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.

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.

Fight Those Who Do Not Believe” – Surah 9:29

Long article providing a reference about surah 9:29

1. Introduction

This article examines chapter 9, verse 29 of the Quran, in its historical context. Some claim that the verse (Q. 9:29) endorses and ‘sanctions Muslims to kill innocent Christians and Jews’. This is simply not true. We undertook the task to investigate the verse (Q. 9:29) as a result of some critics misusing, and twisting the verse to mean something it has never intended to say. It is only appropriate to respond to their claims, given the fact that, not even Prophet Muhammed (p) interpreted it as such during his own life. Read more of this post

Refuting The Allegation That ‘Muhammed hit his wife Aisha’ and more!

In this article I am going to answer (refute) some claims that are spread around by Islamophobes on woman, in Islam, God willing.

Critics of Islam who want to undermine the character of the Prophet Muhammed (p) have accused the Prophet of beating his wife Aisha up. The Hadith the critics cite says: Read more of this post

Aisha Reached Puberty Before Marriage Was Consummated – PART 2

5. Aisha Reached Puberty Before Marriage Was Consummated

Introduction,

Among the claims made in regards to Prophet Muhammed’s marriage to Aisha is that such a marriage was uncommon. Some online detractors even go the extend to avoid and deliberately make out to their readers that such a marriage was unheard off in history.

Indeed there are a number of authentic reports in Sahih al Bukhari and other sources which say that her marriage was consummated at the age of 9 (or 10 in some other sources). THIS WAS THE TIME SHE HAD REACHED THE AGE OF PUBERTY. Although this age is something that has been accepted among the conservative Muslims in the past and today, there are some 20th century proponents who have pointed out based on external evidence from a number of authentic reports that her age was older than what is commonly accepted among Muslims. I won’t go into much more detail on this here, as there may be an article on this matter in the near future to see if what is presented has any validity. Read more of this post

Islamic view of the Trinity

  • People of the Book (CHRISTIANS), do not go to excess in your religion, and do not say anything about God except the truth: the Messiah, JESUS, SON OF MARY, WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A MESSENGER OF GOD, His word, directed to Mary, a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers and do not speak of a ‘Trinity’—stop, that is better for you—God is only one God, He is far above having a son, everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Him and He is the best one to trust.— Qur’an, sura 4 (An-Nisa), ayat 171[3] Read more of this post

Aisha Reached Puberty Before Marriage Was Consummated – PART 1

 

It is claimed when the marriage of Aisha was consummated she was a prepubescent girl. This not true when one looks at some of the earliest historical sources of Islam:

Narrated AISHA: (the wife of the Prophet) I had seen my parents following Islam since I attained the age of PUBERTY. Not a day passed but the Prophet visited us, both in the mornings and evenings.” (Sahih al-Bukhari volume 1, Book 8, Hadith 465 https://sunnah.com/bukhari/8/124)

The above report is also reported elsewhere but with a slight variation of words. While the above has the word “puberty”, this exchanged with “remember”. While the former Hadith says she hit puberty, this Hadith (below) says that she remembers things. This suggests that at this stage of her life she had reached the mental faculty to discern things: Read more of this post
