A complaint against, Part III, Rebuttal by Zameer Ahmed Jumlana

Continues from Part II

Submitted by Ali Sina on Tue, 01/26/2010 - 10:10

Dear Ali Sina
I am in receipt of your E-mail in response to my instantaneous rebuttal against your Anti Islamic propaganda.

Of course you are a person of immense knowledge with a talented ability to frame heroes as villains or vice versa.

As per your Web-site you are an Ex – Muslim. Do you not find any faith/Religion worthy enough to be practiced and propagated by you?

The impression I got is that you still believe that Islam is the true Religion/faith and it is Islam Vs. None. That prompted you to propagate Anti Islamic and Anti Muslim views.

In last let me concede that I m an idiot learner. Even in my childhood days I learned through the stick not by the teacher. So, I will continue to enlighten myself about Islam through your Anti Islamic Website

Zameer Ahemd Jumlana

Dear Mr. Jumlana,

Thank you for your response. Let me correct you right off the bat that I am not a person of immense knowledge. I have an insight into the mind of Muhammad and that is what I am sharing. It resonates with my readers because it is based on facts. My knowledge is far less than most Islamic scholars who have memorized the Quran since childhood and have spent years in the madrassa reading the hadith, all the tafseers and the fiqh. I had never read the Quran since I was way into my adult life. The difference is that I read it with an inquisitive mind and they read it as believers. Therefore, I saw things that they overlook.

No one can frame a hero as a villain or vice versa. You can only deceive people who want to be deceived. Dr, Zakir Naik is an expert in deception. He has the ability to make Muslims believe that the most asinine verses of the Quran are miracles. However, he cannot fool non-Muslims. In my online book, The World’s Greatest Showman, dedicated to him I have shown that virtually every statement Dr. Naik makes is a lie. Deception is only self deception.

The reason my writings are read is because I am fair. I can be wrong, but I never deliberately try to deceive my readers. I refrain from making claims that I cannot prove. I present facts as facts and questions as questions and when in doubt I say so.

As for religions I really don’t have any preference. I am an atheist humanist but I don’t think atheism makes people any better or is the solution to world problems.

I am not a believer because I do not see any evidence of the existence of God. By “God” I mean the god of religions. The creation can be easily explained with evolution and I see no evidence of a hearing, seeing caring God. I believe in a principle that underlies the universe.

Over 200,000 innocent people lost their lives in Haiti and the most vulnerable people on Earth are often hit by similar calamities. Where is God?

Does God see our suffering and does not care? Does he see it, wants to help but he can’t? Or maybe, he does not know what is happening. Therefore, he is callous, impotent or ignorant. Such God does not deserve our worship.

Suffering does not end with human misery. It is woven into the fabric of the universe. Why should any loving God design the world in such a way that the sustenance of some creatures must necessity depend on the destruction of the lives of many others? The most cynical part is that these creatures that are destined to be food are endowed with senses and feelings. They suffer excruciating pains before becoming snacks and those who survive them suffer untold sorrow. When a deer loses her calf, her anguish is no less than the anguish we humans feel for the loss of our children. If truly this universe is designed by a god, he must be utterly cruel.

Jews and Christians reason that the suffering in the world is the result of Adam and Eve’s disobedience. This belief is rehashed in the Quran also. By doing so they are in effect acknowledging that God is unjust. How can a just and loving god, punish thousands of generations and millions of species in land and sea because one couple ate an apple without permission? Is this punishment commensurate with the offence? Is it fair that entire world suffer because one guy stole an apple? And we are supposed to believe that such god is wise, just and forgiving?

Because our foolish progenitors could not control their stomach, God kicked them out of paradise, unleashed Satan to prey on their descendants and made all creatures devour each other. And we are supposed to, day and night worship this insane god and praise his justice, mercy and compassion.

Why do we humans want to fool ourselves? Well, it is because we need to believe. A couple of months ago my sister found out that her daughter had a tumour in her brain that required the most dangerous surgery. Her life was shattered. The Doctors told her to be ready for the worse or the possibility that she could become blind. She called me and said, please pray. I said, you know I don’t believe in prayers. She said that she needs to believe.

I was devastated by the news. I wanted to do something. But what? I wanted to ask someone to please take me instead. But I felt helpless. It was then that I saw that believers are blessed. They can cling to a god and keep their hope alive. I wish I could believe too, but I can’t.

If you can believe in God, you should. Believers are happier in general. It is comforting to believe someone listens to your prayers, takes care of you and will not abandon you in the dark moments of your life. The belief in God is placebo. Sometimes placebos save life. Placebo works as long as you don’t know the truth about it. Alas, I know the truth about God.

However, despite being an atheist I often preach God to those whom I believe will benefit from it. I live in a Christian country so I preach Christianity. I used to go to a Church. Some churches are really good. Unlike mosque that is saturated with anger and hate there is often happiness and friendship in the air. There is nothing wrong in believing in God as a helping hand and as long as that belief brings out the best of you.

But be wary of the downside of belief too. A few days ago, famous American televangelist
Pat Robertson said the deadly Haitian earthquake that killed over 200,000 people was God's vengeance for a "pact" Haitians swore to the Devil to set them free from slavery over 200 years ago. Since then, he said, Haiti has been cursed by "one thing after the other."

What is the message in this remark? That God wanted the blacks to remain slaves. They had to enlist the help of Devil to gain their freedom, which angered God who has been hitting those helpless people ever since with one curse after another.

Why would God want to keep the blacks in slavery? Assuming the ancestors of Haitian made a pact with Devil, those guys are dead. Why would a sane God punish their descendants? And more importantly, why should anyone help someone whom God has cursed and wants to punish?

The Quran is full of stories like this. The destruction of Aad by Allah is one such story. Muhammad was not a rational person to realize attributing such thing to God is attributing insanity to the Creator. He was an ignorant man with little intelligence. He believed in every absurdity he heard and parroted it in his own book.

As long as God means hope, it is good. Life without hope is hell. If the love of God makes you a Mother Theresa, there is nothing wrong in it. Whether God exists or not, is secondary. The teachings of Jesus are good. But when the belief in God becomes an excuse to hate, it is evil. Let me explain this with an example.

I generally don’t buy lottery tickets. I know the chance of winning is so low that I rather have a cup of coffee with my two bucks (or toony, as we call it in this part of the world). However, when the jackpot grows larger than 20 million dollars I buy a ticket. The chance of winning has not increased, and I don’t really count on winning. However, this allows me to dream for a few days. I think to myself what would I do with millions of dollars? Maybe I expand, publish literatures in all languages and help Muslims all over the world to leave Islam, maybe I make a movie about Muhammad, and for sure I would take my old parents to a cruise around the world. I buy a ticket, to dream. However, it would be lunacy if I spend my life saving on lottery tickets considering it an investment.

We humans need to dream and have hopes. If the belief in God gives you hope, there is nothing wrong in it. The problem is that some people take that belief too seriously  They wage war in the name of God, discriminate against others, murder people, or just write to police and try to take people’s freedom of speech away from them. Some even blow up their own bodies. They do all these with clear conscience and convinced to be right.

Muslims are told Jihad is the fastest way to heaven. This is lunacy. Muhammad lied. It is this lie that I am trying to expose. But to do that I have to show that he was a liar and his entire message is a lie. It is okay to believe in God, but don’t bet your life on it.

No Sir! I don’t believe Islam is the true religion. I believe all religions have a kernel of truth in then except Islam. There is goodness in every religion, but there is none in Islam. I believe Islam is the most diabolic belief ever invented. It is far more dangerous than Nazism. Islam is evil. It is sheer darkness. It is a curse on humanity.

If I believed in God and his divine comedy I would have said Islam is the instrument of Satan to destroy mankind, but since I am a rationalist, I believe Muhammad was a pathological narcissist. That man was insane. I invite you to read my book and evaluate my evidence. You be the judge.

I promote the truth about Islam because it is a threat to the world. In my previous response to you I showed how Islam was the inspiration behind the evil movements that devastated the world. Today, we are facing a bigger danger. If Nazism, Communism, fascism, inquisition, and Mafia were inspired by Islam, today, it is Islam itself that has raised its ugly head to destroy mankind. Islam is the mother of all evils. All good people of the world, whether they believe in God or not, must unite and slay this beast.

As to your last point, let me assure you that you are not an idiot. Bertrand Russell said, the problem with the world is that fools are always sure and wise people are full of doubt. The very fact that you would say such thing is proof that you belong to the latter group. I receive plenty of emails from fools and idiots who write to threaten me with the torments in the grave and hellfire, but have nothing to say in defence of Islam. You are not one of them.

PS. Some people wrote to express their concern about my niece. Thanks for your concerns. The operation was a success and my beautiful niece is completely fine. Thank God! ;-)

A complaint against, Part II, Rebuttal by Zameer Ahmed Jumlana

Continues from Part I         

Dear Mr. Ali Sina,

I have just checked your reply to my e-mail to Commissioner of Police, Delhi regarding your website.

I had sent this complaint to police as an Indian National not as a Muslim only. Noted Painter M.F. Hussain is living in exile due to his condemnable naked paintings of Hindu God & Goddesses. And criminal cases are pending against him all over India for hurting the sentiments of Hindu Community.

Before making a Para wise reply to your email there are a few questions which comes out in my mind instantaneously while going through your email.

- Whether girl child were buried alive in Arabs during pre-Prophet era or not?
- Do the women have any right in property in pre-Prophet era?
- Who destroyed the Mosques in Spain, Russia & China?
- Who is responsible for Tianamin Square Massacre in China?
- Do the Israeli and Mynmar governments are not violating human rights?

All I want to say that it is the so called followers of each and every faith and religion had committed atrocities and human right violations against the preaching of their respective religions. Do their religions (code of conduct) can be blamed for their sinful acts?

Dear Mr. Sina, Anybody can practice any faith but I dissent with you that one have any right to abuse/distort the preaching’s of any religion/ex-religion. I have sincere intention to convince you and your website visitors to bring them back in the fold of Islam.

Yours, Zameer Ahmed Jumlana

Dear Mr. Zameer Ahmed Jumlana,
Thank you for your reply. It was a pleasant surprise to hear from you. Generally, I don’t hear back from Muslims. They throw a stone and run. So let me commend your integrity.

As for respecting other people’s belief, please understand that it is a fallacy. Beliefs don’t have to be respected. No belief is sacrosanct, above criticism or even ridicule. This is the only way we humans advance our understanding. All beliefs, whether scientific, religious or philosophical must be open to probing and criticism. If a belief demands respect and cannot tolerate criticism that belief has to be criticized vehemently.

Prosecuting or threatening an artist for disrespecting someone’s belief is sickening. However, let us be fair. Hindus were not originally violent and intolerant. Generally speaking they still are the most tolerant people. If you see a group of Hindus are becoming radicalized it is because they are reacting to Islamic aggression. The violence and the intolerance that you see in some Hindus is not part of their religious teaching, it is their reaction to Islamic violence. In a sense, they are inspired by the violence of Islam. You can call them "Muslim Hindus" or "Islamized Hindus."

In his book
Holy Warriors: Islam and the Demise of Classical Civilization John O’Neill argues that much of Christian violence, such as Crusades and inquisition were the influences of Islam on the Church. Many of the secret societies, like the Shriners, The Rosicrucians, the Freemasons, the illuminati and even the Mafia owe their organizational structure to Ismail sect of Islam and its order of Assassins. Also communism is inspired by Islam. The concept of a world government under one dictator that is the core of Marxism is an adaptation of caliphate. Nazism also owes its world view to Islam. Muhammad told his followers that they are superior because of their faith. Hitler advocated the superiority of a race. On several occations Hitler expressed his admiration for Muhammad.

Thoughts are viral. We humans influence each other’s thinking. Ideas pass from one person to another. They mutate in their new habitat and adapt to the circumstances.

In his book
The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History Michael H. Hart ranks Muhammad at the top of all the people who influenced the world. I do not dispute that claim. However, I also recognize that that influence has been the cause of much evil on Earth. Hundreds of millions of deaths, directly or indirectly, are owed to the influence of Muhammad on the world. When Christians say the world is ruled by the Prince of Darkness, there is a symbolic truth in it. Can you think of the most evil things in the history of mankind? Fascism, Communism, Nazism, the crusades, the inquisition, the organized crime, and the secret societies were all, in one way or other, byproducts of Islam.

So it is shortsighted to blame Hinduism for denying freedom of speech and expression to a Muslim painter in India. This intolerance is not inspired by Hinduism. What you see is the reflection of the intolerance of Islam. It is ironic that despite their claim of hating Islam, Hindu extremists are influenced by Muhammad’s evil spirit and are indeed Muslims. It is not their belief that makes them Islamists, but their conducts.

Now let me answer your questions

- Whether girl child were buried alive in Arabs during pre-Prophet era or not?
Female infanticide is the intentional killing of infant girls. In addition to the active methods undertaken to eliminate baby girls soon after birth, neglect and discrimination leading to death and sex-selective abortion are also means by which many female children die each year. These phenomena are most prevalent in patriarchal societies in which the status of women is low and a preference for sons is built into the cultural ideology.

Female infaniticide cuts across all social and economic boundaries. Thus, the practice involves a wide range of location-specific and culturally-motivated causes. In rural and poverty-stricken areas, lack of education, economic resources, and access to healthcare are factors that lead to the murder of infant girls. In urban areas, selective abortion is commonly employed by individuals with access to modern medical technology that allows for early detection of sex.

This practice is not condoned or tolerated by any government. There are punitive measures to discourage female infanticide. India and China, two of the most populous countries today, top the list of nations in which these atrocities are carried out. However you cannot say that this evil practice is wide spread in either one of these countries.

Arabia was and still is a patriarchal society. But it does not mean everyone practiced female infanticide. Had this been the case no woman would have been left. The fact that some men could afford to have several women shows the claim that infanticide was a widespread practice prior to Islam is a gross exaggeration.

The truth is that humans instinctively love babies, and more so their own. What Muhammad said was commonsense. Saying something as banal as this does not make one a prophet. Ask any criminal whether infanticide is good and he will tell you that it is abhorrent. Muhammad committed crimes that many criminal will not commit, such as raiding people’s homes at night, butchering unarmed men and raping their wives and daughters. Don’t judge a man by his words but by his deeds. Muhammad preached a lot of good things that are commonsense but his actions were demonic. He often violated his own preaching.

- Did women have any right in property in pre-Prophet era?
Of course they did! Wasn’t Khadijah a successful merchant and the wealthiest woman of Mecca prior to marrying Muhammad? As a single woman she ran a business and hired men to work for her. Muslims are so immersed in lies that they can’t see the obvious.

Arab women lost their human rights after Islam. At the time of Muhammad there was a woman prophetess called Sijjah. She had many followers. This is inconceivable for Muslims whose prophet told them women are deficient in intelligence and because of menstruation they are filthy. Salma was a young woman who lead an army against Khalid ibn Walid and was defeated thanks to the coward unchivalry of that villain general of Islam. Aisha also led an army against Ali. Early believers followed a woman to war. Today Muslim women in Saudi Arabia don't have the right to drive a car.

Eventually, as the influence of Islam spread, and words of Muhammad such as “no Nation will prosper under a woman’s leadership” were accepted as true, women lost their status and today, they are called awrat (pudendum). They have to be covered from head to toe because every sqyare inch of their body is private part - an en extension of their vagina. Isn’t hijab the biggest insult to women? Muslim women are not regarded as humans but as waking talking vaginas. That is what awrat means and that is why they must be covered. Don’t let anyone fool you. Hijab has nothing to do with modesty. It is devised to cover women because they are perceived as awrat - objects of shame.

In Islam women are the property of men. The Quran gives men permission to beat them and Muslim societies condone and even encourage “honor” killing them. Women are killed for Muslim men to restore their honor.

Who destroyed the Mosques in Spain, Russia & China?
As I said before, people of all faiths are reacting to Islamic violence and are retaliating. The destruction of Babri Mosque, for example, was in effect a reaction of Hindus to Islamic expansionism. They destroyed the mosque because it was built on the site where the temple of Ayodhaya that commemorated Rama’s birthplace had ones stood. That temple was destroyed by the Muslim governor Mir Baqi in 1527.

Everywhere you see a mosque is destroyed you can find a trail of blood that leads to Islamic violence and jihad. The Serbian war against the Kosovo and Bosnia was a reaction to centuries of abuse by Muslims. There is a tower made of human sculls built by Muslim invaders of Serbia. Finally the Serbs snapped. That is not to condone what they did, but to explain where this hatred originated.

Let us be fair and look beyond the events and into their root causes. The root cause of most evil perpetrated in the world can be traced to Islam. Most of the problems affecting mankind were caused by that Prince of Darkness born in the seventh century Arabia.

Today, Chinese are reacting to Muslims. On the surface this looks like another case of human rights abuses that the Chinese government is known for. But beneath that lies a history that needs to be taken into consideration. Arab, Persian and Uyghur Muslims came to China as merchants and were received well. But being Muslims they did not mix with the Hans, the proper Chinese. When the Mongols invaded China, Muslims cooperated with them to keep the Hans in the second class status in their own country. The Mongols, whose own ideology of domination through violence matched that of Muhammad, brought many Muslim immigrants to China and employed them as administrators to control the Hans.

Today, Muslims in China demand autonomy and secession. But as far as Chinese are concerned these people are immigrants and invaders. It is normal for the Chinese to be defensive and protective or their country.

There are many parts of Europe that are no-go zones for non-Muslims. Muslim immigrants have taken these quarters and not even police is allowed to go there. The Europeans have become euphemized and are incapable to defend their countries, but Chinese are still patriotic. Hence, the harsh reaction.

Who is responsible for Tianamin Square Massacre in China
Tiananmen Square massacre was perpetrated by the Chinese communist regime. Communism, like Islam, is a plague that has to be eradicated. As I argued above, all these plagues have their roots or their inspirations in Islamic ethos of world domination. Every ideology of domination, that divides mankind into us versus them that instils in its followers the hatred of the outsider, that aspires to dominate the world dictatorially, has its ideological root in Islam. Most evil in the world is inspired, directly or indirectly, by the monster of Arabia.

I see all these as symptoms. The disease is the ideology of Islam. I am not interested in symptoms. My goal is to eradicate the disease. Once Islam and Islamic way of thinking, the thinking that divides mankind into us versus them that rouses the insiders against the outsiders that is founded on hate and on disunity is eradicated, these symptoms will also disappear.

I want to see a world where no one is seen as them, where all mankind is seen as us, members of one human family, cells of one body. This is possible, but to get to this noble goal we have to get rid of ideologies that divide us. Islam is the inspiration behind all ideologies of hate. That is why I am after Islam.

Do the Israeli and Mynmar governments are not violating human rights?
Mynmar government is dictatorship. I don’t know of any dictatorship that does not violate human rights. But Israel is a democracy. Israel does not violate human rights. She is however, under severe negative propaganda attack by Muslims and their liberal helpers. Israel is vilified and demonized with calumny and libel out of political expediency. An Arab proverb says, things are known by their nemesis. Look who are the nemesis of Israel: Ahmadinejad and his murderous regime, the terrorists of all persuasions, the Hamas, the Hizbollah, the al Qaida, and virtually all Muslims that believe in the Prince of Darkness, the Nazis, the KKK, the while supremacists, the black supremacists and the hard core communists. These folks are not good people. I am not a moral relativist. I do not believe all cultures are the same. There are cultures and beliefs that are evil and those who believe in them do evil things.

If you pay close attention, you can see the world is divided in two camps: On the left there are those who believe in evil ideologies of hate and have separated themselves from the rest and on the right there are those who believe all men are equal. The former groups believe good and bad people can be differentiated by their adherence to certain race, belief or doctrine, While the latter group believe good and evil are determined by the content of one’s character and one's deeds.

It happens that all the enemies of Israel belong to the former group, the dividers of mankind and the hate mongers. I prefer to be part of the latter group. That is why I am with Israel and a Zionist. I use this term deliberately because Muslims don’t know what it means. They are brainwashed to believe Zionist is something evil. Zionist is one who believes Jews have the right to have a country of their own. I believe in that.

I invite you to see two short videos. One is about Israel being the first country to get to disaster areas of the world helping the victims irrespective of their belief or race and the other is how Israel has become the victim of vicious lies motivated by appeasement of Muslims and political correctness.

At no time the demarcation between good and evil was clearer than now. Those who follow evil doctrines, have divided the world, promote lies and foment hate, are all enemies of Israel. This country must do something right to arouse the wrath of all hate mongers and evil doers. Our mission in FFI is to stop them, to make them see their folly and to bring them back to the fold of humanity. I invite you also to join us.

If any religion advocates hate and violence that religion has to be condemned. It is a mistake to grant immunity to any doctrine of hate just because it brands itself as religion. Assuming God exists and sends messages, His messages must be messages of love and unity. It can't be another way. If anyone foments discord that person is not from God, but an impostor or worse an envoy of Satan that has come to bring sedition war and destruction to mankind.

If a religion preaches love and its followers wage war, that religion is not to be blamed, but if a religion glorifies fighting and prescribes it as the most lofty act of worship and the fastest way to heaven that religion is to be blamed. Islam is evil because of what Muhammad said and did. I cannot say the same about any other religion.

Anyone must have the right to abuse and to distort any belief. What you perceive as distortion and abuse is honest understanding of someone else.

The demand that no one should distort and abuse any belief is the source of all evil. We all have different understanding of reality. Our beliefs are shaped by our upbringing, external influences and our mental capacity. Everyone is convinced of their belief. What you believe is most certainly contrary to someone else’s belief. Your understanding of an object or a subject may be very different from mine. That is because we see the same thing from different perspectives. It is fine that we should not agree with each other, but if I accuse you of distorting the truth and you accuse me of the same, if I demand that you should shut up and you do the same, the only way left for us to resolve this impasse is to go in war.

Do you see how we have fooled ourselves with a lie and condemned ourselves to perpetual war? The idea that belief should not be criticized is lunacy. Millions have perished because of this stupid idea while fighting to defend faiths that could not be defended logically.

Who are you to tell me that I should not distort your belief? Who said your belief is not distorted and mine is? From where I stand it is you who have distorted beliefs. Do I have the right to tell you to shut up? This is the most ludicrous dogma that humans have invented. We may also owe that to Muhammad. Beliefs don’t need protection of the law. They can and they should be criticized. If they are true they can withstand every criticism and distortions. It is lies that require protection. When you wrote to authorities asking them to stop me, unknowingly you witnessed to the fallacy of Islam. Now that you are engaging in debate you are demonstrating your conviction that Islam is true. Truth can spark when differing ideas collide.

Beliefs don’t have rights. Humans have rights. Part of that right is to criticize any belief. Muslims do that all the time. Don’t you criticize trinity? Don’t you believe that Jesus was not crucified? These beliefs are contrary to Christianity. They offend the true believers. But it does not stop you. And it shouldn’t. You should be free to express your beliefs even if Christians are offended. What you are not allowed to do is to burn churches, destroy synagogues and temples. Why Muslims do this? It is because Muhammad did it. Muhammad rammed into Ka’ba and destroyed that temple. So Muslims follow the evil example set by their prophet. Then you complain when sometimes other retaliate. You only see the retaliation part. What you fail to see is that all this started with Muhammad. It is the influence of that demonic soul that is causing so much mayhem in the world.

We must be free to say what we believe. Of course we cannot agree on everything. Of course both of us are convinced that the other guy does not understand the truth and is distorting it. That is fine. If truth is on our side we should not be afraid of criticism.

Can Islam stand criticism? It can’t. That proves that it is a lie. But you disagree with me. You say I am distorting the facts. In that case please show us that distortion. Once you prove I am mistaken, I will join the fold of Islam, but so far no one has been able to do it.

A complaint against, Part I‎

Submitted by Ali Sina on Sun, 01/17/2010 - 07:17

The following is a complaint made against faithfreedom International by Mr. Zameer Ahmed Jumlana, Secretary of All India Committee, Indian National League, to the Commissioner of Delhi Police, India.

To the desk of Y. S. Dadwal, Commissioner of Delhi Police, INDIA.
CC. faithreedom International

My attention is being drawn about Anti-Islamic provocative website . I personally check the website which contains the Alleged Pictures of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) which are forbidden according to teachings of Islam. The Life History of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him) is also described at the said website in a much distorted manner. What is more objectionable is that Anti-Islamic propaganda is done by imposing them as ardent Muslim.

I am optimistic that a swift legal action will be taken against the above identified website.

Zameer Ahmed Jumlana (Secretary All India Committee, Indian National League) Mobile: 9811531096

Dear Mr. Zameer Ahmed Jumlana,
Showing the pictures of Muhammad is forbidden by the teachings of Islam. However, we are not Muslims and we do not abide by the teachings of Islam. Isn’t it absurd that you expect everyone to live by your dictums?

Muslims are in violation of the laws that are the hallmark of the civilized people, such as the Golden Rule, the Human Rights, the equality of genders, the freedom of speech, the freedom of belief, etc. These are the laws that matter to us. They don’t matter to you, because they are not part of your laws.

Just as you file a complaint against us for violating your laws, we are taking you to court for violating our laws.

Which court? The court of the public opinion! It is in this court that we are exposing the deception, the violence, and the hate that is so intrinsic in the religion that you espouse. We are fighting the lies of Islam with truth and winning the minds and hearts of thousands of people, both Muslims and non-Muslims.

Can you defend Islam? Can you prove that what we allege against your faith and its monstrous prophet are untrue? No you cannot. When it comes to logic you are helpless. You cannot defend your evil belief with logic. There is nothing you can do, but to bring legal charges to stop us from revealing the truth about your cherished faith.

You can’t. There is no law that can stop us from telling the truth about any faith, at least not where I live. Here we practice freedom of speech and criticizing religions, including Islam is our birth right.

This is the freedom that you Muslims have always enjoyed, but have denied to others. You think it is okay to destroy churches, synagogues, temples and the houses of worships of other faiths, trash their religions and criticize them. You think it is okay for your prophet to call the Jews, maghdhoob (hated by God), the Christians, gone astray and the Hindus, polytheists and najes (filthy), but you cry like a baby when someone criticizes your faith.

Seven innocent Baha’is in Iran are being prosecuted, as I write these notes. They may face execution, because they are accused of “waging war against God and spreading corruption on Earth.” The punishment for these offences in Islam is death. You are not offended by this gross violation of human rights, but you are offended if we show the pictures of Muhammad?

Have you ever thought why Muhammad disallowed his followers to depict him? In his later years, Muhammad suffered from the degenerative disease of achromegaly. Thanks to this disease his bones and cartilages grew disproportionately. His facial features were deformed. He looked like a monster. But Muhammad was also a narcissist and he was very concerned about his image. Consequently, he forbade his followers to depict him. He did not want the posterity to see how ugly he looked. If you want to really know how Muhammad looked, please read my book, Understanding Muhammad: A Psychobiography of Allah’s Prophet. I have unearthed his description, narrated by his nearest and dearest.

You went on to accuse us of “imposing” anti-Islamic propaganda on ardent Muslims.

Really? Have we ever called for jihad against ardent Muslims? Have we said anywhere that Muslims should recant their faith, pay jizyah, or they should be killed? Where is this imposition you are talking about? You fail to see that Muhammad imposed his diabolic faith on others through his numerous ghazwas (raids), that your ancestors and mine were massacred, raped and forced into conversion, but you see an Internet site as an imposition? If a Muslim does not want to read our site, all he has to do is click out of it. Can a Muslim who does not want to remain a Muslim click out of his faith? What will happen to him if he does? Can non-Muslims living in Islamic countries practice their faith freely? Have you read about the recent violence against the Copts in Egypt? Have you heard of innocent Muslims in Pakistan accused of blasphemy and lynched by Muslim goons?

Your ancestors, like mine, were butchered and raped by marauding Muslims, and now you are defending the barbaric faith of their abusers? You and I don't owe any allegiance to the demonic faith of the murderers of our ancestors. Wake up Mr. Jumlana. Don't betray your own people, your own ancestors, and your own culture. Have you become the defender of a cult that destroyed them? Instead of defending the filthy cult of a monster you should defend your own culture. You are a Hindu, Be proud of your heritage that has contributed to humanity so much.

It is amazing how Muslims can be so genuinely hypocritical. You accuse us of something that befits Islam. FFI does not have means of torture to impose anything. Any time a Muslim can’t handle us, relief is a click away. But they are coming. They are reading what we write and they are leaving Islam. We do not impose our views, but the truth is compelling.

Well, Mr. Zameer Ahmed Jumlana. Unlike Muslims I am a fair person and would like to give you the opportunity to defend your faith. Show us that Islam is a religion from God and not an idiotic faith concocted by a mentally and physically sick individual. Prove us wrong and I will not only publish your rebuttal, but also announce publicly that I was wrong and even will give you $50,000 dollars as reward.

That is not all. I am going to do something that is inconceivable for Muslims and may even shock the non-Muslims. We have a blog section in this site. I am going to let Muslims to run their blogs. Yes that is right! From today, I announce that the blog section of FFI is open to all those who want to prove us wrong. We are working on a new application for this site that will be easier to use. It will be launched in about a week. I am going to create a new chapter in the blogs section for Muslims to respond to all the charges made against Muhammad and Islam.

How about that for freedom of speech? Of course Muslims have been always free to post anything in the forum and in the comments section of, but now they can also write blogs refuting FFI right on FFI. Show me one Islamic site that allows opposing comments, let alone giving their critics blogs to refute them.

So, Dear Mr. Jumlana, instead of crying like a baby and complaining to authorities, please act maturely and start refuting what you believe are “distortions” in our site.

This offer is open to all Muslims. Muslims can now have their own blogs to refute us on FFI. I have a hunch that their blogs will be very popular, provided they write scholarly articles. But be also prepared to be debunked and refuted. You are free to write anything and you readers are free to comment and show your errors.

There are some conditions.
1- You must not use copy pasted articles from other writers. What you publish on FFI must be your own writing.
2- Your articles must be in response to the charges made against Muhammad. The intent is to prove FFI is wrong and Islam is indeed a true religion.

Are you up to the challenge? If we are distorting the facts, as you accuse us, it should be easy for you to prove us wrong. The antidote to lies is truth. Show us the truth and debunk everything we say, in konta men al sadeqeen.

By searching your name in Google, I see you are a professional complainer to authorities and an avid lawsuit maker. But I did not find any scholarly article penned by you about Islam. I hope you will be able to defend your faith logically now that you have exposed yourself to all and sundry. Don’t try to bully the critics of Islam to silence, it won’t work anymore. Instead try to refute them wrong, if you can.

Wish you the best

Allah is not the only true God and the only true God is not Allah

Muslim Dawagandist Sami Zaatari once again proves that Allah is not God!

Sam Shamoun

On a number of occasions we observed how the arguments and objections of Muslim apologists do more damage to the cause of Islam than good. We have further stated that these same propagandists do not realize that they are actually serving our cause since some of their arguments pretty much end up confirming the truth of Christianity. One such dawagandist who is regularly helping to confirm Christianity while debunking the claims of Islam is Sami Zaatari. On more than one occasion he has raised objections against the Deity of Christ that actually ended up proving that Allah is a false god (
1, 2, 3)!

Zaatari has done it again! Zaatari just recently published an article where he quotes Jesus to prove
that the Father is the only true God. Zaatari writes,

Now the Bible does identify God, and what makes this interesting is that God is not identified as Jesus, rather Jesus is excluded from the identification! We read from Jesus himself:

And after quoting John 17:1-3 Zaatari says: So in the above Jesus identifies who the ONLY TRUE GOD is, and this God is identified as being the Father. Jesus cannot make himself any clearer; he refers to the Father as the only true God, which obviously excludes anyone else.

He then concludes:

So in conclusion, if one is an honest truth seeker, and not brainwashed by the Trinity, one will have to conclude that Jesus is not God, rather there is only one true God, and that is the Father.

It is rather unfortunate for Zaatari that in his haste to refute the doctrine of the Trinity and the Deity of the Lord Jesus he couldn’t see how Christ’s words prove that Allah is a false god and that Muhammad is a false prophet. Notice what Jesus said in context:

“After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: ‘Father, the time has come. Glorify YOUR Son, that YOUR Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.’” John 17:1-3

According to Jesus the only true God is the Father who glorifies his Son, i.e. Jesus Christ. However, according to Muhammad Allah is not Jesus’ father and is, in fact, not a father to anyone. Here is what Muhammad said in his Quran:

And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away! S. 9:30

And the Jews and the Christians say: We are the sons of Allah and His beloved ones. Say: Why does He then chastise you for your faults? Nay, you are mortals from among those whom He has created, He forgives whom He pleases and chastises whom He pleases; and Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and to Him is the eventual coming. S. 5:18

And they say: The Beneficent has taken (to Himself) a son. Certainly you have made an abominable assertion The heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces, That they ascribe a son to the Beneficent. And it is not worthy of the Beneficent that He should take (to Himself) a son. There is no one in the heavens and the earth but will come to the Beneficent God as a servant. S. 19:88-93

Thus, since Zaatari has argued that Jesus himself identified the Father as the only true God and since the god of Muhammad is not a father to anyone, especially to Jesus, then he must accept the fact that his Allah is a false god.
Notice the logic behind this:

According to Jesus the Father is the only true God.
- Muhammad taught that Allah is not the Father.
- Therefore, Muhammad’s Allah is not the only true God according to the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is simply no way around this since Zaatari affirms that these are the actual words of the Lord Jesus, e.g., “We read from Jesus himself,” and “Jesus cannot make himself any clearer.” Zaatari cannot then turn around and attack the veracity of these very same Biblical verses which he himself used to prove his position.

Now if we were to add the witness of 1 John 2:22-23 which says,
“Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.”
1 John 2:22-23

Then Muhammad’s god is clearly the spirit of antichrist which makes Muhammad an antichrist! This simply further proves that Zaatari’s god is not the only true God that Jesus spoke of and who is revealed in the Holy Bible.

In conclusion we want to say that we absolutely agree with Zaatari that Jesus couldn’t have made himself any clearer that the Father is the only true God which proves that Muhammad’s Allah must be a false god. Therefore, any God-honoring truth seeker must reject Muhammad as a deceiver and the Quran as a book of deceptions and lies which perverts the truth of God’s revelation. In light of this, the readers should take Zaatari’s advise and not allow Muslim dawagandists to brainwash them into thinking that Jesus was a Muslim who taught tauhid (Islamic monotheism) since the only one true God according to Jesus is his Father, a fact which the Quran rejects.

Now Zaatari obviously didn’t realize that he was helping to confirm that Muhammad is a false prophet who preached a false god according to the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. However, he is stuck with the mess that he has created for himself and must accept that Jesus’s teachings and Islamic doctrine are simply incompatible.

With that said we want to end by again thanking Zaatari for helping us prove that the God that Jesus preached is not the same god worshiped by Muslims.

To read our rebuttal to his blatant distortion of the meaning of John 17:3 and how it relates to the Deity of the Lord Jesus please go



Islam’s Divine Insurance Scam

By Sam Shamoun & Jochen Katz1

Bassam Zawadi has produced a short article (
*) where he tries to show why Dr. William Lane Craig’s defense (*) of penal substitution is unsatisfactory.

We recommend reading both articles first since this will make it easier to understand the context of Zawadi’s “reply” and our refutation of it. After presenting Dr. Craig’s story about a person who worked in the insurance business to illustrate the concept of imputation Zawadi responds:

Dr. Craig's analogy is flawed on more than one level:

1) There are several factors that determine if an insurance claim is successful or not. For example in the event of 'death by dangerous driving', there is no escape by an insured (or uninsured) driver from an almost certain jail term. The insurance company will not assume any liability for the driver's negligence and can do nothing to save the policy holder from being locked up. In this instance, the driver incurs liability for his crime. Any negligence in the operation of the automobile is thus imputed to the policy holder (driver). The insurance company only imputes certain negligence as outlined in the type of cover (agreement) signed by the policy holder. The insured driver will be held accountable by the court of law for any prohibited act (crime) he committed e.g. driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs etc. This is in no way similar to the example of the Christian faith, where ALL sin is (allegedly) imputed to Christ during his Crucifixion! There are no premiums or excess to be paid and no limits to the types of sins/negligence. It's ALL forgiven in Christian theology.

2) There is no guarantee that an insurance claim will be successful. Even if the claim is successful and the driver's negligence is imputed, e.g. in a minor accident, the insurance company still benefited from the periodic premium fees (and in some cases a compulsory
excess) paid by the policy holder. In short, no insurance company will assume liability for your actions for free! The only reason why the insurance company is willing to have some of the policy holder's negligence imputed to them is because they are benefiting out of it more than the policy holder most of the time. Hence, it becomes understandable why they would agree to such a thing in the first place.

He then mentions Dr. Craig’s court analogy and says:

Do Christians really believe that if the murderer genuinely repented and then someone volunteered to incur his punishment on his behalf then that means that justice has been served? That's very revealing of how disastrous Christian theology could influence one's way of thinking. I really have nothing to say to such absurdity except that I pity those who believe such a thing and that I thank God for being a Muslim.

Here it is where Zawadi shows that he is deceptive and has little respect for truth. Notice his assertion carefully since this will expose that he is a fraud who doesn’t care much for honesty or acting with integrity. It is absurd and pitiful to believe that justice has been served if a murderer sincerely repents and someone else volunteers to incur his punishment on his belief. In saying this Zawadi has basically condemned his own god and prophet for being both absurd and pitiful.

The conclusion that Zawadi’s argument is dishonest and not merely ignorant is justified because most of the below following arguments about “Islamic substitution” were already published on Answering Islam some years ago, for example in these two articles: (1)
Islam's Doctrine of Substitutionary Atonement and the Ransoming of Sinners [2004], (2) The (In)Justice of Allah Examined [2006]. Morever, Zawadi has even tried to refute the second one of these articles (1, 2), so that he can hardly claim ignorance of these traditions.

For instance, Muhammad taught that a cold blooded murderer who had murdered a hundred people was forgiven solely because he journeyed to a village where he sought for repentance.

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: The Prophet said, “Amongst the men of Bani Israel there was a man who had murdered ninety-nine persons. Then he set out asking (whether his repentance could be accepted or not). He came upon a monk and asked him if his repentance could be accepted. The monk replied in the negative and so the man killed him. He kept on asking till a man advised to go to such and such village. (So he left for it) but death overtook him on the way. While dying, he turned his chest towards that village (where he had hoped his repentance would be accepted), and so the angels of mercy and the angels of punishment quarreled amongst themselves regarding him. Allah ordered the village (towards which he was going) to come closer to him, and ordered the village (whence he had come), to go far away, and then He ordered the angels to measure the distances between his body and the two villages. So he was found to be one span closer to the village (he was going to). So he was forgiven.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56,
Number 676)

This belittles sin. There is no punishment at all, so just repent and that is sufficient. Where is the justice?

Moreover, note that this man’s “repentance” is hardly sincere. When he doesn’t get a free pass from the monk, i.e. this monk denies that repentance is possible for him, he simply murders the monk, thus adding to his sin. A man who would be truly sorry and genuinely seeking to better his life and live on the basis of God’s commandments would not murder yet another person simply because this person doesn’t give him what he desired. With this act, he showed his full wickedness and that he was not really repentant.

Still, Allah has no problem to wink at his sin and simply forget about his murders.

Thus, if we should believe this tradition, in Islam one does not even need genuine repentance, it is apparently enough to pretend to repent.

After Zawadi judged the Christian concept to be absurd and pitiful, we are anxious to hear his evaluation of the above story.

The prophet Muhammad further taught that a person who had done absolutely no good deed will still enter paradise solely because he was afraid to meet Allah in judgment:

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “A MAN USED TO DO SINFUL DEEDS, and when death came to him, he said to his sons, 'After my death, burn me and then crush me, and scatter the powder in the air, for by Allah, if Allah has control over me, He will give me such a punishment as He has never given to anyone else.' When he died, his sons did accordingly. Allah ordered the earth saying, 'Collect what you hold of his particles.' It did so, and behold! There he was (the man) standing. Allah asked him, 'What made you do what you did?' He replied, 'O my Lord! I was afraid of you.' SO ALLAH FORGAVE HIM.” Another narrator said "The man said, Fear of You, O Lord!” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56,
Number 688)

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "A MAN WHO NEVER DID ANY GOOD DEED, said that if he died, his family should burn him and throw half the ashes of his burnt body in the earth and the other half in the sea, for by Allah, if Allah should get hold of him, He would inflict such punishment on him as He would not inflict on anybody among the people. But Allah ordered the sea to collect what was in it (of his ashes) and similarly ordered the earth to collect what was in it (of his ashes). Then Allah said (to the recreated man), 'Why did you do so?' The man replied, 'For being afraid of you, and you know it (very well).' SO ALLAH FORGAVE HIM." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93,
Number 597)

Again, this man did not even show any signs of repentance. He merely was afraid of Allah, but he did not say he regretted his actions or tried to repent and restitute anything to those whom he had harmed. Without even being asked for forgiveness, Allah simply forgives him? Is that Islam’s superior justice when compared with the biblical concept?

To top it off, Muhammad even said that a person who committed sexual immorality and theft would still go to paradise if s/he died believing in the Islamic creed!

Narrated Abu Dharr: I came to the Prophet while he was wearing white clothes and sleeping. Then I went back to him again after he had got up from his sleep. He said, "Nobody says: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’ and then later on he dies while believing in that, except that he will enter Paradise." I said, "Even It he had committed illegal sexual intercourse and theft." I said, "Even if he had committed illegal sexual intercourse and theft? He said. "Even If he had committed illegal sexual intercourse and theft." I said, "Even it he had committed illegal sexual intercourse and thefts." He said, "Even If he had committed Illegal sexual intercourse and theft, in spite of Abu Dharr’s dislikeness." Abu ‘Abdullah said, "This is at the time of death or before it if one repents and regrets and says ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, he will be forgiven his sins." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 72,
Number 717)

Narrated Abu Dharr: The Prophet said, Gabriel came to me and gave me the glad tidings that anyone who died without worshipping anything besides Allah, would enter Paradise. I asked (Gabriel), ‘Even if he committed theft, and even if he committed illegal sexual intercourse?’ He said, ‘(Yes), even if he committed theft, and even if he committed illegal sexual intercourse." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93,
Number 579)

412. 'Ubada ibn as-Samit reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Whoever testifies that there is no god but Allah alone with no partner and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger and that 'Isa is the slave of Allah and His Messenger and a word which He cast into Maryam and a spirit from Him and that the Garden is real and the Fire is real will enter the Garden WHATEVER HIS ACTIONS." [Agreed upon] (Al-Imam Abu Zakariya Yahya bin Sharaf An-Nawawi Ad-Dimashqi, Riyad as-Salihin (The Meadows of the Righteous), 51. Chapter:
On Hope; bold and underline emphasis ours)

In fact,
Allah even told a person that he could whatever he wished since his sins were forgiven, thereby encouraging the individual to engage in sinful behavior!

Abu Huraira reported from Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) that his Lord, the Exalted and Glorious, thus said: A servant committed a sin and he said: O Allah, forgive me my sins, and Allah (the Exalted and Glorious) said: My servant committed a sin and then he came to realise that he has a Lord Who forgives the sins and takes to account (the sinner) for the sin. He then again committed a sin and said: My Lord, forgive me my sin, and Allah, the Exalted and High, said: My servant committed a sin and then came to realise that he has a Lord Who would forgive his sin or would take (him) to account for the sin. He again committed a sin and said: My Lord, forgive me for my sin, and Allah (the Exalted and High) said: My servant has committed a sin and then came to realise that he has a Lord Who forgives the sins or takes (him) to account for sin. O servant, do what you like. I have granted you forgiveness. 'Abd al-A'la said: I do not know whether he said thrice or four times to do, "what you desire". The hadith has been narrated on the authority of 'Abd al-A'la b. Hammad with the same chain of transmitters. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037,
Number 6642)

Muhammad further said that on the Day of Judgment Allah will take out people from hell and admit them into Paradise despite the fact that they hadn’t performed any good deeds:

“… The Prophet added, ‘Then the prophets and Angels and the believers will intercede, and (last of all) the Almighty (Allah) will say, “Now remains My Intercession.” He will then hold a handful of the Fire from which He will take out some people whose bodies have been burnt, and they will be thrown into a river at the entrance of Paradise, called the water of life. “‘They will grow on its banks, as a seed carried by the torrent grows. You have noticed how it grows beside a rock or beside a tree, and how the side facing the sun is usually green while the side facing the shade is white. Those people will come out (of the River of Life) like pearls, and they will have (golden) necklaces, and then they will enter Paradise whereupon the people of Paradise will say, “These are the people emancipated by the Beneficent. He has admitted them into Paradise without them having done any good deeds and without sending forth any good (for themselves).” Then it will be said to them, “For you is what you have seen and its equivalent as well.”’” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93,
Number 532s)

To make matters worse
Allah will actually give these people who have done no good for a reward for every sin they have committed!

2594. Anas narrated that the Prophet said: "Allah will say: ‘Remove from the Fire whoever remembered Me one day, or feared Me while in a state of sinning.’" (Hasan)

[Abu ‘Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Gharib Sahih.

Comments: Remembering Allah and fearing Him is the sign of one’s faith. The Hadith confirms that even those persons who have no good in their Register of Deeds expect the weakest form of faith (iman) will ultimately get deliverance from Fire through Allah’s benevolence and mercy. (English Translation of Jami‘ At-Tirmidhi, Compiled by Imam Hafiz ‘Eisa Mohammad Ibn ‘Eisa At-Tirmidhi, From Hadith no. 1897 to 2605, translated by Abu Khalil (USA), Ahadith edited and referenced by Hafiz Abu Tahir Zubair ‘Ali Za’i, final review by Islamic Research Section Darussalam [Darussalam Publishers & Distributors, First Edition: November 2007], Volume 4, Chapter 9. What Has Been Related About ‘The Fire Has Two Breaths,’ And What Has Been Mentioned About Those Who Will Exit The Fire From The People of Tawhid, p. 572; underline emphasis ours)


2596. Abu Dharr narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: "I know that the last of the people of the Fire depart from the Fire and the last of the people of Paradise to enter Paradise. A man will be brought forth and He will say: ‘Ask about his small sins and hide his large sins.’ So it will be said to him: ‘Did you do this and that on such and such a day, did you do this and that on such-and-such a day?’" He said: "Then it will be said to him: ‘FOR EACH OF YOUR SINS YOU SHALL HAVE A REWARD.’" He said: "So he will say: ‘O Lord! I have done things that I do not see here.’" He (Abu Dharr) said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah laugh until his molars were visible." (Sahih)

Abu ‘Eisa said: This Hadith is Hasan Sahih.

Comments: Allah’s benevolence and mercy are boundless. NO RULES OR LAWS CAN BIND HIM, since He is for Whom it is said in the Qur’an: He cannot be questioned as to what He does. (21:23) HE WILL, THEREFORE, CHANGE THE SINS INTO VIRTUOUS DEEDS FOR WHOMEVER HE WILLS. (Ibid., Chapter 10. Something Else Regarding The Story Of The Last Of The People Of The Fire To Leave it, pp. 573-574; capital and underline emphasis ours)

Talk about a travesty of justice! Allah not only doesn’t punish the wicked he actually rewards them for their wickedness! As the commentator stated, Allah is not bound by anything and is therefore a capricious being who can pervert justice. Clearly, Muhammad’s god is not simply an amoral being, one who is morally neutral, he is actually immoral and unholy who is actually promoting wickedness and the outright perversion of justice by such teachings (or at the very least Muhammad is since he is the one that is alleged to have made these statements).

Moreover, hadiths such as the one stating that Allah gave license to a person to sin as much as he wants simply because Allah forgave him for repenting actually promote and encourage individuals to commit heinous and evil acts. This makes the Islamic god complicit in all the vile, immoral actions that Muslims commit around the world, including the gross sins and sexual immorality that Muhammad himself and his companions engaged in.

Contrast the teachings of Muhammad with that of a true inspired servant of God, namely the blessed Apostle Paul:

“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin — because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey — whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness. When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:1-23

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God… Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 18-20

“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.” Galatians 5:13-26

“So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:17-32

“Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one transgress and wrong his brother in this matter, because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you beforehand and solemnly warned you. For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness. Therefore whoever disregards this, disregards not man but God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.” 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.” Titus 2:11-14

What a stark contrast! The instructions of Muhammad and his god encourage murder, sexual immorality and wickedness whereas Paul’s inspired teachings promote sexual purity, holiness, self-sacrifice, unconditional love etc. Muhammad, to use the words of John the Baptist, was not worthy to untie Paul’s sandal straps, let alone that of the Lord Jesus who was the One responsible for transforming the Apostle and empowering him to become a holy and righteous vessel whom he used to accomplish his sovereign purposes.

Returning to the issue at hand, it seems that the reason why Muhammad believed that Allah could simply forgive people and allow them to enter into paradise despite having committed heinous crimes and having never performed any good deeds is because Muhammad actually thought that Allah would punish the Jews and Christians in hell for all the crimes committed by Muslims!


Abu Musa' reported that Allah's Messenger said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your RESCUE from Hell-Fire. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037,
Number 6665)

Abu Burda reported on the authority of his father that Allah's Apostle said: No Muslim would die but Allah would admit IN HIS STEAD a Jew or a Christian in Hell-Fire. 'Umar b. Abd al-'Aziz took an oath: By One besides Whom there is no god but He, thrice that his father had narrated that to him from Allah's Messenger. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037,
Number 6666)

Abu Burda reported Allah's Messenger as saying: There would come people amongst the Muslims on the Day of Resurrection with AS HEAVY SINS AS A MOUNTAIN, and Allah would FORGIVE THEM and He would PLACE IN THEIR STEAD the Jews and the Christians. (As far as I think), Abu Raub said: I do not know as to who is in doubt. Abu Burda said: I narrated it to 'Umar b. 'Abd al-'Aziz, whereupon he said: Was it your father who narrated it to you from Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him)? I said: Yes. (Sahih Muslim, Book 037,
Number 6668)

These hadiths indicate that Muhammad actually believed and affirmed penal substitution, albeit a rather perverted form of it!

What makes Muhammad’s (per)version of penal substitution so unjust is that these Jews and Christians obviously did not volunteer to take the place of Muslims in hell, which means that Allah is actually forcing them to enter there against their will!

Now if Zawadi thinks that a person who volunteers to incur the punishment of a murderer is absurd and pitiful then what does he do with the teachings of his false prophet who has people being sent to hell in the place of wicked and vile Muslims against their will?

And since Zawadi attacked the Christian doctrine of penal substitution as being unjust he is going to have to condemn Muhammad and his god for teaching something similar. Zawadi has to admit that Muhammad must have been absurd for claiming that Allah would ransom Muslims from the fire by having Jews and Christians take their place of punishment in hell. He needs to acknowledge that Muhammad must have been rather pitiful for actually believing that Allah would punish Jews and Christians for the sins of believers so that murderers and rapists like Muhammad and his companions could be forgiven and enter paradise!

More importantly, in light of his condemnation of penal substitution Zawadi needs to stop being a Muslim. He must abandon the false prophet Muhammad for teaching such a perverted and corrupt version of penal substitution. Otherwise if Zawadi refuses to do so then he will simply be exposing himself as a liar and deceiver who is not interested in truth but only in attacking Christianity.

Hopefully, Zawadi will be a man of integrity and do the right thing by abandoning the false prophet Muhammad and embrace Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Once he does he will then be thankful and praise his risen Lord and Savior for delivering him from the lies and deception of Allah and his messenger.

I praise the risen Lord Jesus that I am not a Muslim who blindly follows the false prophet Muhammad and his corrupt teachings!

Some final remarks
We need to clearly distinguish between EARTHLY penalty for criminal deeds (decided and executed by the state) and the ultimate DIVINE penalty at the last judgment for breaking the law of God.

No Christian would claim that a murderer or a defrauder who genuinely repents and accepts Jesus as his Savior from sin and Lord over his life should not be punished (here on earth) because God also forgives him.

The authority of the state was instituted by God and must judge according to justice, based on the law of the country.

Thus a Christian understanding does not make light of sins and crimes. We stand for justice in this life, within the justice system, and thus the Christian message does not encourage people to lead lawless and sinful lives since "we are forgiven anyway."

The topic of the above article was ONLY the eternal punishment when God judges our lives.

And in this eternal punishment, we are ALL guilty. Every Christian, every Muslim, everyone.

Nobody would make it to heaven based on his own merits. And even Islam acknowledges that.

If Allah should take men to task for their evildoing, He would not leave on the earth one creature that crawls; but He is deferring them to a term stated; and when their term is come they shall not put it back by a single hour nor put it forward.” S. 16:61

O believers, follow not the steps of Satan; for whosoever follows the steps of Satan, assuredly he bids to indecency and dishonour. But for Allah's bounty to you and His mercy not one of you would have been pure ever; but Allah purifies whom He will; and Allah is All-hearing, All-knowing. S. 24:21

Without the mercy of Allah, ALL deserve punishment and would go to Hell.

Against this background, the question that needs to be asked when comparing Christianity and Islam is this:

What is more a reflection of truly divine justice?

- That the biblical God takes the punishment for sin on HIMSELF – making sure that everyone still knows: Sin is incredibly serious.
The penalty for sin must be paid. Or,

- That the Islamic god simply forgets about punishing certain sins altogether and let's Muslims into paradise for merely saying the Shahada? Or, as pointed out by certain hadiths, who punishes and tortures Jews and Christians for the sins of the Muslims. To make matters even worse, according to Muhammad there will actually be certain individuals who have not performed any good deeds that will receive a reward for every single sin they have committed! This means that Allah is not simply amoral, but immoral and unholy, a being who perverts justice and promotes wickedness and sin!

Bassam Zawadi has just come out with an addendum to his original article seeking to explain away the teachings of his prophet which not only condone and promote immoral behavior but also undermine and attack the holy and righteous character of God. What makes Zawadi’s “reply” rather intriguing is that he doesn’t see just how blatantly inconsistent he truly is. He will jump at every chance to attack the message of the Holy Bible based on what he perceives to be its unjust and immoral teachings, even though this is nothing more than a reflection of his gross misunderstanding and misreading of the inspired Scriptures. Yet whenever his religion teaches similar concepts to those that he himself criticizes he will not hesitate to defend them! Nor does he have a problem coming up with excuses to justify the rather wicked and perverted instructions of Muhammad!

To make matters worse, Zawadi repeats the same arguments to defend the justice of Allah sending Jews and Christians to hell in place of Muslims, and raises the same objection against Jesus’ instructions in Matthew 5:17-20, despite the fact that he knows that we have already refuted and addressed his desperate defense and criticism in these articles (
1, 2).

To put it mildly, I am not impressed to see Zawadi simply repeating his assertions without responding to our answers. Lord willing, I will answer the rest of Zawadi’s “rebuttal”, i.e. the points which have not already been covered in the earlier articles, in the not so distant future.

If Zawadi really loves Muhammad then he should find another line of work, that is, unless his intention is to expose and discredit his god and prophet. If so then we encourage Zawadi to continue writing articles and “rebuttals” since he is doing an excellent of job of proving that Islam is intellectually and morally bankrupt, and that Muhammad is a false prophet whom every seeker of truth should condemn for deceiving and misleading people away from the true God.
