Islam 101: Koran Verse 5:32~ A License to Kill

I am sure that many of us have heard Muslims make the following statement.

“To kill one innocent man or woman is to kill all of humanity; to save one human is to save all of humanity.”

When they say this they are being very deceptive. They are leaving out the most important part of the verse, which is “unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land” Here it is in its entirety.

YUSUFALI: On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land– it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

Obviously “mischief in the land” is a very open statement, and “mischief” can be defined as almost anything.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary-mischief

3 a : action that annoys or irritates

As I said, this verse is a license to kill which is proven in this video. (Video from 2009)

Here are the possible punishments for “spreading mischief”.

YUSUFALI: The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

For the sake of our families future generations, we need to fight Sharia with all we have, otherwise they will suffer.

    Brother Chris,

    A friend Ibn Iblis wrote, “fasad fil-ardh” means to commit mischief or corruption in the land. The term appears most notably in Qur’an 5.32, which says, “Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) fasad fil-ardh (to spread mischief in the land) – it would be as if he killed all mankind…” Few people bother to ask what it means to “spread mischief in the land”, but it must be a heinous sin, as the prescribed punishment, described in the following verse, is “that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land.”

    Ibn Kathir explains the meaning of mischief:
    In his Tafsir, As-Suddi said that Ibn `Abbas and Ibn Mas`ud commented,

    (And when it is said to them: “Do not make mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.”)

    They are the hypocrites. As for,

    (“Do not make mischief on the earth”),

    that is disbelief and acts of disobedience.” Abu Ja`far said that Ar-Rabi` bin Anas said that Abu Al-`Aliyah said that Allah’s statement,

    (And when it is said to them: “Do not make mischief on the earth”),

    means, “Do not commit acts of disobedience on the earth.

    Their mischief is disobeying Allah, because whoever disobeys Allah on the earth, or commands that Allah be disobeyed, he has committed mischief on the earth. Peace on both the earth and in the heavens is ensured (and earned) through obedience (to Allah).”

    Needless to say, Ibn Iblis is a non-believer, that is why he calls him by the name.

      Disobeying Allah?
      How about Bible study?
      How about Mass?
      How about the Daily Office?
      How about Latin translation?
      I suppose these are “spreading mischief”?

      If more people spent time worshiping and less time claiming powers they should not have, perhaps the world might be a bit safer place.

    I might add, my brother, that, with the help of your site and the sites such as Jihad Watch, Frontpage Magazine, etc., go forth and make mischief and spread disbelief. Fight the counter-jihad. Talk to anyone who will listen. Brother, you have writen your representatives and other leadrs. And, you have done so from a position of knowledgable authority. We must all study Islam. And, we must know those who want to oppress us.

    More from Ibn Iblis, Bro….

    Spread disbelief, hinder others from the path of Allah, and make life miserable for those trying to portray Islam in a benign light while conspiring to destroy your cultural heritage and replace it with a 7th-century warrior’s religious code.

    Kafr in Arabic means “that which covers the truth”; any act of disbelief, heresy, or blasphemy. Those who are not Muslims and commit acts of disbelief have many names, such as kafir (plural kafirûn) or mushrik (plural Mushrikûn).

    Al-fitnah in Arabic means “trial”, “testing” or “calamity”. It is often translated to mean “civil strife”, “war”, or “riots”. Some Qur’anic interpretations of fitnah include “tumult or oppression” (Yusuf Ali) and “persecution” (Shakir; Pickthal).

    Fitnah appears several times in the Qur’an, and it’s definition in an Islamic context is given by Qur’an 2.217: “to prevent mankind from following the Way of Allâh, to disbelieve in Him.” Therefore fitnah is also often translated to mean “disbelief” or “shirk”. Ibn Kathir comments on Qur’an 2.191:

    Shirk is worse than Killing – Since Jihad involves killing and shedding the blood of men, Allah indicated that these men are committing disbelief in Allah, associating with Him (in the worship) and hindering from His path, and this is a much greater evil and more disastrous than killing. Abu Malik commented about what Allah said:

    (And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing.)

    Meaning what you (disbelievers) are committing is much worse than killing.” Abu Al-`Aliyah, Mujahid, Sa`id bin Jubayr, `Ikrimah, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak and Ar-Rabi` bin Anas said that what Allah said:

    (And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing.)

    “Shirk (polytheism) is worse than killing.”

    Confusion arises when one ponders why simple disbelief and persecution are given as definitions for the same word. In an Islamic context, if you are open and active in your disbelief, you “prevent mankind from following the Way of Allah,” and lead them to a path of disbelief which leads to hell. This is why, according to Qur’an 2.217, “fitnah is worse than killing.”

    Just to clarify – this “quote from the Qu’ran” is actually stolen (and perverted) from the Talmud and the Sages of the Talmud. They have taken something deep and of wonder, and turned it to their own insidious purposes.

      🙂 It is your story you can say it any way you want. Mo said that the people of the book perverted that word of God and that was why he channeled the word through the Archangel Gabriel. (of course i am paraphrasing..)

    Here then are the concepts –
    Christianity – God (Jehovah) 2,000 years ago made a one time sacrifice to pay for our sins, Jesus said He was the Son of God and the only way to God. That message has stayed the same for 2,000 years.

    Islam claims that many messages were sent many times to ‘prophets’ only to have the message quickly corrupted until Muhammad.
    Wouldn’t a God that is involved and cares and strong be able to send an incorruptible message, Just one time?

    Jesus never sinned.
    Muhammad said that God had made it ok for him to do wrong things and not be held accountable.

    Which person best reflects the ideology you would want your daughters to grow up under?

    In Muslim countries, the Muslims are treating the non-Muslims unfairly. So don’t blame the non-Muslims in America for their disapproval of Ground Zero mosque.

    No other religions are allowed to be built in Muslim countries. So why the fuss if non-Muslim America banns the Ground Zero mosque?

    The Muslims are hypocrites. If the Muslims persist in building the mosque at Ground Zero, they should go back to their own countries and build their as many mosque as they want there.

    Shame on the Muslims. There is no freedom in Muslim countries for non-Muslims, but when they are in non-Muslim countries, they want all the freedom in non-Muslim countries.

    Muslims are the no:1 mother fuckers in the world!!!! The mother fucking Muslims should go to hell!

      When I hear about the Ground Zero mosque/community center, all I can think about are the Coptic Christians in Egypt.
      Where is the cultural space for them, Muslim Brotherhood?

    Mamhoud, El Presidente, this is what I have found out of Islamism: Islamism is the only Crime Syndicate that masquerades as a religion. Other Crime Syndicates are not hypocritical when they jockey into position to commit crimes. They advertise their crimes of murder, lying and cheating, and let’s us know that they are practicing criminal activity.

    Unlike other Crime Syndicates, Islamism lies and tells us that it’s the religion of peace while it jockeys into position to advance its Criminal Activity: that is, stoning women to death; depraved Muslim sex perverts legally raping underage little girls after a forced “marriage;” hanging and stoning homosexuals until dead; murdering, very much like the Mafia, traitors who no longer wish to participate in criminal activity; honor killings, i.e., a fatwa or a contract on a person for committing minor offenses such as “becoming too Westernized;” flogging underage little girls who are trying to escape the clutches of uncontrolled Muslim male sex perverts who wish to force the underage little girls into “marriage” and subsequent legal rape by said Muslim perverts; flogging women for failing to wear Muslim rags; hanging people who tell the truth about sex pervert, pedophile, child molester, wife beater, murderer, polygamist, whoremonger, slave owner Muhammad.

    So long for now, Mamhoud Nut Job of Iran.

      Just a few months ago they banned western hair-dos. It’s no longer allowed for men to wear spiked hair or have a pony tail as examples.

        More recently they have banned any advertising for pet shops or pet related goods or items because westerners keep dogs! An Iranian guy at another site said Iranians never had dogs before because in islam they are considered unclean but lots of Iranaians have dogs now as a form of protest against Ahmadinnerjacket’s regime.

    Congratulations. You took a verse of the Quran out of context. There’s only about ten of these kinda verses in the Bible.

      August 30, 2010 at 4:27 pm

      Prove I took it out of context. The Bible is not the issue here, as it is made up of stories of those times. While the Koran states that the actions of Mohammad are to be followed for all times.

      BTW, the video, and comments by Bosun’ backup what I have stated.
