Reading the Qur’an during Ramadan 6: Juz La Yuhibbullah, by Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, topped off with infidel comments for good measure and your reading pleasure

I'm Christian and I Love the Quran74

Once again Allah returns to the enormities of the Jews and the Christians. Those who make no distinction between the prophets of Allah will be rewarded (4:152). Says Ibn Kathir: “Allah threatens those who disbelieve in Him and in His Messengers, such as the Jews and Christians, who differentiate between Allah and His Messengers regarding faith…The Jews, may Allah curse them, believe in the Prophets, except Isa [Jesus] and Muhammad, peace be upon them. The Christians believe in the Prophets but reject their Final and Seal, and the most honored among the prophets, Muhammad, peace be upon him…Therefore, whoever rejects only one of Allah’s Prophets, he will have disbelieved in all of them, because it is required from mankind to believe in every prophet whom Allah sent to the people of the earth.” After the Jews disobeyed Allah repeatedly, Allah “set the seal on their hearts for their blasphemy” (v. 155). The Jews who are “well-grounded in knowledge” believe in Muhammad and Islam (v. 162).

The assertion that “there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death” has been taken to mean that Jesus will return to earth — and when he does, according to Muhammad, he will “break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizya (a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of the Muslim government).” That is, he will abolish the subservient dhimmi status of the non-Muslims, and Islamize the world: “During his time, Allah will destroy all religions except Islam and Allah will destroy Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal (the False Messiah).”

Allah warns Christians to remember that Jesus was a created being and not to say “Three” (v. 171) — that is, not to say God is a Trinity. Ibn Kathir echoes the Qur’an itself (5:116) in saying that the Christians elevated Jesus “and his mother to be gods with Allah”; the actual Christian Trinity of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is not envisioned in the Qur’an.

Allah spends most of Sura 5, “The Table,” castigating the Jews and the Christians for their various sins and offenses. If you think he was angry with them in suras 2-4, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

This sura dates from the Medinan period (as do suras 2-4) — according to Islamic tradition, this was the latter part of Muhammad’s career, when his revelations were longer, angrier, and more violent. Allah begins by exhorting Muslims to obey his commands regarding food, religious observances, and sexual morality (vv. 1-11). He permits Muslim men to marry not only “chaste women from among the believers,” but also “chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you” (v. 5).

However, he says nothing about Muslim women being permitted to marry non-Muslim men, and indeed, this is prohibited in Islamic law.

This is part of the subjugated status of the dhimmis, the “protected people,” in Islam: traditionally a man takes his wife into his own household, but not vice versa. The prohibition of Muslim women marrying non-Muslim men, and the allowance of Muslim men marrying non-Muslim women, means that the Islamic community will always be in a position to grow, while the non-Muslim community declines.

Then, Allah returns to raking the Jews and Christians over the coals (vv. 12-26). Allah, he tells us, “had already taken a covenant from the Children of Israel” (v. 12), but the Jews broke it. And so “for their breaking of the covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard.”

Why? Because they have altered the revelations they received from Allah: “They distort words from their usages and have forgotten a portion of that of which they were reminded.” (v. 13) Allah warns Muslims that they will find Jews to be just as treacherous today: “And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them.”

Nonetheless, he tells Muslims to “pardon them and overlook. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” (v. 13). According to Allusi in his Ruhul Ma’ani, this forgiveness should be extended only to those Jews who become Muslims or agree to pay the jizya and accept subservient dhimmi status in accord with 9:29. Tabari, on the other hand, suggests that v. 13 was abrogated by the commands to wage jihad against the unbelievers that came later in Muhammad’s career.

The Christians, meanwhile, “forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded,” so Allah punished them: “We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection” (v. 14). Thus as far as the Qur’an is concerned, the divisions among Christians demonstrate the falsity of the religion — a proposition for which Jesus stated the obverse: “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).

Says Ibn Kathir, “Indeed, the numerous Christian sects have always been enemies and adversaries of each other, accusing each other of heresy and cursing each other … Each sect among them will continue to accuse the other of disbelief and heresy in this life and on the Day when the Witnesses will come forth.” The Jews and Christians should accept Islam, as it reveals what they have concealed: “O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our Messenger making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much. There has come to you from Allah a light and a clear Book.” (v. 15).

Allah, in several places in the Qur’an, presents himself as the arbiter between these warring Christian sects, clearing up questions that are disputed among them. Thus when asserting that Jesus was not crucified, but someone who looked like him was crucified in his stead (a position held by some Gnostic Christian sects), Allah says “those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.” (4:157) And here the Qur’an declares that those Christians who believe that “Allah is Christ, the son of Mary” have “certainly disbelieved.” The Arabic word used here is kafara, (كَفَرَ); it is a form of kufr, unbelief.

Islamic spokesmen in the West frequently assert that the Qur’an never refers to Christians as infidels or unbelievers, when in fact this verse is quite clear that those who believe in the divinity of Christ are unbelievers indeed. To those Jews and Christians who claim to be God’s children, Allah directs Muhammad to retort, “Then why does He punish you for your sins?” (v. 18).

Then Allah retells the story of Cain and Abel (vv. 27-34), culminating in one of the most oft-quoted verses of the Qur’an, the one that Presidents Bush and Obama, as well as many other Western non-Muslim leaders, refer to most frequently:

Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption in the land — it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one — it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, after that, throughout the land, were transgressors. (v. 32)

There is less to this than Western leaders and Islamic apologists claim.

In his 2009 Cairo speech, Obama selectively quoted a pivotal verse damning the Jews. Obama made it seem to be a verse upholding the Western view regarding the infinite value of each life.

First, note that it is not a general prohibition of killing — there are big exceptions for those who kill “for a soul or for corruption in the land.” Second, this is not a general command, but one only for the Children of Israel. Third, “many of them, after that … were transgressors” — so all it is really saying is that Allah gave a command to the Children of Israel and they transgressed against it.

(Meanwhile, some Islamic authorities interpret this passage in a supremacist manner, as applying only to Muslims: Sa’id bin Jubayr explains: “He who allows himself to shed the blood of a Muslim, is like he who allows shedding the blood of all people. He who forbids shedding the blood of one Muslim, is like he who forbids shedding the blood of all people.”)

Never mentioned by the many who quote this verse as if it condemns Islamic jihad violence are the caveats above.

Nor do they mention that it is followed by v. 33, which specifies the punishment for the corruption and transgressions of the Children of Israel: “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”

Thus this passage is explaining what must be done with Jews who reject Muhammad, not dictating lofty moral principles. Ibn Warraq sums it up: “The supposedly noble sentiments are in fact a warning to Jews. ‘Behave, or else’ is the message. Far from abjuring violence, these verses aggressively point out that anyone opposing the Prophet will be killed, crucified, mutilated, and banished!”

Allah follows that with more warnings of hellfire (vv. 35-40). Amidst them, he prescribes amputation of a hand for theft (v. 38). Said Muhammad: “Let there be the curse of Allah upon the thief who steals an egg and his hand is cut off, and steals a rope and his hand is cut off.”

In verses 41-60, Allah consoles Muhammad for the Jews’ and Christians’ rejection of him, and he and his message are again presented as the crown and completion of the messages brought to them by their prophets. But the Christians are told: “let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein” (v. 47), which seems to suggest that Muhammad was assuming that the Christian Scriptures were not corrupted in his day, although today it is common Islamic teaching that the New Testament as we have it is not the original, but has been altered by wicked Christians to reflect their false doctrines.

Thus Muslims are not to befriend Jews and Christians (v. 51); Ibn Kathir explains: “Allah forbids His believing servants from having Jews and Christians as friends, because they are the enemies of Islam and its people, may Allah curse them.” Allah continues in this vein in vv. 52-60, excoriating the hypocrites and the People of the Book (most of whom are “defiantly disobedient” — v. 59), reminding them that some of “those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry” were transformed into “apes and pigs” (v. 60).

Allah is just getting warmed up in expounding upon the wickedness of the Jews and Christians. In vv. 61-86, he criticizes the Jews and Christians for refusing to follow Muhammad. Why don’t the Jews’ rabbis stop their evil behavior (v. 63)? They even dare to say that “the hand of Allah is chained” (v. 64).

Allah’s hand is chained? It is unclear what Jewish concept, if any, the Qur’an is referring to in this case. Ibn Kathir comments: “Allah states that the Jews, may Allah’s continuous curses descend on them until the Day of Resurrection, describe Him as a miser. Allah is far holier than what they attribute to Him.” He is also absolute will, with hand absolutely unchained: Allah’s unchained hand is a vivid image of divine freedom. Such a deity can be bound by no laws. Muslim theologians argued during the long controversy with the heretical Islamic Mu’tazilite sect, which exalted human reason beyond the point that the eventual victors were willing to tolerate, that Allah was free to act as he pleased. He was thus not bound to govern the universe according to consistent and observable laws. “He cannot be questioned concerning what He does” (Qur’an 21:23).

Accordingly, there was no point to observing the workings of the physical world; there was no reason to expect that any pattern to its workings would be consistent, or even discernible. If Allah could not be counted on to be consistent, why waste time observing the order of things? It could change tomorrow. Stanley Jaki, a Catholic priest and physicist, explains that it was the renowned Sufi thinker al-Ghazali who “denounced natural laws, the very objective of science, as a blasphemous constraint upon the free will of Allah.” The great twelfth-century Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides explained orthodox Islamic cosmology in similar terms, noting that Islamic thinkers of his day assumed “the possibility that an existing being should be larger or smaller than it really is, or that it should be different in form and position from what it really is; e.g., a man might have the height of a mountain, might have several heads, and fly in the air; or an elephant might be as small as an insect, or an insect as huge as an elephant. This method of admitting possibilities is applied to the whole Universe.”

Relatively early in its history, therefore, science was deprived in the Islamic world of the philosophical foundation it needed in order to flourish.

It found that philosophical foundation only in Christian Europe, where it was assumed that God was good and had constructed the universe according to consistent and observable laws. Such an idea would have been for pious Muslims tantamount to saying, “Allah’s hand is chained.”

Allah also says that whenever the Jews “kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it.” (v. 64) That is, says the Tafsir al-Jalalayn, “war against the Prophet(s).” According to Bulandshahri, “The Jews make every effort to instigate wars against the Muslims, but Allah foils their attempts each time, either by instilling terror in their hearts or by their defeat in these battles.” The Jews also “strive to do mischief on earth” — that is, fasaad (فَسَاد) — for which the punishment is specified in v. 33: offenders must be “killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land.”

Allah exhorts the Jews and Christians to follow what is written in the Torah and Gospel, and promises Paradise to those who do so (vv. 66, 68-9). This is not (as it is often represented) a manifestation of ecumenical generosity, but rather an expression of the Qur’an’s assumption that it confirms the message of the earlier books, which prophesied Muhammad’s coming.

Ibn Kathir tells Jews and Christians that they will have “no real religion until you adhere to and implement the Tawrah [Torah] and the Injil [Gospel]. That is, until you believe in all the Books that you have that Allah revealed to the Prophets. These Books command following Muhammad and believing in his prophecy, all the while adhering to his Law.”

Then Allah in v. 72 repeats the denial of the divinity of Christ — and the labeling of those who believe in it as “unbelievers” — of v. 17, and in v. 73, he repeats the denial of the doctrine of the Trinity from 4:171. Jesus and his mother are again presented as the other members of the divine trio with Allah, but they were mortal: they both used to eat earthly food (v. 75) — “like all other human beings,” says the Tafsir al-Jalalayn, and one who is such cannot be a god because of his compound being and fallible nature, and because of the [impurities such as] urine and excrement that he produces.” The actual Christian concept of the Incarnation, with Christ being both fully God and fully human, doesn’t enter into consideration.

Meanwhile, for their part the disbelieving Jews are cursed by both David and Jesus for their disobedience (v. 78).

      If you would be a true Christian you would love the Bible and not wasting time with a perverted heresy which is insane and anti-human.
      What ever you wrote is preposterous and hides a false Christianity. Jesus says:’ You are either with Me or against Me.” Whose side are you? You embrace a luciferic dogma which is satanic.
      What you say about the thousands of girls raped hundreds of times or burned alive for refusing to become sex slaves? You are an exponent of the Western decayed society which will be Islamized and annihilated soon.
      You better read the Bible!

      It sure seems like when Mo (and his alter ego Allah) made up, er, “wrote” this religion he had a passing familiarity with Judaism and Christianity but he sure didn’t understand the principles of either. It’s a sad time that the ancient Meccans and Medinans (who were a mixture of Christian, Jewish, and Pagan followers) didn’t see how a “religion” of war was being created right under their noses.

      I suspect Mo wouldn’t have made any references to other religions except for the fact that he used it as a way to make it seem like Islam was a real religion too. It’s amazingly convenient for Mo that whenever he was horny there would be a revelation that Allah would allow “the messenger” to do whatever he needed to get away with.

      Sick and completely incompatible with true Judeo-Christian beliefs.

    THE WOMAN HOLDING THAT SIGN IS JORDAN DENARI — WHO WORKS FOR THE SAUDI WAHHABIST LIE FACTORY AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY IN WASHINGTON DC.

    For those of you who do not know about the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding — abbreviated as “ACMCU” — take some time to search for Robert’s posts here on Jihad Watch.

    The House of Saud, by a $20 million dollar gift a couple of decades ago, persuaded Georgetown University, founded in 1789 as a Jesuit institution, and formerly one of America’s most respected vectors for rigorous scholarship, to begin a slow but inexorable slide down the ladder of dhimmitude.

    The current manifestation of such craven cowardice is ACMCU — with human slimebuckets John Esposito and Nathan Lean as two of its prime staffers. And, of course, the “Muslim-Christian” part of ACMCU’s name is just a diversion from the ACTUAL GOAL OF ENDLESSLY PEDDLING THE ISLAMOPHOBIA VICTIMHOOD NARRATIVE.

    Visit the Georgetown website to see what I mean. The newest tactic is what Esposito describes as the Bridge Initiative — a :”multi-year” undertaking designed not to build any true bridges of connection between Christians and Muslims (because, of course, orthodox Islam is committed to slaughtering all of them if they don’t convert).

    It is instead a clever way to hypnotize multicultural, gullible, clueless faculty, students, alumni, and benefactors so those fat comfy “royals” over in Sandy Arabia have additional years to bring about the destruction of the United States.

    Not too long ago here on JW, I asked you to contact Georgetown’s president, and remind him of how deeply he has compromised the integrity of that university by permitting chronic major deception to happen without any factual pushback, and also to look into his own God-given soul regarding such a serious and perfidious decision.

    I AGAIN REQUEST THAT JIHAD WATCH READERS DO SO. His email address is not published on Georgetown’s website, but his office phone number is. Keep the call polite, concise, perhaps including a short recapitulation of how YOU journeyed from ignorance to knowledge about Islam’s essence and agenda for Infidels.

    Also, before getting in touch with him, devote a few minutes especially to the writings of Jordan Denari, with a Google search as their locator. If you manage to read more than a few sentences of her disgusting taqiyya without throwing up, I would be surprised. She is supposedly a Catholic who loves kind-hearted Islam, and the Qur’an, working hard at ACMCU to tell all of us such absolute deception.

    BE SURE TO MENTION JORDAN DENARI WHEN YOU PHONE GEORGETOWN’S PRESIDENT. Such utter betrayal of alleged faith puts her waist deep in the blood of Christians murdered by Muslims. John Esposito and Nathan Lean are beyond respect, but you can also include their names in a phone call or voicemail to the Georgetown president.

    This is all part of Satan’s master plan. And isn’t it successful? Many people follow its dictates, and an equally large number subserviently bow to these dictates and support the followers by turning a blind eye to them, or openly supporting them as we see most of our world leaders doing accompanied by the media.

    My word! It really is a clever plan, even though it needed 1,400 years to come to fruition. You see, during the last 1,400 years people had beliefs, and values, and seem to have been blessed with much greater intelligence and foresight than those of today.

    For 1,400 years his plan was clear for all to see, and was rejected. No longer. He’s a smart cookie Old Nick. In the last 100 years he has undermined the foundations of Judeo-Christian civilization calling truth into question and promoting falsehood and all its forms. The world has fought back against the evils of Communism, Fascism and Nazism. But there is no more wind in the sails. Evil is no longer rejected but foisted onto us as a right to be respected. People no longer know evil when they see it.

    That poor girl holding that sign is showing just how confused and led astray she actually Is. If she had really been well taught the Bible and also the large outstanding contractions between Bible based Christianity and the very essence she would not by holding up that outlandish sign. This that stated is a good thing to define what Islam really is .Of the many ways Islam may be described, one of them is that a religion of denial. Meaning that Islam denies that Jesus is the Son of God. As in the Son of God Who is God the Father. Furthermore, Islam denies the Jesus is God the Son. In addition, Islam denies that Jesus is God. Before going over these three denials of Islam it first should the stated the Bible instructs the way to tell if a prophet or religious teacher is really from and of God or not is do the teachings and doctrines of that prophet of teacher really fit in accord what is found in the Bible ? For if that prophet or teachers and teachers doctrines that are in contradiction to the Bible then that prophet is a false prophet and that religious teacher is a false teacher and thus in doctrinal error and darkness. Likewise if a religion had teachings and doctrines that are in contradiction that is religion is in error also part of the world of darkness and is therefore a false religion. As the Bible instructs in Isaiah 8:20. “To the law of the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” [K.J.V.] With this clearly stated, three things should be known. First, that Islam denial that Jesus is the Son of God is in great contradiction to the teaching of the Bible . Which reveals the Jesus is the Son of God? As seen in ,for example Matthew 3:16,17. 16:15,16. Luke 1:35. John 3:16-18, 36. First John 2:22,23. 4:14,15. 5:12,13. Second, that Islam denies that Jesus is God the Son is in strong contradiction to the Bible. As found in Hebrews 1:6-8. With emphasis on verse 8. Third, Islam’s denial that Jesus is God is in great contrast to the doctrine and teaching of the Bible. That Jesus is God may be found in ,for example, John 1:1;3. Colossians 1:15-17. 2:9. Romans 9:5 Second Peter 1:1. Titus 2:13. First John 5:20. Moreover, to further discover that the Bible teachings that Jesus is God all a person has to do is to compare the Old Testament with New Testament to see that Jesus is God. As in comparing Isaiah 45:22,23. with Philippians 2:5-11. Also by comparing Psalm 89:8,9. with Mathew 8:23-27. will reveal that Jesus is God. Likewise , by comparing Psalm 62:5-7 . with First Corinthians 10:4. shows the Deity of Jesus. Even by comparing the News Testament books together will show that Jesus is God. As in comparing Romans 14:12. with John 5:22. will show Jesus to be God. The list can go on but this should be enough, for all who are willing to see the truth , that Jesus is, indeed, the Son of God. That Jesus is God the Son and that Jesus is God. The imams and mullahs as well as the other apologists for Islam will try to “explain’ this all away by making the claim that the Bible had been corrupted by Christians ,through time, and that’s way the Bible reads as it does. This claim, very much, underestimate the Power of God to protect and preserve His Word ,through time , and to keep in intact and away from the corruption of men. In conclusion, in light and information of the Bible in can be seen that Islam is a awful and terrible doctrinal error concerning it teaching about the Nature of Jesus and therefore Islam is part of the world of darkness. So Islam with its strong contradictions to the Bible is a false religion, Proverbs 14:12. So all dear Muslims are thus invited to leave the false religion of Islam and come the and receive the Jesus of the Bible who is the only way to heaven ,John 14:6. and the True Light of the world. John 8:12.

    This girl holding that absurd sign might be a person who in and member of worthless churches and have long forsaken the Bible truth and embraced folly and error instead. Such as the United Methodist church and the Presbyterian church which both have many minsters in them who are lying men who speak many falsehoods to the people in their churches One of the many examples of this folly and error is is this the so called “Interfaith worship services” between Christians and Muslims, under the false pretext that “both Christians and Muslims believe in and worship the same God.” Furthermore,to be even more clear it needs to be stated that there are a number of apologists for Islam, some are imams and mullahs and strangely enough, even some so called “Christian” minsters as the U,.M C. and the Presbyterian church , who have the outstanding claim that Christians and Muslim both believe in and worship the same God. So it stands to reason that it’s important to know if this claims valid and true or invalid and false. The facts are that the god of Islam or the Muslims is a single being. In great contrast the God of Christianity, of the Christians consists as the Trinity. By the Trinity it means that “Within the essence of the one True God there are Three Persons. Being God the Father. God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Not three gods in one But Three Distinct Persons in One God. Being the Tri-Personal Nature of God, Matthew 3:13-17. Second Corinthians 13:14. . The Bible teaches, the Father is God, Galatians 1:1.The Son is God, First John 5:20. The Holy Spirit is God, Acts 5:3,4. Not three gods but the one and only Triune God. As further explained in the Christian book MAJOR BIBLE THEMES by Lewis Sperry Chafer on page 39 which informs the readers that “Many believe that the doctrine of the Trinity in implicit in the use of the word Elohim, as the name of God which is in a plural form and seems to refer to the Triune God. “ Likewise, in the Christian magazine PERHAPS TODAY November/December 2013 on page 8 it reads about Genesis 1:1. “In the beginning God [this is the plural noun Elohim, meaning ‘more than one’] created the heaven and the earth.” Furthermore, a bit of a view of the inner workings of the Trinity together may be seen in that the God the Father raised Jesus from the dead. Romans 10:9,10. Jesus raised Himself from the dead, John 2:19,20. The Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead, Romans 8:11.The inner-workings of the Trinity of God may also be seen in the fact that the Father sanctifies, First Thessalonians 5:23. The Son sanctifies, Ephesians 5:26. Hebrews 2:11; 9:12,14;13:12.The Holy Spirit sanctifies ,Romans 15:16. Second Thessalonians 2:13. Getting back to the Bible book of Genesis. In Genesis 1:26 in reads “The God said let US make man in Our image , according to our likeness…” The words are the plural “Us” and “Our.” As in “We the Trinity” For the very next verse, 27, it further reads “So God created man in His own image…” In verse 26 it’s the plural “Us” and “Our” to the singular “His” That is Three Persons in One God. In addition, in the New Testament in Matthew 28:19 It further reads the Jesus said “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the the Son and the Holy Spirit.” [N.K.J.V] That is “name” not “names.” In conclusion the many apologists and propagandists for Islam for Islam who make the claim that Christians and Muslims believe in and worship the same God are make an untrue and outright false claim. For the God of Christianity, Christians and the Bible is not the god of Islam Muslims and the Koran.

    Throughout most days one kiosk employee might eat in her off time but now I see her reading the koran pages near the end of the book in offtime, or praying behind the kiosk in offtime.

    As a Christian, I certainly don’t ‘love’ the quran. No way, since the Bible clearly teaches that love must be “sincere”:

    “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.” — Romans 12:9

    And we are to cling to the good shepherd, Jesus Christ …

    Question: “What did Jesus mean when He said ‘I am the good Shepherd’?”

    Answer: http://www.gotquestions.org/Good-Shepherd.html

    “Woman leaves islam, after reading the quran for herself”

    Prayer is form of meditation to the higher self in any religion and is proven to make people feel more fulfilled. Thoughts do carry real, measurable weight.

    Prayer can not or should not come with “conditions”. Muslim women have to meet various “conditions” if they are to pray on their own and most of what I have seen is that; it is always men making the :dive: to the carpet.
    All bets are off right there but here comes the bought and paid for lefty agenda with smiley face, happy white libby girl. Where are the Fembots on the rights for Muslim females to make even a simple payer whenever they want?
    The “condition” for that girls allowance to hold that sign are in a link below straight from your local neighborhoods brutal and oppressive Sharia nimrod.

    “I’m a Christian and I love the Qur’an.”

    You’re also a clueless Leftist with your thumb in an awkward place.

    The doctrines “love your neighbor as yourself” and “subjugate or murder your neighbor if he does not believe exactly as you do” could not be more opposed.

    It is plainly written. One need not pretend.

2 Responses to Reading the Qur’an during Ramadan 6: Juz La Yuhibbullah, by Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, topped off with infidel comments for good measure and your reading pleasure

    Many Non-Moslems even certain Christian apologists love so much Qur’an is because it has minimal punishment and minimal hatred if compared to the Bible. Mostly Moslems regard the Hadith as a Torah-lite jurisprudence, as they both have temporal and conditional practice, and much practical than the impractical utopia of the Gospels.
    Certain Christian apologists have to mention Hadith (that has less or equal punishment than that of the Torah) when explaining why there are many punishments that Qur’an doesn’t command Moslems to do.

  2. θ says:

    Mentioning Hadith and scholar’s bias when talking about Qur’an is something dishonest that Qur’an criticises in Q.2, v.79 and Q.17, v.88.
