Religion of Peace that orders to kill Non Muslims

In 2001 president Bush quoted at Islamic Center of Washington, D.C. that “Islam is Peace”.  General people who doesn’t have that much knowledge of Islam feels in similar manner. Various Muslim scholars also quote the same and say that Islam literally means “peace or submission” .Muslims who are keen to emphasize their rejection of violence have used the term “a religion of peace” as a description of Islam they says that “The Prophet  did not found a terrorist religion, but a religion of peace.” .but when we look at the history and the current affairs of various Muslim organizations like ISIS, BOKO Haram and Indian Muzahiddin etc, situation is totally different. On looking the activities of these organization and the similar emperors and organization in past it seems that it’s a different world which is shown to general public.

There is an uncanny irony here that many have noticed. The position of these Muslim organizations like ISIS in the face of all provocations seems to be: “Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we will kill you. “

Of course, the truth is often more nuanced, but this is about as nuanced as it ever gets: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we peaceful Muslims cannot be held responsible for what our less peaceful brothers and sisters do. When they burn your embassies or kidnap and slaughter your journalists, know that we will hold you primarily responsible and will spend the bulk of our energies criticizing you for “racism” and “Islamophobia.”

The problem, however, is that the credo of these Muslim organizations like Taliban ISIS actually happens to be “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

It is strange that ISIS wants to establish Islamic state. They says that they are on path of Allah. Looking into their views. Its stranger that Allah, the Islamic God, wants to make people Muslims through a cruel scheme of terror. Being the Creator, he could have achieved this goal by creating everybody a Muslim.

It is amazing to maintain appearance, Islam does not include Jihad in its Five Basic Canons, that is the confession (Kalma), Namaz, Roza, Zukat and Hajj. The reason for this exclusion is to create ambiguity to baffle the followers so that freedom is given to carry out acts of barbarity as holy deeds without inquiring into the nature of religion

Jihad is the surest way of securing paradise. Look at the following Qur’anic Evidence to lure Muslims for Jihad.


Look at the hatred verses in Quran against the non-Muslims:

is3is3is3is3Sura Repentance 9:5

 “But when the sacred months expire slay those who associate others with Allah in His Divinity wherever you find them, and besiege them and lie in wait for them. But if they repent and establish the prayer and pay Zakah leave them alone. Surely Allah is all – forgiving ever merciful. And if any of those who associate others with Allah in His Divinity seeks asylum, grant him asylum that he may hear the Word of Allah and then escort him to safety for they are a people who do not know.”

AllamaShabbir Ahmad Usmani describes that it is told that though no covenant stood between the Muslims and the covenant breakers and the Muslims were justified to take any prompt actions against them befitting their crime, yet the reverence of the Holy Months demanded some toleration either because first action might have been forbidden in the holy months up to that time or because of some expedient reason that why confusion should be created among the people for a minor things since warring during these months was conventionally infamous among them. However they were given respite till the end of these month to manage their affairs as they liked.

He further explains that After that for the purification of Arabian Peninsula (an area of land that is almost surrounded by water but is joined to a larger piece of land:
the Iberian peninsula (= Spain and Portugal)) there would be no way out save war. And what is done in war – Killing, arresting, besieging, confining, lying in wait for ambush shall be done necessarily.

Look at the further explanations how clear they are in way of forcing the people to convert to Islam. :


According to Imam Ahmad, Imam Shafaee, Imam Malik repent it is obligation of an Islamic State to slay the offender of Salat if he does not repent and begin to pray. Imam Abu Haneefa(Be God’s mercy on him) says that he should be beaten harshly and sentenced to confinement till he dies or repents.


How poor that GOD is who is dependent on these terrorists to spread his views.

If he would have been that much of powerful why he didn’t created all the people as Muslims.

Why he is so helpless aginst the Shiatan who is creating obstacle in making the whole world an Islamic State.

Jihad: A contract between Allah and Muslims

Everyone is aware about the word “Jihad” i.e. also known as holy war. Muslim scholars defines it as “in a religious sense, as described by the Quran and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (s), “jihad” has many meanings. It can refer to internal as well as external efforts to be a good Muslims or believer, as well as working to inform people about the faith of Islam.”

Muslim scholars describes that:

  • Jihad is not a violent concept.
  • Jihad is not a declaration of war against other religions. It is worth noting that the Koran specifically refers to Jews and Christians as “people of the book” who should be protected and respected. All three faiths worship the same God. Allah is just the Arabic word for God, and is used by Christian Arabs as well as Muslims.
  • Military action in the name of Islam has not been common in the history of Islam. Scholars says most calls for violent jihad are not sanctioned by Islam.
  • Warfare in the name of God is not unique to Islam. Other faiths throughout the world have waged wars with religious justifications

After studying the above one remains in no doubt the nature of Islamic Jihad. It will convince a lot of people those are not that much familiar with the Quran and Hadiths as well as the history?

Let’s examine what Quran said about the Jihad.

“Surely Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their belongings and in return has promised that they shall have paradise. They fight in the way of Allah and slay and are slain. Such is the promise He has made incumbent upon Himself in the Torah, and the Gospel and the Quran. Who is more faithful to this promise than Allah? Rejoice, then in the bargain you have made with him”
Al – Tawbah 9:110

Defining the contract between Allah and the Muslims Mr. ZagarIshaq Ansari writes that “when a man has true faith it involves a commitment to devote himself sincerely to God and thus attain His reward in return for that commitment. This two way commitment has been described as “Transaction”. What this means is that faith is in fact a contract according to which man places all that he has – his life, his wealth – at the disposal of God; he “sells” them to God. In Return he accepts God’s promise of paradise in the next life.

It is clear that Islam is a contract between God and Muslim. God guarantees paradise to the believer provided that he is willing to kill or get killed for God’s sake. It shows how desperate Allah is for an acknowledgement from the unbelievers.

Dr. Anwar Shaikh elaborate it that Allah:

–          Has no respect for human life and dignity, whatsoever; al He is concerned with is His Self and the most urgent need for praise, pacification and prostration. Yet He declares in the Quran that he is Samad i.e. He is totally independent and has no needs or desires.

–          Murder is the most heinous crime but Allah thinks of it as a Holy Play (Jihad). It expresses His regard for morality!

–          Most importantly, it is a contract between Allah and Muslims. Again, Allah declares that so beneficial this contract is to believers that It ranks as a bargain. In other words, it is quite legitimate to commit a crime like murder if it benefits the perpetrator!

–          To persuade believers for commission of heinous misdeeds, Allah assures them that he is the best keepers of promise.


He further adds that it is evident that Jihad means challenging non- Muslims to a duel, which legalizes all the horrors of war and immorality.


Another famous scholar of Quran AllamaShabbir Ahmad Usmani writes in “Tafseer – E- Usmani that “what a better trade and mightier success might be than that God became the buyer of our ordinary persons and transient wealth? He further describes that how much merciful Allah is that “the wealth selves of ours, as a matter of fact, are His creations and a little relation with them has made them our wealth and our person. Despite this fact, God has fixed the price of ourselves and wealth and that is paradise, the highest place of virtue and honor and the means to reach the purchase himself. It is the kindness of God and a great honor given to man”


            How a man is lured to indulge in Jihad?  AllamaShabbir Ahmad Usmani has quoted that The Holy Prophet has said, “There will be such bounties in the paradise that no eye, ear or heart have ever perceived them.” So it is the most excellent reward of GOD.

He said that He only demands their sacrifice when needed.  This is why it is said that they kill and are killed in His way – they present their wealth and their persons in His way, then they kill are or are killed. In both cases the bargain is done and the price paid became their fortune.

Then what a better occasion for the believers would be to rejoice and feel proud in their fortune than that God, the most honored and glorious himself becomes the purchaser and with such a glorious style.

Abdullah bin Rawaha has rightly said that this is such a glorious bargain where after there is no question of loss whatsoever. May God admit us into the party of such believers?

Hence credo of Muslims organization like Taliban ISIS actually lies with the lines of their scholars that  “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

How they can be said wrong when they are following what is being taught to them. They are bound to do that as they are believers and are bound with the agreement they has entered with Allah.

Terrorism has a Religion, and that is Islam

Politically correct leaders, paid media, and pseudo-secular activists want us to believe that terrorism has no religion. They stress that no religion teaches terrorism, and it should not be linked with any faith. Grand Mufti of Egypt, Ali-Gomaa once wrote in his article:jihad-1024x522

“Terrorism cannot be born of religion. Terrorism is the product of corrupt minds, hardened hearts, and arrogant egos, and corruption, destruction, and arrogance are unknown to the heart attached to the divine.  Islam is a religion of tolerance and peaceful coexistence with all of humanity both as individuals and communities. Islam views people as honored creatures without regard for their religion, race, or color. “ 

If you ask any Islamic cleric or the politically correct leader about linking Islam with terrorism, their most probable answer would be, that terror has no religion or color. India’s External Affairs Minister, Mr. Salman Khurshid when asked the same question few months back, he answered:

“Terror does not have religion. We have said this very clearly. And religion should not be associated with color.  This we have said very clearly. It is terror that we have to fight. Terror directed against India that we are fighting.”

Ask this question to any of the above mentioned people, the answer would be absolute same. But the question is, are they factually correct? Does Terrorism really has no connection with any particular religion? Has terrorism no color? In this article I will try to answer these questions using evidences, and teachings from canonical scripture of Islam and by the facts provided by the terrorists (Jihadis) themselves.

There are loads of evidences which proves Islam is the religion of Terrorism, but it cannot be compiled in a single article. So I’ll try to provide some evidences which proves my point.  The Islamic clerics themselves admit that it is OK to kill the Non-Muslims (Kafirs) as per the teaching of Islam. In 2002 [WND], A London-based Muslim cleric has been caught on film urging his followers to kill non-Muslims – particularly Americans – and to commit other acts of terrorism.

Sheik Abu Hamza, affiliated with London’s Finsbury Park mosque, tells an audience that non-believers should be killed or sold into slavery in a tape converted to digital files and smuggled onto the Internet.

The tapes were reportedly given by Hamza to a researcher who posed as a supporter and infiltrated his inner circle. “If a kafir person (non-believer) goes in a Muslim country, he is like a cow,” explains Hamza. “Anybody can take him. That is the Islamic law.”

Another example is of Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving gunman from 2008 Mumbai attacks admitted that hisAKAS (Islamic Leaders or Preachers) told him that killing ‘Hindu kafirs’ and getting killed while doing so is the most pious way to get to heaven, where a thousand million virgins will be waiting to serve them and take them even higher.

If these two example are not sufficient enough to prove that Islam is the religion of Terrorism, so let’s see what happened in West Gate Mall in Kenya.

According to an Eyewitness News who spoke to the Economist magazine’s Daniel Howden who is in Nairobi.

He said after the initial burst of firing was over, several witnesses said the attackers were calling on Muslims who were inside the mall to identify themselves so they could be allowed to leave.

The above report proves that the terrorists identified Muslims as their own, so they allowed them to leave the mall to kill all the other Non-Muslim inside the mall. As per another report:

“In one instance, it was described to me that an Indian man pretended he was a Muslim and was asked to provide the name of the mother of the Prophet Muhammad. When he couldn’t provide it, he was shot dead in front of everyone.”

It again proves that the terrorists wanted to know the religion of people who tried to escape, and they asked them questions, which are mostly known to Muslims. The Indian man was killed because, he didn’t knew the name of mother of Muhammad, whom terrorists adore as their Prophet, and his religion as their religion.

The evidence against Islam, becomes much stronger by the recent suicide bombing by Muslims in a Church in Pakistan, which was only attended by Christians. The sole intention of suicide bomber was to kill as many Non-Muslim he can.

These terrorist attacks are not alone evidence, there are dozens of verses too, which exhorts Muslims to become terrorists. Although I have discussed it many a times, still I’ll quote few verses which clearly commands Muslims to kill and fight those who accept not Allah as their Lord and Muhammad as his Prophet.

Quran 8:39 says, “And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”

The verse is self-explanatory, the author wants Muslims to fight the Non-Muslims until the religion is solely for Allah, i.e. Islam alone. Many Islamic scholars complain us of quoting the verses out of context, but unfortunately the verse itself says to fight the all the disbeliever until religion is only for Allah, which leaves no room for contextual interpretation.

Quran 9:14 says, “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.”

It is amazing to read that it is Allah himself who is using the hands of these terrorists to punish innocent non-believers, still people say that religion should not be linked with terrorism.

Now I believe after going through these evidences, any rational mind, without a shadow of doubt will agree with me, that Islam is the religion of terrorism. Terrorists are born out of preaching of Quran, and yes terrorist have a religion a color, which is Islam.

Reply to Dr Naik’s :Does Islam Promote Violence?

Does Islam Promote Violence?

We often hear Muslim Clerics and Scholars explaining the meaning of word ‘Islam’ as peace. Most of the time we are accused of misquoting verses of Quran and misunderstanding them, we are even asked by our politically correct leader to never use the word terrorism with Islam.  But is it true that Islam doesn’t promote violence? Or it does? When I asked this simple question from my Muslim friends, they handed me a video lecture of famous Indian televangelist Dr. Zakir Naik, who explains in his video why Islam does not promote violence. Even after going through his video I am not satisfied, I am writing this article as an objection to his claims. Following are the transcripts of his lecture in red, with my reply.

Dr. Naik Said:- A few selected verses from the Qur’an are often misquoted to perpetuate the myth that Islam promotes violence, and exhorts its followers to kill those outside the pale of Islam.

My Reply:- Few years back I read a book entitled “164 Jihad verses in Quran” compiled by Yoel Natan, he enlisted only those verses from Quran which talks about killing, murder, jihad, raid, loot, expedition, fighting etc. Apart from Quran there are many Sahih Hadiths, which are canonical scripture of Islam, and in Hadith you will find commands of violence and fighting in good amount. So I guess Dr. Naik made a mistake by selecting the word ‘few’ for those verses from Quran which critics consider to promote violence.

Let’s leave the Quranic verses aside for time being, but how can we ignore what Muslims are doing today in world in name of Allah. I believe action speaks more than words, and they (Muslims) have proved it that something is wrong with Islamic teaching. They don’t even tolerate Muslims from other sect, then how come we expect them to show mercy of Non-Muslims?

About the allegation of misquotation I would say, that it’s hardly our mistake if we have misquoted any Quranic verse, as seldom you will find Quranic verses with context. Actually Quran only in some places gives its context of verses, still we are more sincere than Muslims in taking the Quranic verse in context, why I said so we will see it later in this article.

Dr. Naik Said:- . Verse from Surah Taubah 

The following verse from Surah Taubah is very often quoted by critics of Islam, to show that Islam promotes violence, bloodshed and brutality:

“Kill the mushriqeen (pagans, polytheists, kuffar) where ever you find them.” [Al-Qur’an 9:5]

My Reply:- Yes, true the Quranic verse 9:5 and 9:29 are very often quoted, the complete verse reads:-

[9.5] So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Who will not say that Islam promotes violence, bloodshed, and brutality, after reading the above verse? The commands are crystal clear, and in above verse the author of Quran commands Muslims to kill Non-Muslims after the sacred months of Islam is passed. It further adds that if they (Non-Muslims) embrace Islam, then let them go free. Doesn’t it sound kind of dictatorship by an almighty? Well I still have to take this verse in context, or else Muslims will accuse me of misquoting the verse, but before let’s see what more Dr. Naik says.

Dr. Naik said:- . Context of verse is during battlefield 

Critics of Islam actually quote this verse out of context. In order to understand the context, we need to read from verse 1 of this surah. It says that there was a peace treaty between the Muslims and the Mushriks (pagans) of Makkah. This treaty was violated by the Mushriks of Makkah. A period of four months was given to the Mushriks of Makkah to make amends. Otherwise war would be declared against them. Verse 5 of Surah Taubah says:

“But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Al-Qur’an 9:5]

This verse is quoted during a battle.

My Reply:- Above Dr. Naik easily claims that the context of verse is during battlefield, but we don’t see any evidence for his claim. Whereas most of the early scholars have different view about the very same verse.

Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi wrote: – A clear declaration was made that all the treaties with the mushriks were abolished and the Muslims would be released from the treaty obligations with them after a respite of four months.(vv. 1-3). This declaration was necessary for uprooting completely the system of life based on shirk and to make Arabia exclusively the center of Islam so that it should not in any way interfere with the spirit of Islam nor become an internal danger for it.

In his explanation of the verse 9:5 Ibn Kathir says:- (So when the Sacred Months have passed…), meaning, `Upon the end of the four months during which We prohibited you from fighting the idolaters  and which is the grace period We gave them, then fight and kill the idolaters wherever you may find them.’ Allah’s statement next, (then fight the Mushrikin wherever you find them), means, on the earth in general, except for the Sacred Area,(and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush), do not wait until you find them. Rather, seek and besiege them in their areas and forts, gather intelligence about them in the various roads and fairways so that what is made wide looks ever smaller to them. This way, they will have no choice, but to die or embrace Islam.

These above explanations make the verse very clear, as it also proves that Dr. Naik is lying about the verse. This verse was revealed to prepare Muslims for Jihad against Non-Muslims, and to force all Arabs to embrace Islam.

Dr. Naik is certainly making an error by claiming that the peace treaty was violated by Non-Muslims, but in reality it is Muhammad himself who broke the treaty with Non-Muslims, it is clear from the very first verse of Quran Ch 9, which says:-

[This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists.

Here we see Allah and his messenger are declaring the disassociation of the treaty with the polytheists, and it is not the other way round. The reason for this disassociation is correctly mentioned by Maududdi, as he says:-

This declaration was necessary for uprooting completely the system of life based on shirk and to make Arabia exclusively the center of Islam so that it should not in any way interfere with the spirit of Islam nor become an internal danger for it.

Allah commands Muslims to complete the term of four months with them who are not deficient towards Muslims in any way. This he mentioned in Quran Ch 9 Verse 4:-

Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].

And the very next verse commands Muslims to kill even those who were not deficient towards Muslims and supported no enemy of Muslims, so this alone clearly proves that Islam does promote violence, and the explanation given by Dr. Naik is full of errors and far from historical evidences.

Dr. Naik:- Example of war between America and Vietnam

We know that America was once at war with Vietnam. Suppose the President of America or the General of the American Army told the American soldiers during the war: “Wherever you find the Vietnamese, kill them”. Today if I say that the American President said, “Wherever you find the Vietnamese, kill them” without giving the context, I will make him sound like a butcher. But if I quote him in context, that he said it during a war, it will sound very logical, as he was trying to boost the morale of the American soldiers during the war.

My Reply:- Well Dr. Naik loves to brain wash his followers by giving irrelevant examples, and he cunningly quotes those example which may make Islam look a peaceful religion. The example which he quoted above is in no relation with the verse which we are discussing. As I demonstrated above that the verse was not revealed in relation of war like that of America and Vietnam, so his example is useless here.  He should have better given example of Pakistan and India. We all know Pakistan is a heaven of Islamic terrorism, so what if the president of Pakistan tells Islamic terrorists “Kill all the Indians wherever you find and lie in wait of them.” This example would be more relevant than his example.

Dr Naik Said:- Verse 9:5 quoted to boost morale of Muslims during battle

Similarly in Surah Taubah chapter 9 verse 5 the Qur’an says, “Kill the Mushriks wherever you find them”, during a battle to boost the morale of the Muslim soldiers. What the Qur’an is telling Muslim soldiers is, don’t be afraid during battle; wherever you find the enemies kill them.

My Reply:- Yes, verse 9:5 was revealed to boost the morale of Muslims, but not during battlefield. Muslims were commanded to kill all the Non-Muslims of Arabia and fight with them until they die or embrace Islam, so were Muslims in state of war with all Non-Muslim? I believe no. I as said earlier this verse was revealed to make the whole of Arabia a perfect Dar-ul-Islam.

Dr Naik said: – . Shourie jumps from verse 5 to verse 7 

Arun Shourie is one of the staunchest critics of Islam in India. He quotes the same verse, Surah Taubah chapter 9 verse 5 in his book ‘The World of Fatawas’, on page 572. After quoting verse 5 he jumps to verse 7 of Surah Taubah. Any sensible person will realize that he has skipped verse 6.

My Reply:- Its good that he jumped from verse 5 to 7, or else it would have made the meaning of the verse 5 more worst, and cruel. OK  as you suggest that we should include verse 9:6 too, then sure, I’ll do it for you. Quran 9:6 says:-

And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.

To understand this verse we may rely on what most prominent Islamic scholars think about this verse, I believe it will not make the previous verse peaceful, but certainly it will make it look more violent. Ibn Kathir in his commentary says:-

These Ayat allowed fighting people unless, and until, they embrace Islam and implement its rulings and obligations. Allah mentioned the most important aspects of Islam here, including what is less important. Surely, the highest elements of Islam after the Two Testimonials, are the prayer, which is the right of Allah, the Exalted and Ever High, then the Zakah, which benefits the poor and needy. These are the most honorable acts that creatures perform, and this is why Allah often mentions the prayer and Zakah together. In the Two Sahihs, it is recorded that Ibn `Umar said that the Messenger of Allah said, These Ayat allowed fighting people unless, and until, they embrace Islam and implement its rulings and obligations.

He adds:- (And if anyone of the Mushrikin), whom you were commanded to fight and We allowed you their blood and property,’(seeks your protection), asked you for safe passage, then accept his request until he hears the Words of Allah, the Qur’an. Recite the Qur’an to him and mention a good part of the religion with which you establish Allah’s proof against him, The Ayah says, `We legislated giving such people safe passage so that they may learn about the religion of Allah, so that Allah’s call will spread among His servants. Ibn Abi Najih narrated that Mujahid said that this Ayah, “Refers to someone who comes to you to hear what you say and what was revealed to you (O Muhammad).Therefore, he is safe until he comes to you, hears Allah’s Words and then proceeds to the safe area where he came from.” 

After reading the above explanation, in short we can say that Muslims in 9:5 are allowed to kill all Non-Muslims until they make Arabia a perfect Dar-ul-Islam. Muslims are allowed to fight until none has right to worship Allah alone. In between if any Non-Muslim seeks protection, i.e. if he agrees to embrace Islam, and do all that what Muslims do, is safe.

Now how this addition of verse 9:6 makes its previous verse peaceful? Still the outline is same, to kill Non-Muslims and keep fighting until they either die or embrace Islam. So in Dr. Naik’s words, any sensible person will realize that Islam does not promote violence.

Rest he talks about Quran 9:6, which I have already explained in above part. So by no means Islam can be said a religion of peace, and even the top scholars of Islam makes a number of mistakes and errors while trying to prove Islam to be religion of peace. Islam was, is and ever be the most intolerant religion, which always promotes violence.

What is jihad? Reply to Sheikh Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt

Muslims Scholars spend Billions of $ in Dawah to convert people into Islam. After getting fooled(converted) into Islam, still the new converts have many misconceptions about Islam. Following is a Question asked by a New Convert to Islam to the Grand Mufti of Egypt. The Grand Mufti replies him, but as usual his replies is full of lies. Below I’ll try to correct him based on authentic teachings of Islam. His wrong answers will be  STRIKETHROUGH  with my comments in bold red below.


I am a new convert to Islam and I have read in Islamic sources that Jihad is obligatory till judgment day. At the same time I understand that there is no compulsion in religion then what is the meaning of Jihad? Also should Muslims wage wars against non Muslims every where and slaughter them? How do we balance between the concept of no compulsion in religion and between the following verse “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful. (9:5) And the prophetic hadith which says “I was commanded to fight people until they attest that there is no god but God…” Please clarify.


The original state which guides the relationship between Muslims and non Muslims is coexistence and peace not war.God says in the Quran, “God does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, God loves those who act justly”. 60:8

COMMENTS:- The original state of relation between Muslims and Non-Muslims can never be peaceful, as the Holy Quran itself says, “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.” [Quran 9:5] As this verse is used in this reply, so we will talk about it later. Grand Mufti cleverly uses Quran 60:8 to prove that Islam is a religion of peace and Quran commands Muslims to be righteous and peaceful towards Non-Muslims if they are not hostile. But this is not completely true. If we read verse 60:8 with is context then we will find that this verse is talking about a specific family. As Ibn Kathir in explanation of this verse writes:-

 Imam Ahmad recorded that Asma’ bint Abu Bakr said, “My mother, who was an idolatress at the time, came to me during the Treaty of Peace, the Prophet conducted with the Quraysh. I came to the Prophet and said, `O Allah’s Messenger! My mother came visiting, desiring something from me, should I treat her with good relations’ The Prophet said,(Yes. Keep good relation with your mother.)” The Two Sahihs recorded this Hadith. Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin Zubayr said, “Qutaylah came visiting her daughter, Asma’ bint Abi Bakr, with some gifts, such as Dibab, cheese and clarified (cooking) butter, and she was an idolatress at that time. Asma’ refused to accept her mother’s gifts and did not let her enter her house. `A’ishah asked the Prophet about his verdict and Allah sent down the Ayah

So as per evidence the above verse was revealed in context of Abu Bakr’s daughter and cannot be taken in general, so here Allah is not commanding to be in peace with Non-Muslims who are not fighting Muslims. Even if Allah does commands Muslims to live peacefully with Non-Combating idolaters in 60:8, then there is a contradiction in Quran, as 9:29 commands Muslims to fight all those who does not believe in Allah and his Messenger.

God also says “And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon God. Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.” (8:61)

Therefore the legal evidence from both the Quran and the Sunnah along with the Muslims’ actions along centuries indicate that they opened people’s minds and hearts before entering their lands and this understanding does not defy the concept of Jihad and its role in fighting oppression and elevating injusticeIn other words, it is a mutual fighting and not one sided killing which means that non Muslims are not fought because of the mere fact that they are non Muslims. For this reason Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prohibited desecrating place of worship of non Muslims or subjecting them to any kind of harm and even the non Muslim militant combatants who fight against Muslims in a war, if they back off from oppression and tyranny then Muslims have no right to continue fighting them. God says, “Fight in the way of God those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. God does not like transgressors.” (2:190)

COMMENTS:- Here the entire paragraph is deceitfully written to put a veil on the verses from Quran and narrations from Hadith which exhorts Muslims to become terrorist, inhumane and barbaric. At the very first place the verse used by the respectable Mufti, in view of many early scholars is abrogated. Ibn Jalalayan and Ibn Abbaas view the verse is abrogated by the verse of SWORD, i.e. 9:5. Ibn Jalalayan writes:-

And if they incline to peace (read silm or salm, meaning, ‘settlement’), then incline to it, and conclude a pact with them: Ibn ‘Abbās said, ‘This has been abrogated by the “sword verse” [Q. 9:5]’; Mujāhid said, ‘This [stipulation] applies exclusively in the context of the People of the Scripture, for it was revealed regarding the Banū Qurayza; and rely on God, put your trust in Him; truly He is the Hearer, of words, the Knower, of actions.

So again in this case the verse is expired and cannot be used today, as Muslims are commanded to believe and practice verse 9:5. Another blatant lie which the grand Mufti repeated above is that, “non Muslims are not fought because of the mere fact that they are non Muslims.” I guess our Grand Mufti has not understood Quran well, as it clearly commands Muslims to fight all those who do not believe in Allah, so fighting Non-Muslims because they are Non-Muslims is allowed in Islam, read the verse 9:29 which says:-

Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled. [Quran 9:29]

In authentic hadiths of Muhammad, it is clearly narrated that the Prophet fought and allowed to fight his troops until the innocent people testify that only Islam is the true religion. It clearly proves that Islam allows to fight and kill innocent people because they are Non-Muslim. Regarding the verse 2:190 again I would like to say that the verse is abrogated in view of early scholars of Islam and is not in use, for reference read the Tafsir of Ibn Jalalayan.

Therefore Jihad is a noble war to fight injustice and lift oppression and tyranny and not a shooting spree of individuals as some uninformed people try to promote. If this noble war shifted away from legal guidelines which include all the necessary conditions, restrictions and elements which if applied would qualify fighting as an eligible noble war- if these rules are not applied then jihad is deemed illegal and simply turns to corruption on earth or betrayal and treachery because not every war is jihad and not all killings in war is permissible. Waging wars against non Muslims every where is not part of Islam or its noble teachings as this understanding is a sheer aberration from the correct authentic way of understanding the concept of Jihad in Islam. As for the above mentioned verse which says, “and when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.” (9:5)

COMMENTS:- This is the height of  fabrication and dishonesty by such a revered scholar of Islam. His definition of Jihad is in contradiction with what Prophet of Islam taught. An Islamic site defines Jihad as:-

As regards jihad, it is to do one’s best to make the Word of Allah, The Most High, prevail, whether by hand, with money or with the tongue. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Fight against the polytheists with your money, hands and tongue.” (Reported by Al-Nasa’i, with anauthentic chain of narrations.)

Jihad with hand is fighting against the polytheists and the people of the book and others, to make the Word of Allah prevail.

Allah says: “ And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zâlimûn (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.) (Al-Baqarah 2:193)

Allah further says: “ 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).” (At-Tawbah 9:123)

Jihad with money is spending money in the path of Allah. Allah says: “March forth, whether you are light (being healthy, young and wealthy) or heavy (being ill, old and poor), strive hard with your wealth and your lives in the Cause of Allah. This is better for you, if you but knew.” (At-Tawbah 9:41) [SOURCE]

So it would be safe to say that Jihad is killing of Non-Muslims until they embrace Islam and accept Muhammad as the Prophet of God, or pay Jizyah willingly. Waging war against Non-Muslims everywhere possible, is the basic teaching of Islam. Every killing of innocent Non-Muslims in name of Allah and his messenger is Jihad, and this is only the real and true concept of Jihad.

This verse has to do with those who breached their covenant, fought, killed, betrayed Muslims and had calculative moves to annihilate them and thus God commands Muslims to defend themselves against polytheists and God described these polytheists in the later verses as “They do not observe toward a believer any pact of kinship or covenant of protection. And it is they who are the transgressors.” (9:10)

COMMENTS:- The verse 9:5 has nothing to do with anyone who breached the covenant with Muslims. In fact it is even hard to prove that Non-Muslims broke any such covenant. In view of Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi, Chapter 9 was revealed to convert the remaining Non-Muslims in Arabia into Islam. He writes:-

If we keep in view the preceding background, we can easily find out the problems that were confronting the Community at that time. They were:

  1. to make the whole of Arabia a perfect Dar-ul-Islam,
  2. to extend the influence of Islam to the adjoining countries,
  3. to crush the mischiefs of the hypocrites, and
  4. to prepare the Muslims for Jihad against the non- Muslim world.

Apart from the above evidence, we have the context problem. As per the context of verse 9:5, it is Allah and Muhammad who declared the disassociation of treaty with Polytheists of Arabia, as commanded in Quran 9:1:-

[This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists

So we don’t find the verse saying that the Polytheists broke the treaty, but it was Muhammad who declared that after the grace period of four months no Non-Believer will be safe. Allah even commanded Muslims to kill those non-Muslims who were not deficient towards Muslims.

Conclusion:- In conclusion we can say that the majority of today’s scholars, Muftis and Maulvis are fooling ignorant Non-Muslims to convert them into fold of Islam. They play with words and misinterpret their own Holy Book. If anyone ask me to define Jihad based on the canonical scripture of Islam, I would certainly agree with the actions of Muslims, as they have carried out more than 20,000 terrorist attack since 9/11. The Prophet of Islam himself said, “The highest level of Islam is jihad in the path of Allah.” (Reported by Ahmed and Abu Dawud.) So without a shadow of doubt we can say that Islam is the most Inhumane religion still existing on face of earth, and the followers of Islam are the most barbaric species found today on earth.

Islam was spread with sword

In today’s world this topic is highly debated, that whether “Islam was spread with peace or Sword”. Is Islam a religion of terrorism or peace? Many Islamic scholars today claim Islam to be religion of peace, and Islam was spread with peace. They also say, that Muhammad fought no offensive fight. They (Muslim Scholars) add that all the fight in Islam were defensive. There was no use of sword or violence to spread Islam.

To answer these questions, and to separate the wheat from chaff, we will have to look in the Historical background, when Qur’an was revealed to Muhammad. As per Qur’an itself, the Arabs did not believed Qur’an to be revealed book, and Muhammad to be Messenger of God. We have many evidences that even his own tribe rejected his message and called him a Jinn Possessed, or a fraud. [Quran 25:4-5]

Some people even claimed Qur’an to be “Tales of Ancient”, and some added that he was Jinn possessed. [Qur’an 83:13] On top of all this, some of the Meccans even demanded him to show some Miracles, so they would believe his claims. But, Muhammad even denied to show any Miracle to them, and said that he was unable to perform any Miracle. [ Qur’an 17:90-93]

We are also aware that in Meccan carrier of Muhammad which lasted approx 13 years he only had handful of followers, which could not exceed 100 in number, if we trust the biographies written by Muslim themselves, so we would like to know what happened in remaining years that whole Arabia came in fold of Islam?

As per the above scenario, Meccans had no reason to embrace Islam, as they had no proof of Muhammad’s message authenticity. Then, how come after Hijrah the number of followers increased and in such a way that later even Meccans accepted Islam, with rest of Arabia? The obvious answer for this question would be that, in lack of evidence and reason to support his message, Muhammad resorted to violence to spread Islam.  One of the Islamic site says this:-

Allaah has commanded us to prepare the means of fighting against the kuffaar and frightening them. He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to threaten the enemy of Allaah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allaah does know”

[al-Anfaal 8:60]

If Islam was only spread by peaceful means, what would the kuffaar have to be afraid of? Of mere words spoken on the tongue? In al-Saheehayn it is narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I have been supported with fear as far as a month’s journey.” Would the kuffaar be afraid of being told, “become Muslim, but if you do not then you are free to believe and do whatever you want”? or were they afraid of jihad and the imposition of the jizyah and being humiliated? That may make them enter Islam so that they may be spared this humiliation. [Source]

I would like today’s so called peaceful Muslims to answer that, what would kuffar have to be afraid of? Did they (Non-Believers) converted to Islam, just by pleasing of Peaceful Muslims? Were the Non-Believers convinced with message of Muhammad? But, as we have seen above that, Meccans and other Arabs doubted the Message of Muhammad, and even considered him Lunatic, so some other strength must have been used. That power was use of sword and violence. Let’s see what the same site writes further.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 28/263. 

The purpose is that all religion should be for Allaah alone, and that the word of Allaah should be supreme. The word of Allaah is a comprehensive phrase that refers to His words that are contained in His Book. Hence Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Indeed We have sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and the Balance (justice) that mankind may keep up justice”

[al-Hadeed 57:25]

The purpose behind sending the Messengers and revealing the Books was so that mankind might keep up justice with regard to the rights of Allaah and the rights of His creation. Then Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And We brought forth iron wherein is mighty power (in matters of war), as well as many benefits for mankind, that Allaah may test who it is that will help Him (His religion) and His Messengers in the unseen”

[al-Hadeed 27:25]

So whoever deviates from the Book is to be brought back with iron, i.e. by force. Hence the soundness of the religion is based on the Qur’aan and the Sword. It was narrated that Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded us to strike with this, meaning the sword, whoever turns away from this, meaning the Qur’aan.

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Faroosiyyah (p.18):

Allaah sent him – meaning the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) – with the guiding Book and the conquering sword, ahead of the Hour, so that Allaah alone would be worshipped with no partner or associate, and his provision was placed beneath the shade of his sword and spear. Allaah has established the religion of Islam with proof and evidence, and with the sword and spear, both together and inseparable.

This is some of the evidence from the Qur’aan and Sunnah. The evidence clearly indicates that the sword is one of the most important means that led to the spread of Islam. 

This is indeed very true, as we don’t find any other reason, because of which Non-Believers at the time Muhammad, would have excepted Islam. When they( Non-Believers), them self claimed Muhammad to be Charlatan, Fraud, Jinn possessed, and his Message to be “Fables of ancient”. The above mentioned reason is appropriate for the spread of Islam, even in early day. So, their is very little room to claim, Islam is a religion of peace, and it was spread with peace.

Lastly, see how shamelessly some people claim, that they are proud of violent history of Islam.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I have been sent ahead of the Hour with the sword so that Allaah will be worshipped alone, and my provision has been placed in the shade of my spear, and humiliation has been decreed for those who go against my command, and whoever imitates a people is one of them.”  Narrated by Ahmad, 4869; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 2831.

The fact that the sword and power were means of spreading Islam is not a sources of shame for Islam, rather it is one of its strengths and virtues, because that makes people adhere to that which will benefit them in this world and in the Hereafter. Many people are foolish and lacking in wisdom and knowledge, and if they are left to their own devices they will remain blinded to the truth, indulging in their whims and desires. So Allaah has prescribed jihad in order to bring them back to the truth and to that which will benefit them. Undoubtedly wisdom dictates that the fool should be prevented from doing that which will harm him, and should be forced to do that which will benefit him. [Source]

Well said, Why should Muslims be ashamed of mass murder, beheading, rape, sudden raid etc of Muhammad? After all he is the most Noble Human being whom Allah created till date , and Muslims have to follow and elevate him, next to Allah’s throne. This is what Allah has revealed for his servants to be the most Noble act, which will win them a Ticket of Jannat (Heaven). But, unfortunately it is the most heinous act for Non-Believers, and we are free to criticize such acts and such devilish Prophet of God.

In next part of this article, we will try to shed some light on the offensive fights of the NOBLE Prophet of ISLAM.


Is there any peaceful verse in Quran?

0Quran-550x334-450x303Many Muslims as well as Non-Muslims quote some verses from Qur’an which preaches peace, and Non-Violence, while discussing Violent teaching of Islam. These people simply copy-paste from some Islamic site, which is a very desperate move to prove Islam is a Peaceful Religion. In this article I’ll show the real meaning of those so-called peaceful verses, using their context and the historical reasons behind the revelation of those alleged peaceful verse of Quran.

But let us see first, what mainly Islamic sites say about Qur’an and Peace. “Islam as a religion is totally committed to peace and security. It views with great contempt, breach of peace, anarchy, rioting and terrorism. Muslims as Ummah are a peace-loving community. Jehad under Islam is allowed subject to certain conditions.” [Daroolum-Deoband]

One another site says, “The very word ‘Islam’ (from the Arabic silm) connotes peace. According to a tradition of the Prophet, ‘Peace is Islam’ (Al-Bukhari). This means that peace is one of the prerequisites of Islam. Similarly, a Hadith states: A Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands people are safe. One of the attributes of God described in the Quran is‘As-Salam’, which means peace and security.’ That is to say that God’s Being itself is a manifestation of peace. Indeed, God is Peace (Al-Bukhari). In the Quran divine guidance is likened to the paths of peace. (5:16)” [Islam 101]

Before I proceed I would like to clear one misconception of Muslims and the author of above quote. It is not necessary that a man named ‘Satyavan’, which literally mean ‘Observer of Truth’, is truthful. In very same way it hardly matters what the word ‘Islam’ means, because its teaching, practices and actions of Muslim are incompatible with its meaning, i.e. peaceful. Leave aside the hadith example for now, because it is said that those Hadiths contradicts Quran are unauthentic, so by end of article readers will be convinced that the above quoted Hadith is unauthentic.

So by the above example, we see what Islamic scholar say about Islam and Peace, I agree there are very few verse which can be interpreted as peaceful verse in Qur’an. The very common verse which Muslims quote to prove Islam is a peaceful religion is2:256, which reads:-

Yusuf Ali

Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

This verse is usually quoted by Islamic scholar because it says ‘let there be no compulsion in religion.’ But this verse is not as peaceful as it sounds, and to prove it, let’s see the historical context of the verse. One of Islamic site explains this verse as following:-

The scholars explained that these two verses [10:99 and 2:256], and other similar verses, have to do with those from whom the jizyah may be taken, such as Jews, Christians and Magians (Zoroastrians). They are not to be forced, rather they are to be given the choice between becoming Muslim or paying the jizyah.

Other scholars said that this applied in the beginning, but was subsequently abrogated by Allaah’s command to fight and wage jihad. So whoever refuses to enter Islam should be fought when the Muslims are able to fight, until they either enter Islam or pay the jizyah if they are among the people who may pay jizyah. The kuffaar should be compelled to enter Islam if they are not people from whom the jizyah may be taken, because that will lead to their happiness and salvation in this world and in the Hereafter. Obliging a person to adhere to the truth in which is guidance and happiness is better for him than falsehood. Just as a person may be forced to do the duty that he owes to other people even if that is by means of imprisonment or beating, so forcing the kaafirs to believe in Allaah alone and enter into the religion of Islam is more important and more essential, because this will lead to their happiness in this world and in the Hereafter. This applies unless they are People of the Book, i.e., Jews and Christians, or Magians, because Islam says that these three groups may be given the choice: they may enter Islam or they may pay the jizyah and feel themselves subdued. ” [Source]

As we see in above explanation, that in verse 2:256, Allah is giving Non-Muslims a choice, between Islam or Jizyah, which Muslims say as  ‘No Compulsion in religion’. If the above given explanation is true then we can’t say that this verse is peaceful. Many Islamic scholars also believe that Qur’an 2:256 is abrogated by Qur’an 9:5-6, which clearly says Muslims to fight and kill the polytheists, and leave them when they become Muslim. There is a Hadith recorded in Sahih Bukhari, which also supports Quran 9:5-6, which reads:-

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”

So, we see that either the verse is abrogated by later revealed verse of sword, or does not mean the same which Muslims wants us to believe. Even the Sharia Law proves that, Muslims don’t practice this verse. Non-Muslims are not allowed to preach, build their House of Worship, or propagate their religion in Islamic country. [Source]

Another verse which is widely quoted by Muslims to prove that their religion support peace, and Non-Violence is Qur’an 109:6, which says:-

“For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.”

But when we look back into Historical Background of this verse, it again turns to be less polite verse, than it is said by Muslims. This verse was revealed when some Meccan leaders, Abu Jahl, Walid and others suggested compromise with Muhammad, and they said to Muhammad, that he can worship his God at the same time as the Meccan deities, or alternatively each year. [Historical Development of Qur’an, page 9]

They (Meccans) wanted peace from Muhammad, and wanted to create harmony among Muslims and Non-Muslims, but Allah instantly revealed this Chapter to reply those leaders, who demanded Harmony and Peace. So, as we see this verse is not peaceful, but was revealed to reply an offer made by Meccan leaders for peace.

Further regarding this verse, Ibn Abbas says:-

(Unto you your religion) of disbelief and ascribing partners to Allah, (and unto me my religion) Islam and faith in Allah. The verses of fighting then abrogated this and the Prophet (pbuh) did fight them’

So, even if we consider this verse peaceful, early Islamic scholars thinks says that this verse is abrogated, and prophet did fight those who did not accepted Islam.

The above quoted verse is followed by Qur’an 8:61, which says:-

 And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon Allah . Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.

Ibn Jalalayan in his explanation to this verse says:-

And if they incline to peace (read silm or salm, meaning, ‘settlement’), then incline to it, and conclude a pact with them: Ibn ‘Abbās said, ‘This has been abrogated by the “sword verse” [Q. 9:5]’; Mujāhid said, ‘This [stipulation] applies exclusively in the context of the People of the Scripture, for it was revealed regarding the Banū Qurayza; and rely on God, put your trust in Him; truly He is the Hearer, of words, the Knower, of actions.

So, again we reached to the same conclusion that even if handful of verses in Quran like 8:61, 2:256,109:6 etc are  peaceful verses, but they are abrogated by Qur’an 9:5. Finally we can say that the Peaceful verses in Qur’an are of Meccan period when Muhammad had very less followers, so Allah did not dared to reveal violent verses, and most of peaceful verses in Qur’an is abrogated by the verse of sword which was last to be revealed when Muhammad became strong, then Allah commanded Muslims to kill Non-Believers, until they embrace Islam or pay Jizyah, and feel themselves subdued. [Qur’an 9:5 and 9:29]

So the answer to the question: Is there any peaceful verse in Quran?

Ans: There were few peaceful verses in Quran revealed in Meccan period when Muhammad hardly had 70 followers, but later when he formed a monstrous army of hooligans ,marauders and raiders, then eventually Allah the shock puppet of Muhammad abrogated all the peaceful verses with the violent ones, and ordered Muhammad and his army to kill those who dared to be different in religious views.
