Bitter Love: Another Saga of a Muslim Man and a Western Woman

Bitter Love: Another Saga of a Muslim Man and a Western Woman

Well, my name is C. I am married to a Muslim Arab man. I was born and grew up in the United States . I was 22 when I met my husband through a mutual acquaintance. Our relationship started online for 3 months until we finally met in person in Rome.

When I went to meet him, I did not tell my mother whom I lived with because I knew she would not approve of me meeting a strange Muslim man. Honestly, I don’t know what I was thinking. Here I was, only 22, and running away from my home, telling my family I was going to work when really I was getting on a plane to meet a complete stranger.

To make a long story short, I ended up falling for him and I eventually traveled with him to his country and later married him, despite hearing stories of guys using girls for their passports and everything. I felt these ladies who got used were older or unattractive. Here I was, a little younger than him and I always considered myself to be a pretty girl. Growing up, lots of guys liked me. Plus, being that I am light and blondish, I felt I was exotic for him so that’s why he was attracted to me.

Anyway, as fate may have it, I ended up filing for him and he came to the USA. Prior to him coming here, I was having doubts about Islam. My Roman Catholic background was just way too strong. My relationship with Jesus has always been a very personal one and I will even go so far to say, growing up I was the most religious person in my family, always praying and listening in church. Still, Islam felt exotic and different. I admired how Muslims seemed so devoted and unshaken, so I was quick to marry him in a mosque and accept a Koran from his family which was given to me the minute they met me.

I pretended to embrace the religion for him, but deep down, I saw how racist these people were. I grew up believing all people were equal, regardless of religion. For them, they feel all non-Muslims are dirty. As an animal lover, I also couldn’t accept how they seem to despise animals, which are God’s creatures and as a Catholic woman, I also admired San Francesco and San Francesco di Paola for all they did for the animals. I can go on and on about the reasons this religion and life style turned me off.

I started to have vivid dreams of Jesus. The summer before he came to the U.S.A., I was miraculously reunited with both people who baptized me when I was a baby. A few months ago, I also went to Europe and prior to leaving, I happened to have a dream where I was told to pray to Saint Augustine. I really knew nothing about Saint Augustine, so I googled him as soon as I woke up from that dream. To my surprise, I just so happened to have this dream on the same night that Saint Augustine is celebrated. Again, I knew nothing about St. Augustine or when his saint’s day was!!! After reading about his life, I was moved to tears. For me, it was too big of a sign that I just so happened to dream about a saint from an Arab country, prior to Islam in Algeria.

To make matters stranger, after a long time of not being in church, I walked into a church and the priest just so happened to be quoting Mark 7:18, which is about Jesus making all foods clean. All these things just felt like signs to me that this life of Islam is not for me.

At one time, I believed my husband loved me. I still love and care about him deeply, but I feel he might never change. He never defended me to his family who treated me terribly, especially his mother who humiliated me by putting on my wedding dress and mocking me after I wore it. He never even defended me against his friends. It’s almost as if they came first because they were his same culture and religion, while I was just a dirty Western girl.

Things are so complicated now. He was an angel when he first came here, sometimes working 3 jobs for me in a day to make money for me. Some days, when I was sad, he would even cry with me. Then, he changed after he met this old Syrian Alawi man (btw, my husband is Sunni, not that it really matters). Anyway, this old man sexually harassed me several times even asking me perverted questions about my mother. My husband just laughs with him. He blamed me for the sexual harassment and says I am just saying this because I don’t like him.

Recently, he has moved to another state where this crooked old Syrian guy offered him a business opportunity to manage a taxi cab company. This Syrian man had several businesses in my state, but the City shut down all his businesses so he moved to another state and my husband followed him. My husband still visits me, but I can’t believe if I was his wife and he loved me that he would leave to run a business with a man in another state. He keeps saying he couldn’t get a good job here. Worse yet, he pretty much makes it seem like he wants me to break up with him now. He keeps giving me ultimatums that he wants Muslim children and if I don’t move to Ohio our relationship is over.

I am going to start Med school, so moving to another state is not possible at this point in my life. He does not even have a place there and I know his relationship with this old man is not solid, because this guy had also employed other young Arab guys who were friends of my husband and then he fought with them and kicked them out of his life.

All the same, I told my husband before he came to the U.S.A., I could only stay in this state and that I was still a student. He agreed. As for the Muslim kids, I just can no longer agree to this. I told him, even though before our marriage I agreed to appease him, this was before I knew the truth about Islam. Now I know, I can’t raise my kids to hate me and my culture and religion, while being close to him and his family who hate me.

For a while, he seemed open to the idea that kids should be what their mom is. He even said for a while to let them decide and he even would listen to me when I talked about Jesus. Now, this has all changed. His Arab friends as well as being in contact with his family again have destroyed our relationship more.

I’m hurt because I really felt I was starting to change him and he became a gentler person. Either way, I’m lost now. I have nobody and I’m severely depressed. I feel this is the end of my relationship.

My family supports me, but they don’t want to hear me talk about my problems with him. They feel I made my bed, so now I should lie in it. I alienated them so much by marrying him secretly. I also have no close friends. Do you know of a group for women like me, currently married to Muslim men or ex-wives of Muslim men? I just want people to talk to.

I am only 24 now and I feel like life is over. My two year wedding anniversary is coming up and I know everything is over. I need some comfort without people judging. I cry all day long. Some days, I can’t sleep or eat. My husband acts annoyed by me instead of comforting me. His ultimatum about Muslim kids has hurt me beyond belief. He knows I won’t accept.

My only hope is that this man will convert to Christianity. I know it’s close to impossible. Do you have any suggestions for talking to Muslims? I just want some peace, even if him and me leave each other tomorrow, I care about him and want him to see the truth one day. Sorry for this long email. Thanks for reading and for allowing me to vent. Please write back and let me know what you think.

 

***

Sorry to bother you again. I just feel so compelled to write to you because I know you were Muslim at one time and I appreciate what you do to expose Islam. I am also trying to find out what the turning point was for you. My husband does not even like to admit there are apostates in Islam! He dismisses it as they are liars or trying to get U.S. nationality or be spies for Israel.

Anyway, today was a rough day. My husband was visiting me for the past few days and this friend of his kept calling, so I screamed while my husband was on the phone and this prompted him to recite talaq. We are still married on paper. Islamic marriage means nothing to me. Still, I know it means something for him, so I am very depressed he would say it after 2 years.

Anyway, from what I understand, you are not practicing any religion right now. I am not sure if you are agnostic or atheist or if I’m wrong and you are into some type of religion, but may I ask, did you always have doubts about Islam or were you at one time devoted? What made you finally see the flaws in Islam? How old were you?  I am obviously Christian and even if I can’t get my husband to convert to my religion. Is there any way I can get him to see the faults with Islam?

Every time I try to have conversations with him to discuss the violence in Islam and the hate Muslims have for non-Muslims, he accuses me of being racist or tells me if I respect him I wouldn’t talk about his religion. For a while, it seemed he welcomed my conversations. Now, his friends have changed everything as well as pressure from his family. Very frustrated. I wish there was a forum or an outlet to meet other women in my similar situation.

 

Dear C,

One thing I can tell you is that life is not over and things are not as gloomy as they appear to you now.  In fact as I see it from my vantage point I think you are in the best time of your life even though you can’t see it now.

This man is not right for you.  Your marriage with him was a mistake and it will bring you nothing but sadness. You cling to him and desperately hope the impossible. The truth is that the best thing for you is to get out of this so called marriage.

You are only 24.  This is the beginning of life.  You have 70 more years ahead of you. Yes you made a mistake, as if no one does. Sometimes mistakes are so innocent and yet the consequences are so severe that it seems unfair.  Imagine you drive a car. You become distracted for a second and an accident happens that leaves you crippled for life.  That is a big price to pay for such a tiny mistake. That is life.

In your case your mistake was huge, but fortunately its consequence is not that big, at least not yet. You don’t have a child, which means you can end this abusive relationship today and forget it completely.  Yes it hurts. But the hurt will go away soon and once you meet another guy.

I am not a religious person. You may say I am agnostic, but for all practical purposes I am an atheist.  I don’t discard the possibility that there might have been some sort of intelligence behind the laws of physics, but I don’t believe in any god intervening in the affairs or the design of the world.  However, I know about the power of faith.  People believing in Jesus and God can see miracles happen in their lives.  I am against fanaticism, not against belief. If you can believe in Jesus this is the moment that your faith can come to your help and pull you literally out of this nightmare you have put yourself in.

All those dreams and those spiritual experiences you are having are telling you that you need to get away from this abusive relationship.  You can believe that God is sending you subtle messages. A rationalist may say those are the voices of your subconscious mind.  In either case you must listen to them.  You must get out of this abusive relationship. This man does not beat you, at, least not yet. But he is emotionally abusing you and these abuses become more intense as you become more dependent on him emotionally.

Islam transforms the psychology of its followers. Muslims are not emotionally healthy people.  They are narcissists, all of them, and to the extent that they follow their prophet. The insanity of one man is bequeathed to his followers and they all show the symptoms of malignant self-love.  That included me when I was still a believer.

The reason your husband and his family and friends disdain and belittle you is because they are narcissists. They can’t help it. It is by demeaning others that Muslims can feel good about themselves.  You can see that in the comments they leave in this blog. They behave like savages – are abusive, violent, arrogant, bully, misogynist, dictatorial and backward and yet all their comments are about how bad are the western countries. Even after America has sacrificed so much to bring democracy to Iraq and Afghanistan, a great majority of Muslims hates America and accuses Americans of killing Muslims. The concept of fairness is alien to these people. They are genuinely incapable of fairness.  Fairness is one of the most important faculties that make us human, distinct from animals.  Muslims lack fairness.  The evolution of humanity in Muslims has not yet happened and as long as they follow a psychopath there is no hope that it will ever happen.

After Americans left,  Iraq is ‘drowning’ in terrorist attacks  American solders were defending the people against the terrorists but since the terrorists were Muslims all Muslims hated the Americans.  This insanity is unique to Muslims and its root is in the Quran and the mental illness of its author.  Muslims can’t tolerate a non-Muslim killing a Muslim even if that Muslim is a terrorist who murders them and rapes them.  This sounds unbelievable, but it is true. If you save the life of a Muslim by killing another Muslim who was about to kill him. The person whom you saved will hate you for killing a Muslim and may want to kill you for  it. There is no logic in this that you and I can understand, but this is the insanity of the Muslim mind.

There is a story of a man who went to Muhammad after hearing he wanted to kill his father. This young man, the son of Abdullah ibn Ubay, begged Muhammad that if he wants to kill his father, allow him to do it. He reasoned that if another Muslim kills his father, as a dutiful son, he will have to take his revenge and kill a Muslim for a kafir, which would mean he would go to hell. But by killing his father  he will not be tempted to sin. This is Islam for you.

Muslims are the dirtiest people and call others dirty.  This dirtiness is a different kind of dirtiness. It is associated with belief.  You can be the cleanest person but if a drop of rain falls from your clothe on a Muslim he believes that you have defiled him.  Because of your faith you are considered to be najis, untouchable. This is not something ignorant mullahs have made up. This teaching comes from the Quran. The Quran says unbelievers are najis.

Muslims project their own undesirable traits on others and despise them for what they don’t like in themselves. But their hypocrisy is such that while they disdain and disparage the west and believe the non-Muslims to be najis, they do everything they can to become refugees in the kafir countries that they hate.

You ask about the turning point in my life that made me see the light and hope to make that happen for this man you love.  This is not something that happens outside you. It is something that happens inside you. To see the light you need to have conscience, be fair and have empathy. When I was a child (10 years old) we lived in a village.  My mother kept a few chicken. They laid eggs which we ate.  One day my father said he invited a guest and asked my mother to kill one of the hens. I hugged the hen selected, hold her to my chest and cried, begging my mother not to kill her. I had seen her grow, and fed her. I could not bear the cruelty of killing her just so our guest can eat chicken. When I was 11, one day of spring, when I was coming back from school I found a little bird fallen from the tree. I could not find his nest. I took him home and tried to nurse him. I gave him minced meet but he could not digest it and died. I buried him and sat next to his little grave crying for hours.  I had a compassionate heart when I was a child.  Cruelty and injustice to others pained me. They still do. I could not understand why Eid Qurbai, the day Muslims sacrifice animals and spill the blood of innocent beasts is the most joyous day for them. How can the sight of blood make them happy?

Don’t expect miracles. There is something missing in the psyche of Muslims.  They don’t have empathy. They don’t have conscience. They have no idea of fairness. These are faculties we expect in evolved or spiritual people.  Muslims don’t have them. Their spiritual faculty is underdeveloped.

Muslims do good deeds, which really is not good deed but mere following the Islamic rituals, for reward. That is all their spiritual evolution allows them to do.  They don’t do any act of goodness for the sake of feeling good about it. It must be for rewards. This alone tells you they are spiritually midgets. We kafirs don’t do good deeds because we expect a return. We do it because it is the right thing to do and makes us feel good. That is not the case with Muslims. It is all about Allah seeing, writing it down and paying you back 10 fold when you die. If this is not pathetic what is?

I know it sounds outrageous and many ignorant people will call me hate monger for saying these things, but the truth is that Muslims are not fully evolved humans.  I don’t give a damn what ignorant people think about me.  I am telling the truth from my perspective, whether people like me or not.  People with conscience exist among Muslims, but they are not the majority and they end up leaving Islam when they learn about it.

Your parents are right in washing their hands and telling you to lie in the bed you made for yourself.  People have to learn from their mistakes.  However, if you were my daughter I would tell you leave this man today.  He already pronounced talaq, which although to you means nothing to him it means divorce and that is final. The legalities are just formalities for him.  If I were you I would jump up and down with joy.  File for divorce and get out of this abusive relationship with this neanderthal now. Kick him out of the house and change the locks or even move to another place where he can’t find you.

It is possible that once he realizes he is going to lose you, and if he still thinks he needs you and has not taken full advantage of you, he may come begging you to take him back.  Don’t be fooled again.

Young people give too much importance to love. The truth is that love is very transient.  You will feel sad for a few days but it will pass sooner than you think. Go out and find friends. Join dancing classes, cooking classes, or become a volunteer. Just don’t sit at home.  Get out and do something.  Twenty four is too young for marriage.  You have plenty of time to find your soul mate and create a happy family.  Ten years from now, when you have a career, a loving husband and a couple of adorable children you may think about now and smile, thanking God for pulling you out of this mess.

Write in the comments. There are other women who have been in your situation. They will leave their comments and you won’t feel lonely.  I am also going to revive the forum of faithfreedom.org where we had a section dedicated to women married to Muslim men.

Be happy.  Getting rid of this man is the best thing that could have happen to you. Don’t worry about helping him.  You can’t help those who don’t want to be helped.  Go to your church when no one is there, sit on your knees and say, Jesus, I have come back to you, please accept me..  Then walk out with confidence and assurance that you are in safe hands.   Go to your parents or call them and tell them you made a mistake and now you have come to your senses and want to walk in the light.

Finish your studies first.  There is no rush to get married. Muslim men shatter the confidence of their women. This is the first thing they do to control them.  Regain your confidence.  Future is all yours.

  1. I have two answers for you C. 1) If your story is true, I will try helping you and would surely provide you inputs on how to proceed. Please inbox me at zealchat@yahoo.com. 2) If your story is false, meaning it is only been written here to make this so called "religious debate", then a simple advise to all.. emotions are not confined to religions… even a muslim girl if cheated would face the similar agony… have fun bye

  2. Why are you staying? No, it is not going to work Leave now, I mean today and for heaven's sake make sure you don't bring to work a child with this man.

  3. Oh girl I can relate to you! I married a Muslim man on a whim and it has not been easy. Our cultures are so different that it's hard to co-exist, or to have a great relationship. Remember that good relationships require: friendship, passion and commitment. Ask yourself: is he a good friend to me? Is there passion? Are we committed? If anything is missing, it's time to reason why. It would also be a good idea to learn about abuse so that you can recognize it in your relationship. 

    To tell you my story, and to make you feel less alone, I married a Muslim man I met on the internet. He told me he loved me and wanted to marry me after three days and I went along with it (for some reason I can't imagine). After 8 mo. of talking I went to Europe and spent 3 mo. with him. When I got there, I found out he was talking to other women online, and when I confronted him about it, he made excuses and got angry. That was red flag number two (which I also ignored). After I left and came back to the US, I filed his immigration forms (which cost over a thousand dollars) and con't. to talk to him online. I kept getting a feeling like there was another woman in the picture, but it was so hard to tell because of the distance. When he finally got to the US after about a year, he had a dating profile on his computer out in the open for me to see. He told me it was his friends site (but it had his picture, I mean, how stupid did he think I was?) so, I again ignored another red flag. Our wedding had already been planned and I felt like I had to go through with it. When we were wedding dress shopping, a waitress gave him her phone number and he took it. We had just bought our rings! I married him two days later, to my chagrin. The wedding was not a happy one for me, I wanted to run for the hills, but I felt like I had to marry him because he had come so far to marry me. We are still married, and as far as I know he has been faithful. But he is very controlling and abusive, and it has happened gradually. He seemed great in the beginning, he was very charming. But he has fits of rage in which he breaks things around our house. He is verbally and emotionally abusive. He never comforts me when I cry and tries to control our finances. I have a separate account, so I have avoided complete control in that area. He wants to send most of our money back home to his family who is not suffering for anything, while we struggle to make a living. He tries to control what I wear, but I have let him know that I won't be controlled in that way. He expects me to be home all the time cooking and cleaning, but I have let him know that I'm a student and won't be doing that as much as he would like. He never gives me any praise or compliments. He's very critical of everything, especially my appearance (although he doesn't care about his own health). I'm also at the point where I'm not sure if this is going to work. I've decided to: 1) create and state good boundaries 2) communicate clearly and 3) see if we can work to find a balance between our two cultures. If not, I am prepared to go, because life is too short to be yanked around on someone else's leash. 

  4. You are stuck because it is official: It is forbidden to leave Islam on pain of death. Check this carefully if you don't believe us. Muslims may only tell you this when it is already too late.

    Did you hear from Muslims something like: "There is no compulsion in religion" as a rule in Islam? Oh, but we already know and later (when you are inside) they will tell you that that verse is abrogated by the verse of the sword, which means business with war.

  5. @RAs
    What is your motivation to become a Muslim? Why the postponement? Do you first intend to have a lot of pleasure with things forbidden by Islam?

    Remember, once you're in Islam you're stuck, in Islam, and forbidden to think outside it's box so to speak, forbidden to believe anything science comes up with that contradicts Islam, stuck in your development in your hopefully long life.

    What if Islam is "perfect" for you and attractive but UNTRUE, only manmade, as is abundantly shown here and elsewhere? Do you still choose for it, just because it feels good? Remember, then heaven and hell are also not true.

    What if you later, when you are Muslim, find out, as we have, that the Quran, which has # 6300 verses, has only 83 "nice verses" and 543 very hateful verses for Kaffirs, non-Muslims?

    What if you later learn that so many of your fellow-Muslims worldwide really are "stuck in the past", narrow-minded, oppressing women? Look at the movie Honor Diaries (easy to google) or it's trailer. In there we see a Taliban-man repeatedly strike a woman with a whip. But you already knew Muslims weren't perfect, of course.

    Can't you find something more useful to do with your life? You could hardly do worse than making yourself a slave (of Allah). 

  6. @RAs
    How do you know its perfect? And perfect in what?

  7. i am not a muslim… but i am planning to become one after I graduate since i am living in a non-muslim country.Islam is perfect…but not muslims…

  8. Your response is getting weak and intentionally missing the truth of what he said. Whether he copy pasted or quoted from the koran is NOT the issue. He clearly pasted WHAT THE KORAN ACTUALLY SAYS so drop your redundant talk. And it SAYS Allah leads astray (misguides) whom he will. It's not a case of he could have created all humans as angels but didnt.. its a case of he could NOT LEAD THEM ASTRAY BUT DOES.!!! and this whole bit about about ppl can't see because they dont believe is non sense. All you have effectively said is that even if ppl can see the OBVIOUS flaws all you have to do is apply the filter of presupposition through belief and make it work by doing mental gymnastics. Peace

  9. //"But muslim never judge religion from people"//

    Interesting. But according to Muslims God + Mohammed introduced (maybe a better version of) Islam. For what purpose? What influence it was supposed to have? Has it worked? Did it perhaps work for a while, but now no longer?

    What if Islam does not make any significant difference in the goodness, morality, happiness of people? What if Muslims are just as good or bad on average as all the other people?

    Then Islam surely is superfluous. And abiding to it and it's rituals can be classified as a "hobby". Or it is just done to please Allah", who then is very selfish, only asking people to support, gratify, promote himself, not humanity.

  10. I can agree that the original letter and the response certainly SEEM to have been written by the same person. I can't say for 100% certain. However, I CAN say with 100% certainty that the original poster is NOT a native speaker of English. (English teacher with 15 years of experience with non-native speakers, including Arabic speakers, so I have an excellent ear for these things.) The writer's native language seems to be Arabic given some of the errors he/she makes.

  11. Sweetheart, when I was your age, I too thought my faith is unshakable. But you are young and there is still a lot to learn. Who can say you won't be the won who will help millions to leave Islam?

  12. //"So how can you blame a religion because a person..Islam is a religion Muslims are people. ,people can be good and bad…"//

    Do we blame and oppose Islam because of persons? OK. So now, why do you PRAISE and support Islam? Is this not also because of persons?!

    you must think that Islam is good because Muslims you know are GOOD people. Now then, what if that really is a MISTAKE of YOU?

    Because those GOOD Muslims may be only good because of outside influence and not because of Islam! And you already know, you said it yourself, that there are GOOD people in other religions, beliefs too. So what is it that makes Islam unique, or better than the other religions?

    We say; there is nothing in Islam that is not also found in other religions, so why do YOU keep PRAISING and supporting Islam, so why do you criticize us for BLAMING Islam and replacing it with something we think is better?

  13. //"WHO the hell gave right to christian to talk about Islam…..?…….How can an engineer treat a patient and a doctor fix an engine"//

    What you write here is preposterous in a democratic society, Superman! Everybody, knowledgeable about Islam or not, has the right to talk about it! And form judgement, especially when some Christians are hurt by some Muslims. And that happens, a lot, in Islamic countries. And it is known and shown by MEMRITV and websites such as this.

    But also, there are infidels professors and ex-Muslims and interested infidels who know Islam inside out and there are many Muslims who hardly (bother to) know Islam at all. And that is interesting because according to you they need to completely read Islam to understand it. But we know many don't. And misinterpret it. And when we report this, don;t blame us, but educate the misinterpreting Muslims, please.

    But the rule in Islam is that nobody born in Islam may apostasize on pain of death. And why is that if so many Muslims, like the boyfriend in the story, do not even know Islam very well???

  14. That's the line losers often use .The truth is you couldn't defend Islam.There are abundance of facts that islam too is made up of lies.

  15. You should know the facts about Islam first. Try reading your religious books to your satisfaction.

    Take some random facts like pedophilia,child marriage,slavery,hate against Jews ,killing of animals,etc. from Islam question yourself (ask your elders/Mullahs instead if you have guts you'll know another aspect of Islam )are they something a religion should propagate or you should become a medium to propagate such things.

    You should once take a look at the book :Understanding Mohammad by Ali Sina.(If you ask Ali he might give a free copy) to clear your doubts about Islam.

    // our religion is always misinterpreted the thing that is wrong with our world
    Do you know about the debates none of the muslim scholars were able to respond satisfactorily after reading Ali's book.

    You have 2 options :
    1)Read the book then comment choice will be your's.
    2)Live in blind faith without knowing the true face of Islam as most others do.

  16. Remember, Halima, back in the time of Mohammed, in the 7th century, there were not so many people as now. And now there is so much more knowledge, literally millions times more, and people are so much better educated!

    And think about it. If Adam was the first prophet, and Mohammed the last, why is the gap between Mohammed and the day of judgement so wide and maybe getting wider for a hundred years from now or more? Between Isa and Mohammed there were merely some 600 years, and MOhammed came to rectify humans. Why wasn't rectification of humans necessary in 1400 years, when humans changed and learned so much?

  17. /"our religion is always misinterpreted"//
    And don't you think that that is because your religion is:  UNCLEAR, INCOMPLETE, OBSOLETE, AMBIGUOUS? TOO DIFFICULT to understand? And notice that not only infidels misinterpret, but that millions of Muslims, according to other Muslims, also misinterpret your religion!

    //"today is if they read one thing they think the whole thing is bad."//
    And can't you imagine that those who taught you Islam and you yourself are so naive that if you read one thing that is true and good in Islam, you think the WHOLE Islam is true and good?

  18. //"may just be a 12 year old girl but my devotion as a muslim is something that can never be broken even if I'm not the perfect muslim"//
    Halimah, if it is true that you are so young, you are only just beginning life. And it is possible that you live to be a 100 years old. How can you say that your devotion to be Muslim will never be broken?

    First of all, aren't you now fully dependent on your parents and community? Of course you cannot do anything else now than stay in Islam.

    But when you are an adult, then you can choose. And you may find something to replace Islam with. You know, it is simply a wrong reason to be devoted to a religion only because your parents and friends are in it. That was the case with the pagans before Islam too, but Mohammed disapproved of that, didn't he? He was not in favor of eternal loyalty to the religion one is born in, but he was in favor of choosing the best, the truest, religion around, despite what someones parents believed and practiced.

    I believe in a different God and evolution and why is it different now from the time of Mohammed when someone asks persons to shed the false religion of their parents, Islam, and replace it with a truer religion, or maybe set of truer beliefs.

    If your ancient forefathers could change from paganist idolators to Muslim, why can't you in your adult life change from Muslim to a truer religion, a truer set of beliefs? Didn't your ancestors love their parents like you?Or did their parents perhaps let them free to choose?

    Remember, choosing a religion is not about being loyal to your parents or community or people, you can be totally loyal to them in other ways. No, choosing a religion is about seeking the highest truth you can find. and shedding untruth, even if told by parents, loved ones.

    And if parents and loved ones really understood what unconditional love was, they would let you be completely free to search for and belief in the highest truth you can find and to shed untruth.

    But it could well be that both you and your parents/ loved ones just are not committed to find the highest truth and real freedom of religion. And if this is so, how can you criticize or question us, who LOVE TO FIND the highest truth we can find and for that have shedded many untruths? Many writers and posters here DID KNOW Islam, and even WERE MUSLIMS themselves. Why shouldn't they understand Islam better than you and your parents? Why would they have concluded it was false and faulty?

  19. If anyone agrees with me please post

  20. I am a muslim and I am totally devoted to my religion everyone here is reffering (looking) at the bad side of islam.I've been a muslim since I was a born and I would not do anything to change it  
    Because I look at my religion in a different way if you look and understand islam properly you will see that it has the answers to the whole world things that just can't be explained.I'm not trying to say all muslims are perfect of course were not no one is unfortunatly there are some bad people out there but be pesamistic look at rhe bright side .if anyones really intrested in what I'm saying or just want answers please look into islam carefully .our religion is always misinterpreted the thing that is wrong with our world today is if they read one thing they think the whole thing is bad. I may just be a 12 year old girl but my devotion as a muslim is something that can never be broken even if I'm not the perfect muslim.I know what I'm saying doesn't really relate to the topic but it's extremely important to me. 

  21. /Think normally..use the frontal lobe of your brain./

    OK .What do you mean by the term PEDOPHILE?

  22. But muslim never judge religion from people …only christain do it…muslims read other religion understand it and then judge it..

  23. WHO the hell gave right to christian to talk about Islam…..?…….How can an engineer treat a patient and a doctor fix an engine…..you all guys donot make sense talking all bullshits….Realting your shit worldly problems to Islam….If you want to marry a Muslim man then covert to Islam then you will know the benefits of Islam…or if u dont want to convert to Islam then marry a christain…Does ISLAM forces you to marry a muslim.????   Little knowledge is a dangerous thing…you need to completely read Islam to understand it…not from a few words from your punk loser friend said about islam…..it is different when you read Islam completely..knowing something alittle bit and knowing some thing completely is hell different…its same as you learnt how to take off an aircraft and you didnt learn how to land…and you are blaming the aircraft…its same as you are watching a movie ,a guy is killing somebody and you said a bad guy a killer ,and you didnt see the movie,s earlier  part where the victum kills his mother…
    There Good people and bad people..I m not defending muslims..Muslims are people they can be good they can be bad…Same as not all the christain are good..there are rapist ,gay, prostitutes…and offcourse Good people…

    If you blame Islam because of muslims then i will say some other christain is using your brain to do it,,,your parents your christain friends all of the anti muslims around you and your society but not you….Again i m not defending islam..

    Think normally..use  the frontal lobe of your brain..MusliM.  Is a person a human,,a man Islam is a religion.   So how can you blame a religion because a person..Islam is a religion Muslims are people. ,people can be good and bad…Or if you dont understood,,,,there are gay and prostitutes and rapist in christain countries ie nonmuslim coutries,,,should the muslims blame christianity for it..does the bile orders you to be gays ,prostitutes and rapist..and use drugs ,night clubs and one night stands and much more….offcourse muslim understand christainity more than christain do as Jesus is mention more respectfully is the Koran.
    So this is the huge shit in christain people mind they judge Islam from people…people can be good and bad…there are good muslims and bad muslims…there are good christain and bad christain..

  24. Hey  Mr. Sina, you forgot to write the moral of this story?  OK i will add that for you. :D
    And the moral of this story is "Haters always hate" I am sure you are part of Zionism which are filling your mouth with money like the Wafa Sultan. And because of people like you, many other people hate good people. Your this blog is doing nothing except spreading hate among Human. Remember one thing, Good and Bad People are everywhere even in Iran and Canada. You proved your wisdom level by this blog ;)
    I read stories and it all seems fake to me. Do you have any source to prove these stories?. In the end i just want to say spread love, not hate. Respect Humanity.  Hope you like the moral of this story.  :D

  25. Why..because we sound literate? Is that how you can tell?

  26. That's why in the united states we have a seperation of church and state. They cannot co exist.

  27. //"I just think you are a bit confused about religion and about Arab culture, because none of the things you mention are embraced by Islam,"//

    Look, Jannah, you visited this website and wrote the above. But if you had thoroughly read this website and that of other counterjihadists, like Jihad Watch, Islam Watch, Answering Muslims, you would know how knowledgeable about Islam the writers and maaaaaany posters, often ex-Muslims, are.

    So they can retort to you: We think that you, Jannah, are a bit confused about Islam.

    Probably because Quran-Hadiths-Sira are too incomplete, unclear, ambiguous, prone to misunderstanding and incapable of improvement by mutation.

    Because while you say that the things mentioned are not embraced by "Islam", millions of Muslims say that they are. And the proof of that is shown all the time on counterjihadist websites and they are very knowledgeable about Islam, from the best sources.

    But not only that, they consistently show, through MEMRI-tv and other sources, what it is that influential Muslim clerics and leaders tell their listeners in the Muslim countries and these say that the things mentioned ARE embraced by Islam. Or should we say "Their Islam"?

    I suggest you humbly admit that YOU do not speak for "Islam" but only for YOUR interpretation/ version of Islam and go from there.

  28. //:just because of bad experience we suffered in Muslims hand that doesnt make us blame Islam or see wrong in Islam"//

    And I like to react in the same way to this Muslim. WHY is he Muslim???
    I say: Just because of good experience we (non-Muslims) enjoyed in Muslims that does NOT make us PRAISE and believe in Islam or see the good in Islam.

    Or if we do see the good in Islam, we know that same good, and more of it, and different and better good is also available outside Islam.

    it is my opinion that Muslims should not get away with always denying the bad influence of Islam, while not even questioning the good influence or unique good influence of Islam. Which presumably is the reason why Allah intervened in history and why  they are Muslims.

  29. //"Stop blaming islam because u had gotten married to the wrong man. There are bad men all over the world and they need not be muslim to be bad."//

    I only saw this comment just now, because a new comment was posted on this thread.

    I like to react to what this Muslim is saying: Why is (s)he Muslim??? I say: Stop PRAISING Islam because you experienced or heard something GOOD from Muslims. There are good men all over the world and they need NOT BE MUSLIM to be good.

    Because: Muslims are so quick to doubt and deny all bad influence of Islam, but it does not enter their minds that by the same token they are far too gullible in automatically assuming that Islam does have GOOD influence. As long as they doubt, why don't they doubt that?

    And even Islam does have some good influence, then still we say that outside Islam there exists the same good influence, and more of the same and different good influence, even better infuence.

    Which really makes Islam superfluous. and some kind of unnecessary intervention of Allah. And then Islam can be seen as only a HOBBY by Muslims, but not as some unique good way of life.

  30. Hi, I'm converted Muslim, I was never strong religiously because Catholicism never made sense to me when I grew up, it was until I was introduced to Islam that all made sense. I just think you are a bit confused about religion and about Arab culture, because none of the things you mention are embraced by Islam, the only way of life that all prophets including Jesus (pbuh) followed. It is sad to hear your story though, I wish you both would have thought about all the implications, my suggestion to you, and not only because of your husband, is research from a good source about Islam, regardless of where your relationship ends up being. 

  31. Dear C-
    I see that I am late to this conversation, with the first comments posted over 62 weeks ago.I am not one to ever comment on posts, but your story touched me deeply as I can relate in a very personal way. I too, met and fell in love with an arab man. I too, met and married him in secret fearing my family's disapproval. I too, was married nearly two years before the hopelessness of my situation came to a head.

    When I first met my husband he seemed to be a dream come true! So handsome, so charming, so worldly. It was such a magical adventure for a small town girl from the midwest. I guess I was dazzled. His family was good and gracious to me (with the exception of one of his brother-in-laws) I was never pressured or asked to convert to Islam. I was told by him and that since I am Christian, I was considered people of the book and should be respected. While I was living with his family, I was introduced to other Christians living in the city. I truly believed I had met the perfect man. I believed he would love, respect and honor me as I did him. I was so eager for our life to begin in USA, but that is when it all changed.

    It started out with little things. Asking my opinion on things and then taking the word of some stranger (male) over mine. Mocking me for my pale skin and blue eyes (things he had once professed to love about me). Slowly, my self esteem and confidence began to crumble. Questioning my whereabouts on night I worked overtime, I actually had to take him to my office to show a time stamp on the software project I was working on before he would believe I had not been out being a "slut". He would lie to me, he would lie about me. He was so unpredictable. One moment he was his "old self" loving and charming, the next moment he was cursing me. then the physical abuse began. I became a nervous wreak. I was constantly walking on egg shells to keep the peace. It began to effect my health.

    Thankfully, one morning I woke and decided this is not the life God had intended for me. As a child of God, I know I am entitled to love and respect, just as God loves me. I filed for divorce on November 1, 2006 and it was final by Nov.12th. When I received the final papers it was as if a tremendous weight had been lifted from me. I am not saying everything was easy and rosey after the divorce. It was not. I took plenty of time to heal and forgive myself. It took even longer to regain my confidence and learn to trust myself again. But it came be done.

    I guess what I am trying to say is, although it will be painful and difficult, you can and will come through the other side a better and happier person. My advice to you is focus on your school, be by yourself and truly learn who you are. Marriage can be a good thing, if the husband is the right person for you. You should both support respect and lift each other up. I wish you luck and strength.

    On a side note, I have noticed many people on this forum making this an issue about the evils of Islam. These posts should focus on assisting a women to leave an abusive marriage and giving her strength. I would remind everyone that where ever you go in this world there are good people and bad people. It makes no difference if the are christian, jews, hindus,muslims black, white or polk-a-dot. Some people just suck. There are also wonderful, good people to be found in every nation and of every creed. As Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
    Love God, love yourself and the rest will follow.

  32. I was in a relationship with a muslim man as well. He is kurdish from Iraq. We met when we both were working for a meat factory in Tx. I fell for him hard. I was only 19 at the time and he was 27. I love that he was older, from adifferent country. His dark thick hair.I put up with alot from him. Just like u he moves to Ohio because here small town theres no good jobs. He promised and swore that we would be together soon. And everytime I understood because i love him. His friends live with him and hes waiting for them to find a place. He doesnt want to bring me in the middle of that. Well its been a year since I havent seen him. Still his friends live there but not as much. I had broke up with him a couple times to see what he wud do. Like fight for me, come and find me? Or do something if i really meant so much to him. He would call me his wife. Saying he wanted kids ine day. And me so happy and day dreaming about that day. Then he would ignore me for a week maybe.even two. And there i wud be begging calling to explain wat was wrong. I would never get an answer. Last summer I had seen on his facebook that he was in California. I was shocked. It was a slap to the face. Why can you take a trip there and not take a trip to come and visit me. I was soo heartbroken. He always just expected for me to be okay. He never physically abused me. I was always on guard tho becauae i also researched many things about muslims and the quran. He did tho emotionly abused me took advantage of the fact that he knew i loved him so much. I didnt go thru as much as you did. I dont think I cud have puttn up with so much. Maybe its cuz ive seen my mother abused by the she loved and my sister as well. I always told myself I wud never let a man disrespect in any way. I still love him and wish the best for him. Not once did he bad mouth me. But i did call him a coward to have the courage and be a man and explain to me all his situations but he always ignored me. I hope you did get a divorce and know that you dont need a man to make u happy. I know how it is how you feel they use their words so nicely and the fact that he was a foreigner attracted me more. I am a christian and i have so much faith that everything will work out for the best.. 

  33. Yes I agree that you are right to walk away from this marriage. You're still so young and I wish for you happiness and hopefully a healthy, content relationship in your future.
    May I add though that I as a RC woman has been happilly married to a Sunni Muslim for thirty years. This idea that 'all' Muslim men are deceitful.
    , abusive etc has to stop. We have a daughter who though raised in my faith has fallen in love with a Shi'ite Muslim boy. My husband and I are devastated by the change in her character and the influence he has over her.
    After reading your story I will pray to St Augustine for intervention and trust that our daughter will see the light before he affects the rest of her life

  34. Change Arab with Muslim, If I were a western woman I would not date a Muslim man. from any country.

  35. I have also dated an Arab man from Iraq/Jordan for two years from 21 years old to 23 years old. I wasn't really in love with him at the beginning but he someone got me to fall deep in love with him about 6 months later of going on dates with him. He was so intelligent, responsible, gentle-man like, generous, and always said the most romantic words to me. It was like he was too perfect especially at such a young age (20 years old), no American young adult man is like that, they don't start becoming like that until they reach 30 years old so I totally fell for this too-good-to-be-true young Arab man. Well two years later, emotional abuse started to happen, he would let his friends sexually harass me and do nothing about it, his friends who he hadn't even been friends with that long, he had been dating me longer, would always be on his friends' sides more than mine, I was shocked, it hurt me terribly. Better yet, at the end of our relationship right before the final break up, he would make fun of me to his classmates/friends about me and it was just total self-destruction/harassment/ I felt so embarassed and so weak and humilated and worthless. There's no reason anyone should do this to you especially your boyfriend or romantic partner. At the beginning he did propose to me, but hearing many negative words from my family and other american natives about the arab men, I thought twice, I loved him so much but I did not have my full trust in him from hearing negative words from the past about them, THANK GOD AND THANK MY FAMILY FOR TELLING ME THE TRUTH ABOUT ARAB MENlAT THE VERY BEGINNING, or else I might have been doomed like the initial writer of this blog. Since our breakup, I have learned to hate arab men. They cannot be trusted. They act so innocent, loving, respecful, too-good at the very beginning, ladies….!!! Listen up, it is so fake. Never trust arab men, they will ruin your inner spirit that once was beautiful and healthy. They will torture you emotionally and possibly even physically. Be warned…

  36. Arab men suck. They seem perfect at the beginning and once you fall deep in love with them and they know it, you are doomed!! That is there whole plan at the beginning, to get you to fall in love with them so once they got you, they take away your soul and kill your inner spirit that was once beautiful and healthy. They destroy you. They abuse you emotionally and physically. Arab men think they are inferior to women which is absurb. You beautiful women out there, take care of yourself, don't let an ignorant Arab man or yet anyone damage you in anyway because no one has the right to do that to anyone. Go get strong, start eating healthy balanced nutrition-rich meals, go work out at the gym including weight-bearing weights, do some yoga, join a jiu jitsu class (there's hot gorgeous good-hearted AMERICAN men there that you can meet :) ) go get happy, strong, and independent, and be good to yourself, respect yourself, and be the gorgeous woman you have always been. You always deserve the better man, and always deserve better. 

  37. Arab men suck. They seem perfect, almost too perfect at the beginning until they get what they want (your devoted love that becomes toxic to yourself) and then once they know that you are in deep love with them, they got you for good into hell. Don't let that happen to you, be a smart woman, love yourself, don't make yourself unhealthy by giving your soul to some asshole arab.

  38. Per favore aiutatemi! Mia figlia a 16 anni si è innamorata di un Marocchino che come tutti ipocriti islamici si dichiarava innamorato e non praticante. Ma  a distanza di due anni e mezzo trovo mia figlia persa nel fondamentalismo islamico, si è convertita e porta anche Hijab. Abbiamo cercato di svegliarla, ma è talmente manipolata dalla comunità marocchina che è scappata di casa all'ultima anno di liceo per andare a vivere con lui e la sua famiglia. Noi genitori siamo disperati per aver perso così la nostra  unica figlia. Cosa possiamo fare? Come possiamo salvarla dalle paludi dell'slam integralista? Per favore ci dia un suggerimento. 

  39. Dont tell me u lost glasses. its written about hisham bin urwah.

  40. *sneezes* sorry i got flue. hm?

  41. I am sad to read these posts abd the story. Not all Muslims are bad. Like Christianity or any other religion we have people who do not do right. This page is full of hate from the woman who wrote it abd the people who respond with hate. Shame on all of you. I am Muslum and proud. I am everything sweet and kind and gentle. Yes there are fanatics out there in all religions. Be careful judging for you will be judged. I love all you. Christian, Jews, Atheist, etc……. I repect your beliefs. My Muslim husband has never beat me. He is so sweet to me and has shown me how beautiful I am on the inside. He is very protective abd I love this for I am very sensitive. Please do not judge people by majority or minority. Take each individual as just that. I wish you to all find peace. STOP fighting please and just love each other faults and all. 

  42. http://www.islaminindia.org/uncategorized/why-did
    It is the accepted tradition that Angel Gabriel communicated the Quran to Muhammad in pure Arabic from God. In other words, God sent down the Quran to Muhammad through Angel Gabriel in Arabic. Actually, when Muhammad first got such an experience, he thought he had been possessed by a ghost and thought of committing suicide! But it was his wife Khadija who convinced him that He had been chosen as a Prophet. This is another clear proof that Islam is not from God. Had God sent an Angel, say Gabriel, to Muhammad to convey to Quran, he would have made Gabriel convey this clearly to Muhammad instead of making Muhammad think that he had been possessed by a demon and driving him to the point of suicide. The very fact that his wife told him that He had become a Prophet and Muhammad himself thought of suicide shows that Muhammad was not chosen as God’s Prophet.

    But let us assume that Angel Gabriel did indeed come to Muhammad, sent down by God to reveal the Quran. The ordinary Meccans, Muhammad’s own contemporaries, were almost unanimous in dismissing his revelations as anything but divine. Barring a handful of followers, not more than 70 or 80 people in 12 years of preaching from AD 610 to AD 622, everyone dismissed Muhammad’s claims of receiving Divine messages. Here, if Angel Gabriel really did visit Muhammad for these 12 years, and he and God saw that people are ridiculing Muhammad and dismissing his claims, Gabriel could have easily shown Himself to all Meccans and revealed the Quran to all of them. Even one paranormal act could have been sufficient in showing that Muhammad received Divine messages from God. But Angel Gabriel showed Himself only to Muhammad and Muhammad dictated the Quran! This clearly shows that there was absolutely nothing done which could not have been done by humans. There is of course, no proof at all that Angel Gabriel visited Muhammad carrying God’s messages. It could be that Muhammad genuinely believed what he felt. But if Gabriel went all the way from God to Muhammad and back, he could easily have revealed the Quran to everyone, instead of Muhammad.

    As we have seen Swami Dayananda Saraswati observe, the author of the Quran was not God, it was not even any learned or intelligent person. It was someone with a very limited knowledge and understanding. One who thought that God resides at a particular location in this Universe and is not Omnipresent, that God needs Angels to carry his messages.

  43. Ms narcole1919721, since you dislike such 'slandering' of your lecherous prophet, maybe you'll like to help your pedophile prophet cleared the air here by using some polite words from your conscience to explain clearly why did he want to insert his old linga into that little girl's yoni then? if you have a 9 years old daughter, will you let Muhammad poke her?

  44. Do you think slandering another prophet with impolite words is right? 

  45. Ms Kameela, do you think that it's right for a 53 years old prophet to poke a 9 years old little muslima's vagina? How to respect and find peace with such a sickening and shameful prophet?

  46. @Kameela
    You need not be so sad ,it would be a needless exercise .No one hate Muslims that is for sure ,but Islam is horrible, especially that mentally sick psychopath Mohammed.Do you denied his marriage to that little girl Ayesha,if no then how could you say this site is full of hate .Ali Sina only highlights the contents of Quran ,sira,hadhits etc.If there is no substance in Sina's claim ,then you or any other  Muslim can come up with authentic documents refuting Sina's claims. This site is based on democratic set up and values ,so everyone has equal right   for debate/discussion/dialogue's.It is very nice of you ,that you respect others belief ,but does   your holy book   preaches so ,if yes ,then either you are not Muslim or you have not read your holly book  or you will be guilty of blasphemy.
    Your holly book say the earth is flat ,it is the center of the universe ,sun circumscribing the earth ,moon is above the stars,sun sets in the muddy water do you belief all these things ,if not ,then Allah is false (he is not having the basic knowledge of his creation). Islam say,s God is formless ,then who stay's in Mecca and why Muslims go there . If Islam says  idolatry is blasphemy ,then what that black stone is  doing in Kaba . Why Muslims are terrorizing the world ,your people killed 5000 innocent people (9/11) .Your people destroyed sacred symbols of others belief (Bamiyan Buddha's ).Your people blast bombs at other peoples sacred places (Bomb blast in  Mahabhodhi Temple) .Every infidels living in their respective  countries  are peaceful and making progress except the countries inhabited by Muslims .Lastly the Muslim man after his death will have 72 virgin woman and  20 boys (display of sick mentality of mad Mohammed) in heaven ; what about a religious Muslim woman ?what she will get after her death ?,in heaven .Islam say 99% woman will go to hell,then what logic operates behind  claiming " PROUD TO BE A MUSLIM'?. Don't believe any thing  blindly ,this is 21st century , believe your mind not your heart. 

  47. @ Kameela
    Madam, i am happy to engage you for discussion on lot of words you have spelled out here, in continuation of this thread ,i beg you for little time to response/reply on my behalf,thanks a lot.

  48. I am sad to read these posts abd the story. Not all Muslims are bad. Like Christianity or any other religion we have people who do not do right. This page is full of hate from the woman who wrote it abd the people who respond with hate. Shame on all of you. I am Muslum and proud. I am everything sweet and kind and gentle.

  49. The problem is you people need to know how to deal with unseen attacks your soul go thru , ISLAM is a solution to humanity just because of bad experience we suffered in Muslims hand that doesnt make us blame Islam or see wrong in Islam , the only power who shows us dreams and false signs is the power of devil , taking you away from the path of monotheism to a path of saints and ascribing partner to your maker . Fight your devil so GOD IS JUST , he showed you Islam but you have to fight to stay firm to be a muslim its not easy to  go to paradise as Christian think.

  50. HI  Assalamu alaikum,  this is best wors of Islam May peace be upon u. Rather thangood morning etc..first u must know tht is Islam means,who is jesus pbuh. Was he god or messenger of God ,u watch deen show , and watch some americans how they convert to islam ,  only the way for paradisr whixh accepted by God is Islam it means submitting will to god

  51. I am Catholic, my wife is too. We raised our children in our religion. They do not practice much today. If my daughter was in your shoes, I would do everything I could to help her out. I do not believe in the concept of, "you made your bed now you have to lie in it." We all make mistakes. We are human. Jesus taught us in the Our Father, "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those against us." That means if we are not willing to forgive those who have sinned against us, to forgive those who hurt us, or forgive those who have made mistakes, then we cannot expect God to forgive us." I think you should seem help from the closest Catholic. Butch that you feel most comfortable with. Regardless of how we were all raised, not Ll priests and churches are the same. Some are not as welcoming or forgiving as others.

  52. This sounds more to me like the problem with your relationship isn't necessarily that he's Muslim and you're not. The problem seems to be that you both went in to the relationship thinking that you could change the other person. You weren't honest with yourself from the beginning. 

    I'm currently dating a Muslim Man, (i have been dating him for a year now). He's the most wonderful man I've ever met. I'm sorry that these things have happened to you, but i feel compelled to tell you and everyone out there that, really, this isn't normal. I feel like, on the Internet, we only see the really incredibly bad stories, because they are the ones that are dramatic enough to get everyone's attention. 

    I've recently started a blog about dating a Muslim man, and it takes a slightly different tone than the one in the letter. I think being in a relationship with someone from a completely different background requires a lot of understanding and compassion, but I really think it is not a lost cause. 

    My blog is 
    http://travelinglightwithlove.blogspot.com/

    But, i think you should consider divorcing your husband. No woman deserves to be treated like they don't matter, especially by their husbands. 

    I really do wish you all of the luck in the world 

  53. 1. Why would a God need to sacrifice himself? He can simply forgive others?

    2. According to Bible, when he was to be crucified, his last words were something like:
    "My father, why have you forsaken me"

    3. The Bible you hold true is not the Bible – which early Christians had . . . due to canonization – the books which early Christians held to be true are no longer part of it. So what Bible?

  54. Start reading the Holy Bible and get to know the real Jesus Christ, the One and Only True God who came to earth adn took on the form of a man to sacrafice Himself for our trangressions so that we have eternal life. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life". Nothing is too difficult for the Lord God Creator of Heaven and Earth. He can remove the veil off your husband's eyes and open is heart to know the real Jesus Christ. Just pray to the Lord Jesus and ask for God to reveal Himself to both you and your husband. Remember there is no other who can intercede for our sins but Jesus alone who bore the sins of the world.No "saints", no statutes and not Mary (Miriam) can be prayed to only the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

  55. *religion.

  56. You sound like a fruit, this poor woman is suffering from domestic violence and you defend her attacker. I hope C leaves her guy, grow up Zohaib the world doesn't revolve around religio.

  57. To the girl named C,

    I would like to tell you I am a muslim guy. All the posts that have been written against Islam are purely invalid. ISLAM never ever talks about partiality. It is straightforward and to the point. All men and women are equal. Imagine, someone insulting another religion is like throwing stones on a glass house knowing that their house is itself made of glass. 
    Coming to your problem, remember one thing that NO HUMAN is perfect whether be a Muslim, Christian, Jews or from any other faith. If one tries to read the QURAN in Islam, he/she would fine all the answers to his/her doubts. If women were not considered equal to men then why would QURAN dedicate an ENTIRE CHAPTER on the importance of WOMEN? If people did read QURAN, it talks about CHRISTIANITY (LIFE OF JESUS and the VIRGIN MARY), JEWS ( LIFE OF MOSES) and HINDUS (WORSHIPPING IDOLS). 
    ISLAM was/is/will NEVER be wrong. Yes, MUSLIMS can/will be wrong but don't judge the FAITH by the people. READ THE QURAN to find out the truth. The reason why many MUSLIM MEN/WOMEN fall for the WESTERN CULTURE is because of LUST. They don't practice their faith and they just USE the name of JESUS to escape the faith. All I have heard from the WESTERNERS is that JESUS DIED for our SINS. really? People, in today's world, commit adultery and do stuff which is not right on a day to day basis and talk about JESUS dying for YOUR SINS? Example: Imagine, one driving over the speed limit and when pulled over by a cop would say, I am sorry, please send the TICKET to JESUS coz he DIED for my sin(speeding). That's crazy. 
    Does anyone know that Moses talked about the coming of Jesus in the TORAH and Jesus talked about the coming of Mohammad?
    Well, people who are against ISLAM/MUSLIMS should take a break from their brainwashed minds and go to a good ISLAMIC CENTER and get a copy of the QURAN and not from any ISLAM HATER who carries a WRONG COPY OF THE QURAN to misguide the ALREADY MISGUIDED people. 
    I, humbly, request all the NON_MUSLIMS and those who are inflicting pain because of their MUSLIM SPOUSES to sit back, go to a proper ISLAMIC CENTER where they have seperate sections for MEN and WOMEN to increase their knowledge about ISLAM to get all the right answers to their questions. One such sight I know where NON-MUSLIMS whole heartedly revert to ISLAM is called "whyislam.org". Go there and talk to the scholar who can give you a free copy of the translation of the QURAN and clarify almost all your doubts. 

    PEACE BE TO ALL ESPECIALLY TO THOSE WHO HATE THE FAITH & TO THOSE WHO ARE SKEPTICAL of the FAITH.

  58. Grow up, Maria!

  59. @Maria,

    Are you perfect? You who call a person who explained her ordeals a “whore”? Is this the sign of perfection? You are so ready to throw the first stone, but are you yourself sin free? Yes Islam is evil. The best proof that Islam is evil is you. Look what Islam has done to you. It has made you a vile person. Ye shall recognize them by their fruits, and if you and your fellow Muslims are the fruits of Islam then it is clear that Islam is a rotten tree.

  60. All I can say that you have never been true to your religion in the first place you deceived your parents you lied you went against your own roman Catholic religion so before you start pointing the finger at islam and muslims take a good look at your self because your far from perfect.  This is not in reply to nib head islamaphobe vijay but in answer to the whore who wrote this pathetic blog

  61. This is exactly what I expected to find out after reading the title The World is Sound. Thanks for informative article

  65. Ali Sina offers $50,000 reward to anyone who can prove him wrong.

    So funny and coward. …

    If he really speaks the truth and ready to maintain the truth, why only offer $50.000? why not $5000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000? If he's true, he will never be wrong.

    this means that he's afraid that if he is really right or not. He's still doubt about his simple logic
    And this means that his truth can only be valued $50.000.

    I offer you $50000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000, if you can prove that 2 x 2 is not 4.

    Anyone?

  66. @Slave of Prophete
    You are already lost, don't bark again. No one ( a sane man/woman think of marring a Muslim even in her/his dream )think to become Muslim take note of this . You are fit to become slave to this pedophile Mohammed and not to the author of your own destiny . Don't let your children ,follow you ,let them choose their own life. This is the era of science,allow your son/daughter to hug science/modernity not this thug ,pedophile , road robber ,Taliban ,MAD MOHAMMED.

    @Abby
    Marriage between Muslim man and non-Muslim woman is not valid in Islam. As per Islam woman will not be treated as if she is non-Muslim. To marry with Muslim man she need to change / convert into Islam.

  68. Dear C and Abby, it's time to dump all these braindead zombies into the rubbish bin and start life afresh. Can't you gals see that there are so many faithfreedom fish swimming in the deep blue sea beneath and there are also so many faithfreedom birds flying in the deep blue sky above? So, don't lose heart and be wise the next time round. Wish you gals all the very best in finding a good fish or bird. :*

  69. I started a relationship with a Muslim gentleman. We lived together for one year.Then a member of his family came to visit him, and he changed overnight. I know how C girl feels. I can not say anything but good things about this man that I loved so much. However, at the end of our relationship, he revealed himself not just changing his attitude towards me during the last days, he was not able to confront me either. He tried to makes me feel I am the one who failed. I did not allow to myself in believe on a cheap statement. Actions are powerful over words. He showed me how weak he really was. I need a man in my life not a puppet. I gave him my love and commitment and I will never regret about that. Bur I learned. It was a lesson for me. Dear C. forget about this man. Love yourself, do not keep any hopes. Don't ask yourself if this man was bad or good, don't ask yourself if he loved you or not. Just walk away from him. Let his friend or family to look for a wife for him. You are lucky to decide who wants or not in your life. You deserve be happy.

  70. "There are good and bad in all religions and all walks of life."

    OK. But believing so and stopping there does not answer the questions: "What influence does Islam have?" "On what" ? And: Is it good, bad or neutral to that?

    Islam exists and is very widespread, and it is highly unsatisfactory, even for Muslims, to stop thinking and pretend it has NO influence, is strictly neutral. If it has no influence it has no good influence either. And then Islam should ALSO NOT BE JUDGED by all those Muslims who do good deeds and live good moral lives.

    I think Islam is in many ways contradicting modern democratic laws, customs, values and so it has very bad influence on them and those people who adhere to them and that Islam is not neutral at all.

    And terroristic and criminal Muslims very often openly and clearly adhere to Islamic laws, customs and values that are divine according to them en that are in direct opposition to democratic modern ones. And they are often shown to want to practice and promote the Islamic ones and they despise the democratic modern ones.

    I think that the Islam that is interpreted like that, that that is a major factor for such malevolence towards the West (democratic modern societies).

    And Muslims should at least admit that huge numbers of them want different laws, customs, values and societies than those of the West. And that that motivates a lot of them to do crimes in Western eyes. Muslims should not deny or ignore it all the time, when their own fellow Muslims so often confirm the suspicions of the democratic, modern people.

  71. Perfectly captured,Chuck. They prey on the innocent and hapless several times a day.

  72. @I-HATE-ISLAM,
    //They pray five times a day/
    Didn't you mean "They prey five times a day" ? :-)

  73. @ Ex-Christian
    May 10, Yet another Muslim sex slavery gang were jailed in UK for prostituting teenage British girls.

    Are you still high on ganja/opium to have such "beautiful dreams" ?

  74. You really are pathetic. By saying that those who commit these crimes are "so-called Christians", you have admitted that they, in fact, have gone against the teachings of the Christian faith which calls for loving one's neighbor as one's self and a display of an endless capacity to forgive. Zakat has very ably responded to your misguided notion. I have very little to add. But be honest enough to look at the statistics and admit that when it comes to violence and atrocities all those perpetrated by non muhammadans come into an insignificant fraction of what muhammadans do with all pleasure. Since 9/11, there have been about 21,000 acts of violence by muhammadans. How many are attributed to all others combined? In 2010 a list of about 146 terrorist groups was published. 92 are muhammadan and only 10 are Christian with Marxists accounting for 15. How do the figures compare? This year alone more than 2000 people have been mutilated in Pakistan by muhammadan terrorist groups. Which other group has killed even one person there? About 98% of civilians killed in Iraq have died at the hands of muslims. Where have non muslims done that? In my country, Nigeria, boko haram has embarked on a frenzied orgy of indiscriminate extermination of whole populations, particularly Christians. There has been no Christian response to all of that insanity. Muhammadans are responsible for devastating wars in Somalia, Sudan, Mali etc. Some of these wars have gone on for decades now. Can you point to a Christian equivalent of these 'holy' wars?
    There is always a rush by muhammadans to use Timothy McVeigh and Anders Breivik as examples of 'christian terrorists'. But they find it convenient to forget that McVeigh claimed to be an agnostic who believed in a God. No Christian believes in 'a god'. Every Christian believes in one God; not many. Breivik says he is a 'cultural christian' who prayed once in his life.
    Do muhammadan terrorists claim to be agnostic or cultural muslims? They pray five times a day, perform the hajj and observe other islamic rituals. These terrorists quote the quran to justify their actions and refer to the examples of Muhammad as the basis of what they do. Those who are familiar with the quran and the sunna have no problems with the actions of the terrorists as they cannot deny those claims. Only hypocrites pretend to condemn them while the nitwits, who are in the minutest minority, argue that the terrorists are not muhammadans. Ex-Christian, now New-Terrorist, choose which of these groups you belong to.You should find it intriguing that an ex-muhammadan eschews violence; whereas a convert to islam embraces it. Unarguably, the difference, as we say in my country, is quite clear.

  75. The major difference that, the crime perpetrated by infidels and that by Muslim is that ,in case of christian,s ,Jews,Hindus,Buddhist etc,their holy book do not say to commit such crimes or sanctify crime against infidels or lure with 72 damsels in paradise for violence against non-believers.Actually those who commit crime of killing,rape and other kind of violence in the name of Allah and Mohammed are true Muslims as per the diktat of Quaran.For that matter you are considered as an apostate ,if you fail to follow Zokhar and Tamerlane (the duo of Boston Bombings).

  76. Some who profess to be Muslim kill, rape, exhibit acts of violence etc – all actions which are haram. These individuals are not representative of Islam and unfortunately paint a bad picture for Islam. But Islam should not be judged by the deeds of these so-called Muslims. True Islam is pure, honest and good.

    Many forget or refuse to acknowledge the crimes – murder, rape, terrorism, violence etc – committed on a daily basis by so-called Christians. The only difference is that they are never referred to as "Christian terrorists" or "Christian extremists" in the media. Same applies to the Jews, Hindus, atheists etc. This unfairness, this biased attitude, is a major factor for such malevolence towards the West.

    There are good and bad in all religions and all walks of life.

  77. Dear C.,
    I'm touched by your message, as I feel I can relate to your story in many ways.
    Honestly, from my own experience, religion is part of one's culture, and in the end quite mixed up with culture. Asking / Expecting someone to leave their religion / convert, is like asking someone to give up part of their identity, especially if they're born in that religious culture.
    The most important thing I'd like for you to remember is: There's no reason that any human being, including you, is less worthy of love and happiness than anyone else. Try to listen to you inner dialogue and how you treat yourself.
    If you're telling yourself anything less than, "you're a wonderful woman worthy of love, peace and happiness," then you're simply conditioned by false beliefs about who you really are.
    You have the power to chose the direction you take. You don't have to be stuck in depression; that's a choice you make.

    You know deep inside if this man is right for you or not. If there is doubt, just let him go, and I urge you to do so before you have children, because then it gets VERY complicated with different belief and value systems (again, talking from my own experience).
    He'll figure out things on his own, just as you'll do. Don't worry about him if you leave him, worry about your well-being.

    About islam, I'm not one to bash the spiritual faith, but I disapprove with the way some muslims conceive the message. Islam is a spiritual way of life, like every faith is meant to be. It's meant to teach us how to get closer to God. Unfortunately, like most religions, people use the religion as a way to have certainty and security in their lives, a sense of superiority and righteousness. All ego. And then they separate themselves from others, just because they have a different guru. Which is completely against the true aim of islam, meant to unite people.
    In fact, the aim of all spiritual teachings to to unite us all in our Creator's power I believe.
    Anyway, looking as Islam from that perspective, I have learned that it teaches a lot of wisdom for a peaceful life.
    Islam is not the problem; the ignorant and shallow people among the muslim population are the problem.

    To conclude C., if you want to have children, have them with someone you are sure will share the same values as you raising them.
    And again, most importantly, remember that no one has the power to make you less worthy than God truly made you to be. No one can take your power (unless you gave it away). There's absolutely no reason you should treat yourself with less love than you would treat anyone else you dearly love.
    Cultivate foremost your relationship with God, then with yourself, and only then can you truly love another….
    warm blessings, L

  78. Ali, you are quite right. That is why muhammadan countries hardly contribute to disaster relief efforts particularly when it involves non muhammadan communities.

  79. FACT There a Over TWELVE MILLION AFRICAN SLAVES in Saudi Arabia,Home of ISLAM, Right NOW, Keeping Middle Class SAUDI Homes Running Smoothly at the end of a BULL WHIP.
    ISLAM is LIES,Taquiyya and Kitman, Lust, Racism, Thievery, Occupation,Apartheid,Murder,FILTH!!!!!!

  80. There are 493 lines in the Queran Against Non-Muslims and
    NOT ONE line recommending kindness, cooperation or respect toward Non-Muslims.

  81. @"-AND IT IS RISING FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL MANKIND". You have lost sight of the fact that in islam the only humanity known is 'the house of islam'. Any body outside of this belongs to the house of war who is hated as the vilest creature in the sight of allah and is to be plundered until he /she confesses that there is no god but allah. The sort of good you are talking about is what took happened in Boston a few days back. You cannot refer to those young men as uneducated and not being properly exposed to modernity. All the terrorists who took part in the New York,Madrid and London bombings did not come from the back water of the society. They were well educated with the requisite exposure. The problem is not the perpetrators for they can be reformed. The problem is a cruel creed that launches them on the path of evil.
    You talk about the so-called muslim contributions in Spain. What happened to the civilization which existed there before the muhammadan invasion? When the muslims entered Egypt in 640, the richest library in the then world, with between 400,000 and 700,000 rare manuscripts, was burnt because Umar said that they would either be against islam and blasphemous or for islam and superfluous. That act of vandalism robbed the world of the rich history and scientific achievements of the ancient period.
    It was not every part of the world that was deficient in learning as the Arabian desert of the 7th century.
    It is dead wrong to consider the muslim world as being poor with the vast resources at its disposal. The problem is with the misplacement of priorities. While others think of making the world a better place for all of mankind, the muslims focus on destruction except it coincides with their values.
    Talking about this site being against islam, I think that the mere fact that your comment has been posted here disproves that allegation. Every body is allowed to air his/her views. I have had the most difficult time posting a comment on an islamic website because I expressed contrary views. Intolerance is in the DNA of mhammadanism and muhammadans.

  82. "This thread is all about hatred against Muslims. Let me tell you some history. Muslims have their ups and downs, and they have been down in the last few centuries. now they are poor and destitute, corrupt and far away from the teaching of their own beautiful religion. Some Muslims have made the image of Islam even worse by burning churches and by doing many other useless and dangerous deeds. They are doing this because they are uneducated. They are not properly exposed to modernity.

    But to my relief, I have seen Christian writings dated many hundred years ago admiring the lifestyles of Muslims in Spain and instructed Christian young people to emulate them. To my happiness as well, I have seen an increasing number of young dedicated Muslims who are dedicating their lives to the good of others regardless of their religious affiliation. These young people are the hope of Muslims. It is quite reassuring to me that these young people will be the ones who save the world while upholding the tenets of Islam and remain loyal to their Islamic identity. Let me tell everybody in this forum that Islam is rising, and it is rising for the benefit of all mankind."

    Your religion isn't good to women. I am not a fan of it, because it doesn't support my rights. Islam needs to learn tolerance for other religions too.

  83. Please get yourself out of this marriage. You need a clean break. I know this hurts you, but please listen to us. Most people posting do it because we care about you. Please move on, find a nice Christian man that supports your dreams. In Islam the mans dreams comes first. If this man cared about you he would have defended you from his family or friends. This man isn't worthy of you, find one that is.

    When it comes to kids, choose their father is the biggest decision you will make. If you have kids your problems will get bigger. He wants his kids to grow up muslims, you want christian kids. If the kids are girls then the problems will be worst. Islam isn't great to girls. Also, if he is unhappy he can just steal your kids and bring them to his home country. This happens a lot.

    NEVER LET GO OF YOUR DREAMS!! If you want to be a doctor don't let a man or husband get in the way. Please never sacrifice them.

  84. my husband is muslim and i'am american … i live in tunisia for a year. i'am home sick but i have problems with their culture and all. if you are marry to a muslim husband and just want to talk .. i would like that. i have facebook. my name is Betty Mokni … you also can fine me under Betty Biederstadt. it would be nice to fine other people that understands what i'm going through…. i just get lonely and it would be nice to find a friend i can talk too.

  85. Moslem man : You have a lot of work to do in ISLAMIC countries and with Moslems/ Moslemahs. Please go and change the regimes. Make them humanistic , with values of kindness, compassion, freedom, liberty, democracy, All religions as equal, equal justice to all, peace ,love , . First , see that Theocratic , fascist regimes of ISLAM are dismantled and in their place, modern , peace,freedom loving, equality promoting. democracy as the basis , equal laws for all, equal rights to all citizens . I will trust you when you fight for all these human values, human rights. There is no idea of minority in ISLAM. Just kill or subjugate and make slaves of all unbelievers and as 4th class citizens. You know in ISLAMIC countries, unbelievers are treated as slaves and lives in fear. Abolish all Huddooed ISLAMIC barbarism. DOnt lie and dont be dishonest and dont deceive. SHow us your action. and the result in ISLAMIC countries.

  86. Moslem man : Let me tell you are a savvy TAQIYYA merchant . TAQIYYA, MUBAHILA, DAR UL ISLAM , DAR UL Harb , Fatwas, JIHADS< apostacy, DHIMMI < Mushriks,murtads – just to mention only few ideas of ISLAM/Moslems are uniquely evil, cruel,wicked. You are not honest and you are without any conscience. You are without any truth,facts. Everybody condemns the few violent instances in US and they are declared as criminals and law applies to them. No sympathy. In the case of ISLAM , it is all ( criminality,cruelty,wickedness, ill will, jealousy) are all instigated by ISLAMIC teachings,MO, ALLAH. No human being will be a good person if he/she accepts ISLAM and practices ISLAM . Dont mislead gullible people with your falsehoods. Look at any ISLAMIC country, any ISLAMIC regime, and ISLAMIC culture, ISLAMIC society. How and what do they treat unbelievers ? Why to declare a country as ISLAMIC ? to persecute, to torment and kill unbelievers, using ISLAMIC sharia, to terrorize nonmoslems. ALL this cruelty, all this savagery, all this killings, all the discriminations IN ISLAM gives you peace !!!! You are happy !!! This is because you are a MOSLEM follower of that monster MO . I tell you, you will not have a peaceful end . ISLAM is false and Mo was a demon. What aspect of Mo s actions, character do you want to follow ? Can you have good conscience if you follow MO and his sunna and , QQUURRAAN >

  87. Oye Moslem man : First go and read SIRA< HADIS and QQURRAAN . Know the ISLAMIC history. Know the ISLAMIC tenets. ISLAM is a copied version of christianity ,judaism, and preislamic ARABIAN folk lore. ISLAM is full of hatred, ill will, animosity and violence against unbelievers. There is nothing original in ISLAM. No good human being should be a moslem. Tell us what aspect of Mo, you like and follow. You are not talking or discussing that waht is written IN QQUURRAN, HADIS or SIRA. You are telling your own TAQIYYA application. ISLAM is based on discrimination and intolerance, ill will against all nonmoslems. You know that. Only in ISLAM, If you chose to leave ISLAM , you are killed !!! In ISLAM slavery is practiced . ISLAM is fear of grave and dread of hell fire !!! ISLAMIC God and Mo are real monsters. vengeful, cruel and wicked !! You are ignorant of other faiths.

  88. Your world renowned ISLAMIC scholars are BOZOs and buffoons !!
    Do you call them as scholars ? Whatever they say is scholar to You !!!
    First of all , all this is a farce . Dont you understand any thing in QQUURRAAN, which says everything is clear, understandable and easy !!! What is there in QQUURRAAN or SIRA or HADIS that you dont understand ? It is all confused , incoherent mumbo- jumbo, filled with cruelty, evil, wicked, perverse ,poisonous tenets of ISLAM .

    "Of course there are some good people (my friends & neighbours) but I considered that they are "bad" muslims."

    - –

    You use phrases that other people claiming to be ex-Muslim use.

    Hence, you are probabaly one person – posting under different names. And very likely NEVER been a Muslim – at all.

  91. Yes. It is. Because according to the quran, drinking wine in heaven does not make u drunk. But that's what muslims believe ofcoz. U people r just gonna come up with something to contradict me after this. Well, not a surprise when you deal with people who dont believe n refuse to. May god gives hidayah to all of you.amin.

  92. Dear C,
    I was born & raised in muslim country. You may say that I've been live in Muslim country all my life & how I envy you & other who lives in western country. I know very well how muslim are. Trust me. Of course there are some good people (my friends & neighbours) but I considered that they are "bad" muslims. Good people are "bad" muslims & Bad people are "good" muslims. I hope you get the meaning. Sorry for my poor english. I can't describe it with my short skill of english writing. Tell your friend, spread the words. You can also see how sick they are from the threads they've posted here in this blog. What thewho said was right. KICK HIM OUT OF STATES! and try to stop islamisation on you country.

    Best wishes,

  93. Good, keep it that way and wait till you meet Mohammad in hell

  96. Hmmm that perhaps explain why the GDP of 52 Muslims countries is only equal to that of Spain hahahaha

  97. If Muslims are clever, perhaps you could explain why 1% of the population in Indonesia (Chinese)
    control 90% of the economy?

  98. Just because Muslims, Allah and Mohammad are the best in deceiving people, does not mean Dr Ali Sina will do the same.

    Wake up you dimwitted Muslims

  99. There is no such thing as intelligent Muslims.
    You of all people should know that

  100. You are right!, but how this can happen in my country Indonesia or Egypt?, which we as non moslem also natives in these countries. Anyway, we non moslem Indonesians now fight back! Too long this cursed belief has made home in my country. As Indonesia although the majority is labeled as moslem, but most of them still hold the golden rules as human being and traditional values. Now some of them have started to change into another being, Indonesian moslem becoming Arab moslem. Thanks to internet and your website, we do have a solid weapon to fight back!

  101. my god! is this what is truly said in quran by the prophet?
    how sick!!

  102. hahaah what a piece of shitt acting like a dirty dog who has his tail wounded :)

  103. Dear Ms C,
    The rational course of events would be to file for divorce.
    If med school is your cup of tea, go for it. The quantum of work in med school is great enough to keep your mind off all other things.
    The beauty of modern professional education is that the travails we undergo while at it mold our personalities and we emerge mentally stronger. Think of this experience of yours as bitter medicine, and move on in life.
    This is a mortal would. It will heal with time. If you continue to lose your self-respect by being with this man, there will come a time when you will not be able to look at yourself in the mirror. Each one of us, married or not, ultimately has to make peace with oneself, and that is the final chapter in our lives. Make a wise decision and ensure that that peace is guaranteed to you.
    I am a doctor, happily married, and still pursing my education. I have been blessed with a wonderful child. and the innocence and promise of hope that I see in him makes my heart bleed with joy.
    This happiness is due to everyone. If you cannot see this future with this man, please leave him at once. Make a career, become mentally strong, and I am sure you will find enough sane men in this world to appreciate a mistake and overlook it.
    Regards,
    Dr M

  104. Terrible :(.. .I can't understand that habit of marrying cousins. It is forbidden in several US states. Why didn't your parents arrange someone else for you? Marrying a cousin has its risks, and it gets worse as generation after generation marries among cousins. Babies have a high chance of being born with birth defects. My friend has a serious visual impairment, and so do 3 of his 4 siblings.

  105. I was forced to marry my first cousin (I'm 21 and she's 15) this past summer in Bangladesh. I couldn't say no because honor killings have happened before in my extended family and Bangladeshi marriage law says that if you refuse to get married, your parents can exchange marriage vows on your behalf and you are still legally bound.

    I can understand what you're going through right now, Calabrian girl. It's extremely difficult to pull yourself out of abusive relationships. I can't make myself break away from my parents at all, and now I have a 15 year old girl who thinks having sex is a crime against nature and constantly belittles me for not blindly following her faith, and insists that if I don't listen to her I will burn in hell for all eternity.

  107. Muslims are not stupid but merely cowards. This is why they are fated to lose the War of Civilizations. On the battlefield they prefer to run or surrender. This is what makes them different from all other people on earth. And they prefer to commit suicide rather than face life and work hard to improve their miserable lot. All in all a completely retarded sub-humans that never contributed with anything, except lies, to the progress of humanity. In one word, GARBAGE.

  108. I am just reporting this thing. Is it OK to have wine in Paradise ? What wine is which is wine of Paradise ?

  109. So whose side r u on? The rapists? 'Rapists were drunk' – does that mean they had a right to do that to the girl and not be punish for it? Btw this is also a classic example of why allah swt forbids alcohol.

  110. Just for ur info… smoking cigarettes have been proven to be harmful and so many fatwas have made it haram in islam.. i feel sorry that u jad to end up with the group of arabs who thinks only best of themselves. I am a devoted muslim and personally i dont like that side of these people too. It is not at all what the quran and prophet muhammad taught his ummah. However i should remind u that not al muslims are arabs and not all arabs are muslims. What u r going through here is a social stigma which doesnt happen in my country. Ur husband is clearly obsessed with this man whom i would call a hypocrite. His actions do not portray those of a real muslim man. But in the end religion is a choice. U can act like u believe in islam infront of ur husband but god knows that u had never believed in it and hence if u had never believed in it then u were never a muslim. Stop blaming islam because u had gotten married to the wrong man. There are bad men all over the world and they need not be muslim to be bad.

  111. Dear Mus Lim man. I am incline to believe that you have a good humble heart and you are making every effort, and through your efforts you would to see the change in thoughts and ideas of kafirs in their pre conceived ideas of Is lam. It is a noble notion on your part and your gestures on “the good of Is Lam” that which you do on behalf of your religious beliefs is to make kafirs understand the {or, your} religion.
    Here’s what, you don’t really know much, about the real and actual actions and thoughts, of the religious {and i don’t mean not political} IS Lam leaders of 2 South East Asian nations. I say this, to show not weakness of the average Mus Lims in my region but their enthusiastic embracement of new Fat U Wa laws set overnight by their religious leaders on the wishing of Merry or Happy Xmas to Christians by Mus Lims.
    Allow me to digress a moment before I point out to you the fearful feelings of kafirs in these 2 nations, concerning Mus Lims wishing Christians “Merry Christmas” during or around the Christmas period.
    For once, you almost had a “Gentile”” heart and soul or you were trying to portrait a Christian life when you made this statement, listed below:
    “The Prophet said that Muslims should be good to their neighbors. I have a Christian neighbor, and a few days ago I wished him a happy christmas. I hope you agree with me that wishing a merry christmas to a Christian neighbor is a good thing to do. Am I obeying or disobeying the Prophet?
    Mr.J Stillwaters, is a scholar and a gentleman in all his writings to you and I am hoping to emulate his gentleness, sadly, I am not a Christian, as he is, and I as a Kafir, I’m licensed to be rude to all Mus Lims over the overnight laws set in motions by the learned Is lamic leaders over wishing humans on 24th or the 25th of December- Merry Christmas as Haram.
    Mr M.Man, you don’t get to choose to override one or two sets of your messenger’s laws “willy nilly” and proclaim to be a gentle and a good Mus Lim. Allow me to confirm your good deed action When you DID that wishing statement to your Christian neighbour, you automatically become me, you became a kafir just like me. This according to the Fat U Wa issued in our country by the elected leaders and guardians of Is lam.
    I am positive you are a learned a wise person. I “think” you and most of MO’s believers, secretly wish they were Christians or someone else when you read and see the atrocity committed by the ravage mis guide Mus Lims in your country and elsewhere on this God’s green earth. Please note we don’t take over embassies or burnt public properties or go on a rampage of destructions over a drawing or burning of a nonsensical book, heck we prefer to go about our ways and laugh it off in a bar or go gambling or visit whore houses or play chess or go swimming in our tight fitting shorts and tiny bikinis and we are not even Europeans for God Sake, we are fricking Asians. Lol!

  112. I am reminded of a short american comedian with a "puffed up funny face, I reckon he was only popular for his one "liners". I could be wrong, but i think he was named or called dangerfield.

    had absolutely no substances what so ever. He was boring and ugly too.

  113. Dear Sanatan.

    Thank you for your eye opening article.

    I must say { like the lyrics in the song} I can see clearly now.

    Your article is simple yet true. Poor, poor poor Mother Teressa, whom the whole paid tributes for her deeds is not reconized simply because she choose Christ as her Saviour and devoted her entire life serving humans. I think {no, wait, I don't think, instead, I rather believe in the GOD of Mother Teressa and hope to be accepted by her GOD THEN to blindly believe in some idiot whose deeds is war mongering in some god forsaken desert and whose "Ju-ba' was constantly stained with fresh and dried up sperm.

    I cannot see the logic in believing some mis guided mad person who is lambasted through a stupid idiotic low grade difficult to comprehend {unless you're an idiotic camel raiding towel wearing lunatic of a personality. Phew!

    Bo lo! Kab ker re ga Raj, Khalsa?

  114. Young Christian told to emulate the lifestyles of those who ruled over them in Spain? I strongly doubt your statement is at all true.

    Its’ almost good to read your article yet it is written for the younger ignorant muslims to emulate the good deeds of humanity by the European man and woman. But I feel that the Christians Folks from America and most part of the European Christian generation deserve far better credit for all their hard work in building schools and shelters in many parts of the world. Most assuredly, these wonderful and loving souls deserve praise in my part of the world.
    I live in the far east Asia and I can tell all of you ignorant left wing "we are for you Palestine home state sympathizers " and young Americans and foot loose fancy free European, that you'll never ever come across a muslim charity here in my part of the world who will help non muslims in any disasters. In many ways, it is always so strange for me to see the politeness way in nature of European & American travelers in my country when they visit our ancient temples, knowing bloody well that they better not insult any muslims in any way. They’ve been forewarned in their guide books of their actions if they do not observe the basic decorum of muslims or their teachings.

    Yet, when they are safely back home in their countries, they support the demise of Israel. I constantly see them on my cable TV with their ply cards marching against any israelist military actions on Gaza. I'll never understand your liberal stands or your stands on Pro Middle Eastern Arabs views. I would rather donate any form of monetary funds to English D League any day then to support your blind cause for the settlement of the Palestine State. If the lot of you who are Pro Palestine and waging a political warfare for their settlement, my suggestion to you is to come out in great force and picket outside the embassies of SOW U DI to take their Palestine brethrens and have em settled in their HO LY land.

    After all we are constantly bombard on muslim TV how well these SOW U DI folks are and how generous to their cause of printing and sending free Q books to the HO LY warriors in my part of the world. SOW U Di are well known to most secret govt agencies as the main funders of HO LY warriors, {for the lazy ass people who find reading books difficult- don’t waste your time either watching the Hollywood movie “KINGDOM”} with the objective of regaining “the lost” supremacy during SU LAY MEN the great conquered this part of the world.

    My two cents worth of salt on the subject of Mus Man's article is that, he may be right in assuming that MO's devotees are on their rise in numbers across the world. But it means carp to all to assume that their rise in numbers is by any means for the betterment humankind. Its just absurd to reckon this notion when clearly all across the world the cause of most human misery is caused by the fanatical muslims. Slightest provocation on MO or his beaded face or burning of the their Q books and “wa la way” {as we say here in my country} the world’s on ablaze.

    Just, for once, I would like to witness on TV MO’s devils to be saints on the streets rioting against one of their own for throwing expensive shoes at a cowboy or against “ham as” for sending xmas fireworks to israel or against the” tell ill bans” for shooting a young person for advocating schooling in her back water village or against an acid splashing husband on his young wife in “bang a long desh” and for chopping the heads and limbs of Buddhist and Christians in “in do ne sia” or in southern Thailand. I’m quite assured that these will BE THE ONES WHO will be in the fore front of “loonies” burning this world JUST SO to upholding the tenets of Islam.

    I’m so glad that I’m old and will not see long into the future of tantamount sufferings should the tenets of IS LAM is fulfilled, because some lame ass European and American give up his and her fundamental right of his and her forefathers hard earned bill of freedom.

    Sat Sri Akal. {kab ke rega Klasha raj?}

  115. "-ALL WHAT MUSLIMS ARE ASKING YOU IS TO STAY IN YOUR BACK YARD IS IT HARD THING TO DO? So why is it hard for the muslim to stay in his own back yard? Why do I find him polluting every decent place in the world? If it is proper for the muslim to dish out violence to the non muslim he finds in muslimland, it is also proper to do the same to the vermin called muslim found in non muslim land. Muslims are occupying USA and other civilized countries. It is time a crusade was launched on them.

  116. AZZURI GIRL C, I concur with your parents that you heaped whatever has happened to you on yourself. It may have been out of sheer ignorance or the quest to try something exotic as muslim men are seen by western women. If your life is in pieces, quickly gather them up and move on to the next and profitable stage. The man has divorced you according to islam. Take the hint and get out of his way otherwise you may not even live to regret it. As a devout muslim killing you means nothing to him because he would be doing allah's will by ridding the world of one infidel. You may bank on American justice deterring or catching up with him. Do not deceive yourself into conceiving such thoughts for the man may evade the system. Even where he does not, what good would justice achieve if the harm has already been done? The greatest undoing of the civilized world is its total ignorance of islam and its scorch. Those who try to expose the danger inherent in this cult are branded with all kinds of derogatory names especially by pseudo intellectuals and journalists who have sold themselves for a pot of pottage. This is the time for you to accept reality and leave sentiments aside. STOP CRYING FOR IT BENEFITS YOU NOTHING. MOVE ON FOR YOUR FUTURE IS EVEN BRIGHTER NOW.

  117. Just got the news, first from anti Islamists Hindus and then reconfirm it from another neutral source. The most brutal rapist, who lead to the death of girl is named as Mohamad Afroz allies Raju. And due to his status of minor age, he will be not be prosecuted but will out soon after some reforms, due to Indian laws. If I am not mistaken, he lured that girl into bus calling her as elder sister. This guy is the sixth person. He was mentioned during the first time but identity was not disclosed for his being minor.

  118. ali sina may i ask you wt religon are you?you realy need to grow up and see the world clearly insted of spreading hater in the world!!!i am muslim but live in westresn country more then 10years i have your personal contect details and everything should i send you what i see how girl is treat here after drunkness and after little bit angerness but its not worthy to send you cos i am working on it been long time and there are too many other reasoneable sources to spread our peacefull message i recomend you something insted of doing this can you tell people first that who you are and what is your back ground and i think everybody should know your past too and i bet after knowing all this you would feel to sort yourself out first and then preach people your stories!!!by the way friend of mine from canda(shabir ally)going to upload your real face and real truth about you very soon and to be honest i just can not wait for that cos his information showed me what kind of shitt your are ::::)))))))

  119. Jesus died for us all, christians and Moslems.????

    [youtube uoLvAbMP2lY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoLvAbMP2lY youtube]

  120. you are funny sina and i must say you dont know the defination of GOD.
    you said why would GOD want to decive his creatures??GOD dont do this cos HE loves us 70times more then our mother and what is in your book???who are you??another prophicy claimer in christianity?or there may gona be another gospel(gospel of sina) i dont understand that why would a father killed his beloved innocent son for other people mistakes and if the mission is peace and love then why would someone innocent has to get killed for forgivness(if you know what i am talking about)and you are talking about ALLAH and PROPHETS attributes!!!insted of publishing books start to find out what is the defination of GOD.does GOD needs birth and death?

  121. hahah well said this is my first time i m on this page and was wondring wt kind of person he is and what he is trying to do and what exactly his mean is,of course i m mulim brought up in muslim socity and now spending life in westren country been long time but this person is talking about us and about the system of our socity which we dont know never seen neither heard but anyway everyone has rights to say whatever they want but SAHER i m totaly agree with u that the story on top is absolutly his style of writing and making stories and i didnt realize anywhere that it sounds or style of american english and to make myself more sure i start reading all his blogs and stories and it sounds and style same but anyway mr sina or whatever ur propper name is if you belive in jesus and think that the mission peace then you are not doing the right things you just spreading hater with your stories and lies and saying things you might never seen in your life or never heard about them so my recomendations is that you have nice blog and cleaver mind so better if you use it for peace and love because life has too many other things to do too.all the best.

  122. \”You have a responsibility unless he committs adultary ,the bible advises us to stay.\”

    And what if he beats her? No there is no reason to stay in an abusive relationship. I often say, if you are in an abusive relationship it is because you deserve it. Why? Because if your husband beats you the first time it is his fault but if beats you the second time it is your fault. There is no reason to stay in an abusive relationship. Unless one cannot leave for any reason there is no excuse to put up with a brute. You live once. Try to live it as happy as you can. If you are sitting in a chair with a sticking nail in it, will you not change your seat? If your shoes bother you will you not throw them away? You even pull your tooth and throw it away if it becomes infections and you can\’t rescue it.

    If you are a masochist and don\’t mind to be abused by your husband please do not prescribe it to others. Leave a man that beats you, whether Muslim or not. If he is going to change let someone else have him. You find someone that has done his changes.

    ————
    \”Unfortunately, speaking from experience ,you will have at times a very lonely marriage lacking the depth that those who share a belief in Christ share. But this is our cross to bear,\”

    No one has to carry any cross. We are created to enjoy life and be happy. When we are happy in a happy relationship we can raise happy and emotionally healthy children who will not be scared for the rest of their lives. When children grow up in unhappy families they form unhappy families of their own and the cycle will continue. If you enjoy suffering please keep it to yourself. My advise to other is to be happy and get out of circumstances that make them unhappy.

  123. My responce was erased,it was not filled with hate.Perhaps no one wants to hear that you should refer to the Bible and what it says about marriage with an unbeliever. I am also in a cross cultural and religous marriage. We live with our choices . Recognize that Christ loves our unbelieving husbands more than we do,go to Him for guidance.

  124. All marriages are difficult,esp. cross cultural with different religions. I speak from experience. However, as a Christian we have to ask Christ what is best and refer to the Bible. The bible specifically addressed the wives of unbelievers . We are reminded that we can have an impact in which the unbeliever would have an oppurtunity to know him. This is a lonely, hard mission in which you have already picked up the cross by marrying him. You have a responsibility unless he committs adultary ,the bible advises us to stay. If you can change so can he. Prayers,a change in you that he can see the truth can really make a differance. Remember ,the man you loved,remember that Christ also loves him more than you do. He can change but will not if your marriage is a war of culture. Unfortunately, speaking from experience ,you will have at times a very lonely marriage lacking the depth that those who share a belief in Christ share. But this is our cross to bear, Jesus died for us all, christians and Moslems. If you really believe than go to the Source of your belief for guidance.

  125. From your writings, it is clear you accept a muslim man can have up to 4 wives if he upholds the condition of being able to do justice "to each and everyone of them". However, in the 21st century, that is not the point. The point is a muslima has not been given the same right of having up to 4 spouses. THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG IN ISLAM. I am sure you can see the inequity of this 4-wives Quranic ruling!

    {Don't point out the oft-repeated reasoning of other muslims to me, namely if a woman had up to 4 husbands, the paternity of the child cannot be determined, it can be done using DNA methods — strange how Allah could not foresee or foretell this development of the 20th century! Also, don't tell me a woman with multiple husbands will become a prostitute. This would be true only of a muslim man with 4 wives and other "right hand possessions"(sex slaves) is termed a womaniser and male prostitute}

    I have provided one example alone, but I can draw your attention to at least 10 other iniquitous rules from the Quran for the muslim woman. These constitute discrimination against and oppression of the muslim woman in Islam.

  126. So how much good deeds you think you have delivered to humankind?? I came to the us as refugee and was granted an asylum visa simply bc good deeds aren't exist in islam. Back in 98 muslims raped, killed n robbed christians in indonesia, it was a hugeee riots, those muslims they burned houses, steal from stores, most got instantly rich from the stolen stuff and with the money they went to meccah to praise allah for making them rich by stealing become a haj and also to wash their hands from the sins they have done. Unfortunately indonesian government (which r 99.9% muslims) covered this fact by lying to the world that this wasnt a religionconflict. I was witnessing everything! How they raped n killed us christians while screaming allah huakbar! Allah huakbar! Rape the women, kill the men and the children! Allah huakbar!! So where is the good deed islam has delivered to humankind?? You even called me kafir. Is that good deed in your language?

  127. @zitouni… is boko haram fighting muslims? Let's move the battle arena to nigeria… is boko haram fighting muslims? No… are they taking slaves? Yes… are they raping them? Yes… Do they believe they are waging Jihad? Absolutey YES… as they have said in their beheading videos…

    By the way… I have never read about boko haram on an "anti-islam" site… I have only read about them from al-jazeera, Reuters, alarabia and other global news sources…

  128. Dear Joe, violence is not a norm in Islam, it is an exception. It is only applicable in war situations. You may want to read the entire surah al Taubah in order to obtain a fuller understanding of the context. You also may want to spare sometime to find opinions which support my statement.

    I disagree with my fellow Muslims regarding sending children to war or sending suicide bombers. However, I want to argue that these are not isolated cases and we have to look at them not only from religious perspective but also from political, sociological, psychological perspectives. I am sure you can appreciate that human beings are a complex entity, and they, including Muslims, deserve to be treated accordingly.

    To me terrorism is a desperate response of desperate people. You may still remember the case of Timothy McVeigh, who, when he was still a young man, bombed a city centter building in Oklahoma and killed almost 168 people. Just recently, Adam Lanza, a young man, shot his mother to death and killed 26 other people, the majority of whom were elementary school children. I don't know what kind of desperation these people were in since they came from better to do communities than the majority of Muslims, but there must be some sort of psychological problems somewhere in their lives. Otherwise how could they have the heart to kill so many innocent people, which defied any standard of sanity.

    I believe we need to launch an international scholarship program to investigate why these things happened. We always can start from a hypothesis saying that, in the case of Muslims, they happened because of Quran 9:5. And then we can develop other hypotheses which view the problems from the perspectives of sociology, psychology, politics, economic, history, etc. We Muslims are open for these studies.

  129. Dear C, a suggestion for you, leave this man, but PLEASE PLEASE dont just stop at locking your door from him, send him back to his country, KICK HIM OUT OF THE STATES! since you have only been married for 2 years his green card status is still CR (conditional resident) he could lose this status if you (as his sponsor) do not remove it. This is from the uscis web: effect of not filing: if this petition is not filed you (He) will automatically lose your (His) permanent resident status as for the second anniversary of the date which you (He) were granted conditional status. remember the anniversary is not the date of your marriage, but the date of when he first stepped into the US soil. so please do not file the petition to remove his CR status, he could still try to stay in the states by requesting a waiver, but i highly doubt the USCIS will grant it, why?i cant tell too much i dont want this information to be a loophole that will be used by unresponsible muslims who are using american citizens to get a permit to stay in the states (i know how they are i was born and lived in one of the largest muslim country) so back to his GC, yes fortunately if you dont remove it his GC will be terminated and he will be deported. dont let him stay in the US trust me….he will use another woman like u (i hope you get my point)

  131. @Muslim Man… If I can show you two or more clear, irrefutable examples where Muhammad ordered the slaughter of persons speaking against him (i.e. disagreeing with him)… will you change your name to Non-Muslim Man and renounce islam?

    Think about it, you've said that it is bad for people to slaughter other people for disagreeing with them. If muhammad and his companions practiced this reprehensible behavior, don't you think this is a good enough reason for you to abandon islam? Do you want to be the follower of a man who so insecure that he assassinated people who spoke against him? Do you want to be the follower of a man who obviously has lower moral principals than you do? If you do, you can clearly see why I say islam is madness.

    Let me know when you are ready for me to post the information about muhammad the assassin.

  132. @Muslim Man… you mention the idea that "political considerations" have to be investigated in order to reach a "fair" assessment. I would say: "fair enough" if this were isolated to one country or region within a country. However, murderous brutality is a trademark of islam wherever it spreads, from india to france, to the netherlands to the UK. It is NOT, as you are trying to get people to believe, an anomaly. It is the very nature of islam to spread brutality, opression and terror. Muhammad himself proclaimed: "I am made victorious through terror."

    Keep in mind as you read the following links, that the Bangladeshi muslims are turning away their Rohingya muslim brothers and sisters by the hundreds of thousands who are trying to reach safety from the violence that was sparked in neighboring burma, when 3 muslims raped and slit the throat of Thida Htwe, while she walked home from her job. They robbed her, and took her jewelry, and dumped her body in a mangrove field.

  137. @Muslim Man… First you called it "occasional tensions" in islamic countries, and now you state: "The violence happening in many of these countries baffles many people." Why would "occasional tensions" baffle many? Because it is more than occasional and it is more than tensions.

    See… In an earlier post regarding the "millions" of non-muslims living in virtual peace and harmony in islamic countries, instead of just coming out and admitting that there is "baffling" violence in these countries… you instead stated: "Occassionally there are tensions, and some of the tensions can be bloody – but these are an exception rather than the norm."

    I then asked you for five countries where these millions of non-muslims are living in all this peace and harmony, and you posted: Turkey, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria (REALLY?), Bangladesh… wow… are you SURE you want to post THESE countries? Nigeria? Bangladesh? Really?

  138. Dear zitouni, I know the three universities you mentioned, and I am aware of international Islamic universities in Uganda, Pakistan, Malaysia. I also know that there are hundreds other Islamic universities in the Muslim world, which offer various academic programs in Islamic sciences. However, graduating from these programs does not automatically make a person a qualified scholar who can issue fatwa or interpret the Quran through rigorous ijtihad process.

    Certainly the presence of graduates of these programs in the community is very beneficial in providing guidance to the ummah in various aspects of the religion.

  139. So….. Azzu girl, its time for you to stop thinking about what is wrong with this man and the marriage. It is time for you to stop complaining how bad the food is. It is time to take some ACTION. Throw the food away. Simple. Get something else to eat.
    Are you taking action? Are you getting a divorce? If you stay in this marriage and you keep complaining, guess what: You DO have to lie in this bed because you made it. No one wants to hear you complain while you are sitting in the marriage.
    So START the divorce process. Then join any relationships forum for support.
    People are tired of hearing you complain about the marriage.

    Its just like the food example I gave. You are eating a plate of dinner and its horrible but you are continuing to eat it and are complaining and wishing the food was different. IT CANT BE.
    Get something else to eat OR stop complaining. We don't want to hear it.

  140. Search for truth said:
    "Dismissal and denial are not REBUTTAL!"

    Ali Sina can be seen to use the terms Nonsens, Lies etc also, but he always let those follow by a proper REBUTTAL, explaining how he looks upon the same issue and why he prefers his own take over the take of his opponent.

    But when you are only in a destructive mode you dismiss-deny-debunk on ground only of an opponent not having provided evidence and an answer. But the opponent does not need to do this, because what he proposed could still be true and meritorious.

    He merely risks being defeated by contradicting evidence and a contradicting opinion supported by evidence.

  141. Many of your debunking-denial-dismissing and then denigrating-deflecting CONCLUSIONS are based on the fallacy of assuming a proposition false merely because it is not accompanied by evidence.

    this means that subsequent conclusions by you of lying of your opponent and him being dishonest or your opponent being defeated by just because he did not answer your demands for proof, are also

    FALSE CONCLUSIONS, based on you committing the fallacy mentioned above.

  142. You asking for evidence, examples is fine. But the opponent who has just made a proposition for which you asked that, is under no obligation to answer. Even if he does not answer it is still a fallacy to declare his proposition false merely because of lack of evidence.

    It should be enough that the opponent to such a person who gives propositions but no evidence is in a favorable position to convince the reader by providing counterproof, or a counterproposition WITH evidence.

  143. I say that you have 2 parts at least in your responses;
    I. the constructive part, which is often very good.
    II. The debunking-denying-dismissing-denigrating-deflecthing, in short destructive part.

    This second part is in potential for a big part to the disadvantage of the reader, because possible true and meritorious claims-propositions-opinions of your opponents are swept away through you committing the fallacy of assuming a proposition false, meaningless, meritless simply because evidence is not attached and the readers then is in danger of also dismissing truth and merit.

  144. This is that same fallacy in a somewhat different form:

    "Argument from ignorance (appeal to ignorance, argumentum ad ignorantiam) – assuming that a claim is true (or false) because it has not been proven false (true) or cannot be proven false (true).[13]

    You use the variety of assuming that a claim is false because it has not been proven true.

    I am a person rich in details, proposition, or claims, opinions but poor or slow in providing evidence for them.

    I am not used to accompany propositions-claims-opinions with evidence all the time. Neither are almost all those I interact with regularly.

    But to claim my propositions-claims-opinions are false JUST because I fail to provide evidence, THAT IS a logical fallacy. It is also a fallacy to assume that my propositions are meaningless, without merit, simply because there is no evidence attached to them.

    Truthseeker-readers should accept at least ambiguity about my propositions or give me benefit of the doubt for the sake of finding highest possible truth and not believe you when you start being negative about them; claiming them to be false, meritless and not worthy of belief, consideration, examination.

  145. THIS is the fallacy you keep committing and using:

    "Argumentum ad lapidem (Latin: "to the stone") is a logical fallacy that consists in dismissing a statement as absurd without giving proof of its absurdity.[1] The form of argument employed by such dismissals is the argumentum ad lapidem, or appeal to the stone.[2][3]
    Ad lapidem statements are fallacious because they fail to address the merits of the claim in dispute. "

  146. Still waterv said : actually, your post is not correct. What Dar es Salam" means is "house of peace," and has nothing to do with submission. It is a different phrase altogether..

  147. still water said : Dear J Stillwater, as far as I know there is no agency in the Muslim world which qualifies 'qualified scholars'.

    I do not know what do you mean by agency . There are academics establishement which qualifies Koranic scholars just like all academics establishemnet which qualifies biblical scholars , English scholars , history scholars and son on . You are very ignorant person about Islam . Have you ever heard about Azhar university in Egypt or the world first university Kayrawan in Morocco , or Zaytona University in Tunisia ??? . Al these universities are world top in producing Koranic scholars

  148. Dear J_Stillwater, you said "I have already asked this question of muslims… in fact… very learned muslims… and they have all agreed that jizya will return with the reinstatement of shariah law in a worldwide califate (in conquered areas anyway)"

    How many very learned Muslims did you ask? Do you think they represent all Muslims?

  149. Dear J_Stillwater, we can find non-Muslims live happily in Turkey, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Bangladesh, and other Muslim countries. One Coptic Christian represented Egypt in the UN as the UN Secretary General. Just recently a Hindu became Chief Justice in Pakistan. Non-Muslims in Malaysia and Indonesia play a major role in the economies of the two countries. If I am not mistaken, Istanbul remains the center of the world's Orthodox Christianity.

    The violence happening in many of these countries baffles many people. This is despite the injunction to do good to others and the fact that these people have a track record of being peaceful. A textual interpretation of the verse in its exclusivity is one possibility to explain what has happened. But I believe there are political considerations, which we have to investigate as well in order to establish a fair assessment of the situation.

  150. Dear J_Stillwater, you said: " your "qualified scholars" have "interpreted" the words "strike at their necks at length" to include striking at their necks, heads, chests, legs, arms, etc., with… bombs, ak47's, improvised explosive devices, shoulder launched grenades, suicide vests, sniper rounds, etc.

    I am wondering where and when I suggested that my qualified scholars etc … etc. I hope this does not represent "ad hominem" and "fallacy of insufficient sample" on your part.

  151. Dear J_Stillwater, what you call madness, I call it dynamics. This has been shown since the early days of Islam. For instance, the second Caliph called for tarawih prayer to be done in congregation — this was not practiced during the days of the Prophet. Tarawih prayer is a recommended prayer during the nights of Ramadhan. Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Hijra year during which Muslims fast.

    Prayer (or "salah") is not something that can be lightly decided upon even by a Caliph. The hadeeth has reports on the consideration why the second Caliph took that position and how that position was adopted. Yet, even until now there are still people who disagree with the second Caliph. This is what I call dynamics.

    So, there are precedents for interpretation and reinterpretation. And there is always room for differences.

    This include differences in opinion on the application of jizya. I believe the majority of Muslims are of the opinion that jizya is no longer applicable as shown by the fact that there is no jizya being applied in any Muslim countries. But, as I have said, some people or scholars may have a different opinion – they are entitled to their opinion, but they don't represent all Muslims.

  152. Dear J_Stillwater, Islamic scholarship is dynamic and contextual. There has been interpretation and reinterpretation of Quran. Certainly, there are also scholars who insist on textual interpretation of Quran. However, I believe, contextual interpretation is the most suitable.

  153. Dear J Stillwater, as far as I know there is no agency in the Muslim world which qualifies 'qualified scholars'. However, there are thousands of learning institutions in the Muslim world which train Muslims on various disciplines of Islam such as aqidah, fiqh, and of course Arabic language. Recent dvelopment also sees increasing interest in Islamic economics and finance. As far as I know, none of these institutions calls its graduates 'qualified scholar' or even 'scholar.' The term 'scholar', although not sacred, commands a very high respect from the community, and it is the community itself in very informal and unofficial way which recognizes a person a 'scholar.' Therefore, the scholars don't have to come to you to get your recognition. What you have to do is produce your opinion on a number of issues and let the community and other scholars judge for themselves whether your opinion is scholarly enough that makes you eligible to be called a scholar. If you can produce scholarly opinion, the community will call you a scholar even if you don't want to be called as such.

    However, there are always differences among scholars, which has led to formation of different schools of thought. This also shows that there is no obligation for a Muslim to follow a certain fatwa issued by a certain scholar.

  154. Dear J Stillwater, I continue to maintain that slaughtering people who disagree with you is bad. And the Prophet did not sluaghter people who disagreed with him. Therefore, I don't slaughter people just because of them being in disagreement with me.

    The context of the Quran injunction is war. In a peaceful situation, where there is no war and therefore no enemies that injunction is not applicable. There is a saying or a hadith (I cannot quote it precisely — that's why I am not a qualified scholar) which says that Islam is a religion for people who think. I would not be considered a thinking person if I just went to my neighbor's house and kill him, and had I done that thenI was in clear violation of the Prophet's teaching.

  155. Tay either you are stupid or not well informed ! Even I have suggested divorce based on compatibility issues but didn't get reply.

    There are hundreds of hundreds of stories have deformed relationships , love involving other faiths But…

    Simple thing to understand intention of this site. It aims to frame Islam, Muslims, prophet by making object of subject of such stories !

    If you think this reply unpleasant so as truth is bitter lol

  156. C, I didn't reply directly to your post as I am not a member of your blogging site, hence I posted here for you.

    I might have chosen a wrong place to reply your post haha cos i've just received a reply, and thinking it might be you, i read it and then realised oops it's not, but, just to add, was uninvited and unpleasant, to say the very best.

    So C, i hoped you read my 2 earlier messages to you and if you do not, I wish you the very best. I worded my texts carefully so far, or so I thought, so as not to get involved with theological debates with either sides. But I guess, my naive attempt failed, and badly haha. So it's best I keep my mouth shut henceforth. You may email me privately if you wish about your life. I left my email address at this site, Ali's site I believe? before I can post to you as a guest.

    C, do what makes you truly happy. We all do so, even the gentleman who have just posted the 'unpleasant' reply to me. He needed to feel better. And he, as well as others, probably would do again after this, it is beyond his control, but will claim that it is by his choice, which is …..well. But C, you DO have a choice. Be TRULY happy. Choose it. Be in control of your life. You know what to do. Just do it.

    Bye

  157. Zakat said : Reading is not enough ,the purpose is most important ,you may be having plenty of time on useless discussion ,teach this to your child and u r un-educated ***** wife, OK, I am not here to taker your kind thought (that is garbage for me ,keep it with you) .

    I am not going to waste my time with dumb fucck ignorant and lazy kafir who wants to oppose before learning anything

  158. So why BOTHER to come to a controversial site in the first place? For what . . . then run away?

    - – -

    Sina has done this before. After some posts . . . the alleged person mysteriously disappears – perhaps in order NOT to reveal the forgery by tripping up?

  159. C, do not be distracted from comments on this blog about religious debates from both sides. Why bother how others see you? Let them think you are fake or whatever. Let them. Don't allow yourself to think more than 2 seconds about these remarks. It's not worth your brain space.

    Instead focus on your issue at hand. Take those advice from comments that address your main concern. And make your decisions. Do not be sidetracked. Focus!

    Dont be bothered to explain yourself or argue further. There will always be interesting contraceptions devised to throw you off because of the specific situation you are in. This blog will turn into a debate for others' purposes. But if those comments serve none of your needs except to cause you further distress and hurt, ignore them.

    Get a firm grip of your emotions. Do not be distracted. Your issue is your marriage. Comments that do not address your specific isues are not going to help you deal with your marriage except waste your time further.

    And go see a shrink for your panic attacks. Medication and other forms of help are also available.

    Peace.

  160. Dear C, you can't change your husband, not even by trying to love him, nothing will. Give up that notion. It is his own free will to change. You can't love him to change him, that would not be love on your part. That would be manipulative and selfish. Hopefully my words are not too harsh to you. But the grace your Faith taught you is not to love for a purpose. It is acceptance.

    If you love him, let him be. Accept him as he is. Recognise he has a choice. It is entirely up to him. Whether he is brainwashed, or he is indeed or not capable/have the freedom of mind to choose, it is not an excuse which you need to give him, so as to give yourself a 'reason' to stay.

    But you have to love yourself as well, as your Faith teaches you 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'. Which implies you have to first love yourself. And respect yourself enough to stand up for how others treat you. You are blinded by your feelings too much. Let go of this relationship, this marriage, this man. Loving feelings, needing someone, loneliness, pain, these are transient only. Embrace them yes, but keep moving. These feelings will go away. Have the courage to want to have a better life, to want to wake up one morning and smile, instead of cry.

    He does not love you the way you wish him to. After all the things he did to you as described by your letter. Face that fact. He is not right guy.

    Be courageous and strong. Exercise your right as an adult to choose. Move on. Walk away. Be free. Go back to Your Faith. Have children in the future to embrace the Faith of your choice.

    Be brave, C, be brave. Very quickly, happiness will find you.

  161. NOTICE . . . . the quote is FROM

    Religonofpeace. . .site

    And I refuted their inaccurate claims . . .

    - – -

    You said:

    "I'm glad you've finally admitted that islam is not a religion of peace, and is instead, an aggressive, religio/fascist ideology of supremacy and world domination. Thank you.
    "

    Which implies I am agreeing to what you claim.

    Which is NOT the case.

    - – -

    Did you BOTHER to read what was posted?

    I don't think so . . .

    You were simply interested in an attempt to demonise.

  162. "But I propose that in the presence of a proposition without evidence the job of a defender is to provide to the reader a SECOND OPINION, however small, and with no obligation of evidence, to choose from. "

    This is SIMPLY absurd – and simply EXCUSES from you.

    Who else has come up with this and agrees with you?

    Name them. . .

    SURELY – you are NOT the only person to say this.

    - – -

    This has actually gone on long enough. You made a claim – WHICH YOU PROBABLY made up . . .

    when challenged . . . you could NOT GIVE EVIDENCE. . .

    Hence this excuse.

    I was probably right.

    Rather than admitting . . . you are simply carrying on with this absurdity.

    - – -

    "Aminriadh (often) wants to nullify propositions, arguments, claims, as if they were never mentioned."

    Where – you make MANY lying claims about me. . . then simply subside when challenged . . . then they pop up again.

    - – -

    "That is if he does not want to use propositions against opponents if he can.
    (But that same treatment he does not want to be used against Quran-Hadiths-Sira-Tafsir). "

    More lying. And NOTHING more . . .

    - – -

    See you made this "propositions " BS up. No one in the world hold this to be true. Else . .. show me?

    And use this BS to make up further strange excuses and lies like this:

    "That is if he does not want to use propositions against opponents if he can.
    (But that same treatment he does not want to be used against Quran-Hadiths-Sira-Tafsir)."

    - – -

    "I want to accept and appreciate propositions a little and let them then be opposed by and compete and be compared with better propositions, arguments, claims, opinions. To present the reader with informed choices. It is a positive approach. "

    No just absurd – and UTTER BS.

    Else why don't you show me – who else is saying it?

  163. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… read paragraphs 6, 7 and 8 in your post that generated my comments which you say are "lies." You'll see that you indeed DID post three paragraphs (with a quote from islamic scholar Ibrahim Sulaiman), from which I quoted two. You'll notice, if you read up the page, to where your name appears, you'll see "aminthemystic" as the person who posted that comment.

    So… is aminthemystic actually several people posting under the same screen name? That would explain why you didn't even know you had posted this information… one wonders…. doesn't one?

  164. "It is the umptieth strawman-fallacy committed against me. "

    No it isn't – else for the umpteenth time why?

    - – -

    "I am in favor of letting personal abuse be and against protection of hurt feelings. "

    NO – you actively encouraged and JUSTIFIED such abuse.

    That is 2 different things.

    Continual denial of this is just lying about it.

    - – -

    "But I understand that there are borders, like the place where to do it, on principle a place where people can "zap away" and I suppose that extreme cases of slander can be punishable by law. "

    Again . . .excuses.

    As per usual – this is NOT for the 1st time. When on issues you claim to have certain beliefs – then it proven and used against you . . .

    you start to make excuses.

    - – -

    "Burden of proof" is one such issue. You make absurd excuses against it.

  165. Actually – you HAVE lost all credibility when you do what you did.

    I mean it generally!

    - – -

    It is NOT that I assume to speak for everyone – I don't have to.

    Such actions lead to loss of credibility near friend and foe.

    - – -

    "Finally… your statement assumes that I once had credibility with you. I sincerely doubt this is the case, so again, logical fallacy, and just another attempt to "poison the well" in the hopes that your comments will distract readers away from my reasoning… classic debate tactics… but again… poorly played. "

    As per usual – you simply tend to accuse people of "logical fallacies"

    I have REPEATEDLY proven to these to be false.

    You simply do this to appear big.

    - – -

    As I said . . .. matter of credibility is NOT limited to whether one is one ones side or not.

    For example:

    A liar is a liar . . . .based upon telling lies.

    What side? That has nothing to do with it.

    - – -

    "in the hopes that your comments will distract readers away from my reasoning… classic debate tactics… but again… poorly played. "

    Which argument?

    What argument?

    There IS NO argument in the above. Else do point it out.

    You REPEATEDLY make such false allegation. . .

    and they are repeatedly exposed.

    Then you start inventing excuses. . . .like "search google" and whatnot.

    - – -

    You have simply read a list of fallacies and accuse by rote.

    As for understanding . . . that you lack.

    - – -

    Your loss of credibility id regrading your promises of logic and evidences . . .

    Which never did come.

    However as I pointed out in the above – what is with the above lie?

    - – -

    As you DID NOT bother to answer.

    One can say the only one distracting is you.

  166. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… now you are speaking for all people everywhere? Why don't you say: "J Stillwater, WITH ME you have lost all credibility…" ?? That would be more accurate. Can you see how your statement is a fallacy? It assumes in the conclusion, several things that you would have to prove first. It is much more accurate to state: "you have lost all credibility WITH ME," since you can ONLY speak for yourself, and not for anybody else.

    Finally… your statement assumes that I once had credibility with you. I sincerely doubt this is the case, so again, logical fallacy, and just another attempt to "poison the well" in the hopes that your comments will distract readers away from my reasoning… classic debate tactics… but again… poorly played.

  167. @Ali Sina and all… You are correct Mr. Sina. I do not think muslims are bad. As I stated to Muslim Man:

    I don't have an "unfavorable" attitude toward muslims. I have a justified attitude toward muslims who are acting unfavorably. The problem is not muslims… muslims are people… and people are the same everywhere… the problem is islam… the destroyer of progress and civilization…

    I have further discussed this in this series of comments: (part 1), (part 2).

    "Good" or "Evil" as I define it, has to do with behavior. "Good" is defined by the absence of "evil" behavior. In other words, if a person wants to be seen as good, then they must rid themselves of "evil" behavior, because in the presence of their evil behavior, they cannot be considered good. However, behavior, over time, does affect the mind and heart of a person. There does come a time when the line between person and behavior begins to blur. This is because practice becomes personality. This is not, however, a permanent condition, and can be changed by abandoning the cause of the evil behavior.

    "You posted:

It is exactly what we've been saying about it, it is madness. Only madmen say that "violence and bloodshed" are not "inhumane." Only madmen think they have the right to "subdue people of other religions." And only madmen (and madwomen) follow such insanity.

  171. @Slave of prophet… you've made my case for me… A few days ago, you appeared and answered a post with the following comment:

    Muslim are most peaceful people of the world. Islam does not need recognition from Kufr/non-believers as peaceful religion because Allah himself said Muslim are best people and best creature. Our prophet Mohammed was messenger of peace and established peace all over the world by establishing Islam.

    I answered your comment (click here) and stated islam is indeed NOT the most peaceful religion… and you responded with the post just above this one… which contains the following statement:

    My lord Allah do right by punishing and torture you in eternal hell fire. Quran rightly says kill the monster like you…

    Now… why can't you see, that your allah, by using words like "punish" and "torture" and "eternal hell fire" proves islam is FAR from a religion of peace? Why can't you see that your qur'an, by using the words "kill" and "monster" proves that muhammad, islam, and muslims are NOT peaceful. I'm amazed, after your blatant contradiction, you still don't see the madness of islam. The word "peace" now means "punish" and "torture," and "kill" and "eternal hell fire." Yes, Slave of prophet… this all makes perfect sense. I can see why everyone should want to become a muslim.

  172. in anoyjer dumb fucck idiot . Go and read about Banu Mustaliq dummy before you say there were innocent

    keep this mubahila with you and your pig head Mohammed Jesus or Bufda were not political or military leaders . Prophet Muhamed he acted like them when he was in Mecca , but once he became leader he had to take arms and defend his nation
    Your breast fed Mohammed is worst then the Atilla the Viking

    Muhamed was more than a prophet

    You are confused lot ,pass elementary exams in arguments and critical thinking and then come here. If your pig head Mohammed is above Prophet ,what was he "Phosphate" Mohammed .Think about it.

  173. Reading is not enough ,the purpose is most important ,you may be having plenty of time on useless discussion ,teach this to your child and u r un-educated whore wife, OK, I am not here to taker your kind thought (that is garbage for me ,keep it with you) .

  174. Correction: I want to let them be opposed and compete and be compared with

    OTHER propositions, arguments, claims, opinions. the reader can decide which propositions are the BETTER ones.

  175. "Or that he [Demsci] holds giving evidence to be true and proper thing to do. . . but not doing"

    True. But incomplete. Nevertheless I appreciate the understanding that indeed I do believe giving evidence to be proper and in the interest of finding more and higher truth.

    But in a context; in a setting where there is a proposer, an opponent, usually a defender of something, and there is at least one …… reader, judge, juror.

    When there are 2 sides the side with the argument with the best evidence should and would be favored by the reader.

    But I propose that in the presence of a proposition without evidence the job of a defender is to provide to the reader a SECOND OPINION, however small, and with no obligation of evidence, to choose from.

    Instead what Aminriadh as a defender tries to do again and again (but not always, I know): To debunk-deny-dismiss-negate the propositions of, say, "prosecutors" or "witnesses", the ordinary, average commenters here.

    By his argument of appealing to ignorance, saying that propositions of opponents are false or meaningless, because of lack of evidence.

    Aminriadh (often) wants to nullify propositions, arguments, claims, as if they were never mentioned. That is if he does not want to use propositions against opponents if he can.
    (But that same treatment he does not want to be used against Quran-Hadiths-Sira-Tafsir).

    I want to accept and appreciate propositions a little and let them then be opposed by and compete and be compared with better propositions, arguments, claims, opinions. To present the reader with informed choices. It is a positive approach.

  176. Hello Muslim Man, I find it very interesting what you say. About Ijtihad and that leading to new or better Islamic law.

    I want to bring to your attention the following;
    In Islam there is the deathpenalty for apostasy. This is forbidding Muslims to get out of the Ummah, the organisation of all Muslims.

    But when parties, organisations have "tenets, goals, standards", which are all declared in some sort of central law or document, then that party expects it's members to conform to those tenets, goals, standards.

    And if people who call themselves members of that party start saying, and acting upon, different tenets, goals, standards, then, after warning to those dissidents by the leaders of the party, those dissidents will be thrown out of the party.

    They will be forbidden to be IN THE PARTY, they can no longer speak in the name of the party. But with Muslims the law is that they are forbidden to be OUT OF THE PARTY.

    Can you see that that leads to a "Muslim-party", the Ummah, with many different opinions, unchecked? And that that leads to lack of credibility for Muslims who claim or imply to speak for all Muslims?

  177. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… please tell me these two statements are not saying the same thing in different ways…

    I wrote: "The whole idea of an "outline" is that it is not comprehensive,"

    You replied: "No – Just because something is an outline – it doesn't make it comprehensive. It makes it the OPPOSITE of comprehensive."

    So… I wrote "not comprehensive" and your "the OPPOSITE of comprehensive." Isn't NOT comprehensive the same things as "the opposite" of comprehensive? In other words, isn't "not A" the same as "Non-A?"

    J Stillwater

  178. Continued from above…

    @Muslim Man… you wrote:

    Like you I will also shiver if something like the verse you quoted is read to me. But unlike you, I will try to understand why it is like that. I will investigate the context. Consult with the scholars. Check with people in the street. These are what you may consider doing in order to arrive at a better understanding of the Quran.

    JS: That last statement is chock full of fallacies, as are most of the ones that follow it (see below). You're committing the fallacy of "begging the question," because you have assumed many things that are unproven. You assume, by saying "But unlike you…" that I have not tried to understand why it is like that. You also assume I have not investigated the context, consulted with scholars, etc. You also assume that any of these things will lead to a "better understanding of the qur'an." If the "interpretation" of these verses is constantly being changed by "qualified scholars," (as you've already stated), how can I ever have a clear understanding of the qur'an? How can you? How can anyone? Your next paragraph contains so many fallacies I will handle it all fallacy-by-fallacy using bold text for your comments and plain text for my responses.

    But you have to do it in an honest manner [Ouch! Begs the question, and is ad hominem… because it assumes I have not done my studies in an "honest manner."] Learn about the Quran and Muslims with no preconceived ideas and suspicion." [Ouch! Begs the question… assumes that I approach my study with "preconceived ideas and suspicion."] such as: "don't expect Muslims to be honest," "Muslims are liars" [The islamic practice of taqia (click here) says muslims are indeed liars, in fact, muslims are encouraged to lie if it suits their strategic goals… people who follow a systematized doctrine of lying, for whatever reason… cannot be expected to be honest… and.. because they are told to practice lying… they are liars… right?]

    Muslim Man, you criticized my statement: "Islam is a cult" [ Please look up the definition of the word "cult" and then tell me why islam does not fit that description: "…a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister" - does that description fit what the Quraysh thought of muhammad for 12 years (while all the while he taunted and insulted them and their religion and hurled threats at them like "Hear me, O Quraysh. By Him who holds Muhammad’s life in his hand, I will bring you slaughter.") until he was run out of mecca? (his behavior sounds "sinister" doesn't it?) Some people, have never stopped seeing islam as a cult. I'm one of those people. I don't think anything different about muhammad than the Quraysh did (they thought he was a dangerous madman and islam was a dangerous cult, and they KNEW him personally). So, the view of islam being a cult, has been around since the very first day muhammad stepped forward and condemned his neighbors to hell fire… and this "cult" label just continues until today.] — these are non starters if you want to have a meaningful dialogue [ begs the question… because it assumes I must speak untruths in order to have "meaningful dialogue" and it is a fallacy called "appeal to moderation," which states that a person must bring their ideas and language (and logical reasoning) more and more toward the opponents side in order to appease the opponent into being engaged in the discussion. This is a fallacy.] These are insults [red herring and "appeal to emotion"… just because muslims are insulted by the information I provide, or the things I say, doesn't mean I am intentionally insulting them (the side or "red herring" argument). What I am doing is making very well informed observations (not insults), and from those observations I am making certain conclusions, and then, presenting those conclusions as my reasons for calling muhammad a false prophet and islam false. If muslims are offended, I would suggest they use their allah given logic and show me why my observations are false. If a muslim "insults" me, it is just further proof that they have no logical REASONING to answer my claims and observations… so they will "retaliate" with insults, instead of taking a VERY hard and critical look at their prophet and his islam. ] and the Muslims may consider reciprocating, if they don't have enough patience [muslims insult non-muslims (kafir, infidel, donkeys, apes and swine, etc.) in their qur'an, in their mosques, in their prayers, on the streets in their protests, in their fatwas, in their shariah law, and at the slightest perceived provocation… but thanks for the warning. ]

    MM: J Stillwater, probably you have understood the verse correctly from the language perspective … I say probably, because I am not well trained in Arabic

    JS: Are the islamic commentators who write the expositions (Tafseer) of qur'anic verses well trained in Arabic? Can their interpretation of that verse be studied, understood, and trusted?

    MM: But surely your understanding is far from being sufficient. To understand it full well (or better), you have to ask why Muslims are no longer applying jizya on non Muslims?

    JS: I have already asked this question of muslims… in fact… very learned muslims… and they have all agreed that jizya will return with the reinstatement of shariah law in a worldwide califate (in conquered areas anyway)… so I would say I understand that verse very well… See my comment regarding the sharia law, the muslim brotherhood, and the worldwide caliphate … jizya is coming… just ask Morsi…

    Is this a signal of them leaving the religion? It seems to me you have not asked this question.

    JS: Which question have I not asked? The one about the jizia, or the one about the "leaving the religion?" I already know the answer to the first question and the second question never occurred to me. That's YOUR question. Why would I ask if it is a sign of muslims leaving the religion? I already know it's not a sign of them leaving their religion… see my comments above.

    You then state:

    MM: What is happening now is just the opposite. Millions and millions of non-Muslims work and live in Muslim countries. No jizya being applied on them, they just pay taxes as do Muslims. Children of non Muslim families are educated in the same schools as are Muslims children. Occassionally there are tensions, and some of the tensions can be bloody – but these are an exception rather than the norm.

    JS: Please post 5 "muslim" countries where this is happening and provide the demographic breakdowns to show us why you have reached the conclusions you stated above. Also, see my commend regarding the worldwide caliphate and shariah law. If a caliphate is ever revived, sharia law, and the jizya (part of shariah law) will also be revived, and it will be a VERY bad day for the people who are unfortunate enough to find themselves in muslim countries.

    With regard to your statement: "Occassionally there are tensions…," you appear to not have access to al jazeera or any other major news outlet. These "tensions" are far more than just tensions, and their regularity is far greater than you want to admit. These comments are either extremely naive, or you are practicing that islamic lying (taquia) I mentioned in an earlier post.

  181. "Either Demsci – trying to Justify personal abuse – whilst maintain he is against it! "

    I caught that just now.

    It is the umptieth strawman-fallacy committed against me.
    I am in favor of letting personal abuse be and against protection of hurt feelings.

    But I understand that there are borders, like the place where to do it, on principle a place where people can "zap away" and I suppose that extreme cases of slander can be punishable by law.

  182. Continue from above…

    @Muslim Man… you wrote above:

    MM: Now, you may want to tell me where I can find jizya being practiced in the Muslim world or where Muslims strike the neck of non-Muslims when they meet each other

    JS: I have never said that jizya was being practiced. I posted that the qur'an says it should be levied on non-muslims. Muslims are commanded to levy this tax… but, it is not the tax itself that concerns me… it is the INTENT of the tax that I find troubling. The intent of this tax is to show the conquered infidel their place of humiliation and submission, and show that their "muslim masters" are superior and "above" the lowly kafir. Evil is generated from the heart. The humiliation tax is an outward and fascist and supremacist expression of something that is commanded to be happening in the muslim's heart, and that is, seeing the kafir infidel as lower, humiliated. However, now that you've brought it up, there is a very good reason why you don't see this tax being levied on a large scale (Taliban, etc.). The reason this tax is not currently being levied is because it is a part of shariah law. There is no world-wide islamic caliphate and so there are no countries currently practicing shariah law. The goal of the muslim brotherhood is to bring a world-wide caliphate and reinstate shariah law, and Morsi has promised to bring back the jizya (see links below). In fact, his comment made a huge stink, and is still available in the original arabic at one of the links I've posted below. The reason why you see the Jizya being levied against indians in pakistan, by the Taliban, is because they see it as being loyal to what the qur'an teaches them.

    Referring to your "strike at their necks at length" comment, you stated:

    MM: These are not happening in this modern world, because we Muslims keep learning from and studying the Quran

    JS: In fact, these things are INDEED happening in the muslim world, but they are happening with roadside bombs, AK47's, shoulder launched grenades, sniper attacks, acid attacks, poisonings, gang rapes, street brawls, etc. (See the links below). The reason they are happening (unbelievably) in "this modern world" is because verses commanding muslims to "fight the infidel" appear in the qur'an, and your "qualified scholars" have "interpreted" the words "strike at their necks at length" to include striking at their necks, heads, chests, legs, arms, etc., with… bombs, ak47's, improvised explosive devices, shoulder launched grenades, suicide vests, sniper rounds, etc.

  183. Continued from above…

    @Muslim Man…

    When you say:

    MM: "We muslims have something called "interpretation" or tafseer,"

    JS: You are saying that the qur'an contains commands that can be "changed" over time. This is a fallacy called "begging the question," because it assumes in its conclusion the very thing it seeks to prove (i.e. the qur'an's commands can be, or need to be "interpreted.") The qur'an calls itself a clear book, that has been preserved, and that it is written in heaven… so… how can the interpretation "change?" Didn't his companions follow his teachings? Didn't they know what he did? Don't you have a record of what they said and did? How can your scholars claim, 1400 years removed from the times of muhammad, that they know better than muhammad with regard to what these things mean? See, if the qur'an remains like it is, then somewhere down the road, it will once again be reinterpreted by someone's "rigorous thinking process" and these new "qualified scholars" will deem your present scholars not "rigorous" enough, or "too rigorous" or whatever the excuse will be, just like your present scholars are obviously deeming the scholars before them, and muslims will change the meaning again and this madness will continue. With regard to Tafseer, there are already very respected tafseer that have given comprehensive expositions on what the qur'an says AND means. In fact, zoutoni is always telling me how important tafseer is, and I concur with his claim. So, don't you see that this continual "changing" of the meaning of the qur'an actually leads to more problems than it solves? In one century a verse in the qur'an means one thing, and in the next century, it means something totally different, and the next century, it is changed back to what it meant in the first century. Is this any way to teach your children that allah is all-knowing and all-wise? If allah is all knowing… why couldn't he get it right the first time? Also, how in the world are islamic scholars going to reinterpret "humiliation tax?" Or making the infidel feel "subdued?" Morsi is reinstating the Jizya in the new "muslim brotherhood" egypt, because he knows it is what muslims are commanded to do (see links below). If your scholars are going to "interpret" that verse, they had better hurry up, because Morsi isn't waiting (see links below).

    You also state:

    MM: The same verse will remain the same, but its interpretation may change… As I stated in my previous response to you, the word "fight" is not necessarily interpreted as "war," it is also being translated as hard work.

    JS: It appears quite clear to me, when you follow the phrase "fight those" with the phrase "until THEY pay the jizya [Humiliation Tax] with submission, and feel themselves subdued" you kind of get the idea that "fight" is not being used to refer to "hard work." Unless of course subduing people and extorting a Humiliation Tax and making them feel subdued, is "hard work." I have a feeling it will take a bit more than hard work. It'll probably take… well… FIGHTING.

    JS: This is the second time you've made the distinction between a "raw person" like yourself, and "qualified scholars." This distinction is obviously deliberate. What you are saying here, is, "Unless a person is a 'qualified scholar' they cannot know what the qur'an means." However, today's "qualified scholars" obviously feel that yesterday's "qualified scholars" didn't get it quite right… Consider this: Where do "qualified scholars" come from? What "qualifies" a qualified scholar? Who qualifies the qualified scholar so that they are "qualified" to change the meaning of verses in your holy qur'an? What are the qualifications of the person who qualified the qualifier to authorize the "qualified scholar" to make changes to the meaning of the holy qur'an? Who qualifies that person, and, in turn, who qualified them? And who qualified that person? Do you see how this is totally circular reasoning? Did they consult you for your consensus on whether or not their qualifications "qualify" them to reinterpret the qur'an for YOU? Did they consult me? Why should you, or I, (or anyone) agree with their rulings? Why should I believe their rulings over those of the past that they are now "qualified" to "reinterpret?" Why should I believe them over what muhammad showed us with is very life and actions? It is all circular reasoning. muhammad is turning in his grave.

  185. @Muslim Man… continued from above… in order to read both parts, please click my screen name and read both responses there in series (the last second part appears first).

    If we're defining "good" as non-muslims define it, in other words, "the absence of evil," then we cannot say there are "good" muslims (unless they are being disobedient to the commandments in the qur'an). We can say that muslims on do "beneficial things," and muslims do "reprehensible things" (both of which are commanded in the qur'an). Even serial killers are "good" to their own children. They may even be religious and give to charities, and dress up as a clown and bring happiness to children, as in the case of John Wayne Gacy, but these good deeds, in the presence of their evil deeds, restrain us from ever being able to call the serial killer good. It is not good deeds that are used to prove or disprove a person's righteousness or goodness or, in muhammad's or allah's case divine inspiration… it is the "absence" of evil deeds that proves or disproves someone's goodness. A serial killer is deemed "not good" because he murders innocent people in series. If we use the serial killer's definition of good, we will be in agreement with his mass murdering, because he sees this as good. If we use the normal definition of good, and yet, look only at the serial killer's "beneficial acts," we will have the picture of an angel, and may be tempted to follow him into his killing room… it is not until we look at his evil deeds that we see him for what he is and be warned away from following him. In the case of muhammad, it is the presence of his evil deeds which show us his true character, and proves for us that he is not a prophet of god, for if he were, we would see god's character in him. It is his brutality, sexual escapades, lack of restraint and lack of compassion that is our indication he was not receiving his revelations from god, and therefore it must be concluded that islam is false. It is the emulation of these reprehensible behaviors that makes muslims incapable of being "good," as illustrated by the chants being heard in otherwise peaceful european neighborhoods: "Obama, Obama, we are all Osama."

    J Stillwater

  186. @Muslim Man… this will be a response in two parts… please click on my screen name and you can read them both in series (the last response will be listed first)…

    I believe there is a sharp distinction between "faithful" and "good." This is because the definition of "faithful" is always the same (i.e. a loyal, constant, and steadfast adherence to a defined set of ideals). However the definition of "good" changes based on who is defining the term.

    A faithful muslim is a muslim who does all… all… the things that muhammad practiced and therefore called good (halal). A faithful muslim is a muslim who loyally, constantly and steadfastly follows the teachings of the qur'an and the sunnah (practices) of their prophet…

    If a muslim, for example, doesn't fight the kafir, and yet prays the necessary number of times a day, he is not a faithful muslim, because he is disobeying the verses in the qur'an which command muslims to fight non-believers (see Qur'an 9:29). At the same time, if a muslim fights the kafir, but doesn't perform the duty of zakat, he is not a faithful muslim. Or, if a muslim believes in jinns, but doesn't believe that muhammad actually spoke with gabriel, he is not a faithful muslim. If a muslim believes hating the jews, and also sexually violating female captives are both acceptable things… he is a faithful muslim (because muhammad did both of these things). If a muslim bows to mecca to pray, but will not throw stones at an adulterer/adulteress to stone her to death… he is not a faithful muslim (because muslims are commanded to stone the adulterer/adulteress). If a muslim believes someone should be assassinated for speaking against muhammad, and that sex with 9-year-old girls is acceptable, he is a faithful muslim (because muhammad practiced both of these acts).

    So, again, with regard to who is a "faithful muslim," I have already pointed out that a "faithful muslim" does "what muhammad does." It is a complete package (see my post regarding the fallacy of "insufficient sample"). In the case of “good” vs “evil,” "good" has a unique definition in islam, because in islam, "good" includes many things (made halal or "good" by muhammad himself) that non-muslims have judged to be evil and reprehensible (i.e. violating the human rights of others, forced enslavement of other human beings, taxing to humiliate, making adoption illegal, ritual animal slaughter, sexual slavery, looting the belongings of others, Jew hating, mass killing, religious wars, revenge killings, political assassinations, child sex, etc., which were all practiced and made "good" by muhammad). Following the unique definition of “good” just given, a “faithful” muslim (completely loyal and obedient to the qur'an) is a “good” muslim.

  187. 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, from the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizia [Humiliation Tax] with submission, and feel themselves subdued. [Qur'an 9: 29]

    I have already explained this verse , but Kafirs do not want to stop being stupid . This is the background which preceded the revealation of verse 9: 29 .

    Prophet sent delegation of Muslims to Arab christian tribe once they got there they were killed in cold blood . when news reached Muslims , the prophet sent an army of 3000 men to punish the perpetrators what Muslims did not know that Byzantine has joined christian tribe by sending 10 of thousand of troops making them to declare open war against Muslims. they killed prophet first cousin , prophets adopted son and many more Muslims. The Muslims withdrew to Medina because it was impossible to continue fighting super power nation with just 3000 men. After few weeks traders coming back from Syria reported to the prophet that they saw Byzantine military ships arriving to Syrian port full of soldiers so it was in that days verse 9 : 29 was revealed urging Muslims to go and fight Byzantinians who were the first to start the war againt Muslims.

  188. \”It would be a sight and a treat to see him dismissing the arguments of Muslims who are in favor of the deathpenalty for Islam-apostasy.\”

    Nah! Aminriadh will never go against the Quran. He is just deceiving us, which is also an Islamic practice. He is a good Muslim.

  189. i think you should leave the relationship and start living with your family who really care for you.muslims are never taught every humanbeing is same.but they consider themselves as superior which is wrong.i can understand you sister in me you may find a friend.so if you need anyhelp as a brother i will help u..dont worry god has shown you the direction.you can message me if you like at djdjiw87@gmail.com
    we are all with u sister….

  190. zitouni… first, I have checked your claim and I TOTALLY agree with you that whoever wrote that article added words to the end of that quote from Bukhari and I make no excuses for the misrepresentation of Bukhari. it is inexcusable.

    If I were you I would reread all Mohameds biography from reliable sources and throw every idea about Mohamed until I finish reading Sira because I proved to you anti Islamic websites cannot be trusted .

    Muhammad's deeds stand on their own as a testimony against him without us having to add anything to the story. Let's remove Juwariya from the story for a moment. does it make the accounts you read on that page, the corrected accounts, any less sickening?

    You have built up your opinion about Mohamed by reading un reliable account from people who have no shame of changing hadiths .

    No. Does the fact that Banu Mustaliq is arab, and not jewish, change the monstrous behavior of your prophet? No.

    Read first why Mohamed had to fight that tribe

    tribe Banu Mustaliq was preparing to go launch an attack on Madinah, but the Muslims caught wind of their plan and quickly raised a defense force of 700 men who marched forward to the strategic point of Al-Marisa'. The Muslim army then sent a message to Banu Mustaliq to accept Islam, and in doing so abandon their hostilities and continue to live in peace and security in their own land. Instead of accepting this offer Banu Mustalaq declared war and shot one of the Muslim soldiers with an arrow, at which point wild fighting broke out.

    allah's "prophet" allowed by having a fire stick twirled into the flesh of his chest until Kinanah "almost expired" in order for muhammad to extract where the treasure was hidden. Ask yourself, why didn't the "all knowing" and "most merciful" allah just tell muhammad where this man hid his treasure so he didn't have to spend his last moments on earth in HORRIBLE AGONY? HELLO??? Not only is muhammad a beast, but allah is obviously NOT all knowing. Another of muhammad's lies. All-knowing beings KNOW where you hide your treasure.

    I do not believe this story took place . Ibn Ishaq was not always right when he recorded biography of the prophet . This incident contradicts what mohamed said about tortured with fire .Ibn Abbas said he heard prophet saying do not torture with fire because it is Allah way to torture kafirs in day of judgement . You either hadith was false or Ibn Ishaq was . I will give priority to hadiths than Sira.

    Muhammad's rapes have been dealt with at length on other sites, so it is not necessary here to speak of safiya.

    No rape took place . I have shown you countless hadiths where prophet recomended the good treatment of prisoners of war so how could he or the rest of Muslims rape captured women
    it just does not sense to me

    What I will mention here, however, is the fact muslims say muhammad married her right away, without waiting the mandatory and commanded 3 menstruation periods (again muhammad, allah's partner, changed the rules to suit himself). This was a blatant violation by your prophet, of the very command he said he received from allah. Your prophet didn't even obey your prophet, so why should you, and why should I?

    Safiya did observe her Iddah because it says when they reached Medina she went to live with an Ansari family and not with Mohamed until her iddah period was over then she moved in with Mohamed

  191. "But then, how do you react to those Muslims who are in favor of this? "
    By dismissing their arguments."

    Wow! that would be great! Aminriadh is very good and experienced and also very stern in dismissing.

    It would be a sight and a treat to see him dismissing the arguments of Muslims who are in favor of the deathpenalty for Islam-apostasy.

    And according to surveys there are hundreds of Millions of those. And on MEMRI-TV we have seen quite a few learned Imams advocating it. In Iran there are among the ayatollahs also many in favor of this deathpenalty.

    In Somalia and Saudi Arabia and even in Tunisia there were cases reported of it being executed. This sort of thing is routinely reported by Jihad Watch and ReligionOf Peace. And although these sites are biased I suppose, at the same time it is hard to refute the evidence and the sources.

  192. Dear J Stillwater,

    Not even one dot is going to be removed from the Quran. It will remain as it is. However, we Muslims have something called "interpretation" or tafseer, the best of which is a product of ijtihad, which is a rigorous thinking process by qualified scholars – not by just a raw person like myself.

    The same verse will remain the same, but its interpretation may change. As I stated in my previous response to you, the word "fight" is not necessarily interpreted as "war," it is also being translated as hard work.

    Now, you may want to tell me where I can find jizya being practiced in the Muslim world, or where Muslims strike the neck of non-Muslims when they meet each other. These are not happening in this modern world, because we Muslims keep learning from and studying the Quran.

    What is happening now is just the opposite. Millions and millions of non-Muslims work and live in Muslim countries. No jizya being applied on them, they just pay taxes as do Muslims. Children of non Muslim families are educated in the same schools as are Muslims children. Occassionally there are tensions, and some of the tensions can be bloody – but these are an exception rather than the norm.

    J Stillwater, probably you have understood the verse correctly from the language perspective … I say probably, because I am not well trained in Arabic. But surely your understanding is far from being sufficient. To understand it full well (or better), you have to ask why Muslims are no longer applying jizya on non Muslims? Is this a signal of them leaving the religion? It seems to me you have not asked this question.

    Like you I will also shiver if I something like the verse you quoted is read to me. But unlike you, I will try to understand why it is like that. I will investigate the context. Consult with the scholars. Check with people in the street. These are what you may consider doing in order to arrive at a better understanding of the Quran.

    But you have to do it in an honest manner. Learn about the Quran and Muslims with no preconceived ideas and suspicion such as: "don't expect Muslims to be honest"' "Muslims are liars" "Islam is a cult" — these are non starters if you want to have a meaningful dialogue. These are insults and the Muslims may consider reciprocating, if they don't have enough patience.

  193. @zitouni… regarding your comments above, please tell me what this following verse means, and why I and other non-muslims should consider it anything other than hate speech telling muslims to fight, kill, subdue and humiliate non-muslims…

    "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, from the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizia [Humiliation Tax] with submission, and feel themselves subdued. [Qur'an 9: 29]

    Please correct me if if this verse is not telling muslims to fight, kill, subdue, and humiliate non-muslims… Please help me see why this verse is not the muslim hate speech it appears to be.

    Please feel free to use any islamic scholars and muslim experts you feel necessary to help you explain your answer.

    J Stillwater

  194. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… your accusation that Muslim Man is actually Mr. Sina, is another of your favorite logical fallacies… it is a fallacy of misdirection called "poisoning the well."

    In the "poisoning the well" fallacy, instead of answering the logic of the opponent, you make accusations and create "conspiracy" scenarios that try to get the reader or listener to become distracted from the logic of your opponent. In this case, just the fact that you've used this fallacy is a veiled admission that the logic being offered to Muslim Man in response to his questions and comments, is too powerful for you to counter with your logic, so you must instead "poison the well" and try to get the reader to become distracted by some concocted "conspiracy theory" about Mr. Sina posing as Muslim Man.

    What you fail to realize… even if Muslim Man is a made-up visitor… and the comments are not genuine… the answers to the comments ARE genuine… because they ARE coming from real people, and they ARE using clear reasoning.

    Again.. what is always important in a discussion is the strength of the reasoning, and not all the little side fallacies you continue to bring into the discussion.

    Remember, no matter WHO Muslim Man turns out to be, either a real person, or an invention, it is the ANSWERS to the questions and comments that are important, because ANYBODY can ask the questions, but only those who are on the side of truth can logically answer them.

    J Stillwater

  195. @Muslim Man… Do you think the islamic scholars you've mentioned, in their reconsideration of the halal/haram issues, will agree on the removal of the verse from the qur'an that states:

    "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, from the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizia [Humiliation Tax] with submission, and feel themselves subdued. [Qur'an 9: 29]

    Because if that verse, and verses like it, stay in the qur'an, all those things you say I'd "be amazed" by, won't make muslims any less of a threat to their "infidel," "kafir" neighbors. As a non-muslim, I'm most concerned with that islamic "progress" which removes this qur'anic hate speech commanding muslims to be a real and continuous threat to my life, my liberty, my human dignity and my human rights. No amount of consultation with "experts from various scientific disciplines" is going to make muslims any less of a threat to me and my non-muslim neighbors as long as the qur'an tells muslims to fight, kill, or subdue and humiliate us.

    As I'm sure you're aware, if you, and muslims in general, started being honest about your intentions, and, instead of trying to sell us this fantasy about how peaceful muslims are, just come out and say that it is your goal, (because the qur'an makes it your goal), by either aggression or false offers of peace, to take over every "kafir" nation and subdue the infidel/kafir until they either are killed, converted to islam, or subdued and forced to pay a "humiliation tax" to their new muslim masters… it is HIGHLY doubtful that any of these "experts from various scientific disciplines" would participate in these "amazing" discussions you've mentioned. But muslims will not be honest and forthright. And this lack of honesty and transparency on the part of muslims, supports the theory that you have hostile intentions. Muslims are doing the same thing you've always done… you smile in the face of the host country and swear by allah you mean them no harm, and at the same time, behind your back is your qur'an, with your crossed fingers between the pages that contain the command to conquer the host country and violate the human rights of its people. Muslim Man, if I've misunderstood these qur'anic verses that sound to me like racist hate speech, please explain to me why this assessment is not accurate. (while you're thinking about your response, please try to imagine how you would feel if you were on the receiving end of the verse quoted above. Would you feel like that verse was coming from a religion of peace?)

  196. zitouni… first, I have checked your claim and I TOTALLY agree with you that whoever wrote that article added words to the end of that quote from Bukhari and I make no excuses for the misrepresentation of Bukhari. it is inexcusable. Muhammad's deeds stand on their own as a testimony against him without us having to add anything to the story.

    Let's remove Juwariya from the story for a moment. does it make the accounts you read on that page, the corrected accounts, any less sickening? No. Does the fact that Banu Mustaliq is arab, and not jewish, change the monstrous behavior of your prophet? No.

    allah's "prophet" allowed Al-Zubayr to torture Kinanah by having a fire stick twirled into the flesh of his chest until Kinanah "almost expired" in order for muhammad to extract where the treasure was hidden. Ask yourself, why didn't the "all knowing" and "most merciful" allah just tell muhammad where this man hid his treasure so he didn't have to spend his last moments on earth in HORRIBLE AGONY? HELLO??? Not only is muhammad a beast, but allah is obviously NOT all knowing. Another of muhammad's lies. All-knowing beings KNOW where you hide your treasure.

    Muhammad's rapes have been dealt with at length on other sites, so it is not necessary here to speak of safiya. What I will mention here, however, is the fact muslims say muhammad married her right away, without waiting the mandatory and commanded 3 menstruation periods (again muhammad, allah's partner, changed the rules to suit himself). This was a blatant violation by your prophet, of the very command he said he received from allah. Your prophet didn't even obey your prophet, so why should you, and why should I?

  197. If not for rape why your Prophet want that girl Juwairiya.

    Do yourself favor read dummy her story then come back to discuss it with me

  198. What kind of doll drum argument you are advancing my dear friend , can the prophet attack innocent people ,

    in anoyjer dumb fucck idiot . Go and read about Banu Mustaliq dummy before you say there were innocent

    Where is Medina and where was ,Syria ,Persia,turkey ,Spain ,did the people of these countries attacked the then Muslims of Medina.

    Dumb fucck . Muslims did not fight people of Syria , Turkey and Spain . They had fight with Byzantine which used to ocupy those countries . Byzantinians started war against Muslim and killed prophet first cousin , prophets adopted son and many Muslims. As Persia did you know dummy that Persians used to ocupy all eastern part of Arabia so Muslims just kicked out from their land , but Persian instead to realise that they were wrong they contrattacked and took what they have lost so Muslims returned , but with different objective is to destroy barbarians regime of Persia and so they did .

    Whether Jesus or Buddha attacked any people or order his follower to attack other people.

    Jesus or Bufda were not political or military leaders . Prophet Muhamed he acted like them when he was in Mecca , but once he became leader he had to take arms and defend his nation

    For our belief prophet mean's saintly person and lives in constant awareness of God conscience,he can't advocate violence ,he sacrifice his own life for his belief ,example,

    Dumb fucck. How about Moses was niot he prophet too and what did he do dummy read OT idiot

    Socrates ,Saint Peter,Jesus or else his whole life sacrifices for human guidance in non-violence and in self-less service to humans ,like Buddha and Mother Teressa.

    Red above

    Even your prophet would have claimed himself as barbarian ,history wouldn't have bothered about him ,but his act's were chieftain's of barbarians but want history to remember him as Prophet

    I do not think you know the definition of barbarians

    ,to which he is not eligible even marginally.Lastly l want you to explain us all, what is your definition of the term "Prophet".

    Muhamed was more than a prophet

  199. Evil deceiver hiding in his arab book, deceiving others who don't understand arab language. Claiming islam is peace and soon but saying and discriminating others/unbelievers as nazis/ unclean. Sick. You are hiding your rotten and evil mind in that white long dress you use, but it cant hide your crazy mind that you able to and permitt raping to 9 yo girl.

  200. So true Abid,

    knowledge vs perception or belief..

    the belief that the vioces in Mo's head are anything other than madiness is just a belief..
    the belief that the sun sets in a murky pool of water is just a belief which is madiness in todays world
    the belief that drinking camels piss is good for you.. jury still out on that one :)

  201. Sanity is a wonderful thing.. thankfully this young girl found hers before she wasted her life and the lives of others..

    the taliban who sent here do not care about her, just their own sense of power!

    pray for more sanity :)

  202. Shirk maybe an islamic term, but the concept of making yourself a god is pretty much universal..

    there is only one God and that God is our judge.. by your actions you put yourself above God.. fact is we all die and we all face our creator.. I am trying to be as conscious and truthful as possible.. you are on your own 'mystic'? journey

  203. "The idea spread and now is shared by millions. "

    huh?

    No it isn't and neither are YOU the catalyst.

    - – -

    it is the same way you promote your book. . .

    Which NO ONE even bothered to print.

    Or even wants to read!

    - – -

    Sonny – you have ego problems

    - – -

    People here mostly don't come because of you . . .

    ALL religions have their haters and opponents. . .

    They come because of their own backgrounds.

    - – -

    This is why – I have YET to come across ANYONE willing to to about your work. . .

    EVEN your disciples avoid it.

  204. I am not any leader of any country and have no clout in any government. I am an individual and my views are my two cents contribution to this debate. No one is taking lead from me and I am in no position of decision making. However, I believe in the power of ideas. Fifteen years ago I throw this idea that the problem with Islam is not the “radical Islam” there is no such thing as radical Islam or moderate Islam. As Erdogan later confirmed, Islam is Islam and that is it. The problem is Islam itself. This was just an idea from a single man with no power and no political standing. The idea spread and now is shared by millions. I throw in my ideas, just as you do and everyone else does. If an ideas is convincing more people will adopt it until it becomes the idea of the majority. If it is not convincing, it will be ignored.

  205. \”Because the hadith and the sira are replete with praise for honesty and positive track record of the Prophet, which make it extremely difficult for people to believe that the Prophet did heinous things.\”

    Islam is a cult. You should see how cultist praise their leader. I have made a good research into cults and cultic mentality and shown how Islam fits into that category. I invite you to read my book. It should be out very soon. Muslims see Muhammad through a tainted glass. I help them see him without it. Once you see him under the clear light his mystery will be removed and you can no longer be fooled.

    As for the war in Iraq, I agreed with it. The only part that I did not agree was staying to bring democracy to a people who a) have no understanding of it, b0 have no desire for it and c) have no gratitude. The objective of the war was accomplished when Saddam was defeated. At that point Americans should have come back home and let the Iraqis sort out their differences. They would have come to an amicable agreement if America was not there must sooner.

    I\’d say the same thing about Afghanistan or any country that poses a threat to America. It is not for Americans to build other nations. Their responsibility ends in defending their interests and removing the threats.

  206. @Muslim Man… look up the fallacy called: "fallacy of insufficient sample." Your post above, along with other posts you've made here commit this fallacy. Here's why:

    If you ask me a question about things you do that obey the qur'an, and then ask me if you're "obeying the prophet" it assumes that the small sample of things you've mentioned are "all" that is required to be considered "obeying the prophet." Here's why this is a fallacy: because you and I know, that in order to be considered a person who is "obeying" the prophet, you must be obeying the prophet in the entire set of commands, and not just in a select "sample" of those commands. To obey only a set of the commands, and not all, actually makes you kufar. Here's an example: If you say you don't charge interest, and yet, you also secretly are afraid to fight the infidel, then you are disobeying the prophet, because obedience to the prophet includes all the things which the prophet has commanded you to do. Do you see this distinction?

    If you say you do one, or two things out of hundreds that have been commanded by your prophet, and then, try to imply you are being obedient… it may appear you are correct, unless we study the whole set from which this "sample" of commandments is taken. Once we do, we will now have the correct number of commandments, in "addition" to the sample you have given, and only with this complete set of commandments, and a close study of your compliance to them, can we answer the question about your obedience or disobedience to the prophet. I'm waiting for the answer to my question from the earlier post.

    J Stillwater

  207. @Muslim Man… is there a particular reason you didn't answer the direct question I asked you in my post above? Here it is again (could you answer it for me?):

    You stated: "I know that slaughtering people who disagree with you is bad." muhammad slaughtered people for disagreeing with him… by the thousands (and said it was allah's idea)… and the qur'an teaches muslims to fight and kill unbelievers… are you willing to admit that muhammad did "bad" things and that allah in the qur'an commands "bad" things? If so, why are you a muslim?

    Just a quick yes or no, and maybe an explanation of your answer?

    J Stillwater

  208. Dear Ali Sina, you said everyone believed … But never has this belief been substantiated. Until now. And actually the world in general did not believe it, as it was shown by the UN investigators.

    Now it is quite apparent that you ended up operating on the basis of unsubstantiated belief. And this unproven belief, probably has led to victimization of more than one million innocent souls.

    Basically, by saying what you have said you are painting a picture of yourself which looks so similar to the ugly picture of the Prophet you have painted. That ugly picture is basically your picture. But, certainly it is not the picture of the Prophet. Why?

    Because the hadith and the sira are replete with praise for honesty and positive track record of the Prophet, which make it extremely difficult for people to believe that the Prophet did heinous things.

    The situation is the other way around with regard to the war decision makers. The President was reported that he smoked pot when he was in high school. One of the war male policy makers was involved in extra marital affair with his female staff and gave her an unjustified amount of salary, then he had to step down from his position as president of the world's largest development bank. Just recently, one of the generals has to withdraw from his position as chief of the intelligence body of the US, also because of extra marital affair. As you know, extra marital affair is about cheating. Sorry, this is not about ad hominem attack, but I am sure you can appreciate that the credential of the persons may give us ideas of the kind and quality of decisions they make.

    What's your reaction?

  209. Who is this? Any president of any country ? Any army chief ? Any sort of mafia king ? Any leader of any army? Any one from any governance ? Any one having destructive weapons ?

    Crush ?! Paralyze ?! Kill?! "We" should do this !.. "We" should be doing this !! Where are these "We" ?

    Oh Please ! Let me inform if anything is happening and I don't know !

  210. But dismissing-denying-denigrating-debunking opposing views is what YOU do all the time!!!

    And want/ intend to do!!! By misusing logical methods, but exempting your own holy texts because THEY are a result of DIVINE intervention!

    Remember; You said that it the Buraq-story was perfectly possible, but whenever Ali Sina makes a much less extraordinary claim, you are all over him, like a cheap suit!

  211. If not for rape why your Prophet want that girl Juwairiya.

  212. What kind of doll drum argument you are advancing my dear friend , can the prophet attack innocent people ,even Chengez Khan used to give warning before attacking his enemy, off course he was not the prophet.Where is Medina and where was ,Syria ,Persia,turkey ,Spain ,did the people of these countries attacked the then Muslims of Medina.Whether Jesus or Buddha attacked any people or order his follower to attack other people. For our belief prophet mean's saintly person and lives in constant awareness of God conscience,he can't advocate violence ,he sacrifice his own life for his belief ,example,Socrates ,Saint Peter,Jesus or else his whole life sacrifices for human guidance in non-violence and in self-less service to humans ,like Buddha and Mother Teressa.

  213. Joe said : proof? what is war in Lybia, yemen, mali, danfur, afghanistan, somalia, egypt, iraq, phillipines, burma, thaitland, nigeria, achia and too many countries to list..ALL MUSLIM..
    DERR and you want proof? does your mumy wipe your bum for you too?
    What are you trying to say by listing all these countries ? I do not get you . If you mean there is war going on there I did not say otherwise . If you want to say there is slave trade going on there then you have to prove it and also prove that scholars today are sanctioning this act . I do not know what the hekll is wrong with kafirs they are so dumb .

  214. @zitouni

  215. Dear Muslim Man.

    Yes I know bombing means killing Children and innocent people. But when we wage a war the only thing that matters is our survival. The allies carpet bombed Berlin. Many innocent children were killed. But that bombing resulted in the fall of the German army and the defeat of the Nazis, More lives would have been lost if Berlin was not bombed.

    Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed and tens of thousands of innocent people including children were killed. But it stopped the war. Without it the war would have continued for many more years and millions more would have been killed. The Japanese were not going to end the war. They had started it and they were sure that they are going to win. They believed Japan is protected by divine forces and no one will be able to defeat it. They had some tales to back up that belief. They had to be demoralized. They had to be shown wrong and taste the defeat. The Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing was like a cold bucket of water that jolted them to reality.

    Muslims have the same religious conviction that Allah will make them victorious. They have several verses of the Quran to bolster their faith. They have “divine” confirmation that even though they are weaker, Allah will render them victorious. That is a dangerous belief. They need to be awakened. I have said it many time. If Muslims enter in a war with the West, the only way to end it fast is to crush their faith and assurance that Allah will make them victorious. This means giving them a fast and blowing defeat. This will result in the death of many innocent children but it will save the lives of many more. I don’t believe in tit for tat. We must crush them in such a way that they cannot continue the war. The idea is to paralyze them. We don’t want to kill them. We want to save them and to do so you have to end their ability to wage war.

    If you don’t want that to happen, I suggest you leave Islam and encourage others to do the same. A weakened Islam will not start the jihad. If you really care about the lives of the people I urge you to get out of this cult of hate and join the rest of humanity. After all Islam is not from God. It is from Devil and I see no reason any good human would want to be part of a religion invented by a sociopath. Muhammad was no holy man. He was a truly evil person. No one hates you or me. This insanity is originated by Muhammad. So far it has cost the lives of hundreds of millions and more will perish because of it. But it is only an insanity.

    The world is ready to embrace us. They don’t even know that Muslims are at war with them and want to kill them. They see what Muslims do but they are in denial. This denial will eventually end and the retaliation will begin. It is up you people like you and I to stop this madness. The enemy is Islam. Islam will bring the destruction of Muslims. If you care about the lives of Muslims, get them out of Islam.

  216. I already told you my take. At the moment everyone believed that Saddam had WMD. His refusal to cooperate gave more strength to that belief. I believe he had them and send them to Syria. Now if no WMD is fond in Syria, and we may not know this soon, even after the fall of Asad. then we can conclude the intelligence was wrong. IN any case that brute had to go and I am happy he was hanged.

  217. “You will be amazed to observe those people who live just a little above the poverty line go to the mosque to pay their alms.”

    I have no doubt of that. I have seen people who can barely provide for their family give to the filthy mullahs happily. This is brainwashing. The stupidity of these people does not impress me. I feel sorry for these fools. They could use that money for their family but give it to the mullahs to use, live in luxury and to spend it for building mosques, madrassahs, and financing jihad. Zakat is paid out of piety (read stupidity) and is spent for evil causes.

    ” I do not deny there are cases where zakat or sadaqah money embezzled by the committee, but I am confident that this represents a negligible proportion.”
    How do you know? When a person is a thief he is a thief. The mullahs of Iran have stolen billions of dollars each. And those thefts are documented and you can find them on the Internet.

    It is immoral to support this evil religion even with a dime. Will you support the Nazi party? Islam is worse than the Nazi party. You can’t pretend to be an innocent person when you finance an evil cause like Islam.

    “Go to and live with the Muslims, especially with the poorest of them.”
    I have no doubt that most Muslims are sincere people. I remember my own grandmother who was the best human I even came to know. She never missed a prayer, and read the Quran even though she never knew what she was reading. The goodness of ignorant Muslims does not make Islam a good religion. Muhammad was a terrorist and a very evil man. Please do not confuse these two things.

  218. Dear Ali Sina, I suggest you experience zakat yourself. Consider having first hand experience. You will be amazed to observe those people who live just a little above the poverty line go to the mosque to pay their alms. I do not deny there are cases where zakat or sadaqah money embezzled by the committee, but I am confident that this represents a negligible proportion.

    You really have to experience Islam. Why? Because your cause is to destroy Islam, which is very dangerous, and you also have ideas of sending Muslims to the stone age by bombing them, i.e. by killing them. You are like saying that you want to save the world by destroying one-third of humanity. You feel you are smart. The people whom you call terrorist also feel they are smart. Yet your ideas and their ideas are dangerous ideas, both for humanity and for both of you. I am taking this very seriously.

    If you are a US citizen, you have all the opportunities to travel the world. Don't just stay in your library studying sirah, hadith and Quran. Go to and live with the Muslims, especially with the poorest of them. You speak Persian, then you can go Afghanistan, to Tajikistan – if you don't want to visit Iran. Since you speak English, go to Malaysia, go to Indonesia — and see and feel for yourself how Muslims in these countries live peacefully and many if not most of them believe that they are beginning to practice Islam in their lives. Consider Turkey as well. Come to these communities with no preconceived ideas, with no prejudice. Meet and talk with local scholars and people in the street.

    Please do not consider this post as ad hominem attack. I am just giving you a suggestion hoping that you will consider revising the way you look at Muslims and Islam. Why? Because you have a dangerous idea.

  219. Stupid mind is Savior of we all human's ,don't go after our predecessor,and especially this Mohammed ,he was deprived of basic reasoning faculty( virtually an animal and not the decedents of Adam and Eve). Please faith in your mind ,this is what demonstrated by that lady."Cuddo".to you babe.

  220. This is genuine thinking on the part of that girl,perhaps she may be Newton's niece in her earlier incarnation.

  221. "You can't blame ummah for response to the situation which disturb their emotional and intellectual stability"

    I certainly can and I am.If a group's emotional balance is so fickle,that they start killing people who make movies,draw cartoons or write books they don't agree with,I blame the faith that has indoctrinated them to be such heathens.

    Christ is made fun of in numerous movies,sitcoms,stand-ups.Devout christians wince,but don't burn down the production house or kill the comedian.Hindu Gods are made fun of by Hindus themselves.
    Muhammad will be made fun of,more and more regularly,and muslims 'have to' withstand that peacefully,even if they don't like it.If they behave like barbarians and turn violent,such things will continue until there are award ceremonies on "Joke of the year on Muhammad".Non-muslims are not responsible if Islam doesn't give muslims a sense of humor.

    Don't like a film,don't watch it.Don't like a book,don't read it.Write a critical review,peacefully demonstrate,file lawsuits if you can.But turn violent,and you'll get more of the same.And they'll keep coming until you learn to behave.

  222. Muslims slaughtered 80 million Hindus in the conquest of India:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Hindu

  223. Khalida Akhtar, a 20-year-old Taliban suicide bomber, decided at the last minute not to blow herself up at the main train station in the capitol of Pakistan because she remembered that she would have to deal with a bunch of virgin guys in heaven, local authorities say.
    Ms. Akhtar, who was dressed in a head-to-toe burqa and strapped with explosives, was seen just hours ago running and screaming through the Islamabad Railway Station before she was arrested by police. The young woman realized that she would have 72 virgins on her hands if she sacrificed her earthly life, and apparently the thought made her so sick to her stomach that she decided to pull the plug on the operation & give herself up to the authorities, police told reporters.
    In a statement Akhtar explained her decision. I had actually never stopped before to think about the reward I would receive for my sacrifice, Unlike my brother, I âm actually not a fan of virgins. I am supposed to give my life for a bunch of guys that dont know anything about the female body or how to please a woman? She would have sacrificed herself if she could trade those 72 virgins for two experienced guys, a masseuse, a butler, and a chef.

  224. Dear Ali Sina, based on your info I can conclude that in fact there has never been WMD — neither in Iraq nor in Syria. I remember watching TV showing a UN investigator saying in a very diplomatic way that no WMD was found in Iraq. The world was well informed about this. Yet the invasion took place. What's your take on this?

  225. One awaits the reply with bated breath. . . knowing full well what the answer will be.

    Been there, heard it and answered it. Counter-argument? No.

    This he learned from "Julia". . . and he disgusting swearing he allowed.

    When you cannot answer. Just repeat!

  226. Dear Ali Sina, so you also wanted to bomb and eliminate Muslims physically? I am sure you know that it will involve killing children and other innocent civilians. You have been saying that your quest is to destroy Islam, which has nothing to do with Muslim. Now you also want to kill Muslims. I thought you were a peaceful person ……

  227. Dear J Stillwater, there is an instruction in Quran to avoid usury in our business dealings because usury is bad. I do avoid usury. Am I obeying or disobeying the Quran?

    The Prophet said that Muslims should be good to their neighbors. I have a Christian neighbor, and a few days ago I wished him a happy christmas. I hope you agree with me that wishing a merry christmas to a Christian neighbor is a good thing to do. Am I obeying or disobeying the Prophet?

  228. Another opening.

  229. Dear Ali Sina, in Islam we have the concept of ijtihad which is a rigorous process of law forming. This process may produce alternative interpretations of those verses and may have saved lives. I believe you have to recognize this.

  230. "We don't know at what time Saddam decided to ship his WMD to Syria."

    It is NOT known whether Saddam had them or not.

    About EVERY major nation on Earth has WMDs.

    Think about it. . . it is NOT that hard to develop them.

    One guess who probably has most? And has in the past caused the most number of death by their use . . . .!

    - – -

    "The fact is that they are not in Syria and this is one of the major sources of concern for the world who wants Asad go away but fear that those WMD fall in the hands of the al Qaida. "

    He contradicts himself.

    Earlier he said – Assad had them.

    Now it is a fact he doesn't?

    - – -

    It is all going downhill!

  231. " Most Muslims are also ignorant of their religion. "

    Just because YOU were ignorant – that doesn't mean others are too.

    - – -

    "No it is not my personal experience. "

    Read his comment.

    There is NOT a shred of evidence given.

    But it isn' his experience. I agree.

    It is his HATE. . . . and lies.

    - – -

    Such views are common to acquire – the state he is in.

    This emotion has overtaken him to the extent – that his rationality has suffered.

    - – -

    This is what happened to people like Hitler and they did

    The missing piece. It is only certain amount you can blame on genes, biology and chemistry. . .

    Then there is the "upbringing" . . . Islam is JUST an excuse.

    That is why he wants to remove it at all costs.

  232. We don\’t know at what time Saddam decided to ship his WMD to Syria. The fact is that they are not in Syria and this is one of the major sources of concern for the world who wants Asad go away but fear that those WMD fall in the hands of the al Qaida.

  233. "No it is not baseless lies. It is a fact. Just Google Poverty in Iran and se…"

    If it is a FACT you learned . .. then the ADVICE should NOT be to Google.

    As that shift the BURDEN of PROOF!

    You have read it . . . YOU give the reasoning and evidence.

    Else you are lying.

  234. "Just Google Poverty in Iran and see what you find. "

    "It is a fact. Just Google Poverty in Iran and see"

    Huh? Really?

    No WONDER your disciples advocate this . . . If the master is at it.

    Why doesn't all academia just stop. . . "Oh, I believe in in a diamond shaped Earth"

    Proof?

    Just Google and see.

    - – -

    This is how your book and posts here come about . . . badly researched on the net. Actual resources never checked.

    Next post about your blog.

    This is why I pointed out. . . you create the impression of these reports . . . . quick Google.

    Exact same quote is used by others . . . same this you copy and paste.

    Deception? Yes.

    - – -

    And four year old NEWSPAPER reports. . . then don't CUT it.

    - – -

    About 46.2million were living in poverty in USA

    http://news.yahoo.com/revised-govt-formula-shows-

    - – -

    Now THINK! for a minute the stupidity of making such simplistic argument.

  235. Dear Ali Sina, investigation into the existence of WMD in Iraq was done earlier than a couple weeks before the invasion. None was found. Yet the US proceeded to invade Iraq. Why was that in your opinion?

  236. "Yes, to raise the poor children to become brain dead jihadi. There is no selfless charity in Islam. If Islam does not benefit, no dime will be spent. "

    See the lies!

    This will continue – this rabid and dogmatic stance.

    He admits it.

    It doesn't actually matter to him . . .whether he is wrong or not.

    Whether he does this:

    ""Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!" "

    Deliberate lie about someone to undermine them.

    He knows it is a lie . . . and he cannot answer for it.

    Dirtiest and the most absurd trick in the book! But it doesn't work.

    - – -

    If anyone is actually interested. Boys are RAISED as Muslims – however these people do not part-take in such "Jihads"

    - – -

    If he had BOTHERED to read . . .this particular charity actually DOES help non-Muslims.

    For example paying for marriages of Hindus and Christians.

    But of course . . . future converts!

    By this token . . . point to me ONE act of charity that can be described as self-less.

  237. "One are is for \"Those working in God\'s way (Fī Sabīlillāh)\" This is jihad. "

    It could be . . . But it isn't. Fi-Sabiliah covers charity in general.

    - – -

    " Here we are not talking about small money, but large sums of money given as bribe to politicians, academicians and newspapers in non-Muslim countries, so they become sympathetic of Islam and defend it. "

    See – this where the lying starts . . .

    He knows FULL WELL he does NOT have to give evidence. . .

    why . . . .

    Becuase his "fellows" don't demand it. . .

    And the Muslims that do . . .

    Look what he does:

    "Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!"

    That is right – build DELIBERATE lies about them.

    Then refuses to answer. Oh he has answered . . .read here:
    http://alisina.org/blog/2012/12/22/imam-husseins-

    Simple – If you are THAT into truth . . . . why does it conveniently forsake you?

    = = =

    "This is no longer needed. But during the time of Muhammad slaves were purchased so they make part of the army of Islam. The most famous of them are Bilal and Salman. "

    Right . . . more lying. Such perception and deliberate misleads ARE lies.

    - – -

    "Even when the money is spent for the poor is to win their hearts and enlist them in the army of Islam."

    ! Says it all.

    - – -

    "This army then would raid the non-Muslims. The money of zakat cannot be spent on non-Muslims who show no interest in Islam. "

    Actually Muslims were of 2 opinions . .

    1st said – It can be.

    2nd said – Only after Muslim needs are met.

    - – -

    See how the lying is build up?

    So which truth is this?

    Where is logic/rationality?

    - – -

    He knows full well . . . 1st deserving of Zakah is family, friends, community . . . etc.

    But mentioning this does him no favours.

  238. No it is not baseless lies. It is a fact. Just Google Poverty in Iran and see what you find. Iran is no Bangladesh. It has the second largest oil reserves. Every Iranian could live in opulence without working, But their money is spent in Lebanon to win the hearts of the Shiites there so they can invade Israel.

    Read this about poverty in Iran. http://www.thenational.ae/news/world/middle-east/

  239. "What if they are not misguided and you are? What if they interpret the Quran the correct way? "

    it is simple to find this out. . .

    They do the EXACT same thing you do.

    Negate opposing views by dismissing or merely ignoring them.

    The excuses dear . . .

  240. This is why I suspect "Muslim Man" to be a fraud. He creates these perfect openings for Sina.

    Who then comes to write his spiel.

    - – -

    "Apparently the information about Saddam sending his WMD to Syria is being discovered now. Now that Asad is about to fall the world is realizing he possesses a large quantity of WMD which may fall in the had of al Qaida. How did Asad obtain those weapons? There is only one way. He got them from Saddam."

    See this is BADLY thought out . .. no references no nothing. Just poor speculations.

    Here is why.

    How did Saddam get his WMD?

    1. He devloped them.

    2. He was sold to by West.

    Truth is probably both. He was given huge amount of armory. And he did develop his own.

    But so was Assad . . .

    He has been acquiring arms from China and mainly Russia. Some from France.

    He too can develop his own.

    - – -

    So why ONLY Saddam is his source?

    Guess what is LIKELY to happen.

    No one will EVER know.

    - – -

    "It makes perfect sense that Saddam may have trucked his WMD to Syria a couple weeks before the invasion and during the time the UN was pressing him to let them inspect everywhere. "

    And Our Bastard didn't use them on USA. See – how quaint and sensible!

    - – -

    "We all know Saddam had WMD. "

    Do we. . .

    - – -

    "He used them against the Kurds after the first war, when he was forced to retreat from Kuwait."

    See how he repeats the lie . . . !

    Kurds were gassed – but the full knowledge and er . . . permissibility of West – West conveniently looked away . . .as Saddam was fighting Iran.

    Kurdish Workers Party was successfully declared to be terrorists!

    - – -

    "Remember that he also sent his plains to Iran for safe keeping, which the Iranians never returned. "

    Obviously NOT – as he had been fighting them for years . . .

    - – -

    Sina once more repeats his old tale . . . AGAIN.

    He in UNABLE to discuss. . . . but repeat the lies for his new Masters.

    Hence why he is sell out.

    - – -

    When he cannot answer – is ROUNDLY "HUMILIATED"

    what does he . . .
    http://alisina.org/blog/2012/12/22/imam-husseins-

    "Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!"

    Oldest and the worst trick in the book.

    False accusations against you opponents!

  241. “Yes Aghosh – In Pakistan.”

    Yes, to raise the poor children to become brain dead jihadi. There is no selfless charity in Islam. If Islam does not benefit, no dime will be spent.

  242. \”Coming back to zakat — I really have to reconfirm that your experience regarding the use of zakat money in your former community is different from that in mine. I hope that is not really your experience, but only an allegation that you make which will require an investigation to prove it.\”

    No it is not my personal experience. I was 16 when I left Iran. At that time most educated Iranians did not give must attention to religion. They wanted to live their lives like most normal people and the country was becoming modernized and westernized. However the virus of Islam was dormant. That is why I no longer buy the charade of moderate Islam.

    I learned how the zakat is used later, when I was no longer a believer. I learned the true Islam when I was no longer a Muslim. I admit that during the years I was a believer I was utterly ignorant of Islam. Most Muslims are also ignorant of their religion. They too will leave it when they learn the truth.

  243. \”I agree with you there are people who based their atrocities on the Quran. But we Muslims consider them to be misguided.\”

    That is what I thought too, until I read the Quran and then the hadith and the Sira. What if they are not misguided and you are? What if they interpret the Quran the correct way?

  244. \”I am not sure if terrorist activities have been supported by zakat money. But that possibility does exist, and the law and regulation may play a preventative role.\”

    Yes the jihadi/terrorist activities are covered by zakat money. Please read Aminriadh\’s comment where he gives how this money should be spent. One are is for \”Those working in God\’s way (Fī Sabīlillāh)\” This is jihad.

    Another ruble is for \”Non-Muslims who are sympathetic to Islam or wish to convert to Islam.(Al-Mu\’allafatu Qulūbuhum)\” Here we are not talking about small money, but large sums of money given as bribe to politicians, academicians and newspapers in non-Muslim countries, so they become sympathetic of Islam and defend it.

    Another ruble is \”People whom one is attempting to free from slavery or bondage. Also includes paying ransom or blood money (Diyya). (Fir-Riqāb)\” This is no longer needed. But during the time of Muhammad slaves were purchased so they make part of the army of Islam. The most famous of them are Bilal and Salman.

    The slaves were not purchased because the idea of slavery was regarded as something evil. Muhammad reduced countless free people into slaves sand sold them.

    Even when the money is spent for the poor is to win their hearts and enlist them in the army of Islam. This army then would raid the non-Muslims. The money of zakat cannot be spent on non-Muslims who show no interest in Islam.

  245. Apparently the information about Saddam sending his WMD to Syria is being discovered now. Now that Asad is about to fall the world is realizing he possesses a large quantity of WMD which may fall in the had of al Qaida. How did Asad obtain those weapons? There is only one way. He got them from Saddam. It makes perfect sense that Saddam may have trucked his WMD to Syria a couple weeks before the invasion and during the time the UN was pressing him to let them inspect everywhere.

    We all know Saddam had WMD. He used them against the Kurds after the first war, when he was forced to retreat from Kuwait. The intelligence information also confirmed it. Is it logical to assume he voluntarily decided the does not need them and disposed of them? Or is it more logical to assume he sent them to Syria for safe keeping. Remember that he also sent his plains to Iran for safe keeping, which the Iranians never returned.

  246. This the reason why I believe you to be Sina's creation. From Post 1.

    - – -

    "Dear Ali Sina, sorry I combined zakat and sadaqah. Yes, there are orphanages built with money from sadaqah."

    See Zakah is limited to 8 categories:

    Those living in absolute poverty (Al-Fuqarā')

    Those who were restrained because they cannot meet their basic needs (Al-Masākīn)

    The zakat collectors themselves (Al-Āmilīna 'Alaihā)

    Non-Muslims who are sympathetic to Islam or wish to convert to Islam.(Al-Mu'allafatu Qulūbuhum)

    People whom one is attempting to free from slavery or bondage. Also includes paying ransom or blood money (Diyya). (Fir-Riqāb)

    Those who have incurred overwhelming debts while attempting to satisfy their basic needs (Al-Ghārimīn)

    Those working in God's way (Fī Sabīlillāh)

    Children of the street / Travellers (Ibnus-Sabīl)

    Wiki

    Where Sadaqah isn't limited to these 8. And is General Charity

    - – -

    Is er . . . an eventual conversion in the offing?

    - – -

    Straight after your post . . . .Sina was welcoming you! Here is another suspect lies . . . whose story doesn't add up.
    http://liberatednow.blogspot.co.uk/

  247. Dear Ali Sina, interesting. You said " … they sent (the WMD) to Syria … " . Did they know this before or immediately after they invaded Iraq? If before, why did they proceed with the invasion? If immediately after, why did they continue with the occupation of Iraq for almost a decade? Or probably they just came to know about it last year and that is why they began working on Syria last year, in whih case it seems their intelligence is really weak. Can you give me an explanation?

  248. Dear Ali Sina, sorry I combined zakat and sadaqah. Yes, there are orphanages built with money from sadaqah. Increasingly in many Muslim countries these two resources are being managed more properly in order to put them into better use. Awqaf is another potential source of wealth creation to build the prosperity of Muslims. Non Muslims are also welcome to benefit. Some Muslim countries already have laws which regulate the collection and use of zakat, sadaqah and waqf.

    I am not sure if terrorist activities have been supported by zakat money. But that possibility does exist, and the law and regulation may play a preventative role.

    Without looking at the links, I agree with you there are people who based their atrocities on the Quran. But we Muslims consider them to be misguided. There are other possible interpretations of the verses – had they consulted with other scholars.

    Coming back to zakat — I really have to reconfirm that your experience regarding the use of zakat money in your former community is different from that in mine. I hope that is not really your experience, but only an allegation that you make which will require an investigation to prove it.

  249. "Yes of course! Looks what America gets for gratitude for staying in those hell holes and trying to bring democracy to these godforsaken Islamic hells. "

    See how fond you are of repeating lies . . .

    But when this BS was challenged – NOT a peep out of you. . .

    Actually Iraq was NOT a hell-hole.

    And Afghanistan had its reason – due to continuous war.

    Saudi, Oman, Kuwait, UAE, Qatar,. . . they have done FINE and are growing – with and without oil support. And er . .. USA aid.

    Something we actually agree on. USA can take its AID – and SHOVE it where the sun doesn't shine.

    NO MUSLIM OR MUSLIM country needs it.

    It is the biggest evil going. It ENSLAVES people.

    Pakistan for instance.

    Why give aid to a country . . . whose 1billion USA took and never returned over F-16 fighter pilots?

    A country actually ABUNDANTLY rich in resources?

    Iraq?

    The monster was MADE by USA. . . . they gave him the weaponry – to fight Iran. . . .

    So why should Iraq thank USA?

    What for?

    It should give it the middle finger.

    "But they respect you when they see you are strong and smash their nose. A bully will respect you only when you have your boot on his throat. "

    He was like you – flitting from Christianity to Atheism. And Hatred of Religion.

    And he clung to all others too!

    "Weren\'t you the one complaining for America being in those countries killing the Muslims? You don\'t give a a damn that those Muslims are terrorists who kill other Muslims."

    Haven't you lied enough about me?

    More lies to the count.

    - – -

    See – when you are beaten in argument . . .

    And it is all laid bare . . . . what do you do?

    Get personal and start lying . . . EXAMPLE:

    "Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!"

    - – -

    And repeat your lies.

    I destroyed this BS before and will keep doing it.

    - – -

    As for your personal hate towards me. . .

    Well – What have I been saying all along.

    I am NOT a hate-filled person. You are.

    It is a dark emotion. . . it has taken over you . . . hence you are the darkness. And look how dark gathers around you.

  250. "
    Are you sure? Can you name a few orphanages and hospitals built with the zakat money?"

    Yes Aghosh – In Pakistan.
    http://www.minhajwelfare.org/?page_id=27

    Just one example.

    - – -

    "The Zakat money is used to build mosques, madrassaha and finance Islamic propaganda, such as publishing the Quran and giving it for free to the very people who supposedly are filthy and must not touch it. Talk about the hypocrisy. "

    No it isn't. This is YOU lying outright.

    Zakah – is for SPECIFIC purposes. See you tend to repeat lies.

    This lie was challenged previously

    You could not defend it.

    You hate and lying is SICKENING. Any decent "human" will be sickened to the pit of their stomachs.

    - – -

    "When they came to power, the poor was forgotten, Instead they started pouring a lot of money to Lebanon to finance Hizbullah and they spend it on the poor to sweeten Islam in their mouth. "

    Baseless lies.

    - – -

    "There is no real charity in Islam but there is a lot of hypocrisy. Any time the poor is helped it is never out of kindness but there is always a string attached to it. "

    Another meaningless rant. Nothing but his sick mind.

    That will build lies about individual Muslims here . . . AND Muslims as whole.

    Look here:

    "Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!"

  251. "Actually Saddam did have weapons of mass destruction. He used them on the Kurds."

    He had some mass weapons . . . Provided by the West! USA and the French played a marvelous role. They were GIVEN to destroy Iran.

    USA knew full well they were USED on the Kurds.

    Did nothing.

    The monster grew.

    - – -

    "But as Muslims their appreciation did not last long. It is foolish to expect gratitude from Muslims. They will take what you give them and bite your finger too. "

    See the disgusting deception he come up with.

    USA knew full well how Kurds were beaten by Saddam.

    – - –

    " Iraq of Afghanistan. If the people in these countries had any decency they would be utterly grateful to America."

    What the MONSTER that built the BABY MONSTER?

    Don't make me laugh. He was "Our Bastard" – He was USED by USA from Iran.

    Helping Muslims had NOTHING to do with it.

    When he got too big for his boots – USA stepped in . . . to protect

    "its interests"

    - – -

    "Look at your own thoughts. You are no rabid mad fanatic Muslim but your reasoning is the same."

    Well we know about you reasoning . . . or the lack of it.

    And how you fling this lie. . .

    look here:

    "Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!"

    - – -

    See your lying. . . . when you cannot reason – you do this to undermine Muslims . . .

    But it will NOT work but back fire.

    Despite email exchanges . . . YOU WERE UNABLE TO ANSWER.

    So why did you lie?

  252. Where do you think. Living.

    Or do you want me dead?

  253. Ali Sina said : Yes of course! Looks what America gets for gratitude for staying in those hell holes and trying to bring democracy to these godforsaken Islamic hells.

    America did not invade them to bring democracy find some dumb peron to sell this lie to. How can America promote democracy in Muslim world when they are always responsible for helping dictators to power. Who brough shah to power, who defend barbaric mafia regime in Arab word which stole 13 trilion dollars and invest it in Amwerica leaving their people in mistery and backwardness

  254. Joe said : you cannot deny that quran justifies the taking of captives
    and you cannot deny that quran justifies sex with slaves
    and you cannot deny that Mohammad had slaves and had sex with his slaves
    YOU WANT TO BE LIKE MOHAMMAD!! Deny that!!

    Prophet did that because it was norm of the day to do . Scholars are saying no Muslim can do becasue we have exchange of war prisoners

    here is a link to a man that was captured as a child in suddan and His experience in Suddan.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSEJyVyUGoA

    This is just propaganda video. There is no way I can verify that this guy is saying the truth . Plus what Muslims do is not neccesary get it from Islam, You have to shiow where islam advocate of killing innocent people.

    and here is a activist in Kuwait that argues for slave agencies and justifies them according to Islamic law https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBcpKisAsNM

    I have already said that scholars say that you can no longer do that . what this woman is saying is wrong and she is not scholar in Islam in order for you to use her as proof

  255. Joe said : Mosab Yousef is the oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a charismatic founding member of Hamas.. FACT

    The guy was looking for green card and to stay in USA and to do that he had to leave Islam and attack the religion because he knows state department needs soembody like him . He was not world renown Islamic scholor he was man who had no choice , but to leave Islam otherwise he was going to be send to Guantano bay since israel knows that he was terrorist and son of so callled Hamams terrorist .

  256. aminthemystic said : I am surprised you give go as far as saying his Arabic language is elementary. I have NOT seen any evidence to suggest it is!

    I was wrong about that . The fact of matter is that he does not know Arabic at all .

  257. @Aminriadh,

    Wheeeeerreeeeee are you, my dear ????

  258. I found many many misleading and fabricated miracles about Islam and Quran, as I continued verification. I am still finding such deceptions. I would request you to verify everything, do not go blindly. There is no miracle in Islam and Quran. Honestly speaking, don’t mind, I found Quran is worst nonsense I have ever read. Repetition, sudden end of event or stories, incomplete information and lots more. Quran never implies anything but people infer what they want to infer from this vague, incomplete nonsense book. __There is ample of events of Muhammad’s atrocious, lustful, inhuman deeds in Hadiths and Sira, even in Quran. I completely deny that Muhammad was a God’s Man. As far as belief in God is concerned, I don’t believe in any merciful, omnipotent, personal God who will account for our deeds on earth. Mainly because of problem of evils. Still my position is of an agnostic. I am an ardent fan of Bertrand Russell and Ali Sina. I think Sina is the Russell of 21st century. You must read Russell. __With lot of good wishes:__Abid

  259. __See, I could say that on this and this particular date I left Islam but this would not be true. Let me share my journey of enlightenment. In spite of that about three or three and a half years back when I was a very religious muslim, practicing everything but a good human being as well, I never hated people of any other faith or any atheist. One day when I was browsing internet, I found a heading saying Unholy Quotes from Quran, under which there were few verses of Quran, like kill Jews and Christians, infidels, non-believers. Which shocked me, but I did not believe it and on the same day I verified if that is there in the Quran which I read (Pickthall’s). I found it was there. From that day onwards I continued study about Islam, slowly slowly my hatred towards Islam grew.

  260. Since my early childhood days I had few questions in my mind which Islam and Christianity claims. Like, nothing happens without the will of God still we are punished and rewarded as per our deeds in afterlife. Afterlife is infinite, without end, Satan was condemned for his disobedience to God & was thrown in earth and he decided to mislead people, I used to think Why would we be punished for his evil act of misdirecting, why God is not stopping him from doing such a charade, why would we be punished for the disobedience of Adam & Eve. These are very simple nonsense which every child with a normal brain could understand.

  261. Your prophet received Revealations from God or Angel etc, etc. ! Where did you get this from ? What is the Proof ? Where is the Evidence ?
    Flying to heaven is perfectly possible – How can we believe it ? Demonstrate it !

  262. Where is the proof for your allegations againest Sina. You are a Die-hard Religionist. You close eyes to reality, then how you can see it.

  263. do you marry first cousins?
    do you acknowledge that this leads to high rate of deformaties?

    the west has it's own problems especially with the chemicals that are put in a food chain.

    the west has many lessons to learn and the important thing is that we all open our minds and evolve.. God is the final judge, man should focus on being the best he can be before the eyes of God rather than judging others.

  264. @Muslim Man… You stated: "I know that slaughtering people who disagree with you is bad." muhammad slaughtered people for disagreeing with him… by the thousands (and said it was allah's idea)… and the qur'an teaches muslims to fight and kill unbelievers… are you willing to admit that muhammad did "bad" things and that allah in the qur'an commands "bad" things? If so, why are you a muslim?

    Also… it would be most accurate to state that "SOME muslims MAY disobey the qur'an and behave peacefully," since the "NORM" set by the qur'an is to FIGHT. The NORM is not to be peaceful to non-believers… the norm for "muslims" (all muslims) is to fight them.

    J Stillwater

  265. your quran is a poor translation of an aramaic text..

    search aramaic quran and see that you have been lied to.. the oldest quran was found in yemen 30 years ago in yemen.. it was carbon dated and is calimed as the oldest text which is written in aramaic.. so much for your pure text

  266. @aminthe

    you quote the book of Deuteronomy which is in the old testament.. that is a book that Jesus criticised and was crucified for.. regardless is this the best you can do? you justify the violence in your own text with the violence in a jewish text..

    Tell me one place that offers the words of Jesus? the two greatest laws of God:
    1/ Love God with you heart and soul and mind
    2/ Love they neighbor as jesus taught us.. infact we should also love our enemy.. Jesus teaches that we should do everything to settle our differences before we stand before God.. God is the judge not your quran or your mohammad or you.. just get over it

  267. Dear Muslim man,

    yes infact it is what we do that is important.. If we are good people then that is what will judge us on..

    do you think that if muslims read the same quran as you and they read the passage like 9.5 which commands them to kill the unbelievers.. do you think this is a just act? do you think that muslims that go out and kill in the name of allah because of the quran, is that a good act?

    do you think that if your child or any young man should run out and martyr himself self because people like you refuse to see the violence in the quran.. does that make you as guilty as the young man because you say nothing?

  268. \”said it was based on deliberate lies and deceptions – but let me phrase it as \”inaccurate\” on the basis of good faith) that the country has weapons of mass destruction.\”

    Actually Saddam did have weapons of mass destruction. He used them on the Kurds. Now did he destroy them on his own without anyone asking him to do so? No that assumption is foolish. He sent them to Syria. Today the main concern of the world is that after that fall of Asad those weapons will fall into the hand of Muslims.

    \”I am sure you can appreciate that it is difficult for Muslims to consider the invasion was done for the good of the people of the invaded country.\”

    The majority of Iraqis are Shiites and Kurds who really appreciated the removal of Saddam at first. But as Muslims their appreciation did not last long. It is foolish to expect gratitude from Muslims. They will take what you give them and bite your finger too.

    Look at your own thoughts. You are no rabid mad fanatic Muslim but your reasoning is the same. I would would be grateful to any country that invades my country and frees it from the rulers if then they don\’t stay to colonize it. America did not want to colonize Iraq of Afghanistan. If the people in these countries had any decency they would be utterly grateful to America. But Muslims don\’t know what gratitude is and they can\’t even build a democracy. That is why I believe no country should ever help a Muslim country. Look at Kosovo. Even in Kosovo there are many Muslims who are jihadis working for al Qaida hating America. Even when you help Muslims during disaster they will never be grateful to you.

  269. \”In my Islamic community, we pay zakat to build orphanage, hospitals, etc.\”

    Are you sure? Can you name a few orphanages and hospitals built with the zakat money? The Zakat money is used to build mosques, madrassaha and finance Islamic propaganda, such as publishing the Quran and giving it for free to the very people who supposedly are filthy and must not touch it. Talk about the hypocrisy.

    There are also cases that the zakat money is spent on the poor. That is when these poor people are needed to join the army of Allah. In Iran the Muslims gave a lot of money to the poor before the revolution. When they came to power, the poor was forgotten, Instead they started pouring a lot of money to Lebanon to finance Hizbullah and they spend it on the poor to sweeten Islam in their mouth.

    There is no real charity in Islam but there is a lot of hypocrisy. Any time the poor is helped it is never out of kindness but there is always a string attached to it.

    ————
    \”We do not preach terrorism. Yet, as you know it, there are still terrorist acts by some Muslim, a very small number of them. We condemn the act. \”

    You are not the prophet of Islam. Muhammad is and he taught terrorism. Have you really studied the Quran? Where do you think the terrorists get their motivation to kill and die? This assurance that after their death they will go straight to paradise comes from the Quran.

    Please see these videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHlMvlA84ig http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embed…! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embed

    You can\’t argue that these people are wrong because they speak with the authority of the Quran.

  270. Dear infidel/kafir, your experience about Islam is different from mine. Maybe this is because we have approached it from different directions. I read the Quran and find it beautiful that its being evil is impossible. You read the Quran and conclude it is evil that it is impossible for it to contain any goodness. I have no problem with your conclusion. What matters is how much good deed we deliver to humankind —let us compete in this aspect of life.

  271. Dear infidel/kafir, my experience is different from yours. Islam has given me peace of mind. Islam has given me serenity. I think this was because we have approached it from different directions. I read the Quran and conclude that Islam is so beautiful that its being evil is impossible. You read the Quran and conclude that Islam is evil and it is impossible that Islam has even a bit of goodness. I have no problem with your conclusion. What is most relevant is whether we deliver good deeds to other human beings.

  272. \”If I were the president of the USA I would have bombed Afghanistan and Iraq back to stone age and left them alone. \”

    Yes of course! Looks what America gets for gratitude for staying in those hell holes and trying to bring democracy to these godforsaken Islamic hells.
    Muslims are the most ungrateful people I know. But they respect you when they see you are strong and smash their nose. A bully will respect you only when you have your boot on his throat.

    Weren\’t you the one complaining for America being in those countries killing the Muslims? You don\’t give a a damn that those Muslims are terrorists who kill other Muslims. That does not matter to you at all. What matters is that they are Muslims, even if they are terrorists.

  273. Dear J Stillwater, thank you for the clarification. Appreciated.

    So, you agree there are verses in the Quran that instruct people to do good deeds. The way you expressed yourself, however, gave the impression that you did not recognize the existence of such verses.

    Would you consider in your future posts qualifying your statements on Islam by citing your recognition of the existence of these verses in the Quran? I believe this will make your arguments more factual.

    Just a suggestion.

  274. Dear J Stillwater,

    I know that slaughtering people who disagree with you is bad. And you said that Muslims will continue to slaughter those who disagree with them. And you said that you don't have a notion that all Muslim is bad. I appreciate this.

    If that is the case, in future posts you may want to consider qualifying your statement about Muslims. For example, rather than saying "Muslims will continue to slaughter … " probably you can say "some Muslims will continue to slaughter … " . Perhaps I may also suggest the use of "may" rather than "will" because nobody knows what really will happen in the future. This does not mean your statement is agreeable to me.

  275. Jstillwater@let's go back in time… back before there were "white men" who wanted to "subjugate" muslims…

    You are such dumb and ignorant person . white men is much older than Islam . The Greeks and Romans were white people who ocupied N Africa and midles east .

    1.the Massacre of Banu Quraiza

    I hate to repeat myself I have already talked about this just look for it in the forum

    2.the Massacre of Khaybar
    Mentioning excecution of one person in story has made you to label it as massacre . Non Muslims become dumb when they attack Islam I do not know why . Now you do not even know the defintion and the meaning of massacre
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/massacre

    Muhammad Attacks The Jewish Settlement of Banu Mustaliq: He Captures And Rapes A Twenty Year Old Jewish Girl – Juwairiya

    Is that your source of information about islam . I wonder why you brain is full of garbage. Those people do not even know basic thing about history of islam. Banu mustaliq were not Jewish tribe , but you could not notice that because you are dumb and stupid man who would swallow anything that you read in anti islamic website .

    The Banu Mustaliq is an Arab tribe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banu_Mustaliq

    the Massacre of Banu Mustaliq

    Read again the definition of masacre because there was nothing in the story which suggest a massacre took place . Yes there was a fight like all armies fight , but hardly can be called a massacre

    Oh… and let's consult islamic histories and the qur'an references that confirm those histories… CLICK HERE (opens in new page), read the page, and then, come back and tell me why you are not sickened by what you read,

    Yes in deed I was sickened by what I read in that link and here is the proof .
    Prophet had suddenly attacked Banu Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day and raped her.

    Read the same hadith and see what it says at the end about Juwariya

    Bukhari yol 3,Book 46, No. 717
    The Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day.

    Where is the word rape in there ?? .uhmmm , tell me , You are really dumm fucck man when you keep trusting anti Islamic website who make fun of people like you

    and why you believe I should follow this man and believe he is a divine prophet from god, instead of hating him with every fiber of my being.

    I think now you should give this advice to yourself about anti islamic websites after I exposed them changing hadiths to deceive naive people like you . Ali sina does the same thing about koran
    .

  276. "9:5, Then fight and slay the Muslims wherever ye find them, "

    Yet 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."

    Quran 9:6

  277. "You don\'t see us promoting violence against Muslims. "

    Forget this "Us"

    Name this "Us" and then we will explore whether it promotes violence or not.

    Let us look at YOU:

    "If I were the president of the USA I would have bombed Afghanistan and Iraq back to stone age and left them alone. "
    http://alisina.org/blog/2012/12/07/what-happened-

    - – -

    Accepting the fact that Muslims are sub-humans who do not reason like us is so hard for the westerners to swallow that they rather deny it.

    - – -

    I mean Jews and Christians have their er . . . "promotion" of violence. So who is this "us"?

    Atheism too has it promotion of violence towards Muslims.

    So who is us?

  278. "Oh really . I have not seen you attacking your slave master when they kill innocent Muslims because you love it "

    He get around this by saying all Muslims are guilty – and HE does promote VIOLENCE.

    "If I were the president of the USA I would have bombed Afghanistan and Iraq back to stone age and left them alone. "
    http://alisina.org/blog/2012/12/07/what-happened-

  279. Dear Ali Sina, we really have a different experience about Islam in our respective lives. Really different. In my Islamic community, we pay zakat to build orphanage, hospitals, etc. We establish awqaf to build schools and commercial estates, to educate our children to be good to the neighbors, to be smart students, to train them so that they can be qualified engineers, doctors, etc. We do not preach terrorism. Yet, as you know it, there are still terrorist acts by some Muslim, a very small number of them. We condemn the act.

    However, many non-Muslim leaders do not (want to) recognize these facts. They sent their powerful troops to a weak Muslim country based on inaccurate intelligent report (many people – including non-Muslims – said it was based on deliberate lies and deceptions – but let me phrase it as "inaccurate" on the basis of good faith) that the country has weapons of mass destruction.

    I am sure you can appreciate that it is difficult for Muslims to consider the invasion was done for the good of the people of the invaded country. This war rhetoric and the invasion are just unreconcilable, especially when we realized that more than a million people, most of them innocent, were killed. And what can you expect from powerless people to retaliate? A bomb here, a bomb there. How many casualties? Quite a big number. Yet, it is much less than the number of "collateral damages" caused by the invasion. BTW, I read somewhere that the number of casualties in school shooting in the US is less than the number of US citizens who died because of acts of terrorism.

    I do not support terrorism. Let me be clear about this. And there is nothing new in what I just said.

    Now, you surely are convinced that Islam is evil. We Muslims are also convinced that Islam is good. I have seen a lot of debates in your site where Muslims try to prove that Islam is not an evil religion, which none of them satisfies you. I have no problem with that. Everyone is entitled to his/her conviction. However, let me assure you that these debates will never end – although it may be entertaining :=)) You know, I went to make ablution to pray after posting one of my responses.

    And I continue to deliver good deeds because the Prophet gave me that example. When I do things, I recite "bismillah." And I do not strike the neck of my Christian neighbor, in fact I wished him a merry christmas – I don't have a reason to strike his neck.

    So, let us find a common platform, which is practical. There are a lot of problems in the world such as global warming, poverty, unemployment, etc. I believe it wil be for the good of people in general if we use our energy to contribute to the global effort to address these problems.

  280. Ali sina said : I get my facts from the Quran and hadith. But thank you for the offer.

    You have never read koran in your life because you canot read Arabic LOL

  281. Ali Sina said :On the other hand Islam instills in the heart of its followers the hatred of non-Muslims and encourages its followers to kill them.

    Liar no such thing . If non Muslims did not attack us or drove us from our homes and do not fight us for our believe koran urges us to be nice and kind to these people

    Ali Sina said :It even promises then great reward and direct access to paradise if they are killed while killing their hapless victims.

    Ali Sina said : Liar . what victims are you talking about . Those American or zionist soldiers who are killing Muslims is that what you mean ¿

    Ali Sina said :This is truly evil. I know it is hard for you to see it so let me reverse the Quranic verses and see how they sound.

    All those verses are interpreted out of context by stupid ignorant and Muslim hater with zero credentiels on Islam and who has never read koran in his life . I will go through each one of them

    Ali Sina said :8:12 We will cast terror into the hearts of Muslims. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

    Man stop interpreting koran you are not good at it. Can you be honest at least once in your life . This verse has historical context it was revealed before the battle of Badr because when Muslim found out that Kuraich has assembled an army of 900 men Muslims got scared because they had only 300 men with light weapons so God told them that they are not going to be alone he is going to be with them during the fight helping Muslims in war effort . Gods job was to cast fear in the hearts of Mushriks in such way they are going to become coward and Muslims should finish the job by striking them off

    Ali Sina said :3:28, Let not the non-Muslims take for friends or helpers the Muslims.

    You are sick person I swear . If you had no reply to this verse when I explained to you before why you still bring it here again . do you think I will not see it

    Ali Sina said :8:65, Rouse the non-Muslims to the fight against Muslims.

    This verse was revealed to urge Muslims to fight people who were at war with them . You make it sound your slave master never said such thing in his life. How do you think they gathered people to fight his wars

    Ali Sina said :9:5, Then fight and slay the Muslims wherever ye find them,

    I cannot take it any more . you are sick person . This verse was about Mushriks who were at war with Muslims 1400 years ago and broke the treaty . Verse says slay Mushriks . Those kind of people are no longer around because they ceased to exsit

    Ali Sina said :9:14, Fight the Muslims, and God will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame.

    Same is about Mushriks in Arabia 1400 years ago

    Ali Sina said :9:23, O ye the non-Muslims take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love Islam.

    Why would you take your relatives as allies when they are in the enemy camps. They have joined people who want to exterminate us and you want Muslims to trust them, are you nuts ¿

    Ali Sina said :9:28, O ye the non-Muslims! Truly the Muslims are unclean.

    If you were front off me I would slap you on the face hypocrite . We have already talked about this verse and I caught you changing it liar and deceiver. This verse says that Mushriks are unclean

    Ali Sina said :9:123, O ye non-Muslims! fight the Muslims who gird you about, and let them find harshness in you.

    Verse was about Mushriks who were at war with Muslims 1400 years ago . What is wrong with urging your soldiers to be tough with an enemy who wants to exterminate them

    Ali Sina said :47:4, Therefore, when ye meet the Muslims, smite at their necks; At length.

    Meet them where in market , or in park ? Tell me liar and deceiver . You have habit of misquoting verses , changing them or half quoting them in order to make fun of people . The verse say until the war is over therefore the meeting is going to be on battle field stupid . And what people do on battle field during war ¿?? They dance or they drink coffee . You are such hypocrite SOB person

  282. Ali Sina said : On the contrary. We don't demonize Muslims. We explain that Muslims do evil things when they are under the spell of Islam.

    I do not know what is evil thing for you . If Muslims are fighting your white slave master because he ocupies and kill Muslims to you it is an evil thing . Your view is that Muslims should accept him as his slave master like you did otherwise they are savage

    Ali Sina said :The enemy is an ideology of deception and lies that reduces good people into monsters and terrorists.
    The deception and lies are your ways , but do not worry I will be all the time here to expose them to people who are interested in knowing the truth

    Ali Sina said :In other words we explain that the reason Muslims are acting like this is because of the disease that they have, i.e. Islam.

    They are acting like this becasue of your slave master who does not want to stay in his back yard . Vietnamese fought you master , will you say that they did that because they got the idea from Islam ¿

    Ali Sina said :It is this disease that has to be eliminated so the patients can be set free.

    The one who are sick is your slave master. Imagine you broke into my house and when I asked to leave you beat and killed my family and during the fight you get injured and when the police arrived you started complaining that I injured you , do you think police are going to listen your story NO they are going to tell you you are not supposed to be in the first place and you have no righ inside this mans house and he has the right to do whatever he wants to you if you refused to leave and they will hangcuff you and take you to jail .

    Ali Sina said : You don't see us promoting violence against Muslims.

    Oh really . I have not seen you attacking your slave master when they kill innocent Muslims because you love it

  283. " If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NA B) "

    This stands out . . .
    <a href="http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy+13%3A7-12&version=KJV&quot; target="_blank"&gt <a href="http://;http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deute…” target=”_blank”>;http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deute

    But this might be more exacting.

    7 gods from all the neighboring peoples, whether nearby or far away, from one end of the earth to the other— 8 don’t give in to them! Don’t obey them! Don’t have any mercy on them! Don’t have compassion on them and don’t protect them! 9 Instead, you must execute them. Your own hand must be against them from the beginning of the execution; the hand of all the people will be involved at the end. 10 Stone them until they are dead because they desired to lead you away from the Lord your God, the one who brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 11 All Israel will hear about this and be afraid. They won’t do that sort of evil thing among you again.

    This easier to read.

My lord Allah do right by punishing and torture you in eternal hell fire. Quran rightly says kill the monster like you who preaches false religion.

  286. @aminthemystic,

    sorry that i am sometime childish.. the reason i did it was because your name claims to be mystic, but what exactly is mystical in your claims.. It seems that are just in denial.. hence the name..

    Your comments are consistently accusing Ali Sina of hateful behviour against muslims.

    Ali Sina is offering His opinion based on references found in books that you claim are holy and the word of God..

    Are your books holy and divine? If so how can you then deny what is written about mohammad? Mohammad actually executed people.. That is HATEFUL…. Surely!

    Your quran claims that the kufar is vile and will burn in hell fire.. how hateful is that?

    Jesus and Buddha and other prophets talk about our own personal journey and how we have to earn our rights..

    all the evidence i have seen now shows that Mohammad just killed people that did not believe him.. and this is what we are seeing played out on the world stage .. over and over again..

    Do we look at the world and ask why is this happening?

  287. Keep that crap for yourself . you have no academic authority to speak about islam and you have zero credentiels on any anthing subject concerning islam . You level of Arabic language , Islam and Koran is elementary

  288. Dear J Stillwater, regarding the killing of vaccine worker, you said …"this is madness …" I cannot agree more. But that is because these people just do not understand the use of vaccine, and they believe that the use of it will destroy their religion. They need some more education from people who understand. Perhaps you know that television was still considered haram in some Muslim countries in 1950s. But this has changed now. Family planning was considered haram even in the seventies. But this has changed now. I hope you also know that there is a global effort to codify Islamic law, which, in my iew, is progressing well. The codification effort also includes reconsideration of some halal/haram issues. There are still discrepancies and differences here and there, but the scholars are working hard to address them. If you a chance to observe one of the discussions in the fiqh forums, you will be amazed by these scholars consulting with experts from various scientific disciplines before they arrive at a ruling or a fatwa. Yet all of them are referring to Quran and hadith as their sources of value and inspiration as well as the basis of their opinion.

    One of the unique feature of Islam is that the injunctions of its holy book, i.e. the Quran, is something that has to be translated into actions through rigorous ijtihad process (kindly refer to my previous response to you where I explained the meaning of ijtihad). The interpretation of Quran, therefore, evolves from time to time.

    So, again, to me this is progress. This is the emergence of Islamic civilization. You may have a different opinion, of course.

  294. Dear J Stillwater, thanks for the various clarification. And I am sorry if my asking you to be balanced was considered to be an ad hominem attack. Sorry about that.

    Now, if I may paraphrase, your definition of a faithful Muslim is one who follows Muhammad's examples. And these examples are limited to those evil acts such as killing, sex slaving, plundering, and the likes. If a Muslim does a beneficial act, even if it is instructed by Muhammad and he refers to Muhammad's instruction in doing it, he is not a good Muslim. If a Muslim does not kill, does not sex slave, does not plunder, he is not a good Muslim.

    Does my paraphrasing reflect your understanding representatively? Please correct me if I am wrong.

  295. See how a liar and deceiver works . . .

    Hence why his book is such a massive reject. Even by his supporters.

    I tried to press J_Stilwater to take up the cause for example. . . it appeared he actually hadn't read Sina's work.

    And was simply here to condemn hate. Darkness gathering darkness.

  297. Dear Ali Sina, thanks for the link. Did you have a chance to follow the debates between Rastogi and Hassan, which are published in the link? I think Hassan has given a lot of clarification regarding Rastogi's conception about Quran and the Prophet. You may want to make a rebuttal to Hassan's statements.

  298. When he cannot cope with Muslim being good people, scientist and etc . . . this is just another line of lies. Nothing more.

    The proof is in his . . . inability to go any further then these over-simplistic statements.

    Not only has he NEVER read their work . . . i even doubt he has read anything about them other than few pages on the Internet.

    - – -

    As I pointed out – before he had his personal attacks . . .

    - – -

    He doesn't need or rely on evidence or proof.

    When pressed – he does NOT answer – simply moves on. . .

    And this works. . . as those visiting and commenting –
    are NOT looking for truth.

    But just to condemn Islam. And that is it.

    - – -

    This is REGULARLY highlighted.

    When you press people on holding up to Western Standards of Enlightenment . . .

    Ah . . . .then you have excuses.

    Either Demsci – trying to Justify personal abuse – whilst maintain he is against it!

    Or that he holds giving evidence to be true and proper thing to do. . . but not doing

    And etc. . .

    See – Sina is the same.

    Hence why this darkness gathers darkness.

    - – -

  299. "I don\'t think J Stillwater believes al Muslims are bad and if he does, he is wrong. Islam is bad, Muhammad as bad, but most Muslims have no clue about their religion."

    This is well versed lie and nothing more.

    You, yourself contradict this whenever it is in your favour.

    - – -

    " They are born in it and they project their own ideal religion into Islam. For these people Islam is the religion of love, tolerance and peace and that is why they fanatically cling to it and defend it. "

    Equally it is YOU projection that Islam is EVIL – and hence you make up many lies. . . . and that is why you claim your portrait of Muslim is the right one.

    In this case your lie that those who hold Islam to be peaceful – don't know about their faith.

    But when it comes to it. . . . this is proven NOT to be true.

    When YOU cannot outsmart such people . . .

    What do YOU do . . . .

    Lie about them as well.

    Here for Instance . . . .

    ""Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!" "

    A well chosen and specific lie. Else, Prove it?

    - – –

    "The problem is that they will gradually learn the truth and get used to is. If all the truth is presented to them at once, as I do, most of them will be aghast and will leave Islam in horror."

    No you don't . . .else why are MANY lies of your exposed here. ..

    And why are you unable to answer them?

    - – -

    "I am not saying anything that the mullahs are not saying. We both agree as what Islam teaches. The difference is that I dump all that dung on the Muslim at once to shock him and overwhelm him while the mullahs use their tact and gradually feed the hapless soul with that dung and he will swallow it all but one bite at a time. "

    hate and nothing more.

    He is in PARTICULARLY nasty mode.

    - – -

    "Muhammad Zakaria Razi, Khayyam, Al Arabi, al Farabi, Abu Ali Sina, Ibn Rushd, etc. None of these men were Muslim in the true meaning of the word. "

    Again – a well versed lie.

    - – -

    " Ibn Rushed was announced as a heretic"

    Doh! So were many others . . . but Muslim STILL hold them to be Muslims.

    Ibn Rush himself DECLARED to be Muslim. In fact he was SCHOLAR of Islam . . . A jurist.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Rushd

    - – -

    "Abu Ali Sina derided the concept of Day of Resurrection"

    Yet was STILL an accepted Muslim scholar. And he did NOT deride concept of Qiyamah – as Sina portrays.

    - – -

    "Omar Khayyam was derisive of all the ideas of the next word that is so fundamental to Islam"

    Yet STILL A Muslim. And his views ARE NOT what Sina claims.

    - – -

    "Please show me one scientist who got his inspiration from the Quran."
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Khaldun http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Kindi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ab%C5%AB_Ray%E1%B8%A

    Three quick names.

    And the others . . . like Abu SIna, Ibn Rushd . . .

    By what these MEN said themselves. If you EVER had actually read any of them . . . . rather than just a quick glance at those Wiki pages.

    Even THEN you proceed to lie.

    " The Quran is a contrary to science. How can such a book promote science?"

    Despite Evidence!

    - – -

    "Islamic finances is another fallacy. "

    No it isn't.

    Just good sense.

    NO USURY!

  300. How? It’s simple! When a person who believes the Quran is the word of God and reads that the unbelievers are worst than animal, that Muslims are the best creatures, that non-Muslims are najis and filthy, that they are arrogant and obstinate and despite seeing the truth of Islam reject it deliberately out of spite, and that Allah hates them and has sealed their hearts and has destined them to hell, it is natural that he will start hating the non-Muslims. His goodness disappears and he becomes a hate monger. He then becomes paranoid thinking all non-Muslims are evil people who are against him just because he has found the truth. He then comes to believe Muslims are victims, which is a total lie, and wants to take his “revenge” by killing all those evil non-believers, specially the Jews who are prophet-killers and Allah hated them so much that transformed them into pigs and monkeys.

    Young people are impressionable (a diplomatic way to say stupid). They can fall prey to Islamic deception and that is when they become suicide bombers.

    That is how. Of course you know it too but you have to challenge every word I say.

  301. In an article titled, “Is Rumi What We Think He Is?” Massoume Price quotes Dr. Shaffiee Kadkani who wrote, “Unfortunately, the emergence of geniuses such as Rumi and other urafa (religious mystics) who unconditionally supported Ash’ariyya, did not give freedom of thought a chance. If it wasn’t because of Ash’ariyya our history might have evolved differently”.

    Price contends:
    It is not a coincidence that in Mathnavi, Rumi attacks all thinkers including atheists, naturalists and philosophers etc…. When Ibn Khadon [Khaldun] said Africans are black because of geographical and environmental conditions, it was the Ash’ariyya who ended such scientific observations by declaring people are black because God created them as such. When Physicians tried to find the connection between the brain and hand’s movements, it was Imam Muhammad Ghazzali who mocked scientific inquiry and stated “hands move because God wants them to move” (Alchemy of Happiness, Kimiyaya Saadat). It was Ash’ariyya who imposed inquisition culture that still exists today and haunts us even in North America.

  302. I don\’t think J Stillwater believes all Muslims are bad and if he does, he is wrong. Islam is bad, Muhammad was bad, but most Muslims have no clue about their religion. They are born in it and they project their own ideal religion into Islam. For these people Islam is the religion of love, tolerance and peace and that is why they fanatically cling to it and defend it. The problem is that they will gradually learn the truth and get used to is. If all the truth is presented to them at once, as I do, most of them will be aghast and will leave Islam in horror. But when the Islamic poison is given to them gradually, they slowly get used to it and see it as normal and good. Just as body can adapt to a killer bacteria if it is exposed to it gradually, in the form of vaccine, the mind also can accept evil when it is exposed to it gradually.

    I am not saying anything that the mullahs are not saying. We both agree as what Islam teaches. The difference is that I dump all that dung on the Muslim at once to shock him and overwhelm him while the mullahs use their tact and gradually feed the hapless soul with that dung and he will swallow it all but one bite at a time.

    The contribution of Islam to science and civilization is a delusion and a deception. A closer look will show that all that contribution came from men who did not believe in Islam, even though some of them called themselves Muslims to be able to survive in in that interstellar world. Who are these Islamic scientists? Muhammad Zakaria Razi, Khayyam, Al Arabi, al Farabi, Abu Ali Sina, Ibn Rushd, etc. None of these men were Muslim in the true meaning of the word. Ibn Rushed was announced as a heretic, Abu Ali Sina derided the concept of Day of Resurrection, Omar Khayyam was derisive of all the ideas of the next word that is so fundamental to Islam and al Razi openly called all the prophets to be charlatans. Please show me one scientist who got his inspiration from the Quran. Islam was an obstacle to free thinking and eventually destroyed it completely. Benighted men like al Ghazzali and Rumi left no room for rationalism and science. The Quran is a contrary to science. How can such a book promote science? Islamic finances is another fallacy. There is no such thing in Islam. Khomeini knew better. He said finance is for donkeys (eghtesad mal-e khare).

  303. As concept of Shirk is Islamic – this is rendered meaningless.

  304. Wow – what an intelligent comment.

    Getting PERSONAL now isn't.

    Like I said – you are a hate-monger.

    - – - –

    This site isn't about telling the truth about Islam . . .But the EXACT opposite.

    - – -

    You are ROUNDLY beaten in argument . . .

    what do you do?

    Get down and personal . . . .

    "Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings!"

    So are you going answer?

  305. Muslims\’ delusion has no bound.

  306. @Slave

    Islam is SHIRK … Some self proclaimed writings that were invented by Mohammad..

    You say muslims are the best.. you are Shirk..

    Surely it is God that decides and God has decided since the bgining of time.. long before the quran and without your quran..

    Submit to God first and what God has created..

    you are shirk submiting to mohammad

  307. @zitouni

    you cannot deny that quran justifies the taking of captives
    and you cannot deny that quran justifies sex with slaves
    and you cannot deny that Mohammad had slaves and had sex with his slaves

    YOU WANT TO BE LIKE MOHAMMAD!! Deny that!!

    here is a link to a man that was captured as a child in suddan and His experience in Suddan..
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSEJyVyUGoA

    and here is a activist in Kuwait that argues for slave agencies and justifies them according to Islamic law
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBcpKisAsNM

    SURELY SLAVERY IS THE MOST SERIOUS CRIME IN THE EYES OF GOD AND HUMANITY

  308. "Ali Sina has risked his life and he answers the call of the millions of ancestors that have brutialized by islam and they call for justice.. "

    No he hasn't. NOT ONCE. . . .

    When he is beaten this is what he does:
    http://alisina.org/blog/2012/12/22/imam-husseins-

    - – -

    "Yes of course! That is because they have seen the evidence many times, even in your own writings. Show me one Muslim who does not try to highlight the evil things happening in the non-Muslim world to justify the evil of the Quran. Show me one Muslim who does not bring up the crusades, the inquisition, George Bush, 1st and 2nd world wars, rapes and domestic abuses happening the the west to justify jihad, terrorism and Muhammad's rapes and pedophilia. Examples? Your own writings! The writings of Rainbow, Zeitouni, Ali (the sinner) and every one of you Muslims. "

    - – -

    See the lies and hate . . . . specif and PERSONAL hate . . .

    Now do you have an answer?

    - – -

    What brother and sisters?

    He is NOTHING more than consumed with hate.

    How many evidences of this will you ignore?

  309. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_Qpy0mXg8Y

    the man's name is Bill warner and he has many posting on youtube

  310. Ali Sina has risked his life to help educate his brothers and sisters that suffer because of islam.

    Ali Sina has risked his life and he answers the call of the millions of ancestors that have brutialized by islam and they call for justice..

    how many souls scream of for justice.. BAN ISLAM

  311. "No! I would say they are deluded Muslims. Of course I'd love them for being good people but they are good despite the Quran and at risk of learning the truth that the Quran is demanding them to hate and to kill and they may change overnight. "

    Or they are GOOD because of the Quran. Some would do evil deeds and claim Quran as inspiration. Others do good and hold Quran as their inspiration.

    Just like . . .

    Those who hold West and do good. Whilst other in its name do Evil. For example Bush and Co.

    - – -

    " By paying his zakat, he funds Islamic terrorism. "

    Here lies his lie . . . Zakah does NOT fund Terrorism. He says these htings . . .press him for evidence.

    No reply.

    How do I know?

    Previously saying and doing the same thing.

    - – -

    "You can't be a good person and a support of of the Nazi party too. "

    If we start on this road . . .

    We Muslim do NOT hold every American for the "Evil" its politicians and army does.

    - – -

    One cannot be a good person and support such evil.

    - – -

    = = =

    "Take the example of a good person who is a Muslim and he does not harm anyone, only goes to the mosque and pays his Zakat. By going to the mosque he affirms that Islam is still strong and this confirms the faith of other Muslims. That is one evil. By paying his zakat, he funds Islamic terrorism. That is another evil. Every Muslims contributes to evil. "

    Hence why every Muslim to him is guilty . . . and according to him Must be bombed into submission.

    - – -

    He will claim this is the type of this Islam is about . . . yet his method of stopping Muslims – is EXACTLY what he allegedly is against.

    One word: Hypocrisy.

  312. No! I would say they are deluded Muslims. Of course I\’d love them for being good people but they are good despite the Quran and at risk of learning the truth that the Quran is demanding them to hate and to kill and they may change overnight.

    I was witness to this in my own life. Prior to the Islamic Revolution in Iran I knew many Persians who were not Islamic at all, except by name. They changed overnight during the revolution and supported a tyrant who massacred hundreds of thousands of innocent Iranians. Of course all of them repented but that was too late. The damage was already done and up to this day their children are paying for the stupidity of their parents.

    Take the example of a good person who is a Muslim and he does not harm anyone, only goes to the mosque and pays his Zakat. By going to the mosque he affirms that Islam is still strong and this confirms the faith of other Muslims. That is one evil. By paying his zakat, he funds Islamic terrorism. That is another evil. Every Muslims contributes to evil. A good human must leave Islam. You can’t be a good person and a support of of the Nazi party too.

  313. "I get my facts from the Quran and hadith. But thank you for the offer.
    "

    Yes .. . .but the "spin" is yours. And therein lies the problem. Obviously "zitouni" has no problem with the Quran.

    Not another poor reply . . . surely not!

  314. We were discussing how the Islam relates to meanings of Peace.
    http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Pages/Myths-of-

    Here is of this site says:

    "The Myth:

    Lesser educated Muslims sometimes claim that the root word of Islam is “al-Salaam,” which is “peace” in Arabic.

    The Truth:

    An Arabic word only has one root. The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.” There is no disagreement about this among Islamic scholars. al-Silm (submission) does not mean the same thing as al-Salaam (peace), otherwise they would be the same word.

    Submission and peace can be very different concepts, even if a form of peace is often brought about through forcing others into submission. As the modern-day Islamic scholar, Ibrahim Sulaiman, puts it, "Jihad is not inhumane, despite its necessary violence and bloodshed, its ultimate desire is peace which is protected and enhanced by the rule of law."

    In truth, the Quran not only calls Muslims to submit to Allah, it also commands them to subdue people of other religions until they are in a full state of submission to Islamic rule. This has inspired the aggressive history of Islam and its success in conquering other cultures."

    - – –

    "An Arabic word only has one root."

    Yes . . . but when you get into technicality of it – this is NOT how it is. . .especially when the next sentence is:

    "The root word for Islam is “al-Silm,” which means “submission” or “surrender.” "

    No it isn't. The three letter root is S-LM

    س ل م

    Pronounced: SaLiMa

    It relates to 2 verbal nouns – which most grammarians hold to be the source of this word they are:

    Salam and Salamah

    سلام سلامة

    What they mention "al-Silm" is more a derivative rather than the root.

    Second:

    al-Silm – means Peace. And not "Surrender" and "Submission".

    Reference:
    http://www.tyndalearchive.com/tabs/lane/

    – - –

    "There is no disagreement about this among Islamic scholars. al-Silm (submission) does not mean the same thing as al-Salaam (peace), otherwise they would be the same word. "

    This is a COMPLETE lie. What scholars?

    I have tried asking. No reply.

    The logic that:

    "otherwise they would be the same word. "

    Is poor.

    You can have 2 different word or more meaning the same thing.

    - – -

    Now – YOU do not have to believe my word over theirs.

    Go and research this.

    In this case I know I am right.

    I have research and looked into it.

    - – -

    Lane's Lexicon highlighted above is a good source. As it is from Classical Arabic lexicons.

  315. \”If he wants to know fact about Islam he can ask me becasue I can be teacher of liar Ali Sina \”

    I get my facts from the Quran and hadith. But thank you for the offer.

  316. "If you encounter information is critical of what you believe, it is normal to see it as anti or propaganda. "

    Sure . . . however Sites like religionofpeace ARE propaganda.

    One cannot say the same thing about Wiki – even though anyone can make changes to it. It is the policy – they are NOT about being either anti- or pro- something.

    Religionopeace IS biased. It is owned by Fundamentalist Christians. That is their perspective.

    Their IS nothing wrong with that per se. . . . however how these site are USED & UNDERSTOOD is different from site like Wiki or any other encyclopedia.

    Stat from relgionofpeace are different than say UN Stats. . .

    - – -

    "First, it is very unusual for people who are IN a religious movement, to be critical of it… and so, you will almost NEVER get an unbiased view from them"

    OBVIOUSLY NOT!

    Why would you be critical of something that you believe in . . . . ? Just fro the sake of being critical?

    That is NOT a state in which one could live – contently.

    - – -

    "Second, it is NORMAL for people INSIDE a religious movement to call any information critical of their religion BIASED. "

    I have explained the difference. Just see above.

    - – -

    " Third, just because someone from INSIDE the religious movement calls information critical of their religion BIASED, doesn't mean it IS biased. "

    Sure – I agree.

    - – -

    "Fourth, information that is critical to a religious movement isn't automatically "NEGATIVE PROPAGANDA." If the information IS negative, one must then ask if the information is accurate, not what is the motivation behind the person bringing the information. "

    Sure – I agree again.

    - – -

    "Consider a man wants to sleep with my wife… he comes to me and says: "I saw your wife making out with the milk man." Even though his intention is to get me to divorce my wife so he can have her, his information may be valid. What matters is the truth of the information, and NOT the intentions of the bearer of that information. "

    Sure . . . however . . . . say that you KNOW this man is your enemy . . . then you would instantly be cautious then say if this person was your friend or family.

    You would still seek the truth . . . .but your reaction and actions would be very different.

    "the site: thereligionofpeace.com is a site who reports on atrocities committed on a daily basis by muslims. Remember, if muslims didn't say they were a religion of peace, that site wouldn't exist."

    Wrong!

    The site is by Christian Fundamentalists.

    It contains MANY information that is DELIBERATELY wrong.

    I am giving you an example in a separate post below.

    - – -

    "If muslims were honest, and truthfully stated to the world that they are a religion of slaughter, intolerance and oppression, they wouldn't need to worry about sites being critical of them. "

    Ha ha . . . do you NEED me to point out which logical fallacy this is . . . .

    You presuppose your answer.

    Islam ISN'T what you claim. That is simply your opinion. And that is it. My opinion is the opposite.

    - – -

    This is why people like you are brainwashed.

    You have ONLY read sites like these.

    Hence when referencing – you mainly go to them . . .

    Then when it is RIGHTLY pointed out . . . such and such site is Biased.

    Then you have to start making excuses.

    Look at what you claim above.

    Then below – you do the opposite.

    Isn't that dishonest!

    You set the standard – and you fall by it too.

  317. "as Ali Sina has pointed out he has a book and an open challenge which he offers you and you scholar to an open debate and $50k each if your prove hm wrong .. follow this link http://www.faithfreedom.org/the-challenge/the-cha…. for full details. "

    This is simply meaningless challenge.

    Sina has NO Intention of ever giving anyone $50K – as has stated. He is NEVER going to lose. Such challenges are aplenty on the net. Dogma and Rhetoric. Nothing more.

    - – -

    Actually ignoring IS the right thing to do . . . by Muslim scholars. He would otherwise seek to acquire undeserved merit by debating.

    As he already has implied – he is NOT going to admit defeat. . . despite the mounting evidence.

  318. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… If you encounter information is critical of what you believe, it is normal to see it as anti or propaganda.

    Here's why: First, it is very unusual for people who are IN a religious movement, to be critical of it… and so, you will almost NEVER get an unbiased view from them (so you must look elsewhere). Second, it is NORMAL for people INSIDE a religious movement to call any information critical of their religion BIASED. Third, just because someone from INSIDE the religious movement calls information critical of their religion BIASED, doesn't mean it IS biased. Fourth, information that is critical to a religious movement isn't automatically "NEGATIVE PROPAGANDA."

  319. Dear Joe, the presentation does not appear on my screen. Kindly repost.

  320. Please see this article. http://alisina.org/blog/2012/03/01/the-golden-rul
    I think it will answer your question.

  321. "in the world of information sharing on the internet, it is customary to cite authors and give them credit whenever possible.

The author of that information is Richard Hooker from Washington State University and he is the copyright holder of that information. "

    Actually you cite where you got the INFO form – which was from Virtual Jewish Library. . . and NOT from WSU.

    It creates the wrong impression – and is not honest.

Then your response would have been a correct rebuttal. I never made the claim that past violence excuses the west. I stated that mayhem existed in that region before there were westerners to blame for it. "

    Actually that is NOT what you said.

    You are saying it now.

    Once more a false accusation of fallacy . . .

    Here is what I said. . .

    " long before there were "westerners" who the blame could be laid upon by muslims "

    Which is no excuse for the West for its past and violence.

    And this is no straw-man . . .

    As i simply point out . . . whatever violence West commits it is responsible for it.

    Anything more you read into it . . .is YOU interpretation.

    Which I can on the same basis as you . . . .accuse you of er . . .

    "straw-maning"!

    - – -

    THINK!

    Before making accusations.

  322. Dear Ali Sina, you have found Quran and hadith teaching violence. What is your position regarding the other parts of Quran and hadith which instructed pople to do good?

    The fact that the link doesn't open is something you'll have to discuss with the webmaster of that page.

    I never claimed the information was a detailed treatment of the subject. The whole idea of an "outline" is that it is not comprehensive, but gives someone names and dates and locations upon which they can build their own study if they wish to do so.

    Ali the liar got no knowledge he is not scholar of anything about islam. The liar has zero crendiels on Islam and I have proved it here in this forum . What he write about islam is bunch of crap LOL

    Infidel kafir said : after reading the articles in this web site. This is expected . ISLAM lives by fear and death . ISLAM survives in darkness and ignorance. Knowledge & Light will dispel and destroy ISLAM ..

    Where did I threaten the mans life I just warned him to stay away from this liar and ignorant mossad and CIA agents thats all . If he wants to know fact about Islam he can ask me becasue I can be teacher of liar Ali Sina

  325. Muslim men seem to suffer enormous pressure from their families to marry a woman of their own "breed" and make Muslim babies. A non-Muslim woman will hardly be welcome into the family. I once new a 40 year-old who told me his mother was putting pressure on him to get married, and soon after he married a 1st cousin almost half his age. I wonder is that normal? This man was brought up in Europe and has a PhD. And yet he committed the insanity of marrying a cousin, even though he was well aware of the risks, being a son of cousins himself. Strong personality he has, huh? In these cultures marriage is nothing but a commercial transaction, it has nothing to do with love. Most of them plan on getting married late (after 40), after having enjoyed life to the full and committed all the "sins".
    Muslim men are definitely fruit not to eat, unless you want to get into such a whole lot of trouble that not even Allah knows where it might end!

  326. " here is an outline of islamic civilization from Washington State University."

    This is what I point out . . . dishonesty.

    The page actually open at:

    And their source link doesn't open.

    "What I call your attention to is the fact that violence and strife and bloodshed has been a part of islamic history"

    Every single Civilization on Earth has similar history.

    The trick is in . . .

    "here is an outline of islamic civilization"

    Such generalities do not equal what sum of Muslim Civilization is and was.

    - – -

    " long before there were "westerners" who the blame could be laid upon by muslims "

    Which is no excuse for the West for its past and violence.

    - – -

    " muslims afraid to look their demons in the face. "

    What demons?

  327. @Muslim Man… here is an outline of islamic civilization from Washington State University. It is an annotated timeline of events throughout islamic history regarding the development of islam as a religion and as a state entity. It discusses the conflicts between muslim leaders and tribes and if pretty much just straight forward history of events.

    What I call your attention to is the fact that violence and strife and bloodshed has been a part of islamic history since the very beginning, long before there were "westerners" who the blame could be laid upon by muslims afraid to look their demons in the face.

  328. @zitouni… let's go back in time… back before there were "white men" who wanted to "subjugate" muslims…

    Let's just go back to the time of muhammad… forget the "white man" for a moment… let's go back… back in time… 500 years… going back… 1000 years… still further back… 1400 years… back before muslims stormed Uthman's house and assassinated him… back before ali was assassinated by a muslim… back before the slaughter that resulted during the time of the Qays and the Kalb tribes… before the Abassids, back to muhammad… and back to three particular events:

    1. the Massacre of Banu Quraiza
    2. the Massacre of Khaybar
    3. the Massacre of Banu Mustaliq

    Now… let's imagine we are simply looking at a man and trying to determine whether this man is an exemplary model to follow. Let's imagine we are just looking for someone we can look to for teachings in moral goodness and spiritual righteousness… let's forget the old man that muhammad had assassinated… and the nursing mother… and the old woman torn in half by two camels… let's forget them for a moment… and just look at muhammad's behavior after the above three battles… Oh… and let's consult islamic histories and the qur'an references that confirm those histories… CLICK HERE (opens in new page), read the page, and then, come back and tell me why you are not sickened by what you read, and why you believe I should follow this man and believe he is a divine prophet from god, instead of hating him with every fiber of my being.

    A site dedicated to anti Islam propaganda. It is READ as such. And doesn't equal to independent stats . . .

    When you are REPEATEDLY only able to bring biased sites . . . this shows YOUR brainwashing.

    As I previously alluded – objective studies lead to "truth" or at least more authoritative version . . .

    For example . . . when compared to killings by West . . . the numbers stack in favour of Muslims.

    We are STILL far more "peaceful"

    - – -

    And Muslims ARE the most peaceful of people.

    Especially compared to the death toll of West and its offspring.

    Just at the turn of the century WW1 and 2 body count is shocking.

    Add that to the European colonial adventures . . . .

    What peace?

    - – -

    " This is because in islam, there is the Dar al salam, and the Dar al harb (house of war). In other words, inside islam is peace… outside is jihad. "

    Sure . . . BUT who doesn't have similar concept?

    Inside West there is peace . . . . outside they are involved with many Wars.

    Sina was pathetically waving USA stats about very proudly a week or so ago. . .

    So that is peace to you?

    At least Bush was somewhat honest – either you are with us or against us . . .

    Imperialism, Colonialism . . . .Enforcement . . . In other words . . . there is only one way.

  331. Moslem man ::: You are in a fantasy world filled with all lies, deception and dishonesty and cruelty. Read SIRA, READ HADIS, READ QQUURRAAN. See and observe and think and analyze using your intelligence and thinking power . Look at ISLAMIC culture, ISLAMIC countries, ISLAMIC history, ISLAMIC rules, sharia , etc etc. It is all cruel, evil, barbaric, hatefilled and discriminatory. ISLAM is based on fear, terror , hatred and killing., sex and slavery. all of this is true.ISLAM is a terrible, terrible religion. ISLAM does not belong in human civilization. No spiritual value in ISLAM.

  332. Abid its good to see that now you are not abusing based on your conclusions which disturb fellow Muslims intellectually, emotionally ! You can comfortably raise question which clashes with your morality or understanding. But using emotional intelligence or your own frustration to abuse, to evoke Muslims Sorry !!!

    Technically there is nothing like ex-Muslim . Its inherited from girlfriend-boyfriend drama in this generation and ex-of them.

    Lets talk about whats your new identity to be

    When you left Islam
    if you don't believe in God then you are atheist.
    If you are uncertain then you are agnostic.
    If you believe in God but don't believe Muhammad as the messenger of God then you are theist (depend on what religion you started practicing) but not Muslim

    In any way whatever you be finally, If you keep bitching, insulting, hurting with intention to damage , hammer , attack against Islam ! You will be enemy !

  333. I see that you are a real JIHADIST , and you are shivering , knowing that this Moslem man will leave ISLAM and desert it, if he reads Dr. ALI SINA's book or get real truth and knowledge after reading the articles in this web site. This is expected . ISLAM lives by fear and death . ISLAM survives in darkness and ignorance. Knowledge & Light will dispel and destroy ISLAM ..

  334. I said: "Muslims do not believe Islam or Muhammad directly from God's inspiration or command but from their forefathers' words. "
    Here you have made Belief and Knowledge one. I was talking about Belief and you are citing example of 'Knowledge'. See, Who is DISHONEST. It is you who is DISHONEST not ME.
    A Belief is inculcated not Knowledge. Knowledge is imparted. Because knowldege does not need to be internalized. A belief should be based on one's own knowledge and understanding not on forfathers or others, judged by logic, common sense, conscience and human centric morals.

  335. I am confused what I do, shall I cry or shall I laugh. When these muslims claim that even I am not an ex-muslim. As I have already said in my previous comment:
    "Better all muslims above claim that there no ex-muslims in this forum, there is only Ali Sina or ( some Jews or Christian with a name changed) is writing by changing names as different persons. Denying & Lying are the main weapons of muslims to defend Islam, else they don't have anything else"
    AMINRIADH is repeating the same thing that I am not an ex-muslim. Even Ali Sina is not an ex one. Everyone is Jews or Christians, infidels( All the enemy of Islam). Did any muslim have ever think why there is enemies of only Islam, Why everyone is enemy of islam, Jews, Christians, Hindus? I will tell you 'Why'! because Islam is the enemy of ALL.
    Pls AMINRIADH, for your Allah sake, pls tell me how are you going to believe that I am an ex-muslim.

  336. Muslim man said : I will read Mr Sina's writing hoping it will increase and improve my understanding about Islam. Mr Sina seems to be very knowledgable about Islam and about life of the Prophet, although he has failed to find one bit of goodness in them.

    Are you nuts you want to learn Islam from an ignorant person . All this ignorant knows is hate and attacking the prophet. He is liar he claimed that he read koran in Arabic and I caught him lying I got the proof of that in this site if you want to see it .

  337. Muslim man stop debating this hypocrite , liar amd racist Jstillwater you are wasting your time . He cannot even reply to my rebutall and keep bringing the same argument again and again even after I destroyed them. He is white man who wants to subjugate Muslim steal money and natural sources and meantime he is talking Muslims are planning to take the world . He does not talk about killing that his people are doing right now in Muslim world because Muslim are guilty of telling white men to stay in his back yard and thats crime for them and Muslims got to pay price for that

  338. @Muslim Man… clarification… I understand that muslims can find verses in the qur'an that give them a "source of value and inspiration." Those verses exist… and so do the verses that tell muslims to become savages. And on top of these verses… you have the tafseers, and the hadith… where muslims learn about the actions of muhammad and where they learn about his behaviors like allowing someone to be pulled in half by a camel, or slitting the throats of 900 jews in one day.

    Please remember, many of the most senior men in the most brutal terrorist organizations in the world are educated men… entrepreneurs, investors, muslim doctors and scientists, lawyers, financial mangers, etc., and they read the same qur'an you read… and they find children… show them the verses in the qur'an that talk about martyrs and how they will receive paradise filled with sex and gluttony… and they strap a bomb on them… which was built by a highly educated muslim engineer… and off they go to kill innocent people…

    The problem is not the people… it is the content of your religion… it is a jumble of contradictions and inaccuracies… it is so convoluted you need to have your own "science" to unravel it for the ummah. The problem with THAT is… the "opinions" of your "jurists" can change, as they have all through islamic history. One minute you have one who agrees with child marriage… the next you don't… and it will always be like this… it must… because all these conflicting ideas are in your qur'an to be argued over for eternity.

    J Stillwater

  339. @Muslim Man… correction… I don't have the notion that all muslims are bad… and I have no illusions about the barbarity of your "islamic heritage." The worse thing that could ever happen in the world is a return to "islamic civilization." You seem to be deluded into thinking "islamic civilization" somehow means progress. You speak of it, and then in the next sentence you speak of progressive ideas. You seem to forget that it was the spread of islam and the drive for religious conquest of muslims, that lead to the "dark ages" in human history. It was a time of ruthless slaughter of millions, the enslavement of millions of africans, slavs, and asians, the subjugation of once thriving and progressive nations (persia, babylon, egypt), and on and on. And it was only after the crusades sent armies out to kill the invading muslims and drive them back into the desert, that the enlightenment was possible. Are you claiming you are ignorant of these historical facts? None of the advancements you speak of would be possible if the crusaders had not curbed the slaughter brought by your forbears.

    Islamic heritage is the drive for conquest and the subjugation of all non-muslim peoples. Look, I'm not making this stuff up here… it is in your qur'an… and it is this qur'an that drove your islamic heritage. Why is it that muslims insist on redrafting the story of their history? Is it so abhorrent that muslims have to make up pretty stories about a period in human history that was her worst?

    Please stop trying to suggest I am somehow not being balanced, or that I am being hateful toward muslims. It is an ad hominem attack and I think it is below you. You yourself mentioned that muslims have made "mistakes of the past." I'm suggesting that these mistakes are not just "of the past," but are still with us.

    J Stillwater

  340. @Muslim Man… I don't have an "unfavorable" attitude toward muslims. I have a justified attitude toward muslims who are acting unfavorably. The problem is not muslims… muslims are people… and people are the same everywhere… the problem is islam… the destroyer of progress and civilization…

    With regard to advancements made in "muslim" countries… advancements were the norm in these countries before muhammad came along with his allah… if advancements are being made… it is in spite of islam…

    for example… these muslims are currently killing these polio vaccine workers because they "fear" that it is a conspiracy to destroy islam… you see what I mean?

    The very muslims you mention, who are working to "cure diseases" are being undermined by the very muslims they are trying to help… this is madness.

    You have assumed that I don't have "up to date" information, and then, you use this false notion to go on and suggest how I've been rendered "unable" to look at the world in a balanced manner (whatever "balanced" means)… Do you see the circular nature of this reasoning?

    Do you see this? Hopefully everybody else does.

    J Stillwater

  342. @Muslim Man… first of all… faithful muslims follow muhammad… if muslims follow muhammad… they will do what muhammad did… muhammad was not a peaceful man… he was a murderous hothead… he robbed the caravans of, and then, slaughtered his neighbors and took their women and children captive… and in many cases sexually violated the women on the very day he killed their families (click here)… He ordered the assassination of an old poet and a mother in her sleep as she nursed her newborn baby, just because they spoke against him… Faithful muslims follow the example of their prophet… Muslims are not told to be peaceful… they are told to fight, and subdue… Behold:

    "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, from the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizia [Humiliation Tax] with submission, and feel themselves subdued.Qur'an {9: 29)

    Why hide the fact that you are commanded to bring war, oppression, death and humiliation to the people around you who don't submit to your religion of madness? Why hide behind this false facade of "peace?" You are commanded in the verse above to FIGHT those who don't accept your religion, subdue them, and make them pay a humiliation tax if they don't convert to islam…Why can't you just be proud of the fact that you are called upon to kill, humiliate, enslave and oppress? Why is it so important for muslims to convince the rest of the world that they are a peaceful people?

    J Stillwater

  343. @Slave of prophet… false. Your statement is false. Muslims are NOT the most peaceful people in the world (see "thereligionofpeace.com" for the latest muslim body count). Muslims seem to think that peace is the absence of war. This is because in islam, there is the Dar al salam, and the Dar al harb (house of war). In other words, inside islam is peace… outside is jihad.

    For a non-muslim, peace means freedom and democracy, the assurance that their neighbor is not plotting to take over their country in the name of some false religion. Peace means the comfort in knowing, if I want to say muhammad did reprehensible things, I don't have to expect some nutjob coming to my house asking for a bullet in his chest.

    For a non-muslim, peace means the freedom to decide what religion to follow, and what clothing to wear, and what music to listen to, and what recreational past times to engage in, without having to worry about being beheaded by the crazed follower of a womanizing, slave owning, child lusting, caravan robbing, blaspheming, ego-maniac.

    Allah doesn't exist outside the imagination of muslims… allah is one of the idols from the ka'ba, nothing more (do you feel that anger inside you right now? That is NOT peace, it is YOU wanting to tell ME who and what to respect, which is NOT your choice to make… it is MINE). What muhammad did was establish a legacy of confusion that muslims will be fighting each other over until they destroy the world. You have to first prove that islam is true before you shove it down the throats of the rest of humanity… you have to first prove muhammad's claims that Adam was 60 cubits tall and satan lives in your nose.

  344. Dear Muslim Man,

    tell me how can i trust a man who believes that the unbeliever of your book is vile!
    How can i trust a man that believes it is ok to take captives and slaves!
    How ca i trust a person who want to be like mohammad who was a savage war monger!

    I know good muslim people, but that is because they are good people.. islam is what poisons the minds of the innocent

  345. Dear Muslim Man,

    the say the to repeat the same thing over and over again and expect a different result is a form of insanity.

    you say islam is peaceful.. but look at this presentation from a man who has studied the facts.. you will see a graphical view and the statistics of how many wars have been started by islam.. the people who have suffered most are muslims.. is that the future you want for your family? more death and destruction

  346. @aminthedenier

    once again denial of the facts.. do you think this is the path to God.. denial of truth?

    Mosab Yousef is the oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a charismatic founding member of Hamas.. FACT
    So as the oldest son of a Hamas Leader, what do you think? would Mosab Yousef have received the best Islamic instruction that was avaiable?
    the Best education available?

    but look .. sunni hate shiites who hate suffis and fight everyone else..

    the quran is not from god it is from man that is why there is so much fightings, killing and war.. JUST FACE IT

  348. @J Stillwater
    Islam means submission to the will of Allah. Muslim are most peaceful people of the world. Islam does not need recognition from Kufr/non-believers as peaceful religion because Allah himself said Muslim are best people and best creature. Our prophet Mohammed was messenger of peace and established peace all over the world by establishing Islam.

  349. Dear J Stillwater, I have a question for you. If Muslims continue to refer to the Quran and insist that Islam means peace, and they contribute to peaceful work. Will you accept them being faithful Muslims?

  350. Dear Ali Sina,

    My response was directed to J Stillwater, who seems to have a view that all Muslims are bad, all Muslims are killers; as if (?) he denies the existense of good and intellectual Muslims, who continue to achieve higher in their fields of work, and continue to stick to their Islamic heritage. You may want to clarify this to J Stillwater since he seems to have very high respect for you.

    Great ideas often begin with something many people believe to be wishful thinking. But the return of Islamic civilization to world's mainstream conversation is no longer a wishful thinking. People are beginning to appreciate the contribution of Muslim scientists, Muslim entrepreneurs and investors, Muslim thinkers, Islamic financial management, etc who continue to refer to the Quran as their source of value and inspiration.

  351. Dear Ali Sina, if Islam has hindered the development of good qualities why do we continue to see intelligent and good people among Muslims, and an increasing number of them. Did you actually mean "had Islam not hindered the development of such qualities, we would have found even more good Muslims."?

    See the bottom . . . of page two.

    it not ONE comment.

    There are several there.

    - – -

    Starting with comment saying:

    "On page four of his book, he states:

    "It is to be expected that believers would elevate the status of their prophet, falsely attribute miracles to him and make him look saintly. In the biography of Muhammad, however, we also find thousands of accounts that do not portra"

    I couldn't get the comment Id.

  362. "the "doh!" between your ears comment is an observation, not an attack… and this the "may be between your ears" as opposed to: "you have dough between your ears." "

    In that case . . . I make observations to. Or did you NOT get there. It isn't an observation and you know it.

    - – -

    "I challenged your claim… in order to challenge your claim, I must give my argument… which is: "all I encounter from you is attacks, etc." "

    Which IS your claim . . counter claims doesn't answer it.

    - – -

    "That statement about the attacks, is my challenge to your claim… which is: "you've defeated people, etc." "

    No it isn't . . . you cannot make claims as answers.

    Fallacious.

    You can challange something of mine – separate.

    Answers to YOUR claims is up to you to answer.

    - – -

    Actually – I answered . . . .

    Where i have defeated Sina.

    And I also said I have defeated YOU.

    Hence – just pointing this out is lying:

    ""sure…. on such person is YOU."

    As I said further:

    In particular . . . http://alisina.org/blog/2012/08/10/the-sound-sane….

    Arguments over his book and its methodology – which he COULD NOT answer.

    - – -

  363. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… finally… you post a link… thank you! See how easy that was? Now, the readers can actually take a look at your reasoning and see if it is sound… this is MUCH better than just saying you've defeated someone…. and it is more academic as well… because it gives references for people to quote… etc.

    Now… can you give us the link to the actual comment posts? Were you using your intense debate screen name at that time? If not… can you give me the date? I can use the date to find it on Mr. Sina's intense debate page…

    J Stillwater

  364. No – those two are excuses . . .

    "it is better for the readers who visit the site to learn how to do their own research on islam"

    Why do you assume that "visitors" don't know how to do er . . . research already?

    - – -

    Actually the above shows – you did NOT really have and argument.

    I clearly laid out – exactly HOW Islam relates to the word "Peace".

    - – -

    In the above "google it" doesn't give answer. It meaninglss.

    You could say this to EVERY argument. When you are asked for evidence, references and proof.

    Answer – just Google it.

    This is not accepted to be true.

    - – -

    Specifically in the above case it is meaningless. You tried to create an argument – where ne doesn't exist.

    I gave my answer. . . and I know what I am talking about.

  365. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… the "doh!" between your ears comment is an observation, not an attack… and this the "may be between your ears" as opposed to: "you have dough between your ears."

    I challenged your claim… in order to challenge your claim, I must give my argument… which is: "all I encounter from you is attacks, etc."

    That statement about the attacks, is my challenge to your claim… which is: "you've defeated people, etc."

    It is my practice to provide my "reasoning" up front in most cases… so… my "reasoning" for challenging your claim, is that you "always attack people instead of their reasoning… or you always say things like: "that's a lie" etc., without going on to give your proofs that it is a lie, etc… you simply make the statement… and then you go on to claim victory…

    So… for clarity… one final time… I have challenged your assertion that you have defeated people here. I have provided my REASONS for challenging your claim. I've CLEARLY stated them. I then gave you a sterling example of my reasoning using one of your succeeding posts…

    And… so that the readers can see still another example of my "reasons" for saying what I've said about your claim… behold your last post… "sure…. on such person is YOU."

    J Stillwater

  366. aminriadh/aminthemystic… actually… whenever you see me refer to google… it is for two reasons… 1.) it is better for the readers who visit the site to learn how to do their own research on islam… and 2.) it is easier.

    J Stillwater

  367. " the doh! may be between your ears"

    You claim – making such comments is er . .. attacks and whatnot – yet you do it! Doh!

    Which would make you a hypocrite

    - – -

    "Then I go on to say that all you do is attack. So, if you"

    See – you ADMIT to the charge . . .

    Yet this is clearly wrong – as I have pointed it out:

    "You said – the only thing I do is make attacks and that is it!

    I asked you to prove it.

    And you haven't. "

    - – -

    "I'm challenging your claims that you've defeated anyone… "

    Sure . . . one such person is YOU.

    Another is Sina. . . .

    In particular . . .
    http://alisina.org/blog/2012/08/10/the-sound-sane

    Arguments over his book and its methodology – which he COULD NOT answer.

  368. " as I've stated… and as can be studied at length online… just google "does islam mean peace" and you'll get both sides of the argument… "

    This is NO answer. As I have explained EXACTLY How Islam relates to peace. . .

    If you have read something . . . then post it up.

    Saying:

    ". just google "does islam mean peace" and you'll get both sides of the argument… "

    is simply absurd.

    - – -

    "There is a huge difference between saying: "being IN islam will bring you peace,""

    NO ONE HAS SAID THIS.

    - – -

    "which translates to "being IN submission will bring you salam""

    NO IT DOES NOT.

    - – -

    "and it is quite another thing entirely to say that "salam=islam,""

    Something NO ONE has said.

    I explained CLEARLY how Islam relates to Peace.

    There is NO POINT explaining it again.

    - – -

    "You can say that the dar es salam is "found within submission to allah" but you cannot say the dar es salam IS submission to allah… do you see the difference here? "

    huh? Worng. Dar es Salam is reference to Islam the religion.

    I have explained this above.

    - – -

    "Another example is the fact that in islam… there is the dar al islam… which means "house of islam.""

    In other words – Islam is "House of Peace"

    - – -

    "There is "dar al harb" which mens "house of war" etc. These all are references to islam… "

    NO this is WRONG.

    "dar al harb" is NOT a reference to Islam. No one says Dar al-harb and mean Islam.

    - – -

    "islam is submission… so… there is a "house of peace" found in the "house of submission…" etc. "

    Actually Islam the word means Submission. Verbal noun of Aslama – form IV of Salama

    Islam technically is reference to the religion.

    So is Silm and Dar es Salam. Where as Islam means Submission.

    These word mean Peace. [Linguistically]

    - – -

    "Exegetical fallacy… google… happiness… "

    In other words . . . NO ANSWER.

  369. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… the doh! may be between your ears… here's why I say this…

    My actual statement, which you can find a this link is as follows:
    "I paid your page a visit the other day, because I wanted to see if I could substantiate your claim that you've been answering people's accusations regarding islam. What I found was what I expected to find."

    Then I go on to say that all you do is attack. So, if you compare my original post with your quote of my later post above… you will see that they are regarding the same thing… I'm challenging your claims that you've defeated anyone…

    J Stillwater

  370. "see what I mean? this is how you always respond… I say I'm writing an article… you ridicule the time it takes… that is an appeal to ridicule…"

    No it isn't.

    Appeal to ridicule is . . .

    "is an informal fallacy which presents an opponent's argument as absurd, ridiculous, or in any way humorous, to the specific end of a foregone conclusion that the argument lacks any substance which would merit consideration."

    Wiki.

    Asking after the time and questions it would take IS NOT ridicule . . . it is ASKING for time!

    I am NOT ridiculing you. Your writing an article which ANSWERS questions YOU set to your own self . . . has NOTHING to do with me.

    - – -

    "if a person says they are writing an article… the best thing to do, especially when the person has said they are taking time to write it well (remember I said I was going to disappear for a while), is to give them that time… but instead… you commit the fallacy of appeal to ridicule by ridiculing the time I am taking… do you see this is a fallacy in reasoning? "

    Nope. As what ARGUMENT are you answering . . . . look what appeal to ridicule ACTUALLY Is . . .

    "is an informal fallacy which presents an opponent's argument as absurd, ridiculous, or in any way humorous, to the specific end of a foregone conclusion that the argument lacks any substance which would merit consideration."

    So which argument have I ridiculed?

    You saying you are writing an article and hence you are asking question – which I am too afraid to answer . . .

    IS NOT AN ARGUMENT.

    Fallacies RELATE to an argument.

    You promised ARGUMENTS – KILLER ARGUMENTS . . . which HAVE NOT MATERIALIZED.

    Instead – you claimed to be writing an article!

    And THAT only after being pressed for an answer. . . which I thought was coming.

    - – -

    "It's like when a person says they're going to give you a gift… and you keep poking them in the ribs saying: So, where is it huh? huh? where is it? did you really get me a gift? Huh? Can you see how this is childish behavior?"

    False analogy. . . as there is PRELUDE to this gift giving promise . . . it is NOT the same thing.

    You are apparently writing this killer article in refutation . . . .about a discussion.

    Then you bothered me with questions. . . .

    Which could be endless . . .

    SO – I have asked for answers . . .

    Which you claim is Suddenly . . .ridicule of you?

    Why?

    - – -

    "I've already sent a portion of the article to Mr. Sina for his remarks, which he gave me, and I'm continuing… don't worry. When I'm finished, you'll know. "

    See where you started from . . .and where you are ending up to!

    THAT is what is truly ridiculous.

  371. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… as I've stated… and as can be studied at length online… just google "does islam mean peace" and you'll get both sides of the argument…

    There is a huge difference between saying: "being IN islam will bring you peace," which translates to "being IN submission will bring you salam" and it is quite another thing entirely to say that "salam=islam," which is just not accurate. You can say that the dar es salam is "found within submission to allah" but you cannot say the dar es salam IS submission to allah… do you see the difference here?

    Another example is the fact that in islam… there is the dar al islam… which means "house of islam." There is "dar al harb" which mens "house of war" etc. These all are references to islam… but none of them IS islam… islam is submission… so… there is a "house of peace" found in the "house of submission…" etc.

    Exegetical fallacy… google… happiness…

  372. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… see what I mean? this is how you always respond… I say I'm writing an article… you ridicule the time it takes… that is an appeal to ridicule… and is a classic fallacy… here's why…

    if a person says they are writing an article… the best thing to do, especially when the person has said they are taking time to write it well (remember I said I was going to disappear for a while), is to give them that time… but instead… you commit the fallacy of appeal to ridicule by ridiculing the time I am taking… do you see this is a fallacy in reasoning?

    It's like when a person says they're going to give you a gift… and you keep poking them in the ribs saying: So, where is it huh? huh? where is it? did you really get me a gift? Huh? Can you see how this is childish behavior?… I have entertained the notion that you may indeed be someone in your early teens…

    When a person is writing an article… that means the article is not finished yet… so… to suggest they post an unfinished article online is again, immature… I'm not writing the article to "silence you." You're a bit full of yourself there pal… I don't take this as a joke, as you seem to… for me, this is about stopping people from killing other people, and throwing acid in their faces… and shooting schoolgirls on their school buses… etc… and I take it very seriously…

    I've already sent a portion of the article to Mr. Sina for his remarks, which he gave me, and I'm continuing… don't worry. When I'm finished, you'll know.

  373. " @aminriadh/aminthemystic… sometimes I think you post here just to create endlessly long pages of text for people to have to read through… in the hopes that they will give up and won't be exposed to the very reasonable arguments presented here… "

    You make the attacks . . . I answer.

    This is the game playing you come up with.

    Poor.

    - – -

    THEN you attack me for making counter attacks!

    Inspired hypocrisy – no.

    - – -

    "I simply said you always say this but I've never seen your proof"

    Read the comments . . .

    - – -

    "I made no "false allegations" against you… I said you make statements all the time about how you defeated this person or that person… which is completely true… I simply said I never see proof of it… which is also completely true… "

    Nope sonny . . . here is what YOU actually said:

    "
    I made a statement… accusing you of doing nothing more than attacking people.."

    Doh!

    Now you have changed your story . . .

    So you do NOT have to answer the above.

    - – -

    You said – the only thing I do is make attacks and that is it!

    I asked you to prove it.

    And you haven't.

    - – -

    HENCE you made it up.

    Then you started off with making this attack:

    "ometimes I think you post here just to create endlessly long pages of text for people to have to read through… in the hopes that they will give up and won't be exposed to the very reasonable arguments presented here… "

    See . . this is AN ATTACK

    A LYING ATTACK . . .

    - – -

    The comment before:

    "which you seem to have shed for some reason… maybe things got too hot with that name and too many people took you to task and your imams told you to shed the name, lest it lead people to posts that could cause them to leave islam… who knows."

    it was this attack.

    Which I answered.

    - – -

    Then you made the next attack.

  374. "with regard to your snide, yet ineffective quip about my sources… as I've stated before… it is not important where information comes from… what's important is whether it is true or false…. "

    As I pointed out – THEN I am NOT replying to YOU – But to the source.

    An I am PERFECTLY within my rights to point this out.

    There is NOTHING wrong with it.

    And I did NOT dismiss the "source" either.

    So. . .

    "with regard to your snide, yet ineffective quip about my sources"

    Is dishonest.

    - – -

    "So, your comment about where I get my information is an ad hominem attack (attack the person instead of their logic)"

    huh? This is NOT what ad hmoinem is . . .neither have I committed it.

    As it is apparent – I DID ANSWER.

    And why do you completely forget using biased source is a fallacy?

    - – -

    "one of your favorites."

    A BASELESS attack!

    - –

    " for good measure… and to create a red herring… you attack the person… you clever rascal you…
    "

    Out and out lies and attacks . . .

    And THIS is attacking ME

    rather than the argument!

  375. "hmmm… that's strange… after I accused you of committing an exegetical fallacy, I could have sworn I went on to explain why… hmmm…. must be my Alzheimer's flaring up again… where were we? Oh yeah… I remember… exegetical fallacies… "

    Where?

    Do point it out . . .

    In fact – WHY didn't you point it out.

    Then I would have had to apologize.

    If you can point it out – I will eat humble pie and apologize.

    - – -

    But you said above:

    "they are two different words… and you have committed what is known as an "exegetical fallacy." "

    And after this I was expecting a how . . . which would've linked to whatever you wrote above this.

    - – -

    "I understand what you are trying to explain here… many muslims have tried to explain this in this way… but it just doesn't hold true… in the two examples you gave above… the word is submission… not salam… سلام "

    Where? Who else has tried to explain it this way . . .plase point it out.

    - – -

    "Again… just because a word is derived from a root (in this case SLM), it doesn't mean the word has the same meaning or connotation… "

    NO ONE has claimed this . . . only that in Semitic language there is a LINK back to the original root. And a reason as to how the derivative links back to the original root.

    Sometimes the link is obvious – sometimes it isn't.

    NO ONE is denying that the word Islam – DOES NOT mean "Submission".

    It does –

    However . . .

    Two other references:

    Dar es Salam

    and Silm

    Both meaning "Peace" refer to Islam the religion . . HENCE Islam is linked to Peace and in this way means "Peace"

    I have explained this in detail now. And it is NOT that hard to understand.

    - – -

    "Yes… Dar es salaam is used "in reference" to islam because Dar es salam is one of the divisions of the world of islam… in other words… there is the "house of peace" which is within islam… "

    Which "IS" Islam . . . not merely within.

    "both refer to islam… but we wouldn't say islam is war, would we… well… you wouldn't. "

    In this case obviously not. As Islam is referring to being "Peace" – so it is rather obvious meanings of war or other things are useless.

    - – -

    "The "house of peace" reference is referring to one of the divisions within "the world according to islam." "

    That Islam is Peace.

    - – -

    There is also the additional reference of Silm.

    So the reference to Islam meaning peace are 2 different ones.

  376. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… sometimes I think you post here just to create endlessly long pages of text for people to have to read through… in the hopes that they will give up and won't be exposed to the very reasonable arguments presented here…

    The reason I say that is, you are asking me to give proof to something when the burden of proof is on you…

    You made a claim… the claim that you have defeated Mr. Sina, Julia, Myself and others on this site. I simply said you always say this but I've never seen your proof… you made the claim… I challenged it because I never see your proof… you have two choices… you can say: "Well J Stillwater… that's your opinion and you're welcome to it…" or… you can post some proof of your claims… in the earlier case… you would appear to be defeated, since you have made claims that you're not willing to instantly back up with proof… in the latter case… you would appear more credible and others would be able to see how and under what circumstances you spanked your opponents…

    I made no "false allegations" against you… I said you make statements all the time about how you defeated this person or that person… which is completely true… I simply said I never see proof of it… which is also completely true…

    J Stillwater

  377. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… with regard to your snide, yet ineffective quip about my sources… as I've stated before… it is not important where information comes from… what's important is whether it is true or false….

    Even if I never come up with ONE original thought… but I provide the correct information… it doesn't matter my level of knowledge… or yours for that matter… what matters is the truth of the information… regardless from where it comes…

    So, your comment about where I get my information is an ad hominem attack (attack the person instead of their logic)… one of your favorites… and yes… sometimes you attack the logic… and then, for good measure… and to create a red herring… you attack the person… you clever rascal you…

  378. "your admonition creates the illusion that I am uninformed… which you have not proven… and then, you go on from that false conclusion to recommend I fix the problem you've falsely concluded… do you see the circular nature of this reasoning? "

    You claimed stuff previously – which turned out to be wrong. . .

    THEN you went wild . . . . said all sorts . . .

    HUGE claims . . .

    Which you NEVER answered . . . .

    Hence – you are NOT informed.

    - – –

    "It is a textbook case of begging the question… because… in your conclusion "the useful thing for you to do is… STUDY" you have place one of your premises: i.e. "you have not studied enough…" It's like asking the question: "when did you stop beating your wife?" You see how that assumes I've beaten my wife? "

    No son . . .this is YOU deceiving . . . . YOU are trying to forgo that you have a HISTORY.

    Remember Remember – The Big Declaration . . . that never came?

    - – -

    " A.) Ali Sina's information is inaccurate… (a circular argument, since you have not proven it)."

    Nope – I have ASKED you to make an objective study . . . .and compare.

    Here is what I said:

    "Why don't you start off with reading up on Sina's book.

    And write up an objective analysis. . . by comparing to the actual sources?

    Read few of his "articles"

    Check them out . . . . check out his sources. . . .

    And then write up . . . . "

    Where in the above is it . . . that implies that the conclusion WILL come to is that Sina is wrong. . . and write about that?

    I actually leave that open. And my other comment will confirm this.

    Where I say – Whatever position you have AFTER an objective study – at least you will have authority behind you.

    See – you choose to make up things . . . .

    An idiotic and absurd lie.

    - – -

    " If I take your advice I will uncover the flaws in Mr. Sina's writings"

    Nope – If YOU take my advice – rather than implying that you HAVE read Sina's work . . . . you WILL have read it.

    Then rather than SPEAKING in generalities – you will be able to give specific EXAMPLES.

    Hence – I later expounded on this . . . in another comment.

    Also . . . then whatever you position is you will be able to speak with authority.

    - – -

    "Finally… you keep saying I have lost something… I don't remember being in a debate with you…. I made a statement about muhammad… I said he committed adultery (and I've added to that accusation the sin of blasphemy)… and I said I would prove it… as part of that proof…"

    Load of all hoo-ha. . .

    You went of . . . you made SEVERAL comments that you were going to reply . . .

    But you DID NOT.

    I entertained you for a while . .. and GOT bored.

    There are SEVERAL of your comments available here. I had Ali as witness . . who then went off to watch movies on Netflix!

    - – -

    "I'm writing the article… answer to that question would certainly speed things along because it would allow me to skip that step in the article… but alas… you're afraid to answer it… "

    More lying . . .why would I be er . . . afraid of answering?

    And are you going to JUST keep asking more and more questions . . .

    How many?

    Where will they lead?

    How long is it taking you write an article?

    Where is it?

    Is it online?

    Can you PUT it online to SILENCE me?

    No?

    Why Not.

    Yes . . .

    Then – an easy solution is WordPress.

  379. @aminriadh/aminthemystic…. hmmm… that's strange… after I accused you of committing an exegetical fallacy, I could have sworn I went on to explain why… hmmm…. must be my Alzheimer's flaring up again… where were we? Oh yeah… I remember… exegetical fallacies…

    I understand what you are trying to explain here… many muslims have tried to explain this in this way… but it just doesn't hold true… in the two examples you gave above… the word is submission… not salam… سلام

    Again… just because a word is derived from a root (in this case SLM), it doesn't mean the word has the same meaning or connotation…

    Yes… Dar es salaam is used "in reference" to islam because Dar es salam is one of the divisions of the world of islam… in other words… there is the "house of peace" which is within islam… and there is the "house of war" which is outside islam… both refer to islam… but we wouldn't say islam is war, would we… well… you wouldn't.

    The "house of peace" reference is referring to one of the divisions within "the world according to islam."

  380. "see what I mean? You're pretty funny actually. Let me show you why I say that… let me give you an "example" regarding my statement… "

    I know I am – thank you for confirming and saying it.

    Actually I gave you the answer – which perfectly SIMPLE . . .and reasonable.

    Second – that NAME is still there. And I STILL intend to use it. . . .

    I am logged on to WordPress for creating this site:
    http://exposingsina.wordpress.com/

    "Okay… now I don't know about the rest of the group… but I don't see anything in these responses other than attacks"

    Ha ha ha . . . see how untruthful you are . . . ha ha . . .

    This is an attack:

    "You don't actually answer people's accusations… what you do is tell them they are wrong… and that's the end of it… or you attack them… and that's the end of it… They say "A" and you say "nope…" and that's the end of it…. "

    So you attacked me . . . I answered.

    And you claim I answered with the ABOVE . . .

    And I did NOT do/say similar to this:

    nyway… instead of you coming back and saying… "I invite people to click my name and look at the post from such and such a date…"

    YET – I also said:

    "If you were truthful . . . you would present examples . .. "

    "Actually – that is attempt to shift burden of proof . . . which is fallacious. "

    To which YOUR REPLY was an answer to . . .

    YET – you clearly lied when you said this:

    "Anyway… instead of you coming back and saying… "I invite people to click my name and look at the post from such and such a date…""

    - – -

    YOU made false allegations against ME. . . . I asked you to prove them . . .

    What do you do?

    Claim that I just attacked you. . . .

    And that is it.

    Whereas I didn't . . . .

    I asked YOU to prove what YOU claimed . . .

  381. "The point is not that there are no intelligent and good people among Muslims but that Islam hinders the development of such qualities. "

    This contradicts what you have said before.

    So why make such statements?

    And answer this . . .

    "The point is not that there are no intelligent and good people among Muslims but that Islam hinders the development of such qualities. "

    How?

  382. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… thanks for the advice on Mr. Sina… your advice begs the question… which is a fallacy… here's why… your admonition creates the illusion that I am uninformed… which you have not proven… and then, you go on from that false conclusion to recommend I fix the problem you've falsely concluded… do you see the circular nature of this reasoning?

    It is a textbook case of begging the question… because… in your conclusion "the useful thing for you to do is… STUDY" you have place one of your premises: i.e. "you have not studied enough…" It's like asking the question: "when did you stop beating your wife?" You see how that assumes I've beaten my wife?

    You are seeking to create for the readers here the false picture that: A.) Ali Sina's information is inaccurate… (a circular argument, since you have not proven it). B.) If I take your advice I will uncover the flaws in Mr. Sina's writings.. (another circular argument since it concludes, without any proof, that there ARE flaws in Mr. Sina's writings…)

    Finally… you keep saying I have lost something… I don't remember being in a debate with you…. I made a statement about muhammad… I said he committed adultery (and I've added to that accusation the sin of blasphemy)… and I said I would prove it… as part of that proof… I asked you to answer a question… which you avoided it… I'm writing the article… answer to that question would certainly speed things along because it would allow me to skip that step in the article… but alas… you're afraid to answer it…

    "What Dar es Salam" means is "house of peace," and has nothing to do with submission. "

    Islam is the nomenclature – the word in TECHNICAL terms refers to the religion.

    The linguistic meaning of it is – submission.

    Similarly Dar es Salam – is a reference to Islam.

    Both reference the same thing.

    - – -

    "they are two different words… and you have committed what is known as an "exegetical fallacy.""

    No I have not . . .

    And it is NOT very clever just to name a fallacy and accuse the person of it.

    - – -

    "Notice that all these words are derived from the same root… so… following your reasoning… Salam (peace) and (Salama – the tanning of leather or the sting of a snake) mean the same thing, which they obviously do not. "

    Which is NOT my reasoning . . .but yours.

    Which you have wrongly been applying.

    I have explained it above.

    - – –

    "For more on this subject, see the following link: http://wikiislam.net/wiki/The_Meaning_of_Islam&qu

    This actually adds nothing new.

    All it says is that Islam means submission

    And that it refers to the religion.

    - – -

    However in a roundabout way they explain the same thing I do.

    In technical terms Islam refers to the religion.

    The word means in linguistic terms "submission".

    For example – consider these 2 sentences.

    قبل اسلام

    He accepted Islam

    كان اسلامه امام شرطة حقير

    His submission in front of police was despicable

    - – -

    Both Silm and Dar es Salam refer to Islam – and both mean peace.

    That is one way how they link to Islam.
    http://www.tyndalearchive.com/tabs/lane/

    Another way is the link of root with its derivative.

  384. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… see what I mean? You're pretty funny actually. Let me show you why I say that… let me give you an "example" regarding my statement…

    I said all you do is attack people and that's the end of it… and minutes later you post the very evidence I need… and in fact… in your post you ask for an example… so… I will use the very post in which you ask for an example…. since it is a PERFECT example to use…

    I made a statement… accusing you of doing nothing more than attacking people… I mentioned your link… the link on your aminriadh screen name… which you seem to have shed for some reason… maybe things got too hot with that name and too many people took you to task and your imams told you to shed the name, lest it lead people to posts that could cause them to leave islam… who knows…

    Anyway… instead of you coming back and saying… "I invite people to click my name and look at the post from such and such a date…" you came back with:

    "A lie – and it comforts you"
    "if you were truthful you would present examples" (I am)
    "actually – that is attempt to shift burden of proof… which is fallacious" Huh?
    "see how untruthful you are?"

    Okay… now I don't know about the rest of the group… but I don't see anything in these responses other than attacks… and by the way… How can I be shifting the burden of proof? You're the one who made the claim over and over again that you've somehow defeated people in debates here on this site… I challenged your claim… the burden of proof is on you… hello??!!

    A lie – and it comforts you.

    If you were truthful . . . you would present examples . ..

    "So… I'm not sure where all the posts are where you say you've defeated all these people… but it isn't on your intense debate profile…. and I invite anybody to go there and see the proof… "

  386. @aminriadh/aminthemystic… actually, your post is not correct. What Dar es Salam" means is "house of peace," and has nothing to do with submission. It is a different phrase altogether… For example, I can write: Dar es Islam and it would mean: "house of submission." Even though the words are derived from the same root… they are two different words… and you have committed what is known as an "exegetical fallacy." Behold the following list. Notice that all these words are derived from the same root… so… following your reasoning… Salam (peace) and (Salama – the tanning of leather or the sting of a snake) mean the same thing, which they obviously do not.

    Islam اسلام Submission
    Salam سلام Well-being/Peace
    (Derivation of) Salama سلما The stinging of a snake or the tanning of the leather
    Saleema سليما To be saved or to escape from danger (when refering to a female)
    Saleem سليم To be saved or to escape from danger (when refering to a male)
    Aslam اسلم To submit
    Istaslama استسلاما To surrender
    Musal مسل Undisputed
    Tasleem تسليم To receive a salutation or becoming submitted

  387. \”I hope that will change with time, and with the increasing ability of Muslims to show the world that they are indeed good people who deserve the world\’s respect.\”

    I am afraid that is a wishful thinking. I too that the same hopes, but they were shattered when I studied the Quran and learned about the life of Muhammad and his companions. Islamic savagery is rooted in Islamic teachings and in the examples set by Muhammad.

    You are assuring us of the existence of of a few Islamic scientist and philanthropists as if we denied that. Human species is a single race. Smart people, good people, stupid people and evil people are found all over the world. The point is not that there are no intelligent and good people among Muslims but that Islam hinders the development of such qualities.

  388. @aninriadh/aminthemystic… nice to hear from you again… I thought you were ignoring me… I was becoming worried…

    You'll notice, if you click on your intensedebate link, I paid your page a visit the other day, because I wanted to see if I could substantiate your claim that you've been answering people's accusations regarding islam. What I found was what I expected to find… I've actually been following you on here pretty closely… so I've seen what you've been posting…

    You don't actually answer people's accusations… what you do is tell them they are wrong… and that's the end of it… or you attack them… and that's the end of it… They say "A" and you say "nope…" and that's the end of it….

    Muslim Man on the other hand, answers questions… Zitouni answers questions… no-name answers questions… you on the other hand… don't. So… I'm not sure where all the posts are where you say you've defeated all these people… but it isn't on your intense debate profile…. and I invite anybody to go there and see the proof…

    Oh… and I'm very familiar with Mr. Sina's arguments… I hold many of the same opinions… opinions which I have come to on my own… through my own study…

    Now… how about the answer to that question I asked you all those days ago about the ten commandments?

  389. "the word "islam" means "submission." The Arabic word for peace is "Salam." It is an exegetical fallacy to say that Islam means peace because it is similar to "salam." They are two different words… just like "cat" and "scat" are two different words. "

    Semitic languages are "root" based languages and direct derivatives always have some links with the root word.

    Islam DOES mean "Submission".

    But it is linked to Peace by two way.

    Dar es Salam

    Quran 10:25 6:127

    - –

    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ادْخُلُوا فِي السِّلْمِ كَافَّةً

    2:208

    Silm – a variation of Salam

    it means "peace"

    these two are direct references to Islam and they mean peace.

  390. "it would be easier for me to believe islam were at least partially true if muslims didn't continually skate around the answers and give answers to questions that were never asked"

    Actually this is standard practice for people like you to claim such thing.

    It is VERY easy to expose.

    Because there are claims such as the above. . .

    BUT

    PROOF – will be missing.

    = = =

    And I would like to take this opportunity to remind you – YOU LOST.

    Hence – the useful thing for you to do is . . . STUDY.

    - – -

    Why don't you start off with reading up on Sina's book.

    And write up an objective analysis. . . by comparing to the actual sources?

    Read few of his "articles"

    Check them out . . . . check out his sources. . . .

    And then write up . . . .

    Here is how to get a free decent blog:
    http://wordpress.com/

  391. Or in other words . . . . it doesn't matter

    Else . . .do you have an answer?

    Why is Sina roundly "humiliated" and defeated in these comments sections.

    - – -

    People talk about Sina's work being true . . . but they cannot actually speak with examples.

    Hence they have either NOT read it.

    Or counter argue.

    So this talking is nothing more than HOT AIR!
    - – -

    You certainly cannot –

    You have your own BS – that you could NOT protect. . .

    Then you went WILD

    Stating you were going to prove this and that . . . . .

    It didn't come.

    - – -

    OBVIOUSLY – you feel small.

    So . . . rather than that . . .

    Why don't go off and do some learning.

    In fact – I actually RECOMMEND

    Go and read Sina's book!

    Start from there.

    Then read about Islam – compare what the book claims and what the actual Muslim source are saying.

    Therein lies your answer. . .

    The thing is whatever side you choose. . . . you will have some authority behind you.

    " You could have the satisfaction of getting his site shut down and at the same time you could win $50,000. "

    Hence meaningless lying rhetoric . . . that is all this $50K thing is.

    It sounds good. PR. Standard issue challenge. . . . there are quite a few around the net.

    - – - –

    "Heck, you could just post here in the comment section your finding in the arabic… showing that Mr. Sina is mistaken… but you have not once done this. I wonder why not… "

    I have son . . I have.

    Straight afterwards . . . rather than answering.

    He called me a liar.

    Issued a challenge.

    And then walked away . . . .

    He has issued another challenge.

    So we will see.

  392. "muslim prince"

    This is how little lies start.

  393. "there's a reason you don't see muslims defending you here."

    huh? I am NOT the one in need for defense. How strange your mind is . . .

    and how shameless. . . . still no BIG declaration!

    See the absurdity of your claim above . . .

    "It's because they have no rebuttal to the arguments presented here, but, the visitor numbers at alexa don't lie… muslims are here… and they certainly NEED to be here"

    Doh! Which arguments. . . I have er . . .rebutted EVERY single one. Hence why would anyone be supporting me?

    - – -

    "and here you are, defending all the things I've just mentioned as if any of them were true or even possible… claiming your superior intelligence and belittling those who pin you into a corner… "

    See how shameless and liar you are . . . .

    You are the one who ran . . .

    Ha ha ha ha . . .. a rather "easy" victory.

    Why is it you people come out with SO many lying false accusations – then when asked to prove them – you simply go to pieces.

    - – -

    People have their own intelligence . . . . and they can see through the likes of you.

    You lost . . . and badly.

    It is NOT my problem.

    You shouldn't have made things up.

    Then starting to claim . . . . you were going to come back with HEAVY answers. . .

    NONE have yet materialized.

  394. "Some Muslim countries are already performing better economically than non Muslim"

    Oil doesn't really count – however the states ARE playing smart – like Qatar Oman Kuwait Dubai.

    The investment in education is amazing. And standards are rising.

    If Iran wasn't that way it would lead them all in education.

  396. Brother, when say things like this you kind of affirm that the other person has got you by the "bollocks"*.

    * Apologies for the word.

  397. Demsci,

    I get the impression you don't actually know what Abrogation is about. It one of those buzzwords like Taqiyah that people say it in hope but don't really know what they are talking about.

    Ali Sina will say it 100% wrong so why mention Bill Warner. At least he is just saying 60%.

    But Warner does not have expertise in this field. He doesn't come from an objective stand. His views should be read as such.

    It is no that only expert views that matter but in the context above, why mention Bill Warner?

    Just by mentioning another such name is not going to make much difference.

    This is the thing. Islamic theology has strong basis, principles and laws. And it is bound by them.

    This is why there is huge gap between Amateur and Academic discourse related to Islam.

  398. Shouldn't you be able to understand this language? So translate.

  399. How? I have over 300 first and second cousins but only one relative has 2 wives. So what is your explanation for "higher" birth defects in some Western countries?

    I am a evolution biology student Imperial – so see if you can answer?

  400. If a muslim, in say, sudan… goes into a village, kills the men, as muhammad did… and then… enslaves the women… distributes them among the fighters (as muhammad did regularly)… and they take these women into their tents… rip their clothes off… stop… and say… hey… is this reprehensible behavior? Is this "a perversion?" Muslim Man, on alisina.org says it is… so maybe I should consult the qur'an… He opens to 4:24, and then to 23:2-3, and then to 70:22-30… reads it… and what is he told? He is told Muslim Man is wrong on this issue…

    Sudan war is not considered to be jihad becasue the war is between Muslims . What you have stated in those verses is concerning jihad situattion 1400 years ago when there were no UN or human right organization. so what is happening in Sudan is wrong on both grounds . You are really too dumb person you swallow everything you read from anti islamic website

  401. the word "islam" means "submission." The Arabic word for peace is "Salam." It is an exegetical fallacy to say that Islam means peace because it is similar to "salam." They are two different words… just like "cat" and "scat" are two different words.

    Not in all cases . The word appeared in koran where it means peace

    IMuslims are not told to coexist. They are told to conquer, and extort jizia "protection money" from the conquered.

    Where do you get your information about koran interpretation ? this shiown you have been reading too much propaganda

    In the qur'an, muslims are told to wage jihad until the world is islamic… this leaves no room for peace… because there will always be people like me on the outside of islam, and there will always be murderous factions on the inside of islam…

    You are hypocrite and dishonest man . The verse which says fight only who fight you we talked about it and you run like rabits becasue I defeated you

    Muslims will continue to slaughter people who disagree with them, and have laws in the shariah called "blasphemy laws" that ensure people like me are killed with haste. Muslims will even kill innocent people to vent their rage (see Benghazi).

    You have to see what koran and Islam says and not what Muslims are doing .

    I don't need to visit muslim countries to see muslims first hand… they are in my country… and are ANYTHING but peaceful… muslims are ungrateful, whining agitators who want everything THEIR way… and want to change our customs and practices to suit THEIR islamic ideology. Muslims did not create this our country with the blood and sweat and dreams of generations… and now… as always… they want to move in and take what they did not earn… They are an ungrateful guest who now seeks to be master of the house.

    I do not know where you come from , if you are from Europe I will show you how Muslims shead their blood to free you

  402. You mentioned that not every muslim is obliged to go to war… according to the qur'an, every muslim is called to jihad…

    when there is war those who are qualified should fight

    in all of its aspects… all the time… until the world is completely subdued under the domination of islam

    Wrong. Koran says fight those who fight you and I have already explain that to you and you keep repeating the same argument here this shous that you are hypocrite

    .

    Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know. (002:216) Khan

    Nothing wrong about that . They have hijad too where you live I am sure you got an army in your country

    When you say "go to war," your statement is not accurate… because muslims are always "at war" with the kafir… muslims are always fighting to overthrow the rest of the world… this is why islam is a violent religion…

    Who ocupies territories of who. we ocupy somebody else land or you do . how could you make this stupid statement when USA ocupied Iraq and now Afganistan old fashion ocupation and they ocupy Arab countries moder ocupation

    it must be violent… muslims must kill… maybe you don't like to kill… but you are commanded by the qur'an to support those who do… you are commanded to have just as much blood on your hands as they do… because you are called upon to give them all the support they require to achieve their goal…

    You are sick and ignorant . There is no comnand in koran for muslim to must kill for no reason

    What a horrible world the muslims are creating for our children,

    the world is horible becasue white men who do not want to get rid of slave master mentality and not because Islam . Muslims are living in their lands they have not ocupied your land you are the one who is doing that . Very funny from your part you ocupy and kill and meantime you cry out help Muslims are barbarians

  403. Muslim Man… Thank you for your answers… and yes… in fact… you muslims DO practice the enslavement of prisoners of war and you still DO engage in the taking of sex slaves… in fact… you are one of the ONLY groups of people on the planet who still does… and this is according to the United States State Department Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report. http://www.state.gov/j/tip/rls/tiprpt/

    There is nothing in that link about Muslims taking slaves. lets asume they do we have Muslims who engage in fornication, drinking alcohol and many more which are forbiden things in Islam .

    where i'm not asked to kill other people),

    Why cant you use your mind and tthink dummy . If Koran asks Muslims to kill non Muslims how can you explain to me the existence of Millions of non Muslims in the Muslim world , it just does make sense to me

  404. can you show me where "scholars" are saying that it is no longer halal to take women as prisoners of war? How can "scholars" go against the sunnah of their prophet?

    Sheikh Kishak I heard him saying since today we have exchange of prisoner of wars which something did not exist back then you are no longer allowed to take women as prisoner of war and have sex with them

    Also… you said "people who invented slavery have changed their behavior so muslims can no longer take women as prisoner of war…" So… by this logic… when the people "change their behavior" is when muslims change theirs? Are you saying that human decency is based on what other people do?

    Muslims were forced to treat prosoner of wars as slaves because the enemy was engaging in that kind of practuse long before Islam . It was the enemy military policy and Muslims were not in business of changing his policy so they have to play with the same rule otherwise you will be subjecting your army to be defeated and lose the war .As soon as these people changed it we were happy about it .

    In other words, muslims don't hate things just because the things are reprehensible? They change their tune based on what "others" decide is acceptable behavior? That's what your post means… why wouldn't muslims continue to take slaves regardless of what other people see as normal? Why wouldn't muslims say no to slavery, even if everyone around them is saying yes to it? What is the matter with muslims that they cannot see the insanity in these things? Above, you stated the the qur'an "allow you to have full sexual relation with her." How nice! Who gives the qur'an the authority to have sex with a woman against her will?

    Allowing means that sex will not considred to be fornication and also it does not mean to rape and who told you it was against her will ?

    What the hell gives a muslim the right to take this woman captive and then rape her?

    Thats war and blame her people for declaring war on Muslims

    Muhammad raped his captives. His companions wanted to practice coitus interruptus just so they wouldn't impregnate them and lower their value at auction… please don't beguile us with tales of protecting these women's human rights… that is a lie. The reason you muslims say the things you say about it is because it is an embarrassment for you to have to explain muhammad's savage behavior.

    Read hadiths again you are just ignorant and you have been reading too much anti Islamic website lately LOL

  405. J still water said : YOU KNOW muhammad and his raiders had sex with the captive women on the very night they were captured… in the soldier's tents… and NOT living in their homes… and this was a regular occurrence and in fact, it was one of the things muhammad promised his soldiers as an enticement to get them to go on raids with him (please ask me to give proofs… PLEASE)…

    Before I comment on that I I would like to see from where did you get this .

    J still water said : They had sex with them hours after they had slaughtered their husbands and fathers… sometimes on the very same day! How can you equate this behavior with the United Nations? Raping female prisoners is not protecting their HUMAN RIGHTS!" You and Muslim Man know full well that this is true… and yet, you avoid just being straight and saying, yes… muhammad raped his captives… period. Be proud of your prophet… don't try to skate around the issue by trying to make it look like humanitarian efforts… they killed the men… and enslaved the younger boys and women and girls… and then, many times the same day… they raped them… proudly proclaim the fact that he and his soldiers captured women and forced them to have sex with them on the very day they killed their families… Be proud of it.

    As I said having sex with captured women in Arabia culture on those days was never considered to be rape . I do not know from where did you get the idea from. Does it mention the word rape in the narative ? do you have witenesses statement of being raped ? . You are judging 1400 years ago culture with today standard and this is stupid thing to do . They have consual sex with their women . Prophet was clear about treatment of prisoners of wars . did you read hadiths concerning that or you just swallowed what you were told by anti Islamic site and come here repeating the word rape , rape , rape . here are some hadiths

    Your servants and your slaves are your brothers. Anyone who has slaves should give them from what he eats and wears. He should not charge them with work beyond their capabilities. If you must set them to hard work, in any case I advise you to help them.

    ‘Others’ includes all people, so also slavegirls ! Raping a slavegirl is clearly doing her harm (emotional and physical) which would be a big sin for a muslim to commit and violation of the above hadiths .

  406. also, your answer about Jihad is not completely accurate either… the qur'an clearly states that fighting in the way of allah is for the spreading of islam…

    Qur'an (8:39) – “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.”

    Them refer to idolators and if they cease meaning if they stop attacking you and persecuting and not if they cease worshiping other gods because it says later if the return meaning they return to old habit then you should know Allah is with you . Did you check tafsir or you just got this information from anti islamic website and swallowed it

    Ibn Katir said :

    (And fight them until there is no more Fitnah…).'' Ibn `Umar said, "We did that during the time of the Messenger of Allah, when Islam was weak and the man would be tried in religion, either tormented to death or being imprisoned. When Islam became stronger and widespread, there was no more Fitnah.'' When the man realized that Ibn `Umar would not agree to what he is saying, he asked him, "What do you say about `Ali and `Uthman'' Ibn `Umar replied, "What do I say about `Ali and `Uthman! As for `Uthman, Allah has forgiven him, but you hate that Allah forgives him. As for `Ali, he is the cousin of the Messenger of Allah and his son-in-law,'' and he pointed with his hand saying, "And this is his house over there.'' Sa`id bin Jubayr said, "Ibn `Umar came to us and was asked, "What do you say about fighting during Fitnah'' Ibn `Umar said, "Do you

    I didn't ask if the qur'an mentions the hijab or burka as required… I said isn't it required under shariah law… and the answer is yes… it is.

    You are very funny man . what do you think sharia law is derived from . Koran is the most important source of sharia law then second is hadith third is works of scholars.

    Since you go on to say that you support shariah law… you are implicitly stating that you agree with killing apostates and you agree with women wearing the hijab and burka by law…

    Read above .

  407. L_stillwater said : I never asked what muhammad did or didn't do… I asked if Muslim man supports the sharia law that calls for the death of the apostate. which by the way… was a false answer… according to bukhari 83:37… behold:
    "Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate."

    First what we have is not quote of the prophet we have somebody relating something which prophet did and he was not an eye witness to it . Lets assume that this happened and prophet killed somebody . Did you use your mind becasue it says that person deserted in another word he defected and joined the enemy during war and thats treason punishable by death even in modern law .

    Here is another hadith

    One of them from Sahih al-Bukhari (Vol. 9, book 83, number 17) says, “Allah’s Apostle said, the blood of a Muslim, who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims.”

    It says he left the Muslims , but in Arabic version it says he left the group
    . It means the person not only apostate , but he defected the Muslim camp during the war as well and thats what got him capital punishement

    The eminent modern Islamic scholar Allama Yusuf al-Qardawi also comes to the conclusion in his book Jareemat ar-riddah wa al-Murtadd (Crime of Apostasy and Apostate, published by A-Risalah Foundation) that we should not confuse the issue of killing of murtad with freedom of conscience guaranteed in the Qur’an. Qatl-e-Murtadd can be valid only if there is some serious threat to Islamic state or social order. Thus it can be applied only in special circumstances and should not be confused with freedom of conscience. Freedom of conscience cannot be compromised as far as principles of the Qur’an are concerned.

  408. Dear J_Stillwater, I am sorry that you have developed such an unfavorable attitude towards Muslims. I hope that will change with time, and with the increasing ability of Muslims to show the world that they are indeed good people who deserve the world's respect. Some Muslim countries are already performing better economically than non Muslim ones, a very small number of Muslims are already winning science prizes, Muslim philantropists are already working with non Muslim ones to cure diseases in Africa and Asia. Probably this good news did not or has not reached you. It seems to me you are not so up to date in this regard that you maintain your suspicion and other unfavorable attitudes against Muslims, and this has rendered you being unable look at the affair of the world in a more balanced manner.

  409. Dear J_Stillwater, I would say that was the rule of the game in those days — fifteen centuries ago when the Prophet was still alive. When I said it was a perversion, I meant when it was viewed from the practice of modern international law/convention. Sorry for the lack of clarity. Muslims have also progressed in their law. The second Caliph was noted for his innovation, where he made something that was allowed during the life of the Prophet to become haram/forbidden. And he made lawful actions that were not even done by the Prophet. Islamic law is dynamic. It ceased to be dynamic when someone powerful stated many hundred years ago that everything under the sun was already regulated under Islamic law, and no further innovation/ renewal was needed. That probably was the beginning of the decline of Islamic civilization. I know that in one Muslim country slavery was only forbidden in the sixties. I have a friend who could still remember having a slave.

    Now Muslims have progressed a bit. We are reforming our laws, which in doing that it only requires us to return to the excellent practice of the old such as in the area of legal formulation, which has the following structure: sharia, and then fiqh, and then law.

    First, there is Sharia, which is the words of God revealed through the Prophet.

    And second, there is fiqh, which means understanding the words of God. This is not any kind of understanding developed by just anyone like me, whose knowledge about sharia is severely limited. This understanding is achieved by a 'fuqaha' (Islamic jurist) through a rigorous, deep and long thinking process which involves consideration of many factors including contemporary development in other parts of the world, and which takes him to forming a thesis. We call this thinking process "ijtihad."

    And the third is Islamic law, which is the end product of ijtihad.

    Islamic law in all over the world is being reformed through the renewed process of ijtihad, which is disciplined and scientific. And in the process we learned from and let ourselves be influenced by non Muslims. We send our scholars to non Muslim countries. But we continue to stick to our Sharia.

    Your example of Sudan, which I am not familiar with, might be true, for which I am genuinely very sad. But, again, this is because of backwardness. You may want to visit Khartoum and talk to Islamic scholars there and ask what they think about it. I am sure all of them will condemn the act with the strongest word they can find in their Arabic dictionary. But Islam is not monolithic, you might still find scholars who support the act by relying, exactly, on the verses you quoted above.

    Kindly note that Muslims have learned a lot from non Muslims even in the early days of Islam. The pioneering Arab Muslims did not know how to govern a country, and they benefited from the Persian's skill of statecraft. They benefited from the Jews. They benefited from the Christians, from the Hindus, from the Chinese, etc. But then came the age of complacency and decadence, which took Muslims down. I am happy to share with you that we Muslims in many parts of the world are actively working to rectify the mistakes.

  410. @Muslim Man… the word "islam" means "submission." The Arabic word for peace is "Salam." It is an exegetical fallacy to say that Islam means peace because it is similar to "salam." They are two different words… just like "cat" and "scat" are two different words.

    A thing is judged by its fruit. If someone tells me their religion is "peaceful," I expect to find harmony, and peaceful coexistence. Muslims are not told to coexist. They are told to conquer, and extort jizia "protection money" from the conquered.

    In the qur'an, muslims are told to wage jihad until the world is islamic… this leaves no room for peace… because there will always be people like me on the outside of islam, and there will always be murderous factions on the inside of islam…

    Muslims will continue to slaughter people who disagree with them, and have laws in the shariah called "blasphemy laws" that ensure people like me are killed with haste. Muslims will even kill innocent people to vent their rage (see Benghazi).

    I don't need to visit muslim countries to see muslims first hand… they are in my country… and are ANYTHING but peaceful… muslims are ungrateful, whining agitators who want everything THEIR way… and want to change our customs and practices to suit THEIR islamic ideology. Muslims did not create this our country with the blood and sweat and dreams of generations… and now… as always… they want to move in and take what they did not earn… They are an ungrateful guest who now seeks to be master of the house.

  411. Dear Muslim Man,

    I know what you say is true.. "Dear Joe, frankly, violence was not what I heard from my father who taught me Islam"

    I have meet and discussed God with many Muslims and there are many good people.. But the more i learn about the life of mohamad and the history of islam, it has become more and more clear that it is islam that poisons the minds of the innocent and muslims are the ones that suffer most under islam..

    here is a talk by a man who was raised as a muslim prince and see what he has to say
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHq25tnZoFs

  412. very simple

    one man plus many wives = lots of first cousins
    soceity where lots of men have many wives = lots and lots of first cousins

    first cousin plus first cousin = high probability of deformaties
    siple enough for you to understand?

  413. @Muslim Man… I want to go a bit further on the topic of what is made lawful to you by allah regarding sexual slaves…

    You have called the actions of your prophet, and his companions, "a perversion," and yet, you still follow him. By following muhammad, you are implicitly sanctioning what muhammad did… because you are still a muslim, in spite of the fact that your prophet, according to you, practiced, and sanctioned "a perversion."

    If a muslim, in say, sudan… goes into a village, kills the men, as muhammad did… and then… enslaves the women… distributes them among the fighters (as muhammad did regularly)… and they take these women into their tents… rip their clothes off… stop… and say… hey… is this reprehensible behavior? Is this "a perversion?" Muslim Man, on alisina.org says it is… so maybe I should consult the qur'an… He opens to 4:24, and then to 23:2-3, and then to 70:22-30… reads it… and what is he told? He is told Muslim Man is wrong on this issue… he can indeed rape them… because they are given him by allah as the spoils of war… they are his possessions… he hesitates… because this goes against his moral compass… then… he remembers muhammad… and he goes ahead and rapes this poor woman… and further shatters her crushed life… then he sells her to another… and why is this happening? Because allah says he can, and nobody, ABSOLUTELY nobody, including Muslim Man can prove anything has changed since muhammad's time.

    Muslim Man, sexual slavery is not a perversion in islam. It is your right as a muslim.

    J Stillwater

  414. @Muslim Man… thank you for your reply… I want to focus in on something you wrote… you stated:

    I can say that sexual assaults to women and even making women sex slaves can happen during war, even in today's war. But this is a perversion. I believe this is a violation of the war convention ratified by so many countries already.

    You've stated that sexual assaults and making women sex slaves "is a perversion." You go on to state that the war convention, agreed to by "so many countries" sees these practices as a violation of an agreement not to practice these crimes.

    Now… what we can gather from the above: these practices are reprehensible… "so many countries" agree… even you agree, and called them "a perversion."

    Here's the problem… this "perversion" is granted by allah in the qur'an itself. You can't put yourself, and your morals above the words of your prophet… the highest example of muslim behavior. According to muhammad (i.e. allah)… these practices ARE NOT perversion… they are gifts from allah… behold:

    O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war… [Quran 33:50]

    They are your possession… you own them… and can sexually violate them.

  415. Dear Sakat, I am grateful for your prayer. Likewise, I wish you all the best in your search. May Allah give you resilience and happiness in your effort to discover Him. May Allah open His door for you to approach Him. Sometimes the door is not necessarily located at a regular place, it may not be next to the window, but keep on trying, and you'll find Him, inshallah — I don't know where and when.

    Regarding your request, unfortunately I am not able to speak authoritatively about the essence of Islam. I am still learning about it. If I have time, I will read Mr Sina's writing hoping it will increase and improve my understanding about Islam. Mr Sina seems to be very knowledgable about Islam and about life of the Prophet, although he has failed to find one bit of goodness in them.

  416. "Yes you can quote and criticize my book. I am doing the Quran all the time. "

    The only problem being . . .I can er .. . easily refute your lies.

    Hasn't happened other way around has it.

  417. "For that you in the end depend MORE on Revelation than on Reason. "

    It doesn't quite work like this. Quran isn't a massive book. And not all of it is rules.

    Hence there are ONLY few absolutes.

    As you say:

    "Aminriadh, you are Muslim, and by choice."

    Yes by choice . . .hence the reason to choose is reason itself. So reason tends to underpin revelation and NOT the other way around.

    - – -

    "While you very much, depend on Reason, this METHOD, in your attempts to refute, rebut Ali Sina, who admits to be human and flawed and faulty. So I say you use double standards towards Allah and Quran and Ali Sina and his book. "

    You just say it. What method. . . you are strangely VERY vague about it.

    You always are – I have asked you oh – so many times. You evade – or make excuses.

    - – -

    "So I say you use double standards towards Allah and Quran and Ali Sina and his book."

    Which I don't – as explained above.

    - – -

    "So I for one would like nothing better than for you to start comparing Quran and Ali Sina's book. "

    Something which I offered to do. In reply to Sina!

    - – -

    "For if you use the same universally, generally used logical, reasonable standards, METHOD, then either we will see you downsizing the Quran or upsizing Ali Sina's book. "

    Or the other way around . . .

    - – -

    "Because; Just how is the Quran better than Ali Sina's book? Suppose the writers, Allah and Ali, were reversed? Is the Quran more clear, more true, more substantiated with evidence, more scholarly, more moral, less hateful, less faulty, less incomplete? "

    In every way . . .

    Here is a good reason:

    Keep you eyes peeled!

  420. Dear J Stillwater, jihad is not laways the same as war. As I stated in my previous response to you, it also means seriously pursuing an objective through hardwork. War, which is something of the last resort, is only one of them and is basically for self defence purposes. Islam means peace, and we do promote peace. Islam does not mean violence, and we do condemn violence.

    Regarding the burning of the Quran, I was wondering why these people had to burn it in the first place? I am sure they knew that there were a group of other people (i.e. Muslims) who would be offended by the burning of the Quran.

    Dear J Stillwater, no, Muslims are not supposed to kill. We are a bunch of peaceful people. Do visit our countries. You will find Senegalese who are very soft and welcoming. You will find Muslims in Southeast Asia among the most hospitable people in the world. Have you experienced Arab hospitality?

    Yes, there are vice and crime, there are looting and rapes in our countries, so are there in other countries. And just like in other countries, there are courts of law to dispense justice to these criminals.

    We Muslims support justice, although there are injustice rulers in the Muslim world with the blood of Muslims and non Mulims on their hands – but we do not support such leaders. Are there Muslims who support such leaders? Yes, there are, in which context I can safely say that these leaders are also supported by non Muslims. These are all politics, the wrong politics — which, unfortunately, is the real politics.

    There are children movies created by Muslim producers. You will find in those movies peace and serenity and also education. By the way, batman and spiderman are also translated into our languages and millions of Muslim kids watch them. I can surely tell you that we Muslims also aspire for a world of peace, for a world where Muslims and non Muslims can live together collaborating to do good to and for each other — this is happening already.

  421. "been there, done that! trust me, the day you are free from him you will notice how much easier you breathe! bravo for listening to your inner guide."

    This is the thing . . .why should anyone trust you?

    I don't believe you. . .

    If you really had done that . . . . then you would know not to say. . .

    "been there, done that! trust me"

    Wouldn't this be the EXACT opposite thing you would want to say.

  422. I have asked many times ignorant people like you to explain to me why Muslims did not just clean the Arab world from non Muslims long time ago if you think Koran advocate the killing of kafirs , but they have no answer to my question . Do you know why ? They have read those verses in their historical context . Robert spencer is not scholar of Islam in order for you to use him in your argument he is man who he is making living on people like you . All what Muslims are asking you is to stay in your back yard is it hard thing to do ? . If you refuse which did then do not talk to me about violence or Jihad because you deserve it. You keep mentioning contrajihadist as if we only the only people on planet earth who have military . USA spend more than 300B $ year on their Jihad and nobody ocupies USA .
