Myth vs Fact #96

April 9, 2010
Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 24:53 They swear by Allâh their strongest oaths, that if only you would order them, they would leave (their homes for fighting in Allâh’s Cause). Say: “Swear you not; (this) obedience (of yours) is known (to be false). Verily, Allâh knows well what you do.”
Tafsir The Treachery of the Hypocrites and the Attitude of the Believers

Leaving your home, going out and emigrating are euphemisms for joining the Jihad, which is offensive warfare.  Hypocrites are “moderate” Muslims who do not want to  join the Jihad.  This receives explicit expression in  9:38.

Myth vs Fact #95

April 9, 2010
Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 22:78 And strive hard in Allah’s Cause as you ought to strive (with sincerity and with all your efforts that His Name should be superior). He has chosen you (to convey His Message of Islamic Monotheism to mankind by inviting them to His religion, Islam), and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship, it is the religion of your father Ibrahim (Abraham) (Islamic Monotheism). It is He (Allah) Who has named you Muslims both before and in this (the Qur’an), that the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) may be a witness over you and you be witnesses over mankind! So perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), give Zakat and hold fast to Allah [i.e. have confidence in Allah, and depend upon Him in all your affairs] He is your Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.), what an Excellent Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.) and what an Excellent Helper!

What did they do? They migrated in Allah’s cause. How would migration result in being killed?  Why would migration  bear a great reward?

Migration is a code word for “fighting in  in Allah’s cause”, aka. Jihad.

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 22:39 Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allâh is Able to give them (believers) victory.

Jihad in Islam  was ordained in three dispensations, related to the power possessed by Moe and his army: prohibited, defensive & offensive.  In this ayeh,  Allah is giving Moe permission to retaliate against Mekkah as his army grew after the migration to Medina.

Moe is co-opting Biblical Prophets as warlords, setting up precedents to rationalize his empire building.  He predicts victory for Islam and eternal damnation for his victims.
