“Can I criticize Islam without fearing for my life?”, a post from JihadWatch.org, with comments

The answer is, in fact, no. We may surmise this from how Islamic tradition records Muhammad himself dealing with criticism. Abu Afak was a poet who was over one hundred years old, and had mocked Muhammad in his verses. Muhammad asked the Sahaba: “Who will avenge me on this scoundrel?” One of the companions murdered Abu Afak in his sleep. Likewise with another poet who mocked him: the poetess Asma bint Marwan. Muhammad on another occasion cried out, “Will no one rid me of this daughter of Marwan?” One of Muhammad’s companions, Umayr ibn Adi, went to her house that night, where he found her sleeping next to her children. The youngest, a nursing babe, was in her arms. But that didn’t stop Umayr from murdering her and the baby as well. Muhammad commended him: “You have done a great service to Allah and His Messenger, Umayr!” (Ibn Ishaq, 674-676)

Then there was Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf. Muhammad again asked his companions: “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” One of the Sahaba, Muhammad bin Maslama answered, “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?” When Muhammad said that he would, Muhammad bin Maslama said, “Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab).” Muhammad responded: “You may say it.” Muhammad bin Maslama duly lied to Ka’b, luring him into his trap, and murdered him. (Bukhari 5.59.369)

Meanwhile, “a member of the mosque congregation said to Sandra that she is free to choose her faith emphasizing that her problem is not with Islam but with the Saudi regime.”

That is not true. In reality, the death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence.

This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-‘ashriyyah, Al-Ja’fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”

Qaradawi also once famously said: “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.”


A week after she protested against the “Islamization” of Canada outside of Masjid Toronto Mosque, Sandra Solomon, an ex-Muslim who became a human rights activist, took advantage of the mosque’s open house on Saturday, February 25, 2017 to deliver a direct message to the Imam Ahmed Shihab and the Muslim community.

Police are investigating possible hate crimes by the protesters who called for banning Islam and an imam at the mosque who recited supplications for the annihilation of the enemies of Islam and purification of al-Aqsa Mosque from the “filth of Jews.”

The following is the message that Sandra Solomon read in Masjid Toronto Mosque (February 25, 2017):

My name is Sandra Solomon. I am an ex Muslim who lived in the Saudi Arabian society governed by 100% Sharia law.

I suffered a lot in Saudi Arabia from the teachings of Islam because of the lack of women rights.

I was neglected, ignored and forbidden to sharing my thoughts on Islam to the point where I was always under risk of being murdered by honor killing from my brother, who attempted to kill me just because I refused to wear the hijab [head scarf].

They forced me into a marriage. Islamic forced marriage is nothing less than institutionalized rape. Do not dare to think otherwise.

I took my child and escaped Saudi Arabia because of the imminent threat of my execution for not following Islamic Sharia [Islamic Law] without question and came to Canada for its freedom.

I came to Canada to live under secular and Constitution Democratic system of law. A law that respects me as a free human being that has the right to live and think and be critical of anyone and anything without living in fear for my life and my child’s life .That is why I am in Canada. I am a subject of Canadian law. Not Sharia [Islamic] law.

I am a victim of Islam and it is my duty to warn others of its true nature. But unfortunately Sharia law is not leaving me. I was surprised when I found that it has followed us here to Canada. There are three Canadian imams on Canadian soil calling for my execution. Their names are, Shahryar Shiakh [“Punishment for apostasy is death”], Ahmad Abdul Qader Kandil [who said that enemies of Islam to be killed, crucified or their limbs cut off] and Said Rageah [who said that person who insults Mohammad may face execution in Islamic State]. All three of them in Canada are openly calling for my execution. Relying solely on the teaching of Quran and Hadith plus the book called human right in Islam distributed at Dundas square [“Islamic Shari’ah decrees execution for the person who apostatizes”]. [For more information on “Quebec, Ontario imams say apostates to be executed by The Islamic State” click HERE].

Ladies and gentlemen, criticism of an ideology and political authority is the most important aspect of free democracy. And for this, the imams all call for my death they do so on the Islamic grounds that I speak truths about Islam, its founder, Mohammad, and that I no longer accept the Islamic ideology, all of which are death penalty crimes under Islamic law, and which Islamic States like Iran, Saudi Arabia, The Islamic State, Afghanistan, Pakistan and dozens of more convict and execute. We see it here in Canada when Muslim girls refuse the hijab like the Shafia girls.

I am standing here in your mosque today, asking for you to show me the tolerance you ask of all Canadians. To accept me for whom I am and the free choices I made to be something other than Muslim. My God, is a God of love and mercy. I offer it to you, and ask you for it in return .My criticism of Islam are [sic] of the ideology, the teachings and scriptures. Not any individual Muslim. Criticizing ideology is not just legal in Canada; it’s the foundation of democracy. Whether it is a religious authority, or political, no person, book, or ideas are above criticism and scrutiny….

I have concern about my life and I would love to get an answer from you Muslims to tell me: Am I going to be killed, or my child is going to be killed or harmed by anyway for me openly criticizing Islam? I want to be comforted.

    Thanks to the Internet, muslims can now read the first biography of Muhammad, by the devout muslim Ibn Ishaq (not an “Islamophobe”):


    If you read the biography, you will understand why so-called “extremists” do what they do (they are copying Muhammad), and why so many muslims are leaving Islam now they are finding out the truth. I have now finished my own personal reading, and can pinpoint the following events with page references:

    Muhammad orders his son-in-law Ali, to behead Al-Nadr bin al-Harith on page 136.
    Muhammad approves the stabbing of Uqba bin Abu Muayt on page 308.
    Muhammad arranges the beheading of Kab bin al-Ashraf on page 364-9.

    Muhammad personally beheads over 600 Jewish prisoners of war on page 494
    Muhammad orders the torturing of treasurer of Khaybar tribe, Kinana on page 515
    Muhammad orders the killing of Abdullah bin Katal’s and one of his singing-girls on page 550-1
    Muhammad approves the murder of Asma bint Marwan on page 675-6.
    Muhammad arranges the assassination of the old man Abu Afak on page 675.
    Muhammad approves the murder of an old one-eyed Bedouin man, by Amr bin Umayya, one of his Jihadist thugs on page 674-5.

    You can read the book here:


    Please go online, and ask muslims to read the biography (most muslims only know what their parents have told them). .

      2 of the Biggest and Longest Running Lies – Islam is religion of Peace !

      Islam is NOT religion . Its a terror, murder, rape , pedophilic cult pretending to be “religion”

      Its never been peaceful or tolerant against non muslims.

      Soros , Saudis/OIC use media and dumb Ignorant Leftists/Liberals for their own nefarious agenda.

      Its deliberate trojan horse program in action or “vicious snakes” as Trump kept warning people about http://tinyurl.com/gwfxa8s

      Muslim consider rape of infidel girls/women as halal (approved) form of prayer to allah http://tinyurl.com/p3tclmp

      And Leftists/Liberals are ok with it !

    “A member of the mosque congregation said to Sandra that she is free to choose her faith emphasizing that her problem is not with Islam but with the Saudi regime.”

    That “member of the mosque” lied for Allah – it’s called Taqjjia, that’s what ‘good’ muslims do for Allah, they lie for him/it, they practice paedophilia for him/it, emulating mohamed and his Aisha, they invade countries for him/it, they preach hatred against Jews, Christians and ALL non-muslims for him/it and, of course the kill/murder/massacre/bomb for him/it.

    This Sandra Solomon is absolutely brave – and creative with it: is that a Jewish Prayer shawl she is wearing on her head ? GOOD FOR HER !!!

    ….ummmmm. Not really. Satan said “I will be like the most High God” and he meant it. If he can’t, he’ll drag everyone he possibly can with him into Hell.

    Her problem was the filthy, dirty, evil, nasty, demonic islam. The liar lied and tried to tell her something against her own common sense…the *problem* is indeed islam. Without islam, the barbarism of the evil code set forth by the saudi government wouldn’t exist….it is islam, islam is the problem.

    islam is a product of satan the devil, a beast for torture, rape, theft and horrendous murders.

    Sandra, I have been watching and listening to you the past couple of months with much interest. Rest assured you and your son are in my prayers and have been since day one. Unfortunately, there is much complacency in Canada and the media has failed to warn us about the penetration of stealth jihad into our democracy. Thanks to voices like yours many are finally waking up to the truth. May the arm of our Lord extend over you to shield you from all harm.

    Inverse proportionality on display here again where Islam is concerned, specifically the more Islam you have the less freedom you have (and, conversely, the less Islam you have, all other things being equal, the more freedom you have).

    This axiom (and yes, it is an axiom and not just a hypothesis) is demonstrative of just how inimical Islam truly is across the board. Oh, there are many other inimical (and stupid) things about Islam, for instance its decided parasitic tendency to take credit for most everything (e.g., Noah was a Muslim, Abraham was a Muslim, Moses was a Muslim, Jesus was a Muslim, blah, blah, blah); its virtually pathological inclination to claim victim status, that is to say to declare ad nauseam a pity party for itself which it does with great regularity; its COMPLETE inability to apologize for its past wrongdoings, which are, to put it mildly, considerable; its opposition to pictorial art; its opposition to music in general; and its hatred for fine beer (for me this is where it gets up front and personal like).

    BUT, where Islam can most be faulted, by far, is on the freedom front, whereby IN THIS WORLD it seeks not only to state what its considers theological truths, as is the wont and prerogative of every religion, but to insure such “truths” are upheld by its deluded devotees IN THIS WORLD, by force if necessary (and it is so often necessary per Muslimthink).

    Most every religion threatens something in the next world if one does not believe or do this, that or the other thing, but Islam is alone among the major religions of the world in its theological blueprint of a dual threat——-punishment in this world by its followers and punishment in the next world by Mo’s hand puppet, Allah. Double whammy to be sure. The ultimate double whammy to be sure.

I guess it is ok for them to Hate Speech Speakers Like Louis Farakhan & that Big Mouth that is locked up in England that preaches Hate Anjem Chousky (SP) Trudeau needs to be removed from office in fact the Citizens should give him 24 Hours to Leave the Country then Physically remove him from office same with Merkel & that Weasel Holland in France they have committed acts of treason & need to pay for it.

    Sandra Solomon is courageous, truly courageous. As an American, it is possible for other Americans and I to lose sight of the precious gift of freedom, until Sandra reminds all of us about the precious gift.
    I hope PM Trudeau regards the concerns of the many refugee Muslims he has elected to bring into Canada. That part of the issue is most commendable, but hopefully those of them who decide to not only take to heart Canadian freedoms, but to elect to follow other freely chosen faiths, as they reconstruct their lives, should be under the protection of the Canadian government the same as the responsible national government in Ottawa protects the freedoms of all law-abiding Canadians.

    “Can I criticize Islam without fearing for my life?”

    Sandra Solomon is a brave woman, and the answer should be yes in civilized Canada–but clearly, it is not.


    A member of the mosque congregation said to Sandra that she is free to choose her faith emphasizing that her problem is not with Islam but with the Saudi regime.

    What crap. Were this true, she would not be threatened by Imams in Canada.

    And what about those “hate crime” laws? How can it be legal to cal for the murder of apostates? (note: this is a rhetorical question. I know Muslims, despite their violence, are seldom or never charged with using hate speech. Those who dare criticize the violence of Islam are, though).

    Freedom of thinking with criticism is a God given brith right! Islam is the temple of Satan! Satan will use all and any means to bring down thinking. Jesus gave himself up on the cross for all who would believe! And said it is finished.

    There’s no such a thing as religion outside Islam. Ex-Moslem remains a Moslem as along as he or she doesn’t change the identity, or doesn’t have a new life, new name, new record.

    Our Ummah has a group notoriously known as Khawarij that nobody can *control*, even those Khawarijites have killed our early caliphs. Their radical career depends a lot on the score of harming whom they count as enemy, such as ex-Moslems. Moderate Moslems just prefer imprisonment to spare the life of ex-Moslems and to calm the society.

    At the lowest level, the Khawarijites gain reputations among themselves by proving their rage and reactionary guts, adding their records with accomplishments of violence. They climb and claim a ladder of leadership by replacing a slower leader who acts less conservative. A leader with soft character will be sacked immediately. Beside using the excuse of “Darura” (using sinful and unislamic business) to collect dirty money, they may use a Taqiyya excuse to misuse the good charity for funding their effort of harming their enemies.

    Mostly, the Khawarijites are newly repentants getting radicalised, having a dark past as big criminals and recidivists whose the past keeps haunting them like something of “unfinished business”, meaning that their criminal members may take their family hostage, seeking a continuous revenge for their decision of quitting from criminal world. They get blackmailed by their former comrades to do what they want as the precondition for releasing their family.

    In certain cases, the radical repentants have a terminal illness due to excessive lavishing behaviors in the past, and they are radicalised to believe that they just have a shorter time to redeem the bigger sins that may seem difficult to be outnumbered by the amounts of rites (righteousness), even if they do it 24 hours a day till death. Hence, they seek a shortcut to make their righteousness and past sins even.
