Smiling in Our Faces, While Cursing Us in Their Hearts

Qur'an 3:28—Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security. Allah biddeth you beware (only) of Himself. Unto Allah is the journeying.

Ibn Kathir on 3:28—Allah said next, (unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda' said, "We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.'' Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, "The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.''

This is what I'm noticing. Islam is so bad, people seem to just refuse to believe that it can possibly be that bad and accuse you of lying or making things up or being unfair. Gosh, especially when compared to Christianity.

I told people in my small group last semester to study Islam and read the Quran, because I think it is such an amazing backdrop against which Jesus is all the more beautiful, all the more magnificent. It is so bad that just in studying Islam I am filled with awe and love for the goodness of the true God.

Thank God the Bible doesn't read like the Quran! Man!

And this video is an example. People would refuse to believe that the information in this video can possibly be accurate, Islam can't possibly be that bad, there must be some mistake. Anyway, that was an observation that just hit me with this video. Islam is so bad, that in describing it you make yourself suspect of bigotry and bias.

God is good.

Love in Christ,

This is what many politicians do, only Islam has its writings as manuals to direct them. Had it not been for oil money would these guys get away with so much? The love of money truly is the root of all evil.

I guess my concern would be "is there such a thing as a truly moderate Muslim?". There may be nominal Muslims those who do not practice the religion meaning they are not true Muslims but there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.

it doesnt matter if its oil money or not. these sick minded muslims want to kill u period. its not the money they want. i think its clear with all this terrorism going on. if they were peaceful like they say they r they wud leave islam for Jesus.

I meant those who bend over backwards to appease warmongers. The 'oil world' has a hold over others, which is why so many mosques are being built in the non-Muslim world.
Man, am i glad Christ is coming back soon. You think i would sleep easy if i didn't believe this!

sam said...

i just want to apologize for saying that all muslims r not peaceful. BUT THERE R VERY FEW WHO DO CARE FOR OTHERS.

governors in the US are simply being bribed with saudi money to agree to this nonsense by these islamic deceivers. Governors should have their bank accounts and financial investments investigated.

Islam is a Lie!

There is no other God, beside jesus Christ. Muslims are devil worshiper, they know what Quran say is wrong and they still fallowing and worship that filthy cult religion.

your taking things out of context here, in trying to understand what the verse means. first of all you can't just translate one verse without understanding the context around it. so to know the true meaning, read the whole thing and read the whole translation of "sorat emran" , quick answer, it's meant for a time off war only. ( unless your fine with CIA and KGB double agents in cold war context ).

Islam is privilege!! and there is no compulsion in religion according to God himself. Islam is the word of God as it was revealed to Jesus himself and Moses and Muhammad. All of them were men whom were sent as prophets to their people to convey the message they were sent with. All of them were Muslimeen! submitters to God. None of them taught the people to worship other than God but taught those they were sent to worship God alone without any partners in His Lordship.

Islam is guidance, mercy and healing sent to all Mankind. Islam is the only religion God accepts according to God. Islam is the religion all prophets in all revelation were sent to teach and convey to Mankind. Islam is happiness, tranquility whilst disbelieve is darkness and unhappiness. The disbelieving soul lives under the curses of God each and every day so long as they are under disbelieve and rejection of the truth. Read and learn to save your soul. Read the Quran and learn who made you, why you are here in this world and what is the point of life.

@EA, you're dead wrong!

S.4:82. Do they not ponder the Quran? Had it been from any other than God, they would have found in it much discrepancy.

S.7:158. Say, “O people, I am the Messenger of God to you all—He to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He.

S.23:14. Then We developed the seed into a clot. Then We developed the clot into a lump. Then We developed the lump into bones. Then We clothed the bones with flesh. Then We produced it into another creature. Most Blessed is God, the Best of Creators.

Don't go to Hell for anyone.

[Jhn 20:19a NLT] 19 That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders.."
According to the Jewish Talmud, Jesus is boiling in hell, in animal feces. I dont even think the Quran goes that far, as I believe that Muslims at least think he was a good prophet. I dont identify with a particular church, but examining things from the outside, I see equal amount of hatred for Christians from both the Muslims and the Jews. Just have a listen to this Rabbi. Despite his obvious rage, I agree with some of what he says, that modern Christians have effectively shirked all responsibility for their actions through an obscured version of salvation, as if their actions dont matter. They do matter. The bravest of all Jesus' 12 disciples said so. (1Jn 3:10)
