A Road to Perdition?

[Note: To keep the
length of this article short, I have cited only the major message
contained in the Qur’anic verses. If you want to read the complete verse

to liberal and non-discriminatory immigration policy of the infidels,
millions of Muslims, living in many Islamic countries under abject
poverty, misery and helplessness were able to migrate to these Kufur
states (like the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand….etc) to improve
their lot; and many of them were able to do so.
Naturally, their host county
would expect them to be thankful eternally for offering them this rare
opportunity. Most immigrants have no problem in expressing such gratitude
and loyalty to their adopted country. Nonetheless, such is not the case
with the diehard Islamists. Let us ask the question of loyalty to an
Islamist who has migrated to a western country like the USA or Canada or
Australia. What answer shall we expect?
I did ask a few Islamists in
Australia such a question. Their answer stunned me completely. I was
appalled by their audacity and their show of ungratefulness. The blithe
answer they gave was: It is not the Australian Government or its
immigration policy that has brought them here (Australia). It was Allah
who brought them in Australia.
Many of them contend that this
exodus of Muslims to infidel lands is comparable to the seventh century
migration of Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) from Mecca to Medina with a
handful of Muslims, less than seventy in all.
These Islamists then went a
few steps further and declared that Australia belongs to Allah, and
as such all Muslims have the right to be here, in this Allah’s
land. And why Allah has brought them here? That answer is also
given clearly. Allah has a grand plan with this new bunch of Muhajirun
The plan of Allah is to
propagate Islam through His humble followers. That meant: these Muslim
migrants, mostly from the Third World countries, are in Australia to lead
these sinful infidels into the fold of Islam, so that righteousness is
established with the sinners (that is, the western infidels) and they (the
infidels) are given a ‘beautiful’ taste of Islam. What an audacious
statement—you might say.
But wait, isn’t this what
the Qur’an says? They will quote several verses from the Qur’an
to backup their claims. In short, these poor people were sent to
Australia by Allah to show the ‘straight’ path (Siratul
Mustakim) to the uncivilized, corrupt, lustful infidels. Isn’t this
very similar to the original Meccan destitute who migrated with the
Prophet (pbuh) of mercy?
Look, if those humble,
half-clad, half-fed, indigents (Muhajirun) could convert the entire
Arabia from Jahilia to an Islamic paradise, then why not the poor
Muslim migrants of today achieve the same lofty goal in Australia? As
theirs argument goes. How uncanny these similarities are!
Truly, one cannot but wonder
at the Kudrat of Allah. Hasn’t Allah, once again, brought the
seventh century, pure, serene Islam to redeem mankind? Allah is capable of
anything; the twenty-first century is the century of Islam, these
Islamists told me in their pithy but no nonsense reply. It is difficult to
counter argue with these religious zealots, utterly high on Islam.
Such is the audacity and
determination of these neo-Islamists
Let us first look at Qur’an
and see what those Islamists told me is correct or not:
God gradually reduces the land
under the control of the unbelievers from its outlying borders…13:41
God is the master
God will make the believers to
live in the land of the wrong doers (those who are perished by God) and
God gradually reduces the land
controlled by unbelievers...21:44
God will grant inheritance in
land and will establish the authority of believers of religion
There they are, the words of Allah.
You have just read them—yes, the Islamists are absolutely correct as far
as the Qur’an is concerned.
No wonder, we see many of
these neo-Islamists are hell bent to establish mosques in every suburb of
infidel countries where they have planted their nascent root, including
Australia. No wonder we see them, every now and then, exhorting Islam in
We see them knocking
frequently at the doors of many Muslims to invite them to mosques for
religious discussions. And what discussions are being held there? Surely,
it is not the discussion about the reform of Medicare in Australia,
neither it is a discussion about the impending hike in University fees or
anything like that sort-- matters that concern most infidel Australians.
They will invariably deal with
Chechnya, Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan….etc. With passionate
and tearful speeches they will call the near ‘brothers’ to donate
generously in funds (such as MuslimAid, Australia) to help those distant
‘brothers.’ They have so much of sympathy, love, and tears for those
far-away ‘brothers,’ but have no heart for the real sinner infidel
Australians who have given them a chance to contribute generously to their
Islamic brothers in those places.
Neither do they have any tear
left to mourn the merciless slaughter of 88 Australian (infidels, of
course) in the wake of Bali bombing. Sometimes, they will openly declare
that emulating the mainstream Australian life is an act of Kufur or
unbelief. They will invariably assert that as far as possible, Muslims
should deal with Muslims only and have the minimum interaction with the
infidels. In support of this ‘religious apartheid’ they will quote
from the Qur’an verses freely and blithely such as:
Do not take unbelievers as
friends; caution is necessary to befriend the unbelievers...3:28
It is not honourable to take
unbelievers as friends...4:139
Do not take unbelievers as
Believers are not to take the
Jews and Christians as friends and protectors; if any believer (i.e.
Muslim) turn to them then he also becomes a Jew or a Christian...5:51
Real friends are God, His
apostle (Muhammad) and the fellowship of pious and charitable
God's wrath and torments is
for befriending the unbelievers...5:80
Whoever seeks the friendship
of evil people will be lead to the penalty of fire...22:3
Cannot be on terms of secret
intimacy or be friendly with the enemies of faith ...60:1
Some Islamists even criticize
their folks for buying a tiny Christmas tree just for the little children
or even for attending Christmas parties. They will even go a step further
in declaring that the Australians must learn from them (the Muslim
migrants) and not the other way around.
In my experience, I found the
supreme rage of the Islamists is reserved for the way the Australian women
dress, work and live. Many Muslim women are subtly forced to wear hijab
just to demonstrate to the infidel women the superior chastity of Muslim
women. Ten years ago, it was rare to find a hijabi woman in any
street of Sydney.
The situation is quite
different now. Go to any rail-station, shopping centre, eating stall,
college, university, etc., you will invariably notice a hijabi
woman standing nearby. Many Islamists openly declare that all Muslim women
must cover themselves in (ugly) hijab and cloak no matter what
others may think of them.
This is because these Muslim
women will become the shining examples or beacon of femininity, chastity,
and Islamic beauty to the infidel women and they (the infidel women) will
eventually follow the Muslim women and happily wear the Muslim garb. This
means that these infidel women, will, one day, surely be covered by
Islamic hijab—these Islamists are absolutely certain. Why?
Because, Allah has ordained it—one day the entire world will become an Ummah
(Islamic community) of some sort. They have no doubt on this.
Most westerners will be deeply
shocked and saddened to learn what lies deeply buried in the hearts of
these Islamists living in the West. These infidels have openly and warmly
welcomed the Islamists in their midst without imposing any of their
religious and cultural practices. The Muslims are free to practice their
faith openly anywhere in any infidel country.
The Islamists have a
completely different understanding of this kind gesture of the infidels.
They believe that this generosity, magnanimity, kindness and policy of
inclusion are nothing but gifts from Allah. Only Allah is to
be praised for this.
This leads one to conclude
that they (the Islamists) are thankful to Allah and Allah
only and not to the Australians. They will even insist that the
Australians must emulate the Muslims instead of the other way round. Let
me give an example: the cry for prayer in mosques or the ringing of bells
in churches or temples is considered as sources of noise pollution in
As such, these religious
activities are banned in churches and mosques and at any other religious
institution. The Islamists dream of converting all churches in Australia
into mosques and wish the air of Australia to be filled with
‘gorgeous’ sirens of Azan. This it what the Islamists mean when
they say, ‘no compulsion in religion’ (2:256).
The Islamists started their
‘Dakwah’ (religious invitation) with fervent zeal. Regular
monthly meetings were held in mosques and in private houses to spread the
beautiful teachings of Islam.
In reality, those meetings
were designed by the clever Islamists to program the simple-minded Muslims
not to eat at McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut…..but to
promote the Muslim eateries, even though these so called halal
eating-stations were unhygienic, distasteful, rodent and cockroach
infested.. But never mind such unpleasantness and poor foodstuff, Allah’s
food is more valuable than the clean, hygienic and nutritious infidel,
non-halal , impure, unholy junks.
Many Muslims were told to keep
away their children from the influence of infidel kids. Further
exhortations were made to enroll the children in Islamic kindergartens and
Islamic Primary Schools.
Then from nowhere came the
9/11, and about a year late, the Bali bombing. Most infidels wanted an
answer for such barbaric and inhuman ‘Islamic justice.’ The mainstream
media was hopeless. People were not at all satisfied with what the PC
correct mainline electronic and print media wrote about ‘Peaceful
Islam.’ They turned to the Internet and found out about the ‘real
The bombshell articles they
read shattered the myth of peaceful Islam. The infidels, as well as many
innocent, non-practicing Muslims were simply stunned and shocked. They
could not believe what they were reading about what they always thought to
be the most peaceful, non-violent, merciful religion of Allah.
Alarmed by this exposure of
the truth about ‘real Islam,’ the Islamists hastily laid out their
strategy to combat this ‘Internet apostasy’ and ‘Electronic
blasphemy’. Here, I am listing five distinct tactics that the Islamists
have, thus far, pursued systematically:
In the beginning, the
Islamists arguments ran like: ‘out of context’, ‘selective
quotes’, ‘verses not quoted in its entirety’, ‘using incorrect
verse’, ‘translation problem’, ‘Qur’an cannot be
translated’, ’spelling error’, ‘grammatical and punctuation
mistakes’, ‘no fluency in Arabic’, ‘ulterior motive to defame Allah’s
Din’ (religion of Allah) and so on.
Afterwards, they started to
review the CV of the writers and raised excuses such as: ‘pseudonym
writer’, ‘background of the writer’, ‘whereabouts of the
author’, ‘the age of the writer’, ’what qualifications the author
has’, ‘which University the author graduated from’, ’in which
place the writer does his research’,’ who is his
supervisor’……….and so on.
When the above-mentioned
arguments did not do the trick, then came the following: every religion
(actually, meaning Islam) has good points and bad points, why dwell with
the bad ones only while ignoring the good ones? Why blame Islam only?
Don’t you have time for other activities than ‘bashing Islam? Why
waste time discussing Islam when we should talk about industrial
development of poor countries? Why not take a long break and refrain from
The Islam ‘bashers’
laughed heartily. Why? Those arguments were a clear admission that there
are really ‘bad’ elements in Islam, which was, hitherto, sold as the
perfect religion of Allah Even Allah admits that He perfected this
religion in verse 5:3
This day God perfected the
religion of Islam and accepted Islam as the only religion for mankind
(last verse revealed)...5:3
How is it possible for this
‘perfection’ of Allah to have some malcontents? Many of us wondered.
Do the Islamists realize what they have done to this ‘perfect’
religion by admitting that not everything is fine and dandy with Islam?
Do they recognize that by
lumping Islam in the same bucket with other religions, they made their
claim of Islamic superiority a laughing joke? Do they grasp that by
resorting to such a glib ploy they have rejected the very verse of the
Qur’an that says unmistakably that Islam is the only acceptable religion
Here are some samples from the
Can't worship anything other
than God; Islam is the only right religion (the purpose of an Islamic
Islam is the religion of
Any religion other than Islam
is not acceptable...3:85
Islam is the perfect
God has chosen Islam, it is
the religion of Abraham; God has named the followers of Abraham as
God proclaims Islam (the
religion of truth) over all other religion...48:28
It was not too long before the
Islamists realized their fatal mistake. Consequently, they changed their
tune abruptly. This time, their argument continued something like this: If
you criticize Islam, then, how about Christianity? How about Judaism? How
about Hinduism? One should not criticize only one religion (that is,
You must criticize other
religions too…. blah, blah, blah. Quoting many belligerent verses from
the old Testament, they started to demonstrate how bad it (i.e.
Christianity and Judaism) was, forgetting the fact that by bringing out
those barbaric verses from the old Testament, the Islamists were simply
reinforcing and authenticating the ‘appalling elements’ of the Qur’an
as well. Why?
Because, the Qur’an confirms
the contents of those holy Books (i.e. the Old Testament and the Gospel).
Here are a few verses where Allah authenticates the what He had written in
those scriptures are also parts of the Qur’an:
The Qur’an confirms the old
books; Moses was given the law, Jesus was given the Gospel...3:3
Quran confirms the previous
scriptures and supersedes them; if God willed He could have made a single
people; believers are to compete in righteousness...5:48
Quran confirms the previous
The Quran is from God, it
confirms the revelations of the past; Quran is a fuller explanation of
God’s book; it contains no doubt...10:37
The Quran confirms in Arabic
the book of Moses...46:12
Therefore, shall we not assume
that by ‘bashing’ the Bible, the Islamists had, inadvertently bashed
the Qur’an itself? How funny it can be, come to think of it!
The Islamists, once again,
very quickly, realized their folly in resorting to this type of amusing
game. So, what is the next ploy?
After arduous and diligent
research, the Islamists now came to the conclusion that their methods are
silly and has become rather counter-productive. The world, at large, is no
longer buying their arguments readily. A new tactic was thus necessary.
How about admitting that no one has yet become a ‘true’ Muslim? Once
the world realizes that there is truly no ‘real Islam’, no ‘true
Muslim’, then no one can attack Islam any more.
How clever this idea is, the
Islamists smiled to each other. Thus the theory of ‘Islamic denial’
took shape. Let me explain this theory of denial in plain language. Say,
someone says that your brother is a corrupt government officer and you are
aware that the accuser is correct. What do you do now? Do you accept your
accuser’s complain or reject it? No, do not be so foolish enough to do
You simply say that you do not
have a brother or that your brother has passed away. If the complainant
still insists that your brother do exist, you simply say that your brother
is not your ‘real’ brother. See, how simple it is!
This is the essence of
‘Islamic denial’ theory. Whenever ‘awful things’ in Islam are
pointed out, all that the Islamists have to do is simply state: this is
not ‘real’ Islam and that solves all problems. See, how clever it is!
Let us read some examples:
There is not a single ‘true
Muslim’ even though there are 1.2 billion of us.
There is not a single
‘pure’ Islamic country.
A perfect Islamic state is yet
to be founded.
Ayatollah Khomeini was an
enemy of Islam.
Pakistan, Iran, Sudan,
Afghanistan, Nigeria…these Islamic Paradise do not follow ‘real’
Saudi Arabian Islam is
Not all Sahi hadis are Sahi.
The Quran is an ancient
scripture; many of its provisions are not relevant now (the Quran says it
is an eternal book, and its provisions are alive forever).
Tyrants and dictators rule
Islamic countries; they have no idea about Islam.
Since most of the barbarism of
Islam is in the Sha’ria, therefore, Sha’ria cannot be a part of
The clergy/Mullahs do not know
In Islam, there is no
‘clergy’, so you may practice Islam in your own way.
But for Islam/Muslim/Arab
scientists, the west would have never achieved modernity and progress.
‘Real Islam’ civilized the west.
The best country to practice
‘real Islam’ is the USA, Canada, UK and Australia!
You cannot practice ‘real
Islam’ in Islamic Paradises like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia,
Sudan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Iran…etc. You must not use these countries as
examples of Islamic practices.
Wahabism is not ‘real
Alqaeda/Osama is not
Talibans are not ‘true’
Shias are not ‘true’
Sunnis are not ‘true’
Amhedia/Kadiani are heretics,
not Muslims but Dr. Abdus Salam (an Ahmedi) was a devout Muslim because he
received Nobel Prize in Physics.
Islam means ‘peace’
although the true meaning is ‘submission’ or surrender.
The West hijacked Islam and
made their societies more Islamic than the ‘true’ Islamic societies.
Even though Saddam was a
secularist and an atheist, we still consider him as a ‘good’ Muslim.
Those are just a few samples
of words and sentences that are in vogue with the Islamists of today.
After 9/11, Bali bombing, and many other Islamic terror/atrocities (read
Holy terror), many diehard Islamists find no place to hide even though
they are looking for a cover or safe haven of some sort.
They too, are deeply appalled
and extremely ashamed to notice the practices of unbelievable inhumanity,
tyranny, falsity, terror and barbarisms that are an integral part of Islam
as exposed by many writers who dare to challenge Islam. Nevertheless, they
could never admit that it is Islam that is the breeding ground of such
terror acts. They are adamant that it is not ‘real Islam.’
So, why is there such a sudden
change of tune? You see, after 9/11 and especially after the Bali bombing,
the Australians have woken up from their deep slumber. The statements from
the Bali bomb suspects (under trial now in Jakarta) Amrozi and Imam
Samudra have deeply shocked everyone in Australia. These two Islamists
have said in no uncertain terms that the infidels deserve to be killed.
Most Muslims will dismiss
claims by these Islamic fanatics as baseless, but not the victims of Bali
bombing and a major section of Australians. Muslims are now looked upon in
a very different way. Although not too hateful, most Australians cannot
take for granted that one day the Islamic terrorists will not try to seize
power by force to enforce ‘real Islam’ in every sphere of Australian
Call it Islamphobia or what
you may, the West in general and the Australians in particular have
already experienced the taste of ‘real Islam’ and they do not want
even an iota of it in their lives.
The government is now very
concerned about the threat of ‘real Islam,’ not from outside of
Australia but from inside Australia, from the very Islamists whom the
Australians have fed and clothed, and gave the chance of a better life to
them and to their children. The security has also been beefed up and all
sectors of security service are now extra vigilant.
It is now abundantly clear
that all those arguments are completely dud and hollow. The world is
slowly learning the truth about the "peaceful" nature of Islam,
previously thought to be similar to any other religion, full of compassion
However, the picture that
emerges when the veneer of a handful of ‘mercy’ and ‘peaceful’
(actually, there are only three) verses are removed from the Qur’an
is terribly disturbing to any one who has the slightest of conscience in
him/her. It is impossible to be comfortable with Islam any more. Bit by
bit, the world is apprehending that, unless quickly diffused, a potential
catastrophic confrontation is looming in the horizon.
It will be a confrontation
between the civilized world and the barbarism, a war between humanity and
extreme fascism, a fight between freedom and slavery, an altercation
between People’s democracy and Allah’s dictatorship. It will be
extremely foolhardy to deny this truth.
The world, truly, is about to
be divided between the believers and the non-believers, between Muslims
and non-Muslims. Those PC politicians must come to terms with this
reality. We must face the truth that the present world is really facing a
prospective religious war in a wide scale It is Islam versus the world. I
do not know who will be the winner in this potential war. But I can tell
who will be the loser.
Yes, it will be the 1.2
billion hapless Muslims. It is not that they wanted this war to happen in
the first place. A small number of erudite Islamists, imbued with the
distorted vision of Pan Islamism and an unrelenting penchant to bring back
the seventh century barbarism in the space age of this twenty-first
century have pushed these ignorant and innocent Muslims, who have very
little idea about Islam, in the precipice of a cataclysm. A few more
Islamic bombs and some more Islamic terrorism in infidel lands will make
the world lose patience with Islam.
The humanity, no longer will
listen to their PC politicians and their kowtowing the Arabs and the
Muslim dictators for cheap oil. A time is fast approaching when the people
of these infidel countries will demand, with force, a significant change
in their constitutions and laws to bar the potential trouble makers (read
the Muslims) from reaching their shores.
They may even demand punitive
measures for those who abuse their liberal, secular attitude and aim to
establish Islamic Paradises in infidel lands and at the same time change
the culture of the West. You may dismiss my thought as a pure conjecture
and a complete utopia or even as a phobia, but do not forget: There is a
limit to every tolerance. There is a bound to every generosity. There is
an edge to everything. Once that limit is broken, people can, and will do
very unpleasant acts.
Let the Islamists get the real
message and at the same time get a life!
