Fitna Fitnatun Quran Hadith
This explanation will also shed light on why muslims kill and harass apostates.
Muslims like to say that fitna means 'persecution'. But does it really mean that? Its clear that fitna refers to anything percieved to be un-islamic. Lets read quran 8.39 and then examine the tafsir (explanation of the quran to understand it's context) of Ibn Kathir:
quran 8.39 (in part) - And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world].
Notice how the title below says "The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr". Further down the page, kufr is defined as disbelief. Eradicate disbelief. And it says those who disbelieve have their blood and wealth in danger. Pay special attention to the statement "if and when". And the motive for all this is clealry defined in quran 8.41, with muhammads declaration of how he and islam at large will profit from this. The profits / spoils gained by this violent totalitarian zealotry include females, even little girls. The 20% muhammad keeps for himself and the other 80% is an incentive plan to get people to fight for him. The stated objective of the fighting is to make islam superior. Spread by the sword. The reference to Zakah shows how the plan was to squeeze money from everyone... one way or another. Muhammad and company shrouded pure evil in a plethora of false piety and false righteousness to make all this seem justified.
Tafsir of Ibn Kathir:
The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr (source)
(And fight them until there is no more Fitnah, and the religion will all be for Allah alone.)
Al-Bukhari recorded that a man came to Ibn `Umar and said to him, "O Abu `Abdur-Rahman! Why do you not implement what Allah said in His Book,
(And if two parties (or groups) among the believers fall to fighting...)[49:9]. What prevents you from fighting as Allah mentioned in His Book'' Ibn `Umar said, "O my nephew! I prefer that I be reminded with this Ayah rather than fighting, for in the latter case, I will be reminded by the Ayah in which Allah, the Exalted and Most Honored, said,
(And whoever kills a believer intentionally...) [4:93]''
The man said, "Allah, the Exalted, said,
(And fight them until there is no more Fitnah...).'' Ibn `Umar said, "We did that during the time of the Messenger of Allah, when Islam was weak and the man would be tried in religion, either tormented to death or being imprisoned. When Islam became stronger and widespread, there was no more Fitnah.'' When the man realized that Ibn `Umar would not agree to what he is saying, he asked him, "What do you say about `Ali and `Uthman'' Ibn `Umar replied, "What do I say about `Ali and `Uthman! As for `Uthman, Allah has forgiven him, but you hate that Allah forgives him. As for `Ali, he is the cousin of the Messenger of Allah and his son-in-law,'' and he pointed with his hand saying, "And this is his house over there.'' Sa`id bin Jubayr said, "Ibn `Umar came to us and was asked, "What do you say about fighting during Fitnah'' Ibn `Umar said, "Do you know what Fitnah refers to Muhammad was fighting against the idolators, and at that time, attending (or residing with) the idolators was a Fitnah (trial in religion). It is nothing like what you are doing, fighting to gain leadership!'' All these narrations were collected by Al-Bukhari, may Allah the Exalted grant him His mercy. Ad-Dahhak reported that Ibn `Abbas said about the Ayah,
(And fight them until there is no more Fitnah...) "So that there is no more Shirk.'' Similar was said by Abu Al-`Aliyah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ar-Rabi` bin Anas, As-Suddi, Muqatil bin Hayyan and Zayd bin Aslam. Muhammad bin Ishaq said that he was informed from Az-Zuhri, from `Urwah bin Az-Zubayr and other scholars that
(until there is no more Fitnah) the Fitnah mentioned here means, until no Muslim is persecuted so that he abandons his religion. Ad-Dahhak reported that Ibn `Abbas said about Allah's statement,
(and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah alone.) "So that Tawhid is practiced in sincerity with Allah.'' Al-Hasan, Qatadah and Ibn Jurayj said,
(and the religion will all be for Allah alone) "So that La ilaha illa-llah is proclaimed.'' Muhammad bin Ishaq also commented on this Ayah, "So that Tawhid is practiced in sincerity towards Allah, without Shirk, all the while shunning all rivals who (are being worshipped) besides Him.''
`Abdur-Rahman bin Zayd bin Aslam said about,
(and the religion will all be for Allah alone) "So that there is no more Kufr (disbelief) with your religion remains.'' There is a Hadith collected in the Two Sahihs that testifies to this explanation. The Messenger of Allah said,
(I was commanded to fight against the people until they proclaim, `There is no deity worthy of worship except Allah.' IF AND WHEN they say it, they will preserve their BLOOD AND WEALTH from me, except for its right (Islamic penal code), and their reckoning is with Allah, the Exalted and Most Honored.)
Also, in the Two Sahihs, it is recorded that Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari said, "The Messenger of Allah was asked about a man who fights because he is courageous, in prejudice with his people, or to show off. Which of these is for the cause of Allah He said,
(Whoever fights so that Allah's Word is the supreme, is in the cause of Allah, the Exalted and Most Honored.)''
Allah said next,
(But if they cease), and desist from their Kufr as a result of your fighting them, even though you do not know the true reasons why they did so,
(then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.)
Allah said in similar Ayah,
(But if they repent and perform the Salah, and give Zakah, then leave their way free.) [9:5],
(...then they are your brethren in religion.) [9:11], and,
(And fight them until there is no more Fitnah and the religion (worship) is for Allah (alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against the wrongdoers.) [2:193]
It is recorded in the Sahih that the Messenger of Allah said to Usamah bin Zayd when he overpowered a man with his sword, after that man proclaimed that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah;
(Have you killed him after he proclaimed, `La Ilaha Illallah' What would you do with regard to `La Ilaha Illallah' on the Day of Resurrection.)
Usamah said, "O Allah's Messenger! He only said it to save himself.'' The Messenger replied,
(Did you cut his heart open)
The Messenger kept repeating,
(What would you do with regard to `La Ilaha Illallah' on the Day of Resurrection) until Usamah said, "I wished I had embraced Islam only that day.'' Allah said next,
(And if they turn away, then know that Allah is your protector, an excellent protector, and an excellent helper!)
Allah says, if the disbelievers persist in defying and fighting you, then know that Allah is your protector, master and supporter against your enemies. Verily, what an excellent protector and what an excellent supporter.
(41. And know that whatever of war booty that you may gain, verily, one-fifth of it is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives (of the Messenger), the orphans, the poor, and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Criterion, the Day when the two forces met; and Allah is able to do all things.)
So much for peace and tolerance huh? And so much for 'no compulsion in religion'. I'm 100% serious when I say that the information muslims tell non-muslims and what their actual motives are usually very different. One of the main purposes of this blog you are reading now is to point out that the motives of islam are to create an islamic new world order (NWO). Dont let the islamic propoganda machine try to sell you that muslims are being 'marginalized', when quran 9.29 CLEARLY commands muslims to marginalize all non-muslims. Dont let them try to sell you that muslims are being 'demonized' when the quran is PACKED with demonization of non-muslims. Yet how many people actually know that? The islamic propoganda machine is banking on very few.
Fitna (fitnah, fitnatun) and the way it is used in quran 8.39 and 2.193 is a clear demonstration of this. For muslims, much of creating this islamic NWO is based on exploiting the gullibility of the west, exploiting the west's lack of knowledge of islamic imperialism, and muslims ability to decieve non-muslims about their motives (taqiyya, tuqya). Look at the arabic transliteration and specifically the word 'kulluhu' in 8.39. Kulluhu means 'entirely'. In short, quran 8.39 is saying 'fight non-muslims throughout the world'. And of course the Profit Muhammad© benefits from this in quran 8.41, and the idea was to finance islam on the material and human spoils of conquest.
Study the rise of the Third Reich in nazi Germany, and you'll see that Hitler used the same tactic to rid Germany of 'fitna'. He simply outlawed opposing political parties. This is how dictatorships and totalitarian theocracies and ideologies are born, and explains why these are the main forms of government historically in the Middle East. Apostates and non-muslims are considered kufr and the reasons for 'fitna' and quran 8.39 clearly calls for their eradication. Look at the translations of quran 9.123 and you'll see a similar deception of how some of the translators are trying to portray this verse in a defensive posture instead of the offensive posture that it is. 9.123 is instructions on how to establish a foothold in an area and expand by treating the non-muslims in a harsh manner to drive the fitna out. This is happening in Europe and many other places now. A more in depth look at this is discussed here.
It's very clear that the:
- existance of
- influence from
- temptation from
When the muslims and their defenders portray it as 'tumult and oppression' and 'persecution', the gullible non-muslims take them at their word for it and the deception continues.
