IS ISLAM AN IDEOLOGY OF PEACE?

Dear Everyone,

It is easy today to hear many things from various sources.  One of the modern day mantras is that Islam is a Religion of Peace.  Upon closer inspection neither Muhammad nor any of his early followers used this argument as they defeated the Polytheists, Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Buddhists, Hindus and Sub-Sahara African polytheists and animists on the battlefield. 20th Century Pakistani Muslim scholar Abdul Maududi stated the following:

“But the truth is that Islam is not the name of a ‘Religion,’ nor is ‘Muslim’ the title of a ‘Nation.’  In reality, Islam is a revolutionary ideology and program which seeks to alter the social order of the whole world and rebuild it in conformity with its own tenets and ideals. Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it.  The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.” [CMAA emphasis]

This is why I identified Islam in this piece as an ideology, not a religion.  Islam certainly includes aspects of religion especially when Muslims are performing rites and rituals with the desire to please their deity and when the practice of these rites and rituals have no adverse impact on non-Muslims. The remainder of the material found in the authoritative tests of Islam are political, socio-economic, and military in nature. The application of these Islamic principles have an adverse impact on non-Muslims and are therefore not religious.  Imposing one’s will to impose fear or force conformity on those who do not identify with Islam does not constitute religion rather an ideology that tolerates no rivals – it is expected that in time all will submit to Allah. The term “Islam” literally means “Submission;” the term “Muslim” literally means “one who submits.”  This is not the labeling one would expect from a “religion of peace” or a belief system based upon love, grace, and mercy.  View the citations listed below and determine what constitutes religious faith or the zealous imposition of a political ideology.

Muslim B1N142; Bukhari V1B6N304“O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.’ A wise lady said: Why is it, Allah’s Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell? The Prophet observed: ‘You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.’ Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, ‘Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.”

Muslim:B17C5N4206– “[…] There came to him [Muhammad] a woman of Ghamid and said: Allah’s Messenger, I have committed adultery, so purify me. He turned her away. On the following day she said: Allah’s Messenger, why do you turn me away? Perhaps, you turn me away as you turned away Ma’iz [another who committed adultery] By Allah, I have become pregnant. He [Muhammad] said: Well, if you insist upon it, then go away until you give birth to the child. When she was delivered she came with the child wrapped in a rag and said: He is the child whom I have given birth to. He said: Go away and suckle him until you wean him. When she had weaned him she came to him with the child who was holding a piece of bread in his hand. He entrusted the child to one of the Muslims [took the child from her] and then pronounced [her] punishment. And she was put [cast] into a ditch [pit] and he commanded people [to kill her] and they stoned her [to death]. […]”

The Prophet ordered him to be slain because while he was a Muslim, Muhammad sent him to collect the Zakat tax with an Ansar and a slave of his [Abdallah bin Khatal, the Muslim tax collector, killed the slave for being disobedient. Abdallah did not report his wrongdoing. He then rejected Islam and used the tax money he collected on a few girls.].

For non-Muslims reading this, kindly do not focus on violent verses, but rather on the grace imparted by our Lord.  Use this to get closer to Jesus.  If you are not attending a church or attending a church where you are not growing then you are not getting closer to Jesus.  Jesus our Lord loves Muslims because he wants all people to find salvation in him.  Muslims follow what they have been taught.  Certainly we must protect ourselves from those who want to practice Political Islam [Sunni and Shi’a literalists} but for those who want only to practice the religious aspects of Islam there is opportunity to share our hope with them [Sufis, Almadiyya and secularized Sunni’s and Shi’a who are not dissimulating]. Muslims who come to accept the Lordship of Jesus become the best of Christians because they know where they were and are grateful to God above that he has made provision for their sins. Professing Christians can only share what they have. If you really possess Christ in your heart you will have him to share.  The Biblical verses cited above should give professing Christians reason to deepen their faith and should give Muslims reason to question what they have been taught is true.  With the advent of social media it has been made easier for them to reach out to those who possess the gospel and help lead them to forgiveness and salvation in Jesus Christ Our Lord.
