Lets listen to what Muslims say. (Part 2)

What is the ultimate goal of Islam according to or written in Koran and Hadiths? 1. Is it the world wide domination of Islam by any means? 2. Is it that every life on this planet earth has to be converted to Islam by any means? It is obvious that second question implies the first one.

People or readers might take offence to these aggressively put questions and might even slander me for a moment or for some time depending on who you are. Before I go further I want to expand the first question and put it properly in tune with wordings of Koran.

Does Islam make an obligation on its followers to strive to make Sharia law (Muslims say this is God’s law as it is based on Koran and Sunna) supreme in every nation, thus on the entire land mass, by any means including violence, lies or deception? We get a partial answer to this in the first part I wrote in the form of views expressed by Brigadier Malik and Allah Brohi. I called it a partial answer because they were only two and it is unfair to generalize their views to entire philosophy of Islam.

Before I move on to Holy Koran and its contents, let’s see what other Muslims say on their belief system. Muslims I am going to cite come from all walks of life.

1. Professor Majid Khadduri – He was born in Mosul, Iraq in 1909. He received his BA from American University of Beirut in 1932 and later PhD in International and Political Science in 1938. He later worked in various universities in US and was the founder of Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies Middle East Studies Program. He died in the year 2007.

In 1955 book written by him was published and its title is War and Peace in the Law of Islam. Let’s look at excerpts from this book:

"The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God's law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world. It refused to recognize the coexistence of non-Muslim communities, except perhaps as subordinate entities, because by its very nature a universal state tolerates the existence of no other state than itself. Although it was not a consciously formulated policy, Muhammad's early successors, after Islam became supreme in Arabia, were determined to embark on a ceaseless war of conquest in the name of Islam. The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state." (P. 51)

“The Jihad, reflecting the normal war relations between Arabs and non-Muslims…was a product of a warlike people…Islam could not abolish the warlike character of the Arabs who were constantly at war with each other…institutionalizing war as part of the Muslim legal system…transforming war into a holy war, ceaselessly declared against those who failed to become Muslims…The short intervals which are not war, are peace" (pp. 53-4).

“The importance of the Jihad lay in shifting the focus of attention of the tribes from their intertribal warfare to the outside world…The world…was sharply divided in Muslim law into the abode of Islam and the abode of war… The abode of Islam was always, in theory, at war with the abode of war” (p. 62, p. 52).

Thus the jihad may be regarded as Islam's instrument or carrying out its ultimate objective by turning all people into believers, if not in the prophet hood of Muhammad (as in the case of the dhimmis), at least in the belief in God. The Prophet Muhammad is reported to have declared "some of my people will continue to fight victoriously for the sake of the truth until the last one of them will combat the anti-Christ." Until that moment is reached the jihad, in one form or another, will remain as a permanent obligation upon the entire Muslim community. It follows that the existence of a dar al-harb is ultimately outlawed under the Islamic jural order; that the dar al-Islam is permanently under jihad obligation until the dar al-harb is reduced to non-existence; and that any community which prefers to remain non-Islamic -- in the status of a tolerated religious community accepting certain disabilities -- must submit to Islamic rule and reside in the dar al-Islam or be bound as clients to the Muslim community”. (Page 64)

“Throughout the history of Islam, fighting between Muslim rulers and contending [Muslim domestic] parties was as continuous as between Islam and external enemies…This state of affairs accentuated the struggle for power and created instability and anarchy in the world of Islam” (p. 69).

“The Jihad may be stated as a doctrine of a permanent state of war, not a continuous fighting…The concept of Jihad underwent certain changes. These changes did not imply abandonment of the Jihad duty, it only meant the entry of the obligation into a period of suspension – it assumed a dormant status, from which the [leader] may revive it at any time he deems necessary…No [permanent] compromise is permitted with those who fail to believe in God. They have either to accept Islam or fight” (pp. 64-75)

“If a catastrophe had befallen the Muslims, [they] might come to terms with the enemy… on the grounds of force majeur, provided that the Muslims should resume the Jihad after the expiration of the treaty…Defeated Muslims always maintained that their battle with the enemy would be resumed, however long they had to wait for the second round”. (pp. 154-6)

“The Prophet Muhammad has set the classic example by concluding a [628 A.D.] treaty with the Meccans, known as the Hudaibiya Treaty…as a model for subsequent treaties…A peace treaty with the enemy is a valid instrument if it serves Muslim interests…The Prophet and his successors, however, always reserved their right to repudiate any treaty or arrangement which they considered as harmful to Islam…The Hudaibiya Treaty established the precedent that Muslim authorities might come to terms with [the enemy], provided it was only for a temporary period…A temporary peace with the enemy is not inconsistent with Islam’s interests”. (pp. 203-12)

Treaties must be of temporary duration, for in Muslim legal theory the normal relations between Muslim and non-Muslim territories are not peaceful, but warlike…If the [leader] entered a treaty which he was incapable of fulfilling, the treaty was regarded as void (batil). He was permitted to declare its termination “.(pp. 220-1)

The Muslim states, however, are quite aware that at the present it is not possible to revive the traditional religious approach to foreign affairs, nor is it in their interests to do so, as the circumstances permitting the association of religion in the relations among nations have radically changed....the jihad [has] become an obsolete weapon...Islam has at last accepted, after a long period of tension and friction with Christendom, its integration into a world order which, although originating in western Europe, now tends to encompass the entire world”. (Pages 295-296)

How did he arrive at all these things and views? Out of thin air? Was he also an extremist? He was recipient of many awards in American universities. You can read on this from Again this book was published in the year1955 much before this arrival of Islamism and Islamic extremism on Globe.

Let’s look at some more of this kind.

2. Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee (From Pakistan) – He is an assistant professor on the faculty of Sharia law of the International Islamic University in Islamabad. In his 1994 book ‘The Methodology of Ijtihad’, he quotes the twelfth century Maliki jurist Ibn Rushd: "Muslim jurists agreed that the purpose of fighting with the People of the one of two things: it is either their conversion to Islam or the payment of jizya." Nyazee concludes: "This leaves no doubt that the primary goal of the Muslim community, in the eyes of its jurists, is to spread the word of Allah through jihad, and the option of poll-tax [jizya] is to be exercised only after subjugation" of non-Muslims.

3. One more, this time it is from President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This is what he said “Have no doubt... Allah willing, Islam will conquer what? It will conquer all the mountain tops of the world.”

4. There are many Islamic Organizations in USA; one such is CAIR (Council for America Islamic Relations). Certain sections of American main stream media mention this one as representing moderate Islam and whenever some journalists want to know the views of Muslims on a certain incident; they immediately go to this organization. Recently it was found that it is nothing but a front for Hamas (a Terrorist organization) and extension of Muslim Brotherhood. Lest see what some important people in this moderate organization have to say.

Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesman says this in 1993 in Minneapolis Star Tribune, "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future," Hooper told the Star Tribune. "But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education”. To read the full story click here.

CAIR President Omar Ahmad in 1988 says this, “Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth." To read the full story click here.

In fact this created a controversy and as news paper stood by its story Muslims in US confronted Omar Ahmad. To read complete story click here. This must be read by every one.

5. Muammar Gaddafi – “We have 50 million Muslims in Europe. There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe—without swords, without guns, without conquest—will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.” Click here to read the complete news.

In another instance he said “There are serious mistakes, among them the one saying that Jesus came as a messenger for other people other than the sons of Israel.… Christianity is not a faith for people in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Other people who are not sons of Israel have nothing to do with that religion.… It is a mistake that another religion exists alongside Islam. There is only one religion which is Islam after Mohammed.”

He continues "All those believers who do not follow Islam are losers; we are here to correct the mistakes in the light of the teachings of the Koran."

Gaddafi also said it was a mistake to believe that Jesus had been crucified and killed. "It is not correct to say that. Another man resembling Jesus was crucified in his place."

Gaddafi, who is seeking to expand his influence in Africa, said his arguments came from the Koran. He led similar prayers last year in Mali. Click here for full report by Reuters.

Who are these people and do all of them misunderstood Islam and are misquoting and misinterpreting Koran? Gaddafi says his arguments came from the Koran it self. Yet moderates wanted us to believe that they get these ideas out of thin air not from sayings and teachings of Koran and Sunna. And in fact what we (infidels) believe does not matter; it is important what our politicians and editors (and journalists) of news papers believe. People who matter in our society out of the complicity with extremists for various political reasons or political correctness or ignorance simply find that it is expedient to lie rather than tell the truth about or even criticize any thing related to Muslims or Islam. But this reality and ever growing menace of Islamism in various forms behooves that some of our politicians stop stooping to Islamic extremists and Islamic organizations ever masquerading them selves as peaceful and moderate (here I am referring to Chidambaram attending a gathering of Deobandi sect).

Now lets see some more Muslims and what they said on Islam’s ambition and Islam’s views on Non Muslims. These people are referred to as radicals, militants and terrorists in the main stream media and according to our knowledgeable commentators, intellectuals and Muslim apologists these people are misguided and are following twisted and distorted Islam and these people are only a tiny proportion of Muslim community. They wanted us to believe that these so called terrorists, who use latest technology and invent novel ways to carry out their attacks, are not capable of reading the peaceful and tolerant message in Koran?

Unfortunately no one bothers to ask these enlightened peace makers what is real Islam and what is twisted and distorted Islam.  Actually it is these people, so called terrorists and extremists, who knew and understand what Koran and Sunna say regarding the Jihad, Global domination and subjugation of Non Muslims. This doesn’t mean that other Muslims are completely ignorant and innocent of Islam’s ultimate ambition. Let’s see what these misinterpreters say on Islam and its view with respect others.

6. Abdul Nacer Benbrika, also known as Abu Bakr. He is an Imam in a mosque in Melbourne, Australia. This pious Muslim has the following to say on Islam in a message to The 7:30 Report, a news program:

"According to my religion, here, I don't accept all other religion except the religion of Islam."

"I am telling you that my religion doesn't tolerate other religion. It doesn't tolerate. The only one law which needs to spread, it can be here or anywhere else, has to be Islam."

7. Abu Hamza Al Masri (born in1958) an Egyptian, now currently serving prison term in UK. Some of his sermons in mosques, according to many reports, are: (to read the actual reports click here and here.)

"Killing of the Kaffir for any reason you can say it is OK, even if there is no reason for it." He called on his followers to poison, ambush and kill non-believers and added: "You must have a stand with your heart, with your tongue, with your money, with your hand, with your sword, with your Kalashnikov. Don't ask shall I do this, just do it."

"It is a time to prove that you are not just here in the West for the honey pot, just to take and not to give anything." Later he said: "When you fight, you kill, you don't fight just to negotiate or to show off."

He said they would eventually see "The Khalifa sitting in the White House, ruling from there like the Prophet Mohammed said that Allah … told him that the whole earth, it will be for Muslims, booty for Islam. This is a promise from Allah."

"Make sure that the person who gave him the licence for that wine shop doesn't exist any more on the Earth. Finish him up. Give him Dawa (inviting non-Muslims to accept the truth of Islam). If he doesn't respect Dawa, kill him. "You have to understand that Dawa is good but it doesn't survive alone.

8. Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammad. Another preacher, born in 1958, in Syria and later when he visited Syria UK Govt. told him that he is no longer welcome in UK. His reaction to London suicide bombings is this:
"We  don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity."

9. Anjem Chowdary, born and raised in UK, started as a lawyer and then he became a Imam, considers that only Muslims are innocents and Non Muslims are not innocents because they rejected Islam and they are legitimate targets. Where did he say this? Not in a secret gathering in a Mosque but in Hard Talk, BBC Program. You can read transcript of that interview here.

And then in another interview with CBN news he says that Islam is not a religion of peace, Islam means submission not peace. At least for once we have a Muslim who is telling the actual meaning of Islam.

In another interview with Christiana Amanpour for CNN says that Sharia law will be implemented in UK one day, it is only a matter of time, either peacefully or through Mujahideen conquering UK.

10. Osama Bin Laden and he needs no introduction. Lets look at what he has to offer on the religion of peace.

In an interview with Jonathan Miller he said ““I am one of the servants of Allah. We do our duty of fighting for the sake of the religion of Allah. It is also our duty to send a call to all the people of the world to enjoy this great light and to embrace Islam and experience the happiness in Islam. Our primary mission is nothing but the furthering of this religion. ...”

In another interview, this time with a Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir, He said “Yes! We are carrying on the mission of our Prophet, Muhammad. The mission is to spread the word of God, not to indulge [in] massacring people.”

What ever be the means, peaceful or violent, the ultimate goal of Islam is to dominate the world and to establish sharia law  in place of man made constitutions according to both peaceful Muslims and radical Muslims. 

Actually there is neither radical Islam nor militant Islam, there is just Islam. These extraneous words like radicals, militants and extremists were invented by media and politicians either by their ignorance or unwillingness to fool the masses.

Here we all have to agree that Main stream media is the biggest culprit. It is apparent that it has no interest in covering and investigating news and stories that shed an unfavorable side of Islam and Muslims, it may be due to many reasons like fear of Muslim mob violence, facing law suits, fear and shame of being mentioned or branded as forces of Hindutva and desire to present themselves as liberal. But this is not honest journalism, lacks integrity and some times it is coward-ism. These media people pose as if they knew about Islam more than Imams of mosques.
