Mohammed

The next several articles I will post on this blog will be taken directly from the website "Political Islam," and will be the text from their "Thirteen Talks on Political Islam" (see the clickable link at the bottom of this article).

Note that this is about Islam, not Muslims. Muslims are people; Islam is a doctrine and an ideology.

If you know Mohammed, then you know Islam. If you do not know Mohammed, you do not know Islam. Every Muslim's life goal is to imitate Mohammed in every detail. Mohammed led a fascinating life-he was a business man, prophet, politician and warrior. His greatest invention was a political system that can make all others submit.

We're going to study Mohammed before we study the basics of Islam. This is because Mohammed is the origin of Islam and he comes before everything. There was no Islam before Mohammed and he called himself the last of the prophets. In a sense, Islam both begins with Mohammed and ends with Mohammed. The importance of studying Mohammed is found in the Koran itself. Over 30 times the Koran says that every human being is supposed to do everything in their life patterned after Mohammed. Then it turns around and says over 40 times that if you don't do everything like Mohammed did it, you will go to hell. Everything has to be done the way Mohammed did. Mohammed is the perfect pattern of life for all peoples for all time.

We know an enormous amount about the man Mohammed. His biography, the Sira, is over 800 pages long and it is in fine print. Then, as if that were not enough, we have what are called the Traditions of Mohammed, also called the hadith, we have thousands upon thousands of these traditions. We know a lot about this man. As a matter of fact, we probably know more about the personal details of Mohammed's life than we do, for instance, about George Washington.

The importance of Mohammed can be found in the religion of Islam. Most kafirs (kafir is what the Koran calls a non-Muslim) think that you become a Muslim by worshiping the God Allah, but this is not true. You can worship the God Allah and still not be a Muslim. What it takes to be a Muslim is to worship Allah exactly like Mohammed did, and we know exactly how he worshiped his God. A further importance of Mohammed can be found in this: there is not enough in the Koran to enable you to practice the religion of Islam.

There are Five Pillars of Islam which we will study in the next lesson, but there is not enough information in the Koran to practice even one of the Five Pillars. You cannot worship in an Islamic way without imitating Mohammed. Mohammed's way of doing things is so important that it has a very special name: The Sunna. Sunna means The Way.

It is in Mohammed that we find right and wrong, except right and wrong as we think of it in a moral sense is not used within Islam. Instead, the concept is: "What is permitted" and "What is forbidden." What is permitted is what Mohammed did. What is forbidden is what he said not to do, or he himself didn't do, so the Sunna of Mohammed is what dictates Islam. Again, this is the reason we have to study Mohammed.

One of the ways that you can tell how much someone knows about Islam is if they mention Mohammed or not. Sometimes you run into people who want to explain Islam on the basis of the Koran. When this happens, you can be sure you have run into a person who does not really understand Islam. Again, the Koran is not even remotely enough to truly explain Islam. Mohammed defines all the ethics and customs of Islam.

Let's take a very small item. Have you ever been watching a news broadcast and there's some Islamic leader from the Middle East and he's talking and he's angry; perhaps he's shouting. Why do they do this? One simple reason: Mohammed was easily angered. This is recorded in both the Sira and the Hadith, so when you see a Muslim who is quick to anger, he is simply imitating Mohammed.

Mohammed was the perfect father, the perfect husband, religious leader, military leader, and political leader. There is no aspect of life, including business, where a Muslim does not turn to the example of Mohammed. He is the perfect Muslim. There is not a Muslim alive who does not know the life of Mohammed. What is odd is that there are so few kafirs who know anything about the life of Mohammed. When you study Mohammed, it is rather confusing, because he seems to be two very different people.

Let's quickly review his life. He was an orphan as a child and later became a businessman. He went on caravan trading trips to Syria. He was prosperous and well thought of in his community. He was seen as a person who could settle arguments and heal disputes. He was a very religious man, and then, in his 40s, he began to go on religious retreats, leaving the city of Mecca and praying by himself. Then he started to hear a voice, and he saw a vision. Now, this was a voice that no one else ever heard, and a vision that no one else ever saw, but it was very important to Mohammed and it completely changed his life and, indeed, his entire character.

After seeing this vision and hearing the voice, he went back to Mecca and began to tell people--first, his friends and family--that he had been chosen as the messenger of the only God of the Universe. Later this God was named and was called Allah. Mohammed began to introduce two principles that were to change him and to change the entire world forever.

The first of these principles was submission. Mohammed said that the God of the universe told him to tell everyone else that they were to do exactly what he said when he said it---that their lives were to be patterned after him, that he was the perfect man, the perfect pattern. This created dissension within Mecca, because amongst the other things he told the Meccans, was that their ancestors were burning in hell. He then created, at the same time, a second principle called duality. He created a great division between those who believed what he said and those who did not. This was the great division of the Koran---humanity was divided into the believer and nonbeliever, the Muslim and the kafir.

Mohammed was very aggressive in pushing his message. So much so that he irritated the Meccans. He was not very successful as a consequence, and over the next 13 years, in spite of his daily preaching, he failed to gain many followers. He was argumentative and caused trouble, but the Meccans couldn't do anything about him, because he was protected by his uncle who had some power within Mecca. Then, his protector died, and the Meccans told Mohammed, "You'll have to leave. We're sick and tired of living with you. You've created dissension and distress and suffering within our community." So Mohammed went north 100 miles to a town called Medina.

Everything changed, because Mohammed became a politician and a warrior. He did not succeed by numbers when he was a preacher, but now he became overwhelmingly successful because he created a new concept, the concept of jihad. Jihad totally changed Mohammed and totally changed Islam. Now, through jihad, Islam had a way to get money and lots of it. It had a way to bring about political power.

Here we have the second element of duality that Mohammed introduced. There are two Mohammeds. There is the religious preacher Mohammed, and there is the warrior politician Mohammed. Duality is one of the things that is confusing about Islam. It always has two messages to preach, and the reason it has two messages to preach is that there are two Mohammeds. More than that, when you read the Koran it's clear there are two Korans---one Koran which is religious, the other Koran which is political. Mohammed the religious man was not much of a success at all, but Mohammed the political man and the warrior was overwhelmingly successful. In the last nine years of his life he averaged an event of violence every six weeks, for nine straight years. By this process of constant warfare, he became the first ruler of all of Arabia.

Let's look a little more at Mohammed, because he explains everything we see inside of Islam. If there is ever anything that puzzles you about Islam, all you need to do is to look to Mohammed, because if Muslims do it, Mohammed did it.

One of the things we see is that Mohammed did not get along well with his neighbors. Even in his religious phase, he was pushy and aggressive. Remember, the Meccans didn't like him. They said, "You've created more suffering in this community than we've ever had before." Before he became a Muslim, Mohammed was a good neighbor. After he became the messenger of Allah, he became an aggressive neighbor. When he went to Medina, his behavior became even worse.

As an example--when he moved to Medina, half the town was Jewish. Within three years after he arrived, all the Jews had been either driven out of Medina---after their money was taken---or they'd been killed and sold into slavery. But after Mohammed had conquered all of Medina, being a hostile neighbor had a new meaning. If you lived even 100 miles away, Mohammed would show up with his arms and troops and demand that you submit to Allah. Once he ruled all of Arabia, he was still a hostile neighbor. Before Mohammed died, he had struck out to the north to Syria to fight the Christians. His dying words were: "Let there be neither Jew nor Christian left in Arabia."

Mohammed was the most successful military man who ever lived. Let's take a look at this. As political leader he became all-powerful. We have other examples in history of men who became all-powerful and we can measure to some degree how powerful they were by how many people they caused to die. The person who in our known history killed the most people was Mao Tse-Tung. As far as we can tell, figures show that through starvation and persecution and outright executions, Mao Tse-Tung was responsible for the deaths of 77 million people.

Now we come to Mohammed. Mohammed has influenced the deaths through his principle of jihad and aggressive politics of 270 million people---now, this has taken over 1400 years; Mao killed 77 million within his own lifetime. But still, the total of those that Mao killed is fewer than those who were killed in imitation of Mohammed. When you think of a political leader, you may think of Napoleon; you may think of Alexander the Great or Caesar; and they were great generals, but they don't hold a candle to Mohammed, because no one today kills for Napoleon; no one today kills for Caesar; but today, as you're reading this, it is undoubtedly true that somewhere in the world people are being destroyed because of the perfect example of Mohammed.

Mohammed had a very dualistic personality. He had a sense of humor; he loved children. He wept when his favorite warrior was killed. But at the same time, he was a soft-spoken man who laughed heartily when the head of one of his enemies was thrown at his feet. He was the perfect slaveholder and slave trader. Mohammed was deeply involved in slavery. Indeed, one of the ways he financed jihad was through the sale of slaves. He got his slaves in the time-honored way of killing their protectors. He attacked a tribe, killed the male members until the rest surrendered, and then they were given a choice to convert. If they didn't, they were sold into slavery---women, children, and men. This was profitable, and indeed, jihad was profitable. He used jihad to finance more jihad. Mohammed came up with a way to make religion and politics pay and pay well.

Mohammed was a very intolerant man. This is interesting. Before Mohammed, Arabs were noted for their religious tolerance. Indeed, Mecca, the town where Mohammed first rose to power, had over 360 religions. No man was ever injured because of his religion, until Mohammed. Mohammed converted the Arab from being a tolerant person to the most intolerant person; and the reason that the Arab became intolerant was they followed the Sunna of Mohammed.

One of the conventions regarding Mohammed today is that no one can tell a joke about him. You hear jokes about Jesus, Noah, Adam, St. Peter, God...but you never hear a Mohammed joke. You may remember when a Danish cartoonist said, "Let's have a contest and see who can draw the best Mohammed cartoon." People died because of those cartoons, because Mohammed was made fun of. You can't make a joke about Mohammed, not even one. In fact, in Pakistan and other Muslim countries, to tell a joke about Mohammed is literally a death sentence.

There's one more thing about Mohammed which explains Muslims and Islam. He never forgot a slight or an insult...never. When he re-entered Mecca---this time triumphant after the jihad in Medina---the first thing he did---and here we have the essence of the man Mohammed---the first thing he did was to pray; the second thing he did was to have all religious art destroyed. So the religious objects of 360 religions in Mecca were destroyed. Mohammed helped to build the fire and break the objects. The next thing he did was to issue death warrants for five different people who'd criticized him. These were intellectuals, not warriors. For instance, two of the people who were killed were dancing girls. What had they done? They had been in a skit, with a song and a poem that ridiculed Mohammed. Mohammed never forgot an insult.

Mohammed is the most common name in the world even after 1400 years. He continues to be the most influential politician and warrior who ever lived. His life as the Messenger of Allah shapes ethics, morals, politics and culture of over a billion Muslims. His politics have annihilated half of ancient Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism. You need to know about the life of Mohammed.

Persecution or a Great Awakening?

Paul Washer



Today, Friday, Sept. 25, 2009, an expected 50,000 or so Muslims are in Washington until 7 PM, praying to a false god. Obama ignored the National Day of Prayer while hosting a dinner for Muslims during Ramadan. The United States has murdered millions of babies, legalized gay marriage, gone after false gods, and turned against our Creator. And now, we are reaping what we have sown, and God's judgment is against this nation. We have sown to the wind, and we shall reap the whirlwind. If spiritual reformation, revival and nationwide repentance does not come to this country, and very quickly, we may very well experience losing our homes and our cars, and, as Christians, suffering real persecution: going to prison, and worse, because we are Christians. Many who claim to be Christians will forsake the Name of Christ, I think, and show their true colors. Times are going to get really hard, I suspect, and Christians need to be praying, and reading and studying our Bibles, like never before. We have turned our back on God as a nation, and now, it seems God may be using Islam as His judgment against this nation. Rifqa Bary's case is a barometer and example of this, and Christians should be praying for her as well. We need to be witnessing and evangelizing the lost, telling our neighbors, people at the store, people at the mall, people down the street, about Jesus. May the Lord embolden us and motivate us and encourage us to tell others about Jesus, and to have a burden for souls and a heart for the lost. May the Christians in this country, who have so long now been in apathy from material comforts and prosperity, wake up and realize this is not a game. May the Christians in this country follow Christ like they have never followed Him before, forsaking all for the sake of Christ. May the Christians in this country truly learn what it means to die to self and to die to the world, and to live only for Jesus. May the Christians in this country stop focusing on the Health and Wealth gospel, stop focusing on healing and speaking in tongues, etc., and start focusing on getting the gospel out to the lost. May the Christians in this country focus on the fact that Hell is an eternal incinerator where most of the people in this world will be thrown into, and may Christians be burdened to do all that they can to warn the lost about that place you would not want your worst enemy to go to. May we as Christians live only for Jesus, and not for this world, and begin to use every breathing moment to spread abroad the honor of Yahweh's Name, and use our lives for His sake, to bring honor and glory to His Name, rather than to our own names. In the holy and most high Name of Christ Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, God the Son, the Messiah, Who lives and reigns throughout eternity.

Al Taqiyya

Islam mandates deception [taqiyya] when Muslims deal with non-Muslims. Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers if the lie is for the protection of Islam or the furthering of Islamic goals and objectives. In the cause of Islamic expansionism, Muslims falsely inform non-Muslims that: Islam is a "religion of peace", the Quran mandates pluralism of religions, "jihad" is only about an "inner spiritual struggle", unprovoked violence against non-Muslims is un-Islamic, immigrant Muslims wish to fully integrate into Western countries by adopting democratic principles instead of Sharia Law, Muhammad was a man of peace, etc. None of these things are true. Taqiyya is not about truth. Taqiyya is about deception -- lulling Western people into a false sense of security, while, in reality, Islam directs Muslim immigrants to "appear integrated" while actually living as a state-within-a-state...until they take over.





Taqqiyah is the technique of deception to advance the cause of Islam.

It is part of the Jihad strategy of deceiving unbelievers by any means.

Obama's conversion to Christianity as a -- taqqiyah -- which means pious deception, is where he would pretend to be a Christian in order to advance the cause of Islam by way of his political career in the United States.

If Obama is a Muslim believer, his conversion to Christianity fully conforms to the principle of taqqiyah.

"Taqqiyah" is a technique of deception practiced by believing Muslims in order to advance the cause of Islam. It is part of the Jihad strategy based on deceiving unbelievers by any means. Thus exercising "taqqiyah" is considered pious behavior.

Muslims around the world would overwhelmingly see Obama's conversion to Christianity not as a case of "irtidah" (apostasy), but as a case of "taqqiyah" (deception), where Obama pretends to have become a Christian in order to advance the cause of Islam by way of his political career in the U.S.

If Obama were truly a Muslim believer or sympathizer who aspires to the highest office in the U.S., his outwardly conversion to Christianity would fully conform to the principle of "taqqiyah". In fact as a "Trojan Horse" candidate, he would be specifically expected to disguise himself as such. In this context, Muslim leaders would not only fully understand Obama's outwardly conversion, but would also consider him an Islamic hero for doing so in the cause of Islam.

It is important to note that the sincerity of Obama's conversion to Christianity can never be proven, and the possibility that he remains a true believer or sympathizer as to the Islamic cause who is practicing the technique of "taqqiyah", is still a real risk that cannot be discounted.

In this context, one should also not overlook the close relationship and mutual admiration between Black Muslim leader Louis Farrakhan and Pastor Wright, Obama's former spiritual mentor.

"Taqqiyah" is the art of deception used by believing Islamists to further the domain of Islam. As Mo'mad said, "War is deception," which is fitting given how he died between military campaigns. The basic idea is to lie to get what you want. Since the punishment for leaving Islam is death, and since Obama was born Islamic and is therefore an apostate in apparently becoming a Christian, why doesn't the Islamic world seem concerned about Obama as they are when some nobody converts? Could it be they know something Obama's supporters would refuse to believe? The Palestinians seem to think he's their man, so does the Nation of Islam as several of his staffers are NOI members and Louis Farrakhan is another close associate of Obama. If Obama indeed is an Islamic apostate, why do so many in the Muslim world support him, including the most ardent jihadi?

A spiritual war



From what I have learned so far, I think the terms "radical" Islam or "extremist" Muslims are misnomers, because, for one thing, most of the honor killings I have researched, where Muslims men murdered their daughter(s) or wife, merely for things like becoming too "Westernized," were considered to be "moderate" Muslims. A truly devout Muslim---one who strictly follows the Qur'an and hadiths and takes them seriously---though they might not necessarily ever become a suicide bomber, will be in agreement with that ideology, because that is what Islam, the Qur'an, the hadiths (traditions) and the Imams teach.

The only sense in which the term "radical" Islam is correct, I believe, is the sense in which you could call Billy Graham or John Piper or Mark Cahill or Mark Kielar or John MacArthur, "radical" Christians. In other words, if you would call those Christians who are fully committed to Christ "radical" Christians, and lump all such Christians into a group and call it "radical" Christianity, then in that same sense, you could then say that there is such thing as "radical" Islam.

I believe that those who are not considered "radical" Muslims are those Muslims who have been Westernized to some extent.

The video claims that "a very small percentage of Muslims are radical." It has been estimated, by a number of sources, that only 10% of Muslims are "radical." IF that is accurate (and I suspect that is a very conservative number), then there are 900 thousand "radical" Muslims in the United States! And it only took 19 of them to kill 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001. Also, most of those in the U.S., Canada, and Europe who have committed honor killings are not considered to be radical Muslims. And worldwide, if only 10% are "radical" Muslims, that means there are 150 MILLION "radical" Muslims in the world!

I think one important thing the guy said in the video was that "there's been several dozen terrorist attacks that have been foiled...because of those successes, most Americans are able to go about their lives." He also points out that Americans have become complacent.

The best part of the video, IMO, is when the guy says, "the only way to win this war with radical Islam, ultimately, is through the salvation of Muslims into the kingdom of Christ."

POINTS TO PONDER:

-TWO BILLION DOLLARS A DAY IN U.S. OIL funds Muslim terrorists/Jihad.

-Islam is not only a religion, but is also a state (STRICTLY ruling politics and lifestyle, to the point that if you vary from its extremely and radically strict standards, you can be jailed, beaten or killed in any country that is run under Islamic law).

-The Saudis contribute money to American politics, as well as to American universities, in order to buy strong influence in these areas.

-In Saudi Arabia, every week, people are beheaded. Every week there, people get their hands cut off. How can we consider this 'moderate' Islam?

-In [some] schools in the U.S., Canada and England, they teach children to wage war for Islam.

-Muslims always tend to have very large families (average of 8.1 children per family). This alone is causing them to have a population explosion and take over Europe by population.

-There is: Diplomatic Jihad; Economic Jihad; and Political Jihad. All work toward the same goal, and if those are successful enough, Islam can take over a country without violence. In America, there are already: Islamic training camps; Muslim professionals such as doctors and lawyers (which can use their professional influence to advance the cause of Islam); mosques which include Imams [95% of the mosques in the U.S. conduct and/or support terrorist activities]; Muslim chaplains in jails (prisoners are a ripe breeding ground for recruiting new Muslims, and Muslims know this and take full advantage of it); government officials in politics (to help influence the nation towards the future goal of Islamic law); organizations such as CAIR [Counsel for American and Islamic Relations--Legal Protection for Muslims] and ISNA [Islamic Society of North America--Legal Protection for Muslims]; MSA [Muslim Student Association]--Legal Protection for Muslims; money given to colleges and universities by Muslims [that come from our paying for gas] to buy chairs, and in return, the colleges and universities allow them to teach classes in Islam; Obama releasing detained terrorists into all parts of the world; and Muslim Congress [to promote unity among Muslims as well as Islamic knowledge].

-Islamic expansion methods: Jihad; Population; Students; Evangelizing/Recruiting through Jails and Schools; Authoritative Positions.

-Every one of the 55 Muslim countries has an army.

-In America there are 9 million Muslims. It is claimed that only 10% of Muslims are 'radical.' (I am learning that a 'radical' Muslim is merely one who takes the Qur'an and the hadiths [traditions] seriously, following them strictly.) 10% of 9 million is 900 thousand. Radicals are willing to die, and they want the USA gone (dead). ONLY 19 RADICALS KILLED OVER 3000 PEOPLE ON SEPT. 11, 2001. How many radical Muslims do you think it will take to wipe out the USA, which consists of 350 million people?

-Worldwide, there are 1.5 BILLION Muslims total. If only 10% are 'radical,' which is a very conservative number, then that means there is a worldwide army of 150 million Muslim terrorists!! And Americans are funding their terrorist actions every time we put gas in our cars!
