People in America have been traumatized by 9/11. We are on edge, and have been in "terror alert" status for over a decade now. One has to wonder what other attacks on British and American soil might have been like if we "hadn't" been alert and watchful. We were starting to relax.
“your big mistake is that you are saying that Taghut means non_muslim, and Allah means muslim.”
The word "Taghut" has been often white-washed to the incorrect translation of "evil" or "Satan" or "Idols", but infact, "Taghut" means: The action of disbelief and disobedience to Allah and Islam.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya explains,
“The Taghut are all things that go beyond their boundaries and cause the person to exceed the limits with regards to that which is worshipped, followed, or obeyed. So the Taghut in any nation is whosoever turns to other than Allah and His Messenger for matters of judgement; or is pleased to be worshipped besides Allah; or is followed without a clear proof from Allah; or is obeyed in that which is known to be disobedience to Allah."
Muhammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhab explains,
”The word Taghut is general. So everything that is worshipped besides Allah, while being pleased with this worship, whether it is something worshipped, someone followed, or someone obeyed in the absence of obedience to Allah and His Messenger, then that is considered Taghut.”
” 'Abd ibn Hamid, Ibn Jarir and Ibnu'l-Mundhir have narrated from Mujahid that he said:
(The tribe of) Nadir had suckled some people from the tribe of Aws. When the Prophet ordered their banishment, their foster sons from the Aws said: 'We shall go with them and enter into their religion.' But their families prevented them and compelled them to (accept) Islam. Then came down the verse about them: There is no compulsion in the religion. (ad-Durru'l-manthur)
[ Muhammad ibn Musa ibn al-Fadl -> Muhammad ibn Ya'qub -> Ibrahim ibn Marzuq -> Wahb ibn Jarir -> Shu'bah -> Abu Bishr -> Sa'id ibn Jubayr -> Ibn 'Abbas]
“The woman of the Ansar whose boys never survived used to vow that if a boy of hers survived, she would raise him as a Jew. When the Banu'l-Nadir were driven out of Medina they had among them children of the Ansar. The Ansari said: 'O Messenger of Allah! Our Children!' Allah, exalted is He, therefore revealed ”There is no compulsion in religion…”
This was before the Messenger of Allah (SAWS), was commanded to fight the People of the Book. But then Allah's saying “There is no compulsion in religion…” was abrogated and the Prophet was commanded to fight the people of the Book in Surah Repentance (Qur’an, Chapter 9)”.

Correct. Congratulations....You finally figured it out.
2:256 There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
you've been truly suckered into the whole divide and conquer thing haven't you.
You want this thread to be about Islam alone
So basically your op is an exercise in spreading hate - nothing more than that. Ask yourself - what would Jesus do?
I love your twist on history. These people attacked Muhammad then they get their butts kicked so they get expelled from their nations and Muhammad is the tyrannical one? What was he supposed to do say here I am kill me?
If there is a bunch of people hating on some group, you've got to ask why?

your answer: Humanity is the source of difference, not God.
denying the existence of God is the same as denying Logic, second law of thermodynamics and .... !
And [remember] when I inspired to the disciples, "Believe in Me and in My messenger Jesus." They said, "We have believed, so bear witness that indeed we are Muslims [in submission to Allah ]." -Koran 5:111
And the purpose to quote his "Farewell Sermon" is to illustrate that Muhammad proclaimed religious superiority in his last major public instruction.
Evil will always be evil no matter how many times it claims otherwise, and they shall each receive a mark in there right hand

So it seems that this Muhammad lied, then murdered the guy and married the guys wife. He sounds peaceful to me. I think that this passage you have shown us pretty much sums it all up. Thank you for sharing this. I will pass it on.
The truth is that killing in the name of God is evil, trying to convert someone to your religion upon the pain of an extreme punishment if that someone is non compliant is evil, using the power of religion to start a war and using that religion to continue to convince the masses of the rightness of the war is evil.

That's one of the biggest crocks in Islam. If there truly was no compulsion in Islam they wouldn't murder people who convert to other faiths or call for the murder of infidels.edit on 9-6-2013 by NOTurTypical because: (no reason given)
