When Muslims wave those signs declaring that "Islam will dominate the world", where do they get that idea? The concept comes from the title of a topic in Ibn Kathir's Tafsir. Ibn Kathir was an expert who learned Islam's canon from experts. His tafsir is the most widely accepted[Biography at Wikipedia.]
- The Good News that Muslims will conquer the Known World, and ultimately the Entire World
- The Good News that Muslims will Dominate the People of the Book
- The Good News that Islam shall prevail
Chapter O9.0: Jihad
(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.
``We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.''
The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as:
-1- ``Fighting is prescribed for you'' (Koran 2:216);
-2- ``Slay them wherever you find them'' (Koran 4:89);
-3- ``Fight the idolators utterly'' (Koran 9:36);
and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
``I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah'';
and the hadith reported by Muslim,
``To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.''Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.) http://www.crusadersarmory.co.cc/RelianceO9-0.html
Why jihad? Because Allah commands it in Surah al-Anfal 39 & Surah at-Taubah 29. Moe confirmed the commands in Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.
- The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr
- The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
- The Order for Jihad against the Disbelievers, the Closest, then the Farthest Areas
- The Order for Jihad against the Disbelievers and Hypocrites
O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).
The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi' (y21), 6.48-49) ).
Why would Allah issue such commandments? Ostensibly to save the world from temporal strive and eternal damnation by bringing them "with chains on their necks until they embrace Islam"; to make Islam "superior" & dominant. [9:33, Sahih Bukhari 4.52.65 ]. The real reason is not buried too deep. Nobody else will show you this, but I will because I want you to know the truth.[Emphasis added.]
33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.
2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.
Who gets the spoils? Allah and his Messenger. How much loot can an idol eat or spend? Got that clue yet? Moe gets the first 20%, off the top, his pick; that includes captive women. Allah promised them abundant spoils which they would capture, and caused them to "inherit" their victims' real and personal property, plus their widows and orphans. Allah gave Moe special dispensation to accrue spoils because he saw Moe's weakness and humility.
President Bush spoke of a "war of Ideas" but never specified the ideas. I will. 234 years ago our founders made a crucial declaration of the rights of man.
Islam has some incompatible ideas: Only Allah has the right to be worshiped, Only Allah has the right to rule and Muslims are obligated to enforce Allah's rights.
In 8:67, quoted above, Allah identifies Moe's motivation: ransom money, and his own: great slaughter. If our eyes and minds are open, that tells us everything we need to know about Islam Why did Walid Shoebat say "it can not be tolerated, it can not be allowed? What will you do about it? You have knowledge which you lacked before. Will you share that knowledge with others by sending them a link to this blog post? Will you demand that Islam be proscribed by law through the International Qur'an Petition? If not us, who; if not now, when?
