In the words of the prophet Muhammad.
Bukhari:V4B52N220 “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror. The treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.”
Bukhari:V4B52N260 “The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.”
Bukhari:V7B67N427 “The Prophet said, ‘If I take an oath and later find something else better than that, then I do what is better and expiate my oath.”
lesson for the Infidel:
Clearly in the words of the Prophet Muhammad, Islam endorses terrorism and promotes its use in the taking of the property of non-believers. Islam requires that all who are born into Islam remain slaves to Allah for their entire lives. Those who wish to practice their God-given free will are to be murdered. In Islam no Muslim is required to keep his word to another.
Ask yourself: Would a true prophet of God use terrorism? Would a true prophet of God rob others of their property? Would a true prophet of God deny your free will? Would a true prophet of God murder and encourage his followers to murder? Would a true prophet of God break his oath?
Now ask yourself: Why does anyone think that Islam is actually a religion? BR
Elevation or Crucifixion of Jesus?
Imam Ibn Kathir
Stories of the Prophets
“And when Allah said: ‘O Jesus! I will take you and lift you up to Me, and purify you of those who disbelieve, and will make those who followed you above those who disbelieved until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me shall you all return, and I shall judge between you in that which you dispute.’” (3:54,55)
Then He said in Surat An-Nisa’:
“For their breaking the covenant, and their disbelief in Allah ’s Signs, and their slaying the Prophets unjustly, and for their saying: ‘Our hearts are impermeable’. No, but Allah has set a seal upon them for their blasphemy, so little it is what they believe. And for their rejection to the Faith, and for their uttering against Mary a monstrous lie.” (4:155,156)
“And for their saying (in boast): ‘We killed Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’; but they killed him not nor crucified him. Only a likeness of that was shown to them. And those who differ therein are full of doubt with no certain knowledge, but only follow mere conjecture, for of a surety they killed him not. But Allah lifted him up to Him, and Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. And there is none of the people of the Book, but will believe in him before his death, and on the Day of Judgment, he will be a witness against them.” (4:157-159)
These Verses tell us that Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) was lifted up to the heaven after his opponents from Jews complained and misled the king of that time, as they wanted to slay him and crucify him.
Ibn Abu Hatim has narrated from Ibn Abbas saying: “‘When Allah wanted to lift him up to heaven, Jesus came to his companions in the house. There were twelve people, with some from among his disciples. He had just a bath, and his head was still dribbling with water. He said to them: ‘There are those among you who will disbelieve in me twelve times after he had believed in me! Then he said: ‘Who will from among you take my likeness and be killed in my place, so will become in my rank?’ A young youth came forwards. But Jesus said to him: ‘Sit down! Then he repeated the same question, and the same youth stood up and came forwards, and said: ‘I.’ Jesus said: ‘You are the one,’ and then the likeness of Jesus was put on him, and Jesus was lifted up to the heaven from the window of his house.
Jews came looking for him. They took the youth and killed him and then crucified him. Later they became three groups. One group, who are called Jacobites (Yaqubiyah), believe that it was God Himself among them who stayed with them as long as He wanted to, then went back to the heaven. Another group who are called Nestorian (Nasturiyah), believed that it was the son of God who was with them, and stayed among them as long as he wanted, then his father lifted him up. But the group of true believers said that he was the slave of Allah and His Messenger who stayed among them as long as he wanted, then his Lord Allah took him up to Him. The two disbeliever groups collided together against the believer group and killed them, and so real teachings of Islam taught by Jesus became obscure till Allah sent the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Hasan Basri and Ibn Ishaq said: The king who ordered the killing of Jesus, was David bin Naura. He commanded Jesus to be killed and hanged. They surrounded Jesus who was in a house inside Bait-ul-Maqdis. It was a Saturday night. When they were about to enter the house, his likeness was put on one of those who were present there with him. And Jesus was lifted up from the window of that house to the heaven. When the police entered the house they found the youth on whom the likeness of Jesus was put, so they took him and crucified him. Even they put a crown of thorns on his head to mock him. Those Christians who were not present there at that time, believed what Jews claimed, that they killed Jesus.
Allah said: “And there is none of the people of the Book, but will believe in him before his death, and on the Day of Judgment, he will be a witness against them.” This refers to the time when Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) will descend to the earth before the Day of Judgment, and kill the swine, break the Cross, impose the levy, and will not be pleased but with Islam.”‘
Ibn Jarir has narrated from Wahb bin Munabbih, saying: Jesus came along with seventeen of his disciples to a house. Then police came and surrounded the house. However, when they entered the house, Allah put the likeness of Jesus on all of those who were there. They were confused, and said: “You have bewitched us. Either Jesus come to us, or we will kill of you.” Jesus said to his companions: “Who can buy today a place in Jannah (Paradise)?” A man said: “I”‘ and went out, claiming: “I am Jesus.” They took him and crucified him, and so they were deluded in their belief that they have killed Jesus, and so are the Christians. But Jesus was lifted up to Allah on that day.
Ibn `Asakir said: Mary lived after Jesus for five years, and then died at the age of fifty-three years.
Hasan Basri said: Jesus was thirty-four years old when he was lifted to the heaven. Sa’id bin Musayyib said: He was thirty-three years old when he was raised up to the heaven.
lesson for the Infidel:
In the above lesson Imam Ibn Kathir clearly shows us that the Qur`an denies that Jesus died upon the cross. In the Muslim version a young boy volunteers to take the place of Jesus and is given Jesus’ likeness just prior to Jesus himself ascending into heaven and avoiding his arrest. In other words the crucifixion and suffering of Jesus that is the core of Christian beliefs is a lie. God and his Son who took on a mortal form have committed a fraud before the people and only Muhammad was told the truth of what actually happened. This is what the Muslim world thinks about Christianity. What do you think? BR
Separation Of Church And State
Dr. Ja`far Sheikh Idris
Explaining the practice of this theory – and what it means to Muslims.
AlJumuah Magazine Volume 13 Issue 3
Separation of church and state is widely accepted in the West and thus has become a globally political thought. Historically, the idea emerged as a practical strategy for dealing with issues related to the Christians and other people in the Western culture.
Gradually, however, separation of church and state has become a popular premise for all modern states. It is now seen that citizenship rather than religion should be the basis for belonging to a state, since different citizens may have different religions. If the state commits to one religion, members of other faiths would feel alienated since a foreign religion would be imposed upon them. They may be prohibited from practicing the rituals of their religion and they may be deprived of their right to hold certain positions in the state, such as president, or other key positions. This would create disturbances and conflicts that would present obstacles for the progress of the state.
For these reasons, advocates of this policy of separation find that it is best if a state takes a secular approach, neither supporting nor denying any religion. It is up to the citizens to follow whatever faith and values they choose and practice what rituals they please.
This is the ideal side of a neutral secular state that Western politicians wish to project. However, the theory of separation of state and religion makes several underlying assumptions that are hard to come by in the real world. Let us consider some of them.
It is assumed that it is possible for a secular state to take a neutral stand toward all religions, based on the implication that religion interferes with, and possibly upsets, matters of state. This could be the case if there was in fact no relationship between state affairs and religion, and the two were separate entities. However, religions do not only deal with collections of beliefs, rituals and individual behaviours that do not affect the society. Most of the well known religions -Judaism, Christianity and Islam- have laws that regulate relationships between people; whether on an individual basis, among the family, or with the society at large, in addition to other laws observed regarding food and drink, and many other daily details that cannot be separated from the business of the state.
To accommodate for this, Western politicians had to make a compromise. They decided to include some of the values of their religion -Christianity- in the making of the rules of the state. And Christian values are certainly vivid in Western foreign policy, particularly in its dealings with the Islamic world. At the same time, some important aspects of the Christian religion were left out. Recent liberal movements have come to attack The Sacred Book of Christianity, claiming that what was always believed to be the word of God is no more than the writings of people who were deeply influenced by the culture in which they lived. This view was supported by the existence of many different versions of the Bible with discrepancies between them. Thus, certain restrictions made in the scriptures, such as homosexual behaviour, should be seen as mere laws of the society at a certain time so that there would be no reason to abide by such dated laws today. This movement has gained support from politicians, leaders and even scholars of religion. The result is that secularism has taken a life of its own and is no longer a neutral or unbiased point of view. It might be seen as a religion in itself, which, in the West, has its own fervent followers who attack and fight Christianity.
So how are Muslims to approach the modern trend of separation of religion and state? The basic belief in Islam is that the Qur’an is one hundred percent the word of Allah, and the Sunna was also as a result of the guidance of Allah to the Prophet sallallahu allayhe wasalam. Islam cannot be separated from the state because it guides us through every detail of running the state and our lives. Muslims have no choice but to reject secularism for it excludes the law of Allah.
Supporters of the secular state argue that the values of one religion cannot be imposed on members of different religions that are present in our countries. However, whether the non-Muslims in a state are few or many, secularism is not the answer. The non-Muslims in Muslim states will either be secularists themselves, in favour of abandoning the laws of Islam in the state, or will be devoted followers of their own religion, who wish that the state follow the rules of that religion. So in either case, a compromise cannot be made in accordance with the Islamic point of view. What needs to be pointed out is that under the law of Islam, other religions are not prohibited. At the same time, people are provided with doctrines for legislation and running of state that will protect people of all faiths living in the state.
Secularists in the West will agree with this, then they will point out that under Islamic law, people are not all equal. No non-Muslim, for example, could become the president. Well, in response to that fact, in turn, secularism is no different. No Muslim could become president in a secular regime, for in order to pledge loyalty to the constitution, a Muslim would have to abandon part of his belief and embrace the belief of secularism — which is practically another religion. For Muslims, the word ‘religion’ does not only refer to a collection of beliefs and rituals, it refers to a way of life which includes all values, behaviours, and details of living.
Secularism cannot be a solution for countries with a Muslim majority or even a sizeable minority, for it requires people to replace their God-given beliefs with an entirely different set of man-made beliefs. Separation of religion and state is not an option for Muslims because is requires us to abandon Allah’s decree for that of a man.
lesson for the Infidel:
Dr Ja`dar Sheikh Idris is an Islamic scholar recognized all over the world for his knowledge. When Dr Idris said, “Islam cannot be separated from the state because it guides us through every detail of running the state and our lives. Muslims have no choice but to reject secularism for it excludes the law of Allah.” There is NO room for further interpretation. If for some reason the guidance to some facet of one’s life can not be found directly addressed in the Qur`an itself, then all we have to do is ask “What did Muhammad do in a similar situation?” Reading the Sunna will answer that question.
This is why Islam is the only religion that I know of that has explicit rules on the proper way that adult males can sexually molest female infants. Yes, the language of these rules is explicit and I will not publish them here, but there is a right way and a wrong way to be a child molester if you are a Muslim. If you do it like the Prophet Muhammad it’s OK, if you break the rules you can be punished. So what is the punishment for molesting a baby girl in the wrong way? According to Sharia Law wrongly molesting a baby girl will ban you for life from marrying any of her sisters.
With this in mind, please go back and read the last two paragraphs of Dr Idris’ lesson. Ask yourself if this is what you want for the future of our nation. BR
