Reader comment on item: Converts to Terrorism
Submitted by N. Khan (United States), Dec 18, 2005 at 12:30Mr Mueen Later Madina Surahs, hadiths and earliest siras written by Ishaq, TabariI, Sad and Waqqidi as well as all the islamic scholars from 7th century to now confirm that every thing came in stages. Mecca surahs are all peaceful , fighting was not allowed because muslims were few and weak. In early madina suras only defensine fighting was allowed (only one aya of Surah 2). Then offensive fighting was ordered when muslims were numerous and strong .
Read the following hadiths which show the agressive jihad and violence practised by the prophet of islam.
HE HAD HIS CRITICS ASASSINATED
Bukhari:V4B52N270 "Allah's Messenger said, ‘Who is ready to kill Ashraf? He has said injurious things about Allah and His Apostle.' Maslama got up saying, ‘Would you like me to kill him?' The Prophet proclaimed, ‘Yes.'
Ishaq:551 "Another victim was Huwayrith. He used to insult Muhammad in Mecca. Huwayrith was put to death by Ali.
Ishaq:597 "When the Apostle returned to Medina after his raid on Ta'if, word spread that he had killed some of the men who had satirized and insulted him. The scared poets who were left, ran away in all directions.
HIS PUNISHMENTS WERE CRUEL
Ishaq 595 "The Apostle said, ‘Get him away from me and cut off his tongue.""
Ishaq:316 "Following Badr, Muhammad sent a number of raiders with orders to
capture some of the Meccans and burn them alive."
HE KILLED THOSE WHO REFUSED ISLAM OR LEFT ISLAM
Sunan Abu -Dawud,4390
"Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi:
I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair."
Ishaq:551 The Messenger ordered Miqyas' assassination because he became a renegade by rejecting Islam."
Bukhari:V4B52N260 "The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.'"
Tabari VIII:143 " He set out with fifteen men. He encountered a large force whom he summoned to Islam. They refused to respond so he killed all of them."
SURPRISE ATTACK ON VIILAGES TO GAIN BOOTY AND CAPTURED WOMEN
Bukhari:V5B59N512 "The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer [Prayer of Fear] near Khaybar when it was still dark. He said, ‘Allahu-Akbar!' [Allah is Greatest] ' Then the inhabitants came out running on their roads. The Prophet had their men killed; their children and woman were taken as captives."
Prophet Got 17 year old Safia as his share of booty.
Bukhari vol 3,Book46, No. 717
"Narrated Ibn Aun:
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. (Ref: Waqqidi, Tabari)
Mr Mueenuddin , does that sound like defensive jihad to you.
Muslims terrorirized from Spain to India quoting Quran and Sunna attacking and killing millions who had never attacked Arabia. Was that all defensive Jihad. Mr Mueenuddin either you are in denial or using Taqiyya, the islamic deception which quran allows and which your prophet practised.
