What's Wrong With Islam & Muslims?

What's Wrong With Islam & Muslims?

What's Wrong With Islam/Muslims? [This blog post has received 4537 views since it was published four years ago.  Since then, links have been broken by web site changes and new resources have been found.  This post was therefore supplanted by a new page, but it continues to get the hits while the new page does not.  I have therefore updated this post, repairing broken links and adding a few, notably to Ibn Sad's Sira and The Sealed Nectar to make more detailed information available to the reader.  ]

[Update commenced 03/28/'17: several external links have been broken by site changes. I am therefore replacing links to defunct  hadith sites with direct links to texts in the Internet Archive.  I am also adding accessory links in case of new breaks and to make more information available.

Mercenary Mission

    Islam was contrived for the purpose of its founder's personal emolument & empowerment through accrual of spoils & dominion through perpetual war.  Three ayat in Surah Al-Anfal make this matter crystal clear.  Four ahadith confirm it beyond all doubt. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war. Say: "The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger." So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers. Alternative Links

    The spoils are for Allah and Moe; how many stolen sheep, camels & dates can an impotent stone idol eat?  How many captured women can it rape?

8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad ) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) - And Allâh is Able to do all things. Alternative Links


8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. Alternative Links

Allah wants genocide: "great slaughter", Moe wants ransom money.  One ahadith omitted from Khan's translation of Sahih Bukhari speaks volumes about Moe's arrogance & avarice, I quote from Aisha Bewley's translation.

Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: ...It is mentioned from Ibn 'Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

    This saying was Bowdlerized out of the book upon which the USC-MSA hadith database was based.  CMJE no longer links to it  and  the link at Quran explorer also fails.   This is page 108 of Volume 4 of Hilali's translation. Take a close look at the  hadith and the first footnote at the bottom of the page . 

  Update: since  writing this post I have discovered an interesting page in Ibn Khaldun's Muquaddimah wherein he describes Arab culture as  "Savage" and tells us that Arabs got their sustenance by plunder. I have highlighted the pertinent paragraphs for clarity.  Compare these  pages and  observe the pattern they form. Arabs found their sustenance under the shadow of their lances; Moe found his provision  under the shade of his spear. Got a clue yet? 

Sahih Bukhari Vol. 4  pg. 108 Muquaddimah pg.199


Moe got his income with his spear: by raiding camel caravans and Jewish settlements. Later we will see Moe's 'command' and the threat he made in conjunction with it.   Allah gave Moe a special privilege not given to anyone else: accrual of spoils. 

3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331]  Alternative Link


Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us. Alternative links

    Allah was very generous: he gave Moe the keys to the treasures of the world and he made Moe wealthy through conquests. 

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
 Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

Alternative Link

    Narrated Abu Huraira: #2298

    Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah's Apostle he would ask, "Has he left anything to repay his debt?" If he was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer their friend's funeral prayer. When Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests, he said, "I am more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers, so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong to his heirs. "

Islam is aggressively violent, by design; irreparably. I quote Islamic law.

As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year.[Reliance of the Traveller, Book O9.1]  

Alternative Link

Jihad is something  Muslims must do against non-Muslims every year. Exactly what is it?

Chapter O: Jihad No alternative source

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.

What is its practical application?

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad  No alternative source

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…


The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book,…

How does that apply to the United States of America?

Between  1779 and 1815, the Barbary pirates were attacking America’s merchant marine, seizing boats, enslaving their crews and stealing cargo. They demanded payment of tribute for safe passage.

In 1786 Jefferson and John Adams went to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman or (Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). They asked him by what right he extorted money and took slaves. Jefferson reported to Secretary of State John Jay, and to the Congress:

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. [3]

Allah said:

8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]….

Alternate Links

9:29.Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. Alternate Links

Muhammad said:

“I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah. Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387  Alternative Link

Caliph Umar’s general told the Persians:

…Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.” Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386  Alternative Link

Compare the answer of Sidi Haji Abdrahaman to Bukhari4.53.386:

  • ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya
    • that it was their right and duty to make war upon them
  • Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise
    • every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven.
  • whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master
    • to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.

Compare what Allah said to what Moe said:

  • fight them
  • Fight against those who
    • I have been ordered to fight the people

Compare Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9, paragraph 8 to Rodwell’s translation of 9:29:


    Allah said that he would cast terror & did cast terror. Allah commanded Moe to treat victims harshly so as to terrorize other prospective victims and build up military strength to threaten and terrify them.  Allah said that the local Jews were more afraid of Moe and his army than of himself. Moe said that he was made victorious with terror.  Allah, ever generous to his slaves, guarantees them extra credit towards an upgrade in his Celestial Bordello for any step taken to injure or enrage us.

What’s Wrong With Muslims?

If they believe and are faithful, they obey Allah’s commands by joining the Jihad, striving hard with their lives and their wealth. If not called to fight, they support Jihad with Zakat. How did the Holy Land Foundation raise $13M for Hamas?

8:2 The believers are only those who, when Allâh is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’ân) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); Alternate Links  

    [The first six verses of this surah are somewhat cryptic. Use the search engine at yet another Quran browser, linked in the  surah/ayat number above, to search  for "go out" and "spend"  to see how those words are used in context of Jihad.]

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success . Alternate Links

    [Believers are Allah's slaves who fight to make Islam dominant. Note the false assertion that the Gospels promise Paradise for wet work. Click the alternative links and select the Mariful Qur'an, see how the commentator confesses, supposing it was deleted.]

49:15. Only those are the believers who have believed in Allâh and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh. Those! They are the truthful. Alternate Links

61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

61:11.  That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.

61:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad ) to the believers.

What is the relationship between Allah & Muslims?

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’ân.

Alternate Linka

  • They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed.

That’s what Muslims do; they kill.  That’s what’s wrong with Muslims: they worship and obey a bloodthirsty demon who commands them to subjugate us.

Allah's Threat & Promise

  •     To over simplify a little,  Muslims go to:
    • Jihad & Jannah
    • or
    • Jannahm.
    What's your preference: spending half the day copulating with two beautiful virgins who grow new hymens and up to 70 Jewish and Chistian women "taken from the fire" or having your hide burned off and replaced, drinking boiling water and eating poisonus nettles?  So you'd rather go to Jihad than sit at home then. 

Allah's threat

9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2497:
Narrated AbuUmamah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: He who does not join the warlike expedition (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a warrior's family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah with a sudden calamity. Yazid ibn Abdu Rabbihi said in his tradition: 'before the Day of Resurrection".

Allah's Promise

61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. Alternative Links

2787. Narrated AbU Hurairah  I
heard Allah's Messenger jW, saying, "The
example of a Mujahid in Allah's Cause - and
Allah knows better who really strives in His
Cause - is like a person who observes Saum
(fast) and offers Salat (prayer) continuously.
Allah guarantees that He will admit the
Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is
killed, otherwise He will return him to his
home safely with rewards and war booty."

    Jihad will never wnd while Muslims continue to believe in Allah,. his threat and promise!


  • I have Muslim friends; nice people, well behaved.
    • Muslims are explicitly commanded, in several ayat, not to befriend Kuffar. I will cite one of them.
    • 60:1. O you who believe! Take not My enemies and your enemies (i.e. disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism, this Qur’ân, and Muhammad ), and have driven out the Messenger (Muhammad ) and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allâh your Lord! If you have come forth to strive in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure, (then take not these disbelievers and polytheists, etc., as your friends). You show friendship to them in secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal. And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then indeed he has gone (far) astray, (away) from the Straight Path .
  • Most Muslims don’t engage in Jihad.
    • Yet. They haven’t been called by their Imam or Mullah. The Ummah is large and the battlefronts are relatively small. Once a sufficient number have answered the call, the rest are relieved unless an emergency occurs.
      • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 311:

        Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

        The Prophet said, on the day of the Conquest of Mecca, “There is no migration (after the Conquest), but Jihad and good intentions, andwhen you are called for Jihad, you should immediately respond to the call.”

      • Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2497:
        Narrated AbuUmamah:
        The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: He who does not join the warlike expedition (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a warrior’s family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah with a sudden calamity. Yazid ibn Abdu Rabbihi said in his tradition: ‘before the Day of Resurrection”.
  • Jihad is the Muslim's struggle against his ego and temptations.
  • Jihad is an anachronism, only applicable to Moe’s lifetime.
    • Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526 Alternate Links

      Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

      The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

      Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

      I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

Take a cold, clear eyed second look at Abu Dawud 23.3455.

  • give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you,
    • Allah will curse the Muslims if they abandon making war in favor of productive pursuits. 
  • until you return to your original religion.
    • Jihad; making war is their religion!!!!!

    Links to this book are short lived. I found this link in  February of '17 and doubt that it will last long. You can purchase hard copy from Amazon.

Clear as mud, ain't it?  Read it again a few times, then read page 18 of The Book Of Jihad, which brings the fiqh of Jihad together in one handy volume of less than  190 pages. Pay particular attention to the fatwa of Imam al-Shafi'i!

  • These books are more adjuncts to Reliance than substitutes for it. Download and save them for future reference.
    • Risala is the fiqh of the Maliki school of Islamic law. Best printed and scanned, it is also brief and easy to read.  Jihad is covered in Chapter 30.
    • Hedaya is the fiqh of the Hanafi school of Islamic law.  Poorly printed & scanned with an archaic font and arcane vocabulary, it is turgid and difficult reading but the section on Jihad  beginning on page 139 of the second volume, is absolutely vital to understanding Islam! 
o  Hedaya and Risala do not explicitly define Jihad. The Book Of Jihad defines it on pages 8&9. A Summary Of Islamic Jurisprudence defines Jihad on page 472.  The Qur'an does not explicitly define Jihad, but Hilali & Khan defined it in terms of a cost/benefit analysis in a footnote to 2.190 on page 39. A similar definition is included in a footnote on page 1534 of Sahih Bukhari. Compare the glossary entry on page 3700 of Sahih Muslim to the definition of Maghazi on pg 3710: no holy war, but holy battle? ! 

o9.8  While they are not exactly equivalent, Risala and Hedaya  are as close as we can come to Reliance. Turn to them if the links to Reliance are broken.
