Moe’s Murder Cult

October 31, 2008

The domain name was intended to mimic the title of this post. Unfortunately, I am not a good typist. We’ll have to live with it.

Everyone knows that “Islam is a great religion of peace.” . Unfortunately, they know something that is factually false. By design, Islam’s primary mission was the personal emolument & empowerment of its founder. Its mission was mercenary, and its method was martial.

The proof of those assertions is in Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition & jurisprudence. This blog’s purpose is to make its readers familiar with the essential evidence and to make it easy for readers to explore the context for themselves.

Unless otherwise noted, Qur’an Quotes are from The Noble Qur’an translated by Hilali & Khan. Hyperlinks are to ten parallel translations at

With rare exceptions, hadith are quoted from the four main collections in USC-MSA’s Compendium of Islamic Texts and are linked to named anchors in that database.

In the Resources page, you will find links to various translations & formats for further exploration. Using the links provided, you can build a substantial library.

The title of this post is justified by hadith which depict subornation of murder. These oral traditions were judged authentic by the most trusted of hadith collectors. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 45, Number 687:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

Allah’s Apostle said, “Who would kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf as he has harmed Allah and His Apostle ?” Muhammad bin Maslama (got up and) said, “I will kill him.” So, Muhammad bin Maslama went to Ka’b and said, “I want a loan of one or two Wasqs of food grains.” Ka’b said, “Mortgage your women to me.” Muhammad bin Maslama said, “How can we mortgage our women, and you are the most handsome among the Arabs?” He said, “Then mortgage your sons to me.” Muhammad said, “How can we mortgage our sons, as the people will abuse them for being mortgaged for one or two Wasqs of food grains? It is shameful for us. But we will mortgage our arms to you.” So, Muhammad bin Maslama promised him that he would come to him next time. They (Muhammad bin Maslama and his companions came to him as promised and murdered him. Then they went to the Prophet and told him about it.
