Eight Michigan Mosques are banding together to "dispel" Islamic stereotypes. Which loosely translated means that they are going to lie through their teeth.
Open houses aim to dispel Muslim stereotypes
BY NIRAJ WARIKOO
Called "Meet your Muslim neighbor," open houses are to be held today at eight mosques in metro Detroit in an effort to help dispel stereotypes about Muslims. It's believed to be the first time that local mosques have coordinated together on a one-day event to educate non-Muslims about Islam.
Really, will they educate non-Muslims to the fact that Islam allows Muslims to lie?
From the "lying" chapter of Reliance of the Traveller
A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law
R8.2 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
‘He who settles disagreements between people to bring about good or says something commendable is not a liar.’
This much is related by both Bukhari and Muslim, with Muslim’s version recording that Umm Kulthum added,
‘I did not hear him permit untruth in anything people say, except for three things: war, settling disagreements, and a man talking with his wife or she with him (A: in smoothing over differences.)’
This sure leaves the door open for a lot of lying.
"When people hear the word 'Islam,' they don't know what to think," said Rashid Taufiq, 57, of Rochester Hills, who is coordinating the open houses with the Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan.
I know what to think....Islam is a religion/political ideology that calls for the dominance of non-Muslims.
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
"They read about some terrorist activity in some other part of the world. They don't know what to make of a Muslim who might be a next door neighbor. ... A Muslim is no different from any other American in this country."
Well to be honest I do not know one non-Muslim that follows an ideology that commands them to fight on until everyone follows their beliefs.
Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."
If Muslims are just like everyone else how does this Koran verse play out?
YUSUFALI: 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.
Muslims are not supposed to take Jew and Christians as friends. If Muslims are like everyone else here, that would mean that Jews and Christians should not be friends with one another or their own people. But this verse states that they are. Try making some sense in your Islamocon.
Finally if Muslims are just like anyone else here in America, please explain how under Islam Jesus is supposed to come back to destroy the cross relates to the Christians of America?
Book 37, Number 4310:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
Are you implying that Christians want their own religion destroyed? To be honest non-Muslims and Muslims sound like polar opposites.
