SOS!!! TO ALL INNOCENT INFIDELS!

PEACE IN ISLAM

Qur'an 25:63 says, "When Muslims are addressed by the ignorant they should reply, ‘PEACE.'
This means when anyone who is ignorant of the terrible truth about Islamic law and history asks Muslims about Islam, they can be deluded into thinking that Islam is peaceful and tolerant. And ignorance, while it can be bliss, is in this case fatal.

3:28 "Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, they shall have no relation left with Allah; EXCEPT BY WAY OF PRECAUTION [TAQIYAH] THAT YOU MAY GUARD YOURSELVES [TUQATAN] FROM THEM. What that refers to is in cases where one has a choice, but in cases of fear and taqiyah it is permissible to make friends with them, as much as is essential to protect oneself against their evil. That is subject to the condition that one's faith should not be affected by that friendship and the one who is behaves in that manner out of necessity is not one who behaves in that manner out of choice.

Qur'an 5:41 "Whomever Allah wants to deceive you cannot help. Allah does not want them to know the truth because he intends to disgrace them in this world and then torture them in the next."
The Qur'an says that Allah is the best deceiver, the Lord of Deceit.

In Arabic: Wa Makaru wa makara Allah wa Allah Amkaru al Makireen.

These verses say that Allah "makara." The phrase of ‘Allah being the best deceiver' kheir al makarein is used. The Arabic word makara always means to deceive, scheme, or plot and defeating a victim by deceit. The person who is a Makir (Same form as the word Kafir) is sly, cunning, wily, a person who would outwit someone else to cause them harm. It means to trick, outwit and deceive for the purpose of overpowering and conquering the victim and it is always used in a negative sense. The word for scheming (makr) always means an act of deception for causing evil to another.
