Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 2676Narrated byAbdullah ibn Abbas
When the children of a woman (in pre-Islamic days) did not survive, she took a vow on herself that if her child survives, she would convert it a Jew. When Banu an-Nadir were expelled (from Arabia), there were some children of the Ansar (Helpers) among them. They said: We shall not leave our children. So Allah the Exalted revealed:
2:256 Let there be no compulsion in religion.Truth stands out clear from error; whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things
#Compulsion is incompatible with religion; because 1) religion depends upon faith and will, and these would be meaningless if induced by force; 2) Truth and Error have been so clearly shown up by the mercy of God that there should be no doubt in the minds of any persons of goodwill as to the fundamentals of faith; 3) God's protection is continuous and His Plan is always to lead us from the depths of darkness into the clearest light)#
*** Unfortunately, this precept - like most of the others in Muhammadan Islam - was rarely followed by Muhammad or his followers.
This verse was ABROGATED by sveral other verses that were 'revealed' in Madina.
The Muhammadan Muslims conquered a large portion of the world with the sword in the name of Allah, from the Atlantic to China.
Their historians admit to these forced conversions. After all, Muhammad's wars against the Jews,Christians and Pagans of Arabia were continued by his Khulafa' who forced their conversion, destruction or expulsion from the Arabian Peninsula, their homeland.
During the first one hundred years of their onslaughts, the conquering Arabs forced into conversion tens of millions
of peoples ***
3: 20So if they dispute with thee say: "I have submitted my whole self to Allah and so have those who follow me." And say to the people of the Book and to those who are unlearned: "Do ye (also) submit yourselves?" If they do they are in right guidance but if they turn back thy duty is to convey the Message; and in Allah's sight are (all) His servants.
*** Muhammad and his followers were only to CONVEY the message and not to RAM it and FORCE it upon HUMANITY ***
10: 99If it had been the Lord's Will, they would all have believed. All who are on earth!Wilt thou compel mankind, against their will, to believe?
100 No soul can believe except by the will of Allah. And He will place doubt on those who will not understand.
*** Muhammad begged the above question and did exactly that:
Having lost the dialogue and theological arguments with his tribe and theJudaized Arabs,he went on a blood letting rampage to force humanity to believe in AllahAND in himself as his messenger.
What he could not achieve by peaceful means, he did by terror, war, death, destruction, conquest, enslavement and humiliation of all so called
The greatest absurdities in the Quran are the verses which condemn any human being for not believing in the One and Only Allah, the same who made them 'UNBELIEVERS' in the first place ***
10:100 No soul can believe except by the Will of Allah and He will place Doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand.
*** It is Allah Who ordains whether or not one of his human creatures(slaves) can believe or not and it is also Allah who places obstacles and doubt into the faculties of such humans and then punishes them for being evil.
So, where is FREE WILL?
This verse contradicts and ABROGATES10:108 ***
10: 107If Allah do touch thee with hurt there is none can remove it but He: if He do design some benefit for thee there is none can keep back His favor: He causeth it to reach whomsoever of His servants He pleaseth. And He is the Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
*** Yet again, the Quran asserts Allah'sPRE-DESTINATION of humanity in this verse and ABROGATES it immediately in the next ***
108Say: "O ye men! now Truth hath reached you from your Lord! Those who receive guidance do so for the good of their own souls; those who stray do so to their own loss:and I am not (set) over you to arrange your affairs."
43: 88 (Allah has knowledge) of the (Prophet's) cry "O my Lord! truly these are a people who will not believe!" 89But turn away from them and say "Peace!" but soon shall they know!
50: 45 We know best what they say; and thou art not one to overawe[compel] them by force. So admonish with the Qur'an such as fear My Warning!
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.80Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Verse: "You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind," means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 9.77Narrated byAbu Huraira
While we were in the mosque, Allah's Apostle came out to us and said, "Let us proceed to the Jews."
So we went along with him till we reached Bait-al-Midras (a place where the Torah used to be recited and all the Jews of the town used to gather).
The Prophet stood up and addressed them, "O Assembly of Jews! Embrace Islam and you will be safe!"
The Jews replied, "O Aba-l-Qasim! You have conveyed Allah's message to us."
The Prophet said, "That is what I want (from you)."
He repeated his first statement for the second time, and they said,
"You have conveyed Allah's message, O Aba-l-Qasim."
Then he said it for the third time and added, "You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to exile you from this land, so whoever among you owns some property, can sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle." (See Hadith No. 392, Vol. 4)
*** Muhammad, as usual, broke most of the decent, conciliatory , practical and pragmatic rules in the Quran that were 'revealed' in Mecca,and preferred the use of terror, force, war and slaughter to achieve his personal aims by 'revealing' new ABROGATINGverses in Madina ***
Muhammadan law makes provision for persons acting under compulsion, when the person who compels has it in his power to execute orders, he be king or a thief. (Hidayah, vol. iii. p. 452.)E.g. a person forced into a contract may dissolve it.
A Muhammadan may lawfully eat food which is prohibited if he be compelled to do so, being threatened with loss of life or limb. Nor is a Muhammadan guilty of sin who declares himself an unbeliever when the loss of a limb or of life is threatened.
According to the Imam Abu Hanifah, if a Muhammadan be compelled to divorce his wife, the divorce is valid; but with him the other three Imams are not agreed to this ruling.
*** It is important to note that Muhammad made it extremely easy for his followers not to subject themselves to martyrdom especially under threat to life or limb by allowing them to deceive and pretend to survive the greater force, unlike martyrdom in the traditions of the Jews and Christians who would suffer and rather die for their beliefs and not recant or apostacise under torture and or threat to life and limb.
His method was and is the way of the deceiver and the coward ***
