Islamic Rituals Voodoo

(A note of caution: The contents of this article might offend some readers)
 Muslim Outrage

Islam is incomplete without its endless, incoherent, and superstitious rituals. The Islamic ritual starts in the dawn, before the sunrise, with the cacophony of prayer call. True Muslims must wake up, do ablution, and walk to the nearest mosque to start the day with prayer. The day ends with the night prayer. This offering of five daily prayers is the minimum a Muslim must do to smell the fragrance of Islamic Paradise. There is severe Islamic penalty for missing a prayer. It is true that other religions do have many rituals. The difference between Islamic rituals and other religions’ is that, while for other religions their rituals are voluntary, in Islam, rituals are forced imposition upon Muslims. For example, if a Christian does not attend Church assemblies, he does not undergo any punitive measures. Attending Sunday Church is a choice a Christian makes. In Islam, it is compulsory for a Muslim to attend a mosque to offer his oblation. If he does not, Sharia law stipulates dreadful punishment. As an example, in a hadis in Sahih Bukhari (1.11.617), Muhammad asked his devout followers to burn the houses of those who do not present themselves for the Islamic prayers. Besides the temporal punishment, Allah decrees excruciating torment in the next world for the Muslims who neglect their prayers. With such draconian measures, it is no wonder that whenever Islam invades an infidel land, the first act in the process of creeping Islamisation is to construct mosques. Fear, greed, intimidation, and terror are the life﷓forces by which Islam rules a Muslim’s life.

Here are a few Islamic rituals and their modality of operation.

Prayer, Recitation (Qur’an), and Ablution/Bath

In Islam, it is compulsory to do ablution before offering a prayer. Sahih Muslim (2.0435) writes that Allah will not accept any prayers without ablution. The rules on Islamic ablution are quite elaborate, sometimes queer, and mind-boggling. A devotee will wash with water his/her hands, face, feet; pour water inside nostrils, then gush it out, gurgle water and pass wet hands around his/her neck to complete the ritual of ablution. There are strict rules on the number of times each limb should be washed, and how many times water is to be gurgled. We shall review, very briefly, a few features of Islamic ablution.
The most important reward from ablution is that it is a cleansing process—not for the body itself, for, even after ablution plenty of dirt and pollution might stay in the body, but from all sins. In reality, a Muslim can commit any number of sins, and just by performing ablution all the sins committed prior to ablution will be expiated. Sahih Muslim (2.0476) writes that if you perform ablution all sins will come out of your body, even from your nails. To entice the Muslims to the complete surrender to this endless daily ritual, Sahih Bukhari (1.4.161) writes that if a Muslim performs perfect ablution Allah forgives sins committed between two prayers. In Sahih Muslim (2.0475) we read that during ablution Allah forgives all sins (committed by eyes) for washing eyes. Ditto for hands, and other parts of the body.

The above few sentences will explain why many Muslim students/residents in non-Muslim countries such as Australia, USA, Canada…and so on demand exclusive ablution facilities in campuses and in other public toilets. They want to do perfect ablution so that whatever sins they commit in infidel lands, such as doing sex with boy friend (infidel), girl friend (infidel), visiting brothels, watching pornography, drinking wine, eating non﷓halal food, joining disco dancing, enjoying infidel parties. Having committed such sins, all they need is to perform a perfect ablution within twenty﷓four hours to absolve themselves from the contrition. Then they can start all over again.
Wudu Mate
 Sinned a little? Here's your solution - Wudu Mate! to ensure a perfect ablution within twenty-four hours to absolve themselves from the contrition.

Mind you, the ritual of ablution does not always end with prayer. In Sunaan Abu Dawud (1.1.0220) we read that one must perform ablution between two sexual intercourses.

Here are a few more rewards Allah has reserved for those Muslims who value the extraordinary purgatory power of Islamic ablution.
  • When you gurgle during ablution, all sins go out of your mouth…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.104)
  • For performing perfect ablution there will be white blaze on your forehead and white blaze on your feet…(Sahih Muslim, 2.0480, 0481)
  • Allah obliterates sins for performing a thorough ablution, walking to the mosque, and waiting for the next prayer…(Sahih Muslim, 2.0485)
  • Ablution removes the sins of the face, mouth, and the nostrils…(Sahih Muslim, 4.1812)
  • If you do perfect ablution, your faces, hands, and feet will be brighter on the day of resurrection…(Sahih Muslim, 2.0479, 0481)

And here are Allah’s punishments for not doing a standard ablution:
  • If you do not wash your feet during ablution, your feet will burn in hell fire…(Sahih Bukhari, 1.3.57)
  • Your feet will taste hell fire if you do not wash them during ablution…(Sahih Muslim, 2.0464)
  • Perform ablution after eating cheese; otherwise fire will touch you…(Sahih Muslim, 3.0687)

Wudu Instructions

In Islam, it is not compulsory to bathe every day. It is quite all right not to bathe for the six days of a week. The only recommended bath is the bathing on Fridays, to attend the juma prayer, although a perfect ablution might do, in case there is shortage of water, or due to inconvenience. When no water is available tayammum will do. This procedure (tayammum) consists of rinsing oneself with dirt or dust. Imam Nasai (1.316) writes that a Muslim can bathe in dirt and dust simply by rolling his body as a camel or a beast does.

However, Islamic bathing (ghusl) is compulsory under certain cases. These are:
  • Convert to Islam, must take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.190, 191)
  • Bury a polytheist, must take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.192)
  • After doing sexual intercourse, and if you ejaculate…(Sahih Muslim, 3.0670)
It is important for a Muslim to offer a prayer correctly. Here are a few salient features of Islamic prayer.
Ghazali (p.1.145) writes that when you stand for prayer your head should perspire, your limbs should tremble and your face should change. He also writes (ibid, p.1.152) that Allah and his angels bless those who wear turban on juma days. This explains why most diehard Islamists we watch on televisions wear turbans. A turban is an Arab’s pride. So is it with Islam, since Islam is nothing but Arabism. A turban﷓clad Islamist is the perfect embodiment of Islam (Arab); it is the symbol, a guarantee of his perfect observance of Islamic prayers.

One more interesting feature of Islamic ritual is the recitation of the Qur'an before and after the prayer, or at any other convenient time, though early morning is the best time to indulge in this ritual. Reciting the Qur'an before and after the prayer earns special benefit points.
Ridiculous prayers
It is important for a Muslim to offer a prayer correctly.

So, what is special about the Qur'an recitation?

The important point is that to earn the maximum score, the Qur'an reciter must weep during recitation. Ghazali (p.2.176) writes that the true believers weep when they recite the Qur’an, and if they cannot weep then they must pretend to do so (ibid, p.1.213).

If you are not careful in reciting the Qur'an in a proper manner, it can bring you disaster. Here is what Ghazali (p.2.176) writes about the devastating power of the Qur'an:
Once Muhammad recited a verse from the Qur’an and at once fell down senseless. Once Umar heard a man reciting a verse on punishment, He (Umar) immediately raised a loud shriek and fell down senseless. He was brought to house but suffered for a month. Abu Dharr listened to the recitation of the Qur’an by Saleh Mari; raised a loud shriek and died on the spot. Imam Shafei once fell unconscious when he listened to the recitation of the Qur’an by a Qazi.

Farting is problematic in Islam. During prayer, a worshipper must not fart. Sahih Bukhari (1.4.137) writes that Allah will not accept a Muslim’s prayer if he/she passes wind during the ritual. The exception occurs if the worshipper farts silently, or the fart does not smell. In such a case, he/she may continue with the prayer (ibid, 1.4.139).

Sunaan Nasai (1.162) writes that if you fart during a prayer you must redo ablution. Sahih Bukhari (9.86.86) says that for a “farter” Allah will not accept his/her prayer until he/she performs another ablution.
Invitation to recite Qur'an from one of the most devout Muslims 

Islamic prayers do not end with five rituals a day. Even when doing sexual intercourse a Muslim must pray so that Satan does not harm the child (Sahih Bukhari, 8.75.397). Sahih Muslim (3.0597, 0598) recommends that after the sexual intercourse, do ablution then go to sleep. Another hadis recommends that after finishing the night prayer do sex with your wife; Muhammad did likewise (Sahih Muslim, 4.1612), so it is Sunna to copy Muhammad's actions.

Taking Care of Your Islamic Penis

One salient feature of all the hadis books is their obsession with penis and women’s pudenda, especially women’s period. In this section I shall illustrate a few outstanding aspects of how a Muslim should take care of his penis. You will learn more about Islamic women’s affairs in a separate episode.

The first and the most important ritual vis-à-vis Islamic penis is that after an ablution a Muslim must sprinkle water on his penis (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0166, 0167). The provision of this ritual is repeated in Sunaan Tirmidhi (136). Sunaan Tirmidhi (135) even writes that during his first revelation, Gabriel taught Muhammad the ritual of ablution and prayer. When Muhammad finished ablution, Gabriel sprinkled water on Muhammad’s private parts. Since Muhammad did this job, it is now compulsory for every Muslim on earth to take care of his penis in this manner.
Genital Wash
Since Muhammad did this job, it is now compulsory for every Muslim on earth to take care of his penis in this manner.

The second most important ritual is that if you (I mean, a Muslim) touch your penis you must do an ablution (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0181). But if you are sexually excited and your semen flows then wash your penis, no need to do ablution (Sunaan Nasai, 1.157, 1195). Sahih Muslim (3.0593) says, for seminal discharge wash your penis and perform ablution. If you touch your penis during prayer then you do not need to redo ablution (Sunaan Nasai, 1.167).

It is quite perplexing, with such ridiculous ahadith. But that is the way Islamic rituals are.

You must take care of your penis after each sexual intercourse. Muhammad did that in this manner:
  • After sexual intercourse with Aisha and Maimuna, Muhammad washed his penis by pouring water from his left hand, then he performed ablution…(Sahih Muslim, 3.0616, 0620)
Here is another interesting hadis. Perhaps, this hadis refers to your hands playing with your penis or with your anus while you were asleep.
  • Do not touch utensils with hands after waking up from sleep because you do not know where your hand had been during sleep…(Sahih Muslim, 2.0541, 0544)
Islamic Eating and Drinking

Eating is a chore in Islam. Islamic eating is not as simple as sitting on a dining chair and eating on a table, the way you want to do. Firstly, in Islam, eating on a dining table is discouraged. Muhammad never ate on a dining table. Devout Muslims eat sitting on floor, and with their hands, making sure the plate of food is resting on the floor. That is why you will notice most jihadists (including Osama b. Ladin, Ayman al﷓Zawahiri) eating with their comrades squatting on floor, and lifting their food from the plate. The sitting posture is also important. Next time you watch an Islamist jihadist’s eating ritual, observe carefully; you will be amazed at the Islamic regimentation, even for such a simple function of filling your stomach. Islam has strict rules for everything, even for eating. That is why the Islamists say, ‘Islam is a complete code of life’.
Iraq 2005
Muhammad never ate on a dining table. Devout Muslims eat sitting on floor, and with their hands, making sure the plate of food is resting on the floor.

The first important rule of Islamic dining is that you must eat with your own hand, or in case you have no hand, let someone feed you with his/her hand.

The second important rule is that you must eat with your right hand or let someone feed you with his/her right hand. You must not eat with your left hand, for Satan eats with left hand. A hadis in Sahih Bukhari (7.65.288, 290) says that you must eat with the right hand and eat of the dish that is nearer to you.

The third important rule is that, having eaten your food; you must lick your fingers. Sahih Bukhari (7.65.366) writes that do not wipe your hand after eating food until you have licked your fingers well. You may choose to lick the fingers by yourself or let someone else lick them. Sahih Muslim (23.5037, 5038) and Sunaan ibn Majah (4.3270) repeat similar ahadith.
Yum! Finger-licking
Yum! Finger-licking! 

The fourth important rule is that having licked your finger (or having someone licked for you), you must lick the bowl, either by holding the dish near your mouth or by bending your mouth to the dish.

Here are the reasons why you must lick the food bowl.
  • After eating lick the bowl; the bowl will seek forgiveness for you…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.3271)
  • After eating lick the dish; the dish will ask Allah for your forgiveness…(Sunaan Tirmidhi, 1121)
A hadis in Sahih Muslim (23.5029, 2030) says that when you drink, you must drink in three gulps. A Muslim must not drink from silver or gold vessels. Sahih Muslim (24.5126, 5128) says if you drink from a silver or gold vessel you drink fire in your belly.

Here are a few more rules on Islamic water﷓drinking:
  •  If a dog licks a vessel, wash it seven times…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.64, 65, 66)
  • If a cat drinks from a vessel, the water remains clean…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.69, 343)
  • If a dog licks a utensil throw away the food and wash the utensil seven times…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.338)
Islamic Sleep Posture
Islam has strict rules on how you sleep. Firstly, you cannot sleep on your stomach. Sunaan Tirmidhi (1226) writes that Allah does not like your lying on your stomach. Another hadis (ibid, 1228) says if you lie on your stomach Allah will send you to hell.
Strickly no sleeping in the mosqe
These Muslim lads will surely go to paradise. After all Muslims are not required to understand instructions in English. 

A Muslim must sleep like a prophet. It means to lie with belly up. Ghazali (p.2.20) writes that to lie with belly up is to sleep like the prophets.

Another ritual for Islamic sleep is that you must do ablution before going to bed, and lie on your right side then recite Allah’s name and glorify Him. If you die in this state then you die in Islam (Sahih Muslim, 35.6544, 6546, 6551).

The reason why a Muslim must do ablution before sleep is this: when you sleep, the ring muscle of your anus is loosened, so you must perform ablution before sleeping (Sunaan Tirmidhi, 122).

Here are a few more Islamic rituals to amuse the readers:
  • Right shoe first when putting on, left shoe first when putting off...(Sahih Bukhari, 7.72.747)
  • Do not dye your beard with black color. Black dye is the sign of the inmates of hell. If you dye your beard black, you will not get the fragrance of paradise. Dye the beard yellow or red and do not pluck white beards…. (Ghazali, p.1.132)

Muslim Vanity
Muslim Vanity? No way! But ... everybody wants to look young and sexy. 
  • Sitting on buttock, even when it hurts the feet, is Sunnah… (Sahih Muslim, 1.1093)
  • The angels accompany the funeral on foot; so do not follow a funeral riding a beast…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 2.20.3171)
  • Do not enter a well-decorated house… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.3360)
  • When entering a market recite sahada… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 3.2235)
  • Put the pen behind your ear, it is the best way of recalling things from memory… (Sunaan Tirmidhi, 1211, 1212)
  • If your wife/husband does not wake up for Morning Prayer, throw water on his/her face…. (Ghazali, p.1.261)
  • If anyone seeks paradise, he should not sleep at night; he who fears Allah takes rest at dawn…(Ghazali, p.4.353)

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

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.

He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Barbary Corsair
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.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.
