Quran 3:191 – Family of Imran

رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.

ISIS beheads 30 more in Libya, saying all Christians must convert to Islam or pay jizya

When it is said that Islam is a “religion of peace,” you must question what the definition of “peace” is.  For many in the Muslim world, peace comes when Islam conquers all, and those who do not convert must pay the jizya (an extortionary tax prescribed by the Quran for non-believers).  This message was clearly on display yesterday as ISIS terrorists marched 30 Ethiopian Christians to the sea and beheaded them on camera.

from CNN:

The al-Furqan Media video – which is highly produced and titled “Until There Came to Them Clear Evidence” – shows two groups of men in orange and black jumpsuits being killed at different locations in Libya, according to the video’s narrator.

“All praise be to Allah, the Lord and cherisher of the world and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Mohammed. To the nation of the cross, we are back again on the sands, where the companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him, have stepped on before, telling you: Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap,” the narrator says in Arabic on the 30-minute video.

The narrator continues, “In fact, their blood is the purest blood because there is a nation behind them (which) inherits revenge. And we swear to Allah: the one who disgraced you by our hands, you will not have safety, even in your dreams, until you embrace Islam.”

Quoting Mohammed, the narrator says that those who “perform prayer and pay alms” will have “their blood and property” protected by the Prophet unless Islam dictates otherwise.

“You pay (tax) with willing submission, feeling yourselves subdued. Our battle is a battle between faith and blasphemy, between truth and falsehood, until there is no more polytheism – and obedience becomes Allah’s on its entirety,” the narrator says.

The point here is not to besmirch any Muslims who are willing to stand up and openly denounce this violence and the entire concept of the jizya (which is wholly antithetical to liberty).  I have no quarrel with any Muslim who boldly defends the liberty of those who disagree with him.  

Where are those Muslims today? 

“The doors of success have been closed upon the creation because of six things:

  1. Their busying themselves with the blessings of Allah instead of thanking Allah for them;
  2. Their desire for knowledge while they abandon actions;
  3. The hastiness to sin and delaying repentance;
  4. The deception of having righteous companions and not taking them as examples;
  5. The turning away of the dunya from them while they chase it;
  6. And the approach of the afterlife towards them while they turn away from it.”
