Allah or the Lord Jesus Christ? …A Bit Scary
>This is interesting and just a bit scary .The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States, Especially in the minority races!!!
>Allah or The Lord Jesus Christ? … By Rick Mathes
>Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training
>session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs. I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say.
>The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for Questions and Answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked:
>’Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and Clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?’
>There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘non-believers! ‘
>I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers Of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your
faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’
>The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of ‘a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.’
>He sheepishly replied, ‘Yes.’
>I then stated, ‘Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope Benedict commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or
>Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!’
>The Imam was speechless!
>I continued, ‘I also have problem with being your ‘friend’ when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me
>ask You a question. Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?’
>You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.
>Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the ‘Diversification’ >training seminar were not happy with Rick’s way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs..
>In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President! I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the liberal justice system, liberal media and the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized.
>Please pass this on to all your e-mail contacts.
>This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader In prison ministry.
>The man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you have a pulse you have a purpose.
>Thank you for taking the time to read this. Now you can either delete it or pass it on. No wishes, or promises or threats – just freedom of choice.
Indeed the content of this email stems from the Western propaganda against Islaam and its teachings. The whole misconception in this story is based on the reply given by the Imaam who somehow was made to become in this narrative the ultimate representative of Islaam without him providing any textual evidences for his position. Did anyone bother to verify whether the answer he gave is even correct?! What do you think? Either way, allow me to clarify.
1st) I quote, ?’Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and Clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel??
In answer to that, let it be known that the term Holy Jihaad or Holy War has no basis in Islaam. And the first thing that the so called Imaam should have done was make that clarification rather than acknowledging that fallacy. Jihaad means struggle in its various forms and it is not restricted to the battlefield. The correct word for war is ?Harb? and for fighting is ?Kitaal?. So how did the word ?struggle? become holy war? Well, that is what the media teaches and that is what the ignorant accept?
2nd) The questioner claimed that most Imaams and Clerics have declared war and that by killing infidels, they are assured a place in heaven. First, Islaamically, the one who has the authority to declare war is the Muslim leader and not the Imaams or Clerics. That war has strict guidelines and has noble objectives. It is not about spilling blood, it is about making the word of Allaah supreme and it is about safeguarding the only True Religion on earth from being annihilated as it was attempted and is still ongoing up to this present day by the various non-Muslim nations with the Christians and the Crusaders on top of the list. It is a joke how the Christians have the nerve to speak about a Loving God and all that nonsense that all educated Muslims know the truth about, yet they have killed billions of people over the years whether other Christians who are of other denominations or Muslims and of course many others. World Wars 1 and 2 had nothing to do with Islaam and Hitler was a Christian… There is no such thing in Islaam where women, children, animals, elderly people, and worshippers of various religions are killed. Not even a house can be destroyed or a tree be cut off. In the case of necessity, Muslims on the battlefield fight against other battle-men and not others. No other nation on earth has such guidelines. Just look at the Biblical teachings regarding this matter:
“Now therefore KILL every male among the little ones, and KILL every woman (female) that hath known man by lying (having sex) with him. “But keep ALIVE for yourselves all the GIRLS and all the women who are VIRGINS.” NUMBERS 31:17-18 “And the Jews salvaged for themselves 32,000 virgins, verse 35; see also verse 40. (b) But of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou (o Jews) shall save alive NOTHING that BREATHES. DEUTERONOMY 20:16 (c) ‘And they (the Jews) UTTERLY DESTROYED all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep, and ASS, with the edge of the sword ” JOSHUA 6:21 (Even donkeys were not spared) (d) “He (Joshua) let NONE remain alive.” Joshua 10:28
Where do you find the above info in the teachings of Islaam? No where and all praise is due to Allaah. Even Jesus whom we Muslim love and cherish, is quoted in the Bible to have said:
“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!
But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed!
Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.
From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three.
They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
So anyone who wishes to point fingers at Muslims for the actions of some, or the misunderstanding of others, needs to have a better understanding of his/her own religion.
I quote again ?I responded, ‘So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers Of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?’?
Then supposedly the cleric says ?YES?!! If so, how come you?re alive? How many Muslims did you come across in your life? Why didn?t anyone kill you? Why did that cleric live up to his statements and bring a bomb and kill all the attendees instead of teaching them? Because this is falsehood and any fair person knows that this is not what Islaam teaches. Not in this sense that is. Muslims want to save people so we invite them to Islaam with no compulsion. Indonesia, the biggest Muslim country never saw a Muslim soldier. Christians and Jews in various Muslim countries have lived in peace and no one killed them. Look at the Coptic Christians in Egypt?
Finally I quote, ?Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me??
That above ultimatum is bogus and void as it corners a person between these 2 options as if there is no other!! First Allaah does not tell us to kill you. Allaah tells us to educate you and invite you to His worship as opposed to the worship of His creation which is what Christianity is based upon. Allaah tells us to treat you with Justice. Here is a Quraanic verse for your benefit.
60:8 Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just.
Where is the killing here? But yes, if we are to be attacked and killed, then we do not turn the other cheek as Islaam must remain as means of guidance for all those who seek it until the Day of Judgment. It is the only monotheistic religion and the only truth from God that has not been distorted. So opening the door for non-Muslims to eliminate Islaam, which is strived for by all nations, is not an option so the Muslims are allowed to defend themselves and their honor. Jesus was of the same position. But Christians do not know the teachings of Jesus, they know the teachings of Paul, their Popes and preachers and they think that they are followers of Jesus indeed. And indeed this is strange.
Here is another description of Jesus in the Bible!!
11 I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he
judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name
written which no one knows but he himself. 13 He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called “The Word of
God.” 14 The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen. 15 Out of his mouth
proceeds a sharp, two-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with a rod of iron. He treads the
winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, Shaddai.16 He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, “KING OF
KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
So where is the loving God?
May Allaah guide you to the truth. Ameen.
