Wherein Citizen Warrior discussed one of the principal objections to the fatal fact of Islam, which Citizen Warrior refers to as its "prime directive", that being global conquest.
K.M. and others are either suffering from supreme cognitive dissonance or practicing al-Taqiyya. "Allah's Word." "Allah's Word." God damn it, what part of that key phrase escapes comprehension?????! Have all lost track of the concept of literalism? The Qur'an is not relative, it is literal!!! "Allah's Word." Let that sink in for a moment. Allah commanded a pen to write. What it wrote is on a sealed tablet, guarded by angels. It is protected from editing, immune to change. "Allah's Word. "
Citizen Warrior next brought up an attempt to edit the Qur'an. That set me off on a long comment which was more than blogspot would accept, so here it is.
Allah recited it to Jibril, who recited it to Moe. Moe recited it to the Muslims, who memorized it. "Allah's Word." Have you no clue??? "Allah's Word." !!! "Allah's Word." !!! I have a clue for you. 2:59. But those who did wrong changed the word from that which had been told to them for another, so We sent upon the wrong-doers Rijzan (a punishment) from the heaven because of their rebelling against Allâh's Obedience. (Tafsir At-Tabarî, Vol. I, Page 305). What did the Jews do? Who said that?? Whose word is it? 7:162. But those among them who did wrong changed the word that had been told to them. So We sent on them a torment from heaven in return for their wrong-doings. What did those Jews do? Whose word?? 14:28. Have you not seen those who have changed the Blessings of Allâh into disbelief (by denying Prophet Muhammad and his Message of Islâm), and caused their people to dwell in the house of destruction? What did they do to earn Hell? Whose word?? 50:28. Allâh will say: "Dispute not in front of Me, I had already, in advance, sent you the threat. 50:29. The Sentence that comes from Me cannot be changed, and I am not unjust (to the least) to the slaves." "Allah's Word!" "Allah's Word!" "Allah's Word!" Has it sunk in yet?? 6:115. And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can change His Words. And He is the AllHearer, the AllKnower. "None can change His Words." Whose words? Which words?? 18:27. And recite what has been revealed to you (O Muhammad ) of the Book (the Qur'ân) of your Lord (i.e. recite it, understand and follow its teachings and act on its orders and preach it to men). None can change His Words, and none will you find as a refuge other than Him. "None can change His Words" Whose words? Which words??? 10:64. For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present world (i.e. righteous dream seen by the person himself or shown to others), and in the Hereafter. No change can there be in the Words of Allâh, this is indeed the supreme success. "No change can there be in the Words of Allâh,". Whose words? Which words???? 30:30. So set you (O Muhammad ) your face towards the religion of pure Islâmic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allâh Alone) Allâh's Fitrah (i.e. Allâh's Islâmic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalqillâh (i.e. the Religion of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir AtTabarî, Vol 21, Page 41] "No change let there be in Khalqillâh" 35:43. (They took to flight because of their) arrogance in the land and their plotting of evil. But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it. Then, can they expect anything (else), but the Sunnah (way of dealing) of the peoples of old? So no change will you find in Allâh's Sunnah (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in Allâh's Sunnah (way of dealing). "So no change will you find in Allâh's Sunnah"
"'Far removed (from mercy), far removed (from mercy), those who changed (the religion) after me!" Far from mercy: roasting in the fire. Changed the religion after me: edited Allah's Words; introduced innovation.
"they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam)." What did they do to earn the fire?
...This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion....
Exactly how will you improve that which is perfected?!? You will not improve Allah's perfection, you will only defile it. Got a clue yet? If not, there is nothing I can do to help you.
Fard: religious obligation. Two basic kinds: fard ayn: universal binding on every individual, such as salat & zakat; also defensive jihad when Dar-al-Islam is invaded. Fard al-Kifaya: binding on all eligibile individuals until a sufficient number have answered the call; offensive jihad.
From Reliance of the Traveller, Book o, Chapter 9, Section 1:
"Meaning upon the Muslims each year". What does that mean? How is it interpreted? What did Moe do? In the last 9 years of his life, he started a war every six weeks on the average. Got a clue yet? I have a clue for you.
That is Islamic law. Jihad is defined in the previous section, as war against non-Muslims.
What does the caliph do? Why?
49:15. Only those are the believers who have believed in Allâh and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh. Those! They are the truthful. "strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh" What does that mean? I have a clue for you. 9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success . "They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. " That phrase defines believers. No jihad, no belief; hypocrisy. Muslims are obligated [fard al-kifaya] to conquer the entire world for Allah. Why? What did Allah say? What did Moe do? I have a clue for you. Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have." What was Moe ordered to do? Muslims are ordered to do that, too. I have a clue for you. 33:21. Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much. Muslims are commanded to emulate Moe. Moe was commanded to conquer the world. From Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386
"Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master." What did Moe order them to do? Why? "Allah's Word." Get it yet?
