The Quran~In Its Own Words

Sura 2:191-193 “And slay them wherever you find them, and drive them out of the places where they drive you out, for persecution (of Muslims) is worse than slaughter (of non-believers)..and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

Sura 8:12 “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

Sura 3:56 “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Sura 8:59-60 “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s purpose) Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all you can of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby you may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

Sura 4:95 “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in faith) has Allah promised good: but those who strive and fight has He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward.”

Sura 4:104 “And be not weakhearted in  pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain.”

Sura 2:216 “Fighting is prescribed for you, and you dislike it. But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not.”

Sura 5:33 “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his Messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”

Sura 9:5 “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”

Sura 9:38-39 “O you who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when you are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, you cling heavily to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless you go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.”

Sura 9:41-42 “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if you but knew. If there had been immediate gain (in sight) , and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt follow you, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them.”

Sura 9:73 “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”

Sura 47:35 “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when you should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you.”

Sura 48:29 “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful amongst themselves.”

Sura 9:111 “Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

Sura 61:4 “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way!”

Let’s begin with Sura 2:191-193. Although the argument could be made that this is a defensive passage, there are two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of unbelievers is authorized in the event of “persecution” ( a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that the fighting may persist until “religion is for Allah.” The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring. The radicals believe that they must dominate the world with Islam until there are no unbelievers left alive.

Sura 8:12 speaks of striking off the heads and fingertips of those who disbelieve. I have personally seen many examples of beheadings and hands without fingertips. Striking terror is their way, and they have shown us how well they have mastered the art.

Sura 3:56 says he will punish those who reject Islam with terrible agony, in this world and in the hereafter. The Bible speaks of eternal torment in the hereafter, but the Quran punishes those who are still alive as well. There is no escape, no salvation, no forgiveness.

In Sura 8:59-60, it calls for all-out war against those who reject Islam. Clearly anyone who chooses their own faith is an unbeliever, an infidel, and worthy of death.

Sura 4:95 “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons.” Well. This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. And who receive no hurt? He wants them to get hurt? He wants his followers to die. He punishes those who don’t physically go out and “strive for the cause of Allah.” What kind of god commands his followers, those who believe in him, to go out and murder  people? What kind of seething hate must Allah have for his followers if he tells them they must suffer, in such ways, for his cause?

Sura 9:38-39 “O you who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when you are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, you cling heavily to this earth?” Oh, I love this one. He’s pretty much telling people he wants them to die here on earth. “What’s the matter with you, that you want to live?” What kind of god tells his believers that something is wrong with them if they want to live? My God doesn’t. He tells me I can have an abundant life here on this earth and an eternal life in Heaven, with Him.

Sura 47:35  He tells his followers to not cry out for peace, until they have the upper hand. Don’t cry out for peace? I thought it was a “peaceful” religion. And this clearly tells us that there will be no peace in the Islamic world until Islam reigns supreme.

In Sura 9:111, he says that Allah has purchased of the believers their goods and their persons; that they fight in his cause; slay, and are slain. This means that he requires of them their belongings and their lives, and in return for that, they get to go to war against innocent people who don’t believe in Allah. Is the irony clear here? He demands that they kill in his name, he demands their lives as many will die in battle, and there is no assurance of salvation when they do die.

Surely Allah loves those who fight in his way. That’s sad. To so fully believe in a god who requires such senseless death. To say Islam is a peaceful religion when all of the evidence points to the contrary puts us in a position of vulnerability when it comes to freedom of religion here in America. Our Constitution was founded on basic freedoms, and the freedom to practice our faith is tantamount to our society. Without it, we go backward instead of forward.

I call upon moderate Muslim voices to speak out against the radicals and the extremists. America needs to hear your voices and to hear your concerns about radical jihad. We see what’s happening in Europe and other places, and we see it here as well. Many of us want to open up discussions, ways to work together to combat extremism. If we don’t hear your voices, we start to wonder why. Why aren’t they speaking out against radicals? Why aren’t they denouncing terrorist acts? We start to think that it’s okay with you, and if it isn’t okay, then we need to hear it from you. Hold forums, invite moderates like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser to speak. He’s a devout Muslim who is speaking out against radicals, and he’s being attacked for it. Why? With the millions of moderate Muslims here in America, who say they want peace, why aren’t they speaking out about the threats to moderates? I’m sure there are many more moderates out there than there are radicals. The problem is that the radicals are making themselves heard, in a very big way, and the moderates aren’t saying enough. America is founded on freedoms. If we allow Sharia here, and yes, it is here already, we are taking away not only our own freedoms, but yours as well. If America goes to other countries to aid them in their struggles for democracy, and we allow Sharia here, we’re taking away the meaning of the countless lives that have been lost in the struggle for freedom. Let us hear your voice, moderate Muslims. We need to know that radical extremism is not okay with you. We need you to hold forums, and invite national news agencies, like Fox, or CNN. We need to denounce Sharia, because CAIR is very active in trying to institute it here in America. We need to work together now to combat radical jihadists, otherwise, they will win here, as they have in so many other countries today. God doesn’t want evil to win. He wants us to have abundant lives, freedom to worship whom we choose, freedom to live side by side in peace, without fear of retaliation. Enough freedom to allow a Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew, to walk to a restaurant together to have supper. The America today allows that. The America tomorrow, if we don’t stop Sharia now, would not allow that. Thank you.

      I didn’t go to an anti-Islam site. Are these words not written in the Quran?

      • shami says:

        we have saying in Holy Quran:
        ” do not come near prayers”
        yet, if you read more: “while you are drunk”
        you can not look at partial statements and try to make sense of it.
        Islam has mandate to protect all faithfuls against: non-believers

      • luchadora41 says:

        You say Islam has a mandate to protect all faithfuls against non-believers. Protect? Okay, if non-believers go attack them in a Mosque, yes, I can understand protection. But answer me this: when suicide bombers go attack innocent people, is that considered protection? Or is it an attack? Islam doesn’t just defend itself, it goes out to cause destruction, and war, and total domination over the West until we bow down and worship Allah. Haven’t you said to me before, “Submission to Allah”? Do you deny this? Do you deny that Islam wants to dominate the West?

    • Shami:
      You claim Kristy left out 2:190, which would show these fights were in self-defense. Is that right? You are wrong because even Tafsīr al-Jalālayn states clearly on verses 190 and 191:
      “After the Prophet (s) was prevented from [visiting] the House in the year of the battle of Hudaybiyya, he made a pact with the disbelievers that he would be allowed to return the following year, at which time they would vacate Mecca for three days. Having prepared to depart for the Visitation [‘umra], [he and] the believers were concerned that Quraysh would not keep to the agreement and instigate fighting. The Muslims were averse to becoming engaged in fighting while in a state of pilgrimage inviolability in the Sacred Enclosure [al-haram] and during the sacred months, and so the following was revealed: And fight in the way of God, to elevate His religion, with those who fight against you, the disbelievers, but aggress not, against them by initiating the fighting; God loves not the aggressors, the ones that overstep the bounds which God has set for them: this stipulation was abrogated by the verse of barā’a, ‘immunity’ [Q. 9:1], or by His saying [below]:”
      “And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you, that is, from Mecca, and this was done after the Conquest of Mecca; sedition, their idolatry, is more grievous, more serious, than slaying, them in the Sacred Enclosure or while in a state of pilgrimage inviolability, the thing that you greatly feared. But fight them not by the Sacred Mosque, that is, in the Sacred Enclosure, until they should fight you there; then if they fight you, there, slay them, there (a variant reading drops the alif in the three verbs [sc. wa-lā taqtilūhum, hattā yaqtulūkum, fa-in qatalūkum, so that the sense is ‘slaying’ in all three, and not just ‘fighting’]) — such, killing and expulsion, is the requital of disbelievers.”
      Where is the self-defense you are referring to?
      While you are at it, if Islam is actually about peace, freedom and liberty, would you please explain this Hadith which appears in Malik’s Muwatta Book 45, Number 45.5.18, “Two deens [religions] shall not co-exist in the Arabian Peninsula,’ and he therefore expelled the Jews from Khaybar.” Bracket Mine. Do you have any explanation?

  2. FantasticFantasy says:

    1. Your statement that claims Muslims aren’t speaking out against extreamists, is (from everything I have seen) wholly incorrect, simply use Google to search for those that have and you will see why I say this.

    2. Zuhdi Jasser, if you read some of the things he has said, including supporting wars, among other things, (again search to find this yourself, I don’t expect you to trust me or anyone else) so lets say someone were making these arguments against your own religion, or ideology or political party or whatever other group, well you would find people don’t react very supportively (especially when there is bias in the statements). Some of what he says maybe true, some maybe false, but I think there are far better alternatives than he, to promote peace and freedom, I think you support him because it aids you, not because it is the truth.

    3. Sharia, many talk of it like they are experts, there maybe some controversial aspects no doubt, but there are also fundemental ideals to this aspect of the religion, (which have nothing to do with extreamism) that is in Sharia also. I find most people talking about it don’t have a good understanding of what it means, or if they do to some extent, (and btw I don’t completlely understand it either, so this is no intelectual high ground, but I do understand it is vastly more complicated than the explanations I hear out of the ‘ban it’ camp), anyway, if they do understand some small part, they tar the entire practice with that brush, which is just again, just wrong, factually and proberbly logically too.

    4. There is also the Tafseer, which is the exegesis of the quran, which also gives another level of understanding. There is history, and context to the verses, and that is just fact, as it with most text, and with text of this nature we need to understand those contexts, those historical facts, those commentaries, and such, if we care about the truth. You, in my humble opinion have not done this.

    5. You also say you haven’t gotten these quotes off anti-islamic websites, which is pretty laughable because these quotes are pasted all over these sites. At the very least if you want an unbiased source then do not go to these websites, and I don’t want to tell you to go to Muslims websites with your questions, as you proberbly would not accept what they had to say, so one of the alternatives could be university or research websites on this topic.

    I don’t expect a reply, or anything, but I was bored so I wrote this out, although I’ll end by leaving you with a quote: “the pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple”

    Peace, be with you.

    • luchadora41 says:

      1. I’d like to see moderate Muslim voices on national news, even international news, denouncing extremism. Inviting discussions with others and talking about solutions.
      2. I don’t support Zuhdi because it aids me. It doesn’t aid me. I like him, I agree with what he says, that’s all.
      3. What I understand of Sharia is that it is a form of tyranny wrapped up in laws that are outdated. I understand that the West has become too liberal, with abortion, homosexuality, and pornography. Sharia attempts to address some of these issues, but what they put in place is all out control over one’s life. A woman gets raped, she needs 4 witnesses to verify her story, and she gets lashed for it? No. Sharia is a dangerous way of life that only serves to benefit the men who can’t control themselves.
      4. The Quran is not written in much of a historical context. Many who have read it are confused by it themselves. They don’t know why the Quran contradicts itself, and many don’t understand how something written later can do away with what was written in earlier times. Very confusing, to say the least. And you cannot deny the orders to kill infidels.
      5. You say I got these “quotes” from anti-Islamic websites? Does this mean that the Quran is anti-Islamic, because are not the Suras I’ve included actually Suras in the Quran? Please, correct me if I’m wrong. Are these Suras in the Quran or not?
      “The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.” I disagree. The truth I know, God’s truth, the truth that Jesus Christ is His one and only Son, is simple, and it’s the purest thing I know.

  3. Kristy,
    All the verses you have quoted were from the Medina period. You did a great job. They, without any doubt, show Allah sanctioned violence against non-Muslims.

    • luchadora41 says:

      Thank you, Hussein. I very much appreciate your kind words, especially someone from your knowledgeable background. Yes, Allah did sanction violence against non-Muslims, even his own people who don’t obey. I’m not sure, but as far as I know, Muslims aren’t assured of their own salvation. Is this true?

  4. Well, I wrote an article about Allah saying in the Qur’an every Muslim must go to Hell; even the pious ones must first go to Hell. You can find “Allah, Prophet Muhammad, Muslims and Hell” here.

  5. Ya Shami says:

    we all [humans] go-by-Hell
    then= the believers are saved, any lack of full education hurt:
    Quran:19:
    There is not one of you but shall approach it. That is a fixed ordinance of thy Lord. (71) Then We shall rescue those who kept from evil, and leave the evil-doers crouching there. (72)
    ==
    furthermore, prophets, saints, pass it from far:
    [above it very High]
    Quran:21:
    Lo! those unto whom kindness hath gone forth before from Us, they will be far removed from thence. (101) They will not hear the slightest sound thereof, while they abide in that which their souls desire. (102) The Supreme Horror will not grieve them, and the angels will welcome them, (saying): This is your Day which ye were promised; (103)

  6. luchadora41 says:

    Shami, what about John 3:15-16? “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
    John 5:24~Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.”
    Why are you so in love with a god who wants you dead, physically and spiritually?

  7. I was hoping I could do this verse by verse, but it would end up being one long comment. I’ve decided to break it down with each comment containing one verse and the information behind it.

    The message of Islam is universal. From early times the Muslims were only permitted to fight in self defence. When there is no option, and in the face of persecution, however, the Muslims must fight. The strength of Islam lies in its certainty of ultimate victory over aggression, transgression, and ascribing falsehood to Allah and His last prophet. Fitna can mean oppression, persecution, seduction – all implying the “discord” that attachment with ghayrallah (other-than-Allah) brings about. It is used as in verse 217 of this surah – war is detestable but fitna is worse than slaughter. Islam promotes peace, order and harmony in the human society and keeps man on the right path. When the enemies of Islam found that the light of this message was sweeping darkness from every corner, the disbelievers vowed to annihilate it. It was only then that, no recourse being left for the believers, they had to resolutely take up the sword in defence. Verses 39 and 40 of al Hajj also give permission to fight when any people is wronged, oppressed and persecuted.

    If Numbers 25: 1 to 3 and 31: 7 to 18 in the Old Testament are read carefully one comes to the conclusion that when the Israelites, in Shitim, began to worship the gods of Moab the Lord God asked Moses to “take all the leaders of the people and hurl them down to their death before the Lord.”

    And they made war on Midians as the Lord has commanded Moses, and slew all the men. The Israelites took captive the Madianite women and children, and carried off all their cattle, their flocks and their property. They burnt all their cities. Moses asked them to kill every male child and every women who has had intercourse with a man.

    So in the way of Allah, the prophets were commanded to put an end to the activities of the disbelievers who wanted to destroy the true devotees of Allah in order to stop the advancement and progress of the religion of Allah. The Quran commands the Muslims not to exceed the limits but to fight evil until its power base is dislodged, and if the kafirs desist then to show mercy. Compared to what the other prophets did, as commanded by Allah, to destroy the unbelievers, the role assigned to the Holy Prophet as the “mercy unto the worlds” was the most benign of all the campaigns undertaken by His messengers to liberate mankind from the clutches of the enemies of Allah. He fought and killed the enemy whenever war was imposed on him.

    Nobody who has any idea of the miserable conditions of the early Muslims, would for a moment imagine that this handful of people could have wantonly set themselves to provoke the active hostility of the whole world about them. They would quietly have borne any provocation rather than take the risk of fighting numberless hordes. If they did engage themselves in this way, one would presume that circumstances had forced them to it; unless their very existence was in peril, they could not possibly have thought to plunge themselves into a mortal struggle. This is so clear a priori that even if the initiative did appear to be taken by Muslims, no sane minded person would for a moment suppose that they were really offensive wars – they must have been offensive with a defensive import. The circumstances had forced them to take action, and if the Holy Prophet had not been quick to it and had waited for a formal assault from the other side, he would only have given the enemy time to collect their forces; and who can doubt that in that case, the world would soon have heard the last of this little band of Muslims.

    Yet such is the perversity of prejudice that no such considerations, obvious as they are, are allowed to have any weight with writers like Muir, Sale, Neoldeke and others. All they can see is that in the battle of Badr and its prelude, the raid of Abdullah bin Jahsh, it was the Muslims that began the quarrel with the infidels. What the infidels had been doing all the time before is, as a matter of principle, ignored and forgotten.

    How deep-rooted was the acrimony which drove the infidels on against the new converts, may be easily judged from their pursuing them down even to Abyssinia, to where the Muslims had fled to avoid the horrible tortures they were suffering at their hands. The infidels would not let them live in peace even in other lands. Could it be imagined that they could all complacently see them flourish and develop their mission from a centre only 70 miles away from themselves? What are the facts? Soon after the emigration of the Holy Prophet, they wrote to the chief of Madina, Abdullah ibna Obay, as follows:

    You have given protection to our man. We have sworn by God that you either kill him or expel him, otherwise we will come upon you with all of us. and kill your fighting men and take hold of your women as lawful for us”

    Obay bin Kab says, “When the Holy Prophet and his people came to Madina and the Ansars took them under their protection, all the Arabs were united to make an assault upon them. They never lay down to sleep except with their weapons with them.”

    This is not the place to give an account of the various wars and battles that were fought. They will be described under the various verses relating to them.

    This is merely an introduction that may help us to understand the true state of things at the time. All this is quietly passed over by European critics of Islam.

    Finally it should be noted that as without jihad correspondence of the Holy Prophet to the career of prophet Musa would fail to be perfect, Islam would also fail to be a complete and perfect religion for the world. Fighting has well been said to be the direct necessity of human nature, a religion that did not provide for it, did not regulate its principles and define its rightful limits, would not be a perfect religion, much less a final religion for the world.

      You’re good, Mohammad. You are really good. I will respond more fully when I can take the time to read this better. Thank you, and I’ll get back soon.

  8. Quran 8:12
    This verse alone, like many others must be understood by reading the previous and following verses. The commentary relates to us that in the first few verses, it speaks about one of the first battles in Islam.

    See commentary of Ali Imran: 10 to 13; 123 to 127 for the battle of Badr which has been referred to in these verses. The Holy Prophet learnt that a caravan of the Quraysh laden with merchandise, under Abu Sufyan, was coming from Syria. Abu Sufyan sent a message to Abu Jahl that the Muslims were planning to attack his caravan in order to seize the merchandise he was bringing from Syria. The Holy Prophet, as guided by Allah, decided to leave the caravan and march out boldly against the well-armed and well equipped Quraysh army coming from Makka under the command of Abu Jahl in order to destroy the Muslims in Madina, even though some of the very close companions opposed this policy. There was a party which was not wholeheartedly submissive to the divine order, but Sad bin Ma-adh and Miqdad said: “We will do as the Holy Prophet commands.” The Quraysh army, full of zeal and fury, advanced to annihilate from the face of the earth the meagre band of 313 ill-fed and poorly equipped Muslims. The Holy Prophet met the advancing army of Quraysh at Badr situated at a three day’s journey from Madina.

    Those who were averse to fighting were not convinced that it was a wise or prudent decision, therefore, they felt as if they were being driven to death while death was staring them in the face. They were frightened and perturbed. It was the first trial Muslims were put to in order to prove their faith in the truth. It was also a clear proof that the Holy Prophet was the true messenger of Allah, because unless it was so he would have not risked total annihilation of the handful of Muslims, certain to take place if Allah had not assured him that they would win the battle. By Allah’s help they won a splendid victory and the standard of truth was established, never to be lowered again.

    Hamza, Ubaydah and Ali were sent by the Holy Prophet to fight against Utbah, Shaybah and Walid in single combat. Ali and Hamza killed all the three combatants but Ubaydah was seriously wounded and succumbed to his injuries. He is the first martyr. Then the general combat began. Ali and Hamza destroyed the army of Quraysh beyond recovery. They ran away to Makka. See commentary of Ali Imran 123 to 127. While Ali and Hamza were in the battlefield, a large number of the Holy Prophet’s companions, acclaimed as the heroes of Islam, after his departure from this world, watched the fighting from a safe distance as unconcerned spectators.

    In addition to the decision the Holy Prophet took (not to attack the caravan and take possession of the rich booty but to fight against the Quraysh army), the other facts which clearly show that it was the pagans of Makka who took the initiative to attack the Muslims are: the 13 days distance between Makka and Madina-the Muslim travelled 3 days to meet the pagans of Makka at Badr, who had already left Makka 10 days before with full readiness to destroy the Muslims; and the material as well as the mental condition of the Muslims who were so unprepared for such an encounter that they saw nothing but death waiting for them.

    The commentary for the verse in question refers us to this:
    To help the Muslims Allah instilled terror into the hearts of the infidels in order to destroy their morale and sent angels to fight the foe along side the believers, so that the power base of the polytheism could be destroyed, otherwise, as always, they would oppose the religion of Allah and His Prophet. Thereafter whosoever opposes Allah and His Prophet shall be severely punished. This rule also applies to those who opposed the declaration of the Holy Prophet at Ghadir Khum (see commentary of Al Maidah: 67), persecuted and deprived Ali and Fatimah of their rights, killed and tortured their children, the progeny of the Holy Prophet, particularly Imam Husayn, the grandson of the messenger of Allah, in Karbala, and held captive his family after Karbala. Refer to the commentary of al Baqarah: 84, 97 and 98. Please refer to the punishment that will be inflicted on those who harassed and persecuted Bibi Fatimah and his children on page 51 and 105. Also refer to an Nisa: 93 and 115; Ahzab: 57 and Shura: 23.

  9. Quran 3:56
    I don’t know if you have read the verse before this one, but it speaks of Jesus. Quran 3:55 is as follows: And when Allah said: O Isa, I am going to terminate the period of your stay (on earth) and cause you to ascend unto Me and purify you of those who disbelieve and make those who follow you above those who disbelieve to the day of resurrection; then to Me shall be your return, so l will decide between you concerning that in which you differed.

    This is the commentary for the verse in question: Those who disbelieved in Isa and those who disbelieved in the Holy Prophet shall be severely punished and there will be no helpers to save them from the hell-fire. It implies that there are some approved intercessors (Muhammad and ali Muhammad) who will help and save those believers who remain attached with them.

  10. Quran 8:59-60
    If you apprehend treachery from a people with whom you have a treaty break off relations with them; and to put an end to treachery it is essential to inflict an exemplary punishment on those enemies who attack you by breaking treaties made with you so that no one from among them or after them may dare harass you again.

    Every infidel community was a prospective enemy of Islam.

    Quwwat literally means “force or strength”. It implies: Be always on the alert, fully prepared for defence and offence, and keep yourselves well armed and quipped with the best weapons, fully trained in the art of war, so that the enemy may not think that you are weak and surprise you with a sudden attack as was done by the Makkans at Badr.

    The preparation is to maintain peace by preventing the enemy to commit aggression against you. If you are fully ready to counter their attack they will think twice before launching an offensive adventure.

    If the enemy offers peace, rely on Allah and accept it. In case of deception on their part have faith in Allah. He will help and protect you through His chosen friend, Ali ibn abi Talib.

    Refer to the commentary of al Baqarah: 190 to 193 and 217.

  11. Quran 4:95
    This verse was revealed when Kab bin Malik, Rawah bin Rabi, Hilal bin Umiyah and Abdullah bin Maktum, without reasonable cause, stayed at Madina and did not join the defensive expedition of Tabuk. Allah has exalted those in rank, who fight for the faith with their wealth and selves, over those who sit idle (holding back). For the soldiers of Allah there are higher ranks with Him.

    As mentioned earlier, the Muslims only fight as a last resort.

  12. Quran 2:16
    There cannot be peace without battle against evil. Islam dislikes war, and yet without war against corruption and injustice, the by-products of aggressive infidelity, peaceful existence and freedom of worship of One God cannot be preserved. Love of peace, harmony and freedom is rooted in the hatred of injustice, hypocrisy and chaos, which should be isolated and kept at bay by those who believe in Allah and submit to Him (Hajj: 40). Please refer to the commentary of 190 to 194 of this surah, and verse 39 of al Hajj. Permission to fight has been given to put an end to persecution and mischief-making, in order to establish freedom of worship. The mission of the Holy Prophet was based upon rational doctrines to establish the (divine) rule of law for the welfare of the whole human race. To stop this universal movement, the pagans, the Jews and the Christians left no stone unturned, because they wanted to maintain the status quo of the exploitation of man by man, to serve the interests of the wicked, devilish and brutal ruling classes. But the Holy Prophet could not give up his divinely commissioned mission, so he did not. He had to take steps to liquidate kufr in order to serve the cause of truth. Before him the other messengers of Allah did the same. Even the followers of Christ and Buddha could not do without pre-emptive strike to forestall hostile actions. Of course, this may give licence to the mischief-makers to guise their personal interests in the garb of “the larger interest of the humanity”; therefore, to cancel the misuse of this principle, the Quran has prescribed certain qualifications in a person, or group of persons, who alone are entitled to resort to the right of a pre-emptive strike.

  13. Ref: “To stop this universal movement, the pagans, the Jews and the Christians left no stone unturned, because they wanted to maintain the status quo of the exploitation of man by man, to serve the interests of the wicked, devilish and brutal ruling classes. But the Holy Prophet could not give up his divinely commissioned mission, so he did not.”

    I don’t wish to debate this since my opinions are from a perspective that isn’t about literal interpretation of details…but an overview. I would like to just comment on the above reference. Islam is a “universal movement” as it says. I believe all are fully aware of this goal. I oppose this goal which seeks to take from me what is my right to choose my form of worship. And to what follows – that Jews and Christians wanted to maintain the status quo …exploitation of man by man, to serve the interests of the wicked….etc. This is not truth…as Jews and Christians alike seek the light of truth, to grow in knowledge, love, compassion, mercy and wisdom. We have moved beyond the dark ages of brutal conquest in the name of our God (as in the Crusades). To date, my observations of Islam and Sharia reveal much that is good…but even more that remains masked behind a veil of darkness.

      Very well said, Roger’s daughter, and I appreciate your truthful words. No one has the right to come to my country to try to impose their form of Sharia law and replace our Constitution, which has been defended by the blood of countless men and women who fought for our right to freedom of worship. If they want Sharia, let them keep it in their own countries and leave ours alone.

    Recently Muslims in London protested against a proposed “mega-mosque” near the Olympic stadium, saying they knew the people behind it would try to radicalise their kids, so perhaps patriot movements are helping moderate Muslims to find their voices.

    People often justify stuff in the Koran by saying that the Bible contains verses about stoning, but are unable to reply when you ask them when was the last time Jews or Christians stoned people.

    • luchadora41 says:

      Agreed. The amount of discourse there has been about Islam has likely helped Muslims examine it in perhaps a different light, and I hope patriot movements are helping them to find their voices. You’re right, and that’s a good thing to point out. When was the last time Jews or Christians stoned someone? Instead of defending what’s indefensible, some tend to attack Judaism and Christianity, which is a diversion from what the real subject is. Islam is trying to impose its Caliphate, not Judaism or Christianity, and Islam kills those who don’t submit. That’s what needs to be stopped.

    The arguments can go on forever. The BIG bug bear for me living in the UK if you like is the Islamic communities living here are demanding preferential treatments if you like, than the wider communities in which they live. They make demands on religious grounds, we aren’t allowed to speak out against how we feel Islam is taking over in Britain, because that makes us racist.
    It needs to stop. Islamic leaders need to stop forcing Islam down people’s throats!! I can see what will happen. The Islamic communites will grow and grow, tensions will rise and rise. Eventually there will be enough to politicy form a party and it will get elected by an Islamic majority (in years to come if we carry on there’ll be more muslims than Christians in Britain) and all our freedoms that our grandparents fought for will be gone!!
    Its not whats written or not in the Quran we dont like its because OUR freedoms are slowly being taken away by a religious people that MOVED TO OUR country.. You can’t just move country and expect to DEMAND your culture be respected. You should respect the culture to which you have moved to!! If you dont, WHY BLOODY MOVE THERE?!!!! i’ll tell you why. Muslims want to rule the world. They are slowly achieving this. Trouble is, the natives of this country are told its racist to speak out! Its not racist to want to defend Christianity, my Country from being taken over by Islam not at all.

    • luchadora41 says:

      I am so sorry to see what’s happening in the UK, and it’s starting to happen here in America, but it’s far worse there. I agree with you. You and I wouldn’t go to a foreign country and demand that they change their laws to suit us, why are they doing it to other countries? Because Islam demands to be dominant, and we’ve allowed the destruction of our own cultures in the name of multiculturalism and political correctness. I categorically reject being called a racist. Islam is not a race, it’s a religiously presented ideology that intends to destroy us.

      Prophecy is happening as we speak, and God will return soon. Jesus will rapture His church, and those who have not accepted Him as their Lord and Savior will be left behind to face the 7 year Tribulation. In the meantime, we stand up, we fight against Islam, and we win by exposing the truth of their own words. When one is knowledgeable about the Quran, Muslims tend to walk away instead of debating that which they cannot defend. We educate others, we bring the darkness into light, and we pray continually, for our people as well as for them. I imagine there are many Muslims who want to leave Islam but are too afraid to, and I keep them in prayer, especially Muslim women and children. God wins in the end, and that’s good enough for me. Thank you so much for your great comments!
