Myth vs Fact #95

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!

Myth vs Fact #94

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 22:58 Those who emigrated in the Cause of Allah and after that were killed or died, surely, Allah will provide a good provision for them. And verily, it is Allah Who indeed is the Best of those who make provision.
Tafsir The Great Reward for Those Who migrate in the Cause of Allah

The Disbelievers will remain in Doubt and Confusion

Bottom
Line
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.
Tafsir Permission to fight; this is the first Ayah of Jihad

Good News of Allah’s Defence for the Believers

Bottom
Line
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.

Islam: Religion of peace. 17:6 Then We gave you once again, a return of victory over them. And We helped you with wealth and children and made you more numerous in man power.

Moe sets up Israel as a precedent for conquest and  sets a foundation for demonizing the Jews.


Myth vs Fact #91 Myth Fact

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 14:15 But they (the Messengers) sought victory and help [from their Lord (Allâh)], and every obstinate, arrogant dictator (who refuses to believe in the Oneness of Allâh) was brought to a complete loss and destruction.
Tafsir Disbelievers reject Prophethood because the Messengers were Humans!

Disbelieving Nations threaten Their Messengers with Expulsion

How the Disbelievers sought to hasten on the Punishment, and what happened to Them

Bottom
Line
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.


Myth vs Fact #90

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 13:41 See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.
Tafsir
Bottom Line: Allah expands Dar al-Islam by shrinking Dar al-Harb by means of raids across borders, seizing territory. Learn, and know that this fatal fact is confirmed by Islamic law. I quote from Umdat as-Salik Book O, Chapter 24, Section 9, which lists 8 duties of local rulers under the Caliph.

-8- and if the area has a border adjacent to enemy lands, an eighth duty arises, namely to undertake jihad against enemies, dividing the spoils of battle among combatants, and setting aside fifth (def: o10.3) for deserving recipients.


Myth vs Fact #89

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 9:123 O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).
Tafsir

Bottom Line: This ayeh is a clear order to make war on Kaffirun. Note the titles of the first & last listed tafsir. This obviously confirms 9:29.

Myth vs Fact #88

February 24, 2009
Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 9:122 And it is not (proper) for the believers to go out to fight (Jihâd) all together. Of every troop of them, a party only should go forth, that they (who are left behind) may get instructions in (Islâmic) religion, and that they may warn their people when they return to them, so that they may beware (of evil).
Tafsir Rewards of Jihad

The Story of the Jinns listening to the Qur’an

Allah the Exalted here explains His order to Muslims to march forth with the Messenger of Allah for the battle of Tabuk.

Bottom Line: This ayeh makes the nexus between aggression and ‘religion’ extremely clear,  beyond doubt.

Myth vs Fact #87

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 9:120 It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allah’s Messenger (Muhammad SAW when fighting in Allah’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allah, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allah wastes not the reward of the Muhsinun
Tafsir Allah the Exalted here explains His order to Muslims to march forth with the Messenger of Allah for the battle of Tabuk.

Rewards of Jihad

The Order to speak the Truth

Bottom Line: This Surah is about the gazwat against Tabuk. Its purpose is to reprimand those who refused to join the expedition.  Tabk was an offensive mission. Note that inflicting injury upon an enemy is a deed of righteousness. You are looking at clear proof of the fact that Islam is aggressive, not peaceful.

Myth vs Fact #86

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 9:111 Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .
Tafsir The Difference between Masjid At-Taqwa and Masjid Ad-Dirar

The Pledge of Ar-Ridwan

The Sincere Believer prefers pleasing Allah

Bottom Line: This ayeh defines the Master: slave relationship between Allah and Muslims. What do they because he purchased them? The bargain is referred to as a commerce in As-Saff 10-13.
