Firsly the hadiths the koran by Abdulla yusuf Ali didn't ask for you to read into the scriptures as you see fit. This islamic sickness is spreading like a plague. Now muslims are trying to change this 'perfect' book to fit into modern western culture so wife beating becomes symbolical where instead of using your fist as they do in muslim countries you now argue that the koran means a feather! please don't give me your opinion where in the koran does it say with a feather hit your wife where in the violent koran does it say tickle her if she misbehaves it means as it is written or it is not what iit claime to be. I am not interested in your opinion only in what your barabaric koran says.

And if we weigh it all up it does not fit into this civilise dworld today of tolerance towards all races or religion. Black faces means what it does those with black faces no part of Christian text is so explicit and so ugly like the koran when it goes into the sin of black skin. I am not interested in your interpretation or fantasies only what the text says I am sick and tired of muslims reading into things and making 2+2= 1000 meaning you come up with those most peculiar of reasons.

As for muslims becoming Christians all over Africa where Islam used the sword and violence in 5 century six million Africans are leaving Islam behind. Muslimis in Europe to are leaving Islam and there are sites offering couselling to muslims who are threatened by other violent and sick muslims. but why? because the koran which can't be changed or modified or trwisted says kill those who leave islam crucify the ifidels murder those who won't accept Islam not my words but the words of the koran!

As for Mohammed If I had to choose between Christ and him who would I choose? A man who loots and murder ...then claim Allah blesed the relationship steal his step sons wife having another vision to support this lust looting and chopping heads motivated by himself and himself alone hated women saying they were all going to hell all these and worse are in the koran and the hadiths the latter most of sharih law comes from not the bible!

Jesus sinless, didn't lust, didn't murder marry childs brides, didin't loot, didn't have to confess any sin or wrong doing, perfect, heal the sick raise the dead gave comfort open the eyes of the blind and you want me to follow your nasty and vile demonic possessed peadophile poltical cult leader? I tell you this if I was in a room filled with Demonic muslims Immans you would never ever convince me that i should give up Christ for lustful and vile mosquite bitten Arab

If any of your women are guilty of lewdness (al-fahishata), Take the evidence of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or God ordain for them some (other) way. If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, leave them alone; for God is Oft-returning, most Merciful. S. 4:15-16 Y. Ali

Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. - 2:191

O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Those of you who make them his friends is one of them. God does not guide an unjust people. - 5:54

Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme - 8:39

Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there are 20 steadfast men among you, they shall vanquish 200; and if there are a hundred, they shall rout a thousand unbelievers, for they are devoid of understanding. - 8:65

  • When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
  • Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
  • Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
  • The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
  • Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam. (5:33)
  • The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
  • Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies
    (22:19)
  • Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
  • The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
  • Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
  • Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur'an (8:12)
  • Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels (8:60)
  • Black skin and Judgment Day:

    On the Day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieved ye after your (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved. (Âl 'Imran 3:106)

    And on the Day of Resurrection thou (Muhammad) seest those who lied concerning Allah with their faces blackened. Is not the home of the scorners in hell? (Az-Zumar 39:60)

    Muslims usually try to understand these verses as being metaphorical without racist connotations.

    However, there are some hadiths that link black skin and creation with judgment day:

    Abu Darda' reported God's messenger as saying, "God created Adam when He created him and struck his right shoulder and brought forth his offspring white like small ants. And he struck his left shoulder and brought forth his offspring BLACK as though they were charcoal. Then He said to the party on his right said, 'To paradise, and I do not care', and He said to the party in his left shoulder 'To hell, and I do not care'." Ahmad transmitted it. (Mishkat Al Masabih, English translation with explanatory notes by Dr. James Robson [Sh. Muhammad Ahsraf Publishers, Booksellers & Exporters, Lahore-Pakistan, Reprint 1990], Volume I, Chapter IV, Book I.- Faith, pp. 31-32)

    Narrated AbudDarda'
    Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Allah created Adam when He had to create him and He struck his right shoulder and there emitted from it white offspring as if they were white ants. He struck his left shoulder and there emitted from it THE BLACK OFFSPRINGS as if they were charcoal. He then said (to those who had been emitted) from the right (shoulder): For Paradise and I do not mind. Then He said to those (who had been emitted) from his left shoulder: They are for Hell and I do not mind.
    Transmitted by Ahmad. (Al-Tirmidhi Hadith, Number 38- ALIM CD ROM Version)

    For these traditions, it is much harder to resist the impression of racist overtones. They do not speak about people being whitened or blackened at the time of judgment, but link their original skin colour with their eternal destiny, i.e. Allah decreed that blacks will enter hell in contrast to whites. In fact, other narrations even command that any person claiming that Muhammad was black be put to death!
