Islam's cult of Allah and Muhammad's terror

This next series of posts has less to do with discussing Islam with Muslims, and more to do with non-Muslim ignorance to the vicious cult of Islam. I decided to write this post after receiving many questions by non-Muslims and seeing many lies and obfuscations by Muslims.

Most non-Muslims will often repeat the Muslim propaganda that Islam means "peace." They will often follow that up with Quran quotes that make the "peaceful" point or a paraphrase of said points. I admit that I did the same thing immediately after 9-11...before I spent the time to read the Quran. Then, I spent some time reading the Hadith, and my mistakes became even more clear. Both "religion of peace" propaganda points are false.

Meaning of Islam

The first point is a plain old lie. Islam means "submission." You can check this anywhere on the web, and two simple sources are the Wikipedia for Islam and an Islamic site called Here's Wikipedia:
The word Islām is derived from the Arabic verb Aslama, which means to accept, surrender or submit.
Muslims are those people that have agreed to submit to Allah. They also want the rest of the world to join them (violence quite ok):
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Does the Quran promote violence or peace?

The short answer - the Quran appears to promotes both, but really promotes violence. When listening to Muslims, you will often hear them only quote the peaceful passages. However, they are practicing Taqqiyah - misleading with dishonesty for the greater purpose of promoting Islam. Unfortunately, the peaceful passages are abrogated by the later more violent passages. Let me quote from
The principle of abrogation -- al-naskh wa al-mansukh (the abrogating and the abrogated) -- directs that verses revealed later in Muhammad's career "abrogate" -- i.e., cancel and replace -- earlier ones whose instructions they may contradict. Thus, passages revealed later in Muhammad's career, in Medina, overrule passages revealed earlier, in Mecca. The Quran itself lays out the principle of abrogation:
2:106. Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We {Allah} abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is able to do all things?
Now let's put everything together by first giving an extremely brief history of Muhammad and Islam:

Mohammad started Islam in Mecca while under the protection of his wealthy, much older wife, Khadija and his uncle Abu Talib. Muhammad was inspired by the monotheistic Jews and Christians, whom he met during trade and travel. Although protected, Muhammad and his followers were in a relatively weak position while in Mecca. Thus, the Meccan verses of the Quran show humility and are relatively peaceful (e.g., 2:256: "there is no compulsion in religion").

In 619, both Khadija and his powerful uncle died, leaving the Meccan Muslims without protection. Muhammad moved to Medina a few years later with just a few hundred followers, and found a more receptive audience. After gaining more converts (and marrying a child named Aisha), Muhammad realized the power of a politically-driven religion. He decided to grow at a more rapid pace by raiding Meccan caravans, and sharing the spoils with his followers (e.g., Chapter 8 of the Quran is titled "Spoils of War; Booty," detailing how to divide the wealth). His vengeance against the Meccans that had persecuted him and his followers did not cease until he defeated and converted them, murdering his remaining, unconverted enemies. He also reversed his view of fellow monotheists, Jews and Christians, because of their disbelief and aloofness to his new religion. New, vicious verses in the Quran were "revealed" to justify the destruction, murder and enslavement of entire Jewish communities (the male Jews of Banu Qurayza were massacred while the females and children were banished or became slaves). In this Medina period, Muhammad's "revelations" take a turn to the violent.

Here is a summary of key Mecca verses and the Medina verses that abrogate them (see for the original source here and be sure to check the next post on Islam's cult of Allah):

When Muhammad was at Mecca

After Muhammad went to Medina

Be careful of what you utter in the presence of the unbelievers; be patient with them.

73:10 And bear with patience what they utter, and part from them with a fair leave-taking. [3, Mecca ]

Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them

2:191 And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. [87, Medina ]

Do not use coercion with the infidels.

50:45 We are Best Aware of what they say, and thou (O Muhammad) art in no wise a compeller over them. But warn by the Qur'an him who feareth My threat. [34, Mecca ]

Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood.

9:123 Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah it will be repaid to you in full, and ye will not be wronged. [113, Medina ]

Be patient with the unbelievers; Allah will judge them.

10:109 And (O Muhammad) follow that which is inspired in thee, and forbear until Allah give judgment. And He is the Best of Judges. [51, Mecca ]

When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.

9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [113, Medina ]

Argue gently with the Jews, the Christians and the infidels.

16:125 Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright. [70, Mecca ]

Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax.

9:29 Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low. [113, Medina ]

One is free to practice whatever religion one belongs to.

109:6 Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion. [18, Mecca ]

Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.

3:85 And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter. [89, Medina ]

Muslims should learn from the Books of the Jews and the Christians.

10:94 And if thou (Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scripture (that was) before thee. Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee. So be not thou of the waverers. [51, Mecca ]

The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.

9:30 And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they! [113, Medina ]

Do not force the infidels into Islam.

10:99: And if thy Lord willed, all who are in the earth would have believed together. Wouldst thou (Muhammad) compel men until they are believers? [51, Mecca ]

Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam.

5:33 The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; [112, Medina ]

Show kindness and tolerance towards the infidels.

7:199 Keep to forgiveness (O Muhammad), and enjoin kindness, and turn away from the ignorant. [39, Mecca ]

The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.

9:28 O ye who believe! The idolaters only are unclean. So let them not come near the Inviolable Place of Worship after this their year. If ye fear poverty (from the loss of their merchandise) Allah shall preserve you of His bounty if He will. Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise. [113, Medina ]

Show forgiveness towards the unbelievers.

15:85 We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them save with truth, and lo! the Hour is surely coming. So forgive, (O Muhammad), with a gracious forgiveness. [54, Mecca ]

Be harsh with the unbelievers.

9:73 O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites! Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey's end. [113, Medina ]

Do not insult the infidels lest they insult Allah.

6:108 Revile not those unto whom they pray beside Allah lest they wrongfully revile Allah through ignorance. Thus unto every nation have We made their deed seem fair. Then unto their Lord is their return, and He will tell them what they used to do. [55, Mecca ]

Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.

22:19 These twain (the believers and the disbelievers) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads [103, Medina ]
22:20 Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; [103, Medina ]
22:21 And for them are hooked rods of iron. [103, Medina ]
22:22 Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning. [103, Medina ]

Do not dispute with the Jews and the Christians.

29:46 And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One, and unto Him we surrender. [85, Mecca ]

The Jews and the Christians are in perpetual hostility to the Muslims

2:137 And if they believe in the like of that which ye believe, then are they rightly guided. But if they turn away, then are they in schism, and Allah will suffice thee (for defence) against them. He is the Hearer, the Knower. [103, Medina ]

Deal kindly with those unbelievers who do not torment the Muslims.

60:8 Allah forbiddeth you not those who warred not against you on account of religion and drove you not out from your homes, that ye should show them kindness and deal justly with them. Lo! Allah loveth the just dealers. [91, Medina ]

Fight the unbelievers vigorously without any exception.

25:52 So obey not the disbelievers, but strive against them herewith with a great endeavour. [42, Mecca ]

Be courteous when you speak with the infidels.

17:53 Tell My bondmen to speak that which is kindlier. Lo! the devil soweth discord among them. Lo! the devil is for man an open foe. [50, Mecca ]

Be stern with the infidels.

66:9 O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end. [107, Medina ]

Tolerate the unbelievers and be at peace with them.

43:89 Then bear with them (O Muhammad) and say: Peace. But they will come to know. [63, Mecca ]

Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.

47:4 Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain. [95, Medina ]

Do not force the unbelievers to accept Islam—just warn them.

50:45 We are Best Aware of what they say, and thou (O Muhammad) art in no wise a compeller over them. But warn by the Qur'an him who feareth My threat. [34, Mecca ]

The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them

8:65 O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred (steadfast) they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence. [88, Medina ]

Be friendly with the infidels to remove evil from their hearts.

41:34 The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better, then lo! he, between whom and thee there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend. [62, Mecca ]

Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.

3:28 Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security. Allah biddeth you beware (only) of Himself. Unto Allah is the journeying. [89, Medina ]

The unbeliever’s scriptures are similar to the Qur’an.

46:10 Bethink you: If it is from Allah and ye disbelieve therein, and a witness of the Children of Israel hath already testified to the like thereof and hath believed, and ye are too proud (what plight is yours)? Lo! Allah guideth not wrong-doing folk. [66, Mecca ]

Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.

8:12 When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger. [88, Medina ]

Muslims should forgive the infidels for their unbelief.

45:14 Tell those who believe to forgive those who hope not for the days of Allah; in order that He may requite folk what they used to earn. [65, Mecca ]

Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels.

8:60 Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah it will be repaid to you in full, and ye will not be wronged. [88, Medina ]

is wikipedia really a reliable source to be getting your definitions from? wikipedia is published and written by anyone who would like to. give us a definition from a well respected and acclaimed linguistic source to make such an argument.

the lies you claim muslims are saying is that any different fro what you are doing by not including full verses taken from the qoran - the examples you give are cut off at points of highest climax that portrays best your point but not what the words of the verse or sorat are actually trying to portary...
i also find it very ineresting that there are rarely any comments for your blogs but that they must be 'approved' before. where is the truth in that?

Silly Allah said...

There are a lot of comments, please take a look. Maybe you'll learn something as well? I screen blog posts for spamming advertisers not users. You are free to make a fool of yourself...It appears that you wanted to discredit my blog but were frustrated that you couldn't. Instead you had to lie about incomplete verses and, rather than offer a counter-definition, you attempt to discredit Wikipedia on a simple definition. A little taqqiyah perhaps?

So tell me which verse is incomplete?

If you don't like Wikipedia, how about (
Let's see, they say:

[Arabic ’islām, submission, from ’aslama, to surrender, resign oneself, from Syriac ’ašlem, to make peace, surrender, derived stem of šlem, to be complete.]

Again: submission

And Answers quotes Britannica, Asian Mythology, Columbia, and the Islamic Dictionary for definitions...All say submit or surrender.

There is even a pro-Islam website call that I mentioned in the original blog post - did you check that?

As I asked in the other linked post...if you're lying in order to defend Islam logically, does that mean that Islam is illogical on its own?

Joseph said...

Dear Silly Allah, all pages with violence and hatred from Quran that muslims pritching in civilized countries should be exempt. Thanks.

Devil Boy said...

I think that you have only read the Quran but not understand it, Because every verse of Quran was revealed upon its events. So you should not only read the Quran but also understand it, & then make these type of websites

Silly Allah said...

I have read the Quran, quite a bit of the Hadith, Islam scholars, and history books. Can you tell us all where there is a mistake? Or do you simply want to believe in your Allah...

According to the majority of people including everyday Muslims
Islam is a religion of peace ,that has God (Allah) at its center of worship.
Like most other religions it has different sects and divisions.
However there is a lot more to it than just that ! , in fact there are certain aspects
and certain groups within Islam ,which seem to be separate from the mainstream ,
but are in-fact controlling the rest(Sufi groups).
The only people who know this are initiated members of this elite group,
I was once such a member of this group and what I have to tell will hopefully give a clearer
picture of the reality of Islam.
The one problem I envisage is that very few people will find what I say to be believable as
people tend not to have had their spiritual eyes opened or only believe in what they can touch and feel.
The truth of the matter is that Islam is not only a false religion but it is also a dangerous one.
People who are in Islam believe that they are serving God ,for no sane man would serve Lucifer
The majority are also ignorant.

Bastards are those who believe in this Religion. The immediate task is to erase Pakistan from the face of the earth. Then take over the other nations those who believe in Islam,one by one.

Silly Allah said...

While I'm no fan of Islam, I am careful not to blame all the believers and I do not ask for genocide. So I disagree with erasing Pakistan from the Earth.

black swan said...

ally I find a little bit of sense on the world!...

I was researching about the muslim origens and coran, sparkled with the contradictions of a peacefull message spread today on the media and the wary expansion that lead islam accross the world; I could find nothing on the website... until I saw this blog...

Well done! the truth shall make you free!!!
