Reader comment on item: Islam and Islamism: Faith and Ideology
in response to reader comment: Regarding Judaism and Christianity being defective variants of Islam

Submitted by Jennifer King (United Kingdom), Jan 17, 2006 at 07:35


Translating the word ALLAH as GOD is a common mistake, but a vital mistake. It is the fatal mistake which sustains Islam in the minds of Jews and Christians, and allows Muslims to claim a relationship with them in public. Muslims claim in public that the god of Islam and the god of the Jews and Christians are the same, and that Islam is of the Jewish tradition and religion, and of their Lord, Yahweh.
The Qur'an, Traditions, Islamic history and laws prove that this is not so – Allah and God are completely different entities. Allah is the enemy of the Jews and Christians, who are cursed, and whose religions are invalid in Islam.
This deception and misconception is the vital root of Islam. This is the key to the real power, the lifeline on which Islam feeds, the mask with which it disguises itself, the tradition on which it depends, and the secret of its own destruction. Without these false claims, Islam is not a religion, it is a pagan cult, a political faith, an ideology, which relies on deceit and fear to survive.
The Qur'an, Traditions [hadiths] and Islamic law prove that ALLAH ‘THE GOD' is NOT the ultimate, almighty GOD ‘YAHWEH, JEHOVAH, THE LORD' as meant in the Bible. The word "ALLAH" THE GOD is a contraction of "Al-ilah," 'al' meaning "the" and "ilah" meaning 'god.'
GOD in the ultimate sense in Arabic is ILAH.
The first pillar of faith in Islam contradicts this claim when it says: "There is no ILAH but ALLAH." [Arabic: la ilaha illa-la] If "Allah" were the Arabic word for God it would be: "There is no ALLAH but ALLAH." Allah is exclusively an Arabic term, and it can only be translated as ‘THE GOD'.
2:163 And your ILAH [GOD] is One ILAH [GOD].
3:62 There is no ILAH [GOD] except ALLAH.
5:73 But there is no ILAH [GOD] but One ILAH [GOD].
9:31 ‘The Jews and Christians were commanded in the Tawrat [Torah] and the Injeel [Gospel] to worship none but One ILAH [GOD] LA ILAHA ILLA HUWA [none has the right to be worshipped but He].
20:8 ALLAH! There is no ILAH [GOD] save Him.
20:14 Verily, I am ALLAH. No ILAH [GOD] may be worshiped but I.
20:97 Your ILAH [GOD] is ALLAH: there is no ILAH [GOD] but He.
52:43 Have they an ILAH [GOD] other than ALLAH?
59:22 ALLAH is He, no other ILAH [GOD] may be worshiped.
2:132 The Qur'an uses ‘ILAH' when Allah claims to be the God of Abraham.

With his dying breath, Muhammad cursed the Jews and Christians, and warned the Muslims to beware of the curses of the oppressed People of the Book.
The Jews and Christians are banished from Arabia, to this day.
"When Allah's Apostle became seriously sick, he started covering his face with a woolen sheet. When he felt short of breath, he removed it, and said, ‘That is so! Allah's curse be on Jews and Christians!'"
Bukhari: Volume 5, Book 59, Number 727

Chapter 5 and chapter 9 are the very last verses of the Qur'an. These laws are final and absolute for ALL Muslims. They cannot be changed or cancelled.
Chapter 5 of the Qur'an was revealed after Muhammad's massacres of the Jews, ordering a total separation and enmity between Muslims and the People of the Book, the genocide of Jews and Christians and the abolition of their religions.
Chapter 9 is Islam's Ultimatum to the World. Islam or Else!
Qur'an 9:30 "And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of God, and the Christians say: the Messiah is the son of God. That is their saying with their mouths, resembling the saying of those who disbelieved aforetime. Allah Curse them! [Allah fight them!] how they are deluded away from the truth!
The words in Arabic are literally: 'ALLAH KILL THEM!

These sound hadiths, traditions, of Bukhari and Muslim prove that Muhammad knew that his god, ALLAH, ‘THE GOD' the Arab Lord of the Ka'ba, is not the ultimate almighty ILAH, GOD, YAHWEH, the Lord of the Jews and Christians.
Muhammad knew that his god is powerless against the almighty God of the Scriptures. This is why he and his god ordered the destruction of the Jews and Christians, the People of the Scripture and their religions.
Muhammad and his god are imposters. Islam is a fraud.

Narrated Ibn Abbas: Allah's Apostle said to Muadh bin Jabal when he sent him to Yemen. "YOU WILL COME TO THE PEOPLE OF SCRIPTURE, [JEWS AND CHRISTIANS] and when you reach them, invite them to testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah and that Muhammad is His Apostle. And if they obey you in that, then tell them that Allah has enjoined on them five prayers to be performed every day and night. And if they obey you in that, then tell them that Allah has enjoined on them the zakat tax to be taken from the rich amongst them and given to the poor amongst them. And if they obey you in that, then be cautious! Don't take their best properties as Zakat, AND BE AFRAID OF THE CURSE OF AN OPPRESSED PERSON AS THERE IS NO SCREEN [DEFENCE] BETWEEN HIS INVOCATION AND ALLAH.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 24, Number 573; Volume 3, Book 43, Number 628; Volume 5, Book 59, Number 634

It is reported on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas that Mu'adh said: The Messenger of Allah sent me as a governor of Yemen and instructed me thus: YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF IN A COMMUNITY OF THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK [JEWS AND CHRISTIANS] so first call them to testify that there is no god but Allah, that I [Muhammad] am the messenger of Allah, and if they accept this, then tell them Allah has enjoined upon them five prayers during the day and the night and if they accept it, then tell them that Allah has made Zakat obligatory for them that it should be collected from the rich and distributed among the poor, and if they agree to it don't pick up as a share of Zakat the best of their wealth. BEWARE OF THE SUPPLICATION OF THE OPPRESSED PEOPLE FOR THERE IS NO BARRIER [DEFENCE] BETWEEN HIM AND ALLAH.
Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Number 27
