magical moment of a child’s birth brings wonderful excitement and
unswerving joy to the parent, opening the door of a new world of
crawling and babbling. As the baby learns to talk, walk and develop own
personalities, parents curiously watch every step and succumb in
storybooks to first day of school, many memories create an eternal bond
between parents and kids that only brings them closer to each other.
Children remain helpless with their innocent smiles until they can start
their own life. No human being can think of harming these children, let
alone killing these precious beings.
recent massacre in Beslan has stunned the whole world, raising many
questions about the teachings of Islam. There is no language that can
describe the sordid disaster of killing innocent children. Many Muslims
have vehemently condemned this heinous act and once again blamed those
animals as a few misguided Muslims who failed to understand the hidden
meanings of Islam. The so called “moderate Muslims” don’t
recognize that fundamentalists understand the fundamentals of Islam
better than they do.
true; there are some Ahadith that forbid killing of children during a
war. Mohammed himself ordered his gang to refrain from killing the
children when war was in progress. Here is one of those Ahadith that
forbids the killing.
Narrated Ibn 'Umar: During some of
the Ghazawat of Allah's messenger, a woman was found killed, so
Allah's messenger forbade the killing of women and children.
(The book of Jihad #3015, p 158)
someone gets an impression that Muhammad prohibited killing of children
out of love, he is making a serious mistake. Muhammad maintained a
double standard in treating Kafir and Muslim children. He wanted to save
those Kafir children for monetary gain and sell them as slaves. Women
prisoners were used for a special purpose, to satisfy horny Muslims.
When Muhammad talked about taking care of orphans, he meant Muslim
orphans, not some infidel children.
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri: When
the tribe of Bani Quraiza was ready to accept Sad's judgment, Allah's
messenger sent for Sad who was near to him. Sad came, riding a donkey
and when he came near, Allah's messenger said (to the Ansar),
"Stand up for your leader." Then Sad came and sat beside
Allah's messenger who said to him. "These people are ready to
accept your judgment." Sad said, "I
give the judgment that their warriors should be killed and their
children and women should be taken as prisoners." The
Prophet then remarked, "O Sad! You have
judged amongst them with (or similar to) the judgment of the King (Allah)."
(The book of Jihad #3043,
What a pathetic God?
Should women and innocent children be taken as prisoners and warriors
who already have surrendered be killed? In modern days people have made
rules how to treat the prisoners of wars humanly. The landmark decision
made in Geneva convention and General Assembly resolution 3318 directly
conflict with Allah’s judgment.
Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War:
17: No physical or mental torture, nor any other form of coercion,
may be inflicted on prisoners of war to secure from them information of
any kind whatever.
on the Protection of Women and Children in Emergency and Armed Conflict
Proclaimed by General Assembly resolution 3318(XXIX) of 14 December
All forms of
repression and cruel and inhuman treatment of
women and children, including
imprisonment, torture, shooting, mass arrests, collective
punishment, destruction of dwellings and forcible eviction, committed by
belligerents in the course of military operations or in occupied
territories shall be considered criminal.
These manmade decisions are
superior to what Muhammad did to his misfortunate prisoners and makes
Allah look like a criminal. If Islamic laws replaced international laws,
the outcome will be a regression to barbarity.
remains, despite the first hadith where Muhammad prohibited killing the
women and children why did those Islamists in Beslan slaughtered
hundreds of children? The answer can be found in the following hadith:
As-Sab bin Jathama : the prophet passed by me at a place called Al-Abwa
or Waddan, and was asked whether it was permissible to attack Al-Mushrikun
warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and
children to danger. The prophet replied, “They
(i.e., women and children) are from them (i.e., Al-Mushrikun).”
(The book of Jihad #3012, p157)
are from them.”
Is this attitude befitting of
a prophet of God? It’s a clear message to kill non-Muslim children, an
obnoxious ruling from a psychopath and the beloved prophet of a billon
Muslims. This hadith not only allows Muslims to slaughter non-Muslim
children, it is also a racist remark.
Rules change. The game remains the same!
children are captured in a Ghazawat*,
they become prisoners and converted into slaves. However, permission is
given to kill non-Muslim children when Muhammad’s gangsters are
engaged in an incursion or out there for regular looting.
embarrassing denial of “moderate Muslims” will not wash the
blood-soaked hands of Islamists, nor will Islam look any better. It’s
time to acknowledge the truth and face Islam with honesty, if any
honesty is there among the Muslims.
