Yes, It Is Islam

“And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.” [Quran 6: 115].

Muslims will never be apologetic about their religion because they didn’t invent one single word of it. The religion of Islam is all divine, and the Koran is word by word the final Message of Allah to His seal of the prophets Muhammad. Allah’s word to Muhammad is universal. Muhammad was sent to the whole world and not just to a sect or certain people as was the case with all other prophets before him

– Dr. Mohsen El-Guindy

This is Islam. This is what true Moslems (believers) must hold true. Allah, the creator and ruler of the universe, has said so. Many of these words direct Moslems to take action against non-believers and especially those who formerly believed, but have stopped believing. Also, Allah’s words are directed to specific groups of people, like gays and atheists. What does Allah want Moslems to do? In most instances to kill them. Sometimes it seems that Allah lets them live so that they will fall ever deeper into sin and thereby suffer even more horrendous punishment. Mostly having to do with fire.

These days there is a regressive storm of Facebook postings, tweets, news stories, opinion pieces, statements by various government officials that basically blame the Orlando massacre on everything but Islam. It’s American toxic machismo. It’s the NRA. It’s a type of rifle. It’s oppressive colonialism. It’s ‘terrorism’ (whatever the hell that means). On and on. But, surely, they say, it has really nothing to do with Islam.

Wrong. Read the above quotes. Look at passages from Islamic books. Listen to Imams exhorting their followers to kill non-believers, especially the Jews, gays, atheists, apostates, and… I’m certain I’ve missed a few target groups, but you can always peruse Allah’s words for details.

Yes, it is Isalm. Without Islam these things would not be happening and the Moslems would not favor imposing their theocratic requirements and laws upon everyone else on the planet. Which is Allah’s goal.

These charts should not come as a surprise. If you believe the regressive apologists and many politicians, they probably will. You owe it to yourselves to get the facts. Facts don’t lie. Moslems and their apologists do.

The really dangerous thing about this is the so-called moderate Moslems, the ones who tactily support violent jihad and the campaign to turn the rest of the world into Moslems too. If they were truly moderate and refom minded, wanting to live by 21st century morals and values, they would be busy denouncing these evil Islamists bent on killing the rest of us and do something to make fundamental changes to Islam.

But, they are faced with two problems. If they believe in Allah, they can’t change a thing because Allah has said, “…none can alter his words.” Second problem, if they don’t believe in Allah, they can alter anything they want, but then, the real Moslems will have to kill them too.

So, logically, it appears that the root problem is Islam. It must be dealt with. 

Now, watch as the ostrich brigade buries their collective heads ever deeper in the sand. Keep that up and someday a faithful Moslem will come along and whack them off.

  1. Dear Michael
    Read carefully man because there is no time for opposition or senseless arguments. Religion with Allah (God in English) is only Islam and no other. Islam means (1) to worship the One God without associating with Him any partner or partners, (2) to do good deeds according to the divine Books that have been given to the prophets. So if you lived at the time of Abraham, you must worship the One God alone and do good deeds according to the Pages or scrolls of Abraham. This manner of spiritual life is repeated with David (the Psalm), Moses (the Torah), Jesus (the Gospel) and Muhammad (the Koran). This is the wisdom of creation. Allah has created the universe to be worshiped alone and do good deeds based on the divine commandments He mentioned in His divine Books. Because all prophets brought the same Message of Islam, they are therefore all Muslims and Muhammad is the last Messenger of Islam – the only religion Allah will accept from His servants on the Day of accountability.

    Because all the Books before the Koran were lost or adulterated, Allah out of His mercy decided to descend upon Muhammad a last divine Book including His last commandments to the world and also matters of dispute that arose between the different sects when their Books were adulterated or lost. The truth that these Books mentioned are mentioned in the Koran, thus the true Messages of the Creator that were brought by old prophets and were lost, the Koran revived them again and brought them to light. The Koran serves therefore as a reference for those who want to know the truth about ancient prophets, their real messages and how Allah treated the countries which rebelled against Him.

    The Koran is therefore a proof against all people on the Day of Judgment that they all knew the truth though they did not follow it. The Koran is therefore a mercy to all beings. Allah says to Muhammad – peace be upon him – “We have sent you a bearer of good tidings and as a mercy to all beings.” The Koran is also a Warner to the world. Allah also says in the Koran: “We have sent you a bearer of good tidings and a Warner.

    This is why Muslims say that all people must worship the One God and no other, and must do good deeds based on the injunctions of the Koran – the only unadulterated Book that Allah has guarded from corruption until the Day of Judgment.

    Never would Allah accept a man standing before Him on the Day of Resurrection saying: “Allah I have worshiped You as one in three or three in one.” In the eyes of Allah this is ugly polytheism. Never would Allah accept the worship of a man who worshiped Him through a pope, priest, animal, tree, nature, Jesus, father. son, Holy Ghost etc).

    The road to Paradise is two things: (1) worshiping the One God without partners or partner, and do good deeds as mentioned in the Koran, and what has been mentioned in the Koran has also been mentioned in all other divine obliterated books.

    The good deeds the Koran and all other previous Books talked about are virtues to be adopted in our present life. Virtues that have nothing to do with the free lifestyle the West is adopting (sex outside marriage, wine, gambling, homosexuality, lesbianism). This distorted lifestyle the West fears that Islam might threatens it!

    Yes, Muhammad had his battles with the disbelievers until the religion of Allah was established on earth. Battles performed by the command of Allah. Battles fought by the Prophet and his devotees and supported by the angels good tidings for the believers. When the religion was established and people embraced it, Allah ordered the Prophet not to fight people but to act as a bearer of good tidings for the believers, and a Warner for the disbelievers. Allah said to His Prophet that from now on, and after all people knew the truth, they will be left to roam at will until the Day of Judgment where they will receive their accountability.

    Muslims are not imposing their religion on anybody, they were only ordered to deliver the Message to the world. If people believe in it, it is for their own good, if not it is to their own loss.

    About the stoning you talked about, it was in the Torah of Moses, and the Gospel of Jesus. And since Allah’s religion is only one, stoning was also mentioned in the Koran.

    As for Jihad, – this beautiful word you westerners have emptied it from its real meaning, Islam has two types of Jihad, the great Jihad and the small Jihad. The small Jihad is fighting the invaders, fighting attacks on Islam, or assaults on family and property. The great Jihad is fighting the temptation of the soul against worldly pleasures. Who on earth would hate Jihad when it deals with these things.

    Now the West is afraid of radical Islam. Who nurtured and sponsored radical Islam in our countries? Who decided to wage war against Islam as a religion and burned and defiled the Koran? Who insulted the Prophet of Islam, and Allah the Creator of the universe? The West of course. Who implanted ISIS and Daesh in our countries to tear us apart. Who waged proxy wars against Muslim countries using hired Islamic militias. Who invented the term “the new Middle East” aiming at dividing it into religion and ethnic factions and sects living in small sectors without borders. Look at Iraq, Syria and Yemen, look at Afghanistan. Look at the millions Bush the son killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the millions of Syrian refugees scattered on the borders of foreign nations due to the proxy wars Obama launched through the Islamic militants he sponsored and financed.

    You say that gods (there is only One God), governments and weapons, are the reason behind the crisis of the world! Believe it or not, there is One God ruling His earthly kingdom. He created it on justice and mercy, but the western governments and weapons had torn large countries of His kingdom apart. They want to reshape the rich Muslim countries in accordance with their geostrategic needs and objectives on the expense of the lives of their people.

    They spread mischief in the land and Allah loves not corruption. Allah has descended from seven skies to confront them. are they ready for Him? Look at the financial crisis devouring the oppressors. Look at the natural disasters annihilating the world. Look at poverty pitched on the wrongdoers. They think they are on something but hey are not. Their god is science and technology. This what they call civilization. But civilization is not advancements in science and technology. Civilization is the civilization of ethics. And this is what Muslims have. They have the divine ethics of the Koran and the sayings and deeds of the Prophet. They abide by these divine rules. This is why I consider them if they abide by these rules, they are the most civilized people on earth.

    When Muslims live in western societies and are confronted with debauchery from every side, it is their right to call for the application of the Sharia on their people. They don’t apply it on others. They Jews apply their law on themselves in the western communities they live in. Why don’t you call for abandoning the Jewish law. The injunctions of the Torah are quite similar to those of the Koran. But of course you know the bad consequences that would arise if you launch such attack.

    Yes, people of the West, most of you are atheists or disbelievers or polytheists, sunk in terrible sins. Sins that became the norm of you daily lives. You forgot that there is One God ruling the universe, and is watching all you sins, iniquities, and injustice. You have brought Allah’s wrath upon you. People of the west, you have compiled sins over sins upon your heads. Stop insulting Islam, the universal religion meant for you in particular. Your insults will be laid to your charge on the Day of Judgment. Those in the West shouting that Islam – the religion of peace – is the threat, beware, take heed, for Allah’s eyes sleep not.

  2. Is Islam a violent religion?

    The Christian apologetics claim that the Koran is a violent Book and urges its adherents to kill and slaughter the innocents. But Islam in truth is the religion of peace and love. The root of the word Islam, silm, refers to “making peace”. By submitting to Allah and accepting His authority, in a peaceful environment, Muslims live peacefully with one another in the safe shade of Islam.

    Since Islam means living in a peaceful environment that emerges as a result of submission to Allah, the Koran calls all humanity to embrace silm, that is, peace, and reminds us to avoid following Satan.

    Allah says:

    “O you who believe! Come in full submission to God, all of you, (without allowing any discord among you due to worldly reasons), and do not follow in the footsteps of Satan, for indeed he is a manifest enemy to you (seeking to seduce you to rebel against God, with glittering promises) (2: 208).

    Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceful life where the infinite compassion and mercy of God manifests on earth. God calls all people to live by the moral values He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace and love can be experienced all over the world.

    “O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of Satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Holy Quran: 2, 208).

    In the verse above, Islam intrinsically calls for peace and fosters a life in absolute sincerity and honesty before God. Therefore it is vitally important for an individual to believe in God with his own will and aspiration, and observe God’s commands and advice through personal conscientious contentment.

    The Christian apologists are introduced to the Koran only through the media, generally have the impression that the Koran is a book of jihad, and jihad to them is an attempt to achieve one’s goal by means of violence. But this idea is based on misunderstanding. Anyone who reads the Koran for himself will easily appreciates that its message has nothing to do with violence. The Koran is, from beginning to end, a book which promulgates peace and in no way countenances violence. It is true that jihad is one of the teachings of the Koran, but jihad taken in its correct sense, is the name of peaceful struggle rather than of any kind of violent action.

    The Koran concept of jihad is expressed in the following verse:

    So obey not the disbelievers, but strive against them (by preaching) with the utmost endeavor with it (the Koran) (25: 52).

    Obviously the Koran is not a weapon, but a Book which gives us an introduction to the divine ideology of peaceful struggle. The method of such a struggle according to the Koran is to speak to them a word to reach their very soul.
    They (hypocrites) are those of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts; so turn aside from them (do not punish tem), but admonish them, and speak to them an effective word (i.e. to believe in Allah, worship Him, obey Him, and be afraid of Him) to reach their inner selves (4: 63).

    So, the desired approach, according to the Koran, is one which moves man’s heart and mind. That is, in addressing people’s minds, it satisfies them, convinces them of the veracity of the Koran, and brings about a, intellectual revolution within them. This is the mission of the Koran, and this mission can be only performed by means of rational arguments. This target can never be achieved by means of violence or armed action.

    It is true that there are certain verses in the Koran, which convey injunctions similar to the following:

    “Slay them wherever you find them” (2: 191).

    Referring to such verses, the Christian apologists attempt to give the impression that Islam is a religion of war and violence. This is totally untrue. Such verses relate, in a restricted sense, to those who have attacked the Muslims. The above verse does not convey the general command of Islam.

    The truth of the matter is that the Koran was not revealed in its complete from in which it exists today. It was revealed from time to time, according to the circumstances, over a time span of 23 years. If this is divided into years of war and peace, the period of peace amounts to 20 years, while that of state of war amounts only to 3 years. The revelations during these peaceful years were the peaceful teachings of Islam as are conveyed in the verses regarding the realization of God, worship, morality, justice, etc.
    This division of commands into different categories is a natural one and is found in all religious Books.

    For instance, in the Old Testament there is so much war and violence commanded by God. For example, we read” in Deuteronomy verse 16, we read: “If a city does not accept Israel’s offer of peace and open its gates, then “when the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it” (verse13). With regard to other cities, the command is (verse 16), “Do not leave anything that breathes.”

    We probably also recall that the walls of Jericho came tumbling down, and then the Israelites “destroyed with the sword every living thing in it – men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep, and donkeys” (Joshua 6:21). And we may also consider Joshua 11:20, “For it was the Lord himself who hardened their hearts to wage war against Israel, so that he might destroy them totally, exterminating them without mercy, as the Lord had commanded Moses.”

    Yet there is clearly another side to God as well. While the prophet Ezekiel does not spare the wicked in his denunciations, he also records God’s words of grace: “If a wicked man turns away from all the sins he has committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, he will surely live; he will not die” Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?” (Ezekiel 18:21, 23). And he goes on in verse 32, “For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!” And there is this compelling verse recorded in 2 Chronicles 16:9, “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

    All these descriptions of God depict him as unwavering in retribution on evil, though he takes no delight in it, and also unwavering in love and encouragement toward those hearts are turned toward him. God’s obvious desire is that sinners should repent and live. But there comes a point where evil is finally intolerable and wiped from off the earth.

    Similarly Jesus said: “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” (Mathew, 10:34).

    It would not be right to conclude that the religion preached by Jesus was one of war and violence, for such utterances relate purely to certain occasions. So far as general life is connected, Jesus taught peaceful values, such as the building up of a good character, loving each other, helping the poor and needy, etc.

    The same is true for the Koran. When the Prophet Muhammad immigrated from Makkah to Madinah, the idolatrous tribes were aggressive towards him. But the Prophet always averted their attacks by the exercise of patience and the strategy of avoidance. However on certain occasions no other options existed, save that of defense. Therefore, and according to the commands of God, he had to do battle on certain occasions. It was these circumstances, which occasioned those revelations relating to war. These commands, being specific to certain circumstances had no general application. They were not meant to be valid for all time to come. That is why; the permanent status of the Prophet has been termed as, “mercy for all mankind.” (21: 107).

    Islam is the religion of peace in the fullest sense of the word. The Koran calls its way “the paths of peace” (5: 16). It describes reconciliation as the nest policy (4: 128). And states that Allah abhors any disturbance of the peace (2: 205).

    Therefore, we must look at wars in the divine Books in their historical setting. The spread of wickedness was so pervasive that immorality, disbelief, idolatry, degradation, and barbarity invaded every facet of life. Children were sacrificed to pagan gods. Male and female prostitution took place right in the temple as part of the religious rites. Idol worship was rife and the society wholly contaminated. This evil was contagious and God’s people were in danger of being infected as well. God’s awesome judgement was finally unleashed.

    Today we have lost that black and white distinction between good and evil. Tolerance is presented as the great religious value. Indeed, tolerance of diversity is a high value in all religions, but often today tolerance is taken to mean the virtue of accepting nearly every behavior under the sun. Anything goes – in the name of tolerance! A sweeping moral relativism is the result, and children grow up with fewer and fewer moral absolutes to guide them. We seldom hear the term sin anymore, but instead a dozen much milder words are employed. Surely the Lord will not tolerate this abomination to his holiness forever.

    Violent verses in the Bible and the Koran are not an issue to stop at. The Lord is the one who is talking in His Books and not the prophets. The prophets are just transmitters of the commands and work hard to implement them. The Lord is the Creator, He creates and eliminates, and no one would dare disobey His commands but a fool willing to subject his wretched soul to a dreadful punishment in the present life and in the Hereafter. No true believer would ever dare accuse the Lord of the worlds by being violent. Every divine action or deed has behind it a deep wisdom.

    In the final reckoning, the prophets and messengers will give evidence of their teaching the truth, and the wicked will themselves have to acknowledge the truth.

    Allah says in the Noble Koran:

    “So We shall certainly question those to whom messengers were sent – and We shall question the messengers themselves – and with full knowledge, for We were never far from them, We shall tell them what they did (7: 6, 7).
    In order for the Lord to establish His religion on earth, He orders His prophets to wage wars against the disbelievers rejecting His religion. He commands the prophets and the believers to inherit their land, kill them, taking them as captives or expel them from the land. These acts are not atrocities, but purifying the land from the abomination of the disbelievers, and make it fit to accommodate the true religion.

    Saying that the commands of the Lord are violent, means opposing and rejecting His instructions, and forgetting His Lordship, for He is the Compeller, the Absolute Ruler, the victorious, the Greatest, the Creator. His punishment is exemplary for former times and for the latter, and an admonition to such as god-fearing.

    Along history Allah has destroyed many evil nations and wiped them out from the surface of the world. He is the Lord of the universe. He Creates and destroys without fearing the consequences.

    The People of Thamûd rejected the truth because of their arrogance, when the most wicked man among them rose up. Then the Messenger of God said to them, ‘This is God’s she-camel. Let her drink. But they called him a liar, and hamstrung the she-camel. So their Lord destroyed them for their crime and razed their city to the ground. He did not fear the consequences (91: 11-15).

    It is part of Allah’s wisdom that He tries His servants with goodness and evil in order that the believer might increase in his belief. Believers are commanded therefore to exercise patience with what Allah predestines in order that their reward might multiply. Trials also make Muslims fear the bad consequences of sins and therefore give them up.

    Allah says: “And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to the patient, who, when afflicted with calamity, say: “Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return. They are those on whom are blessed and will be forgiven from their Lord, and they are those who receive His Mercy, and it is they who are the guided ones.” (2: 155-156).

    Allah also says: “Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, “When (will come) the Help of Allah?” Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near! (2: 214).

    Allah also says: “and We shall make a trial of you with evil and with good. And to Us you will be returned.” (21: 35).

    All these Koranic verses point out that Allah tries His servants as He did with the preceding nations. If they exercise patience and repent and return to Him with regard to all that befalls them, they will receive His reward, forgiveness and satisfaction and they will be admitted to paradise and compensated with what is better than what they missed.

    All the signs that happen in this universe that arouse sympathy like thunderbolts, fierce wind, floods that destroy everything, earthquakes that cause great destruction to lofty buildings, great trees, properties and mankind, volcanoes that destroy all that surrounds them, solar and lunar eclipses and other things with which Allah tries His servant, are but means of frightening and warning them to give up aggression.

    This also may urge them to fear Allah and return to Him. These signs also try their patience for what Allah predestines. This means that whoever is afflicted with any of these calamities and believes that it is predestination of Allah and receives it with patience seeking His reward, Allah will guide his heart to certainty and belief. He also has to realize that what befell him was not to miss him and what missed him was not to befall him. He also should believe that Allah will compensate him with guidance in his heart and truthful certainty. Allah may also make up for him what is better than what he missed.

    Allah says: “No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but it is inscribed in the Book of Decrees before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allah. In order that you may not grieve at the things that you fail to get, nor rejoice over that which has been given to you. And Allah likes not prideful boasters.” (57: 22-23).

    Allah (may He be Praised) points out in His Glorious Book some of the punishments He sent down upon those who disobeyed His commands and deviated from the right path from among the perished nations who belied His messengers.

    “So We seized each one for his sins; some We struck with a violent storm; some of them were overcome by a sudden blast; some were swallowed up by the earth; and some We drowned. Allah did not wrong them: they wronged themselves”. (29: 40).

    In the final reckoning, the prophets and messengers will give evidence of their teaching the truth, and the wicked will themselves have to acknowledge the truth.

    Allah says in the Noble Koran:

    “So We shall certainly question those to whom messengers were sent – and We shall question the messengers themselves – and with full knowledge, for We were never far from them, We shall tell them what they did (7: 6, 7).
