in response to reader comment: Islam's Crushing Embrace of Education

Our dear Renox wrote this little gem:

>Islam ultimately embraces the past and education is a search for origins; and fulfillment of the Prophet's message.

Really? But you see the Islamic Historical Tradition lectures us kuffar about the Doctrine of الجاهلية! Oh the Arabic! Can you ask Zakir Naik to translate it for you? Or even better Sheikh google صلى الله عليه وسلم.

So we are told that Islam was a new start and the past is no more than ignorance and should be discarded. Right our dear Renox al-Tablighee? And this is why Omar was quoted as saying, and I'm paraphrasing: Burn the books of the library (Alexandria as well as Ctesiphon and later on in Nalanda) if what is written in these books is in the book of Allah and burn these books if what is in these books is contrary to what is in the book of Allah. And this is why the old civilizations of the Middle East had to Islamize and Arabize and discard their languages and cultures for an Arab language and religion. So are your saying that Quthm aka Muhammad disagrees with your Allah Astaghfirulah!?

However, I will give you a chance to prove to us from Islamic literary sources in Arabic (translations will not be accepted) that Abul Qasim aka Muhammad aka Ahmad aka Kuthm indeed said and I'm quoting you:

>Islam ultimately embraces the past and education is a search for origins

BTW your Allah says in Q62:2 that he sent an ignorant prophet to ignorant people like you and you are really the proof.

And the end result is an absolute disaster for the conquered civilizations. Here is an example: In the case of Egypt and by the middle ages the link between the glorious history of Egypt and the people of Egypt was severed because the Arabic language was imposed on the people of Egypt. And the language of Egypt was dead.

And here is what a very "esteemed" Muslim historian, his name is al-Mas'udi (he is called the Arab Herodotus), this is what he wrote in the 10th century AD about who built the Pyramids of Giza and this is the translation provided by Emmet Scott

"Surid Ben Shaluk Ben Sermuni Ben Termidun Ben Tedresan Ben Sal one of the kings of Egypt before the flood, built two great pyramids and notwithstanding they were subsequently named after a person called Shaddad Ben Ad......"

Absolute nonsense and pathetic so the Muslim invaders of Egypt not only destroyed the link between the glorious past of Egypt and Islamized and Arabized Egypt. Absolute disaster for the people of Egypt.

Compare the Muslim invaders of Egypt and the Greek civilization in Egypt between 333 BC and 642 AD where the Greeks never demanded that Egyptians should abandon their language and they were interested in learning about the history of Egypt and this is why Manetho (he was an Egyptian priest) wrote a book in Greek about the Kings and Queens of ancient Egypt. And then it was Napoleon who in 1798 AD restored to the people of Egypt their history and their language.

Did you learn some thing new today?

Last, if you want to be respected and we can have a debate then do not post creepy tablighee Islamic nonsense. And do you home work for your so called Allah's sake. And stop pretending that you know Arabic because you do not. And BTW nothing is wrong with not knowing Arabic and nothing is wrong with being Pakistani or Indian Muslim, but if you pretend to know, when you really are making things up, then you embarrass yourself again.
