Reader comment on item: Why Politicians Pretend Islam Has No Role in ISIS

Submitted by Nur el Masih ben Haq (United States), May 8, 2015 at 15:41

While the increasingly secular and, therefore, dishonest and votes-mongering Western politicains claim that Islam is not inherently violent, Islamic scriptures screamingly say expansionist violence is among the greatest religious duties.


"Allah's Apostle said, 'Who is willing to kill Ka'b bin Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?' Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslamah got up saying, 'O Allah's Apostle! Would you like me to kill him?' The Prophet said, 'Yes,' Maslamah said, 'Then allow me to say false things in order to deceive him.' The

Prophet said, 'You may say such things.'"


"When the ENEMY GOT THE UPPER HAND AT UHUD, the Messenger was left with only seven Ansar and two Emigrants. WHEN THE ENEMY OVERWHELMED HIM, HE SAID: 'WHOSO TURNS THEM AWAY WILL BE MY COMPANION IN PARADISE.' An Ansar man fought until he was killed. The enemy advanced and overwhelmed them again so Muhammad repeated: 'Whoever turns them away will attain Paradise.' Another Ansar fought until he was slain. This state continued until all seven Ansari were killed, one after the other. The Prophet said to the Muslims: 'We have not done justice to them.'"

Bukhari:V4B52N44 "A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, 'Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad in reward.' He replied, 'I do not find such a deed.'"

Bukhari:V4B52N50 "The Prophet said, 'A single endeavor of fighting in Allah's Cause in the forenoon or in the afternoon is better than the world and whatever is in it.'"

Sahih Bukhari 9:84:5, Sahih Muslim1:31

"I (Mohammed) have been commanded (by Allah) to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and believe that I am the Messenger and in all (Islam) that I have brought. Whoever says this will save his property and life from me."

Bukhari:V4B52N46 "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid [Muslim fighter] in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.'"

Sahih Bukhari 4:53:386

"Our Prophet (Mohammed), ordered us to fight you (non-Muslims) till you worship Allah alone or pay us Jizyah (extortion) in submission…Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise…and whoever survives shall become your master"

Sahih Bukhari; and Hanbel.

Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234:

"A group of people from the Oreyneh and Oqayelh tribes came to the prophet to embrace Islam, the prophet advised them to drink the urine of the camels. Later on when they killed the prophet's shepherd, the prophet seized them, gouged out their eyes, cut their hands and legs, and left them thirsty in the desert to die."

Bukhari:V4B52N53 "The Prophet said, 'Nobody who dies and finds Paradise would wish to come back to this life even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to get killed again in Allah's Cause.'"

Bukhari:V4B52N54 "The Prophet said, 'By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for the believers who do not want me to leave them, I would certainly and always go forth in army-units setting out for Jihad. I would love to be martyred in Allah's Cause and then get resurrected and get martyred again only to be resurrected so that I could get martyred once more.'"

Muslim:C40B20N4676 "Believers who sit home and those who go out for Jihad in Allah's Cause are not equal."

That explains why Islamic violence is not confined to the bleeding jungle of Islam, but extends to the secularly indulgent and, therefore vulnerable West.
