Leviticus 26:1 Nothing to do with Kabah in Mecca.

Leviticus 26:1
Nothing to do with Kabah in Mecca.

Leviticus 26:1 King James Version (KJV)
26 YE SHALL MAKE YOU NO IDOLS nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.

1. YE SHALL MAKE YOU NO IDOLS
No IDOLS ever exist after the taking back of Mecca by Prophet Muhammad pbuh. No IDOLS ever exist in Islamic land including Madinah the city of Prophet Muhammad pbuh. No IDOL ever exist in the home of Muslims.
IDOLATORS and IDOLATRY condemn by Allah. Allah says it is SATAN’S DOING.
AL-QUR’AN 5:90 (Asad) O YOU who have attained to faith! Intoxicants, and games of chance, and IDOLATROUS PRACTICES, and the divining of the future are but a LOATHSOME EVIL OF SATAN’S DOING:’shun it, then, so that you might attain to a happy state!
AL-QUR’AN (Asad) AND, LO, [thus] spoke Abraham unto his father Azar: “TAKEST THOU IDOLS FOR GODS? Verily, I see that thou and thy people HAVE OBVIOUSLY GONE ASTRAY!”  Read more of this post

Whenever you read the Quran, seek refuge with God from SATAN THE OUTCAST

When you hear they claim Allah is Satan just show to them:

Sura:

16:98

What does Islam say about Rape? [Part 2]

by  • DECEMBER 26, 2014


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Kaleef K. Karim

This topic comes up frequently in the media. Whenever a person’s name begins with Omar or Ahmed (or any other Muslim name for that matter), they portray it as if the religion sanctions it as such. They do not care if the perpetrator has never practised their faith. As long as they can stir up more hatred towards Islam and Muslims, they have achieved their satanic goals, in demonizing the Muslim community.

The aim of this article is to refute the claims made by critics that ‘Islamic Law does not punish rapists’. Moreover, I have touched upon this topic before – you can read it here.

The following is an excellent excerpt on how the perpetrators of rape were dealt with in the lifetime of Prophet Muhammed (p) and the Companions. It is written by Islamic scholar Dr. Mufti Allie Haroon Sheikh (May God reward him for his efforts). Read more of this post

What does Islam say about Rape? [Part 1]

by  • DECEMBER 30, 2013


Kaleef K. Karim

One of the misconceptions towards Islam is that a rape victim gets punished, while the rapist gets unpunished and can walk away free. It is assumed by some that men in Islam can commit rape with impunity. Another lie anti-Muslim propagandists spread is that a victim who has been raped has to produce four witnesses in order for the rapist to get convicted and punished. Critics have never produced any evidence, either from the Quran or Hadith anywhere indicating that there has to be four eye-witnesses for a rapist to get punished. The only time when there has to be four eye-witnesses needed is for adultery, and this is practically impossible to convict anyone with.

The Prophet (p) stoned a man who had raped a woman. This is reported in Jami` at-Tirmidhi. The chapter of the narration goes like, “woman who is forced To commit adultery” i.e., rape:

“A women went out during the time of the Prophet to go to Salat, but she was caught by a man and he had relations with her, so she screamed and he left. Then a man came across her and she said: ‘That man has done this and that to me’, then she came across a group of Emigrants (Muhajirin) and she said: ‘That man did this and that to me.’ They went to get the man she thought had relations with her, and they brought him to her. She said: ‘Yes, that’s him.’ So they brought him to the Messenger of Allah, and when he ordered that he be stoned, the man who had relations with her, said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I am the one who had relations with her.’ So he said to her: ‘Go, for Allah has forgiven you.’ Then he said some nice words to the man (who was brought). And he said to the man who had relations with her: ‘Stone him.’ Then he said: ‘He has repented a repentance that, if the inhabitants of Al-Madinah had repented with, it would have been accepted from them.’” (Jami’ at-Tirmidhi volume 3, Book 15, Hadith 1454 [Hadith is Hasan – Darrusalaam])

Quran 9:5 – Sword Verse

by  • MARCH 4, 2014


Kaleef K. Karim

Whenever critics bring verses of the Quran to demonstrate that Islam is violent, that it sanctions Muslims to kill non-Muslims (as claimed by them), they do a cut and paste of a verse and try to hide its context. They don’t show the previous and the verses after, what it actually says. Take for example this passage,

“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” – Quran 9:5

‘Holy Bible’ Allows Lying – Deception?

by  • JANUARY 22, 2015


Kaleef K. Karim

Note: This is article is by no means to disrespect Christian or Judaic brethren/sisters or their Faith. I only endeavoured to write this article because of some extremist Christians and Jews who charge the Islamic faith with deception – that Islam as a religion sanctions lying in all circumstances, a claim which has no backing from Islamic scripture. I have already responded to these claims in the following Link: Response To ‘Taqiyya’ Deception – Lying.

I have carried out a thorough examination on verses in the Old Testament and New Testament on whether lying is allowed. The verses I encountered shows that deception and lying is permitted in certain situations. The circumstances in which the verses show that one can utter falsehood are the following:

– Lying in order to save innocent lives from being killed
– Using deception in war so as to get the upper hand
– Lying in order to conceal your motives
– Lying so one can escape persecution
– Deceiving so you don’t get harmed
– Advancing the Christian faith by means of deception Read more of this post

Response To ‘Taqiyya’ Deception – Lying

by  • JANUARY 24, 2015


Kaleef K. Karim

Oft-repeated claims by critics spout that Islam allows lying in ‘all circumstances’. They further say that Islam allows their followers to lie to take advantage of non-believers and infiltrate high governmental positions. These claims are false. When I read these comments in some of the websites, I didn’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for the gullible folks who believe such rubbish.

Related Article:
‘Holy Bible’ Allows Lying – Deception

For those who make these allegations, their method to convince their gullible followers is by quoting a verse here and there from the Qur’an, and then misquote scholarly statements by deliberately leaving out the conditions when lying is permissible in rare circumstances. By doing this, they present this to ignorant folk, saying “here, you see Islam sanctions lying to non-believers in all circumstances”

In actual reality, when we examine all these Quranic verses and Hadiths, in none of them is there any mention that one is allowed to lie to non-Muslims.. Nor is there any mention or indication that a Muslim is allowed to take advantage of disbelievers – these are claims made by crazy deluded Islamophobes who have no support from the Quran or Hadith.

Quran 8:12 – ‘I will Cast Terror Into the Hearts Of Those Who Disbelieve. Therefore Strike Off Their Heads’

by  • SEPTEMBER 29, 2014


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.

And

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.”

Debunking The Myth That The Quran Endorses Violence

by  • NOVEMBER 8, 2014

Kaleef K. Karim

It is astonishing to see how some extremists love to cherry-pick verses out of the Quran in order to support their conclusion that Islam endorses violence against the innocent. Sadly, the ignorant, bigoted folk spew this further to the masses that Islam is a religion of violence. Let’s be clear – Muslims are never ordered to fight against the innocent. Neither the Quran nor the Hadith endorse violence against the innocent. However, as I have examined in many of verses in their historical context, the Quran does allow people to fight back in self-defence, in order to repel oppression, persecution, and tyranny.
