I am invariably outraged and distressed that the Media and Academia call Muhammadan Islam a Religion when in fact it is a CULT.
The level of Political Correctness that permeates both the Media and Academia is stifling and destroying people's ability to Question, to Debate and to Disagree about the subjects of Religion, Ethnicity, Race, Colour , etc.
This Political Correctness has sunk the level of intellect, of enquiry, and of debate, to the abyss of utter stupidity and cowardice. This series of "Idiot's Guide to Islam" does its best, to correct this abject surrender, imbalance and abdication of logic and morality.
In the Oxford dictionary a CULT is described as: A system of veneration and devotion, directed towards a particular figure or object, such as the cult of Stalin, Mao Tse Tung and others.
RELIGION on the other hand, is the ideas, rituals and institutions which bind a certain community or even a group of communities creating a distinctive tradition and belief system in worshipping a superhuman controlling power especially a personal God or gods.
Most people, whether followers of Muhammad or not, do not know that Muhammad's SUNNA is actually considered and acted upon as equal to the Quran and in some cases over rules Allah's instructions.
For those who do not know, let me explain what Sunna is. Sunna is an Arabic word that means habit or usual practice. The Muslim usage of this term refers to the sayings and living habits of Muhammad.
The Sunna of Muhammad includes his specific words, habits, practices, and silent approvals. It is significant to the traditions of Muhammadan Islam because it addresses ways of life dealing with friends, family, and government.
In the context of the biographical records of Muhammad, Sunna indeed often stands synonymous to hadith as most of the personality traits of Muhammad are known through descriptions about him, his sayings and his actions.
Based entirely upon the Arabic Muslim sources, I shall now PROVE that Muhammadan Islam is a CULT and NOT a Religion:
Al Baqara 2: 119 "Verily We have sent thee in truth as a bearer of glad tidings and a warner [natheera]"
Al Imran 3: 132"And obey Allah and the Apostle; that ye may obtain mercy"
*** In numerous verses in the Quran, they instruct the followers of Muhammad to obey Allah and his apostle. That is, they must follow the Quran and Muhammad's SUNNA.
Moreover, all of the above verses assert that Muhammad is only a WARNER and bringer of Glad Tidings. The word Messenger/Rasool does not appear in any of them ***
Al A'araf 7: 188Say: "I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the unseen, I should have multiplied all good and no evil should have touched me, I am but a warner [natheera] and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have faith."
*** Muhammad asserts in the verse above that he is not even a Prophet since he cannot PREDICT the FUTURE: as he had no KNOWLEDGE of the UNSEEN ***
Sad 38: 65Say "Truly am I a warner [natheera]: no god is there but the One Allah Supreme and Irresistible
Al Ahqaf 46: 9Say: "I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the apostles, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I follow but that, which is revealed to me by inspiration: I am but a warner, open and clear."
*** This verse, is among one of the most important in the Quran since Muhammad is asserting that he is NOT bringing a NEW RELIGION "I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine" NOR was he a PROPHET foretelling the future "nor do I know what will be done with me or with you" ***
Al Thariyaat 51: 51 "And make not another an object of worship with Allah: I am from Him a warner [natheera] to you clear and open!
*** I would like readers to be aware that almost every verse above was allegedly revealed to Muhammad during his Meccan CONCILIATORY PERIOD even if some of the verses appear mixed among the Madina ones as repeatedly and erroneously happened during the Compilation of the Quran.
Most of these verses were subsequently ABROGATED, that is overturned or over ruled by several of the later ones from the Madina period ***
Al AhhZab 33:21 "You have indeed a noble paradigm in the Apostle of Allah." [A second translation reads:] "You have in (Muhammad) the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern of conduct for anyone to follow." [A third reads:] "Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day." [A fourth reads:] "Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent prototype." [A fifth says:] "You have indeed a noble paradigm [archetype, exemplar, standard, model, or pattern] to follow in Allah's Apostle."
33:36 "No Muslim has any choice after Allah and His Apostle have decided a matter."
*** It was during Muhammad's Madina period that he started associating himself EQUALLY with Allah with an unending number of "Allah and His Apostle" MANTRA ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.689Narrated by Said bin Ubada Al Ansari
that he consulted the Prophet about a vow that had been made by his mother who died without fulfilling it. The Prophet gave his verdict that he should fulfill it on her behalf. The verdict became Sunna (i.e. the Prophet's tradition).
The following is the most important extract from Muhammad's sermon to his followers, his last will and testament just before he died in the year 632AD.
Muwatta, 46/3; Muhammad said in his last sermon:
"O People, understand my words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and myexample, the SUNNA, and if you follow these, you will never go astray"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.381Narrated by Hudhaifa
Allah's Apostle said to us: … the Qur'an was revealed and the people read the Qur'an, (and learnt it from it) and also learnt it from the Sunna." Both Qur'an and Sunna/ Prophet's Traditions, strengthened the faithful believers' honesty."
Ishaq:391 "O people, this is Allah's Apostle among you. Allah has honored and exalted you by him. So help him and strengthen him. Listen to his commands and obey them."
Ishaq:467 "Allah addressed the believers and said, 'In Allah's Apostle you have a fine example for anyone who hopes to be in the place where Allah is.'"
*** In the above, Allah himself - the alleged creator of the universe - asserts that Muhammad should be fully emulated. This by and of itself is CULTISM***
There are instructions in Muhammad's Quran that are NOTfollowed because the Muhammadan exegetes decided for their convenience to follow his Sunna instead. That is Sunna overrules Quran.
Case 1 of the Stoning Verse~
The case of the Stoning Verse or Ayat al Rajm is a perfect example. A verse that does not exist in Muhammad's Quran, but only in his Sunna.
Al Nur 24: 2 "The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication flog each of them with a hundred stripes..."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.825 Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar
The Jews came to Allah's Apostle and mentioned to him that a man and a lady among them had committed illegal sexual intercourse. Allah's Apostle said to them, "What do you find in the Torah regarding the Rajam (Stoning verse)
Deuteronomy 22.22"If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die (by Stoning), both the man that lay with the woman and the woman; so shalt thou put away evil from Israel"
Then Allah's Apostle ordered that the two persons be stoned to death, and I saw the man bending over the woman so as to protect her from the stones"
Why don't the followers of Muhammad NOT comply with Allah's perfectly clear decree (inflicting 100 stripes) but follow the ones of Muhammad's Sunna (stoning to death)?
How is it possible for any believer to abide by Muhammad's Sunna and NOT by Allah's commands?
Why would Muhammad's Sunna over rule Allah's explicit edict?
I repeat again, the answer resides in the fact that the scholars of Islam - when it suits their agenda - consider Muhammad's Sunna equal and sometimes superior to Allah's revelations.
Sahih Al-Bukhari 8.816Narrated by Ibn Abbas
'Umar (ibn al Khattab) said, "I am afraid that after a long time has passed, people may say, 'We do not find the Verses of the Rajam (stoning to death) in the Holy Book,' and consequently they may go astray by leaving an obligation that Allah has revealed.
"Lo! I confirm that the penalty of Rajam be inflicted on him who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if he is already married …"Surely Allah's Apostle carried out the penalty of Rajam, and so did we after him"
The scholars of Islam exhibit an unusual 'Split Intellectual Disorder Syndrome' that they suffer regarding many of the Quran and Sunna instructions and contradictions.
Umar asserts that the stoning was to be applied ONLY to men or women who are married and yet fornicate (emulating the Torah of the Jews). This punishment did not apply to men or women who have consensual sex when unmarried.
Yet, contrary to the letter and spirit of all the above, the enforcers of Sharia, stone adulterers to death be they married or unmarried over rulingboth Quran and Sunna.
Case 2 the subjects of Hijab and Niqab~
In the Quran the term Hijab is invariably used to mean a (Screen/Curtain/Divide) specifically to separate the guests from the females of Muhammad's household.
The story that explains the reason for the particular 'revelation' of this verse is mentioned in detail in Bukhari Hadith 8.255/7.
The Arabic word Hijab is used in the Quran - four times - as in the following verses 7:46; 17:45; 38:32; 42:51 to describe a screen, a divide, a separator, a curtain, a veil of separation.
In none of them, is the word associated with any kind of dress or costume covering the whole body of anyone or anything.
Al Ahzab 33: 53 "O ye who Believe! enter not the Prophet's houses until leave is given you … Such (behavior) annoys the Prophet: He is ashamed to dismiss you but Allah is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth.
And when you ask (his ladies) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen/ (Hijabi) that makes for greater purity for your hearts and theirs. .."
It is crystal clear from the verse above, that all of its 'instructions' are to do with Muhammad's personal annoyance at the behaviour of his guests.
As usual with Muhammad and his Quran, an instant Made to Order 'revelation' was descended, to turn his personal objections into unchallengeable 'divine sanctions', emanating from the unsuspecting mouth of the supreme pagan god of the Ka'ba, called Allah.
By no stretch of the imagination can any intelligent being construe, that this verse implies or means 'to cover the body of the female believer with any clothing'. It only admonishes that there should be a separation between the guests area of the home of the believers from the private area.
While the idea of the Hijab was to create an atmosphere of modesty among the females and males of the believers, the male Muhammadan exegetes created an incredible set of lies to control their women in body, soul and mind rendering them totally subservient to their will.
To prove my point, I put down a challenge worth £10,000 to the first human being who can show all of us the word Hijab or Niqab in the Quran as describing the covering of the believing woman from head to toe!
Case 3 of Wine prohibition~
In the Quran, wine is called Khamr and is mentioned explicitly in the following FIVE verses only:
Al Baqara 2: 219"They ask thee concerning wine [khamri] and gambling. Say: "In them is great sin [ithmou] and some profit [manfa'] for men; but the sin [ithumouhuma] is greater than the profit [naf'ihima]."
In no way is this verse a clear and uncompromising edict on the two personal practices of drinking alcohol and gambling.
I would like to point out that the adjectives used above to describe the usefulness or harm of drinking intoxicants and of gambling are in the form of admonitions, advice, and not as direct and unambiguous commands or prohibitions to desist from either of them.
Moreover, it does not make sense to use the adjective Sin which is a moral concept in contradistinction to Profit which is an economic concept. In fact, the Arabic word Manfa' should have been translated to Benefit and not Profit and the opposite should have been Harm instead of Sin.
Nowhere in the Quran is the word HARAM (Prohibited) associated with the drinking of wine nor is there any punishment for being intoxicated.
The punishment of 80 lashes was mandated by the later followers of Muhammad from his Sunna, which represents a man made ruling and not one from Allah.
Yet once more, Sunna over rules Quran, if not equal to it.
Al Nissaa 4: 43 "O ye who believe! approach not prayers with a mind befogged [sukara] until ye can understand all what you say nor in a state of ceremonial impurity.."
The word sukara means intoxicated. The verse does not prohibit the drinking of wine. It is only pointing out to the believers that they should not attend prayers, while under the influence nor should they attend when unclean.
The Quran advises in this verse against drunkenness during prayers only. This means that Muslims are actually permitted to drink some alcohol in between the times of prayers, though the number of prayers per day would limit drunkenness. However, this further implies that after the nighttime prayer, the final one,Muslims can even get drunk.
Al Maida 5: 90 "O ye who believe! Wine [khamru] and gambling stones and (divination by) arrows are an abomination of Satan's handiwork: eschew such (abomination) that ye may prosper.
91Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants [Khamri] and gambling and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?
Yet once again, abomination means detestation or repugnance and the verb used is 'eschew' meaning 'avoid' which is a warning and not an outright prohibition (haram).
Al Nahhl 16: 67 " And from the fruit of the date-palm and the vine ye get wholesome drink [Sakara] and food:
So called Believers and Unbelieving Kuffar, in the whole of the Quran, there are only FIVE instances where in the word KHAMR is used explicitly and only in Al Baqara 2:219 is it frowned upon but NOT PROHIBITED.
Once again Muhammad's Sunna supercedes the Quran.
As I had conclusively revealed in several of my chapters, every single letter, word, aya/verse and sura/chapter in the Quran, are actually the product of the secretions of Muhammad's mind, representing his Alter Ego, his Autobiography, but cleverly projected into the unsuspecting mouth of Allah, to give them the aura of sanctity and divinity.
Allah, Satan and Gabriel are most certainly the multiple voices of the ventriloquist Muhammad.
Case 4 of Painting and Sculpting~
Ladies and gentlemen, please be aware that the words Picture, Painting, Sculpture or Sculpting, do not exist in the Quran but are repeatedly mentioned in the Hadiths or Traditions.
Muhammad Plagiarized, Pirated, Plundered and or Perverted these concepts and ideas - and many more - from the Torah of the Jews as in the following, and incorporated them in his Sunna but not the Quran:
Exodus 20:2 "I am the Lord your God…3. You shall have no other gods before me 4. You shall not make for you any engraved image…5. You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them…"
Leviticus 26:1 "You shall make no idols nor graven image, nor erect a pillar, nor shall you set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the Lord your God"
God's commands are crystal clear that they FORBID the Israelites from creating images or statues to which they bow down in veneration because this would be idolatry.
As long as they do not venerate their own creations, these commands do not forbid the Israelites from actually painting and or sculpting any form they chose to for decorations and art.
It was the rabbis of the Jews who put up rules and regulations forbidding the Jews from painting and or sculpting any forms of humans and animals. Here again, were Man Made rules imposed upon the believers.
Muhammad - the consummate pirate of the desert - plundered these rules from Jewish traditions not knowing they are NOT forbidden by God.
Sahih Al-Bukhari 8.246 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam in His picture, sixty cubits in height (about 30 meters). …"
The all knowledgeable Muhammad, the supreme genius of Muhammadan Islam asserts that Adam was at least 90 feet in height, in the image of Allah. The Muhammadan exegetes - to cover up or explain away such an absurd and impossible height - tell us that later generations of his descendants became shorter and shorter until they arrived to the current height.
If this were true, one would expect to find thousands of remains of gigantic people. These remains would not only be of skeletons, but should also include tools they used, weapons, art work, remains of buildings, etc. Furthermore, these findings should show a definite dif-ference in size of people living let us say 7,000 BC; 3,000 BC, and 1,000 AD.
Since there must have been many such people, archaeologists should have had no problem finding plenty of remains of people that were 80 feet, 60 feet, 40 feet and 20 feet tall. Where are they? Are there any such findings at all?
As far as I know, there is not a single archaeological or biological support for Muhammad's teaching about the changing height of human beings over recorded history. Unerringly, Muhammad - the all knowing prophet of Islam - was as usual wrong on all counts.
Sunan Abu-Dawood 227Narrated by Ali ibn Abu Talib
Muhammad said: "Angels do not enter the house where there is a picture, a dog or a person who is sexually defiled"
As I mentioned before, these ideas do not appear in the Quran. Most of the following stories exist only in the Traditions.
Sahih Al-Bukhari 5.235 Narrated by Aisha
Muhammad said to Aisha (his child bride), "You have been shown to me twice in my dream. I saw you pictured on a piece of silk and someone said (to me). 'This is your wife.'
When I uncovered the picture, I saw that it was yours. I said, 'If this is from Allah, it will be done."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 6182Narrated by Aisha
Gabriel brought a picture of her (Aisha) on a piece of green silk to Allah's Messenger and said, "This is your wife in this world and the next."
Muhammad always had all the superior rules only for himself. He who condemned pictures, saw his would be child bride on a piece of silk without associating it with Satan.
Sahih Al-Bukhari 4.570 Narrated by Ibn Abbas
The Prophet entered the Ka'ba and found in it the pictures of Abraham and Mary. On that he said' "What is the matter with the Quraish? Have they not heard that angels do not enter a house in which there are pictures?…
This is a monstrous and obvious lie and deception since Muhammad prayed in the Ka'ba most of his adult life without once mentioning any pictures in it either in his Quran or in the earlier Hadiths until this instant.
How is it conceivable that he did not notice these pictures before?
In fact Muhammad, the alleged believer in the One and Only Allah, prayed all his adult life in the Ka'ba with the polytheists while it was a house of idolatry harbouring 360 stone gods and goddesses.
Case 5 of Music, Dancing & Bells~
Please be aware that the words Music, Musical, Sing, Bell, Bells, Dance, Dancing are not mentioned in the Quran, but appear in many Hadiths about his Sunna.
The word singing appears only once in Al Zummar 39: 75.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 5277 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger said: "Angels do not accompany the travelers who have with them a dog or a bell"
Sahih Muslim Hadith 5279 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger said: "The bell is the musical instrument of the Satan"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.2Narrated by Aisha
Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah's Apostle "O Allah's Apostle! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?"
Allah's Apostle replied, "Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all …"
Since the bell according to Muhammad, is the instrument of Satan,it is then no wonder that Muhammad's most difficult revelations were accompanied with the sound of the ringing of bells!
Sahih Al-Bukhari 2.72Narrated by Aisha
Abu Bakr came to my house while two small Ansari girls were singing beside me …. Abu Bakr said protestingly, "Musical instruments of Satan in the house of Allah's Apostle ?"
Sahih Al-Bukhari 7.494B Narrated by Abu Malik Al Ashari
That he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. … Allah will destroy them during the night … "
Once again I have demonstrated how Muhammad's Sunna is Equal to and or superior to the Quran.
This is of course not surprising since BOTH of them were Authored, Composed and Concocted by Muhammad to serve his selfish and depraved purposes.
Case 6 of Poetry, Chess, Gold & Silk~
Although the Quran does NOT prohibit reciting Poetry, playing Chess, Wearing Gold and Silk, nonetheless, all of them are FORBIDDEN to the Male Muhammadan Muslims in the Sunna..
Al Shua'ra 26: 224"And the Poets it is those straying in Evil who follow them.."
Al Anbiyya 21: 5 "Nay" they say he is (but) a poet! Let him then bring us a Sign like the ones that were sent to (prophets) of old!"
Al Saffat 37: 36 "And say: "What! shall we give up our gods for the sake of a Poet possessed?"
Sahih Muslim Hadith 5611 Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri
We were going with Allah's Messenger and as we reached al Arj we met a poet who was reciting a poem. Thereupon Allah's Messenger said: "Catch the Satan, for filling the belly of a person with pus, is better than stuffing his brain with poetry"
Ladies and gentlemen be aware, that Poets supplied the Arabs with their mental and spiritual nourishment since they memorized the ancestry, deeds, glories and achievements of their tribes and passed them on to future generations through their students or disciples to keep the records alive.
Poets were actually the NEWS MEDIA par EXCELLENCE of Arabia. They were LETHAL weapons, since a very capable and articulate poet of a small tribe could elevate it in poems, to levels greater than a much more powerful one.
As far as my research has demonstrated, not a single poet, during the long period of centuries of the so called Jahiliyyah/Days of Ignorance period, that is before Muhammadan Islam, was ever a poet murdered for what he or she recited, unlike what was done by Muhammad and his followers.
By the way, there were more female poets among the Jahiliyah Arabs than during the entirety of 1400 years of Muhammadan Islam. Some of these poets were so FORMIDABLE that Muhammad had at least two of them assassinated because they satirized him.
So called Believers and Unbelieving Kuffar, Muhammad ordered the assassination and slaughter of any Arabian poet who satirised, criticised or demonstrated that Muhammad was actually a Charlatan, a Pirate of the Desert and a Traitor to his people. He had them butchered invariably at night, when utterly unprepared, be they men or women, young or old, free or slave, as amply and very clearly recorded in the Hadiths.
Al Hajj 22: 23 "Allah will admit those who believe.. to Gardens beneath which rivers flow: they shall be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments there will be of silk"
Al Fatir 35: 33 "Gardens of Eternity will they enter: therein will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments there will be of silk"
Sunan Abu-Dawood 422 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet said: "If anyone wants to put a ring of fire on one he loves, let him put a gold ring on him: if anyone wants to put a necklace of fire on one he loves, let him put a gold necklace on him, and if anyone wants to put a bracelet of fire on one he loves let him put a gold bracelet on him."
Sunan Abu-Dawood 4226 Narrated by Asma'
The Prophet said: "Any woman who wears a gold necklace will have a similar one of fire put on her neck on the Day of Resurrection, and any woman who puts a gold earring in her ear will have a similar one of fire put in her ear on the Day of Resurrection"
Sunan Abu-Dawood 4046 Narrated by Ali ibn Abu Talib
The Prophet of Allah took silk and held it in his right hand, and took gold and held it in his left hand and said: "both of these are prohibited to the males of my community"
Sahih Muslim 5612Narrated by Buraydah ibn al-Hasib
Allah's Apostle said: "He who plays chess is like one who dyes his hand with the flesh and blood of swine"
Based upon all the above Muhammadan Muslim sources quoted by Chapter and Verse, we can conclude two items:
A) Muhammad's Sunna, on several important rules and concepts OVER RULES the Quran.
B) It is not anymore a wonder to understand why many of Muhammad's Male followers would rather DIE slaughtering defenceless Unbelieving Kuffar civilians than LIVE such a desolate, joyless and unhappy life.
After all, Muhammad promises them eternal Sexual, Sensual and Carnal pleasures in his WHOREHOUSE version of Paradise being regaled by every single item they were prohibited from in LIFE!
This should not be so strange to those who have read Muhammad's Quran and Sunna, because they contain absolutely no Joy or Happiness but are full to the brim with Hate, War, Pain, Torture, Hell, Damnation, Discrimination, Racism, Unhappiness, Submission, Misery and Stupidity, as I have clearly demonstrated in over 780 unchallengeable chapters on my website of www.inthenameofallah.org and my 300 video/audios on my Blog, that Muhammad's Quran and Sunna -to put it in a nutshell - are Hatemongering, Warmongering, Racist, Misogynist and Vile scriptures and hence utterly UNGODLY!
Ironically, it is BECAUSE his followers abide by Muhammad's twin legacies of his Quran and Sunna that they are precisely such vile, depraved and dissolute characters.
Tabari VIII:182 "The people assembled in Mecca to swear allegiance to the Messenger in submission. He received from them the oath of allegiance to himself, to heed and obey."
*** Hitler too, received the oath of allegiance to himself ONLY ***
Like all 'living' institutions, religion cannot stand still but has to adapt, evolve and change in order to survive.
Since the Quran and the Hadiths instruct his MALE followers to emulate Muhammad's deeds, behaviour and thought, as the ultimate manifestation of the PERFECT MAN, Muhammadan 'Islam' is NOT a RELIGION but definitely the CULT of Muhammad
As a Cult, it remains and will continue to remain, stuck in the TIME WARP of Muhammad's 7th Century Arabia.
