Just some general facts to begin with. Islam is a religion not a race. it is based on the teachings of Mohammed and loosely on the beginning of the Old Testament. In 2010, there were 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide which is approximately 23% of the worldwide populationhttps://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwixtrCt0_fRAhXhlFQKHaFlBdcQFggcMAE&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FIslam_by_country&usg=AFQjCNFtNxi0JtNZsrQ3k39Nm2jYsXUqaA&sig2=YqfBwzbggFbVqgni8tSoYQ&bvm=bv.146094739,d.cGw according to . It is also the fastest growing religion.
Muslims follow the Quran which was written by Mohammed. The Haddith is a historical writing by people who knew Mohammed so it is more of a historical account of Mohammed. The Shariah is laws based on the Quran. If you want to know about Sharia Law go to http://www.billionbibles.org/sharia/sharia-law.h
Here is just a small sample of what Sharia Law enforces:
• Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand.
• Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
• Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
• Criticizing or denying Allah, the god of Islam is punishable by death.
• A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death.
• A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
• A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
• A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
• Girls’ clitoris should be cut (Muhammad’s words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
• A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
• A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
• A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a woman needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
• A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
• Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
• A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
• A woman’s testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man’s.
• A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits.
• A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval).
• A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
• Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal”.
• Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
After reading this small sample, you can see that Sharia Law is very violent. If you believe that Islam is a religion of peace you are sadly mistaken. Just take a look at it’s history. Literally, the religion of the Muslim has been at “war” since a hundred years after Mohammed!
What is an infidel? Here is the definition according to the Quora, a website I found. In the name of Allah. An infidel is a person who does not believe in Allah and His Oneness. In other words, anyone who does not believe Allah is the one and only GOD. So, since the US has only a 1% Muslim population, 99% of Americans are considered an infidel.
This is what the Quran says to do to unbelievers/infidels/idolaters:
Chapter 8, verse 12: “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”
Chapter 9, verse 5: “Slay the idolaters wherever you find them and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush….”
The beginning of the book of Mohammed almost seems peaceful but as you read it, it gets more and more violent. Also, reading the Quran you will discover that according to the book, two women are worth one man. A woman’s value is half that as her male counterpart. I quote these verses from the following, http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/women-worth-less.aspx:
“The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females”
(see also verse
). In Islam, sexism is mathematically established.
Quran (2:282) – (Court testimony) “And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women.” Muslim apologists offer creative explanations to explain why Allah felt that a man’s testimony in court should be valued twice as highly as a woman’s, but studies consistently show that women are actually less likely to tell lies than men, meaning that they make more reliable witnesses.
Quran (2:228) – “and the men are a degree above them [women]”
Quran (5:6) – “And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it” Men are to rub dirt on their hands, if there is no water to purify them, following casual contact with a woman (such as shaking hands).
Quran (24:31) – Women are to lower their gaze around men, so they do not look them in the eye. (To be fair, men are told to do the same thing in the prior verse).
Quran (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…”A man has dominion over his wives’ bodies as he does his land. This verse is overtly sexual. There is some dispute as to whether it is referring to the practice of anal intercourse. If this is what Muhammad meant, then it would appear to contradict what he said in Muslim (8:3365).
Quran (4:3) – (Wife-to-husband ratio) “Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four” Inequality by numbers.
Quran (53:27) – “Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.” Angels are sublime beings, and would therefore be male.
Quran (4:24) and Quran (33:50) – A man is permitted to take women as sex slaves outside of marriage. Note that the verse distinguishes wives from captives (those whom they right hand possesses).
I will cover more on Islam at a later date.
