roles. "Allah has not made for any man two hearts within him; nor has He made your wives who you liken to your mother, nor has He made those whom you assert to be your sons your real sons..." And: "...your wives whom you declare to be like your mother, your real mother..." Next, Lucifer demeans adoption to satiate Muhammad's cravings. 33.5 "Call them by (the names of) their fathers: that is juster in the sight of Allah. But if ye know not their father's (names, call them) your brothers in faith, or your slaves. But there is no blame on you if ye make a mistake therein. (What counts is) the intention of your heart: and Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful." This pathetic pretence of scripture continues to wallow in the muck of Muhammad's troubled mind. 33.6 "The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are their mothers. And the possessors of relationship have the better claim in the ordinance of Allah to inheritance, one with respect to another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have fled: nevertheless do what is just to your closest friends: This is written in the Book." Let me take a whack at interpreting this for you. A fifty-seven year-old man in bed with a twelve year-old girl just told us that his god, a pagan rock idol, inspired him to say that he has first dibs on anyone and anything he covets. "Themselves" refers to people and "inheritance" refers to money. Then to assure that his fellow Muslims would support him, he says that they are next in line to be abused. And what makes this so damning is that the justification is alleged to be scriptural. It's the heavenly endorsement of the Profitable Prophet Plan - the means to steal power, sex, and money. Islam is a paper-thin scam. It was perpetrated to satisfy Muhammad's insecurity.Bukhari:V8B78N628 "The Prophet was holding Umar's hand. 'O Allah 's Apostle! You are dearer to me than everything except my own self.' The Prophet said, 'No, by Him in Whose Hand my soul is, you will not have faith till I am dearer to you than your own self.' Then Umar said, 'However, now, by Allah, you are dearer to me than my own self.' The Prophet said, 'Now, Umar, you are a believer.'" That was all there was to Islam. But so that it wouldn't be obvious to the unthinking, Muhammad confounded hem with garbage like: 33.7 "And remember We took from the prophets their covenant: As from thee: from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: We took from them a solemn covenant: That (Allah) may question the (custodians) of Truth concerning the Truth they (were charged with): And He has prepared for the Unbelievers a grievous Penalty." A second translation reads: "That He may ask the loyal of their loyalty. And He hath prepared a painful doom for the unbelievers." Even with the parenthetical explanations added by the translators, it's senseless. "Covenants" are reciprocal agreements; they can 't be taken. And what's up with "the loyal of their loyalty." Moreover, why lash out at unbelievers? What have they done? If I'm right, what's really happening here is that Muhammad made a deal with the Devil. Satan promised him power, sex, and money. But Lucifer wanted mething in return - Islam - a doctrine founded on deceit, death, and damnation. He wanted to be worshiped as God. (Not loved, by the way, which is why Islamic "worship" is comprised entirely of obligatory duties and prostrations.) And knowing that there was a real God, Lucifer wanted Yahweh' s chosen people abused and their scriptures assailed. Then he wanted Muhammad to attack Christ, revealing scripture that placed the Messiah beneath him. And from what I can tell, they both got what they bargained for. But the Demonic Covenant, the Religion of fools, by fools, and for fools, was too foolish to remember what had happened one battle to the next. So now we're told that the Badr victory was due to a hurricane. 33.9 "O ye who believe! Remember the Grace of Allah on you when there came down an army. But We sent against them a hurricane and forces that ye saw not: but Allah sees all that ye do. Behold! They came on from above and from below you, and eyes became dim and hearts gaped up to the throats, stupefied with terror, and ye imagined various vain thoughts about Allah!" The deceitful duo is protesting: "I know you couldn't see the angels, and a hurricane in Arabia is pushing it, but trust me on this, they were there all the same. Sure, it seems laughable, causing you to think various vain thoughts about Allah, but you just gotta believe us. Otherwise, how am I going to justify stealing your money, mind, soul, and freedom?" In a related Hadith:Bukhari:V8B75N417 "Allah's Messenger said, 'Allah has some angels who look for those who think about Allah while they're out [fighting] and they encircle them with their wings. Allah [who hears all] asks these angels, 'What do my slaves say?' The angels reply, 'Allahu Akbar! ' Allah [who sees all] asks, 'Can they see Me?' The angels answer, 'No. They can't see you.' Allah [who knows all] says, 'How would it have been if they had seen Me?' 'If they had seen You [one spirit said to another] they would have worshiped you more.' Allah [who created the largest brothel] asks, 'What do they desire?' 'They ask for your Paradise.' 'Have they seen it?' 'No. But if they had they would covet it all the more.' 'What do they fear?' 'Hell Fire.' 'Have they seen it?' 'No. If they had seen it they would flee it with extreme fear.' Allah said, 'I will not reduce every Companion to misery.'" Lucifer knows that fear is more compelling than lust. That is why his brothel is described in five surahs and hell's torments are threatened 1,000 times. Moving on with our romp through Muhammad's personal scriptures, we learn that even the militants were aghast. 33.11 "In that situation the Believers were sorely tried and shaken as by a tremendous shaking. And behold! The Hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease said: 'Allah and His Messenger promised us nothing but delusion!' Or… "Allah and His Messenger promised only to deceive us." The bad Muslims, or hypocrites, are now "diseased" because they had the common sense and courage to say that Muhammad's mutterings were deceptive. In Islam, morality is a sickness. Sanity is a disease. wkwardly transitioning to Uhud, the prophet reveals: 33.13 "Behold! A party among them said: 'Men of Yathrib! You cannot stand (the attack); therefore go back!' And a band of them asked for leave of the Prophet, saying, 'Our houses are bare and exposed,' though they were not exposed. They intended nothing but to run away. If the enemy [Meccan merchants] had entered from all sides [of Yathrib] and had they been exhorted to treachery, they would have committed it, and they would not have hesitated." In Islam, peace is treachery. Everything is upside down. Next, our tattered hero uses the Pledge of Aqabah, the oath of war that preceded the Hijrah, to condemn peaceful Muslims: 33.14 "And yet they had already covenanted with Allah not to turn their backs, and a covenant with Allah must be answered." At the Pledge of Aqabah, allegiance was sworn to Muhammad, not Allah. The first Muslims said it was an "oath to wage war against all mankind." In a second translation: "And verily they had already sworn to Allah that they would not turn their backs (to a foe). An oath to Allah must be adhered to. Say: 'Running away will not profit you if you are running away from death or slaughter; and even if (you escape), no more than a brief (respite) will you be allowed!'" This verse is so devastating to the "peaceful myth" of Islam, it deserves a third look: "Say: Flight will not avail you if you ee from death, killing, or slaughter. In that case you will not be allowed to enjoy yourselves but a little while. Say, 'Who will screen you, saving you from Allah if he intends to harm and injure you?'" This sounds like Stalin's command at the battle of Stalingrad. He ordered his comrades to eliminate any Russian who fled from death, killing, or slaughter. There were as many guns pointed at their backs as there were in their faces. Muhammad and Allah are saying the same thing to their comrades. "If you don't fight to the death for us, we will kill you ourselves." And throughout time good Muslims have done just that. They have slaughtered millions more bad Muslims than they have good infidels. Pacifists really annoyed Islam's war god. 33.18 "Verily Allah already knows those among you who keep back and those who say to their brethren, 'Come along to us,' but come not to the fight in the stress of battle except for just a little while. Being covetous and niggardly with respect to you; but when fear comes, you will see them looking to you, their eyes rolling like one swooning because of death. But when the fear is gone they smite you with sharp tongues, covetous of goods, in their greed for wealth (from the spoil). Such men have no faith, and so Allah has made their deeds of none effect: and that is easy for Allah." Bad Muslims pretend to go along with the program but when the going gets tough, they don't fight; they faint. They only want the booty. So Allah will nullify their deeds sending every peaceful Muslim to hell. The devilish duet consistently defines "bad Muslims" as nonviolent. 33.20 They...wish the allied clans were (wandering) in the desert among the Bedouins. But if they were in your midst, they would only battle or fight with them for moment." The next verse is among the most important in Islam. It makes every word in the Hadith relevant. 33.21 "You have in (Muhammad) the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct for any one to follow." Islamic terrorists the world over are doing just that. They are following the "beautiful pattern of conduct" established by Muhammad. They are simply following his example, heeding Allah's advice. Other translations read: 33.21 "Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day." Or: "Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent prototype..." And: "You have indeed a noble paradigm [archetype, exemplar, standard, model, or pattern] to follow in Allah's Apostle." The Hadith agrees with Allah's assessment. BukhariV7B63N1891 "Indeed in the Apostle of Allah you have a good example to follow." Reading the Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim Hadith Collections is essential because Allah told Muslims to follow Muhammad's example. Yet the behavior recorded in these books is criminal. They say that Muhammad was incestuous, a pedophile, pirate, liar, thief, sexual libertine, rapist, sadist, sexist, assassin, kidnapper, slave trader, racist and war-mongering terrorist. He got his jollies slaughtering all who didn't capitulate. So following his example would make one a very bad person. If you think the world needs more people like Muhammad, then let's let Muslims build more mosques. And while we're at it, let's continue to transfer a billion dollars a day into the coffers of those who manufacture men in the mold of Muhammad. Just think of what a wonderful world it would be. I'm going to skip over the next seven verses of the 33rd surah, called the "Allied Troops." They speak of atrocities yet to come. Another battle must be fought with the Arabs and another Jewish settlement must be annihilated before we are ready to hear Allah's justification. But you need to know that the transition I have omitted (for now) is the worst in the Qur'an. Satan segues from genocide to lust without a single intervening verse. It's proof that the Qur'an was composed by a lesser life form. While we will review these passages later, the 26th and 27th verses of the 33rd surah are the most heinous in the Qur'an. They speak of horrific terror, Holocaust style genocide, grand larceny, and selling women and children into slavery. Then without missing a beat, Allah speaks to Muhammad about his playthings, his wives and consorts, and their glittering adornments: 33.28 "O Prophet, say to your wives and consorts: 'If you desire this world's life and its glittering adornment, then come! I will provide them for your enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner. And if you desire Allah and His Messenger and the latter abode, then lo! Allah hath prepared for the good-doers an immense reward." It's hard to tell if the prophet wasn't desirable and was thus trying to buy sex or if he wanted to bribe his consorts into leaving so that he could collect a fresh batch. Aisha explains: BukhariV7B63N188 "The Prophet gave us the option (to remain with him or to be divorced) and we selected Allah and His Apostle." Even when it came to sex, Allah and his Apostle were inseparable. It's another important clue. The addition of Zaynab and her exotic charms to the prophet's lair stirred up a hornet's nest and caused dissention in the ranks. So the unbridled pervert had his "god" warn the remainder of his sex toys: 33.30 "O Consorts of the Prophet! If any of you are guilty of unseemly conduct, shamelessness, or lewdness, the punishment will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah. But any of you that is devout, obedient, and submissive in the service to Allah and His Messenger, and does good, to her shall We grant her reward twice. We have prepared for her a generously rich provision." When situational scriptures focus on murdering neighbors, stealing property, and sexual submissiveness, we have a problem. Good and bad Muslims alike have read these "scriptures" for 1400 years, and yet they seem oblivious to the fact they are ungodly. Therefore, one of only two conclusions can be drawn. Either Islam has corrupted souls and corroded minds to the point that Muslims can no longer reason, or the sword of Islam has prevented them from acting rationally. But either way, unless we free Muslims from Islam and establish in its stead a credible educational curriculum, there is no hope. Tyranny and terror will march on for benefit of cleric and king. Under the pretense of Qur'an revelation, Muhammad lectured his wives and put down the revolt that emanated from his incestuous act. 33.32 "O Consorts of the Prophet! You are not like any of the (other) women. Fear and keep your duty, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire. Stay quietly in your apartment. Make not a dazzling display like that of the former times of Ignorance. Perform the devotion, pay the zakat; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah wishes to cleanse you with a thorough cleansing. And bear in mind that which is recited in your houses of the revelations of Allah and the wisdom." It's hard to believe that anyone thinks these self-serving words are scripture. His harem in check, we find Muhammad confirming the central message of Islam: surrender, submit, obey, and pay. 33.35 "Lo! Men who surrender, and women who submit, and who believe and obey…who are humble, and pay the tax, nd men who fast and guard their modesty and private parts - Allah hath repared for them forgiveness and a vast reward." While forgiveness sounds religious, contemplate what one would be forgiven for - Allah has condoned every perverse act known to man. And while we're poking holes, ponder why a doctrine built on predestination rather than choice would even bother with forgiveness. By way of example: 33.36 "It is not fitting for a Muslim man or woman to have any choice in their affairs when a matter has been decided for them by llah and His Messenger. They have no option. If any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a wrong Path." That was a wonderful explanation of Muhammad's motivation for implementing Islam. And it coincides perfectly with Hitler's motivation for implementing Nazism. Now that Allah has reconfirmed that Islam is devoid of choice, merely a doctrine of submission, it's time for another situational scripture condoning incest - the marriage of a father to his daughter-in-law. Muhammad's Muslims knew it was wrong, and they were assailing their dictator. So the tyrant said his spirit friend revealed a verse which I'm going to leave in "King James" English so that you might appreciate its religious flair. (As an interesting aside, I was curious as to how long ago the "thee and thou" anslation was made so as to determine if using 400-year-old English was asonable or just another Islamic deception. The first Qur'an I opened said that it was completed courtesy of a 1419 A.H. endowment. That's the year 2041 A.D.) 33.37 "Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favor: 'Retain thou thy wife, and fear Allah.' But thou didst hide in thy mind and thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zayd had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We gave her to thee, joining her in marriage to thee: in order that there may be no difficulty or sin for the Believers in 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." The odds against our Creator approving incest are incalculable. ot finished indicting himself, Satan now claims that incest is an ordained uty, that all messengers are scumbags, and that old societal values are passé. 33.38 "There can be no difficulty, harm, or reproach to the Prophet in doing what Allah has ordained to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And the commandment of Allah is a decree determined. (It is the practice of those) who deliver the Messages of Allah, and fear Him. Allah keeps good account. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Last of the Prophets with the Seal: and Allah has full knowledge of all things." The hairy mole "seal" on his back was as phony as his pretending to be a prophet. And no prophet was ever commanded to be immoral. In the next series of verses the god of incest wallows in self promotion. He bribes Muslims with promises of generous rewards, and says that his overly xed messenger is "a lamp spreading light." This is followed by another attack on the "bad" Muslims - the Hypocrites - who were obviously troubled by the "prophet's" immorality. 33.48 "And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites. Disregard their noxious talk and heed not heir annoyances, but put thy trust in Allah. For enough is Allah as a sposer of affairs." No sane person would even contemplate uttering the following words. Muhammad 's willingness to satiate his carnal desires by attributing them to God takes us beyond depravity. The Qur'an claims that Muhammad can have as many wives as he wants. He can have sex with prisoners, cousins, nieces, and captives. 33.50 "O Prophet! We have made lawful to you all the wives to whom you have paid dowers [with stolen property]; and those whom your hands possess out of the prisoners of war spoils whom Allah has assigned to you; and daughters of your paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of your maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated with you; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes her; this is a privilege for you only, and not for the rest of the Believers; We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom they possess; in order that there should be no difficulty for you and that you should be free from blame." Sex with a prisoner is rape - a crime Muhammad would commit countless times with his god's approval. Sex with family members is incest. Sex with youngsters is pedophilia. Sex with many wives is polygamy. Sex with anyone you wish is either fornication or prostitution, depending on whether money changes hands. And offering fellow militants sex with "the captives they possess" is bribery. There is only one spirit demented enough to approve such a lurid laundry list of offenses - Satan. And frankly, some of this is beneath him. Now that Allah had approved pedophilia, rape, incest, fornication, prostitution, bribery, and polygamy, it's time to ordain an orgy. 33.51 "You may put off whom you please, and you may take to you whomever you desire. You may defer any of them you please, and you may have whomever you desire; there is no blame on you if you invite one who you had set aside. It is no sin. They should all be pleased with whatever you give them. Allah knows what is in your heart." Wow! Speaking of sex, Allah said: "You may have whomever you desire. There is no blame." This is so blatantly devoid of morality, it's a disgrace to call Islam a religion. Even Hitler was better than this. Now that we've got an orgy going, how about gluttony? And with all this hedonism, Allah wants Muslims to give Muhammad the time he needs to enjoy his brothel (which, by the way, is his mosque - they were literally one in the same). 33.53 "O ye who believe! Enter not the Prophet's apartments until leave is given you for a meal. (And then) not (so early as) to wait for its preparation. But when you are invited, enter; and, when your meal is ended, then disperse. Linger not for conversation. Lo! that would cause annoyance to the Prophet. Such (behavior) bothers him. He is ashamed to dismiss you, but Allah is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth. And when ye ask (his ladies) for anything, ask them from behind a screen: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is it right for you that you should annoy Allah's Messenger, or that you should marry his widows after him at any time. Truly such a thing is in Allah's sight an enormous offense." This is stunning. Conversation with a "messenger" is an "annoyance." People "bother" an "apostle." A "prophet" is "ashamed" to "tell the truth." After all the evil Allah has drenched us in throughout this surah, this is unconscionable. If conversation is an annoyance, if people are a bother, and if truth is shameful, then there was obviously an ulterior motive for Islam - for it's for damn sure (literally) it has got nothing to do with revealing truth or saving souls. No! Islam is about an insecure man coveting power, sex, and money. Period. The last line is proof. Only an insanely insecure man would fear his widows having sex with another man after he was gone. I find it laughable that Muhammad purports the Qur'an to be eternal, a perfect book, written by the pen before time began, when so much of it is preoccupied with his temporal situation and carnal desires. Methinks Muhammad was simply making it up as he went along to achieve whatever he craved. 33.54 "Whether you divulge anything or conceal it, verily Allah has full knowledge of all things." 33.56 "Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. So O ye who believe! Send your blessings on him, and salute him with all respect - a worthy salutation." Heil Hitler! "Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger and speak evil things of them - Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment - the doom of torment for the disdained." It's not hard to see where der fuhrer got his ideas. 33.58 "And those who annoy or malign Muslims bear (on themselves) a crime of calumny [Hitler's favorite ord] and a glaring sin." Now that we have made Muhammad's sex toys subservient to their master, and Muslims subservient to Muhammad, it's time to institute one of the most demeaning religious doctrines of all time - the veiling of Islamic women. pan class=source>33.59 "Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and all Muslim women to draw cloaks and veils all over their bodies (screening themselves completely except for one or two eyes to see the way). That will be better. They will not be annoyed and molested." Actually, by degrading women this way, they are "annoyed and molested." With women subdued, Allah wants Muslims to know that those who speak out against his immorality and violence will be terrorized - literally. 33.60 "Truly, if the Hypocrites, those in whose hearts is a disease, those who stir up sedition, the agitators in the City, do not desist, We shall urge you (Muhammad) to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbor for any length of time. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy - a fierce slaughter - murdered, a horrible murdering. (Such was) the practice (approved) of Allah among those who lived before. No change wilt thou find in the practice of Allah." Allah is a confessed murderer. He is a savage and merciless terrorist. According to this surah, he is insatiable. And keep in mind, the crime that earned Allah's wrath - the godly seizure and torment - was sedition and agitation. If you speak out against Islam's demonic teachings you will be demonized. Islam isn't the only doctrine that terrorizes those it cannot subdue. Hitler s Nazism, Lenin's Communism, and the Pope's Catholicism all did the same thing. Three of the four even claimed to have divine authority for inflicting terror. But since we don't tolerate such behavior any more, why do we tolerate Islam? The Qur'an just ordered Muslims to seize, terrorize, and brutally murder anyone who disagrees with them. "The agitators…have a curse on them. When they are found they will be seized and slain without mercy." That's an unconscionable position - one completely incompatible with peace or civility. Before we move on, I'd like to make an important distinction. The inspiration for the intolerance and brutality of Islam, Nazism, and Communism is markedly different than that of Catholicism. With Islam, Nazism, and Communism, the founders themselves were the problem. Their religotics were born ugly. Muhammad, Hitler, and Lenin were disgusting, demented, deceitful, power-hungry demagogues. The Catholic clergy had to corrupt Christ's message to justify their brutality. In fact, they had to hide Christ's message - outlawing Bibles and sermons in the common tongue - to perpetrate their ill-advised schemes. However, if one sees Constantine, not Christ, as Catholicism's founder, all four religotics are identical. This may be why Pope John Paul II bowed to and kissed a Qur'an publicly, acknowledging his respect for it in front of cameras. It is why item #841 of the Catechism says: "The Church's relationship with Muslims: The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator. In the first place amongst whom are the Muslims. They profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day." Marching ever toward hell, the Qur'an proclaims: 33.64 "Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers [whom he defines as Christians in the 5th surah] and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior. That Day their faces will be turned upside down in the Fire. They will say: 'Woe to us! We should have obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger!' 'Our Lord! Give them double torment and curse them with a very great Curse!'" That's quite a picture. Allah is threatening to turn us upside down and rub our faces in the fire while Muhammad screams: "Give them a double dose of torment! Curse them!" Something tells me that this really isn't God speaking and Muhammad isn't a prophet. But hey, all I've got to go by are their scriptures. The next verse requires some explanation. Allah said, 33.69 "Believers, be not like those who annoyed Moses. Allah proved his innocence of that which they alleged." The allegation isn't presented in the Qur'an. Allah simply moves on. So I'd like to share a moment of levity. Had Allah really been Yahweh, this is what you would have read in the Torah:Bukhari:V4B55N616 "Allah's Apostle said, 'The Prophet Moses was a shy person and used to cover his body. An Israeli insulted him, saying, "He covers it because of some defect like leprosy or scrotal hernia." Allah wished to clear Moses of this allegation, so one day he took off his clothes, put them on a stone and started taking a bath. When he moved towards his clothes the stone took them and fled. Moses picked up his staff and ran after the stone saying, "O stone! Give me back my clothes!" He reached some Israelis who saw him naked, and found him to be the best of what Allah had created. The stone stopped there and Moses took his garments and started hitting the stone with his stick. By Allah, the stone still has some traces of the hitting, three, four or five marks. This was what Allah meant when he revealed the surah saying: "O you who believe! Be you not like those who annoyed Moses. Allah proved his innocence of that which they alleged."'" I vote we keep the Ten Commandments in the Bible instead. The "Allied Troops" surah ends with Allah proclaiming that men were his fourth choice, and that we are foolish and ignorant tyrants. 33.72 "We did indeed offer the opportunity to the Heavens, the Earth, the Mountains, but they refused to take it, being afraid (of Allah's torment). But man undertook it. He was unjust and foolish. Lo, he has proved a tyrant and fool, ignorant. Allah has to punish the Hypocrites, men and women, and the Unbelievers." The 33rd surah is sufficient to prove that Islam is a fraud, n intolerant, immoral, and vicious scheme that must be condemned.
With that said, your jumbled, hit and miss exerpts from an outdated Elizabethian English translation of the 33rd surah are embarrassing. Why didn't you quote them with their Hadith context? Why did you feel the need to present so many of them out of order if you were trying to address the issue of Muhamamd's perversions? Why didn't you take the time to read Prophet of Doom and copy and paste the Qur'an translations as they were actually presented in the book rather than the trimed exerpts that were listed in the Quotations appendix? Were you too lazy to read the book you were condemning? At the end of the Quotations appendix, you would have read these words: "I have blended the following Qur'an translations to convey its message as clearly as possible: Ahmed Ali, Pikthal, Noble by Muhsin Khan, Yusuf Ali, and Shakir. The oldest Qur'an fragments date to 725 A.D. - a century after they were first recited. The Qur'an lacks context and chronology so it must be read in conjunction with Ishaq and Tabari. Before using passages in this appendix, read Prophet of Doom. Each quote is explained and presented in the context of Muhammad's life."
Even more important, why would you choose to highlight verses that condone immorality--especially incest? Why did you leave out the verses in which Allah falsely claims credit for Muhammad's vicious attack on the Jews?
Questions aside, let's move on. In the first verse you compare, you don't quote the translation in POD. Further, the highlighted passage does little more than reveal how Muhammad told his faithful that Allah has approved him having sex with his son's wife.
Qur'an 33:3-4 from 5 translations in POD: 33.3 "And put your trust in Allah; enough is Allah as a disposer of affairs. Allah has not made for any man two hearts in his body: nor has He made your wives whom you divorce your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths. But Allah tells the Truth, and He shows the (right) Way." Endorsing incest is sticky business. So that we aren't too rash in our condemnation, let's give the Islamic god another chance: "Allah hath not assigned unto any man two hearts within his body, nor hath He made your wives whom ye declare your mothers, nor hath He made those whom ye claim (to be your sons) your sons. This is but a saying of your mouths. But Allah saith the truth and He showeth the way."
But rather than quote POD correctly, you chose to use an email exerpt for your comparison of Qur'an 33:4 which says, "Allah has not made your wives whom you divorce your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths.":
Quran 33:4 from one outdated translation: "Allah has not made for any man two hearts in his (one) body: nor has He made your wives whom ye divorce by Zihar your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths. But Allah tells (you) the Truth, and He shows the (right) Way."
You are suggesting here that copying from one translation written in outdated English is accurate while blending five translations into contemporary English and removing some of the unruly verbosity is a better way to communicate. Nothing could be further from the truth. The message wasn't altered, just communicated in modern day English.
In this next case, the 1600's English befuddles the message. The translation I used in POD is a blend of five but it refects the Shakir translation most closely as his translation most closely fits the context in which the verse was revealed.
SHAKIR 33.6 : The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are (as) their mothers; and the possessors of relationship have the better claim in the ordinance of Allah to inheritance, one with respect to another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have fled (their homes), except that you do some good to your friends; this is written in the Book.
Qur'an 33:6 from 5 translations in POD: 33.6 "The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are their mothers. And the possessors of relationship have the better claim in the ordinance of Allah to inheritance, one with respect to another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have fled: nevertheless do what is just to your closest friends: This is written in the Book."
And the Qur'an 33:6 quote that you listed in your reply to show that I was errant: "The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are their mothers.... This is written in the Book."
Your quote of Quran 33:6 from one outdated translation: "The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers. Blood-relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Decree of Allah, than (the Brotherhood of) Believers and Muhajirs: nevertheless do ye what is just to your closest friends: such is the writing of the Decree (of Allah)."
The preceeding may be the most sexually deviant and immoral words ever spoken by a man who called himself a prophet. Rather than copy and paste, think about what this is saying in the context of Muhammad's desire to have sex with his son's wife: Qur'an 33:6 SHAKIR: The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves,"
Next you jump to Qur'an 33:37. In Prophet of Doom, I wrote: Now that Allah has reconfirmed that Islam is devoid of choice, merely a doctrine of submission, it's time for another situational scripture condoning incest - the marriage of a father to his daughter-in-law. Muhammad's Muslims knew it was wrong, and they were assailing their dictator. So the tyrant said his spirit friend revealed a verse which I'm going to leave in "King James" English so that you might appreciate its religious flair. (As an interesting aside, I was curious as to how long ago the "thee and thou" translation was made so as to determine if using 400-year-old English was reasonable or just another Islamic deception. The first Qur'an I opened said that it was completed courtesy of a 1419 A.H. endowment. That's the year 2041 A.D.) 33.37 "Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favor: 'Retain thou thy wife, and fear Allah.' But thou didst hide in thy mind and thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zayd had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We gave her to thee, joining her in marriage to thee: in order that there may be no difficulty or sin for the Believers in 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." The odds against our Creator approving incest are incalculable.
Like I said, Muhammad wanted what belonged to the boy he had adopted as a son so many years ago. If you think that this is scripture from God, you are indeed lost. The translation you selected for this verse is virtually identical to the one I used in POD.
Quran 33:37 from one outdated translation: "Behold! thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favour: "Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear Allah." But thou didst hide in thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: 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 Allah's command must be fulfilled."
Qur'an 33:38 as it is presented in POD: 33.38 "There can be no difficulty, harm, or reproach to the Prophet in doing what Allah has ordained to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And the commandment of Allah is a decree determined. (It is the practice of those) who deliver the Messages of Allah, and fear Him. Allah keeps good account. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Last of the Prophets with the Seal: and Allah has full knowledge of all things."
You quote Quran 33:38 from one outdated translation that says the same thing, just more stiffly and cumbersome: "There can be no difficulty to the Prophet in what Allah has indicated to him as a duty: It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away, and the command of Allah is a decree determined" Quran 33:39 "(It is the practice of those) who preach the Messages of Allah, and fear Him, and fear none but Allah. And enough is Allah to call (men) to account." Quran 33:40 "Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things."
Next, you jump to the 48th verse. It was written because the townsfolk of Medina were more moral than Muhammad. They knew that incest was wrong. The translation in POD is: 33.48 "And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites. Disregard their noxious talk and heed not their annoyances, but put thy trust in Allah. For enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."
The translation you chose of Quran 33:48 says the same thing although it's not quite as complete as some of the other translations: "And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and heed not their annoyances, but put thy trust in Allah. For enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."
Moving on, we discover something that is disgusting. Muhammad was more interested in sex, power, and money than he was souls. The example he set is reprehensible. I lead into the 50th verse with this: No sane person would even contemplate uttering the following words. Muhammad's willingness to satiate his carnal desires by attributing them to God takes us beyond depravity. The Qur'an claims that Muhammad can have as many wives as he wants. He can have sex with prisoners, cousins, nieces, and captives. 33.50 "O Prophet! We have made lawful to you all the wives to whom you have paid dowers [with stolen property]; and those whom your hands possess out of the prisoners of war spoils whom Allah has assigned to you; and daughters of your paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of your maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated with you; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes her; this is a privilege for you only, and not for the rest of the Believers; We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom they possess; in order that there should be no difficulty for you and that you should be free from blame."
Sex with a prisoner is rape - a crime Muhammad would commit countless times with his god's approval. Sex with family members is incest. Sex with youngsters is pedophilia. Sex with many wives is polygamy. Sex with anyone you wish is either fornication or prostitution, depending on whether money changes hands. And offering fellow militants sex with "the captives they possess" is bribery. There is only one spirit demented enough to approve such a lurid laundry list of offenses - Satan. And frankly, some of this is beneath him.
The 1600's English Qur'an translation that you prefer says the same revolting things: Quran 33:50 "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 Mecca) 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."
The last part of this is an endorcement of the slave trade that Muhammad used to finance his war machine and of the way he used captured women as a form of sexual booty to lure more militants into his ranks. It is also a "godly" endorsement of rape. Sex with a prisoner you possess is rape. You can trust your soul to a sexual pervert if you want. It's a choice that wasn't offered to Muhammad's victims. But it's a foolish choice. Yet I dare say, you may be beyond hope. By posting this garbage without thinking it through you have shown that you have lost your ability to reason and to discern right from wrong. In that way you have become like Muhammad.
I'm not going to compare translations or comment on the rest of this because I have already done so in Prophet of Doom. All I have done is to pull the actual paragraph in POD that includes the verse you are highlighting so that it's being fairly compared. You can read it if you would like.
More importantly, if you want to flee the fraud that currently damns you in this life and in the next, you'll discover how by reading the Epilogue, or the article called "The Choice" found on the Resources page. If not, I'm sorry.
From POD: Now that Allah had approved pedophilia, rape, incest, fornication, prostitution, bribery, and polygamy, it's time to ordain an orgy. 33.51 "You may put off whom you please, and you may take to you whomever you desire. You may defer any of them you please, and you may have whomever you desire; there is no blame on you if you invite one who you had set aside. It is no sin. They should all be pleased with whatever you give them. Allah knows what is in your heart." Wow! Speaking of sex, Allah said: "You may have whomever you desire. There is no blame." This is so blatantly devoid of morality, it's a disgrace to call Islam a religion. Even Hitler was better than this.
From your 1600s English translation of Quran 33:51 : "Thou mayest defer (the turn of) any of them that thou pleasest, and thou mayest receive any thou pleasest: and there is no blame on thee if thou invite one whose (turn) thou hadst set aside. This were nigher to the cooling of the eyes, the prevention of their grief, and their satisfaction - that of all of them - with that which thou hast to give them: and Allah knows (all) that is in your hearts: and Allah is All-Knowing, Most Forbearing."
Next you jump back to the 28th verse. In context in POD: The next verse is among the most important in Islam. It makes every word in the Hadith relevant. 33.21 "You have in (Muhammad) the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct for any one to follow." Islamic terrorists the world over are doing just that. They are following the "beautiful pattern of conduct" established by Muhammad. They are simply following his example, heeding Allah's advice.
Other translations read: 33.21 "Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day." Or: "Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent prototype..." And: "You have indeed a noble paradigm [archetype, exemplar, standard, model, or pattern] to follow in Allah's Apostle." The Hadith agrees with Allah's assessment. BukhariV7B63N1891 "Indeed in the Apostle of Allah you have a good example to follow."
Reading the Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim Hadith Collections is essential because Allah told Muslims to follow Muhammad's example. Yet the behavior recorded in these books is criminal. They say that Muhammad was incestuous, a pedophile, pirate, liar, thief, sexual libertine, rapist, sadist, sexist, assassin, kidnapper, slave trader, racist and war-mongering terrorist. He got his jollies slaughtering all who didn't capitulate. So following his example would make one a very bad person.
If you think the world needs more people like Muhammad, then let's let Muslims build more mosques. And while we're at it, let's continue to transfer a billion dollars a day into the coffers of those who manufacture men in the mold of Muhammad. Just think of what a wonderful world it would be.
I'm going to skip over the next seven verses of the 33rd surah, called the "Allied Troops." They speak of atrocities yet to come. Another battle must be fought with the Arabs and another Jewish settlement must be annihilated before we are ready to hear Allah's justification.
But you need to know that the transition I have omitted (for now) is the worst in the Qur'an. Satan segues from genocide to lust without a single intervening verse. It's proof that the Qur'an was composed by a lesser life form. While we will review these passages later, the 26th and 27th verses of the 33rd surah are the most heinous in the Qur'an. They speak of horrific terror, Holocaust style genocide, grand larceny, and selling women and children into slavery. Then without missing a beat, Allah speaks to Muhammad about his playthings, his wives and consorts, and their glittering adornments: 33.28 "O Prophet, say to your wives and consorts: 'If you desire this world's life and its glittering adornment, then come! I will provide them for your enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner. And if you desire Allah and His Messenger and the latter abode, then lo! Allah hath prepared for the good-doers an immense reward." It's hard to tell if the prophet wasn't desirable and was thus trying to buy sex or if he wanted to bribe his consorts into leaving so that he could collect a fresh batch.
From your outdated 1600s English translation of Quran 33:28 out of context you said: "O Prophet! say to thy Consorts: "If it be that ye desire the life of this world, and its glitter, then come! I will provide for your enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner." Quran 33:29 "But if ye seek Allah and His Messenger, and the Home of the Hereafter, verily Allah has prepared for the well-doers amongst you a great reward."
Qur'an 33:30 in the context of POD: The addition of Zaynab and her exotic charms to the prophet's lair stirred up a hornet's nest and caused dissention in the ranks. So the unbridled pervert had his "god" warn the remainder of his sex toys: 33.30 "O Consorts of the Prophet! If any of you are guilty of unseemly conduct, shamelessness, or lewdness, the punishment will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah. But any of you that is devout, obedient, and submissive in the service to Allah and His Messenger, and does good, to her shall We grant her reward twice. We have prepared for her a generously rich provision." When situational scriptures focus on murdering neighbors, stealing property, and sexual submissiveness, we have a problem. Good and bad Muslims alike have read these "scriptures" for 1400 years, and yet they seem oblivious to the fact they are ungodly. Therefore, one of only two conclusions can be drawn. Either Islam has corrupted souls and corroded minds to the point that Muslims can no longer reason, or the sword of Islam has prevented them from acting rationally. But either way, unless we free Muslims from Islam and establish in its stead a credible educational curriculum, there is no hope. Tyranny and terror will march on for benefit of cleric and king.
Your quote from the outdated 1600s English translation of Quran 33:30 : "O Consorts of the Prophet! if any of you were guilty of evident unseemly conduct, the Punishment would be doubled to her, and that is easy for Allah." Quran 33:31 "But any of you that is devout in the service of Allah and His Messenger, and works ighteousness, to her shall We grant her reward twice: and We have prepared for her a generous ustenance."
Qur'an 33:32 in the context of POD: Under the pretense of Qur'an revelation, Muhammad lectured his wives and put down the revolt that emanated from his incestuous act. 33.32 "O Consorts of the Prophet! You are not like any of the (other) women. Fear and keep your duty, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire. Stay quietly in your apartment. Make not a dazzling display like that of the former times of Ignorance. Perform the devotion, pay the zakat; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah wishes to cleanse you with a thorough cleansing. And bear in mind that which is recited in your houses of the revelations of Allah and the wisdom." It's hard to believe that anyone thinks these self-serving words are scripture.
The same Quran 33:32 from a single translation which you quoted: "O Consorts of the Prophet! ye are not like any of the (other) women: if ye do fear (Allah), be not too complaisant of speech, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire: but speak ye a speech (that is) just." Quran 33:33 "And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance: and establish Regular Prayer, and give Regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye Members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless. Quran 33:34 "And recite what is rehearsed to you in your homes, of the Signs of Allah and His Wisdom: for Allah understands the finest mysteries and is well-acquainted (with them)."
Here are the same verses in several other translations including your favorite. Pesonally, I like the Noble Qur'an from the King Fahd Complex by Dr. Kahn best as it is the most literal. I also like the Ahmed Ali translation as its English is the most contemporary. Also, with the Medina surahs, I benefit from having translations included in Ishaq and Tabari. The combination of the translations below and the Noble, Ahmed Ali, Ishaq, and Tabari form the basis of every translations in POD:
YUSUFALI: O Consorts of the Prophet! Ye are not like any of the (other) women: if ye do fear (Allah), be not too complacent of speech, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire: but speak ye a speech (that is) just.
PICKTHAL:O ye wives of the Prophet! Ye are not like any other women. If ye keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft of speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease aspire (to you), but utter customary speech.
SHAKIR: O wives of the Prophet! you are not like any other of the women; If you will be on your guard, then be not soft in (your) speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease yearn; and speak a good word.
YUSUFALI: And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless.
PICKTHAL: And stay in your houses. Bedizen not yourselves with the bedizenment of the Time of Ignorance. Be regular in prayer, and pay the poor-due, and obey Allah and His messenger. Allah's wish is but to remove uncleanness far from you, O Folk of the Household, and cleanse you with a thorough cleansing.
SHAKIR: And stay in your houses and do not display your finery like the displaying of the ignorance of yore; and keep up prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying.
YUSUFALI: And recite what is rehearsed to you in your homes, of the Signs of Allah and His Wisdom: for Allah understands the finest mysteries and is well-acquainted (with them).
PICKTHAL: And bear in mind that which is recited in your houses of the revelations of Allah and wisdom. Lo! Allah is Subtile, Aware.
SHAKIR: And keep to mind what is recited in your houses of the communications of Allah and the wisdom; surely Allah is Knower of subtleties, Aware.
You move on to Qur'an 35-6: "For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward." "It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger, to have any option about their decision: if anyone disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path."
Here they are in the context of POD: His harem in check, we find Muhammad confirming the central message of Islam: surrender, submit, obey, and pay. 33.35 "Lo! Men who surrender, and women who submit, and who believe and obey…who are humble, and pay the tax, and men who fast and guard their modesty and private parts - Allah hath prepared for them forgiveness and a vast reward." While forgiveness sounds religious, contemplate what one would be forgiven for - Allah has condoned every perverse act known to man. And while we're poking holes, ponder why a doctrine built on predestination rather than choice would even bother with forgiveness.
By way of example: 33.36 "It is not fitting for a Muslim man or woman to have any choice in their affairs when a matter has been decided for them by Allah and His Messenger. They have no option. If any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a wrong Path." That was a wonderful explanation of Muhammad's motivation for implementing Islam. And it coincides perfectly with Hitler's motivation for implementing Nazism.
Here they are in three parallel translations including your favorite:
YUSUFALI:For Muslim men and women,- for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in Charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise,- for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.
PICKTHAL:Lo! men who surrender unto Allah, and women who surrender, and men who believe and women who believe, and men who obey and women who obey, and men who speak the truth and women who speak the truth, and men who persevere (in righteousness) and women who persevere, and men who are humble and women who are humble, and men who give alms and women who give alms, and men who fast and women who fast, and men who guard their modesty and women who guard (their modesty), and men who remember Allah much and women who remember - Allah hath prepared for them forgiveness and a vast reward.
SHAKIR:Surely the men who submit and the women who submit, and the believing men and the believing women, and the obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women and the humble men and the humble women, and the almsgiving men and the almsgiving women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and the women who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember-- Allah has epared for them forgiveness and a mighty reward.
YUSUFALI:It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path.
PICKTHAL:And it becometh not a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His messenger have decided an affair (for them), that they should (after that) claim any say in their affair; and whoso is rebellious to Allah and His messenger, he verily goeth astray in error manifest.
SHAKIR:And it behoves not a believing man and a believing woman that they should have any choice in their matter when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter; and whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he surely strays off a manifest straying.
The Noble Qur'an, even without the added parentheticals, is verbose: Verily the Muslims men and women, the believers men and women, the men and the women who are obedient, the men and women who are truthful, the men and the women who are patient, the men and the women who are humble, the men and the women who pay the Zakat, the men and teh women who observe fasts, the men and the women who guard their chasity and the men and the women who remember Allah much with their hearts and tongues Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a gread reward. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error.
You concluded with: Now Craig, how much of your ugly mentality and sadistic nature do you want me to expose? I have proved that you are manipulating the Koranic verses to suit your evil mission, which is to turn the people against Muslims. Tell me how much are you getting paid by the Zoinists to do them this service? It is not our Prophet Muhammed who is perverse but you and your bosses, who in the last 50 years have buthered and raped so many Arabs and continue to do so even today.
As ever, Islam destroys a Muslim's ability to think. Muhammad and Allah, according to the Qur'an and Hadith, butcher Jews and Arabs, and it's the victims who are at fault. I expose Muhammad's sadistic nature based upon the Islamic scriptures and I'm sadistic. That makes as much sense as suggesting that the Zionists are paying me for an evil mission.
I do, however have a boss. And my boss is the Zionist boss. His name is Yawhweh. He is God. (Craig)
Finally you are confessing that you are a Zionist! (BH)
Yahweh, the Creator of the universe, the Spirit who inspired the Bible, the spirit who sacrificed Himself as He predicted on a cross on the same place Abraham performed the dress rehearsal 2000 years prior so that you and I might be forgiven and live eternally with Him, the Spirit who lives inside of me, my Boss, my Friend, my Father, is a Zionist. The Jews are his chosen people. He loves Israel more than any other place on earth.
And ultimately, that drives to the heart of the matter. Yahweh decided to reveal Himself to humankind through the Jews. He chose to save humankind through the Jews. He choose the crossroads of the world as his holy city. Neither you nor I were asked for our input. While he loves us, and while wants us to make an important choice, these choices were his, not ours.
Yahweh made another choice that you need to know about. In the Ten Commandments he revealed that he would not tolerate false prophets like Muhammad, false gods like Allah, or false doctrines like Islam. Moreover, according to the Third Commandment: "You shall not nasa (advance or accept) the shem (character or mark) of Yahweh (I Am - the Creator's name) your elohiym (deity) in shav (an evil, destructive, deceptive, or false manner), for Yahweh will not hold him naqah (clean, innocent, or blameless) who nasa (advances or accepts) His shem (character or mark) shav (evilly, destructively, deceptively, or falsely)." My mission is to fulfill the 3rd Commandment as it relates to Islam.
Yahweh made many predictions about how Satan would use Islam to damn souls. Some of the most haunting examples are explained in POD.
For the answer to the question of Satan, let's turn to the book that introduced the world to this demonic spirit. The name Lucifer is only mentioned once in the entire Bible. In the midst of his prophecy on World War III - the all Islamic war to be launched against Israel in the last days - Isaiah says this about Islam and its dark spirit: "The rule of the oppressor [nagras: one who uses tyranny to harass, tax, and oppress, i.e., Islam] will come to an end. Those who smote [nakah: to strike, exile, murder, punish, or slaughter] the Jews in rage and anger with unceasing blows, and in fury subdued [terrorized] the nations with relentless aggression, will be prosecuted. Hell itself will be moved. The pompous gloating leaders, arrogantly swelling with pride and boastful speech will be brought from their graves like maggots spread out. How you have fallen, cast out of heaven, O Lucifer, the one with the brightness of the morning star. You have been cast down to the earth and diminished. You used prostration to weaken the Gentile nations. You boasted 'I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above God. I will abide in the meeting place on the most sacred Mount [Moriah - home of Lucifer's most flamboyant shrine: the Dome of the Rock]. You said, 'I will make myself like the Most High.' But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit…. The offspring of the wicked will not rise up to inherit the land [Israel] or rule over the earth." (Isaiah 14 amplified from the original Hebrew.)
The prophet Isaiah connected many of the dots for us. He reveals that Lucifer was a fallen angel and that pride led to his ruin. He is destructive, leading men to their doom. And he wants to be worshiped in place of Yahweh. Further, he connects Lucifer to Islam by saying that he is the inspiration of those who oppress the Jews and covet their land. The fact he uses "prostration" to weaken the Gentile nations is quite a clue.
"Satan" is Lucifer's title. It means "The Adversary." John, in Revelation, writes: "I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, or Satan. He bound him for a thousand years. He shut him up so that he could no longer deceive the nations." (Revelation 20) Satan is a derogatory title for Lucifer - a spirit who deceives and leads men astray. Lucifer, of course, detests "The Adversary" title, as he wants to be God, not God's opponent. Adverse means unfavorable, unpleasant, poor, or undesirable. It's not the kind of image a spirit who wants to be worshiped would be fond of having hung around his neck.
Understanding Lucifer and his disdain for the Adversary, or Satanic title, is central to understanding the spirit that underlies Islam, the spirit that enticed and inspired Muhammad to such egregious behavior. Paul, speaking to the Corinthians of the false doctrine and prophet to come said: "I am concerned that just as Eve was deceived and beguiled by the serpent's cunning, your minds may someday be corrupted. For if someone comes and preaches another Yahshua who is different, if you receive another spirit, or hear a different Gospel, you may be susceptible. I may not possess eloquent speech or be an Apostle who requires your obedience, but I know what is true and have manifest it to you…. The truth of Christ is in me. And I will continue doing this in order to cut the ground from under those who would seize the opportunity to boast about. For such men are false prophets, deceitful teachers, masquerading as messengers of God. And no wonder, for Satan transfigures and disguises himself into an angel of light [i.e., Lucifer pretends to be Gabriel]." (2 Corinthians 11 amplified from the original Greek.)
Paul is saying that Lucifer will transform himself into the image of an angel and deceive men using a false prophet. The messenger will be boastful, yet speak eloquently; he will be deceitful, yet require obedience. He will come with a new Gospel. He is speaking of Muhammad and his Qur'an.
By putting these things together we discover that Lucifer, as presented in the Bible, is a perfect match for Allah, the demented and deceitful spirit of the Qur'an. And we know that Lucifer hates the Satanic title. So now, the only pieces of the puzzle that remain are why Lucifer chose to disguise himself as Gabriel and why he chose Muhammad to be his prophet.
The Hebrew word for "angel" means "messenger." And the angel named Gabriel was only called to deliver three messages. The first is to Daniel. He told the prophet the exact day the Messiah would enter Jerusalem, five hundred years in advance of the occasion. He spoke of the destruction of the Temple, which followed Christ's crucifixion and resurrection. Then Gabriel told Daniel that Satan would cause great devastation that he would defile Mount Moriah in the last days. The second and then final time we hear from Gabriel is in the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke. Gabriel relays a message heralding the birth of John the Baptist - the one who announced the Messiah's arrival. And he told Mary she would give birth to Yahshua, the Son of Yahweh. In other words, Gabriel had only one job: announce the arrival of the Messiah. Lucifer chose to impersonate him because his Muhammad was the counterfeit Messiah. So now we know who the players are and why they are acting so devilishly.
Yes, BH, just as the eyewitnesses in the Qur'an claimed and just as Muhammad admits in his Hadith, Islam's prophet was demon possessed. Lucifer disguised himself as Gabriel and inspired the Qur'an. That is why Allah's book condemns Jews, that is why it perverts the Christ's message and denies his sacrifice. That is why Muhammad waged war on the Ten Commandments. That is why you can copy and paste Qur'an verses that are immoral and criminal and not be bothered by them. It is why the Qur'an is so full of messages about pain and punishment. It is why the Qur'an's paradise is a brothel. It is why the Qur'an's message is so hateful and violent. It is why Allah wants Muslims to sacrifice their money and their lives fighting and killing for him.
Allah's message is the opposite of Yahweh's message. So is the nature of sacrifice. Rather than you making it, He made it. That is the good news for which the Gospels were named. (Craig)
Forget about Islam, what do you know about faith and religions anyway? who are you to judge? (AB)
I'd be happy to forget Islam if men were not flying planes into buildings yelling "Allahu Akbar." I'd forget Islam if it weren't for the fact that 90% of terror in the world is directly related to the 20% of people who call themselves Muslims. I'd forget Islam if the dogma as it is presented in the Hadith and Qur'an wasn't so intolerant, hateful, racist, deceitful, and violent. I'd forget Islam if Islamic nations gave their people the freedom to choose their faith rather than following the Qur'an's order to kill anyone who rejects Islam.
As for why I judge--I work for Yahweh, the God of the Bible. He told us to judge false prophets, false gods, and false doctrines. (Craig)
Finally, you are not the first and certainly won't be the last to try to defame Islam and Muhammad (PBUH) that never hurt Islam one bit and it is still moving as the fastest growing religion you can't deny it. Also, Christian missionaries and scholars try all the time but are refuted all the time too. (AB)
I don't have to defame Islam and Muhammad. The Islamic scriptures do that job for me. You ought to read them.
Islam is growing only because of population explosion in the Islamic world and because Muslims kill those who reject Islam.
And sadly, there is another reason Islam continues to grow. Its deception is seductive. Clerics and kings have deceived people like you into believing that Muhammad was a prophet and that Allah was a god. And that is particularly easy as Muslims don't read or understand their own scriptures. If you would read Ishaq's Sira, the History of Tabari, or even the Qur'an set in the context of Muhammad's life, you wouldn't be a Muslim. Islam wins with ignorance. You lose the same way. (Craig)
What you are doing will not affect Muslims one bit, but really your goal is to try to stir away the > non-muslims so Islam doesn't grow but not working and will never work. (AB)
My only job is to expose what the Islamic scriptures have to say about Muhammad, his god, and the formation of Islam so that you would be without excuse. What you and others choose do do with that information is up to you. (Craig)
I find from looking into your site that for all your research your knowledge of islam is lacking. You obviously have an agenda, and I believe this agenda is blinding you from veiwing islam objectively. For instance, inorder for me to receive a accurate interpertation of a bibical verse I would go to those christian sources with the authority to speak on these issuses. I would not just make up my own interpertation, but from what I've seen from your site thats excatly what you did. In the future, I would suggest for quranic explaination you use Tafseer Ibn Kathir Vol 1-10. There are also many different websites you can access for accurate explainations for many of the issues you raised on your site. Salafipublications.com, Qss.org, efatwa.com, dkh-islam.com, al-ibaanah.com, al-manhaj.com, and thewahhabimyth.com are good places to start if you are sincere in trying to understand what the Quran and Sunnah are conveying. If all if this is still not enough to dispell the inaccuracies on your website, there is a person who translates hadiths who is qualified to do so. His name is Abu Khalily, and he can be contacted at his website dkh-islam.com. May God guide you to the truth. (AD)
Thanks for your note. I do have an agenda. I want to expose the Islam of Muhammad and Allah because it is inspiring Muslim militants to kill Muslims and non-Muslims alike. I have very little interest in people's opinions and interpretations. If Allah and Muhammad got Islam wrong, no one has it right. That is why I organized 2000 Muhammad and Allah quotes by subject without commentary in the book and on the site.
The Qur'an is not like the Bible. It has little context and no chronology. To be understood, it needs to be read in conjunction with either Ishaq's Sira or Tabari's Ta'rikh. They are the only chronological presentations of Islamic Hadith written within 300 years of Muhammad's death. Bukhari and Muslim are helpful, confirming, and complementary, but they also lack context and chronology.
Collectively, these books present a story that does not need to be interpreted, just read. Muhammad's and Allah's words are sufficiently damning. They conduct, endorse and promote some of the most vile and evil behavior known to man.
What I find troubling about Islam is that its clerics purposely deceive. Most Muslims who write me make claims that are completely inconsistent with the Qur'an and Sunnah. I always respond by quoting the Qur'an and Sunnah to show that it says one thing while the clerics are saying something entirely different. While I understand why they do it, I'm saddened by how many people they have deceived for personal and temporal gain.
It's this simple. Either Ishaq and Tabari are right and Muhammad and his god were among the most evil, racist, deceitful, intolerant, and violent souls ever, or they are wrong. If Ishaq's and Tabari's Hadith collections are wrong then too little is known about Allah's lone voice, Islam's lone prophet, the religion's formation and the first Muslims to form the basis of anything worth killing for.
If you want to understand the Bible read it yourself. Reading someone's opinion of it is only valuable if they are right and if they have used the oldest and most accurate textual material. Besides, Yahweh, the God of the Bible, is a great communicator. His message is very clear in any language. (Craig)
You are the most ignorant person on earth. (AM)
I am consistently amazed at the willingness of some to attack the messenger rather than the message. I have revealed what the Hadith, especially the Sira, has to say about Muhammad and the formation of Islam. If you don't like the character, words, and deeds attributed to Muhammad by the only source written within 200 years of his death, don't blame me.
Ultimately, only one of two things can be true. Either the Sira is right and Muhammad was a horrible man, or the Sira is wrong and all Muslims are ignorant of their lone prophet and of Allah's lone conduit. (Craig)
People like you have lost their right to literacy solely because you practice and preach hate. (AK).
I do not believe you are ignorant.... I do believe you have an agenda to push. (JC)
Unable to refute the message, Muslims and the politcally correct crowd attack the messenger. That is a very weak position. Prophet Of Doom isn't a book about me; the vast majority of it wasn't even written by me. POD is about Muhammad, his god Allah, and the formation of Islam as depicted in the Islamic scriptures. If you don't like their message, don't blame me. I'm just the messenger. (Craig)
I hope someday you will have the decency to feel the shame that you are bringing upon yourself. Why don't you try doing good and helping people instead of trying to destroy a beautiful religion? What you are doing is not good or helpful to anyone. (JC)
Exposing Islam while enduring condescending and misguided comments like yours is the most decent, loving, and worthy thing I have ever done. There is nothing that can do more good for more people than helping free them from the fraud that Muhammad perpetrated on humankind.
To see Islam as "beautiful," you either have to be ignorant of who Muhammad actually was or you have to see terrorism, fighting, piracy, thievery, murder, slavery, deception, rape, incest, pedophilia, womanizing, and torture as "beautiful." I'm not, and I don't. (Craig)
