Insufficient Knowledge of Islam

Combating Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims a presentation by Ambassador Hemayet Uddin
On page 8 of the screed, we encounter more turgid text.

At the just concluded 34th Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers held in Islamabad on May 14-16, 2007, the Foreign Ministers of the 57 members countries were unanimous in their view that one of the main reasons for Islamophobic actions was insufficient knowledge or understanding of Islam. They stressed that it was wrong to draw a link between Islam with terrorism and were firm in stating the point that terrorism has no religion and that the OIC was an active partner in the international community’s war against terrorism. The Ministers rejected the extremists who were using the name of Islam to legitimize their acts of terror. They said that all would have to understand the fact that Islam negates violence.

  • insufficient knowledge or understanding of Islam

Undoubtedly, there is insufficient knowledge and understanding of Moe’s Murder Cult. I urge and exhort everyone to read the Qur’an & Hadith.  For those unwilling to invest the time and effort required, I have compiled a list of the most important ayat & ahadith, with links to translations. I have also compiled a pdf file containing the complete text of those verses.

What You Need to Know About Islam begins with a direct quotation from Sharia, which declares that “The Caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians”… followed by the outline of verse links. It ends with the link to the pdf file.

Alternatively, you can learn most of what you need to know about Islam by reading these topics in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, which includes many of the listed ayat & ahadith.

  • They stressed that it was wrong to draw a link between Islam with terrorism

Who drew that link?

  • Allah
    • 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.
    • 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.[Hilali & Khan]
      • to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies [Yusuf Ali]
      • terrify thereby the enemy of God and your enemy [Arberry]
      • strike terror into the enemy [Rodwell]
    • 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.
    • 33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allah is Able to do all things.
    • 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Bani An-Nadir) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! But Allah’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
    • 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Bani An-Nadir) breasts than Allah. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allah).
  • Moe
    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
      Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
      The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
      1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey.
      2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
      3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
      4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
      5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
    • Sahih 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), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

  • terrorism has no religion

Religion has no terrorism. Islam is a murder cult, a war machine, not a religion! Salat is window dressing, a camouflage; Zakat is an income source for the Caliph, Paradise & Hell are motivational instruments for the Mujahideen.

  • OIC was an active partner in the international community’s war against terrorism

What is their attitude toward the activities of Hamas and Hizbollah in Israel and Lebanon?  Will the OIC explicitly condemn them?  If not, their denunciation of terrorism is a sham.

  • Islam negates violence
  • 2:195. And spend in the Cause of Allah (i.e. Jihad of all kinds, etc.) and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allah), and do good. Truly, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers).
    • (And spend in the cause of Allah and do not throw yourselves into destruction.) the destruction refers to staying with our families and estates and abandoning Jihad’.” This was recorded by Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa’i, `Abd bin Humayd in his Tafsir, Ibn Abu Hatim, Ibn Jarir, Ibn Marduwyah, Al-Hafiz Abu Ya`la in his Musnad, Ibn Hibban and Al-Hakim. At-Tirmidhi said; “Hasan, Sahih, Gharib” Al-Hakim said, “It meets the criteria of the Two Shaykhs (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) but they did not record it.” Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir
    • Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

      Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

      I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

  • 2:216. Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who are the Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V.2:2).
    • 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.”
