Fajri Al Kaustar: Questions for you

Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: Questions for Mr. G.Vishvas

Submitted by Plato (India), Oct 11, 2008 at 10:19

Fajri, you asked G. Vishwas,

>>Dear Mr. G. Vishvas,

I'd like to ask you a few questions

1. Have you read the Holy Qur'an from beginning to the end?

2. Have you understood and read Hadith?

3 Have you lived among muslims long enough to know them?

Did you have enough knowledge to be able to say such things?<<

Here are some counter questions for your consideration:

When you do dawa do you explain to your listener that he/she has to read and understand the Koran from beginning to end in the original Arabic and the thousands of hadiths by various authors before she/he can be a real Muslim or do you do taqiya and say that to become a Muslim all it takes is to repeat the shahada after you? I have observed Muslims telling unbelievers that if they become Muslim all their past crimes and sins will be forgiven by Allah (based perhaps on verse 8:38)

I think you ask such obviously rhetorical questions because you are surprised at the knowledge of Islam we infidels on this blog have demonstrated and you want to make it appear that perhaps we are singing in the dark.

As a devote Muslim your knowledge of the Koran and Hadith should be exceptional. So allow me to test your knowledge about the Koran and Hadith with these questions:

  1. Which Koranic verses order/tell Muslims:
  1. Not to befriend unbelievers.
  2. That unbelievers are najees (unclean)
  3. That unbelievers are deaf, dumb and blind
  4. That as a Muslim you can enjoy the booty (inclusive of women and children taken as slaves) you capture.
  5. Asks you to make ready all the engines of war to take on the unbelievers
  6. That you have a contract from Allah to kill or be killed and receive paradise as a reward
  7. To believe blindly in your religion
  1. Which hadith of Bukhari/Muslim reveals these things about Muhammad:
  1. That Gabriel told him that Allah forgives even sins like theft and fornication if they are Muslims.
  2. That he instigated his followers to ABUSE their enemies
  3. That he said women, houses and horses are evil omens
  4. That he claimed angels curse women for spending the night away from their husbands
  5. That he urged believers to burn people who do not attend prayers along with their houses
  6. That Muhammad said if a woman suckles an adult she is allowed to be alone with him without arousing suspicion of an illicit relationship.

You also ask if the poster had lived among Muslims to understand Islam. If he had lived in Saudi Arabia, the epicentre of Islam, he would have understood that Islam has been unable to overcome the tribal nature of jahiliya. He would have seen that Islam places all its womenfolk in a black shroud.

Fajri Al Kaustar, if you find any difficulty in locating these verses and hadith just ask.

Regards

Plato
