Dissecting the Muslim Mind: The Making of a Zombie

What turns some Muslims into zombies & cold blooded killers unable to think for themselves? Here is an insightful look at how Muslims think!

The human brain is an extremely complex organ. Every person reacts to a given condition in a different way. The way we humans process information depends on many factors. The conditioning of the human mind, anatomically speaking, is a major deciding factor as to how a person will react to a given situation.
However there are a few situations where the reaction to most human beings, unless the person is mentally ill, is almost similar. It is this fact that differentiates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. In this article we shall try to bring out this fact as to how conditioning impairs the ability of most Muslims to react in a way that is different from how a non Muslim would react.

We will use some Hadiths and Suras of the Qur’an in our examples. For the purpose of easy understanding we have taken two subjects namely a Muslim denoted by 'M' and a non-Muslim denoted by 'NM'. We shall now see how they react to these Suras and Hadiths.

On Killing Other Human Beings

Bukhari 7:71:590

Narrated Anas:
The climate of Medina did not suit some people, so the Prophet ordered them to follow his shepherd, i.e. his camels, and drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they followed the shepherd that is the camels and drank their milk and urine till their bodies became healthy. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels. When the news reached the Prophet he sent some people in their pursuit. When they were brought, he cut their hands and feet and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron.

M: Mashallah, how wise the prophet was. There must have been many medicinal qualities in drinking camel urine, and that is why the Prophet asked these people to drink camel urine. I will get my bottle of Camel urine tomorrow to drink as a preventive measure. This must be Sunnah. I am sure modern science will prove the prophet was a genius when it comes to treating disease.

NM: What a barbarian that Muhammad was. Is this is how he wanted to spread peace, by chopping off people’s hands and feet and then branding them as though they were animals.

Killing Anyone who leaves the “Religion of Peace and Forgiveness”

Bukhari 9:84:57

Narrated 'Ikrima:
Some Zanadiqa (heretics) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

M: Allahu Akbar!!! The wretches deserved it. No one has the right to insult the true religion of the one true God……….Allah

NM: So Islam is no better than a Mafia ring; One way only.

Kill anyone who is captured in conflicts and wars

Quran 8:67:

It is not fitting for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. Ye look for the temporal goods of this world; but Allah looketh to the Hereafter: And Allah is Exalted in might, Wise.

M: If Allah is telling the holy prophet to kill captured people, who are we to say “No”

NM: Oh! My God. Is this Quran a slaughter manual? How can God ask his own prophet to kill someone he created? There are rules on how to deal with prisoners of wars. Killing them just because a supposed un“holy” verse tells one to do that is a clear indication that Muhammad is a criminal, and that his Qur’an is not suitable to use even in the bathroom for cleaning body waste (it will serve better for fires during the cold season).


Quran 2.178:

O ye who believe! The law of equality is prescribed to you in cases of murder: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, the woman for the woman. But if any remission is made by the brother of the slain, then grants any reasonable demand, and compensates him with handsome gratitude, this is a concession and a Mercy from your Lord. After this whoever exceeds the limits shall be in grave penalty.

M: Allah preserved equality. Al-hamdulillah

NM: So, a Muslim is of higher status than other people even in a case when a crime is committed. A Muslim is a “cut above” everyone else. How pathetic a logic is this? And even in crimes, slavery is clearly condoned in Islam. How much of an idiot one has to be to believe this nonsense?

Scientific Discoveries of the holy Prophet

Bukhari 7:71:592

Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "There is healing in black cumin for all diseases except death."

M: Alhamdullilah. I will stuff my father mouth with black cumin. I am sure his Cancer will get cured.

NM: Why the hell are we investing in all the Medical research?

Mastery of Medical Procedures

Bukhari 8:82:795

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet cut off the hands and feet of the men belonging to the tribe of 'Uraina and did not cauterize (their bleeding limbs) till they died.

M: Serves them right the bloody Kafirs

NM: I think I am going to throw up.

The genocide of Bani Qurayza (estimates put their numbers between 600 to 900 men).

Here is the story:

During the night, trenches sufficient to contain the dead bodies of the men were dug across the market place of the city. In the morning, Mahomet, himself a spectator of the tragedy, commanded that male captives to be brought forth in companies of five or six at a time. Each company as it came up was made to sit down in a row on the brink of the trench destined for its grave, there beheaded, and the bodies cast therein. … The butchery, begun in the morning, lasted all day, and continued by torchlight till the evening. Having thus drenched the market place with the blood of seven or eight hundred victims, and having given command for the earth to be smoothed over their remains, Mahomet returned from the horrid spectacle to solace himself with the charms of Rihana, whose husband and all her male relatives had just perished in the massacre. [Source: W. Muir, The Life of Muhammad, (Edinburg 1923, Pages 307-8)].

M: Allahu Akabar. The holy prophet knew how to deal with the Jewish criminal tribe.

NM: This is a clear genocide and a grave sin against humanity. If this happened in our days, Muhammad would be hunted down as a mass murderer and evil criminal. He will be put to death once he is caught. The same applies to his evil gang of “Sahaba”. Such a story just makes me sick to my stomach, and mirror evil people like Hitler and KKK staunch advocates. Only an EVIL INCARNATE like Muhammad would do this, and then go sleep with a woman that he had just murdered all her male relatives. He did that with no guilt conscious on his part. Language has no meaning if this man was not EVIL INCARNATE.

Fight Everyone Else

Quran 9:123:

O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him

M: Allah’s word is never wrong. We should not have mercy on anyone else. We will fight everyone else who disagrees with us, and Allah is always with us. We are always right.

NM: Only a dumb beast will fight other people because they happen to believe different.

Befriending Kafirs

Quran 5:51:

O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

M: By Allah, Muslims should stay pure, and never trust the infidel Pigs and Monkeys.

NM: What an awful teaching to tell people not to trust another human being just because he/she has a different religious belief. How can a supposedly “holy book” like the Qur’an teach such idiocies?

Leaving Islam

Quran 4.089:

They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks;-

M: These Murtadeen deserve to be punished both in this world as well as in the hereafter. How can they dare to leave the Religion of Allah. Allah is wise and gracious that is why he was given us the duty of killing the Murtads. Bismillah.

NM: I don’t get this! Why should someone be killed for leaving his religion? Why would a supreme deity be scared if someone leaves Islam. Either way it is my choice whether I choose to be Muslim or anything Else. IF Allah really exists he would never allow a Muslim to leave his religion. Hey! What about predestination, does Allah arrange for everything to go according to his will. What a sick deity!

Punishment for Stealing

Quran 5.38

As to the thief, Male or female, cut off his or her hands: a punishment by way of example, from Allah, for their crime: and Allah is Exalted in power.

M: This is a good punishment. It prevents people from stealing in the future.

NM: How barbaric? Stealing is a clear example where a gradual system of punishment should be in place. The higher the amount stolen, the more prison terms the person may have to serve. Making a handicapped person out of someone who stole, does not serve that person’s future well-being. He won’t be likely to be able to make a decent living in the future. He also will be likely to steal again because he cannot make a decent living to pay his/her future bills. So, cutting of limbs is barbaric, and does not help improve the life of the individual, or improve the society as a whole.

The Religion of Peace Strikes Again in Mumbai

The reason for the violence isn't hard to guess - in fact, it's right there in the Qur'an. The only question is whether we have the courage, brain cells and the insight to examine the "Religion of Peace."

"The attacks in Mumbai, India are the latest in the 1,400 year history of Islam and yet people continue to express surprise that the alleged religion of peace could harbor so many cold-blooded killers of innocent people.

Since 9/11, Muslims have carried out more than 11,000 attacks all in the name of Islam and Muhammad. Americans got a taste of it when 3,000 of their own were mercilessly killed without warning and, I might add, without any better reason than Muhammad’s call to “wage war against such of the infidels as are your neighbors.”

With more than 1.3 billion Muslims in the world, about 21 percent of the world’s population, that’s a lot of neighbors and wherever Muslims are gathered in great numbers or wherever they have immigrated, the demand for unbelievers is always the same, convert or die.

The death toll in Mumbai as of this writing is nearing 130 and the target area, just as with 9/11’s attack on the World Trade Center, is the financial center of India. Islam takes a dim view of capitalism wherever it is practiced, but then Islam takes a dim view of everything that is not Islamic.

To understand Islam is to understand two central factors, its sense of superiority and its certitude. While other religions exercise tolerance for those who do not share their faith, Islam requires that “unbelievers” either convert or be killed.

While not all Muslims seek their neighbor’s blood and many are good and decent people, the single truth about Islam is that its holy book is a call to war. This thought is so frightening that most in the West end up denying the threat it poses to their lives. Terror, however, was a means to secure new adherents from its beginning.

In a new book, “The 9/11 Verses: Terrorist Teachings in the Koran”, author Karl J. Trautwein has painstakingly studied the book that Muslims are taught is the word of Allah and the Haddith a collection of stories about Muhammad’s life that are intended to guide the lives of Muslims. Islam lays down rules for every single aspect of a Muslim’s life and it requires prayer five times a day, always facing Mecca. One can purchase the book from

Muslims often point to the Koran’s verses on tolerance, but Trautwein notes that, “Passages teaching peace and tolerance are believed to come from the early days when Muhammad lived in Mecca. Verses calling for hate and violence are believed to have been revealed in Medina, which was later in his life.” In Medina, after Jewish tribes that lived there refused to accept him as a prophet and convert, Muhammad had between 600 and 900 men killed. Their wives and children were taken as slaves.

Trautwein calls Islam “bi-polar” because it contains two totally opposite beliefs and sets of behavior. The violence that the Koran demands cannot be “misinterpreted” any more than its more peaceful, earlier statements. Even so, the Koran promises great rewards for hunting, harming or killing non-believers. A statistical study of the Koran found that 52.7 percent of the verses are hatred aimed at infidels.

The lesson of 9/11, the attacks in Spain, the United Kingdom, Mumbai, and elsewhere around the world is that neither the West, nor anywhere else can “peace” be achieved with Islam. Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, animists and all others are the legitimate targets for Muslims because they are not Muslims or refuse to submit to Islam.

The 21st century is now challenged by the 7th century and, everywhere, it finds itself bewildered by what appears to be appalling and senseless killing.

It makes perfect sense, however, to those who believe they are practicing Islam as commanded by Muhammad and the Koran.

Ten Muslim "Fundamentalists" Arrested for Acid Attacks on Girls...

Police in southern Afghanistan have arrested 10 men in connection with an acid attack on schoolgirls earlier this month, officials say.
Several girls received severe burns when acid was thrown in their faces on 12 November in Kandahar city.
At least 15 schoolgirls and female teachers had acid sprayed at them by two men on a motorcycle near the Mirwais Nika Girls High School in Kandahar.
Officials say the attackers used a toy gun to spray the acid and fled as soon as people came to the assistance of the girls.
Most of the victims suffered severe burns and at least one of them will have to have her face and neck reconstructed by plastic surgery.
Some of the girls were wearing Islamic burkas or veils which provided them with some protection.
Correspondents say it is likely to have been carried out by those opposed to the education of women.

Islam's war with India .."Continued"

"It emphasized that a Muslim’s first loyalty was to his creed, not his nation; any means of violence could be employed including weapons of mass destruction to achieve political and other aims; and belonging to one Ummah a Muslim could participate in any struggle worldwide where Islam or its believers were being victimized.
With this ideology, drawn from scriptures, a Muslim was freed from the need of having any further organizational guidance from the Front. The result was that many Muslim groups in many parts of the world, started thinking and acting on identical lines. There was an upsurge in fundamentalism and terror worldwide. Later the list of enemies was expanded to India to include Hindus. "
Today, the heightened profile of radical Islam all over the world is giving sleepless nights to many governments including some in the Islamic world. Many of these governments believe that the Islamists will sooner or later be able to lay their hands on a nuclear device, causing mass destruction or disorder somewhere.
The rise of Radical Islam has placed Muslims in a deep predicament in the western countries. While he cannot give up his Islamic identity, he does not quite understand how to manage his other multiple identities created by his citizenship, education and existence in multi-cultural societies.
Secularism and alternate systems of governance are theologically unacceptable in the Muslim scriptures. A reformist Muslim thus, becomes an anathema to Islam. Without reforms, the hard dogmas will continue to rule the Muslim mind and feed the hatred and animosity on which Radical Islam thrives. This amounts to a no-win situation leaving thereafter a class of people with no respect for the laws and the others.
This has caused some to leave the pale of Islam and come out publicly against the contradictions of Islam and its outright rejection of values which are now universal in vast parts of the world."

Michael Jackson Accepts Allah & Pledges Allegiance to Muhammad...

MICHAEL Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel, according to reports.

The singer wore traditional Islamic dress as he pledged his allegiance to the Koran at a friend's home in Los Angeles, The Sun reports.

Jackson, who was raised a Jehovah's Witness, reportedly decided to convert after discussing religion with a music producer and songwriter on his new album - both of whom were converts to Islam.

The Sun reported singer Yousef Islam - formerly knowns as Cat Stevens - turned up to help Jackson celebrate.

Jackson is due to give evidence in court next week after being sued by Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, second son of the King of Bahrain.

Imams Sanction Marital Rape, Domestic Violence and Welfare Fraud...:

Local Muslim clerics accused -

SOME Muslim religious leaders in Victoria are condoning rape within marriage, domestic violence, polygamy, welfare fraud and exploitation of women, according to an explosive report on the training of imams.

The report says some imams apply Sharia (Islamic law) when it benefits men but not when it benefits women, and that they hinder police from pursuing domestic violence charges.

Women seeking divorces have also been told by imams that they must leave "with only the clothes on their back" and not seek support or a share of property because they can get welfare payments.

And the report says some imams knowingly perform polygamous marriages, also knowing that the second wife, a de facto under Australian law, can claim Centrelink payments.

The report is based on a study commissioned and funded by the former Howard government and conducted by the Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria.

It was presented yesterday at a National Centre for Excellence in Islamic Studies conference at Melbourne University.

It is the result of extensive community consultation, interviews with police, lawyers, court workers and academics, and meetings with and questions to the Victorian Board of Imams.

The board's role is to provide an Islamic view and religious guidance to the community and represent it to the media. The report claims that the 24-man board ignored or did not directly answer many of the questions.

It says women, community and legal workers and police involved in the consultation were particularly concerned about domestic violence, and suggested that imams aimed to preserve the family at the cost of women.

When cases came to court they were often dropped after family and community elders pressured women to withdraw charges.

The report says some women who were legally separated but not religiously divorced had their husbands enter their houses, demand sexual intercourse and take it by force.

"Workers who have assisted women in this situation said that the advice women received from the imams was that it was "halal" — permitted — because there was a valid "nikah" — marriage," it says.

The report also cites sexual assault allegations connected with under-age marriages.

It says polygamy is steadily increasing and gaining acceptance among Melbourne Muslims, and Shepparton police report many "de facto" relationships that are really polygamous marriages.

"Community workers who have provided support to women whose husbands took another wife religiously said that women blame the availability of Centrelink benefits … since one or the other wife will be claiming it, relieving the husband of the responsibility of supporting two families," the report says.

Community members quoted in the report believe that imams' narrow religious training in an increasingly complex world, lack of life experience, poor English and lack of understanding of Australia create problems for the community. For example, ill-informed comment by imams drew a wedge between the mainstream and Muslim communities.

The report suggests the Muslim community believes many imams are ill-equipped for the role, which involves much higher expectations in Australia than in predominantly Muslim countries, including marriage counselling, pastoral and spiritual care, marriages and divorces.

"They come from their own little village and culture and say this is what Islam is," one woman is quoted saying. "They come from a village where there is no running water and electricity, and they bring their dark ideas into this country."

Islam's war with India

After decades of barbaric bombings and other attacks in India, someone finally noticed that the perpetrators have been giving Allah the credit . This is a nice article that explains why Islam is a threat to the rest of us as well.

he time has arrived for the unspoken to be spoken: Radical Islam is at war with India.

The objectives of the war are to destroy India as a nation with a composite culture and multi-ethnic society, and replace it with a phenomenon which began as an enclave in Saudi Arabia in the 7th century and has already enveloped a good part of the globe.

Its spread so far is a proof of its inherent strength. In its historical march to its present expanse, it has destroyed empires, countries, religions, culture and people. It is continuously making inroads into territories where it was earlier unknown. Those who fail to comprehend its dynamics, do so at their own peril.

Radical Islam is what Prophet Mohammed is believed to have given to the citizens of Medina after his flight from Mecca. He outlined an ideology, couched in religious terms, from which an escape was next to impossible.

The ideology offered no accommodation except on its terms, ruled out all compromises, and demanded an allegiance with any violation of what was declared blasphemous, inviting instantaneous annihilation.

As radical Islam spread far and wide beyond Mecca and Medina, often in the shadow of the sword, it did encounter powerful ideas which after mellowed it and sometimes led to the emergence of new sprouts.

Sufi Islam was one such product which toned down the hard features of the original concepts and introduced new ones. It conditioned the Islamic mindset to the acceptance of co-existence with other cultures and religions. Although principally it was radical Islam which made its first forays into India in the middle and early mid centuries, the one that settled down was not so radical. Its core was impacted by Hindu philosophy, Bhakti movements and new strains within it such as Akbar’s Deen-e-Ilahi. The result was a broad based coexistence of Islam with all other religions in India.

But the purists were not amused by what they saw as contamination of Islam. Their brigade was led by the contemporary Ulemas.".....

The Ministry of Islamic Affairs forces man to to clean mosques for 'skipping prayers'

A Saudi civil court has ordered an Asian immigrant to clean mosques next month during this year's Hajj pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca after religious police caught him skipping Friday prayers several times, Saudi daily al-Watan reports. The man will have to clean five mosques along the highway into Mecca twice daily for eleven days, the court ruled.

The Ministry of Islamic Affairs will be tasked with checking if the immigrant obeys the court order. If he fails to do so, the court has warned that he will be tried before a criminal court.

Instead of handing out custodial sentences, a number of Saudi judges have recently ordered minor offenders to clean buildings and cars, memorise the Koran (the Muslim holy book) or do community work.

Earlier this month, a judge ordered a young man to memorise part of the Koran and 40 sayings of the Prophet Mohammed as a punishment for appearing in public with a woman who was not a relative.

This year's Hajj is taking place in the first half of December. Last year, two million Muslim pilgrims attended.

The Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is an obligation for all able-bodied Muslims to attend at least once during their lives, provided they can afford it.

Dancers flogged by Islamists

What will the Minister of Islamic affairs who says that music is haraam do with dancers?

"The team was flogged in Balad township, 30km north of the capital Mogadishu, where they were arrested overnight while performing a folklore dance.

"They were found dancing to traditional songs outside Balad last night (Friday) and were flogged this morning (Satureday).


Islamist official, Sheikh Ibrahim Hassan, told AFP that group violated the Islamic Sharia law that bars men and women from mingling and dancing together.

"So they were punished for their evil actions that violated Sharia law," Hassan said.

Last month, Somali men stoned to death a 13-year-old girl after an Islamic court in the southern port of Kismayo found her guilty of adultery, but it later emerged that she was raped."

The Ministry of Islamic Affairs will make you CLEAN YOURSELF AFTER DEFECATING, THE ISLAMIC WAY

Apostle of God used to clean himself after defecation using only odd number of stones. That is the sunna (examples set by Muhammad). Good Maldivian Muslims living can go to beach and pick coral this purpose (the used coral can be good building material).

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 163:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, " whoever cleans his private parts with stones should do so with odd numbers. And whoever wakes up from his sleep should wash his hands before putting them in the water for ablution, because nobody knows where his hands were during sleep."

Jinns love to eat bones and dried animal dung. They don't appreciate the contamination of their favourite delicacy with fecal matter and can pounce on the next guy they find sitting and defecating.

Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 200:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
That once he was in the, company of the Prophet carrying a water pot for his ablution and for cleaning his private parts. While he was following him carrying it (i.e. the pot), The Prophet said, "Bring me stones in order to clean my private parts, and do not bring any bones or animal dung."

"What about the bone and the animal dung?" He said, "They are of the food of Jinns. The delegate of Jinns of (the city of) Nasibin came to me--and how nice those Jinns were--and asked me for the remains of the human food. I invoked Allah for them that they would never pass by a bone or animal dung but find food on them."

You must keep your right hand clean to hold Quran.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 156:
Narrated Abu Qatada:
The Prophet said, "Whenever anyone of you urinates he should not hold his penis or clean his private parts with his right hand.

In the morning wash your nose from inside as Satan urinates and defecates inside while spending the night there. Otherwise you will have runny nose all day besides possible nose infections.

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 516:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "If anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night."

If you wake up late in the morning and miss the fajr prayer, Satan who spends the night in your nose walks out and urinates in your ears. It results in ear infection.

Bukhari Volume 2, Book 21, Number 245:
Narrated 'Abdullah :
A person was mentioned before the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and had not got up for the prayer. The Prophet said, "Satan urinated in is ears."

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 492:
Narrated 'Abdullah:
It was mentioned before the Prophet that there was a man who slept the night till morning (after sunrise). The Prophet said, "He is a man in whose ears (or ear) Satan had urinated."

Tabari II:99
"Abraham was tested with ten Islamic practices: rinsing the mouth, cleansing nostrils with water, trimming the mustache, using a toothstick, plucking the armpit (ouch), paring nails, washing finger joints, circumcision, shaving pubic hair, and washing the rear and vulva."


A shaved woman makes a tired husband after a long journey very happy.

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 173:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "If you enter (your town) at night (after coming from a journey), do not enter upon your family till the woman whose husband was absent (from the house) shaves her pubic hair ."


Circumcision keeps a woman from doing hanky panky thus protecting her from hellfire.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 41, Number 5251:
Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah:
A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina . The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said to her: Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.

Menstruation is a sickness suffered by all women. Prophet used to cure his wives of this illness by fondling.

Q 002.222: They question thee (O Muhammad) concerning menstruation. Say: It is an illness.,

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 646:
Narrated 'Aisha:
The Prophet used to treat some of his wives by passing his right hand over the place of illness.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, Number 298:
Narrated 'Aisha:
The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were Junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me.

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 299:
Narrated 'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad:
(on the authority of his father) 'Aisha said: "Whenever Allah's Apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an Izar and start fondling her." 'Aisha added, "None of you could control his sexual desires as the Prophet could."

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, Number 300:
Narrated Maimuna:
When ever Allah's Apostle wanted to fondle any of his wives during the periods (menses), he used to ask her to wear an Izar.

During prophet time, dogs used to come and urinate in the mosque all the time. Prophet was so sick and tired that he ordered all dogs of Madina killed.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 174:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Hamza bin 'Abdullah narrated: My father said. "During the lifetime of Allah's Apostle, the dogs used to urinate, and pass through the mosques (come and go)."

Bukhari volume 4, Book 54, Number 540:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
Allah's Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed.


Every time prayer breaks you have to go and make a new wudu. It is really irritating when an imam has to break prayers and go for a new wudu. It is best imams stay away from beans.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 137:
narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The prayer of a person breaks by passing of wind from the anus."

Once, after beans were served in walima feast at prophet's house the isha prayer took two hours because prophet and all namazis were preaking prayer and making wudu repeatedly.

Disruption was also caused by the namazis laughing out loud every time some one farted. Prophet had to turn around and stop them.

Prophet advised in regard to people laughing at other's passing wind from anus and said: 'You laugh at that which you yourself do.'"

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 139:
Narrated 'Abbas bin Tamim:
My uncle asked Allah's Apostle about a person who imagined to have passed wind from anus during the prayer. Allah' Apostle replied: "He should not leave his prayers unless he hears sound or smells something.


All diseases are not bad. Some are blessing in disguise.

Bukhari volume 4, Book 52, Number 82:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Five are regarded as martyrs: They are those who die because of plague, abdominal disease, drowning or a falling building etc., and the martyrs in Allah's Cause."

Bukhari Volume 8, Book 77, Number 616:
Narrated 'Aisha:
I asked Allah's Apostle about the plague. He said, "That was a means of torture which Allah used to send upon whom-so-ever He wished, but He made it a source of mercy for the believers, for anyone who is residing in a town in which this disease is present, and remains there and does not leave that town, but has patience and hopes for Allah's reward, and knows that nothing will befall him except what Allah has written for him, then he will get such reward as that of a martyr."

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 628:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "(Death from) plague is martyrdom for every Muslim."

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 629:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "He (a Muslim) who dies of an abdominal disease is a a martyr, and he who dies of plague is a martyr."

Some small illnesses like menstruation, cold, cough, headache etc are authorized by Jibraeel. But contagious diseases need permission from Allah.

"The Prophet said, 'No contagious disease is conveyed without Allah's permission.'"

When Allah decides to give fever to some one he asks the hell to transfer the heat to the designated human body.

"I heard the Prophet saying, 'Fever is from the heat of the Hell Fire.'"

Urine is not only a great drink, it cures many diseases. Indian prime minister used to drink urine and lived a very long life. He taught President Carter that trick, and Carter is still alive and kicking. However camel urine is one notch above.

"The climate of Medina did not suit some people so the Prophet ordered them to drink camel urine as a medicine."


Western corporations dread islam. They know that with islam comes the Islamic knowledge of useful cost saving short cuts. Imagine what will happen to Pharmaceutical industry if it becomes common knowledge that black cumin can cure all diseases except death.

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 592:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "There is healing in black cumin for all diseases except death."


Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 585:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
The Prophet said, "Healing is in three things: cupping, a gulp of honey or cauterization, (branding with fire) but I forbid my followers to use cauterization (branding with fire)."

Bukari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 588:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:
A man came to the Prophet and said, "My brother has some abdominal trouble." The Prophet said to him "Let him drink honey." The man came for the second time and the Prophet said to him, 'Let him drink honey."

He came for the third time and the Prophet said, "Let him drink honey." He returned again and said, "I have done that ' The Prophet then said, "Allah has said the truth, but your brother's abdomen has told a lie. Let him drink honey." So he made him drink honey and he was cured.

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 596:
Narrated Um Qais bint Mihsan:
I heard the Prophet saying, "Treat with the Indian incense, for it has healing for seven diseases; it is to be sniffed by one having throat trouble, and to be put into one side of the mouth of one suffering from pleurisy


Pharmacies can sell the fly wings which has cure.

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 673:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "If a fly falls in the vessel of any of you, let him dip all of it (into the vessel) and then throw it away, for in one of its wings there is a disease and in the other there is healing (antidote for it) i e. the treatment for that disease."

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 70, Number 555:

Narrated 'Ata bin Abi Rabah:
Ibn 'Abbas said to me, "This black lady came to the Prophet and said, 'I get attacks of epilepsy and my body becomes uncovered; please invoke Allah for me.' The Prophet said (to her), 'If you wish, be patient and you will have (enter) Paradise ; and if you wish, I will invoke Allah to cure you.' She said, 'I will remain patient,

Western doctors are amazed that prophet knew the things they still do not know. That is the reason that it is the fastest growing religion. Why do you think Maurice Bucaille , the french doctor wrote that islam is a scientific religion.

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, Number 315:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet said, "At every womb Allah appoints an angel who says, 'O Lord! A drop of semen, O Lord! A clot. O Lord! A little lump of flesh." Then if Allah wishes (to complete) its creation, the angel asks, (O Lord!) Will it be a male or female, a wretched or a blessed, and how much will his provision be? And what will his age be?' So all that is written while the child is still in the mother's womb."

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 430:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mus'ud:
Allah's Apostle, said, " a human being is put together in the womb of the mother in forty days, and then he becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his (i.e. the new creature's) deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him.."

Remember this next time you have sex.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 493:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
The Prophet said, "If anyone of you, when having sexual relation with his wife, say: 'In the name of Allah. O Allah! Protect us from Satan and prevent Satan from approaching our offspring you are going to give us,' and if he begets a child (as a result of that relation) Satan will not harm it."


Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 527:
Narrated 'Aisha:
The Prophet said, "Kill the snake with two white lines on its back, for it blinds the on-looker and causes abortion."

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 528:
Narrated 'Aisha:
The Prophet ordered that a short-tailed or mutilated-tailed snake (i.e. Abtar) should be killed, for it blinds the on-looker and causes abortion."

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 529:
Narrated Abu Mulaika:
Prophet said, 'Do not kill snakes except the short-tailed or mutilated-tailed snake with two white lines on its back, for it causes abortion and makes one blind. So kill it.'

Why bother with X and Y chromosomes. Just say inshallah for a male child specially if you want him to strive fir Allah, and become a suicide bomber to kill infidels.

You have to make sure you say "inshallah" before you have sex with your spouse if you want pregnancy and a male child.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 74i:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Once Solomon, son of David said, '(By Allah) Tonight I will have sexual intercourse with one hundred (or ninety-nine) women each of whom will give birth to a knight who will fight in Allah's Cause.' On that a (i.e. if Allah wills) but he did not say, 'Allah willing.' Therefore only one of those women conceived and gave birth to a half-man. By Him in Whose Hands Muhammad's life is, if he had said, "Allah willing', (he would have begotten sons) all of whom would have been knights striving in Allah's Cause."


Basically it is a game of control.

"Allah's Apostle said, 'Gabriel has just now told me of the answer. If a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and gets discharge first, the child will resemble him, and if the woman gets discharge first, the child will resemble her.'"


"Jewish rabbis came to the Apostle and asked him , 'Why does a boy resemble his mother when the semen comes from the father?' Muhammad replied, 'Do you not know that a man's semen is white and thick and a woman's is yellow and thin? The likeness goes with that which comes to the top.


Tabari I:258
"Allah sent Gabriel to the earth to bring Him some clay. The earth said, 'I take refuge in Allah against you mutilating me. Then He sent the angel of death. He took some soil from the earth and made a mixture. He did not take it from a single place but took red, white, and black soil. Therefore, the children of Adam came out different."


Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 506:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "When any human being is born. Satan touches him at both sides of the body with his two fingers, except Jesus, the son of Mary, whom Satan tried to touch but failed, for he touched the placenta-cover instead."

Maldivian Artists and the Ministry of Islamic Affairs

Maldivian Islamists have achieved a major political victory. They have a seat at the table. They have demanded and are getting part of what they want. They have a new Ministry of Islamic Affairs headed by Dr. Majeed - "a man who claims to have personally witnessed a beheading in Saudi Arabia and talks about it as if it is office gossip."
What else do they want?
“If such an institution is established it will be a power to protect religion in Maldives…to minimise government influence in religious affairs,” Majeed said.

So what exactly are they going to do with their power? Beheadings?
He has declared that music is haraam. He also says that a woman should not rule a country. He knows this because they told him so in a madarusa in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia.
Let us have a look at what is happening in those places.....

Bangladeshi artists under attack from Muslim hardliners
DHAKA (AFP) – Rashed Ahmed paints the fiery eyes of a python on to a giant piece of white cloth in the grounds of Dhaka University, as a huge crowd of painters, actors and writers cheer the fine arts student on.
Each of those gathered then has a tilt at drawing their own symbols, leaving a personal mark indicative of the Bangladeshi cultural heritage they say hardline Muslims are determined to destroy.
"The python is the symbol of radical Islamists," says Ahmed. "It has started devouring our rich culture. Unless we can collectively stop it, the survival of our arts, sculptures, writings and dramas will be at stake."
Large groups of Bangladeshi artists -- including film-makers, singers and writers -- began daily protests last month after authorities removed two newly commissioned sculptures of local folk singers erected outside Dhaka's airport.
A group of Muslim hardliners calling themselves the Anti-Statues Resistance Committee complained that the sculptures were idols, which are strictly forbidden in Islam, and threatened to attack the artwork with power tools.
Buoyed by their removal, hardline Islamists are now demanding that the government erect a minaret honouring Muslim pilgrims at the same airport site.
One of the group's leaders Mufti Fazlul Haq Amini, a former MP, says that he will "demolish all statues" if his party wins the December 18 parliamentary elections.
This is not the first time extremists have targeted people in the arts in Muslim-majority but officially secular Bangladesh. In 1994, feminist writer Taslima Nasreen fled the country after she was accused of blasphemy.
Another respected writer, Humayun Azad, died in 2004 after he was attacked with machetes at a book fair by suspected Islamists.
According to leading intellectual and English literature professor Sirajul Islam Chowdhury, the removal of the sculptures capped the state's growing acquiescence with extremist groups.
Last year, a satirical magazine published by the country's largest media group was closed down and its editor apologised after it printed a cartoon of prophet Mohammed.
The military-backed government also backed down from a policy to ensure equal property rights to women amid angry protests by Muslim clerics that the move would override Islamic law.

Woman in pants leave the Islamists hot and bothered.
Mainly Muslim Malaysia's National Fatwa Council recently issued a religious ruling that wearing trousers was un-Islamic.
It said that, by wearing trousers, young girls risked becoming "tomboys" who became sexually active.
That move triggered small protests later from two non-Muslim non-government organizations -- Katagender and Food-not-Bombs.
"I'm warning them and will take stern action as it involves national security," Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan told reporters on Thursday, according to the state-run Bernama news agency.
Malaysia frowns on oral and gay sex, describing them as against the order of nature. Under civil law, offenders -- male and female -- can be jailed for up to 20 years, caned or fined.
As well as women in trousers, the Fatwa Council is considering barring Muslims from practicing yoga.
Just over half of Malaysia's 27 million people are Malay Muslims, practicing the moderate form of Islam.

Why the Man is Superior to the Woman

This Muslim site tries to set straight a precocious young woman, whom Satan has clearly been working at with ideas of gender equality.

I am a Muslim girl, praise be to Allaah. I have read a lot and I have heard the scholars speak about the husband’s rights over his wife, and how great he is. I have heard ahaadeeth which speak sternly about a woman disobeying her husband. I want to obey the commands of Allaah and His Messenger when I get married, if Allaah wills, but I have a question, if I may ask about it. This question is going around in the minds of many women, but they are too embarrassed to ask them lest they be accused of ignorance or of denying the command of Allaah and His Messenger. The question is: what is it that makes the man superior so that he deserves all these rights over women?.

Praise be to Allaah.

The great rights that a husband has over his wife are something that is affirmed in sharee’ah, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect) to what is reasonable, but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them. And Allaah is All-Mighty, All-Wise”

[al-Baqarah 2:228]

“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allaah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allaah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity and their husband’s property). As to those women on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next) refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allaah is Ever Most High, Most Great”

[al-Nisa’ 4:34]

And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If I were to command anyone to prostrate to anyone other than Allaah, I would have commanded women to prostrate to their husbands. By the One in Whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, no woman can fulfil her duty towards Allaah until she fulfils her duty towards her husband. If he asks her (for intimacy) even if she is on her camel saddle, she should not refuse.”

Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 1853; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah.

And there are other similar texts.

Allaah has explained the reason in the verse where He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means”

[al-Nisa’ 4:34]

This superiority is something that Allaah has decreed, and He is not to be questioned about what He does, rather they are to be questioned. It is also because of what the man does, spending on his family and striving to earn a living for them.

Ibn Katheer (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in his Tafseer (1/363): “The phrase ‘but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them’ means that they are superior in physical nature, attitude, status, obedience to the commands of Allaah, spending, taking care of interests, and virtue, in this world and in the Hereafter, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

‘Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means’

[al-Nisa’4:34].” End quote.

He also said (1/653): “Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘Men are the protectors and maintainers of women’ meaning that men are in charge of women, i.e., they are their leaders, who rule over them and discipline them if they go astray. ‘because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other’ means, because men are superior to women, and men are better than women. Hence Prophethood was given to men only, as is the highest position of authority (i.e., khilaafah or the position of caliph), because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No people will ever succeed who appoint a woman as their ruler.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari from the hadeeth of ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Abi Bakr from his father. The same applies to the position of judge etc. ‘and because they spend (to support them) from their means’ means, because of the mahr, spending and maintenance that Allaah has enjoined upon men with regard to women in His Book and in the Sunnah of His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). So men are better than women in and of themselves, and they have the responsibility to spend on them and maintain them, so it is appropriate that the man should be the protector and maintainer of the woman, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them’, i.e., they are in charge of them. She should obey him in that which he commands her to do, and obeying him means treating his family well and protecting his wealth.” End quote.

Al-Baghawi said in his Tafseer (2/206): “ ‘because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other’ means, men excel women because they have more powers of reason and religious commitment and they are in charge of affairs. And it was said that this refers to giving testimony, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women’ [al-Baqarah 2:282]. And it was said that it refers to jihad, or to worship i.e., Jumu’ah and prayers in congregation, or that it refers to the fact that a man may marry four wives, but a woman is not permitted more than one husband; or the fact that divorce is in the man’s hand; or that it refers to inheritance, or to diyah (blood money), or to Prophethood.”

Al-Baydaawi said in his Tafseer (2/184): “ ‘Men are the protectors and maintainers of women’ means that they are in charge of them and take care of them. He gave two reasons for that, one that is inherent in them and one that is acquired subsequently, and said: ‘because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other’, because Allaah has favoured men over women by making men more perfect in reasoning and running affairs, and has given them more strength with regard to work and acts of worship. Hence men are singled out when it comes to Prophethood, leadership, guardianship, establishing rituals, giving testimony in legal matters, the obligation to engage in jihad and pray Jumu’ah, and so on, and they are given a greater share of inheritance, and divorce is in the man’s hand. ‘and because they spend (to support them) from their means’ refers to what they spend with regard to marriage, such as the mahr and maintenance, etc.” End quote.

In conclusion, men have been given the role of protectors and maintainers for the two reasons mentioned in the verse, one of which is inherent i.e., Allaah has made men superior to women, and the other of which is acquired by the man through his own hard work, which his spending his wealth on his wife.

And Allaah knows best.

Islam Question & Answer

Saturday, November 08, 2008

Statistics and the Meaning of Islam

What is the "real" Islam? Is it the Islam of the nice Muslim at work? Or is it the Islam of Osama bin Laden?
To get a logical answer, we must have a logical basis. What sources are available to answer the question? We can toss out the media and all of its answers since they generally quote apologist "experts". But is there an expert we can trust? Yes, there is. Mohammed.
The most fundamental statement that can be made about Islam is: there is no god but Allah and Mohammed is His prophet. This is the bedrock of Islam and points us directly to the only sure source of Islam-Allah and Mohammed. But where are Allah and Mohammed found? The Trilogy of Koran, Sira and Hadith. Allah is found in the Koran and Mohammed is found in the Sira (his biography) and the Hadith (his traditions of small stories and sayings). There is a special name for the sum of the Sira and the Hadith, the Sunna.
The Koran and Sunna are the only sure and certain basis of Islam. All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy.
The foundational texts of Islam --the Trilogy--suffer from being deliberately difficult. It is clear to anyone who reads these texts that every effort has been made to make the material obscure and difficult. There are two reasons for this obscurity. First, difficult texts make for a secure job for the priestly caste, the imams and scholars. If the text is clear in meaning, then no help is needed to understand it. The second reason is that the texts contain horrible and contradictory messages for the world buried under the obscurity.
The usual response to this difficulty is to skip the editing and offer up some verses from the Koran. But "verse" is a biased word in that it invokes a religious overtone. In almost every case, a verse is nothing more than a sentence. There is no other field of study in which individual sentences are given so much weight.
"Verse picking", to use a statistical term, is a very poor sampling method. What we want is the meaning, and it is impossible to learn the complete meaning from a sentence. What we need to concern ourselves with are ideas and concepts, not simply a sentence.
Let us be clear here that the very best way to obtain the complete meaning is to edit (edit does not mean change the meaning, but to order, rearrange and collect) the texts and then proceed from the edited text. The Koran is famously difficult. However, if the necessary editing is done, the Koran is a very straightforward document. The first editing steps are to put the Koran in order with respect to time. In this way when you turn the page, you advance in time, just as you would in a history book. This time line order has been known since the first days of Islam. The next step is to collect all of the variations of the same story. As an example, the story of Moses and the Pharaoh is told 39 times. If they are all collected under one category, then the Koran is easier to read and less boring.
The next step is to take the Sira and weave it into the Koran to give the Koran a context. For example, there is a verse that says that it was proper to burn the palm trees. For someone who reads this verse, a question arises: what palm trees are being talked about? The Koran gives no context. But in the day of its creation, everyone who heard the verse knew that the previous week, Mohammed had attacked some Jews who were date farmers and had destroyed their date palm trees in violation of Arabic war customs. When the story of Mohammed (from the Sira) is woven into the Koran, then the context of the attack on the Jews is clear.
A Koran that is in the proper time order, categorized, and includes Mohammed's life is a straightforward book that is easily understood. CSPI has published two Korans that have been edited this way-A Simple Koran and an Abridged Koran.
But we still have a problem. We need to be able to discuss the Koran with those who do not have access to edited Korans or who would not read them anyway. We need to be able make meaningful summary statements. Picking your favorite verse is not the way to make a summary statement.
We need a method of macro-analysis, not micro-analysis. We need to be able to talk about the big picture, the complete meaning of Islam. But there is a problem in trying to summarize Islam as it is filled with contradictory statements. So how do we deal with the contradictions while looking at the big picture?
The answer to these questions is to use a statistical measure of the texts. Don't let the word statistics scare you. The only statistics needed is counting how many items are in a category.
Take for example the idea of the importance of the Koran. The most commonly belief about Islam is that it is based upon the Koran and is a religion. Neither of these ideas is true.
How important is the Koran? It contains about 153,000 words. The Sira (by Ibn Ishaq) contains about 292,000 words, and the Hadith has 646,000 words (using the Bukhari text). So Allah is about 14% of the total of the Trilogy and the Sunna (Mohammed's words and deeds) is 86% of the total. These are only a quantitative measure, but still, it points out how important Mohammed is compared to Allah, based upon the amount of text.
This is born out further by noticing that the Koran does not contain enough information to practice even one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Only the Sunna (primarily the Hadith for religious practice) tells the Muslim how to worship. So the statistical measure shows that Islam is also Mohammedism.
Once the Koran is rearranged in the right time order, categorized and Mohammed's life is woven back into it, another fact leaps from the page. Very little of the Koran is devoted to how to be a Muslim, the religion of Islam. Instead, the majority of the Koran is about kafirs, non-Muslims. Kafirs are the worst of the creation. Allah hates kafirs and plots against them. Kafirs can be tortured, murdered, robbed, raped and enslaved. The Koran is fixated on kafirs, as was Mohammed.
To measure the Koranic fixation on kafirs, let us measure the fixation by counting the amount of text devoted to them. In Mecca an astounding 67% of the text is devoted to the kafir. In Medina 51% was about kafirs. The amount of text in the entire Koran devoted to kafirs is 61%.
As an aside, Islam excludes kafirs in every way from its religious practice. Since the kafir is outside of Islam, the term political Islam is used to describe the doctrine of Islam as it is applied to the "others", the kafirs. So 61% of the Koran is about political Islam, not religious Islam. (KS Lal gives the figure of 63% in Theory and Practice of Muslim State in India, Aditya Prakashan, 1999, N. Delhi, pg. 4).
The Sira shows the importance of Islam's political nature. Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for 13 years in Mecca and only gained 150 followers. He moved to Medina where he became a politician and warrior. After 10 years of violence he became ruler of all Arabia without a single enemy left standing. He was involved in an event of violence every 6 weeks for the last 9 years of his life. Statistical conclusion-Islam's success came from war and politics, not religion.
Another statistical conclusion: Islam is primarily a political doctrine, not a religion.
Simple statistics also reveal the true nature of the political/religious idea of jihad. When the word jihad is used, Muslims say that there are two kinds of jihad. There is the religious jihad, the greater jihad--the inner struggle against personal problems. The war jihad is the lesser jihad.
The Hadith of Bukhari gives all of the tactical details of jihad. A simple counting method shows that 3% of the hadiths are about the inner struggle, whereas, 97% of the hadiths are about jihad as war. So is jihad the inner struggle? Yes, 3%. Is jihad the war against kafirs? Yes, 97%.
This leads to a very important concept. Islam is based upon contradictory statements. How do we sort them out to get the complete meaning? We measure the amount of text devoted to each side of the dichotomy. That is what we did with the question of which jihad is the real jihad. It gives a complete statistical answer.
There is nothing new here. Only single value state ideas can be measured by one number. Multi-state ideas must be evaluated by statistics that measure every state of the variable. If an idea has different manifestations, then instead of arguing which is the right manifestation, just measure all of the manifestations.
There is an exact analogy to the measurement of the state of the electron in an atom. Quantum physics does not give a single answer about the energy and position, but gives us the statistical probabilities of each possible state. The same is true about Islam. We need to know its total state, not something about one category.
In conclusion, statistics is a superior way to gain complete knowledge of the texts of Islam. Statistics allows us to explore Islam in its totality. Remember the old story of the blind men feeling the elephant? One said the elephant was like a rope, another a tree, a wall and so forth. Was each man right? Were any of them wrong? No. But none of them were completely right. Statistical analysis cannot tell us the qualitative story but it allows us to remove the blinders of only looking at one category and forces us to look at the total picture.
Notice that this approach also effectively tells us how to evaluate the "experts" that get trotted out to buttress a favorite position. This is the iron rule of Islam-only Mohammed defines the truth of Islam. If what an expert says agrees with Mohammed, then the he is right, but he is redundant. If what the expert says contradicts Mohammed, then the expert is wrong. So experts are either redundant or wrong. Only Mohammed tells us the truth about Islam and he is never wrong or redundant. Skip the experts and move straight to Mohammed. The statistical approach does just that.

How the Mutawas (Morality Police) Keep the Saudi Society Clean from Vice

With Muslim "scholars" getting a Ministry of Islam what can we expect? The Religious Police? Forced namaadhu? all female schoolchildren and government employees to wear the burugaa? Compulsory clitoris cutting?
Read below to have an idea of what happens in the Holy Land of Saudi Arabia as many of these mullahs were "educated" there.

Four months ago Salaman Al Huraisi, a 28-year old hotel security guard was tortured to death in the headquarters of the Saudi Commission for the Protection of Virtue and Suppression of Vice. Its 10.000 men are known as the “Mutawas” (pious men). Maher Al Hamizi, the lawyer of the Huraisi family said, an autopsy has shown that Salman’s skull was split open and his eyes were dislodged from their sockets. After midnight of a humid hot day, a GMC loaded with Mutawas stormed into Al Huraisi’s house in a poor area of Riyadh. While shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) they broke down the house’s doors and tore personal belongings looking for alcohol. His alleged crime: he drank beer.

Human Rights Watch reported, Sina, 25-years old Mongolian girl, who was shopping in a glitzy Riyadh mall was spotted by two Mutawas. They canned her and shoved her into their GMC because she did not cover her face. They denounced her as Filipina Gahba (Filipina whore), drove her to their office where they raped her and sent her to prison.

Muhammed Sadeeq, a Bangladeshi, told Spiegel On-Line, his brother Ahmed died after being hauled into a local Commission headquarters for being in a car with a woman who was not his close relative. The Mutawas did not believe that Ahmed was employed as the family’s driver. Ahmed was a diabetic. The Mutawas refused to allow him get his medication.

Recently, a former colleague of mine at King Saud University told me on the phone, his neighbor Ameera, a young Saudi woman endured a harrowing evening at the hands of some Mutawas after arriving in her car to pick up her children from an amusement park. Because she was laughing with her driver, the Mutawas accused her of indecency. They ejected her driver, drove Umm Ali outside Riyadh, crushed her car and dashed off.

George who is now living in the USA and years back he used to work for a big restaurant in Riyadh told me, “One day, it was difficult to push out our customers before Asr-prayers. We were 2 or 3 minutes late. All of a sudden a squad of Mutawas stormed into the restaurant and arrested all of us, 13 employees, and drove us to their headquarters. There, we had to wash and pray. Although I’m Christian I prayed like a Muslim, I knew how to do it, I just followed what the others did. As one of the Mutawas saw my Saudi-issued identity card, he shouted, ‘hold on! You’re damned ‘Nassrani’ (Christian). Have you formally converted?’ I said, ‘Sort of.’ He said, ‘No, no, you have to do it formally.’ That meant I had to do all my Iqama (residency) paper work all over again und use a Muslim name. I had to replace ‘George’ with ‘Mohammed’.”

“Marcus, a Filipino, who arrived for the first time in Saudi Arabia, was arrested by two Mutawas as he was leaving Riyadh Airport. His alleged crime: he was carrying a cross around his neck. He was accused of proselytizing. The man has been in prison for three years now.” Said Helene Berger from Amnesty International/Germany.

Even diplomats are not spared by the Mutawas. In March 2006, Ingrid Krueger, then the German press attaché at the German Embassy experienced the wrath of the morality police while entering a restaurant in Riyadh. She was conservatively dressed but she did not have her Abaya (Islamic robe) on. As she was harangued by a Mutawa, she pulled out her Saudi-issued diplomatic identity card. The Mutawa threw the card on the ground and grind it into the pavement with the sole of his shoes. Some Saudis who happened to be in the restaurant managed eventually to convince the Mutawas that what they did was wrong and the pit dogs left.

Sheikh Ibraheem Al Ghaith, the director of the Commission for the Protection of Virtue and Suppression of Vice, on a minister salary, told the reporter of the German newspaper Die Welt “The women’s body in holy Saudi Arabia must be covered from head to toe lest it drives society into Vice.” Al Ghaith declined to comment on the above cases and victims of similar ones. He simply said, “We are acting in accordance with the Shari’a. This is the law of God. The Commission is doing a great job. My people have corrected the un-Islamic behavior of over a million people last year.” Before saying good bye, Al Ghaith “gave the reporter a bunch of publications in Arabic: A collection of Fatwas (religious rulings) and an Islamic calendar.

The Mutawas, whom some Saudis derisively refer to as the “Talibans”, are notorious for committing excesses in their zeal for enforcing a puritan brand of Islam. The Mutawas, typically, beefy men in short robes with untrimmed bushes of beards springing from their chins, patrol in squads the Kingdom’s streets and shopping malls, day and night. They can shopkeepers for not shutting down their shops in time for prayer, and severely rebuke women and even little girls for allowing flesh to show from under their Abayas (mandatory black gowns). They make sure that the Saudi society is strictly segregated: From university campuses, restaurants, to kindergartens. The genders live corralled existence.

The public backlash against the Mutawas is growing, not only among liberal Saudis but also among ordinary, conservative, religious, middle class folks. A former colleague at King Saud University said, “Saudis are religious and traditionalists by nature. They have no problem with the Commission per se. The problem is the license that the Mutawas have to interfere in the smallest details of everyday life and to effectively act as though they were above the law.”

We have yet to hear any condemnation by Muslim leaders.

The United Nations said Tuesday that a Somali stoned to death by Islamist militants after she had been accused of adultery was a 13-year-old girl who had been raped while visiting her grandmother.

In the first such public killing by the militants in about two years, she was placed in a hole and stoned to death on Oct. 28 in a rebel-held port city, Kismayu, in front of a crowd, after local leaders said she was guilty under Shariah, the legal code of Islam based on the Koran.

Witnesses said at the time that the victim had been a 23-year-old woman.

“Reports indicate that she had been raped by three men while traveling on foot to visit her grandmother in the war-torn capital, Mogadishu,” Unicef, the United Nations children’s agency, said in a statement.

“Following the assault, she sought protection from the authorities, who then accused her of adultery and sentenced her to death,” Unicef added. “A child was victimized twice — first by the perpetrators of the rape and then by those responsible for administering justice.”

Unicef said the episode highlighted the vulnerability of girls and women in Somalia, which has suffered under cycles of civil conflict for the past 17 years. In the latest cycle, Islamist rebels are fighting the government and their Ethiopian military backers.

Rebel spokesmen could not be reached immediately to respond to Unicef’s accusation.

The human rights group Amnesty International has identified the girl as Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow and said she was killed by 50 men who stoned her in a stadium in Kismayu in front of about 1,000 spectators.

Her father and other sources were quoted by Amnesty International as saying that she had been raped by three men.

When the family tried to report the rape to the Shabab militia that controls Kismayu, the girl was accused of adultery and was detained. None of the men she accused of rape have been arrested.

Child Killed for Attempting to Rescue Stoned Woman...

Asha Ibrahim Dhuhulow, 23, was buried up to her neck in front of hundreds of people Monday in a square in Kismayu and stones were hurled at her head. She was dragged out of the hole three times to see if she was dead.

Islamists said Dhuhulow wanted punishment under Sharia law.

"A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless act of stoning," said Abdullahi Aden, who witnessed the execution. "We were told she submitted herself to be punished, yet we could see her screaming as she was forcefully bound, legs and hands."

When a relative and others surged forward to rescue her, guards opened fire and killed a child, witnesses said.

"[Dhuhulow] was asked several times to review her confession but she stressed that she wanted Sharia law and the deserved punishment to apply," local leader Sheikh Hayakallah said.

Devout Muslim Threatens to Kill Roommate over Guitar Playing...

Devout Muslim Bilal Abdulla told the man to “stop playing and start praying” after taking offence at the instrument, a jury was told.

Woolwich Crown Court heard evidence of an intimidating exchange at his Cambridge flat in 2005 from former friend Shiraz Maher.

Mr Maher said the two students were working at their computers when a third man started to play a guitar in another room.

Abdulla gestured towards a violent video of an ambush of an American Humvee vehicle in Iraq on his computer.

Mr Maher said: “He made reference to one of those grisly, very grisly videos that would come out of Iraq at that time.

“He said, ’I told him, you need to stop playing and start praying otherwise this is what we do - we slaughter.”’

He added: “Immediately after saying it Bilal laughed heartily and I remember laughing as well.

“The reason it stayed so vividly in my memory was the degree to which it was disproportionate.”
