Answering Claims of Paul Ross No.11 ” Thou shall Terrorize non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 8:60″

A Non Muslim reader sent me a response regarding “REFUTING CLAIM SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET IN CAVE (not GABRIEL).” His name is Paul Ross.

His TITLE: The 20 Commandments of Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

There are 20 claims that he believes inspired by satan. All I can say that he doesn’t understand anything about Islam especially Al-Qur’an. Let’s discuss it one by one.

I SKIPPED CLAIM NO 2 (2. Thou shall have Sex Slaves and Work Slaves. Koran 4:3, 4:24, 5:89,33:50, 58:3, 70:30) since this kind of discussion demanding long explanation. I will discuss this for the last Insha Allah.


11. Thou shall Terrorize non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 8:60

This is another verse that is commonly quoted out of context, both historical context and the context of the verse itself in the Qur’an. Let us first examine the full verse:

Surah 8:12

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, “I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.”

There are 20 claims that he believes inspired by satan. All I can say that he doesn’t understand anything about Islam especially Al-Qur’an. Let’s discuss it one by one.

I SKIPPED CLAIM NO 2 (2. Thou shall have Sex Slaves and Work Slaves. Koran 4:3, 4:24, 5:89,33:50, 58:3, 70:30) since this kind of discussion demanding long explanation. I will discuss this for the last Insha Allah.


10. Thou shall Kill AND be Killed for Allah. Koran 9:5

Surah 9:5

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Surah 9:6

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.

Having presented the verse in context, we can analyze it properly. Dr. Maher Hathout gives an explanation on the historical context of the verse:

9. Thou shall Behead non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 47:4

ANOTHER MISQUOTE FROM MR PAUL. This is another verse that is commonly quoted out of context, both historical context and the context of the verse itself in the Qur’an. Let us first examine the full verse:

Surah 8:12

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, “I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.”

Surah 8:13

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
That is because they opposed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger – indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.

That is the context of the verse in the Qur’an. The historical context is that this verse was revealed at the Battle of Badr, a battle in which the pagans of Makkah traveled over 200 miles to destroy the Muslims of Madinah. The Pagans of Makkah had an army of about 1000 while the Muslims were only 300 followers. The Prophet Muhammad ((peace be upon him)) and his followers had suffered severe persecutions and torture for 13 years in the city of Makkah. Having fled from Makkah to the safety of Madinah, they found that they were once again threatened. Abul ‘Ala Maududi describes the situation that led to the Battle of Badr, beginning with the Muslim activity in Madinah:

8. Thou shall Kill anyone who leaves Islam. Koran 2:217, 4:89

Surah 2:217:

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
They ask you about the sacred month – about fighting therein. Say, “Fighting therein is great [sin], but averting [people] from the way of Allah and disbelief in Him and [preventing access to] al-Masjid al-Haram and the expulsion of its people therefrom are greater [evil] in the sight of Allah . And fitnah is greater than killing.” And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able. And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever – for those, their deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide therein eternally.

Surah 2:218:

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
Indeed, those who have believed and those who have emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah – those expect the mercy of Allah . And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

THIS VERSES IS ABOUT WAR IN SACRED MONTH. NOTHING ABOUT KILL ANYONE WHO LEAVES ISLAM.

Answering Claims of Paul Ross No7. “Thou shall Kill non-Muslims to guarantee receiving 72 virgins in heaven. Koran 9:111”

A Non Muslim reader sent me a response regarding “REFUTING CLAIM SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET IN CAVE (not GABRIEL).” His name is Paul Ross.

His TITLE: The 20 Commandments of Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

There are 20 claims that he believes inspired by satan. All I can say that he doesn’t understand anything about Islam especially Al-Qur’an. Let’s discuss it one by one.

I SKIPPED CLAIM NO 2 (2. Thou shall have Sex Slaves and Work Slaves. Koran 4:3, 4:24, 5:89,33:50, 58:3, 70:30) since this kind of discussion demanding long explanation. I will discuss this for the last Insha Allah.


7. Thou shall Kill non-Muslims to guarantee receiving 72 virgins in
heaven. Koran 9:111

Surah 9:111 : PICKTHALL
Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.

  1. Read it carefully. Nothing about KILLING NON-MUSLIMS and Mr. Paul can’t proof that ” fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain.” means killing all the non-Muslims. Fight in the way of Allah is fight to defend your religion from people who want Islam banish from the earth.
  2. No mention about 72 virgins in this passage. 

There are pro and contra about 72 virgins. But much ever the number is, Paradise is a place for pleasure. Nothing Negative inside it, and nothing you can find all thing about paradise on this earth.

One day in paradise is considered equal to a thousand years on earth. Palaces are made from bricks of gold, silver, pearls, among other things. Traditions also note the presence of horses and camels of “dazzling whiteness”, along with other creatures. Large trees are described, mountains made of musk, between which rivers flow in valleys of pearl and ruby.[2]” (Wikipedia)

So, there is nothing like Paradise on this earth.

Answering Claims of Paul Ross No 6. “Thou shall Crucify and Amputate non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 47:4”

A Non Muslim reader sent me a response regarding “REFUTING CLAIM SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET IN CAVE (not GABRIEL).” His name is Paul Ross.

6. Thou shall Crucify and Amputate non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 47:4

Surah 8:12 is not about killing of all Non Muslims. This Surah merely against the Pagan Quraisy.

When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.

This verse and the verses before and after were revealed about the Battle of Badr, which occurred in Arabia in the early seventh century. A battle in which the pagans of Makkah traveled more than 200 miles to Madinah with an army of about 1000 to destroy Muslims. Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) and fellow Muslims had suffered severe persecutions and torture for 13 years in the city of Makkah. And now that they had fled Makkah and found a sanctuary in the city of Madinah, they were once again threatened. Muslim Army was only about 300 strong. God Almighty gave the order to Muslims to fight to defend their lives and faith. The enemy came to them with the intent to kill Muslims. It was a war to defend themselves and their Faith. It was a war imposed upon Muslims.

To convince you, open surah 8: 15-16

5. Thou shall Kill those who insult Islam or Mohammed. Koran 33:57

  • There is no KILL command in the verse.

I provide you three translations of Surah 33:57. None of them showing the word KILL.

PICKTHALL
Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in the world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained.

MUHSIN KHAN
Verily, those who annoy Allah and His Messenger (SAW) Allah has cursed them in this world, and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating torment.

SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
Indeed, those who abuse Allah and His Messenger – Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter and prepared for them a humiliating punishment.

DR. GHALI
Surely the ones who hurt Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in the present (life) (Literally: the lowly (life), i.e., the life of this world) and the Hereafter, and He has prepared for them a degrading torment.

Answering Claims of Paul Ross No 4. “Thou shall have 4 Muslim male witnesses to prove rape. Koran 24:13”

4. Thou shall have 4 Muslim male witnesses to prove rape. Koran 24:13

Nothing wrong by providing 4 witnesses when you accuse someone raping a woman. This is the definision of the witness:

A witness is someone who has, who claims to have, or is thought, by someone with authority to compel testimony, to have knowledge relevant to an event or other matter of interest. In law a witness is someone who, either voluntarily or under compulsion, provides testimonial evidence, either oral or written, of what he or she knows or claims to know about the matter before some official authorized to take such testimony.

So nothing wrong to provide the witnesses when someone trying to slander you. In Islam you have to have FOUR witnesses.

THIS SURAH IS NOTHING ABOUT RAPE. (Be smart)

Mr. Paul, let me explain you more.

3. Thou shall Beat Sex Slaves, Work Slaves, and Wives. Koran 4:34

Surah 4:34 has NOTHING TO DO about BEATING SEX SLAVE OR WORK SLAVE because no such words found in the phrase. (You’ve just making it up)

Arabic version of surah 4:34

لرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ وَبِمَا أَنفَقُوا مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ ۚ فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَاللَّاتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَاهْجُرُوهُنَّ فِي الْمَضَاجِعِ وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ ۖ فَإِنْ أَطَعْنَكُمْ فَلَا تَبْغُوا عَلَيْهِنَّ سَبِيلًا ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيًّا كَبِيرًا

Answering Claims of Paul Ross No 1. ” Thou shall Rape, Marry, and Divorce Pre-pubescent Girls. Koran 65:4″

A Non Muslim reader sent me a response regarding “REFUTING CLAIM SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET IN CAVE (not GABRIEL).” His name is Paul Ross.

His TITLE: The 20 Commandments of Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

There are 20 claims that he believes inspired by satan. All I can say that he doesn’t understand anything about Islam especially Al-Qur’an. Let’s discuss it one by one.


1. Thou shall Rape, Marry, and Divorce Pre-pubescent Girls. Koran 65:4

Surah 65 named At-Talaq. In English: THE DIVORCE . Just from the title of the surah, I refute the claims about RAPE and GIRLS. Surah 65 is about the GUIDANCE regarding the DIVORCE. Nothing about RAPE and nothing about DEVORCING PRE-PUBESCENT GIRLS.

It’s about IDDAH. What is Iddah?

In Islam, iddah or iddat (Arabic: العدة‎‎; period of waiting) is the period a woman must observe after the death of her spouse or after a divorce, during which she may not marry another man. Its purpose is to ensure that the male parent of any offspring produced after the cessation of a nikah (marriage) would be known.

This is the story how surah 65:4 exists.

 Ibn Abi Hatim recorded a simpler narration than this one from Ubay bin Ka`b who said, “O Allah’s Messenger! When the Ayah in Surat Al-Baqarah was revealed prescribing the `Iddah of divorce, some people in Al-Madinah said, `There are still some women whose `Iddah has not been mentioned in the Qur’an. There are the young, the old whose menstruation is discontinued, and the pregnant.’ Later on, this Ayah was revealed,

This is Surah 65:4: (SAHIH INTERNATIONAL)
And those who no longer expect menstruation (menopause) among your women – if you doubt, then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him of his matter ease.


Allah the Exalted clarifies the waiting period of the woman in menopause. And that is the one whose menstruation has stopped due to her older age. Her `Iddah is three months instead of the three monthly cycles for those who menstruate, which is based upon the Ayah in (Surat) Al-Baqarah. ﴿see 2:228﴾ The same for the young, who have not reached the years of menstruation. Their `Iddah is three months like those in menopause.

Claim no. 1 refuted. Nothing to do about RAPE or DIVORCING RE-PUBESCENT GIRLS.
