Islam: The Basics

The most important fact about Islam is that it is a political ideology. The religion is of secondary importance. The religion is based upon the Five Pillars. The politics are based upon jihad, the sixth pillar. Islam divides all of the world into believers and kafirs (unbelievers). When you understand the idea of a 'kafir,' you will understand all of political Islam.

Almost everyone thinks of Islam as a religion, but as you're going to discover, religion is the least of Islam. Islam is an entire civilization. It's a culture, a legal system, a thought system, and an ethical system. Islam is all-encompassing.

First, let's explain some of the basics.

Everything in Islam depends upon Mohammed. Mohammed begins Islam and Mohammed ends Islam. Islamic doctrine is found in three texts: the Koran, the Sira (the life of Mohammed), and the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed).

Scientific analysis has made these documents very readable, so we can easily understand Islamic civilization.

The religion of Islam is simple. It's based upon the five pillars. The first of these pillars is: there is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet. If you say that in Arabic in front of other Muslims, you have become a Muslim. It is the most central aspect of Islam, acknowledging the Koran and the Sunna (Mohammed's perfect example).

The next pillar is charity. The 'zakat' is a charity tax, but charity inside of Islam is quite different from what most of us think as charity. First of all, Muslim charity goes to Muslims; it does not go to kafirs (unbelievers).

There's another difference in Islamic charity. Money given to an Islamic charity can support Jihad. It can support the creation of Jihad, and it is also specifically for helping those whose family members have died in Jihad. So, Islamic charity is a little different from ours.

Another of the five pillars is prayer. Of course, Muslims are famous for their attitude towards prayer, which is done five times a day, and even in public places. After prayer, we have the 'Haj.' And that is the pilgrimage trip to Mecca. This is supposed to be done once in every Muslim's life, if he can afford it.

Another religious obligation is to fast every year in the month of Ramadan. Now, fasting for a Muslim means that you don't eat or drink when the sun is up, and you do not eat until the sun goes down. At night, you can eat and drink as much as you wish.

Those are the religious five pillars. Then there is a sixth pillar. The sixth pillar is jihad. The reason jihad is called a pillar of Islam is that, just like the other five, it is incumbent upon all Muslims, without exception. All Muslims are supposed to participate in Jihad. We will have an entire lesson on jihad later, but just because a Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad does not mean that he's actually involved in the jihad of the sword. Jihad can be done with the sword, with the mouth, with a pen and with money...but more about that later.

Jihad is both religious and political. Islam is primarily a political doctrine, not a religious doctrine. For instance, the Koran is more concerned with the unbeliever---the kafir---than it is the believer. It spends 61% of its time discussing the kafir; only 39% of the Koran is about Islam and the Muslim. The Koran spends so much time talking about the kafir that we should address that issue now.

The word 'kafir' is usually translated as 'unbeliever,' but that is not correct, since the word 'unbeliever' is a purely neutral word. For instance, you might be an unbeliever in the Big Bang Theory of the creation of the universe. That makes you an unbeliever about the Big Bang. That is simply a logical statement, it just says 'you don't believe.' If you don't believe the theory of the Big Bang, that does not mean that I can discriminate against you or hurt you. It's just an idea you don't agree with.

But not so in the Koran, with a kafir. The Koran goes into enormous detail about the unbeliever---the kafir. Allah despises the kafir. Allah plots against the kafir. The Koran says that the kafir can be crucified, tortured, kidnapped, abused, raped, stolen from, and punished. There are many, many references to the kafir in the Koran. Remember, 61% of it is devoted to the kafir.

Now let's deal with another fundamental of Islam. A Muslim is forbidden to enter into any religious aspect of life with a kafir. So all of this talk about the kafir is not religious. It is political. That is, Islam treats the kafir as being outside of Islam and has an extensive doctrine with how to deal with kafirs.

As an example of the political nature of being a kafir, there are many, many references in the Koran to Hell, and the kafir is in Hell; but the reason a kafir is in Hell is not because he did anything that was morally wrong, such as theft or murder, but simply because the kafir did not believe that Mohammed was the prophet of Allah. So Islamic Hell is a political prison for intellectual dissenters.

The other basic thing about Islam is that it does not have the Golden Rule. Indeed Islam denies the truth of the Golden Rule. In Islam there is no such thing as humanity. Instead, the world is always seen as being divided into the kafir and the believer. Humanity is not seen as one body.

Once you have that fundamental division, you no longer have the Golden Rule, because the Golden Rule is 'to treat others as you would be treated,' and that means all others. Islam does not work like that. Islam, instead, is based upon a different principle than the Golden Rule, and this is the essence of Islam. Islam is based upon submission and duality. Submission, because the word 'Islam' means 'submission,' and that all others must submit to Islam. Now, all others having to submit to Islam, is a political statement. The political aspect of submission is that the kafir must submit to the Muslim and Islam. If Islam demands the political submission of kafirs, then it cannot have the Golden Rule.

The other principle that Islam is based upon is duality. We will see this in great detail when we study the Koran, but we've already seen duality. There was the Mohammed of Mecca, and the Mohammed of Medina, and those two men are not the same. Duality and submission is what Islamic civilization is based upon.

Islam is the most successful political system on the face of the earth. For 1400 years Islam has slowly expanded. In only two cases in the whole history of Islam has it ever been driven back. Both of those occurred in Europe. One in Spain, and the other in Eastern Europe. Other than those two times, Islam keeps expanding. It expands on a daily basis. Indeed, as we will discover later, the power of political Islam increases every day in Europe and the United States.

We like to think that liberal democracy is the most powerful force on the face of the earth, but liberal democracy is only 200 years old, and is very difficult to implement, whereas political Islam is 1400 years old, and is quite easy to implement. And, once it is in place, it always stays in place. Once a nation becomes Islamic, the only thing that can change it, is force from the outside, as occurred in Spain, where the Moors were driven out of Spain. Otherwise, there has never been a case of a revolution inside of an Islamic country. By 'revolution' here, we mean one that eliminated Islam as the driving political force, not a change of rulers.

Political Islam is very effective. There have been over 270 million people killed by jihad over the last 1400 years. Islam has also been very successful in the business of slavery. For 1400 years, it has enslaved the kafir, and we will have an entire lesson on how Islam has enslaved the European, the African and the Asian. Political Islam is a phenomenally successful political ideology.

Now these lessons are going to be about Islam, not Muslims. That is, we're not going to be describing Muslims, but the doctrine of Islam, and what we're going to be describing is the doctrine of political Islam. The religion of Islam is of a concern only to one type of person. The religion of Islam is for those who wish to go to Islamic paradise, and those who wish to avoid Islamic Hell. Since this series is not directed towards Islamic Heaven or Hell, we will not discuss the religion, nor will we be discussing Muslims as a people. This is important, because it will keep this entire series on an intellectual basis.

We need to talk a little bit about 'kafir' culture or 'kafir' civilization. Twenty percent of the world is Islamic. The other 80% is made up of kafirs. We need to understand that kafir culture includes the Christian, the Jew, the Hindu, atheists and the Buddhist. It includes Chinese. It includes Australians. It includes Africans. It includes the animist---that is, those who believe that the world is a spirit affair. So, kafirs are everybody but Muslims. Now, here's what's important about that: kafirs need to understand that, so far as Islam is concerned, there is not the slightest bit of difference how a kafir is treated, whether he's an atheist, a Christian, a Jew, or a Hindu. It doesn't make any difference. For instance, Christians make a great deal of distinctions amongst themselves, and for that matter, so do Buddhists; but, from the outside, that is, from the viewpoint of Islam, all kafirs are the same. They deny Mohammed. They deny the Sunna of Mohammed; that is, the way of Mohammed; and all kafirs deny the truth of the Koran. Kafirs are all those who don't believe that Mohammed is the Prophet of Allah.

An infidel can only be a Jew or a Christian; therefore the term 'infidel' is a religious term. Another term used by Islam is 'polytheist'---many gods. This, too, is a religious term. 'Atheist' is a religious term. And one last term that Islam uses for the kafir is 'Peoples of the Book'---and this refers again to Christians and Jews. Those terms---pagan, infidel, polytheist, atheist and People of the Book---are religious words. And remember, this lesson series is not at all about the religion. That's the reason 'kafir' is the word to use, because an infidel is a kafir. A polytheist is a kafir; a pagan is a kafir; an atheist is a kafir; and the People of the Book are kafirs, as well. So, we will use the term 'kafir.'

We will be studying the deaths of 270 million kafirs over 1400 years in jihad. That's 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus, 10 million Buddhists and 120 million Africans of varying religions. But now we have to recognize one more thing about the kafir, and that is this: almost all kafirs do not want to know about Islam. We will study in this series why kafirs never refer to the injury of Islam, and why kafir Christians don't know how Turkey and Egypt went from being Christian to Islamic. Why do Buddhists never talk about the fact that Islam has killed 10 million Buddhists? You can find some Hindus who are willing to discuss the destruction of 80 million Hindus, but they're rare. So, one of the things that we will study in this series is, why kafirs fear and dread Islam so much that kafirs refuse to study their own history. We will study why European kafirs never refer to the fact that a million Europeans were taken into slavery. Kafirs and Islam is what this entire series is about. It's all about the politics of Islam.

We will use the term 'ignorance' or 'to be ignorant' in these talks. For some people, the term 'ignorance' is a put-down or a slur, but the term ignorance means not knowing---to be empty of knowledge. It's like 'the glass is empty.' 'Empty' is not negative; it just means that you need knowledge.

Since Islam is a complete civilization, that is to say, since Islam contains everything that it needs within itself, it has no need of the kafir civilization. It annihilates the kafir's civilization. In every case, once Islam rises to political power in a country, the original civilization is annihilated. When you go to Egypt today, you do not see any sign of the original Coptic or Christian civilization that was in Egypt. It is gone. Everything about it has disappeared. Even the names that people use, the names for cities, all change. Islam is a complete civilization and therefore, when a country becomes fully Islamicized, there is no trace whatsoever of the original civilization, and that is one of the marks of Islamic politics.

If we are to save kafir civilization, kafirs must learn about their losses to Islam and why they happened.

The basics of Islam are the Five Pillars, jihad, submission, duality and kafir. Once you understand those words, you can understand how political Islam has annihilated civilizations for 1400 years.

Jeff,

This is really interesting. I look forward to the next lesson.

Jeff said...

Thanks, Larry! Much appreciated.

As a side note, I began listening to these as audio lessons. I e-mailed the original link to the audio lessons to a number of politicians in Ohio and Florida in reference to the Rifqa Bary case, and suddenly, the next day or so, the audio lessons were no longer available! I don't know whether some person or group was offended and hacked into the site or what. But the website then made the text available, so I wanted to post the text here, before it got deleted as well, just so there would at least be another copy of it. That is the main reason I posted their lessons here. Plus, because it is in such a simplistic, basic, non-scholarly form, the lessons provide an interesting and easy-to-read introductory "primer" to the political side of Islam, and they present it in a way that is not only unique (you will never hear this side of it in textbooks or the media; nor will you hear it from devoted Muslims), but it presents the concepts in a way that is easy to understand. That's what I like about it, because trying to understand such a foreign way of thinking can be confusing, so these simplified lessons are a good, basic way to introduce it, before trying to tackle a more serious study of Islam.

thekingpin68,

In contrast, the Bible does not give permission to Christians to torture, kidnap, abuse, rape, steal from, or punish non-Christians. Rather, it instructs us to love our neighbor.

The foremost is, 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' "The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:28-31)

You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. (Matthew 5:43)

Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:8-10)

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (John 13:34-35)

One day an expert on Moses' laws came to test Jesus' orthodoxy by asking him this question: "Teacher, what does a man need to do to live forever in heaven?" Jesus replied, "What does Moses' law say about it?" "It says," he replied, "that you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind. And you must love your neighbor just as much as you love yourself." "Right!" Jesus told him. "Do this and you shall live!" The man wanted to justify (his lack of love for some kinds of people), so he asked, "Which neighbors?" Jesus replied with an illustration: "A Jew going on a trip from Jerusalem to Jericho was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes and money, and beat him up and left him lying half dead beside the road. "By chance a Jewish priest came along; and when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. A Jewish Temple-assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but then went on. "But a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw him, he felt deep pity. Kneeling beside him the Samaritan soothed his wounds with medicine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his donkey and walked along beside him till they came to an inn, where he nursed him through the night. The next day he handed the innkeeper two twenty-dollar bills and told him to take care of the man. 'If his bill runs higher than that,' he said, 'I'll pay the difference the next time I am here.' "Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the bandits' victim?" The man replied, "The one who showed him some pity." Then Jesus said, "Yes, now go and do the same." (Luke 10:25-37)

For if you forgive men for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. "But if you do not forgive men, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions. (Matthew 6:14-15)

(cont.)

But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. "And all the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. "Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 'For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.' "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? 'And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 'And when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' "And the King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.' "Then they themselves also will answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?' "Then He will answer them, saying, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' "And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." (Matthew 25:31-46)

THE GOLDEN RULE:
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

This is Anjem Chaudhry, a Pakistani who was born and raised in the UK. In this BBC interview, Choudary was asked why he would not say with Omar Bakri Mohammed, "I condemn the killing of innocent people." Choudary replied, "at the end of the day, when we say "innocent people" we mean 'Muslims.' As far as non-Muslims are concerned, they have not accepted Islam. As far as we are concerned, that is a crime against God."

Pakistani says it's OK to kill non-Muslims

Jeff said...

With regard to non-Muslims, the Muslim should disavow himself of them, and he should not feel any love in his heart towards them: [Qur'an 60:1 & Qur'an 60:4]

But this does not mean that a Muslim cannot interact with them in a nice manner that will encourage them to enter Islam, so long as that is within the guidelines of sharee’ah, as Allaah says: [Qur'an 60:8]

The Muslim should strive hard to call non-Muslims to Islam through all possible permissible means, in the hope that they may benefit from that and respond, as Allaah says: [Qur'an 16:125 & Qur'an 41:33]

It is permissible to accept a gift from a non-Muslim because he is a relative or neighbour, or for the purpose of softening his heart and calling him to Islam, but it is haraam if it is done as an act of friendship or love, because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Awliyaa’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Awliyaa’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Awliyaa’), then surely, he is one of them. Verily, Allaah guides not those people who are the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust)” [al-Maa’idah 5:51]

O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people; they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made the communications clear to you, if you will understand. [Qur'an 3:118]

O ye who believe! Take not for friends unbelievers rather than believers: Do ye wish to offer Allah an open proof against yourselves? [Qur'an 4:144]

O Ye who believe! Choose not for guardians such of those who received the Scripture before you, and of the disbelievers, as make a jest and sport of your religion. But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers. [Qur'an 5:57]

O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers. [Qur'an 9:23]

You shall not find a people who believe in Allah and the latter day befriending those who act in opposition to Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their (own) fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kinsfolk; these are they into whose hearts He has impressed faith, and whom He has strengthened with an inspiration from Him: and He will cause them to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding therein; Allah is well-pleased with them and they are well-pleased with Him these are Allah's party: now surely the party of Allah are the successful ones. [Qur'an 58:22]
(Note that Quran 58:22 even divides families.)

O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers. [Qur'an 9:23]
(Forsake your Kaffir Family Members)

There is for you an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: "We are clear of you and of whatever ye worship besides Allah: we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever,- unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone": But not when Abraham said to his father: "I will pray for forgiveness for thee, though I have no power (to get) aught on thy behalf from Allah." (They prayed): "Our Lord! in Thee do we trust, and to Thee do we turn in repentance: to Thee is (our) Final Goal. [Qur'an 60:4]

The Qur'an promotes permanent struggle against non-Muslims - or at least until non-Muslims are converted to Islam, subjected to Islamic authority, or killed. Below is a listing of relevant verses in the Qur'an.

(Q. 2:191) Quran tells Muslims to kill the disbelievers wherever they find them.

(Q. 9:123),to murder them and treat them harshly

(Q.9: 5), slay them

(Q. 8: 65 )fight with them, even if they are Christians and Jews,

(Q. 9: 29) humiliate them and impose on them a penalty tax.

(Q. 2: 193) It orders its followers to fight the unbelievers until no other religion
except Islam is left .

(Q. 14: 17) It says that the non-believers will go to hell and will drink boiling water.

(Q.5: 34) It asks the Muslims to slay or crucify or cut the hands and feet of the
unbelievers, that they be expelled from the land with disgrace and that they
shall have a great punishment in world hereafter.

(Q. 22: 9) As for the disbelievers, it says that for them garments of fire shall be cut
and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is
in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with
hooked iron rods .

(Q.3: 85) Quran takes away the freedom of belief from all humanity and tells clearly
that no other religion except Islam is accepted .

(Q. 5:11) It relegates those who disbelieve in Quran to hell ,

(Q. 9: 28)calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) .

(Q. 9: 23), (Q. 3:28) Quran prohibits a Muslim to befriend a non-believer even if that
non-believer is the father or the brother of that Muslim .

(Q. 25: 52) Quran asks the Muslims to strive against the unbelievers with great endeavor

(Q. 66: 9)be stern with them because they belong to hell .

(Q. 47: 4) The holy Prophet demanded his follower to strike off the heads of the
disbelievers then after making a wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up
the remaining captives .

(Q.4:34) As for women the book of Allah says that they are inferior to men and their
husbands have the right to scourge them if they are found disobedient .

(Q. 66:10) It teaches that women will go to hell if they are disobedient to their
husbands .

(Q. 2:228) It maintains that men have an advantage over the women .

(Q.4:11-12) It not only denies the women's equal right to their inheritance ,

(Q. 2:282)it also regards them as imbeciles and decrees that their witness
is not admissible in the court .

(Q. 4:3) This means that a woman who is raped cannot accuse her rapist unless she can produce a male witness. Muhammad allowed the Muslims to marry up to four wives and gave them license to sleep with their slave maids and as many captive women as they may have.

He himself did just that. This is why anytime a Muslim army subdues another nation, they call them kafir and allow themselves to rape their women.


Pakistani soldiers raped up to 250,000 Bangali women in 1971 after they massacred 3,000,000 unarmed civilians when their religious leader decreed that Bangladeshis are unislamic. This is why the prison guards in Islamic regime of Iran rape the women and then after calling them apostates and the enemies of Allah.

Islam warms against mixing with non-Muslims 2:21, 3:28, 3:118, 5:51, 5:144, 9:7, 9:28, 58:23, 60:4.


Islam calls on Muslims to wage war against non-Muslims 2:191, 2:193,4:66, 4:84, 5:33, 8:12, 8:15-18, 8:39, 8:59-60,8:65, 9:2-3, 9:5, 9:14,9:29, 9:39, 9:73, 9:111, 9:123, 25:52, 37:22-23, 47:4-5, 48:29,69:30-37.


Islam encourages the war against the non-Muslims by glorifying it 2:216, 9:41, 49:15, or by promising lust in paradise to the Shaheeds who die in such a war 3:142, 3:157-158, 9:20--21.
