> Why dont you show us the verse that says : "lie in order to futher islamic agenda" or I will be waiting. Thanks.

The Noble Quran's fundamental virtue , namely its splendid lack of clarity and brilliant abomination of logical and grammatical coherence , prevents it from saying verbatim such a truism every Muslim must otherwise know . But to prove what is otherwise manifest generations of pious scholars joined forces to juxtapose TWO verses to make this compulsory conclusion doubly self-evident.

: Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief,- except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith - but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty.

In the obscure Quranic slang : "Open your mouth to disbelief but close your breast to it if necessary for the sake of faith in Allah" or in plain ( i.e. un-Quranic) text : "You can lie (to unbelievers) to further Islamic agenda".


Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah. (Yusufali's translations)

In the Quranic slang : "Art thou a Moslem ? " "Yes, I am" . "I rely on thee rather than on unbelievers... And thou ? " No, I am not but I can help you further your Islamic agenda!!!" "What ? I must rely on thee too then , but I'll take precautions , that is to say I'll lie to thee to be sure of help from Allah! "

In plain(=un-Quranic) text : "You can lie (to unbelievers) to further Islamic agenda".

As a Moslem you can't Islamically question this conclusion , can you ? How can you tell the kaffirs the truth and hope it will further your Islamic agenda? It can only ruin your Islamic agenda, Zaky! Never tell the truth to a kaffir!
