My dear Fahad now I'm going to be blunt:

1. You do not know any Arabic grammar or Arabic for this matter. But you still come back to debate a subject that is far beyond you. And you avoid using any references from primary sources. As if I did not notice. So who is the source of your bogus information, is it your glorious Madrassa or your ignorant Mullahs?

Why is that my dear Fahad?

So one more time and if you do not get it this time you would really beyond any help.

Your Allah or is it Abul Qasim aka Muhammad says in Qur'an 2:216: ordained (by Allah) upon you the fighting (and being ordained by Allah this fighting is: harb muqadassa or holy war or Jihad!) Now do you get it?

As a matter of fact if you read Malik's Kitab al-Jihad (The book of the holy war) he makes it very clear that this aya is the foundation of Jihad or holy war! Malik knew his Arabic. You? you pretend to know Arabic when you do not and I call this chutzpah.

2. Your claims are bogus as in the case of "Qur'an only" and do you know why such claim is bogus? Because if we did not have the sira and the hadith we would not be able to tell very much about the life of Abul Qasim aka Muhammad by just reading the Qur'an as the Qur'an does not tell us very much about the life of Abul Qasim without the help of the sira and the hadith.

The Qur'an is also silent about male genital mutilation (aka circumcision) but that does not stop Muslims from subjecting male Muslims to such barbarity. It is also silent about suicide, as I did prove to you, but that did not stop the likes of Muhammad 3Atta to kill himself and kill many innocent people with him. But MUhammad 3Atta was very aware of this that his crime was supported by a famous tradition in the sira (see the story of 3Auf page 300 of Sirat Rasul Allah) about committing suicide in an act of istishHad and that was OK with Abul Qasim and your Allah. And if the sira is good enough to tell us about Abul Qasim why not about suicide in the course of istishHad? You tell me. Oh I forgot you do not know any Arabic. IstishHad means: martyrdom.

3. Now like a good boy repeat after me (this sounds like what they do in your glorious madrassa):

Jihad ("ordained fighting" in case of Q2:216) means holy war.

Mujahid (s.m) means holy fighter/warrior

Mujtahid (s.m) means he who strives to improve himself.

al-qatil (s.m) means the killer

al-muqatil (s.m) means the fighter

So much for your Muslim education , and you know what? Islam will be defeated in the market place of ideas. Stay tuned.
