Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.10.3


O10.3

As for the first fifth that is taken from the spoils, it is divided in turn into five parts, a share each going to:

-1- the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), and after his death, to such Islamic interests as fortifying defenses on the frontiers, salaries for Islamic judges, muezzins, and the like;

-2- relatives of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) of the Bani Hashim and Bani Muttalib clans, each male receiving the share of two females;

-3- orphans who are poor;

-4- those short of money (def: h8.11);

-5- and travellers needing money (h8.18).

Bottom Line:
  • Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on the division of spoils?
  • Why do 8:1 and 8:41 exist in the Qur’an?
  • Why does this hadith exist?

Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.

It is time to pull your head out of your anal orifice, wipe the drek from your eyes, and take a clear eyed look at objective factual reality. You have been lied to; fed excrement and you swallowed it. Islam is not a religion of peace. It is not a religion. Islam is permanent war.

In the Myth vs Fact series, I showed you the relevant Qur’an verses. I showed you many of the relevant hadith. I showed you the relevant Sharia. I gave you links to those documents so that you can verify what I posted.

Ibn Kathir, in his Tafsir, which explains the meaning of the Qur’an, rolls the Qur’an & Hadith together with extreme clarity. Here, once more, is a concentrated list of the most relevant Tafsir topics. Click the links and read them all for review.

None of that is consistent with ‘religion of peace’; not the orders to fight, not the promise of world domination.
Islam is not peace, it is permanent war until we are dead or subjugated and extorted. The previous sentence contains a link to an ebook, written by an Indian radio journalist, which documents the same facts brought out in this series.

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.10.2


O10.2

As for personal booty, anyone who, despite resistance, kills one of the enemy or effectively incapacitates him, risking his own life thereby, is entitled to whatever he can take from the enemy, meaning as much as he can take away with him in the battle, such as a mount, clothes, weaponry, money, or other.

Bottom Line:
  • Why does the ‘religion of peace’ contemplate war?
  • Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on personal spoils?

Chapter O10.0: The Spoils of Battle

O10.1

A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it.

After personal booty (def: o10.2), the collective spoils of the battle are divided into five parts. The first fifth is set aside (dis: o10.3), and the remaining four are distributed, one share to each infantryman and three shares to each cavalryman. From these latter four fifths also, a token payment is given at the leader’s discretion to women, children, and non-Muslim participants on the Muslim side.A combatant only takes possession of his share of the spoils at the official division. (A: Or he may choose to waive his right to it.)

Bottom Line: What need has the ‘religion of peace’ for legal rulings on the division of spoils of war?

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.16


O9.16: Truces

(O: As for truces, the author does not mention them. In Sacred Law truce means a peace treaty with those hostile to Islam, involving a cessation of fighting for a specified period, whether for payment or something else. The scriptural basis for them includes such Koranic verses as:

-1- “An acquittal from Allah and His messenger…” (Koran 9:1);

-2- “If they incline towards peace, then incline towards it also” (Koran 8.61);

as well as the truce which the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made Quraysh in the year of Hudaybiya, as related by Bukhari and Muslim.

Truces are permissible, not obligatory. The only one who may effect a truce is the Muslim ruler of a region (or his representative) with a segment of the non-Muslims of the region, or the caliph (o25) (or his representative). When made with other than a portion of the non-Muslims, or when made with all of them, or with all in a particular region such as India or Asia Minor, then only the caliph (or his representative) may effect it, for it is a matter of the gravest consequence whether globally or in a given locality, and our interests must be looked after therein, which is why it is best left to the caliph under any circumstances, or to someone he delegates to see to the interests of the various regions.

There must be some interest served in making a truce other than mere preservation of the status quo.

Allah Most High says,

“So do not be faint-hearted and call for peace, when it is you who are the uppermost” (Koran 47:35).

Interests that justify making a truce are such things as Muslim weakness because of lack of members or materiel, or the hope of an enemy becoming Muslim, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce in the year Mecca was liberated with Safwan ibn Umayya for four months in hope that he would become Muslim, and he entered Islam before its time was up. If the Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce with Quraysh for that long, as is related by Abu Dawud. It is not permissible to stipulate longer than that, save by means of new truces, each of which does not exceed ten years.

The rulings of such a truce are inferable from those of the non-Muslim poll tax (def: o11); namely, that when a valid truce has been effected, no harm may be done to non-Muslims until it expires.)

O9.15

It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy’s trees and destroy their dwellings.


Bottom Line: It is ok to destroy the assetts which make life possible for your victims, their crops and their shelter. Why in Hell does the ‘religion of peace’ have such rulings in its canon of jurisprudence?

O9.14

When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: o25) considers the interests (O: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.

If the prisoner becomes a Muslim (O: before the caliph chooses any of the four alternatives) then he may not be killed, and one of the other three alternatives is chosen.

Bottom Line: Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on prisoners of war? Why is it so detailed?
Why does the “religion of peace” have a legal ruling on captive women & children? The incongruity stands out like a pig’s snout.

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.9

O9.9

The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y21), 6.48-49) ).

Bottom Line: What does the Caliph do?

  • The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim

The Caliph makes war upon ‘people of the book’ and he fights all other peoples until they become Muslim or dead.

That is Islamic law, God damn it! Islam, as defined by:

  • its scripture: the Qur’an
  • its tradition: the Hadith
  • its law: the Sharia

is not a religion, it is permanent war!

When do those orders expire?

Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

Jihad continues from 610 to the end of the world. What happens if the Muslims discontinue Jihad in favor of more productive pursuits?

Abu DawudBook 23, Number 3455:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

Allah will curse them if they abandon Jihad.

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.8

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),

the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

“I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”

this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

Tafsir

What does the Caliph do? How long does he do it? How frequently does he do it? Why does he do it?

  • The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians
  • the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax
  • “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year. [O9.1]
  • Because Allah commanded it: 9:29.

That is Sharia, Islamic law. Do you give a damn? What will you do about it??

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.0

Chapter O9.0: Jihad

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.

“We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.”

The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as:

-1- “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216);

-2- “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89);

-3- “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36);

and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;

and the hadith reported by Muslim,

“To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)

Tafsir

Jihad means to make war on us. Damn! We thought it was striving against ego & temptation. We weren’t thinking clearly, were we?

“Warfare to establish the religion”? But Islam wasn’t spread by the sword, was it. Only damn fools believe that.

Take a cold, clear second look at Islamic law defining Jihad:

  • Jihad means to war against non-Muslims
  • signifying warfare to establish the religion.

Islamic law cites the scriptural basis for offensive Jihad, then it cites Moe’s egregious statements about it.

Compare the highlighted clauses above to Hilali & Khan’s footnote to 2:190.

V. 2:190) Al-Jihad (holy fighting) ln AlIah’s Cause (with full force of numbers
and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars
(on
which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior, (His
Word belng La Haha illallah which means none has the right to be worshipped but
Allah), and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah
protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior
position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish.

Jihad is an obligatory duty In Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape
from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfil this duty, dies with
one of the qualities of a hypocrite.
Narrated Abdullah bin Masud I asked Allah’s Messenger, ‘O Allah’s Messenger!
what is th e best deed?’ He replied, “To offer the Salat (prayers) at their early fixed
stated times.’ I asked, ‘What is next ln goodness?” He replied, ‘To be good and
dutlful to your parents.” I further asked, ‘What is next in goodness?’ He replied,
‘To participate in Jihad in Allaha’s Cause.’ I did not ask AIIAh’s Messenger anymore
and if l had asked him more. he would have told me more. (Sahi Al-Bukhari VoI.4. Hadith N¤.41).

The clauses I have emphasized should make the matter crystal clear, beyond any doubt. The translators of the Noble Qur’an are obviously in agreement with Sharia.

  • Jihad means to war against non-Muslims
  • signifying warfare to establish the religion.
  • Al-Jihad (holy fighting) ln AlIah’s Cause
  • By Jihad Islam is established
  • Allah’s Word is made superior
  • and His Religion (Islam) is propagated
