In Search of Real Islam ~ the UK’s Mehdi Hassan Unmasked

images (17)When I was on The Last Stand Radio Show the other night, I had said one of the things we as non-Muslims needed to do is become more assertive and challenge Muslim propagandists head-on. We just cannot allow their deception to go unchallenged. Today we see another example of this from our mate and guest blogger, The London Humanist. (www. LondonHumanist.com)

Responding to Mehdi Hasan

Whether Islam as an ideology has anything to do with young British Muslims becoming jihadis is, surprisingly, still a hotly debated topic. Despite jihadis telling us in no obscure terms that it is their very religious beliefs that motivate their actions, some public figures, including US President Barack Obama, beg to disagree.

The amount of intellectual dishonesty that goes into the effort to disconnect Islamic terrorism from Islam is insurmountable. Mehdi Hasan, a political editor of Huffington Post UK and a presenter on Al Jazeera, is at the forefront of this movement in the UK. Sadly, he uses a prominent online publication as his pulpit and takes full advantage of Huffington Post’s reputation and reach to spread his views.

A recent article by Mehdi Hasan is titled “What the Jihadists Who Bought ‘Islam For Dummies’ on Amazon Tell Us About Radicalisation”. There, Mr. Hasan tries to argue that “the 1,400-year-old Islamic faith has little to do with the modern jihadist movement”.

Islam for Dummies

Arguments and refutations

Mehdi spends the first half of the article developing an argument that jihadis are, supposedly, not devout Muslims. Jihadis are, it turns out, religious novices; they lack religious literacy and are light on practice. Hence, by extension, their actions cannot be driven by religion.

The core fallacy of this argument is that it is trying to refute an allegation that does not exist. Nobody claims that breadth of Qur’anic knowledge or the number of memorized hadith is in any way associated with extremist behavior. All that’s needed to cause violent religious zealotry is belief in the supernatural and a few “divine dispensations” that provide guidance on how exactly to treat unbelievers.

And this is exactly what we see.

When jihadis hit Twitter to post pictures of beheaded enemies, they don’t tend to quote “Koran for Dummies”. Instead, they quote from the very heart of Islamic sacred texts that are taught around the world in mosques, Islamic schools and universities. They live and, most importantly, die by these texts. Here are some examples.

Forced conversion to Islam

*Dhul-l–Khulasa was a house in Yemen belonging to the tribe of Khatham and Bajaila, and in it there were idols which were worshipped, and it was called Al-Ka’ba.” Jarir went there, burnt it with fire and dismantled it. When Jarir reached Yemen, there was a man who used to foretell and give good omens by casting arrows of divination. Someone said to him. “The messenger of Allah’s Apostle is present here and if he should get hold of you, he would chop off your neck.” One day while he was using them (i.e. arrows of divination), Jarir stopped there and said to him, “Break them (i.e. the arrows) and **testify that None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, or else I will chop off your neck.”** So the man broke those arrows and testified that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah. Then Jarir sent a man called Abu Artata from the tribe of Ahmas to the Prophet to convey the good news (of destroying Dhu-l-Khalasa). So when the messenger reached the Prophet, he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! By Him Who sent you with the Truth, I did not leave it till it was like a scabby camel.” Then the Prophet blessed the horses of Ahmas and their men five times.* **(Bukhari 5:59:643)**

*It is reported on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah, and he who professed it was guaranteed the protection of his property and life on my behalf except for the right affairs rest with Allah.* **(Muslim 1:30)**

Fighting Unbelievers

*The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom.* **(Qur’an 5:33)**

*Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.* **(Muslim 41:6985, 41:6981, 41:6982, 41:6983, 41:6984)**

Inspiring hatred towards other religions

*Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: Ikrimah reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas, saying: I think the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) said: When one of you prays without a sutrah, a dog, an ass, a pig, a Jew, a Magian, and a woman cut off his prayer, but it will suffice if they pass in front of him at a distance of over a stone’s throw.* **(Abu Dawud 2:704)**

The second part of the article tries to suggest that jihadis got their religion all wrong. Mehdi claims that extremists are fed a “perverted, politicized version of Islam”, and its function is limited to being an “emotional vehicle” to articulate anger. This echoes a similar claim, often heard from Western politicians (usually Left-wing Liberals) that jihadis are not real Muslims and do not represent any religion.

No compulsion in religion

This line of argument is flawed in multiple ways.

First, it is certainly not up to us to tell jihadis what their identities really are. Every single ISIS fighter identifies himself as a Muslim, and I see no credible reason to discount or ignore their statements of faith. Besides, it is the very statement of faith, pronounced publicly in Arabic, that makes someone a new Muslim in the eyes of the religious community.

Second, Islamic texts are politicized by nature. Qur’an and volumes of Hadith meticulously deal with all aspects of character, conduct and governance that human beings are expected to uphold on Earth. Detailed divine dispensations are given on topics ranging from the right ways to have sex with one’s spouse to how to govern, how to enter treaties with other states, and how to run finances of an Islamic State.

Third, history confirms the politicized nature of Islamic doctrines. A massive military expansion of the first Islamic State – the Noble Caliphate – that conquered Persia, Byzantine, Anatolia and the whole of North Africa, was executed under the banner of war against apostasy. Here, Islamic principles served as an ideological fuel for an aggressive economic and political war – full of beheadings and similar atrocities.

Finally, there is no such thing as one real Islam. An ideology is formed on the basis of source material and interpretations. In case of Islam, the source material – the sacred texts of Qur’an and Hadith – is incredibly complex and highly polarizing. Islamic teachings developed in history covering periods of relative peace as well as brutalities and war. The verses that we find in the sacred texts reflect this polarization.

Here are some examples.

No compulsion in religion

This verse was supposedly revealed to Muhammad when Muslims were a heavily prosecuted Meccan minority.

*There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.* **(Qur’an 2:256)**

Islam is compulsory

When Muslims became a majority, this verse was “revealed”.

*Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.* **(Qur’an 9:29)**

It is the sheer amount of religious text, which is filled with contradictions like these, that necessitates the existence of Islamic scholarly class. Self-taight or laden with degrees from Islamic universities, they are meant to spend their lives working out the will of God and translating it – in plain Arabic – to the less learned community of believers. But even here contradictions occur. It turns out that neither classic nor contemporary Islamic scholars always agree.

Here are some examples of how different scholars approached religious subjugation in Islam.

A prominent Saudi Cleric on Qur’an 9:29

*The kuffaar should be compelled to enter Islam if they are not people from whom the jizyah may be taken, because that will lead to their happiness and salvation in this world and in the Hereafter. Obliging a person to adhere to the truth in which is guidance and happiness is better for him than falsehood.* **[(source)](http ://islamqa.info/en/34770)**

A prominent North American cleric on Qur’an 9:29

*…all the early Meccan verses of peace and forbearance with respect to non-Muslims remain in effect and are not abrogated with respect to all peoples other than the Arab polytheists. And with respect to all the later verses commanding Muslims to fight the polytheists, they abrogate the early verses of peace only with respect to the Arab polytheists.* **[(source)](http ://seekersguidance.org/ans-blog/2010/11/06/jihad-abrogation-in-the-quran-the-verse-of-the-sword/)**

A classic Islamic Scholar on Qur’an 9:29

*But, this verse is abrogated by the verse of “fighting…Therefore, all people of the world should be called to Islam. If anyone of them refuses to do so, or refuses to pay the Jizya they should be fought till they are killed. This is the meaning of compulsion. **(Tafsir of Ibn Kathir, Al-Firdous Ltd., London, 1999: First Edition, Part 3, pp. 37-38)**

The point here is that the “real” Islam is simply impossible to work out from either the religious texts or the opinions of religious scholars. Therefore, each and every believer is free to choose their own ideological dojo, and every version will be as real as the next one.

Western pundits and Islamic clerics naturally gravitate towards the more peaceful interpretations of these texts. However, history once again serves as the ultimate judge in what principle applies. It turns out that the Noble Caliphate used the very verse of Qur’an 9:29 to form what’s known as *Pact of Umar*, a treaty with the inhabitants of Jerusalem, freshly conquered by Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab.

Here is a short excerpt Qur’anic exegesis by Ibn Kathir, which puts the Pact in context.

Ibn Kathir

Ibn Kathir

Pact of Umar in context

*”Allah said, (until they pay the Jizyah), if they do not choose to embrace Islam, (with willing submission), in defeat and subservience, (and feel themselves subdued.), disgraced, humiliated and belittled. Therefore, Muslims are not allowed to honor the people of Dhimmah or elevate them above Muslims, for they are miserable, disgraced and humiliated. Muslim recorded from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said, (Do not initiate the Salam to the Jews and Christians, and if you meet any of them in a road, force them to its narrowest alley.) This is why the Leader of the faithful `Umar bin Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, demanded his well-known conditions be met by the Christians, these conditions that ensured their continued humiliation, degradation and disgrace.”* **[(source)](http ://www.qtafsir.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2566&Itemid=64)**

This gives ample backing to the idea that in reality Islam has many faces – some peaceful and some utterly disgusting and violent. All faces constitute real Islam without exception.

Conclusion

Mehdi Hasan’s article falls apart the minute we engage our brains and go under the skin of Islamic theology and history. It lacks intellectual honesty and is utterly misleading to readers. The reality is that although religious literacy and ceremonial intensity do not cause extremism, Islam – the very real Islam – serves as a perfect fuel for it. The ideology facilitates acquisition of supernatural beliefs and can easily direct believers towards religious violence.

Tonight we are honored that Christopher Logan of Logan’s Warning is returning to the show. Chris is a counter jihadist that is always taking on the “moderate” muslim on Twitter and in person. A lot of the time he ends up being blocked by them on Twitter but he captures the debates and posts them on his site in hopes that they will see them and continue the debate there. Tonight we will talk about a recent #ISpeakOutBecause campaign on Twitter and Facebook from TheMuslim Public Affairs Council that many of us took part in and much more.

This week we might have more time to visit. Calls are more than welcome and encouraged for tonight’s show. We will have a few things to knock around I am sure. After all we still have the same marxists attempting to destroy our country, unrest in Ferguson, immigrants flooding our border, President “Sound Byte”(© by Vito Esposito), etc.

If you know of a subject that we should be talking about or a guest that we should have on get in touch with @GulfDogs or @smokie_tx on twitter and let us know. We will see what we can do. This show is for us all. We are just the ones on the air.

Thanks for your continued support. We do really appreciate you all taking time out of your Sundays to tune in and take part in the chat room.

On the show we will be speaking about the misleading “moderate” Muslim campaign lead by the Muslim Public Affairs Council….Errrr…Muslim Propagandist Affairs Council (MPAC), the Clarion Project’s huge mistake of buying into the “moderate” Muslim line of thinking, and much more!

The show and the call in number can be found by clicking HERE.

As usual, Muslims are more than welcome to call in. Don’t be shy, Mohammad instructed you to lie, so give it your best shot!

 

 

The Huffington Post’s Kashif N. Chaudhry Responds

xKWBt6mh_reasonably_smallKashif Runs From the Rebuttal

In case you missed it, the other night on Twitter the Huffington Post’s Kashif Chaudhry challenged me to write up a rebuttal of his article on Islam and sex slavery. So of course I took up the challenge.

When I was done I sent him the link.

(Click on images to enlarge.)
Kashif rebuttal sent to

As expected he could not even being to formulate a sentence in an effort to refute my points. Just as the Huffington Post’s Craig Considine had done in the past.

But this gets better. Kashif continued to dig his own hole as he foolishly responded to me in a different Twitter thread.

Kashif responds to others

Then when I reminded him of my article and asked him to condemn Islam for allowing lashings (Koran 24:2), he decided to run away again.

Kashif ducks my article

Kashif ducks lashings

He stayed in hiding until tonight when he attempted to discredit me, and told another Muslim “friend” of mine to ignore me.

Kashif responses says to ignore

From their he tucked his tail between his legs and ran off……err…..flew off on his magic carpet!

The Huffington Post’s Kashif N. Chaudhry Exposed! Part I

Logan’s Warning accepts the Huffington Post’s Kashif N. Chaudhry Rebuttal Challengeuntitled (38)

Tonight I posted the following statement on Facebook, which was also posted on my Twitter account through an auto-feed.

#ISpeakOutBecause I just spoke to @ISpeakOut_ on Twitter, and they would not condemn Islam for allowing child marriages, lashings, sex slavery, and Mohammad stating he would drive all Christians and Jews out of the Arabian Peninsula. But they did manage to call me ISIS and block me. lol #Islam #ISIS #NAI (Logan)

Not too long after posting the comment I received a Tweet from the Huffington Post’s Kashif N. Chaudhry.

(Click on images to enlarge.)

Kashif HuPo

As you can see he stated Islam did not allow the vile actions I had mentioned, and linked me to the following article.

Kashif HuPo article

During a brief conversation in which he ducked numerous points on Islam, he challenged me to write a rebuttal.

Kashif rebuttal challenge

So here is where I expose just what kind of “humanitarian” he is.

KC:

The Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram recently kidnapped young girls, allegedly to sell into sexual slavery. Extremist Muslim clerics and extreme critics of Islam have long shared the conviction – amongst some others – that Islam allows keeping slaves, at least in certain circumstances, and permits their rape. This myth is completely unfounded.

I guess it is “unfounded” if you ignore Koranic verse 4:24. In our Twitter talk he is was against me using a tafsir, which he stated was just commentary on the Koran.

Kashif Koran Sunnah

But the fact is that it is a scholarly interpretation and explanation of it. Kashid doesn’t like it because it just buries his argument. But he does not get to dictate what evidence I use. So I will using numerous translations of Koran, the world renowned Tafsir al-Jalalayn, and Sahih Ahadith to prove my points.

Sahih International
And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.

Muhsin Khan
Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (captives and slaves) whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you. All others are lawful, provided you seek (them in marriage) with Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) from your property, desiring chastity, not committing illegal sexual intercourse, so with those of whom you have enjoyed sexual relations, give them their Mahr as prescribed; but if after a Mahr is prescribed, you agree mutually (to give more), there is no sin on you. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise.

Pickthall
And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery. And those of whom ye seek content (by marrying them), give unto them their portions as a duty. And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty (hath been done). Lo! Allah is ever Knower, Wise.

Yusuf Ali
Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

As you can plainly see, right hands possess means captives of war (war booty) taken for sex slavery.

untitled (4)

Further made clear in the Tafsir al-Jalalayn.

Koran verse 4:24 (Altafsir.com)

{وَٱلْمُحْصَنَٰتُ مِنَ ٱلنِّسَآءِ إِلاَّ مَا مَلَكْتَ أَيْمَٰنُكُمْ كِتَٰبَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَأُحِلَّ لَكُمْ مَّا وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَن تَبْتَغُواْ بِأَمْوَٰلِكُمْ مُّحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَٰفِحِينَ فَمَا ٱسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً وَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا تَرَٰضَيْتُمْ بِهِ مِن بَعْدِ ٱلْفَرِيضَةِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً}

And, forbidden to you are, wedded women, those with spouses, that you should marry them before they have left their spouses, be they Muslim free women or not; save what your right hands own, of captured [slave] girls, whom you may have sexual intercourse with, even if they should have spouses among the enemy camp, but only after they have been absolved of the possibility of pregnancy [after the completion of one menstrual cycle]; this is what God has prescribed for you (kitāba is in the accusative because it is the verbal noun). Lawful for you (read passive wa-uhilla, or active wa-ahalla), beyond all that, that is, except what He has forbidden you of women, is that you seek, women, using your wealth, by way of a dowry or a price, in wedlock and not, fornicating, in illicitly. Such wives as you enjoy thereby, and have had sexual intercourse with, give them their wages, the dowries that you have assigned them, as an obligation; you are not at fault in agreeing together, you and they, after the obligation, is waived, decreased or increased. God is ever Knowing, of His creatures, Wise, in what He has ordained for them.

KC:
Slavery was the norm in the Arabia that Prophet Muhammad opened his eyes in. Anyone who could afford to buy a slave, kept one. Unfortunately, these slaves – especially girls – had no dignified status in society. They were bought and sold like property. They were overworked, abused and looked down upon as inferior beings.

Deeply troubled by this social injustice, Prophet Muhammad set out to emancipate slaves. He did not do this with the stroke of a pen. Letting the slaves go free, have to fend for themselves, be homeless and form separate isolated settlements would likely ensure freedom – but not equal rights and status. Hence, Prophet Muhammad embraced the slaves instead, assimilated them into society and made them useful contributors to the growing Muslim community. He uplifted them and ousted their inferiority complex. He instructed the Muslims to free the slaves who could stand on their own feet and forbade slave trade at all costs.He taught that all humans were equal and so it was not proper to address a slave as a “slave.” He said:

Let none of you call out to his slave saying, ‘My slave boy!’ or ‘My slave girl!’ nor let a slave call out to his master saying, ‘My Lord!’ but let the master call out to the slave saying, ‘My young man!’ or ‘My young woman!’ and let the slave call out to the master as ‘My chief!’

As we look at the outrageous comments I emboldened, we see that he offers the readers no proof whatsoever. He thinks we should just blindly take his word.

If Islam forbade slavery why did all those translations above encourage taking captives of war as slaves?

If Mohammad taught that all humans were equal why did he say this?

Sahih Al-Bukhari, Al-Adab al-Mufrad 1103;

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Do not give the People of the Book the greeting first. Force them to the narrowest part of the road.”

Or this?

Sahih Muslim Hadith Book 019, Number 4366:

It has been narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.

Wait…at the beginning of all this Kashif implied Mohammad never said that. Could Kashif be trying to pull the wool over our eyes!?

Back to KC:

Islam offered many ways for former slaves to be integrated into society. One such means was marriage. No Arab noble would ever have conceived of marrying a slave, but Prophet Muhammad broke this taboo with his own example. He inspired a brand new way of thinking in Arab society. He taught:

He who has a slave-girl, educates and treats her nicely and then manumits and marries her will get a double reward.

Talk about coercion. Marry me and give your body to the slave owner whenever he demands it….

Koran verse 2:223:

Sahih International
Your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you, so come to your place of cultivation however you wish and put forth [righteousness] for yourselves. And fear Allah and know that you will meet Him. And give good tidings to the believers.

Muhsin Khan
Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations with your wives in any manner as long as it is in the vagina and not in the anus), when or how you will, and send (good deeds, or ask Allah to bestow upon you pious offspring) before you for your ownselves. And fear Allah, and know that you are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give good tidings to the believers (O Muhammad SAW).

Pickthall
Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will, and send (good deeds) before you for your souls, and fear Allah, and know that ye will (one day) meet Him. Give glad tidings to believers, (O Muhammad).

Yusuf Ali
Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will; but do some good act for your souls beforehand; and fear Allah. And know that ye are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these) good tidings to those who believe.

Or stay a slave. Such choices… Islam the gift that keeps on giving.

At this point we see that Kashif “the humanitarian” Chaudhry is OK with coercion, what is basically a forced marriage, and with there being no such thing as marital rape under Islam. What a sport!

Back to KC:

While Prophet Muhammad was starting this social revolution in Arabia, he found himself in a very hostile environment. Muslims were persecuted for over a decade in Mecca. They were boycotted, thrown out of the city and forced to migrate to Medina. Prophet Muhammad’s enemies were persistent and pursued him there as well. Just two years after his emigration, a thousand-man strong army marched out of Mecca with the intent to finish the Muslims forever. It was at this time that fighting was first permitted in self-defense (2:190). The Muslims, only 300 in number, defended themselves and won this battle decisively at Badr. Muslims had to counter many more offensives. Thus, Prophet Muhammad laid down clear rules and regulations for warfare. No women, children, elderly, monks, worship places and trees, for example, were to be hurt during fighting.

Once again Kashif has numerous claims. But why didn’t he substantiate them?

Because the truth is that Mohammad said it was OK to kill women and children in night raids.

Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4321:

It is reported on the authority of Sa’b b. Jaththama that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him), when asked about the women and children of the polytheists being killed during the night raid, said: They are from them.

What he fails to mention about the worship places is that Muslims can just seize them as war booty.

Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4346:

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: If you come to a township (which has surrendered without a formal war) and stay therein, you have a share (that will be in the form of an award) in (the properties obtained from) it. If a township disobeys Allah and His Messenger (and actually fights against the Muslims) one-fifth of the booty seized therefrom is for Allah and His Apostle and the rest is for you.

Why does Kashif continually make statements that are so easily refuted? Does he prey on naïve and trusting non-Muslims?

Koran 59:5:

Sahih International
Whatever you have cut down of [their] palm trees or left standing on their trunks – it was by permission of Allah and so He would disgrace the defiantly disobedient.

Muhsin Khan
What you (O Muslims) cut down of the palm-trees (of the enemy), or you left them standing on their stems, it was by Leave of Allah, and in order that He might disgrace the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).

Pickthall
Whatsoever palm-trees ye cut down or left standing on their roots, it was by Allah’s leave, in order that He might confound the evil-livers.

Yusuf Ali
Whether ye cut down (O ye Muslim!) The tender palm-trees, or ye left them standing on their roots, it was by leave of Allah, and in order that He might cover with shame the rebellious transgresses.

To further prove my point we will take a look at what Sahih Muslim has to say on the matter.

Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4324:

It is narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered the date-palms of Banu Nadir to be burnt and cut. These palms were at Buwaira. Qutaibah and Ibn Rumh in their versions of the tradition have added: So Allah, the Glorious and Exalted, revealed the verse:” Whatever trees you have cut down or left standing on their trunks, it was with the permission of Allah so that He may disgrace the evil-doers” (lix. 5).

Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4325:

It is narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) caused the date-palms of Banu Nadir to be cut down and burnt. It is in this connection that Hassan (the poet) said:

It was easy for the nobles of Quraish to barn Buwaira whose sparks were flying in all directions.

in the same connection was revealed the Qur’anic verse:” Whatever trees you have cut down or left standing on their trunks.”

Obama: ‘No Just God Would Stand For What’ ISIS Did To James Foley

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass. (WNEW/AP) — President Barack Obama said Wednesday that the entire world is “appalled” by the brutal death of American journalist James Foley, who was shown in a video released by the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq being beheaded.

“No faith teaches people to massacre innocents,” Obama said in his statement. “No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day.”

{فَإِذَا لَقِيتُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فَضَرْبَ ٱلرِّقَابِ حَتَّىٰ إِذَآ أَثْخَنتُمُوهُمْ فَشُدُّواْ ٱلْوَثَاقَ فَإِمَّا مَنًّا بَعْدُ وَإِمَّا فِدَآءً حَتَّىٰ تَضَعَ ٱلْحَرْبُ أَوْزَارَهَا ذَلِكَ وَلَوْ يَشَآءُ اللَّهُ لاَنْتَصَرَ مِنْهُمْ وَلَـٰكِن لِّيَبْلُوَاْ بَعْضَكُمْ بِبَعْضٍ وَٱلَّذِينَ قُتِلُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ فَلَن يُضِلَّ أَعْمَالَهُمْ}

So when you encounter [in battle] those who disbelieve, then [attack them with] a striking of the necks (fa-darba’l-riqābi is a verbal noun in place of the [full] verbal construction, that is to say, fa’dribū riqābahum, ‘then strike their necks’), in other words, slay them — reference is made to the ‘striking of the necks’ because the predominant cause of being slayed is to be struck in the neck. Then, when you have made thoroughly decimated them, bind, spare them, take them captive and bind firmly, the bonds (al-wathāq is what is used to bind [yūthaqu] a captive). Thereafter either [set them free] by grace (mannan is a verbal noun in place of the [full] verbal construction), that is to say, either show them grace by setting them free unconditionally; or by ransom, ransoming them with payment or with Muslim captives, until the war, that is to say, its participants, lay down its burdens, its heavy loads of weaponry and other things, so that either the disbelievers surrender or enter into a treaty. This [last clause] constitutes the ‘purpose’ of [enjoining the Muslims to] slaying and taking captive. So [shall it be] (dhālika is the predicate of an implied subject, [such as] al-amr, ‘the ordinance’, in other words, ‘the ordinance [of God] regarding them is as mentioned’). And had God willed, He could have [Himself] taken vengeance on them, without any fighting, but, He has commanded you to [do] it, that He may test some of you by means of others, from among them, by way of battle, so that the slain among you will end up in Paradise, while those [slain] among them [will end up] in the Fire. And those who are slain (qutilū: a variant reading has qātalū, ‘those who fight’) — this verse was revealed on the day of [the battle of] Uhud, after the dead and the wounded had become numerous among the Muslims — in the way of God, He will not let their works go to waste, He will [not] render [them] void.

Did I happen to mention the name of that Sura (chapter)?
