Its Shari'ah, Stupid #13

This is the thirteenth in a series on Jihad in Fiqh.

Molla Khosrew, d. 1480, hanafi. Kitab al-Gihad, övers. Nicola Melis, Trattato sulla guerra (Cagliari, Italien 2002), s. 95-6.
[…] jihad is a fard al-kifaya, that is, that one must begin the fight against the enemy, even when he [the enemy] may not have taken the initiative to fight, because the Prophet […] early on […] allowed believers to defend themselves, later, however, he ordered them to take the initiative at certain times of the year, that is, at the end of the haram months, saying, ”Kill the idolaters wherever you find them” (Q9:5). He finally ordered fighting without limitations, at all times and in all places, saying, ”Fight those who do not believe in God, and in the Last Day” (Q9:29); there are also other [similar] verses on the subject. This shows that it is a fard al-kifaya.


He finally ordered fighting without limitations, at all times and in all places
Got a clue yet? Islam ain't peaceful! Islam is violent by design, Jihad is the standard, not a deviation from standard Islam.

Ben,

The way you sling all this hash around, one gets an impression you really admire the twisted calls (you see) to kill and make war.

Given that you do not understand or follow Jesus Christ's teachings-

'love thy neighbor',
to 'turn the other cheek',
the teachings of the Beatitudes,
the teachings of the two Greatest Laws (Matthew 22:36-40) and Christ's Commandment (John 12:47,48)


So just to which messages/teachings of Jesus do you adhere?


Given so much of JC's teachings that _you_ do not listen to, hear, understand nor follow, why do you waste your time calling yourselves Christians?

Would it not be easier on you to join Mohammad's follower. This way you do not have to try to square your circle of hate/war with JC's preachings of love/peace.

It is absolutely clear nothing you call for in your writings here is within the realm of JC's teaching. (Objurgation, it is doubtful you would welcome JC in to your house of worship or anything else you do.)

Your hate filled calls for mass killings of unarmed people are your way of emulating JC how?

So make life easy on yourself. Do not call yourself a Christian.

Ben,

The state department isn't the only high-profile readership in the game lately, looks like we now have some fans in the Department of Homeland Security. Copy and paste this link into your browser to see for yourself:
