Is Islam a Religion?
How can Islam be a religion, since it has passed blasphemy laws that call for the death penalty of all who want to leave it, or insult it? A true blessing of religion is that it gives people a sense of freedom and comfort even amidst the cruelty in their life and the harsh reality of man’s political institutions; it does not add to such cruelty. By that standard, Islam has failed miserably.
This is why that Islam as a whole is not a religion. Instead, it is a form of Arab domination and a protective tool to preserve what they believe to be an Arab culture. Without violent jihad, Mohammed could not have become the ruler of Medina; his successors could not have forced back into the fold those who wanted to leave as soon as Mohammed died; Islam could not have sustained itself in Arabia; and it would not have been able to defeat the great surrounding civilizations.
The Koran states that: [2.256] There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.There shall be no compulsion in religion . . . The problem is that there are a many verses in the Koran and the Hadith which say the exact opposite. The truth is that the earlier freedom verses are nullified (revoked) by the later war-like instructions. Following are some warlike statements against non-Muslims:
Take them and kill them wherever ye find them. [4.91] You will find others who desire that they should be safe from you and secure from their own people; as often as they are sent back to the mischief they get thrown into it headlong; therefore if they do not withdraw from you, and (do not) offer you peace and restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and against these We have given.you a clear authority.
Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme. [2.193] And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.
The unjust shall be in the agonies of death. [6.93] And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah, or says: It has been revealed to me; while nothing has been revealed to him, and he who says: I can reveal the like of what Allah has revealed? and if you had seen when the unjust shall be in the agonies of death and the angels shall spread forth their hands: Give up your souls; today shall you be recompensed with an ignominious chastisement because you spoke against Allah other than the truth and (because) you showed pride against His communications.
Wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered. [33.57] Surely (as for) those who speak evil things of Allah and His Apostle, Allah has cursed them in this world and the here after, and He has prepared for them a chastisement bringing disgrace. [33.58] And those who speak evil things of the believing men and the believing women without their having earned (it), they are guilty indeed of a false accusation and a manifest sin. [33.59] O Prophet! say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers that they let down upon them their over-garments; this will be more proper, that they may be known, and thus they will not be given trouble; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [33.60] If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease and the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall most certainly set you over them, then they shall not be your neighbors in it but for a little while; [33.61] Cursed: wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering.
[33.62] (Such has been) the course of Allah with respect to those who have gone before; and you shall not find any change in the course of Allah.
Allah has cursed the unbelievers. [33.64] Surely Allah has cursed the unbelievers and has prepared for them a burning fire, [33.65] To abide therein for a long time; they shall not find a protector or a helper.
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.” (Al-Bukhari, vol. 4, 124)
Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him. (ibid., vol. 9, 45)
It has been said that there are thousands of Koran verses, Hadiths, sharia laws and various Muslim scriptures that command and encourage hatred, killing and war against non-Muslims. Although most Muslims do not obey these laws, even the ones who do are driven by the hateful propaganda found in their Muslim scriptures are able to cause much grief and destruction.
Whatever the numbers may be, it is surprising and deeply troubling that even among Muslims now living in the West, there is a high percentage that believes that those who want to leave Islam should be killed, because in the Islamic scriptures apostasy is not only a sin but also a capital offence. Also, prominent Islamic teachers who promote the fundamental version of Islam are valued among Islamic activists even in the West. They are convinced that they are called to strive for the Islamization of the West.
The desire of Islam is to destroy all governments and religions anywhere on the face of the Earth that are opposed to the belief and laws of Islam no matter what country or nation that rules it. It is the basic aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution.
Sharia courts have often handed down death sentences as a matter of course in countries run by strict Islamic believers, when a Muslim converts to Christianity . . . but often, the government does not even get involved in the sentence, because converts are killed by their own family or their neighbors.
