Two Contrasting Opinions

It has been over 30 years since Iran grabbed our U.S. Embassy In Tehran, November 4, 1979 - An Act of War!

In all of that time the world has witnessed thousands of suicide bombs from Mumbai, India to Madrid, to London and New York City, plus the bombings in African Embassies, plus beheadings, also the ugly stonings of young Muslim women, the "honor-killings, the mutilations of captives in diverse times and places. See: Qura'n 5:33..Grim stuff!

What's this carnage of innocents about? Most will agree that it's a "holy war", a Muslim Jihad, creating terror. Allah's Apostle Muhammad said, "I have been made victorious with terror." Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 52, #220

Moderate Muslims Disagree.

Recently we took a simple question, the single word "mujahada" to two authoritative sources, for a concise definition.

The Islamic scholar, Nuh Ha Mim Keller, who translated the classic book on Shari'a Law, "Reliance of The Traveler." The book states in Section 09.0 "Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and it is derived from the word "mujahada", signifying warfare to establish the religion."

There we have it, from a well-known authority.

The opposing view is offered by Mohamed on his "Understanding Islam" blog. {See Snake Hunter Links}

Mohamed Fadly sez, "Jihad doesn't mean to war against non-Muslims. Jihad means struggle, to make all efforts."

We report, you decide.* - reb _ _ _ *(Comment at bottom of Post.)

A Brief Comment On This Post.

The Qur'an teaches that "war is deceit" and this passage should serve as a warning to be alert and aware. War has two sides, one is bloody, the other is an ideological battle ground. Islam's holy book is filled with passages of "peace, love and toleration" for the unwary soul, ever- searching for a mythical paradise.

Other parts of that "Holy Book" contain violent & ugly passages that require careful research; the curious person will find many vague promises of eternal blessings in the 'Hereafter' - It's always best to look at both sides of that coin...the obverse bright, the reverse dark & stained with innocent blood.
>>
'Once A Muslim, Forever A Muslim' is the rule. The potential Convert, especially the American woman, that foolishly accepts a Muslim husband will soon learn that she has unwittingly abandoned her birthright to free will; both she and any off-spring are now considered the man's legal "property", and subject to Shari'a Law, where disobedience will be rewarded with abject humiliation and/or public whippings, and Apostasy is often subject to the death penalty!

Caveat Emptor - Let the Buyer Beware.

we will never win the war on terror with a Mussslim in the WH!..great work..KEEP UP THE FIGHT!!!

Maggie Thornton said...

Yes, jihad means struggle. That is the struggle to remove infidels from the face of the earth, beginning with Jews. Jihad means the struggle to dominate.

Megan.Clinton said...

I agree with Maggie.. jihad does mean struggle. It's the muslims' struggle to maintain faith and to spread the faith. It is dangerous to attempt to parallel Islam with Christianity but the way I see it, jihad is to Islam as witnessing to nonbelievers is to Christianity. Or that's what I believe jihad is SUPPOSED to mean. It has now evolved in a more negatively connatated word meaning a holy war. I know only the very basics of Islam, just expressing a small opinion..

Thank you, Megan.

For useful information on Islam's 1400 yr 'Continuum Of War' and an accurate perspective of the muslim
mind-set, read Mohammad's own words: Allah's Apostle sez, "I have become victorious with terror."
Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 52, 220
