Mohammed – Deja Vu

posted in: Newsletter | 27

In the 1930’s Hitler and Nazism were rising in power in Germany. As the evil of their intentions became reality on the ground, nearly every leader in Europe completely denied the evil in front of their eyes. The drive to think only good thoughts about Hitler and appease him in every way saturated the speech and reports of political and religious leaders, the universities and the press. Not even the invasion of bordering states could disprove the “Hitler is a reasonable man” point of view held by the establishment. Appeasement would make him like them and be reasonable. Peace at all costs was the moral motto.

Since they would not strike while Hitler was weak, the Europeans had to deal with the Nazis when they came to full fighting strength, and it took massive costs of treasure and blood to deal with the problem. The establishment’s peace by appeasement brought great evil.

The parallels between the establishment’s denial about the Nazis then and their leadership about Islam today are frightening. We see that denial of facts in the face of fear is a human trait.

All of these quotes come from William Manchester’s biography William Spencer Churchill Alone.

Political leaders
British leaders would not even believe the intelligence gathered by their own members:

the British government took the remarkable position that the detailed reports from two of its most eminent ambassadors, describing conditions in the Third Reich, were based on misunderstandings, distortions, and unconfirmed rumors.
… [the prime minister] assured Germany’s ambassador to Britain, Leopold von Hosch, that he knew there were no atrocities, no beatings, no desecration of synagogues–that everything England’s own envoys had reported was, in short, a lie.
… [the prime minister’s] silence, his refusal to see, hear, and speak no evil of the Nazi chancellor was characteristic of the response among England’s ruling classes.( Pg 103 )

Hitler was to never be offended:

The real problem was that the most powerful and influential men in Britain were determined not to offend Hitler.( pg 125)

The establishment made love and peace the religion of the state:

Appeasement became evangelical; indeed, for some the line between foreign policy and religion became blurred. [Leadership] denounced Vansittart’s hostility toward the Nazis; Baldwin commented: “I’ve always said you [Vansittart] were a Christian.” “Rage”, wrote Margot Asquith, the widow of the prime minister, “should be met with Christian love. There is only one way of preserving Peace in the world, and getting rid of your enemy, and that is to come to some sort of agreement with him–and the viler he is, the more you must fight him with the opposite weapons than his.” She concluded: “The greatest enemy of mankind today is Hate.” (Pg 101)

The Folly of Truth
Books and facts were never allowed to penetrate the shield of peace at all costs:

Over the holidays he [Prime Minister Chamberlain] read Stephen Roberts’s The House That Hitler Built, a powerful indictment of National Socialism by an eminent Australian scholar, but he wrote his sister Ida: “If I accepted the author’s conclusions I should despair, but I don’t and won’t. pg. 243

What leader of today has read the Koran or the Sunna? Not one leader (except Churchill) in the establishment ever read Mein Kampf:

the appeasers seemed wholly unaware of Hitler’s great design, blueprinted in Mein Kampf and now emerging as an alarming reality. Pg. 242

The Media
The press and the BBC radio censored all bad news about the Nazis. They also never connected any dots. Any event that did sneak through the reporting was never part of a pattern of behavior:

Ebbutt’s [British reporter] editors read his stories; they knew what was happening in the Third Reich, though their readers often did not; his dispatches were frequently rewritten or suppressed by Dawson [Times editor], who, after five years of jumping through Hitler’s hoops, merely wondered at the man’s ingratitude. He wrote H. G. Daniels, his Geneva correspondent: “I do my utmost, night after night, to keep out of the paper anything that might hurt their [Nazi] susceptibilities. I can really think of nothing that has been printed now for many months past to which they could possibly take exception as unfair comment.” Pg 144

The establishment was to not to ever make evil specific to the Nazis:

[Leadership told] Tory MPs that if they felt they must deplore totalitarianism and aggression, they must not name names. It was important, he said, to avoid “the danger of referring directly to Germany at a time when we are trying to get on terms with a country. Fleet Street [the British press] cheered. So did Britain. These were men of peace. Pg. 238

The press had a policy of not reporting evil about the Nazis:

Dispossessed by the Nazis, they [Jews] wandered the roads of eastern Europe. Photographs of their ordeal were profoundly moving, but Dawson [editor of London Times] refused to run any of them in The Times; he couldn’t help the victims, he explained to his staff, and if they were published Hitler would be offended. Pg. 399.

Religious leaders
The persecution of the Church in Germany did not bother the virtuous Establishment religious leaders and the press. They would cover it up and make excuses:

There was “no persecution of religion in Germany,” said Bishop Headlam, merely “persecution of political action.” Geoffrey Dawson [newspaper editor] published the bishop’s sermons in full while consigning dispatches from his own Berlin correspondent, describing the imprisonment of German clergymen, to the wastebasket. Pg. 311

Notice any parallels? Just exchange Hitler with Mohammed, Mein Kampf with Koran, and on and on. History repeats itself. Our current ignorant and fearful political, religious, media and university leaders have a historical pedigree.

    A follow up on the “Ban Islam” petition activity.
    Which you were kind enough to mention in a post on oct. 20, 2011.
    The original site was either paid or bought by Islamic funds. Thousands of names would dissapeared, and eventually it was taken off of the petition site. I’ve printed about 6000 signatures to send to the World Courts.
    Is this site able to continue the signature gathering, for this to eventually get to the World Court?
    I’m Internationally known for this activity, by Muslims and others. My phone nu. is 250 995-1760

    Steffen, you clearly did not finish reading the article and missed Bill’s punch line at the end, where he states his assumptions supporting his appeasement thesis: “Notice any parallels? Just exchange Hitler with Mohammed, Mein Kampf with Koran, and on and on. History repeats itself.” You also missed the entire thesis itself. It was not simply about “denials” of truth because they were “unrecognized and unwanted”, but rather deliberate denials of “truth” because of appeasement (of those who are threatening or FORCING the denial of truth). In order to have any hope of sounding intelligent, you have to get the assumptions and thesis correct first.

    Chameleon,
    you write it yourself: “parallels”, history repeating itself confronting a danger that many think too confrontational and best appeased. It should be obvious that Mr Warner would not bother writing his piece if he saw no parallels: the Idea and it’s prophet, a danger both. With as much right he could have employed Bolschevism and Lenin. But parallels never were more than a resemblance, similarities, comparisons. Rarely complete equality.

    A point: I did not write that the denials of truth were unrecognized and unwanted. I wrote that the truth was unrecognized and unwanted, and my intention was accordingly that the truth was to be understood as denied. I’m sorry if I did not make this clear, and I’ll overlook the latter part of your reply.

    Chameleon, it is YOUR assumption of the entire article that Mohammad=Hitler and Islam=Nazism.

    I’ll only copy a central part of the article: “The parallels between the establishment’s denial about the Nazis then and their leadership about Islam today are frightening. We see that denial of facts in the face of fear is a human trait. ” This is what the article is saying, and not much more. The article is about historical attitudes towards an unrecognized and unwanted truth, and the lessons to be learnt from this.

    You may of course assume as much as you like, but still I think that a less hostile and aggressive manner would probably invite more responses to your assumptions.

    Amjad Mahmod,

    Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy presents his claims and assertions based on his own premises. They are not arguments when they are valid to him only.
    And thus they cannot be answered meaningfully.

    Dr. Mohsen makes us pay attention to the fact that the correct translation of “kafir” is not “infidel”.
    I didn’t immediately see him explaining to us that the literate translation is “coverer” or “hider” of truth. This would mean little to the average reader, and therefore it has become the usual practice to translate it as someone who does not believe. In the Arabic it appears to be implicit that the unbeliever does so out of stubbornness and malice, and perhaps the translation is less of an invective than the original. In fact, I often see the term “kafir” used as an invective on Islamic sites. Some Muslims have also admitted this use.

    Chameleon,

    I’m still waiting to hear you defend the Muslims who committed the atrocities in Beslan, Russia. Just to refresh you confused cult mind, I have extended you the courtesy of pasting it below for your review.

    ——————————————————–
    Chameleon,

    I sent you this posting earlier about the “Beslan rapes and forced urine drinking
    five years ago Muslim extremists invaded a school in Beslan, Russia. These Muslim terrorists held over a thousand people, most of them children, hostage. For three days these Muslim terrorists killed and tortured countless victims. The ways in which they were treated I will abbreviate . Children were shot for crying. Teachers and parents were shot for trying to calm the hostages. Young girls were gang raped. Young girls were raped with gun barrels and other objects. Many young girls did not survive these rapes. Children were forced to drink their own urine before being executed. The list of inhuman acts committed by these Muslim animals is as nothing I have ever heard before.”

    In response you stated to me earlier that, “As for the anecdotes of atrocities, all that you are demonstrating with these is how weak these societies are, and how little Islam is holding the social fabric together there.”

    Let’s focus directly on this particular Beslan “anecdote” for a minute, you know, the one that you were afraid to comment on previously. Here is you big chance to dazzle me with your ability to admit nothing, deny everything, make counter-accusations, play the victim, and obfuscate the truth… and don’t forget to give me a big Allahu akbar!!!! Allahu akbar!!! just so that I know you really mean it.

    Here we go Muslim…are you saying that Muslims did not commit these atrocities against the Russian people? Educate all of us Muslim!!”
    Armed Infidel ” November 1, 2011 @ 2:17 AM
    ——————————————————–
    We are all waiting for you to enlighten us on what really happened in Beslan, Russia and who it was that committed these heinous acts of terrorism. We are waiting Muslim…for you to enlighten us with your pseudo-intellectual prowess.”

    You can try to rewrite history. However, Hitler did it all in the name of Christianity – even his terrorist justification for killing the Jews. Since you clearly have trouble reading my quotes, here is a key one again:

    “How terrific was His fight against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross.”

    In Hitler’s private “Table Talks”, he wasn’t showing his antipathy against Christianity as a whole, but rather against the “moderate” mainstream Christianity that he absolutely hated, in the same way that Ossama bin Laden constantly railed against “moderate” mainstream Muslims who rejected his message of hate. Hitler privately persecuted many in the Church not because he was against Christians, but because he was against those who did not agree with his violent vision of Christianity. He did this persecution in private because that would be the only way to maintain his public pro-Christian position. Hitler was clearly passionate in his invocation of Christianity to justify his actions. He wanted to bring back the “true” Christianity that “glorifies heroism.” He wanted to return to the example of Jesus, who “was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.” He wanted to change Christianity from what it “was” to what he envisioned it could be. He had no intention of destroying Christianity or to persecute it for the sake of satisfying some irrational hatred. Such actions would have done nothing to achieve his objective of unifying the Aryan race against his common “enemies”. But changing the core message of Christianity to accommodate hatred and violence most certainly would. Religion was a tool of power for Hitler, just like it has been for Al Qaeda and many other hate groups throughout history.

    Richard, thank you very much for validating my point against Bill that neither Muhammad nor Islam is being appeased. As you state so clearly, the only possible argument that can be made is that terrorists might be appeased in some way by the media.

    By the way, I am still waiting on the support for the crucial assumptions of the entire article: Mohammad=Hitler and Islam=Nazism. Can anyone sound intelligent in explaining this, please? Anyone? Anyone at all?

    This is the first time I have read Mohammed – Déjà Vu.

    So true the appeasement. The same today for Islam as it was for Hitler in his day.

    Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy. of course, has come out with his usual drivel:

    Dr. El-Guindy: “The Koran says:… blah blah…
    “The Hadiths say: .. blah blah…”

    “because of which, killing your fellow human beings is not evil but rather evil is believing anything else than the Islamic drivel and killing those who refuse to believe that drivel and all the hate and lies that it teaches.

    Why, Dr. El-Guindy, should we bother about the authority of a book that also says the world is flat, the sun goes around the Earth and sets in a muddy spring at night, that the semen comes from between the ribs and the backbone, that asexual life does not exist… etc etc…?

    Or about hadiths that say that monkeys stone each other for adultery, that quotes Muhammad as saying:

    “People are just like camels, out of one hundred, one can hardly find a single camel suitable to ride” and

    “He who eats seven ‘Ajwa dates every morning, will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats them.”, and

    “He who played chess is like one who dyed his hand with the flesh and blood of swine” and

    “If you want to put on your shoes, put on the right shoe first; and if you want to take them off, take the left one first. Let the right shoe be the first to be put on and the last to be taken off” and

    “If somebody keeps a horse in Allah’s Cause motivated by his faith in Allah and his belief in His Promise, then he will be rewarded on the Day of Resurrection for what the horse has eaten or drunk and for its dung and urine.” and

    “If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease.” and

    “When you eat, do not wipe your hands till you have licked it, or had it licked by somebody else.” and

    “The Prophet forbade the wearing of a gold ring.” and

    “The effect of an evil eye is a fact.” and

    “Whoever has seen me in a dream, then no doubt, he has seen me, for Satan cannot imitate my shape.” lol and

    “Yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: ‘Ha’, Satan will laugh at him.” and

    “If anyone of you goes to an open space for answering the call of nature he should neither face nor turn his back towards the Qibla; he should either face the east or the west.” lol.. lol and lol

    etc etc…?

    Steffen Larsen has probably hit the nail upon the head about Dr. El-Guindy and Dr. El-Guindy has probably hit his head upon the nail.

    I’ll answer Chameleon’s drivel.

    “how is Muhammad being appeased by “the establishment” of today like Hitler was during WWII when Mohammad has been dead for well over a millennium?”

    Answer – You cannot say anything against Muhammad for fear of violence by Muslims. This violence has been ordained and sanctioned by Islam and hence western governments and “free” press are self-censoring anything that seems like criticism of Muhammad. You cannot speak the truth about Muhammad for fear of violent reaction.

    Hitler was not a Christian, not at least by the time he rose to power. All the speeches and sayings that he gave which were pro-Christianity were political. In his private sayings he was firmly anti-Christianity. The Hitler youth marching song was “We follow not Christ, but Horst Wessel,
    Away with incense and Holy Water,
    The Church can go hang for all we care,
    The Swastika brings salvation on Earth.”

    In any case, not only was his holocaust not inspired by Christianity but he NEVER CLAIMED IT WAS.

    Contrast this with the Muslim murderers of today. Not only are their murders and attempted murders inspired by Islam and the teachings of Muhammad but THEY SAY THEY ARE!

    Muhammad was nothing but a cult leader and Islam is nothing but a huge runaway cult.

    You have said that Muhammad cannot be a cult leader because he is dead. It is not necessary for a cult leader to be alive to be venerated. Neo-Nazis venerate Hitler though he is dead.

    A cult is a group or sect bound together by veneration of the such a figure, which is exactly what Islam is.

    Armed infidel thinks that he has a proof against Islam by raising the issue of apostasy and mut’a marriage. Again, Islam is a perfect religion and Muslims have nothing to hide. We don’t make compromises in our religion in order to satisfy others, we rather obey and follow the perfect and divine commands of Allah submissively.

    1- Apostasy in Islam

    The apostate worships Allah in doubt, if good befalls him he is gratified, but If a trial befalls him he reverts to disbelief after embracing Islam.

    If the apostate converts to contemporary Christianity for instance, he will be calling besides Allah, Jesus, thus associating with Allah other deities, a matter considered in the sight of Allah as clear blasphemy. He is going to believe in all the odd dogmas which the Christians invented in their religion which Islam rejected completely i.e. Jesus is God or the son of God, Mary is the mother of God, original sin, Eve is guilty because she tempted Adam to eat from the forbidden tree, crucifixion of Jesus which never happened, vicarious atonement and rituals Jesus didn’t mention in his teachings.

    The apostate before converting to another religion knew perfectly well that the Koran is one unified Book that contained all the knowledge of the preceding divine Books. He also knew that with the advent of Muhammad, the light and guidance which he brought for all mankind superseded the earlier Laws. He knew that Allah has uplifted the Koran over all other divine Books and made it a witness over them. Yet he moved to several corrupted Books containing only traces of what Jesus truly said, while the rest was the fables and the imagination of the humans who wrote them.

    From a pious life the apostate will be moving to a distorted life characterized by open sex out of wedlock, adultery and fornication, drinking wine, eating pork, using usury in transaction, gambling, and under the motto of freedom and liberty he will be accepting distorted behaviors prevailing in the western society such as drugs, and groups of lesbians, homosexuals, prostitutes claiming their legal rights!

    From an Islamic life in which the believers believe in the One God, Allah, and worshipping Him alone, the apostate will be moving to worshipping a man nailed to the cross! The apostate will be attending churches preaching what they think a religion while singing and dancing with jazz music in the background!

    In short the apostate will be moving from piety to debauchery, from purity to impurity, from belief in Allah’s oneness to polytheism by believing in Jesus as god or son of God. He in fact will be losing this world and the Hereafter.

    The Koran says:

    And among men there is such a one as serves Allah upon the very edge – if good befalls him he is at rest in it, but if a trials befall him he turns completely over; he loses this world and the world to come; that is indeed the manifest loss (Al-Hajj, 11).

    There is no capital punishment (death penalty) in the Koran for apostates. However, those who denied Allah and renounced faith and entered the gates of death captivated in disbelief have come within the measure of Allah’s wrath. Such like persons have earned the curse of Allah and of the angels and of all mankind. Such curse shall follow them like their shadow and beset them at all sides until the Day they are dragged in chains into Hell, confined with shackles and put to the torment which shall not abate nor shall their punishment be put in respite.

    As we read in the Koran:
    But those who disbelieve, and die disbelieving – upon them shall rest the curse of Allah and the angels and of men altogether, therein dwelling forever; the chastisement shall not be lightened for them, no respite shall be given them (Al-Baqarah 161, 162).

    How shall Allah guide a people who intentionally deny Him after they have recognized Him and bore witness to the truth of His Apostle’s mission, and after they have received the signs and accepted them, they later on rejected the clear revelations! Allah guides not the polytheists and wrongdoers. Such like persons have incurred the curse of Allah and the angels and all mankind. They will abide in Hell. Neither will their torment be lightened, nor will it be delayed or postponed for a while.

    Allah says in the Koran:

    How Allah shall guide a people who have disbelieved after they believed, and bore witness that the Messenger is true, and the clear signs came to them?
    Those their recompense is that they shall rest on them the curse of Allah and of the angels and of men, altogether, therein dwelling forever; the chastisement shall not be lightened, for them, no respite shall be given them (Al-Imran, 86-88).

    Those who deny Allah after they have recognized Him and be so bold as to display their infidelity, never shall their penitence be accepted, and they are those who are astray. Those who deny Allah and death claims them vested with the ugly vesture of disbelief, shall have committed an unforgivable sin. The offer of as much gold as the earth can treasure shall not be accepted from any of them in expiation for his guilt. Such persons must expect endless suffering and shall find no one to afford them help.

    The Koran says:

    Surely those who disbelieve after they have believed and then increase in unbelief – their repentance shall not be accepted; those are the ones who stray.
    Surely those who disbelieve, and die disbelieving, there shall not be accepted from any one of them the whole earth full of gold, if he would ransom himself thereby; for them awaits a painful chastisement, and they shall have no helpers (Al-Imran, 90, 91).

    Based on the above, Muslim jurists issued the verdict that apostates are walking dead. The penalty is death. However, this jurist’s verdict is human interpretation and not divine. In other words it could be considered or left behind. The real punishment for apostates in the present life is contempt, disdain, avoidance and to be treated as outcasts. And in the Hereafter, Hell-Fire awaits them and ascertains them as her own.

    2- Mut’a marriage in Islam

    Armed infidel, as he always do, wants to find a slip in Islam. Now, the ignorant infidel challenges me to explain to him certain points he thinks they are false cracks in Islam. Now he raises the issue of mut’a marriage!

    Explaining Islam to hate mongers like him and others is useless because they will never revert to their senses – if they have any – and be convinced. However, there are always other non-Muslims who want to know the truth. To them I write, and to them and to myself I ask forgiveness from my Lord, the Lord of the universe.

    Mut’a Marriage in Islam

    Mut’a marriage is prohibited in Islam. It was first allowed due to certain circumstances, but after they ended, it was prohibited.

    The Islamic temporary marriage was allowed for simply preventing Muslim men from committing adultery and fornication with other women when they used to travel for months at distances of 100s and even 1000s of miles away from home to fight the enemy in battle fields. Mut’a orTemporary marriage was allowed for this purpose only.
    Once the Prophet established the Islamic State in Makkah, he forbade this kind of marriage completely.

    Mut’a Marriage in Islam is a contract between a man and a woman, much in the same way the long-term conventional marriage is. The same vows are exchanged by the partners or their authorized representatives in both cases, including stating the dowry. If a fixed time is not specified (one year, two rears, etc”) then the marriage reverts to a long-term marriage and separation can only happen by death or by divorce. In this case, all the rules of the regular marriage apply.

    If a period is specified, then after the expiration date, they must either extend it to another specified time or they will automatically separate without divorce, and the woman must count the ‘Iddah’ (three months) before which she cannot marry any one else.

    In Islam iddah (period of waiting) is the period a woman must observe after the death of her spouse or after a divorce, during which she may not marry another man. The period, three months after a divorce and four months and ten days after the death of a spouse, is calculated on the number of menses that a woman has. Iddah was intended to ensure that the male parent of any offspring produced after the cessation of a nikah (marriage) would be known.

    Qur’an prohibits widows to engage themselves for four lunar months and ten days after the death of their husbands. Islamic scholars consider this directive to be a balance between mourning of husband’s death and protecting the widow from criticism that she might be subjected to from re-marrying too quickly after her husband’s death. This is also to ascertain whether a woman is pregnant or not, since four and a half months is half the length of a normal pregnancy.

    The scholars who authorize mut’a marriage base their opinion on the Koranic verse 4: 24.

    1- Ahadith permitting Mut’a marriage

    Bukhari, Vol. 6, Book 60. No. 139:

    Narrated Abdullah: “We used to participate in the holy wars carried out by the Prophet and we had no women (wives) with us. So we said (to the Prophet), ‘Shall we castrate ourselves?’ But the prophet forbade us to do that and thenceforth he allowed us to marry a woman (temporarily) by giving her even a garment, and then he recited: “O you who believe! Do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you.”

    Muslim, Book 008, No. 3243:

    Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: “We were on an expedition with Allah’s Messenger and we had no women with us. We said: Should we not have ourselves castrated? He (the Prophet) forbade us to do so, he then granted us permission that we should contract temporary marriage for a stipulated period giving her a garment, and Abdullah then recited this verse: ‘Those who believe do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you, and do not transgress. Allah does not like transgressors” (Koran, v. 87).

    Muslim, Book 008, No. 3246:

    Jabir ibn Abdullah and Salama ibn Al-Akwa’ said: “There came to us the proclaimer of Allah’s Messenger and said: ‘Allah’s Messenger has granted you permission to benefit yourselves, i.e., to contract temporary marriage with women.

    Ibn Uraij reported: Jibir ibn Abdullah came to perform Umra and we came to his abode, and the people asked him about different things, and then they made a mention of temporary marriage, whereupon he said: “Yes, we had been benefitting ourselves by this temporary marriage during the lifetime of the holy Prophet and during the time of Abu Bakr and Umar.”

    2- Ahadith proving that mut’a marriage was prohibited by the Prophet

    Muslim, Book 007, No. 2817:

    Abu Dhar said that Mut’a marriage was a special concession for the companions of Muhammad.

    Muslim, Book 007, No. 2819

    Abu Dhar said: Two are the Mut’as which were not permissible but only for us; temporary marriage with women and Tamattu’ in Hajj.

    3- Ahadith proving that the Prophet prohibited mut’a marriage for everyone.

    Bukahari, Vol. 5, Book 59, No. 527

    Narrated Ali ibn Abi Taleb: “On the day of Khaibar, Allah’s Apostle forbade the Mut’a marriage and the eating of donkey meat.”

    Abu Dawood, Book 11, No. 2068

    Narrated Saburah ibn Ma’bad al-Juhani: “The Apostle of Allah prohibited temporary marriage with women.”

    Muslim, Book 008, No. 3251

    Iyas b. Salama reported on the authority of his father that Allah’s Messenger gave sanction for contracting temporary marriage for three nights in the year of Autas and then forbade it.

    Muslim, Book 008, No. 3253

    Rabi’ b. Sabra reported that his father went on an expedition with Allah’s Messenger during the victory of Makkah, and we stayed there for fifteen days, and Allah’s Messenger permitted us to contract temporary marriage with women. So I and another person of my tribe went out, and I was more handsome than he, whereas he was almost ugly. Each one of us had a cloak. My cloak was worn out, whereas the cloak of my cousin was quite new. As we reached the lower or the upper side of Makkah, we came across a young woman like a young smart long-she-camel. We said: “Is it possible that one of us may contract temporary marriage with you?” She said: “What will you give me as a dower?” Each one of us spread his cloak. She began to cast a glance on both the persons. My companion also looked at her when she was casting a glance at her side and he said: “This cloak of his is worn out, whereas my cloak is quite new.”
    She, however, said twice or thrice: “There is no harm in (accepting) the cloak (the old one). So I contracted temporary marriage with her, and I did not come out (of this) until Allah’s Messenger declared it forbidden.

    Muslim, Book 008, No. 3262

    Sabra al- Juhanni reported on the authority of his father that Allah’s Messenger prohibited the contracting of temporary marriage and said, “Behold, it is forbidden from this very day of yours to the Day of Resurrection, and he who has given something (as a dower) should not take it back.”

    4- Omar the second Caliph prohibited mut’a marriage

    Muslim, Book 007, No. 2874

    Abd Nadra reported: while I was in the company of Jibir, a person came and said: ‘There is difference in opinion between Ibn Abbas and Ibn Zubair about two mut’as (mut’a of hajj and temporary marriage with women) whereupon Jibir said: “We have been doing this during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger, and then Omar forbade us to do so, and we never resorted to them.”

    It is reported in Sunni commentary that Omar while on the pulpit said: “O folk! Three were allowed during the time of the Messenger of Allah, and I forbid them, and made them haram (unlawful), and punish on them. They were “mut’a of women, mut’a of hajj (pilgrimage), and saying ‘hayya Ala Khair al-Amal.” (Hasten for the best deed), a sentence which was said in the call for prayer at the time of the Prophet. Omar replaced it by the sentence: ‘prayer is better than sleep’.

    Omar was one of the best and closest companions of the prophet. He wouldn’t dare forbidding Mut’a marriage if he wasn’t sure that the prophet prohibited it.

    It is important to denote that the Prophet used to listen to the counsel of his close companions like Abu Bakr and Omar. In several instances the Koranic verses came to confirm Omar’s view.

    The Prophet doesn’t speak out of a whim or impulse, but from a direct inspiration from Allah:

    By the Star when it plunges, your comrade (Muhammad) is not astray; neither errs, nor speaks he out of caprice. This is naught but a revelation revealed, taught him by one (angel Gabriel) terrible in power (Al-Najm 1-5).

    Allah in the Koran did command the Muslims to follow the prophet’s commands. It is not fitting for a believer, men or women, when a matter had been decided by Allah and His messenger to have any option about their decision. Muslims must accept it loyally, and do the best they can do to carry it out.

    Allah says in the Koran:

    It is not for any believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter, to have a choice in the affair. Whosoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has gone astray into a manifest error (Al-Ahzab, 36).

    O believers obey Allah, and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. If you should quarrel on anything refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day; that is better, and fairer in the issue (Al-Nisa, 59).

    Conclusion

    The Mut’a marriage was first permitted by the Prophet for his companions engaged in battles with the enemy. When the need for this kind of temporary marriage ended, the Prophet prohibited it.

    Unfortunately, however, some Muslims still insist that mut’a marriage has not been prohibited by the Prophet and ignore his rule regarding this issue. They misuse the koranic verse (4: 24) in order to enjoy other women besides their wives when they are in travel or expedition. Moreover, some poor families permit such kind of marriage and marry their daughters to rich old people for a time appointed. This unlawful behavior has nothing to do with Islam.

    Accountability on the Day of Judgment will also be according to man’s intention, whether good or bad.

    It is also silly and unscientific to judge the religion of Islam according to the distorted behavior of its adherents. If we do that, we will find that contemporary Christianity is the bloodiest religion that has ever emerged in the modern time (inquisition in Spain and Europe, crusade, Hitler and Napoleon wars, the killing of Muslims in Bosnia, Harsak, Iraq, Afghanistan, the killing of the Japanese in Nagazaki and Hiroshima etc”).

    Likewise, the monotheistic religion of Jesus cannot be judged by the distortion we see now by considering Jesus god or the son of God, or by the sexual abuse we see nowadays in the Catholic churches, or dancing and singing in the churches on jazz music!

    The Nazii story was repeat of Islamic expansionism of
    7th and 8th century. The Romans, Persians and Indians didn’t take the Islamic threat seriously. Arab traders first presented sugar coated version of Islam, followed by murderous Islamic armies. The whole world is still suffering from fallout of that complacency. Even now politically correct, Psuedo secular politicians, journalists and activists are trying to dilute the grave situation. It is a must that the whole Kuffar world is informed and made aware of this real threat.

    What kind of polemic drivel is this? First of all, your entire appeasement thesis is based on the assumption that Mohammad=Hitler and Islam=Nazism, give or take a few irrelevant details, I’m sure. Assumptions are supposed to go at the beginning, not the end, and have to be supported, or at the very least be supportable.

    For example, how is Muhammad being appeased by “the establishment” of today like Hitler was during WWII when Mohammad has been dead for well over a millennium? How is there any parallel whatsoever between Islam and Nazism other than a very general “both are evil” assertion, which could be applied just as easily to corporate power or other forces being appeased as it could to Islam? How is it even possible that Islam as a personified entity could be “appeased” when there is absolutely no central Islamic authority in the world today, unlike Nazism? Finally, how does the weak decentralized power of Muslims today compare in any way to the worldwide dominant power of Nazism concentrated entirely in the single person of Hitler? The article references superficial snippets about Hitler and Nazism and then simply relies 100% on the reader’s prejudice to fill in all the blanks regarding the imaginative facts and arguments to support the stated assumptions at the very end. Unfortunately, since I don’t suffer from the requisite brainwashing that seems to be the norm on this site, the blanks are still just blanks. This article is nothing but third rate propaganda as a result, relying entirely on imaginative parallels stoked by prejudice.

    How about considering not just unsupported assumed parallels, like between Hitler and Islam, but documented historical connections, like between Hitler and Christianity? And how about a more supportable thesis as well? Here’s one to consider: Hitler was actually a terrorist acting entirely in the name of Christianity, to restore Christianity’s “inexorable fanaticism in preaching and fighting” and to recognize Jesus as being “greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.” Here are a few facts — quotes directly from Hitler — to consider in your analysis (from http://www.odinsvolk.ca/ChristianNazis.htm):

    “I am now, as before, a Catholic and will always remain so.” Adolf Hitler, 1941

    “The National (Nazi) Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirt of unity and co-operation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.” Adolf Hitler’s proclaimation of “My New Order” to the German nation at Berlin, Feb. 1, 1933

    “The greatness of Christianity did not lie in attempted negotiations for compromise with any similar philosophical opinions in the ancient world, but in its inexorable fanaticism in preaching and fighting for its own doctrine.” Adolf Hitler, “Mein Kampf” Vol. 1 Chapter 12

    “This human world of ours would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious belief.” Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, pg. 152

    Adolf Hitler also said [according to the web site above]:

    “My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter.

    “In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was his fight against the Jewish poison. Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross.”

    “As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice” And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly, it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people. And when I look on my people I see them work and work and toil and labor, and at the end of the week they have only for their wages wretchedness and misery.”

    “When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people are plundered and exploited”

    “Today Christians stand at the head of Germany I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit, We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past years.” Adolf Hitler

    Good luck in trying to sound intelligent in your response. You’re going to need it.

    This El-Guindy is a bit tiresome, I’m sorry to say …overly long rambling speeches that only the believer can enjoy, the insistence that his superstition is the correct one, all sorts of claims and assertions and declarations and citations heaped upon one another. And everything only saying that islam is correct because Muhammad says so.
    I do feel sorry for him, too. He seems an educated man caught up in this irrational and supernatural mess. Buf IF he indeed is the one we see here

    El-Guindy “The Ignorant”

    Tell me about Islamic Muslim Mu’ta “marriages” as sanctioned by Allah (shit be upon him) in the Koran chapter 4 verse 24; adultery condoned by the Koran for Muslim men with kafir women in short-term “marriages.” Temporary “marriages” for sex, then a quick divorce.

    Bill Warner

    I read your article Bill, and also the words of your hypocrite applauders. Your ignorance with the Arabic language took you to the extent of thinking that “Kafir” means non-Muslim! Based on this ignorance you founded your site political islam. you misguided your readers and incited their grudge against Muslims.

    Now another sort of ignorance appears. you compare the Koran with Mein kamph? you know what the koran is?

    The Koran is a book of law and prayer, a book of wisdom and invocation, a book of divine commands to mankind. It is the Holy Book of wisdom containing all the principles necessary for man’s happiness both in this world and the next.

    The Koran is the central sacred reality of Islam. As the direct word of Allah and the embodiment of Allah’s will, the Koran is considered as the guide par excellence for the life of Muslims. It is the source of all Islamic doctrines and ethics. Both the intellectual aspects of Islam and Islamic Law have their source in the Koran.

    The Koran has not been expressed using any human’s words. Its wording is letter for letter fixed by no one but Allah.

    Prophet Muhammad was the final Messenger of Allah to humanity, and therefore the Koran is the last Message which Allah has sent to mankind. The Koran is the culmination of all the previous scriptures revealed by Allah.

    Muhammad was sent to all mankind and not just to the Arabs. The Koran was revealed for all people, including Jews and Christians. The Koran is a gift of mercy from Allah to all people. It is not meant for one class or race; it is addressed to all the worlds.

    After all this, you compare the Koran with Mein Kamf! This silly approach of yours is not even scientific, but rather imbicility and halucination coming from a man who is not in full possession of his faculties.

    Following suit, why don’t you compare the corrupted Gospels with Harry Poter, or the Ring? You will find there a lot of fiction that would serve your halucination.

    now let’s talk sense. You know of course that with the advent of Muhammad, the light and guidance which he brought to all mankind from Allah superseded the earlier Laws.

    Allah says in this regard:

    And We have sent down to thee the Book with the truth, confirming the Book (Srolls of Abraham, psalms of david,Torah of Moses and Gospel of Jesus) that was before it, and trustworthy in highness and a witness over it (old Scriptures) (Al-maidah, 48).

    It would be more feasible then if you make a comparison between the Koran, the one unified Book that stood the test of time, and the corrupted Gospels you already have. Assuredly, it would be a good study if you use the koran as a reference to purify the adulterated gospels from the inventions the priests tarnished the Gospel with over time.

    Since your scientific capability regarding comparison between two entities is rather poor, I hereby propose the scientific concept by which you base your study on:

    After the corruption of the older revelations, the koran comes to confirm the true and original Message of all prophets (Islamic monotheism), and to guard it, or act as a check to its interpretation. the koran safeguards the original Books for it has preserved within it the teachings of al the former Books. It watches over these books in the sense that it will not let their true teachings to be lost. it supports and upholds these Books in the sense that it corroborates the Word of Allah which has remained intact in them. It stands as a witness because it bears testimony to the Word of Allah contained in these books. It testifies the truth that is in the old corrupted Books, and falsifies the falsehood that is added to them. What is confirmed by the Koran is the Word of Allah and what is against it is that of the people.

    How do you like this scheme of work poor Bill. This is the way I like it to be. This is the way a scientific approach must be.

    Grasp the opportunity and purify your corrupted books with reference to the Koran. Can you do that poor guy, or you will persist in writing articles that would make Satan take you and your hypocrite applauders by the nose to Hell Fire?

    The Mission of Muhammad to the Christians

    The Christian hate mongers occupy themselves by slandering the Prophet of Islam, belying the Koran and claiming that Muslims worship a god other than theirs. Some of them go to the extent of claiming that we worship a moon god or even a monkey God. Others claim that we are terrorists and want to dominate the world!

    Muslims worship Allah, the only God of the universe. The One who created the heavens and the earth. The One who sent all Prophets beginning with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, until Jesus, till Muhammad. Muslims worship the One God who descended upon Abraham the scrolls, and upon David the Psalms, and upon Moses the Torah, and upon Jesus the Gospel, and upon Muhammad the Koran. Do the Christian hate mongers worship another god than Allah? If they do, then they are in a real problem.

    Islam is not a religion restricted to a group of people or sect as was the case with all previous Prophets before Muhammad. Islam is a universal religion; it came to the Arab pagans of Makkah as well as to the Jews and the Christians.
    The insolence the Christian hate mongers launch against Islam must not turn them from the real purpose Islam came to warn them against.

    Muhammad had to come because all divine Books before the Koran disappeared or corrupted. The present adulterated Books contain only partial truths mixed with the erroneous tales and views of their human authors. The knowledge in these Books was infested with falsehood, and falsehood yields nothing but false hopes, and falsehood vested with ignorance and illiteracy afford conjecture.
    In consequence, Allah says in the Koran:

    So woe to those who write the Book with their hands, then say, ‘This is from Allah,’ that they may sell it for a little price; so woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for their earnings (Al-Baqarah, 79).

    And there is a sect of them twist their tongues with the Book, that you may suppose it part of the Book, yet it is not part of the Book; and they say, ‘It is from Allah,’ yet it is not from Allah, and they speak falsehood against Allah, and that wittingly (Al-Imrān, 7).

    Out of His mercy, and because Allah means no injustice to any of His servants, He sent Muhammad, the seal of the Prophets with the Koran – the last Testament to the world.

    It is He who sent His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may uplift it above every religion, though the unbelievers be averse (Al-Najm, 91).

    After nearly six hundred years from Jesus, Allah has sent Muhammad and for the last time, to make clear to the Christians the facts and to help them abandon imagination so that they cannot later on claim innocence and say, ‘No one came to us in the capacity of a spectacle and a warning.

    People of the Book, now there has come to you our Messenger, making things clear to you, upon an interval between the Messengers lest you should say, ‘There has not come to us any bearer of good tidings, neither any Warner.’ Indeed there has come to you a bearer of good tidings and a Warner; Allah is powerful over everything (Al-Maidah, 19).

    The Advent of Muhammad was mentioned in the Torah of Moses: Deut. 18: 18-20; 33: 1-2; Genesis 25: 13; 21: 21; Isaiah 42: 1-13; 21: 13-17; 42: 10-11; 28: 11; 28: 10; Habakkuk 3: 3.

    The advent of Muhammad was also mentioned in the Gospel of Jesus: John xiv. 16, xv. 26 and xvi 7.

    Yet, the Jews and the Christians concealed the prophecies contained in their Scriptures about the Holy Prophet. Because of enmity and jealousy they would not recognize him and would insist on mixing up truth with falsehood rather than accept the truth in its unalloyed purity.

    As we read in the Koran:

    Those to whom We gave the Book (Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad) as they recognize their sons, but some of them conceal the truth while they know it (the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Torah and the Gospel) (Al-Baqarah, 146).

    People of the Book! Why do you confound the truth with vanity, and conceal the truth while you knoe? (Al-Imran, 71).

    Those who keep from the knowledge of others the clear revelations which Allah presented in His Books, have earned the curse of Allah, the angels and the believers whose curse takes effect against whom it is uttered.

    Those who conceal the clear signs and the guidance that We have sent down, after We have shown them clearly in the Book – they shall be cursed by Allah and the cursers (Al-Baqarah, 159).

    Now we have the Koran, a Book containing divine wisdom and guidance to true salvation. A Book that brought good tidings to the believers in Allah’s Oneness, and a severe warning to the polytheists, idolaters and disbelievers. The Koran is one unified Book that is not subject to change by curtailments and additions. A Book that is well guarded by Allah until the Day of Resurrection, an unchangeable Book that stood the test of time. The Koran is a decisive Message and no pleasantry, a Book that we must read thoroughly to know the ultimate truth.

    Allah says in the Koran:

    What, do they desire another religion than Allah’s, and to Him has surrendered whoso in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and to Him they shall be returned?
    Say: ‘We believe in Allah, and that which has been sent down on us (the Koran), and the Tribes, and in that which was given to Moses and Jesus, and the Prophets of their Lord; we make no division between any of them, and to him we surrender (in Islam).’
    Whoso desires another religion than Islam, it shall not be accepted of him; in the next world he shall be among the losers (Al-Imrān 83-85).

    Now we are asked to listen to the proclamation of Muhammad’s universal mission. We contemplate no longer after this, partial truths. It is not now a question of saving Israel from the bondage of Egypt, nor teaching Midian the ethics of business, nor reclaiming the people of Lute from sexual sin or Thamud from the sin of oppression in power, or Ä‚d from arrogance or ancestor-worship. Now are set forth plainly the issues of life and death, the final Message of Allah, the One universal God to all mankind.

    The Message states clearly the one and true religion of Allah which He sent to all Prophets until Muhammad, the seal of the Prophets – Allah is One and He is to be worshipped alone without associating with Him any partners, i.e. Islam. This is the only religion that Allah will accept from His servants on the Day of Resurrection – pure monotheism.
    As the Koran states:

    Say: ‘O mankind, I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, of Him to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He. He gives life and makes to die. Believe then in Allah, and His Messenger, the Prophet of the common folk, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him; haply so you will be guided (Al-A’rāf, 158).

    The Muslim position is clear. The Muslim does not claim to have a religion peculiar to him. Islam is not a sect or an ethnic religion. In its view all religion is one, for the truth is one. It was the religion preached by all earlier Prophets. It was the truth taught by all inspired Books. In essence it amounts to a consciousness of the will and plan of Allah and a joyful submission to that will and plan. If anyone wants a religion other than that, he is false to his own nature, and he is false to Allah’s will and plan. Such a one cannot expect guidance, for he has deliberately renounced guidance.

    The mission of Muhammad is therefore clear – to re-establish the oneness of Allah on earth.

    The Koran says:

    Say: ‘I am commanded only to worship Allah and not to join partners with Him. To Him I call, and to Him is my return.’ (Ar-Ra’d, 13).

    Say: ‘I have been commanded to serve Allah making my religion His sincerely; and I have been commanded to be the first of those that surrender.’
    Say: ‘Truly I fear, if I should rebel against my Lord, the chastisement of a dreadful Day.’
    Say: ‘Allah I serve, making my religion Him sincerely .'(Al-Zumar 11-14).

    The Prophet of Islam was ordered to follow the religion of Abraham which was pure monotheism – Islam:

    Say: ‘As for me, my Lord has guided me to a straight path, a right religion, the creed of Abraham, a man of pure faith; he was no idolater.’
    Say: ‘My prayer, my ritual sacrifice, my living, my dying – all belongs to Allah, the Lord of all Being.
    No associate has He. Even so I have been commanded, and I am the first of those that surrender (Al-An’am 161-163).

    Islam came to invite the Christians – who corrupted their Scriptures and invented peculiar dogmas that took them far away from the right path – to worship the One God Allah and not to incorporate with him other deities.

    The Koran Says:

    People of the Book! Come now to a word common between us and you, that we serve none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with Him, and do not some of us take others as lords apart from Allah. And if they turn their backs, say: ‘Bear weitness that we are Muslims (Al-Imrān, 64).

    Had the people of the Book believed, it were better for them; some of them are believers, but the most of them are ungodly (Al-Imran, 110).

    The Christians claim that Jesus sacrificed himself on the cross in order to erase their sins. They live without sins because their sins were forgiven! They can even go to a priest and confess their sins, and the priest grants them forgiveness! The priest here serves as a mediator between the sinner and the Creator!

    The Christians believe that Adam’s sin was inherited by his offspring, so all people are sinners, and Jesus had to sacrifice himself to free the sinners from guilt.

    The Christians believe that Eve was the one who tempted Adam to eat from the forbidden tree, this is why she was cursed in their Books!

    The Christians believe that God is one in a Trinity, the father, the son and the Holy Ghost, all three are one god. They took Jesus as god apart from the Creator. Jesus is their sole lord whom they worship in a Trinity.

    Islam came to reject the odd and peculiar dogmas the Christians invented in their religion.

    Speaking of vicarious atonement, the Books of all Prophets including Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, stated that man is responsible for his sins an no other innocent man would carry his sins on the Day of Judgment.

    The divine verdict regarding man’s responsibility for his own sins was old enough to be mentioned in the scrolls of Abraham and the Book of Moses

    The Koran states:

    Or has he not been told of what is in the scrolls of Moses and Abraham, he who paid his debt in full?
    that no soul laden bears the load of another, and that a man shall have to his account only as he has labored, and that his laboring shall surely be seen, then he shall be recompensed for it with the fullest recompense, and that the final end is unto thy Lord (Al-Najm 36-42).

    The Koran strongly emphasized man’s responsibility for his own sins, he cannot transfer his sins to someone else, nor can anyone vicariously atone for his sins.

    As we read in the Koran:

    Say: ‘Shall I seek a lord other than Allah, who is the Lord of all things?’
    Every soul earns only to its own account; no soul laden bears the load of another. Then to your Lord shall you return, and He will tell you of that whereon you were at variance (Al-An’am, 146).

    As for the Christian doctrine that Adam sinned and his offspring inherited his sin thus needing Jesus to atone their sins, the Koran rejected this doctrine completely. The Koran also rejects the claim that Eve was cursed because she was the one who tempted Adam to eat from the forbidden tree. The Koran however states that Satan was the one who tempted Adam and not Eve. The Koran clearly states that prompted by the sense of guilt, Adam felt shame, but because guilt did not reside in the intention, Allah in mercy inspired Adam with a prayer for invoking His forgiveness, and in turn did Allah give up resentment against him and pardon his offence. It is he who always accepts true repentance.

    The Koran says:

    And We said, ‘Adam, dwell thou, and thy wife, in the Garden, and eat thereof easefully where you desire; but draw not nigh this tree, lesy you be evildoers.’
    Then Satan caused them to slip there from and brought them out of that they were in; and We said, ‘Get all you down, each of you an enemy of each; and in the earth a sojourn shall be yours, and enjoyment for a time.’
    Then Adam received certain words from His Lord (Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If you forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers 7: 23), and His Lord pardoned him; verily He is the One who forgives, the Most Merciful (Al-Baqarah 35-37).

    As for Jesus crucifixion, the Christians themselves differed about his identity.

    The Jews uphold the theory of the killing of Christ whom they never recognized. . The Christians insist on crucifixion, burial and resurrection on the third day. The four Bibles relate the incident differently. The face of Yehuda who led the soldiers to arrest Christ was transfigured into that of Christ who had already been rescued by the angels through the window to the third heaven. By consequence it was Yehuda who suffered crucifixion.

    The Basilidians believed in the substitution, on the other hand the Docetae believed that Christ never has a physical body but a phantom body and therefore his crucifixion was only apparent but not real.

    The Marcionite Gospel denied that Jesus was born and that he was only phantom who appeared in human form. The Gospel of St. Barnabas supported the theory of substitution on the cross.

    The Orthodox Christian Churches make it a cardinal point of their doctrine that his life was taken on the cross, that he died and was buried, that on the third day he rose in the body with his wounds intact, and walked about and conversed, and ate with his disciples, and afterwards taken up bodily to heaven. This is necessary for the theological doctrine of blood sacrifice and vicarious atonement for sins!

    The Koranic teaching is that Christ was not crucified nor killed by the Jews but they thought they did. And those who disputed his fate were themselves in a state of uncertainty as to the truth of the incident; their belief was based on empty knowledge and their opposition was formed on grounds admittedly insufficient, for indeed they just did not slay him but the guilt nevertheless resided in the intention. But Allah had taken him up to His August presence.
    The Koranic statement the Jesus was not crucified but Allah lifted him up to Him came in the course of the Koranic verses narrating the iniquities of the Jews:

    So, for their breaking the compact, and disbelieving in the signs of Allah, and slaying their Prophets without right, and for their saying, ‘our hearts are uncircumcised’ – nay, but Allah sealed them for their unbelief, so they believe not, except a few.
    And for their unbelief, and their uttering against Mary a mighty calumny, and for their saying, ‘We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’ – yet they did not slay him, neither crucified him, only a like ness of that was shown to them.
    Those who are at variance concerning him surely are in doubt regarding him; they have no knowledge of him, except the following of surmise; and they slew him not of a certainty – no indeed; Allah raised him up to Him; Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise (Al-Nisa 155-158).

    Jesus was not God, but only a human. If he were god he wouldn’t have prayed for Allah in great agony to take away the cup of death on the cross from him (Mark, 14: 36; Matt. 26: 29; Luke, 22: 42; and out of Allah’s mercy his prayer was heard (Heb. 5: 7).

    As for considering Jesus as god or the son of God, the Koran clearly states that infidels indeed are those who declare that Allah is the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophet was ordered to say to the Christians, ‘Who then can restrain Allah in any way, if He willed to destroy the Messiah, jesus, the son of Mary, his mother, and all those domiciled on earth!

    They are unbelievers who say, ‘Allah is the messiah, Mary’s son.’ Say: ‘Who then shall overrule Allah in any way if He desires to destroy the Messiah, Mary’s son, and his mother, and all those who are on earth?’ For to Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and of the earth, and all that is between them, creating what He will. Allah is powerful over everything (Al-Maidah, 17).

    As the Koran states, worshipping Jesus as god or apart from God amounts to glaring blasphemy:

    They are unbelievers who say, ‘Allah is the Messiah, Mary’s son.’ For the Messiah said: ‘Children of Israel, serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Verily whoso associates with Allah anything, Allah shall prohibit him entrance to Paradise, and his refuge shall be the Fire; and wrongdoers shall have no helpers (Al-Maidah, 72).

    The above mentioned Koranic verse is even confirmed by several Christian Scriptures. We see in Matt. Iv. 10, where Christ rebukes Satan for desiring the worship of others than Allah’s. John xx. 17, where Christ says to Mary Magdalene, ‘Go unto my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my father and your father; and to my God and your God.’ Also in Luke xxiii, 19, where Christ rebukes a certain ruler for calling him good master: ‘Why callest thou me good? None is good, save One, that is, God.’ In Mark xii. 25 Jesus says: ‘the first of all the commandments is, hear O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord.’

    The concept of Trinity is also clearly condemned in the Koran:

    They are unbelievers who say, ‘Allah is the third of three.’ No god is there but One God. If they refrain not from what they say, there shall afflict those of them that dis believe a painful chastisement (Al-Maidah, 73).

    Allah is One, His Message is one; yet how people’s perversity transforms truth into falsehood, religion into superstition! The Messiah, the son of Mary, was no more than an Apostle; many messengers like him have passed away before him. His mother was a pious woman vested with saintliness of life and character; she and her son had to consume food to sustain their lives and therefore be destined to die.

    The Messiah, son of Mary was only a Messenger, Messengers before him passed away; his mother was a just woman; they both ate food. Behold, how We make clear the signs to them; then behold, how they perverted are! (Al-Maidah, 75).

    The Christians worshipped Jesus apart from Allah, although Jesus can neither do them harm nor can he affords them help. Allah is the only
    one who controls their fate.

    Say: ‘Do you serve apart from Allah, that which cannot hurt or profit you? Allah the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing (Al-Maidah, 76).

    On the Day of Resurrection Jesus will not be there to carry the sins of others because Allah is the only one who can justly punish His servants for disobedience, no one can say to him nay, for He is high above all.
    On that mighty Day, Jesus will be busy defending himself before Allah by trying hard to answer Allah’s question: ‘Did you O Jesus, the son of Mary, ask the people to take you and your mother as two gods besides God and pay you the same tribute that is dutiful only to Me!’
    Jesus will disclaim any knowledge of the sorts of things that are attributed to him by those who take his name. Jesus will acknowledge that he was mortal, and that his knowledge was limited like that of a mortal.

    As we read in the Koan:

    And when Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say unto men: ‘Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?'” He will say: “Glory is to you! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, you would surely, have known it. You know what is within my soul, and I know not is within Your soul; truly You, only You, are the All-Knower of all that is unseen.
    Never did I say to them aught except what you did command me to say: ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them while I remained among them, but when you took me up, You were the Watcher over them; and You are a Witness to all things.
    If you punish them, they are your slaves, and if You forgive them, You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
    Allah will say: ‘this is a Day on which the truthful will profit from their truth; theirs are Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise) – they shall abide therein forever. Allah is pleased with them and they with Him. That is the great success (Paradise) (Al-Maidah 116-119).

    The above verses are a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole world. And he who disregards Allah’s revelations will find Allah is swift in calling to accounts.

    And whoso disbelieves in Allah’s signs, Allah is swift at the reckoning (Al-Imran, 19).

    Those who dispute about the signs of Allah which are clear to all who care to see, are merely in far error. They turn a deaf ear to Allah’s revelation and refuse to listen but to their own conception which is an imagination proceeding from their deviated senses. They will come to know the fatal consequence of their denial of Allah’s authority, when in time they bear the yoke and be dragged in chains, plunged into boilers and from thence into Hell where they suffer torment. There and then they will be asked, ‘Where are those whom you incorporated with Allah in worship?’ They will say, ‘They have vanished away.’ They further lie and say, ‘We did not worship anything before.’ Thus Allah leads astray the disbelievers. Allah will throw them in Hell to abide therein forever because they rejected Allah’s signs, and incorporated with Him in worship other deities (Jesus, priest, pope, saint, idol, nature, prophet etc”).

    Hast thou not regarded those who dispute concerning the signs of Allah, how they are turned about?
    Those who cries lies to the Book and that wherewith We sent Our Messengers – soon they will know!
    When the fetters and chains are on their necks, and they dragged into the boiling water, then into the Fire they are poured; then it is said to them, ‘Where are those you associated apart from Allah?’ They shall say, ‘They have gone astray from us; nay, but it was nothing at all thay we called upon aforetime.’
    Even so Allah leads astray the unbelievers.
    That is because you rejoiced in the earth without right, and were exultant. Enter the gates of Hell to dwell therein forever.’ How evil the lodging of those that are proud (Ghafir 69-76).

    Such is the requital of the enemies of Allah – the Fire, a fit requital for that they used to deny Allah’s signs.

    That is the recompense of Allah’s enemies – the Fire, wherein they shall have the Abode of Eternity as a recompense, for that they denied His signs (Fussilat, 28).

    The one true reality is that Allah is One. Blessed are those who treasured this truth in their souls while still living their life of probation.

    This is a Message to be delivered to mankind that they may be warned by it, and that they may know that He is one God, and that all possessed of mind may remember (Ibrahim, 52).

    How short-wicked mankind’s memory is, that we can forget, so easily, the horrors that beset Jews, gypsies, the mentally deficient, and homosexuals, prior to, and throughout WWII.

    The story of Hitler’s Reich and Churchill’s fight to eradicate it should be required study in all history classes in the western world. I bet you won’t find it anywhere in Eurabian or British classes now.

    More than anything we must learn that the appeasement of evil should not go unnoticed and we must fight tooth and nail to prevent the suppression of freedom of speech, or we are doomed.

    History certainly does repeat itself, all has gone before in our recent history. The political elite and their useful idiots in the establishment appease Muslims and promote the lie of social cohesion At the detriment to their own kind. They are self interested naive cowards.
