Where Are The Rest?

I have often griped about the lack of Muslims standing up against the 'extreminst' behavior that some of their faith take part in.

Well I have truly found one.

I've mentioned him before, and you probably noticed him on the blogroll.

This is a great post from E Mullah, and E_M, I gotta think you are taking a lot of heat for this!

Recently, I am overwhelmed by Muslim spammers who are urging other Muslims through repeated emails to protest and boycott Danish products in response to publishing of cartoons. I have few questions for them and I urge you to send these questions in email to as many Muslims as possible---that you know of---so that they become more introspective. Ask them to find the answer to the following:

I. Recently, in Middle East Muslims destroyed Danish food and threw away food in streets. I ask following questions:

  • Question 1. Did prophet of Islam recommended this behavior?
  • Question 2. Do Muslims know how much Allah despise when we spoil the Rizaq (food) ?
  • Question 3. Does Islam recommend Muslims to spoil food when Allah (SBWH) asks in Quran: Who has made it Haram for you that I have made Halal?
II. Doctors in Pakistan are not going to prescribe life saving Danish medicines even in case there is no alternative because they consider it Haram to prescribe these medicines in love of prophet.

  • Question 4. Isn't it that Allah has recommended us to consider Haram as Halal when it comes to saving lives (I don't even consider Danish medicines Haram)?
  • Question 5. Is it ok to punish those who are not involved in offending Muslims sensibilities (Although, prophet choose not to punish and that is my guiding light).
III. Muslims have destroyed property of fellow Muslims in Pakistan as well as in other countries.

  • Question 6. Didn't prophet say that you cannot be among the best Muslims if other Muslims are not safe from your hand, arm, and mouth?

(If Islam=Peace then I must say that everyone must be safe from the hands, arms, and mouth of Muslims) .

  • "He never returned an insult with an insult."
Alhamdollilah! I am Muslims and I am proud that my religion teaches me only peace, forgiveness, and justice the way Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was committed to it. I am not ashamed of Islam but of radical Muslims who do not understand the message of peace in our religion and still claim that "Islam is a religion of peace."

May Allah help every Muslim to understand the message of Salama (peace).

I am inspired by the courage it must have taken to post such a thing.

Some Muslims might not like that so much.

I had the idea on this blog of taking quotes straight from the Koran to show Islams violent side.

I have done that and will continue to do so.

As I can tell, the same Muslims that would no sooner see us infidels disappear, take their inspiration from the Koran.

But I must admit, I like E Mullah's approach.

His truly is a Religion of Peace.

It will take a while before we see changing hearts. I have been experiencing that and many Muslims agreed with me and one of them quoted a verse from Quran

[4:140] He has instructed you in the scripture that: if you hear GOD's revelations being mocked and ridiculed, you shall not sit with them, unless they delve into another subject, Otherwise, you will be as guilty as they are. GOD will gather the hypocrites and the disbelievers together in Hell (please read my entire comment on this last portion of the verse before frowning).

So in short the above verse from Quran says that Muslims should just stay away from those who mock their religion and that is all. Demanding killing, punishment, burning embassies, or boycotting everyone is totally ridiculous and cannot be proven from Quran. Now many people from other religions may get frowned by reading the last portion of the verse but as a Muslim I can tell you that it is not a Muslims job to decide who is a believer or not. If God is saying that then let him decide who is a disbeliever. We know the Messiah and prostitute story. People wanted to kill her but Jesus (name is Messieh or Isa in Islamic texts) protected her because he said people should not judge people's faith because everyone is a sinner. So when it comes to question of faith then leave it to God because if He has created hell then it is his job to decide who is going there not mine and yours.

Many Westrens have been apealing for peace and Muslims must listen to this from Quran

[8:61] If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in GOD. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

Dear JMJ
Thanks for your comments on my Blog. The author of the article is very brave indeed. He is taking a challenge to educate Muslims and we need more and more people who break the Mullah hierarchy. I will appreciate if you send me the actual link to the article. People have been asking me in response to my Six Questions what should they do. In fact one has given me a detailed response that supports my belief and it has grown stronger because I am witnessing good coming out in response to my questions. Allah knows but it is true that I have been able to change many hearts and quell animosity. I believe you are a good and believing soul and all your friends who want to do good are brave souls.

The Islamic tradition’s main source is Quran. The orthodox Muslims are in fact not following the tradition of GOD. You have been asking me why violent Muslims believe that GOD is instructing them to do what they are doing. But the truth is that GOD is instructing them in Quran to spread peace but why they are not following Quran as far as the message of peace is concerned.

Al Quran [25:30] The messenger said, "My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran."

Those Muslims who believe that people of other faiths are disbelievers they should check following verses from Quran.

AL-Quran [2:62] Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who (1) believes in GOD, and (2) believes in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

AL-Quran [17:53] Tell My servants to treat each other in the best possible manner, for the devil will always try to drive a wedge among them. Surely, the devil is man's most ardent enemy. (GOD does not say that only Muslims are true servants of the Lord).

AL-Quran [60:8] GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable. (GOD does say that we should live in peace as friends).

As I said earlier that Quranic text does not prove that Muslims should kill the blasphemous beings. For those Muslims who want to punish the cartoonist I have this

Al-Quran [16:126] And if you punish, you shall inflict an equivalent punishment.

Finally, I know the cartoon you have talked about posted by your friend is repulsive and I even know that it is very old. I have seen it elsewhere may be two three years ago but my guiding light is this verse in Muslim scripture (Al-Quran).

AL-Quran [28:54] To these we grant twice the reward, because they steadfastly persevere. They counter evil works with good works, and from our provisions to them, they give.

For me your words are enough. < I would not wish to be the artist when my times were to come to meet God! >. And I know one day that rather than making cartoons they have a bigger responsibility. Responsibility to teach good and use their creativity for the peace rather than war.

By the way JMJ I dont have your email I have F2s. I will apprecaite if you can send me yours you can take mine from F2.
