This post is intended for the education of those who seek the Truth — no matter what that Truth may be. It is wholly unsuited for those who seek to believe in lies.
There are many voices in our government and media telling us that Islam is peaceful and has nothing to do with violence or terrorism. Well, rather than take their word for it, or the word of anyone else — including me — why not look to see what Muhammad actually said about Islam’s connection to terrorism? Here are justa few of the things Muhammad had to say on the matter:
note: passages in red are from the Qur’an; those in black are from the Sunnah (customs and sayings of Muhammad), the second holiest book in Islam and absolutely necessary to make a religion out of the Qur’an.
“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been made victorious with terror.'”
“I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”
“If you gain mastery over them in battle, inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them, so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.”
“It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughter in the land.”
“Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.'”
“Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.”
“Truly, if the Hypocrites [those who only pretend to be Muslims but do not obey Muhammad’s commands] stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbors for any length of time. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy – a fierce slaughter – murdered, a horrible murdering.”
Tabari VII:20; Ishaq:288
“The Quraysh said, ‘Muhammad and his Companions have violated the sacred month, shed blood, seized property, and taken men captive.’ The polytheists spread lying slander concerning him, saying, ‘Muhammad claims that he is following obedience to Allah, yet he is the first to violate the holy month and to kill our people.'”
“When the Qur’an:passage concerning this matter was revealed, and Allah relieved Muslims from their fear and anxiety, Muhammad took possession of the caravan and prisoners. The Quraysh sent him a ransom and the Prophet released the prisoners on payment. When the Qur’an:authorization came down to Muhammad, Abd Allah and his Companions were relieved and they became anxious for an additional reward. They said, ‘Will this raid be counted as part of the reward promised to Muslim combatants?’ So Allah sent down this Qur’an: ‘Those who believe and have fought in Allah’s Cause may receive Allah’s mercy.’ Allah made the booty permissible. He divided the loot, awarding four-fifths to the men He had allowed to take it. He gave one-fifth to His Apostle.”
“It was so criminal, men could hardly imagine it. Muhammad was ennobled because of the bloody fighting. I swear we shall never lack soldiers, nor army leaders. Driving before us infidels until we subdue them with a halter above their noses and a branding iron. We will drive them to the ends of the earth. We will pursue them on horse and on foot. We will never deviate from fighting in our cause. We will bring upon the infidels the fate of the Ad and Jurhum. Any people that disobey Muhammad will pay for it. If you do not surrender to Islam, then you will live to regret it. You will be shamed in Hell, forced to wear a garment of molten pitch forever!”
“Muslims, if you listen to the unbelievers you will retreat from the enemy and become losers. Ask Allah for victory and do not retreat, withdrawing from His religion. ‘We will terrorize those who disbelieve. In that way I will help you against them.'”
I could post pages of such commands from the Qur’an and records of Muhammad’s example to prove that Muhammad actually boasted that he was successful in spreading Islam through the use of terror, but if these passages are not enough, then pages more won’t be either. Truth seekers will already be convinced by now, and those who aren’t… Well, they never will be because the Truth is not in them — only darkness.
Glenn Beck is correct about this issue: those who insist that Muhammad and Islam have nothing to do with terrorism are making a Monty Python skit of the most dangerous foe the West and even the world has ever faced!
