Co-existence

Combating Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims a presentation by Ambassador Hemayet Uddin

On page four of the document, we find this gem of wisdom.

A point that OIC Secretary General Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu has emphasized time and again is that Islam and the West could and should live and co-exist together in peace and harmony as the common denominators that link them outweigh their differences. In his view, we share the universal standards that human dignity is inviolable and striving for democracy is an important foundation for human dignity, individual liberties, and freedom of religion. He firmly believes that by deploying joint efforts for the recognition of the other and cultural diversity and addressing the root causes of terrorism, the world would be very close to a historic reconciliation between Islam and the West, and deny “la raison d”etre” for Islamophobia. Islam and the West could and should live and co-exist together in peace and harmony as the common denominators that link them outweigh their differences.

  • Islam and the West could and should live and co-exist together in peace and harmony as the common denominators that link them outweigh
    their differences.

What did Allah say about that in his book?

  1. 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.
  2. 8:60.And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.
  3. 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

How is that scripture reflected in Islamic law?

The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace), “I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,” this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

O-9.9
The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y-21), 6.48-49) ).

The O.I.C.’s Secretary General says that we should live together in peace and harmony. Why does he say something that directly contradicts what Allah said? Does he know better than Allah? Am I mis-interpreting Allah’s word? Lets check with Ibn Kathir, who spent his lifetime studying Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition & jurisprudence.

  • In his view, we share the universal standards that human dignity is
    inviolable

What did Moe say regarding human dignity? Whom do Muslims emulate, Moe or the Secretary General?

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.

According to Moe, our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims, only becoming sacred to them when we become Muslims. Moe was an exemplar of good manners, lets see what else he taught about human dignity.

Sahih Muslim Book 026, Number 5389:

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.

Does Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu know Allah’s will better than Allah’s Apostle, or is he just another lying politician set out to deceive us?

  • individual liberties

Since when do slaves have liberties? Oh, you didn’t know? Muslims are Allah’s slaves.

2:186. And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright

9:111. Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

  • freedom of religion

There is no freedom of religion in Islam. How many churches are there in Saudi Arabia?

3:19. Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account.

3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.

  • root causes of terrorism: Allah said:

3:151.We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers).

8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.

33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

And Moe said:

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), …

Islamic terrorism is doctrine driven, not grievance driven. Islam is the cause, not poverty, ignorance nor oppression.

  • deny “la raison d”etre” for Islamophobia

Islamophobia would not exist if Islam did not exist, nor if Islam was anodyne. Fear & loathing of Islam is well founded, on 1385 years of barbarian bloodshed. engendered by the damnable doctrines enshrined in the Qur’an & exemplified by Moe’s Sunnah & Sira.
