Islam 101 For Clergymen & Congregants

Islam 101 For Clergy & Congregants

    Is Islam a "religion of peace"?  Do Christians and Muslms worship the same deity?  Is Jesus Muslim?  What is Jihad?  Can we believe whatever the Pope, the President and  self-appointed experts tell us?   How do we discover the truth without wasting hundreds of hours slogging through thousands of pages of dense, redundant text? 

    While it is best to read the Qur'am amd at least one of the authentic hadith collections, you can learn much from significant samples of those texts and others which form a congruent pattern that tells us what Islam really is.  The most significant quotes have been used in blog posts which have been compiled into pdf format so that we can read and share them by embedding them in blog posts and attaching them to emails.  When possible, the quotes are linked to source texts for ease in contextual research and verification. 

Religion of Peace?

    Shrub to the contrary not withstanding, Islam is perpetual war. Kauthar ibn al-Muttalib, who bestowed upon himself the honorific title "Muhammad". herinafter referred to as Moe, created Islam for his personal emolument and empowerment through the profession of piracy and extortion.  There is considerable redundancy in these files, once you have read all them, you will have a good grasp of the truth about Islam.

    Jihad is holy war. Holy war is fi sibyl Allah: to make his word dominant. In other words, to impose Shari'ah on the world by intimidation or force.  Jihad an-Nafs: struggle against ego and temptation, is deprecated and the hadith on which it is founded rated false. Read the Jihad books of the six canonical hadith collections; you will not find therein an example of Jihad an-Nafs, they are all about qital: fighting & killing.

Religion of Terrorism?

    Each year the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council resolve that Islam can not and must not be associated with or equated to terrorism. When they do, I contumaciously rub their snouts in the truth.

    There is one fatal fact which must be drilled home. Terror is a state of abject hopeless fear, inescapable impending doom. Most of the Quranic mentions refer to the terror of the last day when Allah will send the sinners to Hell. In the hadith, it is described as causing nursing mothers to abandon their infants, pregnant women to drop their loads and children to turn hoary headed.

    One book which is out of print because they do not want us to know about it, illustrates the Islamic attitude towards terror. Terror is at once a means and an end; the condition they desire to impose upon us.

   Brig. S.K. Malik wrote The Qur'anic Concept of War as a training manual for the army of Pakistan.  His analysis will help you to comprehend their strategy. Terror is both a means and an end.  This paragraph comes from the bottom of page 59. [Emphasis added.]

Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only
a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.

    There is one necessary prerequisite for instilling terror: the destruction of our faith. Islam's strong faith shields Muslims from being terrorized. This paragraph comes from page 60. [Emphasis added.]

Terror cannot be struck into the hearts of an army by merely
 cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes
of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness
of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's
Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary;
spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be
produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy, 
it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An
invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads
to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur'an has
the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable
us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of
strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective,
be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy
that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule
is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is
equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion
today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence
must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.

    Marxism and Islam share a need to destroy our faith in order to conquer us. That is a clue for you.

Are Allah & Jehovah The Same?

    Is Jehovah al-Makar: the best deceiver? Who might be? (Google the 99 names of Allah.) Does Jehovah demand "great slaugher" as the price of admission to Paradise?  Is Paradise a carnal garden? If you search Google for Allah you will find out that it is a moon deity worshiped by Arabs under that name and others including Sin and Moloch. But there is more!

Is Jesus Muslim?

    Islam denies his paternity, divinity, crucifixion, death & resurrection yet it claims him as a Muslim and a Prophet. Islam did not exist when Jesus walked the Levant, it was not contrived until 610. Did Jesus recite Shehada? Did he perform Hajj? Did he perform Jihad?  Yet Moe claimed to be his paternal half brother and in the next world, his step father. Go figure. 

    Who was the first Muslim? If Moe invented Islam and was the first Muslim, then Jesus is not Muslim.
6:14. Say (O Muhammad : "Shall I take as a Walî (helper, protector, etc.) any other than Allâh, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? And it is He Who feeds but is not fed." Say: "Verily, I am commanded to be the first of those who submit themselves to Allâh (as Muslims)." And be not you (O Muhammad  of the Mushrikûn [polytheists, pagans, idolaters and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh].
6:162. Say (O Muhammad : "Verily, my Salât (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allâh, the Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists).
6:163. "He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am the first of the Muslims."


    Much of what we hear and see about Islamic law is untrue. In the USA and Westerm Europe, the emphasis is on family law. There are some details they will not divulge.  A Christian woman, divorced by a Muslim, can  not obtain child custody. A divorced Muslima loses custody of her children upon remarriage. A Muslim can compel his pre-pubescnt virgin daughter to marry the man of his choice and can not be executed for killing his offspring.

Further Reading

    The Qur'an is the most important Islamic text. I use the Hilali/Khan translation. Its large size is offset by the inclusion of bracketed expressions from three tafsirs and the translator's informative footnotes.
