Myth vs Fact-Part 135

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 267:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, “Khosrau will be ruined, and there will be no Khosrau after him, and Caesar will surely be ruined and there will be no Caesar after him, and you will spend their treasures in Allah’s Cause.” He called, “War is deceit’.

  1. […] Well, it’s not exactly a new way, but Beth shows extra brio by skipping over the actual Koran and ‘exposing’ out-of-context passages from other religious texts. For instance, here’s the latest proof of the depravity of all Muslims, yanked OMG-style from a Sunni hadith, i.e. a collection of oral commentary considered uncanonical by Shi’a: Myth vs Fact […]

  2. From Number 13:

    1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    2Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.

    3And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian.

    4Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.

    5So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

    6And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.

    7And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

    8And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

    9And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.

    10And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.

    11And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts.

    12And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.

    13And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

    14And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.

    15And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

    16Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

    17Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

    18But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

  3. Sadly, your criticism falls flat in a pile of your own feces. This installment of Myth vs Fact follows more than one hundred similar installments which featured quotes from the Qur’an. This hadith is from Bukhari’s collection, considered to be the most reliable, which is why its labeled Sahih.

    Both Qur’an & Hadith lack context & chronology. There is a valid reason for linking each quote to the source: the link empowers you to verify the quote and read the other hadith surrounding it. For those hadith mentioned in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir,I will include a link to the Tafsir topic as well.

    If you truly seek context & chronology, turn to and spend a month reading The Prophet of Doom by Craig Winn.

  4. reat, your tactic is called argumentum Tu Quoque. It is a logical fallacy because it ignores the factual basis of the charge leveled and projects the same charge onto the critic.

    What ancient Hebrews & Roman Christians did is irrelevant. There is no biblical equivalent of the open ended, unlimited commands to make war expressed in 8:39 & 9:29. Islam’s purpose is motivating men to engage in piracy for the enrichment and empowerment of Muhammad and his Caliphs.

    Muhammad sent an extortion letter to the Persian Emperor; Umar followed up by sending his army. Persia was conquered.

    Here is what Umar’s general said to the Persians:
    “Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.”

    That is what Islam is all about. The Myth vs Fact series offers ample proof of this fatal fact.

  5. Great pieces Beth…notice how sad, Sadly No is with their lack of education?

  6. Education? DO they even know what that is?
