In the Name of Allāh
The Beneficent, The Merciful.
Peace and blessings 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.
Whereas the critics of Islam try to find fault with Islam;
the critics cannot prove, and can never prove, a religion superior to Islam. Because Islam is superior to all other religions
“Now They Call Me Infidel”
“Cruel And Usual Punishment”
“And if you are in doubt as to that which
We have revealed to Our servant,
then produce a chapter like it
and call on your helpers besides Allāh
if you are truthful. But if you do (it) not
— and you can never do (it) —
then be on your guard against the fire
whose fuel is men and stones;
it is prepared for the disbelievers”
“The claim of the Qur’an, that it would baffle human efforts to produce its equal, is based on absolute truth. A Book completed in twenty-three years, dealing with every aspect of human life, and yet remaining free from any kind of discrepancy or even a slight variation, is in itself a miracle.” (Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, Introduction to the study of the Holy Qur’an, p.47).
“They desire to put out the light of Allāh
with their mouths, and Allāh will allow
nothing save the perfection of His light,
though the disbelievers are averse.
He (Allāh) it is Who sent His Messenger
(Mohammad) with guidance and the Religion
of Truth, that He may cause it to prevail
over all religions, though the polytheists
“Say: If you love Allāh, follow me:
Allāh will love you, and forgive you your sins.
And Allāh is Forgiving, Merciful.”
“And He (Allāh) is the Forgiving,
(Qur’an 3:30; 85:14)
Allāh loves us. Allah wants to guide us. Allāh wants us to be pure. Allāh wants us to have a life in Paradise. Allāh invites us in loving, compassionate terms to forgive us our sins; as he revealed to the Prophet Mohammad to convey to us: “Say, O My servants who have sinned against their souls, despair not of the mercy of Allāh; surely Allāh forgives all sins. Verily, He is Most Forgiving, Ever Merciful”–(Qur’an 39:53). Such is the expanse of Allāh’s mercy
(Please note: when checking Qur’anic references please check a few verses before or after the ones listed, as the numbering may vary among translators. I have mostly used Muhammad Ali and Yusuf Ali’s translations. This presentation is not to denigrate Jesus; it is only a comment on the Gospels and on Christian’s teachings and claims. What is to borne in mind is that the Gospels are four books “according to” Matthew, Mark, Luke and John –not “according to” Jesus or God– and are the “King James Version” –not Jesus’ or God’s “Version.” As Maurice Bucaille states: “The abundance of literature concerning Jesus led the Church to make certain excisions while the latter was in the process of becoming organized. Perhaps a hundred Gospels were suppressed. Only four were retained and put on the official list of neo-Testament writings making up what is called ‘Canon’.” For a history of the New Testament and the Old Testament read Maurice Bucaille’s The Bible, The Qur’an, And Science. The Bible itself conveys that it has been falsified; God revealed to the prophet Jeremiah to convey to the people:“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie”–Jeremiah 8:8. New American Standard Bible, 1985 edition).
Comment on Nonie Darwish’s work is divided into four parts (1) 1. Nonie Darwish-criticisms (2) 2. Nonie Darwish-Overview (3) 3. Nonie Darwish-Now They Call Me Infidel(4) 4. Nonie Darwish-Cruel And Usual Punishment.
“People of intelligence and integrity impart wisdom and truth; the vain and liar depend on ignorance and bigotry for audience” –Sapphire Rose.
Nonie Darwish is an Egyptian –an apostate from Islam to Christianity– who has written two books, Now They Call Me Infidel and Cruel And Usual Punishment: The terrifying global implications of Islamic Law, in which she tries to tell Muslims the “truth” about our religion –Islam.
Like other critics of Islam, Nonie Darwish is vast on text and void of substance. As her writings testify, Nonie Darwish knows nothing about Islam and even less about Christianity. In fact, after the Tower of Babel–(Gen. 11:1-9) Christianity –that God has a son; that God put Adam’s/Eve’s sin onto all men then put the sins of all men onto one man (attributing injustice to God); and that God sent one man to be killed for the sins of others (making God complicit in murder)– is one of the three biggest crocks ever peddled under the name of God and religion. (The other two biggest crocks are that God has a “chosen people” to the exclusion of others and that “God gave us this land” as justification to dispossess the Palestinians of their homes, lands and country; U.S. president Harry Truman must be “God” of the Jews, and God must have engaged the White House to use diplomatic thuggery at the U.N. –exerting “pressure” and “coercion and duress” on non-Muslim nations– as his methods to give Jews Palestine).
Nonie Darwish judges Islam by the un-Islamic actions of the Muslims in her society. While a person’s conduct is to reflect the precepts of his religion, would Nonie Darwish judge Jesus by the Christian priests sodomizing young boys? Or would she accept blame if she teaches her children to be “law abiding” but they engage in criminality?
Nonie Darwish confuses Shari’ah –Islamic law which is derived from the Qur’an and Hadith (teachings of the Prophet Mohammad)– with the verdicts of the jurists (which verdicts may not be reflective of the Qur’an, such as stoning to death).
Nonie Darwish uses the opinions of Muslim commentators –opinions that have no foundation in the Qur’an and Hadith– to advance her arguments that there are “cruel and usual punishment” in Islam. She also tries to show that there are contradictions in the Qur’an/Shari’ah. While there are punishments for certain transgressions in Islam (and in all religions) there is no “cruel” punishment in Islam. There is “cruel” punishment in Christianity –stoning to death the adulteress and damsels without the “tokens of virginity;” killing apostates and blasphemers and homosexuals. There are no contradictions in the Qur’an; only a lack of meditating on its verses: “Will they not then meditate on the Qur’an? And if it were from any other than Allāh, they would have found in it many a discrepancy”–(Qur’an 4:82).
Nonie Darwish confuses Secularism with Christianity; attributing Western material progress to Judeo-Christian teachings. And there is nothing in the Bible to foster material growth. But in fact, the Biblical teaching engenders stagnation and backwardness.
Nonie Darwish claims that the Qur’an “absolves a man from using a slave girl for prostitution,”/Prostitution (a typical example of her lack of understanding what she reads); that the Muslim woman’s mahr/dowry is payment in exchange for sex, (more lunacy); that Shari’ah/polygamy fosters distrust between spouses and is harmful to family life. (Wonder what adultery does. And the Bible allows adultery –Solomon and his son, Rehoboam, had more then 350 concubines; David dallied with Bathsheba, wife of Uriah; Judah –the Christian’s God and son of God’s grandfather– played hide-and-seek with his daughter-in-law, Tamar; Jacob built tribes with his wives’ handmaids,Bilhah and Zilpah; Lot built two tribes with his two daughters; and Israelite soldiers received Prepubescent virgin girls as war booty). (These dealt with later).
Nonie Darwish tries to shame and ridicule Muslim women into discarding their religious garment and even to abandon Islam, and Muslim men to abandon Shari’ah –the supreme Divine system– and Jihad –the Divine institution to strive in the cause of justice. And only the occupier and the usurper and the oppressor and the transgressors (and their supporters) are terrified of Jihad.
Nonie Darwish also dabbles in politics.
Nonie Darwish’s presentation is mostly of emotion, infatuation and partisan rather than of reason, research and reality. Only the sense of duty to grasp the expanse of her ignorance of Islam (and of Christianity) and her lack of rationality and her blind patriotism would see the informed reader to the end of her books.
Muslims are not to be overwhelmed and dazzled by glossy literature. There is nothing in Islam to be ashamed of. There is nothing in Islam to apologize for. Allāh the ultimate in Purity and Justice would not enjoin vulgarity and lewdness and injustice; He would not command the killing of non-Muslims for their beliefs considering that He gives man freedom of choice and declares that all religions are for Him; nor would Allāh sanctions Muslims despoiling people of their lands, property and women. Nor would Allāh confer the title of “best exemplar” onto a man who is uncouth, foul-mouthed, unjust and a libertine. Such ascriptions to Allah and the Prophet Mohammad could only emanate from bigoted or unthinking minds. Islam does not need apologists! Islam does not need defenders! Islam only needs to be explained. Islam which calls man through wisdom, argument and example does not seek to silence voices: Islam seeks to enhance mentality.
It was said to me that there is an Arab TV channel that features Christians posing as Muslim-converts to Christianity to entice Muslims to convert to Christianity. I have also heard of Christians giving money to a poor Muslim [improving his condition] to convert, so as to influence other Muslims in his area to convert to Christianity. And aforetime there was what was known as “rice” Christians –using food as weapon to convert the hungry to Christianity. And many years ago, during an in-house presentation, it was stated that in India Christians are giving apples to poor children and telling them that Jesus sent it. What a maroon! Jesus could not find figs for himself on earth to eat and he is sending apples from heaven to others –this Christian’s God/son of God was not only ignorant of the season for figs; he was so disappointed and despondent at his lack of fore-knowledge that fig was not in season and so frustrated at his powerlessness to produce fruit he cursed the helpless and blameless fig tree to death–(Mark 11:11-14, 20-21. Please note: this is the Christians’ Jesus; for the Muslims’ Jesus read the Qur’an). And Ahmed Deedat has shown in his booklet Is the Bible God’s Word? that whereas the word “VIRGIN” in Isaiah 7:14 has been replaced with the phrase “a young woman” in the RSV Bible; the word “BEGOTTEN” of “begotten son” of John 3:16, has been “excised;” the verse of 1-John 5:7 which speaks of the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost [the trinity] “has also been scrapped from the RSV” Bible; and the verses of Mark 16:19 and Luke 24:51 which refer to the Ascension of Jesus were “expunged” but later “restored to the text,” Deedat notes that while these terms have been “unceremoniously excised” from English Bibles, they are retained in the Bible’s nearly 1500 other non-English languages. Such is Christian’s desperation and deception to snare the innocent natives into eating the “body” and drinking the mythical “blood” of Jesus Christ (spiritual cannibalism). This must be the lowest depths of spiritual depravity. But this is hardly surprising. People who would adulterate the Book of God –the very God from Whom they seek their daily bread, and on Whose “right hand” they want to sit– would probably do anything else. And considering that Paul who not only forged his own “gospel” but as he confessed caught people through “lie,” “crafty”ness, and “guile,” Christians seem to be imitating Paul in their mission of propagating falsehood and blasphemy
As noted above, Ahmed Deedat points out that the Ascension of Jesus was expunged but restored to the next. Not only did Jesus not give “all truth” (leaving it to the Comforter, Mohammad, to give “all truth”–John 14:16; 16:13), God did not send Jesus to the Black and the White and the Brown and the Yellow and the Red. God sent Jesus to the JEWS only; as Jesus himself declared:
-“I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel”–(Matt. 15:24);
-“Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel”–(Matt. 10:5-6);
-“I pray for them (JEWS): I pray NOT for the world”–(John 17:9);
-“For the Son of man is come to seek and save that (JEWS) which was lost” (of which some ten of these Jewish tribes were said to be in Kashmir; Jesus is noted to have traveled to India)1–(Luke 19:10; Matt.18:11).
And he (Jesus) considered non-Jews (which includes Nonie Darwish) “dogs” and “swine”: “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine”–(Matt. 7:6; 15:26); and he told the Samaritan woman: “Ye worship ye know not what: we (Jews) know what we worship: for salvation is of the JEWS”–(John 4:21).
In fact, Jesus’ mission was so wholly and solely to the Israelites that he spoke in parables so the non-Jews would not understand and be saved: after relating the parable of the sower to the people Jesus said to them: “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear;” and, afterwards, when he (Jesus) was alone with the Israelites they asked him about the meaning of the parable: “And he said unto them, Unto you (who have God) it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them (non-Jews) that are without (God), all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and NOT perceive; and hearing they may hear, and NOT understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them”–(Mark 4:9-12) –the Good News Bible put it even more clearly: “You have been given the secret of the Kingdom of God,” Jesus answered. “But the others, who are on the outside, hear all things by means of parables, so that, ‘They may look and look, yet NOT see; they may listen and listen, yet NOT understand. For if they did, they would turn to God, and he would forgive them.’” In other words though the non-Jews (who may be sincere seekers of God) have the faculties of sight and hearing and can see and hear, he (Jesus) spoke in parables so that they would not understand his words because he did not want them to accept God and have their sins forgiven.
What a ghastly horribly sickening thing to do. (As prophet, Jesus could not turn away anyone; this is why he indulged non-Jews; but he could avoid them, which he did, as is evident from his admonition to his disciples not to preach to non-Jews, and from his speaking in parables so that they would not understand). This statement by Jesus also proves that Jesus did NOT come to save sinners. The claim that after his make-believe resurrection Jesus ordered that the Gospel be preached to the world, Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, in response to Christian “mis-statements” on Islam, notes in his Open Letters to the Bishops of Salisbury & London (1926):
“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? The reader must know that the concluding portion of St. Mark and the verse in St. Matthew are spurious and a subsequent addition. But I am afraid the Foreign Mission would not allow the correction. It would tell against their very Mission, if they eliminate the verse from St. Matthew; they lose the only pillar that supports the structure of the Trinity. No other verse in the whole Scripture speaks of it. The said eleven verses of St. Mark are the only justification for the existence of the Foreign Mission. You, as well as I, know, my Lord, that the call to Jesus came solely and wholly from Judaism. He came only to gather the scattered sheep and would not give the children’s bread to the dogs, the world beyond the Israelites. The Foreign Mission is a mere trespass on lands forbidden by the Master. It transcends the limit marked by Jesus. Throughout his life the Gentiles and others did not concern him: they were the swine. Then came the make-believe Resurrection, and they say the Master changed his mind as to his mission and ordered it to be carried to the four corners of the world (indicating that he was unsure of his mission), but this all depends upon the questionable verses of St. Mark, and hence their retention in the Bible. St. Matthew is no authority on this point. The word “nations” there is a mistranslation and a wrong substitute for “the tribes”–the rest of the Jewish tribes scattered all over the world. This being the case, the Mission cannot afford to eliminate the verses from their version, nor will they put marginal notes, as did the old versions, to show the true nature of the verses.2 It would weaken the cause and show the futility of their status, since in carrying on evangelical work in the non-Christian world (in the non-Jewish world, the Bible/Christ is only for Jews)3 they are acting against the express admonition of the Master. It may that reasons other than religion are at the back of it all, and goading their activities, but decency, if not religion, assuredly demands the publishing of things as they are.”(pp.31-32). (Such is Christian’s deception and desperation to snare the unschooled and the unthinking into drinking the mythical blood and eating the body of Jesus Christ (spiritual cannibalism). Utterly disgraceful and unGodly! It is doubtful that a man of God would make forgeries in a Book of God, and even yet proclaim it to be Book of God. Christians adulterate their Word of God and then have the arrogance and the audacity to turn around and ask this very God to give them their daily bread. In fact, they not only turn around and ask God to give them their daily bread, they even pray to him to have Muslims (and others) follow them in their wickedness and blasphemy. Sadly, some Muslims do apostatize and follow them. And Only the peripheral Muslim and the unthinking would embrace the useless and unGodly crucifix. (The Bible is corrupt & obsolete).
It is amusing that whereas Jesus taught the worship of God, prayed to God, and in his blackest despair called on God from the cross: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Christians are praying to, worshipping, and calling on Jesus. When Muslims that are not much learned are confronted by the “experts” on Islam trying to influence us with their “truths” Muslims can do either or both of these:  say to them “La elaha ill-Allāh Mohammadur Rasul-Allāh” [There is no God but Allāh, Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh] this is the Divine truth, and ignore them.  Ask the Christians to show you where in the Bible God or Jesus –not Paul, Paul was not God or Jesus, Paul was a self-admitted liar who snared people into the pagan “son of God” doctrine through “guile” and “crafty[ness]”– says that mankind inherited sin from Adam/Eve; that God sent Jesus to be killed for sins of others [and John 3:16 is not about crucifixion but miracles, read from verse one]; and that God incarnated Himself as Jesus. When they can show you these they can come back and talk to you. They will never be able to come back because there are no such doctrines from God or Jesus. To say that God put Adam/Eve’s sin onto all people is to attribute injustice to God, but God is Just–[Deut. 32:4; Job 34:10]. To say that God sent Jesus to be killed for the sins of others is make God complicit in murder, but God is most gracious, merciful and desires mercy and not sacrifice,–[Ex. 34:6; Jonah 4:2; Hosea 6:6; Matt. 9:13]; and He decrees that every man shall die for his own sin: “The father shall NOT die for the children, NEITHER shall the children die for the fathers, but EVERY MAN SHALL DIE FOR HIS OWN SIN”–(Deut; 24:16; Ezek; 18:20; 2 Chron. 25:4).
To say that God incarnated Himself as Jesus (or any other) is to say that God culled Himself as a sperm (and whose?); entered the womb of a woman He created; emerged from her vagina; sucked her “paps;” and got Himself “circumcised” which is blasphemy. And for what purpose? As noted, God, being merciful and just, does not need to have Himself (or another killed) in order to forgive sins. If God came as man to be an example for man then not only was He a tribal “God” but this Christian’s “God” was an abject failure. For the Jews not only rejected Him but wanted to kill him (though as shown further on Jesus was not killed/ crucified). Moreover, only a man can serve as an example for man: a baboon is a no matter what cosmetic surgery and silk suit and turban you wrap on him; his brain and mentality is still baboon! Will always be baboon! As Allāh instructs the Prophet Mohammad: “Say: Had there been in the earth angels walking about secure, We would have sent down to them from heaven an angel as messenger”–(Qur’an 17:95). As we on earth are not angels but men then logically only man can be a messenger/exemplar for man. That Allāh, God, does not incarnate Himself is made clear in His Qur’an 42:51: “And it is not for a man that Allāh should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a veil (vision), or by sending a messenger and revealing by His permission what He pleases. Surely He is High, Wise.” And this statement finds resonance in the Bible: “How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?–(Job 25:4). The meaning being that as man is born of a woman then he is not “clean.” And as Adam and Eve (and Melchisedec–Heb. 7:1-3) were not born of a woman then the implication is, according to Christians, that God, born of the woman, Mary, was not “clean.” In fact, according to Christians, Adam and Eve (and Melchisedec) were, in this respect at least, greater than God, as the former three were not born of a woman and was therefore “cleaner” than God). Allāh, God, being Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent does not need to incarnate Himself; whether as man or animal. To emphasize, only the peripheral Muslim and the unthinking would embrace the useless and unGodly crucifix.
Also, whereas Jesus ridiculed his mother as “Woman what have I do with thee?”4 and disowned her (as not doing the work of God),5 Christians are worshiping Mary and making her their passport into paradise. But this is not surprising considering that the Christian’s worship of the Madonna and her Child is rooted in Paganism, as Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din revealed in his book The Sources Of Christianity:
“I saw the figure of Isis with the Sacred Infant in the Municipal Museum of Alexandria, and there I also found the figure of the Madonna and the Child, the only difference between the two being that Horus was on the knees of Isis, while the Child was in the arms of the Virgin. The temples of the two Mother Goddesses stood side by side in Alexandria in the fourth century of the Christian Era. The two ladies, though rivals to each other, received almost equal homage from the Christians and the Pagans of the day, their temples being equally frequented by the votaries of the two faiths.
The Emperor Hadrian, in a letter to Servianus concerning the inhabitants of Alexandria, remarks that “those who worship Serapis are likewise Christians; even those who style themselves the bishops of the Christ are devoted to Serapis (Vosipiacus vit. Saturninus). Serapis was anther conception of the Sun-God, as Macrobius tells us in the following words: “The city of Alexandria pays almost frantic worship to Serapis and Isis; nevertheless, they show that all this veneration is merely offered to the Sun.” We read nothing of the Madonna and the Child, either in the evangelical record or in the writings of Paul and other Apostles. The conception, most assuredly, came from Alexandria to the Western world, where the Mother Goddess with the Child Redeemer Horus had been honoured centuries before the Christian Era, and worshipped under the names of “Our Lady,” “Queen of Heaven,” “Mother Goddess” and so forth –words that were afterwards used in reference to Mary, the Mother Goddess.
Isis was not the only Virgin Mother worshipped in the olden days. Osiris had also been believed to be born of Neith, the Virgin of the World, as the Egyptians called her, before Isis came to take her place. The sacred groves of Germany exhibited the image of the Goddess Hertha, a Virgin with a Child in her arms, in the old Teutonic days. She also gave birth to a child that was of Immaculate Conception. She was impregnated by the Heavenly Spirit.
Frigga conceived of the All-Father, Odin, bore a son, Balder of Scandinavia, called the Healer and Saviour of mankind.”(pp.35-36). (Worship that should go to God, the First and the Creator of all, Christians give to a woman created by God and call her “Mother of God.” And to know there are Muslims who abandon the magnificence of Islam and submit to Christian’s abomination –their falsehood and blasphemy).
“Jesus was the last of the series, brought on the pagan altar to popularize Christianity amongst the pagan world. The period of God-Incarnate is over. Christianity has proved the last chapter in the history of the Mystery cult. But a very poor one. The former cults had the beauty of originality in conception, the nicety of the flight of imagination. But the Church aped the old cult most slavishly and boorishly. She went so far as to steal word by word the whole pagan terminology. Almost all the names given to Jesus in the Church theology have been taken from the same source. (See his Sources of Christianity). The Alpha and Omega of Bacchus was put into the mouth of Jesus to suit the theory of Logos – another piece of literary larceny from Philo and others of the Alexandria philosophy. The Qur’an exposed it at a time when no other suspected it. It said: “The Christian says the Messiah is the Son of God; these are the words of their mouth; they imitate the sayings of those who were pagan before; Allāh destroyed them, now they are turned away”(9:31). Yes, God destroyed paganism through His Messengers, of whom Jesus was one, but it lived again through his followers; and lo! those who gave the name “heathen” to others became the same themselves.”6
About the Muslim woman’s covering her body Nonie Darwish states that “in reality a woman’s body is considered a thing she should be ashamed of.” (See item #120). But even Mary, the Christian’s “Mother of God” (and mother of their son of God), as Christians show us in their depictions of her, is covered like the Muslim woman. Why then bitch at Muslim women? In fact, Muslim women are to be praised. And as their “Mother of God” covered herself, are Christian women not to imitate their “Mother of God” and cover themselves? And (except for nuns) by not covering themselves like their “Mother of God” what are these Christian women conveying? that they know better than their “Mother of God”? or that they are more liberated and knowledgeable than their “Mother of God”? or that their “Mother of God” was backward and “ashamed” of her body?
Doesn’t Christianity require the Christian woman to cover her body? Didn’t God clothe Adam and Eve?–(Gen. 3:21; and there was no one then to see them). And Jesus (the Christian’s God and son of God) was covered from neck to toe in flowing robe (as Christians show us). Coptic priests are covered in head-to-toe black and Fundamentalist Jews are covered from head to toe in black, are these “ashamed of” their bodies? Shouldn’t you, Nonie Darwish, and Christian women in general cover up like your “Mother of God”? And shouldn’t the Pope and Bishops and Christian men be covered in flowing robes and wearing long hair and beard as Jesus? (Interestingly, contrary to Christian’s depiction of Jesus as being long-haired, blue-eyed and white-skinned, John in the Isle of Patmos described Jesus as being white-haired, red-eyed and yellow-skinned: “His head and his hairs were WHITE like WOOL, as WHITE as SNOW; and his eyes were as a FLAME OF FIRE; And his feet like unto fine BRASS, as if they burned in a furnace”–(Rev. 1:9, 14-15. This difference in appearance could not be because Jesus is in “heaven,” the dead/ resurrected is spiritualized [as angels are–Matt. 22:23-30; Luke 20:34-36], not chameleonized).
The Muslim woman’s body is not a thing to be “ashamed” of. Islam esteems womanhood as the symbol of purity and motherhood as the gateway to paradise. The Muslim woman covering her body –which is an identification and a reflection of her being of the exalted nation (Qur’an 33:59; 24:31; 2:143; 3:110)– is no “shame” but part of her passport to Paradise. (See Hijab/Head covering).
Muslim women who convert to Christianity believing that Christianity ameliorates their lot are deluded –these Muslim women know even less about Christianity than they do about Islam; to trade Islam for Christianity (or for any other religion) is like trading the superior of an item for an inferior one. Such Muslim women need to learn Islam and confront their males over their transgression against the injunctions of Allāh. Muslim males who subjugate and abuse their women need to consider if they believe they can defy Allāh and subjugate their women-folk and yet expect that Allāh will give them Jannah. Christianity does not ameliorate the lot of women. As shown in this presentation, whereas Islam has ennobled women and given woman rights alongside man from the cradle all the way to paradise, Christianity has woman mired in disgrace and degradation from birth to death and even beyond. Christianity gives you (woman) nothing but lifelong subjugation under the iron-fist of your husband, brands you as “transgressor,” “deceiver” and betrayer of man; makes you an object of sexual release, curses you as “defiler” of man all the way to the next world, and sets you up in marriage (misery) till “death” do you part (if your father does not first sell you into bondage). Here are the Biblical/Christian’s gem on women:
▪ “And if a man SELL HIS DAUGHTERto be a maidservant, she shall not go out (“be freed”) as the menservants do”–(Exodus 21:7).
▪ “Unto the woman He (God) said….thy desire shall be to THY HUSBAND, and HE SHALL RULE OVER THEE” –(Genesis 3:16).
▪ and “Let the woman learn in SILENCE with ALL SUBJECTION. But I SUFFER NOT A WOMAN TO TEACH, NOR TO USURP AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN but to be IN SILENCE–(1Tim. 2:11-12); “WIVES, SUBMIT YOURSELVES UNTO YOUR OWN HUSBANDS, AS UNTO THE LORD” “As the Church is subject unto Christ, SO LET THE WIVES BE TO THEIR OWN HUSBANDS IN EVERY THING” – “And the wife see that SHE REVERENCE HER HUSBAND”–(Ephesians 5:22-23, 33. The man being told to love his wife does not mean she is free from bondage. People also “love” their dogs and other pets and even bequeath fortunes to them. And Paul also instructs masters to be kind to their slaves–Ephesians 6:9; Col. 4:1).
▪ “And Adam was not deceived BUT THE WOMAN BEING DECEIVED WAS IN THE TRANSGRESSION”–(1 Tim. 2:14. Allah tells us that both Adam and Eve were deceived; and that they were forgiven–Qur’an 2:36-37; 7:20-22).
▪ “he (man) is the IMAGE AND GLORY OF GOD: but the WOMAN IS THE GLORY OF THE MAN. For the man is NOT of the woman; but the WOMAN OF THE MAN”–(1 Cor. 11:7-8), and “Neither was the man created for the woman; BUT THE WOMAN FOR THE MAN–(1 Cor. 11:9), “It is GOOD for a MAN NOT TO TOUCH A WOMAN. Nevertheless, TO AVOID FORNICATION, let everyman have his own wife”–(1 Cor 7:1-2. Allāh tells us that He created man and woman of the same substance and that they are mates of the other, has established marriage between them, that he might find peace and comfort in her, and has put between them love and compassion; that men and women are friends and protectors of the other; that husbands and wives are garments to the other and have mutual rights and spiritual equality, and will reside together in Gardens in the next life–(Qur’an 4:1, 3-4, 25; 7:189; 16:72; 25:54; 30:21; 9:71-72; 2:187; 2:228; 3:194, 197; 4:124; 24:30-31; 33:35; 36:56; 43:70; 49:13; 57:12, 18, 19).
▪ “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is NOT PERMITTED UNTO THEM TO SPEAK; but they are COMMANDED to be under obedience, as also saith the LAW. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at HOME: FOR IT IS A SHAME FOR WOMEN TO SPEAK IN THE CHURCH”–(1 Cor. 14:34-35. Today this law is violated and women are preachers in the Church). Clearly, permission to employ whatever methods are necessary to “rule” over the wife and to bring/keep her in “silence and in “all subjection’ are inherent and enshrined in these words of God and Paul. To take the matter further, authority for employing corporal punishment to discipline the rebellious wife who does not desire to be “ruled” over in “silence” and “all subjection” may be gleaned from the Biblical verses on child-rearing. God (and as Christians say Jesus is God, then Jesus) says: “He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes;” “Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying;” “Withhold not correction from the child: for if you beatest him with the rod, he shall not die, Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell” (and without doubt every “Christian” husband wants to deliver his stubborn/rebellious wife’s “soul from hell”)–(Proverbs 13:24; 19:18; 23:13-14). A Bishop is to be “One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with ALL GRAVITY”–(1 Tim. 3:4). Even God beats and scourges His sons into obedience and those who are not are “bastards”: “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be WITHOUT CHASTISEMENT, whereof all are partakers, then are ye BASTARDS, and NOT SONS”–(Hebrews 12:6-8). Thus one can imagine what latitude the Christian husband is allowed to bring/keep his wayward wife in all subjection and for him to become a “Bishop” and even to get into heaven to sit “on the right hand of God.” A survey of wives of all Christian sects can be conducted to find out how many were “beaten” into “silence” and “all subjection.” Surely, not all the “battered” wives in Western countries are non-Christians.
▪ Perhaps the ultimate Christian indignity towards women is during her menstrual period. He is forbidden to eat, drink, and sleep in the same bed with her; in fact, he is not allowed to touch anything she touches. The Biblical God (and as Christians say Jesus is God, Jesus) says: “When a woman has a discharge, if her discharge in her body is blood, she shall continue in her menstrual impurity for seven days; and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. Everything also on which she lies during her menstruation impurity shall be unclean, and everything on which she sits shall be unclean. And anyone who touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. And whoever touches any thing on which she sits shall wash his clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. Whether it be on the bed or on the thing on which she is sitting, when he touches it, he shall be unclean until evening. And if a man actually lies with her, so that her menstrual impurity is on him, he shall be unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean”–(Lev. 15:19-24). Contrast this Christian’s treating the menstruating woman like a leper to that of Islam in which Allāh says about menstruation that “they are a hurt and a pollution. So keep away from women in their courses, and do not approach them until they are clean”–(Qur’an. 2:222). This injunction to not approach the menstruating woman does not mean that she is unclean; only that the flow is unclean and to not have sex with them. This is made clear by the Prophet Mohammad who is reported to have said in explanation to the above quoted verse of the Qur’an: “Associate with them (wives) in the houses and do everything except sexual intercourse”–(Abu Dawud Vol. 1, #258). And, “‘Aisha said: I would eat flesh from a bone when I was menstruating, then hand it over to the Prophet (may peace be upon him) and he would put his mouth where I had put my mouth; I would drink, then hand it over to him, and he would put his mouth (at the place) where I drank”–(Ibid. #259). Again, “‘Aishah said: The Apostle of Allāh (may peace be upon him) would recline on my lap when I was menstruating, then recite the Qur’an”–(Ibid. #260). And the classic: “‘Aishah said: The Apostle of Allāh (may peace be upon him) said to me: Get me the mat from the mosque. I said: I am menstruating. The Apostle of Allāh (may peace be upon him) then replied: Your menstruation is not in your hands”–(Ibid. #261. Also #’s 267-273). And whereas the Christian who has sex with his menstruating wife is “unclean seven days, and every bed on which he lies shall be unclean,” the Muslim who has sex with his menstruating wife (while it is unlawful to do so) needs only give charity–(Abu Dawud Vol. 1, #’s 264-266).
▪ And the Christian woman’s marriage misery: “I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of un-chastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery;” “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery”–(Matt. 5:32; Luke 16:18. Unlike Allāh/Islam which allows amicable divorce when the parties can no longer live together the Christian woman is doomed to a life of marriage misery and to wilt her (youthful and beautiful) self in a loveless and even brutal marriage or risk being labeled “adulteress” (who are required to be stoned to death in Judeo-Christian law) from earth all the way to next world. And so does the man who should marry her. And whereas Allāh allows a divorced couple [who were married and divorced from their second or more partners] to remarry each other the Bible does not and considers the woman as being “defiled” [but the man is not “defiled;” talk about rabid misogyny]. And while the Muslim woman can initiate divorce, there is no mention of the Christian woman being able to do so. Here is what the Bible says about the divorced couple remarrying (and as Christians say Jesus is God, Jesus forbids the former couple remarrying): “When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favor in his eyes, because he had FOUND SOME UNCLEANNESS in her: then let him WRITE HER A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT, and give it in her hand, and SEND HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE….And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand….Her former husband which sendeth her away, may NOT take her again to be his wife, after that she is DEFILED; for that is ABOMINATION BEFORE THE LORD”–(Deut. 24:1-4. Talk about “easy” divorce. This takes the crown. Interestingly, whereas Deut. [Moses] says a man can divorce his wife if he finds some “uncleanness” in her, Jesus, the Christians God and son of God, says that if anyone divorces his wife for any reason except “un-chastity” makes her an ‘adulterer’ yet he [Jesus] tells his people to do whatever the Scribes and Pharisees bid them do because they sit in Moses’ seat; and the Scribes and Pharisees follow the Mosaic law which says you can put away your wife for some “uncleanness.” Talk about a circle of confusion. Again the Mosaic law teaches an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, but Jesus says to give the other cheek instead, yet he says to do what the Scribes and Pharisees says to do and the Scribes and Pharisees follow the Mosaic law which requires an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Another circle of confusion. The contradictions in Christianity are “staggering.” Matt. 23:2; Ex. 21:24; Matt. 5:38-39).
Regarding the saying that woman is “defiler” of man, the Book of Revelation (7:4-8; 14:1-4; and Matt. 19:28) states that 144,000 who will be JEWS (non-Jews, note well), and will all be MEN–consisting of 12,000 from each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel– will sit with Jesus in the next life judging the Twelve Tribes of Israel. About this 144,000 it is said: “These are they which were not DEFILED WITH WOMEN; for they are VIRGINS. These are they which follow the Lamb (Jesus) whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.” (God created man and woman to “fill the earth” and instilled in them passions for companionship to affect this; but Christians view this Divine scheme as sacrilege. A classic woman-hater). Regarding the 144,000 who will be with Jesus, one Christian apologist on the Internet suffered tremendous labor pains trying to baptize these literal “VIRGINS” into metaphorical ones. These 144,000 MEN are said to be the ones who remained “faithful to Jesus” by being celibates/ ”virgins” as Jesus was, as the Gospels say. That these are literal “virgins” “not defiled” by literal “women” is substantiated by the Bible itself. Jesus says in Matthew 5:32 that whoever marries a woman that is divorced for other than fornication “commits adultery.” Thus, woman here, even though she be married to the man “defiles” the man into an adulterer. Paul makes the matter clearer, he states that, but for avoiding “fornication,” “It is GOOD for a man NOT to touch a woman.” Why not? Because, as Paul says,“He that is UNMARRIED careth for the things that belong to the LORD, how he may please the LORD: But he that is MARRIED careth for the things that are of the WORLD, how he may please his WIFE.”7In other words, when a man takes a wife his caring for God is compromised by his caring for his wife –or she “defiles” him or causes him to be “defiled.” Further, Paul declares that as the wife has no power over her own body but the husband has power over her: “likewise also the husband hath NOT POWER of his own body, but the WIFE (has power of him).”8These Biblical teachings show that sexual contact with a woman “defiles” the man spiritually; and no amount of the Christian apologist’s literary gymnastics can flip this fact over. These 144,000 “virgins” are physical “virgins” who were ”not defiled” by physical “women,” and as they were not married, and therefore had no “wifely” constraints, they devoted their entire life to the pursuit of the spiritual and were the true followers of Jesus who, as the Gospels show, lived a life of celibacy. The Good News Bible understands this and states: “The 144,000 people stood before the throne…. They are the men who have kept themselves pure by NOT having SEXUAL RELATIONS with WOMEN; they are VIRGINS.” The Gideons Bible concur: “These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they are CELIBATES.” (See Christianity-144,000 virgins & Jesus).
▪ The Bible and the Christian’s God (Jesus) condemns woman as a betrayer of man. The Bible says: “Behold, everyone that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee (Jerusalem), saying, As is the mother, SO IS HER DAUGHTER” –(Ezek. 16:44). As Christians view woman as the “transgressor” (by virtue of her/Eve violating the command of God and eating of the forbidden fruit), and as she betrayed the man/Adam by giving him the fruit to eat, then according to this teaching of the Bible, every woman is a betrayer of man. In fact, according to Christianity every woman to be born and all the way to the Resurrection, is a betrayer of man. (Islam abrogated these teachings on women–(Qur’an 16:101 and 2:106).
▪ The Christian’s God (and as Christian’s say Jesus is God, Jesus) even took a peek at the Jewish daughters “private parts” because of their flaunting: “Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their SECRET PARTS”–Isaiah 3:16-17).
Surely, to place woman in subjection and bondage, to view her as an object of sex, as the transgressor, and as defiler and betrayer of man are hardly expressions of “love” and liberation. And Christ, as he declared, came NOT TO CHANGE THE LAW but TO FULFIL ITand even to the point of heaven and earth passing away:“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am NOT come to destroy, but to FULFILL. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in NO wise pass from the law, till ALL BE FULFILLED”–(Matthew 5:17-18);and he admonished his followers to obey the scribes and Pharisees: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: ALL therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, THAT OBSERVE AND DO”–(Matt. 23:2-3). And the scribes and Pharisees follow the Old Testament.
From its declarations Christianity is not only misogynistic; Christianity is brutally and rabidly misogynistic. Whatever lofty status the Christian Woman is enjoying is due only to the dictates of modern culture. In contrast, Islam has ennobled women, liberated her, and given her rights unparalleled in the history of religions –it has given her rights alongside man from the cradle all the way to Jannah. She has nothing more for which to strive.
Islam is the Great Liberator of Woman!
Islam is the only Liberator Woman has known!
Unable to advance their beliefs through intelligent discourse –there is nothing intelligent about God tossing sin around, from Adam/Eve onto all mankind then from all mankind onto Jesus and then having him killed; and God growing in the womb of a woman He created and coming out her vagina, sucked her “paps” and get Himself circumcised– and not finding any argument against the lofty doctrines of Islam –as the Divine System is perfect– Christians (and critics) resorted to their disgraceful practice of cloaking the Prophet Mohammad in the garb of terrorist and hedonist and attempting to demonize Islam. The only thing Christianity has to offer mankind is the mythical blood and body of Jesus Christ (spiritual cannibalism) and a seat in the pew of paganism.
Even if charges against Allāh, Islam, the Qur’an and Prophet Mohammad were proved yet this would not make Jesus God, son of God or vicarious atoner or that mankind inherited sin from Adam/Eve. These cardinal doctrines of Christianity have no Divine foundation, no prophetic foundation, no logical foundation, and are repugnant to reason. These doctrines are assumed and propagated as Divine truths. Moreover, Christianity is evil, intolerant, backward, naked hate, and an enemy to knowledge and (as shown above) brutally misogynistic; Christians lie on God they lie on Jesus, they blame the Devil; and the Gospels portray Jesus as hypocrite, liar and fraud. (See Christianity-lies, evil, hate; Christianity-enemy to knowledge; Jesus-hypocrite, liar, fraud).
What then would impel Christians to follow not only doctrines devoid of Divine foundation but doctrines that are opposed to reason (the factor by which God requires us to govern–Isaiah 1:18; Qur’an 16:125)? The reason seems to lie in the following; Thomas Arnold notes in his The Preaching Of Islam (p. 74): “A Muhammadan writer of the fourth century of the Hijjrah has preserved for us a conversation with a Coptic Christian which may safely be taken as characteristic of the general mental attitude of the rest of the Eastern Churches at this period:– “My proof for the truth of Christianity is, that I find its teachings contradictory and mutually destructive, for they are repugnant to reason and revolting to the intellect, on account of their inconsistency. No reflection can strengthen them, no discussion can prove them; and however thoughtfully we may investigate them, neither the intellect nor the senses can provide us with any argument in support of them. Notwithstanding this, I have seen that many nations and mighty kings of learning and sound judgment, have given in their allegiance to the Christian faith; so I conclude that if these have accepted it in spite of all the contradictions referred to, it is because the proofs they have received, in the form of signs and miracles, have compelled them to submit to it.” This Christian attitude of blindly following his leader is similar to that of the idolatrous Arabs blindly following their fathers: “And when it is said to them, “Follow what Allāh has revealed,” they say: Nay, we follow that wherein we found our fathers. What! Even though their fathers had no sense at all, nor did they follow the right way”–(Qur’an 2:170; 5:104; 31:21).
This Christian attitude reminds me of the Prophet Mohammad in his discussion with the Christian deputation of Najran, in the matter of the alleged divinity of Jesus. Even after the Prophet had convinced them that Jesus could not be God or son of God the Christians “insisted on their false belief.”11 And it is also reminiscent of M.H. Haykal who notes: “It was this materialistic ambition for wealth, worldly prestige and social eminence that caused Abu Harithah, the most learned of the people of Najran, to tell a friend of his that he was perfectly convinced of the truth of which Muhammad was teaching. When that friend asked him why he did not then convert to Islam, he answered: “I cannot do so on account of what my people have done to me. They have honored, financed, and respected me; and they insist on differing from him. Should I follow him, they would take away from me all this that I now have.”12 (The Prophet Mohammad is reported to have said that whoever wants to be honored let him build his house in the Fire).
God calls on man to belief NOT through miracles or magic or mythology or mystery: God calls on man to belief through reason: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”–(Isaiah 1:18). “Call to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in the best manner. Surely thy Lord knows best him who strays from His path, and He knows best those who go aright”–(Qur’an 16:125). Clearly:
Blind faith is no passport to Paradise
Reason is the door to God
Significantly, the Coptic Christian in the above discussion states that he follows Christianity because of others through “the proofs they have received, in the form of signs and miracles.” Does anyone know what Mary looked like to say that the “sightings” is a picture of her? And even false Christs and false prophets can perform miracles, and even to the extent of almost “seducing” the religious leaders, mush less the seducing of nations and kings–(Mark 13:22). Moreover, Hindus also claim to have signs from God; the idols of two of their Gods, Shiva and Ganesh, were said to have drunk milk.13 Whose signs are true, Christians or Hindus? And notably, the Hindu doctrines of karma and reincarnation run counter to Christian’s resurrection and judgment. Whose doctrines are true, Christians or Hindus? Did God give conflicting doctrines and sightings to man? “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (from falsehood and blasphemy)–(John 8:32).
“By Allāh! We certainly sent (messengers)
to nations before thee (Mohammad), but the
devil made their deeds fair-seeming to them.
So he is their patron today, and for them
is a painful chastisement.”
“O men, surely the promise of Allāh is true,
so let not the life of this world deceive you.
And let not the arch-deceiver (Satan)
deceive you about Allāh.
Surely the devil is your enemy, so take him
for an enemy. He only invites his party
to be companions of the blazing Fire”
(Qur’an 16:65; 31:33).
Jesus forewarns: “Many will say to me in that day (Day of Judgment), Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity”–(Matt. 7:22-23).
Since Christians do good works in Jesus’ name why would Jesus deny them as being iniquitous? Because Christians give to him (Jesus, and his mother) the worship and honor that should go to God. The above statement of Jesus is reflected in the Qur’an 5:116-117: “And when Allāh will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, didst thou say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allāh? He will say: Glory be to Thee! It was not for me to say what I had no right to say…I said to them naught save as Thou didst command me: Serve Allāh, my Lord and your Lord (comp. Mark 12:29); and I was a witness of them so long as I was among them, but when Thou didst cause me to die Thou wast the Watcher over them. And Thou art witness of all things.”
The worst sins are the worship of other(s) than God –in the Bible God has decreed death for this sin– and to teach falsehood in the name of God; as Jesus said: “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath NEVER forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation”–(Mark 3:29). Jesus aptly admonishes: “fear him which is able to destroy BOTH soul and body in hell;” the “everlasting fire” that “never shall be quenched;” the “furnace of fire” in which there shall be “wailing and gnashing of teeth”–(Matt. 10:28; 18:8; Mark 9:43; Matt. 23:14, 33; 13:42. Those who do not have teeth shall bear it on their gums).
In fact, whereas Muslims know that Allāh is God and Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh–(Qur’an 20:14; 58:21; 33:21; 13:36; 18:110; 33:40) –Muslims who regard Mohammad as more than Messenger of Allah, such as God, son of God, partner with God or God Incarnate are in manifest error; we have it drummed into our system at least five time a day in the adhan/call to prayer and in the Tashahhud of our salah/prayer that Mohammad is only the servant and Messenger of Allāh; perhaps to admonish us from straying into error and blasphemy as Christians have strayed and made Jesus God and son of God and God Incarnate– Christians do not know who God is and who Jesus is and what his mission was. Whereas some Christians say Jesus is God and one in a Trinity some say Jesus is only son of God and that TRINITY is ‘Satanic’; whereas some say Jesus died for inherited sin some say he died for committed sin; whereas some say Jesus was of virgin birth some say he was not of virgin birth; whereas some say he was born and was real some say he only appeared in human form and had a “phantom body;” whereas some say he was crucified some say someone else was crucified –this is not only a classical case of the blind following the blind; the contradictions in Christianity are “staggering.” Though Jesus’ teaching was simple, clear, and precise: that God sent him wholly and solely to the “House of Israel;” that God is One, and only God is to be worshipped/served; that eternal life lies in following the Ten Commandments, after which time his people are to follow the Comforter who will guide them into “all truth”–(Matt. 10:5-6; 15:24; 18:11; 7:6; 15:26; Mark 4:9-12; John 17:9; 4:21; 5:30-31; 6:38; 12:49; Matt. 19:16-19; John 16:13; 14:15-16).
(Incidentally, Jesus’ “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” is true of all prophets; every prophet of God is “the way, the truth, and the life” and passage to God–(John 14:6).
The claim by Paul that “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved,” is fanciful–(Acts 4:12; Matt. 1:21).
Moses not only give the Israelites the Ten Commandments, Jesus emphasized that the Ten Commandments is their pathway to Paradise–(Matt. 19:16-19).
Moreover, Jesus spoke of another Comforter who will guide people into “all truth.” Thus, if Jesus was the only name under earth through which one is saved there would be no need for another Comforter who will guide into “all truth.” And this Comforter who guided us into “all truth” is the Prophet Mohammad as shown by Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud –the former Reverend David Benjamin Keldani– in his book Muhammad in the Bible. Jesus saving “HIS people from their sins” only means that they will be saved by his teachings–(Matt. 1:21).
Nonie Darwish opines: “Islam is terrified of Christianity and Judaism.” (Cruel And Usual Punishment, p.196). (See Islam-terrified of Judaism & Christianity).
For nearly a thousand years (until we became lazy and fell away from the practice of Islam) Islam brought not only spiritual benefit to mankind but also material benefit. In the observations of Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din: “The whole world was a world of fetish worshippers at the appearance of Islam. From an eggshell to the man-worship of Christianity and Hinduism, the adoration that should go to God went to His creatures”14 And
“Soon after the time of Jesus, an age of utter decline and decay settled down on the world…. The Divine Flame which he had kindled in the human breast in the valley of the Jordan began to smoulder….While the Church in the West taught that man was a vile creature on God’s earth and that everything in the earth had been created to pamper the flesh and kill the spirit, Brahmanism, in the East, preached that man had no intrinsic worth at all, nor was there anything of good in him. His only salvation lay in separating himself from all worldly affairs and in leading the life of a recluse in the jungle. Such theologies and philosophies were fatal to progress. Absolute death –spiritual, moral and material– overtook the world, and dense clouds of wickedness and ignorance darkened its horizon. In this gloomiest epoch that had ever been known, a silver line appeared on the Arabian coast….It was a Message from on High, a message that was unique in its character even in the world of Revelation. All former Messages either spoke of tribal well-being –like that which came from Sinai or through the Vedas– or they alluded to personal favour, like that heard on the banks of the river Jordan. The Revelation in the cave of Mount Hira brought a Universal Gospel to humanity and revealed that the lowest of the low (for such had men become at that time) was destined to be greatest of the great.”15
Abdul Haque Vidyarthi:
“The condition in which the sacred scriptures of the world are found today, is really a harried one. These are, no doubt, the relics of those great Books that were given to the prophets of yore. No scripture of any religion was to be found in its original form and pristine purity at the time of the Holy Prophet’s (Mohammad) advent, nor is one found today. Such books, therefore, cannot prove the truth of religion, nay, their own prophets stand in need of vindication. A number of suspicions and misgivings have sprung up about the prophets, Zoroaster, Abraham, Krishna and Christ so much so that they are being looked upon as mere fictitious persons.”
“No scripture, writing or book has got so many people to its credit who learn it by heart, as the Holy Qur’an has. Religious scriptures underwent vicissitudes and had dark ages upon them, that their very contents and their existence became suspected. It was in this obscurity that the Vedas grew from one into four, and then from four to as many as 1131, there is a verse in Maha Bhashya which explains that there are one hundred and one shoots of Yajur-veda, one thousand of Sama-veda, twenty-one kinds of Rigveda and nine of Atharva-veda.
In these days we can see a dozen vedas published, in fact, which throws light on their vicissitudes.
The Masorah and Septuagint versions of the old Testament, the different authorized editions of the Sadducees and Pharisees, the apocryphal literature believed as part of inspired scriptures by some sects and rejected by others, the different versions of apocryphal Gospels, prove the credibility of the fact that no religious scripture was kept intact or properly maintained or committed to memory in the life-time of the prophet to whom it was revealed.” 16
And Muhammad Ali:
““From time beyond memory, Mecca and the whole Peninsula had been steeped in spiritual torpor. The slight and transient influences of Judaism, Christianity, or philosophical inquiry upon the Arab mind had been but as the ruffling here and there of the surface of a quiet lake; all remained still and motionless below. The people were sunk in superstition, cruelty, and vice… Their religion was a gross idolatry; and their faith the dark superstitious dread of unseen things… Thirteen years before the Hejira, Mecca lay lifeless in this debased state. What a change had these thirteen years now produced!…Jewish truth had long sounded in the ears of the men of Medina; but it was not until they heard the spirit-stirring strains of the Arabian Prophet that they too awoke from their slumber, and sprang suddenly into a new and earnest life”” 17
“Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Zoroastrianism had long ceased to have any healthy effect on the lives of their votaries, and the followers of these religions had not only ceased to practise virtue, but, worst of all, they had begun to look upon vice as virtue, and many of them attributed indecent and immoral practices to their sages and their gods. Christianity, which was then the youngest of the religions of the world, had also lost its purity. “The Christianity of the seventh century was itself decrepit and corrupt,” is Muir’s verdict. Such widespread corruption had never previously existed in the world’s history. A recent writer, J.H. Denison, writes in “Emotion as the Basis of Civilization”: “In the fifth and sixth centuries, the civilized world stood on the verge of chaos. The old emotional cultures that had made civilization possible, since they had given to men a sense of unity and of reverence for their rulers, had broken down, and nothing had been found adequate to take their place…. It seemed then that the great civilization which it had taken four thousand years to construct was on the verge of disintegration, and that mankind was likely to return to that condition of barbarism where every tribe and sect was against the next and law and order were unknown…. Civilization like a gigantic tree whose foliage had over-reached the world….stood tottering ….rotting to the core” (pp. 265-268). And then adds, speaking of Arabia: “It was among these people that the man was born who was to unite the whole known world of the east and south” (p. 269).
With the light of Islam, and through the torch of knowledge and civilization lit in Arabia, a new era dawned not only over Arabia, but also over other countries. Europe remained the longest in darkness, and it was only after the torch of knowledge had been lighted in Spain by the Muslims that both the Renaissance and the Reformation came.”18
How then is Islam “terrified of Christianity and Judaism”?
As 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 jot or title shall not pass till they all be fulfilled–(Matt. 5:17-18), (and considering that Christians say that Jesus is God then the commands of the Old Testament are given by Jesus’), thus 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);

-cannibalism will be legal–(Deut. 28:53, 57; 2 Kings 6:28-29); It would be legal to terrorized, 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”) “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–(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–(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: “there came forth little children…and mocked him (Elisha). And he…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–(Psalm 137:9; Isaiah 13:16);
-it would be legal to kill fetus during war–(Isaiah 13:15, 18; Hosea 13:16);
-Woman would be seen and not heard and her daughter bondaged–(Gen. 3:16; Ex. 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 Tim. 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 Tim. 3:4; Heb. 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–(Gen 38:24; Lev. 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–(Lev. 24:11-16, 23; Deut; 13:5-16; 17:2-5; Deut. 22:20-21; 22:23-24; 21:18-21; John 8:3-5);
-the witch, one who curses his father or mother, the adulterer, homosexuals, and the man who commits bestiality would be put to death–(Ex. 22:18; Lev. 20:9; 10-12; Deut. 22:22; Lev. 20:13; 15-16);
-a man who takes a “wife and her mother” both would be torched–(Lev. 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–(Matt. 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–(Matt. 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”–(Matt. 5:32; Luke 16:18);

-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–(Matt. 6:19, 25-26);
-and 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….and of WOMEN that had not known man by lying with him (virgin girls), were 32,000”–(Numbers 31:1-53). (See item #18).
(Non-Christians should go down on their hands and knees and forehead and thank Allāh 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. (Please note: this is the Christians’ Jesus. For the Muslims’ Jesus read the Qur’an).
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 prepon-derancy;
-non-Muslims would be governed by the laws of their scripture (to an extent);
-there would be no 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); no Gambling; no pornography; no prostitution and thus no pimping; 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);
-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. Shown later).
Only the occupier/usurper, the oppressor, the exploiter, the transgressor, those ignorant of Islam, those dedicated to falsehood and those dedicated to living off the blood of others are terrified of Islam.
(It is both intriguing and amusing to read a newspaper report about a British Muslim and Member of Parliament encouraging Europeans to return to their “Christian” roots. Either this Muslim MP knows Islam and Christianity or does not know.
If this Muslim MP is encouraging Europeans to return to the teachings of Christ, then Europeans would have no alternative but to follow Islam and Paradise. If this Muslim MP is urging Europeans to follow the teachings of the Church, then Europeans will be following paganism and Hell).
Again. Only the peripheral Muslim and the unthinking would embrace the useless and unGodly crucifix.
