CAIR Spokesman Ibrahim Hooper Spews al-Taqiyya and Kitman, Denigrating Christ

Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR spewed malignant malarkey, asserting falsely that Muslims love Jesus Christ. He cherry picked Qur'an verses which superficially make his case of common ground.  But the common ground turns to quicksand when we delve more deeply into Islam's canon. 

    The Qur"an denies Christ's paternity & deity in 1930...34 and his crucifixion, death and resurrection in 4.157.  Authentic hadith depict him as inferior to Moe in Sahih Bukhari 6.60.3 and as a genocidal warlord who will eliminate the remaining Jews and Christians in Sahih Bukhari 4.55.653  & Sunan Abu Dawud  37.4310. For greater clarity, see Tafsir Ibn Kathir:  "Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews" For full documentation, see: "The Defamation Of Jesus Christ".

    Allah explicitly forbids Muslims from being on friendly or equal terms with Christians:    5.519.33; they can not be our friends and Islam must be dominant.
The Qur'an curses us: 2:161, 9.30. Allah calls us "the worst of living creatures" 8.22. 98.6. Every time they pray, Muslims recite Surah Al-Fatiuha, reminding Allah why he should burn us.

    Allah commands Muslims to wage war against us until we are subjugated, acknowledge the superiority of Islam and make annual extortion payments: 9.29,. which is confirmed by Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 and codified in Shari'ah as The Reliance Of The Traveller O9.9.

    Muslims are commanded not to greet us first and to force us to the narrowest part of the road. They are commanded to pray for Moe in 33.56 because he was a sinner who did not know "what Allah will do with me". When Muslims append PBUH to the Profit's title, they are praying that Allah will lessen the torments of the grave for Moe.  [For the grisly details, see Mishkat ul-Misabih]  When Muslims say "Jesus, PBUH" they are denigrating him, equating him to a sinner who is being tormented in his grave whereas the sinless Christ's tomb is empty.

    Hooper does not directly assert that Jesus is a Muslim, but he quotes a hadith that implies it. I have added emphasis to make two phrases stand out. 

” Prophet Muhammad said: “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.”

    The Prophets are paternal brothers: they have a common father; Moe is claiming to be Christ's half brother; remember that Islam denies Christ's paternity.  Born 530 years apart, they could not share a human father. Islam and Christianity are not identical, they are not even close. Islam is a predatory way of life which preys upon the rest of the human race.  The original religion of Islam is Jihad.

    What sort of Prophet would claim that God married him to the mother of his half-brother?  What sort of Prophet would be married to the Mother of Jesus?
Ibn Babawayh has narrated that when Khadija was near her
departure to the eternal world, the Prophet visited her and said, “To me it is a heavy
burden to see you thus, but when you reach your place in Paradise give your companions
my salutation.” 
“Who are they?” she inquired. He replied, “Maryam, daughter of Imran, Kulthum, sister of
Musa, Asiya wife of Firon, all of whom, with yourself, will be my wives in Paradise.” “May
the union be blessed,” added Khadija.  [Hayat al-Qulub, pg. 415 http://www.al-islam.org/printpdf/book/export/html/19336]   

        The claim that Jesus is Muslim falls flat on its face when we see that Moe was the first Muslim:  6.14, 39.12, Lest any lingering doubt remain, compare the orders given by Jesus and Moe in case of rejection : 
  • And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.Mt 10.14
  • If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them. Sahih Muslim 19.4294

Responding to an Anonymous Cpmment on Reliance of the Traveller

Reliance of the Traveller: Handbook of Shari'ah was published to provide information about Islamic law, known as Shari'ah. It focuses on Reliance of the Traveller, the most widely known and accepted codification of fiqh.   That post has been receiving about four hits per day for several months.  I guess that interest in Shari'ah is being aroused by the controversy over proposed legislation to exclude foreign law from domestic court decisions. 

    A lengthy anonymous comment on the post needs more attention than the comment format permits.  I am therefore blogging it here with a post of its own. The comment is reproduced below, unedited. My point by point response follows below the horizontal line. 

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Reliance of the Traveller: Handbook of Shari'ah":

You are far from Jesus' teachings, and especially his message of love.

You harm your self and spread hatred with your falsehoods.

You could actually benefit from the truth and the beauty of the teachings you are slandering.

The kufar are not Christians and Jews. They are "people of the book" meaning people who have received revelations from God, however much they ignore them or distort them. Kufar are idol worshippers. If you honestly read the Quran or the Hadith, leaving behind the prejudice and hatred, you might recognize that the revelations in the Quran, the life and teachings of Muhammad, s.a.w., and the ways laid out from these in the shariah, flow from the same Divine sources as the best of the old and new testaments, and the examples and teachings of Jesus, s.a.w. and the Prophets, s.a.w..

Indeed, I found the truth of Islam first by studying the words and actions of Jesus s.a.w., the prophet, the guide, the good shepherd, the teacher, the lover of all men and women, good and bad, the one who prayed, who fell down on his face in worship, and in complete submission to God, who asked forgiveness and help from his Lord and our Lord, his Father and our Father.

This is Islam. There is nothing more to it. This is the real Shariah as well, as developed by Muslim lawyers from the Quran and the teachings and example of Muhammad s.a.w, as well as the example and teachings of the other prophets in the Quran: Ibrahim, Moses, and Jesus among others.

As for the particulars of your errors, there are too many to mention in less than a book, but for starters:

Zakat can and was given to dhimma during the time when there were actual Muslim countries that followed Shariah. It is mandatory, not just allowed. (If anyone was following Shariah).

Dhimmis (non-Muslim loyal citizens of a Muslim country) were not required (or allowed) to be in the army under shariah. They also did not pay the Zakat (state tax) which paid for the defense of the Muslim state. They paid a substitute tax, which was approximately the same, and they shared in all of the benefits of the state (today the Republicans would call them "socialist" because the state assured the health, welfare and education of all of its citizens.)

The Quran, and Islamic Law forbid offensive wars, and allow only defensive wars. Self-defense is a natural right. From its beginning Islam and Muslims have been under attack starting with the pagan Qureish and the Jews of Medina, then the Christian Emperor of Rome and the Persian fire worshippers. Later it was Crusaders, and now the Zionists and the Christians who defame and bring war to Muslim lands.

For centuries Jews, Christians, and other faiths were protected. Jews and Christians sought sanctuary in Muslim countries (Iraq, Syria, Palestine) from the Inquisition. They were received by Muslim rulers and lived peacefully for centuries with Muslims until the UN created Israel displacing Palestinians.

The oldest Christian churches and Jewish synagogues still operate and serve in Muslim majority countries. They thrived there while those countries lived under shariah law. Their ancient churches and monasteries still operate despite the despotic regimes now prevalent.

No Muslim country has followed shariah in two hundred years. The imperial powers eliminated it along with Islamic education, politics, trade, and finance systems. So today Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and other "Muslim" countries in their institutions and law ignore the teaching and example of the prophet Mohammed, s.a.w., the Shariah, just as you ignore the teaching and example of the prophet Jesus Christ s.a.w..

My reply will not be published, so it addresses only you.
I pray that God guide you to the truth, and that the example of Jesus with his love for all, the sinner and the saint, soften your heart and lead you to see, and I pray respect the truth, and quit propaganda.


Peace

Jesus' teachings

    Invoking Jesus to defend Islam and attack disbelievers is a common tactic to which I attach the label: AssWholliness.  My supposed remoteness from the teachings of Jesus is argumentum adhominem; an irrelevant logical fallacy. The facts and opinions I utter & publish stand on their own merit, not on my own lack of divine perfection. 

    What is the relevance of Christ's universal benevolence to a blog post about a codification of Shari'ah?  None, of course; a Muslim is trying to defend the indefensible by attacking me with my own savior.  There is one little problem: the attack has no merit; its malignant malarkey.

love

    Search the Qur'an for "Allah loves". I tried the Hilali & Khan translation and found seven surahs containing matches. At the risk of boring you to tears,. I present the relevant ayat, with highlighting to bring out important points and links so that you can check the context. In a few important cases, I include the context here. . 

  • 2:195. And spend in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd of all kinds, etc.) and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allâh), and do good. Truly, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good-doers). 
  • 2:222. They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore keep away from women during menses and go not unto them till they have purified (from menses and have taken a bath). And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allâh has ordained for you (go in unto them in any manner as long as it is in their vagina). Truly, Allâh loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves (by taking a bath and cleaning and washing thoroughly their private parts, bodies, for their prayers, etc.). 
  • 3:31. Say (O Muhammad  to mankind): "If you (really) love Allâh then follow me (i.e. accept Islâmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'ân and the Sunnah), Allâh will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." 
  • 3:76. Yes, whoever fulfils his pledge and fears Allâh much; verily, then Allâh loves those who are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). 
  • 3:134. Those who spend [in Allâh's Cause - deeds of charity, alms, etc.] in prosperity and in adversity, who repress anger, and who pardon men; verily, Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good­doers).
  • 3:146. And many a Prophet (i.e. many from amongst the Prophets) fought (in Allâh's Cause) and along with him (fought) large bands of religious learned men. But they never lost heart for that which did befall them in Allâh's Way, nor did they weaken nor degrade themselves. And Allâh loves As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.).
  • 3:147. And they said nothing but: "Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and our transgressions (in keeping our duties to You), establish our feet firmly, and give us victory over the disbelieving folk."
    3:148. So Allâh gave them the reward of this world, and the excellent reward of the Hereafter. And Allâh loves Al-Muhsinûn (the good­doers - see the footnote of V.3:134). 
  • 3:156. O you who believe! Be not like those who disbelieve (hypocrites) and who say to their brethren when they travel through the earth or go out to fight: "If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been killed," so that Allâh may make it a cause of regret in their hearts. It is Allâh that gives life and causes death. And Allâh is All­Seer of what you do.

    3:157. And if you are killed or die in the Way of Allâh, forgiveness and mercy from Allâh are far better than all that they amass (of worldly wealths, etc.).

    3:158. And whether you die, or are killed, verily, unto Allâh you shall be gathered.

    3:159. And by the Mercy of Allâh, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh­hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allâh's) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allâh, certainly, Allâh loves those who put their trust (in Him). 

  • 5:13. So because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard. They change the words from their (right) places and have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them. And you will not cease to discover deceit in them, except a few of them. But forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds). Verily, Allâh loves Al­Muhsinûn (good­doers - see V.2:112).  
  • 5:42. (They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad ), either judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with justice between them. Verily, Allâh loves those who act justly.
  • 5:54. O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islâm), Allâh will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allâh, and never afraid of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allâh which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allâh is All­Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All­Knower. 
  • 5:93. Those who believe and do righteous good deeds, there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the past), if they fear Allâh (by keeping away from His forbidden things), and believe and do righteous good deeds, and again fear Allâh and believe, and once again fear Allâh and do good deeds with Ihsân (perfection). And Allâh loves the good­doers
  • 9:3. And a declaration from Allâh and His Messenger to mankind on the greatest day (the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah - the 12th month of Islâmic calendar) that Allâh is free from (all) obligations to the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) and so is His Messenger. So if you (Mushrikûn) repent, it is better for you, but if you turn away, then know that you cannot escape (from the Punishment of) Allâh. And give tidings (O Muhammad ) of a painful torment to those who disbelieve.

    9:4. Except those of the Mushrikûn with whom you have a treaty, and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor have supported anyone against you. So fulfill their treaty to them to the end of their term. Surely Allâh loves Al- Mattaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2).

    9:5. Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islâmic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), and give Zakât, then leave their way free. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful

  • 9:7. How can there be a covenant with Allâh and with His Messenger for the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) except those with whom you made a covenant near Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah)? So long, as they are true to you, stand you true to them. Verily, Allâh loves Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). 
  • 9:108. Never stand you therein. Verily, the mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety is more worthy that you stand therein (to pray). In it are men who love to clean and to purify themselves. And Allâh loves those who make themselves clean and pure (i.e. who clean their private parts with dust [i.e. to be considered as soap) and water from urine and stools, after answering the call of nature]. 
  • 49:9. And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allâh; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allâh loves those who are equitable
  • 60:8. Allâh does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allâh loves those who deal with equity.
  • 61:4. Verily, Allâh loves those who fight in His Cause in rows (ranks) as if they were a solid structure .
    Allah loves those who do not throw themselves to destruction by shirking jihad. How sweet.  Allah will love you if you emulate Moe... a murdering lecher, pirate & pedophile.  Whoever fulfills his pledge is a reference to the Pledge of Ar-Ridwan: to fight to the death for Islam.  Allah loves those who spend in his cause; a reference to jihad with their lives and their wealth.  Allah forgives those who get killed in his wars.  Allah loves those who wipe their butts with sand.  Where is  Allah's love for mankind in general; for sinners?  3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.    (King James Bible, John)

    Islamic love and charity are for Muslims only. Muslims are commanded to shun their fathers and brothers if they are not Muslims.

    When you invoke Jesus Christ to condemn the facts I utter and publish,. you have a big problem, because I do not pull my punches.  Allah denies Christ's patrimony, deity, crucifixion, death & resurrection.   Moe's prophesies depict Jesus as less worthy than himself and a genocidal warlord who will return to kill the remaining Jews & Christians.  I refer doubters & dissenters to: The Defamation of Jesus Christ  for full documentation.

falsehoods

    I do not knowingly utter & publish falsehoods; I expose falsehoods!  There is nothing false in my post about Reliance of the Traveller.

truth and beauty

    If the truth & beauty of the teachings of Islam could be crystallized, the crystal would not be sufficient to plug a mosquito's proboscis.

people of the book

    Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians & Sabeans are classed by Allah as disbelievers. Allah commands Muslims to wage war against them until they are converted or subjugated and extorted.  The command is confirmed by confirmed by hadith and codified in Shari'ah.

the real Shariah


Zakat given to dhimma

    The law codified in Reliance explicitly forbids it.  I will quote it again and provide a direct link to the page.
hS.14 The fourth category is those whose hearts
are to be reconciled. If they are non-Muslims, they
are not given zakat, but if Muslims, then they may
be given it (0: so that their certainty may increase,
or if they are recent converts to Islam and are
alienated from their kin).
Those to be reconciled include:
(1) the chief personages of a people (0: with
weak Islamic intentions) whose Islam may be
expected to improve, or whose peers may be
expected to enter Islam;
(2) or the heads of a people who collect zakat
for us from Muslims living near them who refuse
to pay it, or who fight an enemy for us at considerable
expense and trouble to themselves.

hS.24 It is not permissible to give zakat to a nonMuslim,
or to someone whom one is obliged to
support (def: m12.1), such as a wife or family
member.


Risala agrees 31.3a1
That they are Muslims. If he gives it to the poor of the dhimmis, it is not allowed, as is the case
with zakat.

Hedaya agrees: Volume 1, Book I, Chapter VII, page 21
Zakat is discharged by the erroneous application
of it to an improper person.-IF
a person were to bestow Zakat on another.
erroneously supposing him to a proper
objeot of ~ its application, and should afterwards discover
tun to be rich or a Hashimee,
or an 1nfide1,...Zakat is considered to be fully
discharged, and no longer to remain due.-

Dhimmis

    Nobody became a Dhimmi without first being conquered or intimidated by Muslims.  Islam is a protection racket. Dhimmis paid Moe to protect themselves from him, and in one case the jizya was one half of their annual crop yield.  I direct the attention of doubters & dissenters to this hadith which describes Moe's orders to his commanders in the field.   " If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them..."

Quran, and Islamic Law forbid offensive wars

    There is no al-Taqiyya more offensive that this direct deception.  Offensive conquest is commanded, not forbidden!  The two principle jihad imperatives make no mention of being defensive or in response to attack. Read them and their tafsirs; bring forth facts with which to prove me wrong. 
  • 8:38. Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven. But if they return (thereto), then the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded (as a warning).

    8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

    •  
      • (And fight them until there is no more Fitnah...).'' Ibn `Umar said, "We did that during the time of the Messenger of Allah, when Islam was weak and the man would be tried in religion, either tormented to death or being imprisoned. When Islam became stronger and widespread, there was no more Fitnah.'' When the man realized that Ibn `Umar would not agree to what he is saying, he asked him, "What do you say about `Ali and `Uthman'' Ibn `Umar replied, "What do I say about `Ali and `Uthman! As for `Uthman, Allah has forgiven him, but you hate that Allah forgives him. As for `Ali, he is the cousin of the Messenger of Allah and his son-in-law,'' and he pointed with his hand saying, "And this is his house over there.'' Sa`id bin Jubayr said, "Ibn `Umar came to us and was asked, "What do you say about fighting during Fitnah'' Ibn `Umar said, "Do you know what Fitnah refers to Muhammad was fighting against the idolators, and at that time, attending (or residing with) the idolators was a Fitnah (trial in religion). It is nothing like what you are doing, fighting to gain leadership!'' All these narrations were collected by Al-Bukhari, may Allah the Exalted grant him His mercy. Ad-Dahhak reported that Ibn `Abbas said about the Ayah,

    • O9.9

      The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi' (y21), 6.48-49) ).

  • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 
    • The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
      • This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah's religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims' control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination.
    • O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

      The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

      "Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),

      the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace).  After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

      "I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"

      this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

    Allah said "fight them... until". Not those who attack you; them. The smug, smarmy, self-righteous Muslim, convinced of the superiority of his demon and himself, while substituting his anus for the brain Allah has eaten, supposes us to be so stupid, ignorant and indolent that we can neither discover nor comprehend objective factual reality.  There is no greater arrogance than that which asserts that offensive conquest is harram!

    Defensive jihad is covered in Surahs Surah Al-Hajj 22:39 and Al-Baqarah 2:190.  In Reliance, O9.0 defines jihad as war against non-Muslims. O9.1 defines the communal obligation. Offensive jihad is fard kifaya, only defensive jihad is fard ayn.  The minimum requirement is one ghazwat in every year, without which, if it were possible, all who know of it are sinners.

  • O9.1: The Obligatory Character of Jihad

    Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2).  When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others (O: the evidence for which is the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

    "He who provides the equipment for a soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad,"

    and Allah Most High having said:

    "Those of the believers who are unhurt but sit behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah's path with their property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind. And to each, Allah has promised great good" (Koran 4:95).

    If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

    The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, "Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year.

    The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants

    Exactly what part of that does Anonymous not comprehend?  Perhaps Al-Shafi'i can clarify it for him. 


    "Fight them"!  "I am ordered to fight"! "The caliph makes war; fights all other peoples"!  I will pile on the evidence: from Hedaya, Volume II, Book IX, Chapter 1.
  • The destruction of the sword  is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the  sacred writings which are generally received this effect.
  • War must be carried on against the Infidels, at all times, by some party of the Muslims (Page 140)
The anonymous liar says that offensive conquest is harram. Allah, Moe & the jurists say it is required. Whom do you believe? 

churches

    Dhimmis are not permitted to build or maintain churches, display crosses, ring bells or pray aloud in public.  See Reliance O11.5.

No Muslim country has followed shariah

    Oh? Since when are the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia & Iran not Muslim?  What is the primary source of law in the Constitutions of Afghanistan & Iraq?

    Anonymous, your comment was not only published, it has been blogged; refuted point by point with ample evidence from Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence.  May the Almighty Creator grant you a moment of insight and an hour of sanity so that you can free yourself from slavery to Satan.

Jesus 4 Shari'ah??

A British Muslim web site, whose creators and clients should have long since been expelled from Britain, http://www.islam4uk.com/ polluted the web with a blasphemous suggestion that Jesus Christ was a Muslim and would favor Shari'ah over secular 'democracy'. They want to debate Christians & Jews about Christ's mission one week before we celebrate the traditional anniversary of his birth. They advertise their debate proposal with two graphic images. Thanks and a tip of the hat to Logan's Warning for alerting me to the existence of this drek.

The three questions propounded in the second image are critical. I will take them on superficially.

  1. The message of Jesus was apolitical. His message was directed to his audience jointly and severally as God's creations, not as citizens of the state. He told them how to relate to each other and to God, not how to govern their nation. His kingdom is spiritual, not temporal; he came as a teacher, not a ruler.
  • 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.


  • 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. [John, KJV]
  1. I have seen no scriptural record of Jesus rebelling against the Romans or the Jewish hierarchy that cooperated with them. Driving the money changers from the Temple was his only recorded violent act; it was not against the hierarchy
  2. Islamic arrogance stands out like a wart on the tip of Moe's nose. The question begs the question of oppression. The people of Iraq were oppressed by the Hussein regime, which provoked a war. They suffer the consequences of silently allowing a tyrant to engage in malicious mischief. Afghanistan made the same mistake, by supporting al-Qaeda and refusing to hand them over after they attacked us. Palestine is oppressed by the an occupying force of Muslim Arabs who do not belong there. Jesus would stand with the genuine victims, not the aggressors who pretend to be victims.
Islam blasphemes Jesus, denying his paternity & divinity, assigning him the status of slave, denying his crucifixion, death & resurrection and co-opting him as a genocidal warlord. As-Saff 14 implies that Jesus led his disciples into battle against the Jews who rejected him.

One hadith stands apart from the rest. Pay careful attention to this description of the second coming. What will Jesus do?
  • Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310:
    Narrated AbuHurayrah:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
"He will fight the people for the cause of Islam." According to Islamic prophecy, Jesus will return as a warlord, like Moe. What is the meaning of "break the cross, kill swine":? The answer is in the next sentence: "Allah will perish all religions except Islam. According to Islamic propecy, Jesus, fighting the people, will kill the remaining Christians and Jews.

The wise guiys will claim that I am reading too much into a simple saying, that I am mis-interpreting it. But I have confirmation, which comes from Ibn Kathir's Tafsir of 7:167.
  • [...]In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world.[...]
So Jesus will impose and enforce Shari'ah. That includes amputation for theft and stoning for adultery. Lets check the scripture again.
  • 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
    [John, KJV]
Jesus was a Muslim? Did he pray at the prescribed times? How did he know what they were? How did he know the prescribed prayers? How did he know the prescribed ritual gestures? Did he perform hajj and its attendant rituals? How is it possible that Islam's second most important prophet never visited the Kaaba? If he did, why is it not recorded in the Gospels? Why did he fail to teach his disciples to fast during Ramadan and perform Hajj? How would he know the rituals of Islam more than 500 years before Muhammad invented the cult? What Muslim would study the Torah instead of the Qur'an? Does anyone know of a Muslim Rabbi?

The imposition is a blasphemous outrage and an insult to our intelligence. The Church of England should send a qualified theologian to debate the impostors and trim them down to size. I doubt that they will do that; I expect that they will pass up a great opportunity to expose Islam as a foolish imposture.

There Can Be No Resurrection Without a Crucifixion


Cross Posted from A Newt One with gracious permission from Sonlit Knight.

NOTE TO OUR READERS: CURRENT DAILY POSTS FOLLOW BELOW THIS SPECIAL GOOD FRIDAY PIECE. SCROLL DOWN FOR THE LATEST POSTS!

"Eloi, Eloi Lama Sabachtani" Those are the words my Lord cried out in anguish, from the Cross. "My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me?"
The words reverberated through time and space, for they were words cried out to God, from God. This is not contradiction, this is paradox. For in this solemn and sacred mystery is the very meaning of life.

The passion and death of Our Lord is the defining and central theme to all of the fallen age of man. So much so His words ring out in the Prophetic words of the Psalmist. It's Psalm 22- the one just before the one everybody knows.

Here is part of it....

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry by day, but thou dost not answer; and by night, but find no rest.


Yet thou art holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. In thee our fathers trusted; they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. To thee they cried, and were saved; in thee they trusted, and were not disappointed. But I am a worm, and no man; scorned by men, and despised by the people.


All who see me mock at me, they make mouths at me, they wag their heads;


"He committed his cause to the LORD; let him deliver him, let him rescue him, for he delights in him!" Yet thou art he who took me from the womb; thou didst keep me safe upon my mother's breasts.


Upon thee was I cast from my birth, and since my mother bore me thou hast been my God. Be not far from me, for trouble is near and there is none to help.

The Sorrowful Mysteries are 5 particular events drawn from the narrative of Christ's Passion, that make up part of a Catholic devotional known as the Rosary. In praying the Rosary's Sorrowful Mysteries, Catholics attempt to meditate on and delve into the depth of these sacred and sorrowful events and what they mean to believers.

I believe that many pious Christians have not truly contemplated the deeper purpose of Christ's suffering and death and as a consequence come to a distorted interpretation of life, suffering, death and salvation.

Many good and decent people believe that Christ died to give you salvation, like someone might give you a candy bar. He did not. Salvation is indeed a free gift; you cannot earn or merit. However, it is not a singular act but a process with which you must cooperate. Again, this is not contradiction, this is paradox. If you doubt that a profession of faith alone is insufficient for salvation you need only read the admonishing words of James (Chapter 2), wherein he says:

What does it profit, my brethren, if a man says he has faith but has not works? Can his faith save him? [15] If a brother or sister is ill-clad and in lack of daily food, [16] and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and filled," without giving them the things needed for the body, what does it profit? [17] So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.


[18] But some one will say, "You have faith and I have works." Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith. [19] You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe -- and shudder.


[20] Do you want to be shown, you shallow man, that faith apart from works is barren?


[21] Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar? [22] You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by works, [23] and the scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness"; and he was called the friend of God. [24] You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone.

This is very difficult to grasp but I admonish you to persist. For in the unraveling of this mystery is the very secret of the meaning of salvation and life. It is a very tough nut to crack, this apparent contradiction between salvation by faith and salvation by works. For as clearly as James appears to come down on one side, Paul appears to come down on the other...
Ephesians 2

[5] even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), [6] and raised us up with Him, and made us sit with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, [7] that in the coming ages He might show
the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. [8] For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God -- [9] not because of works, lest any man should boast.
Once again, paradox is at work. For though it was Moses' staff that turned the Nile red with blood, it was not Moses who did it. Though it was Trumpets of Joshua's band that brought down the walls of Jericho, it is not Joshua who did it. Though the Virgin Mary brought forth the I Am Himself, it was not by Mary's doing that this miracle was brought forth.

So what of these sorrowful mysteries I mentioned? In them is found the answer. For if salvation is of faith through works, how can anyone be saved? When the disciples asked this very question.....

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible,
but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26
Jesus excels at making the impossible possible.....even putting salvation within the reach of sinful men. For a human being cannot achieve salvation by human acts, only by Divine acts. How can a human being accomplish Divine acts??? He can only do so because He who was both human and Divine, sanctified the human act and made it Divine.

Jesus was not baptised because He needed to be. He was baptised to take a human act- being immersed in water- and attaching a Divine action to it. Now, through Baptism, we can receive sanctifying Grace. Before, you would only get wet.

Jesus did not pray the Our Father merely because it sounded good. By simply voicing it, it became the Word of God. All throughout the New Testament, we see evidence of purely human actions that now have Divine value.


Here are but a few....
Matthew 10:42
And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because
he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward."


Luke 24:50
When He had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, He lifted up his hands and blessed them.


Acts 8:17
Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.


Matthew 26-29
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is My body." 27 Then He took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is My blood of the [b] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in My Father's kingdom."
Time after time, what appear to be simple human acts performed by human beings have a supernatural component fused to them because these acts were sanctified and made holy by the God-Man.

The Bible tells us that He was like us in all things except sin. Why? Have you ever thought about this? Did God, the Omniscient One, need to experience life as a human being to understand it? Hardly.


Then why? Why did Jesus need to come to us, be baptised, work, learn, teach, pray, fast, minister, empathize, experience fear and rejection and grief and suffer and die a horrible death? Did He do all these things so that we would not have to?

Not so! The Bible definately does not teach that. In fact, it teaches the opposite!

For, while Jesus was baptised, learned, taught, prayed, fasted, ministered, empathized, experienced fear and rejection and grief and suffered and died, He admonished each and every one of us that we would-to greater or lessor degree- experience each of these things.

This is where the so-called "prosperity gospel" preachers get it so wrong. "Follow Jesus" they say, "and you will know only joy and peace".


Jesus promised something very different. Jesus promised that the price of following Him was a Cross that you would have to carry. Jesus promised that you would be hated and reviled by mankind and that you would have to live a life that shunned the pleasures of this world. In short, Jesus promised that suffering would come to those who believed and that only those who endured to the end would be saved.


Well....that doesn't sound like much fun! It certainly is difficult to reconcile with the idea of a God who came to earth to suffer and die, as a free gift of salvation. It almost sounds like a contradiction. It almost sounds like God is going back on His word. It almost sounds like God is cruel. Why would God desire the very followers He Redeemed at an incalculable price and who accepted Him, suffer needlessly at the hands of the very ones who rejected Him?


To understand, you must re-orient your thinking and understanding of who Jesus was and what He did for you. He did not suffer so that you would not have to suffer. For if He did some very special people to me were seriously short changed. Jesus again did not suffer for the purpose of eliminating suffering from your life.


Jesus suffered to sanctify suffering itself and make it holy so that even that which the devil intends for evil can be used for good. Once again, the sheer depth of God is explored within the mystery of paradox. For it is right and just and logical that we would attempt to avoid suffering
, yet suffering, if it must come, is not in vain. For even that which hurts us, can help us.

Is it God's will that we suffer? hardly. It's the devil's will. The passion of Christ and the five sacred mysteries that explore it teach us the very thing Satan uses to destroy you can be used by God to save you.

This is the answer, to that age-old question of why God sometimes allows (passive) horrible things to happen to people. This is the question that I have wrestled with every bit as much as you. For I have seen unimaginable evil in my life on both the public and private level and cried out those words......
"My God, My God! Why have you forsaken me!?"

The same words. Listen to me. The same words King David cried out. The same words the Savior cried out. For God in His unfathomable mercy experienced the perception of His own rejection and the sorrow of isolation even as He saw all and knew all.

The inexpressible mystery of paradox.

Jesus did not forsake you, little one, though it seems so painfully clear that He did. Where was He in your suffering? Right in the middle of it.

When you pleaded with God to protect you from the thing you were so fearful of, He was on His knees in the Garden of Gethsemane sweating blood and pleading that the cup be taken from Him.

While you were being taunted and ridiculed and made to feel small, insignificant and worthless, He was before the tribunal of Pilate being spit upon, kicked, mocked and crowned with thorns.

While you suffered horrible pain unjustly, He was there, being scourged and crucified.

As you have gone through life carrying a burden, He was carrying His cross.

Many believers don't want to talk of these things, preferring to concentrate only on the Resurrection.

Many of my Christian friends point out (and rightly so) the suffering and death is completely powerless without the Resurrection. Point conceded.

Do not forget, however, what magnifies the Light and power of the Resurrection is the sheer darkness from which it rose. The disciples had placed all their faith in a Savior only to watch him arrested for crimes He wasn't capable of committing, subjected to a gruesome, horrific torture and murder and laid in a tomb.

Everything they believed was destroyed, everything they hoped for was obliterated...or so they thought.

The power of the Resurrection is even the most horrible darkness can be followed by the Light of the Son. This life will eventually bring misery and death to each of us. For every possession you have will be lost and every relationship you have will be brought to an end. No level of power or money can buy you another second when the Angel of Death comes to call upon you.

This is just reality. Do not despair. Do not give up. For those who have accumulated great fortune in this world, age and death are only that much more painful a separation.

Do not assume the suffering that has been visited upon you means God doesn't love you.

Remember, you cannot have a Resurrection without the Crucifixion. Does this mean that you must be crucified? Heavens no!

It means that you must take up your cross (Matthew 10:38) and unite your sufferings with His (Colossians 1:24). How do you do so? Very simply-by saying and embracing those 4 difficult and powerful words: Thy will be done.

and remembering the sorrow of Friday is fleeting; the Joy of Sunday is everlasting.

Happy Easter!

HE IS RISEN! God Bless Johnny Hart and his FEARLESSNESS in Proclaiming his Faith!


Today's offering from Johnny Hart is as thought-provoking as all his Easter offerings. It's a welcome breath of fresh air for he is fearless in proclaiming his love of Jesus and what Jesus has done for the world. The fact he boldly prints it in a cartoon format allows both adults to ponder and think and children to learn about the Saviour. Too bad the true meanings he portrays fly over the heads of the MSM and the liberals--they could definitely learn something. Maybe that's what they're afraid of.

Enjoy and rejoice for JESUS is RISEN!

  • There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
  • To paraphrase Winston Churchill, I did not take the oath I have just taken with the intention of presiding over the dissolution of the world's strongest economy.
  • Today we did what we had to do. They counted on America to be passive. They counted wrong.
  • We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
  • We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child.
  • We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

  • Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.
  • You know, if I listened to Michael Dukakis long enough, I would be convinced we're in an economic downturn and people are homeless and going without food and medical attention and that we've got to do something about the unemployed.
