(SURAS AND FOOTNOTES TAKEN FROM ABDULLAH YUSUF ALI [AYA] TRANSLATION)
S URA 16:125= “Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious...” (AYA notes that here are preaching principles that are good for all time. He says: “Our preaching must be: not dogmatic, not self-regarding, not offensive, but gentle, considerate, and such as would attract their (infidels’) attention....his motive is the love of man and the love of Allah” (note 2161).
This all sounds good and proper, but Ali’s prophet did not practice what he preached! DID MUHAMMAD LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS, OR HIS ENEMIES? NO! Consider Jesus, our Prophet, who did both. 1 Jn. 3:16 says, “By this we know love, because He (Isa/Jesus) laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (see 1 Jn. 4:8). We don’t have to be told of the hell that non-Muslims experience in Islamic societies where Shariah law is in operation: death to anyone who argues against Islam!
Why is it that their prophet said that “only Muslim’s blood is regarded equal.” By this, he meant that no Muslim should be put to death for murdering a non-Muslim; where is the love, the equality? If a non-Muslim merely curses a Muslim, he or she must either be sentenced to death, or be converted to Islam (read Rights of Non-Muslims in Islamic States, esp. pp 2 and 3, by Abu Al-Ala Al-Mawdudi. Also read Ibn Timiyya, Islam’s great legist and scholar, vol. 14, p. 85; vol. 20, p. 282. Read section one of Ahkam al-Qur’an, p. 284, by scholar Imam al-Shafii. Also in Zad-al-Maad by Ibn Qazyim al-Jawziyya, section 3, p. 124. I also mention 2 authorized books acknowledged by ALL Islam scholars pertaining to their prophet’s sayings- Sahih of al-Bukhari and Shih of Muslim. I could fill several pages here on the fallacy of “Islamic love.” HA! (Write for our 5 free booklets on the 2 Faces of Islam and also our booklets Offensive War to Spread Islam and Bloody Islam -Gen. Jim.)
S. 29:46= “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book (Christians/Jews, but most of the time meaning “Christians,” this included Roman Catholics), except in the best way, unless it be with those of them who do wrong…” Ali states that “those who are deliberating trying to wrong or injure others will have to be treated firmly (like killed or have hands/feet chopped off?? -Gen. Jim), as we are guardians of each other…”
29:46 continues: “unless it be with those of them who do wrong but say, ‘We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; our God and your God is One; and it is to Him we submit (in Islam)” Ali’s notes says of the latter, that Islam (not Christianity) is “the religion of ALL true and sincere men of faith, or should be one; and that is the ideal of Islam.”
(This is why we see and hear of Muslims killing in the name of Islam: to rid the world of non-Muslims, and to spread their murderous false religion. The “Peace” they speak of is “Peace” that will come when ALL are either killed or converted to Islam! -Gen. Jim.)
S. 3:64- “Say, ‘O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but Allah, that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.”’
Two things need to be examined here:
#1. These are the words of the prophet Muhammad, while he was at Mecca on his earliest revelations when there was tension between the “believers” and the Meccan pagans/aristocrats. This is where the prophet spoke all his “peaceful” Quranic revelations, like the ones above where AYA explains that Muslims are to be courteous and patient in witnessing to non-believers. This, of course, was when he was in a place of inferiority/humility, BUT when he took his hijra (flight) to Medina (city 200 miles north), and gathered an army (after 10 years), they marched to Mecca and killed those who had “wronged” them. This is when and where he got the “revelation” [to fight], because they are wronged… “[they are] those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right, - (for no cause) except that they say, ‘Our Lord is God”’ (S. 22:39-40). A later “revelation” commands: “Then fight in the cause of God, and know that God heareth, and knoweth all things” (S. 2:244). Fighting for Allah gave incentives, like Paradise (S. 4:95-97; 3:194, 195). So started the Islamic offensive, and it continues today: killing for Allah, hating non-Muslims etc. Unlike Jesus, the ONE and ONLY TRUE Prophet who did no violence, but loved His enemies, Muhammad raided, killed, and made prisoners to convert etc. (write for our publications that prove all this).
#2. The second thing is that of “...we worship none but Allah; That we associate no partners with Him...” It is a fact that Muhammad did in fact honor other “deities.” In order to win support of his opponents at Mecca (his mid-Meccan period), he proclaimed that the favorite “deities” al-Lat, al-Uzza, and Manat (3) could and would be considered “divine” beings whose intercession was effectual with Allah, the major “deity” (moon-god) at Mecca. Don’t be fooled by their telling us that Allah and our Christian God are one and the same. Our God does not take us back into the Dark Ages, as did the Arabian god of Islam.
Another truth relating to the above is that Muhammad eventually believed that he had been DECEIVED by Satan concerning the 3 idols, substituting the following words:
S. 53:19-23= “Have ye seen Lat, and Uzza, and another, the third (goddess), Manat What! For you the male sex, and for Him, the female? Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! These are nothing but names which ye have devised,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah has sent down no authority (whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and what the souls desire!- Even though there has already come to them guidance from their Lord!”
This is a good way for Muhammad to cover his butt, for he put others to death for idolatry!
These have been known as the “Satanic verses.” Muhammad must at some point have recited as part of the Qur’an the verses which were later rejected as SATANIC in origin: but for the record, MUHAMMAD, UNLIKE JESUS WHO NEVER WAS DECEIVED, NOR SINNED, WAS VERY much human. You Muslims better read’ or re-read S. 41:6 where he admits his humanness, asking forgiveness. Jesus never asked forgiveness for any sin, yet He was fully “human.” Why do you Muslims choose Muhammad above Jesus? Why? ~Gen. Jim~
