§7: “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

Quran & Hadith Contradictions & Misconceptions

Quran 5:32 has been so misquoted, adulterated, dissimulated, that it is necessary to openly discuss it and examine its real meaning to dispel further falsehoods told around it.

Quran 5:32


This morning, 10.10.10 on BBC, “Sunday Morning Live” I heard an Sunni Imam, Ajmal Masoor, who is also a politician say:

“Whoever kills a person [innocent person]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

I immediately was very disturbed that this Imam could use the BBC to disseminate dissimulations to millions of viewers unchallenged. Why do I accuse Imam Masoor of dissimulation? Let us first examine the original text, with different translations and assess for ourselves.

Different translations of Quran: 5:32

[5.32] For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men; and certainly Our apostles came to them with clear arguments, but even after that many of them certainly act extravagantly in the land. (U of Michigan’s translation.)

005.032

YUSUFALI: On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.
PICKTHAL: For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.
SHAKIR: For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men; and certainly Our messengers came to them with clear arguments, but even after that many of them certainly act extravagantly in the land.
Bijan Moeinian: Based upon this incidence, I decreed to the children of Israel (and such passages are missing in the existing bibles except a few verses in Thalmud) that: “Whoever kills a human being (unless the latter being guilty of murder or spreading corruption on earth) should be looked upon as though he has killed the entire humanity and whoever saves a life should be considered as the savior of whole mankind.” However, in spite of many Prophets which came to them with undeniable miracles, the majority of them chose to disregard the Divine laws.
Muhd Ahmed Scimira: That is why We decreed for the children of Israel that whosoever kills a human being, except (as punishment) for murder or for spreading corruption in the land, it shall be like killing all humanity; and whosoever saves a life, saves the entire human race. Our apostles brought clear proofs to them; but even after that most of them committed excesses in the land.
Sher Ali: That is why We decreed for the children of Israel that whosoever kills a human being, except (as punishment) for murder or for spreading corruption in the land, it shall be like killing all humanity; and whosoever saves a life, saves the entire human race. Our apostles brought clear proofs to them; but even after that most of them committed excesses in the land. Q: 5:32 alt

Analysis of the various translations of Quran 5:32


It is quite apparent that “Whoever kills a person….it is as though he killed all mankind” is completely misleading and dishonest and is intended as a dissimulation. It is as though it is saying that Allah disapproves of killing (of any kind) i.e. “whoever kills… is killing mankind.” It is misleading because it is out of context and it was abbreviated deliberately to deceive those not familiar with the Quran. Because when the verse is read in full it implies that “when the person is a murderer, or someone who inciting sedition,” that killing him is justified. And in the eyes of Muslims, all non-Muslims who reject Allah and Islam are “spreading corruption”(are thus enemies of Islam and cannot be innocent) and are legitimate targets to be killed. But it does imply (to Muslims) that killing another (innocent) Muslim would be synonymous to killing all mankind. (That, I believe was Muhammad’s intended meaning of that verse.)

Umar ibn Kathir (1301-1373) – Tafsir


Let me quote from Umar ibn Kathir (1301-1373) a foremost Tafsir(interpreter) writer, (another source to illustrate that this concept is not unique or bigoted or modern.) [3] :

So, strictly speaking, verse 5:32 is only applicable to the children of Israel (the verse says it). Any way, to be fair, we shall ignore this limitation and concentrate on the wider meaning:

On the surface of it, the first sentence (Islamists often quote only the first sentence, conveniently hiding the next sentence) of verse 5:32 seems very munificence and non-violent. What does the next sentence say? It says clearly that even when Allah sent His messengers many people disbelieved them. Muhammad was one of such messengers, the best and the last. Therefore, “those who disbelieve in Muhammad and Allah (i.e. the non-Muslims) are the transgressors. Evidently, the non-Muslims are the mischief-makers on earth. Logically, these non-Muslims do not fall under the purview of the merciful provisions of verse 5:32. In simple language, this means: verse 5:32 is applicable only to the Muslims. To confirm this, let me quote ibn Kathir  the foremost Tafsir writer:

Beginning  of Kathir’s quote

(if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) ***Saving life in this case occurs by not killing a soul that Allah has forbidden (A Muslim.) So this is the meaning of saving the life of all mankind, for whoever forbids killing a soul without justification, the lives of all people will be saved from him.” Similar was said by Mujahid;

[وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا]

(And if anyone saved a life…) means, he refrains from killing a soul. Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said that Allah’s statement,

[فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً]

(it would be as if he killed all mankind. .) means, ***“Whoever kills one soul **’that Allah has forbidden killing,’ is just like he who kills all mankind.” Sa’id bin Jubayr said, “He who allows himself to shed the blood of a Muslim, is like he who allows shedding the blood of all people. He who forbids shedding the blood of one Muslim, is like he who forbids shedding the blood of all people.” In addition, Ibn Jurayj said that Al-A`raj said that Mujahid commented on the Ayah,

[فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً]

(it would be as if he killed all mankind,) ***“He who kills a believing soul (*believer in Islam) intentionally, Allah makes the Fire of Hell his abode, He will become angry with him, and curse him, and has prepared a tremendous punishment for him, equal to if he had killed all people, his punishment will still be the same.” Ibn Jurayj said that Mujahid said that the Ayah,

[وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً]

(and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) means, “He who does not kill anyone, then the lives of people are safe from him.”

End of Kathir’s quote.

There you are! This tafsir by Kathir says ***when a Muslim is killed it is as if the entire humanity is killed. When an infidel is killed it has no relevance. Similarly, when a Believer’s (i.e. Muslim’s) life is saved it is as if the entire humanity is saved. You see, in the Qur’an and in Islam what matters most is the lives of Muslims and not the lives of infidels. [4]

Why do the erudite Islamists of the Fiqh Council of North America want to hide this truth?

This answer can also be found in the Qur’an.

Please note: ***there are at least 18 verses in the Qur’an which ask for the pre-emptive murder of the kafirs (infidels). But, it is not that simple to annihilate all the unbelievers just like that. It needs time, patience, plan, strategies, weapons and pretexts to wage a campaign of total slaughter of the non-Muslims. We observe this clever procedure is followed by the true Islamists and the suicide bombers. Even the former Prime Minister of Malaysia , Dr Mahathir Mohammad had asked the Muslims to acquire modern weapons to wage a war against the Jews. He purposely, did not mention the entire non-Muslim population, simply because his country is precariously dependent upon the investment of these infidels.

When the situation does not permit the Islamists to openly declare the murder of infidels, Allah asks them not to be friendly with them. Here are a few verses that tell the Muslims not to befriend the non-Muslims:

Do not take unbelievers as friends; caution is necessary to befriend the unbelievers…3:28

3:28 Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliyâ (supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allâh in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them. And Allâh warns you against Himself (His Punishment), and to Allâh is the final return.

In pure Islamic Paradises one will surely note this verse being fully practised. You will observe very little co-operation between the Muslims and the non-Muslims. The interaction between the aggressive Muslims and the feeble non-Muslim minority is almost non-existent. In some Islamic societies (like Malaysia , Brunei ) Muslims are not even allowed to patronize non-Muslim restaurants and eateries. In an Islamic State like Brunei , there are signboards in Malay language inside all non-Muslim restaurants stating, “Bukan Makanan orang Islam (food here is not for the Muslims)”. Similar warnings are also implied in Malaysia or in other Islamic countries.

This is the limit of tolerance and friendship (with infidels) in Islam!

Now, when the Islamists migrate to infidel lands, they simply hide those truths. They become sheer hypocrites. Outwardly, they pretend to show a friendly face, but inwardly, they remain as hateful, vicious and cantankerous towards the non-Muslim as before. Why should they have this double-face?—one might wonder. Once again, the answer is also contained in the above verse (3:28). This verse tells the Muslims to exercise caution when befriending the infidels. In fact, what it really means is:  when weak, the Muslims are allowed to be hypocrites in dealing with the non-Muslims. They are permitted to tell lies and hide the truth about their religion.

Once again, I will prove my assertion by quoting from ibn Kathir

Start of Kathir’s quote:

The Prohibition of Supporting the Disbelievers

…………………………………………………………

Allah said next,

[إِلاَ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَـةً]

(unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ said, “We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curst them.” Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, The Tuqyah (Taqiyya) is allowed until the Day of Ressurection.” Allah said,

[وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفْسَهُ]

End of Kathir’s quote.

Islam even forbids Muslims to be in friendly terms with their non-Muslim parents or kindred. In Islamic parlance, even verbal criticism of Islam means oppression. If a non-Muslim father or a non-Muslim brother of a convert (to Islam) utters any words and/or makes any grimaces that is offensive to the nascent Muslim convert, it is deemed to be oppressive/blasphemy. Therefore, as per Islamic rule a retaliation becomes due. Muslims are now allowed to murder them even though they might be their father, brother or sister.

Do you not believe this? Read the following Qur’anic verse.

The believers should not take even their fathers, brothers, or sons as friends if they resist God and Muhammad; these types of believers are the party of God, that is, the believers cannot be friendly with the unbelievers even though they are their blood… 58:22

58:22 You (O Muhammad) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. they are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be successful. (ibn Kathir)

***Non-Muslims are Never Innocent – They deny Allah and his Prophet

Views of a Respected Imam

UK Imam: “Non-Muslims are never innocent, they are guilty of denying Allah and his prophet”

APRIL 1, 2008 4:54 PM BY 

The Anjem Chaudary video has, of course, been circulating for quite some time — it was already old when we posted it in December 2006 — but it bears repeating whenever you hear a Muslim spokesman in the West claiming that Islam forbids the killing of innocent civilians. Why is it so hard to get a definition of “innocent” in this context?

“Report: Non-Muslims Deserve to Be Punished,” from FoxNews (thanks to PNM):

A report posted on Islam Watch, a site run by Muslims who oppose intolerant teachings and hatred for unbelievers, exposes a prominent Islamic cleric and lawyer who support extreme punishment for non-Muslims “” including killing and rape.

A question-and-answer session with Imam Abdul Makin in an East London mosque asks why Allah would tell Muslims to kill and rape innocent non-Muslims, including their wives and daughters, according to Islam Watch.

“Because non-Muslims are never innocent, they are guilty of denying Allah and his prophet,” the Imam says, according to the report. “If you don’t believe me, here is the legal authority, the top Muslim lawyer of Britain.”

The lawyer, Anjem Choudary, backs up the Imam’s position, saying that all Muslims are innocent.

Click here to watch the interview with Islamic lawyer Anjem Choudary.

“You are innocent if you are a Muslim,” Choudary tells the BBC. “Then you are innocent in the eyes of God. If you are not a Muslim, then you are guilty of not believing in God.”

Choudary said he would not condemn a Muslim for any action.

“As a Muslim, I must support my Muslim brothers and sisters,” Choudary said. “I must have hatred to everything that is not Muslim.” [5]

Concluding Comments Ending Dissimulation:


Quran 5:32 Has either been used ignorantly or surreptitiously in such a way as to portray, innocently or maliciously, the munificence of Islam by the simply contraction of the verse to the following and saying the Quran says,

Whoever kills a person……it is as though he has killed mankind.”
This implies that the Quran believes killing another person is abhorrent and it is not Islamic. But as the above has shown, the contraction has altered the meaning of the verse 5:32 altogether and is a dissimulation. However for a non-Muslim to arrive at such a conclusion would appear bigoted, thus it was necessary to quote, at lengths, Tafsirs from respected Muslims like Umar ibn Kathir to provide the irrefutable evidence needed to show authentication.

This article should put to rest any further ambiguity regarding Qur’an 5:32

Addendum

It appears that this article has troubled many Muslims who have read it. Thus I felt that the article has not sufficiently covered the salient points I have attempted to convey, thus I will extend my analysis. Many Muslims still adhere to:

“Whoever kills a person [innocent person]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

Indeed, on the surface it sounds a very noble cosmopolitan philosophy but it is totally out of context with the totality of the Islamic Quranic ideology and thus a total dissimulation as it stands. To prove that it is totally out of context I will quote a few Islamic verses to show why I believe this is so.

Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people (infidels) till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people (infidels) 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.”

Muslim (1:30) – “The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people(infidel) so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”

Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.”

Bukhari (52:73) – “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords’.”

Then in case Women and children are considered “innocent” I quote:

Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).”

In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings. [The Prophet makes it very clear that a non-Muslim (infidel) is a legitimate target for death. It also implies that only Muslims can be innocent, never infidels. This is a point missed by most apologists of Islam.]

Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

***Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, who were led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. This is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Quran (4:95) – 

“Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-“ This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

***Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

Quran (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah”

Some translations interpret “fitna” as “persecution”, but the traditional understanding of this word is not supported by the historical context (See notes for 2:193). The Meccans were simply refusing Muhammad access to their city during Haj. Other Muslims were allowed to travel there – just not as an armed group, since Muhammad had declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah”, meaning that the true justification of violence was the unbelief of the opposition. According to the Sira (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 324) Muhammad further explains that “Allah must have no rivals.”

Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

Quran (8:67) – “It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land…”

Conclusions

There is no doubt that Islam is a Totalitarian Supremacist Theocracy that has no mercy for infidels. There are also no innocent infidels, they are all guilty of mischief against Allah and are not a part of mankind.

ESSENTIAL EPILOGUE  (added on 22 November, 2015)

This article on Quran 5:32 has attracted much attention from Muslims some of whom are quite distressed and disturbed with its contents. This is probably because I have not presented it thoroughly enough, so I will make an attempt to be more plain in my analysis. I will restrict myself to referring to Islamic religious texts in my analysis.

Why Quran 5:32 is Out of Context with the Quran and Ahadith

(1) “Whoever kills a person [innocent person]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

We have already discussed that a Jew, Christian or Idol worshipper is NEVER an innocent person. No where in the Quran has a Jew,Christian or Idol worshipper ever been referred to as an innocent person. Only Muslims can be innocent.

(2) [5.32] For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; (Another version)

What is considered spreading “mischief in the land?”

Fasad (Arabicفساد /fasād/) is an Islamic concept which means spreading mischief in a Muslim land,moral corruption against God, and any form of expression or activity by non-Muslims or apostates of Islam that creates disorder in the Muslim community.

So “spreading mischief ” is a code term to clearly refer to non-Muslims and never to devout Muslims. So it becomes clear that it does not apply to, “those who spread mischief in Muslim land or non-Muslims. This cannot be clearer.

So it should be abundantly clear that most Muslims have been misled or misunderstood Quran 5:32

I just hope that Muslims will read this article slowly and digest every word carefully to understand the analysis made. This analysis has not been made to discredit Quran 5:32, only to interpret it as Muhammad would have intended it to be. In fact Quran 5:32 is defending the integrity of the Muslims as Muhammad had intended i.e., That a Muslim must never kill another Muslim but with only the above exceptions.

What, I believe, is so distressing to most Muslims when they read this article is that, “they cannot accept that what they believed as one of the NOBLE tenets of Islam has been so badly misunderstood by them for all these years with this new analysis of Quran 5:32”

Thus Quran 5:32 should read as follows:

“Whoever[a Muslim] kills a person [another innocent Muslim] [innocent person]… unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land [blaspheming against Allah – apostacy],it is as though he has killed all [of Islamic] mankind. And whoever saves a [Mulsim] life, it is as though he had saved all [Islamic] mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32)

*****Any other meaning of the above is a corruption of that phrase, or out of context  of the whole ethos of the Quran and Ahadith, and unworthy of consideration because it dissimulates its true meaning.

      Rafeeque thank you for your links. Link 1 states:
      “According to Islam it is a great sin to kill an innocent person, and anyone who does so will suffer great torment in the hereafter:

      …So We decreed for the tribe of Israel that if someone kills another person – unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth – it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind. Our Messengers came to them with Clear Signs but even after that many of them committed outrages in the earth. (Qur’an 5: 32)

      As we can see from the above verse, killing one innocent person is regarded as equivalent to killing all of mankind. In another verse, the importance that the faithful attach to life is expressed in these terms:

      “Those who do not call on any other god together with Allah and do not kill anyone God has made inviolate, except with the right to do so, and do not fornicate; anyone who does that will receive an evil punishment” (Qur’an 25: 68)”

      But the Quran also states: Qur’an:8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”
      So it is clear that, “an infidel can never be an innocent person.” Therefore, killing infidels is totally justified in Islam. In fact all Jihad killings can be justified as retaliation for rejecting Allah.

      In Link 2: “”If one amongst the pagans ask thee for asylum,grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah; and then escort him to where he can be secure that is because they are men without knowledge.”
      [Al-Qur’an 9:6]”

      Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. According to this verse, they are to be violently subjugated, with the sole justification being their religious status. This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.

      So if the infidel is not willing to repent and accept Allah as his god, he should be killed. There is no other alternative, is there?

      That is my perspective.

      • Jalal Kassab

        the quran talks about not to go to extreme with your religion, this is what this post is wanting to conclude. The Imam gave the verse and the sanctity of life, yet some arguments that killing innocent people is acceptable. It is not.
        Qur’an:8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”
        NO. This does justify, “an infidel can never be an innocent person.”
        God i stalking and saying “I”. He is not saying Mohammed because He is named here is an “Apostle”. Furthermore this Chapter 8 in the Quran is in a war context, it is not about killing your neighbour or warring with your neighbour about having different beliefs. This is about when you are being attacked.
        The context you preface and your interpretations is not found in mainstream of Islam and you and the extremist share a perverted view of Islam only due to your misunderstanding and lazy interpenetration.

      • mbplee

        Jalal Kassab, Thank you for your comments. I would not expect any other reply from a Muslim. But we have each to interprete the Quran as it appears to us and not according to how you want us to interprete it. Muslims should be realistic when they read their Quran and not attempt to window dress Islam. Just look around the world at the Islamic world when you interprete the Quran and ask yourself, why? Why are ISIL beheading other Arabs? or their captive Christians? Why? Are they misguided Muslims or are you?

      • Jalal Kassab

        Once again you post “infidel is not willing to repent and accept Allah as his god, he should be killed. There is no other alternative, is there?”
        Yes there is, you just have not collated all the evidence. Yet the substantially more verses about harmony and tolerance. They cant contradict each other and they don’t. It is your interpenetration of them and poor scholarly application.
        You have obviously not familiar with the numerous treaties that were made with both Christians and Jews and while many flourished with religions freedoms and where significant communities lived.
        Do they not forget it was the Muslim upon capturing Jerusalem the Patriarch Sophronius, a representative of the Byzantine government in 637 AD handed the keys to the city to the Muslims Caliph. After 600 years in exile the Muslims permitted the return of the Jews back in to the holy city with full religious freedoms.
        Furthermore, when the Jews were persecuted and expelled with the Muslims during the Spanish Inquisition of the late 14 Century in Europe they’re settled in the Muslim lands with full religious freedoms, another convenient fact forgotten, even to some less informed.
        DO they not remember the treaties made with the Christian and Jews even after the death of the prophet such as the treaty of Umar detailing the rights and privileges regarding the conquered people and the Muslims in Jerusalem. This treaty was signed by Umar and Patriarch Sophronius, along with some of the generals of the Muslim armies.

        When the Jews were being persecuted in Christian Europe as part of the purge of the Spainish Inquisition many came e to settle in the Muslim Lands.

        Over the past 100 years, this harmony has changed and has become less tolerant, it is called colonisation.

        Jalal Kassab, Thank you for your comments. I believe that there is still a lot about Islam that you are not familiar about. Do you know the difference of Islam pre- and post- Medina and why? Do you know about the betrayal in Medina and the genocide that occurred there at the time of Muhammad?
        Do you understand the weapons of Taqiyya and Kitman, or do you even know what and why Muhammad abrogated Quranic verses, and do you know the Verse of the Sword, Quran 9:5, actually abrogated 124 verses referring to Peace in the Quran? Or that Jihad, Quran 2:215 is a mandate for all Muslims to obey? Or that the Quran has 109 verses that calls all Muslims to War?
        When you have collated all that, then I welcome your comments on my articles.

      • Mahmood

        Dear author,

        As a Muslim brother, I sincerely advise you ask for forgiveness from Allah, the Almighty, for your highly strange and unprofessional analysis. Brother, please do not be offended. If you wish to write articles on Islam, you should enrol yourself in Islamic university. You will truly be repentful for the psychotic words you preach. May Allah almighty forgive you after you repent and not burn you in hell fire.

        Why do you want to cause trouble, my brother? If the Quran says, ‘If a person kills someone, it is as though he has killed all of mankind’, why do you want to add more words to that and state Christians and Jews etc are an exception? Brother, you know that is a grave sin to change the Quran’s words – this is in one of the very first few pages of the Quran in fact. If you cannot fund an Islamic degree, you can also practice SATs, which is an American system of examining words. Do not worry that it is American, it is used internationally also and it will InshAllah comfort you in its interpretation techniques moving forward. Please, my friend, I am very afraid for you. Oh Allah, please guide our brother to the right path and do not lead him astray, as you say in Surah Fatiha. Oh Allah, please one day if brother marries a Mo’mineen, that is a Christian or Jew, as you state Muslims can do in Surah Bakarah, let brother not kill his wife in the night. Oh Allah, teach brother to compress his fiery temper and remind him as you say in 6:107 that you have not made our brother the non-muslim keeper, nor guardian over them too. Oh Allah, by all means, encourage brother to praise our Iman but let him read the verses the he may have missed somehow when perhaps distracted by worldly possessions, that there is no compulsion on religion (2:256) and that if the people of other religions choose to dispute us, You are very instructive about what to do next and that is to say, `God best knows (the value of) what you do (22.67)’. Praise to thee, God. Oh Allah, please help brother reach and inhale the perfume of paradise by encouraging him to also read and practice the hadith of our beloved Prophet, peace be upon him. For,
        “whoever kills a person who has a truce with the Muslims will never smell the fragrance of Paradise (Saheeh Muslim).” Finally my brother, a stark warning from Abu Dawud’s recording of a hadith from the messenger of Allah (PBUH):

         “Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment.”

        My brother, we fear for you but will not lose hope. Pray in 2/3rds of the night when Allah is listening the most. You should endeavour fasting, my friend, out of Ramadan, and inshAllah, praise Allah, our almighty Allah will forgive you before your life ends. I suggest 4 months fasting this year but maybe you can do it 1 month per season. Oh Allah, let him repent, oh Allah, show your mercy, oh Allah, may he be saved from the burning hellfire once he asks for your forgiveness, oh Allah, let him be saved from eternal burning in the Pits, inshAllah.

        Mahmoud, as you will see, I have approved your post so it can be read by all. I am sorry your views on Quran 5:32 are so narrow and out of context with the rest of the Quran. I hope some day you may see that your views are wrong. You are not the only Muslim with such views, but that is what I expected because your thoughts are all so regimented. Read again what I have written with an open mind and open heart and perhaps you will see things differently. My good wishes to you.

      NovakDjokovic, Thank you. I finally managed (26.10.14) to update my Flash and saw all the videos you have presented. Unfortunately, I conclude that Lesley Hazelton is really an apologist for Muhammad and I disagree with her fundamental views on Islam. I believe she is misguided and rather biased.

  2. Reece

    You have understood it totally wrong because all you know is that one verse and have no wider knowledge. When God says ”we decreed to the children of Israel” he is talking about what he told the Jews to do previously.. because in the Talmud it says:

    ”FOR THIS REASON WAS MAN CREATED ALONE, TO TEACH THEE THAT WHOSOEVER DESTROYS A SINGLE SOUL OF ISRAEL, SCRIPTURE IMPUTES [GUILT] TO HIM AS THOUGH HE HAD DESTROYED A COMPLETE WORLD; AND WHOSOEVER PRESERVES A SINGLE SOUL OF ISRAEL, SCRIPTURE ASCRIBES [MERIT] TO HIM AS THOUGH HE HAD PRESERVED A COMPLETE WORLD”

    So your arguments are invalid.. God was talking about the whole of mankind, but he told the Jews first and he also says in the Quran he has not come to destroy the laws of which was before?

    But!!!
    The Jews turned away from God when they didn’t believe Jesus (peace be upon him) was the messiah.

    And the bible has been corrupted by man, which is proven by the highest Christian scholars, it was changed by Constantine
    and was infiltrated by Paul who was a agent sent by the Romans to destroy the true message of Jesus (peace be upon him)

    Paul was known as Saul before he changed his name. Saul persecuted Christians arresting and murdering them as he went from place to place.

    I pray for you brother.

      reece Murda, thank you for your comments. You should really study what I have posted much closer than you have because you have entirely missed the point. The Quran is full of “dualism” and it is important that you are not misled by only reading one part of the Quran without the “dual” part. Typically like most Muslims you only see the part that suits your arguments.
      Let me quote from Umar ibn Kathir (1301-1373) a foremost Tafsir(interpreter) writer:
      Beginning of Kathir’s quote

      (if anyone killed a person (Muslim) not “in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land” – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) Saving life in this case occurs by not killing a soul that Allah has forbidden (Killing a Believer is Forbidden by Allah but not an infidel.) So this is the meaning of saving the life of all mankind, for whoever forbids killing a soul(a Muslim) without justification, the lives of all people will be saved from him.”
      End of Kathir’s quote.

      There you are! This tafsir by Kathir says when a Muslim is killed it is as if the entire humanity is killed. When an infidel is killed it has no relevance. Similarly, when a Believer’s (i.e. Muslim’s) life is saved it is as if the entire humanity is saved. You see, in the Qur’an and in Islam what matters most is the lives of Muslims and not the lives of infidels.
      Please note: there are at least 18 verses in the Qur’an which ask for the pre-emptive murder of the kafirs (infidels).[Killing of infidels is APPROVED BY ALLAH. Killing of Muslims (Believers, except for murderers and trouble makers) IS FORBIDDEN BY ALLAH.
      That is the dualism you do not seem to understand. You have to learn to be more discerning. Look it up yourself to confirm what I have quoted.

    Surat An-Nisā 4:123 – 125 Paradise is not [obtained] by your wishful thinking nor by that of the People of the Scripture. Whoever does a wrong will be recompensed for it, and he will not find besides Allah a protector or a helper
    If any do deeds of righteousness,- be they male or female – and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them.
    Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For Allah did take Abraham for a friend.

    I do not read what any other man says about a book I just read the book. it says the book is full and complete. it is also said that anything said after is lies. I don’t believe in hadiths. or any scholars understanding of verses because that is proven to cause corruption.

    Surat An-Nisā 4:49 – 50
    Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who claim sanctity for themselves? Nay-but Allah Doth sanctify whom He pleaseth. But never will they fail to receive justice in the least little thing.
    Behold! how they invent a lie against Allah! but that by itself is a manifest sin!

    I have quoted from a book as to what it means its not what my own mind has come up with? Are you trying to say god told the Jews something then switched sides? God made the whole of mankind!!!. it says it was ”decreed upon the children of Israel” meaning told before to the jews.. And it says ”a soul” not a ”Muslim soul”
    -Surat Al-Baqarah 2:6
    Indeed, those who disbelieve – it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them – they will not believe

    Whoever that scholar or whoever he is,(I will not waste my time looking him up) he obviously is not learned and he should not be putting across his views on scriptures because he obviously knows nothing.

    Surat At-Tawbah 9:6 – 7
    If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah; and then escort him to a place of security. That is because they are men without knowledge.
    How can there be for the polytheists a treaty in the sight of Allah and with His Messenger, except for those with whom you made a treaty at al-Masjid al-Haram? So as long as they are upright toward you, be upright toward them. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].

    Surat An-Nisā 4:29 – 31
    O you who have believed, do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.
    And whoever does that in aggression and injustice – then We will drive him into a Fire. And easy it is for Allah
    If you avoid the major sins which you are forbidden, We will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance [into Paradise].

    I can quote a verse that can easily misquoted:

    Surat An-Nisā 4:74 – 76
    ”Let those fight in the cause of Allah Who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah,- whether he is slain or gets victory – Soon shall We give him a reward of great (value)”

    (But it continues)

    And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and for those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help!”
    Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who reject Faith Fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of Satan.

    And another easily misquoted verse

    Surat An-Nisā 4:89 – 90
    ”They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks;-”
    -Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty (of peace), or those who approach you with hearts restraining them from fighting you as well as fighting their own people. If Allah had pleased, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you: Therefore if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (Guarantees of) peace, then Allah Hath opened no way for you (to war against them)

    Surat An-Nisā4:135
    O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.

    Surat An-Nisā4:173
    But to those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, He will give their (due) rewards,- and more, out of His bounty: But those who are disdainful and arrogant, He will punish with a grievous penalty; Nor will they find, besides Allah, any to protect or help them.

    its is said that Muhammed (pbuh) was told by the angel Gabriel that he could go kill the infidels for there crimes against him and the Muslims and Muhammed refused and said he would not kill any of them because then none of there family would ever convert to the right path
    (paraphrasing)

    And jihad means ”struggle”
    Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said ”The greatest Jihad is to battle your own soul, to fight the evil within yourself”

    Surat An-Nisā 4:60 -61
    Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who declare that they believe in the revelations that have come to thee and to those before thee? Their (real) wish is to resort together for judgement (in their disputes) to the Evil One, though they were ordered to reject him. But Satan’s wish is to lead them astray far away.
    When it is said to them: “Come to what Allah hath revealed, and to the Messenger”: Thou seest the Hypocrites avert their faces from thee in disgust.

    Surat An-Nisā 4:171
    O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, “Three”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.

      reecemurda, thank you for your comments. This is not the place for extended discussions so my reply will be very brief. If you wish to discuss your doubts about Islam, try, posting at http://my.telegraph.co.uk/blogs/
      Referring to your quotes, they are all out of context with the whole of the Quran (and Ahadith), and you only quote that which suits your arguments. You have completely neglected taking into consideration of the extensive “abrogations” introduced by Muhammad nullifying the Meccan verses of the Quran but using those obsolete verses to support your arguments. Thus you have either not understood Islamic dualism, or overlooked it unscrupulously for the sake of Taqiyya, attempting to deceive or mislead your opponent. Hence most of your verses carry no currency because it is out of context. Let me illustrate: Your said:
      “And jihad means ”struggle”
      Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said ”The greatest Jihad is to battle your own soul, to fight the evil within yourself””
      But the truth is:
      “Jihad Means ‘Inner Struggle’
      The Myth:

      Islam’s Western apologists sometimes claim that since the Arabic word, Jihad, literally means “fight” or “struggle,” it refers to an “inner struggle” rather than holy war.

      The Truth:

      In Arabic, “jihad” means struggle. In Islam, it means holy war.

      The Quran specifically exempts the disabled and elderly from Jihad (4:95), which would make no sense if the word is being used merely within the context of spiritual struggle. It is also unclear why Muhammad and his Quran would use graphic language, such as smiting fingers and heads from the hands and necks of unbelievers if he were speaking merely of character development.

      With this in mind, Muslim apologists generally admit that there are two meanings to the word, but insist that “inner struggle” is the “greater Jihad,” whereas “holy war” is the “lesser.” In fact, this misconception is based only on an a single hadith that Islamic scholars generally agreed was fabricated.

      By contrast, the most reliable of all Hadith collections is that of Bukhari. Jihad is mentioned over 200 times in reference to the words of Muhammad and each one carries a clear connotation to holy war, with only a handful of possible exceptions (dealing with a woman’s supporting role during a time of holy war).”

      Hence I recommend you study Islam in greater depth.
      AbdullahMuhammad

  4. Reece

    None of the verses were used out of context if you read Surat An-Nisā you’ll will see they are all totally in context.

    And there is 3 meanings of jihad actually.. the word is the same, its just different contexts you use them in.

    It is you who cannot understand that 1400 years ago things were much different than today, people used to ride around with swords as long as your leg, baby girls were buried alive in the sand as soon as they were born.. human sacrifice was out of control.. murdering was out of control And if them so called humans are willing to bury baby girls and sacrifice humans.. Do you think they could be changed by words? if they could and repent then that’s with God but if they cant and still want to make war and kill there is no wrong with killing someone who has killed or will kill..

    Like if someone today pulled a gun out on your family and was about to kill them.. would it be unjust for a policeman to laser dot and snipe them? No because there was no other way out of the situation a innocent life is worth more.

    All of the war verses are used in the context of war.. if the U.S came up with them verses no one would have a problem with them because they are logical? if your at war and someone tries to kill you and you kill them because there was no other choice or way out of the situation then its not your fault.
    But if you kill someone who wants peace, even if they are ”not innocent” then its a great sin.
    even a pagan who sacrifices humans it says if they want peace ” then Allah Hath opened no way for you (to war against them)”

    I am not saying all Muslims are innocent like with most things 99 percent do not follow properly.

    And Christians And Jews were before the quran was revealed, so obviously who do you think had greater armies.

    The quran is about abstaining from your desires and making your soul clean from sin.

    And I do not believe Bukhari at all in my opinion he done what Paul done to Christianity

    Surat Al-Baqarah 2:124
    And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [ Allah ] said, “Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people.” [Abraham] said, “And of my descendants?” [ Allah ] said, “My covenant does not include the wrongdoers.

  5. Bel

    Completely wrong. The word “all man kind” is very clear. Any one who read the Koran should notice usually talk about Muslims or faithfuls or the opposite but in that one it says all man kind that means Muslims Jews Christians Buddhists whatever they are. so stop this game. we respect all religions.

    • mbplee

      agadir, thank you for your comment. This is not the place for an extended debate. You are ignorant of Islam because you are completely out of context of the Koran. It will be only necessssary for me to quote one paragraph that disproves your claims:

      Quran (4:56) – Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise

      That is what Allah has pronounced. I doubt you can dispute it. A Disbeliever (in Islam) can never be an innocent person (or person unjustly killed). Allah Commands that unbelievers must convert or be killed. So it is a just killing if he is a non-believer.

    • mbplee

      Bel, I am not sure if I answered this post of your adequately. I am not sure if you are attempting to be clever, or you are showing me your ignorance (of language). I will post a translation of “Quran 5:32
      [5.32] For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men; and certainly Our apostles came to them with clear arguments, but even after that many of them certainly act extravagantly in the land.”

      Note: “unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land.” This refers to (1) murderers or (2) those who do not accept Allah – infidels. This translation state, “all men” not “all mankind.” It is clear that murderers and infidels are not considered worthy to be included in “all men.”

      Don’t be so gullible, read and try to understand its true meaning.

  6. Bel

    Just to clarify Islam equal terrorism as you said or incite to kill Jews if that is right you wont find any one of them alive today. Muslims never killed them as Hitler did instead they protected them in Andalusia and all Arabic countries till they FORCED to leave by MOSAD, if you dont know 8% of Israelis there origin is Morocco. We are all human we are all against terror and tolerance should be our religion.

  7. maliurj

    The author of this article is an idiot. Yes I said it and I am a Muslim. First of all, Prophet Muhammad salalahu alahi wa salam lived with his grandfather Abu Taalib who died a kafr. He loved his uncle dearly and would not have hurt him in any form or fashion. He even prayed to Allah subhana wa Taala for forgiveness on behalf of his uncle. Secondly, many reverts to Islam have relatives that are not Muslim but are making duaa to Allah subhana wa Taala to guide them to the deen of Islam. These non-Muslims respect Islam and some are even taking steps towards learning about Islam. If we were to randomly kill non-Muslims to whom Prophet Muhammad salalahu alahi wa salam was also sent, then we would be going against the mandates of Allah subhana wa Taala. What about our mothers whom we are strictly instructed to honor but who have not yet accepted Islam due to earlier indoctrination of christian beliefs etc…should we stab them to death because they have not accepted Al Islam according to our schedule? Come on dude, your common sense is severely lacking. Remember Prophet Lut AS who lived amongst the people who committed the vilest act upon men? He did not wage war against them! There are myriad of people who never received the proper teachings of Al Islam and therefore Allah subhana wa Taala will not allow them to become victims by the hands of Muslims before they receive proper knowledge. Didn’t Allah subhana wa Taala grant Firaun an oportunity to repent from shirk? He is Al Khaliq! Every human being born to mankind is a Muslim until they are led astray. Hence, Prophet Muhammad salalahu alahi wa salam was sent to call them back to the fitrah of Al Islam. There are over 7 billion people on earth, with approximately 1.5 of that population being Muslim. You do the math! Are you saying that we are supposed to wage war on over 6 billion people randomly without fulfilling our responsibility to educate them about the deen of Al Islam? Do you really believe that we are not going to be held responsible for failing to fulfill this responsibility? Wake up dude!

    • mbplee

      maliurj, Thank you for your post. Note that I HAVE APPROVED it. This article was posted taking into consideration its “total context” of the whole Quran. Muhammad was a simple illiterate Arab and so the Quran was written in a simple literal language so all could understand its meanings. I try to understand it as Allah would have wanted me to understand it. “I do not attempt to “justify” Allah’s words or message.” That would be blasphemy!
      So when Allah says:
      Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
      Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-”

      I believe that Allah meant it and makes no exceptions for uncles or mothers or any other special loved ones who are not of the faith. If he did, he would have said so in the Quran. I cannot find such exceptions.
      I am fully awake and aware of things Islamic. Are you, muliurj? Looks like you may have got the wrong end of the stick at times.

  8. Houman

    With all due respect to authors. As a simple practicing muslim that has read the quran from start to end. It is very easy to understand meanings of words when you see the pattern it was conveyed. It starts with a reminder towards a certain thought or act. Then a history lesson relating to previous part and finally a prayer to help one accomplish that first part.

    In this regard all the parts that mention another group if people are lessons and examples of the first part. It is simple so that an uneducated man that hears it will understand it on his own and not need a highly educated interpretor to explain the words.

    It simply states do not kill an innocent of murder or other harms to man and try to save lives. Infidel or not they are not to be killed under that simple rule.

    As to the “duality” of verses they are simply red lines that Islam allows to change things tonsave ones life. Do not eat pork. But if you are starving its ok and so On. At the end the message is clear. Be grateful and give back.

    In no way it is my intention to insult any one. It has been said, it is the sign of intelligence to be able to contemplate an idea without accepting it”. I am a science scholar and a believer.

    • mbplee

      Human, Thank you for your comments. In your attempt to be polite, you have not made yourself clear but I am assuming that you are rebutting my comments by your remarks:
      “It simply states do not kill an innocent of murder or other harms to man and try to save lives. Infidel or not they are not to be killed under that simple rule.”

      To me this indicates that you are selecting words out of context of the Quran to glorify “your biased concept” of Islam(taqiyya). That you do not appreciate the totality of the message of Allah in the whole Quran. Let me quote a few verses from the Quran to show you why you are deceitfully out of context and have isolated your verse with the Quran.

      Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people (infidels) till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

      Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people (infidels) 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.”

      Muslim (1:30) – “The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people(infidel) so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”

      Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.”

      Bukhari (52:73) – “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords’.”

      Then in case Women and children are considered “innocent” I quote:

      Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

      Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings. [The Prophet makes it very clear that a non-Muslim (infidel) is a legitimate target for death. It also implies that only Muslims can be innocent, never infidels. This is a point missed by most apologists of Islam.]

      I hope you will attempt to study Islam in its full context and not take out extracts that could be misleading.

  9. ZAKIR NHUSSAIN

    FOLLOWING ARE CORRECT QUOTES FROM QURAN WHICH PROMOTES HUMANITY..

    This is a question that often comes up in critiques of Islam, especially in light of recent political events. It is incumbent on Muslims to respond to and clear misconceptions stemming from Islam’s perceived stance on violence and interfaith relations.

    The Importance of Context

    The word ‘context’ has two dictionary meanings:

    • The parts of a written or spoken statement that precede or follow a specific word or passage, usually influencing its meaning or effect.

    • The set of circumstances or facts that surround a particular event, situation, etc.

    Any discussion on Qur’anic verses that refer to violence would be meaningless, without a study of the surrounding context. Before we study the verses in question, therefore, let us examine this issue in a wider perspective:

    The Sanctity of Life

    The Glorious Qur’an says:

    “…take not life, which God hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.”

    [Al-Qur’an 6:151]

    Islam considers all life forms as sacred. However, the sanctity of human life is accorded a special place. The first and the foremost basic right of a human being is the right to live. The Glorious Qur’an says:

    “…if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.”

    [Al-Qur’an 5:32]

    Such is the value of a single human life, that the Qur’an equates the taking of even one human life unjustly, with killing all of humanity .

    The Verses of War

    The words that often causes consternation among those unfamiliar with Islam, is:

    “…and slay them wherever ye catch them…”

    The truth is that this is only part of the verse 191 of Chapter 2 of the Qur’an. Let us read the verses 190 to 191 in order to get a complete picture:

    “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.”

    [Al-Qur’an 2:190-191]

    It is a well-known fact of Islamic history, that fighting against aggressors was prohibited during the first thirteen years of the Prophet’s mission. After Muslims migrated to Madina , the verses above were revealed to enable the community to fight in self-defense. The verses that follow clearly indicate Islam’s prohibition on aggression and inclination towards peace:

    “But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression.”

    [Al-Qur’an 2:192-193]

    The verses above specifically refer to fighting against oppression and in defense of religious freedom as the Glorious Qur’an says:

    “Let there be no compulsion in religion”

    [Al-Qur’an 2:256]

    Fair-dealing towards all

    When read in context, the above verses do not even remotely suggest an exhortation for Muslims to be vicious or hateful towards people of other faiths. Far from this, the Qur’an actually requires that Muslims conduct themselves with fairness and dignity in all matters, and especially in regard to interfaith relations, as indicated by the following verse:

    “Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

    [Al-Qur’an 60:8]

    • mbplee

      ZakirHussain, Thank you for raising these misconceptions about the interpretations of the Quran and suggesting that due consideration be given to the context from which the phrase was derived. Please let me correct the misconceptions of most Muslims of the following:

      (1) ZH: “Let there be no compulsion in religion” [Al-Qur’an 2:256]

      mbplee: Your quote is totally out of context and thus misleading. The complete text must always be read as a couplet:

      Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error; whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. Allah is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light. Of those who reject faith, the patrons are the Evil Ones: from light they will lead them forth into the depths of darkness. They will be companions of the fire to dwell therein (Hell Fires) (for ever).
      Surah 2:256–57

      As I read the couplet, the only choice is between Allah and Shaitan. That is not freedom of choice or religion, it is a compulsion of either choosing Allah or burning in Hell. So the phrase is totally misleading. Because the Quran continues:
      Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

      So any doubts that Islam will tolerate any other god than Allah is totally misguided. There is total compulsion in Islam.

      (2) ZakirHussain:“…take not life, which God hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.”

      [Al-Qur’an 6:151]

      Islam considers all life forms as sacred. However, the sanctity of human life is accorded a special place. The first and the foremost basic right of a human being is the right to live.

      mbplee: The key words are, “which Allah hath made sacred.” These are clearly Muslims he has made sacred. Because Allah has said:
      Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them (disbelievers of Islam) wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing…
      but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”
      It is clear that Islam does NOT consider disbelievers of Islam as lives that are sacred. This verse makes it very clear, Allah does not consider non-Muslims lives as equal to that of Muslim lives. So this is another popular Islamic misconception that must be destroyed.

      ZakirHussain: “Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just. [Al-Qur’an 60:8]

      mbplee: And yet within the full context of the Quran we find the following verses that contradict Quran 60:8. Which part of the Quran is believable?

      Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

      Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

      Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

      Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

      Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

      Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, who were led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. This is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

      Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

      Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

      Conclusion: Muslims have been misled in their readings of the Quran and cannot even see the obvious. Let’s hope some Muslims will study in greater depth their own scriptures and get the true meanings of the Quran instead of some perverted interpretations.

  10. Beau Bassett

    Muslims will continue to kill so long as there quaran is in there hands. When the quaran is burned and every mosque torn down then bombings, shootings, beheadings, will not happen in the order they have done for the past 1500 years. For what I am doing is blasphemy to the prophet and to any willing muslims they would wish death upon me because I am an unbeliever, ask why there is such little religious freedom in the middle east? because unbelieveing results in death, and nobody wants death upon themselves. Many gay muslims do so in the most private of places and when found to have sinned they often are thrown from buildings or beheaded, just like what ISIL does. Many Iranians and kurds are tolerable muslims but true sunni muslims are a cancer that has caused great harm to the advancment of humans on earth and earth as a whole.

    • mbplee

      BeauBassett, Yes, all you have said is correct and true. Because Islam discourages independent inquiry most Muslims only know the interpretations that their Imams wish them to have. Most of the times, such interpretations are out of context of the Quranic teachings and misleading and wrong. Hence Muslims have only a regimented outlook on the literal immutable word of Allah. Yes, the ideology belongs to the culture of the 7th century and is no longer applicable in modern society.

      • Azzam Khan (@azzamk10)

        You are a joke sir!. How do you know what ‘Muhammads intended meaning was?

      • mbplee

        AzzamKhan,because I read the whole of the Quran in its proper context. Not out of context like so many Muslims do. You have to understand Islamic Dualism.

    • mbplee

      Sorry, unable to respond.

  11. John O'Meara

    I would like to ask mbplee whether his belief/stance is that, as one who reads the Quran accurately, he wishes to see the extermination of non-believers, or whether it is the opposite: that by presenting ‘a true reading of the Quran’ he is trying to discredit Islam and discourage people from following it.

    • mbplee

      JohnO’Meera, Muslims like to present Islam in a favourable light and to do this they often practice Taqiyya (Lies) or quote statements completely out of context to mislead and deceive non-Believers and often themselves included. As the Quran contains the immutable words of Allah, it is often not possible to argue against Allah’s pronouncements. As I can only use the Quran as authentic support for my arguments, I have to establish if those statements are “out of context and thus misleading.” I take the Quran as a Whole and that all concepts are inter-related within the Quran and that the correct concept can be found by evaluating all the verses as one.

      For example when Muslims claim that “there is no compulsion in Islam” but another command in the Quran says: “But the god of you all is the One Allah.there is no god but He: all things He comprehends in His knowledge. (Surah Ta Ha, 98)” So both cannot be right.The latter verse must override the previous. These are the misconceptions in Islam that need to be clarified.

      No, John O’Meera, I am not trying to discredit Islam, I am attempting to show the erroneous interpretations adopted by Muslims of their own Holy Quran, because some Imam choose to distort the truth either out of ignorance or for malicious purposes.

      Only by knowing the truth can we make good judgements for ourselves. I will always try to dispute Taqiyya (lies) of Islam because I have made the effort to learn about Islam.

      • John O'Meara

        Thank you for the clarification. I’m not qualified to argue interpretations of the Quran, but I suspect that truth won’t emerge from textual analysis; rather, I think it will be found in how people behave towards each other, and from this perspective I find, thankfully, that truth is widespread amongst people of all beliefs and none.

  12. Salaman

    You are all a disgrace to Islam. You have misinterpreted the Quran and the teachings
    Of our Holy Prophet Saw to benefit your own violent minds and hatred to those who do not fit in with your beliefs. The Prophet Saw was a man of peace who forbid the harming of people in any form lest it be you are under attack. One day you will leave this Earth and Allah will show you the truth. Allah is the Most Merciful, only HE can judge and decide who lives and dies. You are not a prophet or God to try to brainwash people into believing that anyone who isn’t a Muslim has no worth to their life. You should make Duaa and ask Allah to open your heart and mind to the truth instead of letting the shaytan convince you of these hatred beliefs. Focus on yourselves instead of preaching to people. May Allah have mercy and forgiveness on all of you for twisting our beautiful religion.

    • mbplee

      Salaman, Thank you for your views. Unfortunately you are totally OUT OF CONTEXT OF THE QURAN and thus you have been misguided. Pray to Allah to give you eyes that can see or a mind that can perceive clearly. Bless you!

  13. John O'Meara

    Just to clarify, I don’t myself think that mpb lee is an accurate reader of the Quran, because I suspect that the Quran should not be read in a rationalistic/fault-finding/’Western’ way – that this is to miss the point; rather it is in ‘experiencing’ it (and importantly in the original language) that people find valuable truths. I also believe that Islamic scholarship has paid a lot of attention to historical context, which Mr. Lee largely misses out. But I am no expert, and don’t want to be in a prolonged debate. I am just grateful that the area in which I live is richer and safer as a result of the Muslims who live here as well.

    • mbplee

      John O’Meara, I am so pleased that you feel richer and safer amongst your Muslim neighbours. May you always enjoy such confidence. But we live in a free country and we are blessed with Freedom of Thought and Views. I have expressed mine as comprehensively as possible for others to accept or reject as they please. I have spent many years studying Islam and I feel confident I know what I am talking about. It is up to you to accept or reject it.

  14. Mahmood

    Dear author,

    As a Muslim brother, I sincerely advise you ask for forgiveness from Allah, the Almighty, for your highly strange and unprofessional analysis. Brother, please do not be offended. If you wish to write articles on Islam, you should enrol yourself in Islamic university. You will truly be repentful for the psychotic words you preach. May Allah almighty forgive you after you repent and not burn you in hell fire.

    Why do you want to cause trouble, my brother? If the Quran says, ‘If a person kills someone, it is as though he has killed all of mankind’, why do you want to add more words to that and state Christians and Jews etc are an exception? Brother, you know that is a grave sin to change the Quran’s words – this is in one of the very first few pages of the Quran in fact. If you cannot fund an Islamic degree, you can also practice SATs, which is an American system of examining words. Do not worry that it is American, it is used internationally also and it will InshAllah comfort you in its interpretation techniques moving forward. Please, my friend, I am very afraid for you. Oh Allah, please guide our brother to the right path and do not lead him astray, as you say in Surah Fatiha. Oh Allah, please one day if brother marries a Mo’mineen, that is a Christian or Jew, as you state Muslims can do in Surah Bakarah, let brother not kill his wife in the night. Oh Allah, teach brother to compress his fiery temper and remind him as you say in 6:107 that you have not made our brother the non-muslim keeper, nor guardian over them too. Oh Allah, by all means, encourage brother to praise our Iman but let him read the verses the he may have missed somehow when perhaps distracted by worldly possessions, that there is no compulsion on religion (2:256) and that if the people of other religions choose to dispute us, You are very instructive about what to do next and that is to say, `God best knows (the value of) what you do (22.67)’. Praise to thee, God. Oh Allah, please help brother reach and inhale the perfume of paradise by encouraging him to also read and practice the hadith of our beloved Prophet, peace be upon him. For,
    “whoever kills a person who has a truce with the Muslims will never smell the fragrance of Paradise (Saheeh Muslim).” Finally my brother, a stark warning from Abu Dawud’s recording of a hadith from the messenger of Allah (PBUH):

     “Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment.”

    My brother, we fear for you but will not lose hope. Pray in 2/3rds of the night when Allah is listening the most. You should endeavour fasting, my friend, out of Ramadan, and inshAllah, praise Allah, our almighty Allah will forgive you before your life ends. I suggest 4 months fasting this year but maybe you can do it 1 month per season. Oh Allah, let him repent, oh Allah, show your mercy, oh Allah, may he be saved from the burning hellfire once he asks for your forgiveness, oh Allah, let him be saved from eternal burning in the Pits, inshAllah.

  15. Gul Khan Mohmand

    The preacher (now a days) , with his wealth of anecdote and wordy legend. Little has to tell if truth, for all his fine grandiloquence.

    Dear Brother or sister or whatever!!!

    All the verses of Quran you quoted was wonderful hard work of yours to find all these and post it..

    Now let me tell you to learn something.. Quran was completed in 23 years :D not in one night or on week or month.. You should have read the begining of Islam from 1 Man (Prophet Muhammad SAW) and how Islam spread and the whole scenario of Fights they had with Arab pagans … Not christian or Jewish

    Many verses in which you tried to show that Quran in which ALLAH asked muslim to kill non believers it was the time when 313 first Muslim were surrounded by 10K non believers and were about to get killed. some of the revealations of verses that you mentioned were at the time when Pagan Arab wanted to kill Prophet Muhammad…SAW

    if muslim were asked to kill non believers… ISIS should not cross thousand of kilometers in Paris to kill innocent people instead of going few hundred kilometer in israel to kill Jewish …

    all i would do is to ask for forgiveness for you…

    • mbplee

      Gul Khan Mohmand: Thank you for your comments which I have approved for all to see.
      Unfortunately I do not believe that the Quran was written in 23 years nor was Muhammad the originator of the Quran. I believe that:

      (1) Many don’t know the Koran was an enlarged, revised version of the ancient Word of the Goddess Kore, revered by Mohammed’s tribe, the Koreshites (Children of Kore), who guarded her shrine at Mecca.

      The original writing was done long before Mohammed’s time by holy imams, a word related to Semitic imp, “mother.”

      (2) It was said they took the scriptures from a prototype that existed in heaven from the beginning of eternity, “Mother of the Book” – i.e., the Goddess herself, wearing the Book of Fate on her breast as Mother Tiamat wore the Tablets of Destiny. Sometimes the celestial Koran was called the ***Preserved Tablet.

      (3) There was some resemblance between this and other legendary books of divine origin, such as the ***Ur-text, ***the Book of Thoth and the ***Emerald Tablet of Hermes. As in the case of the Judeo-Christian Bible, the Koran was much rewritten to support new patriarchal laws and to obliterate the figures of the Goddess and her priestesses.

      *****14.1 LAUH MAHFOOZ: The tablet that is protected from any alterations.

      *****14.2 UMM-UL-KITAAB: Because it is the collection of all the Laws, rules and orders of Allah.

      *****14.3 IMAAMUM MUBEEN: Because everything is already written in it.

      *****14.4 KITAABUM MAKNOON: Because its contents are not known to anyone except Allah. [2]

      *****The Preserved Tablet is the Book in which Allaah had written the predestination of His Creation before He created them.

      Allaah Says (what means): {Do you not know that Allaah knows what is in the heaven and earth? Indeed, that is in a Record.}[Quran 22:70] Ibn ‘Atiyyah said: “This (i.e. the Record) is the Preserved Tablet.” Moreover, the Prophet said: “First of all, there was nothing but Allaah and (then He created His throne). His Throne was over the water, and He wrote everything in the Book (in the heaven) and created water, the heavens and the earth.” Ibn Hajar said: “What is meant with Reminder here is the Preserved Tablet.”

      *****As regards the location of this Book, it is in the seventh heaven, as stated by Ash-Shawkaani from some scholars from among our righteous predecessors. However, we are not aware of any authentic narration which clarifies when it was exactly created. *****However, it is confirmed that the Prophet said: “Allaah has decreed the destiny of all the creatures 50,000 years before He created the heavens and the earth.” [Muslim]

      Guy Khan, from the above, it would seem that there is a lot about the Quran that you did not even know. So go and do some deep research to find out more about the mythical origins of the Quran.

  16. Muhammad Barkaat Hussain

    Dear mbplea
    I sincerely wish and pray that Almighty God show all of us His right path. The whole world is one community, created by only one God. People usually differ out of mutual jealously and they have divided themselves in different religions and sects. Every religion and sects claim they they are on Right Path. To find out which one is authentic, please spare some time of your busy life and ask directly from Almighty God with sincerity, O God if you are there please guide me towards your Right Path and keep on asking till you find the response. Definitely you will be guided towards His Right Path.

    • mbplee

      Muhammad Barkaat Hussain, thank you for your comments. Some day perhaps you may find the answers about Allah and his origins and perhaps realise that you are in fact praying to Allal-Hubal the original Allah of the Kaaba. There are unfortunately no “Right Path” to god, because the “Right Path” indicates that others are “Wrong Paths” hence you have just spelt out “Religious Supremacy” a sure path to death and destruction. THINK ON THAT MUHAMMAD. Let me end by quoting from my writings:

      “Supremacist Faiths Kill Others but It is Based on Mythological Beliefs

      Historical and archaeological evidence has proven that the Abrahamic Faiths, in fact all Faiths of this world, are based on mythical legends of imaginative and pious people of ancient times. The legendary figures of Adam and Eve and Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, Jesus, and YHWH, Christian God, Allah, were mythical figures. They never existed and no one has ever proven that they existed. Thus any supremacist ideologies of any such faiths are man-created exclusive doctrines and does not belong to the Divine world. So today’s savagery and killings are based on the absolute supremacy of their god is nothing but false doctrines of that faith. If only the pious could be made to see and accept that faiths are based on myths, the world would be a better place to live in.”
