Koran: Distinguishes Muslims from non-Muslims in a hierarchy of relative values

All the great religions of the world preach that all people are equal. Only Islam differs according to the status of the humans.

Thus, the power of the Koran makes clear that Islam is not a universal brotherhood. It is merely a brotherhood of believers:

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islamic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allah, that you may receive mercy. (49:10)
 

Not all people are equal in Islam. Slaves and disabled are not equal to healthy and free men (16:75-76). The Koran introduces the "Law of Equality", which sets different values of human life when looking at specific facts, such as the reimbursement of murder (2:178).

Muslim believers are never equal to non-Muslims:

Is one who is obedient to Allah, prostrating himself or standing (in prayer) during the hours of the night, fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the Mercy of his Lord (like one who disbelieves)?
Say: "Are those who know equal to those who know not?" It is only men of understanding who will remember (i.e. get a lesson from Allah's Signs and Verses). (39:9)
Say (O Muhammad): "Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?" Say: "(It is) Allah."
Say: "Have you then taken (for worship) Auliya' (protectors, etc.) other than Him, such as have no power either for benefit or for harm to themselves?"
Say: "Is the blind equal to the one who sees? Or darkness equal to light? Or do they assign to Allah partners who created the like of His creation, so that the creation (which they made and His creation) seemed alike to them."
Say: "Allah is the Creator of all things, He is the One, the Irresistible." (13:16)

And do not marry Al-Mushrikat (idolatresses, etc.) till they believe (worship Allah Alone). And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a (free) Mushrikah (idolatress, etc.), even though she pleases you. And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikun till they believe (in Allah Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater, etc.), even though he pleases you. Those (Al-Mushrikun) invite you to the Fire, but Allah invites (you) to Paradise and Forgiveness by His Leave, and makes His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to mankind that they may remember. (2:221)
 

The Koran clearly tells the Muslims that they are a preferred race, while those of other religions are "wicked"

You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun (disobedient to Allah - and rebellious against Allah's Command). (3:110)
 

As we shall see later, Allah condemns non-Muslims to hell, based only on their unbelief, while the faithful are rewarded with the best earthly comforts in the hereafter, including never-ending food, wine, and sex.

In the Gardens of delight (Paradise). (56:12)

A multitude of those (foremost) will be from the first generations (who embraced Islam). (56:13)

And a few of those (foremost) will be from the later time (generations). (56:14)

(They will be) on thrones woven with gold and precious stones, (56:15)

Reclining thereon, face to face. (56:16)

They will be served by immortal boys, (56:17)

With cups, and jugs, and a glass from the flowing wine, (56:18)

Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication. (56:19)

And fruit; that they may choose. (56:20)

And the flesh of fowls that they desire. (56:21)

And (there will be) Houris (fair females) with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious), (56:22)

Like unto preserved pearls. (56:23)

A reward for what they used to do. (56:24)

No Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk) will they hear therein, nor any sinful speech (like backbiting, etc.) (56:25)

But only the saying of: Salam!, Salam! (greetings with peace) ! (56:26)

And those on the Right Hand, - Who will be those on the Right Hand? (56:27)

(They will be) among thornless lote-trees, (56:28)

Among Talh (banana-trees) with fruits piled one above another, (56:29)

In shade long-extended, (56:30)

By water flowing constantly, (56:31)

And fruit in plenty, (56:32)

Whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off, (56:33)

And on couches or thrones, raised high. (56:34)

Verily, We have created them (maidens) of special creation. (56:35)

And made them virgins. (56:36)

Loving (their husbands only), equal in age. (56:37)

For those on the Right Hand. (56:38)

A multitude of those (on the Right Hand) will be from the first generation (who embraced Islam). (56:39)

And a multitude of those (on the Right Hand) will be from the later times (generations). (56:40)

 

A large part of the Koran is focused on distinguishing Muslims from non-Muslims and fighting non-Muslims. Among other things, non-Muslims are described as ill (2:10), liars (2:99), stupid (2:171) and deceptive (3:73).

The first Sura of the Koran is a short prayer, repeated by devout Muslims every day, ending with these words:

Guide us to the Straight Way (1:6)
The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). (1:7)
 

Muhammad was once asked whether these were Jews and Christians. His answer was, "Who else?" (Bukhari 56:662).

Since Allah makes such a strong distinction between Muslims and those outside of faith, it is only natural that Muslims should incorporate unequal treatment standards into their everyday lives. The Koran tells Muslims to be compassionate, but reckless for the unbelievers:

Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of (their) prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurat (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islamic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).
(48:29)
 

The Arabic word used to describe the ideal treatment of non-Muslims (shin-dal-dal) is the same word used in over 25 passages in the Koran to describe how painfully Allah made the hell.

Islamic law forbids formal Muslim charity (in the form of Zakat payment) to meet the needs of non-believers.

Allah intends that Muslims triumph over the unbelievers:

Those (hyprocrites) who wait and watch about you; if you gain a victory from Allah, they say: "Were we not with you," but if the disbelievers gain a success, they say (to them): "Did we not gain mastery over you and did we not protect you from the believers?" Allah will judge between you (all) on the Day of Resurrection. And never will Allah grant to the disbelievers a way (to triumph) over the believers. (4:141)
 

The only acceptable position of non-Muslims against Muslims is submission to Islamic rule:

Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (9:29)
 

A common critique of many Muslims is that they often behave arrogantly towards others. Now you know why.

 

The tribe of Banu Qaynuqa

Banu QaynuqaThe early part of the Koran came into being when Muhammad lived in Mecca, a city with very few Jews and Jewish tribes. At that time, he presented himself to the Meccans as a Jewish prophet based on the stories he had learned from the Jews he had learned during his travels - and from his cousin Waraqa to a converted Jew (The Koran actually refers to this charge , But "Allah" denies it).

When Muhammad moved to Medina there were already three Jewish tribes, whose good graces he first needed, because he and his small bonds of Muslim immigrants were too weak. He tried to convince these Jews that he was the last in the succession of their own prophets and even changed the Qibla (prayer direction) to Jerusalem, the center of the Jewish world.

The Jews in Medina were not impressed by the esoteric assertions of Muhammad, especially since there were obvious discrepancies between their Torah and his version of the same stories. (In the Koran, the Bible is immature in the Bible and sounds more like a series of fairy tales with the same superfluous morality - believing Muhammad's claims about himself or experiencing earthly destruction and eternal torment).

When he was asked why he had no proof of his prophethood by performing miracles like the prophets of the past, Muhammad came up with a prudent apology that there was no point in the past since the Jews were prophets anyway (Koran 3:183-184). Thus Muhammad had nothing to offer but his own testimony.

The Prophet of Islam did not treat the Jewish rejection well, especially since his people had relied heavily on his many claims to be a prophet in the same way like Moses, Abraham and Jesus. Muhammad "solved" his dilemma by claiming that the Jews of Medina were heretics, and that his version of the Torah is a fake, since it "did not contain the verses" that supported his claims to be a prophet. (Interestingly, in spite of the many Jews, who were either converted to Islam from either compulsion or free will, the "unadulterated" Torah never came to light, which supposedly existed).

After Muhammad's victory against the Meccans in Badr, his wealth and power was so far that he could take care of his "Jewish problem". The words of the Koran are markedly harder to the "people of the book" in the Medina part of the text, and it goes into confrontation.

Much got done by the "constitution" of Medina, but the treaty that Muhammad created for all local tribes upon his arrival got temporarily forgotten. The Muslims have often forgotten to cancel or annul a contract. However, this contract got canceled after less than two years:

While we were in the Mosque, the Prophet came out and said, "Let us go to the Jews" We went out till we reached Bait-ul-Midras. He said to them, "If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So, if anyone amongst you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle." (Bukhari 53:392)

 

After announcing his intentions, Muhammad sought an apology to take land from those Jews who refused to convert to Islam. His first goal was a tribe that had recently been in a conflict with the other two. Muhammad has correctly advised that the two other Jewish tribes would not come to support the Banu Qaynuqa tribe during a siege.

Muhammad's excuse has been an incident in which a Muslim was killed by the angry Jewish mob. The fact that the mob was furious because the Muslim in question had just murdered a Jewish merchant for the honor of a woman is sometimes denied by contemporary advocates of Islam who nevertheless admit that Muhammad decided to siege the Qaynuqa fort instead of his peaceful determination To agitation.

This point is important. According to Muslim historians, the first blood shed was when a Jew was murdered by a Muslim for playing a prank on a Muslim woman (by lifting her dress). The Muslim was killed in retaliation by those who had just witnessed the murder.

On what basis is physical violence - much less murder - justified by such a prank? Moreover, if Muhammad believed in the Old Testament law of the "eye for eye," why did he not recognize the legitimacy of the second killing against the inequality of the first?

In any case, the self-proclaimed prophet of God answered with a self-serving power against a people who had taken him into their community less than two years earlier. Unprepared for the battle, the Qaynuqa surrendered to their former guest without fighting.

Muhammad wanted to kill the entire tribe, but this was ruined by an Arab friend who was horrified by his intentions:

Abdullah b. Ubayy b. Salul went to him when God had put them in his power and said, "O Muhammad, deal kindly with my clients" (now they were allies of Khazraj), but the apostle put him off. He repeated the words, and the apostle turned away from him, whereupon he thrust his hand into the collar of the apostle's robe; the apostle was so angry that his face became almost black.
He said, "Confound you, let me go."
He answered, "No, by God, I will not let you go until you deal kindly with my clients. Four hundred men without mail and three hundred mailed protected me from all mine enemies; would you cut them down in one morning? By God, I am a man who fears that circumstances may change"
The apostle said, “You can have them.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 546)

Muhammad allowed the Jews of Qaynuqa to escape with what they could carry. He confiscated their wealth and their land, took a fifth for himself and gave the remaining to the rest of the Muslims. (According to the Koran, this was their punishment for those who do not believe in Muhammad. 3:10-12)

The man who saved the lives of the Jews was later called from Muhammad to be a hypocrite, and it is obvious that he deeply regretted his decision not to kill the Qaynuqa. One of the nine Koranic verses, which forbids Muslims taking Jews and Christians as friends, was "revealed" at this time.

Thus, Muhammad was able to fulfill his own promise that "Those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), they will be among the lowest (most humiliated)." (Koran 58:20), further strengthening his credibility among the Muslims and inspiring fourteen centuries of unrelenting jihad in his name to his followers.

 

How can teachers of religion and Muslim clubs counteract terrorism?

Quran SchoolHumans like normally living in peace. Cowards like hate preachers and terrorist leaders like only to empower themselves by hiding themselves behind holy scripts. These idiots even don't know the meaning and the full content of their own scripts the are preaching about. I think that nobody like that his children risks their lives for such stupid war preachers. Responsible people and teachers have to create the opposition to such eggheads for creating a better world in favor for our children. Only educated and critical thinking people can lead the world to a better place.

Support for "diagnose position"

Religious teachers, especially when they are well integrated into the teaching body, can be of assistance in the classification of certain phenomena. If it is to assess conspicuities, they are particularly suited to make a cautious initial assessment of the situation.

Religious knowledge as an immunization against extremist thought

In the analysis of the manipulative methods and in the Islamic arguments, why extremists go a complete misdirection, the key is where to begin the reconnaissance and prevention work first. In this, a work assignment point by point (see the immediately preceding questions) is to assert the interpretative authority over Islamic doctrine through elucidation and information, and to reject extremist thought.

Competence-oriented teaching supports maturity

A teaching style in which it is not only a question of making knowledge reproducible, but rather of developing solutions to it, helps young people to become more mature.

Critical lighting of conspiracy theories

Simplified justifications for complex problems and lump-sum blame assignments to persons or groups provide enemy images that can harm the peaceful coexistence and obscure the view on realistic solutions.

Make the spiritual side of religion experienceable

Behind religious rituals, their spiritual core must stand out. This strengthens the individual in the perception of his own potential and conveys an attitude of love to the world as God's creation, which must be preserved. Extremists, on the other hand, lose their "soul" because they kill this side at themselves.

Delimitation

Above all, groups which themselves prefer a very orthodox lifestyle are particularly challenged to distinguish ideologically from the extremists.

Deconstruction of "longing images" from the past

The extremists are working on an emotional level by addressing longing images of a transfigured early age of Islam. To present this Islamic early history historically more precisely in the Muslim education work helps to deconstruct false notions about the "caliphate".

Living the peace order of Islam

In their inner diversity Muslims agree on the peace order of their religion. These can best be pursued through personal effort, a jihad in the best sense, in their own environment. This also includes peaceful conflict resolution models. Violence begins in the family and in education, as well as in the mosque.

Prospects for own responsibillity for a fairer world

Young people must be taken seriously in their needs. The desire for justice for oppressed people in crisis regions can be positively channeled into options for participation in humanitarian programs, donations, and similar civil society and political activities.

Self Reflection

As already stated, sectarian phenomena can occur in a weakened form, even in "normal" social dynamics. The points "authority faith" and "selectivity" must be considered particularly self-critically. Own complexes due to being excluded from the pulpit: "As Muslims we are the better people" to deepen the complexes and prevent social cohesion in a pluralistic society. Rather, Muslims must take their overall social responsibility and make a positive contribution. Likewise, religious authorities must be careful not to strive towards an absolute bond to the dependence of the faithful, but rather to convey the idea of maturity as value.

Accepting religion as a private matter

All religions got created from peoples and for peoples. A real, almighty and omniscient God does not need humans for fulfilling his wishes. He has more possibilities than all humans together. So accept religion for the reason it got created - as the first law that humans should not kill each other in their greediness and power hungry behavior. The creators of the religion only used a God for avoiding endless discussions. The mighty ones from the ancient time have used and formed the religion into their own favor for increasing their own influence.

 

"Alarming" - Vienna: Every 3rd Muslim places religion above laws

Vienna, St. Stephen's CathedralThe results of a youth study commissioned by the City of Vienna on the topic of identity and radicalization are alarming: 27 percent of Muslim respondents reject the West and make their religion through the laws in force in Austria. Homosexuals and Jews are also denied.

On behalf of the City of Vienna, young people aged between 14 and 24 were interviewed. More than half of the young people are Muslim, 36 percent are Christians. There are two similarities: They are getting accustomed in youth centers and are from socially weak families. Therefore, the study is also not representative for Vienna. The numbers are speaking for themselves anyway.

59 percent of Muslims reject homosexuality. Among the Catholics there are 24%, the Christian-Orthodox 50%.

A total of 33% were negative about Jews. Among Muslims, anti-Semitism is seriously high (47%).

Female adolescents evaluate according to the survey of rare and less strong than male. Young people with higher education are also more tolerant. Clear correlations shown therefore between the tendencies of prejudice and concern for the future of vocational and scholastic education.

One focus of the study was the radicalization of the Muslim teenagers. 27% therefore sympathize with jihadism, affirmative violence and hostile to the West.

Should someone soothe that it is only 27%? These are those who are cared for in youth centers, how does it look with those who are not looked after? They openly reject the West. Why are not their applications for asylum rejected? Why these stupid Muslims have been going to a country which they hate and not respect the culture? What are they doing in Europe? What attracts them to the "unbelievers"?

It looks like these uneducated people don't know that they have to accept the local law and order of their host country. They like to take the system with them from which they have been escaping. It looks like they are so perverse and in need to get suppressed and cannot handle any freedom.

The city councilor Sandra Frauenberger said: "Young people talk about things, which they have not yet grown. No risk out of them, on the contrary, they are endangered. We must give protection".

In view of the results, Frauenberger now wants to consider how to reach those affected even more - so that they can defend themselves against the calls of radical adults. The instruments already exist, they should now be sharpened. Thus, topics such as anti-Semitism and homophobia are to be dealt with more strongly by young people.

In addition, young people who were previously difficult to reach, will be addressed by using their community. Especially young people from Chechnya or Afghanistan fall into this group, as it was called. The contact with the parents should get also intensified. The work has been coordinated since 2014 by the Viennese network for deradicalization and prevention.

27% it should be according to a much-publicized study in Vienna. So every fourth. Endangered to slide down in the violence, murder, terror, Jihad. Seduces and indoctrinated, but always voluntarily. Well, and since I now have a problem...

With the term "endangered". For example doctors without borders in war zones and areas of the disease are endangered for me. Or buddy's outdated mines. Or Red Cross workers in Iraq, in Syria. And more recently dealer in Manila.

But not every fourth Vienna Mohammedans, who whistles on integration, our culture neither accepted nor respected and is of the opinion that Islam must defend themselves against his "subjugation" by the "West" by all means. No, these people are not endangered. We are it. Their host country, their fellow citizens, their neighbors, perhaps even our friends.

Because these people, namely plain and poignant - are dangerous. This is the only correct term. But: Endangered sounds just less threatening as dangerous. And, of course, the old left-lined position is based on the fact that the victims are the perpetrators.

The survey, with the result that 27% of Muslims place religion above national laws is a confirmation of a similar survey from Germany. In Germany, naturalized migrants (i.e. German) Turkish origin were interviewed and the result was still devastating with 37%. For realists, there is no question in which direction the train will take in the future. The political leaders will find themselves again only in the history books if there will be this freedom still available.

These migrants are against the West and against the western culture. But they have no problem to take the money from unbelievers which they receive as social assistance. Send them back home if they are not happy here. Oh, yes, there the religion has already destroyed everything or is just happens now. Their rules do not work in their countries of origin (uprisings, civil war, etc.) and will also tear the Western World into the abyss.

But at some point must it even get the dumbest one, that the Western World is sitting on a powder drum where fuse is already burning a long time. The spiral of violence turns faster and faster since the Muslims arrived in the Western World.

 

Abducted, Abused, Discriminated

MuslimThat the Islam is getting only used from the uneducated ones for empowering themselves gets shown in the case from the Nigerian girl Aisha Moussa, who got kidnapped and converted under pressure to the Islam religion. That a conversion under force has no real value shows already the missing education of the Muslims and their barbarian style of living. Only idiots are thinking that the end justifies the means.

For ten months the Nigerian Aisha Moussa thought her life would end at any moment. The 15-year-old was abducted in February of last year of Boko Haram Islamic terrorist militia. One night the extremists invaded her village Gulak in the Federal State of Adamawa and kidnapped Aisha and other young Christians and brought them to a camp in Sambisa forest.

Aisha recalls: "I was buried up to the waist. So they wanted to force me to convert to Islam". After three weeks of torture, she gave up her resistance. She denied her Christian faith and was forcibly married to one of the fundamentalists - a man she estimates at the beginning of 30.

Many other girls and young women in the camp suffered a similar fate, says Aisha. "Some were just eight years old," she says. During the day they were forced to work in the camp. "But what we feared most was when our husbands returned in the evenings, because that meant abuse and rape," says Aisha. Tears run down her cheeks, when she recalls countless coercion in revolver holding in.

The terrorist group, which wants to establish a so-called "god-state" with a strict interpretation of Islamic law in the north-east of Nigeria and the neighboring areas and the neighboring countries of Cameroon, Niger and Chad, has been dragging away women and women for years. Similar to the crude ideology of the terrorist organization Islamic State (Daesh) in Iraq and Syria, Boko Haram calls the enslavement of women of different faith as a religious duty.

According to Amnesty International, at least 2,000 women and girls have been confined to the Islamists' captivity. They are forced to marry, kept as sex slaves, have to transport weapons or getting forced to suicide bombings.

The United Nations Humanitarian Affairs Coordinator in Nigeria, Fatma Samoura, believes that even up to 7,000 girls and women are in captivity of the terrorists. The world's most famous case is that of the more than 200 girls who were dragged from the dormitory of their school in the city of Chibok in northeastern Nigeria.

Aisha can can consider herself lucky. She is one of the few women who have managed to escape from the hands of the terrorists. After months of imprisonment, she slipped out of the camp one night and ran ten days through the forest until she reached the border to Cameroon. In the border town of Mora, Aisha was taken up by soldiers and taken to a refugee camp in Minawao.

There she has lived since the beginning of the year - but the other refugees still look at the girl with suspicions. "Boko Haram"women might be spies or suspected suicide bombers. "I'm treated as if I had a contagious disease," says Aisha. "When I come, the others turn away."

"We just can not trust these girls," says a security officer from the refugee camp who wants to remain anonymous. The mistrust is great, because Boko Haram forces more and more children to blow themselves up as an assassin. More than 40 minors committed suicide attacks in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad last year, according to the UN Children's Fund agency UNICEF. Three quarters from them were girls. In attacks and attacks by the group, at least 14,000 people have died since 2009.

According to UNICEF, the calculated use of minors has created an atmosphere of fear and suspicion. Especially girls who can escape the captivity of Boko Haram would be considered potential security risks and therefore excluded and discriminated. "One thing must be clear: these children are victims, not offenders," said the UNICEF Director for West and Central Africa, Manuel Fontaine. The children were systematically deceived and instrumentalised, according to Fontaine.

Despite the harsh treatment, Aisha is glad she is here. She feels safe in the refugee camp for the first time for years. Even in Gulak, before her abduction, she lived with her family in constant fear of terrorist attacks. What costs Aisha the sleep is the concern for her family in Nigeria. She fears that her parents and siblings might have been killed on the night of their kidnapping by the fighters. This concern was worse than anything that had happened to you in the past few months, Aisha said. "These thoughts kill me inwardly," she said.
