My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

MUQ has not the balls to speak-out against any wrong-doing factual or implied in the name of his religion. I know that; YOU know that AND MUQ knows full well he hasn't. You/we waste time even considering otherwise.

It is strange comment on what I posted....where is the amorality in my post?
Di you post a "mechanical sort of comment" or you did it after studying my post? I do not think so.
You have been asked many moral questions, and you have never responded to them. That would tend show that you agree with the premise of the questionable acts being asked and do not find then offensive humanity.

The amorality in question is your inability to response to a moral question.

Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-7

Enemies of Islam represent our prophet as a very cruel and blood thirsty man, who would kill his “opponents, enemies and any one who disagreed with him” at “the drop of hat” and all his adversaries would be “terrified” at the mere sight of him.

The picture is far from true, let us look at some incidents from the life of prophet, as what was “this sword which killed the enmity for ever”

The Case of : One Jew in Medina

His name is mentioned in Islamic books of history, he was a wealthy Jew in Medina, he wanted to test the perseverance and patience of the prophet, and was looking for some suitable opportunity to arise.

Once prophet had to borrow some money from him, to meet some immediate need. He gave the money and the period of repayment of due was fixed.

While there were still some days remaining for the grace period, he approached Prophet, while he was teaching a group of his companions, including Omar Bin Khattab.

The Jew addressed prophet like this “O Mohammad, when will you repay my due? I know the clan of Hashim, they are never true to their trust, it seems you will never return my money”.

His companions were stunned by the tone and charge of the Jew, Omar stood up and said “O enemy of Allah, do you not realize, to whom you are speaking? O prophet of Allah, allow me and I will kill him”.

“Omar calm down” said the prophet,“You should have spoken with justice, you should have asked me to pay my debt, and you should have asked him to be polite in his demand”

“Now you go and pay him the dues” said Prophet to Omar “And give him some more, because of the anxiety which you caused him”

The Jew came back some time later with money and said to prophet “I only wanted to test your patience, I am now convinced of your faith, I declare my faith and become Muslim, and this money, I give in charity in the cause of Allah”

This is story of Jew who was slain by the “Sword of Patience”!!

Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-8



The Case of : One old Woman of Makkah

Old women are very steadfast in their religion and faith. It is not easy for them to change their religion or faith easily and they look with contempt on any one who tries that. This is impression of any one who has experience is propagation of faith.

There was an Old women in Makkah, who was very firm in the faith of Makkan people, when she came to know that our prophet is condemning that faith and had started a “New religion”……she started hating our prophet with extreme hatred.

It so happened that The Woman, was residing on the first floor of the house and prophet had to walk by her house, when he used to go out for any business.

The woman kept watch and whenever prophet will walk under her balcony, she would throw dust and garbage on his head, under the pretext of cleaning her house and balcony. Prophet would move away, cleaning his hairs and clothes from the dirt.

It so happened that once three days passed and nothing was thrown from that balcony. On fourth day, prophet became curious, he went up the stairs and knocked at the door. He found the old woman sick and with fever and no one to take care for her.

The prophet consoled her, and gave her some water and went to bring some medicine for her. When prophet was returning from the house, the Old woman called him back and said “I was so wrong about you and your message, I now repent and accept your faith”

With that she declared Islamic Creed “I witness that there is no deity except Allah and Mohammad is His Messenger”!!

Such is the case of another enemy of prophet “slain” by the “Sword of Kindness”

I reply to posts which I think are pertinent and not rhetoric and the person has some genuine doubts or query or wants to know something.

I refuse to answers question that make tangent attacks on Islam and generalize actions of few on whole community.

I am here to defend Islam and its teaching not to justify actions of a particular Muslim, a particular leader or a particular country and its rulers.

Ask me about Islam and its teachings and not what Muslims are doing.... if majority of Muslims were living according to teachings of Islam, most of people in the world by this time would have become Muslims.

But we cannot stop telling people about Islam and its teachings until all Muslims become True Muslims.... otherwise these non Muslims will accuse us in the hereafter that these Muslims never told us about Islam and its teachings.

Muslim Dawah activities are continuing amongst Muslims also and most of our time is spending on reforming Muslims.... but we also tell non muslims about Islam to save us from their accusations in the hereafter.

Otherwise we would have kept our mouth shut and not speak or write a single word.

The picture is far from true, let us look at some incidents from the life of prophet, as what was “this sword which killed the enmity for ever”
The Case of : HIND BINT UTBAH BIN RABEAH
A. Early History:
She was the daughter of Utbah bin Rabeah, one of the Chiefs of Makkah. She was wife of Abu Sufian, another Chief of Makkah and she was the mother of Muawiah , Fifth Caliph of Islamic state. So from every angle her was a dignified position.
When prophet declared his mission in Makkah, both her father Utbah and her husband Abu Sufian became staunch enemies of Islam. She inherited hatred of Islam from both directions and was enemy of Islam by any standard.
When prophet migrated to Medina and the first battle took place between Makkan and Muslims at the place of Badr, her husband was leading the Trade Caravan, which was one reason for the battle. Her father was head of Makkan army.
Her father, her uncle and her brother (Utbah, Shaibah and Waleed) were the first three Makkan who were killed in individual combats, before the general fighting started. They were killed by Hamzah, prophet’s Uncle, Ali, Prophet’s cousin and Ubaidah, prophets cousin.
These three deaths of close family members at the hands of so close relatives of prophet, made her almost mad with rage.
B. Hind and the Battle of Ohud:
This battle which took place in 3AH was to take the revenge for the battle of Badr. In this battle, Hind was leading groups of Makkan women that were singing battle songs and encouraging their men to fight.
Hind devised a plan to kill Hamzah, the uncle of prophet, who had killed her father and brother at Badr. She told one Abyssinian slave that if he killed Hamzah, he would be set free. The slave looked for Hamzah and finding an opportunity, killed him with his lance.
When news reached Hind, she found the corpse of Hamzah, cut his nose and ears and hung them as garland around her neck…..then she opened his stomach and took out the liver….she tried to chew it, but spat after a few bites.
And she left the corpse of Hamzah in that condition in the battle field. Following her action, other Makkan women disfigured corpses of other martyred Muslims.
When prophet saw the condition of his uncle’s body after the end of battle, he was extremely pained….he vowed to do the same to copses of unbelievers, but was told by God to refrain from it.
This incident shows the spiteful nature and passion of that great woman!!

Nope Muq who's initials stand for Muhammad's ugly queer longs for society to return to the dark ages. He is firmly against women getting equal education or rights and praises the barbaric animals who kill them for speaking out.

Well, he can live his with his head up his arse if that's what he wants, but a growing number of this world's population have no choice, thanks to people like him with that shit in their heads.

It's spreading, and people in the 'free world' need to be on their guard.

Even in Islam slowly but surely the youth are slipping away and not nearly as dedicated as Muslims from even 20 years ago. Many claim to stay in Islam so they don't get gunned down but once Islam starts moving away from that just watch how many full scale flee from it.

I think it's true that a lot of younger muslims don't actually believe in the religion in a divine sense, but some stay loyal to it in a gang-like mentality and others tow the line because they're too frightened to do anything else.

20 years ago muslims in the UK were much more westernised than they are now. You rarely saw young muslims with beards or hijabs. 9/11 and subsequent events have made these people a lot more militant and defiant to their host cultures than ever before.
