NAI Exclusive! Muslim Scholars’ “Anti-ISIS” Letter Undone ~ Part l

untitled (58)Back in 2010 the media was buzzing with the news of Islamic atrocities being committed, and Muslim propagandists were scrambling for an answer in an effort to combat the negative media attention. That “answer” came from Pakistani-born scholar Dr. Tahir ul-Qadri. The doctor issued his famous “Islam is Peace” fatwa and the world just ate it up, as the media did not even make an attempt to refute it. So I did their job for them. Now because the media is abuzz over the Muslim scholars’ statement “against” ISIS, I am forced to do it again. Our first warning sign should have been who released the letter in Washington. Muslim Scholars Release Open Letter To Islamic State Meticulously Blasting Its Ideology WASHINGTON (RNS) More than 120 Muslim scholars from around the world joined an open letter to the “fighters and followers” of the Islamic State, denouncing them as un-Islamic by using the most Islamic of terms. SNIP: RNS-MUSLIM-SCHOLARS SNIP:

Even translated into English, the letter will still sound alien to most Americans, said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, who released it in Washington with 10 other American Muslim religious and civil rights leaders. “The letter is written in Arabic. It is using heavy classical religious texts and classical religious scholars that ISIS has used to mobilize young people to join its forces,” said Awad, using one of the acronyms for the group. “This letter is not meant for a liberal audience.”

Even mainstream Muslims, he said, may find it difficult to understand. Awad said its aim is to offer a comprehensive Islamic refutation, “point-by-point,” to the philosophy of the Islamic State and the violence it has perpetrated. The letter’s authors include well-known religious and scholarly figures in the Muslim world, including Sheikh Shawqi Allam, the grand mufti of Egypt, and Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, the mufti of Jerusalem and All Palestine.

For those new to the subject here is the main thing we need to know about the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). untitled (47) SNIP:

“Please stop calling them the ‘Islamic State,’ because they are not a state and they are not a religion,” said Ahmed Bedier, a Muslim and the president of United Voices of America, a nonprofit that encourages minority groups to engage in civic life. President Obama has made a similar point, referring to the Islamic State by one of its acronyms — “the group known as ISIL” — in his speech to the United Nations earlier Wednesday. In that speech, Obama also disconnected the group from Islam. Enumerating its atrocities — the mass rape of women, the gunning down of children, the starvation of religious minorities — Obama concluded: “No God condones this terror.”

Link to Article Unfortunately the Huffington Post is employing another “journalist” who has little to no knowledge on Islam. Because that statement by Obama was easily refuted. This time it is a Lauren Markoe, in the past I had exposed HuPo writer Craig Considine’s whitewashing of Mohammad. Now onto the letter:

1. It is forbidden in Islam to issue fatwas without all the necessary learning requirements. Even then fatwas must follow Islamic legal theory as defined in the Classical texts. It is also forbidden to cite a portion of a verse from the Qur’an—or part of a verse—to derive a ruling without looking at everything that the Qur’an and Hadith teach related to that matter. In other words, there are strict subjective and objective prerequisites for fatwas, and one cannot ‘cherry-pick’ Qur’anic verses for legal arguments without considering the entire Qur’an and Hadith. 2. It is forbidden in Islam to issue legal rulings about anything without mastery of the Arabic language. 3. It is forbidden in Islam to oversimplify Shari’ah matters and ignore established Islamic sciences. 4. It is permissible in Islam [for scholars] to differ on any matter, except those fundamentals of religion that all Muslims must know. 5. It is forbidden in Islam to ignore the reality of contemporary times when deriving legal rulings.

The reality is that the Koran is for all times and verse 33:21 states the actions of Mohammad on the battlefield are to be followed for all times. Koran 33:21: (Www. Altafsir.com)

{ لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيراً } Verily there is for you a good example (read iswa or uswa) in the Messenger of God, to emulate in combat and in holding one’s ground [therein], for whoever (li-man substitutes for lakum, ‘for you’) hopes for [the encounter with] God, fears Him, and the Last Day, and remembers God often, in contrast to those who do not.

Back to the letter.

6. It is forbidden in Islam to kill the innocent.

As you can see they do not define what “innocent” is, and according to Koran verse 9:29 if non-Muslims do not convert, pay jizya and accept Islamic rule, Muslims can wage war on them. Koran 9:29:

{ قَاتِلُواْ ٱلَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَلاَ بِٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلآخِرِ وَلاَ يُحَرِّمُونَ مَا حَرَّمَ ٱللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَلاَ يَدِينُونَ دِينَ ٱلْحَقِّ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلْكِتَابَ حَتَّىٰ يُعْطُواْ ٱلْجِزْيَةَ عَن يَدٍ وَهُمْ صَاغِرُونَ } Fight those who do not believe in God, nor in the Last Day, for, otherwise, they would have believed in the Prophet (s), and who do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden, such as wine, nor do they practise the religion of truth, the firm one, the one that abrogated other religions, namely, the religion of Islam — from among of those who (min, ‘from’, explains [the previous] alladhīna, ‘those who’) have been given the Scripture, namely, the Jews and the Christians, until they pay the jizya tribute, the annual tax imposed them, readily (‘an yadin is a circumstantial qualifier, meaning, ‘compliantly’, or ‘by their own hands’, not delegating it [to others to pay]), being subdued, [being made] submissive and compliant to the authority of Islam.

In the following verse we see just how “innocent” is it to be a non-believer of Islam. Koran 4:89:

{ وَدُّواْ لَوْ تَكْفُرُونَ كَمَا كَفَرُواْ فَتَكُونُونَ سَوَآءً فَلاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِنْهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءَ حَتَّىٰ يُهَاجِرُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْاْ فَخُذُوهُمْ وَٱقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَلاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِنْهُمْ وَلِيّاً وَلاَ نَصِيراً } They long, they wish, that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, so then you, and they, would be equal, in unbelief; therefore do not take friends from among them, associating with them, even if they should [outwardly] manifest belief, until they emigrate in the way of God, a proper emigration that would confirm their belief; then, if they turn away, and remain upon their ways, take them, as captives, and slay them wherever you find them; and do not take any of them as a patron, to associate with, or as a helper, to assist you against your enemy.

We move on….

7. It is forbidden in Islam to kill emissaries, ambassadors, and diplomats; hence it is forbidden to kill journalists and aid workers.

According to the following hadith, no one is safe from the wrath of Allah and Mohammad. Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”

Back to the Muslim misinformation machine:

8. Jihad in Islam is defensive war. It is not permissible without the right cause, the right purpose and without the right rules of conduct.

The verse I posted just above showed that jihad is more than a defensive war. There is also an offensive jihad, as proven in the Reliance of the Traveller. A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law. Which has the stamp of approval of Abd al-Wakil Durubi, Imam of the Mosque of Darwish Pasha Damascus, Syria, Nuh’ Ali Salman, Mufti of the Jordanian Armed Forces, International Institute of Islamic Thought (Having “American” council members), and Egypt’s world renowned Al Azhar University. Page 599, (Jihad means to wage war against non-Muslims and it etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion.

9. It is forbidden in Islam to declare people non-Muslim unless he (or she) openly declares disbelief.

So Mohammad was going to interview them all before he drove them all out? securedownload

Update: Part 2 has been canceled for now, because no one could even formulate a sentence in an effort to refute Part 1.
