Myth vs Fact #101

February 27, 2011
Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 33:18 Allâh already knows those among you who keep back (men) from fighting in Allâh’s Cause, and those who say to their brethren “Come here towards us,” while they (themselves) come not to the battle except a little
Tafsir How the Believers were tested, and the Position of the Hypocrites during the Battle of Al-Khandaq
Bottom Line: Is there anything more important to Islam than jihad?
Turn to page 449 of The  Life of Muhammad and read about this in detail.

Continue to page 451 and examine the story containing this quote: [Emphasis added.]

“I said: ‘0 you, dearer than father or mother, what is the meaning of this light beneath your pick as you strike?’ He said: ‘Did you
really see that, Salman? The first means that God has opened up to me the Yaman; the second Syria and the west; and the third the east.’ One whom I dp not suspect told me that Abu Hurayra used to say when these
countries were conquered in the time of ‘Umar and ‘Uthman and after, ‘Conquer where you will, by God, you have not conquered and to the resurrection day you will not conquer a city whose keys God had not given
beforehand to Muhammad.”

Myth vs Fact #100

February 27, 2011
Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 33:16 Say (O Muhammad to these hypocrites who ask your permission to run away from you): “Flight will not avail you if you flee from death or killing, and then you will enjoy no more than a little while!”
Tafsir How the Believers were tested, and the Position of the Hypocrites during the Battle of Al-Khandaq
Bottom Line: Moe accused those who fled from battle of cowardice and warned them that if they were scheduled to die, Allah would get them on or off the battle field.  See 3:140…143 and 3:154.


Myth vs Fact #99

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 29:10 Of mankind are some who say: “We believe in Allâh,” but if they are made to suffer for the sake of Allâh, they consider the trial of mankind as Allâh’s punishment, and if victory comes from your Lord, (the hypocrites) will say: “Verily! We were with you (helping you).” Is not Allâh Best Aware of what is in the breast of the ‘Alamîn (mankind and jinns).
Tafsir The Attitudes of the Hypocrites and the Ways in which Allah tests People
Bottom Line Jihad is a means of testing. Refer to 3:140. “suffer for the sake of Allâh” is a code phrase for jihad.

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 vs Fact #90

February 24, 2009
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

February 24, 2009
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

February 24, 2009
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

February 24, 2009
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.

Myth vs Fact #85

February 24, 2009
Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 9:90 And those who made excuses from the bedouins came (to you, O Prophet)asking your permission to exempt them (from the battle), and those who had lied to Allâh and His Messenger sat at home (without asking the permission for it); a painful torment will seize those of them who disbelieve.
Tafsir After Allah mentioned the sins of the hypocrites, He praised the faithful believers and described their reward in the Hereafter
Bottom Line: Shirking Jihad proves you a disbeliever and condemns you to the fire. What will save you from the fire? Participation in Jihad. See As-Saff 10-13.
