"Not surprising"

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration

Submitted by Lactantius Jr (United Kingdom), Jan 29, 2009 at 06:30

It's not surprising that Turki al-Faisal would "seek martyrdom (sic) for Allah and for Palestine." His predecessor as Saudi Ambassador to London, Ghazi Al-Qusaibi, said "I long to die as a "martyr" (sic) although I am at an age that does not allow me to carry out a "martyrdom operation" (sic). My weight does not permit this. But I still hope to die as a "martyr"(sic)"

What is it about Islam that creates such a death-cult? What else but the fact that the only guarantee a Muslim can have of being admitted to al-jannah (Allah's "paradise") is by killing and being killed in his service, with Surah's 61:10-12;4:74, and 9:111 guaranteeing Islamic martyrs heaven in an economic bargain. Indeed, these three references explicitly use words that connote buying and selling and signing a contract of sale, and the currency behind the deals is death by "martyrdom."

And what a carnal "paradise" it is, with Allah placing much emphasis on sexual pleasure in his "Paradise." The Houris are companions who remain in a perpetual state of virginity, regardless of how often they are used for sex, and Muhammad had more to say on this, for him, "Paradise" is a sexual paradise. It is a man's, not a woman's Paradise. It is a Playboy Mansion where he, and other men, engage in sex 24/7 and see how Surah an-Naba 78:31-34 is rendered by the following three translators,

"Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age, and a cup overflowing."

Surah an-Naba 78:31-34 (Arberry)

"But, for the God-fearing is a blissful abode, Enclosed gardens and vineyards; And damsels with swelling breasts, their peers in age, And a full cup:"

Surah an-Naba 78:31-34 (Rodwell)

"Verily, for the Muttaqûn ("pious Muslims"), there will be a success (Paradise); Gardens and grapeyards; And young full-breasted (mature) maidens of equal age;

And a full cup (of wine)."

Surah an-Naba 78:31-34 (Al-Hilali & Khan)

For what purpose would Allah "reveal" descriptions of such voluptuous women? but to rouse mens sexual desire, and the determination to do anything to reach this kind of paradise?

Muhammad dealt with the amount of times a man can have sex in one day in Paradise.

A man will have intercourse in Paradise with his wives from among al-hoor al-‘iyn and his wives from among the people of this world, if they enter Paradise with him. A man will be given the strength of a hundred men to eat, drink, feel desire and have sexual intercourse. It was narrated from Anas that the Prophet said: "The believer in Paradise will be given such and such strength for sexual intercourse." He was asked, "O Messenger of Allaah, will he really be able to do that?" He said, "He will be given the strength of one hundred (men)." (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2459. He said, (it is) saheeh ghareeb). Sunan al-Tirmidhi #2459

An additional three Hadith from Ibn Sad's "Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir"9, volume 1, pages 438, 439. ( isnaad and the obligatory blessing on Muhammad omitted):

…The apostle of Allah said, "Gabriel brought a kettle from which I ate and I was given the power of sexual intercourse to forty men."

…The apostle of Allah was given the power to equal to that of forty men and the people of paradise will be given the power equal to eighty men

…The prophet was granted the power of sexual intercourse to that of forty men.

Ibn Kathir commenting on Surah 56:35-37 says regarding the amount of times a man can have sex in one day in Paradise:

(In Paradise, the believer will be given such and such strength for women.) Anas said, "I asked, `O Allah's Messenger! Will one be able to do that' He said,

(He will be given the strength of a hundred (men).)" At-Tirmidhi also recorded it and said, "Sahih Gharib." Abu Al-Qasim At-Tabarani recorded that Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah was asked, "O Allah's Messenger! Will we have sexual intercourse with our wives in Paradise" He said,

(The man will be able to have sexual intercourse with a hundred virgins in one day.) Al-Hafiz Abu `Abdullah Al-Maqdisi said, "In my view, this Hadith meets the criteria of the Sahih, and Allah knows best." Allah's statement,

(`Urub,) Sa`id bin Jubayr reported that Ibn `Abbas said, "They are in an infatuated state with their husbands, haven't you ever seen a she-camel in heat? She is like that." Ad-Dahhak reported from Ibn `Abbas who said, "The Urub and their husbands are their sweet hearts, and they are their husbands' sweet hearts." Similar was said by `Abdullah bin Sarjis, Mujahid, `Ikrimah, Abu Al-`Aliyah, Yahya bin Abi Kathir, `Atiyah, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak and others. Ad-Dahhak reported from Ibn `Abbas;

Muhammad claimed he was gifted to perform sexually 40 times a day and that men in Paradise can have sex up to 80 or 100 times a day. Do the math - 100 times a day is over four times an hour for 24 hours. That this doesn't leave much time for anything else does it? Muhammad promised unlimited sex. So, what do you think was on Muhammad's mind?

Muhammad taught that Allah created "Houris" specifically for sexual use. They were created primarily to satisfy Muslim men's lust. These Houris, though they are called "wives", are not "wives" in any real sense. Rather, they are created primarily for sexual pleasure. They are whores, they are sex dolls, they are nothing but creatures created by Allah to be sexual.

Carnal pleasure was the best Muhammad could come up with, because he did not know the beautiful presence of the One true God, he did not know the personal, intimate, love of Jesus Christ. Consequently, Muhammad's imagination created a heavenly Playboy mansion. Sorry, but I want something better than that, and I know that Jesus Christ and the Bible promise His followers far more than carnal pleasure.

In many Qur'anic passages, the emphasis is put on carnal fulfilment, saying that Allah would create creatures just to be used sexually by men who have killed and been killed to reach Allah's "paradise," which does not fit the character of the God I know, the God who,

"loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."

John 3:16
