What Happened to the Jewish Tribe Banu Qurayzah?


The Banu Qurayza’s demise is one which critics of Islam manipulate to work their Islamophobic agendas (and in many cases Christian evangelical agendas!). This article is for those who actually want to cut through the Islamophobia whilst understanding the main issues relating to Banu Qurayzah (Quraiza). For those who simply follow ill-informed Christian evangelists/bigots without the merest hint of research or credentials then this piece is not for you.

Firstly, the number of Jews killed in the incident is uncertain. The figures generally banded around number 600-900. Karen Armstrong uses the figure of 700 [1].

Who was the Banu Qurayza?

The Banu Qurayza (Arabic: بني قريظة; بنو قريظة‎ alternate spellings include Quraiza, Qurayzah, Quraytha, and the archaic Koreiza) were a Jewish tribe which lived in northern Arabia, at the oasis of Yathrib (presently known as Medina), until the 7th century, when their conflict with Muhammad led to their demise, after the Invasion of Banu Qurayza, took place in the Dhul Qa‘dah, 5 A.H i.e. in February/March, 627 AD [2]

An Encyclopaedic view on Banu Qurayzah

The most concise depiction of the issues relating to the Jews of Banu Qurayzah that I have come across is from the learned Cyril Glasse’s Encyclopaedia of Islam. Points made by Cyril Glasse shall be presented with interjections of an explanatory nature.

Qurayzah. A Jewish tribe of Medina that betrayed the Muslims during the battle of the Trench. When the Quraysh abandoned the siege of the city, Gabriel commanded the Prophet not to lay down arms until the Qurayzah were subdued. Their hands freed by the departure of the Quraysh and their confederates, the Muslims turned upon the Banu Qurayzah and besieged their defensive towers for twenty five days. [3]

[The Quraysh were the pagan tribe from Mecca who attempted to exterminate the nascent Muslim community (and Prophet Muhammad, p) in the battle of the Trench. They marched up to Medina with the sole intent of annihilating the Muslims. The Qurayzah betrayed the Muslims and allied with the Quraish, thus further jeopardising the existence of the Muslim community]

Who decided the men of Banu Qurayza should be killed and why?

When the Banu Qurayzah surrendered they were judged, as a concession, by Sa’d ibn Muadh, a chief of their former allies, the Aws; lying on his deathbed, in pain from a wound inflicted during the fighting with the Quraysh, he passed a rigorous judgement: the adult men should be put to death and the women and children sold into slavery. [3]

[Later on in this segment, Glasse lets us know this ruling is within the BIBLE (Deut 20:12) and most likely Sa’d ibn Muadh was using their law to judge them.

12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies. {Deuteronomy 20:12-14New International Version (NIV)}

The Christian bigots and other critics do not relay the information that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had NOTHING to do with the judgement which befell the Banu Qurayzah and moreover, the BIBLE, most likely, had more to do with the punishment of this tribe of Jews (Banu Qurayzah).than any other text or teaching]

Cyril Glasse: criticism concerning the Banu Qurayzah is unfair

In books written in the West, the episode has been the occasion for criticism as an example of extreme cruelty. But it was not as unusual event; similar punishment was meted out elsewhere, as is the destruction of the Albigensians in France, for example and for much the same reason. It is the case of the final judgement overtaking people while still in this world. [3]

The Bible teaches such punishments

The irony is quite immense. Some of the Christian bigots and evangelists using this event to shock folk into leaving Islam wind up with egg on their face as the punishment meted out to the Banu Qurayzah seems very much biblical. The extent of ignorance amongst Christian Islamophobes and evangelists regarding the bible never ceases to amaze us – only the ignorant Christians use the incident of the Banu Qurayzah as criticism and/or evangelical pieces.

In the Bible there are numerous comparable cases. Jewish law itself prescribes such treatment for the conquest of a city as a matter of course, even when betrayal is not in question:

[Glasse cites Deuteronomy 20:12, here is the NIV translation of Deuteronomy 20:12-14:

12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies.]

This is perhaps why Sa’d ibn Muadh gave the Qurayzah this sentence; that their own law should be used on them [3]

Exiling Banu Qurayzah Vs. Biblical Judgement (killing) of Banu Qurayzah

Though it may sound quite callous, it must be stated that the wisdom of using the biblical judgement (killing) outweighed the simple exiling of the Banu Qurayzah in the way of the Banu Nadir and Banu Qaynuqa as an exile would have meant a swelling of enemy ranks within Khaybar and advancing a potential threat to the existence of the nascent Muslims society. [3]

Karen Armstrong writes:

The massacre of Qurayzah was a horrible incident, but it would be a mistake to judge it by the standards of our own time. This was a very primitive society: the Muslims themselves had just narrowly escaped extermination, and had Muhammad simply exiled Qurayzah they would have swelled the Jewish opposition in Khaybar and brought another war upon the ummah. In seventh-century Arabia an Arab chief was not expected to show mercy traitors like Qurayzah. The executions sent a grim message to Khaybar and helped to quell the pagan opposition in Medina, since the pagan leaders had been the allies of the rebellious Jews. This was a fight to the death, and everybody had always known the stakes were high. [1]

Hating Jews?

Sadly, critics and some of the unlearned Christian bigots and evangelists use this event to promote the idea of Muslims being inherently anti-Jew. Karen Armstrong corrects such misconstructions:

The struggle did not indicate any hostility towards Jews in general, but only towards the three rebel tribes…

…Smaller Jewish groups continued to live in Medina, and later Jews, like Christians, enjoyed full religious liberty in the Islamic empires. Anti-Semitism is a Christian vice. Hatred of the Jews became marked in the Muslim world only after the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 and the subsequent loss of Arab Palestine. [1]

Kaab Ibn Al Ashraf’s assassination explained


The unsavoury mix of bigoted Christian fundamentalists/missionaries and other internet critics of Islam make much out of the episode concerning Ka’b Ibn Al Ashraf’s (alternatively spelled as Kab/Kaab Bin Al-Ashraf) assassination by the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (p), this post offers the ENTIRE story rather than the hybrid of half-baked ‘information’ and nutty Islamophobic propaganda put forward by Christians and other critics of Islam.

If you are one of these folks who gains his/her information concerning Islam from unqualified Christian fundamentalists and/or other critics this may be a little too informative for your liking. However, if you are somebody who genuinely wants to gain a sincere understanding on the assassination of Ka’b Ibn Al Ashraf then this post is geared towards your needs.

The post comprises of excerpts from the world renowned Sheikh Al Mubarakpuri, the American scholar Sheikh Mustafa Zayed’s comments on the subject and a detailed audio lecture by Dr Bashar Shala as well as additional comments in the way of summary and perspective.

Who was Ka’ Ibn Ashraf?

Ka’ bin Ashraf was the most resentful person among the Jews with Islam and the Muslims, he was the most intent on inflicting harm on Allah’s Messenger (p), and the most zealous advocate of waging war against him. He belonged to the Tai’ but his mother was from Banu Nadeer. He was a wealthy man known for his handsomeness, and a poet living in luxury in his fort south east of Madinah at the rear of Banu Nadeer’s habitations. [1]

Dr Bashar Shala on the Killing of Ka’b ibn al-Ashraf



What did Ka’b ibn al Ashraf do to deserve being killing?

Dr Shala teaches us of the open hatred and animosity Ka’b bin al Ashraf had against Muslims despite having signed a non-aggression treaty with the Muslims. Poets, back then in Arabia, were propaganda tools. After the Muslim victory at the battle of Badr, Ka’b ibn al Ashraf began to insult Prophet Muhammad and Islam as well as inciting violence against Muslims in order to instigate a war with the intent to wipe out the nascent Muslim community. The last stage of Ka’b’s propaganda campaign was to insult the honor of Muslim women.

Sheikh Al Mubarpakpuri writes on Ka’b Al Ashraf’s incitement to war and his general propaganda campaign:

On hearing the news of Badr, he [Ka’b] got terribly frustrated and swore that he would prefer death to life if the news was true. When this was confirmed he wrote poems satirizing Muhammad (p), praising the Quraish and enticing them against the Prophet (p). He then rode to Makkah where he started to activate the fire of war, and kindle the resentment against the Muslims in Madinah…[2]

…He then returned to Madinah to start a fresh campaign of slanderous propaganda that took the form of obscene songs and amorous poems with a view to defaming the Muslim women. At this stage, the situation became unbearable and could no longer be put up with. [3]

Ka’b bin al Ashraf broke the treaty

Dr Bashar Shala mentions the treaty which Ka’b broke included stipulations such as:

1. Jews should be one nation with Muslims

2. Muslims and Jews should advise and protect each other

3. They should have goodness in their treatment of each other.

4. If Muslims are being fought by an enemy then the Jews should side with the Muslims

Yet Ka’b Ibn Al Ashraf BROKE the treaty to such an extent that he sided with the enemies of the Muslims and proceeded to incite a war against the Muslims in order to completely annihilate Muslims!

Dr Shala asks, did Kaab ibn al Ashraf deserve to be killed? The answer he gives is yes. Simply based on the treaty and the fact that Ka’b was inciting war against the Muslims as well as insulting the honor of their women folk.

War and Deceit? Tricking Ka’b and Christian bigots

Dr Bashar Shala does explain the reason behind the necessity to trick Kab ~ 10-11 min stretch.

Some American Christian bigots on the internet make a melodramatic play on the account that the Muslims tricked Ka’b in order to gain the opportunity to kill him. These bigots typically miss that this was within the theatre of war and Ka’b lived in a fort which was heavily defended by guards/servants, hence the tactic of tricking Ka’b into a false sense of security to get him out in the open. During times of declared war, misleading the enemy is accepted by ALL nations including Christian America. The critics’ inconsistency is outlined by Moustafa Zayed:

All martial arts and war tactics are about deceptive techniques to maximize chances for massive blows to the enemy and achieving victory. But when it comes to Muslims it’s crying about moral absolutes vs. expediency. [4]

Why not fight Ka’b rather than assassinate him?

Why not then fight Ibn Al Ashraf in a battle man to man and face to face like the Muslims and the Quraysh did? The reason is that a leader of the hypocrites like Ibn Al Ashraf never attended the battles, yet he publicly plotted and pushed for conspiracies to annihilate the Muslims, only from the safety behind closed doors. [5]

Islamophobic Propaganda: Killed a POET in a curb against freedom of speech!!!

From the information within Dr Bashar Shala’s lecture we learn the manner in which critics portray the incident is misleading to say the least. Robert Spencer is scolded by Sheikh Mustafa Zayed for such misreporting:

Another piece of misinformation is that [Ka’b] Ibn Al Ashraf was only just a poet! Is the author [Robert Spencer] saying that to make it a freedom-of-speech crime? Maybe he is! [6]

…What the author didn’t tell you about our peaceful, just voicing-his-opinion poet, is that he was one of the provokers of the infidels in Mecca that directed the torture, the starvation and the killing of early Muslims, and specifically was one of the leading instigators to push Quraysh and its leaders to go and destroy the Muslims in the battle of Uhud. [7]

…Our lovely poet was one of the conspirators. In Islamic law and any fair law for that matter, if someone gave himself the right to take your life, then he had given you the right to take his same instant in self-defense…not to mention that Ibn Al Ashraf had committed suicide by putting a “wanted” sign over his head when he violated the honorable reputation of the Muslim wives. [8]

A bonus: miracle of healing

Typically the critics miss the healing miracle of the Muslim who was wounded during the assassination of Ka’b bin Al Ashraf:

The group of men came back after fulfilling their mission. One of them Al-Harith bin Aws was wounded by mistake with the swords of his men, and was bleeding badly. When they reached Baqi’ Al-Gharqad, they shouted “Allah is Most Great”. The Prophet (p) heard them and realized that they had killed the enemy of Allah. As they saw him, he said: “Cheerful faces are yours.” In reply, they said: “And yours, O Messenger of Allah.” They handed the head of the tyrant over to him. He entertained Allah’s praise for their success. He then applied his saliva to Al-Harith’s wound and it healed on the spot. [9]

The Bible and Christian Hypocrisy

Many of these critics are Christian missionaries and/or Christian bigots who feign offense at such an incident. Sadder still, these Christians do this despite knowing of the violent teachings within the Old Testament which would propel these Christians into the realms of inconsistency (hypocrisy). I’m sure Christians and Muslims can think of their own Bible verse (s) (involving killing) which would illustrate the point of inconsistency, here is one which does it quite adequately despite not even involving death:

If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity. [Deuteronomy 25:11-12 NIV]

If our Christian friends can accept the amputating of a woman who helps her husband in a fight with another man by attacking her husband’s assailant via a ‘low blow’ then they can certainly accept the killing of a poet who broke a peace treaty whilst attempting to incite the enemy to destroy Muslims!

Conclusion

The killing of Kab bin al Ashraf was not simply the killing of a “poet”. Sadly, we are being misinformed by Christian “experts” with dubious agendas of conversion and propaganda.

ISIS and 'Forced Sex' and 'Extreme Sex' Claims


It's being claimed by right wing sources that ISIS are teaching forced sex is not rape and bunred a woman for not engaging in an 'extreme sex act', ‘Forced sex ISN’T rape and they should be thankful’ – ISIS propaganda uses Koran to justify sex crimes,” “Islamic State burned a woman alive for not engaging in an ‘extreme’ sex act, U.N. official says,” 

Let's be absolutely clear here, forced sex (rape) is not allowed in Islam. Here are the views of Muslim scholars on rape:

Reveal Muslim Scholars Views on Rape For All

And here is a piece on how rape of slaves is not allowed either:

Are Muslims Allowed to Rape Slave Women? No.

Having said that, I'm not sure if these reports of ISIS members claiming such things are true. What is clear is that Islam does not allow rape.

My message to Michelle: Wait, whatever happened to forgiveness? Muslims did something bad to you so you blame the religion and hate all Muslims? So by that logic all African Americans should hate white Christians...after all it was the white Christians who kidnapped, raped and tortured their people while getting rich off their hard work...

Do you see how flawed your argument is?

PLEASE talk to your local imam. Really, have positive dialogues with Muslims. Stop the hatred of Muslims. Try to understand and befriend. Peace.

Michael Ben Ari Exposes Islamophobes


I wonder if Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, FOX and other right wingers will make a song and dance about this? If it was a Palestinian Muslim ripping up the New Testament you just know that the right wing would have been making a big deal out of it. This just speaks volumes about what the right wing are about: Islamophobia.

Ben Ari, of the National Union Party, had his legislative aide, Itamar Ben Gvir, photograph his destruction and released the photo Tuesday to the daily Maariv. Lawmakers had received in their Knesset mailboxes copies of the new edition of the New Testament released by the Bible Society, which distributes Christian books, Ynet reported. Some returned it to the society and others quietly disposed of it.

“Sending the book to lawmakers is a provocation. There is no doubt that this book and all it represents belongs in the garbage can of history,”

Ben Ari said, adding that it “galvanized the murder of millions of Jews” throughout history, including during the Spanish Inquisition. Michael Ben-Ari a religious conservative was photographed tearing up a copy of the New Testament which was given to him by Israeli Evangelicals

Adam Deen Blinded By Sectarian Motives on BBC Panorama?


FYI: I don't describe myself as Sufi nor Salafi. :)

Would it not be a shame if British Muslims were pitching up on national TV and squandering the voice they were being afforded due to desires to self-promote and/or sectarian reasons?

It would be a dereliction of responsibility and trust for a Muslim to do so in the perilous state British Muslims are in as of now.

This is where Adam Deen of the Deen Institute should be questioned. Did Adam Deen misuse his opportunity on BBC's Panorama? Admittedly, I don't have a TV set, I haven't had one for near on a decade so I was made aware of his appearance on the BBC through the internet. What struck me was how Adam Deen was being used by the BBC as a rent-a-quote character to prop up their agenda - you can decide what their agenda was/is.

However, Adam Deen is not a useful idiot. Sure he sounded foolish to anybody willing to scratch the surface and actually think about matters. This was a symbiotic relationship we witnessed. Both parties were using each other, so no, Adam's not a useful idiot.

The BBC were pushing their agenda but rest assured Adam had an agenda of his own to push:

1. Adam appeared as though he was looking to help proscribe his rivals. His sectarian rivals. For those unaware, British Muslim speakers/apologists along with their respective supporters haven't been shy in getting embroiled in embarrassing and immature spats. Adam Deen and his little gang of sectarian supporters aren't too enamoured with the Salafi iERA so it came as no surprise that Adam Deen would allow his sectarian anti-Salafi views to override the common sense narrative that inculcates foreign policy as a motor behind many forms of terrorism. Adam, sensing the opportunity, used the BBC platform to introduce himself to the nation as a Muslim who follows the Whitehall policy of remaining silent of its complicity in the problem of Muslim terrorism all the while over-playing the role of 'toxic theology' and 'puritanical Islam'. Adam spoke like a true sectarian bigot and the BBC did the rest.

Adam got a result for his narrow-minded cause which puts pressure on Salafis such as Haitham al Haddad, iERA and folk at the Green Lane mosque in Birmingham amongst many others.

These poor Muslims all oppose violence yet the scrutiny is well and truly on them now. Not everybody acts in a fair fashion, isn't that right Adam?

2. Self-promotion. Adam, by design or not, wound up pushing himself as the voice of moderation amongst British Muslims. I mean here he is on national TV condemning a bunch of other Muslims (who I repeat have consistently taught against violence and terrorism) and shoving them under the bus. It's like the guy in the office who makes his colleagues look bad in front of his manager. Office politics. It's hard to get a gig on the Beeb, I guess you don't do your credentials any harm in the quest for further air-time by following a sensationalist agenda and towing an agenda-laden line. Sober talk of unjust foreign policy and disaffected youth through unsavoury socio-economic conditions does not cut the mustard when it comes to sensationalism. People want to see bogeymen. Adam pointed at his sectarian enemies. The BBC producers aren't stupid, they expected him to do so. Predictable. Predictable because they knew of his sectarian bias.


Adam effectively used his platform to settle a few sectarian rivalries, self promote himself (knowingly or unknowingly) as the voice plus face of moderation and to curry favour from the establishment - through hiding the very real and obvious influence of foreign policy on radicalising already-disaffected young men and women.

Now you tell me, how in the world did ANY of Adam's air-time on the BBC help the average Muslim youth in Britain? In fact, it made matters worse for many Muslims as his rampant sectarian bigotry led him to amplify the calls to proscribe and label many Muslim leaders in the UK who are railing against terrorism as 'non violent extremists' following 'toxic theology' and 'puritanical Islam'.

What an absolute disaster Adam was. Adam, next time, do us all a favour and just ask your wife to take your spot or better still just ask them to get real scholars and intellectuals such as Hamza Yusuf and Dr Yasir Qadhi. It's more in the interest of British Muslims. I think I can safely assume the rest of us British Muslims would rather have less testosterone fuelled sectarian bigotry, less self-focus and more wisdom, common sense and cohesion...please!

Adam Deen vs Asghar Bukhari, George Galloway,  Experts (and possibly vs his wife too!!!)




Is 'toxic theology' behind 98% of terrorist attacks, Adam?

When asked about his motive by an eyewitness, ‎one of the men responded, “because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries”, “I killed ‎him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan”. He ‎added: “You will never be safe. Remove your government”. What’s more the style of the attack, ‎undertaken and filmed in full public view with the objective of publicising the actions to a wider ‎audience, is reminiscent of a strategy employed by the media savvy loose network, often referred ‎to as Al Qaida. While there is evidence to suggest Michael Adebolajo became radicalised through ‎the now-banned al-Muhijaroun, the group is well known to security services who monitor it closely ‎and it treads a fine line between espousing hate and undertaking violent actions. Though the ‎group may have laid the foundations for a binary and simplistic worldview, it is likely other ‎inspiration was involved in the move to action. [Myriam Francois-Cerrah]





Extremists point to western foreign policy to explain their acts. Why do we ignore them?

Often, the likes of Michael Adebowale and Michael Adebolajo, who used violence to make “points” about the Muslim world in Woolwich, aren’t “religious fanatics”. The trigger we refuse to see is our foreign policy.

Did you know that the alleged ringleader in the 11 September 2001 attacks had originally planned to land one of the hijacked US airliners and give a speech to the assembled press corps? Can you guess what he wanted to rant about, live on Fox News? Seventy-two virgins in heaven? Nope. The need for sharia law? Guess again. According to the report of the official 9/11 commission, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had intended to “deliver a speech excoriating US support for Israel . . . and repressive governments in the Arab world”.

In the vexed discussion about extremism and radicalisation, foreign policy is the issue that dare not speak its name. Our leaders zealously police the parameters of the debate, pre-emptively warning off those who might dare connect the dots between wars abroad and terror at home.

...Yet establishment figures continue to denounce those of us who cite the radicalising role of foreign policy as (to quote the former US state department spokesman James Rubin) “excuse-makers” for al-Qaeda. To explain is not to excuse. The inconvenient truth for Rubin, Johnson et al is that Muslim extremists usually cite political, not theological, justifications for their horrendous crimes.

Asked by the judge at his trial in 2010 how he could justify planting a bomb in a crowded public place, the “Times Square bomber”, Faisal Shahzad, raised the impact of US drone strikes in his native Pakistan that “kill women, children, they kill everybody”. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “underwear bomber” who tried to blow up a US-bound airliner in December 2009, told the judge in his trial that he had worn an explosive device “to avenge the killing of my Muslim brothers and sisters” against “the tyranny of the United States”. Then there is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old suspect in the Bos - ton Marathon bombings. According to the Washington Post, Tsarnaev “told interrogators that the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan motivated him and his brother to carry out the attack”. Ah, say the critics, but 9/11 preceded both the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and Obama’s drone war in Pakistan. They did – but the west’s support for Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians preceded 9/11. As did the murderous Anglo-American sanctions against Iraq. What did the mastermind of the first al-Qaeda attack on the Twin Towers in 1993, Ramzi Yousef, say at his trial in 1998? “You have [a] so-called economic embargo [on Iraq] which kills nobody other than children and elderly people.” [Mehdi Hasan]

You may know the Unitarian Christians reject theTrinity but perhaps you don't know that the Hebrew Israelites do not consider the Trinity to be Biblical either...despite believing in the Old and New Testament.

Lithuanian Woman on Islam


If you're a Non-Muslim in Lithuania, please look into Islam with an open heart. This Lithuanian girl was born in a Christian family.

She became upset with Western decadence such as pornography, the sex industry, suicide rates and the controlled media. She began to look into Islam and also visited an Arabic country where she saw women were treated with great respect. She compared her findings and her experiences with what the anti-Muslim critics were saying. She became a Muslim.

Hebrew Israelites Deceit: Jesus was Black

 The Prophet considered racism as “ignorance”When his Arab Companion Abu Dharr called Bilal 'son of the black woman', the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) got angry and told him: 'You are a man who has ignorance in him.' Abu Dharr felt such a great remorse that he put his cheek on the ground and asked Bilal to tread on his other cheek if he’d like to.

Islamophobic Propaganda of: Faith to Faithless Website and Imtiaz Shams


I remember a Pakistani ex Muslim guy in Ireland a few years back saying he does not want to become a propaganda tool (against Islam) when asked why he does not make videos about his leaving of Islam. IIRC

Yet now, in this climate of hatred of Muslims and Islam, in this age of grabbing Muslim natural resources and in this desire to 'reform' Islam on the part of secular Western liberal supremacists there's a new group of people who are encouraged, promoted and offered financial plus material support to do their bidding. The bidding of the secular Western liberal supremacist.

Of course, the secular Western liberal supremacists fear (and rightly so) being labelled racist and/or Islamophobic when they come out and rail against Islam and Muslims. However, these are the very same nations who used to impose the Bible and White Supremacy onto others so they have been around a long while and shift from one supreme ideal they cherish to another to look down at others in their efforts to make themselves seem superior.

Christianity...well that one was stamped out here in the West a while ago. White supremacy...the likes of MLK, Malcolm X and the whole civil rights movement put paid to that.

What do they now rally around to hold up as their beacon of light that they want to impose on the rest of the world all the while sneering, mocking and deriding all those who resist as backward inferiors?

They now have something called secular Western liberal supremacy. They make the rules up and every other culture is obliged to obey or lose their financial aid as well as subjected to a vicious propaganda campaign in an effort to get the 'other' to conform.

If a group of Germans were doing it in the 1940s people would have been crying Nazism.

What's their plan for the Muslims? It's to get gullible Muslims and exMuslims to do their bidding.

This is where folk such as Imtiaz Shams and organisations such as CEMB and Faith to Faithless come in. It's no coincidence liberal media outlets give them a platform. It's no coincidence they are organised. It's no coincidence that they exist.

Wake up to the propaganda campaign.

While our mosque leaders still struggle to even speak English yet alone understand what's going on in the cyberwolrd and the real world on a day to day basis the Western liberal supremacists are circling along with their pawns (ex Muslims and Uncle Tom types).

I fear for British Muslims. We are not organised. We are not equipped. We are not funded. We have no amplification to our voice. We are effectively voiceless because we are so disunited.

I hope people like Imtiaz Shams can see our pain and actually come on to our side and help us out. No Muslim in Britain or Europe should be pressurised to give up faith...this is exactly what's happening.

Growing Problem of Islamophobia in Britain


More than 47,000 hate crimes were recorded between 2012 and 2014.

Hate crimes against Muslims in Britain have spiked in the last three years, police documents reveal. Figures obtained through Freedom of Information requests show that racially or religiously aggravated harassment crimes surged from 15,249 to 17,605 between 2012 and 2014.

More than 47,000 hate crimes were recorded over the same time period.

One example occurred in August 2014, when a 42-year-old man hung swastikas and Ku Klux Klan symbols over the site where a mosque was going to be built, writing the words “Burn in hell” over flags.

Other incidents involved football fans tearing pages from the Koran to make confetti. “With racist bullying in schools attributed to Islamophobia on the rise according to ChildLine, job discrimination against Muslims commonplace and regular attacks against Muslims ... there is a serious concern that needs to be both acknowledged and tackled,” said Dr Shuja Shafi, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain.

Britain First's Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding Learn About Anti-Semitism and Christianity


Britain First's Plot Backfires: Islam and Christianity - Anti Semitism

Britain First's Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding were trying to cause further divisions between British Jews and British Muslims

Jayda Fransen was trying to frame Islam as being Anti-Semitic yet when put alongside experts in Islam we just see how lacking in intellectual and scholarly fortitude her propaganda piece was.

It takes somebody like Professor Tariq Ramadan, of Oxford University, to blow away their propaganda piece and Dr Timothy Winter, of Cambridge University, to teach us about Christian History and Anti-Semitism.

Britain First claims to be a Christian organisation so I'm not sure why the two most prominent members of Britain First are unaware of Christian Anti-Semitic history.

Britain First Members Getting Punched in the Nose Intellectually


Numerous well-known Islamic jurists and scholars have affirmed that there is no religious basis of prejudice against Jews.
 
...Tariq Ramadan says: 'there is nothing in Islam that gives legitimization to Judeophobia, xenophobia and the rejection of any human being because of his religion or group to which he belongs. Anti-Semitism has no justification in Islam, the message of which demands respect for the Jewish religion and spirit, which are considered a noble expression of the People of the Book'

...Historically, we have many precedents of goodwill shown by Muslims to the Jews. Jews thrived for four hundred years in al-Andalus amidst the Muslims during the peak of medieval Islamic civilisation.

...Anti-Semitism is against the basics of Islam. Islam promotes humility and warns against keeping enmity and anger in one's heart. It is a positive sign that many Muslim intellectuals, such as Akbar Ahmed and Tariq Ramadan, are speaking out against anti-Semitism by Muslims. It is also crucial that the Jewish leaders also follow suit and encourage better understanding between Muslims and Jews.

Question About Gigi Hadid + Her Non Muslim Friends Invited to Islam


As far as I can tell Gigi Hadid has not confirmed nor denied being a Muslim, which follows this snippet from Glam Monitor:

Her heritage as well as her religion is her personal life, after all. She has been asked quite a few times whether she is Muslim or Christian..........As Hadid herself says “You don’t want to share every single aspect of your life with the world… You want to keep a sense of privacy”.

Thus as of now most of us on the internet do not know.

Muslims on the net should be courteous to her and not be derogatory. She's a human with feelings so offer her encouragement in good. Try to set a good mature example for others to follow so people are impressed with Muslim behaviour on internet platforms such as Twitter and Instagram.

As for any of Gigi Hadid's Non-Muslim colleagues, friends and fans I'd like to invite them to Islam.

Islam is a simple religion that teaches us to worship God alone and to believe in all the Prophets of God including Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon all the Prophets). Interestingly enough for Catholics and Protestants, Islam is the religion that Jesus (p) will follow upon his second coming.



Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Messiah is a Human Not God!


Professor Reza Aslan reveals the Jews were expecting a human messiah - they were not expecting God. This militates against the Trinitarian view of Jesus being a god-man. It further points to the Islamic view of Jesus (p).

There is, however, one thing about which all the prophecies seem to agree: the messiah is a human being, not divine. Belief in a divine messiah would have been anathema to everything Judaism represents, which is why, without exception, every text in the Hebrew Bible dealing with the messiah presents him  as performing his messianic functions on earth, not in heaven.  Zealot, The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, Reza Aslan, The Westbourne Press, 2013, p32

Ergun Caner 's Friend Tony Nolan's Story Questioned - Another Scandal?


We all know about Ergun Caner. We all saw how his lies were exposed in public view. However, today I received a few FaceBook private messages from a trainee Baptist minister who asked me look into Tony Nolan.

I had never heard of Tony Nolan, however this trainee Baptist minister mentioned Tony Nolan is a friend of Ergun Caner and has an elaborate backstory story. When his fellow Christian doubts his story and thinks he's about the cash then it's time to start to ask questions of Tony Nolan, the author of  'Hurt Healer'.

Perhaps Tony can provide us with some documentation and evidence for some of his claims. I'm not saying this guy is lying, I'm just asking him to provide some evidence to support his claims as questions are being asked

Here's my conversation with the Baptist trainee pastor, whose identity has been censored.

Christian Trainee Minister: Yahya, You think some Christians make up stories to win converts. So do I. As we both know, Ergun Caner did. And maybe even Walid Shoebat. I'm glad Mohammed Khan did the work to expose Caner.

Me: Do you think there are other churches in America where there are other con men making stories up to try and convert Muslims? I appreciate your honesty [Name censored]

Christian Trainee Minister: Well, yes and no. We don't have a lot of Muslims here The con men know people are afraid of Muslims So they try to make Americans scared and convert them (and sell book) that way Do you know of a man named Tony Nolan?

Me: No, never heard of Tony Nolan Ah so you think the canards are more about making money through books and converting people through hatred of Muslims?

Christian Trainee Minister: He is a friend of Ergun Caner Yes, they don't care about converts, they care about customers Tony Nolan preaches with Caner and Caner's friends He, too, has an emotional back story

Me: Do you think this Tony Nolan fella is lying too?

Christian Trainee Minister: He claims to have been sold by his parents for $200

Me: Perhaps, we should look into him.

Christian Trainee Minister: Yes, I suspect he is That is why I contacted you Nolan has an emotional back story that he uses to convert people Like his friend Caner I think they are both liars

Me: You know what, I will try to look into him. This is sad. I respect your honesty Are you still training to be a Baptist minister?

Christian Trainee Minister: Please do, Thank you. I am And this man is a baptist minister He goes to baptist churches and tells his Emontional stories And tries to scare people into converting And sells tickets to concerts for big money I think he just wants to make money, not save souls And I think he is a liar, it makes me very sad
