ALLAH IN ARAB, INDONESIAN, MALTESES CHRISTIANS AND MIZRAHI JEWS BIBLE MOON GOD?

Bismillah.

Have you ever read or heard a claim by Christians that “Allah is a moon god?”

This stupidity spread first by a pastor named ROBERT MOREY with all of proofs and documents he can offer in his articles.

Isn’t it a stupidity when you find a Pastor who DO NOT KNOW that almost all Christians in Arabian Peninsula call their God by the name ALLAH?

In fact, not only that, let us learn from WIKIPEDIA about ALLAH.

—————————————————————————–

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allah

Allah (English pronunciation: /ˈælə/ or /ˈɑːlə/Arabicالله‎ AllāhIPA: [ʔalˤˈlˤɑːh] ( )) is the Arabic word for God (al ilāh, iliterally “the God”).[1][2][3] The word has cognates in other Semitic languages, including Alah in AramaicʾĒl in Canaanite and Elohim in Hebrew.[4]

It is used mainly by Muslims to refer to God in Islam,[5] but it has also been used by Arab Christians since pre-Islamic times.[6] It is also often, albeit not exclusively, used byBábistsBahá’ísIndonesian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews

————————————————————————-

So it is clear. The word ALLAH used also by  Arab Christians, Indonesian Christians, Malteses Christians and Mizrahi Jews.

Easy now. When you read this kind of claim, what do you have to do?

Don’t trouble your self to proof anything from our side. This is the SHORT CUT. Just show them the:  THE OPENING of ARABIC BIBLE (GENESIS).

الأصحَاحُ الأَوَّلُ 

1فِي الْبَدْءِ خَلَقَ اللهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ. 2وَكَانَتِ الأَرْضُ خَرِبَةً وَخَالِيَةً، وَعَلَى وَجْهِ الْغَمْرِ ظُلْمَةٌ، وَرُوحُ اللهِ يَرِفُّ عَلَى وَجْهِ الْمِيَاهِ. 3وَقَالَ اللهُ: «لِيَكُنْ نُورٌ»، فَكَانَ نُورٌ. 4وَرَأَى اللهُ النُّورَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. وَفَصَلَ اللهُ بَيْنَ النُّورِ وَالظُّلْمَةِ. 5وَدَعَا اللهُ النُّورَ نَهَارًا، وَالظُّلْمَةُ دَعَاهَا لَيْلاً. وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا وَاحِدًا.6وَقَالَ اللهُ: «لِيَكُنْ جَلَدٌ فِي وَسَطِ الْمِيَاهِ. وَلْيَكُنْ فَاصِلاً بَيْنَ مِيَاهٍ وَمِيَاهٍ». 7فَعَمِلَ اللهُ الْجَلَدَ، وَفَصَلَ بَيْنَ الْمِيَاهِ الَّتِي تَحْتَ الْجَلَدِ وَالْمِيَاهِ الَّتِي فَوْقَ الْجَلَدِ. وَكَانَ كَذلِكَ. 8وَدَعَا اللهُ الْجَلَدَ سَمَاءً. وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا ثَانِيًا.

From book: Cultures of the Jews: A New History
http://www.randomhouse.com/book/13331/cultures-of-the-jews-by-david-biale

“Thus, when Jews wrote in Arabic, they ordinarily referred to God as “ALLAH” and to the pulpit as minbar (later distorted to almemar in Sephardic usage). They often referred to the leader of prayers as imam, to the Torah as qur’an (though the Hebrew word Torah exists in classical Arabic in the form taura), to rabbinic traditions as hadith, and to the halakhic practice as sunna”.

BEHOLD! SEE HOW THE ANGER OF OLD TESTAMENT’S GOD TOWARD PEOPLE AGAINST MONOTHEISM.

Bismillah.

Non-Muslims (mostly Christians)  happily pointed at the verses of Al-Qur’an and claim them as VIOLENT. Not only all the verses they claim mostly related to WAR situation, such commands in verses also exist in Old Testament.

BEHOLD! See the ANGER of GOD (Yahweh) toward people who against MONOTHEISM (include IDOL WORSHIPER).

Ezekiel 23:48-49  48‘Thus I will make lewdness cease from the land, that all women may be admonished and not commit lewdness as you have done. 49Your lewdness will be requited upon you, and you will bear the penalty of worshiping your idols; thus you will know that I am the Lord GOD.'”

Isaiah 42:8 I am Yahweh; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols 

2 Chronicles 15:12  and whoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, man or woman.

Deuteronomy 17:2-5   2“If there is found in your midst, in any of your towns, which the LORD your God is giving you, a man or a woman who does what is evil in the sight of the LORD your God, by transgressing His covenant, 3and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the heavenly host, which I have not commanded, 4and if it is told you and you have heard of it, then you shall inquire thoroughly. Behold, if it is true and the thing certain that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, 5then you shall bring out that man or that woman who has done this evil deed to your gatesthat is, the man or the woman, and you shall stone them to death.

Hosea 8: 4-6   4They set up kings without my consent;they choose princes without my approval. With their silver and goldthey make idols for themselves to their own destruction. 5Samaria, throw out your calf-idol!  My anger burns against them. How long will they be incapable of purity?6They are from Israel!This calf—a metalworker has made it;it is not God.It will be broken in pieces,that calf of Samaria.

Numbers 25:2-4   who invited them to the sacrifices to their gods. The people ate the sacrificial meal and bowed down before these gods. So Israel yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor. And the Lord’s anger burned against them. The Lord said to Moses, “Take all the leaders of these people, kill them and expose them in broad daylight before theLord, so that the Lord’s fierce anger may turn away from Israel.”

Deuteronomy 4:25  After you have had children and grandchildren and have lived in the land a long time—if you then become corrupt and make any kind of idol, doing evil in the eyes of the Lord your God and arousing his anger,

Deuteronomy 6:14-16  14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; 15 for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land. 16 Do not put theLord your God to the test as you did at Massah.

 

REFUTING CLAIM SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET IN CAVE (not GABRIEL).

Bismillah.

In debate forums, you will find non-Muslims (mostly Christians) attacking us by claiming SATAN INSPIRED MUHAMMAD IN HIRA CAVE. They claim, it’s not Gabriel but satan appeared in the form of Gabriel. I’ve experienced this in debate forums at least twice.

This is what I found in Youtube comment.

Godless Muslim, I have worse news for you.  Not only was it NOT the angel Gabriel who visited Muhammad in the Hira cave.  It was SATAN who visited Muhammad in the Hira cave.  Have fun in HELL, Godless Muslim.  You will meet Muhammad there!”

This kind of claim comes nothing but from people who DO NOT UNDERSTAND ISLAM AND NEVER READ AL-QUR’AN AT ALL.

If you find this situation, first of all ask them about them the  NATURE of SATAN.

This is SATAN from Wikipedia: Satan (Hebrew: שָּׂטָן satan, “adversary,”[1]) is a term, later a character appearing in the texts of the Abrahamic religions[2][3] who personifies evil and temptation, and is known as the deceiver that leads humanity astray. The term is often applied to an angel who fell out of favor with God, seducing humanity into the ways of sin, and who now rules over the fallen world.

One important character of satan according to Christianity : “The Devil and his demons are portrayed as able to possess and control humans

Now we can ask them:”HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR SATAN TO SEDUCE, POSSES AND CONTROL MUSLIMS WHEN:

1. DRUGS /ALCOHOL IN ISLAM IS PROHIBITED.

Look what I found in absolutebiblestudy.com: “At a certain point, a person who drinks alcohol in excess can and will become possessed with this spirit of leviathan. It is the trickiest spirit Satan has.”

“God tells us that the person who drinks is deceived. The adversary starts off people very slowly regarding addictions. No one, in their heart, wants to become an addict of any type. Satan deceives and lures a person into his trap.”

Now, if satan inspired the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) how is it possible DRUGS / ALCOHOLISM prohibited in Islam? How is it satan inspired something that make people away from their trap? How is it possible for satan to prefent people from DRUG ADDICTION?

Sura 5:90-91:“O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful.” / “Satan only wants to cause between you animosity and hatred through intoxicants and gambling and to avert you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So will you not desist?”

From the HADITHS: Tens of  hadiths about intoxicant, but these are small part of them.

   1.  Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) said; “Whatever intoxicates in a greater quantity is also unlawful in its smaller quantity.” (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood and Ibn Majah)  

   2. Umme Salmah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) prohibited every intoxicant and Mufattir (anything which excites and irritates the mind, body and heart). (Abu Dawood) 

   3.  Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) said’ “If a habitual drunkard dies, he will meet Allah like the one who worships idols.” (Ahmad, Ibn majah from Abu Hurrairah) 

2. ALLAH AND HIS PROPHET (Peace and blessings be upon him) URGE MUSLIMS TO DO FASTING?

This is from Christian’s website: “The Second Weapon Against satan: Fasting

Again, fasting is a strong weapon against the devil: “The devil tries to impose his power on you, but you must remain strong and persevere in your faith. You must pray and fast. I will always be close to you.”

“The devil is trying to conquer us. Do not permit him. Keep the faith, fast, and pray. I will be with you at every step…” 

From other  Christian’s website:

Renew yourselves and fast. For I tell you truly, that Satan and his plagues may only be cast out by fasting and by prayer. Go by yourself and fast alone, and show your fasting to no man. The living God shall see it and great shall be your reward. And fast till all evils depart from you, and all the angels of our Earthly Mother come and serve you. For I tell you truly, except you fast, you shall never be freed from the power of Satan and from all diseases that come from Satan. Fast and pray fervently, seeking the power of the living God for your healing. While you fast, eschew the Sons of Men and seek our Earthly Mother’s angels, for he that seeks shall find.


Sura 2:183: “O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous” –

Sura 2:184:” ……………..But to fast is best for you, if you only knew“.

HADITH:

Narrated Abu Huraira(r.a): The Messenger of Allah(Peace and blessings be upon him) said:”… whoever fasts during Ramadan out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Imam Bukhari).

`Abdullah ibn `Amr reported that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him), said: “The fast and the Qur’an are two intercessors for the servant of Allah on the Day of Resurrection. The fast will say: ‘O Lord, I prevented him from his food and desires during the day. Let me intercede for him.’ The Qur’an will say: ‘I prevented him from sleeping at night. Let me intercede for him.’ And their intercession will be accepted.” [Imam Ahmad]

Abu Umaamah r.a.a. said: I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him), tell me of an action by which I may enter Paradise’. He said: ‘Take to Fasting, there is nothing like it.’ [Imam Nasai’, Ibn Hibbaan, Al-Haakim, Saheeh]

Fasting is a shield with which a servant protects himself from the Fire.” [Imam Ahmad, Saheeh]

THEN, PROPHET (Peace and blessings be upon him)WILL NEVER BE INSPIRED BY SATAN BECAUSE ALLAH AND HIS PROPHET COMMAND MUSLIM TO DO FASTING.

3. AL-QUR’AN ADVICE MUSLIMS NOT FOLLOW SATAN AND MAKE THEM AS GREAT / CLEAR ENEMY?

Sura 2:168: “O mankind, eat from whatever is on earth [that is] lawful and good and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a CLEAR ENEMY.”

Sura 2:208:”O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a CLEAR ENEMY.”

Sura 6:142:”And of the grazing livestock are carriers [of burdens] and those [too] small. Eat of what Allah has provided for you and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a CLEAR ENEMY.”

Sura 7:22:”… tree and tell you that Satan is to you a CLEAR ENEMY?”

Sura 12:5: “He said, “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed Satan, to man, is a MANIFEST ENEMY.”

Sura 17:53: “And tell My servants to say that which is best. Indeed, Satan induces [dissension] among them. Indeed Satan is ever, to mankind, a CLEAR ENEMY.”

Sura 28:15:”… from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is a manifest, MISLEADING ENEMY.”

Sura 35:6: Indeed, Satan is an ENEMY to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blaze.

Sura 36:60: “Did I not enjoin upon you, O children of Adam, that you not worship Satan – [for] indeed, he is to you a CLEAR ENEMY “

Sura 42:62:” And never let Satan avert you. Indeed, he is to you a CLEAR ENEMY.”

IS IT LOGIC FOR SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET (Peace and blessings be upon him) TO MAKE THEM SELVES AS MUSLIMS’ CLEAR ENEMY? THEY WILL NEVER GET FOLLOWERS.

 

 

Debunking the Extremist Myth That Islam is Anti-Jewish

New bus ads in DC say the Qu’ran promotes Jew-hatred. It’s a meritless, dangerous accusation.

The fiasco continues.

Islamophobes are fabricating the myth that Islam promotes Jew-hatred by taking out ads on D.C. buses. Take a look at the ad, linked above—does anyone else find it insane that these ignorant people are spending money promoting pictures of Adolf Hitler?

Now, certainly some Muslims are anti-Jewish, as are some Christians, agnostics, atheists—you get the idea. However, nothing in the Qur’an or in Prophet Muhammad’s example supports the myth of “Islamic Jew hatred.”

As I detail in my upcoming book, EXTREMIST, an objective study of Islam demonstrates that the myth of Islamic Jew hatred crumbles like a house of cards.

So let’s dig in.

Those who proclaim Islamic Jew-hatred deliberately misrepresent the Qur’an 7:167—among several more verses. My analysis of 7:167 below—which is equally applicable to any allegedly “anti-Jew” verse—demonstrates without question that nothing here is “anti-Jewish.” But to remain objective, I reference Dr. Philip Jenkins—a prolific non-Muslim academic—who, on the question of Islamic Jew-hatred writes in his book Laying Down the Sword:

“In order to make such texts look vicious, anti-Islamic critics systematically exaggerate the Jewish element in the passage… The Qur’an offers nothing vaguely as explicit as the New Testament passages in which Jesus himself, who is for Christians the incarnation of the Divine, speaks so furiously against “the Jews.” It is the Jesus of the New Testament who calls his enemies the children not of Abraham but of the Devil, the Father of Lies. [But Jesus] was not condemning all Jews in any racial sense, but was rather attacking rival factions and leaders in his day. And that is the model we find in the Qur’an. In reality, the Qur’an has nothing that need be taken as a condemnation of Jews, or of any ethnic group.”

The Qur’an instead condemns unjust behavior while lauding just behavior—regardless of the person or people committing the act. Simply reading 7:166 and 7:167 together illustrates this point:

“And when [the Jews] forgot all that with which they had been admonished, We saved those who forbade evil, and We seized the transgressors with a severe punishment because they were rebellious. And when they insolently rebelled against that which they had been forbidden, We said to them, “Be ye apes, despised!”

Here the Qur’an speaks of Jews and the Sabbath. God “seized the transgressors” because “they were rebellious.” Just as important, God “saved those [Jews] who forbade evil.” The distinction is not Jew or non-Jew; the distinction is Jews who observed the Sabbath verses Jews who profaned the Sabbath. And for perspective, while the Qur’an metaphorically refers to as “apes” only those Jews who profaned the Sabbath, the biblical condemnation of Jews who profaned the Sabbath in Exodus 31:15 is quite violent: “Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day must be put to death.”

Far from “Jew hatred,” the Qur’an 2:63 repeatedly declares that the Jews shall attain eternal paradise. The Qur’an mentions Prophet Moses by name more than any other prophet—over 150 times— and Islam recognizes the Divine origin of the Torah and the Psalms of David. Prophet Muhammad’s benevolent treatment of Jews attracted their love for him. Safwaan bin Assal relates, “some people among the Jews kissed the hands and feet of the Prophetsa.” It is impossible to consider that a man could garner such love from his citizens with force or violence. Following this example, throughout Islamic history the Jews flourished under Muslim rule in parts of North Africa, Jerusalem, Persia, and Spain.

As Jenkins notes, it is the Gospel of John that incites fear of the dangers Jews posed to Christ, names Jews as dogs, swine, and snakes in Matthew, and declares the Jews’ father is the devil again in John. Martin Luther thus wrote, “What then shall we Christians do with this damned, rejected race of Jews? …their synagogues should be set on fire…their homes should likewise be broken down and destroyed…rabbis must be forbidden under threat of death to teach any more… [let us] be free of this insufferable devilish burden—the Jews. Pope Clement VIII added, “All the world suffers from the usury of the Jews, their monopolies and deceit.”

Thousands of Jews were murdered during the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, and at various times in Europe and Russia. The wordghetto owes its origin to the slums of Venice where Jews lived. Father Charles Coughlin commanded a weekly radio audience of more than thirty million Americans in the 1930s and openly supported anti-Semitism, Adolf Hitler, and Benito Mussolini. And lest we forget, Hitler identified as Christian.

Thus, blindly blaming Islam—which is responsible for none of the above atrocities—ignores that anti-Semitism is a worldwide epidemic. The Anti-Defamation League, in its 2012 report on anti-Semitism in ten European countries concluded, “As with previous surveys, data from this latest 2012 European tracking poll indicates that significant percentages of European respondents continue to believe in some of the most pernicious anti-Semitic stereotypes.” A 2011 ADL poll found that about 15 percent of the US population—forty-five million Americans—“fall into the most anti-Semitic co-hort.”

This allegation of Islamic Jew-hatred is dangerous because it is meritless, creates an irrational fear of Islam and of Muslims, and ignores the factually proven growing anti-Semitism in Europe and America. Per Islamic teaching, Prophet Muhammad treated Jews as equals and with compassion. So enough of these ridiculous bus ads—find something productive to spend your money on. Let’s stop blindly blaming Islam for anti-Semitism and instead work together to root out anti-Semitism wherever it exists.

Qasim Rashid is an attorney, author, and national spokesperson for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. His upcoming book,EXTREMIST: A Response to Geert Wilders & Terrorists Everywhere, is due out May 28.

REFUTING THE PEDOPHILE CLAIM – PART 2

Bismillah

Most people who claim our Prophet (peace be upon him) a pedophile, they don’t know the actual definition of the word, and most people misuse the word. That is why when you fire them back by many questions about that what pedophile really is, they get confuse. For example:

Since when?

You claim my Prophet is a pedophile. Since when? Since he became a teenager? I don’t think so. People called him the “Al-Amin” meaning “the trustworthy”. People like him because of his pious character. Not even a single report from the history he ever got involved such negative activities.

So when did it started? In the age of 25? He got married with Khadija (may Allah please with her). You read the “Biographies” of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and find out why Khadija love him to be her husband. 

From Ar Raheeq Al Makhtum [The Sealed Nectar]
By: Saifur Rahman al-Mubarakpuri

When he returned to Makkah, Khadijah noticed, in her money, more profits and blessings than she used to. Her hireling also told her of Muhammad’s good manners, honesty, deep thought, sincerity and faith. 

From Wikipedia:

The experience that Muhammad held working with caravans in his uncle Abu Talib’s family business had earned him the honorific titles Al-Sadiq (“the Truthful”) and Al-Amin (“the Trustworthy” or “Honest”)

It is said that she died at the age of 64 or 65, having given almost 25 years to the Prophet (SAW) and to the cause of Islam.

From the story Muhammad – Khadija , you will see:

  1. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a person with CLEAN record. People may talk bad mouth about him, but the story Muhammad – Khadija will prove that they lie to you. Khadija was known by the by-names Ameerat-Quraysh (“Princess of Quraysh”), al-Tahira (“The Pure One”) and Khadija Al-Kubra (Khadija “the Great”). Where is the logic for this honorable woman to choose a mental disease man or a man with problematic personalities to marry her?

  2. By the way people call by the titles “the Truthful”and “the Trustworthy” or “Honest” proofing his pious and clean.

3. Where is the logic for a pedophile to hide his identity for 25 years without any bad record what so ever?

Love at the first sight with 6 year old girl?

Then they will say “Married and having sex with children is enough to prove he is a pedophile.”

Wait. Are we still talking about “Mental Disease” pedophile or what? First of all, try to find anywhere in the world, a pedophile asking the child’s parents to marry her. Is a pedophile need a marriage contract to have sex with a child? Which level of pedophilia are we talking about? (they’ll get confuse).

They say: “He loves a 6 year old child”

BUT Prophet Muhammad  (peace be upon him) had no  any attention to Aisha before Khawlah bint Hakeem asking him.

“After Khadijah died, Khawlah bint Hakeem,…said: ‘Wouldn’t you marry, O prophet of Allah?’ He said: ‘Who?’ She said: ‘If you like, a virgin, or a previously married woman.’ He said: ‘Who is the virgin?’ She said: ‘The daughter of the most beloved creature to you, Aisha daughter of Abu Bakr.’ He said: ‘And who is the previously married?’ She said: ‘Sawda bint Zama; she believed in you and followed you, in what you say.’

So Prophet Muhammad had no attention to Aisha except that he knew Aisha is a daughter of his beloved friend Abu Bakr. 

Is it sexual desire to Aisha?

I don’t think so, The American Psychiatric Association (APA) defines pedophile as “recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors that involve children, nonhuman subjects, or other non-consenting adults, or the suffering or humiliation of oneself or one’s partner.”

Is it logic for a Pedophile to HOLD / WAIT his sexual desire for at least 3 years?

People still talk about the age of A’isha when she got married to Prophet. But if you want to presume it was 6 years, let’s go ahead with it. So she was 6 years old (in Makkah). BUT until Prophet and the believers hijrah to Madinah three years later, he had never had sexual relationship with her until A’isha’s father Abu Bakr asked the Prophet.

“Aisha said:…’Until we arrived at Madinah, so I dwelt among the family of Abu Bakr…So Abu Bakr told him: ‘What prevents you from consummating with your wife?’ So he consummated with me’.” / Ibn Hajar (in “Fathul Bari”) and Al Tabaraani.

REALLY? A pedophile can refrain his sexual desire for children for 3 years without hunting any victims in those 3 years at all?

So what make Prophet interested marrying Aisha?

First, it is honoring and securing the tight bound between him and Abu Bakr his beloved closest friend.

Second, Sign from Allah the Almighty through his Prophetic dream

 ‘Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), who said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to her: “You were shown to me twice in a dream. I saw you in a piece of silk (i.e., he saw her image on a piece of silk, or he saw her wearing a silken garment). I was told, ‘This is your wife, so unveil her,’ and it was you. I said: if this dream is from Allah then it will come to pass.’” (Saheeh al-Bukhaari, 3606).

Better stop claiming our prophet a pedophile. Because:

  1. You have no knowledge who Prophet Muhammad really is.
  2. You don’t know exactly what pedophile is.

Please be smart and not just following to what people say.

Allah knows best.

REFUTING THE PEDOPHILE CLAIM – PART 1

Bismillah.

The Un-peaceful non-Muslims happily attack our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by calling him a PEDOPHILE just because he married to A’isyah (may Allah pleased with her)  at the age of 9. When I confront them and challenge them to talk more academically about what pedophile really is, they fail. They run, and they have no answer. Why? because none of the sign of a pedophile match to our Prophet (peace be upon him).

So for those who accused our Prophet a pedophile, clear that they don’t know what they accused for. They don’t know what pedophile is. They have no knowledge about it.

This is refutation part 1.

I got this from this website:  http://www.co.whatcom.wa.us/sheriff/sexoffenders/pedophile.jsp

Through numerous case studies, the Department of Justice has developed characteristics and behavioral indicators of a pedophile.  They are as follows:

  1. Is most often an adult male. OK.
  2. Is usually married. OK
  3. Works in a wide range of occupations, from unskilled laborer to corporate executive. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to be a Sheppard  and Merchant before his Prophet-hood.
  4. Relates better to children than adults. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) relates better to both of them. In fact, most of his companions are adult. But he is gentle with kids.
  5. Socializes with few adults unless they are pedophiles. Again, more of his companions are adult.
  6. Usually prefers children in a specific age group. Not my Prophet. This kind of behavior not suite a leader of a religion and a nation.
  7. Usually prefers either males or females, but may be bi-sexual. Not my Prophet. He is not a bisexual. Can you find it in the history?
  8. May seek employment or volunteer with programs involving children of the age of his preference. Not my Prophet. He is busy leading his ummah. Not a change.
  9. Pursues children for sexual purposes. Not my Prophet. His under age wife that time ONLY A’isyah. A pedophile wants more than one victim. It’s a mental disease. 
  10. Frequently photographs or collects photographs of his victims, either dressed, nude, or in sexually explicit acts. ????????? Prophet (peace be upon him) even urged ladies to use hijab.
  11. Collects child erotica and child-adult pornography. ????????? No such thing.
  12. May possess and furnish narcotics to his victims to lower their inhibitions. ????????? No such thing.
  13. Is usually intelligent enough to recognize that he has a personal problem and understand the severity of it. ???????????? 
  14. May go to great lengths to conceal his illegal activity. Can you mention the ilegal activity the Prophet have done? With the sources?
  15. Often rationalizes his illicit activities, emphasizing his positive impact upon the victim and repressing feelings about the harm that he has done. No such thing recorded in the history of the Prophet.
  16. Often portrays the child as the aggressor.  This usually occurs after the child realizes that by withholding “sexual favors” the child will obtain what he or she desires, such as new toys, clothing or trips. Not my Prophet. Not in history.
  17. Talks about children in the same manner as one would talk about an adult lover or spouse. Not my Prophet. None of the companion witness such behavior. 
  18. Often was a child molestation victim and frequently seeks out children at the age or stage of physical development at which he was molested. Not my Prophet. None of the companion witness such behavior. 
  19. Often seeks out publications and organizations that support his sexual beliefs and practices. Not my Prophet. No such thing.
  20. Usually corresponds with other pedophiles and exchanges child pornography and erotica as proof of involvement. ?????????? No history recorded that a pedophile among the Muslimin. 
  21. Is usually non-violent and has few problems with the law (pedophiles are frequently respected community members). My Prophet? Problem with LAW? give me a break.

If people claim our Prophet (peace be upon him) is a pedophile. Why is it only two of 21 lists are match? That two not even the prove.

So if some come to you and bring you such claim, ask them to talk more detail about what really a pedophile is.

 

 

REGARDING SURAH AL-BAQARAH (2) :190-193

Bismillah.

The most attacked verses in Al-Qur’an is surah Albaqarah verses 190, 191, 192 and 193

Again, the attackers do not care about the context of the verses, when and what situation the verses revealed, they do not even know that the verses they refer contains the PEACEFUL teaching of Islam at least in this context.

  1. Muslim fight only when they (pagans) fight.
  2. Even when you fight, do not transgress the limit. No burning, no beheading, no torturing, no beating or killing women and children, no looting, no robbery, don’t cut the trees.
  3. When they cease, when they surrender, have Mercy on them Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

THESE VERSES MUCH RELATED TO THE CONQUEST OF MAKKAH

Albaqarah (2) 190-193

وَقَاتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلَا تَعْتَدُوا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ

وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ ثَقِفْتُمُوهُمْ وَأَخْرِجُوهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ أَخْرَجُوكُمْ ۚ وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنَ الْقَتْلِ ۚ وَلَا تُقَاتِلُوهُمْ عِندَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ حَتَّىٰ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ فِيهِ ۖ فَإِن قَاتَلُوكُمْ فَاقْتُلُوهُمْ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ جَزَاءُ الْكَافِرِينَ

فَإِنِ انتَهَوْا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّىٰ لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ لِلَّهِ ۖ فَإِنِ انتَهَوْا فَلَا عُدْوَانَ إِلَّا عَلَى الظَّالِمِينَ

Sahih International:  Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors. / And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. / And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. / Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.

Explanation from  Tafsir al-Jalalayn about these verses: Please read to know the context of the verses.

After the Prophet (s) was prevented from [visiting] Masjidil Haram (by Pagans / idol worshiper)  in the year of the battle of Hudaybiyya, he made a pact with the disbelievers that he would be allowed to return the following year, at which time they would vacate Mecca for three days. Having prepared to depart for the Visitation [‘umra], [he and] the believers were concerned that Quraysh would not keep to the agreement and instigate fighting. The Muslims were averse to becoming engaged in fighting while in a state of pilgrimage inviolability in the Sacred Enclosure [al-haram] and during the sacred months, and so the following was revealed:   Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors 

So THESE VERSES MUCH RELATED TO THE CONQUEST OF MAKKAH

I can prove that just by pointing part of one verse above. “wherever they have expelled you, “

Who expelled the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the Muslimin from Makkah? PAGANS QURAISY inside Masjidil Haram Makkah. So the order of killing inside those verses are about taking back MAKKAH that is belongs to Allah and get rid all the pagan activities and destroy all the statues they’ve been worshiped all along.  Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. 

What is FITNAH in this verse means? According to Ibn. Kathir it means SHIRK. Meaning,  the sin of practicing idolatry or polytheism, i.e. the deification or worship of anyone or anything other than the singular God. Thus, FIGHT to clean the IDOL WORSHIPER in this case, inside the Masjidil Haram.

BUT!! If you have to fight, you’d better read the RED words above, FIGHT ONLY………

2:190 “THOSE WHO FIGHT YOU

2:192 “IF THEY FIGHT YOU“. Don’t fight them “UNTIL THEY FIGHT YOU“.

THEY FIGHT YOU, meaning THEY MAKE WAR WITH YOU, then the permission of KILLING is granted. In war, you will kill or to be killed. BUT!! DO NOT TRANSGRESS THE LIMIT!!

Al-Hasan Al-Basri (A famous Islamic Scholar) stated that transgression (indicated by the Ayah),
“includes mutilating the dead, theft (from the captured goods), killing women, children and old people who do not participate in warfare, killing priests and residents of houses of worship, burning down trees and killing animals without real benefit.”

See, even in war Muslims given the certain rules.

This is a small clip from the SEERAH or biography of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum (Sealed Nectar) Book by Ṣafī al-Raḥmān Mubārakfūrī

The Messenger of Allâh (Peace be upon him) asked people to facilitate but he forbade them to bear down hard on others or constrain. “Pacify”, he said, “and do not disincline”. When it happened that he arrived at the battlefield by night, he would never invade the enemy till it was morning. He utterly forbade burning (i.e. torturing people) in fire, killing children and women or even beating them. He also forbade theft and robbery and proceeded so far as to say gains acquired through plundering are not less forbidden than the flesh of a corpse. Corruption of tillage and race and cutting down of trees were all forbidden unless they were badly needed and there was no other substitute:
 “Do not kill a wounded person nor run after a fleeing one or kill a captive.”
He decreed that envoys cannot be killed. He also stressed on not killing those who made covenants. He even said:
“He whoever kills one who is under pledge to a covenant shall not smell Paradise, though its smell could be experienced at a forty-year distance from it.”

The claim that surah Al-Baqarah (2): 190, 191, 192 and 193 as verses promoting violence is baseless and weak. That’s because the attackers are LACK of knowledge in the science of Al-Qur’an, seerah or Hadith of Prophet (peace be upon him). Talk without knowledge is lame. They are nothing but promoting the peaceful teaching of Islam.

Complete list of killing in Bible and estimated total (Including Apocryphal killings)

This one I picked from http://dwindlinginunbelief.blogspot.com/

How amazing people spend their time collect such thing. This is the continuity of the previous article. Please note, I’m NOT trying to criticize God for what He had been doing, but people, especially Christian, attack Al-Qur’an by claiming “Promoting Violent” because of the word KILLING inside the verses. When you read the Old Testament, you will see the nature of communication between GOD and His Prophets and Messengers. GOD is Supreme Being. He hate it when His creation worship other than Him. He created human race and He has right to make them vanish from this earth. In Al-Qur’an, the order of killing related WAR because in Prophet’s (peace be upon him) life passes many wars and Allah the Almighty given permission to fight. That’s it. No such thing Allah the Almighty legalize killing the innocents no matter what their race or religion.

The table shows two numbers: the number given by the Bible, if any, and an estimate, when no biblical number is available.


Total number killed by God in the Bible
– Using biblical numbers only: 2,821,364
 – With estimates25 million

(The table has been updated to include God’s killings in the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical books. I’ll be adding the missing Apocryphal stories in the next few days.)

The ORDER OF KILLING IN OLD TESTAMENT

Bismillah.

It is so ironic that the Christians claiming many verses in Al-Qur’an as “Promoting Violent” such as killing, etc. Little do they know that such commands exist also in Old Testament.

If you collect the verses about the order of killing in Al-Qur’an, you will find that they are merely in context of war where Allah the Almighty make killing permissible. In war, killed of to be killed. Then again the verses partly regarding self defense.

What is the reason I publish this article? In discussion forum, you will find Christians try to elevate their own Bible and down grade the Al-Qur’an by attacking the verses where the command of killing inside. So this articles show you that such command happened to the ancient people where God involved. GOD is supreme being. In Al-Qur’an His severe punishment goes the people who reject the Prophets and the Messengers who bring the TAUHID concept which is worship GOD alone.

There are tens of command of killing and killing in Old Testament.

2 Chronicles 1510 So they assembled at Jerusalem in the third month of the fifteenth year of Asa’s reign. 11 They sacrificed to the Lord that day 700 oxen and 7,000 sheep from the spoil they had brought. 12 They entered into the covenant to seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and soul; 13 and whoever would not seek the Lord God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, man or woman.

Deuteronomy 13:of the gods of the peoples who are around you, near you or far from you, from one end of the earth to the other end),you shall not yield to him or listen to him; and your eye shall not pity him, nor shall you spare or conceal him. But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 10 So you shall stone him to death because he has sought to seduce you from the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and will never again do such a wicked thing among you.

1) Capital Punishment Crimes:

Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel.  (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

Kill Witches    You should not let a sorceress live.  (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

Kill Homosexuals    “If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives.”  (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

Kill Fortunetellers    A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death.  (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

Death for Hitting Dad    Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death.  (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

Death for Cursing Parents    1) If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness.  (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)

2) All who curse their father or mother must be put to death.  They are guilty of a capital offense.  (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)

Death for Adultery    If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death.  (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

Death for Fornication    A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.  (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)

Death to Followers of Other Religions    Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.  (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

Kill Nonbelievers    They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.  (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

Kill False Prophets    If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord.”  When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.  (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.”  (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night    But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house.  Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst.  (Deuteronomy  22:20-21 NAB)

Kill Followers of Other Religions.    1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him.  Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you.  You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.  And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst.  (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)    2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden.  When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death.  (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

Death for Blasphemy    One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men.  During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD’s name.  So the man was brought to Moses for judgment.  His mother’s name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan.  They put the man in custody until the LORD’s will in the matter should become clear.  Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head.  Then let the entire community stone him to death.  Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished.  Anyone who blasphemes the LORD’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel.  Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD’s name will surely die.  (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT)

Kill False Prophets    1) Suppose there are prophets among you, or those who have dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles,  and the predicted signs or miracles take place.  If the prophets then say, ‘Come, let us worship the gods of foreign nations,’ do not listen to them.  The LORD your God is testing you to see if you love him with all your heart and soul.  Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone.  Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.  The false prophets or dreamers who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of slavery in the land of Egypt.  Since they try to keep you from following the LORD your God, you must execute them to remove the evil from among you.  (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NLT)    2) But any prophet who claims to give a message from another god or who falsely claims to speak for me must die.’  You may wonder, ‘How will we know whether the prophecy is from the LORD or not?’  If the prophet predicts something in the LORD’s name and it does not happen, the LORD did not give the message.  That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared.  (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NLT)

Infidels and Gays Should Die    So God let them go ahead and do whatever shameful things their hearts desired.  As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies.  Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies.  So they worshiped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever.  Amen.  That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires.  Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other.  And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other.  Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved.  When they refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done.  Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip.  They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful.  They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents.  They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving.  They are fully aware of God’s death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway.  And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.  (Romans 1:24-32 NLT)

Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle    For the LORD had said to Moses, ‘Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites.  You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment.  They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it.  Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again.  Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.’  (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT)

Kill People for Working on the Sabbath    The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever.  It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.  Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy.  Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community.  Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest.  I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.’  (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

2) God’s Murders for weird Reasons:

Kill Brats    From there Elisha went up to Bethel.  While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him.  “Go up baldhead,” they shouted, “go up baldhead!”  The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord.  Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces.  (2 Kings 2:23-24 NAB)

God Kills the Curious  And he smote of the men of Beth-shemesh, because they had looked into the ark of Jehovah, he smote of the people seventy men, `and’ fifty thousand men; and the people mourned, because Jehovah had smitten the people with a great slaughter.  And the men of Beth-shemesh said, Who is able to stand before Jehovah, this holy God? and to whom shall he go up from us?   (1Samuel 6:19-20 ASV)

Killed by a Lion    Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, “Strike me!”  But the man refused to strike the prophet.  Then the prophet told him, “Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me.”  And sure enough, when he had gone, a lion attacked and killed him.  (1 Kings 20:35-36 NLT)

Killing the Good Samaritan    The ark of God was placed on a new cart and taken away from the house of Abinadab on the hill.  Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab guided the cart, with Ahio walking before it, while David and all the Israelites made merry before the Lord with all their strength, with singing and with citharas, harps, tambourines, sistrums, and cymbals.    When they came to the threshing floor of Nodan, Uzzah reached out his hand to the ark of God to steady it, for the oxen were making it tip.  But the Lord was angry with Uzzah; God struck him on that spot, and he died there before God.  (2 Samuel 6:3-7 NAB)

3) Kill Children

Kill Sons of Sinners    Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.  (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

God Will Kill Children    The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will die at birth or perish in the womb or never even be conceived.  Even if your children do survive to grow up, I will take them from you.  It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone.  I have watched Israel become as beautiful and pleasant as Tyre.  But now Israel will bring out her children to be slaughtered.”  O LORD, what should I request for your people?  I will ask for wombs that don’t give birth and breasts that give no milk.  The LORD says, “All their wickedness began at Gilgal; there I began to hate them.  I will drive them from my land because of their evil actions.  I will love them no more because all their leaders are rebels.  The people of Israel are stricken.  Their roots are dried up; they will bear no more fruit.  And if they give birth, I will slaughter their beloved children.”  (Hosea 9:11-16 NLT)

Kill Men, Women, and Children    “Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked.  Show no mercy; have no pity!  Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children.  But do not touch anyone with the mark.  Begin your task right here at the Temple.”  So they began by killing the seventy leaders.  “Defile the Temple!” the LORD commanded.  “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill!  Go!”  So they went throughout the city and did as they were told.”  (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)

God Kills all the First Born of Egypt    And at midnight the LORD killed all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn son of the captive in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed.  Pharaoh and his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died.  (Exodus 12:29-30 NLT)

Kill Old Men and Young Women    “You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD.  “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms.  With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer.  With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens.  With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers.  “As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem,” says the LORD.  “Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth!  I am your enemy,” says the LORD.  “I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights.  When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble.  You will be desolate forever.  Even your stones will never again be used for building.  You will be completely wiped out,” says the LORD.  (Jeremiah 51:20-26)

(Note that after God promises the Israelites a victory against Babylon, the Israelites actually get their butts kicked by them in the next chapter.  So much for an all-knowing and all-powerful God.)

God Will Kill the Children of Sinners    If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey, I will inflict you with seven more disasters for your sins.  I will release wild animals that will kill your children and destroy your cattle, so your numbers will dwindle and your roads will be deserted.  (Leviticus 26:21-22 NLT)

More Rape and Baby Killing    Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword.  Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes.  Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes.  For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off.  The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows.  They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children.  (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)

4) Miscellaneous Killing

More of Samson’s Killing    (The Lord saves Sampson from standing trial for 30 murders and arson by allowing him to kill 1000 more men.)  When he reached Lehi, and the Philistines came shouting to meet him, the spirit of the Lord came upon him: the ropes around his arms become as flax that is consumed by fire and the bonds melted away from his hands.  Near him was the fresh jawbone of an ass; he reached out, grasped it, and with it killed a thousand men. (Judges 15:14-15 NAB)

Peter Kills Two People   There was also a man named Ananias who, with his wife, Sapphira, sold some property.  He brought part of the money to the apostles, but he claimed it was the full amount.  His wife had agreed to this deception.  Then Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart?  You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself.  The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished.  And after selling it, the money was yours to give away.  How could you do a thing like this?  You weren’t lying to us but to God.”  As soon as Ananias heard these words, he fell to the floor and died.  Everyone who heard about it was terrified.  Then some young men wrapped him in a sheet and took him out and buried him.  About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened.  Peter asked her, “Was this the price you and your husband received for your land?”  “Yes,” she replied, “that was the price.”  And Peter said, “How could the two of you even think of doing a thing like this – conspiring together to test the Spirit of the Lord?  Just outside that door are the young men who buried your husband, and they will carry you out, too.”  Instantly, she fell to the floor and died.  When the young men came in and saw that she was dead, they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.  Great fear gripped the entire church and all others who heard what had happened.   (Acts 5:1-11 NLT)

Mass Murder    This is what the Lord of  hosts has to say: ‘I will punish what Amalek did to Israel when he barred his way as he was coming up from Egypt.  Go, now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has under the ban.  Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and asses.’   (1 Samuel 15:2-3 NAB)

You Have to Kill    Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood.  (Jeremiah 48:10 NAB)

The Danites Kill the Next Town    But the territory of the Danites was too small for them; so the Danites marched up and attacked Leshem, which they captured and put to the sword.  Once they had taken possession of Lesham, they renamed the settlement after their ancestor Dan.  (Joshua 19:47 NAB)

God Kills Some More    Then the LORD said to me, “Even if Moses and Samuel stood before me pleading for these people, I wouldn’t help them.  Away with them!  Get them out of my sight!  And if they say to you, ‘But where can we go?’ tell them, ‘This is what the LORD says: Those who are destined for death, to death; those who are destined for war, to war; those who are destined for famine, to famine; those who are destined for captivity, to captivity.’  “I will send four kinds of destroyers against them,” says the LORD.  “I will send the sword to kill, the dogs to drag away, the vultures to devour, and the wild animals to finish up what is left.  Because of the wicked things Manasseh son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, did in Jerusalem, I will make my people an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.”  (Jeremiah 15:1-4 NLT)

God Promises More Killing     I will make Mount Seir utterly desolate, killing off all who try to escape and any who return.  I will fill your mountains with the dead. Your hills, your valleys, and your streams will be filled with people slaughtered by the sword.  I will make you desolate forever. Your cities will never be rebuilt. Then you will know that I am the LORD.  (Ezekiel 35:7-9 NLT)

The Angel of Death    My angel will go before you and bring you to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites, and Jebusites; and I will wipe them out.  (Exodus 23:23 NAB)

Destruction of Ai    Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid or discouraged.  Take the entire army and attack Ai, for I have given to you the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land.  You will destroy them as you destroyed Jericho and its king. But this time you may keep the captured goods and the cattle for yourselves. Set an ambush behind the city.”  So Joshua and the army of Israel set out to attack Ai.  Joshua chose thirty thousand fighting men and sent them out at night with these orders: “Hide in ambush close behind the city and be ready for action.  When our main army attacks, the men of Ai will come out to fight as they did before, and we will run away from them.  We will let them chase us until they have all left the city. For they will say, ‘The Israelites are running away from us as they did before.’  Then you will jump up from your ambush and take possession of the city, for the LORD your God will give it to you.  Set the city on fire, as the LORD has commanded.  You have your orders.”  So they left that night and lay in ambush between Bethel and the west side of Ai.  But Joshua remained among the people in the camp that night. 

    Early the next morning Joshua roused his men and started toward Ai, accompanied by the leaders of Israel.  They camped on the north side of Ai, with a valley between them and the city.  That night Joshua sent five thousand men to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city.  So they stationed the main army north of the city and the ambush west of the city.  Joshua himself spent that night in the valley.  When the king of Ai saw the Israelites across the valley, he and all his army hurriedly went out early the next morning and attacked the Israelites at a place overlooking the Jordan Valley.  But he didn’t realize there was an ambush behind the city.  Joshua and the Israelite army fled toward the wilderness as though they were badly beaten,  and all the men in the city were called out to chase after them.  In this way, they were lured away from the city.  There was not a man left in Ai or Bethel who did not chase after the Israelites, and the city was left wide open. 

    Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Point your spear toward Ai, for I will give you the city.”  Joshua did as he was commanded.  As soon as Joshua gave the signal, the men in ambush jumped up and poured into the city.  They quickly captured it and set it on fire.  When the men of Ai looked behind them, smoke from the city was filling the sky, and they had nowhere to go. For the Israelites who had fled in the direction of the wilderness now turned on their pursuers.  When Joshua and the other Israelites saw that the ambush had succeeded and that smoke was rising from the city, they turned and attacked the men of Ai.  Then the Israelites who were inside the city came out and started killing the enemy from the rear. So the men of Ai were caught in a trap, and all of them died. Not a single person survived or escaped.  Only the king of Ai was taken alive and brought to Joshua.

    When the Israelite army finished killing all the men outside the city, they went back and finished off everyone inside.  So the entire population of Ai was wiped out that day – twelve thousand in all.  For Joshua kept holding out his spear until everyone who had lived in Ai was completely destroyed.  Only the cattle and the treasures of the city were not destroyed, for the Israelites kept these for themselves, as the LORD had commanded Joshua.  So Ai became a permanent mound of ruins, desolate to this very day.  Joshua hung the king of Ai on a tree and left him there until evening. At sunset the Israelites took down the body and threw it in front of the city gate.  They piled a great heap of stones over him that can still be seen today.  (Joshua 8:1-29 NLT)

Killing at Jericho   When the people heard the sound of the horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed, and the Israelites charged straight into the city from every side and captured it.  They completely destroyed everything in it – men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep, donkeys – everything.  (Joshua 6:20-21 NLT)

God Kills an Extended Family    “You have done more evil than all who lived before you.  You have made other gods and have made me furious with your gold calves.  And since you have turned your back on me, I will bring disaster on your dynasty and kill all your sons, slave or free alike.  I will burn up your royal dynasty as one burns up trash until it is all gone.  I, the LORD, vow that the members of your family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the field will be eaten by vultures.'”  Then Ahijah said to Jeroboam’s wife, “Go on home, and when you enter the city, the child will die.  All Israel will mourn for him and bury him.  He is the only member of your family who will have a proper burial, for this child is the only good thing that the LORD, the God of Israel, sees in the entire family of Jeroboam.  And the LORD will raise up a king over Israel who will destroy the family of Jeroboam.  This will happen today, even now!  Then the LORD will shake Israel like a reed whipped about in a stream.  He will uproot the people of Israel from this good land that he gave their ancestors and will scatter them beyond the Euphrates River, for they have angered the LORD by worshiping Asherah poles.  He will abandon Israel because Jeroboam sinned and made all of Israel sin along with him.” (1 Kings 14:9-16 NLT)

Mass Murder    The men of Israel withdrew through the territory of the Benjaminites, putting to the sword the inhabitants of the city, the livestock, and all they chanced upon.  Moreover they destroyed by fire all the cities they came upon.  (Judges 20:48 NAB)

The Angel of Death    That night the angel of the Lord went forth and struck down one hundred and eighty five thousand men in the Assyrian camp.  Early the next morning, there they were, all the corpuses of the dead.  (2 Kings 19:35 NAB)

Kill Your Neighbors    (Moses) stood at the entrance to the camp and shouted, “All of you who are on the LORD’s side, come over here and join me.” And all the Levites came.  He told them, “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Strap on your swords! Go back and forth from one end of the camp to the other, killing even your brothers, friends, and neighbors.”  The Levites obeyed Moses, and about three thousand people died that day.  Then Moses told the Levites, “Today you have been ordained for the service of the LORD, for you obeyed him even though it meant killing your own sons and brothers. Because of this, he will now give you a great blessing.”  (Exodus 32:26-29 NLT)

Kill the Family of Sinners    And Joshua said to Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession to him; and tell me now what thou hast done, hide it not from me.  And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done.  When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them, and behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.”  [Note that the sin is not looting, but failing to give the loot to the treasury of the Lord.]  “So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent, and behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.  And they took them from the midst of the tent, and brought them to Joshua, and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.  And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them to the valley of Achor.  And Joshua said, why hast thou troubled us?  the LORD shall trouble thee this day.  And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.  And they raised over him a great heap of stones to this day.  So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger: wherefore the name of that place was called the valley of Achor to this day.  (Joshua 7:19-26 Webster’s Bible)

Kill Followers of Other Religions    While the Israelites were camped at Acacia, some of the men defiled themselves by sleeping with the local Moabite women.  These women invited them to attend sacrifices to their gods, and soon the Israelites were feasting with them and worshiping the gods of Moab.  Before long Israel was joining in the worship of Baal of Peor, causing the LORD’s anger to blaze against his people.  The LORD issued the following command to Moses: “Seize all the ringleaders and execute them before the LORD in broad daylight, so his fierce anger will turn away from the people of Israel.”  So Moses ordered Israel’s judges to execute everyone who had joined in worshiping Baal of Peor.  Just then one of the Israelite men brought a Midianite woman into the camp, right before the eyes of Moses and all the people, as they were weeping at the entrance of the Tabernacle.  When Phinehas son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron the priest saw this, he jumped up and left the assembly.  Then he took a spear and rushed after the man into his tent. Phinehas thrust the spear all the way through the man’s body and into the woman’s stomach.  So the plague against the Israelites was stopped, but not before 24,000 people had died.  (Numbers 25:1-9 NLT)

Murder    At the customary time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command.  O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”  Immediately the fire of the LORD flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust.  It even licked up all the water in the ditch!  And when the people saw it, they fell on their faces and cried out, “The LORD is God!  The LORD is God!”  Then Elijah commanded, “Seize all the prophets of Baal.  Don’t let a single one escape!”  So the people seized them all, and Elijah took them down to the Kishon Valley and killed them there.  (1 Kings 18:36-40 NLT)

Kill All of Babylon    “Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge!  Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you,” says the LORD.  “Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction”.   (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)

Micah Kills a Whole Town     Then, with Micah’s idols and his priest, the men of Dan came to the town of Laish, whose people were peaceful and secure.  They attacked and killed all the people and burned the town to the ground.  There was no one to rescue the residents of the town, for they lived a great distance from Sidon and had no allies nearby.  This happened in the valley near Beth-rehob.Then the people of the tribe of Dan rebuilt the town and lived there.  They renamed the town Dan after their ancestor, Israel’s son, but it had originally been called Laish.  (Judges 18:27-29 NLT)  (Note that God approves of this slaughter in verse 6.)

REGARDING SURAH AT-TAUBAH (9) : 5

Bismillah. A lot of non Muslims refer surah 9:5 in Al-Qur’an as one of the so called “promote violent”. They picked from another Islamophobe websites without learning about the nature of the verse it self. In fact, they don’t care as long as they can use this as a prove. Surrah At-Taubah (9) : 5

فَإِذَا انسَلَخَ الْأَشْهُرُ الْحُرُمُ فَاقْتُلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَخُذُوهُمْ وَاحْصُرُوهُمْ وَاقْعُدُوا لَهُمْ كُلَّ مَرْصَدٍ ۚ فَإِن تَابُوا وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ فَخَلُّوا سَبِيلَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Muhsin Khan Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. When they refer you this verse, ask them to take a look at verse no. 1 which is easier to show them the context and the situation the verse revealed. Surrah At-Taubah (9) : 1

بَرَاءَةٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ إِلَى الَّذِينَ عَاهَدتُّم مِّنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ

Pickthall : Freedom from obligation (is proclaimed) from Allah and His messenger toward those of the idolaters with whom ye made a treaty.

Sahih International: [This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists.

Muhsin Khan: Freedom from (all) obligations (is declared) from Allah and His Messenger (SAW) to those of the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters), with whom you made a treaty.

What do you see? The beginning of surah Taubah is about the TREATY and it aimed for the IDOLATERS / the MUSYRIKIN / the PAGANS of QURAISY. Even is verse 5 you will see clearly that the words aimed for the MUSYRIKIN / PAGANS.

فَإِذَا انسَلَخَ الْأَشْهُرُ الْحُرُمُ فَاقْتُلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ

Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun.

Until this point (from the verses only), it is clear that:

1. Surah 9:5 does not aimed for the non-muslim in universal term. It is specifically for the Mushrikun, the PAGANS of Quraisy .

2. Surah 9:5 is one part of the verses related to a treaty. It is NOT a stand alone verse to promote the killing.

Let us talk more detail about this surah.

The beginning of surah At-Taubah is about the termination of the TREATY OF HUDAYBIYAH which was affirmed a 10-year peace between between Muhammad  (peace be upon him) , representing the state of Medina, and the Quraish tribe of Mecca in March 628 or 6th year A.H (After Hijrah). BUT. Not even 2 (two) years, the Pagans breach of the treaty by attacked the Bedouin Khuza’a, Prophet’s (peace be upon him)  allies. The beginning of verse 1 started with the word BARA’A meaning the disassociation, in this case disassociation of the treaty of Hudaybiyah. Allah the Almighty Himself terminated it.

The verses revealed in 9 A.H (After Hijra) after the pilgrims had left for Mecca. Prophet (peace be upon him) sent Abu Bakr (radiallahu ‘anhu) in command of the pilgrims. The Quraisy (pagans) were, during the year, at their pilgrimage stations. Abu Bakr (radiallahu ‘anhu) then led a party of one hundred Muslims. After the verses revealed, Prophet (peace be upon him) sent for Ali (radiallahu ‘anhu) and charged him to proclaim the verses at Mina when all the pilgrims had assembled thereafter performing the sacrifice. It signified the end of idolatry in Arabia for no idolater was allowed to perform Hajj nor to circle round the Kaba in a nude state after that year. The divine revelation also commanded that if the Prophet (peace be upon him) was obliged to fulfill any obligation under a treaty with the polytheists it would be discharged up to a stipulated period after which the pact would then be deemed inutile and immaterial.

Ali (radiallahu ‘anhu) went forth on the Prophet (peace be upon him)s camel and overtook Abu Bakr (radiallahu ‘anhu) along the way, who asked Ali (radiallahu ‘anhu) if he had come to give orders to him or whether he had something to convey them. Ali (radiallahu ‘anhu) replied that he had only been charged to convey orders to him. Thereafter, both proceeded to Mecca where Abu Bakr (radiallahu ‘anhu) managed the arrangements for Hajj. When the day of sacrifice came, Ali (radiallahu ‘anhu) proclaimed what he had been ordered by the Prophet (peace be upon him). (Ibn Hisham, Vol. II, pp. 543-46)

Let us read verse 1, 2, 3, and 4. you will understand what surah 5 related with.

[This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists. / So travel freely, [O disbelievers], throughout the land [during] four months but know that you cannot cause failure to Allah and that Allah will disgrace the disbelievers.” /And [it is] an announcement from Allah and His Messenger to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that Allah is disassociated from the disbelievers, and [so is] His Messenger. So if you repent, that is best for you; but if you turn away – then know that you will not cause failure to Allah . And give tidings to those who disbelieve of a painful punishment. / Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].

So Allah the Almighty and His Prophet (peace be upon him) gave the Pagans four months to prepare themselves. To stay or to go anywhere they like.

Now, come to verse 5 where you see the order of killing. “then kill the Mushrikun”For this, you have to see:

– The next words. capture them and besiege them Meaning, Kill only when they fight. If they proclaim war. If not, CAPTURE them. BUT, see the next words But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. 

– See the next verse (6): And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.

The Verse no 6 refutes the claim violent as what people claimed. Have a look closely and please open your mind, read carefully. And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection.  

Not only that,  Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.

Now you see what Allah the Almighty taught muslims. KILLING is not the first priority. MERCY come first. In surah 9:7, Allah says:”…..Indeed, Allah loves the righteous ” So if you want Allah loves you, DO THE RIGHTEUS, be PIOUS!. Have mercy on human kind.
