THE THEOLOGY OF ISLAM #4
THE ISLAMIC RELIGION TAKES THIS LITERALLY "THE MONTH OF RAMADAN IN WHICH WAS REVEALED THE QURAN, A GUIDANCE FOR MANKIND, AND CLEAR PROOFS OF THE GUIDANCE, AND THE CRITERION [OF RIGHT AND WRONG]. AND WHOSOEVER OF YOU IS PRESENT, LET HIM FAST THE MONTH, AND WHOSOEVER OF YOU IS SICK OR ON A JOURNEY, [LET HIM FAST THE SAME] NUMBER OF OTHER DAYS. ALLAH DESIRETH FOR YOU EASE; HE DESIRETH NOT HARDSHIP FOR YOU; AND [HE DESIRETH] THAT YOU SHOULD COMPLETE THE PERIOD, AND THAT YOU SHOULD MAGNIFY ALLAH FOR HAVING GUIDED YOU, AND THAT PERADVENTURE YE MAY BE THANKFUL" (Surah 2, verse 185. Quran fifth US edition 2009)
THIS VERSE IS EARLY ON IN THE QURAN. MUSLIMS HAVE NO TROUBLE TAKING IT LITERALLY, AS THEY DO THIS "AND WHEN YE GO FORTH IN THE LAND, IT IS NO SIN FOR YOU TO CURTAIL [YOUR] WORSHIP IF YE FEAR THAT THOSE WHO DIS-BELIEVE MAY ATTACK YOU. IN TRUTH THE DIS-BELIEVERS ARE AN OPEN ENEMY TO YOU" (Surah 4, verse 101. Quran fifth US edition 2009).
PROBABLY AT SOME TIME IN HISTORY MANY MUSLIMS HAVE HAD TO PRACTICE THIS. THIS IS ALSO IN THE EARLY PART OF THE QURAN.
SO IS THIS EARLY ON "AND THEY WHO DISBELIEVE AND DENY OUR REVELATIONS, SUCH ARE RIGHTFUL OWNERS OF HELL" (Surah 5, verse 10. Quran fifth US edition 2009).
SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS IF YOU ARE NOT ISLAMIC IN RELIGION, YOU ARE THE RIGHTFUL OWNERS OF HELL; PRETTY PLAIN IDEOLOGY, BUT OF COURSE SOME COULD CLAIM SOME CHRISTIANITY TEACHES THE SAME. SO KINDA EVEN ON THAT SORE.
NOW NOT MANY PAGES FOLLOWING ARE THESE VERSES:
"The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom. Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. O ye who believe! Be mindful for your duty to Allah, and seek the way of approach unto Him, and strive in His way in order that ye may succeed. As for those who DISBELIEVE, lo! if all that is in the earth were theirs, and as much again therewith, to ransom them from the doom on the Day of Resurrection, it would not be accepted from them. Theirs will be a painful doom. They will wish to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it. Theirs will be a lasting doom. As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment, from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise. But whoso repenteth after his wrongdoing and amendeth, lo! Allah will relent towards him. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful" (Surah 5, verses 33-39. Quran fifth US edition 2009).
NICE TO KNOW ALLAH CAN BE MERCIFUL TOWARDS THOSE WHO REPENT AND ACCEPT THE MUSLIM RELIGION. BUT IF NOT.....WELL YOU HAVE READ WHAT THE ISLAMIC RELIGION TEACHES.
I'M REMINDED OF ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO, I WAS VISITING IN ENGLAND. MY PARENTS TOOK ME TO VISIT A COUPLE THEY'D KNOWN FOR A LONG TIME. DURING THE VISIT THE MAN SAID HE HAD WORKED FOR A BRITISH COMPANY IN SAUDI ARABIA. HE SAID IT WAS QUITE THE EXPERIENCE, AND ONE EXPERIENCE WAS THAT THE BANKS THERE, THE MONEY VAULT WERE WIDE OPEN, WITH MILLIONS JUST OUT IN THE OPEN. HE SAID NO PERSON WOULD HOLD UP A BANK AND STEAL MONEY..... THEY WOULD HAVE THEIR HANDS CUT OFF!
NOW ABOUT THE STANDARD OR JUDGING:
"Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are DISBELIEVERS......Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah has revealed: such are WRONGDOERS......Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed; such are EVIL-LIVERS" (Surah 5, verses 44, 45, 47. Quran, fifth US edition 2009).
THESE WORDS ARE ALL IN THE FIRST 79 PAGES OF THE QURAN I'M COPYING THEM FROM.
IF MUSLIMS BELIEVE THE OTHER VERSES I'VE QUOTED IN THERSE FOUR PARTS SO FAR; THEY HAVE TO ALSO BELIEVE THE ONES IN THIS FOURTH PART I'M QUOTING.
WE FINISH THIS "JUDGING" SECTION WITH:
"So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires, but be ware of them lest they seduce thee from some part of that which Allah hath revealed unto thee. And if they turn away, then know that Allah's will is to smite them for the sin of theirs. Lo! many of mankind are evil-livers" (Surah 5, verse 49).
SMITE THEM.....HUMMMM..... DOES THIS REMIND YOU OF SO-CALLED "HONOR KILLING"?
BACK TO HAVING "FRIENDS"
"O ye believers! Take not the JEW and CHRISTIAN for FRIENDS. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is [one] of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk..... Your friend can only be Allah; and His messenger and who BELIEVE, who establish worship and pay the poor-due, and bow down [in prayer]" (Surah 5, verses 51, 55).
"But those who DISBELIEVE and deny our revelations, they are owners of HELL-FIRE” (Surah 5, verse 86).
THESE ARE SOME OF THE OUTLANDISH VERSES AND TEACHINGS OF ISLAM, UP TO PAGE 86 OF THE QURAN I HAVE.
CAN YOU SEE WHY AYAAN HIRSI ALI HAD TO WRITE HER BOOK CALLED "HERETIC - Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now"
ALL MUSLIMS NEED TO READ HER BOOK; ALL WESTERN POLITICIANS NEED TO READ HER BOOK; ALL GRADE 12 STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE TO READ HER BOOK; YOU NEED TO READ HER BOOK!!
OH YES, THIS IS NOT "RADICAL" ISLAM; THIS IS JUST THE TEACHINGS OF ISLAM PERIOD!!
THIS IS WHY IT IS TRULY IMPOSSIBLE FOR DEDICATED REAL ISLAMIC BELIEVERS, TO EVER ASSIMILATE OR MERGE INTO WESTERN NATIONS.
THOSE WHO DO MERGE INTO THE WESTERN NATIONS ARE NOT REAL ISLAMIC, THEY ARE ISLAMIC ONLY BY NAME AND SOME OF THE TEACHINGS OF THE QURAN.
