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!

Simon 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.
