An analytical look at Islamic origins, myths and hypocricy.

It has been said by many Muslims that Islam celebrates death just as everyone else celebrates life. That is why so many Muslims believe in suicide bombers. Islam has a morbid fascination with death, blood, amputations and beheadings and other barbaric acts. Other practices of this group support the contention that Islam is more of a cult than a religion and in no way fits its own description as a "Religion of Peace".  Source: Wikipedia, Definition of a Cult: "In traditional usage, the cult of a religion, quite apart from its sacred writings ("scriptures"), its theology or myths, or the personal faith of its believers, is the totality of external religious practice and observance, the neglect of which is the definition of impiety. The word cult pejoratively refers to a group whose beliefs or practices are considered abnormal or bizarre. The word originally denoted a system of ritual practices."

Above: Islamic celebration: Day of Ashura.
Definition of Bizarre and Abnormal practices: Islamic Sharia Law, which is derived from Mohammad’s commands in Sera 005.038 in the Qur’an that order the cutting off the hand of a thief or chopping off their fingers, a 7th Century practice still followed today in Muslim countries. Three translations from USC Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement.
YUSUFALI: As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.
PICKTHAL: 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.
SHAKIR: And (as for) the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands as a punishment for what they have earned, an exemplary punishment from Allah; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.
The religious cult called Islam was invented by Muhammad some 20 years before his death in the year 632 A.D. History notes that Muhammad was mobilizing an army to attack the cities of Medina and Mecca when he invented Islam and his preachings to his followers, that became the substance of the Qur'an, were more like a code of conduct for warfare than a celebration of spiritual uplifting. Claiming his words came from the god Allah, Muhammad united the conflicting tribes in Medina, and after eight years of fighting with the Meccan tribes, his followers, who by then had grown to 10,000, conquered Mecca.
Hardly the typical words from a spiritual leader, the following passages from the Qur'an show the war time orders issued by Muhammad. As a whole, the Qur'an could be interpreted as a Field Manual for warfare. USC Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement provides these translations: 
YUSUFALI: It is not fitting for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. Ye look for the temporal goods of this world; but Allah looketh to the Hereafter: And Allah is Exalted in might, Wise.
PICKTHAL: It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise.
SHAKIR: It is not fit for a prophet that he should take captives unless he has fought and triumphed in the land; you desire the frail goods of this world, while Allah desires (for you) the hereafter; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

YUSUFALI: But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good: but fear Allah: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
PICKTHAL: Now enjoy what ye have won, as lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
SHAKIR: Eat then of the lawful and good (things) which you have acquired in war, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Wikipedia notes that: “The Qur'an was reportedly written down by Muhammad's companions (sahabah) while he was alive. The numerous quotes herein come from different articles in Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia as well as recognized authoritative sources.
In other words, like the religious concept of Islam itself, the Qur’an did not exist prior to 610 A.D. but Muhammad attempted to add relevance to his quasi-religious preachings by referring to the past biblical prophets Abraham, Moses and Jesus as part of his religion and added his own name as the latest prophet. Wikipedia also notes that: “Muslim historical traditions first began developing from the earlier 7th century with the reconstruction of Muhammad's life following his death. (Muhammad died in the year 670 A.D.)” As a point of interest in analyzing this timeline, the abbreviation A.D. that follows the dates above stands for Anno Domini, a Latin expression that means “In the year of our Lord”. Wikipedia clarifies this: “The term Anno Domini is Medieval Latin, translated as In the year of (the/Our) Lord. It is sometimes specified more fully as Anno Domini Nostri Iesu (Jesu) Christi ("In the Year of Our Lord Jesus Christ"), although Islam uses a different calendar as noted in the referenced article at the end.
In the concept of “worship” pagans were people who worshiped idols and assigned to them different aspects of some form of deity, such as a “sun god” or “moon god”. These deities were then associated with symbols and the “moon god” was depicted as a crescent moon. Coincidentally, the crescent moon is a symbol often associated with Islam and, in fact, is a fixture that sits atop every mosque. One of the pagan gods in pre-Islamic Arabia was named Hubal and in Wikipedia it says, “One notable center of Hubal-worship is said to have been at the Kaaba at Mecca, prior to the religious reforms instituted by Muhammad in AD 630.” And later it says: “Some scholars have suggested that the Islamic god Allah is a version of Hubal, a link which would also explain Islam's use of the crescent moon as its symbol and the presence of many Arabic, pre-Islamic rituals.”

Allah is the Arabic word that means "god" and the name that Muslims call their god but they only did so after Muhammad invented the religious cult of Islam. Back to Wikipedia again and it says this about Allah: “The name was previously used by pagan Meccans as a reference to the creator deity, possibly the supreme deity in pre-Islamic Arabia. The concepts associated with the term Allah (as a deity) differ among religious traditions. In pre-Islamic Arabia amongst pagan Arabs, Allah was not considered the sole divinity, having associates and companions, sons and daughters–a concept which Islam thoroughly and resolutely did away with.” The word “Islam” means “submission” in Arabic and since Muhammad was the only “messenger of Allah” it basically translated to submitting to Muhammad. Since Muhammad was a brutally barbaric leader, the act of submission was the only practical way of staying alive. As noted elsewhere in the revealing study, Statistical Islam written by the Center For The Study Of Political Islam, the Qur'an contains more references to hate and killing and barbarism than spiritual uplifting as Christians think of religion.
The article following this is the complete text from an Islamic web site instructing Muslims on how to deal with the Christian celebration of Christmas, which was the birth of Jesus Christ. It has been taken from an Islamic web site concerned with educating Muslims in proper conduct per the Qur'an and Islamic Sharia Law. Note how this Muslim scholar has proclaimed that Jesus was created by the Islamic god Allah in spite of the historical fact that Jesus was born over 600 years before Islam came to exist. This scholarly opinion should be kept in mind when you read about Muslims pretending to participate in multi-cultural diversities with other religions. Their true intentions are made very clear in the final paragraph from the pro-Muslim web site quoted below that reads:

“Consequently, celebrating with Christians and congratulating them on Christmas is prohibited, regardless of the intention. If one does so while approving of their religion, he is an apostate. Allaah The Exalted Says (what means): {And whoever desires other than Islam as religion -- never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.} [Quran 3: 58]”
To understand Islam is to know about Muhammad and his teachings that "war is deceit". It is written in
Bukhari (52:269) - "The Prophet said, 'War is deceit.'"  For this is known as the practice of Taqiyya – the command to all Muslims to lie to non-Muslims to advance and defend the cause of Islam. A very informative video called “3 Things you didn’t know about Islam” contains the following passage describing Taqiyya.

Muslims are allowed to deceive non-Muslims if it helps Islam. For non-Muslims this principle, called Taqiyya is another surprising concept of Islam. While most other religions speak highly of truthfulness the Qur’an instructs Muslims to lie to non-Muslims about their beliefs and their political ambitions to protect and spread Islam. There are many examples of today’s Islamic leaders saying one thing in English for the Western press and then saying something entirely different to their own followers in Arabic a few days later. Deceiving the enemy is always useful in war and Islam is at war with the non-Islamic world until the whole world follows Shari’a Law. All non-Muslims living in non-Islamic states are therefore enemies. So deceiving Westerners is totally acceptable – even encouraged – if it can forward the goals of the spread of Islam.

Similarly, Qur’an 3:28 enjoins believers not to take the company of doubters unless as a means of safeguarding themselves. “Let not the believers take those who deny the truth for their allies in preference to the believers – since he who does this cuts himself off from God in everything – unless it be to protect yourself against them in this way…” Regarding 3:28, Ibn Kathir, a prominent authority writes, "Whoever at any time or place fears their [infidels'] evil may protect himself through outward show." As proof of this, he quotes Muhammad's companion, al-Hassan, who said, “taqiyya is acceptable till the Day of Judgment [i.e., in perpetuity].”
Another excellent example of Taqiyya, or “religious deception” in action is depicted on the web site An Inquiry into Islam, which bills itself as "A non-racist, unbigoted inquiry into the core teachings of Islam and what it all means (if anything) for non-Muslims" in a story "What is Taqiyya?" Compare this information with the official Islamic instruction to Muslims on why it is against Islam to acknowledge Christmas. Then consider Muslims who attend diversity meetings with religious leaders of other faiths. Can they in all honesty do so in view of this command from Mohammed in Sera 005.051 in the Qur'an?
YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians 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.
SHAKIR: O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. 
This is the true face of Islam as instructed by Islamic scholars, not the face that terrorist supporter groups like CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, propagandize in the sympathetic leftist American news media.
Participating in Christmas and other Christian festivals - I

Jumaadaa Al-Oula 8, 1432
It is an indisputable fact that ‘Eesa (Jesus) may Allaah exalt his mention was sent by Allaah The Almighty. He was one of the Prophets of Allaah The Almighty whom He sent to the Children of Israel to call them to worship Allaah The Almighty alone with no partners beside Him.

Another established fact is that the children of Israel afflicted him with harm and intended to crucify him. Nevertheless, Allaah The Almighty raised him. Then they distorted the message with which he had been sent. The Jew, Saul – later known as Paul – embraced Christianity after ‘Eesa may Allaah exalt his mention had been raised. Although he had been one of his most bitter enemies and had tortured his followers, he claimed belief in ‘Eesa may Allaah exalt his mention.
Subsequently, he attained a lofty position in Christianity and this enabled him to distort and change the divine law that had been brought by ‘Eesa may Allaah exalt his mention. In this way Christianity became the Doctrine of Trinity and polytheism after it had once been a monotheistic religion. Paul decided what is lawful and unlawful in the name of God, the Father, and Jesus, the Son. Thus, true Christianity disappeared and was replaced by a distorted creed. Roman emperors such as the Emperor Constantine established this distortion for worldly interests.

A variety of reasons led to the distortion of Christianity and the Sacred book (the Bible). The Bible was not written at the time of ‘Eesa may Allaah exalt his mention. The Gospels are attributed to the disciples. However, the authenticity of its authorship is doubted because there is no authentic evidence to prove this. Indeed, proof indicates the opposite, and Christian scholars gave testimony to this.

It has been historically established that the Christian clergy added some things and omitted other things in the Bible. Hence, there are different versions of the Bible and there is clear inconsistency and discrepancies among them, which they acknowledge and cannot deny. They still commit innovations in a religion which has been distorted since the first century of its inception, and was changed from the right path to accommodate personal interests and whims.

Consequently, today we face a false religion whose fallacy is established by all criteria whether they are based on text, transmission, history or reason.
In the Quran, Allaah The Almighty stated that the People of the Book had distorted their religion and changed it. He Says (what means): {And from those who say, "We are Christians" We took their covenant; but they forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded.} [Quran 5: 14]

Historically, there is no consistent chain of transmission for the Gospels. The Christians themselves are aware of this.

Unreasonably, they insist that there are three gods in one, which is completely illogical.  

Consequently, since the religion is distorted, therefore, its acts of worship and rituals are also distorted and false. In this case, is it justifiable and acceptable that the Muslim participates in the rituals of a distorted religion or congratulates its followers on these occasions? What is the meaning of participation and congratulation?

It indicates approving their distorted religion, accepting it and being satisfied with it. All this implies belief in the soundness of this religion. When one realizes this, and despite this, insists on participating and congratulating them on their festivals, this shows disbelief because this is a state of satisfaction with disbelief and belying Allaah The Almighty .

If the participation or congratulation has another motive, like complimenting them or flattery, then the following are the reasons behind this:  
- When one is forced to do so, as in the case of coercion or fear of unbearable harm if one declines to do that. In such a case, one is forced to do so, and he is considered blameless on account of his helplessness and weakness. Such a person is even permitted to outwardly declare disbelief in this case, and he is consequently blameless for deeds lesser than this.
- When one aims at bringing himself closer to them with this action while he believes that their religion is false. This involves taking a risk because he is encouraging them to remain steadfast on their religion and think that they are rightly guided. These are natural feelings when they see the one who normally objects to their religion and tries to unveil their deviation, agreeing with and taking part in their religious ceremonies. Actually, the greatest temptation occurs when those who follow the true religion participate with those who are not on the right path in their falsehood and even declare their approval and consent. .Does this not imply deception and distraction from seeking guidance and following it?
- If one participates and congratulates them out of showing love and affection so that he will be able to call them to Islam, this is actually a good intention, but this manner of Islamic propagation is invalid. How will they respond to him when he voluntarily participates in their falsehood and neither calls them nor offers them advice to abandon it?
Consequently, celebrating with Christians and congratulating them on Christmas is prohibited, regardless of the intention. If one does so while approving of their religion, he is an apostate. Allaah The Exalted Says (what means): {And whoever desires other than Islam as religion -- never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.} [Quran 3: 58]
The goal of Islam is to dominate the world and eradicate all other religions. Islam is far more than anything perceived to be just a religion. Islam is a total cultural, political, militaristic, controlling order that regulates every aspect of the Muslim life and family. It permits the practice of "honor killings" of family members who feel insulted by simple acts not deemed acceptable in Islam such as a female member who uses a cell phone or dresses in Western fashion. Islam is readily financed in America by the vast wealth produced by oil-rich Arab nations. The government of Saudi Arabia has financed the construction of almost all the mosques built in America in the past few decades and along with that financial support came the importation of the radical anti-American Wahabbi sect. A study conducted by the NGO Freedom House found Wahhabi publications in mosques in the United States. These publications included statements that Muslims should not only "always oppose" infidels "in every way", but "hate them for their religion ... for Allah's sake", that democracy "is responsible for all the horrible wars of the 20th century", and that Shia and certain Sunni Muslims were infidels. We now know that 14 of the 19 Muslim terrorists who attacked America on Sept. 11th 2001 came from Saudi Arabia. The U.S. Justice Dept. identified hundreds of Muslim groups working in America that it classified as unindicted co-conspirators to the Holy Land Foundation terrorist funding trials in Dallas, Texas. We know that dozens of attempted plots to kill thousands of Americans since 2001 have been planned and attempted by Muslim fanatics who were encourage by the preachings they heard in dozens of mosques. We know that Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hassan, a Muslim who killed 14 unarmed soldiers in Ft. Hood, Texas declared himself to be a "Soldier of Allah" on his business card and shouted "Allahu Akbar", Allah is Great, while shooting his victims. Maj. Hassan was also influenced by radical Muslim cleric in a Virginia mosque. The authoritative group The Investigative Project on Terrorism has identified these mosques on an interactive map on their web site. Click the map to jump to the IPT web site and you can click on each place holder for details on the terrorist activity.
And we know that Islamic Sharia Law strongly opposes all Freedom of Speech that our U.S. Constitution gives us. The riots in Afghanistan that killed 20 UN staff workers was a result of a Florida pastor who burned a Qur'an. It is perfectly acceptable for Muslims to burn Christian bibles, Christian churches and slaughter Christian worshipers but to burn their holy book is considered the worst offense against Islam. In America we tolerate all forms of freedom of expression and Muslims who choose to live here must accept this. Instead, many Muslims hold the belief that they should not acknowledge any form of government or laws made by man and only abide by their Sharia Laws. That makes them the worst of all hypocrites.

  1. This is the most ridiculous, misleading information I have ever read.

  2. Mary Iqbal, "Ridiculous" is a subjective term, it represents only your opinion. Every entry in this post contains the documented source. From my point of view, that is hardly misleading.
