a quarter-century fending off radicalism, it is tragic we remain obstinately
blind to the main factor that in fact drives the recruitment support that
terrorist networks need to succeed: radical wahhabi ideology and takfirism.
Aayina: You said, “Muslim Bhaiyo eat as much as you
want”. It was a sarcastic statement, as it is not in your command to permit
someone or a community to perform any action or even in my command or anybody
else. We live in a democratic country, which has the best constitution to
command and guide us, so there is no other authority beyond it.
permission to do anything has been granted by our constitution, nobody has any
right to put obstacle in the citizens’ choices, likes and dislikes. What I believe and have seen since long that
not only milk-feeding animals, but all living beings are looked after and
protected by our countrymen except some selfish people who can not see beyond
are a lot of different opinions that Prophet Mohammad was not descendant of
Ishmael. No clear evidence or proof is available right now to show the
Ishmael settled in Mecca or Medina.
I am a truth seeking Christian I find that there is no uniform interpretation
about Qur’anic verses. The total Shia community in the world believes that
Usman brought changes in the Quran since he destroyed a number of original
manuscripts. Subsequently Usman was killed by the Muslims only due to difference
of opinions even prevailed in the beginning of Islam.
Quran completely failed to bring individual and personal spiritual
transformation in order to possess the real love, joy, peace and unity among
the Muslims. There is no Muslim country in the world which is run on the
teachings of Quran.
Muslims are better in Christian countries rather in their own born countries.
There is no law and order in Muslim countries (RULE OF LAW) and the minorities
in Islamic nations do not have complete freedom.
India has more Muslims than Hindus then they should have India as a Muslim
nation. I do really and practically believe that the vast majority of Hindus
are secular minded and I am proud to be an India as I have every unlimited
freedom to follow my religion and also propagation with respect to others.
Pakistan brought BLASPHEMY LAW in order to curb the freedom of minorities and
this law brought confusion and disorder in Pakistan. There is no real DEMOCRACY
AT ALL as the Military has the final SAY in every serious issue WHEREAS in
India the civilian Govt has the final SAY.
am able to live in India with family members with peace, joy and unity. Let us
live together respecting the feelings of others that is what the ALMIGHTY GOD
wants from every individual.

There could not be a more monstrous lie than the
statement: “Islam has never been a religion of peace, not even for a day.”
The reason is simple: the Qur’an which is preserved
verbatim in the chest of the memorizers since the Prophet’s era offers
undeniable testimony to contradict the above statement. The Qur’anic testimony
– which is sketchy and in bits and pieces as characteristic of the revelation,
is pieced together in the article referenced below, which divides the 23 year
span of the revelation into four phases depending upon the challenges and
priorities of the mission.
conclusions corresponding to each phase of the revelation as tabled below
demonstrate that for the first three phases spanning some 20 years of the
revelation (610-630), the Prophet only waged defensive battles and struck peace
alliances with his bitter enemies. Military action were taken against the
Jewish tribes of Medina but they were provoked by breaches of treaty and high
treason and not any religious motivation.
Yes! The last two years of the Prophet’s mission
(630-632), notably the Tabuk expedition and ultimatum to the Arab pagans for
repeated treaty violations were militarily active but these natural constructs
of history and needed to prevent Islam from disappearing like a flash in the
pan upon the Prophet’s imminent death, to expose the treacherous character of
the hypocrites and to lay the foundation of a model of peace treaty that
offered peace with dignity and full religious, civil and economic rights in
lieu of a levy that all militarily weak nations pay to their powerful
Phase-1 The Meccan Period (610-622).
Conclusion: Not one single verse of the Qur’an from
this period (610-622) carries any instruction or suggestion to the Prophet to
taking to any form of violence in the face of bitter opposition, unmitigated
fury, hostility and persecution. Islam, during this period remained completely
non-violent, espoused complete freedom in religion and enjoined repelling evil
First five years of the Medinite Period (622-627) - Meccans’ Attacks and
Conclusion: The Qur’anic allusions corresponding to
this period demonstrate that in each of the battles (Badr, Uhud, Trench) the
Prophet was forced to engage with attacking armies for survival. One can find
no ground to charge the Prophet of giving false hope to his people such as
assuring them of victory, or divine help in the battle-field, or enticing them
with the promise of any kind of material reward or favor for valor in the battle-field
or of committing any excesses. In fact the Prophet is shown to be lenient by
taking captives rather than killing them all (at Badr) as was the normal rule
of war in the era and remains so to this day. He is also seen to be lenient
with a faction of his followers (the hypocrites) that deserted him on way to
the battlefield (Uhud), readily exempting others from defending Medina at the
Trench war without verifying their excuses and being mild to those who defied
his orders in the battlefield of Uhud.
Thus there is no evidence to project him as a military leader commanding
any trained or organized army or betraying the aura, temperament, martial
astuteness, and moral imperviousness of an army commander. The actions against
the Jewish tribes of Banu Qaynuqah and Banu Nadir are also seen to have been
provoked by repeated treaty violations and not any religious consideration and
were lenient in civilizational relativism. The alleged genocide of Banu
Qurayzah in the immediate aftermath of the Trench War is no more than a legend,
though undoubtedly the chief conspirators must have been slain for high treason
that had put the survival of the Muslim community at stake.
Phase-III The Interlude of Peace (628-630)
Conclusion: The Prophet’s determination to travel to
Mecca virtually unarmed for pilgrimage speaks loudly of his faith in peace and
reconciliation as a tool to win over the most bitter of enemies. Occurring soon after the Trench war, this
unarmed journey into the bastion of his powerful enemies demonstrates that he
would have never crossed limits – let alone committing the alleged massacre of
the Qurayzas just a little while ago in historical terms. The peace treaty with
the Jews of Khyber who had surrendered under siege is another example of mercy
in military history that is replete with most gory accounts of massacre of
besieged people upon surrender. The bloodless integration of Mecca can stand
out as a unique example of compassion and reconciliation in human history.
Phase-IV – Militarily Active Phase (630-632)
Conclusion: Human history is a succession of events
that follow each other, sometimes in the cause and effect sequence - as
historical necessity, and sometimes as a result of hegemonic aspirations or
despotic and irrational whims of its rulers and leaders. Sometimes they bring
good to collective humanity and posterity, and sometimes they bring evil to
humankind and cause enduring sufferings to the posterity. The concluding
militarily vibrant phase of Islam must be judged against these criteria. The
battle of Hunayn was to be fought to defending the recently integrated Mecca.
The Tabuk expedition pitted an assortment of tribal warriors with no experience
of fighting an organized, drilled, resourceful and seasoned Royal army.
Apparently not a historical necessity or rationally driven, the expedition
fully exposed the treacherous character of the hypocrites and demonstrated the
supreme trust of the Prophet in God. The expedition was beset with incalculable
odds and fraught with colossal risks and no one other than a prophet of God
could have embarked on it. Finally, Surah Tawbah was needed to set Islam on a
permanent footing and rid the world – at least the Islamic world of the culture
of loot, murder and arson that conquering armies committed through the Medieval
ages for want of a model of treaty that offered peace with dignity and full
religious, civil and economic rights in lieu of a levy that all militarily weak
nations pay to their powerful neighbors.
TO PUT IN A WORD THE MUSLIM ULAMA WHO DO NOT REFUTE
THE NOTED STATEMENT ACT LIKE THE HYPOCRITES OF THIS ERA. AND THIS COMMENTATOR
MUST THEM THAT:
The Qur’an hurls divine curse on the hypocrites of
its era (9:68, 33:73) calls them liars (9:42 , 9:107, 58:18, 63:1] and deviants
(fasiqun) (9:96, 9:67), charges some of them to being intense in kufr and
hypocrisy (9:97, 9:101), regards them as the most despised among the Prophet’s
followers for opposing God and His Messenger, singles them out as the comrades
of Satan (58:19/20) and relegates them to the lowest depths of the hell-fire
SO THOSE WHO DO NOT PROTEST THE MONSTROUS LIE
AGAINST ISLAM MUST LOOK AT THEMSELVES IN THE MIRROR OF THE QUR'AN BEFORE IT IS
IS A RELIGION OF PEACE AND PLURALISM
I love you Manzurul and your statement “What a great scene for a non-serious website”. Criticism is very important for critical thinking. Critical
thinking is the disciplined art of ensuring that you use the best thinking you
are capable of in any set of circumstances. If you don’t know what others think
of you, in this case about your religion, you may lose contact with reality.
You should at least appreciate that Sultan is doing a yeoman’s service to make
you understand what others think of your religion and your beliefs. He is also
helping to introspect and ask question. Without introspection we will not be
able to move from one level to another.
You shall know the truth, the truth will set you free.
Top Five Misquotations of the Holy Quran
@By Parvez Jamasji. In the absence of any reply so far to
your question, I, as a commoner venture to do so:-
“DOES islam QUALIFY TO BE CALLED A RELIGION ? AS
PER COMMON KNOWLEDGE OF THE MEANING OF THE WORD RELIGION ? ? ?”
In common terminology it means any system of worship
of a deity(s) to attain spirituality and piety and as propagated by a particular
CHURCH – a generic term for all such systems.
If this is even closer to the mark, then Islam is NOT
a religion. In fact it can be argued that Islam as an ideology came to abolish Religion,
its church and its professional operatives (often recognised by their religious
garbs and stance). Particularly the later as they are then accepted as a class “above” than
the rest of the mankind--including womankind, and therefore the rest of humanity
is below them in rank and status.
As given in its source book the Quran, then the
above is a negation of the ideology of Islam, which says is also the common
message of all divine Messengers of the Creator of the Universe-- not a deity
for worship but to obey. Hence it differentiates between:
- Muslims who claim to belong in Islam but ACT out
of and contrary to it……And
- Momin who “Believe in Islam and ACT in accordance”
to its commands that benefit humanity as a whole!
On a lighter note a late friend of mine had put it nicely:
"naam musalman, kaan may aazaan oar dulhan kay sar parsay- Quran" does not make one a musulman.
It’s no surprise the media is trying hard to portray Dr Zakir Naik as a
terr0rist influencer. They are desperately fighting back what is seen as a mass
exodus of the dominating religion to one that is hated regardless of what may
be actually true. Noble preachers like Dr. Naik need to brace themselves for a
period where their words WILL be taken out of context in an effort to brainwash
those who are shallow minded and cannot think for themselves.
