Islam 101 Sheik Al-Qaradawi



Yep, that’s what he said.

Here’s the problem facing kumbayah Christians and Jews who believe that Islam is a religion of peace, because they know friendly Muslims who say warm and fuzzy things about co-existence with the people of other religions. While they may in fact know of such people (who even believe what they’re saying) the fact remains that those who preach basic Islam 101, can thoroughly prove their intolerant positions, word for word, from their Islamic texts and win the day.

As I have said an umpteenth number of times, it’s entirely immaterial whether you have mild Muslim friends or know of mild Muslims, the fact remains that the violent/intolerant/bigoted/antisemitic verses of the koran, hadiths and sunna of Mohamed, are as valid today as they were when they were first jotted down. These verses are immutable, meaning that they can’t be watered down, ignored or completely done away with.

While some Muslim communities outside of the Islamic world, after having been influenced by their surroundings, chose to ignore these destructive verses, they are soon turned by  Muslims who think otherwise on the strength of their arguments. This is the naked truth, and while I applaud those Muslims who reject large portions of their own texts, I have nothing to offer them in the way of comfort however, when the Salafists and Wahhabists come to town.

  1. Here’s islam in a nutshell.

    “The Apostle [Mohammed] said ‘Kill any Jew that falls into your power’. Thereupon Muhayyisa b. Masud leapt upon Ibn Sunayana, a Jewish merchant with whom they had social and business relations, and killed him. [His brother] Huwayyisa was not a Muslim at the time though he was the elder brother. When Muhayyisa killed him [the jewish merchant] Huwayyisa began to beat him [his brother], saying, ‘You enemy of God … much of the fat on your belly comes from his wealth … if Mohammed had ordered you to kill me would you have killed me?’ He said, ‘Yes, by God, had he ordered me to cut off your head I would have done so.’ He [the non-muslim brother] exclaimed, ‘By God, a religion which can bring you this is marvellous!’, and he became a Muslim”.
