It is Official: Muslims Re-interpret the Quran!

E-mail Print PDF
Sheikh Youssef Alqardawi is probably thQaeadawie most famous Muslim scholar in the Arab world. He is one of the most influential and highest ranking Islamic scholars and sits on many Islamic committees. He is a rich celebrity and has a reputation of being a moderate Muslim scholar who promotes moderate and science friendly Islam. His reputation is not blemished by his support to Hamas and other radical Islamic organizations and the suicide bombing that kills civilians and children. As would be expected, Alqardawi is a top ranking member of the Muslim brotherhood.

The Arabs believe that sheikh Alqardawi is a devout Muslim who follows the example of his prophet. This devotion was put to practice when the old man, over eighty years now, got married to an Algerian girl named Asma, when she was only seventeen years old, and reportedly younger than his granddaughter. Unlike Mohammed, our sheikh was not endowed with the sexual power of forty men, so he had to rely on that blue pill made by the infidels and much consumed by the Arab sheikhs. Only Allah knows what happened between our sheikh and his young wife, because recently they had a divorce. Of course, a sheikh in his position doesn’t speak about his private life, but these are the news that has been circulating about him in the Middle East.

How can He have a son when He has no wife?

E-mail Print PDF
The above question, which derives from a verse (6:101) in the Quran, holds a clue to Mohammed’s imagination of the nature of Allah’s existence and His capabilities. It also exposes the Quran’s extraordinary lack of consistency and common sense. Like manyLost in Translation other verses in the Quran, verse 6:101 suggests that by the time Mohammed released a verse, he may had forgotten completely about what he had released in earlier years, hence the remarkable contradictions. As a young Muslim, I used to read the above verse many times and noticed its appalling lack of common sense, but my suppressed Islamic brain couldn’t notice anything in it other than unequalled eloquence and linguistic miracle. Having left Islam, I now fully perceive how asinine the Quran could be.

Here is Hilali and Khan’s translation of the above verse:
Q.6: 101. He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything.

Hilali/Khan use the word wife as a translation to the Arabic word ‘sahiba’, which is the feminine for ‘friend’, in other words a ‘girlfriend’ or consort. However, the word girlfriend is considered an un-Islamic western concept that is too corrupt for a decent relationship between opposite sexes. The translators probably thought it would be better to avoid the use of the word ‘girlfriend’ in order not to show Allah promoting western culture and contemplating having an illegitimate child!

Jesus vs Mohammed : The TOP 20

E-mail Print PDF
SermonIt is hard to escape the signs of a resurgent, emboldened Islam, hell bent on obeying their Prophet’s wish to convert the whole world to Dar al-Islam. Dhimmi governments everywhere are appeasing Muslim demands, our Universities are propped up by Oil money and becoming Islamofied and more anti-Semitic every day, our history books are being “re-written” to make Islam seem more appealing, our assets are being gobbled up by Middle East financiers, our culture and our democracy are both under threat and terrorist acts are on the increase.

What stands before Islam is the world’s largest religion, Christianity, with a following estimated at around 2 billion people. Of course, at the moment, the Jews are in focus, especially in Gaza, where Hamas are determined to destroy the state of Israel and falsely claim that Israel has “stolen” their land.

Mohammed and the TEN Commandments

E-mail Print PDF
The Ten CommandmentsMuslims are always very quick to point out that Islam recognizes the Prophets before Mohammed, especially Jesus and Moses. But they are shy about mentioning what Moses is famous for, and that is the Ten Commandments. There is an obvious reason for this as Mohammed actually broke  the Ten Commandments and left a legacy such that his followers would also break the Ten Commandments by following his example. Of course, muslims are told that Mohammed set the “perfect example” for muslims to follow [Q33.21] and also that Mohammed conforms to “sublime morality. [Q68.4] It is important then to investigate whether Mohammed did indeed follow the teachings of Moses and Jesus and support “the Law” which had stood for over 2,000 years by the time Mohammed appeared in 611AD.
 
The Law appears in two places in the Old Testament, first in Exodus 20:2-17 and then in Deuteronomy 5:6-21. Jesus then reconfirmed the Law and its importance in the New Testament in Matthew 5:17-18. [7]

Importance of the Law
Moses was given the Ten Commandments circa 1450BC on Mt Sinai after he had led the Israelites out of Egypt. [2]  When Jesus started his ministry circa 29AD, he reinforced the importance of the Law:
 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” [Matt 5:17-18]

A Beginner

E-mail Print PDF
Holy QuranFor many people living busy lives, to get an understanding of Islam is not easy or indeed possible. By the time you have attended to making a living, raising a family, engaging in recreational activities and fulfilling your social obligations, there is just no time left to understand why Islam is so in your face these days. In the newspapers, on TV and even on-line, there are daily scenes of atrocities, from bombings, shootings, honour killings, rape, piracy, forced marriages, news on polygamy, forced conversions to Islam, burning of churches and so on.
Sometimes you may stop to wonder “why”?
 
Because the busy person does not have time to sit down with an Imam or take time off from work to visit a mosque on Fridays, we have compiled a simple guide to “what is Islam” to help you get a better understanding of why the world seems to be going crazy.

Of course it is very easy to become a muslim. All that is required is to recite the Testimony of Faith.
The first pillar of Faith : al-Shahaadatayn.
“None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and Mohammed is his slave and messenger”.
But Islam is a bit like debt. Easy to get into, but so hard to escape from (and more dangerous).
If you leave Islam for whatever reason and become an apostate, then you must be killed!
 
Consider then the TEN steps to being a good muslim.

Religious Extremism

ExtremesReligious Extremism… The Frontiers of Our Last Battlefield!!!

As Joseph Soloveichik famously noted…
“All extremism, fanaticism and obscurantism come from a lack of security. A person who is secure cannot be an extremist”...

 

If you are like me, who grew up in the late 1960's; well we were supposed to be a bit of a nerd …, where we dreamed of a brighter future, and loved all those science fiction thingy! In those old days, we like every bit of TV movies like ‘Time Tunnel, Fugitive, Planet of the Apes, and yes Star Trek’ series… You can say I was a sort of a Star Trek fan. So, if you may remember an episode titled "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"! The story features two antagonists, one named Lokai, and the other, as Bele. Now both these species have been at war for eons on their shared planet, Sharon... They resemble like humans in physique, but their pigmentation (skin) is very different; half white, half black, split vertically down the middle of their faces. Bele tries to explain his reasons of this war to Mr. Spock:
"It is obvious to the most simpleminded that Lokai is of an inferior breed." Bele says.

Moderation and Extremism in Islam

E-mail Print PDF

Two facesModeration and Extremism exist in all religious convictions and beliefs including Islam with all its sects. The extent of Islamic extremism varies from time to time and from one place to another.  Until a few decades ago the Arabs were largely moderate Muslims, but this picture has changed dramatically in the last ten or fifteen years as extremism started to rule. This change is the fruit of the political shift of power that took place in the Middle East in the 1970s which brought Saudi Arabia, with its oil wealth and wahhabi commitment, to the leadership of the Arab world instead of Egypt (1).

The pattern of spread of Islamic extremism has been that it affects mainly the younger generation. However, the older generation has not been spared, and it is striking that even secular Arabs sometimes move towards Islamic extremism, after spending decades of their lives as non-practicing Muslims. It is noteworthy that this shift between moderation and extremism is a one-way traffic; moderates can become extremists but extremists do not become moderates. This observation becomes even more significant when we remember that extremists may occasionally leave Islam altogether, but they never move back to moderation. From these observations we may conclude that moderation in Islam is only a temporary phase towards extremism, which is the ultimate stage of true Islam, the Islam preached, practiced and enforced by Mohammed.

Zaynab and the Beast

Beauty and the beastAn analysis of Zaynab’s divine marriage to Mohammed

 

“Your marriages were arranged for you by your fathers, but my marriage was arranged for me by Allah from above the seven heavens”                     
Zaynab to Mohammed’s other wives

The above assertion was Zaynab’s claim to fame, which no other woman had been able to match. Indeed, no other woman was privileged to have her marriage and family life planned for her by Allah, and carefully documented in the preserved tablet and the Quran. Zaynab’s ‘divine’ marriage was not a private matter because its implications still affect the Muslims’ lives today. As a corollary to satisfying Mohammed’s sexual desires, Allah had to ban the highly moral practice of adoption and introduce instead a morally corrupt legislation that allows women to breast feed adult men. Another upshot of this saga is that the Muslims today are still perplexed and divided regarding the wisdom of the ‘barrier (=hijab) verse’ that in effect locks women behind the dark shields of Islam. The historical events mentioned in this article are well documented in the Quran and the reputed sira books and no Muslim can question their authenticity. The analysis, however, is mine and is an attempt to read the small prints to understand that famous Islamic love, or rather lust, story.

The Quran and Hadith Which is more authentic?

E-mail Print PDF
Hadith or QuranThe Quran is considered like the backbone of Islam although the bulk of the religion is made from the sunna, or Mohammed’s traditions, which is based on his hadiths or sayings and considered second to the Quran in its importance. Practicing Islam is impossible without sunna because the Quran doesn’t explain anything about the Islamic rituals or sharia and refers Muslims to take Mohammed’s example which only comes through his hadiths (Q.59:7).  
 
It is frustrating that whenever ‘intellectual’ Muslims are debated they become very quick to distance themselves from any hadith that seems implicate their religion, no matter how authentic that hadith was. Denying a hadith is an easy defence tactic by Muslim apologists in their effort to maintain the integrity of Islam. Their logic is that Islam doesn’t fall by the loss of one hadith or two because Islam is kept up by the Quran.  On the other hand, those Muslims are not ashamed to quote other hadiths, no matter how unauthentic they are, to boost their argument. However, most ordinary Muslims remain strong believers in both the Quran and hadith, which they rightly consider to complement each other. The main stream Muslims consider those who deny the hadith as infidels who would eventually deny the Quran as well.

What about a Paddington-Lakemba Friendship Society

E-mail Print PDF

Gays for HicksIn our multicultural age, there are ever expanding opportunities for various members of the community to get together. This writer would like to suggest the formation of a Paddington- Lakemba Friendship Society in which people from very different parts of Sydney get together for the free exchange of ideas.

Just because many people in Paddington are gay and just because many in Lakemba are Muslim should not deter such gays and Muslims from these areas from having an inter-suburban friendship group. They could meet to share their different backgrounds and dialogue about their different ideas. They could share information about the different aspects of their lifestyles, brainstorm about issues important to them –food, men, women, gays, life and death. There would be so much information to share and there could be interesting banquets at the end of such inter-suburb groups in which shish kebab and falafel is united with duck a l’orange with a bit of Chardonnay. After all, in our multicultural group, it’s all about sharing and learning to live together isn’t it?

New Guidelines for Interfaith

E-mail Print PDF
 There has been much disquiet and uneasiness about the direction Interfaith is taking, especially in relation to Judaism and Christianity. Many writers on this site have complained that it is not “effective”. No one doubts the sincerity of those who founded the Interfaith movement, but I believe it is time to stand back and formulate a new approach. One of the foundation principles espoused by those in the Islamic camp is that Islam is the “newest” Abrahamic faith and so logically replaces Judaism and Christianity. They also claim the importance of earlier prophets like Mohammed and Jesus, but of course, Jews and Christians are often confused by the profiles Islam presents of these two prophets.
 
So maybe what is needed is to take a more structured approach to Interfaith, exploring those things that should be “in common” to all three Abrahamic faiths.

On February 12, the world celebrated the 200th birth anniversary of Charles Darwin, the great scientist, philosopher, and naturalist. Darwin’s contribution to the understanding of the development of biological species is crucial to the evolvement of modern genetics, biology, and medicine. Darwin’s book: The Origin of Species, is perhaps the most influential book in human history to understand how the natural systems works, and demolishes the concept of a creationist world view.

The MARK of the Beast

E-mail Print PDF
The BestThe world is perhaps not far off from solving one of the great mysteries in revealing the true identity of the promised AntiChrist that was predicted in the Bible in the Book of Revelation around 100AD and which can be shown to be entwined with Islamic prophecy. Islam is awaiting the rise of the Caliphate which was killed off in 1924 by Mustafa Ataturk. There is no doubt that Islamic militancy is on the rise as muslims grow in numbers now to around 1.5 billion, and they sense that the West is weakening. Free world leaders such as Obama in the US and Gordon Brown in the UK do NOT understand the real threat that Islam poses, and continually claim that Islam has been hijacked by militants and throw money at what they believe are “moderate” muslims in the hope that terror events will cease. However a careful study of both the Quran and the Bible reveals that Islam is on a collision course with Christianity and believes it is destined to destroy it.

Understanding Muhammad, a Psychobiography

Understanding Mo Book Review: Understanding Muhammad, a Psychobiography

Title: Understanding Muhammad a Psychobiography (Paperback: 280 pages)
Author: Dr. Ali Sina
Date of publication: 1st May 2008, Second edition
Publisher:  Felibri.com

While criticizing Islam, non-Muslims and ex-Muslims often tend to focus on the negative impacts of Islam; such as Islamic terrorism, fundamentalism, immense hate to non-Muslims etc, but in this book, the author, Dr. Ali Sina had gone far beyond. The central argument of this book is not about the dark side of Islam but the psychobiography of its founder, the Prophet Muhammad.

Undoubtedly, Muhammad was a great leader. He fought many offensive battles, tortured, looted and killed innocent people and raped their women, assassinated his critics, ordered mass murder, addicted to pedophilia and reduced thousand others into slavery in the name of God. His conduct was ungodly. But he also successfully twisted the sense of morality of his followers, distorted their sense of ‘Humanness’ and linked “doing good” and “a service to God” to all ungodly things. Briefly, he had given a sacred aura to crime and terrorism. Today what Bin Laden and his ideological brothers are doing is nothing more than what their Prophet had done centuries ago. It is too silly to believe this man a messenger of God.

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.
