The Koran and the life of the prophet Mohammed

From WikiIslam
 
The story of Jyllands-Posten’s Muhammad cartoons started with the book, “The Koran and the life of the prophet Mohammed” by Kåre Bluitgen.[1]

On 17 September 2005, the Danish newspaper Politiken ran an article under the headline “Dyb angst for kritik af islam” (“Deep fear of criticism of Islam”).

The article discussed the difficulty encountered by the writer Kåre Bluitgen, who was initially unable to find an illustrator who was prepared to work with Bluitgen on his children’s book “Koranen og profeten Muhammeds liv” (“The Qur’an and the prophet Muhammad’s life”). Three artists declined Bluitgen’s proposal before an artist agreed to assist anonymously. According to Bluitgen:

One artist declined, with reference to the murder in Amsterdam of the film director Theo van Gogh, while another declined, citing the attack on the lecturer at the Carsten Niebuhr Institute in Copenhagen.

In October 2004, a lecturer was assaulted by five assailants who opposed the lecturer’s reading of the Qur’an to non-Muslims during a lecture at the Niebuhr institute at the University of Copenhagen.

Allah In The Classroom — The ABC’s Of Forced Conversion

The Silent Soldier

November 6, 2014

Our children are our world as parents. They are the future of our nation. Most of us would gladly sacrifice all we have and our lives for our little ones. So, why do we so readily hand their learning and their care over to those that would abuse them and trick them into being part of the greatest evil the world has ever known? It figures that the young, innocent ones would be a prime target for Islam and are what they term, ‘fertile ground’ for their broken philosophy. Between such programs as Common Core, Connect All Schools and CSCOPE, CAIR has been ensuring that the textbooks that teach our children go out of their way to teach Islamic history and to have the children indoctrinated into Islam. CAIR has even gotten textbooks in private schools, charter schools and home schooling programs to include their revisionist…

ISIS

I’ve been reading the book “ISIS: The New Face of Terror” by Jay Alan Sekulow. Below are a few excerpts from the book. ~Angel~

9781501105159_p0_v4_s260x420

p. 7-8

ISIS is brutal beyond imagination to anyone – Christian, Jew, Yazidi, and even Shiite Muslims – who is not aligned with its jihadist form of Sunni Islam. In Syria, ISIS has slaughtered Shiites, Christians, and Alawites. In Iraq it has done the same, giving Christians in conquered territories a chilling ultimatum: “Convert, leave your homes, or die.”

Tens of thousands of Christians have fled. ISIS fighters have marked their homes and businesses in much the same way that Nazis marked the Jews of Germany and occupied lands, using an Arabic symbol that has come to mean “Nazarene”…They have sold Christian women as sex slaves, and there are numerous reports that they’ve beheaded children.

Islamic Depictions of Mohammed in Full

Mohammed Images

Also see

Medieval Muslim artists often created paintings and illuminated manuscripts depicting Mohammed in full. Several examples are presented here. Other artists of the era drew Mohammed, but left his face blank so as to technically comply with a sporadically enforced Islamic ban on depicting the Prophet; these faceless images are shown in the second section of the Archive.

In 1999, Islamic art expert Wijdan Ali wrote a scholarly overview of the Muslim tradition of depicting Mohammed, which can be downloaded here in pdf format. In that essay, Ali demonstrates that the prohibition against depicting Mohammed did not arise until as late as the 16th or 17th century, despite the media’s recent false claims that it has always been forbidden for Muslims to draw Mohammed. Until comparatively recently in Islamic history, it was perfectly common to show Mohammed, either in full (as revealed on this page), or with his face hidden (as shown on the next page). Even after the 17th century, up to modern times, Islamic depictions of Mohammed (especially in Shi’ite areas) continued to be produced.

On this page are many examples of full-faced Mohammed portraits produced by Muslim artists across the centuries. Attributions for each image are given where known.


Illustration showing Mohammed (on the right) preaching his final sermon to his earliest converts, on Mount Ararat near Mecca; taken from a medieval-era manuscript of the astronomical treatise The Remaining Signs of Past Centuries by the Persian scholar al-Biruni; currently housed in the collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris (Manuscrits Arabe 1489 fol. 5v). This scene was popular among medieval Islamic artists, and several nearly identical versions of this drawing (such as this one [shown in detail below] and this one) were made in the Middle Ages.

The Little Green Book | Fatawah of the Ayatollah Khomeini

Introduction

IslamicHolyWar

The Little Green Book is a collection of fatawah handed down by the most prominent and arguably one of the most influential Muslim clerics in modern history; the Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Mosavi Khomeini [سید روح‌اللّه مصطفوی موسوی خمینی], commonly known as the Ayatollah Khomeini. Fatawah  فتاوى  (the plural of fatwa) are Islamic religious decrees sent down by Muslim religious leaders. Since Islam demands that Muslims abide by Sharia – Islamic law as individuals and as a society, these fatawah are not simply religious insights or advice. They are legal pronouncements, and define the law of the land in an Islamic country. In his unrivaled role as Iran’s Supreme Leader and the highest-ranking cleric for Shi’a Muslims, the Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatawah guided the lives of more Shi’a Muslims than did any other Islamic leader throughout history.

It would have been damning to Islam if these inane, absurd, and depraved rantings had come from any Muslim, since they would serve as an example of how Islam corrupts a person’s mind. Beyond that however, anyone who takes the time to analyze Islam’s scriptures and what is recorded in Islam about Muhammad, the man whose life sets the standard to which Muslims are to strive, will see that the Ayatollah Khomeini was not off-base in his Islamic jurisprudence.

Damning souls and working with Satan never seems to bring out smiles. Sneers and leers, but not smiles.

This version of The Little Green Book, is a translation done by Harold Salemson, whose source was a French translation of the Ayatollah’s fatawah compiled by a Persian named Jean-Marie Xaviere. The book is broken up into two volumes. The first volume deals with governing issues, and is so chock full of amazing quotes, we had to give up on trying to highlight the best ones. The second volume focuses on lifestyle guidelines, and tends to be a bit mundane. However, some of the more astoundingly reprehensible whoppers are in this section. Additionally, the emphasis placed on defining even the most miniscule details for a Muslim to follow serve as a tremendous example of how Islam thrives on replacing every last iota of independent thought with mindless servitude. Of course, this should not come as a surprise to anyone, since the religion’s name literally means “Submission” (Islam), and its followers refer to themselves as “those who submit” (Muslims).

The Little Green Book is a quick read. In fact, it’s probably shorter than some of Craig Winn’s email responses. Additionally, much of it is so absurd, it’s quite entertaining. That is, until you realize that this isn’t a joke and you remember that billions of people are affected by these fatawah and thousands more like them from multitudes of other Islamic leaders.

Tea with Terrorists

Tea with Terrorists

Who They Are and Why They Kill

The novel that exposes the real source of terror … not Osama Bin-Laden, not Al-Qaeda, not some radical fringe group of extremists, but Islam itself.
 
Book Cover
 
On September 11, America was forced to wake up and face a new enemy. With flags waving and righteous indignation burning in our hearts, we marched out to wage war on terror. There was only one problem: we had no idea who we were fighting, or why.

We still don’t.

Tea With Terrorists is a novel set three years in the future. Winn and Power have crafted a taut thriller, equal parts spine-tingling action and bone-jarring truth. Its message is haunting and controversial: the source of terror is Islam… not a radical fringe group, not some fanatical terrorist organization. Islam itself.

Winn and Power went to the source, daring to meet face to face with terrorists: al Qaeda, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad – an encounter faithfully recounted in the title chapter. They probed the murky waters of Islamic scripture and history. Rich with detail and buttressed with documentation both ancient and modern, Tea with Terrorists may be a work of fiction, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

Angel’s Divine Recommendations of the Week

MOVIES

flypaper-dvd-cover-95From Wikipedia

Flypaper is a crime screwball comedy film that stars Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd, and Matt Ryan and directed by Rob Minkoff.

A obsessive compulsive but brilliant man named Tripp is caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies at a bank. One crew is more professional and high tech while the other crew consists of two humorously dumb men with explosives who call themselves Peanut Butter and Jelly. The movie’s tone is a screwball mystery farce with all the actors playing their bits just a bit over the top. The interplay between the two gangs is quite humorous with them comparing FBI ratings at one point in the movie.

Book Description

When you realize the true nature of Islam, you may want to persuade others. Then you discover that they have their minds filled with the “establishment” version of Islam and give you their justifications that support it.

This book is written for those who want to be effective in persuading others about the true nature of Islam. You learn the powerful method of fact-based reasoning. Since 9/11 these methods have been used to change the minds of supporters of Islam from all political backgrounds. Anyone, whether they are liberals, progressives, leftists or conservatives, can all be persuaded to see the truth in light of the facts about Islam.

Since the methods used in this book are based on the sacred source texts of Islam, those who have read the Trilogy of Koran, Sira and Hadith will obtain the full benefit. Others can learn from the examples, but the more facts you have, the better your results.

If you want to understand the Trilogy, go to either A Taste of Islam or Primary Doctrine Books or Self-Study Courses on Islam where you can learn about Islam’s doctrine.
