In the name of Allāh,
the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Peace and Blessings of Allāh on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms
ISLAM–CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS
A plethora of views have been expressed that:
-Islam is more of a “political system” than a Religion;
-Islam is a combination of “religion and a political-social ideology;”
-Islam is not a Religion but a political system that uses Allāh God for “global conquest;”
-Islam might be a political movement “disguised” as Religion;
-Islam is a “political ideology” hiding behind the “notion” of being a Religion;
-“Shari’ah” was a “dangerous political ideology” which some Muslims expect to impose in America;” and
-That the coming “great global struggle” will be between Islamic civilization and Western civilization.”1
This is nothing but a pile of political putrefaction! Ignorance and/or bigotry masquerading as intellect.
Islam does not “struggle” with anyone.
The reason “so many Americans see Islam as an ideology” is because they have no knowledge about Islam. And instead of learning from the Qur’an for themselves they follow the media and/or uneducated or bigoted leaders.
(Whereas the Christian Foreign Mission is in contravention of Jesus and the Biblical verses propping up this travesty are known “forgeries” in the Bible;2 and evidence was given to the Vatican that the person in the Shroud of Turin, which Christians believe to be Jesus, was NOT a “dead body”3) There are some 400,000 Christian missionaries plying the world.
Why is the Church not charged with trying to conquer the world?
And Christianity is not only an enemy to knowledge and engenders economic backwardness (teaching absurd doctrines), Christianity is Fascism. (See Appendix).
Jesus was a rabid warmonger bequeathing to the world a blazing legacy of “fire” and ‘sword,” and division and hate in the family.4
And, unlike Islam which allows religious freedom, Jesus (and as evidenced by the Church’s history) does not tolerate non-Jewish religions. As he staunchly declared that whoever is not with him is against him and commanded that enemies against his rule be slain5–which declarations may have been the conception that gave birth to the murderous Crusades, menacing the world for almost 1,000 years (1095-19186)– And is rabidly and brutally misogynistic –condemns woman to a lifetime subjugation by her husband and labels her transgressor, betrayer and defiler of man, good only as an object of sex to avoid fornication.
The only reason the Church does not now swing the blade is because she has no power in the land.
America, doubtlessly, wants to institute her brand of ‘democracy” in the world including Muslim countries. Why is America not charged with trying to conquer the world?
And American history is colored red with militarism, having overthrown the governments of some fourteen countries –Hawaii, Cuba, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Honduras, Iran, Guatemala, South Vietnam, Chile, Grenada, Panama, Afghanistan, and Iraq.7 (And “has attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments”: http://investmentwatchblog.com/since-1945-the-usa-has-attempted-to-overthrow-more-than-50-foreign-governments-most-of-which-had-been-democratically-elected/).
And you squander invaluable, irreplaceable time speculating and fearmongering against Muslims whether Islam is Religion or Ideology?
Muslims do not have to conquer lands for Allāh. The heavens and the earth already belong to Allāh. Like the Prophet Mohammad, Muslims are only to deliver the Divine message of the Qur’an, not enforce it:
- “thou (Mohammad) art not one to compel them. So remind by means of the Qur’an him who fears My warning”–(Qur’an 50:45).
- “And if thy Lord had pleased, all those who are in the earth would have believed, all of them. Wilt thou then force men till they are believers?”–(Qur’an 10:99);
- “And say: Truth is from your Lord; so let him who please believe, and let him who please disbelieve”–(Qur’an 18:29);
- “There is no compulsion in religion”–(Qur’an 2:256. Also 6:107; 9:6; 10:99-100; 17:7; 18:6, 29; 50:45; 76:3; 109:1-6).
- And obey Allāh and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away. the duty of Our Messenger is only to DELIVER (the message) clearly”–(Qur’an 64:12; also 3:19; 5:92, 99; 13:7, 40; 16:82; 24:54; 29:18; 46:35).
- “Tell those who believe to forgive those who fear not the days of Allåh that He may reward a people for what they earn. Whoever does good it is for himself, and whoever does evil, it is against himself; then to your Lord you will be brought back”–(Qur’an 45:14-15).
Had the disbelievers not militated against Muslims they would not have been vanquished and placed under subjection (which subjection was only to prevent their future uprising against Muslims):
- “Permission (to fight) is given to those on whom war is made, because they are oppressed….Those who are driven from their homes without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord is Allah”–Qur’an 22:39). This shows that Muslims were victims of persecution and war was first made on them.
- “And fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you but be not aggressive. Surely Allah loves not the aggressors”–(Qur’an 2:190). Again, this verse testifies that Muslims are only allowed a defensive war.
- “Whoever then acts aggressively against you, inflict injury on him according to the injury he has inflicted on you and keep your duty to Allah, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty”–(Qur’an 2:194).
- “And if you take your turn, then punish with the like of that with which you were afflicted. But if you show patience, it is certainly best for the patient”–(Qur’an 16:126).
- “And fight with them until there is no more persecution, and all religions are for Allah”–(Qur’an 8:39). This verse makes it clear that fighting is only to be engaged in until there is no more persecution. When the enemies desisted from their persecution of Muslims, Muslims were to stop fighting.
“The state of religious liberty which Islam aimed at is put tersely in the two opening statements –there is no more persecution and all religions are for Allah.” (M. Ali comm).
In fact, Islam is such a peaceful religion that Muslims are to make peace even in the face of possible deception by the enemy:
“And if they incline to peace, incline thou also to it…And if they intend to deceive thee, then surely Allah is sufficient for thee…” “So if they withdraw from you and fight you not and offer you peace, then Allah allows you no way against them”–(Qur’an 8:61-62; 4:90).
Muslims could not lay down their arms and “incline to peace” if Islam had required the annihilation of all non-Muslims and bent on world conquest.
That Muslims went to war with the sword in one hand and the Qur’an in the other in order to force religion at the point of the sword is a gross ignorance.
As stated, Muslims are required to teach the Qur’anic Message. They took arms on their mission as a means of defense in the event that war is forced upon them.
Let the historians tell it:
“History makes it clear, however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myths that historians have ever repeated.” 8
“THEY (Muhummed’s critics) SEE FIRE INSTEAD OF LIGHT, UGLINESS INSTEAD OF GOOD. THEY DISTORT AND PRESENT EVERY GOOD QUALITY AS A GREAT VICE. IT REFLECTS THEIR OWN DEPRAVITY…THE CRITICS ARE BLIND. THEY CANNOT SEE THAT THE ONLY ‘SWORD’ MUHAMMAD WIELDED WAS THE SWORD OF MERCY, COMPASSION, FRIENDSHIP AND FORGIVE-NESS–THE SWORD THAT CONQUERS ENEMIES AND PURIFIES THEIR HEARTS. HIS SWORD WAS SHARPER THAN THE SWORD OF STEEL.” 9
Muslims have generally been tolerant of Christians; though Christians almost invariably prove “treacherous.” Thomas W. Arnold in his book The Preaching of Islam:
“of any organised attempt to force the acceptance of Islam on the non-Muslim population, or of any systematic persecution intended to stamp out the Christian religion, we hear nothing. Had the caliphs chosen to adopt either course of action, they might have swept way Christianity as easily as Ferdinand and Isabella drove Islam out of Spain, or Louis XIV made Protestantism penal in France, or the Jews were kept out of England for 350 years. The Eastern Churches in Asia were entirely cut off from communion with the rest of Christendom, throughout which no one would have been found to lift a finger on their behalf, as heretical communions. So that the very survival of these Churches to the present day is a strong proof of the generally tolerant attitude of the Muhammadan governments towards them.” (p. 80).
Mr. Arnold also noted what may very well be a timeless observation:
“Many of the persecutions of the Christians in Muslim countries can be traced either to distrust of their loyalty, excited by the intrigues and interference of Christian foreigners and the enemies of Islam, or to the bad feeling stirred up by the treacherous or brutal behaviour of the latter towards the Musalmans.” (p. 77).
Another magnificent demonstration of Islamic “tolerance” is that given by the Caliph ‘Umar upon his conquer of Jerusalem, as noted by Muhammad Ali. When the Christian Patriarch suggested that ‘Umar should offer his prayers –the time being due– at the church of the Resurrection, the honorable Caliph refused; “saying his prayers neither there nor in the famous church of Constantine, where prayer carpets had already been spread out.” Explaining that “Should we say our prayers here,” he observed, “Muslims might some day claim the right to erect a mosque in this place.””10
What vision and magnanimity. There is none that equals Islam’s majestic “tolerance.”
Is Islam a Religion, political system or Ideology?
While in Islam there is no separation of Masajid (Mosque) from State. There is no politics in Islam.
Politic is defined as “characterized by shrewdness;” “sagacious in promoting a policy;” “shrewdly tactful.” 11
While Islam requires wisdom and farsightedness (sagacity) there is no craftiness (shrewdness) in Islam.
Whereas in “politics” the end is justified by any means; in Islam the end is justified only by righteous means:
“O you who believe, keep your duty to Allah and speak straight words”–(Qur’an 33:70);
“And when you speak, be just, though it be (against) a relative”–(Qur’an 6:152).
“And mix not up truth with falsehood, nor hide the truth while you know”–(Qur’an 2:42).
Ideology is defined as: “1: Visionary theorizing, 2 a: a systematic body of concepts esp. about human life or culture b: a manner or the content of thinking characteristic of an individual, group, or culture, c: the integrated assertions, theories, and aims that constitute a sociopolitical program.” 12
None of which applies to Islam.
The Qur’an is not the “theory or thinking” or the “assertions, theories, and aims” of any “individual, group, or culture.”
The Qur’an is Divine Revelation; Islam is the complete way to live –the ultimate blueprint for our moral, social, intellectual and spiritual upliftment:
“This day have I (Allāh God) Perfected for you your RELIGION And completed My favor to you And chosen for you ISLAM as a RELIGION”-(Qur’an 5:3).
Why then the cow-dance as to whether Islam is Religion or ideology?
Except for America’s indulgence in Alcohol & Gambling, adultery, prostitution (dead weights of society which perhaps millions of Americans scorn) and homosexuality which Islam does not approve and strives against (though no one has the right to “peep” into the house of another).
- allows freedom of religion–(Qur’an 2:256; 6:105-109; 9:107-108; 10:88-100; 18:29; 42:15; 50:45; 76:3; 109:1-6);
- gives freedom of movement, thought, and expression [though freedom of expression even in modern advanced societies would seem to have its limit when it advocates anarchy, and when it proves slanderous]–(4:140; 6:68, 108; 29:52);
- allows the pursuit of knowledge, and the acquisition of wealth and property–(2:274-275, 276-282; 22:65; 35:12; 45:12-13; 53:48; 62:10);
- requires choosing only those worthy of power and to exercise justice–(4:58);
- requires government by consultation/ counsel–(3:158; 4:58; 42:38.
- to deal justly with men–(2:279, 5:8);
- not to rob men of their dues–(26:183);
- to give justice even if it be against one’s self or parents or kins or whether he be poor or rich–(4:135; 4:58; 5:8),
- feeding of the needy and the poor, to free the captives, to help those in debt, to care for the orphans, the wayfarer, and to free the slaves–(9:60, 2:177),
- not to act corruptly in the earth or make mischief–(26:183);
- not to be transgressors, nor aid in sin and aggression–(2:190; 5:2);
- to restrain anger and forgive (3:133),
- to return evil with better (23:96);
- to be merciful and forgiving (3:133);
- instead of retaliation reconcile, be patient and forgive (42:39-43; 24: 22; 3:133);
- to fight only as long as there is persecution (2:193),
- to make peace when the enemy desires (4:90; 8:61);
- to fight on behalf of the oppressed–(4:75);
Islam/Shari’ah liberated woman and gives her rights alongside man from birth all the way to Jannah/Heaven:
- liberated woman–(2:187; 4:19-22);
- exalts her–(4:1; 9:71-72);
- gives her equality with man in financial, property, moral and spiritual matters–(4:32, 7-10, 176-177; 3:195; 33:35; 4:124; 16:97; 43:70);
- honors her–(4:1);
- made her a garment to man and he is her garment–(2:187);
- given her rights similar to those against her–(2:228);
- made her a protector of man as he is her protector–(9:71);
- established her as a source of peace, comfort, love and compassion –(7:189; 30: 21. See Islam-wife beating; Woman’s inheritance-half of man’s; Woman’s testimony-half of man’s).
Where is the evil in Islam?
Which of these teachings contradict with American “values”?
Where is Islam’s clash of civilizations?
Clearly, for national and international peace and justice every country needs to institute Shari’ah.
There is no system more equitable and just than Islam/Shari’ah.
Only the occupier/usurper, the oppressor, the aggressor/transgressor, the exploiter, the bigots and those dedicated to falsehood are terrified of Islam/Shari’ah.
Should man follow Islam/Shari’ah man would find his Utopia!
Allāh God did not reveal the Qur’an/Islam to “clash” with “Western civilization.”
Allāh God revealed the Qur’an/Islam to enhance World civilizations.
We can see what America’s (and Russia’s) drive for world conquest/domination has given us. (Just take a cruise on the Internet).
Since the 1940’s America “has attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments”:
Jesus came to uphold the law of the Old Testament so much so that heaven and earth shall pass, as he declared, but not one dot shall pass till they all be fulfilled: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”–(Matthew 5:17-18).
Thus, if Jesus/Christianity was lording America or Europe or any place else:
Israelites guilty of apostasy, blasphemy, rude to parents, adultery, and homosexuality, and witchcraft etc; Jesus would have them killed:
- (Apostasy): Those who “secretly” entice another to follow an unknown God are to be stoned to death:
“And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt….If thy brother…entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers…thou shalt surely kill him”–(Deut; 13:5-16).
“If there be found among you…man or woman…. And hath gone and served other gods, and worshiped them, either the sun or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded…..Then thou shalt bring forth that man or that woman …and shalt stone them with stones, till they die”–(Deut; 17:2-5).
- A “stubborn and rebellious son” is to be stoned to death–(Deut. 21:18-21).
- (Honor killings): Married damsel without the “token of virginity” is to be stoned to death: “But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you”–(Deut. 22:20-21 Notably, the man with whom she played the “whore” is not stoned).
- A virginal damsel who lies with a man other than her “betrothed,” both are to be stoned to death–(Deut. 22:23-24).
- A witch is to be put to death–(Exodus 22:18).
- Who curses his father or mother is to be put to death–(Lev. 20:9).
- Punishment for adultery is death–(Lev. 20:10-12; Deut. 22:22).
- Homosexuals are to be put to death–(Lev. 20:13).
- A man who takes a “wife and her mother,” both shall be burnt with fire–(Lev. 20:14).
- Who commits bestiality is to be put to death–(Lev. 20:15-16).
- (Blasphemy): “And the Israelitish woman’s son blasphemed the name of the Lord, and cursed….And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying…let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.…And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death”–(Lev. 24:11-16, 23).
If Jesus/Christianity was lording America or Europe or any place else:
-men would be able to commit incest with their daughters, as Lot–(Gen. 20:11-12; Gen. 19:30-37);
-slavery will be revived–(Lev. 25:44);
-children will be punished for their parents “whoredoms”–(Num. 14:33-34. Also Rev. 2:20-23);
-decapitation will be allowed: “And the Lord said unto Moses, take ALL THE HEADS of the people and HANG THEM UP before the Lord against the sun”–(Num. 25:4);
-disbelievers will be killed–(Deut. 13:12-16);
-the wife who tried to defend her husband by grabbing the testicles of her husband’s opponent will lose her hand–(Deut. 25:11-12);
-cannibalism will be legal:
“And he (the enemy of the Israelites) shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.
And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters…..
So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave: So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege…..
The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates”–(Deuteronomy 28:52-57. 2 Kings 6:24-29);
“And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king….And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son”–(2 Kings 6:24-29);
-It would be legal to terrorize, slay, poison and feed worshippers of false gods to beasts:
“They (Jeshurun and his children) have moved me (God) to jealousy with that which is not God…I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them…I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs”–(Deut. 32: 15-25);
-it will be legal to mutilate enemies: (The Israelites asked God “Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them” to occupy their land)
“And the Lord said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand…and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men…and they pursued after him (Adonibezek), and caught him and CUT OFF HIS THUMBS and his GREAT TOES. And Adonibezek said, THREE SCORE AND TEN kings, having their THUMBS and their GREAT TOES CUT OFF”–(Judges 1:1-7. Islam only allows a defensive fighting and certainly not to “go up” and kill people to occupy their lands);
-it would be legal to slay even the “infant and suckling” in war: “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel…..Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass”–(1 Samuel 15:2-3);
-it would be legal to take men’s wives and give them in adultery because of their husband’s infidelity: “….because thou (David) hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun”–(2 Samuel 12:7-11);
-as Solomon had “seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines” there will be unbridled polygamy and concubinage–(1 Kings 11:3);
-Christians would be allowed to feed mischievous children to bears:
“And he (Elisha) went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them”–(2 Kings 2:22-24);
-it would be happiness to mutilate “little ones” and ravish the wives of others:
“Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones”–(Psalm 137:9)
Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished”–(Isaiah 13:16);
-it would be legal to kill fetus during war:
“Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.
Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children”–(Isaiah 13:15-18);
“Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up”–(Hosea 13:16).
Bear in mind, as Jesus is said to be God, this is all Jesus’ doing.
-Woman would be seen and not heard and her daughter bondaged–(Genesis 3:16; Exodus 21:7; Ephesians 5:22-23, 33);
-wives will have to learn in silence and subjection, and to not “usurp authority over the man”–(1 Timothy 2:11-12);
-women and children will be beaten with “all gravity” to bring them into obedience and into silence and subjection–(Prov. 13:24; 19:18; 23:13-14. 1 Timothy 3:4; Hebrews 12:6-8. And without doubt every “Christian” husband wants to deliver his stubborn and rebellious wife’s “soul from hell”);
-daughters who commit “whoredom” will be burned–(Genesis 38:24; Leviticus 21:9);
-blasphemers, apostates, married damsel without the “token of virginity,” and the virginal damsel who lies with a man other than her “betrothed,” stubborn and rebellious sons, and the adulteress would all be stoned to death–(Leviticus 24:11-16, 23; Deuteronomy 13:5-16;17:2-5; 22:20-21; 22:23-24; 21:18-21; John 8:3-5 see Jesus and the adulteress);
-the witch, one who curses his father or mother, the adulterer, homosexuals, and the man who commits bestiality would be put to death–(Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 20:9; 10-12; Deuteronomy 22:22; Leviticus 20:13; 15-16);
-a man who takes a “wife and her mother” both would be torched–(Leviticus 20:14);
–(as only Christians honor Christ as God/son of God) Christians are to bondage their fellow Christians–Ephesians 6:5; Colossians 3:22);
-Christians would agree with their adversaries which would include agreeing with all kinds of injustices–(Matthew 5:25; perhaps this is what the Church and Christian Europe were doing when the Nazis were holocausting Jews);
-those who do not share the Christians’ views would be labeled as being “against” them, and enemies opposed to rule would be slaughtered–(Matthew 12:30; Luke 19:27; the Crusades will now be rolling out of America to secure Jerusalem for Christ’s landing; we might even get an American “Hitler” to avenge the killing of the Christian’s God/son of God);
-men and women would have to remain in their marriage regardless of how loveless and miserable or risk being guilty of “adultery;” and the divorced woman would have to wilt her (youthful and beautiful) self in single-hood or her new husband will be charged with “adultery”–(Matthew 5:32; Luke 16:18);
-woman would be reduced as an object for sex, good only “to avoid fornication”–(1 Corinthians 7:1-2); viewed as inferior to man–(1 Corinthians 11:7-9); as the transgressor and betrayer of man–(1 Timothy 2:14; Genesis 3:4-12; Ezekiel 16:44); as “defiler” of man–(Revelation 7:4-8; 14:3-4) (for Biblical misogyny see Christianity-women);
-as no one would be allowed to shovel treasures into earthly storehouses and would have to depend on God as he sends to the birds and flowers and thus no need for knowledge America will plummet like a lead-ball from the pinnacle of progress into the black-hole of backwardness–(Matthew 6:19, 25-26);
-the Geneva convention on war would have to be re-written, for it would be legal to slay all the soldiers of war as well as slay all the male and matron women and take the virgin girls as sex slaves (and as Christians say Jesus is God this is what Jesus commanded):
“And they warred against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses….And Moses said unto them…Now therefore kill every MALE among the LITTLE ONES (of the captives), and kill EVERY WOMAN who hath known man by lying with him, but ALL THE WOMEN CHILDREN, that have not known a man by lying with him (virgin girls) KEEP ALIVE FOR YOURSELVES (for the Israelites to know who was virgin they would have had to literally “finger” these little girls; this is what the Christian God, Jesus, requires)….and of WOMEN that had not known man by lying with him (virgin girls), were 32,000 (of which half, 16,000, went to the soldiers)….EVERYONE KEPT HIS BOOTY FOR HIMSELF”–(Numbers 31:1-53). (See Christianity -sex slaves & prepubescent girls).
Evidently. It is Christianity that clashes with “Western Civilization” as well as with World Civilizations.
(Non-Christians are to go down on their hands and knees and forehead and thank Allāh God that America and nowhere else is governed by Jesus/Christianity. They would have to high-tail it out of America or kiss the useless and unGodly crucifix or have their heads lopped off, or in the case of Jews in 1400’s Vienna face the furnace:
In Vienna, “hundreds of Jews were burned alive in 1421 for refusing to convert to Christianity,” Toronto Star, Sat; Sept; 8, 2007; p. AA2; Pontiff shows…by Tracy Wilkinson).
If Islam/Mohammad (not to be confused with Muslims though Muslims are to reflect the teachings of Islam) was lording America (or any place)
–women and men would be observing a dress code (which probably all disciplined organizations have) –women, the Hijab/head covering and jalaba and men, (the minimum) the area between, and including, the navel and the knees and half of the chest;
–women will be given all the rights due to her and leave her nothing for which to strive;
-there would be limited polygamy to alleviate female preponderancy;
-non-Muslims would be governed by the laws of their scripture (to an extent);
-there would be no public Alcohol (one does not need intoxicants to have a good time; in fact intoxicants do not give a “good time”: the best of times are had in sobriety);
-there will be no public Gambling; no pornography; no prostitution and thus no pimping; (Intoxicants, gambling, pornography and prostitution are dead weights of society that even non-Muslima abhor).
-thieves (depending on the reason for theft and cost of item) will lose their hands (law-abiding citizens will be much safer and secure, and wouldn’t need to imprison themselves in gated communities) (see Islam-amputation, dismemberment).
-drug-lords and pushers and rapists and other “dead-weight” of society who strive to make mischief in the land and prey on the vulnerable of society run the risk of getting the maximum sentence of crucifixion;
-men will NOT be saddled with alimony payments for his ex-wife’s unmarried life;
-there will be one law for the commoner as well as for the elite (there will be no diplomatic immunity);
-adulterers and fornicators will be publicly flogged (there is no death for adultery, apostasy and blasphemy, and no honor killing in Islam. See Islam-Shari’ah). And no death for homosexuality.
Unlike the Christians’ Jesus who would have man in regress and dependency:
-Mohammad, through the Blessed Qur’an brought the world to our feet and eternity to our arms, and gave us to drink of the fountain of knowledge and truth and wisdom and reason, of peace and love and hope and mercy and forgiveness, and he sent man soaring from the belly of ignorance and backwardness into the mouth of quest and progress.
-Mohammad liberated man from the irrationality of polytheism, the futility and degradation of idolatry, the humiliation of superstition, the phantasm of paganism –of Gods of the womb and dying Gods and sons of God–and took God from the bosom of nationalism and sat Him aloft on the Mount of Universalism; rescues the orphan, ennobles the slave, extricated woman from the grave of infanticide and unchained her from the shackles of marital chatteldom and enthrones her alongside man from the cradle to paradise; instills in man morality, sobriety, and chastity, and impels him to personal, social, intellectual, and spiritual excellence.
-Mohammad embraced all the prophets of all the nations and removed the cloak of “sinfulness” hurled upon them.
-Mohammad not only preached forgiveness but he forgave his most horrid enemies.
-Mohammad not only preached love of enemies and loved his enemies, but also made them beneficiaries in his kingdom.
-Mohammad not only preached the giving of charity and gave charity, but also bought slaves their freedom, and assigned a portion of the States’ funds for the poor.
-Mohammad “disabused our minds”: he made us too cultured to deliver our souls into the hands of gods born of the womb –helpless, defenseless gods; gods who themselves sought nourishment and protection– and he hung the millstone of responsibility for our actions snugly around our own necks –that there is no “scapegoat” on which to cruise on into heaven: every person must pave his own pathway into Paradise.
–Mohammad freed us from stone-worship, star-worship, sun-worship, spirit-worship, nature-worship, human-worship, and sat us high on the pinnacle of pure worship (that the only presence greater than ourselves is God; the worship) of the One True God –Who has no partner or parent, nor son or daughter; Who was not in the womb of a woman, Who was not born, nor ate, slept, drank, nor answered the calls of nature, nor died or was killed– the God Who is Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, the God Who is the Ultimate in Purity and Perfection and Who never dies–Allāh!
Only the occupier/usurper, the oppressor, the exploiter, the transgressor, the bigots, and those dedicated to falsehood are terrified of Islam.

- Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din points out in his book Open Letters To The Bishops of Salisbury & London, (pp. 31-32): “The concluding eleven verses of St. Mark-(16:9-20) and the well-known verse of St. Matthew-(28:19), speaking of the Son and the Father and the Holy Ghost, are forgeries, an admitted addition to the ancient MSS (manuscripts). The fact was discovered by the first translator of the Bible into English and they made a marginal note in their version of the Bible which continued for some time. But we do not find the said note in any of the copies now published by the said society (Foreign Mission Society). Is it fair and honest to keep others in darkness as to the true value of the contents of the Bible?” (For full text please see Bible corrupt & obsolete).
- “There is a German Research Convent about the Holy Shroud in Stuttgart, W. Germany, and Kurt Berna is the Catholic author and Secretary, in charge of Business of the German Convent.”
(M.A. Faruqui notes that after receiving permission from the Vatican to carry out tests on photographs of the Shroud of Turin) the committee’s conclusion about the body that was in the Shroud was submitted to the Vatican).
“It has been proved beyond any doubt that Jesus Christ, after the crucifixion and after the removal of the crown of thorns from his head, had been laid in this Shroud.
According to the existing proofs it is further established that the body of the crucified person at that time was placed in this shroud and it remained there for some time. In the medical sense it is proved that it was not a dead body, because at that time a free movement of the heart was traceable. The existence of the flowing of blood, its position and its nature which is found on the Holy Shroud furnishes a clear scientific and medical proof that the so-called execution was legally not complete.
According to the present discovery the present as well as the past teachings of Christianity are incorrect.” (Just as Allāh revealed, that Christ was not killed–Qur’an 4:157). (For full text see Jesus-inherited sin to ascension, chapter on Crucifixion).
- Contrary to Christian’s claim that Jesus brought/sent joy, peace, and love to the world; Jesus Christ brought/sent misery, strife, hate and division to the world. In Jesus’ own words, as the Gospels say:
-“I am come to send FIRE on the earth”–(Luke 12:49).
-Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth, Nay; but rather DIVISION: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; and the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law”–(Luke 12:51-53).
-“For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me”–(Matthew 10:35-37).
-“Think NOT that I am come to send peace on earth: I came NOT to send peace, but a SWORD”–(Matthew 10:34).
-“If any man come to me, and HATE NOT his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple”–(Luke 14:26).
- “He that is not with me is against me” (and a person can be neutral)–(Matthew 12:30). “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me” (though the enemies might not militate against him)–(Luke 19:27).
If these sayings of Jesus in Matthew 12:30 and Luke 19:27 were to be implemented more than five billion people of the world that do not accept Jesus as Divine and vicarious atoner, as Christians say he was, would be slaughtered.
- The first Crusade was launched by Pope Urban II in 1095. The last was carried out in 1918 (?) by Lord Allenby and the Allies at their conquest of Jerusalem. Muhammad Husayn Haykal notes in his book The Life of Muhammad:
“Lord Allenby, representing the allied forces of England, France, Italy, Rumania, and America, stopped in Jerusalem in 1918 after his conquest of that city toward the end of the first World War and said: “Today the Crusades have come to an end.”” (p. 213.
