Obama as yet again come to the side of Islam and defended the religion, saying that ISIS does not represent true Islam. Obama said:
So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day.
For those of you who may stupidly believe Obama, I would like to present true Islam to the president, and illustrate that it is not just of the same violent nature, but in many ways worse than ISIS.
As we wrote in a former article, ISIS believes in the ritual of human sacrifice, where they shed the blood of their victims with the belief that it will appease Allah. In one instance an ISIS fighter slaughtered a number of Iraqi soldiers, and before killing them, said this prayer:
In defense of the Sunnis O Lord, O Lord, We bring these offerings to you, O Lord. Please accept this sacrificial offering, O Lord. O Lord, accept this from us, accept this from us. In the name of Allah. Bismillah (In the name of Allah). Allahu Akbar
ISIS is simply following the Islamic belief in human sacrifice as it was illustrated by the Islamic figure, Khalid Abdullah al-Kasri, who ritually sacrificed Jaad bin Durham in the place of an animal on the Islamic holiday of The Festival of Sacrifice. He dragged Durham into a mosque, and before spilling his blood, proclaimed:
O people, sacrifice, Allah accepted your sacrifices. I am now sacrificing Jaad bin Durham.
Tell me, Obama, does al-Kasri misrepresent true Islam? Or what about all of the Islamic authorities, Al-Shafi’, Ibin Tayymiya, Bukhari, Dhahabi, Ibin Al-Qiyam, Darami and Ibin Katheer, who accept the story as orthodox?
One of the greatest figures in Islamic history is the great Mamluk warlord, Baibars, who is most famously known for defeating the Mongols. Baibars butchered and tyrannized the entire Christian population of Antioch, slaughtering priests, selling women, destroying crosses and churches, ripping up Bibles, and feeling very proud about doing such evil. Tell me, Obama, did Baibars, who is praised by the entire Muslim world as a hero, misrepresent true Islam when he, with great boasting, wrote these words to the Christian leader of Antioch, Bohemond VI, of his bloodshed:
Death came among the besieged from all sides and by all roads: we killed all that thou hadst appointed to guard the city or defend its approaches. If thou hadst seen thy knights trampled under the feet of the horses, thy provinces given up to pillage, thy riches distributed by measures full, the wives of thy subjects put to public sale; if thou hadst seen the pulpits and crosses overturned, the leaves of the Gospel torn and cast to the winds, and the sepulchres of thy patriarchs profaned; if thou hadst seen thy enemies, the Muslims, trampling upon the tabernacle, and immolating in the sanctuary, monk, priest and deacon; in short, if thou hadst seen thy palaces given up to the flames, the dead devoured by the fire of this world, the Church of St Paul and that of St Peter completely and entirely destroyed, certainly thou wouldst have cried out “Would to Heaven that I were become dust!”
Today ISIS desecrates churches, slaughters Christians, sells Christian women, destroys Christian images and crosses, and invades Christian areas. Tell me, Obama, how they are different from the Muslims of the past.
Was Zyad bin Haritha, one of the closest companions to Muhammad, misrepresenting Islam when he took Umm, an old woman, and split her body in two by tying her to two moving camels? As the Hadith witnesses:
Allah’s Messenger sent Zayd to Wadi Qura, where he encountered the Banu Fazarah. Some of his Companions were killed, and Zayd was carried away wounded. Ward was slain by the Banu Badr. When Zayd returned, he vowed that no washing should touch his head until he had raided the Fazarah. After he recovered, Muhammad sent him with an army against the Fazarah settlement. He met them in Qura and inflicted casualties on them and took Umm Qirfah prisoner. He also took one of Umm’s daughters and Abdallah bin Mas’adah prisoner. Zyad bin Harithah ordered Qays to kill Umm, and he killed her cruelly. He tied each of her legs with a rope and tied the ropes to two camels, and they split her in two. (Tabari Vol.8:Page.96)
By this account, ISIS was completely in accordance with Islam when they took a young Christian boy in Baghdad in cut his body in half, just not so long ago.
Jihadists in have participated the drinking of Christian blood, but how is this so different from what Muhammad did, when he taught his followers to drink his blood in order to obtain salvation.
Malik ibn Sinan drank his [Muhammad’s] blood on the Day of Uhud and licked it up. The Prophet allowed him to do that and then said, “The [Hell] fire will not touch you.” …and “Abdullah ibn az Zubayr drank his cupped blood. The Prophet said, “Woe to you from the people and woe to the people from you.” But he did not object to what he had done.
Abu Saad Khodri who stated in a strong Hadith in Sharh Hayat al-Sahaba, regarding partaking in the blood of Mohammed:
When, at the battle of Uhud, the helmet-rings had been taken out of the Prophet’s cheek, blood flowed from the radiant face of that Lord of the pure, and my father Malik Ibn Sinan sucked the wounds with his mouth, swallowing the blood. When they said to my father, “Malik, is blood to be drunk?” my father replied, “Yes, the blood of the Prophet of God I drink like a beverage.” At that time his Excellency, the Prophet, said, “Whoever wishes to see one who has mixed my blood with his own, let him look at Malik Ibn Sinan: any one whose blood touches mine, him the fire of hell shall not desire.”
Is Al-Azar University also misrepresenting Islam when he decreed that it was permissible to eat the flesh of enemies of Islam, putting in Egyptian high school curriculum “that those who don’t pray can be grilled & then eaten”, when in fact one of the most reputable authorities of Sunni Islam, Shafie, declared that it was permissible to cannibalize? For Shafie wrote:
One may eat the flesh of a human body. It is not allowed to kill a Muslim nor a free non-Muslim under Muslim rule (because he is useful for the society), nor a prisoner because he belongs to other Muslims. But you may kill an enemy fighter or an adulterer and eat his body (716 in volume 1, Al-Kortoby)
Is Obama going to go on the air and proclaim Shafie as not representing Islam? It would never happen, for to do so would mean receiving the hatred of the whole Sunni world.
ISIS is true Islam, and to learn more, you can read Walid Shoebat’s article on this very issue, here.
